Do the Muhammadans Worship the Dominant Lord or Satan?

Do the Muhammadans Worship the Dominant Lord or Satan?

Published in May 5, 2017

Translated by: Ahmed Fathy


1- This query is posed, and its answer is obtained from using the Quran as the criterion to judge the religious life of the Muhammadans. God has revealed the Quran as the last message from Him to all humanity until the end of days; the Quranic message is preserved in its entirety to serve as the only source of guidance for those seeking to be guided; each of us must use the Quran, God's Word, as the criterion to judge one's faith tenets and beliefs as well as acts of worship. 

2- This is our methodology as Quranists; we use the Quran to reform the Muhammadans who claim to believe in the Quran; if this were true, they should have used the Quran to judge, and reject, Middle-Ages traditions, fiqh, and hadiths of the forefathers and then to adhere only to the Quran as the only criterion; this is the obligatory duty in Islam that we, Quranists, never get bored of reminding people of it: ""Shall I seek a judge other than God, when He is the One who revealed to you the Book, explained in detail?"..." (6:114). We cannot help but notice that the number of this verse is 114; the number of all Quranic chapters. Thus, the Quran is the only judge within our religious life.   

  We repeat this question here: Do the Muhammadans worship the Dominant Lord or Satan? We offer our reply below.


Firstly: the meaning of the notion of the worship of Satan:

1- Abraham said to his polytheistic father the following: "O my father, do not worship Satan; Satan is disobedient to the Dominant Lord." (19:44). How did Abraham's father worship the devil? We seek the answer from the Quran. Abraham's father and people used to worship pagan idols/deities made of stone: "..."We worship idols, and we remain devoted to them."" (26:71). Abraham's father and people used to carve statues as deities to be worshipped: "...Do you worship what you carve?" (37:95). Abraham's father and people used to celebrate their deities in festivals as a social activity, just like Sufi festivals (or moulids in Arabic), and Abraham told them the following: "...You have chosen idols instead of God, out of affection for one another in the worldly life..." (29:25). Abraham's father and people used to make up and fabricate tales and false stories of powers and miracles allegedly pertaining to their deities, and Abraham told them the following: "He said to his father and his people, "What are you worshiping? Is it false deities, in lieu of the Lord, that you want" (37:85-86); "You worship idols besides God, and you fabricate falsehoods. Those you worship, instead of God, cannot provide you with livelihood. So seek your livelihood from God, and worship Him, and thank Him. To Him you will be returned."" (29:17). Thus, in fact, Abraham's father and people worshipped the devil: Satan.  

2- We pose this query here now: Do the Muhammadans in their worship of 'holy' tombs/mausoleums and in their belief in saints/imams/sheikhs and their purported miracles and powers differ from Abraham's people? Abraham is described in the Quran within the following words: "...He was a man of truth, a prophet." (19:41). Abraham was truthful when he described the acts of worship of his people and his father as ''worship of Satan'' and not to carved statues made of stone. Likewise, we, Quranists, are saying the truth when we describe the acts of worship of the Muhammadans at mausoleums as ''worship of Satan".


Secondly: within the earthly religions of the polytheists, Satan is the real deity being worshipped, not carved stones and building materials of mausoleums:

1- The human mind never accepts to worship a stone or a building; Satan (and the devils) interfere to control minds and hearts of people so that they would assume to attain benediction and drive away evil powers by sanctifying and worshipping stones, relics, buildings, and mausoleums and things like them. It is silly to assume that there is a 'saint' who is immortal and alive inside a tomb! Would a deity or a holy person be allowed to be interred underground to be stepped on by worshippers?! Why these worshippers would not exhume the cadaver/corpse to worship it instead?! Would the phantom of the saint (e.g., Hussein or Ali, etc.) emerge from the mausoleum to greet his worshippers?! This would surely make people, who are seeking aid and power of the 'saints', run away in panic, not to embrace such interred deities!    

2- Hence, all mausoleums, including the one in the Yathreb mosque, are the works of Satan and fashioned by the devils who urged people to erect and build them by controlling their minds using myths. God commands us to avoid such mausoleums: "O you who believe! wine, gambling, mausoleums, and sanctified buildings are abominations of Satan's doing. Avoid them, so that you may prosper. Satan wants to provoke strife and hatred among you through wine and gambling, and to prevent you from the remembrance of God, and from prayer. Will you not desist?" (5:90).  

3- All of the above is proven by the fact that most mausoleums are built over nothing; there are no corpses interred underneath them at all. For instance, there are several mausoleums ascribed to the son of Ali, named Al-Hussein, and the Fatimids built a mosque and a mausoleum over the assumed severed head of Al-Hussein in Cairo, Egypt. How did they know, after all these centuries, that the cranium was his?! Did they perform the DNA test?! Likewise, the mosque and mausoleum of the Lady Zeinab in Cairo, Egypt, (Sayeda Zeinab in Arabic) never existed before the Ottoman Era. Likewise, the mausoleum ascribed falsely to Muhammad in Yathreb has nothing to do with the burial site of Muhammad at all.    

4- All dead bodies (of all prophets and other mortals) turn into dust; this occurred to Muhammad and his enemies/foes the polytheists of Qorayish; God says the following while directly addressing Muhammad about his foes: "You will die, and they will die. Then, on the Day of Resurrection, you will be quarrelling before your Lord." (39:30-31). Death means the inevitable decomposition of dead bodies of Muhammad and his contemporaries, friends and foes, and we are NOT to deify or sanctify mortals and creatures, let alone corpses turned into dust. Even the People of the Cave had a frightening look after sleeping for 309 years; their being good believers has nothing to do with decomposed bodies interred so as not to harm living people: "We relate to you their story in truth. They were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance." (18:13); "You would think them awake, although they were asleep. And We turned them over to the right, and to the left, with their dog stretching its paws across the threshold. Had you looked at them, you would have turned away from them in flight, and been filled with fear of them." (18:18).

5- Quranic discourse is believed by reasoning minds, but not the minds of the Muhammadans who worship mausoleums as Satan and devils deceive their hearts, minds, and souls, making them see their sins as good deeds and their misguidance as 'true' faith. God tell us the following about the Muhammadans and polytheists: "...They have adopted the devils for patrons rather than God, and they assume that they are guided." (7:30); "Whoever shuns the remembrance of the Dominant Lord, We assign for him a devil, to be his companion. They repel them from the Path, though they think they are guided." (43:36-37).


Thirdly: the 'holy' Satanist inspirations and devilish revelations descend over liars who are enemies of prophets:

1- The divine revelation comes from God within the celestial messages/scriptures conveyed by prophets; in contrast, the Satanist inspirations/revelations descend on polytheistic human beings, who are allies of Satan, with myths, tales, hadiths, narratives, etc. in the guise of being part of religion and the realm of the unknown.  

2-  God says the following about the Quran conveyed from God to Muhammad though Gabriel and how devils has nothing to do with the Quranic revelation: "It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. The Honest Spirit came down with it. Upon your heart, that you may be one of the warners." (26:192-194); "It was not the devils that revealed it. It is not in their interests, nor in their power. They are barred from hearing." (26:210-212).

3- We notice the past simple tense used in the previous verses; indicating that the divine revelation is done perfectly in the Quran: there is no room for more revelations in the divine message. Yet, the devilish revelations and Satanist inspirations go on descending on allies of Satan within the past, the present, and the future, as we infer from the present tense used here in the following verses: "Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend? They descend upon every sinful liar." (26:221-222).  

4- In 26:222, we infer that sinful liars specialize in fabricating and spreading falsehoods and lies; this reminds us of Abraham's words to his people: "Is it false deities, in lieu of the Lord, that you want?" (37:86). Hence, fabrication and propagation of falsehoods, myths, and lies go on as long as clergymen exist and control minds of gullible people.

5- We are to believe in only one narrative/revelation/discourse in Islam: God's Word: the Quran, as we know from this verse: "These are God's Verses which We recite to you in truth. In which discourse, after God and His revelations, will they believe?" (45:6). Directly after this verse, God says the following about sinful liars and allies of the devils: "Woe to every sinful liar. Who hears God's revelations being recited to him, yet he persists arrogantly, as though he did not hear them. Announce to him a painful punishment." (45:7-8).

6- Because such devilish deception of the polytheists goes on, God repeats the Quranic preaching and warning: "...So how are you misled?" six times in the Quran; e.g., in the following verses: 6:95, 10:34, 35:3, and 40:62.

7- Countries of the Muhammadans with clergymen (Sufi, Sunnite, and Shiite ones) controlling everyone show to us that the deception goes on; indeed, clergymen are human devils. There is no difference in polytheism among Al-Azhar institution, based in Cairo, Egypt, and religious institutions in cities like Riyadh, Karbala, Qom, etc.

8- The Quranic expression "human devils" has deeper levels of meaning; it indicates the deep-rooted relation between devils and their allies among clergy/imams of misguidance in all eras within earthly, man-made, fabricated religions: " Likewise, We have assigned for every prophet an enemy-human and jinn devils-inspiring one another with fancy words in order to deceive. But had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. So leave them to their fabrications. So that the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter may incline to it, and be content with it, and that they may perpetrate whatever they perpetrate." (6:112-113). Hence. Clergymen of all types are real enemies of prophets of God. prophets were divinely inspired with God's revelation, whereas clergymen are allies of the devil who spread Satanist revelations and inspirations, in a deepened relations that make them deserve the description "human devils". The divine revelation ended when the Quran was perfected; in contrast, the Satanist inspirations and devilish revelations go on to their allies in all eras, as we infer from the present tense in 6:113. We are to use the Quran as the sole and only criterion to judge, refute, and reject such myths and false revelations.   

9- When we use the Quran as criterion to judge, refute, and reject such Muhammadan myths and false revelations of the Sunnites, Shiites, and Sufis in their books of fiqh, hadiths, and interpretation authored by so many writers like Al-Bokhary, Moslem, Al-Shafei, Malik, Al-Ghazaly, Al-Shaarany, Al-Qurtubi, etc., Muhammadans hate us for it and they still adhere to devilish revelations that have led them to reject God's Word: the Quran. Proof: Quranists are persecuted, especially us, Dr. A. S. Mansour, and such persecution is not because of personal reasons or transient world glory, power, authority, or possessions, but because we have managed to refute their earthly, man-made, fabricated religions using the Quran, and we are so vociferous and outspoken about it. If we were silent or kept a low profile, they would not have persecuted us. Hence, the Muhammadans persecute us because they hate the Quran to which they claim to adhere.      



1- God warns us against the deception and temptations of Satan and devils, and how we must never forget that Satan is our arch-enemy: "O people! The promise of God is true; so let not the lowly life seduce you, and let not the Tempter tempt you away from God. Satan is an enemy to you, so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his gang to be among the inmates of Hell." (35:5-6). Yet, the Muhammadans worship Satan as their deity and they never deem Satan as an arch-enemy, when they believe in falsehoods and lies of Al-Bokhary, Al-Ghazaly, Al-Kulayni, etc. and their hadiths for the past centuries within many generations, until the present moment and generation. 

2- God will tell the following to misguided human beings, who will enter Hell, who worshipped Satan for centuries and generations: "Did I not covenant with you, O Children of Adam, that you shall not serve the devil? That he is your sworn enemy? And that you shall serve Me? This is a straight path. He has misled a great multitude of you. Did you not understand? This is Hellfire, which you were promised. Roast in it today, because you persistently disbelieved." (36:60-64).

3- Thus, imams of misguidance like Al-Bokhary, Moslem, Ibn Hanbal, Ibn Taymiyya, Al-Shafei, Malik, Al-Ghazaly, Al-Shaarany, Al-Qurtubi, Al-Kulayni, Ibn Abdul-Wahab, Ibn Al-Jawzy, etc. will be called on the Last Day, and they will admit that they were not being worshipped indeed, as their followers worshipped Satan actually, as these imams were misguided by Satan before them: "On the Day when He will call to them, and say, "Where are My associates whom you used to claim?" Those against whom the sentence is justified will say, "Our Lord, these are they whom we misled. We misled them, as we were misled. We beg Your forgiveness; it was not us they used to worship."" (28:62-63).

4- Satan will also disown those followers and worshippers as Satan never forced them to obey devils: "And Satan will say, when the issue is settled, "God has promised you the promise of truth, and I promised you, but I failed you. I had no authority over you, except that I called you, and you answered me. So do not blame me, but blame yourselves. I cannot come to your aid, nor can you come to my aid. I reject your associating with me in the past. The wrongdoers will have a torment most painful."" (14:22).
