Editorial NOTES

This small book is the result of years of data gathered interacting with people for and against Rashad Khalifa in internet forums and in real life, including my personal experience and research. Many have contributed to this book, directly and indirectly, knowingly and unknowingly. I want to thank all the people, who by the grace of Allah [SWTA], helped me to open my eyes; thanks to their criticism. Actually it took me too long to realize the facts and gradually I understood what Rashad Khalifa was really about.

I believe the “Submitter” movement that he founded will collapse if people have the courage to read and study carefully this simple book, and face the facts and pass down the information around them. I suggest everyone to print this and circulate to get the most from it.

Couple of years before, one of my maternal uncle, who came to know that I’m in the trap of Khalifa’s group, has gone through Khalifa’s translation and originally written this as a short article and relieved me from that trap out of Allah’s Mercy.

As the article was originally appeared only as a brief note, I  developed it and elaborated it to the point ‘how it looks like now’. I worked for a long time to ensure that it not only warns the Muslim community to be careful about Khalifa’s tricky works but it also brings back the whole Khalifa’s group back to Islam, Insha Allah. I have also discussed with my uncle, several times during the compilation of this short book, which helped me a lot.

The reason for quoting only Quran as the source of reference throughout the book is because the actual targeted group is the deviant sect – Khalifa’s group.

All Praise is due to Allah [SWTA]

Preface                                                                                                                                          

When Rashad Khalifa proclaimed that he has discovered a mathematical code of Quran, which is number “19” even though most of the Islamic Scholars where awaiting to see how he is going to react next but still some very few scholars ignored the crucial command, guideline of Al-Quran given below and the evil consequences of that ignorance has been dealt in this short book:

Command 1)     “O Believers, if one who publicly commits sins brings you any news, Ascertain its truthfulness carefully, lest you harm people through ignorance and then regret what you have done”. (49:6).

Guideline 2)     “He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are decisive, they are the basis of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding.” [3:7]

[3:8] Our Lord! Make not our hearts to deviate after You have guided us right, and grant us from Thee mercy; surely Thou art the most liberal Giver.

After the verse about ‘mutashabihat’ the very next verse signals us to pray for “protection against, getting deviated from the right path that Allah [SWTA] has guided us; is not a coincidence but very crucial to observe, understand and adhere!

All Khalifa has did is two things and they are:                                                                               

1) Mixing some of the truth with falsehood;                                                                                  

2) Concealing some of the known truth by not disclosing it to others.

But the above two were against, Quran’s clear Command:                                                       And mix not up truth with falsehood, nor hide the truth while you know. [2:42]

There is no denying that cunning persons have been misleading and misguiding people, since their majority followers do not apply common sense of reflecting with reasons and logic. Such cunning persons are usually aware of the weakness and desires of common people and quite conveniently deceive them.

Saamri is one such character who took the gold ornaments of companions and did a trick and fraud with them. He made an object, resembling a calf, in such a manner that some sound was heard coming from it. The people were surprised and amazed. Saamri told them that it was their god and they gathered around it.

Allah [SWTA] informed Moses [P], that during his absence, Saamri has be-fooled his nation, Moses [P] returned back in anger and furry. But he did not kill Saamri instead he conducted an inquiry. Kindly compare how Allah [SWTA] has conducted an inquiry on Iblees and what kind of evil reasons that he has confronted for his attitude [what his soul has suggested him to do against Allah’s command].

Similarly Allah [SWTA]’s Messenger-Moses [P] has enquired saamri, and he has confronted all kind of evil reasoning similar to Ibless [what his soul has suggested him to do against Allah’s Guideline].

Prior to enquiring on Saamri, Moses [P] questioned his nation why they obeyed Saamri and followed his footsteps.

A group of people explained to him:                                                                                                 “They said: “We broke not the promise to you, of our own will, but we were made to carry the weight of the ornaments of the people, then we cast them (into the fire), and that was what Saamri suggested. Then the Saamri forged the body of a motionless calf which gave out a hollow sound.” The people said, “This is your Lord and the Lord of Moses whom he (Moses) forgot to mention”. [20:87-88]

One group of people is giving their explanation. They said about what they had done was not by their design, but it was suggested by Saamri that they should return the jewelry in their possession. So they gave it away. And Saamri converted that jewelry into a calf like object for them. And they found that the strangest thing was also it produced sound. Saamri had played a trick and created a wrong perception in the minds of people with that sound phenomenon.

Allah [SWTA] has pointed it out as a fraudulent perception in Quran by a simple argument, which has complete reasoning and absolute logic; all praise belongs to Allah [SWTA]:

“In Moses absence, his people manufactured a hollow sounding calf out of their ornaments. Could they not see that it could not speak to them or provide them with any guidance? They gained only evil by worshiping the calf.” [7:148]

“Did they not see that it could not return them a word (for answer), and that it had no power either to harm them or to do them good?” [Refer 20:89]

The Bani Israel of that time after realizing their stupidity, they repented. Saamri fascinated people with the buzz-sound and Rashad Khalifa fascinated people with digit-19. Both don’t answer people with words. They merely fascinate and fascination makes people go astray.

Similar to Iblees and Sammri, when Islamic leaders asked Khalifa why he did tried to corrupt the true religion of Islam with Mutashabihat verses and numerology, he has confronted all his lust i.e. what his soul has suggested him to do against Allah’s commands and guidelines. The very similar result of both the inquiries; Iblees and Sammri were asked to get last; Khalifa was also asked to get last from Islam so he went ahead and founded a new religion.

Even-though Khalifa has named it as Submission but the actual name of it should be “Deen-E-Khalifa, which contains 50% numerology, 2% Mutashabihat verses, 3% information from anonymous information, 40% from Khalifa’s perception about religions, and 5% from old scriptures!

The best way to get people out of mere fascination and enable them to reflect on simple realities is to confront them with the truth which Khalifa clothed with the false hood; and to tell that truth, which Khalifa deliberately concealed. This effort in accordance with verse-[2:42], may help many, except for those who have made Khalifa as an idol in their hearts and love him with continued fascination.

He worked very hard to make people believe that two verses [9:128-129] are false and injected. He applied and made use of both the techniques, which were prohibited in verse [2:42]. In this regard what fact that he has mixed-up with false hood and what fact he deliberately concealed are discussed in this book. Saamri was much “wiser”; as he played with buzz-sound and was extremely successful in be-fooling an entire nation.

Digits too have a fascinating effect; but eventually, it turns back on the person to expose him fully, as fudging does not survive longer with respect to digits and figures howsoever Khalifa might have thought himself as clever. The main job of an intellect is to differentiate between two different things.

Only by differentiating between good and bad, one can become prudent, wise. Any-one who fails to differentiate between truth and falsehood is merely an emotional people, and is declared by Qur’an as the worst of the creatures. Should we not try to differentiate between a Messenger of Allah [SWTA] and a deceiver?

If anyone takes Al-Quran only, which is referred throughout this study, “Insha Allah” they may find who is Rashad Khalifa! Kindly go through the conversation between Moses [P] and Sammri, which is recorded in the Al-Quran by Allah [SWTA]:

[20:95] (Moses) said: “And what is the matter with you, O Sammri?

[20:96] He replied: “I saw what they saw not: so I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Messenger, and threw it (into the calf): thus did my soul suggest to me.”

[20-97] (Moses) said: “Get thee gone! but thy (punishment) in this life will be that thou wilt say, ‘touch me not’; and moreover (for a future penalty) thou hast a promise that will not fail: Now look at thy god, of whom thou hast become a devoted worshiper: We will certainly (melt) it in a blazing fire and scatter it broadcast in the sea!”

Either Saamri or Khalifa: An intellectually dishonest person is in fact a pseudo intellectual, suffering from psychological disorders and has the self assumed perception of superiority. He is a person who has a disease in his heart, in the words of  Al-Quran, and Allah lets him advance, making his disease increasing all the time in his life [Refer 2:10]. He perceives as if he is purifying things instead the fact is; that all his work creates nothing but confusion and deviation from the straight path of Allah [SWTA] for many among the believers.

If you compare the attitude of Saamri and Khalifa, you can see a lot similarity in them:

  • Saamri: Proclaimed that he was able to see, what the other Israelites’ were unable to see.

Khalifa: Proclaimed that he was able to see [19], what the other Muslims were unable to see.

  • Saamri: Took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Messenger, and threw it (into the calf). Thus did his soul suggested to him.

Khalifa: Took a hint from the footprint (History) of the Messenger [See Khalifa’s Appendix-25, where he says: The books of Hadith indicate that the Quranic initials were believed to determine the life span of the Muslim Ummah] and put the Quran-initials into a computer. Thus did his soul suggested to him.

  • Saamri: Fascinated people with the buzz-sound of the golden-calf and portrayed that like a great miracle, even-though it cannot respond to people in the form of an answer but that fascination made many people to gone astray.

Khalifa: Fascinated people with the correlation of Quran-initials and portrayed that like a great miracle, even-though it cannot respond people in the form of an answer but that fascination made many people to go astray.

Rashad Khalifa is dead and his account is with Allah [SWTA]. We should be concerned only about, which he has left in writing, a stinking odor and about those whom he fascinated. Therefore, we should not try to prove him as an intellectually dishonest person by researching about his personal life instead we should judge and know Khalifa by what he has himself said and believed, in the light of Quran; the criterion.

BOOK: Critical Evaluation of ‘Rashad Khalifa’ with Quran-Alone

Chapter-1

Introduction

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, With due respect, regard and love for everyone who prefers the eternal life to the fleeting life of this world, who accepts Almighty Allah [SWTA] as his, her only protector and Lord, who practices regular Salat and Zakat, leading a life of virtues, may I note down few remarks on the life and work of Rashad Khalifa based on Quran, History and Mathematics.

May Allah [SWTA] give us the patience and strength to keep an open heart to listen to the words and to follow the best in it (39:18) and to be among those who have been guided by Allah [SWTA]. It seems that initially Khalifa had been doing research on the meaning of letters like A.L.M etc., for couple of years together, which are not the foundation of the book.

Allah [SWTA] might have given him some insight into its meaning and a few convincing facts brought into light, similarly how the translators of Al-Quran like Yousuf Ali came to know the in-depth meaning of some/many verses of Quran when he was working on the translation, similarly scientist like Maurice Bucaille might got some or more insight into scientific related verses in Quran. This is because; the provisions cited in 41:10 may include the needs and appetites of Allah’s [SWTA] creatures and the needs of inquiries as well.

But further going through Khalifa’s works like Quran, The Final Scripture, Quran, The Final Testament, the issues of his monthly news bulletin Muslim Perspective, Submitters perspective, his other books, videos, etc., shows that Khalifa had been misusing his findings, to read his own meaning into the Quran, instead of interpreting Quran with other related Quranic verses. He has found to have deduced the mathematical code and the common base “19” without any clear criteria as listed below:

  1. Using the number of occurrence of a word.
  2. Using the sum of verse numbers.
  3. Considering total number of verses in a surah.
  4. Considering total number of verses in two Surahs.
  5. Calculating total number of Surahs.
  6. Calculating total of Surah numbers.
  7. Counting number of alphabets in a phrase.
  8. Counting Chronology order of Surahs revealed.
  9. Gematrical value of various aspects of Quran.
  10. Sum of Surah number and number of verses.
  11. Number of times the lips touch each other.
  12. Forming long numbers by writing numbers of verses next to each Other.
  13. Arranging initialled Surahs and noting down the position of a particular Surah.
  14. Adding Gematrical value of a phrase in Quran, plus Surah number, plus verse number, plus gematrical value of Rashad or Khalifa or as Rashad khalifa.
  15. Adding Surah number, plus number of verses in it, plus gematrical value of Rashad or khalifa or as Rashad khalifa.
  16. Including the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa at times and value of Rashad alone other times, discarding khalifa at times, if it suits his intentions.
  17. Adding the Surah numbers, plus number of verses in each Surah from starting to some other typical verses in Al-Quran
  18. Excluding Surah numbers and adding only the number of verses from beginning to some typical verses.
  19. Adding value of Rashad Khalifa plus a typical Surah number plus numbers of typical four verses in that Surah.
  20. Accepting the findings of co-researchers to support his arguments and acknowledging them.
  21. Using the words Rashada, Rashad and Khalifa picked up from here and there and accounting for Khalifa at times and discarding Khalifa as “another Khalifa”at times and trying to deduce his own name Rashad Khalifa.
  22. Unknown stranger “Theodore Robert Bundy’s” name consisting of nineteen letters is cited as God given proof to support the argument that “Those who die before the age of forty will go straight to heaven”.

Such claims and his attempt to misinterpret and remove verses from Quran, manipulating the common base nineteen to suite his intentions is totally unacceptable to common people, who have a long time contact with the meaning of Quran. Following verse is more suitable to be furnished in this context:

[31:6-7] “Some people pay for meaningless narrations [Hadith] to draw others attention away from the Quran without knowledge and treat as a matter of fun. They will suffer a humiliating torment. And when Our Verses are recited to such a one, he turns away in pride, as if he heard them not, as if there were deafness in his ear. So announce to him a painful torment.”

Chapter-2

Historical background of the work of Khalifa

History amply demonstrates that deviants desiring to found their own cults among Muslims usually begin their quest by presenting themselves as firm defenders of the faith. This deception is perpetrated in order to attract followers and gain popularity among the ignorant masses. Furthermore, it should also be noted that even the novel ideas and controversial issues of the cults will often contain some truth, otherwise the errors of the cults would be too obvious to people from the outset:

The deviant Shi’ism’s call has always been for the protection of the rights of Ahl al-Bait (the Prophet’s family) as a guise for excommunicating most of the Prophet’s companions, defaming his wives and consequently denying the information about the prophet which has conveyed by his companions.

Ghulam Ahmed, founder of Qadianism, initially wrote articles in Indian newspapers in defense of Islaam against Hindu and Christian missionary claims, before declaring his own prophethood.

In America, Elijah Muhammad openly called black Americans to Islaam and the Qur’aan, but what he actually gave them was a concoction of racist fantasies and fables in which black men became gods and white man were portrayed as devils created by the black gods.

Similarly, Dr. Rashad Khalifa’s stated his aim from the time he initially presented 19-numerology theory in the early 1970’s until the mid 1980’s was to physically prove two things:                                                                                                                                                     1. that the Qur’aan is God’s final message to the world, and                                                                                                                                                                                                                         2. that the Qur’aan was perfectly protected from the slightest distortion, addition or loss.

However, in 1985 he has cancelled the second aim by claiming that the last two verses of Soorah at-Tawbah (the ninth chapter) were fabricated,  and he has interpreted the first aim to mean that only the Qur’aan alone should be followed and anyone who follows the Sunnah was labelled by him as a pagan, idol worshiper.

When the initial presentation of Rashad Khalifa entitled “The Computer Speaks: God’s Message to the World”, was released most common Muslims readily and unquestioningly accepted Khalifa’s 19-based numerology as they had the aura of “scientific fact” about them. Furthermore, his stated aims, to prove the divine origin of the Qur’aan and the purity of its text, were both among the basic tenets of Islam.

However, the religious scholars who initially heard his claims had serious reservations about accepting them. For example, prior to 1981, a Pakistani scholar by the name of Maulana ‘Abdul-Quddoos Haashimi wrote an article in which he rightly pointed that the pseudo-science of numerology, on which some of Khalifa’s arguments were based, was a product of ancient mythology and as such had no place in Islam.

He also condemned the widespread use of the number 786 to represent the Qur’aanic phrase Bismillaahir-Rahmaanir-Raheem (In the Name of Allaah, The Beneficent, The Merciful) as well as the use of numerical equivalents of Qur’aanic verses and chapters in the preparation of amulets commonly known as Taweez.

He referred to the ancient reverence of 19 and its appearance among deviant Shi’ite sects like the 9th century C.E. Karamatians, he concentrated on the 19th century Shi’ite off-shoot, Bahaisim, in which 19 is glorified as the central core of the universe since the founder of Bahaisim, Ali Muhammad Bab, was born in 1819 (1+8+1+9=19).

Abdul-Quddoos Haashimi has concluded his article by stating that if 19 has any religious significance, it belongs to Bahai thinking as the Bahai religious calendar has 19 months consisting of 19 days each and the number 19 can found written on walls and even embossed on chairs in all Bahai premises.

On the other hand, the majority of common Muslims who heard or read about the 19-based numerology theory, eagerly and blindly loved Khalifa’s calculations as it was named as the mathematical miracle of the Quran. But unfortunately a strange victim among them was the internationally known Islamic debater, Ahmed Deedat, who enthusiastically began spreading Rashad Khalifa’s findings to all corners of the world.

You may easily understand the intention of deedat like scholars who might predict that instead of participating in 100 debates to spread Islam it is very easy to convince humans if he announce that he can show them miracles. In 1979, Mr. Deedat published a 75 page booklet entitled, Al-Qur’an the Ultimate Miracle, in which he presented an emotion-packed summary of Rashad Khalifa’s data and arguments.

One of Mr. Ahmad Deedat’s public lectures on this topic was also video taped and distributed worldwide under the title, “Al-Qur’aan: A Visual Miracle.” However, Khalifa later began to publicly make heretical statements beginning with his claim that he had calculated and found that the end of the world would happen during 2880 CE.

Consequently, few of his admirers in the Muslim scholar world, including Mr. Deedat, were forced to denounce him and disassociate themselves from him. Doubts about the correctness of his 19 calculations were then raised and a number of emotional articles were written against both him and his theory. In fact, one of the leading scholars of Saudi Arabia, Shaikh ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz ibn Baz, wrote a fatwaa (religious ruling) concerning Khalifa’s heretical claims in which he declared him an apostate.

During this period, Rashad Khalifa became firmly entrenched in the U.S.A. He married an American Christian and gave up his Egyptian nationality to become an American citizen. From his base in Tucson, Arizona, he freely distributed copies of his monthly newsletter to all Islamic centers throughout the U.S.A. and Canada.

He also built a following among the new Muslim converts, whose Islamic knowledge was limited. Female converts who feel restricted by the Islamic dress code and rules against free-mixing with males were particularly attracted to his ideas by his rulings canceling Islamic dress codes and allowing women to pray beside men in congregational prayer, etc.

However, there still remains the question of whether the basis on which Rashad Khalifa’s theory is built is valid or not, as it continues to attract the unsuspecting and the ignorant after the internet revolution. Hence, it is not sufficient to merely discredit Rashad Khalifa based on his many heretical statements, any one of which is sufficient to remove him from the fold of Islam. This controversy has to be laid to rest by a factual dismantling of its forge foundations.

The following summary of his theory has been prepared for readers who are unfamiliar with its core issues:

  1. According to Khalifa, there is a miraculous numerical code in the Qur’aan based on its “first” verse (Bismillaahir-Rahmaanir-Raheem), which he claims consists of 19 letters.
  2. He believed that this 19-code has been referred in Quran with Chapter-74, verse-30, which states “Over it are 19.”
  3. Based on these two premises, Khalifa claimed to have discovered an intricate mathematical pattern involving 19 and its multiples throughout the Quran and especially in what he calls the Quranic initials which precede 29 chapters (i.e., Alif, Laam, Meem, etc.).
  4. From this discovery, Khalifa concluded that the complexity of this mathematical code’s pattern in a literary work of the Quran’s size is far beyond human capabilities, and that it alone constitutes the only real miracle of the Quran which proves its divine origin.
  5. He further concludes that 19 and its multiples represent the key to the correct interpretation of the Quran and Islam. According to him the reason why 19 was chosen is because NUMBER-19 means ‘God is One’, which is the message of the Qur’an (19 = واحِد = one).
  6. In the book: Quran: Visual Presentation of the Miracle, Rashad Khalifa overwhelms the reader with 247 pages of data proving 52 so-called physical facts. Each fact was supported with pages of tables containing additions, multiplications and divisions of letters, words and verses from the Quran.
  7. The size of the book- Visual Presentation of the Miracle, due to its size alone, is enough to convince the casual reader of its authenticity as even few errors would not be enough to counter the apparently extensive body of data to support the theory. However, under closer examination, it becomes evident that the 52 “facts” are in fact based on a relatively small number of principles.
  8. Here I have to register the most important horrendous trick committed by Khalifa and his followers and that is when they try with hundreds of calculations to find a 19 based phenomenon and fail to find it so, instead of informing the humanity about those fatal, they simply hide them all and make obvious only the calculations which meets their expectation, and then they release the list of those selective calculations in the name of miracles, and I know many of those so-called submitters’ personally!

Chapter-3

RASHAD KHALIFA, The 20th CENTURY HADITHIST

Initially new followers of Khalifa’s ideology are insisted to believe in Rashad as a messenger of Allah based on his “19 theory”, later when the Fatality of the “19 theory” becomes obvious to the new comers still such innocents are insisted to believe the “19-theory” based on the theory that “Khalifa’s as a messenger of Allah”!

Initially innocents are invited by Khalifa’s group to believe in Quran-Alone but once some innocents’ started following that group, later they are burdened with innumerable of Hadiths invented, and fabricated by Rashad khalifa, and attributed to Allah the Almighty, Angel Gabriel, Apostle Abraham, etc!

His hadiths are in the form of appendices, foot notes, audio cassettes, video cassettes, his old news bulletins called Muslim Perspective and Submitters Perspective, information in the memory of his friends, and a book written by Khalifa’s own hand but later attributed to Allah, in the name of final testament in which most of Quran verses are misinterpreted, mishandled, and mis-claimed, which can be easily recognized when anyone compare it with any other classical or contemporary translations of Quran but comparative study is banned in their centers’ except for occasional reference i.e eyewash studies!

If you want to go through some of his famous hadiths kindly see the list below and for sure you can’t find any proofs from Quran for his hadiths but almost all his hadiths are well supported by his other hadiths, prejudice conclusions, personal opinions, conjectures, assumptions and fabrications!

This is a sample of technique, which Khalifa used to twist the meaning of various parts of Quran and gave misinterpretations for various verses and a few samples are listed below:

1) Untill the age of 40 if death reaches somebody he would directly go to heaven!

2)   A rich believer is better than a poor believer!

3)   Number-19 is a great miracle!

4)   Cutting the hand of a thief is a satanic practice!

5)   Abraham (p) was deceived by Satan to kill his son in the name of sacrifice!

6)   One may be a Muslim Jew, a Muslim Christian, a Muslim Hindu, a Muslim Buddhist, or Muslim Muslim.

7)   The existing religions, including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are severely corrupted and will simply die out.

8)   Verses 9:128-129 doesn’t belong to Quran but they belong to Satan.

9)   If you have headaches, financial problems, health problems, marital problems, any kind of problems, which means you’re in Satan’s kingdom. In God’s kingdom, you will not get any diseases (such as AIDS, or Cancer) or lose an arm, a leg or a finger, etc. You will have to examine your own life.

10)  The Quranic accounts related to appointing Satan as a temporary “god confirm the previous scripture.

11) Muhammad was even prohibited by Allah from explaining the Quran! The Prophet’s sole mission was to deliver Quran.

12) The end of the world will happen during 2280!

Anyone who believes in Quran would never accept Khalifa as a good believer in Allah and Quran for the following major reasons:

1)   He has continuously claimed that he and his idol ‘number-19’ are the authorities or the take-carers who preserved and protected the Quran using his numerology calculations, and indirectly claimed that Allah [SWTA] has failed in keeping up his promise {Navudu Billah} of preserving and protecting the Quran in the past and in the future.

  2)   Instead of asking the believers to trust in Allah [SWTA] regarding His promise of protection of the Quran, Khalifa portrayed himself as the protector of Quran and thrown away on his back the multiple verses which guaranties the protection of the Quran by Allah [SWTA]!

  3)   Even-though he has claimed that the hadiths are satanic innovations he himself used it for most of his theories including the 19-theory!

  4)   Saying the Quran is fully detailed but while explaining Quran instead of using the Quran alone, he used bible {Kindly Note: Khalifa himself has proclaimed that previous scriptures were afflicted with severe distortions}, hadiths, daily news papers, his own personal views, etc.

  5)   When Allah Himself attested that He has pleased with the companions of Muhammad the messenger of Allah {P} and they (companions) are pleased with Allah but for khalifa’s eyes they were found as hypocrites! 


    As per the poisonous proclamation of Khalifa, Prophet Muhammad’s [P] associates have manipulated the Quran with false verses {NavuduBillah}. 


    Kindly see Allah [SWTA]’S proclamation about Prophet Muhammad’s [PBUH] associates:

[48:18] “Allah was well pleased with the believers when they swore allegiance unto thee beneath the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down peace of reassurance on them, and hath rewarded them with a near victory”

[9:100] “And the first to lead the way, of the Muhajirin and the Ansar, and those who followed them in goodness – Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him, and He hath made ready for them Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. That is the supreme triumph.”

[48:29] Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers – so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward.”

[3:110]You are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book had faith, it was best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.”

Anyone who trust in Khalifa’s Hadiths and reject Allah [SWTA]’s claim that He has protected the Quran in the past and in the future, then the question of Satan would be ‘how many other verses in Quran are inserted by Prophet’s companions?! On the other-hand kindly have a glimpse on what was the status of prophet’s companions in the sight of Allah [SWTA]:

  1)   Refer 48:18 “Allah was well pleased with them… and He knew what was in their hearts…” 

  2)   Refer 9:100 “…Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him, and He hath made ready for them Gardens…”

  3)   Refer 48:29 “…Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers – so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers…”

  4)   Refer 3:110 “You are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God…” 

But Khalifa has greatly differs with the view of Allah [SWTA] about prophet’s companions, and proclaimed that they have inserted two satanic verses in to the Quran based on their extreme love on Prophet Muhammad (p)! 

Trust and believe in Allah [SWTA]’s words and promises and do not follow the footsteps of Satan, kindly remember how he has driven our father Adam (P) from the heaven with his tricky words the same way Khalifa wants to drive us out of Allah [SWTA]’s religion-Islam, the only religion accepted with Allah [SWTA].

Following verses may well remind you and warn you and exhort you and save you from all Khalifa-satanic traps:

[2:208] “O you who believe, enter perfectly in Islam and follow not the footsteps of Satan. Verily! He is to you a plain enemy.” 

[24:21] “O you who believe, follow not the footsteps of Satan. And whosoever follows the footsteps of Satan, then, verily he commands to commit indecency and disbelief. And had it not been for the Grace of Allah and His Mercy on you, not one of you would ever have been pure from sins. But Allah purifies whom He wills, and Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” 

[43:36-37] “Anyone who disregards the remembrance [Dikr- the Quran] of the Most Gracious, We appoint for him a Shaitan, so he becomes his associateSatan will prevent them from the right path while they think that they have the right guidance.” 

The following verse confirms that Khalifa’s followers disbelieved in Allah’s promise of protection for Quran but they believed in their religious leader or scholar-Khalifa (that was how he has portrayed himself until late 1989 -until he claimed the alleged messenger-ship):

[9:31] “They (unconditionally) obeyed the rabbis and the monks and worshipped the Messiah, son of Mary, as they should have obeyed God. They were commanded to worship no one besides God who is the only God and who is too exalted to be considered equal to any idols.”       

Start from the publication of book “Miracle of the Quran: Significance of the Mysterious Alphabets, Islamic Productions, St. Louis, Missouri, in 1973, until his book titled QURAN: THE FINAL SCRIPTURE (ISBN 0-934894-19-1) published in 1981, he was challenging the whole world continuously with a term “irrefutable” claiming that Quran is completely and mathematically protected from a single change,!

Also recall during 1981 in his book QURAN: THE FINAL SCRIPTURE, verses 9:128-129 were included and he also wrote a footnote for 9:128, justifying the usage of term “Raheem” for the prophet, still he was able to make up his 19 calculations!

Kindly see what Allah [SWTA] promises about the protection of Quran:

[15:9] “Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an {Zikr} and indeed, We will be its guardian.”                                                                                                                                 [Kindly note that Allah doesn’t say 19-will be its guardian but Allah [SWTA] says He will be its guardian]

[75:16-17] “Move not your tongue with it, to hasten with recitation of the Qur’an. Indeed, upon Us is its collection and its recitation.”                                                                       [Kindly note what Khalifa says; while Quran was collected 2-verses were inserted into it]

[18:27] And recite what has been revealed to you of the book of your Lord. None can change His Words, and none will you find as a refuge other than Him.”                                 [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been altered by prophet’s friends]

[2:2-3] “This is the Book about which there is no doubt, guidance for those conscious of Allah, Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them.”                                                                                                                                   [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that 9:128-129, were always suspected i.e. they were doubtful]

[6:34] “And certainly were messengers denied before you, but they were patient over [the effects of] denial, and they were harmed until Our victory came to them. And none can alter the words of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the messengers.”                                                                                                                             [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been altered by prophet’s friends]

[6:115] “And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.”                            

[Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been altered by prophet’s friends]

[10:37] “And this Qur’an is not such as could ever be produced by other than Allah, but it is a confirmation of, which was before it, and a full explanation of the book-wherein there is no doubt – from the Lord of the Universe”.                      

[Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that 9:128-129, were always suspect]

[12:111] “In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It {Quran} is not a narrative which could be forged, but a confirmation of what is before it, and a distinct explanation of all things, and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe.”                        

[Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been forged by prophet’s friends]

[41-42] “No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all Praise.”                                                        

[Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that in the past it has been corrupted by prophet’s friends and in the future it has been restored as correct by Khalifa]

When Khalifa proclaimed that the Quran have been corrupted, people took two standard; Khalifa’s ardent followers believed in him but the true believers put their trust in Allah and his words, unfortunately none of the Khalifa’s ardent followers referred the Quran for what it says about difference of opinions as mentioned in the verse below!:

[16: 64] “And We have not revealed to you the Book, [O Muhammad], except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.”

Once Again the followers of Khalifa don’t trust in Allah [SWTA] but they do trust in their religious leader or scholar Khalifa as the following verse points out:

[9:31] “They (unconditionally) obeyed the rabbis and the monks and worshiped the Messiah, son of Mary, as they should have obeyed God. They were commanded to worship no one besides God who is the only God and who is too exalted to be considered equal to any idols.”

Chapter-4

‘Khalifa’s Claim of Messenger-Ship’ as the ‘Messenger of Covenant’

Based on Quran verses 3:81 and 33:07, Rashad claimed that he is one of the messengers of Allah and that too he is the messenger of the covenant. In-order to enable comparisons and discussions let us see verses 33:7 & 33:8 as well as verses 3:81 & 3:82.

[33:07, 8] “And [mention, O Muhammad], when We took from the prophets their covenant and from you (O Muhammad) and from Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus, the son of Mary; and We took from them a solemn covenant. That He may question the truthful about their truth. And He has prepared for the disbelievers a painful punishment.”

[3:81, 82] “And [recall], when Allah took the covenant of the prophets, [saying], “Whatever I give you of the Scripture and wisdom and then there comes to you a messenger confirming what is with you, you [must] believe in him and support him.” [Allah] said, “Have you acknowledged and taken upon that My commitment?” They said, “We have acknowledged it.” He said, “Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.” And whoever turned away after that – they were the defiantly disobedient.”

Let us compare and discuss the phrases and clauses used in 3:81 & 33:7.

Comparison of the Phrases and Clauses used in verses 3:81 and 33:7

The reason for comparing these two verses is because khalifa claimed that both the verses talks about a same matter i.e. about the possibility of a messenger yet to come after Muhammad [PBUH]!

The Phrase/clause used The status of the phrase/clause in verse 3:81 The status of the phrase/clause in verse 33:7
1.Including  you (O Muhammad) Absent Present
2.A messenger to come afterwards & to testify all existing scriptures Present Absent

1) Including you (O Muhammad) is absent in 3:81 but A messenger to come afterwards and to testify all existing scriptures is Present in 3:81.

2) A messenger to come afterwards and to testify all existing scriptures is absent in 33:7 but including you (O Muhammad) is present in 33:07.

3) Verse no 33:7 includes the phrase “Including you (Muhammad)”and it does not contain the clause “A messenger to come afterwards and to testify all existing scriptures”. Therefore the covenant cited in 33:7 is applicable to Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] also.

4) Therefore covenant mentioned in 33:7 is not about a messenger to come afterwards but about questioning the truthful about their truthfulness (33:8) and to question the messengers and those who received the message (7:6).

[7:6)] “Then surely, We shall question those (people) to whom it (the book) was sent and verily, We shall question the Messengers.”

But verse No. 3:81 excludes the phrase “Including you (Muhammad)” and includes the clause “A messenger to come afterwards and to testify all existing scriptures”.

5) Therefore the covenant in 3:81 is applicable to all prophets excluding Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as he was foretold by Prophet Jesus in 61:6.

[61:6] And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

The covenant of the messenger-ship was fulfilled and completed as per verses 6:92, 3:3, 5:48, 35:31, and 7:157 by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). As Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the messenger for the whole universe [Universal Messenger], and for the whole mankind, we can very well understand that no-more new messenger is going to arrive based on the following Quran verses:

[16:44] “With clear signs and books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you the reminder, that you may explain clearly to mankind what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought.”

[14:1] Alif Lam Ra, This is a Book which WE have revealed to thee that thou may bring mankind out of the depths of darkness into light, by the command of their Lord, to the path of the Mighty, the Praiseworthy.”

[25:1] “Blessed is He who sent down the Criterion upon His Servant that he may be to the universe [] a warner.”

[21:107] “And We did not send you (O Muhammad) except as a Mercy to the universe [لِّلْعَالَمِينَ].”

[34:28] “And We have not sent you except comprehensively to mankind as a bringer of good tidings and a Warner. But most of the people do not know.”

[22:49] “Say, ‘O Mankind, I am but a plain Warner to you’.”

[6:19] “And this Qur’an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches”.

[7:158] Say, “O mankind, indeed Is that the scripture Quran, which testifies all existing scriptures or the misinterpretations given for Quran by Rashad khalifa that testify all the existing scriptures?! We find the scripture Quran has already testified all the existing scriptures; Kindly see Quran verses 6:92, 7:156-157, 12:111, 2:41, 5-48, 4:47, 2-101, 6:92, 2:97, 2:91, 3:3, 2:101, 2:89, 5:48, 46:30, 46:12, 35:31, 2:41, 5:48, etc.

[6:92] And this is a Book which We have sent down, blessed and confirming what was before it, that you may warn the Mother of Cities and those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are maintaining their prayers.

[3:3-4] “[It is] He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur’an) to you with truth, confirming what came before it. And he sent down the Torah and the Injeel. Aforetime, as a guidance to mankind, And He sent down the Furqaan (The Criterion-this Qur’an)].”

[5:48] “And We have revealed to you, the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it…”

[2:41] “And believe in that which I reveal, confirming that which ye possess already (of the Scripture), and be not first to disbelieve therein, and part not with My revelations for a trifling price, and keep your duty unto Me.”

[35:31] And that which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], of the Book is the truth, confirming what was before it. Indeed, Allah, of His servants, is Acquainted and Seeing.

[46:12] “And before this was the Scripture of Musa as a guide and a mercy. And this is a confirming book in the Arabic language, to warn those who do wrong, and as glad tidings to the good-doers.”

[46:30] “They said: “O our people! Verily, we have heard a book (this Qur’an) sent down after Musa, confirming what came before it: it guides to the truth and to the Straight Path.”

[5:48] “To you We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which you dispute.”

[2:89] “And when there came to them, a book (this Qur’an) from Allah confirming what is with them, although aforetime they had invoked Allah in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then when there came to them that which they had recognised, they disbelieved in it. So let the Curse of Allah be on the disbelievers.”

[2:101And when there came to them a Messenger from Allah confirming what was with them, a party of those who were given the Scripture threw away the book of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know!

[3:3] “It is He Who has sent down the book to you with truth, confirming what came before it. And He sent down the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).”

[2:91] And when it is said to them (the Jews), “Believe in what Allah has sent down,” they say, “We believe in what was sent down to us.” And they disbelieve in that which came after it, while it is the truth confirming what is with them. Say “Why then have you killed the Prophets of Allah aforetime, if you indeed have been believers?”

[2:97] “Say: “Whoever is an enemy to Jibril (Gabriel) (let him die in his fury), for indeed he has brought it (this Qur’an) down to your heart by Allah’s Permission, confirming what came before it and guidance and glad tidings for the believers.”


[6:92]  And this is a blessed book which We have sent down, confirming, which came before it, so that you may warn the Mother of Towns and all those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are constant in guarding their Salat.

[2:101] And when there came to them a Messenger from Allah confirming what was with them, a party of those who were given the Scripture threw away the Book of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know!

[4:47] O ye People of the Book! believe in what We have (now) revealed, confirming what was with you, before We change the face and fame of some (of you) beyond all recognition, and turn them backwards, or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers, for the decision of Allah Must be carried out.”

[5-48] “And We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, confirming what is before it of the Book and a guardian over it, therefore judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their low desires (to turn away) from the truth that has come to you; for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way, and if Allah had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you), so He will let you know that in which you differed.

[12:111] “In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It {Quran} is not a narrative which could be forged, but a confirmation of what is before it, and a distinct explanation of all things, and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe.”

[2:41] “And believe in what I reveal, confirming the revelation which is with you, and be not the first to reject Faith therein, nor sell My Signs for a small price; and fear Me, and Me alone.”

[7:157] “Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they, who have believed in him, honoured him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful.”

Note: As Allah [SWTA] knew the past and future, he has well clarified that the term ‘Messenger’, which was anonymous used throughout the Quran directly relates to Prophet Muhammad through the verse 7:157!

As many fake messengers are going to arrive after Prophet Muhammad (P), Allah [SWTA] has clarified in 7:157 that the anonymous usage or application of the term ‘Messenger’ in Quran points straight to the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in the Torah and the Gospel i.e Prophet Muhammad (P)!

It is well understandable that if Quran is testifying all the existing scriptures, which naturally and eventually points out Prophet Muhammad (P) as the Messenger of the covenant, who has testified all the existing scriptures as mentioned in 3:81. The following verses well confirm the truth that Prophet Muhammad (P) is the Messenger of the covenant who was well expected by the people of the scripture:

[2:146] “Those whom We have given the Book recognize him as they recognize their sons. And a party of them surely conceal the truth while they know.”

[6:20] “Those to whom WE gave the Book recognize him as they recognize their sons. But those who ruin their souls – they will not believe.”

[5:15] “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and pass over much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light and a plainbook.”

[7:156-157] “…and My mercy encompasses all things; so I will ordain it (specially) for those who are pious and give Zakah (Obligatory Charity), and those who believe in Our Ayaat. Those who follow the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Injeel (who) enjoins them good and forbids them evil, and makes lawful to them the good things and makes unlawful to them impure things, and removes from the their burden and the shackles which were upon them; so (as for) those who believe in him and honor him and help him, and follow the light which has been sent down with him, these it is that are the successful.”

[28:52-54] “Those to whom We gave the Scripture before it, – they believe in this. And when it is recited to them, they say: ‘We believe in it. Verily, it is the truth from our Lord. Indeed even before this we were Muslims. These will be given their reward twice over, because they are patient, and repel evil with good, and spend out of what We have provided them.”

In an attempt to deceit the innocents that the crucial verses those talks about Muhammad [PBUH] in Quran are the verses really talks about Khalifa, he himself discovered a lot of calculations, which are not mathemathical miracles or proofs but they are mere humbug numerology as listed below:


1) For the verse number 5:19 Khalifa add the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725, Surah number-5, verse number-19, therefore the total value is 1254, which is divisible by 19 i.e {19*66} and this calculation is shown by Khalifa to prove that he is the messenger of Allah dealt in this verse. The same way he tried to misinterpret all the other verses listed below! Most of the deceitful calculations are not listed below in-order to save the readers time!


2) For the verse number 3:81 he wants to add the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725, plus only the verse number [but not the Surah number] to derive the total value of 1311, which is divisible by 19 i.e {19*69}.


3) For the verse number 28:44 he has added the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725, plus only the verse number [but not the Surah number] to derive the total value of 123044?! But how come 505+725+44=123044?! i.e. you need to add 505+725=1230 and just put the verse number-44 aside the value of 1230 therefore you can derive the value123044 which is now divisible by 19 i.e {19*6476}!


4) For the verse number 17:93 he has added the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725 in a different way i.e. putting the values aside 505725, and added only the verse number-93 [but not the Surah number here] to derive a total of 505725+93=505818, which is now divisible by 19 i.e. {19*26622}!


5) For the verse number 13:38 he place the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725 aside, additionally Surah number-13, particular verse number-38 and the verse number of the previous verse-37 all to be placed aside as shown here: 505725133738, as it is divisible by nineteen i.e. {19*26617112302}!


6) For the verse number 9:33 he put the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725 aside, additionally he insist to place the Surah number and the verse number aside i.e. 505725933, moreover he insist to place aside the values of verse 6:19 with the above value as 505725933619 in-order for it to be multiplied by nineteen i.e. {19*26617154401}!


7) For the verse number 36:3 he add the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725, plus Surah and verse number together to get the value of 1269 [i.e. 505+725+36+3] but as it is not divisible by nineteen he further insist to add the gematrical value of the phrase used in verse 36:3, which is 612! Therefore he gets a final value of 1269+612=1881, so that now it is very well adjusted to be divided by number nineteen i.e. {19*99}!


8) For the verse number 44:13 he advice to ignore the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725, as it is not going to help in deriving a value that is divisible by nineteen so that he insist to add only the Surah and verse number to derive the total of 44+13=57, which is divisible by nineteen i.e. 19*3!


9) For the verse number 72:27 he advice to add-up the gematrical values of Rashad=505, Khalifa=725, plus Surah number-72 but not the specific verse {verse-27} that he wants to point-out as a proof of his messengership because it can’t derive a total that is divisible by nineteen! Instead he wants to add-up the ‘number value’ of the next verse i.e. verse-28. Therefore 505+725+72+28=1330, this is now divisible by number nineteen i.e. 19*70!

No doubt that millions of fake messengers can prove themselves as true messengers based on the Criteria listed above! Following verse is more crucial in this context:

[31:6-7] “Some people pay for meaningless narrations to draw others attention away from the Quran without knowledge and treat as a matter of fun. They will suffer a humiliating torment. And when Our Verses are recited to such a one, he turns away in pride, as if he heard them not, as if there were deafness in his ear. So announce to him a painful torment.”

Chapter-5

Crazy claim of Khalifa about “the role of explaining Al-Quran”

Kindly see the Muslim Perspective April 1989, which says “the sole mission of the Prophet Muhammad (P) was to deliver the Quran”. It further says the Prophet was forbidden in 75:16-19 from explaining the Quran! Addionally it says Khalifates have learnt from 55:1-2 that God is the only explainer of the Quran!

Prayer was itself for teaching but not for just delivering the scripture!                               Allah [SWTA] has clearly revealed the prayer of Abraham (P) seeking for a messenger to arrive among his descendants and that prayer was not only just to recite Allah’s revelations like a deliverer but also to teach them the scripture and wisdom!

If you are a teacher working in a school and if you start reading the text books in the classrooms without explaining anything to the students and if you claim that you have taught everything to the students, then either you would be considered as mad or the discoverer of this new ideology [i.e teaching means not explaining anything] Dr. Khalifa would be considered as mad!

Let us view Abraham’s (P) prayer:                                                                                                     [2:129)] Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto them Your Verses and teach them the book and Al-Hikmah, and purify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”

Answer of Allah [SWTA] for the prayer of Abraham (P):                                                           [2:151] Similarly, We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Verses and purifying you, and teaching you the book and the Hikmah, and teaching you that which you used not to know.

Kindly note down the valuable information here and that is Dr. Khalifa was saying that already all religious duties were well established by Abraham (P) and nothing was new that has been brought by Muhammad (P) from his Lord!

But Allah has clearly mentioned that “teaching you that which you used not to know” in 2:151 clarifying that the form of Worship Practises which were brought by Prophet Muhammad (P) was not known by the Arabs of his time.

Also Khalifa’s ideology [i.e. already religious rituals has been brought by Abraham (P) therefore Prophet Muhammad (P) doesn’t brought anything new or even if he has brought something new that cannot be crucial as it was already there before Muhammad (P)] is not Quranic because not only Prophet Abraham (P) but all the messengers have been blessed with religious rituals which are differ from one messenger to another.

Kindly see the following verse, which confirms that religious rituals were different from one messenger to another:

[22:67] “For every religion We have appointed rites which they perform. So, let the disbelievers not contend with you over the matter but invite them to your Lord. Indeed, you are upon straight guidance.”

Also kindly see the following verse, which confirms Abraham (P) has received scripture: [87:19] “The scriptures of Abraham and Moses.”

But we have been commanded to follow the scripture given to Muhammad (p) but not the scripture given to Abraham (P)!  The old scriptures are limited to a particular period and Allah [SWTA] has made them to disappear from the state of how it was originally revealed.

The set of Ayaths which has been twisted by Khalifates:                                                            Kindly find below the set of verses, which has been twisted by Khalifates ‘In-order to prove that already all religious duties were well established by Abraham (P), therefore Prophet Muhammad (P) doesn’t brought anything new or even if he has brought something from his Lord that cannot be crucial as it was already there before Muhammad (P)’, are listed below:

  • [2:135] “And they say: Be Jews or Christians, then ye will be rightly guided. Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Nay, but (we follow) the religion of Abraham, the upright, and he was not of the idolaters.”
  • [3:67] Abraham was neither a “Jew” nor a “Christian”, but was one who turned away from all that is false, having surrendered himself unto God; and he was not of those who ascribe divinity to aught beside Him.
  • [3:95] Say: Allah speaketh truth. So follow the religion of Abraham, the upright. He was not of the idolaters.
  • [4:125]Who can be better in religion than one who submits his face to Allah and he is a good-doer, and follows the religion of Abraham, Islamic Monotheism? And Allah did take Abraham as an intimate friend.
  • [16:123] “Then We revealed to thee: Follow the religion of Abraham, the upright one; and he was not of the polytheists.”
  • [6:161] Say, ‘My Lord has guided me unto a straight path – the right religion, the religion of Abraham, the upright. And he was not of those who associated gods with ALLAH.

By showing the above list of verses, Khalifates argue that even Muhammad was commanded to follow the religion of Abraham [p]; therefore the prophet-hood or messenger-ship of Muhammad (P) was just to deliver the Quran and follow the religion of Abraham, but nothing crucial!

Our first question: While Khalifates’ are claiming that the history of prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran (P) are not protected but corrupted, from where did they get a purified history and scripture of Abraham who lived several thousand years before Prophet Muhammad (P), in-order to refer and follow the religious rituals followed by Abraham?

Our second question: If you claim that the religious rituals followed by Abraham are exactly the same as what prophet Muhammad has followed and they are well established from Abraham till today then how come they are not found practised anywhere else except among the followers of Muhammad (P) (i.e not among Christians or Jews)!

Our Arguement-1: As per verse ‘22:67’ which we have seen above confirms that religious rituals differs from one messenger to another, therefore eventhough prophet Abraham might have followed the religious duties which we are following today it doesn’t mean the rituals are exactly the same!

Our Arguement-2: If we consider that Abraham (P) might have followed exactly the same rituals which we are observing today, then we can be sure that they were corrupted after Abraham (P) and therefore it has been given back to the believers by Allah [SWTA] through Prophet Muhammad [P]. Following verse confirming these arguments:

Religious rituals followed in Kaaba before Prophet Muhammad [P]:                                   [8:35] “Their Salat (prayer) at the House (of Allah, i.e. the Ka’bah at Makkah) was nothing but whistling and clapping of hands. Therefore taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve.”

Khalifa tried all his best to misinterpret and blackout the meaning of the above verse-8:35 [which is a Mukkamath verse!], in-order to establish his personal views about the rituals followed by Arabs during the era of Prophet Muhammad!                                                                                             

Do you have a puzzle about from where did the Mecca pagans have imported the clapping of hands as an act of worship? You may well know the history of Mecca pagans who did trade with the neighborhood Christian countries; possibly from there they might have imported the clapping of hands as an act of worship!                                                                                       

Not only the Christians of all times do practice the clapping of hands as an act of worship but there are also biblical precedents for the same:                                                                               

Psalms 47:1 “Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.”


Psalms 98:8 “Let the rivers clap their hands; let the mountains sing together for joy.”


2 Kings 11:12 – “And he brought forth the king’s son, and put the crown upon him, and [gave him] the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, God save the king.”

Khalifates cleverly blackout the following verse which confirms that the ideology of Abraham [P] which is the real guidance and blessing of Allah [SWTA] i.e. monotheism has been re-established by Prophet Muhammad [P] as per Allah’s will and command:

[3:68] Lo! Those of mankind who have the best claim to Abraham are those who followed him, and this Prophet and those who believe (with him); and Allah is the Protecting Guardian of the believers.”


If you verify all the verses listed above [i.e 2:135, 3:67, 3:95, 4:125, 16:123, 6:161], and if you could verify its contexts, you can very well find that the term ‘follow the religion of Abraham’ means it directly points out to follow “monotheism” challenging the people of the book who were closer to polytheism during the era of Muhammad (P), but it doesn’t ask us to follow the rituals followed by Abraham (P), who lived several thousand years before Muhammad (P)!


Another important comparison has to be done here between three different verses and they are 2:128, 2:129, and 2:151:


Abraham not only prayed for a messenger to be raised among his descendants but also prayed for showing them (the descendants) their rituals!              


[2:128] Our Lord! And make us submissive unto Thee and of our seed a nation submissive unto Thee, and show us our ways of worship, and relent toward us. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Relenting, the Merciful.


Abraham’s (P) prayer for teaching his descendants the scripture and wisdom:   

[2:129)] Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto them Your Verses and teach them the book and Al-Hikmah, and purify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”


Answers of Allah [SWTA] for the prayer of Abraham (P)                                   

[2:151] Similarly, We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Verses and purifying you, and teaching you the book and the Hikmah, and teaching you that which you used not to know.


The above comparison confirms that when there was already the scripture of Abraham exists, Abraham (P) has not only prayed for a deliverer of a new scripture for his descendants, but he do prayed for sending a messenger to teach them scripture, wisdom, and the ways of performing their worship!


Allah has replied that he has sent Muhammad (P) for teaching Abraham’s descendants the book and the Wisdom and teaching them that which they never knew!


The above comparison has confirmed that all the arguments of Khalifa are nothing but his personal opinions and they are not based on Quran! For further confirmation kindly look into the following verses, which also confirms that the form of Worship Practises, which were brought by Prophet Muhammad (P) was not known by the Arabs of his time:

[2:239] ‘And if you fear (an enemy), perform Salat (pray) on foot or riding. And when you are in safety, offer the Salat (prayer) in the manner He has taught you, which you knew not (before).’                                                                                                        


He taught you what you never knew’, means the Arabs during that period never knew the religious rituals before the arrival of Muhammad (P)!                                   


Have you got the crucial point in comparison?! The same term, which is used in verse number – ‘2:151’ has been used in 2:239! I.e. in 2:239 Allah informs that ‘offer the Salat (prayer) in the manner He has taught you, which you knew not (before).’ 


And in 2:151 Allah [SWTA] confirms that He has taught us things which we never knew before, through the messenger that he has sent now;

{2:151} ‘Similarly, We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Verses and purifying you, and teaching you the book and the Hikmah, and teaching you that which you used not to know’.

Another valuable point has to be noted down here and it is; even-though Allah [SWTA] has mentioned that ‘He taught us the Salat in 2:239’ but actually Allah [SWTA] has not directly taught us how to do it in the Quran but has inspired his prophet to demonstrate it, except for some basic information about Salat have been mentioned in Quran here and there in a scattered way. 


This is because it is not Allah [SWTA] to write a book on Salat or visit earth to demonstrate it but the roles and responsibilities of establishing the Salat had been given to the Messenger of Allah, the unlettered Prophet!

The same way when it is coming to Expaining Quran, Allah has given explanation for many things in the Quran but the actual role and responsibility of explaining the Quran has been entrusted to Prophet Muhammad as part of his mission, to be accomplished.

Kindly note that in the answer of Allah [SWTA]-2:151– for the prayer of Abraham (P), which clearly confirms that the Messenger is not just a deliverer of the scripture but acts as an explaining authority of Quran among the believers! Kindly see the list of verses given below clearly states that the role of Prophet Muhammad (P) was not just delivering i.e. just reciting the verses of Allah to the believers but to explain it as well.

We can realize that Allah [SWTA] has commanded his Prophet to accomplish the role of explaining the Quran through the following verses:

[16:44] “With clear signs and books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you the reminder, that you may explain clearly to mankind what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought.”

[16:64] “And We have not sent down the book (the Qur’an) to you, except that you may explain clearly unto them those things in which they differ, and (as) a guidance and a mercy for a folk who believe.”

[62:2] “He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them, and teaching them the book and Al-Hikmah. And verily, they had been before in manifest error.”

[5:19] “O followers of the Book! indeed Our Messenger has come to you explaining to you after a pause of the Messengers, lest you say: There came not to us a giver of good news or a warner, so indeed there has come to you a giver of good news and a warner; and Allah has power over all things.”

[5:15] “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and pass over much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light and a plain-book.”

[2:129] “Our Lord, Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto them Your Verses and teach them the book and Al-Hikmah, and purify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”

[2:151] Similarly, We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Verses and purifying you, and teaching you the book and the Hikmah, and teaching you that which you used not to know.

Now let us come to the arguments of Khalifa about explaining the Quran: 

Let us view the verses 75:16-19 to find out does the prophet has been forbidden from explaining the Quran?!

[75:16] “Do not move your tongue too quickly to recite the Quran.”

[75:17] “We shall be responsible for its collection and its recitation.”

[75:18] “When We recite it, follow its recitation.”

[75:19] “We shall be responsible for its explanation.”

Verse 75:19 only says: “We shall be responsible for its explanation” but it don’t say that the Prophet has been forbidden from explaining the Quran!

If we consider the misinterpretation of Khalifa and conclude that Prophet has been forbidden from explaining the Quran based on 75:19 then we would also need to end up with a conclusion that prophet has been prohibited from reciting and collecting the Quran based on verse [75:17] which says “We shall be responsible for its collection and its recitation.”

Therefore compare [75:19] “We shall be responsible for its explanation” and [75:17] “We shall be responsible for its collection and its recitation!”

Muslim Perspective ‘April-1989’ additionally says that the Khalifates have learnt from 55:1-2 that God is the only explainer of the Quran! Let us view those verses to find out if there is any truth in Khalifa’s arguement:

[55:1] “The Most Merciful [55:1] Taught the Qur’an”.

Nobody has the second thought that Allah has taught the Quran but when it comes to the question ‘to whom Allah has taught the Quran and who would teach us the Quran?’ Quran very well explains it as below:

 that you may explain clearly to mankind what is sent down to them… [16:44]

[16:64] “And We have not sent down the book (the Qur’an) to you, except that you may explain clearly unto them those things in which they differ…

[62:2] “He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them, and teaching them the book and Al-Hikmah

[5:19] “O followers of the Book! Indeed Our Messenger has come to you explaining to you after a pause of the Messengers…

[5:15] “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture…

[2:129] “Our Lord, Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto them Your Verses and teach them the book and Al-Hikmah, and purify them…

[2:151] Similarly, We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Verses and purifying you, and teaching you the book and the Hikmah, and teaching you that which you used not to know.

Before we could conclude this chapter let us cite few examples to understand the role of explaining, with the verse [5:6]:

[5:6] O ye who believe! When ye rise up for prayer, wash you faces, and your hands up to the elbows, and lightly rub your heads and (wash) your feet up to the ankles. And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it. Allah would not place a burden on you, but He would purify you and would perfect His grace upon you, that ye may give thanks.”

Now when it comes to ablution Quran says wash your face and here comes the deal! When I wash my face by-default the dust in my eyes [which is in my face] get cleaned but the dirty in the nose or mouth doesn’t get cleaned eventhough both the organs are located in my face!

Is that the right way of obeying the order of Al-Mighty? Also the same verse 5:6 says ‘rub your heads’, now I have a reasonable question here and that is whether to clean the ears as well or to leave the ears unclean? Remember the ears are located in the same organ i.e head-which we are, suppose to clean during our ablution!

The same way in the same verse 5:6 it has been mentioned that the neccessity for taking bath before performing our prayers are two! 1) If one of us come out from the closet, 2) if anyone have had contact with women!

Also see verse 4-43 says we need to take bath if we come out of the closet: [4-43] “O ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when ye are drunk, till ye know that which ye utter, nor when ye are polluted, save when journeying upon the road, till ye have bathed. And if ye be ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have touched women, and ye find not water, then go to high clean soil and rub your faces and your hands (therewith). Lo! Allah is Benign, Forgiving”

Is that mandatory to take bath every-time after we complete the process of evacuation?! Who would explain whether nose and mouth should be included in ablution as they are parts of the face and whether ears should be included in the ablution as they are parts of our head, or those have to be neglected and ignored from cleaning?

May be if Khalifa is alive he may come-up with a new calcualtion saying the same verse number match with that verse and that same sura number match with some other criteria so that such parts have to be included or omitted and the blind followers of Khalifa might have proclaimed it as a mathematical miracle!

Once more the above comparisons, discussions, explanations may confirm that all the arguments of Khalifa about the role of explaining the Quran, are nothing but his personal opinions but not based on Quran!

Finally read the following verses and judge yourself:                                                                  [4:61] “When the (hypocrites) are told to refer to God’s revelations and to the Messenger, they try to find excuses to stay away from you (Muhammad).”

[4: 115] “But if anyone opposes the Messenger[MU HAMMED] AFTER THE GUIDANCE  has become clear to him, and follows a path other than that of the believers, We will hand him over to whatever he has turned to, and We will roast him in Hell. What an evil destination!”

Chapter-6

THE FINAL MESSENGERSHIP!?

Based on verse 33:40 Khalifa claimed that Muhammad is only the last prophet but not the last messenger! Let us view the same verse:

[33:40] “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things.”

Regarding the above verse, Khalifates raise a question; why did Allah has not mentioned Muhammad [PBUH] as last messenger over here, but has mentioned only as the last prophet?!

By viewing the above argument we can easily understand their limited knowledge when it comes to Quran! We can see that both humans and Angels are mentioned as messengers in Quran but only the humans have been mentioned as prophets in the Quran. Therefore mentioning as last messenger wouldn’t make any sense when we view the following verses:

Both Angels and Humans are Allah’s Messengers

In-order to know that both angels and humans are Allah’s messengers kindly view the following verse:

[22:75] “Allah chooses Messengers from both angels and human beings. God is All-hearing and All-aware.”

Also see what Allah says about Angels in the following verses:

[11:69] “There came Our messengers to Abraham with glad tidings. They said, “Peace!” He answered, “Peace!” and hastened to entertain them with a roasted calf.”

[11:77] “When Our messengers came to Lot, he was grieved on their account and felt himself powerless (to protect) them. He said: “This is a distressful day.”

[11:81] (The Messengers) said: “O Lot! We are Messengers from thy Lord! By no means shall they reach thee! Now travel with thy family while yet a part of the night remains, and let not any of you look back: but thy wife (will remain behind): To her will happen what happens to the people. Morning is their time appointed: Is not the morning nigh?”

[6:61] He is the irresistible, (watching) from above over His worshippers, and He sets guardians over you. At length, when death approaches one of you, Our messengers take his soul, and they never fail in their duty.

[7:37] “Who are more unjust than those who invent falsehoods against God and reject His revelations? These will have their share which is ordained for them and when Our Messengers come to them to cause them to die and ask them, “Where are those whom you had been worshipping besides Allah?” they will reply, “We had gone astray from the path of God.” Thus, they will testify against their own souls by confessing their disbelief.”

[10:21] “When people are granted mercy after having suffered hardship, they begin to plot against Our signs. Say, Allah is most swift in His plans. Our messengers record all that you plot.”

[15:57] “He said, O Messengers, what is your task?”.

[19:19] “He said: I am only a messenger of thy Lord that I may bestow on thee a faultless son.”

Therefore as messengers are sent from both humans and angels, but only humans are sent as prophets, we could very well expect the phrase “last prophet but not the phrase last messenger in [33:40]” as messengers {Angels} are continuously coming and executing various tasks as quoted in the above Quran verses.

Another verse that has been quoted by Khalifa and his followers to prove that Muhammad (P) is not the last messenger, which is given below:

[40:34] “Joseph came to you before with illustrious evidence but you still have doubts about what he brought. When he passed away, you said, “God will never send any Messenger after him.” Thus does God causes to go astray the skeptical transgressing people.”

Now let us discuss about the verse “40:34”

Where this verse says that Prophet Muhammad is not the last messenger! Is this a verse where it says that messengers are yet to come after Muhammad (P)! No-where, no way! This verse explaining the situation during and after Joseph’s (p) lifetime! We all knew that after Joseph a lot of messengers has arrived but is there is any verse that says after Muhammad (P) there are any more messengers yet to come? This is a same technique, which Khalifa used to twist the meaning of various parts of Quran and gave misinterpretations for various verses and a few samples are listed below:

  • Untill the age of 40 if death reaches somebody he would directly go to heaven!
  • A rich believer is better than a poor believer!
  • Number-19 is a great miracle!
  • Cutting the hand of a thief is a satanic practice!
  • Abraham (p) was deceived by Satan to kill his son in the name of sacrifice! Etc, Etc, Etc.,

Now let us see the verses that confirm that Muhammad is the final messenger of Islam:

[33:40] “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things.”

[5:3] “…This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion…”

33:40 has confirmed that the prophet-hood has been completed with the arrival of Muhammad (P) and 5:3 confirmed that the religion has been perfected with the arrival of Muhammd (P) and as a sign of the completion of Allah’s favor; Allah [SWTA] has approved the religion-Islam for us.

Also the following verses confirms that Prophet Muhammad is the messenger and mercy for the whole Humanity, Universe, Warner for the Humans, Jinns and Aliens [6:19], Arabs, the people of the scripture, who was awaited for a very long time!

[25:1] “Blessed is He who sent down the Criterion upon His Servant that he may be to the universe a Warner.”

[21:107] “And We did not send you (O Muhammad) except as a Mercy to the universe [لِّلْعَالَمِينَ].”

[34:28] “And We have not sent you except comprehensively to mankind as a bringer of good tidings and a warner. But most of the people do not know.”

[22:49] “Say, ‘O Mankind, I am but a plain Warner to you’.”

[6:19] “And this Qur’an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches”.

[7:158] Say, “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided.”

[5:19] “O followers of the Book! indeed Our Messenger has come to you explaining to you after a pause of the Messengers, lest you say: There came not to us a giver of good news or a warner, so indeed there has come to you a giver of good news and a warner; and Allah has power over all things.”

[61: 6] “And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

Kindly note-down the most effective argument here and that is the word “pause” appears in 5:19 is well clarified in 61:6 and that is until Jesus (P) there were messengers came one after another or lived two together almost continuously, but for the first time in the history after Jesus (P), there was a very long pause for the most awaited, well prophesied, a messenger and mercy for the whole humanity and for the universe [Humans, Jins, Aeliens] Muhammad (P) has come as the messenger of the covenant and the final messenger, confirming all previous scriptures:

[6:92]  And this (the Qur’an) is a blessed book which We have sent down, confirming (the revelations) which came before it, so that you may warn the Mother of Towns (i.e. Makkah) and all those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it (the Qur’an), and they are constant in guarding their Salat (prayers).

[7:157] “Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they, who have believed in him, honoured him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful.”

Note: As Allah [SWTA] knew the past, present and future, he has well clarified that wherever the term ‘Messenger’, was anonymously used to point out a human, throughout the Quran that directly relates to Muhammad (P) through the verse 7:157!

As many fake messengers are going to arrive after Muhammad (P), Allah [SWTA] has clarified in 7:157 that the anonymous usage or application of the term ‘Messenger’ in Quran pointing a human meant straight to the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in the Torah and the Gospel i.e Muhammad (P)!

Rashad has also proclaimed that only Prophets receive scriptures and not the messengers, but Quran confirms that messengers received scriptures:

In-order to fool the believers that Khalifa has been sent as a Messenger, Khalifates claims that only Prophets receive scriptures but not the messengers, therefore they can deceitfully prove that Khalifa has come without any scripture as a messenger! Whereas Quran confirms that whatever has been revealed (told) to Muhammad [PBUH] had been also revealed (may be with slight variations) to the earlier messengers:

[41:43]Nothing is said to you, [O Muhammad], except what was already said to the messengers before you. Indeed, your Lord is a possessor of forgiveness and a possessor of painful penalty.

Also verses like 3:184, 57:25, 35:25 confirms that all messengers received scriptures:[3:184] Then if they deny you, [O Muhammad] – so were messengers denied before you, who brought clear proofs and written ordinances and the enlightening Scripture.

[57:25] “Indeed We have sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and the Balance (justice) that mankind may keep up justice. And We brought forth iron wherein is mighty power (in matters of war), as well as many benefits for mankind, that Allah may test who it is that will help Him (His religion), and His Messengers in the unseen. Verily, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.”

[35:25] “And if they belie you, those before them also belied. Their Messengers came to them with clear signs, and with the scriptures, and the book giving light.”

Chapter-7

FIRST PILLAR OF ISLAM:

Rashad claimed that witnessing “La ilaha ilAllah” as the first pillar of Islam but witnessing “Muhammadar Rasulullah” as the foundation of hypocrisy! Now let us discuss about the verses which deals about the first pillar of Islam:

[13:43] “And those who have disbelieved say, you are not a messenger. Say, “Sufficient is Allah as Witness between me and you, and [the witness of] whoever has knowledge of the Scripture.”

Therefore as mentioned in 13:43 the Muslims who have been blessed with the knowledge of Quran do also bear witness that “Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is Allah’s messenger”.

Also through the verse 63:1, we can very well understand that bearing witness for the messenger is mandatory:

[63:1]When the hypocrites come to you (O Muhammad SAW), they say: “We bear witness that you are indeed the Messenger of Allah.” Allah knows that you are indeed His Messenger and Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are liars indeed.”

As cited in 3:7 those who possess intelligence will say “We believe in this (Quran)-all of it comes from Allah”. The moment they (And those among future generations) realize that all of it is from God; they will spontaneously witness that this is sent by Allah through his messenger Muhammad (PBUH) and proclaim “Muhammadar Rasul Allah”.

How could an act of spontaneous out-pour from the heart of a Muslim who gains knowledge from Quran and acting accordingly as cited in 13:43 amount to idolatry? Especially when he believes that there is no divine protector or helper for him other than Allah.

An important point to be noted here is for providing witness that ‘there is no elah except Allah’ even common knowledge is enough by looking in to the signs in the heavens and the earth as mentioned in Surah-3 Verse-18:

[3:18] ‘Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge – [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise’.

But for providing witness that Muhammad (PBUH) is Allah’s messenger it is essential that one should have the knowledge of the scripture as mentioned in 13:43.

In other words if you witness that ‘there is no elah except Allah’ it means you may have general/common knowledge as per 3:18 but only if you also say “Muhammadar Rasul Allah” that confirms that along with general/common knowledge you also possesses the knowledge of the scripture as per 13:43.

In another angle we can say that who doesn’t witnesses “Muhammadar Rasul Allah” he is an ignorant about the scripture and a disbeliever but who do bear witness that “Muhammadar Rasul Allah” is among the people who possess the knowledge of the scripture as per 13:43.

Let us have a look in to both the verses which forms the first pillar of Islam:

[3:18] ‘Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge – [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise’.

[13:43]Those who disbelieved will say, “You are not a messenger!” Say, “GOD suffices as a witness between me and you, and those who possess knowledge of the scripture.”

Rashad Khalifa, who claimed to analyze every single alphabet in Quran should have noticed the identity of verse 13:43 with the common code19, but he might have ignored it because it contradicted with his own verdict that proclaiming the second part of shahaadah (“Muhammaduar Rasul Allah”) is an act of idolatry.

Rashad also states that the verse No. 63:01 is the only place in Quran where the statement “Muhammad [PBUH] is Allah’s messenger” is made and it was a witness made only by the hypocrites!

Now let us see what does 63:01 says:

[63:01] “When the hypocrites come to you, [O Muhammad], they say, “We testify that you are the Messenger of Allah.” And Allah knows that you are His Messenger, and Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars.”

Actually the verse 63:1 explains that when the hypocrites came to Muhammad [P], they said “we witness that you are messenger of Allah” and Allah has mentioned in that verse that He knows that Muhammad [P] is His messenger but He bears witness that the hypocrites are liars.

By endorsing the statement of the lying hypocrites (63:01) against the witness of Allah and those who possesses the knowledge of the scripture (13:43) Rashad has attempted to brand all Muslims who witnesses “Muhammadar Rasul Allah” as hypocrites!

Allah very well knows that the hypocrites are dishonest because they utter only lip-service by hiding their evil thoughts and disbeliefs. Here another crucial point has to be noted down and that is, in 63:01 Allah doesn’t says that witnessing “Muhammadur RasulAllah” is false but Allah himself witnessed “Muhammadur RasulAllah” in the same verse and informed us to witness the same in verse 13:43 that has clearly mentioned that those who said that statement in that particular incident are munafiqs since they were liars in their claims.

Also through the verse number 63:01 we can realize that anyone who wants to be a believer, he has to witness that Muhammad is a messenger. For further proof please see the following verse:

[3:86]“How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.”

Verse 3:86 makes it clear that once a community has been given solid proof, first it has to believe in it and then it has to bear witness that the messenger is the truth, and it should never turn back to disbelief in order to be guided by Allah [SWTA].

The hypocrites are mentioned in 63:01 as liars because they say something which is not in their hearts. The following verses will make it very clear that why Allah [SWTA] says hypocrites are liars and it will also makes it clear that 63:01 is not the only place where they are mentioned as liars:

[59:11] “Have you not considered those who practice hypocrisy, saying to their brothers who have disbelieved among the People of the Scripture, “If you are expelled, we will surely leave with you, and we will not obey, in regard to you, anyone – ever; and if you are fought, we will surely aid you.” But Allah testifies that they are liars.”

[3:167] “And that He might make evident those who are hypocrites. For it was said to them, “Come, fight in the way of Allah or [at least] defend.” They said, “If we had known [there would be] fighting, we would have followed you.” They were nearer to disbelief that day than to faith, saying with their mouths what was not in their hearts. And Allah is fully aware of what they conceal.”

Here another potential point I wish to bring it to your notice and that is; the group of people who continuously claim that we should never bear witness for Prophet Muhammad as messenger; they continuously claiming that Rashad khalifa as a messenger of Allah, which means they bear witness that Khalifa as a messenger of Allah!

What a strange hard-core arrogant people they are, when not even a single verse in Quran talks about Khalifa still they bravely trying to teach Allah [SWTA] new things assuming that Allah [SWTA] don’t know everything! Making false claims about Allah [SWTA] that He has sent a new messenger with mathematical miracles! Claiming that Allah [SWTA] has failed to protect Quran, and Satan has inserted false verses into Quran, and their hero Khalifa has restored the Quran!

How come they make all these hectic claims when; Islam has been already fulfilled by Allah [SWTA] and He approved it to be the religion that has to be followed, which He would make it to dominate all the other religions and Allah [SWTA] is witness over it!:

[5:3] “…This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion…”

[9:33] “It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah dislike it.”

[61:09] “It is He who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although those who associate others with Allah dislike it.”

[48:28] “It is He who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion. And sufficient is Allah as Witness.”

Chapter-8

Making distinction between Allah’s Messengers

Khalifa came with a new argument saying that “if we witness “Muhammadar RasulAllah” it means that we are all making distinction among the messengers.

Our Argument 1:  Verse 4:150-151, 2:91 confirms that “believing in some messengers and rejecting other messengers” is how one could make discrimination among the messengers as they were all from Allah and all of them received basically the same message from Allah (41:43).

[4:150,15] “Indeed, those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers and wish to discriminate between Allah and His messengers and say, “We believe in some and disbelieve in others,” and wish to adopt a way in between. Those are the disbelievers, truly. And We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment.”

[2:91] And when it is said to them, ‘Believe in what Allah has sent down’, they say, ‘We believe in what was sent down to us.’ And they disbelieve in that which came after it, while it is the truth confirming what is with them. Say “Why then have you killed the Prophets of Allah aforetime, if you indeed have been believers?”

Our Argument 2: Now we have a question for Khalifates and that is, when you believe in Muhammad [P] whether you believe in all the other messengers or by believing in Muhammad [P] you reject some of the messengers? In other words’ whether you started believing in all the other messengers after you start to believe in Muhammad [P] as a messenger of Allah or before you believed in Muhammad [P] as a messenger of Allah.

The truth is; you started believing in all the other messengers of Allah only after you start to believe that Muhammad [P] as a messenger of Allah? See the below verses which clearly states that after believing in what was revealed to Muhammad [P] every believer starts believing in all other messengers and get rid of discriminating among the messengers no matter either the believers know a particular messenger or not, verse 2:285 confirms our argument:

2:285 “The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.”

[3:119] Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the scriptures. And when they meet you, they say, “We believe.” But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say: ‘Perish in your rage. Certainly, Allah knows what is in the breasts.’

Our Argument 3: Is there is any guidelines in Quran that says if you bear witness that Muhammad [P] is a messenger then it indirectly means that you make distinctions among the messengers. Is there is any command in Quran that stops you from bearing witness that Muhammad [P] is a messenger of GOD? Or is there is any command in Quran that stops you from bearing witness for any of the truth that you know?

Where did you get your proof from Quran that you can believe in something but you should not bear witness for the same? Kindly see the following verse which confirms that you should bear witness for the one whom you find as a true messenger:

[3:86] “Why should GOD guide people who disbelieved after believing, and after witnessing that the messenger is truth, and after solid proofs have been given to them? GOD does not guide the wicked.”

Our Argument 4: How can we treat the messengers whose names are not mentioned in the Quran equal to Moses whose name is mentioned more numbers of times next to Allah? Could anyone possibly treat a person whom he never knew same like a person whom he knows very well?

Allah’s religion is full of logics’ and very simple to follow but Rashad’s misinterpretations are illogical and impossible to realize and follow. Please see the following verse:

[4:164] “Messengers We have told you about, and messengers We never told you about. And GOD spoke to Moses directly.”

Our Argument 5: Anyone who reads verses 2:136 and 3:84 and try to identify the context of those verses, one can easily recognize that they are against the people of the previous scriptures, among whom some rejected Jesus and others rejected both Jesus and Muhammad [P] and rest of them rejected only Muhammad [P], which has been identified in Quran as showing distinction among the messengers!

Kindly see through the following verse, how-come people of the Books have discriminated the Quran and Muhammad [P] from previous scriptures and messengers when similarly both were sent by Allah:

[2:91] “And when it is said to them `Believe in what ALLAH has sent down,’ they say `We believe in what has been sent down to us;’ and they disbelieve in what has been sent down after that, yet it is the Truth, fulfilling that which is with them. Say ‘Why then, do you seek to slay the Prophets of ALLAH before this, if you were believers.”

[4:150]Surely those who disbelieve in ALLAH and HIS Messengers and seek to make a distinction between ALLAH and HIS Messengers, and say, ‘We believe in some and disbelieve in others’, and seek to take a way between.”

The above verse-4:150 clearly states that even though all the messengers were sent by Allah, anyone who says ‘We believe in some and disbelieve in others’ is the discrimination in realty and the discrimination which Khalifa portrayed is a fabricated one, i.e. misinterpreted discrimination! Quran also guides us how to respond to those people of the previous scripture, who are the real-time discriminators as follows:  

[2:136] Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.”

[3:84] Say, “We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him.”

Some of them accepted only up to Moses and some of them accepted only up to Jesus or most of them accepted Isaac and the messengers came through him but not Ishmael and the messenger came through him i.e. some of them they believed and some of them they rejected and by which they have created discrimination among Allah’s messengers. If you know any Christian priest kindly check with him what is the status of Prophet Ishmael in his religion so that the truth in our argument would come to limelight! 

Our argument 6: Believing in all the messengers and treating them without partiality is possible only by understanding that they were all sent by Allah with the same basic message of “Worship Allah and avoid Taghut (verse)16:36”. We cannot possibly hold all of them in the same rank, when Allah Himself has blessed some of them above others (2:253). Allah has also preferred some prophets above others (17:55).

We can’t say as prophet David was a king in-order to avoid discrimination among Allah’s messengers I’m going to mention all the other messengers as kings! Same way you can’t say in-order to avoid discrimination among Jesus and other Messengers I’m going to say that all the other messengers spoke to their people as soon as they born! Or you can’t say that in-order to avoid discrimination between Muhammad [P] and other messengers I’m going to proclaim that all the messengers are Kathamun Nabi!

[2:253] “Of those messengers, some of whom We have caused to excel others, and of whom there are some unto whom Allah spoke, while some of them He exalted (above others) in degree; and We gave Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs and We supported him with the holy Spirit…”

[17:55] And your Lord is most knowing of whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And We have made some of the prophets exceed others [in various ways], and to David We gave the book [of Psalms].

Our Argument 7: Verse 2:285 provides a most user friendly way for not discriminating among Allah’s messengers and that is “believe in what was revealed to Muhammad [P] so that by default, automatically you believe in Allah and His angels and His books and all of His messengers, and you would never make distinction among the messengers!

If you believed only in Torah you have rejected Jesus and discriminate him from other messengers, if you believe only in Injeel you have rejected Mohamed [PBUH] and discriminate him from other messengers but if you believe in what was revealed to Mohamed [P] you are safeguarded from creating discrimination among Allah’s Messengers either you know a messenger or you doesn’t even know any particular messenger i.e. from Adam (P) to Muhmmad (P)! 

[2:285] The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.”                          

Our Argument 8: In fact, Allah send blessings on believers and Angels are seeking Allah’s blessings (the meaning given by Khalifa as help instead of blessings is nowhere near the actual meaning) on believers (33:43) to lead them from darkness to light.

The believers invoke peace upon Allah’s chosen servants (27:59) and on Allah’s messengers (37:181).They are also directed to invoke blessings on Prophet Muhammad [P] (33:56) who is dearer to them than their own selves (33:6) and anything else they have (9:24). There is a good example in the prophet (33:21), for those who place their hopes in Allah and hereafter and who remember Allah so much.

[33:43] “He it is Who sends down His blessing on you, and His angels pray for you, that He may bring you forth from all kinds of darkness into light. And He is Merciful to the believers.”

Kindly note down that Rashad Khalifa has given the meaning “encouragement” in (9:103) but “contact prayers” in (17:110) for the same Arabic word which actually means prayer. Some of the followers of Khalifa asking why then the believers among the previous generations have not witnessed (Shahadath) for their messengers. Our attitude should be we hear and we obey as a response to the guidelines in 13:43, 3:86 to bear witness shahadah for Muhammad [P]:                                   

[13:43] “The unbelievers say, “You are not a Messenger.” Say, “God and those who have the knowledge of the Book are sufficient witness.”

[3:86] How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people”.

[24:51] “The only statement of the [true] believers when they are called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them is that they say, “We hear and we obey.” And those are the successful.”

As messengers came in a row and couple of messengers lived in same or different places, and sent for same or different missions, previous situation was completely different from the era of Prophet Muhammad [P] until the end of the world as religion was complete [5:3] with the arrival and departure of Prophet Muhammad [P] as he is the messenger of the covenant [61:6] who has confirmed all the previous scriptures [6:92, 7:156-157, 12:111, 2:41, 5-48, 4:47, 2-101, 6:92, 2:97, 2:91, 3:3, 2:101, 2:89, 5:48, 46:30, 46:12, 35:31, 2:41, 5:48, etc.] and the last prophet, therefore if Al-Mighty Allah ask us to bear witness-shahadah for Muhammad [P] we can’t reply to Allah that “we hear but we disobey” as Jews have replied in 2:93, 4:46!

Now let us view the verses related to the fulfillment of the only approved religion i.e. Islam with the arrival [and departure] of Muhammad [p] who has been foretold by Jesus [P]:

[5:3] “This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.”

[61: 6] “And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”
Kindly see what Khalifa says in Appendix 26 of his book “Final Testament, under the heading “The Three Messengers of Islam”: “This Appendix provides the Quranic mathematical evidence that [1] Abraham was the original messenger of Islam, i.e, Submission, [2] Muhammad was the scripture delivering messenger, and [3] Rashad is the purifying and consolidating messenger who delivered the religion’s authenticating proof.”
Dear brothers and sisters, what happened to Jesus and Moses?! As per Khalifa’s own criteria’s is this not discrimination among the messengers?! You can realize that most of Khalifa’s hadiths are anti-Quran, anti-logic, and built on his own lust, on the other hand they contradicts with his own other hadiths.

Chapter-9 

UNLETTERED PROPHET

Rashad Khalifa explains that according to (25:5) Muhammad [P] wrote God’s revelations with his own hand and his contemporaries knew that he was a literate man who could read and write. Let us analyze the verses 25:4, 5 and 29:48.

[25:4] And those who disbelieve say, “This [Qur’an] is not except a falsehood he invented, and another people assisted him in it.”But they have committed an injustice and a lie”.

[25:5] And they say, “Legends of the former peoples which he has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon.”

[29:48] “Neither did you read any book before it (this Qur’an), nor did you write any book with your right hand. In that case, indeed, the followers of falsehood might have doubted.”

When Khalifa says “Quran tells us that Muhammad [P] wrote down the Quran”, endorsing the comments of the disbelievers; the following points are to be noted down:

1) It is not Quran but the unbelievers, who said “Tales from the past that he wrote down; they were dictated to him day and night” (25:5)

2) Why should Khalifa use the word contemporaries instead of “They” (the unbelievers cited in 25:4), misleading the innocent readers.

3) Allah clarifies that the utterance of the unbelievers; “this is a fabrication that he produces with the help of some other people” as blasphemy and falsehood (25:4)

4) Does not the word “they” in 25:5 refer to the unbelievers cited in 25:4 whose utterances are blasphemy and falsehood. Khalifa is therefore endorsing the statement of the unbelievers whose utterances are ignored as blasphemy and falsehood by Allah.

5) Is that not the verse 29:48 (you did not read previous scriptures, nor did you write them with your hand); indicate that the prophet had not read from and written down books?

6) Doesn’t the statement in 29:48 “in that case those who rejects would have had reason to harbor doubts” indicate that the prophet didn’t know how to read and write?

Furthermore Khalifa who often quote from Bible, for many reasons has hided a landmark Biblical prophecy (Isaiah 29:10-12) confirms that the Quran, which indeed summarizes the entire history of mankind (or “the entire vision”), was going to be revealed to an illiterate man:

[Isaiah 29:10] For the Lord has poured over you a spirit of deep sleep, He has shut your eyes, the prophets, and He has covered your heads, the seers.

[Isaiah 29:11] The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed book, which when they give it to the one who is literate, saying, “Please read this”, he will say, “I cannot, for it is sealed”

[Isaiah 29:10] Then the book will be given to the one who is illiterate, saying “Please read this”, and he will say “I cannot read”.

Neither Jesus, nor any of the prophets after Isaiah qualify as “illiterate”, except for Muhammad. Muhammad was clearly illiterate according to the Quran and the Bible.

Prophecy of end of the world during 2280 CE!

The following are quotation from an interview of Rashad Kalifa to Albasheer. You can also find the similar information in March 1988, Muslim Perspective, the main difference with ‘MP’ is; in it Khalifa has also prophesied that all Islamic countries around the world will be destroyed along with Egypt in 1990!                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Al-Bashir is a monthly Islamic newspaper issued by the Islamic Solidarity Association in Chicago. In-order to view the original in English and Arabic kindly visit: [http://free minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=9597584.0 also visit http://www.islamnoon.com/Motafrkat/rashad_5.htm%5D

البشير:       تقول إنّ مصر ستموت عام 1990، هل الوحي أخبركَ بذلك؟                                                                                   Albasheer: Do you say that Egypt will Die in 1990? Did the Spirit tell you that?

رشاد :       نعم جبريل قال لي ذلك، أصلوا ستأتيكم خبطة                                                                                                        Rashad: Yes Gebrael told me that; Assloo (no translation) it will come as a Hit.

البشير:       متى تقوم الساعة؟                                                                                                                                           Albasheer: When will the Day of Judgment will be?

                        رشاد : نعم هذه أيضاً جبريل جاء بها، وستكون سنة 2280م، وهي من مضاعفات

الرقم 19، وسوف نتقابل يوم القيامة.                                                                                                                                      Rashad: Yes, Gebreal told me about this too, it will be in 2280, which is the timing of #19; and we will meet in the Judgement Day.

First, Egypt is still there till today! Second, prophet Mohamed [PBUH] was asked the same Question, When will be the Day of Judgment will be? And his responses can be found with 7:187 and 79:42-44:

[7:187] They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? Say, “Its knowledge is only with my Lord. None will reveal its time except Him. It lays heavily upon the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except unexpectedly.” They ask you as if you are familiar with it. Say, “Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most of the people do not know.”

Is that not the last part of verse [7:187] “Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most of the people do not know” points-out ‘Rashad’s group and like-minded people who try to predict End of the World’?

[79:42-44]They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? In what [position] are you that you should mention it? To your Lord is its finality.

Is that not the verse 79:44 points out that “No one knows its time except Allah [SWTA]? Rashad Khalifa, who admitted that the messengers were powerless and they doesn’t know the future (kindly see his translation for 7:188). In contradiction to that does Rashad Khalifa identified himself in (72:1-28) and concluded himself as the only special and powerful messenger who knows the future? Is he a powerful messenger to whom the future is revealed? What is the miracle of manipulating the gematrical value of “Rashada” for “Rashad”?

Number of manipulations with the intention of bringing in number “19”into Quranic verses, using the various number systems and selected methods and sub-methods are endless, baseless and illogical. Simply either they add, subtract, multiply or divide the various values of any verse or Surah or any part of the Quran, all Rashad and his team needed is; they want to see “19” in it!

They well know how to bring the final derivation of “19” for any part of Quran by making a team to sit around and manipulate calculations and if 100 different types of calculations fails they never reveal it to public about those failures but if one particular type of calculation finally makes “19” they rejoice saying see here is a miracle of Quran!

“Indeed, the Hour is coming – I almost conceal it – so that every soul may be recompensed according to that for which it strives.” [20:15]

As per verse (20:15) Allah has kept the knowledge of the hour almost hidden in order that each soul (believer and non-believer) be paid its wok. Is that not “least hidden” from Rashad Khalifa’s followers also?             

“And to Allah belongs the unseen [aspects, future] of the heavens and the earth. And the command for the Hour is not but as a glance of the eye or even nearer. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.” [16:77]

Verse (16:77) cites that to Allah belongs the unseen (Future) of the heavens and earth. The matter of the hour or the decision of the hour is but as a twinkling of the eye or it is still nearer. Is 2280 AD stays away a blink of an eye from now or is that Khalifa wish to force Allah [SWTA] to do something in a stipulated duration? Is that not “16:77” gives the hint to expect “End of the World” any moment and fearing that everyone should live righteous?!

[33:63] “People ask you concerning the Hour. Say,” Knowledge of it is only with Allah. And what may make you perceive? Perhaps the Hour is near.”

[42:17]It is Allah who has sent down the Book in truth and [also] the balance. And what will make you perceive? Perhaps the Hour is near.  

[42:18] “Those who do not believe in it are impatient for it, but those who believe are fearful of it and know that it is the truth. Unquestionably, those who dispute concerning the Hour are in extreme error.”

Do not the verses (33:63, 42:17) indicate that perhaps the hour may be very close or a blink of an eye away; for all that the people know?

Why should Khalifa try to add into Quran the phrase (see verse 16:77 in his translation) “As far as He is concerned”? Is he not trying to read his own meanings in to Quran?

Does not 42:18 points out that those who believes in “end of the world” as how Allah has promised (i.e. it may appear any time but suddenly, which may be nearer) are fearful of it and on the other side those who believes it in the way how Khalifa has promised are impatient to see it out in 2280 AD and keep disputing about its arrival against a lot of Quran verses and continued to be in extreme error?

We wonder how come few people are still trusting in Khalifa’s words after seeing how his previous prophecies (i.e. Egypt, whole Arabia, and all Muslim countries will be destroyed in 1990) has proven fake? How come a person doesn’t know his own fate (i.e. when, how and by whom he is going to be killed) can foretell the “Fate of the World!”

Is that not resembles to the attitude of sorcerers who sit in the roadside with empty stomach and pockets but cheat public saying that they can foretell everybody’s future?! Recall how he has declared that “FAHD: THE LAST SAUDI KING” in his Muslim Perspective May 1985 Issue in bold headlines and Allah has proved that as a fake prophecy like all his other prophecies!

Was he not challenged in November 1989 in his news bulletin – Submitter’s Perspective that “Divine Proclamation through Gabriel: Like the time of Noah: Only those who stand with God’s messenger [Rashad Khalifa] will be saved.”

“…The angel Gabriel has conveyed to me God’s plan: those who refuse to stand by His Messenger of the Covenant [Rashad Khalifa] will be utterly destroyed. I was told specifically that it will be like the time of Noah: Only those who stand by God’s messenger will be saved.”

Now we can very well conclude that he was not inspired by Allah [SWTA] through Gabriel (P) as Messengers would never say lies but he has been inspired by Iblees through Satans’ as Khalifa was continuously talking lies to deceive the humans!

Kindly see the following Quran verse to understand the trait of Allah’s messengers that they would promise only the truth but not any hoaxes:

“…messengers told the truth [36:52]”

Kindly see the following Quran verse to understand the trait of the messenger of Iblees’s that he would promise only the hoaxes but not the truth:

“Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend? They descend upon every sinful liar. [26:221-222]”

Chapter-11

IS LIFE ONLY ON EARTH?

Is “DHABBATH (27:82)” a computer?!

Khalifa explains that there is life only on this planet-earth and earth is the only planet fit for existence based on 41:9-10 but Quran teaches that Allah has spread out (scattered) living creatures both in the heavens and the earth (42:29). Shall we then regard the one whose explanations contradict with Allah’s statements, as a messenger of Allah? Kindly view the verse 29 of Surah-42:

[42-29] And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and what He has spread forth in both of them of living beings. And He is all-powerful to gather them together, when He will.”

I still remember that when I was in school I have been taught that the Sun never move, rotate, revolve and it stands still, and this information in education sector continued even after my children joined the schools! This was the case of science knowledge for almost last 14-centuries but none of the Quran translators tried to misinterpret Quran verses related to Sun with the limited science knowledge prevailed during their time! Kindly see the Quran verses which confirms that the Sun moves:

He created the heavens and the Earth with truth. He wraps the night around the day and wraps the day around the night, and has made the Sun and Moon subservient, each one running for a specified term. Is He not indeed the Almighty, the Endlessly Forgiving? [39: 5]

It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit. [36:40]

Allah it is Who raised up the heavens without visible supports, then mounted the Throne, and compelled the sun and the moon to be of service, each runs unto an appointed term; He ordered the course; He detailed the revelations, that haply ye may be certain of the meeting with your Lord. [13:02]

He makes the night to pass into the day and He makes the day to pass into the night. He hath subdued the sun and moon to service. Each runs unto an appointed term. Such is Allah, your Lord; His is the Sovereignty; and those unto whom ye pray instead of Him own not so much as the white spot on a date-stone. [35:13]

And He it is, Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. They float, each in an orbit. [21:33]

Have you not seen that God causes the night to enter into the day and the day into the night? He has made the sun and moon subservient (to Himself). Each move (in an orbit) for an appointed time; God is certainly All-aware of what you do. [31-29]

[55:5] The sun and moon rotate in a predestined orbit.

But Khalifa explains that there is life only on this planet-earth and earth is the only planet that is fit for existence based on his limited Quran and science knowledge against Allah [SWTA]’s statement in 42-29!

[42-29] And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and what He has spread forth in both of them of living beings. And He is all-powerful to gather them together, when He will.”

When you keenly observe the verse 42:29 then your eyes, heart would be opened for the hidden meaning of verses like: 21:107, 25:1, and that is as there is the possibility of humans to reside in the space once the messenger-ship of Muhammad [P] has been accomplished and the religion is fulfilled with him, he has been mentioned as mercy to the universe and Warner to the universe.

[21:107] “And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the universe.”

[25:1]Blessed is He, Who has revealed unto His slave the Criterion (of right and wrong), that he may be a Warner to the universe.”

Is “Dhabbath (27:82)” a computer?!:

Khalifa’s style shows that first he makes a conclusion and then he starts to misinterpret Quran verses to suit his intentions instead of first researching all related verses and its contexts. Khalifa has announced that the term “Dhabbath” prophesied in 27:82 as a computer!

“And when the word befalls them, We will bring forth for them a creature from the earth speaking to them, [saying] that the people were, of Our verses, not certain [in faith].” [27:82]

In about 18 different verses the word “Dhabbath” has been used to refer ‘living beings’ in Quran. Then why the same word which is used in verse (27:82) should be explained as a computer? Didn’t the radio made from earthly material spoke to mankind much earlier?

For the same word “dhabbath” the author gives meaning like living creature (24:45), animals (45:4), computer (27:82) etc., in-order to misinterpret ‘27:82’ and to point-out computer as a creature prophesied by Quran to suit his intentions [i.e. computer has identified 19-theory and Khalifa has worked with the computer to find it out and hence computer is the animal which told people that they doesn’t believe in Quran, and therefore Khalifa is a messenger etc.]

Criminal Justice System Ordained By Allah [SWTA]

MARKING THE HANDS OF THIEVES!?

Verse (5:38) command us to cut off the hands of thieves as a punishment from Allah as a preventive measure to eradicate crimes in the future. Now let us see the translation and misinterpretation of Khalifa for verse 5:38:

“[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah. And Allah is exalted in Might and Wise.” [5:38] “Translation from Sahih International”

Khalifa’s Translation: [5:38] The thief, male or female, you shall mark their hands* as a punishment for their crime, and to serve as an example from GOD. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.

Yusuf Ali Translation: [5:38] As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.

Pickthall Translation: As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise.

Khalifa says verse 5:38 doesn’t mean cutting the hands but it is just marking the hands as appears in 12:31. Let us view verse 12:31:

“So when she heard of their scheming, she sent for them and prepared for them a banquet and gave each one of them a knife and said [to Joseph], “Come out before them.” And when they saw him, they greatly admired him and cut their hands and said, “Perfect is Allah! This is not a man; this is none but a noble angel.” [12:31] 

Compare the meaning given to the same word ”Qathoo” in other verses like: 2:27, 6:45, 94, 7:72,124,160,168, 13:25,31, 20:71, 21:93, 22:15, 23:53, 26:49, 47:15, 59:5 etc., where the meaning given is cut, chop, sever, tear, divide, scatter, annihilate etc. How marking the hand could be an exemplary punishment or could be a way of example from Allah?

The term used in 12:31 is waqatta’na which means “and cut”

Globally Muslims use the same term qatta’na for performing Circumcision for their male children! Let see what the definition for qatta’na or Circumcision:    

“Circumcision is the surgical “removal” of the foreskin, the tissue covering the head (glans) of the penis. It is an ancient practice that has its origin in religious rites. Today, many parents have their sons circumcised for religious or other reasons.”

Therefore qatta’na means removal and not marking. Verse 12:31 also means cut but it explains a situation of emotional action and its outcome, where women who saw Prophet Yusuf’s beauty and lost their consciousness for a moment and cut their hands whereas as per verse 5:38 we have to cut the hands of thieves with our full consciousness remembering Allah and the judgement day as it is a command from Allah who is All-mighty, All-wise.

Khalifa Says: “The practice of cutting off the thief’s hand is a satanic practice!” in-order to support his argument Khalifa has provided the following mathematical proofs for marking the hands of thieves, instead of cutting it!

Khalifa’s proof: He want his innocent followers to calculate the Surah and verse numbers of 5:38 and 12:31 as both are 43 he submit a new concept that the hands of the thieves has to be marked instead of cutting it!? He further said as in 12:31 women admired Joseph and cut their hands therefore the same way thieves’ hands have to be treated! He also added one more mathematical proof and that was “nineteen verses” after 12:31 the same word gets repeated in 12:50 and that is the proof!

How come a woman who continuously tried to force a male (Prophet Yusuf) for sexual intercourse, and wants to prove other women that she was actually not wrong and run a show and the arrangements made by her is an alternate for the clear and plain commandment given in 5:38. Recall Rashad translation for 5:38, which he has translated as “to serve as an example from GOD. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise” but Khalifa wants us to follow the example set by women who were “most vice” and schemed against Prophet Yusuf [12:51, 52] a dirty scheme.

Is that the law, which Khalifa’s followers wish to introduce is; to give the thieves a knife in their hands and to call beautiful female models (vice-versa) for a catwalk and to let the thieves cut their own hands!?

Moreover Khalifa proclaims that the practice of cutting hands is a satanic practice! A person who has a real practice of reading Quran with meaning would immediately recognize who is Khalifa when he hears the words “that the practice of cutting hands is a satanic practise!” because Allah [SWTA] says in Quran that cutting of hands as a Quranic law as per ‘Surah-5 verse-33’:

[5:33] “The only reward of those, who wage war against ALLAH and HIS Messenger and strive to create disorder in the land, is that they be slain or crucified or their hands and feet be cut off on account of their enmity, or they be expelled from the land. That shall be a disgrace for them in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a great punishment.”

Here we are wondering about one-thing and that is how come Rashad was unaware of plastic surgery, which was very popular in USA during his time! How much easy it is to hide a mark using plastic surgery! In that case how could marking the hand serve as an exemplary punishment or could serve as a way of example from Allah?! The following verse may well identify the faith and belief of Khalifa:

“…And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the disbelievers.” (5:44)

Symbolic Lashes: Eyewash of executing Allah’s law

When Allah says, 24th Surah has been sent down and made it as law, which has been ordained on believers to execute it, which is obligatory on them, and verses in them are āyātin bayyinātin (clear Verses) so that they may take heed. After telling the above information Allah has commanded us to whip the adulteress and the adulterer 100 lashes and not to show mercy on them if we really believe in Allah and the judgement day, which are very plain and well easy to understand but instead of believing in Allah and judgement day Khalifa continued to believe in his numerology. Let us view few translations for [24:1-2]:

Sahih International [24:1-2]: “[This is] a Surah which We have sent down and made [that within it] obligatory and revealed therein verses of clear evidence that you might remember. The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.”

Khalifa’s Translation [24:1-2] A Surah that we have sent down, and we have decreed as law. We have revealed in it “clear revelations”, that you may take heed. The adulteress and the adulterer you shall whip each of them a hundred lashes. Do not be swayed by pity from carrying out GOD’s law, if you truly believe in GOD and the Last Day. And let a group of believers witness their penalty.

Yusuf Ali [24:1-2]: A Surah which We have sent down and which We have ordained in it have We sent down Clear Signs, in order that ye may receive admonition. The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.

Khalifa says: “Social pressure, i.e., public witnessing of the penalty, is the purpose of punishment but not the pain. The lashes should be symbolic, but not severe”. Therefore Some-body should be standing with a whip and pretending to flog the adulteress and the adulterer, which would actually force the witnesses to laugh by seeing the whipping drama. All three translations given above are talking about [“and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment”] “punishment” but not “pretending like punishing”.

Kindly note down that for changing the law of painful lashes to symbolic lashes Khalifa has not given any kind of proof and not even fake proofs as he has given for “marking the hands”. When we resort to symbolic lashes we are actually swayed away from carrying out Allah’s law of whipping, because of pity or compassion. Remember, Allah has alerted us not to be swayed away from whipping 100 lashes in public because of pity and compassion and in- order for us to take heed, Allah has revealed the law in clear revelations (24:01).

Conclusion about criminal justice system:                                                                           Khalifa claimed that he has created a new Quranic justice system but proved to follow his own opinion in several ways when it came to interpret Quranic laws, for instance the punishment for theft, and did not have the courage to accept God’s law as it is (5:38).

Verse 45:23 clarifies the mindset of Khalifa and like minded people as the one who takes his own desires as his god:

[45:23] “Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah? Then will you not be reminded?”

Also Verse 6:112 clarifies that prophet’s enemies inspires among themselves with decorative speech in delusion and we have to ignore them and whatever they invent i.e. Rashad Khalifa’s hadiths recorded in audios, videos, magazines, footnotes, appendices, online, etc:                                          

[6:112] “And thus We have made for every prophet an enemy – devils from mankind and jinn, inspiring to one another decorative speech in delusion. But if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so leave them and that which they invent.”

The following verse confirms that either Khalifa has received funds from Allah’s enemies or because of threatening from them, Khalifa has changed the laws of Allah [SWTA] revealed in Quran:

[5:44] “Indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which was guidance and light. The prophets who submitted [to Allah ] judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah , and they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers.”

The following verses may well identify the faith and belief of Khalifa and Khalifates:

…And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the wrongdoers. [5:45]

…And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient. [5:47]

“Do they then seek the judgment of (the days of) ignorance? And who is better in Judgement than Allah for a people who have firm Faith.[5: 50]

Is that, death before the age of ’40’ is a free visa to heaven?

Based on 29:53 and 46:15 Khalifa claims that whoever dies before the age of forty will go direct to heaven. He further explains that ‘the human beings will be matured only at the age of ‘40’ therefore death before ‘40’ is a free visa for Heaven! Before analyzing the above two verses which were misinterpreted or wrongly quoted by Rashad Khalifa, let us view few more verses to understand on what basis our heavenly life is decided:

[3:25] So how will it be when We assemble them for a Day about which there is no doubt? And each soul will be compensated [in full for] what it earned, and they will not be wronged.

[3:161]… Then will every soul be [fully] compensated for what it earned, and they will not be wronged.

[4:18] But repentance is not [accepted] of those who [continue to] do evil deeds up until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “Indeed, I have repented now,” or of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful punishment.

[4:48] Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.

[4:93]But whoever kills a believer intentionally – his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment.

[4:116] Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray.

[14:51] So that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.                                                   

[28:83-84] That home of the Hereafter We assign to those who do not desire praise upon the earth or corruption. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous. Whoever comes [on the Day of Judgement] with a good deed will have better than it; and whoever comes with an evil deed – then those who did evil deeds will not be recompensed except [as much as] what they used to do.

[45:22] And Allah created the heavens and earth in truth and so that every soul may be recompensed for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged.

[99:7,8] So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.

The above verses confirms that our destination is decided only based on our belief and our works and our fate would not be decided based on age, colour, language, country, etc. The following verses confirm that the punishment for those who disbelieve or lead culprit life will not be even commuted:

[2:86] Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world [in exchange] for the Hereafter, so the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be aided.

[2:161-2] Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers – upon them will be the curse of Allah and of the angels and the people, all together, Abiding eternally therein. The punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.

[3:86-88] How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed [washahidū=Shahada] that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. Those – their recompense will be that upon them is the curse of Allah and the angels and the people, all together, Abiding eternally therein. The punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.

[16:85] And when those who wronged see the punishment, it will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.                      

[35:36] And for those who disbelieve will be the fire of Hell. [Death] is not decreed for them so they may die, nor will its torment be lightened for them. Thus do we recompense every ungrateful one.

[43:74-75] Indeed, the criminals will be in the punishment of Hell, abiding eternally. It will not be allowed to subside for them, and they, therein, are in despair.

But ignoring all the above Quranic criterions’, Khalifa simply misinterpret and explain the verses 29:53 and 46:15 as whoever dies before the age of forty will go direct to heaven as they are not well matured to make decisions and to choose and follow the right path! First let us discuss about verse 29:53:

29:53 And they urge you to hasten the punishment. And if not for [the decree of] a specified term, punishment would have reached them. But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.

Khalifa explains that the above verse means anybody cannot die in whichever age they prefers as Allah decides life and death and for some he finishes the life after forty but others before forty in order to enable them to go straight to heaven. He also added that verse no. 46:15 as an additional proof for this argument!

Our points to prove Rashad’s interpretations are incorrect:

[56:50] “Are to be gathered together for the appointment of a known Day.”

[16:61]“And if Allah were to impose blame on the people for their wrongdoing, He would not have left upon the earth any creature, but He defers them for a specified term. And when their term has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].”

[2:281] “And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah . Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.”

[3:185]“Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.”

The above verses confirms that the reason why communities were not destroyed instantly for their disbelief or misbehavior and instead they have been given message and time, in order to decide, is because Allah has already decided that every community should be given a predetermined time to decide and respond based on which they will be judged on the day of resurrection. As per Quran, an individual’s death before the age of forty is no way guaranteed in getting a free pass to heaven.

Now let us discuss about 46:15:                                                                        RK’s followers simply see the verses 46:15, 46:16 and read the misinterpretations given for them by Khalifa and coming to wrong conclusions. Let us see the related verses from 46:15-20 so that we can easily grasp its context:

[46:15] “And We have enjoined upon man, to his parents, good treatment. His mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship, and his gestation and weaning [period] is thirty months. [He grows] until, when he reaches maturity and reaches [the age of] forty years, he says, “My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims.”

[46:16] “Those are the ones from whom We will accept the best of what they did and overlook their misdeeds, [their being] among the companions of Paradise. [That is]the promise of truth which they had been promised.”

[46:17] “But one who says to his parents, “Uff to you; do you promise me that I will be brought forth [from the earth] when generations before me have already passed on [into oblivion]?” while they call to Allah for help [and to their son], “Woe to you! Believe! Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth.” But he says, “This is not but legends of the former people” –

[46:18] “Those are the ones upon whom the word has come into effect, [who will be] among nations which had passed on before them of jinn and men. Indeed, they [all] were losers.”

[46:19] “And for all there are degrees [of reward and punishment] for what they have done, and [it is] so that He may fully compensate them for their deeds, and they will not be wronged.”

[46:20] “And the Day those who disbelieved are exposed to the Fire [it will be said], “You exhausted your pleasures during your worldly life and enjoyed them, so this Day you will be awarded the punishment of [extreme] humiliation because you were arrogant upon the earth without right and because you were defiantly disobedient.”

When we keenly see the verses 46:15, 16 we can understand that it relates ourselves with our parents and our children, during the age of forty human can realize the hardship of bringing up our children as righteous and we recognize the sacrifice of our parents in a more practical manner, as soon as we realize this fact we have to provide more honor to our parents and pray for them and we should submit to God’s commandment of honoring the parents.

In Quran we can see that different people gets this maturity of honoring their parents in different ages, in the case of Prophet Ismail when he was very young he respected his father, obeyed him and submitted to Allah (3:102-103). Prophet John honored his parents when he was very young (19:12-14).

Prophet Jesus honored his mother when he was a child (19:24&32). In order to find the Quran-proof that maturity comes in different ages when comparing one person with another, kindly see the following verse:

[SAHIH INTERNATIONAL] [Verse 4:6] “And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you perceive in them sound judgement, release their property to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, that they will grow up. And whoever is self-sufficient should refrain [from taking a fee]; and whoever is poor – let him take according to what is acceptable. Then when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.”

[Khalifa’s Translation] [Verse 4:6] “You shall test the orphans when they reach puberty. As soon as you find them mature enough, give them their property. Do not consume it extravagantly in a hurry, before they grow up. The rich guardian shall not charge any wage, but the poor guardian may charge equitably. When you give them their properties, you shall have witnesses. GOD suffices as reckoner.”

The above verse doesn’t say wait until they reach forty and give their property instead it says once they reach puberty we have to check whether they are mature enough, if so we have to handover their property as soon as possible. As per verse 4:6 maturity of a person take place between the ages of 12-16 approximately.

One thing we have to keep in mind and that is verse 46:15, 16 says that for a righteous person Allah accept his righteous works and forgive his sins and nowhere it says that Allah will forgive even the culprits since they are below forty years.

Apart from the verses 46:15, 16, the two consecutive verses (46:17-18) also confirms that one who disbelieve in hereafter and dishonor his parents are disbelievers and losers. The highlight is the verses 46:19-20, which repeatedly three times confirm that both the first group (46:15, 16), and the second group (46:17-18) will attain their ranks and rewards only based on their works (but not based on their ages). 

If still somebody is going to stick with the number ‘40’ then it is similar to taking verse (9:80) and arguing that if prophet Muhammad has prayed for 71 times then God might forgave the hypocrites.

[9:80] “Ask forgiveness for them, [O Muhammad], or do not ask forgiveness for them. If you should ask forgiveness for them seventy times – never will Allah forgive them. That is because they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.”

Prophet Abraham’s Vision (Dream)

Khalifa says Prophet Abraham tried to kill his son (Ismail) by believing a satanic-dream and Allah has saved Prophet Ismail’s live by preventing Prophet Abraham from human murder. Verses 37:102&104 are the proofs given by Khalifa to support his argument.

Now let us discuss about Prophet Abraham’s vision. After reading the whole verses from 37:100-111 let us conclude what it exactly says:

[37:100] My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous.”

[37:101] So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy.

[37:102] And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, “O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think.” He said, “O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast.”

[37:103] And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead,

[37:104] We called to him, “O Abraham,

[37:105] You have fulfilled the vision.” Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

[37:106] Indeed, this was the clear trial.

[37:107] And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice,

[37:108] And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:

[37:109]Peace upon Abraham.”

[37:110] Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

[37:111]Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.

  • In 37:102 When Prophet Abraham asked Ismail’s opinion (who was a Messenger and a prophet 19:54) about the dream, Ismail’s statement is to follow the command not the dream, which clarifies that attempting to sacrifice was a command as well as test for Abraham.
  •  
  • In 37:101 Allah says Ismail was a good son (who was young but well grown 37:102), whether a good, grown, prophet’s son, prophet son, will allow his father (Allah’s friend) to become a murderer?
  •  
  • 37:103 Tells both Abraham and Ismail have submitted to God by attempting and co-operating for the sacrifice.
  •  
  • 37:105&110 says since Abraham believed in what he saw in the dream, he has been rewarded.
  •  
  • In the same context 37:111 says Abraham is one who believed in God (Note: Not in Satan) Prophet Abraham had fulfilled his vision and was appreciated by Allah (37:105) and Allah had rewarded him (37:107).
  •  
  • Was it for fulfilling what the Satan has advocated, Prophet Abraham was appreciated and rewarded by Allah? Was it for the Satan’s command that the son conceded and patiently submitted to be executed?
  •  
  • Now we come to the highlight point of this argument and that is, the only mistake committed by Abraham as per Allah [SWTA]’s Quran is mentioned in verse 60:04, which is Abraham’s [P] prayer for his father.
  •  
  • If Abraham might believed in satanic dream and tried to murder his son then for no doubt the almighty Allah who doesn’t forget anything might mentioned that in verse 60:04. It is noteworthy that Allah has mentioned about Abraham’s mistake in the same verse where he says Abraham is a good example:

[26:84-86] “And grant me a reputation of honor among later generations. And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure. And forgive my father. Indeed, he has been of those astray.”

[60:4] “There has already been for you an excellent pattern in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people, “Indeed, we are disassociated from you and from whatever you worship other than Allah. We have denied you, and there has appeared between us and you animosity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone” except for the sayings of Abraham to his father, “I will surely ask forgiveness for you, but I have not [power to do] for you anything against Allah. Our Lord, upon You we have relied, and to You we have returned, and to You is the destination.”

Kindly See how Khalifa has translated for verse-[60:4] below             [60:4] A good example has been set for you by Abraham and those with him. They said to their people, “We disown you and the idols that you worship besides GOD. We denounce you, and you will see nothing from us except animosity and hatred until you believe in GOD ALONE.”* However, a mistake was committed by Abraham when he said to his father, “I will pray for your forgiveness,** but I possess no power to protect you from GOD.” “Our Lord, we trust in You, and submit to You; to You is the final destiny.

Conclusion about Prophet Abraham’s dream:

For verse [37:108] Khalifa has translated as:     

“And we preserved his history for subsequent generations.”      

This verse comes in the same context which talks about the trial for Prophet Abraham through the dream. Allah has mentioned that He has preserved Abraham’s history for the future generations. Therefore which history is saved by Allah, whether Abraham has followed Satan or whether Abraham was ready to sacrifice even his only son who born in his old age for the sake and command of Allah?

It is obvious that the human sacrifice which was so common during those days had been decided by Allah to wipe it out without trace with the good example of Abraham’s sacrifice of an animal. It is noteworthy that nowhere in this context Allah says about Satan.

So it is proven that not Abraham but Khalifa has followed some satanic dreams and tried to rewrite the meaning of Quran and the pages of history.

Turn the pages of Quran and find the dreams of prophets, you can understand that those dreams served as a type of inspiration from Allah to them, it served as a guidance for them from Allah and prophets were given the best knowledge of understanding the dreams. You can see the verses 48:27&28 to understand this concept about prophets’ dreams.

Finally: Read the following verses which talks about Prophet Abraham’s status before Allah, which came in the same context of Prophet Abraham’s dream:     

“Peace upon Abraham. Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good. Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.” [37:109-111]

Master of misinterpretations

Some of the poor styles of  Khalifa is; taking one or two verses here and there from Quran without any context or continuity, providing a lot of misinterpretations, and doing wrong translation for Quran-words, which contradicts with his own translation in many parts. The following are the best examples to show and prove his misinterpretations:

  • Why should he give the meaning “using Quran” instead of “in the Quran” in verse 17:46, which is the actual meaning of the Arabic word “FIL QURANI”. Does the RK followers doesn’t know the prayer in Quran [2:201], which says “rabbana atinafee addunya hasanatan “wafee al”-akhiratihasanatan waqina AAathaba annar” where they can easily see the meaning for the word ‘fil’!
  • In 48:27 for the Arabic word “ruʾyā” which means vision or dream, with bad intention Khalifa has translated it as “truthful vision” in order to misinterpret the meaning of the verses 37:105 where the same word (ruʾyā) comes but Khalifa translated it as dream so that he can well misinterpret the dream or vision mentioned in 37:105 as satanic dream.
  •  
  • Is there is atleast ‘one-verse’ in Quran that says or confirms that “any one of the messengers had experienced satanic dream?! I wonder why khalifa has chosen Abraham for his fabrication when he has been repeatedly certified by Allah as the best?! 
  •  
  • [4:125] “And who (is) better (in) religion than (one) who submits his face to Allah and he (is) a good-doer and follows (the) religion (of) Ibrahim (the) upright? And Allah took Ibrahim (as) a friend.”
  •  
  • For the very similar words like sadaka (Allah has fulfilled) the second word of 48:27 and sadakata (you have fulfilled) the second word of 37:105, Khalifa has translated them in two different ways. Actually both means fulfilled, but he intentionally translate sadakata-the second word of 37:105 as ‘you have believed’ in order to distort the meaning of Quran, and misinterpret the verse as “Abraham has been misled by Satan”!
  • Khalifa identifies himself as Allah in 36:83 using the footnote. In what way does the verse become relevant to Khalifa, when it speaks only about Allah?
  • He says Satan is the temporary god for earth also he adds Angels and other deities with Allah as an explanation for plural form of mentioning’s of Allah in Quran like “We, our, etc. Moreover he says human as the piece of God?!
  • When Verses 16:74 and 112:4, clearly prohibits from citing metaphors for Allah, as nothing could be compared with him:

[16:74] “So do not give examples/similitude/likenesses/parables/comparisons/images/metaphors/similarities to Allah. God knows while you do not know.”                                          

[112:4] “And there is nothing that could be compared with Him”.

Then why does Khalifa Identify Allah as Alpha, and Omega in [57:3]. Why does he or his followers identify Allah as Number 1, 9, or 19?!                                                                 

Kindly See the October 1999, Page-2, topic: over it is 19:                                                      “Nineteen embraces the first numeral (1) and the last numeral (9), as if to proclaim God’s attribute in the Quran (57:3) as the “First and the Last.” “He is the Alpha and the Omega”.

As expected Khalifa made his idol as number-19 and his followers adopted Khalifa as their idol!  Is he a messenger sent by Allah to establish monotheism or is he a messenger sent by Satan to re-establish polytheism-idol worship?! 

  • We all knew that in Arabic literature words are mentioned in masculine or feminine gender. Examples: Kithab, Quran are masculine but hell is feminine gender. Verse 74:30 says “AAalayha tisAAata AAashara” in which the word “AAalayha” is feminine. Therefore [“Over it are Nineteen”] the word “it” directly means “hell” which is feminine but not Quran which is masculine in gender! But not even knowing this basic information Khalifa’s followers claim that his mother tongue as Arabic as a point to portrait his Quran knowledge!
  • For verse [21:107]“وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ” Khalifa has translated as “We have sent you out of mercy from us towards the whole world.” Could any one of Khalifa’s followers could give the explanation from where did he get the phrase “out of mercy from us” in this verse”. All Khalifa has did is in-order to misdirect the innocents he has added this phrase in-oder to hide its real meaning and real importance! The direct and real meaning for [21:107] is “And WE have not sent you but as a mercy to the universe.”
  • Khalifa says fat of pig is Halal:
    By misinterpreting the verse (16:115), Khalifa says fat of pig (lard) is permitted because it is used in baked goods and other food products in many countries, which is mentioned in appendix-16 of his book ‘final testament’. If the pig lard is halal as it is used in baking goods in many countries, then what about pig meat as it is eaten by ever so many people in almost all countries? Is the use of fat from dead animals also permitted? The use of lard has diminished in contemporary cuisines because of health concerns posed by its saturated contents. Many restaurants in western nations have eliminated the use of lard in their kitchens because of health and religious related dietary restrictions (Ref: food and wine .com)
  • Khalifa interpret verses [74:1-2] as “O you hidden secret. Come out and warn”.                                                                                                                                                                 In footnote of 74:01 Khalifa claims that the numerical code “nineteen” that he made popular is the “hidden secret” which has been brought to spotlight in 1974 as a proof of his messenger-ship! Here we have a Question for Khalifa’s followers; Allah doesn’t says to come out and warn after 1400 years and if Allah order someone/something to come out, will it not come out suddenly?! Do they forget the list of verses which says Allah’s commands are executed instantly?           

“For anything which We have willed, We but say the word,

‘Be’ and it is!” (Qur’an 16:40)

“It is He Who gives Life and Death: when He desires a matter,

“He says to it: ‘Be’ and it is!” (Qur’an 40:68)

“He created him from dust, then said to him: ‘Be’ And he was!” (Qur’an 3: 59)

“His command, when He intends anything, is only that He says to it, ‘Be’, and it is (Qur’an 36:82).”

“And Our command is but one, as the twinkling of an eye” (Qur’an 54:50).

Chapter-16 

RASHAD KHALIFA: WITNESSES AND LESSONS FROM THE HISTORY

Following verse confirms that the life-history is also a source of authentication either to believe or disregard someone or something:

[QURAN 10:16] Say (O Muhammad): “If Allah had so willed, I should not have recited it to you nor would He have made it known to you. Verily, I have stayed among you a life time before this. Have you then no sense?”

Also the Following verse is repeatedly mentioned throughout the Quran certifying the ‘good conduct’ of messengers of Allah [SWTA] and confirms that He has preserved their history and left it as a lesson for the future generations:

Sherali’s Translation: [37-108] And WE left for him a good name among the succeeding generations”

Khalifa’s Translation: [37:108] And we preserved his history for subsequent generations.

You can also look into the following verse, which may ponder more idea over the importance of history, in Quran:  

[12:111] In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It (the Qur’an) is not a narrative which could be forged, but a verification of what is before it, and a distinct explanation of all things, and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe.


Also have you ever thought about Allah’s plan to protect the history of the evil people as an bad example so that we would never follow their ways? Example: Pharaoh’s body! See What is Allah [SWTA]’s plan:     

[10:92] So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people, of Our signs, are heedless” 

 

Also have you ever paid attention towards the following verses?

[7:84] “And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): Then see what the end of those who indulged in sin and crime was.”

 

[30:10] Then the end of those that did evil was evil, for that they cried lies to the signs of God and mocked at them.”

[28:40] “So We took him and his soldiers and threw them into the sea. So see what the end of the wrongdoers was.”

Therefore this chapter is designed to shower lights on some of the hidden parts of the history of “RASHAD KHALIFA” not on his personal life!


Rashad Khalifa, the American Covenant Messenger

Written by Ahmed Mansour, the Prominent AHL-QURAN Leader in Arabic and

Translated by Mohamed Dandan, Source:

First

1-           Rashad Khalifa claimed in 1988, that he was the messenger of the Covenant, evidenced by Almighty’s saying: (When Allah made (His) covenant with the prophets, (He said): Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and wisdom. And afterward there will come unto you a messenger, confirming that which ye possess. Ye shall believe in him and ye shall help him. He said: Do ye agree, and will ye take up My burden (which I lay upon you) in this (matter)? They answered: We agree. He said: Then bear ye witness. I will be a witness with you. (3: 81).

2-           Rashad was the one who issued a decree that his “Excellency” was meant by this verse. Rashad Khalifa did not shy away from this extremism in lying and extremism in disbelief, as he declares himself a messenger from God Almighty, and that the previous verse concerning him personally, predicts his message, that God Almighty took the Covenant and the Charter of the Prophets to believe in him (i.e., Mr. / Rashad) and to aid and support him (i.e. Mr. / Rashad too), and that the Lord of Glory, after making a covenant with all of them, and their acknowledgment of all testimony, the Almighty said, he is also a witness to their covenant with Him. All of this for Mr. Rashad.

3-           Some innocent questions evolve here: Why did not the verse specifies (Rashad Khalifa) by name, description, time and place as long as it he such great importance? What is the fate of those who died before knowing Mr. Rashad Khalifa from the first century AH and until the appearance of Mr. Rashad Khalifa’s in Tucson Arizona?

Those Millions of people, are they believers? If they were believers, is their faith complete or less complete? Will their incomplete faith bring them into paradise? As long as the verse is talking about all the Prophets from Noah and all those who followed him, then it is a serious matter, it includes all human beings living and dead. 


Accordingly, humans therefore are divided into only two parts: the juggernaut, the vast majority who have not heard of brother Rashad, and those who believed in and followed brother Rashad in Tucson, Arizona.

Even if we assume that all residents of Arizona (6 million) unanimously agreed on the faith in his Excellency Rashad Khalifa, this does not change anything. It remains (something wrong) in it, the basis of this (something wrong) of believing Rashad and his followers is that they raise Rashad above the prophets, not being satisfied by claiming he is the messenger of God.  


If you were to re-read the verse and imagined it to mean this creature, Rashad Khalifa, it will confirm to you that they actually raise this creature above the Prophets.

Rashad exploited his discovery of the peculiarity of number 19 in the Quran, to turn it into (Business), he even rigged some results in his favor. This discovery does not mean that he who came upon it, is of true faith, because the Exalted Allah’s ability to preserve the Quran exploits and causes human beings in conservation and preservation, no matter how far their disbelief reach.

And Mohammedans, followers of man-made faiths, did and they are still doing the preservation of the Holy Quran, written in the “Othmani” style against any distortion, and if anyone of them were told to omit any written and numbered verse in the Koran he would be filled with rage and anger. 


At the same time, he believes in the abrogation the Quran, in the sense of cancellation of Qur’anic legislation, and believes in the Prophet’s intercession negated by 150 Qur’anic verses.

Second

1-Rashad Khalifa’s followers do not know that Rashad Khalifa himself was the first rejecter of his claims. I was with him in his group when he announced he was the messenger of Allah. I rejected this, he felt threatened by my split with him, and he postponed the subject, and claimed it was only just a joke. 


He then returned to the same theme and I ran away from his mosque, and disappear away from the eyes of his ardent followers, and I kept in my hideaway in the city of Tucson until he held his conference, which was prepared for the inauguration of his apostleship,

I declared  my expiation of him, and wrote a letter in English uncovering and exposing him, and refuted his claim that who dies before forty enters Paradise whatever he  might have done, and that was his Omen to his followers, and where it is alleged that Almighty God gave him. 


His conference failed because those who came to attend were eager to see me, the Azharite Sheikh, who was imprisoned in Egypt because of his denial of the Sunna, who Rashad Khalifa recruited and saved from the jaws of the Elders of delusion in Al-Azhar.

Rashad has stepped up his propaganda around me and my profound knowledge of Islam, and sent messages in my name, far and beyond,  in the expiation of Al-Azhar and cursing its elders to circumvent my  return to Egypt and to be at his command in his project, which I did not know anything about, his same messenger’s allegations. 


His propaganda about me made me famous among his followers in America and Canada, I saw its manifestations when I visited, accompanied by him, San Francisco and the city of Vancouver in Canada. He had many followers in America and abroad in that time.

Rashad Khalifa fell into a state of (confusion) when I confronted him in his mosque, rejecting his claim of being messenger of Allah. At that time, he was in possession of my papers, my passport and all of my writings in his office. 


The discussion between us was conducted in Arabic, his American secretary did not understand any of it, he went out to the (gym) to end our discussion, I took the opportunity and asked her to let me enter the office to take my belongings, which I did, and with the help of one of the pioneers of the mosque, escaped in a taxi, who found me an apartment in a remote location, concealing my address from Rashad.

Rashad had to hold the conference on schedule, and was faced by everyone’s question about the absent Azharite Sheikh, who was supposed to reinforce his claim to be the messenger of the Covenant. He was in real deep severe trouble, he could not attack me after all the praises he heaped on me, and as long as he claimed to them that he was receiving revelation, why didn’t  he know that this Azharite Sheikh would oppose and turn on him.

As they say: (Trickery caught up with its perpetrator, and the bad cunning engulfed its originator). The deterioration and failure of Rashad Khalifa’s conference made it clear to most of his followers that he was deceitful and a liar, especially with my messages to some of them who I knew. His condition of deterioration remained unchanged until he was murdered in his mosque, after more than a year of my return to Egypt.

2- According to my observation at that time, I see in him that his real idol was in prestige, wealth and fame. Rashad wanted fame, money and prestige via the American style and culture which allows fame , prestige and wealth of any televised religious advocate like Swaggart, who used to echo in his theatre in front of thousands of followers that God told him so and so and inspired him such and such, and found thousands to believe him and cry out in sympathy with him and support him, especially among elderly women who wasted their lives and their youth in promiscuity, then entered at a later stage of their lives in (religious shamelessness) or (religious madness) or a( preachers’ mania), and found those preachers in wait to swallow their savings with the sweet promise of salvation in the company of Christ and the heaven of Jesus.

Rashad was an admirer of preacher Swaggart, longed for some of his fame, and asked to debate him more than once after the famous debate between Swaggart and Deedat. Swaggart did not respond to Rashad’s request and ignored him. Rashad’s eyes were on the elderly wealthy American women, and in the end his wealth and what he earns will not avail him.

3 -Rashad Khalifa was a Sufi, he believed in saints’ blessings, God Almighty knows, and enough that the Almighty is all-Knower, he spoke with some of his companions, in front of me, telling them about aspects and features, about me to prove that I’m  one of the righteous  saints.! .. And he forgot that I am an ardent opponent of Sufism and one of the biggest who exposed the myths of special attributes of saints and the paranormal.

But they were attempts to corrupt me to be like him and support him in the allegation that he was the messenger of the Covenant. I remember once during one of our discussion, he said to me that my name (Ahmed) is mentioned in the Quran, which indicates a personal reference to me being a messenger. That was a hilarious funny allegation, for there were millions with the name (Ahmed), and (Ahmad) mentioned in Surat A-ssef is the seal of messengers of the Lord of Glory.

I do not slander (Rashad Khalifa) after his death, because I believe that God Almighty will hold me accountable on every word I say or write. I write a testimony I will be responsible for in front of the Lord of Glory, I and my opponent will come in front of the Almighty one to judge between us.

(Rashad Khalifa) conned and deceived me, taking advantage of my painful situation and my need for someone to help me, in my plight after I came out of prison in 1987, after my besieged life in Egypt, not being able to make a living or depart from that unjust country.

He took advantage of my plight in a scheme in order to use me I knew nothing about. Despite all “carrot and stick approach”, I stood against him, and ended my relationship with him.

My story has living witnesses:                                                                                                            Noble people who assisted me in that time. They are Mahmoud Pirouz and his wife Dr. Mehri pirouz, the now Quranists’ leaders in California, Mohamed Ahmed and his wife, and Dr. Ali Izadi in Canada.  


When I departed ways with Rashad Khalifa because of his false claim of prphecy, and disappeared out of fear for my life from him in the city of Tucson. Mehri and Mahmoud stood by me during in my ordeal.

I had never met them before this.  I was penniless, living in hiding. One day an urgent message from my  bank came to inform me that my account was overdraft,  then I received a phone call from Canada, Mr. Mohamed Ahmed, May God Almighty endow him with heath, went overboard in trying to locate me, and sent me much needed funds. He, along with the Pirouz family (Mahmoud & Mehri), also Dr. Ali Aizady, May God Almighty blesses them all, stood by my side.

They asked me to travel to San Francisco to be with Mahmoud  & Mehri Pirouz. I requested that I stay until Rashad Khalifa is inaugurated as a messenger, to respond to him. After the failure of the conference, I traveled to San Francisco, and I lived there for several months under the auspices of the Pirouz family, then out of fear for my children, returned to Egypt, to be welcomed at the airport, and sent directly straight to the state security prison for two nights of the harshest that I have lived in my life.

My connection with the Pirouz family remained close, I was honoured by their visit to me in Cairo, and Dr. Mehri gave a lecture at Ibn Khaldun Center weekly forum, a think tank run by me in 1990,s. Those noble people used to be sympathizers with Rashad Khalifa, then they discovered the truth, and abandoned him, and when they learned of my split with him, they kept looking for me, to extend a helping hand in my plight.

Is Rashad The Most Influential Figure In The Quranist Movement?

Eyad Nusayr’s Question From Tucson, AZ to Ahmed Mansour:           

Dear Dr. Mansour, I have been debating Edip Yuksel on facebook and he made the following claim about you: “Mansour was influenced by Rashad and became a Quranist” I defended you from this claim and said that you reached your conclusions without Rashad Khalifah’s help and declared that I would email you.

Edip is trying to impose Rashad as the most influential figure in the Quranist movement. Since you are a historian, could you please clarify the role that Rashad played in the Quranist movement in general and his influence on your personal development. It would also be helpful to write a historical synopsis of the Quranist movement in general. To see my debate with Edip please follow the link below:

-Kind regards Eyad Nusayr Tucson, AZ

Ahmed Mansour’s Reply:                                                                     

Rashad Khalifa believed in himself as a messenger who had revelation from God. When he claimed himself as a messenger of God, he published an article saying (God insists). So, he was bluffing when he said (Quran and nothing but Quran).

I said to him, if you claim a Holy revelation from Allah, then what the difference between you and the Sunni scholars?  He evacuated me from his mosque because of this. In my belief, Rashad Khalifa was not Quranist at all. He was a real Sufi.

Before knowing Rashad Khalifa, I was persecuted in Al Azhar during (1977 – 1980) and in 1985. This was because of my books and researches that established the hard core of the Quranic trend. In 1987, I was fired from Al Azhar, and put in jail because of my eleventh book (The sinful Muslim). This was before meeting Rashad Khalifa.

Coming to his mosque in Tucson in 1988, there were a lot of discussions and debate between the two of us in Arabic Language. This debate proved to me how ignorant he was in the difference between the classic Arabic Language and the unique Arabic Quranic terminology. He was also very ignorant in the Islamic fields and Muslim traditions and the gap between Islam and Muslims. This Arabic knowledge is the necessary backbone for any Quranic scholar.

My English was so maimed in that time that I could not read any of his writings. This includes his translation of the Quran and his newsletters. I had a lot of time after leaving him in 1988 to improve my English. In some months in late 1988, I read most of his translation of the Quran and discovered some outrageous errors. I understood why he used to keep me talking in Arabic only with him to isolate me from his people. It was a very painful time. I try to forget it.

Dear Osama Abdullah, Ramadan Kareem.

I am taking the liberty in sending you my recent message to the so-called Muslim organization, submission, after I came across of its web site two days ago via internet. Unfortunately, I never heard about the heretic claims of Rashad Khalifa until lately as I was always busy in my scientific research across Africa, Asia, Middle East and Latin America.

The last time I saw Khalifa was in 1975- 76 in Tripoli, Libya, when we both were working there. The message below summarizes my personal view about him. Feel free to comment on the message and possibly circulating it to whom you see fit and of concern.

Sincerely yours,

Asunto: the fraudlent messenger of covenant

Today, I just ran into your website and was astonished by the false claims expressed by a fraudulent person by the name Dr. Rashad Khalifa whom I happened to know personally, as we both were Egyptian graduate students of agriculture in the US 1959-66.

Again we met in Cairo 1966-1968 as we both were researchers in the Ministry of Agriculture and the Univ of Ein-Shams and lately in Tripoli, Libya in early 1970’s as I was a professor at Tripoli Univ and Khalifa was a researcher at the newly founded Arab Institute for Development that was headed at the time by the ex Libyan colleague Dr. Saad Bin-Hemid (a prof of mathematics) to attract Arab expatriates.

Khalifa was known by his continuous deception, lying, misconduct, exploitation, and fraudulent behavior. First, he claimed to be a chemist while the official certificates of the Bsc, Msc, PhD, indicated that he was an agriculturist-horticulturist (Bsc from Ein-Shams Univ, Cairo , Msc, Univ of Arizona, Tucson , and PhD , Univ of California, Riverside ).

He had defected from Egypt in 1968 under a false claim of taking his American wife to a visit to her family in Tucson, but never returned to Egypt where we both were committed to serve our country for a minimum of 7 years as we had government scholarships to pursue our graduate studies in the US . Khalifa’s father, as I knew him, was a cleric employee in Egypt with middle level education and not an eminent Muslim Sufi as claimed by his son.

Sufism in Islam is supposed to be a way of self-discipline, meditation and fully abiding by the letters of Shari’a laws of the Muslim holy book and the stated religious teachings. As a young adult ( from 13 -18 years old), I was fascinated by Sufism but later, as I found that the way it was practiced was mostly a cover of misbehavior and misconduct, I broke away with its followers called DARAWEESH ( somehow like the nuns and monks in Catholic church misbehaving )!!.

While Khalifa was contracted to work in Libya with a very high salary under the pretext that he is capable as a “claimed-chemist” to turn Libya into a protein-rich and exporter country by applying a “secretive” methodology to their vast oil resources that he failed to reveal to a committee of experts ( of which I was a member representing the Tripoli Univ), I faced him with the facts to the contrary of his claims.

When I pressed him to write down details of his project including the chemical-biological procedures that he will apply in producing protein from oil, he declined and submitted his resignation to the director of the Institute, after a 2-y stay doing nothing other than abusing the Libyan media and the public good-well by talking about Islam and lecturing in TV.

Suddenly the “eminent self-claimed and false chemist” turned into a self-claimed Muslim scholar/theologian who abused the generosity of the US society, freedom and democracy by claiming himself the awaited-for DIVINE MESSENGER OF COVENANT, citing the Bible and the Koran!!.

He amassed huge amount of money, by donations, via deceiving many Muslim countries including the Libyans and the Sauidis by his claim of discovering and deciphering the “Divine Secret Code” of the Muslim book, the Koran based on a mysterious numerical calculation using the number 19 as a base and cornerstone number ( some of the Jews claimed something similar centuries ago).

Khalifa apparently paid for his fraudulent attitude by his life as he was assassinated by some zealous Muslim in Tucson , Az , 1990. So he was another example of JIM JONES, both abused financially and sexually their naïve followers as it was later revealed by their victims. It is about time the learned societies worldwide eradicate those NUTS………..m. elsharkawy.

Rashad Khalifa’s Rape Case – The Hidden Secret

As everyone [except the new-comers to Deen-E-Khalifa; yes, for them  it is still a hidden secret] knows, in 1979 Rashid Khalifah was arrested for trying to rape a girl.  Somehow, the girl avoided it.  But Rashid Khalifah did dishonor her by touching her body.  Khalifah admitted this to the police.  You can check the references of this incident at the end of this discussion. 

I have quoted the contents of Wikipedia on this incident.  I have also quoted the ‘Tucson Citizen’ Newspaper article.  This article is not available on any website because it appeared in 1979 before the internet era.  

However, under the link given below a scanned copy of the article is available.  It loads a bit slowly and print isn’t too clear but still it is legible: http://www.answering-christianity.com/rk_news_paper_article.htm                           


Here’s what Online Wikipedia writes on his criminal charges:

“In October, 1979, Khalifa was accused of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and sexual contact with a minor. The accuser, a 16-year-old-girl, testified at a hearing that Khalifa sexually molested her while recruiting her for research on the human aura. 

There was no evidence of intercourse found when the girl was examined at a local hospital; however, Justice of the Peace James P. West ruled there was sufficient evidence to hold Khalifa for trial on the charges.”

This is what the article on rape charges against Rashad Khalifa, which originally appeared in the “Tucson Citizen,” on October 6, 1979, p. 2B. [See the “Tucson Citizen” News Paper Article] clearly states:

“. . . A 16-year-old-girl testified that he [RK] raped her while supposedly recruiting her for a United Nations research project.”

“According to the girl, Khalifa recruited her to do research on the aura, a luminous radiation that supposedly surrounds the body, and met her Sept. 3 at an East Side office for that purpose.”

“The girl said Khalifa asked her to remove her clothing so that it wouldn’t interfere with her aura and after massaging several parts of her body, he proceeded to have sexual relations with her.”

“…Khalifa admitted to the police that he had manipulated the girl’s breasts during his research. . . .”

“Justice of The Peace James West held a three-day hearing, and found sufficient evidence to order Khalifa to “stand trial on charges of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and sexual contact with a minor.” At the time of this incident Rashad was 43, was married, and had two children.


Here is what submission.org [http://www.submission.org/khalifa.html] said about the case [For your cleverness, now they have smartly removed the information from their site for hiding it from the new-comers saying “We are very sorry, but the page you have requested doesn’t seem to exist!”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Rashad Khalifa was . . . accused of sexual harassment (not rape) . . . His accusation came in the middle of his most active period of his life trying to derail him but he was smarter and did not allow the case to drag on, and distract him from his religious activities, and his message (as his enemies were hoping.)                                                                                    

HE ENDED THIS ACCUSATION IN THE FASTEST WAY POSSIBLE IN THE USA COURT SYSTEM, TO PLEAD NO-CONTEST TO CLOSE IT AND GO BACK TO HIS BUSINESS. NO CONTEST IS NO ADMISSION OF GUILT BUT PERMISSION FOR THE COURT TO FINISH THE CASE FASTER IN A MATTER AGREEABLE TO ALL PARTIES. . . 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Though cloaked in denial, the submission organization post actually contains a KEY ADMISSION! Submission.org has stated above <No contest is no admission of guilt> but as a matter of law, this is just not TRUE. Read how Bouvier’s Law Dictionary (3rd edition) defines such a plea:

“A plea sometimes accepted in criminal cases . . . whereby the defendant does not DIRECTLY admit himself to be guilty, but TACITLY ADMITS IT by throwing himself on the mercy of the court . . .” Vol. 2, p. 2352, emphasis added.

There is a tactical reason defendants will make such a plea: “It is NOT ADMISSIBLE in a civil proceeding on the same facts to show that the defendant was guilty. . .” Ibid.

This means that the plea was done in such a way to assure that RK would not be admitting liability in any civil suit the victim or her family may have brought.


Submission.org has stated above < PERMISSION FOR THE COURT TO FINISH THE CASE FASTER IN A MATTER AGREEABLE TO ALL PARTIES> “Does this not meant compromise against the true justice” 


See how Khalifa has translated for verses from 72:13-15 about believers, submitters and compromisers:


[72:13] ‘When we heard the guidance, we believed therein. Anyone who believes in his Lord will never fear any injustice nor any affliction.


[72:14]’Among us are the submitters, and among us are the compromisers.” As for those who submitted, they are on the right path.


[72:15]As for the compromisers, they will be fuel for Gehenna.


More disturbing things about RK’s statutory rape case:           

1) A judge who heard all the evidence and find probable cause to require RK should stand for the trial. It is disturbing as the court has ordered to find out whether is there were any other girls who have been molested in the same way! And this is what the judge who presided over RK’s preliminary hearing has found since the case was bound over for trial before RK plea-bargained.

2) One of the arguments that have been placed in the court in favor of Khalifa was “Why the girl did not tried to relieve her from the hold of Khalifa [I believe the intended meaning was does she also liked it or enjoyed it, because I believe under US Laws if both the parties agreed then sex is not an offense]. 

The humble reply of the girl was resembling ‘that she got frightened by that unexpected approach’! I request everyone should personally go-through the news paper article before coming to any conclusion.   

Tucson Citizen Newspaper article: In the link below see the snap shot of the Arizona “Tucson Citizen,” October 6, 1979, p. 2B, news paper regarding Rashid Khalifa’s rape case with a teenager: http://www.answering-christianity.com/rk_news_paper_article.htm

If anyone go through the above news paper article line-by-line and compare the attitudes of Prophet Joseph, who has been blasphemed with an alleged rape case [by a vice, evil and a cunning woman] with Rashad Khalifa‘s behavior, approach, and attitude in this matter, everyone would conclude that Rashad Khalifa as a fake messenger. 


I suggest everyone to use a “match the following table” to compare the attitudes and get the suggested results!

“Regarding Khalifa’s Decision of Changing the Qibla:

Earth is NOT flat as khalifates still believe. No one can give them knowledge except Allah [SWTA]. But those who ponder on this have clearly seen that the earth is approximately round. Earth’s shadow on moon is visible at Moon Eclipse, and it is always round. Other proofs of roundness are observations; when a sailing-away ship is seen on the horizon for a distance it vanishes slowly going below horizon, etc. 


Regarding the Qibla direction, Khalifates debate [based on their leader-Khalifa’s advice] whether the direction for North America as being North-East or South-East, is because of their lack of understanding that the earth is not flat. Therefore they should not look at the flat map. The round earth gives a different perspective. 


If they look at the globe then they would see that the direction from Alaska to Makkah is due North, although Makkah is South of Alaska. If there were a minaret over Ka’bah that was so high that it reaches the sky, then you could see it from Nova Scotia and it would be in North-East direction. 


In fact the sun comes approximately overhead above Ka’bah on two dates every year [May 28 at 9:18 UT, July 15 at 9:27 UT]. That is like a minaret over ka’bah. Any one can Read about it on the Qibla direction page: http://www.moonsighting.com/qibla.html 


Therefore the correct direction of Qibla, from North America in general is North-East, except on North-west corner of USA and Alaska where Qibla is almost North.


Believers knew well that Qibla is the noblest of directions as it was ordained by Allah [SWTA]. Just like how Khalifa has taken the religion as a vanity and tried to introduce a new scripture [Final Testament], new hadhiths (his own hadiths), new prayer system, new criminal laws, etc., the same way Khalifa was also determined to change the direction of Qibla; in-order to make the religion completely uncertain for the existing believers and confusing for the new converts! 

Khalifa has advised his followers to take the direction of the Qibla as South-East from Tucson, Arizona instead of North-East, which is considered as the direction of Qibla by the Muslim [Note: Not the Ahmadiyyas] Mosques in Arizona, USA. [A living example would be Islamic Center of Tucson, Visit:  http://www.islamicfinder.org/getitWorld.php?id=11348]. 

The following ‘part of the post’ originally written by Abd Ul-Rahman Lomax would clarify the tricky games played by Khalifa in changing the Qibla:

By Abd Ul-Rahman Lomax, Formally accepted Islam in 1971”

In one conversation I had with him [Rashad Khalifa], we were discussing the direction of Mecca, specifically from Tucson. There are two basic ideas for determining the direction: the constant-compass-heading direction and the great circle, shortest-distance-over the surface direction.

From Tucson, ESE [East-southeast] and NNE [North-northeast] as I recall. Khalifa had worked out a demonstration that it was ESE that involved an idea that the direction through the earth, the “absolute” direction, would be ESE. It was completely bogus, i.e., if the argument were followed, it indicated NNE. I showed him. He then gave me another reason for ESE. It was also bogus.

We went through several of these, and, remarkably, he would accept each argument, but then present another. And then he came to the final argument. “I know it is SSE because God told me.” At the time, I didn’t have the wits to ask him the questions that would now be obvious to me. I just knew that I was in the presence of what I call “paranoid thinking,” for lack of a better term, and I gave up.

God did *not* tell me the direction, except in what I can see. (And I wrote a book on this topic once, which I never published because Nuh Keller’s book came out.)                                                                              

I published my findings about Khalifa on the internet, mostly on the newsgroup soc.religion.islam. An entire book was devoted to “refuting” me, by Edip Yuksel, “Running like zebras.” I just looked and it is still out there: http://www.free-minds.org/sites/default/files/Running.pdf

{Note: Are interested in knowing Nuh Keller’s book named ‘Port in a Storm’; A Fiqh Solution to the Qibla of North America? kindly go through the following information about it: This widely acclaimed book settles the question of the physical direction of Mecca from North America in the first thirty pages, after which it presents to readers for the first time the 1998 Fatwa of al-Azhar on the North American qibla. From this point of departure, the author surveys such major contemporary issues as the relation between religion and science, the Sacred and profane, scholars and engineers, ijtihad and taqlid.

Combining traditional Islamic law, a clear exposition of the complex geographical issues, and the author’s own meetings and correspondence with twenty-three contemporary scholars from seven Muslim lands, the book is a journey of discovery not only for Western Muslims, but everyone interested in Sacred Law in a modern world.

Port in a Storm is an essential component of any collection of modern scholarly texts on Islamic legal issues. The book addresses issues such as the direction of prayer for Muslims in North America, the grounds for consensus building in the Muslim community with regards to legal rulings and the relationship between Islamic law and technological advancement.

This book was a finalist in the prestigious British Book Design and Production Awards 2002 and has received wide critical acclaim.}                                                                                                                                          For Source Visit: https://www.quora.com/Who-is-Rashad-Khalifa-How-he-became-popular-Why-do-some-Muslims-hate-him

Now let us see the hard times of Edip Yuksel, the friend and follower of Rashad Khalifa had faced when he insisted the followers of Deen-e-Khalifa to follow the correct Qibla:

The Perpetual Test

When some people questioned our direction for prayers in the Masjid Tucson, the members of our community reacted differently. Those of us who were making fun of Muhammadans for disputing over the first day of Ramadan started disputing over a matter of similar simplicity.

Finding the direction of Ka’ba was no more difficult than finding the first day of the crescent. Some members of our community who were comfortably asking astronomers when to start fasting developed allergy against the astronomers and experts.

When we invited an astronomer to the Masjid to demonstrate the direction of Mecca on the GLOBE and to answer the questions, none of those who turn to the wrong direction asked a question nor challenged the accuracy of the demonstration.

This visual demonstration, although took less than five minutes, was protested by some. They claimed that their Quranic study was interrupted by that “disbeliever” astronomer. Without knowing our guest, they insulted him and told him to get out of the Masjid.

The hypocrisy of using the Quranic study as an excuse to avoid and suppress the truth was evident in the fact that the same people were not hesitating in spending dozens of minutes on personal stories or jokes during the Quranic studies. The direction of the prayer somehow became unQuranic after the truth of the matter became evident.

After reading several articles written by experts and after talking with astronomers and those who are experts in Global Positioning Systems, it became evident that the direction of Ka’ba from Tucson was North-East. There is clear consensus among scientists and experts.

Their argument is very clear and convincing for those who have open minds. Despite the scientific fact, many in our community, inspired by the flat map of Mercator’s Projection, continued turning their face to a wrong direction.

This issue was ignored for months. Finally, in a Quranic study, we discussed the issue. Those of us, who changed the Qibla based on the knowledge we have acquired, talked in unity. We said that facing something means facing the shortest line between you and the object.

The shortest line on the GLOBE surely is the shortest curve. You might connect yourself and the object of your direction with many imaginary lines, but the only different ones are the shortest and longest ones. If you face the longest connecting line you will be turning your back, but if you face the shortest one you will be facing it. Thus, the shortest curve connecting Tucson to Mecca shows the North-East direction.

In fact, those who insist on turning to East or South-East also have employed the same “shortest line” principle, but on a FLAT EARTH. Connecting your location with Mecca with the shortest line on a MERCATOR’S FLAT MAP does not coincide with the reality of GOD’S ROUND PLANET.

Those who were insisting on turning their face to the wrong direction had many different reasons. The five different reasons that were cited in one meeting were:

  1. “I turn to East, because turning to North-East is too complicated. I do not understand their argument.” This person, while acknowledging her ignorance on the subject, neither read the articles on the subject nor asked any questions to clarify the issue. She arrogantly insisted on the wrong Qibla claiming that it was easier from the correct Qibla. She simply chose a distorted flat map to the globe.
  1. “I follow the Quran alone. There are only ‘East’ and ‘West’ in the Quran. So, I turn to East. There is no a direction called North-East.” This person knowingly abused the verses of the Quran to justify the wrong Qibla. She knew that there were plural forms of East and West in the Quran (7:137; 37:5; 70:40). She also knew that every direction could be defined in terms of only East and West. She could not answer how could people in Medina (a city North of Mecca) face Ka’ba according to her theory, but she insisted on turning to the wrong direction.
  1.  “I turn to East, for a spiritual reason.” When we questioned what was the spiritual reason that person acknowledged that it was the practice of the “Messenger of the Covenant.” She knew that it was called Sunna and she was not ready to accept the fact that she has replaced the old Sunna with a newer version [Sunnathe-Khalifa]. When she was warned of creating another authority besides God’s word, she tried to defend her position by suggesting digging a tunnel between Tucson and Mecca.                                                               

When we challenged her by asking whether she would correct her direction if the tunnel she suggested showed the North-East, she could not answer. This incredible conversation sounded like a miraculous fulfillment of verse 6:35 that mentions a bizarre aargument voiced by mushriks.

  1.  “I turn to North-East when I pray at home, but for the sake of unity I turn to East when I pray at Masjid.” This person, ironically, was the same person who gave a khutba warning us against peer pressure just a week before. He was turning to the wrong direction to preserve the unity!
  1.  “Well, we follow the walls. The walls of the Masjid are lined up East-West, so we turn our face to East.” Accepting the contractors and masons as the indicators of direction for the Salat prayer was the so bizarre idea that needs no further comment. This argument reminded me the psychological, economical and political walls in the minds of people. Interestingly, this “wall theory” closed the arguments and it was perhaps accepted as the best theory.

There were others who tried to save their tradition [Qibla change implemented by Rashad Khalifa] by playing with linguistics. They claimed that if you turn to North-East, the Qibla changes to South-East after passing the North Pole.

This people are so ignorant of astronomy that they think the imaginary lines such as Parallels, or Poles that resulted from the rotation of the Earth or its magnetic force would have influence on the direction of locations on the Earth. If they could simply manage to imagine themselves on the North Pole, they would find out that they could not face each other according to their silly theory.

And there were others who did not express any “reason” at all. Perhaps they just did not care. They did not try to justify the wrong direction by flimsy excuses and silly reasons. The comfort of following the majority [majority among the Khalifates] and their “infallible [Rashad Khalifa]” messenger was sufficient for them.

Now kindly read the following verses so that you would get more insights towards the Questions who is Khalifa and whom the “Khalifates” really are:

“The Signs of Allah have they sold for a miserable price, and (many) have they hindered from His way: evil indeed are the deeds they have done. (9:9)

“Those who behave arrogantly on the earth in defiance of right – them I will turn away from My signs: Even if they see all the signs, they will not believe in them; and if they see the way of right conduct, they will not adopt it as the way; but if they see the way of error, that is the way they will adopt.For they have rejected our signs, and failed to take warning from them. (7:146)

“And squat not on every road, breathing threats, hindering from the path of Allah those who believe in Him, and seeking in it something crooked; But remember how ye were little, and He gave you increase. And hold in your mind’s eye what was the end of those who did mischief. (7:86)

“Those who would hinder (men) from the path of Allah and would seek in it something crooked: they were those who denied the Hereafter.” (7: 45)

“Those who reject Faith and do wrong,- Allah will not forgive them nor guide them to any-way (4: 168)

“Those who reject Faith and keep off (men) from the way of Allah, have verily strayed far, far away from the Path. (4: 167)

“If anyone contends with the Messenger [Muhammad] even after guidance has been plainly conveyed to him, and follows a path other than that becoming to men of Faith, We shall leave him in the path he has chosen, and land him in Hell,- what an evil refuge! (4:115)

“Hast you not turned your vision to those who were given a portion of the Book? They traffic in error, and wish that you should lose the right path. (4: 44)

*Kindly move further to view Chapter-17-What is your proof; Khalifates’ favorite question*

Chapter-17

What is your proof; Khalifates’ favorite question:

One of the favorite questions of Rashad Khalifa; the founder of Deen-e-Khalifa and Khalifates; the followers of Deen-e-Khalifa is; ‘what is your proof to confirm that Quran is from Allah [SWTA]!’

Let us verify their question honestly with Quran-Alone so that their intentions would be auto-exposed, Insha Allah. They are intended to tell that; we want some Human Harvested Humbugs, and Man-Made Make-Ups to believe in Almighty’s words instead of simply believe in it!

As per their and their Idol-Leader Khalifa’s ideology, believing in what Allah’s words based on His scripture is a blind faith because their soul suggests them to seek something out of Quran [numerology] to believe in it and follow it!

Let us verify their expectation [we want some miracle to believe Quran as the word of Allah (SWTA)], in the light of Quran, which may gently tear their masks; the masks of Ibless, Saamri, Rashad Khalifa, and Khalifates!

Do we really need miracles?

[17:59] And nothing has prevented Us from sending signs except that the former peoples denied them. And We gave Thamud the she-camel as a visible sign, but they wronged her. And We send not the signs except as a warning.”

The above verse clearly states that there would be no more miracles come from Allah [SWTA] as He has already recorded ‘the rejection of miracles by the people of the past’ and approved it as a good reason for not sending any more miracles, except reasoning, truths, wise arguments, applying logics and believing and obeying Allah [SWTA] and his messenger [P]!

Shall We Ask For Miracles?

Asking what is the proof to prove ‘Quran is from Allah [SWTA] is nothing but asking for miracles to believe in the words of Allah [SWTA]! Does Quran promote us to request for miracles? Definitely not, but treat it as a sign of disbelief!

Even if you are very closer to Allah [SWTA]!! If you ask for witnessing a miracle then the question of Allah [SWTA] is; do you not believe?! Kindly view the verse below to understand, how Allah [SWTA] questions his messenger-friend Ibrahim [P] when he asks for a proof!

[2-260] And when Abraham said, My Lord, show me how You give life to the dead, He said: Do you not believe? He said: Yes, but that my heart may be at ease. He said: Then take four birds, then call them to incline to you, then place on every mountain a part of them, then class them, they will come to you flying; and know that Allah is Mighty, Wise.”

Here you have to note down an important information and that is Abraham [P] was also given scripture [The Scriptures of Abraham and Moses 87:19], he does not ask for a proof to believe the scripture but when he felt resurrection was unimaginable for his comprehension so he asked for that, before showing how the resurrection happens the very first and the only question from Allah [SWTA] is; do you not believe?!

Also kindly note down that it was not shown to his followers, not even for his closest friends [Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim and those with him…60:4] who were assisting Abraham [P] in accomplishing the mission from Allah [SWTA]!

Not only for Abraham [P] but even for the disciples of Jesus [a messenger blessed with immense miracles] they were not encouraged to ask for a single miracle for themselves but when they asked for a single miracle see how Allah [SWTA] and his messenger Jesus [P] warn and condemn (respectively), the miracle-seekers?!       

A Table Laden with Food:

The fifth chapter of the Quran, “The Table Laden with Food”–named after this miracle of Jesus. Quran narrates how the disciples of Jesus requested him to ask Allah [SWTA] to send down a table laden with food as a miraculous proof so that they can understand that the words of Jesus from Allah [SWTA] are true:

[5:112-114] When the disciples said: O Jesus, son of Mary! Is your Lord able to send down for us a table spread with food from heaven?  He said: Observe your duty to God, if ye are true believers.  They said: We desire to eat of it and our hearts be at rest, and that We may know that you have spoken truth to us, and that We may be witnesses thereof.  Jesus, son of Mary, said: ‘O God, our Lord, send down for us a Table laden with food out of heaven, that shall be for us a recurring festival, the first and last of us, and a miracle from You.  And provide us our sustenance, for You are the best of providers!”

[5: 115] Allah said: “I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted on anyone among (all) the ‘Alamin (Universe).”

What is the reply of Jesus in the verse 5:112 in response to his disciples when they asked for a miracle? Reply of Jesus: Observe your duty to God, if ye are true believers! [I.e. do not ask for miracles like disbelievers but continue to be believers by observing your duty to Allah SWTA]!

What is the response of Allah [SWTA] to Jesus when finally/eventually he asked a miracle for his disciples? Allah [SWTA] replied / issued a warning statement saying “I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted on anyone in the Universe.”

As we see in 17:59 miracles through messengers are warnings whereas guidance through a messenger is a mercy […and that We may make him (Jesus) a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us {Allah}… 19:21]! Why miracle through messengers is a warning? I.e. if you disbelieve after seeing a miracle then you would be especially responsible for your denial, and Allah (SWTA) would take care of the deniers!         

As per Allah [SWTA]’s statement in 5: 115 [Allah replied, “I am sending it (miracle) to you, but if anyone of you turns back to disbelief, I will make him suffer a torment that no one has ever suffered] and…

As per Rashad Khalifa’s Proclamation in November 1989 in his news bulletin, Submitters Perspective [i.e. “Divine Proclamation through Gabriel: Like the time of Noah: Only those who stand with God’s messenger [Rashad Khalifa] will be saved.” “…The angel Gabriel has conveyed to me God’s plan: those who refuse to stand by His Messenger of the Covenant [Rashad Khalifa] will be utterly destroyed. I was told specifically that it will be like the time of Noah: Only those who stand by God’s messenger [Rashad Khalifa] will be saved.”]!

…if the human harvested humbugs and manmade make-ups i.e. 19-numerological calculations are miracles of the miracles then definitely all who disbelieved in it might be already devastated [i.e. I won’t be writing this book to you]!

Surprisingly Rashad Khalifa’s messenger-ship or his 19-miracle has not been mentioned in the Quran anywhere but still Khalifates are able to see them everywhere in the Quran as they have taken Khalifa as their idol!

As stated in this book ‘Rashad Khalifa identifies himself as Allah in 36:83 using the footnote. In what way does the verse become relevant to Rashad Khalifa, when it speaks only about Allah [SWTA]? When this question was raised to Lisa Giles, the frontier submitter-one of the closest associate of Rashad Khalifa, kindly see her reply was for the same:

[Question-1 by a submitter through E-mail to Lisa dated: Sun, Aug 16, 2009 @ 12:10 AM]

Dear Sister Lisa! I’m unable to understand the purpose of the following foot note, could you please explain me the first part of that footnote.

Verse: [36:83] Therefore, glory be to the One in whose hand is the sovereignty over all things, and to Him you will be returned.*


Foot Note: *36:83 It is noteworthy that the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the gematrical value of “Khalifa” (725), plus the sura number (36), plus the number of verses (83), produces a total that is a multiple of 19 (505+725+36+83=1349=19×71).

[Reply-1 from Lisa to the submitter through E-mail dated: Thu, Aug 20, 2009 at 9:53 AM]
Peace brother, Forgive me, I have been travelling. I just returned to Tucson. I hope that I have understood your question. It seems that you are asking about the gematrical value. If that is the issue, I have taken the liberty to quote from Dr. Khalifa’s Appendix One. Looking at his table you can see that the gematrical value of the letter Alef is 1, and that of Lam is 30, etc.:

Inshallah that clarifies the issue for you So if you look up the Arabic letters in “Rashad” the total of their gematrical values is 505 and the total for “Khalifa” is 725.

[Question-2 by the same submitter through E-mail to Lisa dated: Thu, Aug 20, 2009 at 1:50 AM]

No sister! My question was different, when the Verse is taking about GOD, how can the footnote explain some info about the Messenger? I thought that footnote was a mistake, please read that verse carefully and then the footnote, u can see that there is no relation /inter connection between the verse and the footnote!

[Reply-2 from Lisa to the same submitter through E-mail dated: [Sat, Aug 22, 2009 at 5:21 AM]

Salaam Alaikum, brother This is a question that only Dr. Khalifa himself would have been able to answer. Clearly there was a reason that he added the footnote. I could speculate, but that is all that it would be. I am sorry that I cannot give you any more help than that!

Allah’s authorized messengers would never inform People to Worship them:

Do Lisa and the idolatrous khalifates don’t know the following verses of Quran:

[3:79-80] It is not for a human that Allah should give him the Scripture and authority and prophet-hood and then he would say to the people, Be servants to me rather than Allah, but [instead, he would say], “Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied.” Nor could he order you to take the angels and prophets as lords. Would he order you to disbelief after you had been Muslims?

[21:29] And whoever of them should say, “Indeed, I am a god besides Him”- that one We would recompense with Hell. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers.”

[4:116] Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray.

When Khalifates are able to reject 2-verses from Allah [SWTA]’s Quran, why there are unable to remove a footnote from Khalifa’s translation? It is because they took him as an idol and that idol-messenger advocated them to substitute himself as a (fake) messenger by replacing the authorized messenger [Muhammad (p)] of Allah [SWTA], to substitute the criminal laws ordained by Allah [SWTA] with the lusted opinions of their idol-leader, to change the name of Allah [SWTA]’s only authorised religion, and to completely ignore the whole history of Allah [SWTA]’s religion but to replace it with all fake stories fabricated by their puppet-messenger Rashad Khalifa!    

Do the miracles increase the faith of the humans?

You well knew that the camel of Saleh, which was a great sign but it doesn’t help them to believe and walk righteous. Kindly see the verses below:

[17:59]…To the people of Thamud, We sent the she-camel as a visible miracle and they did injustice to it…”

[26:157] “they hamstrung her, and in the morning they were remorseful”

The same way the sign given to Noah i.e. the Ark doesn’t even help his own son to believe and walk righteous. Kindly see the verses below:

11:37 “And construct the ship under Our observation and Our inspiration…”      

54:13-15 “But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre. It floats under our eyes (and care): recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition?”                                   

29:15 “But We saved him and the companions of the Ark, and We made the (Ark) a Sign for all peoples!”

Similarly those who tried to burn Abraham [P] were not able to believe and to become righteous even after seeing one of the greatest miracles i.e. fire becoming coolness and safety for Abraham. Also that doesn’t even help his father to believe and walk righteous. Kindly see the verse below:

[21:69] “Allah said, “O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham.” 

Likewise the series of miracles that Allah [SWTA] has shown to the people of Pharaoh in favour of Moses and the children of Israel doesn’t help either the children of Israel or the people of Pharaoh! The children of Israel forget everything and disobeyed to the extent of worshipping the calf-statue, and the people of Pharaoh ignored everything and disobeyed to the extent of getting drowned in to the sea! Kindly see the verse below: 

[43:48] “of all the miracles which We showed to them the latter ones were greater than the former. We struck them with torment so that perhaps they would return to Us.”

To its extreme Quran clearly conveys that the miracles won’t increase the faith a bit! Kindly see the following verses which confirm that Allah [SWTA] has already decided to stop all miracles [Kindly read; 17:59] as they are incapable of bringing long-time changes in the status of human faith on Allah [SWTA]: 

[13-31] “Even if the Quran would make mountains move, cut the earth into pieces and make the dead able to speak, (the unbelievers still would not believe). All affairs are in the hands of Allah. Do the believers still hope that they will believe? Had Allah wanted He could have guided the whole of mankind to the right path. The unbelievers will always suffer afflictions that result from their deeds or the affliction which occur near their homes, until God’s promise of punishing them will be fulfilled. God does not disregard His promise.”

[6:109] And they swear by Allah their strongest oaths that if a miracle came to them, they would surely believe in it. Say, “The miracles are only with Allah.” And what will make you perceive that even if a miracle came, they would not believe.”                                                                                                            

[6:7] And even if We had sent down to you, a written scripture on a page and they touched it with their hands, the disbelievers would say, “This is not but obvious magic.”                                                                                                            

Some people seek after miracles and wonders because they want some confirmation to believe the words of Allah [SWTA]. However, there was a time when enough miracles have been performed by the messengers of Allah [SWTA] and the truth has been already proved, and now it is the time to exercise our faith.

Some people seek after signs and wonder because they do not believe the signs and wonders which have already been performed by the messengers of Allah [SWTA] in the past. Others seek after signs and wonders because they seek an occasion to excuse their unbelief.  Many people seek signs and wonders because they are curious thrill (lust) seekers; they want to see something sensational, but they have no real desire to know the truth of Allah [SWTA].

There are also people, who seek after signs and wonders because they hope to get something for themselves [kindly read the chapter of this book named ‘Rashad Khalifa: Witnesses and Lessons from the History’]. Better than seeking after a new miracle it is always greater taking Allah [SWTA] at His Words.

Simple faith is more pleasing to Allah [SWTA] than a reliance on a dazzling sensory experience. Let us view verses from Khalifa’s favourite book-Bible, where Jesus [P] named the miracle-seekers as evil and adulterous generation:

[Matthew 12:38, 39] “Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.” But he answered them, an evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.”

[John 20:29] “Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed”.

They were “adulterous” in the spiritual sense, having lost the true faith in Allah [SWTA] and they would be always ready to follow the man-made make-ups and human harvested humbugs like the one performed by Saamri in the past and the other one performed by Rashad Khalifa in the 20th century! 

Khalifates claim that the number-nineteen is a miracle from Allah [SWTA] and that protects the whole Quran! But careful study reveals that the number-19 is a trial for people who have disease in their souls.

Also keen observation discloses that the Verse about number-19 [Quran 74:30] is a Mutashabihat Verse! How do we confirm that the Verse about 19 is a Mutashabihat Verse? This is very clear to a believer who is well grounded in the knowledge of Qur’an. For example, a believer can notice such parallels from Quran as the following one:

In-order to view the parallel comparison and to understand that the number-19 is a trial for people who have disease in their souls and also to understand that the Verse about number-19 [Quran 74:30] is a Mutashabihat Verse, kindly open this link:

How do we confirm that the Verse about 19 [Quran 74:30] is a Mutashabihat Verse?   The response of people to this verse is a sign for believers: How the mentioning of this number in an intricate (Mutashabihat) verse can divert a people so much into deep studies with the number, to the point of declaring two verses in Holy Quran as void – how a disproportionate amount of time and effort is given into numerical calculations, rather than its message, just as warned in 3:7.

Observing them shows a believer Allah’s absolute power to lead and mislead people as well as how 3:7 comes to reality. 19 is a number for trial as mentioned in the verse, and this is the very significance of the number 19 in the Qur’an. It has been designed by Allah for this purpose. But as is stated in 3:7, the response of the believers is “We believe in it: it is all from our Lord”.

How are believers “increased in faith”?                                                                                      This is also very clear to a believer who is well grounded in the knowledge of Qur’an. For example, a believer can notice such parallels from Quran as the one given below, which aids us to view the parallel comparison and to understand, what kind of verses really helps to increase the faith of believers on the other hand that causes the hypocrites nothing but destruction. In-order to view this parallel comparison, kindly click the following link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2wEjWepdOKZUmhYVnQwcTExYXM/view?ths=true

Kindly see the verses below                                                                                                           [8:2]The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’an) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone).

[39-45] And when Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter shrink, and when those besides Him are mentioned, lo! they are joyful.

Most unfortunately when Rahsad Khalifa is mentioned they [KHALIFATES] are joyful, and when numerology calculations [number-nineteen based numerology] are presented they pretend that their faith is getting increased, and they trust in Rashad Khalifa’s hadiths 100%, but they proclaim ‘GOD ALONE, QURAN ALONE’, to deceive the humanity and themselves!

Once again they have taken their religious leader and scholar Rashad Khalifa as their lord as he has himself proclaimed in the footnote of the verse 36:83 in his Quran translation called ‘Final Testament’!

Now read the following verse the truth may be well exposed:                                          [9:31] “They (unconditionally) obeyed the rabbis and the monks and worshipped the Messiah, son of Mary, as they should have obeyed God. They were commanded to worship no one besides God who is the only God and who is too exalted to be considered equal to any idols.”           

Voluntary proofs from Allah [SWTA] confirm the origin of Quran!                              Though Allah [SWTA] and his true messengers dislikes people who depend on miracles, rely on proofs than the words of Allah [SWTA], keep seeking for new sign even-though it doesn’t help the previous generations to become believers and walk righteous.

Most Muslims are aware that Quran contains many Miracles as it is from Allah [SWTA] but his faith does not depend on that. In fact Allah never says that believe in me because I show these miracles, etc. Still Allah [SWTA] ‘the most generous above all’ promised us that he has decided to show the proofs not based on the demands of the humans but it would be in the ways that he decided already as explained in the following verse:

[41:53] We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and within themselves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Quran) is the truth. Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord witness over all things?”

Even-though Allah [SWTA] questioned us “Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord witness over all things?” in 41:53, but the response of Khalifates is; still we need our puppet messenger Rashad Khalifa to witness everything with his 19numerology calculations! Now let us view few of the proofs from Allah [SWTA] as elaborated in 41:53:

1) The people of lot and the city which was turned upside down                                             In relation to this subject, based on his archaeological and geological researches, the German researcher Werner Keller noted that the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were in fact located in the Siddim Valley which was the region at the furthers and lowest end of the Lake of Lot, and that there were once big and widely inhabited sites in those regions. The most interesting structural characteristic of the Lake of Lot is an ‘evidence’ showing how the disaster incidence recounted in the Qur’an took place.

But the (mighty) Blast overtook them before morning, And We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay. Behold! in this are Signs for those who by tokens do understand. And the (cities were) right on the high-road. (15: 73-76)

But the rest We destroyed utterly. We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)! : Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe. And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful. (26: 172175)

2) The Ark of Noah FOUND! WHERE QURAN STATES EXACTLY!!                                       Salih Bayraktutan, head of geology at Turkey’s Ataturk University, estimates the age of the ‘vessel’ at more than 100,000 years. “It is a man-made structure and for sure it is Noah’s Ark.” The site is directly below the mountain of Al Judi, named in the Koran as the Ark’s resting place.

54:13-15 “But We bore him on an (Ark) made of broad planks and caulked with palm-fibre. It floats under our eyes (and care): recompense to one who had been rejected (with scorn)! And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition?”

29:15 “But We saved him and the companions of the Ark, and We made the (Ark) a Sign for all peoples!”

3) The Body of Pharaoh Ramses’ II, has been found! [10:92] “We will save your body on this day so that you may become evidence (of Our existence) for the coming generations and surely majority of the people are heedless to our proofs.”

4) The Rock stricken by Moses [P] for water for his people found! [2:60] And (remember) when Musa (Moses) asked for water for his people, We said: Strike the stone with your stick. Then twelve springs gushed forth there from. Each (group of) people knew its own place for water. “Eat and drink of that which Allah has provided and do not act corruptly, making mischief on the earth.”

[2-74] “Then your hearts hardened after that, so that they were like rocks, rather worse in hardness. And surely there are some rocks from which streams burst forth; and there are some of them which split asunder so water flows from them; and there are some of them which fall down for the fear of Allah. And Allah is not heedless of what you do.

Quran and Modern Science                                                                                                             Allah SWT in the Quran teaches us about the fundamentals of Science, from the universe to the uterus, if we look closely the Quran is not only a guidance for all, but also a book that hints about the modern Science! Proven science, history or archaeology never contradicts with Quran; which also serves as a proof that it is from Allah[SWTA]!

Quran on embryology:                                                                                                                               When a woman is pregnant, the zygote (not quite a baby yet) clings to the uterus of the mother in order to take nourishment from the mother’s blood. The zygote is no larger than that of 2 thumbs; this formation, which has been discovered by modern embryology, was miraculously stated in the Qur’an 14 centuries ago with the word “alaq”, which means “a thing that clings to some place” and is used to describe leeches that cling to a body to suck blood.

[96:1-2] Recite in the name of your Lord who created. He created man from a clinging substance.

The zygote does exactly that, it leeches off the mother’s uterus and sucks blood to gain what it needs. Subhanallah, the Quran was revealed 14 centuries ago, how could a man during that era know what we know now through the modern embryology studies? Indeed Allah is lord of the worlds, the All knowing, the Almighty.

Quran on oceanography:                                                                                                                       The North Sea and the Baltic Sea come together yet they do not mix. 1400 years ago Allah [SWTA] sent down the above verse to Muhammad [P], and only very recently have oceanographers discovered this. The seas do not mix due to the physical force called “surface tension”.

“He has let loose the two seas, converging together, with a barrier between them they do not break through.” (The Qur’an, 55:19-20)  

It is caused by the difference in the density of their waters’ and surface tension prevents them from mingling with one another, just as if a thin wall were between them. The interesting side to this is that during a period when people had no knowledge of physics, surface tension, or oceanography; this was revealed in the Qur’an. Alhamdullilah!
Quran on Formation of Clouds and Rain                                                                                  

 Allah [SWTA] says in Quran: “And it is He Who sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings, going before His Mercy (rain). Till when they have carried a heavy-laden cloud, We drive it to a land that is dead, then We cause water (rain) to descend thereon. Then We produce every kind of fruit therewith. Similarly, We shall raise up the dead, so that you may remember or take heed. [7:57]

“And We send the winds fertilizing (to fill heavily the clouds with water), then cause the water (rain) to descend from the sky, and We give it to you to drink, and it is not you who are the owners of its stores (i.e. to give water to whom you like or to withhold it from whom you like) [15:22]

Modern science has affirmed the scientific points mentioned in this verse of the Quran. The winds carry water particles which are rich in salt up into the atmosphere; these particles which are called ‘aerosols’ function as water traps and form cloud drops by collecting around the water vapour themselves.

The clouds are formed from water vapour that condenses around the salt crystals or dust particles in the air. Because the water droplets in these clouds are very small (with a diameter between 0.01 and 0.02 mm), the clouds are suspended in the air, and spread across the sky. Thus, the sky is covered in clouds. The water particles that surround salt crystals and dust particles thicken and form raindrops, so drops that become heavier than the air leave the clouds and start to fall to the ground as rain. Allah says:

“See you not that Allah drives the clouds gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap of layers, and you see the rain comes forth from between them; and He sends down from the sky hail (like) mountains, (or there are in the heaven mountains of hail from where He sends down hail), and strikes therewith whom He wills, and averts it from whom He wills. The vivid flash of its (clouds) lightening nearly blinds the sight.” [24:43]

Rain clouds are formed and shaped according to definite systems and stages. The formation stages of cumulonimbus -a type of rain cloud- are:

(A) 1st Stage (b) 2nd Stage (c) 3rd Stage                                                                                         1st stage: Being driven along: Clouds are carried along, that is, they are driven along, by the wind

2nd stage: Joining: Then, small clouds (cumulus clouds) driven along by the wind join together, forming a larger cloud.

3rd stage: Stacking: When the small clouds join together, updrafts within the larger cloud increase. The updrafts near the centre of the cloud are stronger than those near the edges. These updrafts cause the cloud body to grow vertically, so the cloud is stacked up. This vertical growth causes the cloud body to stretch into cooler regions of the atmosphere, where drops of water and hail formulate and begin to grow larger and larger. When these drops of water and hail become too heavy for the updrafts to support them, they begin to fall from the cloud as rain, hail, etc.
   
A cloud becomes electrified as hail falls through a region in the cloud of super-cooled droplets and ice crystals. As liquid droplets collide with a hailstone, they freeze on contact and release latent heat. This keeps the surface of the hailstone warmer than that of the surrounding ice crystals.

Model for forked lighting:                                                                                                                  (A) The negative charge concentrated at the bottom of the cloud becomes large enough to overcome the air’s resistance and develops a «leader» pointing towards the ground.

(B) An upward flow of positive charges from the ground concentrates elevated points

(C) The downward flow of negative charges meets the upward flow of positive charges and a strong electric current the upward flow of positive charges and a strong electric current known as return stroke carries the positive charges into the cloud.

When the hailstone comes in contact with an ice crystal, an important phenomenon occurs: electrons flow from the colder object toward the warmer object. Hence, the hailstone becomes negatively charged. The same effect occurs when super-cooled droplets come in contact with a hailstone and tiny splinters of positively charged ice break off. These lighter positively charged particles are then carried to the upper part of the cloud by updrafts.

The hail, falls towards the bottom of the cloud, thus the lower part of the cloud becomes negatively charged. These negative charges are then discharged as lightning. We conclude from this that hail is the major factor in producing lightning. Quran speaks about formation of clouds and the process of raining before 1400 years where there were no systematic study of Meteorology and Climatology existed! 

Allah [SWTA] says in Quran:                                                                                                                   “And thunder glorifies and praises Him, and so do the angels because of His Awe. He sends the thunderbolts, and therewith He strikes whom He wills, yet they (disbelievers) dispute about Allah. And He is Mighty in strength and Severe in punishment. [13:13]

There are many more like the above where Allah [SWTA] talks of modern Science however for one whose mind is revering the Al-Mighty Creator for them even these simple samples matters a lot; even-though his faith is not based on these factors.

There may be thousands of websites and millions of blogs available online explaining the scientific and historical miracles of the Quran when you check with Google search engine! Kindly follow the links given below which provides you plenty of articles about the scientific and historic miracles of the Quran: http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/scientific_index.html     http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/historical_index.html

Finally I register here a strong suggestion and that is even-though a lot of mathematical perspectives are available in the Quran but many try to use it for their personal agenda and try to deviate and divert the true believers from the essence of the Quran-its meanings and commands, therefore I’m bringing to your kind notice about two blogs, which would break the fakes in the form of numerology cakes even-though they call it as miraculous bakes:

1)    http://alquranonlysubmission.blogspot.in/2015/12/the-qurans-numerical-miracle-by-dr.html

2)    http://alquranalonesubmission.blogspot.in/2016/01/edip-yuksel-gently-exposed.html     

Despite the clarity of the signs, many people do not use their reason, vision and hearing to reflect on these signs in order to arrive at the truth. The truth is apparent but many people stubbornly deny it, either out of envy or out of fear for their worldly status, or for other reasons. Thus as Allah [SWTA] describes them they are the heedless ones:

[7:179] “We have destined many men and jinn for hell. They have hearts but do not understand, and they have eyes but do not see and they have ears but do not hear. They are worse than lost cattle. These are the heedless ones.”

***Kindly move further to view Chapter-18-The Conclusion***


Chapter-18-The Conclusion

MIND SETS, PROOFS AND FAITH

Verses (51:20, 21) “And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith] and in yourselves. Then will you not see?”                       

Verse (12:105) “And how many a sign within the heavens and earth do they pass over while they, there from, are turning away.”

Verse (41:53) we will show them our proofs in the horizon and within themselves, until they realize that this is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?

Unfortunately for Khalifa’s followers they don’t need Allah’s witness any more but they want number ‘19’ to be the witness over all things. They are not willing to appreciate any kind of signs or proofs from Allah if it doesn’t befit their ‘19’ calculations!

If you try to show them a sign of Allah from anywhere in the universe, first they would start calculating the numbers related to the specific information and try to find out, is there any way to derive ‘19’ out of it, if not, then nobody in their group would be interested to appreciate whatever the miracles that Allah [SWTA] has shown in the universe!

Even they started showing partiality between the Quran verses, if you initiate any argument or discussions quoting any verse from the Quran, first they would start calculating to derive ‘19’ in some or the other way!

If they are successful in doing that then the verse becomes popular among them or otherwise the verse would not be taken more serious and one-more thing if they think that particular verse can be misinterpreted by them to deceive the mankind then for sure they would create a new type of calculations to derive ‘19” to support their lust and highlight that verse to misguide people!

Khalifa and his followers had removed two verses from their Quran translation, they have added an additional letter   in the beginning of 68:01 to make-up and uphold their ‘19’ calculations! They become brave against Allah [SWTA] to tell this one is missing and we add it and that one is added so we are deleting it, against all Allah [SWTA]’s promises for protection of Quran and try to teach something that they allegedly assume, which Allah [SWTA] may not be knowing! Kindly read the following verse to identify the attitude of Khalifates:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     “[49-16] Say: “Will you inform Allah about your religion? While Allah knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and Allah is All-Aware of everything.”

Also the list of Quran verses, where Khalifa forgot, missed-out or ignored to translate, till now their translations are released with such in-completion, and the list of those missed-out phrases are hidden from their ordinary followers but only their few first level leaders keep that list for their private and secret discussions.    

The reason why they left those in-completion as final edition is because they think except Khalifa there is none who can translate the Quran, in other words they have started worshiping Khalifa as their idol!

The following verse confirms that Khalifa’s followers disbelieved in Allah’s promise of protection for Quran but they believed in their religious leader or scholar-Khalifa (that was how he has portrayed himself until late 1989 -until he claimed the alleged messenger-ship):

[9:31] “They (unconditionally) obeyed the rabbis and the monks and worshipped the Messiah, son of Mary, as they should have obeyed God. They were commanded to worship no one besides God who is the only God and who is too exalted to be considered equal to any idols.”       

Start from the publication of book “Miracle of the Quran: Significance of the Mysterious Alphabets, Islamic Productions, St. Louis, Missouri, in 1973, until his book titled QURAN: THE FINAL SCRIPTURE (ISBN 0-934894-19-1) published in 1981, he was challenging the whole world continuously with a term “irrefutable” claiming that Quran is completely and mathematically protected from a single change,!

Also recall during 1981 in his book QURAN: THE FINAL SCRIPTURE, verses 9:128-129 were included and he also wrote a footnote for 9:128, justifying the usage of term “Raheem” for the prophet, still he was able to make up his 19 calculations!

Khalifa’S FIRST PUBLICATION of Quran Translation in 1981: 

Title: QURAN: THE FINAL SCRIPTURE 

ISBN 0-934894-19-1 Library of Congress Card No. 81-80923.  Please examine the texts from page 137. In this FIRST publication the verses 9: 128/129 of the Quran are NOT DELETED. Please note the word “God” (Allah) appears in verse129. 

On page 472 of his FIRST Quran translation, the total count of the words “Allah” in the Qur’an is mentioned as 2698 (19×42=2698). In his commentary below Khalifa makes comments on verse 128, but Later-on Khalifa deletes this verse in his next edition.

Here we have an honest question for Khalifates and that is; when Khalifa went to heaven and met all the prophets of Allah during December 21, 1971 [Kindly see his translation-Appendix-2], was he not informed by Allah [SWTA] about the last two verses of surah-9, if yes then why did he added the last two verses of Surah-9 into his translation published in 1981, almost after a decade of his heavenly visit?! Kindly note that Allah [SWTA} never forgets anything: 

[20-52] [Moses] said: “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord, in a Record. My Lord is neither unaware nor He forgets.”

[19-64]And we descend not but by the command of thy Lord. To Him belongs what is before us and what is behind us and what is between these, and thy Lord is never forgetful.

Khalifa told his followers that Quran is completely protected for a dozen years continuously (i.e. from 1973-1985) and challenged the whole world with lot of books, articles, presentations and by using a phrase called “Irrefutable physical evidence” to challenge the whole world that Quran is unaltered and unchanged!”

All of a sudden one nice day in 1985 when Khalifa announced that Quran has been corrupted, all of his ardent followers were readily denounced their faith on Allah by pronouncing their faith on Khalifa.

Kindly see what Allah [SWTA] promises about the protection of Quran: 

[15:9] “Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an {Zikr} and indeed, We will be its guardian.”                                                                                                                                       [Kindly note that Allah doesn’t say 19-will be its guardian but Allah [SWTA] says He will be its guardian]

[75:16-17] “Move not your tongue with it, to hasten with recitation of the Qur’an. Indeed, upon Us is its collection and its recitation.”                                         [Kindly note what Khalifa says; while Quran was collected 2-verses were inserted into it]

[18:27] And recite what has been revealed to you of the book of your Lord. None can change His Words, and none will you find as a refuge other than Him.             [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been altered by prophet’s friends]

[2:2-3] “This is the Book about which there is no doubt, guidance for those conscious of Allah, Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them.”                                                                       [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that 9:128-129, were always suspected i.e. they were doubtful]

[6:34] “And certainly were messengers denied before you, but they were patient over [the effects of] denial, and they were harmed until Our victory came to them. And none can alter the words of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the messengers.”                       [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been altered by prophet’s friends]

[6:115] “And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.”                                         [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been altered by prophet’s friends]

[10:37] “And this Qur’an is not such as could ever be produced by other than Allah, but it is a confirmation of, which was before it, and a full explanation of the book-wherein there is no doubt – from the Lord of the Universe”.                                                           [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that 9:128-129, were always suspect]

[12:111] “In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It {Quran} is not a narrative which could be forged, but a confirmation of what is before it, and a distinct explanation of all things, and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe.”                                                                                                                                                 [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that Quran has been forged by prophet’s friends]

[41-42] “No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all Praise.”                                                                                     [Kindly note that Khalifa claimed that in the past it has been corrupted by prophet’s friends and in the future it has been restored as correct by Khalifa]

When Khalifa proclaimed that the Quran have been corrupted, people took two standard; Khalifa’s ardent followers believed in him but the true believers put their trust in Allah and his words, unfortunately none of the Khalifa’s ardent followers referred the Quran for what it says about difference of opinions as mentioned in the verse below!:

[16: 64] “And We have not revealed to you the Book, [O Muhammad], except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.”

Dr. Rashad Khalifa’s stated his aim from the time he presented the Miraculous 19 Theory in the early 1970s until 1985 was to physically prove two things:                                               1.That the Qur’an is God’s final message to the world, and                                                       2.That the Qur’an was perfectly protected from the slightest distortion, addition or loss.

However during 1985 when he cancelled his second aim by claiming that the last two verses of Chapter-9 were fabricated, which was proved by 19-calculations, Khalifa’s ardent followers still followed him with rejoice, as how samiri and golden calf was followed by the people of Moses [P], the same way khalifates followed Khalifa and number-19 with great rejoice, thinking that they have been given something new by Khalifa, which Muhammad [P] missed-out to gave them {Refer: This is your Lord and the Lord of Moses whom he (Moses) forgot to mention! [20:88], the same way Khalifa Proclaimed “19” as the miracle of Quran, which was given to him and to Muhammad [P]!

How do we know that the Verse about 19 is a Mutashabihat Verse?                                     

How are believers “increased in faith”?                                                                                          

This is clear to a believer who is well grounded in the Qur’an. The response from different people to the verse about-19 is a sign for the believers to understand how the mentioning of number-19 in an intricate (MUTASHABIHAT) verse, which can divert people so much deep into studies with a number, to the point of declaring two verses are void, how much a disproportionate amount of time and effort is given into numerical calculations, rather than its message, just as warned in 3:7.

Observing the responses from two different groups mentioned in 3:7 also shows a believer, the ability of Allah [SWTA]’s to lead and mislead people with a single citation [kindly also see verse-2:26], as well as how it comes to reality.

19 is a number of trials as mentioned in the verse, and this is the very significance of the number 19 in the Qur’an. It has been designed by Allah for this purpose. But as it is stated in 3:7, the response of the believers is “We believe in it: it is all from our Lord”. Kindly see the similar verses listed below:

Verse (34:6) “And those who have been given knowledge see that what is revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, and it guides to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy.”

Verse (29:49) “Rather, the Qur’an is distinct verses [preserved] within the breasts of those who have been given knowledge. And none reject Our verses except the wrongdoers.”

Verse (3:7-8) “…But those firm in knowledge say, “We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord.” And no one will be reminded except those of understanding. They say: “Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower.”

Verses 22:53, 54 are crucial in this context which says:                                                

“[That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension. And so those who were given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and [therefore] believe in it, and their hearts humbly submit to it. And indeed is Allah the Guide of those who have believed to a straight path.” [22:53, 54]

Above verses confirms that Allah has put up the devils scheme as a test for the doubtful and that those who are given knowledge will recognize the truth from their Lord and believe it, accept it and follow as the whole Quran as it came from Allah and will never put forward so many manipulations to remove, alter or omit verses from Quran.

Also see, when do the faith of true believers is exposed or increased as per Quran; it is not because of mere numerology that it get exposed or increased but it is because of the message filled in Allah [SWTA]’s verses:  

(28:52-54) “Those to whom We gave the Scripture before it, – they believe in this. And when it is recited to them, they say: ‘We believe in it. Verily, it is the truth from our Lord. Indeed even before this we were Muslims. These will be given their reward twice over, because they are patient, and repel evil with good, and spend out of what We have provided them.”

[8:2]The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’an) are recited unto them, they increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone).

[5:83]And when they listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognized. They say: “Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses.”

Now once again if we read the same verse 9:31 we can see it reconfirms that Khalifa’s followers disbelieved in Allah’s promise of protecting the Quran but they believed in their religious leader or scholar Khalifa (that was how he has portrayed himself until late 1989 -until he claimed the alleged messenger-ship):

[9:31] “They (unconditionally) obeyed the rabbis and the monks and worshiped the Messiah, son of Mary, as they should have obeyed God. They were commanded to worship no one besides God who is the only God and who is too exalted to be considered equal to any idols.”   

Below are cited a few verses in Quran, that if judged by the common code-19 will call for adverse criticism on Rashad Khalifa’s claims: 

1)41:40 “Surely, those who distort our revelations are not hidden from us. Is one who gets thrown into Hell better, or one who comes secure on the day of Resurrection? Do whatever you wish; He is seer of everything you do.”                                                  

Gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus Surah No.41, plus Verse No.40= 1311=19*69.

2)2:79 “Therefore, woe to those who distort the scripture with their own hands, then say, ‘this is what God has revealed’, seeking a cheap material gain. Woe to them for such distortion and woe to them for their illicit gain.”                                  

Gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus Surah No.2, plus Verse No.79= 1311=19*69.

3) [2:98] “Whoever is an enemy to ALLAH, and HIS angels, and HIS Messengers, and Gabriel, and Michael, then surely, ALLAH is an enemy to such disbelievers.”

By adding the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus the number of the Surah (2), plus the number of the verse (98), we get 505+725+2+ 98 =1330, which is a divisible of number nineteen[19×70]!

4) [36:64] “Burn therein this day for that ye disbelieved”

By adding the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus the number of the Surah (36), plus the number of the verse (64), we get 505+725+36+ 64 =1330, which is a divisible of number nineteen[19×70]!

5) [47:34] “Verily, those who disbelieve, and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah (i.e. Islam); then die while they are disbelievers, Allah will not forgive them.”   

By adding the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus the number of the Surah (47), plus the number of the verse (34), we get 505+725+47+ 34 =1311, which is a divisible of number nineteen[19×69]!

6)7:176 “Had we willed, we could have elevated him (refer 7:175) therewith, but he insisted on sticking to the earth and pursued his own opinions. Thus he is like the dog; whether you pet him or scold him, he pants. Such is the example of those who reject our proofs. Narrate these narrations that they may reflect.”

By adding the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus the number of the Surah (7), plus the number of the verse (176), we get 505+725+176= 1406, which is also divisible by 19 [19*74].

The above six verses do specifically refer to Rashad Khalifa, when judged by his own standards? Any number of such verses identifying with Rashad kalifa but bearing witness against him can be cited in Quran.   

Ever so many proofs in the heaven, earth and in ourselves (not the common code-19) will be made clear to and recognized by those who are given knowledge by Allah.

Allah will change our mindsets according to our deeds. He will inspire the angels to support the believers and direct them (the angels) to strike above the neck of the unbelievers, striking their finger tips off them (8:12).

Compare the mindsets of believers and non-believers in (48:26). Allah will send down tranquility into the hearts of believers to augment faith upon their faith (48:4) .This is the consequence of our own works and Allah is never unjust towards us (3:182).

See the mindsets of Pharaoh and the magicians when the staff thrown by Moses, which swallowed what the magicians fabricated. While Pharaoh thought that Moses was the teacher who taught them magic (26:49); the magicians believed in the Lord of Moses and Aaron (26:48) ignoring the threat of being crucified (26:49).

Ever so many proofs in the heavens, Horizon, earth and in oneself cannot make one a believer unless he earns and deserves it by leading a compassionate and righteous life holding fast to truth and justice. See the nine miracles to Pharaoh’s people-one bigger than that before it (43:48) and pay attention towards the miracles cited in 13:31:

[13-31] “Even if the Quran would make mountains move, cut the earth into pieces and make the dead able to speak, (the unbelievers still would not believe). All affairs are in the hands of God. Do the believers still hope that they will believe? Had God wanted he could have guided the whole of mankind to the right path. The unbelievers will always suffer afflictions that result from their deeds or the affliction which occur near their homes, until God’s promise of punishing them will be fulfilled. God does not disregard His promise.”

Now it is up to the followers of R.K to still hold fast to Rashad Khalifa’s Explanations and no one has any right to question his or her faith, other than Almighty Allah.

[2:256] There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

[88:21-24] So remind, you are only a reminder. You are not over them a controller. However, he who turns away and disbelieves; then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment.

May Allah protect us from following the footsteps of Satan throwing away the proofs we have received from Allah (7:175). May Allah elevate us with His proof without making us cling to earth and its worldly glitter (7:176) and save us from following our vain desires?

May Allah also shower his blessings on us (33:43), arouse us to do actions that may please Him (46:15) and lead us into ever increasing spiritual enlightenment to walk among men with God given light (6:122).May Allah forgive us our sins and remove the evil in us (3:193), improve the state of our soul (47:2) and finally unite us in His Paradise among the elite.

***Kindly move further to view Chapter-19-Yamama and Our Amal-Nama***

Chapter-19

Dedication

Yamama and Our Amal-Nama

Does anybody know how many Prophet’s companions [R] were approximately killed in all the major wars that were fought during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad [P]?

Kindly see the list of all major wars and the approximate number of Prophet’s companions [R] who were killed inclusive of all the major wars that were fought during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad [P]:

Badr 14
Uhud 70
Khaybar 17
Mu’tah 12
Hunayn 5
Total: 118

But when a person called Musaylimah claimed himself as the Apostle / Ambassador / Prophet from Allah [SWTA] as every companions of the Prophet knew well that Muhammad [P] is the last Messenger and Prophet, Abu Bakkar [R] has ordered for a war against Musaylimah, and that war was called Yamama!

Does anybody know how many Prophet’s companions were approximately killed in the battle of Yamama? It was 1200 companions among which more than 1/3 i.e. more than 400 were hafiz-e-Quran and they were Prophet’s closest associates [R]!

Yamama War
Total number of Prophet’s companions, who were Killed 1200
Total number of Hafiz-e-Quran who were Killed 400-450

Have you noticed the number of Muslims who were killed in Yamama was more than ten times when comparing it with all the major wars fought during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad [P]!

This battle played a major role in motivating Abu Bakkar [R] to complete the compilation of the Qur’an. Hence 400 hafizes were killed at Yamama upon the insistence of his future successor Umar [R], Abu Bakkar [R] has ordered the collection of the pieces of the Qur’an into one copy.

The battle of Badr was almost similar to Yamama in one way but it was contrast to it in another way! Let me explain the contrast first; In Badr Prophet [P] was alive but during Yamama Prophet [P] was not alive.

Now let us see in which way Badr was almost similar to Yamama?
That was during Badr Prophet [P] was imploring to Allah [SWTA] saying that if we get defeated then there won’t be a single person to worship you alone in the whole earth! The very similar situation rose after the claim of Musaylimah as an Apostle and when thousands believed in him and followed him blindly!

What does this history tell us? What is the respect we have for that 400-Hafizes who get killed in Yamama, which by Allah’s plan paved the way for the collection of the Quran, which we read, and enjoying every-day?

All we need to do is after Muhammad [P] if anyone claims that he is a messenger or a prophet, we need to identify and witness how evil he is with all the feasible and possible proofs and that can be the only tribute that we can do for the 1200 Sahabis’ who get killed in Yamama!

Dear Brothers and Sisters, I have written a small book called “Critical Evaluation of Rashad Khalifa with Quran-Alone”; this small book is the result of years of data gathered interacting with people for and against Rashad Khalifa in internet forums and in real life, including my personal experience and research.

Many have contributed to this book, directly and indirectly, knowingly and unknowingly. I request you very much; kindly help me for this e-book to reach all your Muslim contacts for two reasons:

1) In-order to warn the humanity to be aware of the tricky works of Rashad Khalifa [Who claimed himself as a Messenger of Allah [SWTA].

2) In-order to ensure that our response to the deviant group-Khalifates [who have taken Rashad Khalifa as their idol] is comprehensive, clear, and precise, Insha Allah.

In the battle of Uhad, Sahabis’ formed a protection wall for the Prophet using their bodies as human bricks, and in Yamama they did the same and this time it is for protecting Islam – The only religion accepted by Allah [SWTA]!

All I request you is to form the word bricks in ‘online’ especially in all ‘social medias’ ‘politely against’ whoever claim for messenger-ship of someone even without a single verse as their proof! May Allah [SWTA] bless everyone who help his religion, make their Amal-Nama as good, and repay them with Jannah!

I’m dedicating my book for the humble, honest and hard works of those 1200 Yamama Martyrdoms [R].

Now my job ends here but those who read this e-book; their job may get start from here! Yes now its your property and responsibility to convey it to the humanity because Allah [SWTA] says in Quran:

[3:110]”You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. If only the People of the Scripture had believed, it would have been better for them. Among them are believers, but most of them are defiantly disobedient.”

[103:1-3] By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.

 

Finally I register here a strong suggestion and that is even-though a lot of mathematical perspectives are available in the Quran but many try to use it for their personal agenda and try to deviate and divert the true believers from the essence of the Quran-its meanings and commands.

Therefore I’m bringing to your kind notice about two blogs listed below, which would break the fakes in the form of numerology cakes even-though they call it as miraculous bakes:

  2. “Rashad Khalifa” “Rashad Khalifa” “Rashad Khalifa”

    Since the publication of my refutation of “Rashad Khalifa’s 19 theory in 1987, some new developments have taken place with regard to his personal claims. However, the arguments for his “miraculous” number theory have not changed. Consequently, as Professor Yvonne Haddad put it, “The fact remains that Philips’s work is generally accepted among Sunni Muslims as the most exhaustive rebuttal of “Rashad Khalifa”[1]

    After three reprints of my refutation, The Qur’an’s Numerical Miracle: Hoax and Heresy, I allowed it to go out of print in the early 1990s due to the steadily decreasing impact of the cults’ ideas. However, with the arrival of the Internet in the past decade and its subsequent spread, “Rashad Khalifa’s ideas have found a new channel by which to spread its falsehood in a number of unsuspecting communities around the world, from India to Nigeria, and Australia to Austria.

    Thus, every year, there are some people around the world, unaware of my thorough refutation, who become ensnarled by his claims. These claims are vigorously propagated by his cult which operates under the title of the United Submitters International.

    From an historical perspective, the most significant development in “Rashad Khalifa’s heretical movement since my book’s publication was his assassination in his temple in Tucson,Arizona on January 31, 1990. When the temple secretary arrived to meet him for morning prayers, she discovered his body in the kitchen, bloody and lying on top of a handgun he carried for his personal protection.[2]

    It is worth noting that following a series of death-threats “Rashad Khalifa” had claimed in one of the editions of the cult’s official newsletter, Muslim Perspective, in the late 1980s that since he was a messenger of Allah he would never be assassinated but would die a natural death.

    Due to many recent requests from Malaysia to Nigeria for copies of my refutation mentioned on my website, http://www.bilalphilips.com, I decided to republish it with the this update and a few minor adjustments and additions. The following is a brief history of the false-prophet/messenger, “Rashad Khalifa”.

  4. Our first question: While Khalifates’ are claiming that the history of prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran (P) are not protected but corrupted, from where did they get a purified history and scripture of Abraham who lived several thousand years before Prophet Muhammad (P), in-order to refer and follow the religious rituals followed by Abraham?

    Our second question: If you claim that the religious rituals followed by Abraham are exactly the same as what prophet Muhammad has followed and they are well established from Abraham till today then how come they are not found practiced anywhere else except among the followers of Muhammad (P) (i.e not among Christians or Jews)!

    Our Argument-1: As per verse ‘22:67’ which we have seen above confirms that religious rituals differs from one messenger to another, therefore even-though prophet Abraham might have followed the religious duties which we are following today it doesn’t mean the rituals are exactly the same!

    Our Argument-2: If we consider that Abraham (P) might have followed exactly the same rituals which we are observing today, then we can be sure that they were corrupted after Abraham (P) and therefore it has been given back to the believers by Allah [SWTA] through Prophet Muhammad [P].

  6. Globally Muslims use the same term qatta’na for performing Circumcision for their male children! Let see what the definition for qatta’na or Circumcision:

    “Circumcision is the surgical “removal” of the foreskin, the tissue covering the head (glans) of the penis. It is an ancient practice that has its origin in religious rites. Today, many parents have their sons circumcised for religious or other reasons.”

    Therefore qatta’na means removal and not marking. Verse 12:31 also means cut but it explains a situation of emotional action and its outcome, where women who saw Prophet Yusuf’s beauty and lost their consciousness for a moment and cut their hands whereas as per verse 5:38 we have to cut the hands of thieves with our full consciousness remembering Allah and the judgement day as it is a command from Allah who is All-mighty, All-wise.

    “Rashad Khalifa” Says: “The practice of cutting off the thief’s hand is a satanic practice!” in-order to support his argument Khalifa has provided the following mathematical proofs for marking the hands of thieves, instead of cutting it!

    “Rashad Khalifa’s proof: He want his innocent followers to calculate the Surah and verse numbers of 5:38 and 12:31 as both are 43 he submit a new concept that the hands of the thieves has to be marked instead of cutting it!? He further said as in 12:31 women admired Joseph and cut their hands therefore the same way thieves’ hands have to be treated! He also added one more mathematical proof and that was “nineteen verses” after 12:31 the same word gets repeated in 12:50 and that is the proof!

    How come a woman who continuously tried to force a male (Prophet Yusuf) for sexual intercourse, and wants to prove other women that she was actually not wrong and run a show and the arrangements made by her is an alternate for the clear and plain commandment given in 5:38. Recall Rashad translation for 5:38, which he has translated as “to serve as an example from GOD. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise” but Khalifa wants us to follow the example set by women who were “most vice” and schemed against Prophet Yusuf [12:51, 52] a dirty scheme.

    Is that the law, which “Rashad Khalifa’s followers wish to introduce is; to give the thieves a knife in their hands and to call beautiful female models (vice-versa) for a catwalk and to let the thieves cut their own hands!?

    Moreover “Rashad Khalifa” proclaims that the practice of cutting hands is a satanic practice! A person who has a real practice of reading Quran with meaning would immediately recognize who is Khalifa when he hears the words “that the practice of cutting hands is a satanic practise!” because Allah [SWTA] says in Quran that cutting of hands as a Quranic law as per ‘Surah-5 verse-33’:

    [5:33] “The only reward of those, who wage war against ALLAH and HIS Messenger and strive to create disorder in the land, is that they be slain or crucified or their hands and feet be cut off on account of their enmity, or they be expelled from the land. That shall be a disgrace for them in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a great punishment.”

    Here we are wondering about one-thing and that is how come “Rashad Khalifa” was unaware of plastic surgery, which was very popular in USA during his time! How much easy it is to hide a mark using plastic surgery! In that case how could marking the hand serve as an exemplary punishment or could serve as a way of example from Allah?! The following verse may well identify the faith and belief of Khalifa:

    “…And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the disbelievers.” (5:44)

  7. Conclusion about criminal justice system: Khalifa claimed that he has created a new Quranic justice system but proved to follow his own opinion in several ways when it came to interpret Quranic laws, for instance the punishment for theft, and did not have the courage to accept God’s law as it is (5:38).

    Verse 45:23 clarifies the mindset of “Rashad Khalifa” and like minded people as the one who takes his own desires as his god:

    [45:23] “Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah? Then will you not be reminded?”

    Also Verse 6:112 clarifies that prophet’s enemies inspires among themselves with decorative speech in delusion and we have to ignore them and whatever they invent i.e. Rashad Khalifa’s hadiths recorded in audios, videos, magazines, footnotes, appendices, online, etc:

    [6:112] “And thus We have made for every prophet an enemy – devils from mankind and jinn, inspiring to one another decorative speech in delusion. But if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so leave them and that which they invent.”

    The following verse confirms that either “Rashad Khalifa” has received funds from Allah’s enemies or because of threatening from them, “Rashad Khalifa” has changed the laws of Allah [SWTA] revealed in Quran:

    [5:44] “Indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which was guidance and light. The prophets who submitted [to Allah ] judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah , and they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers.”

    The following verses may well identify the faith and belief of Khalifa and Khalifates:

    …And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the wrongdoers. [5:45]

    …And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient. [5:47]

    “Do they then seek the judgment of (the days of) ignorance? And who is better in Judgement than Allah for a people who have firm Faith.”[5: 50]
