Key Info

On this page are short essays (mostly one page each) that I have written (click view all) .

The format for each is the scripture source from the either the Qur'an or hadith, followed by an explanation of these sources and sometimes a comment.

This format was partly inspired by a friend who kept asking me questions re Islam. But he wanted answers that would fit on one page only, so that he could easily print it out and distribute to his friends. I am attempting a sort of an ‘Islam-lite’ series!

Also, the world-wide-web is full of long essays on Islam of varying degrees of quality. These tiles do not tax the reader with too much to read too quickly.

What I tried to achieve with all these is first and foremost accuracy. Is what I say correct? Also, given the limited space, have I highlighted the main aspects of a particular subject, leaving out nothing of significance in order of priority? That is, are the most significant aspects mentioned as opposed to the less significant? I try to let the sources speak for themselves, with only a little help from me.

Please note that I am not attempting to write about what individual Muslims actually believe, there are too many of them! I am writing and learning about what Islam teaches Muslims to believe. This is a crucial difference. I am not saying that all Muslims believe what Islam teaches; on the contrary many are unaware of that teaching. But to the degree that teachings affect beliefs and behaviour, it is important to understand those teachings.

When discussing Islam, often Muslims and many non-Muslims raise comparisons with Christianity. Making such comparisons in these papers is not my purpose. But I will say that while Christianity focuses on the Word (John 1:1), Islam focuses on words; and these words are accessible to understanding. The words of the Qur'an are the closest equivalent to the Word in Christianity. Knowing and understanding the words of Islam (the Qur'an and Hadith) is the sum total of Islamic belief.

At the demo yesterday in London this was heard:

In one particularly disturbing clip, male demonstrators were seen shouting “Khayber Khayber ya yaud jadish al Mohammed sauf yaud” through a megaphone.

The anti-Semitic chant, which references a seventh-century battle in which Jewish people were massacred by a Muslim army, translates as: “Khaybar Khaybar, O Jews, Muhammad’s army will return.”

Excellent discussion here.

Christian Concern with Tim Dieppe and Beth Peltola. 

Good afternoon and welcome to today's Round The Table. 

We're looking at the increasing influence of Islam around the UK.

It follows the arrest of Christian evangelist Hatun Tash, the film Lady of Heaven being cancelled and a report on grooming gangs in Telford, which has failed to discuss the Islamic connection.

Death of non-Muslims

According to the public prosecutor, it was not that Gökmen T. wanted to (kill) as many victims as possible, rather to kill as many non-Muslims as possible.

This guy killed 4 and wounded 7.  And the prosecutor and his own family calls him a 'part time Muslim.'

Good idea Ruhannah.  I will work on that!  And also add to these tiles.

These writings by Kinana are brilliant in their accessibility. They cut through all the obfuscation  that academia surrounds the study of Islam.

It would be great to collate these into an online book, available on Amazon. I think the younger generation being forced to attend madrassahs after school, would welcome this rational voice - it would certainly sustain them in their journey of becoming an ex-Muslim !

Excellent information. Ive printed the lot out and will be reading every essay. Thanks people.
Comment by Kinana on June 9, 2010 at 22:16

i heartily recommend your 2 page essay of 'All Islam'. I am more wordy than you i suppose! but even a shorter piece can be found at this discussion

To provide different readers with the right amount of information in the right format will vary tremendously so it is important that many of us are involved in this pedogogy. Different strokes/styles for different folks!

Hello Gatou - Thank you for your 2 page analysis...Brilliant juxtaposing of quotes and presentation of facts - helping to reveal the truth....
The sad and tragic fact is that the vast majority of people brought up in Muslim settings, are manipulated into sacrificing the exercise of their reason, to the fundamental human need to belong... What I mean is, the instinct for love and loyalty is manipulated into ultimately servicing the maintenance and the upholding of this long-dead megalomaniac, Mohammed. We could say, each human society has been composed of elements that are tyrannical and exploitative...and different mechanisms have been used to maintain the domination of those elements... Those hungry for power always appeal to a higher authority to justify their rule... and in that sense, Muhammed institutionalised a set of rules that give people people of his ilk, of every generation, that power.... With the power of the internet, and the protection of anonymity, the appeals to the faculty of feason and justice in all, will surely, ultimately, win through. Hopefully. FIngers crossed. God willing : )

Sorry kinana here is "all islam in 2 pages". I know you wished a 1-page document only but it's printable on one sheet=2 pages.

It's enough to be successful when you face a muslim even though he is an imam.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
