When Ignoramuses Approach the Quran!

Published in May 11, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  I do not believe in the Quran..........The Quran mentions that all creatures are in pairs or two sexes; this is wrong; as per biology, there are creatures which reproduce asexually. What do you think?! … Thank you …    

Answer:

 The human knowledge is limited; we do not know all pairs created in the universe: "Glory be to Him who created all the pairs; of what the earth produces, and of their own selves, and of what they do not know. " (36:36). Likewise, we do not know all about the metaphysical realms of the Barsakh levels where angels (e.g., Gabriel the Holy Spirit), jinn, and devils exist; this is about the archangel Gabriel: "And they ask you about the Spirit. Say, "The Spirit belongs to the domain of my Lord; and you were given only little knowledge."" (17:85). Human knowledge about anything is permitted only by the Divine Will of the Dominant Lord God: "...they cannot grasp any of His knowledge, except as He wills..." (2:255). Human knowledge cannot allow us to know all about human souls, death, the outer space, time which envelopes everything, black and white holes, galaxies, etc., let alone Barsakh levels within the metaphysical realm. Those ignoramuses who deify science, however limited their knowledge is, and ridicule God's Word are mentioned here: "When their messengers came to them with clear proofs, they rejoiced in the knowledge they had, and the very things they used to ridicule besieged them." (40:83). They are among disbelievers whose moment of dying will be within unfelt-before fear as the angels of death take their souls while informing them of their fate in Hell. We refer you to our books in English about death, Barsakh, and the miraculous scientific indications in the Quranic text, found on these links respectively:

Wearing Perfume & Adulteresses

Published in May 12, 2019

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … A sheikh in his Friday sermon quoted the hadith that if women would wear perfumes outdoors they are like adulteresses and this caused a panic among the women of our village! Would you refute this hadith, please?! … Thank you …

Answer:

 This is utter nonsense; misogynist fiqh scholars with filthy minds, corrupt line of thought, and foul deeds fabricated such a silly hadith which has nothing to do with Muhammad of course. Did they flog such women who wore perfumes as if they had committed adultery/fornication?! Of course not! Sunnite hadiths and fiqh are nothing but devilish revelations which have nothing to do with Islam.

About the Quranic Verse 19:77

Published in May 12, 2019

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Would this verse apply to all those who wish to be rich and have many kids: "Have you seen him who denied Our Verses, and said, "I will be given wealth and children"?" (19:77)? Any ideas? … Thank you …

Answer:

 No; this verse is about those disbelievers who assume they will be rich proprietors with progeny in Paradise after their death despite their disbelief. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "Have you seen him who denied Our Verses, and said, "I will be given wealth and children"? Did he look into the future, or did he receive a promise from the Dominant Lord? No indeed! We will write what he says, and will keep extending the torment for him. Then We will inherit from him what he speaks of, and he will come to Us alone." (19:77-80). Such a claim in 19:77 by disbelievers/polytheists is never expressed by pious monotheists who perform many good deeds, never make distinction among the Lord God's prophets/messengers, and they believe in the Last Day and in the Quran as the Only Source of Islam.

Believers Are Brethren

Published in May 12, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What is meant by these Quranic verses: "If two groups of believers fight each other, reconcile between them...The believers are brethren, so reconcile between your brethren..." (49:9-10)? How come that fighting parties are brethren?! … Thank you …    

Answer:

 The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "If two groups of believers fight each other, reconcile between them. But if one group aggresses against the other, fight the aggressing group until it complies with God's command. Once it has complied, reconcile between them with justice, and be equitable. God loves the equitable. The believers are brethren, so reconcile between your brethren, and remain conscious of God within piety, so that you may receive mercy." (49:9-10). The Quranic term (brethren) in all contexts (e.g., 4:94, 9:11, and the Quranic Chapter 49) refers to Islam/belief in terms of peaceful behavior. Disbelief in terms of behavior is aggression and violent demeanor against peaceful people. All people may judge any behaviors (of individuals, regimes, or countries) as peaceful or violent. Hence, peaceful countries are Muslim countries in terms of demeanor regardless of faith(s) and denomination(s). As for Islam/belief in terms of faith inside hearts/souls of human beings, this is judged only by the Lord God on the Last Day.

Usury within Trade

Published in May 13, 2019

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … A bank agreed to give me a loan at 4% interest.....I intend to invest and work in trade....... Is this deemed as prohibited usury within Islam or not?! … Thank you …      

Answer:

 No. This is OK. We have written about this in several previous fatwas. Mutual agreement within trade/commerce is not usury, provided that there are no complex interest rates; if there are complex interest rates, the sin falls on the lenders and not the needy borrowers. We refer you to our article, in English, titled "The Usury Battle", found on this link:

About the Quranic Verse 67:15

Published in May 13, 2019

 

  

Question: … Dear Sir, …  What is meant by the underlined term in this verse: "It is He who made the earth manageable for you, so travel its regions, and eat of His provisions..." (67:15)? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 This means that the Lord God has created the earth (and indeed the whole universe) and has committed it to the service of humankind. For more details, see (Chapter I) of our book, in English, titled "The West and the Miraculous Scientific Indications in the Holy Quran", found on this link:

We Are Not Interested in Guiding Others to Quranism

Published in May 13, 2019

 

 

 

Question: … Your Quran is filled with nonsensical words and phrases, with insects and birds talking to human beings............................... I know my words may cause you extreme pain like a woman in labor................... I believe in God's existence, but the Quran is not God's Word and I will never believe in this book which has no author! Maybe its author is the man named Muhammad! ................ You are worse than Sunnites, Shiites, and Sufis who believe in myths because you try in vain (within your writings and videos) to beautify the ugly, hideous face of a religion of Satan and terrorism: Islam! ............... You should stop defending a book of mythology known as the Quran! It has nothing to do with God! Who cares about your website, anyway?! Few people read the material in it! Wake up! …        

Answer:

 So, you are a believer in God the Creator but you reject the Quran. This your choice and your freedom; you are responsible for your choices on the Day of Judgment. We are not interested in guiding you and others to Quranism as the Only True Islam; people are free to choose for themselves. We are interested in guiding ourselves in order to be among winners on the Last Day in Paradise. All Quranists will be judged on the Day of the Resurrection like the rest of humanity, and the Lord God will settle human beings' religious differences and disputes. We never force anyone to read about Quranism in our website to be guided to the Only True Islam. Our knowledge of the Quran tells us that its text is easy to understand by ordinary people. It is part of freedom of choice to (dis)believe in the Quran and to (dis)obey the Lord God. As for your insulting our person in your email message, we forgive you as per the commands of the Lord God in the Quran: "We did not create the heavens and the earth, and what lies between them, except with truth. The Hour is coming, so forgive with gracious forgiveness." (15:85); "As for his statement: "My Lord, these are a people who do not believe." Pardon them, and say, "Peace." They will come to know." (43:88-89); "Tell those who believe to forgive those who do not hope for the Days of God. He will fully recompense people for whatever they have earned, Whoever does a good deed, it is for his soul; and whoever commits evil, it is against it; then to your Lord you will be returned." (45:14-15).

About the Fatimid Caliph Al-Hakim

Published in May 14, 2019

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, …  I am a Shiite Ismaili woman from Syria and I admire your great books very much; I like your stance against Wahabism  the religion of terrorism; you know, of course, that we suffer from Wahabi terrorism in Syria; Wahabis there persecute and kill Shiites......... I dislike very much your insulting and belittling of the Shiite grand imam and great caliph Al-Hakim who ruled the Fatimid caliphate in Cairo, Egypt. You have to bear in mind that Sunnite authors and historians have distorted the image of Al-Hakim after his death by claiming that he was a self-deified, eccentric tyrant; in Shiite books of history, Al-Hakim is described as an ascetic, pious hermit who stood against sins of all types: he banned consumption of the molokhyia soup (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulukhiyah) for a while because of an epidemic; he banned grapes to stop the production of wine, prohibited in Islam as you know......... Do not forget that the Shiite Fatimids are the ones who built the city of Cairo, the capital of Egypt until today, and they built Al-Azhar........... The Fatimids had their great civilization based on science; yet, the Fatimid caliphate was destroyed by the cursed Saladin; he even burned down the great library of the Fatimids to destroy scientific books and fiqh books of Ismaili Shiites........ By the way, the Ismaili Shiites (including the Fatimids) never imposed their religion by force on anyone, past or present, as they respect freedom of religion..............Therefore, I beseech you not to rely on books of Sunnite historians who distort the image of the imams of the Shiite Ismailism; Wahabi extremists use such books to find 'justifications' and pretexts to persecute today's Shiites everywhere..........  … Thank you …      

Answer:

 You are more than welcome to our Quranism website. I beg you to try to understand our stance; we support, of course, absolute religious freedom for everyone (including preaching, proselytization, and acts of worship), and we are against compulsion in religion and religious persecution. In our Quranist call of religious reform, we refute the earthly/terrestrial religions of the Shiite, Sunnite, and Sufi Muhammadans, regardless of the doctrinessubsumed under these three broad labels of the Shiite, Sunnite, and Sufi religions. We do not care for being blamed by any of the Muhammadans. We urge all Muhammadans to use the Quran as the Only Criterion to judge traditions passed down by their Shiite, Sunnite, and Sufi forefathers.  What we write against the Shiite and Sufi religions appeals very much to the Sunnites; likewise, what we write against the Sunnite religion appeals very much to the Shiites. Yet, we do not write within the purpose of pleasing or infuriating any persons or groups; anyway, the Shiite, Sunnite, and Sufi Muhammadans hate our Qurnaism (which is True Islam, in our view), because it refutes, undermines, exposes, questions, and criticizes their faith tenets. We write what we see as the truth based on proofs from the Quran and from history. We rely on (1) books by Sunnite authors when we criticize history and religion of the Sunnites; (2) books by Shiite authors when we criticize history and religion of the Shiites; and (3) books by Sufi authors when we criticize history and religion of the Sufis. Our views which you dislike regarding Al-Hakim are based on the books by the Egyptian Shiite historian Al-Makrizi, who, in his turn, quotes Shiite historians who were contemporaries of the Fatimid caliphs; Al-Makrizi is known for his defending Shiites in his books. By the way, several Shiite researchers of today try (in vain) to 'justify' deeds, stances, and eccentricities of Al-Hakim; yet, they could not deny or 'justify' his self-deification which is the basis of the Druze religion (which was a Shiite doctrine in the past), as this full-fledged terrestrial religion deifies rulers in general and it is an offshoot of Shiite Ismailism.

Creators along with the Lord God?!

Published in May 14, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I often enter into many discussions with Shiites, Sunnites, and Sufis online and face to face because I'm preaching Quranism to them if they desire guidance...................I've tried in vain to refute their ideas of deifying Prophet Muhammad; many of them have already memorized the Quran; please inform me about the suitable Quranic verses that I can quote to refute their deifying mortals.................. … Thank you …   

Answer:

 Of course, the Lord God is the Only Creator and Originator of the heavens and the earth (i.e., the universe with its stars, galaxies, metaphysical realm, etc.), and no mortal creatures participated in the process of creating the universe. This means that we must never sanctify deify/worship any allies/saints/gods besides Allah; yet, most people are polytheists who deify mortals; e.g., they deify Muhammad, Christ, Buddha, Hussein, Mary, Fatima,...etc., and they assume that such deified human beings are immortal and never died! You can advise those Muhammadans who enter into discussions with you to ponder the following Quranic verses: "Do they worship those who create nothing, and are themselves created?" (7:191); "Say, "Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?" Say, "God." Say, "Have you taken besides Him protectors, who have no power to profit or harm even themselves?" Say, "Are the blind and the seeing equal? Or are darkness and light equal? Or have they assigned to God associates, who created the likes of His creation, so that the creations seemed to them alike? Say, "God is the Creator of all things, and He is The Dominant One."" (13:16); "Those they invoke besides God create nothing, but are themselves created. They are dead, not alive; and they do not know when they will be resurrected. Your God is one God. As for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, their hearts are in denial, and they are arrogant." (16:20-22); "Is He who creates like him who does not create? Will you not remember?" (16:17); "And yet, instead of Him, they produce for themselves gods that create nothing, but are themselves created; that have no power to harm or benefit themselves; and no power over life, death, or resurrection." (25:3).

About the Quranic Verse 25:45

Published in May 14, 2019

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  What is intended by mentioning the movement of a shadow in 25:45? Any ideas?… Thank you …     

Answer:

 The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "Do you not see how your Lord extends the shadow? Had He willed, He could have made it still. And We made the sun a pointer to it. Then We withdraw it towards Us gradually." (25:45-46). This movement of shadows prove that the earth rotates around its axis and around the sun; if such movements of heavenly bodies inside the solar system, or indeed the Milky Way galaxy, would stop, shadows will stop moving; the Lord God describes himself here: "Doer of whatever He wills." (85:16).

About the Quranic Verse 41:19

Published in May 15, 2019

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, …  What is meant by the underlined verb in this verse: "The Day when God's enemies are herded forcibly into the Fire." (41:19)? Any ideas?  …  Thank you …        

Answer:

 You have to bear in mind that all humanity; i.e., all resurrected human beings from Adam till the last person on earth before the Last Day, will be gathered in one location; therefore, the Lord God's angels must organize/align them by force in a row; the disbelieving sinners will be forcibly pushed into Hell as per 41:19. This is asserted here: "On the Day when We gather from every community a group of those who rejected Our Verses; and they will be herded. Until, when they arrive, He will say, "Did you reject My Verses without comprehending them? Or what is it you were doing?"" (27:83-84).

Do Not Participate in Such Discussions

Published in May 15, 2019

 

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … I held many discussions with a Christian friend of mine who has read the Quran; he insists on telling me that God granted Christ divine power as per the miracles mentioned in 5:110 and this means that Christ is a god/deity! I told him he's misinterpreted 5:110 on purpose! Please tell me anything so that I refute his view!  … Thank you …

Answer:

 Do not participate in such discussions with those who do not believe in the Quran; they will never be convinced that the Quran is the Lord God's Word. Haters and deniers of the Quran love to quote decontextualized (parts of) Quranic verses while distorting their meanings to accommodate certain polytheistic notions as per their whims. Signs and miracles were granted to some prophets/messengers of the Lord God as proofs to their being sent by Him: "...No messenger could bring a sign/miracle except with the permission of God..." (13:38). As per the Quranic stories, some messengers were given the sign to predict/know the future, such as Joseph and Jesus, but they were never given God-like Omniscience which is confined to the Lord God: "The Knower of the Invisible; He does not disclose His Invisible to anyone. Except to a Messenger of His choosing..." (72:26-27); "...Nor will God inform you of the future, but God elects from among His messengers whom He wills. So believe in God and His messengers..." (3:179). As per the Quranic stories, Noah (see 11:31) and Muhammad (see 6:50, 46:9, and 7:188) never knew the future. Sadly, the Muhammadans reject these verses as they believe in thousands of hadiths (predicting future in this world and the next) ascribed to Muhammad after his death. This has also led the Muhammadans to believe in predictions by their Shiite, Sufi, and Sunnite imams/saints! This means that polytheism/disbelief of the Muhammadans is the same, however different their labels, notions, tenets, and concepts are, since they deify things, items, tombs, and mortals; this applies to Christians in their doctrines as well. It is per the Lord God's permission that Jesus performed miracles; see 5:110 and 3:49-51. Your friend disregarded this fact and other Quranic facts which prove that Jesus was a mortal prophet; see 19:34-36 and 5:116-118. We advise you not to waste your time with your Christian friend or any Christians; Muhammadans are more misled and misguided than Christians. You should read more within our website of Quranism to know more about True Islam.

The Corpse of the Drowned Moses' Pharaoh

Published in May 15, 2019

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  Some people assume that the Quranic verse 10:92 is a proof that one of the mummies of the Ramses dynasty preserved in the Egyptian Museum, in Cairo, Egypt, belongs to Moses' Pharaoh; is this true or not? Any ideas? …  Thank you …

Answer:

 This is not true. The corpse of Moses' Pharaoh is not mummified and it will never be found, we think. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "And We delivered the Israelites across the sea. Pharaoh and his troops pursued them, defiantly and aggressively. Until, when he was about to drown, he said, "I believe that there is no god except the One the Israelites believe in, and I am of those who submit." Now? When you have rebelled before, and been of the corrupters? Today We will preserve your body, so that you become a sign for those after you. But most people are heedless of Our signs " (10:90-92). We infer from the underlined part that this sign is only for the Israelites who saw the corpse of the drowned self-deified Pharaoh thrown to the shore by the waves of the Red Sea. This is to assure them that self-deified persons are actually mortals; by the way, how many enthroned tyrants of the Arab countries took heed of the corpse of the murdered, self-deified Kaddafi, the tyrannical pharaoh of Libya?! None, we think! Of course, since the deep-state men of Moses' Pharaoh drowned along with him in the Red Sea, no one mummified/embalmed the corpse of Pharaoh; all dead bodies decompose and turn into dust within the earth, as per the Lord God's Divine Will, and this fact was told by Moses to Pharaoh: "From it We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will bring you out another time. We showed him Our signs, all of them, but he denied and refused. He said, "Did you come to us to drive us out of our land with your magic, O Moses?" (20:55-57).

Cleaning Oneself after Urination

Published in May 16, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … After urinating, am I to rub the head of my penis with a tissue or a cloth three times and then I'd clean the tip of my penis with water as per Sunnite fiqh rules?! I never do that; once I empty my bladder, I put my penis back into my underwear without cleaning it at all with or without water! Does this make me impure even if I perform ablution before the daily prayers?! Any ideas? … Thank you …     

Answer:

 Do not describe yourself (or anyone else) as 'impure'; the human body is never impure. After urination, a man must clean the head/tip of his penis with water or with any clean cloth/tissue and NOT with his underwear.

Undermining and Insulting Muhammad

Published in May 16, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … Some books of the Sunnite authors assume that Muhammad had suffered from epilepsy as a result of receiving the Quranic revelation by the archangel Gabriel! How can such a myth be refuted using the Quran?  … Thank you for taking time to answer me … 

Answer:

 All books of fiqh, hadiths, fake biographies of Muhammad, and interpretation/exegeses of the Quran contains many insults to undermine the Lord God, the Quran, and Muhammad. We have written a lot about this topic; e.g., see our book on Naskh. Of course, the Meccan disbelievers of Qorayish accused Muhammad of being a sorcerer/magician and of being a liar and a madman. The imams/authors of the Muhammadans (e.g., Al-Bokhary) oscillated between deifying Muhammad and undermining/insulting him; the prophets/messengers of the Lord God are the best people chosen by the Lord God to receive revelation. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "...God knows best where to place His message..." (6:124). Of course, we, Dr. A. S. Mansour, are the one who defends Muhammad and adheres to the Message conveyed by Muhammad from the Lord God: the Holy Quran. For more details about how Sunnite authors insult and undermine Muhammad, see, for instance, our two books, in English, titled "The Quran: Sufficient as a Source of Islamic Legislation" and "Intercession between Islam and the Muhammadans" found on these two links, respectively:

About the Quranic Verses 83:7-21

Published in May 16, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The Quranic Chapter 56 divides the Paradise dwellers into two categories; yet, the Quranic verses 83:7-21 does not mention this! What do you think?…  Thank you …    

Answer:

 There is no contradiction at all between the Quranic Chapters 56 and 83. In the context of 83:7-21, we see a comparison between sinners/disbelievers in Hell and the pious, good monotheists in Paradise. That is all. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "Not at all. The record of the wicked is in Sijjeen. But how can you know what Sijjeen is? A numerical book. Woe on that Day to the deniers. Those who deny the Day of Judgment. But none denies it except the sinful aggressor. When Our Verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the ancients." Not at all. Their hearts have become corroded by what they used to earn. Not at all. On that Day, they will be screened from their Lord. Then they will roast in Hell. Then it will be said, "This is what you used to deny." No indeed; the record of the righteous is in Elliyyeen. But how can you know what Elliyyoon is? A numerical book. Witnessed by those brought near." (83:7-21).

May the Lord God Bless and Reward you, Brother

Published in May 17, 2019

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Peace be with you; let me introduce myself to you; I live in Germany (my family immigrated there years ago), and I was born within a Christian Arab family before my conversion to Islam. I was a devout Christian, but I rejected Christianity after I studied the Bible in detail (in many versions and translations), along with books of many Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant theologians; I always noticed that Christians around me never apply the teachings of the New Testament in their lives and they disregard the Old testament; no one among them ever specified time to read and study the Bible; they care only about obeying priests and clergymen of the church. I came to the conclusion that the Bible is not the Word of God; at first, I became an atheist for a short period of time. My curiosity led me to read books of other world religions. I read the Quran which is the most hated book in Europe. Islam is much insulted, hated, and feared in the West and I kept wondering why this is the case since I found logic and beauty in the Quran. After a long duration of pondering on the Quran, I converted to Islam after I realized the fact that the Quran is the Lord God's Word. Of course, I hated hadiths and fiqh very much and I rejected them. I found True Islam in your great Quranism website and in your YouTube videos. I appreciate the efforts you make to show people what True Islam is. Keep up the good work. Of course, 'Muslims' whom I know in Germany (or via social media) accused me of being a heretic or an infidel when they knew about my being a Sunna-denier and a Quranist Muslim! I realize now how their beliefs have nothing to do with Islam (i.e. the Quran). In fact, Islam must be proselytized among the Muhammadans first, as you have written before. I feel sad that the West media is ignoring a great thinker like you. It's a tragic fact that ignoramuses fill the internet; they assume they attack, criticize, and undermine traditions; this is not enough; they never talk about True Islam found exclusively in the Quran......... I need to find access to your books in PDF versions. By the way, I hope you would enunciate and raise your voice in your YouTube videos. I never enter into mosques of the Wahabis or the Sufis (and other Muhammadans) inside Germany; most Muslims I know there believe in hadiths! I feel that I cannot contact them; my Christian family and relatives do not like to talk to me since my conversion to Islam....... I feel very lonely..... Do not you know any Quranist mosques/centers in Germany? This is my twitter account: https://twitter.com/yahiaih......... Here's the link of my book (in Arabic) about my criticizing the Biblical text: https://archive.org/details/Mukaddas_version2   … Thank you …    

Answer:

 May the Lord God bless and reward you, brother. Thank you for your words and comments; our endeavors in our website and the YouTube channel are far from being perfect because we work mostly alone and depend on volunteers. Our relative the Egyptian-Canadian Dr. Othman M. Ali helps us in the administration of our website; our son Mr. Mohamed Mansour makes the videos (directing, editing, etc.); our son Mr. Amir Mansour is our webmaster and he offers technical support. The Egyptian Mr. Ahmed Fathy translates our writings (fatwas, articles, and books) into English and French and provides the English subtitles to our YouTube videos. The Egyptian-American Mr. Amin Rifaat uploads our PDF books (in Arabic) here:

 Indeed, if it had not been for the money donations by some noble Quranists, our website and YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ahlalquran1) would have been removed from the cyberspace. In fact, so far, we have only two articles of ours translated into German; here are the links for them:

 We are now at the age of 70; we hope our website and YouTube channel would develop and go on; we welcome you to our website as a writer; you are a very cultured, knowledgeable person; you can use a pseudonym if you do not like to use your real name. We will appreciate your specifying some time to post articles on our website. We are regret to say that we do not know if there is a mosque for Quranists in Germany; few German Quranists contact us via email using pseudonyms and not their real names. We hope that some of them would read your email message here and contact you via twitter. Please accept my best wishes and regards. Your brother, Dr. A. S. Mansour.

Desecrating Copies of the Quran by the Muhammadans?!

Published in May 17, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … In most mosques of Egypt, the imams of the nightly congregational prayers in Ramadan known as Taraweeh put big copies of the Quran before their eyes, on book-holders, and this is, I think, is a type of desecration of the Quran; when I protested against this, a man reminded me that Moses, in the Quranic story, threw the Tablets in a fit of fury.........What do you think?   … Thank you …  

Answer:

 First of all, religious legislations are NOT to be derived or inferred from Quranic stories. Secondly, there is nothing in Islam called Taraweeh; in the Sunnite books, authors admit that such prayers never existed during Muhammad's era; this invention began during the reign of the caliph Omar. There is nothing called desecration of the Quran; the Muhammadans deify copies of the Quran as if they were sources of benediction or 'amulets' against evil; this is in contrast to making copies of the Quran on the level of their feet on book-holders as per their whims. True monotheists never deify things, items, or mortals. Of course, in Islamic prayers, one can read Quranic verses (after the Quranic Chapter One in every Raqa) from one's memory during prayers while making reading the entire Quranic text from copies of the Quran as another act of worship separate from prayers. What matters most is to attain piety from all acts of worship during one's lifetime. It is a blasphemy and a grave sin to sing the Quranic verses or to turn them into songs; this sin is committed inside mosques of the Muhammadans until now. Please do not try to advise them and you must avoid entering into their mosques. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "It is God who ridicules them, and leaves them bewildered in their transgression." (2:15); "As for those who do not believe in the Hereafter: We made their deeds appear good to them, so they wander aimlessly." (27:4).

Respect Is Not Sanctification

Published in May 18, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I've read your fatwas about not to sanctify/deify copies of the Quran and not to assume they bring benediction; those who burn them are merely doing this to paper and ink, as you've said; yet, what about those who insult copies of the Quran by burning them or by putting them under their feet to infuriate the masses of the Muhammadans?! … Thank you …  

Answer:

 Thank you for your good question; this is an important topic; we are not to deify/sanctify the copies of the Quran but we should respect them. This means that you do not prostrate to copies of the Quran or to kiss them; you are not to draw benediction (i.e., Baraka) from their presence or by touching them; their presence should never be assumed to ward off evil or keep off the envious eye,...etc. When we sit in our library-room, we put our copy of the Quran in a proper place before our eyes in front of us on our desk; this is what we are doing since our childhood. This is a form of respect and not deification/sanctification at all, of course. Before our interview within a Christian TV channel, I saw that the presenter (i.e., brother Rashid) had put a copy of the Quran on the floor; I requested politely from him to put it on his desk before we allowed him to begin his show and interview. By the way, we respect prophets/messengers of the Lord God but we never deify/sanctify them; this is because in True Islam, monotheists confine deification/sanctification to the Lord God. We respect our late father, but we never deify/sanctify him; we respect historical figures like the caliph Omar Ibn Abdul-Aziz, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, sheikh Mohamed Abdou, and Nasser Al-Saeed, but we never deify/sanctify them. There is no contradiction between to love and revere the Quran as God's Word and to respect the copies Quran without deification of them. We never care about those who burn or desecrate copies of the Quran to incite the ignorant masses among the Muhammadans. For more details about that topic, we refer you to our article, in English, titled "Desecration of the Holy Quran", found on this link:

About Fasting Linguistically

Published in May 18, 2019

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What is the difference between the two Arabic terms for "fasting": (Siyam) and (Soum)? … Thank you …        

Answer:

 There is no difference at all; they are exact synonyms; i.e., both terms are 100% synonymous in denotations and connotations.
