AL-MUBĪN (المبين) The Manifest

AL-MUBAYYIN (المُّبَيِّنَٰ) The One Who Makes His Signs Clear

Linguistically, MUBIN implies something which is clear in essence and clarifies something else. AL-MUBIN is the One who is far from and above anything else in any kind of resemblance. He manifests His signs to the creation. He will make everything clear to mankind and jinn on the Day of Judgment. He clarifies the truth from falsehood in this worldly life and ultimately in the Hereafter.

Al-Haqq

AL-HAQQ (الحق) The Truth
AL-HAQQUL MUBIN (الحق المبين) The Manifest Truth

Al-Haqq is the One who is the truth, the real and the truly existing. His essence is the only substance and the only reality. He is the One whose existence is undeniable; it is the fact of all facts. He was always there, is always there and will always be there. He is the One whose essence is wisdom and justice.

Evidence/s

  • So high [above all] is Allah, the Sovereign, the Truth. And, [O Muhammad], do not hasten with [recitation of] the Holy Quran before its revelation is completed to you, and say, “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.” [Taha 20:114]
  • That is because Allah is the Truth, and that which they call upon other than Him is falsehood, and because Allah is the Most High, the Grand. [Al-Hajj 22:62]
  • In that situation the only protection is from Allah, the Real. He gives the best reward and the best outcome. [Al-Kahf 18:44]
  • That is because Allah—He is the Truth, and what you call upon besides Him is falsehood. Allah is the All-High, the Most Great. [Luqman 31:30]
  • On that Day Allah will pay them the recompense of their deeds in full, and they will know that Allah, He is the Manifest Truth. [An-Nur 24:25]
  • The Prophet (ﷺ) used to glorify our Lord, saying: “You are the Truth, Your saying is the Truth, Your promise is the Truth, and the meeting with You is the Truth, and Paradise is the Truth, and the (Hell) Fire is the Truth.” [Bukhari]

The holy Quran is AL-HAQQ

  • And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book [i.e. the Holy Quran] in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth…. [Al-Maidah 5:48]
  • And that which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], of the Book is the truth, confirming what was before it. Indeed Allah, of His servants, is Acquainted and Seeing. [Fatir 35:31]

Truth and falsehood

Follow the truth and enjoin others to do it and avoid the falsehood and warn others from doing it.

اَللّٰهُمَّ اَرِنَا الْحَقَّ حَقًّا وَّ ارْزُقْنَا اتِّبَاعَهٗ
وَاَرِنَا الْبَاطِلَ بَاطِلًا وَّارْزُقْنَا اجْتِنَابَهٗ

Transliteration
ALLAHUMMA ARINAL HAQQA HAQQAW WARZUQNAT TIBA’AH
WA ARINAL BATILA BATILAW WARZUQNAJ TINABAH

Translation
O Allah! Enable us to see the Truth as Truth and give us the ability to follow it.
And show us the falsehood as false and give us the ability to refrain from it.

Why Jesus is not god?

The Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament categorically say that God is one and ONE ONLY. You may retort: “No, He is one in three; God is three persons in one God, and Jesus is one of the three persons in One God.”

But really, was Jesus God? The answer may come as a shock to many Christians. Jesus never said he was God. Actually, he said over and over again, and in many ways, that he was not God.

Jesus was a practicing Jew, and the very idea of God taking a human form is antithetical to the Torah or the Law of Moses.

The following quote proves that Jesus was a devout and learned Jew, a Rabbi:

“Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and his reputation spread throughout the region. He was teaching in their synagogues, and all were loud in his praise. He came to Nazareth where he had been reared, and entering the synagogue on the Sabbath as he was in the habit of doing, he stood up to do the reading.” (Luke 4:14-16)

As a rabbi, what did Jesus teach? Throughout the New Testament, Jesus exhorted the people to worship God alone and keep the Mosaic commandments. The first and the best known commandment in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, asks for total and absolute devotion to God alone:

“The Lord our God is Lord alone! Therefore, you shall adore the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Mark 12:29-30) Jesus most particularly stressed this First Commandment:

The scribe said to him: “Excellent, Teacher! You are right in saying, `He is the One, there is no other than He.’ “Yes, ‘to love him with all our heart, with all our thoughts and with all our strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves’ is worth more than any burnt offering or sacrifice.”

Jesus approved the insight of his answer and told him, “You are not far from the reign of God.” (Mark 12:32-34)

Again, Jesus’ straightforward injunction to follow the First Commandment in particular, is so obvious. Significantly, he described the First Commandment as “The Great Commandment” (Mark 12:29)

For Jesus, this commandment meant more than just an injunction against worshipping idols. Jesus taught the absolute devotion to God alone: On one occasion a lawyer stood up to pose him this problem: “Teacher, what must I do to inherit everlasting life?” Jesus answered him: “What is written in the law? How do you read it?” He replied: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus said: “You have answered correctly. Do this and you shall live.” (Luke 10:25-28)

Jesus even scolded those who called him Lord: “None of those who cry out, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of God but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. When the day comes, many will plead with me, `Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? Have we not exorcised demons by its power? Did we not do many miracles in your name as well?’ Then I will declare to them solemnly, ‘I never knew you. Out of my sight, you evil doers!’ ” (Matthew 7:21-23)

Surely, when Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane he demonstrated that he was neither omnipotent nor omniscient: “Father, if it is your will, take this cup from me; yet not my will but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)

Jesus made it clear in many, many ways that he was not God, that God is greater. Nowhere is this more definitely stated than when he spoke to his disciples about his imminent departure: “If you truly loved me you would rejoice to have me go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28)

We see that throughout the Gospels, Jesus prayed to God. This certainly argues against his being God. God would not pray to Himself. There were times when Jesus felt the need to pray with special urgency. Luke reports that, on one occasion, Jesus prayed very hard: “In his anguish, Jesus prayed with all the greater intensity, and his sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.” (Luke 22:44)

One of the most compelling pieces of evidence that Jesus was not God is in the way that he taught the disciples to pray. One day he was praying in a certain place. When he had finished, one of his disciples asked him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us the wrong we have done as we forgive those who wrong us. Subject us not to the trial but deliver us from the evil one.'” (Luke 11:1-4, Matthew 6:9-13)

Note that Jesus taught us to pray to the Father, our Creator, not to himself. In fact, he did not mention himself in any way, nor did he indicate that we should pray in his name. His instructions were very specific; we are to pray to God alone. This would not be the case if Jesus himself were God.

Jesus followed the Mosaic law and did not claim divinity. According to the Bible, He was not omniscient nor omnipotent. Given the fact that nowhere in the Bible do we see a direct identification of Jesus as God, and that Jesus strongly upheld all the commandments and emphasized the First Commandment, we can only conclude that the doctrine of Jesus’ divinity has no foundation in the scripture nor in the life and teachings of Jesus. This concept is an innovation in Christian doctrine.

May the good God guide us to know the truth and make us free from all corruption. You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.

This is an invitation …

YOU ARE INVITED TO HAVE NO OTHER GOD EXCEPT THE ONE TRUE GOD WHO WAS WORSHIPED BY ABRAHAM, MOSES AND JESUS (PEACE BE UPON THEM)

Most people realized that there is Only One True God. Throughout history, this One True God has appointed many good men to tell others about Him so that humans everywhere may turn away from false gods and worship Him alone. Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them) all spoke about this One God and worshiped Him alone.

In the Gospel according to Matthew 26:39 (King James Version), we are told that Jesus fell on his face and prayed to God. And in the Gospel according to John 17:3, Jesus declares that the one he prayed to is The Only True God.

This very God speaks to us in these last days in His Final Scripture which He will safeguard from corruption. God announces in His Book good news to all those who believe in Him and do right.

He says: “Surely those who say: ‘Our Lord is Allah,’ and afterwards are upright, the angels descend upon them, saying: Fear not nor grieve, but hear glad tidings of the paradise which you are promised. We are your protecting friends in the life of the world and in the hereafter. There you will have (all) that your souls desire, and there you will have (all) for which you ask. A gift of welcome from The Forgiving, The Merciful.’” [Fussilat 41:30-32]

“Those who believe and do good works and believe in that which is revealed unto Muhammad – and is the truth from your Lord – He rids them of their ill deeds and improves their conditions. That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood and because those who believe follow the truth from their Lord.” [Muhammad 47:2]

Accept this invitation, therefore, and enjoy a life of peace and satisfaction on earth, then everlasting life in God’s paradise. The True Scripture promises all these to those who choose no other god except The One True God who was worshiped by Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them). The truth has now come to you from your Lord! Won’t you accept it?

I cannot blame you

I cannot blame you for abhorring the Muslims because most of them are not portraying ISLAM the right way. I became a Muslim not because of them but because of ISLAM. I know for certain why I left my old faith and why I embraced this new religion.

You feel sorry for me for not enjoying life; that’s in your thinking only. I enjoy every bit of PEACE in whatever situation I am in. Real life begins in the Next World, and I am busy preparing for that. I feel sorrier for you for not grasping the truth.

My duty as a MUSLIM is only to pass the message, GUIDANCE comes from Allah. There’s no compulsion in religion.

“So if they dispute with you, say: ‘I have submitted my whole self to Allah and so have those who follow me.’ And say to the People of the Book and to those who are unlearned: ‘Do you (also) submit yourselves?’ If they do, they are in Right Guidance, but if they turn back, your duty is to convey The Message; and in Allah’s sight are (all) His servants.” [The Qur’an, Surah Ali Imran 3:20]

Do not blame me and do not come near me on that DAY! I have nothing to say and cannot do anything for you.

“And fear the Day (of Judgment) when no person shall avail another, nor shall compensation be accepted from him, nor shall intercession be of use to him, nor shall they be helped.” [The Qur’an, Surah Al-Baqarah 2:123]

Seek the TRUTH

Reverts’ advice to non-Muslims…

  • It is about time to search for the TRUTH so that you will attain the true peace until the hereafter. Do NOT waste the forthcoming days because there is only a little bit time left for this world. I pray that you will discover Islam.
  • To those who have not yet embraced Islam yet, do your best to discover the religion – make some comparisons, and then decide. Belief is not enough. It should be manifested by action. I still have so much to know and learn. I always pray to God to enlighten me more and to keep guiding me to the Right Path.
  • Look at life from a different angle. Find your life through the viewpoint of Islam and you will find peace, peace in your heart, peace of mind. Be contented of what you are. Do not focus your attention on material things. We stay in this world temporarily and we die with nothing. So prepare your life not for this world but for the hereafter. Use your mind and reflect on the signs of Allah. Do some soul-searching and in no time, you will find the way. Start your search as soon as possible. Do not wait for tomorrow, because you do not know, tomorrow might be too late for you.
