Seen on the web: Islam, the Koran, and You.

The Catholic Church teaches this about Islam, in its official Catechism:

841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”330

A reader at Jihad Watch recently posted the following about the teachings of the Koran.

Islamic Allah is the greatest deceiver of all (3:54) and leads people astray (14:27).

The Koran was made by Allah (10:37) and always been in heaven with Allah (85:21-:22).

The Koran is flawless (39:28) and only in Arabic (39:28, 43:3).

The current Koran has 114 Chapters, yet other original Korans had 111 Chapters (Abdullah bin Masud), while yet others had 116 Chapters (Ubayy bin Ka’b).

What to do?

The world’s most powerful Muslim who reigned as caliph from 644-658 called Uthmam ordered other original Korans burned.

The current Koran, Chapter 33 has 77 verses, but originally had hundreds more.

One of the verses omitted was stoning to death for rape and adultery (Rajam), just like Mohammed ordered done to a mother who finished weaning her infant.

Mohammed is the ideal example of conduct for for Muslim and a prophet (33:21, 68:4), yet illiterate=unlettered (7:157).

Mohammed (51) married child bride Aisha (6) and raped her when she was 9 and he was 54 (Bukhari 7.62.88)

Mohammed says the devil stays in the upper-part of the nose all night (Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 666, Verse 3295).

Muslims are the best of humanity (Koran 3:110).
Muslims are forbidden from doubting ANY part of the Koran (2:1).

Muslims are forbidden from asking questions about the Koran (Koran 5:101).

Muslims are REQUIRED to fight and kill us, even if they don’t want to (2:216, 2:244, 4:89, 4:91).

Muslims MUST crucify, amputate, and slaughter non-Muslims (5:33).

Muslims CANNOT have non-Muslims as friends (5:51).

Muslims are allowed to lie to non-Muslims to spread Islam (3:28, 16:106).

Jews, Christians, and others are apes and pigs (2:65, 5:60, 7:163-166).

Should we tolerate child rape (65:4) and sex slaves (4:24) in Islam by Muslims?

Should we allow Muslims to kill us because it’s the ONLY guaranteed way for Muslims to get to heaven (9:111)?

Should we let Muslims behead us (smite our necks – Koran 8:12, 47:4)?

Should we be killed for refusing to convert to Islam (9:29)?

Should Muslims be killed for leaving Islam (Bukhari 9.84.57)?

Should Infidel women be stoned to death (Rajam) for the crime of adultery and getting raped (Sahih Bukhari 8.82.816)?

  1. Comments from Paul, posted by Doug:

    In today’s world of mass communications and ever increasing media availability we can see cultures and peoples from around the world that are different to our own, behave differently and may dress and look strange or even backward to our modern eye. It is the same world but we are divided from each other not just in geographical distances that remain vast but in understanding and human compassion.

    What have we do to with the Muslim and their out-of-date costume and beliefs which are foreign and some suspect demonic in origin?

    Well the Roman Catholic Church because it works closely with and is open in its greeting to all peoples at least in ideal, reminds us that Muslims are our Brothers and Sisters. They are to be respected as such and indeed our own salvation depends upon how we behave accordingly. Further Catholic Tradition and Understanding now recognizes that the similar attributes of Allah are those of God The Father, Mercy, Justice, Goodness etc. That for example the burning of the Koran is an act of Blasphemy because it disrespects both Muslim Belief and Christian Fellowship with our neighbors. We are to love one another and if we do less than this we are in the greatest peril of grave sin.

    Yet some commentators have read the Koran and found it has absurd statements contained within. They have read about Mohamed and have found he is not Christ. They have their own agendas and these may or may not be in direct conflict with the will of the Catholic Church. They may be dismal opinionated morons that easily succumb to hatred or they may be intellectuals, to University standard but whomever they are, they have forgotten humility. Either way they are simply incorrect.

    We must never be surprised that texts can be found that show inconsistencies or that by brief study of any religious text we find incomprehensible mumblings that seem inconsistent with our own perception of reality. For example The Bible has many statements that would if simply taken out and read as single commands be laughable and even dangerous to society. Yet we understand that such verse picking lacks intellectual merit because it fails to have concern for the tradition or time or cultural setting of the texts. If we simply read Scripture and accept everything as literal as some Christians suggest then we fail to appreciate both its beauty or modern reality. We are sadly wrong.

    Therefore to take texts from the Koran and hold these up to the light of scrutiny as if we have discovered the failed revelation of Islam is painfully inadequate. We have failed to appreciate both Islam and our Neighbor and to suggest that our motives were pure is to disregard the classic warning of Good intentions . . .

    As for the comments on the life of Mohamed this fails to take into account that he is not the Christ nor do Muslims recognize him as Divine as Christians do Jesus. Thus the story of his life should be seen in the culture and history of his time. If we shall look for the ill in men we shall find it but as Christians and as Catholics we must strive to look for the good in our neighbor.

    Hence Islam and Muslims today are about generosity and the desire to try to live in peace. They are not terrorists nor shall they be disrespected and sneered upon by people that lack their humanity and compassion. If some Muslims behave badly and quote support from their Holy Books then we should never be alarmed by this perversion. Sadly there are Christians still today that do as much and claim support from Scripture. All religion is plagued by such abuse but such people have nothing to do with the will of God nor his teaching in true belief. Satan himself quotes the Scriptures to Christ but his understanding and appreciation of the God of Love behind the texts has simply failed.

    The Catholic Church is right to commend Muslims as our brethren before the judgment of God. It asks its faithful to show respect and compassion towards them and we should strive every day of our life on this earth to welcome and be kind towards them. Hence we must banish the absurd claims of those that sow hate and discord and rather recall love always; at everything we do and towards those we meet, no matter race, gender or creed.
