Allah’s Sword of Terror

Print Friendly

The first time I heard about Khalid bin al-Walid—the 7th century Muslim jihadi affectionately known in Islamic history as “The Sword of Allah”—was when I was in college researching for my MA thesis on the Battle of Yarmuk, when the Muslims, under Khalid’s generalship, defeated the Byzantines in 636, opening the way for the historic Islamic conquests.

Nearly a decade and a half later, Khalid, that jihadi par excellence, has come to personify a dichotomy for me—how the jihad is understood in the West and how it really is: officially, Western academia, media, and politicians portray it as defensive war to protect Muslim honor and territory; in reality, however, jihad is all too often little more than a byword to justify the most primitive and barbaric passions of its potential recruits and practitioners.

Based on the English language sources I perused in college, Khalid was a heroic, no-nonsense kind of jihadi—fierce but fair, stern but just.  He was the champion of the Apostasy Wars, when he slaughtered countless Arabs for trying to leave Islam after the death of Muhammad.

Modern day Muslims writing about Khalid—see for example Pakistani army lieutenant-general A.I Akram’s The Sword of Allah—had naught but praise for him, the scourge of infidels and apostates.

But as years went by, I came across more arcane and Arabic sources telling of the “darker side” of The Sword—a depraved and sadistic side.

For example, only recently I came across a video of a modern-day Egyptian Salafi explaining how Khalid raped Layla, the wife of Malik bin Nuwayra—but only after he severed her husband’s head, lit it on fire, and cooked his dinner on it.

Khalid was recalled and questioned by the caliph—not because he killed and dined on an apostate’s head and “married” his wife, but because some believed that Malik was still Muslim, not an apostate to be treated so, and that Khalid killed him on the accusation of apostasy only as a pretext to take possession of his wife, whose beauty was renowned.

In the words of Ibn Kathir’s authoritative historical tome, The Beginning and the End (al-bidaya we al-nihaya), “And he [Khalid] ordered his [Malik’s] head and he combined it with two stones and cooked a pot over them.  And Khalid ate from it that night to terrify the apostate Arab tribes and others.  And it was said that Malik’s hair created such a blaze that the meat was so thoroughly cooked.”

More eye-opening is the way the videotaped Egyptian cleric recounts this whole narrative with awe and admiration—boasting, for example, how that when Khalid entered the caliph’s tent for questioning he was “wearing armor all soaked and rusted from blood [of his enemies], with arrows sticking out of his turban.”

As for the near-cannibalistic meal that the Sword of Allah ate, the cleric complained that “People wonder how our lord Khalid could have eaten from such meat?  Oh yes—he ate from it! Our lord Khalid had a very strong character, a great appetite, and everything!  All to terrorize the desert Arabs [apostates].  The matter requires determination; these matters require strength—terrorism.”

Of course, all this accords with the Koran’s many commands to “strike terror” into the hearts of disbelievers, be they born infidels or apostates (see Koran 3:151, 8:12, 8:60).

Now, let us fast-forward to the modern era’s “Arab Spring” and U.S. support for “freedom-fighters” trying to “liberate” Syria (the official, Western narrative of the jihad), and let us reflect on its true nature—from a jihadi (ironically named “Khalid”) biting into the heart of a soldier (and thus striking terror into the hearts of Assad’s “apostate” regime) to Islamic clerics justifying rape and prostitution to gratify the many swords of Allah.

And at last, let us understand that the heartbeat of the jihad—sex, violence, and rapine—has scarcely changed in nearly fourteen centuries.

    Another great exposure of early Islam. How long before the political elites and mainstream media begin to reflect the truth? Since 9/11,millions of Westerners have been finding out the truth about Islam. Now we just await this to be reflected politically. To the question “who are the best muslims”? The question is answered in this hadith:”Muhammad’s contemporaries were the best Muslims; after three generations, the Muslims will be mainly treacherous and untrustworthy… “(Sahih Bukhari, 5.57.2, 3)

    And Muhammad’s contemporaries were of course…the “companions” or Salafis, ironically held in contempt by “moderate” muslims. A point made brilliantly here by Sam Shamoun, (25 minutes onwards):

      Raymond, I really appreciate all your posts and read them with great care. May I make a small suggestion which could greatly help those of us who do not have the encyclopaedic knowledge of some of the topics that you have. When you are quoting from Quran, Hadith, biography of the Prophet or other works, could you please include the reference of the quote either in the body of the work or as a footnote. this would be so helpful.
      Thanks

  • dia61

    Yes, and that’s the point.
    The dogma hasn’t changed in 1400 years and it’s not going to change. Jihad is not a defensive action. Jihad is an aggressive action. It is so difficult, it seems ,for so many people, to understand the difference. You are just going to have to keep repeating yourself, Raymond, until everybody’s on the same page. In the meantime, thank you.

    • reijo

      What you say is quite true. But mainstream western consumers (by and large) just don’t want to know the reality of political islam and jihad.
      It’s just too distasteful an politically incorrect.

      • dia61

        Yes, and then there’s the money issue. (Yes, I said it, ‘cuz I do not have an ounce of “pc” left in my body.)
        Many folks are on the receiving end of the big bucks of petrol dollars.
        It takes a mighty strong person to refuse cold, hard cash, especially in light our fabulous economy. Rudy Giuliani refused bin Talal’s blood money right after 9/11. Rudy was a strong person. What he did was exceptional,……absolutely not the norm. Ounce they buy ya, they own ya. It’s a part of their worldview.

  • Jules C.

    On FoxNews Sunday,it was reported the veteran MH370 muslim pilot attended the trial of a radical muslim who was found guilty and sentenced to FIve Years in Malasian jail. From courtroom, the muslim pilot went directly to airport to fly the MH370 that is now missing. Is this a coincidence? Whether or not, it (coincidence) isn’t being reported because it’s too politically incorrect regarding Islam. Note; Pilot is innocent until found quilty.

  • reijo

    Oh? And who is this radical muslim?

  • Tiktaalik2

    Thank you Raymond! The evidence (attacks) and the truth (writings like yours) will stack up, slowly accumulate and TEACH us what we need to know. It can’t happen too soon – I just hope and pray it happens before it’s too late. If only we could defuse political correctness, the light from your lamp might be visible sooner! Keep up the good fight.

    THE RELIGION OF PEACE — GRAVEYARD PEACE!

    “BY MY SWORD I WILL BUILD MY CULT OF DEATH”!

    REAL ISLAM & JIHAD

    The Truth about ISLAM: in its own words

    In the words of the prophet Muhammad.

    Bukhari:V4B52N220 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror. The treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.”

    Bukhari:V4B52N260 “The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.”

    Bukhari:V7B67N427 “The Prophet said, ‘If I take an oath and later find something else better than that, then I do what is better and expiate my oath.”

    EARLY HISTORY OF PEACEFUL ISLAM:

    Islamic leaders and politicians constantly tell us in English that “Islam is a peaceful religion”, but one can’t help wondering if they would say it quite so often if they were absolutely sure it was true.

    Some recorded massacres of Muslim history:

    On December 30, 1066, Joseph HaNagid, the Jewish vizier of Granada, Spain, was crucified by an Arab mob that proceeded to raze the Jewish quarter of the city and slaughtered its 5,000 inhabitants. The riot was apparently incited by Muslim preachers that had angrily objected to what they saw as inordinate Jewish political power. Similarly, in 1465, Arab mobs in Fez slaughtered thousands of Jews, leaving
    only 11 alive, after a Jewish deputy vizier treated a Muslim woman in “an offensive manner.” The killings touched off a wave of similar massacres throughout Morocco.
    Other mass murders of Jews in Arab lands occurred in Morocco in the 8th century, where whole communities were wiped out by Muslim ruler Idris I; North Africa in the 12th century, where the Almohads either forcibly converted or decimated several communities; Libya in 1785, where Ali Burzi Pasha murdered hundreds of Jews; Algiers, where Jews were massacred in 1805, 1815 and 1830 and Marrakesh, Morocco, where more than 300 hundred Jews were murdered between 1864 and 1880.

    Decrees ordering the destruction of synagogues were enacted in Egypt and Syria
    (1014, 1293-4, 1301-2), Iraq (854­859, 1344) and Yemen (1676). Despite the Qur’an’s purported prohibition, Jews were forced to convert to Islam or face death in Yemen (1165 and 1678), Morocco (1275, 1465 and 1790-92) and Baghdad (1333 and 1344). Some escaped, but the Jews of Arabia who remained were pretty much completely wiped out. Islamic revisionists claim they were killed because they were literally asking for it, is their apologetic rubbish propaganda.

    These Islamic revisionists (Islamaniacs) claim that the Jews demanded it as per
    their own law. I mean that’s like the Nazis claiming they were only accommodating the Jews demand to get warm by the ovens. Like Goebbels said, the bigger the lie, the easier it is for others to believe it.

    In the violent, nearly 1,400-year relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims, Jihad and Dhimmitude were firmly established by the 8th century. Perhaps the pre-eminent Islamic scholar in history, Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406), summarized five centuries of prior Muslim jurisprudence with regard to the uniquely Islamic institution of jihad:

    In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the [Muslim] mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force… The other religious groups did not have a universal mission, and the holy war was not a religious duty for them, save only for purposes of defense… Islam is under obligation to gain power over other nations.

    Between 1894-96, the Ottoman Turks massacred over 200,000 (Dhimmi) Christian
    Armenians, followed by the first formal genocide of the 20th century, in 1915, at which time they slaughtered an additional 600,000 to 800,000 Armenians.
    Contemporary accounts from European diplomats confirm that these brutal massacres were perpetrated in the context of a formal Jihad against the Armenians who had attempted to throw off the yoke of Dhimmitude by seeking equal rights and autonomy. Regarding the 1894-96 massacres, the Turkish-speaking interpreter of the British embassy reported:

    …[The perpetrators] are guided in their general action by the prescriptions of the Sheri [Sharia] Law. That law prescribes that if the “rayah” [dhimmi] Christian attempts, by having recourse to foreign powers, to overstep the limits of privileges allowed them by their Mussulman [Muslim] masters, and free themselves from their bondage, their lives and property are to be forfeited, and are at the mercy of the Mussulmans. To the Turkish mind the Armenians had tried to overstep those limits by appealing to foreign powers, especially England. They therefore considered it their religious duty and a righteous thing to destroy and seize the lives and properties of the Armenians…”

    The scholar Bat Yeor confirms this reasoning, noting that the Armenian quest for reforms invalidated their “legal status,” which involved a “contract” (i.e., with their Muslim Turkish rulers).

    This …breach…restored to the umma [the Muslim community] its initial right to kill the subjugated minority [the dhimmis], [and] seize their property…

    In the following chronology, note how closely Islam’s inception is associated with war. From 623 to 777, a span of 154 years, there are 83 military conflicts involving the Muslims…. Muslims tell us Islam is a religion of peace, but all historical facts seem to discredit that claim rather convincingly.

    http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/316106/Khalid-ibn-al-Walid On the eve of invading and conquering Christian Byzantium (637AD) General Khālid ibn al-Walīd, proclaimed that “We heard that Byzantine blood is the tastiest, and we have come to drink it.”

    On 12/8/09 Egyptian Cleric Hamdan Badr put that quote “in context”
    for us on Al-Shabab TV: “This didn’t constitute aggression because we were
    defending the borders of the Islamic state. We are commanded to enjoin people
    to worship Allah. That is the mission of every Muslim in this life.”

    You’ll notice that all “no-go” areas throughout Europe are Muslim ghettos. They define “…the borders of the Islamic state” which must be defended.

    There are “no-go” areas in America also. Go to You Tube and search “Dearborn Michigan Hate Fest – Dearborn Arab Festival” They stone Christians in Dearborn.

    Allha mercy/promise of Allah

    28: 13. So did We restore
    him to his mother, that she might be delighted, and that she might not grieve,
    and that she might know that the Promise of Allâh is true. But most of them
    know not.

    30: 6. (It is) a Promise
    of Allâh (i.e. Allâh will give victory to the Romans against the Persians), and
    Allâh fails not in His Promise, but most of men know not.

    35: 45. And if Allâh were
    to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave a moving (living)
    creature on the surface of the earth, but He gives them respite to an appointed
    term, and when their term comes, then verily, Allâh is Ever All­Seer of His
    slaves.

    42: 19. Allâh is very
    Gracious and Kind to His slaves. He gives provisions to whom He wills. And He
    is the All-Strong, the All-Mighty.

    57:9. It is He Who sends
    down manifest Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations,
    etc.) to His slave (Muhammad SAW) that He may bring you out from darkness into
    light. And verily, Allâh is to you full of kindness, Most Merciful.

    Islâmic Monotheism),

    and He has sent down out of these one part of mercy upon the jinn and human
    beings and the insects and it is because of this (one part) that they love one
    another, show kindness to one another and even the beast treats its young one
    with affection, and Allah has reserved ninetynine parts of mercy with which He
    would treat His servants on the Day of Resurrection.

    Allha mercy greater than his anger:

    27:73. “Verily, your
    Lord is full of Grace for mankind, yet most of them do not give thanks.”

    35: 45. And if Allâh were

    24:21……. And had it not
    been for the Grace of Allâh and His Mercy on you, not one of you would ever
    have been pure from sins. But Allâh purifies (guides to Islâm) whom He wills,
    and Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.

    37: 57. “Had it not
    been for the Grace of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought
    forth (to Hell).”

    49: 17. They regard as
    favour upon you (O Muhammad SAW) that they have embraced Islâm. Say:
    “Count not your Islâm as a favour upon me. Nay, but Allâh has conferred a
    favour upon you, that He has guided you to the Faith, if you indeed are true.

    Allha forgive sin

    4: 17. Allâh accepts only
    the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent
    soon afterwards; it is they to whom Allâh will forgive and Allâh is Ever All­Knower,
    All­Wise.

    4: 106. And seek the
    Forgiveness of Allâh, certainly, Allâh is Ever Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    4: 110. And whoever does
    evil or wrongs himself but afterwards seeks Allâh’s Forgiveness, he will find
    Allâh Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    11: 90. “And ask
    forgiveness of your Lord and turn unto Him in repentance. Verily, my Lord is
    Most Merciful, Most Loving.”

    16: 119. Then, verily! Your Lord for those who
    do evil (commit sins and are disobedient to Allâh) in ignorance and afterward
    repent and do righteous deeds, verily, your Lord thereafter, (to such) is
    Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    20:82. And verily, I am indeed Forgiving to
    him who repents, believes (in My Oneness, and associates none in worship with
    Me) and does righteous good deeds, and then remains constant in doing them,
    (till his death).

    27: 11. “Except him who has done wrong
    and afterwards has changed evil for good, then surely, I am Oft-Forgiving, Most
    Merciful.

    35: 45. And if Allâh were
    to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave a moving (living)
    creature on the surface of the earth, but He gives them respite to an appointed
    term, and when their term comes, then verily, Allâh is Ever All­Seer of His
    slaves.

    39: 35. So that Allâh may remit from them the
    evil of what they did and give them the reward, according to the best of what
    they used to do.

    39: 53. Say: “O ‘Ibâdî
    (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds
    and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allâh, verily Allâh forgives all sins.
    Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    40: 3. The Forgiver of
    sin, the Acceptor of repentance, the Severe in punishment, the Bestower (of
    favours), Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), to
    Him is the final return.

    42: 25. And He it is Who
    accepts repentance from His slaves, and forgives sins, and He knows what you do.

    46: 16. They are those
    from whom We shall accept the best of their deeds and overlook their evil
    deeds. (They shall be) among the dwellers of Paradise, a promise of truth,
    which they have been promised.

    61: 12. (If you do so) He
    will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow,
    and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that
    is indeed the great success.

    64: 9. (And remember) the
    Day when He will gather you (all) on the Day of Gathering, that will be the Day
    of mutual loss and gain (i.e. loss for the disbelievers as they will enter the
    Hell-fire and gain for the believers as they will enter Paradise). And
    whosoever believes in Allâh and performs righteous good deeds, He will remit
    from him his sins, and will admit him to Gardens under which rivers flow
    (Paradise) to dwell therein forever, that will be the great success.

    66: 8. O you who believe!
    Turn to Allâh with sincere repentance! It may be that your Lord will remit from
    you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise) ……..

    74:20………..And seek
    Forgiveness of Allâh. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.

    110: 3. So glorify the
    Praises of your Lord, and ask for His Forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who
    accepts the repentance and forgives.

    42: 37. And those who
    avoid the greater sins, and Al-Fawâhish (illegal sexual intercourse, etc.), and
    when they are angry, they forgive

    But then Catholics were a Zillion times cruel to Protestants as they burned them all in ‘Stakes’.

    The author seems to be blissfully ignorant about ‘Holocaust’ against 5 million ‘Jews’ and ‘Atom Bombs’ dropped on innocent women and children in Japan.

    Perhaps he thinks ‘Christians’ never committed these atrocities.

    Funny fellow. Don’t fool around any further.

    Dear Mr Raymond

    I recommend that you check your sources about what happened , and not just a video
    you can check this link ( I think you are familiar with the Egyptian languages )

    it is really important when you report an incident especially in something like that to investigate every piece of information ,
    The science of telling what happened in earlier ages is delicate and requires a lot of research.
    Khalid bin waleed married layla after the period which the islam rule states in case any woman became a widow

    khalid bin Waleed woudn’t have ever done such thing , prophet Muhamed and abou Bakr always made sure in their speeches to prohibit mutilation as it is really forbidden in Islam .
    I really hope that I have made a useful contribution
    looking forward to read your articles and collaborate together to findreveal the truth
