Taqiyya - islamic deceit
DR BILL WARNER - Taqiyya
I’d like to talk to you about what I find a fascinating topic that is the topic of Islamic ethics, but in particular, a part of Islamic ethics which is called sacred deception or Taqiyya.
Let me give you a few ethical rules that come from the Hadith:
a Muslim does not cheat another Muslim in business
a Muslim doesn’t kill another Muslim
a Muslim doesn’t touch another Muslim’s wife and
a Muslim doesn’t lie to another Muslim
You notice something here? That’s right. You and I are left out because you see Islam is not a symmetric ethical system. The golden rule is symmetric. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That is, there’s a balance here; the other and yourself are seen as equal. But in Islam if you’re a Kafir, you’re never equal to the Muslim. Islam does not have a golden rule. The Kafir is always inferior.
Now then, let’s talk about lying and deception. First let’s start with the fact that Allah has 99 names and one of those 99 names is he is the best of deceivers.
But Allah is also the best of plotters and schemers so given that, it isn’t too surprising that we find in the
Koran 16:106 “Those who disbelieve in Allah after having believed, who open up their hearts to disbelief will feel the wrath of Allah and have a terrible punishment.”
In other words, apostates can be killed or otherwise punished. But it goes further. “But there is no punishment for anyone who is compelled to deny Allah in words but whose heart is faithful.” So in other words, a Muslim can lie about Islam if it serves Islam. And one of the ways he can serve Islam is that the Muslim is not discriminated against.
Here we have another in
Koran 3:28: “Believers should not take Kafirs (unbelievers) as friends in preference to other believers. Who ever does this shall have no relationship left with Allah.” (In other words, if you’re a real friend [to a Kafir], you’re no longer friend of Allah). “ . . . unless you but guard yourself against them [Kafirs], taking precautions.”
What this is interpreted to mean is that a Muslim can act friendly but he’s not actually the friend. That’s what is wrong. In other words, a Muslim may never give preference to a Kafir over a Muslim. There are, by the way, no less than 12 verses which say that a Muslim is not the friend of the Kafir.
Now let’s turn to the Hadith.
“Mohammed: ‘Who will kill Ka’b bin Ashraf who has offended Allah and his prophet?’
A Muslim: ‘I will Mohammed. Would you have me do so?’
‘In order to kill him, I will need to deceive him. May I do that?’
So, the Muslim deceived Ka’b bin Ashraf and he did kill him.
What is this? This is the Sunna of Mohammed; it is possible to lie to the Kafir as long as it advances Islam. This is the nature of Taqiyya.
Now there is another way in which a Muslim can lie. There’s a hadith, a fairly well-known hadith, in which there are three reasons for Muslims to lie. One is jihad, that is the struggle against the Kafir. So a Muslim can lie to you anytime he needs to advance Islam
The other is a Muslim a lie to another Muslim if it will make the situation better. And a husband and wife may lie to each other as long as it smooths the relationships in the household.
So deception is part of Islam. Allah is a deceiver. Mohammed was a deceiver, and therefore, every Muslim can be a deceiver. It is so special that it has a name, Taqiyya. So the next time you’re hearing something about Islam that just doesn’t sound right, and it comes from the mouth of a Muslim, you’re right. It’s not right. It’s a lie. It is Taqiyyah.
WHAT IS TAQIYYA? - #1 of 2
Islam uses deceit in dealing with Kafirs – TAQIYYA. It amounts to being two-faced, loose with the truth. It can mean outright lying, or saying a half truth to be deliberately misleading, or otherwise concealing the real intention. It may be permissible lying or obligatory lying. Both are a clear manifestation of “the end justifies the means” – the end being the protection and advancement of Islam. Islamic spokesmen are generally masters of Taqiyya, and they succeed calamitously in confusing us Kafirs about the nature and intentions of Islam. When you hear an Islamic spokesman on the media, take what he says with a bushel of salt.
Taqiyya is only one of FOUR different techniques for confusing or misleading Kafirs. Others include:
(2) KITHMAN - telling only part of the truth – like saying "I hate Hitler" when the real meaning continues "because he didn't kill all the Jews". Or when a Muslim says that that JIHAD really means “a spiritual struggle”, and fails to add that this particular definition is an 11th century invention that originated from a fabricated hadith which is universally rejected by Islamic scholars. This misleads by holding back the true violent nature of jihad;
(3) MURUNA - using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings, and not appear Islamic, so as to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and trust their Muslim counterpart, opening them to terrorist attack. Muslims will sometimes shave off their beards, wear western clothing, or even drink alcohol to blend in with non-Muslims;
(4) TAWRIYA - concealing, or "creative lying". Here are two examples:
It is OK to break the intent of an oath, as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath. (Reliance of the Traveler, sections o19.1 and o19.5)
Consider this: Sura 1 of the Koran is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day. Verses 5 to 7 say:
“Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.”
Suppose someone protests that Sura 1 of the Koran demeans Christians and Jews. A Muslim might respond, “Sura 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practising tawriya, because while Sura 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, he knows full-well that the words “those” refer respectively to Jews and Christians.
Islamic doctrine has no hangup about truth and honesty. Its supreme ethic is “The end justifies the means.”
So when a Muslim spokesman speaks nice-sounding words completely at variance with the behaviour of Islam that's on display all around the world – he is using one or other of Islam’s forms of permissible or obligatory LYING.
For a comparison with Christianity, note that Jesus says in Matthew 5:37: “Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”

What is TAQIYYA? - #2 of 2
Have a look at this graphic. You need to take these statements with a grain of salt. For starters, the word Islam doesn’t mean peace, it means submission.
A classic Taqiyya gambit is to quote a “mild” verse of the Koran in full knowledge that it has been abrogated (overturned) by a later, violent one. Like Koran 2:256 – “There is no compulsion in religion.” This is abrogated by many verses after it. The very next sura (chapter) chronologically - the second one "revealed" from Medina - says:
Koran 8:39 – "And fight them [the unbelievers] until there is no fitnah [rebellion] and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah."
Muslim apologists (Taqiyya merchants) love to quote Sura 5:32 as proof that Islam is peaceful. The bit they quote is “whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. …”
This is classic, deceptive, taking out of context. The complete passage reads:
5:32 - For that cause We decreed FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.
[This is an oblique reference to the murder of Abel by Cain in Genesis 4, and the subsequent covenant with Noah in Genesis 9.]
But the VERY NEXT verse after that humane stuff in 5:32 says:
5:33 - The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be KILLED OR CRUCIFIED, or have their HANDS AND FEET ON ALTERNATE SIDES CUT OFF, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom;
34. Save those who repent before ye overpower them.
Taqiyya like that using Koran 5:32 is sickening, and people who believe it are utterly deceived because of their refusal to READ the Islamic scriptures and look honestly at the empirical evidence of Islam's behaviour over 1400 years.
