Quran, Hadith, and Islam by Dr. Rashad Khalifa, Ph.D. Copyright © Islamic Productions [A note on the format of this publication: In the original, all quotes from the Quran are shown in Arabic, and then translated into English. Often crucial sections in the Arabic have been highlighted. Unfortunately, in- clusion of the Arabic images would increase the size of this document significantly and take a long time to load. The original book can be ordered from: Masjid Tucson, P.O. Box 43476, Tucson, AZ 85733-3476 or from Amazon.com] Preface After more than 12 years of computerized research of Quran, PHYSICAL EVIDENCE was discovered proving that Quran is indeed the infallible word of God. This discovery became very popular among the Muslim masses throughout the world, and summaries of the work were printed and distributed by the millions. My personal popularity soared along with this most exciting, and most humbling, discovery. The continued research then unveiled a startling fact; that the ex- tremely popular "Hadith & Sunna" have nothing to do with the prophet Muhammad, and that adherence thereto represents flagrant disobedi- ence of God and His final prophet (Quran 6:112 & 25:31). This finding contradicts the beliefs of Muslim masses everywhere. Consequently, my personal popularity, and even the popularity of the Quran's miracle, plunged to the point of endangering my life and reputa- tion. As it turned out, telling the Muslims that "Hadith & Sunna" are Satanic inventions is the same as telling the Christians that Jesus is not the son of God. 2
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 3
Since the recognition of "Hadith & Sunna" as Satanic innovations is supported by PHYSICAL EVIDENCE, all freethinking people will accept the findings reported in this book. For such people, the results include a totally new sense of salvation, and full awareness that the Muslim masses have fallen victim to Satan's schemes. Rashad Khalifa August 19, 1982 NO SALVATION WITHOUT OBEYING THE MESSENGER "Say (O Muhammad), 'If you love God, then follow me. God will then love you, and forgive your sins; God is forgiver, merciful.' Say, 'Obey God and the messenger.' If they turn away, then God loves not the disbe- lievers." (3:3132) "You shall observe Salat & Zakat, and obey the messenger, that you may attain mercy." (24:56) "Anyone who disobeys God and His messenger will abide in the fire of hell forever." (72:23) Since all the messengers delivered one and the same message, namely, "YOU SHALL NOT WORSHIP EXCEPT GOD," disobeying them consti- tutes disbelief, or idolworship. WHEN DELIVERING GOD'S MESSAGES, messengers do not speak on their own initiative. "A prophet like me, will the Lord, your God, raise up for you from among your own kinsmen; to him you shall listen." (Moses in Deutero- nomy 18:15) "I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kinsmen, and will put my words into his mouth; he shall tell them all that I com- mand him. If any man will not listen to my words which he speaks in my name, I myself will make him answer for it." (Deuteronomy 18:18-19) 3
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 4
"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own initiative, but the Fath- er abiding in me does His works." (Gospel of John 14:10) "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own initiative, but whatever he hears, he will speak; and he will disclose to you what is to come." (John 16:13) "Obeying the Messenger is obeying God." (Quran 4:80) "and he (Muhammad) does not speak on his own initiative." (53:3) MUHAMMAD REPRESENTED BY QURAN ALONE "We sent down to you THIS BOOK truthfully, confirming all previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall judge among them accord- ing to what is sent down from God (this book), and do not follow their wishes if they deviate from the truth… . You shall judge among them ac- cording to what is send down from God (this book); do not follow their wishes, and BEWARE lest they divert you from that which is sent down to you from God (this book)… . Would they seek the laws of ignorance? WHO IS BETTER THAN GOD as a lawmaker, for those who sincerely believe?" (Quran 5:48-50) MUHAMMAD FORBIDDEN FROM UTTERING ANY RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTIONS OTHER THAN QURAN "This (Quran) is the utterance of an honorable messenger. It is not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe. Nor is it the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed. A revelation from the Lord of the universe. HAD HE EVER UTTERED ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS UTTERANCES (attributed to us), we would have punished him severely, then we would have stopped the revelation to him (fired him). None of you could have protected him against us." (69:40-47) These very clear verses teach us that Muhammad was forbidden from ut- tering any religious teachings beside Quran. The strength of the Arabic 4
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 5
text cannot be fully translated to English. But the powerful expressions leave no doubt whatsoever that the Prophet's sole function was to "DELIVER" Quran, the whole Quran, and NOTHING but Quran. MUHAMMAD ORDERED NEVER TO DEVIATE FROM QURAN. DEVIATION MEANT SEVERE PUNISHMENT "They almost diverted you (O Muhammad) from our revelations to you; they wanted you to fabricate something else to consider you a friend. If it were not that we strengthened you, you almost leaned to- wards them a little bit. Had you done it, we would have doubled the punishment for you in this life, and after death; no one could have pro- tected you against us." (17:73-75) In setting the example for us, the Prophet was ordered to adhere strictly to God's revelations to him, specifically identified in 5:48-50 (Page 3) as Quran. The slightest deviation from Quran (see verse 74 above) incurs severe retribution. Muhammad ordered to deliver QURAN ALONE, without the least al- teration, and never to "fabricate" anything else: "When our verses are recited for them, those who do not expect to meet us would say, 'Bring a Quran other than this, or change it.' Say (O Muhammad), 'I cannot change it on my own initiative. I simply follow what is revealed to me. I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the retribution of a terrible day.' … Who is more wicked than one who invents lies about God, or rejects His revelations? The guilty never succeed. Yet, they idol- ize beside God those who possess no power to harm them or benefit them, and say, 'These are our intercessors with God.' … such is idolwor- ship." (10:1518) ONE GOD / ONE SOURCE Our Almighty Creator commands that QURAN, specifically QURAN, SHALL BE THE ONLY SOURCE of religious teachings. Furthermore, we are told that THE ACCEPTANCE OF ANY OTHER SOURCES for religious guidance equals the setting up of OTHER GODS BESIDE GOD: 5
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 6
"Say (O Muhammad), 'Whose testimony is greater?' Say, 'God is the wit- ness between me and you that THIS QURAN was given to me to preach it to you, and to whomever it reaches.' However, you certainly bear wit- ness that you set up other gods beside God (by upholding other sources beside Quran). Say, 'I will never do what you are doing; I disown your idolworship.'" (6:19) This profound verse, which happens to be verse [19] of Sura 6, enjoins the believers from upholding or following ANY OTHER SOURCE BESIDE QURAN, and that doing this is equivalent to the setting up of other gods beside God. ONE GOD / ONE SOURCE In the strictest possible language, we are commanded to uphold Qur- an, the whole Quran, and nothing but Quran. Repeatedly, we are commanded to uphold Quran as the ONLY SOURCE OF RELIGIOUS GUIDANCE. Again and again, we are reminded that the following of ANY OTHER SOURCE BESIDE QURAN EQUALS THE SETTING UP OF OTHER GODS BESIDE GOD. Verses 22 through 38 of Sura 17 represent some of the most important commandments in Quran. Immediately following these verses we find the verse shown below: "This is some of the wisdom revealed to you (in this Quran), and YOU SHALL NOT SET UP ANY OTHER GOD BESIDE GOD (by following any other source beside Quran). Otherwise, you will be thrown into hell, blamed and debased." (17:39) Despite all these clear commandments and extremely strict injunctions, why do the followers of Hadith & Sunna fail to uphold the Quran alone? See the answer on Page 9. 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 6
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 7
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." (17:4546) 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 & justice." (6:115) THE CONSEQUENCE OF NOT BELIEVING GOD As shown on Page 10, 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 (see pages 7 & 8). Now, you have the total freedom to decide to believe God, or to reject His statements, and ignore His commandments, provided you are will- ing (or unwilling) to accept the consequences. You agree, no doubt, that refusing to believe God is a very serious of- fense. 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." (7:40) 7
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 8
Thus, it is A PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY for those who refuse to be- lieve 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 socalled 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 could never enter it in the past, present, or future; a revelation from the most wise, the most praised." (41:41-42) 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, & 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 unanim- ously recognized as conjecture. "Shall I seek OTHER THAN GOD as a source of law, when He has re- vealed 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." (6:114-116) "They insist upon following conjecture, when the guidance is given to them herein from their Lord." (53:23) OBEYING THE MESSENGER IS CONDITIONED 8
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 9
Obeying the messenger is absolute only as far as the Quranic revela- tions are concerned. Obeying the messenger is in upholding Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but Quran. Obedience is strictly ON CONDITION THAT the source is God through the messenger, and not the messenger who is no more than a human being, subject to errors. As shown in the verse below, the messenger as a man is to be obeyed ONLY if he is right: "O prophet, if the believing women come to you and pledge that they will not idolize anything beside God, nor steal, nor commit adultery, nor kill their children, nor produce any falsehood, nor disobey you WHEN YOU ARE RIGHT, you shall accept their pledge, and ask God to forgive them." (60:12) Thus, the condition is evident that Muhammad the man, unlike Muhammad the messenger, shall be obeyed ONLY IF HE IS RIGHT. OBEYING THE MESSENGER IS CONDITIONED The Quran emphasizes that obedience is absolute when the source is God, while the personal opinion of the messenger may be detrimental to him and/or to those who follow his personal opinions: "Anything good that happens to you (O Muhammad) is from God. And anything bad that happens to you is from you. We have sent you as a messenger to the people, and God suffices as a witness. Whoever obeys the messenger is obeying God. As for those who turn away, we did not send you as their guardian." (4:79-80) Thus, the personal opinion of Muhammad may be bad, or may cause bad things to happen. On the other hand, Muhammad the messenger ut- ters THE WORDS OF GOD, i.e., the Quran, and must be obeyed abso- lutely. For whoever obeys the messenger is obeying God, and we are to obey the commandments of God, not the commandments of men. OBEYING THE MESSENGER IS CONDITIONED The Quran gives numerous examples that we must obey what Muhammad uttered as a messenger of God, and NOT NECESSARILY what he uttered as a man. As a messenger, he uttered Quran, and noth- ing but Quran. Furthermore, the Quran teaches that Muhammad the man actually committed serious errors. Thus, in the verse shown below we see that 9
Quran , Hadith and Islam - page 10
God wished to establish a law whereby a man can marry the divorced wife of his adopted son. Muhammad was to be our example. However, this was contrary to the traditions of Arabia, and the Prophet actually "feared the people instead of fearing God." "You said to the one blessed by God and blessed by you, 'Do not di- vorce your wife, and observe God.' Thus, you hid in yourself what God wanted to declare, and you feared the people when God is the one you should fear. Then, when Zeid (Muhammad's adopted son) finally di- vorced her, we had you marry her. This was done to show that the be- lieving men are allowed to marry the divorced wives of their adopted sons. The commands of God shall be carried out." (33:37) OBEYING THE MESSENGER IS CONDITIONED One compete Sura illustrates the fact that we are to obey Muhammad ONLY in his Quranic utterances, and NOT in his personal utterances or personal behavior. This rules out the socalled "Hadith" and the socalled "Sunna" as legitimate sources of religious guidance. The Sura is entitled "'Abasa = He Frowned", and narrates an incident where Muhammad ignored a poor blind man, and gave his full attention to a rich man: "He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away, when the blind man came to him. How do you know; he may be saved? Or, he may heed the message and benefit from such heeding. As for the rich man, you (Muhammad) gave him your attention. Even though you cannot guaran- tee his salvation. But the one who came to you seeking salvation, and sincerely reverent, you disregarded him. Indeed, THIS IS A REMINDER, for those who choose to remember." (80:1-12) THE IDOLIZATION OF MUHAMMAD Refusing to believe God in His repeated assertions that the QURAN IS COMPLETE, PERFECT, & SHALL BE THE ONLY SOURCE of religious guidance, and following the conjecture known as Hadith & Sunna consti- tutes deification of the prophet Muhammad against his will. "Say (O Muhammad), 'If the ocean were ink for the words of my Lord, the ocean would have run out before my Lord runs out of words, even if we supplied twice as much ink.' Say (O Muhammad), 'I am no more than a human being like you. It has been revealed to me that your God is ONE GOD. Thus, anyone who looks forward to meeting his Lord shall 10
