Believers Are United

“You shall hold fast to the rope of God, all of you

And do not be divided.”

3:103

 

 

[25:1] “Most blessed is the One who revealed the Statute Book to His servant, so he can serve as a warner to the whole world.”

 

If the warnings in the Quran were to be communicated to the whole world in the Arabic language, would they do much good? The fortunate, few, were going to be the sincere (56:79) among those who knew the Arabic language. They would be the only ones to heed the warnings. At this time, there are more than six billion humans living on earth. How many from among the human population would fit into the above description? Obviously, not many (9:97) would. It is God's will that many among all the people on earth benefit from the teachings of the Quran. Therefore, it is His will that the Quran must be translated (26:198,199).

The Quran has been translated in so many different languages.  If the translations done so far were accurate and true to the word of God, we as Muslims, worldwide, would have been in a better shape. It is evident from the existing disarray among the Muslim nations that there has been prevailing ignorance in regard to the true teachings of the Quran. God's message has not been conveyed. The Quran has either been recited in Arabic, a foreign tongue to most of the Muslims. Or, it has been conveyed through translations influenced by the prejudices of their translators. Parroting the sounds without understanding, and more importantly, getting the wrong messages through the wrong translations have contributed to the confusion of the Muslim masses.

Despite God's clear command in the Quran that we must not be divided into sects (6:159, 30, 32), we are torn into pieces. We as Muslims either have not gotten the message, or we have decided to defy God's command. How could we call ourselves Muslims, Submitters to God alone, and disobey His command at the same time? How could we be Muslims and other things all at once? The contributing factors towards the mass confusion among the Muslim populace are: (1) the lack of knowledge or appreciation for the message of "Worship God alone" (3:18; 39:2,3, 45; 72:18; 98:5), and (2) the lack of knowledge or appreciation for the message of "The Quran alone" as the only source of religious guidance (6:19, 114; 39:23; 34:44). All the praises are due to Almighty God. The above messages, in a most clear way, are conveyed through a translation of the Quran that carries God's authorization. This is the heart of THE MESSAGE: only those who truly rise above human factor, devote their worship absolutely to God alone, uphold the Quran as the only source of religious guidance, and do not accept additional sources (12:111; 31:6; 45:6) beside it shall be saved!

 

WHY DISTORT THE MESSAGE?

God's guidance is the truth, and He sends the truth through His messengers. What does come after the truth but falsehood? The believers are reminded that the Arabic Quran in conjunction with its Authorized Translation is THE BOOK (34:44; 39:23). THE BOOK that conveys the true meanings of the verses of the Quran and thus, it is the only source for our religious guidance. The footnotes and appendices are explanations given by God's Messenger (5:19) and the expression of his opinion (49:1). There are some human devils among us who are averse to this reminder. These human devils in collaboration with Satan's messengers do anything to undermine God's work done through His Messenger of the Covenant. So far, for every argument they have come up with. God has provided us with the truth, and a better understanding (25:33). Praise be to God, Lord of the universe.

The translation of the Quran by the Messenger of the Covenant is not a new revelation. It is simply an Authorized Translation of the Final Testament. It is the manifestation of the Quran's proven words and clear revelations. This Quran, the Arabic Quran together with its Authorized Translation, is the highly publicized 666 that has frightened the corrupted Pauline church. It is this Quran that shall, God willing, find its place in every household. It is this Quran that shall, God willing, spread His light throughout the whole world. Obviously Satan is fighting back. He has sent his messengers to distort the truth that is reflected in this Quran. It is ironic that many among the human devils (6:112) who have risen in opposition and seek to distort the Authorized Translation, are among the early witnesses (3:99). They are doing their best to “Bring a Quran other than this, or change it” (10:15), the wrath of God is upon Satan! 

 

WHY WORSHIP THE MESSENGER?

INDEED, YOU BEAR WITNESS THAT THERE ARE OTHER SOURCES OF RELIGIOUS GUIDANCE BESIDE THE QURAN. I DO NOT TESTIFY AS YOU DO; THERE IS ONLY ONE SOURCE, THE QURAN ALONE, AND I DISOWN YOUR IDOLATRY (6:19). The above is how God's Messenger of the Covenant understood the verse. In the footnote he wrote: "This verse proclaims the Quran as the only source of religious guidance. Those who uphold additional sources, such as Hadith & Sunna (lies attributed to the prophet), are defined as idolaters." God commands us in the Quran to utter our Contact Prayers in a moderate tone (17:110). Those who utter part of their Contact Prayers secretly are upholding additional sources beside the Quran. Therefore, they are committing an act of idol worship (4:48,116).

Inevitably, there are going to be some among us, if not already, who would idolize Rashad Khalifa against his will. The irony is that this act of idol worship should start with the people who were close to the messenger (3:99,101), the people who were warned by the messenger himself about the grossness of the act of idol worship and the grievous consequences thereof. If we tell these people, "God commands us to utter our Contact Prayers in a moderate tone." They say, "Are you mocking us (2:67)?" But, we are following the messenger! Are they really following the messenger? Can they show us that part of the message delivered by the messenger that says, while performing our Salat, we must utter the Shahaadah and the words of glorification secretly? Are they upholding an additional source beside the Quran for their religious guidance? Are they worshiping another god beside God? Like their previous counterparts (2:68-70), they will try to come up with all kinds of excuses to disobey God's command. They will even question the integrity of the Salat. What part of the Salat is Salat anyway? Isn't the Salat just the Al-Fatehah, perhaps? These people will be more apt to dismember the Salat rather than obeying God's command in the Quran. They would rather discard the Shahaadah, the bowing, and the prostration, than uttering the specified words in a moderate tone.

[10:17] “Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about God. Or reject His revelations? Certainly, the transgressors never succeed.”

[57:16] “Is it not time for those who believed to open up their hearts for god's message, and the truth that is revealed herein? They should not be like the followers of previous scriptures whose hearts became hardened with time and, consequently, many of them turned wicked.”

The Arabic Quran together with its Authorized Translation is the ultimate gift from the Almighty to the sincere believers. God's proven words and the clear messages are contained within the frame of this Quran. The Quran that is complete and fully detailed and nothing is left out it. The only duty of prophet Muhammad was to deliver it, and the only duty of Rashad Khalifa was to translate it in accordance with God's authorization. God's messengers and the witnesses are commanded to preach in accordance with the teachings of this Quran. It is in this Quran that we read God's command: “You shall not utter your Contact Prayers (Salat) too loudly, nor secretly; use a moderate tone.” The gematrical value of this command, (6, 30, 1, 400, 3, 5, 200, 2, 90, 30, 1, 400, 20, 6, 30, 1, 400, 600, 1, 80, 400, 2, 5, 1, 6, 1, 2, 400, 1000, 2, 10, 50, 700, 30, 20, 60, 2, 10, 30, 1), is 5038.

 

In Sura 17, verse 110, our Creator gives us a command (G.V. 5038) concerning the tone of the 5 Contact Prayers, the 17 units that we perform daily. Let us add the above numbers:
 

17 + 110 + 5038 + 5 + 17 = 5187

19 x 273

Incredibly, if we place the above numbers side by side, we get a number that again is a multiple of nineteen.

GOD IS GLORIFIED!

There are six parts in our daily Contact Prayers. With the utterance of "Allahu Akbar" (G.V. 289), we establish contact with our Creator. As we go through the motions to change our positions in the Salat, with saying the same words, "Allahu Akbar." we constantly magnify our Lord. We recite "The Key," "Al-Fatehah." The gematrical value of this Sura is 10143. We proclaim our Shahaadah, "Ash'hadu An La Elaaha Ella Allah. Wah'dahu La Shareeka Lah," (G.V. 1145).  We bow to our Creator and with the utterance of "Sob'haana Rabbial Azeem" (G.V. 1383), we glorify Him. We glorify Him also while in prostration, and say, "Sob'haana Rabbial A'alaa," (G.V. 474). We end our Contact Prayers by uttering "Salamun `Alaykum" (G.V. 300) as we look to the right and saying the same as we look to the left. The gematrical value of God's command concerning the tone of the Contact Prayers is 5038. God's command in the Quran conveyed through His messenger of the Covenant is that the moderate tone is to be maintained throughout the Salat. Let us add the above numbers:
 

289 +10143 + 1145 + 1383 + 474 + 300 + 5038 = 18772

19 x 19 x 52
 

Praise be God, Lord of the Universe.
 

 

This proof authenticates every word we utter in our daily Contact Prayers. Every single letter is accounted for. Glory is to God, the calculations just presented provide us with yet another solid proof that the statement "Sami' Allahu Liman Hamidah" (G.V. 413) does not belong with the Salat. Adding 413 to our calculation throws off the awesome signature.

The tone of the Contact Prayers (Salat) is pointed out to us by the Messenger of the Covenant in Sura 17, verse 110. We pray 5 times a day in which we perform 17 units. This is God’s command. We must utter our Contact Prayers in a moderate tone. God has placed His signature over this commandment. If we add (17,110) for the sura and the verse, (5,17) for the daily Contact Prayers and the number of the units, and (1221), the gematrical value of “Over it is nineteen,” we get:
 

17110 + 517 + 1221 = 18848

19 x 992
 

All the praises are due to Almighty God. It is in accordance with His will that I, Keikhosrow Emami (896,92) witness the truth concerning the tone (G.V. 5038) of our daily Contact Prayers (5,17) and report it to the believers. Adding the above numbers, we get:
 

89692 + 5038 + 517= 95247

19 x 5013
 

It is in accordance with God's will that I (896,92) witness the truth concerning the tone of the daily Contact Prayers reflected in (17:110) and report it to the believers. There are six parts in our daily Contact Prayers. The G. Value of the six parts as described earlier are: 289, 10143, 1145, 1383, 474, and 300. Let us add the above numbers:
 

89692 + 17110 + 289 + 10143 + 1145 + 1383 + 474 + 300 = 120536

19 x 6344

(6+3+4+4=17 units)

ALLAHU AKBAR


Rashad Khalifa (G.V.
505,725), the Messenger of the Covenant, conveyed God's command concerning the tone of the Contact Prayers within the frame of this Quran (G.V. 5038). It is God's will that I (G.V. 896,92) report to the believers that only the information reflected within the frame of this Quran (The Arabic Quran together with its Authorized Translation) constitute God's MESSAGE. Thus, those who obey God and obey His messenger shall, God willing, utter their Contact Prayers in a moderate tone. Let us place the above three numbers side by side:

GOD BE GLORIFIED


[6:115] “The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.”

[20:2] “We did not reveal the Quran to you to cause you any hardship.”

[17:9] “This Quran guides to the best path, and brings good news to the believers who lead a righteous life, that they have deserved a great recompense.”

[34:44] “We did not give them any other books to study, nor did we send to them before you another warner.” (U.U. No. 23)

[54:17, 22, 32, 40] “We made the Quran easy to team. Does any of you wish to learn?

This Quran is God's words; it supersedes all the others. Following the Quran alone makes our lives easy. This Quran guides to the best path. It is the only book for our religious guidance. It is complete and fully detailed. And it is easy to learn.

 

(December 30th: The First Day of Ramadan – January 28th: The Last Day of Fasting)

 

WHAT ELSE DO WE NEED?

We have got the Quran. We have got THE MESSAGE. Let us hold fast to the rope of God. Our eternal salvation depends on it.

[39:53] Proclaim: “O My servants who exceeded the limits, never despair of God's mercy. For He forgives all sins. He is the Forgiver, Most Merciful.”

Footnote: 6:113-115 (Authorized Translation) "Upholding any source beside the Quran reflects disbelief in the Quran."  Footnote: 6:38 "All information relevant to our eternal life of the Hereafter is contained in the Quran. The true believers accept, without hesitation. God's assertion: “We did not leave anything out of this book.” The Quran is complete and fully detailed. We do not need any other source beside it. The believers are urged to read the following verses very carefully: (6:38,114,115; 12:111; 17:41,89; 18:27, 54; 30:58; 31:27). This Quran is the only book for our religious guidance!

 

[28:85] Surely, the One who decreed the Quran for you will summon you to a predetermined appointment. Say, “My Lord is fully aware of those who uphold the guidance, and those who have gone astray.”

God says, “He has revealed to you this book fully detailed.” God says, “We did not leave anything out of this book.”  What would be the consequences for those who disbelieve in God's assertions and uphold additional sources beside the Quran? If we look for some information in the Quran and do not find it, it does not mean that the information is not in the Quran. The fact is that we are unable to find it. Either we are not equipped with the eyes of certainty, or it is not time for the information to be revealed. Muhammadans argue, "If the Quran is complete and fully detailed, where do we find the details about the Salat?" Indeed, the details of our daily Contact Prayers are reflected within the verses of the Quran. But only the sincere that have appreciation for the mathematical miracle of the Quran are able to find the details. Joseph was taught the interpretation of dreams (12:21). Solomon and his people were endowed with understanding the language of the birds (27:16). Glory is to God. In accordance with His will, our generation is endowed with understanding the mathematical language of the Quran.

The 1st sura in the Quran, "The Key," "AI-Fatehah," has 7 verses. Placing the sura number and the number of the verses side by side, we get 17.  17 is the number of the units of the Contact Prayers we perform daily.  From the seven verses in this sura, there are four verses for which the verse numbers are prime numbers. These verses are: 2, 3, 5, and 7. Glory is to God, if we add the four verse numbers, we get 17 again. This sura is the only sura in the Quran that number "1" is assigned to its "Basmalah," the opening statement. If this was not the case, instead of 7, we would end up having 6 numbered verses in the sura. Then 16 would become the outcome of the concatenation of the sura number and the number of the verses. The sum of the verse numbers for which the verse numbers are
prime numbers (2+3+5) would, then, be 10.  Everything in this Quran is Divine. There are so many awesome mathematical proofs related to the "AI-Fatehah " that is mind-boggling. All proving that the "AI-Fatehah" is the only sura to be recited in the 17 units we perform daily.

God's command concerning the tone of the Salat (17:110) is straightforward. The gematrical value of God's command is 5038. There are six parts in our daily Contact Prayers. We must utter Allahu Akbar in a moderate tone (289,5038). We must recite the AI-Fatehah in a moderate tone (10143,5038). We must proclaim the Shahaadah in a moderate tone (1145,5038). We must say Sob'haana Rabbial Azeem in a moderate tone (1383,5038). We must say Sob'haana Rabbial A'alaa in a moderate tone (474,5038). To end our Salat, we must say Salaamun Alaikum in a moderate tone (300,5038). Let us add the above six numbers:
 

289,5038 + 10143,5038 + 1145,5038 + 1383,5038 + 474,5038 + 300,5038 = 137370228

GOD BE GLORIFIED
 

Those who disobey God's command and utter part of their Salat secretly, will never be able to understand why "Sami'Allahu liman Hamidah" does not belong with the Salat. In Sura 17, verse 111, our Creator commands us to “Magnify Him constantly.” Glory is to God; the placement of the command in 17:111 is deliberate. The Quran is telling us that in the 17 units of the prayers that we perform daily, we must 111 times magnify our Lord. The words of magnification are "Allahu Akbar."  (U.U. No.31-34)

 

Our brother, Azhar Khan, has witnessed that 111 is occurred in the Quran 17 times. Coincidence? There are (16) suras in the Quran with 111 or more verses. And there is (1) sura number, Sura 111. It is interesting to note that the 17th occurrence of 111 takes us to a sura with only 5 verses. PRAISE BE TO GOD, LORD OF THE UNIVERSE!
