How I Lost My Parents Twenty-Five Years Ago because of Visitors of Muhammad's Mausoleum!

Introduction:

  We have received this email message, and we quote a part of it, followed by our reply: (... Dear Sir, ... Twenty-Five years ago, my parents died in a car accident with two uncles of mine as well, as they were heading to Hejaz to perform pilgrimage to Mecca and Yathreb, where they would have visited their 'holy' Muhammadan mausoleum, while the eldest uncle of them, who was inside the car but survived the accident, instead of bringing ambulance to save the injured victims, he decided to catch up the plane to visit the mausoleum in Yathreb! Upon his return, I quarreled with my uncle and blamed him for not saving the lives of the injured ones, and thus, he is responsible for their death. The ambulance men told me that the victims were dead because no one took the trouble to notify the ambulance earlier enough. I cursed my uncle in public for his being keen to visit a tomb and preferred this to saving his own family members! This uncle and other people accused me of being a heretic, and the rest of the family members supported the stance of my uncle and stood against me; I deserted them all and vowed never to talk to this uncle all my life, as he caused the death of my parents. I converted to atheism ever since; I work now in a Gulf monarchy and did not visit Egypt ever since; my evil uncle died recently and I rejoice at the fact. I've written articles on websites of Arab atheists using a pseudonym, and I've written comments on websites of Shiites and Salafists to ridicule their beliefs, especially visiting the cursed mausoleum in Yathreb and other cursed mausoleums of the so-called saints ... These Salafists and Shiites accused me of being a Quranist, though I was an atheist at the time and never read the Quran for years. Their accusation drove me to read about Quranism and Quranists by their foes who verbally abuse them, and then on your ahl-alquran website. I was just curious, and I found myself admiring your ideas and I've read your entire archive; I like the way you mock the Yathreb mausoleum and the polytheist worshipping at it, as if it is better and holier than the Kaaba to them; the idea of intercession is refuted thoroughly by you and no one can refute Quranism. I rejected atheism and I've become a Quranist now, and it feels great that faith is restored to me. I like your idea that real Islam has no clergy, Al-Azhar, imams, saints, mausoleums, immortality of prophets, etc. I've watched all your videos of Quranist Friday sermons and episodes of the show "Exposing Salafism", and I think that if the Muhammadans would convert to Quranism, real Islam, the world will change to the better. Since I converted to Quranism, I no longer feel angry with my dead uncle who caused the death of my parents because of his folly, but my question is as follows: if any Quranist man ever saw a car accident on his way to pilgrimage, would he save the victims and forget about the plane to Mecca? Or it would be better if he left them to their fate and catch up with the plane even without going to Yathreb at all? What do you think?  ... Thank you ...).

 

OUR REPLY:

 

Firstly: about those performing pilgrimage at the Kaaba and desire to visit the Satanist Yathreb mausoleum:

  God will never accept the pilgrimage of those polytheistic persons, as polytheism annuls good deeds of polytheists: "We will proceed to the works they did, and will turn them into scattered dust." (25:23). "The likeness of those who disbelieve in their Lord: their works are like ashes, in a fierce wind, on a stormy day. They have no control over anything they have earned. That is the utmost misguidance." (14:18). "As for those who disbelieve, their works are like a mirage in a desert. The thirsty assumes it is to be water. Until, when he has reached it, he finds it to be nothing, but there he finds God, Who settles his account in full. God is swift in reckoning. Or like utter darkness in a vast ocean, covered by waves, above which are waves, above which is fog. Darkness upon darkness. If he brings out his hand, he will hardly see it. He to whom God has not granted a light has no light." (24:39-40). After God annuls their good deeds because of their polytheism, and they will enter into Hell: "...Whoever associates others with God, God has forbidden him Paradise, and his dwelling is the Fire. The wrongdoers have no supporters." (5:72); this warning is addressed to Muhammad and all prophets so that they warn their people: "It was revealed to you, and to those before you, that if you are polytheists, your works will be in vain, and you will be of the losers." (39:65).  

 

Secondly: about those performing pilgrimage at the Kaaba and never deify or sanctify mortals or items:

1- The pilgrimage of those persons will be accepted by God if they adhere to piety as much as they can: "The Hajj is during specific months. Whoever decides to perform the Hajj-there shall be no sexual relations, nor misconduct, nor quarrelling during the Hajj. And whatever good you do, God knows it. And take provisions, but the best provision is righteousness. And be mindful of Me, O people of understanding." (2:197). These pious persons fear God and heed this Quranic warning: "...and seek to commit sacrilege therein - We will make him taste of a painful punishment." (22:25).   

2- Of course, pilgrimage is for those who have enough money and enjoy the best of physical health; thus, the weak, the poor, the ill, etc. are not to perform pilgrimage, and the same applies to those whose life would be at risk in Hejaz or on their route to it for real reasons; the pious persons know that the Omniscient God knows their intentions.     

3- We assert here that a Quranist pious person must save the victims of a car accident he/she witnesses instead of going on with his/her journey.  

 

Thirdly: acts of Muhammadans during pilgrimage have nothing to do with Islam:

1- The Muhammadans assume that the only thing of vital importance during pilgrimage is to worship at the sanctified Yathreb mausoleum ascribed falsely to Muhammad, and they assume that the Kaaba is to be touched for benediction as a holy relic; such polytheistic notions make the Muhammadans forget the fact that within Islam, no dead or living mortal or any items/buildings are holy at all; real pious pilgrims are never to enter Yathreb and never to touch the Kaaba itself and the Blackstone which is merely a sign of the location to start circumambulation. Real pilgrims never apply or believe in the myth of stoning the so-called pillar of Satan with pebbles, nor in the myth of male pilgrims wearing two pieces of cloth with no underwear or any clothes underneath, thus performing rituals semi-naked. Real Ihram is not clothes, but to adhere to piety during all pilgrimage rituals, and to apply all Quranic verses related to pilgrimage. Real pious ones never perform pilgrimage on behalf of someone else, dead or alive, nor believe in the myth that pilgrimage would remove all committed sins since they are born. No real believers would assume that performing pilgrimage using ill-gotten money (of corruption and crimes, etc.) would remove all sins committed during one's lifetime; this is absurd indeed. For more details, we refer you to our book on pilgrimage and Ihram on this link (in English):

 http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=90           

2- The main problem is that the Muhammadans worship and deify an imaginary immortal deity whom they call 'Muhammad', a god that has nothing to do with the mortal Prophet Muhammad mentioned in the Quran. Thus, the Muhammadans are polytheists who worship this deity called Muhammad and revere him more than God Himself, and this leads them to desire ardently to worship at the Satanist mausoleum in Yathreb dedicated to their supreme deity, touching it reverently, fervently, and in piety, thinking that as if the Prophet were alive in a tomb and would intercede on their behalf to make them enter into Paradise! Such falsehoods and myths led your Muhammadan uncle to catch up with his plane instead of saving your parents; he assumed that the entombed deity is better that they were! This is the backward, poisonous mentality of polytheism of the Muhammadans. We refer you to these articles (in English) refuting the myth of the Yathreb mausoleum:

Lastly:

1- God links pilgrimage rituals to avoidance of polytheism and pagan mausoleums and idols and their likes: "As for those who disbelieve and repel from God's path and from the Sacred Mosque-which We have designated for all humankind equally, whether residing therein or passing through-and seek to commit sacrilege therein-We will make him taste of a painful punishment. We showed Abraham the location of the House: "Do not associate anything with Me; and purify My House for those who circle around, and those who stand to pray, and those who kneel and prostrate." And announce the pilgrimage to humanity. They will come to you on foot, and on every transport. They will come from every distant point. That they may witness the benefits for themselves, and celebrate the name of God during the appointed days, for providing them with the animal livestock. So eat from it, and feed the unfortunate poor. Then let them perform their acts of cleansing, and fulfill their vows, and circle around the Ancient House. All that. Whoever venerates the sanctities of God-it is good for him with his Lord. All livestock are permitted to you, except what is recited to you. So stay away from the abomination of idols, and stay away from perjury." (22:25-30).

2- The Muhammadans who control the Kaaba, i.e., the Saudi royal family member, repel people away from God's Path, the Quran, and away from the Kaaba Sacred Mosque made a sanctuary safe for all people coming from all continents. 

3- Most Muhammadans in general have little faith in God, as most of their faith is dedicated other deities/saints, especially their imaginary immortal god named Muhammad, and this drives them to worship the idol/mausoleum in Yathreb and they never stay away from saying and repeating falsehoods, i.e., hadiths ascribed falsely to Muhammad decades after his death.     

4- We thank Almighty God for His saving us from such polytheism.
