Kill all Kafirs, 72 Virgins in Paradise

While an agnostic Jewish author doesn’t fit in the same category as Abu Huraira, this video shared by one of the MM writers is definitely worth watching.  Lesley Hazelton has an appreciation and understanding of the Qur’an that, I am sad to say, many Muslims don’t even have.  She talks about her attempt  to ‘really, properly read the Qur’an in research for an upcoming book, and the hubris of allotting herself three weeks for a task that ended up taking her three months. May Allah guide her.

Definitely worth watching, and addresses two major myths about the Qur’an- permission to kill all kafirs and 72 virgins in Paradise.

5 Thoughts on “Kill all Kafirs, 72 Virgins in Paradise

  1. thank you for sharing this!

    also, paradise as ‘gardens watered by running streams’ – hey! that’s me! 😉

  2. I know, right? I remember, as a child, being so put off by the idea of sitting on a cloud playing a harp (I was a little confused being raised in the middle of so many religious influences) and I was relieved when I learned that it was much, much better- big house, good people, good food, perfect love, perfect satisfaction- everything we’re all running around like crazy trying to achieve now. Now *that* is the life. 🙂

  3. Jazakillah khair for sharing this.

    The amount of effort she put into reading the Qur’an is really admirable. And she seems to have really tried to understand it too.

  4. I really hope Allah guides her 🙂

  5. Salam,
