The First paper: The Inner Traditions and spiritual Sciences of Islam.


 


The researcher gives a brief account of Dr. Abd-Allah lectures about Sufism in Islam. They together- the student and the teacher- have many mistakes. They attribute Sufism to the religion of Islam while it must be attributed to some Muslims appeared two centuries after the Prophet Mohammed’s death. They also make ”Al Zohd” or renunciation a part of Islam while it was invented about 150 years after the prophet Mohammed’s death for some political and social reasons.


 


Islam was completed after the completeness of the Quran. [5: 3]. Allah[God] repeats in the Quran that  the Quran is only scripture should be upheld by Muslims,[ 6:126 ,153, 159][7:2 3][17 :46][7: 185][77: 50][45: 6][29 :51]. Prophet Mohammed in his life was commanded to uphold the Quran alone [6 :50][7: 203][10 :15][46: 9][6 :106][10 :109][33: 2][75 :18][43 :43] Allah [God] in the Quran repeats this warning: “ Who is more evil than one who invents lies, then attributes them to God, or rejects His revelation..”[6: 21, 93, 144][7: 37][10:17][11: 18][18:15][29:68][39: 32][61: 7].


That means there is no sacred book in Islam beside the Quran, and there is no divine revelation after the Quran, and no one after the Prophet Mohammed has the divine authorities to add any thing to the religion of Islam, or to attribute any thing to Allah or His Messenger Mohammed.

Every Muslim has the right to express his opinion or Ijtehad as long he attributes it to himself, and then every one has the right to follow him or to reject his opinion, but it is great sin in Islam to attribute your opinion to Allah or to His Messenger after the completeness of the Quran and the death of the prophet Mohammed because you make your human perspective divine teachings should be obeyed by any Muslim.

This is what should be.

 

But what happened was something different.

Muslim Empire had many peoples who had many races and cultures and religions before Islam. Most of those people converted to Islam after two centuries or more after the Prophet Mohammed.

As a new Muslims they brought their religious backgrounds and attributed them to the religion of Islam by inventing sayings or [Hadeeth] and attributing them to Allah and/or the Prophet Mohammed as the Sunni sect do, or attributed these sayings to the Prophet Mohammed and his nearest family [Aal Al Bayt] as the Shiites do, or attribute sayings to their sacred Saints claiming that they got the divine revelation directly from God as the Sufi sect do.

So it is imperative to make a distinction between Islam as a religion and Muslims as human beings who have their human good and bad deeds. Their deeds belong to them and have nothing to d>

But what happened was something dio with the religion of Islam.

When we mix the religion of Islam with Muslims we fall in many mistakes and contradiction.

For Example in this paper:

1- In the first lines of his paper he said the roots of Sufism are within the Prophetic tradition to prove that Sufism is inside Islam. In the second page he said there is a little proof of real Sufism before 800[about 200 H]. How come the Prophet Mohammed talked about the [real Sufism] then there was not real Sufism after him for two centuries?

As a historic fact, the Arabic word Sufi never mentioned at all in the entire books of Sunna and Hadeeth, from the beginning of the Sunni tradition in the third century after the Prophet M.

In my belief as a Muslim Scholar, all the Hadeeth are fabricated sayings attributing falsely to the Prophet M., two centuries and more after his death, but the Arabic word “ Sufi’ never mentioned in any of them. More over, this word “Sufi ‘was mentioned at the first time in al Jahiz book “Al Bayan WA Al Tabyeen’ al Jahiz was a great scholar in the Abbasy time and died in 255 after Hijrah.

2- He said that Sufism is inside Islam, then he talks about another Islam, The Islam of Foqaha’a.and the conflicts between the two of them. He said: “At this critical moment the irreducible antagonism between the spiritual Islam of Sufism and the Legalitarian Islam became patent.]. How come Islfferent.

So it is imperative to make a distinction between Islam as a religion and Muslims as human beings who have their human good and bad deeds. Their deeds belong to them and have nothing to do with the religion of Islam.

It will be correct to say Muslims have many collides sects and different traditions but not Islam.

Muslim has to believe that the religion of Islam is a straight way without any crookedness, or ambiguity [39:28] [18: 1] [4:82] [41: 41, 42]

Sufism has its mystical nature inside Muslim History because of its inner faith that contradicts the Islamic faith saying: There is no God but One God.” In the opposite side the Sufism faith confirms that there is no difference between the Almighty Creator; Allah, The God and the creatures including the entire universe. The details are in my book” The Religious faiths in the Mamelukes era, between Islam and Sufism.]

My PH D in Al Azhar in 1975- 1980 was about the contradiction between Islam and Sufism in that historic time of Mameluke era.

There is no problem in good situation given to the women in Islam which was celebrated in these presentations. The Problem is in the other side which despises the women and debases them. It is against the objectivity and fairness to bring one side and ignore the other one. It is also for the favor of Islam to discuss and question this dark side. If we believe that Islam is the religion of justice and it gives the woman her rights and makes it equal to the man, then we have to deal with the other side which gives opposite direction.

 

Here, we have the same problem, making no difference and no distinction between Islam and Muslims. Muslims are – now- three big sects, every sect has its own perspectives about women and attributed them to the prophet Mohammed and misused the Quranic verses accordingly.

The Sunni sect is more fanatic against the women than the two other sects.

In their sacred tradition, they attribute to the Prophet Mohammed sayings such as: “Women are diminished in their minds and religion.” “They betrayed the companion husband.” “They were created from crooked rib; if you try to straighten it you will break it. You have to leave it as crooked as it is”, “Calamity [or bad luck] is in woman, the home and the horse”.

Here, we have the same problem, making no difference and no distinction between Islam and Muslims. Muslims are – now- three big sects, every sect has its own perspectives about women and attributed them to the prophet Mohammed and misused the Quranic verses accordingly.


The Sunni sect is more fanatic against the women than the two other sects.


In their sacred tradition, they attribute to the Prophet Mohammed sayings such as: “Women are diminished in their minds and religion.” “They betrayed the companion husband.” “They were created from crooked rib; if you try to straighten it you will break it. You have to leave it as crooked as it is”, “Calamity [or bad luck] is in woman, the home and the horse”.


These are some examples mentioned in Al Bokhary the most sacred Imam of Hadeeth in the Sunni tradition and sect. More over, they violated the Quranic Jurisprudence concerning the rights of women.


 


The details are in my unpublished book:” The Laws of woman between the Quran and the Sunni tradition”. There is also my published research:”The right of woman to preside the Islamic state”. Fundamental Historic analytic study. It is translated into English and published on my website.  

Although Dr. Abd Allah confirms that Jihad in Islam means only to defend yourself and your country and your religion, he justifies another kind of war; when Muslims attacks another country to establish justice and freedom. He has no Quranic prove, so he mentioned some proves from Muslim history as the same problem of mixing Islam with Muslims.

According to the Quranic confirmation, the only reason for war is to defend your self and your country against the enemy who is attacking you, and you can respond to his attack by equivalent attack, but not to start war or attack the others.[2 :190 -194]

Accordingly, Muslims after the Prophet Mohammed violated the Quran when they conquered other peoples and other countries in Asia and Africa and Europewww.ahmed.g3z.com


 


The Third paper: the History of Jihad in Islam.


 


In this paper, the researcher summarizes the lectures without giving his remarks and opinion.


Dr. Abd Allah in his lectures about Jihad in Islam has the same problem of mixing Islam and Muslims. But he is more influenced by the Sufism than other Muslim sects. So, he mentioned the Sufi Jihad as one meaning of the Islamic Jihad.


According to the Sufism, Al Jihad is Jehad of “ Nafs” or striving one’s soul to make it abandon its body to reach the Almighty God ;Allah and unite in Him and becomes part of Him. This Kind of Jihad - as they cleared in their scriptures- could be achieved by certain Sufi trainings. In the Middle aged centuries they used to separate themselves in their own religious buildings; named: khawanick, Zawaya, Robat, Kobba, Torba and Mosques to practice this Jihad, but as their historic books mentioned they used to commit all the vices and sins. This is against Islam and its moral system and its monotheism.


 


. Then they fought each other for the vanity of this life, and became different groups and collide cults and sects from that time until now.

 

 Moreover, the traditional meaning of Jihad in the Muslim mentality relates to this practical historic meaning of attacking other nations under the name of Islam to steel their wealth and enslaves their people as it happened during Muslim conquest and establishing their Empire in the Middle Ages.

This is what Wahabi Sunni and Imami Shiites believe until now. That why they – in spite of their disputes and enmity- celebrate that Hadeeth attributed to the Prophet Mohammed Saying: “ I am commanded to fight all the people until they testify that there is no God but one God , and I am his messenger “.

Again, it is imperative to make distinction between Islam and Muslims; otherwise we will make mistakes and contradictions.

 

The fourth Paper: 2003 ISNA Education forum:

 

The Student gives a brief account of some papers and sessions in this forum about the Islamic schools in the Although Dr. Abd Allah confirms that Jihad in Islam means only to defend yourself and your country and your religion, he justifies another kind of war; when Muslims attacks another country to establish justice and freedom. He has no Quranic prove, so he mentioned some proves from Muslim history as the same problem of mixing Islam with Muslims.


According to the Quranic confirmation, the only reason for war is to defend your self and your country against the enemy who is attacking you, and you can respond to his attack by equivalent attack, but not to start war or attack the others.[2 :190 -194]


Accordingly, Muslims after the Prophet Mohammed violated the Quran when they conquered other peoples and other countries in Asia and Africa and Europe. Then they fought each other for the vanity of this life, and became different groups and collide cults and sects from that time until now.


 


 Moreover, the traditional meaning of Jihad in the Muslim mentality relates to this practical historic meaning of attacking other nations under the name of Islam to steel their wealth and enslaves their people as it happened during Muslim conquest and establishing their Empire in the Middle Agcountry-region>U.S., without giving his comments and remarks, or giving some brief of discussions during these sessions.

According to his account, it is clear that the papers concentrated on the other side’ The American side” as a ‘ bullies’ and how to deal with him, and its official negative reaction toward Muslim schools, ignoring what we should do to reform our religious courses and curriculums to prove that Islam is the religion of peace, tolerance, freedom and justice.

The other side has the right to discuss these religious curriculums after September 11, and has the right to ask for reforming them after he discovers how these religious curriculums are influenced by the fanatic Wahabi doctrine in dealing with the non Muslims.

It was clear that the Muslim response was not positive enough. They should begin this reform, calling the other side to monitor it. It is the real Islamic service in this critical time.

Instead of this, the papers ignored this issue; knowingly that it is the main problem in the mutual relationship between the two sides.

It is imperative to know the background of any writer to understand his book and to analyze his opinion and to examine his mentality and the development or the key stone of his writing across the time, and the stance and the rank and the situation of this writer among others in his time and in the same field.

However, Muslim fanatic scholars are two kinds; the frank clear Sheikhs like Omar Abdel Rahman, who is now in prison in the U.S, and the hypocrite sheikhs who mention some and conceal more. Al sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi belongs to this category with his teachers Mohammed Al Ghazaly and Sayyed Sabiq.

The first kind is usually against its regime calling for rebellion and the religious revolution, using the untouchable Muslim side [Hadeeth and Tafseer] in his discourse to rally the masses with him against the regime and the [infidel west].

The other category has two discourses, in their confidential meeting they support the frank fanatics and try to defend them in front of the state if they can.

They have another sacred mission, is to defend the religious traditional culture of fanaticism and terrorism and keep it from any discussion to let this tradition able to produce more fanatic groups.


When the first category commits a terrorist action, you find that other scholars write to defend them in a very cunning way which makes the reader lose the right direction or become victim of misunderstanding and confusion.


This kind of discourse usually uses the big idioms and the undefined terms without specific meaning to rally the masses around him and to dismay the free thinkers and intellectuals.

This discourse ignores the very important Islamic value; the total unlimited freedom of belief and speech, as the Quran repeats that every one has the full choice to believe or to disbelieve, and he will be responsible before God alone in the Day of Judgment according to his choice.

 

However, the researcher gives right remarks about the book and the Muslim Brothers.

It is too difficult to reform the Muslim traditions and mentality after 13 centuries of religious dogmas and theocratic regimes. This needs a great sincere movement of reform, begins with writings and discussion to pave the way to the action for reform.

This book mentions the reasons of the Muslim downfall and the suggestions of reform, but the student does not concentrate on all these reasons and the aspects of cure. Instead he was drawn into minute details here and there. However, the student gives some insights and good comments when he compares quickly between this book and another book of Murad Hofmann in the same field.

It is attractive inside the Muslim World to talk about Islam in the U.S. as it is their dream to convert the most American to Islam. It Is attractive also for many groups inside the U.S itself to know more about this controversial religion of Islam, which has terrorist followers but it is the most increasing religion in the West while the Christianity with all of its abilities could not succeed in converting Muslims in Arab Muslim world or other Muslims inside the West to the Christianity.

However, there are not enough books in this field that can answer and respond to the entire questions in this regard. This book – actually – belongs to this field and to another field of reforming the Muslim community in the U.S.

Written by Jamal Badawi

 

In his review, the researcher begins with his own insight about gender equality in Islam, quoting the Sufi poet Jalaluldin Al Rumi as that Sufi in the Middle Ages represented the religion of Islam.

In his words al Rumi said” the Prophet [Mohammed] said that women …dominate men of intellectual .but bad men dominate women.” Actually, this was said by Mo’aweya Ibn Abi Sofian, the head of the Omawy dynasty, two centuries before Al Rumi.

 

Al Rumi also said “Woman is the radiance of God. She is not your beloved. She is the Creator- you could say…”Here, this Sufi poet expressed his Sufi faith which contradicts the Islamic faith.

Ibn Araby in his book: “Fosoos Al Hekam”,or seeds of wisdom, explained - in his talking about Adam- this Sufi doctrine about the man and woman saying that they are together Divine parts from God Himself, but the woman has greatest divine part from God than the man, and while the sexual intercourse, the two of mail and female are uniting in the Divine God.

The Fifth Book: Gender Equality in Islam.


Written by Jamal Badawi


 


 According to the Quran and Islamic faith, it is outrageous. But according to Islam also, every one has the right to believe whatever he wants and he will be responsible before God in the Day of Judgment according to his choice.

 

It is reasonable to say that some Muslims or the Sufi Muslims believe in woman as a radiance of God, but this does not prove the gender equality, it proves only that woman is higher than man.

 

After giving his insight, the student gives a brief account of this book which seems to talk about the bright side only ignoring the other side, as we talked before about this kind of discourse in this field.

Understanding the Wahabi Movement in the Muslim Society.

By Dr. V. Strudwick.

 

The student brings the author’s mistakes:

He said:” Rising waves of nationalist trends’ was among factors that inspired the Wahabi movement. It means the Arab nationalism appeared before the Wahabi movements.

It is wrong because the first voice calling for Arab Nationalism was Sat’e Al Hosary in the beginning of the twentieth century. Of course he was influenced by the other Lebanese writers and thinkers like George Zaidan, but Al Hosary was the only one who devoted his life for establishing the new trend of Arab Nationalists.

As a historic fact, the first Wahabi Saudi state [1745- 1818] used to attack and commit massacres in /SPAN>


It is reasonable to say that some Muslims or the Sufi Muslims believe in woman as a radiance of God, but this does not prove the gender equality, it proves only that woman is higher than man.


 


After giving his insight, the student gives a brief account of this book which seems to talk about the bright side only ignoring the other side, as we talked before about this kind of discourse in this field.

The second comments on Imam Sedan’s papers


 


                The Ottoman Emperor Abdel Hameed the second tried to face the European influence inside his helpless empire by calling to the Islamic unity all over the Muslim World led by the Ottoman Empire and Khalifa. Syria with its Christian Arabs was under the direct control of the Ottoman Empire, so the Syrian and the Lebanese intellectuals called for the Arab Nationalism to face the other concept of the Islamic unity and its Turkish leader. This happened between 1880 -1920, while the first Saudi Wahabi State was between 1745-1818.

 

He said: “The Wahabi doctrine prompted some…new reform which might solve the problems of the Muslim World, and a new understanding of religion.”

It is wrong. The Wahabi movement was and stills the biggest problem of Islam until now. The Wahabi doctrine did not provide a new understanding of the religion of Islam.

Understanding the Wahabi Movement in the Muslim Society.

Of course he was influenced by the other Lebanese writers and thinkers like George Zaidan, but Al Hosary was the only one who devoted his life for establishing the new trend of Arab Nationalists.


As a historic fact, the first Wahabi Saudi state [1745- 1818] used to attack and commit massacres in Iraq and Syria, killing Muslims and Arab Christians as Jihad. This instigated the other Sunni Muslims to convert to the Wahabi cults and to fight and massacre the Arab Christians in Syo the Muslims in the modern time the Middle aged fanatic dogmas and the religious bloody war under the name of Jihad. The Wahabi movement is the mother of all the terrorist Muslim movements in the entire Muslim World. Because of the Wahabi dogma and its hijacking the name of Islam, the Egyptian secular reform in the 19 and 20 centuries was terminated and the democratic waves have not reach the Arab Muslim World yet.

The Wahabi doctrine did not provide a new understanding of Islam. As a Muslim Scholar, I say it tarnishes the Islamic values of peace, tolerance, total                     freedom of speech and belief, justice and democracy. It is against Islam, but it represents some minute Muslim Sunni cult. Muslims are now three big categories: Sunni, Shiites and Sufi. The Sunni are the most fanatic cult, while the Sufi is more peaceful than Shiites. The fanatic Sunni cult has four schools; Hanabela is more fanatic than the other Sunni schools such as Ahnaf, Malekia, and Shafeiah.

Inside the radical school of Hanabela, Ibn Taymeia, who died in 1327, was the hardest line. Ibn Taymeia revolted against the Mameluke regime in Egypt and Syria during the 14th century.

Inside the teachings of Ibn Taymeia, Ibn Abdel Wahab is the most fanatic dogmas; not only in the Middle aged culture but the Wahabi cult introduced it to our time as the real Islam.

He said:” It is not that any section of Islam claims not to be a Mowaria. The Europeans interfered to protect them in the time of the great movements of the Western colonist in the Muslim and Arab World.  The Ottoman Emperor Abdel Hameed the second tried to face the European influence inside his helpless empire by calling to the Islamic unity all over the Muslim World led by the Ottoman Empire and Khalifa. Syria with its Christian Arabs was under the direct control of the Ottoman Empire, so the Syrian and the Lebanese intellectuals called for the Arab Nationalism to face the other concept of the Islamic unity and its Turkish leader.

It is wrong. The Wahabi movement was and stills the biggest problem of Islam until now. The Wahabi doctrine did not provide a new understanding of the religion of Islam.


As a problem, the Wahabi movement has brought to the Muslims in the modern time the Middle aged fanatic dogmas and the religious bloody war under the name of Jihad. The Wahabi movement is the mother of all the terrorist Muslim movements in the entire Muslim World. Because of the Wahabi dogma and its hijacking the name of Islam, the Egyptian secular reform in the 19 and 20hhid (i.e., believer in the Unity/ Oneness of God), but merely that the Wahabis have appropriated to themselves this title.”

It is right to say Islamic faith is the Oneness of God, and there is no creature that has any divine character of the only one God, even the angles and the prophets.

However, this is the real Islam, or what should be, but the different sects of Muslims are something else. The Sufi Muslims believe in the pantheism, or the unity of God and the entire universe, or the universe is a part of God. The Shiites believe in the divinity of their Imams, while the Sunni people believe in the prophet Mohammed as the one who is alive in his tomb, who knows the unseen, and will control the Day of Judgment by his intercession before God. They are making him god beside the Almighty God. This is the actual religious life of Muslims regardless of any motto they claim.

Actually the Wahabi has less numbers of gods and sacred saints than the Shiites and the Sufi.  That is why they claim the title of Mowahid to themselves. However, they are not the only cult who appropriates to themselves this monotheism. Al Mo’tazelah named themselves [Ahl Al adl WA al tawheed] (i.e., the people of justice and monotheism), besides [Al Mowahedeen.] dynasty who ruled North Africa and Spain between 1130 -1269]

The writer discusses the religious changes in the two Muslim countries; Morocco and Indonesia, but he reaches finally to the similarity of the religious aspects in them without giving reasons.

There are some simple facts in this regards:

However, this is the real Islam, or what should be, but the different sects of Muslims are something else. The Sufi Muslims believe in the pantheism, or the unity of God and the entire universe, or the universe is a part of God.

1-     The religious change has nothing to do with the religion of Islam but it relates to the Muslims and their different social historical geographical and cultural circumstances. It means there is one religion of Islam, but there are many different kinds of Muslims. All Muslims have the holy Quran; the only scripture and the only resource of Islam, but every Muslim sect has its own religious tradition, and by its tradition they understand the holy Quran.

2-     There is a real difference between Muslims in Morocco and Indonesia in the realm of the different circumstance, as the writer said. This difference made the Indonesian Muslim Sufi more peaceful and more tolerant than the Moroccan Sufi. Generally, The Sufi Muslims are peaceful, or they are supposed to be. But in the case of Morocco they were tough because Morocco, Spain and North Africa in the Middle ages were the battle field of the religious fight between Europe and Muslims, or between Islam and Christianity as they used to say during the crusaders and al Jihad. It was not the same case of Indonesia in the Middle ageN: 0in 0in 0pt">

There are some simple facts in this regards:


1-     The religious change has nothing to do with the religion of Islam but it relates to the Muslims and their ds.

The Sufi Muslim Indonesians have become fanatic in the modern time because two different reasons: The Wahabi Saudi influence and the Christian European colonist in the entire Muslim World, including Indonesia. The Wahabi factor needs some explanation.

Abdel Aziz, son of Abdel Rahman [Ibn Saud], founded the third Saudi State – which exists to this day -- with the help of fanatic guerrilla soldiers known as Al Ikhwan, or “The Brothers”.  For more than 20 years the Ikhwan fought for Abdel Aziz to reestablishing the Saudi State, [1905 – 1925].  It was ultimately named the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932.  The Ikhwan, who were lawless, tough Bedouins, were steeped in Wahabi dogma, believing it to be the real forgotten Islam, to be enforced with swords and Jihad.

After adding the Hejaz and the Muslim Sacred Mosques to their conquered territory, the Ikhwan wanted to continue their jihad by invading Iraq and Syria where they had committed many massacres.  This was a threat to the mighty British Empire


2-     There is a real difference between Muslims in Morocco and Indonesia in the realm of the different circumstance, as the writer said.

But in the case of Morocco they were tough because Morocco, Spain and North Africa in the Middle ages were the battle field of the religious fight between Europe and Muslims, or between Islam and Christianity as they used to say during the crusaders and al Jihad. It was not the same case of Indonesia in the Middle ages.


The Sufi Muslim Indonesians have become fanatic in the modern time because two different reasons: The Wahabi Saudi influence and the Christian European colonist in the entire Muslim Worl1:place> and its allies. Abdel Aziz saw this and made a strategic decision to distance himself from the Ikhwan, thereby keeping his kingdom secure by avoiding conflict with the British.

 

This was the first time the Saudi political authority and its religious authority were at odds. Al Ikhwan, who believed in a continuous Jihad, condemned Abdel Aziz.  They accused him of being an accomplice of idolaters [the Egyptians] and the infidels [the British].  Abdel Aziz tried to eliminate this dissension but the Ikhwan used their Wahabi teachings to bolster their condemnation of Abdel Aziz, calling on statements made by Wahabism’s founder and the oldest imams, Ibn Taymeya and Ibn Hanbal.

Abdel Aziz was unable to reform the Wahabi dogma after the fanatic Wahabis revolted against him [1928-1929]

It was clear even in the early 1900s that Wahabi doctrine needed reforming, but the helpless Saudi scholars were incompetent at doing so. There was a peaceful attempt to reunite Abdel Aziz and his Ikhwan in Riyadh conferences in 1927 and 1928; but it failed to head off a brewing conflict.

 

Abdel Aziz had to fight his own brothers [Ikhwan], and defeated them in 1929. But he could not defeat their dogma, nor could he reform it. So the problem was left unsolved for decades, until the present day.  This is how it has become a danger to the Indonesia. The Wahabi factor needs some explanation.


Abdel Aziz, son of Abdel Rahman [Ibn Saud], founded the third Saudi State – which exists to this day -- with the help of fanatic guerrilla soldiers known as Al Ikhwan, or “The Brothers”.  For more than 20 years the Ikhwan fought for Abdel Aziz to reestablishing the Saudi State, [1905 – 1925].  It was ultimately named the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932.  The Ikhwan, who were lawless, tough Bedouins, were steeped in Wahabi dogma, believing it to be the real forgotten Islam, to be enforced with swords and Jihad.

Abdel Aziz saw this and made a strategic decision to distance himself from the Ikhwan, thereby keeping his kingdom secure by avoiding conflict with the British.


Saudi State, the Muslim World and the Western World as well.

 

Abdel Aziz ignored reformation for another day, and chose instead to protect his new state from its internal and external enemies.  Shiite Muslims stood at the borders in Iran, Iraq, and Syria and in Yemen; they also were inside the Kingdom, in the Eastern region and in Al Hejaz. 

 

 

 

The King’s plan was to focus on non-Shiites:  He wanted to persuade all Sufis to convert to Wahabism, especially in Egypt and India, home to the biggest oppressed Sunni and Sufi populations.  He would then use Wahabi doctrine as a religious motive to revolt against their Christian oppressor, the British Empire.

 

Once Abdel Aziz took control of Al Hejaz and the Sacred Mosques 1925, he had the perfect opportunity to recruit his converts and spread the Wahabi faith.

  


This was the first time the Saudi political authority and its religious authority were at odds. Al Ikhwan, who believed in a continuous Jihad, condemned Abdel Aziz.  They accused him of being an accomplice of idolaters [the Egyptians] and the infidels [the British].  Abdel Aziz tried to eliminate this dissension but the Ikhwan used their Wahabi teachings to bolster their condemnation of Abdel Aziz, calling on statements made by Wahabism’s founder and the oldest imams, Ibn Taymeya and Ibn Hanbal.

Returning to the early 20th century, Abdel Aziz found it easy to recruit Indian Muslims to his plan.  They hated the British and the majority of their fellow Indians; and they found in the Wahabism the justification to revolt and divide India into two countries.  Thus Pakistan was created as one of the greatest mistakes of the 20th century.  Pakistan, with the help of the Saudi State and its [Madaris] or Islamic schools created the Taliban, which later took over Afghanistan.

 

 Instead of modernizing Wahabism after his clash with his Saudi [Ikhwan], Abdel Aziz preferred to export Wahabi teachings in their original medieval form to the rest of the Muslim world; this created bloody religious turmoil from Algeria to Indonesia and from Sudan to Russia, and finally to the West and the U.S.

Following Abdel Aziz, his sons, King Saud, Faisal, Khaled and Fahd have maintained Wahabism in their kingdom; spurred by new oil wealth, they aspired to make their owned family-state the leader of the entire Muslim World.  Because of political and economic interests, the West -- especially the U.S. – accommodated this Saudi policy.

According to the Quran, all the universe was created by the Almighty God just to test the man in this life, so after the end of this test of this life, God will destroy all the earth and the heavens and create the eternal world for the Day of Judgment and the eternal Paradise for the winners and eternal torture for the losers. That is why God gives the human being the unlimited freedom of speech and the total freedom of belief in this life. He will be responsible before God only on that Judgment Day. When man reflects the total freedom he has, and how God creates and subjugates this universe to him, he will recognize the big responsibilities he carries in this life.

Read as Examples: [11:7] [18: 7- 8] [67: 1 2] and [14: 48] [41: 40 to 42] [18: 29- 31] [17:107] [84: 1 to 12].

 

 

 

2-The Muslim research has the common Muslim ideas about the interpretations of the Quran and the Quranic translations. This needs some corrections.

The human translations and interpretations always reflect the human mentality and its different circumstances, so the translation or the interpretation has the name of its writer and belong to him, not to the God or His Quran.

The Quran never needs [oNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt 0.25in">The Quran never needs [Tafseer] or interpretation. Actually, the word “The Quranic interpretation or Tafseer” insults the Quran and in the same time it means disbelief in its verses.

According to the Quran it has its own Tafseer or interpretation inside it [25; 33]. It means you can understand the Quran by the Quran itself. Imam Ibn Katheer in the introduction of his Tafseer said: The best way is to interpret the Quran by the Quran. The Quran is [Mathani] as it is mentioned in the Quran itself: [15: 87] [39: 23] it means every Quranic meaning has been repeated twice and more inside the Quran. It is easy to follow all the verses in the same subject in the whole Quran and to read and understand the Quranic words according to the Quranic codes, idioms and terminology, not by the Muslim traditions codes. This way is the Islamic duty in dealing with the Quran. It is called [tadabbor] Read about this Quranic terminology in these verses: [4: 82] [47:24] [23:68] [38: 29].

 

If any one searches in the Quran in that way he will find the Quranic truth as long as he is looking for the Quranic truth faithfully without any previous traditional concepts. God confirms in hundreds verses that the Quran is [Mobeen] and it verses are [Bayyenat][mobayyanat][ Mofassal] and all the Quran was [Moyassar Lel zikr], means the Quran is clear ,explicit, distinct, manifest, has many details and very easy to be understood. Describing the Quran as [Mobeen] or clear has been repeated more than twenty times in the Quranic verses.

Muslim scholars in the Middle ages used their Tafseer to distort the Quranic meanings according to their egos.

Ibn Katheer himself in his Tafseer or interpretation did not apply this way in spite of recommending it in the introduction of his Tafseer. It is easy to understand the reason. Muslims have already established their different religious life for many centuries on these bases of Tafseer and Hadeeth or the sayings attributed to the prophet Mohammed some centuries after his death. The Quranic way of understanding the Quran or [Tadabbor] will clear the absent Quranic values and the Islamic faith and endanger the situations of different Muslim sects and authorities.

However, Al Tafseer and Al Hadeeth are the clear evidences of the contradiction between Muslims and Islam; they also reflect their mentality and culture.

Finally, the researcher Said “God said: ‘Let there be’ and it was. And creation is not an act that happened once, but a continuous process.” If he claims this to be a Quranic verse, he will be wrong. There is no Quranic verse said so literally. May be he is confused by the meanings of these Quranic verses:[6 :73][16: 40][19: 35][36: 82] and these other Quranic verses:[16: 8 17 20][5 17][24 45][28 86][30 45][39 4 6][42 49][43 16].

Man was really completed in the best image: [40: 64] [64: 3] [82: 6 - 8]. This includes all the creation of the Almighty Creator who said in the Quran: “He perfected every thing He created.”[32:7].

The real aim of thesof these kinds of travel is to let the man have a good belief in His Almighty God. However, Travel becomes absolute Islamic duty if the Muslim is persecuted because of his faith and religion. [4:97-98]

 

The student mentions this Hadeeth, or the saying attributed to the prophet Mohammed some centuries after his death. It says: “Who has come to know himself, he has already come to know God”. This is a fabricated Hadeeth, said by the some Muslim philosophies, and was denied by many conservative Middle aged scholars. However, it expresses the insights of some Muslims, but it is a disputable opinion. According to the Quran, [51:21] man is ordered to discover the marvelous creation inside himself; his body, his mind and his abilities to recognize the unlimited power of the Almighty God inside our selves, not to say that we can know God Himself, because God is beyond our limited reach and comprehension.

 

The write talks about the human love, but the student tries to make connection

 between it and the Sufi love, or their [fanaa] which means to unite themselves in the Almighty God. It is a far difference between the two kinds of love, as it also contradicts the original Islamic faith: There is no god but One God.

The human identity inside this mortal body is so near from us, it is us, but in the same times it is unknown to us. It is amazing to have inside your physical body this metaphysic unknown identity. This inner universe inside us is still the field of interesting from the ancient philosophy until now. This book has a new insight worthy to be contemplated. The Student gives his own insight from the available Muslim culture which needs correction.

 

According to the Quran, the human being is consisted of three parts: The mortal body, the self and unknown super identity which has the freedom of choice, so it can control the body and the self, or it can follow them. The human self in itself is suitable for good and evil and was inspired the two aspects together. But it is up to the super identity inside us to choose which way to uphold. [91: 7-10].

The human self in itself is suitable for good and evil and was inspired the two aspects together. But it is up to the super identity inside us to choose which way to uphold. [91: 7-10].


If this super identity chooses the good way and the guih blames the human being if he does something wrong or does not do the good thing he should do. This super identity always forbids the self from following its ego in order to purify it and to be winner in the Day of Judgment.

If this super identity chooses the bad way, it becomes [Ammarah] means advocate the bad and the wrong, following its ego and desire.

According to this choice man will be in the paradise or in the hell. [79:37 -41].

The bad self always tries to satisfy all the body needs and desires ignoring the high values which are the core of the real religion of God, like: chastity, decency, peace, Justice, total freedom of belief and speech and tolerance.

This man who is a victim of his own ego and his own lusts and vises is called in the Quran [Al Insan]. This is a unique Quranic terminology and code which is different from the common concept of Al Insan in the Arabic and Muslim culture, and even the international culture if we translate this Quranic idiom of Insan as a [Human].

 

Man has many idioms and codes in the Quran. It include [Al Nas] or people, [Bany Adam] means the children of Adam.[Bashar] means mankind, [Ins] means the human being in the relationship with the Jinn, and finally[ Al Insan] which has a body and self and inclined to be misled by his ego and his body.

When we follow all the Quranic verses that include the word [Al Insan] we find all the bad aspects of the human being. If he did not reform himself, or if the super identity inside him failed to reform his [Ammarah] self, he will die and come in dance, the self becomes [Lawwamah] means the good conscience which blames the human being if he does something wrong or does not do the good thing he should do. This super identity always forbids the self from following its ego in order to purify it and to be winner in the Day of Judgment.

But if he purifies himself and control his ego and maintain the righteous and good deeds and the real belief in God and the Day after, he will not be {Insan} in the day of resurrection, he will be [Nafs Motma’ennah] means secure and content self.

From Human Being to Being Human.

The Creative Dialectic in Rabbi Heschel’s thought.

John H. Morgan

 

It is right to say: “The more they have, the deeper their feeling of lack of freedom.” This explain –exactly- the human being –or [Al Insan] in the Quranic terminology- when he is enslaved by his lusts and desires. The real freedom in Islam is to be enslaved by God alone by your own choice. Because there is only one God, you will be really free man. As you obey only one God, you should uphold [Al Taqwa], means to fear and worship and adore God alone. It means also to subjugate your body to your God’s orders and teachings. All the Islamic duties have one object: [Al Taqwa] or to make the human able to control his body, his lusts and desires according to the God’s commandments. So, [Al Mottaqoun] only, not all the believers, not all the Muslif the super identity inside him failed to reform his [Ammarah] self, he will die and come in the Judgment Day carrying the brand name of [Insan], means he could not purify himself in this world. But if he purifies himself and control his ego and maintain the righteous and good deeds and the real belief in God and the Day after, he will not be {Insan} in the day of resurrection, he will be [Nafs Motma’ennah] means secure and content self.

 It is also right to say:” Our life is not our own property.” because we are owned by our Almighty God. As a test, we are given this mortal body and the ability to control this universe and the total freedom to obey God or to disobey him. On the Judgment Day, the winners will be only those who obeyed God and applied His commandments in dealing with God, and in dealing with their bodies, with their societies and their environments.

 

So, it is true to say that man is the master of his own destiny- if we talk about the destiny of the Last Day or Judgment Day. Man has the total freedom of choice to believe or to disbelieve, to obey or to disobey. If he decides to be the winner in the Day of Judgment, he will be so as long he chooses to obey His Only Lord. God will not disappoint him because it is His promise, and God never breaks His promises. [3: 9- 194][13: 31][39: 20][4:122][10: 4][14:22]

However, this life has not a real destiny as it is short period of life and will be terminated by the inevitable death. But talking to those who are concentrating on this life alone, they will be disappointed to know- according to the Quran- that the hu lusts and desires according to the God’s commandments.

However, this life has not a real destiny as it is short period of life and will be terminated by the inevitman being has nothing to do with the four basic issues of his life: His birth, his death, his wealth or poverty; or in the Quranic term [Al Rizq], and the crises he has to face and suffer during his life time.

 

According to the Quran; God has predestinated only four things for every      human being in this world: his birth, his death, the crises and the sustenance. All these dimensions of every human being are belonging to The One God alone, and to His knowledge and His measure which are unknown to us.          If we control those four dimensions, every one of us will have all what he needs; the longest happiest, richest healthiest life, and may be without death. Simply, every one wants to be millionaire, but every one is not a millionaire, even the millionaire of today he does not guarantee to be a millionaire for the next year or the next month. You may plan to go here and there, or to do some perfect thing, but you do not be sure of the result, because you are not alone in this world, and you do not control every thing in it. Your interest is interfering or contradicting with the others, who are different from you in their abilities, and attitudes. Finally, all the unexpected events are controlled by God, including the events that happen by us to us, or to inflict us. No one can avoid or change those four inevitable things of birth, death, crises, and sustenance. 

God is the only One who shapeable death.

During this life, the sustenance for every alive being is prepared and guaranteed by God. Through different means, the alive beings are themselves included in these means. 

This sustenance means the food and other things that keep the life inside the alive being until his death. It includes those means of living and their changes, and the changes that happen to the creature during his life, all of them are written in God’s eternal  Book before this world.[11: 6][6: 151][17:31][29 :60] 

Every misfortune, sickness illness, infectious disease, accident, calamity, and disaster is predestined by God before this world, so no one can harm or benefit you unless according to what was written before our lives.[9: 51][57: 22-23][64 :11] 

The fatalism in Islam is limited in the realm of these four dimensions only; but this is not the only difference between the predestination of the Quran and the fatalism of the Sunni Muslim. In the Quran, no one knows the unseen, or what will happen in the future,[10:20][27:65]7:187-188][6:50][46:9] and every one has the total freedom to do what he10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"> 


God is the only One who shapes our features, defines our parents, and the date and the place of our birth. He is the only One who knows the time and the place of our death or killing, and our age in this life.[7 :11][3: 6][35 :11][41:47][13 :8][3 :154-158][4:78][62: 8][31: 34]. 


During this life, the sustenance for every alive being is prepared and guaranteed by God. Through different means, the alive beings are themselves included in these means.

The fatalism in Islam is limited in the realm of these four dimensions only; but this is not the only difference between the predestination of the Quran and the fatalism of the wants to do, to think and believe what he wants to believe. Therefore, many people choose to disbelieve in The One God, while many other people add to the one God some gods according to their belief. What is usually happening in the realm of religions is the strongest prove that the human being has the total freedom of choice, not only in his secular life, but also in his religious life, even it’s against the will of God Himself. God Said in the Quran:”If you disbelieve, God is in no need of you, and He dislike for His servants disbelief. But if you are appreciative, then He is pleased for you. No one is responsible for anyone else’s sins. To your Lord is your final return; then He will inform you of every thing you did? He is fully aware of the innermost intentions.”[39:7].This is the total freedom of choice.  In the same time, this human being does not know the unseen and what will happen in the future, therefore he decides and acts freely in his usual life, and faces these predestinations knowingly or unknowingly.

According to the Quran, any one is not responsible before God about these four predestinations, but every one is responsible before God about all his deeds beyond this limit, where he has the total freedom to obey or not, to believe or not, to do good deeds or bad deeds. As a believer one, he recognizes his freedom of choice, and in the same time he believes that God does not break His promises.

This is a Quranic fact, repeated in the Quran. [2:80] [3:9] [13:31] [22:47] [30:6]Sunni Muslim. In the Quran, no one knows the unseen, or what will happen in the future,[10:20][27:65]7:187-188][6:50][46:9] and every one has the total freedom to do what he wants to do, to think and believe what he wants to believe.

As a believer one, he recognizes his freedom of choice, and in the same time he believes that God does not break His promises.


This is a Quranic fact, repeated in the Quran. [2:80] [3:9] [13:3120:39]. So, any one can decide to be in the paradise if he chooses to believe in God alone and in the last day, and maintain the good deeds. This decision is up to the human, not to God, and God will fulfill His promise.

The believer should recognizes these facts, and acts accordingly. He should have all the courage, act bravely, obeying God, putting his trust in Him, because no one can harm him or benefit him unless according to what God has predestined to him before this life, and no one can kill him before or after the specific time and the condition of death predestined by God.

It is wrong – according to the Quran- to believe in the Divine part inside us coming from God, or the soul of man are candles of the Lord, or to say that man is partner of God, or God needs man. All of these are against the Islamic faith of monotheism.

However, many Muslims believe in these aspects, and Muslim tradition has reflected them in many sayings attributed to the prophet Mohammed some centuries after his death.

The student himself brings one of these saying: “I was a hidden treasure and I wish to be known, and therefore I created man.”

The student denies that man is a partner of God, but he- the student says: God is always at our disposal.

[3] Muslims and the door of reconciliation

Prof: Philip Sheldrake

 

Prof. Sheldrake has noble ideas but they are not enough to make reconciliation. Reconciliation itself is not enough. The magic word is not reconciliation, it is reform. To reform something or some one you have to examine or to study the case carefully to give the real cure. Let us try to do it now asking the U.N and the U.S to move towards reform Muslim Arabic World peacefully.

The Aspects of Actual Life in Arab Muslim World.

A. Dictatorship

The actual political and social life is terrible. Inside the regimes, dictatorships control all the aspects of life, terrorizing the people under the name of hegemony and awe of the state. The troops of army and security are used to ensure the security of the dictator and his elders along with the legislation, judicial system, media, education, economics, and the official religious and cultural aes that man is a partner of God, but he- the student says: God is always at our disposal. This sentence could be said about your human partner, not about your Almighty Lord; the only God.

The Aspects of Actual Life in Arab Muslim World.


A. Dictatorship


The actual political and social life is terrible. Inside the regimes, dictatorships control all the aspects of life, terrorizing the people under the name of hegeuthorities.  

B. The fanatic trend

Those dictatorships need the religious terrorist opposition in some degree to use it politically to scare the people, to prolong martial law, and to make their potential substitute worse than them. Their rationale is “Ok. We are bad, but they are the worst, so who is better?”

Actually, the religious fanatic opposition is the worst. The current dictatorships may kill or imprison the active oppositions for political reasons, but the religious dictatorship kills, stones, and amputates all its enemies and dooms them to be the enemies of God who should be sent to hell.

The dangerousness of this trend is not only in its secret or public organizations, but in its religious culture which claims the name of Islam. This culture is sponsored by the regimes and their official religious leaders and foundations.

 Between the dictatorships and their religious opposition, there is a weak, vulnerable secular opposition, adopting the western discourse which alienates this trend more beside the continuous disputes among them, even inside every party or center. Outside these dictatorships there is the international community represented mainly by the US, and the UN.

C. The UN policy

The UN represents the regimes, not the peoples, so every dictator has his seat in the UN as the representative of his state and his people, even when he may be the real enemy of his people. That makes the UN and its foundations unable to support democracy in the third world unless the US pressure directs the UN to act against some dictators who are enemies of the US.  

D. The US policy endangers the US itself

The US and its foreign policy are responsible for the turmoil in the Middle East. Under the motto of fighting the communists in the Islamic world, and specifically in US, and the UN.

D. The US policy endangers the US itself


The US and its foreign policy areace>Afghanistan, the US sponsored the fanatic Wahaby culture, which produced Osama Ibn Laden and terrorist organizations all over the world. Under the name of stability, the US helps its allied dictators who use US aid in subjugating their peoples and direct public anger toward the US instead of their own corruption and tyranny.

Their political culture is the “complex of the American conspiracy” against Islam and the Arabs. All the crises are explained as the American conspiracy against the peoples. This culture of conspiracy prevents any hope of reform from the inside, at the same time tarnishing the US image and making it the first enemy which should be fought.

As it is impossible to defeat the US in the usual war, it’s possible to kill the civilian American by terrorist operations. This is their reaction to the complexit responsible for the turmoil in the Middle East.

As it is impossible to defeay of conspiracy.

The collapse of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians adds another rage against America, which is accused by Arabs as being the ally of the Israeli occupation of Arab lands. Finally it makes the US the battlefield of the third world war that began after 9-11.  

Positive Aspects 

This is the sad reality of political life in the Middle East and North Africa, but the picture as a whole has some positive aspects.  

A. Weakness inside the fanatic trend

The fanatic religious trend is active and effective, but its mighty power covers these objective reasons for weakness:

Positive Aspects 


This is the sad reality of political life in the Middle East and North Africa, but the picture as a whole has some positive aspects.  


A. Weakness inside the fanatic trendHe is a reaction of dictatorship and corruption, now action in itself that means when the reform is established; he will lose his motives and power. He belongs to the Middle Age’s tradition and culture, meaning he is out of our time, and will be dismissed by the up-to-date, mighty culture sooner or later.  

He generates his power from the name of Islam, while faith, culture, and manner contradict Islam. He needs authorities to protect his ideology and to confiscate the other Islamic ideologies. In any free society he will be exposed and lose his connection with Islam and its leaders will be just criminals.  

B. The majority are ready for reform

The majority of the populations are under 40 years old. Most of them are educated, deprived, confused, and eager to know the right thing. They believe in Islam as the religion of the peace, freedom, and justice. They are acquainted with their corrupt regimes and they become in touch with the modern world by modern systems of communication and information. They are ready to understand, or even move, but the terrorist regimes are curbing them.

He is a reaction of dictatorship and corruption, now action in itself that means when the reform is established; he will lose his motives and power. He belongs to the Middle Age’s tradition and culture, meaning he is out of our time, and will be dismissed by the up-to-date, mighty culture sooner or later.  


He generates his power from the name of Islam, while faith, culture, and manner contradict Islam. He needs authorities to protect his ideology and to confiscate the other Islamic ideologies. In any free society he will be exposed and lose his connection with Islam and its leaders will be just criminals.  


B. The majority are ready for reform


The majority of the populations are under 40 years old. Most of them are educated, deprived, confused, and eager to know the right thing. They believe in Islam as the religion of the peace, freedom, and justice. They are acquainted with their corrupt regimes and they become in touch with the modern world by modern systems of communication and information. They are ready to understand, or even move, but the terrorist regimes are curbing them.

A. the role of the UN

The United Nations has changed its attitude in some parts of the world due to the influence of the US, but it needs to change its policy and principles to match the 21st century culture.

The rules of not interfering in other state’s interior affairs, and/or the principle of the sovereignty of states have to be changed. In the past, they have served the independence of weak states against the powerful states and the influence of hegemony. Now it serves the hegemony of the dictators who enslave their people. It’s not the sovereignty of the state of the people, but the sovereignty of individuals who subject their peoples and nations. 

As a result of their tyranny, their oppositions endanger the world security in the global village of our time. Accordingly, the UN’s charter should be more effective in protection of the high values of the UN itself and its covenant and principles of human rights.  

Precisely, the UN must sponsor the peaceful democratic transition disappear after some decades and bloodshed. They may disappear quickly and peacefully. It depends on the US policy and the UN’s attitude.

Protect the activists of human rights, democracy, and civil society.  

Create an international court to judge any dictator and his elders who commit torture, persecution, election rigging, and ruling his people by continuous emergency and martial laws.

All of this could be tackled by the UN with the help of the US.                       But there is an urgent peaceful role should be done by the U.N and U.S together; it’s the independent free TV Arabic Channels.

This absent Islamic discourse could be easily understood by Arabs and Muslims, and could be easily prove the contradiction between Islam and the culture of terrorism and dictatorship, this culture which is sponsored by the tyrants and the fanatics as well. The tyrants use their own media to brainwash the masses and to confine the free leaders and to glorify their images. This kind of media may help the dictator who is in the power now, but in the future it will create an ardent fanatic generation, which may destroy itself and the world together.            

This coming menace could be easily deleted by the free independent Arabic Muslim Channels. The U.N and The U.S can sponsor these channels for the world’s fair.

Al Hajj is religious duty should be done by any peaceful human being who is able to do it.

Al Hajj is the most famous aspect of Abraham religion or according to the Quranic terminology [Millat Ebraheem] for all the man kind, and the Jews and the Christians in particular. This is very obvious when we read these Quranic verses: [2: 125] [3: 93 to 97] [22: 25 to 29].

However, the mighty tribe of Quraysh used to use Al Hajj according to its policy and interest. They prevented Muslims and the prophet Mohammed from Al Hajj, [5: 2] [48:25] [8:34-36] [22: 25]. After the prophet Mohammed, the same tribe used the name of Islam to establish the great Arab Muslim Empire. In this Empire, the religious rules were decreed to prevent the non Muslims from Al Hajj, ignoring that Muslim in the Quranic terminology- in dealing with people- means any peaceful one regardless of his faith or affinity, and [Al Moshrik] or the idol worshipper- in dealing with people- is the OM: 12pt">and believe.

Let’s explain this:-


Al Hajj is religious duty on every human being, not only Muslims.

Please read this meaning in these Quranic verses [9: 1 to 14-28]

Muslims have violated this generality of Al Hajj

It is prohibited- in Muslim tradition- for any Christian or Jews to make Al Hajj if he wants to do it. More over, they claim in their false Hadeethes that the prophet Mohammed ordered to clear the Arab Peninsula from any Christian and Jew. This is a false because the Arab Christian and Jewish tribes used to live in their Arabic land during the Omawy dynasty, before fabricating this Hadeeth which was attributed to the prophet Mohammed two centuries after the Omawy time.

Al Hajj could be done during the four sacred moths, not on one week only

Muslims come to Al Hajj to make it in specific short days before the tenth day of the Arabic month named” Zol Hijjah”. In this short time- known in the Quranic terminology as “Al Hajj Al Akbar”- millions of them are jammed and crammed in one place to practice the same rituals in the same time in chaos and jumbling that cause death for hundreds every year.

It is reasonable to say that they should perform Al Hajj in any time during months in which every one can go and make Al Hajj in one week and return home to avoid this chaos and trouble25].

Al Hajj could be done during the four sacred moths, not on one week only


Muslims come to Al Hajj to make it in specific short days before the tenth day of the Arabic month named” Zol Hijjah”. In this short time- known in the Quran. This is reasonable from Islamic perspective because God said:” God intends for you the ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you:” [2:185]. As a Quranic fact: Islamic laws aims to lighten the hardships and to ease the difficulties: [4: 28] [5:3-6] [73: 20] [22: 78] [24: 61] [48:17]

It is not only reasonable, but it is the real Quranic rules that confirm theses verses. According to the Quran, the time designed for al Hajj is four months in which you can make Al Hajj any time during them. God says in the Quran: “Al Hajj is the well known months [Al Hajjo Ashorn Ma’lomat]. So, whosoever intends to perform Al Hajj therein, he should not have sexual relations, nor commit sin, nor dispute during Al Hajj.”[2: 197].

These are the four Arabic lunar months which are the sacred months in Islam named [Al Ashhor Al horom]. In these four months, it is prohibited to wage war or to fight, or to commit any wrong.  Arabs before Islam used to recognize these sacred months as an important aspect of the religion of Abraham, so God described these months as [Ashhorn Ma’lomat] means well known months by Arabs. But they used to violate them also by changing them according to their ego and continuous fights. So, God blamed them in the Quran. [9: 36 and 37] 

[Al Hajj Al Akbar] is only the opening of the religious duty of Al Hajj in the first nine days of these foic terminology as “Al Hajj Al Akbar”- millions of them are jammed and crammed in one place to practice the same rituals in the same time in chaos and jumbling that cause death for hundreds every year.

These are the four Arabic lunar months which are the sacred months in Islam named [Al Ashhor Al horom]. In these four months, it is prohibited to wage war or to fight, or to commit any wrong.  Arabs before Islam used to recognize these sacred months as an important aspect of the religion of Abraham, so God described these months as [Ashhorn Ma’lomat] means well known months by Arabs. But they used to violate them ur months which are: [Zol Hejja- Moharram, Safar and Rabeea Al Awwal] but you can perform Al Hajj any time, after this festival of opening to the end of the last fourth month known [Rabee’a Al Awwal] or fourth the first.

To make it easier for pilgrimages who come from far places [22: 27] God gives them two days exception before the opening, means the last two days of the Arabic month of [Zol K’edah]. Also God gives them another two days exception after the end of the sacred months, means after the fourth month of [Rabe’e Al Awwal] or Rabe’e the first, so they can make Al Hajj after its time during the fifth Arabic month, or the next month after the fourth sacred month which name is [Rabe’e Al Awwal]. So the fifth month has the same name of Rabe’e’ but with an addition [Rabe’e Al Thany] means the fourth the second. Any one who comes early, he can make Al Hajj two days before the beginning of its regular time on the beginning of the four sacred months. Any one who comes lately , he can performs Al Hajj two day after the last fourth sacred month, but on one condition: to maintain [Al Taqwa] or to be righteous.[2: 203]

Finally, the Quranic terminology [Al Hajj al Akbar] or the greatest Hajj means only the opening of Al Hajj, but you can make Al Hajj during all the four sacred months and also two days before them and two days after them.

Al Hajj Al Akbar was the real opening of the Arabic lunar calendar which used to be the month of “Zo Al hijjah”, means the month of the opening of Al Hajj. It used to be the first month of the Muslim Arabic calendar, then the other three sacred months follow it.[ They are Moharram, Safar, Rabee’e Awwal].You can understand this if you&nbalso by changing them according to their ego and continuous fights. So, God blamed them in the Quran. [9: 36 and 37] 


[Al Hajj Al Akbar] is only the opening of the religious duty of Al Hajj in the first nine days of these four months which are: [Zol Hejja- Moharram, Safar and Rabeea Al Awwal] but you can perform Al Hajj any time, after this festival of opening to the end of the last fourth month known [Rabee’a Al Awwal] or fourth the first.

Also God gives them another two days exception after the end of the sacred months, means after the fourth month of [Rabe’e Al Awwal] or Rabe’e the first, so they can make Al Hajj after its time during the fifth Arabic month, or the next month after the fourth sacred month which name is [Rabe’e Al Awwal]. So the fifth month has the same name of Rabe’e’ but with an addition [Rabe’e Al Thany] means the fourth the second. Any one who comes early, he can make Al Hajj two days before the beginning of its regular time on the beginning of the four sacred months. Any one who comes lately , he can performs Al Hajj two day after the last fourth sacred month, but on one condition: to maintain [Al Taqwa] or to be righteous.[2: 203]


Finally, the Quranic terminology [Al Hajj al Akbar] or the greatest Hajj means only the opening of Al Hajj, but you can make Al Hajj during all the four sacred months and also two dayssp; read carefully these verses:[9: 1-2-3-5].

Muslims have ignored the sacred months and changed them

 In their history after the prophet Mohammed, Arab Muslims have ignored the sacred months and used to fight each other and the other nations during the sacred months. Only during the civil war between Ali; the fourth ruler after the prophet Mohammed, and Mo’aweyah, there was cease fire to respect the sacred months, but after that, the Omawy dynasty used to fight its Muslim oppositions and invade other countries in the name of Islam, during the sacred months and other months too. Even the Sacred mosque in Mecca they violated its holy place and destroyed Al Ka’abah, when they attacked it twice, during the rule of Yazeed, son of Moaweyah, and Marawan son of Al Hakam.

All of these violations happened just five decades after the death of the prophet Mohammed, and committed by people most of them were [Sahabat Al Nabi] or the companions of the prophet Mohammed. It has become easier for the coming Muslim generations to follow them because the civil wars and the military insurrections have continued until now inside the Muslim World and between Muslims and other nations and countries. In this continuous wars Muslims forget every thing about the sacred months, even they forget their real names and changed the Arabic lunar calendar to begin with Moharram, not Zol Hijja, and make the four sacred months the following months : Ragab, Zol Hijja Moharram and Safar instead of: Zol Hijja, Moharram, Safar and Rabe’e Al Awwal.< before them and two days after them.

Why did Muslims make Al Hajj in one week only?

It is the same reason; the continuous war between them.

The Arabic tribes in the desert around Mecca used to attack and plunder the pilgrimages caravans in their ways from Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Sometimes these tribes, when they became [Khawarej] or religious rebellious, used the name of Islam in attacking and killing the peaceful [Hujjaj] or pilgrims.

It was necessary to protect the pilgrimage caravans by an army led by generals named the leaders of Al Hajj or the princes of Al Hajj or [Ameer al Hajj]. It was necessary also to gather all the pilgrims of every country in one caravan, and to unite the season of Al Hajj in one week to protect the lives of the pilgrims.

Some Muslim Emperors in the Omawy and Abbasy dynasties used to come to make Al Hajj in that specific time to address peoples from different regions and to meet the governors of their states.

In spite of all the different armies, the wild Arabic nomads used to attack the pilgrimage caravans, especially in the time of weakness of the central capitals of Baghdad, or Cairo. This added a new ritual in Al Hajj; to shorten the five daily prayers as the journey of Al Hajj is full of dangers. However, this tradition of shorten the season of Al Hajj from four months to be only one week is follow them because the civil wars and the military insurrections have continued until now inside the Muslim World and between Muslims and other nations and countries.

The real meaning of Al Hajj

 God has appointed his only one sacred place exactly in the mid point of this earth, or the very center of the earth. In this place, the first religious house for mankind to worship the One God was built to be the first one on this earth, [3: 96]. It is “Al Bayt Al Ateeq.” means the oldest and the most ancient house of worship on the earth. [22: 29-33].

After the prophet Noah and many other prophets and generations God ordered Abraham-who lived in Iraq- to go to the place of the sacred mosque in the desert - known after that as the Arabic desert- and appointed it to him, and ordered him to rebuilt it and purify it to the worshippers and to call the people to make Al Hajj. [2: 125 to 130][22: 26 to 29]

On the center of this place “Al K’abah” shrine or the four walls were built to appoint the center of this earth. Around this squared small building, there was a large place for worshipping the only one God in His House. Mecca is the city which has been built around the holy mosque.

From this center of the earth the final prophet was born and the final Divine message; the holy Quran was revealed for all the mankind from this time to the end of this world.

God also said about the sacred mosque:” Which we have appointed to all people as equally; the dweller in it and the visitor, and whoever intend to do evil action and unjust, we shall cause him to taste from painful torment.” [22:25], so the bad intention is forbidden during Al Hajj to keep the heart clean and pure.

So, the believer in Al Hajj must abandon the permissible sexual relationship with his wife, the permissible dispute and argument with other people, any kind of sin, and to fear God who knows every thing, and maintain righteousness for the Day of Judgment. [2: 197].


God also said about the sacred mosque:” Which we have appointed to all people as equally; the dweller in it and the visitor, and whoever intend to do evil action and unjust, we shall cause him to taste from painful torment.” [22:25], so the bad intention is forbidden during Al Hajj to keep the heart clean and pure.                                                                                              &nbsARGIN-BOTTOM: 12pt">It is up to him to decide to pay or not because it is he who knows if he was intentionally does it or no. It is a test to teach Muslim during Al Hajj how to purify his heart. God Says in this regard:”O you who believe! God will make a trial of you with something in the game that is within the reach of your hands and your lances, that God may test him who fears Him unseen. Then whoever transgresses thereafter, for him there is a painful torment.”[5 94]

It confirms here that the human heart must be pure to be in harmony with the sacred place and the sacred time. This is the meaning of “Al Ihram”, or the period in which the pilgrim is performing the ritual of Al Hajj.

Submission, the key word.

In this harmony that gathers the place, the time and the human heart or soul, the believer chooses willingly to submit his heart, his body his feeling to his only One God. God said:” To Him submitted all creatures in the heavens and in the earth, willingly and unwillingly.”[3: 83]. 

As it is very difficult to maintain this submission all the days and years, the Islamic rituals are reminders. The five prayers remind us every day five times. Fasting Ramadan reminds us one month every year, the four sacred months remind us for four months every year, and then Al Hajj reminds us one time-or more during our life time. All these rituals have only one aim; is to enable the believer to be righteous and to enable him to maintain the most difficult thing in his life; the total submission to p;   


In the sacred mosque of God, all the creatures of God should enjoy peace, the pilgrim is prevented from killing any alive creature, even the ant in his hair, so, the pilgrim usually shave or cut short his hair before Al Ihram, or performing Al Hajj ritual. If he intentionally kills a game during Al Hajj, the penalty is an offering; brought to the sacred mosque of an eatable animal equivalent to the game he killed [5: 95].


It is up to him to decide to pay or not because it is he who knows if he was intentionally does it or no. It is a test to teach Muslim during Al Hajj how to purify his heart.

The human being is the only creature in this physical universe that has the freedom of choice, while the entire universe and the other creatures are controlled directly by God, or totally submitted to God by its nature, without any choice. The human physical body is controlled by God, not by the human being who occupies it. You could not control your liver, kidney and lungs while you can-according to your freedom of choice-obey or disobey God, submit yourself to Him or rebel against Him.

 

 

Total submission of universe and the pilgrims

Al Hajj gives the human being the chance to perform the same total submission to the One God. To know the total submission to the Almighty creator, think about the atom and inside it, and the sun and its planets, and the stars inside their galaxies. They have the same system in the total submission to the One God.

If the electrons are neutral the pilgrims are also neutral, if the electrons have a negative charge, the pilgrims are forbidden from the permissible sexuality and the permissible argument; means have only negative charge. It is the same submission to the creator, but in one difference, the believer is doing this willingly according to his own freedom of choice.

If you look at the picture of the pilgrims in their circles around Al Ka’aba where every one of them in the same color and the same special cloth of Al Ihram, so identical to one another that you cannot identify any one of them, you are really looking inside the atom where the electrons are circling around the nucleus while they are identical to one another to the extent that scientists have been unable to distinguish one electron from another. This picture illustrates the meaning of the submission to the One God. Islam in the Arabic language and the Quranic terminology- in dealing with God- mean submission. This is also the meaning of Al Hajj in the religion of Islam.

However, Muslims have distorted this meaning of Al Hajj as they also distorted the two meanings of Islam.

The electrons circle around the nucleus inside the atom in a series of orbits at different distances from the nucleus. In much the same way the planets orbit the sun, and the stars circle around the center of their galaxies.


You can look the same way at Al Hajj, where the believers come from different places to the very center of the earth; the sacred mosque of the One Only God, to perform the rituals of Al Hajj, means Al Ihram, in the way that their heart must be pure and in a full submission to their only Lord, circling around the Al Ka’abah; the nucleus of the earth, as the electrons circle around the nucleus of the atom, and as the planets circle around the stars and as the stars circle around the center of the galaxies.

d any meaning of idolizing its building or its stones. Islam is very sensitive in this issue of monotheism. It is absolutely forbidden to idolize any human; any stone any tomb and any temple or statue. Al Ka’aba is called “Al Bayt al Haram” means literally:  “the inviolable house”. This necessitates some specific rituals aim to teach the believer to maintain the high degree of monotheism in worshipping the only One God, not to worship the human made building of Al Ka’aba making it an idol of stone. In the same wrong way Muslims look at the black stone which identifies the beginning of the seven circles or circumambulations.

 

2-In Islam, there is the only One God, and the only One Sacred mosque of the Only One God, but Muslims have many sacred mosques, where they usually visit as a ritual pilgrimage. In every Muslim country, there are many of sacred tombs inside mosques, those tombs belong to famous Sufi or Shiites or Sunni saints and Imams and Sheikhs. However, the most sacred mosque among these building is the mosque of Al Madina which they usually visit it as a necessary ritual that complete Al Hajj, claiming that the prophet Mohammed is still alive inside his tomb in this mosque, and whoever make Al Hajj to him he will has the So Called intercession of the Mohammed on the Day of Judgment. This distorts their Hajj and their Islamic faith as well.

For example, they said the woman in her period or menstruation is prohibited from circumambulation around Al Ka’abah. They also said it is permissible to any Muslim to hire any one to make Al Hajj instead of him, or to make Al Hajj for his parents or any one else. It is wrong because all the rituals in Islam aim to purify the individual, so it has to do it by himself to clean his heart by his own effort for his own future in the Day of Judgment.

It is right to say: “We can say more about God by saying what He is not, than by trying to say what He is.” This brief sentence is not only right, but it is enough itself in this regard. More over, it is wrong to say the other sayings which contradict it. So this article consists of two sections; this right fare sentence and the other wrong sayings and their details and arguments. This if the writer wants to give his own argument. If he wants to gather the different opinions of Muslims in this regard, then he should point out the contradiction between this right sentence and the others.

 

Our brain is designed to search only in this physical material of this world. This world has many dimensions which are beyond our reach and our comprehension. It is not only in the outer space of the universe, but also in the inner space inside us and inside the alive cell. We can use the fire, the electricity, the magnetic power, the gravitation of the earth and the planets because God has subjugated them to us. But in the same time we can not understand their identities and their secrets.

If we are unable to search in some aspects of our world and even in our souls and the inner space inside us, can we search in the invisible world which is beyond our limit? Can we search the identity of the Almighty creator Himself?

This is the visible - witnessed world or [Aalam Al Shahadah]. The invisible world is called in the Quranic terminology [Aalam Al ghayb], or the unseen world. It is out of our reach and our comprehension and impossible for us to think about it or just imagine it by our brains which are influenced and limited by our visible world.

When you talk about what you do not know or what you do not figure your talk will be just delusions and illusions. As it is impossible to prove it physically, the different opinions will still different in this realm of emptiness. As the science can not reach it or prove it, it belongs to the realm of believe or superstitions. You may believe in it or not. According to the Quran, the only one who can talk about this invisible world is the creator of the visible and invisible worlds; the Almighty God in His final preserved guarded Quran. Any human information about this invisible world is just superstitions and nonsense. It becomes more than that if we talk about the Almighty God from our own ego and limited mind.

God says about Himself: “There is nothing like Him.”[42:11] .All the creations are things created by Him, nothing from all the creations looks like Him. All the characters and the descriptions of the things or the creatures are contradicting the identity of the Almighty God, Allah.

God, Allah talks to us in His Quran in the human Arabic language about this unseen world in a way that makes us understand. Any human language is unable to imagine or to figure the unseen. Any human vocabulary is unable to describe what is beyond its reachsion. It is not only in the outer space of the universe, but also in the inner space inside us and inside the alive cell.

According to the Quran, the only one who can talk about this invisible world is the creator of the visible and invisible worlds; the Almighty God in His final preserved guarded Quran. Any human information about this invisible world is just superstitions and nonsens and imagination. So, the Quran has its unique way in explaining this contradiction between the Almighty creator and His creations by using the same human Arabic language.

For example: we have a life and we are alive, so is the God. But to confirm the contradiction between our temporary short life and the eternal unknown life of the Almighty God, the Quran said; “And put your trust in the Ever Living One who dies not.”[25: 58]. “Allah- God-, there is no god but Him, The Ever Living, the Ever providence. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him.”[2: 255]

When the Quran talks about the lives of the creatures it gives another description: “He-God- brings the alive from the dead and brings out the dead from the living, and He revives the earth after its death.”[30:19]. the human description of life is used to describe the One God and also the creatures but with other descriptions to point out the contradiction here and there.

Sometimes the Quran uses the same Arabic word to give the contrary meanings here and there. The famous short Quranic Sura or chapter which confirms the monotheism says: “Say: He is Allah, One. Allah is the [only] Lord. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is no one equal to Him.” Here the Arabic word: One {Ahad} is used twice to confirm that Allah is one and to confirm that no one looks like Him. It is the same Arabic word [Ahad] but in contrary meanings.

[He] is the absent pronoun in the Arabic language for the masculine. It is used when we talk about some one who is not here. The Quran uses [He] in talking about Allah-God in the contrary way; to confirm that He is not absent but is with us wherever we are. For example: “He is with you we. It becomes more than that if we talk about the Almighty God from our own ego and limited mind.

Sometimes the Quran uses the same Arabic word to give the contrary meanings here and there. The famous short Quranic Sura or chapter whichheresoever you may be. And Allah is all seer of what you do.”[57: 4]Read also: [58: 7].

To know something about the Almighty God; Allah , you have to read the Quran according to it terminology, believing that Allah, the Almighty God is beyond your mind and your comprehension, but in the same time He is so near from you if you worship Him and devote your life to Him alone.[2 :186].

Muslims in their long history have wasted their time and energy in searching in the prohibited era, ignoring the Quranic teachings in this regards. More over, some of them attributed his ideas to the prophet Mohammed to make them sacred facts. So you may find different and contradicted sayings of the prophet Mohammed in the same subject.

 

As it is an empty way, the result is just a big zero. Therefore after many centuries you find Muslim are still disputing in the same issues while the modern world is searching in the inner space of atom and cell, and the outer space of the stars and galaxies.

 

Some Muslim intellectuals feel rejoiced when some new scientific facts discovered by the West and find some indication to them mentioned in the Quran. Some Muslim scientists devote their lives in this career proving how the Quran mentioned or indicated some important scientific facts 14 centuries before the current modern western civilization. They usually ignore this very question: Why the Muslim scholars in the Middle Ages ignored these Quranic scientific facts during all these centuries?

(6) Forgotten aspects of Islamic doctrine


It is absolutely wrong to say this title about the myth of intercession. The myth of intercession is an alive faith inside most of Muslims, so it is wrong to say it is forgotten aspect in Muslim religious life. Also, it is wrong to say it is an Islamic doctrine. Islam is against this faith of intercession.

There are more than 200 Quranic verses confirm that no human being will intercede before God for another one, but Muslim scholars twisted some Quranic verses and ignored most of them to establish this falsehood of the human intercession in the Day after. They  also attributed sayings to the prophet Mohammed claiming that he will intercede before God in the Day of Judgment, ignoring the Quranic fact that the prophet Mohammed did not know the future and was not allowed to talk about the unseen which he did not know.[6:50] [7 :187- 188][46: 9].

God is the only one who owns the Day of Judgment. Muslims usually say this [ Malik Yawm Al Deen] seventeen times in their daily prayers, but they do not believe in it, because they believe that Mohammed- not God; Allah- is the master of the Day of Judgment, and accordingly if God put some one in the hell, and Mohammed intercede for this one, God will change his mind and release this one from fire. 

This is not the real Day of Judgment mentioned in the Quran. According to the Quran in that day, it will be the pure, complete, absolute and the final justice.

In that great day, every one will be responsible for his own sin, not any one’s sins. God says in the Quran: “No burdened soul can bear the burdens of another, and every human being is responsible for what he does.” [53:38-39], also: [35:18] [17: 13-14-15]. The prophet Mohammed will deny and denounce his enemies who ignored the Quran and its clear facts [25 30 -31] while all the prophets and the messengers of God will confirm before God that they do not know any thing about their people.[5 106] and Jesus will deny those who worship him after his death[5 116 to 119].
