Cont’d from page 2
[46:6] And when the people are summoned (on the Day
of Judgment), their idols will become their enemies, and will denounce
[10:18] They worship beside GOD idols that possess
no power to harm them or benefit them, and they say, “These
are our intercessors at GOD!” Say, “Are you informing
GOD of something He does not know in the heavens or the earth?”
Be He glorified. He is the Most High; far above needing partners.
[17:57] Even the idols that they implore are seeking
the ways and means towards their Lord. They pray for His mercy,
and fear His retribution. Surely, the retribution of your Lord is
[39:3] Absolutely, the religion shall be devoted
to GOD alone. Those who set up idols beside Him say, “We idolize
them only to bring us closer to GOD; for they are in a better position!”
GOD will judge them regarding their disputes. GOD does not guide
such liars, disbelievers.
[2:166] Those who were followed will disown those
who followed them. They will see the retribution, and all ties among
them will be severed.
4. Doing these things while being unaware
of their gross sin
by simply not studying the Quran carefully
(as God commanded us) or following their ancestors ways.
[7:173] Nor can you say, “It was our parents
who practiced idolatry, and we simply followed in their footsteps.
Will You punish us because of what others have innovated?”
[12:106] The majority of those who believe in GOD
do not do so without committing idol worship.
[6:22] On the day when we summon them all, we will
ask the idol worshipers, “Where are the idols you set up?”
[6:23] Their disastrous response will be, “By
GOD our Lord, we never were idol worshipers.”
[6:24] Note how they lied to themselves, and how
the idols they had invented have abandoned them.
[2:165] Yet, some people set up idols to rival GOD,
and love them as if they are GOD. Those who believe love GOD the
most. If only the transgressors could see themselves when they
see the retribution! They will realize then that all power belongs
to GOD alone, and that GOD’s retribution is awesome.
In the end, I concluded my argument with a few other verses as
a reminder and a manifest warning so they may take heed.
[4:82] Why do they not study the Quran carefully?
If it were
from other than GOD, they
would have found in it numerous contradictions.
[6:106] Follow what is revealed to you from your
Lord, there is no god except He, and disregard the idol worshipers.
[18:54] We have cited in this Quran every kind of
example, but the human being is the most argumentative creature.
[32:22] Who is more evil than one who is reminded
of these revelations of his Lord, then insists upon disregarding
them? We will certainly punish the guilty.
[47:24] Why do they not study the Quran carefully?
Do they have locks on their minds?
[47:25] Surely, those who slide back, after the
guidance has been manifested to them, the devil has enticed them
and led them on.
Subhaan Allah (Glory be to God), no wonder prophet Muhammad will
complain to God on the Day of Judgment that his people have deserted
May Allah (God) grant us:
The Knowledge to recognize
The Wisdom to adopt it
as our path
The Patience to steadfastly
adhere to it, and
The Courage to defend it.
