President Trump rejects the principle tenant of Islam — Martyrdom
By Dr. Rich Swier
President Trump’s first major speech overseas
was in the heart of Islam, Saudi Arabia. The speech was eloquent and
presidential. While many will analyse the speech from various angles, I believe
the most important sentence in the speech made by the President was:
If you choose the path
of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will
be condemned. This one sentence denies the basic tenant of
Islam – martyrdom. President Trump went on to say:
When we see the scenes
of destruction in the wake of terror, we see no signs that those murdered were
Jewish or Christian, Shia or Sunni. When we look upon the streams of innocent
blood soaked into the ancient ground, we cannot see the faith or sect or tribe
of the victims – we see only that they were children of God whose deaths are an
insult to all that is holy.
“Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell
the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he
slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”
The only guaranteed way for a follower of
Mohammed to enter paradise is to fight and die in the way of Allah – martyrdom.
In Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 73, Abdullah bin Abi Aufa,
Allah’s Apostle, said, “Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords.”
President Trump undermined that basic tenants
of Islam before a majority of the key leaders of the Arab world. This is the equivalent
of going to Rome and denying that the death of Jesus on the cross gives
mankind life everlasting.
What President Trump said was blasphemy in
many Muslim majority countries.
President Trump’s words are more powerful
than using the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.” For you see terrorists are a
culture of death, as the President pointed out, and he single handily denied
them paradise and their purpose for following Allah.
