It takes a nation to protect the nation
The lexicon of Islamic terms on the homepage is taken from documents of the OIC or from the QSHUT or canonical texts of Islam. The forum header contains a brief definition, then a later post gives further description and scripture references, if required. The Islamic use of a term on 4F may be indicated by upper case.
Fascist Enablers use our words with different meanings, commonly because it allows them to equivocate around pejorative terms or difficult issues. Therefore, before you join any media discussion or public debate, you must get agreement on which definitions are being used.
(1) Nationally: Occurs as an orchestrated day-of-rage around an incident of Islamophobia, to further the enforcement of the Islamic law on slander.
(2) Personally: Occurs when a non-Muslim speaker has exhibited Islamophobia:Islamic
Rape as a concept does not exist in Islam as we understand it, the closest it gets is forced 'zina' (adultery). Islamic law does not consider rape a separate legal category but places it together with other sex acts outside of the marriage/right hand possession contract. Islam allows for various forms of rape and in some cases (hanafi school) explicitly condones it in the case of marital rape. Rape in islam (ightisab) is a property crime and cannot by definition be committed by the husband against his own property such as his wife or slave.
It is obligatory for a woman to let her husband have sex with her immediately when:
(a) he asks her
(b) at home (O: home meaning the place in which he is currently staying, even if being lent to him or rented)
(c) and she can physically endure it
O: Another condition that should be added is that her marriage payment (mahr, def: m8) has been received or deferred to a term not yet expired
As for when sex with her is not possible, such that having it would entail manifest harm to her, then she is not obliged to comply. If she asks him to wait, she is awaited, to a maximum of three days (O: She does not ask to wait because of not having finished her period or postnatal bleeding, for there is not physical harm entailed in her complying as she is, though if she fears that such foreplay with him will lead to actual copulation (A: which is unlawful under such circumstances), then she may refuse, as that is not obligatory). (n: w45 discusses wives' other duties to husbands.)
Manifest harm would be decided by a Sharia court. A Hanafi judge takes a more severe view than a Shafi'i fiq one:
"For the Hanafis, a wife's sexual refusal was not grounds for loss of maintenance. However, this was because she was still considered "available" to her husband; he was entitled to force her to have intercourse."

See the dictionary definition:
So this term which cannot be applied to Muslims, because, as Muslims follow the one true religion, they are perfectly entitled to be intolerant and contemptuous of other religions.
Hello Alan, I am working with the ROTT to "Reveal the Sharia" through a series of graphic images with definitions and readings of law straight from the sharia. This link is on slander (Ghiba, r 2.2, page 730). Slow going, but hope to have a couple dozen by the end of the year.

Any true statement about Islam that offends Muslims.
We're hearing a lot of it at the moment with regard to the film "The Innocence of Muslims". Apparently the portrayal of Muhammad as a paedophile because of his consummation with Aisha is slanderous.
A non-combatant, as long as he is also INNOCENT (as shown by Muhammad's night raid on the Banu Mustaliq)
OPPRESSION (of Muslims)
If you do not grant preferential treatment to Muslims, in the form of privileges and concessions, as authorised and required by Sharia Law, then you are oppressing them.
Aggression: (against islam) To refuse to revert back to Islam when offered the chance.
Khamenei characterizes the Islamic war against Israel as "jihad," while Muslims fighting against each other is "terrorism." Islamic supremacist groups condemn "terrorism," but by it they do not mean violent actions by Muslims against Infidels -- that's not terrorism, it's jihad.
Rightist / Far Rights
Normally used for anyone the speaker disagrees with, whether they are Socialist, Black, or whatever, as in this article:
After spending the whole article teaching us that the ANC have total control of the country and nobody else has any hope of getting a look in, the Economist says:
The best hope for the country in years to come is a real split in the ANC between the populist left and the fat-cat right to offer a genuine choice for voters.
But hang on: the ANC leadership are black aren't they? And they are allegedly "for the people", socialist? But the Leftists have to call them Right Wing because, that's their term for anybody they disagree with.
So, next time someone calls you Right Wing, ask them: "Are you saying I'm a black socialist?"
