Islam and Beheading

There has been a world-wide outcry against the beheadings of non-Muslims in the Middle East. This is not surprising because there is a natural human revulsion against such grotesque and vile deeds. Likewise, some Muslims have been condemning the terrifying spectacle of these gruesome and bloody beheadings too.  

Justification

Of course, it would, indeed, be rare that anyone would ever argue that it is permissible to behead an innocent person. A rational person would consider such an argument moral insanity. It is axiomatic that an innocent person is never legitimately punished, let alone beheaded. Even the militant Muslims don’t believe that an innocent person deserves to be punished. So, why do they behead these individuals?

A Message to President Obama from a former Muslim

According to many Western leaders, ISIS is barbaric group of Muslims who have completely hijacked the religion of Islam. These statements shows their ignorance of the life and teachings of Muhammad. Do these Western leaders know that Muhammad had many people beheaded? Do they know that Muhammad bragged that he as made successful through terror?

Allah's Apostle said, "... I have been made victorious with terror ... 1

Quoting the Qur'an, the hadith, and the life of Muhammad, Brother Rashid shows that ISIS is following many of the teachings of Muhammad and his close companions.


This week, a friend showed me a photo that he took recently of a Navy ship being escorted by two small, heavily-armed Navy boats. A person mentioned it was necessary because of the potential for terrorism, claiming Islam and the Qur'an have a lot of verses promoting violence. The person who took the photograph objected. He reasoned that every text requires intrepretation and claimed the Qur'an requires interpretation too and is open many different interpretations. Who could argue with such a reasonable approach to a sacred text? Many college professors teach students, words only mean what you want them to mean.  

I wonder what the intended meaning of Qur'an 8:12 is when it states, "When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them."

How should we understand the purpose of the Khilafah Conference of the Hizb ut-Tahrir in Rolling Meadows, IL? The program title is ‘Revolution: Liberation by Revelation - Muslims Marching Toward Victory’. It will be held on Sunday, June 17, 2012 at The Meadows Club. Since it is all a matter of interpretation, how should we interpret the phrase Revolution: Liberation by Revelation (or Liberation by the Qur'an) How would following the directives of the Qur'an change the governance of the USA and Canada? What would North America look like once Muslims attain victory, and Shari'a is the law of the land? More to the point, what does this tell us about ourselves when we put so much effort to dismiss the clear intend of a statement?
