Assalamu alaikum.

The USA is unquestionably accepted as the most civilized and advanced country in the world. This is because of its level of education that is defined by Muhammad Rasulullah as the ability to discern the truth. All are to follow and emulate its civilization. If its sneezes the rest of the world barks. The USA is indeed looking for ways to remove and deal away with terrorism- to be buried forever. This calls on her to be just and abide by the truth. To the Western world, Islam in particular the final message through Muhammad is the precipitating factor of our social unrest and economic downturn. That is true superficially for every disaster is a product of Nature.

Recently loonwatch.com carried an advert by Pamella Geller the outspoken blogger and Executive Director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative. She has just purchased a slew of advertising space in several subway stations and on numerous Metro-North platforms in order to display her newest anti-Islam message: "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers."

In the first instance, she quoted a clause instead of the full verse (sentence). This is allowed only if the quotation is supported by the reason behind quoting that clause. This gives rise to distortion and misinterpretation with the resulting consequence of provoking intimidating those followers of Muhammad who are illiterate and ready to cause mischief. This style of misquoting the Qur’an is the main ingredient behind Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

The clause quoted by Pamella is referring to Abu Sufyan the Chieftain of the Quraysh during the battle of Uhud. This was the battle in which the believers were defeated and Muhammad injured. The cause was disregarding the command of Muhammad to 50 archers he posted to stop the advance of Khalid ibn Walid. When the Quraysh were on their way to Makka, Abu Sufyan decided to turn back and continue with the battle and defeat Muhammad finally. It was at this junction that Allah revealed to Muhammad Qur’an 3:151, “We shall cast terror 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 wrong-doers.”

According to the ethics and guidelines in the commentary of the Qur’an, the verse/clause does not in any way refer to the Americans or any one. It will never apply to the Western world for it has on many occasions stated that it is not fighting Islam/Muhammad Rasulullah.

I have called on this forum many times to play it soft and stop accusing Muhammad or just holding the Qur’an and reading. It has to be explained and no one can explain it thoroughly except the one who understands the nature of Arab language and follows the standard explanation.

Those who want to criticize the followers of Muhammad in order to bring them back to the way of life of Muhammad are welcomed. This is what the Western civilization should adopt for they should see to it in their areas of jurisdictions the actions of Muhammad Rasulullah are followed to the latter.  This is what Allah is expecting from them. This is the only way to counteract terrorism- the spread of Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

I am advising Pamella Geller to use her resources in correcting the followers of Muhammad Rasullah in performing their devotions according to the practice set up by Muhammad Rasulullah. She can buy this book: ISBN 1468070444 detailing the practice of Muhammad during prayers and distribute it to all Mosques in New York. She should see to it that the Mayor of New York makes it a rule for all mosques to follow the instructions contained in that book. From then, New York will never suffer any terrorist act. The amount of money spent by the Mayor on electronic surveillance and other security measures will now be converted to social welfare. Muhammad cannot be a liar! At least practice leads to perfection!

Friendship.

As a result she (USA)has produced people like Pamella Geller:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamela_Geller
Pamela Geller (born June 14, 1958)[5] is an American blogger, author, political activist, and commentator.[1] She is known primarily for her criticisms of Islam and opposition to Muslim activities and causes, such as the proposed construction of an Islamic community center near the former site of the World Trade Center.[6] She has described her blogging and campaigns in the United States as being against what she terms "creeping Sharia" in the country. She has claimed her viewpoints are against "Political Islam". Her critics have described her viewpoints are Islamophobic.
Geller and Robert Spencer co-founded the Freedom Defense Initiative and Stop Islamization of America,[7] an organization which is labeled as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League[8] and the Southern Poverty Law Center.[9][10] Geller and Spencer also co-authored the book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America.[3]

Friendship, I'd like to change your initial statement to:

The USA is accepted by many as one of the most civilized and advanced countries in the world.

I think there would be fewer people like Pamela Geller, if mainstream Muslims decided the leave the silent majority and become advocates for a modern 21st-century Islam without politics and the baggage of 7th-century Arab culture which had found its way into the Qur'an and the Hadith. If millions of Muslims openly supported Muslims like Irshad Manji, people like Pamela Geller would soon disappear and non-Muslims in the West would no longer fear Islam's claim of world dominance.

But the reality is discouraging. The Muslim Brotherhood was the first Islamist terror organization of the 20th century. Today they are the elected rulers of Egypt. The majority of Egyptians seem to endorse a new constitution that includes the discrimination of women, Christians and other religious minorities. Egypt is heading for disaster. Investors will avoid Egypt. Soon tourists will avoid Egypt too. The population voted for its own downfall. And Muslims in the West are silent. Muslims don't criticize Muslims.

Assalamu alaika Matt Browne.

I do not think we can go further because you and the rest do not know and therefore cannot understand what Muhammad came to do.
I and any true believer in Muhammad do not take and refer to someone's actions as a model. The model I have is that of Muhammad Rasulullah. So, it is sinful for any believer to refer to someone's actions unless they conform to that of Muhammad Rasulullah. Why is that you do not read what we are trying to explain to you?
I am not interested in what the 'Arabs are saying or doing as I have explained in the book ISBN: 978-1-60976-919-2

Please quote Muhammad or decline to comment on his actions. You regard the Arabs superior to me?

Friendship.

Matt,
You make a very good analysis.  I think many of us would like to see contentions disappear but the change must come from the muslims themselves.

Assalamu alaika Caringheart.

I am not promoting the book for any benefit other than your own. You attack Islam that is what Muhammad taught simply because you are told the wrongs. You call us to secularize , assimilate, integrate etc. Can an ignorant one be directed? What is the place of education? Why do you not want to be straightforward? We need education. Muhammad came to teach and educate. The Qur'an has described in many places your attitude. Please read to be educated, listen to the understanding of those with the same education and then use your sense of discrimination. It must be through education.

Friendship

Assalamu alaika Caringheart.

Please understand the type of people you are talking to in this forum. Be consistent honest hopeful and with a sincere desire to help others.
Matt Browne mentioned scholars to rise and tell the truth. But you want illiteracy to prevail! If Muslims do not criticize Muslims, tell me how to stimulate them criticize themselves. Islam that is the teaching of Muhammad is universal and all must be educated. Then you participate and call the Muslims to order. That is what the book is all about! It is meant for you Christians with desire of peace to be bold and face the distortions in your books and what the Muslims  are saying based on their ignorance.
One thing is certain despite your objection. it is high time we change and receive the good from Muhammad.

Friendship.
