The Ulema The Best Christian
"God never forgives the association (yushraka) of anything besides Him, and He forgives all lesser offences for whomever He wills. Anyone who sets up any associate (yushraka) beside God has forged a gross blasphemy" Surah 4:48.
Indeed those who want to be Muslims and those who want to be successful in this life as well as the hereafter cannot associate anything at all with God. If we do so, then we become "mushriks" or idol worshippers.
But are the ulema free committing "shirk" or associating partners with God? The answer is NO! In the mosques around the "Islamic" world the ulema place the name "Muhammad" beside the name "Allah". In the Saudi Arabian flag they have both God's name and Muhammad's name written in the same line. The ulema say they are merely respecting Muhammad and God when they do this. They say this in their ignorance. Nowhere did God and the Messenger tell us to do any such foolish things.
Instead God and the Messenger told us, "Those who believe in god and His Messenger and make distinction among God and His Messengers and say, "We believe in some and reject some" and try to follow a path in between, these are really disbelievers, and we have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating retribution" 4:150-151.
Hence by "respecting" Muhammad in preference over all the other Messenger that have been sent by God, the ulema are blatantly making distinctions among the Messengers. By doing so they actually "disbelieve in God and His Messenger" (4:150 above). Believing in the Messenger simply means believing the Message, which he brought. If we cannot follow the Message it means we are rejecting the Messenger. Quite simple really.
"As for those who believe in God and His Messengers and make no distinction among any of them, God will recompense them. God is forgiver, merciful" Surah 4:152.
This is where the ulema fail miserably. They will insist on "respecting" Muhammad only and placing only Muhammad's name beside God's name. Thus they make distinctions among the Messengers and become kafirs or disbelievers.
They also become "mushriks" because they insist on placing Muhammad's name on the same level with God. Instead God and the Messenger told us, "When God alone is advocated, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned besides Him, they rejoice" Surah 39:45.
This verse in the Quran accurately describes the ulema. They get very angry and start frothing at the mouth when you say "God alone". They rejoice only when you include other names like Muhammad or Ali or Hassan and Hussein beside God's name alone.
The ulema also encourage their followers to hang up the names of "Allah" or "Muhammad" in Arabic script on their doorframes, walls and on their gates. Their mosques are also adorned with such things. Other ulema encourage their followers to wear Quranic verses on lockets or as amulets around their necks. During the Festival on the 10th of Ashura to commemorate Ali, Hassan, Hussein etc, many shiites bind cloth bands on their foreheads with Arabic script written on them. This somehow helps them work up a "religious frenzy". Many of them actually start frothing at the mouth. It's usually best stay clear of such festivals out of fear of people who blindly follow their creed.
Where did the ulema get these strange ideas to hang up God's name on the wall, Muhammad's name on their doorframes or bind Quranic verses to their forehead? God and the messenger definitely never told us to indulge in such foolish behaviour.
The answer lies in the Christian Bible. The Bible says, "These commandments I give you today are to be worn upon your hearts. Impress them upon your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. TIE THEM AS SYMBOLS ON YOUR HANDS AND BIND THEM ON YOUR FOREHEADS, WRITE THEM ON THE DOORFRAMES OF YOUR HOUSES AND ON YOUR GATES".(Deuteronomy, Chapter 6, verse 6-9).
The ulema have indeed borrowed their mad ideas from the Christian Bible. God and the Messenger never taught us any of these strange rituals. And this is only one among the thousands of pagan rituals, which the ulema have plagiarised from the Christian Bible. Some other falsehoods, which the ulema have plagiarised from the Bible, include forcing women to cover their heads. (1st Corinthians, Chapter 11, verse 3-16).
The ulema's belief in the circumcision of male children is also stolen from the Bible. "This is my covenant with you (Abraham) and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep. Every male among you shall be circumcised" (Genesis, Chapter 17, the Covenant of Circumcision).
To lend some legitimacy to their false teachings about circumcision, the ulema have created a story which says that Abraham circumcised himself with an adzes ( a small axe) at the age of eighty years! Many of their ignorant followers believe the story too.
The strangest things is that the Christians themselves do not follow these pagan teachings any more which are still found written in their Bible. Only the ulema give life to these pagan teachings in their so-called "Islamic" world. Indeed the ulema are the best Christians around today.
