The Holy Quran and the Destruction of the Al-Saud Family:

The Al-Saud Family and Their Repelling Others Away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque

Introduction:

1- In our previous writings, we have proved how that Islam in terms of behavior is peace and that any peaceful individuals are Muslims regardless of their faith or beliefs. Islam in terms of one's heart/mind and beliefs is monotheism: to submit to God in piety and to devote religion and all acts of worship to Him. This monotheistic faith (or lack of it) is judged only by God on the Last Day, and never by mortals in this life. People have the right to judge outward, ostensible behavior as either peaceful or violent; laws preserve human rights against infringement or violation.     

2- In contrast, disbelief and polytheism are synonymous terms in the Quranic text, in terms of beliefs by taking gods alongside with Allah and in terms of aggressive behavior that include religious persecution and aggressive wars waged falsely in the name of God. 

3- Having said the above, we tackle in this article the religious crime of the Al-Saud family that repel people away from God's Path (i.e., the Quran) and away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque in Mecca.

 

Firstly:

1- On planet Earth, God has established a Sacred House for Himself as a locational sanctuary for people to worship Him within a temporal sanctuary of the four sacred months of pilgrimage: "God has appointed the Kaaba, the Sacred House, a sanctuary for the people, and the Sacred Month, and the offerings, and the garlanded..." (5:97); "The number of months, according to God, is twelve months-in the decree of God-since the Day He created the heavens and the earth, of which four are sacred. This is the correct religion. So do not wrong yourselves during them..." (9:36). Arab disbelievers before the advent of Islam (i.e., before the revelation of the Quran) distorted the chronological order of these sacred four months by postponing or delaying some days of them to serve their purposes, a sign of utter disbelief: "Postponement is an increase in disbelief - by which those who disbelieve are led astray. They allow it one year, and forbid it another year, in order to conform to the number made sacred by God, thus permitting what God has forbidden. The evil of their deeds seems good to them. God does not guide the disbelieving people." (9:37). The immoral sinful caliphs Abou Bakr, Omar, and Othman committed a heinous crime that show they rejected Islam (i.e., they disbelieved in the Quran); this crimes is called the Arab conquests, within which they committed aggression against peaceful nations that never attacked and fought Arabs in Arabia. This heinous crime was committed falsely in the name of Islam during the four sacred months of pilgrimage, in which no fighting of any type is allowed. This is why the Muhammadans of today have forgotten all about the four sacred months and that they must adhere to peace during them. We infer from the first verses of the Quranic Chapter Nine that these four sacred months I the lunar calendar are Zu Al-Hijja, Muharram, Saffar, and Rabei Awwal.      

2- God commands the duty of pilgrimage to the Sacred House in Mecca anytime within these four sacred months, while purifying one's heart during pilgrimage, as the desire to commit any injustices there is a sacrilege and a grave sin penalized by God: "The Hajj is during specific months. Whoever decides to perform the Hajj - there shall be no sexual relations, nor misconduct, nor quarrelling during the Hajj. And whatever good you do, God knows it. And take provisions, but the best provision is righteousness. And be mindful of Me, O people of understanding." (2:197); "As for those who disbelieve and repel from God's Path and from the Sacred Mosque - which We have designated for all humankind equally, whether residing therein or passing through - and seek to commit injustices and sacrilege therein - We will make him taste of a painful torment." (22:25).  

3- Piety during pilgrimage (or Ihram) within hearts of pilgrims means that their hearts become sanctuaries; yet, the Muhammadans in their false rituals have turned Ihram into revealing clothes for men that show private parts of their bodies. In the past centuries, Bedouins of Arabia used to attack caravans of pilgrims; this led caliphates in Baghdad and Cairo to send military guards to accompany the caravans and to confine pilgrimage only to the first ten days of Zu Al-Hijja; they disregarded the fact that pilgrimage can be performed within the four sacred months. This is not the only sacrilege and insult to God's sharia laws regarding pilgrimage.

4- God has made the Sacred Mosque in Mecca as a sanctuary and place of security to all people coming from everywhere on the planet Earth: "And We made the House a focal point for the people, and a sanctuary..." (2:125); "...Whoever enters it attains security. Pilgrimage to the House is a duty to God for all who can make the journey. But as for those who refuse-God is Independent of the worlds." (3:97). Since most human beings in all eras are misguiding polytheists [even if Muhammad himself would have obeyed them, they would have mislead him: "If you were to obey most of those on Earth, they would divert you from God's Path. They follow nothing but assumptions, and they only conjecture." (6:116)], we cannot judge beliefs in their hearts to stop them from entering into the Sacred Mosque in Mecca; the only criterion to allow them entry there is the overt adherence to peace and to non-violence. This is the same criterion used when the Qorayish tribe stopped its aggressive fighting and entered into peace; peace is God's religion: "When there comes God's victory and triumph. And you see the people entering God's religion in multitudes." (110:1-2). In these verses addressing Muhammad, we infer that fighters stopped their aggression and embraced peace; Muhammad never knew their hearts to make sure they believed in the Quran or not; he even did not know who the hypocrites around him in Yathreb were: "Among the Desert-Arabs around you there are some hypocrites, and among the inhabitants of Medina too. They have become adamant in hypocrisy. You do not know them, but We know them. We will punish them twice; then they will be returned to a severe torment." (9:101). Thus, the Quranic Chapter 110 tackles the fact that Muhammad witnessed Arabs entering in groups into peace (i.e., Islam in terms of behavior) and performed pilgrimage in peace and within non-violence, and NOT as per Islam in terms of faith inside hearts.    

5- This means that the Sacred Mosque in Mecca should be open to all peaceful people (of any religious affiliation or denomination) without discrimination, so that they feel safe and get to know each other within this peaceful haven. Those who are impure and to be prevented from entering into Mecca are the aggressive polytheistic attackers; God has said the following to believers after the defeat of the aggressive Qorayish: "O you who believe! The polytheists are polluted, so let them not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year of theirs. And if you fear poverty, God will enrich you from His grace, if He wills. God is Aware and Wise." (9:28).

6- Within honoring and revering the Sacred House, security and safety are ordained by God to be enjoyed by pilgrims (and sacrificial animals with them) in their way to Mecca and when they are inside Mecca; hating attackers and violent people who repel people away from God's Kaaba in is not even an excuse to fight them in this sacred location. "O you who believe! Do not violate God's sacraments, nor the Sacred Month, nor the offerings, nor the garlanded, nor those heading for the Sacred House seeking blessings from their Lord and approval. When you have left the pilgrim sanctity, you may hunt. And let not the hatred of people who barred you from the Sacred Mosque incite you to aggression. And cooperate with one another in virtuous conduct and conscience, and do not cooperate with one another in sin and hostility. And fear God. God is severe in punishment." (5:2). 

7- Violence and sacrilege within pilgrimage were committed by desert-Arabs raids on caravans of pilgrims and the Qarmatians ho massacred pilgrims inside Mecca itself (we are currently writing  book on these historical events in relation to violation and desecration of the pilgrimage during the Middle-Ages). In fact, such violence and sacrilege started by the Qorayish tribe before, during, and after Muhammad's lifetime have been continued for centuries by desert-Arabs, and then committed by the Saudis now in the modern era.    

 

Secondly: the Qorayish tribe and repelling people away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque:

1- Before taking Muhammad as an enemy, the Qorayish tribe lived in prosperity and made lots of profits by controlling pilgrimage and caring for pilgrims and the Kaaba, while other tribes used to fight one another; when Muhammad preached the Quran to them, they rejected the Quranic guidance (which is God's bounty to human beings) to preserve their profits: "Is it this discourse that you take so lightly? And you make your livelihood by deny it?" (56:81-82); "And they say, "If we follow the guidance with you, we will be snatched from our land." Did We not establish for them a Safe Sanctuary, to which are brought all kinds of fruits, as provision from Ourselves? But most of them do not know." (28:57); "Do they not see that We established a Secure Sanctuary, while all around them the people are being carried away? Do they believe in falsehood, and reject the bounty of God?" (29:67); "Let them worship the Lord of this House. Who has fed them against hunger, and has secured them against fear." (106:3-4).

2- The aggression of Qorayish went to an extreme of driving Muhammad and the believers out of Mecca and to attack them when they settled in Yathreb, while stopping them from performing pilgrimage: "Yet why should God not punish them, when they are turning others away from the Sacred Mosque, although they are not its allies? Its rightful allies are the pious; but most of them do not know." (8:34); "It is they who disbelieved, and barred you from the Sacred Mosque, and prevented the offering from reaching its destination..." (48:25). 

 

Thirdly: the KSA follows the steps of Qorayish in repelling people away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque:

1- When the sinful caliph Omar drove the People of the Book out of Arabia by force and prevented them from ever entering into Mecca to perform pilgrimage, the People of the Book decided to forget all about pilgrimage, though this is a main feature of the religion of Abraham. The false idea spread for centuries that pilgrimage is confined only to 'Muslims' or who we call as the Muhammadans; they also perform pilgrimage to a Satanist mausoleum in the Yathreb mosque ascribed falsely to Muhammad. Omar, a caliph of the Qorayish tribe, is the one who started such crime of repelling people away from the Sacred House in Mecca when he prevented the People of the Book from ever entering into Mecca; caliphs after him imitated his transgression; this is applied now by the Saudi family in our modern era, especially when its Wahabism is the most extremist form of the Sunnite religion of bloodshed, massacres, fanaticism, and terrorism that repels people away from God's Path: the Quran.    

2- Using the present tense in the verse 22:25, God predicts in the Quran that the crime of repelling people away from the Quran and from the Sacred Mosque will go on in all eras by disbelievers. This means that after the Qorayish tribe, disbelievers of another type (i.e., the Al-Saud family now) will control the Sacred House which is ordained by God to be for all people of the world. "As for those who disbelieve and repel from God's Path and from the Sacred Mosque - which We have designated for all humankind equally, whether residing therein or passing through - and seek to commit injustices and sacrilege therein - We will make him taste of a painful torment." (22:25).    

3- In the verse 22:25,  God declares that those who repel others from God's Path and from the Sacred Mosque as disbelievers in terms of aggressive behavior and compulsion in religion and in terms of polytheism within beliefs inside their hearts as they persecute those who do not follow their polytheistic ways. This crime is committed now in our modern eras by the Saudi royal family members.

4- The Qorayish tribe used to brag of its serving pilgrims and pilgrimage despite this tribe's disbelief and repelling people away from God's Path and the sacred Mosque; this applies to the Saudi king and his Saudi family members now: "It is not for the polytheists to attend God's places of worship while professing their disbelief. These-their works are in vain, and in the Fire they will abide. The only people to attend God's places of worship are those who believe in God and the Last Day, and pray regularly, and practice regular charity, and fear none but God. These are most likely to be guided.Do you consider giving water to pilgrims and maintaining the Sacred Mosque the same as believing in God and the Last Day and striving in God's path? They are not equal in God's sight. God does not guide the unjust people." (9:17-19).  

 

Fourthly: a historical overview:

1- The first Saudi state conquered Mecca without fighting by terrorizing its dwellers by first massacring all dwellers of Al-Ta'if city in 1802, and dwellers of Mecca were so frightened that they surrendered and handed over the city to the army of the Al-Saud family. The Wahabi historian Ibn Bishr in his book titled (The Glorious History of Najd) never mentions except few words about the massacre of the dwellers of Al-Ta'if but mentions details of spoils and how the Saudi armies defeated princes ruling many regions and how the prince of Al-Hejaz region, where mecca is situated, surrendered without fighting. Dwellers of Al-Ta'if (men, women, children, and the old people) surrendered without fighting at all, and yet, all of them were massacred by the Saudi fighters to terrorize the dwellers of Mecca by news of such massacres to force them to surrender. 

2- This conquest of Al-Hejaz region drove the Ottoman caliph to enlist the help of the governor of Egypt at the time, Muhammad Ali Pacha, to send the Egyptian army to crush this burgeoning Saudi state, and after many battles, the Egyptian army defeated the Al-Saud army and destroyed the capital, Al-Dariyya, and its prince was captured and sent to Turkey where he was put to death by beheading. 

3- Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud and his Najd Brothers in Sept. 1924 repeated the same crime of massacring all the dwellers of Al-Ta'if (men, women, children, and the old people)after sieging the city for some time, and terrifying news of all atrocities committed there spread all over Arabia and drove dwellers to Mecca to surrender without fighting and Abdul-Aziz and his Najd Brothers entered Mecca, without shooting a bullet, in Oct. 1924. When newspapers in Egypt, Syria, and Iran wrote about Al-Ta'if massacre, Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud sent telegrams signed by his son Feisal to condemn publishing such news; yet, he seized the chance to get rid of the savage Najd Brothers (he defeated them with the help of GB) after they had fought for him to establish his kingdom. Their savagery included sabotage, massacring all people, looting, and putting all captured ones to death at once, and foreign reporters and observers mentioned all these atrocities when the Najd Brothers attacked Kuwait in 1920 and Jordan in 1924. 

 

Fifthly: the Saudi family now and repelling people away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque and manipulating pilgrimage for political reasons:

1- The Saudi royal family members are disbelievers not only in terms of their raising banners of Islam when they commit aggressions and invade other countries, but also in terms of practicing compulsion in religion and religious persecution as they repel people away from the Quran and from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca.  

2- The Saudi royal family members will never allow the People of the Book to enter Mecca to perform pilgrimage; moreover, they question thoroughly within a sort of inquisition (and for no reason whatsoever) those foreigners who converted to Islam and come to Mecca to perform pilgrimage. 

3- The Saudi royal family members use their controlling Mecca and pilgrimage to serve their political purposes; for instance, they prevented Egyptians, Iraqis, and the Levantines from entering into Mecca during the first Saudi kingdom, and they prevented their foes and enemies among the Muhammadans from entering Mecca in the 20th and the 21st centuries within the third, current Saudi kingdom. Thus, they manipulate pilgrimage for political reasons. They prevented many Egyptians from entering into Mecca within the era of the Egyptian president Nasser, who was hated by the Saudi kings. It happened that they prevented Iranian pilgrims from entering into Mecca for the period (1987-1990) and at one time, the Saudi security forces massacred 400 Iranian pilgrims in the 1980s.     

4- In recent years, the Saudi royal family members have prevented Yemenis, Qataris, and Shiites of Lebanon and Syria for several consecutive pilgrimage seasons.

5- When Saudi royal family members have decided to siege Qatar since the 5th of June, 2017, they prevented the Qataris from entering into Mecca and the UK-based Arab Human Rights Organization asserted that the Saudi authorities refused to be pressurized to make the Qatari pilgrims enter into Mecca and this crossing of all red lines have brought into question the fact that Mecca should not be controlled by one government, family, or ruler. Such preventing  others from entering Mecca shows that the Saudi royal family members have no respect to the Quranic/Islamic sharia laws of pilgrimage nor to the International Law. The Saud authorities actually create obstacles to prevent certain nationalities and groups from ever entering into Mecca.     

6- In contrast, news came in the British Bloomberg network that Israel tries to convince the Saudi kingdom to allow air flights to transport Muslim pilgrims from Israel, as per recommendations of the American president Donald Trump who advised the Saudis to hold close relations with Israel; in fact, Trump criticized that no diplomatic relations and no airlines exist between Israel and the Saudi kingdom, and he urged both countries to get closer in order to cooperate in facing Iran.  

 

Lastly:

  Because of the sin/crime of repelling people away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque, the caliphs Omar and Othman were assassinated and the so-called companions engaged into the first major civil war until the caliph Ali was assassinated. Because of the sin/crime of repelling people away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque, the very first Saudi state was destroyed. Because of the sin/crime of repelling people away from the Sacred Kaaba Mosque and away from God's Path (i.e., the Quran), the third current Saudi state, a.k.a. the KSA, will face imminent collapse and downfall in case no real reforms on many levels are introduced in order to avoid bloodbaths and total destruction!
