THE NUMBER ONE ENEMY OF GOD’S MIRACLE:
Ismail Faroogi: To Heaven or Hell
Ever since the violent demise of Ismail Farooqi on Ramadan 19, 1406, every "Muslim" publication in the world has been mourning. Every "Muslim" publication has declared that Farooqi is a martyr who is heading straight to Heaven because he died in the cause of God. We present evidence herein that the exact opposite is true. Ismail Farooqi has devoted his life to fighting God, God’s final Prophet Muhammad, and God’s miracle that came to us through Muhammad. After ten years of refusing to endorse the truth and to support the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, Farooqi received his just and inevitable retribution. It is God’s judgment, not ours, that his retribution in the Hereafter is far worse and everlasting (see Qur’an 20:127).
Dr. Ismail Farooqi was an intelligent and highly influential man. He was head of the Oriental (Islamic) Studies Department at the prestigious Temple University of Philadelphia. Millions of people around the world respected his opinion, and were profoundly influenced by him. Had he accepted the truth of God’s miracle in Qur’an, the 19-based mathematical code, the whole Muslim world would have been vastly better off today. But he arrogantly and adamantly rejected the truth, calling the undeniable facts of the Qur’an’s miracle, "trash."
Here is a miracle of overwhelming proportions, proving by means of physical evidence for the first time in history that Qur’an is indeed God’s message to the world. Here is a phenomenon that the Alighty Himself describes as "ONE OF THE GREATEST MIRACLES" (74:35). Instead of putting his prestige and influence in the service of God’s message, and mobilizing his millions of admirers, Farooqi chose to oppose God and one of His greatest miracles (74:35). What kind of destiny would you expect for such an enemy of God? God’s retribution was so devastating, Farooqi had to agonize over the untimely death of his son only weeks before his own tragic death together with his wife.
For 10 years, I prayed to God to guide Ismail Farooqi to the truth, and to mobilize him into a significant force supporting God’s undeniable miracle. But Farooqi continued to set himself up as the miracle’s number one enemy. People everywhere sought after his opinion about God’s miracle, but he persisted in opposing it. It is hard to believe that Farooqi did not understand the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle. It is hard to believe that he did riot see the undeniable truth therein. Why then did he so adamantly oppose the most important Islamic development since the revelation of Qur’an?!!!
What were the forces that bought him? We will find out for sure on the Day of Judgment. My guess is that the Saudi religious hierarchy, who have amassed millions of dollars and human resources to fight the miracle, had bought Farooqi. This is a pretty safe bet, since the corrupt Saudi religious establishment has been financing Farooqi’s projects for many years.
HERE IS THE EVIDENCE
The mathematical miracle of Qur’an, well known to the readers of this Bulletin, is based on the number 19 (Qur’an 74:30). As detailed in many books, pamphlets, bulletins, etc, published by this Masjid, the number 19 is the common denominator throughout the Qur’an’s miracle. Nineteen, as it turns out, is God’s signature upon everything He has created (your body contains 209 bones, or 19x11; the sun, moon, and Earth are aligned in the same relative position once every 19 years; etc). Nineteen means GOD IS ONE. Most readers know all these incredible facts and the undeniable details, of God’s 19—based miracle in Qur’an.
The Qur’an teaches us that this overwhelming miracle will be either a blessing for those who appreciate it, or a terrible terrible curse for those who reject it. Please see Qur’an 74:37.
While Ismail Farooqi was rejecting the 19-based miracle of Qur’an, the number 19 was totally surrounding him, and condemning him:
It is ironic that Sura 74 (1406=19x74) is where the number 19 is mentioned. Qur’an is a current
book of knowledge, addressing current events. Verses 18 through 23 of Sura 74 fit the description of Dr. Farooqi to an amazing degree. It is also amazing in this era of advanced forensic investigations that the killer or killers of Dr. Farooqi have not been found; they seem to have vanished into thin air.
I can see it now; despite these overwhelming signs, those who are blocked out by God, (18:57), will shrug their shoulders and say, "coincidence."
Here are some other profound facts:
The number 19 is a blessing for those who heed God’s truths,
and a terrible, terrible, curse for those who reject them.
FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
OF THE UNITED ISLAMIC NATION
San Francisco Dhul I-Iijja 22’24, 1406 (August 29-31, 1986)
by Jahan Spooner
More than 100 brothers and sisters from all over the world welcomed a new era of Islamic thought at the first meeting of the United Islamic Nation (UIN) near San Francisco.
"This is the advent of a new era. We are the lucky generation," said Rashad Khalifa of Tucson, Arizona.
"This meeting has generated a spark which could lead to the ignition of worldwide movement, a worldwide renaissance," said Eric Tornwall of Fribourg, Switzerland.
The meeting opened with the Friday Prayer on August 29, and ended with the noon prayer on Sunday Aug 31. Discussions were carried on from six a.m. to nine p.m. each day.
All participants had already alienated themselves from the rest of the Muslim world by rejecting Hadith & Sunna and declaring Qur’an, the word of God, as the only legitimate source of religious guidance (Qur’an 19, 38, & 114).
The meeting provided a forum in which these brave believers could share experiences, express concerns and listen to speakers whose aims parallel their own.
Some memorable talks included explanation of the number 19 - God’s signature on Qur’an, the position of Muslim women in society and a lecture by Kassim Ahmad (a prominent figure in Malaysian politics) on the current Islamic renaissance.
Brother Ismail Barakat delivered the Friday Sermon on "Legal and ethical reasons for rejecting Hadith." After a lively introduction of all participants by Sister Mehri Perouz and Brother Rashad Khalifa, outstanding lectures were delivered over the 3-day period by Raymond Catton, Ferouz Karmally, Malik Au, Dr. Rashid Hamed, Soussan Rey, Ihsan Ramadan, Sayyidah Ahmad, and Sophia Catton. The most controversial lecture was delivered Saturday by Sister Soussan Rey.
