Quranic Terminology: Being (Un)Thankful to the Lord God (4)
Quranic Terminology: Adl

Quranic Terminology: Adl


Published in July 2, 2019

Translated by: Ahmed Fathy



Firstly: the Quranic term (Adl) when it refers to polytheism/disbelief:

  When one attributes equals to the Lord God who share divinity with Him equally, this is utter polytheism/disbelief which is a grave injustice: "...polytheism is a grave injustice." (31:13). "Praise be to God, Who created the heavens and the earth, and made the darkness and the light. Yet those who disbelieve ascribe equals to their Lord." (6:1); "Say, "Produce your witnesses who would testify that God has prohibited this." If they testify, do not testify with them. And do not follow the whims of those who deny Our revelation, and those who do not believe in the Hereafter, and those who equate others with their Lord." (6:150); "Or, who created the heavens and the earth, and rains down water from the sky for you? With it We produce gardens full of beauty, whose trees you could not have produced. Is there another god with God? But they are a people who equate." (27:60). The Muhammadans invent many gods/deities and make them equal to the Lord Allah; they deify and worship a supreme deity whom they named as 'Muhammad' which has nothing to do with the mortal prophet mentioned in the Quran. The Muhammadans deify, worship venerate, and sanctify other mortals. The Shiites do so with their imams, clergymen, and the household members of Muhammad; i.e., his daughter Fatima and her husband Ali as well as their sons Hussein and Hassan and their progeny. The Sunnites do so with tens of thousands of companions, caliphs, imams, and authors. The Sufis do so with their sheikhs/saints and nonhuman (in)animate creatures because they deify the universe and the Earth and all creatures as part of God! This is as per the Sufi notions of the unity of existence; they assume that God and the universe are like a sea and its waves and that there are no boundaries between the Creator and His creatures at all as they are part of the 'illumination' or light emanating from the Creator! This is utter blasphemy! It is a laughter-inducing fact that the imams/clergymen of the Muhammadans are keen on spreading their 'Islam' worldwide while feeling sorry that their religion of Satan has not yet reached Siberia, Alaska, and the Amazon areas! They do not seem to realize that True Islam is not found in their hearts/minds and has not reached their own countries! This fact makes us want to laugh and weep at the same time!   


Secondly: the Quranic term (Adl) when it refers to ransom on the Last Day:

 After ascribing equals to the Lord God, the polytheistic disbelievers who believed in many deities/gods besides Him will wish in vain, on the Last Day, to ransom themselves from Hell-Fire, even this ransom would equal the Earth's weight in gold: "As for those who disbelieve and die disbelievers, even the earth full of gold would not be accepted from any of them, were he to offer it for ransom. These will have a painful torment, and will have no saviors." (3:91); "For those who respond to their Lord is the best. But as for those who do not respond to Him, even if they possessed everything on earth, and twice as much, they could not ransom themselves with it. Those will have the worst reckoning; and their home is Hell - a miserable destination." (13:18); "If those who did wrong owned everything on earth, and the like of it with it, they would ransom themselves with it from the terrible suffering on the Day of Resurrection. But there will appear to them from God what they never anticipated." (39:47); "Had every soul which had done wrong possessed everything on earth, it would offer it as a ransom. They will hide the remorse when they witness the suffering, and it will be judged between them equitably, and they will not be wronged." (10:54); "And beware of a Day when no soul will avail another in the least, nor will any intercession be accepted on its behalf, nor will any ransom/Adl be taken from it, nor will they be helped." (2:48); "And beware of a Day when no soul will avail another soul in any way, and no ransom/Adl will be accepted from it, and no intercession will benefit it, and they will not be helped." (2:123); " So leave alone those who take their religion for play and pastime, and whom the worldly life has deceived. But remind with it, lest a soul becomes damned on account of what it has earned. It has no helper or intercessor besides God. Even if it offers every equal/Adl, none will be accepted from it. These are the ones who are delivered to perdition by their actions...." (6:70). The Muhammadans would wish, in vain, on the Day of Judgment to be ransomed away from Hell-Fire even by their own family members: "They will be shown each other. The criminal wishes he would be ransomed from the torment of that Day by his children. And his spouse, and his brother. And his family that sheltered him. And everyone on earth, in order to save him." (70:11-14). Thus, tyrants on the Last Day will have no power, authority, wealth, intercessors, or support. Those Muhammadans who owned petrodollars will not be able to ransom themselves with their ill-gotten wealth smuggled and deposited in the banks of the West and the East; on the Last Day, there will be no  West, East, or even Earth.  


Thirdly: the Quranic term (Adl) when it refers to creation by the Lord God:

 This is about the creation of humankind in the best shape: "He Who created you, and formed you, and proportioned you/Adalak?" (82:7).


Fourthly: the Quranic term (Adl) when it refers to the Quran itself as the Absolute Truth and Justice:

 The Lord God says the following about the perfection and completion of the Quran: "The Word of your Lord has been completed, in Truth and Justice/Adl..." (6:115). Yet, the Muhammadans claim that the Quran is imperfect and incomplete; they assume as if the Quran needs their Sunna hadiths to be completed! They believe in the myth that the Lord God has revealed an incomplete book which needs to be completed by hadiths of Al-Bokhary, Al-Ghazaly, and Al-Kulayni and their likes!


Fifthly: the Quranic term (Adl) when it refers to justice among people:

 Justice means equity and fairness within dealing with others; upholding justice is the basic purpose of the celestial messages conveyed by the Lord God's messengers: "We sent Our messengers with the clear proofs, and We sent down with them the Book and the Balance, that humanity may uphold justice. And We sent down iron, in which is violent force, and benefits for humanity. That God may know who supports Him and His messengers invisibly. God is Strong and Powerful." (57:25). This means that the Lord God has made the divine messages descend in order to urge all people; i.e., men and women, to uphold justice: political justice must be upheld by direct democracy; social justice must be upheld by providing for the needy and the poor, giving them their rights; and judicial justice must be upheld in courts. If justice is no realized using the Divine Balance of the Celestial Message, the alternative descended by the Lord God is (iron); i.e., wars and strife. Sadly, the state of incessant wars is the brief history of humanity in the past and until now! Of course Adl/justice and equity are synonymous in the following Quranic verses.

1- "If two groups of believers fight each other, reconcile between them. But if one group aggresses against the other, fight the aggressing group until it complies with God's command. Once it has complied, reconcile between them with justice, and be equitable. God loves the equitable." (49:9); we see here that one must rule/judge within justice.

2- "O you who believe! Stand firmly for equity, as witnesses to God, even if against yourselves, or your parents, or your relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, God takes care of both. So do not follow your desires, lest you swerve away from justice. If you deviate, or turn away - then God is Aware of what you do." (4:135); "O you who believe! Be upright to God, witnessing with equity; and let not the hatred of a certain people prevent you from acting justly. Adhere to justice, for that is nearer to piety; and fear God. God is informed of what you do." (5:8); justice and equity are linked here.

3- "And do not come near the property of the orphan, except with the best intentions, until he reaches maturity. And give full weight and full measure, equitably. We do not burden any soul beyond its capacity. And when you speak, be just, even if it concerns a close relative. And fulfill your covenant with God. All this He has enjoined upon you, so that you may take heed." (6:152); we see here that justice/equity must be observed in one's words and when goods are being weighed.

4- "If you fear you cannot act justly towards the orphans-then marry the women you like - two, or three, or four..." (4:3); thus, justice with orphans, by men, is to marry their mothers so that the orphans would have new/alternative fathers to care for them.

5- Muhammad is commanded to judge with justice among the People of the Book in Arabia who resort to him: "...If they come to you, judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they will not harm you in the least. But if you judge, judge between them equitably. God loves the equitable." (5:42); the same meaning is repeated here: "To this go on inviting, and be upright as you were commanded, and do not follow their desires, and say, "I believe in whatever Book God has sent down, and I was commanded to judge between you justly. God is our Lord and your Lord. We have our deeds, and you have your deeds. Let there be no quarrel between us and you. God will bring us together, and to Him is the ultimate return."" (42:15).

About upholding Adl/justice:

1- This is a divine command concerning all aspects of life: "God commands justice/Adl, and goodness, and generosity towards relatives. And He forbids immorality, and injustice, and oppression. He advises you, so that you may take heed." (16:90).

2- Upholding justice within courts of the judicial authority is an Islamic duty: "God instructs you to give back things entrusted to you to their owners. And when you judge between people, judge with justice/Adl. God's instructions to you are excellent. God is All-Hearing, All-Seeing." (4:58).

 Justice is upheld by people who judge within equity/justice: "Among the people of Moses is a community that guides by the Truth, and thereby does justice." (7:159); "Among those We created is a community-they guide by the Truth, and do justice thereby." (7:181). Upholding justice is exemplified in the following cases.

1- Divorce: "Once they have reached their term, either retain them honorably, or separate from them honorably. And call to witness the just people from among you, and give upright testimony for God. By that is exhorted whoever believes in God and the Last Day..." (65:2).

2- Debts and financial dealings: "O you who believe! When you incur debt among yourselves for a certain period of time, write it down. And have a scribe write in your presence, in all justice. And let no scribe refuse to write, as God has taught him. So let him write, and let the debtor dictate. And let him fear God, his Lord, and diminish nothing from it. But if the debtor is mentally deficient, or weak, or unable to dictate, then let his guardian dictate with fairness. And call to witness two men from among you. If two men are not available, then one man and two women whose testimony is acceptable to all - if one of them fails to remember, the other would remind her. Witnesses must not refuse when called upon. And do not think it too trivial to write down, whether small or large, including the time of repayment. That is more equitable with God, and stronger as evidence, and more likely to prevent doubt - except in the case of a spot transaction between you - then there is no blame on you if you do not write it down. And let there be witnesses whenever you conclude a contract, and let no harm be done to either scribe or witness. If you do that, it is corruption on your part. And fear God. God teaches you. God is aware of everything." (2:282).

3- Written will and testament: "O you who believe! When death approaches one of you, let two just persons from among you act as witnesses to the making of a bequest, or two persons from another people if you are travelling in the land and the event of death approaches you. Engage them after the prayer. If you have doubts, let them swear by God: "We will not sell our testimony for any price, even if he was a near relative, and we will not conceal God's testimony, for then we would be sinners."" (5:106).

4- Within the sin/violation of hunting during Ihram of pilgrimage: " O you who believe! do not hunt animals while you are in pilgrim sanctity. Whoever of you kills any intentionally, its penalty shall be a domestic animal comparable to what he killed, as determined by just persons among you - an offering delivered to the Kaaba..." (5:95).



1- There is no justice at all within both the rule and judicial authority in the countries of the Muhammadans; ironically, judges in courts have this Quranic verse written on the walls behind and above them: "...And when you judge between people, judge with justice/Adl..." (4:58).

2- There is no justice at all in the countries of the Muhammadans which are dominated by tyranny and corruption. A large percentage of justice is realized in West democracies where freedom, transparency, and impeachment are applied. In contrast, within the countries of the Muhammadans, deified enthroned tyrants control/ride clergymen who, in their turn, control/ride the citizens; those who dare to criticize the enthroned tyrants and the obsequious clergymen are imprisoned and tortured. They are sentenced to such unjust imprisonment terms by unjust judges who give their backs and napes to the walls where this Quranic verse is written:  "...And when you judge between people, judge with justice/Adl..." (4:58).

3- This is not surprising at all; the Muhammadans have wronged the Lord God with their injustice of polytheism as they deify things/tombs and mortals besides Him; hence, it is hardly expected that justice would dominate in the societies of the Muhammadans. The enthroned corrupt tyrants come from within the societies of the Muhammadans and never from outer space or from foreign countries; most citizens in the countries of the Muhammadans glorify tyrants and are keen on justifying and finding excuses for their crimes; likewise, the clergymen, soldiers, judges, etc. who serve the enthroned tyrants come from within the societies of the Muhammadans; i.e., from within the nations/citizens, and they curse and insult our person for calling of peaceful religious and political reform.      

4- The immediate introduction of religious reform is of vital importance; this should be heeded by those who understand.
