Helping Pakistan change their Biblical Blasphemy laws


http://d1bghp9m77ju8l.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Blasphemy-Death-Penalty-890x395_c.jpg
If you want a blasphemy law, convert to a religion that has one

 Dear Sir

The definition of blasphemy or ‘sab-o-shitam’ is unclear and the severe penalties provided by the legislation do not find any reference in the Qur'an or Hadith. In the Quran there is no ayat that justifies saza on tauheen e risalat, not to say that it is condoned and pardoned.

"...But they uttered blasphemy ... if they repent, it will be best for them, but if they turn back, Allah will punish them...." [Holy Qur'an 9:74]

Blasphemy is to be judged and punished by Allah (S.W.T) and not by us.

In fiqh, all muslim scholars have different views, to think that all say the same is incorrect. All the sources for legislating blasphemy laws in fiqh are not derived from Quran or hadith BUT from biblical laws, which stand redundant (as claimed) after Qur'an.

Following are the sources of biblical laws of blasphemy

And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying ... he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him. Leviticus 24:13-16

Because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die ... And the LORD struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick ... And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. 2 Samuel 12:14-18

All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men ... whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Matthew 12:31-32

But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness Mark 3:29

And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Luke 12:10

Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. 1 Timothy 6:1

Teach the young women to be ... obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:4-5

I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Revelation 2:9

I stood ... saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. Revelation 13:1

That is a very well written article. It clearly shows that laws and punishment for blasphemy are from biblical law. Those laws are not only crystal clear, they are mentioned over a dozen times. You have to know Jewish history to know why they were needed, and used. You can’t just steal Jewish law and claim it as Quran law. Jewish law involved a bloodline. Muslims have no claim to a Jewish bloodline. Instead, the Quran is a book of New Rules, which is why it says this;

Any message which, We annul or consign to oblivion We replace with a better or a similar one. Dost thou not know that God has the power to will anything? 2:106
Is this a lie?

Some believe the Qur'an does have laws for blasphemy, such as 5:33
But what does that verse say?

The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; 5:33
So who was the messenger/prophet that is written here? Go back 10 verses and see.

And remember when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Remember Allah's favor unto you, how He placed among you Prophets, and He made you Kings, and gave you that (which) He gave not to any other of His creatures.  5:20
Moses! He brought Jewish Laws! And the story continues…..in order.

O my people! Go into the holy land which Allah hath ordained for you. Turn not in flight, for surely ye turn back as losers: 5:21
They said: O Moses! Lo! a giant people dwell therein, and lo! we go not in till they go forth from thence. When they go forth, then we will enter not till then. 5:22
Then outspake two of those who feared their Lord, men unto whom Allah had been gracious: Enter in upon them by the gate, for if ye enter by it, lo! ye will be victorious. So put your trust in Allah if ye are indeed believers. 5:23
They said: O Moses! We will never enter the land while they are in it. So go thou and thy Lord and fight! We will sit here. 5:24
He said: My Lord! I have control of none but myself and my brother, so distinguish between us and the wrongdoing folk. 5:25
Their Lord said: For this the land will surely be forbidden them for forty years that they will. wander in the earth, bewildered. So grieve not over the wrongdoing folk. 5:26
Then the story goes back in time to a shorter story of the sons of Adam.
But recite unto them with truth the tale of the two sons of Adam, how they offered each a sacrifice, and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not accepted from the other. The one said: I will surely kill thee. The other answered: Allah accepteth only from those who ward off evil. 5:27
Even if thou stretch out thy hand against me to kill me, I shall not stretch out my hand against thee to kill thee, lo! I fear Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. 5:28
Lo! I would rather thou shouldst bear the punishment of the sin against me and thine own sin and become one of the owners of the Fire. That is the reward of evil doers. 5:29
But the other's mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers. 5:30
Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother's naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother's naked corpse? And he became repentant. 5:31
And then it goes back to Moses and the Jews.
For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if be had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs of Allah's sovereignty , but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth. 5:32
The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger (Just a side note here, not ALL the messengers were Muhammad) and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; 5:33

Even if you make war with God and a messenger/prophet, it still does not call for murder, there are choices. Only the barbaric would call for the barbaric rewards.


Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. 5:34

O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah, and seek the way of approach unto Him, and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed. 5:35
Which makes my point. Violence is not the answer.

As to those who reject Faith, if they had everything on earth, and twice repeated, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Judgment, it would never be accepted of them, theirs would be a grievous penalty. 5:36
Let God do God.

They will wish to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it. Theirs will be a lasting doom. 5:37
As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise. 5:38
I end with this verse as this is not found in biblical law.

What is the punishment for theft in biblical law?

Exodus 22:1 - If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
Nothing about getting a hand or foot chopped off.


Exodus 21:16 - And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
But he could be killed for stealing a man and selling that man.

Exodus 21:24 - Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
If you gouge out an eye, your eye will be gouged out. If you damage or cut of his foot or hand, yours will be cut off. But this is not for theft.
In truth, this particular law was stolen from Hammurabi who was a pagan. Amusing, right?


Exodus 22:3-4 - If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
So under biblical law.
In this law, the theif has to pay back what he has stolen and if he can’t, then he can be sold as a slave.


Verse 33:57-61 is most commonly used in Islamic history to justify and punish blasphemers.

Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger - Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment. 33:57
But no death

And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly, bear (on themselves) a calumny and a glaring sin.  33:58
Still no death

O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons when abroad: that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful. 33:59
I don’t know why this verse is included as it has nothing to do with blasphemy, but still no death.

Truly, if the Hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and those who stir up sedition in the City, desist not, We shall certainly stir thee up against them: Then will they not be able to stay in it as thy neighbours for any length of time: 33:60

This is about the hypocrites, those who say they follow the Quran but they do not.


They shall have a curse on them: whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy. 33:61

And they will say: “O our Sustainer! Behold, we paid heed unto our leaders and our great men, and it is they who have led us astray from the right path! 33:67

Because the Quran does not explicitly mention any worldly punishment for blasphemy. Islamic god guys  of the sunni and shia sect decided it would be ok to treat Muslims like Christians and ancient Jews. The only real surprise is why Muslim let them get away with it

Both the Sunni and Shia sects declared different punishments for the biblical crime of blasphemy, which is also not a surprise as the Quran says over and over to not break into sects, but they did, so why not make other changes?? Why not make up your own religion?

The Quran says many times, in many ways, that it is complete. Only the hypocrites and those who practice sedition, mischief and corruption say it is not complete.

And they will say: “O our Sustainer! Behold, we paid heed unto our leaders and our great men, and it is they who have led us astray from the right path! 33:67

Here is what those leaders, and great men that you follow, made up.


The Hanafi  views blasphemy as synonymous with apostasy, and therefore, accepts the repentance of apostates. Those who refuse to repent, their punishment is death if the blasphemer is a Muslim man, and if the blasphemer is a woman, she must be imprisoned with coercion (beating) till she repents and returns to Islam. If a non-Muslim commits blasphemy, his punishment must be a tazir (discretionary, can be death, arrest, caning, etc.)
I flat out call this shirk. They are not gods, just brutal males.

Maliki views blasphemy as an offense distinct from, and more severe than apostasy. Death is mandatory in cases of blasphemy for Muslim men, and repentance is not accepted. For women, death is not the punishment suggested, but she is arrested and punished till she repents and returns to Islam or dies in custody. A non-Muslim who commits blasphemy against Islam must be punished; however, the blasphemer can escape punishment by converting and becoming a devout Muslim.
What religion is this?

Hanbali – view blasphemy as an offense distinct from, and more severe than apostasy. Death is mandatory in cases of blasphemy, for both Muslim men and women, and repentance is not accepted.
Why would they corrupt their religion like this?

Shafi’i – recognizes blasphemy as a separate offense from apostasy, but accepts the repentance of blasphemers. If the blasphemer does not repent, the punishment is death.
This is the mischief the Quran warns of

Ja'fari (Shia) views blasphemy against Islam, the Prophet, or any of the Imams, to be punishable with death, if the blasphemer is a Muslim. In case the blasphemer is a non-Muslim, he is given a chance to convert to Islam, or else killed.
For, indeed, many facets have We given in this Qur'an to every kind of lesson designed for the benefit of mankind! However, most men are unwilling to accept anything but blasphemy 17:89

It forces you to ask, if they prefer biblical law, then what was the point of the Quran?

Muhammad was not a stud

Yesterday, I was on facebook and saw a debate page post on my news feed.

A Christian and a Muslim were arguing about Muhammad having sex with a 9 year old. 

 

Both insisted it happened. 

So I wrote;
But there is a verse in the quran that directly asks Muhammad...'dude, we gave you all these wives, why aren't you getting it in?'


Then I hit the 'leave group' button cos I knew what would happen next, I'd get the boot.

but the truth is.....
He never got it in.....not in any of the half a million hadith/stories/sunnah

How closely do you really want to follow/imitate a prophet?

 

Some of you will know the aya I speak of, for those of you who do not, and want to challenge me, come to my facebook page...and drop the bad hadith.

 

Still, the better entertainment...

Twas the night before Christmas and Muhammad was confused.


Should Muslims have fun holidays like the Christians and Jews?
8 days of Hanukkah or a fat Jinn in a red suit, who used reindeers not camels to carry his loot?

 

And what kind of presents would Muhammad think best?
Barbies in burkas and suicide vests?
It had to be something the Infidels would envy
Teddy bears named Muhammad or something trendy.

 

But that’s too much work for a man who had fits
With angels who’d scare him out of his wits.
It would have to be simple and easy to do
And try not to get sick with the kafur swine flu

 

So he laid on his bed, the left side of course,
Couldn’t lay on his back considering the source
of Sharia and Hadith and all those rules
can’t have Infidels thinking we’re fools.

 

As he laid on his left side, trying hard not to sleep,
When in crept a dog without making a peep.
He said to Muhammad, such an idea I have
I’d tell you now- but we’re forbidden to laugh

 

Muhammad was startled by the sight of the dog
They’re considered impure if you read all the blogs
But with the crescent moon setting he had to decide
Listen to the dog or forget the yuletide.

 

So the dog said to Muhammad this has to be done right
Or the Sunni and Shia will start a new fight
Like the winged donkey/horse that flew to the sky
That screwed up the prayers, is it 3 or is it 5?

 

But Muhammad disagreed; the dog be can’t be right
I’ve given them holidays for at least a few nights
Like Ramadan to starve them from sun up to sun down
A billion hungry Muslims with their heads to the ground.

 

A month of no sex, food, or water from dawn until dusk
And then the celebration of Eid, where they can pig out and lust
They can eat lots of dates and wear all their best clothes
And visit a gravesite … before they’re blown up by their foes.

 

They can ask forgiveness and even pray for more wives
All the fatwas on sex, haven’t I given them good lives?
Plus, the angel Gabe descends with white clothes
For Muhammad’s grandsons, all dead--but who knows

 

We eat lots of food on all 3 days
And pay zakat to the poor but not if they’re gay
I have already given them this holiday you see,
But only when the moon is sighted by three

 

And it’s never the same time, so they have to remember
like last year it fell on the 21 of September
It goes backwards not forwards it’s the moon you must trust.
And the moon said this year, it shall be the 11th of August

 

The dog said to Muhammad, 30 days of fasting, 3 days to over eat?
If that’s the best you can do, then they’ve got you beat.
The Infidels give presents, charity and good cheer
And it’s always the same month year after year

 

But, said Muhammad, for 1400 years it’s been a tradition
To make fun of the holidays of the Jews and the Christian.
We can’t change it now, it’s gone on far too long
Plus Sharia forbids us from singing a song

 

But what of the treaty of Hudaibiyya, the dog argued with skill
Where you denied you were a prophet so you wouldn’t be killed
If you could fake it then you could fake it now
Say Happy Holidays to Infidels and don’t have a cow

 

Tell Muslims to be tolerant or go back where they’re from
Or they’ll be eating the fruit of the Az Zaqqum
To celebrate life’s mysteries should be each human’s right
It shouldn’t be a reason for Muslims to hate or to fight.

 

Forget it said Muhammad; they’ve ignored much that I’ve said.
They follow their scholars and the Hadith they’ve read.
They made up this religion long after I was dead.
Good luck to you all, I’m going back to bed.

 

And that’s a Muslim winter holiday. And to all a good night
And of course we all know….the dog was right.

 

You received a great book filled with New Rules, but you prefer the hadith, which makes you fools. No sunni or shia in the Quran, No compulsion in religion, it goes on and on. Nothing that tells women to cover their hair, it's not a genital, it's just hair. So don't get mad at me for making fun of you, the hadith and fatwas did that to you.

Call them by name....call them Sunni


When you use the word islamists, most Muslims do not believe you are talking about them. They think you’re talking about other Muslims.
If they are Shia, they think you are talking about the Sunni. If they are Sunni, they think you are talking about the Shia.
Sufi know you are not talking about them.

Titles matter when you’re dealing with sects. Remember reading about the war in Ireland, where 2 sects were blowing each other up? They weren’t called Christians, they were labeled by their sects. Catholic and Protestant. USA President Grant did not say he would invade the Christian state of Utah, he called out the polygamy sect by name, Mormons.
 
Using the word islamists would be like calling all Christians Mormons or Catholics.
Jehovah Witness and the Amish would know you weren’t talking about them.

If every terror attack on the west was committed by Sunni, why use the word Muslim? Use the word Sunni.
All Muslims know what a Sunni is.
 
You never hear of Shia joining Sunni to blow themselves to bits. Never hear of Sufi joining with Sunni to blow up a café in France. So why group them together with the word islamists? Why not call it what it is, Sunni terrorism. They seem to have the largest number of serial killers, almost a never ending line.

Shia can’t stop Sunni suicide serial killers. Neither can Sufi. But shed the light on the right sect, Sunni sect, and you might get somewhere.

And if they belong to a sect, they are not Islamic.
The word Islam is Arabic for one who believes/submits to one God. And like the Jews, they are not to join any partners with God.
 
The religion of Sunni depend on the writings of a man called Bukhari, who never met Muhammad. On the advice of a fortuneteller, he wrote stories. He didn’t care if they were reliable or not, he just kept writing stories.

As Bukhari (buky) never married, it is my tasfir that he was gay, and left home to avoid the pressure of an arranged marriage. I don’t think he meant to be the new prophet, but that’s what he became. His writings of stories are far more well known than anything in the Quran.
 
Those who have read the Quran know it warns against following stories/hadith. If they are following the prophet buky and his stories, how can they be called Islamic? How can they be called Muslim? They are submitting to a dead gay guy.
 
I’ve heard all the excuses as to why Muslims follow buky, but they either lie or they don’t know what the Quran says.

One excuse that I hear often is; but without a story/hadith, how do we know how to pray? So I ask…what is prayer? Prayer is thanking God. And if the Quran says that even the birds know how to say thank you to God, why do you need instruction to say thank you? Are you not as smart as a bird?
 
That’s what prayer is, to thank God for what you have, and to pray for the strength to go through an ordeal. How hard is that?

The Quran doesn’t say anything about the odd body positions that you see. The Quran is very cool on prayer. You can pray sitting, standing, prostrating or lying down. And there are only 3 prayers, you can do a search on my blog to learn more about that.
 
The next excuse for saying the Quran is not complete is when it comes to charity/zakat. How much do you pay? Quran is clear, pay what you can because- God will know if you’re being cheap. Don’t be cheap.

The next excuse comes from the Quran where it says Muhammad is a perfect example. That’s because he followed what Gabriel told him, he didn’t follow stories/hadith.
 
So why call them islamists? Why call them submitters/believers of one God when even they say the stories/Hadith is equally important?
 
Not one Sunni will tell you that the Quran is complete…even though the Quran says it is complete, over and over, and over. The Quran is the most redundant book I’ve ever read. If it’s important it is repeated. But a Sunni will deny that, they have to have a story/Hadith. Why?
Because…what the Quran took away, the stories/Hadith gave back.

Islam is one religion, with one book of New Rules.

The prophet buky is not mentioned in the Quran, Aiesha isn’t mentioned, Fatima isn’t mentioned, the words Sunni or Shia are not mentioned in the Quran. Do you know why? Because they were not important. You know what is important? Not joining partners with God. That’s called shirk. So don’t be a shirk.

Call them Sunni. A sect that follows stories/Hadith. When the Quran says to bring a sura like it, will they bring a story/Hadith…probably a silly story of a goat eating an ayat, or that Muhammad was a suicidal nut case. They end up in the hellfire.

 I’ve read all the stories/Hadith, over  half a million stories/Hadith. Didn’t find even one that has the wisdom, tolerance, laws or behavior that matches the Quran, not one.


Isis is Sunni, Alqaeda is Sunni. Every terror attack in the west has been committed by Sunni. They all follow the stories/Hadith.
They don’t follow the Quran, so don’t call them Muslim, do not call them Islamic.
Call them by the name of their illegal sect, call them Sunni.
