The Islamic website, from which Habte unfortunately quoted some claims, worships the Father of lies. Let's analyze their first argument and see how easily they tell lies to defend their diabolical faith:
Indeed, according to other verses, even if a Muslim deemed someone an infidel, according to the Quran, he is still obligated to:
1. Behave with courtesy :
Consider, for instance, the following verse, which is supposed to instruct Muslims as to how they should deal with non-Muslims in the midst of hostilities (such as war): 9:6 And if any of the Idolatries (who are fighting you) seeks thy protection, grant him protection, so that he might [be able to] hear the word of God [from thee]; and thereupon convey him to a place where he can feel secure.
I would like you to focus on the bolded section in the quote above. These words in brackets are not in the Qur'an! Actually, Surah 9:6 is attached to Surah 9:5 and must therefore be quoted together with it so that we can get the context:
Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush
. But if
they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And if anyone of the idolaters seeketh thy protection (O Muhammad), then protect him so that he may hear the Word of Allah, and afterward convey him to his place of safety. That is because they are a folk who know not. (Surah 9:5-6)
Evidently, Muhammad is asked by his false deity to take the chance of forecefully converting scared idolaters. While kidnapping and attacking the idolaters as a divine bandit (!), he was supposed to stop and protect those who submitted in fear to the Muslim gangs and implored for survival.This propagation tactic is considered courtesy by the Islamic website! Using the same strategy, some people may regard Nazi's concentration camps as a sign of Hitler's courtesy.
For example, those Quranic verses which condone Muslims fighting non-Muslims (9:5, 29 and 36), are not directed against the non-Muslims for being outside the faith, but because those non-Muslims were aggressors and/or transgressors.
Let's read Surah 9:29 to find out the truth and expose this reckless lie:Fight against them who believe not in God, nor in the last day, and forbid not that which God and his apostle have forbidden, and profess not the true religion
, of those unto whom the scriptures have been delivered, until they pay tribute by right of subjection, and they be reduced low. (Surah 9:29)
Despite the lie, this verse so simply and overtly says that Muslims are commanded to fight ALL non-Muslims who:
1) don't believe in God and the Day of Judgment.
2) forbid not what God and his apostle have forbidden.
3) do not profess the true religion, which is but Islam according to the Qur'an (Surah 3:19).
Not only that all these three criteria are about FAITH, but also they do not even imply what the Islamic website is trying to read into them. Allah/Muhammad did not state that only the transgressors and enemies from these groups would be subject to fight and humiliation through the payment of jizyah!
Let's read the two verses following this verse of sword:The Jews
say, Ezra is the son of God: And the Christians
say Christ is the son of God. They say this (only) with their mouths: They imitate the saying of those who were unbelievers in former times
. May God curse them
(literally: fight against them)! How can they be so infatuated? They take their priests and their monks for [their] lords, besides God, and Christ the son of Mary; although they are commanded to worship one God only
: There is no God but he; far be that from him, which they associate [with him]! (Surah 9:30-31)
In short, Muhammad declared ALL Jews and Christians polytheist infidels! In his sight a Jew and Christian was not different from the Meccan pagans he constantly fought and slayed.
Habte, I hope you can see how that Islamic website managed to deceive you.
