“Correct Teachings Needed”
Another ‘Wrong Kind of Muslim’ attack against the Ahmadiyya sect â€“ this time in in Moderate, Progressiveâ„¢ Indonesia:
The military denied on Tuesday that it had ordered the Siliwangi command in West Java to encourage mainstream Muslims to occupy Ahmadiyah mosques and preach “the true path” of Islam. The Ahmadiyya in Indonesia are brutally repressed and abused from the government down â€“Â as evidenced here (source)
He was “not devout”, Â sez wifey:
“Moderate Muslim Females” Promoting ‘Moderation’
But this is the same guy whose father said hadÂ called him an “infidel.” So take this with a grain of salt or two. “Suspected Bomber ‘Not a Devout Muslim,’ Wife Says,” by Farouk Arnaz for theÂ Jakarta Globe, April 18
“O ye who believe! take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong. Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline: or the dwellings in which ye delight, are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause, then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious.” — Qur’an 9:23-24
The mainstream Qur’an commentator Ibn Kathir explains: “Allah commands shunning the disbelievers, even if they are one’s parents or children, and prohibits taking them as supporters if they choose disbelief instead of faith.” Another renowned Islamic authority, Ibn Juzayy, notes that Qur’an 9:24, with its warning that one should value nothing in this life higher than Allah, is “a threat to anyone who prefers his family, property or home to emigration and jihad.” “Emigration” to infidel lands in order to spread Islam, that is.
As we have seen in the case ofÂ Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar and many others, any Muslim believer can read the Qur’an and decide that he has a responsibility to wage jihad warfare against unbelievers. There is simply no way to make sure that that will not happen, even if it only happens once in a great while, because of the Qur’an’s many plain exhortations to do just that.
