Ill-Gotten Food of the Muhammadans

Ill-Gotten Food of the Muhammadans

Introduction: Eating ill-gotten money:

1- In endeavoring to reform, God says in the Quran about some Jews and Christians in the time of the revelation of the Quran: "You see many of them competing with one another in sin and hostility, and their consuming of what is illicit. What they have been doing is truly evil.Why do the rabbis and the priests not prevent them from speaking sinfully and from consuming forbidden wealth? Evil is what they have been doing."(5:62-63). We think that the same verses apply now to the conditions of the Muhamadans today: so many of them are readily participating in evil deeds, aggression, and eating from ill-gotten money. The Muhammadans' sheikhs and imams never admonish them against that; one the contrary, those clergymen are leaders in participation in evil deeds, aggression, and eating from ill-gotten money.

2- Another verse to warn believers against ill-gotten money is the following: "And do not consume one another's wealth by unjust means, nor offer it as bribes to the officials in order to consume part of other people's wealth illicitly, while you know."(2:188). This verse comes after the ones about the fasting month, Ramadan, i.e., believers have to abstain for a lifetime from bribes, corruption, and stealing one another's money. The conditions of the Muhammadans of today are bribes galore, interminable corruption, and fraudulent ways to get illicit money by any means.

3- Ill-gotten money leads its owner to eat illicit, impermissible food as per the Quranic teachings; that is to say, not only ill-gotten money makes you eat ill-gotten food due to impure source of gaining money, but also that the Muhammadans might eat – even by well-gained money by proper means – prohibited food like the one presented at celebration days of the so-called saints: tombs of 'holy' and 'sanctified' dead men and women. This is the topic of the article you are reading now here.

 

Firstly: the Muhammadans and their prohibition of permissible foods and allowing forbidden foods in the religious legislatures.

1- The Quran asserts in many verses the certain types of forbidden foods; these types include what cattle slaughtered before 'holy' shrines and any food given in celebrations not dedicated to God but to mortal gods/deities (the so-called saints) as well as idols invented by the human imagination. This warning is recurrent in the Quranic text, but the Muhammadans never take heed of it. This explains partly the reason of recurrence of this Quranic warning; this is miraculous predictions of the Holy Writ of Islam: the Noble Quran. We have written in so many articles published here on our website that prohibited foods are confined only to the ones mentioned explicitly to be prohibited in the Quran. We are quoting here: (…Other Quranic facts in this issue are the following four points. A- Non-prohibited foods are all things not mentioned in the Quran in an explicit context of prohibition. B- Being permissible is the original rule concerning most types of foods; prohibited types are a few exceptions. C- One cannot prohibit a food not mentioned in the Quran as prohibited. D- Prohibition of legal food is deemed polytheism; one cannot add to Quranic legislature; this is self-deification.  God is the only One to legislate in Islam via His message: the Quran).

2- We have quoted the above-mentioned passage to refute claims of liars of imams of fiqh concerning their prohibition of countless types of foods never prohibited I the Quran, while they disregard forbidden food consumed in the so-called quasi-religious celebration of the so-called saints/shrines/tombs made holy and sanctified as deities beside God by the Shiites, Sufis, and Sunnites. This prohibition is found in the following verse: "Prohibited for you are carrion, blood, the flesh of swine, and animals and food dedicated to other than God…and animals sacrificed on altars…"(5:3). Hence, all foods given and distributed at the celebrations of the so-called saints should be avoided by the faithful believers. Tombs of the so-called 'holy' men and women are like alters to be shunned at all costs along with foods dedicated to such shrines/tombs. The previously mentioned verse includes all prohibited foods; otherwise, other types are permissible. One cannot possible add other types as unlawful; this is against the Quranic orders. The divine prohibition recurs elsewhere in the Quranic text: "O you who believe! Eat of the good things We have provided for you, and give thanks to God, if it is Him that you serve.He has forbidden you carrion, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and what was dedicated to other than God. But if anyone is compelled, without desiring or exceeding, he commits no sin. God is Forgiving and Merciful."(2:172-173) and "Say, "In what was revealed to me, I find nothing forbidden to a consumer who eats it, except carrion, or spilled blood, or the flesh of swine-because it is impure-or a sinful offering dedicated to other than God. But if someone is compelled by necessity, without being deliberate or malicious-your Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."(6:145).

3- What happens now in the countries of the Muhamadans is contrary to the Quranic teachings; prohibition of so many types of foods by imams and clergymen (especially food cooked by Christians and Jews). This state of affairs is clearly observed in the West; the word halal (in English) is written in meat products to dupe Muslims into buying expensive types sold by swindlers who use meat coming from non-Muslim factories. This is a type of business to imitate Kosher Jewish outlets/restaurants. Another Muhammadans' method of adding lies and falsehoods to Islam is prohibition of all material related to pigs in all food products; the Quranic prohibition is confined only to consuming their flesh. Some Muhammadans prohibit eating of certain animals like rabbits and horses flesh…etc.

4- Believers can eat whatever food as long as it is not prohibited in the Quranic text; those mortals prohibiting any type of food not mention as unlawful in the Quran is deifying themselves and following the footsteps of Satan, because they are confiscating God' right of legislating in Islam. "O people! Eat of what is lawful and good on earth, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. He is to you an open enemy. He commands you to do evil and vice, and to say about God what you do not know."(2:168-169), "Among the livestock are some for transportation, and some for clothing. Eat of what God has provided for you, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. He is to you an outright enemy."(6:142), "Eat of the lawful and good things God has provided for you, and be thankful for God's blessings, if it is Him that you serve. He has forbidden you carrion, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and anything consecrated to other than God. But if anyone is compelled by necessity, without being deliberate or malicious, then God is Forgiving and Merciful.And do not say of falsehood asserted by your tongues, "This is lawful, and this is unlawful," in order to invent lies and attribute them to God. Those who invent lies and attribute them to God will not succeed.A brief enjoyment-then they will have a painful punishment"(16:114-117), ''Say, "Have you considered the sustenance God has sent down for you, some of which you made unlawful, and some lawful?" Say, "Did God give you permission, or do you fabricate lies and attribute them to God?"What will they think-those who fabricate lies and attribute them to God-on the Day of Resurrection? God is bountiful towards the people, but most of them do not give thanks.'' (10:59-60), and "O you who believe! Do not prohibit the good things God has permitted for you, and do not commit aggression. God does not love the aggressors. And eat of the lawful and good things God has provided for you; and be conscious of God, in whom you are believers."(5:87-88).

5- Believers who are pious shuns forbidden food mentioned in the Quran and eat other types they like and never prohibit food not made unlawful in the Quran: "Those who believe and do righteous deeds will not be blamed for what they may have eaten, provided they obey, and believe, and do good deeds, then maintain piety and faith, then remain righteous and charitable. God loves the charitable."(5:93). People are used to prohibiting foods they personally dislike for some reason or the other; prophet Muhammad fell into this mistake and the Quran admonishes him for it: "O prophet! Why do you prohibit what God has permitted for you, seeking to please your wives? God is Forgiving and Merciful."(66:1). Imams of ancient times fabricated sayings (hadiths) ascribed falsely to Prophet Muhammad to prohibit eating flesh of horses, donkeys …etc. Yet, prohibition does not follow personal whims; the only forbidden foods in the Quran (in 5:3) are the same and cannot be added to by humans. These four types of forbidden foods are precisely told in 5:3, 1-dead animals, 2-blood of animals, 3- flesh of pigs, and 4- food/cattle dedicated to others apart from God, like the so-called saints/idols…etc.

6- The major sin of the Muhammadans is their prohibition of lawful foods and allowing of consumption of prohibited foods in no. 4 in the above list: eating all foods in quasi-religious celebrations of the so-called saints (male and female dead persons) and their tombs/ shrines/ mausoleums. This is idolatry and polytheism. Hundreds of tons of cattle are being slaughtered and consumed annually before the countless so-called 'holy' shrines in the countries and cities of the Muhammadans. Hence, thousands eat prohibited food in Islam. One ought to slaughter animals to feed the poor instead of doing that to honor mortal deities!

 

Secondly: This sin of the Muhammadans is due to their following blindly their forefathers' teachings even when they run contrary to the Quranic ones.

1- One of the miraculous predictions of the Quran is linking the negative unbelievers' notion of following blindly the forefathers' teachings to their prohibition of legal foods and allowing the consumption of illegal foods. This is elucidated from the verses: "O people! Eat of what is lawful and good on earth, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. He is to you an open enemy. He commands you to do evil and vice, and to say about God what you do not know. "(2:168-169). These verses address all humanity, not just people at the time of the revelation of the Quran. Hence, these verses describe the state of the Muhammadans nowadays like the polytheists at the time of Prophet Muhammad. They refuse to adhere to divine laws and stick faithfully to tenets and creed laws fabricated by humans, i.e., their ancestors, and so they follow Satan: "Andwhen it is said to them, "Follow what God has revealed," they say, "We will follow what we found our ancestors following." Even if their ancestors understood nothing, and were not guided? "(2:170). This verse applies now to the Muhammadans, especially the Salafis/Wahabis. Non-believers in generals are like stock animals following their leaders blindly; this is evidenced in Youtube videos of Salafis preaching to Muhammadans. Let us remember this verse: "The parable of those who disbelieve is that of someone who calls upon someone who hears nothing except screaming and yelling. Deaf, dumb, and blind-they do not understand." (2:171). Whereas true believers are directly addressed in (2:172-173) "O you who believe! Eat of the good things We have provided for you, and give thanks to God, if it is Him that you serve.  He has forbidden you carrion, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and what was dedicated to other than God. But if anyone is compelled, without desiring or exceeding, he commits no sin. God is Forgiving and Merciful."

 

Lastly:

 If one deems oneself a believer, one should adhere faithfully to legislations of God in the Quran with no further additional ones added by mortals. If one follows the herd of Muhammadans, one will forsake the Quranic teachings and follow mortal deities: the ancestors and their teachings. You have to choose and one cannot do both things simultaneously. God in the Day of Judgment will judge us all and settle our disputes in our religious views and stances.
