A truth about Islam billboard disparaging the Prophet Muhammad that can be seen from the southbound lanes of I-465 on the east side is drawing concern from local Muslims. Islamic leaders in Indianapolis are challenging those responsible for what they say are offensive and untrue statements to stand by their words, shed their anonymity and explain their motivations. (ALL the statements are true)
IndyStar (h/t Emma) “It is a horrible billboard. I’m outraged by it, but saddened at the same time … and I would like to know who is behind it,” said Rima Shahid, executive director of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana. “It seems very cowardly to me. If you have some kind of stance, you should want to stand up next to your statement. I didn’t think there was any room for hate in our city. This billboard tells me otherwise.
“This kind of rhetoric just furthers division in our state and makes a neighbor question a neighbor, just like I am today.”
At the bottom of the billboard in yellow sits the words “Educate Truthophobes.” A search of Truthophobes online leads to multiple anti-Muslim groups, specifically an Australian group with similar messaging.
Indiana MUSLIM representative Andre Carson said he believes the billboard is untrue and that the billboard’s author takes Islamic text and history out of context “just like Al-Qaeda, ISIS and the Klan do to religious texts to justify their bigotry.”
And here is proof that the billboard speaks the truth. Let’s start a campaign to have these billboards in every city in America.
h/t Islam Exposed
Muslims & Dhimmis are bitterly bitching about a billboard which they imply is dissing Moe. Examine it carefully: Is he mentioned by name on the billboard? Is Islam mentioned? How do those critics connect the billboard to their Profit???
The perfect man
Who is “the perfect man”?
I quote Wikiislam:
“In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad is known as al-Insān al-Kāmil(the perfect human) and uswa hasana (an excellent model of conduct). “
Where? The Qur’an!
33:21. Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much. If you want to get into Jannah, you’t better meet Allah on good terms when Judgment Day rolls around. So who should you emulate and what did he do?
Married a six year old
While Khadija was alive, Moe did not dare to take another wife. After her death, he married Sauda, a widow. Shortly thereafter, he married the six year old daughter of his bosom buddy, Abu Bakr. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I direct doubters, dissenters & deniers to this blog post which quotes the muttawir ahadith relevant to the marriage to Aisha:
Imran Firasat created a graphic novel based on the story, watch it here: http://islamexposed.blogspot.com/2014/07/aisha-and-muhammad-dramatic-life-of.html
No, it ain’t on the billboard, would not fit. Moe did not consummate the marriage until Aisha was nine years old. In the interim, he was practicing
Mufakhathat. He was thighing the little girl! Read about it here, including a link to a fatwa permitting thighing ‘cuz it is sunnah!
Beheaded 600 Jews in one day
The number is inexact ‘cuz the records only give us a range. I quote Wikiislam:
“The Jews were made to come down, and Allah’s Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina, and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men.”
The quote is from Guillaume’s translation which you can read here. The story is told in Sahih Bukhari.
Slave owner and dealer
A slave owner had declared his will that his slave be emancipated on his death. Moe seized the slave and sold him. read about it in Sahih Bukhari . Moe owned a black slave, read about it in vol. 8.
The Profit had nine wives and used to “visit them all in one night” meaning he had sex with all of them. Read about it in vol. 7. Read more about his wives here.
Sad but true. He took sex slaves from among the captives. Safiya was one of them.
Tortured & killed unbelievers
Safiya, whose rape was mentioned above, was the bride of Kinanna, chief of the Jewish settlement at Khaibar Oasis. Moe had him tortured to discover the location of their gold. When Kinanna remained silent, Moe had him killed. Read about it in The Life Of Muhammad. Wikiislam quotes it:
Kinana b. al-Rabi’, who had the custody of the treasure of the B. al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (Tabari says “was brought”) to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, ‘Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?’ he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave ordrs to al-Zubayr b. al-‘Awwam, ‘Torture him until you extract what he has,’ so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head in revenge for his brother Mahmud.
The story is on page 515.
In Islamic law, slander is “anything the hearer might not like”, the hearer being the subject. Moe is dead; he can’t hear what is on that billboard and can not see it. In Islamic law, truth is not a defense against accusations of slander. But we are not under Islamic law. Not yet.
