“There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Prophet”.
That is the Shahada , the first pillar of Islam, which is considered by Muslims to be the most unifying of all the pillars. Islam is Islam, no matter where in the world it is practiced. If you are a Muslim, this is your belief.
Muslims also use Taqiyyah, or the art of deception. According to the classic book of Islamic Law, the Reliance of the Traveller it states:Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746 – 8.2) – “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible (N:i.e. when the purpose of lying is to circumvent someone who is preventing one from doing something permissible), and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… it is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression..
These are the two things Nashvillians must keep in mind, as they ponder to vote for Muslim woman Zulfat Suara, as she runs for an at large seat on the Nashville Metro Council.
As Ms. Suara stands for LGBTQ, her own faith tells her this:
Quran (7:80-84) – “…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” –
Hadith (Abu Dawud 4462 and al-Tirmidhi 1456) if a man comes upon a man, then they are both adulterers,” “If a woman comes upon a woman, they are both Adulteresses,” “When a man mounts another man, the throne of God shakes,” and “Kill the one that is doing it and also kill the one that it is being done to.”
As Ms Suara embraces Jewish “friends” Avi Poster and Judith Saks her faith directs her to this:
Quran (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people
Quran (3:85) – “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”
Quran (3:10) – “(As for) those who disbelieve, surely neither their wealth nor their children shall avail them in the least against Allah, and these it is who are the fuel of the fire.”
But as Ms.Suara embraces her Jewish friend Ms. Saks, Ms. Saks stands against anti-Semitism, as her friend Ms. Suara embraces extreme anti- Semites.
As the final days approach, Nashville TN voters must choose who they want to serve on the Metro Council. Will Zulfat Suara’s deceptiveness matter to those who have already supported her? Will someone Like Judith Saks, a Jew who stands against Antisemitism continue to embrace someone who stands with those that hate her?
Be prepared Tennessee, if elected, the deceit will only have just begun.
