Just another case of Allah’s rag heads refusing to assimilate. Finally the Airport commission fights back. Look for these “Americans” in the video below to be receiving welfare, food stamps and unemployment which their brother Obama, highly approves.
Let’s not forget that the strict fundamentalists who flew aircraft into the twin towers and the pentagon on 9-11 were strict adherents of the cult as well. Funny thing, before the attack, the hijackers drink alcohol and watched strip shows. How absolutely Qua’ranic!
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
By Mesbahuddin Faruq :
Contrary to popular belief, a Koranic verse of a very revered Sura describes the alcoholic drinks as gifted with “good nourishment”, and or, “wholesome drink”. Naturally, this Koranic verse may inspire a few truth-seekers to trace their memories on the Koran, and relate the journals and news coverage, on the life-enhancing marvels of selective alcoholic drinks.
In reality, the medical researchers, in recent years, have confirmed that the taking of certain red wine in a prescribed limit has been proven to be highly deterrent against heart-attack. The effectiveness of alcohol, in the prevention of infection during oral surgery – and for that matter most surgery is indisputable. Nevertheless, the mullahs, the Imams, as well as those scholars, heavily brain-washed with the corrupted Islamic value based on the Hadith, are adamant in their belief that the Koran prohibits alcohol even as a life saver.
Does the Koran really define alcohol as ‘haram’? Let us examine the source – the Koran, and keep the Hadith not to intervene in this issue.
The characteristics of haram or prohibitions found in the Koran usually begin with the expression “forbidden for you.” In some occasions, it gives a strong warning of hellfire. For instance, about the prohibiton of swine meat, the Koran says:
“Forbidden unto you are carrion and blood and swine-flesh…. (5. Al Ma’ idah: 3).
The Koranic prohibition about murder states:
“Whosoever slayeth a believer of set purpose, his reward is hellfire for ever…” (4. An-Nisa: 93).
There are five major verses in the Koran that deal with the alcoholic drinks. Selecting by their sequential positions in the Koran, the first one contains the most interesting dogma and will be addressed at the end of this topic.
The second verse advises the followers of Islam not to engage in prayers when they are under the influence of alcohol. The Koranic text is:
“O you who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when you are drunken, till you know that which you utter,. ….” (4. An-Nisa: 43).
Obviously, the expression “forbidden for you” is not found anywhere nearby. Nor the threat of ‘hellfire’ is directly or indirectly traceable in the verse. Rather, the deterrence applies to praying under alcoholic influence.
The third verse defines alcoholic drinks as “an infamy of Satan’s handiwork.” and indicates the believer that to succeed in life, it is advisable to stay away from alcoholic drinks. The Koranic text is:
“O you who believe! Strong drink and games of chance and idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that ye may succeed.” (5. Al Ma’ idah: 90).
Strikingly, no word of forbiddance or the fear of hellfire is found here to classify alcohol as ‘haram’. More to the point, the advice: “leave it aside in order that you may succeed” relates to earthy success in life. No doubt, career successes are often impaired and impeded because of the excessive influence of alcohol. Amazingly, the Koran places rightful emphasis on it.
The fourth verse relates to food in general including alcohol, and assures the believers not to be too concerned about consuming food, as long as they do ‘good work’. The phrase ‘good work’ has been emphasized repeatedly. Here again the hellfire and words of forbiddance are missing. The verse states:
“There shall be no sin unto those who believe and do good works for what they may have consumed. So be mindful of your duty and do good works; and again: be mindful of your duty, and believe; and once again: be mindful of your duty, and do right. Allah loveth the good.” (5. Al Ma’ idah :93).
As stated earlier, the fifth verse relates to a significant Sura of the Koran. It describes the alcoholic drinks as gifted with “good nourishment”, and or, “wholesome drink” (16.An Nahl : 67) The Koran, as translated, reads:
“And from the fruit of the palm and the grapes, you get out wholesome drink and food: behold, in this also is a sign for those who are wise (Yusuf Ali).
And of the fruits of the date-palm, and grapes, whence you derive strong drink and good nourishment. Lo! therein is indeed a portent for people who have sense. (Pickthall).
History tells us that the Seljuk warlords were mostly originated in Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan. Towards the collapsing days of the Abbasid dynasty, the Seljuks captured the administration of the Abbasid kingdom. The Abbasid Sultans remained happy only with a yearly allowance and hearing their names mentioned during the “Khutba” of the Friday-prayer.
After analysing the historical sequence of the Abbasid dynasty, some historians are of the opinion that it was the Seljuk generals who chopped-off alcoholic drinks for their soldiers in the battlefield. A few years before the Seljuks, the Buyids systematically had formulated their theological and judicial ideas. And more than ever the ulemas got prominance in functioning as the interpreters of Islamic laws.
The Seljuks, previously exposed to Christianity, were the new converts to Islam. It was a juncture of the time when the dominance of Bukhari’s Hadith was more prevalent than the Koran. After all, when Bukhari insisted that his Hadith was no inferior to the Koran, it was normal for the Seljuks to place more importance on the Hadith – presumed to be the updated Islamic guidance than adhering to the Quran – viewed as old and outdated. The Hadith provided the Seljuks all the ammunition to rule the country in the false pretext of Muhammad’s precedents.
In fact, most Sharia Laws were developed during this Seljuk period of Islam based on the Hadith. The dreadful powers of Fatwa, apostasy, stoning to death, honour killing, Jihad with a reward of 70 virgins in the heaven and many more were enshrined in the Hadith while they were totally absent in the Koran. Obviously it doesn’t leave any room for the researchers to ponder other than to conclude that the prohibition of alcohol too was a strategy of the Seljuks. It was largely the Seljuks that tossed Islam from its original orbit.
It is an irony that the alcoholic drink had been a normal beverage during the time of the prophets prior to Muhammad. Wine was a significant item when Jesus was having his last supper with his twelve disciples. Even one of his miracles involved the making of wine for the guests in a party. In fact, the use of wine could be traced in the Old Testament to all the notable prophets including Moses, David and Solomon. Source.
