I want to continue the topic of sunnatullah in this chapter to ensure it is well understood and to eradicate the illusion ‘God is the father, the Rasul is the father’ completely. For if we continue viewing these magnificent supremacies with a simplistic approach and treat them akin to the elders of our family the extent of truth from which we will be curtained cannot even be imagined! But no matter what we write and how much we stress the importance of this topic, it is difficult for people to abandon the religious understanding they have constructed in their imagination and to adopt the universal realities that are being revealed to them!
I wonder what I have to do… If I write the things from the past they say “these are things we know”. If I write new things they say “we have never heard such things, where are you making this up from?” I just don’t know what to do…
But there is one thing I know for sure, and that is our lack of knowledge and understanding of the words ‘Allah’ and ‘Rasulullah’… We simply use these words and concepts without ever pondering on what they actually mean!
02:46 “To comprehend and encompass Muhammad Mustapha (saw), the most profound miracle of the One denoted by the name Allah on earth, will only be the comprehension of our inadequacy to do so!”
04:24 Muhammad (saw) was a ‘Hanif’ in his youth, that is, he refused the concept of godhood, and later, with his Risalah, he believed in and advocated only the One denoted by the name Allah, warning people with the universal truth: “Do not make [up in your mind] another deity besides Allah (do not deify your illusory selves)! Lest you find yourself disgraced and forsaken (as a result of your shirq, dualistic understanding, you will be confined to the limits of your ego rather than manifesting the infinite potential of your essence).”(Quran 17:22)
06:12 Some people think I am against the sunnah because I do not believe that complying with the customs and traditions of the idolater Qurayshi community has anything to do with following the sunnah of Rasulullah…
08:12 The Rasul of Allah (saw) merely showed his respect to the customs and traditions of the Qurayshi people and thus complied with them; not because they held any significance to him but because he did not want to disrespect his community. What kind of a mentality advocates these customs as the sunnah of Rasulullah?
09:38 “Nor does he speak from his own inclinations (imagination).” (Quran 53:3) This verse is not only in reference to the Quran; its meaning is not limited to the verses that were revealed to him!
11:21 May Allah help us to understand the true function for which the Rasul of Allah (saw) has been created and grant us the comprehension that the Sunnah of the Rasul of Allah, is the Sunnah of Allah.
