Taken from the 20th
issue of Nida 'ul Islam Magazine, September-October 1997
This article sheds some light on where the extremist views from the Muslim
world come from. In Muslim countries there is no free press, and the state
run media is filled with this kind of propaganda. There is also no
shortage of similar articles on the internet and similar views are taught in
Islamic schools. Most Christians would be shocked to know what is being
taught about their beliefs, missionary work, and lifestyles in Islamic schools,
newspapers, and magazines around the world.
Missionaries in the Muslim World
In the Washington Post,
February 22nd, the CIA admitted a "controversial loophole" that permits
the agency to "employ clerics and missionaries for clandestine work
During famines, you will
find them swarming to our lands under the cloak of 'aid' or 'relief' work.
They will bring aid and relief but it isn't given to the Muslims for free
- it does have a price.
If you go to a missionary
church in a typical African country you'll find that it resembles a mosque
more than the archetypal church. The worshippers stand in rows during
prayer and sit on the ground in circles during classes... When reciting
the bible they even use a style of recitation exactly the same as the
Qura'nic Tajweed. It's all a calculated deception...
Perhaps the most insidious
method used by the missionaries is to kidnap Muslim children from war-torn
countries and sell them to non-Muslims to raise as disbelievers.
"And from those who
call themselves Christians, We took their covenant, but they have abandoned a
good part of the Message that was sent to them. So We planted amongst them
enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection (when they discarded Allah's
Book, disobeyed Allah's Messengers and His Orders and transgressed beyond bounds
in Allah's disobedience), and Allah will inform them of what they used to do."
In evangelical jargon
they call it the 10/40 window. The 10/40 window is the rectangle with boundaries
of latitudes 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator. To the modern day crusaders
of the Christian missions it is exactly what China is to the Coca Cola company -
one billion people just dying to hear the message. The 10/40 window takes in the
newly independent states of Central Asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Middle East
and part of Africa.
This region has become
the target of unprecedented efforts by Christian missionaries to convert the
Muslims to their religion. Like a cancerous growth, we are seeing Christians
gain a foothold in the lands of the believers. The first time these crusading
forces came with swords and suits of armor, this time they arrive with credit
cards and million-dollar aid cheques. Employing Faustian machinations, these
human shayateen are converting many Muslims to their false religion and serving
to inject a virulent poison into the stream of the Ummah. The Muslim
world is under attack.
has spread all over the world rapidly and with amazing acceptance. As such, the
shirk and kufr of Christianity is under threat. In response, they
are 'fighting back' through escalated missionary activity. Christian Aid
provides an excellent insight into 'why they do it' in their pamphlet
documenting missionary efforts in Nigeria:
"Folake left a
successful career in journalism to answer God's call to take the gospel to women
in purdah--the practice of keeping Muslim women from being seen by any man other
than their husbands. They are practically prisoners in their houses. If they go
out, they must be completely covered except for their eyes."
As can be seen from
this quote, they are motivated by their desire to mislead our brothers and
sisters. They want our sisters to walk around exposing themselves shamelessly in
the same manner that kafir women do. They want our sisters to leave their
homes and wander the streets. They want us to disbelieve in the Revelation and
they want to extinguish the light of truth that is Islam. They are calling us to
the worship of Taghoot and thus they are calling us to hellfire.
groups are present in every corner of the Muslim world. World Vision is perhaps
one of the most prolific and probably the organisation with which most
Australians are familiar, thanks to their sappy media campaign. Many will
remember their work during the Somalian famine in which they showed images
revealing the Awra of emaciated Muslims and pleaded with us to give them
money. Alhamdulillah, the Muslim is kind-hearted and many Muslims donated money
to this fund under the illusion it would be used to provide food for the needy.
Rest assured that World Vision is not the altruistic humanitarian organisation
they would have us believe, but rather a kafir missionary organisation.
Their mission is not to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted with
hardship, but rather to convert them. In their mission statement, World Vision
describe themselves as "an international partnership of Christians whose mission
is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ". World Vision's "Changing Lives"
document provides the best insight into their true agenda and should serve as
ample warning to the global Muslim community. "We preach Christ crucified not
only through the words we share, but through our deeds... (We are) acting as the
hand and feet of Jesus... In many cases, new churches are emerging where none
existed before, and others are being strengthened." In addition to the many
millions of dollars tricked out of the public, this organisation also receives
annually over US$30 million from the US government, United Nations and other
multilateral agencies to support their evangelism.
"MUSLIMS: IT'S THEIR TURN"
Almost all of the
world's missionary organisations are targeting Muslims. Frontiers, for example,
is a major mission group devoted completely to converting believers. They boast
that "through creative approaches, patient sowing, and fearless proclamation,
more Muslims have come to Christ in the last 25 years than in the previous 1,400
years combined!" The Mesa, Arizona-based group claims to have 500 missionaries
in 30 countries, or about 20% of all North American Protestant missionaries
serving among Muslims. Frontiers seeks missionaries for the 90's with the motto:
"Muslims. It's their turn. It's all we do. Whatever it takes."
What does it take and
what are these "creative approaches"? Murder, sexual assault, kidnapping and
calculated deception are a few. More on this later.
Without a doubt
however, the Christians are paying their closest attention to Africa, Indonesia
and Malaysia. Africa in particular is a major target. The Catholic Pope himself
has visited Africa on seven separate occasions as part of his announced plan to
transform Africa into a Christian continent by the year 2000. Has the plan of
our enemies worked? Well, the Council of Muslims in Africa says that in Malawi,
for example, the percentage of Muslims has dropped from 66% to 17% in half a
century. Similar figures are found in many other African states. In 1900, there
were just 9 million Christians in Africa (9% of the population). In 1980, the
population had grown to over 200 million! At this current rate of growth, it can
be predicted that by the year 2000, there will be 390 million Christians in
Africa, or 48% of the population.
METHODOLOGY OF THE MISSIONARY
"O you who believe!
Take not as your Bitanah (supporters) those outside your religion since they
will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely.
Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is
far worse. Indeed, we have made plain to you the ayat if you understand."
The methodology of the
Chrismiss is reflective of the hatred and contempt they hold for Allah and His
religion. For instance, when natural disasters or war affects the Muslims, we
will find the missionaries salivating at the mouths at the opportunity to
convert more believers to their false religion. During famines, you will find
them swarming to our lands under the cloak of 'aid' or 'relief' work. They will
bring aid and relief but it isn't given to the Muslims for free - it does have a
price. The price is commit apostasy and join the fold of Christianity.
It is also a
well-known fact that the missionary organisations work in close conjunction with
the CIA in a 'you scratch our back, we'll scratch yours' capacity. In the
Washington Post, February 22nd, the CIA admitted a "controversial loophole" that
permits the agency to "employ clerics and missionaries for clandestine work
overseas". This said, one can only imagine what evil the two have perpetrated
against humanity over the years! It certainly doesn't fit with the image of the
Christian as 'meek and mild', does it?
By far, the most
popular long-term method has been to establish front export businesses in order
to gain access to the target country. Alhamdulillah, many Muslim nations still
do not openly allow missionary organisations in. However, often the Kufar
work around this by starting branch offices of companies overseas or enter as
consultants. Cindy Brown, an American kafir missionary, speaks with pride
of her husband who set up a fake landscaping business in Atlanta, USA: "It's
real tough getting into Malaysia because it's such a closed Muslim nation. But
the good Lord has been opening doors. We couldn't openly go for a while but then
Mike got hired as a consultant with permanent resident status there."

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.
"The company that
hired us is owned by Muslims, but there are some Christians on the Board of
Directors who helped us get in. It's kinda funny that a Muslim-owned company has
opened the way for us to spread the Gospel in Malaysia. You gotta love the
Ahmad Baharrudin of
the Malaysian Islamic Study Group, a leading Muslim student organisation, says
that the problem of apostasy amongst Muslim Malays, especially young sisters, is
alarming. "Every year, the Department of Religious Affairs changes many Muslim
names to Christian names", says Baharrudin.
TOOLS OF THE TRADE
Christian deception forms the basis of their evangelism and the inspiration of
their weapons in the war against Islam.
If you go to a
missionary church in a typical African country you'll find that it resembles a
mosque more than the archetypal church. The worshippers stand in rows during
prayer and sit on the ground in circles during classes. The traditional pulpit
of the preacher has given way to the minbar. When reciting the bible they
even use a style of recitation exactly the same as the Qura'nic Tajweed.
It's all a calculated deception to ensnare the unsuspecting Muslim into thinking
that Christianity is 'not so bad' and 'is just like Islam'.
They have developed
material specifically targeting Muslims, for instance the widely distributed "Shahadat
Al-Qur'an" book. In this and other books, they quote the Qura'nic verse
[An-Nisaa: 171] referring to Jesus (AS) as a Prophet, a Word and a Spirit. They
then apply their own satanic tafseer and claim that this refers to the
trinity! Of course, this is a lie because Allah blew in Adam (AS) and gave His
Word to others besides Jesus (AS) such as Muhammad (s.a.w.). In addition, they
publish fabricated stories of Muslims who 'discovered the truth' and became
Christian. These stories are distributed in pamphlets and also via radio
stations and act to weaken the Iman of the Muslim community.
missionaries are also attempting to draw many Muslims into their trap through
redefining Christianity to something more acceptable to the norms of the
believers. In Africa especially, they have made some startling concessions to
try and confuse and ensnare the ignorant. For instance, they hold their services
on Fridays (Jumu'ah) and they even allow polygamy. You will also find the
missionaries use Islamic expressions such as "bismillah" "Jesus Alaihi
Salam" and "Allah Subhanah" to decieve the Muslims. They might even
go so far as to say that Islam is indeed a religion from God, however
Christianity was not abrogated!
It should not be
surprising that many Muslims who fall into these traps do not even realize it.
For instance, the Christian missionaries are taught not to inform the Muslims
that they believe Jesus (AS) is the son of Allah. Instead they might say he is
the "spirit of Allah" which is closer to the Islamic understanding.
The "educational aid"
provided by these "humanitarian" organisations is a myth. World Vision's
"education aid" consists of, according to their documentation, "Bible studies,
Christian literature, Sunday School classes, and spiritual counseling". A course
in Kufr! Of course, they also give a few classes in conventional subjects
such as English (albeit only to such a level that the young Muslim can succumb
to the manipulation of Western media), maths, et al. However, the overall thrust
of this educational experience is not to produce educated individuals, so much
as it is to produce obedient Christians.
In its most extreme
form, the Christian church has developed institutions within schools and
universities to ensnare Muslims. In recent years, Egyptian Muslims have had a
problem with some American missionary organisations capturing young Muslim girls
and pressuring them to participate in immoral activities and then photographing
them. They then use these photos to blackmail the sisters into taking part in
Christian activities such as Sunday school, camps, and so forth. There are now
Christian terrorist groups in Egypt that operate with the tacit approval of the
state and the funding of the American and European missions; these are usually
spread in the country areas with large Christian concentrations.
Perhaps the most
insidious method used by the missionaries is to kidnap Muslim children from
war-torn countries and sell them to non-Muslims to raise as disbelievers. This
problem reached endemic proportions in Bosnia where Christian aid organisations
were kidnapping young Muslim children with alarming frequency. Currently, there
is a fight in England where Hassan Keranovic, a Bosnian, has attempted to
reclaim his grand-daughter, Edita, who was kidnapped. She was then sent to
England to be raised to pray to a man who, on the day of judgement, will weep
that so many took him as a God. Even though the court ruled the adoption as
invalid, they still ordered the child to stay with her adoptive parents because
of the 'trauma' of losing her 'new family'. Usually these children are under 3
years old so they are not old enough to know anything about their religion
(Islam) and thus accept Christianity and grow up praying to the cross and idols.
A similar incident occurred some years ago in Albania where a missionary group
bought an orphanage of Muslim children in order to turn them into disbelievers.
"If a good befalls
you, it grieves them, but if some evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if
you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqun not the least harm will their cunning
do to you. Surely, Allah surrounds all that they do."
The root of the
problem is a failure on our part - a failure to implement Islam correctly on a
personal and governmental level. An exposition of this problem is really an
article in itself, however, I will attempt to address some of these weaknesses
Our personal failures
to practice Islam have meant that many Muslims have been easily led astray by
the Shaytan. In Africa and Indonesia, for instance, the belief of the
common Muslim is a mesh of Islam and paganism. This lack of understanding of
true Islam has meant that the well-read Christian missionary could use his or
her superior knowledge of our religion to present 'evidences' from our own
sources. This evidence naturallytwisted and contorted, however, to the ignorant
Muslim it is often highly convincing and casts serious doubt into their hearts.
Evidence has come to surface recently in the form of training manuals for
Christian missionaries that detail how to do just this.
As an Ummah we
have failed many of our brothers and sisters in Islam. The fact that there are
many sections of the Muslim community with vast wealth and many sections in
abject poverty is an indication of this failure. It sets a scene whereby the
Christian missionary can come in and 'save' the Muslim from poverty and
destitution by providing food, money, clothing and so forth. Of course the price
for this is kufr, but when your family is starving, then that price
begins to look more and more like a bargain. Muslims need to support the
development of parallel aid organisations that can work instead of the kafir
groups bringing Muslim aid to our brothers and sisters in need. By doing so
we can force the kafir "out of the market" and ensure that our brothers
and sisters are given Muslim aid and Muslim da'wah insha'Allah.
Muslims have been
tricked by the emotive pleas for funds issued by World Vision and their ilk.
Unknown to most believers who contribute to these groups, they are contributing
money to turn their brothers and sisters into apostates. Muslims must be made
aware that the Red Cross, World Vision, Salvation Army, Christian Aid, and
others are simply evangelist groups. As such it is incumbent on us not to
support them, and to work in every way possible to halt the damage they're
On a governmental
level there is an incumbent duty for the Islamic State to protect the religion
of Islam from attack. The state's foreign policies should prohibit the
visitation of missionaries and severe measures should be taken against those
caught calling to taghoot. Of course many governments are working in
conjunction with the Christian missionaries and kafir powers. For
example, the Egyptian apostate regime of Mubarak was pressured by the Coptic
minority to remove Qur'an and Hadith from curiculm of the school-system. Another
state that has been working in cooperation with our enemies is Uzbekistan. In
fact the Uzbek government has shamelessly revealed itself as an open enemy of
Allah and the truth. It is truly hard to believe that Uzbekistan is the same
land that gave birth to both Imam Bukhari and Tirmidhi. Straight from the
horse's mouth (Christian Aid) we hear:
"In fact, when radical
Muslim missionaries began coming into Uzbekistan in 1991 to forment change and
revolution, the government arrested them as subversives. As of January, 71 were
still in jail, but there are no Christians in prison for their faith. Uzbek
authorities seem interested in maintaining religious tolerance and don't want
one group to get dominance of the other."
In terms of deterrent,
the biggest deterrent is to come down hard on these kufar. Just like drug
dealers pushing drugs in our neighborhoods, the missionaries are pushing kufr.
Weigh the effects of drugs against the effects of apostasy and one finds that
whilst the effects of drugs are limited to Dunia, the effects of apostasy
will carry a person all the way to the Hellfire.
