Isn’t respecting God also respecting all His prophets and messengers
who have preached to us the importance of worshiping God alone?
Who do we love the most?
[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.
Is it possible to think that “Muslims” might be setting up Muhammad
as an idol beside God, though they would not want to admit it? As
shocking as this might seem to some, the answer is yes, based on
the behavior of some of the “Muslims” and the verses of the Quran.
[39:36] Is GOD not sufficient for His servant? They
frighten you with the idols they set up beside Him. Whomever GOD
sends astray, nothing can guide him.
[37:35] When they were told, “Laa Elaaha Ella ALLAH
[There is no other god beside GOD],” they turned arrogant.
Idol-worship is Satan’s trap
It is Satan who does not want people to worship God alone. He
promised to use his powers to lead people astray and to have them
set up idols beside God:
[7:17] “I will come to them from before them, and
from behind them, and from their right, and from their left, and
You will find that most of them are unappreciative.”
Satan does not care if the idol we set up beside God is Jesus,
Muhammad or Ali. He does not care if the idol we set up is our business,
or money. He does not mind if our idol
worship is obvious or subtle. All Satan wants from the believers
in God, such as the Jews, Christians and Muslims, is that we nullify
our worship of God alone by falling into some sort of idol worship.
Setting up idols beside God is equivalent to being unappreciative
of God and not valuing Him as He should be valued.
[22:73] O people, here is a parable that you must
ponder carefully: the idols you set up beside GOD can never create
a fly, even if they banded together to do so. Furthermore, if the
fly steals anything from them, they cannot recover it; weak is the
pursuer and the pursued.
[22:74] They do not value GOD as He should be valued.
GOD is the Most Powerful, the Almighty.
Idol-worship not to be taken lightly
God warns us that idol worship is an unforgivable sin if maintained
until death. So God willing we should try not to fall into such
an offense that has grave consequences.
[4:116] GOD does not forgive idol worship (if maintained
until death), and He forgives lesser offenses for whomever He wills.
Anyone who idolizes any idol beside GOD has strayed far astray.
[4:48] GOD does not forgive idolatry, but He forgives
lesser offenses for whomever He wills. Anyone who sets up idols
beside GOD, has forged a horrendous offense.
If we do fall into idol worship by ignorance, we pray that we realize
it before it is too late, and repent for it. Otherwise all our works
might be nullified. God has made this point very clear in His revelations:
[39:65] It has been revealed to you, and to those
before you that if you ever commit idol worship, all your works
will be nullified, and
you will be with the losers.
Even the messengers of God are not exempt from this rule:
[6:88] Such is GOD's guidance, with which He guides
whomever He chooses from among His servants. Had any of them fallen
into idolatry, their works would have been nullified.
God in His infinite mercy mathematically coded the First Commandment,
the correct statement of faith for us to declare. The Arabic statement
“La elahe ella Allah” (There is no god beside God) consists of 12
letters. These Arabic letters (written and read from right to left)
in the order of occurrence are:
ل ا ا ل ہ ا ل ا ا ل ل ہ
The English equivalent of these letters are
L, A, E, L, H, E, L, A, A, L, L, H
noting that A and E in Arabic are the same letter. The gematrical
(abjad) values of these letters (numerical values associated with
them) are 30, 1, 1, 30, 5, 1, 30, 1, 1, 30, 30 and 5. Now let us
write these numbers together (concatenate) to produce one single
number. The resultant 17-digit number is a multiple of 19:
30113051301130305 = 19 x 1584897436901595
Thus God has put His stamp on this statement clearly indicating
to us this is the correct statement. This amazing code leaves no
doubt that “There is no god beside God” (in Arabic, La elahe ella
Allah) cannot be compromised. Any addition to this
statement nullifies the mathematical code and God’s approval.
