Skip to comments.Virginia: Muslim State Senate Candidate Cries 'Islamophobia' When He’s Quoted
Posted on 09/06/2019 7:55:45 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Qasim Rashid, an Ahmadi Muslim who is running as a Democrat for the Virginia State Senate, is enraged at the dirty tricks of his opponent, Richard Stuart. My Republican opponent, fumed Rashid in a video last week, is launching anti-Muslim, Islamophobic attacks against me questioning my loyalty to the United States and questioning my ties with terrorism, I mean just the most ridiculous, meritless claims that are imaginable. What did Stuart do to warrant these charges? Why, the racist, bigoted Islamophobe had the temerity to quote Rashids own words.
Rashid, according to WMAL, posted a screenshot on Twitter of one of the ads paid for by incumbent Richard Stuarts re-election campaign. It shows a picture of Rashid with a caption QASIM RASHID DOESNT BELIEVE ISLAMIC TERRORISM EXISTS.
Straight out of the Richard Nixon playbook, right? With an unsavory dash of contemporary Islamophobia. How low can Stuart go? He is, as far as Qasim Rashid is concerned, a prime example of the anti-Muslim hysteria that has overtaken all too many people in Donald Trumps America.
But theres just one catch: Stuarts claim that Qasim Rashid doesnt believe Islamic terrorism exists is based on the words of none other than the notorious Islamophobe Qasim Rashid. In his own defense, Stuart was able to point to a 2018 tweet in which Rashid declared: No such thing as Islamic terrorism. Terrorism has no religion.
Stuarts campaign manager, Cooper Mohr, accordingly responded to Rashid by compounding his candidates dastardliness, and actually had the temerity to claim the defense of the truth: These ads are based on actual tweets from Rashid and other public statements. We stand by all of our ads and will continue running them.

SOURCE----Lawyer for Terrorists, Islamist Candidate
Khurrum Wahid Comes in Third at Florida Elections
Frontpage Mag ^ | 06/24/2019 | Joe Kauffman / FR Posted by SeekAndFind
Khurrum Basir Wahid, a South Florida attorney, (and friend) has made a name for himself by representing high-profile terrorists, including the most violent of al-Qaeda operatives. And while Wahid has every right to act as legal counsel to such miscreants, when viewing the rest of his terror-related and disturbing activity, it would be a grave error not to view Wahid as a threat as well.
One of Wahids former clients is Hafiz Khan, a Miami imam who received a 25-year prison sentence, in August 2013, for his role in shipping $50 thousand to the Pakistani Taliban for the specific goal of murdering American troops overseas. Khan was not the only individual charged in the crime. His son, Izhar, spent 20 months in a Miami federal detention center for his alleged participation in the terror financing scheme.
As stated by the US Justice Department, Izhar is a Pakistani Taliban sympathizer who worked with [his father Hafiz] and others to collect and deliver money for the Pakistani Taliban Izhar provided and attempted to provide material support and resources knowing and intending that they be used in preparation for and in carrying out a conspiracy to murder, kidnap, and maim persons in a foreign country.
While using his law firm to actively raise money for Izhar and his father, Wahid went out of his way to label Izhar a rising star. Also, according to the Miami New Times, Wahid said of Izhar that he was a sweet kid who did his fathers bidding. In this same New Times piece, it is reported that Wahid, himself, was placed on the federal terrorist watch list, in 2011.
Besides his work as an attorney, Wahid is the National Co-Chairman of Emgage Action (formerly Emerge USA), an Islamist group he founded in 2006 that attempts to pass its extremist agenda off as political advocacy. The group is part of the South Florida Muslim Federation, a consortium of South Floridas radical Islamic organizations and terror-related mosques. Emgage tends to attract leaders of the Democratic Party, who see Emgage as an opportunity to pander for Muslim votes and close their eyes to the extreme nature of the group.
Under Wahids authority sits Ammar Ahmed, the South Florida Director of Emgage. In February 2010, following a debate he participated in at a school, Ahmed wrote on Facebook, I hate white people and joked that he should have threatened to blow up the school.
Prior to creating Emgage, Wahid served as a legal advisor for the national office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and a director of CAIRs Florida chapter. According to the US government, CAIR has both financial and foundational ties to Hamas. Various CAIR representatives have served prison time and/or have been deported from the US for terrorist-related activity. In November 2014, CAIR was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.
The mosque Wahid attends is the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF). Wahid is also the Registered Agent for IFSFs corporation. Up until recently, the Youth Group leader for IFSF was Abdur Rahman al-Ghani, an individual who says on his Facebook page that Jews are demonic and Islam will over-take the World. In June 2013, IFSF hosted a Ramadan Prep Youth Night featuring Izhar Khan, and in April 2014, IFSF hosted a talk by Mazen Mokhtar, a former administrator for the al-Qaeda recruitment site, qoqaz.net (Jihad in Chechnya), and who has called Hamas acts heroic and suicide bombings an effective method of attacking the enemy.
It is through Wahids engagement in politics, via his Emgage organization, that Wahid probably believed that he had a shot to win the vacant Commission seat. However, any voter looking into Wahids extremist and terror-tied background would surely have questions about Wahids true intentions in running for such an office in running for any office.
What is indeed concerning, though, is that just short of 1400 Coral Springs voters thought highly enough of Wahid to give him their votes, putting him squarely in third place. That was well behind the 2553 votes the winner, Sean Cerra, received, but it was 1400 votes nonetheless. Either those voters were ignorant of Wahids sordid history or they disturbingly chose to ignore it. Beyond Wahid and his fellow Islamists, any vote for him would be aiding and abetting extremist activity. A vote for Wahid was and is a vote for terror.
Beila Rabinowitz, Director of Militant Islam Monitor, contributed to this report.
REALITY CHECK: Terrorist organization "CAIR" in a Detroit News article, says that questions to Muslim candidates are off limits......
to question a Muslim is considered (and I quote) "Islamophobic."

FBI takes on Islamophobia: White nationalism seen as bigger threat than jihadism
Leo Hohmann | 1/26/18 | FR Posted by markomalley
Two Michigan residents attended a BRIDGES meeting hosted by the Detroit office of the FBI recently that left them stunned by the level of Islamist infiltration at the Bureau. BRIDGES is a quarterly FBI outreach program that stands for Building Respect in Diverse Groups to Enhance Sensitivity, whereby the FBI hosts workshops for law enforcement and various immigrant communities.
Theyve been held in Boston, Detroit, Houston and Minneapolis-St. Paul and some city police departments host similar meetings on their own, without the FBI in attendance. According to the FBI website, BRIDGES brings together members of diverse communities and state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies to discuss issues and concerns within their communities.
In southeastern Michigan, those diverse communities include an array of Islamic migrant enclaves, both Shia and Sunni, as well as Coptic, Chaldean and Assyrian Christians forced to flee their Middle Eastern homelands by the Islamic State and other jihadist groups. The outreaches can sometimes go to bizarre lengths to demonstrate the FBIs respect for Islam. In St. Paul, for example, the FBI boasted in its Oct. 7, 2014 edition of the Law Enforcement Bulletin that the local police department hosted its first halal cookout with the Somali Muslim community.
The Jan. 10 FBI BRIDGES meeting in Michigan serves as a fresh reminder of how the FBI has made a concerted effort to divert the eyes of law enforcement away from Muslim communities as potential breeding grounds for terror and refocus attention on Islamophobic American citizens. The meeting, held at the Troy Police and Fire Training Center in Oakland County, an affluent suburb of Detroit, was described as painful to watch by two guests who attended. Dick Manasseri, an activist with Secure Michigan and a resident of Oakland County, gained entry to the meeting by way of a guest invitation from the American Middle Eastern Christian Congress, a regular attendee. But he said he heard nothing about the plight of persecuted Middle Eastern Christians now living in Oakland County. Instead, almost the entire hour-and-a-half meeting was spent focusing on Islamic religious and cultural practices and trying to debunk any derogatory information police officers may have received about Islamic ideology.
The FBIs point person for this task was Bushra Alawie, a young female Muslim wearing a full head covering, or hijab. Alawie served in the Army National Guard and upon leaving the Guard in September 2016 the FBI hired her to be its community outreach specialist in Detroit. The mother of four spoke confidently and without any trace of an accent during her presentation on Islamic cultural education. I get that initial look like, is that really Bushra because of my visibly Muslim attire, she told Detroits WXYZ-TV in 2016. Immediately those rumors are dispelled and its business as usual.
Alawie admitted in the WXYZ-TV interview that her real mission at the FBI is not to ferret out tips and information useful in the apprehension of terrorists but rather it is to combat Islamophobia.
That just happens to be the same exact mission of the Muslim Brotherhood-offshoot Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has an entire division called the Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia. And while he did not attend the January meeting, CAIRs Michigan chapter head, Dawud Walid, has a standing invitation to the FBIs quarterly BRIDGES meetings in metro Detroit.
Also on the FBIs invite list is CAIRs former Michigan chapter leader, Muthanna Al-Hanooti, who was convicted in 2011 of conspiring to work for a foreign government, Saddam Husseins Iraq, and making false statements to the same FBI. Yes, that would be the same FBI which now courts him as a guest at its Detroit-area outreach meetings.
WATCH VIDEO AT WEB SITE : Meet Bushra Alawie, a Muslim woman working for the FBI
About that phrase Allahu Akbar, so frequently shouted during the commission of Islamic terrorist attacks, Alawie assured the police officers in attendance not to worry or give it a second thought. According to her, Allahu Akbar:
<><>Is said by Muslims 85 times a day
<><>Was said by Jews and Christians before Islam began
<><>Would be used to celebrate the birth of a child or in the prayer of a sick person
<><>Is perfectly normal and not particularly associated with violent jihad.
She explained that jihad means: An inner struggle for her to not eat cheesecake Higher jihad inner struggle Lower Jihad to defend ones property.
She mentioned that Jihad was even a name taken by Christian men on occasion and that there was an FBI employee of Palestinian descent whose name was Jihad. According to Alawie, if we Americans understand these subtleties, then we will be well on our way to wiping out Islamophobia. Where did the impetus for this FBI focus on Islamophobia come from?
It certainly did not originate in Oakland County, Michigan, or even Washington. Its international in scope. Combating Islamophobia has been a top priority, since at least 2005, of the United Nations and the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a 57-nation group of Muslim-majority nations that makes up the largest voting bloc at the U.N.
The OIC adopted its 10-year Strategic Action Plan to Overcome Islamophobia in 2005, calling for nations to pass new laws including deterrent punishments for those guilty of Islamophobia. This crime was described as any speech that counters the OICs statement that Islam is the religion of moderation and tolerance.
This 10-year plan served as the basis for the 2011 U.N. Human Rights Resolution 16/18, which encourages every nation in the world to adopt hate-speech laws making defamation of religion a crime. There is only one religion, however, that seeks to punish people for speech deemed offensive to its members Islam. Many nations in Western Europe, including the UK, Germany and Sweden obliged, as did Canada, and passed hate-speech laws geared toward punishing these vile Islamophobes.
It was also around this same time frame 2010 to 2012 that lesson plans in public schools across the United States started incorporating large sections on Islam, emphasizing it as a religion of peace and tolerance. Any teacher who resisted was an Islamophobe.
In 2013 the OIC opened an office in Brussels explicitly for the purpose of combating Islamophobia in Europe.In February 2017 U.N. Secretary General Antonio Gutteres cited Islamophobia as the fuel that has ignited the rise of global terrorism. This U.N. focus on Islamophobia came during the peak offensives of ISIS, al-Nusra and other jihadist groups conducting a genocide against Christian minorities in Iraq and Syria exposing the global bodys agenda as more concerned about speech deemed offensive to Muslims than beheadings, rapes and mass-murdering of Christians.
Philip Haney, a former Customs and Border Protection officer who became a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003 and a member of the Advanced Targeting Team before retiring in July 2015, said the FBI did not get to the point of rolling out Bushra Alawie overnight.
When Haney tried to blow the whistle on Homeland Security ineptitude, he found himself the target of repeated investigations and harassment. A critical data template he developed to catch terrorists before they strike was erased from the DHS computer system. He was an Islamophobe. Haney believes the term Islamophobia was created by the global Islamic movement to set up a watered-down version of the blasphemy laws that terrorize Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. Instead of a stern-looking mullah or sheikh enforcing the blasphemy laws under penalty of death, the Muslims in the West use people like Bushra Alawie, who deliver the same warning with a smile, under penalty of losing ones reputation and career.
She wouldnt have been given that platform under the old rules, Haney said. These concessions to Islam have been developing for a long time, and the fact that someone like her would be endorsed by the FBI and given that platform, it would never have happened without all those previous developments at the OIC, U.N., and the fervent work of Obama holdovers in the FBI.
Scrubbing FBI training manuals One of the more crucial developments came in 2011 the same year the U.N. adopted Resolution 16/18. Thats when more than 50 Muslim organizations, many with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, sent a letter to Obamas then-deputy national security adviser John Brennan demanding he remove from FBI training manuals all references to Islam deemed offensive to Muslims. They also requested that the FBI and DHS rid themselves of all biased experts people like Haney and immediately create an inter-agency task force to address the problem.
Brennan and then-FBI chief Robert Mueller fell over like a stack of dominos. They immediately scrubbed the training manuals and began purging federal agencies of patriots with expert knowledge of Islamist ideology. Instead of true terrorism experts, police would receive training from people like Bushra Alawie, the smooth-talking, hijab-wearing Muslim apologist with the contagious smile.
Since most local police chiefs get training from the FBI Academy, the same drivel that now passes for counter-terrorist instruction at the Bureau gets filtered down to police departments nationwide. But Trump is rectifying all of this right? Unfortunately, no. All of the Muslim infiltrations of the government remain in place. Hiring a woman like Alawie to present an unrealistic view of Islam is the new normal at the FBI.
Other highlights from the BRIDGES meeting: Troy Mayor Dane Slater welcomed the meeting attendees to the most diverse city in Michigan. Troy Police Chief Gary Mayer, along with four of his senior officers, welcomed their federal counterparts from the FBI and witnessed the guidance provided by the FBI regarding the normalcy of Allahu Akbar and the benevolent jihad.
Praise was offered for the Obama-appointed former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade who was fired by Trump. Examples offered of domestic terrorism repeatedly focused on white supremacist groups, who are seen as more dangerous than Islamic terrorism according to the teaching of the previous administration and the United Nations-endorsed Strong Cities Network.
The FBIs special agent in charge of Detroit said there remains no clear motive for the Las Vegas massacre. Mental health was injected as an explanation for violent activity per the Muslim Brotherhood playbook. Celebration of the long-standing civil rights partnership between the FBI and the Muslim community was marked with recognition awards. Everything was about welcoming, welcoming, welcoming, Manasseri said. It was terribly discouraging, including when they talked about domestic terrorism and they kept coming back to white supremacism and how do you protect us from white nationalism? Stunning.
To counter the false and incomplete training being given by the FBI, Manasseri has co-founded a project called Sharia Crime Stoppers in partnership with a retired police chief.
The Muslim Brotherhood-managed FBI and its pandering to Islam at 60-plus BRIDGES meetings since the 9/11 terrorist attacks provides ample evidence that Michigan is already living under Sharia, even while it contemplates the candidacy of Sharia-compliant and Muslim Brotherhood-groomed candidate Abdul El-Sayed for governor, Manasseri said. El-Sayed is running on the Democratic ticket in Michigans 2018 gubernatorial race.
ALL muslims are religiously obligated to support jihad.
Jihad is a central tenet of Islam.
As long as there are muslims in America, we will have jihad.
Mad Mo made it so.
"I heartily endorse Democrat Muslim Qasim Rashid for the Virginia State Senate.
I have contributed to his campaign and I urge Democrats to do the same."
"Nancy Pelosi assured me she is leaving no stone unturned to rally Virginia Democrats
to elect Democrat Muslim Qasim Rashid to the Virginia State Senate."
The Islamic "party of love and compassion" drops in on 911.
MINN SOMALI MUSLIMS STEAL $300 MILLION TAX DOLLARSThe Worst Scandal In Minnesota History?
Center of the American Experiment ^ | May 14, 2018 | John Hinderaker
FR Posted on 5/15/2018, 9:24:53 AM by 2ndDivisionVet
Fox 9 television uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa: This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms. Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.
Where does the money come from, and where is it going? It was coming from Hawalas, businesses used to courier money to countries that have no official banking system. Some immigrant communities rely on Hawalas to send funds to help impoverished relatives back home.
[Former Seattle police detective Glen] Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group.
But the real scandal is where the money came from in the first placewelfare fraud:As Kerns dug deeper, he found that some of the individuals who were sending out tens of thousands of dollars worth of remittance payments happened to be on government assistance in this country. How could they possibly come up with such big bucks to transfer back home? We had sources that told us, Its welfare fraud, its all about the daycare, said Kerns. *** Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.
Its a great way to make some money, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers falsely signed up low income Somali Muslim families that qualify for child care assistance funding.Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.
Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.Video from that same case shows a man handing out envelopes of what are believed to be kickback payments to parents who are in on the fraud. Evidently welfare fraud in various forms is widespread in Minnesotas Somali immigrant community. This is, I think, generally known, but the scale of fraud disclosed here is astonishing:
We believe that theres a scope of fraud out there that we really need to get our arms around and ensure that those dollars are going to kids that really need them, Acting Commissioner for the Department of Human Services Chuck Johnson said.
He told the Fox 9 Investigators his agency has 10 daycares currently under active investigation for fraud. Fox 9 has learned dozens more are considered suspicious. Search warrants obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators show each one of the suspect centers has received several million dollars in childcare assistance funds.
According to public records and government sources, most are owned by Somali immigrants. *** Sources in the Somali community told Fox 9 it is an open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money.
The fraud is so widespread they said, that people buy shares of daycare businesses to get a cut of the huge public subsidies that are pouring in. Government insiders believe this scam is costing the state at least a hundred million dollars a year, half of all child care subsidies.
A friend who saw this news story wrote: This has me more angry than Ive been since the 2011 tax increase on the rich aka, working families. I cant put into words how utterly incompetent you must be to not have a checks and balances in place for tax payer funded programs, the tax payer dollars that people like myself and millions others diligently pay quarterly, leaving our children in childcare to work and provide for our families, pay taxes, only to have this hard work fund bogus programs that somehow are funding the same terrorist activities meant to harm our country?!!! Unbelievable. The commissioner and employees responsible for overseeing this mess should pay, every single one of them they should be fired they didnt do their job.
Her outrage is appropriate, but perhaps misguided. I suspect that many of Minnesotas liberals think that our bureaucrats performed their jobs very well: they siphoned off hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to finance liberal constituenciesthe principal purpose of government, according to our lib friends.
So, how dumb are we? Honestly, I think it is impossible to plumb the depths of our stupidity. We need to totally revamp both our immigration policies and our welfare system to guard against these Somali migrant crooks.
The complete and utter contempt with which these degenerate Muslims hold Americans and America is astounding.

A phobia is an irrational or unfounded fear. It is neither unfounded nor irrational to fear a system that demands you be dominated, enslaved or killed if you decline to embrace it. So there is no such thing as Islamophobia.
Jihad was a way of life for the Pious Predecessors, and the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) was a master of the Mujahideen and a model for fortunate, inexperienced people.
When there was fierce fighting, they used to stand resolutely by the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) lest he be closest to the enemy.
The total number of military excursions which he (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) accompanied was twenty-seven. He himself fought in nine of these; namely Badr, Uhud, al-Muraysi`, The Trench, Qurayzah, Khaybar, The Triumph of Makkah, Hunayn and Ta'if. (This is according to those who consider that Makkah was conquered by force.)
He sent out a total of forty- seven attachments. It has also been said that he participated in the fight against Banu Nadir. This means that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) used to go out on military expeditions or send out an army at least every two months. The virtuous Companions continued upon the path of the Noble Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), for the Glorious Qur'an had brought up this generation with an education of Jihad. They had been bathed in Jihad and cleansed of engrossment in worldly matters, just as a wound is bathed in water.
The defeatists among the Muslims come out to defend Islam, and they want to disavow Islam of this so-called lie, so they deny that Islam was spread by the sword, and they say that jihad is not prescribed in Islam, except in the case of self-defence. There is no such thing in Islam as taking the initiative in fighting in their view. This goes against what the Muslim scholars have stated, let alone the fact that it goes against the Quraan and Sunnah.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said in Majmoo al-Fataawa, 28/263.
The purpose is that all religion should be for Allaah alone, and that the word of Allaah should be supreme. The word of Allaah is a comprehensive phrase that refers to His words that are contained in His Book. Hence Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
Indeed We have sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and the Balance (justice) that mankind may keep up justice
The purpose behind sending the Messengers and revealing the Books was so that mankind might keep up justice with regard to the rights of Allaah and the rights of His creation. Then Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
And We brought forth iron wherein is mighty power (in matters of war), as well as many benefits for mankind, that Allaah may test who it is that will help Him (His religion) and His Messengers in the unseen
So whoever deviates from the Book is to be brought back with iron, i.e. by force. Hence the soundness of the religion is based on the Quraan and the Sword. It was narrated that Jaabir ibn Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded us to strike with this, meaning the sword, whoever turns away from this, meaning the Quraan.
Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Faroosiyyah (p.18):
Allaah sent him meaning the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with the guiding Book and the conquering sword, ahead of the Hour, so that Allaah alone would be worshipped with no partner or associate, and his provision was placed beneath the shade of his sword and spear. Allaah has established the religion of Islam with proof and evidence, and with the sword and spear, both together and inseparable.
This is some of the evidence from the Quraan and Sunnah. The evidence clearly indicates that the sword is one of the most important means that led to the spread of Islam.
1 Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
For had it not been that Allaah checks one set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the Name of Allaah is mentioned much would surely, have been pulled down. Verily, Allaah will help those who help His (Cause). Truly, Allaah is All-Strong, All-Mighty
And if Allaah did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief. But Allaah is full of bounty to the Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists)
2 Allaah has commanded us to prepare the means of fighting against the kuffaar and frightening them. He says (interpretation of the meaning):
And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to threaten the enemy of Allaah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allaah does know
If Islam was only spread by peaceful means, what would the kuffaar have to be afraid of? Of mere words spoken on the tongue? In al-Saheehayn it is narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: I have been supported with fear as far as a months journey. Would the kuffaar be afraid of being told, become Muslim, but if you do not then you are free to believe and do whatever you want? or were they afraid of jihad and the imposition of the jizyah and being humiliated? That may make them enter Islam so that they may be spared this humiliation.
3 When the Messenger called people to Islam, his call was accompanied by the sword, and he commanded his leaders to do likewise, so that when the people saw the serious of the Muslims in calling people to their religion, that dispelled any confusion.
Al-Bukhaari (3009) and Muslim (2406) narrated that Sahl ibn Sad (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said on the day of Khaybar: Tomorrow I will give the banner to a man at whose hands victory will come, one who loves Allaah and His Messenger, and Allaah and His Messenger love him. The people spent that night wondering which of them would be given the banner and all of them were hoping for it. Then he (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) said, Where is Ali? It was said, His eye is hurting. So he spat in his eyes and made duaa for him, and he was healed, as if there had not been anything wrong with him. Then he gave him the flag and he [Ali] said: Shall I fight them so that they will be like us? He said: Go ahead, until you reach their encampment, then call them to Islam and tell them what they are obliged to do, for by Allaah if Allaah were to guide a man at your hands that would be better for you than having red camels [the best kind].
So this call to Islam was accompanied by the force of arms.
Muslim (3261) narrated that Buraydah said: When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) appointed a commander to lead an army or a raiding party, he would advise him to fear Allaah with regard to himself and the Muslims with him, then he said: Fight in the name of Allaah and for the sake of Allaah. Fight those who disbelieve in Allaah, fight but do not steal from the war booty (before it is shared out), betray, or mutilate. Do not kill children. If you meet your enemy of the mushrikeen, call them to three things, and whichever one of them they respond to, accept that from them and leave them alone. Then call them to Islam and if they respond, accept that from them and leave them alone. If they refuse but they pay the jizyah, then they have responded to you, so accept that from them and leave them alone. If they refuse then seek the help of Allaah and fight them
So the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told his commanders to call the kuffaar to Islam whilst wielding their swords over their heads. If they refused to become Muslim then they should pay the jizyah with humility. If they refused then there was nothing left for them but the sword If they refuse then seek the help of Allaah and fight them
4 The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: I have been sent ahead of the Hour with the sword so that Allaah will be worshipped alone, and my provision has been placed in the shade of my spear, and humiliation has been decreed for those who go against my command, and whoever imitates a people is one of them. Narrated by Ahmad, 4869; Saheeh al-Jaami, 2831.
The fact that the sword and power were means of spreading Islam is not a sources of shame for Islam, rather it is one of its strengths and virtues, because that makes people adhere to that which will benefit them in this world and in the Hereafter. Many people are foolish and lacking in wisdom and knowledge, and if they are left to their own devices they will remain blinded to the truth, indulging in their whims and desires. So Allaah has prescribed jihad in order to bring them back to the truth and to that which will benefit them. Undoubtedly wisdom dictates that the fool should be prevented from doing that which will harm him, and should be forced to do that which will benefit him.
Al-Bukhaari (4557) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: You (true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind [Aal- Imraan 3:110 interpretation of the meaning]. He said: You are the best (i.e., the most beneficial) of people for mankind, you bring them in the chains that are around their necks until they enter Islam. Can people be brought in chains except in the case of jihad??
This is something for which Islam deserves to be praised, not condemned. The defeatists should fear Allaah lest they distort this religion and cause it to become weak on the basis of the claim that it is a religion of peace. Yes, it is the religion of peace but in the sense of saving all of mankind from worshipping anything other than Allaah and submitting all of mankind to the rule of Allaah. This is the religion of Allaah, not the ideas of any person or the product of human thought, so that those who promote it should feel ashamed to state its ultimate goal, which is that all religion (worship) should be for Allaah alone. When the ideas that people follow are all produced by human beings and the systems and laws that control their lives are all made up by human beings, then in this case each idea and each system has the right to live safely within its own borders so long as it does not transgress the borders of others, so the various ideas and laws can co-exist and not try to destroy one another. But when there is a divine system and law, and alongside it there are human systems and laws, then the matter is fundamentally different, and the divine law has the right to remove the barriers and free people from enslavement to human beings
Fiqh al-Dawah by Sayyid Qutb, 217-222.
It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daaimah (12/14):
Islam spread by means of proof and evidence to those who listened to the message and responded to it, and it spread by means of force and the sword to those who were stubborn and arrogant, until they were overwhelmed and became no longer stubborn, and submitted to that reality. And Allaah knows best.
Can’t beat them on the battlefield, then infiltrate their society.. and gubamint.
It helps to have sympathizers to the cause in high offices as well. Folk like Brennan, Obammy, yaknow , all the usual riff raff.
