Many Muslims try to claim that Islam is a religion of peace, but anyone who studies both the Quran and history, knows that Islam is anything but a religion of peace. Islam’s holy book says:
We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh . . . (Quran 3:151) (Translation is The Noble Quran.)
This verse refers to attacking Christians because they believe in the Trinity. One of the Quran’s primary verses tells people “to fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain.” Is it a mere coincidence that this chapter and verse is (9:111)? There are a lot of these “coincidences” that point to the evil of Islam, so many that it is hard to believe that they are just coincidences. Muhammad said:
And warn those who say: Allah has taken a son. They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers; a grievous word it is that comes out of their mouths; they speak nothing but a lie. (Quran 18:4-5) (Shakir translation)
That quote is surely blasphemy. Another verse is engraved in gold leaf around the inside of the Dome of the Rock:
“O followers of the Book [Bible], do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the truth; the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, is only an apostle of Allah . . . Far be it from His glory that He should have a son . . .” (Quran 4:171) (Shakir)
Murder and slavery became a fundamental part of Islam when Muhammad slaughtered the male members of an opposing tribe and sold the women and children into slavery. It is even in the Islamic holy books, the Quran and Hadith:
. . . bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam. (Hadith: Vol. 6, Book 60, # 80: Narrated Abu Huraira)
Slavery continued throughout the Muslim invasions and beyond. Dr. Bill Warner is the founder of the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI). He relates this story about Khalid, one of the great generals and companions of Muhammad:
Mohammed sent Khalid out, and the sword of Allah to the Jazima tribe to offer Islam, they refused. He annihilated every one of them. At the battle of Olayis in Iraq, for two days he spent out rounding up the losers, put them in a dry stream bed and cut off their heads until the stream ran with blood. He then took the captain of the Zoroastrian Persian tribe, his wife was there. He cut off the man’s head, let the blood drain into the soil and raped his wife in the bloody soil.
That was one of the companions of Mohammed. This is the nature of jihad. Where did Khalid learn how to do that? From Mohammed. From Mohammed at the Battle of Khaybar. (Why We are Afraid, a 1400 year Secret, politicalislam.com, also at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_Qpy0mXg8Y)
According to several sources, Khalid ordered his men to murder everyone they found when they entered Damascus, because the city did not willingly surrender:
“No quarter to the enemies of Allah,” yelled Khalid, known as the Sword of Allah. He was a mass murderer, robber, and slaver of Christians. . . . his trumpets sounded, and a torrent of Christian blood was poured down the streets of Damascus. (The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, by Edward Gibbon.)
A quote from a little book intended only for English speaking Muslims, and published in Saudi Arabia, details the life of a man named Saad bin Abi Waqqas who has gone down in Islamic history with great honor because “he was the first Muslim who had the honour to shed [the] blood of unbelievers” (Saad bin Abi Waqqas, by Aamaal Khattab, 1999, p. 9).
Again the Quran says:
Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah (tax on non-believers) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Noble Quran 9:29)
The Shakir translation says, “until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.” In other words, fight until Islam rules the world politically and nonMuslims pay a heavy tax and are oppressed under Islamic rule. Muslim rulers have always oppressed Christians and Jews by discriminatory laws. Another verse suggests that Muslims must wage war until there is no other religion:
And slay them wherever you find them . . . for persecution is worse than slaughter . . . And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. (Quran 2:191, 193) (Pickthal translation)
In other words, it is better to “slaughter” people in order to conquer them than be in subjection to them. The first Muslim war of conquest began in 632 and succeeded beyond their wildest expectations. When the Muslim general, Akbah, reached the Atlantic Ocean, it is reported that—
He spurred his horse into the waves, and, raising his eyes to heaven, exclaimed with the tone of a fanatic, “Great God! if my course were not stopped by this sea, I would still go on, to the unknown kingdoms of the West, preaching the unity of thy holy name, and putting to the sword the rebellious nations who worship any other gods than thee.” (The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire, by Edward Gibbon)
The ocean stopped the Muslim advance at that time, but they still desire to continue their jihad to the ends of the Earth, and will try again.
Ishmael is one of the ancestors of the Arabs. He was the son of Abraham and Hagar, his concubine. The Bible says Ishmael will live like a wild man and will be against everyone and everyone will be against him (Gen. 16:12), and that very aptly describes Muslims; many have the DNA of Ishmael but they all have that spirit that wants to fight and kill anyone for the slightest reason.
One of Allah’s 99 names is the Great Deceiver. Muhammad said:
Allah is the greatest of all deceivers. (Quran 3.54)
The Apostle John said:
I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. (2 John 1:7)
The Hour [Day of Judgment] will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.” (Hadith 4:52:177)
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)
And it was not [possible] for this Qur’an to be produced by other than Allah, but [it is] a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of the [former] Scripture, about which there is no doubt, from the Lord of the worlds. (Quran 10:37)
The Apostle Paul called Satan the god of this world:
The god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe . . . (2 Corinthians 4:4)
The Quran was supposedly given to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. Muhammad said:
Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel-for he brings down the (revelation) to thy heart by Allah’s will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings for those who believe . . . (Quran 2:97)
The Apostle Paul Said:
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! (Galatians 1:8)
Muhammad even appears to say that all followers of Islam have a demon assigned to them, and that he also has one!
There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah’s Messenger, with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good. (Hadith 39:6757)
He also said:
The most awful name in Allah’s sight on the Day of Resurrection, will be (that of) a man calling himself Malik Al-Amlak (the king of kings). (Hadith 8:73:224)
But Muslims are going to see that sight! Revelation says of Christ:
The armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. . . . On His robe and on His thigh He has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (Rev. 19:14, 16)
Revelation 17:8 describes the coming of the 8th head of the beast as rising up “out of the Abyss.” Revelation 9 describes the opening of the Abyss, and says locusts came up out of the Abyss:
They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon. 12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come. (9:11-12)
Abaddon and Apollon both mean “the Destroyer,” therefore, the name of the ruler of this revived empire is “the Destroyer.” In the Quran, Allah is described using many different names, much the way that Yahweh has many names in the Bible such as El-Shaddai, God Almighty. One of the names of Allah, depending on who does the translation from Arabic, is “the Destroyer.” I will not include all 99 names, but here is a sampling:
- Ar-Rahman: The All-Merciful
- Al-JaKhali: The Creator
- Al-bbar: The Compeller
- Al-Qahhar: The Subduer
- Al-Mumeet: The Creator of Death, The Destroyer, The One who renders the living dead. (www.faizani .com/articles /names. html www. ahadith. co.uk/99 namesof Allah.php? )
Some websites have the names numbered one digit differently and spelled differently; wikipedia.org has it this way:
- Al-Mumit: The Destroyer, The Bringer of Death . . . (en. wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_God_in_Islam)
So this passage in Revelation 9 literally names Allah as being the power behind the beast of Revelation! Given the history of what Islam has done to the nations it invaded and conquered, and is still doing today, “the destroyer” exactly describes Islam.
In 2 Thessalonians 2, the man of lawlessness comes from what is spiritually dead, which is why he is called, “son of perdition.” Islam came from paganism, and Muhammad was a pagan before he claimed to follow one god. Historical evidence shows that Allah was the chief deity in Mecca before the coming of Islam and was the god of Muhammad’s tribe (www. faith freedom. org/ Articles/ skm30804.htm), and was only one of 360 gods in the Kaaba.
The Greek for “perdition” is apoleia (from apollumi), and literally means “to destroy fully” (CWD). It can refer to either physical or spiritual destruction and ruin. Notice the closeness in spelling and meaning to apollyon (Rev. 9:11), and means “the Destroyer.” This is because apollyon also comes from apollumi. So son of perdition or “destroyer” points us directly to Islam, because Allah is the Destroyer, as we learned in a previous chapter. So, the passage is saying that the coming Antichrist is the “son of destruction.”
Although this passage in 2 Thess. could refer to the next global leader of Islam, the final Antichrist, it certainly does refer to Muhammad who founded Islam. Mohammad was the first genuine Antichrist, and the next leader of Islam will be the final Antichrist.
