[5:3] It has been forbidden upon you the dead animal, and the blood, and the meat of pig, and what has been sacrificed with it to other than God; and that which has been strangled, and that which has been beaten to death, and that which has fallen from a height, and that which has been gored, and that which the wild animals have attacked except what has been slaughtered (before it dies), and what has been slaughtered on the alters, and that you divide by the arrows of chance – that all is abominable. Today, those who disbelieved have given up of your religion, so you are not to fear them, but you shall fear Me. Today, I have perfected your religion for you, and have completed My blessing upon you, and have given Islam as religion for you. So, whoever has been forced by hunger not willing for sin, then indeed, God is Forgiving, Merciful.
[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) has named you submitters 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 (al-salata) and shall give the Obligatory Charity (al-zakata), and shall hold fast to God; He is your Protector, so has been the excellent Protector and has been the excellent Supporter.
[4:125] And who has better religion than one who has submitted himself to God, and he is a good-doer (muh’sinun) and has followed a religion of Abraham, monotheism? And God has chosen Abraham as a friend.
However, Islam continues to grow to be one of the misunderstood religions in the world without taking into account that scripture and religion are the two handles to hold fast to God to make the strongest bond with Him. The present picture of Islam is worse than ever before for confining it within the festivities and show offs instead of practicing of its given rites based on God’s words to remember God dedicating prayers and praises to Him alone. Thus, it is unfortunate to mention that it is very difficult to find a God’s Masjid to observe the Friday congregation prayer dedicating the prayer to Him alone. One reason for this is the fact that for centuries the best religion has not been duly presented to the world through the so-called Muslim people, scholars, institutions, organizations, countries and media especially, social media to act or function in an Islamic manner according to God’s teaching what He has detailed in the Quran ( 2:185, 6:126-127, 17:9, and 19:97):
[2:185] Ramadan which is a month, has been revealed in it the Quran as a guidance for mankind, 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, and that you may complete the prescribed number, and that you may glorify God through which He has guided you and that you may appreciate.
[6:126] And this (Quran) is a straight path to your Lord. Certainly, we have detailed the revelations for a people who take heed.
[6:127] For them is an abode of the peace (daaru al-salaam) at their Lord, and He is their Protector for what they have done to achieve.
[17:9] Indeed, this – the 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.
[19:97] So we have indeed made it (Quran) easy in your (prophet) tongue that you (Muhammad) may give good news to the righteous with it (Quran) and may warn a hostile people with it (Quran).
The Muslim community have divided them into many sub-sects belonging to two major sects: Shia and Sunni and do not prepare them for the Hereafter in pursuance of an abode of the peace at their Lord reflecting on teachings of the Quran, which is a complete (3:23) and the final edition of God’s scripture revealed through Prophet Muhammad (33:40) brought down by the Holy Spirit with the truth as guidance and good news for the submitters (16:102) while the believers are only those who fear God and increase faith with His words putting trust upon their Lord (8:2):
[3:23] Do you not see of those who have been given a part of the scripture? they are invited to a scripture of God that it should judge between them, then a party of them turns away and they are the averse.
[33:40] Muhammad has not been a father of anyone of your men, but has had a messenger of God and a seal of the prophets, and God has done being Knower of everything.
[16:102] Say: “The Holy Spirit has revealed it from your Lord with the truth that it can strengthen those who have believed, and a guidance and good news for the submitters.”
[8:2] The believers are only 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.
Islam is a very simple religion to practice that has been decreed for all having total religious freedom that God has defined in the Quran making distinct the right from the wrong being the strongest bond with Him but there is no compulsion in it (2:256) while it is a religion that belongs to Him and whoever seeks any religion other than it will not be accepted from him and he will be a loser in the Hereafter (3:19, 3:83, 3:85):
[2:256] There is no compulsion in the religion. Certainly, it has made distinct the right from the wrong. So, whoever disbelieves in the false deities and believes in God, then certainly, he has grasped with the strongest bond, there is no break of it. And God is Hearer, Knower.
[3:19] Indeed, the religion with God is Submission; and has not differed those who have been given the scripture except after what has come to them the knowledge out of jealousy between them. And whoever disbelieves in God’s revelations, then indeed, God is swift in the reckoning.
[3:83] So is there other than God’s religion that they can seek? While to Him has submitted whatever in the heavens and the earth in willingness and unwillingness, and to Him they will be returned.
[3:85] And whoever seeks other than Submission as religion, will not be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter, he will be with the losers.
It is a progressive religion given by God that dates back to the age of Adam and its message has been conveyed to humanity by His prophets and messengers (21:2, 42:13). Thus, 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):
[21:2] Not a reminder comes to them from their Lord, is new; except that they have listened to it while they reluct.
[42:13] He has decreed for all of you the religion what He had enjoined for Noah, and what we have inspired to you (Muhammad), and what we had enjoined for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus that you shall establish the religion and you do not divide in it. It has been 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 to.
[9:33] He is the One who has sent His messenger with the guidance and a religion of the truth that He would make it prevail over the religion of any of it, even if has disliked the idolaters.
[48:28] He is the One who has sent His messenger with the guidance and a religion of the truth 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 has sent His messenger with the guidance and a religion of the truth that He would make it prevail over the religion of any of it, even though has disliked the idolaters.
God has sent down messages from time to time through His prophets and messengers to guide humanity to the right path even destroying the disbelieving people making them 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] Thus, we have sent our messengers in succession. Every time its messenger had come to a community, they have denied him. So we have made to follow one of them to other, and we have made them precedents that away is a people – they do not believe.
[35:32] Then we have made to inherit the scripture to those whom we have chosen among our servants while among them there is a wrongdoer for himself, among them there is a moderate one, and among them there is a foremost in the good deeds by God’s permission, that is the great of the bounty.
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, while He will judge between them what they called their religions or the communities (2:62, 5:69, 22:17) being a Witness:
[3:3] He has revealed through you (Muhammad) the scripture with the truth, is a confirmation of what was its before; and He has sent down the Torah and the Gospel.
[5:48] And we have revealed to you (Muhammad) the scripture with the truth, is a confirmation of the scripture what was its before, and is a consolidation of it. So you shall judge between them of what God has revealed, and you do not follow their desires when has come to you of the truth. For each of you we have made law and rite; and if God had willed, surely, He would have made you one community, but that He can test you with what He has given you that you shall race the good. To God you will return all of you, then He will inform you of what you have done to differ in it.
[2:62] Indeed, those who have believed, and those who turned to Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians; whoever has believed in God and the Last Day, and has done as righteous, then for them, there is their reward with their Lord; and there is no fear for them, nor do they grieve.
[5:69] Indeed, those who have believed, and those who turned to Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians; whoever has believed in God and the Last Day, and has done as righteous, then there is no fear for them, nor do they grieve.
[22:17] Indeed, those who have believed, those who turned to Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians, and the Magians, and those who associated partners; indeed, God will judge between them on a day of the Resurrection. Indeed, God is a Witness over all things.
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 is found in the words given to us in Surah 1: (Al-Faatihah – The Opening) similar to that to open our contact with Him 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) and to bring us out of the darkness into the light to admit into gardens abiding therein forever with good provision (65:11):
[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 had a messenger of God and a seal of the prophets, and God has done being Knower of everything.
[47:2] And those who have believed and have done the righteous deeds, and have 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.
[65:11] A messenger (message) recites God’s revelations to you is clear 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, flowing the rivers of their underneath, is abiding therein forever. Certainly, God has provided good for him.
However, the religious rites that we practice today were given to Abraham who prayed to his Lord 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), and Muhammad was not only commanded to continue these practices (6:161, 16:123) but also to preach it to a people who believed with him (3:95) incorporating updates of certain practices in many verses in the Quran including the use of moderate tone in practicing the salat prayer (17:110):
[2:128] Our Lord (Abraham together with Ismael), and make us submitters to You, and from our descendants make a community of submitters to You, and show us our ways of worship and turn to us. Indeed, You are the Redeemer, the Merciful.
[2:129] Our Lord, and raise up among them a messenger from them, he may recite to them Your revelations and may teach them the scripture and the wisdom, and may purify them. Indeed, You are the Almighty, the Wise.
[2:130] And who turns away from a religion of Abraham except whoever has fooled himself? And certainly, we have chosen him in the world, and indeed, he is in the Hereafter surely, will be with the righteous.
[3:95] Say (Muhammad), “God has proclaimed the truth, so you shall follow a religion of Abraham, monotheism; and he has not been with the idol worshipers.”
[6:161] Say (Muhammad), “Indeed me, my Lord has guided me in a straight path – a right religion of Abraham, monotheism; and he has not been with the idol worshipers.”
[16:123] Then we inspired to you (Muhammad) that you shall follow a religion of Abraham, monotheism; he has not been with the idol worshipers.
[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 do not be loud in your prayer, nor do you be silent in it, and you shall use a path in between that.
God is a Guide and a Helper (25:31) who guides with the scripture and through the rites He has instituted for us (2:185, 22:36-37) to appreciate Him to be guided as well as to bring the believers out of the darkness into the light (5:16) and has given the Quran as a guidance, a mercy to be righteous and good doers (2:1-2, 31:1-3):
[25:31] And thus that we have made an enemy for every prophet from the criminals while has sufficed with your Lord as Guide and Helper.
[2:185] Ramadan which is a month, has been revealed in it the Quran 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, and that you may complete the prescribed number, and that you may glorify God through which He has guided you and that you may appreciate.
[22:36] And the livestock, we have made them for you among God’s rites wherein there is righteousness for you. So you shall mention God’s name upon them in the line, so is when are down at their sides. Then you shall eat from it and shall feed the poor and the needy. It is thus that we have made them for your service that you may appreciate.
[22:37] Neither their meat nor their blood reaches God, but reaches Him is the righteousness from you. Thus that He has subjected them (livestock) for you that you may glorify God through which He has guided you and shall give good news to the good doers.
[5:16] God guides with it (Quran) whoever has sought His acceptance to ways of the peace; and He brings them out of the darkness into the light with His will and guides them to a straight path.
[2:1-2] Alif.Laam.Meem. That (dhaalika in singular masculine form) is the scripture, there is no doubt in it, a guidance for the righteous (lil’muttaqeen).
[31:1-3] Alif.Laam.Meem. That (til’ka in singular feminine form) is of signs (Quranic initials) of the scripture, the wise. A guidance and a mercy for the good-doers (lil’muh’sineen).
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; 23:78; 39:18):
[16:78] And God has brought forth you from your mothers’ wombs, not knowing anything, and has made for you the hearing and the eyesight and the understanding that you may appreciate.
[23:78] And He is the One who has made for you the hearing, the eyesight, and the understanding; what you appreciate is very little.
[39:18] Those who listen to the Word (Quran), then they follow of its best; Those are whom God has guided them, and those – they are possessors of the understanding.
God teaches us to invite people to His path with the truth to be established on it as well as with wisdom and enlightenment, and enjoinment of the good and forbidding them from the evil to be a community of those who would be the successful ones (7:181; 12:108; 16:125; 3:104):
[7:181] And from whom we have created a community, it guides with the truth, and with it they establish justice.
[12:108] Say, “This is my path: I (Muhammad) invite to God with an enlightenment – I and whoever has followed me. And glory to God and I am not with the idolaters.”
[16:125] You shall invite to your Lord’s path with the wisdom and the enjoinment of the good, and discuss with them with that which is good. 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 there should be a community from you to invite to the good, and to enjoin with the just, and to forbid from the evil. And those – they are the successful ones.
However, the winners are those who worship God alone what God has taught us all (3:18), even what has been taught Moses in the sacred valley of Tuwa when He directly spoke to him (20:14) and also what has been taught Muhammad through whom the Quran has been revealed (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 has testified that there is no god except He and so has done the angels and possessors of the knowledge established with the justice: there is no god except He, the Almighty, the Wise.
[20:14] “Indeed Me, I am God; there is no god except 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 god except 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), “Indeed, my salat prayer, and my practice (of rites), and my life and my death for God, Lord of the worlds.
[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 that I can appreciate the blessings You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I can do as righteous You like it. And admit me by Your mercy with Your righteous servants.
Quran is a reminder for the people of 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). There is a hint of the message name as mathematical coding is in (74:30) and the core message as the reminder is 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 indicated 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 has willed among you that he may advance or he may stay behind.
Thus, the covenant that God has taken from every prophet, i.e., has placed in every scripture sent down to humanity (3:81) including the Quran (33:7) has fulfilled through sending a messenger as individualized in (74:11-29) with the message spelled out in (74:30-37) supporting with the sign of number 19 (74:30) 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 practice (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 has taken a covenant of the prophets: “Certainly, whatever I have given you of scripture and wisdom, then has come to you a messenger confirming that which is with yourselves. You must believe in him and you must support him.” He said: “Have you affirmed and taken My covenant on that?” They said: “We have affirmed.” He said: “Then you shall bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.”
[33:7] And when we have taken their covenant from the prophets, and from you (Muhammad), and from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary. And we have taken a solemn covenant from them.
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[15:9] Indeed, we have revealed the reminder (Quran), and indeed, we will certainly be protectors of it.
[27:82] And when has fulfilled the punishment 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.
Thus, God’s religion being progressive, we should not leave out what He has commanded us to continue when the Quran was revealed that His religion cannot 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 certainly, from before we have narrated them through you (Muhammad), and messengers we do not narrate them through you (Muhammad); and God has spoken to Moses direct conversation.
[40:78] And certainly, we have sent messengers before yourself (Muhammad). Of them there are whoever we have narrated through you, and of them there are whoever we do not narrate through you. And it has not been for any messenger that he comes with a sign except by God’s leave. So, when has come God’s judgment, has been judged with the truth and has lost the falsifiers there.
[42:13] He has decreed for all of you the religion what He had enjoined for Noah, and what we have inspired to you (Muhammad), and what we had enjoined for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus that you shall establish the religion, and you do not divide in it. It has been 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 to (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 verifying with factual, as God wants us all to see as true believers (17:36) being the seer and the hearer instead of being the blind and the deaf (6:50, 11:24) what we need to be for our success with Him:
[17:36] And you do not follow that which has not for you any knowledge of it. Indeed, the hearing, and the vision, and the understanding – each of those has made accountable from it.
[6:50] Say, “I (Muhammad) do not say to you that there is God’s treasures with me, 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? Do you not then reflect?”
[11:24] An example of the two groups is like the blind and the deaf, and the seer and the hearer. Do the two equal in example? Do you not then take heed?
The life of the world is for the disbelievers having nothing for them in the Hereafter except the Fire and the Hereafter is for the believers (11:15-16, 42:20, 42:36) while we all are individually responsible for our souls whether we are male or female (45:15 and 4:124). Thus, we may sow in the life of world that we may harvest in the Hereafter upholding the given scripture and religion accepting God as our Deity, Lord, Protector and Supporter to have far better and everlasting reward with Him as promised for those who have put trust in their Lord, and have believed and have done the righteous deeds being an individual effort considering the worldly life a temporary enjoyment:
[11:15] Whoever has done desiring the life of the world and its adornments, we pay in full to them for their deeds in it, and they are not lessened in it.
[11:16] Those are the ones has nothing for them in the Hereafter except the Fire, and has become worthless what they have done in it, and being fabrication what they have done to accomplish.
[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 upon their Lord they put trust.
[45:15] Whoever has done as righteous, so does for his soul, and whoever has done evil, so does for it. Then to your Lord you will be returned.
[4:124] And whoever does the righteous deeds of a male or a female, while he is a believer, then those – they will enter the Paradise and will not be wronged as the speck on a date seed.
Therefore, let us have a sincere drive to make our journey simple and easy by understanding God’s religion as dictated by Him in the scripture, especially in the Quran, a complete (3:23) and the final edition of God’s scripture (33:40) 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, nor would we have to curse our leaders and learned who had 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.”
