The messenger said (on the Day of Judgement), “My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran.” [25:30]
PROPHET MUHAMMAD FORBIDDEN FROM ISSUING RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION OTHER
THAN THE QURAN
This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.
Not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe.
Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed.
A revelation from the Lord of the universe.
Had he uttered any other teachings.
We would have punished him.
We would have stopped the revelations to him. [69:40-46]
PROPHET MUHAMMAD FORBIDDEN FROM EXPLAINING THE QURAN
Do not move your tongue to hasten it.
It is we who will collect it into Quran.
Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran.
Then it is we who will explain it. [75:16-19]
GOD – TEACHER OF THE QURAN
The Most Gracious.
Teacher of the Quran. [55:1-2]
QURAN – FULLY DETAILED AND ONLY SOURCE OF RELIGIOUS LAW
Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt. The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient. [6:114-115]
This Quran could not possibly be authored by other than GOD. It confirms all previous messages, and provides a fully detailed scripture. It is infallible, for it comes from the Lord of the universe. [10:37]
QURAN – COMPLETE AND FULLY PRESERVED
Absolutely, we have revealed the reminder, and, absolutely, we will preserve it. [15:19]
No falsehood could enter it, in the past or in the future; a revelation from a Most Wise, Praiseworthy. [41:42]
NO SALVATION WITHOUT OBEYING THE MESSENGER
Proclaim: “If you love GOD, you should follow me.” GOD will then love you, and forgive your sins. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. Proclaim: “You shall obey GOD and the messenger.” If they
turn away, GOD does not love the disbelievers. [3:31-32]
MUHAMMAD REPRESENTED BY QURAN ALONE
Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD’s revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws and different rites. Had GOD willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To GOD is your final destiny – all of you – then He will inform you
of everything you had disputed. You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD’s
revelations to you. Do not follow their wishes, and beware lest they divert you from some of GOD’s revelations to you. If they turn away, then know that GOD wills to punish them for some of their sins. Indeed, many people are wicked. Is it the law of the days of ignorance that they seek to uphold? Whose LAW IS BETTER THAN GOD’S for those who have attained certainty? [5:48-49]
They almost diverted you from the revelations we have given you. They wanted you to fabricate something else, in order to consider you a friend. [17:73]
PROPHET MUHAMMAD’S DUTY – DELIVER THE QURAN
If they argue with you, then say, “I have simply submitted myself to GOD; I and those who follow me.” You shall proclaim to those who received the scripture, as well as those who did not, “Would you submit?” If they submit, then they have been guided, but if they turn away, your sole mission is to deliver this message. GOD is Seer of all people. [3:20]
You shall obey GOD, and you shall obey the messenger, and beware. If you turn away, then know that the sole duty of our messenger is to deliver the message efficiently. [5:92]
The sole duty of the messenger is to deliver the message, and GOD knows everything you declare and everything you conceal. [5:99]
DISBELIEVERS – FORBIDDEN FROM UNDERSTANDING THE QURAN
When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier. We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from
understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your Lord, using the Quran alone, they run away aversion. [17:45-46]
We have to keep in mind that anyone who is rejecting the above verses from the Quran cannot qualify as a believer.
DURING PROPHET MUHAMMAD’S LIFE – OBEY ONLY RIGHTEOUS ORDERS
O you prophet, when the believing women (who abandoned the disbelievers) to seek asylum with you pledge to you that they will not set up any idols besides GOD, nor steal, nor commit adultery, nor kill their children, nor fabricate any falsehood, nor disobey your RIGHTEOUS
orders, you shall accept their pledge, and pray to GOD to forgive them. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. [60:12]
PROPHET MUHAMMAD WAS HUMAN AND MADE MISTAKES
Recall that you said to the one who was blessed by GOD, and blessed by you, “Keep your wife and reverence GOD,” and you hid inside yourself what GOD wished to proclaim. Thus, you feared the people, when you were supposed to fear only GOD. When Zeid was completely through with his wife, we had you marry her, in order to establish the precedent that a man may marry the divorced wife of his adopted son. GOD’s commands shall be done. [33:37]
He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away. When the blind man came to him. How do you know? He may purify himself. Or he may take heed, and benefit from the message. As for the rich man. You gave him your attention. Even though you could not guarantee his salvation.
The one who came to you eagerly. And is really reverent. You ignored him. Indeed, this is a reminder. [80:1-11]
GOD IS THE ONLY ONE WHO GUIDES
You cannot guide the ones you love. GOD is the only One who guides in accordance with His will, and in accordance with His knowledge of those who deserve the guidance. [28:56]
They worship beside GOD idols that possess no power to harm them or benefit them, and they say, “These are our intercessors at GOD!” Say, “Are you informing GOD of something He does not know in the heavens or the earth?” Be He glorified. He is the Most High; far above needing
ARABIC LANGUAGE IS NOT NECESSARY TO UNDERSTAND THE QURAN
If we made it a non-Arabic Quran they would have said, “Why did it come down in that language?” Whether it is Arabic or non-Arabic, say, “For those who believe, it is a guide and healing. As for those who disbelieve, they will be deaf and blind to it, as if they are being
addressed from faraway.” [41:44]
There is no support in the Quran that the knowledge of Arabic language will give us understanding or better understanding of the Quran.
Shall we treat the Submitters like the criminals?
What is wrong with your logic?
Do you have another book to uphold?
In it, do you find anything you want? [68:35-38]
An example of the above verse is various different Hadith which gives numerous different accounts of certain incidence, thus leaving a person to accept the “most authentic” Hadith or “anything you want”.
ALL RELIGIOUS PRACTICES OF ISLAM CAME THROUGH PROPHET ABRAHAM
All religious practices – salat, zakat, fasting and pilgrimage came to us through prophet Abraham. The reader is invited to look at verse 22:26,27 (pilgrimage), verses 21:72-73 (salat & zakat) and verses 2;127-128 (all religious practices).
HADITH CONDEMNED IN QURAN BY NAME
These are GOD’s revelations that we recite to you truthfully. In which Hadith other than GOD and His revelations do they believe? [45:46]
GOD has revealed herein the best Hadith; a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom, then their skins and their hearts soften up for GOD’s message. Such is GOD’s guidance; He bestows it
upon whoever wills (to be guided). As for those sent astray by GOD, nothing can guide them. [39:23]
Among the people, there are those who uphold baseless Hadith, and thus divert others from the path of GOD without knowledge, and take it in vain. These have incurred a shameful retribution. [31:6]
THREE FAVORITE VERSES OF THOSE WHO ADVOCATE HADITH
GOD and His angels help and support the prophet. O you who believe, you shall help and support him, and regard him as he should be regarded. [33:56]
This is one of the most abused verses in the Quran. Millions of muslims based on this verse glorify Muhammad against his will instead of glorifying God. There are two facts we have to keep in mind. First, whenever the word “nabi” is used in the Quran, it refers to Muhammad, when he was alive; not after his death. Second, in the same sura exactly thirteen verses ahead of this verse we find God and His angels do the same honoring for all the believers.
He is the One who helps you, together with His angels, to lead you out of darkness into the light. He is Most Merciful towards the believers. [33:43]
Verse 103 of sura 9 further clarifies the meaning of the words “Ssalloo” and “Yussallee”. In this verse we see that the prophet is commanded to “Yussallee” for the believers, just as they are asked to do for him in verse 33:56.
Take from their money a charity to purify them and sanctify them. And encourage them, for your encouragement reassures them. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient. [9:103]
The messenger of GOD has set up a good example for those among you who seek GOD and the Last Day, and constantly think about GOD. [33:21]
This verse is the thirteenth verse of eighteen verses describing the Battle of the Parties and Muhammad’s example of courage. This verse has been taken out of context and a completely different religion has been created by unauthorized and unreasonable regulations called, “Sunnah of the Prophet”.
[59:7] Whatever GOD restored to His messenger from the (defeated) communities shall go to GOD and His messenger (in the form of a charity). You shall give it to the relatives, the orphans, the poor, and the traveling alien. Thus, it will not remain monopolized by the strong among you. You may keep the spoils given to you by the messenger, but do not take what he enjoins you from taking. You shall reverence GOD. GOD is strict in enforcing retribution. This verse deals with the spoils of war, distributed by Muhammad. Muslims have taken this verse as – whatever the messenger gives you take it, and whatever he forbids you abstain from it – and have come up with unreasonable and unauthorized set of Sunnah of the prophet.
Besides the above three verses those who advocate Hadith and Sunnah have a favorite question, “If the Quran is complete and fully detailed, where is the description of how to perform salat?” There is no Hadith or Sunnah which tells us how to perform salat.
It is obvious, that prophet Muhammad followed the Quran (75:18) and thus adhered to all the Quranic verses given above. Obeying the prophet and following the prophet is to uphold what he upheld – that the Quran is complete, fully detailed and the only source of religious law.
