Salaam angel_one,

Have you considered that that ayah is meant by God as a sarcastic remark?

God bless you

Salam (peace)!

I know you understand the verse very well, even much better than me! :)

Surat Al-Munafiqun (The Hypocrites) was revealed in Madinah, most probably in the sixth year after the Hijrah, this surah has 11 verses, and it takes its name from the word al-munafiqun (the hypocrites) in the first verse. It reveals the inner world of the hypocrites and their plots against Islam. It orders the believers not to cling to the passing delights of the world and to remain free of hypocrisy.

The hypocrites who emphatically bore witness to the Messengership of God's Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, in his presence, upon him be peace and blessings, were lying, saying what they did not believe in or what was contrary to their hearts. They did so in order to hide their hypocrisy and the unbelief in their hearts. One who declares something true to be true frequently, emphatically, and without any reason, incurs doubt and should be doubted.

'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As (May Allah be pleased with them) said:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Whosoever possesses these four characteristics is a sheer hypocrite; and anyone who possesses one of them possesses a characteristic of hypocrisy till he gives it up. These are: when he is entrusted with something, he proves dishonest; when he speaks, he tells a lie; when he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous; and when he quarrels, he behaves in very imprudent, evil, insulting manner."

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

[Qur'an 4:60-61]

Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Muhammad Muhsin Khan
60. Have you seen those (hyprocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Taghut (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitan (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray.

61. And when it is said to them: "Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger (Muhammad SAW)," you (Muhammad SAW) see the hypocrites turn away from you (Muhammad SAW) with aversion.

Be aware of such person affiliated with the set of people (in those days Jews) who proclaims;

"We have accepted the belief in Allah the Exalted and the Last Day".

Such people declare it while they have certainly not become the believers. [2:08]

They are Muna'fi'qeen, the first characteristic feature of Muna'fi'qeen is their claim of believing in Allah, the Last Day and verbally testifying that Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam is certainly the Messenger of Allah the Exalted as told in 63:01. Therefore, it should not be translated by the word Hypocrite, since amongst non believers there could be hypocrites but they are NOT Muna'fi'qeen, they will have a better class-place in Hell-Prison than Muna'fi'qeen-the Imposter believer.

The objective is later told plainly:


"These Muna'fi'qeen have consciously and purposely adopted their declarations as protective shield/deception" [Refer 58:16 and 63:02]

Translation with grammatical parsing of words and sentence2:08

This is Shirk (polytheism)!!! Are you a polytheist? :laugh:  :rotfl:

[Qur'an 33:56]
إن الله وملائكته يصلون على النبي يا أيها الذين آمنوا صلوا عليه وسلموا تسليما

The Qur'an: A Monotheist Translation
God and His angels make contact with the prophet. O you who believe, you shall make contact with him, and comply completely.

Mmm, this leads me, inevitably, to wonder why you didn't translate this sentence "Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam" into English? O0


THE VERSES OF THE DAY:

[Qur'an 4:145-147]

Sahih International
145. Indeed, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire - and never will you find for them a helper -

146. Except for those who repent, correct themselves, hold fast to Allah, and are sincere in their religion for Allah, for those will be with the believers. And Allah is going to give the believers a great reward.

147. What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing.

يا أيها الذين آمنوا صلوا عليه وسلموا تسليما


Know the fact: Allah the Exalted and His Angels render commendations upon the Distinctly Elevated and Chosen Allegiant[/size] [Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam].
O those/you, who consciously proclaim to have accepted/become believers, listen!
You are directed to reverently commend and attend to him. And you are required to submit to him salutations showing obeisance in a humble and respectful manner. [33:56]


commendations: Praise of somebody's abilities; recognition of accomplishment.

Verily, Allah and His angels yusalluna-ala-an-nabi (send Blessings on the Prophet). O you who have believed, sallu alaihe (send blessings on him), and greet (salute) him with a worthy salutation.

Tafsir ibn Kathir
http://quran.cc/33/56

The Command to say Salah upon the Prophet

Al-Bukhari said: "Abu Al-`Aliyah said: "Allah's Salah is His praising him before the angels, and the Salah of the angels is their supplication.'' Ibn `Abbas said: "They send blessings.'' Abu `Isa At-Tirmidhi said: "This was narrated from Sufyan Ath-Thawri and other scholars, who said: `The Salah of the Lord is mercy, and the Salah of the angels is their seeking forgiveness. There are Mutawatir Hadiths narrated from the Messenger of Allah commanding us to send blessings on him and how we should say Salah upon him. We will mention as many of them as we can, if Allah wills, and Allah is the One Whose help we seek. In his Tafsir of this Ayah, Al-Bukhari recorded that Ka`b bin `Ujrah said, "It was said, `O Messenger of Allah, with regard to sending Salam upon you, we know about this, but how about Salah' He said:

(Say: "O Allah, send Your Salah upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your Salah upon the family of Ibrahim, verily You are the Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious. O Allah, send Your blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your blessings upon the family of Ibrahim, verily You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.'')'' Imam Ahmad recorded that Ibn Abi Layla said that Ka`b bin `Ujrah met him and said, "Shall I not give you a gift The Messenger of Allah came out to us and we said, `O Messenger of Allah! We know how to send Salam upon you, but how can we send Salah' He said:

(Say: "O Allah, send Your Salah upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your Salah upon the family of Ibrahim, verily You are the Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious. O Allah, send Your blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your blessings upon the family of Ibrahim, verily You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.'')'' This Hadith has been recorded by the Group in their books with different chains of narration.

Peace anGel-OnE, Mazhar, all.

The Qoran teaches us to respect the prophet while he is alive (49:2, 24:62). Once he is dead, we can respect and obey the message he brought up, the living messenger. If we truly respect the prophet, we must follow the message that he received from God Almighty, Qoran. Unfortunately, millions of Muslims all over the world are expressing their respect to the dead prophet Muhammad through idolizing him- a practice that is contrary to the teachings of the Qoran .

[Qoran 3:79] Never would a human being whom God, blessed with the scripture and prophet hood say to people, "Idolize me beside God." Instead, (he would say), "Devote yourselves absolutely to your Lord alone," according to the scripture you preach and the teachings you learn.

Our love and respect to any messenger should be only through the love and the respect of the message he delivered, and the scripture he brought up. When God's messengers are dead, the only living messenger we have to love and respect would be the scripture, the infallible word of God. God's choice of the word "messenger" in the following verse, 9:24, is very precise and deliberate. God didn't mention the name Muhammad instead of "his messenger" for us to love, but rather He chose to leave it as general as "His messenger". God does not err or run out of words. He specifically chose "His messenger" knowing that His prophet will be dead, and all what we need to love besides God is His living messenger, the Qoran.

The Qoran, in its perfect Arabic tongue, teaches us that the word messenger(rasool) could also be used for the message itself (resalah). The scriptures also fulfill the same exact function of a messenger: delivering, warning, and confirming God's message and scriptures (65:10-11, 11:1-2, 14:1, 27:1-2, 5:46-48). Therefore, our love in the following verse is not to be offered for Muhammad the human, but for the living messenger of God, the Quoan:

[Quran 9:24] Proclaim:" If your parents, your children, your siblings, your spouses, your family, the money you have earned, a business you worry about, and the homes you cherish are more beloved to you than God and His messenger, and the striving in His cause, then just wait until God brings His judgement." God does not guide the wicked people."

Now,,I am afraid " sallallaho alaihi wa sallam"  has no meaning now the prophet is dead.It was useful when he was alive.It meant God and his angels supported the messenger, you  the believers should support him as well. That is all.

Whatever you say about the dead is of no help to them, they had their trial and the outcome is already decided by God according to their work

The living are the ones that need redemption.  Heed the message!

Peace to all.
TOTAL LOYALTY TO GOD ALONE.   IN GOD I TRUST

38:65″ Say:? I warn you; There is no other god beside GOD, the One, the Supreme.?

Peace goodlogic,

Allah the Exalted now "loves" people only conditionally:





You the Messenger [Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] pronounce: "If you people have been loving Allah the Exalted;
Then to demonstrate and prove it, you consciously and heartily follow me in letter and spirit without in between there being a third party intervention and influence.

If you acted accordingly, Allah the Exalted will in response-reciprocally love-appreciate and acknowledge you people.

Moreover, He the Exalted will overlook and grant forgiveness for you people for your earlier wrong-doings.

Remember, Allah the Exalted is The Forgiving-Overlooking and the Merciful". [3:31]

: ى  is the Object Pronoun: First person referring to Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam. It should be remembered that strictly following him does not mean acting upon conjectures and hearsay attributed in time and space by various people to him. ِ means and denotes only that what the Elevated Messenger of Allah the Exalted personally followed.

"Indeed I practically follow in letter and spirit that: Grand Qur'aan which is communicated to me from my Sustainer Lord". [He pronounced it four times 6:50;7:203; 10:15;46:09 . He was directed for this four times in 6:106;10:109;33:02;75:18]

We literally follow Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam only when we act according to the words of  Qur'aan.

[Qur'an 47:19]

Sahih International
So know, [O Muhammad], that there is no deity except Allah and ask forgiveness for your sin and for the believing men and believing women. And Allah knows of your movement and your resting place.

Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Muhammad Muhsin Khan
So know (O Muhammad SAW) that La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women. And Allah knows well your moving about, and your place of rest (in your homes).

[Qur'an 3:79]

Sahih International
It is not for a human [prophet] that Allah should give him the Scripture and authority and prophethood and then he would say to the people, "Be servants to me rather than Allah," but [instead, he would say], "Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied."

When the Christians of Najran claimed that Jesus (PBUH) had commanded them to take him as a Divinity, and some Muslims asked that they should be permitted to prostrate themselves before him, the Prophet (PBUH), the following was revealed: It belongs not to any mortal that God should give him the Book, the Judgement, the understanding of the Divine Law, prophethood, then that he should say to men, ?Be servants to me instead of God.? Rather, he should say, ?Be masters, scholars, labouring (rabbaniyyun, ?those of the Lord?, is derived from rabb, ?lord?, with the extra alif and nun, as a superlative [of rabbiyyun]), by virtue of what you know (ta?lamun, also read as tu?allimun, ?you teach?) of the Book and in what you study?, that is, on account of the fact that you used to do this, for its benefit is that you engage in action.

YOU SAID:
Now,,I am afraid " sallallaho alaihi wa sallam"  has no meaning now the prophet is dead.It was useful when he was alive.It meant God and his angels supported the messenger, you  the believers should support him as well. That is all.


Well, your translation saying something else than the original.

[Qur'an 33:56]
إن الله وملائكته يصلون على النبي يا أيها الذين آمنوا صلوا عليه وسلموا تسليما

The Qur'an: A Monotheist Translation
God and His angels make contact with the prophet. O you who believe, you shall make contact with him, and comply completely.

Rashad Khalifa
GOD and His angels help and support the prophet. O you who believe, you shall help and support him, and regard him as he should be regarded.

Shabbir Ahmed
Verily, Allah and His angels bless the Messenger and support his Mission (33:43). O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! Bless him and give yourself up to him and his Mission in total submission. (4:65), (7:157).

[Qur'an 3:144]

Sahih International
Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.

Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Muhammad Muhsin Khan
Muhammad (SAW) is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah, and Allah will give reward to those who are grateful.

Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Muhammad Muhsin Khan
Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."


When they said, ?We only worship idols out of our love for God, that they might bring us close to Him?, the following was revealed: Say, O Muhammad (PBUH), ?If you love God, follow me, and God will love you, meaning that He will reward you, and forgive you your sins; God is Forgiving, as regards the sins, committed previously, by one who [now] follows me; Merciful, to him.


You say: "Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam", which means "Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him", while your translation says something different, "make contact"!!! :brickwall: I would be grateful if you could translate "Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam" into English!!! THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Peace,

I follow the Message Muhammad came with from God and no more. It is the same one that all other Messengers proclaimed. Any other thing is just following mad stories, ie so-called hadith of Muhammad.

The Monotheist translation is perhaps not always accurate, but the sectarian ones are not any better and deliberately twisted and with brackets that are not in the Arabic discourse. They presume too much and use hadith for the bracket information basis.

I feel sorry for those who cannot get out of the sectarian marshland.

God bless you
