As a Muslim, you know that life is full of tough choices. Do you behead or not behead? Have adult relations with your buddy’s 9-year-old child…? Take a female sex slave… ?
For followers of the Religion of Peace, it all comes down to knowing what Muhammad did when faced with the same decisions (based on reliable Muslim sources, of course). In fact, the more you know about the founder of Islam the better, even if you aren’t Muslim.
Forget all those shifty-eyed apologists, trying to make Muhammad out to be some sort of “Jesus clone” based on a few obscure anecdotes. The prophet of Islam definitely wasn’t one to turn the other cheek or keep his worldly appetites in check.
You want the truth? Think you can handle it? Well, here you are then…
While reading through these points, keep in mind that all Muslims must work to live their lives as close to the image of Muhammad as possible. Indeed, being the Prophet, his actions are the epitome of Islamic values and culture, so if you see or hear of similar behaviour from other Muslims, remember that it is not an exception, but rather, the rule. If a Muslim tells you otherwise, they are simply practising Al-Takeyya, the meaning of which can be found after the jump;

The Arabic word, “Takeyya”, means “to prevent,” or guard against. The principle of Al Takeyya conveys the understanding that Muslims are permitted to lie as a preventive measure against anticipated harm to one’s self or fellow Muslims. This principle gives Muslims the liberty to lie under circumstances that they perceive as life threatening. They can even deny the faith, if they do not mean it in their hearts. Al-Takeyya is based on the following Quranic verse:
“Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution (prevention), that ye may Guard yourselves from them (prevent them from harming you.) But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.” Surah 3: 28
According to this verse a Muslim can pretend to befriend infidels (in violation of the teachings of Islam) and display adherence with their unbelief to prevent them from harming him.
Under the concept of Takeyya and short of killing another human being, if under the threat of force, it is legitimate for Muslims to act contrary to their faith. The following actions are acceptable:
* Drink wine, abandon prayers, and skip fasting during Ramadan.
* Renounce belief in Allah.
* Kneel in homage to a deity other than Allah.
* Utter insincere oaths.
