Quranic Verses about Faith and Reflection

Alif, Lam, Meem. This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah - Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them, And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.

Surat Al-Baqarah verses 1 - 5

This call for the love of God is strongly emphasised in the Quran as well in 2:165:

"Yet, some people set up idols to rival God, and love them as if they are God. Those who believe love God the most"

In fact, an act of idol worship, let alone one deliberately persisted in, is simply not forgivable; God tells us unequivocally so at chapter 4, An-Nisaa", verse 48, in part,

"God does not forgive that partners be ascribed to Him, but He will forgive lesser offences for whom He will ....."

And again, in almost the same terms, at verse 116 of the same chapter. And since God did not qualify His statements, the question of intent becomes irrelevant.

It must therefore be stressed that good intentions, where idol worship is concerned are useless and will not save the perpetrator on the Day of Reckoning. On that day, the idol worshipers will deny in vain that they ever committed idol worship, the words of the Quran testify to this truth in 6:22-24:

"On the day when We summon them all, We will ask the idol worshipers, "Where are the idols you set up?" Their disastrous response will be, "By God our Lord, we were not idol worshipers." Note how they lied to themselves, and how the idols they had invented have abandoned them"

In conclusion, we feel that we have, with the help of Almighty God, presented sufficient evidence to convince any fair minded, unbiased person, beyond reasonable doubt, of the truth of this matter. The second testimony of Faith is nothing but unsubstantiated claims openly discriminating in favour of the prophet Muhammad and that uttering it, as a testimony of faith, is contrary to the teachings of the Quran. Our arguments all come from within the Quran; we have not resorted to any external source for evidence.

God Alone is indeed sufficient for these, His humble servants. Praise be to God.
