WHO ARE WE?
DURING THE PAST FOURTEEN CENTURIES, TRADITIONS, CUSTOMS, SUPERSTITIONS AND INNOVATIONS HAVE CREPT INTO ISLAM. GRADUALLY, THESE INNOVATIONS CAME TO BE VESTED WITH RELIGIOUS SOLEMNITY TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT ANYONE WHO QUESTIONS THEM FIND HIMSELF REGARDED AS THE DANGEROUS INNOVATOR AND HERETIC.
ISLAM TODAY IS LIKE A PRECIOUS JEWEL THAT IS BURIED UNDER PILES UPON PILES OF MAN-MADE INNOVATIONS. OUR AIM IS TO PURGE OUT THE INNOVATIONS, AND PRESENT THE JEWEL OF ISLAM TO THE WORLD.
To Save The Muslim Ummah
We Must Return To Obeying The Proph
"Anyone who disobeys GOD and His messenger has deserved the retribution of Hell, wherein they abide forever." (72:23)
Despite severe differences that plague the Muslim Ummah – Sectarian, tribal, political and economic differences – even military conflicts and vicious wars – there is one thing that the Muslims unanimously agree upon: That the Qur’an is the word of God that was uttered by the final Prophet Muhammad.
Every Muslim on earth regardless of sect, race, color, and language believes that Qur’an was uttered by the honorable messenger, upon inspiration from God, and that God has guaranteed its preservation and protection from the slightest distortion, addition or loss.
"Surely, we have sent down this message, and surely, we will preserve it" (15:9).
This fact – that the glorious Qur’an is God’s message to the world which was uttered by the Prophet Muhammad – is affirmed in Qur’an by the strongest oath:
"I swear by everything you see, and everything you do not see, this is the utterance of an honorable messenger.
It is not the utterance of a poet, rarely do you believe.
Nor is it the utterance of a soothsayer, rarely do you take heed.
A revelation from the Lord of the universe.

For whom the Lord loves, He chastises, even as a father does to the son he loves.

Obeying The Prophet
And, if he ever uttered any other words (i.e. Religious instructions other than the qur’an), We would have punished him severely … We would have stopped the revelation to him. None of you could have protected him from retribution." (69:38-47)
The Qur’an affirms that disobeying God and His messenger incurs humiliation, defeat, misery, and shame both in this life and in the Hereafter.
"Anyone who disregards My message shall suffer. A miserable life. Then, on the Day of Resurrection, we resurrect him blind. He will say, ‘My Lord, why did you resurrect me blind, when I used to be a seer?’ He will be told, ‘When our revelations came to you
You disregarded them. Consequently, you are now disregarded.’ We thus punish whoever transgresses, and refuses to believe the revelations of his Lord. Additionally, the retribution in the Hereafter is far worse and everlasting." (20:124-127)
"Whoever obeys the messenger is obeying GOD. As for those who turn away, we did not send you to be their guardian." (4:80)
"Anyone who opposes the messenger, after guidance had been pointed out for him, and follows other than the path of believers, we direct him in the direction he chose. He ends up in Hell; a miserable destiny." (4:115)
If we can rid our minds of the traditions, innovations, superstitions, and inherited ideas that were injected into our religion, and return to God and His messenger, we would realize that the present decline of the Muslim Ummah is the direct result of disobeying the Prophet.
What helped Satan in misleading the Muslims is that the blatant disobedience of
the Prophet takes the shape of loving the Prophet very much. As a rule, anything that exceeds its limits, becomes the exact opposite. When love exceeds the limits, it becomes hatred. Our love of the Prophet has exceeded the limits, until it turned into real hatred in the form of love. This is of course what Satan did to the Christians; they love Jesus so much that he disowns them on the Day of Judgment (5:117) and the Gospel of Mathews 7:21-23).
One of the most flagrant examples of our excessive love of the Prophet …. which turned into direct disobedience …. can be illustrated by studying Verse 285 of Sura 2.
Before I cite this verse, I wish to remind the reader that these words came out of the Prophet’s mouth.
"The messenger believes in what was sent down to him from his Lord, and so do the believers. All of them believe in GOD, and His angels, and His scriptures, and His messengers; ‘We do not
make any distinction among His messengers,’ and they say , ‘We hear and we obey. Forgive us, our Lord. To You is our ultimate return.’"
Is this what the Muslims say or do today?
Do the Muslims obey this powerful injunction that "We shall not make any distinction among God’s messengers" and that "We hear and we obey"?
Do the Muslims obey God and His messenger?

AN INVITATION TO ALL MUSLIMS:
OBEY GOD AND THE PROPHET

(Continued from the February Issue)

The object of worship is God ALONE. The Muslims, however, have been preoccupied with their idolization of the Prophet in much the same way as the Christians’ preoccupation with Jesus. The only difference being that the Muslims are not aware of their idolatry.
In the process of exalting and idolizing a dead, powerless, and totally unaware human being (see 39:30), the Muslims have disobeyed the Prophet, and forgot the only one who created them, the only one who is eternally in control, the only one who provides for them, the only one who terminates their life, the only one who will resurrect them, the only one who will call them to account, and the only one who will place them in Heaven or Hell.

The function of every messenger has been defined in Qur’an as delivering the message LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH (there is no god except God) (see 21:25). Now, let us put things in perspective. Our Creator informs us that Qur’an is the only utterance by Muhammad to be upheld as THE ONLY SOURCE OF RELIGIOUS TEACHING (Quran 6:19 and 69:38-47). This is affirmed by the strongest oath in Qur’an:
“I swear by everything you see, and everything you do not see. (this certainly covers everything in the universe). This is the utterance of an honorable messenger. It is not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe. Nor is it the utterance of a soothsayer, rarely do you take heed. A revelation from the Lord of the universe. And, if he (Muhammad) ever uttered any other religious teachings, we would have punished him severely, and we would have cut the revelation to him. None of you could have protected him against us.” (Qur’an 69:38-47).

Now that we see that Qur’an is decreed by God, through the Prophet’s mouth, as THE ONLY RELIGIOUS TEACHINGS UTTERED BY MUHAMMAD, let us examine the Muslims’ daily disobedience of the Prophet.
The wise and fortunate Muslim will readily give up his inherited customs and religious ideas in favor of God’s commandments that came out of the Prophet’s mouth. The unfortunate ones, on the other hand, would stubbornly adhere to what they found their parents and scholars doing:

“When told, ‘You shall follow these revelations of God,’ they say, ‘No, we only follow what we found our parents doing” (Quran 31:21)

“Their inevitable destiny is Hell. That is because they found their parents astray, and they readily followed in their footsteps.” (Quran 37:68-70)

Here is a list of daily transgressions by the average Muslim against God and the Prophet:

(1) EXALTING THE PROPHET AGAINST HIS WILL

Verse 285 of Sura 2 states: “The messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and so did the believers. All of them believe in God, His angels, His scriptures, and His messengers, saying, “We make no distinction among His messengers.’ And they say, ‘We hear and we obey. Forgive us, our Lord, to You is
the final destiny.’”

It is of course deliberate, and extremely significant that the statement “WE HEAR AND WE OBEY” comes immediately after the statement “WE MAKE NO DISTINCTION AMONG HIS MESSENGERS.” For it is a glaring fact of life in the Muslim World that the Muslims have defiantly declared “WE HEAR, BUT WE DISOBEY.” It is a fact of life in the Muslim World that the Muslims commit gross distinctions among God’s messengers by exalting Muhammad over and above all the rest. They bestow extravagant attention on the Prophet Muhammad, while neglecting all other messengers of God. Certainly, if Moses were alive today, and he walked the streets of Cairo, Tehran, or Karachi, he will never hear any Muslim declare: “ASH-HADU ALLA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH, WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOSES RASOOLUL-LAH.” The same would be observed by the Prophet Jesus, or Jonah, or Saleh, or Lot, or Solomon, or any other messenger.

This blatant disobedience of the commandments that came out of the Prophet Muhammad’s mouth is so deeply engrained that the average Muslim is now literally unable to say “LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH (there is no god except God) by itself, without adding the name of Muhammad somehow. Moreover, they readily flunk the Qur’anic criterion that distinguishes true Muslims from false Muslims:
“When God ALONE is advocated, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned besides God, they become happy.” (Quran 39:45)
