Muslims Killing Muslims

Sami Zaatari

 

Recently Christian apologist David Wood released a new blog post, and the blog post is about Al-Qaeda in Iraq slaughtering a group of future Iraqi police officers. The link and video can be viewed here, discretion is advised:

Now without a doubt the video is disturbing, wrong, and should be condemned. The majority of Muslims who view this would be saddened by it, and would certainly not condone it. After all if Muslims supported such acts then you would find Muslims killing police officers in large numbers throughout the Muslim world, yet such is not the case.

Having said all of that, one can show very disturbing videos, and pictures of crimes and murders being committed by Christians and Zionists! Just go search in Iraqi babies and uranium, and just wait for the pictures that come up, and I'm sure most of you have already seen the disgusting imagery and consequences of the wars that have been launched against Iraq, Palestine, and Lebanon! Incidentally many of David's supporters happen to support the state of Israel, saying its God land, and God's chosen people, so they have a right to do what they do! So these are the last people to be pointing fingers at others.

I would like to address a comment and question made by one of his readers, a comment and question which I'm sure many others will be asking:

i sure wud like an answer from osama abdulla and other muslims on this video. lets hear wut false accusation statements they come up with. i saw the video again and it made me sick. but killing is fine according to islam and its people. hey everybody lets all just forget wut happened in the video because truly its not al qaeda's fault. they were just following mohammad and his teaching. as far as how osama abdulla will answer it" those people wearing masks cud be christians and just trying to fool everybody. how dare they put Islam to shame." as a pakistani christian this is 1 of many muslims killing muslims and non muslims videos ive seen. born and raised in Saudi arabia wasnt easy for me and my family. im glad im free in Canada.

 

RESPONSE:

What's interesting about this Q is that the person wants an answer, and then goes on to assume the answer by saying he wants to know what false accusations Muslims will make! Talk about an insincere way of asking a Q, but for the sake of truth I shall tackle the question.

My answer to this incident is that this was WRONG, and the reason it was wrong is not because I think it was wrong, but because Islam SPEAKS AGAINST IT, both the Quran and Hadiths are clear about this issue, hence I give you your answer straight from the Quran, and from the prophet Muhammad:

"And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein; and the Wrath and the Curse of Allaah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him" (4:93)

And from the prophet Muhammad:

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 9:

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:

The Prophet said, "A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden."

 

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 10:

Narrated Abu Musa:

Some people asked Allah's Apostle, "Whose Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?" He replied, "One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands."

 

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 46:

Narrated 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (an evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)."

 

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 30:

Narrated Al-Ahnaf bin Qais:

While I was going to help this man ('Ali Ibn Abi Talib), Abu Bakra met me and asked, "Where are you going?" I replied, "I am going to help that person." He said, "Go back for I have heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'When two Muslims fight (meet) each other with their swords, both the murderer as well as the murdered will go to the Hell-fire.' I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! It is all right for the murderer but what about the murdered one?' Allah's Apostle replied, "He surely had the intention to kill his companion."

So Islam is quite clear, Muslims are forbidden from killing other Muslims, and according to Islam a Muslim who kills another Muslim will go to hell, as has committed an evil crime, and has committed and act of disbelief, hence how clearer can it get?

So there is you answer Mr. Simon, and there is the Islamic response to this video, straight from the Quran and Sunnah.

And Allah Knows Best!
