"GOD BEARS WITNESS THAT THE HYPOCRITES ARE LIARS"
If the sole duty of a messenger is to deliver the message (5:99, 16:35, 24:54, 29:18, 42:48, 64:12), would Almighty God take His messenger before the complete message is delivered? Evidently, Mohammedans thought so; this is why they did not take the Quran that came through Prophet Muhammad as the complete message. Consequently, they fell victims to Satan's schemes, invented stories, and made up new religious laws never authorized by God. They attributed their own fabrications to the prophet, and they called them Hadith & Sunna. The writings, that in accordance with the Quran, adherence to them represents flagrant disobedience of God and His messenger.
Although the Quran was sent down all at once, it was released over a long period of time (17:106), twenty three years. The sequence of the revelations, in the text of the Quran, is different with the chronological order of the revelations. As the revelations were released, the suras and the verses were numbered in accordance with divine instructions. Obviously for the prophet and the believers who were involved, this was an exciting project. One can appreciate that due to the circumstances of the time and location much effort was required to keep the awesome program intact. The revelations were revealed over 1400 years ago in Arabian Peninsula. Life was not like we know it today; things were difficult. Believers had to gather the materials needed for the writings. Some had to memorize the revelations to safeguard them against possible acts of sabotage; there were human computers with the revelations saved in their memories. They had to move the documents around to keep them safe and away from the hands of the enemies. The project, "the Quran," was life and many believers lived it.
A short time after the revelation of the sura AI-Nassr, God took the prophet. The believers who were longing for the completion of the project, "the Quran," were shaken up. The prophet was gone, but the Book was not yet collected into its final format. When the prophet was alive things were much easier for the believers. They obeyed the messenger and anxiously followed his directives. Now, in his absence, they were faced with a new situation, a test of their lives.
[29:2,3] Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe, " without being put to the test? We have tested those before them, for God must distinguish those who are truthful, and He must expose the liars.
The truthful ones knew that Prophet Muhammad was a messenger of God. They knew that the only duty of the messenger was to deliver the message. They knew that Almighty God would not take His messenger before the complete message was delivered. Therefore, they were certain that the revelations revealed in twenty three years constituted the complete message. The messenger was gone but the Living Message was delivered for the benefit of mankind for all times. The believers had one responsibility and that was to follow the instructions left by the Prophet and to collect the suras and the verses into the Quran.
[75:17] It is we who will collect it into Quran.
It is God's system; a system that never changes. The enemies of the prophet were given a chance in order to deceive (6:112,113). The hypocrites created a lot of confusion; they spread poison and doubt. Satan's constituents told stories and invented new laws. As if the life of the prophet was snapped short; and, he would have said more if he was to live longer, they fabricated all kinds of lies and attributed them to the prophet. All the praises are due to Almighty God; we have solid proof that with the last Arabic letter of the sura AI-Nassr, the last revelation revealed to the prophet, the Quran was complete and so was the Message.
Hypocrisy is the worst disease and those who are infected with it are the worst enemies of God and the believers. This is why the lowest pit of hell is reserved for them (4:145). Hypocrites were the ones who bore witness that prophet Muhammad was a messenger of God (63:1). They were not believers; they were liars. They had said, "We believe Muhammad is a messenger of God." They had said, "We believe the revelations revealed through him are from God." They had said, "We believe that the only duty of the messenger is to deliver the message." But what did happen when the prophet was gone? Did they take the revelations revealed through the prophet in twenty three years as the complete message? No, they did not! 6346 verses revealed through the final prophet were not enough for them. They did not take the revelations revealed as the complete message. They acted arrogantly. Satan found them easily fulfilling his expectations. Satan's recruits spread poison and doubt. They questioned God's wisdom. As if Muhammad was not given the chance to live long enough to deliver the complete message, they wrote a lot of nonsense and considered them a part of the message. They put their own writings next to the Words from the Almighty God. What a blasphemy! This is why the lowest pit of hell is reserved for them.
All the praises are due to Almighty God. We have solid proof that the Quran is a revelation from the Lord of the Universe. Not that we believe, we know that due to its awesome mathematical composition, the Quran is inimitable; it is far beyond human capability. We know that the Quran confirms and supersedes the previous scriptures (5:48). We know that the Quran is complete and fully detailed (6:114). We know that there is a difference between God's prophet and God's messenger. A prophet is given the scripture and wisdom (Ketaab wa Hekmah) while a messenger confirms and clarifies the truth that has already been revealed through God's prophets (3:81). We know that Muhammad was a messenger of God. But, as far as prophethood is concerned, he was the final prophet (33:40). Therefore, we know that, after the completion of the Quran, the final testament, none of the writings attributed to God is from God; instead, they are Satanic innovations.
[3:78] Among them are those who twist their tongues to imitate the scripture, that you may think it is from the scripture, when it is not from the scripture, and they claim that it is from GOD, when it is not from GOD. Thus, they utter lies and attribute them to GOD, knowingly.
* * * * * *
Spreading doubt and poison is the job of the hypocrites and this is exactly what the new opposition is doing. We have been blessed with the proven words and the authorized translation of the Quran. Messenger of the Covenant, Rashad Khalifa, was commissioned by Almighty God to purify the Quran (42:24) and to explain it (5:19). The process, in accordance with God's will was to be gradual. Therefore, he was to go through the translation and the review of the Quran three times. The third time, however, after the completion of his review of sura 49, God took him. Naturally, the believers who were anxiously awaiting the completion of the third edition were shaken up. The messenger was gone, but the third edition of the authorized translation was not yet completed. Those who were truthful, the ones who had truly understood the message of "Worshiping God Alone," had their confidence in God. They were certain that Almighty God would not take His messenger unless the complete message was delivered. The believers had one responsibility and that was to follow the instructions left by the messenger and complete the revision.
It is God's system; a system that never changes. The hypocrites must drop out.
[22:52,53] We did not send before you any messenger, nor a prophet, without having the devil interfere in his wishes. God then nullifies what the devil has done. God perfects His revelations. God is Omniscient, Most Wise. He thus sets up the devil's scheme as a test for those who harbor doubts in their hearts, and those whose hearts are hardened. The wicked must remain with the opposition.
The hypocrites really think that they are believers. By the very nature of being a hypocrite they are liars. Before telling lies to others, they tell lies to themselves. The worst part of it is that they believe their own lies. "They only deceive themselves without perceiving.” Almighty God is telling us that the hypocrites are fake and their job is to spread poison and doubt.
[63:2] "Under the guise of their apparent faith, they repel the people from the path of God. Miserable indeed is what they do.
Almighty God teaches us the easiest way to recognize them.
[63:3] This is because they believed, then disbelieved. Hence, their minds are blocked; they do not understand.
Edip Yuksel is one of the editors of Submitters Perspective published by Masjid Tucson. Unfortunately, he is exerting wrong influences. Wasn't he the one who witnessed that the root word for Rashad, "Rashada," occurs in the Quran 19 times? Didn't he say that he believed that Rashad Khalifa was God's messenger? If he was telling the truth then, why is he opposing the authorized translation of the Quran now? The statement, "Authorized English Version," was on the cover of the two translations completed by Rashad. Didn't he agree with the statement? It is hypocritical to say that one believes in the messenger and disbelieves in the message, or vice-versa. Didn't he believe that one of the duties of the Messenger of the Covenant was to deliver the purified Quran? Didn't he believe that God, our Creator, authorized Rashad Khalifa to deliver the proof of authenticity of the Quran? Didn't he believe that Almighty God gave him the knowledge to explain things for us (5:19)? Has he changed his mind now? The translation done through God's messenger with God's authorization is not good enough for him? Has he disbelieved after he had believed or was he a liar to begin with? He claims that he knows Arabic language and he knows the Quran. Where in the Quran has he come across a verse saying that a messenger delivered a wrong or incomplete message; and, later, another person was needed to come to make corrections? Is his mind blocked? Doesn't he understand that he is committing a gross blasphemy? Is he questioning God's wisdom? Woe to him and those who are his followers for they have deviated a great deviation!
[63:4] When you see them, you may be impressed by their looks. And when they speak, you may listen to their eloquence. They are like standing logs. They think that every call is intended against them. They are the real enemies; beware of them. God condemns them; they have deviated.
Almighty God is warning us. He is pointing to us that we are making mistakes. The signs shown are to awaken the believers who are about losing the truth. The mistakes made in the Submitters Perspective, published by Masjid Tucson, should open the eyes of those who still can see. The latest mistake is in the last page of August issue. Brother Abdullah Arik wonders about the ignorance of the so-called Muslim scholars and writes: "How can we expect them to agree on something that needs adding or counting verses while they cannot even count the 19 letters of the Basmalah?" In the same page, about the sura AI-Nassr, sura 110, he himself writes: "We know that this sura consists of 76 (19 x 4) Arabic words." Where did you get this information? If you couldn't count the Arabic words, you certainly could read the footnote. Have you decided that the footnotes written by God's messenger are not part of the authorized translation of the Quran? Footnote means additional information which is to be right before our eyes for easy access. The footnote reads: "This last sura, chronologically, consists of 19 Arabic words." Don't you agree that the mistake could be avoided, if you had read the footnote? The authorized translation of the Quran is a gift from Almighty God. Brothers and sisters do not become unappreciative of God's blessings; and, do not sell God's revelations for a cheap price.
CERTAINTY VS DOUBT
If we truly worship GOD ALONE; worship Him with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength; He blesses us with the gift of certainty. He takes us out of darkness and guides us to the light. With God's light we become seers. We become certain about His revelations (32:24); we become certain about His laws (5:50); and, we become absolutely certain about the Hereafter (2:4, 27:3, 31:4).
[15:99] And worship your Lord, in order to attain certainty.
15 + 99 = 114 = 19 x 6
If we add 1599, representing the above verse, with 1365, its gematrical value, we get:
1599 + 1365 =
GOD BE GLORIFIED
When we worship GOD ALONE, we attain certainty. By God's leave, we witness the truth. How about those who are becoming less and less certain? Are they worshipping GOD ALONE? Are they asking the Most Gracious, The Teacher of the Quran, to increase their knowledge (20:114)? Or, have they decided that they need other teachers? What about the self opinionated personalities who spread poison and doubt? Are they God's servants? Or, are they serving the accursed Satan? In the light of the Quran, with God's help, it is easy for the sincere ones to recognize the truth.
[3:86] Why should God guide people who disbelieved after believing, and after witnessing that the messenger is truth, and after solid proofs have been given to them? God does not guide the wicked.
THE SMOKE: A MAJOR
PROPHECY WAS FULFILLED IN KUWAIT IN 1991
[3:179] GOD is not to leave the believers as you are, without distinguishing the bad from the good. Nor does GOD inform you of the future, but GOD bestows such knowledge upon whomever He chooses from among His messengers. Therefore, you shall believe in GOD and His messengers. If you believe and lead a righteous life, you receive a great recompense.
Dr. Rashad Khalifa, Messenger of the Covenant, who was assassinated on January 31,1990, in the last copy of SUBMITTERS PERSPECTIVE edited by him, [No. 63] made the following announcement:
“MARK MY WORDS: HERE IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE DISBELIEVERS; As prophesied in 44:9-15:
Obviously Middle East was not struck by an asteroid nor a comet. A few of the believers, including myself, had become fully convinced that Comet Austin was going to strike the heart of the disbelievers on May 19, 1990. We had made a mistake. The messenger himself had said that he did not know the exact time. However, May 19th turned out to be a day of a big test for the believers; a day to distinguish the ones who did not waver and those who had found an excuse to go stray. If an asteroid or a comet had struck the Middle East, two things would have happened:
1) Great majority, including those who were not worthy of it, would have believed; and
2) Many innocent people on earth along with so many other creatures would have suffered. God's retribution was to be directed to the criminals.
[6:65] Say, "He is certainly able to pour upon you retribution from above you, or from beneath your feet. Or He can divide you into factions and have you taste each other's tyranny. Note how we explain the revelations, that they may understand.'"
665 = 19 x 35
The Sabah family, Saddam Hussein, and George Bush, basically of the same fabric, were destined to be the ingredients to create the biggest and the most publicized showdown in human history; Mother of All The Battles! By God's leave, the fulfillment of the prophecy was put in motion. On August 2, 1990, Saddam Hussein who had committed his first murder at the age of 19 (Geraldo, March 1, 1991) invaded Kuwait. After annexation of Kuwait, Saddam called it "The 19th province." At the beginning of the conflict, George Bush expelled some of the Iraqi diplomats in Washington and reduced their number to 19. Saddam retaliated by reducing the number of the American diplomats in Baghdad to 19. In December 1990, the U.S. delegation that went to the war-zone to investigate the situation was comprised of 19 U.S. citizens. Senator Joseph Biden Jr., in his speech in the congress, mentioned that the United States had already launched 208 offensives against foreign forces. Therefore, the military action against Saddam was the number 209, (19 x 11). From the beginning of the offensive to the beginning of the ground war lead by the so-called coalition forces took 38 days (19 x 2). CNN was instrumental in showing the fulfillment of the prophecy before the eyes of the millions. The fulfillment of a prophecy which is recorded on the tape. Stars (different kinds of missiles) were falling and creating devastating effects. The collective tonnage of explosives dropped or aimed at different targets is beyond imagination. The number of the casualties, the size of the destruction over miles of territories, and the long-term effect of the confrontation is yet to be understood. On January 22, 1991 corresponding with Rajab 7, 1411, in lunar calendar, the first oil well in Kuwait was set aflame by Saddam's forces. Hundreds of oil wells were sabotaged; a hell was ignited and A Profound Smoke rose.
1 + 22 + 1991 = 2014 = 19 x 106
7 + 7 + 1411 = 1425 = 19 x 75
[44:10] 'Therefore, watch for the day when the sky brings a profound smoke.
This prophecy (4410) was fulfilled in (1991) in Kuwait, [Kuwait is made of four Arabic letters: K,V,I, and T. The gematrical value of the four letters are: 20, 6, 10, and 400. Adding the values of the four letters, we get: (436)]. If we place the three numbers side by side, we get:
4410,1991,436 = 19 x 2321157444
The prophecy (4410) was fulfilled in Kuwait (20,6,10,400). If we add the two numbers, we get:
4410 + 20610400 = 20614810 = 19 x 1084990
[Matthew 24:27] For as the light comes out of the east, and shines unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[24:28] For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
[24:29] Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
[24:30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven."
The above four verses are vividly descriptive of what exactly took place. God sent His Messenger of the Covenant, Rashad Khalifa, from the East to the West. Rashad Khalifa was born in Egypt but his body was destined to lay dead in the United States where the brass eagles shine on the flags. Arabs, the number one enemy of God, His miracle, and His messenger, plotted to kill him. They earned their sin and deserved their punishment. The Middle East war centering around Kuwait was God's retribution and the profound smoke was the sign of the Son of man. Matthew 24:30 talks about the sign of the Son of man in heaven. This sign is the Smoke prophesied in 44:10 in the Quran. In each of the two prophesies. If we add the chapter number and the verse number together, we see:
24 + 30 = 54
44 + 10 = 54
God's Messenger of the Covenant was 54 years old when he was assassinated. Furthermore, if we add the two numbers connected with the two prophesies, we get:
2430 + 4410 = 6840 = 19 x 360
[44:13] Now that it is too late, they remember! An enlightening messenger had come to them.
If we add 4413 with the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa (505,725), we get:
4413 + 505 + 725 = 5643 = 19 x 297
If we place 4413 and the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa (505,725) side by side, we get
GOD IS GLORIFIED
