Distracting Narratives/Hadiths

Published in December 2, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I hope you like this article of satire in which I ridicule the so-called hadiths: A man said that a woman said that a man said that his wife said that a sage said that his ancestors said that those who color boiled eggs after the sunset prayers shall never be forgiven in the Hereafter, whereas those who color them after the dawn prayers shall join the inheritors of the earth; many narrators differ regarding the number of eggs to be colored; some say 5 and some say 7 or 3; another erudite sage assumed that they are not less than 8 or 10 eggs; saints of later days asserted that the number should increase without limits if one desires to be among the meek ones in Heaven; yet, the erudite scholar in his exegeses and commentaries on hadiths assumed that the exact opposite is true; one is not to be a spendthrift: 4 eggs are more than enough. ......Yet, on Easter, a believer should color 5 eggs in red, 5 in green, and 5 in blue, because roses are red, sky is blue, and green stands for fertility, especially for those deep in knowledge of hadiths and fiqh who must multiply and beget so many children to fill the earth; all men and women within a large series of narrators asserted that this hadith is great and is filled with symbols known only by the chosen few who fainted once they understood it; the Holy Al-Bokhary himself liked to consume several eggs on a daily basis; he urged his followers to color eggs for breakfast to ward off tedium of having to consume those damned eggs everyday … Another series of narrators asserted that eggs colored in red will make the one who colored them avoid entering into red-hot hell, whereas those colored in red and yellow will make them distanced two miles and whole nine yards away from hell, as per volume no. 789, part 56, page 877 of hadiths collected, edited, and authored by the grandmaster and scholar....... Yet, those who despise the holy eggs shall never be redeemed as per the doctrines of......, unless they atone for their sins by taking in and adopting as many hens and chicks as possible, as per the Wahabi sheikh...... who is promised of 3 paradises as per the dream he saw while in deep slumber after stuffing his belly with a 9-course meal   … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Your sense of sarcasm and satire is great; may the Lord God bless you, our son; what you have written does not differ much from the distracting narratives/tales or hadiths of Sunnite, Shiites, and Sufis; you imitate their style perfectly; in fact, we have read within their books of balderdash funnier, more laughter-inducing nonsense; their silly, ludicrous hadiths must be ridiculed by all Quranists.

About the Quranic Verse 10:87

Published in December 3, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I've enjoyed your great, thought-provoking book titled "The Falsehood of Al-Aqsa Mosque of Jerusalem" (found in English on this link:        http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=115); you are indeed the greatest Egyptian thinker I know … I wonder why you haven't mentioned in your great book this Quranic verse which shows clearly that the first Qibla (i.e., direction of prayers) for monotheists during the era of Moses was in Egypt: "And We inspired Moses and his brother, "Settle your people in Egypt, and make your homes as Qibla places of worship, and perform the prayer, and give good news to the believers."" (10:87) … What do you think? … Thank you …  

Answer:

 Thank you, our son; we would like you to read our two other books, in English, titled "The Israelites in Pharaonic Egypt within a Quranist Vision" (found on this link:    http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=118), and "Torment and Torture within a Quranist Vision" (found on this link:     http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=136). We think that you are mistaken in your understanding of the Quranic verse 10:87; our view (and we might be wrong) that 10:87 is not about Mount Al-Tur in Sinai; rather, it is about Israelites performing prayers inside their homes away from spies/agents of the tyrannical Pharaoh. Indeed, this verse reminds us of the times when we (and other Quranists) avoided mosques in Cairo, Egypt, and prayed inside our houses within fear of being spotted by spies/agents of the tyrannical Mubarak and the men of his regime.

Each Nation Has Its Messengers

Published in December 3, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "O children of Adam! When messengers from among you come to you, relating to you My Verses - whoever practices piety and reforms - upon them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." (7:35); "Every nation/community has a messenger. When their messenger has come, judgment will be passed between them with fairness, and they will not be wronged." (10:47). Some writers quote these verses to 'prove' that other messengers will emerge or have already emerged after the death of Muhammad; how their erroneous view would be refuted? What do you think? … Thank you …

Answer:

 Muhammad is the last messenger/prophet of the Lord God; the Messenger after the death of Muhammad is the Message: the Quran itself; this means there is no divine revelation coming after the Quran; yet, the devilish revelations of Satan go on until the end of days. For more information, we refer you to our book, in English, titled "The Quran: Sufficient as a Source of Islamic Legislation", found on this link:       http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=92

To Pray in Loud or Low Voices

Published in December 3, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Would you tell me from the Quran if one should perform prayers in a loud or a low voice? Sunnite hadiths & fiqh books offer contradictory views on that topic, as you know … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Sunnite books of tradition (fiqh, hadiths, etc.) have destroyed the Quranic legislations about prayers; we have exposed, debunked, and undermined Sunnite myths about prayers in our book on prayers and our subtitled-into-English YouTube videos about prayers. This Quranic verse provides the answer to your question: "...And be neither loud in your prayer, nor too low in it, but follow a course in between." (17:100). Make sure that you observe piety, reverence, and fear of the Lord God during prayers and that you observe piety in your behavior all day long as a result of observing and performing the daily prayers.

Lottery Prizes

Published in December 4, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Is money won through lottery as a prize legal in Islam or illegal/ill-gotten? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 Of course, they are legal; such lotteries and contests are based on mutual consent within rules and laws agreed on by everyone and applied on all people.

Hadiths by the Lord God?!

Published in December 4, 2018

 

  

Question: … Dear Sir, … I never believe in hadiths ascribed to the Lord God; He has spoken to humanity only through the Quran; but I'd like you to give me a general idea about such hadiths and its fabricators/inventors; when did they emerge? Why do the Sunnite clergymen of today rarely quote them? What do you think? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 Of course, the Only Discourse of the Lord God until the end of days is the Quran; those who believe in other discourses ascribed to God, or attributed to Muhammad, besides the Quran are cursed polytheists/disbelievers. In most cases, hadiths fabricators have ascribed their narratives/tales to Muhammad in the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.H. onwards; this coincided with the domination of the notion of deification of Muhammad as a god above Allah. When Sufism emerged in the 3rd century A.H., the cursed, polytheistic Sufi authors typically assumed they saw God in dreams/visions and ascribed hadiths to Him! This way, they would not have to invent/fabricate series of narration (i.e., Isnad); they ascribed hadiths directly to God or to Muhammad as if Gabriel were telling him that God said such-and-such hadiths. The reason for the fact that hadiths ascribed by polytheists to God are far less than the million plus hadiths ascribed to Muhammad is that people rarely believed in such hadiths ascribed directly to God; most Hanbali Sunnites (past and present) and Wahabis hate Sufis and they rarely quote such silly hadiths invented by the Sufi-Sunnite sheikhs. Sufis in later eras stopped inventing hadiths ascribed to God and spread the myth that God talks to them directly in dreams/visions and that their souls 'fly' up to Him to engage into conversations with Him!

About the Quranic Verse 67:3

Published in December 4, 2018

 

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, … The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "He who created seven heavens in layers. You see no discrepancy in the creation of the Dominant Lord. Look again. Can you see any cracks?" (67:3); what is meant by (discrepancy) here?  … Thank you …        

Answer:

 The Lord God says in the Quran: "He who created seven heavens in layers. You see no discrepancy in the creation of the Dominant Lord. Look again. Can you see any cracks? Then look again, and again, and your sight will return to you dazzled and exhausted." (67:3-4). The word (discrepancy) is the exact opposite of measure, balance, proportion, design, and estimation by the Lord God the Creator of the universe: "...God has set a measure to all things." (65:3); "Everything We created is precisely measured." (54:49); "He to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, Who took to Himself no son, who never had a partner in His kingship, Who created everything and determined its measure." (25:2); "...God designed the night and the day..." (73:20); "And the moon: We have disposed it in phases..." (36:39); "It is He who made the sun radiant, and the moon a light, and determined phases for it-that you may know the number of years and the calculation. God did not create all this except with truth..." (10:5); "And We sent down water from the sky in proper quantity, and settled it in the ground, and We are Able to take it away." (23:18); "He who sends down water from the sky in due proportion..." (43:11); "And the sky, He raised; and He set up the balance, So do not transgress in the balance." (55:7-8);. Of course, pollution made by human beings disturbed this balance in nature and human beings pay the heavy price for this pollution now.

The Quran and Arabic Syntax and Grammar

Published in December 5, 2018

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, … I specialize in Arabic grammar; I'd like you to allow me to publish articles on your great website about parsing the Quranic words and studying the syntactic structure of Quranic verses  … Thank you …      

Answer:

 We do not allow such useless writings within our website; it is no use parsing the Quranic words; the Arabic grammar is a branch of knowledge which has emerged in the Abbasid Era; it has nothing to do with the Quran; besides, the Quranic verses contradict many grammatical and syntactical rules; in fact, we are currently writing a book about the Quran in relation to grammar; please wait for it. What should be more important to you is to ponder deeply on meanings of Quranic verses; in fact, many Middle-Ages authors/'interpreters' have focused within their books of exegeses and commentaries on parsing the Quranic words and this offered corrupt meanings and explanations; this is part of rejecting, discarding, undermining, and abandoning the Quran.

Capitalism and Socialism

Published in December 5, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … In your own view, does Islam (i.e., the Quran) supportcapitalism or socialism/communism?  … Thank you …   

Answer:

 Islam has nothing to do with bloodsucking capitalism or with totalitarian, oppressive communism, socialism, and the other ideas of the Left. As per our understanding of the Quran, the higher value is justice within all fields – and economy and political life are no exception to this rule. We have written before about the fact that the Quran is against all forms of injustices; this includes (1) stopping  monopoly of merchandise, (2) allowing equal opportunities for all in the field of commerce and trade, (3) paying zakat/alms or charity donations to the poor and the needy, and (4) and controlling and reforming mechanisms of markets and trade so as to never allow the forming of a class of affluent ones who monopolize authority, power, and wealth within a given nation. This is based on direct democracy, transparency, checking all laws and those who formulate and apply them, etc. We have written briefly (within some articles, books, and fatwas) about such topics, and we will write further on them in detail later on.

My European Friend

Published in December 5, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … This question is posed to me by my European friend and I pose it to you: if a man does not believe in God, in the Hereafter, and in the Quran but he avoids all types of evil, injustices, and misdeeds and performs good deeds of charity, would he enter into Paradise when he would discover in the Hereafter that God exists? … Thank you …     

Answer:

 We have answered the same question many times in our fatwas section; yet, we repeat the answer here for your sake and for the sake of your European friend. Those who died after having performed good deeds and avoided evil all their lives but without the belief in the Lord God within monotheism will enter into Hell for eternity; their rewards for the good deed they have done were given to them while they were alive: "Whoever desires the worldly life and its glitter-We will fully recompense them for their deeds therein, and therein they will not be defrauded. These - they will have nothing but the Fire in the Hereafter. Their deeds are in vain therein, and their works are nullified." (11:15-16). Those who hope to enter into Paradise after obtaining the Lord God's mercy on the Last Day must combine sincere piety, many good deeds, and the monotheistic belief in the Lord God.

Congregational Prayers, Again!

Published in December 6, 2018

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … Is it better to pray alone or in groups; the Sunnites assume that congregational prayers are better and more rewarding; yet, the Quran does NOT mention this Sunnite idea; I feel that I attain piety more when I pray alone within concentration; what is your own view? …  Thank you …        

Answer:

 We have answered this question before; we assert briefly here that Sunnite myths/hadiths include one about making congregational prayers better than praying in solitude with 25 or 27 'degrees' of rewards! This is very silly! What are these degrees or units? How are they measured by Sunnites?! Why not 39 or 59 degrees?! The Quran does NOT mention any preference to either praying alone or praying in groups; you can choose for yourself; the Quran focuses on observing piety, reverence, and concentration during prayers within the fear of the Lord God and to attain/apply piety within all one's behavior as the fruit of daily prayers by avoiding sins and injustices.

Crimes and Infringements by the Police

Published in December 6, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … What do you think ofcrimes and infringements committed by the policemen in the Arab world? … What is your view of those policemen who extract signed confessions under duress or by means of torturing victims and those who force the weak ones to be informants? … Thank you …

Answer:

 Corruption is based on tyranny within those affluent ones in power who monopolize authority; in the Third-World countries, policemen assume they are 'masters' who have the 'right' to oppress and control citizens/'slaves' and to torture, imprison, and frame them. Policemen in that case serve tyrannical rulers. In contrast, in democracies of the West, policemen do their best to serve and protect citizens. The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "And thus We set up in every city its leading wicked criminals, to conspire in it, but they conspire only against themselves, and they do not realize it." (6:123). As always, the Lord God says nothing but the Absolute Truth.

About the Quranic verse 33:72

Published in December 6, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "We offered the Trust to the heavens, and the earth, and the mountains; but they refused to bear it, and were apprehensive of it; but the human being accepted it. He was unfair and ignorant. " (33:72) … What is meant by (Trust) and when it was offered to human beings? …What do you think? …  Thank you …    

Answer:

 This (Trust) is freedom granted to human beings to (dis)believe and to (dis)obey while bearing full responsibility for their choices; this is the test imposed on all human beings on earth. The heaven and the earth chose never to be free and to adhere to absolute obedience to the Lord God their Creator: "Then He turned to the heaven, and it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth, "Come, willingly or unwillingly." They said, "We come willingly."" (41:11); this obedience of heaven and earth means praising the Lord God all the time: "Praising Him are the seven heavens, and the earth, and everyone in them. There is not a thing that does not glorify Him with praise, but you do not understand their praises..." (17:44). As for human beings, the Lord God has made monotheism inherent in their souls (and their DNA) when they were in Barsakh before being born on earth: "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 polytheism before; and we are their descendants who came after them; will you destroy us for what the deniers did?"" (7:172-173). Souls are dressed in human flesh and live for a predetermined duration to be tested before the inevitable death. The soul which controls the human body chooses to (dis)believe and to (dis)obey; yet, the Lord God fully controls human bodies and their functions and life and death: "I have placed my trust in God, my Lord and your Lord. There is not a creature but He holds it by the forelock..." (11:56); "Do they desire other than the religion of God, when to Him has submitted everything in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and to Him they will be returned?" (3:83); "To God prostrates everyone in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, as do their shadows, in the morning and in the evening." (13:15). Inanimate things from cells, electrons, nuclei, to stars and galaxies absolutely obey God without being tested or being given any measure of freedom. In contrast, true Muslims/monotheists choose to submit willingly, body and soul, to the Lord God. human beings lose their freedom temporarily during sleep, coma, and illness, but otherwise, they are free agents as long as they live; they lose freedom upon death as they die and will be resurrected and judged in spite of themselves. Those in Paradise regain their freedom of action; those in Hell continue losing their freedom forever; thus, arrogant sinners must wake up and heed the Quranic warning.

Prayers and Zakat

Published in December 7, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Why prayers and Zakat are mentioned together in several Quranic verses? What is the relation between both acts of worship (i.e.. to pray and to donate charity money)? Are we to donate money to the poor/needy after we pray every day? …  What do you think? … Thank you …

Answer:

 You misunderstand the meaning of Zakat; it has other meanings besides donating charity money; literally, it means to recommend oneself to God by performing good deeds and to purify one's soul; i.e., by good deeds and acts of worship done within piety, reverence, and fear of the Lord God; details about Zakat (i.e., purifying one's soul) and prayers are found in our YouTube subtitled-into-English "Quranic Moments" episodes about prayers.

About the Quranic Chapter 105

Published in December 7, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … Some Quran-hating atheists ridiculethe Quranic Chapter 105 because of what the Sunnite books of exegeses tell readers about it; away from Sunnite mythology, what is your own ponderings on the Quranic Chapter 105?  … Thank you …     

Answer:

  We never believe the Sunnite myth that the Quranic Chapter 105 is about a Yemeni tyrannical Jewish ruler who led his troops and elephants and headed towards Mecca to destroy the Kaaba and he and his soldiers were destroyed and smitten by God. We tend to think that the Quranic Chapter 105 is about the destruction of the people of Lot; the destruction mentioned in it applies to them when we find similar details in the Quranic story of Lot. It is silly to imagine elephants being herded to march for weeks/months in vast deserts from Yemen to Mecca; besides, armed men and catapults could have destroyed the Kaaba; there is no need for elephants. This Sunnite myth is concocted and fabricated by orators/narrators in the Abbasid Era.

The Lord God Is our Helper

Published in December 7, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … Message (1): I wish all Arabs would hear about the existence of your great Quranism website; many people who delve deep into reading hadiths-books reject Islam and convert to atheism and they do not know about Quranism; I, myself, when I preached Quranism to my workplace colleagues, they accused me of being a masonic atheist and a 'communist' man who hates Muhammad and seeks to destroy 'Islam'! …  Message (2): I suggest a simple way to allow people to donate money (even 5 US$ daily) to your Quranism website so that you may have your own satellite channel so as to reach out for millions of people; your website is read only by thousands of Arabs and few hundreds of non-Arabs despite your unique, unprecedented reformist thought … Message (3): Quranists must have their own chat-rooms in order to contact so many people (Muhammadans, Christians, etc.) in order to convince them that Quranism is the Only True Islam; this way, Wahabi terrorism will end and peace will reign supreme everywhere … Thank you … 

Answer:

 Our means are modest and we are impecunious; we, as a Quranist thinker, fight with our bare hands within our Quranism website against obscurantism and mountains of myths of the polytheistic Muhammadans and we suffer media blackout imposed on our person. We do our best to reach seekers of monotheism and enlightenment; the Lord God does not burden any soul beyond its capacity. We hope that our dear fellow Quranists worldwide would continue to copy and paste links of our videos, articles, and books within cyberspace (e.g., YouTube and social media networks) to raise awareness of others regarding Quranism as the Only True Islam.

About the Quranic Verse 15:41

Published in December 8, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What is the meaning of this verse: "He said, "This is a Straight Path with Me."" (15:41)? What is meant by the term "Straight Path" here in relation to the Lord God? … Thank you …

Answer:

 Satan/Iblis the Devil has said the following to the Lord God about seducing human beings: "He said, "My Lord...I will lure them all away." "Except for Your sincere servants among them."" (15:39-40); the Lord God's response has been the following: "He said, "This is a Straight Path with Me." "Over My servants you have no authority, except for the sinners who follow you." And Hell is the meeting-place for them all." (15:41-43). This means that the verse 15:41 refers to God's vow that sincere believers in the Him, who are His servants, will not be seduced by Satan and devils as long as they choose willingly adhere to piety within monotheism; this chance is available for all living human beings: "When you read the Quran, seek refuge with God from Satan the outcast. He has no authority over those who believe and trust in their Lord. His authority is only over those who follow him and deify him along with the Lord." (16:98-100); "Those who are pious - when an impulse from Satan strikes them, they remind themselves, and immediately see clearly. But their brethren lead them relentlessly into error, and they never stop short." (7:201-202); "As for those who are guided, He increases them in guidance, and He has granted them their righteousness." (47:17).

Honorifics!

Published in December 8, 2018

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I dislike very much the honorifics used by Shiites before and after names of Ali and their Shiite imams and certain other historical figures; such honorifics are as silly as the ones used by Sunnites to sanctify their imams and the men who were contemporaries of Prophet Muhammad … Who have invented such honorifics and when? … Thank you …    

Answer:

 We do not know who invented them; Shiite and Sunnite writers of the Abbasid Era, and other later eras, have used such honorifics in most cases because they deify mortals. The Sunnite Muhammadans would call anyone as 'disbeliever' or infidel/heretic who has forsaken Islam if they mention the so-called companions of Muhammad without the usual honorifics. The Shiite Muhammadans would do the same concerning Ali Ibn Abou Talib, their 'immortal' god, if one dares to mention his name without the honorifics; the same applies to their 'holy' imams. Both Sunnites and Shiites deify and sanctify these mortal men more than they deify/sanctify the Lord God. Those with whom God is pleased are mentioned in the Quran as the winners in Paradise who deserved to enter it as they passed the test of life with success: "...O relieved soul. Return to your Lord, pleased and accepted. Enter among My servants. Enter My Paradise." (89:27-30). Hence, one is not to adhere to the myth that God is pleased with certain companions/persons who are named so-and-so; the verses 89:27-30 apply to the pious ones (known only to the Lord God) in all eras in general. Besides, we do not know any of the names of the pious, sincere ones who were contemporaries of Muhammad and are referred to in this verse: "The Pioneers - the first of the immigrants and the supporters, and those who followed them in righteousness. God is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens beneath which rivers flow, where they will abide forever. That is the sublime triumph." (9:100). As for names of 'companions' mentioned in history books, history in most cases mentions only those Arab tyrants/sinners who committed aggressions and violated the Quranic sharia laws.

The Title of the Quranic Chapter 64

Published in December 8, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What is meant by (Al-Taghabun) which is the title of the Quranic Chapter 64? …  Thank you …  

Answer:

 The title of the Quranic Chapter 64 is explained here: "The Day when He gathers you for the Day of Gathering - that is the Day of Mutual Exchange. Whoever believes in God and acts with integrity, He will remit his misdeeds, and will admit him into gardens beneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme achievement.But as for those who disbelieve and denounce Our Verses - these are the inmates of the Fire, dwelling therein forever; and what a miserable fate!" (64:9-10). The Quranic/Arabic word (Al-Taghabun) means mutual exchange; i.e., when absolute justice will prevail as those unjust, evil ones will face the result of their bad deeds and the wronged parties will be comforted by this divine retribution. The wronged parties and the unjust ones will exchange debates/arguments of defending themselves and pleading their cause before the Lord God. This means that one's deeds decide one's fate in the Hereafter. The term (Taghabun) also means the removal of injustice as justice will prevail and retribution will be exacted against the unjust ones who will enter into Hell-Fire forever; i.e., they will never get out of it and will never evade it, and this applies to the tyrannical, unjust rulers of the Middle-East countries who wronged and committed injustices against millions of people.

Corrupters and Reform

Published in December 9, 2018

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …You have contradicted yourself; in your article, in English, titled "In Order to Save What Can be Saved: We Say the Following about Mohammed Ibn Salman Now" (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=19106), you assume that a corrupter like Ibn Salman would repent and make amends and introduce reform; yet, you have mentioned that Ibn Salman is incorrigible, and may get assassinated, in your book about him, in English, titled "A Witness of the Earliest Months of The Rule of the Saudi Crown-Prince Ibn Salman (Oct.–Dec. 2017)" (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=111). Of course, you know that the Lord God says the following in the Quran: "...God does not foster the deeds of the corrupt."" (10:81)  … Thank you …        

Answer:

 The Quranic phrase in 10:81 was uttered by Moses within the context of facing Pharaoh and his magicians: "And when they threw, Moses said, "What you produced is sorcery, and God will make it fail. God does not foster the deeds of the corrupt."" (10:81). Thus, it is OK to quote these words of Moses in the Quran about those corrupt, unrepentant ones who insist on spreading corruption and who pretend to be reformers; they follow the footsteps of Moses' Pharaoh who said the following to his people: "..."I do not show you except what I see, and I do not lead you except to the path of guidance."" (40:29). Of course, Pharaoh spent his life spreading corruption, tyranny, and terrorism and he died as a sinful, self-deified man who was chasing two prophets of the Lord God and their people who fled from his grave injustices. Of course, any corrupters during their lifetimes (i.e., before they die) may repent even if their grave sins are so many: "Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves: do not despair of God's mercy, for God forgives all sins. He is indeed the Forgiver, the Clement."" (39:53). Of course, repentance entails making amends, introducing reform, and correcting one's faith; in that case, God will forgive the repentant ones: "...those who repent, and believe, and do good deeds. These - God will replace their bad deeds with good deeds. God is ever Forgiving and Merciful. Whoever repents and acts righteously has inclined towards God with repentance." (25:70-71). There are no contradiction between our article and our book; both are to preach and warn Ibn Salman so that he may repent; he should heed the fate of corrupters like Mubarak, Saddam Hussein, Ben Ali, and Kaddafi; he is to choose either to repent or to ignore the warning; our article ends in quoting this verse: "You will remember what I am telling you, so I commit my case to God. God is Observant of the servants."" (40:44).
