Reversion to Idolatry

In just two decades after the Prophet’s death, the idol worshipers who were defeated by the Prophet in the conquest of Mecca (632 AD) reverted to idolatry. Ironically, this time around their idol was the Prophet himself. Such idol worshipers obviously did not deserve to possess the pure Quran.                                 Dr. Rashad Khalifa, Messenger of God, Appendix 24

In three decades after the death of the Messenger of the Covenant a reversion to idolatry is complete. Like before, the idol is the messenger whose message was – worship God alone by upholding the Quran alone. The reversion to idolatry goes hand in hand with the rejection of the Quran as perfect, complete, fully detailed and the only source of law (2:2, 6:19, 6:114-115).

In their delusion, some of the traditional Muslims do not allow any images or statues, lest they fall prey to idolatry. They are oblivious to another form of idolatry (16:20-21, 3:79, 18:102, 9:31, 9:107) – following as a source of law (6:114-115, 18:27) words other than God’s words in the fully detailed scripture, the Quran. Numerous verses of the Quran point this out with verse 6:19 explicitly stating that following any other words as testimony is idolatry.

Thus, the revertors to idolatry cannot accept that the Quran:

  • Is the Arabic Quran which has 6346 verses
  • Has complete words of God which are the only source of law (6:114-115)
  • Is a Statute Book, bound by Statutory Law and which contains the message (25:1, 21:10)
  • Provides explanations for everything (16:89)
  • Is called Hadith and the only acceptable Hadith (77:50, 7:185, 45:6)

In defiance of God and His Messenger, the revertors equate the messenger’s human words in subheadings, appendices, footnotes, audios, videos, etc. as equivalent to God’s words in the Quran. They take the messenger’s human words as source of law under the guise of ‘obey the messenger’ and ‘authorized explanations’. Thus, they cannot answer the following questions which expose their beliefs and their distinct religion.

QUESTIONS WHICH EXPOSE THE IDOLATRY OF THE REVERTORS

What is your definition of the Quran?
Do you accept that God’s words are complete in the Quran per 6:115?
Do you accept that God’s words in the Quran are the only source of law and fully detailed per 6:114?
Do you accept that the Quran is a Statute Book per 25:1?
Do you accept that the scripture contains the message per 21:10?
Do you accept that the Quran provides explanations for everything per 16:89?
Do you accept that Rashad Khalifa was a human messenger of God?
Do you consider words which make up subheadings, footnotes, appendices, newsletters, books, audios and videos as words of a human or do you consider them as God’s words?
In the AEVQ, do you consider the properly identified words of the translated numbered verses as separate and distinct from footnotes, subheadings, etc.?
Do you consider the subheadings, footnotes, appendices, etc. as a sources of law?
Do you consider the words of subheadings, footnotes, appendices, etc. to be the same or ‘at par’ with the words of God in the Quran?
Do you accept that the Quran is a hadith?
If God’s words in the Glorious Quran can be called hadith, why would Rashad Khalifa’s words in subheadings, footnotes, appendices, newsletters, books, audios and videos; not be called hadith?

Acceptance that God’s words in the Quran are complete, perfect, fully detailed, only source of law and the only hadith leaves no option but to accept that worship of God alone boils down to upholding only His words in the Quran as the only source of law. Indeed, BELIEF in God dictates that we BELIEVE God. This is not acceptable to those who associate (shirk in Arabic) Rashad Khalifa’s words with God words.

OBEY GOD AND HIS MESSENGER

The Mohammedans justify following sources other than Quran under the same guise of ‘obey God and His messenger’. Their sources are called Hadith (narration) and Sunnah (system). The revertors call their additional sources ‘authorized explanations’. They cannot accept the fact that God Himself calls His own words in the Quran, Hadith and admonishes us not to follow any other hadith (45:6).

The following is to demonstrate to the revertors that they don’t obey God, nor do they obey the messenger. This is from the ‘The Great Debate’ video.

Dr. Abdel Rahman Salem: “So, you don’t believe in Hadith and Sunnah. Do you believe in Hadith and Sunnah?”
Dr. Rashad Khalifa: “I believe the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed because God said so in the Quran”
Dr. Abdel Rahman Salem: “And we don’t have to use Hadith and Sunnah at all?”
Dr. Rashad Khalifa: “Does not matter – ANY other source”

OBEY GOD AND HIS MESSENGER – IN PRACTICE

When the messenger was alive, the submitters with him would and were expected to treat him as a boss or superior or a person in charge (e.g.: 24:62,63).  The submitters would not take the messenger’s requests lightly. Those wanting to confer with the messenger were obligated to pay to charity before conferring (58:12).  The submitters with the messenger could ask him to judge among their disputes and unhesitatingly accept his judgement. The righteous submitter would readily obey the messenger in mundane daily affairs or not so mundane requests like an invitation to Tucson for a visit.

When it came to religion and worship of God alone, with the messenger, it was always, always the Quran left, right and center. There was never an occasion that we were asked to ‘obey the messenger’ because it was always, ‘what does the Quran say.’ Anyone can verify this from Quran studies and videos. The messenger in various formats including one-to-one talks with submitters consistently reminded us of the following only God’s words in the Quran (6:19, 6:38, 6:114-115, 17:46, 39:45).

FABRICATION AND INNOVATION

As pointed out the messenger, never stated that we should follow him rather than God’s words in the Quran. The revertors have fabricated and innovated the messenger’s words as a source of law calling them ‘authorized explanations’ and under the emblem ‘obey the messenger’.

The revertors then, promptly FAIL to obey the messenger when it comes to the messenger’s own explanations and teachings! Certainly, they have already failed to obey God as pointed out above. (The following is not comprehensive and does not include clear writings by the messenger in the AEVQ, newsletters or his book, “Quran, Hadith & Islam” admonishing us to follow only the words of God in the Quran).

RASHAD KHALIFA ON QURAN ALONE

“We follow God. We follow the word of God alone. The principle is very easy – if it is not in the Quran, we have no consideration for it.
…your criteria is the Quran. If it is not in the Quran don’t believe it, no matter who is talking to you. It is a very simple principle. This is what we follow.
But you must be aware of this principle. It is our principle – if it is not in the Quran, I don’t believe it. It may or may not be correct, but if it is not in the Quran, I am not following it.”- Rashad Khalifa, Friday Sermon, 1989 Conference.

“Quran is the final scripture. It is completion of the message.
The Quran is all you need. In fact, God said the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed. If you go to any other source you will be disobeying God.
You devote yourself completely to God alone and devote yourself to the word of God alone, the Quran alone.” – Rashad Khalifa, Essentials of Submission Video.

“We are people who follow the Quran, the whole Quran and nothing but the Quran. Therefore, anybody and this means anybody who brings any information must conform to the Quran, the whole Quran and nothing but the Quran.  And if anyone, I will underline anyone, who comes up with information that is not confirmed by the Quran, we tell him forget it, we don’t accept it. The criterion is preaching, confirming existing scripture, the Quran and nothing else.” – Rashad Khalifa, Khutba announcing his messengership, April 1988.

Additional mentions of Quran alone by Rashad Khalifa.

THE QURANISTS AND THE REVERTORS

The Quranists fail to follow the Quran, since they cannot accept outside the Quran sources such well-established meaning of words and/or distort Arabic words into something alien. They reject what was revealed before the Quran such as religious duties given to Abraham (2:4).

Thus, some of the Quranists believe in 3 salat based on their corruption of the verse 11:114. Their translation of that verse violates Arabic language and word meanings and no other translation supports their translation.

The Quranists have company in their method of fabrication of God’s only acceptable religion. The revertors similarly fail to accept, outside the Quran generally accepted principles, existing for a millennium. They also go one step further.

(1) They outright reject 6:115. They just cannot accept that God’s words are complete in the Quran (if you get them to define the word Quran in the first place).

(2) They reject the Arabic and English grammar rules of “And” vs “OR”

(3) They cannot accept the concept of Statutory law in existence centuries before Jesus. Unlike Common Law, the source always remains the written law in Statutory law. God has explicitly called the Quran, a Statute Book (25:1).

(4) They defy common sense in seeking to obey a dead messenger (while at the same time failing to obey him). There are two major blunders here – they look to the messenger’s words of explanation as a source for religious law in defiance of 6:114-115 (and numerous other verses) and they seek a dead (16:21) messenger to judge in their affairs (4:65).

ABUSED VERSES

The traditional Muslim’s religion is based on the abuse of a handful of verses – 33:56 (praising Mohammad instead of God), 33:21 (Muhammad was a good example and thus you should do what Mohammad did) and 59:7 (Muhammad allows and enjoins).

Christians in a similar fashion abuse a handful verses the most prominent being “only begotten son” written in a later Gospel.

ABUSED VERSES

  1. [81:19] This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.

This verse clearly refers to MOC as the footnote clearly points out and provide mathematical evidence. The abusers focus on the word ‘This’ which clearly refers to the Quran as evidenced by 81:27, 69:40, 69:48, 2:252, 28:59 and 98:2 (A messenger from God, reciting Sacred Scriptures). In defiance of the evidence and common sense the revertors believe the word ‘this’ sanctions them to make the messenger’s words a source of law.

  1. [5:19] O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you, to explain things to you, after a period of time without messengers, lest you say, “We did not receive any preacher or warner.” A preacher and warner has now come to you. GOD is Omnipotent.

This verse clearly refers to MOC and the abusers focus is on the word ‘explain’.  While the verse clearly states ‘explain things’ rather than ‘explain revelations’ or ‘explain verses’; they set aside the fact that there are 20+ verses which state God explains the revelations (2:230, 2:242, 3:103, 4:26, 5:75, 5:89, 6:46, 6:55, 6:105, 6:126, 7:32, 7:58, 7:174, 9:11, 10:5, 10:24, 13:2, 16:89, 17:12, 24:18, 24:61, 30:28, 57:17, 75:19). God is the only Teacher of the Quran (55:2) and one of God’s means of communication with humans is through inspiration (42:51). God thus explains the Quran to the sincere.

  1. [98:2] A messenger from GOD is reciting to them sacred instructions.

We don’t hear as much about this verse as the MOC translated it as “A messenger from God, reciting Sacred Scriptures” in appendix two.

  1. [21:27] They never speak on their own, and they strictly follow His commands.

Their obvious focus is on the words, ‘…never speak on their own…’ thus providing themselves the authorization to sanction anything the messenger said as a source of law. The farce here is they promptly disregard numerous teachings of the messenger which do not suit their religion (see above).

  1. [42:51] No human being can communicate with GOD except through inspiration, or from behind a barrier, or by sending a messenger through whom He reveals what He wills. He is the Most High, Most Wise.

This verse informs us that God communicates to a human through inspiration and through a messenger. God’s communication from behind a barrier only applied to Moses since God spoke to him directly. They disregard God’s communication with humans through inspiration and focus solely a ‘sending a messenger through whom He reveals what He wills’. The messenger provided us ‘authorized explanations’, is their proclamation. The ‘authorized explanations’ above by the messenger are promptly set aside together with disobeying God’s words in the Quran.

The following verse makes it clear that the Quran provides all explanations.

[16:89] The day will come when we will raise from every community a witness from among them, and bring you as the witness of these people. We have revealed to you THIS BOOK to provide EXPLANATIONS for EVERYTHING, and guidance, and mercy, and good news for the submitters.

  1. [4:150] Those who DISBELIEVE in GOD and His messengers, and seek to make distinction among GOD and His messengers, and say, “We believe in some and reject some,” and wish to follow a path in between;
    [4:151] these are the REAL DISBELIEVERS. We have prepared for the disbelievers a shameful retribution.

[4:152] As for those who BELIEVE in GOD and His messengers, and make no distinction among them, He will grant them their recompense. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

Believe it or not, the revertors use verse 4:150-151 to state that there should be no distinction between God and His messengers thus giving themselves a free pass to treat the messenger’s words and God’s words in the Glorious Quran as equal. Thus, they join the company of the Muhammadans who make the same claim. Verses 4:150-151 deals with those who disbelieve.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF REVERSION TO IDOLATRY

Admission Test is a central aspect of the Revertors religion and was never a central aspect of the religion when the messenger was alive. This is for the simple reason that the words ‘Admission Test’, ‘Perfect Health’ and ‘Perfect Wealth’ are not words of the Quran nor are those words in the Quran Index in the AEVQ.

Rashad Khalifa provided a conceptual explanation for tests mentioned in the Quran (29:2, 2:155) with his phrase ‘Admission Test’.

Most submitters do not have a problem with Rashad Khalifa’s explanation that new submitters who claim to believe in God alone will be tested per 29:2 and other verses. In his explanation, primarily in the King of Chaos video (one of the earliest videos produced for the free channel of local city channels), he classifies the three stages a new submitter might go through.

However, the revertors have taken Rashad Khalifa’s words and his explanation and attempt to foolishly and abjectly apply his explanation to the whole Quran. The revertors explain the Quran (or certain aspects/parts of the Quran) in light of what the human messenger said in his conceptual explanation. This is absurd and has led the revertors into setting up a partner with God and into the realm of idolatry.

Most certainly, one is stripped of common sense when they set up a partner next to God and thus shift to the dominion of Satan. Thus, the resultant behavior of revertors as subhuman. Dr. Rashad Khalifa’s niece died of cancer under the age of 40. With terminal cancer she attended two conferences. Some, with beliefs of revertors, did not even extend the courtesy of Salam to her, let alone ask her about her health. Dr. Khalifa’s niece was just example of this subhuman behavior. Other examples include other submitters attending the conference (in similar circumstances like Dr. Khalifa’s niece). The revertors had no qualms in passing judgement of the worst in the Hereafter for submitters who passed away, for according to them, ‘they did not pass the admission test.’ This subhuman behavior was magnified with no consideration of the family and loved ones of the departed.

More than likely, this subhuman behavior by these revertors is reserved for those who claim to worship God alone but exempted for their neighbors or office colleagues who are sick or who lose loved ones.

Rashad Khalifa on Quran alone

FROM DR. RASHAD KHALIFA’S TRANSLATION

The moment they seek guidance from anything besides the Quran, no matter how “right” it seems, they fall into Satan’s trap (see 63:1). For they have rejected God’s word and set up another god besides God (18:57). Appendix 19

The Quran proclaims that the Quran is complete, perfect, and fully detailed (6:1938114, 115; 50:45), and that religious regulations not specifically instituted in the Quran constitute a religion other than Islam, i.e., Submisssion (42:2117:46). The true believers uphold the Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but the Quran. This principle is confirmed by the Quran’s mathematical code. Verse 46 of Sura 17 proclaims that we shall uphold the Quran ALONE. The word “ALONE” occurs in the Quran 6 times: 7:7017:4639:4540: 12 & 84, and 60:4. All these occurrences refer to God, except 17:46. When we add the numbers of suras and verses which refer to “GOD ALONE,” we get 361, 19×19. This proves that 17:46 refers to “the Quran ALONE.”
Appendix 18

[6:114] 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.
[6:115] The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.
*6:113-115 Upholding any source beside the Quran reflects disbelief in the Quran (Appendix 18)

FROM VIDEOS & AUDIOS

“We follow God. We follow the word of God alone. The principle is very easy – if it is not in the Quran, we have no consideration for it.
…your criteria is the Quran. If it is not in the Quran don’t believe it, no matter who is talking to you. It is a very simple principle. This is what we follow.
But you must be aware of this principle. It is our principle – if it is not in the Quran, I don’t believe it. It may or may not be correct, but if it is not in the Quran, I am not following it.”- Rashad Khalifa, Friday Sermon, 1989 Conference.

“Principle is – if not in the Quran we do not follow it.” – Rashad Khalifa, 1989 conference speech video.

“In this conference, you’re going to hear lots of views, personal views from many people. Anybody can say anything they want. But your criterion is the Quran. If it is not in the Quran, don’t believe it. No matter who is talking to you. Very simple PRINCIPLE because this is what we follow.” – Rashad Khalifa, 1989 conference.

“God thus teaches us that even contemporary Sahaabah can misunderstand God’s messenger. We must uphold ONLY the Quran” – Rashad Khalifa, SP – July 1989.

“Quran is the final scripture. It is completion of the message.
The Quran is all you need. In fact, God said the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed. If you go to any other source you will be disobeying God.
You devote yourself completely to God alone and devote yourself to the word of God alone, the Quran alone.” – Rashad Khalifa, Essentials of Submission Video.

“I believe That the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed because God said so in the Quran.
Because God says in the Quran that the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed. Question is do you believe God or not? If you believe God, you believe that the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed.
…therefore, if you go to anything else, you are rejector of the Quran. You have rejected disbelieved God.
Quran is fully detailed. God says Quran is fully detailed. Therefore, you don’t need anything else.
The important point is that God says the Quran is complete, perfect and fully detailed. This is the important point.” – Rashad Khalifa, The Great Debate

“This (Quran) is the textbook. This is the manual” –  Rashad Khalifa, 1988 Conference

“As stated in 3:81 and 46:9, God’s Messenger of the Covenant does not bring anything new; everything I receive and pass on to you is already in the Quran.” – Rashad Khalifa, Feb 1990 SP.

“Our only source must be His Word – The Quran” – Rashad Khalifa, 1988 Conference

“The criterion of obeying the messenger is that whatever he says must be in the Quran and be backed up by what God is saying. If it is not in the Quran, it is your obligation to disobey him.  Actually, in the same Sura it says that. So, the reason when God says ‘Obey God and His messenger’ is because the messenger conveys the word of God.” – Rashad Khalifa, Dec 28, 1989, Q-study #39

“We are people who follow the Quran, the whole Quran and nothing but the Quran. Therefore, anybody and this means anybody who brings any information must conform to the Quran, the whole Quran and nothing but the Quran.  And if anyone, I will underline anyone, who comes up with information that is not confirmed by the Quran, we tell him forget it, we don’t accept it. The criterion is preaching, confirming existing scripture, the Quran and nothing else.” – Rashad Khalifa, Khutba announcing his messengership, April 1988.

“We follow only God. We follow only the word of God. As you know, I will be the first to tell you, if it is my opinion, if it is Rashad Khalifa, don’t follow him, because you will probably do the wrong thing. You must be sure you are following God and following the word of God and we will go to any extend to make sure we are following God and the word of God. We are not following the words of any human being.” –Rashad Khalifa, Friday Sermon, 1989 Conference.

“You know that if I tell you tell you anything that is not Quranic, you can tell me to get out of here and I will be the first to denounce that.
This is the final message. Everything is here. And we do not do anything that is not here.” – Rashad Khalifa, 1988 conference.

“If you follow Dr. Khalifa, you are not right. Anybody here, and we all know this, we do not follow any person and we emphasize here we are worshippers of God alone. We follow the word of God alone and if I say anything that is not in the Quran, contradicting the Quran, I am the first one to appreciate alerting me to this because then I am wrong. Nobody follows me.” – Rashad Khalifa – Great Debate

“Why are you disobeying the messenger when he tells you that the Quran is complete and fully detailed, and you should uphold the Quran alone. Why do you disobey him and go to something else? You see in the Quran (…. Arabic), so why don’t you listen and obey Allah and the Rasool?
“…So therefore, you are reciting these verses, if you obey the Rasool you will uphold the Quran, the whole Quran and nothing but the Quran. If you go to anything other than the Quran, you are not obeying the messenger.” – Rashad Khalifa, The Great Debate

“Our leader is the Quran. Our imam is the Quran. Our guide is the Quran, the word of God. We are worshippers of God alone.” – Rashad Khalifa, The Great Debate.

FROM QURAN, HADITH, AND ISLAM

One God / One Source

Our Almighty Creator commands that QURAN, specifically QURAN, SHALL BE THE ONLY SOURCE of religious teachings.

Furthermore, we are told that THE ACCEPTANCE OF ANY OTHER SOURCES for religious guidance equals the setting up of OTHER GODS BESIDE GOD:

“Say (O Muhammad), ‘Whose testimony is greater?’ Say, ‘God is the witness between me and you that THIS QURAN was given to me to preach it to you, and to whomever it reaches.’ However, you certainly bear witness that you set up other gods beside God (by upholding other sources beside Quran). Say, ‘I will never do what you are doing; I disown your idol worship.'” (6:19)

This profound verse, which happens to be verse [19] of Sura 6, enjoins the believers from upholding or following ANY OTHER SOURCE BESIDE QURAN, and that doing this is equivalent to the setting up of other gods beside God.

In the strictest possible language, we are commanded to uphold Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but Quran.

Repeatedly, we are commanded to uphold Quran as the ONLY SOURCE OF RELIGIOUS GUIDANCE.

Again and again, we are reminded that the following of ANY OTHER SOURCE BESIDE QURAN EQUALS THE SETTING UP OF OTHER GODS BESIDE GOD.

Verses 22 through 38 of Sura 17 represent some of the most important commandments in Quran. Immediately following these verses we find the verse shown below:

“This is some of the wisdom revealed to you (in this Quran), and YOU SHALL NOT SET UP ANY OTHER GOD BESIDE GOD (by following any other source beside Quran). Otherwise, you will be thrown into hell, blamed and debased.” (17:39)

QURAN: AN EXTRAORDINARY BOOK

Despite the clear commandments, why do the followers of Hadith & Sunna fail to uphold Quran ALONE?

The answer is provided in the same Sura following the commandment shown on Page 8. Verses 45 and 46 of Sura 17 inform us that those who refuse to believe God and heed His commandment to uphold Quran ALONE are deliberately isolated from Quran. These two crucial verses are shown below:

“When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier. And we place shields on their hearts, to prevent them from understanding Quran, and deafness in their ears. Consequently, when you preach your Lord IN THE QURAN ALONE they run away in aversion.” (17:45-46)

WHAT MORE CAN WE SAY ??

DO YOU BELIEVE GOD OR NOT?

God says that Quran is COMPLETE, PERFECT, & FULLY DETAILED, and that you shall not seek any other source:

“We did not leave anything out of this book, then all will be gathered before their Lord (for judgment). Those who do not believe our verses are deaf and dumb; in total darkness. God sends astray whomever He wills, and directs whomever He wills in the right path.” (6:38-39)

“Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He revealed THIS BOOK FULLY DETAILED? (6:114)

“The word of your Lord is COMPLETE in truth & justice.” (6:115)

OBEYING THE MESSENGER IS CONDITIONED

Obeying the messenger is absolute only as far as the Quranic revelations are concerned.

Obeying the messenger is in upholding Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but Quran.

Obedience is strictly ON CONDITION THAT the source is God through the messenger, and not the messenger who is no more than a human being, subject to errors.

The Quran emphasizes that obedience is absolute when the source is God, while the personal opinion of the messenger may be detrimental to him and/or to those who follow his personal opinions:

“Anything good that happens to you (O Muhammad) is from God. And anything bad that happens to you is from you. We have sent you as a messenger to the people, and God suffices as a witness. Whoever obeys the messenger is obeying God. As for those who turn away, we did not send you as their guardian.” (4:79-80)

Thus, the personal opinion of Muhammad may be bad, or may cause bad things to happen. On the other hand, Muhammad the messenger utters THE WORDS OF GOD, i.e., the Quran, and must be obeyed absolutely. For whoever obeys the messenger is obeying God, and we are to obey the commandments of God, not the commandments of men.

QURAN: THE ONLY LEGITIMATE “HADITH”

“These are God’s verses; we recite them for you truthfully. In which “Hadith”, beside God and His verses, do they believe in? WOE TO EVERY SINFUL FABRICATOR. He hears God’s verses, then insists arrogantly on his way, as if he never heard them; promise him painful retribution. When he learns anything from our verses, he takes it in vain; these have deserved humiliating retribution. Awaiting them is hell; neither their earnings, nor the idols they had set up beside God can help them; they have deserved terrible retribution. THIS IS THE GUIDANCE, and those who do not believe the verses of their Lord will suffer debasement, and painful retribution.” (45:6-11)

Do you believe God’s verses? Do you believe that Quran is complete, perfect, and fully detailed (6:19, 38, & 114)? Or, do you have to have other sources beside Quran?

Quran is the only “Hadith” to be followed; all other Hadiths are blasphemous and misleading fabrications:

“God has revealed the best ‘Hadith’; a book that is consistent, and describes both ways (to heaven and Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord shudder therefrom, then their skins and hearts soften up and receive God’s message. Such is God’s guidance; He guides whomever He wills. As for those sent astray by Him, no one can guide them.” (39:23)

“There are those who advocate vain ‘Hadith’ causing diversion from the path of God, without knowledge, and fail to take such actions seriously; these have deserved humiliating retribution. And when our verses are recited to him, he turns away arrogantly, as if he never heard them; as if his ears are deaf; promise him painful retribution.” (31:67)

OBEY GOD AND OBEY THE MESSENGER

Satan succeeded in duping millions of Muslims into believing that obeying God means obeying the Quran, while obeying the messenger means obeying Hadith.

What helped in popularizing this Satanic trick was the general ignorance of Quran among the Muslim masses, and their failure to heed the divine commandments that Quran shall be the ONLY SOURCE of jurisprudence and/or religious guidance.

Only a little thinking leads us to realize that Quran came to us through Muhammad’s mouth, and DID NOT COME TO US FROM GOD DIRECTLY. Hence the commandment that we shall obey the messenger…for he utters the words of God.

When we seek “religious” instructions from Muhammad, or any other source beside God, we support Satan in his claim that God needs a partner. Therefore, those who worship God ALONE follow the instructions and teachings of GOD ALONE. As shown throughout this book, God’s teachings are complete, perfect, and fully detailed in Quran.

FINALLY: MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION

In your mind, can God survive ALONE???

Or, does God need Muhammad, in your mind, in order to be commemorated and worshiped???

In your mind, can GOD ALONE survive?

Or, does God need a partner, in your mind, such as Muhammad, Jesus, Mary, or some saint(s)???

Would you be perfectly happy and content if you knew about GOD ALONE, without Muhammad, Jesus, Mary, or any saint, or anyone, or anything?

Are you annoyed by talking about GOD ALONE?

When I keep talking about GOD ALONE, does this annoy you? Do you have to hear other names along with God? Can GOD ALONE survive in your mind?

When I repeat, and repeat, my talk about GOD ALONE, do you feel any repulsion? Or, are you happy and content with the talk about GOD ALONE??? Based on the Great Quranic criterion, as stated in 39:45, your answers to these questions provide the key to knowing yourself, and your destiny.

PRAISE BE TO GOD, LORD OF THE UNIVERSE
