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.

What if we compromise with Islam (2)?

Why do some westerners want to compromise with Islam? What kind of future will our children have if Islam is rewarded and praised in our societies? Has any Islamic country done so well with Islam that we want to compromise with Islam in order to share in the same benefits?
Let us see what picture of Islam is given in the Qur’an:
Spiritually: Sin is inspired in man by Allah (Q.91:7-8). In other words, man has been corrupted by Allah’s own hands. Doesn’t the sin inspired by Allah affect Muslims’ spiritual, social, moral, political and economic life? It does.
Socially: Muslims are better than others (Q.3:110), and among Muslims men are superior to women (Q.4:34). Wives are asked to abide at home and not to go in public (Q.33:33). Husbands beat their wives (Q.4:34; 38:44). Non-Muslims are unclean (najis in Arabic) (Q.9:28). Those who reject Islam are dogs and evil (Q.7:175-177). Jews are called monkey, pig and donkey (Q.2:65; 5:60; 62:5) and Christians are called monkey (Q.5:60). Muslims are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind… (Q.3:110).
Politically: Muslims are called not only to avoid friendship with Christians and Jews and others (Q.5:51), but also to avoid friendship with their own fathers and brothers who are not committed to Islam (Q.9:23). Other religions and believers are fully unacceptable (Q.3:85). And Jihad is ordained for Muslims against the followers of other religions and beliefs (Q.2:216). Allah loves those who do battle for his cause (Q.61:4). So, the imposition of the Islamic Law (Shari’a Law) is the global vision of the Qur’an.
Morally: The Qur’an states that Allah has inspired sin (immorality) in humankind (Q.91:8). There are shocking and shameful statements about both Muslim and non-Muslim women in the Qur’an (i.e. Q.33 and 24:31,33). Such statements become even uglier in the Islamic traditions where they are even applied to infant girls. In addition, Islam teaches lying and deceiving as legitimate tools for the sake and progress of religion (Q.2:225; 3:28; 16:106). These verses establish that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
Economically: The Qur’an says, “It is not for a believer, man and woman, to have any choice in their affairs, when Allah and his apostle have decreed a matter…(Q.33:36). That is why there is not a definition for work in Islam. Everything you earn belongs to Muhammad (and his representatives) and Allah. If even Muslims do not have any choice in their relationship with Muslims, what about non-Muslims who are called animals?
Committed Muslims and the Qur’an have already responded to the opening question. They will not compromise with the values of unclean West, but they are delighted if the West chooses to compromise with Islam and put itself under Islam’s yoke.
Islam is challenging not just our democratic values but additionally is forcing us to surrender to its bondage? Sadly, unwillingness to solve the problem of Islam has penetrated almost every aspect of life in the West and non-Islamic countries? Are we waiting for Muslim leaders to do something? Aren’t we aware that the Qur’an teaches Muslims to erode the life values of non-Muslims?
Do we feel responsible for the well being of our family, community and country? Do we believe our lives should reflect that there is a difference between good and evil? Do we? If yes, then let us stand against Islamic intimidation by living for Christ, attaching ourselves strongly to His holiness, justice, love and victory.
