The Information Age inevitably poses the greatest danger to Islam. First, the Quran, hadiths, Sira and other Islamic biographies of Muhammad have been translated from Arabic into English language. Second, these materials which hitherto were under the lock and key of Muslim leaders are now freely available and accessible to everyone on the Internet.
So for the first time in 1400 years, many people – even those living in Islamic strongholds – can now freely expose the falsehoods of Islam without being silenced by swords and daggers. Many Muslims are now being confronted with the many lies, absurdities, filth and violence that permeate their religion and rejecting it wholesale.
This is giving Muslim leaders sleepless nights. Given that the inglorious sex paradise promised to Muslims in the Quran has become a common knowledge to pesky non-Muslims, they are struggling to string together defenses that won’t upset their applecart. Now, when you bring up Muhammad’s playboy mansion paradise in a discourse, Muslims will quickly tell you to knock it off because Jesus also promised Christians a 100 fold of wives in heaven. They’d quote Matthew 19:29
“And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”
To grasp the context of what Jesus was saying, let’s read its parallel passages:
“I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields- and with them persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life” (Mark 10:29-30).
“I tell you the truth,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life” (Luke 18:29-30).
What the Lord is saying is that Christians will receive restoration of their possessions and family relationships with persecution here on earth – in this age – and in the age to come (or heaven), they will receive eternal life. Nothing here about getting 100 virgins, pretty boys or endless sex. Our God is not a pimp!
Muslims assert that we will also be drinking alcohol in heaven just as their Allah promised them rivers of wine in paradise. They quote Matthew 26:29 “But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
The future event Jesus is referring to here is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, when He will come together with all His people to share the juice of the fruit of the vine as one of the things to enjoy (vs 26-28). The “fruit of the vine” is not alcohol. The Greek word there is ampelos meaning “vine or grapevine.” It was juice derived from grape and a common Jewish health drink. There is no such thing as “rivers of wine” in Jesus’ heaven, what He promises is “the water of life” (Rev. 21:6) and we know the water of life doesn’t stand for wine or any liquor.
God says that “no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man … has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 5:5-6).
The Bible lists out sins such as sexual immorality, impurity, drunkenness, orgies and it warns: “those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God” (Gal. 5:19-21). Muhammad lied. There’s no river of wine or milk that will be greasing the Muslim throat in the afterlife. Sura 5:90 says wine, among other things, is an “abomination of Satan’s handiwork,” so why is it a reward in Allah’s paradise?
The Quran, being a misogynist book, promises men sex with beautiful maidens (hoor) but says nothing about women being rewarded with handsome men in paradise. When a Muslim threw this question at Zakir Naik, a Muslim apologist, he answered that the Arabic word “hoor” means a genderless “companion,” thus women will also get “men with big beautiful eyes.”
The problem with this tepid answer is that the term hoor in Arabic is used exclusively for a woman; it’s not used for a man. For example:
“They will recline (with ease) upon coaches arranged in ranks, and We shall wed them to maidens, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes” (Q 52:22).
“And (there will be) Houris (fair females) with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious)” (Q 56:22).
“And with them will be chaste females restraining their glances (desiring none except their husbands), with wide and beautiful eyes” (Q 37:48).
“Verily, We have created them (maidens) of special creation. And made them virgins. Loving (their husbands only), equal in age” (Q56:35-37).
Notice that in all these passages, not once is the term “big beautiful eyes” used for a man, neither do they suggest that men are also reserved for Muslim women. A Quranic commentary on Sura 56:35-37 says that Muhammad was asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! Will we have sexual intercourse with our wives in Paradise?” He said “The man will be able to have sexual intercourse with a hundred virgins in one day” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Vol. 9, Surat Al-Munafiqun, 430). Nothing is said about women being rewarded with studs.
Muhammad is also quoted as saying: “Allah will not admit anyone in the Paradise but Allah, the Mighty and glorious will marry him with 72 wives, two will be from virgin (houris) with big eyes and 70 will be his inheritance from the people of the Hell-Fire. Every one of them will have a pleasant vagina and he (the man) will have sexual organ that does not bend down during sexual intercourse (perpetual erection)” (Ibn Majah 5:4337).
Once again, no reward of 72 men for women is stated. Muhammad even boasted that one of his sex partners in Jannah would be Mary the mother of Jesus!
“The Messenger of God … said ‘God married me in paradise to Mary the Daughter of ‘Imran and to the wife of Pharaoh and the sister of Moses.’ (Tabarani)” (Ibn Kathir, Qisas al-Anbiya, 1968, 381)
Islamic scholar, Ali Dashti wrote: “According to the Cambridge Tafsir, the word thayyebat (widows or divorcees) refers to Pharaoh’s wife Asiya, and the word virgins (akbar) refers to Jesus’ mother Mary, both of whom are waiting to be married to the Prophet Mohammed in heaven” (23 Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammed, 1994, 138).
Even in his wildest imagination, Muhammad didn’t conceive of women being rewarded as men are. Some have suggested that the “young boys” mentioned in Sura 34:24, 76:19 and 56:33 are reserved for women, but in all these passages, these boys are specifically said to be for men’s service. The ugly truth is that there will be few (if any) Muslim women in Jannah according to Muhammad:
“Then I saw the (hell) fire, and I have never before seen such a horrible sight as that and I saw that majority of its dwellers were women. The people asked ‘O Allah’s Apostle! What is the reason for that?’ He replied, ‘because of their ungratefulness…” (Bukhari 7:62:125)
Muslim apologists never quote these portions because to do so would be fatal to their cause. One Muslim scholar wistfully told the media that the Quran didn’t really promise men 72 virgins, but 72 raisins. Of course, we know these 72 “raisins” have beautiful eyes, white skin and swelling breasts.
Take the sex paradise away from Islam and jihad will wane. All the Muslims willing to kill and die for Islam look forward to a celestial brothel. The Islamist attackers in Paris and London of late, had their hopes hinged on a bogus promise of an eternal sex orgy.
I read about a criminal who robbed people and killed them in order to lavish money on a stripper he had fallen in love with. He didn’t mind killing many people because of sex with a harlot. The moral economy behind jihad is no different from this.
Dear Muslim, there are no wide-eyed heavenly harlots for you; no pretty boys, rivers of wine, fruits or chicken meat for you when you shout “Allahu Akbar!” and kill people, rape kafir women or fight for Islam. Muhammad fooled you. He deceived you. He appealed to your base instincts – the desire for food, sex and wine – to keep you bound. But there is a better path. There is a God who loves you, who He sent His Son Jesus Christ, to pay for your forgiveness and give you a new life. Ask Him to be your Lord. To follow Muhammad is to be eternally damned.
