Fartwa: Death to Those Who Will Not Pray

Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan: Any Muslim Who Refuses to Pray Is an Infidel, and Must Be Killed (Translating Jihad)
Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan, a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars, explains in this short fatwa that any Muslim who refuses to pray has become an infidel, and therefore must be killed.

You’re either in or out.  Muhammad himself used to burn  the huts of those who did not come to prayer:

Muhammad the firebug:


“I would order someone to collect firewood and another to lead prayer. Then I would go burn the houses of men who did not present themselves at the compulsory prayer and prostration.”

In Saudi Arabia, Renewed Discussion On Fatwa Permitting The Killing Of Coworkers Who Do Not Pray (MEMRI) on a tip from Vlad

A 2009 fatwa by Saudi Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, which permits an employee to kill his coworker if he does not pray, has reappeared in discussion on Internet message boards and social networks.

Extremist fatwas such as this raise the question of whether they should be issued by individual clerics, or by groups of clerics such as the Saudi Association of Senior Clerics – Saudi Arabia’s official religious institution.

  1. Getting closer to the time when Beast worship will be mandatory:

    And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (Revelation 13:15)

  2. Just goes to show, not many would stay in Islam if not forced to in a myriad of ways, always through fear.

  3. Coincidentally, Gates of Vienna posted a very relevant thread about Islamic prayer titled:
    The Kinetic Effects of Prayer in Islam

    “Islam is nothing if not militant. . .In mosque ritual the kinetic aspects of bowing and praying in tandem with others have distinctive effects on brain and mood. I experienced these results myself, without having internalized the belief system. In Islam, it’s about behavior shaping belief.

    Bowing and touching your head to the ground repeatedly instills a sense of capitulation and surrender of the will. As a student of yoga I compare it to the Downward Facing Dog position. However, in Islamic ritual, this movement is accompanied by chanting Arabic of Koranic scripture, followed by a “religious rap” of one’s head on the ground.
    The repeated rhythmic lowering of head to ground has different results from other religions’ prayer forms. I have experienced the kinetic affect of Christian prayer, Muslim prayer and Yoga; each one seems to have its own affect on the brain.

    Christian prayer directs the mind-body movement upwards, leading to an individual and uplifted energized experience. When Christians bow their heads it is voluntary — or as you put it so well, Dymphna, “obedience is not submission”. For Christians this sign can be directed out toward others, as a sign our mutual coexistence in community.

    Muslim prayer primarily directs us downward. Think of bowing to the king in subservience — or, in this case, submission to Allah. Finishing the prayer cycle, I was standing level-headed, my energy redirected now to confront the non-believer. The once a week group prayer unifies this outward energy.

    No wonder this form of prayer was a common activity before battle! It is not individual spiritual cleansing but group movement outward to conquer. This is why mass street prayer is occurring in Paris and other European cities. It is not just about the public message of dominance; more importantly it is what they’ve done and said to themselves. This is a preparation for the street battles to come.”

    In essence, if the Saudi Muslim refuses to pray, he refuses to enter battle.

    While the Old and new Testaments concern themselves with the love and teachings of God and Christ, the Qur’an instead expends considerable effort demonizing other religions and the people who practice them (see CSPI’s Statistical Islam).

    Further, a pious Muslim who prays the five requisite daily prayers of Islam will recite the Fatiha (first sura) seventeen times in the course of those prayers – EACH AND EVERY DAY.

    As Wafa Sultan states in her book “A God Who Hates”: “This verse describes Christians as “those who have gone astray” and Jews as “those who have incurred Your wrath.” We see from this that Muslims execrate Christians and Jews a number of times in the course of a single prayer, which they repeat five times a day.”
    execrate –verb
    1. to detest utterly; abhor; abominate.
    2. to curse; imprecate evil upon; damn; denounce

    see also Spencer: Blogging the Qur’an: Sura 1, “The Opening”

    Islamic prayer is pure indoctrination to hate, building the foundation of hate enabling the training for violence.

    Why is this so difficult to comprehend? Islam is not about peace. Islam is about triumphalism and submission of all.
    LAN ASTASLEM (Arabic: لن استسلم )
    Know Islam = No Peace.
    No Islam = Know Peace.

    I DON’T PAY !

    Hurry up ! The waiting is killing me !!!

    M/F !

    P.S.— Uh ! He will pay !…
    HE MUST PAY !!!

  5. in islam u cant force people to do anything this is written in the Quran so there for what he is saying is a sin

  6. REALLY Greg!!!!!! Why don’t you convince your fellow mohammedans that YOUR interpretation is the correct one!!

  7. Islam is the only true way one should follow…It is the way that is accepted by Allah…So who does not pray is actually destroying himself

  8. Saif, of course islam is accepted by allah…allah is the devil, and islam is the devil’s religion. You need to learn this simple fact.

    You’d be so much better off praying to the God of the Christians and the Jews, and also acknowledging Jesus as the true messiah of mankind.

    Also, just remember what your alledged ‘prophet’ mohammed did to Aisha when she was only 9 years old, or do you like that particular episode of his life? Sicko.

  9. * in islam u cant force people to do anything

    Not according to allah and its false prophet:

    [Sura 9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

    Forced to pay into allah’s protection racket & kept in subjection.

    Time for allah’s racket posing as a “religion of peace” to be shut down, and the henchmen eliminated.

  10. * Islam is the only true way one should follow…

    Really Saif? Follow islam at your eternal peril – death and hell is its end-point, and there are alternate routes to hell for anyone so inclined.
    islam is simply the HOV Lane on the highway to Hell.

    Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me. (John 14:6)

    allah lied. People died.
