QURAN: An Extraordinary Book
Despite the clear commandments, why do the followers of Hadith &
Sunna fail to uphold Quran alone?
The answer is provided in the same Sura following the commandment
shown on Page 8. Verses 45 and 46 of Sura 17 inform us that those
who refuse to believe God and heed His commandment to uphold Quran
ALONE are deliberately isolated from Quran. These two crucial verses
are shown below:
“When you read the Quran, we place between
you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier.
And we place shields on their hearts, to prevent them from understanding
Quran, and deafness in their ears. Consequently, when you preach
your Lord IN THE QURAN ALONE they run away in aversion.” (17:45-46)
What More Can We Say??
Do You Believe God or Not?
God says that Quran is complete, perfect, & fully detailed,
and that you shall not seek any other source:
“We did not leave anything out of this book,
then all will be gathered before their Lord (for judgment). Those
who do not believe our verses are deaf and dumb; in total darkness.
God sends astray whomever He wills, and directs whomever He wills
in the right path.” (6:38-39)
“Shall I seek other than God as a source of
law, when He revealed THIS BOOK FULLY DETAILED? (6:114)
“The word of your Lord is COMPLETE in truth
and justice.” (6:115)
THE CONSEQUENCE OF NOT BELIEVING
… God says that Quran is complete, perfect, and fully detailed.
His commandments are clear and strict that YOU SHALL NOT UPHOLD
ANYTHING ELSE BESIDE QURAN as a source of religious guidance [6:114].
Now, you have the total freedom to decide to believe God, or to
reject His statements, and ignore His commandments, provided you
are willing (or unwilling) to accept the consequences.
You agree, no doubt, that refusing to believe God is a very serious
offense. Just how serious is expressed in verse 40 of Sura 7:
“Surely, those who do not believe our revelations,
and are too arrogant to heed them, the gates of the sky never open
for them, nor will they ever enter Paradise until the camel passes
through the needle’s eye. We thus requite the guilty.”
Thus, it is A PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY for those who refuse to believe
God to enter Paradise.
IMPORTANT CRITERION OF DIVINE REVELATION
Some people claim that the “Hadith & Sunna” are
divine revelations. Obviously, they are not aware that the criterion
of divine revelation is PERFECT PRESERVATION. Since the so-called
hadith & sunna of the Prophet have been vastly corrupted, they
can never meet the criterion of divine revelation. It is an acknowledged
fact that the vast majority of Hadiths are false fabrications.
“We have sent down the revelation, and we will
surely preserve it.” (15:9)
“Indeed, this is an honorable scripture. Falsehood
enter it in the past,
present, or future; a revelation from the Most Wise, the Most Praised.”
The blasphemy is evident when they claim that Hadith and Sunna
are divine revelations. Do they not realize that God Almighty is
capable of preserving His revelations?
HADITH & SUNNA = 100% CONJECTURE
Although God declares that Quran is FULLY DETAILED, and shall be
the only source, the majority of Muslims have been duped into following
the conjecture known as Hadith & Sunna.
While Quran is proven by PHYSICAL EVIDENCE to be the authentic
and unaltered word of God (see the book, QURAN: Visual Presentation
of the Miracle), Hadith and Sunna are unanimously recognized as
“Shall I seek OTHER THAN GOD as a source of
law, when He has revealed THIS BOOK FULLY DETAILED? ....The word
of your Lord is COMPLETE, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate
His words; He is the hearer, the omniscient. Yet, if you obey the
majority of people, they will take you away from the path of God.
That is because they follow CONJECTURE, and they fail to think.”
“They insist upon following conjecture, when
the guidance is given to them herein from their Lord.” (53:23)
