Hold the heart and soul of the Qur'n right in front of their faces
Hi Haridev S V,
i can see that you are in a lot of pain and perhaps there are many millions who feel the same. In fact the vast majority of religious followers daily live with such pain, albeit much lesser. The reason they feel much less is because they never have to answer questions that can rip through their core beliefs. It is so easy to mingle with your own herd. The larger it is the more secure one feels.
But if you think you have those questions in "Why We Critique Only Islam!" you are absolutely wrong. You have not yet realized what the heart and soul of the Qur'n is. i have realized that Islamic theologians are able to justify the absurd, and that is why Muslims will not give a damn to your rant. The only way is to hold the heart and soul of the Qur'n right in front of their face, and declare they cannot refute the truth of Qiyamah.
For example, Shri Mataji has declared:
"But the Muslims do not want to talk about Resurrection (Al Qadr: The Night of Power) at all because they want to frighten people with the Doomsday (Al Qariah: Day of Noise and Clamor). They don't want to talk about the Resurrection Time which is going to come, which is the intermediary time, because they want to use the time which will frighten people by saying that: 'Now your Doomsday is coming! Now your Doomsday is coming!'"
To give evidence of Shri Mataji's claim that Muslims are putting their heads in the sand the http://www.al-qiyamah.org has been set up. Al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection) is the heart and soul of the Qur'n and Muslims will never be able to challenge it, even though their theologians are capable of explaining and justifying the absurd.
There are a number of ways to silence them, and Shri Mataji again ripped their core belief to pieces with this devastating statement:
"But these are special time, the Blossom Time. They call it the Last Judgment, you can call it the Resurrection Time, you can call it the Qiyamah, they call it in Koran. It is said that people will come out of their graves and will get their Resurrection. I mean what is left to the graves is nothing but a few stones and a few bones. No. All these souls which are dead will take their birth, take human body and take their Realization in these special times. This is a sensible thing to say and is also happening.”
But if one follows the Islamic scholars version of 'graves opening up', we beg for logical answers to the following questions:
1) How will the millennia-old buried remains be collected together and 'raised up again' during the Resurrection into perfect beings, a disbelieve rampant even centuries ago?
2) What about the cremated dust of billions of beings that have been scattered over the seven seas, and recycled back by nature into the atoms that are now part and parcel of you and me?
3) What about the millions lost and digested by the sea, or those eaten by animals and scavengers, and their remains scattered all over the land?
4) And how will the countless headless, limbless skeletons of wars and genocide be assembled together and brought to life during the Resurrection?
5) What about those who knew next to nothing about Islam, like the two million Cambodians who lost their lives during Pol Pot's reign of terror?
6) What about the millions dying daily upon birth?
"Some two million babies born every year in the developing world die on the first day of their lives, the Save the Children charity has said. (BBC, 9 May 2006)
Over two million die of diarrhea annually in Nigeria. (UNICEF 8 October 2005)
BANGALORE: As many as 1.2 million new-born babies die in a month due to lack of proper care and access to medical facility, Dr N Karthik Nagesh, neonatologist, and Director (Paeditric Research), Manipal Hospital, said on Tuesday. (Tuesday, November 21, 2006 15:50 IST) A non-governmental organization Food Aid International (FAI) has said that about 3,000 people die daily of hunger and poverty in Nigeria, Africa's most populous country. (The Punch reported Monday. March 01, 2004)
Every day, more than 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes— one child every five seconds. State of Food Insecurity in the World 2005. (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.)
7) How about those cremated, a ritual widely practiced for millennia by Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs. "Beliefs differ among Christian groups; some, such as Protestants, have no objections, while others, particularly Roman Catholics, generally frown on the practice because they see it conflicting with their belief in the resurrection of the body.”
8) What about all those born before the advent of Prophet Muhammad, and those after, who never were Muslims and make up roughly 90% of the total humans born on Earth since creation? Does the Day of Judgment apply to these non-Muslims?
9) What Truth about the Resurrection must Allah manifest to those who, after having died over the centuries, are 'raised up' (brought back to live by rebirth) during the Resurrection?
"They swear their strongest oaths by Allah, that Allah will not raise up those who die: Nay, but it is a promise (binding) on Him in truth: But most among mankind realise it not.
(They must be raised up), In order that He may manifest to them, The truth of that wherein they differ,
And that the rejecters of Truth, may realise that they had indeed (surrendered to) Falsehood.
For to anything which We have willed, We but say the word,"
surah 16:38-40 Al Nahl (The Bees)
A. Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, 1989.
10) Why does Allah insist that humans beings"must be raise up, in order that He may manifest to them the truth of that wherein they differ"during the Resurrection, if the terror and mayhem of the dreaded Doomsday is at its height?
11) Why does Allah insist that the rejecters of Al-Qiyamah"must be raise up, in order that ... the rejecters of Truth, may realise that they had indeed (surrendered to) Falsehood", if all around mountains are crashing and skies rent asunder? What is the point of this absolutely futile exercise? Why do Islamic scholars indulge in such satanic lies and delude the Believers away from the Straight Path?
12) How is Allah going to explain to all humans, especially Jews, Christians and Muslims, about"The truth of that wherein they differ" which, as far as religion is concerned, requires months and years of meticulous cross-examination and critical appraisal? Do fools, idiots and fundamentalists think these centuries-old differences are going to be ironed out during a brief Friday sermon or Sunday mass?
13) Will Allah appear in Person or send His Ruh to clarify"The truth of that wherein they differ", so that all religious regimes and their blind followers are amply warned?
14) Has His Ruh Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi already"manifest to them the truth of that wherein they differ"over the last 30 years so"that the rejecters of Truth may realise that they had indeed (surrendered to) Falsehood"?
15) Why is the pre-ordained Qiyamah of His Ruh so full of hope, promise, peace, love and healing, and aptly called the Night of Power and Honour (The Holy Qur'n, 97:1-5 Al Qadr) in the Qur'n? It is because all humans since creation began, barring none whosoever, are given the right to take part in the Resurrection. All souls who lived on Earth, no matter how briefly or ignorantly, will be told/warned of the Resurrection and given a chance to follow the Straight Path
But Shri Mataji warns the same to Jews and Christians too:
"There are lots of myths in the Bible and one of them is that at the Time of Resurrection your bodies will come out of the graves. This is not only for Christians, but also for the Muslims and Jews. Think of this - What remains in the grave after many years? Only a few bones. And if these bones came out how can you give them Realization? Think of it. It is a big myth. Not possible logically.
In Nal Damyanti Akhyan they have clearly given that when the Kalyug will come, all these seekers who are seeking in the hills and mountains will be born again, and they will be given their Self- Realization! Their Kundalinis will be awakened and that is logical, because that is what we are doing today.”
So Haridev S V, you have to know the heart and soul of other religions, and your own too, to destroy all that is false. The reason i am saying your own is because most Hindus too are ignorant of the heart and soul of Hinduism, albeit to a far lesser extend.
Only when you realize the collective eschatological truth of all the religions, which Shri Mataji calls the Blossom Time, will you be rid of all the pain and anguish. When all religions, prophets and holy scriptures are accepted, how will you feel hatred for anyone? On the contrary, you will know how falsehood and blind faith keeps religious followers blissfully ignorant. You will never want to follow any religion again, no matter how righteously loud they declare their faith to be.
And where Islam is concerned you do have valid points to criticize and question why it makes some of their followers so violent and murderous in comparison to other faiths. But on the other hand, why follow any religion in the first place as their preachers will make you ignore, despise or condemn the rest? Why do you think Shri Mataji keeps insisting that until and unless your get your Self-realization it is no use following any religion?
And when you do get your Self-realization there is no religion to follow! Hard to believe but true.
regards to all,
Why We Critique Only Islam!
Frequently we are facing one common accusation from the Islamists, semi-Islamists and even from the moderate (ignorant) Muslims which is why only critiquing Islam and why not critiquing also other religions? This is of course a very prudent question. And this question needs to be answered by the group of critics. Critics may think that enough have been discussed about the fallacies of Islam everywhere in the whole world. By now every simple mind should understand very well as to why we only critique Islam! But I am not surprised by the question, because we must know that childhood brainwashing of those moderate Muslims and utter hypocrisies of those erudite Islamists they mostly fail to realize the truth simply due to their sheer blind-faith in Islam.
In this essay, I would like to make a hypothetical comparison between the Islam and all other major religions of the world. I shall try to establish the very unique and special character of the religion Islam by an honest and impartial judgment. I shall attempt to answer this very prudent question by my own style. That is, I will generate the right answers from the mouth of those questioners themselves. Instead of answering this question, let me ask those Islamists, moderate Muslims and others the following questions:
America has a super plural society having many religions (Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jews, Buddha's etc). Every day, every hour or every minute we are sick and tired of hearing in the radio, TV, or newspapers some very common (colorful) adjectives, such as: Muslim militants, Muslim terrorists, Islamic terrorists, Islamic radicals, and Islamic militants, Islamic fanatics, Al-Qeada, and Taliban. My question is that, why do not we hear about terrorists or radicals of any other religions? Why do not we hear these kind of ear-soothing colorful adjectives about those millions of atheists, agnostics or even Homosexual guys? Why it is always attached with the peaceful (?) ISLAM?
In the North America and throughout the western world there are hundreds of societies bearing the name of only one religion and that is ISLAM. Examples: AMC, AMA, NABIC, ICNA, ISNA, CAIR etc. etc. There are hundreds of Ummatic organizations/societies throughout the North America and elsewhere in the whole world. Ummatic organizations mostly preach segregation/isolation of Muslims from other peoples in general in the host countries. They teach Muslims that they are superior and their religion is superior and ask to guard their children from mixing with the western rotten society. As a result, future generations of Muslims can not blend with the society of host country resulting isolationists and problematic youngsters in an alien society. Ultimate result is the scenario of item# 13 below. In this, I have many questions: How many Ummatic organizations for Hindu, Christian or Jews can we find? Why no such organization is needed by any other religions? Why only the people of Muslim origin need such Ummatic organization? What is the purpose of such organization?
Can we find Jihadi organization in any other religions such: Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hizbullah, Horkut-ul- Jihad, Horkut-ul-mujahedin, Jaise Muhamad, Jihad-e-Muhammad, Tahrik-e-Nifaj-shariaat-e-Muhammad, Al- Hikhma, Al-badr-Mujaheddin, Jamah-e-Islamia, Hijb-e-Islamia, etc. etc.??? We can find several dozens of Jihadi Islamic terrorist organizations exists in every Muslim country throughout the world. Can we find such organization in other religions? If not, then why?
We can find dozens of countries ruled by Islamic Shariaat (Huhud laws) where Quran is the only viable constitution. Remaining Muslim majority countries also have family laws enforced as per Quranic laws. We can still find many Islamic Republics exist in this modern world of 21st century. My questions here are: Can we find any country ruled by Bible, Old Testament or Ghita today? Can we find just one Republic for Christian, Jewish, Hindus or Buddhas? If the answer is no, then please tell us why no?
Islam has become a fearful religion in the whole world today. Islamic terrorists are conspiring to kill innocent civilians, especially western civilians everywhere in the whole world. Whole civilized world is in a panic situation for fear of Islamic terrorism. Very recently, German police have arrested an al-Qaeda sympathizer and his fiance on suspicion of planning to bomb the U.S. Army's European headquarters and other targets in Heidelberg, Germany. Interestingly these arrested al-Qaeda sympathizers were none but Muslims who kept pictures of Osama bin Laden in their apartment. My questions are: why could not these two human beings belonging Hindu, Jew or Christian? Why can't we incriminate any other religion for the similar cause?
Honor killing is the most inhuman and most disgraceful act by any human standard. This act is condemned by any sane human being today. But surprisingly"This horrendous episode is only present in the Muslim countries and Muslim societies. Islamists will argue that there is nothing in the Quran which suggests honor killing! Well, question here is, if Islam has nothing to do with it, then why it is only practiced by Muslims? NO OTHER SOCIETIES EXCEPT ISLAM PRACTICE IT, PERIOD. Even in the same country example Nigeria, Northern Nigerian (Muslims) do practice this heinous act, but Southern Nigeria (Christians) do not practice this at all. It may present in any country in the whole world but 100% sure that it will happened only in a Muslim family. My questions here are please tell me why Muslims only perform this heinous act? Why this act is totally absent in any other religions?
Today in the whole world Muslims are apologetic to the entire humankind for the shameful terrorisms and constantly trying to erase this stigma by various apologetic fruitless arguments and excuses. They are trying very hard to disown Osam Bin Laden and other Islamic terrorists by saying "Islam has been hijacked" etc. Very recently, ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) held four days full-fledged program in the Washington, D.C. to disown the burden of doubt in Islam by using same-old apologetic slogans "Islam is a religion of peace" or "Prophet Muhammad is the God's mercy to earth" etc. These Islamists of North America also tried to fool the westerners (may be they fooled themselves ) by quoting a few good/kind Quranic verses. They all simply blamed Western Media for projecting Islam as the religion of terrorism. With much hypocrisy they absolutely hide all those hundreds of hateful/dreadful Quranic verses. My question here is why any other religionists do not need to do all these hypocrisies like Islamists are doing today?
"Jihad" is the most fearful and despised word spoken/uttering throughout the whole world today. This famous word "Jihad" belongs to one religion, and that is Islam. My question is why Jihad belongs to only Islam?
Suicide-bombing only to kill innocent human beings is committed by Muslims only. In Palestine-Israeli conflict hundreds of incidents of such heinous suicide attempts have occurred so far. It was quite obvious that all these suicide bombers were brainwashed by the fiery inspirational teachings by Islamic clergy citingvarious Quranic dictums and hadiths. Among the Palestine citizens there are good percentage of Christian minority who support Palestinian cause and they are also enemy of Israel. Surprisingly, not a single suicide bomber could be found who was a Christian. My questions here are why there was no suicide bomber evolved out of those Christian- born Palestinians? Why it is the only Muslims committing this horrendous act of suicide bombing?
Mosque-Islamic center connections: all most every terrorist arrested or identified so far, they obviously (without fail) belonged to some Mosque or Islamic center. It was quite apparent that the terrorists arrested or dead was later identified as the member/visitor of certain famous Mosque or Islamic center. In most cases"Muslims attacked their rivals after the Friday prayers, because the fiery sermons of the Imam of the Mosque energize these fanatics. My questions here are"If Islam and Mosque has nothing to do with terrorists then why they could not be belonged to some other religious center such as Hindu Temple, Jewish Temple, Buddhist temple or Christian church? Or why they could not be even the members of some atheists/agnostic/homosexual clubs?
Pure (Pukka) Muslims: all most all the terrorists (John walker Lind, Zakaria Moussai, Padia etc.) so far arrested or known to the authority are very pure and devoutly good practicing bearded Muslims. Just last week, Swedish authority has arrested one suspected terrorist from onboard an aircraft who attempted to hijack the plane and crash it to the American Embassy in the Western Europe. Later he was identified as the bearded young Tunisian born devout Muslim by the name Kerim shatty who wanted to go to join the Islamic conference in London. My questions are: Why they (terrorists) could not be from some moderate or not so good Muslim group? Why always terrorist have to be one of those most devout pukka Muslims? What possibly is the obvious indication here? Isn't it true that any true followers (real Muslim who follows Quran and hadiths) of Islam could be a terrorist?
Converts: we know conversion to other religion is a common phenomenon throughout the world. Many people convert to Islam, Christianity, Buddhism etc. My questions are why it is only those Muslim converts turn into terrorists or Taliban (American Taliban, Shoe-bomber and dirty bomber suspect"They all are converted Muslims)? Why any other converts (Hindu or Christian) could not be a Taliban or terrorist?
Clash of immigrants with the host: very recently, there were riots between the immigrant British citizens and the host Britons. Surprisingly those immigrant British citizens were none other than the Muslim immigrants (mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi). Britain has the immigrants from various countries and various religions. My question here is why those rioting-immigrants could not be from any other religions?
Dress code and food restriction: Do you know Islam has a special dress code for both men and women? Islam is nothing but Arab nationalism in the disguise of religion. Anybody from any foreign land convert to Islam also needs to adopt/change his dress and cultural habits, which is nothing but Arab national dress and Arab culture. A devout Bangladeshi, Chinese or a Burmese convert to Islam will pretend to be a good Muslim by wearing Arab garb or hijab for women, even though his/her own national dress is not at all similar to Arab national dress. Muslims also follow very strict food codes. Unlike other religious groups, Muslims can not eat western most hygienically produced meat products. Muslims need to eat so called un- hygienically produced halal meat. Convert Muslims even need to learn Arabic for daily rituals of Islam. They are not allowed to pray in their own mother tongue. Result is they do not know what they are praying. But unlike Muslim convert, Hindu, Christian or Jewish converts do not need to forsake their own national dress code or languages. My questions here are why the converts of no other religions need to change their own national dress code or food habits? Why Islam is so different?
Coercive imposition: Islam is the only religion in which peoples are being forced/coerced to observe Islamic daily rituals. In any Islamic paradise"like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Talibani Afghanistan, or any other Islamic Arab countries"Islamic police (Muttawalli) force general citizens to observe daily rituals very strictly. Anybody who fails to obey is punished by beating severely or even by imprisonment. Even in the moderate Muslim countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia etc. Clergies, general public or the elders will repeatedly remind or even force people to join the daily five time prayers/rituals of Islam. Anybody who do not join or refuse to join will be cursed, looked down or insulted by the seniors. Punishments for the crime: Punishments for the crime (like stealing, adultery, killings etc.) in Islamic paradise (Saudi Arabia, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sudan and many other Arab nations) according to Allah's laws (Islamic Shariaat or hudud laws) are cutting/chopping hands, feet and even chopping heads, or stoning death and lashings one hundred and one times. My questions here are: could we find such ancient uncivilized/draconian laws in any other religions today? If the answer is no, then please tell us why?
Brotherhood in Islam: Islam is the only religion having brotherhood or Ummatic provision. One muslim is considered brother of another muslim only. A muslim can not be a brother of Hindu, Christian or Jews or infidels. Muslims are forbidden even to pray for any infidels. Therefore, Islam is like a large-scale religious cult which does not recognize any other religion as pure religion. My question here is why no other religious group has such separatist brotherhood system?
Islam and poverty: Poverty and Islam goes side by side. Islam means submission to Allah. Therefore, general muslims become like a dependent servant of unseen authority in the sky. Muslims loose their strength and desire of freethinking and innovation. Result is pure poverty. Look everywhere"muslims are the most poor human beings on earth. Go to Africa or Asia"every muslim majority country is a desperately poor country. Please don't try to cite some Arab oil-rich countries as the denial to my assertion. Because, that happened only due to the discovery of oil by the west"such as America and Britain. Before that, all the Arabs were miserably poor country. Muslims are poor even in a same country or region: In Nigeria"northern (Muslim majority) people are poor, but southern (Christian majority) people are rich and affluent. In Europe"only two most poor countries are Bosnia and Albania. Both of these European countries are populated by convert Muslims of same Caucasian white peoples. But they are poorer than their neighbors. My question here is why it has to be always like that?
Muslim World: Do you know we have two worlds in the same planet earth? One is the real world (with every nation except the Islamic nations) and other is the Muslim world (with all the Islamic nations only). Surprisingly, there is no Christian world, no Hindu world or any Jewish world, Buddies world or infidel world. But we have Muslim world. My question here is: why there is no Christian, Hindu, Buddies or Jewish world?
Democracy: Democracy was invented to establish people's rules to govern a nation. Entire mankind know it well that no religious edicts/rules can be compatible with the modern democracy. But do you know"Islamists make their laughable claim that," Islam is compatible with the democracy"? Islam is 100% incompatible with the democracy; even then Islamists readily claim that"Islam is compatible with democracy"! My question here is: do we hear about Christian, Hindu or Jewish democracy?
September 11, Episode: America and other nations of the entire world will remember Sept.11 as the most terrible day of the human history and everybody will pass the day with much sorrow and somber mood. But do you know there are some Islamic folks (special human species) in Finsbury Park Mosque in north London who will celebrate this horrible day as the"towering day"of Islam??? These Islamic fanatics will hail/applaud the Sept.11 devilish deeds of those al-Qaeda heroes as the best deeds any Muslim can do. They will form the supreme Islamic council of London and will vow to fight for making England an Islamic Paradise. Their future plan will be to convert entire world including infidel America into a perfect Islamic Paradise. My questions are: do we get to see this kind of madness amongst any other religions? If not then why?
