A.) OBEY MUHAMMAD SO THAT YOU MAY OBTAIN MERCY. IF YOU OBEY MUHAMMAD, YOU OBEY ALLAH AT THE SAME TIME
[Quran 24:56] And establish prayer and give zakah and obey the Messenger – that you may receive mercy.
[Quran 4:80] He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah; but those who turn away – We have not sent you over them as a guardian.
B.) ALLAH SWORE BY MUHAMMAD AND HONOR HIS IMMENSE NOBLE STATUS
[Quran 15:72] By your life, [O Muhammad], indeed they were, in their intoxication, wandering blindly.
Ibn Kathir’s Explanation:
Verily, by your life, in their wild intoxication, they were wandering blindly.) Allah swore by the life of His Prophet, which is an immense honor reflecting his high rank and noble status. `Amr bin Malik An-Nakari reported from Abu Al-Jawza’ that Ibn `Abbas said: “Allah has never created or made or formed any soul that is dearer to him than Muhammad. I never heard that Allah swore by the life of anyone else.
C.) ALLAH AND HIS ANGELS PRAY FOR MUHAMMAD, AND ALSO COMMAND THE MUSLIMS TO PRAY FOR MUHAMMAD AND SALUTE HIM
[Quran 33:43] Palmer Translation. He it is who prays for you and His angels too, to bring you forth out of the darkness into the light, for He is merciful to the believers
[Quran 33:56] Palmer Translation. Verily, Allah and His angels pray for the prophet. O ye who believe! pray for him and salute him with a salutation!
COMMENT: Most official Quran translators covered the true translations of these surahs.
D.) MUHAMMAD ABROGATED THE COMMANDMENTS OF ALLAH
1.) THE THREE DAILY PRAYERS PRESCRIBED BY ALLAH WAS REPLACED BY MUHAMMAD WITH FIVE PRAYERS
[Qur’an 11:114] And keep up prayer in the two parts of the day and in the first hours of the night; surely good deeds take away evil deeds; this is a reminder to the mindful.
[Qur’an 24:58] O you who believe! let those whom your right hands possess and those of you who have not attained to puberty ask permission of you three times; before the morning prayer, and when you put off your clothes at midday in summer, and after the prayer of the nightfall; these are three times of privacy for you.
Replaced By Muhammad:
[Sahih Al-Bukhari 528] Narrated Abu Hurairah: I heard Allah’s Messenger saying, “If there was a river at the door of anyone of you and he took a bath in it five times a day, would you notice any dirt on him?” They said, “Not a trace of dirt would be left.” The Prophet added, “That is the example of the five (daily compulsory) Salat (prayers) with which Allah blots out (annuls) evil deeds.”
[Grade: Sahih (Darussalam), Reference: Sunan Ibn Majah 2867]
‘Awf bin Malik Al-Ashja’i said: “We were with the Prophet – seven or eight or nine of us – and he said: ‘Will you not give pledge to the Messenger of Allah?’ So we stretched forth our hands and someone said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, we have already given you our pledge. On what basis shall we give this pledge?’ He said: ‘(On the basis that) you will worship Allah and not associate anything with Him, you will establish the five daily prayers, you will listen and obey’ –
2.) THE MUT’AH (TEMPORARY MARRIAGE) COMMANDMENT OF ALLAH WAS CANCELED BY MUHAMMAD
[Quran 4:24] Forbidden to you are married woman, except what your right hand possesses. This Allah has written for you, and all other women besides these are permitted to you, so that you may seek them out with your wealth, seeking chastity and not fornication. So when you have contracted temporary marriage [istimt’atum] with them, then give them their words. There is no sin on you for whatever you agree to after this. Indeed, Allah is Knowing, Wise.
Canceled by Muhammad:
[Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 527] Narrated by ‘Ali bin Abi Talib: On the day of Khaibar, Allah’s Apostle forbade the Mut’a (i.e. temporary marriage) and the eating of donkey-meat.
[Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 86, Number 91] Narrated by Muhammad bin ‘Ali : ‘Ali was told that Ibn ‘Abbas did not see any harm in the Mut’a marriage. ‘Ali said, “Allah’s Apostle forbade the Mut’a marriage on the Day of the battle of Khaibar and he forbade the eating of donkey’s meat.” Some people said, “If one, by a tricky way, marries temporarily, his marriage is illegal.” Others said, “The marriage is valid but its condition is illegal.”
E.) ALLAH PLEADED MUHAMMAD TO FORGIVE THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE BECAUSE JUDGMENT IS COMING
Muhsin Khan . And We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them except with truth, and the Hour is surely coming, so overlook (O Muhammad SAW) their faults with gracious forgiveness.
Pickthall. We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them save with truth, and lo! the Hour is surely coming. So forgive, (O Muhammad), with a gracious forgiveness.
Yusuf Ali. We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, but for just ends. And the Hour is surely coming (when this will be manifest). So overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.
COMMENT: This indicates that Allah have no concern about forgiving the sins of the people, but it depends on the hands of Muhammad whether he will forgive the people or not. In this regard, Muhammad is god while Allah is the intercessor.
