To readers of translations

For those many who have rejected the Hadith books written by men, this book represents another step in their journey on the path of God.

But the Devil says: ‘I am waiting for them on your Straight Path and I will mislead all of the without exception’. It would be inefficient of him to waste his time waiting for people who are already on the wrong path.

Those who have read the Reading may be able to recall the verse in 7:16-17:-

He (the devil) said, “Since You willed that I go astray, I will always skulk on Your right path to mislead all of them. Then I will come to them from their front, from behind them, from their right and from their left. You will find the majority of them are unappreciative”.

If such people are gratified with what they understand from the translations without any careful study or verification, they are likely to be frozen along with the translator’s personal understanding and beliefs which – as a rule – are taken wholesale from the very Hadith books the reader has rejected.

The only way to know about the true Islam is to read the Reading in its purity and use it as the criterion to judge the religionist’s teachings. Do your own research to discover the distortions in the translations and put your trust in God. He is our only protector.

Do not accept anything that you yourself cannot ascertain. Your hearing, eyesight, and your heart each of them will be questioned about it. (17: 36)

Thus, if you are unable to verify, stay away from organised religion. Live a full life. The moral rule to attain a peaceful life in this world is to believe with the unseen God and be an upright person for your own good. To qualify, all we need to do is to be observant of the natural laws, lead a virtuous life by doing good deeds and do what is obvious as a normal human being. God created men and women with basic instinct to understand what is good or bad. When He says ‘honour your parents’, we don’t need any rabbis, priests, monks, or mullahs to tell us how to honour our own parents.

Lastly, ‘The God our Lord needs no one‘ – including the rabbis, pope, ayatollahs, priests, monks, mullahs, theologians or religious scholars, saints, and spiritual leaders who think they know what God wants. These are names that we have invented – our forefathers and us. These names are clusters of walking time bombs – ready to explode at anytime or place. They follow nothing except conjecture and their own opinions about the one God. God never placed any power in them. It is people who make them what – and who they are. If we exercise our right to put them in power – they will remove our right instantly – then say – “if you speak against us you are an apostate”, or “you are an infidel”, or “you are doomed“, and render you to be stoned to death by a true believer.

Thus, we need only God – not morons. Is God alone worthy to be followed or these earthly gods who need the guidance themselves?

Think about this carefully. Why should we be a member of any organised religion when we can be what – and who we want to be – by ourselves? What if you a peaceful man or woman who is truthful, kind, caring, sincere, humble, compassionate, charitable, steadfast, and loving individual – does it matter to God if you are NOT a member any of these clubs? Must you call yourself a Muslim or a Jew, a Hindu or a Christian, a Buddhist or a Bahai?

When we reject these earthly lords – are we rejecting GOD? Not at all! We have made the best decision in our life to severe the relationship with these flagitious gods and return to the true God who created us. We have more reasons to believe in Him as it opens the possibility of His system playing a role in our life. He promised that if we believe in Him alone and be committed to do good deeds and uphold our obligations sincerely, He will liberate us (men and women) as frontiers of peace on earth and endows us the ‘Peacefulness’.

The corruptions

Here is a summary of the corruptions which have been practised against the sense of the Reading by Arab religionists to suit their own purposes:

  1. A’kiffin wa-roka’is-sujud in 2:125 and 22:26 was made to mean bowing and prostrating physically when, in fact, it signifies humble oneself consentingly to God’s sanctioned system.
  2. Sol-laa-ta wa-atu-zakaa is not ritual prayer and wealth tax. It means we are to uphold our commitments and keep them pure.
  3. Sol-laa does not refer to ritual prayers. Its meaning was corrupted to become rituals. The Reading encourages personal commitment through deeds.
  4. Thor-iffin is not walking around or Tawwaf around the stone idol in Mecca but the meaning is groups or throngs of people.
  5. A’kif-fun is not a retreat to a house or to a mosque, but to hold strongly to God’s system or bayta. Wa-antum a’kiffun fi-masaajid’ in 2:187 means and when you are devoted in the consented decrees.
  6. Bayta is not a physical house belonging to God..
  7. Masaajid are not buildings but the consented decrees.
  8. Masa-jidil-lah are not God’s mosques but the consented decrees prescribed by God in the Quran.
  9. Masjidil-Harami is not ‘sacred mosque’. It is the sanctions of the God’s consented decree prescribed in the Quran.
  10. Bayti-ya is not My house, but it is My system. Noah used this word to refer to his system of belief. God uses the term bayti-ka on everyone of us to signify that He removes us from our system to His system after manifesting the truth to us.
  11. Hurumun is not the pilgrim’s garb. The word in 5:1 was twisted to perpetuate the invented Haj pilgrimage of the Arab religion. The word Hurumun simply means restricted or forbidden.
  12. U’mrah is not a visit to the Arab land, but is to promote the deen according to God’s consented decrees or the mas-jidil-lah as prescribed in the Quran.
  13. Haj is not a yearly pilgrimage to Mecca. It is to take the challenge: (1) to the system (2) to deliver the message until it is accepted in society (3) to promote the sanctions of God’s decree and (4) in the path of God (see: 3:97, 2:196, 9:19 and 4:100).
  14. The accepted sense of many words from the Reading has been severely mutilated to suit the rituals of the man-made Arab religion. The worst distortion of God’s word is in 2:196. The perception of the meaning of almost all the words in that verse has been distorted. The verse gives a guideline of how and what a person should do when he or she takes the challenge to promote God’s guidance until it is made acceptable by the masses – but it was distorted to reflect as pilgrimage to suit only for men.

For the Muslims who believe the Reading is the word of God, their duty is to:

  1. Find the path to the System (bayta) and take up the challenge (Haj) to promote what has been sanctioned by God in the Reading to establish the peacefulness or the true Islam.
  2. Uphold commitments (Sol-laa), keep them pure (zakaa) according to God’s laws (sha’iral-lah) and to promote (ya’muru) His consented decrees prescribed in the Quran.
  3. Take the challenge (Haj) and promote (or i’mara-ta) the sanctions of the consented decree (masjidil-Harami) and strive (jahidu) against the idol-worshippers (mushrikeen) and the rejecters (wal-kafireen) who bow and prostrate to stones, rocks and wood (and in this case falsely attribute their practice to Islam).
  4. Not violate decrees or upset the harmony in the sanctioned system (baytal-Harami).
  5. Live according to the sanctions in the system and uphold their obligations.

As we look around us, religious system has been the most powerful tool in enslaving people’s mind; it instils fear, cultivates disorder, separating people, bound in hatred, myth and superstition – a condition which is in the temporal interests of a small ruling elite. Today, our civilisation is living in a deteriorating world and people have tried to solve the world’s ill in many ways at all levels – sadly they failed to look at the problems where it exists – in organised religion.

Dialectical Acrobatics

Some of the idol-worshippers (mushrikin) say the stone house in Mecca represents the glory of God; others say that it is only God’s house symbolically. Such are their dialectical acrobatics. Similarly, they say the pillar in Mina is not the Devil but it symbolises the Devil. Why on earth do they need to symbolise God when God is omnipresent and omnipotent and why in God’s name do they give dignity and recognition to the Devil by ‘symbolising’ him at all?

Symbol means something that represents something else by association, resemblance, or convention, especially a material object used to represent something invisible. Now, this is exactly what the Muslims are associating with the Supreme God.

The fundamental teaching of the Reading propagates the belief of the unseen God and it clearly says, “This scripture is infallible; a guide for those who are observant and believe with the unseen” (2:2-3) and the most important commandment brought by Moses, Jesus and Muhammad was, “You shall NOT serve except God” (17:23).

When people make it a duty upon themselves to visit a symbol – they are actually associating and serving the symbol with the Supreme God. But the Reading says, “God will NOT forgive the association of anything besides Him… Anyone who sets any idol besides God has forged a great blasphemy“(4:48). And the Reading also says: ‘The human being tends to believe only what he sees in front of him”. (75:5).

Yet some idol-worshippers claim they need the square rock structure in Mecca as the direction to focus their ritual prayers. Others say they need the square box to unite the Muslims – but it seems that whatever excuses they give – it works on the contrary. There are no instructions in the Reading that people should face a specific direction when they pray – but there is a clear injunction that they should focus their direction to God’s prescribed sanctions as revealed in the Reading.

After considering all the evidence from the Reading, there is no doubt that the meaning of u’mra-ata (commonly known as the ‘umra) is to give life to or promote God’s consented decree (mas-jidil-lah). It does not talk about promoting a stone structure built by the Arabs in Mecca.

It is the duty of those who subscribe to the deen to cleanse God’s system, keep it pure and respond to the challenge by striving in the path of God against the idol-worshippers and the disbelievers who are polluting (or have polluted) God’s deen. God had never instructed anyone to cleanse a cube in Mecca or anywhere in the world.

Humans need a paradigm shift to follow the deen ordained by God. It is our duty to take the challenge to God’s system. It is a system of observing the moral conduct based upon universal values. It is a simple concept and easy to be observed by any man or woman. We have now reached the level of progress and technology where the machination of the few perverted minds cannot be done in isolation. Thus, take the challenge for your own good.

Those who consented to the system are assured of safety. At the very least, they will be free from the chains that burdened their neck. God’s system can be observed by anybody irrespective of gender, racial origin, culture or colour. All people are equal in the sight of God because He is the One who created them, therefore, they should observe Him the way He should be observed. I wish to remind the reader again that when I use the term He or Him, it does not mean God is being personified.

Mankind should respond to take the challenge (Hajuu) to God’s system (bayta) and give life to it (i’mara-ta) so that they can enjoy the true peacefulness. Religion is the greatest enemy of peacefulness or Islam. Forget about the Arab religion, the religion of Christianity, and the religion of Judaism or any other religion. Leave it to God to deal with those who follow religion to disbelieve in Him.

How could anyone disbelieve in God, when they were nothing, and then He gave them life to live in this world, and then He will put them to death, and then He will bring them back to life in the hereafter? Of course the most difficult part in our life is to be very certain of the life in the hereafter. Perhaps less than one percent of the world population believe in it. What does it cost to believe in it? Absolutely nothing! What IF there is there is such a thing as life after death? Perhaps at that time it would be too late for us to find out that no amount of money could save us from judgement. Or it may be too late to realise that no one can avail another including our parents, wife or children – or to understand that no one can be helped and no intercession will be accepted. It may be disturbing when we see all ties among us are severed and we return to the One who granted us life and death – as individuals.

It is a fact that every prophet talked about the life in this world and the life in the hereafter. Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad talked about it. The Unseen Power will inevitably make us answerable for everything we did in this life. He has counted every single one of us – everything that is in the skies and on earth – male or female. We may not realise every single one of us is nothing except a slave of our Master who created us. Also, it is not possible for any prophets to have instructed the people to serve them besides God. Instead they consistently said, “you shall not serve except God

God has made everything easy for mankind. He will not burden any soul beyond its mean. Thus, people can observe His system from their residences, offices or wherever they may be. Judged by the standards of the Reading people who are dressed in weird ‘religious’ attire are described as hypocrites, ‘When you see them you may be impressed by their appearance – and when they speak, you hear their voice. But they are like wooden logs. They think every outcry is intended against them. Beware of them – God curses them, for they have deviated’ (63:4).

Serve God as individuals

Since the time of Adam God has dealt with His servants as individuals. He created every person on the face of the earth, and each will come before Him as an individual on the Day of Judgement. He does not share His kingship with anyone and He has never allowed any of His servants – not even prophets – to forcibly impose any of His prescribed limits on anyone.

The religionists were not requested by God to build a building called ‘God’s house’. They built a cubical stone structure which began life as a temple and is now an idol in the middle of another temple – one which is no different from the temples the ‘Muslims’ regard as pagan.

No matter what we want to believe, we cannot go against the truth from God when He says the Arabs are the worst community. Translators are forced to exonerate the Arabs by saying the word a’robi mentioned in the Reading refers to the Bedouins or a special brand of the Arab race. God is explicit in everything. The word a’robi has nothing to do with the Bedouins. The Bedouins are called Baduu-na-fil-A’robi – a term which is also found in the Reading. The word a’robi means the Arabs in general including the city-dwellers.

And those who are around you from the Arabs are hypocrites and from the people of the City. They persist in hypocrisy and whilst you may not know them, We know them. (9:101)

The Reading was good on the day it was revealed; it is good at present and it will remain good until the Day of Judgement. When it refers to the Arabs it means just that: Arabs. The Arabs must solve the problem among themselves of identifying the guilty ones. Meanwhile nobody can change the truth in the Reading and none can abrogate the verses to say something nice about the non-believing Arabs. Unless they repent and believe in the Reading, God condemns these people forever. The question is: will they admit their wrongdoings and will they repent?

Perhaps the innocent Arabs may find the answer if they ask themselves the significance of an orderly way of life towards peacefulness with the following:

  • Is there a concept of the house of God for peacefulness?
  • Can they attain global peace by cherishing a rock structure and called it God’s house?
  • What has the stone house and a little black granite, two outcropping rocks, a copper block, and stone pillars got to do with God?
  • What kind of peacefulness towards mankind can they achieved when they perform the religious rites around a rock structure built by their own hands?

These ideas are not found in the Reading.

From being a reconstructed cubical house surrounded by sand forty years ago, the ‘Ka’aba’ is now a lavish building with Italian marble floor fitted with water pumps to channel the refrigerated ‘reverse-osmosis’ water from beneath the cube house (which they claim to be holy). On the Arab soil everything and anything is possible with a little bit of imagination. The rocks can be made divine and the desalinated seawater can be made sacred.

The religionists pronounced only two magic words – ‘Zam-Zam’ – without having to Houdinise the process to turn the sea water to become ‘Holy’. Today Muslims all over the world will include 20-50 litres of Zam-Zam water in their excess baggage to take home.

Only the religionists could come up with an idea as ridiculous as placing God’s house in Mecca and then making the Devil His neighbour in nearby Mina.

As far as the poor visitors are concerned, they are not interested in the true meaning of the word u’mro-ata or Haj because these words are in Arabic. They leave the language to the religionists. Their main concern is to perform the u’mrah and the Haj even if they have to bow and prostrate to the local mountain rocks.

The message of the Reading

The basic message of the Reading is to observe God the Lord of Universe by consent. It is to believe in the One God and the Last Day and to work righteousness; it is to fulfil one’s obligations by upholding the covenants one commits oneself to.

In God’s consented decree (mas-jidil-lah) there are also God’s laws and God’s limits which are the sha’iral-lah and hududul-lah respectively.

For example, in 5:3 God prescribes the limits of restrictions about food. He says, prohibited for us is the consumption of:

  1. blood
  2. carrion
  3. the decaying meat
  4. food dedicated to other than God
  5. animals that die through violent death.

The subject of food is among God’s consented decrees. He decreed that only five types of foods are sanctioned as prohibited. Those who consent themselves to the deen are required to focus on these sanctions.

You shall focus towards the sanctions in the consented decree. Wherever you may be, you shall focus on it. Even those who received the previous Scripture recognise that this is the truth from their Lord. God is never unaware of what you do. (2:144)

God says He is aware of everything we do. He is not concerned with where we live or where we go. But wherever we are we must focus on the consented sanctions revealed by Him.

Each time God instructs His servants to observe a certain set of commitments He indicates this by saying, ‘these are the limits of God’. For example:

Divorce may be retracted twice. Thereafter, you shall allow them to stay in your home amicably if they so desire, or allow them to go amicably. You shall not take anything back you have given to them, unless the couple fears the violation of God’s limit (hududul-lah). If they fear the violations of God’s limit (hududul-lah) then they incur no sin if the wife forfeits anything voluntarily. These are God’s limits. You shall not transgress them. If anyone transgresses God’s limits (hududul-lah), then they are wicked. (2:229)

These are God’s prescribed limits for individuals to uphold in this domestic institution. The prescribed limits (or hududul-lah) are mentioned 14 times and they are confined to domestic issues. The religionists have abused the word hudud by introducing a set of barbaric laws of their own contrivance which they have named the hudud law. Naturally, it has nothing in common with sane and balanced Qur’anic injunctions.

This is how they abuse God’s name. In the hudud law they invented – which goes by the same name God chose for His limits – they can stone people to death, annul marriages arbitrarily without hearing the parties involved, declare you an apostate measured against their Arab religion, incarcerate you for not professing the Arab religion, banish you from the state and confiscate your property. And this they do in the name of God!

Here is another challenge to the u’lema priests. There is not a single hudud law in the Arab religion implemented by the so-called Islamic countries, which is derived from the Reading. Not one. Can you prove otherwise? If not then hang up your robes and do something more useful with your lives before it is too late.

The Arabic tribal laws (which they call hudud laws) were not prescribed by God in the Reading. The true prescribed limits or hudud in the Reading are fair principles which are meant to be interpreted and applied by individuals without any religious elements. These are the facts.
