Honor Killings: Robert Spencer Lies About Islam

This is a shocking lie by Robert Spencer on the Michael Coren show. On this show, Robert Spencer claims that the Quran and Sharia (Islamic Law) support honor killings!

Even the most gullible Robert Spencer fan must have raised an eyebrow to that humongous lie. Let's call it for what it is, a lie. Robert Spencer is passing on falsehoods and he's getting paid to do so - he always looks sharply dressed so I guess he isn't short of a bob or two. Stop giving him cash, that's one way of getting the message across to him and those of his ilk.

In this video we see a clip of Robert Spencer making his claim and thus getting refuted via a clip from a real scholar - we see Dr Bilal Phillips teach that Honor Killings is not allowed according to Islamic Law - in fact he teaches that the Sharia (Islamic Law) sees honor killing as MURDER which is punishable by execution.

Watch Robert Spencer Refuted on Honor Killings in Quick Time!


Here is further refutation for Robert Spencer to think about, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty teaches honor killings are NOT Islamic:

“There is no such concept in Islam that is called “honor killing”. Islam holds every soul in high esteem and does not allow any transgression upon it. It does not allow people to take the law in their own hands and administer justice, because doing so will be leading to chaos and lawlessness. Therefore, based on this, Islam does not permit such killings.”

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Falsely accused of 'defending Al Qaeda attacks'

What the?

You know the internet is full of strange claims. Here's another one to add to the list. Some Islamophobe who makes money on the net out of attacking Islam and Muslims decided to go after me. I guess all my blog posts countering his operation was kind of worrying him and his money-making potential.

Anyways, he has claimed the following post shows I'm supporting Alqaeda attacks. Check the post out for yourself and get a feel for the falsehood of the claim:

My message to this man who makes money out of attacking Islam:

People can be transformed. The opponents of the Prophet (p) were particularly vicious against Muslims. Hind actually bit into the liver of the Prophet's uncle, Hamzah, when he was martyred at the Battle of Uhud. However, she later became a Muslim, and hence became a Companion of the Prophet (p), a member of that special generation of humanity. In fact, she even narrated hadith which can be found in the well-known compilations. Repentance is a recourse that the Lord of the World's has given humanity. [p129, Purification of the Heart by Hamza Yusuf]

Muslims Must Respond to 'A Wind in the House of Islam: How God is Drawing Muslims Around the World to Faith in Jesus Christ'

In an article entitled 'Why Muslims Are Becoming the Best Evangelists' Dave Garrison is interviewed and he makes some worrying claims.

Firstly, I know that Eastern Christians do have a habit of lying/exaggerating to their Western co-religionists when it comes to evangelism - see Kamal Saleem's bizarre figures for Iran's Christian conversion figures for Iran or the post about Eastern Christians in America having developed a bad reputation when it comes to their activities related to Muslims and Islam so the information that Dave Garrison bases his claims and book upon is not reliable BUT having said that we as Muslims should look into the claims of Dave Garrison and begin to counteract missionary activity in Muslim countries. The reasons why Dave Garrison cites for Muslims converting to Christianity are all based on frustration and emotion rather than logic and reasoning. Islam is full of logic and reasoning - so much more than Christianity - thus we as Muslims need to equip Muslims in the more susceptible parts of the world (such as the poorer countries) with access to learning about Islam and support network so they are not left as lone sheep to the wolves.

In total, Garrison estimates that 2 to 7 million people from a Muslim background worldwide now follow Christ. (This is a projection since a comprehensive count is not possible.)

Muslims really need to look into this. We know Christian missionaries do target those they deem to be the most vulnerable such as the less educated, refugees, the poverty-stricken, victims of abuse etc. but need to raise awareness within Muslim communities - Christian missionaries are out to steer you from pure monotheism (the pure monotheism of ALL Prophets including Jesus).

Islam is so much more logical than Christianity - there's no logical reason for anybody to convert to Christianity from Islam.

Pagans had sex...

Weird argument!

Recently I posted about some pagan practices in churches. One chap emailed me and mentioned pagans had sex - he equates this with the adoption of the Easter egg and the Easter bunny (pagan practices):

LOL you do realize that just because something is pagan does not mean it is haram for Christians. Do you know that sex was practiced by pagans. So by your logic we should not have sex because the pagans practiced it lol. Really man the Easter egg and Easter bunny has NO religious significance in Christianity. There are no sermons based on it, no theological lessons on it. Simply put it has no impact no effect on Christian worship what so ever. We do no pray to a Chocolate Easter Bunny or a colored Easter Eggs.

Look, I understand this chap may have been raised on the Easter bunny, Easter eggs, Christmas on the 25th of Dec and wearing crosses but to try and side step the problem with such shocking argumentation is a sign that he is not thinking about matters deeply.

I also ask him to look into where the Trinity belief came from. Remember, the New Testament does not have Jesus teaching it...

Americans Should Oppose Geert Wilders

Dutch politician Geert Wilders has once again become the subject of controversy after he led supporters in an anti-Moroccan chant during a campaign rally last month. Despite the mass condemnation he has received for the remarks, Wilders’ anti-Muslim counterparts in the United States are standing by his draconian approach to immigration.

While at the rally in The Hague, Wilders, who heads the Party for Freedom (PVV), asked the crowd: “Do you want in this city more or fewer Moroccans?” to which they chanted, “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!”

“We’ll take care of that,” he responded with a wry smile.

Pakistan and Honor Killings

Pakistanis need to get the message over to their fellow country men and women that Islam does not allow honor killings.

ISLAMABAD: In 2013, as many as 202 women were murdered in the name of Karo-kari (honour killing) in Sindh, Special Home Secretary Sindh informed the Senate Functional Committee on Human Rights on Monday.

The secretary also stated that at least 28 honour killing cases have been reported in 2014 thus far.
He added that the incidence of honour killing in interior Sindh is continuously rising because of the jirga system that exists in all districts of the rural parts of the province.

...He directed the provincial government to take effective steps to discourage the act. [Snipped from http://tribune.com.pk/story/698459/202-women-murdered-in-the-name-of-honour-during-2013/]

Pagan influences in churches - speak the truth clearly

This Christian missionary (David Wood)seems to have taken his claims about Islam right off a dodgy missionary website before airing them on an internet evangelical Christian TV show (ABN Sat). Looking beyond this man's amateurism let's look at his claims; his claims are refuted in the video and questions are raised about Christian practices and beliefs which are linked to pagans.

're Pagan Practices in Islam' (A Powerful Response to ABN)


This Christian falls into error as he is unaware that the Islamic practices and revered places/objects that he mentions are in fact linked back to Abraham (p) thus are in fact monotheistic. Abraham built the Kaba and worshipped God there. Thus, worshipping God at the Kaba is Abrahamic and monotheistic NOT pagan.

The Christian in the video (David Wood) is confused as AFTER the passing on of Abraham and Ishmael (p) later generations in the vicinity of the Kaba took up idol worship and thus became pagans but also maintained some Abrahamic practices. These Abrahamic practices were restored back to a complete monotheistic way with the coming of Islam.

Hajj (the pilgrimage) was revealed by God and was proclaimed by Abraham. Circumambulation was mentioned by God to Abraham (see Quran 22:26-27)

Kissing the black stone (which Abraham used as a cornerstone for the Kaba) is something Muslims do as it's the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (p). It's not a pagan practice.

The Christian practices and beliefs we highlighted to have pagan roots

Easter: As Christianity spread into Europe different Pagan customs blended into the holidays. It's actually thought the word 'Easter' may have come from Eostre (a Pagan goddess of Spring and fertility. Jesus never celebrated Easter nor ever taught anybody to do such.

Easter Eggs: Eggs have been mythological symbols of birth for thousands of years. Christians adopted the egg as an Easter custom around the 13th century. Jesus never taught this practice of the Easter egg - he never practiced such.

Easter Bunny: The rabbit had long been a symbol of fertility and new life in European pagan customs. Christians adopted the rabbit around the 16th century.

Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2010/apr/03/easter-pagan-symbolism

The cross: The cross is something that is believed to have originated from the ankh:

The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the[ir] gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh.
The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the[ir] gods. http://theafrocentricexperience.com/index.phpoption=com_content&view=article&id=86&Itemid=125

Jesus never wore a cross nor taught people to wear such crosses.

Christmas: Christians celebrate this in the winter (December) despite knowing Jesus was not born in the winter. This celebration is linked to the winter solstice which the nature worshippers observed.

The Trinity: This is a belief that Jesus didn't teach nor did any other Prophet. It's thought this belief in the trinity was due to Graeco-Roman (pagan) influence. Islam is bringing people back to the original message of the Prophets.

Please, if you love the Prophets and want to follow their teachings look into Islam:

Heroes: Dearborn Muslim Parents Oppose Pagan Easter Egg Hunt

You'd think Americans would be happy that Muslims in Dearborn were unhappy with fliers for an Easter Egg hunt being distributed in their children's school. Well the right wing are using it to bash Muslims.

How weird is this. Americans claim their country is Christians, yet when Muslims oppose the pagan practice of Easter Eggs we see Muslims getting criticised by some quarters. Islamophobia blinds people. Christians should salute the Muslim parents in Dearborn who stood up against this pagan practice rather than criticise.

Perhaps the Christians who are criticising these Muslim parents were simply unaware of the paganism behind the Easter Egg tradition.

Here's a reminder of the pagan origins of the Easter bunny and eggs:

Easter Eggs: Eggs have been mythological symbols of birth for thousands of years. Christians adopted the egg as an Easter custom around the 13th century. Jesus never taught this practice of the Easter egg - he never practiced such.

Easter Bunny: The rabbit had long been a symbol of fertility and new life in European pagan customs. Christians adopted the rabbit around the 16th century.


Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2010/apr/03/easter-pagan-symbolism

However, putting aside the origin of the Easter egg, one would not expect MUSLIM parents to be happy if they felt their children were being subjected to a propaganda campaign to convert to Christianity. One would expect the Muslim parents to raise their concerns at the very least.

What happens when the Muslims do this? A bunch of right wingers start attacking them. Disgusting.

A report about the Muslim hero, Majed Moughni, who mentioned his theory that Christians are trying to convert Muslim children to Christianity and spoke out against the fliers promoting this Easter Egg hunt:

A Michigan public school district has angered Muslim parents by handing out a flyer promoting an Easter egg hunt at a local church.

Moms and dads say the advertising of the "Eggstravaganza!" event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn is a "clear violation" of the separation of church and state — and that teachers paid for by the taxpayer should not be promoting activities organized by a church.
"It really bothered my two kids," Majed Moughni, whose 7- and 9-year-old children attend Dearborn elementary schools, told the Detroit Free Press.

"My son was like, 'Dad, I really don't feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.'"

Moughni also said he feared "Christians are trying to convert Muslim kids through propaganda distributed at public schools."

Christians Warned Against Pastor Saeed Abedini

Right, this Pastor, Saeed Abedini, who is locked up in an Iranian jail allegedly for his 'Christian evangelical activities' is becoming a big name amongst the Christian right wing.

Interesting, ANOTHER Eastern Christian becoming big in American evangelist circles!

I'd just like to remind Christians in the West about a number of corrupt and dishonest Eastern Christians who have gained varying degrees of fame and fortune in America:

Ergun Caner - This Turkish-origin guy was even speaking gibberish and passing it off as Arabic to Christian audiences. Such was the extent of liberties this guy was taking.

Walid Shoebat - this Arab guy came to you with what appears to be a bogus story of being an ex terrorist while collecting your cash.

Sam Shamoun - This Assyrian-Kuwaiti guy has been showing Christian evangelism up for over a decade now as an internet apologist (literally making stuff up such as 'Islam allows sex with animals')

Kamal Saleem - this Arab fella came to your door with that tried and tested, 'I used to be a terrorist' spiel  and interestingly enough he brought more than one version of a conversion story!

Usama Dakdok - This Egytian Copt came to you with a bunch of lies whilst claiming he's done a 'true translation of the Quran' - he has no qualifications in classical Arabic.

What the average American does not know about Muslim countries in general, there's a ton of poverty and a number of corrupt people there who will do and say anything for a fistful of dollars. Yep, there folk who are willing to fly over to America and feed you with a load of stuff they think you want to hear for the exchange of cash. Cash. CASH!

Now I'm not saying anything stupid such as Pastor Saeed Abedini is not in prison. I'm asking you to be wary. There's the claim that Pastor Saeed Abedini is responsible for setting up about 100 churches in 30 different Iranian cities. I'm just saying be wary. He may have set up that number of churches or he (or somebody else) may have exaggerated the figure.

Be wary of his claims. Just be wary. Eastern Christians have taken you for a ride in the arena of 'Christian evangelism to Muslims' many, many times before.

Don't make Pastor Saeed Abedini a celebrity within your Christian communities in America or elsewhere like you did with Ergun Caner. Look what happened to him.

Don't use the imprisonment of Pastor Saeed Abedini as a tool to unleash anti-Muslim sentiment. Your right wing has a habit of using the misery, suffering and even death of Christians to hate-monger against Muslims and Islam. Pathetic.

Do do something positive. Rather sitting around moaning about Iran and Muslims, write a letter to your respective Iranian embassy and ask the authorities in Tehran to look into matters.

Son of Arnoud Van Doorn Converts to Islam

There's a really strong message being sent to the right wing. People who the right wing would expect to hate Islam are becoming Muslim!

World Bulletin: Iskander Van Doorn, 22, followed in his father Arnoud's footsteps by leaving the far-right movement and accepting Islam.

The son of former far-right Dutch leader Arnoud Van Doorn, who converted to Islam last year, has joined his father in also professing his faith in the religion of Islam.
The Khaleej Times reported on Monday that Iskander Van Doorn had made his declaration of faith along with 37 others at a Dubai International Peace Convention.
“I saw my father become more peaceful after converting to Islam," Iskander said, adding "that’s when I realized there is something good in this religion and it made me change my perception of Muslims.”
Stating that after his father's conversion he too started studying the Qur’an and listening to lectures about Islam, the 22-year-old Isakander said a close friend who was a Muslim also helped to teach him more about the religion.
 
People can be transformed. The opponents of the Prophet (p) were particularly vicious against Muslims. Hind actually bit into the liver of the Prophet's uncle, Hamzah, when he was martyred at the Battle of Uhud. However, she later became a Muslim, and hence became a Companion of the Prophet (p), a member of that special generation of humanity. In fact, she even narrated hadith which can be found in the well-known compilations. Repentance is a recourse that the Lord of the World's has given humanity.

Uganda: Muslim Man Kills Daughter for 'converting' to Christianity

This is pure ridiculous. A Muslim man's daughters reportedly went to a church and became Christians and the Muslim father beats them upon their return home - one of them dies as a result of this beating.

The Muslim man should have brought a scholar to the house to explain Islam to them. Islam is so much more logical than Christianity - there's no logical reason for anybody to convert to Christianity from Islam. Sadly the emotion of anger meant the father did not use wisdom.


 (Morning Star News) – The 17-year-old daughter of a Muslim man in Uganda was able to attend one church service this month before he killed her for leaving Islam, sources said.
Abdul Hakim Ibanda of Kamuli town in eastern Uganda beat Nanvunani Shamimu and her 19-year-old sister, Nawudo Hasifa, with a blunt instrument after learning that they had attended the church service on April 6, Hasifa told Morning Star News.

Ugandan Muslims need help against Christian preachers?

Uganda is a predominantly Christian country, Muslims are about 11 % of the total population of Uganda. It's important that the Muslims in Uganda learn about Islam and learn about the arguments against Christianity so they are not tricked into converting to Christianity.

If there are any Ugandan Muslims who need assistance with explaining Islam to any of their family members who have converted to Christianity please email me and I will try to help you. I can highlight the falsehoods in Christianity and show you the evidences for Islam. InshaAllah.

Cuban Muslim Roots in Sierra Leone?

A group of Cuban villagers ( Ganga-Longoba of Perico) traced their roots to a small village in Sierra Leone. It's great news that these Cuban villagers have traced their roots to their ancestors' homeland but the question now is, were these ancestors in Sierra Leone Muslims? This question also extends to all the Cubans of African descent, they need to look into whether their ancestors were Muslims.

The Ganga in Cuba originating from the area of Africa which is now Sierra Leone would suggest that other Cubans came from this region in Africa too. It gets more interesting as the majority of people in Sierra Leone are indeed Muslims, thus suggesting many of the Cubans of Sierra Leone could have Muslim ancestry:

Followers of Islam constitute the majority of the population of Sierra Leone, while Christians form a significant minority. The Pew Research Center reports the 2004 census figure for the Muslim population at 71.3% (4,059,000).[110] Muslims are estimated to comprise 60% of Sierra Leone's population according to the US Department of State as of 2007,[111] while 20 to 30% are reported to be followers of Christianity, and 5 to 10% of the population practice indigenous animist beliefs. [Wikipaedia]

All Non-Muslim Cubans should use this as an impetus to study Islam with an open heart. In the Americas, the estimation of African slaves who were Muslims was up to 20%:

Black and Arab Inter-marriage at time of Prophet Muhammed,p:

Here's a snip from the BBC news report on the Cuban Ganga:

Cubans trace roots to remote Sierra Leone village

For decades the Ganga-Longoba of Perico have been singing the same chants, a tradition passed down the generations.

But until recently this Afro-Cuban community knew little of the origin of the songs, or of their own ancestors.

Now, thanks to the work of an Australian academic, Cuba's Ganga believe their roots lie in a remote village in Sierra Leone from where it is thought their relatives were sold into slavery more than 170 years ago.

"When I first filmed the Ganga-Longoba, I believed their ceremonies were a mixture of many different ethnic groups," says historian Emma Christopher, of Sydney University.

"I had no idea that a large number of Ganga songs would come from just one village. I think that's extremely unusual," she says.

Extremist Christians Trying to Make Black People Hate Islam

The mischievous folk in the West have been trying to set Black men and Black women against each other, and now the extremist Christians in the West are trying to turn Black people against Islam through false propaganda and lies:

American Christians are seeing many African-American brothers and sisters leaving Christianity for Islam. What is the response of these Christians? To lie and attempt to present Prophet Muhammad (p) as racist!

Anybody with any sort of scholarship and/or insight into Islam will know Prophet Muhammad was not racist

From Prophet Muhammad we realise racism is 'ignorance'.

Muslims believe there were black Prophets (in fact Prophets of every skin colour) as Allah (God) sent warners to every nation.

Prophet Muhammad had many black friends (who are loved in Islam), approved marriages between Black and Arab, the first muezzin (caller to prayer) was indeed a black man (Bilal) and the Prophet's nurse was Abyssinian (Umm Aymen)

Did Paul have any such relationships with black people? Did Mark, Matthew, Luke and John ever meet a black person never mind befriend and love them (like Prophet Muhammad did)?

From the New Testament, The Ethiopian eunuch seems to be the first black person to become a Christian - at the hands of Philip [Acts 8:26-40]. There are very few details about this man. In fact Philip disappears after the Ethiopian's baptism.

For me, this is another sign that Prophet Muhammad (p) is indeed the Last Messenger of God. Surely the last Messenger of God would have had such fine teachings concerning race and relations with black people especially since they are indeed generally the most victimised when it comes to race in the history of mankind.

The Prophet said, "I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out of Medina and settling at Mahai'a, i.e., Al-Juhfa. I interpreted that as a symbol of epidemic of Medina being transferred to that place (Al-Juhfa)."

The Assyrian Christian LIES and claims Muhammad said 'if you have a dream of a black woman that is a sign of an epidemic'!

The Christian must have thought African-Americans are stupid or something; I mean there's no way somebody balanced is going to come away believing these desperate Christians after reading about Prophet Muhammad (p) and the hadith above. It's obvious the hadith above is related to that SPECIFIC hadith and Prophet Muhammad did not say 'if you see a black woman in your dream then you will have an epidemic' - this was a bare-faced lie by the Christian missionary who goes by the names, Sam Shamoun and Triple B. I'd like to add another name to his list, 'liar'

The Christian even misuses Qadi Iyad's Ash-Shifa and attempts to make a Muslim scholar appear racist. Amazingly, we have already refuted this deception before, I guess the /Christian in question had not seen our article or simply chose to ignore it to further his deceptive agrenda.

Here is the article in full:

There is a deceptive ploy on the internet which suggests Islam is racist against black people.

Those who propagate such a claim use the two narrations in Ash-Shifa of Qadi Iyad which highlights the opinion of Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman concerning those who call the Prophet Muhammad (p) black. Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman was of the opinion whoever does so should be put to death [1]

Sadly, these rabble rousers fail to mention this was the opinion of Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman and NOT of the Prophet (p).

Their deception is worse still

However, their deception gets worse as the context of the statement is omitted (though it is in the SAME segment of the book) as this statement would have been made within the back-drop of ANYBODY who alters the description of the Prophet being considered a disbeliever and even liable to execution:

Habib ibn ar-Rabi’ said that it is disbelief to alter his description and its details. The one who does that openly is an unbeliever. He is asked to repent. The one who conceals it is a heretic and is killed without being asked to repent. [2]

So we see the problem was not racism but the problem could have been that of altering the description of the Prophet.

To highlight their deception further we can look at the quote they use:

Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, Sahnun's companion, said that whoever says that the Prophet was black is killed. The Prophet was not black [1]

However, they do not quote the paragraph immediately below which further shows the issue was not racism but the issue being, stating falsehoods which constitute denial:

Abu ‘Uthman al Haddad said something similar and said that if someone said that the Prophet died before his beard began to grow or that he was in Tahart (Morocco) and not Tihama, he is killed because this constitutes denial. [2]

Let’s be realistic

During such a time there may have been a racist undercurrent amongst the ignorant/hypocrites who used this as a slur (i.e. calling people “black”), thus Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman would have recognised the INTENT was to disparage the Prophet (p) hence his calling for the death of such folk. It is not racist on the part of Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman and it certainly has NO bearing upon Islam!

Sadly, the rabble rousers are not willing to scratch the surface or attempt to be intellectually honest – they work agendas to mud sling at Muslims and Islam.

I feel this attack against Islam is simply a devious design to stem the conversion to Islam amongst our brothers and sisters in African communities as Islam has resonated well amongst Afro-Caribbean communities in the West (and beyond) and many are leaving Christianity for the Truth of Islam.

Obviously Islam is against racism

Islam does not condone racism at all. In fact, the real criteria for judgement (in Islam) is that of conduct, NOT skin colour – this is learned through the holy Quran [3]

Muslims believe there were black Prophets (in fact Prophets of every skin colour) as Allah (God) sent warners to every nation. [4]

Muslims respect and love ALL Prophets (p). In addition, some companions of Prophet Muhammad (p) were indeed black in skin colour (the most well-known is Bilal), thus some of our saintly predecessors are indeed black!

Obviously Islam is not racist.

The Prophet considered racism as “ignorance”

When his Arab Companion Abu Dharr called Bilal 'son of the black woman', the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) got angry and told him: 'You are a man who has ignorance in him.' Abu Dharr felt such a great remorse that he put his cheek on the ground and asked Bilal to tread on his other cheek if he’d like to. [5]

[3] O mankind! Lo! We have created you from male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. [Pikthal’s English translation of Quran, 49:13]

[4] Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi writes:

Allah has mentioned in the Qur’an that He sent Messengers and guides among all people. Allah Almighty says: “ And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger, (proclaiming): Serve Allah and shun false gods. Then some of them (there were) whom Allah guided, and some of them (there were) upon whom error had just hold. Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!.” (An-Nahl: 36) He Almighty also says, There was not any community except a Warner who lived among them.” (Fatir :24).


In his Musnad, Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal has stated that Allah sent 124, 000 Prophets, and from among them 315 were Messengers.

[5] In his famous Farewell Pilgrimage sermon, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) declared: "O people! You are all to Adam and Adam was made of dust. No Arab is to be preferred over a non-Arab except by virtue of his piety." In another hadith, he (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Allah does not look at your images or your colors but He looks at your hearts (intentions) and your deeds. Creatures are the dependants of Allah and the closest among them to Allah are indeed the most useful to His dependants."
