This Manipulation of God's Religion


This Manipulation of God's Religion

Translated by Ahmed Fathy


 We have received this email message recently from a young man who cares only for minor matters and disregards the major tenets and facts of our religion. Here's his message with his queries posed to us: (…what is your opinion about those who open PlayStations outlets rented for children with themes and ideas contrary to Islam? These games contain sexual scenes as well as swear words! Would you please clarify a fatwa concerning these games? Tell me if they are permissible or not in Islam. What is the possible permissible limit to nudity in them? What about romance? Is it permissible without fornication? Can one utter swear words without addressing them to others? Please answer me with sharia laws without allowing your whim and personal feelings into your answers…).

 We answer in this particle as follows.

Firstly: A creed of playfulness and distraction  

 Playfulness and being diverted and distracted away from Islam (the Quran) are the bases of earthly, human-made creeds fabricated by clergymen. Such people deal with their creeds in a playful manner; this is shown particularly in their prayers and acts of glorifying God. We explain this as follows.

1- Glorifying and remembering God in real Islam (i.e., the Quran alone) is to be done with reverence in supplication to God alone with low voice as we are ordered in the Quran: "And remember your Lord within yourself, humbly and fearfully, and quietly, in the morning and the evening, and do not be of the neglectful."(7:205). Polytheist Sunnite, Shiite, and Sufi Muhammadans are used to turning this glorification of God into dancing, singing, and festivals loud and noisy, especially in the case with Sufis. This is contrary to the Quranic order to glorify and remember God fearfully and quietly by the faithful believer. Muhammadans make this within idle and noisy playfulness; this is deemed as mocking God and His Quranic orders.

2- Prayers and supplications in real Islam (i.e., the Quran alone) are to be done reverently, submissively, humbly, and in fear of God. Otherwise, one is considered as mocking God and transgressing Hid divine orders: "Call upon your Lord humbly and privately. He does not love the aggressors. "(7:56). Hence, aggressors here are those who mock prayers and supplications by doing them in a playful manner. Real believers do them in low voices, in fear of God's punishment and desire for His mercy. Let us remember the Quranic example of Zachariah: "A mention of the mercy of your Lord towards His servant Zechariah. When he called on his Lord a call in seclusion inwardly in a low voice…" (19:2-3). The practical criterion to measure prayers and supplications is in cases when a human being is in distress. In that case a human being would invoke God while crying and supplicating reverently with all possible sincerity to ask God to remove such a distress. "Say, "Who delivers you from the darkness of land and sea?" You call upon Him humbly and inwardly: "If He delivers us from this, We will surely be among the thankful."" (6:63). In contrast, in fabricated human-fashioned creeds, prayers and supplications are turned into singing and dancing rituals while mentioning in mortals beside God: such as Prophet Muhammad and the so-called saints. They supplicate and invoke them in songs and long group ritualistic prayers. This includes all the so-called religious songs and hymns performed by Christians and Sunnite, Shiite, and Sufi Muhammadans. In the Day of Judgment, we have this Quranic scene concerning this idle playfulness and how such people will be rebuked for forsaking the Quran: "Those who took their religion lightly, and in jest, and whom the worldly life deceived. Today We will ignore them, as they ignored the meeting on this Day of theirs, and they used to deny Our revelations. We have given them a Scripture, which We detailed with knowledge-guidance and mercy for people who believe. "(7:51-52).

Secondly: From idle playfulness to manipulating God's religion

 Polytheist Muhammadans in their fabricated creeds based on playfulness and distraction are manipulating God's religion in many ways, chief among them is establishing a parallel sharia contrary to the Quranic sharia. This parallel human-made sharia laws are attributed falsely to Islam and to Prophet Muhammad after his death. Let us explain this within the following examples.

1- Killing those who have not killed or committed murder is forbidden in the Quran as the gravest of sins. Yet, Muhammadans give themselves in their laws the right to kill anyone leaving and forsaking their doctrine/creed, anyone who is married and commits adultery, anyone accused of practicing witchcraft, anyone who disobeys tyrant rulers, and anyone who gets out of the herd of 'believers'. This is done under the pretext of doing the right and combating the wrong. Hence, they legalize killings of innocent people, i.e. who have not killed anyone, as a sharia law! These killings are done under the pretext of Sunnite hadiths and similar falsehoods attributed to Prophet Muhammad after his death. Thus, Muhammadans, who worship a deity called Muhammad that is the figment of their imagination, compete in killing the innocent in holy months as well as Ramadan and in mosques during Friday noon prayers in many Arab cities! All those atrocities committed are contrary to God's law in the Quran that ordains the preserving of people's right to live (see 6:151, 17:33, and 25:68). Even manslaughter is not given impunity in Quranic orders: "Never should a believer kill another believer, unless by error. Anyone who kills a believer by error must set free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the victim's family, unless they remit it as charity. If the victim belonged to a people who are hostile to you, but is a believer, then the compensation is to free a believing slave. If he belonged to a people with whom you have a treaty, then compensation should be handed over to his family, and a believing slave set free. Anyone who lacks the means must fast for two consecutive months, by way of repentance to God. God is All-Knowing, Most Wise. "(4:92). God warns against eternal life in Hell for those who kill intentionally: "Whoever kills a believer deliberately, the penalty for him is Hell, where he will remain forever. And God will be angry with him, and will curse him, and will prepare for him a terrible punishment." (4:93). Let alone those who make such killings a religious duty ordered by God and/or Prophet Muhammad! What about those who kill thousands of people in random indiscriminate killings and massacres? Let us remember massacres that have occurred in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. A ''believer'' mentioned in (4:93) does not mean those (males or females) who believe in their hearts in God and the Quran; we are not to do inquisitions about beliefs of people. This is God's business, not ours. The word 'believer' here means all peaceful people regardless of their creeds and beliefs. Peaceful people are believers in terms of behavior and words, by just mentioning the word ''peace'' and sticking to it in action. To explain that notion, defensive war in the Quran has among its regulations the following verse: "O you who believe! When you journey in the way of God, investigate, and do not say to him who offers you peace, "You are not a believer," aspiring for the goods of this world…"(4:94).

2- Accordingly, the Muhammadans have turned the worst of sins, murder, into a religious duty permissible. The same applied to stealing, rape, and fornication. These crimes/sins were committed by Abou Bakr, Omar, Othman, and Ali Ibn Abou Taleb, the early caliphs who commanded and led the conquests and invasions of neighboring countries; the conquering Arabs stole lands, wealth, properties, possessions, and money of invaded people, raped their women, and enslaved their children. Enslavement of free persons became a trade and a sharia law in the creeds of Muhammadans: such as the Sunnite Ottomans, the Abbasids, the Umayyads, and the Shiite Fatimids. This enslavement is revived by today's Wahabis in modern times and by the first and second former Saudi states and the third current KSA.  By means of billions of oil-money, Wahabism spread all over the planet among the Muhammadans. This has caused bloodshed and corruption by so many terrorist organizations such as the MB, Al-Qaeda, and ISIS. Hence, fornication, incest, and rape have become a form of 'jihad' by ISIS, despite the fact that they are sins as per the Quran. These sins are included in the major sin of defying God's orders and corrupting life on earth: "The punishment for those who fight God and His Messenger, and strive to spread corruption on earth, is that they be killed, or crucified, or have their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or be banished from the land. That is to disgrace them in this life; and in the Hereafter they will have a terrible punishment. Except for those who repent before you apprehend them. So know that God is Forgiving and Merciful."(5:33-34). Wahabis commit sins like massacres in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and Libya, and they deserve the punishment stated in the previously mentioned Quranic verse. Wahabis include Saudis, Salafists, the criminal terrorist MB organization members, ISIS members, and Bin Laden followers. All such criminals believe the illusion that their grave sins are considered as a form of 'jihad'. This is the worst type of manipulation of the religion of God in the Quran.

Thirdly: The manipulation of the permissible and the smaller mistakes by the Muhammadans

 In contrast to the permissibility of major and grave sins by the Muhammadans as previously explained, they are fanatical bigots as far as turning small mistakes and mishaps into grave sins and considering the lawful (halal) things as unlawful and impermissible (haram) are concerned. Hence, they turn lies and myths into a creed of their own fashioning. Let us cite some examples.

1- Lying to others is unlawful of course according to the Quran, but it is a small sin or mistake, unless it is intended to commit a crime or a major sin by deceiving someone. In some cases, lying is permissible to avoid injustice or being tortured or maltreated. The worst type of lying is lying to God and in the name of Prophet Muhammad. Lies, falsehoods, and myths are the bases of human-made, earthly creeds fabricated by Christians and Muhammadans, for instance. They are attributing their lies of the so-called religious legislature, sayings, and oral/written traditions to divine revelations. Hence, the Sunnites call their hadiths/tomes/volumes as the Sunna (oral traditions) of Prophet Muhammad, and the Sufis call theirs as ''revelation by deep contemplation''. Shiites hold the same claim under the term ''People of the House'' knowledge; i.e., oral traditions attributed falsely to the prophet's family members as well as Shiite imams. Quranists call all these false traditions as the ''devilish revelation''. This is far worse than lying to others about trivial matters. Some members of the Qorayish tribe hated the Quran – as much as it is hated and ignored nowadays by the Muhammadans – and asked Prophet Muhammad to change it: "And when Our clear revelations are recited to them, those who do not hope to meet Us say, "Bring a Quran other than this, or change it." Say, "It is not for me to change it of my own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me. I fear, if I disobeyed my Lord, the torment of a terrible Day." Say, "Had God willed, I would not have recited it to you, and He would not have made it known to you. I have lived among you for a lifetime before it. Do you not understand?" Who does greater wrong than someone who fabricates lies about God, or denies His revelations? The guilty will never prosper. And they worship, besides God, what neither harms them nor benefits them. And they say, "These are our intercessors with God." Say, "Are you informing God about what He does not know in the heavens or on earth?" Glorified be He, High above the associations they make."(10:15-18). Accordingly, the imams of the Muhammadans' creeds have done the same like Qorayish tribe members who hated the Quran; they have ignored and overlooked the Quranic sharia under the pretext that they are replaced by the so-called Sunna oral traditions as well as by the so-called 'fiqh' (religious jurisprudence written by men over time). The replacement mentioned in the Quran does not mean cancelling some verses in favor of some others but means revelation of similar verses to affirm and assert certain facts by repetition. They have lied to god for 14 centuries by writing down tomes and volumes human traditions and fiqh and making them appear as if they were divine revelation. All these books of mythology and absurd falsehoods are being supported by all imams who strive to prove their veracity. We repeat that lying in ordinary life occurrences is a mistake not a grave sin, and permissible only in cases of avoiding injustice, torment, and oppression. But Muhammadans made their lies a creed and condemn to death/imprisonment whoever tries to refute these lies, under the accusation of contempt of religions!  

2- God tells us that some small mistakes and mishaps leading to the desire of fornication/adultery are liable to be done by all people. As long as a believer avoids fornication, as it is a grave sin, the small mistakes may be pardoned by God: "To God belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. He will repay those who do evil according to their deeds, and recompense those who do good with the best. Those who avoid gross sins and indecencies-except for minor lapses-your Lord is of Vast Forgiveness…"(53:31-32). "If you avoid the worst of what you are forbidden, We will remit your sins, and admit you by a Gate of Honor."(4:31). Small mistakes and lapses have turned into major sins in creeds of Muhammadans. Things that are not forbidden in the Quran have turned into major sins in creeds of Muhammadans: such as dancing, singing, and music (secular types that are not related to religions). As for lapses and small mistakes that encourage fornication like pornographic material, they are to be avoided as per the Quran. But audiovisual artistic expression is not forbidden; yet it is considered major sins in creeds of Muhammadans. In contrast, indiscriminate killing, stealing, rape, and enslavement are considered 'jihad' in creeds of Muhammadans! The only killing permissible in Islam is in times of defensive wars for the sake of God to prevent coercion in religion and injustice when imposed on us. Aggressive wars are for the sake of the Devil and are completely forbidden in the Quran. "Those who believe fight in the cause of God, while those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Evil. So fight the allies of the Devil. Surely the strategy of the Devil is weak." (4:76).

3- God orders women in the Quran to preserve decency in matters of clothes by covering their breasts, not their hair, faces, and necks. The Quranic order is to cover the legs of women, not their feet and arms. Hence, the veil covering women's hair and the niqab covering their faces are lies and falsehoods fabricated by Muhammadans. Both the veil (hijab) and the niqab (full-veil covering the face) have nothing to do with Islam. We have uploaded videos here and published many articles in detail concerning that subject. In our opinion, women in Islam are not to wear swimming clothes, but it is a small mishap or a mistake (as it goes against the Quranic order to cover their legs), not a grave sin. A grave sin in terms of clothes is the niqab; as men impose it as if it were a divine order, which is not true. God never mentions in the Quran any legislation concerning veil (hijab) or niqab. This is a type of lying to God; a major sin punishable in Hell when one dies without repentance from the sin of saying about God what one does not know. Let us be reminded of the following verse addressed to both men and women: "O Children of Adam! Dress properly at every place of worship, and eat and drink, but do not be excessive. He does not love the excessive. Say, "Who forbade God's finery which He has produced for His servants, and the delights of livelihood?" Say, "They are for those who believe, in this present world, but exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection." We thus detail the revelations for people who know. Say, "My Lord has forbidden immoralities-both open and secret-and sin, and unjustified aggression, and that you associate with God anything for which He revealed no sanction, and that you say about God what you do not know.""(7:31-33). These three verses expose the falsehood of the imams of the Muhammadans who say about God things they do not know and making the permissible impermissible as well as making the major sins as rituals of their creeds.


 The problem of the young man who has sent us the above email message is that he is concerned only with the permissible things deemed impermissible in his earthly, human-made creed: the simple mistakes and small mishaps. He ignores all atrocities committed by the Muhammadans that deserve his attention. He gives us a piece of advice in a haughty manner: "… Please answer me with sharia laws without allowing your whim and personal feelings into your answers…" and this is very ironic and sarcastic indeed!
