The religionists were ignorant of God’s Scripture and they knew nothing about an orderly way of life or the deen adhered to by Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the other prophets, and nothing about what was revealed to Moses and Jesus. Therefore they had no idea of God’s prescribed way of life (Deen-nil-lah) encompassing His laws (shari’al-lah), His limits (hududul-lah), the existence of a harmonious system sanctioned by Him (aminal-baytal-Harami), His consented decrees (masa-jidil-lah), His sanctions in the consented decree (masjidil-Harami) and the concept of ‘in the path of God’ (fi-sabi-lil-lah) which had been known to Abraham, Moses, Jesus and the previous messengers.
God says the Arab race was ummyin referring to them as gentiles, a race who had no prior knowledge of God’s Scriptures. 62:2 says:
huwal-lazi ba'asha He is the One who sent
fil-ummyin1 in the midst of the gentiles
rosulan min-hum a messenger from them
yatlu a'laihem to recite upon them
wa-yuzak-kihem and to purify them
wa-yua'limuhumul and the knowledge of
kitaba the Scripture
wal-Hikmata and the wisdom
wa-ainkanu indeed, they were
min-qoblu from before
lafi-thola-lin mubin in total loss.
Indeed, before Muhammad was sent to the Arabs, they were in total loss about the orderly way of life or the deen. Sadly, but not unexpectedly, they continue to be.
Obviously as pagans they refused to serve God alone. From day one – they rejected the messenger and the revelations. Muslim scholars boast about this man portraying him as the most popular figure among the Arabs but nothing about his disappointment and frustration. Let us read the untold stories about this man from the Reading.
First, let us find out about the people around him including those close to him. We see that the Reading gives a completely different picture. The u’lema says they have in their possession the sayings of the prophet outside the Reading. This is exactly what his close friends demanded from him when he was alive. They said, “Change the Qur’an with something else“. Obviously Muhammad refused.
When Our revelations are recited to them, those unmindful of meeting Us say, “Provide us with a Qur’an other than this or why don’t you change it?” Tell them, “I cannot change it on my own. I simply follow what is revealed to me. I fear, if I disobey my Lord, of the retribution of a terrible day. It is completely up to God. Had I will, I would not have recited all these to you nor you would ever find out about it. I have lived among you for a long time and you know me well. Why can’t you understand?” (10:15-16)
So, where do all the hadiths which the Muslim scholars called the sayings of the prophet come from? The Last Prophet told all his friends that he follows only what was revealed to him – and everyone knows the only thing revealed to him was the Qur’an and nothing but the Qur’an. The hadiths of the prophet are actually the ‘something else’ besides the Reading.
The Last Prophet almost conceded to the demand by his contemporaries in order to maintain the friendship. Out of mercy God strengthened his heart and admonished him in the strongest term that He will inflict the prophet with double punishment in this world and after death – if he had invented something else besides the Reading.
They almost diverted you from Our revelations revealed to you because they pressured you to invent ‘something else‘. Only with that condition they would have considered you as a friend. If it were not that We strengthened you, you almost leaned towards them a little bit. Had you done so We would have doubled the punishment for you in this life and after death. You would have found no one to help you against Us. (17:73-75)
Now, this is where we see Muslim scholars and the mullahs refused to believe what the Reading says. They insist the messenger gave them ‘something else‘ apart of the Reading. They call this something else the Hadiths of the prophet. In other words, they say the Reading is wrong.
Innocent Muslims around the world were deceived by their u’lemas that the Last Prophet had many friends. They say he had thousands of followers and supporters. In 9:40 it says he had only one man with him in the cave. What happened to all his other loyal followers?
All Muslim scholars ridiculed the prophet by saying that he was illiterate despite the proof from the Reading that this man was a learned person. In 44:14 the Arabs around the Last Prophet said he was a mu-a’lamun which means, ‘he is a learned man’, but somehow they also said he was a lunatic or maj-nun.
An-naa lahumus-zikro. Wa-qod-jaa-ahuum ro-suulon-mubin, som-maa tawal-lau a’nhaa, waqor-luu, mu-a’lamun-maj-nun.(44:13-14)
How did they respond to the reminder? And surely there came to them an obvious messenger, and then they ignored him and said, ‘He is learned (mu-a’lamun) but a lunatic (maj-nun)’.
Today the religionists, ayatollahs, u’lemas, gurus, mullahs and the so-called Islamic scholars around the world promote the idea that the last prophet was illiterate whereas the Reading says the opposite. If they think whatever they utter about the prophet is a simple matter, perhaps they should think what the Reading says about slandering:-
You reiterated the accusation with your tongues, thus uttering with your mouths what you did not know for sure. You also thought it was a simple matter, when it is a very serious offence at the sight of God. (24:15)
If the so-called ‘Islamic scholars’ can create a flagrant lie about the prophet’s literacy – then, the rest is history.
They totally ignored all historical facts written within the pages of the Reading about the Arabs around the Last Prophet. The first thing his people said about him:
This is nothing but a man who wishes to divert you from what your forefathers served. This is nothing except invented lies. This is nothing except magic. (34:43)
Lunatic, liar, magician, fabricator are the common terms used by the Arabs against the prophet. The Arabs around him refused to believe the revelations. To add salts to injury they said he made up the revelations, but God provided the answer:
Do they say he made it up? Indeed, it is the truth from your Lord to warn a race (qaum) which did not receive any warner before you so that they may be guided. (32:3)
The Arabs around him were not only staunch disbelievers and hypocrites but they were also good as rumour mongers.
They knew the prophet was preoccupied with writing down the revelations, but they spread some stories to bring into disrepute whatever he wrote.
The disbelievers (Arabs) said, “This is an invention that he has fabricated with the help of some people”. Indeed, they have uttered a blasphemy and falsehood. In addition, they said, “He is writing the tales of the past which were dictated to him day and night”. (25:4-5)
The prophet was told to inform the disbelieving Arabs:
Tell them, “(what you were writing) was revealed by the one who knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth. He is forgiving, merciful”. (25: 6)
This is another example how the Reading is composed. It returns to and reaffirms a single subject in many places. In this verse it says the Arabs were rumour mongers. The something else besides the Qur’an that the u’lema holds dearly for their salvation is the by-products from them.
Contrary to popular belief, the Last Prophet’s mission failed to achieve any response from his own people. His disappointment is seen in the following verse:
Perhaps you wish to kill yourself upon their rejection to believe this message. (18:6)
Some translators indicate that the Prophet wished to commit suicide because the Arabs refused to accept the Reading. We can empathise after reading about them in the Reading. The modern Arabs claim they are following the teachings of the Reading, but the Reading is saying the opposite.
As long as the Muslims around the world remain loyal to the Arab religion they will be shackled to a false belief – until the Day of Judgement. On that great day they will listen to the true sayings of the messenger:
The Messenger will say, my Lord, my people have deserted this Reading. (25:30)
These are Qur’anic facts Muslims cannot reject. In the hereafter the messenger will not utter anything about the word hadith or sunna revered by the Arab priests, but only the Reading.
In 34:44 it says the Arabs did not get any warner before Muhammad. There is also no evidence from the Reading that Abraham was sent to the Arabs as a warner to teach them construction techniques for the building of a house for God in a place called Mecca. Abraham and Ishmael were not construction workers sent to the Arabs in Mecca.
Abraham was more of a demolition expert who destroyed idols. He did not construct a new idol in the form of a cubic house and then say, “This is God’s house!” This is what the polytheists say. They build idols and say, “This is my God!”
The simple rock structure claiming to be the Ka’aba in Mecca today is one of the greatest of the religionists’ scams. It was the religionists who built it and they have managed to fool hundreds of millions of people into worshiping this idol.
1 The word ummyin was wrongly translated as illiterates by all the popular translations. Many qualified scholars still think this word refers to illiterates and their logic says the whole of Arab race were illiterates. Is there any thinking person who wish to agree with them?
