Interfaith And The Medina Treaty


Please comment on the following Jumuah talk by reverend Abraham Bham:


Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made a pact where he called all the people of Medina, the different tribes and religions and told them we are going to live together,

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made a pact which had 47 clauses which related to how the muslims are going to relate with non-muslims… We are supposed to people to the soultions to how to live together but we are fighting amongst ourselves..

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) promoted a common citizenship for people living in Medina ,All will sit together regardless of religion..

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made a clause where all will defend medina together, if anyone is killed then all will help the family of deceased,

Another clause all religions are free to practice their customs and ceremony’s, in our religion there is great emphasis on living amicably with other religions..

Interfaith means people of different faith, intrafaith means people of different faiths, Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran – “ Muslims should be good to others” but the situation is sometimes we are good to others and hatefull to our own, when Allah Ta’aala says “we are supposed to be loving and caring towards one another.. Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made brotherhood between people of different religions.”

(End of the Cross-Worshipper’s talk)


The Cross-Worshipper’s talk is bunkum kufr. It is bereft of not only Shar’i substance, but also displays his gross jahaalat and deception.

In the treaty between Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the several tribes of kuffaar and mushrikeen there is not the remotest reference to interfaith. There is not a semblance of toleration of kufr and compromise with any belief and tenet of Islam. It was a political treaty contracted at a time when the population was predominantly kuffaar – a few hundred Muslims against about 10,000 kuffaar (Yahood, Nasaara and Mushrikeen). The Medina Treaty was enacted in the first year of Hijrat. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had just arrived in Medina. He was not the king or ruler of Medina as yet.

The threat of the Mushrik Quraish of Makkah was heavily overhanging the nascent Islamic Movement. An attack by the Quraish on Medina to eliminate this fledgling Islamic Movement was a reality and a constant fear of the Muslims. Therefore, there was the imminent need to fortify the city against such an attack, hence the Medina Treaty. But, despite the fact that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was not the ruler of Medina, by the decree of Allah Azza Wa Jal, he managed to gain the co-operation of all the kuffaar tribes who became signatories to this Treaty.

But this Treaty does not proffer the slightest scope for the interfaith kufr which the miserable Cross-Worshipping reverend abortively peddles.

Abortively struggling to eke out support for his interfaith kufr, Reverend Abraham Bham of the Cross says:

 “Another clause, all religions are free to practices their customs and ceremonies.”

Firstly, no one in the current context of life where Muslims live alongside the kuffaar in non-Muslim countries, has ever even suggested or even dreamt that the kuffaar should be prevented from adherence to their religions and customs.

Secondly, those who are vehemently and vigorously opposed to interfaith kufr had never suggested that Muslims in non-Muslim countries or even in Muslim lands should become hostile towards the kuffaar. Thus, the idea which the lying, deceiving Cross-Worshipper is peddling is a massive falsehood designed to entrap ignorant an unwary Muslims into shaitaan’s snare of interfaith.

Thirdly, interfaith means compromise with baatil – with kufr. It means abolition of Da’wat and Tableegh. It means respect and honour for the kufr beliefs and kufr practices of the kuffaar. It teaches toleration and even participation in acts of kufr such as worshipping the Hindu fire-deity, i.e. the holy fire, around which wedding couples should circumambulate chanting the praises of the fire-god of the Hindu mushrikeen; burying atheists and performing ‘janazah salaat’ for them; going to their churches and temples and praying under crosses of kufr and shirk; standing and sitting with respect whilst the kuffaar engage in their incantations and prayers of kufr. Interfaith means toleration of kufr to the degree of diluting Imaan and making nonsense of the uncompromising stance of Islamic Tauheed. Interfaith means that all religions and ideologies are on par and that no religion is the absolute truth.

Fourthly, the opponents of this brand of interfaith kufr, do not advocate hostility towards non-Muslims. They are averse to muwaalaat (bosom friendship) which is prohibited by the Qur’aan and Sunnah. Kufr interfaith leads to haraam muwaalaat, hence the Qur’aan Majeed in many Aayaat explicitly and emphatically prohibits such friendship. Muwaalaat with the kuffaar closes the avenue of Da’wat and Tableegh, and worse, it dilutes the Imaani aversion for the acceptance the fisq, fujoor and kufr of the kuffaar. Assimilation with the kuffaar desensitizes Imaani inhibition to kufr and in its wake kufr becomes insignificant and even acceptable.

The ultimate consequence of this wretched muwaalaat can be conspiculously observed in the dalliances which the Cross-Worshipping reverend has with the kuffaar of all hues. He dare not open is mouth against any kufr and shirki practice and belief of his bosom kuffaar friends.
