Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Islam, Culture of Death – Part 1

Christian Genocide

You have been hearing about the genocide of Christian and other religious groups. The common denominator between all this is the religion of Islam. We want to talk about where Muslims get the motivation to do this. It comes right out of the Scriptures of Islam and it follows the teaching and example of their Prophet, Muhammad.

My co-host on our Saturday broadcast, Shahram, is from Iran and he lost some of his cousins because they followed this teaching of Islam. Last week he shared some of this in his testimony.

It is difficult for us in the west to understand, but Islam equals death. The name, Islam, means submission, submission to Allah. The submission is to die for the cause of Allah. This is the highest goal of Muslim men if they are true to Islam’s teachings.

As Shahram and I travel and talk to Christians and Americans in general, the idea that Islam is a culture of death and the real problem is Islam is the hardest thing to get them to understand and accept. All of the jihadi groups say that their highest goal, not a goal, but their highest goal, is to die for the sake of Allah.

This week the news has been full of the genocide that is going in, especially in Iraq, but around the world where ever Islam is prominent. We use the word “genocide” very carefully, but that is exactly what it is.

The following was not on our broadcast because it happened after the broadcast was recorded. President Obama announced that the rescue effort to save the religious minorities was canceled because the problem was over. Just the next day Islamic State insurgents “massacred” some 80 members of Iraq’s Yazidi minority in a village in the country’s north. Doesn’t sound like the genocide is over, does it?

This genocide at the hand of ISIS is not just a side effect of the war. They are actually hunting down Christians for the express purpose of killing them. They are not only beheading men and women, they are now beheading children. This is one of the most perverse things you can imagine. The horrors of Hitler’s reign pale along side of what ISIS is doing.

We see in the news what is going on between Israel and Hamas. Hamas targets women and children in their attacks on Israel and uses women and children as human shields to protect their rocket launchers and storage places. In spite of the fact that Hamas is the aggressor in this conflict, and in spite of their deliberate attempts to kill innocent women and children, we see pro-Hamas demonstrations throughout Europe and North America.

What is the Common Denominator?

Again, what is the common denominator in all of these atrocities? It is Islam, not radical Islam, but Islam. This is not terrorism, it is jihad. This is the example set by the Prophet of Islam. Everything we are seeing, Muhammad did. Everything we are seeing, Muhammad advocated and commanded.

It is sickening to see the Islamic apologists trying to tell us that this is not the true Islam. This has been the way of Islam from its foundation. The world seems to be waking up to the truth that this is the true Islam. I hope it is true because we have been saying for years that the world has to wake up to the true nature of Islam.

The goal of Islam is to establish Dar Al Islam (the house of Islam) in every nation across the whole world. They will tear down everything to do so.

We have been hearing a lot about the Yazidis, a minority religious sect in Iraq. They are a splinter group of the Zoroastrian Faith. They have been around since Old Testament times. Here is a quote from Bill Warner “Islam is an equal opportunity slayer.” If it is outside of Islam, Islam has declared war against it. This means you and me because we are the Kufar, and are part of Dar al Harb, the house of war. Kufar is the Arabic word meaning non-believer. In Islam it means anyone who doesn’t believe in the god of Islam, Allah. A Muslim who is following the teachings of Islam will hate and fight non-Muslims, not as something personal, but because he is commanded to by the teachings of Islam.

Some may be saying, “but I know some very nice and peaceful Muslims.” It is true that there are some peaceful and moderate Muslims, but they are not true Muslims. They may have been born Muslim but they are not following the teachings of Islam. I repeat myself by saying this, but there are moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as moderate Islam.

When we come across “moderate” Muslims there are two possibilities. The first is they are not following Islam. The second is that they are lying because they are in Dar al Harb (the house of war). Muslims are permitted to lie when they are in Dar al Harb.

We can’t evaluate Islam by what we may see in a Muslim acquaintance because many Muslims are on Muslims because they were born into a Muslim family and they really know very little about Islam. We need to remember that Islam is the teaching from the example of their prophet that death in the cause of Allah is their highest goal. They are willing to be martyred because it is the only guarantee they have of going to Paradise.

You will remember that last week we talked about the seven blessings promised to those who in jihad. The sixth blessing is th seventy-two virgins and blessing number seven is that martyrs get to intercede for seventy of their family members. These blessings explain why so many Muslims are willing to die in jihad. Muhammad invented these blessings to encourage young men to join up with him. They were promised that they would have their sexual fantasies fulfilled in Paradise forever and the would get entrance into Paradise for seventy of their family members.

The teachings on the seven blessings come from the Hadith. The Hadith are the words and actions of the Protestant Muhammad. The Qur’an is the words of Allah. To a Muslim the two carry equal authority.

The martyr (shaheed) has seven blessings from Allaah: he is forgiven from the moment his blood is first shed; he will be shown his place in Paradise; he will be spared the trial of the grave; and he will be secure on the Day of the Greatest Terror (the Day of Judgement); there will be placed on his head a crown of dignity, one ruby of which is better than this world and all that is in it; he will be married to seventy-two of al-hoor al-‘iyn; and he will be permitted to intercede for seventy of his relatives.”

Although this comes from one of the questionable Hadith, it has been taught as true by Muslim scholars for centuries. Even Ibn Kathir, the Matthew Henry of Muslim scholars lent his authority to this teaching.

Ibn Kathir – on Hadith 2687

Narrated from Abu Sa’id al-Khudhri, (Sahaba = Companion / Disciple of Muhammad) who heard Muhammad saying, ‘The smallest reward for the people of Heaven is an abode where there are eighty thousand servants and seventy-two houri, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls….

When you see these teachings it is not hard to understand why you see Muslim mothers rejoicing in the streets after their children blow themselves up on a bus killing Jews. They are sure that their child will intercede for them and guarantee their entrance into Paradise. They will even invite their friends over to their house for a party celebrating their son dying as a martyr.
