The Truth About the Jinn: Introduction

INTRODUCTION

6.Surah Al-‘An`ām (Verse 128)
وَيَوْمَ يَحْشُرُهُمْ جَمِيعًا يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ قَدِ اسْتَكْثَرْتُم مِّنَ الْإِنسِۖ وَقَالَ أَوْلِيَاؤُهُم مِّنَ الْإِنسِ رَبَّنَا اسْتَمْتَعَ بَعْضُنَا بِبَعْضٍ وَبَلَغْنَا أَجَلَنَا الَّذِي أَجَّلْتَ لَنَاۚ قَالَ النَّارُ مَثْوَاكُمْ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ حَكِيمٌ عَلِيمٌ

And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day when He will gather them together [and say], “O company of jinn, you have [misled] many of mankind.” And their allies among mankind will say, “Our Lord, some of us made use of others, and we have [now] reached our term which You appointed for us.” He will say,The Fire is your residence,wherein you will abide eternally, except for what Allah wills. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing.

The Mass Deception

Those who believe that the Jinn are something other than human, claim that the Jinn are in fact a completely different species of creature than the human being, although it does have free will and is a higher intelligence in comparison to creatures such as animals, insects, and cattle, just like humans. They are also expected to obey the Qur’an which was obviously designed for Human application. This is plain and simply incorrect, and it is a result of a massive campaign of deception that has been ongoing for thousands of years.

The Jinn are humans. They are not fairies, spirits, ghosts, reptilian men, Annunaki, XMEN, or anything else, other than human beings. The Jinn cannot fly. They do not know our thoughts. They do not have any exclusive ability to communicate with man using telepathy. They do not live in our minds, other planets, or other dimensions. These are all lies.

However, most people believe otherwise and it is due to the lack of reflection on the ayats of Qur’an. Rather, they rely upon the Jinn to tell them who the Jinn are. There has never been a scholar (that I am aware of) amongst the sects who has openly challenged or questioned the popular interpretation of the learned ‘ulema. All praise is due to Allah who have us an intellect for reflection, eyes and ears which we use to investigate, and a mouth to speak out against falsehood.

There isn’t a single ayat of Qur’an that shows a contradiction between Insān, Ins, Nas and Bashar. Moreover, we do not find in the Qur’an a single ayat that shows a contradiction between Jānn, Jinn, Jinnah and Bashar. The only contradictions we find are in the comparisons between these groups:

1). Angel (Malak) vs. Bashar (Human): An Angel is not a Human, nor vice versa.

2). Angel (Malak) vs. Jinn (Iblisite): An Angel is not a Jinn, nor vice versa

3). Angel (Malak) vs. Ins (Adamite): Adamites are not Angels, nor vice versa

4). Ins (Adamites) vs. Jinn (Iblisite): Adamites are not Iblisites, nor vice versa

5). All Ins (Adamites) are Bashar (Human), but not all Bashar (Humans) are Adamites

6). All Jinn (Iblisites) are Bashar (Human), but not all Bashar (Human)are Jinn

All of this is proven in Qur’an. I not only intend to debunk the myth of the flying, invisible, alien, reptilian, Annunaki Jinn, but I also intend to demonstrate who they really are, who they have always been, and why they do not want you to know who they are, Allah Willing. To do this, I draw upon the Qur’an as the primary source, as well as historical references. I will not use History to interpret the Qur’an, because the Qur’an contains its own built in tafseer (interpretation). I will use the Qur’an to explain clearly what and who the Jinn are, as well as their activities globally to destroy the Ummah and the world.

Allah is the Best of Protectors!

Who are the Jinn? (QUICK REFERENCE)

In the Name of the Most Gracious, Most Merciful, Allah…

This is a list of references that prove the humanity of the Jinn and refutes the deception of fiery spirit entities who are invisible and can communicate through telepathy. The Jinn are best identified by matching the traits listed in the Qur’an to the people we see today.

NOTE: JINN ARE NOT ALL EVIL. AMONG THEM ARE GOOD PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUBMITTED TO ALLAH.

72.Surah Al-Jinn (Verse 11)
وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الصَّالِحُونَ وَمِنَّا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَۖ كُنَّا طَرَائِقَ قِدَدًا

And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways.

Jinn in the Qur’an (Quick Reference)

Jinn and Nasi points to ponder:

(bashīran) Herald: Surah 2:119, 5:19, 7:188, 11:2, 12:96, 34:28, 35:24, 41:4

Herald: A person who carries or proclaims important news; a messenger.

(mubashirātin) one who heralds/one who bears good news: Surah 30:46

They are people bringing good news (bashru: Surah 2:97) as directed by Allah (Surah 2:25, 2:119, 2:213); they are still humans.

Good news: (bashru)
One who brings good news: (mubashiratin)
Bringer of good news: (bashiran)

Muhammad (pbuh) was given the Quran as good news (bushra) to the believers. Surah 2:97

Humans (bashar) are the good creation of Allah; all in the heavens and the earth are made subject to us by the leave of Allah. He altered us and made us good:

“We created them, and We strengthened their joints; and, when We will, We shall exchange their likes.” Surah 76:28

“Say: Journey in the land, then behold how He originated creation; then Allah causes the second growth to grow; Allah is powerful over everything,” Surah 29:19-20

“Believers, guard yourselves and your families against a Fire whose fuel is Nasi and stones (waalhijaratu), and over which are harsh, terrible angels who disobey not God in what He commands them and do what they are commanded.” Surah 66:6

The only human beings made of stone are among the fossils of prehistoric man, still found today.

“And if you do not — and you will not — then fear the Fire, whose fuel is nasi and stones (waalhijaratu), prepared for unbelievers.” Surah 2:24

“They say, ‘What, when we are bones and broken bits, shall we really be raised up again in a new creation?’

Say: ‘Let you be stones (hijaratan), or iron, or some creation yet more monstrous in your minds!’ Then they will say, ‘Who will bring us back?’ Say: ‘He who originated you the first time.’ Then they will shake their heads at thee, and they will say, ‘When will it be?’ Say: ‘It is possible that it may be nigh, on the day when He will call you, and you will answer praising Him, and you will think you have but tarried a little.’” Surah 17:49-52

(Continued…)

Subjected (sakhara): Surah 13:2, 14:32-33, 16:12-14, 21:79, 22:36-37, 22:65, 29:61, 31:20, 31:29, 35:13, 38:18, 38:36, 39:5, 43:13, 45:12-13, 67:15, 69:7

“It is He who made the earth subjected to you; therefore walk in its tracts, and eat of His provision; to Him is the Uprising.” Surah 67:15

“It is He who subjected to you the sea, that you may eat of it fresh flesh, and bring forth out of it ornaments for you to wear; and thou mayest see the ships cleaving through it; and that you may seek of His bounty, and so haply you will be thankful.” Surah 16:14

“Hast thou not seen how that God has subjected to you all that is in the earth and the ships to run upon the sea at His commandment, and He holds back heaven lest it should fall upon the earth, save by His leave? Surely God is All-gentle to men, All-compassionate.” Surah 22:65

The Jinn are Gentiles; the human race created before Adam (pbuh). Allah gives description of them in the Quran:

Jinn as Synapsida: Surah 27:10-12, 7:107, 26:32, 20:20

“Cast down thy staff.’ And when he saw it quivering like a serpent (jānnun) he turned about, retreating, and turned not back. ‘Moses, fear not; surely the Envoys do not fear in My presence, save him who has done evil, then; after evil, has changed into good; All-forgiving am I, All-compassionate. ” Surah 27:10

Jinn are Christians – Byzantines – who accepted the Quran: Surah 2:62, 5:69, 22:17, 37:58, 72:1-18

Only Roman Catholic and Orthodox Greeks call Allah ‘Heavenly Father’. Surah 37:158

The Jinn are descended from the Sabines – the primogenitors of the Romans. Just as the Birds are descended from Canaanites – the primogenitors of the Phoenicians/Greeks.

Look them up. You will still find the two-headed bird of the Byzantine Empire in Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches. (As well as used by the Yahud who fled Russia and settled in America.)

Jinn are Yahudians – Persians – who accepted the Quran: Surah 2:102, 22:17, 46:29-30

The Persians are the offspring of the mixing of Bani Israel with the Jinn around the Caucasus Mountains. Reread the parable of Dhul-Qarnain, and look to the mountain range near the Caspian Sea where the Wall of Derbent still stands. These are the Babylonian Magi who infiltrated the Bani Israel and taught them Kabbalah – the Tree of Life used to tempt Adam (pbuh).

Look up Caucasian origins, Zoroastrian Magi, Dhul-Qarnain and the Wall of Derbent, and origins of Kabbalah and the sigil ‘YHWH’.

Jews and Christians are polytheists: Surah 2:105, 2:120, 2:135, 2:140, 3:67, 3:95, 3:151, 3:186, 5:82, 6:106, 6:137, 6:161, 9:31-33, 10:105, 16:120, 22:17, 98:1-6

Jinn are foreigners among Nasi: Surah 6:128-131, 22:17, 34:12-13, 7:38, 7:179

‘Ajam’ – Foreigner/Barbarian: Surah 16:103, 41:44, 26:198

Roman-Persian wars: Surah 30:2-4, 105:1-5

It is the nature of Gentiles to embrace polytheism. We see this in the pagan beliefs upheld throughout history.

The Quran is first Book sent for Jinn: Surah 2:151, 3:164, 3:186, 3:199, 4:47, 4:113, 4:131, 4:136, 5:5, 5:48, 6:156-157, 10:94, 13:38, 28:52, 29:48, 34:40-44, 41:44, 42:52, 43:19-21, 46:29-32, 57:16, 62:2, 72:1-18

“We have not given them any Books to study, nor have We sent them before thee any warner.” Surah 34:44

Jinn created before Nasi of a released, scorching fire (Big Bang intense heat): Surah 15:27, 55:15
“And He created (Wakhalaqa) the jinn of (aljanna min) release (marijin) of fire (min narin).” Surah 55:15

“and the jinn created We before of fire scorching (alssamoomi).” Surah 15:27

Let forth/release (maraja): Surah 25:53, 55:19

“He released (Maraja) the two seas that meet together,” Surah 55:19

“And it is He who released (maraja) the two seas, this one Sweet, grateful to taste, and this salt, bitter to the tongue, and He set between them a barrier, and a ban forbidden.” Surah 25:53

The Nasi are the ‘Hebrew’ tribe, but without the Jewish connotation. They were the primogenitors for the off-shoots of Bani Israel and other semitic nations today. Remember: Allah revealed to the Tribes after they scattered in the earth. Surah 2:136, 3:84, 4:163, 7:160

“Hast thou not seen how that Allah sends down out of heaven water, and therewith We bring forth fruits of diverse hues? And among (wamina) the mountains (aljibali) streak (judadun) white (beedun) and donkey-red (wahumrun), of diverse hues, and raven (wagharabeebu) black (soodun). And among (wamina) men (alnnasi), and beasts (waalddawabbi) and cattle (waal-anAAami) — diverse are their hues. Even so only those of His servants fear Allah who have knowledge; surely Allah is All-mighty, All-forgiving.” Surah 35:27-28

The word for Nasi is still found in the Bible, which is why most translate (khalif) as ‘viceroy’ instead of ‘successor’;

Hebrew ‘nasi’ נָשִׂיא: president, prince, ruler
Lev. 4:22, Eze. 44:2-18, Ezra 1:8

The Islamist scholars strive to continue to uphold additions of man from the previous Books – as upheld by their hadith written by those who infiltrated the deen.

By upholding only the ‘Hebrew’ lineage (ie: The Jews) are the real ‘man’, they keep those not of their ‘ancestry’ as below man. But the joke is on them: The seed of Adam (pbuh) has spread into the bloodlines of the Gentiles.

Proof:
Allah states clearly Nasi are made from the seed of another people.

“Thy Lord is All-sufficient, Merciful. If He will, He can put you away, and leave after you, to succeed you (wayastakhlif), what He will, as He produced you from the seed (dhurriyyati) of another (ākharīna) people (qawmin).” Surah 6:133

He even gives details how Adam (pbuh) was made.

“He is the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, the All-mighty, the All-compassionate, Who has created all things well. And He originated the creation of humans (al-insani) of clay (min teenin), then He fashioned his descendant (naslahu) of an extraction (sulalatin) of low (maheenin) water (ma-in), then He shaped (sawwahu) him, and breathed His spirit (roohihi) in him. And He appointed for you hearing, and sight, and hearts; little thanks you show.” Surah 32:6-9

There is only one Nasi spoken of in the Quran who was shaped and had Allah’s ruh breathed into him – Adam (pbuh): Surah 15:29, 32:9, 38:72

If all human beings sprung from the joining of one couple, Allah would not make distinction between the bloodline of the Prophets (pbut), as we all would be from the seed of Adam (pbuh).

(dhurriyyatī) offspring: Surah 2:124, 2:128, 2:266, 3:34, 3:36, 3:38, 4:9, 6:84, 6:87, 6:133, 7:172, 7:173, 10:83, 13:38, 14:37, 14:40, 17:3, 17:62, 18:50, 19:58, 29:27, 36:41, 37:77, 37:113, 46:15, 52:21, 57:26

Seed of Adam: Surah 3:33, 6:83-87, 7:172, 17:2-3, 19:58. 57:26

“We have honoured the Children of Adam and carried them on land and sea, and provided them with good things, and preferred them greatly over many of those We created.” Surah 17:70

“That is Our argument, which We bestowed upon Abraham as against his people. We raise up in degrees whom We will; surely thy Lord is All-wise, All-knowing.

And We gave to him Isaac and Jacob — each one We guided, And Noah We guided before; and of his seed (dhurriyyatihi) David and Solomon, Job and Joseph, Moses and Aaron — even so We recompense the good-doers — Zachariah and John, Isa and Elias; each was of the righteous; Ishmael and Elisha, Jonah and Lot – each one We preferred above all beings; and of their fathers, and of their seed (wadhurriyyātihim), and of their brethren (wa-ikh’wānihim); and We elected them, and We guided them to a straight path.” Surah 6:83-87

“And We gave Moses the Book, and made it a guidance to the Children of Israel: ‘Take not unto yourselves any guardian apart from Me.’ The seed (dhurriyyata) of those We bore with Noah; he was a thankful servant.” Surah 17:2-3

“These are they whom God has blessed among the Prophets of the seed (dhurriyyati) of Adam, and of those We bore with Noah, and of the seed (dhurriyyati) of Abraham and Israel, and of those We guided and chose. When the signs of the All-merciful were recited to them, they fell down prostrate, weeping.” Surah 19:58

“And We sent Noah, and Abraham, and We appointed the Prophecy and the Book to be among their seed (dhurriyyatihimā); and some of them are guided, and many of them are ungodly.” Surah 57:26

Clear proof the creation of Homo-Sapien began before Adam, but was perfected – made good – by Allah by evolving (masnoonin – root: sunnah/way) Adam (pbuh).

Nasi created of cracked clay (salsalin) from mud (hama-in) altered (masnoonin – root: sunnah/way): Surah 15:26, 15:28, 15:33, 55:14

There were white people, black people, and red people before Adam (pbuh). But we are all Nasi now, as the Homo-Sapien lineage is now dominant; it is in everyone’s DNA. The only remnant of the Jinn lies in those who have Caucasian DNA.

August 23, 201
Among those who have Caucasian DNA are the Bedouins. Look it up for scientific evidence, but first let us look to the Quran:

The Quran was sent in the language of the people: Arabic. Surah 12:2, 20:113, 41:3, 41:44, 42:7, 43:3

Muhammad was raised from among his own people: Surah 2:143, 2:151, 3:164, 9:128, 23:32 (Allah does not change His way), 62:2

“Thus We appointed YOU a midmost nation that YOU might be witnesses to THE NASI (alnnasi), and that THE MESSENGER might be a witness to YOU; and We did not appoint the direction thou wast facing, except that We might know who followed the Messenger from him who turned on his heels — though it were a grave thing save for those whom God has guided; but God would never leave your faith to waste – truly, God is All-gentle with the people, All-compassionate.” Surah 2:143

“as also We have sent among you, of yourselves, a Messenger, to recite Our signs to you and to purify you, and to teach you the Book and the Wisdom, and TO TEACH YOU THAT YOU KNEW NOT.” Surah 2:151

“It is He who has raised up from among the unlettered (al-ommiyyeena) a Messenger FROM AMONG THEM, to recite His signs to them and to purify them, and to teach them the Book and the Wisdom, though before that they were in manifest error,” Surah 62:2

Muhammad was a Messenger from among the unlettered – those without knowledge of the Book. Surah 2:78, 3:20, 3:75, 7:157-158, 62:2

The Quran was the first Book sent to the Jinn; they were given no Book prior to the Quran.

The Quran was sent for all nations, all beings. Surah 3:108, 6:90, 12:104, 21:107, 25:1, 38:87, 68:52, 81:27, 34:28, 7:158, 33:40, 4:170, 47:33, 4:80, 61:9, 21:107, 4:79-80

The Quran speaks to the Nasi and Jinn in the time of Muhammad (pbuh), reminding them of the benefits given to them by Allah. But Allah warns throughout He will bequeath it to a people who would uphold it should they turn away. Surah 9:39, 11:57, 21:11, 44:28, 47:38

“But if you turn your backs, I have delivered to you that I was sent with unto you, and my Lord will make a people other than you successors; you will not hurt Him anything. My Lord is Guardian over everything.'” Surah 11:57

And He has.

Muhammad (pbuh) was a Jinn – a Gentile – with blood-ties to the Nasi – the Hebrew line of Adam (pbuh).

If you can prove me wrong, I look forward to hearing from you.
If not, insha’Allah, you will be able to use this knowledge – given to me by Allah as all power is due to Him – in your debate.

May Allah increase the believers in knowledge.

Peace.

Credit goes to a man named ‘Dāhikatun Rajilun’ who sent this to me. Verify it for yourself.

TO ALLAH BELONGS ALL KNOWLEDGE.

20120101-195601.jpg

Was the Prophet Muhammad Sunni or Shi’a?

In the Name of the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, Allah

6:126 And this is the path of your Lord, [leading] straight. We have detailed the verses for a people who remember.

6:153 And, [moreover], this is My path, which is straight, so follow it; and do not follow [other] ways, for you will be separated from His way. This has He instructed you that you may become righteous.

7:16 [Satan] said, “Because You have put me in error, I will surely sit in wait for them on Your straight path.

The Straight Path is the Qur’an, the Original Torah, and the Gospel. Satan / Shaytan has vowed to block all roads leading to the word of Allah. He has successfully done so, as almost all Muslims who accept the religion called Islam do so at the hands of the Shiya’an (religions and religious sects), the Sunnis and Shi’ites, just as most of those who accepted the teachings of the Scripture (Torah and Gospel) were diverted away from true deen towards the Jewish and Christian religions and sects.

Despite having been given the Book and being sent messenger after messenger, all upholding the same book, the followers of these prophets were repeatedly and systematically lead astray from the true deen towards various religions. This is a historical fact attested to in the Qur’an. The effects of religion on the people is mass confusion. Take a simple issue of wudhu (ablution). Allah describes the process as follows:

5:3 O you who have believed, when you rise to ‘As-Sol-laa’…

1). …wash your faces

2). …and your forearms to the elbows

3). …and wipe over your heads

4). …and your feet to the ankles.

And if you are in a state of janabah (avoidance due to sexual contact), then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you, but He intends to purify you and complete His favor upon you that you may be grateful.

Something as simple as this can become a very complex issue among Hadithists. Questions such as how many times to wash the face and elbows, or whether or not it includes washing out the mouth, the nose, and the ears, the back of the neck, whether or not it can be done while wearing the socks, etc., despite the clarity of the Qur’anic instructions. If people just did as instructed, the confusion would disappear.

Among the Hadithist-religions there can exist countless rulings and opinions from countless clergy, based upon countless books of hadith. Even more disturbing is that the four Sunni schools that exist today are not the only schools of thought in existence, but rather they are the only “recognized” schools amongst the Sunnis.

There are also the Shi’ite Schools which are based upon a completely different collection of hadith, and opinions of a different set of clergy. As you may have guessed, all of these are completely unrecognized by one another. The only recognition I am aware of one sect by another is by the Sunni (formerly Shi’a – Ismaili/Fatimid) Al-Azhar University in Egypt which considers the “Ja’fari school” (based upon the teachings of the 6th Imam, Ja’far As-Sadiq) a fifth school of Islam.

Deen (System) & Millat (Code) vs. Religion

I would like to shift the focus of the discussion to the difference between ‘Deen’ (Way of life) and Religion. There exist today the ‘Deen of Islam’, which is the System and Order of Allah as promoted in Qur’an, and there is the ‘Religion called Islam’, which is promoted by the Hadithists.

Contrary to popular belief, the concept of religion is condemned in the Qur’an, but many Muslims are unaware of this fact due to a misunderstanding of the Arabic language or because of a reliance upon translations of Qur’an and hadith as sources of guidance. Abraham, the founder of Islam, was not a religious man, but rather a man who lived an upright life, inclined towards truth (Haneef), not static dogma, and who lived according to code (Millat) of Islam and upheld its commitments.

22:78 And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the system (deen) any difficulty. [It is] the code of conduct (Millat) of your father, Abraham. He named you “Muslims” before and in this, so that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So uphold the commitments and contribute towards zakah (purification) and hold fast to Allah . He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper.

2:130 And who would be averse to the code (Millat) of Abraham except one who makes a fool of himself. And We had chosen him in this world, and indeed he, in the Hereafter, will be among the righteous.

The leadership of these religions mistakenly, carelessly, and in my opinion, intentionally use the word deen and religion interchangeably in order to cause confusion.

When approached by the people of religion, namely Christians, Jews, and Polytheists, the Prophet was instructed as follows:

2:135 They say, “Be Jews or Christians, you will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the code (Millat) of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists.

Note: Notice Allah calls the Jews and Christians Polytheists while the world considers them Monotheists

Note: Here, Allah shows the difference between religion (man-made dogma/ritual worship of a god/superstition, i.e., Christianity, Judaism, & Polytheism) and Millat (following a code of conduct and action prescribed by Allah Alone and seeking truth).

Religions focus on worship, while the deen focuses on belief in Allah (Iman) and deeds that reform self and society (As-Salihaat):

21:94 So whoever engages in acts of reform (ya’mal min As-Salihaat) while he is a believer – no denial will there be for his effort, and indeed We, of it, are recorders.

Righteousness is about deeds, not worship

The definition of Righteousness (Al-Birr) in Islam is not based upon dogma, worship, or rituals, or superstition. Rather, it is based deeds of righteousness, reform and belief in the truth:

2:177 Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west (which is reference to the direction of prayer), but [true] righteousness is…

1). One who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets…

2). …and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves…

3). …[and who] upholds the commitments and contributes toward zakah…

4). …[those who] fulfill their promise when they promise…

5). …and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle…

Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.

According to the Qur’an, religions are defined as that which results from the people taking the Deen of Allah and dividing it up among themselves, upholding some of the commandments and forsaking some others, each group believing they alone have the sole monopoly on the truth while adhering to only a portion of what was commanded of them, adding to or subtracting from it without confirmation in Allah’s Book:

6:159 Indeed, those who divide their System (deen) and become religions (shiya’an) – you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah; then He will inform them about what they used to do.

The Qur’an makes it crystal clear. The antithesis of ‘Deen’ is ‘Shiya’an’, or religions. According to the Qur’an, Judaism and Christianity are not deen, but rather they are religions (shiya’an) which were adopted by Muslims who went astray:

2:62 Indeed, those who ‘āmanoo’ (became believers) and those who ‘hādoo’ (adopted Judaism), the ‘nasārā’ (Christians) and Sabeans (Some believe they were followers of the Seven Laws of Noah (Noahidism), or the God-Fearers (Gentile followers of Judaic Law)) – whoever believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.

The use of the word ‘Shiya’an’ is not my way of singling out the adherents of the Shi’ite religion (of which I am a former member, as well as a former Sunni) even though the name itself is the same as that of ‘Shiya’an’, except in singular form, meaning religion/religious sect of Ali. At the time that the ayats above were revealed, there was no such thing as a sect of Islam. There were no Sunni or Shi’a Islamic sects. There was only Islam. These ayats are obviously referring to the religions that sprang up out of the past communities of Muslims who abandoned their books and accepted religions in place of the deen. Sectarianism is an attribute of religion, not of deen.

Religions are only practiced by people, while the deen is upheld by all of creation. The sun, moon, stars, trees, animals, and many human beings uphold the deen, but only humans forsake the deen and substitute it with religion. Here, Allah talks about the Muslims who followed Jesus, the Son of Mary, but later started calling themselves Christians under the leadership of Rome and Greece:

5:14 And from those who say, “We are Christians” We took their covenant; but they forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded. So We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do.

The aim of the deceptive religions is to produce a delusion or false sense of having fulfilled one’s commitment to Allah through worship, rituals, blind-following, a belief in superstition, and obedience to a clerical hierarchy. It is expected that one will pass through this life having “worshipped” Allah just enough to gain mercy and enter paradise, having done nothing to reform self or society, nor having a correct belief in Allah. The Qur’an warns against this and exposes the clergy as being the primary conspirators in diverting the masses away from Deen and funneling them into the system of religion. Today, the chances of non-Muslim finding the true Qur’anic Islam is slim without first having to swim through an ocean of religions and sects. This is why most of the people on earth believe Islam to simply be just another world religion.

6:116 And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah . They follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying.

Animosity, Hatred, and Violence: A result of abandoning the Deen for religion

As a result of abandoning the Deen of Islam and “forgetting a portion” of their covenant and forming a religion out of the Deen, the People of the Scripture were cursed with being stripped of their deen and downgraded religious followers, which lead to “animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection”. Where else do we see this taking place? The Muslims who followed Jesus “forgot a portion of what they were reminded”, in other words they neglected a portion of the deen, holding on to some aspects of it, mixing it with the teachings of other religions, and out of this Christianity sprang forth. As a result of them failing to keep their commitment, they were caused to be consumed with sectarian and religious hatred for each other until the Day of Judgment.

Allah illustrates this further here:

6:67 Say, “He is the [one] Able to send upon you affliction from above you or from beneath your feet or to confuse you [so you become] religious sects (shiya’an) and make you taste the violence of one another.” Look how We diversify the signs that they might understand.

It now becomes clear why the Sunnis and the Shi’ites have been locked in battle for over 1400 years. The negative end-result of religion on a people is that they become violent with each other, while themselves caught up in layer upon layer of confusion among themselves. The Christians, Jews, Sunni/Shi’ite Muslims, the Polytheists, and all the sects that exist under these religions are all at war with each other These ayats make it crystal clear that these ‘Shiya’an’ are religious groups, not sects of Islam, because the ‘shiya’an’ are an end-result of dividing up the Islamic System (Deen) or forgetting a portion of the covenant that was established with Allah to uphold the deen, not practice a religion.

“He named you Muslims…”

Again… I would like to emphasize the following.

Allah says

2:130 And who would be averse to the code (Millat) of Abraham except one who makes a fool of himself.

and…

…[It is] the code of conduct (Millat) of your father, Abraham. He named you “Muslims” before and in this…

Sunnis and Shi’ites will openly admit that they are indeed religions, or sects of a religion which go by names other than Islam. One of the signs of the religions is that they call themselves by names other than Islam and Muslim. Examples: Sunni Islam, Shi’i Islam, Shi’ism, Sufism, Ahmediyyism, Ismailism, Zaydi Shi’ism, Salafism, Ahl As-Sunnah, Ahl Al-Hadith, Nation of Islam, Druze, Baha’ism, etc. For some reason, they just can’t call it Islam. Why? Because it isn’t Pure Islam. This should be the biggest clue to anyone with common sense. Religions are always engaged in a nonstop process of splintering. Division is the natural effect of religion on a people.

Allah says:

15:2-3 Perhaps those who disbelieve will wish that they had been Muslims. Let them eat and enjoy themselves and be diverted by [false] hope, for they are going to know.

and…

28:87 And never let them avert you from the verses of Allah after they have been revealed to you. And invite [people] to your Lord. And never be of those who associate others with Allah.

and…

31:6 And of mankind are (they) who trade DIVERTING HADITH to lead into error away from the way of Allah without knowledge, and to take it to themselves in mockery; those will have a degrading torment.

and…

3:99 Say, “O People of the Scripture, why do you avert from the way of Allah those who believe, seeking to make it [seem] deviant, while you are witnesses [to the truth]? And Allah is not unaware of what you do.”

and…

4:160 For wrongdoing on the part of the Jews, We made unlawful for them [certain] good foods which had been lawful to them, and for their averting from the way of Allah many [people]…

and the indictment against the clergy…

9:34 O you who have believed, indeed many of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert [them] from the way of Allah . And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah – give them tidings of a painful punishment.

and yet another warning…

28:87 And let them not divert thee from the revelations of Allah after they have been sent down unto thee; but call (mankind) unto thy Lord, and be not of those who ascribe partners (unto Him).

History repeats

In the Qur’an we can look back at the former communities and see where they went wrong. Despite this, most Muslims do not apply the lessons found in their stories to our day and age. I took the time out to examine some of the ayats dealing with the former communities and I switched some of the wording to see how well it fit in our present example. Here is what I came up with.

2:135 They say, “Be Jews or Christians [so] you will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the code (Millat) of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists.”

became…

They say, “Be Sunni or Shi’ite [so] you will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the code (Millat) of Muhammad, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists.”

And…

2:113 The Jews say “The Christians have nothing [true] to stand on,” and the Christians say, “The Jews have nothing to stand on,” although they [both] recite the Scripture. Thus the polytheists speak the same as their words. But Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.

became…

The Sunnis say “The Shi’ites have nothing [true] to stand on,” and the Shi’ites say, “The Sunnis have nothing to stand on,” although they [both] recite the Scripture. Thus the polytheists speak the same as their words. But Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.

and…

5:68 Say, “O People of the Scripture, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord.” And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.

became…

Say, “O People of the Qur’an, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold what has been revealed to you from your Lord.” And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.

Conclusion

The Deen of Islam is not a religion. It is a way of life. It is based upon commitments to Allah and the covenant which must be fulfilled. The religious factions which have sprung forth as a result of the Muslims forgetting a part of what was reminded to them will forever have their horns locked in battle with one another until the Day of Resurrection. The “religion called Islam” will never be a viable substitute for the Deen of Islam.

3:83 So is it other than the Deen of Allah they desire, while to Him have submitted [all] those within the heavens and earth, willingly or by compulsion, and to Him they will be returned?

3:84 Say, “We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [at peace with] Him.”

3:85 And whoever desires other than Islam as a System (Deen) – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

3:86 How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

The Prophet Muhammad was neither a Sunni nor a Shi’a…

3:68 Indeed, the most worthy of Abraham among the people are those who followed him and this prophet, and those who believe. And Allah is the ally of the believers.

3:102 O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims.

3:20 So if they argue with you, say, “I have submitted myself to Allah, and so have those who follow me.” And say to those who were given the Scripture and to the unlearned in Scripture, “Have you submitted yourselves?” And if they submit, they are rightly guided; but if they turn away – then upon you is only the duty of notification. And Allah is Seeing of [His] servants.

To Allah belongs all knowledge…

Hadithism

Hadithism, stems from the belief that the Qur’an Alone does not suffice as a guide for mankind to travel along the straight path back towards Allah, and that in actuality it requires the Qur’an plus countless volumes of books called hadith, along with various other supplemental sources, just to be able to comprehend the Qur’an and make proper use of it. All Muslims believe in the infinite power, wisdom, and creative ability of Allah, Most High. All Muslims believe that He Alone was capable of constructing all that exists in the heavens and the earth in six days (in other words six phases) without the least bit of help from mankind. Despite this, very few believe Allah to be capable of authoring the most comprehensive guide to living in harmony with the System and Order of Allah in the form of a simple book, written in a clear and concise format, and in a language that convey the message in the most comprehensive way.

Some have adopted an extreme position by claiming that the Qur’an is far too complex for the average mind to make sense of, and that the average laymen is more likely to mislead himself as well as all of the other uneducated masses, so Allah designated an elite class of people who are to be the sole interpreters of the Qur’an while maintaining a complete monopoly over the system employed in the process of interpretation and translation into other languages. The scholars are made into Lords, and serve as the defacto gateway that all must pass through on their way to divine knowledge and wisdom, when in fact it is the clergy who act as nothing but filters of knowledge by determining what is “useful knowledge” and what is not. All interpretations must pass the litmus test of the hadith scholars who are self-appointed “experts on religion” (religion is not the same as deen), their rulings, and opinions. Hadithists are following in the footsteps of the Former Peoples (Jews & Christians).

Allah says:

9.Surah At-Tawbah (Verse 31)
اتَّخَذُوا أَحْبَارَهُمْ وَرُهْبَانَهُمْ أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا إِلَٰهًا وَاحِدًاۖ لَّا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۚ سُبْحَانَهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah, and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to serve one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him.

9.Surah At-Tawbah (Verse 32)
يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللَّهُ إِلَّا أَن يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ

They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.

For this very same reason, it is forbidden that any laymen should even utter the slightest utterance in reference to the meaning of the Qur’an. None should speak on the Qur’an unless they are a member of the elite class, or one of their students. These are the only people who are authorized to speak about the Qur’an. Anyone not belonging to either of the aforementioned groups risks being ostracized in this life as well as going to Hell in the next should he/she happen to misinterpret, mistranslate, misunderstand, express an opinion about, or implement anything found between the pages of the Qur’an without first verifying its correctness with a Board Certified Scholar of Islam.

The Hadithist Sect is comprised of two smaller sub-sects which have renamed themselves according to their sectarian viewpoints, one of which goes by Ahlus Sunnah wa Al-Jama’ah (The People of the Sunnah and the Community / Sunni Islam), and the other by Ash-Shi’atu Ali or Ash-Shi’atu Ahlul Bayt (Supporters of Ali / People of the House (of the Prophet) Shi’i Islam). From there these two sects splinter off into other smaller sects, having only one thing in common between them all, and that is their reliance upon Hadith literature to interpret the Qur’an and to enact laws. Each sect has its own exclusive set of Hadith books which they use for this very purpose.

This, despite the fact that in many places throughout the Qur’an Allah clearly forbids the mixing of other teachings with that of the Qur’an, and commands that the Qur’an be made the sole authority in matters of Deen. Hadithist usually counter this argument with ayats such as 4:59, which commands all Muslims to obey Allah, the Messenger, and those in authority among them:

4.Surah An-Nisā’ (Verse 59)
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْۖ فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِۚ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا

O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.

The Interpretation of “Obey Allah & His Messenger”

For Hadithists, this ayat is interpreted in the following way:

1). Obey Allah = Obey the Qur’an.

2). Obey the Messenger = Obey the Hadith.

3). Obey those in authority (Ulu Al-Amr) among you = Obey the Caliph / Imam / Scholars / Clergy (Ahbār).

4). The common belief among the Hadithists is that the words “those in authority” are used to refer to the elite class, people such as scholars, socio-political leaders, various nobilities, and according to some, even dictators are included among “those in authority”, which is obviously not based upon any Qur’anic injunction, rather it is based upon untrustworthy, man-made collections of hadith.

Those who have accepted the Qur’an Alone as their sole source of guidance in matters pertaining to Deen (Universal System and Order of Allah known simply as Islam (Peace/Submission)) reject the Hadithist interpretation of this ayat, because it is inconsistent with the Qur’an as a whole. When understood from a purely Qur’anic perspective it looks more like this:

1). Obey Allah = Obey the Qur’an

2). Obey the Messenger = Obey the model of the Messenger as defined in the Qur’an, not the example as defined in Hadith or sources other than Qur’an. Therefore, to obey the messenger would mean that one must follow the same QUR’ANIC System of Judgment that was enjoined by Allah UPON ALL PROPHETS and their followers with respect to their authorized religious texts. Never, in the history of mankind has Allah permitted or commanded His servants to seek judgments from sources outside of their revealed texts. We do not find any mention of a Sunnah that is to be followed, nor any mention of a book that is to be used in conjunction with the revealed books of Allah, and that is an undeniable fact based upon the Qur’an itself.

3). Obey those in authority (Ulu Al-Amr) among you = Obedience to those who urge the people towards acts of righteousness and obedience to the divine laws, as detailed for us in the Qur’an. Outside of this, there is no other recognized authority in the Deen of Islam. The same applies to any man-made clerical hierarchies, titles, ranks, or positions that have been authorized by man, but not by the Qur’an.

4). All matters of dispute are to be settled using the Qur’an Alone. We are to submit to the ruling just as the Prophets submitted to it. The words “obey Allah and obey the Messenger” does not mean that there are two separate entities, both of which we must obey in different aspects of Deen. In reality, it means to obey Allah by obeying the instructions detailed in the Qur’an as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, which he delivered word-for-word to mankind without adding anything of his own.

An Example:

Obey Allah and the Messenger summed up in one ayat…

4:127 And they request from you, [O Muhammad], a [legal] ruling concerning women. Say, ” Allah gives you a ruling about them and what has been recited to you in the Book…

1). They came to the Prophet for a ruling…

2). Allah responds with “Say… Allah gives you a ruling about them…”. The ruling came from Allah, not the Messenger…

3). The ruling is revealed as a part of the Qur’an, and made public so that people can see the question and the response.

This theme is repeated in the Qur’an…

“And they ask you about…, Say…”

This is OBEYING ALLAH ==> & <== THE MESSENGER

Islam vs. Taghut

Most people who argue in favor of Hadith using 4:59 never seem to notice the ayat that immediately follows it…

4.Surah An-Nisā’ (Verse 60)
أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ آمَنُوا بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُوا إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ وَقَدْ أُمِرُوا أَن يَكْفُرُوا بِهِ وَيُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُضِلَّهُمْ ضَلَالًا بَعِيدًا

Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray.

When we read 4:59-60 together we see a comparison made between the system proposed by Allah (Islam), and any system devoid of the Qur’anic System of Judgment (Taghut). This alone is enough to tell us that Allah, the Messenger, and those in authority among us all represent the same Qur’anic System. Allah is the source of the legislation, the Messenger delivers the legislation to the people, and those in authority are those who uphold the Pure Qur’anic System, not those who uphold systems based on something other than Qur’an. Those systems are called Taghut and we have been commanded to reject those systems outright, but there is no harm in obeying reasonable laws in society that do not conflict with Qur’an. This is the Sunnah (established way, method, pattern, or system) of Allah that does not change, ever.

Irrefutable Proof

I have yet to see anyone refute the following argument which proves without a doubt that Islam does not sanction blind-following (taqleed) nor the reliance of sources of Law outside of Qur’an:

Most Hadithists do not know that the only Sunnahs mentioned in the Qur’an are the…

1). Sunnah of Allah

2). Sunnah of the former peoples (Al-Awwaleen)

Allah says:

35.Surah Fāţir (Verse 43)
اسْتِكْبَارًا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَكْرَ السَّيِّئِۚ وَلَا يَحِيقُ الْمَكْرُ السَّيِّئُ إِلَّا بِأَهْلِهِۚ فَهَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا سُنَّتَ الْأَوَّلِينَۚ فَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًاۖ وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ اللَّهِ تَحْوِيلًا

[Due to] arrogance in the land and plotting of evil; but the evil plot does not encompass except its own people. Then do they await except the Sunnah of the Former Peoples (Al-Awwaleen)? But you will never find in the Sunnah of Allah any change, and you will never find in the Sunnah of Allah any alteration.

Allah makes it clear that He has an established way or Sunnah which never changes, never deviates, never alters, and that the same end result which was experienced by the former peoples will revisit us if we follow in their footsteps.

9.Surah At-Tawbah (Verse 39)
إِلَّا تَنفِرُوا يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ وَلَا تَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئًاۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

If you do not go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allah is over all things competent.

The Sunnah of Allah towards His Prophets:

33.Surah Al-’Aĥzāb (Verse 38)
مَّا كَانَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ مِنْ حَرَجٍ فِيمَا فَرَضَ اللَّهُ لَهُۖ سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ فِي الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلُۚ وَكَانَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ قَدَرًا مَّقْدُورًا

There is not to be upon the Prophet any discomfort concerning that which Allah has imposed upon him. [This is] the established Sunnah of Allah with those [prophets] who have passed on before. And ever is the command of Allah a destiny decreed.

And also..

3.Surah ‘Āli `Imrān (Verse 79)
مَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤْتِيَهُ اللَّهُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحُكْمَ وَالنُّبُوَّةَ ثُمَّ يَقُولَ لِلنَّاسِ كُونُوا عِبَادًا لِّي مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَلَٰكِن كُونُوا رَبَّانِيِّينَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تُعَلِّمُونَ الْكِتَابَ وَبِمَا كُنتُمْ تَدْرُسُونَ

It is not for a human [prophet] that Allah should give him the Scripture and authority and prophethood and then he would say to the people, “Be servants to me rather than Allah,” but [instead, he would say], “Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied.

New Sunnah, same as the Old Sunnah:

33.Surah Al-’Aĥzāb (Verse 62)
سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ فِي الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلُۖ وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًا

[This is] the established Sunnah of Allah with those who passed on before; and you will not find in the Sunnah of Allah any change.

Therefore, the way that Allah has done in the past will always be the way He will do in the future and there are no exceptions to this rule anywhere in the Heavens or on Earth.

2). Allah sent Prophets/Messengers as warners and bringers of glad tidings and with books by which they and those who followed them were to judge by. The Prophets as well as those who followed them were not permitted to judge by anything other than the revealed book of Allah (Torah, Injeel, Qur’an, etc.). Never in the history were the people commanded to combine the teachings from the book of Allah with either the Sunnah of a Prophet, nor teachings found in sectarian religious texts written by men without the authority from Allah. Allah does not vouch for any book or source of guidance other than His own revealed scriptures. That is a fact.

All Prophets served Allah according the guidelines laid out for them in their holy books and were commanded to judge by the Book and nothing but the Book. Those who followed the Prophets were to do the same and were given revelations in the form of books which contained guidance and instruction for them. This is the Sunnah of Allah and it does not change.

Surah 5:43-50 lays it out clearly for all to see. These are the only ayats one needs to refute the claim of anyone who says Hadith are required to correctly follow the Qur’an. We will examine them one-by-one.

The Torah (Al-Tawrāh)

5:43 But how is it that they come to you for judgement while they have the Torah, in which is the judgement of Allah? Then they turn away, [even] after that; but those are not [in fact] believers.

Note: According to the sects, Christians and Jews will not be allowed to enter Paradise unless they accept Islam, but Allah tells the Jews to continue to refer to their book. Notice, there is no mention of the other books the Jews refer to such as the Talmud. The Jews were condemned in Surah 2:100-101 for doing what many Muslims are doing today, namely combining the teachings of man-made texts with that of the Revealed Book.

5:44 Indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which was guidance and light. The prophets who submitted [to Allah ] judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah , and they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers.

Note: Allah says the Prophets of Israel, the Rabbis and Scholars all judged according to the same book. Why do we not see that they referred to the Sunnah of their Prophets for Judgment? Why does Allah say that anyone who judges by something other than his revealed books are disbelievers if this is the accepted way among our Ummah? Did Allah change His Sunnah?

5:45 And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds is legal retribution. But whoever gives [up his right as] charity, it is an expiation for him. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.

Note: The context here is clearly about the Torah and nothing else. Those among the Jews who judged by something other than the Torah, are not only disbelievers, but also wrongdoers (Zhalimeen).

The Injeel (Gospel)

5:46 And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

Note: Those who follow Jesus, were given the Injeel, which confirmed (not abrogated) the Torah. It contained guidance for proper living and instructions. Did Allah give them another man-made book to go along with the Injeel? No.

5:47 And let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient.

Note: Allah tells the living (at the time) Prophet to tell those who follow the Injeel that they are to seek their judgments “from what Allah has revealed therein” in the Injeel, indicating that not all of the book is from Allah, yet He still allows them to judge by WHAT ALLAH REVEALED in the text. They were not permitted to judge by those parts that did not come from Allah. How were they to know the difference? The following ayats will give us the answer. Allah states that those who did not comply are defiantly disobedient.

The Qur’an (The Reading)

5:48 And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.

Note: Allah revealed the Qur’an confirming the previous scriptures. Therefore, the way to know what came from Allah in those books and what didn’t is by comparing what is written therein to the Qur’an. Allah goes further to say that we are all being tested “by what He has given you”. In other words, texts such as the Talmud, books of Hadith, etc. are a means of testing who is true and who is not. This is confirmed for us in Surah 6:112-114.

5:49 And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away – then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their [own] sins. And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient.

Note: Here, Allah tells the Prophet to be wary of the people and to be careful not to allow himself to be “tempted away from what Allah has revealed to him” by making personal judgments that would be pleasing to them, rather than by referring to Qur’an. This is confirmed in Surah 17:73-74 and in 5:43.

5:50 Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].

Note: Finally, Allah exposes the motives of those who would rather seek judgment from other than what Allah has revealed in His books. They wish to do so, in order to return to the system of judgment of the time of ignorance, prior to Islam.

Conclusion:

This is a solid refutation from the Qur’an itself. Those who insist on relying upon hadith or other sources than Qur’an should know full well what it is they are proposing, which is the System of Taghut, the antithesis of Qur’an.

Is not Allah sufficient for His Servant? And [yet], they threaten you with those [they worship] other than Him. And whoever Allah leaves astray – for him there is no guide. 39:36

Salaam & Allah knows best!
