This is information for those who want to think that Boko Haram is fighting an Islamic cause.
Indeed, Boko Haram are simply very ignorant Muslims, even if we can call them Muslims.
We all know that it is haram and highly repudiated for Muslims to kill any innocent person, of any faith. But this is not what we will discuss here. We will simply put forth a few popular statements that Boko Haram use to brainwash the unfortunate, ignorant Muslims around them for support, that are very ignorant and un Islamic.
It is very sad that the media publishes the nonsense that they say. Islam contributed immensely to the advancement of the human race and technology. We had the Islamic golden ages when Islam was advanced in medicine, engineering, economics, law and the like in Africa(Timbuktu empire), Geda in Kenya, etc, as well as in the Middle East, great cities of knowledge like Baghdad.
These have been referred to as the Golden ages, when the Muslim world was in a technological revolution and the western world was in its dark ages of ignorance. Indeed many argue that Europe came and stole these advances from the Muslim world to spur their technological revolution.
Boko Haram are the most different and ignorant Muslims in the entire world. No other place can such ignorance be found, except with the Europeans in the dark ages when the plague overtook them due to their backwardness. Islam does not support such backwardness. Indeed Islam and the Holy Books of the Deen have been found to have a great deal of advanced scientific thinking.
So on the issue of the world being flat that Boko Haram are still so deluded to follow the European ignorant thinking about, indeed it is Boko Haram that is westernized in the sense of the western ignorance of the dark ages. Here is the Islamic position(Allahu Alim):
This is from the Rashad Khalifa translation of the Quranic verse, with the accurate meaning and translation for the Word “dahaha”:
Quran 79:30 He made the earth egg-shaped.
So, we see that Islamic thinking was actually correct, while the old day ignorant European who Boko Haram follow had it wrong. From this advanced knowledge, Islam is credited for having some of the greatest navigators, and for developing the compass. The Muslims developed great astronomical tools, including the Astrolabe, an astronomical computer, and these spurred todays technological advances in these fields.
The history of the astrolabe begins more than two thousand years ago. The principles of the astrolabe projection were known before 150 B.C., and true astrolabes were made before A.D. 400. The astrolabe was highly developed in the Islamic world by 800 and was introduced to Europe from Islamic Spain (al-Andalus) in the early 12th century. It was the most popular astronomical instrument until about 1650, when it was replaced by more specialized and accurate instruments. Astrolabes are still appreciated for their unique capabilities and their value for astronomy education. Link: http://www.astrolabes.org/
The Astrolabe works on the principle and knowledge of a round earth and round planets.
Boko Haram are a very annoying problem, and we wonder what they are and what dungeon they come from. It is hard to believe that they are Muslim, except that Abubakar Shekau guy that tries to speak as a Muslim, but from all indications and on the bases of their ignorance, they are not Muslim.
Again this is another most embarrassing and un Islamic statement. This is the misconception of ‘Allah Creates’, and people think that to ‘originate a creation’, is not the same as to create. They are so ignorant that they think in terms of our limited mind, that Allah just makes rain, and they do not understand that He makes rain indeed in a miracle of evaporation-condensation.
Noble Quran says:
“ We (Allah) send down water from the sky in measure an lodged it in the ground and we certainly are able to withdraw it “ (Sura 23, 18-19 Verses) the above verses are explaining the complete water cycle i.e., water fall, penetration of water in the soil and evaporation phenomenon.
“ Allah is the one who sends forth the winds which rised up the clouds he spreads them in the sky as he wills and breaks them into the fragments then thou seest raindrops issuing from within them (Sura 30, Verse 48) “
The above verses clarify the processes of evaporation, condensation, fragmentation and rain-cycle.
“ We send for the winds that fecundate. We cause the water to descend from the sky we provide you with the water you could not be the guardian of its reserves (Sura 15, 22 Verse)
We can go on and on on these grave errors and insults to Islam, to humanity and insults to the brain by Boko Haram. But what is the use? The ignorant people they brainwash need to read and learn more about Islam, they need to read print outs of this information, unfortunately, many can not even read Quran.
Boko Haram pays them as little as N7000 to kill for them. It is poverty of their minds and poverty of their religion that is affecting them. May Allah(S) help them and lead them to knowledge and the true religion of peace before it is too late for them and they enter hell eternally. Ameen.
Peace to everyone
