The Threat of Islam

“But when the prohibited months [holy months] have expired,

slay such polytheists wherever you find them

and capture them and besiege them

and lie in wait for them in every place

from which it is possible to perceive the enemy

and watch their movements” (sura 9:5)

The Threat of Islam

“I will not, most certainly suffer the deed

of any doer (of good) from among you…to be lost…

Hence those who have emigrated,

and have been driven out of their homes,

and have been persecuted in My cause,

and who have fought and been killed,

surely I will absolve them of their evils and will, of course,

admit them into Gardens served with running streams,

a reward from Allah” (sura 3:195)
