The Reality of Friendship in Islam
Any Muslim who believes in the Quran and the prophethood of Muhammad should never be trusted.
Any Muslim who takes the beliefs and demands of Islamic theology seriously is like a loaded weapon that could spontaneously explode or backfire at any moment.
Even the Muslims cannot trust their own family and friends. You leave Islam or criticize Mohammed and you die.
The Reality of Friendship in Islam (http://www.faithfreedom.org/)
Friendship is only possible in Islam if both parties remain in the religion forever. For Muhammad has ordered that Muslims who leave Islam must be killed.
If there are two Muslims sitting in front of the computer reading this article, they must admit that they should kill their friend if he or she tried to leave Islam.
Muhammad’s Islam even demands that a Muslim should disown his or her family members if they attempt to leave the religion. It says so right in the supposedly perfect Quran!
YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong.
PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers.
SHAKIR: O you who believe! do not take your fathers and your brothers for guardians if they love unbelief more than belief; and whoever of you takes them for a guardian, these it is that are the unjust.
Islam is poisonous to human relationships. Whether a person is born into Islam or becomes a Muslim through conversion, they must remain in the religion for the rest of their lives or risk being killed by their former Muslim “brothers and sisters”. Muhammad said that those who leave Islam are to be killed:
Hadith, Sahih Bukhari: Vol.9, Bk.84, No.57:
Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’”
In Chapter 004, Verses 088 through 091 of the Quran, it also states that apostates should be killed.
And these are supposedly the words of the creator of this vast and beautiful universe? Not a chance. It is worth considering the above verse 009.023 of the Quran and its meaning for a moment before delving further into the topic of friendship in Islam.
In Verse 009.023 of the Quran, Muhammad is claiming that God has commanded him to inform “his followers” that they must rank Islam ahead of their own family in importance. In other words, Muhammad has said that Muslims should virtually disown their own family members should they simply choose not to remain Muslim. At minimum the family member is to be heartlessly ostracized.
Can you imagine being a Muslim parent or child and having to obey this verse should the reality arise within your own family? This tragic situation has arisen within millions of Muslims families throughout the centuries, and millions have been killed by their own families due to Islamic apostasy laws. Such is the sickening legacy of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Let us now consider friendship in Muhammad’s Islam:
There can be no true friendship between Muslims. Friendship in Islam is contingent upon continued adherence to the religion. In other words, if a Muslim simply chooses to leave Islam for his own reasons, his Muslim friends must consider him a traitor to the Muslim Ummah, an enemy of God, a worthless failure and an Apostate that should be killed.
Let us now further consider the reality of friendship amongst Muslims themselves. This topic concerned me greatly when I was a Muslim. For inside I knew the answers to the questions that I was asking myself…. and the truth was deeply disturbing. Some of the questions that I asked myself were as follows:
If I were to leave Islam would my Muslim friends have to dump ME?
Does this mean that if one of my Muslim friends chose to leave Islam that I would have to dump THEM?
The answers to these fundamental questions helped open the door for me and leave Muhammad’s Islam. These and other “Islamic realities” led me to a critical study of Islam that helped free me from its perverse falsehoods.
Obviously real friendship is profound and is to be highly respected and cherished. Many know how important friendship is to human health, happiness and our general development as individuals. Tragically, there can be no genuine friendship in Islam. Many Muslims still do not understand this basic fact but are beginning to sense that something is very wrong with their religion.
Now let us look to Islam’s “holy book,” the Quran, and see what it has to say regarding friendship:
Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.
O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
Thou seest many of them turning in friendship to the Unbelievers. Evil indeed are (the works) which their souls have sent forward before them (with the result), that Allah’s wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide.
Turnest thou not thy attention to those who turn (in friendship) to such as have the Wrath of Allah upon them? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear to falsehood knowingly.
O ye who believe! Turn not (for friendship) to people on whom is the Wrath of Allah, of the Hereafter they are already in despair, just as the Unbelievers are in despair about those (buried) in graves.
In conclusion, it should be obvious to all decent human beings that Islam’s treatment of friendship is severely perverse. There are many valid reasons why a person would choose to leave Islam. Upon close inspection, Islam is the obvious fraud of a very, very deranged con man who may have never even existed.
