Missionary Mishaps: Threatens to Disable my Account for Exposing a Misquoted Hadith

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

A little back story. The missionary made some erratic claim about a hadith found in a collection not available in English, it’s called the Musnad of Abu Dawud at-Tayalisi. I asked the Missionary to provide the original source and he then stated he didn’t know it and that he’s never seen it, but rather this alleged English version of the hadith was just taken from a website. So I procured the ahadith collection, screenshotted the hadith and posted it. I even gave him the link to the text. Turns out he didn’t like that and flipped out. Here he threatens to have my account disabled by ‘mass reporting’ with his many ‘fake accounts’. Later he turned up in the School of Oriental and African Studies’ group (SOAS) and he was promptly banned for his petulant behaviour. This was his threat to me:



What an angry man. I can understand his frustration though. Here he is, doing the Lord’s work, trying to convert Muslims with some spuriously research garbage and all of a sudden, someone comes with actual research and study. It can be infuriating. My sympathies are with him.

[Postponed] Upcoming Lecture: Unveiling Missionary Tactics

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,


In continuing with our monthly lectures (atleast once a month), this week I’ll be focusing on Missionary Tactics on the street, and if time permits, on the internet as well. Last week’s talk on Allaah’s love in Christianity and Islam lasted for an hour whereas it was carded for only 20 or 30 minutes, so I’d say to expect this talk to last for an hour or so as well. Unfortunately we had a recording issue with the first lecture but that will be sorted out, inshaAllaah (God willing) for this week’s talk.


Hope to see you all there.

I Broke Another Missionary

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

This morning I turned into a missionary’s worse nightmare. I’m sort of like the chap that comes to the car dealership, tests drives the car and it fails on me, I return to test drive another and it fails as well. Thus, it would appear that I’m not good for the dealership business. Similarly, I’m not good for missionaries either. After my initial run this morning, I decided to approach a Christian who has been on my list for sometime. As you will see:

  1. I asked a question that he could not answer.
  2. He knows he had no answer.
  3. So he repeated his wrong answer in hopes I’d stop asking.




As you would eventually see, his patience finally ran out and he began typing in all caps. Clearly I’ve gotten on his nerves, I guess that whole ‘love your enemy’ mantra doesn’t seem to be working right about now…



I’ve been told that the antidote to my questions is a dose of Islam, available everywhere and best of all, free of charge!

A Christian Learns that Muslims do not Succumb to Childish Tactics [Updated!]

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

Missionaries have employed a vast variety of tactics to drag the Muslim into debate, solely for the purpose of taking control of the conversation, negating the Muslim’s belief and establishing Christianity as the dominant faith. Many do not understand that this is a reality, they think that these missionaries are innocent minded. However, a missionary on our very own page, despite his explicit arrogance, outed himself in a cry of frustration. He explains that despite all of his manoeuvring to drag me into a submissive position of argument, he’s failed constantly. What he does not understand is that I am no child. Despite being 20, I am familiar with the missionary mentality. Not only that, due to my Islamic upbringing, I also have developed a thick skin and a knack for being patient with confrontational people.


He mistakenly assumes that by not being able to capture me in debate, it is due to me backing out. The truth is, he hasn’t been able to capture me in petulant and low level thought arguments because I cut him off at every chance he gets. Essentially, foresight is key and so is socratic thinking. In layman’s terms, I know what arguments he will use and the string of logic which follows, so I negate his premises, thus rendering his argument null and void. Since his argument has been refuted, he’s unable to move forward and thus he’s cut off from preaching to me.

He speaks so candidly, that he even admits to assuming I have a camera in his mind so I can see his thoughts. Surely, this is a sign from Allaah that I’m atleast doing something right. Knowledge is key and in my few years of discussion and dialogue, Christians have few intelligible arguments. I read their texts, studied and understood their reasoning and because of this, I became able to foresee their train of thought and as I have aforementioned, I am now able to shut them down in an elegant and precise manner. He thought that being loud and abrasive would help, but my patience persevered over his stone age tactics. He thought that by insulting my pride, I would have no choice but to respond, what he does not understand is that in Islam we are taught humility and we are humble to all due to our submission to our Lord, Allaah ta ‘aala.

Finally, he says that he tried to portray himself as a liar so that I would jump at the chance to attack and embarrass him, but this too did not work. He does not yet understand that we do not do this to attack, or hate on anyone, but to sincerely guide them to the truth. The missionary mind is very close minded, and this is a rear glimpse into what effective da’wah does to the Missionary. He is unable to think properly, his methods have failed, his arguments have backfired. He’s unable to evoke an emotional response from the Muslim. So what is he to conclude? That I am unlearned and unstable! Funny and ironic as it may be, his own words are testament to my character. I’m not unlearned, nor unstable, I am a Muslim who understands Islam and because of this, I recognize the reality of Christian missionary work, subsequently, I am able to decommission missionaries by doing little and causing them much frustration!

Allaah is indeed the Most Merciful!


Shortly after this post, our friend Victor decided to comment once more:


This is what I call the emotional self affirmation,  the missionary has now presented himself with a precarious situation. He decides that although he admitted to being deceitful, that he willingly attacked my pride, that he pretended to be ignorant, in the end I am the one who is the coward. To compensate for such a lame argument he added a bout of laughter that really shows his nervous reaction to the mess he’s found himself in. Then he sought to once again, admit that he exposed himself. It’s good that he realised what he’s done, but then he shoots himself in the foot again by explaining more of his method.

He’s decided to go to another Muslim page and ‘perform a massacre’, such violent rhetoric is abhorrent and quite distasteful, certainly Christ did not usher and motivate the disciples by telling them to massacre the Jews! Alas, we must differentiate between the Christians of today and the faithful disciples of Christ. Lastly, he concludes that us Muslims cannot defend anything and then ends with saying we should wait for him. Most certainly we shall wait for him and we will enjoy watching him fumble once more. I think I’ve broken this missionary, thank God there are a couple million more for me to enjoy.
