The Arabic Tongue of the Abbasid Era

Published in January 12, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I'd like to know from you the linguistic features of the Arabic tongue used within the Abbasid Era; I mean the level of language found in the so-called hadiths. I do believe that such a style of language cannot produce ideas of enlightenment.......... … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Please wait for our coming book about the Quran in relation to Arabic grammar/syntax. We assert briefly here that grammatical rules of the Arabic tongue were written down and formulated during the Abbasid Era and that they contradict the Quranic tongue (i.e., the syntactic structure of the Quranic phrases). The same style of language used in heritage books of traditions (i.e., fiqh, hadiths, exegeses, commentaries, and interpretation and the fake biography of Muhammad) authored by Sunnite, Shiite, and Sufi authors (who intentionally contradict the Quran within their devilish, man-made, earthly/terrestrial religions) is the same style of writing used in books of philosophy and science authored by Avicenna, Averroes, etc.

Myths Preached in Mosques

Published in January 13, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I am an adolescent young woman. Two years ago, I became very religious and donned the veil, and this enraged my family; they hate my attending sermons/lessons at the local mosque; they hate my listening to CDs of sermons of famous sheikhs. They listen to music though it is prohibited! I do not think that they pray regularly, if ever! My father forced me never to attend any activities in mosques! What shall I do? Any advice? … Thank you …  

Answer:

 We do advise you to quit entering into mosques of the polytheistic Muhammadans who preach nothing but myths to brainwash the gullible masses. Music/arts are never prohibited in Islam. Wearing the veil (or covering your hair by any headwear) is never part of Islam. Please stop watching/attending or listening to sermons of Sunnites; you can get busy reading our Quranism website (and watching our YouTube videos) to learn the facts of True Islam (i.e., Quranism).

Tombstones

Published in January 13, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I live in a Yemeni village near the Yemeni capital Sana'a. In my village, there are many tombs and graveyards; many tombstones are so big and high; many ancient graveyards are built using huge stones. Many of such stones were originally taken from the ruins/monuments and ancient edifices … My question is as follows: am I allowed to take some stones from such graveyards to build a house or not? What do you think?  … Thank you …

Answer:

 Originally, stones belong to those who own (as inheritors) the tombs and the graveyards. One does not have to build a stone-chamber over any tombs. As for tombs and graveyards which are old and owned by no one, anyone can/use take useless, extra stones from them (but not the tombstone itself containing names of the dead ones, etc.); we mean the stones used within chambers built over tombs.

Contradiction in our Views?!

Published in January 13, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  You assert all the time that there are clergymen or mediators in Islam between believers on the one hand and the Lord God and His Book on the other hand; yet, you insist on the so-called marriage contracts! Marriages in the past centuries were never documented in a written form, as you know. The marriage registrars, then, are like the controlling clergymen you hate, esp. that they are mostly Azharites! I do believe that marriage should never include drawing a contract; the commitment ceremony is enough in the presence of witnesses and guests .............  What do you think? … Thank you …    

Answer:

 You are extremely mistaken; without marriage contracts, there is no marriage at all; it is the grave sin of fornication. By the way, we do NOT contradict ourselves; we are against the notion of clergymen; priests/clergymen who hold marriage ceremonies prevent Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men. This is very wrong. Marriage in Islam anywhere and at all eras, before, during, and after the revelation of the Quran, has been documented in written forms/contracts; this is a historical fact less known by most people. other conditions of valid marriages in Islam is the presence of witnesses who sign the marriage contracts. These contracts are not drawn by clergymen; they can be drawn by lawyers and governmental employees (e.g., the marriage registrars). Outside marriage contracts, sex between a man and a woman is deemed as fornication. There is nothing in Islam called boyfriend/girlfriend relation, indiscriminate sex with many partners, one-night stands, or 'commitment' ceremonies without drawing marriage contracts.

About the Quranic Verse 7:16

Published in January 14, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The Quran mentions that Satan or Iblis said the following to the Lord God: "He said, "Because you have lured me, I will waylay them on Your Straight Path." (7:16). My question is as follows: How has God lured Iblis? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 These words in 7:16 are that of Iblis/Satan; the Lord God does NOT lure or tempt anyone; Iblis here levels a false accusation against the Lord God. This is in the context of Iblis defiantly disobeying the command of the Lord God; he arrogantly refused to prostrate to Adam, and in 7:16, Iblis continues his defiance and finding a pretext to 'justify' his disobedience; he has made a vow to lure/tempt/seduce the vast majority of the progeny of Adam. We draw the lesson of obeying the Lord God's Quranic commands without questioning them; this the stance of other angels who prostrated to Adam. Iblis the rebel angel was expelled from the Upper Realm and was turned into one of the jinn: he became Satan the Devil. The Lord God says the following in the Quran:

 "...We said to the angels, "Bow down before Adam;" so they bowed down, except for Iblis; he was not of those who bowed down. He said, "What prevented you from bowing down when I have commanded you?" He said, "I am better than he; You created me from fire, and You created him from mud." He said, "Get down from it! It is not for you to act arrogantly in it. Get out! You are one of the lowly!" He said, "Give me respite, until the Day they are resurrected." He said, "You are of those given respite." He said, "Because you have lured me, I will waylay them on Your Straight Path. Then I will come at them from before them, and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left; and you will not find most of them thankful." He said, "Get out of it, despised and vanquished. Whoever among them follows you-I will fill up Hell with you all." (7:11-18).

 "When We said to the angels, "Bow down before Adam," they bowed down, except for Satan. He said, "Shall I bow down before someone You created from mud?" He said, "Do You see this one whom You have honored more than me? If You reprieve me until the Day of Resurrection, I will bring his descendants under my sway, except for a few."" (17:61-62).

 "He said, "O Iblis, what prevented you from prostrating before what I created with My Own hands? Are you too proud, or were you one of the exalted?" He said, "I am better than he; You created me from fire, and You created him from clay."" (38:75-76).

 "He said, "O Iblis, what kept you from being among those who prostrated themselves?" He said, "I am not about to prostrate myself before a human being, whom You created from clay, from molded mud."" (15:32-39).

An Ignorant Shiite Sheikh

Published in January 14, 2018

 

  

Question: … Dear Sir, … I've watched on TV a Shiite sheikh delivering a sermon; he assumes wrongly that this verse: "In what discourse, beyond this, will they believe?" (77:50) does NOT mean that the Quran is the Only Discourse in Islam; he assumes wrongly that the belief in the Quranic discourse is the first step which must be followed by the belief in discourses/hadiths attributed to Muhammad and his household members! How can this Shiite sheikh be refuted by you? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 This Shiite sheikh has intentionally distorted the meaning of the Quranic verses 77:50. Of course, this verse (as the case with all Quranic verses) is clear enough and it does NOT require any interpretation at all. These Quranic verses explain one another: "Woe on that Day to the rejecters. In what discourse, beyond this, will they believe?" (77:49-50); "Have they not observed the government of the heavens and the earth, and all the things that God created, and that their time may have drawn near? Which discourse, besides this, will they believe in?" (7:185); "These are God's Verses which We read to you in Truth. In which discourse, after God and His Verses, will they believe?" (45:6). The Quran is the source of guidance for those who seek to be guided; it also increase the loss/misguidance of those seeking to undermine its verses like this Shiite sheikh. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "Those who seek to undermine Our Verses are not hidden from Us. Is he who is hurled into the Hell-Fire better? Or he who arrives safely on the Day of Resurrection? Do as you please; He is Seeing of everything you do." (41:40); "We send down in the Quran healing and mercy for the believers, but it increases the unjust ones only in loss." (17:82).

Azharite Ignoramuses on TV

Published in January 14, 2018

 

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, … I've watched recently a TV show of an unveiled TV presenter posing questions to two Azharite sheikhs......among the questions was why slavery/enslavement is not abolished by Muhammad or within the Quran; both sheikhs could not respond to the question and offered a roundabout, vague answer which has nothing to do with the question!......... What do you think? … Thank you …        

Answer:

 Azharite books/curricula contain nothing but the Wahabi ideology fit for the ISIS terrorists; they are the bases of the devilish Wahabi ideology of terrorism; Azharite sheikhs are ignoramuses who know nothing about the Quran; Egypt will never experience success or renaissance on any level unless Al-Azhar institution is closed down or at least it should be stripped of its too much meddling interference and influence in media and in society. The Azharite curricula need an all-out reform and radical change. As for slavery and enslavement, we refer you to our book, in English, titled "Slavery: A Fundamental Historical Overview", found on this link:

How The Holy Quran Is Written

Published in January 16, 2018

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, … Does a copy/manuscript of the Quran, written by Prophet Muhammad himself, exist? How would we be so sure that the Quranic text is written in the right manner?! How should we recite/read the Quran in the best manner?  … Thank you …      

Answer:

 The Lord God preserves the Quranic text Himself; Muhammad wrote the entire Quranic text in its present arrangement of verses and Chapters as per the divine revelation. There is nothing called recitation of the Quran; we are never to sing its text as if it were a song; you should read the Quran with your eyes and/or tongue while pondering and reflecting on its verses.

Polytheists Are Undermining the Quran

Published in January 16, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Some ancient authors of the Middle-Ages wrote about 'missing' verses from the Quran!............. How could they be refuted?! Why did they write such a flagrant lie?! … Thank you …   

Answer:

 The Lord God preserves the Quranic text Himself; Muhammad wrote the entire Quranic text in its present arrangement of verses and Chapters as per the divine revelation.

http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=16981

The aim of such polytheistic authors of the Muhammadans in the Abbasid Era is to undermine and cast doubt on the Quran and to place more importance/emphasis on the hadiths they invented and on their fiqh views/fatwas.

Congratulations In Advance

Published in January 16, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I admire your articles about the right of Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men; yet, am I allowed to marry an atheist man? The fact is that I love my fiancé and he has a very good moral character, but he told me from day-one that he does not believe in God or in the Hereafter; he told me he respects Islam and it's OK for him if I raise our kids (if we would have any when we are married) as Muslims. Would such marriage be valid in Islam? you have mentioned that Muslim women can marry peaceful Christian and Jewish men....... What about peaceful atheist men? What about the following Quranic verses:.....,.....,.......,.......?  … Thank you …     

Answer:

 You have not read our articles very well; atheist men are included in this view of ours; the focus is on marrying peaceful men regardless of their religious denominations (or lack thereof); the Quranic verses you mention refer to polytheists in terms of aggression and violent behavior and not in terms of faiths/beliefs inside the souls/hearts, judged only by the Lord God on the Last Day. Your marrying a peaceful atheist man is legal in Islam; this marriage is better than marrying a hypocrite who employs religiosity to deceive others and make money. We congratulate you in advance for your upcoming nuptials.

Innocence in Relationships

Published in January 17, 2018

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … I've begun recently to read your archive of books, articles, and fatwas; I dislike very much your fatwa titled "An Innocent Heart" published in May 17, 2013, found in English on this link (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=15884). This fatwa contradicts your view of small sins/mishaps or mistakes of sexual nature (e.g., lustful looks and touches) which should be avoided as they may lead to the grave sin of fornication; I cannot accept that my own daughter would have a male friend like the one mentioned in this fatwa; I'd like to know why you have approved of the conduct mentioned in this fatwa as if the young man and the young woman were like brother and sister?! Would you please explain this further to me?!  …  Thank you …        

Answer:

 Our fatwa does not contradict the fact that small sins/mistakes are prohibited and one would rather avoid them as much as possible; yet, it is impossible to avoid all mishaps of sexual nature (i.e., sexual thinking or lustful looks) all day long or within all of one's life duration. The Lord God will forgive us the small sins if we avoid grave ones like fornication: "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). Innocent relationships between young men and young women are OK if sexual feelings are not involved, and this should be within awareness and responsibility of both sides and their respective families and , of course, within sound religious awareness. This is better than the segregation of sexes which leads inevitable to promiscuity, immorality, rape crimes, and psychological problems as well as the emergence of a percentage of lesbians and homosexuals. This happens in societies where veils (hijab and/or niqab) spread. This segregation is against Islam which gives women rights equal to the rights of men. See our book, in English, titled "Women's Right to Aspire to the Presidency of Any Islamic State", found in English on this link: (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=79). The Quran tells us about the equality of sexes within the Yathreb city-state; women retired in mosques for extended durations involving prolonged acts of worship with their husbands (see 2:187) and (dis)believing women played active roles in society (see 9:67-72). This means there was no veils (hijab or niqab) and no segregation. You are more than welcome to our Quranism website.

Secularism and Islam

Published in January 17, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … In Kurdistan, we have established our organization for tolerance, www.tolerancy.org, and I'd like you know about you how Islam supports secularism … Not every secular person is an atheist or an anti-religious activist, you know … Thank you …

Answer:

 We have written a lot about proving the fact that True Islam (i.e., the monotheism within Quranism) has no room for clergymen of any type or for theocracy. Islam asserts absolute religious freedom for all peaceful citizens regardless of their religious sects/denominations (or lack thereof). It is forbidden to mix religion and politics. We refer you to our book titled "A Warning for Muslims against Mixing Politics with Religion".

Mosques of Houthis!

Published in January 17, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I live in Yemen within an area controlled by Houthis … Within the Friday congregational prayers, they incorporate in their sermons chanting songs and slogans of political nature; is this OK in Islam or not?! …  Thank you …    

Answer:

  This is not OK at all; their devilish prayers is to worship leaders of the Houthis and they never dedicate their prayers to worshiping the Lord God. You should never enter into such mosques of polytheists.

Carrying Loads of Sins

Published in January 18, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I know quite well that the Quran does not contain contradictions; yet, I'd like you to explain briefly for me how you'd reconcile these two verses: "So let them carry their loads complete on the Day of Resurrection, and some of the loads of those they misguided without knowledge. Evil is what they carry." (16:25); "No burdened soul can carry the burden of another. Even if one weighted down calls for help with its burden, nothing can be lifted from it, even if they were related..." (35:18)? …  Thank you …

Answer:

 Those misguided ones who are misguiding others will bear the burden/loads of sins because of those who were misguided by their deeds, stances, and words. The misguided ones who did not aim or try to misguide others will bear the sins of their own deeds, stances, and words only; no one (a relative or a friend) will share such sins with them. Thus, those who intentionally misguide others by urging them to follow their example of misguidance will bear more sins than those who confine their misguidance to their own souls.

Hypocrites among the People of the Book

Published in January 18, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  …  Were there anyhypocrites among the People of the Book during Prophet Muhammad's lifetime in Yathreb? What do you think? … Thank you …     

Answer:

 Yes, of course. During Muhammad's lifetime, the People of the Book were divided into three categories: "Then We passed the Book to those of Our servants whom We chose. Some of them wrong their souls, and some follow a middle course, and some are in the foremost in good deeds by God's leave; that is the greatest blessing." (34:32). Those polytheistic disbelievers among them included hypocrites who feigned conversion to Islam in order to undermine the new faith. The disobedient disbelievers among the Israelites are labeled in the Quran as (Jews). The hypocrites of Yathreb were not only Arabs; among them were Jews or the disobedient disbelievers among the Israelites of Arabia. Those hypocritical Jews who feigned being Muslims are mentioned here: "Some of the People of the Book say, "Believe in what was revealed to the believers at the beginning of the day, and reject it at its end, so that they may return." And trust none except those who follow your religion."..." (3:72-73). Those hypocritical Jews who feigned conversion schemed many plots and intrigues while seeking to make Arabs cast doubt on the Quran: "O People of the Book! Why do you confound the truth with falsehood, and knowingly conceal the truth?" (3:71); "And among them are those who twist the Scripture with their tongues, that you may think it from the Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say, "It is from God," when it is not from God. They tell lies and attribute them to God, knowingly." (3:78); "How will God guide a people who disbelieved after having believed, and had witnessed that the messenger is true, and the clear proofs had come to them? God does not guide the unjust people." (3:86); "Say, "O People of the Scripture, why do you hinder from God's path those who believe, seeking to distort it, even though you are witnesses? God is not unaware of what you do." O you who believe! If you obey a party of those who were given the Scripture, they will turn you, after your belief, into disbelievers." (3:99-100). This image of hypocrites applies to those who follow their footsteps in all eras: "Say, "Shall I inform you of worse than that for retribution from God? He whom God has cursed, and with whom He became angry; and He turned some of them into apes, and swine, and idol worshipers. These are in a worse position, and further away from the right way." When they come to you, they say, "We believe," though they have entered with disbelief, and they have departed with it. But God is well aware of what they hide." (5:60-61).

About the Quranic Verse 31:18

Published in January 18, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … What is the meaning of this Quranic phrase: "Do not lift your cheek high at people..." (31:18)? … Thank you … 

Answer:

 We are commanded in this Quranic phrase to avoid arrogance and pride; the arrogant ignoramuses show certain gestures and body-language and treat people with haughtiness; they deserve being ridiculed in the Quran and being despised by people who are disgusted by their pride. Chief among those arrogant ignoramuses those who argue within religion while defending falsehood: "And among the people is he who argues about God without knowledge, or guidance, or an enlightening Book. Turning aside in arrogance, to lead away from the Path of God. He will have humiliation in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection We will make him taste the torment of burning." (22:8-9); they will be disgraced in Hell in case they die without repentance: "Among the people is he who trades in distracting tales; intending, without knowledge, to lead away from God's Way, and to make a mockery of it. These will have a humiliating torment. And when Our Verses are read to him, he turns away in pride, as though he did not hear them, as though there is deafness in his ears. So inform him of a painful torment." (31:6-7). The likes of those arrogant ignoramuses exist in all eras within all communities; this is why the Muhammadans in their societies live in veritable hell since those arrogant ignoramuses control their cultural and religious lives.

A Question of Inheritance

Published in January 19, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … My father died and the inheritors are myself (a man) and two other sons (i.e., my two brothers); our mother died many years before our father's death … Our father's written will and testament includes settling his debts by selling his apartment and to distribute the rest of the money (i.e., expected by my late father to be LE 20000) as follows: LE 5000 for my elder brother, LE 5000 for me (the middle brother), and LE 10000 for the youngest, last brother. Yet, after settling all debts, the remaining sum was LE 18000; each of us (three inheritors) has received LE 6000. A sheikh in the mosque told us to do so instead of giving our youngest brother more money unjustly; he told us to divide the sum in equal shares. Having converted to Quranism months ago, I feel now that I'm guilty; should I and my elder brother give more money to our youngest brother as per the written will and testament of our father?! Any advice? What is your own view in that case? …  Thank you …

Answer:

 You acted wisely by settling your father's debts first. May God bless you. Your father had no right to give your youngest brother more than his due share of the inheritance money; he should have given him money, in his will, while he was alive away from the inheritance money; i.e., away from distributing inheritance money as per Quranic sharia laws; yet, you can ease your conscience by re-distributing the sum of LE 18000 this way while bearing in mind honoring your father's will: LE 8000 for your youngest brother and LE 5000 for each of the other two brothers.

Breastfeeding and Marriage, Again!

Published in January 19, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I's still confused regarding breastfeeding and the cases when men (or their brothers) cannot marry the daughters of their wet-nurses ........... What about hadiths covering this topic? … Thank you …    

Answer:

  We have mentioned many times that we, as a Quranist Muslim  thinker, never believe in any hadiths; Muhammad never uttered any of them; the hadiths about breastfeeding are no exception to this rule; all of them contradict the Quran. The male baby who is breastfed for two years (and not a lesser duration) is a brother to the daughters of the wet-nurse who breastfed him; he cannot marry any of the daughters of this wet-nurse; yet, any of his brothers can marry the daughters of the same woman provided she did not breastfed them. If the woman breastfed the male baby for merely few times, he is NOT a brother to her daughters and he can marry one of them if he likes.

We Never Care to Guide Anyone

Published in January 20, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I'm not a thoroughly experienced or learned man; despite the fact that I find your Quranist trend to be nearer to the Truth as far as religion is concerned, I'm still skeptic and I find myself nearer to agnosticism, though I ardently seek to reach God ......... In fact, the more I read your archive of writings, the more I'm convinced that you are a 'good merchant' who knows the best way to display his intellectual merchandise to entice readers/viewers into buying into his ideas. I'm afraid I'm still wondering what 'true Islam' is. I feel extremely worried about my fate in the Hereafter. I desire that you tell me (within a detailed answer) what exactly drives you to be so convinced that Quranism is True Islam! Are you so sure that you are following the Straight Path?! … Thank you …  

Answer:

 We refuse your likening us to a 'merchant' of intellectual merchandise; we will never be deemed as such. Our project of reform is based on never imposing our views on anyone and to ascribe our views to ourselves while bearing full responsibility for them (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=15303). We never ask for reward/praise or money from anyone and we forgive/pardon, as much as we can, those who insult our person. We never care to guide you or anyone else; we do not care if you are (mis)guided; it is up to you to decide for yourself whether you are convinced or will be denying the Quranic Truth. This is your own future in the Hereafter within full freedom; every human being is free to choose his/her destiny, as you know. We never care to be blamed by anyone; we are not keen on seeking to convince you (or anyone else) with anything; our mission is confined to expressing our reformist, Quranist views in our website within fatwas, articles, books, and YouTube videos. The only advice we can give you here is to ponder on our archive within a critical mind while imploring the Lord God to guide you to the Quranic Truth. Later on, you can decide freely for yourself if you will be a Quranist or not. Whatever your future choice might be, we do not care about anyone's fate in the Hereafter; we care only about our own fate on the Last Day.

A Vow Made with Satan

Published in January 20, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Months ago, I made a vow (or a solemn promise/oath) to God to never have sex with my wife again; yet, I reneged on my word/promise several times and could not resist having sex with her! I feel sinful! What is to be done to atone for the sin of breaking the vow with God?! Could I revoke this vow? How is this to be done without incurring God's wrath? Any advice?! … Thank you …        

Answer:

 This vow or solemn oath is never made with the Lord God but with Satan the Devil. Any vows made with the Lord God should involve goodness, justice, right, and charity and never injustices, sins, and harm. Your being bent on depriving yourself and your wife of legal, marital sex is something evil, irreligious, and unjust. You must repent of such a sin; i.e., making devilish vows which please Satan. You must please yourself and your wife by giving her rights which include to have sex with her own husband and to be treated kindly by him instead of forsaking her company and her bed.
