IRAN & IRAQ SQUANDER
MUSLIM PEOPLES’ MONEY
GIVE IT AWAY TO JEWS
(THE MANUFACTURERS OF WEAPONS]
IN ORDER TO KILL EACH OTHER
What will Iran gain when they "win the war"?
What will Iraq gain when they "win the war"?
God gave the Muslim peoples of Iran & Iraq immense wealth, oil: enough wealth to make them the most prosperous people on earth.
What did Iran & Iraq do with God’s gift? They gave it a way to the Jews & Christians in France, England, & USA. They used God’s gift to acquire death, devastation, poverty, and misery.
Is it any clearer now that the Muslims’ eternal happiness, prosperity, and salvation can ONLY be attained by uniting behind Qur’an, the whole Qur’an, and nothing but Qur’an?
God Almighty never looks for excuses to reject our Salat prayers. On the contrary, He wants us to do the right thing and to attain salvation (Qur’an 3 9:7). The mathematical miracle of Qur’an has now pointed out certain crucial requirements that must be fulfilled in order for the Salat to be accepted.
In the August issue of M.P., it was pointed out that the liturgy (Salat Prayers) must be observed to the letter as revealed by God through Abraham, and modified through Muhammad. The numerical structure of the Salat words must be strictly observed; the increase or decrease of one letter destroys the numerical combination and nullifies the Salat prayer. Consequently, the contact between the worshiper and God cannot take place.
The Qur’an teaches us that when Adam sinned, he could not utilize his own words to repent and express his remorse; God taught him the exact words whereby he repented and was redeemed (see Qur’an 2:37).
The words and letters of the Salat Prayer are mathematically composed by God Himself and must be uttered in precisely the divine design of counts and sounds. The slightest alteration nullifies Salat. The word "SALAT" is rooted in the Arabic word "SILAT" which means "CONNECTION." As pointed out in the August issue, this CONNECTION cannot take place unless the numerical structure of the liturgy is strictly observed. Unfortunately, Satan has succeeded in altering the Salat prayers for millions of Muslims, thus depriving them of making contact with their Creator. First, he talked them into adding the word "AMEEN" at the end of Al-Fatihah. This word is foreign, not Arabic, and is never mentioned in Qur’an. But it effectively destroys the numerical structure of the Salat words by adding more letters and sounds. Second, all imams of all schools of thought (Madhahib or Sects), be them Sunni or Shi’a, have unanimously agreed that the recitation of Qur’an after Al-Fatihah in Salat is not obligatory. Our Creator orders us in 20:14 that Salat shall be devoted to Him alone. Qur’an mentions Mary, Muhammad, Jesus, Moses, Abraham, and many other names, and the usage of Qur’an in Salat leads to the mentioning of, other names besides God. This destroys Salat. We are commanded to never mention any other names in Salat beside the name of God (Qur’an 72:18). Third, Satan perfected his scheme by advocating TASHAHHUD. in Salat, where the Muslims are tricked into commemorating Muhammad and his family, and Abraham and his family. These additions utterly destroy the connection (Salat) between the worshiper and his/her Creator.
TO SUMMARIZE this vital issue, the Salat prayer must fulfill the following requirements in order to be accepted:
(1) No name other than the name of God shall be mentioned anywhere during Salat.
(2) Only Al-Fatlhah, as written in Quran, and only in Arabic, shall be uttered in the standing position.
(3) No "Ameen" or any other utterance shall be mentioned after Al-Fat ihah.
(4) The Tashahhud shall be "ASH-HADU ALLA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH, WAHDAHU LA SHAREEKA LAH." (I bear witness that there is no god except God; He is One; there are no idols besides Him). Any other statement to the same effect is acceptable.
Knowledge and Ignorance
The pattern and curricula of the existing religious educational institutions were devised during a phase of decadence in Islamic society and since then there has been little revision. Knowledge in these institutions is frozen and fossilized, and has become entirely irrelevant to the needs of contemporary society. They were made by the men of an age for the requirements of that age. Their interpretation of the Koran and the Sunnah was their own; it was not Divine, nor eternal, nor unchangeable. And now, although most of the teaching has become obsolete, it is regarded as sacred and immutable and goes under the name of real Islam, and real knowledge. It is this reluctance to learn, to reform, and to understand Islam in relation to the changing needs of social order and compulsions of history, that is the real cause of ignorance in Muslim society today.
The maintenance of the status quo, the continuance of the feudal system, the theological hold on the masses and the superstitious, dogmatic approach to religion, have all provided very strong support for the advancement and assertion of ignorance.
The greatest calamity is that qualified, competent and sincere scholars are discredited and maligned as enemies of Islam, and every effort is made to muffle and repress them, depriving them even of the right to live. New ideas and new thoughts can come only from such men, but they are looked upon with suspicion and distrust. Hence, Muslim society now suffers from intellectual stagnation. The greatest appeal in he Koran is the intellectual appeal. God has asked men again and again to think and ponder over His signs (ayat), commandments and wisdom.
Finally, we should remember that Islam is a world religion. Its message is addressed to the whole of mankind. The responsibility of carrying this message to other men lies primarily with the present believers. But when these believers are themselves steeped in ignorance how can they lead others to knowledge? Islam is knowledge itself, and not ignorance, for God says: 'But it is clear revelations in the hearts of those who have been given knowledge, and none deny our revelations save wrong doers.’ [29:49]
