For brevity this chapter will list a number of common mullah beliefs which divide muslims from the rest of the world and cause sectarian conflicts among muslims. Again many of these mullah beliefs are plagiarised from the Bible.
1. PREJUDICE AGAINST MENSTRUATING WOMEN : In the mullahs reckoning women occupy a second class position in society. These teachings are not found in the Koran. They are not part of the prophet’s teachings.
The mullahs say the women are “spiritually” unclean when they are menstruating. A menstruating woman cannot pray, go to the mosque, touch the Koran, fast or perform the haj. And a woman who gives birth is considered spiritually unclean for 40 days with more restrictions imposed on her. These ideas are not found in the Koran. They come from the Bible.
[Lev 12:2] "Say to the people of Israel, If a woman conceives, and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as at the time of her menstruation, she shall be unclean.
[Lev 12:4] Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying; she shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying are completed.
Seven plus thirty three = forty days of uncleanness, exactly the same 40 day period of uncleanness prescribed by the mullah for post natal mothers.
[Lev 12:5] But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her menstruation; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying for sixty-six days.
14 + 66 = 80 days of uncleanness if the child is a female. The discrimination against girls starts early. The Koran does address the issue of the women’s menses.
2 :222 They question thee concerning menstruation. Say: It is an illness, so let women alone at such times and go not in unto them till they are cleansed. And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you. Truly Allah loveth those who turn unto Him, and loveth those who have a care for cleanness.
The teaching here is that during menstruation men should not approach women for sex (“and go not in unto them till they are cleansed”) because they are unclean. After they are clean, men can resume their relations with women (And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you).
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out. There is a multibillion dollarfemale hygiene products market. But having their periods does not prevent women from driving cars, teaching at school, breaking the Olympic record, sailing around the world or cooking for their husbands. The mullah prejudices against women only impose more Biblical teachings upon the muslims.
2. SALAMUN ALAIKUM VERSUS THE JEWISH ASHALOM ALEICHEM: Over the years I have been repeatedly asking the mullahs to show me at least one thing they do in their religion which is definitely from the Koran. So far they have not been able to show me anything at all.
Even something as simple as their greeting is different from the greeting taught in the Koran. The mullahs say ‘Assalamu Alaykum’. The reply is ‘Wa-alaykum Salam’.
THIS GREETING AND ITS REPLY ARE NOT FOUND IN THE KORAN.
The Koran says ‘SalaamunAlaykum’ - a slight yet significant difference.
6:54 When those who believe in our revelations (AYAAT) come to you, you shall say, "SALAMUN ALAYKUM” (Peace be upon you). Your Lord has decreed that mercy is His attribute..”
Arabic transliteration : Waitha jaa’aka allazeena yu’minoona bi-ayaatina faqul SALAAMUN ALAYKUM kataba rabbukum ala-nafsihi al rahmata.
The Koran does not have a different version for the reply greeting. In the Koran both the greeting and its response shall be SALAMUN ALAYKUM only.
The mullahs ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM greeting has been plagiarised almost completely from the Jews. The following is from the Wikipedia:
Shalom aleichem (שָׁלוֹם עֲלֵיכֶם; "well-being be upon you" or "may you be well") this expression is used to greet others and is a Hebrew equivalent of "hello". The appropriate response to such a greeting is "upon you be well-being" ( עֲלֵיכֶם שָׁלוֹם, aleichem shalom).
While the Koran prescribes only the SALAAMUN ALAYKUM for both the greeting and its response, the mullahs have copied both the Jewish Shalom Aleichem and its response Aleichem Shalom.
This may sound minor but the point is proven yet again - that even in the simplest matter of greetings themullahs have completely ignored the Koran and prefer to plagiarise from the Jewish teachings.
The mullahs greet each other with a Jewish greeting not found in the Koran. The mullahsthen say this is just a small matter.
Some mullahs once laughed and said ‘Will Allah punish us for even a slightly different greeting?’ The Koran has perhaps anticipated that the mullahs will make light of this. Here is the Koran:
58:8 Have you noted those who were enjoined from conspiring secretly, then insist on conspiring? They conspire to commit sin, transgression, and disobedience of the messenger. WHEN THEY COME TO YOU THEY GREET YOU WITH A GREETING OTHER THAN THAT DECREED BY ALLAH. They say inside themselves, "Allah will not punish us for our utterances." Their only requital is Gehenna what a miserable destiny.
This is exactly what the mullahs say and do. The Koran’s prescribed greeting of Salaamun Alaykum is also a discipline imposed on all believers. Muslims must obey the Koran down to the letter.
But if the mullahs can change even something as simple as a greeting in the Koran and then make light of the matter, surely then they can corrupt other significant matters as well. As we are seeing in this book, they have done this in abundance. The mullahs have completely corrupted Islam.
NOT ONE of the religious practices taught by the mullahs can be found detailed inside the Koran. Another ritual is their five daily prayers which we will discuss in Chapter 18. There is also no such thing as the pilgrimage to Mecca in the Koran – see Chapter 20. As we are seeing, most of the mullah beliefs are plagiarised from the Bible.
3. THE COVENANT OF CIRCUMCISION :The Covenant of Circumcision is just one more mullah belief plagiarised from the Bible. The mullahs say the prophet taught them to circumcise their children. The situation is so bad that the sunnis even circumcise their female children. The mutilation of female genitalia is a serious problem in Africa and the Middle East. The truth is the Koran never asked the mullahs to circumcise anyone. On the contrary the Koran says that Allah perfected the human shape :
40:64 "Allah it is Who appointed for you the earth for a dwelling-place and the sky for a canopy, AND FASHIONED YOU AND PERFECTED YOUR SHAPES, and hath provided you with good things. Such is Allah, your Lord. Then blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds"
The human form has been made perfect - including the foreskin on the male and the genitalia of the female. There is no need for any smart mullah to improve on Allah's creation - even as an option or an exercise of freewill. Anyone has the freedom and option to cut off their foreskin or mutilate any other part of their body - but that is not part of Allah's commandments. The mullah belief in circumcision comes from the Bible.
The Covenant of Circumcision.
[Gen 17:14.13] Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of hisforeskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant."
This is the Jewish covenant of circumcision.Also the following:
[Gen 17:24] Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in theflesh of his foreskin.
This non Koranic story is also repeated in the Bukhari hadith. The mullahs say that Abraham circumcised himself with an adze, a small axe.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 575: Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "Abraham did his circumcision with an adze at the age of eighty" .
Here is the rest of the biblical story about circumcision:
[Gen 17:25.18] And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcisedin the flesh of his foreskin.
So once again we see that the mullahs uphold the old biblical beliefs which almost all of modern christendom has abandoned.
4. GRAVEN IMAGES : The mullahs say one should not make statues of animals and humans as these can lead to idol worship. They also disallow the making of wood carvings, moulds and also the drawing or painting of pictures that have animal or human forms.
Of course with the advent of the modern media the mullahs too have learnt the value of publicity. The mullahs in Saudi Arabia have come up with a simple solution to get around the problem of their ‘graven images’ recorded on photographs. They say that a photograph is just like a reflection in the mirror. It is just that in a photograph the image remains permanently. This is the Mullah Shuffle - they find loopholes to get around their own fabricated laws.
You will not find such beliefs in the Koran. But the Bible calls it the worship of ‘graven images’. It is found in the following verses :
[Deut 4:14] And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes andordinances, that you might do them in the land which you are going over to possess.
[Deut 4:15 - 18] "Therefore take good heed to yourselves. Since you saw no form on the day that the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire, beware lest you act corruptly by making a graven image for yourselves, in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female, the likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the air, the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water under the earth.
Modern day christians do not follow the Bible’s prohibitions about ‘Graven Images’ anymore. Hence catholic churches are full of statues, cherubs and angels. It is the mullahs who have taken these biblical teachings to greater heights. ‘Islamic’ art has been reduced to nothing more than calligraphy and geometric patterns because of the mullahsbiblical prohibitions.
The Koran does not forbid statues, carvings or paintings. In the Koran the Prophet Solomon was engaged in the making of statues.
34:12 - 13 “.. and certain of the jinn worked before him (Solomon) by permission of his Lord. . .. They made for him what he willed: buildings and STATUES, basins like wells and boilers built into the ground. .”
“Buildings and STATUES, basins like wells and boilers built into the ground”. The Koran does not prohibit statues, art forms or paintings that have human and animal forms in them.
In Afghanistan the fanatic Taliban blew up the ancient Buddha statues in a place called Bamiyan which had been declared a World Heritage site. The Taliban were upholding the same biblical prohibitions on graven images.
5. BEARDS : The mullahs are fond of growing beards. They also shave off their moustache. Here are some hadith from Bukhari :
Bukhari Book 002, Number 0501: Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Trim closely the moustache, and grow beard, and thus act against the fire-worshippers.
Bukhari Book 002, Number 0502: 'A'isha reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Ten are the acts according to fitra: clipping the moustache, letting the beard grow, using the tooth - stick, snuffing water in the nose, cutting the nails, washing the finger joints, plucking the hair under the armpits, shaving the pubes and cleaning one's private parts with water. The narrator said: I have forgotten the tenth, but it may have been rinsing the mouth.
Good hygiene is welcome but shaving the pubes is not a command from Allah. This is another idea the mullahs have taken from the Bible, including shaving the pubes.
Book of Numbers 8:5-7: "5 Then the LORD said to Moses, 6 ‘Now set the Levites apart from the rest of the people of Israel and make them ceremonially clean. 7 Do this by sprinkling them with the water of purification. And have them shave their entire body and wash their clothing. Then they will be ceremonially clean. . . .’"
So is the idea of growing beards :
[Lev 19:27] You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard.
[Lev 21:5.16] They shall not make tonsures upon their heads, nor shave off the edges of their beards, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
To the modern christians these are not issues at all. Christians do not follow the Bible to the letter. But the mullahs wear their beards just like the Bible tells them.
6. Saying ‘AMEN’ : The mullahs say Amen at the end of the Surah Fatiha, the first chapter of the Koran which they recite 17 times throughout their five daily prayers. The fact is there is no Amen in Surah Fatiha or anywhere else in the Koran.The mullahs have plagiarised the Amen from the Bible.
Bible, Book of Deuteronomy 27 : 15 - 26
15 "Cursed is the man who carves an image or casts an idol-a thing detestable to the LORD , the work of the craftsman's hands-and sets it up in secret."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
16 "Cursed is the man who dishonours his father or his mother."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
17 "Cursed is the man who moves his neighbour’s boundary stone."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
18 "Cursed is the man who leads the blind astray on the road."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
19 "Cursed is the man who withholds justice from the alien, the fatherless or thewidow." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
20 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his father's wife, for he dishonours his father's bed." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
21 "Cursed is the man who has sexual relations with any animal." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
22 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his sister, the daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
23 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his mother-in-law."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
24 "Cursed is the man who kills his neighbour secretly."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
25 "Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
26 "Cursed is the man who does not uphold the words of this law by carrying them out."Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"
In these Bible passages the Amen is a curse that is cast against people. The mullahs have plagiarised the Amen from the Bible.
7. HANGING UPHOLY WRITING : The mullahs also encourage hanging up holy arabic writing on the wall. They hang up the arabic ‘holy’ words Allah, Muhammad, Ali and verses from the Koran on the walls of houses, in the mosques, inside their cars, at the entrance to their homes and everywhere. They also write arabic writing on pieces of paper, put it inside amulets and hang it aroundtheir necks, tie it to their waist, tie to their wrists, carry it in their wallets and so on. When religious fanatics run wild in the streets they tie the arabic writing around their foreheads. We have seen all this on TV. They think this will bring them blessings, avoid bad luck, chase away evil and other such things.
The major heresy which the mullahs teach is hanging the name of “Muhammad”(or Ali) beside the name of Allah in the mosques, in their houses and offices. All these ideas are taken from the Bible.
[Deut 6: 6] And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. And you shall T I E THEM as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes (TIE on your forehead).
[Deut 6: 9] And you shall WRITE THEM on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Accordingly the Bible says the purpose of putting holy writing on the wall is to attract blessings:
[Deut 11:20 -21 ] And you shall WRITE THEM UPON the doorposts of your housesand upon your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth.
This is exactly what the mullahs say - hanging up arabic writing on the wall will multiply blessings, good luck, good fortune and angel visitations.
8. MULLAH WIFE BEATING : The mullahs also say that it is permissible for men to beat their wives. This is their famous misquoting of 4:34:
“Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge (beat) them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great” – translation by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall.
“banish them to beds apart, and scourge (beat) them” (Arabic transliteration : wa-idriboo-hunna).
Idriboo is derived from the word darab which in the Koran also means to travel, to cover over, to draw over or to strike. Here are some examples :
3:156 are travelling through the Earth (daraboo fil ardi)
24:31 ‘draw their veils over their bosoms (yadribna bi khumuuri hinna alaa juyoobi hinna)
7:160 Moses was told “Strike (idrib) the rock with your staff”
The second mistake the interpreters have made is to divide this long verse into parts – as in the translation above - thus confusing its meaning. Let us relook 4:34 above without dividing it into many parts and also inserting the correct meaning of darab :
4:34 “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them stronger than the other, and because they spend of their property, therefore good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded and as for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart but journey / cohabit (daraboo) with them when they obey you and seek not a way against them. Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great”.
The way to handle rebellious women is to admonish them and then to separate from their beds. But if they return to obedience, then cohabit with them (waidriboohunna) and do not hold anything against them anymore. THERE IS NO WIFE BEATING IN THE KORAN.
These are more examples of biblical and other non Koranic beliefs which are taught by the mullahs. These are not part of Islam (which simply means submission). There are no such things in the Koran.
The muslims are running around confused and unable to be a part of civilized modern society because they uphold strange and outdated mullah beliefs from the Bible and other sources. They do not obey the Koran. And they do not know it.
