Sometimes you don’t know whether a guy is kidding or what. We had a guy in Quranology Discussions FB who actually told us to take down our sites, delete our groups because it ‘ran contrary to Islam’. Amazing. Well, one of our main guys, Ifti, decided to reply to this Big Pain. Here’s his fantastic reply:
I have identified a person who is trying to play “GOD” for a long time and here I am here to reply to him and all associated with him. Please read this note very carefully and use your own logic and brain. I am sure you would be able to definitely understand, as all of this is in english.
First things first.
What is Quranology?
A group where we TRY to understand the Quran by collecting various opinions, ideas, point of views, studies etc. The group is open for whose who are tolerant, polite, peaceful and have logic. You always have to keep in mind that you have to agree to disagree and should not curse other people as some try to. And also should never try to play God.
You do not have to agree with the person’s views all what is required is to be polite and peaceful which definitely lacks in Mr. Mahtab Hossain.
Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and argue with them in the best way possible. Your Lord surely knows best who has gone astray from His way, and He knows best who are the rightly guided (Quran 16:125)
We in our group may have various opinions about what is what and what could be. We however, do not stop anyone from offering 5 times salaat. There are people who offer 5 times, 3 times, 20 times etc. I would ask Mahtab Hossain now, would he stop the person praying 30 times salaat and will he say that he/she is not a muslim? who gave him the right to decide? is he God? of course he is just a human being who is trying very hard to prove something out here. In our group if you pray 5 times or 50 times it does not really matter. Yes we do pray but we do not have the liability to tell a human how and when we pray coz our prayer are not to show off to people they are for God. Isnt Allah the one to decide who is Muslim who is not?
Mahtab said in his note:-
“They do not give any Importance to our Prophet Muhammad (SAS). They just think that he was like any other Muslims like us. But they never realize that he was never like us nor was he a Super Man.”
Can he prove what he is saying? We never said that we do not give any importance to Prophet Muhammad. We acknowledge that the Quran is revealed to Prophet Muhammad and also we remember the verse quoted below:-
The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. “We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers.” And they say: “We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.” (Quran 2:285)
I know you are intelligent people and after this verse I do not have to emphasise on anything else.
We do not preach anything as I have explained earlier the motive of the group is to collect various opinions and analyze them without any hatered to people. So even if you are a christian or hindu or anything and if you have something valuable to share you are most welcome to understand and to share.
Furthermore, Mr. Mahtab has connected us with some shia regime which I do not know what it is but he has to definitely prove it. Or else he is a liar and he must accept that.
Mr. Mahtab is also trying to disturb the peace by calling war on us innocent people for just trying to understand the Quran. He wants to kill us which is a death threat and is definitely calling attention.
He Quotes few verses which you should check yourselves and it does not say anything about praying 5 times. Again its upon us individual to answer Allah not to Mahtab.
Please read this verse carefully:-
And Allah most certainly knows those who believe, and as certainly those who are Hypocrites (Quran 29:11)
Mr. Mahtab did not hesitate a single bit in calling us Munafiqs or asking us if we are Muslims or not well the Quran is clearly saying its only Allah who knows it and it did not mention “Mahtab” its written Allah there. Now I ask you people whoever he is corrupting agaisnt us. Will you be agreeing with what he is saying when he is clearly taking the authority what Allah and only Allah has? Are you really going to support him for this? well its upon you what you choose and we are all answerable to Allah definitely.
There is nothing like a true muslim (Muslimo Sadiqun) or something like that in the holy Quran if you really read the Quran you will never find the word true Muslim. I dont know how many of you would like to go with him on something which is illogical. If Muslim means submitter to God there cannot be a true or false. Go figure.
Dear people please note that it is God who will decide who is on the right path and who is not . Not some retired guy who does not have anything to do except threatening people and including our names in his false accusations.
And say: “Truth has arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is bound to perish.”
