Why Did Muslims Choose Capitol Hill to Pray to Allah?
by Mohammad Asghar (October 2009)
In my understanding, there are at least 15 mosques in the greater Washington, D.C. area. Muslims have been offering their daily and Juma prayers at these mosques ever since they were constructed. This being the fact, one must wonder why Muslims chose Capitol Hill last Friday to offer their prayer to Allah.
To solve the puzzle, and to find out the truth, we will need to know what prayer, if any, was offered to Allah and what sermon, also known as khutbah, the leader (Imam) of the Friday prayer had delivered to the congregation of Muslims.
Khutbah was introduced by the Prophet of Islam. His khutbah contained words of exhortation, instruction and important announcements, including those pertaining to raids and war preparations, to his followers.
Following this tradition, Imams have been delivering khutbahs to Muslim congregations all over the world. Their khutbahs are vastly different from those delivered by Muhammad. Unlike the Friday congregation of the time of Muhammad, the present-day congregations may include the presidents, prime ministers, high government and military officers, doctors, professors and scientists of the Muslim countries as well as the illiterate, but militant, Muslim masses.
Below is a redacted letter, written by a conscientious Muslim to a newspaper in Bangladesh, detailing in it what he had heard the Imam of a mosque tell his congregation before leading it to a Friday prayer.
Instead, the Imam began his khutbah with a message to the Muslims in America, telling them:
As if his above incendiary remark about the Oneness of Allah (God) was not good enough to hurt the religious sentiment of American Christians as well as of other Christians of the world, and his naked lie about the oneness of humanity insufficient to bluff the unsuspecting Americans, the Imam also declared:
“America, this is our country. We are with you. Muslims have been blessed tremendously living in the gates of North America, and it is our time to give back.”
The Imam addressed America, and not its Christian and other religious people, and openly claimed that it is the country of the Muslims and that they are living in its gates so that they can take it from its Christian rulers, when such a move will be possible for them. He also claimed America for the Muslims, as Allah has made them the rulers and the inheritors of the entire world (the Quran; 24:55 & 35:39). Once under Muslim control, they would give America back what it gave them, first by attempting to convert all of its inhabitants to Islam (The Quran; 9:29), and then by imposing Sharia on them so that all of them could follow the infallible laws of Allah. As already empowered by Allah through the Quran, Muslims would be at liberty to kill those non-Muslims who would refuse voluntarily to convert to Islam, or pay protection tax to them, with their victims’ wives, daughters and sisters etc., turned over to their Muslim masters as perpetual sex slaves.
As if to give some solace to his alarmed non-Muslim listeners, the Imam told them:
“We came today to let the world know what we believe Allah as one, and we seek common ground with all people to live in harmony and peace. … We must recognize that every life is sacred. Every human is sacred.” (The Imam’s statements are available at: http://www.islamonline.com/news/print.php?newid=272136).
The Imam wants to live in harmony and peace with all people even after knowing that Allah has ordered all Muslims not to befriend the Jews and the Christians, as they are friends to each other (the Quran; 5:51), and to kill them and all other non-Muslims who refuse to become Muslims by agreeing to believe in His Oneness, in the prophethood of Muhammad and the Quran!
Is what the Imam has said really believable?
I believe it is not. The Imam clearly lied in order to present Islam as a religion of peace to those people who are not aware of its true color. By cunningly hiding the truths about his religion, he also allayed the fear of those non-believers who know that Islam does not permit its followers to live in harmony and peace with them, and that they are nothing to the Muslims, but their enemies.
I am convinced that the Muslims have succeeded in their attempt and the Congress has clearly heard their strong message. However, we will have to wait for some time to find out whether or not the Congress will, knowingly or unknowingly, play into their hands.
Please do not let Muslims destroy you and the great country of America. Help it survive so that it can act as a savior of the world, and a beacon for mankind.
