Does Islam command the killing of disbelieving
civilians and captives? A text-debate that took place between me and an
Islamophobe on David Wood's blog.
Also, this is a
38-minute video rebuttal that refutes
Wood's video, which he called "The Three Stages of Jihad"
or "3-Stage Jihad".
I also uploaded the video-rebuttal to my

Allah Almighty sent a Prophet and a Messenger to the Arabs
because they were fresh and had no previous Prophets before.
They also had no corrupt scriptures like the Jews and Christians
had. The pagan Arabs were ready for a new Prophet and a new
Divine Religion. This is why Prophet Muhammad was sent.
He was sent:
1- To move the Arabs and mankind from the worship of idols to
the worship of the True One Living and Sovereign GOD Almighty of the Universe,
and to associate no partners with Him.
2- To restore the original Faith, which is Islam, after the Jews
and Christians had corrupted it and invented their own lies and man-made
conjectures and alterations of scriptures.
after Islam prevailed and ruled over the disbelievers,
Allah Almighty Commanded the Muslims to:
1- Be Just to all of the disbelievers and
all people in general.
2- Show Mercy and Forgiveness to all disbelievers.
3- Show the Love of Allah Almighty to all disbelievers.
I've provided ample Noble Verses from the Glorious Quran that proved this.
And these Noble Verses came AFTER
Islam became victorious over the disbelievers, not before. So after the hostile times ended, Allah Almighty Commanded the Muslims
to go back to the
roots of Islam, which is Justice, Mercy, Kindness, Forgiveness and to show the Love
of Allah Almighty to all:
"O ye who believe! stand out firmly for God, as witnesses
fair dealing, and let not the
hatred of others to you make you
swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next
to piety: and fear God. For God is well-acquainted with all that
ye do. (The Noble Quran, 5:8)"
"God does not forbid you from
showing kindness and dealing
with those who have not fought you about religion and have not
driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers.
ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not
one another in sin and rancour: fear God: for God is strict in
punishment. (The Noble Quran, 5:2)"
"God doth command you to render back your Trusts to those to
whom they are due; And when ye
judge between man and man, that
ye judge with justice: Verily how excellent is the teaching which
giveth you! For God is He Who heareth and seeth all things.
Noble Quran, 4:58)"
"O ye who believe! stand out
firmly for justice, as witnesses
to God, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and
whether it be (against) rich or poor: for God can best protect
both..... (The Noble Quran, 4:135)"
On Islam being "Jew Hating" (David Wood made
people of Moses there is a section who guide and
do justice in the light of truth. (The
Noble Quran, 7:159)"
was We who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance
and light. By its standard have been judged the Jews, by the
prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to God's will, by the rabbis and the
doctors of law: for to
them was entrusted the protection of God's book, and they were witnesses
thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear me, and sell not my signs for a
miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what God hath
revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers.
(The Noble Quran, 5:44)"
"Those who believe (in the Quran),
and those who follow
(scriptures), and the Christians and the
Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall
have their reward with their Lord;
on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
(The Noble Quran, 2:62)"
On Mercy and Forgiveness:
Let's see Islam's Golden Rule and the Noble Verses that deal
with Forgiving and Forgetting the faults of others:
"Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in
adversity; who restrain anger, and
pardon (all) men;- for God loves those who do good;-
(The Noble Quran, 3:134)"
forgiveness; command what is right; But turn away from the
ignorant. (The Noble Quran, 7:199)"
"We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between
them, but for just ends. And the Hour is surely coming (when this will be
manifest). So overlook (any human
faults) with gracious forgiveness.
(The Noble Quran, 15:85)"
"But because of their breach of their covenant, We
cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their
(right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor
wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few - ever bent on (new) deceits:
but forgive them, and overlook
(their misdeeds): for God loveth those who are kind.
(The Noble Quran, 5:13)"
"Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they
could Turn you (people) back to infidelity after ye have believed, from selfish
envy, after the Truth hath become Manifest unto them:
But forgive and overlook,
Till God accomplish His purpose; for God Hath power over all things.
(The Noble Quran, 2:109)"
"Let not those among you who are endued with grace and
amplitude of means resolve by oath against helping their kinsmen, those in want,
and those who have left their homes in God's cause:
let them forgive and overlook,
do you not wish that God should forgive you?
For God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (The
Noble Quran, 24:22)"
those who believe, to forgive those who do not look forward to the Days of God:
It is for Him to recompense (for good or ill) each People according to what they
have earned. (The Noble Quran, 45:14)"
The Love of Allah Almighty:
"They perform (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose
evil flies far and wide. And they
feed, for the love of God,
the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,-
(Saying),"We feed you for the sake of God alone: no reward do we desire from
you, nor thanks. "We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our
Lord." (The Noble Quran, 76:7-10)"
"But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep.
And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?- (It is:) freeing the
bondman; Or the giving of food in a day of privation To the orphan with claims
of relationship, Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. Then will he be of
those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint),
and enjoin deeds of kindness and
compassion. (The Noble Quran,
"It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces
Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in God and the Last
Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers;
to spend of your substance,
out of love for Him,
for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask,
and for the ransom of slaves; to be
steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfil the contracts which
ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and a dversity,
and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the
God-fearing. (The Noble Quran, 2:177)"
"They ask thee what they should spend (In charity).
Say: Whatever ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred and orphans and
those in want and for wayfarers. And whatever ye do that is good,
-God knoweth it well. (The Noble Quran,
render to the kindred their due rights, as (also) to those in want,
and to the wayfarer: But squander not (your wealth) in the manner of
aspendthrift. (The Noble Quran, 17:26)"
On Wife Beating in Islam:
The Glorious Quran commands the beating of the NASHIZ (loose, flirty,
unjustly defiant) wife after the 2nd warning was given to her. After that,
they must sit with elderlies from her side and his to decide on whether the
marriage should continue or not. By the way, the
Arabic word DARABA also means to "leave". It doesn't just mean to
"beat", and I've provided several Noble Verses where the word DARABA was
used for leaving and traveling abroad from the Glorious Quran.
For normal women who fear Allah Almighty and aren't loose or flirty or
unjustly defiant, Allah Almighty and Prophet Muhammad commanded the husbands to:
1- Never beat their wives.
2- Never mistreat or bully their wives.
3- Always speak kind words to their wives.
4- To provide for their wives peace, love and harmony.
This is a very long topic to discuss here. I've provided ample Noble
Verses and Hadiths in the following link:
http://www.answering-christianity.com/beating.htm. I've also proven
from David Wood's Bible that wife-beating is allowed to evil wives.
For all of the points that I discussed earlier, there are many more Noble
Verses that I could provide for all of the points that I discussed above.
The Noble Verses that I displayed in this video were only a select few that I
