Idolatry among those claim to worship God
By AZHAR KHAN
Published: NOV 22, 2019
The Quran commands us to worship God alone (39:45). We worship God alone by upholding God’s complete words in the Quran alone (17:46). The traditional Muslims associate Muhammad with God while the Christians associate Jesus with God. Some who claim to worship God alone fail the test of no association with God.
REDEFINING QURAN AND HADITH
Since the Messenger's passing the definitions of the 'Quran' and 'hadith' have
evolved. They no longer reflect the original meaning God has defined in the
miracle-containing Quran. The meaning of the 'Quran' has been EXPANDED to
include material outside the 114 suras..
DESERTION OF THE QURAN
They do not uphold the Arabic Quran nor the translated verses of the Arabic
Quran. And the irony here is that they have chosen not to uphold right after
God’s revelation of the miracle of the Quran providing proof that each word of
Arabic Quran is a Proven Word of God.
AT ODDS BELIEFS OF SOME SUBMITTERS
Those who call themselves Submitters have differences of beliefs. This is to
be expected since we are human. Differences can be traced to the core beliefs of
an individual submitter.
THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE HADITH
Those who cannot accept the completeness of the Quran as a source of law seek
to add-on to the Quran. They also seek to limit the word Hadith to the
attributed sayings of Prophet Muhammad, which is contrary to the Quran. The
Quran considers Hadith much more expansive than the attributed sayings of
The following phrases are used for Dr. Rashad Khalifa words by those who
cannot get themselves to believe God in 6:114-115 that God’s words in the Quran
are complete, fully detailed and the only source of law. Some cannot even define
what they mean when they use the word Quran.
SUPPORTING A POINT OF VIEW FROM THE QURAN
Can you support your point of view by god’s words in the Quran?
Unfortunately, only some submitters adhere to the above, even though the Quran
and God’s messenger are clear and explicit about the above.
KHALIFA ON THE QURAN ALONE
“We follow God. We follow the word of God alone. The principle is very easy –
if it is not in the Quran, we have no consideration for it.
…your criteria is
the Quran. If it is not in the Quran don’t believe it, no matter who is talking
to you. It is a very simple principle. This is what we follow.
But you must
be aware of this principle. It is our principle – if it is not in the Quran, I
don’t believe it. It may or may not be correct, but if it is not in the Quran, I
am not following it.”-
REVERSION TO IDOLATRY
In three decades after the death of the Messenger of the Covenant a reversion
to idolatry is complete. Like before, the idol is the messenger whose message
was – worship God alone by upholding the Quran alone. The reversion to idolatry
goes hand in hand with the rejection of the Quran as perfect, complete, fully
detailed and the only source of law
THE RELIGION OF AUDIO/VIDEO TAPES
In just two decades after the Prophet's death, the idol worshipers who
were defeated by the Prophet in the conquest of Mecca (632 AD) reverted to
idolatry. Ironically, this time around their idol was the Prophet himself. Such
idol worshipers obviously did not deserve to possess the pure Quran.

The Quran is clear about tests. Anyone who claims to be a submitter will be
tested. ‘Admission test’ is not mentioned in the Quran. However, the Quran gives
two examples of an admittance test (You are admitted – you are in). One is to
test an orphan in 4:6 and the
other believing woman seeking asylum during war.
