Not Just Your God, or Qur’an, or Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, But Everybody’s!

God, Qur’an and Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)

God, Qur’an and Prophet, (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam). How beautiful these three words are in the English language!

And I am sure they are equally beautiful in every other language in the world.

Everybody’s or Nobody’s

But here is what everyone needs to understand about each one of them: God, Qur’an and Prophet, (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam). Each one of them is either everybody’s or nobody’s.

Does anyone see how clear this is? And how critical it is?

So, once again:

If God Is Not Everybody’s God, Then He Is Not Anybody’s God.

And If the Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, Is Not Everybody’s Prophet, Then He Is Not Anybody’s Prophet.

And If the Qur’an Is Not Everybody’s Book, Then It Is Not Anybody’s Book.

This is a simple restatement of the absolute and unconditional universality of God, the Qur’an and the Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

This Is Proof It Is From God

Right here this is proof that this architecture of ideas could only come from Allah. No human source could conceive of them that way.

Muslims have every right to say Allah is their God. And he is.

But they must know, and so must the rest of the world, that he is not a “Muslim God.”

Nor is the Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, a “Muslim Prophet,” even though he is.

Nor is the Qur’an the “Muslim Qur’an.”

Zwulm, Zwulm, Zwulm!

Now, where are the Muslims in relation to this?

Allahu Akbar, how far off the mark we have strayed. And what Zwulm – injustice and travesty – it is.

Allah is Rabbul Aalameen, and we reduce him to a “Muslim God”?

Never the Muslim Language

To tell you the truth, though, that was never the Muslim language.

This expression, “Muslim God,” is of more recent vintage. It is a quintessential non-Muslim contribution to the debate about God.

Same is the case with “Muslim Qur’an” and with “Muslim Prophet,” Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

Allah is everyone’s God.

The Qur’an is everyone’s book of guidance.

And Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, is everyone’s Rasul.

Muslims in a Lizard’s Hole

Non-Muslims started it and Muslims fell for it. And they fell flat on their faces in blindly imitating what the non-Muslims started.

Muslims followed the non-Muslims in the Lizard’s hole, just as Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, had prophesied they would.

Rahmatul Lil Aalameen: Mercy to All the Worlds

Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, is Rahmatul Lil Aalameen, Mercy to All the Worlds. And we reduce to a “Muslim Prophet”?

Zwulm, Zwulm, Zwulm!

Noor and Huda and Shifaa’

And the Qur’an, among other things, is Hudan Linnaas – Guide to All of Humanity.

And it is, at the same time, also, Noor – Light and Radiance.

And, also, Shifaa’ – Cure for All Ailments.

And we reduce all this to the “Muslim Book”?

Muslims Must Recover from This Folly

Once again, it is a travesty and an injustice – initiated by the non-Muslims but happily embraced by the Muslims.

The sooner the Muslims recover from this folly, the better it will be for them.

And for the rest of the world.
