Taqiyya – Islamic Lies and Why Non-Muslims Should Study the Quran

If you have ever had a discussion with a follower of Islam, you may have noticed they often deny things that are directly written in their holy book.

Mujahideen (one engaged in Jihad) who commit martyrdom are told in the Quran, Hadith and Sura:

Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.

Quran (2:207) – “And there is the type of man who gives his life to earn the pleasure of Allah…”

Sahih Bukhari (52:54) – The words of Muhammad: “I would love to be martyred in Allah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.”

Sahih Bukhari (52:46) – “Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.”

Yet whenever there are victims of Islamic extremists, apologists swarm in a desperate attempt to avoid the problem with endless “Not All’s” and calls that Islam is a religion of peace in the face of terrorism inspired and motivated by that same ‘religion of peace’.

While there are obviously individuals in denial who are genuinely convinced of this narrative, we always have groups like CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations) and AFIC (Australian Federation of Islamic Councils) who come out of the woodwork and blame everything else instead of their violent, bronze-age ideology.

Guns, Racism, ‘Islamophobia’. All of these excuses are put forward with the support of Muslim scholars and adherents.

But that is the issue – these scholars are much more educated on the ins-and-outs of their religion and the ways to manipulate it for their own benefit, allowing Islamist’s to continue their agenda and continue the spread of this disease.

The reason they can tell these lies is because they are told to:

Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true as it relates to the Muslim identity.

Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”

Tawriya – Intentionally creating a false impression.

Muruna – ‘Blending in’ by setting aside some practices of Islam or Sharia in order to advance others. (ReligionofPeace.com)

All of these concepts are within Islam and are designed to deceive non-believers in pursuit of advancing the cult.

This is why it is so important not to take a Muslim on face value regarding Islam. Always be prepared to do your own research so when you call them out for the violent verses in their holy book or explain how their prophet Muhammad was a child-raping warlord who spread his beliefs at the point of the sword, you can present them with the information directly. While they may continue to deny the truth, this allows anyone who may not be as educated on the topic to learn.

The best way to beat Islam in the West is to know it, to debate it and to show regressive’s who have bought into the ‘Religion of Peace’ propaganda, that they have been lied to and taken advantage of as useful idiots.

The pendulum has swung. Normal people are now seeing the death-cult for what it is. But we must keep fighting.

The West prides itself on things like secularism, democracy, freedom of speech, movement and religion and we must utilize these things to defeat the right-wing theocrat’s who wish to make a Caliphate of the world.

  1. Coincidentally, I posted about this yesterday on my Fb community page “Speak Freely”. [and have had to rebutt that verse 5:32 several times]. The relevant article was this: https://islaminaustralia.com/2017/01/06/prophet-muhammad-%EF%B7%BA-example-for-all-times/

    About Mohammed: ” Here was someone who in a period of 23 years, took his people from being the weakest, most despised and oppressed in their community to being the leaders and role models in the same community. And he did all that without lies, cheating, corruption, violence or bloodshed.”
    I will repost your blog above to Speak Freely to make readers aware of the 4 elements of taqiyya.
    Thanks for your excellent site and work.


  2. • Our country has opened the doors to multiculturalism through the good old Aussie spirit of a fair go, open arms to refugees, acceptance of peoples of all walks of life irrespective of language, race, colour or creed’ This has now begun the demise of Australia as we know it.
    • It is now time for all Australians to stand up and be counted to oppose all political parties that support and encourage the integration of those peoples who come to our country under the banner of refugee when in actual fact they are fleeing their countries due to internal political disruption and ongoing civil wars that are partly funded by the major Western powers.
    • We are now subjected through our open immigration laws to peoples entering our country and carrying the baggage of their past and after assimilation blatantly abuse our concept of democracy of the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion and the freedom of life.
    • We have people in Australia who have been accepted into our country who blatantly assert that Sharia law is above Australian law , these people are allowed to move freely in Australia expounding this view and exhorting others to reject Australian laws and subversively undermine the laws as we in Australia know and accept.
    • Through our waning and lazed supervision of our concept of refugee and immigrant we have now through many successive governments been blindly led into the acceptance of the word multiculturalism at the expense of Australian beliefs and ideologies.
    • I believe in the following.
    • Immediate withdrawal from the United Nations
    • Indefinite embargo on the acceptance of Refugees who are of the Islamic persuasion.
    • The immediate halving of all overseas aid, National disasters exempt.
    • Implementation of Military Service of Two year’s tenure for all those leaving High School and moving into the Welfare queue. Immediate removal from all Federal, State and Local Government offices, those members who are in breach of the requirements as laid down in the Australian Constitution.

    • Immediate closure of all Islamic Schools, Mosques and Places of learning. The property and assets to be appropriated to the Government.
    • Immediate removal of the requirement for all Australian foodstuffs to be Halal certified.
    • Immediate removal of the 457 Visa programme.
    • Immediate adoption of a National Zero Policy in regards to Non Residents criminal activities.
    • Non Residents convicted in any Australian Federal court be deported immediately having served their term of imprisonment, where holding dual citizenship, also implementation of a policy of No Court of Appeal or access to Australian Free Legal Aid.
    • Notwithstanding the above, the immediate families of convicted non residents to be deported immediately where holding dual citizenship.
    • All Politicians relinquish all rights to the Government Gold parliamentary privileges after retirement,
    Free Travel, and all allowances that reflect on their previous employment.
    • The Parliamentary term be for the full term and the nominated Leader, Prime Minister, be retained for the full tenure, with no prerogative of the standing Party to change Leadership.
    • Medicare is retained in its present form but open for further analysis at a later date.
    • Immediate overhaul of the Taxation payments of Australian businesses, with overseas shareholders, investors and Directors.
    • The immediate upgrading of the Australian Defence Force to five times its present status.
    • Immediate negotiations with Russia in regards to Bi-lateral trade and Global security.
    • The immediate investigation of the plight of Australia’s rural industries in regards to drought relief, sustainability and production.
    • The immediate cessation of sales of any Australian land to overseas investors, further prohibiting the investment of any overseas country into Australia’s Natural resources and minerals.
    The immediate appropriation of all Australia’s natural resources and minerals, currently operated and owned by single Australian entities, back to the Government, to be managed by the Government of Australia.
    The immediate closure and non recognition of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils.
    I stand under the Flag of a Christian Religion, and oppose the Islamification of Australia


  3. Not all Men were born with Humanitarian mentality, some people have never evolved from the barbaric days in century’s of existence, certain people who the Western world calls refugees, cannot, will not and do not know how to assimilate or integrate into Western world society.
    These are people who have no concept of the modern world, yet our answer is to accept and educate these people, we hand them cell phones and teach them what a centre link queue is, our taxpayers support these people by providing housing, food and allowances, far beyond what any unfortunate Australian would get, these people come from a world far beyond the Western world, a World where men do not work, they procreate and spend their days debating subjects of the Islamic Law, yet we streamline them for medical attention, we streamline them for welfare benefits.
    Yes and contrary to the Xenophon followers and the Pauline Hanson disbelievers, there are Muslims ripping off this country for millions in welfare, where does it end, Halal taxes that all Australians pay, and the bloody Government doesn’t know where it’s going or who is profiting, a childcare fraud by Muslims, again millions disappearing out of the country, not one word by our Politicians into a Royal commission.
    An Islamic Deputy Mayor in Sydney whose property developments are under scrutiny, The CEO of Australia Post, a Muslim who can donate millions of dollars to the Islamic museum in Canberra , Billions of Australian dollars being handed out to hundreds of Islamic Mosques, Schools, Universities and a myriad of Islamic institutions all in the name of charitable organisations because we recognise Islam as a Religion instead of what it is, an Ideology.
    And now we have our Prime Minister visiting America, to shake the hand of a President, who has already sold his country out to Islam, and why is our Prime Minister there? To discuss Australia’s position in helping to resolve the Global refugee problem, Turnbull does not realize that he is bringing the Liberal Party to a close, the days of Liberal and Labor, we are seeing the end of a staid archaic tradition of Government in Australia.
    The people of Australia are tired of the revolving doors of Governments and leaders, now we have a Prime Minister with definite leanings towards the Muslims and their quest for the Islamification of Australia. Turnbull has always held a desire for Australia to become a Republic, his reasons for this are clear to those Australian’s who have the foresight to see the future, as a Republic, Turnbull would be the first President, from then on, Australia’s Constitution comes under threat, threat by allowing any major voting party to take control of the Parliament of the Republic, thereby removing the need for adherence to the Australian Constitution, This in effect will give a major ruling voting public, such as Muslims, the ability to place their own choice as Leader of the Australian Republic, this in turn will see the demise of the Australian Constitution and replacement with Sharia Law.
    Australia is going through the throes of Islamification now, Australia will one day, look back on the demise of Abbott, a true Australian, and rue the day we allowed an Islamic empathetic Prime Minister, to take his place, Australia, don’t bother turning out the lights, Turnbull will already have done that, when he closed his ears to the voices of the people. If Australian’s cannot see what is unfolding before their eyes with our Government, then lower the Flag.
    The rise of the Independents, Parties like One Nation and certain other Politicians like Cory Bernardi, is the awakening signs for all Australia, the days of the Liberal and Labor Government are closing, Australia wants to stand on its own two feet, not be dictated to by Politicians who are fly by night merchants feathering their nests, with no interest in the long term view of Australia as a vibrant and industrious part of the Global world.
    Politicians, who see Parliament as a means of making big finances. The biggest problem that is affecting the world at the moment is the brainwashing of the people, into believing that the refugee problem stems from war, bullshit upon bullshit, the refugee problem began decades ago, and yes it was programmed, a political venture began behind the walls of all public knowledge, its first Global endeavours started with the infiltration of the United Nations, its aim to get all countries to hand over responsibility to the UN. It has happened to a certain degree, One World Order was implemented, One Globe, One Religion or One Belief, all administered by the UN, the reigning powers being Saudi Arabia, how did they get this far ?, the American elections are coming up, the Clinton foundation seems to have much to do with the Saudi Arabia countries in regards to financial assistance in many ways, Obama has demonstrated a poor responsibility towards his country and is pro Islamic immigration, his Presidency is bringing his country to its knees.
    Germany with their Chancellor Merkel, in all honesty, what idiot would invite over a million people into their country knowing full well you can’t train them, let alone employ them or support them? Well dear Australians, that is exactly what the Greens and every other bleeding heart wants to do to our country, Bob Katter spelt it out quite clearly, how the bloody hell can we accept more of these pseudo refugees into this country, train and educate them for bloody jobs we already don’t bloody have.
    The biggest threat to Australia is not refugees or immigrants, it’s the perverted Ideology of Islam, and how do we classify a refugee? the UN doesn’t even know how to classify a refugee these days, yet this is the body that dictates who Australia should take in, how many, how often, they even just knocked us back for being selective in only wanting to accept Christian Muslim refugees first, what sort of shit has Julia Bishop and Malcolm Turnbull signed us up to with the United Nations????
    Remember the UN is also the ruling Global body that elected Saudi Arabia as its head of the Human rights commission, much like making an arsonist the head of the local fire station. The Islamification of Australia is progressing at a much faster rate than you know, at every turn our Politicians turn a blind eye.
    My biggest complaint, and I have a few, how the bloody hell did two Muslims sign into our Parliament by swearing on the Koran?? This appears to go against our constitution, yet not one word out of our Prime Ministers mouth or the Liberal Senator QC Attorney General George Brandis? It is time all our Politicians listen to the people and recognise the fact that multiculturalism does not work, it’s a one sided affair, Becoming a member of the Australian community, as a refugee, demands respect and obedience to the laws of Australia.
    We have, through our immigration policies, now opened a Pandora’s Box in regards to Muslims. We have Muslims now in Australian society, drawing on our taxpayer benefits, contributing nothing to the Australian community, yet demanding rights that they saw fit to leave in their homelands. The whole concept of the Islamic world is one of infiltration and subjugating by subversion. Their concept of the world is Islamic domination. They have successfully accomplished this in America and Germany and certain other European countries to an extent.

    The reason this has been able to be done, is through their intrinsic beliefs that Islam is a religion, and the idiocy of nations that cannot differentiate between what is a refugees, and what is an invasion.
    Islam is not a religion, Islam is an ideology that shapes society, and the thinking of individuals, it is an ideology that is used to control a society where the individual has no beliefs except that which is dictated by a law that was expounded by one man.
    Integration is a two way street, at least it was once, when one of the Party refuses to integrate it becomes a different story, when one of the party uses a perverted Ideology as a Religion to subvert society then it is not integration, when the Quran prohibits integration with Infidels, then the terminology of integration goes out the window, and is replaced with the words Invasion for Subversive means.
    I find the Ideology of Islam repulsive and a crime against Humanity, we must fight to eradicate the germ of Islam, and all its carriers from Australia’s shores, we must not be silenced by this Government, a Government that does not see through the eyes of the Australian people on the street, we must not invite the enemy into our backyard, we must not even try to Integrate with Satan, we must not turn the other cheek to Islamic violence in our country, while the Government hides under the beliefs of misguided refugees, we must fight against the building of Mosques in Australia, places of spreading the evil beliefs that are written in the Handbook of War, their Quran, we must oppose the establishment of teaching universities and schools who advocate the tenets of Satan.
    It is time Australia, recognised the fact, that Islam is not a religion but a Perverted Ideology, that if not checked now, will breach Australia’s security as it has done in European Countries. In support of this statement we need to remember the point that all Muslims are born under the Sharia law, an Islamic ideology. Muslims who stray from the Islamic ideology, become apostates or infidels.
    The Islamic ideology is contrary to the global humanitarian way of life, its beliefs and culture. Countries around the world, Australia included, need to debate the subject, of Islam as a Religion or Ideology. Pauline Hanson and The One Nation Senators recognise this need, if it is a Religion, then is it compatible and harmonious to our western Judea/Christian beliefs, and conducive to assimilation and integration into our culture? If it is not a Religion but an Ideology, then again we ask the question, is the Islamic Ideology also conducive to harmonious assimilation and integration into global culture.
    At the moment throughout the world, it is becoming clearer each day, that Islam is an Ideology which is incompatible with every western and European country. The people of Australia should find the Ideology of Islamic beliefs to be a credible threat to Australia.
    Our country is following the same path as America, Germany, Canada and a lot of European countries, Obama has sold America to Muslim refugees, Merkel has sold out Germany and the European Unions to the Muslims, Trudeau in Canada has sold out Canada to the Muslims, Britain slowly recognised too late that multiculturalism does not work, and now Malcolm Turnbull has been invited to discuss the refugee situation with Obama.
    The world political stage is changing fast, Australia needs to let go its ties to America as a military ally, and Obama has lost all credibility as portraying America as a World leader. Maybe the alliance with America could be maintained and built on under a President like Trump. Either way Australia must find options apart from America as an Ally
    Putin has stepped into his shoes quite easily. Australia now needs to shake off the shackles of America as a Global ally and start building alliances with Russia and other mutual harmonious countries, sadly Australia has this out of date idea of loyalty to America, a loyalty forged through mutual support during the Second World War, but we cannot afford to cling to the apron strings of a sinking ship, America’s political debacle foreshadows a bleak future on the world stage, Australia needs to withdraw rapidly before we are dragged down into the wake of their instability, our first step must be to withdraw as a member of The United Nations.
    Australia must learn to defend its own country, its own beliefs, way of life and culture, we must build our Defence forces to a size treble of what it currently is, we must object vehemently to the introduction of a perverted Ideology into our country that will subvert and change Australia completely, we must not listen to the bleeding hearts of the Greens and others who want to open this country to Muslims and their Sharia law.
    At the end of the day, do not stand in support of the Devil himself, Islam, for at the time of reckoning, no Muslim will stand beside you, and neither will I


  4. Question:

    Taqiyya is the Islamic doctrine that allows Muslims to lie to non-Muslims and the Prophet Muhammad said “War is deceit.” So can we trust what any Muslim says?


    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

    According to Lane’s Lexicon, Taqiyya comes from the root word meaning “to be cautious, to guard.” When a Muslim’s life is being threatened, it is permissible to deny Allah and His Messenger if that will save his life or protect him from harm. Such permission was necessary at the time when Muslims were being persecuted, tortured, and killed simply for being a Muslim. Muslims are never allowed to lie for political or religious reasons, but rather only for security reasons.

    Allah said:

    مَن كَفَرَ بِاللَّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إِيمَانِهِ إِلَّا مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالْإِيمَانِ وَلَٰكِن مَّن شَرَحَ بِالْكُفْرِ صَدْرًا فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ

    Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief, except for one who is forced to renounce his religion while his heart is secure in faith, but those who willingly open their hearts to unbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah and for them is a great punishment.

    Surah An-Nahl 16:106

    Ibn Kathir comments on this verse, saying:

    فَهُوَ اسْتِثْنَاءٌ مِمَّنْ كَفَرَ بِلِسَانِهِ وَوَافَقَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ بِلَفْظِهِ مُكْرَهًا لِمَا نَالَهُ مِنْ ضَرْبٍ وَأَذًى وَقَلْبُهُ يَأْبَى مَا يَقُولُ وَهُوَ مُطَمْئِنٌ بِالْإِيمَانِ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ

    This is an exception in the case of one who utters statements of unbelief and verbally agrees with the idolaters because he is forced to do so by their beatings and abuse to which he is subjected, but his heart refuses to accept what he is saying, while he is in reality at peace with his faith in Allah and His Messenger.

    Source: Tafseer Ibn Kathir 16:106

    It is only in these specific circumstances, in which a Muslim faces harm and persecution, that he or she is allowed to lie in self-defense. The general rule is that a Muslim should always speak the truth and be just, even when truth and justice are not in favor of the Muslims.

    Allah said:

    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ ۚ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا ۖ فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا ۚ وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرًا

    O you who believe, be persistently standing firm in justice as witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or your parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. Follow not your desires, lest you not be just, and if you distort your testimony or refuse to give it, then Allah is aware of what you do.

    Surat An-Nisa 4:135

    And Allah said:

    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ

    O you who believe, fear Allah and be with those who are truthful.

    Surat At-Tawba 9:119

    The Prophet told us that truthfulness leads to Paradise and falsehood leads to Hellfire. If a Muslim continues to lie and cheat, then Allah will record him as a liar and punish him on the Day of Judgment.

    Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

    إِنَّ الصِّدْقَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْبِرِّ وَإِنَّ الْبِرَّ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَصْدُقُ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ صِدِّيقًا وَإِنَّ الْكَذِبَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْفُجُورِ وَإِنَّ الْفُجُورَ يَهْدِي إِلَى النَّارِ وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَكْذِبُ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ كَذَّابًا

    Verily, truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise. A man may speak the truth until he is recorded with Allah as truthful. Verily, lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to the Hellfire. A man may tell lies until he is recorded with Allah as a liar.

    Source: Sahih Muslim 2607, Grade: Sahih

    In fact, lying and false testimony were among the most hated behaviors to the Prophet. If he heard someone telling a lie, he would not be satisfied until he knew that person had repented.

    Aisha reported:

    مَا كَانَ خُلُقٌ أَبْغَضَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْ الْكَذِبِ وَلَقَدْ كَانَ الرَّجُلُ يُحَدِّثُ عِنْدَ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِالْكِذْبَةِ فَمَا يَزَالُ فِي نَفْسِهِ حَتَّى يَعْلَمَ أَنَّهُ قَدْ أَحْدَثَ مِنْهَا تَوْبَةً

    There was no behavior more hateful to the Messenger of Allah than dishonesty. A man would lie when narrating something in the presence of the Prophet and he would not be satisfied until he knew that he had repented.

    Source: Sunan At-Tirmidhi 1973, Grade: Hasan

    As for the Prophet’s statement, “War is deceit,” he said this in the context of a battle in which he intended to misdirect enemy troops.

    Abdur Rahman ibn Ka’b reported:

    كَانَ إِذَا أَرَادَ غَزْوَةً وَرَّى غَيْرَهَا وَكَانَ يَقُولُ الْحَرْبُ خَدْعَةٌ

    When the Prophet intended to go on an expedition, he would pretend to go somewhere else and he would say, “War is deception.”

    Source: Sunan Abu Dawud 2637, Grade: Sahih

    This is not lying for political reasons, but rather for security reasons. It is employing the same classical military tactics used by armies for centuries.

    Dr. Joseph Caddell, professor of military history at North Carolina State University, acknowledges that warfare has always involved tactics of deception. Dr. Caddell writes:

    Deception in warfare is probably as old as armed conflict itself. The logic of confusing an adversary is obvious, and the rewards can be realized very quickly.

    Source: Caddell, Joseph, “Deception 101: Primer on Deception.”

    However, this deception is only allowed in Islam during a declared state of war. It is a major sin for a Muslim to act treacherously or deceptively regarding covenants, peace treaties, promises, and agreements.

    Ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

    إِذَا جَمَعَ اللَّهُ الأَوَّلِينَ وَالآخِرِينَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يُرْفَعُ لِكُلِّ غَادِرٍ لِوَاءٌ فَقِيلَ هَذِهِ غَدْرَةُ فُلاَنِ بْنِ فُلاَنٍ

    When Allah gathers together the earlier and later generations on the Day of Resurrection, He will raise a banner for every treacherous person and it will be announced that this is the treachery of so-and-so the son of so-and-so.

    Source: Sahih Muslim 1735, Grade: Sahih

    This applies to non-Muslims, as the Prophet informed us that he would testify on the Day of Judgment on behalf of any peaceful non-Muslim against the Muslim who oppressed them.

    Sufwan ibn Saleem reported: A number of the companions said the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

    أَلَا مَنْ ظَلَمَ مُعَاهِدًا أَوْ انْتَقَصَهُ أَوْ كَلَّفَهُ فَوْقَ طَاقَتِهِ أَوْ أَخَذَ مِنْهُ شَيْئًا بِغَيْرِ طِيبِ نَفْسٍ فَأَنَا حَجِيجُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ

    If anyone wrongs a person protected by a covenant, violates his rights, burdens him with more work than he is able to do, or takes something from him without his consent, then I will plead for him on the Day of Resurrection.

    Source: Sunan Abu Dawud 3052, Grade: Sahih

    This even applies when treachery would result in a military advantage for the Muslims. The companions of the Prophet strictly avoided treachery and dishonesty even at the expense of military or political gains.

    Sulaym ibn Amir reported: There was a peace treaty between Muawiyah and the Byzantines. He was marching towards their country and when the covenant came to an end, he would attack them. A man came on a horse, saying, “Allah is Most Great! Allah is Most Great! Let there be faithfulness and not treachery!” When they looked they found that he was Amr ibn Abasah. Muawiyah sent for him and questioned him about that. He said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, say:

    مَنْ كَانَ بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ قَوْمٍ عَهْدٌ فَلَا يَحُلَّنَّ عَهْدًا وَلَا يَشُدَّنَّهُ حَتَّى يَمْضِيَ أَمَدُهُ أَوْ يَنْبِذَ إِلَيْهِمْ عَلَى سَوَاءٍ

    When one has a covenant with people he must not strengthen or loosen it until its term comes to an end or he brings it to an end in agreement with them.

    Source: Sunan At-Tirmidhi 1580, Grade: Sahih

    In this example, the Prophet’s companions prevented the Caliph Mu’awiyah from marching his army toward the Romans in an attempt to surprise attack them when the peace treaty expired. Marching to war was considered an act of war that was initiated before the expiration of the treaty, so the companions protested despite the benefit they would have gained against a formidable and hostile enemy empire. Hence, Mu’awiyah returned with his armies and did not commence with his surprise attack.

    As we can see, Muslims are only allowed to lie if it is necessary to protect themselves from persecution. The general rule is that a Muslim must always speak the truth even if it goes against himself, his family, or his community. Moreover, the permission for deception during a state of war is universally consistent with military tactics used by armies since antiquity unto the present, but deception in violation of peace treaties, covenants, and agreements is strictly forbidden in every circumstance.

    Success comes from Allah, and Allah knows best.



  5. I had forced myself into patiently reading and make sense of this umpteenth rebuttal on Islam and all Muslims, until i found this: Muhammad…child-raping warlord who spread his beliefs at the point of the sword…it is such reckless, biased remarks that kill otherwise good debates. If you can’t avoid such language, rest assured you will only be preaching to your fellow brethren. But to us who have had the chance to live and understand both sides of the religious divide, no chance. Does it make any sense to you that: taking home women as war booty was a norm by that time BUT the same Muhammad you label child-raping warlord refrained his warriors from taking home PREGNANT WOMEN as war booty????
