Muslims Mindset

by Abid Ali : Jan 7, 2014

Muslims never read the Quran from start to finish with the intent to understand its message and with an unprejudiced mind, if they do it is most probable it becomes clear to them that this book is not from God but the fabrication of an evil person, filled with absurdities and violence. They live in a blissful garden of ignorance where all their questions are answered. In the blissful garden they dont have to think indeed they are told not to think, all they have to do was to believe. Muslims are not unintelligent or irrational people, but somehow they manage to stifle rational thinking when it comes to the Quran and Islam. They make an abstract ideal image of Islam (and Muhammad) in their minds. That is why Muslims love Islam, though what they love is a folk Islam because what they love, their beautiful Islam, is their Islam and not the Islam of Muhammad. Very few Muslims have read the Quran to understand it. Yes, they chant it, often in a language that they dont understand, so few know what they read. Even fewer are those who have read the Sira and the hadith. The Islam they live by is an Islam recreated according to their own ideas. They create the best religion in their mind and when you tell them the truth about Islam it bears no resemblance the one they have envisioned and created for themselves and so they tell you that you have misunderstood Islam. Never mind reading and understanding the Quran, the majority of the Ummah does not know the very basics of Islam and Muhammad; they dont know how many wives Muhammad had, Muhammad had concubines and slept with them, he married a six year old girl and slept with her. Slavery or concubinism is allowed in Islam along with many more such immoralities, insensibilities and inhumanities all of which are unknown to majority of them. How can they see the truth if they read only lies and refuse to read anything that may cause them doubt their belief? Thus, they deceive themselves and tell themselves that if only they practiced the true Islam, all their problems, social, economic and judicial, problems will be resolved. They are convinced that the problem with Islam is actually the Muslims and not Islam itself. When I read the Quran I discovered a distinctly different picture o the one I had created in my mind. The new picture emerging from the pages of that book was a

violent, intolerant, irrational, arrogant religion, a far cry from the religion of peace, equality and tolerance. What would be the reaction of a man who is told that his wife is disloyal? How would a child react if he is told that his father is a murderer, a rapist, and a thief? A child who adores his father or a man who loves his wife will not be able to accept it even if all the proofs in the world are shown to him. They would call you a liar and would hate you for hurting them. They would curse you, consider you their enemy, and may even explode in anger and attack you. Or what would the condition of a man who is dreaming a pleasant dream in his sleep and you wake him up. He would definitely not like it. The greater the beauty of the dream, the greater is the pain of the reality. Even though faith is false, it is still sweet. It is very comforting to believe. It is a natural tendency of human he gobble all praise, no matter how inappropriate they may be, and vomit all criticisms. When you tell a person he looks great, or he is very honest, or he is very just or intelligent, he would never mind or question why you say so but accept all without any doubt or question but when you criticize the selfsame person, even for his betterment, first he would be unwilling to hear them, even somehow he hears, he would not take it but he would raise hundreds of questions; in addition, there could be frowning and glaring. Similarly, when a Muslim is nurtured with a belief that they are fortunate they are Muslims and someday will go to paradise for eternity they gobble this wishful thinking without any question or doubt. Because it is always pleasant to fantasize a beautiful dream but it remains only a dream and never becomes a reality. A true believer is a person so fanatically committed to a cause that no amount of reality can make him abandon it. Eric Hoffer Believing with evidence is knowledge and believing without evidence is superstition and also demonstrates gullibility. Islam requires exactly this -the gullibility on the part of its adherents who believe in its superstition without evidence or questioning. Muslims dont want to listen or read anything against their faith and assume their unquestioned belief will be rewarded manifold in the after-life without ever realising that unquestioned devotion and belief never take one to truth or reality. What Muslims assume as Eemaan (i.e. faith) is actually superstition wrapped in obstinacy and empowered by ignorance, violence and stupidity. It is an art of SelfDeception. He does not need opium who has the gift of self-delusion and does not the truth who has the wings of self-complacency.

Following or believing some ideology blindfold without questioning is a kind of intellectual slavery. How could an intelligent designer of this universe, mind and body reward stupidity, ignorance and hatred in a human being? Being Ignorant and having blind faith is never rewarded by God in heaven, if stupidity and ignorance is rewarded by God then donkeys are divine and monkeys are mystics. Men surrender sooner their rights than their customs and rituals; ridicule knowledge before their beliefs. John Stuart Mill Muslims are truly incapable of questioning the integrity of Islam perhaps because of faith and fear instilled in them. They assume every Islamic teaching, law and absurdity must be meaningful, transcendental, or rational for Allah. There must be some reason, they claim, behind the inhuman and irrational theories or stories which humans are neither apt to grasp nor are supposed to question because they are commanded by Allah and which they have taken on faith. And they never question whether what they take on blind faith (i.e. superstitiously) is fact or whether it is just the teachings of the elders, nor do they ponder why Allah would give such a revelation which is beyond the grasp of the majority of the people. In every Muslim it is infused into their mind by their elders since childhood that all non-Muslims, be it greatest of scientists, philosophers, freethinkers, theologians of other religions or common men, all are enemies of Muslims and conspire against their religion. Why anyone would be the enemy of a particular religion if it does not suppress the rights of others is beyond me. Actually, it is Islam itself which teaches Muslims to be the enemy of the entire world in order to spread it claws for imperialism. When they hear any critical question against their faith, they believe there are answers for all the criticisms and questions raised against Islam, but neither they would look for those answers nor would they willingly listen any criticism against their faith which they are very much content and consoled with. Muslims challenge they would be able to answer all the criticism but when you start presenting them they become irritated and would request you to stop discussing Islam at once. This has become their instinctive psychological tendency. On one side people like Zakir Naik boast and challenge about their religion and at the same time, Muslims launch Fatwas against Salman Rushdie and Taslima Nasreen for their views. If you silence the voice of critics, then what is the point of championing the veracity of your faith? When Taslima Nasreen last came to Hyderabad (India), she was hit & pushed by set of Muslims. These are exactly the same behaviour that prophet Muhammad adopted and approved. He even killed women critics, silenced opponent. In the name faith

(Eemaan) they practice every sort of dishonesty (Be-Emaani). Muslims are worst of the creatures and the most dishonest (Be-Emaan) people! Muslims try to defend their religion without knowledge of their own religion, they make claims and boasts about the integrity of the Quran and Muhammad believing that they would be able to answer and satisfy all criticisms and allegations against them; if confounded they depart promising that very soon they would return with all answers but that day never comes. For a single criticism, a hundred Muslims come with hundreds of answers. They do it in the hope that if they try to defend their religion any old way, they would be adorable to Allah for sustaining His religion. They dont understand that a religion authored by an Omnipotent God never needs the defence of that small and weak creature Man. Whenever they see any book or article critical to their faith, they immediately close it, horrified, without reading even a single page saying this is a misrepresentation of Islam but they themselves would never search, verify or confirm their own claim. Their entire life and faith hinges on oral reliance or pronouncement. In his book, Tell-tell Brain V.S. Ramachandran argued about various types of psychological blindness and peculiarities, where one of them I can mention is Metaphor Blindness in which a patient cannot understand metaphors or figurative statement. Rather, he would always tell you the literal meaning of the metaphor or proverb. Once such a patient was examined with a proverb, Rome was not built in a day. When Ramachandran asked him the meaning of the metaphor, he kept on telling the literal meaning of the proverb but could not tell figurative one, though the person was educated and wise enough to realize its metaphorical sense. Similarly, Muslims suffer from logical blindness when it comes to their faith. Even the most educated Muslims talk in such an irrational manner that it is sometime difficult to believe whether one is talking to a sane person or an insane one. Tell a Muslim about the absurdities of other religions he would understand immediately, but as soon as you replace that religion with Islam, he would immediately be in denial mode or agitated. When you condemn other religions in front of Muslims, they would agree delightedly and swell with conceit. They make fun of all religious myths and legend, like Ganesha, who is a deity with trunk or Ravan, a king with ten heads in Hinduism, but when you talk about absurdity of Miraj, they would utterly refuse to see the illogicality behind the story, a carrier who is half mule and half donkey with pair of wings The funniest creature! This blindness is not inborn but is the result of indoctrination by their elders in their childhood. Literally, Muslims says, kill those who say Islam is a violent religion. without ever realising what irony they utter. Even my brothers, who are not so learned and never did inquire, said to me that it is due to their weak Eemaan that

they hear something bad about Islam and dont kill anyone who says anything against their religion and prophet. The less they understand the mumbo-jumbo of the Quran, the higher their faith increases. They believe the Quran has such profound assertions that it is not possible for all to understand it, thus it must be divinely inspired. They fail to think over why God would send illogical and incoherent messages which are inconceivable to most people. Muslims gulp down all the lies, absurdities and inhumanities that are inherent in Islam uncritically. They cant see anything wrong with their faith as they are unable and unwilling to consider that anything could be wrong with their faith. Because Muhammad is the greatest and most noble man who ever lived, the entire world can be liars, but not Muhammad. Rather they consider that the whole world conspires to blaspheme him and is the enemy of Islam! Muhammad to them is the perfect example of human being even when they know he was a pedophile, a mass murderer and a rapist. Islam has thousands of fallacies ,the Quran has numerous errors of all sorts and Muhammad has countless crimes (as per Quran, Hadiths and Sira themselves) and still they want to silence those who raise these points not with a rational answer but by killing, persecuting, banning and banishing those enemies of Islam which is what Muslims have been doing since the inception of Islam. They want to kill those speaking the truth and, sadly, sometime they succeed. They ban and try to ban the websites, books, films, cartoons anything that exposes their cherished beliefs and they succeed, unfortunately. Unlike all other religious believer, Muslims protest march on roads in rage, agitate, burn embassies, blow up buildings, burn down libraries, kill people, ban books and websites, thinking that they are doing it for Islam and to spread the truth of Islam (ironicall, this latter is probably true, though not in the sense they intend) without realizing that truth does not need all this violence, terror and intimidation, truth just needs a rational answer. On top of this, Muslims, on a regular basis, wake up in the early hours of the morning and perform Vodu (Ablution), with the icy water of winter, lose precious time and energy in performing Salah five times a day and in reading Quran (the most absurd and useless book of all times), work outside home hungry and thirsty the entire day during the month of Ramadan and the billions of people who torture themselves in this way just for a lie, the lie of a sick man. This kind of hope is nothing but a sinister self-deception and a waste of life. A billion and a half people are still lost in this arid desert of ignorance, chasing a mirage in fear of childish stories of hell with scorching fire and in the hope of a heaven with lives of wine, milk, honey and high bosomed virgins. Both of these

were the figments of the non-spiritual, barbarous and crafty mind of a man who needed to dominate all those around him. Muslims believe that the Quranic assertions about Allah, Jinns, magic, spell, ghosts and souls proves Islam to be true and that Muhammad is the prophet of Allah, which is obviously not true. The ideas of God(s), Jinns, resurrection, magic, spelsl, souls were already prevalent before Muhammads grand-fathers were born. The scriptures of the Jews, Christians and other religion are clear evidence for these preexisting ideas. It was not difficult for Muhammad to plagiarize and concoct few theories about god, life and death, prayer, Jinns, soul et al to form a new religion in his own name. The question for those who believe Muhammad a prophet of Allah is: did Muhammad say something which was not known before him and is now proved by Modern science? I firmly believe there is nothing at all new or scientific in the Quran. The reason why I know the Muslims mindset so precisely is because I talked with hundreds of Muslims and discussed Islam with them and because I have broken the spell now and liberated myself from mental enslavement: once I myself was a Muslim.
