Verse 22:17 – Destroying the hypocrites’ fallacies

24 Aug

As-Salamu ‘Alaikum

The enemies of Islam love to play with Allah’s Quran trying to please their kafir brothers and sisters. This verse 22:17 is one of the verses that is often abused by them.

Here is what the scholars of tafsiir say in regards to this verse:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالصَّابِئِينَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ وَالْمَجُوسَ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَفْصِلُ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ

Translation of meaning: Indeed, the BELIEVERS, and the jews, and the sabians, and the christians, and the magians, and the idol-worshipers, Allah will judge between them on the day of resurrection. Indeed Allah is the witness over everything. [Holy Quran 22:17]

From Imam Ibn Kathiir’s Tafsiir under the ayah:

يخبر تعالى عن أهل هذه الأديان المختلفة من المؤمنين ، ومن سواهم من اليهود والصابئين – وقد قدمنا في سورة ” البقرة ” التعريف بهم ، واختلاف الناس فيهم – والنصارى والمجوس ، والذين أشركوا فعبدوا غير الله معه; فإنه تعالى ( يفصل بينهم يوم القيامة ) ، ويحكم بينهم بالعدل ، فيدخل من آمن به الجنة ، ومن كفر به النار ، فإنه تعالى شهيد على أفعالهم ، حفيظ لأقوالهم ، عليم بسرائرهم ، وما تكن ضمائرهم . 

The Almighty is informing about the people of all these different religions OTHER THAN THE BELIEVERS, and those other than them like the jews and the sabians, and we have already given their definitions in Surah Baqarah and the differing sayings of people regarding them. And the christians and magians and the idol-worshipers, they worship other than Allah, associating them as partners to Him. Thus The Almighty {judge between them on the day of judgment} [means] and [He] will judge between them with justice, and enter those who believe in Him [by accepting His Messenger Muhammad, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, and all that he brought with him], into paradise, and who disbelieves in Him [either directly or by rejecting His Messenger, it is the same thing], into hellfire, and indeed He is the Almighty, witness over all their deeds, and he knows what they say and what they hold secret, and whatever their minds conceal.

Imam Qurtubi’s Tafsiir under the ayah states as such:

قوله تعالى : {إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا} أي بالله وبمحمد صلى الله عليه وسلم. {وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا} اليهود ، وهم المنتسبون إلى ملة موسى عليه السلام. {وَالصَّابِئِينَ} هم قوم يعبدون النجوم. {وَالنَّصَارَى} هم المنتسبون إلى ملة عيسى. {وَالْمَجُوسَ} هم عبد ة النيران القائلين أن للعالم أصلين : نور وظلمة. قال قتادة : الأديان خمسة ، أربعة للشيطان وواحد للرحمن.

His saying: {Indeed, the BELIEVERS} that is, in Allah and Muhammad, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, {and the jews} and they are attributed to the nation of Muusa ‘alaihis salam, {and the sabians} and they are a people who worship stars, {and the christians} they are attributed to the nation of ‘Eisa ‘alaihis salam, {and the magians} they worship fire and say that the universe has two realities: light and dark. Qatada said: There are 5 religions – 4 point to shaytan and 1 (Islam) points to Ar-Rahman.

Imam Khazen’s Tafsiir under the ayah says:

إنّ الذين آمنوا والذين هادوا والصابئين والنصارى والمجوس والذين أشركوا (يعني عبدة الأوثان وقيل الأديان ستة واحد لله وهو الإسلام وخمسة للشيطان وهو ما عدا الإسلام) إن الله يفصل بينهم (أي يحكم بينهم) يوم القيامة (وقيل يفصل بينهم في الأحوالوالأماكن جميعاً فلا يجازيهم جزاء واحداً بغير تفاوت ولا يجمعهم في موطن واحد) إنّ الله على كل شيء شهيد (أي إنه علم بما يستحقه كل واحد منهم فلا يجزي في ذلك الفصل ظلم ولا حيف وقد تقدّم بسط الكلام على معنى هذه الآية في تفسير سورة البقرة)

Indeed, the BELIEVERS, the jews, the sabians, the christians, the magians, and the idol-worshipers (that is those who worship idols, and they [i.e., scholars] say religions are 6, 1 is for Allah and that is Islam and 5 are for shaytan and that is what ever is other than Islam) , Allah will decide between them (that is judge between them) on the day of resurrection. (And they [scholars] say “decide between them” [refers to] in regards to all their states and dwellings, for they shall all not be given the same punishment without any variation, and neither will all of them be gathered in the same spot [in hellfire].) Indeed Allah is the witness over all that you do. (That is He knows what every one of them deserves and any injustice or unfairness is not possible in this judgment, and the elucidation of this matter in regards to this verse is in the tafsiir of Surah Baqarah.)

(Underlining by author)

The words of scholars speak for themselves. They have clearly said that every religion other than Islam is satanic. I do not need to mention anything else. Those satanists who try to portray christianity, judaism, buddhism, etc. as equally as beautiful as Islam, are not Muslims but hypocrites, zanaadiq, and the ugliest form of satanists.

Based on the Quran’s abundant proofs, and the words of mujtahid scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah, which state that all religions other than Islam are satanic, we can safely say that THE FALSE SUFIS – the syncretist and perennialist “sufis” – who portray other religions as being truthful and beautiful like Islam – ARE NOT SUFIS AT ALL, BUT RATHER EVIL SATANISTS.

Islam is defined by accepting the messengerhood of our Master Rasulullah, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, and all that he has brought with him. Period.  

And Allah alone grants success.

    christians insult Allah and His Messenger. I recently read one saying we worship a false god and he tells this to us with love.

    His love is cursed and he is a satan worshiper may he be cursed. This is on [snipped] forum comparitive religion section.
