Let’s let this muslim humorist to begin first…

“Written by Hamzah Moin”

“I’m dead scared of spiders. They creep me out. I don’t want to start a mass spider genocide or anything …I just don’t like the way they walk. I mean they’re cool because spiders bailed out the Prophet (SAW) in the cave while people were hunting him down but still, I have what is called arachnophobia: fear of spiders. “

“Other people are scared of many other things. I know people who are scared of rollercoaster’s. I make fun of those people. I also know people are afraid of tight spaces so they don’t like the blanket on top of them because they fear the blanket would come alive and strangle them to death. I’m not friends with people like that. “

“However I would take all of the above over people who are kafirphobic – fear of kafirs. Kafirs are basically people who know about Islam but aren’t a fan of accepting it. It’s normal to leave it at that. However some folks get a bit wound up. They start screaming at anything that looks remotely kafir. “

“They scream at kafirs if they’re sitting on a grassy knoll. (Pic)”

“They scream at kafirs if they’re at a peace rally (Pic)”

“They even scream “Kafir” at Muslims for some reason. (Pic)”

“They’re not really that scary either. These “Kafirs” can give you flowers or chocolates and other goodies. I dunno about you but that sounds pretty sweet. Kafirs like to give out flowers and chocolates time-to-time so it’s good to chill with them during Christmas and Easter. “

“So WHY do people have kafirphobia? What makes people run and scream from them as if they’re some sort of monster or jinn? Nobody knows for sure, but I did some of my own research of the symptoms: “

“- Coughing, sneezing or sore throat while in a crowd of non-Muslims”

“- Dizziness when too close to a “non-Muslim”

“- Massive stomach irritation when eating at a restaurant made by kafirs.”

“- Extreme itchiness when using a product and/or invention that was made by a kafir.”

“- Watery eyes when reading a book written by a Non-Muslim”

“- (Sometimes) IQ is at a sub-par level “

“Kafirphobia unfortunately still exists … even when the nurse that helped bring us into this world was a kafir. Even when the people marching with us against the occupation of Palestine are kafirs. Even when we fall off our bikes, a nearby kafir would come and say “you okay?”. Not all kafirs are evil. Just the ones that say they want to kill us or something. Those ones are no good. But the rest are cool. “

“Screw kafirs eh? There are bigger problems out there than “kafirs”. I’m not saying to hug and kiss every non-Muslim you see out there. Some folks might not be a fan of that and lot of them don’t use a lota. That problem is that we are scared of the wrong things. We shouldn’t fear people. Just insects, roller coasters and blankets.”

Why is it muslims are scared of the kaafir? I don’t recall using my blog to insist violence or death upon muslims.

So why do muslims go to such extremes to hate people like me….? Because I doubt their claims and have a critical opinion of their jihadist actions?

Here is one example:


“Meaning of “Kaafir”

“The word Kaafir (or Kafir) is derived from the root verb “kafara”, which means to deny, conceal, reject or disbelieve. Therefore, a Kaafir is one who disbelieves, rejects or denies.”

“Its plural forms are: Kuffaar, Kaafireen or Kaafiroon. “

“In Sharee’ah, the Kaafir is understood to be: “One who disbelieves in Islam and does not follow the Messenger Muhammad (SAW).” Hence, the word Kaafir in Arabic literally means non-Muslim.”

“Types of Kaafirs”

“1. The Original Kaafir (Al-Kaafir al-Asli)”

“The original Kaafir is one who was raised as a non-Muslim by their parents, such as a Jew, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, atheist, polytheist, infidel, pagan and so forth. Allah (SWT) says:”

“Surely, disbelievers are those who said: ‘Allah is the third of the three (in a Trinity)…’” (Al-Maa’idah, 5:73)”

“This verse explicitly states that those who believe in the Trinity, namely Christians, are disbelievers, or Kaafirs. The root of the word Kaafir is used in this verse: that being kafara. Furthermore, Allah (SWT) also says:”

“Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur’aan and Prophet Muhammad) from among the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) and Mushrikeen will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.” (Al-Bayyinah, 98:6)”

“The above verse thus affirms the simple fact that the People of the Book, namely Jews and Christians, are disbelievers (Kuffaar), as well as the Mushrikeen, who worship Allah as well as other deities. “

“2. The Apostate from Islam (Al-Murtad ‘an al-Islaam)”

“The Murtad, or apostate, is one who has left Islam, either by their free will or by negating their Deen (religion) by committing an act of apostasy.”

“Apostasy, or riddah, can occur in many ways, such as:”

“• Denying obligations (fard), or denying verses of the Qur’an or authentic Hadeeth (sayings of the Prophet).”

“• Legalizing what Allah has explicitly forbidden, such as alcohol, interest, un-slaughtered meat, and so forth.”

“• Allying with the non-believers against Muslims, associating oneself or another with Allah, mocking the Deen (religion) or Ahkaam (divine rules), and so on.”

“A Kaafir is seen as one who conceals the truth, lies, and is dishonest and ungrateful to Allah, Exalted be He. Allah has promised humiliation, disgrace and severe punishment for those who disbelieve in Him and do not follow His Sharee’ah.”

“Hence, a Kaafir is in no way equal to a Muslim. Allah says that the believers are the best nation, and the Sahaabi (Companion) Ibn ‘Abbaas (RA) said:”

“Islam is always superior and can never be surpassed.” (Saheeh al-Bukhaari, Kitaab ul-Janaa’iz, Chapter 79)”

“Under Islam, the Kuffaar are treated differently. They are made to wear distinct clothing, pay jizyah (a special tax) to the State and cannot be in a position of authority over the Muslims. They are not permitted to carry weapons, live among Muslims or propagate their false and corrupt ideology. Allah (SWT) says:”

“Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (At-Tawbah, 9:29)”

The following paragraphs are a muslims way of explain away their term for non muslim ‘kaafir’.

And yet these muslims are afraid of us?

Here are my thoughts…

Yes it is funny how muslims from muslim countries are afraid of we non muslims. This is a result of Islamic media, the mujahedeen and Islamic governments all too willing according to their ideologies and theology to ‘defend’ islam by using ‘jihad’ and other terminology to attack non muslims and then get offended when non muslims answer their charges with countering their propaganda.

Hamzah Moin is right in his or her own way. Muslims & kaafir are both human beings. And as human beings we should stop being afraid of others who are different than us.

But don’t ask me to join islam and I want ask you to join the systems that I live under.
