Lloyd#12: 8 areas of ‘Commanding the Right & Forbidding the wrong’ [Video]

Lloyd De Jongh’s Complete Archives can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiyIXknJOnGXmnYB3UrXaHQ/community?lb=UgkxzjLOQlFjElsEXyuW-XrsAnXW9g70paltLloyd continues with his 2nd episode on “Commanding the Right and Forbidding the Wrong”, unpacking each of the 8 areas in detail, while at the end we then applied it to what has been happening to Hatun Tash over the last 9 years, and in particular a week ago, on June 26th, 2022.The Reliance of the Traveler, book Q, outlines each of the 8 categories in sequence:1) If you find someone who is carrying out anything which is forbidden (i.e. drinking wine, or playing a musical instrument), you as a Muslim are obliged to enter their house without first asking.2) You then must go to that person and tell them what they are doing wrong.3) To begin with be polite with them and see if they respond.4) If they don’t pay attention, then you must “revile them using harsh, abusive, or hateful words”, such as “You degenerate”, or “Idiot”, or “You ignoramus”. Abraham in Surah 21:67 is used by Muslims as an example where he says, “Fie on you…can you not think”?5) If they still desist, than you can use your hands to either pour out the wine (but don’t break the bottle), or destroy the instrument. You are not obliged to pay for the damage you have incurred, because these are sacred acts.6) After doing the damage, you can then intimidate them by saying “Stop, or I will…”7) Following that you are permitted to assault them by hitting them, or punching or kicking them, or even (according to the Reliance of the Traveler) seize their houses, or kidnap their wives!8) Lastly, you can use the “force of arms” with the help of other male believers against anyone who does that which is forbidden in Islam.As we talked about these 8 categories Muslims are to do in order to “Command the right and forbid the wrong”, we saw that they have all been used against our good friend and colleague Hatun Tash. She has been hassled, ridiculed, and heckled weekly at Speaker’s Corner for years. Away from the corner she has been beaten by groups of Muslim men, and arrested numerous times by the police at the request of the Muslims. She has had Muslims enter her house, break down her door, and forced her to live on the street. She has had her foot broken, her ribs broken, and her neck almost broken by trying to hang her…all of which are supported and even promoted by the Reliance of the Traveler.That now explains why Hatun has been abused so much and for so long. She needs our prayers. © Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(66,170) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#11: Muslims are ALL obligated to DOMINATE US! [Video]

Lloyd De Jongh’s Complete Archives can be found here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1BGrC1fxB-ym-ZQ64TtfYEG0vQtYCOIL6Lloyd now moves into one of the strongest injunctions of Shariah, that which is best known as “Commanding the Right and Forbidding the Wrong”.According to a well known Arabic phrase, “Al-Wala wal-Bara” Muslim are to Hate anything and anyone who stands against Islam, and its prophet. This phrase can also mean “Loyalty and Disavowal”, or “loving and hating”.In the Sha’afi manual, “Reliance of the Traveler”, Book Q, it points out that Muslims, in order to ‘Command that which is right’, are obliged to tell people what to do, and it splits it up into 2 categories of obligations: 1) Fard al Ain = Personal Obligations, and 2) Fard al Kifayah = Communal Obligations.It is the latter obligation which is the most important, as it dictates what Muslims are to do with those who don’t do what is right, but instead do what is wrong. If a Muslim refuses to follow these communal obligations, than Allah will abandon them.Lloyd goes into 8 obligations, which are:1) Muslims must first know what is wrong2) They must then explain what is wrong to those who don’t know3) They then forbid that which is wrong using slander if need be4) If the person desists, they then must censor them using harsh words5) If they still continue, then they must right the wrong with their hands6) From there they must use Intimidation7) This is followed by an assault against the person8) And finally, they can use force if need beThese can especially be in the context of going into someone’s home and destroying their wine, or any crosses they may find, or destroying any musical instruments they may hear being played; anything Islam considers Haram (forbidden), even in the West.Al Ghazzali, one of Islam’s foremost philosophers said, “Commanding the right is the most fundamental of ones’ religion, and without it Islam would cease”.Even the Qur’an supports it in Surah 3:104, where it “confronts vice and supports virtue”.When Muslims say that this can only be carried out in a Muslim context, Lloyd reminds them that it must be done by ALL Muslims, not just those in a Muslim context, which means even Muslims in the West are obliged to carry out these injunctions.He then went into 5 levels of censuring those who do wrong:1) Explain their wrong to them 2) Tell them that they have wronged 3) revile them, using verbal abuse and hateful language 4) Forcibly stop the act, and 5) Intimidate the person to the point of hitting them with your hands.Lloyd continues that even in the West these injunctions are to be obeyed and followed.Further, it says in Book Q that Muslims are not to inform on other Muslims to the police, or foreign authorities.Ironically, in Book Q it also says that they are to stop the wrong as long as they can win, and they themselves don’t get hurt, so that they are obliged to correct what they deem is wrong, providing they don’t cause the others to retaliate, and in doing so, hurt them; rather cowardly, don’t you think?These injunctions help explain why so many radical Muslims in the West are so aggressive and downright rude and often hateful in public. They aren’t interested in appealing to us, or winning us over with a loving witness. They know these texts intimately, and so understand that they are obliged to dominate us, intimidate us, and to eradicate anything they find distasteful, such as Hatun’s T-shirt, or her ‘Holey’ Qur’an.No wonder so many Muslims that we meet in the West come across as such ‘jerks’. It’s not their fault at all. It is their Shariah law which makes them so aggressive and so impossible to be around.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(66,120) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#10: Aqeedah Creed is why Muslims are Secretive! [Video]

Full Research Archive link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1BGrC1fxB-ym-ZQ64TtfYEG0vQtYCOIL6?usp=sharing The Aqeedah Creed, according to Lloyd is the Islamic ‘Statement of Faith’ which is equivalent to our Christian ‘Nicaea Creed’. It was created in the 9th century, and dictates what Muslims are to believe, without any questions or any doubts, or any uncertainties.Basically it established the orthodox beliefs every Muslim is to follow, and refutes any deviations from those beliefs.Thus, if a Muslim is in doubt, they must simply say “Allah knows best”, and then just accept what they are told to do.Lloyd then went on to say that these beliefs within the Creed Muslim must submit to are requisite for their heart alone, but not spoken with their mouth openly.The one sacrosanct law is that they must never permit any imperfection of Muhammad’s character to be spoken openly.Believing in your heart but not your mouth stands in direct contradiction to what we believe as Christians. In Romans 10:9 which says “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved”.Christians must say exactly what they believe publicly and openly, while Muslims must never say what they believe openly, in direct contrast.That is why Muslims will tell you whatever you want to hear, and will tell you just the opposite of what they believe, because they are not to divulge their beliefs publicly. No wonder we can never know what our Muslim friends believe or practice, because they are obliged not to say so to us or any other non-Muslims what they know.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(66,070) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Hatun is ARRESTED yet AGAIN! What was her crime? [Video]

Today, June 26, 2022, Hatun Tash was at Speaker’s Corner as she normally is on any given Sunday. But today, something happened which gets me angry.She was wearing her customary Charlie Hebdo T-shirt, with a cartoon on the front and the back, and was holding up a Qur’an with holes punched through it with the outline of Mickey Mouse, not something I would do, nor would I recommend you do either. But for Hatun, this was just another Sunday afternoon.But, why was she wearing and carrying these seemingly offensive items for Muslims? For 2 reasons:1) To remind people of what happened to the editors of Charlie Hebdo magazine, and to remind the Muslims of the ‘Holes in the Standard Islamic Narrative coined by Dr Yasir Qadhi two years ago when referring to the many problems with the argument for the Qur’an’s preservation, an argument which Hatun is mostly responsible for when she found and bought 26 different Arabic Qur’ans back in 2016 and held them up at Speaker’s Corner for the whole world to see.2) Speaker’s Corner is considered by many to be the ‘bastion of Freedom of Speech’ worldwide, the last place where we can hold up items which are offensive to anyone, includng Muslims. So, Hatun uses and flaunts that freedom to preserve the freedom of Speech which so many of us have fought for and have come to love so much. She does it for us.So, today, while holding up her “holey Qur’an” a Muslim crept up behind her and grabbed it and ran off with it. Others in her team were blocked by other Muslims from running after him.Hatun, finally resolved with the fact that she wasn’t going to see her Qur’an again, began to set up her camera equipment to begin her talk, when suddenly the police came, and began to arrest her, dragging her away against her protests, to the delight of the Muslims who began taunting her, and throwing things at her as the Police, holding her arms in a pincer lock, frog-marched her to the waiting police vans, whereupon they whisked her off to her prison cell where she remains even as I write.So, here is my question. They have charged her with “Suspicion of Criminal Damage”, but what criminal damage has Hatun done?Watch the video and see if she has damaged anything which belongs to someone else. The Qur’an which was stolen was hers, not theirs. She bought it and has been taking it down to the Speaker’s Corner for years. So, she is the victim here.Why then was she arrested, and why were the Muslims who stole her Qur’an (who then paraded it around the Corner after the police had gone), not arrested, or even questioned?An elderly Christian lady was knocked down during the arrest and hurt; so, why were the police not concerned for her safety, or the safety of Hatun’s cameramen, who were jostled, pushed and shoved by the Muslims during the arrest?Either the British police are inept, or they are cowards, and only go after the weak ones, like Hatun, in the crowd, knowing that they can strong arm her and defuse the situation without having to anger the many more Muslims there.But what does that say about our freedoms to speak or even mock? And what now will happen to Speaker’s Corner, now that the Muslims need only call the police every time Hatun annoys them, proving that her arguments are too difficult for them to answer, thus forcing them to hide behind the police in order to censure her.This is not a good day for ‘freedom of speech’, but an even worse day for the authenticity of the Qur’an or for any credibility Muslims may have hoped to gain for their treasured ‘Holey book’!Getting Hatun arrested is not only cowardly, but will not stop her and others from continuing to publicly question the Qur’ans authenticity historically, and its relevancy for the 21st century.Let’s continue to pray for Hatun, and support her, which you can do by simply going to her DCCI Ministries YouTube site where you can send her some money by using the PayPal button in the upper right hand corner (or go to this url: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/dcciministries2019?locale.x=en_GB)© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(66,020) Music: “New Beginning” by Rafael Krux, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#9: Islam must replace Christianity, & stop dissent! [Video]

So, what is the purpose of Islam, according to Lloyd?Lloyd first refers to the Christian Commission in Matthew 28 and Acts 1:8 stipulating that this commission only tells Christians to go into the world and preach in the name of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All Christians are to do is talk and let others decide whether they want to accept the message or reject it.In Islam there is also a Great Commission, which can be found in the ‘Book of Q” which is in the ‘Reliance of the Traveler’. It is known as “Commanding the Right and Forbidding the Wrong”, and starts from the premise that Muslims are to forbid anything which would prohibit the practice of Shariah law (even for the non-Muslims).It gives 7 areas or sequences by which Muslims must impose this commission on others:1) They must first explain what is wrong2) Then the Forbid it3) Censor anyone who continues to do it4) Right the wrong by the use of one’s hand 5) Intimidate those who continue to do it6) Assault them if they refuse to obey7) And finally use the ‘force of Arms’ for those who desist.Slander is another area which Muslims are permitted to do against others, but not the other way around.Lloyd then went into the dictum, “I and my brother against our father, I and my brother and our father against the village, I and our village against the other village…” and so on, a set of enlarging concentric of circles concerning ones “Hierarchy of Loyalties” they must have depending on who they are up against, which finally comes down to ‘them vs us’.Muslims, whenever they are away from ‘Dar al Islam’ (the house of Islam) and move into ‘Dar al Harb’ (the house of War = the West), must always support the other Muslims, regardless of what they have done.Lloyd ended by pointing to Surah 4:157 which he says replaces Christianity with Islam theologically, and Surah 3:104 which commands the right, and forbids the wrong politically.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(66,020) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#8: ABRAHAM hated us, so ISLAM Abrogates us! [Video]

According to Lloyd there are a number of forms of Abrogation, including the well known Qur’anic form found in Surahs 2:106 and 16:101 which refer to the later Medinan Nasikh verses (the abrogator) that abrogate the earlier Meccan Mansukh verses (the abrogated).A second form of abrogation which Lloyd refers to is that of the Mantuk and Mafun form of abrogation which are found within Shariah law, which itself has the highest and strongest category of authority, and therefore Shariah can abrogate both the Qur’an and the Hadith, as it comes later. Though it then cannot be abrogated by any further area of authority.Lloyd continues that in the ‘Reliance of the Traveler’, the manual for the Shaafi school of Fiqh (W4.0) it stipulates that Christianity is to be abrogated by Islam, relegating Christianity to the status of a cult, with Islam designated as the final, and therefore most authoritative of all faiths.Another reason Christianity is to be abrogated by Islam is due to the reference in Surah 60:4 where Abraham is noted for hating the Jews who surround him, because they refused to believe in Allah, a rather odd historical anachronism, since neither the name, nor the god ‘Allah’ existed that early, in 1900 BC.Nonetheless, due to this verse, the doctrine of “Al Walaa wa Baraa” (the doctrine of hatred towards Jews and Christians) was created, and has become one of the driving forces behind Muslim’s hatred of Jews and Christians right down the centuries, including today.Since Abraham hated the Jews of his day, those who came in the line of Isaac, Muslims are required to hate Jews and Christians today, carrying on that hatred of those in the line of Isaac.This stands in direct contrast to what we read in Genesis 17:18-20 where God told Abraham that he would bless the sons of Ishmael, but His covenant was uniquely reserved for Isaac and his descendants, not Ishmael.So, Lloyd reminds us that this hatred which Muslims posses for us as Christians and Jews is due to Shariah law’s indictment of us, because of the belief that Abraham hated Jews. And since he hated Jews, Muslims are to hate Jews and Christians the same.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(65,920) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#7: Don’t Doubt Islam, leading to apostasy, & Death! [Video]

According to Lloyd, doubt towards Muhammad, or of God is completely illegal in Islam. In the Qur’an it speaks about “Commanding the right and forbidding the wrong”, which assumes that doubt of one’s religious beliefs is not permitted.In the Shaafi manual “The Reliance of the Traveler” (Section A4.2) it stipulates that a believer is to “believe everything the prophet says, without any doubt”.As for the Mujtahid’s (the 4 scholars of Shariah), they are not required to provide any evidence for what they say or institute. Their views are absolute, and should never be questioned. No discussions are permitted on what they say, even on the finer points. Believers must just obey and submit to their injunctions.In section A7.2 in the ‘Reliance of the Traveler’ it is written that there is “unlawful knowledge”, which is sorcery for laypeople, and the use of philosophy (defined as the love of wisdom).Those who doubt, according to Lloyd, must be punished by reading the Tafsir. If, after they read it, they are still in doubt, they then are deemed apostate, and must be put to death.It’s a prefect totalitarian system which allows the Mujtahids complete freedom to create whatever law they deem worthy, with no recourse, no discussion, and no critique; just complete obeisance and submission.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(65,830) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#6: Don’t Insult the Prophet, ‘ON PAIN of DEATH’! [Video]

In Islam there are 3 categories of authority, according to Lloyd. The highest is Al-Ghazali (d.1111), followed by the 4 scholars, the “Mujtahid Mutlaq” (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi and Hanbali), followed by the “Sheikh al-Islam” which number 30, and this hierarchy in Islam has an absolute authority for pronouncing judgement on others.In the “Unsheathed Sword”, written by Ibn Taymiyyah (d.1328) one finds the punishments against anyone who insults the prophet of Islam. In chapters 1-3 it says clearly that anyone who insults the prophet must be killed, regardless of whether they are Muslim or a non-believer.Even if they repent, they still must be killed, to which all 4 of the Mujtahid’s agreed. So there is no recourse for the guilty party. The Qur’anic support for this punishment can be found in Surah 8:39, according to Lloyd.Lloyd also suggested that an insult-er can be lashed, but that this would continue until he was dead.Ibn Qayyim, a student of Ibn Taymiyyah wrote the “Guidance to the Uncertain”, where he gave further instructions to Muslims stipulating that Muslims can insult Christians, but not the other way around.In fact, in his book, there are copious denigrating and slanderous references against Christian, suggesting that the Christians urinated when they prayed and worshiped.He also denigrated Jesus, saying that he came through a woman who urinates, defecates, and menstruates, and while in Mary’s tummy Jesus “wobbled” between these three places for 9 months.Lloyd notes that this kind of slander against Christians and against Jesus have been practiced wholesale by Muslims ever since, proving there is a double-standard when applying insults in Islam, as it only is permitted one way.Yet, when we simply quote these sorts of references, or even when we quote Muslim sources verbatim, we are punished for insulting the prophet. Does anyone notice the irony with this law, or its application, suggesting that their prophet cannot take any form of insult, because he simply is not strong enough, or worthy enough to stand up to these insults.Whereas Jesus Christ, for 2,000 years (including during his lifetime) was abused and denigrated, yet he continues to stand firm and resolute, remaining impervious to such insults. There are no equivalent laws in Christianity against insulting Jesus, or our God, or our Bible, because they all three stand above any insults.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(65,750) Music: “Epic Heroic Conquest” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Shabir Ally Destroys Qur’anic Preservation in 17 MINUTES! [Video]

Dr Shabir Ally, on June 13, 2022 was asked by his daughter Dr Safiyya Ally, how Muslims can accept the findings of the Sana’a Manuscript which has writings in its lower Palimpsest text that do not conform to the upper text, nor to the Qur’an today (i.e. the lower text has 63 verses with 70 differences from our present Qur’an)?You can see that 17-minute interview on “Let the Qur’an Speak” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxTpkV8SCQA&t=11sNote just how many damaging admissions Dr Ally made in the description box of his video above, where he says “The Sanaa palimpsest is an erased Quranic manuscript found in 1972 that was written over with a different version of the Quran. The upper text corresponds with the Uthmanic Quran that Muslims read today. The lower text showed variations, though not to the extent that it significantly alters Muslim beliefs and practices. Dr. Shabir Ally explains that the Sanaa palimpsest cuts away at the popular idea that the Quran has been preserved dot by dot, letter by letter, the way it was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. At the same time, it removes suspicion in academic circles that differences in the Quranic manuscripts were glossed over when Uthman the Caliph prescribed a single copy to the Muslim world. Dr. Shabir says Muslims can be confident that the Uthmanic Quran we have now was produced in the lifetime of the companions who lived and walked with the Prophet Muhammad and is grounded in scholarly scrutiny and the best representation of what they knew collectively that the Prophet had preached in their presence. Therefore we have full confidence that the Quran is the revelation of God to the Prophet Muhammad.”In his video on the subject, Dr Ally made 6 damaging admissions in his response to this question on the Sana’a MSS:1) The Lower layer was indeed different from the upper layer with “significant variations”, though he claimed they didn’t change any doctrine, theology, or practice. Nonetheless, this is his first public admission that there could have been another Qur’an from that of Uthman’s canonical Qur’an.2) This Sana’a Manuscript was actually “pre-Uthmanic” and could have come from other early collections by Ubay ibn Ka’ab (who lived in Damascus, who had 116 Suras in his Qur’an), or from Ibn Masu’d’s Qur’an (from Baghdad, who had only 110 Suras in his Qur’an). Yet, since Uthman’s Qur’an had 114 Suras, Shabir is admitting yet again that there were different Qur’ans.3) That Uthman’s Qur’an “accurately represented the preaching of Muhammad”. But how does he know, since it didn’t agree with the other codices of the companions of the prophet, and it was written 20 years after Muhammad died? Why would this one be better or worse than the other differing codices (Dr Arthur Jeffery in 1935, by looking at the differences between these codices which were noted in the Traditions, came up with 15,000 differences between them).4) That the oft repeated claim by almost 99.9% of all Muslims today that there have been no changes to the Qur’an, that our Qur’an today is exactly the same, “Word for Word, and Letter for Letter” like that of Uthman’s Qur’an, Dr Ally believes is only said by “idiots” and is not “Academic”, because scholars know that there have been additions and accretions, and deletions. Yet, again, another admission of the fallacy of preservation!5) That the Sana’a manuscript’s palimpsest (with the differences between the two layers) proves that there was no suppression by Uthman of the final Qur’an; yet he just admitted earlier that the companion codices were suppressed by Uthman, and had he read Bukahri’s account of the Qur’an’s creation, he would have seen that Uthman burned every codice which didn’t agree with his codex, proving that there were all kinds of suppression.6) That Uthman’s Qur’an was produced “With scholarly scrutiny of their collective representation of what they knew Muhammad had said. Much like the Gospel writers (Peter, James and John) recollections of what Jesus said and did, so was the Qur’an written down.” What an admission! Dr Ally is basically admitting in his conclusion that the Qur’an is not eternal, nor is it derived from ‘preserved tablets’ in heaven, nor was it ‘guarded by Allah from any changes’ (Surahs 10:15; 18:27; 15:9 & 85:21-22), but that it is nothing other than a document written by men (the companions ofthe prophet) years after the fact, made up of their “recollections” of what Muhammad possibly said and what he possibly did.In 17 minutes, Dr Shabir Ally has demoted the Qur’an from an “eternal text”, preserved by Allah himself, to nothing more than a book like any other book, written by men who wrote down what they remembered another man said or did.With these 6 admissions, Dr Ally, in one fell swoop, has destroyed the Qur’an’s Perfect Preservation.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(65,610) Music: “Feeling the Caribbean Sun” by Horst Hoffmann, from filmmusic-io

Lloyd#5: Shariah is So Cruel that it must remain a Secret! [Video]

Lloyd begins this segment by stating that in the West most Muslims know little to nothing about Shariah Law, and that shouldn’t surprise us, since even if they did know they are not permitted to speak to anyone outside of Islam concerning it, because that would damage Islam.And how exactly would it damage Islam? Lloyd suggests that since Shariah law is so cruel and barbarous, especially by people living in the West who are familiar with ‘Judeo-Christian’ inspired law, it would pale in comparison.For that reason, Shariah and the Qur’an, Lloyd continues, were only to be read by Muslims, and not by others outside of Islam. That is why often when we open a Qur’an in public Muslims try to take it from us, or ask us not to read it.One can see why, as soon as they begin to read it, due to the many verses in the Qur’an which attack non-believers and invoke violence against them (i.e. Surahs 9:5, 29; 8:39; 47:4; 5:51, as well as the roughly 150 violent passages for other areas throughout, etc…).The problem is that today Qur’ans are easily available today in English, permitting anyone to read these violent passages, thus the reason Muslims have an injunction not to reveal what these passages mean, or speak about Shariah Law, which, according to Lloyd is a ‘working out’ in real time of what the Qur’an instigates.Lloyd then states that much of Shariah Law has been borrowed from the Babylonian Talmud, especially those passages which demand that it must be imposed by persuasion or by force.The Sources for Shariah are: •Islamic and Talmudic Jurisprudence: The Four Roots of Islamic Law and Their TalmudicCounterparts – Judith R. Wegner (@844605)•Was al-Shafii the Master Architect of Islamic Jurisprudence? – Wael B. Hallaq @164536•Reliance of the Traveller / Umdat al Salik, Manual of Sacred Islamic Law•The Hedaya•The Brill Encyclopaedia of Islam, 13 volumes•The Brill Encyclopaedia of the Quran, 6 volumes•Digest of Moohummadan Law•Ihya Ulum al Din•Other authoritative legal and academic sources as requiredIn Surah 42:13 it states that all Muslims are to obey the ‘Deen’ of Muhammad, which abrogates the Shariah of Jesus.It is unfortunate, Lloyd continues, that there are no early Arabic written texts for Shariah, so that Muslims have had to depend on earlier Jewish and Christian sources for their material (see Judith Wegner’s “Islamic and Talmudic Jurisprudence”).Once the Muslims copied the material which they borrowed, they then destroyed the original documents from which they had borrowed them, leaving us no real sources to look at.Nonetheless, Jewish and Muslim law are both similarly based on divine law, which they both believe is revealed to each prophet throughout the ages.The Jews from 100 AD – 500 ADThe Muslims from 600 AD – 800 AD, and then added to up to 1300 AD.The four legal scholars for the Shariah were known as “Mujtahid Mutlaq”.Shafai explained it best when he stated that “The Sunnah expands upon the Qur’an” and that was why it is so important for Muslims today (taken from John Burton “The Sources of Islamic Law”)Lloyd De Jongh’s Archives:Full Research Archive link: @olders/1BGrC1fxB-ym-ZQ64TtfYEG0vQtYCOIL6Reliance of the Traveller – Umdat al Salik (Sacred Islamic law): @1ByYbgLPhHE4rkyQ-k-ovrQ5l55kEhf9m/viewHedaya Volume 2: @1hAGYnqXO5g0RpzUje3_uuN9K6GUaCtrE/viewIslamic and Talmudic Jurisprudence: The Four Roots of Islamic Law and Their Talmudic Counterparts – Judith R.

Al Fadi & Jay Explain how Dr Qadhi Damaged the Qur’an! [Video]

Al Fadi invited Dr Jay Smith to come on to his CIRA International YouTube channel on June 8, 2022 to help unpack and explain what happened two years earlier, on June 8, 2020, when Mohammed Hijab asked in a YouTube interview with Dr Yasir Qadhi (one of the leading authorities on the Qur’an in the English speaking world), to tell him which of the 30 official Qira’at Qur’ans was the one which was given to Muhammad in the 7th century?While much of the academic world knew of this problem, no one of any note from within Islam had ever admitted publicly that there were 30 different Qur’ans, nor that the differences were in the tens of thousands of variant letters and differing words.By admitting this problem in such a public forum, hundreds of Muslims have subsequently left Islam, and have blamed Dr Qadhi for their apostasy.This interview did so much damage to the integrity of the Qur’an, destroying any notion that the Qur’an has been perfectly preserved eternally, that we have decided every year to commemorate this day, June 8, as the “Hole in the Standard Islamic Narrative” day, and plan to remind the world of it each year as an annual celebration.So, enjoy this interview between Al Fadi and Dr Jay as they help explain exactly what happened that fateful day, two years ago© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(65,500) Music: “Quantum Technology” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io

Revisiting Qadhi’s Disastrous Interview on Qur’anic Preservation [Video]

Two years ago, on June 8, 2020 (today’s date), Mohammed Hijab had a 28 minute Zoom Interview with Dr Yasir Qadhi concerning the problem of the 30+ different Qur’anic Qira’ats (Readings, which are really different words and phrases in each Qur’an). In the interview he asked him twice which of the 30 different Qur’ans was the one which Muhammad introduced in 632 AD?After 28 minutes of listening to Dr Qadhi ‘dance around the bush’ trying to desperately not to answer his question, he finally admitted that all of the 30+ Qira’at Qur’ans were included in Muhammad’s original Qur’an, either forgetting or not knowing that there are over 93,000 textual differences between the 30+ Qur’ans.Basically he admitted in that interview what he had never dared to say publicly for the previous 25 years; namely, that the Hafs Qur’an Muslims use today was not perfectly preserved, but was recreated in various renditions by over 30 different authors, with “a little bit of this and a little bit of that” added here-and-there, forcing the Muslim authorities in Cairo in 1924 to choose just one of the 30 as the official Qur’an. They chose the Hafs text, which was then made official world-wide by the Saudi Arabian authorities in 1985, just 37 years ago!Due to these admissions in this interview, there was so much anger on their two YouTubes channels, that Hijab and Qadhi had to turn off the ‘comments’ section after two weeks, and by August, two months later they both completely deleted the interview off their respective channels.To celebrate that disastrous interview, and commemorate that fateful day, Jay has decided to share with you just 9 minutes of the best quotes by Qadhi and Hijab, and then unpack the significance of what exactly they were saying then for Muslims now, especially those who continue to say that the Qur’an is not only eternal, but was perfectly preserved, including every letter and every word.After this interview, no Muslim should ever say such a thing again.© Pfander Centre for Apologetics – US, 2022(65,430) Music: “Sweet Sunset” by Musiclfiles, from filmmusic-io
