Which Muslim Prayers Should You Memorize When Trapped by Muslim Terrorists

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

I assumed that the Kenya Jihadists were asking for the Shahada, the Muslim confession of faith. So did some of the hostages.

But survivors were telling horror stories. Among them was Dorcas Mwangi of Athens, Ga.

“It was crazy, because everyone was running,” Mwangi said. “People’s faces were full of shock and horror. There’s screaming.”

Mwangi hid behind boxes, and said terrorists were shooting hostages who could not recite a Muslim prayer. Her brother texted her crucial information.

“My brother sent me the Muslim Shahad prayer to memorize,” she said.

Mwangi was never spotted and made it out.

That’s probably lucky. Because the Muslim terrorists apparently came expecting that and were ready with a broader Koranic trivia quiz.

Joshua Hakim, recounted the events of the horrific attack, saying how the Indian was killed.

“Then an Indian man came forward and they said, ‘What is the name of Muhammad’s mother?’ When he couldn’t answer they just shot him,” said Hakim who owes his survival to his last name which sounds like that of a Muslim.

The attackers were reportedly of Somali origin and speaking in Swahili. They called out Muslims to identify themselves and leave.

When Joshua’s turn came, he managed to hide his first Christian name by putting his thumb on the ID, exposing just the Muslim sounding name and escaped the terrorists.

The mother of the little monster was Aminah. It’s a big deal to Muslims because of the meaning of her name. That’s the sort of thing that Muslims and scholars of Islam know, but that most people don’t.

There was also a Koran verse test.

Other survivors told reporters that those who identified themselves as Muslims were ordered to recite a verse from the Koran, or to name the Prophet Mohammed’s mother. Those who could do so were allowed to go; those who failed the test were killed.

This may have involved reciting the opening verse of the Koran. But that’s just a guess. The point is that everything that the average Muslim knows really isn’t worth memorizing unless you’re operating in areas where this could happen to you. If you’re touring Syria, by all means pack it in. Otherwise, learn your own religion.

It may serve you better.

    If asked … just start praying the Our Father and know that the next hand to grab yours will be His ,,, God Bless the souls of the departed Christians and may their Guardian Angels whisk them into the arms of God. Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

  • DogmaelJones1

    What I’d say, because I’m white and obviously not a Muslim and I’d shot anyway: “Can you demonstrate how you say prayers, so I can kick your ass? I’ve been wanting to do that for a very long time.” Or, “Mohammad was a bestial, raping, illiterate killer with grave self-esteem problems. And on Arabian drugs. What was in those dates, anyway?”

      If you don’t believe and confess Jesus as the only SON of GOD and believe in HIM for the forgiveness of your sins you will be condemned to eternal darkness I hell. (John 3:16-16)

    • glpage

      We’re all going to die someday. That’s the way it works. The most important thing to learn about Islam is that it is intolerant to non-believers and will kill them if they don’t pay jizya.

      • defcon 4

        I wonder if the muslimes who committed the terrorism in the mall would’ve accepted jizya? Something tells me they wouldn’t have.

    • A santos

      w/ your nick it says all about islam… nothing to bother read a piece of garbage

  • Softly Bob

    Study Islam as much as possible but don’t bother to lean names or verses off by heart. You’ll just mess your head up and keep wondering if there’s something that you’ve forgotten. That’s just a coward’s approach and lets them know that they are winning.

    Instead,make them learn our ways. Force them to memorize a few Bible verses or some such thing. If you a capture a Muslim and he hasn’t learned your verses tell him that he will be killed, soaked in pig’s blood and left to rot. Prevent him from reaching Allah’s paradise. Let him know that if he dies, Hell is his destination. Don’t give in to these maggots. Don’t let them intimidate you – intimidate them instead!

    Prayer response:
    Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
    Blessed are you among women,
    and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, mother of God,
    pray for us sinners, now,
    and at the hour of our death.
    Amen

    • ChildoftheMostHighGod

      But Mary was just a human being who is dead now, she cannot hear your prayers sorry.. Pray to God.

      • southwood

        Yes but according to Roman “catholics” (they call themselves catholic but they do not belong to the true catholic or universal church) Mary can hear a million prayers at any one time. That means she must be omnipresent, which, er, only God is. Or a million angels are present wherever prayers to her are made and they carry the prayers back to her. A bit of a logistics nightmare ? Well, how about God hears them, then He passes them to Mary who, of course, needs God to answer them, so she passes them back to God ! Yet Romanists believe in this absurdity.

        • Dan Mesa/AZ

          A bit of a shallow view of heaven you got there

          • southwood

            No, but you have a perverted view of heaven, a totally unscriptural view, an heretical view too.

      • Dan Mesa/AZ

        I’m assuming you are a Christian, if so, then it would be safe to assume you believe there is a heaven. Mary is not dead, she is in heaven, with Jesus Christ, her son. Of course she can hear our prayers, she hears them, prays for us just as anyone prays for you or that you pray for. Would you not agree that having Jesus’ mother, who is in heaven, pray for us can only make our prayers stronger and more heartfelt? To put it bluntly…she’s got skin in the game…she’s in heaven. Let us remember she was always there for her Divine Son, from the blessed beginning of His life on earth to its bitter end when she stood at the foot of His cross at the Crucifixion, when he gave up His life for us. When we pray to Mary we are also praying through Mary, asking her to intercede with God for us on our behalf.

        Also, Muslims hold Mary in very high regard. If I’m being asked to convert to Islam or face death, I’m certainly not going to convert….can’t think of a better way to spend my last few moments on earth before being beheaded than to invoke Mary’s name, ask her to pray for me, a sinner, so that I may be worthy to enter into the kingdom of God. HE hears that.

        • southwood

          So, er, Mary is divine then ? A godess, if you will ? Sorry, but Mary is human just like the rest of mankind. Worshipping or praying to her is just blasphemy.

          • Dan Mesa/AZ

            Nope, not ‘divine’ nor a goddess. You all can drop the worshipping part…Catholics do not w-o-r-s-h-I-p Mary, never have, never will. Praying to her? Absolutely! Mary, who is the Mother of Jesus Christ, is very much alive in heaven.

            I’m guessing at some point in your life, someone may have prayed for you, a family member, or even a friend. That is beautiful if so… I wouldn’t consider that blasphemous….do you?

          • southwood

            Dan, please explain how Mary can hear a million prayers to her at one time ? Explain that first of all.

          • Dan Mesa/AZ

            I’m a fairly recent convert, but I’m gonna take a stab at this. Revelation 5 & 8 are great points to take in. Those in Heaven (i.e. the Saints) are outside of time, there is no past or
            present by their perception–only one great present. We can’t understand
            why this is because we are mortal beings and bound by the limits of time.
            We can’t possibly understand all that is in heaven, time and space in heaven are in a realm that we can’t comprehend here on earth.

            Mary, the saints, those in heaven are not believed to be omniscient as God is, however we
            believe it is by God’s will that the saints be allowed to hear our prayers. Refer to Revelation 5:8 and 8:3

          • southwood

            Revelation is possibly the hardest book in the bible to fathom. So much symbolism is used. Some commentaries say the prayers are being offered on behalf of the saints (ordinary believers) by the church. Perhaps the saints can hear prayers but a million at one time, no way ! You Romanists have idols of “Mary” too. That is forbidden. Some of you kneel and pray before them. In fact John Paul II did that. How does this differ from pagan idolatry.

          • Charles Rowin

            you are ascribing to the saints a sense of hearing. you may like to think of it more as a sense of feel. the ability to feel or absorb the prayers of millions.

          • David A Kitchens

            Where to even begin? First the dead are asleep and cannot hear anyone. 2nd only God hears prayer, and not someone who has been dead for ages. 3rd praying to the dead is kin to divination, which is heretical.

          • Charles Rowin

            why wouldnt she be divine? she is somebodys mother after all.

    Where is the Muslim who refused to answer because ‘killing innocents’ is in violation of Islam? Where is such a creature? If these were the Christian terrorists the PC crowd tells us do or could as easily exist, there would be eight or ten such people in this crowd.

    • southwood

      Those were the “moderate” Muslims. They “moderately” refused to be involved in the slaughter and left that to the “extremists”.

    • J Simson

      Quran 3:151

      We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.

      • Bat Sheva

        Excuse me!

        So if we don’t believe what we associate with Allah, he will smite us, although, he did not authorise such association?

        Its like saying, I did not authorise this and therefore its not associated with me, but you must believe in it anyway, or else.

    Oh, I can just see it now. An islamic style Jeopardy game show, where the prize is your life. For your life:
    Q: How did allah refer to the Jews?
    A: as apes and swine

    Oops, bang, bang. You forgot to phrase your answer as a question.

    • J Simson

      According to Islam Jews and Christian are pigs and apes

      Quran 5:60-64 Then say: “Should I inform you [People of the Book] of those, who will have even worse recompense from Allah than the transgressors? They are those whom Allah has cursed; who have been under His wrath; some of whom were turned into APES and SWINE; who worshipped taghut [the devil or idols]; those are the people who are in a far worse plight and who have turned farthest away from the Right Way.” (Maududi)

      • Bat Sheva

        Does it literally say “Jew and Christians”? or just “Those” ? If its the latter, what makes them think its about Jews and Christians? or is it so because they are taught that?

        • Charles Rowin

          it talks of idolaters. those who worship idols. its taken from the old testament. so yes it is that they are taught that it refers to jews even though jews dont worship idols.

        Huff-Po have started the victim mode now -

        British Muslims are worried about reprisal attacks in the wake of the Nairobi terror attacks, with a spike in the online reporting of Islamophobic abuse.

        Tell MAMA, which monitors reports of anti-Muslim attacks and abuse online, said they were seeing a upsurge in reporting.

        Around seven to 11 anti-Muslim attacks per day since Saturday are being reported online, the organisation said, attacks that are specifically referencing the Nairobi terror attacks on the Westgate Shopping Mall, where more than 60 people were massacred.

    • paendragon

      Why haven’t they praised the terror leader (allegedly the white British widow of one of the 7/7 terrorists) as a “strong independent woman” yet?

  • Lee

    How terrible that white Western Muslims like Samantha Lewthwaite (“the White Widow”) go to less-privileged black countries like Kenya to execute black families while they’re just out doing some shopping.

    The Islamofascist collaborators who use the term “racism” to divert criticism of the murderous cult of Islam whenever its indoctrination causes mass-murders are now silent. Until they think of another excuse or diversion for their preferred cult of murder…

    I have purposefully made a distinction between “radical Islamists” with the intention of painting them with a different brush than the majority of Muslims who do not actively participate in these types of religious genocides. For years, I have waited for “moderates” to come out and unequivocally condemn the actions of their Muslim terrorist kindred–and for years, I have been disappointed in the lack of condemnation from the so-called “moderates.” The primary apologists are the infidels (a nice word for “non-believers”) who excuse Islam as a whole and label these types of events as the exceptions to the writings of their (false) prophet. Barack Hussein Obama is one of the most egregious defenders of Islam. So is the British Prime Minister. I have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as a “moderate” Muslim due to the total lack of outcry against the “radicals.”

    The world needs to wake up. It is time to call it like it is based upon the voluminous piles of evidence that we have: One of the core tenets of Islam is convert or be murdered. Those are the facts.

    • J Simson

      Quran 8:12

      When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

        For a while 7 years ago there were a lot of beheadings committed by muslimes against the unbeliever, but now it seems like muslimes don’t go in for that anymore. Maybe it’s just too much trouble to saw someone’s head off, or maybe too bloody even for their tastes.

        • Charles Rowin

          oh no they havent stopped that practice and do it in public still.

  • J Simson

    A time honored Muslim tradition. Raping women of infidel:

    Sahih Muslim 8:3432 (Hadith)

    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported that at the Battle of Hunain Allah’s Messenger sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah’s Messenger seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that:” And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (Quran 4:24)” (i. e. they were lawful for them when their ‘Idda period came to an end).

  • Silver Gonzales

    These were the moderate Muslims that Daniel Pipes has been praising for so many years.

    First they ask you to recite the Shahada then they shoot you and your children.

    The extremists are the ones who shoot you and your children then demand that you recite Shahada. Since your answer will not deciferable, in their minds they were justified killing you since your answer was not delivered in the proper tone.

    Coming to a mall near you. Thanks Imam Bush, Thanks Imam Obama. May Alla praise you forever.
