David Wood Refutation Session 1: Refuting David Wood’s Misinterpretation of the Quran Verse 9:73
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Quran 9:73 O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites! Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey’s end.
David Wood is taking this verse and twisting it and misinterpreting to gratify the ego of the bigots and haters of Islam!. There is no where in Islamic scriptures it says to blow up mosques or kill people during the prayer. Islam itself teach the ethics of war and conflict resolution. And Islam forbid taking arms against Muslims and Islam forbid mass murder and murder of the people who are not in war, without a fair judgement. Islam forbid joining the new sects and small rebellious groups and command to stick to the greater majority and well known creed of Islam.
This is the same message Christ preached in his life time, and he will implement it in his second coming (see Luke 13:25-28, Matthew 13:41, Matthew 7:20-25, Matthew 24:48-51) and commanded his disciples (James 4:7)
Islam forbid destroying Mosques ,Churches , Synagogues and so on. Yes, Islam command to find hypocrites with knowledge and to the state Islam commands to prevent the mischief of the hypocrites!
So who are the hypocrites according to the Quran and Hadith? David Wood must study that thing first.
It is obvious from the Quran that those who destroy the Mosques are the hypocrites.
Quran 2:114 And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a great punishment.
Quran 22:40 [They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right – only because they say, “Our Lord is Allah.” And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.
KILLING IN THE END OF TIMES PROVES WHO ARE THE HYPOCRITES:
Islam command Muslims to stick to the Main Body (Greater Majority Creed) and to isolate from the rebellious sects! The last main body who upheld the Caliphate were Ottomans, they were Sunnis who follow the Sufi (Tasawwuf)ways.
Therefore, It has been narrated on the authority of hudhaifa b. al-Yaman who said: People used to ask the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) about the good times, but I used to ask him about bad times fearing lest they overtake me. I said: Messenger of Allah, we were in the midst of ignorance and evil, and then God brought us this good (time through Islam). Is there any bad time after this good one? He said: Yes. I asked: Will there be a good time again after that bad time? He said: Yes, but therein will be a hidden evil. I asked: What will be the evil hidden therein? He said: (That time will witness the rise of) the people who will adopt ways other than mine and seek guidance other than mine. You will know good points as well as bad points. I asked: Will there be a bad time after this good one? He said: Yes. (A time will come) when there will be people standing and inviting at the gates of Hell. Whoso responds to their call they will throw them into the fire. I said: Messenger of Allah, describe them for us. He said: All right. They will be a people having the same complexion as ours and speaking our language. I said: Messenger of Allah, what do you suggest if I happen to live in that time? He said: You should stick to the main body of the Muslims and their leader. I said: If they have no (such thing as the) main body and have no leader? He said: Separate yourself from all these factions, though you may have to eat the roots of trees (in a jungle) until death comes to you and you are in this state. (Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith 4553) Also narrated in Sahih Bukhari!
David Wood is a man a bigot who is misinformed about Islam and who is misinforming about Islam and funded by those enemies of Islam and truth, as you read the truth about Islam above now, now your duty is to be with the truth and to reject the ways of the liars and deceivers!
Anyways, David Wood contributing to Islam by his false allegations against Islam. Because the intelligent honest and people who are upholding justice they are going to hear from both sides and will study Islam from the Muslim scholars, and they are going to find the truth. And then they will shun this David Wood creed and the faith he represent and understand he is a liar and a false disciples (Matthew 7) and a follower of the Father of lies (Satan) in whom there is no truth (John 8:44)!
And many Christian will leave this false disciples and seek truth and truth will set them free and will guide them to Islam.
And only school level bigots and anti-Islam hate addicts can satisfy their own evil mind, like taking drugs, by listening to Mr David Wood , rest of the World will learn and understand the true Message of Islam.
