... The necessary response must be resistance through nothing less than our most authentic selves. We must strive to be Blacker, Browner, more Muslim, more Sikh, more Hindu than the worst nightmares of racists and Islamophobes.More striving in submission to strange gods and false prophets - as the great falling away continues, and blasphemies against Jesus Christ, for whom and through whom all things are created - at The Islamic Monthly
# What could Hamza Syed do when striving to be a 'worse nightmare' than this:
[8.12] When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
# Or this:
[9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
[9.30] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
# Or more blasphemous and antichrist than this:
[4.157] And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure.
# And this:
[4.171] O followers of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the truth; the Messiah, Isa son of Marium is only an apostle of Allah and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him; believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector.
# Forget striving to be more colorful, or more deeply following any strange god, gods, false prophets and their associated doctrines of demons - they lead on a broad path to destruction. Seek the narrow path, which leads to salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ - there are no alternate routes.
