Does the Quran teach ‘love, peace and harmony’ with other religions or are so-called ‘Islamic extremists,’ merely carrying out the literal proclamations of the prophet Muhammad? Are ongoing terrorist attacks around the globe the work of extremists or merely those compliant with the ideology of Muhammad? Does the Quran condemn or encourage the slaughter of innocents in the name of Allah (their God)? Join Carl now, as he reads key passages from the Quran and Hadith, and lets you decide for yourself…

Here is a complete transcript of the podcast (below)…

Friend, remember a few weeks back when I introduced the religion of Islam to you; how it started in the Arabian dessert and described its founder Ubu’l Kassim (also known as Mohammad) who was born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in 570 AD. May I also remind you that the term Allah stemmed from the pantheon of deities worshiped by the local Bedouins in the vicinity of Arabia. So frustrated in fact was Mohammad that he stripped Mecca of all these other deities leaving one which he called “Allah” and this stone, which bears his name, is still housed within the Kaaba to this very day. By worshiping this idol of stone within the black and white box in Mecca, they’ve exchanged the worship of the creator for the creation, as Romans chapter one warns us against. But today friend, we’re going to switch gears and talk about what is actually written within the pages of the Quran and discuss the very revelations that supposedly spawned from the angel Gabriel and transcribed by Muhammad, over a 20-year period. But friend this was not the angel Gabriel of the bible because Paul warned us if an angel preached any other Gospel in Gal 1:8, then let them be accursed.

The Cannon of scripture was closed just prior to the turn of the 1st century AD and no new revelations were required. Either Muhammad chose not to heed the warnings of the Apostle Paul or he was totally oblivious to them. In fact, when Islam came on the scene in the 6th century AD, the Bible was locked up in the cloistered recesses of monastery’s all-around Europe and far from the hands of the common people. Only the priest could supposedly read the Bible without going mad and they claimed the common man was simply unable to comprehend the word of God for himself, yet we know now a 12-year-old child can read the bible and understand it. It was during this time of apparent Christian weakness toward the end of the 6th century, when people were in polygamous religious bondage that a fallen angel posing as Gabriel came to the earth, unleashing a religion whose mandate is to kill and destroy and whose writings are housed within the pages of the Quran.

But does the Quran which millions of Muslims hold dear and even on par with the Bible in their eyes, actually teach ‘love, peace and harmony’ with other religions and cultures or are these so-called Islamic extremists that we see on television, actually carrying out the instructions of the prophet Muhammad literally? Could the people who performed the recent terror attacks all across Europe really be extremists or actually compliant with the written instructions and commands of Muhammad. Are they in fact justified in their beliefs by killing innocent men, women and children who are not followers of Allah and where exactly does it say this in their writings?….PAUSE …Friend, this is a very dangerous broadcast today because if I were proclaiming this on the internet or in my homeland of Great Britain it would most assuredly be censored or labeled as ‘hate speech’ by our politically correct media outlets who are often lacking truth, but my only job is to tell you the truth friend and that’s what I’m going to do. Today we’re going to read excerpts from both the Quran and Hadith and I’ll let you decide whether or not Islam is in fact a peaceful religion or not. You’re never going to hear any of these verses from the news reporters who continue to tout the so called, peaceful teachings of Islam.

The reality is that the majority of Moslem’s are peaceful, they want to go about their lives, take their children to school, they have jobs like everyone else but many of these people have likely never read the contents of the Quran for themselves or simply choose not to follow its tenets. The common belief in the news media unfortunately is that Islam is a quote “a peaceful religion”, however if one reads the statues which the Quran harbors, we’ll soon realize that it’s far from peaceful. Once again, we’re not talking about the Moslem people who identify with the book, each person is unique and many devout Moslem’s are peace loving but that’s because they’ve chosen the moral high ground of not talking Mohammad’s words literally. We must make the distinction that fortunately not all Muslims hearken to the literal words of Mohammad, for which we are most grateful.

Most Muslim people could be described as orthodox, moderate, traditional, or even tolerant and they don’t agree with many of the radical verses within the Quran or Hadith. Now the Quran is the most Holy book regarded by Moslem’s and the Hadith is a record of the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. In Arabic Hadith literally means, “to report”, and is also a major source of religious law and moral guidance for Moslem’s second only to the Quran, considered the most Holy Book of Islam. You could say the Hadith is basically a biography of Muhammad perpetuated by those that surrounded him and recorded by observers. However, the Quran is the recitation of the so-called inspired words of Muhammad, received from the angel Gabriel, but like I said he’s no angel from Almighty God, but merely an imposter who came to deceive mankind by creating ‘another Gospel,’ and the world has been reeling in terror ever since.

Let us now examine the contents of the Quran itself. Now the Quran is split by many surah’s or chapter’s, some of which I will quote for you now and if you’ve never heard these verses before friend, buckle your seat belt because some of those will no doubt shock you to the bone:

Quran (2:216) – Fighting is prescribed for you, and you dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. Here’s another quote…

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists in general, yet it also includes Christians.

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve (Islam). Therefore, strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”...wow friend it doesn’t get any more explicit than that does it? The beheading of people has long been a tradition within Islam and comes from this very verse right here.

Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”Those who follow Christ however friend love people in the name of Jesus, Jesus never called us to fight. He asked us to love unconditionally and turn the other cheek, turning away from violent acts.

Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter, they shall have a grievous chastisement.”

Absolutely Incredible, the complete and justifiable sanctioned murder of innocents for the cause of Allah as recorded by the bloodthirsty Muhammad makes us realize why these Islamic terrorists take their lives and the lives of others as they’re simply obeying the clear mandate outlined by their sacred text. Here’s some more verses calling to fight:

Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

Quran (9:41) – Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.”

Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

Now let me also share with you, some verses from the Hadith, which comprise of the sayings of Muhammad:

Sahih Bukhari (52:220) – Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious with terror.’

Sahih Muslim (31:5918): “I will fight them until they are like us.

Tabari 9:69: “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us.”

Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992:“Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.”

Sahih Bukhari (52:177): Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

Friend I could go on and on with numerous quotes either from the Quran or Hadith, instructing its followers to kill unbelievers and fight in the name of Allah but don’t take my word for it, do your own research, grab a copy of the Quran and look these verses up for yourself as I have done. You will quickly realize I am quoting verbatim the very words of Muhammad and his blood thirsty agenda to conquer by the sword, so much so in fact that the Hadith outlines that, “Paradise is under the shades of swords’… The problem friend is not bad people but bad ideology. The teachings of Islam breed nothing but confusion, a lack of acceptance by God, not knowing whether they will reach heaven or not as it is a works-based religion. Allah is capricious, indifferent, unreliable, distant and abstract.

By my count there are over 100 verses in the Quran alone that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of establishing Islamic rule or sharia law within the land they inhabit and they are not conformist to the laws of the land but seek to establish their own. Muhammad exposes those who are not willing to chop off the heads or fingers of unbelievers as hypocrites and Allah will send them to Hell unless they’re willing to take up the fight. Muslim nations are well known for their brutal attacks on other religions in their countries and it all stems from the creed they follow. If the literal interpretation of Muhammad’s sayings is accepted then jihad or war with unbelievers is clearly perpetual and sanctioned by him as an act of obedience to the ever-bloodthirsty Allah, whose sacrifice for the innocents is seemingly unrelenting. Mohammad claimed that the Bible was corrupted by the Jews and Christians and is not reliable, only his Quran is the true word of God. Yet within its pages it instructs that killing non-believers is totally warrant-able, with their value being on par with that of a dog or a cow. In fact, the only dictate is to wage war or jihad with the non-believers, to which there is no end.

Friend if you scour the Quran, you’ll find very few verses that teach on peace or tolerance with others. Their religion if taken word for word, is one most assuredly one of conquest by the sword and when you see Islamic terrorists shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ as they commit murder suicide, they’re literally taking Muhammad at his word in killing unbelievers. Right now, there’s a new war waging within the borders of Europe as it did long ago. In 732 AD Charles Martel withheld the invading Muslims at the Battle of Tours and stopped the progress of Islam in Europe. The crusades ran from the 11th century until the end of the 13th century. Millions of people suffered and died on both sides, yet today that crusade is rising again within the very borders of sovereign nations and by those who are even citizens of those nations.

Yet now today we see Muslims living amongst us and once again the majority are peaceful people yet there will always be an element who’ll take up the sword for Allah. In my nation of Great Britain, perhaps only 2% of people are ‘born again’ and have chosen to put their faith in Christ. It saddens me greatly that Britain has abandoned its Christian heritage and in doing so, this vacuum has been filled by elements of radical Muslim extremists that are almost impossible to identify before the terrorist incidents occur. The truth is it’s a spiritual battle firstly which eventually manifests in the natural realm and because Europe has given herself over to secularism the spiritual battle is being lost. Right now, there are over 700,000 Muslims in London alone and they now have over 300 mosques in the city and counting. Many old churches are being converted to mosques and the people are indifferent because to them Christianity is as inept as the archaic and dilapidated structures it once housed, whereas Muslims remain passionate for the cause of Allah and are surprised by the apathy of the British people to their own religion of Christianity. The truth is the Gospel was meant for all mankind, not just Christians. In our everyday lives we need to love on Muslims, let them know there is a true and almighty God who wants to know them intimately and they don’t need to slay anyone to be assured of a passage to heaven.
