The origin of the Islam
After the fall of the Roman empire in the 5th century AD a new empire arose, the Christian Byzantine empire. The Persian and Arab countries hankered for independence from the Christian suppression. This time grow ripe for a new world order against Christianity. Then in 570 AD was born a man in Mecca Saudi Arabia who should be the later founder of the Islam.
Mohammed (or Muhammad 570 - 632 A.D)
Mohammed (literaly "one praised") was born and raised in Mecca in Arabia. Mecca is the home of the Kaaba, or the temple built by Abraham and his son Ishmael to the Lord.
There is much source material on the life of the Prophet Mohammed. The book of revelations that he received from the Archangel Gabriel is know as the Quran. The Quran does not contain the life of Mohammed directly, although there are references made to it by the Archangel, and neither are the words of Mohammed in the Quran, although the Archangel does instruct Mohammed on what to say in various situations. The book of sayings of Mohammed as well as his deeds is known as the Hadith.
Mohammeds life is a dramatic tale of exile from his home town of Mecca, to the nearby town of Medina, after which his followers grew so rapidly that he actually defeated the Meccan armies in numerous battles, later to capture the city of Mecca by force.
Mohammed was a warlike conqueror who did not accept any opposition against the Islamic belief. In several battles against the unbelievers he and his companions murdered whole villages and cities all over the Arabuab peninsula when they refused to accept the new religion.
Thereafter, His empire grew, as he conquered hostile tribes all over Arabia, and ultimately united the Arabian peninsula under His law, which he called Islam (literally "Surrender" to Allah). Mohammed was married, and had at least two children, a daughter Fatima, and a son who died before reaching maturity.
Go to the Quran (English translation).
Another great source of information about Mohammed is the Hadath (or Hadith), which is basically a collection of stories and quotes about Mohammed, what he said and did. The entire Hadath is a very large body of work, as witnessed by the people who lived near the Prophet, including his most intimate followers and his wives.
Some examples that Fundamental Moslems never read the following verses as they are written when they are willing to die as Martyr. Mohammed tells the opposite here :
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (Radhi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa Sallam) say:
1. The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them.
The Almighty will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for you until I died a martyr. He will say: You have lied- you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said.
Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.
2. [Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them.
[The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake. He will say: You have lied- you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a reciter. And so it was said.
3. [Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth.He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them.
[The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. He will say: You have lied- you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said.
It was related by Muslim (also by at-Tirmidhi and an-Nasa'i)
Go to selections from the Hadath (English translation).
The reign of terror by caliph Umar still horrifies the present day Iranians. They dress themselves up in festive clothing on the death anniversary of this caliph, even to this day. Caliph Umar who was also one of the many father-in-laws of Mohammed, attained leadership of Islam two years after Mohammed's death. His reign of terror rocked Iran, Irag, Egypt and Syria. His most dastardly deed was the destruction of the great library in Alexandria. His order to Amir Amron ibn al-Ass (rightly named) is preserved as follows:
"As for the books you mentioned here is my reply. If their content is in accordance with the book of Allah, we may do without them, for in that case the book of Allah more than sufficies. If on the other hand, they contain matter not in accordance with the book of Allah, there can be no need to preserve them. Proceed then and destroy them."
Such brilliance and such logic can only be found in the followers of all merciful Allah.
The 700,000 scrolls, some of them works a thousand or more years old, many on Mathematics, science and philosophy were destroyed. Ibn al-Kifti wrote that, "it took 6 months to burn all that mass of material."
Even amongst the early Muslims, he had a reputation for strict militancy and conformity and was even accused by contemporaries of being harsh in religious matters. On several occasions he even opposed Muhammad when the latter wished to be merciful toward religious and political enemies. Yet Muhammad was reported as saying if there was ever a person with Prophet-like qualities, it was Umar, an attestation to his conscientious, just, and humble disposition
Umar died in 644, the victim of an assassin's dagger. Umar's killer (Abū Lū`lū`ah) was a Persian slave who is said to held a personal grudge against Umar; he stabbed the Caliph six times as Umar led prayers in the Masjid an-Nabawī mosque in Medina and then committed suicide. Umar died two days later, and was buried alongside Muhammad and Abū Bakr. Uthmān ibn Affān was elected as his successor, by a group of prominent Muslims appointed by Umar before his death.
India lost millions of books on Mathematics, Astronomy, Philosophy and other Sciences of the Vedic and Buddhist periods.
in the year 1196 A.D. the eunuch Qutubuddin Aibak destroyed the famous Sanskrit college of Vishaldev in the capital of Gujrat
The famous Buddist university of Nalanda had the same fate in the year 1200 A.D. he attacked the township and massacared the harmless Buddist monks and violated the nuns.
In recent years, the Pakistani Muslim army attacked the then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). 3,000,000 Bengali Hindus were brutally murdered. The first attack was on Dhaka University. The women students were not spared. They were raped and murdered mercilessly.
Until present day the Muslims still destroy remains of other religions (the Buda statues in Afghanistan) and attack nations all over the world (11th September 2001) in the name of Allah.
The western world can blame themselves that the Islam could become such a great religion because they closed their eyes a too long period for the suppression of the Islamic people all over the world. It's not a coincidence that ALL Islamic countries are ruled by dictators.
The prelude to the enmity between Christianity, Buddhism and the Islam arose when the Moslems destroyed the library of Alexandria in Egypt in 642 AD, The Christian crusades in the 11th and 12th century were held and the exclamation of the state Israel in Palestine in 1948 AD. *
* The justification of the foundation of the state of Israel is in my opinion disputable because the Jews had never before in history their own independent country. In ancient times (from 1,000 BC) the Jews lived in Canaan together with other ethnic tribes who were all a province of other nations like Egypt, Assyria and Babylonia. The claim of the Jews for the land of Palestine is NOT based on the history of this area.
As long as the Jews are unwilling to accept an independent Palestinian state the struggles with their neighbors will go on until it will escalate in a War of with the end will be a disaster for the whole area.
Nevertheless, in my opinion is the Fundamental Islam a dangerous and intolerant part of the Islamic religion which MUST be stopped or reformed before the whole world will be brought under their ruthless ideas.
As long as the whole Western World (and also in my country) still tolerate their threats and intolerances there is a chance that we will be thrown back to the Middle Ages again.
The recent murders in several countries (also in my country Holland) are prove that the whole world, including the Moslems themselves are responsible for extermination of this extremism at all costs.
