Suicide Bombers and the Myth of “72 Virgins”

One of the biggest Islamophobia propaganda myths is the invention of 72 virgins as a Muslim reward for suicide. This has been repeated to the Western world so often that most people have accepted it as fact. The media wants us to believe that there cannot be anything wrong about Israelis — who must be seen as eternal victims — to cause anyone to commit suicide as a means of striking back at them. It is a sick and despicable mind that feels it has a right to attack, steal, murder and cause harm to others but if the others dare fight back they are wrong and therefore terrorists.

The Young Marriage of Aishah and the Fallacy of Presentism

6/8/11 -

One of the most commonly-used arguments against Islam by those who are non-Muslims encompasses the relationship between the Prophet Muhammad and his young bride, Aishah. Most non-Muslim polemicists are quick to use this argument in an attempt to discredit the character of Muhammad, thus discrediting the legitimacy of his message, Islam. The most common statements made by the non-Muslim, with regards to this subject, is that the Prophet was a pedophile, since he married and subsequently consummated the marriage with Aishah while she was a very young girl.

Christian missionaries in Malaysia are using verses of the Noble Qur’an about Jesus in an effort to preach Christianity to Muslims in this South-East Asian country. “You aren’t criticizing Muhammad or any other prophets,” David Garrison, a Christian missionary, told The New York Times on Saturday, March 13.

The 9/11 Predicament and Being Muslim Today

6/19/10 -

The ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the planned Muslim cultural center near ground zero, the planned burning the Koran day, the Eid al-Fitr celebration ending the fasting month of Ramadan this year, all have put many Muslims in America and around the world in a predicament and made them redefine their identity. The 9/11 tragedy has influenced many people from various walks of life. A Christian Arab may be mistaken for a Muslim. A Sikh was attacked for wearing his turban. An Indonesian visiting or returning to the United States whose name is common but Arabic may experience extra scrutiny by the department of Homeland Security.

The Islamic version of Jesus the son of Mary (peace be upon him) is the true and correct Jesus, as the whole world should believe. The Jews regard Jesus as a false prophet, Christians over-praise him as the “Son of God”, yet the Islamic version of Jesus(P) lies between these two extremes and remains absolutely true to the nature of Jesus, upon whom be peace. Muslims believe that Jesus(P) was a Prophet and Messenger of God, the Christ, but he was not God-incarnate.
