Thus, we may sow to harvest in the Hereafter upholding the given scripture and religion accepting God as our deity, Lord and Protector to have far better and everlasting reward with Him as promised for those who have put trust in their Lord, and have believed and done the righteous deeds considering the worldly life a temporary enjoyment (17:9, 42:20 & 42:36):
[17:9] Indeed, this Quran guides to that which is most straight and gives good news to the believers those who do the righteous deeds that for them, there is a great reward.
[42:20] Whoever has done desiring harvest of the Hereafter, we increase for him in his harvest, and whoever has done desiring harvest of the world, we give him of it but for him there is no share in the Hereafter.
[42:36] So whatever of a thing you are given is a temporary enjoyment for the life of the world while what is with God is far better and everlasting for those who have believed and have put trust in their Lord.
Islam is a progressive religion of God that dates back to the age of Adam and its message has been conveyed to humanity by God’s prophets and messengers (21:2, 42:13). It cannot be trapped in time and place nor can it be associated with any particular prophets and messengers, and has been made it prevail over any other religions (9:33, 48:29, 61:9) while messengers are sent with the clear proofs, the scripture and the balance that people may establish with the justice (57:25):
[21:2] Not of a reminder comes to them from their Lord, is new, except that they listen to it while they pay no attention.
[42:13] He decreed for all of you the religion what He enjoined for Noah, and what we inspired to you (Muhammad), and what we enjoined for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. That you shall uphold the religion, and you are not to divide in it, is difficult for the idolaters what you (Muhammad) call them to it. God chooses to Himself whomever He wills and He guides to Himself whoever turns.
[9:33] He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion that He would make it prevail over the religion of any of it, even if the idol worshipers dislike (it).
[48:28] He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion that He would make it prevail over the religion of any of it. And God has sufficed as a Witness.
[61:9] He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion that He would make it prevail over the religion of any of it, even though the disbelievers dislike (it).
[57:25] Certainly, we sent our messengers with the clear proofs and we sent down with them the scripture and the balance that the people may establish with the justice. And we sent down the iron, wherein there is substantial strength and benefits for the people, and that God may know those who support Him and His messengers in the unseen as God is Powerful, Mighty.
God has sent down messages from time to time through His prophets and messengers to guide the humanity to the right path even destroying the disbelieving people making history (23:44, 35:32). Thus, humanity has passed through numerous periods of guidance as required for its misguidance, disgrace, and deviation, from the most primitive age to the heights of civilization:
[23:44] Then we sent our messengers in succession. Every time its messenger came to a community, they denied him. So we made them follow one another, and we made them history. So away is for a people who do not believe!
[35:32] Then we made to inherit the scripture to those whom we have chosen of our servants while among them who wrongs himself, among them who is moderate and among them who is foremost in good deeds by God’s permission. That is the great blessing.
However, divine guidance accompanied humanity through all of this, always providing the appropriate solutions and remedies. Then people of all periods of guidance were to believe in God, recognize and uphold His words to fulfill the following three requirements to receive their recompense from their Lord: (1) believed in God, (2) in the Last Day, and (3) did as righteous. Thus, the Quran being the confirming and consolidating scripture (3:3, 5:48) as well as the final edition of God’s scripture (33:40) teaches us that those who have fulfilled those requirements are the righteous (al-saaliheen in Arabic) in the eye of God regardless of periods of guidance and even, it doesn’t matter what they called their religion or the communities (2:62, 5:69, 22:17):
[3:3] He revealed through you (Muhammad) the scripture with the truth, is confirming that what was of its past; and He sent down the Torah and the Injeel.
[5:48] And we have revealed to you (Muhammad) the scripture with the truth, is a confirming of the scripture what was of its past and is a consolidating with it. So, you shall judge between them with what God has revealed, and you should not follow their desires as the truth has come to you. For each of you, we have decreed a law and a clear way. If God had willed, He would have made you one community, but He is to test you with what He has given you. So, you shall compete for the righteousness. To God you all will return, then He will inform you of what in it you had disputed.
[33:40] Muhammad has not been a father of anyone of your men, but has been a messenger of God and a seal of the prophets and God has done being Knower of everything.
[2:62] Surely, those who believed, and those who turned to Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians; whoever believed in God and the Last Day, and did as righteous that there is their reward with their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor will they grieve.
[5:69] Surely, those who believed, and those who turned to Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians; whoever believed in God and the Last Day, and did as righteous that there is no fear for them, nor will they grieve.
[22:17] Surely, those who believed, those who turned to Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians, and the Zoroastrians, and those who associated partners; indeed, God will judge between them on a day of the Resurrection. Surely, God is a Witness over all things.
God teaches us in the Quran that Submission (Islam in Arabic) is a religion that belongs to Him and whoever seeks any religion other than Submission will not be accepted from him and he will be loser in the Hereafter (3:19, 3:83, 3:85):
[3:19] Indeed, the religion with God is Submission, and those who were given the scripture has not disputed except after what of the knowledge came to them out of jealousy between them. And whoever disbelieves in God’s revelations, then God is swift in reckoning.
[3:83] So is there other than God’s religion they seek while whoever is in the heavens and the earth have submitted to Him willingly or unwillingly? And to Him they will be returned.
[3:85] And whoever seeks other than the Submission as religion, is never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be with the losers.
In fact, the God’s religion has evolved over the period of time according to His will to make it fit to the respective generation of people, even though the core message and practices always been the same for all generations of people. It is a religion of Adam and Eve but in a simple form just a few words that were given to them to recite to redeem themselves (7:23 & 2:37) and the continuation of similar words given to us found in sura 1 (Al-Fatehah – The Key) for our redemption as well in the Quran, which is a God’s messenger and a seal of the prophets (33:40) revealed through Muhammad, being the truth from our Lord to remove our evil deeds as well as to improve our condition (47:2):
[7:23] They (both Adam and Eve) said, “Our Lord, we have wronged our souls, and if You do not forgive for us and have mercy on us, surely, we will certainly be with the losers.”
[2:37] Then Adam received words from his Lord, so He turned to him. Indeed, He is the Redeemer, the Merciful.
[33:40] Muhammad has not been a father of anyone of your men, but has been a messenger of God and a seal of the prophets and God has done being Knower of everything.
[47:2] And those who believed and have done the righteous deeds, and believed in what has been revealed through Muhammad, and it is the truth from their Lord, He has removed their evil deeds from them and has improved their condition.
However, the religious rites that we practice today were given to Abraham who prayed to make him and his descendants submitters and to teach the religious rites as well as to raise up a messenger among them to recite scripture to purify them 2:128-129) that came down to us through the practicing of people generation after generation (2:130, 4:125), and Muhammad was not only commanded to continue theses practices (6:161, 16:123) but also to preach it to his people (3:95) and all of us as well (22:78) incorporating updates of certain practices in many verses in the Quran including practice of moderate tone in the prayer (17:110):
[2:128] Our (Abraham together with Ismael) Lord, and make us submitters to You, and from our descendants let there be a community of submitters to You. Teach us the rites of our religion, and redeem us. You are the Redeemer, the Merciful.
[2:129] Our Lord, and raise up among them a messenger from among themselves, that he may recite to them Your revelations and teach them the scripture and the wisdom, and purify them. Indeed, You are the Almighty, the Wise.
[2:130] And who would forsake a religion of Abraham except one who has fooled himself? Indeed, we have chosen him in the world, and indeed, he is in the Hereafter will surely be with the righteous.
[4:125] And who has better religion than one who has submitted himself to God and is a righteous and follows religion of Abraham, monotheism? And God has chosen Abraham as a friend.
[3:95] Say (Muhammad), “God has proclaimed the truth, so you shall follow religion of Abraham, monotheism; and he was not an idol worshiper.”
[6:161] Say (Muhammad), “Indeed me, my Lord has guided me in a straight path – a right religion of Abraham, monotheism; and he was not an idol worshiper.”
[16:123] Then we inspired to you (Muhammad) that you shall follow religion of Abraham, monotheism; he was not an idol worshiper.
[22:78] And you all shall strive for God with His due striving. He has chosen you and has placed no hardship on you in the religion, a religion of your father Abraham. He (God) named you submitters from before, and in this that the messenger may be a witness among you, and you may be witnesses among the people. So, you shall observe the Contact Prayer (Salat) and shall give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and shall hold fast to God; He is your Protector, is the best Protector and the best Supporter.
[17:110] Say (Muhammad): “Call on God or call on the Most Gracious. Whatever you call on, to Him belongs the best names.” And you are not to be loud in your prayer, nor are you to be silent in it, and you shall use a path in between that.
God is the Guide who guides with the Quran whoever seeks His acceptance and to be guided to the straight path and brings him out of the darkness into the light (5:16) and has given the Quran as a guidance, a mercy, the clear guidance and the statute book for the righteous and the good-doers (31:1-3, 2:1-2, 2:185) confirming One god (deity) to worship and not associating anyone in worship of Him avoiding those who associate partners with Him (18:110, 41:6), to make people happy in this world as well as in the Hereafter (10:64; 65:11):
[5:16] God guides with it (Quran) whoever has sought His acceptance to the ways of peace; and He brings them out of the darkness into the light by His leave; and He guides them to a straight path.
[31:1-3] Alif.Laam.Meem. This is of signs of the scripture, the wise. A guidance and a mercy for the good-doers.
[2:1-2] Alif.Laam.Meem. That scripture wherein there is no doubt, is a guidance for the righteous.
[2:185] Ramadan is a month in which the Quran has been revealed as a guidance for the people, clear proofs of the guidance and the statute book. So whoever among you has witnessed the month, then he should fast in it, and whoever has been ill or on a journey then the prescribed number from other days. God wishes ease for you, and He does not wish hardship for you that you may complete the number, and that you may glorify God for guiding you so that you may be grateful.
[18:110] Say: “I (Muhammad) am only a human being like you; it is inspired to me that your god is One god. So whoever has desire of meeting his Lord, then he should do deed as righteous and should not associate anyone in worship of his Lord.”
[41:6] Say, “I (Muhammad) am only a human being like you; it is inspired to me that your god is One god. So you shall be straight to Him and shall ask His forgiveness.” And woe for the idolaters.
[10:64] For them there are good news in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. There is no change of God’s words. That is the great success.
[65:11] A messenger (message) recites to you clear revelations of God that it may bring those who have believed and have done the righteous deeds out of the darkness into the light. And whoever believes in God and does as righteous, He will admit him into gardens, the rivers flow of their underneath, is abiding therein forever. Certainly, God has made good provision for him.
God teaches us to seek the truth while He wants us to verify with our own God given senses, the practices we accept and attribute to God. But most of us were often taught to follow our parents, and not to question the religious clergy, and this is not at all the behavior that God wishes for His worshipers. His worshipers are intelligent, they research and study, and then they follow their sincere convictions (16:78; 17:36; 23:78; 39:18):
[16:78] And God has brought you out of your mothers’ wombs while you knew nothing. And He has given you the hearing and the eyesight and the understanding, so that you may be thankful.
[17:36] And you should not follow what you have no knowledge of it. Indeed, the hearing, and the vision, and the understanding – each of those has been the questioned about it.
[23:78] He is the One who has given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the understanding. Rarely are you appreciative.
[39:18] They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom God has guided; these are the ones who possess intelligence.
God teaches us to invite to His path with the truth on the basis of a clear proof as well as with wisdom and enlightenment advocating righteousness and forbidding evil to be a community of those who can be the winners (7:181; 12:108; 16:125; 3:104):
[7:181] Among our creations, there are those who guide with the truth, and the truth renders them righteous.
[12:108] Say, “This is my path: I invite to God having a clear knowledge – I and whoever followed me. And glory be to God and I am not among the idolaters.”
[16:125] You shall invite to the path of your Lord with the wisdom and the enlightenment of the righteousness, and debate with them with that which is goodness. Indeed, your Lord, He is a Knower of who has strayed off from His path, and He is a Knower of the guided ones.
[3:104] And let there be a community of you who invite to what is good, advocate righteousness, and forbid from the evil, and these are the winners.
However, the winners are those who worship God alone (3:18) what has been taught Moses in the sacred valley of Tuwa when God directly spoke to him (20:14) and also what has been taught Muhammad through the scripture revealed to him (47:19). Worshiping God alone means not associating anyone or anything with Him, devoting all of our worship to Him alone what has been taught Muhammad as well being submitter (Muslim) to Him (6:162-163) and to implore Him to be appreciative to Him to have His mercy to admit us with His righteous servants what has been confirmed through Solomon’s prayer (27:19):
[3:18] God bears witness that there is no other god except He and so do the angels and possessors of the knowledge established with the justice; there is no other god except He, the Almighty, the Wise.
[20:14] “Indeed Me, I am God; there is no other god besides I. So, you (Moses) shall worship Me, and shall observe the Contact Prayer for My remembrance”.
[47:19] So you (Muhammad) shall know that there is no other god besides God; and you shall ask forgiveness for your sin and for the believing men and the believing women while God knows (all) your return and (all) your reward.
[6:162] Say (Muhammad), “My Contact Payers (Salat), my worship practices, my life and my death, are all devoted absolutely to God alone, Lord of the universe.
[6:163] There is no partner for Him and in that I (Muhammad) have been commanded, and I am first of the submitters.”
[27:19] My (Solomon) Lord, grant me to appreciate the blessings You have bestowed upon me and my parents, and to do the righteous works that please You. And admit me by Your mercy with Your righteous servants.
Quran is a reminder for the world, which has been repeatedly mentioned in the Quran while the mathematical coding of the Quran is also a reminder for the human race when it has come to them (74:30-37). The name of the message being mathematical coding hints in 74:30 and the core message as the reminder in (74:31). While 19 is a common denominator of the Quran’s mathematical system as well as a sign to support the messenger destined to unveil it coded in the message found in (74:30) being a great sign (74:35) have been confirmed by God taking an oath referring to the moon, the night and the morning (74:32-34) to warn the most advanced community of the world among them whoever wishes to advance or to stay behind (74:36-37):
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] And we have not made guardians of the Fire except angels, and we have not made their number except a warning for those who disbelieved, that it may ascertain those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and may increase faith of those who have believed (Muslims), and may not doubt those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and the believers (Muslims). And that may say those in their hearts there is a disease (hypocrites) and the disbelievers, “What has God meant by this allegory?” Thus, God misguides whomever He wills and He guides whomever He wills. And none knows your Lord’s soldiers except He. And it is not except a reminder for the human race.
[74:32-34] Nay, (I swear) by the moon. And the night when it departs. And the morning when it brightens.
[74:35] Indeed, it is undoubtedly one of the great (signs).
[74:36-37] A warning for the human race. For whoever among you wishes that he may advance or he may stay behind.
Thus, the prophecy has been fulfilled through sending a messenger as prophesied in the Quran (3:81 and 33:7) connected with divine promises to protect it from any distortion (15:9) and when the people have been with His revelations do not ascertain what to believe and pratice (27:82) for avoiding misinterpretation of the Quran by the learned as well as misconceptions and unauthorized practices in the God’s religion introduced by tradition and the so called scholars:
[3:81] And when God took a covenant from the prophets: “Whatever I have given you of scripture and wisdom, then a messenger will come to you confirming what is with you. You must believe in him and you must support him.” He said: “Do you agree and accept My covenant on that?” They said: “We agree.” He said: “Then you shall bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.”
[33:7] And when we took from the prophets their covenant, and from you (Muhammad), and from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary. And we took from them a solemn covenant.
[15:9] Indeed, we have revealed the reminder (Quran), and indeed, we will certainly be protectors of it.
[27:82] And when the punishment has fulfilled upon them, we have brought forth for them a creature from the earth speaks to them that the people have been with our revelations do not ascertain.
Therefore, God’s religion is progressive what He has commanded us to continue when the Quran was revealed should not be trapped in time and place nor can it be connected with any prophets and messengers (4:164, 40:78, 42:13):
[4:164] And messengers we have surely mentioned them to you from before, and messengers we do not mention them to you; and God spoke to Moses directly.
[40:78] And certainly, we have sent messengers before yours, some of them we have mentioned to you, and some of them we did not mention to you. And it is not for any messenger that he comes with a sign except God’s permission. So when God’s command has come, it has been decided with the truth while the falsifiers will then lose.
[42:13] He decreed for all of you the religion what He enjoined for Noah, and what we inspired to you (Muhammad), and what we enjoined for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. That you shall uphold the religion, and you are not to divide in it, is difficult for the idolaters what you (Muhammad) call them to it. God chooses to Himself whomever He wills and He guides to Himself whoever turns (towards Him).
Now we live in an age of reason and not of blind faith. It is thus necessary for any intelligent person to debate all matters and not to succumb to the influence of their native environment alone. One should not just rely on the religious background passed on through parents or the society alone. Even our knowledge is limited but still to explore God’s religion with the tool given by Him will give us a better understanding of His religion. The discovery of the mathematical coding of the Quran (74:30) in 1974 opened a new era providing a powerful verifiable evidences of God’s existence, as well as believing and accepting the truth upon verification, as God wants us all to see as true believers (8:2) being the seer instead of being the blind for our success with Him (6:50):
[8:2] Only the believers are those – when has been mentioned God, has feared their hearts, and when has been recited His revelations to them, has increased them of faith, and upon their Lord they put trust.
[6:50] Say, “I (Muhammad) do not say to you that I possess the treasures of God, nor do I know the future, nor do I say to you that I am an angel. I do not follow except what is revealed to me.” Say, “Is the blind the same as the seer? Then do you not reflect?”
However, let us have a sincere drive to make our journey simple and easy by understanding God’s religion as dictated by Him in the Quran and follow what makes sense to us befitting to the generation we are living now so that we do not have to see the retribution of Hell at our meeting with God, and we would not have to curse our leaders and the learned who misled us for obeying them to give them double retribution (33:66-68) and to trample them under our feet (41:29):
[33:66] The day their faces will be turned over in the Fire, they will say: “Oh, we wish we had obeyed God, and obeyed the messenger.”
[33:67] And they will say: “Our Lord, we obeyed our leaders and our learned ones, but they misled us from the straight path .
[33:68] Our Lord, give them double the retribution, and curse them with a great curse.”
[41:29] And said those who disbelieved: “Our Lord, show us those who have misled us of the jinn and the human we can trample them under our feet that they may be with the lowliest.”
