About Daniel Shayesteh

Dr Daniel was born into a Muslim family in Northern Iran. He became a radical Muslim leader and teacher of Islam in the militant Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement, closely supporting Ayatollah Khomeini. However, after falling out of favor with Khomeini’s political group, he escaped to Turkey where there began an amazing journey to faith in Jesus Christ.

Daniel's mission is to help others understand and lovingly respond to those who do not know Christ. He is also deeply concerned for the future of Western societies, their loss of confidence in Judeo-Christian values, and their persistent naivete about the implications of the world-wide Islamic revival.

The Qur'an hates moderates

In chapter (sura) 9:23, 81, the Qur’an says:

You who believe (Muslims)! Do not take your fathers and your brothers on as sponsors (“Avliya” in Arabic which means supervisor or warden) if they prefer disbelief rather than faith (Islam).  Anyone of you who enlists them as sponsors are wrongdoers (“Zalimoon” in Arabic which means cruel people).

Those who were left behind are delighted to sit around inactive behind Allah’s messenger, and they hate to struggle (fight) in Allah’s way with their property and persons.  They say: “Don’t march off in such heat!”  Say:  “Hellfire will be even hotter,” if they could only understand.

Chapter 33:36 of the Qur’an also says:

No believing (Muslim) man nor any believing woman should exercise any choice in their affair once Allah and his messenger have decided upon some matter.  Anyone who disobeys Allah and his messenger has wandered off into manifest error.

These and many other verses in the Qur’an prove that any Muslim who speaks of choice (moderates) or does not attend jihad is sinning, cruel and is not taken as a friend by any faithful Muslim.

There are many Muslims who are moderates.  But these Muslims are not interested in following the foot-steps of Muhammad or taking a religious position.  They know if they take such a position, they have to be harsh and disrespectful to others, even to their moderate Muslim parents or siblings.  Often, they say, “We do not want to turn our country to the Arabia of 1400 years ago.  Unlike the culture of the Qur’an (above verse), middle-eastern culture encourages a great deal of respect towards parents.  Even though Islam has spoiled the culture in many ways, its encouragement of disrespect is still one of the reasons that it has not been able to win greater numbers of Muslims for radicalism.  One of the revolutionary judges in Iran sentenced his two sons to death, and after two decades Iranians still consider it as an evil act, even though it was Islamic and Qur’anic.

In the middle-east every body knows that anyone who takes over the leadership of a religious body serves for the cause of Islam.  This person must act in accordance with the call of Muhammad and the law of Islam.  Those with a middle-eastern background, who live in the west, clearly understand the subtle lies of Muslim leaders who claim to be moderate.  They know that it is these so-called Muslim leaders who asphalt the roads for the law of Islam and in a manipulative way glorify the killings in the name of Allah.  If these so-called moderate leaders did not exist in the west, the jihadist groups in the west would not be able to succeed and advance.   These leaders are indeed the real servants of Muhammad who ordered an invasion of the rights of moderate Muslims and non-Muslims.
