Torture within Quranist Viewpoint (13): On the Quranic Warning and Preaching to Avoid Torment

 

Published in October 12, 2017

Translated by: Ahmed Fathy

Introduction:

1- The Quran is the Divine, Celestial Book of guidance to make people move out of darkness of falsehoods and injustices to the Light of the Truth and justice/charity, so that their fate will be Paradise for eternity instead of Hell forever. God created human beings as free agents who choose either guidance, knowledge, and piety or misguidance, ignorance, or sins. This is the test of life, based on free choice.

2- Human beings see the reward/result of their deeds in this world before the next; the pious ones see the goodness in this life and in the Hereafter: "And it will be said to those who maintained piety, "What has your Lord revealed?" They will say, "Goodness." To those who do good in this world is goodness, and the Home of the Hereafter is even better. How wonderful is the residence of the pious ones." (16:30); "Those who emigrate for God's sake after being persecuted, We will settle them in a good place in this world; but the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew. Those who endure patiently, and in their Lord they put their trust." (16:41-42); " Say, "O My servants who have believed, keep your duty to your Lord. For those who do good in this world, is goodness. And God's earth is vast. The steadfast will be paid their wages in full, without limits."" (39:10). In contrast, the criminals/sinners will be tormented temporarily in this world and in the next (in Hell for eternity) in case they do not repent and atone for their bad deeds, injustices, and sins before they die.

3- In order to urge people to avoid torment in this world and the next, there are many various types of warning and preaching in the Quran. In fact, most people are heedless and never care for this Quranic warning. For instance, the Muhammadans are being tormented in this world now, as we see in today's media about the news of their being destroyed in wars and as we read about the man-inflicted calamities of them in books of the Middle-Ages history and modern history. The Muhammadans are polytheists who will enter into Hell for eternity in case of non-repentance and never becoming monotheists. It is stranger still that the Muhammadans claim falsely that they believe in the Quran, as they are the worst type of misguided people; in fact, they are both criminals and victims at the same time.    

4- We demonstrate below the Quranic ways of preaching and warning to make people avoid torment.

 

Firstly: warning and preaching by the end of Quranic stories about the ancient nations:

1- Most Quranic stories about the previous prophets and their peoples/tribes come in verses revealed in Mecca. Within the earliest verses revealed in Yathreb, God says in the Quran: "We have sent down to you clarifying verses, and examples of those who passed on before you, and advice for the pious ones." (24:34). This is a reminder of the fact that Quranic stories are lessons to be drawn and learned only by the pious, God-fearing ones.

2- Many Quranic chapters that were revealed in Mecca mention stories of other prophets and their peoples/tribes; among them is the Quranic Chapter 11, and after mentioning these stories God provides this comment: "These are of the reports of the towns-We relate them to you. Some are still standing, and some have withered away.We did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves. Their gods, whom they invoked besides God, availed them nothing when the command of your Lord arrived. In fact, they added only to their ruin.Such is the grip of your Lord when He seizes the towns in the midst of their sins. His grip is most painful, most severe. In that is a sign for whoever fears the punishment of the Hereafter. That is a Day for which humanity will be gathered together-that is a Day to be witnessed." (11:100-103). The term (sign) here is used to stand for warning and preaching for people to take heed and draw useful lessons. By the end of the Quranic Chapter 11, God reminds people that Quranic stories are a warning for them and a reminder: "Everything We narrate to you of the history of the messengers is to strengthen your heart therewith. The Truth has come to you in this, and a lesson, and a reminder for the believers." (11:120). The Quranic Chapter 26 mentions some Quranic stories about prophets and their peoples/tribes, and each story ends in the repeated phrase: (Surely in this is a sign...). The location of the ruins of the people of the prophet Saleh is made a sign for others to heed and draw useful lessons: "So note the outcome of their planning; We destroyed them and their people, altogether. Here are their homes, in ruins, on account of their iniquities. Surely in this is a sign for people who know." (27:51-52). Moses' Pharaoh is the master/leader for all tyrants coming after him in all eras whose tyranny led them to the sin of self-deification. God says in the Quran about Pharaoh: "So God seized him with an exemplary punishment, in the last and in the first. In this is a lesson for whoever fears." (79:25-26). Yet, no one among the tyrants in the Middle East take heed and fear the Lord God!

3- Since the Abbasid Era onwards, homosexuality has spread among the Muhammadans and it has become a religious ritual for Sufis in the Mameluke Era, as per the detail in our book titled "The Influence of Sufism on Immorality and Decadence of the Mameluke Era in Egypt". Homosexuality is still practiced in secret by many Wahabis in particular in our modern era; they are addicted to homosexual debaucheries and yet they pretend to be pious and good! The homosexual debaucheries spread later on among the Turks and the Mongols from the Arabs/Muhammadans and then from them to the West since at least the 19th century. The West now discuss homosexuality openly; in contrast, the Muhammadans deny the existence of homosexuals among their societies inside their countries despite the spread of homosexual debaucheries secretly everywhere. This is why God repeats the story of Lot and his homosexual people many times in the Quran: to warn many times against this sin that will spread in eras after the Quran was revealed. This is a miraculous prediction that such a sin will spread the more among the polytheistic Muhammadans. The Quranic story of Lot and his people focus more on the sin of homosexuality more than their taking other deities/gods beside Allah. The Quranic narrative of the smiting and destruction of the people of Lot involves a warning (and a threat) addressed to Muhammadans who read the Quran and never take heed: "And when Our command came about, We turned it upside down, and We rained down on it stones of baked clay.Marked from your Lord, and never far from the unjust ones." (11:82-83). This warning is addressing the Muhammadans now; it has been fulfilled now as many Arab cities are destroyed! God says the following about the ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah: "And We left behind a clear sign of it, for people who understand." (29:35); "And We left in it a sign for those who fear the painful torment." (51:37). Yet, the Muhammadans never take heed and never fear the Lord God!       

4- Warning and preaching in the Quran are directly linked to each other; e.g., in this direct address to all human beings after the narration of some Quranic stories of the ancient nations: "Do the people of the towns feel secure that Our might will not come upon them by night, while they sleep? Do the people of the towns feel secure that Our might will not come upon them by day, while they play? Do they feel safe from God's plan? None feel safe from God's plan except the losing people. Is it not guidance for those who inherit the land after its inhabitants, that if We willed, We could strike them for their sins? And seal up their hearts, so that they would not hear?" (7:97-100). Indeed, each verse in 7:97-100 entails a separate article to ponder it deeply, but we briefly assert here that disbelievers/polytheists are tormented in this world by ongoing wars against one another with most advanced tools and weapons of every era (or rather every decade), as the Muhammadans never pay heed to the Quran at all; they never ponder the following warning: "Do those who scheme evils feel secure that God will not cause the earth to cave in with them, or that the torment will not come upon them from where they do not perceive? Or that He will not seize them during their activities? And they will not be able to prevent it. Or that He will not seize them while in dread?..." (16:45-47); "We destroyed generations before you when they did wrong. Their messengers came to them with clear signs, but they would not believe. Thus We requite the sinful people. Then We made you successors on earth after them, to see how you would behave." (10:13-14).

5- The bad typical habit of most human beings is that they repent when they face fearful ordeals/calamities and life-threatening situations, but once they survive, they return to disobedience, as if they were spared God's torment or can escape or run away from the Dominant Lord. God warns them in the Quran as follows: "When harm afflicts you at sea, those you pray to vanish, except for Him. But when He saves you to land, you turn away. The human being is ever disbelieving. Are you confident that He will not cause a track of land to cave in beneath you, or unleash a tornado against you, and then you find no protector? Or are you confident that He will not return you to it once again, and unleash a hurricane against you, and drown you for your disbelief? Then you will find no helper against Us." (17:67-69).

6- Warning and preaching in the Quran are also linked to the vital importance of the presence of preachers and callers for reform; they are like safety valves indeed. Were the ancient people obedient to the reformers/prophets, they would not have been destroyed by God: "If only there were, among the generations before you, people with wisdom, who spoke against corruption on earth-except for the few whom We saved. But the wrongdoers pursued the luxuries they were indulged in, and thus became guilty. Your Lord would never destroy the towns wrongfully, while their inhabitants are reformers." (11:116-117).

7- Thus, reform has been the mission of all God's prophets/messengers; e.g., (1) Shueib: "...I desire nothing but reform, as far as I can..." (11:88); (2) Hood: "I convey to you the messages of my Lord, and I am a trustworthy adviser to you." (7:68), and (3) Saleh: "...I have delivered to you the message of my Lord, and I have advised you, but you do not like those who give advice." (7:79). Hence, preachers of reform in all eras follow the footsteps of prophets/messengers. Towns/villages (i.e., countries/states) are destroyed as per the Quranic rule when the reformers and callers for justice are rejected, incarcerated, persecuted, and/or murdered by the affluent, unjust ones. Muhammadans have committed these crimes against preachers of justice, reform, and Truth. God says in the Quran: "When We decide to destroy a town, We command its affluent ones, they transgress in it, so the word becomes justified against it, and We destroy it completely." (17:16). 

 

Secondly: the Quranic command to roam the Earth to take heed of what had occurred to ancient nations:

1- In contrast to the man-made, fabricated, earthly Sunnite religion, God commands people in the Quran to roam the earth to apply empiricism and scientific research to get to know God's creation and to take heed of the ruins of ancient people to avoid being smitten and tormented like them: "Have they not seen how God originates the creation, and then reproduces it? This is easy for God. Say, "Roam the earth, and observe how He originated the creation." Then God will bring about the next existence. God has power over all things."" (29:19-20). The West people have done greatest discoveries within the continents, oceans, and outer space as well as inside cells and nucleuses. In contrast, the Muhammadans who discarded the Quran still worship, sanctify, and deify myths of their ancestors.

2- The Quran repeats in different ways the command to roam the earth, as we explain within the two points below.

2/1: Within the direct command or directive: "Many societies have passed away before you. So travel through the earth and note the fate of the deniers." (3:137); "Say, "Roam the earth, and observe the fate of those who came before. Most of them were polytheists."" (30:42).

2/2: Within using the present tense in a question that invokes condemnation of those who do not obey this command: "Have they not travelled through the earth, and seen the consequences for those before them? They were stronger than them, and they left more impact on earth. But God seized them for their sins, and they had no defender against God. That is because their messengers used to come to them with clear proofs, but they disbelieved, so God seized them. He is Strong, Severe in retribution." (40:21-22); "Have they not journeyed through the land, and seen the outcome for those before them? They were more numerous than they, and had greater power and influence in the land. But what they had achieved availed them nothing." (40:82); "Have they not travelled the earth and seen how those before them ended up? They were more powerful than them, and they cultivated the land and developed it more than they developed it, and their messengers came to them with clear signs. God would never wrong them, but they used to wrong themselves." (30:9).

3- God narrates in the Quran stories about the ancient nations that existed before Arabs and how these ancient ones had great civilizations and advancement, but they were smitten and annihilated by go because of grave injustices by the affluent classes that controlled everything: "Have they not journeyed through the earth, and had minds to reason with, or ears to listen with? It is not the eyes that go blind, but it is the hearts, within the chests, that go blind." (22:46). This applies now to the countries of the Muhammadans.  

4- The West people excel in excavations, explorations, and discoveries of ruins and monuments, while the Muhammadans who were commanded to do so never paid attention nor took heed: "How many generations before them, who were more powerful than they, did We destroy? They explored the lands-was there any escape?" (50:36).

5- Sodom and Gomorrah are located in the middle of the region called now the Middle-East, and Qorayish caravans of trade in the Levant passed by the ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah, as we know from the Quran: "You pass by them in the morning. And at night. Do you not understand? " (37:137-138). God wants people to take heed by such ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah: "Surely in that are lessons for those who read signs. And it is on an existing road. Surely in that is a sign for the believers." (15:75-77). Yet. no Muhammadans make journeys there to take heed and draw useful lessons; in fact, Sunnite hadiths prevent them from ever going there! In fact, the affluent ones among the Muhammadans prefer to visit Thailand instead! They roam the earth in search for illicit carnal pleasures in brothels and night spots to practice all sorts of debaucheries within a promiscuous lifestyle. It is strange that many practicing homosexuals among the Muhammadans read the Quranic verses about the torment inflicted by God on the people f Lot and they never take heed or warned at all! We bring them 'glad' tidings of Hell wherein they will dwell for eternity if they never repent before they die.    

 

Lastly:

1- These are signs by God for all the pious believers; God's Quranic verses increase the guidance of the guided ones who are convinced with Quranic warning and preaching and therefore live in piety and in the fear of the Lord God. As for the ones who have chosen misguidance, they will mock and ridicule the ideas in this article and its author. But eventually, this ridicule will backfire on them on the Last Day: "So the evils of their deeds assailed them, and what they used to ridicule engulfed them." (16:34); "There will appear to them the evils of their deeds, and they will be surrounded by what they used to ridicule." (39:48); "The evils of what they did will become evident to them, and the very thing they ridiculed will haunt them." (45:33).

2- The Muhammadans never heed these Quranic verses; they are liars as they claim ostentatiously to believe in the Quran, but in fact, there is a thick veil/barrier between their hearts and the Quran because they have abandoned it. prophet Muhammad will say on the Last Day these words: "..."My Lord, my people have abandoned this Quran."" (25:30). 

3- The proof of all of the above points is that they are combined by the end of the Quranic Chapter 12, within a discourse that applies to the Muhammadans in particular. We urge readers to ponder deeply on the following verses: "How many a sign in the heavens and the earth do they pass by, paying no attention to them?And most of them do not believe in God unless they associate others with Him. Do they feel secure that a covering of God's torment will not come upon them, or that the Hour will not come upon them suddenly, while they are unaware? Say, "This is my way; I invite to God, based on clear knowledge-I and whoever follows me. Glory be to God; and I am not of the polytheists." We did not send before you except men, whom We inspired, from the people of the towns. Have they not roamed the earth and seen the consequences for those before them? The Home of the Hereafter is better for those who are righteous. Do you not understand? Until, when the messengers have despaired, and thought that they were rejected, Our help came to them. We save whomever We will, and Our severity is not averted from the criminals. In their stories is a lesson for those who possess intelligence. This is not a fabricated tale, but a confirmation of what came before it, and a detailed explanation of all things, and guidance, and mercy for people who believe." (12:105-111). As always, God says nothing but the Absolute Truth.
