About The Verse 13:41

Published in March 8, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I am still a novice who explores your website these days; I'm ready, heart and soul, to embrace Quranism as the Only True Islam  … I'd like to share this pondering with you; I tend to think that this verse: "...God judges; and nothing can hold back His judgment..." (13:41) negates and refutes the myths of intercession cherished by Sunnites, Shiites, and Sufis; thus, no disbelievers/sinners who will enter into Hell, as per God's Judgment, will ever be brought out of it at all … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Of course, you are perfectly right; these verses about the Last Day assert your pondering: "The decree from Me will not be changed, and I am not unjust to the servants." On the Day when We will say to Hell, "Are you full?" And it will say, "Are there any more?" And Paradise will be brought closer to the pious ones, not far away." (50:29-31). For more details, we would like you to read our book (in English) titled "Intercession between Islam and the Muhammadans", found on this link: (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=119).

About The Verse 17:73

Published in March 8, 2018

 

 

Question: …  Dear Sir,… God has said the following to Prophet Muhammad: "They almost lured you away from what We have revealed to you, so that you would invent something else in Our name. In that case, they would have taken you for an intimate friend." (17:73); does this verse mean that we must not love Muhammad so as not to deify him along with God? Sunnites have hadiths about entering into Paradise if one loves Muhammad more than anyone and anything else in the world; I tend to think their hadiths are refuted by the verse 17:73 …  What do you think? … Thank you …  

Answer:

 Of course, all hadiths are wrong without any exceptions. One can love, esteem, and respect Muhammad but without deifying him; one must love, sanctify, and deify only the Almighty Lord God. As for the verse 17:73, it tackles how the Qorayish disbelievers tried hard to tempt Muhammad to change the Quranic text; if he had succumbed to their temptations, they would have treated him as an intimate friend and God would have punished him severely: "They almost lured you away from what We have revealed to you, so that you would invent something else in Our name. In that case, they would have taken you for an intimate friend. Had We not given you stability, you might have inclined towards them a little. Then We would have made you taste double in life, and double at death; then you would have found for yourself no helper against Us." (17:73-75).

About Shiite Hadiths

Published in March 9, 2018

 

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … I tend to think that these group of Shiite hadiths agree with the Quran and Qurnaism:............ … What do you think? Why are you still attacking the Shiite doctrine, then? The Shiites never attacked your Quranist ideas as much as Sunnites do, as you know … Thank you …

Answer:

 We, as well as all Quranists on earth, disbelieve in all hadiths/discourses/narratives outside the Quran. The only text in which we believe is the Quran: God's Word. Hence, all hadiths of Sunnites, Shiites, and Sufis are never part of Islam; rather, they are part of earthly, man-made, fabricated religions of Satan that contain notions which are never authorized by the Lord God. Therefore, it is of minor importance if, by mere chance, there would be few hadiths that might apparently agree with some Quranic verses; if such agreement indeed exists, why would we need such redundant hadiths in the first place?! They are quite useless, then. We categorically refuse to believe in the myth called Isnad (i.e., series of 'trusted' narrators) that ascribe words to Muhammad which he never uttered. Of course, when we refute Shiite mythical notions within our writings, we use the same criteria we adopt when we refute Sunnite and Sufi mythical notions; we criticize the religions of the Muhammadans and urge all of the Muhammadans (who assume as if they were 'Muslims') to return to real Islam (i.e., Quranism), as we fear for them lest they should lose their Eternal Life in the Hereafter. Finally, there is no room for making compromises in calling people to the religion of Abraham (i.e., Islam = Quranic monotheism) and advising them to return to the Quran which they have abandoned.

God Is the Greatest

Published in March 9, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Within the phrase Allahu Akbar (or God is the Greatest) by which we begin our five daily prayers, is the word "Akbar" one of the Holy Names/Epithets of the Lord God? … It is not mentioned in the Quran, as you know … Thank you …    

Answer:

 This phrase describes God and used in prayers so that those who perform prayers remind themselves of the Omnipresence of the Lord and concentrate during prayers as much as they can and never think of anything or anyone else besides God during performing prayers.

Repeated Questions!

Published in March 11, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … (1) If all hadiths are false and never uttered by Muhammad as you claim, what proof could you cite from the Quran to support this view?! Those companions who conveyed the hadiths conveyed the Quran to believers of later generations, right?! … (2) Is there a difference between literal and figurative styles in the Quranic verses concerning the topics of .......? … (3) How come that within the so-called biographies of Muhammad, he is portrayed as a man obsessed with sex?! … (4) I'm on the verge of converting to atheism! Could you please prove to me that the author of the Quran is God or the Creator of the universe?! Doubts turn my life into veritable hell! … (5) How come that Muslim women can marry atheist, peaceful men, though Sunnite clergymen consider such marriages as corrupt/annulled contracts or even as a form of fornication, and the resulting kids are deemed as ones born out of wedlock?! What is the type of marriage contract that could be really deemed as valid or Islamic?! … Thank you …      

Answer:

 These repeated questions are sent to us by different Arab persons via email; we respond to all of them here: please read first our archive of writings and watch our YouTube videos to find answers to your queries that have been answered so many times; most novices are too lazy to read in our website, though they are supposed to be eager seekers of the Truth. Their minds are still immersed in Sunnite polytheistic notions; what a pity! Most of them are yet unable to envision the belief in the Quran without any other discourses/hadiths and the belief in God without mortal deities (saints, companions, etc.) alongside with Him. God protects and preserves the Quranic text and this mission is NOT given to any mortals; we never believe in any biographies of Muhammad; we never believe in even a single hadith; he never uttered any of them and we have proven this by the Quran in many books and articles of ours; see 69:44-47, 7:185, 45:6, and 77:50. It is silly to use Sunnite notions and views to refute Quranism. By the way, one is to ponder deeply on the Quran and to think deeply while reading our archive of books and articles to discover that Quranism is the Only True Islam, and one is to bear in mind that no one saves anyone; one is to seek salvation (i.e., to avoid Hell and to enter into Paradise) by good deeds, piety, and Quranist monotheistic belief. We urge those who have sent these questions to stop claiming they are ready to learn since they are too reluctant to read and they desire only a takeaway, ready-made answers! As for those who are about to turn into atheists, we never care about those who deny God and the Hereafter; if they would enter into Hell or would save themselves through Quranism to enter into Paradise, this up to them and as per their own choice; this is their own individual responsibility and this is none of our concern; we will not be happy/sad if others do (not) choose Quranism as their faith. We, Dr. A. S. Mansour, are concerned only about saving ourselves and pleasing the Lord God to attain His mercy and be made to enter into Paradise. We are not entitled to repeat our answers to repeated queries; we would appreciate it if novices read and search our website first to find the answers to their queries instead of wasting our time. After newcomers would read our entire archive and think it over, they are to decide for themselves if they would embrace Quranism or not. As for those who are on the verge of converting to atheism, we remind them of the inevitability of death and resurrection; no mortals can escape God and His Judgment. It is up to you to decide to make your eternal life inside Hell or inside Paradise, as per your deeds and belief. All people are free to choose. We care only to defend Islam and to show True Islam (i.e., Quranism) to the whole world in our website to gratify the Lord; we are sure that He will reward our person in the Hereafter after He bestows His mercy and pardon on us and on all monotheists. From now on, we will not provide answers to repeated questions in the fatwas section, since answers are found in our writings. Thank you.

Fasting during Exams

Published in March 11, 2018

 

  

Question: … Dear Sir, … High-school exams this year will take place during Ramadan; I'm afraid lest I should flunk the exams because I cannot concentrate without eating; some of my Sunnite friends assume that I'd eat anyway through all days of Ramadan and then fast for 30 days for each lost day of Ramadan! This is Sunnite nonsense, I know. Yet, can I fast the 30 days of Ramadan I'm gonna miss after the end of the exams period? I'm not ill or physically weak, by the way. Is it sinful to decide not to fast, then?! … What do you think? Any advice? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 You can eat during the days of the exams, and later on, you must fast for an equal number of days you intentionally miss.

About the Verse 24:33

Published in March 11, 2018

 

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, … Could you explain to me the phrase (if they desire to remain chaste) in the Quranic verse 24:33? … Thank you …         

Answer:

 God says in the Quran: "And let those who do not find the means to marry abstain, until God enriches them from His bounty. If any of your servants wish to be freed, grant them their wish, if you recognize some good in them. And give them of God's wealth which he has given you. And do not compel your girls to prostitution, seeking the materials of this life, if they desire to remain chaste. Should anyone compel them - after their compulsion, God is Forgiving and Merciful." (24:33). This means that female slaves in Arabia at the time were sometimes forced to work as sex workers (i.e., to engage indiscriminate fornication in return for money); many of such oppressed female slaves desired to adhere to chastity but they were afraid of being tortured or killed by their masters who bought and controlled them; God forgives those oppressed, forced ones and accepts their repentance and they are not to be flogged at all; God punishes only those who committed sins out of their own free will. God is the Omniscient Lord Who knows who were forced victims and who were fornicating as per their own choice.

About Magic

Published in March 14, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … My female friend's husband cheated on her; she thinks that a magic spell was cast on him to hate her and have a sexual relation with another woman who assumes she will be able to make him take her one day as a second wife … When I told her that there is nothing called magic, witchcraft, or sorcery, as such notions are mere myths, she refused to believe me! What is the Quranist point of view about magic? … Thank you …   

Answer:

 Magic is mere imagination/deceit that influences the minds and senses of those who believe in such nonsense; we refer you to these links of our two subtitled-into-English episodes of our YouTube show titled "Quranic Moments" about this topic of magic: PART I (Episode No. 266: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LuCG0qrSfs) & PART II (Episode No. 267: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R9mO0ueaYk).

About The Verse 17:78

Published in March 14, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … God says in the Quran: "Perform the prayer at the decline of the sun, until the darkness of the night; and the Quran at dawn. The Quran at dawn is witnessed." (17:78) … Who witness our reading the Quran at dawn? Any ideas? …Thank you …   

Answer:

 The Paradise dwellers will be of two ranks/degrees as per the Quranic Chapter 56; i.e., (1) the Forerunners and (2) those on the Right. The difference between both ranks/degrees is that the Forerunners have performed more good deeds which are better in terms of quantity and quality in comparison with those on the Right; if you desire to be among the Forerunners, you must perform more good deeds; e.g., more voluntary acts of worship, extra prayers at night, donation of more zakat/alms money to the poor and the needy, more fasting, more remembrance and glorifying of the Lord God, and more reading of the Quran; you should implore God for pardon and forgiveness more often than not, while avoiding grave sins. When you perform extra prayers at night until dawn. After performing the dawn prayers, you should read some Quranic Chapters; the angels who write one's deeds are the witnesses of this act of worship, and indeed, they record all our good and bad deeds. These verses are addressed to Muhammad and to all believers in all eras: "Perform the prayer at the decline of the sun, until the darkness of the night; and the Quran at dawn. The Quran at dawn is witnessed. And keep vigil with it during parts of the night, as an extra prayer. Perhaps your Lord will raise you to a laudable position." (17:78-79)

Being Forced to Become a Head of a Sufi Order!

Published in March 14,2018

 

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … After my father died recently, I have inherited, in spite of myself, the post of the head of the Sufi order that he headed; my family members have inherited such Sufi order, along with its mosque and mausoleum, since many decades before I was born; the sheikhs/clergymen of this Sufi order receive a lot of ill-gotten money from the gullible masses who believe in the miracles of the mausoleum, the order, and its head who was my late father and now me! The naïve masses at our village assume that my late father was a saint; they used to kneel and prostrate to him and donate lots of money inside the boxes scattered around the mausoleum venerated and worshiped by them! Thus, my family members are wealthy and have high stature; I myself have never been a real Sufi at all; I know that my father was an inveterate liar and a hypocrite; he performed no miracles and could never 'bless' or bring benediction to anyone at all; he never performed prayers except before the eyes of people within the Friday congregational prayers or when visitors came to our house at the times of prayers; when alone, my father never performed prayers at all; he was happy that people spread lies/myths about his 'miracles' and how 'saintly' he looked! Thus, he grew very rich! I felt that such lies indicate that this wealth consists of nothing but ill-gotten money. I've noticed since my adolescence that my father was a corrupt person; he cheated on my mother several times and she quarreled with him so often because he had sex with several women! When my mother died before my father, our house was filled with female servants who desired to serve the saint/sheikh of the Sufi order (i.e., my father) for free, and I know for sure that he had sex regularly with such servants! Several years after I failed to obtain the high-school degree as I flunked my exams several times, I was courageous enough to question my father about his sexual life, ill-gotten money, and the reason behind his never performing any prayers when alone inside the house. To my shock, he nonchalantly told me that all Sufi saints like him are exempted from religious duties and from applying Quranic commands and that their sins are absolved however sinfully they'd act all their lives! I never believed such a lie. My father assumed he'd avoid Hell and Judgment by virtue of the intercession of the male 'saints' who are actually his late family members! This is impossible, and, of course, this myth goes against the divine justice in the Quran; God will not favor some people over the others; besides, all human beings will be judged on the Last Day. I felt thoroughly shocked and disgusted, and I followed a Salafist/Sunnite mosque, while assuming that I might find 'true' Islam instead of Sufi myths that fill me with the desire to vomit! Yet, I felt more disgusted by Salafist/Wahabi notions of misogyny, fanaticism, hatred, violence, and extremism; I've discovered that both Sufism and the Sunnite Wahabi religion are never part of Islam when I have come across your great Quranism website; I know now that Quranism is the Only True Islam; I am now a Quranist Muslim and a big fan of all your books, especially the ones about debunking the Sufi myths. My favorite book of your collection is the one titled "The Quran: Sufficient as a Source of Islamic Legislation" (found in English on this link: http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=92); indeed, this book is a turning point in my religious life … Here's my big problem: the sheikhs and clergymen of the Sufi order, who confiscate most of the ill-gotten money, have appointed me as the head-sheikh of the Sufi order weeks ago after the death of my father; they spread rumors about my 'miracles' and how a blessed saint/sheikh I am! When I told one of such high-rank members of the Sufi order, who was my father's confidant, that I desire never to consume such ill-gotten money anymore and that I intend to resign from this post so as not to deceive the masses with Sufi polytheism, he felt afraid and told me that other sheikhs and high-rank members of the order will kill me if I dare to quit! This man told me that they will protect their lucrative business (i.e., the order and its mausoleum and gullible disciples) at any cost! In fact, he told me they might kill me at once if they'd know my intentions, and they'd build a mausoleum over my corpse to gain more money if I dared to expose their polytheism in my village! This man told me that I will find no job since I have no degrees and I will lose my only source of income if I quit, and thus, I will be rendered chased, homeless, hungry, and penniless! Finally, he told me that it is not the fault of my family that the naïve villagers desire to worship living and dead persons while having the greatest hopes of attaining 'salvation', 'benediction', and 'deliverance' … I desire only to gratify the Lord God. What am I to do?! Any advice?! … Thank you …      

Answer:

  Rest assured, our son, that God has decided beforehand the time/place of one's death and one's earnings; this is part of predestined fate. No one can save you when your time comes to die and no worldly power can murder you prematurely if you are destined to live for a certain duration and your death-time has not come yet. God will provide you with your livelihood/earnings without the interference of others; no one can give you anything never destined to be yours. God's imposed fate include calamities/adversity and prosperity/earnings. We advise you to leave at once, secretly, your Satan-dominated Sufi village of evil men; move immediately to another distant city/village or even to another country if possible in order to begin a new life of faith and monotheism without ill-gotten money. Trust the Lord God and rely on Him; the Almighty Lord God never wastes the good deeds of monotheistic believers who adhere to the Quran.

About Death

Published in March 16, 2018

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … How come that the Quran tells us that those who are killed while striving for the cause of God are living in a certain type of Paradise, whereas all human beings will feel upon Resurrection that they have slept for a day or part of a day, as per the Quran? … The Quran does not contain contradictory verses, right? … Thank you …        

Answer:

 We refer you to  the ten episodes (from No. to 122 No. 142) about the topic of death within our subtitled-into-English YouTube show titled "Quranic Moments" (this is the link of Episode No. 122: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsDdN8pf27I). For further details that will provide answers to your question, we also refer you to our book titled "The Book of Death", which is found (in English) on the following link: (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=120). We briefly assert to you here the following facts: those who are killed while striving for the cause of God are not dead; we are commanded in the Quran to believe that their being alive in a state of bliss (i.e., within a Barsakh-level Paradise) until the Last Day. They will be resurrected, gathered, and judged like the rest of humanity on the Last Day. In contrast, the Quran tells us that the drowned people of Noah and the drowned Moses' Pharaoh and his people are alive in a state of Barsakh torment until the Last Day, when they will enter into Hell after being judged. Both those in bliss and those in torment within Barsakh levels feel the passage of time and they are NOT in a state of timelessness like the rest of the souls of the dead (and the souls of those who are yet to be born) within another Barsakh level.

Comets in the Quran

Published in March 16, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What does the term "comet(s)" refer to in the Quranic text? Is it used figuratively or literally to refer to comets we know about in the outer space? … This term is mentioned in these verses:  15:18, 37:10, and 72:9 … Thank you …

Answer:

 The physical world is the universe that the humankind is discovering now: the earth, planets, stars, and galaxies. The several Barsakh levels of metaphysical world is overlapping with our physical world; within such Barsakh levels, ethereal creatures exist: angels, Jinn, and devils, and each has several types; angels have different missions such as recording our deeds. There is a Barsakh-level Paradise for the souls of those who were killed while striving for the cause of the Lord God; there is a Barsakh-level torment for the people of Noah who drowned in the flood/deluge and for Moses' Pharaoh and his people who drowned in the Red Sea while chasing the Israelites during the exodus. There is a Barsakh location that store the souls of the dead and the souls of those who are yet to be born. There is a Barsakh level for souls of sleeping persons; their souls return to their bodies upon waking up. More details about this are found in our book (in English) titled "The Book of Death". As for the comets, there are certain Barsakh levels which will never be entered by devils and Jinn who exist in Barsakh levels that overlap with the physical world of earth; they are chased NOT by comets that we see in the outer space, but by Barsakh missiles which we can never imagine, see, feel, or study; comets in the verses you mention are used figuratively and not in the literal sense of the comets seen and studied by scientists of astronomy.

Divorce in Yemen

Published in March 18, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I'm sure that bad social habits of divorce that exist in my country, Yemen, have nothing to do with Islam; such habits humiliate divorced women very much; these divorced women suffer grave injustices by their ex-husbands, such as......... This is against justice, which is the supreme value in the Quran … What do you think? Have you written anything about divorce in the Quran? …Thank you …    

Answer:

  Such habits that humiliate, wrong, and abuse women physically and emotionally are part of pre-Islamic patriarchal, misogynist culture of Arabia that has nothing to do with the Quran; Arabs, in fact, have  disregarded for centuries the Quranic sharia laws that introduce reform regarding marriage/divorce and inheritance. We refer you to our article that was actually a paper delivered in a speech by our person at one of the forums of the Ibn Khaldoun Center in Cairo, Egypt, in the 1990s, and it stirred much controversy, as it refutes the Sunnite sharia laws of Satan regarding divorce. This article (in English) is titled "Contradictions in Divorce Legislations between The Quran and The Sunnite Jurisprudence", found on this link: (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=15977).

There Is Nothing Called Zakat of Rikaz

 

Published in March 18, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Before my elder brother died, he took great interest in excavating and digging for ancient artifacts in Arabia … In fact, he found a golden statuette and sold it; he died before receiving the first payment of the price for it; installments of the price are now received by myself and my brothers, who are his only inheritors; yet, what about Zakat of Rikaz (i.e., ore)? This money is legally ours and our late brother's as he worked hard to dig in the right places and faced many challenges until he sold it in return for a very good price, right? How zakat is to be calculated for such money? … Thank you …

Answer:

 We refer you to this article of ours (in English) about the so-called Rikaz: (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=13989). There is no such thing in Islam called Zakat of Rikaz (i.e., ore); this is a false Sunnite notion. The resources found on the surface of the earth, and inside its crust, are created by God for the welfare of all human beings who dig and search for it: "He placed stabilizers over it; and blessed it; and planned its provisions in four days, equally to the seekers." (41:10). What one finds inside the earth is his/hers; one is to pay zakat/alms in general once one receives any type of income. You can receive the money paid for this statuette as you and your brothers are the only inheritors of your late brother; you should pay any debts of your late brother before distributing such money. Each inheritor is to pay zakat individually as per his financial ability and as per what he can afford, the minimum that we personally suggest is 10% of any sums; zakat money should go to the needy, the hungry, the ill, and/or those penniless who cannot afford paying the education expenses of their children; besides, one can pay zakat (for instance, 5% of the income) for the God's sake and serving His cause of preaching Quranist monotheism, and NOT for harmful mosques of the polytheists who are controlled by the religion of Satan, if you know what we mean.

About the Right of Relatives

Published in March 19, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … How the right of relatives can be calculated? I mean that how can I apply these verses now: "...Say, "I ask of you no wage for it, except affection among the near of kin."..." (42:23); "And know that whatever spoils you gain, to God belongs its fifth, and to the Messenger, and the relatives,..." (8:41)? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 About the rights of the near of kin and the relatives, we refer you to the passage titled (Fourthly: ...) within this article (in English) titled "Quranic Terminology: Near", found on this link on our website in the English section: (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=17840).

Caring for Wives

Published in March 19, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What does this Quranic phrase mean: "...and they have received from you a solid commitment." (4:21)? … Thank you … 

Answer:

  This is God's description of the marriage contract; a husband is committing himself to care for his wife and he will be questioned about this responsibility by God on the Day of Judgment. This is made very clear when you read the context of the verses preceding and following the verse 4:21.

The Number of the Sects of the Muhammadans

Published in September 6, 2013

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I admire your writings very much … Could you inform me of the exact number of the sects of Muslims; I mean the sects of those whom you call in your writings as the Muhammadans … Some authors assert that there are over 90 sects now! Is this true? … Thank you …    

Answer:

 It is too difficult for our person to enumerate the sects that have branched, past and present, from the Sunnite, Shiite, and Sufi religions of the Muhammadans as well as from the two hybrid religions of Shiite Sufism and Sunnite Sufism. Even the main four branches/sects/doctrines of the Sunnite religion has several sub-sects, but the most violent, terrorist one is the Hanbali Wahabi sect, which caused the emergence of many opposition trends inside and outside the KSA as a reaction. Shiite sects are also too many to enumerate, and some trends/sects died out and some linger until now in Iran, in the Gulf monarchies, and some Arab countries.

English Translations of the Quran

Published in April 6, 2007

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Having read several English translations of the Quranic text, as an Arab man, I tend to think that all of them are faulty and they distort, warp, and twist the meaning of several Quranic verses to incorporate horrid Shiite or Sunnite/Wahabi notions … Could you have any suggestions to solve this big problem?! … Thank you …  

Answer:

 Of course, no language can render fully the layers of meanings inside the Quranic text and its unique Arabic tongue. Of course, most of the translators of the Quran into English or into any other languages have their own known agenda of asserting Sunnite/Wahabi or Shiite notions. This is why some translations are deemed as good ones by some but as bad ones by others. In fact, any translations will certainly overlook things/items/elements of the original text. This is expected to some degree; besides, translations of the meanings of the Quranic verses will never escape the interpretation made by the translators as per their backgrounds, religious affiliations, culture, education, preferences, linguistic abilities, etc. You must bear in mind this Italian expression: (traduttore, traditore) which roughly means that any translator is a traitor by necessity or that translations will necessarily betray any original texts somehow, as no multilingual translators or polyglots can fully render any original text as a whole by respecting or conveying all its linguistic/semantic levels, sounds or onomatopoeia, diction, lexical significations, allusions, cultural background, etc. We hope one day that a Quranist translator would emerge and offer an English translation of the Quran that will be directly related to our trend of Quranism and would be as literal as possible to reflect the unique Quranic terminology.

Are Extremists Victims or Evildoers?

Published in August 23, 2007

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I cannot decide whether the existence of Wahabi Sunnite extremists and fanatics inside Egypt is a mere reaction to the tyranny of the Mubarak regime or not; are they victims oppressed and persecuted by the regime or not? Are they evildoers paid by the Saudis or non-Egyptian Wahabis to destroy Egypt by establishing a hateful, more tyrannical theocracy? … What are the conditions that result in the emergence of extremists/fanatics? What do you think? … Thank you …        

Answer:

 Those secular thinkers assume that extremism and fanaticism leading to the emergence of Wahabi terrorists in Egypt would come to an end when problems like economic crises, corruption, persecution, unemployment, marginalization of the youth, housing, low standard of living, overpopulation, etc. would be solved. We beg to differ; the Wahabi terrorist groups like the MB and Salafists are agents paid by the KSA so as to reach power one day to establish the horrid Wahabi theocracy. Besides, these Wahabi agents are of two types. (1) A civil wing of 'thinkers'/authors/journalists continues to preach and call for a utopia of 'Islam' (the banner/flag to hide their vicious, devilish Wahab theocracy or caliphate) that might replace the Mubarak regime and establish some sort of a paradise on earth. This is opium fed to the gullible masses of the uneducated classes. (2) A military wing of militias or armed groups of terrorists loyal to the MB and Salafists who perform their terrorist operations inside Egypt to terrorize the Orthodox Copts and other citizens to intimidate the Mubarak regime into allowing the political Wahabis to enter into the Egyptian political scene, the parliament, media, etc. Both wings preach to the masses that democracy and secularism are akin to disbelief and that a restoration of the so-called caliphate is imperative since the failure of communism/socialism and since capitalism has made rendered many nations miserable and oppressed. This means that if the terrorist MB members would reach power in Egypt one day, they will massacre those who oppose their theocracy while deeming such victims as enemies of Allah! In short, to answer your question, we maintain that the emergence of Wahabi extremists and fanatics is NOT a reaction to the oppression of the Mubarak regime that persecute and imprison them: these Wahabis are NOT victims; they are funded by the Saudi regime which is funding Sunnite extremists worldwide annually by trillions of US$, as Wahabism posing as 'Islam' al over the globe helps to maintain the existence of the KSA as a Wahabi theocracy that claims to monopolize the name of Islam; this is why the KSA lavishes money on the Vatican-like 1000-year-old Al-Azhar institution in Cairo in order to control it and to control the Mubarak regime. Of course, the civil wing of Wahabis  brainwash the Egyptian society with books of Sunnite mythology (hadiths, fatwas, and fiqh) and spread fanaticism and extremism among frustrated youths within sermons delivered inside millions of mosques all over Egypt; this is why Wahabis are keen to maintain corruption, poverty, and other despicable conditions caused by the Mubarak regime; i.e., in order to recruit more youths to join the terrorist MB and Salafist groups who submit to the KSA and its Wahabi theocracy. Wahabi Sunnite theocrats with sham/fake piety will be worse than the criminal Mubarak regime; they will engage into massacring, looting, etc. while brandishing the name of Islam to cover their corruption and crimes and silence any opposition figures among secular people. The name of Islam must NEVER be used and manipulated in politics at all; this is a grave sin, an insult to the Lord God and His Word, and a blasphemy against the Lord God. Islam (which is only the Quran) needs those who clear its name of Wahabi extremists and their crimes; real monotheists must cooperate with us via www.ahl-alquran.com and our VA-based IQC to show (from within the Quranic verses) what real Islam is and how it is really the religion of peace, justice, freedom, and other higher values.
