*“Al-Taqiyah” What is it??
Whole world knows about The Religious Butchering Rapes and loots Done by the Peaceful Religion worldwide but what most people don’t know is “Al-TAQIYAH” First Let us see its defination from Wikipedia ..
A form of religious
dissimulation , or a legal dispensation whereby a
believing individual can deny his faith or commit
otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are
in fear or at risk of significant persecution.
Definition from al-Islam
“al-Taqiyya”literally means:”Concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions,
ideas, feelings, opinions,and/or strategies at a time of eminent danger,
whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental
injury.”A one-word translation would be
One of the few books exclusively devoted to the
subject, At-Taqiyya fi’l-Islam (“Taqiyya in Islam”)
make this unequivocally clear. Written (in Arabic) by Dr.
Sami Mukaram, a former Islamic studies professor at
the American University of Beirut and author of some
twenty-five books on Islam, the book demonstrates the
ubiquity and broad applicability of taqiyya in its
“Taqiyya is of fundamental importance in Islam.
Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and
practices it … We can go so far as to say that the
practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and
that those few sects not practicing it diverge from
the mainstream … Taqiyya is very prevalent in
Islamic politics, especially in the modern era.”
There are two forms of lying to non-believers
that are permitted under certain
circumstances, taqiyya and kitman . These
circumstances are typically those that advance
the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the
trust of non-believers in order to draw out
their vulnerability and defeat them.
References from Qur’an:
Qur’an (16:106) – Establishes that there are
circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to
tell a lie.
Qur’an (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to
take those outside the faith as friends, unless
it is to “guard themselves.”
Qur’an (9:3) – “…Allah and His Messenger are
free from liability to the idolaters…” The
dissolution of oaths with the pagans who
remained at Mecca following its capture.
They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.
Qur’an (40:28) – A man is introduced as a
believer, but one who must “hide his faith”
among those who are not believers.
Qur’an (2:225) – “Allah will not call you to
account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but
for the intention in your hearts” The context of
this remark is marriage, which explains why
Sharia allows spouses to lie to each other for
the greater good.
Qur’an (66:2) – “Allah has already ordained for
you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths”
Qur’an (3:54) – “And they (the disbelievers)
schemed, and Allah schemed (against them):
and Allah is the best of schemers.” The Arabic
word used here for scheme (or plot) is
makara , which literally means ‘deceit’. If
Allah is supremely deceitful toward
unbelievers, then there is little basis for
denying that Muslims are allowed to do the
same. (See also 8:30 and 10:21 )
From the Hadith:
Bukhari (52:269) – “The Prophet said, ‘War is
deceit.'” The context of this is thought to be
the murder of Usayr ibn Zarim and his thirty
unarmed men by Muhammad’s men after he
“guaranteed” them safe passage (see
Additional Notes below).
Bukhari (49:857) – “He who makes peace
between the people by inventing good
information or saying good things, is not a
liar.” Lying is permitted when the end
justifies the means.
Bukhari (84:64-65) – Speaking from a position
of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is
permissible in order to deceive an “enemy.”
Muslim (32:6303) – “…he did not hear that
exemption was granted in anything what the
people speak as lie but in three cases: in battle,
for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and
the narration of the words of the husband to his
wife, and the narration of the words of a wife
to her husband (in a twisted form in order to
bring reconciliation between them).”
Bukhari (50:369) – Recounts the murder of a
poet, Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad’s
insistence. The men who volunteered for the
assassination used dishonesty to gain Ka’b’s
trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad. This drew the victim out of his fortress, whereupon he was brutally slaughtered despite putting up a ferocious struggle for his life.
Taken collectively these verses are interpreted pppto mean that there are circumstances when a
Muslim may be “compelled” to deceive others for a greater purpose.
Now the Question remains is that what must be that greater purpose
From Islamic Law:
Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746 – 8.2) –
“Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a
praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no
need for it. When it is possible to achieve such
an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is
permissible to lie if attaining the goal is
permissible (N:i.e. when the purpose of lying is
to circumvent someone who is preventing one
from doing something permissible), and
obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… it is
religiously precautionary in all cases to employ
words that give a misleading impression…
“One should compare the bad consequences
entailed by lying to those entailed by telling
the truth, and if the consequences of telling
the truth are more damaging, one is entitled
Instances of Al-Taqiyah:
Though not called Taqiyya by name,
Muhammad clearly used deception when he
signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans that
allowed him access to their city while he
secretly prepared his own forces for a
takeover. The unsuspecting residents were
conquered in easy fashion after he broke the
treaty two years later, and some of the people
in the city who had trusted him at his word were executed.
Another example of lying is when Muhammad
used deception to trick his personal enemies
into letting down their guard and exposing
themselves to slaughter by pretending to seek
peace. This happened in the case of Ka’b bin
al-Ashraf (as previously noted) and again later
against Usayr ibn Zarim, a surviving leader of
the Banu Nadir tribe, which had been evicted
from their home in Medina by the Muslims.
At the time, Usayr ibn Zarim was attempting
to gather an armed force against the Muslims
from among a tribe allied with the Quraish
(against which Muhammad had already
declared war). Muhammad’s “emissaries”
went to ibn Zarim and persuaded him to leave
his safe haven on the pretext of meeting with
the prophet of Islam in Medina to discuss
peace. Once vulnerable, the leader and his
thirty companions were massacred by the
Muslims with ease, belying the probability
that they were mostly unarmed, having been given a guarantee of safe passage (Ibn Ishaq 981).
Such was the reputation of Muslims for lying
and then killing that even those who
“accepted Islam” did not feel entirely safe.
The fate of the Jadhima is tragic evidence for
this. When Muslim “missionaries” approached
their tribe one of the members insisted that
they would be slaughtered even though they
had already “converted” to Islam to avoid just
such a demise. However, the others were
convinced that they could trust the Muslim
leader’s promise that they would not be
harmed if they simply offered no resistance.
(After convincing the skeptic to lay down his
arms, the unarmed men of the tribe were
quickly tied up and beheaded – Ibn Ishaq 834
Today’s Muslims often try to justify
Muhammad’s murder of poets and others who
criticized him at Medina by saying that they
broke a treaty by their actions. Yet, these
same apologists place little value on treaties
broken by Muslims. From Muhammad to
Saddam Hussein, promises made to non-
Muslim are distinctly non-binding in the
Leaders in the Arab world routinely say one
thing to English-speaking audiences and then
something entirely different to their own
people in Arabic. Yassir Arafat was famous
for telling Western newspapers about his
desire for peace with Israel, then turning
right around and whipping Palestinians into a
hateful and violent frenzy against Jews.
The 9/11 hijackers practiced deception by
going into bars and drinking alcohol, thus
throwing off potential suspicion that they
were fundamentalists plotting jihad. This
effort worked so well, in fact, that even weeks
after 9/11, John Walsh, the host of a popular
American television show, said that their bar
trips were evidence of ‘hypocrisy.’
The transmission from Flight 93 records the
hijackers telling their doomed passengers that
there is “a bomb on board” but that everyone
will “be safe” as long as “their demands are
met.” Obviously none of these things were
true, but these men, who were so intensely
devoted to Islam that they were willing to
“slay and be slain for the cause of Allah” (as
the Qur’an puts it) saw nothing wrong with
employing Taqiyya in order to facilitate their
mission of mass murder.
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)
insists that it “has not now or ever been
involved with the Muslim Brotherhood, or
supported any covert, illegal, or terrorist
activity or organization.” In fact, it was
created by the Muslim Brotherhood and has
bankrolled Hamas. At least nine founders or
board members of ISNA have been accused by
prosecutors of supporting terrorism.
Prior to engineering several deadly terror
plots, such as the Fort Hood massacre and the
attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner,
American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was
regularly sought out by NPR, PBS and even
government leaders to expound on the
peaceful nature of Islam.
The Quran says in several places that Allah is
the best at deceiving people. An interesting
side note is verse 7:99 , which says that the
only people who feel secure from Allah are
actually those who will perish in Hell. Taken
literally, this would mean that those Muslims
who arrogantly assume that they will enter
heaven are in for a rude surprise (such are
the hazards of worshipping an all-powerful deceiver).
Al-Taqiyah in modern world
Al-Taqiyah is still in use today (and is widely
practised and acknowledged by the Shi’ite
sect) but not necessarily State-organized.
Arab-Islamic missionaries are slowly
converting the disillusioned criminal classes
of the Western world by feeding them a
Western “moderate” version of Islam (at the
same time denouncing the actions of Muslims
in the rest of the world as Un Islamic e.g.
Taliban, GIA & FIA [Armed Islamic Front] of
Algeria, Hamas, Lashkar -e Toyiba, Bin Laden
and company, etc.)
It is done to prevent the new converts from
seeing the real face of Islam; at least until
their faith or mental conditioning is strong
enough to make them turn against their
own country and people.
Muslims are raised such that they lie to any
extent. If you threaten them,asking whether they are a
Muslim or not,they would abuse their prophet to prove
they are non-Muslim.
