Holding Fast to the Qur'an and Sunnah of Rasulullah SAW

Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah Radhiallahu Anhu :
'Some Malaikats @ Angels came to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam while he was sleeping.

Some of them said," He is sleeping!". The others said," His eyes are sleeping but his heart is awake!" Then they said,"There is an example for this companion of yours.

His example is that of a man who built a house and then offered therein a banquet and sent an inviter @ messenger to invite the people.

So, whoever accepted the invitation of the inviter, entered the house and ate at the banquet. Whoever did not accept the invitation of the inviter, did not enter the house , nor did he or she eat of the banquet!"

Then the Angels said," Interpret this parable to him so that he may understand it!"

One of them said, " He is sleeping!" The others said," His eyes are sleeping but his heart is awake!"

Then they said," The house stands for Paradise and the caller is Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam and whoever obeys Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam obeys Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and whoever disobeys Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam disobeys Allahu Ta'ala!

Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam
separated the people (i.e. through his Message, the Good is distinguished from the Bad, and the Believers (Muslims) from the Disbelievers (Kaffir's)!"

I have been receiving comments from those who do not yet know that without the advent of and the person of Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, the Faith of Islam and the Holy Qur'an of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala which we have with us today, will not come to exist as it has and that the world will still be full of false belief and acts of Kufur by the masses of humankind as it was back in the days of the Jahiliyyah Qureishi Arabs of Makkah!

They were so steeped in their ignorance and practicing all kinds of Kufur after losing their way from following the teachings of the Holy Prophet Ibrahim Alaihis Salam the Haniff @ the Monotheist!

Without paying respect to the Holy Prophet Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, these latter day 'know it all's , ridicule and lambast the Blessed Messenger as they please, thinking that they know better than the one who is so glorified by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as to make it a stipulation that to be a Muslim in the truest sense, one has to testify that 'There is No (other) God but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala alone and that Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam is the (Final and Greatest) Messenger of Allah!

No one can complete his or her Declaration of Faith @ Kalimah Shahadah without attesting to the statement that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah after Declaring that There is No God but Allah!

Anyone who shows disrespect to the person of Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam will be taken to task by Allahu Akbar and he or she will not be spared the consequences of their words, deeds and malice towards the one who is the Mercy of God Himself that has been sent to all of mankind including to even all of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala's other 124,000 Prophets and Messengers and encompassing the entire Creation!

In the Qur'an Chapter 40 Verse 56, Surah 'Ghafir, Allah SWT says :

"56. Verily, those who dispute about the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, without any authority having come to them, there is nothing else in their breasts except pride [to accept you (Muhammad ) as a Messenger of Allâh and to obey you].

They will never have it
(i.e. Prophethood which Allâh has bestowed upon you). So seek refuge in Allâh (O Muhammad from the arrogants). Verily, it is He Who is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer."

Islam is the Way of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala no doubt and the only one who came to teach it to us mankind is none other than the greatest man who ever lived!!!

These latter day smart alec's speak so arrogantly and deny the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, his due respect and recognition as if they are the saviours of mankind themselves and seek to illspeak of him!

Na'uzubillah hi min zalik! May Allah's Retribution be upon them!

I call upon my fellow Muslims and Muslimats to ignore these wayward faultfinders of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam and hold fast to the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Rasul SAW!

These ignorants will not be answering for us on our behalf but will be held responsible themselves for what they try to mislead the people by their nonsense.

Allah SWT will guide those whom He chooses and grants His Taufeek and Hidayah! Insya Allah!

Many of them preserve their misdeeds by creating websites and insult the person of Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam thinking that they will not be charged of committing blasphemy against Allah SWT and His Prophet SAW.

Well, Time has always proved how their predecessors have always found out that they shall reap what they sow!

When even the whole world acknowledges the excellence of the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam as proven by their attestment to the position of the Prophet of Islam to be the # 1 Most Influential Person in the History of Mankind as shown in the graphic above taken from Michael Hart's TOP 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSONS IN HISTORY, what more do we need to say or prove to these kind?

I leave it to Ar Rahman to give them either guidance or their dues as they have merited it!

Wallahu Alam Bissawab.

dear respected mahaguru,

i guess u also have received several emails from difference persons/sources arguing the credibility of al-hadith to be the source of Islamic-Law selain drpd Al-Quran.

I don't have any idea how these guys practicing Islam for e.g. how they pray since the method of solah is not covered in Al-Quran.

Do they eat fish? since in Al-Quran those benda yg tak disembelih adalah bangkai. So those anti-hadith group for me eating carcass/bangkai all the time...

poor them. really pathetic...
kasihan sungguh saya pada mereka.

Alhamdulillah, All our salutations to Rasulillahi Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalatu Wassalam, Saiyidul Mursalin, Khataman Nabiyyi, Al Mustafa, Habibullah!

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Dear Muslims,
As you can see, we have amongst us , those who dare to ridicule and question, the high respect and status that even non Muslims accord to Muhammad ibni Abdullah, the Blessed Messenger sent by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to all Creation, surpassing all other Prophets and Messengers of Allah , Rabbul Jaleel.

As of this day, I will no longer accord any more space here to this person who has proven himself to be not worthy of giving anymore opportunities to sow discord and ill feelings in the hearts and souls of the muslims and those who have no enmity towards us and are all for decent, intelligent discourse and dialogue worth our status as humanbeings.

Here are other famous humans who have this to say about the most important humanbeing in History; Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam
and Islam :-

K. S. Ramakrishna Rao in 'Mohammed: The Prophet of Islam,' 1989

"My problem to write this monograph is easier, because we are not generally fed now on that (distorted) kind of history and much time need not be spent on pointing out our misrepresentations of Islam. The theory of Islam and sword, for instance, is not heard now in any quarter worth the name. The principle of Islam that “there is no compulsion in religion” is well known.

James Michener in ‘Islam: The Misunderstood Religion,’ Reader’s Digest, May 1955, pp. 68-70.

"No other religion in history spread so rapidly as Islam. The West has widely believed that this surge of religion was made possible by the sword. But no modern scholar accepts this idea, and the Qur’an is explicit in the support of the freedom of conscience."

“Like almost every major prophet before him, Muhammad fought shy of serving as the transmitter of God’s word sensing his own inadequacy. But the Angel commanded ‘Read’. So far as we know, Muhammad was unable to read or write, but he began to dictate those inspired words which would soon revolutionize a large segment of the earth: "There is one God"."

“In all things Muhammad was profoundly practical. When his beloved son Ibrahim died, an eclipse occurred and rumors of God 's personal condolence quickly arose. Whereupon Muhammad is said to have announced, ‘An eclipse is a phenomenon of nature. It is foolish to attribute such things to the death or birth of a human being'."

“At Muhammad's own death an attempt was made to deify him, but the man who was to become his administrative successor killed the hysteria with one of the noblest speeches in religious history: ‘If there are any among you who worshiped Muhammad, he is dead. But if it is God you Worshiped, He lives for ever'.”
Washington Irving 'Mahomet and His Successors'

He was sober and abstemious in his diet and a rigorous observer of fasts. He indulged in no magnificence of apparel, the ostentation of a petty mind; neither was his simplicity in dress affected but a result of real disregard for distinction from so trivial a source.

In his private dealings he was just. He treated friends and strangers, the rich and poor, the powerful and weak, with equity, and was beloved by the common people for the affability with which he received them, and listened to their complaints.

His military triumphs awakened no pride nor vain glory, as they would have done had they been effected for selfish purposes. In the time of his greatest power he maintained the same simplicity of manners and appearance as in the days of his adversity. So far from affecting a regal state, he was displeased if, on entering a room, any unusual testimonials of respect were shown to him. If he aimed at a universal dominion, it was the dominion of faith; as to the temporal rule which grew up in his hands, as he used it without ostentation, so he took no step to perpetuate it in his family.


D. G. Hogarth in 'Arabia'

Serious or trivial, his daily behavior has instituted a canon which millions observe this day with conscious memory. No one regarded by any section of the human race as Perfect Man has ever been imitated so minutely. The conduct of the founder of Christianity has not governed the ordinary life of his followers. Moreover, no founder of a religion has left on so solitary an eminence as the Muslim apostle.
W. Montgomery Watt in 'Muhammad at Mecca,' Oxford, 1953.

His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems that it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad.... Thus, not merely must we credit Muhammad with essential honesty and integrity of purpose, if we are to understand him at all; if we are to correct the errors we have inherited from the past, we must not forget the conclusive proof is a much stricter requirement than a show of plausibility, and in a matter such as this only to be attained with difficulty.
Rodwell in the Preface to his translation of the Holy Qur'an

Mohammad's career is a wonderful instance of the force and life that resides in him who possesses an intense faith in God and in the unseen world. He will always be regarded as one of those who have had that influence over the faith, morals and whole earthly life of their fellow men, which none but a really great man ever did, or can exercise; and whose efforts to propagate a great verity will prosper.
Sir George Bernard Shaw in 'The Genuine Islam,' Vol. 1, No. 8, 1936.

"If any religion had the chance of ruling over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, it could be Islam."

“I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion for from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity."

"I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today.”
Mahatma Gandhi, statement published in 'Young India,'1924.

I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind.... I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life.
Michael Hart in 'The 100, A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons In History,' New York, 1978.

My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the secular and religious level. ...It is probable that the relative influence of Muhammad on Islam has been larger than the combined influence of Jesus Christ and St. Paul on Christianity. ...It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.

Now, with all the salutations and respect accorded to Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam by the non Muslim illuminaries above, there is no basis for you as a Muslim or claiming to be one to dispute and ask for further proof of "I am curious to know as to how do you argue your case to answer queries from whoever in relation to those nonbelievers who have not been chosen by Allah and given Taufeek and Hidayah to see the light!"

So far, you are the only one who is so bloody stupid to put forth such a question!

I have had it with you , you who call yourself so, and in the rights that I have as a blogger who can kick your ass as I please, hehehe..
I hereby will delete the comment you made and hereby ban you from this cyberspace called the area of Mahaguru58! :D

You are history! Meriza must be happy with this , I am sure!

Sayonara !
