True Islam is a very Tolerant and Forgiving Religion – wink wink


True Islam is a very Tolerant and Forgiving Religion – wink wink
by Shazde Asdola Mirza

Yesterday evening, was watching the news and like so many other Muslims, I too was thinking; “What the hell is wrong with our religion?” Needed to call someone and ask, so phoned a learned friend who is a trained Islamologist … well, he actually is a pathologist, but potaeto – potaato. That’s the gist of what he had to say (Naghl-e-be-Ma’ni):

Islam means “surrender” and therefore is a perpetual cause for self-righteous people who seek dominance over others, to encourage forceful struggle (Jihad). Of course in theory, Islam means surrender to Allah, but where is Allah when we all need to surrender to him/her/it? Is s/he/it in Koran … a collection of poorly copied Jewish stories and a bunch of contradictory edicts and idioms? Can we find Allah in the words of Mohammad – which are even more confused and conflicting? The best source for the true meaning of “surrender” is in the deeds of Mo (the so called Sonnat).

The desire to dominate, to steal, to rape and to kill was the central theme of the Arabic “culture” at the time of Mohammad. Their heroes and legends were marauders and brutes that were praised in Arab folklore and poems, for their “brave” acts of murder, kidnapping and ravaging.

At first, in Mecca, Mohammad tried to fight that brutality and teach some of the Jewish ethics to the savage Ishmaelite. But they threw camel crap at him and beat him with sticks, for being a lunatic who couldn’t understand his own people. 10 years of that sort of torment turned Mo inside-out.

When he ran away to Medina, as soon as he called upon the faithful to “… attack the Qureshi caravans, take their money and kill their men …” - all the eager savages of Arabia replied: ‘now you are talking the good prophet … Ahlan Va Sahlan Marhaba’!

When Mo encouraged the horny and blood thirsty tribesmen to “… kill the Jews and take their wealth …” all of a sudden, followers showed up from far and wide corners of Arabia … ready to “surrender” to the will of Allah!

Surrender-or-die is the sure recipe for perpetual animosity and war. This opens the door to constant fighting among Muslims, which started almost as soon as Mohammad passed away! Every chief claimed to be the Caliph and the true representative of Allah … and the Muslims have since fought each other and killed each other, more than they have fought even the non-Muslims! All because you should surrender to me … otherwise I will beat you, kill you and take your possessions.

We are inherently intolerant and demand submission and surrender from everyone else. Naturally, the order of might-is-right has ruled the Muslim world since the beginning. In the world of surrender-or-die, the people who are different, who are vulnerable or who are simply to be disposed, are labeled as Kaafer and treated the Islamic way; “… kill their adult males and enslave their women and children.” This mentality has made Muslims the most fanatical and aggressive bunch among the religions.

But don’t worry, when the 12th Imam reappears, he will bring peace to earth, by killing almost everyone! Until that day … here is looking at you, kid!

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

self importance, significance, self promotion, vanity are all fed well under the banner submssion/surrender.

So many needs are met, yet not in a healthy sustainable way, good blog all the same.

ali yarete

by hamsade ghadimi on

shazdeh, i enjoyed your story.  so you mean cat stevens is wrong when he says islam "literally means peace?"  religions are all about "surrender," especially the missionary ones.  islam seems to outdo other religions in the surrender business by requiring its followers to pray in arabic, face the godforsaken land of arabia when doing so, and even go to mecca (sometimes spending one's lifelong savings) to demonstrate their piety.

the story you told definitely should be included in your collection of "bad stories for bad kids."  here's another one that you should consider:

once an aghazadeh and a devout christian get stranded on an island.  although they were both devoutly religious, they decide to help with each other’s sexual desires.  they conclude that no one will ever have to know if and when they get rescued.  so they draw straws as who will get to go first!  the christian wins and the aghazadeh, true to his word, pulls down his pants and assumes his position, similar to a position when praying and facing mecca.  As soon as the christian was going to enter, the aghazadeh desperate to forego his burden yells “jesus christ.” The christian loses his erection and tells aghazadeh “as a true christian, i cannot go on with this act as it is against my religion.  but i will honor my oath to you and you may do whatever to satisfy yourself.”  (in other words, turn the other cheek) so the christian assumes the position but decides to do the same thing to the aghazadeh.  having learned from him the figures of respect in shiism, he yells out “ya ali” when the aghazadeh was about to commit the act.  the aghazadeh replies “ali yareteh” and commits the act.

Great article but when  "We are inherently intolerant and demand submission and surrender from everyone else" some is due to culture and just islam .

Ferdowsi, Rumi, Saadi and Hafez all diverted from "True Islam"

by Shazde Asdola Mirza on

In fact almost all of our Iranian authors, scholars, scientists and notables have been fiercely anti FundaMental Islam. They more or less all belonged to the FARAMARZI school of muslimism ... except for the toilet part - where they used other names like "Mofti - Mohtasab - Imam".

I once read somewhere that he met her in a Brothel house and fell in love with her and later took over the operation!? Is there any truth to that?

I enjoyed reading your article specially the part that deals with going to khalla or mostrah and need to unload. Your definition of being a harmless and effective Muslim is well taken. Be a good person and don't bug anyone.

The Good Islam!

by Faramarz on

Actually Shazde there is good Islam that is being practiced by the majority of us Iranians who live in the west. It is non-violent and it helps us in difficult situations. It is also very practical. Unlike, the rest of the Muslims, we don’t pray or go to the mosque. We don’t fast or pay Khoms or Zakaat. But we rely on Islam and ask for divine intervention when it really matters.

For example, when we want to lift a heavy box or push a car that is stuck in the snow, we say, “Yaa Ali!” and we get the inner strength beyond what we thought was possible. When we buy a lottery ticket and we want better odds, we say,”Khoda yaa komak kon!” When our girlfriend/wife/date questions our true intentions we say, “Be Khoda ghasam, I love you!” Or when a western man falls in love with a cute Iranian girl and wants to marry her, but she insists on a traditional ceremony, the guy just repeats a few verses of Quran (that he does not understand) after the Akhoond and he becomes an instant Muslim. Very Practical! And finally, when we are sitting on the toilette seat and having bowel movement challenges, we push hard and say, “Khomeini, dastam be daamanet!” and magically things work!

So you see, there is good Islam that is being practiced by us every day (no winking or blinking), it is just that we need to teach it to the other 1 billion Muslims.

Thanks for writing!

Brother AssDola jan

If you had used all the "zoor"  and "zarb" that you applied to discredit Islam in your own little ways to one of your habitual bathroom activities, then you could have "relieved" yourself of all the tension and stress you have been caused by the radical elements of the anti-Islamic regime of Iran. In you own words brother:

Good question. I'm not sure whether crazy people like AN created Islam, or Islam has created so many crazies. I guess it's a chicken-and-egg thing!

My jaw dropped, thinking "Brutus, to ham?"...until I saw your wink-wink :-)

Great blog! Actually, today one of my friends asked me to summarize Quran and Islam! I tried to come up with a good one liner but I couldn't, because - in my teen years-- as soon as I'd reached "sooreh Nessaa", I stopped reading the rest of Quran ...Now I can refer her to your blog!

Thank you! Az.


Excellent Analysis Shazde

by divaneh on

Do you think it is that demand for submission that drives people such as Ahmadinejad to expect the whole world to surrender to their wicked ways?
