And They Call Themselves Muslims!

Qur’aanic Verse 16.56:



56. WayajAAaloona lima la yaAAlamoona naseeban mimma razaqnahum taAllahi latus-alunna AAamma kuntum taftaroona


56. And they set apart a portion of what We have given them for those of whom they know nothing9. By Allah, you shall most certainly be questioned about that which you have been concocting!


Study Note:

9. It is a practice among polytheists to offer some material things for their deities, other than Allah, whom they worship. These deities are either fictitious things or statues of persons, dead or living. The worshippers have no incontrovertible evidences of any divine powers that are reportedly attributed to these deities. Their belief in them is based on just hearsays. The Muslims too have unfortunately fallen a prey to this shirk. They go to the graves of saints, with costly chaddars and hefty monetary donations, thinking that the saints exercise divine powers through their graves. Their thoughts and actions are utterly un-islamic, and yet they call themselves Muslims!


The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil III, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil I & Mabzil II of the series are already published.

  1. i had almost lost faith that you were capable of writing anything that make sense, but this time you have written something that actually make sense.

    congratulations. !

    • Can you please quote your full name. You are causing confusions.

  2. Exellant!

  3. Deity is a feminine idol in particular. And this has been a habit of Mushrikoon to worship at least one female idol among all. In some cases, she is the who pleases the other gods and in some cases she is for the fertility. Panjatan Pak is another good example of this trend among mushrikoon.

  4. What is the solution, some one has rightly said;
    Every right belief should be followed by right action, failing which a lot of our belief systems will die within us

    Mohammad Shafi responds:
    Right belief without right action is no belief at all.
