If Islam Is Democratic, Then Why Is No One Free To Leave It?

Islam. The totalitarian ideology cloaked in the Burqa of religion. It has been fooling people since…well, since the Dark Ages. An era it has never left.

Ill-educated elitists, intellectually lazy populations and Taqiyya-practicing Mohammedans work as a well-oiled machination to convince the World that Islam is not only a “religion of peace”, BUT that it is compatible with freedom and democracy.

There is a plethora of evidence to disprove both of the above, and one glaring piece is revealed with this question: If Islam is compatible with democracy, then why aren’t Muslims free to choose to leave Islam?

That would appear to be a reasonable expectation for a “religion of peace” to actually be peaceful toward those who decide to leave…but not so.

Here is what the Quran and the Hadiths (traditions of the prophet) say concerning those who leave Islam (apostates):

From the Quran: Sura 9:73,74:

Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fire. They swear by God that they said nothing. Yet they uttered the word of unbelief and renounced Islam after embracing it. They sought to do what they could not attain. Yet they had no reason to be spiteful except perhaps because God and His apostle had enriched them through His bounty. If they repent, it will indeed be better for them, but if they give no heed, God will sternly punish them, both in this world and in the world to come. They shall have none on this earth to protect or help them.

[Dawood]

Here Allah urges Muhammad to “make war” on the people who have left Islam. It also states that “Allah will punish them in this world and in the world to come”.

Ostensibly, “make war” cannot be interpreted as “give them flowers and candy”, unless you’ve been hitting a bong…

Sura 47:23-28

If you renounced the faith, you would surely do evil in the land, and violate the ties of blood. Such are those on whom God has laid His curse, leaving them deaf and sightless…. Those who return to unbelief after God’s guidance has been revealed to them are seduced by Satan and inspired by him….

So, to re-cap…if one chooses to leave Islam, from the Quran we learn:
— Muhammed is to “make war” on them.
— Allah will punish them in this world and the next.
— Allah curses them.

Nothing peaceful and loving there…on to the Hadiths…

These quotes are from Bukhari’s Hadith, translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan:

Bukhari, volume 9, #17

Narrated Abdullah: Allah’s Messenger said, “The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Messenger, cannot be shed except in three cases: in Qisas (equality in punishment) for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (Apostate) and leaves the Muslims.”

Bukhari, volume 9, #37

Narrated Abu Qilaba: Once Umar bin Abdul Aziz sat on his throne in the courtyard of his house so that the people might gather before him….He replied “By Allah, Allah’s messenger never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: 1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) 2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and, 3) a man who fought against Allah and His messenger, and deserted Islam and became an apostate….”

Add to that, Bukhari, volume 9, #57, #58, #64 & #271

Re-capping the above Hadiths:
— A Muslim’s blood can be shed if he ” reverts from Islam (Apostate) and leaves the Muslims.”
— Muhammed killed those who ” fought against Allah and His messenger, and deserted Islam and became an apostate.”

My “misinterpretation”? My Aunt Fanny!

Only a fool, or one playing the fool for Allah’s sake, would believe these verses/excerpts to mean ANYTHING but violence toward those who have the chutzpah to choose to lose Islam.

Time to end the paltering poop by apologists for an anal ideology which is more intrusive than a colonoscopy …resulting not in a prognosis but rather pain for all.

Shalom through strength…
