This was from The Telegraph (UK). There were many other articles on this guy all over the internet. They all started like this:
“Muslim Jubel Miah….”
All of them, I am not kidding.
Audio: Chilling 911 call made by suicidal father moments before he massacred family of five
The man was Bryan Sweatt. I don’t know if he was Catholic or Christian Or Jewish or Atheist. I also don’t care and neither should anyone else, he was a sick person and what he did can’t be used to judge whatever community he belonged to.
But if the guy is Muslim, then we read comments or even the point of view of the person writing the article, informing us that he did this because that is what Muslims do.
No they don’t. Not practicing, devout Muslims. Just the same as a devout, practicing Christian, or Jew or good person would never harm another person.
For one thing how do these people know he was devout? He was a drug dealer for God’s sakes! Islam discourages alcohol, what do you think it would say about drugs? Drugs are prohibited in Islam.
The other thing is he beat his wife. It is not allowed in Islam.
I know some there are so many people out there who will pull out their handy dandy notebook full of quotes. Quotes that are wrongly translated and shoved out into the world to promote hate. So here is that famous verse from the Holy Quran:
Oh you don’t know Arabic? Well here maybe this will help:
Explanation (tafsir) of Sura 4:34
“Men are the support of women as God gives some more means than others, and because they spend of their wealth (to provide for them). So women who are virtuous are obedient to God and guard the hidden as God has guarded it. As for women you feel are averse, talk to them suasively; then leave them alone in bed (without molesting them) and go to bed with them (when they are willing). If they open out to you, do not seek an excuse for blaming them. Surely God is sublime and great.” http://www.islamtomorrow.com/women/treatment.asp
Men are ordered by Islam to provide for women, women don’t have to work if they don’t want to. Just saying.
“Leave them alone in bed….” as in let them know you are upset and are sleeping ‘on the sofa tonight’. And by the way this was for women whose husbands realized they were being disloyal to them, not just because they burnt the toast in the morning. I think the guy has that right if he finds his wife is fooling around behind his back.
Even then God is saying give her a chance to come around and then if she does don’t blame her again for it. Unfortunately the word meaning ‘chastise’ is misinterpreted as ‘beat’ by people who like to beat their wives and people who like to trash Islam.
Oh yes there it is, the little handy dandy note book! Yes the punishment for adultery is death:
1. ”If a man is found sleeping with another man’s wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die.“
2.”If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife–with the wife of his neighbor–both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.“
3. ”If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.“
But guess what ?
1. Deuteronomy 22:22
And under the Law of Moses death was by stoning.
The Noble Qur’an An-Nur 24:2
“The woman and the man guilty of adultery, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allâh’s Law).”
The Noble Qur’an An-Nur 24:4
“And those who accuse chaste women, and produce not four witnesses, flog them(accusers) with eighty stripes, and reject their testimony forever, they indeed are the Fâsiqûn (liars, rebellious, disobedient to Allâh).”
If there aren’t four witnesses there is no punishment!
The Noble Qur’an An-Nur 24:6-9
6. And for those who accuse their wives, but have no witnesses except themselves, let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies (i.e. testifies four times) by Allâh that he is one of those who speak the truth.
7. And the fifth (testimony) (should be) the invoking of the Curse of Allâh on him if he be of those who tell a lie (against her).
8. But it shall avert the punishment (of stoning to death) from her, if she bears witness four times by Allâh, that he (her husband) is telling a lie.
9. And the fifth (testimony) should be that the Wrath of Allâh be upon her if he (her husband) speaks the truth.
So the husband can testify, however if the wife says she didn’t do it, her testimony stands and there is no punishment. If the husband is found to be lying he gets the punishment instead and if the wife was lying but no one finds out her punishment is with God. And if a man is guilty he gets the same punishment.
So that was to take care of the handy dandy notebook quote for adultery. Now for how to treat women.
(From:http://www.unveilingislam.org/5WomenTreatWivesSADIQ.html) These are verses from Quran.
- To be free from bondage of slavery. Ch.4:19
- To be treated kindly. Ch.4:19
- To be treated with respect. Ch.9:71
- To be kept in good-fellowship, or “let them go in kindness”. Ch. 2:229
- To be set free in kindness (in cases of divorce) and not to be retained for injury. Ch.2:231
- To seek an arbiter, for her protection, if her husband fears desertion or rebellion by
her. Ch. 4:35
- To seek an arbiter, for her protection, if she fears ii-usage or desertion from her
In his last sermon the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stressed on treating women with kindness:
O my people! You have certain rights over your wives and so have your wives over you—
They are the trust of Allah in your hands, so you must treat them with all kindness.”
” Admonish your wives with kindness.”
(Page 790, 8500 Precious Gems, Allahdin Publications)
“ A person who ill-treats his wife during the day and loves her at night, acts in complete
contradiction of the beauty of human nature.”
( Page 801, 8500 Precious Gems, – Allahdin Publications)
” Woman is fragile like glass, and men should therefore treat women with delicacy and
tenderness as they would handle an article made of glass.”
( Page 801, 8500 Precious Gems, Allahdin Publications)
“The more civil and the kinder is a Muslim to his wife, the more perfect of faith he has; fear God
with reference to two meek beings, woman and orphan.”
Jubel Miah forced his wife to wear a naqab (full face veil).
“And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known.”
And say to them. SAY. You can’t force them.
My point is this, why the hell do the headlines mention this insane man is Muslim? Nothing he did was according to Islam. How many headlines mention the religion of murderers, rapists, pedophiles, drug dealers etc etc if they aren’t Muslim?
