God Almighty didn’t allow His messengers and prophets to decide on his behalf who is an infidel and who is a believer, for Allah alone, glory be to Him, knows what the breasts and intentions of the servants are, and none other than Him has the right to judge people. God Almighty has laid down two rules that define the responsibility of all messengers and their duty, without exception in His words “Those who convey the messages of Allah and fear Him and do not fear anyone but Allah. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.” (39) Surat al-Ahzab.

Then God shows people that evaluating the his servants is the Almighty’s unique work, and judged on their actions in the world in saying “(17) Indeed, those who have believed and those who were Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associated with Allah – Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed Allah is, over all things, Witness. (17)” Surat Al-Haj. Thus, from where did some get their opinions that contradict the evidences and just rulings of God while Allah has reserved for Himself the right to judge His servants?

Are they not shy away from God?! Are they not afraid of Him while they distort His verses?! Did they not read his book and recognize his punishment for everyone who was tempted by himself to admonish him to judge by what God did not reveal in his Qur’an?! Did they not realize that he prepared his account for them and would punish them for the crimes they had committed in his book, and they issued judgments, crossing all red lines that forbid them to lie to God, and He warned them, Glory be to God, to wait for His torment.

Don’t they know that all messengers and prophets are Muslims? As He said in his Qura’an (132) And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], “O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except while you are Muslims.” (132) “Or were you witnessed when death approached Jacob, when he said to his sons, “What will you worship after me?” They said, “We will worship your God and the God of your fathers, Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac – one God. And we are Muslims [in submission] to Him” (133)” Surat Al-Baqarah.

At the meantime, there are verses confirming to people that all the messengers and prophets carry one message, which is the message of Islam, and all the followers of those messengers are Muslims, and if their methods of worship differ and their sects and groups are different, like the Muslims, the followers of Muhammad, peace be upon him, have different groups and their references, and their methods of worship differed, but they are Muslims. Thus, how a person take Negative attitudes against his brothers from the People of the scriptures because first of all they are their brothers in the homeland and its partners in society, and secondly all Muslims believe in all the messengers and prophets of the People of the Book, and this is a basic condition for them to be Muslims. “And speak to people good [words]…” (83) Surat Al-Baqarah. In this regard, God Almighty said to His Prophet Muhammed “And tell My servants to say that which is best. Indeed, Satan induces [dissension] among them. Indeed Satan is ever, to mankind, a clear enemy.” (53) Surat Al-Israa.

These are some of Muslims ‘characteristics and I ask those who issue fatwas about what God has not revealed in His verses as they write and give fatwas, so what is the status of a Muslim who does not follow the attributes of Muslims and the morals of the believers who God has stipulated that people to be Muslims should adhere to the morals of the Qur’an and the attributes of the believers, to deserve the membership of Islam. For those who spread Satan hate speech and slandering verses in the Qur’an, let them wait for God’s punishment on the Day of Judgment that God, glory be to Him, describes the scene of those who lied to God and perverted His judgments in His words saying in His Qura’an “Lest a soul should say, “Oh [how great is] my regret over what I neglected in regard to Allah and that I was among the mockers.” (56) “Or [lest] it say, If only Allah had guided me, I would have been among the righteous.” (57) “Or [lest] it say when it sees the punishment,” If only I had another turn so I could be among the doers of good.” (58)  “But yes, there had come to you My verses, but you denied them and were arrogant, and you were among the disbelievers.” (59).

That is what God has promised to those who arrogate about His revelations, slander on His Messenger and distort his religion, so woe is waiting for them and torment in the Great Day.
