Beware of Muslims bearing the “truth.” The cult of Islam has found a convenient loophole to justify their deceptions.
Hundreds of years after the time Muhammad walked the earth, several denominations of Islam each collected their own variation of extra-quranic narratives known as Hadith. What we might call “hearsay,” hadith supposedly record the words and deeds of Islam’s prophet Muhammad (MHBHF). For reasons not stated, the narratives were omitted from their chief holy book, the Qur’an.
Each hadith begins with a chain of “witnesses” to substantiate the story. It is not uncommon for the narrative to have come down through a second or third party. Muslims are expected to believe that so-and-so said that so-and-so said that so-and-so said this or that about their prophet. We can only assume the journalism of the New York Times was modeled after this method.
Imam Muslim, author of Sahīh Muslim, explains that there are cases in Islam which telling a lie is permissible:
Humaid b. ‘Abd al-Rahman b. ‘Auf reported that his mother Umm Kulthum daughter of ‘Uqba b. Abu Mu’ait, and she was one amongst the first emigrants who pledged allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him), as saying that she heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: A liar is not one who tries to bring reconciliation amongst people and speaks good (in order to avert dispute), or he conveys good. Ibn Shihab said 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).
The Religion of Peace believes it can bring people together by stretching the truth: Muslims are permitted to lie in time of war; but in most cases deception is the cause of war in the first place. In order to restore broken marriages, lying is also encouraged; but in most cases deception is the cause of a broken home. Where does this sequence of lying end and integrity begin?
Here we see that the god of Islam is not powerful enough to work in the hearts and minds of his people to bring about a peaceful resolve without using fraud. When the truth fails, the religion of Islam is permitted to resort to trickery and shams.
Muslims tell us they are a religion of peace. Are they telling us the truth or not? Action speaks louder than words.
