MAKING "SALAWAAT" ON THE PROPHET
IS IDOL-WORSHIP (SHIRK)
The most popular Quranic verse among the Muhammadan masses is 33:56 which says:
"God and His angels support the prophet ;O you who believe, you shall support him and regard him as he should be regarded." When you ask the average Muhammadan,
"What do the words SULLOO 'ALAYHI mean," he or she invariably states that they mean, "Utter Salawaat, i.e., meditate on Muhammad day and night." Right here, one detects Satan's trick, and his enormous success in turning sincere Muslims into idol-worshiping Muhammadans. Only a few verses ahead of 33:56, we see a powerful commandment to commemorate our Almighty Creator, Most High, Be He Glorified For Ever, - to meditate on His Holy names, and glorify Him day and night:
"O you who believe, you shall commemorate God continuously, and glorify Him
day and night" (33:41-42).
But Satan decided that he would rather see the Muslims commemorate the powerless human being Muhammad (7:188, 10:49, 18:110, 41:6, & 72:21), instead of the Living, Eternal, Lord of all creation. Although Verse 33:43 clearly states that God and His angels: support (YUSAL-LOON) all the righteous believers, Satan succeeded in manipulating the Muslim masses into
becoming Muhammadans who dedicate most of their worship to the Prophet.
Let us now look at 33:56 and see what it really says:
(1) First of all, Muhammad is described in this verse as "NABI" (prophet). This particular description is used throughout the Quran, exclusively, when talking about Muhammad when he was alive, and never after his death. Repeatedly, I have challenged the Muhammadan Ulema to show me a verse where Muhammad is referred to as NABI after his death, and they failed to meet the challenge.
(2) There are many narration’s in the Quran that deal with specific historical events, and verses meant for the believers during specified periods. Any narration’s connected with the word NABI were applicable only during the prophet's life on this earth. For example, there is a
commandment in 49:2 ordering the believers not to raise their voices above the voice of the NABI. How can we carry out this commandment NOW? Obviously, the Prophet is dead (39:30), and has no voice ; this commandment, therefore, ended when the Prophet died.
(3) The words YUSALLOON or SALLOO or YUSALEE or SALAT are all derived from
the root word WASALA, the noun being WASL, or making contact. The word SALLOO, therefore, means to keep in contact with the Prophet, to join him, to be with him, and to support him with all our strength. Of course, this could be done only when he was alive. Hence the use of the word NABI.
(4) Because the believers observe the SALAT prayers five times daily, they are in contact with their Creator, and their Creator is in contact with them. This is why we see that God and His angels do the same thing for the believers, as well as for the Prophet (33:42). But the Muhammadans have taken the whole thing out of context, and persist in idolizing Muhammad
against his will.
(5) The Prophet himself was ordered to MAKE SALAT (keep in contact or support) the believers (9:103).
The Muhammadan masses forget all these facts; Satan has hypnotized them into commemorating Muhammad and meditating on his name day and night. THIS IS FLAGRANT IDOL WOR-SHIP that is despised by God, his messenger, and all Muslims (only Muhammadans like it). Verse 30:40 reminds us that God is the one who created us; God is the one who provides for us; God is the one who terminates our lives; God is the one who resurrects us for recompense. None of the idols does any of these things. Thus, the true Muslims commemorate their Almighty Creator, meditate on His glorious names, and proclaim His glory day and night.
For the First Time:
MUHAMMADAN LEADER (Abu Ameenah Phillips)
RECOGNIZES MATHEMATICAL MIRACLE OF QURAN
The mathematical miracle of the Quran has exposed a plethora of innovations that plagued Islam for many centuries. Prominent among these innovations are the so called "Hadith and Sunna" which are manipulative lies attributed to the Prophet, and frequently attack the Prophet's character and righteousness. The Muhammadan masses of course became upset, since the
inherited innovations have become an integral part of their now-false religion. All of a sudden, the extremely popular miracle of God in His Quran, became a subject of vicious attacks. The Muhammadans forget that their idol, Muhammad, was a very popular man just before being God's chosen messenger. All of a sudden, Quraish and the Arabs wanted to kill him. Just
like that: he was very popular and beloved by everyone, then suddenly, they wanted to kill him. What exactly happened? Muham-mad asked them to abandon their idols and worship their Creator alone; that is what happened.
When the Quran's miracle exposed the idolatry of the Muhammadans, they first tried to ignore the miracle. But it continued to stare them in the face. They then tried to discredit it, and in the process they made some outrageousstatements like: "Basmalah does not consist of 19 letters," "The Quran does not consist of 114 (19x6) suras," The first revelation (96:1-5) was not 19 words," "The number 19 is not a Quranic number, but a Bahai number," "Rashad Khalifa is a Bahai," and soon. The Miracle continued to explode (see M.P. of November 87) in accordance with God's promise in 41:53. The Muhammadan leaders then could Dot ignore the Miracle any more; they had to face the mindless sheep who blindly believe anything they say, and do something. Finally, a Muhammadan leader, Abu Ameenah Phillips, had to confess that indeed there is a 19-based mathematical miracle in the Quran.
He writes an article to refute the miracle, but ends up proving it; he makes the following conclusion;
There are four chapters in which the total occurrence of the prefixed letters add up to a multiple of 19: Surah Qaf (50), prefixed by the letter Qaf, Surah alqalam (68), prefixed by the letter Nun, Surah Ya Sin (36), prefixed by the letters Ya Sin, and Surah Maryam (19), prefixed by the
letters Kaf Ha Ya 'Ain Sad."
Well, congratulations Abu Ameenah; you are just beginning to see the light. How would you explain this strange phenomenon? If you take only the tiny portion of the Miracle that you were permitted to see, what do you conclude from your confession that Suras 50, 68, 36, and 19 consistently contain a multiple of 19, with regard to their prefixed initials? What is your
Mr. Phillips exhibits heroic attempts to discredit God's Miracle. For example, he criticizes the fact that the Ha Meem-initialed suras (40-46) contain 2147 Ha+Meem (19x113). He wants me to count them separately. WHY? Because, if you count the Ha Meem content of each Sura, separately, it would not be a multiple of 19. This destroys the miracle. Mr. Phillips dictates his own strings upon the Almighty author of the Quran. God Almighty wrote the Quran with seven suras prefixed with Ha Meem. When we count the unique and distinct letters Ha and Meem in these seven Ha Meem-initialed suras, the total is a multiple of 19. Mr. Phillips doesn't like that. "You must count the suras separately," he insists in his article. This fantastic miracle that every Muhammadan must hate, and every Muslim must be proud of, is strengthened by the fact that sura 42 also contains another set of Quranic initials, 'Ain Seen Qaf. When you count the
unique and distinct letters 'Ain, Seen, and Qaf in sura 42, the total is 209 (19x11). "No," says Abu Ameenah, "You must add Ha Meem to it," even though the letters Ha Meem and 'Ain Seen Qaf exist in two separate verses. Furthermore, although Mr. Phillips confessed that the letter Qaf in Sura Qaf is a multiple of 19, he failed to confess that the letter Qaf in the Qaf-initialed sura 42 is also a multiple of 19;in fact, this sura contains the very same number of Qafs as Sura Qaf. Abu Ameenah's hatred of God's miracle drove him to this kind of misleading criticism, only to prove beyond doubt that those who agree with him are mindless sheep.
Mr. Phillips and his Muhammadan friends want, in vain, to mess up God's miracle. He and all the humans and all the Jinns on earth can never do that. God's miracle will only grow in strength until it utterly overwhelms the world. The Muham-madans will then be left in the lurch, biting their fingers due to rage and frustration.

MUHAMMAD YUSUF (New Zealand)
REFUTES LIES OF MUHAMMADAN LEADERS
Muzzamil Siddique & Othman Gaafar)
[Muzzammil Siddiqui accused Rashad Khalifa of being "out of the fold of Islam!"]
Prophet Muhammad, the deliverer of the Quran (13:40), was called "crazy" (7:184) by the idolators of Arabia who could not understand the message he was delivering.
Should one be surprised, if a follower of the Quran is regarded as out of the fold of Islam by a person who claims to believe in the Quran but deviates, even from its very straightforward verses, day after day, 365 days per year?
O you who believe when you get up for the contact prayers (salat) you shall:
(1) wash your faces,
(2) and your hands to the elbows,
(3) wipe your heads, and
(4) wash your feet. (5:6)

MUHAMMAD YUSUF (NEW ZEALAND) REFUTES THE LIES OF MUHAMMADANS [MUZZAMMIL
SIDDIQUl & OTHMAN GAAFAR] (Continued from Page 3)
When you observe your contact prayers (Salat), your voice shall not be too loud, nor too low; you shall maintain an intermediate tone. (17:110)
Urdu translation by "Maulana" Fateh Jallendhri: Aur Namaz na buland awaz se
padho aur na ahista, balke iske beech ka tarika iktiyar karo.
The places of worship belong to God ; therefore, do not mention any other names beside the name of God. (72:18)
Does Muzammil Siddiqui or Othman Gaafr perform their ablution (wudu) and say their Salat prayers according to the commands of Allah ? No, otherwise Muzammil Siddiqui would have not regarded a true Muslim to be out of the fold of Islam. (Rashad Khalifa may be out of the fold of Muhammadanisn, but certainly not out of the fold of Islam).
Prophet Mohammed was ordered by Allah never to deviate from the Quran even a little bit. He was warned that deviation would mean severe punishment for him :
They almost diverted you (Muhammad)from our revelations to you; they wanted you to fabricate something else to consider you a friend. If it were not that we strengthened you, you almost leaned towards them a little bit. Had you done so, we would have doubled the punishment for you in this life, and after death; no one could have protected you. (17:73-75)
Which god besides Allah has given permission to Muzzammil Siddiqui and Othman Gaafar to deviate from the Quran, while prophet Muhammed was not given such a privilege?
In fact, Muzzammil Siddiqui himself has gone astray and is out of the fold of true Islam the Quran. His problem is that he thinks he is righteous.
Anyone who disregards the message of the Most Gracious, we appoint a devil to be his constant companion. The devils than divert them from the right path, yet make them think that they are rightly guided. (43:36-37).
Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips has tried very hard to contradict Dr. Rashad Khalifa, who says that the Quran is beyond any doubt the infallible word of God. As a matter of fact, opposing Dr. Khalfa has become a lucrative business for some.
Do you believe Allah or not?
**Allah calls Quran COMPLETE (6:115)
**Allah calls Quran PERFECT (6:38)
**Allah calls Quran FULLY DETAILED, (6:114)
**Allah is the teacher of Quran (55:1-2)
**Allah is the explainer of Quran (75:19)
**Allah revealed the best Hadith (39:23)
**The sole function of Muhammad: deliver Quran, (13:40)
**Muhammad was forbidden from uttering any religious instructions other than Quran (69:38-47)
**Abraham is the founder of Islam (22:78). -
**All religious practices of Islam came through
Abraham (2:135, 3:67-68, 16:123, 2:127-128, 2:43, 2:125, 21:72-73, 2:187, 22:26-27).
WHY THEN DO WE NEED HADITH & SUNNAH?
Anyone who believes in Allah, will have no reason to have Hadith & Sunnah which are attributed to prophet Muhammad but, in fact, have nothing to do with him.
You cannot follow Hadith & Sunnah unless you disbelieve in what Allah has said in the Quran.
YOU CANNOT BELIEVE IN BOTH THE QURAN AND HADITH: IF YOU BELIEVE IN HADITH YOU ARE A REJECTOR OF QURAN, AND IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE QURAN, YOU MUST REJECT HADITH
