God’s Messenger of the Covenant*
[25:27] The day will come when the transgressor will bite his hands (in anguish) and say, “Alas, I wish I had followed the path with the messenger.
[25:28] “Alas, woe to me, I wish I did not take that person as a friend.
[25:29] “He has led me away from the message after it came to me. Indeed, the devil lets down his human victims.”
[25:30] The messenger* said, “My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran.”
[25:31] We also set up against every prophet enemies from among the guilty. Your Lord suffices as a guide, a master.
[25:32] Those who disbelieved said, “Why did not the Quran come through him all at once?” We have released it to you gradually, in order to fix it in your memory. We have recited it in a specific sequence.
*25:27-30 This verse refers also to God’s Messenger of the Covenant whose name is mathematically coded in the Quran as “Rashad Khalifa.” If you write down the gematrical value of “Rashad” (505), followed by the gematrical value of “Khalifa” (725), followed by this sura number (25), followed by verses 27, 28, 29, and 30, the final number (5057252527282930) is a multiple of 19 (see Appendices 2 & 26 for details). The prophet Muhammad will also make such a statement as in 25:30 on the Day of Judgment.
Major Prophecy Fulfilled* God’s Messenger of the Covenant
[3:81] GOD took a covenant from the prophets, saying, “I will give you the scripture and wisdom. Afterwards, a messenger will come to confirm all existing scriptures. You shall believe in him and support him.” He said, “Do you agree with this, and pledge to fulfill this covenant?” They said, “We agree.” He said, “You have thus borne witness, and I bear witness along with you.”
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.* [81:20] Authorized by the Possessor of the Throne, fully supported. [81:21] He shall be obeyed and trusted. [81:22] Your friend (Rashad) is not crazy.
[6:116] If you obey the majority of people on earth, they will divert you from the path of GOD. They follow only conjecture; they only guess.
[23:69] Have they failed to recognize their messenger? Is this why they are disregarding him? [23:70] Have they decided that he is crazy? Indeed, he has brought the truth to them, but most of them hate the truth.
Run For Your Life
[58:22] You will not find people who believe in GOD and the Last Day befriending those who oppose GOD and His messenger, even if they were their parents, or their children, or their siblings, or their tribe. For these, He decrees faith into their hearts, and supports them with inspiration from Him, and admits them into gardens with flowing streams wherein they abide forever. GOD is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. These are the party of GOD. Most assuredly, GOD’s party are the winners.
The Dwellers of Heaven Visit the Dwellers of Hell
[37:50] They will come to each other, and confer with one another. [37:51] One of them will say, “I used to have a friend. [37:52] “He used to mock: ‘Do you believe all this? [37:53] “‘After we die and turn into dust and bones, do we get called to account?'” [37:54] He will say, “Just take a look!” [37:55] When he looks, he will see his friend in the heart of Hell. [37:56] He (will go to him and) say, “By GOD, you almost ruined me. [37:57] “If it were not for my Lord’s blessing, I would have been with you now. [37:58] “(Do you still believe) that we die, [37:59] “only the first death, and we never receive any requital?”
Social Pressure: A Profound Disaster
[29:25] He said, “You worship beside GOD powerless idols due to peer pressure, just to preserve some friendship among you in this worldly life. But then, on the Day of Resurrection, you will disown one another, and curse one another. Your destiny is Hell, wherein you cannot help one another.”
God’s Messenger of the Covenant*
[72:19] When GOD’s servant* advocated Him alone, almost all of them banded together to oppose him. [72:20] Say, “I worship only my Lord; I never set up any idols besides Him.” [72:21] Say, “I possess no power to harm you, nor to guide you.” [72:22] Say, “No one can protect me from GOD, nor can I find any other refuge besides Him. [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.
Disregarding God’s Scripture
[2:101] Now that a messenger from GOD has come to them,* and even though he proves and confirms their own scripture, some followers of the scripture (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) disregard GOD’s scripture behind their backs, as if they never had any scripture.
Study the Quran
[47:24] Why do they not study the Quran carefully? Do they have locks on their minds? [47:25] Surely, those who slide back, after the guidance has been manifested to them, the devil has enticed them and led them on.
Quran: The ONLY Source
[17:46] We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your Lord, using the Quran alone,* they run away in aversion.
Hadith & Sunna: Fabrications by the Prophet’s Enemies
[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.
[2:185] Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed, providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and the statute book. Those of you who witness this month shall fast therein. Those who are ill or traveling may substitute the same number of other days. GOD wishes for you convenience, not hardship, that you may fulfill your obligations, and to glorify GOD for guiding you, and to express your appreciation.
Greatness of the Quran
[59:21] If we revealed this Quran to a mountain, you would see it trembling, crumbling, out of reverence for GOD. We cite these examples for the people, that they may reflect.
[17:106] A Quran that we have released slowly, in order for you to read it to the people over a long period, although we sent it down all at once.
