Takiyya: Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

The following excerpts are from The Mosque Exposed by Sam Solomon, a former imam and Islamic lawyer who converted to Christianity and is now residing in the UK, and E. Alamaqdisi, a prolific writer and debater, and a regular contributor to many Internet sites on the complex subject of Islam and its teachings. They also wrote Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Islam?

…there are injunctions in the Qur’an that enable the Islamic community to disguise, play down, and, when necessary, deny both the intensity and validity of these anti-Semitic and anti-Christian teachings of its religious system.

[Takiyya] permeates almost all the activities and dealings of Muslims within non-Muslim societies…

Takiyya means “caution, fear, or disguise.” It permits the suspension, as the need arises, of almost any or all religious requirements–including a total denial of faith–when fearing threat, injury or compulsion of any kind in a non-Muslim society, or even in a Muslim society.

The Qur’anic injuction for takiyya is:

Sura 16:106 Anyone who after accepting faith in Allah utters unbelief (kuffur) except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in faith, but such as open their breast to unbelief on them is wrath from Allah.

…See also:

Sura 3:28 …let not the believers take for friends unbelievers rather than believers. If any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah; except by way of precaution that ye may guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you Himself…

The word ‘guard’ in the phrase ‘guard yourselves from them’ is known as takiyya.

…As an addition to takiyya, Muhammad sanctioned lying by saying that Allah will not hold a Muslim accountable when he lies in these three situations:

  • when in war, espionage, concealment, or in weakness
  • with his wife, or a wife with her husband
  • when reconciling or maintaining peace

Muhammad went on to say, “War is deception.”

This deception can be practiced at a personal level as well as at community level through its leaders and institutions.

Takiyya is practiced by all Muslims, Sunni and Shi’ites alike…
