The Arabs were pagans

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?

Take the challenge to find the system

It seems that in God’s system nobody can inherit the deen from his or her parent. If the parents consented themselves to the way, it is their duty to exhort their children to consent to God’s consented Decrees. Abraham and Jacob reminded their children:

Moreover, Abraham enjoined his children and so did Jacob, saying, “O my children, God has pointed out the deen for you. You shall not die except as those who are at peace (Muslims).” (2:132)

Abraham and Jacob told their children they must not die except to be those who are at peace in obeying the deen prescribed by God. Abraham and Jacob did not tell their children that God had pointed out a religion or a house for them. They said:

God has pointed out to you the deen (or the way of life).

None of them were told to make a pilgrimage to a shrine or to start worshipping God, but they were told that there was a deen of which they must be convinced and then take the challenge to live by God’s system, if they could find the path. Their father Abraham was led to a system, committed himself to it with Ishmael, and together they lived by the sanctions in the system. Similarly, if we consented ourselves to God’s way, we are told to remind our family members to also believe and give their consent to the orderly way of life by doing exemplary good deeds. It stands to reason that if the role model is at peace by upholding this system, the progeny will follow suit.

You shall exhort your family to be committed and persist in doing so. We do not ask you for any provisions. It is We who provide for you. The final victory belongs to the righteous. (20:132)

We are to tell our children the way of Islam is the sanctions prescribed in the Scripture and that they must focus themselves to these sanctions when consented to God’s way to uphold their commitments. They must not fall into idol-worship by following any religion. We cannot tell our children the deen is somewhere inside a stone idol built by the Arabs in the desert. Luqman in his wisdom said to his children:, O my son, do not set up any idol besides God; idol worship is a gross offence’, then he continues:

O my sons, observe your commitments (Sol-laa-ta) advocate righteousness and forbid evil, and stay steadfast in the face of adversity, this is the real strength. Do not be arrogant nor walk in pride, God does not love the boastful and the arrogant. (31:17-18).

There is no evidence that Luqman had received any revelation, but the Reading says God endowed him with wisdom. Thus, he had the ability to make sensible and reasonable decisions. In his wisdom, he knew the most serious offence in this life was to associate God with idols. Yet, the majority of the people on earth serve almost everything but God. They simply cannot seem to serve the unseen God whose domination encompasses the heavens and earth.
