Those who believe the religionists do not realise that it is wrong to force divisions within God’s way. It is not correct to assume that these changes were made to improve Islam. It is wrong to think that concepts need re-interpretation. We are just not supposed to meddle in something that is perfect in design and execution. A casual overview of the Reading will reveal a clear commandment warning the servants of God that following a way of life other than God’s does not put them in the company of the Messenger. If anything, this alone should motivate Muslims to confirm that they are in the Messenger’s company. In doing so, the truth shall be revealed.
Indeed those people who change the deen into religion (shi-ya’an), you are not responsible for them in anything. (6:159)
Thus, the verse clearly says Muhammad had nothing to do with any religion of whatever flavours neither he was the head of the Sunni and Shiite sects.
Our wish should be to lead a way of life as ordained by our Lord, who will ultimately take back that life and call us to account for it. To participate in this divine plan, He asks that we believe in the unseen God so that we can be certain of eternal life after death. We are told to be righteous in this life for as long as we shall live so that it will please the Lord. As a people, our intentions are noble but we fail to perform the paramount obligation, that is, to read. None states this quite so elegantly as the verse following:
Read in the name of your Lord who created. He created a person from that which clings. Read, your Lord is the most honourable. He teaches by means of the pen. He teaches people what they never knew. (96:1-5)
Instead of a life of righteous deeds and service, Islam today showcases a way of life that is centred on suppressing thought and talent and features the dogmatic rituals of prayer, idols, customs, traditions and pilgrimages. As regards pilgrimage, the only benefit the author sees arising from this arrangement is to the Arab tourism industry. Effectively, this ritual has doomed every single Muslim to a lifetime of servitude to a ‘god’ in a most ineffective and useless way. In an oblique sense, ‘religion’ is a major export of Saudi Arabia. There are countless faithful who do not have the means to perform the invented pilgrimage but have toiled, incurred debt and sacrificed ceaselessly to fulfil this purported obligation. Strangely, Saudi Arabia (which must have the largest percentage of pilgrims of any country in the world) is no shining example of God’s just love.
These practices have divided both Muslims and mankind as a whole, causing dissent and instilling racial and religious prejudice amongst mankind. Perhaps its most damaging effect of all is that they have diverted mankind from the path of God. These ritualistic pre-conditions of the bigoted Arab religion have spread evil around the world by creating various religious sects to promote their Arab-centric, internal religious beliefs and customs. More importantly, the single most insidious aspect of the propagation of the Arab religion is to divide all those who are at peace. Today, this enmity has not spared other religions that, to some extent or other, are at odds with Muslims. Why is the term ‘fundamentalist Muslim’ now not regarded as a positive term? Therefore the innocent Muslims or those who are at peace should consider returning to their Lord by willingly consenting to His true deen to fulfil their obligations as the true servants of God. They should not be among the idol-worshipers who changed the orderly way of life (deen) into religion:
You shall all return to Him and be observant to uphold your commitments. And do not be among the idol-worshippers who change the deen into religion (shi-ya’an). And each sectarian is happy with what they have. (30:31-32)
Students of the Arabic language are conditioned from an early age to unwittingly accept the teachings of their u’lema (priests) of the Arab religion, regardless of their pertinence or correctness. They are unaware of their wrongdoings and propagate the teachings of the Arab religion to each new generation of Muslims. When alerted to their folly, they respond by saying Muslims who denounce the Arab religion’s discipline in observing God according to the Reading alone are apostates. It is absolutely horrendous that according to their Arab religion such ‘apostates’ are stoned to death. This anomaly alone is evidence of paganism. The true God does not impose double standards.
