A mother of five children faces death for an act of kindness in offering a Muslim co-worker a drink of water. Her mistake? She drank from it first. In most cultures, that would not be a problem, but for Muslims quick to condemn others, it’s guilty of death for blasphemy, but drinking first might show that the water has no poison, etc.

Blasphemy is defined as speaking against God, so how is offering water to a friend considered worthy of death? How could a young mother of five be expected to know what would oddly be considered a hostile act and worthy of death?

This case makes Allah look bad. Who can be sure that Allah would require death for an act of kindness? Is Allah so helpless that he can’t defend himself? And if we can’t be sure what Allah would do, shouldn’t we give the benefit of the doubt to the young mother of five?

When the Great Teacher who divided BC from AD was faced with a women who could be stoned, He said, “Let him without guilt cast the first stone…and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you…”

Where is the law of kindness and the Golden Rule that says, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

It seems a devil’s religion to interpret an act of kindness as worthy of death. Any judge worthy of the title should understand that we all shall one day answer for our deeds. It would then be better to have offered a drink of water and been wrongly sentenced to death, than to do the sentencing, because the Judge in that day will say, “In as much as you have done it to the least of these, you did it to Me.” Matt 25

Militant Muslims might be interested to see how the Bible foretells the end of Middle East conflict--and though the prophecy was 2500 years ago, it’s nearly complete-- https://islamusinprophecy.wordpress.com/2015/03/16/4/
