Concealing of emaan - allowed or not?

Concealing of Eimaan and Islam: allowed or not?

By: Khurshid Imam
Islam is for everyone from Bali to Boston and Japan to Jordan. Islam is for every era. Islam is for every situation – when you are in tranquility as well as when you are being oppressed. There can be situations when it becomes very difficult to practice Deen or may be even to declare Deen. What about the scenario when someone accepts the religion of God but situation around is very hostile?

Quran guides us for such situations also. Guidance of Quran is clear i.e. eimaan is a matter between a person and God. Allah knows our situation, Allah knows what is going on with us, Allah knows what is beyond our capacity.

Whether you conceal what is in your hearts or reveal it, Allah knows it. And He knows that which is in the heavens and that which is on the earth. Quran 3:29

One can conceal eimaan if situation is not favorable. It’s no way a symbol of weak eimaan, rather God has praised such people. Below are two references from Quran:

A. Meccans who couldn’t migrate to Medina and concealed their Eimaan.

There were some people in Mecca who had accepted Deen but couldn’t migrate like other Muslims. They continued to live in Mecca concealing their eimaan. The historical event of Sulah-e-Hudaybiyyah took place between Muslims of Medina and Mushrik of Mecca. 

The main reason for this treaty was to save the lives of those Muslims of Mecca who had concealed their eimaan. Yes, so much was the status of these people in the sight of Allah that prophet was guided by God to go for a treaty with Meccans even though Muslims were in good strength.

“.. Had there not been believing men and believing women whom you did not know that you were trampling down and on whose account a crime would have accrued to you without (your) knowledge. Quran 48:24

a. There were some believers who had concealed their eimaan and Prophet did not know them.

b. Had a fight broken out between the two parties then these people could have got killed. In order to save their lives, the Prophet was commanded to go for a treaty. 

Such is the high regard in the sight of Allah of those who stand by their eimaan in difficult situations.

B. A believer in the court of Firaun.

There was a person in the court of Firaun who was a believer but he had concealed his eimaan. Quran has praised him so much so that a whole chapter (Number 40) is named after him: Surah Momin [also refereed as Surah Ghafir]. 

He defended Moses against Pharoah and gave dawah of the Deen to pharaoh indirectly without revealing his identity. Quran has praised him and talks about that person in Surah 40, Ayah 28 onward. See, the wise way he used for giving dawah to Firaun:

Musa (Moses) said: "Verily I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every arrogant who believes not in the Day of Reckoning!" 40:27

And a believing man of Fir'aun's (Pharaoh) people, who hid his faith said: "Would you kill a man because he says: My Lord is Allah, and he has come to you with clear signs (proofs) from your Lord? And if he is a liar, upon him will be (the sin of) his lie; but if he is telling the truth, then some of that (calamity) wherewith he threatens you will befall on you." Verily, Allah guides not one who is a Musrif (oppressor, transgressor), a liar! 40:28

"(the believing man who had concealed his emaan said) O my people! Yours is the kingdom today, you being dominant in the land. But who will save us from the Torment of Allah, should it befall us?" Fir'aun (Pharaoh) said: "I show you only that which I see (correct), and I guide you only to the path of right policy!" 40:29

Then said the man who believed: "O my people! Truly I do fear for you something like the Day (of disaster) of the Confederates (in sin)!- 40:30

"O my people! This life of the present is nothing but (temporary) convenience: It is the Hereafter that is the Home that will last. 40:39

a. The person who had concealed his eimaan was very wise and did two things : defended Moses against Firaun and gave dawah to Firaun and his people.

b. That concealed eimaan person spoke about different aspects for inviting Firaun to Deen. He gave several arguments so that people could think about the true Deen.

These two incidents are sufficient to prove that Islam permits concealing of Deen / emaan. It’s always between a believer and God.

Has Allah pre-determined Who will enter paradise-hell? Quran 7:179 analysis

Has Allah fixed who will enter paradise and hell?

Al-A'raf 7:179

وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ ٱلْجِنِّ وَٱلْإِنسِۖ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لَّا يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ ءَاذَانٌ لَّا يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَآۚ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ كَٱلْأَنْعَٰمِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّۚ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْغَٰفِلُونَ

And surely, We have created many of the jinns and mankind for Hell. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those! They are the heedless ones.
Show more reac

Questioner: Allah says he has already created some jinn and mankind for hell, den how could you say that the particular Sahih narration is contradictory with the Qur'an?

Let us read next few Ayah from Surah Al-A'raf:

180 - And Allah's are the best names, therefore call on Him thereby, and leave alone those who violate the sanctity of His names; they shall be recompensed for what they did.

181 - And of those whom We have created are a people who guide with the truth and thereby they do justice.

182 - And (as to) those who reject Our communications, We draw them near (to destruction) by degrees from whence they know not.

Where does the ayah says that Allah has already decided who will enter paradise and hell? 

The ayah quoted i.e 7:179 is saying that Jinn and mankind will enter hell fire. And immediately Allah answers the reason. What is concluded from the ayah directly contradicts with the ayah itself. 

Ayah gives the "reason" why people will enter hell. reason is:
1. They do not use their faculties for understanding / pondering.

2. Their approach is that of blind faith [Which is the case with most of muslims and non muslims]

3. Due to their own action these people will enter Hell.

Allah has said in this ayah that hell is meant for jinn and human being and one of the reasons is that they do not use their aql / common sense / faculties.

In fact, next 3 ayah also carries same view that it is the action of an individual that will take him / her to paradise-hell. It is not Allah who has "fixed" actions of human being. Kindly read next three ayah:

7:180 - "...they shall be recompensed for what they did"

7:181 - "And of those whom We have created are a people who guide with the truth and thereby they do justice"

7182 - "And (as to) those who reject Our communications, We draw them near (to destruction) by degrees from whence they know not."

Nowhere Quran says that its Allah who has already "fixed" who will enter paradise-hell. What Allah has prefixed is his "LAWS" that will lead to path of guidance or mis-guidance.

Homosexuality and Islam

Homosexuality and Islam

By: Khurshid Imam

Quran covers the issue of homosexuality in 4:16

"If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone; for Allah is Oft-returning, Most Merciful."

This punishment will be applicable only in that estate where Islamic laws are recognized. No individual is authorized to execute the penalty. In addition, the punishment is executed only in case of accused being caught by the law. Even in that case, if it is proved beyond doubt that the accused had truly repented over his/her sin before being caught, the punishment is to be condoned.

“Allah accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and repent soon afterwards; to them will Allah turn in mercy; for Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom. Of no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil until death faces one of them and he says ‘Now have I repented indeed’; nor of those who die rejecting faith: for them have We prepared a punishment most grievous”. Quran 4:17-18

A few people come with the logic that it is by birth or by my nature that as a man i am attracted towards man and hence its justified. Please note that now days same lame argument is coming from pedophiles for their inhuman crimes.

Homosexuality should be taken as disease that requires counselling and treatment.

Miracle in Islam - Mujiza or Ayah?

Miracle in Islam - Mujiza or Ayah?
 By: Khurshid Imam

A. Mujiza or Ayah?

The triliteral root ʿayn jīm zāy (ع ج ز) occurs 26 times in the Quran. Arabic word 'mujiza' is derived from it. It means "that by means of which [the Prophet] confounds, overwhelms, his opponents" or in simple words “miracle”.

Generally, we use the word 'miracle' or 'mujiza' to describe something that perplexes human mind and can't be explained. For many events mentioned in the Quran, we use these terms. 

However, the shocking fact is that Qur'an does not use the technical Arabic word (مُعْجِزَة Muʿjiza) for 'miracle'. When we go through statements in Quran that talk about so-called-miraculous events, we do not find the Arabic word 'mujiza' mentioned in the text.

Instead of 'mujiza', Quran uses the term 'Ayah' (literally meaning sign) to describe such events [what we call as miracles].

B. Quran as witness

Let us ponder over few examples from Quran
1. Prophet Salih and the miracle of the she-camel:
Prophet Salih referred to the she-camel as 'Ayah' of Allah. In general, people think that the she-camel was sent as 'mujiza or miracle but Quran says that she was an Ayah from Allah. Refer Quran 7:73

In English translations you can see the word "Miracle" added in bracket in front of the word 'ayah'.

2. Prophet Moses and miracles for Firaun:
Quran describes all miracles shown to firaun as ‘Ayah’ of Allah.

Then [Musa (Moses)] showed him the great AYAH (usually translated as miracles). Quran 79:20
But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] belied and disobeyed. Quran 79:21

Quran is saying that Prophet Moses showed ‘Ayah’ to Firaun. We know that Moses showed many events to Firaun that we understand as miracle.

     Quran 20:22 – Stick as snake was an Ayah and not Mujiza.
     Quran 20:56 – Allah showed all Ayah to Firaun.
     Quran 20:72 – Magicians surrendered and believed in Ayah shown to them.
     Quran 10:92 – Preservation of Firaun’s body is an Ayah from Allah.
     Quran 7:106-109 – Firaun asked Moses to show the Ayah, Moses showed the Ayah of snake and stick and magicians were surprised to see; they attributed this event to sorcery.

Quran 7:130-132 refers to “years of drought and shortage of crops” as ‘Ayah’. Similarly, events of flood, locusts, lice, frogs, blood are referred to as Ayah of Allah sent for Firaun.

C. What difference it makes whether it is ‘Mujiza’ or ‘Ayah’?

One may question: what is the big deal in use of word ‘Ayah’ or absence of word ‘Mujiza’?
When we use word ‘miracle’ or ‘Mujiza’ for an event then we assume it to be:
     Super natural event
     Something that is beyond human perception
     Something that goes against laws of nature.

However, Quran attributes these events to be Ayah of Allah. Arabic word ‘Ayah’ is difficult to translate in any language because it comes solely from Allah. Loosely, we can translate it as ‘Sign’. Ayah of Allah are of two types:
     In the Quran: Every sentence in the Quran is an Ayah of Allah.
     Outside the Quran: Everything surrounding us reflect Ayah of Allah.

1.     Time and again Allah urges readers of Quran to deeply ponder over Ayah of Allah.
2.     Quran also says that in the ‘work’ of Allah there is Ayah for those who think.

Ayah of Allah is for human beings to ponder upon, derive guidance and benefit. When we assume that it’s not an Ayah but a super natural event then we deprive mankind of the benefits of Ayah.

We keep on discovering and knowing more details of Ayah or 'signs' of Allah. 

For example, Quran 2:164 says that those who use ‘aql’ or intellect will find many things from following Ayah of Allah:
  1. Creation of heavens and the earth
  2. Alternation of day and night
  3. Sailing of ship through oceans
  4. Rain
  5. Moving Creatures
  6. Movement of wind
Quran says that all above events are Ayah of Allah for those who use intellect / AQL.
Today, science has discovered many aspects of above Ayah of Allah, which earlier people did not know. The more people pondered over above Ayah of Allah, more knowledge they gained.
Similarly, the more we will ponder over so-called-miracles or ‘Mujiza’, better we will understand its mechanism. Mujiza is neither super natural nor it’s against the laws of nature. If we ponder over it more, we will be able to explain its mechanism better.

D. Conclusion

1.     Quran uses the Arabic word ‘Ayah’ to indicate events that we deem as miracle. Quran never uses the word ‘Mujiza’ in context with such events.
2.     With the passage of time, we keep on moving from less knowledge domain to more knowledge domain.
3.     Whatever the so-called-miracle occurred in the past, they occurred as part of God's laws. We might discover many of these laws in future. We will explore more and more regarding Ayah of Allah.
4.     Miracles of Quran are for us to ponder over and derive the guidance.

Nabi and rasul - What is the difference?

Difference between Nabi and Rasul

By: Khurshid Imam

Popular understanding is: "Every Rasul is Nabi. But every Nabi is not Rasul. Rasul is the Nabi who was given holy book from God."
Let us check the validity of this definition in the light of Quran.

Nabi is an Arabic word derived from the root word nūn bā hamza (ن ب أ) which means "news or piece of information or tidings". One who delivers the news / tidings is referred as NABI. Quran has used this word for those human being whom we refer to as Prophet in English. Prophet or Nabi would give glad tidings of good result and paradise for those who believed the message of God and he would warn people against bad consequences of rejecting the message of God.

Rasul is one who delivers the message. Going by the literal meaning both seems to be exactly same but they are not. Let’s not go into the etymology of these terms. Let us see some basic differences:

Quran has used word RASUL for different kind of creatures. It is not specific to human being or Prophets.

1.     RASUL used for angel:
Say, "If there were settled, on earth, angels walking about in peace and quiet, We should certainly have sent them down from the heavens an angel for a messenger (Rasul). Quran 17:95.

Allah says that an angel would have been sent as RASUL if angels were living on the earth.

Quran 11:77 And when Our messengers (Rasul), [angels], came to Lot,
Quran 11:81 - (The angels) said, "O Lot, indeed we are messengers (Rasul) of your Lord;
Quran 11:69 And certainly did Our messengers (Rasul) come to Abraham with good tidings;
Quran 15:57 - [Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers (Rasul)?"
Quran 15:61 - And when the messengers (Rasul) came to the family of Lot,
Quran 29:31 - messenger sent to Abraham is referred as Rasul.
Quran 29:33 - messenger sent to Prophet Lot is referred as Rasul.

Quran 7:37 refers to angel of death as Rasul.

2.     RASUL used for Al-Rooh:
ROOH- who visited Hazrat Maryam is referred to as Rasul. Quran 19:17, 19

3.     RASUL used for normal human being:
And the king said, "Bring him to me." But when the messenger (Rasul word is used here) came to him, [Joseph] said, "Return to your master …." Quran12:50

Word Rasul is used here for a person who belonged to the kingdom of Egypt. 

4.     RASUL used for Sahabi (Companion of Prophet Muhammad):
When Prophet was sending Hazrat MUAZ BIN JABAL as Governor of Yemen then Prophet referred Hazrat Muaz as RASUL ka RASUL” = “Messenger (of prophet) of the messenger (messenger of Allah)”. Source: Sunan At-Tirmidhi 1327

5.     RASUL used for Jinn (invisible creature of God):
"O you assembly of jinn and mankind! "Did not there come to you messengers (Rasul) from amongst you, reciting unto you My Verses and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" Quran 6:130

Allah chooses messengers from the angels and from the people. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and 
Seeing. Quran 22:75

Quran 33:40 tells that Prophet Muhammad is RASUL and he is the seal of NABI. Prophet Muhammad is referred as last NABI. He is not referred as last RASUL.
Nabi were those people whom we call as Prophet. Risalat continues. But door of revelation ceased with Prophet Muhammad. Revelation of God would come to human being who was a Nabi.

Allah says in Quran 28:59 that Allah does not destroy a population until he sends RASUL among them. Obviously this Risalat of Rasul continues in the form of human beings acting as Rasul / warner / guide. But for sure – NABUWWAT or Prophet-hood has ended so there is no concept of receiving revelation from Allah after Prophet Muhammad.

Myth: Rasul is a Nabi who got new holy book from God. There were 313 Rasul and 100,000+ Nabi”.

Reality 1: This hypothesis contradicts with Quran. Quran 19:54 says that Prophet Ishmael was a Rasul. But we know that he did not bring any new holy book. He was son of Prophet Abraham and he would have continued teaching of Sohaf-e-Ibraheem i.e. book given to his father.
And mention in the Book (the Qur'an) Isma'il (Ishmael). Verily he was true to what he promised, and he was a Messenger (Rasul), (and) a Prophet (Nabi). Quran 19:54
Please note that word RASUL is used for Prophet Ismael even though he was not given any separate book.

Reality 2: Quran says opposite. As we have seen that every Nabi was a Rasul. Quran 3:81 says that every Nabi was given portion of book and wisdom (Kitaab and Hikmah). Details of “Al Kitaab” is beyond the scope of this article. The idea is that teachings from Al-Kitab (Need not to be present today in holy book format) was given to every Nabi but misconception spread is that only Rasul were given holy book. Holy book / revelation is not a factor for differentiating between Nabi and Rasul.

Reality 3: Quran says in 19:30 that Jesus was given book and he was Nabi.
[Jesus] said, "Indeed, I am the servant of Allah. He has given me the Scripture (Kitab) and made me a prophet (Nabi). Quran 19:30

Reality 4: Quran 19:51 says that Prophet Moses was a Nabi and a Rasul. Even though – he was given torah, a new shariah yet Quran did not say that he was only a Rasul and not a Nabi.

Reality 5: “We gave Moses the scripture (Kitab) and followed him up with messengers (Rasul) in quick succession. …”. Quran 2:87.

Please note that Quran says that Moses was given the book, then messengers (Rasul) came in quick succession and then ayah talks about Prophet Jesus. It is very obvious that messengers (Rasul) coming in quick succession after Moses would mean no new message or scripture but the continuation of the message (book) of Prophet Moses. This fact also discards the idea that Rasul is a Nabi who brings new shariah / holy book.

Reality 6: “And We have already sent Noah and Abraham and placed in their descendants prophet hood (Nabuwwat) and scripture (Kitab)…”. Quran 57:26

Please note that Quran did not say Risalat and Kitab, rather it says Nabuwwat and Kitab. Again- we find here that theory of Rasul only getting Kitab is fabricated concept. Let me repeat: Quran has not put revelation / shariah / new holy book – a factor in differentiating between Nabi and Rasul.

I don’t know how this false notion – “every Rasul is a Nabi and only Rasul got holy book”- became so popular. This idea is horribly wrong in the context with Quran.

1.     Nabi is a person who receives divine guidance and revelation from God.
2.     Every Nabi was a Rasul. Rasul is someone who carries a message.
3.     Quran uses Rasul for Nabi, angel, normal human being etc.
4.     So, every Nabi was a Rasul but every Rasul need not be Nabi.
5.     Holy book or revelation is not a factor in differentiating Nabi and Rasul.
