ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP (http://aljumaareminder.com/) Ever wondered why Prophets were called Magicians? Please read below:

MAGICIANS – Part 3 – Why are Messengers of Allah called magicians?

And when the truth (this Quran) came to them, they (the disbelievers in this Quran) said: “This is magic, and we disbelieve therein.” (Qur’an 43:30)

Likewise, no Messenger came to those before them but they said: “A sorcerer or a madman!” Have they (the people of the past) transmitted this saying to these (Quraish pagans)? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds (in disbelief)! (Qur’an 52:53)

We all agree that magic is falsehood but why do people say the Prophets are magicians? Disbelievers know deep within their hearts that magic is falsehood and that is why they label the Messengers of Allah as magicians.

But when our Ayat came to them (Fir’aun and his chiefs), clear to see, they said: “This is manifest magic.” And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof. So see what was the end of the Mufsidun (disbelievers, disobedient to Allah, evil-doers, liars.). (Qur’an 27:14-15)

Disbelievers blind themselves and deafen themselves because they don’t want to face the truth. They have to call the truth magic to feel good about the delusions they promise each other.

Verily, proofs have come to you from your Lord, so whosoever sees, will do so for (the good of) his ownself, and whosoever blinds himself, will do so to his own harm, and I (Muhammad SAW) am not a watcher over you. (Qur’an 6:104)

Have they not travelled through the land, and have they hearts wherewith to understand and ears wherewith to hear? Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind. (Qur’an 22:46)

…Nay, the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) promise one another nothing but delusions.” (Qur’an 35:40)

There are two kinds of people who don’t want to follow the truth:

  1. The first kind of person knows the truth and acknowledges it but admits he can’t follow it.
  • For example he might say, “I know Islam is good but I can’t give up the alcohol.”
  • For example he might say, “The Quran is truly a miracle but I can’t follow it up. It is too tough for me.”
  1. The second kind of person acknowledges the truth but deludes himself and doesn’t admit that he can’t follow it. He instead provides philosophical excuses as to why he being the way he is.
  • For example he might say, “I won’t stop selling alcohol even if I am a Muslim because it is the disbelievers who are buying it anyway.”
  • For example he might say even though he is convinced, “This Quran is just magic; there is no way I am going to follow magic.”

 

The chances of the first person following the truth at one point of his life is higher than that of the second person. It should still be noted that both kinds of people at this stage have denied following the truth for no good reason. It should always be, “We hear and obey” not “We hear and disobey.”

Side Point: Think about it! Everyone likes the truth as long as it is convenient for them; whether it is the mafia who wants to receive correct reports or Satan in the ocean who receives his report from various subordinate devils. Nobody likes to be fooled or lied to. Nobody likes to think he is wrong.

The truth can often be harsh. The truth can be scary. The truth can be embarrassing. The truth can be costly. Yes, for all these reasons, and more, most people can’t handle the truth. And because they can’t handle truth, they learn to hate it. That’s right, instead of loving truth, most people try to make true that which they love. They much prefer the comfort of self-delusion to the pain often associated with truth. [Source: http://beforeitsnews.com/financial-markets/2013/08/quote-of-the-day-most-people-cant-handle-the-truth-2587186.html)

But in totality most people hate the truth because it is often inconvenient to them via their desires and that is why they have to delude themselves by changing facts. They don’t want to think of themselves as being wrong so they convince themselves that falsehood is the truth and they have to convince themselves that the truth is falsehood; all this is done so that they can have temporary delusional inner peace. But what will this kind of attitude result in the Hereafter:

And they will cry: “O Malik (Keeper of Hell)! Let your Lord make an end of us.” He will say: “Verily you shall abide forever.” Indeed We have brought the truth (Muhammad {S.A.W} with the Qur’an) to you, but most of you have a hatred for the truth. (Qur’an 43:78)

Let us look at the following scenarios in the Qur’an to better understand how disbelievers say the truth is falsehood and falsehood is the truth:

Then after them We sent Musa with Our Signs to Fir’aun and his chiefs, but they wrongfully rejected them. So see how was the end of the Mufsidun (mischief-makers, corrupters, etc) (Qur’an 7:103)

The chiefs of Fir’aun’s people said: “Will you leave Musa and his people to spread mischief in the land, and to abandon you and your gods?” He said: “We will kill their sons, and let live their women and we have indeed irresistible power over them.” (Qur’an 7:127)

And indeed We sent Musa with Our Ayat, and a manifest authority, to Fir’aun, Haman and Qarun, but they called (him): “A sorcerer, a liar!” (Qur’an 40:23-24)

Then when he brought them the Truth from Us, they said: “Kill the sons of those who believe with him and let their women live.”; but the plots of disbelievers are nothing but in vain! (Qur’an 40:25)

Fir’aun said: “Leave me to kill Musa, and let him call his Lord (to stop me from killing him)! I fear that he may change your religion, or that he may cause mischief in the land!”  (Qur’an 40:26)

Disbelievers always play around with words; Allah informs us in (Quran 7:103) that Fir’aun and his chiefs were mischief makers.

Can you see in (Quran 7:127) how the chiefs of Fir’aun make it seem that Musa who has come with the truth is the mischief maker and that Fir’aun is innocent? These parasites pamper and re-assure Fir’aun. Fir’aun now feeling innocent and assured now suggests killing the sons of Musa’s people and letting their women live; he goes further to state that he will kill Musa since he (Musa) will make mischief in the land.

Do you now see how the disbelievers delude themselves? The truthful are called sorcerers or liars as can be seen in Qur’an 40:23-24. The ones who are trying to remove mischief from the land are called mischief makers.

The fate of those who said the truthful are magicians or said the truth is magic on the Day of Resurrection: [Source:  In the Shade of the Quran; Volume 16; Surah 48-61; Page 185]

The Day when they will be pushed down by force to the Fire of Hell, with a horrible, forceful pushing. This is the Fire which you used to belie. Is this magic, or do you not see? Taste you therein its heat and whether you are patient of it or impatient of it, it is all the same. You are only being requited for what you used to do. (Qur’an 52:13-16)

“That Day when they will be pushed down by force to the Fire of Hell, with a horrible, forceful pushing. (Verse 13) This is a violent image. The surah uses the Arabic word da’’an, which signifies being pushed hard from behind. This suits those who spend their lives playing with trifles, unconcerned with what takes place around them. Hence, they are driven and pushed in the back until they stand at the edge of hell’s fire, where they are told: “This is the Fire which you used to belie.” (Verse 14)

At this point of utter distress, being pushed hard in the back and facing the fire in front, the unbelievers are faced with a strong rebuke that refers to their earlier denials: “Is this magic, or do you not see?” (Verse 15) They used to label the Qur’an [and Allah’s other Miracles] as sorcery. Is the fire they are now facing also sorcery? Or is it the frightening truth? Or is it that they do not see the fire of hell in the same way as they could not see the truth of the Qur’an [and Allah’s other Miracles]?

When this sarcastic rebuke is over, they are made to despair of any relief for their distress: “Taste you therein its heat and whether you are patient of it or impatient of it, it is all the same. You are only being requited for what you used to do. (Verse 16) Nothing is more painful to one who has to face such a calamity than to know that bearing it with patience is the same as showing no patience at all. It will continue unabated and cannot be evaded in any way. Their suffering will be the same whether they panic or take things in their stride. Furthermore, it will continue regardless of what they do now. This is suffering is the requital for what they have already done. Hence it cannot be altered.

So taste you (the results of your evil actions in hell); no increase shall we give you except in torment. (Qur’an 78:30)

Now let us move from the scene Allah shows us from the Day of Judgement to our present life. After witnessing the scene we should try our best not to ever state that the truth is magic and learn to avoid being impressed with magic/falsehood.

We need to put things in perspective. Do you realize that we live in a time where magic is freely promoted? For a very long time, stand alone magicians and occults have existed. These occults were founded by likeminded men with an interest involving wealth, power and materialistic greed. But in the past those who were involved in occult practice were killed and tortured by Kings and Queens, as a punishment for practicing magic. Announcing sacrifices to spirits/demons/jinns, idol worship, performing sexual acts in rituals, practicing homosexuality and conspiring to overthrow authority.

But in the modern age, occult practice has become widespread and acceptable, so what went wrong? Why are those who possessed ill intentions and practiced satanic rituals, hanged and tortured in the past but in the modern age are allowed freely to practice their actions?

Ever since the first teaching that took place in Babylon much of mankind has continued ignoring the warning and continues to learn and practice this knowledge (Magic) assuming they are benefiting and they pass it on generations after generations. [This passing down even reached Fir’aun who called the truth magic and was proud to summon his sorcerers] The point being made here is that occult practice was regarded as dangerous and evil in the past but in the so-called modern age it is allowed to be practiced freely through the western law and government authorities. This just goes to question the moral policy in the modern age.

The state of mind of us who are living in the modern age should be questioned, by ourselves. In the age of today we watch music videos which reveal nothing more than satanic rituals glorifying occult behavior, we listen to songs which do nothing more than flaunt the law of occult practice. Books, video games, cartoons, commercials, and so much more freely promote magic. Therefore we should all take a moment and question the way in which we live and behave. Questioning our perception on a right from a wrong? Trying to understand why we live the way in which we do? And what’s the influence behind the way we live our life? Let’s make a change today; let’s reflect upon our life. [In the past when Islam ruled, once it was proved one is a magician by Muslim authorities he/she was killed.]

………………………………………………………………………………………………

So when came to them (Fir’aun and his Chiefs) the truth from Us, they said: “This is indeed clear magic.” (Qur’an 10:76)

Musa (Moses) said: “Say you (this) about the truth when it has come to you? Is this magic? But the magicians will never be successful.” (Qur’an 10:77)

And Fir’aun (Pharaoh) said: “Bring to me every well-versed sorcerer.” (Qur’an 10:79)

And when the sorcerers came, Musa (Moses) said to them: “Cast down what you want to cast!” (Qur’an 10:80)

He [Musa (Moses)] said: “Throw you (first).” So when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people, and struck terror into them, and they displayed a great magic. (Qur’an 7:116)

Then when they had cast down, Musa (Moses) said: “What you have brought is sorcery, Allah will surely make it of no effect. Verily, Allah does not set right the work of Al-Mufsidun (the evil-doers, corrupts, etc.). (Qur’an 10:81)

We (Allah) said: “Fear not! Surely, you will have the upper hand. (Qur’an 20:68)

“And throw that which is in your right hand! It will swallow up that which they have made. That which they have made is only a magician’s trick, and the magician will never be successful, no matter whatever amount (of skill) he may attain.” (Qur’an 20:69)

Let us remind ourselves of the basics; Musa replies to all those who call the truth magic in (Quran 10:77).  Allah informs us that the best sorcerers gathered by Fir’aun really did display a great magic/falsehood as can be seen in (Quran 7:116). Musa also says in (Qur’an 10:81), “What you have brought is sorcery.”; he is here informing them (Fir’aun, his chiefs & magicians) that what you called sorcery in (Quran 10:76) is not sorcery, but what you have brought is sorcery since it is falsehood and trickery as Allah explains in (Quran 20:69). The truth will never be magic/falsehood.

………………………………………………………………………………………………

We have now cleared the basics in these first three weeks. We apologize for going overboard with presenting over one page reminders. Thank you for bearing with us so far. Since we are unfortunately living in these times which support magic in secret and openly, it is best to have as much beneficial knowledge as possible so that we don’t fall into the impermissible.  Next week we will resume to our one page standard reminder. In the upcoming weeks we will start by exposing these Magicians’ tricks to increase our faith In Shaa Allah.
