NY Daily News: “Extremists distort powerful meaning of ‘Allahu Akbar’ in acts of terrorism”


This is madness. A mad obsession. The NY Times has now run two pro-Allahu akbar pieces in as many pieces. And now it’s the NY Daily News. It is why I wrote my book, FATWA: Hunted in America.

After every jihad massacre, the enemedia rushes to scrub and whitewash Islam. This is their first and foremost priority. And so now we’re hearing about how the phrase “Allahu akbar,” which jihadis routinely shout as they kill, is really just wonderful. The fact is “Allahu akbar” was Muhammad’s jihadi war cry. It was the “rebel yell” of the invading Muslim armies. Muhammad would wait until daybreak before he would strike a village. If he heard the Muslim call to prayer and the identifying “Allahu akbar” chanted in that prayer, he would not attack. If the Muslim call to prayer was not heard, Muhammad and his mujaheddin would then kill, rape, pillage while screaming, “Allahu akbar!,” Allah is greater [than your god].

This campaign by the left to dissemble, deceive and disarm the American people in the greatest threat to our lives is evil.

Allahu Akbar.

It’s one of the most frequently spoken pentasyllabic phrases in the Arabic language.

It is recited by millions of Muslims and Arab Christians every day.

And, at least in the West, it has become wrongly linked to terrorism.

Known as the takbir in Arabic, the phrase literally translates to “God is the greatest.”

American-Muslims like myself are reclaiming it — from both the misguided extremists who have misappropriated it, and the pundits who’ve supported their agenda by deliberately or inadvertently endorsing its weaponization.

This phrase is used in a multitude of ways: in worship or prayer; in moments of happiness or relief; to glorify and reflect on God’s majesty; to express joy and dismay; in appreciation of something that resonates with us….

Unfortunately, the copious amounts of misinformation that exists about Islam and Muslims makes some Americans more inclined to believe the worst.

Islamophobes capitalize on this to exploit terrorist acts involving Muslims as being falsely reflective of Islam.

Understanding appropriate context and consulting legitimate sources is crucial when contemplating religion partly because it can help prevent fear, anger and hatred.

Recently, in a despicable and cowardly attack, the man accused of killing eight people after plowing a Home Depot truck onto a bike path in Manhattan reportedly uttered Allahu Akbar after the incident.

He joins a list of others who’ve reportedly said these words after brutal acts of violence

But don’t be deceived by extremists who use this phrase while waging discord and wreaking terror….

So the next time you hear Allahu Akbar — whether it’s in a media report, on an airplane, or in a shopping mall, remember that the phrase used by millions of Muslims and Christians daily to praise God regardless of their circumstances, can never be justified for use when harming His creation.
