“Among all love and affections, the primary essential love and the love which is the most unique and highest of all is the indispensable love for Allah (Almighty). This is because Allah (Almighty) has the most unique attributes, thus being the inventor, maker, and creator of all. If one reflects on what he loves, one finds Allah (Almighty), the Lord of the universe, and His Glory and perfection in everything he loves. Love of Allah (Almighty) is the main source of every good deed and beauty. Love of Allah (Almighty) makes one a good and better person, child, parent, neighbour, and friend. “
By Prof. Dr. Mahmud Es’ad Cosan (an Islamic Scholar and Naqshbandi Shaykh).
Let’s consider today what is the most unique and highest love of allah in Islam. Does he expect love from us? Which attributes does have allah in Islam and in the Bible? Should we love Him because He is the Maker and Creator of us? Can we see glory and perfection of Allah in our life? If Allah the source of every good deed and beauty? Does love of Allah make you to be a good and better person?
To answer to this questions we need to meditate on the words of God written in the Holy Scripture and on some suras of Quran.
Love for the sake of Allah and hate for the sake of Allah is a requirement for every Muslim. This Islamic concept is known as Al Wala’ Wal Bara’ (loyalty and disavowal). A Muslim is required to love what Allah loves, and hate what Allah hates. But what does Allah in Islam hate? How the Islamic source of teaching Quran/Hadith can affect Muslims? Let’s read calls of Islam:
“Allah the Exalted says to His faithful servants, whom He commanded to disown the disbelievers, to be enemies with them, and to distant themselves and separate from them:
(Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim and those with him,) meaning, his followers who believed in him,
(when they said to their people: “Verily we are free from you…) meaning, `we disown you,’
(and whatever you worship besides Allah: we rejected you,) meaning, `we disbelieve in your religion and way,’
(and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred forever) meaning, `Animosity and enmity have appeared between us and you from now and as long as you remain on your disbelief; we will always disown you and hate you,’
(until you believe in Allah alone,) meaning, `unless, and until, you worship Allah alone without partners and disbelieve in the idols and rivals that you worship besides Him.’ Allah’s statement,”
The Good Example of Ibrahim and His Followers, when They disowned Their Disbelieving People
Allah declares that without doubt, Muhammad is truly His Messenger,
(Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.) and this quality includes every beautiful description. Allah praises the Companions of the Messenger , may Allah be pleased with them all,
(And those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, merciful among themselves.) just as He, the Exalted and Most Honored, said in another Ayah,
(Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers.)(5:54) This is the description of the believers; harsh with the disbelievers, merciful and kind to the believers, angry without smiling before the disbelievers, smiling and beaming with pleasure before his believing brother. Allah the Exalted said in another Ayah,
(O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you.) (9:123) The Prophet said,
(The parable of the believers in their kindness and mercy for each other, is that of the body: when one of its organs falls ill, the rest of the body responds with fever and sleeplessness.) The Prophet also said,
(A believer to another believer is like a building whose different parts enforce each other.)
Qualities of the Faithful Believers and Their Refinement
So, what does Allah hate in Islam?
1. The‘Christian’ Allah calls us to love enemies. Islam teaches: do not love them. In Muslim teaching, loving an infidel (kafir) is seen as going against god since god does not love the infidel! But why Islamic god does NOT love people created by Him?
“[Jesus said:] But I tell you : Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:44-48)
2.The‘Christian’ Allah is God of LOVE. No comparable statement is found in the Qur’an.
3. Islamic Allah Allah loves those who are spiritual pure and clean (al-Baqarah 2:222)
But in all the examples above, the love of God is conditional upon the believer being good or clean. If the believer should turn back from God, Islamic Allah does not love him any more (Âl ‘Imran 3:32).
But the ‘christian’ Allah choose Israel to be His people not because they are cleverer or better, but because of God’s love toward them! God so loved the world that He gave us His Son to believe in Him and live eternally through our FAITH in Him.
The LORD did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands. ( Deuteronomy 4:36-37, 7:7-9).
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. (John 3:16-18)
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. We love because he (God) first loved us. (1 John 4:10, 19)
4. Look who is not loved by the islamic Allah:
But the Christian Allah loves all of us and does not want sinners to perish:
“But God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were still yet sinners, Christ died for us….For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” (Romans 5:8-10)
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
Brothers, NOTE: no where in the Qur’an does it say that Allah loves the unbeliever! But why? Is unbeliever an animal? Is unbeliever guilty that he was created by Allah? If disbelief is sin then are we all not sinners? We all in our sins are equal to disbelievers! Because we ALL are sinners and God said that punishment for sin is DEATH. So, the word ‘unbeliever’ is EQUAL to the word ‘sinner’. Why we all –sinners- are NOT loved by the Islamic Allah? Because He never claimed to be LOVE! He NEVER claimed to be God of LOVE!
This contrast sharply with the Bible which teaches that God loves the believer and unbeliever:
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ.” (Ephesians 2:3-5)
Then the Lord said to me, ‘God again and love Gomer, who is loved by her husband [Hosea], yet an adulteress, even as the Lord loves the sons of Israel, though they turn to other gods….” (Hosea 3:1)
Jesus said in Luke 6:32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.” If God then only loves those who love Him, or do good, or are pure then this love is not above or beyond man’s love since man also loves and appreciates such people. But a love that goes beyond the surface and loves the unlovable and seeks to win over even the most wicked and rebellious can only be a manifestation of the One who is LOVE – Allahu Muhibba!!!
Listen brothers again (I John 4):
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
9 Inthis the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His one and only Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
10 Inthis is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.
15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
19 We love Him because He first loved us.
20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.
We have the testimony from God who states to His own:
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. Jeremiah 31:3
“The Son of man (Jesus) has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10
So brothers, what we can see: there are two different Gods. The Christian God LOVES us but hates our sins. Love of Islamic Allah is conditional. The Qur’an says that Allah desires to lead people astray (Qur’an Sura 6:39, 126). He does not help those who are led astray by him (Sura 30:29), and Allah desires to use them to populate hell (Sura 32:13):
32:13:“If We had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, “I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together.”
Let’s remember what is written here:
61:4 Truly Allah loves [hubb]those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.
The Islamic God loves those who fight in his cause but the Christian God teaches us the WAY of LOVE, FORGIVENESS, RESPECT, MERCY but WHY?
Because the TRUE God REVEALED Himself to us on the pages of His Holy Scripture and in the life of His Son Jesus as the TRUE God of LOVE.
Love is His nature….His essence…He is not a human being to call us for bloodshed or killings!
But He is the ONLY true God who WARNED us that all killers, unbelievers, sinners will join millions of such people in hell.
Because the Kingdom of Heaven is offered to you Muslims!
Come to Ibn Allah and TAKE it. Enter there through your FAITH.
But you reject God by rejecting His Son/Ibn Allah.
HOW can you enter into the Kingdom of Heaven if you REJECT to enter there!!!!???
Make a step of FAITH now and LIVE eternally with your LOVING Father and His Son and the Holy Spirit in YOUR Kingdom of Heaven!
”For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved.”
1 John 4 (New King James Version)
1 John 4
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
Knowing God Through Love
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
Seeing God Through Love
12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
The Consummation of Love
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.
Obedience by Faith
20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.
God Jesus said,
“I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Arabs and Muslims,
be SAVED by God RIGHT NOW!
Brothers, Islam and the Bible call Jesus as Kalimat-Ullah- WORD of Allah!
Will you reject God by rejecting His SON?
Look if you will reject Son, it means you dont believe in His Father Allah. It means you are AGAINST Allah.
Islam came later after prophecies of Allah already existed that His Son Jesus will save the world from sins. So, what is Islam? ONE of religions. Look brother, there are millions religions and all they worship millions of gods which are called by God of Ibrahim as IDOLS.
Way for people worshiping idols is hell. Islam is among them. Why? Because Islam makes God of our father Ibrahim a LIAR by claiming that there is NO Son of God. Islam is closing eyes of Muslims to the words of Allah. Which man on the earth is able to BEAR INIQUITIES of the world? Sins of people? How SERVANT canJUSTIFY many people? It is impossible for a man. But only for God! We worship perfect God. He DIED instead on us. His name is the most perfect – Jesus….Isa Ibn Allah…Isa Allah…Issa Al Massih. And He is God of our father Ibrahim. Turn from sins to HIM and LIVE eternally as son of God!
Be saved right NOW
How to LIVE with God Jesus?
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.
Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR

Contradictions in Islam and Qur’an
If terrorism is to throw terror into the heart of your enemy and the enemy of Allah then we thank Him, the most merciful, the most compassionate, for enabling us to be terrorists’—Ramzi BinalShibh
Raid on a Meccan Caravan and on B. Damrah at al-Abwa/ Waddan by Muhammad —August, 623CE
Muhammad became quite frustrated with the dismal failures of the previous three attempts to plunder the vulnerable Quraysh merchant caravans. Time was of essence, and he felt the pressure of producing results (read profit) to please his believers. With this urgency in mind, he personally, took charge of this raiding foray and led his followers, to his very personal first step in the act of bloodshed and pillage. This was the raid at al-Abwa, also known as the Ghazwah of Waddan. As said before, he himself conducted this raid, directed at Abwa, the spot where his mother lay buried. To his dismay, when he arrived at the site, the Quraysh caravan had already passed. Disappointed, he then raided the nearest tribe of B. Damra (a branch of B. Bakr) and forced them to conclude a treaty of no aggression (by B. Damra). This treaty was the first written accord of Muhammad with any foreign tribe. The agreement was of benefit to Muhammad, as it prevented the B. Damra to mobilize forces against him, nor could they assist Muhammad’s enemy who were principally the Quraysh. In return, Muhammad pledged not to wage any war against this tribe. Then Muhammad went as far as Waddan in pursuit of the Quraysh caravan, but it eluded him. Although he failed in his pursuit of the Quraysh booty, he cleverly concluded this strategically important treaty of friendship with this nomadic (B. Damra) tribe. The treaty provided him with an ally in his raid on Quraysh caravans. After concluding the treaty he returned to Medina after fifteen days.
[Please note: Ghazwa means either a military force when an Apostle (Rasul) leads it or an Imam. It also means a sudden attack on a caravan or another tribe for the purpose of seizing property and women.
Sariyah or brigade means a small force commanded by one of the Imam’s lieutenants.
There is an allusion in Sahih Bukhari of this very first, personal act of terrorism by Muhammad:
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 256: Narrated As-Sab bin Jaththama:
This Hadith clearly says that in his terror operations Muhammad did not even want to spare the women and children of the infidels.
Raid on a Rich Meccan Caravan at Bawat by Muhammad —October, 623CE
A month after his raid at al-Abwa, Muhammad personally led two hundred men including some citizens of Medina to Bawat, a place on the caravan route of the Quraysh merchants, where a herd of fifteen hundred (1,500) to two thousand-five hundred (2,500) camels, accompanied by one hundred (100) riders, under the leadership of Umayyah ibn Khalaf, a Quraysh was proceeding. The purpose of this raid, obviously, was the plunder of this exceedingly rich Quraysh caravan.
No battle took place and the raid resulted in no booty. Muhammad went up to Dhat al-Saq, in the desert of al-Khabar. He prayed there and a mosque was built at the spot.
This was the first raid where a few al-Usharayh Ansars took part. They were attracted to the raid with the prospect of striking it rich through pillage.
Raid on a Meccan Caravan at al-Ushayrah, in the district of Yanbu by Muhammad —November, 623CE
This was Muhammad’s third personal raid. Between one hundred-fifty and two hundred (note the increasing number of Jihadists joining in the robbery) followers joined this terror operation. They had thirty camels that they rode upon by turns. When they arrived at al-Usharayh in the direction of Yanbo, they expected to waylay upon a rich Meccan caravan towards Syria led by Abu Sufyan. Muhammad already had the intelligence report of this caravan’s departure from Mecca. He waited for a month (+) for this caravan to pass. Unfortunately, it was too late; for, when Muhammad reached the intended spot of plunder, the Meccan caravan had already passed. The readers should keep in mind of this raid, as this was the same caravan that gave rise to the famous action at Badr (Badr II) during its return journey. In this operation, Muhammad entered into an alliance with Bani Mudlij, a tribe inhabiting the vicinity of al-Usharayh. He also concluded another treaty with Bani Damra. All those treaties established good political connections for him.
Raid on Muhammad’s Milch Camels at Badr (Badr I) by Kurz ibn Jabir al-Fihri —December, 623CE
After those six unprovoked and hostile attacks on the Quraysh caravans, the Quraysh had had enough. It was now time for them to retaliate and send a strong message to Muhammad that his highway robbery cannot go unpunished forever. With this end in view, Kurz ibn Jabir al-Fihri, allay of the Quarysh raided the vicinity of Medina where Muhammad’s milch camels were pasturing. This was conducted ten days after Muhammad returned to Medina from his unsuccessful plundering attempt at the Quraysh caravan at al-Usharayh. Having heard of this attack, Muhammad swiftly went out looking for Kurz until he reached the Safwa valley, close to Badr. This was the first raid at Badr or Badr I. Kurz escaped the capture; Muhammad returned to Medina and stayed there for the next three months. It is said that later, Muhammad caught Kurz and he (Kurz) converted to Islam.
Raid on Meccan Caravan at Nakhla by Abd Allah ibn Jahsh, the First Successful Plunder —December, 623CE
After his return from the first Badr encounter, Muhammad sent Abd Allah b. Jahsh in Rajab with eight emigrants and without any Ansar for another terror operation. Abd Allah b. Jahsh was a maternal cousin of Muhammad. The participants in this plunder were: 1. Abu Haudhayfa 2. Abd Allah b Jahsh 3. Ukkash b. Mihsan 4. Utba b. Ghazwan 5. Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas 6. Amir b.Rabia 7. Waqid b. Abd Allah and 8. Khalid b. al-Bukayr. Some historians say that there were between seven to twelve partakers in this raiding/plundering party of the Muslims. It will be useful to remember the names of these very first Islam’s terrorists, as we shall witness, later, that their names crop up in many other terror operations.
Muhammad gave Abd Allah b. Jahsh a letter, but not to be read until he had travelled for two days and then to do what he was instructed to do in the letter without putting pressure on his companions. Abd Allah proceeded for two days, then he opened the letter; it told him to proceed until he reached at Nakhla, between Mecca and Taif, lie in wait for the Quraysh and observe what they were doing. Abd Allah b. Jahsh told his companions that whoever chose martyrdom (read terrorism) was free to join him and whoever did not could go back. All the companions agreed to follow him (a few biographers write that two Muslims decided not to be martyrs and chose to return to Medina). Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas and Utbah b. Ghazwan lost a camel that they were taking turns to ride. The camel strayed and went to Buhran. So they went out looking for the runaway camel to Buhran and fell behind the raiding party.
As instructed by the Prophet, Abd Allah and the rest of the party then proceeded, and soon they arrived at Nakhla. Nakhla was a valley to the east of Mecca, about half-way to Taif. It was the usual route to Syria for the Meccan caravans. Muhammad had the secret information that a rich Meccan caravan, lightly guarded, laden with dry raisin, wine leather and other goods was soon to pass by the route.
Four Quraysh men guarded this donkey caravan. They were:
Soon the Meccan caravan arrived at Nakhla guarded by the four Quraysh men. When they saw the Muslims they were afraid of them. One of Abd Allah b. Jahsh’s men, Ukkash b Mihsan, was shaven in head to hide the real purpose of their journey and to give the Quraysh the impression of lesser Hajj (Umra); for, it was the month (Rajab) when hostilities were forbidden. When the Quraysh saw the shaven head of Ukkash, they thought that the Muslims were on their way for pilgrimage and they felt relieved and safe and started to prepare food for themselves. That was how the first band of Muslim Jihadists deceived their prey.
Due to the prevalence of a sacred month, either at the beginning of Rajab, or at the end of it(the opinion among the historians vary), Rajab being one of the four sacred months when there was a total ban on warfare and bloodshed in the Arabian Peninsula, Abd Allah b. Jahsh was, at first, hesitant to attack the caravan. Nevertheless, after much deliberation, the Muslims did not want this rich caravan to escape their hand. So they decided to kill as many Quraysh as they could and take a large booty. They attacked the Quraysh while they (the Quraysh) were busy preparing their food. In the short battle that ensued, Waqid b. Abd Allah killed Amr b. Hadrami, the leader of the Quraysh caravan. Nawfal b.Abd Allah escaped. The Muslims took Uthman b. Abd Allah and al-Hakam b. Kaysan as prisoners. . Abd Allah b. Jahsh returned to Medina with the booty and with the two captured Quraysh men. He had already decided to give one-fifth of the booty to Muhammad, and divide the rest among them. The prevailing share of the leader of a plundering party at that time was one-quarter of the booty. It is not clear why Abd Allah b. Jahsh decided on one-fifth booty, as Allah did not yet decide the provision of ‘Khums’ (gang leader’s commission on booty of plunder/theft) for Muhammad in verse 8:41. This verse was released after the Badr war, which took place after the plunder at Nakhla.
And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things.
Since this bloodshed took place during a sacred month, Muhammad was quite unwilling to start an un-ending cycle of revenge killings. The Quraysh also spread everywhere the news of the raid and the killing by Muhammad in the sacred month. Therefore, he rebuked them (the Muslims) for fighting in the sacred month and refused to take any share from the booty. Then verse 2:217 regarding fighting in the sacred month was revealed.
They ask thee concerning fighting in the Prohibited Month. Say: “Fighting therein is a grave (offence); but graver is it in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the path of Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and drive out its members.” Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you Turn back from their faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they will be companions of the Fire and will abide therein.
This revelation permitted Muhammad to conduct war during the sacred months.
Then Abd Allah b. Jahsh divided the booty, one-fifth going to Muhammad. He also decided to make more money by asking ransom for the two captives. However, Muhammad refused to accept the ransoms from the Quraysh until the two of his men, Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas and Utbah b. Ghazwan returned from searching the straying camel. He was afraid that the Quraysh might kill them if they found them. When Sa’d and Utbah returned unharmed, Muhammad released the two Quraysh prisoners on payment of their ransom of one thousand six hundred (1,600) Dirhams (one Dirham = 1/10 Dinar; one Dinar = 4.235 gm of gold; at the current price of gold this ransom was approximately USD 8,000) per head (i.e total ransom money was USD 16,000). It is reported that, soon after his release, Hakam b. Kaysan became a Muslim, probably after witnessing the profitability in terrorism a la Islamic style. Later, he was killed at the battle of Bir Mauna. The other prisoner, Uthman b. Abd Allah returned to Mecca and died as an unbeliever.
The Islamic name of this first successful plunder is ‘Nakhla Raid.’ It was also the first raid on which the Muslims seized the first captive, and the first life they took. Rightfully, Abd Allah b. Jahsh was called the Amir al-Mominun, that is, the commander of the faithful.
After the success of Nakhla raid Muhammad felt militarily strong and promulgated the rule on the justification of transaction and the distribution of spoils of plunder. He actually legalized and legitimized plunder.
This successful raid on the Quraysh caravans gravely alarmed the Meccans, because their prosperity completely depended upon the regular and un-interrupted trade to Syria. The trading with Abyssinia and Yemen was of lesser importance. Even the trading caravan towards Abyssinia and Yemen did not look safe from the marauding army of Muhammad. The Nakhla attack also greatly unnerved the Meccans. They now believed that Muhammad had very little respect for life, and absolutely no concern for the sanctity of the sacred months. So the Meccans resolved to avenge the bloodshed. However, the Quraysh restrained their hostility. Muhammad still had a few of his followers residing at Mecca, including his own daughter, Zaynab. The Quraysh did not take any revenge on the remaining followers of Muhammad (including Muhammad’s daughter) at Mecca, neither did they make any attempt to harass his beloved daughter, Zaynab.
Muhammad, on the other hand, after the success at Nakhla, contemplated a more severe and mortal attack on the Quraysh. Allah now gave him the permission to fight the unbelievers in verses 22:39-42, 2:190-194. As well, the raid at Nakhla was justified by the ‘expulsion’ of the believers from Mecca. However, the true reason was “until the religion became God’s alone.” That meant, until all the Meccans (or the world) accepted Islam.
To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged;- and verily, Allah is most powerful for their aid;-
(They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, “our Lord is Allah”. Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will).
(They are) those who, if We establish them in the land, establish regular prayer and give regular charity, enjoin the right and forbid wrong: with Allah rests the end (and decision) of (all) affairs.
If they treat thy (mission) as false, so did the peoples before them (with their Prophets),- the People of Noah, and ‘Ad and Thamud;
Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.
And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.
But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression.
The prohibited month for the prohibited month,- and so for all things prohibited,- there is the law of equality. If then any one transgresses the prohibition against you, Transgress ye likewise against him. But fear Allah, and know that Allah is with those who restrain themselves.
Those who were reluctant to join in the war of plunder were reproved. Allah’s revelation on this came down in verses 47:20-21. These verses granted paradise to those who fight (or terrorize and plunder) for Islam i.e. Jihad, and are killed.
Those who believe say, “Why is not a sura sent down (for us)?” But when a sura of basic or categorical meaning is revealed, and fighting is mentioned therein, thou wilt see those in whose hearts is a disease looking at thee with a look of one in swoon at the approach of death. But more fitting for them-
Were it to obey and say what is just, and when a matter is resolved on, it were best for them if they were true to Allah.
Allah then asked these terrorists to “strike off the heads of the unbelievers; to make a great slaughter and bind them fast in bonds” in verse 47:3-4
This because those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the Truth from their Lord: Thus does Allah set forth for men their lessons by similitudes.
Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.
Furthermore, the true believers were expected not only to fight but also to contribute materially towards the cost of war (4:66-67, 9:88, 9:111), to kill and be killed. Those who did this were promised a higher rank in paradise (4:74, 4:95). The believers were asked to prepare whatever force in their ability, troops, horses, etc. to strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers (remember Dr. Mahathir’s famous Jewish-bashing speech at OIC conference in late 2003?) (9:73, 123, 8:60).
If We had ordered them to sacrifice their lives or to leave their homes, very few of them would have done it: But if they had done what they were (actually) told, it would have been best for them, and would have gone farthest to strengthen their (faith);
And We should then have given them from our presence a great reward;
But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.
Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.
Let those fight in the cause of Allah Who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah,- whether he is slain or gets victory – Soon shall We give him a reward of great (value).
Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-
O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell,- an evil refuge indeed.
O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
These messages were promulgated within two or three years after Muhammad’s arrival at Medina. These promulgations were not only for the refugees (Muhajirs) but also to all the men of Medina.

Questions and Answers
Conversation with Sazie Johnson:
I must admit that some of the Muslims have good questions. All their questions can be answered from Holy Scriptures. The only problem is I have so little time at my personal computer.
I am a mechanical engineer. I design parts not only for cars, but also for water towers, and ships, and airplanes. My job requires a lot of concentrations, a lot of study, and a lot of time at the company’s computers — not my personal computer. And when I finally get some time for my personal computer, I see over 40 e-mails form Muslims — most of them demanding answers to their questions on the Youtube post-a-comment. Here is one good question from a Muslim: “Show me in the Bible where Jesus said. ‘I am God. Worship me’”
Almost all Muslims demand this from Christians. In all honesty this demand is unfair, because Muslims seek to find the answer in the Bible. In order to seek the answer to a particular question in the Bible, the question must first be asked in the Bible. Jesus was more often asked about His relationship with God, and never once was He asked if He was God. How does one expect a Christian to find the answer in the Bible to a question that was never asked in the Bible?
The Holy Bible is already written. None can add to it, or subtract from it. Nowhere in the Holy Bible was Jesus asked the question: “Are you God?” Therefore, nowhere in the Holy Bible did Jesus answer or dodge this particular question. But however, Jesus introduced Himself as God in the Book of Revelation. In verse 1:8 Jesus speaks to the Apostle John: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”
I must admit that some of the Muslims have good questions. My prayer is that far more Muslims will find time to sit at the feet of the Gospel of Jesus Christ — The Star Divine and The Hope for Life.
Conversation with Linda:
I’m new to the group. I just read your email where you explain that the Holy Bible does not tell us directly that we should worship Jesus Christ, or that Jesus Christ is God …..
When the Holy Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is the very Word of God made flesh, then that is our answer. God and Christ are One just as any man is one with his word. And we cannot claim to respect a man, but not respect his word. Likewise, we cannot claim to worship God when we do not worship His Word, and we cannot worship His Word unless we also worship God. They are One, indivisible.
A foreboding dream about “Allah” and Islam
Eight years ago, Jesus Christ appeared to me in a vision. Since that time, I’ve had dreams every night except one – that night, I had prayed to Jesus to please give me rest from the dreams, and He answered my prayer. Most of the dreams carry a personal message meant only for me. But over the years, I’ve also had several dreams that involved the world, the future of the world, and the people of the world. I’ve also dreamed of things I had no prior waking knowledge about – like the night I dreamed about a type of bomb that could penetrate through the earth, and then learned on the Internet the next day that such a bomb exists: It’s called a “bunker buster bomb”.
I see these emails passing through my inbox, and I never join in. But the last few weeks, I’ve been feeling moved to share a particular dream I had not too long ago. This dream was given to me while I was researching the relationship between the Roman Catholic church, and Islam:
In the dream, it was night-time, and I was standing outside. The dream had a dark feel to it. Suddenly, I heard this message spoken to me by a strong, commanding voice,
“THE KORAN CURSES THE KORAN! IT’S WRITTEN IN THE PAGES OF THE KORAN!”
From there, I was carried away to stand at the gates of a mausoleum. The gates were locked, but I could see through the bars. Inside the mausoleum, I could see several large tombs. A man standing inside the mausoleum walked out in front of me to one of the tombs. This particular tomb had a red button at the base of it. The man pressed down on the button, and when he did, “Allah” rose up out of the tomb and lunged straight at me! I was made to understand, in the dream, that “Allah” wanted to destroy me because of the knowledge that had been given to me about “Allah”, about Islam, and about the Koran. But before I had time to really feel afraid, my eyes were suddenly opened in the spirit, and I could see this figure for what it truly was: I suddenly could see it was nothing more than a lifeless robot, which could only operate as it was directed to operate. I was made to understand, from all of this, that “Allah” had no real power to destroy me. I woke up feeling comforted.
A short time after the dream, I began praying to Jesus to please give me a deeper understanding of the dream. This is the understanding that was given to me:
So long as Islam is alive in the world, then the people who serve Islam will appear to be blessed by it. But the season of Islam, and of “Allah”, will come to an end. And because “Allah” is a false god, then when “Allah” descends into the grave, in the grave he will remain. From that time onward, there will be no more blessings forthcoming from Islam, nor from “Allah”, since it’s impossible for a dead thing to bestow blessings upon anyone.
Dear, precious people of Islam, you are being dangerously deceived! You MUST come out of this false religion! But not only must you come out of Islam, you must do as Jesus Christ has commanded, and come out of the world! By observing where a man has come from, and the direction he travels in, we can discern where he’ll end up. So it is with the world. By observing the world, from past to present, we can see that it is headed for certain destruction – precisely as warned by Jesus Christ. When promised the world as their reward, the people of Islam are promised nothing, since the world will end in nothingness. You must come out of Islam, come out of the world, turn to Christ, repent of your sins, and follow only Him! Please, do not give yourselves over to a dying world, which has already been given over to the devil himself!
Thank you for answering my email, and my question.
I could never again believe in any God but the true and living God, since Christ Himself appeared to me in a vision, and He began showing me many things. I’ve witnessed Him performing many miracles with my own eyes, and continue to witness His miracles even today. No one can cause me to unsee the things that Christ has been showing me.
About the question I asked …..
Does this mean that in Islam, there is no such thing as repentance? Does this mean that in Islam, a person is told to continue living in sin, but so long as he follows certain steps, then he will be given entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven?
I’m very glad to meet you. Thank you for responding to my email. Let the reasoning begin!
It is written in the Holy Bible that God caused His Own Word to become flesh, and His Word is Jesus Christ. Now you are telling me that we should not try to understand God with our ordinary minds, but yet you are using your ordinary mind as evidence that what is written in the Holy Bible is false. This is no evidence at all. You’re right, God did not NEED for His Word to become flesh, because it is not God Who needed redemption. We are the ones who NEEDED for God’s Word to become flesh, so that by His Word, Who is Jesus Christ, we might be redeemed from our sins. Wanting and needing are two different things: We are blessed that while we NEEDED God’s Word to come into the world to save us, God also WANTED this for us.
I have stood in Christ’s presence, Ahmed. I have heard His voice with my own ears, witnessed His glory and power with my own eyes. I have no doubt left in me Who the true and living God is. And I am willing to promise you on all that I love most that you are being deceived by Islam.
Conversation with Bahira:
I didnt know the answer to this question. And I started reading the Bible again to find out how to be born again. And I found many verses saying that I should REPENT, Confess my sins and BELIEVE in God Jesus. Only then I will be born by God for eternal life with Him.
Now I will address to my second brother Ibrahim: Brother, are you born again by God to LIVE with Him?! You should. Or you will perish.
This question asked by my brother saved my life. Now this question will tear your heart to pieces to give you a chance of salvation. The Chance is given. Will you use it?!!!

Brother, you know earlier I said the same thing to Arabs asking them to delete all verses (60%) on Jihad and killings in Quaran and Hadith because it is appropriate for the religion calling islam religion of peace!

There is only ONE God who LOVED you
how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
The Holy Scripture of our father Ibrahim consists of the Old Testament and the New Testament. But what does the word ‘testament’ mean?
So, brothers, is this Testament or ALLIANCE with God only for Jews? NO. This Alliance..this Future God is offering to Arabs, to Muslims, to ALL nations. But what is the meaning of this Alliance? Let ALLOW God of our father Ibrahim answer this question:
What does it mean for Arab nation and Muslims?
He NEVER was in Islam! TURN to Him and He will fill your life with HIS LOVE and PRESENCE!
God, please save EVERYONE who will read this message. Ruh Al Qudus please separate them from this world and lead them into YOUR WORLD ..into Your PRESENCE!

Re: Creation of the world
Just to simplify…:
1 “And God saw the light, that is was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night…the first day” (Gen. 1:4-5)
I suggested that MY BE the translucent cloud layer was removed so that the sun, moon and stars shown through. Notice the unusual construction at this point God removed the translucent cloud cover from the planet to allow the stars, moon, and Sun to be seen from the surface of the earth (the frame of reference of all Genesis 1). The text then reiterates what God had already done in Genesis 1:1 regarding the creation of the sun, moon, and stars. But why? To explain us the time frame of events over days, seasons, and years – obviously more than 24 hours long. What is the day in the Holy Scripture? A literal translation of the Hebrew word, ‘yom’, which can mean a twelve hour period of time, a twenty-four hour period of time, or a long, indefinite period of time.
2 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…the 1st day” (Gen. 1:1, 5),
3 “And the earth brought forth grass…and the tree yielding fruit…the third day” (Gen. 1:12-13),
4 “And God called the firmament heaven” (Gen. 1:8),
5 “And on the 7th day God ended his work…and he rested on the 7th day…” (Gen. 2:2).
6 “And God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Gen. 1:26-27). Is God one or many? –God is ONE and He consists of THREE personalities: God the Father, God the Son, the Holy Spirit. They are equal in power and origin but they act in UNITY. They are tri-united.
7 Gen. 1:26 (“God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness'”) appears to contradict Isaiah 40:25, which says, “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.” – It doesn’t contradict to Isaiah 40:25. because even I can say that THERE is NONE like my God! Stating that I say that there is no one other god! All other gods do not exist. They are created by fallen angels/ jinnes, or they are products of imagination of people. But stating that I KNOW that I was created in God’s image that’s why I am THREE and ONE. I am ONE Bahira and yet I am body+soul+spirit. If my body will die, I will not die!!!
Re: Bible’s prophecies of Allah for Muslims and Arabs
Brothers, let’s read the prophecies of Allah about Isa Ibn Allah and how they were fulfilled:
Jeremiah 31:15 This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more.”
Jesus Christ would live in Egypt:
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.
Jesus Christ would live in Galilee:
Isaiah 9:1-2 Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the Gentiles, by the way of the sea, along the Jordan– 2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.
Jesus Christ would heal people of disease and sickness:
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.
Jesus Christ would be betrayed by a friend:
Psalms 41:9 Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
Jesus Christ would be forsaken by His flock:
Jesus Christ would be given vinegar and gall:
Psalms 69:21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.
Jesus Christ would be buried by a rich man:
Isaiah 53:9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.
Jesus Christ would rise from the dead on the third day:
Hosea 6:2 After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence.
Jesus Christ would ascend to the right hand of God the Father:
Psalms 16:11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Jesus Christ would exercise His Priestly Office in Heaven:
Zechariah 6:13 It is he who will build the temple of the LORD, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two.’
Jesus Christ would be the Cornerstone of God’s community/Ummah:
Isaiah 28:16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
Jesus Christ would be sought after by Gentiles:
Isaiah 11:10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious.
Jesus Christ would be accepted by the gentiles:
Isaiah 11:10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious.

Shape my dreams to conform with the visions You have given me. I have many forks int he road but I am not afraid for You will guide me in the right path. It is the last desire left to me. Then I will live out my days in peace no matter the circumstances.
Jesus, what could I have done without You?
How fortunate I am that I know You
Praising You Lord
Lord, i thank you fo the many miracles you did today and many lives you have set free.
I agree with the previous two postings. I am tired of people calling this season everything but Christmas–it is Christmas and if someone does not celebrate it we should not be changing the name of the Holiday! eg. Holiday tree, Xmas etc.
Wishing everyone joy, peace, health and goodwill this Christmas!! And may we all have the strength to forgive.
Is Christmas a Festive Guilt Trip?
Jesus –I have wondered why people go out and
Of course there is that fat, jolly man who brings the presents for what WE want. We can give him a list of OUR wants. Self indulgence is Christmas for many. A guilt trip to do things in the hopes that others will forgive us for ignoring them the rest of the year.
Christmas had evolved and spiraled right out of Christiandom. How changed it has become!Not for the better — satan’s fingerprints all over it.
Lord those of us who want a Christ centered Christmas can but for how much longer–
If we do not stand for something we stand for nothing and for nothing to this world we will stand. JESUS HELP UP THIS DAY TO BE BOLD AND STAND FOR YOU SO THE WORLD TAKES NOTICE AND
Amen with Hosannahs and Praises~
