The Enemy

In the Name of Allah,

the Compassionate, the Merciful

Jihad in the Koran60:1 O believers, do not take My enemy and your enemy for supporters, showing them friendship, when they have disbelieved what has come to you for the Truth. They expel the Messenger and expel you because you have believed in Allah, your Lord. If you have gone out to struggle in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure secretly showing them friendship, while I know very well what you conceal and what you reveal. He who does that among you has surely strayed from the Right Path.

60:2 If they come upon you, they will be enemies of yours and will stretch out their hands and tongues against you with malice, and they wish that you would disbelieve.

Generations long gone and new generations of sceptics who continue to reject God’s Revelations and would rather He kept them to Himself are many; for them, the Compassionate harbours a singular animosity.

The list God established of those you must hate (to the death, in many instances) is considered as valid today, except for perhaps The Antagonizers, as when Muhammad was in charge of day-to-day combat operations. The focus of the hatred and violence Allah intended for the Prophet’s contemporaries has been refocused on future generations.
