The Quran teaches that all Life is sacred


(Qur’an 5:32)

The Muslim myth

In an effort to portray their religion as non-violent, Muslim apologists vigorously employ verse 5:32, which would appear to promote a universal principal that all life is sacred to Allah – especially the way it is typically quoted by apologists:

“…if any one slew a person… it would be as if he slew a whole people; and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of a whole people…”

(As quoted by the Fiqh Council of North America in their ultimately meaningless “Fatwa against Terrorism”)

The truth

This fragment of verse 5:32 is what the apologists want non-Muslims to believe is in the Qur’an, as opposed to the dozens of other open-ended passages that command warfare, beheadings and torture.

But even what they usually quote from 5:32 isn’t quite how it appears.  Remember all those ellipses?  There’s something being left out.

Here’s the full text of the verse:

“On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.”

First, notice the gaping loophole.  Killing is allowed in cases of murder or “for spreading mischief in the land.”  Murder is pretty straightforward, but “spreading mischief?”  If anything begged for a careful and precise explanation, this phrase certainly would.  But generations of Muslims are left to apply their own interpretation of what “mischief” means – with varying standards.  Verse 7:103 of the Qur’an even indicates that merely rejecting Mohammed and the Qur’an would qualify.

Secondly, note the broader context of this verse.  It turns out that this isn’t a divine command to Muslims after all.  It’s a recounting of a rule that was given to the Jews.  It isn’t an admonition against killing.  It’s an indictment against the Jews for violating the law given to them.  “Any one” doesn’t mean “anyone,” but rather “any one” of the Jews.

Any application to Muslims would have to apply only to Muslims – as in Muslim on Muslim murder within the brotherhood of believers.  In fact, the context of the verse is the murder of Abel by Cain.  Historically, this verse has never been interpreted by Islamic scholars to mean that Allah places equal value on the lives of non-Muslims.  The Qur’an says that restitution for murder is bound by the law of equality (2:178) and that non-believers are not equal to Muslims (39:09).  Mohammed affirmed that while a Muslim may be punished with death for killing a fellow Muslim, they should never be slain for killing a non-believer.

Rather than encouraging tolerance, Sura 5 as a whole is actually an incitement of hatred with a hint of violence.  Jews and Christians are explicitly cursed as ‘wicked’ people with ‘diseased hearts’ and as hateful ‘blasphemers’ respectively.  Muhammad goes on to coyly remind his people that Allah loves those who “fight” in his service – and it’s fairly obvious who the enemy is.

Muslim apologists conveniently leave out the fact that the gruesome verse which follows 5:32 actually mandates killing in the case of the aforementioned “mischief”.  It even suggests crucifixion and “the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides.”

Together, verses 5:32-33 actually provide the basis for blasphemy laws, in which people are executed for insulting or questioning Islam.  Ironically then, the very part of the Qur’an that apologists use to portray Islam as a non-violent religion has long been used as justification for making verbal offense into a capital crime.

So, the Qur’an’s best example of moral instruction is a passage which actually mandates the torture and execution of those deemed a threat to Islamic hegemony…

With this being the best that Islam has to offer, it’s not hard to guess why the religion contributes over a thousand deadly terrorist attacks to the world each and every year.

[Editor’s Note: This does not necessarily entail the beliefs, thoughts, or theories of the local Act chapters or the National Act office…they are my beliefs, thoughts and/or theories. One thing to notice in the sura 5:32 verse, the “law” pertained to Jews and not Muslims…If a Jew kills a Muslim other than for self defense or for the corruption of the Muslim, than the Jew should die…that verse is used to whitewash Islam. Now, as everyone knows from what has been said and documented through live news, or written news articles, or through listening to Imams or the Muslim Brotherhood or any of it’s front groups, Jews are to die anyway, regardless of whether or not they killed a Muslim…now the sura verse doesn’t pertain to them. Their belief system looks at verses like Sura 9:29, 4:91 and others.]
