Introduction:

 We have received this question via email; we quote it here followed by our reply: (... What is the meaning of God's referring to "values" in the term "valuable" used in this Quranic verse: "They were commanded only to worship God, devoting their faith to Him alone, and to practice regular prayer, and to give alms. That is the Valuable Religion." (98:5)? ... Thank you ...).

OUR REPLY:

Firstly: Islam is the valuable religion of higher values within our contemporary culture:

1- Islam (i.e., Quranism) is the religion of dignity for all people and of the elevation of human beings to a better level of moral standards; they learn from it all higher values; e.g., human dignity, justice, freedom, mercy, peace, and charity. Hence, the Quranic term "the Valuable Religion" mentioned in the verse 98:5 indicates the human dignity of being servants/slaves only to Our Creator the Almighty Lord God and never to any human creatures at all. Hence, real dignity is to worship only God and to submit only to Him; thus, this verse applies to real monotheistic believers: "...But glory belongs to God, and His messenger, and the believers; but the hypocrites do not know." (63:8). In contrast, those disbelieving polytheists who worship things/items and mortals are humiliated because they discard the dignity accorded to them by the Lord God so that they degrade and debase themselves as if they were animals: "We have honored the Children of Adam, and carried them on land and sea, and provided them with good things, and greatly favored them over many of those We created." (17:70); these verses apply to polytheists: "Have you seen him who chose his desire as his god? Would you be a watcher over him? Or do you assume that most of them hear or understand? They are just like cattle, but even more errant in their way." (25:43-44). Sadly, most human beings worship tier desires/whims as per their free will and as per choice; they are controlled by sinful, polytheistic desires/whims; this applies to most of the Muhammadans, of course, and this verse applies to them: "We have destined for Hell multitudes of jinn and humans. They have hearts with which they do not understand. They have eyes with which they do not see. They have ears with which they do not hear. These are like cattle. In fact, they are further astray. These are the heedless." (7:179).

2- Almighty God says the following in the Quran: "Is he who walks while drooping his own back better guided, or he who walks upright on a Straight Path?" (67:22). Islam (literally, submission to God within monotheism) is God's religion that has come within all celestial messages/scriptures of the Lord God conveyed by His messengers/prophets; this message of monotheism is the Straight Path, as one's heart is directed and devoted only to God, and upright, peaceful behavior with people within piety. This piety means that one's lifetime is one-way route/path of adhering to uprightness, performing good deeds, following the Quranic higher values of peace, justice, etc., and this route/path will lead straight to Paradise. In contrast, disbelieving polytheists deify things/items and mortals; e.g., earthly human and non-human creatures and mausoleums made of earth/soil and dust typically trodden by our feet and contain dust and bones of the dead and entombed deified human beings or the so-called saints. This means that during their lifetimes, the polytheists follow a crooked path while being bent and drooping, as if they were about to fall headlong on their faces. Thus, Islam (i.e., Quranism) elevates the nature, stature, and feelings of Quran-believing people, whereas earthly, man-made, fabricated religions debase, insult, and humiliate those who adhere to them.       

Secondly: Islam is the Valuable Religion as per the Quran:

1- Islam is the Valuable Religion; this means that the monotheism of (There is no God but Allah) is the instinct inherent inside human beings and the conscience wired inside their souls, before the souls are clothed in human flesh to be born, but most people follow the polytheism of their forefathers, as per these verses: "And when Your Lord summoned the descendants of Adam, and made them testify about themselves. "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we testify." Thus you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection, "We were unaware of this." Nor can you Say, "Our ancestors practiced idolatry before; and we are their descendants who came after them; will you destroy us for what the falsifiers did?"" (7:172-173). Hence, innocent children are born with such instinct/conscience of monotheism; yet, most of them would be influence by the social milieus of polytheism and misguidance. Yet, once one suffers severe calamity or adversity, the inherent instinct of monotheism wired inside one's soul is revived as one would implore and supplicate to God for help. Sadly, once the ordeal or adversity is over, most people return to their former polytheism; this wretched state of affairs that occur to most human beings, who stick to polytheism once more after adhering briefly and momentarily to monotheism during calamities, is exemplified in many Quranic verses. This instinct/conscience of monotheistic faith is described in the Quran as the Valuable Religion; God has commanded Muhammad (and consequently all Quran-believing people) to adhere to this monotheistic instinct: "So devote yourself to the religion of monotheism - the natural instinct God has instilled in the humankind. There is no altering God's creation. This is the True Religion, but most people do not know." (30:30). Thus, the real tragedy is that most people (especially the Muhammadans) deny and reject this monotheistic instinct, and this is manifested in their behavior and their earthly, man-made religions and creeds. This means that they forget all about death, the Hour, Resurrection, the Last Day, the Judgment, Hell, and Paradise of the Hereafter. God says the following to Muhammad and to all Quran-believing people as well: "So devote yourself to the Valuable Religion, before there comes from God a Day that cannot be averted. On that Day, they will be shocked. Whoever disbelieves, upon him falls his disbelief. And whoever acts righteously-they are preparing for themselves." (30:43-44).

2- Thus, Islam is the Valuable Religion, and this means that we must adhere to the monotheistic religion of Abraham, whose belief was to dedicate his faith only and exclusively to the One and Dominant Lord God; in fact, God has commanded Muhammad to announce this real Islam to everyone: "Say, "My Lord has guided me to the Straight the Valuable Religion, the creed of Abraham the monotheist, who was not a polytheist." Say, "My prayer and my worship, and my life and my death, are dedicated to God, the Lord of the Worlds. No partners has He. Thus I am commanded, and I am the first of those who submit." (6:161-163).

3- Joseph adhered to this monotheistic religion of Abraham and preaching it during his ministry as a prophet, even inside prison: ""O my fellow inmates, are diverse gods better, or Allah, the One, Dominant Lord?" "You do not worship, besides Him, except names you have named, you and your ancestors, for which God has sent down no authority. Judgment belongs to none but God. He has commanded that you worship none but Him. This is the Valuable Religion, but most people do not know." (12:39-40).

4- This Valuable Religion is the one conveyed within scriptures given by God to messengers/prophets in order to guide people; the People of the Book are commanded in these scriptures of the Lord God to dedicate their worship and devote their faith to Him in piety and monotheism: "They were commanded only to worship God, devoting their faith to Him alone, and to practice regular prayer, and to give alms. That is the Valuable Religion." (98:5). 

5- As per the verse 98:5, the Valuable religion of monotheism includes to dedicate one's acts of worship and one's entire faith/religion only to God; in fact, God has made Muhammad declare these facts and adhere to them, and this is consequently addressed to all Quran-believing people in all eras as well: "We sent down to you the Book with the Truth, so worship God, devoting your entire religion to Him. To God dedicated religion is due..." (39:2-3); "Say, "I was commanded to worship God, devoting my religion exclusively to Him. And I was commanded to be the first of those who submit." Say, "I fear, if I disobeyed my Lord, the torment of a horrendous Day." Say, "It is God I worship, dedicating my sincere religion to Him."" (39:11-14). 

6- According to the above points, one is deemed as a polytheist/disbeliever if one's heart/soul contains the dedication of even 1% of deification/sanctification to any mortals or any creatures while dedicating 99% of deification/sanctification to God. Of course, polytheism annuls and nullifies all good deeds; and God has warned Muhammad and all prophets/messengers against polytheism and made them warn their contemporaries: "It was revealed to you, and to those before you, that if you fall into polytheism, your works will be in vain, and you will be of the losers." (39:65-66).

7- The Quran is the Book that descended to convey this call to monotheism and dedication one's faith and religion exclusively to the Dominant Lord God; this is why the Quran is the Valuable Book: "Praise be to God, who revealed the Book to His servant, and allowed in it no distortion. Valuable..." (18:1-2); these verses are about Muhammad who recited the Quranic Chapters written in parchments: "A messenger from God reciting purified scripts. In them are valuable writings." (98:2-3). 

Thirdly:the vile, lowly, man-made religions of the Muhammadans:

1- The grave sin of the Muhammadans is that they reject God's Word, the Quran; i.e., Valuable Book with the Clear Evidence of the Valuable Religion of monotheism and of dedicating one's faith and acts of worship only to the Almighty Creator of the universe. The Muhammadans deify and sanctify hundreds of books of the Sunnite, Shiite, and Sufi religions and they worship a false, imaginary deity whom they have called (Muhammad) along with many deities of the their pantheon: companions, imams, clergymen, authors, saints/allies, etc., and this means that they never deify God as their hearts/souls are controlled by, and filled with, the deification of such mortal gods, mausoleums, and books of polytheism.  

2- On the Last Day, these mortal deities/gods will disown their worshipers: "On the Day when We will gather them altogether, then say to those who ascribed partners, "To your place, you and your partners." Then We will separate between them, and their partners will say, "It was not us you were worshiping." "God is sufficient witness between us and you. We were unaware of your worshiping us." There, every soul will experience what it had done previously; and they will be returned to God, their True Lord; and what they used to invent will fail them." (10:28-30); "And when the polytheists see their partners, they will say, "Our Lord, these are our associates whom we used to invoke besides You." They will strike back at them with the saying, "Surely you are liars." On that Day they will offer their submission to God, and what they had invented will abandon them." (16:86-87).

3- Thus, God has revealed the Quran to elevate those people who believe in it to be the best community on earth; yet, because of their earthly, man-made, fabricated religions of Satan (i.e., they contain nothing but devilish revelations) and their rejection of the Quran, the Muhammadans are the worst, most evil community on earth now, and other nations/communities on earth feel shocked by the backwardness and obscurantism of the Muhammadans. Thus, these verses apply quite perfectly to the Muhammadans now: "And relate to them the story of him to whom We delivered Our Verses, but he detached himself from them, so Satan went after him, and he became one of the misleading ones. Had We willed, We could have elevated him through them; but he clung to the ground, and followed his desires. His metaphor is that of a dog: if you chase it, it pants; and if you leave it alone, it pants. Such is the metaphor of the people who deny Our Verses. So tell the tale, so that they may ponder. Evil is the metaphor of the people who reject Our Verses and wrong themselves." (7:175-177).

4- The Muhammadans expose themselves the mockery, ridicule, and contempt of the whole world within the media and within cyberspace in our modern era of global village and telecommunications. For instance, videos on the internet show to the whole world such scandals: (1) the laughter-inducing Sufi dancing festivals of madness, screaming, and disrespect, (2) the gruesome and gory annual feast of Shiites wounding themselves for the sake of a murdered deity who knows nothing at all about his assumed godhead and whose soul in Barsakh is unaware of his worshipers, (3) silly, ridiculous, and nonsensical sermons delivered by Shiite and Sunnite imams/preachers, and (4) shocking news of heinous crimes of terrorism committed by Sunnite Wahabi terrorists worldwide.    

Lastly:

1- There is a huge gap, or rather an abyss, between the Valuable Religion of Islam and its Quranic higher values on the one hand, and the Muhammadans, on the other hand, who adhere to their vile, lowly, man-made religions of devilish revelations.

2- The hardly pardonable sin/error is that the Muhammadans ascribe themselves and their vile, lowly, man-made religions to the name of Islam.

3- Hence, within our writings, we are engaged into peaceful, intellectual jihad to clear the name of Islam, as we strive to show how great the religion of Islam (i.e., Quranism) is and how God's Valuable Religion has nothing to do with the vile fabrications, lies, and falsehoods of the Muhammadans within their man-made religions of Satan.
