In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful We will examine ten of the concealed beliefs of the Salafis

here. Since they claim that the Qur'an is literal, then it is only natural that the following are their true beliefs, which they conceal. After all, they are based on literalist readings and interpretations of the Qur'an!

1. Allah Mocks at His Creation: Mockery is a sin, and has been condemned in the Qur’an and Hadith. It is also a sign of ignorance and immaturity. How would the citizens of Saudi Arabia feel about their King if he comes on Television to mock them? Yet, they have no hesitation in attributing such stupidity to Allah (swt), courtesy of their literal interpretation of these verses: “Allah mocks at them and gives them increase in their wrongdoing to wonder blindly”. [Qur’an 2:15.] “Allah mocks at them (sakhirallahu minhum) and they shall have a painful torment”. [Qur’an 9:79]. In the Shi’a creed, Allah (swt) is above mocking at anyone or anything. The verses are purely metaphorical. They merely convey His displeasure with some of His creatures. 2. Allah Plots Against His Creation: You plot when you have evil intentions and plans which you are hiding. Salafis think Allah (swt) is hiding some evil intentions and plans from us: “And they plotted and Allah plotted too”. [Qur’an 3:54] 3. Allah Deceives His Creation: Deception is an act of hypocrisy when there is no moral justification for it. Salafis thus love their god for his hypocrisy: “Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He who deceives them”. [Qur’an 4:142] Salafism equate Allah (swt) and hypocrites in a tough game of deception. 4. Allah Forget His Creation: Forgetfulness is an imperfection. To Salafis, Allah (swt) is still below it: “They have forgotten Allah. So He has forgotten them”. [Qur’an 9:67] They also believe that Allah (swt) always forgets His creatures. But, whenever one of them remembers Him, He too remembers him, and forgets him again: “Therefore, remember Me, I will remember you”. [Qur’an 2:152] So, there is a way to escape His punishment on the Day of Judgment. Just forget Him and He will never remember that He ever created you:

“So this Day we shall forget them as they forgot their meeting of this Day”. [Qur’an 7:51] “Surely, we too will forget you”.[Qur’an 32:14] “This Day We will forget you as you forgot the meeting of this day of yours”. [Qur’an 45:34]. In his commentary of this verse, Ibn Jarir al-Tabari has cited Ibn ‘Abbas, through his chains, interpreting it as meaning ‘We shall abandon them to their punishment’" (Tabari, Jami‘ al-bayan [Beirut: Dar al-Fikr, 1405/1984], 8.202). This certainly is ta’wil by a prominent Companion. Also, the Qur’an however refutes the Salafis: “Your Lord is never forgetful”. [Qur’an 19:64]. 5. Allah Needs Help From His Creation: Salafis strongly believe that Allah (swt) always needs our help. If we refuse to help Him, He will be helpless: “If you help Allah, He will help you”. [Qur’an 47:7] If He does not need help, Salafis ask, why is He soliciting it? The Qur’an however answers them: “O mankind! It is you who stand in need of Allah”. But Allah is free of all needs, and worthy of all praise”. [Qur’an 35:15]. We also read this: “Allah is not in need of you”. [Qur’an 39:7] 6. Allah Hates the Handicapped: In the view of Salafis, Allah (swt) has an intrinsic hatred for the handicapped: “Verily, the worst of living creatures with Allah are the deaf and the dump, who understand not”. [Qur’an 8:22]. But, even the blind will suffer! “And whoever is blind in this world, will be blind in the hereafter, and more astray from the Path”. [Qur’an 17:72]. The painful side of it is that Ibn Baz died a blind man. 7. Allah is a Manual Laborer: This verse always plays into Salafis hands. Allah (swt) is a manual laborer: “O Iblis! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I created with both My Hands”? [Qur’an 38:75]

The creation of Adam as.gif was so difficult that Allah (swt) had to use both Hands. He also used both hands to create Cattle: “Do they not see that we have created for them of what Our Hands have created, the cattle, so that they are their owners”. [Qur’an 36:71] But, the creation of the heaven and earth apparently forced Allah (swt) to use His entire body: “Are you the more difficult to create or the heaven”. [Qur’an 79:27]. Here, the Salafi god acknowledges that he finds certain things difficult to do. Then, he continues: “Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of man. [Qur’an 40:57]. This means he used more than hands. However, nothing is difficult with the True Allah (swt), and He never engages in manual labour: “Verily, His command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, ‘Be’ – and it is!” [Qur’an 36:82] The term “Hand” has also been mentioned in this verse: “And the sky We built with hands; verily We outspread [it]" [Qur’an 51:47] Ibn Jarir al-Tabari has transmitted, through authentic chains, from Ibn ‘Abbas, who claims that “with hands” means “with power” in his commentary of this verse. He has also narrated similar ta’wil from Mujahid, Qatada [Ibn Da‘ama], Mansur [Ibn Zadhan al-Thaqafi], and Sufyan al-Thawri (Jami‘ al-bayan, 27.7–8). 8. Allah has Limited Knowledge: Salafis do not believe that Allah (swt) knows the future or has the knowledge of Unseen: “Do you think that you will be left alone while Allah has not yet known those among you who strive with might and main, and take none for friends and protectors except Allah, His Messenger, and the believers”? [Qur’an 9:16] The term in the verse is “walammaa ya’lamillahu”, literally meaning “while Allah has not yet known”. Dr. al-Hilali and Dr. Khan, the Salafi translators, give the verse as “while Allah has not yet tested”. Of course, that is the meaning of the figurative expression. However, it is not the literal translation. The word is “ya’lam”, derived from “ilm”, meaning “knowledge”. There is just no way the word can mean “test” in the literal sense. So, what are these Salafi translators trying to conceal? There are many verses like the above in the Qur’an. They confuse even one Sunni scholar, because of his own disease of literation, to the extent that he wrote this: “Allah does not know what His believers are going to do. But, when they commit their deeds, He knows”. Tafseer Balaghat-ul-Hayran by Maulana Husain Ali, pages 157-158 (Published by Himayat-eIslam press, Lahore, Pakistan). Here are more such verses: If a wound has afflicted you (at Ohud), a wound like it has also afflicted the (unbelieving) people; and We bring these days to men by turns, and that Allah MAY KNOW those who

believe and take witnesses from among you; and Allah does not love the unjust. And that He may purge those who believe and deprive the unbelievers of blessings. Do you think that you will enter the garden while Allah has NOT YET KNOWN those who strive hard from among you, and (He has not) known the patient. [Qur’an 3:140-142] That which befell you, on the day when the two armies met, was by permission of Allah; that He MIGHT KNOW the true believers; And that He MIGHT KNOW the hypocrites, unto whom it was said: Come, fight in the way of Allah, or defend yourselves. They answered: If we knew aught of fighting we would follow you. On that day they were nearer disbelief than faith. They utter with their mouths a thing which is not in their hearts. Allah is Best Aware of what they hide. [Qur’an 3:166-167] O you who believe! Allah will certainly try you in respect of some game which your hands and your lances can reach, that Allah MIGHT KNOW who fears Him in secret; but whoever exceeds the limit after this, he shall have a painful punishment.[Qur’an 5:94] 9. Allah is Delirious (Naudhobillah)! The creed founded by Ibn Taymiyyah thinks Allah (swt) some times gives irrational command. We will examine four such commands that Salafis condemn: “And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah”. [Qur’an 3:103]. Salafis say: We have searched every where, and can not locate any rope stretching from the heavens! Besides, how can Allah (swt) expect over 1.6million Muslims to hold one rope at the same time, never leaving it even to ease themselves or eat? They also ask- which of these verses is correct? “The Path of Allah to whom belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth”. [Qur’an 42:53]. “As for those who strive hard in Us, we will surely guide them to Our Paths”.[Qur’an 29:69] Salafis ask: first, how does one strive hard in Allah (swt) Himself? Secondly, does He have only one Path or many Paths? Again, Salafis are baffled at these verses: “And (remember) when Allah took the covenant of the Prophets, saying: ‘Take whatever I gave you from the Book and Wisdom, and afterwards there will come to you a Messenger confirming what is with you; you must, then, believe in him and help him”. Allah said: ‘do you agree and will you take up my covenant’? They said: ‘We agree’. He said: then, bear witness; and I am with you among the witnesses. Then whoever turns away after this, they are the transgressors”. [Qur’an 3:81-82]. “And ask (O Muhammad) those of Our messengers whom we sent before you: ‘Did we ever appoint gods to be worshipped besides the Most Gracious?’” [Qur’an 43:45] Salafis: Why has Allah (swt) ordered the past prophets to believe in Muhammad (saww) and help him hundred of years after their own death? This contradicts Salafis aqeedah that the dead never return or has any impact on the world. Again, why has He ordered The Holy Prophet pbuh.gif to ask people that were apparently dead? Another confusion that Salafis have is about this verse:

“Verily, we will indeed help our Messenger and those who believe in this world’s life and on the day when the witness will stand forth”. [Qur’an 40:51] This verse is talking about the future return of all prophets to this world, to participate in a great battle for the planet. Salafis do not believe this. So, their only explanation of the verse and many more like it is –irrational. 10. Allah will Perish Anyone could easily think that the heading is only an exaggeration. However, Salafis actually believe that the body and limbs of Allah (swt), except His face, will certainly perish one day, in a unique manner: “Everything will perish save His face”. [Qur’an 28:88] This verse has been a source of serious concern to Salafis since Ibn Taymiyyah. Some of them, like Ibn Kathir, have broken their own three golden rules and interpreted “His face” as “Himself”. This thus puts them within the brackets of their own takfeer. Others are more rigid. They maintain that Allah (swt) will indeed perish up to the face. He will perish in a manner different from that of His creatures. However, the effect will be one – destruction. One of such hardliners is Al-Albani. Al-Albani was asked: “You have heard me raise doubt to the matter that Al-Bukhari might say such statement that the meaning of ‘face’ in Allah’s saying (And there will endure forever the Face of your Lord), is property”. The questioner learnt that Al-Bukhari had metaphorically interpreted Qur’an 28:88 (as the full conversation between them evidences) and Qur’an 55: 27-28, saying “face” meant “property”. Al-Albani became very angry and barked: “O brother! A believer Muslim should never state such words!” Fatawa Al-Albani, p. 522. When the questioner persists, Al-Albani told him frankly- the verse has a literal meaning and the implication of that does not matter. This is how he puts it: “The most important thing is saving Al-Bukhari from claims of metaphorically interpreting the verse”. Fatawa Al-Albani, p. 522. Therefore, the implication of the literal interpretation of those verses in unimportant. It is part of their banned knowledge. However, Al-Bukhari must be portrayed, at all cost, as a literalist! This is surprising. How can a person of the caliber of Al-Albanni in Salafi hadithology claim that AlBukhari never made such claims? What about this one: “‘His face’ mentioned in Allah’s saying ‘Everything will perish save His face’ stands for His property”. Sahih Al-Bukhari, vol. 6, p. 17. Al-Albani goes to extreme of calling any one who interprets Qur’an 28:88 and Qur’an 55:27-28 or any other verse or Hadith metaphorically a kafir. What will his successors today say about Ibn Kathir and Al-Bukhari? But – why did Al-Albani lied so shamelessly, like Ibn Tamiyyah, Ibn Baz and other Salafi Imams? What were they all trying to conceal? CHALLENGE We read in the famous book Forty Hadith Qudsi, this hadith copied from Sahih Muslim as its

Salafi authors state: Hadith Qudsi 18: On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah pbuh.gif said: Allah (mighty and sublime be He) will say on the Day of Resurrection: O son of Adam, I fell ill and you visited Me not. He will say: O Lord, and how should I visit You when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: Did you not know that My servant So-and-so had fallen ill and you visited him not? Did you not know that had you visited him you would have found Me with him? O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you fed Me not. He will say: O Lord, and how should I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: Did you not know that My servant So-and-so asked you for food and you fed him not? Did you not know that had you fed him you would surely have found that (the reward for doing so) with Me? O son of Adam, I asked you to give Me to drink and you gave Me not to drink. He will say: O Lord, how should I give You to drink when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: My servant So-and-so asked you to give him to drink and you gave him not to drink. Had you given him to drink you would have surely found that with Me. If we interpret this Hadith Qudsi literally, then it becomes clear that Salafis believe that: 1 Allah (swt) is hungry too and eats food 2 Allah (swt) is thirsty too and drinks water 3 Allah (swt) is present with everyone, and not seated on a Throne somewhere above the clouds (as mainstream Salafism claims) Any Salafi that wants a debate on this, you are welcome. I HAVE TONS MORE COMING IF YOU LIKE. But, you will have to respond to the above first, how you interpret them literally without incurring kufr.
