Taqiyya

March 20, 2011

Taqiyya is an Arabic word that refers to the practice of concealing from your enemy what is truly in your heart. [1] Muhammad used taqiyya to defeat non-Muslim tribes during the Battle of the Trench in 627 AD, and he authorized its use in connection with the murder of a poet he didn’t like by the name of Kab bin al-Ashruf. According to Islamic scripture, Allah himself is considered to be the “best deceiver” (Koran 3:54), and the Koran specifically approves of deception as a way to conquer unbelievers whenever Islamic military power cannot achieve victory through open warfare (verses 3:28, 2:173; 2:185; 4:29; 22:78; 40:28).
