Fitna

The film “Fitna” was released on the web today.  It’s here if you want to view it.  A story about it (and the controversy around it) is here on FoxNews

Here’s another link to the movie.

Personally, I think way to many people are way too uptight about religion in general.  God speaks to too many people – and He seems to say something different to each one.  I wish He’d get his story straight so we could stop killing each other because He said different things to different people.  🙂

Ok, that’s the polite way of saying it – here’s another way: All you people who are listening to voices in your head that you think are messages from God/Jesus and/or Allah/Muhammad – get a medical checkup before you blow up someone else.

  1. I just watched this so called documentary titled FITNA by Geert Wilders(laknatullahialaihim).May Allah someday opens his heart to see the truth.

    This ‘documentary’ was clearly released to provoke hatred and fearfulness towards Islam especially among non Muslims.
    In Fitna,even few verses from Al-Quran al Karim were shown and i felt that it is one of my duty to correct the misunderstandings that has been created by Fitna.

    Eventhough i was filled with rage and anger upon watching this documentary,i solely believe that this evil Fitna was produced due to ignorance and misunderstandings about Islam.The people producing this ‘documentary’ may have other hidden agenda or they are just afraid of Islam.
    The tile itself-Fitna means falsehood.

    The verses of Al Quran that were shown are taken from various surahs and i can see that the producer was trying hard to convey that Islam proposed the killing of non Muslims.In simple words they were apparently trying to come out with ‘proofs taken from the Quran itself’ that Islam is a religion of terrorists.

    a)surah 8 verse 60

    You shall prepare for them all the power you can muster, and all the equipment you can mobilize, that you may frighten the enemies of GOD, your enemies, as well as others who are not known to you; GOD knows them. Whatever you spend in the cause of GOD will be repaid to you generously, without the least injustice.(8,60)

    looking from this verse alone,those who do not understand or recite al-Quran properly will think that Allah asks the believer to attack the enemies of God(aka non Muslims) but this is totally not what this verse meant.

    let’s have a look at the verses before after this verse.

    8:56] You reach agreements with them, but they violate their agreements every time; they are not righteous.

    [8:57] Therefore, if you encounter them in war, you shall set them up as a deterrent example for those who come after them, that they may take heed.

    [8:58] When you are betrayed by a group of people, you shall mobilize against them in the same manner. GOD does not love the betrayers.

    [8:59] Let not those who disbelieve think that they can get away with it; they can never escape.

    [8:60] You shall prepare for them all the power you can muster, and all the equipment you can mobilize, that you may frighten the enemies of GOD, your enemies, as well as others who are not known to you; GOD knows them. Whatever you spend in the cause of GOD will be repaid to you generously, without the least injustice.

    [8:61] If they resort to peace, you also incline to it,so shall you, and put your trust in GOD. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

    these verses merely teaches Muslims how to deal with the non believers who VIOLATE THE AGREEMENTS that are made among those two.
    IF the VIOLATION LEADS to WAR then only Muslims are supposed to fight back in order to teach them a lesson(so that they will not violate any agreements that are made)
    Allah indeed hates betrayers and if the non believers BETRAY their promises there is no reason why Muslims should trust them.
    However,eventhough Allah asks Muslims to GET READY and PREPARE to fight the INJUSTICE by war,if the non believers WANTED PEACE Muslims should accept it and put their trust in Allah.

    2)surah 4 verse 56

    Surely, those who disbelieve in our revelations, we will condemn them to the hellfire. Whenever their skins are burnt, we will give them new skins. Thus, they will suffer continuously. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.

    This is as if to show that The God of Muslims are very cruel and what?Muslims are that good?Non Muslims will burn in hell?This shall be stopped!-more or less this is what the producer trying to convey.

    let us see a more complete version of this.(verse 51-57)
    [4:51]Have you noted those received a portion of the scripture(Taurat and Gospel), and how they believe in idolatry and false doctrine, then say, “The disbelievers are better guided than the believers?!”

    [4:52] It is they who incurred GOD’s condemnation, and whomever GOD condemns, you will not find any helper for him.

    [4:53] Do they own a share of the sovereignty(power to rule)? If they did, they would not give the people as much as a grain.

    [4:54] Are they envious of the people(Muhammad and his followers) because GOD has showered them with His blessings? We have indeed given Abraham’s family the scripture, and wisdom; we granted them a great authority.

    [4:55] Some of them believed therein, and some of them repelled therefrom; Hell is the only just retribution for these.

    [4:56] Surely, those who disbelieve in our revelations, we will condemn them to the hellfire. Whenever their skins are burnt, we will give them new skins. Thus, they will suffer continuously. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.

    [4:57] As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, we will admit them into gardens with flowing streams; they abide therein forever. They will have pure spouses therein. We will admit them into a blissful shade.

    Actually this verse is about the teachings of faith and how the people who have received revelations from Allah deny the truth that has been sent to them.
    It is true that Taurat and Gospel are words of Allah.But there has been corrupts and injustice done towards the Books that they have been altered by irresponsible party.They do not want to admit that Muhammad is the last Messenger of Allah and do not accept Islam as the true religion from Allah.
    And for those who has done this Allah promised a severe chastisement that is the Hell fire and to picture how painful it is,Allah says everytime their skin are burnt Allah will replace a new skin for them so that they will in a continuous pain.

    Allah has given evidences,verses,lessons,signs,and revelations not only towards Muslims but to all mankind.It is only whether or not the teaching reaches you and if it reaches you whether or not you want to believe it.It is up to you to practice any religion as stated in surah 109 verse 1 to 6.

    [109:1] Say, “O you disbelievers.

    [109:2] “I do not worship what you worship.

    [109:3] “Nor do you worship what I worship.

    [109:4] “Nor will I ever worship what you worship.

    [109:5] “Nor will you ever worship what I worship.

    [109:6] “To you is your religion, and to me is my religion.”

    And also in surah 2 verse 256
    [2:256] There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.

    Thus for us as a Muslim,it is our duty to spread the teachings of Islam to non believers because we don’t want them to be punished in the Hell fire forever and we do not want them to be deceived by the so called Holy book of theirs which has been altered by irresposible parties.
    However,still the beauty of Islam is that Muslims are not supposed to force non believers to convert into Islam and if the message has been received by them yet they do not want to accept it,it is still up to the non believers to practice their religion for Allah has given us mind to think.

    3)surah 47 verse 4

    [47:4] If you encounter (in war-Jihad in Allah’s cause) those who disbelieve, you may strike the necks till you have killed and wounded many of them. If you take them as captives you may set them free or ransom them, until the war ends. Had GOD willed, He could have granted you victory, without war. But He thus tests you by one another. As for those who get killed in the cause of GOD, He will never put their sacrifice to waste.

    By showing this verse(plus not showing the bracket),the producer clearly wants people to think that Islam teaches its believers to slay any non believers they meet.In the documentary the verse is not even complete:
    (Therefore when ye meet the unbelievers,smite at their necks and when ye have caused a blood bath among them,bind a bond firmly on them)
    How cruel and terrible Islam iS!-according to what they have shown above.

    The more longer and complete version of surah muhammad is:

    [47:1] Those who disbelieve(in Oneness of Allah and the Message of prophet Muhammad) and repel from the path of GOD, He nullifies their works.

    [47:2] Those who believe and work righteousness, and believe in what was sent down to Muhammad – which is the truth from their Lord – He remits their sins, and blesses them with contentment.

    [47:3] This is because those who disbelieve are following falsehood, while those who believe are following the truth from their Lord. GOD thus cites for the people their examples.

    [47:4] If you encounter (in war-Jihad in Allah’s cause) those who disbelieve, you may strike the necks till you have killed and wounded many of them. If you take them as captives you may set them free or ransom them, until the war ends. Had GOD willed, He could have granted you victory, without war. But He thus tests you by one another. As for those who get killed in the cause of GOD, He will never put their sacrifice to waste.

    [47:5] He will guide them, and bless them with contentment.

    [47:6] He will admit them into Paradise, that He described to them.

    [47:7] O you who believe, if you support GOD, He will support you, and strengthen your foothold.

    [47:8] Those who disbelieve incur misery; He causes their works to be utterly in vain.

    [47:9] That is because they hated what GOD revealed and consequently, He nullifies their works.

    [47:10] Did they not roam the earth and see the consequences for those before them? GOD destroyed their works; all disbelievers will suffer the same fate.

    This surah is to teach Muslims how to deal with non believers who threatened them and who try to hinder men from the path of Allah.Allah gives permission to kill this kind of non believers if it happens to be a war between those two.Allah even allows Muslims to strike their necks in wars to show how Allah hates this kind of people as they not only disbelief in Allah but they also wants other to follow them and they always find ways by any means to stop Islam from spreading.

    And Allah teaches Muslims how to deal with hostages from war that is either to set them free if they are not dangerous to Muslims or to set them free by ransom in order to teach them a lesson.Sadly enough,many media has labelled Islam as terrorist that ‘the Muslims will even smite hostages,woman,children or anyone as long as they are non believers’.Even there are some rules to be followed by Muslims during the war like they are forbidden to kill pregnant woman,small children,old people,people who are not capable to battle etc.Those are falsehood indeed(fitna!) the title of the documentary that is.

    Allah clearly has reminded believers that there will be non believers who always spread hatred towards Islam as they do not like what Allah has sent to them like Al Quran ,Islamic laws etc (FORBIDDING GAY FOR EXAMPLE?)

    4) surah 4 verse 89
    [4:89] They wish that you disbelieve as they have disbelieved, then you become equal. Do not consider them friends, unless they mobilize along with you in the cause of GOD. If they turn against you, you shall fight them, and you may kill them when you encounter them in war. You shall not accept them as friends, or allies.

    Again the producer of fitna tries to convey that Islam is not a friendly religion.Islam orders believers to kill none believers and their version are even worse:
    (they but wish that ye should reject faith as they do and thus be on the same footing as they,so take not friends among their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah.But if they turn renegades seize them and kill them whenever ye find them and take no friends or helpers among their ranks)

    As if whenever you find non believers,kill them,owh how cruel a religion might be?

    Let us see a fuller version of this surah:

    [4:82] Why do they not study the Quran carefully? If it were from other than GOD, they would have found in it numerous contradictions.

    [4:83] When a rumor that affects security comes their way, they spread it. Had they referred it to the messenger, and those in charge among them, those who understand these matters would have informed them. If it were not for GOD’s grace towards you, and His mercy, you would have followed the devil, except a few.

    [4:84] You shall fight for the cause of GOD; you are responsible only for your own soul, and exhort the believers to do the same. GOD will neutralize the power of those who disbelieve. GOD is much more powerful, and much more effective.

    [4:85] Whoever mediates a good deed receives a share of the credit thereof, and whoever mediates an evil work, incurs a share thereof. GOD controls all things.

    [4:86] When greeted with a greeting, you shall respond with a better greeting or at least an equal one. GOD reckons all things.

    [4:87] GOD: there is no god except He. He will surely summon you on the Day of Resurrection – the inevitable day. Whose narration is more truthful than GOD’s?

    [4:88] Why should you divide yourselves into two groups regarding hypocrites (among you)? GOD is the one who condemned them because of their own behavior. Do you want to guide those who are sent astray by GOD? Whomever GOD sends astray, you can never find a way to guide them.

    [4:89] They wish that you disbelieve as they have disbelieved, then you become equal. Do not consider them friends, unless they mobilize along with you in the cause of GOD. If they turn against you, you shall fight them, and you may kill them when you encounter them in war. You shall not accept them as friends, or allies.

    [4:90] Exempted are those who join people with whom you have signed a peace treaty, and those who come to you wishing not to fight you, nor fight their relatives. Had GOD willed, He could have permitted them to fight against you. Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD gives you no excuse to fight them.

    [4:91] You will find others who wish to make peace with you, and also with their people. However, as soon as war erupts, they fight against you. Unless these people leave you alone, offer you peace, and stop fighting you, you may fight them when you encounter them. Against these, we give you a clear authorization.

    Looking at the next verse(verse 90) alone is sufficient actually:

    [4:90] Exempted are those who join people with whom you have signed a peace treaty, and those who come to you wishing not to fight you, nor fight their relatives. Had GOD willed, He could have permitted them to fight against you. Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD gives you no excuse to fight them.

    Islam is religion of peace indeed.If the non believers do not wish to fight then it is even forbidden for Muslims to even fight them let alone striking their heads.However if they are dangerous towards Islam and Muslims,and threaten Islam Allah gives His permission for killing those enemy of Islam.

    Islam never attacks but only defences.

    And from the verse 82 and 83, Allah has reminded those who believe that there are definitely no contradictions in Al-Quran like in other’Holy books’ which are not the real words of God for they have been altered by the Irresposible parties.And this non believers are also quick in spreading rumors without knowing the truth and without referring the to teaching of Allah’s last Messenger prophet Muhammad or those who understand.(like what has been happening to FITNA)

    Verse 86 even teaches believers to the way to greet people.What a wonderful and complete religion Islam is.

    Verse 88 reminds believers of importance of Unity. Allah also says that some people who have lots of dirt in their heart will not accept the truth and the teachings of Islam.This people Allay leaves them to remain in astray (may us be not among them) and even if the Islamic teaching reaches them it will not be fruitful as Allah has closed their hearts from accepting the truth.THESE ARE THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE ALLOWED TO BE KILLED IF EVER A WAR OCCUR BETWEEN THOSE TWO(believers and non believers) and THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT A MUSLIM SHOULD NEVER REGARD AS FRIENDS AS THEY CLEARLY HATE ISLAM AND ARE THE ENEMY OF ISLAM.

    Islam is not cruel at all.It Is a religion that loves peace.

    As for us Muslims,we already know that the enemy of Islam will always find ways to defeat Islam.

    If Islam forbid gay,there are reasons for it.If Islam forbid adultery there are reasons for it.

    We Muslims believe that Allah is our creator and one day we will go back to our Creator.
    He has given us many guidance on how to live in this world peacefully according to His laws and of course He has the rights to punish us for after He has given a lots of signs and revelations yet we still disobey Him.

    For non Muslims,it is never wrong to practice your religion but still it is not wrong if you study about Islam and Al-Quran and then choose.Allah has given His guidance yet the choice is yours.

    About the pictures and videos that were shown in fitna i need not comment a lot about that for people can take a bit of this and of that to produce falsehood or anything that they wished to produce.

    Fitna will eventually become one of the reasons why more and more people converts to Islam.

    Now i have done my part and i leave the rest for you to think.

    All the goodness came from Allah and all the mistakes are due to my own weakness.

    Peace be upon you.
