Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Is ISIS The True Face of Islam? – Part 4

JournalistBeheadMuhammad’s Example

Muslims are to follow the example of their Prophet, Muhammad. Let’s look at what he did and commanded. He is the key to Islam. He is the key to understanding everything about Islam.

To look at Muhammad we will go to the Sira and the Hadith (also called the Sunnah) which are the sayings and actions of the Prophet.

This first quote is from Sirat Rasul page 464:

The the apostle went out to the market of Medina and they dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and he struck off their heads into those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches, tying both their hands to their necks. As they were brought before the Prophet their heads were struck off them and their heads were rolled into the trenches and then their bodies were rolled in as well. This beheading went on until the apostle made an end to them.

This refers to a battle fought in Medina. There were three tribes of Jews and two tribes were expelled and one tribe remained. They were called the Qurayza tribe. They would not submit to Islamic law, they would not bow the knee to Islam. The Prophet goes to war against them. Some have referred to this battle as the battle of trenches. According the the Sirat they were about 600 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. Apparently Muhammad, himself, worked on the digging of the trench into which the massacred Jews were to be thrown.

My question to you is, according to the Sirat, Muhammad did these things. Isn’t that what ISIS is doing?

There is another verse in Sirat Bukhari 143 page 700:


in the war of Kibar, after the inhabitants of the banu Quaryza was surrendered, Allah’s apostle killed all the able adult men, and he, the Prophet, took all the women and children as captives.


Isn’t this also what ISIS is doing? They are killing the men and boys and taking the young women as sex slaves.

This passage also says that Muhammad took a beautiful young Jewish girl as “booty.” He set the example for his followers by taking her as a sex slave.

How can someone say that what the Islamic State is doing is un-Islamic? NO! It is exactly what the Prophet of Islam did.

This President, Mr. Kerry, and all of their minions are propagandizing this nation. They are lying through their teeth. They want to keep us from looking at the real history of Islam.

This is the face of Islam. If it is unchecked ISIS is the face of what lies ahead for the world.

We thank God that we have been given the opportunity to give counter argument and get out the truth.

As I said earlier, we need leaders who have the courage to learn the facts about Islam and get them out to the people. The facts are there for anyone who is willing to look. You don’t have to be a scholar and dig deep into the religious and historical data. We need leaders who will forget political correctness and stand up for the truth.

Let m e say this, the leadership needs to start with the pastors of this nation. Remember, this is a spiritual battle. If our pastors won’t tell their people the truth how can they know who to select as leaders? The idea that we should not speak ill about Islam so we can reach them is the wrong strategy.

Let’s close by looking at Obama’s strategy for dealing with this problem. Word is out that Egypt, which is critical to his strategy, is out because they don’t trust Obama.

Obama is having a hard time putting together a real coalition. Basically the Arab nations are saying its not our fight, its your fight, and secondly, we don’t trust you, Obama. They are also saying that he is incompetent. He has made a mess of things in the Middle East. Who would join a coalition with someone who will get us in the fight and then, on a given date, leave and let us fend for ourselves. This is what Obama did in Iraq and is doing in Afghanistan.

Even Cameron in the UK is having second thoughts because we are not willing to put “boots on the ground.” The reason Obama doesn’t want to do this is that he has to admit that he was wrong. He pulled the troops out too early against the advice of his advisors, he made a mess of things.

President Bush predicted this very thing if we pulled our troops out to early. The longer it takes us to get started in our mission, the worse it will get.

Obama has put out a three year plan to deal with this. Three years? That gives ISIS more time to grow and become more entrenched. Even Democrats are upset with Obama. He has rejected the advice of our military leaders and is going about it his way. It almost seems that he wants to fail.

Kerry said that Egypt is essential to the operation. It is the largest Arab country and it has a good military which we have paid for. Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and he thinks they are going to join him now? Fat chance!

The answer to our question, Is ISIS the true face of Islam, is a resounding YES! All Muslims might not agree with ISIS but the ideology of Islam is on full display in ISIS and what is happening in the Middle East at this time.
