Native Deen, a Muslim hip hop group that you might have heard in our show "Black & Universal" has released a new music video for the My Faith, My Voice campaign "in response to the rising tide of Islamophobia facing America, especially in the wake of the New York Islamic cultural center controversy." I've written about the fear embracing some Muslims in the United States lately, and I'm digging the music and the way in which these moderate voices are making statements in their own artistic way. Sing on!

Don't forget, we used their tune M-U-S-L-I-M in the Chaplain Muhammad program!

Native Deen - My Faith My Voice

(lyric) “They try to blame all us”
Can you give me the name of a public critic of Islam that has blamed all Muslims for the violence perpetrated in the name of the Qur’an, Hadith, the Prophet, and the example of his life?

I have never blamed “all you”, nor have I heard a leading atheist or Christian who has not taken pains to do just the opposite, that is, to not generalize blame to the whole of those calling themselves Muslims.

(lyric) “I know how the prophet lived, and I know what he taught us”…”my master plan”
Per the plain reading of the Qur'an and the Hadith Muhammad was himself and instructed others to be:
Armed robber Qur’an (2:217)
Torturer Ibn Ishaq 436, LoM page 515
Murderer Tabari 7:97
Extortionist Qur’an (9:5), Qur’an (9:29), Muslim (19:4294)
Slaver Qur'an (33:50), Qur'an (4:24), Bukhari (34:351),
Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 484
Rapist Bukhari (34:432)
Polygamist Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268
Pedosexual Sahih Muslim, Book 8: Number 3309
Wife beater Qur'an (4:34), Muslim (4:2127)
Genocidal conquering warlord Qur’an (2:191-193),
Saifur Rahman, The Sealed Nectar p.227-228

These are textual facts (many additional citations available below) of the Qur'an and the Hadith, increasingly practiced over his lifetime until Muhammad finally encouraged his successors to spread his conquest of Arabia to the world (Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-‘As) by these same methods.

You describe your master plan with great sincerity, I believe you, and you fully deserve all the opportunity to live your life so positively. Unfortunately, the plain words of the Qur’an and the Hadith have a master plan of genocide, slavery, extortion, and violent subjugation for those who are not Muslim men.

Violence, robbery, extortion, and genocidal conquests of Muhammad’an/023-violence.htm

"Muhammad is a narcissist, a pedophile, a mass murderer,
a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman
a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter."
Former Muslim Ali Sina offered $50,000 to anyone
who could prove otherwise based on Islamic texts.
The reward has gone unclaimed.

(lyric) “Islam has been hijacked”
I encourage you to read all 5 issues of Dabiq available here:

Note the many references to the Qur’an, Hadith, the Prophet, and Allah.

I urge you to read all the passages sited above, listen to them sung on the many available Arabic language sites that sing the entire Qur’an, and then tell me if the Qur’an and the Hadith have been hijacked, or merely taken seriously by IS and every other Islamist organization.

(lyric)“Stop the hate ya’ll let’s join the same team”
Indeed, well said. Nearly all who have studied the Islamic holy books, and are so very much opposed to the doctrine of those books, greatly share your desire for mutual love.

Best wishes
