Introduction to Quran, from the Authorized English Version of Quran, by Rashad Khalifa, Ph.D.

The Quran is God’s final message to humanity. All of God’s prophets have come to this world, and all the scriptures have been delivered. The Quran consolidates all the messages delivered by God’s prophets into one message and proclaims that henceforth, there is only one religion acceptable to God, “Submission.” “Submission” is the religion whereby we recognize God’s absolute authority, and reach an unshakable conviction that God ALONE possesses all power; no other entity possesses any power that is independent of Him. The natural result of such a realization is to devote our lives and our worship absolutely to God ALONE. This is the First Commandment in all the scriptures, including the Old Testament, the New Testament, and God's Final Testament, the Quran. While every religion has been corrupted by innovations, traditions, and false, idolatrous doctrines, there may be “Submitters” within every religion. There may be Submitters who are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or anything else. These Submitters, collectively, constitute the only religion acceptable to God. All Submitters who are devoted to God ALONE, and do not set up any idols beside God, are redeemed into God’s eternal kingdom. The Quran contains all the answers humans need to achieve peace and happiness in this life and the Hereafter. In this "Introduction" to the Quran, The Final Testament (published in the Authorized English Version of Quran, by Rashad Khalifa, Ph.D.), Dr. Khalifa, summarizes the significance of the Quran for the whole world in future. This includes: - The Mathematical Miracle of Quran which proves the existence of God and the intact nature of the Quran. https://www.masjidtucson.org/quran/miracle/ - The reason why humans were created, where did they come from, what is the purpose of their life, the truth about evolution, who are the angels, Satan and the jinns, which is God's true religion. https://www.masjidtucson.org/publications/videos/vid.php?vid=LKrk3v00r80 https://www.masjidtucson.org/publications/videos/vid.php?vid=3HN_sTndr04 - The appearance of God's Messenger of the Covenant to purify and unify all existing religions into one: "Submission." https://www.masjidtucson.org/submission/faq/messenger_of_covenant.html - The crucial age of 40.

Why Were We Created, Appendix 7, Authorized English Version of Quran.

Why Were We Created, Appendix 7, Authorized English Version of Quran.

The reason why God created humans and the purpose of life are perhaps the most desired answers about life by people. This video gives you the exact answer to why humans, animals, birds, trees, stars etc. exist and their role in the universe. You will also find out who the human really is, who are the angels, Satan, the jinns; what is death. When you know why were we created and your life’s purpose, you will have a logical reason to worship God alone and follow His guidance so that you may achieve happiness in this life, followed by redemption to God after you die. The commandment to worship God alone is found in all scriptures from God, including the Old Testament and New Testament. Another fact of humanity revealed in this video is about the original sin committed by humans. Contrary to popular belief, the “Original Sin” was not Adam’s violation of God’s law when he ate from the forbidden tree. The correct picture is made known here - a critical turning point for humans to realize and fulfill the responsibility of their creation. All the information humans need about life, God and the Hereafter, is in the Quran, God’s Final Testament to humankind. https://www.masjidtucson.org/quran/index.html A superhuman numerical code built into the Quran provides the first physical proof that God exists, along with proof about several other important matters that concern the human race. https://www.masjidtucson.org/quran/miracle/ More information concerning your soul that you may have never known before is explained in the Appendices section of the Authorized English Version of Quran, by Rashad Khalifa, Ph.

The Myth of Intercession, Appendix 8, Authorized English Version of Quran.

The Myth of Intercession, Appendix 8, Authorized English Version of Quran.

The myth of intercession is one of Satan’s most effective tricks to dupe millions of people into idol worship. To believe that anyone other than God, can intercede on our behalf to have our sins forgiven or our wishes fulfilled, is to set up partners with God. This is idolatry. Millions of people believe their messengers - Muhammad, Jesus etc. - will intercede for them with God so their sins will be forgiven and they do not go to Hell. The concept of intercession is illogical. All messenger's of God, including Prophet Muhammad and Prophet Jesus, were powerless human beings. While everyone would like someone to intercede for them, the truth is that intercession is not possible. God already knows everything and He is the best Judge. He does not need anyone to inform Him about anything or advise Him on His judgement.

Abraham: Original Messenger of Islam, Appendix 9, Authorized English Version of Quran.

Abraham: Original Messenger of Islam, Appendix 9, Authorized English Version of Quran.

The religious practices of Islam were taught to Prophet Abraham, not Prophet Muhammad. God never ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son. Islam is called “Millat Ibrahim” (The Religion of Abraham) throughout the Quran. Moreover, the Quran informs us that Muhammad was a follower of Abraham. This video explains how to know the correct practices of Islam (Salat, Zakat, Fasting, Hajj) from Quran. The Quran deals only with practices that were distorted. For example, the distorted ablution is restored in 5:6 to its original four steps. The tone of voice during the contact prayers (Salat) was distorted—many Muslims pray silently. This was corrected in the Quran, 17:110. The fasting during Ramadan was modified in the Quran to allow intercourse during the night (2:187). Zakat is restored in 6:141, and Hajj is restored to the four correct months.

Role of the Prophet Muhammad, Appendix 12, Authorized English Version of Quran.

Role of the Prophet Muhammad, Appendix 12, Authorized English Version of Quran.

Prophet Muhammad's role was to deliver the Quran, God's Final Testament to humankind. He was forbidden from explaining the Quran because God is the Teacher of the Quran. Traditional Muslims insist on following the books of the Hadith and Sunnah which they claim are the words and actions of Prophet Muhammad. They believe that they need the prophet's explanations to understand the Quran. This is not true. Prophet Muhammad did not deliver or decree anything except the word of God - Quran. That is all he asked people to follow for their salvation. The Hadith and Sunnah are Satanic innovations attributed to the prophet against his will. In fact, these fabrications did not appear until about the second century after his death. https://www.masjidtucson.org/submission/perspectives/hadith/index.html Following these false sources is one of the biggest reasons why the Muslims are in such a terrible condition today. Whatever humans need to know to lead happy lives and be redeemed to God in the Hereafter is described in the Quran. https://www.masjidtucson.org/quran/index.html More about Prophet Muhammad is at: https://www.masjidtucson.org/submission/faq/muhammad.html More information concerning your soul that you may have never known before is explained in the Appendices section of the Authorized English Version of Quran, by Rashad Khalifa, Ph.

The First Pillar of Islam (Submission), Appendix 13, Authorized English Version of Quran.

The First Pillar of Islam (Submission), Appendix 13, Authorized English Version of Quran.

The First Pillar of Islam (Submission) is to bear witness that there is no god except God. The declaration of faith (Shahadah) is, "Laa Elaaha Ella Allah," and does not have Prophet Muhammad's name in it. To add anyone's else's name along with God constitutes setting up partners with God. This is called Shirk or Idolatry. Most Muslims nullify their worship every day by adding Prophet Muhammad's name in the Shahadah. They simply cannot say, “Ash-hadu Allaa Elaaha Ellaa Allah” by itself, without mentioning the name of Muhammad. All religions from God are based on monotheism which is that there is only one God and that you must worship Him alone. The primary role of all humans is to worship God alone. Most humans do not worship God alone. This can be rectified by knowing the reason why God created the world.
