Muhammad in the Quran, Vol. 3: Chapter 63



 

PERSEVERE - AN EXPRESSION NON-MUSLIMS SHOULD NEVER FORGET

One of the central words which Muhammad impressed and impressed on Muslims, is "persevere". Persevere - patiently persevere - and sooner or later your opponent or enemy tires, and you have won. Very often this claim proves correct - it was not for nothing Muhammad used it frequently.

When dealing with or opposing Muslims or Islam NEVER forget this fact. Persevere at least for as long as your Muslim opposite part does. If not you lose.

001 2/153b: “Seek help with patient Perseverance and Prayer, for Allah is with those who patiently persevere.” Keep struggling and the enemy gives in - non-Muslims should never forget that this is hammered into all Muslims - - - and too often correct, especially when fighting democracies, as democracies have difficulties keeping on struggling for a long time if they are not forced to - there always are fractions who want the struggle or fighting to be terminated.

002 2/153c: "- - - Allah is with those who patiently persevere". See 2/253b just above.

003 2/155c: "- - - patiently persevere - - -". A word and an expression the Quran imprints and imprints and imprints on Muslims: Persevere - and in the end the enemy grows tired and you win. A WORD NON-MUSLIMS SHOULD NEVER FORGET.

004 2/249e: “How oft, by Allah’s will, hath a small force vanquished a big one? Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere.” May be not exactly an incitement, but quite a pep-talk. And NB: It is used even today - and with an effect. The words are not from the Bible, though.

005 2/249f: “How oft, by Allah’s will, hath a small force vanquished a big one? Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere.” This contradicts the Bible. According to the Bible the Jews had no "small force". They had their full army on a hill, facing the Philistine army on a neighboring hill with a valley in between (1. Sam. 17/3). This situation remained for many (40) days (1. Sam. 17/1) before the youth David happened to be sent with food to his 3 brothers in Saul's army (1. Sam. 17/17-18) and there killed the giant Goliath, who had been calling on the Jews for a duel man-to-man to decide the war (in the old times it did happen that one or a few from each army were elected to fight it out as proxies for the whole armies - much less bloodshed). A bit different from the story in the Quran.

Also it is very likely Muhammad has mixed Saul's/Talut's war with Gideon's - no god had done that.

006 2/249g: "- - - persevere ". A word non-Muslims should never forget is imprinted and imprinted on Muslims - and it works, especially as democracies are weak when it comes to prolonged managements (there always are shortsighted persons who want an end to struggling).

007 3/125c: "- - - if you (Muslims*) remain firm - - -". Time and again and again the Quran tells that if the Muslims just persevere, the "enemy" grows tired in the end and the Muslims win. Far too often this has proved correct, a fact all non-Muslims growing tired should remember. This especially the democracies, as they have problems when a fight lasts for a long time - there always are many voices wanting out of the struggle, as they see the short-time gain but not the long-time loss possible.

008 3/142d: "- - - steadfast - - -". A word with a similar meaning like "patiently persevere" - an expression non-Muslims should never forget is impressed and impressed on Islam's followers by the Quran: Keep going, and sooner or later your enemy tires and give in, and you win. It has proved true too often.

009 3/186ca: “But if ye persevere patiently - - - then that will be a determining factor in all affairs”. Keep fighting and you will win. Non-Muslims should never forget this expression.

010 3/200b: “Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper”. If George Bush had read this, he had listened to his generals and used more troops - for once USA used too few troops in an invasion when they invaded Iraq. Non-Muslims also should be aware that the Quran imprints and imprints and imprints that if you persevere, the opponent grows tired and gives in. Too often this is correct.

###011 8/46f: "- - - Allah is with those (Muslims*) who patiently persevere - - -". Well, at least it is very clear that this stratagem works, and especially against democracies, as one of the weak sides of democracies is that all too often fractions - often big fractions - do not like to fight, and want to evade fighting, or if it starts they want to stop it too early.

012 8/66c: “- - - for Allah is with those who patiently persevere.” This is a pep talk all non-Muslims should forever remember - fanatic Muslim warriors never give in and never stop. And also: How many soldiers in the future did Spain kill by pulling out their few men from the East some time ago, and proving to Muslims just these words which are repeated and repeated in the Quran? - a proof that now may be strengthened by Australia pulling out, and by USA pulling out too early.

But a good and efficient pep-talk for Muslim warriors? Yes.

013 11/49e: “So persevere patiently: for the End is for those who are righteous.” The Muslims will win in the end if they keep fighting.

014 11/115a: "- - - be steadfast in patience." Something the entire world should know and remember: The Quran impresses and impresses and impresses "patient perseverance": Persevere and sooner or later the "enemy" tires and you have won, whereas the "enemy" must retreat or even accept you as his Master(s) - some future for non-Muslims!! We have visited most Muslim areas except south of Sahara, and there are few, if any, place we would like to live for a long time. A possible - possible - exception is Sabah on Borneo.

015 13/22a: "- - - patiently persevere - - -". This is an expression the world - and American presidents - should never forget: The Quran repeats and repeats and repeats: If you stay on and persevere, in the end you always win, because the "enemy" grows tired and gives in - retreats or even accepts you as his/their lord.

016 13/24a: "- - - persevered - - -". This word is impressed and impressed and impressed on Muslims: Persevere and sooner or later the "enemy" tires and you win. A fact and a word no non-Muslim should ever forget.

017 16/42b: "- - - those who persevere in patience, and put their trust in Allah". = Muslims.

018 16/42c: "- - - persevere in patience - - -". Words non-Muslims should never forget: The Quran again and again and again tells that if Muslims only persevere, the opponents sooner or later tires and have lost. The book too often has been right, because democracy is weak on this point; in conflicts too many are not willing to pay the price for victory if it takes time and effort - not unless they have the back against the wall.

019 16/96f: "- - - patiently persevere - - -". An expression that is often stressed in the Quran, and which non-Muslims NEVER should forget is often stressed in the Quran and the war religion of Islam.

020 16/110a: “But verily thy Lord - to those who leave their homes after trials and persecutions - and thereafter strive for the Faith and patiently persevere - thy Lord, after all this is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Comments; see 22/78. We may add that this one is written shortly before the Muslims had to flee from Mecca - perhaps even after the first ones had fled to East Africa (Ethiopia). The Muslims are told that Allah will be good to the ones who have to flee for Allah. Good for moral. But it definitely is no proved verity/truth.

021 16/110e: "- - - patiently persevere - - -". An expression used time and again and again in the Quran: Persevere and sooner or later the "enemy" tires and you have won. The Quran so often has been right on this, that no non-Muslim should ever forget this, or the fact that Islam is a war religion (just read the surahs from Medina if you do not believe this fact).

022 28/54c: "- - - persevere - - -". This is a word non-Muslims should never forget is impressed and impressed on Muslims: Persevere, and the "enemy" tires and gives in - and you have won. Too often it has proved correct.

027 31/31g: "- - - constantly persevere - - -". An expression non-Muslims should NEVER forget is imprinted, imprinted, imprinted on Muslims - persevere, and in the end you win, if for no other reason then because the "enemy" grows tired and gives in. It has been correct too many times.
