Obeying God and His messengers

God tells us in the Quran that we must obey God and His messenger if we have to be successful. We all have egos and that is why we are here. God sends a messenger so we can kill our egos and go back to God. People may call us Rashadians , but we must follow God’s order in order to be redeemed.

[49:1]  O you who believe, do not place your opinion above that of GOD and His messenger. You shall reverence GOD. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.

 [49:2] O you who believe, do not raise your voices above the voice of the prophet,* nor shall you shout at him as you shout at each other, lest your works become nullified while you do not perceive.

[49:3]  Surely, those who lower their voices at the messenger of GOD are the ones whose hearts are prepared by GOD to become righteous.* They have deserved forgiveness and a great recompense.

   *49:3 Respecting the messenger helps outsiders and visitors in coming to God’s message.

It is talking about Mohammad , however,  the reason it is in the Quran is for us to learn from it.
[33:57]  Surely, those who oppose GOD and His messenger, GOD afflicts them with a curse in this life, and in the Hereafter; He has prepared for them a shameful retribution.

 [3:32]  Proclaim: “You shall obey GOD and the messenger.” If they turn away, GOD does not love the disbelievers.
[3:132]  You shall obey GOD and the messenger, that you may attain mercy.
God Communicates With Us Through His Messenger
[4:13]  These are GOD’s laws. Those who obey GOD and His messenger, He will admit them into gardens with flowing streams, wherein they abide forever. This is the greatest triumph.

Equality of Believers

[4:69]  Those who obey GOD and the messenger belong with those blessed by GOD – the prophets, the saints, the martyrs, and the righteous. These are the best company.
[8:1]  They consult you about the spoils of war. Say, “The spoils of war belong to GOD and the messenger.” You shall observe GOD, exhort one another to be righteous, and obey GOD and His messenger, if you are believers.
[8:20]  O you who believe, obey GOD and His messenger, and do not disregard him while you hear.
[8:46]  You shall obey GOD and His messenger, and do not dispute among yourselves, lest you fail and scatter your strength. You shall steadfastly persevere. GOD is with those who steadfastly persevere.
The Winners
[9:71]  The believing men and women are allies of one another. They advocate righteousness and forbid evil, they observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and they obey GOD and His messenger. These will be showered by GOD’s mercy. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.
[24:52]  Those who obey GOD and His messenger, and reverence GOD and observe Him, these are the triumphant ones.
[33:33]  You shall settle down in your homes, and do not mingle with the people excessively, like you used to do in the old days of ignorance. You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and obey GOD and His messenger. GOD wishes to remove all unholiness from you, O you who live around the Sacred Shrine, and to purify you completely.

[33:71]  He will then fix your works, and forgive your sins. Those who obey GOD and His messenger have triumphed a great triumph.

Muslim  vs  Mu’men

[49:14]  The Arabs said, “We are Mu’mens (believers).” Say, “You have not believed; what you should say is, `We are Muslims (submitters),’ until belief is established in your hearts.” If you obey GOD and His messenger, He will not put any of your works to waste. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
[64:12]  You shall obey GOD and you shall obey the messenger. If you turn away, then the sole mission of our messenger is to deliver the message.
[72:23]  “I deliver GOD’s proclamations and messages.” Those who disobey GOD and His messenger incur the fire of Hell, wherein they abide forever.

    They Think That They Are Believers

[4:145]  The hypocrites will be committed to the lowest pit of Hell, and you will find no one to help them.

The only cure is to repent , reform and believe.

[4:146]  Only those who repent, reform, hold fast to GOD, and devote their religion absolutely to GOD alone, will be counted with the believers. GOD will bless the believers with a great recompense.

The truth is that Satan does not want any submitter to follow God and His servant , Rashad who was sent by GOD to deliever it! Satan is trying his very best to repel the people and prevent them from benefitting from God’s words and is hoping that we lose the teachings God sent through His messengers and the guidance that came with them. God sends scripture and wisdom and clarifying teachings through his messenger.

Rashad has “uttered” teachings(81: 19) and “recited (98:2)” for us sacred instructions. He shall be obeyed and trusted(81:21) no matter how he utters it or when he utters it and what medium he uses to utter it or recite it. This is God’s command. God did not prohibit any mediums of propagation and dissemination of God’s message. Everything is in accordance with God’s will.

  God’s Messenger of the Covenant

[81:15] I solemnly swear by the galaxies.
[81:16] Precisely running in their orbits.
[81:17] By the night as it falls.
[81:18] And the morn as it breathes.
[81:19] This is the  utterance  of an honorable messenger.*

*81:19 By adding the sura number, plus the verse number, plus the gematrical value of the name “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), we get 1330, 19×70. This provides Quranic mathematical proof that this messenger is Rashad Khalifa.

[81:20] Authorized by the Possessor of the Throne, fully supported.
[81:21] He shall be obeyed and trusted.

[98:1] Those who disbelieved among the people of the scripture, as well as the idol worshipers, insist on their ways, despite the proof given to them.*

[98:2] A messenger from GOD is reciting  to them sacred instructions. *

…. The No. of sura (98), plus the verse No. (2), plus the numerical value of “Rashad Khalifa” (1230), add up to 1330 (19×70), the same total as in 81:19 (App.2).

[98:3] In them there are valuable teachings.
[98:4] In fact, those who received the scripture did not dispute until the proof was given to them.
[98:5] All that was asked of them was to worship GOD, devoting the religion absolutely to Him alone, observe the contact prayers (Salat), and give the obligatory charity (Zakat). Such is the perfect religion.
[98:6] Those who disbelieved among the people of the scripture, and the idol worshipers, have incurred the fire of Gehenna forever. They are the worst creatures.
[98:7] Those who believed and led a righteous life are the best creatures.
[98:8] Their reward at their Lord is the gardens of Eden with flowing streams, wherein they abide forever. GOD is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. Such is the reward for those who reverence their Lord.

God’s messengership is an essential test
Messengership: An Essential Test 

[17:94] What prevented the people from believing when the guidance came to them, is their saying, “Did GOD send a human being as a messenger?”

Rashad would not propagate Hadith and Sunna. He used all forms of media including print, radio and TV to spread God’s message .

The truth is that if we are submitters – in the true sense of the word, we would never disdain from following any of God’s commands and teachings that he sent for us through another human being.

Satan is an objector – a rebel. We can either wrong our souls and worship our egos and follow our own opinions or we can obey God and His messenger and grow our souls. We can either chose to be with God and submit to the fact that God’s truth has prevailed or turn into an objector and side with Satan.  The choice is in our hands – to be with God or to be with Satan. We can either submit willingly or unwillingly. Let us not waste our final chance and use it wisely and ask God to guide us in the right path and kill our egos.

[2:54] Recall that Moses said to his people, “O my people, you have wronged your souls by worshiping the calf. You must repent to your Creator. You shall kill your egos. This is better for you in the sight of your Creator.” He did redeem you. He is the Redeemer, Most Merciful.

   *2:54 It is the ego that led to Satan’s fall. It is the ego that caused our exile to this world, and it is the ego that is keeping most of us from redemption to God’s Kingdom.
May God guide us all in the right path and allow us to grow our souls.
[1:6]  Guide us in the right path;
[1:7]  the path of those whom You blessed; not of those who have deserved wrath, nor of the strayers.

It is God’s system that He sends clarifying messengers.

  The Messenger’s Language

[14:4]  We did not send any messenger except (to preach) in the tongue of his people, in order to clarify things for them. GOD then sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise.

It is amazing how Satan adorns people’s work in their eyes and they think they are guided!

[35:8]  Note the one whose evil work is adorned in his eyes, until he thinks that it is righteous. GOD thus sends astray whoever wills (to go astray), and He guides whoever wills (to be guided). Therefore, do not grieve over them. GOD is fully aware of everything they do.

[7:175] Recite for them the news of one who was given our proofs, but chose to disregard them. Consequently, the devil pursued him, until he became a strayer.
[7:176]  Had we willed, we could have elevated him therewith, but he insisted on sticking to the ground, and pursued his own opinions. Thus, he is like the dog; whether you pet him or scold him, he pants. Such is the example of people who reject our proofs. Narrate these narrations, that they may reflect.

[2:143] We thus made you an impartial community, that you may serve as witnesses among the people, and the messenger serves as a witness among you. We changed the direction of your original Qiblah only to distinguish those among you who readily follow the messenger from those who would turn back on their heels. It was a difficult test, but not for those who are guided by GOD. GOD never puts your worship to waste. GOD is Compassionate towards the people, Most Merciful.

[11:18] Who are more evil than those who fabricate lies about GOD? They will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, “These are the ones who lied about their Lord. GOD’s condemnation has befallen the transgressors.”

[18:57] Who are more evil than those who are reminded of their Lord’s proofs, then disregard them, without realizing what they are doing. Consequently, we place shields on their hearts to prevent them from understanding it (the Quran), and deafness in their ears. Thus, no matter what you do to guide them, they can never ever be guided.

[5:41]O you messenger, do not be saddened by those who hasten to disbelieve among those who say, “We believe,” with their mouths, while their hearts do not believe. Among the Jews, some listened to lies. They listened to people who never met you, and who distorted the words out of context, then said, “If you are given this, accept it, but if you are given anything different, beware.” Whomever GOD wills to divert, you can do nothing to help him against GOD. GOD does not wish to cleanse their hearts. They have incurred humiliation in this world, and in the Hereafter, they will suffer a terrible retribution

[24:46]  We have sent down to you clarifying revelations, then GOD guides whoever wills (to be guided) in a straight path.
[24:47]They say, “We believe in GOD and in the messenger, and we obey,” but then some of them slide back afterwards. These are not believers.
[24:48]  When they are invited to GOD and His messenger to judge among them, some of them get upset.
[24:49]  However, if the judgment is in their favor, they readily accept it!
[24:50]  Is there a disease in their hearts? Are they doubtful? Are they afraid that GOD and His messenger may treat them unfairly? In fact, it is they who are unjust.

     Believers Unhesitatingly Obey
God and His Messenger

[24:51]  The only utterance of the believers, whenever invited to GOD and His messenger to judge in their affairs, is to say, “We hear and we obey.” These are the winners.
[24:52]  Those who obey GOD and His messenger, and reverence GOD and observe Him, these are the triumphant ones.
[24:53]  They swear by GOD, solemnly, that if you commanded them to mobilize, they would mobilize. Say, “Do not swear. Obedience is an obligation. GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do.”
[24:54]  Say, “Obey GOD, and obey the messenger.” If they refuse, then he is responsible for his obligations, and you are responsible for your obligations. If you obey him, you will be guided. The sole duty of the messenger is to deliver (the message).


God’s Promise
Kings and Queens on Earth

[24:55]  GOD promises those among you who believe and lead a righteous life, that He will make them sovereigns on earth, as He did for those before them, and will establish for them the religion He has chosen for them, and will substitute peace and security for them in place of fear. All this because they worship Me alone; they never set up any idols beside Me. Those who disbelieve after this are the truly wicked.

  

   Formula for Success

[24:56]  You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and obey the messenger, that you may attain mercy.

As God’s messenger pointed out in this Newsletter , as it was inspired to him directly from Gabriel, only  those who stand with God’s messenger like Noah and his people will be saved . You can read it here.

[47:25]Surely, those who slide back, after the guidance has been manifested to them, the devil has enticed them and led them on.
People strive to fight against God and His messenger with their personal opinion on emails, blogs, websites . Some of them write books, videos, etc spend lots of money and distort God’s message,

 [2:79]  Therefore, woe to those who distort the scripture with their own hands, then say, “This is what GOD has revealed,” seeking a cheap material gain. Woe to them for such distortion, and woe to them for their illicit gains.

     God’s Messenger of the Covenant

[22:49]  Say, “O people, I have been sent to you as a profound warner.”*

   *22:49 This command is directed specifically to God’s Messenger of the Covenant. This fact, and the specific name of the messenger are mathematically coded into the Quran. See the details, together with the irrefutable proofs, in Appendices 2 and 26.
[22:50]  Those who believe and lead a righteous life have deserved forgiveness and a generous recompense.

[22:51]  As for those who strive to challenge our revelations, they incur Hell.

     God’s Messenger of the Covenant

[5:19]  O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you, to explain things to you, after a period of time without messengers, lest you say, “We did not receive any preacher or warner.” A preacher and warner has now come to you. GOD is Omnipotent.*

   *….By adding the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), plus the value of “Khalifa” (725), plus the sura number (5), plus the verse number (19), we obtain a total of 505+725+5+19 = 1254, or 19×66. Nineteen is the Quran’s common denominator, which was revealed through Rashad Khalifa. More evidence and specific details are in Appendix Two.

Some people fail to distinguish between obeying the messenger and idolizing the messenger like Jesus or Mohammad and such hypocrites accuse the believers of Idol worship. Or the difference between following the message sent by God  verses fabricated hadith and Sunnah by human and Jinn devils [6:112].

The Mohammadan idolize mohammad by mentioning him in his prayer and intercession. Christians think Jesus is God or son of God and believe he is their savior.  Both groups follow fabrications attributed to God which are not FROM Jesus or Mohammad. So they are blocked  completely from understanding the Quran.

[56:79] None can grasp it except the sincere.*

Such people are enemies of God and of  His messengers and all the believers

[60:1]  O you who believe, you shall not befriend My enemies and your enemies, extending love and friendship to them, even though they have disbelieved in the truth that has come to you. They persecute the messenger, and you, just because you believe in GOD, your Lord. If you mobilize to struggle in My cause, seeking My blessings, how can you secretly love them? I am fully aware of everything you conceal, and everything you declare. Those among you who do this have indeed strayed off the right path.

The System*

[22:52]  We did not send before you any messenger, nor a prophet, without having the devil interfere in his wishes. GOD then nullifies what the devil has done. GOD perfects His revelations. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.*

     The Hypocrites Drop Out

[22:53]  He thus sets up the devil’s scheme as a test for those who harbor doubts in their hearts, and those whose hearts are hardened. The wicked must remain with the opposition.

   *22:52 Throughout this worldly test, Satan is allowed to present his point of view (we are born with a representative of Satan in our bodies). This allows the people to make a choice between God’s evidence and Satan’s evidence. Satan’s evidence is invariably based on lies. This system explains the fact that the devil’s agents continuously come up with the most absurd lies, insults and accusations against every messenger (see 6:33-34, 8:30, 17:76-77, 27:70).
[6:112] We have permitted the enemies of every prophet – human and jinn devils – to inspire in each other fancy words, in order to deceive. Had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and their fabrications.

These people mislead others and develop a following – strayers just like them who follow them

     The Followers Turn On Their Leaders

[33:64]  GOD has condemned the disbelievers, and has prepared for them Hell.
[33:65]  Eternally they abide therein. They will find no lord, nor a supporter.
[33:66]  The day they are thrown into Hell, they will say, “Oh, we wish we obeyed GOD, and obeyed the messenger.”

[33:70]  O you who believe, reverence GOD and utter only the correct utterances.
[33:71]  He will then fix your works, and forgive your sins. Those who obey GOD and His messenger have triumphed a great triumph.
[5:54] O you who believe, if you revert from your religion, then GOD will substitute in your place people whom He loves and who love Him. They will be kind with the believers, stern with the disbelievers, and will strive in the cause of GOD without fear of any blame. Such is GOD’s blessing; He bestows it upon whomever He wills. GOD is Bounteous, Omniscient.

[9:73]O you prophet, strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern in dealing with them. Their destiny is Hell; what a miserable abode!
[9:123]O you who believe, you shall fight the disbelievers who attack you – let them find you stern – and know that GOD is with the righteous.
[48:29]Muhammad – the messenger of GOD – and those with him are harsh and stern against the disbelievers, but kind and compassionate amongst themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating, as they seek GOD’s blessings and approval. Their marks are on their faces, because of prostrating. This is the same example as in the Torah. Their example in the Gospel is like plants that grow taller and stronger, and please the farmers. He thus enrages the disbelievers. GOD promises those among them who believe, and lead a righteous life, forgiveness and a great recompense.

[66:9]O prophet, struggle against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be stern with them. Their abode is Gehenna, and a miserable destiny.

How to deal with the Hypocrites

 [4:88] Why should you divide yourselves into two groups regarding hypocrites (among you)? GOD is the one who condemned them because of their own behavior. Do you want to guide those who are sent astray by GOD? Whomever GOD sends astray, you can never find a way to guide them.
God distinguishes the believers. Only from people posing to be believers , you can  expect a statement like ‘ I am such a sincere believer’

alt[4:49] Have you noted those who exalt themselves? Instead, GOD is the One who exalts whomever He wills, without the least injustice.
[38:8]  “Why did the proof come down to him, instead of us?” Indeed, they are doubtful of My proof. Indeed, they have not yet tasted My retribution.

[25:43] Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?

[45:23] Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, GOD sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by GOD? Would you not take heed?

People who obey God and His messenger worship God alone and do not idolize anyone besides God while people who disobey God and His messenger idolize Satan and their own egos. True believers obey God and His messenger and uphold the Quran alone – the whole Quran and nothing but the Quran- while people who claim to obey God but disobey God’s messenger disobey God Himself and uphold the Quran partially and selectively and uphold their  personal opinions. Thus, as a result of this idolatory , God nullifies their works.

Praise be to God. Lord of the Universe!
