Our favourite deceptive Christian missionary returns again. This time claiming that he will prove Mohammed came to “terrorise” non-believers. He starts:
In this article I am going to show that Muhammad was a terrorist who was sent by his god to terrorize and slay all unbelievers unless and until they submitted to his demands and desires.
We shall cast terror (al-rruAAba) into the hearts of those who disbelieve, BECAUSE they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers). And Allah did indeed fulfil His Promise to you when you were killing them (your enemy) with His Permission; until (the moment) you lost your courage and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed after He showed you (of the booty) which you love. Among you are some that desire this world and some that desire the Hereafter. Then He made you flee from them (your enemy), that He might test you. But surely, He forgave you, and Allah is Most Gracious to the believers. S. 3:151-152 Hilali-Khan
He then claims that this “explicitly clear that Muhammed was sent to “terrorize the unbelievers”. From here he quotes Surah 8:12, 8:60 and 33:26 where the word al-rruAAba is used.
Surah 3:151-152 were was revealed in connection with the Quraysh who wanted to murder the Muslims, after they went back half way. They want to return and murder innocent Muslims. Hence, god revealed this verse that he fear (or terror) in Qurayh’s hearts and they did not come back to harm the Muslims.

Surah 8:12, was revealed in connextion to the battle of Badr. This was a war between the powerful Quraysh whom persecuted the Muslims for many years: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/04/29/cast-terror-into-the-hearts-of-the-disbelievers-quran-81-to-812/
Surah 8:60, was revealed in connextion with Banu Qurayza. A tribe that treacheriously broke their treaty, joined the Quraysh fighting against the Muslims: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/04/08/quran-856-61-banu-qurayzah/
33:26 refers to Battle of khandaq where a league of tribes came to Madinah to desroy the Muslims. The Muslims were out numbered. More details here: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/05/13/quran-3315-27-battle-of-khandaq/
And here is a explanation of the word ru’b:https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/04/29/arabic-meaning-for-rub-fear-terror/
Shamoun continues, this time deceptively quoting:
“I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.“
This Hadith was revealed in connextion with Banu Khuza’a and abnu Bakr. The Quraysh and Banu Bakr had a treaty with the Muslims. In this treaty the Quraysh and b. bakr agreed that they would not attack nor start any hostility. It didn’t take long when Quraysh with b. Bakr attacked and murdered members of Banu Khuza’a (a non-Muslim ally of Muhammed). Here they broke the treaty. This led to the conquest of Makkah. This story is examined detail by detail in the following article: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/12/25/the-hadith-fight-until-they-say-there-is-no-god-but-allah-explained/
Shamoun continues, he quotes the Hadith about where Abu Bakr fought against Zakat withholders. These Zakat witholders were not innocent. They did not pay their annual tax yearly and fought against Abu Bakr. Hence Abu Bakr fought them There are more details here: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/10/17/hadith-without-context-is-meaningless-abu-bakrs-apostasy-wars/
Shamoun believes paying tax to the government is somehow bad. I would like to see him try not pay tax in the country he resides in currently. I guarantee him, that the Police will be sent to his house and he will get a 5 star treatment straight to prison. The zakat money was needed in order for the government to finction and pay this moneyin order for the needy and poor be catered for. Without this tax, there would have been a lot of poor and needy who would not have been able catered for.
In light of the foregoing evidence, this missionary is nothing more than a deceptive man butchers quotations from the Quran and Hadith to spread propaganda. Every quote he quoted was misrepresented and twisted.
