Sharia on Saturday--Taqiyya and Kitman and Liars

Taqiyya, the new buzz word. Who is lying to you?
Lately I’ve been seeing bloggers, blog radio and a whole host of others who now want to learn Arabic, too bad they’re learning it from terrorists.

Non Muslims have been told by Sharia terrorists that the Quran sanctions lying about anything, for any reason, so long as it further Islam, themselves, or an agenda by way of taqiyya.
Is this true or is it taqiyya?

How do Muslims scholars define taqiyya?
Ayatollah Sistani describes the concept of taqiyya as follows: Taqiyya is done for reasons of safety. As a minority living under the political dominance of Sunni Muslims, Shia often protect themselves.
Maybe they should pay Jizya…ha

The following can be found at Faith Freedom, Jihad Watch and many other websites.  All have the same 11 verses from the Quran to prove that all Muslims are allowed to lie for any reason, to anyone at anytime.  Everyone assumes that terrorists never lie so they’re never challenged. I’m challenging them.

Before you start reading you need to know a few of the terms.

A ‘Unbeliever’ is one who does not believe in one god. In the Quran they were known as pagans, idol worshippers and those who didn’t follow scriptures.
A ‘believer’ is one who believes in one god.
Anything in bold print is my comments.

From a well known website;

Taqiyya - Saying something that isn't true.

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."
Remember that!

Question: Are Muslims permitted to lie?

There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.
Qur'an (
16:106) - Establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
I found that to be kitman as they didn’t quote the entire verse, so here it is….

16:106 Whoso disbelieveth in Allah after his belief, save him who is forced thereto and whose heart is still content with Faith but whoso findeth ease in disbelief: On them is wrath from Allah. Theirs will be an awful doom
This verse says that if one is forced to not believe in one God then there is no sin. It also says that if you say you no longer believe in God because it’s easier, your reward is an awful doom.
The Religion of Peace said at the start; 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
So I ask, why is ok for them to do this?  They continue...

Qur'an (
3:28) - This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to "guard themselves."
Yet this verse has nothing to do with lying. Here it is…

3:28 Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah. except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you To remember Himself; for the final goal is to Allah
Pagans and those who didn’t follow scriptures were considered ‘Unbelievers’. And the next verse they quoted shows that it was for Muhammad…

3:29 Say, O Muhammad: Whether ye hide that which is in your breasts or reveal it, Allah knoweth it. He knoweth that which is in the heavens and that which is in the earth, and Allah is Able to do all things
The words, ‘O Muhammad’ should be your first clue that this was for him.  This verse does not allow lying.
At the time the Quran was written, the deserts of Arabia were filled with pagans and idol worshippers. These were as Allah called them, the worst of the worst (9;97). They would burn or bury their female babies, kill, torture and rape for fun, and of course women and orphans were fair game. These were the tribal gangs of the desert, and they all wanted to kill Muhammad. They did not want to give up their many gods or change their behavior. You’ve read the Hadith. Is it any wonder that a God would want them to have a better message?

This was next on the website….

Qur'an (
9:3) - "...Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters..." The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture. They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.
What does this verse have to do with lying? And what does the next verse say?

9:4 Excepting those of the idolaters with whom ye have a treaty, and who have since abated nothing of your right nor have supported anyone against you. As for these, fulfill their treaty to them till their term. Lo! Allah loveth those who keep their duty
Oh, so keep your word.
what else do they have....
Qur'an (40:28) - A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must "hide his faith" among those who are not believers.
Hmm...more kitman. Why use just part of the verse? Here is the full verse…

40:28 And a believing man of Pharaoh's family, who hid his faith, said: Would ye kill a man because he saith: My Lord is Allah, and hath brought you clear proofs from your Lord? If he is lying, then his lie is upon him; and if he is truthful then some of that wherewith he threateneth you will strike you. Lo! Allah guideth not one who is a prodigal, a liar
Pharaoh?  The dead one?  Seriously, who’s lying here?
What else do they have to prove that all Muslims are allowed to taqiyya…

Qur'an (
2:225) - "Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts"
This doesn’t say Muslims are allowed to lie. What’s the next verse?

2:226 For those who take an oath for abstention from their wives, a waiting for four months is ordained; if then they return, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful
Qur'an (66:2) - "Allah has already ordained for you, the dissolution of your oaths"
That sounds bad. I wonder what it’s about…
66:1 O Prophet! Why bannest thou that which Allah hath made lawful for thee, seeking to please thy wives? And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful
His wives?  Really?  Next….

Qur'an (
3:54) - "And the disbelievers schemed, and Allah schemed against them: and Allah is the best of schemers."
The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit. If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same.
We better read the verse that comes right after
2:54 so we can trap the terrorists as they practice their taqiyya on you!

3:55 And remember when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me, and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will (all) return, and I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ.
Well, holy Jesus.
That sure doesn’t prove taqiyya

They conclude with these two verses….

8:30 And when those who disbelieve plot against thee O Muhammad to wound thee fatally, or to kill thee or to drive thee forth; they plot, but Allah also plotteth; and Allah is the best of plotters.
Muhammad?  And he's dead.
Ok, they have one more chance to prove their taqiyya.
10;21 This better be good….

10:21 When We make mankind taste of some mercy after adversity hath touched them, behold! they take to plotting against Our Signs! Say: "Swifter to plan is Allah." Verily, Our messengers record all the plots that ye make!
Hmm…..fail.  There are over 6,000 verses in the Quran and they couldn't find one verse that tells them to lie.
And this is what they end with…

Taken collectively these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be "compelled" to deceive others for a greater purpose.
Do you find that to be a true statement?

Most of these websites and blogs make money by scaring you. The ‘donate’ button should be your first clue.  According to the Quran, Muslims are not allowed to lie—taqiyya or kitman.

6:150 Say: "Bring forward your witnesses to prove that Allah did forbid so and so." If they bring such witnesses, be not thou amongst them: Nor follow thou the vain desires of such as treat our signs as falsehoods, and such as believe not in the Hereafter: for they hold others as equal with their Guardian-Lord.
16:116 And speak not, concerning that which your own tongues qualify (as clean or unclean), the falsehood: "This is lawful, and this is forbidden," so that ye invent a lie against Allah. Lo! those who invent a lie against Allah will not succeed

16:117 In such falsehood is but a paltry profit; but they will have a most grievous Penalty

29:13 They will bear their own burdens, and (other) burdens along with their own, and on the Day of Judgment they will be called to account for their falsehoods

I understand that you are being hit by both sides. The Sharia terrorists who want to scare you and the fear bloggers want to make money off of your fear- then scare you again tomorrow.
Instead of believing what either one tells you, look it up yourself. And if you already believe the Sharia thugs are liars, why the hell are you repeating what they say?

17:60 And it was a warning when We told thee: Lo! Thy Lord encompasses mankind, and We appointed the vision which We showed thee as an ordeal for mankind, and the Accursed Tree in the Quran—The Az Zaqqum. We warn them, but it increased them in naught save gross impiety

I tell the truth. A lot of people don't want to know the truth. That alone can make me an ordeal.

Any questions?
