Taqiyya is the name of an Islamic deceit. In fact, Taqiyya is the Holy Hypocrisy, or the Holy Deception. The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding. It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. The Mullahs in Iran, and Arabian Leaders in the Arab world routinely say one thing to English-speaking audiences and then something entirely different to their own people in Farsi or Arabic. And it’s applied Taqiyya ! The Mullahs (Khamenei, Mesbah Yazdi, etc) say: “Concealing or disguising ones beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of imminent danger is permissible. Taqiyya has been used by Muslims since the 7th century to confuse and split the enemy. Lying is wrong, except in three things: the lie of a man to his wife ! to make her content with him! a lie to an enemy, for war is deception ; or a lie to settle trouble between people. We smile in the face of some people, non-Muslims, while our hearts curse them.” In fact, the Mullahs and Joseph Goebbels both agree that: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State/the Religion can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State/the Religion to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State/the Religion ”
Taqiyyah means ‘concealing one’s faith due to fear, but in one’s heart, the person must believe in the religion s/he is concealing’. Though not called Taqiyya by name, Muhammad clearly used deception when he signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans that allowed him access to their city while he secretly prepared his own forces for a takeover. One Hadith (the sayings of Mohammed and his successors) in particular mentions that Muhammad waited 13 years, until he could gain a sufficient number of loyal supporters, before combating his powerful polytheistic enemies in Mecca. A story about Ali, the first Holy Shia Imam and Muhammads son-in-law, shows us how he made use of “Holy Lie” in Kheibar war against a non-Muslim legendary hero. Ali told lie to him about his horse and saddle, and then when he was looking at his saddle, Ali killed him suddenly. Muhammad said: “Ali is our hero, and his sword is the sword of Allah. War is deception.” All Iranians have heard this story, because the Mullahs told them it many times in the school ! These days, the Khamenei’s state TV shows a TV series, “Mokhtar”, about one of the Islamic hero. It clearly shows and says that “Deception and dirty Politic” is the main pillar of Islam, and Mokhtar was the man of deception and politic. It is an irrefutable fact that the use of Taqiyyah can be proved from both Koran and Hadith. Following are ‘some’ Ayahs from Quran to prove Taqiyyah:
First verse (Surah An-Nahal, verse 106) : “Anyone who after accepting faith in Allah utters unbelief except under compulsion his heart remaining firm in faith but such as open their breast to unbelief on them is Wrath from Allah and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty”. Muslim scholars agree that this verse descended in relation to the suffering of Ammar bin Yasir. Jalaladeen Suyuti in his commentary of this verse states: “The non-believers once caught Ammar bin Yasir and they forced him to say praise their false gods and to condemn Prophet Muhammad. They forced him to an extent that Ammar bin Yasir gave in an exceeded to their demands. After that, when he returned to the Mohammed, Ammar narrated the whole story to him. The Muhammad asked him, how do you feel in your heart? To which Ammar replied, I am fully content with Allah’s religion in my heart. To this the Mohammed said, if non-believers ask you to say the same again, say it. At which time the following ayah was descended.” Regarding this verse, an Imam of Ahl ul Sunnah commented: “All scholars of the Muslim Ummah agree on the fact that at times when one is forced, one can denounce Islam.” (Tafseer Mu’alim al Tnazeel, Volume 2).
Second verse (Surah Al-Imran, verse 28): “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.” Imam Bukhari records in his Sahih: In this ayah we read Except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them and this is Taqqiyah Allamah Fakhruddin Razi had commented on this verse: “Undoubtedly, there is no harm in practicing Taqiyyah if a believer is caught up between non-believers and his life or property is under threat from them. In such circumstances he should conceal his enmity from them. In fact, he should talk in such a manner that his words should show passion. His hear should not confirm what he is saying. Taqiyyah does not have an effect on one’s heart; it only has an external effect. ” (Tafseer Kabeer, Volume 2) So both Sunni and Shia confirm the use of Taqiyyah to protect Islam and ones life. Narrated Ka’b ibn Malik: When the Prophet, Muhammad, intended to go on an expedition, he always pretended to be going somewhere else!, and he would say: War is deception” Ibn al-Arabi declares that “in the Hadith, practicing deceit in war is well demonstrated. Indeed, its need is more stressed than the need for courage !! ” Every Islamic sect agrees to Taqiyyah and practices it. But it’s very interesting that the Khwaarij are the only Sect that reject Taqiyyah !! The Mullahs say that the Khwaarij was Muslim fanatics and Killed Ali, etc. but the Khwaarij rejected Taqiyyah !! or holy hypocrisy. There are other example of Taqiyyah in first decades of Islam. Hanafi Fatwa: “At the time of danger, one can swear at Rasulullah”. And Abdullah Ibn Umar practiced Taqiyyah in the presence of Mu’awiya.
The Mullahs in Iran, and Arabian Leaders in the Arab world routinely say one thing to English-speaking audiences and then something entirely different to their own people in Farsi or Arabic. And it’s applied Taqiyya. But the Mullahs and Muslim clergy are subtle, and clearly don’t talk about Taqiyya for non-Muslims. For instance, American Muslims say: “Some Islamophobic writers regularly refer to Taqiyya as if it gives all Muslims a pass to lie to non-Muslims … Taqiyya actually refers to a controversial minority doctrine !!! ” But we should note that what American Muslim leaders say, itself, is Taqiyya !!! In fact, Taqiyaa is recursive !, and the Mullahs and Muslim leaders use Taqiyya for defining Taqiyya !! and deceive non-Muslims about Taqiyaa !!! All things that the Mullahs and Muslim leaders say about Freedom, democracy, peaceful nuclear energy, peace with non-Muslims, live with non-Muslims, woman rights, etc. all are Taqiyya, i.e. Islamic hypocrisy. Khomeini made use of Taqiyaa in Paris, and before Islamic Revolution of 1979. The Mullahs and the Muslim leaders, i.e. the orthodox Islam, reject Freedom, democracy, peaceful nuclear energy, peace with non-Muslims, live with non-Muslims, woman rights, etc. The greatest Iranian tragedy, i.e the Islamic Revolution of 1979, should be a historical lesson and a historical example for all human beings, and anyone should not make the same terrible mistake in the future.
