Takfiris?

Published in January 10, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The term (Takfiris) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takfiri + https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takfir) is mentioned in the Arab and Egyptian media to describe Wahabi terrorists (i.e., ISIS terrorists and their likes); is it a correct term? What is your own view? Any ideas?  … Thank you …

Answer:

 Of course, it is a correct term; those who massacre the innocent and commit indiscriminate killings and deem their heinous crimes of terrorism as 'jihad' are mostly Wahabi organizations (e.g., ISIS & Al-Qaeda) financed and protected by some countries in the West and in the Middle-East. We refuse the appellation (Islamists) given to these criminals and terrorists; they have nothing to do with Islam. Extremist Wahabis especially terrorists declare non-Wahabis as infidels who deserve to die! The obsequious Wahabi sheikhs/clergy inside Saudi Arabia, who worship the Al-Saud rulers, declare all non-Wahabis as infidels and apostates who deserve to die. In contrast, the Holy Quran indicates in many verses the descriptions/deeds/stances of disbelievers as a kind of warning to the humankind so that they seek guidance and reform and NOT to put anyone to death. Absolute religious freedom is a main Quranic higher value; religious choice is a personal responsibility for each individual; the Lord God, and not any mortals, will judge this on the Last Day. In most world religions and sects/doctrines, those who are nonbelievers are deemed as infidels. This is OK as long as no acts of violence or aggression are committed; in some wicked terrestrial religions of Satan (e.g., Sunnite Wahabism), being declared as an infidel means there would be terrorists seeking to put you to death or to massacre/rape/rob you along with your family members.

One of the Misguided Majority

Published in January 10, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  Peace of the Lord God be with you. I am a retired university professor of engineering computer science, and mathematics; I am in favor of Islamization of sciences; I would like to prove to you scientifically that Sunna hadiths are OK, true, valid, and correct and that they contain many solutions to today's problems........Hence, the Quran cannot be understood unless within the perspective of hadiths..........Thus, Mathematics can be employed to prove the true faith.............. What do you think?   … Thank you …

Answer:

 We return your greetings with better ones; yet, we feel very sorry for your sake since a scientist and a professor like you believes in myths known as Sunna hadiths which are the source of ignorance obscurantism, and polytheism in the Arab world. We welcome you to our Quranism website as a reader in order to get to know the Quran-based facts of Islam which prove that hadiths contradict the Holy Quran. It is most unbecoming that a professor like you would continue to believe in myths; this is unfit for you.

Outstretched Necks

Published in January 11, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The Quranic description of outstretched necks is repeated in the Quranic text; what does it indicate, anyway? … Thank you …

Answer:

 It refers to humiliation and fear and sometimes to trying to see something closely: "Do not ever think that God is unaware of what the unjust ones do. He only defers them until a Day when the sights stare. Their necks outstretched, their heads upraised, their gaze unblinking, their hearts void." (14:42-43); "Their eyes humiliated, they will emerge from the graves, as if they were swarming locusts. Their necks outstretched towards the Caller, the disbelievers will say, “This is a difficult Day.”" (54:7-8); "What is with those who disbelieve, stretching their necks towards you." (70:36).

Seeking Refuge in the Lord God

Published in January 11, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …   Should I seek refuge in the Lord God against Satan the outcast only or also against unjust, evil people? any ideas?  … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Against both. This is OK; one seeks the help and aid of the Lord God when one is afraid and when one desires not to make mistakes; the following verses are addressed to Muhammad about what to say regarding seeking refuge in Allah against Satan: "And say, “My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the urgings of the devils. And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they become present.”" (23:97-98); "Say, “I take refuge in the Lord of Daybreak." (113:1); "Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of the humankind." (114:1). This is about Mary when she felt afraid when Gabriel came to her in a human form: "She said, “I take refuge from you in the Dominant Lord, should you be righteous.”" (19:18). Moses said the following: "Moses said, “I have sought the protection of my Lord and your Lord, from every tyrant who does not believe in the Day of Judgment.”" (40:27); "I have taken refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me." (44:20); "...“God forbid that I should be so ignorant.”" (2:67). Noah said the following: "...“O My Lord, I seek refuge in You, from asking You about what I have no knowledge of. Unless You forgive me, and have mercy on me, I will be one of the losers.”" (11:47).

About Missed Raqas

Published in January 11, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  What shall I do if I missed any of the Raqas? I mean if I forgot and performed the (after)noon and night prayers in 3 Raqas instead of the required 4? I desire a Quran-based answer. Any ideas? … Thank you …        

Answer:

 Please watch our YouTube subtitled-into-English videos about prayers; please read our book titled "Between the Quranic Prayers of Muslims and the Devilish Prayers of the Muhammadans".  We advise you to perform the missed Raqa even after ending the prayers; we also advise you to pray within more concentration, reverence, and piety.

About the Quranic Verse 13:34

Published in January 12, 2020

 

  

Question: … Dear Sir, …  What is meant by (defender) in 13:34? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 The Lord God says the following in the Quran: "There is for them torment in the worldly life, but the torment of the Hereafter is harsher. And they have no defender against God." (13:34). This means no one and nothing can save them from the torment inflicted on them by the Lord God in the Hereafter inside Hell; this is repeated here about torment inflicted in this world: "Have they not travelled through the earth, and seen the consequences for those before them? They were stronger than them, and they left more impact on earth. But God seized them for their sins, and they had no defender against God." (40:21). No one can defend Muhammad against torment in this world had he followed whims of disbelievers, instead of the Quran, and disobeyed Allah: "...Were you to follow their desires, after the Knowledge that has come to you, you would have neither ally nor defender against God." (13:37). This refutes the myths of the Muhammadans about intercession and Muhammad as the 'grand intercessor'; the Muhammadans seldom pay any attention to the Quran despite their claims of believing in it.

Tests of Life

Published in January 13, 2020

 

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … My son asked me why does not Allah interfere to save (1) the wronged parties from grave injustices and persecution inflicted upon them, (2) children who have cancer, & (3) countries which suffer famine. How can I answer him? Any ideas? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 Ordeals/adversity are part of the tests of life in this world; patient, appreciative, pious ones will be among the winners on the Last Day; each human being has a limited lifetime on earth and they can bear patiently with all tests/fates and pass them within success if they desire to do so; in the Hereafter, human beings will eternally dwell either in Hell or Paradise; bearing this in mind will alleviate any suffering in this transient world.

Al-Azhar Must Be Closed Down

Published in January 13, 2020

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, …  I am an Azharite professor who head the international league of graduates of Al-Azhar University; I assure you, Sir, that the correct hadiths assert the facts that caliphate and Imamism from Qorayish are part of Islam;............... and the reasons behind this are as follows:.................... And these hadiths predict............... Imams an authors like Al-Qurtubi say that.................. What do you think? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 There are nothing called as 'correct' hadiths; what you assert in your email message shows the collapse, obscurantism, and moral bankruptcy of Al-Azhar; we assert here what we have called for in our previous writings: Al-Azhar university an Azharite schools in Egypt and outside Egypt must be closed down; Al-Azhar institution must be turned into an NGO of consulters (whose views are never binding to the Egyptian State and to any citizens) which has nothing to do with education and the cultural and religious life in Egypt; this will save billions of US$ and will stop hindering the much-needed religious and political reform; this will be the first step to smash the alliance between enthroned tyrants and the clergymen of all types in the countries of the Muhammadans.

Parables

Published in January 14, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Does the Quran contain any parables like the Bible? Any ideas? … Thank you …   

Answer:

 Yes it does; we refer you to the following verses which exemplify this: 13:17, 14:25, 14:45, 16:74, 17:48, 24:35, 25:9, 25:39, 29:43, and 59:21.

Sharia Laws for Each Messenger/Prophet

Published in January 14, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  This is about God's messengers and prophets: "...For each of you We have assigned a law and a method..." (5:48); yet, you say that all of them carried the One and Same Message of Islam; how come?!   … Thank you …     

Answer:

 We have answered this question before; we desire that you read our previous fatwas. We repeat here briefly that all divine messages are the same in general (e.g., regarding the monotheism of [There is no God but Allah] and never to deify things and mortals) but they differ in some details especially regarding prohibited items; e.g., the message of Jesus had its ease/facilitation; see 3:50, 4:160, and 6:146. In contrast to sharia given to Moses about putting murderers to death, Diyya money can be paid as per the Quranic sharia laws instead of retribution; see 2:178. Prohibition of working during the Sabbath is not a requirement for Quran-believing people; see 2:65, 4:47, 4:154, 7:163, and 16:124.

About the Quran-Based Country of Islam

Published in January 15, 2020

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … ...........As for your ideas about a Quran-based State of Islamic direct democracy, you seem to forget that some of its citizens will be those who disbelieve in the Quran and follow other religions; there will be those who refuse to apply penalties of flogging fornicators and cutting off hands of thieves............... …  Thank you …        

Answer:

 We have answered such a question before; we repeat briefly here that in this Quran-based country, such as was the case with the Yathreb city-state, all peaceful people are citizens regardless of their faiths/beliefs and they enjoy all citizenship rights and human rights; this is Islam in terms of behavior. As for Islam in terms of faith and monotheism, this is judged by Allah only in the Hereafter and not by mortals in this world. Violators of human rights should be punished by laws imposed within direct democracy of Islamic Shura/consultation. This requires restoring peace, justice, all freedoms, and spending on the needy within Zakat and the categories of its recipients. Such a Quran-based country of direct democracy will be established only when the Arabs are liberated from the dominance of enthroned tyrants as well as clergymen of all types. Peaceful jihad by raising awareness about Quranist religious reform, the culture of democracy, and human rights is the first step; it will take decades to topple all enthroned tyrants and to establish a true democracy.

Burden

Published in January 15, 2020

 

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … What is the difference in the meaning of burden in 2:286 & 3:81? … Thank you …

Answer:

 There is no difference because covenant/pledge is a type of a burden: "...Our Lord, do not burden us as You have burdened those before us..." (2:286); "...and unloads the burdens and the shackles that are upon them..." (7:157); " God received the covenant of the prophets, “Inasmuch as I have given you of scripture and wisdom; should a messenger come to you verifying what you have, you shall believe in him, and support him.” He said, “Do you affirm My covenant and take this burden upon yourselves?” They said, “We affirm it.” He said, “Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.”" (3:81).

A Would-Be Quranist Researcher

Published in January 16, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I am convinced that Quranism is the Only True Islam. What pieces of advice would you give me to become a Quranist researcher? What is your methodology? How can I avoid being influenced by faulty notions of the earthly/terrestrial religions of the Muhammadans when I ponder on the Holy Quran? …  Thank you …

Answer:

 You should read and ponder a lot within our archive of writings; you can write comments since we have made you an account on our Qurnaism website; you can begin with reading these two books, in English, titled "The Quran: Sufficient as a Source of Islamic Legislation" & "How to Understand the Holy Quran", found on these two links, respectively:

It Is a Form of Disbelief to Believe in Mortals

Published in January 16, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … So, I should not believe in Muhammad; rather, I should believe in the Messenger which is the Quran right? What is the difference?! … Thank you …     

Answer:

 To believe in mortals is sheer disbelief/polytheism; one is the believe in God only; one believes with the messenger (i.e., Muhammad) in the Messenger (with a capital [M], referring to the Holy Quran itself). To believe in someone means to deify him/her. The Quranic command in the last verses of the Quranic Chapter Two to believe with the messengers (including Muhammad) means to believe in the Celestial Scriptures granted to them by the Lord God; this means one is to believe in the Quran as God's Word granted to Muhammad.

The Possible and the Impossible

Published in January 17, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … Is it possible that God's Word, the Quran, is with us and we cannot infer from it scientific facts in several branches of knowledge?! … Thank you … 

Answer:

 Yes; this is possible. The Muhammadans have abandoned the Quran; their hadiths replaced its sharia laws for them; hence, they can never discern new meanings in the Quranic text; the Quranic Light does not touch the souls/hearts of those who believe in books/narratives/hadiths besides the Quran. Such devilish discourse are Taghut or tyranny. As for the relation between the Quran and science, we refer you to our book, in English, titled "The West and the Miraculous Scientific Indications in the Holy Quran", found on this link:

Do Not Argue with Quran-Hating Disbelievers

Published in January 17, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I was talking with one of those polytheists who admire and adhere to Al-Bokhary hadiths; he is among my nearest relatives and I care for him, and I told him that how to perform prayers is inherited from the monotheistic religion of Abraham and we never need hadiths to tell us how to pray; he scoffed and ridiculed me and mocked, unknowingly, the Quranic proofs I've provided............... What shall I do to guide him?!   …  Thank you …    

Answer:

 Please do not argue with Quran-hating disbelievers; do not waste your time. Life is very short and you should never invest your time in profitless endless, fruitless arguments; invest your time in good deeds and acts of worship; one cannot guide people whom one loves. As per the Quran itself, it is a grave sin to argue with haters of the Quran.

Answer:

 Your ideas are original, our dear son; we will promote you to a writer on our Arabic website so that you can write more ideas about the same topic so that all Quranists would discuss it in their comments.

Extremely Difficult

Published in January 18, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I take pride in being a Quranist like you; I'm indebted to you forever for guiding me to the Only True Islam. ......... I seek your sincere advice; my family members hate my Quranism and my preaching it to them! It is extremely difficult to go on living amongst them! I have little money which would allow me to rent a flat to live on my own away from them! Shall I do this or not?! I will sever all ties with them! Peaceful coexistence with them is almost impossible now!......... Any ideas? … Thank you …  

Answer:

 You have not mentioned if such family members are your relatives and siblings or your parents, spouse, and offspring. Anyway, you should not shun or desert them; treat them kindly; do not argue with them anymore about religion; set a good example for them by your good conduct and piety. Even Muhammad suffered from problems with his wives, as per the Quran. Adhere to patience and piety; all human beings are tests to one another. You should endure patiently with the trials and ordeals of life. Please ponder deeply on the Quranic Chapters 33, 45, 43, 15, and 25.

You Have Your Religion and We Have Ours

Published in January 18, 2020

 

Question: ............ The curses of Allah will descend upon an atheist like you, Mr. Mohamed Subhy Mansour! You are pretending to believe in the Quran in order to repel others from it and make them hate it! You seek to spread your atheism in the Arab world! .................. You are the arch-enemy of Islam and Allah! Our Holy Prophet Muhammad will disown you in the Hereafter! You get paid by agents of the West who seek to destroy Islam! You receive millions of US$ annually! ...................…  

Answer:

 First of all, our name is Dr. Ahmed Subhy Mansour. You have your own religion and we have ours. We believe in the Quran only; you insist on being among the polytheistic Muhammadans who believe in hadiths besides the Quran. We disbelieve in all devilish hadiths; we never deify mortals and things/relics/tombs like the Muhammadans. We never verbally abuse or insult the Muhammadans; we forgive you for insulting our person in your email message. The Lord God will settle our religious differences and disputes on the Last Day. We approve of your religious choices since they are made freely; we approve of our own religious choices since they are also made freely. We seek that you adhere to your religion until you die and to let us adhere to ours until we die. We hope to die as a monotheistic thinker who has served the Quran and adhered to it all the time.

About the Murdered Prophets

Published in January 19, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Are all messengers/prophets alive somewhere in the Barsakh level after their death or not? Any ideas? … Thank you …        

Answer:

 No. Only those who are murdered/killed while serving the cause of the Lord God (among prophets and non-prophets) are alive in the Barsakh Paradise; this applies to some prophets who were murdered by disbelievers/polytheists. Of course, Paradise dwellers will meet with all prophets/messengers inside Paradise; all of them will be brethren/companions there for eternity in the Hereafter: "Whoever obeys God and the Messenger - these are with those whom God has blessed - among the prophets, and the sincere, and the witnesses, and the righteous. Excellent are those as companions." (4:69).
