Koran on Political Corruption

28 May

Politicians are among the richest people on earth today, virtually selling the lives of the innocent to get richer by the minute. There are serious human rights abuses around the world, thanks to political corruption. And it’s not just Zardari whom people think is out to sell Pakistan. We know the United States is extremely corrupt. When a Harvard University professor gets away with rape in the U.S. just because the person complaining of rape is a student — you know U.S. can be considered equivalent to a jungle in Africa. See http://owurapist.blogspot.com

 

Here’s God’s take on things:

 

They say: “If the Mercy-giving had so wished, we would not have worshipped them.” No matter what knowledge they may have about that, they are still merely guessing. Or have We given them a book already which they try to hold on to?

Moreover they say: “We found our forefathers following such a community and we are merely being guided along their tracks.” Just the same We have not sent any warner into a town previous to you unless its highlivers said: “We found our forefathers with such a community, and are merely being led along their tracks.” He said: “Even if I should bring you better guidance than what you found your forefathers had?”, they would say: ‘We reject anything you are sent with!”

We have been avenged on them; see what the outcome was for those who denied [it all]! (Qur’an)

 

Basically, the “high-livers” are too complacent to believe in truth when falsehood is working for them so well in the worldly sense. Are the innocent destroyed with the corrupt? — No, provided that they’ve consistently opposed corruption. They should be praying against the corrupt if nothing else.

 

We have never acted as punishers until We have despatched some messenger: yet whenever We want to wipe out some town, We order its high-livers so they act depraved in it; thus the Sentence about it is proven to be right and We utterly annihilate it. How many generations did We destroy since Noah? Sufficient is it for your Lord to be Informed, Observant of His servants’ sins! (Qur’an)

 

Now both the Christians and the Muslims are expecting Jesus Christ or the Mahdi to emerge during this time. Do you think he’d side with the corrupt here or there? Would he shake hands with Obama or Bush, both engaged in perpetual war and under whose leadership countless innocents are killed day after day? Or would he side with the likes of Zardari or bin Laden?

 

We hurry good things up for them, yet they do not even notice it! Those who feel anxious out of awe for their Lord, and those who believe in their Lord’s signs, and those who do not associate anything with their Lord, and those who give away anything they may give while their hearts feel wary lest they should return to their Lord; [all] those compete in doing good deeds and they will soon attain them.

We only assign a soul something it can cope with. Before Us lies a Book which speaks up for Truth; they will not be dealt with unjustly. Instead their hearts are full of excitement because of this. They have other deeds besides those which they are committing, so that whenever We seize their high-livers with torment, just imagine how they bellow! “Do not roar [so loud] today; you will not be supported by Us. My signs have already been recited to you while you proudly turned on your heels away from it, sitting up nights to chatter on and on about it.” (Qur’an)

 

God says He would not argue with the dumb.

 

We have sent no town a warner unless its high-livers said: “We are disbelievers in what you have been sent with.” They say: “We have more wealth and children, and will not be tormented!” SAY: “My Lord extends sustenance to anyone He wishes and budgets it, even though most men do not realize it.”

It is not your wealth nor your children that will bring you close to Us in patronage; only someone who believes and acts honorably (will do so). Those will have a double reward because of what they have done. They will feel secure in mansions while those who were attempting to thwart 0ur signs will be paraded forth into torment.

SAY: “My Lord extends sustenance to anyone He wishes among His servants and He budgets it out. He will compensate you for anything you have spent since He is the best Provider.” Some day He will summon them all together; then He will say to the angels: “Are those the ones who were worshipping you?” They will say: “Glory be to You! You are our Patron rather than they. Instead they have been worshipping sprites; most of them even believe in them!” (Qur’an)

 

Corrupt governments, political leaders and/or rapist professors from Harvard University or elsewhere do not wish to believe in the devil. They are devils. In fact, a book called “UFO’s in the Qur’an” claims that the U.S. government is being run by aliens or evil spirits. That’s Skull & Bones. They tell their members they’d always be protected from corruption charges. So a Harvard University professor, just because he goes to Harvard, is told he’d always be protected from rape accusations, and no matter what crime he commits, it’s going to be ok.

 

But this is not the way God’s government works. This is not something Jesus would stand for. Corrupt people are going to hell, and nothing can change this fact. It’s written on their foreheads, it’s their destiny. Hell? Well, they’d see it when they get there. Jesus is not their Savior. Salvation is only for good people.

Want War? Start “War Against Bombs”

26 May

 

Against the Atomic Bombing of 1945

 

 

The United States should not have used the atomic bomb to stop the Japanese militaristic threat during World War II, seeing that it was unnecessary to cause untold suffering unto hundreds of thousands of people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Seeing that the United States is nowadays a champion of nuclear warming, it would be ironical if the nation would continue to agree with the logic of using an atomic bomb to end war.  Certainly, the atomic bombs used during World War II – Little Boy (especially named for Hiroshima), and Fat Boy (detonated in Nagasaki three days after the Hiroshima bombing) – were deadly, to say the least.[1]  The bombs used by the United States served to terrify the Japanese people, and therefore ended the war quicker than previously believed.  However, today the United States knows that the cost that was paid by the Japanese people at the expense of a war, was humungous.  It should not have happened.  What if it happens in our homeland?  The photographs that have arrived from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are enough to convince us that the bombing was actually unnecessary (See Appendix).  If Mr. Truman were to be asked his opinion today, he might agree, although he might add that it was necessary to check the potency of those bombs for the world to stop using them altogether. 

     While it is a fact that the world has stopped using atomic bombs after the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombing, it remains true that it was unnecessary to use the atomic bombs in the first place.  It was unnecessary because we knew all along that those bombs are powerfully dangerous.  Indeed, the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombings were a crime against humanity.  Needless to say, it is essential to stop such crimes.  Thankfully, still, the U.S. has realized its mistakes and today acts a spokesperson for ‘freedom from nuclear proliferation and explosions,’ which Mr. Truman had thought were actually equivalent to the harnessing of universal energies, if not the powers of God, as of the Big Bang.  At the same time as the atomic bombing of 1945 acted as a revolution for humanity, and the marriage between technology and human beings – it was a “terrible” disaster.  In the words of the then-unapologetic Mr. Truman, the extent of the disaster was also expected:

 

         We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world.  It may be the fire

    destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark.

         Anyway we “think” we have found the way to cause a disintegration of the atom.  An

    experiment in the New Mexico desert was startling – to put it mildly.  Thirteen pounds of the

    explosive caused the complete disintegration of a steel tower 60 feet high, created a crater 6

    feet deep and 1,200 feet in diameter, knocked over a steel tower 1/2 mile away and knocked

    men down 10,000 yards away.  The explosion was visible for more than 200 miles and audible

    for 40 miles and more.

         This weapon is to be used against Japan between now and August 10th.  I have told the

    Sec. of War, Mr. Stimson, to use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the

    target and not women and children.  Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and

    fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb

    on the old capital or the new….[2]

 

The experiment was not essential to conduct upon the lives of countless civilians who ended up losing their existence to Mr. Truman’s whim.  The United States should simply have shown the New Mexico desert example to the Japanese, and warned them thereby.  Science allows for such examples to serve as warnings.  In any case, Mr. Truman was successful in that he managed to warn the Japanese alright.[3]  As a matter of fact, the Americans promised the Japanese more ruin to come from the air, if the latter failed to concede subsequent to the Hiroshima explosion.  Was it not reasonable for the U.S. to have waited more than three days before it also bombed Nagasaki – for the effects of the bomb to show up in greater intensity in Hiroshima, or for the Japanese to simply look upon their damages and surrender?  The effects of the bomb were present the first day to boot.[4]  Unfortunately, the Japanese did not concede until after the Nagasaki bombing.[5]    

     According to the Americans, by bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they terrified the Japanese into surrender.  However, it can reasonably be argued that the United States should have used its actual scientific testing of the nuclear weapon (in the Mexican desert) to scare the Japanese, instead.  The U.S. could have easily reported the scientific testing in the Japanese press.  Furthermore, the U.S. should not have bombed Nagasaki after Hiroshima, seeing that the effects of the bomb in Hiroshima were horrible at best.  The United States is a nation of people standing by God through their world-famous Declaration of Independence and Constitution.  It is quite obvious from news reports about the Hiroshima bombing alone that the attack called for the help of God.  In actual fact, the attack was a miserable failure for the United States because it stopped all sense of normal life in Hiroshima in the twinkling of an eye.  Quite similar to 9/11, the Hiroshima bombing was enough as warning, even if we were to give the U.S. the benefit of the doubt by assuming that the scientific experiment could not have been enough of a warning for the Japanese.  The U.S. should not have gone forward with the Nagasaki bombing after inflicting a disaster similar to 9/11, but bigger in magnitude than 9/11.  It was an inhumane mistake.

     Fortunately, however, the United States is now wise enough to avoid such disasters in the present and the future.  The world knows that the nation is capable of inflicting such a disaster, and other countries are developing similar military power in a race to rule the world.  All the same, everybody now understands that it is atrocious to use atomic bombs on other human beings like unto ourselves.  It is not only inhumane, but also stupid to use nuclear weapons when scientific experiments (including Hiroshima) have clearly shown the immensity of the damage that these weapons may inflict.  It is, moreover, a terrible mistake to be thinking of developing such weapons.  Even though they serve as good warning measures, or may be later used in an ice age; atomic bombs are atrocious to employ on people.  Lastly, it is essential to realize that it is never necessary to be violent and horrible.  Rather, the concepts of peace, love, and brotherhood – all emotional appeals – plus numberless varieties of logical appeals could keep us on the paths of peace and prosperity.  In fact, the relationship between U.S. and Japan as it exists today is evidence that the realization has hopefully occurred.

The UN and HRW and Buddies Can Only Watch and Report: Allah Will Fix the Problems

24 May

Of course, Prophet Muhammad, peace on him, never said people should be killed for abandoning Islam. Rather, the Qur’an says, “There’s no compulsion in religion.” That’s the truth. It’s another fact that illiterate so-called Muslim men invented countless sayings in the name of Muhammad.

 

 

 

 

And, what you do is to torture, oppress and kill innocent Muslims because you can’t find bin Laden and buddies, previously the buddies of Bush, etc. You imagine that all innocent Muslims are on the side of illiterate radicals. So you become as unjust as the bin Ladens.

 

 

 

 

Hamas brainwash videos.

(Note: Jews are “People of the Book” in the Holy Koran; Zionists do not follow Mosaic law; they also kill Orthodox Jews).

Stories


In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful!

T.S.M.

These are verses from the clear Book!

We shall recite in all truth to you some information about Moses and Pharaoh for folk who believe.

Pharaoh had acted haughtily on earth and split his people into factions, seeking to weaken a group of them. He slaughtered their sons and let their women live; he was so depraved! Yet We wanted to endow those who were considered inferior on earth, and make them into leaders and make them [Our] heirs. We established them on earth and showed Pharaoh and Haman as well as their troops how they should beware of them…..

 

 

 

…God has promised to appoint those of you who believe and perform honorable deeds as [His] representatives on earth, just as He made those before them into (such) overlords, and to establish their religion which He has approved for them, and to change their fear into confidence. They serve Me [Alone] and do not associate anything else with me. Those who disbelieve later on will be perverse.

 

Keep up prayer, pay the welfare tax, and obey the Messenger so that you may receive mercy. Do not reckon those who disbelieve can ever frustrate things on earth; their lodging will be the Fire, and how wretched is such a goal!…

 

 

 

…Or did you reckon you will enter the Garden when the same thing never happened to you such as [happened] to those who have passed away before you? Suffering and hardship assailed them, and they were battered about until the Messenger and those who believed along with him said: “When is God’s support [due]?” Is not God’s support near?

 

 

 

…My sons, go and search for Joseph and his brother; do not despair of [finding] God’s comfort; only disbelieving folk despair of God’s comfort.”

 

 

 

We have not sent anyone before you except men from among the townspeople whom We have inspired. Have they not travelled around the earth and seen what the outcome was for those who preceded them? A home in the Hereafter will be better for those who do their duty. Will they not use their reason? – so that once messengers despair and think that they have been lied to, Our support will come to them and anyone We wish to will be saved. Our might is never averted from criminal folk.

There is a lesson in their stories for prudent persons. It is not some report which has been invented but confirmation of what has existed previously and an analysis of everything, as well as guidance and mercy for folk who believe.

 

 

 

…He said: “Who despairs of his Lord’s mercy except those who are lost?”

 

 

 

…Do not fear: He knows what you do not know and grants besides that, a victory nearby. He is the One Who has sent His messenger with guidance and the True Religion so He may have it prevail over all (other) religion. God suffices as a Witness!

 

 

 

…God has written: “I shall prevail, both I Myself and My messengers!” God is Strong, Powerful. You will not find any people who believe in God and the Last Day showing affection for anyone who places limits on God and His messenger, even though they are their own fathers, their sons, their brothers or anyone from their family connection. With those He will engrave faith on their hearts, assist them with a spirit from Himself, and will show them into gardens through which rivers flow, to live there for ever. God will approve of them while they will be pleased with Him. Those are on God’s side. God’s party are those who shall be successful!

Islamic Mortgages Boom During Recession

Buying in good faith
Alternative home finance that adheres to Islamic principles is thriving
By LINDSAY WISE HOUSTON CHRONICLE
April 22, 2009, 6:53PM

 
Johnny Hanson Chronicle
As part of its Islamic-based business model, Guidance Residential featured a recitation from the Quran by Noorulhuda Khalid, 10, during a recent gathering for prospective borrowers at the Mezban Curry and Grill restaurant in Houston.

Share  Print Email Del.icio.usDiggTwitterYahoo! BuzzFacebookStumbleUponFor five years after moving to Houston, Pakistani immigrant Abdul-Jabbar Khan rented an apartment even though he had saved enough money to make a down payment on a house.

The 43-year-old kidney specialist at Methodist Hospital is a devout Muslim, and worried that a conventional mortgage would violate his faith’s prohibition against paying interest on loans.

“For a long time I kept on saving money,” Khan said. “I kept thinking I would buy a house with cash, but it just never happened.”

The doctor feels like he found the literal answer to his prayers in the form of a “lease to own” agreement from American Finance House Lariba of Pasadena, Calif., one of a handful of Islamic mortgage companies in the U.S.

“It made me more comfortable,” said Khan, who financed a four-bedroom house near Rice University with Lariba. “I was happy to pay even more because I was abiding by the rules of Islam, but it turned out to be comparable.”

At a time when most of the mortgage industry is still reeling from the real estate crisis, alternative home financing arrangements designed to adhere to Islamic principles are thriving.

Guidance Residential, which conducted a recent series of seminars at Houston-area mosques and restaurants, is recording its best quarter ever so far this year, with business up 45 percent over the same period last year. The Virginia company has closed more than 6,300 contracts and provided $1.4 billion in financing nationwide since its inception in 2002.

“People are realizing Islamic financing is here to stay, and it is a viable option right now, and it is competitive,” national sales manager Aijaz Hussain said.

Alternative structure
Because Islam forbids interest payments on monetary loans, or riba, Islamic mortgages are advertised as alternatives to the borrower-lender structure of conventional mortgages.

In Guidance’s model, the home buyer forms a limited liability entity with the mortgage company. The entity purchases the home and splits shares in the property according to the percentage paid by each partner. For a $100,000 home, for example, the buyer might put down $20,000, while the mortgage company pays the remaining $80,000. The buyer then pays a monthly “rental fee” for unrestricted use of the home, as well as a monthly “acquisition” payment to buy out the mortgage company’s shares over time until the buyer has full ownership.

Since the “rental fee” is fixed to the market interest rate, the costs are roughly the same as a conventional mortgage, Hussain said. However, the buyer pays an additional $18.75 per month to maintain the limited liability entity.

“If your ultimate goal is to find the cheapest possible payment, then you should consider another lender,” Hussain said. “A customer is buying the peace of mind that when he moves into his home it will be financed in a proper Islamic way.”

Under sharia, or Islamic law, Guidance cannot profit off a customer’s financial distress, so the company does not charge interest or percentage-based fees on late payments, only a fixed amount of $50 to cover processing costs. A “non-recourse” clause protects the customer’s other assets beyond the house in the event of foreclosure.

Hussain said that Islamic mortgage companies fared well during the economic downturn because they eschewed subprime loans in favor of co-ownership agreements that required customers to go through extensive pre-purchase counseling. Guidance boasts a delinquency rate at less than half the industry standard, he said. “Because we are partners, we choose carefully who we want to work with,” he added.

Like Lariba and other Islamic mortgage companies, Guidance has boards of Muslim scholars to supervise its financial arrangements and issue fatwas, or legal rulings, to certify that its mortgages comply with sharia.

Risk of IRS audits
But Mahmoud Amin el-Gamal, chair of the Rice University economics department, isn’t convinced. El-Gamal says Islamic mortgage companies use “smoke and mirrors” to entice pious Muslims into paying more for less.

“All they sell them is holy water sprinkled over the mortgage,” he said.

El-Gamal believes Islamic mortgages are “grossly inefficient replications” of conventional mortgages with more legal and tax risks. The structure has not been tested in bankruptcy court, he said, and the Internal Revenue Service has yet to rule whether the “rental fees” are a legitimate tax deduction, so buyers could expose themselves to the risk of being audited.

El-Gamal, a Muslim, holds a conventional mortgage on his own home. He sees no problem with the arrangement because it’s tied to the purchase of a physical asset and isn’t an interest-bearing loan in the traditional sense.

“It’s a whole new transaction that did not exist in ancient times,” el-Gamal said.

Khan has no regrets about his Islamic mortgage. He said he would happily pay more to satisfy his conscience.

“I’m sure there’s a difference of opinion,” the doctor said. “It’s hard for me to say if it was completely halal or not, but I felt it was closer to what I wanted to do.”

Qur’anic Inspiration for the Great Recession

8 May

Would the Great Recession quell the American lust for war? Let’s see what the Qur’an says:

 

…Only some offspring among his own folk believed in Moses because of fear for Pharaoh and his councillors, lest he might put them to some test. Pharaoh was so haughty on earth and besides he was a dissipated man. Moses said: “My people, if you believe in God, then rely on Him if you are Muslims.” They said: “On God do we rely. Our Lord, do not turn us into a trial for wrongdoing folk! Save us through Your mercy from such disbelieving folk!”

 

So We inspired Moses and his brother [as follows]: “Settle your people down in houses in Egypt and turn your houses into shrines; keep up prayer and announce good news to believers.” Moses said: “Our Lord, You have given Pharaoh and his councillors splendor and wealth during worldly life. Our Lord, is it so they may lead [us] off from Your way? Our Lord, wipe out their wealth and firm up their hearts so they may not believe until they see painful torment.” He said: “Your appeal has been answered, so act straightforward and do not follow along the way of those who do not know.”
