Torment to Non-believers:
burn their skin black; repeat SURA 4.56: (As for) those who
disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire;
so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned, We will
change them for other skins, that they may taste the chastisement;
surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.
you to disbelieve and then he punishes you for that
2.7 Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon
their hearing and there is a covering over their eyes,
and there is a great punishment for them.
Slavery is OK and it's
good to have a spare...
does not behoove a believer to kill a believer
except by mistake, and whoever kills a believer by
mistake, he should free a believing slave, and blood-money should be paid to
his people unless they remit it as alms...
with parents / siblings if not believers
9.23: O you who believe! do not take your fathers and
your brothers for guardians if they love unbelief more
than belief; and whoever of you takes them for a
guardian, these it is that are the unjust.
Friends with Jews, Christians...
5.51: O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for
friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes
them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does
not guide the unjust people.
(But) he must not break her
teeth or poke her in the eye...
It is forbidden to beat her in
the face or make her ugly...
He can beat her with a short rod...
Beatings are permitted only in this case (when she refuses
sleep with him), which the husband cannot do without."
Said he (Pharaoh): You
believe in him before I give you permission; most surely he is the
chief of you who taught you the magic, so you shall know: certainly
I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and
certainly I will crucify you all.
Fight non-believers 9.123: O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to
you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah
is with those who guard (against evil).
"Protestant pastors in
the U.S. have
a negative view of Islam and more
than half agree with Franklin Graham's
Islam is an "evil" religion..."
Kill non-believers 4.89 : They desire that you should disbelieve as they have
disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not
them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if
they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find
take not from among them a friend or a helper.
Killing Idolaters 9.5: So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters
wherever you find them, and take them captives and
besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they
repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free
to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
This scene is from a movie.
What happens in real stonings? The victims' hands are tied behind their backs and their bodies are put
in a cloth sack. Then, this human "package" is buried in a hole, with
only the victims' heads showing above the ground. If it's a woman, she is
buried up to her shoulders. This is to give her a supposed chance to escape.
After the hapless person has been secured in the hole, people start
chanting "Allah hu Akbar" "God is great", and throw palm
sized stones at the head of the victim from a distance (a circle
had been drawn).
"But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity
be not found for the damsel:
Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her
father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her
with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly
in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so
shalt thou put evil away from among you."
In Iran, stoning a person to death is
not against the law -- using the wrong stone is.
3.85: And whoever desires a religion other than
Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he
shall be one of the losers.
3.118: O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among
others than your own people; they do not fall short of inflicting loss
upon you; they love what distresses you; vehement hatred has already
appeared from out of their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is
greater still; indeed, We have made the communications clear to you,
if you will understand.
with non believers
3.28: Let not the believers take the unbelievers for
friends rather than believers; and whoever does this,
he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah,
but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding
carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution
from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming.
"Ye shall not
make any cuttings
in your flesh for the dead,
nor print any marks upon you:
I am the LORD.."
Believers make superior friends
4.144: O you who believe! do not
take the unbelievers for friends rather than the believers; do you
desire that you should give to Allah a manifest proof against
8.30: And when those who disbelieved devised plans against you that
they might confine you or slay you or drive you away; and they devised
plans and Allah too had arranged a plan; and Allah is the best of
Certainly you will find the most violent of people in
enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews and those
who are polytheists, and you will certainly find the
nearest in friendship to those who believe (to be)
those who say: We are Christians; this is because there
are priests and monks among them and because they do
not behave proudly.
Idolaters are unclean just
because they are idolater 9.28: O you who believe! the idolaters are nothing but unclean, so they
shall not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year; and if
you fear poverty then Allah will enrich you out of His grace if He
please; surely Allah is Knowing Wise.
Forcing non-believers to pay tax 9.29: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day,
nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited,
nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the
Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and
they are in a state of subjection.
The Torment of Hell for infidels
(Jews, atheists, and non-believers)
43: Surely the tree of the Zaqqum,
eat Zaqqumto intensify the torment of the
Khati'un (Koran Sura 69:36-37); it
tastes like Like molten brass...] 44: Is the food of the sinful 45: Like dregs of oil; it shall boil in (their) bellies,
46: Like the boiling of hot water.
47: Seize him, then drag him down into the middle of the hell;
48: Then pour above his head of the torment of the boiling water:
49: Taste; you forsooth are the mighty, the honorable:
50: Surely this is what you disputed about.
51: Surely those who guard (against evil) are in a secure place,
52: In gardens and springs;
53: They shall wear of fine and thick silk, (sitting) face to face;
54: Thus (shall it be), and We will wed them with Houris pure,
beautiful ones. 55: They shall call therein for every fruit in security;
56: They shall not taste therein death except the first death,
will save them from the punishment of the hell, 57: A grace from your Lord; this is the great achievement.
58: So have We made it easy in your tongue that they may be mindful.
5.69 : All except Muslims / Jews/Christians / Sabeans will go to hell Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last
day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and
there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.
the neck and cut fingertips of
unbelievers 8.12: When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore
make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts
of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off
every fingertip of them.
Smite the neck of unbelievers 47.4: So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the
necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them)
prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them
ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and
if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from
them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and
(as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means
allow their deeds to perish.
Severe Punishment for atheists 10.4: To Him is your return,
of all (of you); the promise of Allah (made) in truth; surely He begins
the creation in the first instance,
then He reproduces it, that He may with justice recompense those who
believe and do good; and (as for) those who disbelieve, they shall
have a drink of hot water and painful punishment because they
And (as for) those who disbelieve and reject our communications, these

Severe Punishment for non-believers 22.19: These are two adversaries who dispute about their Lord; then (as
to) those who disbelieve, for them are cut out garments of
fire, boiling water shall be poured over their heads.
22.20: With it shall be melted what is in their bellies and (their)
skins as well.
22.22: Whenever they will desire to go forth from it, from grief, they
shall be turned back into it, and taste the chastisement of
Severe Punishment for non-believers 72.23 : (It is) only a delivering (of communications) from Allah and
His messages; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Apostle surely
he shall have the fire of hell to abide therein for a long time.
Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book and the

have prepared for them a painful chastisement.
Punishing for rejecting faith 3.91 : Surely, those who disbelieve and die while they are unbelievers,
the earth full of gold shall not be accepted from one of them,
though he should offer to ransom himself with it, these it is who shall
have a painful chastisement, and they shall have no helpers.
Unbelievers go to hell 4.140 : And indeed He has revealed to you in the Book that when you
hear Allah's communications disbelieved in and mocked at do
not sit with them until they enter into some other discourse; surely
then you would be like them; surely Allah will gather together the
hypocrites and the unbelievers all in hell.
7.36 : And
(as for) those who reject Our communications and turn away from them
haughtily -- these are the inmates of the fire they
shall abide in it.
Partial Believers go to hell too 4.150 : Surely those who disbelieve in Allah and His apostles and
(those who) desire to make a distinction between Allah and His
apostles and say: We believe in some and disbelieve in others, and
desire to take a course between (this and) that.
4.151 : These it is that are truly unbelievers, and We have prepared
for the unbelievers a disgraceful chastisement.
4.152 : And those who believe in Allah and His apostles and do not make
a distinction between any of them -- Allah will grant them
their rewards; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Sadistic punishments 56.41 : And those of the left hand, how wretched are those of the left
16.106 : He who disbelieves in Allah after his having believed, not he
who is compelled while his heart is at rest on account of faith,
but he who opens (his) breast to disbelief -- on these is the wrath of
Allah, and they shall have a grievous chastisement.
3.86 : How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their
believing and (after) they had borne witness that the Apostle was
true and clear arguments had come to them; and Allah does not guide the

Allah and the angels and of men, all together.
3.88 : Abiding in it; their chastisement shall not be lightened nor
shall they be respited.
3.89 : Except those who repent after that and amend, then surely Allah
is Forgiving, Merciful.
3.90 : Surely, those who disbelieve after their believing,
increase in unbelief, their repentance shall not be accepted, and
these are they that go astray.
Allah will commit genocide
17.16-17: When we decide to destroy a population, we send a
definite order to them who have the good things in life and yet
transgress; so that Allah's word is proved true against them: then
we destroy them utterly. How many generations have we destroyed
after Noah? And enough is thy Lord to note and see the Sins of his
Allah boasts about His as genocide
21.11: How many were the populations we utterly destroyed
because of their inequities, setting up in their place other

Threat of punishment for not going to war
9.38 : O you who believe! What (excuse) have you that when it is
said to you: Go forth in Allah's way, you should incline heavily to
earth; are you contented with this world's life instead of the
hereafter? But the provision of this world's life compared with the
hereafter is but little.
9.39 : If you do not go forth, He
will chastise you with a painful chastisement and bring in your
place a people other than you, and you will do Him no harm; and
Allah has power over all things.

you turned back before, He will punish you with a painful

that they may add to their sins; and they shall have a disgraceful
Intentionally preventing unbelievers from
knowing the truth
6.25 : And of them is he who hearkens to you, and
We have cast veils over their hearts lest they
understand it and a heaviness into their ears; and
even if they see every sign they will not believe in
it; so much so that when they come to you they only
dispute with you; those who disbelieve say: This is
naught but the stories of the ancients.
And We will turn their hearts and their sights, even as they did not
believe in it the first time, and We will leave them in their
inordinacy, blindly wandering on.
Intentionally preventing unbelievers from
17.45 : And when you recite the Quran, We place
between you and those who do not believe in the
hereafter a hidden barrier;
17.46 : And We
have placed coverings on their hearts and a
heaviness in their ears lest they understand it, and
when you mention your Lord alone in the Quran they turn their backs in aversion.
It is God who causes people to err and He
burns them for that 17.97 : And whomsoever Allah guides, he is the follower of the right
way, and whomsoever He causes to err, you shall not find for
him guardians besides Him; and We will gather them together on the day
of resurrection on their faces, blind and dumb and deaf; their
abode is hell; whenever it becomes allayed We will add to their burning.
God could guide, if he chose to, but did not 6.35 : And if their turning away is hard on you, then if you can seek
an opening (to go down) into the earth or a ladder (to ascend up)
to heaven so that you should bring them a sign and if Allah had pleased
He would certainly have gathered them all on guidance, therefore be not
of the ignorant.
Intentionally misguides 14.4 : And We did not send any apostle but with the language of his
people, so that he might explain to them clearly; then Allah
makes whom He pleases err and He guides whom He pleases and He is the
Mighty, the Wise.
Willfully misguiding some 16.93 : And if Allah please He would certainly make you a single
nation, but He causes to err whom He pleases and guides whom He
pleases; and most certainly you will be questioned as to what you did.
God causes human to err 4.143 : Wavering between that (and this), (belonging) neither to these
nor to those; and whomsoever Allah causes to err, you shall
not find a way for him.
Whomsoever Allah guides, he is the one who follows the right way; and
whomsoever He causes to err, these are the losers.
God deceiving humans 4.142 : Surely the hypocrites strive to deceive Allah, and He shall
requite their deceit to them, and when they stand up to prayer they
stand up sluggishly; they do it only to be seen of men and do not
remember Allah save a little.
Raised in the Muslim faith, Warraq came to reject religion and
now spends his time lecturing and writing. He recently authored a piece "Islam,
The Middle East and Fascism" which critiques the Islamic holy book, the Qur'an.
What Virgins? By Ibn Warraq "Paradise is an abode where there are 80,000 servants and
seventy-two wives, over which stands a dome decorated
with pearls, aquamarine, and ruby as wide as the distance
from Al-Jabiyyah [a Damascus suburb] to Sana'a [Yemen]."'
"The Encyclopedia of Islam says, even orthodox Muslim
theologians such as al Ghazali (died 1111 - 935
C.E) and AlAsh'ari have "admitted sensual pleasures
into Paradise." The sensual pleasures are graphically
elaborated by Al-Suytti (died 1505 C.E.), Qur'anic
commentator and polymath. He wrote:
time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin.
Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens.
The erection is eternal; The sensation that you feel
each time you make love is utterly delicious and out
of this world and were you to experience it in this
world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e.,
Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris,
besides the women he married on earth, and all will
have appetizing vaginas."
seen entirely from the male point of view, women's
sexuality is admitted but seen as something to be feared,
repressed, and a work of the devil."
