Returning Back to God
Cont’d from page 1
Most people would rather give more attention to their bodies than to themselves (i.e., the soul, the real person). They forget that this physical body, even if the person has built it big and strong, will one day become a useless piece of garment.
Myth of Intercession
The majority of believers in God believe that they are guided and they wishfully think that the gates of Heaven will be opened for them. They believe in their hearts that their idols such as Muhammad and Jesus will lead them to heaven, regardless of whether they have fulfilled their religious obligations or not. However, according to the Quran it is clear that no intercession is allowed in Submission unless it coincides with God’s will. God’s decision is final. [2:48, 123; 34:23, 43:86 etc.]
We learn from the Quran that Abraham, God’s beloved servant and the founder of Islam (Submission), could not intercede on behalf of his own father [9:114]. Noah could not intercede on behalf of his son [11:46]. Muhammad could not intercede on behalf of his uncle [111:1-3] or relatives [9:80].
If Prophet Muhammad could not intercede on behalf of his uncle or relatives, what makes those who idolize him against his will believe that Muhammad will lead them to heaven? On the contrary, Muhammad will turn down most of his followers on the Day of Resurrection for idolizing him against his will.
[41:6] Say, “I am no more than a human being like you, who has been inspired that your god is one god. You shall be devoted to Him, and ask His forgiveness. Woe to the idol worshipers.
[25:55] Yet, they still set up beside GOD idols that cannot benefit them,
nor harm them. Indeed, the disbeliever is an enemy of his Lord.
[46:5]Who is farther astray than those who idolize beside GOD idols that can never respond to them until the Day of Resurrection, and are totally unaware of their worship?
Muhammad himself did not know what would happen to him on the Day of Recompense. So how would he know what will happen to his so-called followers?
[46:9] Say, “I am not different from other messengers. I have no idea what will happen to me or to you. I only follow what is revealed to me. I am no more than a profound Warner.”
Most people think that they will end up in heaven without any certainty or assurance. They think they are doing righteous works and will end up as the winners; little do they know the truth. Thus we have to examine ourselves.
[18:103-104] Say, “Shall I tell you who the worst losers are? They are the ones whose works in this life are totally astray, but they think that they are doing good.”
[18:105] Such are the ones who disbelieved in the revelations of their Lord and in meeting Him. Therefore, their works are in vain; on the Day of Resurrection, they have no weight.
In conclusion, the majority of believers in God have been cheated by Satan, falling into his evil schemes of idolatry. Sadly, most people are unaware of their idolatry and that they are under Satan’s spell. The time has now come to us with a chance to escape from Satan’s prison and return back to our Creator, God Almighty and worshipping Him alone.
For this is where our true happiness lies, pleasing God and upholding His commandments and of course thanking Him in our prayers for the happiness and great joy that He has given to us all.
God bless all those that truly believe in Him. God bless the world.
Peace to all in God’s Kingdom of eternal bliss.
[28:87] Nor shall you be diverted from GOD's revelations, after they have come to you, and invite the others to your Lord. And do not ever fall into idol worship.
[30:31] You shall submit to Him, reverence Him, observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), and - whatever you do - do not ever fall into idol worship.
[34:37] It is not your money or your children that bring you closer to us. Only those who believe and lead a righteous life will receive the reward for their works, multiplied manifold. In the abode of Paradise they will live in perfect peace.

Greatness of God and who is worthy of worship?
[6:95] GOD is the One who causes the grains and the seeds to crack and germinate. He produces the living from the dead, and the dead from the living. Such is GOD; how could you deviate!
[40:64] GOD is the One who rendered the earth habitable for you, and the sky a formidable structure, and He designed you, and designed you well. He is the One who provides you with good provisions.* Such is GOD your Lord; Most Exalted is GOD, Lord of the universe.
[30:40] GOD is the One who created you. He is the One who provides for you. He is the One who puts you to death. He is the One who resurrects you. Can any of your idols do any of these things? Be He glorified. He is much too exalted to have any partners.
