Thirdly, the verses of the Holy Quran which have been quoted above, are enough to refute this argument. It has been proved by these verses that despite reading the Kalima or offering prayers these insolent people are disbelievers. At one place Allah said “They have become disbelievers after embracing Islam, because they have made a particular statement.” At another place Allah has said: “Make no excuses; you have become disbelievers after embracing Islam”. According to this flimsy argument there should be more than 99 words of disbelief but Allah has declared them as disbelievers for only one word of disbelief. Perhaps the insolent people will answer that this is a mistake of Allah or He has been too hasty in restricting the sphere of Islam. They would blame that the followers of Qiblah and the readers of Kalima are being pushed out of Islam just for saying one word, and that they have not been given even the chance of making an excuse. Also Allah did not consult some worshipper of nature or a lecturer from Nadwa or some other liberal Islamic reformer of their persuasion. “May the curse of Allah fall on the wrongdoers.” Fourthly, the answer to this argument is:
YOUR ALLAH ALMIGHTY SAYS
“Believe you in part of the Scripture and disbeliever you in pray thereof? And what is the reward of those who do so save ignominy in the life of the world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be consigned to the most grievous doom. For Allah is not unaware of what you do. Such are those who buy the life of the world at the price of the Hereafter. Their punishment will not be lightened, neither will they have support.”
(SURAH II 85 –86)
Suppose there are one thousand statements in the Holy Quran. The Islamic faith requires that every statement should be accepted. If somebody accepts 999 and does not accept only one, the glorious Quran says that he is no! a Muslim for having accepted 999. The Quranic Command is that he is a disbeliever because he has not accepted one statement of Allah and he will suffer humiliation in this world and severe punishment in the Hereafter. This is the situation on accepting 999 and rejecting one; how can a person become a Muslim by accepting only one and rejecting 99 out of one hundred principles of faith. Obviously. this is not an Islamic creed. The Quranic evidence leads us to the conclusion that it is on its very face a clear disbelief.
