We provide hereunder more evidence that the Muhammadan leadership, represented by AL-AZHAR, has rejected the Qur’an, deceived the Muslim masses and duped them into committing the only unforgivable sin, idolatry. This statement written by Dr. Saad Zalaam, Dean of Al-Azhar’s Arabic language College.
Knowing the human tendency to idolize religious leaders, the Qur’an repeatedly emphasizes that the prophets were not infallible:
1. Moses killed a man (28:15),
2. Jonah abandoned his duties (21:87),
3. Muhammad feared the people, instead of fearing God (33:37), worshiped idols before being guided (40:66 & 93:7), and ignored the poor blind man in favor of the rich man (80:1),
4. Abraham asked forgiveness for his idolatrous father (60:4), and defended the evil people of Sodom (11:76),
5. Noah asked God to save his disbelieving son (11:46),
6. Adam ate from the forbidden tree (20:115),
7. Jacob grieved excessively for Joseph (12:84),
8. Solomon was distracted by his horses (38:33), and
9. Joseph sought help from other than God (12:42).
Yet, Al-Azhar is driven by idol-worship to reject these clear teachings.
In his own handwriting Dr. Zalaam [whose name means “darkness”] officially rejects two clear and major doctrines of the Qur’an by:
(1) claiming infallibility for the prophets, and
(2) claiming the power of intercession for prophet Muhammed

The basic Qur’anic law is that, for all practical purposes, there will be NO INTERCESSION on the Day of Judgment. Every human being will go into the Hereafter with the soul’s degree of growth already decided, and irreversible. 2:254, for example, states that THERE WILL BE NO INTERCESSION.
However, everyone in Heaven will wish that his or her beloved ones were in Heaven too; this is “intercession.” If your beloved ones happen to be saved, then your intercession works. Otherwise, your intercession cannot save them. Thus, for all practical purposes, there will be no intercession on the Day of Judgment. Sura 21 informs us that the prophets possess no power to intercede.
