Suhas Majumdar: Jihad i sharia

Jihad i sharia
Kapitel 9
Af Suhas Majumdar
Oversættelse af: Jihad in the Shariat
Kilde: Voice of Dharma
Udgivet på myIslam.dk: 18. maj 2015

I islam bliver udtrykket "sharia" ofte brugt til at betyde systemet af bestemmelser, der er givet i Koranen og hadith. Men jeg vil bruge det i en mere begrænset forstand - om de bestemmelser, som blev formuleret i retsskolerne, stiftet af de berømte imamer Hanifa, Hanbal, Malik og Shafii. Da Hanifas skole [den hanafittiske retsskole, o.a.] er den mest populære i den islamiske verden, vil jeg begrænse min opmærksomhed til den alene, og bruge sheik Burhanuddin Alis (d. 1198 AD) Hidayah [eller Hedaya, o.a.] til at give en fremstilling af sharia-lovens udtalelser om emnet jihad.
...

Noter

[1] The Hedaya, oversat af Hamilton, bog IX, kapitel II.
[2] Det er dog rimeligt at nævne, at imam Hanifas skole ikke er enstemmig på dette punkt.
Sri Suhas Majumdar underviser i matematik på et Calcutta-college. Han blev født i 1937 i en afsides landsby i Mymensingh-distriktet i Østbengalen, nu Bangladesh. Han har skrevet en hel del bøger på bengalsk om emnet: reinkarnationen af det 7. århundredes islam på nutidens Indiens jord. Han føler, han er særlig velegnet til at skrive om dette emne, eftersom hans tidlige dage forløb i skyggen af Noakhali-massakrene [i 1946, altså et år før uafhængigheden og delingen af Britisk Indien i Indien og Pakistan, o.a.]. Emnet har været i hans sind i de sidste 50 år, men det var først for nylig, efter at have læst afsnittet Kitab Al-Jihad Wa'l Siyar i Sahih Muslim, at ideen om at skrive en bog om emnet faldt ham ind. Kilde

GÄSTSKRIBENT SVANTE BRANDÄNGE: KORANENS HAT LEDDE TILL FOLKMORD


Från texten:

...
Befolkningen på arabiska halvön uppvisade på Muhammeds tid en religiös mångfald. Där fanns judar, kristna och anhängare till en äldre religion (kanske flera) i vilken man tillbad flera gudar. De senare personerna kallas månggudadyrkare i den gamla översättningen av Koranens arabiska text till svenska från 1917 (Karl Vilhelm Zetterstéen, KVZ). I den nya översättningen från 2002 (Mohammed Knut Bernström, MKB) får de heta avgudadyrkare. Religionen ifråga tycks ha varit vanlig bland de (delvis) nomadiserande som vi och KVZ kallar beduiner. MKB kallar dem ökenaraber.
Den grupp som Koranen bemöter minst fientligt är den kristna. För månggudadyrkarna gäller motsatsen. De utgör ett veritabelt hatobjekt. De omnämns ofta som de som ”sätter medhjälpare vid Guds sida”. Att göra så anser Koranen vara den största synden av alla: ”Gud förlåter inte den som sätter medhjälpare vid Hans sida, men Han förlåter den Han vill hans mindre synder; den som sätter medhjälpare vid Guds sida har drivit synden till dess yttersta gräns. Vad de anropar i Hans ställe är avgudabilder utan liv – ja, de anropar i själva verket Djävulen, den upproriske som .…”. (MKB 4:116-117). Några rader längre ned kommer domen: ”Helvetet skall bli deras slutliga hemvist, och därifrån kan de inte fly” (MKB 4:121).
Vår kunskap om månggudadyrkarna är mager. Det är svårt att förstå varför de var så hatade. Kanske höll de starkt fast vid sina traditioner och blev indignerade över muslimernas nitiska försök att omvända dem till islam? Mission kunde förr i världen bedrivas med stor grymhet. Kanske var de inte imponerade av de muslimska försöken att ”bevisa” att det bara kan finnas en enda gud. Till exempel: ”Men om det i himlen eller på jorden hade funnits gudar vid sidan av Gud skulle världsalltets ordning ha brutit samman!” (MKB 21:22).

...
Sura 9 är en av de allra sista som skrevs. Dess inledning redogör för den kommande slutliga uppgörelsen med månggudadyrkarna. Den mordiska versen 9:5 citeras ofta, men de följande raderna kan tolkas så att det är spridandet av islam som är huvudsaken. Hursomhelst är det en grym hänsynslöshet som texten uppvisar:
9:5: När de helgade månaderna gått till ända skall ni döda avgudadyrkarna, var ni än träffar på dem; tag dem till fånga och omringa dem och lägg er i försåt för dem. Men om de visar ånger och villighet att förrätta bönen och betala allmoseskatten, lämna dem då i fred – Gud är ständigt förlåtande, barmhärtig.
9:6: Om någon av avgudadyrkarna söker skydd hos dig, ge honom då ditt beskydd, så att han får höra Guds ord; för honom sedan till en plats där han är i trygghet. De är nämligen människor som inte vet vad Islam innebär.
Fullt förståeligt finns inte mycket uppgifter om 600-talets strider bevarade. Men en sak är säker: polyteisterna förlorade. Muhammed dog 632 e. Kr. och endast ett fåtal år därefter var hela arabiska halvön muslimsk. Den gamla polyteistiska kulturen utrotades och människor med den. Troligen var polyteisterna analfabeter och därför kunde bara muslimerna – segrarna – skriva historien. Om man kallar händelsen ett folkmord betyder inte det att alla på den förlorande sidan mördades; troligen överlevde många genom att anta islam. Tidiga exempel på ”omvändelse under galgen” alltså.
Det olustigaste i denna historia är nutida försvar av de gamla övergreppen. Hat som uttrycktes för 1400 år sedan är en sak, men hat som uttrycks i vår tid blir direkt obehagligt. På en muslimsk sajt besvarar en skribent en extern fråga angående ”Tolkning av vers 9:5 i Koranen”. Skribenten försvarar 600-talets utrotning av månggudadyrkarna:
”Detta då avgudadyrkan varken är en religion eller logisk livsåskådning utan bygger snarare på vidskepelse och är en vantro och fördärv som skadar hela samhället och mänskligheten och därav behöver utrotas”.
Hur kan skribenten anse att avgudadyrkan ”skadar hela samhället och mänskligheten”? Det är obegripligt. Man anar en påverkan från M. K. Bernströms text i sura 27, not 66:
”Dvs. de som förnekade livet efter döden och därmed människans slutliga ansvar för sina medvetna handlingar. Som framhållits i föregående not leder detta förnekande oundvikligen till förlust av all känsla för rätt och orätt, och detta i sin tur till andligt och socialt kaos och till samfunds och civilisationers undergång.”
Bernström verkar ha levt i en religiös bubbla där information om människans inneboende kvaliteter inte tycks ha nått honom. Han hade uppenbarligen en svart syn på människan och gjorde ett eländigt försök att urskulda folkmordet.

The Israeli army conducted an inquiry and found that “no direct fire was aimed at Abu Thuraya.” The army asked the Palestinians for precise details regarding the characteristics of his injury, but they refused to supply information. Given this refusal, the Israeli army was unable to determine the cause of death.

Thailand: Muslims murder three and wound 22 with jihad bomb at pork stall

Eating pork: a sin against Allah. Murdering those who sell pork: pleasing to Allah. Note Reuters’ subtle endorsement of this jihad violence, in terming it part of “resistance to Buddhist rule.” The operators of a pork stall in Yala are not oppressing Muslims, and murdering them is not “resistance” to anything, it is just obedience to the bloody Qur’anic command to “kill the idolaters wherever you find them” (9:5).
“Bomb at pork stall in market in Thailand’s south kills three, wounds 22,” Reuters, January 22, 2018:
BANGKOK (Reuters) – A motorcycle bomb exploded in a market in Thailand’s southern Yala province on Monday, killing three people and wounding 22, a spokesman for the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) said, the first such attack in the region in months.
The mostly Muslim provinces of Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala in Thailand’s far south are home to a long-running insurgency by ethnic Malay Muslims fighting for autonomy in which more than 6,000 people have been killed since 2004.
“The criminals put a bomb in a motorcycle and placed it next to a market cart. The force of the explosion caused three people to lose their lives,” said ISOC spokesman Pramote Prom-in. The ISOC is a government security force that operates in the region.
No group claimed immediate responsibility for the attack on Monday, which took place at a morning market.
Police said the motorcycle was placed near a stall selling pork, which is strictly forbidden for Muslims under Islamic Law.
It was not immediately clear whether the bomb was placed at the pork stall in a deliberate attempt to target Thai Buddhists.
The stall’s female owner and a male customer were among the three people killed, police said. The bomb blew off chunks of the market’s corrugated tin roof and wrecked nearby stalls….
Resistance to Buddhist rule from Bangkok has existed for decades in the predominantly Muslim southern provinces, waning briefly in the 1990s before resurfacing violently in 2004.

Trump administration pledges $55 million for religious and ethnic groups persecuted by the Islamic State

“The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced last week that the government will provide $75 million to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for aid to Iraq, including the $55 million earmarked for communities of Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities.”
The global “human rights community” has turned its back on these people, probably for fear of appearing to be “Islamophobic.” It is good of President Trump to dare to be “Islamophobic” enough to remember them.
“Knights of Columbus praise increased US aid for persecuted Iraqis,” Catholic News Agency, January 17, 2018 (thanks to Benedict):
Washington D.C., Jan 17, 2018 / 05:00 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The federal government has pledged $55 million in aid for religious and ethnic groups that have faced ISIS persecution in Iraq’s Ninewa Province, drawing praise from the Knights of Columbus, a supporter of humanitarian efforts in the region.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced last week that the government will provide $75 million to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for aid to Iraq, including the $55 million earmarked for communities of Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities. Future contributions from USAID will depend on the success of new accountability and transparency measures at the UN, according to the announcement.
The earmarked funds will help to rebuild communities in areas of Ninewa Province previously controlled by ISIS. According to USAID, the money will be used to restore basic services, like water, sewage, and electricity, as displaced religious minorities return to the region. Most of Ninewa’s religious minorities, including the majority of its Christian population, fled Mosul over the last decade. The Yazidi population had been persecuted by ISIS, and many Yazidi women were sold into sex slavery or killed.
The province, located in the northern part of Iraq, contains the city of Mosul, an ISIS stronghold until July of 2017, when it was decimated in the Battle of Mosul, which ousted ISIS and liberated the city. Mosul has still not recovered from the battle, which lasted for more than nine months.
Last year, speaking at the In Defense of Christians summit, Vice President Mike Pence promised to provide assistance for Christian communities in the Middle East that were at risk of being wiped out….

Honest Reporting: Free Speech in Gaza?



Reporters with the New York Times and the Independent (UK) interview Palestinians in Gaza. They believe that only some are comfortable being critical of Hamas. Why would anyone living under a terrorist regime, especially during a war, not be afraid to speak openly to the press? Do reporters honestly believe that Palestinians are happy being used as "human shields" by Hamas?

What does the Religion of Peace Teach About... Wife-Beating

What does the  Religion of Peace  Teach About... Wife-Beating

Wife-Beating

Does Islam allow a man to hit his wife? 

Yes, but only if she doesn't do as he asks. The beating must stop if the woman complies with her husband's demands. Behind verbal abuse and abandonment, beating is intended as last resort solution to coerce submission.
According her testimony in the Hadith, Muhammad physically struck his favorite wife for leaving the house without his permission. It is not known how he treated his less-favored wives.

Quran

Quran (4:34) - "Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great."  Contemporary translations sometimes water down the word 'beat', but it is the same one used in verse 8:12and clearly means 'to strike'.
Quran (38:44) - "And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath..."  Allah telling Job to beat his wife (Tafsir).

Hadith and Sira

Sahih Bukhari (72:715) - A woman came to Muhammad and begged him to stop her husband from beating her. Her skin was bruised so badly that it is described as being "greener" than the green veil she was wearing. Muhammad did not admonish her husband, but instead ordered her to return to him and submit to his sexual desires.

Sahih Bukhari (72:715) - "Aisha said, 'I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women'" Muhammad's own wife complained Muslim women were abused worse than other women.

Sahih Muslim (4:2127) - Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission. Aisha narrates, "He struck me on the chest which caused me pain."

Sahih Muslim (9:3506) - Muhammad's fathers-in-law (Abu Bakr and Umar) amused him by slapping his wives (Aisha and Hafsa) for annoying him. According to the Hadith, the prophet of Islam laughed upon hearing this.

Abu Dawud (2141) - "Iyas bin ‘Abd Allah bin Abi Dhubab reported the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not beat Allah’s handmaidens, but when ‘Umar came to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to beat them." (This is graded sahih - authentic) At first, Muhammad forbade men from beating their wives.  As the hadith indicates, he rescinded this once it was reported that women were becoming emboldened toward their husbands. Beatings in a Muslim marriage were deemed necessary at times to keep the woman in her place.

Abu Dawud (2142) - "The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife."  The authenticity of this chain of narration is characterized as daif (weak), however, a similar verse from Sunan Ibn Majah 3:9:1986 is said to be hasan (sufficient).

Abu Dawud (2126) - "A man from the Ansar called Basrah said: 'I married a virgin woman in her veil. When I entered upon her, I found her pregnant. (I mentioned this to the Prophet).' The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: 'She will get the dower, for you made her vagina lawful for you. The child will be your slave. When she has begotten (a child), flog her'" A Muslim man thinks he is getting a virgin for a wife, then finds out that she is pregnant. Muhammad tells him to treat the woman as a sex slave and then flog her after she delivers the child.  (Despite multiple chains of narration, this hadith is graded as daif).

Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 969 - Requires that a married woman be "put in a separate room and beaten lightly" if she "act in a sexual manner toward others." According to the Hadith, this can be for an offense as petty as merely being alone with a man to whom she is not related.

Kash-shaf (the revealer) of al-Zamkhshari (Vol. 1, p. 525) - [Muhammad said] "Hang up your scourge where your wife can see it"

Notes

Contemporary apologists often squirm over this relatively straightforward verse from the Quran (4:34) - which gives men the right to beat their wives if they have even a "fear" of disloyalty or disobedience.  Their rhetorical aerobics inspired us to write a separate article: 
 
Wife Beating- Good Enough for Muhammad, Good Enough for You
 
Others are not nearly as squeamish.  Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradhawi, one of the most respected Muslim clerics in the world, once made the famous (and somewhat ridiculous statement) that "It is forbidden to beat the woman, unless it is necessary."  He went on to say that "one may beat only to safeguard Islamic behavior," leaving no doubt that wife-beating is a matter of religious sanction.  (source)
 
Dr. Muzammil Saddiqi, the former president of ISNA (the Islamic Society of North America), a mainstream Muslim organization, says it is important that a wife "recognizes the authority of her husband in the house" and that he may use physical force if he is "sure it would improve the situation."  (source)
 
Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Muhammad Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the head of Al-Azhar, Sunni Islam's most prestigious institution says that "light beatings" and "punching" are part of a program to "reformthe wife" (source).  
 
CAIR's Dr. Jamal Badawi endorses corporal punishment as "another measure that may save the marriage" (source).   He doesn't make clear how striking a woman will make her more inclined to staying with her assailant, unless Badawi is implying that teh beating instills a fear of more serious consequences should if she attempt to leave. 
 
Egyptian cleric, Abd al-Rahman Mansour, said in a 2012 televised broadcast that, in addition to discouraging the wife from filing divorce, beatings would inspire the wife to "treat him with kindness and respect, and know that her husband has a higher status than her." (source)
 
During Ramadan of 2010, another cleric named Sa'd Arafat actually said the woman is "honored" by the beating (source).  No one else seemed terribly surprised or upset by this.
 
An undercover report from progressive Sweden in 2012 visited 10 mosques and found that 6 actually advised beaten women not to report the abuse to the police.  These women were also told that they must submit to non-consensual 'sex' with their husbands.  (source)
 
In the birthplace of Islam, about half of Saudi women are beaten at home.  "Hands and sticks were found to be used mostly in beating women, following by men’s head cover and to a lesser extent, sharp objects." (source)

In 2016, the Council of Islamic Ideology proposed a bill - ironically named the Protection of Women against Violence Act - that actually included exceptions for "lightly beating" defiant wives.  (source
 
According to Islamic law, a husband may strike his wife for any one of the following four reasons:
- She does not attempt to make herself beautiful for him (ie. "let's herself go")
- She refuses to meet his sexual demands
- She leaves the house without his permission or for a "legitimate reason"
- She neglects her religious duties
Any of these are also sufficient grounds for divorce.
 
Respected Quran scholars in the past interpreted verse 4:34 with impressive candor.  Tabari said that it means to "admonish them, but if they refused to repent, then tie them up in their homes and beat them until they obey Allah’s commands toward you."  Qurtubi told wife-beaters to avoid breaking bones, if possible, but added that "it is not a crime if it leads to death."

Muslim apologists sometimes say that Muhammad ordered that women not be harmed, but they are actually basing this on what he said before or during a battle, such as in Bukhari (59:447)when Muhammad issued an order for all the men of Qurayza be killed and the women and children taken as slaves.  (Having your husband murdered and being forced into sexual slavery apparently doesn't qualify as "harm" under the Islamic model).
 
But, in fact, there are a number of cases in which Muhammad did have women killed in the most brutal fashion.  One was Asma bint Marwan, a mother or five, who wrote a poem criticizing the Medinans for accepting Muhammad after he had ordered the murder of an elderly man.  In this case, the prophet's assassins literally pulled a nursing infant from her breast and stabbed her to death.
 
After taking Mecca in 630, Muhammad also ordered the murder of a slave girl who had merely made up songs mocking him.  The Hadith are rife with accounts of women planted in the ground on Muhammad's command and pelted to death with stones for sexual immorality - yet the prophet of Islam actually encouraged his own men to rape women captured in battle (Abu Dawood 2150, Muslim 3433) and did not punish them for killing non-Muslim women (as Khalid ibn Walid did on several occasions - see Ibn Ishaq 838 and 856).
 
In summary, according to the Qur'an, Hadith and Islamic law, a woman may indeed have physical harm done to her if the circumstances warrant, with one such allowance being in the case of disobedience.  This certainly does not mean that all Muslim men beat their wives, only that Islam permits them to do so.
