GOD then nullifies what the Devil has done.

GOD perfects His revelations.

 

 

 

Baha`i Faith
SATAN’S RELIGION

 

It is a part of God’s system that He allows Satan and his forces (human and jinn devils) to interfere in the work done by His messengers (6:112; 22:52). God’s guidance sent through His messengers provides us with the light; it helps us see the truth. Satan is permitted to cast shadows of darkness around the truth in order to conceal it. For it is also a part of God’s system that we must be tested. We must want to see God’s light; we must be willing to fight the devil to tear down his corrupted foundation in order to exit the darkness and God willing, enter into the light.

 

Satan’s grand evil scheme has at least three folds.

1)  He becomes offensive against God’s religion. With the help of his constituents, he overshadows the truth in order to corrupt the religion.

2)  Having corrupted the religion, he offers his own alternative, Satan’s religion. And

3) Having been forewarned and shown the signs of the beginning of his end, he prepares to put up a fight in order to defend his satanic stands against God’s forces.

 

The Quran teaches us that God’s religion has always been the same religion (42:13). God’s messengers and prophets delivered one and the same message. They advocated the worship of God alone without the idolization of anything or anyone beside Him. Every time God sends guidance through His messengers, the devil’s recruits the so-called religious scholars get busy. They add piles upon piles of nonsensical innovations in order to conceal the truth.

 

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 elicit gains.

 

Corrupted religious leaders have truly fulfilled Satan’s expectations. Man-made religions, sects, and denominations are widespread. So much mischief is committed and blood is shed in the name of God and religion. Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., are so severely corrupted that in actuality they have become satanic cults. The satanic nature of these corrupted religions cans be easily recognized. Almighty God commands, “Do not commit evil.” But much evil has been committed in the name of these religions. Almighty God commands, “You shall not kill.” But the most vicious killers have done the killings in the name of these religions. Satan has achieved the first part of his objective. He has corrupted God’s religion, and shown the inadequacies of existing religions to solve the problems we face on this Earth. At this point, the stage is set that he takes on the next step of his satanic scheme. He offers an alternative religion, Satan’s religion, Bahai’ism, a religion that is to accommodate all the corrupted religions.

 

In the following, God willing, we offer a brief treatise with reference to the Baha’I Faith and the Quran. All the praises are due to the Almighty God. We have irrefutable physical evidence that we are able to present before any panel proving that the Quran is indeed the word of God. Please bear in mind that Baha’is at least claim that they believe that the Quran is the word of God.

 

Muhammad the Final Prophet:

The Quran teaches us that the prophets are given scripture and wisdom (3:81). The Quran also says that Muhammad was a messenger of God and the Final prophet (33:40). Thus the Quran that was revealed through Muhammad is the Final Testament. Consequently, the Baha’i books, Bayan and Aqdas, revealed after the Final Testament cannot be from God, and therefore, they are satanic revelations.

 

The Quran – A complete fully detailed book:

Almighty God says, “We did not leave anything out of this book.” (6:38). This is God’s assertion that the Quran is fully detailed.

 

6:114. Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed?

 

Only Satan and his constituents rebut God's assertion.

 

All messengers preach in their own tongue:

The Quran teaches us that no messenger was sent except to preach in the tongue of his people in order to clarify things for them (14:4). Farsi was both Bab’s and Bahaullah’s mother tongue. Many of the scriptural writings are in Arabic and mostly in poor grammar (this may be denied by the Iranian Baha’is, but too many copies of the original writings are available to cover up).

 

Messengers confirm existing scriptures:

The Quran teaches us that God's messengers confirm the previous scriptures, 2:101, 3:3, 3:81 and 5:46.

 

Matthew 5:17. “Do not think that I came to destroy the law, or the prophets: I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”

 

It appears that both Bab and Bahaullah like to refer to their books Bayan and Aqdas as their book of revelation with their teachings replacing the laws of the Quran and announcing the beginning of a new spiritual age. Only Satan’s messengers come to contradict and destroy the law. Fasting was changed from Ramadan and 30 days (2:185) to March and 19 days, etc.

 

Changing the calendar – The Quran says:

 

9:36. The count of months, as far as GOD is concerned, is twelve. This has been GOD's law, since the day He created the heavens and the earth.

 

Why the number of months was changed to 19 with 19 days, ending up with several days in limbo (intercalary days)? Are they suggesting that Almighty God changed His mind? The wrath of God is upon Satan!

 

Creating a religious sect:

God clearly admonishes man from creating religious sects (6:159). This is also true of those who call themselves Shi'i, Sunni, Baptist, Methodist, etc.

 

Accepting the Bible as the word of God:

The Quran that supersedes and consummates all previous scriptures (5:48, 35:31) condemns those who say that Messiah is the Son of God and condemns "Trinity" (5:72,73, 18:4-5). The Quran honors and confirms the previous scriptures (2:97, 12:111). However, it points to the fact that the present day scripture is corrupted (2:146, 4:171 and 5:15)

 

Baha'i, an agnostic concept rather than theist:

Bahaullah seems to want to imply a god beyond comprehension of man, contrary to the teachings of the Quran, which clearly defines God in the first Sura, the Key, Al-Fatehah.

 

Glorification of Bahaullah:

Throughout the Quran, Muhammad is depicted as an ordinary man and along with other messengers is chastised many times (17:73-75; 33:37, 66:1, 80:1-10). The Quran makes it clear not to revere human beings (5:44), not even the prophets (41:6; 18:110). Reading Baha'i literature, one can clearly see a glorification of the founders. This is particularly clear by various titles given to the leaders such as Bahaullah, manifestation of God, etc. Apparently in Aqdas, the man himself claims some form of divinity.

 

Claiming to have the power to intercede:

The Quran teaches us that all intercession belongs to God (39:44). The intercession of intercessors will never help (2:123; 74:48) and will not be accepted (9:80; 11:45,46). We read in "Bahaullah and the New Era" that those who are near the divine court are allowed to intercede and their intercession is approved by God. Further it claims that intercession is one of the attributes belonging to the "manifestations of God;" meaning Bahaullah himself. This is in direct conflict with the Quranic teachings. Intercession is Satan's most effective bait to entice people into idol worship.

 

HISTORICAL PROBLEMS

 

Baha'i doctrine seems to have culminated from Shaykhi belief based on the need for the existence of a mediatory to a Hidden Imam, which started from seventh Shi'i Imam, Musa Al-Kazim. Some believed that Musa Al-Kazim was the last Imam and would never die. In fact many did not believe that he died of poisoning, and Harun, the Khalifa at the time had to make a public display of his body in Baghdad to convince the followers, otherwise. The concept of Mehidism kept resurfacing after the death of most of the Imams until the death of Hasan Al-Askari, the eleventh Imam who apparently did not have a son. After his death the Shi'is were thrown into confusion and fragmented into many groups.

 

It is difficult to assess, at this distance in the history and with the bias of the sources available, exactly what happened. But Shi'i sources claim that Hasan Al-Askari had a five-year-old son at the time of his death. And, they challenged the Eleventh Imam's brother, Jafar, who now assumed that he was the Imam. Jafar was asked about the boy, and he said that he did not know whom the boy was. For this reason, Jafar has been vilified by generations of Shi'is as Kazab, the liar. The Shi'i tradition states that the boy subsequently went into occultation with a man named Uthman Al-Amri assuming the position of intermediary, wakil or Bab. The final and fourth bab, Ali Ibn Muhammed Al-Samarri, produced an ordinance by the hidden Imam stating that his occultation was to last until the end of time during which no agent of the hidden Imam will be on the Earth. Apparently, there is considerable evidence that this story was the base for a later superimposition of the interpretation on the fact of history. There are two books that give a good account to these events, "The Shadow of God and Hidden Imam" by Said Amir Arjomand, and "Shi'i Islam" by Moojan Momen.

 

As time went on and tradition replaced the truth taught by the Quran, many other sects within Shi'i appeared. The most relevant one is the Shaykhi School that believes in the doctrine that since there is no similarity between God and man, man can never know God's Essence and the prophets stand as an intermediary between man and God. The founder of this sect, Shaykh Ahmad, attempted to intellectualize the ridiculous story of the Hidden Imam by claiming that the Imam lived on in a world of archetypal images. [Some of their other beliefs are; Imams are the instruments of the creation of the world, Heaven or Hell is the results of men's actions, which create the situation of either Heaven or Hell in each individual's personal life.]

 

The approach of the lunar year 1260 (1844 AD) was accompanied by a general rise in expectancy of the Hidden Imam, because that year marked the one thousand year anniversary of the period of occultation. Many Shi'is were looking forward to this year with great anticipation. In 1844 Sayyid Ali Muhammed Shirazi, a student of Shaykh Kazim Rashti of Shaykhi School, put forward a claim to be “Bab,” the gate to Hidden Imam. But later on, he advanced the claim to being the returned Twelfth Imam himself.

 

A few years after Ali Muhammed was killed, one of his disciples, Mirza Husayn Ali, claimed to be the messianic figure fulfilling the messianic expectations of other religions, and the rest is history.

 

As we can see in the above, the entire Baha'i Faith is based on Shaykhism, which is based on Mehdisim, which is based on occultation of the non-existence 12th Imam. All their other beliefs are almost the same as Shaykhi School. Simply somebody is trying to create a reality out of a series of tooth-fairy stories.

 

PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS

 

Doctrine of Mehdisim is contrary to the teachings of the Quran. Islam (Submission to GOD alone) is a force that commands human beings to think and to explore all areas of thoughts. It refers to our intelligence.

 

17:36. You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them.

 

We are responsible for the decision we make and the actions we take. We must not allow ourselves to be guided by arbitrary faith, authority, or other substitutes for reason and evidence. We must base our understanding of the world not only on what we can perceive with our senses, but also what we can comprehend with our intelligence.

 

Mehdi, the living Imam or prophet, revives the idea of priesthood and extinguishes the celebration of man from coming out of the age of darkness and ignorance into the age of light and intellect. Mehdism made sense for the primitive man. Ignorance of the basic tenets of freedom and democracy periodically propelled man into abyss of aggression and desperation. The only hope left for him was the thought of a messianic figure that would arrive with miraculous power and save him from destruction.

 

Now the time has come that man, using his own devices, can recognize the singular creative force. All the praises are due to Almighty God. We are able to verify, witness, and appreciate the physical evidence, God's true manifestation. His manifestation, which comes to us in a form of, a book mathematically composed far beyond human capability. The Quran, "the Mehdi," has arrived and is ready for the world.

 

Prophet Mohammad included the following verse in his letters summoning the heads of nations to faith.

 

3:64. "O followers of the scripture, let us come to a logical agreement between us and you: that we shall not worship except GOD; that we never set up any idols besides Him, nor set up any human beings as lords beside GOD."

 

This verse alone nullifies Baha'i faith. What divides and disintegrate man individually and socially is man's attachment to objects and human beings. This attachment and dependency subconsciously becomes a form of idol worship. Our God is whoever or whatever occupies our mind most. Now ask yourself, who is your God? Are your children (7:190) your god, or your spouse (9:24), your business (18:32-35), or your ego (25:43)? This is why one of the most important commandments in the Quran is:

 

33:41-42. "O you who believe, you shall remember God frequently. You shall glorify Him day and night.”

 

This is why we can not have anything on this Earth that becomes the subject of our glorification, a shrine, a 19 sided mosque, a person with long winded titles, etc.

 

Those who do not know Farsi and cannot read many historical books written about the emergence of the Baha'i faith are at a disadvantage for they cannot see the whole picture. As for Baha'i books of revelation, "Bayan and "Aqdas" one should ask the Baha'i Publishing Trust if they can provide a complete untouched and factual translation of the documents. What they provide is basically selections or synopses and codifications. Is this an attempt to cover up? Do they have materials in their books of revelations, which could cause embarrassment?

 

SATANIC TRICK

 

The Quran tells us that God has created seven universes in layers. About the smallest and the innermost of the seven universes we read:

 

37:6. We have adorned the lowest heaven with adorning planets.

37:7. We guarded it from every evil devil.

37:8. They cannot spy on the High Society; they get bombarded from every side.

37:9. They have been condemned; they have incurred an eternal retribution.

37:10. If any of them ventures to charge the outer limits, he gets struck with a fierce projectile.

 

The Quran tells us that the devils are confined in our universe. But also the Quran tells us that the devils used to sit at the borderlines in order to spy (72:9). Obviously, if the devils never had obtained any information, they would not take the risk of going back to spy on the High Society. In accordance with God’s will, Satan was allowed to see the signs of the beginning of his end on this Earth. And he was allowed to do his most devilish scheme in order to counter God’s plan. Unveiling the secret of the Quran “Over it is 19” is one of the signs.

 

Satan knows that regardless of widespread ignorance, the majority of the people on Earth would not accept that there are 19 days in a month and 19 months in a year because the stupidity of the claim can easily be recognized. He knows that the majority of the people would know that a religion that contradicts the scientific facts couldn’t be from God. To undermine the impact that the Mathematical Miracle of the Quran would create, Satan tries in so many stupid ways to advertise 19, hoping that the people associate the number with his religion. And therefore, deny them the opportunity to witness one of God's marvelous signs. Satan's scheme has worked on many of the so-called Muslims. For out of ignorance, they think that "19" is a Baha'i number.

 

As for the Baha'is themselves, there are so many good souls who are born into this religion, but do not know much about it. They look at other religions and see that things do not look good. They see divisions, oppression, hatred, mischief, bloodshed and chaos. This comforts them; for it makes them think that they must be with the right religion. But, they do not know that this whole thing is one huge satanic plot. The Quran tells us that Satan duped Adam. But after he asked God for forgiveness, his Lord redeemed him, and guided him (20:122). God's mercy encompasses all things. We must all repent to the Almighty and ask for His forgiveness and guidance.

 

The Quran is the guide (Mehdi) and the leader of the time (Imam Zaman). It propels the limit of our intellectual boundaries and challenges us to cross the self-imposed frontiers and enter into the realm of cerebral freedom. It pictures a human being made of a very base matter, from mud. Then the Lord breathed His spirit into it and the man came into being. Thus, man who was formed from mud and God's spirit is a two-dimensional being; one dimension tends towards mud, lowliness sedimentation, while the other aspires to the loftiest imaginable point possible. Therefore man's significance and grandeur lie in the fact that he possesses two poles (mud and the spirit of the Lord). It is up to man to choose where to go, towards mud or providence.

 

A GREAT PROPHECY

He has sent His messenger with the guidance and true religion,

And will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

9:33; 61:9

 

He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth,

To make it prevail over all other religions.

God suffices as a witness.

48:24

 

In accordance with God's will, the 19-based mathematical miracle of the Quran, "One of the great miracles" 74:35, shall prove to the whole world that the Quran is indeed "A revelation from the Lord of the universe." The purified Quran containing the great mathematical miracles shall find its way into every household. The sincere souls shall receive the message and shall witness the miracle. They shall embrace God's religion in throngs. The religion of Submission, advocating the worship of God alone, shall prevail over all other religions.

 

For He has decreed that the truth shall prevail,
 And the falsehood shall vanish,
in spite of the evildoers.
