The Least You Need To Know About Islam


If you had the opportunity to educate every kafir (non-Muslim) on earth about Islam but with one restriction — you could only tell them three facts — which three would you choose?

Non-Muslims don't need to know everything. Do they need to know Mohammad married a six year-old? Will that help them? Does it really matter to a non-Muslim who has no desire to become a follower? Probably not. But it is very important for a non-Muslim to know about the principle of taqiyya.

Another good choice would be to tell the kafirs what a Muslim means when he says, "Islam is a religion of peace."

There are many possible good choices, but the point is, for national policies about Islam to be changed, the politicians involved will need the support of a large number of their voters. And for that to happen, a lot more kafirs need to know some basic information about Islam.

But as you know, it's a big subject. There's a lot to learn, and most people have other interests and are not going to devote much time to it. So the question I think we should be asking ourselves is: "What is the least a kafir needs to know?"

What three ideas or facts would you choose if you could only choose three?

If you had your points down to three and you were clear what they were, it would be easier to work those points into conversations. And you could become very good at delivering those three points. You would be more effective in those conversations — more persuasive, more convincing, less likely to provoke a negative reaction.

Not only that, but if you give enough information to get someone interested, their own desire to learn will spur them on. You don't have to tell them everything. In fact, if you try, they will probably resist the information. You just need to say enough to arouse their interest, and say it well enough to be convincing.

This is important. Where the rubber meets the road in this work is our one-on-one conversations with people who don't yet understand the danger we're in. In those conversations, we can gain new allies, or we can push people further away from the cause, depending on how well we do it. Having three clear points we want to deliver — points we have decided ahead of time and have given some thought to — will improve how well we do it.

If I could only choose three points to make, I'd make these:

1. Islam has not been hijacked.
That Islam has been hijacked is what non-Muslims naturally assume because they assume all religions are the same. So they further assume that some crazies must have hijacked the religion because surely no religion would actually encourage the killing of innocents. We want to believe the religion has been hijacked. Once people realize it isn't true, we can start talking about real solutions.

2. Muslims are allowed to deceive non-Muslims if it helps Islam. The principle of taqiyya is surprising to non-Muslims. Knowing about the principle helps immunize non-Muslims from the deception. They can at least not take everything a Muslim leader says at face value. You can see (and share) some excellent examples of taqiyya in the movie, Obsession.

3. Striving to institute worldwide Shari'a law is a religious duty. Many people don't realize how politically-oriented Islam is at its core. Shari'a is the law of Allah. Any other form of government is a sin. It is their duty as a Muslim to keep striving until all governments have been converted to Shari'a law. I think when kafirs understand this, they will immediately grasp the basic principle that all governments must immediately stop all concessions to Islam.
Those are the three I would choose. Which three would you choose?

Law 2 is impossible, since law 3 states "Striving to institute worldwide Shari'a law is a religious duty.". This requires deceiving non-Muslims to benefit Islam in that Allah does not exist and non-Muslims would need to believe in him if law 3 was implemented.

Unfortunately, that is not the case, Anonymous. In order to impose Shari'a law on a country, you don't need a majority of people to agree. You only need the people with the most military clout to agree.

Many a country has had Shari'a law imposed by a small minority on the vast majority because the small minority were the most aggressive and were the most willing to be ruthless.

I would venture to guess that almost every, if not every, country that is now a Muslim country was created by a small minority of aggressive, ruthless Muslims who imposed Shari'a on everyone else. Once it is imposed, it is hard to reverse.

Excellent article. I like the way which you hook in the fundies at the beginning, and then deliver the surprising conclusions as a form of punch line.

Ben 12:59 AM  

In my view, the most important fatal facts of Islam are:
1. mercenary mission
2. martial methodology
3. absolutism
4. supremacism
5. triumphalism

If I could only use one source, it would be Reliance of the Traveller, Book O:
9.0,9.1, 9.8 & 9.9. O9.8 tells exactly what & why; O9.1 tells how frequently.

I recently posted What's Wrong With Islam/Musalims" which outlines the most critical information with links to source. In chm format, at Crusader's Armory, it runs to 29KB. It would have been shorter if I had left out the objections/refutations sections.

What You Need to Know about Islam is an outline of the basic facts, each point being a link to critical text. That post includes a link to a pdf file which includes the linked text.

For anyone with plenty of SISU, and thick skin; willing to risk alienating friends: Crusader's Armory has several fliers you can print & distribute or attach to emails. Titles include: Is Islam Peaceful?, Can Islam Be Reformed? and The Roots of Islamic Terrorism.

There are also a few Power Point presentations which include links to the Qur'an & Hadith.

Citizen Warrior 1:13 AM  

For those who don't know about The Reliance of the Traveller, it is a classic manual of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). It represents the fiqh rulings according to the Shafi'I school. "Fiqh" means understanding; it refers to the study of the law in Islam and is usually defined in jurisprudence textbooks as the knowledge of the rights and duties whereby human beings are enabled to observe right conduct in this life and to prepare themselves for the world to come. Whereas shariʿa refers to the divine law itself, fiqh denotes the human interpretation of the divine commands.

Definition of "triumphalism:"

The attitude or belief that a particular doctrine, especially a religion or political theory, is superior to all others.

Citizen Warrior 1:22 AM  

Ben, I like your choices.

The link, "What You Need to Know about Islam" doesn't work. Can you come back here and provide another link? I have searched in vain for an email address for you.

Ben 10:06 AM  

Islamic triumphalism is about predestined victory, promised, expected, and anticipated.
eg.:2:89, 2:137, 3:123, 3:125, 13:41 & 14:15.

Go to and search for The Good News, or see ROPMA.

I must commend you on this brilliant website. I have found it extremely helpful and am recommending it to everyone I know, as well as in various online forums that I visit to discuss religion etc.

Thank you for all your hard work in creating this site, it is much appreciated.


Anonymous 3:04 PM  

Between the surles written in Mecca and the surles written in Medina... Muhammed tells his followers to ignore the more peaceful texts and instead to adopt the warrior texts he wrote when they were raiding caravans.

Can you tell me the verse and tell me exactly what that verse says?

Thank you. Great website and wonderful source for information.

Citizen Warrior 12:11 AM  

Thank you.

Yes, there are two verses the principle of "abrogation" is based on:

2:106 "Whatever of Our revelations We repeal or cause to be forgotten, We will replace them with something superior or comparable. Do you not know that Allah has power over all things? Do you not know that Allah reigns sovereign over the heavens and earth and besides Him you have no protector or helper? Would you question your messenger as Moses was questioned in his time? Those who exchange their faith for disbelief have gone astray from the right path."

16:101 "When We exchange one verse for another, and Allah knows best what He reveals, they say, 'You are making this up.' Most of them do not understand."

Read much more about abrogation here.

Anonymous 9:53 AM  

Recently there has been news of Islam decreasing the number of clerics that can issue fatwas. Why do you think they are doing this? Also, does this affect abrogation?

Citizen Warrior 4:42 PM  

I don't know why they would reduce the number of clerics that can issue fatwas.

But I do know this does not affect abrogration.

Abrogation has been a long decided issue, and is based on the Quran and the order the revelations were revealed, neither of which will ever change. Read more about abrogation here, including the verses from the Quran they base it on:

Definition of Abrogation

Anonymous 10:36 AM  

The three most important things to know about Islam are:
1. Taqiyya
2. That by "peaceful religion" they mean that they seek to subdue all non Muslims so that the only religion left will be Islam.
3. That Jehovah and Allah are not the same. That the law of Jehovah is the golden rule and that it frees people from such laws as Sharia. The golden rule is about right and wrong being based on keeping the spirit of law which is easy to do as Jesus said. Sharia is about keeping the letter of law which is virtually impossible which was the problem the Jews had and the reason Jesus called them the sons of the Devil.

Citizen Warrior 5:21 PM  

Someone emailed us this:

I would tell anyone who is ignorant of Islam this:

1. Islam is founded on a Pedophile, rapist, and mass murderer. (If they don't believe me I would show them in the Koran).

2. Islam enslaves all of its followers by A. not allowing them to leave, unless they want to be murdered, B. it enslaves women by making them the absolute property of every Muslim man and C. Muslims are not allowed to read other texts, like the Bible.

3. Islam is on a Conquest to Enslave the Entire World through Sharia Law. I would elaborate that it is the duty of every Muslim to implement Sharia Law in any way they individually can.

As a side note I would point out that Islam is the only "Religion" that has to use Violence to increase its numbers. This singles it out from all the other major world religions.

Anonymous 1:07 PM  

There are lots of converts by non-violent means. I'Verizon heard of few such who are women. Maybe it is the promise of 40 virgins. Or maybe it's just frustrated men who are attracted to the rape and enslavement of women.

Citizen Warrior 1:54 PM  

Yes, in the West especially, there are non-violent converts. Because they don't teach the ugly stuff until you're already in. When I first starting studying about Islam, I read lots of pro-Islam books to see what they said (at that point I was skeptical that Islam could be as bad as the counterjihadists were saying). What they said about Islam in those books (like Islam for Dummies) was all sweetness and light.

Anonymous 5:48 PM  

The three things that I would choose are:

1. Taqiyya - lying to further the cause of Islam

2. abrogation - the verses (in the Qur'an) written later in time negate the verses written

3. Hijra - migration to spread Islam (what is basically happening in Europe)

Article Spotlight

One of the most unusual articles on is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
