Compulsion in religion


First a warning. Caveat Emptor. Buyer beware. Providing an exegesis of a Quranic verse is an ambitious task for a layman such as me, and I am unqualified. Everything right and true is from Allah, not from Al Azhar, not from Al Jazeera, not from Al Qaida, but from Allah. If there is wisdom in my words, and those words ring true for you, it is by His Will. It is my opinion that Believers should form their own opinion. So, test what I say in the laboratory of your own nervous system. If you independently agree with me, alhamdullillah, but don’t be pointing at me on The Last Day. In that context … this is the perfect verse to be discussing.

Too bad, with Islam there is compulsion in who has all the rights to rule your land, namely, Muslims, who are commanded by Allah to play Ramblin' Man by the Almond Brothers whenever they can. 2:257: "Allah is lord only of the believers, leading them from darkness into light. As for unbelievers, they are ruled by idols that lead them out of the light into darkness, and will end up as dwellers in Hell forever." Once they steal your land from you, as a non-believer, you have the option of converting and becoming one of them, or forever paying a punishment tax called jizya, while living with zero political power under the thumb of all Muslims, who are all considered superior to you because you're destined for Hell. And that's only if you're a Christian or Jew, what the Quran calls "people of the Book". If you're a pesky pagan, such as a Native American or Hindu, it's convert or be killed, money will never rhyme with something, Mister Cowell would you like some bad candy? Study the actual track record of Islam including what it did to India and would probably do to America if it could anytime free with the Historyscoper at
