The Danger in Islamic Prayer

“Love thy neighbor” should not be a one-way street.

The Danger in Islamic Prayer
by Sonia Bailley

Before sharing their places of worship, it is crucial that Westerners discover what Muslims are saying when they recite the Islamic mandatory prayers. A few days ago, an Ontario synagogue invited Muslim worshippers to lead the Friday prayer. This article explains what the Islamic daily prayers mean, with focus on the Friday prayer within the context of Islamic law or sharia. Being better informed will make Westerners think twice before opening the doors to Muslim for prayer.

Canadian Muslims in southern Ontario were invited to preach the supremacy of Islam at a local synagogue and church. In a goodwill gesture, Peterborough’s Mark Street United Church and Beth Israel Synagogue opened their doors to Muslims for prayer following the recent fire damage of the Masjid al-Salaam mosque. The president of the Beth Israel Synagogue and his board of directors hosted two Islamic prayer sessions this past Friday with not even a suspicion that the underlying theme in Islamic prayer is to curse and do away with nonbelievers like them.

A deep hatred and rejection of Judaism and Christianity are hardwired into Islamic doctrine, including the Koran. Many of its chapters are incorporated into mandatory daily Islamic prayer. The very first Koranic chapter, considered the most exalted of all chapters, is a prayer directed to Allah asking him to keep Muslims away from the misguided path of Jews and Christians. This chapter is a necessary part of the five mandatory daily prayers, and is recited not once, but anywhere from 17 to 100 times a day by devout Muslims (or in a broader sense, 6,200 to 36,500 times a year).

Repetition priming inculcates the notion of superiority over non-Muslims into the minds of all Muslims, instilling a deep mistrust of non-Muslims: “Guide us along the right path, the path of those whom you favored (referring to Muslims), and not along the path of those who earn your anger (referring to Jews), or those who go astray(referring to Christians). The references to Jews and Christians are in accord with Al-Tirmidhi’s authentic hadiths (or Islamic narrations attributed to Mohammed) and other venerated Islamic interpretations, as reflected in some English translations of the Koran.

Friday prayers also include recitation of Koranic chapters 62 and 63 where Jews who reject Allah’s commandments in the Torah are loathed and compared to “the likeness of a donkey carrying books but understands them not.” Jews are told to “long for death” if they pretend to be Allah’s favorite. Nonbelievers are condemned to a state of error until Mohammed is sent by Allah to purify them “from the filth of disbelief and polytheism” with his verses or revelations from Allah. “Hypocrites” or apostates from Islam are considered enemies, “so beware of them, may Allah destroy them!”. Is it any wonder why many Muslims are prohibited from being friends with Jews and Christians? In nearly 500 verses the Koran condemns them to hell (which melts their skin and bellies) for not believing in Mohammed and for not converting to Islam.

Such are the prayers that are recited over and over again in mosques, and now in some churches and synagogues across the world as more Muslim communities continue to grow and expand. Oblivious to the ignorant Jewish and Christian hosts — whom the Koran portrays as sons of apes and pigs and as the worst of creatures — those very same prayers were recently recited by the Peterborough mosque’s muezzin (one who recites the Islamic call to prayer) in the local church and synagogue. His sonorous and somber voice evoked emotion and tears expressing compassion and admiration of Islam during the Islamic prayer session at the Mark Street United Church a couple of Fridays ago.

Little did these people know that he was chanting verses expressing disgust and disdain for nonbelievers, such as themselves. They appeared to be in a trancelike stupor as if undergoing a spiritual awakening — despite not understanding one word of Arabic prayer that calls for their rejection and eradication due to their misguided behavior. If they only knew what Islamic prayers meant in English, they would not be shedding tears of ignorance, and would certainly think twice before allowing Muslims to pray in their places of worship. “Love thy neighbor” should not be a one-way street.

  1. “Referring to Judaism and Islam, Kenzu Abdella, the president of the Kawartha Muslim Religious Association (in the Peterborough area near Toronto) who formed an alliance with Larry Gillman, the President of the Beth Israel Synagogue, informed the Canadian Broadcasting Cooperation that “we have more similarities than differences. We have so much common”.

    “Contrary to his claim, the differences are so great that 57 Islamic states united in the highly influential Organization of Islamic Cooperation rejected the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that views all people as equal and free, and replaced it with the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam (CDHRI) that views people as neither equal nor free.”

    Yes,this is the key thing that every person should consider.Why does OIC not agree to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ?

    1. Why does OIC not agree to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ?

      Simple. If you put Islam above everything else, it means that Islam rules according to shari’a and unbelievers are given three choices.

  2. Agree absolutely about the Declaration of Human Rights. If the religious values were universal, it would be no problem for OIC countries to sign up to it. Someone needs to make more of this.

    But also, and I can never understand why religious orgs don’t make a fuss about it, why is that no one ever talks about how Islam is blasphemy against Christianity and Judaism?

    We hear so much about how ‘offended’ muslims are because we are ‘blasphemous’ to their faith, but their whole ideology is based on heresy; a heretical hodgepodge made up of other religions and beliefs. The Koran is essentially a plagiarised, bastardised, and perverted version of the Talmud/Bible.

    As it doesn’t take a minute to find the evidence of which came first and is therefore the progenitor, it should be mentioned each and every time muslims kick-off about us blaspheming against them.

    Salat: Prayer

    Salat is Islamic prayer and consists of five daily prayers.

    All of these prayers are recited while facing in the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca.

    Five times every day, a doctrinaire Muslim must pray for non-Muslims—referred to as Kafirs—to suffer.

    The chauvinistic prayers of Muslims are recited as follows:

    First Prayer: O, Allah, we ask You for help and seek Your forgiveness. And we believe in You and have trust in You. And we praise You in the best way. And we thank You and are not ungrateful to You.

    And we forsake and turn away from the Kafirs.

    O, Allah, we worship You only and pray to You and prostrate ourselves before You. And we run towards You and serve You. And we hope to receive Your mercy. And we fear Your punishment. Surely the Kafirs will receive Your punishment.

    Second Prayer: O, Allah, verily we seek Your help. We believe in You, we put our trust in You, and we praise You, and we are not ungrateful to You. Oh Allah, You alone do we worship, and to You we pray and prostrate. For Your sake, we strive. We hope for Your mercy and fear Your punishment, for Your punishment will surely reach the Kafirs.

    O, Allah, punish the Kafirs of the People of the Book [proselytizing Christians] who are preventing others from following Your way.

    Third Prayer: In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful, all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the World, the Beneficent, the Merciful, Master of the Day of Judgment. You do we serve, and You do we beseech for help. Keep us on the right path—the path of those upon whom You have bestowed favors. Not the path of those upon whom Your wrath is brought down [Jews], nor those who go astray [Christians].

    Islam is the only “religion” whose prayers emphatically curse all unbelievers. Actually, Islam is more properly considered an ideology, rather than a religion; for Islam promotes activities considered to be condemnable by the moral standards of most world religions: assassination, honor-killings, pedophilia, slavery, sex-trafficking, wife-beating, and so forth. So illegal are these traditional undertakings of Islam that Islam should not be allowed classification as a religion in the United States, with all the First-Amendment protections thereto appertaining. Islam should be classified as a criminal enterprise and its scofflaw adherents brought up on racketeering charges and the like, whenever possible, in order to safeguard Americans from their violent ways.

    1. “The Dinner Table”
      [5.51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

  4. The Muslim pray for the “Moon God” not to the genuine God. They are damned and doomed. (
