Refuting Political Islam's Claims using open source software.

Well in my last post's comments Rohitj asked to clarify to what extent Politicalislam.com's claims are correct.Well to disprove him i'll use an opensource Quran study software for Linux called Zekr. It is a brilliant software by which you can study Quran in whatevr language you want :).

Now lets start by his first claim.

As an example, there is never any reference to humanity as a unified whole. Instead there is a division into believer and kafir (unbeliever).
Right..Here is my answer , a quote from quran searched using the Zekr software :).

(Quran 49:13) O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.
Now this verse Doesn't speak about believer and unbelievers I guess?.His Second claim is

Humanity is not seen as one body, but is divided into whether the person believes Mohammed is the prophet of Allah or not.
Well , Its so obvious dude.. World is divided into people who are men and who aren't (women).But anyway to disprove you again I quote this verse..
(Quran 114:3)Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind
The King of mankind,
The god of mankind,
From the evil of the sneaking whisperer,
Who whispereth in the hearts of mankind,
Of the jinn and of mankind.
Here it does not say God of believers , king of believers etc .

I would like to go on further but i would be wasting my time.But instead ill explain what tactic he used.Let me Quote a verse out of context from Quran.
(Quran 2:190)And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.


Like if i Quoted this verse alone you would say that Quran is speaking of violence and is discriminatory right ?Now let me quote the full verse in context, i.e quoting a few verses before and after it,

Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.
And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.
But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrong-doers.
Here the verse doesn't refer to disbelievers perse , It refers to the ones who persecuted Prophet mohammed (peace be upon him). It asks to fight against those who persecute and attack you.It doesn't say to go out in the maket and kill anybody you can find.Like what would you do if a few hooligans come and beatup all your family and throw you out of your house ? would say " I am a peaceful person , i will not harm thou" .Obiviously no .. you would defend youselves by attacking them.SIMPLE. It even says Allah doesn't like aggressors , What more proof do you want ?

Please dont quote verses out of context.And please dont believe what every drunken idiot like this political islam guy says.

Oh btw here is a screenshot of Zekr.

First of all, I didn't claim anything. I did not write that blog. Rather in the comment I said that the blog post is biased :P...

Second of all, you gave translations of other verses. How about you explain the meaning of the verses that the blogpost criticizes.

Again, I am being neutral here.
