Taqiyya Interfaith Practioner caught claiming "Islam means Shalom"


Actual Islamic Tolerance toon

I first ran into Paul Sutliff in September 2014 when he exposed Dr. Muhammad Shafiq as a Muslim pretending to be a promoter of interfaith Moderate Islam. I cross posted and included a little digging in two posts:

 

o   Shafiq and Dr. Shafiq – Moderate Muslims?

 

o   More Dr. Shafiq & Paul Sutliff Exposes his Taqiyya

 

The first post cleared up some identity difficulty I was having with two different Shafiqs. The second post was centered on Dr. Muhammad Shafiq the very person Paul Sutliff was exposing as a public manipulator of we the considered kafir.

 

Below is another cross post from Paul Sutliff exposing yet another manipulation moment pertaining to Dr. Shafiq at yet another public forum this time promoting another interfaith deception in the guise of a book he had written. Paul Sutliff doesn’t share the title of the book which is not surprising since it is obvious that Dr. Shafiq distorts and warps history and interpretation to favor the antichrist book that Muslims call the Quran. As a point of reference here is the title of a Dr. Shafiq released in paperback in May 2014: “Sacred Texts & Human Contexts: A North American Response to A Common Word between Us and You (Sacred Texts and Human Contexts) (Volume 1)”.

 

Accompanying Dr. Shafiq at the public forum was his co-editor Dr. Nathan Kollar.

Taqiyya Interfaith Practioner caught claiming “Islam means Shalom”

 Dr. Muhammad Shafiq

Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad 

 

On April 22, 2015 Dr. Muhammad Shafiq held a meeting to discuss his latest book and was accompanied by co-editor Dr. Nathan Kollar.

The evening started surprisingly slow and revealed that both Dr. Kollar and Dr. Shafiq were unprepared for the event. Neither brought one thing to share with the audience besides themselves. There was a projector for a professional presentation available as well as an ELMO for sharing hard copy information. As an author I was embarrassed for them as this was a highly unprofessional presentation, I have done numerous book talks and not once did I come soInterfaith unprepared!

 

Dr. Kollar stated at the beginning of this meeting that he and Dr. Shafiq had been working on the Hickey Interfaith Center for 15 years at Nazareth College of Rochester.

 

They talked about the importance of interfaith dialogue and asked why we came to listen to them. I openly stated my name and that I am an author, and was concerned that this was a platform for Civilization Jihad and that I wanted to hear him address the section in his book that claims Jesus led a jihad.

 

When the[y] began to talk about the scriptures of each religion, Dr. Kollar spoke of the Tanakh (the law, the Dr. Nathan Kollarprophets and the writings), what Christians refer to as the Old Testament and when he spoke of the Bible he stated they were written by men. When he referred to the Koran he stated it was given by God. Our local media representative, Shannon Joy of WYSL stopped him and said Christians and Jews believe their scriptures come from God not man. Dr. Kollar apologized stating he did not mean to say otherwise.

 

It was then that I also contributed, but the Koran as Dr. Shafiq states, was given not by God, but by an angel. I pointed out that these two entities are not the same. Christians and Jews believe their scriptures are inspired by God and were not given by angels. However Islam has quite the different story. This was quickly brushed off as semantics. Dr. Kollar served as an apologist for Islam stating that this is pretty much the same thing.

The other Christian present also pointed out that Dr. Shafiq could not have this discussion in his own home country and likely would be killed for daring to have it, this Christian stated that Islam needs to deal with the violent actions of those who are Muslim in Muslim countries to have a serious discussion in interfaith when including Islam.

Dr. Kollar led the discussion to talking about the importance of dialogue and honesty in the dialogue. That was when I had to speak up. That is what the letter below is all about. Please read this and write to Dr. Daan Braveman [Nazareth College Bio] about your concerns regarding this matter.

 

Dear President Braaveman [sic] and Board of Trustees:

 

Last night Dr. Muhammad Shafiq presented at the Brighton Public Library on his latest book with Dr. Nathan Kollar, professor emeritus of St. John Fischer College. I went with interest since my last encounter with Dr. Shafiq proved rather revealing.

 

Dr. Nathan Kollar talked about the importance of honesty in interfaith relations. I shared that this is an important point “since in my last encounter with Dr. Shafiq, I asked what Islam means and he replied peace.” I continued, “I told Dr. Shafiq to stop lying and tell people what it means in Arabic” and explained that Dr. Shafiq paused and said “Submission.” I stated that I have grave concerns when someone who is supposed to be teaching kids (college age) is lying to people about the religion he is supposed to be teaching. Dr. Shafiq replied in front of 20 people, “Islam means the same thing as shalom.” I am no fool. I have a BA in Religion and Philosophy with extensive training in Hebrew. I also have at my disposal an expert in Arabic who will also communicate that Dr. Shafiq’s HIGHLY OFFENSIVE equation of submission and shalom is nothing other than a purposeful lie!

 

Due to the blatant lie of Dr. Muhammad Shafiq of Nazareth College of Rochester to the public, I have great concerns about what he is teaching to anyone who is not a Muslim. I understand that lying to non-Muslims about what they believe is part of their faith, they have a doctrine called taqiyyah. BUT, when a person who is paid to run an inter-faith center and teaches young impressionable minds at a college is caught lying about the very topic he was hired to teach I am concerned.

 

Can Nazareth College of Rochester knowingly continue a relationship with a man who openly lies to non-Muslims in public forums about what Islam teaches? As a NAZ graduate myself, I HAVE SERIOUS CONCERNS THAT A PERSON PRACTICING TAQIYYA IS AFFILIATED WITH NAZARETH!

 

You should know a member of the Press was there last night and this is likely to be a discussion on her radio show, especially after both the presenters talked about the importance of honesty in interfaith discussions!

 

Sincerely,

 

Paul Sutliff

8 thoughts on “Taqiyya Interfaith Practioner caught claiming "Islam means Shalom"”

  1. Islam is peace: of ass! The Arabic word means submission. Ibn Sa’d recorded a saying in which Moe said that he was raised for Jihad and not for tillage. He also said that he was sent with a sword to see that none is worshiped but Allah.

    2.216 ordaiins Jihad for Muslims: it is Islamic law; they must wage war. 2.190 can be interpreted as calling for defensive jihad if we ignore the context.
    2:190. And fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allâh likes not the transgressors. [This Verse is the first one that was revealed in connection with Jihâd, but it was supplemented by another (V.9:36)].

    2:191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.

    2:192. But if they cease, then Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    2:193. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zâlimûn (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)

    2:194. The sacred month is for the sacred month, and for the prohibited things, there is the Law of Equality (Qisâs). Then whoever transgresses the prohibition against you, you transgress likewise against him. And fear Allâh, and know that Allâh is with Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2) .

    2:195. And spend in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd of all kinds, etc.) and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allâh), and do good. Truly, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good-doers).

    What is “the cause of Allah”?

    9:24. Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight … are dearer to you than Allâh and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause , then wait until Allâh brings about His Decision (torment). And Allâh guides not the people who are Al-Fâsiqûn (the rebellious, disobedient to Allâh).

    9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

    9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 65:

    Narrated Abu Musa:

    A man came to the Prophet and asked, “A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah’s Cause?” The Prophet said, “He who fights that Allah’s Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah’s Cause.”

    Muslim: liar! Slave of Satan!! I call you out!!! Where in the context of these damnable verses is the element of defense???

    8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

    9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).

    http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/009-qmt.php#009.123

    8:59. And let not those who disbelieve think that they can outstrip (escape from the punishment). Verily, they will never be able to save themselves (from Allâh’s Punishment).

    http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/008-qmt.php#008.059

    How is that defensive? Do not overlook 8.57 & 8.60 in anssweing this question.

    What was Moe’s prime motivating factor; what is Allah’s? Answer in the light of this curseworthy verse:

    8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

    http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/008-qmt.php#008.067

    What did Moe say about the Jihad imperatives? What is defensive about those statements??

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 92, Number 388:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    When Allah’s Apostle died and Abu Bakr was elected as a Caliph after him, some of the Arabs reverted to disbelief, ‘Umar said to Abu Bakr, “How dare you fight the people while Allah’s Apostle said, I have been ordered to fight the people till they say ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’ And whoever says: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ waves his wealth and his life from me unless he deserves a legal punishment lusty, and his account will be with Allah! Abu Bakr said, “By Allah, I will fight him who discriminates between Zakat and prayers, for Zakat is the Compulsory right to be taken from the wealth By Allah, if they refuse to give me even a tying rope which they use to give to Allah’s Apostle, I would fight them for withholding it.” ‘Umar said, ‘By Allah, It was nothing, except I saw that Allah had opened the chest of Abu Bakr to the fight, and I came to know for certain that was the truth.”

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 196:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    Allah ‘s Apostle said, ” I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ and whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)”

    How does one save his life & property from Moe? His attacks are on account of not being Muslim, aggressive, not defensive!

  2. Muslim: liar, whose tongue is a worm slithering from Satan’s anus!!! I know something you wish I did not know. Lurking in a Pal Talk chatroom frequented by Muslims, I learned that Moe dictated and dispatched extortion letters. A handful of them are included in “The Sealed Nectar”. One of them is included in Sahih Bukhari. But one Islamic web site has three pages of them. While most leave something to the imagination, one does not. I reproduce it here with a link to the source. I challenge you to explain this away!!!

    LETTER TO THE CHIEFS OF AQABA

    In the name of ALLAH the compassionate, the Merciful

    From Muhammad, Prophet of Allah

    To the People of Aqaba

    May peace be on you. I praise Allah who is one and except whom there is nobody else to be worshipped.

    I do not intend to wage war against you till you receive my written reason for it. It is better for you, either to accept Islam or agree to pay Jiziya and consent to remain obedient to Allah, His prophet and his messengers. My messengers deserve honour. Treat them with respect. Whatever pleases my messengers, will also please me.

    These people have been informed of the orders about Jiziya. If you desire that there should be peace and security in the world, obey Allah and His Prophet. Thereafter none in Arabia and Ajam (Iran) shall dare cast an evil eye on you. But the rights of Allah and His Prophet can at no time be waived.

    If you do not accept these terms and set them aside, I do not need your presents and gifts. In that case, I shall have to wage war (to establish peace and security). Its result would be that the big ones shall be killed in war and the commoners shall be taken prisoners.

    I assure you that I am a true Prophet of Allah. I believe in Allah, and His Books, and His Prophets and am of the faith that Maseeh (Messiah) son of Mariam (Mary), is a Prophet of Allah and His word.

    Hurmala (Raziallah AnhoA.) who brought to me 3 wasaq (about 6 quintals) of barley, recommended your case. Had it not been in compliance of the command of Allah and the good opinion of Hurmala for you, it would not have been necessary for me to correspond with you and instead of it, there would have been a war. If you will obey my messengers, you shall immediately have my support and the help and support of everyone who is attached to me.

    My messengers are Shuraih-beel, Obaiy, Hurmala and Hurais (Raziallah AnhoA.) and whatever decision they take in respect of you, shall be acceptable to me.

    Your people are under the protection and responsibility of Allah and His Prophet.

    Supply provisions to the Jews of Maqna, for their journey to their country.

    If you accept obedience, may peace be on you.’

    Seal: Allah’s Prophet Muhammad .

  4. Islam wages war against those who refuse to convert or make annual extortion payments.
    The Sira written by Ibn Sa’d includes many more of Moe’s extortion letters. This one largely mirrors the one posted above. Decent men of good moral character will read it and curse Islam, demanding the extinction of Muslims, which is necessary for the preservation of life and liberty for the human race.

    http://www.soebratie.nl/religie/hadith/IbnSad.html#01.2.73.3

    Volume 1, Parts II.73.3
    They said: The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, wrote to Yuhannah Ibn
    Rubbàh and (other) chiefs of the people of Aylah: You are safe. I praise Allah before
    you; there is no God but He. I will not fight against you unless I write to you (in
    advance). So, join the fold of Islam or [P. 29] pay the jizyah. Obey Allah and His
    Apostle and the messengers of His Apostle, honour them and dress them in nice
    clothes, other than the uniform of the ghazis. Provide Zayd with good clothes. If my
    messengers will be pleased with you, I shall also be pleased with you. The jizyah is a
    known thing. If you like that, peace might prevail over the land and sea; you should
    obey Allah and His Apostle. You will not be required to pay dues you have been
    paying to the Arabs and the ‘Ajamis, and you will pay the dues to Allah and His
    Apostle. If you send them (my messengers) back and do not please them, I shall not
    accept anything from you, and shall wage war against you and make your young
    ones captive and shall stay your elders. Verily, I am the Apostle of Allah to
    communicate the truth. I believe in Allah, His Books and His Apostles. I believe in
    Masih Ibn Maryam (Messiah son of Mary) who is His word, to be His Apostle. Come
    to me before you face the evil. I have given advice to my messengers about your
    affairs. Pay three wasag (Wasaq is a camel-loadequal to sixty sa`s, each sa` being
    equal to four mudds, and each mudd is equal to 1-1/3 lbs., thus a wasaq is equal to
    nearly four maunds of Pakistan.) of barley to Harmalah. Verily, Harmalah has
    recommended your case. Had there been no Allah and this (recommendation) I
    would not have had any correspondence with you and you would have seen armies
    marching against you. If you obey my messenger, verily, Allah is your defender and
    (also) Muhammad and those who follow him. Verily, my messengers are Shurahbil,
    Ubayyi, Harmalah and Hurayth lbn Zayd al-Tá’i. If they conclude a treaty, I shall
    approve of it and you will be under the guarantee of Allah and Allah’s Apostle
    Muhammad. Salàm to you. If you obey, you should arrange provisions for the people
    of Maqna to go to their land.

      1. When I learned of the letters at alquraan.net while lurking in a Paltalk chatroom, I had been reading every post on two Netscape message boards for more than a year and participating in several PT chatrooms. I only knew of the letter to the Byzantine Emperor found in Bukhari.

        I want the entire world to be informed about those extortion letters.
