Pope Francis Updates Bible, Says Homosexuality Is Perfectly Fine Now

Catholics, it is time to convert to Islam. There really is no other alternative.

AP:

Pope Francis criticized laws that criminalize homosexuality as “unjust,” saying God loves all his children just as they are and called on Catholic bishops who support the laws to welcome LGBTQ people into the church.

“Being homosexual isn’t a crime,” Francis said during an exclusive interview Tuesday with The Associated Press.

According to the Pope, God loves everyone “just as they are.” But then he also calls homosexuality a sin:

Francis acknowledged that Catholic bishops in some parts of the world support laws that criminalize homosexuality or discriminate against LGBTQ people, and he himself referred to the issue in terms of “sin.”

If God loves everyone as they are and homosexuality is a sin, that means God loves sin. That is the only logical conclusion from what this kooky pontiff is saying.

But he attributed such attitudes to cultural backgrounds, and said bishops in particular need to undergo a process of change to recognize the dignity of everyone.

“These bishops have to have a process of conversion,” he said, adding that they should apply “tenderness, please, as God has for each one of us.”

Pope says bishops need to go through conversion therapy. You know what that means… Any bishop who is not already gay will have to become gay according to papal decree. Is the Pope going too far?

Some 67 countries or jurisdictions worldwide criminalize consensual same-sex sexual activity, 11 of which can or do impose the death penalty, according to The Human Dignity Trust, which works to end such laws. Experts say even where the laws are not enforced, they contribute to harassment, stigmatization and violence against LGBTQ people.

67 countries are still trying to implement God’s law on earth. This makes the Pope very, very angry.

In the U.S., more than a dozen states still have anti-sodomy laws on the books, despite a 2003 Supreme Court ruling declaring them unconstitutional. Gay rights advocates say the antiquated laws are used to justify harassment, and point to new legislation, such as the “Don’t say gay” law in Florida, which forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade, as evidence of continued efforts to marginalize LGBTQ people.

Not teaching kindergartners about anal sex and lesbianism is a human rights violation, and now, it is also a violation of Catholic papal doctrine apparently.

The United Nations has repeatedly called for an end to laws criminalizing homosexuality outright, saying they violate rights to privacy and freedom from discrimination and are a breach of countries’ obligations under international law to protect the human rights of all people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

The United Nations calls for a lot of things. So what? De-criminalizing homosexuality is a slippery slope that eventually leads to things like forcing gay doctrine on kindergartners and teaching primary schoolers that gender is fluid. And eventually, it leads to women proudly having sex with dogs.

All these countries around the world see where opening the door to Qawm Lut eventually leads to. They are not going to fall into the same trap of “We just want to be gay in private” psy-op. Only the brutal force of the liberal Western hegemony can coerce the societies of the world in accepting this Satanic agenda. And the Vatican is saying loud and clear that they are agents of that same liberal Satanic force.

Francis quoted the Catechism of the Catholic Church in saying gay people must be welcomed and respected, and should not be marginalized or discriminated against.

Did God “marginalize” Sodom and Gomorrah? Or did He “discriminate” against them?

Isn’t having passing familiarity with the Bible kind of a job requirement for being pope?

Francis’ remarks come ahead of a trip to Africa, where such laws are common, as they are in the Middle East. Many date from British colonial times or are inspired by Islamic law.

Actually, the criminalization of homosexuality dates back to the beginning of the human species, and definitely to the beginning of civilization. Humans are naturally disgusting by homosexual behavior, as numerous studies have confirmed. It’s a universal disgust reaction, not some invention of British colonialism or Islam. Though, it is important to note that it is only Islamic Law that remains true to human nature in our times.

On Tuesday, Francis said there needed to be a distinction between a crime and a sin with regard to homosexuality. Church teaching holds that homosexual acts are sinful, or “intrinsically disordered,” but that gay people must be treated with dignity and respect.

Bantering with himself, Francis articulated the position: “It’s not a crime. Yes, but it’s a sin. Fine, but first let’s distinguish between a sin and a crime.

“It’s also a sin to lack charity with one another,” he added.

Wow, is the Pope a fan of Yaqeen Institute? He seems to be stealing their lines.

You can just here the Compassionate Imams reading from this same script.

“It is just like any other sin.”

“We must be gentle and treat everyone with love and respect.”

“We cannot push people away.”

“Hudud? What hudud?”

The pope’s comments didn’t specifically address transgender or nonbinary people, just homosexuality, but advocates of greater LGBTQ inclusion in the Catholic Church hailed the pope’s comments as a momentous advance.

What an outrage! The Pope forgot to mention transgenders! And non-binaries! He also forgot the furries and the Minor Attracted Persons! Why is the Catholic Church so hateful and exclusionary?

“It is a demonic mystery of the human soul why so many men and women have a profound and visceral animus toward members of the L.G.B.T. communities,” McElroy wrote Tuesday in the Jesuit magazine America. “The church’s primary witness in the face of this bigotry must be one of embrace rather than distance or condemnation.”

So, the “demonic” mystery is why people have a “visceral animus” to people engaged in sexual licentiousness , mutilation of genitals, and pedophilia? Ok.

Anyway, the Catholic Church is clearly over. Next they are going to allow female priests, along with openly gay ones. Why even talk about “Catholicism” at this point when you can just make up whatever you want as you go along, as Francis has been doing?

I invite all Catholics to join the winning team. Muslims welcome you with open arms.

40 Aḥādith in Refutation of the Abrahamic Religion

The Abrahamic Religion, also known as Abrahamia, is a concept that is being promoted for the amalgamation of three faiths: Islām, Christianity and Judaism. Interfaith advocates and their supporters seem to be blinded by the reality that there is only one true religion in the world today, and that is Islām.

The following is a collection of the blessed sayings of the final Messenger, Sayyidunā Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam). This compilation has a two-fold purpose. Firstly, to acquire the great reward that has been promised in the Aḥādīth (prophetic narrations) for collecting forty Aḥādīth. Secondly, to educate the Ummah about the great fitnah of the Abrahamic Religion in light of the Aḥādīth. The Arabic title for this collection is Al-Arba‘īn al-Ḥanīfiyyah fi Naqḍ al-Diyānat al-Ibrāhīmiyyah.

As a Muslim studies the Aḥādīth closely, he or she will come to understand that there is absolutely no place for the Abrahamic Religion within our hearts and minds. May Allāh Ta’ālā accept this humble effort from this lowly servant and allow it to shine throughout the world, for the guidance of humanity, until the end of time. Āmīn.

Ḥadīth One

Sayyidunā Abū Hurayrah (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“During the end times, there will be liars and swindlers that will come to you with such aḥadīth that you or your fathers have never heard. Beware of them, save yourselves from them, so that they do not lead you astray or throw you into fitnah.”[1]

Ḥadīth Two

Sayyidunā Ibn Mas’ūd (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“There was no Nabī (Prophet) that Allāh sent before me to his nation, except that he had friends and supporters from them that took his Sunnah and followed his command. Then, there will be such incapable people that will be born, they will say that which they do not do, and they will do that which they do not command. Whosoever strives against them with his hand, he is a believer. Whosoever strives against them with his tongue, he is a believer. Whosoever strives against them with his heart, he is a believer. After this, there is not even a mustard seed’s worth of faith.”[2]

Ḥadīth Three

Sayyidunā ‘Umar (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“There are three types of people who will receive a double reward. A person from the people of the Book, i.e., the Jews and the Christians, who believed in the Messenger sent to him and believed in Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam); a slave who fulfils his duties to Allāh and his duty to his master; and a person who owned a slave woman, taught her good etiquette, provided her with a sound education, then frees and marries her.”[7]

He (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied:

As for his rejection of me, he says that I will never bring him back to life as I had created him the first time. As for his abuse of me, he says, ‘Allāh has a child’, whereas I am self-sufficient, who did not beget nor was begotten and there is none equal to me’.”[17]

“People will continue asking each other (about the essence of Allāh) to such an extent that someone will say, “Allāh created all the creation, but who created Allāh?” When they ask such a question, say, “Allāh is One. Allāh is self-sufficient. Allāh did not beget nor was he begotten. And there is none equal to him.” You should then spit to your left side thrice and seek refuge from Shayṭān, the accursed.”[18]

“What have you prepared for it?”

He replied:

“I did not prepare for it by way of much ṣalāh, fasts, and charity. However, I love Allāh and his Messenger.”

“You shall be with those whom you love.”[22]

Ḥadīth Twenty-Three

Note: This report does not give a license to people to commit sins. It indicates the importance of having the correct beliefs required in order to gain entry into paradise.

Ḥadīth Twenty-Nine

Sayyidunā Abū Sa’īd Al-Khudrī (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“When a person embraces Islām and the beauty of Islām comes into his life, i.e., he lives a good life in Islām, Allāh wipes out every evil he had previously committed. Then, the account of his deeds is like this: a single good deed is rewarded from ten to seven hundred times, while the punishment for an evil deed is the like thereof, unless Allāh pardons him that as well.”[29]

Ḥadīth Thirty

Sayyidunā Abū Hurayrah (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

He replied:

“Say lā ilāha illā Allāh in abundance.”[30]

Ḥadīth Thirty-One

Sayyidunā Ṭalḥa Ibn ‘Ubaydillāh (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“I know a statement, which if a person says at the time of his death, his soul will experience comfort at the time of leaving his body and it will be a light for him on the day of resurrection.”[31]

The statement is lā ilāha illā Allāh.

Ḥadīth Thirty-Two

Sayyidunā Anas (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“A person will enjoy the sweetness of īmān if three qualities are found in him:

• He loves Allāh and his Messenger more than anyone else;

• He loves a person solely for the sake of Allāh;

• He abhors going back to disbelief just as he abhors being cast into the fire.”[32]

Ḥadīth Thirty-Three

Sayyidunā Anas Ibn Mālik (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“One glad tiding to the person who believed in me and saw me. Seven glad tidings to the person who believed in me but did not see me.”[33]

Ḥadīth Thirty-Four

Sayyidunā ‘Amr Ibn ‘Abasah (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that he asked Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam):

“What type of īmān is the most superior?”

He (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied:

“That īmān with which there is hijrah.”

He asked:

“What is hijrah?”

He (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied:

“That you abstain from evil.”[34]

Ḥadīth Thirty-Five

Sayyidunā Abdullāh Ibn Thābit (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Sayyidunā ‘Umār Ibn Al-Khaṭṭāb (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) came to Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said:

“O Messenger of Allāh, I passed by a brother of mine from the Banū Qurayzah. He wrote a few comprehensive teachings from the Tawrāt and gave them to me. If you permit, I will read them to you.”

The face of Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) changed color. So I, i.e., Sayyidunā Abdullāh Ibn Thābit (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu), said to him:

“O ‘Umar, don’t you see the anger on the face of Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?”

‘Umar (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) immediately realized his mistake and said:

“We are pleased with Allāh as our Rabb, with Islām as our religion and with Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as a Messenger.”

On hearing these words, the effects of anger disappeared from his face and he said:

“I take an oath in the name of that being in whose control is the life of Muḥammad, if Mūsā (‘alayhi as-salām) was present among you and you were to follow him and leave me, you would go astray. From among all the nations, you have fallen into my lot. And from among all the Messengers, I have fallen to your lot.”[35]

Ḥadīth Thirty-Six

Sayyidah ‘A’ishah (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

Ḥadīth Thirty-Seven

Sayyidunā Ibn ‘Umar (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhumā) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Follow the large group (sawād al-a’dham). He who separates from the group, he will fall alone into the fire.”[37]

Ḥadīth Thirty-Eight

Sayyidunā Jābir (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Sayyidunā ‘Umar (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) came to Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said:

“We hear the talks of the Jews and it seems good to us. Do you permit that we write them down?”

Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Are you astonished just as the Jews and Christians were? Know well, I have indeed come to you with a clear and bright sharī’ah. If Mūsā (‘alayhi as-salām) was alive, he would have no option but to follow me.”[38]

Ḥadīth Thirty-Nine

Sayyidunā Mu’ādh Ibn Jabal (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Indeed Shayṭān is the wolf for man, just as there is the wolf for the sheep. The wolf catches that sheep that flees from the flock or goes far away from the flock or it is at the edge of the flock. Beware of the valley, i.e., deviation. Hold firmly on to the group and the main body (of Muslims).”[39]

Ḥadīth Forty

Sayyidunā Abū Dharr (raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu) reports that Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“He who separates from the group, even the distance of a handspan, he has removed the yoke of Islām from his neck.”[40]

May Allāh Ta’ālā keep all Muslims firm upon true faith, keep us safe from deviation, allow us to die upon īmān and unite us with Rasūlullāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in Jannah. Āmīn.

The Multi-Faith Prayer Room: Modern Equivalent to the ‘Ibādat Khāna of Akbar?

The Moghul Emperor, Akbar, founded his own religion in 1582. This religion of his was called Dīn-e-Ilāhī. It was a synthesis of Jainism, Hinduism, Islām and Zoroastrianism. Akbar took parts from each of the religions and amalgamated them.

Akbar established the ‘Ibādat Khāna (House of Worship) for conducting religious debates and discussions among theologians and professors of different religions. These discussions led the emperor to the conclusion and belief that there is no absolute truth, and he thus created his own, new faith.[1]

Let us fast forward to today, where the Abrahamic House has been set up, ostensibly to build bridges and create harmony between Islām, Christianity and Judaism, for the purpose of peaceful co-existence.[2] The Abrahamic House, located in Abu Dhabi ‘will be a place for learning, dialogue, and worship.’[3]

Just as Akbar established his ‘Ibādat Khāna for discussions, the Abrahamic House will host dialogue between the three religions (Islām, Christianity and Judaism). A fourth space has also been allocated in the Abrahamic House for those who are not affiliated with any specific religion.[4]

The idea behind the Abrahamic House is to cause the Muslims, Christians, Jews and adherents of other faiths to first become confused about their own religions and, then, just as Akbar was led to believe that there is no absolute truth, embrace a new religion that synthesizes all of these religions.

It is interesting to note that the idea of a multi-Faith prayer room has actually been trending for a while, under our very noses. Multi-Faith prayer rooms have already been successfully established in numerous places.[5]

In addition to this, we have the ifṭār parties that are organized specifically for people of various different faiths to attend.[6]

RELATED: Reviewing Yaqeen Institute: A Source of Certainty or Doubt?

These multi-Faith venues and activities must be scrutinized in light of what they are designed to promote. For decades now, Muslims have been in the headlines of news agencies throughout the world. I highly doubt that the Christian and Jewish world is not aware of Islāmic practices such as ṣalāh and fasting. So what exactly is going on here? The obvious trap behind the multi-Faith prayer room is to lure Muslims into places where polytheism is practiced and places they should never go to for the purpose of seeking guidance.

The project is now being accelerated, with the plot to turn Muṣallas and Masājid into multi-Faith prayer halls by hosting Open Days and other functions, designed to pull the non-Muslims into the venue under the guise of da’wah.

After many Muslims were led to believe that the Masājid are super-spreaders of viruses, causing them to frequent the houses of Allāh less often due to fear, etc., they are now being programmed into believing that the Masjid can host polytheistic practices and that the worship of things other than Allāh Ta’ālā can take place therein. We seek refuge with Allāh Ta’ālā from such warped and distorted understandings.

The Masājid Are for Allāh Ta’ālā Alone

وَأَنَّ الْمَسَاجِدَ لِلَّهِ فَلَا تَدْعُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ أَحَدًا

Now, indeed, the places of worship are [solely] for Allah. So do not call upon anyone [in worship] along with Allah.[7]

The verse above is very clear in its purport. Likewise, so are the scholars of Tafsīr in their explanation of this verse. According to Mujāhid (raḥimahullāh), when the Jews and Christians entered their Churches and Synagogues, they would include partners alongside Allāh Ta’ālā in their worship. Allāh Ta’ālā instructed his messenger and the Muslims that, when they enter the Masājid, they should keep their worship and supplication solely for Allāh Ta’ālā.[8]

In this regard, Muslims must be vigilant and on their guard at all times. We live in an era when Islām, Muslims, the Masjid, Islāmic dress, Islāmic practices and laws, etc., are all being targeted. We need to be able to quickly identify every new attempt at deforming Islām. All attempts to turn the Masjid into a multi-Faith prayer hall must be actively opposed, thwarted and stopped at all costs.

May Allāh Ta’ālā protect the Muslims and the Masājid in all parts of the world. Āmīn.

Scholars from Muslim group condone China’s genocide after staged East Turkestan trip

Following a highly choreographed visit, China’s genocide against the Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims has essentially been backed by the World Muslim Communities Council

Uyghur activists, scholars, and other influential figures have widely condemned a UAE-China co-ordinated visit to occupied East Turkestan amidst the Uyghur genocide. The World Muslim Communities Council (WMCC) visit to East Turkestan came following an invitation from China. The delegation commended the Chinese government’s “counter-terrorism” policies against Uyghur Muslims after visiting the capital city of Ürümqi, as well as museums in Chinese-occupied East Turkestan. [1]

The delegation included thirty intellectuals and religious scholars from 14 Muslim countries, including – most regrettably – the former Grand Mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina, where Muslims were themselves victims of genocide in the 1990s.

Also amongst those present were individuals from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Bahrain, Tunisia, Serbia, South Sudan, Mauritania, Indonesia, Kuwait, Jordan, and Oman.

The organisation that planned the trip, WMCC, released a statement after the visit. In it, the entity noted China’s “historical ties” with the Islamic world, and complemented the successful execution of their “counter-terrorism” plan in “Xinjiang”. [2]

In addition, it was said that the delegation spoke of their economic relationships with China, particularly under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which is a heavily Chinese-financed trade, infrastructure, and investment project that seeks to connect China to the rest of the world. [3]

After a deceptive display of East Turkestan from the Chinese guides, the delegates seemed ignorant of the fact that China applies the “extremist” label to Muslims adhering to basic tenets of faith, such as praying, fasting, wearing the hijab, and refusing to consume pork and alcohol. [4]

“Muslim countries are becoming even more subjective under China’s infiltration policies, economic ties, and unsubstantiated diplomatic relations with China. China’s deception is working fine among Muslim countries, and the complete ruination of East Turkestan – once a sovereign nation and the first Islamic Republic on Earth.

“More than 16,000 religious places are destroyed; over half a million Muslim Uyghur children have been victims of state-run apostasy agendas of China; millions of Muslims are sent to concentration camps; thousands of healthy Muslims are affected by China’s organ harvesting missions; millions of Islamic literatures have been burned and entire Uyghur Muslim [communities] have been criminalised for their Islamic faith.”Statement from the International Union of East Turkistan Organizations (IUETO)

Imams from Egypt, UAE, Syria and more visited #China + framed the genocide against Uyghur as “Fighting terrorism.” These Imams are: 1. Using Islam to faith-wash genocide 2. Bending to Chinese money and power 3. Have Muslim blood on their hands Cowardly and despicable.

Unsurprisingly, Uyghur organisations expressed their deep disappointment following the visit. [5] Rightly, they expect fellow Muslims to show solidarity rather than collude with those carrying out the oppression.

The following statement was given by Uyghur activist and IUETO member, Abduresid:

“The Muslim population of East Turkestan feel very hopeless about the delegation visit of the World Muslim Communities Council to East Turkestan following an invitation from China on 8th January, and the latest statement of the chairman…

“Their statement used the same language China created for eliminating Islam and ethnic cleansing of the Muslim population by defining all Islamic and ethnic features as terrorism and extremism.”

It is evident that China is feeling the pressure from the international community, and that this tour is the latest in a series of diplomatic and cultural visits from Muslim delegates to push their systematic “white-washing” campaign and delegitimise claims of genocide. [6]

Stand4Uyghurs is dedicated to standing firm with our Uyghur brothers and sisters against China’s oppression and persecution. We will continue to mobilise together and raise our voice! Support the Stand4Uyghurs movement!

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

CAN MUSLIMS ASSOCIATE WITH MODERNISTS?

By Mufti Abdullah Moolla

Ikhtilāf, or, Difference of Opinion, is of varying types and degrees. A broad overview of the subject shows that there are basically two types of Ikhtilāf. One is praiseworthy and the other is blameworthy.

Ikhtilāf in subsidiary matters, where the principals and fundamentals adhered to by both parties involved are the same, is praiseworthy. This is because the aim and goal of both parties is to reach the truth.

Ikhtilāf in principle matters and fundamentals is blameworthy, despised and looked down upon. An example of this is the Ikhtilāf (or Difference of Opinion) between a Muslim and a Christian; a Sunni and a Shia; or, as is the case in our current context, between a Traditional and a Modernist. The belief system, values and spirit of each party is different, and the aim or goal of each party differs too.

Now, a vital question that arises is: how should we deal with, and treat a person who holds a position different to ours when it is of the second type, i.e., Ikhtilāf in Uṣūl? The case where the opposite party holds a different belief system and mindset from that of a Muslim or a Traditionalist.

Should we consider this Ikhtilāf to be a minor issue and ignore the differences? What are the limits of this kind of behaviour?

When we examine the lives of the pious scholars of the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamā’ah, we find that they did not treat this as a matter to be taken lightly. They were not easygoing or overlooking, and never was there a case of compromise.

Yes, when it came to social interaction with people who held a totally different position, then they were courteous, kind, and considerate – on condition that thereu was no harm caused to Islām. The proofs of this position are detailed hereunder:

You will not find a people who believe in Allāh and the Last Day having affection for those who oppose Allāh and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred. [Sūrah Al-Mujādalah: 22]

And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire, and you would not have other than Allāh anyu protectors; then you would not be helped. [Sūrah Hūd: 113]

Imām Qurṭubī raḥimahullāh, one of the most celebrated expert scholars of Tafsīr in Islāmic History, explains the above verse of Sūrah Hūd as follows:

‘The correct and authentic view regarding the Tafsīr of this verse is that this verse points out to remaining aloof and away from the people of disbelief, the sinners from the innovators and others. This is because their companionship entails disbelief or sin. Companionship itself only occurs because of love.’ [Tafsīr Qurṭubī vol.9 p.108]

In the Ahādīth, we are taught that a sign of proper and complete īmān, i.e., faith, is to love for the sake of Allāh and dislike, or hate, for the sake of Allāh.

Sayyidunā Abū Umāmah raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu and Sayyidunā Mu’ādh Ibn Anas raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu report that Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “He who gives for the sake of Allāh and withholds for the sake of Allāh and loves for the sake of Allāh and hates for the sake of Allāh, he has completed his faith.” [Tirmidhī, Abū Dāwūd, Ḥākim, Ṭabrānī]

Sayyidunā Mu’ādh Ibn Jabal raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu reports that Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:

“He who goes to an innovator in order to honour him, he has aided in the destruction of Islām.”[1]

Other reports from Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam instruct us not to mix, sit and associate with those who deny Taqdīr.[2]

From this, the scholars have deduced that one should not have love for those who adopt deviated beliefs, and those who engage in ignorant innovations. In fact, one should have dislike for such people.

Sayyidunā Ibn ‘Abbās radiyallāhu ‘anhuma said:

“There is no one on the surface of the earth more hated to me than the Qadariyyah sect. This is only because of the fact that they deny the Qadr of Allāh.”[3]

Yaḥyā Ibn Ya’mur raḥimahullāh says:

“I said to Ibn ‘Umar raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu, “There is a people who have sprung up in Iraq. They recite the Noble Qur’ān and understand it. They say that the Qadr of Allāh is of no essence, i.e., they deny it.” Ibn ‘Umar raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu said, “When you meet them, then say, ‘Indeed Ibn ‘Umar is free of them and they are free from me.’”[4]

The following statement is reported from Abū Qilābah, Ḥasan Baṣrī and Sha’bī raḥimahumullāh:

“Do not associate with those who worship their desires and do not debate with them.”[5]

Fuḍayl Ibn ‘Iyāḍ raḥimahullāh said:

“He who honours an innovator, Allāh Ta’ālā will cause him to become blind before he dies.”[6]

Note: This could refer to literal blindness; or blindness of the heart, where a person fails to differentiate between the truth and falsehood.

Imām Baghawī raḥimahullāh said:

“The ṣaḥābah, tābi’īn, tab’ tābi’īn, and scholars of the Ahl-us-Sunnah are unanimous upon the position of dislike for the innovators and staying away from them.”[7]

Imām Shāṭbī raḥimahullāh said:

“The saved group, i.e., the Ahl-us-Sunnah, have been instructed to have dislike for the innovators and to stay away from them. They are instructed to punish those who incline to the innovators. We are instructed to have dislike for them, and they are instructed to turn towards us, build friendship with us and return to the main group, i.e., the Jamā’ah.”[8]

Abul-Jauzā’ raḥimahullāh said:

“I would prefer that a monkey and pig stay with me in a house rather than having a neighbor from the people who worship their desires.”[9]

Yaḥyā Ibn Abī Kathīr raḥimahullāh said:

“When you meet an innovator on the road, then take another road.”[10]

Fuḍayl raḥimahullāh said:

“One of the signs of being afflicted with a calamity is that the friend and associate of a person is an innovator.”[11]

Together, along with these statements from the pious predecessors, they have permitted the Ummah to deal amicably and properly with the deviated sects and innovators. There are examples of this in history too.

Summary

As far as matters of religion are concerned, the pious predecessors have never resorted to compromise. Yes, as far as social mannerism and character is concerned, it is permitted to deal amicably and cordially with them. From this we understand that we should not have love in our hearts for the people of disbelief and innovation, but rather that it is essential and necessary to have dislike and hate for them. The most that is permitted is for us to deal amicably in social matters. It is for this reason that the scholars of the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamā’ah have stated that it is not permitted to have a friendship relation or companion relation with people of innovation.

From the references provided above, we understand that the position of the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamā’ah is that unity and agreement can never be permitted with those who differ with us in principal matters, i.e., matters of Uṣūl. Yes, when discussing differences, it must be done in the best way, where the strength and beauty of undiluted Islām is displayed with all its grandeur.

What we have to deal with on a daily basis is Modernists twisting the Qur’ānic instruction to argue in the best way. They choose to mock and scorn at Islām and traditional Muslims, spreading Modern toxicity and bigotry, based on their desires.

After shamelessly mocking and attacking fundamental Islāmic teachings and personalities, the Adab-less modernists then start throwing around the “Adab card” where it does not even apply. Subḥānallāh, it’s a clear example of the pot calling the kettle black.

INTERFAITH AND THE MEDINA TREATY

INTERFAITH AND THE MEDINA TREATY

Posted on 

Interfaith And The Medina Treaty

INTERFAITH IS KUFR

Please comment on the following Jumuah talk by reverend Abraham Bham:

INTERFAITH AND INTRAFAITH

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made a pact where he called all the people of Medina, the different tribes and religions and told them we are going to live together,

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made a pact which had 47 clauses which related to how the muslims are going to relate with non-muslims… We are supposed to people to the soultions to how to live together but we are fighting amongst ourselves..

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) promoted a common citizenship for people living in Medina ,All will sit together regardless of religion..

Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made a clause where all will defend medina together, if anyone is killed then all will help the family of deceased,

Another clause all religions are free to practice their customs and ceremony’s, in our religion there is great emphasis on living amicably with other religions..

Interfaith means people of different faith, intrafaith means people of different faiths, Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran – “ Muslims should be good to others” but the situation is sometimes we are good to others and hatefull to our own, when Allah Ta’aala says “we are supposed to be loving and caring towards one another.. Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made brotherhood between people of different religions.”

(End of the Cross-Worshipper’s talk)

OUR COMMENT

The Cross-Worshipper’s talk is bunkum kufr. It is bereft of not only Shar’i substance, but also displays his gross jahaalat and deception.

In the treaty between Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the several tribes of kuffaar and mushrikeen there is not the remotest reference to interfaith. There is not a semblance of toleration of kufr and compromise with any belief and tenet of Islam. It was a political treaty contracted at a time when the population was predominantly kuffaar – a few hundred Muslims against about 10,000 kuffaar (Yahood, Nasaara and Mushrikeen). The Medina Treaty was enacted in the first year of Hijrat. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had just arrived in Medina. He was not the king or ruler of Medina as yet.

The threat of the Mushrik Quraish of Makkah was heavily overhanging the nascent Islamic Movement. An attack by the Quraish on Medina to eliminate this fledgling Islamic Movement was a reality and a constant fear of the Muslims. Therefore, there was the imminent need to fortify the city against such an attack, hence the Medina Treaty. But, despite the fact that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was not the ruler of Medina, by the decree of Allah Azza Wa Jal, he managed to gain the co-operation of all the kuffaar tribes who became signatories to this Treaty.

But this Treaty does not proffer the slightest scope for the interfaith kufr which the miserable Cross-Worshipping reverend abortively peddles.

Abortively struggling to eke out support for his interfaith kufr, Reverend Abraham Bham of the Cross says:

 “Another clause, all religions are free to practices their customs and ceremonies.”

Firstly, no one in the current context of life where Muslims live alongside the kuffaar in non-Muslim countries, has ever even suggested or even dreamt that the kuffaar should be prevented from adherence to their religions and customs.

Secondly, those who are vehemently and vigorously opposed to interfaith kufr had never suggested that Muslims in non-Muslim countries or even in Muslim lands should become hostile towards the kuffaar. Thus, the idea which the lying, deceiving Cross-Worshipper is peddling is a massive falsehood designed to entrap ignorant an unwary Muslims into shaitaan’s snare of interfaith.

Thirdly, interfaith means compromise with baatil – with kufr. It means abolition of Da’wat and Tableegh. It means respect and honour for the kufr beliefs and kufr practices of the kuffaar. It teaches toleration and even participation in acts of kufr such as worshipping the Hindu fire-deity, i.e. the holy fire, around which wedding couples should circumambulate chanting the praises of the fire-god of the Hindu mushrikeen; burying atheists and performing ‘janazah salaat’ for them; going to their churches and temples and praying under crosses of kufr and shirk; standing and sitting with respect whilst the kuffaar engage in their incantations and prayers of kufr. Interfaith means toleration of kufr to the degree of diluting Imaan and making nonsense of the uncompromising stance of Islamic Tauheed. Interfaith means that all religions and ideologies are on par and that no religion is the absolute truth.

Fourthly, the opponents of this brand of interfaith kufr, do not advocate hostility towards non-Muslims. They are averse to muwaalaat (bosom friendship) which is prohibited by the Qur’aan and Sunnah. Kufr interfaith leads to haraam muwaalaat, hence the Qur’aan Majeed in many Aayaat explicitly and emphatically prohibits such friendship. Muwaalaat with the kuffaar closes the avenue of Da’wat and Tableegh, and worse, it dilutes the Imaani aversion for the acceptance the fisq, fujoor and kufr of the kuffaar. Assimilation with the kuffaar desensitizes Imaani inhibition to kufr and in its wake kufr becomes insignificant and even acceptable.

The ultimate consequence of this wretched muwaalaat can be conspiculously observed in the dalliances which the Cross-Worshipping reverend has with the kuffaar of all hues. He dare not open is mouth against any kufr and shirki practice and belief of his bosom kuffaar friends.

American Christians: Are They Actually Christian?

While Islam is fiercely engaged in resisting the secularization that has gripped most of the world, Christianity has simply abandoned ship and is in an unequivocal retreat—particularly within the West.

In the Muslim world, within the wider society, there exists some sort of natural immunity against liberal-secularism. Fascinatingly though, this is even more so the case with the youth, as is demonstrated in recently collected data in relation to the Arab world and South-East Asia.

Christianity in the West has not been so fortunate. In recent years, nations such as the UK and Australia have lost their Christian majority. This has of course affected their status as supposed “Christian nations.” What is an even worse reality for Christians is the fact that the youth are increasingly even less religious. For example, in the US, only 36% of Generation Z (those born during and after the mid-’90s) identify as Christians.

Christian missionaries, who are obsessed with Evangelizing the Muslim world, should perhaps be paying more attention to the state of Christianity within their own “civilized” West.

But while there is a definite fall in those self-identifying as Christians, we’ve actually got more bad news—perhaps worse even—for these missionaries:

Those who still identify as Christian may not in reality be as Christian as they’d like to believe they are.

To see what we mean by this, let us take a look at US Evangelicals as a case study.

The Evangelicals Who Deny Jesus’ Divinity

“Evangelicalism,” or “Evangelical Christianity,” is a movement within Protestant Christianity which can be said to be trans-denominational. This is in the sense that it doesn’t concern just one sub-group among the Protestants (such as the Baptists, the Calvinists, the Methodists and so on) in particular but essentially all of them.

Ill-defined, it is characterized by individuals who can often be described as “cultural Christians.” These are individuals who experience a “personal conversion” to Christianity during their adult life, thus becoming “born-again.” And they are eager to share this experience with others, actively working to “evangelize” others and thus the tag, “Evangelical.”

White Evangelicals have seen their numbers dwindle over the years, but these numbers have since stabilized at around 14%, making them the second largest religious group in the US, just after the non-Evangelical Protestants, at 16%. In terms of numbers, White Evangelicals would thus number at around 45 million (the estimated US population in 2022 was 332 million).

Even though around a third of Evangelicals are non-White, White Evangelicals account for a category of their own for having influenced American politics for decades—more specifically when they turned to the Republican Party during the ’80s under the presidency of Ronald Reagan. George W. Bush was an unapologetic Evangelical, and recently, most Evangelicals famously voted for Donald Trump, effectively contributing to his 2016 mandate.

To Americans, White Evangelicals are synonymous with conservatism on societal issues (abortion for example). Whereas for Muslims, they’re probably better known for their unyielding and unreciprocated love for Zionism.

To someone looking in from the outside, White Evangelicals in the US come across as a “vibrant” community. They have the numbers, the schools, the media (think of all the rich televangelists), the money (think of the megachurches), the political influence, etc.

They’re typically viewed as Western Christianity’s own “resistants to the waves of secularization.”

But how true is this really?

Ligonier Ministries is a Christian organization involved in many activities around the world—from building colleges, to distributing music and everything in between. This organization, founded by R.C. Sproul (one of the most influential American theologians of the last century and someone who had a particular hatred for Islam), is Evangelical in nature and not “liberal-secular.”

It releases surveys on a regular basis, and the 2022 findings are quite perplexing.

Aside from a set of other societal issues, there’s a particular “statement” (number 7) which is framed as follows:

Jesus was a great teacher, but he was not God.

And how did US Evangelicals respond?

In 2020, 30% agreed with this statement, and in 2022, 43% agreed with it (a 13% shift in just two years).

If we break down these numbers further, then 38% (of the total 43%) “strongly agree,” while 5% “somewhat agree” (for 2020, it was 26% and 4% respectively).

These “key findings” can be accessed here.

The “key findings” only display certain specific statements. In order to view the answers to the other statements, you will need to click on the “DATA EXPLORER” tab at the top of the page, between “KEY FINDINGS” and “MY SURVEYS.”

Let us peruse these statements and their responses.

Statement 2:

There is one true God in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

(strongly agree: 54%, somewhat agree: 16%)

Statement 5:

Biblical accounts of the physical (bodily) resurrection of Jesus are completely accurate. This event actually occurred.

(strongly agree: 47%, somewhat agree: 19%)

Statement 17:

The Bible is 100% accurate in all that it teaches.

(strongly agree: 33%, somewhat agree: 18%)

Statement 30:

The Bible has the authority to tell us what we must do.

(strongly agree: 29%, somewhat agree: 23%)

We could go on and on, but you probably get the idea. As of now, only around half of US Evangelicals “strongly agree” with the basic theology or tenets of their religion (such as the “divinity” of Christ).

And keep in mind we’re talking about the US Evangelicals here. They’re supposed to be the “Salafis” of Western Christianity. What person would continue to identify as a Muslim while, for example, refusing to accept that Muhammad ﷺ is the final prophet; or refusing to accept that the Qur’an is absolutely true and accurate; or declaring that the Qur’an doesn’t have “the authority to tell us what we must do”?

And once again, to make this very clear, we’re not talking about your average Western Christian here. We’re talking about the most conservative of all Western Christians!

It seems that nowadays you’re likely to find more US (White) Evangelicals who believe in Israel’s “divine right” to colonize Palestinians than you are of finding one that actually has faith in the “divine claims” of Christianity, which would be quite telling and symbolic.

And… It’s Not Just the Evangelicals

In the US, the Evangelicals are not alone in being completely unaware of the foundations of their own faith.

Take the Catholics and their beliefs regarding the Eucharist for instance.

In 2019, Pew Research, the pioneer in religious demographics, found the following:

Transubstantiation – the idea that during Mass, the bread and wine used for Communion become the body and blood of Jesus Christ – is central to the Catholic faith. Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that “the Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’”

But a new Pew Research Center survey finds that most self-described Catholics don’t believe this core teaching. In fact, nearly seven-in-ten Catholics (69%) say they personally believe that during Catholic Mass, the bread and wine used in Communion “are symbols of the body and blood of Jesus Christ.” Just one-third of U.S. Catholics (31%) say they believe that “during Catholic Mass, the bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Jesus.”

So a mere third of the US Catholics believe in such a basic theological proposition of their own faith—that is, during the Eucharist, the bread and the wine actually become the body and blood of Jesus. This is the Catholic position, that it’s an actual, “real presence” and not something that is just “symbolic.”

A Catholic that is actively involved in doing “takfir” would thus have no choice but to eject around two-thirds of US Catholics from the Church, and Catholics make up around 23% of the country’s population (White Catholics in particular make up 11%).

So what we’ve mentioned here, regarding both Evangelicals and Catholics, directly concerns tens of millions of individuals within the US, and the situation would likely be significantly worse for them in Europe.

We can thus only guess what the true number of actual Christians in the US—and the West in general—is. Going by these numbers, even the “Salafi-like” US Evangelicals aren’t as religiously invested as they’re often portrayed as being.

We would argue that all of this is due to the fact that Western Christians (including the US Evangelicals, despite their “conservative” posturings) too often embraced liberal-secularism rather than combating it, and it was just a question of when—not if—their very “faith” would become as hollow as the ideology that they had adopted a peace agreement with.
