WHY MUSLIMS CAN NEVER EMBRACE INTERFAITH, THE ABRAHAMIC RELIGION, OR, UNITY OF RELIGIONS

🖋 Mufti Abdullah Moolla Saheb

  1. One of the principles of belief in Islām, which is established through consensus, is that there is no true Dīn, i.e., religion and way of life, except Islām. It is the final religion and it abrogates every previous religion, faith, or creed.
  2. The fundamental principle regarding the Noble Qur’ān is that it is the final scripture. It cancels every previous scripture revealed before it (the Taurāt, the Zabūr, and the Injīl etc.).
  3. It is binding upon Muslims to believe that previous scriptures have been cancelled and abrogated, and these scriptures have went through change and alteration at the hands of man. Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam once became very angry when he saw Sayyidunā ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khaṭṭāb raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu reading a page from the Taurāt.
  4. It is a fundamental belief in Islām that Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam is the final messenger. If there was any of the Messengers alive, they would have no option but to follow Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. When Sayyidunā ‘Īsā ‘alayhi as-salām will descend in the end times, he will rule according to the sharī’ah of Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam.
  5. Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam has been sent to the entire humanity until the end of time.
  6. It is a fundamental of Islāmic creed that it is binding to believe that whoever amongst the Christians, Jews, or other religions, does not embrace Islām, then that person is a disbeliever, and will enter hell-fire if he does not submit.
  7. In the same way, the person who does not observe other religions as disbelief, he will become a disbeliever himself.
  8. It is a filthy idea to conceive that all religions can be embraced as one and equal. The objective of this call is to mix the truth with falsehood. The goal is to destroy Islām.
  9. The effect of the call to unite the religions is to break the barrier standing between Islām and disbelief; the barrier between truth and falsehood; the barrier between right and wrong.
  10. If a Muslim calls to the unity of religions, he will leave the fold of Islām. The call to unite the religions clashes with the fundamental beliefs of Muslims.
  11. If a Muslim is pleased with the unity of religions and calls to it, he is, in reality, claiming his happiness with disbelief, and he nullifies the veracity of the Noble Qur’ān.
  12. It can never be permitted for a Muslim to adopt the interfaith line of thought or implement it practically. Likewise, it can never be permitted for a Muslim to participate in interfaith activities and charters.
  13. A Muslim can never print the Taurāt and Injīl on their own. So how can it ever be permitted to print the Noble Qur’ān with the previous scriptures in a single volume? Whoever does this or calls to it is in serious deviation.
  14. A Muslim can never accept an invitation to a multi-faith prayer centre, because he will be stating that there is a valid religion in which Allāh Ta’ālā is not worshipped. In essence, by doing this, he is saying that Islām does not cancel previous religions. It is quite clear that such an attestation is clear disbelief and deviation.
  15. One cannot say that a church, synagogue, temple, or other place of worship is a Masjid or the house of Allāh Ta’ālā, or that followers of other religions are worshipping Allāh Ta’ālā, or their worship is accepted by Allāh Ta’ālā. The places of worship other than the Masājid are places where blasphemy in the name of Allāh Ta’ālā is done.
  16. Muslims are bound to call the Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and adherents of other faiths to the truth and light of Islām. This can be done through calling them to Allāh Ta’ālā, debating with them, giving them literature and audios on Islām.
  17. Interfaith activities display that one has come down to their level and understanding that Islām is just a faith amongst the faiths, we seek the protection of Allāh Ta’ālā.
  18. Embracing interfaith creates major problems within the home. A person is left without direction and marries, has children, and interacts with others as a faithless person.
  19. Living as an interfaith advocate creates havoc in society, even in the case of a Christian or Jew. The interfaith advocate will be roaming about in confusion, not knowing how his own abrogated scripture will now ‘guide’ him because it clashes with the truth of Islām.
  20. Islām has come to overpower every faith or religion. Nothing but Islām is accepted by Allāh Ta’ālā. May Allāh Ta’ālā save the entire Muslim Ummah from the misguidance of the interfaith movement, the Abrahamic Religion, and any idea or activity linked to it. Āmīn
