A Site to Examine

I appreciate honesty even if I disagree with the person.

I was led by a commenter at Jihad Watch to a site written by a Muslim listing and explaining some things that are forbiden (or haram) by Islam.

Some haram items:

Shaving your beard:
Many scholars have stated that shaving the beard is Tagyeeru Khalqillah (changing the creation of Allah). Allah mentions in the Holy Quran the promise of Satan, “Indeed I will order them (Mankind) to change the nature created by Allah” (4:119). In effect, the one who shaves his beard is obeying Satan. The great Caliph Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz would say, “Shaving the beard is Muthlah (mutilation). Verily the Prophet has prohibited Muthlah”. A similar verdict has also been narrated from the great Imam of Madina Munawwarah, Imam Malik.

Chess !?!?
The playing of chess is Haraam. If the playing of chess is accompanied by gambling than its prohibition is unanimous. If it is played without gambling then there is a difference of opinion in its prohibition. Where Allah Ta’aala declared alcohol and gambling as forbidden, he explained the reason for this prohibition. Allah says in the holy Quran that Shaytan desires to create an ill feeling amongst you. He desires to create hatred among you, and to direct your attention from Salaat and Allah Taa’las remembrance. So wherever this is present, the prohibition will come into force, and that practice will become Haraam. All are aware of the degree of absorption in these games.
Absorption in this game (chess) is so much, that we seek the protection of Allah Ta’ala. The truth of the matter is that when someone becomes rooted in some practice and this practice penetrates his very blood and veins, then until
death it remains overpowering, and in this very practice a man finally dies.

And a number of other interesting items.Now admittedly some of them do make sense but in these areas they are merely repeating commands that God really did give.

yea I knew chess was a very ancient game invented somewhere in the middle eastern region.

They maybe nut jobs but they are masterful tacticians.Thus the professional lying and conartistry.

Part of the overall strategy...

Sounds like an open invitation for a good beheading to me. Don't say nothing about someone assisting in the matter.

I'm sure it is interpreted as such by those nutjobs.

Problem is that everything is subject to interpretation. In the west, the individual is allowed to form his own interpretation, in Islam, their not, and it allows for radicalization in that interpretation by the Imam, who is to be followed into hell if necessary.

Wonder where Allah stood on Monopoly? I've never played a game of Monopoly that hasn't ended in very "ill feelings" amongst the participants.
