From Dr. J. Ahmed Salib

Dear Sirs and/or Madames:

It has come to my attention that you have, in a recent post, decried a website bearing the articles of myself and my colleague, Sarah Ghorab. The website belongs to Faith Freedom, and the posting is here: http://www.freekareem.org/2007/07/02/our-campaign-is-not-associated-with-faith-freedom/ .

I fully agree that you have the right to associate or break with whomever you see fit, whether personally or professionally. What I do not agree with is the repulsive manner in which you went about effecting this break. I say “break” because your citation of my article above was not the first mention you have made, however distasteful my article may have been to you.

To this end, I must respond to the charges, state my rebuttal, and express my feelings on this matter.

To begin with, I have never signed on with Faith Freedom. I am not decrying them in the least, but I did not sign up with them or with any other organization.

That is to say I am not affiliated with any association or website or publication except my website, http://www.ahmedsalib.com .

I have (gratefully) noticed that numerous websites have picked up some of my articles, and while a few have asked permission (or gone as far as requesting my take on something) a great majority have done so without my knowledge or express permission (they have it, however).

In fact, I don’t seem to recall allowing you to post my translation of Kareem’s “incriminating” essay on your site.

I don’t blame you for having nicked it, my translation was far and away the most accurate and literal one your site has ever posted (you really must look into getting better translation software, some of your Arabic-to-English’s have been abominable).

What I do blame you for is for having the nerve to post my words—not a link to them, mind, but the actual words—while providing an unfriendly disclaimer against my analysis.

Let’s now take a trip back in time, just in case you forgot what you said:

“DISCLAIMER: The creators of the Free Kareem campaign would like to stress the fact that they do not agree with the contents of this article.”

Please. Don’t give yourself airs. Nobody’s visiting the site to hear what you have to say, they just care about young Kareem and his fate. You’re a non-entity. Important (in this case) only for the news you carry. A vessel or a channel.

What’s more, you could have been kinder in denouncing the views stated in my article, especially when I have not said anything (literally) that Kareem hasn’t said himself.

Very interesting, is it not, that you should defend Kareem’s right to say it—in a Moslem country, no less—but not me in the West.

If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were using him as a “cause” to attract attention to yourselves, whether for worldwide fame or your resumes or to feel that you really did make a difference in the world (longing to break free of your vessel-tude, are we?)… or to show how open-minded you are—that the maligned would stand up to defend the speech of someone who maligned them. How magnanimous!

While I’m on that subject, it also feels, at times—and maybe I’m the only one that feels this way, and if so, I’ll shut up—that you’re using the platform you’ve ill-obtained in order to make frequent judgment calls and disseminate false information.

Not about Kareem, for you’ve done a great job in that respect. The false information is rather the image you’re trying to cloak Islam in. If Islam were as you purport, a haven of freedom, I’d be the first to defend it. (And my beef with you today is nothing to do with Islam, though because you seem to enjoy being the voice of Moderate Modern Islam, I have to confront this issue.)

The truth, though, remains that no self respecting mufti or imam would agree with the level of tolerance you’d like us to believe you have. Not that you’re tolerant of people like me, which basically puts you in the same boat as an American “liberal” who will defend atheists and gays and pagans and, yes, Moslems—but try to restrict or at least be intolerant of Christians and our rights.

Personally I prefer the death threats and disgust that some Moslems toss my way, at least they’re honest about it (as I am, when writing my thoughts on and arguments against your religion).

Can’t everyone just live and let live? There’s a tiny (alright, miniscule-ly infinitesimal) chance that it’s Islam that’s right and if so, maybe I’m OK with being an infidel.

Maybe I don’t want to go to heaven (have a look at this article of the same name, since you love my work so much: https://ahmedsalib.wordpress.com/2006/03/09/maybe-i-don%E2%80%99t-want-to-go-to-heaven/); can’t you be pro-choice and let me choose hell?

Or, more to the point, can’t you quote my article without bellyaching about how you disagree?

Be a man. This is how to do it:

“Have a look at the translation on this article (their opinions are their own, by the way).”

There, was that so painful? Did that make you look like less of a devout Moslem because you mentioned an anti-Moslem page without breaking into death threats? If that is the case, then I’d seriously call into question what sort of religion you belong to, but I will save that for my next article.

In closing, I am unhappy at your opportunistic (and theatrically reluctant) use of my translation, your unfair lumping of us with Faith Freedom (only because you seem to posit Sara and I as ambassadors for them, when we’re just private citizens), and your coattail-riding (especially sad, since a young man’s health and very life are the cost of your fame).

I could have added the sin of “disrespecting the writer who pulled the lid off the case in the Western world” to your list of offences, only that’s beneath me. (And yes, my article was the first english-language non-press release non-blog post bona fide ARTICLE that appeared, right after his expulsion in 2006.)

I am sorry to say that the way you have handled your campaign may turn people off to Kareem’s cause. Your page is consistently sanctimonious, and could never be called objective or unbiased.

Perhaps my work isn’t either, but at least I am not using a poor helpless and wrongly imprisoned boy as a front for my feisty pieces.

It is with sadness that I close this letter. Sadness because your campaign was more unbiased and fact based when you first began and your fame has gone to your head.

Remember always that this good cause (freedom in general and Kareem in particular) does not belong to you, and that while you may have done stacks of work to promote it, while I may have written the first proper article about it in english, it would have made its way to hundreds of papers on its own strength, without either of us.

Despite my distaste for your ploys, I do still wish Kareem the best, and continue to daily pray for him.

And I wish you a speedy recovery from the hydrocephalus that you’ve recently contracted.

Best wishes,
J. Ahmed Salib

PS—
I expect that you will either totally ignore this letter, or else share it among yourselves and be outraged and “Can you BELIEVE that guy??” and “We’re SO persecuted, and all we’re trying to do is help!” for days. I briefly considered including another possible mode of action, one where you post this and collect sympathy from your fans/warn them against me, but I don’t think you’re that far gone. I also toyed with the notion of including the possibility that you may remove all mentions of me and my work on your site, but again, that would undermine what we’re all trying to expediently do in different ways such as writing, collecting info, getting the word out, holding rallies, speaking to congress, et cetera.
Let’s call a truce and agree to disagree, ok?

Who Taught Allah Math?

March 14, 2007

By Ali Sina

One of the most obvious mathematical mistakes of the Quran can be found in the division of the inheritance.

The laws of inheritance are spread out in several Suras. One can find references to them in Al-Baqarah(2), Al-Maidah(5) and Al-Anfal(8). But the details of these laws are spelled out in the Surah Nisa (4).

Q. 4:11
“Allah (thus) directs you as regards your Children’s (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females: if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half. For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the (only) heirs, the mother has a third; if the deceased Left brothers (or sisters) the mother has a sixth. (The distribution in all cases (‘s) after the payment of legacies and debts…”

Q. 4: 12
“In what your wives leave, your share is a half, if they leave no child; but if they leave a child, ye get a fourth; after payment of legacies and debts. In what ye leave, their share is a fourth, if ye leave no child; but if ye leave a child, they get an eighth; after payment of legacies and debts…”

Q. 4:176
“If it is a man that dies, leaving a sister but no child, she shall have half the inheritance: If (such a deceased was) a woman, who left no child, Her brother takes her inheritance: If there are two sisters, they shall have two-thirds of the inheritance (between them): if there are brothers and sisters, (they share), the male having twice the share of the female. Thus doth Allah make clear to you (His law), lest ye err. And Allah hath knowledge of all things.”

Despite the fact that it says “Allah made them clear”, these laws are far from clear.

Verse 4:11 says that if a man has only one daughter, she gets half of the inheritance irrespective of other heirs. But since the same verse says that the portion of the male is twice that of the female, her brother is supposed to get all the inheritance. Isn’t this a discrepancy? Certainly there is an error in how this law is written. Yet the problem is aggravated further when the share of other heirs like parents and wives are taken into consideration.

There are cases when the total of the shares assigned to the heirs exceeds the patrimony. Take for example the following.

According to the above verses, if a man dies leaving behind a wife, three daughters and his two parents,

His wife’s share of his inheritance is 1/8. (In what ye leave, their share is a fourth, if ye leave no child; but if ye leave a child, they get an eighth)

His daughters would receive 2/3 (if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance;)

and his parents each will get 1/6 of his inheritance. (For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children;)

When you add all these fractions the sum is more than the total of inheritance.

Wife1/8 = 3/24
Daughters 2/3 = 16/24
Father 1/6 = 4/24
Mother1/6 = 4/24
Total = 27/24

Now take another example. Say a man is survived by his wife, his mother and his sisters.

The wife receives 1/4 of the inheritance, (In what ye leave, their share is a fourth, if ye leave no child;)

the mother 1/3 (if only one, her share is a half. For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the heirs, the mother has a third;)

and the sisters 2/3. (If there are two sisters, they shall have two-thirds of the inheritance (between them)

When we add up these fractions they too are more than the total.

Wife1/4 = 3/12
Mother 1/3 = 4/12
Sisters 2/3 = 8/12
Total = 15/12

In the above examples, the shares apportioned to the heirs exceed the total of the inheritance. In both cases the total of the inheritance sums to exactly one BEFORE taking into account the wife’s share.

What should be done if a man has two wives, one with children and the other without children? Does the one with children receive 1/8 and the one without children 1/4? And is this justice?

Now suppose a woman dies leaving a husband and a brother:

Husband receives half (In what your wives leave, your share is a half, if they leave no child.)

Brother receives everything (If (such a deceased was) a woman, who left no child, Her brother takes her inheritance.)

Does this mean that the parents, sisters and husband do not get anything? In that case where is the justice and if they do how can the brother get everything?

Husband, (1/2) = 1/2
Brother (everything) = 2/2
Total = 3/2

This verse does not specify that the brother gets everything only when there are no other heirs. It just says when there are no children he gets everything. In the same verse it says that if a man dies leaving a sister, she gets half. What will happen to the other half?

Here is another example: A woman leaves behind a husband, a sister and a mother.

Husband, (1/2) = 3/6
Sister (1/2) = 3/6
Mother (1/3) = 2/6
Total = 8/6

We can conclude that the Quran in matters of inheritance is very obtuse. It is so obtuse that Shiites and Sunnis practice this law differently. For example:

If a man leaves a wife and the two parents, the Shiits will give the wife 1/4 and then distribute the remainder as 1/3 for the mother and 2/3 for the father, i.e. they will receive 1/4 and 1/2 of the original estate (see #2741). Sunnis give the wife 1/4, the mother 1/3 and the father as the nearest male relative the rest, i.e. 5/12. As one can witness, the Quran is anything but clear.

In order to solve these problems the Islamic doctors of law have devised a complex “science” called “Al-Fara’id”. It contains rules of “Awl” and “Usbah,” and the laws of “Usool” of the Fara’id, the laws of “Hajb wa Hirman,” and many other issues relating to this matter.

The laws of “Awl” (accommodation) deals with cases when the inheritor’s shares exceed or “overshoot” the sum of the total inheritance. In such case the shares are adjusted to accommodate everyone. This is how it works:

Wife1/8 = 3/24 is changed to 3/27
Daughters 2/3 = 16/24 is changed to 16/27
Father 1/6 = 4/24 is changed to 4/27
Mother1/6 = 4/24 is changed to 4/27
Total = 27/24 27/27

and for the second case,

Wife1/4 = 3/12 is changed to 3/15
Mother 1/3 = 4/12 is changed to 4/15
Sisters 2/3 = 8/12 is changed to 8/15
Total = 15/12 15/15

Thus the problem is solved thanks to human ingenuity but the portions are not the same as indicated in the Quran. Each party has to waive part of his or her share in order to make this law work. This is a clear case in which the words of Allah needed human intervention in order to become applicable.

There are yet cases when the shares of the inheritors do not sum to a whole 100% and there is a surplus left.

Take for example a man who dies and leaves his wife and his parents.

Parents 1/3 = 4/12
Wife 1/4 = 3/12
Total = 7/12

Who will receive the balance 5/12 of the inheritance?

The following are other cases that after the distribution, there is a surplus of Inheritance::

scenario fund distributed surplus
Only a wife: = 1/4 3/4
Only a mother: = 1/3 2/3
Only a daughter = 1/2 1/2
Two daughters = 2/3 1/3
Only a Sister = 1/2 1/2
A mother and a sister = 1/3 + 1/2 = 5/6 1/6
A wife and a mother = 1/4 + 1/3 = 5/12 7/12
A sister and a wife = 1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4 1/4

In all these cases and many other combinations there is a surplus. What will happen to this surplus? Who will inherit it?

To deal with this problem the law of “Usbah” comes to effect. This law is to regulate the unclaimed shares, which have no corresponding people to receive them. Of course if the Quran was clear with no errors, there would have been no need for all these “sciences” and amendments.

The law of Usbah is based on the following Hadith.

Sahih Bukhari 8. 80. 724
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
The Prophet said, “Give the Fara’id (the shares of the inheritance that are prescribed in the Qur’an) to those who are entitled to receive it. Then whatever remains, should be given to the closest male relative of the deceased.”

According to this law, a man who dies and is survived by only his daughter with no other close male relative except a second cousin, his daughter will receive half of his inheritance and the other half will go to the man’s second cousin. This seems quite unfair to the daughter, but it would be especially unfair if the man had a needy aunt or a female first cousin that would receive nothing because they are of the wrong gender.

Now suppose that a man has no other heir except his wife and a distant male relative. The wife will receive 1/4 and the distant male relative gets the balance, i.e. three times the inheritance that his widowed wife gets. Is this justice?

What if the deceased has no male relative at all? What will happen to the rest of his inheritance? What happens in the reverse case when a wife has no relatives? The husband will receive half of her inheritance; who will get the other half?

Note that in the Quran there is no priority for the distribution of the inheritance. In nowhere it says “first give to these and from what is left, give to those”. Even if we had to reinterpret these laws and prioritize them in the order that they are mentioned, it still does not work because in that case, each subsequent inheritor will have his or her share shrunk. Also in most cases the total inheritance will never be used up.

This is the fallacy in which Mr. Sami Zaatari engages. In an attempt to refute this article Mr. Zaatari wrote: “If A [ the deceased] left a widow or widower, the widow’s or widower’s share would first be calculated as in the first half of verse 4:1”

Mr. Zaatari must show us this instruction in the Quran. There is no provision in the Quran to pay certain inheritors first and divide the rest among other heirs. The fact remains that the Quran in matters of the division of the inheritance is wrong mathematically.

The obtuseness of these laws of inheritance is further emphasized in the following example. Consider the case of a man with only one daughter and 10 sons. According to the Quran, the daughter receives half while all the sons must share among themselves the other half. So each will receive not more than 1/20 of the inheritance. But this would contradict the other ruling that a male is to receive twice the share of the female.

Of course for 1400 years Muslims have practiced Islam and somehow they managed to make these confusing laws work. How they did it? They reinterpreted, adjusted and compromised to make sense of these nonsense laws. They put all the inheritance in a pool and gave to each male child twice the share of their female siblings. This solution, though satisfies one of the ruling of the Quran about the inheritance, it contradicts the other.

Despite all these incongruencies and errors the real problem with these laws is not the fact that they do not add up. The problem is in the inherent injustice that they embody. A fair minded person cannot avoid but to question, why daughters should receive half of what the sons receive? Why sisters receive less than brothers? And why a widower is entitled to double the share than a widow? Why the Quran states “to the male, a portion equal to that of two females”? (4:11). Think of a man with four wives. All the wives have to share the ¼ of his wealth, if he has no children and 1/8 if he has. In the first case each wife will receive 1/16 of the inheritance and in the second case 1/32. How a woman who may not be young enough to remarry can survive with such meager share in a male dominated society as Islamic countries? On the other hand a man who loses all his four wives will inherit half to ¼ of every wife’s wealth. Isn’t this the formula to enrich the men and impoverish the women? It is easier to forget the mathematical errors of the Quran than forgive its injustice.

The verse (4:175) claims that “Thus doth Allah make clear to you (His law), lest ye err. And Allah hath knowledge of all things.” As we saw, the above laws are anything but clear. They do not add up, the portions are not clearly defined, and the shares are distributed unfairly. It is up to Muslims to decide whether Allah, does not have the “knowledge of all things”, cannot add simple fractions, is confused and unfair or that the Quran is mistaken, and Muhammad was not a prophet of God. It is one or the other. You decide.

I am sorry to report that because of the irrelevant and egregious name-calling inspired by my brilliant work, I will have to hold all comments for approval. This will, in fact, slow things down to the tune of once or twice a week (I am a doctor with three thriving practices).

Consider this a time-out for now. I hope I will not have to do any grounding (removal of any comments alltogether) but I would definitely do it. We are here to learn from one another and have a civilized discussion, not beat one another to a bloody pulp.

Please always remember that you are an ambassador of your religion, and when you do something wrong, there are dozens of people waiting to pounce on you and go on about how your whole religion is invalid because you did this one sin.

Also, remember that there are so many people who call themselves Christians, Moslems, Jews, Pagans, etc.–who don’t live it, who don’t deserve to call themselves these things.

If you are a Moslem, you should not drink, smoke, be alone with a non-related male (if female), have any non-Moslem friends, have slaves, and you SHOULD be vigilant for people to convert, slaying the infidels where ye find them.

Christians, do not call yourself that unless you believe Jesus is the only way, truth and life, unless you do not have sex outside of marriage, get drunk, take drugs, use profanity, unless you refrain from anger, bitterness, malice, etc.

Of course we Christians are not perfect, but we should view these things as wrong and make an effort to keep away from them. (I thank God every day that I don’t have to kill people in order to be devout..)

Anyway, ‘Byez, Guyz’ and I hope you will behave from now on. Oh, and if I like your comment except for one mean or hateful part, then I will have to edit the comment, take out the bad part, and I might have to replace it with a pat on the back to me, so have a care.

(It seems the first time did not post, I did not want this to go unposted, hence the re-post. Sorry for inconvenience, but it won’t hurt you to read it twice!! JAS MD)

This is to those people who are intent on calling each other ‘dumb’ (and other variants thereof) for being either Christian or Muslim. So you will know, I have NOT READ any of the comments, but some mean words caught my eye and since I own this site, I have to make sure everyone is respectful about voicing their opinion.

Muslims, don’t you know that when you patronizingly call us infidels and idiots in the name of your ‘religion,’ you just prove how hateful Islam really is?

And Christians, shouldn’t you behave in love and avoid meanness and cruelty? Moslems are the victims here. They are the victims of a perverted pervert who spun a dream that they are only happy to follow because it legitimizes their base desires of hate, violence and sex. Imagine a puppy that vomited on the floor because he just had a vaccine. Would you get mad and yell at him for the indiscretion, or would you gather him up in your arms and hug him, trying to help him (feel better in this case) from his problems? Moslems are like children who were raised by wolves. They are hungry for blood because that’s all they’ve ever known, but underneath lies a heart and intellect that can be appealed to… and prayed for. I would gladly lay down my life (an imperfect, unholy and unworthy sacrifice, I know) in order to make these people see reason. And while I might sometimes bristle at their tone, I constantly try to remind myself that I am dealing with people who are infected with rabies. Jesus is the Great Vetrinarian who can counteract all of the poison and disease with his True and Perfect Love.

I ask all of you fellow believers out there to join with me in prayer right now, both for the salvation of our Moslem bretheren, as well as our own kindness and tolerance in the face of the cancer/disease that is ISLAM.

LOVE TO EACH OF YOU,
Salib

I was reading over the comments, which I don’t usually have the luxury to do, and came across this comment battle in the post for
Black Converts to Islam are a Joke to the Arab Moslems post from last year, and thought you might be interested in checking it out.

Let it be known that Salib doesn’t necessarily agree with any or all of it, just putting it in front of those who are interested in reading it.

Let it also be known that converts can sometimes be tighter-clinging or more fanatical than people who were brought up with this cult. (To prove to others–and themselves–how “righteous” they are.)

Also, people who spent much of their cognizant life (maybe over 14 or something) in a non-Islamic country (like the US) sometimes feel “Ma2to3een men el shagara” (like a branch torn from the tree) and either don’t know the worse aspects of this perverse “religion”, or else sometimes they can even feel that getting closer to Islam is a way of getting closer to their cultural roots. I have even seen Egyptian Protestants raised in America (rather than Egypt) converting to Coptic Orthodoxy so as to feel closer to their heritage that wasn’t stripped away from when the white man came over to convert the little Egyptians.

I guess we always want what we don’t have, eh?

Peace.

I am a white male myself who converted 2 islam and all my arab friends tell me not 2 practice it poorly like the blacks do…damn i wasnt even expectin that comment but it happened and in ways it is true. Most blacks do not practice it right and still act like animals in public and still wear their stupid fitted hats and listen to music that would never be allowed in a islamic society. Most of them convert because they think “Jesus was a white man who had slaves” well since i had converted 2 islam i found out that muhammed had black slaves and said that they were best used as slaves and were automatically satanic. Strange how most of the arabs I know look down upon blacks and i just happened 2 agree with them. For the ones with jobs and do good and play a decent role in society without acting like animals, i dont mind but for ones who sit on their ass all day and glorify tony montana (scarface) need 2 get the fuck out. For the ones who posted above saying theres no prejudice among arab muslims and black muslims is completely lying to themselves, yea maybe some dont feel that way and i never mentioned that ALL arab muslims feel that wa towards blacks but ive met quite a few dedicated arab muslims(young & old) who would be quick to tell you black is bad. Just read about the Darfur crisis going on rite now as we speak, janjawid is an arab militia backed by Osama Bin Laden to enslave the blacks and kill the useless. And what does Osama Bin Laden do? He follows the Quran. so figure it out. stop bein in denial and just face the fact that racism is just not black/white like you thought. To white people readin this post, realize muslims r not the enemy, just radical islam, there is a difference.. I advise 2 stop any hate towards innocent arabs, indians and anyone else who just wants a better life here plz, they r not the ones trashing up this country, realize who is really doin it and creatin music that may be a threat to our kids and family who glorify it. This is not directed 2 all blacks but 2 a good percentage who just complain about this n that, if u dont like it then jus leave. stop tearin this country apart..

To Jaz or whatever your name is. You sound like the biggest idiot that I’ve ever heard of in my life. I’m arab! Many arabs who are muslim like myself have utmost respect for muslims of african american decent. My father has traveled all across the world including many muslim countries and he told me the best muslims he ever seen in his entire life was muslims of african american decent! Who represents Islam in the US??? African American Muslims! End of Story! I’m proud to be Muslim! I’m arab, but I’m Muslim first. I don’t know what kind of Muslim you are bringing White racism into islam and saying that muslim arabs taught you that African Americans practice false Islam. I don’t believe you! And if any ignorant Muslim Arab told you this, he or she is shaitan! Just like when my fellow Arab Sunni/Shia fight amongst each other! Or kill innocent people. They’re Shaitan! You’re also shaitan! You are preaching to Non Muslims to turn them against Muslims of African American decent. Don’t say that you’re Muslim. You’re are the biggest Kufr!!!! I don’t know what your intentions are with Islam, but you’re not a Muslim! And you want to speak of Osama, he’s not Muslim!!! He’s the biggest Kufr!!!! African American Muslims make me proud to be Muslim!!!

Great article!! I Wish I had thought to write it, but upon reading it, I am glad Dr. Mohammed wrote this article, for it seems that his life’s work has been this. God bless him!!
