“Man In Court For Telling Convert Step-Father To ‘Go And Eat Bacon'”

 

The Courier reports on the trial of a man who abused his Muslim convert stepfather via a social media messaging system telling him to “go and eat bacon”. 

Dean McAndrew, 28, pleaded guilty to using a public communications network to send grossly offensive or indecent, obscene or menacing messages with racially and religiously offensive content to Christopher McAndrew and threatening him with violence, on December 6, 2016 when he appeared before Forfar Sheriff Court this week.

The court heard Dean McAndrew, from Dundee, contacted his stepfather, Christopher McAndrew, from Arbroath, via Facebook’s messaging system and engaged in a “religiously and racially offensive” tirade.

The court was told Christopher McAndrew was in the process of converting to Islam and had completed paperwork to change his name. Mr McAndrew senior was “giving advice” to the defendant on 5 November, the day before the incident.

On the evening of 6 November, Dean McAndrew contacted his stepfather using Messenger telling him to “go and eat some bacon”. The court heard the defendant also described the victim as “black” and “used an obscenity”. 

Depute fiscal Jill Drummond, prosecuting, was reading out the list of messages sent by the defendant when Sheriff Gregor Murray interjected and said he would require reports to be presented to the court before sentencing McAndrew.

Sheriff Murray noted Dean McAndrew was a first time offender but told him, “that does not stop me from thinking this is serious, from the charge and what I’ve just heard.”

He said: “I’m going to defer sentence on you for a report from the criminal justice social work department.”

Sentence was deferred until February 9 and McAndrew was granted bail on condition that he does not approach or attempt to approach his stepfather.

The Prophet Of Peace And Love Part 3

Here are the first two articles which we have responded too some lies about the Quran and hadith:

Part 1: https://discoverthetruefacts.wordpress.com/2016/12/29/the-prophet-of-peace-and-love-part-1/

Part 2: https://discoverthetruefacts.wordpress.com/2016/12/29/the-prophet-of-peace-and-love-part-2/

This is the third piece in response to a notorious missionary that is known to follow his Lord and Saviour Paul who commands him deceive and lie to non-Christians in order to make Christianity prevail (yes be deception), Paul is quoted as saying:

“Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. TO THE JEWS I BECAME LIKE A JEW, TO WIN THE JEWS. TO THOSE UNDER THE LAW I BECAME LIKE ONE UNDER THE LAW (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” – 1 Corinthians 9:19-23

Loyal D. Rue who is a Professor of religion and Philosophy at Luther college writes:

“In the CHRISTIAN TRADITION THERE IS VERY EARLY PRECEDENT FOR THE USE OF DECEPTIVE MEANS FOR EVANGELISTIC PURPOSES. ST. PAUL HIMSELF MAKES A REMARKABLE ADMISSION OF HIS CHAMELEON-LIKE BEHAVIOUR IN THE WINNING CONVERTS. Like the consummate used-car salesman, Paul pretends to share the concerns of his immediate audience in order to manipulate them into submitting to his Gospel: “Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.” (By the Grace of Guile: The Role of Deception in Natural History and Human Affairs [Copyright 1994] By Loyal D. Rue page 243-244)

And the early Church fathers believed that deception is a good thing to win over converts using St Paul’s words:

Clement of Alexandria while praising the Christian who would not lie even in the face of torture or death makes an exceptionfor ‘therapeutic’ lies, alluding to St. Paul’s dissimulations in Acts 16:3 and 1 Corinthians 9:20 (Clement of Alexandria, Stromata, 7.9.53).” (Responding to Terrorism: Political Philosophical and Legal Perspectives By Robert Imre, Professor T. Brian Mooney, Benjamin Clarke page 76)

Shamoun’s LORD and saviour Paul, here admits to confessing that he acted as a Jew to in order to convert them to Christianity deceptively. He also acted like a pagan in order to win over the pagans to Christianity, with deception. This is no surprise then that Shamoun is following in the footsteps of his Lord and Saviour Paul who orders to spreads lies and deception to win over non-Christians to Christianity. More information on Paul here: https://discover-the-truth.com/2013/11/28/1-corinthians-9-apostle-pauls-missionary-deception-taqiyya/

Let’s now address some of the claims Shamoun makes. He quotes the Hadith I have been commanded to fight the people (idolaters) until they say there is no god but God.

He claims the command of this Hadith also included Christians and Jews. He provides Quran 9:28-33 to substantiate his claims. Quran 9:28-33 in regards to some Jews who regarded Ezra as the Son of God in its literal meaning. This verse of the Quran was never understood to mean that all Jews are idolaters. All the scholars from earliest of days have acknowledged that Jews are Monotheistic: https://discover-the-truth.com/2015/01/01/ezra-uzayr-the-son-of-god/

Surah 9:28 was in regards to the polytheists of Quraysh.

Surah 9:29 referred to some Christians who did not believe in God’s judgement and went against it. Scholar Zakaria Bashier has an excellent article on this matter: https://discover-the-truth.com/2014/11/02/revisiting-quran-929-tabuk/

One thing this missionary leaves out is, he has NO scholar backing his claims. All scholars of the first few centuries of Islam all agreed that the Hadith was in regards to polytheist Quraysh who broke their treaty and waged war against Muhammed and his non-Muslim ally, the Banu Khuza’a. This hadith was addressed in the first two pieces. Here is a detailed article on the quotation, please see the link: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/12/25/the-hadith-fight-until-they-say-there-is-no-god-but-allah-explained/

Shamoun continues,

“This explains why Muhammad had both the Jews and Christians expelled from the Hijaz or the Arabian Peninsula”

Muhammed never expelled no Jew or Christians in his life-time from Hijaz. Years later, when the Prophet died, Umar Ibn al-Khattab who was third Caliph expelled some Jews who attacked and murdered Muslims. They had at the time had a treaty with the Muslims, they broke it, and those guilty were expelled or dealt with in the court of law. There is a lot more detail in the following article: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/01/10/did-jews-get-expelled-from-arabia/

And: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/07/06/holy-ground-jews-and-christians-expelled-from-arabia/

As for the Christians, some were expelled due to them breaking a treaty for doing usury (ribah). Which was against the law. Both of these incidents had NOTHING to do with Muhammed, but by Umar Ibn al-Khattab a decade after Muhammed’s demise these incidents took place. Scholar Arthur Stanley Tritton provides many evidences even after this incident many Christians and Jews lived in Hijaz: https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/07/06/holy-ground-jews-and-christians-expelled-from-arabia/

Furthermore the command in Surah 9:29 was in connection to Byzantine king’S army who had mobilised in order to attack and murder the Muslim community, 1300 years ago. Many early historical sources confirm this. https://discover-the-truth.com/2016/03/28/answering-jihad-fight-against-those-who-do-not-believe-quran-929/

Our thorough analysis showed that Muhammed was a man of peace and love. He was sent to preach the Message of Islam by persuasion. Those he fought were done so as a result of them waging war against him and his people. He had no choice but to defend himself, Muslims and the non-Muslim community from harm.

The Prophet Of Peace And Love Part 1

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.
THE QURAN
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. Full commentary here:https://discover-the-truth.com/2014/08/22/quran-3151-soon-shall-we-cast-terror-into-the-hearts-of-the-unbelievers/

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.

Revisiting Lihaaf (Blanket) – Response To Shameless Missionary

We responded to the shameless missionary on thawb not long ago, this sick lunatic man gets orgasm out of bashing other faiths online.

He has written another sham piece, this time claiming:

The readers should immediately spot the deception and dishonesty of this neophyte. The Arabic word can and does refer to clothing/wrapping/dressing/robing oneself in clothes, such as a cloak or a garment. On what basis then does this Muhammadan choose “blanket” as the definition of the term, when there is absolutely nothing in the context of the hadiths to suggest that this is what Muhammad meant?

Readers should be aware, we showed reputable scholars who stated that the revelation came to Muhammed under Ayesha’s blanket. We showed three reports:

“It was narrated that ‘Aishah said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘O Umm Salamah, do not bother me about ‘Aishah, for by Allah, the Revelation has never come to me under the BLANKET (LIHAAF) of any of you apart from her.’” (Sunan an-Nasa’i volume 4, Book 36, Hadith 3401, Sahih Darussalam)

And:

“It was narrated from Umm Salamah that the wives of the Prophet asked her to speak to the Prophet and tell him, that the people were trying to bring their gifts to him when it was ‘Aishah’s day, and to say to him: “We love good things as much as ‘Aishah does.” So she spoke to him, but he did not reply her. When her turn came again, she spoke to him again, but he did not reply her. They said to her: “How did he respond?” She said: “He did not answer me.” They said: “Do not leave him alone until he answers you or you comprehend what he says.” When her turn came again, she spoke to him and he said: ‘Do not bother me about ‘Aishah, for the Revelation has never come to me under the BLANKET (LIHAAF) of any of you apart from the blanket of ‘Aishah.’” (Sunan an-Nasa’i volume 4, Book 36, Hadith 3402, Sahih Darussalam)

And a third Hadith (report):

“Narrated ‘Aishah: “The people used to give their gifts [to the Prophet on ‘Aishah’s day.” She said: “So my companions gathered with Umm Salamah and they said ‘O Umm Salamah! The people give their gifts on ‘Aishah’s day, and we desire good as ‘Aishah desires, so tell the Messenger of Allah to order the people to give (their gifts to) him no matter where he is.’ So Umm Salamah said that, and he turned away from her. Then he turned back to her and she repeated the words saying: ‘O Messenger of Allah! My companions have mentioned that the people give their gifts on ‘Aishah’s day, so order the people to give them no matter where you are.’ So upon the third time she said that, he said: ‘O Umm Salamah! Do not bother me about ‘Aishah! For Revelation has not been sent down upon me while I was under the BLANKETS (lihaaf) of a woman among you other than her.’”. (English Translation of Jami At-Tirmidhi, compiled by: Imam Hafiz Abu Eisa Mohammad Ibn Eisa At-Tirmidhi [Translated by: Abu Khaliyl (USA), Ahadith edited and referenced by: Hafiz Abu Tahir Zubair Ali Za’I, Final review by: Islamic Research Section Darussalam, Maktaba Dar-us-salam, 2007], volume 6, page 492 – 493 ( Book 46. Chapters on Al-Manaqib [Chapters On Virtues] Chapter 62. About The Virtue of Aishah. Hadith No. 3879))

Here is a screenshot for the above quote from the book itself (click to enlarge image):

shamun1

The above quotes were translated by renowned and respectable scholars who have studied this field many decades.

We also provided Arabic English Lexicons who also agreed that lihaaf means a sheet or a blanket:

English-Arabic Dictionary – Professor Francis Joseph Steingass:

BLANKET, s. لِحَافِ lahaf; لِحَافِ LIHAF (pl. … luhuf). (Professor Francis Joseph Steingass, English-Arabic Dictionary: For the Use of Both Travellers and Students (1882) page 38)

A Dictionary of Modern written Arabic – Hans Wehr:

“لِحَافِ LIHAF pl … luhuf (also … alhifa) cover, BLANKET; bedcover, counterpane, coverlet, quilt, comforter; wrap.”(Hans Wehr A Dictionary of Modern written Arabic [Edited by John Milton third edition], page 860)

Al-Mawrid – Dr. Rohi Baalbaki:

“to COVER, wrap … لِحَافِ “ (Al-Mawrid, Modern Arabic-English dictionary, by Rohi Baalbaki, Lebanon (1995) page 917)

Arabic-English vocabulary for the use of English students of modern Egyptian Arabic, compiled – Donald Cameron:

“لِحَافِ LIHAF, BED-SHEET, wrapper.” (Arabic-English vocabulary for the use of English students of modern Egyptian Arabic, compiled by Donald Cameron (1892) page 243)

Arabic-English vocabulary of the colloquial Arabic of Egypt – Socrates Spiro:

“لِحَافِ lahaf, bed quilt, cotton BLANKET, pl. … alhifa, or … lihafat” (Arabic-English vocabulary of the colloquial Arabic of Egypt, containing the vernacular idioms and expressions, slang phrases, etc… used by the native Egyptians, compiled by Socrates Spiro (1895) page 536)

What does the missionary claim after the overwhelming evidence in his face? The shameless individual writes:

On what basis then does this Muhammadan choose “blanket” as the definition of the term, when there is absolutely nothing in the context of the hadiths to suggest that this is what Muhammad meant?

On the basis that the scholars who translated the Hadith, refute your lying position. The translators of the Hadith AND dictionaries agreed that lihaaf means blankets. AND, this tells us with the evidence that thawb (thobe) in the Hadith you used here means blanket as well.

Are we going to have to listen to a guy who has 0% knowledge of the Arabic language? So all scholars who have translated the hadith are all wrong and are ignorant of Arabic language. Here is someone who degrades scholars who have knowledge of the Arabic language for decades. Here is a simple challenge to our readers, to get this all out-of-the-way, copy this Arabic word lihaaf in the brackets (لِحَافِ) and put it in google images and you will get sheets and blankets in bedrooms of houses. Actually, I will make it easier, just click on this link here (لِحَافِ). What do you see? As I said all along, blankets or sheets in bedrooms.
https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%D9%84%D9%90%D8%AD%D9%8E%D8%A7%D9%81%D9%90&biw=1366&bih=662&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwifte_p9rrQAhVHFMAKHcCyAWIQ_AUIBigB#imgrc=LMacN84sEEdvmM%3A

This evidence presented here should make everyone wary of deceptive missionaries like this guy. I don’t blame him, his Lord and saviour Paul commands Christians like him to lie and deceive non-Christians to further their faith:

“Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. TO THE JEWS I BECAME LIKE A JEW, TO WIN THE JEWS. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), SO AS TO WIN THOSE UNDER THE LAW. To those not having the law I BECAME LIKE ONE NOT HAVING THE LAW (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” – 1 Corinthians 9:19-23

Turning Tables

Gospel of Phillip tell us Jesus had a girlfriend and often kissed Mary Magdalene:

“There were three who always walked with the Lord: Mary, his mother, and her sister, and MAGDALENE, THE ONE WHO WAS CALLED HIS COMPANION. His sister and his mother and his companion were each a Mary. … As for the Wisdom who is called “the barren,” she is the mother of the angels. And the companion of the […] MARY MAGDALENE. […] LOVED HER MORE THAN ALL THE DISCIPLES, AND USED TO KISS HER OFTEN ON HER MOUTH. The rest of the disciples […]. They said to him “Why do you love her more than all of us?” THE SAVIOR ANSWERED AND SAID TO THEM,”WHY DO I NOT LOVE YOU LIKE HER? When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes, then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness.” (The Gospel According to Philip (Translated by Wesley W. Isenberg), online source http://gnosis.org/naghamm/gop.html )

Although the above story is apocryphal (sacred writing only read by church fathers), the New Testament attests that Jesus had sexual relations with the prostitute Mary Magdalene:

Berean Literal Bible “Jesus says to her, “DO NOT TOUCH (HAPTOMAI) ME, FOR NOT YET HAVE I ASCENDED TO THE FATHER. Now go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” – John 20:17

Jesus words “do not touch me” or “touch me not” are very difficult to interpret according to Biblical scholars. They state that nowhere else in the Gospels has Jesus prohibited anyone from touching him, except in the above passage under the lens. The Gospel of Matthew clearly reports that the women held on to him and was touched:

Young’s Literal Translation
“and as they were going to tell to his disciples, then lo, Jesus met them, saying, ‘Hail!’ and they having come near, LAID HOLD OF HIS FEET, and did bow to him.” – Matthew 28:9

Jesus also invited all his disciples to touch him in the following instance:

New International Version
“Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! TOUCH ME AND SEE; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.” – Luke 24:39

Since it is clear that Jesus allowed himself to be touched by his people and other people, what reason did it give him not to allow Mary Mahdalene to touch him on this occasion. This is a very easy answer, we we read Greek word closer, we get to find out that in this instance the word is meant sexually (John 20:17).

The following Greek Lexicons (Dictionaries) tell us that he was touched sexually:

Greek-English Lexicon – Henry George Liddell:

“hapto, fut. …: aor. …: – Pass., pf. …, Ion. … Hdt. I. 86 (v. sub …): fut. … Galen. :-Med., fut. …: aor. … (The … appears in …, …) To fasten or bind to, used by Hom.

(Dean Of Rochester, Late Master Of Balliol College, Oxford) [Seventh edition, revised and augmented throughout with the cooperation of Professor drissler, of Columbia College, New York – NEW YORK: Harper & Brothers, Franklin Square, 1883], page 209)

A Manual Greek Lexicon Of The New Testament – G. Abbott-Smith:

Andover: Gould And Newman, Printers, 1836] by Edward Robinson, D. D. (Late Prof. Extraord. Of Sac. Lit. In The Theol. Sem. Andover.), page 94)

We get a clear picture here that Jesus was touched sexually. Was this prohibition permanent against Magdalene? The answer is NO. When we read the verse a bit closer we get know that Jesus had no problem with her touching him sexually at a latter date. Pay close attention to “yet”:

Berean Literal Bible “Jesus says to her, “DO NOT TOUCH (HAPTOMAI) ME, FOR NOT YET HAVE I ASCENDED TO THE FATHER. Now go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” – John 20:17

With the above in perspective, we know for sure Jesus had a very close relationship with Mary Magdalene. So close, that they often touched each other sexually.

There shouldn’t be an issue with Jesus having a sexual relations and Mary Magdalene being his girlfriend. People have to remember that he was god who came in flesh to live along humans. He suffered hunger, ate, went to the toilet etc.

The question arises to missionaries like Shamoun, why should I follow your faux god man in flesh who had sexual relations with a woman who he did not marry?

For a more academic detail on Jesus having a girlfriend and often kissing the prostitute Magdalene, see here:

Revisiting Cross Dressing Lie – Aisha’s Thawb, Thobe, Thawb

Revisiting Cross Dress Lie – Aisha’s Thawb, Thobe, Thawb Blanket

Our favourite notorious missionary is back, this time round peddling the lie that Muhammed used to cross dress, as he claims.

In this we will uncover some of the deceptions and lies this missionaries goes to, to peddle his faux Christian faith.

His missionary friends translate report for him to peddle his lies:

… So Um Salamah went and talked with the prophet but he did not respond to her. When the group asked her what the prophet said she told them that he did not respond. So they asked her to go talk to him again until he responds… then the prophet said to her, “Do not hurt me with Aisha, for the inspiration did not come upon me when I was IN A WOMAN’S GARMENT (fee thawb imra’ah) EXCEPT THAT OF AISHA.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith Number 2393)

And he says:

“The above narration clearly specifies that Muhammad was wearing a WOMAN’s thawb or dress, specifically the garment of his child bride.”

Here it gets interesting readers, the actual report which is translated from renowned scholars states:

“2581. Narrated Urwa that Aishah said: The wives of Allah’s Messenger were in two groups. “Urwa added: One group consisted of Aishah, Hafsa, Safiyya and Sauda; and the other group consisted of Umm Salama and the other wives of Allah’s Messenger. The Muslims knew that Allah’s Messenger loved Aishah, so if any of them had a gift and wished to give to Allah’s Messenger, he would delay it till Allah’s Messenger had come to Aishah’s home and then he would send his gift to Allah’s Messenger in her home.
The group of Umm Salama discussed the matter together and decided that Umm Salama should request Allah’s Messenger to tell the people to send their gifts to him in whatever wife’s house he was.
Umm Salama told Allah’s Messenger of what they had said, but he did not reply. Then they (those wives) asked Umm Salama about it. She said, ‘He did not anything to me.’ They asked her to talk to him again. She talked to him again when she met him on her day, but he gave no reply. When they asked her, she replied that he had given no reply. They said to her, ‘Talk to him till he gives you a reply.’
When it was her turn, she talked to him again. He then said to her, ‘DO NOT HURT ME REGARDING AISHAH, AS THE DIVINE REVELATIONS DO NOT COME TO ME ON ANY OF THE BEDS EXCEPT THAT OF AISHAH.’ On that Umm Salama said, ‘I repent to Allah for hurting you.’ Then the group of Umm Salama called Fatima, the daughter of Allah’s Messenger and sent her to Allah’s Messenger to say to him, ‘ Your wives request to treat them and the daughter of Abu Bakr on equal terms.’
Then Fatima conveyed the message to him. The Prophet said, ‘O my daughter! Don’t you love whom I love?’ She replied in the affirmative and returned and told them of the situation. They requested her to go to him again, but she refused. They then sent Zainab bint Jahsh who went to him and used harsh words saying, ‘Your wives request you to treat them and the daughter of Ibn Abu Quhafa on equal terms.’ On that she raised her voice and turned to Aishah who was sitting and insulted her so much so that Allah’s Messenger looked at Aishah to see whether she would retort. Aishah started replying to Zainab till she silenced her. The Prophet then looked at Aishah and said, ‘She is really the daughter of Abu Bakr.’” (The Translation Of the Meanings Of Sahih Al-Bukhari, Arabic English, Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan (Formerly Director, University Hospital, Islamic University, Al-Madina Al-Munawwara) [Darussalam Publishers and Distributors, Riyadh – Saudi Arabia, Maktaba Dar-us-Salam, 1997], volume 3, page 434 – 436 (Book 51 – The Book Of Gifts, No. 2581))

So what proof do we have that what the Prophet was using was a blanket or sheet, and not clothing? The following Hadith reports on this very same incident clearly tells us that the Prophet used to get revelation under Ayesha’s blanket:

“It was narrated that ‘Aishah said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘O Umm Salamah, do not bother me about ‘Aishah, for by Allah, the Revelation has never come to me under the BLANKET (lihaaf) of any of you apart from her.’” (Sunan an-Nasa’i volume 4, Book 36, Hadith 3401, Sahih Darussalam)

And:

“It was narrated from Umm Salamah that the wives of the Prophet asked her to speak to the Prophet and tell him, that the people were trying to bring their gifts to him when it was ‘Aishah’s day, and to say to him: “We love good things as much as ‘Aishah does.” So she spoke to him, but he did not reply her. When her turn came again, she spoke to him again, but he did not reply her. They said to her: “How did he respond?” She said: “He did not answer me.” They said: “Do not leave him alone until he answers you or you comprehend what he says.” When her turn came again, she spoke to him and he said: ‘Do not bother me about ‘Aishah, for the Revelation has never come to me under the BLANKET (lihaaf) of any of you apart from the blanket of ‘Aishah.’” (Sunan an-Nasa’i volume 4, Book 36, Hadith 3402, Sahih Darussalam)

And the third report:

“Narrated ‘Aishah: “The people used to give their gifts [to the Prophet on ‘Aishah’s day.” She said: “So my companions gathered with Umm Salamah and they said ‘O Umm Salamah! The people give their gifts on ‘Aishah’s day, and we desire good as ‘Aishah desires, so tell the Messenger of Allah to order the people to give (their gifts to) him no matter where he is.’ So Umm Salamah said that, and he turned away from her. Then he turned back to her and she repeated the words saying: ‘O Messenger of Allah! My companions have mentioned that the people give their gifts on ‘Aishah’s day, so order the people to give them no matter where you are.’ So upon the third time she said that, he said: ‘O Umm Salamah! Do not bother me about ‘Aishah! For Revelation has not been sent down upon me while I was under the BLANKETS (lihaaf) of a woman among you other than her.’”. (English Translation of Jami At-Tirmidhi, compiled by: Imam Hafiz Abu Eisa Mohammad Ibn Eisa At-Tirmidhi [Translated by: Abu Khaliyl (USA), Ahadith edited and referenced by: Hafiz Abu Tahir Zubair Ali Za’I, Final review by: Islamic Research Section Darussalam, Maktaba Dar-us-salam, 2007], volume 6, page 492 – 493 ( Book 46. Chapters on Al-Manaqib [Chapters On Virtues] Chapter 62. About The Virtue of Aishah. Hadith No. 3879))

So here we get a good picture that the report the missionary quoted as meaning “clothes (garments) is a lie as the above clearly clarify that it was a blanket. But let’s us not just stop here.

In-fact, Arabic-English dictionaries further state that report’s words being Lihaaf means a “blanket” or “sheet” and nothing else:

English-Arabic Dictionary – Professor Francis Joseph Steingass:

BLANKET, s. لِحَافِ lahaf; لِحَافِ LIHAF (pl. … luhuf). (Professor Francis Joseph Steingass, English-Arabic Dictionary: For the Use of Both Travellers and Students (1882) page 38)

A Dictionary of Modern written Arabic – Hans Wehr:

“لِحَافِ LIHAF pl … luhuf (also … alhifa) cover, BLANKET; bedcover, counterpane, coverlet, quilt, comforter; wrap.”(Hans Wehr A Dictionary of Modern written Arabic [Edited by John Milton third edition], page 860)

Al-Mawrid – Dr. Rohi Baalbaki:

“to COVER, wrap … لِحَافِ “ (Al-Mawrid, Modern Arabic-English dictionary, by Rohi Baalbaki, Lebanon (1995) page 917)

Arabic-English vocabulary for the use of English students of modern Egyptian Arabic, compiled – Donald Cameron:

“لِحَافِ LIHAF, BED-SHEET, wrapper.” (Arabic-English vocabulary for the use of English students of modern Egyptian Arabic, compiled by Donald Cameron (1892) page 243)

Arabic-English vocabulary of the colloquial Arabic of Egypt – Socrates Spiro:

“لِحَافِ lahaf, bed quilt, cotton BLANKET, pl. … alhifa, or … lihafat” (Arabic-English vocabulary of the colloquial Arabic of Egypt, containing the vernacular idioms and expressions, slang phrases, etc… used by the native Egyptians, compiled by Socrates Spiro (1895) page 536)

The evidence here couldn’t get any more clearer that the Prophet used to get revelation under the blanket or sheet of Aisha. Furthermore, one of the reasons discover-the-truth.com used/highlighted the dictionaires to show that the first Hadith is speaking about blanket (thawb), sheet or a piece of cloth, this was as a result of the overwhelming evidence shown in the above three reports speaking on the very same incident i.e., lihaaf. As shown, even the Arabic lexicons (dictionaries) all agreed that lihaaf the Prophet had was a blanket. Therefore, the missionary’s claims that the first Hadith on thawb he quoted only means garment and nothing else is a lie and he is being disingenuous. The three reports on lihaaf unquestionably buried his lies.

Conclusion:

This evidence presented is very clear. What the Prophet Muhammed (p) used was an actual blanket or sheet. Whatever missionaries have being peddling on the impeccable character of Prophet Muhammed, is nothing more than lies and fabrications to demean him.

Given that this missionary spoke about child-bride, please see the following articles in the Bible, where Jesus who is god of the Old Testament endorsed/allowed child marriages:

Don’t Be Duped By Missionary Claims On “Weak Hadith”

For the past few days I have been exposing the fraud, Shamoun for what he is. Throughout the responses I showed readers how he deceptively quotes and misquotes sources, and even adds weak/fraudulent sources to his article.

See the following on the responses made to this fraud missionary:

In his latest attempt to save face, he claims:

“Muslims will often pull out the “weak hadith” card in order to avoid having to deal with any incriminating evidence that exposes Muhammad for the charlatan that he was.”

Muslims have always rejected weak Hadith, especially if it comes to dealing with the Prophet’s life or relate to Islamic rulings. The only time weak Hadith has been accepted is if it relates to good deeds or encouragement of good. For example, if a Hadith or any report even if it does NOT have a chain states, “be good to your parents”, or “help other humans”, even if these sayings are deemed weak, it is accepted since it encourages good in the society. However, if a Hadith speaks about the Prophet’s life i.e., claiming that Muhammed did this or commanded this and the report does not go pass to the grade Hasan or Sahih and is deemed “weak”, then all scholars are in agreement that such would be rejected.

Shamoun, in this piece tries to argue that “weak” Hadith are accepted and uses the following article which can be accessed here: “Validity Of Weak Hadith” http://www.livingislam.org/n/vwh_e.html

The above is correct, as I said initially, when it comes to good deeds or encouragement of good scholars have had no problem accepting weak Hadith.

What you are saying though, Shamoun here is demanding for Muslims to accept weak or rejected Hadith pertaining to the Prophet’s life that are unanimously rejected. These are TWO different matters. Furthermore, if you claim that weak Hadith are accepted as pertaining to the Prophet’s character/commands/rules or incident in his life, then why did scholars grade Hadith, in categories of “weak/da’if”, “Hasan/good”, “/authentic/Sahih” and “Mutawatir”, since you’re the expert and claim that everything is accepted so what was the point of these categories if they were all accepted?

You see readers, he was exposed in last piece for bringing a report that is rejected. Not only that, Scholars agreed that NO ONE is allowed to narrate from the man i.e., he was not trustworthy/liar. Shamoun on the other hand quoted him as to try shoot down Muhammed’s character, but I exposed him quickly here.

In short, don’t be duped by these missionary propagandists since we showed here that the weak Hadith is only accepted in relation to good deeds and NOT the Prophet’s life or said commands as the fraudulent Shamoun tried to claim.

Ayaan Hirsi’s Selective Outrage: Response To “Is Islam a Religion of Peace?” Video

I was watching a video by Ayaan Ali Hirsi on Youtube, Titled “Is Islam a Religion of Peace?”

I was shocked to watch this woman’s selective outrage, lie and misrepresent the religion of Islam so much.

Ayaan Ali Hirsi is a person that makes a lot of money spreading misinformation about Islam. She was kicked out of Holland because she was said to be “lying” to the authorities. Everything she claimed in the video is debunked by people who knew her i.e., family back home and friends (non-Muslims) in Holland:

And

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/netherlands/1518532/Critic-of-Islam-to-quit-Holland-after-lies-are-exposed.html

It is interesting how she conveniently leaves out her life story when in Holland, the authorities took her Dutch passport off her for lying about the things she claimed to have been through coming from Kenya, in regards to her immigration matters and other things.

People should know that she is a propagandist, who makes money. She has no shame. The biggest terrorism is committed not by Muslims, but others:

Terrorists You Don’t Hear About In The Media

“Christian Militia Rape And Kill Muslim Children In Central African Republic” https://www.hrw.org/news/2015/04/22/central-african-republic-muslims-held-captive-raped

Imbonerakure youth group from the country of Burundi, who defend Christian president Pierre Nkurunziza, the group have been labelled as “terrorists” because of the indiscriminate killing of innocent people. Imbonerakure, is active group formed in 2010. Human Right Watch states:

“Members of the imbonerakure—the youth league of the ruling National Council for the Defense of Democracy-Forces for the Defense of Democracy (CNDD-FDD)—committed acts of violence, including killings, beatings, rape, threats, and extortion against their perceived opponents and other Burundians.”

Homosexuals are killed DAILY in Jamaica, Ghana, Russia and America (all are Christian countries), I have seen no outrage from these Islamophobic bigots who get orgasm out of bashing Islam/Muslims. Don’t forget America where she lives day and day out Christian Evangelicals try and suppress and discriminate against LGBT community.

1000s who died in anti-gay, anti-trans attacks (updates)

People should understand by now, this is not about saving gay men in the Middle East, it is more about politics. She is given money to bash Muslims/Islam in order for her masters to start more wars in the ME. These people like to dehumanize Muslims around the world…

She talks about blasphemy/apostasy laws, is she aware that atheists have been imprisoned in Russia for denouncing their former faith?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/03/russian-atheist-faces-year-in-jail-for-denying-existence-of-god-during-webchat

Is she aware that it is “blasphemy” and you could go to jail for mocking, make fun of politicians in the Britain (if one uses video from parliament and make fun one can go to jail)??

A Jewish man was arrested and could go to jail only few weeks ago for “questioning” Israel and America, it is blasphemy to talk about Israel, where is the outrage Ayaan Hirsi, shouldnt you be defending this man in court?

So much for her trying to liberate Muslims yet forgetting what is happening at her back yard.

As for her fictitious claims on the Quran being violent, here is a response:

Most Misinterpreted Verses Of The Quran?

As for the battles Prophet Muhammed and his companions were involved 1400 years ago, here is another detailed article:

Early Expeditions And Battles Of Islam

When Ayaan says to defend “Muslims”, she says defend the Uncle Toms that constantly bash Muslims/Islam.

People should be also aware that Prager University (website) is a hardcore Pro-Israel Uni, always in the habit of making videos about Muslims/Islam/Palestinians. Here is a quote from L. Janelle Dance and Charles Holm, on Prager:

“Ardent Zionists like Prager and Valdary demonize Palestinians/Arabs to justify the European colonization of Palestine, just like European elites demonized Americans Indians to justify the theft of Indigenous lands in the United States and dehumanized Africans in order to justify their enslavement.”

LINK: “Propaganda on Palestine: All-Knowing White Man & Angry Black Woman conjure good Jews and evil Arabs” (Mondoweiss.net)

In short, she is not a credible person. Her selective outrage in connection with everything mentioned, people should question her motives. Is she really her to “liberate” Muslims as she claims?
