The Ground Zero Mosque – Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Ground Zero mosquePerhaps no event causes an upwelling of emotion (hate, pride, sadness, outrage) in first responders like the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. We’re talking about the one when the buildings came down. Where firemen rushed in while workers were heading out. Now comes news that a couple of Muslim groups want to build a 13 story mosque, the so-called Ground Zero Mosque, right next to the place where 3,000 Americans were murdered. These Muslims claim they come in peace but can we believe them?

The website AnsweringMuslims.com has produced a video and culled a set of of teachings from the Qur’an that begs the question, “Can you really trust anything a Muslim tells you if you’re not of his faith?” It’s hard to answer yes to that question when their scriptures advocate the constant deception of the non-believer.

Following are a few of the Ground Zero Mosque scriptures and commentary from the website:

Qur’an 3:28—Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security. Allah biddeth you beware (only) of Himself. Unto Allah is the journeying.

Ibn Kathir on 3:28—Allah said next, (unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ said, “We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, “The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.”

Qur’an 5:51—O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

There’s also a VERY good video about the subject to be found HERE
