WHY ISIS MADE "RAPE" PART OF THEIR IDEOLOGY

WHY ISIS MADE "RAPE" PART OF THEIR IDEOLOGY

I was reading a news item published by "Daily Star", UK which said that ISIS made rape a part of their ideology as Quran promotes raping non-believer women. you can read the news item here
https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/459184/ISIS-rape-Terror-capture-Yazidi-victim-Muslim-Islam.

Another similar news item says that 
"He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God," a 12-year-old rape victim told The New York Times.

And a small video


Earlier I used to believe that all the Jihadi Groups are mis-interpreting Quran and Quran does not promote violence or rape. But later on as my understanding of Quran improved and I started studying Quran then it became disturbingly clear for me, because Quran was nothing like I used to believe it was. I found it completely opposite to  my previous beliefs, full of enmity and hatred for the non-believers which I used to believe were the creatures of Allah. My beliefs were simple that all the humans /non-humans are the creation of Allah and Allah does not discriminate among them as He provides food to everyone, he showers rain on believer's  or non believers' crops equally. He wants every living being to survive till the time determined by Him. But Allah is nothing like that , Allah hates non-believers (Quran 3.32) ,Allah curses Jews and Christians (Quran 9.30), Allah orders Muslims to kill non-believers(Quran 9.29) this idea of cursing, hating and ordering Muslims to kill non-believers is completely opposite to the reality that can be seen in the world. If Allah does not want non-believers to live then why is He feeding them, providing them with food, raining on their crops supporting the Christians to be the leaders of the world in all kind of development while on the other hand Allah is not supporting His own followers which causes them to stay behind on the development scores. If everything is in control of Allah then he can do anything but it turns out that Allah is unable to control anything thus relieves himself of the anger  by cursing non-believers and ordering Muslims to kill them Meaning thereby Allah is dependent on the actions of his followers in order to affect the world at large. Whenever you go to any mosque to offer prayers, you will find the imaam (One who leads the prayers)  inciting and provoking Muslims to take stand and confront non-believers in the fulfillment of duty ordained by Allah on every Muslim, why, because once again, Allah is dependent on Muslims in order to cause a change in the world.

This went a little out of context but its was suffocating me from inside so i am letting it out as a food for thought for everyone. Now coming back to the topic of the day.

1)Rape of  Non Believer Women in Prophet Muhammad's Time 
In the times of Prophet Muhammad it was a routine matter for Muslims to attack Jewish or Christian communities and Rape their women or enslave them. 

Abu Sa’id Al Khudri said “The Apostle of Allaah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of Apostle of Allaah  were reluctant to have relations with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So, Allaah the exalted sent down the Qur’anic verse “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand posses.” This is to say that they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.( Sunan Abi Dawood 2155, Book Reference : Book.12 Hadith.110, English Translation :Book 11, Hadith 2150)

In this hadith, The Quanic verse which has been mentioned, allowing Muslims to have relations with captive women, is  Chapter 4 verse 24 which says something like this..

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess(captive women). [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property,desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.

In This Video you can see the ISIS fighter starting from the same verse of quran 


Another hadith
Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (Allah her pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hanain Allah's Messenger sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah's Messenger (may peace te upon him) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that:
" And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (iv. 24)" (i. e. they were lawful for them when their 'Idda period came to an end).( Sahih Muslim 1456 a, Book Reference : Book 17 , Hadith 41 , English Reference :Book 8, Hadith 3432)

2)Coitus Interruptus with Captive Women
Coitus Interruptus means when someone withdraws the penis before discharge of semen in order to avoid pregnancy.  Now i am gonna mention a hadith in which Muslims invaders were desiring ransom for the women and that's why intending to have coitus interrupus with them.
Muhairiz said “I entered the mosque and saw Abu Sa’id Al Khudri . I sat with him and asked about withdrawing the penis (while having intercourse). Abu Sa’id said We went out with the Apostle of Allaah on the expedition to Banu Al Mustaliq and took some Arab women captive and we desired the women for we were suffering from the absence of our wives and we wanted ransom, so we intended to withdraw the penis (while having intercourse with the slave women). But we asked ourselves “can we draw the penis when the Apostle of Allaah is among us before asking him about it? So we asked him about it. He said “it does not matter if you do not do it, for very soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.”( Sunan Abu Dawood 2172, Book Reference : Book 12 , Haidth 127, English Reference: Book 11, Haidth 2167)
Same Narration is mentioned in another book as 
Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:
I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Sa`id said, "We went out with Allah's Messenger for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah's Messenger who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist."( Sahih Bukhari 4138 , Book Reference : Book 64, Hadith 182, English Reference: Vol.5, Book 59 , Hadith 459)

3)Prophet Muhammad and Safiya
Safiya was the wife of prophet who belonged to a Jewish tribe, During the fight of khaiber, she was captured by the Muslims, along with other women. Her husband was kiled by the Muslims. Her beauty inspired the Prophet Muhammad so much the on his way back from khaiber , in the same night, Prophet Muhammad consummated the marriage. In the civilized world, its called rape, but in the times and according to the teachings of prophet it was marriage.

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
We arrived at Khaibar, and when Allah helped His Apostle to open the fort, the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtaq whose husband had been killed while she was a bride, was mentioned to Allah's Apostle. The Prophet selected her for himself, and set out with her, and when we reached a place called Sidd-as-Sahba,' Safiya became clean from her menses then Allah's Messenger married her. Hais (i.e. an 'Arabian dish) was prepared on a small leather mat. Then the Prophet said to me, "I invite the people around you." So that was the marriage banquet of the Prophet and Safiya. Then we proceeded towards Medina, and I saw the Prophet, making for her a kind of cushion with his cloak behind him (on his camel). He then sat beside his camel and put his knee for Safiya to put her foot on, in order to ride (on the camel).(Sahih Bukhari 4211 Book Reference: Book 64 , Hadith 251 , English Reference :Vol.5 , Book 59 , Hadith 522)


Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet stayed with Safiya bint Huyai for three days on the way of Khaibar where he consummated his marriage with her. Safiya was amongst those who were ordered to use a veil.( Sahih Bukhari 4212 , Book Reference : book 64, hadith 252, English Reference : Vol.5, Book. 59, hadith.523)

4)Prophet Muhammad And Female Slave, Maria 
Prophet Muhammad had a female slave with whom he used to have sex ( Don't forget war captives were used as slaves ) While his wives, Hafsa and Aisha, didn't like that and once he made a pact with his wives that he will not have sex with Maria again but then Allah sent the revelation that why do you forbid yourself from what Allah has allowed for you. Below mentioned is the Hadith and the related verse of Quran


It was narrated from Anas, that the Messenger of Allah had a female slave with whom he had intercourse, but 'Aishah and Hafsah would not leave him alone until he said that she was forbidden for him. Then Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed:
"O Prophet! Why do you forbid (for yourself) that which Allah has allowed to you.' until the end of the Verse.( Sunan Nisai 3959 , Book Reference : Book 36, Hadith 21, English Reference: Vol.4, Book 36, Hadith 3411)

Quran 66 Verse 1

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL

O Prophet, why do you prohibit [yourself from] what Allah has made lawful for you, seeking the approval of your wives? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Tafsir Jalalyn's Commentary on  Quran 66.1
O Prophet! Why do you prohibit what God has made lawful for you, in terms of your Coptic handmaiden Māriya — when he lay with her in the house of Hafsa, who had been away, but who upon returning [and finding out] became upset by the fact that this had taken place in her own house and on her own bed — by saying, ‘She is unlawful for me!’, seeking, by making her unlawful [for you], to please your wives? And God is Forgiving, Merciful, having forgiven you this prohibition.

5)Allah Admonished Wives of Prophet for Restraining him from Sex with Maria.

Allah got angry and admonished Prophet Muhammad for making a pact to refrain from sex with maria. Allah also admonished wives of prophet, Hafsa and Aisha, for restraining him from having sex with Maria. Because of this admonishment, Prophet stayed away from his wives for one month as a punishment for them. Below mentioned hadith is long but narrates the details of this incident.

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Abbas:
I had been eager to ask `Umar about the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet regarding whom Allah said (in the Qur'an saying): If you two (wives of the Prophet namely Aisha and Hafsa) turn in repentance to Allah your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes) (66.4), till performed the Hajj along with `Umar (and on our way back from Hajj) he went aside (to answer the call of nature) and I also went aside along with him carrying a tumbler of water. When he had answered the call of nature and returned. I poured water on his hands from the tumbler and he performed ablution. I said, "O Chief of the believers! ' Who were the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet to whom Allah said: 'If you two return in repentance (66.4)? He said, "I am astonished at your question, O Ibn `Abbas. They were Aisha and Hafsa." Then `Umar went on relating the narration and said. "I and an Ansari neighbor of mine from Bani Umaiya bin Zaid who used to live in `Awali Al-Medina, used to visit the Prophet in turns. He used to go one day, and I another day. When I went I would bring him the news of what had happened that day regarding the instructions and orders and when he went, he used to do the same for me. We, the people of Quraish, used to have authority over women, but when we came to live with the Ansar, we noticed that the Ansari women had the upper hand over their men, so our women started acquiring the habits of the Ansari women. Once I shouted at my wife and she paid me back in my coin and I disliked that she should answer me back. She said, 'Why do you take it ill that I retort upon you? By Allah, the wives of the Prophet retort upon him, and some of them may not speak with him for the whole day till night.' What she said scared me and I said to her, 'Whoever amongst them does so, will be a great loser.' Then I dressed myself and went to Hafsa and asked her, 'Does any of you keep Allah's Messenger angry all the day long till night?' She replied in the affirmative. I said, 'She is a ruined losing person (and will never have success)! Doesn't she fear that Allah may get angry for the anger of Allah's Messenger and thus she will be ruined? Don't ask Allah's Messenger too many things, and don't retort upon him in any case, and don't desert him. Demand from me whatever you like, and don't be tempted to imitate your neighbor (i.e. `Aisha) in her behavior towards the Prophet), for she (i.e. Aisha) is more beautiful than you, and more beloved to Allah's Messenger. In those days it was rumored that Ghassan, (a tribe living in Sham) was getting prepared their horses to invade us. My companion went (to the Prophet on the day of his turn, went and returned to us at night and knocked at my door violently, asking whether I was sleeping. I was scared (by the hard knocking) and came out to him. He said that a great thing had happened. I asked him: What is it? Have Ghassan come? He replied that it was worse and more serious than that, and added that Allah's Apostle had divorced all his wives. I said, Hafsa is a ruined loser! I expected that would happen some day.' So I dressed myself and offered the Fajr prayer with the Prophet. Then the Prophet entered an upper room and stayed there alone. I went to Hafsa and found her weeping. I asked her, 'Why are you weeping? Didn't I warn you? Have Allah's Messenger divorced you all?' She replied, 'I don't know. He is there in the upper room.' I then went out and came to the pulpit and found a group of people around it and some of them were weeping. Then I sat with them for some time, but could not endure the situation. So I went to the upper room where the Prophet was and requested to a black slave of his: "Will you get the permission of (Allah's Apostle) for `Umar (to enter)? The slave went in, talked to the Prophet about it and came out saying, 'I mentioned you to him but he did not reply.' So, I went and sat with the people who were sitting by the pulpit, but I could not bear the situation, so I went to the slave again and said: "Will you get he permission for `Umar? He went in and brought the same reply as before. When I was leaving, behold, the slave called me saying, "Allah's Messenger has granted you permission." So, I entered upon the Prophet and saw him lying on a mat without wedding on it, and the mat had left its mark on the body of the Prophet, and he was leaning on a leather pillow stuffed with palm fires. I greeted him and while still standing, I said: "Have you divorced your wives?' He raised his eyes to me and replied in the negative. And then while still standing, I said chatting: "Will you heed what I say, 'O Allah's Messenger! We, the people of Quraish used to have the upper hand over our women (wives), and when we came to the people whose women had the upper hand over them..." `Umar told the whole story (about his wife). "On that the Prophet  smiled." `Umar further said, "I then said, 'I went to Hafsa and said to her: Do not be tempted to imitate your companion (`Aisha) for she is more beautiful than you and more beloved to the Prophet.' The Prophet smiled again. When I saw him smiling, I sat down and cast a glance at the room, and by Allah, I couldn't see anything of importance but three hides. I said (to Allah's Messenger "Invoke Allah to make your followers prosperous for the Persians and the Byzantines have been made prosperous and given worldly luxuries, though they do not worship Allah?' The Prophet was leaning then (and on hearing my speech he sat straight) and said, 'O Ibn Al-Khattab! Do you have any doubt (that the Hereafter is better than this world)? These people have been given rewards of their good deeds in this world only.' I asked the Prophet. 'Please ask Allah's forgiveness for me. The Prophet did not go to his wives because of the secret which Hafsa had disclosed to `Aisha, and he said that he would not go to his wives for one month as he was angry with them when Allah admonished him (for his oath that he would not approach Maria). When twenty-nine days had passed, the Prophet went to Aisha first of all. She said to him, 'You took an oath that you would not come to us for one month, and today only twenty-nine days have passed, as I have been counting them day by day.' The Prophet said, 'The month is also of twenty-nine days.' That month consisted of twenty-nine days. `Aisha said, 'When the Divine revelation of Choice was revealed, the Prophet started with me, saying to me, 'I am telling you something, but you need not hurry to give the reply till you can consult your parents." `Aisha knew that her parents would not advise her to part with the Prophet . The Prophet said that Allah had said: 'O Prophet! Say To your wives; If you desire The life of this world And its glitter, ... then come! I will make a provision for you and set you free In a handsome manner. But if you seek Allah And His Apostle, and The Home of the Hereafter, then Verily, Allah has prepared For the good-doers amongst you A great reward.' (33.28) `Aisha said, 'Am I to consult my parents about this? I indeed prefer Allah, His Apostle, and the Home of the Hereafter.' After that the Prophet gave the choice to his other wives and they also gave the same reply as `Aisha did."( Sahih Bukhari 2468, Book Reference : Book 46, Hadith 29, English Reference : Vol.3, Book 43, Hadith 648)

6)Conclusion

When Allah has ordained in Quran to abuse the war captives and the Prophet Muhammad has been fulfilling that order wholeheartedly, then how can the followers of the prophet would refrain from that. This is ordained by Quran to rape non-believer women. Because Allah hates non-believers regardless of their Gender. So its allowed for believer men to rape non-believer women because they are lesser humans and the worst of creatures (Quran 98.6).

FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION IN ISLAM


FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION IN ISLAM

Female Genital Mutilation(FGM) is part of Islam. It means total or partial closure of vaginal opening. It is mandatory for women to be circumcised in Islam as have been advise by Prophet Muhammad. The reasons for FGM  in Islam are manifold like keeping the girls from committing fornication, keeping the vagina firm and saving the honour of the family, as in Islam honour of the family is associated with the women of the family. If any of the women of the family is found to be involved in any kind of illegitimate sexual relationship, It is deemed to be honourable to kill that woman. That is why you find a lot of honour killings in the Muslim countries. Any how lets read a few teachings from the Sunnah(life) of  the Prophet Muhammad.  

Sunnah Of Prophet 

Aishah narrated that :
the Prophet said: "When the circumcised meets the circumcised then Ghusl is required."   (Jamia Tirmadi 109 , Book Reference : Book 1, Hadith 109, English Reference: Vol.1, Book 1, Hadith 109).  

It was narrated that 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet said:
"When the two circumcised parts meet, then bath is obligatory. The Messenger of Allah and I did that, and we bathed."( Sunan Ibn Maja Vol.1, Book 1, Hadith 608, Arabic Reference : Book1 Hadith 651).

Above two Ahadith are telling that during intercourse when two circumcised parts meet then after intercourse bath is necessary.
Umm 'Alqama related that when the daughters of 'A'isha's brother were circumcised, 'A'isha was asked, "Shall we call someone to amuse them?" "Yes," she replied. 'Adi was sent for and he came to them. 'A'isha passed by the room and saw him singing and shaking his head in rapture - and he had a large head of hair. 'Uff!' she exclaimed, 'A shaytan! Get him out! Get him out!'" (Adaab ul Mufrad book 53 , Hadith 1247 , Arabic Reference : Book 1 Hadith 1247)

Typology of FGM according to WHO

Complete typology with sub-divisions:
  • Type I — Partial or total removal of the clitoris and/or the prepuce (clitoridectomy).
    • When it is important to distinguish between the major variations of Type I mutilation, the following subdivisions are proposed: Type Ia, removal of the clitoral hood or prepuce only; Type Ib, removal of the clitoris with the prepuce.
  • Type II — Partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora, with or without excision of the labia majora (excision).
    • When it is important to distinguish between the major variations that have been documented, the following subdivisions are proposed: Type IIa, removal of the labia minora only; Type IIb, partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora; Type IIc, partial or total removal of the clitoris, the labia minora and the labia majora.
    • Note also that, in French, the term ‘excision’ is often used as a general term covering all types of female genital mutilation.
  • Type III — Narrowing of the vaginal orifice with creation of a covering seal by cutting and appositioning the labia minora and/or the labia majora, with or without excision of the clitoris (infibulation).
    • Type IIIa, removal and apposition of the labia minora; Type IIIb, removal and apposition of the labia majora.
  • Type IV — All other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes, for example: pricking, piercing, incising, scraping and cauterization.
  • http://www.who.int/reproductivehealth/topics/fgm/overview/en/


No Health Benefits, Only Harm
Immediate consequences of FGM include severe pain and bleeding, shock, difficulty in passing urine, infections, injury to nearby genital tissue and sometimes death. The procedure can result in death through severe bleeding leading to haemorrhagic shock, neurogenic shock as a result of pain and trauma, and overwhelming infection and septicaemia, according to Manfred Nowak, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
Almost all women who have undergone FGM experience pain and bleeding as a consequence of the procedure. The event itself is traumatic as girls are held down during the procedure. Risk and complications increase with the type of FGM and are more severe and prevalent with infibulations.
“The pain inflicted by FGM does not stop with the initial procedure, but often continues as ongoing torture throughout a woman’s life”, says Manfred Nowak, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture.
In addition to the severe pain during and in the weeks following the cutting, women who have undergone FGM experience various long-term effects - physical, sexual and psychological.
Women may experience chronic pain, chronic pelvic infections, development of cysts, abscesses and genital ulcers, excessive scar tissue formation, infection of the reproductive system, decreased sexual enjoyment and psychological consequences, such as post-traumatic stress disorder.
Additional risks for complications from infibulations include urinary and menstrual problems, infertility, later surgery (defibulation and reinfibulation) and painful sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse can only take place after opening the infibulation, through surgery or penetrative sexual intercourse. Consequently, sexual intercourse is frequently painful during the first weeks after sexual initiation and the male partner can also experience pain and complications.
When giving birth, the scar tissue might tear, or the opening needs to be cut to allow the baby to come out. After childbirth, women from some ethnic communities are often sown up again to make them “tight” for their husband (reinfibulation). Such cutting and restitching of a woman’s genitalia results in painful scar tissue.
A multi-country study by WHO in six African countries, showed that women who had undergone FGM, had significantly increased risks for adverse events during childbirth, and that genital mutilation in mothers has negative effects on their newborn babies. According to the study, an additional one to two babies per 100 deliveries die as a result of FGM.


Can a woman Orgasm after FGM By Dr. Charles Bolman
As a gynecologist, I have had some unusual experiences. One was a Muslim patient who wanted to have a re-virgin operation. She explained that she was not a virgin, but was getting married to another Muslim man. And if he found out she wasn't a virgin, she would be killed.

So I merely reconstructed the hymen, and she was happily married.

Not all women have orgasms, even though they are capable. Most times this is an emotional thing, or even ignorance of the sexual act. I know of one patient who came in for an infertility evaluation. This was easily corrected when on pelvic exam it was found that the hymen was intact, but the urethra was dilated to the size of a penis. (Intercourse was not occurring in the vagina, but the urethra).

To the question asked, while there are a tremendous amount of nerve endings in the clitoris, sex is mainly a mental thing, especially for women. I have had patients say they can have orgasms from nipple stimulation.

How individuals experience orgasm varies. For many women, orgasm occurs with clitoral stimulation. There are more nerve endings in the clitoris than in the entire penis and the clitoris's sole function is for pleasure. Removal of the clitoris would eliminate the chance of having this particular type of orgasm. Some women experience orgasms that may be a result of stimulation of the G-Spot, located on the front vaginal wall.Actually the distal third of the vagina is sensitive, while the upper part is not.

There are people who report being able to orgasm from general vaginal stimulation (not G-Spot-specific), labial stimulation, nipple stimulation, and from anal intercourse. 

A great deal of orgasm is related to our imaginations and our thoughts, as well. So, depending on the woman, the type of cutting procedure, how the genitals healed, and myriad psychological and emotional factors, orgasm and other forms sexual pleasure could be experienced by a woman who has experienced genital cutting. However, it's impossible to determine the likelihood of experiencing pleasure or orgasm for any one person because so many factors play a role.

In addition to lack of sensation or physical pain due to cutting, an person may experience distress or anxiety about having sex because of trauma or fear of pain.

The bottom line: While orgasm is indeed pleasurable, and desirable, sex is actually more than a physical act, especially for women. As Robin William's said, "Women need a reason to have sex, men just need a place." Some women just like to be held and to give men pleasure. Sex is different for each couple. But there is certainly no reason you cannot have a good sex life even if the woman can't have an orgasm. 

And if she can't, and this bothers you, you might want to consider the possibility this is your problem, and not hers.

I would think it would be a good idea to undergo couples counseling and discuss this with a professional.

ALLAH AND SATAN; AN ETERNAL LOVE STORY

ALLAH AND SATAN WORK IN COLLABORATION
AN ETERNAL LOVE STORY



My dear readers, thank you for your love and appreciation. This will keep me on and going on the glorious way of exposing Islam and Allah, which is just like a mission for me just to safeguard the Basic Human Rights from the menace of violation in the name of Religion of Islam. There is no other religion which usurp the basic rights of the people and put the blame on the Creator of Universe that its His command. Its amazing, how people are blinded by this faith of Islam, the basis of which are not even solid and on the shaky grounds. You know, historically, all the mosques built before 725 AD were facing Petra not Mecca. No one from the Muslim world is able to explain this phenomenon that if Islam was started from Mecca and Medina and the Qibla ( towards which Muslims face and offer their prayers) of Muslims was Mecca then why the mosques built after the demise of the Prophet Muhammad till 725 AD were facing Petra not Mecca. Anyway this is not the topic of the day. The topic of the day is, eternal love between Allah of Islam and Satan of Islam. The reason why am I  relating Allah and Satan to Islam is that I am only going to discuss the Islamic theology of Allah And Satan. Isn't it a big subject, but nothing is big and difficult when you can read, especially when its not in Arabic. Read the translation of Quran in English and suddenly the true nature of Allah will transpire on you, lifting the veil of faith from your eyes. It will help you to look at the world with clear vision. Try it sometimes.  

1)    Background
Anyhow, in the theology of Islam and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammd ( Ahadiths) Satan is a very main character and opposer of Allah.  Who, before the creation of Human beings, was the Head of Angels and the most obedient of Allah. According to the Islamic theology, when Allah created Father of the Human beings, The Adam, Allah ordered all the angels including Satan to bow before Adam. At that time Satan refused to bow down to Adam and was thrown out of Paradise. Then Satan made a covenant that till the day of Resurrection, he will misguide the humanity, making him the main adversary of Allah. According to Islamic theology he will live till the day of resurrection and on that day he will be thrown into hell. This was a little background.

2)    Love between the two (Allah and Satan)
I am not talking about the love of Satan for Allah before he was thrown out of Paradise, I am talking about the eternal love which is going to last till the end of the world. I know its hard to believe and same were my feelings when I read the Muslim sources pointing towards that love. Later on I was forced to believe that when you find the same thing again and again in Muslim sources then it cant be wrong. To support my claim. I present you my today’s article. Lets read.   

3)    Allah’s Love and Support for Satan      
Allah loves Satan and cannot see this world without him. Allah does not want a world wherein Satan does not exist. Allah claims that He would have destroyed this world if it was without Satan. I know you must  be thinking that I have lost my mind. Yeah, I lost it when I read the Hadith Qudsi  of the Prophet Muhammad which says something like I said. Hadith a Qudsi is a hadith which is told by the Prophet Muhammad but the words spoken were of Allah. Meaning thereby Allah speaking through Prophet. Here I present you three Ahadith.

a)      Abu Sirma reported that when the time of the death of Abu Ayyub Ansari drew near, he said:
I used to conceal from you a thing which I heard from Allah's Messenger and I heard Allah's Messenger as saying: Had you not committed sins, Allah would have brought into existence a creation that would have committed sin (and Allah) would have forgiven them.(Sahih Muslim 2748 a, Book Reference : Book 50 Hadith 11, English Reference; Book 37, Hadith 6620)

b)     Abu Ayyub Ansari reported that Allah's Messenger said:
If you were not to commit sins, Allah would have swept you out of existence and would have replaced you by another people who have committed sin, and then asked forgiveness from Allah, and He would have granted them pardon. .(Sahih Muslim 2748 b, Book Reference : Book 50 Hadith 12, English Reference; Book 37, Hadith 6621)


c)      Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger having said:
By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, Allah would sweep you out of existence and He would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and He would have pardoned them. (Sahih Muslim 2749, Book Reference : Book 50 Hadith 13, English Reference; Book 37, Hadith 6622)

Conclusion: Allah Does not want a World without Satan.

4)    Satan’s Love for Allah  
Now you would want me to give you some references showing the Satan’s love for Allah. Here you go. The first and foremost is that Satan refused to bow anyone but Allah. In Islamic teachings it is strictly forbidden to bow anyone else but Allah. Satan took the same stance and refused to bow to Adam but Allah considered the refusal, a direct disobeyance of a direct order. To this date, I am unable to understand that Islam strictly forbids to bow anyone but Allah then why Muslims bow to the  black stone erected in the wall of Kaaba. That is definitely not Allah but that is a stone thrown out of Paradise. Amazingly similar to the throwing out of Satan from Paradise. Anyhow lets give you some more convincing argument.

a)      Satan loves the ringing of Bell     

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger as saying:
The bell is the musical instrument of the Satan. (Sahih Muslim 2114, Book Reference : Book 37 Hadith 159, English Reference; Book 24, Hadith 527)

Abu Hurairah reported the Apostle of Allah as saying “The bell is a wooden wind musical instrument of Satan.” (Sunan Abi Dawood 2556, Book Reference : Book 15 Hadith 80, English Reference; Book 14, Hadith 2550)

b)     How Allah Sounds Like  

‘Abd Allah (b. Mas’ud) reported the Messenger of Allah as saying:
"When Allah, the exalted, speaks to send revelation, the inhabitants of heaven hear the clanging of a bell from the heavens like a chain being dragged across a rock, and they swoon. They continue to remain like that until Jibril comes to them. When he comes to them, they recover and say: 'O Jibril, what did your Lord say?' He would say: 'The truth,' and they would say: 'The truth, the truth.'"
(Sunan Abi Dawood 4738, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 143, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4720)

Narrated 'Aisha:
(the mother of the faithful believers) Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah's Messenger "O Allah's Messenger ! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?" Allah's Messenger replied, "Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says." 'Aisha added: Verily I saw the Prophet being inspired divinely on a very cold day and noticed the sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over).(Sahih Al Bukhari 2, Book Reference : Book 1, Hadith 2, English Reference : Vol.1, Book 1, Hadith 2)


Conclusion: Bell is favourite musical instrument of Satan and Allah sounds like ringing of bell. Thus Satan loves the voice of Allah.

5)    Satan obeys Allah 
This must be last thing you would want to hear about Satan that he obeys Allah but I have proof from Quran and Hadith that Satan obeys Allah. Lets read.

Quran chapter 37 verses 160-163  

(Lo! verily, ye) O people of Mecca (and that which ye worship) beside Allah, (Ye cannot excite (anyone) against Him) you cannot lead anyone astray from His worship (Save him who is to burn in hell) save him who will enter hell with you, i.e. Iblis; it is also said that this means: except he whom I decreed that he will enter hell with you. (Tafsir Ibn E Abbas)

These verses are saying that only the person who has been destined by Allah to go to hell would be misled by Satan and none else. People asked the explanation of these verses from Imam Hassan, the Grandson of Porphet Muhammad, who explained these verses like this:

Khalid al-Hadhdha said:
I said to al-Hasan: Abu Sa’id, tell me about Adam. Was he created for the heaven or the earth? He said: No, for the earth. I said: It was unavoidable for him. I said: Tell me about the following verse of the Quran:”can lead (any) into temptation concerning Allah, except such as are (themselves) going to blazing fire.” He said: The devils do not lead anyone astray by their temptation except the one whom Allah destined to go to Hell. (Sunan Abi Dawood 4614, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 19, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4597)

Khalid al-Hadhdha asked al-Hasan about the Quranic verse:
“Can lead (any) into temptation concerning Allah, except such as are (themselves) going to the blazing fire.” He said: Except the one whom Allah destined that he should go to Hell. (Sunan Abi Dawood 4616, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 21, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4599)

Conclusion: Satan only misleads the one whom Allah has destined for hell. No one else will be misled by Satan. So Satan is under the Command of Allah.


6)    Allah needs Satan to Fulfil the destiny As written by Him( collaboration)    

Now I am going to present you a series of Ahadith which will show you that How Allah has destined for every human being, hell or paradise and how no one is able to escape from that what has been written for him by Allah and what’s the role of Satan in that.

a)      Everything has been written 50,000 years before the creation

Abdullah bin 'Amr narrated that the Messenger of Allah  said:
"Allah decreed the measures fiffy-thousand years before He created the Heavens and the earth."(Jamia Tirmadi Vol.4 Book.6 Hadith 2156. Arabic Reference Book 32 Hadith 2309)

b)     Hell and paradise have been destined by Allah        
‘Imran b. Husain said :
The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) was asked : Is it known who are those who will go to paradise and those who will go to hell? He said : Yes. He asked : Then what is the good of doing anything by those who act? He replied : Everyone is helped to do for which he has been created. . (Sunan Abi Dawood 4709, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 114, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4692)

'Ali narrated:
"We were with the Messenger of Allah and he was scraping the ground, when he raised his head to the heavens, then said: 'There is not one of you but (his place) is known' – Waki said: 'His place has been decreed (be it) in the Fire, and (or) his place in Paradise.' They said: 'Shall we not rely upon this O Messenger of Allah?' He said: 'No. Work, for everyone is facilitated for what he was created.'”( Jamia Tirmadi  English Reference: Vol.4, Book 6, Hadith 2136, Arabic Reference: Book 32, Hadith 2283)

c)      No matter what , you will go where you are destined for ( Hell or Paradise)

‘Abd Allah b. Mas’ud said :
The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) who spoke the truth and whose word was belief told us the following : The constituents of one of you are collected for forty days in his mother’s womb, then they become a piece of congealed blood for a similar period, then they become a lump of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends to him an angel with four words who records his provision the period of his life, his deeds, and whether he will be miserable or blessed ; thereafter he breathes the spirit into him. One of you will do the deeds of those who go to Paradise so that there will be only a cubit between him and it or will be within a cubit, then what is decreed will overcome him so that he will do the deeds of those who go to Hell and will enter it; and one of you will do the deeds of those who go to hell, so that there will be only a cubit between him and it or will be within a cubit, then what is decreed will overcome him, so that he will do the deeds of those who go to Paradise and will enter it. . (Sunan Abi Dawood 4708, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 113, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4691)
Also narrated in Jamia Tirmadi  English Reference: Vol.4, Book 6, Hadith 2137 Arabic Reference: Book 32, Hadith 2284)

d)     A child without sin, if died will go to hell

‘A’ishah, mother of the believers, said :
The Prophet (May peace be upon him) was invited to the funeral of a boy who belonged to the ANSAR and I said; Messenger of Allah! This one is blessed, for he has done no evil, nor has he known it. He replied : It may be otherwise, ‘A’ishah, for Allah created Paradise and created those who will go to it, and He created it for them when they were still in their father’s loins; and he created hell and created those who will go to it, and created it for them when they were still in their father’s loins. (Sunan Abi Dawood 4713, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 118, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4696)

e)      If newly born girl is buried alive , she will go to hell

‘Amir reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying :
The woman who buries alive her new-born girl and the girl who is buried alive both will go to Hell. This tradition has also been transmitted by Ibn Mas’ud from the Prophet (May peace be upon him) to the same effect through a different chain of narrators. (Sunan Abi Dawood 4717, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 122, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4699)


f)       Free will does not exist
‘Umar reported the Prophet (May peace be upon him) was asked :
Do not sit which those who believe in free will and do not address them before they address you.
(Sunan Abi Dawood 4710, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 115, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4693)

d)     Who does not belive in destiny don’t go to their funeral

Hudhaifah reported the Messenger of Allah as saying:
Every people have Magians, and the Magians of this community are those who declare that there is no destination by Allah. If any one of them dies, do not attend his funeral, and if any one of them is ill, do not pay a sick visit to him. They are the partisans of the Antichrist (Dajjal), and Allah will surely join them with the Antichrist. (Sunan Abi Dawood 4692, Book Reference : Book 42 Hadith 97, English Reference; Book 41, Hadith 4675)

7)    Conclusion: Allah and Satan Work in Collaboration with each other
Above cited references show that Allah has destined for every one Hell or Paradise. Free will does not count. If Allah has written hell for you, you cannot change it, No matter what you do. And we have already read the verse from Quran which says that devil misleads those who are destined to go into hell. And destiny has been written by Allah 50,000 years before the creation of anything. Every child has his or her destiny written which is unchangeable. All of t he above references clearly shows that Allah has written hell for many people and Allah needs Satan to mislead them into hell. Allah does not want a world free of Sins. He wants the Satan to play his role. So over all according to Islamic theology Satan and Allah work in collaboration. In order to bring the people toward their destinies as written by Allah.
