Those mosques which have become devoid of the remembrance of Allah, the ones about which the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) has testified as having become abandoned and empty they refer to them as Masjids:
یَاْتِیْ عَلَی النَّاسِ زَمَانٌ لَایَبْقٰی مِنَ الْاِسْلَامِ اِلَّا اسْمُہٗ وَلَا یَبْقٰی مِنَ الْقُرْ آنِ اِلَّا رَسْمُہٗ ۔ مَسَاجِدُھُمْ عَامِرَۃٌ وَھِیَ خَرَابٌ مِّنَ الْھُدٰی ۔(مشکوٰۃ کتاب العلم فصل الثالث صفحہ38)
This is the statement of Hazrat Muhammad (sa), that a most unfortunate time is coming when all that would be left of Islam would be its name, when the Holy Quran would be there in writing alone, no attention would be paid to acting on its teachings.
You will see that their Masajid are full of people,
وَھِیَ خَرَابٌ مِّنَ الْھُدٰی
but they would be devoid of guidance and yet he, the Holy Prophet, still called them Masajid.
Then a patent claim would come forth from the Christians. The Jews have captured some patents but now a claim will be filed by the Christians. The Holy Quran says and accepts that the Christians were persecuted for the sake of their belief in One God… just as the Ahmadis today are persecuted for the same thing … and that they went underground. Then, finally, when they were given the good news that peace had been restored outside and your rights have been established; now without a doubt you can come above ground and it was argued as to what Memorable construction should be erected at that spot.. and the answer that the Holy Quran gives is that: (Surah Al-Kahf 18:22(
That those people who were in power to decide on the matter said:
[18:22] We shall erect a Masjid in their memory.
So the Christians will say that you have pointlessly started a dispute with regard to the use of the term, ‘Masjid’, this is in fact a Christian term, and the Holy Quran is a witness to the fact. How can you claim to be the inventors of this term? This shall be the petition of the Christians against the Muslims and on Bismillah, of course, the Jews have established authority, and what was left, ‘Masjid’ , well now that too has passed to the Christians.
Now what shall the mullahs make of things? Their petition shall be accepted and why would it be accepted? This is the question. On which side shall the Holy Quran be?
If we accept the rule that the Patent requests shall be filed according to the rules for patents, then, certainly the side on which the Holy Quran shall be, shall be the one that shall have to be accepted and, God forbid, the Quran shall be bearing witness against the Quran itself. So the truth is that this whole concept is totally repugnant and vulgar and objectionable. There is no patent in matters of faith. Every true believer invites everyone to every good deed and when a true believer adopts a good action he finds joy in so doing.
Now, look, there is the case of the Masjid Zarar. Up till today, everyone refers to it as Masjid Zarar. These mullahs when they give speeches regarding this topic, they still use the term ‘masjid zarar’ because the Holy Quran refers to it as Masjid:
(Surah At-Taubah 9:108( Never stand to pray therein. A mosque which was founded upon piety from the very first day is surely more worthy that thou shouldst stand to pray therein. In it are men who love to become purified, and Allah loves those who purify themselves.
This Masjid that they have made.. (Surah At-Taubah 9:107)
These are the people who have made this Masjid with the intention of supporting disbelief, and cause pain to the believers and to sow discord among the Muslims, even then it said you should not stand in this Masjid, the word Masjid is still, nevertheless used…it is not said that this is not a Masjid.
The Holy Quran is a Magnificent Book. The words of this Book display great courage and tolerance and vastness of Mercy in which it has enveloped the whole universe. No greater Charter of freedom of conscience has ever been issued by anyone than that contained in the Holy Quran. Go and study all the books of the world. The Charter of Freedom of Human Conscience that has been revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa), nothing like it will be found by you anywhere.
And insofar as the matter of non-Muslims greeting Muslims with As-salamo-Alaikum is concerned, it happened that some strangers, out of fear of the Muslims, when they walked by them, they greeted the Muslims with As-salamo-Alaikum… and when some Muslims reacted by saying that they want to deceive us into thinking that they are Muslims, the Quran told them to not behave in that manner. From heaven, Allah caused to descend the teaching:
Say not to anyone who greets you with the greeting of peace, ‘Thou art not a believer.’ (Surah An-Nisa 4:95)
That, look, whoever says Salam to you, you do not have the right to say to such a one that you are not a believer.
You seek the goods of this life,…by getting a hold of these people who belong to a people who are opposed to you and because you think they are doing this just to save themselves, not only has the Quran given them security against harm but by mentioning the greeting: as-salamo-alaikum has given them the right to use this greeting if they should so wish and has in its shade given them the right to save themselves by its use.
Yet, the mullahs still insist on saying that these people want to deceive the Muslims by showing themselves to be Muslims by use of this greeting.
I ask them where have you gotten this Islam? You do not understand what Islam is. This is the teaching of Allah. Allah knows best, and such incidents have come to pass in earlier times also. This is nothing new that you are presenting to us…to all such things there is an answer in the Holy Quran.
The fact of the matter now is that almost everything seems to result in blasphemy of prophethood. If any Government official says anything against the Sharia Court this results in blasphemy of Prophethood.
Now these mullahs have become God also. They have become the Prophet of Allah. If you raise a hand against them then this is considered tantamount to raising a hand against the Messenger of Allah, God forbid us from saying this!Look at their mode of life, their morals. These are the people who repulse.
Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, captured one, drew a person to himself in an extraordinary way. Whoever saw him, fell in love with him, the Promised Messiah (as) says:
اگر خواہی دلیلی عاشقش باش
محمدؐ ھست برھان محمدؐ
Why do you ask for a verifying argument, or sign, in support of the truth of Muhammad, Muhammad himself, is proof of his own beauty so ’عاشقش باش‘ fall in love with Muhammad.
محمدؐ ھست برھان محمدؐ
Muhammad is proof of Muhammad himself. May Allah give them understanding
