The top “Muslim Scholars,” including Sheikh Al-Azhar, Mecca’s Imam, etc. met in Chicago October 7 & 8 to discuss “Finality of Prophethood, and the significance of Hadith.” Their objective is stated in the Quran: to distort the word of God, and confuse the Muslim masses with regard to the definitions of “Prophet” (Nabi) and “Messenger” (Rasool) [5:41].
They have set up their religious leaders & scholars as gods instead of God. 9:31
No one disputes the fact that Muhammad was God’s final prophet. The definitions of “Prophet” (Nabi) and “Messenger” (Rasool) are very clearly stated by Almighty God in the Quran, 3:81:
Thus, a prophet is given a scripture to deliver. Simple enough?
Thus, clearly a messenger (Rasool) confirms existing scripture; he does not bring a new scripture.
THE BIG LIE
Another objective of the “Muslim Scholars” is to distort the word of God and fool the Muslims by telling them that the Prophet Muhammad was not only the final prophet (Nabi), but also the final messenger (Rasool). Are we going to believe God and his final prophet, or shall we believe Muslim Scholars?”
WHO DO YOU BELIEVE?
God tells us, through His final prophet, that Muhammad was the final prophet, but NOT the final messenger:
If the “Final Prophet” also means the “Final Messenger” as they would like us to believe, why did God describe Muhammad as “a messenger of God (Rasool Allah), and the final prophet??!! It would have been sufficient to describe him as “the final prophet.” No where in the Quran do we see “the final messenger” (Khatum Al-Mursaleen).
THE FRIGHTENED SCHOLARS
Just like the Jewish scholars who opposed Jesus, and the Christian scholars who opposed Muhammad, the Muslim scholars are opposing the Quran. They are afraid of the inevitable appearance of God’s Messenger of the Covenant, clearly prophesied in the Quran 3:81 and 33:7. But God’s truth shall overtake the world.
WHO IS YOUR GOD?
The Quran warns us against worshiping our scholars instead of God:
How would we worship the scholars instead of God? By choosing the scholars’ opinion instead of God’s truth.
THE TRUTH IS CLEAR AND
FALSEHOOD IS CLEAR
THEY FIGHT GOD’S MIRACLE!
God Himself has stated in 74:25-35 that the number “19” will prove to the world that the Quran is God’s message to the world. Ask the “Muslim Scholars,” why do they fight God’s 19-based miracle so ferociously??!!
No one questions the fact that the Prophet Muhammad was the final prophet (Nabi) [33:40]. But the Quran, God’s word that came to us through the Prophet Muhammad, clearly tells us that Muhammad was NOT the final messenger (Rasool). Another major distortion the top “Muslim Scholars” are trying to jam down the throats of Muslims is THE BIG LIE, that the Prophet Muhammad was also the final messenger.
(Message from Ahmad Wehbe)
Peace be upon you,
These so called “Muslim” scholars will argue and tell you that you have to read the Quran in Arabic, yet we see here how Rashad Khalifa exposes their ignorance of the Arabic Quran.
The truth of the matter is that they don’t really read the Arabic Quran themselves, they use external sources called “tafseers”, an Arabic word for “explanations”.
The irony here is that they say: YOU HAVE TO READ QURAN IN ARABIC TO UNDERSTAND IT, yet, they themselves go to external sources to derive their understanding of the Quran.
For example, the Quran clearly says there will be another messenger that will come to confirm the Quran. And that Muhammad is the final prophet, not the final messenger. Yet they choose to follow the twisted explanations of the previous scholars, insisting on going against the Quranic facts before their eyes IN ARABIC.
Thank you and GOD bless.
