“Reliance of the Traveller” on Fox News

This has got to be a first for Fox News: a copy of Reliance of the Traveller is shown and discussed on the air during an appearance by Ryan Mauro:

For readers who may be relatively new to the Counterjihad: the book shown in this video is ’Umdat al-salik wa ’uddat al-nasik, or The reliance of the traveller and tools of the worshipper. It is commonly referred to as Reliance of the Traveller when cited in English.

The Revised Edition (published 1991, revised 1994) is subtitled “The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law ’Umdat al-Salik by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (d. 769/1368) in Arabic with Facing English Text, Commentary, and Appendices”, and was edited and translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller. The publisher is listed as amana publications in Beltsville, Maryland.

Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law

This an authoritative source on Sunni Islamic law, because it is certified as such by Al-Azhar University in Cairo. In it you can find the most notorious elements of sharia (death for apostasy and blasphemy, the second-class status of women, the lack of punishment for the killing of kuffar, etc.) backed up by verses of the Koran and hadith.

  1. It may be a start but that’s about all that can be staid. The interviewer asked no questions about what the book contains; as the guest intimated, this book is the muslim handbook, particularly for those muslims who live amongst non-muslims. I think it was a lost opportunity to educate non-muslims about what we are up against.

    • Mentioning the name of the book and showing it on TV is still a big improvement over the usual fuzzy nonsense.

      Perhaps the book will keep getting brought into these TV interviews. Then just maybe people will start to figure out what makes someone a jihadist, and how many there actually are.
