YUSUFALI: Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good- to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess: For Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious;-
PICKTHAL: And serve Allah. Ascribe no thing as partner unto Him. (Show) kindness unto parents, and unto near kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and unto the neighbour who is of kin (unto you) and the neighbour who is not of kin, and the fellow-traveller and the wayfarer and (the slaves) whom your right hands possess. Lo! Allah loveth not such as are proud and boastful,
SHAKIR: And serve Allah and do not associate any thing with Him and be good to the parents and to the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the neighbor of (your) kin and the alien neighbor, and the companion in a journey and the wayfarer and those whom your right hands possess; surely Allah does not love him who is proud, boastful;
There will doubtless be skeptics and Islamophobes who will have to be persuaded of the wisdom of adopting such a course, which they will find objectionable and frightening.
- If Islam is Judaism Lite, Secular Koranism is Islam Lite.
- Secular Koranism is the vaccination for Radical Islam. Think of Edward Jenner and his immunisation programme. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Jenner Secular Koranism is cow pox and Radical Islam is small pox.
- The problem with Muslims is that they prefer the Hadith to the Koran, even as they acknowledge the Koran to be the revealed Word of God, while the Hadith was compiled by fallible humans.
- Muslims cannot bring themselves to reject the Hadith where it is contradicted by the Koran for to do so would be considered heresy by most of their fellow Muslims.
- What Islamophobes hate about Islam comes from the Hadith.
- If the Koran says "all animals are equal" the Hadith says "but some animals are more equal than others".
- The Koran is well-drafted enough to withstand a literal interpretation.
- Thesis = Old Testament; Antithesis = New Testament; Synthesis = Koran.
- The Koran has less harsh punishments than the Old Testament.
- The hatred the West have for Islam is based mainly on cultural chauvinism and the belief that brown and backward people whom they have conquered cannot possibly have a better religion than Christianity.
- Napoleon Hill, who wrote THINK AND GROW RICH, promoted Islam. http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.co.uk/2009/03/think-and-grow-rich-author-napoleon.html
- Man created God to protect him from the slut.
- All the Abrahamic faiths promote the same moral precepts. The moral precepts promoted by the Abrahamic faiths bring about social cohesion, which protects your society from internal and external enemies.
- Who are the internal enemies of a society? Sluts and socialists.
- The patriarchy is maintained by the precepts of the Abrahamic faiths.
- The matriarchy reasserts itself when the precepts of the Abrahamic faiths are abandoned.
- All advanced societies are patriarchal, and all declining and primitive societies are matriarchal.
- A patriarchy is a society that condones male promiscuity while a matriarchy is a society that condones female promiscuity.
- Female promiscuity facilitates male promiscuity.
- Male promiscuity is more easily checked by women being told not to be sluts.
- A slut is a woman who has extramarital sex.
- The evil the prohibition against extramarital sex was intended to prevent is widespread bastardy.
- Widespread bastardy leads to widespread degeneracy and racial and national decline, leading eventually to civilisational extinction.
- Only the Koran will save the West from feminism and allow it to go back to basics now.
- To tolerate sluts means to tolerate bastards, to tolerate both means to tolerate a cancer growing within your society whose numbers grow exponentially. To say it is OK for women to be sluts means you are saying it is OK for your race and nation to breed an inferior, criminal, unproductive, degenerate and parasitical race within your race at the expense of the productive.
- The defect of Christianity is that it requires a corrupt and corruptible priesthood who will interpret scripture to suit the political orthodoxy of the time, eg gay marriage.
- The advantage of Islam is the Koran whose clearly-drafted precepts are easily translatable into legal principles.
- The law restrains the extent of our immorality. "The people are the grass, the law the wind. When the wind blows, the grass will bend."
- A legal system infused with Koranic principles can dispense with the need of for a corrupt and corruptible priesthood to maintain and promote morality.
- Secular Koranism - a legal system and not a belief system - can be interpreted and applied by a non-Muslim judiciary.
