THE CLARIFIED SPEECH REGARDING THE KUFR OF UNIFYING ALL THE RELIGIONS

Preamble

It is most assuredly the case that Islam is the only true way. The preaching of the salvation is exclusive. By exclusive, it is meant that it is impossible for one to find salvation outside of the revealed way that Allah has given, this being Islam.

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted fom him. And in the Hereafter, he will be one of the losers.[1]

No apologies are made by the writer or all of those before him who affirmed this very thing. This faith is complete and one, truth is complete and one and what has been passed down over the millennia is complete and one.

This day I have completed your religion and perfected My Favour upon you and I am pleased for Islam to be your religion. [2]

We have been commanded to preach this faith. Allah has told us to do this as an obligation alone or in groups.

Say, ‘I preach to you one thing: that you stand up for the sake of Allah in pairs or singly.’ [3]

He has also revealed,

And speak out and proclaim the favour of your Lord.[4]

We would not be commanded to preach this faith and to stand up for it if it was not worth fighting for at all. Indeed further to this, there would be no virtue in preaching something that was already just as valid as the other “truths” that were extant. The fact that Islam has been revealed as the only truth dawns on the reader instantly by reading through the Qur’an and the Sunnah.

The Spectre of Universalism

In this age of continued universalism and falsehood, Muslims are now able to see that there are some deceivers amongst them, wearing the very mantle of righteousness and the sacred clothes of the theologians and judges. Those who lie in wait to deceive are teaching universalism. The universalistic movement utilised by these friends of Gnosticism and Deism has a three prong approach:

Pure Universalism: This is to adopt an attitude that all religions inherently are truthful, believe in and worship the same god and ultimately lead to Paradise.

 

Interfaith Universalism: Muslims, Jews and Christians are members of the “Abrahamic faiths” and the Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him, is their father and the source of all their faiths. It is usually claimed that the Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him, is just as much a Muslim as he is a Jew or a Christian. He is the common ancestor of the great monotheistic traditions.

 

Cultic universalism: As long as you state that you are Muslim, it is so.

Advocates of this doctrine leading to eternal judgement usually state that they desire to give Muslims, Christians and Jews opportunities to learn more “the neighbour next door” and to “share their faiths.”[5]

Anyone present at these gatherings listening carefully will be struck by the fact that the Muslim spokesmen in these meetings will speak on Islam for hours without quoting any verses and without sharing salvation.

Rather, the idea being put in the mind of the observer in the audience is that the three aforementioned religions issue from the same source and that all three adherents believe in, worship and are discussing the same god.

At the urging of the organisers of such gatherings, Muslims are made to promise not to proselytise, while cultists, unbelievers and assorted filth of the earth are not held to such guidelines. The end result is to bring the individual Muslim closer to becoming another Ibn al-Ahmar.[6]

Is There Any Basis for Universalism?

Upon detecting the slightest bit of resistance from the common Muslim to this idolatrous farce, the Muslim spokesman will moisten his forked tongue with the Words of the Creator of all to stupefy the mind of the believer. Allah has revealed,

Indeed, those who believe and those who are Jews, those who are Christians, those who are Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and does righteous deeds shall have their reward with their Lord. Neither shall there be any fear for them, nor will they grieve. [7]

Allah has also told us,

Indeed those who believe, those who are Sabians and those who are Christians, whoever believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteous deeds, neither shall there be any fear for them, nor shall they grieve.[8]

A Response to the Evidences

The Imams Al-Husain al-Baghawi, Ibn `Atiyyah al-Andalusi, Al-`Izz ibn `Abdus-Salam and Al-Mawardi, Ibn Jarir at-Tabari and Ibn al-Jawzi,[9] may Allah be pleased with all of them, state that these ayat have the following meanings:

a.      Those people mentioned in the beginning part of the ayah are those who truly believe as well as those hypocrites who were claiming belief and it has not been sealed in their heart.

b.     The Jews, Christians and other religions mentioned are those who have believed if one reads the ayah in its’ context and understands the grammar.

c.      The passages also refer to those who were believers before the advent of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, and either came to know him or did not. They believed in Allah and His Last Primordial Prophet and they did not distort their faith or change it from its’ pristine form.

d.     Those righteous pre-Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, Muslims  include people such as Habib an-Najjar, Qass ibn Sa`idah, Zaid ibn `Amr ibn Nawfal, Waraqah ibn Nawfal, Al-Bara’ as-Sanni, Abu Dhar al-Ghifari, Salman al-Farisi, Bahirah the Monk and the Abyssinian king an-Najashi

e.      The passages in question mention believing in Allah and the Last Day as well as doing good deeds. We know that this ayah is not referring to a Jew, Christian or idol worshipper keeping their faith, as Allah says that He does not accept the good deeds of the kuffar.

Those who do not believe, their deeds are like a mirage in a sandy desert, which the one who is thirsty mistakes for water; until when he comes to it he finds it to be nothing, but he finds Allah with him and Allah will pay him his account and Allah is swift in taking account. [10]

Therefore, they would have to be Muslims in order to have their good deeds accepted and the only way to be a Muslim in truth is through the testimony of faith. Allah has called people who practice other religions unbelievers,

Indeed, those who do not believe from the People of the Book and the idol worshippers, they are in the Fire forever and they are the worst of creation. [11]

Allah says further,

Indeed those who believe and those who are Jews, those who are Sabians, those who are Christians, those who are Magians and those who worship idols, indeed Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. And Allah is Witness over all things. [12]

When commenting upon the above verse, the great student of the companion, Anas ibn Malik, by the name of Imam Qatadah, may Allah be pleased with both of them, remarked, “In this ayah, the six religions are mentioned; five belonging to Shaitan and one for the Most Merciful.” [13]

Imam Badr ud-Din al-`Aini, the great Hanafi scholar, may Allah be pleased with him, has told us, “So whoever should change the Revealed Laws of the Prophets and make his own law, such a law is false and it is impermissible to follow such people.” [14]

The Imam mentions further, “Due to that sin, the Jews and the Christians became kuffar. They hold tight to their distorted law while Allah has declared that all humanity is to follow the Revealed Law of Muhammad.”[15]

Those using general texts such as those above are actually over generalising. This is an almost elementary mistake in application and understanding the Qur’an. If one takes those passages cited as proof, they should put them with others, such as,

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him. And in the Hereafter, he will be one of the losers. [16]

Those who would state that other religions are just as acceptable to stifle racism and create harmony against prejudice are actually prejudicing a person to the truth that could hamper and decrease racism as an institution and give someone eternal salvation from a destruction and conflagration that is eternal.

Does Allah Say that All Religions Are True?

The Words of Our Lord are just,

Indeed the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. [17]

And He warns us yet again,

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him. And in the Hereafter, he will be one of the losers. [18]

 

Allah has again proclaimed that there is only one true faith,

He is the One who sent His Messenger, with guidance and the religion of truth to make it victorious over all other religions, even though the idol worshippers may hate it. [19]

Do All These Religions Have the Same Deity?

We have been told,

Unbelievers! I do not worship that which you worship. Nor will you worship what I worship. And I will not worship what you are worshipping. Nor will you worship what I am worshipping. You have your religion and I have mine. [20]

Thus if all religions were true, from the same source, such revealed words would not need revelation. But what we see is the fact that there are different gods that are worshipped. And only one of them is true. Those outside of the Lord are worshipping idols, Shaitan and/or false gods.

What is the Destination for those Who Have Not Believed in the Shahadah?

There is such a thing as absolute truth. And when there is a true religion, then those outside of that truth are therefore false religions. And if there are true believers, then we also know there are unbelievers. Let us look at the words of Allah,

Hasn’t there come to you news of the overwhelming event? Some faces that day will be humiliated, labouring and toiling wearily.[21]

The Khalifah `Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, once saw a monk who was emaciated and withered from his life of celibacy, penance and worship. He then began to weep. He was asked, “Leader of the believers! Why do you weep?” He replied, “I have remembered the words of Allah and it is due to that passage that I weep.” He then recited the above passage quoted. [22]

It was further stated by the companion Ibn `Abbas as well as other commentators of the first centrury, `Ikrimah, Sa`id ibn Jubair, `Ata’, Zaid ibn Al-Aslam, Qatadah and As-Suddai, the following terrible consequences of this verse, “They are those who do good deeds and strive hard and toil in this life and are from other than the religion of Islam, such as the idol worshippers and the unbelievers of the People of the Book, these being monks and others.”[23]

Shaitan’s Sinister Plot

The believers should know that Shaitan is at war with the believers and will use whatever means he can to destroy them. One of these is to unify Muslims with those who are unbelievers in some form of religion so that believers might approve of the falsehood of unbelievers. This in turn will nullify their faith. Let those with faith heed the Word of Allah,

They took their rabbis, their monks and `Isa, the son of Maryam as lords beside Allah, while they were not ordered except to worship One Unique God. There is no god but Him. Glorified is He above what they associate with Him. [24]

Our Lord says further,

They want to extinguish the Light of Allah with their mouths. But Allah will not allow it, but will perfect and complete His Light, no matter how the unbelievers may dislike it. He is the One who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the True Religion, to be dominant over all other religions, no matter how much the idol worshippers may dislike it. [25]

 

 

 

Allah has also revealed,

And they will not cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. So whoever among you turns back from his faith and dies an unbeliever, then his deeds will be nullified in this life and the Hereafter. And they will be companions of the Fire, abiding therein forever. [26]

The Lord over all has again revealed,

Fight those from the People of the Book who do not believe in Allah, nor the Last Day, nor declare impermissible that which has been declared impermissible by Allah and His Messenger and who do not judge by the Religion of Truth. [27]

If these religions were true, then why were they rejected and Islam alone called the Religion of Truth. It is known from this ayah that Allah does not accept these ways as valid expressions of His Will for humanity.

What Does Allah Say About Judaism?

Is the religion of Judaism a false one or a true one? What has Allah told us? Allah has revealed,

Those who disbelieved from the Children of Israel were cursed on the tongue of Dawud and `Isa, the son of Maryam. This is because they disobeyed and transgressed the bounds. [28]

What Does Allah Say About Christianity?

Rather than listen to politicians, government scholars, journalists and musicians who have no ruling in Islam of authority, let us listen to the One who revealed Himself so that we might obey Him. Listen to His Speech,

Those who say, ‘Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary,’ have disbelieved. And the Messiah said, ‘Children of Israel! Worship Allah as my Lord and Your Lord. Indeed whoever associates partners with Allah, then Allah ahs made the Paradise forbidden for him and their home is the Fire. And for the oppressors will be no help.’[29]

Allah has said of their beliefs,

Indeed, those who say, ‘Allah is of Three,’ have disbelieved. There is no god but a unique and one god. And if you will not abstain from what you say, a terrible punishment will overtake the unbelievers from among them.[30]

It is indeed the case that there are and may be many an unbeliever that has good character, family values and moral integrity. But a relationship with Allah is not based on anything you can do or what you might do.

And a relationship with Him is not based on being the nicest person, but rather on believing and submitting to Him. And if one’s beliefs are wrong, how can their deeds be accepted? And if their faith is wrong, they have no relationship and whatever work they do is in vain.

Allah has already warned Christians of this matter,

People of the Book! Do not exceed the bounds in your faith and do not say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, `Isa, the son of Maryam, was only the messenger of Allah and His word, given to Maryam and a spirit from Him.

So believe in Allah and His Messenger, and do not say, ‘Three!’ Abstain as it is better for you. Allah is only One, Unique God. Glorified be He that He should have a son. He has all of what is in the skies and the Earth and Sufficient is Allah to dispose of all affairs. [31]

Do We Have a Common Covenant In Common with Jews and Christians?

Allah gives us the answer by first discussing the Jews,

But due to their violating the covenant, We cursed them and made their hearts to grow hard. They corrupt words from their proper places and forgot a good part of what was sent to them. And you will find treachery and deceit in all except a few of them. But bear with them and pardon them, for indeed Allah does love those who are faithful. [32]

Allah again mentions the faith of Christians,

And from those who say, ‘We are Christians,’ we took their covenant and they forgot much of what was sent to them. Thus We stirred up enmity and hatred between them until the Day of Resurrection. And Allah will show them what they have done. [33]

Indeed there will always be some friction between those who believe and Jews and Christians as they desire the following,

Never will the Jews and Christians be happy with you until you follow their way. [34]

Allah has told us to tell the Jews and Christians,

Say, ‘People of the Book! Are you criticising us only for believing in Allah, when it has been sent down to us and what has been sent down before and that most of you are rebellious sinners?’ [35]

Was the Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him, Part of the Abrahamic Faiths?

Those seeking the answer to this question can find it in the Infallible Word of Allah,

People of the Book! Why do you dispute about Ibrahim when the Tawrah and the Injil were not revealed until after him? Have you no sense?[36]

Thus we can see there was no Judaism or Christianity, but there was the truth,

Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was a faithful Muslim. And he was not an idol worshipper. [37]

Allah has mentioned those true believers,

Indeed those who are closest to Ibrahim are those who follow him and this Prophet and those who have believed.[38]

The fact is that the Jews and Christians in the time of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, knew who and what he was and rejected him. What then today is the point of them clinging to their false religion and what they have? Listen to the Words of Allah,

And those whom We gave the Book recognise him as they recognise their own sons. But indeed a group among them conceal the truth and they know. [39]

Afraid to Offend

Do not be afraid to tell people the truth about their destination if they should die in that manner and return home unsaved. Don’t worry about the risk of offending when being truthful. Don’t we comprehend the words of Allah?

Indeed, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance which We have sent down after We have made it clear to the people in the Book, they are the ones who will be cursed by Allah and cursed by those who will curse them, except those who repent and do righteous deeds and openly declare things. These, I will accept their repentance and I am the One who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful.[40]

The companion Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, commented that what is being repented from in the ayah is the religion of Judaism.[41]

Allah has told us yet again,

If the People of the Book had believed and had fear of Allah, We would have blotted out their sins and admitted them into Paradise.[42]

The companion Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, states that by fearing Allah they would have repented from Judaism and Christianity and their sins committed in Judaism and Christianity would have been forgiven.[43]

Intolerance and Responsibility

When believers wish to preach the faith, they are often met with resistance not from unbelievers, but from Muslims who actually covertly or overtly move them away from the preaching the faith. They depend upon passages such as,

There is no compulsion in religion. [44]

This ayah is indeed noble and from the Speech of Allah. But the entire ayah and the other for the sake of context needs referencing.

There is no compulsion in religion. The truth stands clear from error. So whoever rejects faith in false gods and believes in Allah, then he has taken hold of the trustworthy hand hold that shall never be broken. Allah is All Hearing, All Knowing.

Allah is the Protector of those who believe. He brings them out of darkness into the light. As for those who disbelieve, their protectors are false gods and they take them from light into the darkness. They are the people of the fire to be therein for all eternity. [45]

The believers in this ayah are being told not to impose the faith by force, as the conviction of the heart is only possible through Allah and the one who does not believe has the responsibility to make such a choice. However, this has nothing to do with whether or not the faith should be preached, hiding the verses of Allah or blatantly contradicting Him to ingratiate oneself to unbelievers.

And a further Statement from Our Saviour is,

Call to the way of your Lord with beautiful preaching and debate and argue with them in ways that are best. Your Lord knows best those who are astray from His Path and He knows those who are guided. [46]

The commentary on this ayah has already been given in other general ayat. It is mentioned by the companion Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, that this ayah means the following, “So call to the way of your Lord, to the religion of your Lord with wisdom of the Qur’an and good preaching, that being the preaching of the Qur’an and do not debate with them except that which is best, which is with the Qur’an and it is also mentioned that one does so with the words, ‘There is no god but Allah.’ ” [47]

The Most Merciful, the King and the Judge spoke the truth when He said,

Say, “People of the Book! Let us come to a common word between us an you that we shall worship none but Allah, and that we shall make no partner for Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords beside Allah.” And if they should turn away, then say, “Bear witness that we are Muslims, submitted to Him.”[48]

Let us again return to the ancient commentary of the great companion Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, who remarked that the ayah translated, “People of the Book! So let us come to the just word of there is no god but Allah between us and you so that we do not declare anyone as one and unique except Allah. And we do not associate as partners for Him anything from the creations.

And we do not take one another as lords, thus no one of us is to obey any of the heads and leaders in disobeying Allah. So we avoid all of that just as Allah said. And if they should turn away and reject the acceptance of Tawhid, then say, ‘You should know that we are Muslims in affirmation that worship and Tawhid is for Him.’

Then He mentioned their specific description with the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, that they are by their statement Muslims on the religion of Ibrahim and that they should call to that as it was in the Tawrah.” [49]

Therefore, this is the word being called to, the common word being that those who do not believe need to become Muslim. Those who do not believe have not been called to practice their religions more strenuously, but to abandon them.

Beware of Compromise

Universalism was attempted with the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and this was rejected. Allah has revealed,

So obey not the deniers. They wish that you might compromise, so that they might compromise as well. [50]

Do Not Let the Good Deeds of an Unbeliever Prevent You from Presenting the Faith

Do not be irresponsible. Do not let the good deeds of an unbeliever prevent you from preaching the truth. Do you want them to find out the following on the Day of Judgement when it is too late?

Say, ‘Shall We inform you regarding the greatest losers in deeds? Those who are astray and have wasted their efforts in this worldly life while they thought that they were working good by way of deeds.’[51]

Remember these words from Allah,

Messenger! Make known that which Allah has revealed to you from your Lord, for if you do not, you will not have conveyed His Message. Allah will protect you from mankind. Allah does not guide the unbelieving people.[52]

Preach the Faith

Allah has commanded that the faith be preached. If this is not done, then we are neglecting a command of Allah. Read the words of the Saviour,

Say, “I preach to you one thing: that you stand up for Allah in pairs or singly.” [53]

The Glorified and Exalted commands us in another place,

And speak out and proclaim the Favour of your Lord.[54]

This faith is worth believing, living, fighting and dying for, regardless of the age. Let us return to the way of the first three generations, put on our spiritual armour and resist the ways of the Shaitan. There is no compromise, no amalgamation or assimilation, only the preaching of salvation and sanctification.

The writer ends this with the affirmation (or signatories if you will) of the names of scholars of the four madhhabs.[55] All those mentioned are atleast at the level of sentencing Qadi, where they could actually dispense the judicial law in court on those found guilty.

They are all agreed that Jews, Christians, idol worshippers of any stripe are kuffar (unbelievers) and that when a Muslim rejects faith, he becomes like them, having become an apostate (Ar. murtadd) and an unbeliever (Ar. kafir).[56]

You must now decide for yourself whether the current “rolling ijma`”[57] is true or the one that came before. Only one can be correct. The very basis of what faith is depends on the answer to the question of who is a Muslim and who is not, so choose carefully.

The list above represents prophets, messengers, scholars from all four schools. Our noble prophets and messengers, peace be upon all of them, in their pronouncements from Allah on false religion, can be gleaned from surahs Ali `Imran (3), ayat 49-60 and 64-68; Al-A`raf (7), ayat 59-206; Surat ul-Kafirun (109), ayat 1-6.

The words of the scholars can be gleaned from the creedal texts they wrote and also books of fiqh, particularly under the sections Kitab ul-Hudud (the Book of Legal Judgements and Punishments) under the Bab ul-Murtadd (the Chapter on the Apostate). Every scholar mentioned above was at the least a Qadi and at most a Shaikh ul-Islam.

We have spared no expense in attempting the quote the best that Muslim Orthodoxy has to offer. Although these scholars lived at different times, their level of knowledge, command of revelation is more adequate than any group of social democrats, musicians, politicians, journalists and assorted theological trash along side reputable scholars who were tricked or lied to in order to garner a signature or stamp.

And we ask Allah to keep blessings our rightly guided teachers who preach and teach with righteousness and authority. And with Allah is every success.

Brother in Islam,

al-Hajj Abu Ja`far al-Hanbali

[2] Surat ul-Ma’idah (5), ayah 3

[4] Surat ud-Duha (93), ayah 11

[5] The writer believes it worthy to ask exactly which Muslims don’t know that the core tenets of Christianity or Judaism are or the basic beliefs/disbeliefs of their adherents.

Particularly irksome are the new foreign born preachers of rose bud Islam, giving coaching lessons in preaching to the kuffar when they never lived, ate, drank or went to school with them. How these people-who have lived sheltered lives around the gates or rulers, or in locations with no kuffar-came to be experts on Islam is an enigma to the writer.

[6] AD 1191-1273 (ruled AD 1232-1273). A former ruler of a section of Spain and a hopeless coward. After capitulating to Christianity and praising their false religion, he quickly converted and fell in step with the rest of the unbelievers. He even chose his own name, Gonzales Fernandez Zegri. See Islamic Spain, 1250-1500, by Leonard Patrick Harvey, pp. 331-332.

This is the word of a companion who learned directly from the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, which is also present in the other commentary literature. This ayah has nothing to do with debating using Hellenistic theology, Shakespeare or any other speech that is not the True Speech of Allah.

[55] These are the only valid madhhabs accepted by consensus and the Imams who compiled them have each been prophesied by the Messenger of Allah, which should be enough for us to understand their rank.

[56] The writer is not suggesting in any way in this text that there is to be no contact between Muslims and unbelievers and that we are not to treat are neighbours with righteousness but if one reads and listens to the words of the advocates of universalism, what is being advised is far more than merely respecting your neighbour.

[57] The author is referring to a new customer that has appeared amongst counterfeit preachers and teachers. This tenet of faith basically allows the rolling of the calendar cycle to dictate when something has been agreed upon. A case in point is regarding intoxicants such as cigarettes.

The writer has in his possession rulings from the year AD 1656 and earlier ruling that smoking is impermissible. There is one that even states consensus. But the current thieves and wolves in the Ummah’s leadership positions state that the matter is “perplexing to scholars” and that the harms and dangers of cigarettes until just recently were “virtually unknown to the scholars.”

A new ijma` or consensus was devised in which there was “agreement that there was disagreement”; the same holds true for marriages by earthly lords and false religions, usury in its’ various forms as well as same sex marriages.

Gone are the agreed upon precepts before, as today is a new age. Thus there is a new ijma` to replace the old ijma`. These people still have yet to present their evidence for the rolling ijma` in any written or spoken form that is intelligible and traceable to the first three generations.
