Nomenclature of Deception by Ibn Iftikhâr

Brother Abû Yûnus I’jâz ibn Iftikhâr of Utah had sent out an email last night on one of the mailing lists I’m a member of containing links to a nice article he had written. I had first seen this article on brother Jalal Abualrub’s site and is now also available on CalltoIslam’s site (PDF). The article is from the appendicies from a book he compiled titled Victory is for Islâm: Glad Tidings for Muslims, which is printed and avaible. Those who want the original article from the book can download it from this link (PDF, right click & save as). From the article:

There has been a long trend in the media circles, both print and broadcast, on using specific terminologies to vilify and depreciate Islām and Muslims and disseminate their false propaganda globally; it is geared more so towards Islām, simply because the neo-cons and media spinners realize that Islām is more of a threat than any Muslim towards their self-gratifying, opportunistic agendas for world domination. The terms I am alluding to are: “radical Islam”, “militant Islam”, “Islamic men”, “puritanical brand of Islam”, “Wahhabism,” “ultra-conservative view of Islam” “Islamic militants,” “violent jihad,” etcetera.

This form of deception is not limited to employing the oft-repeated, oft-quoted term “fundamentalism/fundamentalist” anymore (e.g., Muslim fundamentalist, etc.). Now, we have a vast myriad of catchwords and catchphrases utilized by the [pro-Zion, Illuminati-controlled] mainstream media as well as self-appointed “experts” on Islām andِ terrorism who write books not in order to educate people but in order to mar the image of Islām and instill enmity and animosity in the minds of the readers and thereby dissuade people from being tolerant towards it, let alone approaching it with an open-mind or embracing it. The growth and proliferation of such literature has increased exponentially to such a level that I have resolved to amalgamate and conglomerate these highly-charged anti-Islāmic, anti-Muslim terms under the blanket phrase “nomenclature of deception.”

About Rasheed Gonzales
My name is Rasheed Gonzales. I’m a Muslim convert of Filipino descent.

  2. Wa ‘alaikum as-salâm wa rahmatullah,

    Looking at the link you gave, it looks like it’s the same brother, but I’m not fully certain. I’ll try contacting the brother from the email address he’s used on the mailing list I got the article from to ask him, Allah willing. I’ll get back to you if he responds.

    Here is a working link: http://islamiclectures.us/files/Nomenclature%20of%20Deception.pdf

  4. May Allah reward and bless you, brother Ejaz. Link to the article has been updated in the main article (the last one, not the one to CTI’s or Jalal’s sites).

  5. Ejaz says:

    wa iyyakum akhee. How have you been? Please help me spread my site to the masses: http://www.islamiclectures.us

  6. Ejaz says:

    As salaamu alaykum,

    For some reason, my comments are not going through

  7. Ejaz says:

    Akhee, please share my website so that others can benefit: http://www.islamiclectures.us. And jazakallahu khayran for your kind words.

  8. For some reason, my comments are not going through

    Your two posts got caught by the spam filter for some reason.

  9. Abu Yunus says:

    As salamu alaykum akhee. Can you remove the following (Note that the link is only being provided for the article itself, and that brother I’jaz does not endorse the site it’s found on in any way), since this does not apply any more due to the change of the hyperlink.

  10. Wa ‘alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah. Done.

  11. Abû Mûsâ Al-Ḥabashî says:

    Checking out Ejaz’s link, I couldn’t help but feel a little nostalgic.
