Is not the measure a man grants to another
his treasure, so treasured to be called his gain?
There is not enough hate to be found unless
continuously sought for… to reach out from pain,
this selflessness is gained when without due sight
one comes forth from the heights or depths known,
here is found, quite clearly in our sight, what values
can be seen by us all… where the heart is then shown,
so exposed… there is no turning back, headlong in
to thickets and brambles or to plant on cleared land,
the treasure of a man’s heart speaks volumes to the
world at large, so small, when we strike with our hand,
raise up the mountains of thought… of hope, raise
them to the heights sought for… for glories unknown,
seek power for power’s sake at the loss of another
and when planted… this is the treasure we’ve grown.
What was really accomplished here, by Isil beheading someone converted to Islam… and sympathetic to the people of the region, to allow us to see tolerance is a measure we should (or could) afford another human being? Extremism for right or wrong reasons still pits humanity against humanity. There is a difference between blowing up a clinic to stop abortion and using a bomb to kill as many innocent people as you can… and both are equally senseless acts of extreme thought.
If truth is what religion offers humanity to improve our condition and offer this same hope to all mankind… why lie about it? I show the truth (in love) to those unaware this exists to cause one to question why this is offered as truth! There is no balancing a lie and the truth… it is either one or the other!
TAKIYYA:Takiyya is defined as dissimulation about ones Muslim identity.Islamic Sharia Law provides, “When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.” (Reliance of the Traveler, Para r8.2) Examples include lying to protect Islam or a Muslim.
TAWRIYA: Tawriya is defined as concealing, and it could be called “creative lying”.
Suppose someone protests that Surah 1 of the Quran demeans Christians and Jews, because it is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day to keep them from the path of “those with whom God is angry” and “those who have lost their way”. A Muslim might respond, “Surah 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practicing tawriya, because while Surah 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, but he knows full-well that the words “those” refer to Jews and Christians.
KITMAN Kitman is characterized by someone telling only part of the truth. Often, kitman results in a gross distortion of the truth. In the example given, the Quran uses jihad and its derivatives 59 times. Of those, only 16 (27%) could be considered “internal” with no object as the target of the struggle based on the context of the surah.
Another common form of kitman is to quote only the few peaceful passages from the Quran, knowing full-well that that passage was later abrogated by a more militant, contradictory verse. Here is an example:
“There is no compulsion in religion” (Surah 2:256) Early Medina
“Are they seeking a religion other than Allah’s, when every soul in the heavens and earth has submitted to Him, willingly or by compulsion?” (Surah 3:83 Later Medina)
MURUNA: Muruna means using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings. The justification for this kind of deception is a somewhat bizarre interpretation of Surah 2:106, which says, “If we abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or similar.” Thus, Muslims may forget some of the commands in the Quran, as long as they are pursuing a better command. Muslims striving to advance Islam, therefore, can deviate from their Islamic laws in order to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and place their trust in their Muslim counterpart.
Please understand what was done to the Jews by Hitler is being done today in Iraq, by Isis, see the mark (to signify those that follow the Nazarene… Jesus Christ) left as an insult and to: harass, intimidate, demean, demoralize and instill fear. As the world pushes ‘tolerance‘ under ‘political correctness… an oxymoron,’ there is none given to those of a different faith by Isis (or Isil). Now this image is being worn throughout the world (by christians) in a show of support and to signify unity. An Arabic ‘N’ is now a symbol to unite christians around the world! See above…
