Suffering through the Koran, Sura 49 'The Inner Apartments'.

Obey Allah by obeying Mohammed - self justifying Koranic law.

by Ferdinand III

This Sura or chapter is yet another example of Mohammed justifying his leadership. In many chapters the reader is faced by the main narrator – the moon cult deity Allah or Ali-ilah – stating that Mohammed is the key man of the Muslim movement. In fact Mohammed is so important that Allah even allows himself to be manipulated by Mohammed to keep his 'Messenger' happy [see attached video for further explanation]. This is rather odd of course. A supposed 'God' doing everything to 'please' his Messenger. This should be a series of flashing, waving red flags for the curious and inquiring mind. Divine powers would not be so obsessed with the comforts and ease – not to mention excessive profit, slave trading, sexual transgressions and political power – of one human.

In any event, we have Allah once again repeating – ad nauseum – that Muslims must obey his chosen leader on earth. The only pure and divinely sanctioned speech is that of the illiterate politician of Mecca, “O you who believe ! Do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, nor speak aloud to him in talk, as you may speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds become vain and you do not perceive.” [49:2]

If Unbelievers from the safety of their homes admonish or ridicule Muslims for following a moon deity and Mohammed, they are to be ignored, for the Muslim has the might and knowledge of Allah on his side: “Those who shout out to you from the inner apartments – most of them lack understanding.” [49:4] If the righteous Muslim follows Mohammed, then Ali-ilah will bless them. But the pious Muslim must believe everything that Mohammed says;

“And know that among you is Allah's Messenger: ... but Allah has endeared the Faith to you, and has made it beautiful in your hearts, and He has made hateful to you Unbelief...” [49:7]

In order for Mohammed to succeed in his mission the Muslim community must never fracture and fight against itself. If it does than they will not be able to coalesce and dominate the Unbelievers:

“The Believers are but a single Brotherhood....and fear Allah, that you may receive Mercy.” [49:10] and “Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and his Messenger, and have never since doubted, but have striven with their belongings and their persons in the Cause of Allah, such are the sincere ones.” [49:15]

Striving in 49:15, with goods and belongings does not mean a mental or spiritual fight. It clearly presents a material and martial struggle to spread the moon cult and submit Unbelievers to Muslim rule and taxation.

Allah is also clear in commanding the faithful never to doubt and only to follow, Mohammed. Allah makes it mandatory to put your faith and your destiny into the impersonal moving forces of Islamic destiny and his chosen man on earth. This is the same illogic as the cults of Hitler and Lenin offered their followers. Follow us, because the dialectical path and inevitability of historical development demands nothing else. We will overcome because that is the destiny of all the large impersonal forces at work in the world. In this context, there is no free-will, and no need to think on your own. Shorn of doubt, the resolute and faithful Muslim will thus be blessed by Allah – as long as he follows the program.

But if any Muslim engages in splitting the communal spirit and power of the Islamic 'umma' they will be punished by Allah as a great sin. Only united can the Muslims hope to have the military strength to “...fight against the one that transgresses until it complies with the command of Allah...” [49:9] This dichotomy between 'us' and 'them' is a central feature of Koranic law. It is one of many aspects of Islamic intolerance which is missed by the 'Islam is Peace' cult.

This is no 'umma' of mankind – as imagined by Christians for example. There is only the 'umma' of Islam with the expectation that the world should be Islamic and that Allah will one day fulfil his promise to Mohammed to have the world under the aegis of his cult. As Allah plainly states in Sura 2.

[2:256 is always used by the Islam-is-Peace cult as proof of Muslim moderation with its call that, 'there is no compulsion in religion'.  This is followed immediately by verses stating that Unbelievers will die in Hellfire and need to be fought.  2:256 assumes that Unbelievers are already the slaves of Muslims.]

2:115. To Allah belong the East and West: wheresoever you turn, there is the Presence of Allah. For Allah is all-Pervading, All-knowing.

This is pretty clear. The translation cannot be blamed. All of the people in the East and West belong to Allah. That is called imperialist fatalism. It inspired and still inspires Islam today. Allah will conquer because he said so.

Sura 49 simply supports what Sura 2 already preaches. Mohammed is the main man. Allah is for some reason, acutely interested in his well-being and happiness. Muslims have a duty to fight the infidel; stay united; follow Mohammed's program; and never forget that to Allah belongs the East and West.

And just in case you don't get the point the chapter ends with, “Verily Allah knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth: and Allah sees well all that you do.” [49:18]

Allah is like Big Brother. He knows your thoughts before you even think them. And if they are impure, you will be troubled, and probably punished.
