Muhammad Rasheed - Muslims will go to hell if their bad deeds outweigh their righteous deeds on the Day of Judgment, just like the Christians and Jews.
Abdelhak Benachour - Christians and Jews who do not follow Islam will go to Hell regardless of their deeds. Having a correct belief is most important.
Muhammad Rasheed - This is incorrect. The One God says that the Christians and Jews are His people and will be Judged according to the scriptures they hold.
Abdelhak Benachour - These are the christians and the jews who came BEFORE the prophet Mohammad peace be upon him. (Q 5:73, 7:156–157, etc..).
Muhammad Rasheed - The One God said that those Christians and children of Israel who decide not to become Muslim will be Judged strictly by the scriptures they hold. Since both of the people of the Book have allowed their doctrines to stray far off the mark, it is highly recommended that they accept Islam as many of them are in for a rude and rough-handled humiliation based on leaning on their own understanding and a pagan-like loyalty to cultural-national-religious identity.
Abdelhak Benachour - Wrong. The Quran is actually speaking about those who came before the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him.
The following Ayat from the Quran should be enough to answer the long text that you wrote:
وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
He who chooses a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted from him, and in the Everlasting Life he will be among the losers. 3:85.
لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ ثَالِثُ ثَلَاثَةٍ ۘ وَمَا مِنْ إِلَٰهٍ إِلَّا إِلَٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۚ وَإِنْ لَمْ يَنْتَهُوا عَمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَيَمَسَّنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ
ndeed those who say: 'Allah is the third of the Trinity’ became unbelievers. There is but One God. If they do not desist in what they say, a painful punishment will afflict those of them that disbelieve. 5:73.
Muhammad Rasheed - The Holy Qur'an 3:84-86
84. Say [Muhammad], ‘We [Muslims] believe in God and in what has been sent down to us and to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes. We believe in what has been given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets from their Lord. We do not make a distinction between any of the [prophets]. It is to Him that we devote ourselves.’
85. If anyone seeks a religion other than [Islam] complete devotion to God, it will not be accepted from him: he will be one of the losers in the Hereafter.
86. Why would God guide people who deny the truth, after they have believed and acknowledged that the Messenger is true, and after they have been shown clear proof? God does not guide evildoers:
You’re doing as the Christians do — cherry-picking verses out of context of the greater text to mean what you want it to mean. smh “If anyone seeks a religion other than [Islam]” in context is Allah telling His prophet to dictate a vow-prayer to be recited among the Muslims. It is they specifically who are warned not to become the vile transgressor of faith by accepting another religion after they have already seen and accepted the truth of Al-Islam.
Abdelhak quoted: “If they do not desist in what they say, a painful punishment will afflict those of them that disbelieve. 5:73.”
Meaning that if the Day of Judgment finds their bad deeds outweighing their good deeds (“those of them that disbelieve”) then they will be rewarded with hell—the same thing that will happen to the Muslims if we are found with our bad deeds outweighing our good deeds.
Abdelhak Benachour - I am not cherry picking. Despite the overwhelming evidene of your claim, it is you who takes the verses out of context. Beliving in the prophets does not mean believing in the corrupted books/religions that the Christians’ and jews’ are following. The Quran came to replace these scriptures and the believers are required to follow it:
وَأَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَمُهَيْمِنًا عَلَيْهِ ۖ فَاحْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ عَمَّا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ ۚ لِكُلٍّ جَعَلْنَا مِنْكُمْ شِرْعَةً وَمِنْهَاجًا ۚ وَلَوْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ لَجَعَلَكُمْ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً وَلَٰكِنْ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ فِي مَا آتَاكُمْ ۖ فَاسْتَبِقُوا الْخَيْرَاتِ ۚ إِلَى اللَّهِ مَرْجِعُكُمْ جَمِيعًا فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ فِيهِ تَخْتَلِفُونَ
(5:48) And We revealed to you the Book, with truth, confirming the Scripture that preceded it, and superseding it. So judge between them according to what God revealed, and do not follow their desires if they differ from the truth that has come to you. For each of you We have assigned a law and a method. Had God willed, He could have made you a single nation, but He tests you through what He has given you. So compete in righteousness. To God is your return, all of you; then He will inform you of what you had disputed. (5:48)
Well the previous scriptures prophecised that the Messneger of Allah Muhammad peace be upon him. Allah said:
الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الرَّسُولَ النَّبِيَّ الْأُمِّيَّ الَّذِي يَجِدُونَهُ مَكْتُوبًا عِنْدَهُمْ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالْإِنْجِيلِ يَأْمُرُهُمْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَاهُمْ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَائِثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنْهُمْ إِصْرَهُمْ وَالْأَغْلَالَ الَّتِي كَانَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ فَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِهِ وَعَزَّرُوهُ وَنَصَرُوهُ وَاتَّبَعُوا النُّورَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ مَعَهُ ۙ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ. قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ جَمِيعًا الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ ۖ فَآمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ النَّبِيِّ الْأُمِّيِّ الَّذِي يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَكَلِمَاتِهِ وَاتَّبِعُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honor him and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful. Say: 'O mankind, I am the Messenger of Allah to you all. His is the kingdom in the heavens and the earth. There is no god except He. He revives and causes to die. Therefore, believe in Allah and His Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, who believes in Allah and His Words. Follow him in order that you are guided. (7:157:158).
The Christians and Jews are kafir and commit blasphamy against Allah. if they do not follow Islam they will go to hell. I quoted the verses 3:85, 5:73 earlier so do not ignore them and invent a new religion then call it Islam.
The Messenger of Allah said:
"وَالَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لاَ يَسْمَعُ بِي أَحَدٌ مِنْ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةِ يَهُودِيٌّ وَلاَ نَصْرَانِيٌّ ثُمَّ يَمُوتُ وَلَمْ يُؤْمِنْ بِالَّذِي أُرْسِلْتُ بِهِ إِلاَّ كَانَ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّارِ " .
By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire. (HADITH - Sahih Muslim 153).
Muhammad Rasheed - Abdelhak wrote: “I am not cherry picking.”
You clearly are. I posted the verses before and after the one you posted, and it showed that what you are trying to project was inaccurate.
Abdelhak wrote: “Despite the overwhelming evidene of your claim…”
I’m going to stop you right there. I don’t like to watch people train wreck and it’s clear you have a lot to learn. Since you don’t respect the things I post there’s no reason to continue with the discussion. I like having valuable back-n-forths that I can learn from.
Abdelhak Benachour 2 - so in order to run from the debate and promote your heresy that has nothing to do with Islam, you blocked me like a cowrad?
I got screenshots of the whole discussion and I posted them in my answer above.
Muhammad Rasheed - Abdelhak 2 wrote: “so in order to run”
Oh, I didn’t ‘run.’ I blocked a hostile social media troll who proved incapable of engaging in a civil discussion since he could only hear his own side. There was literally no reason to continue talking to myself.
Muhammad Rasheed - Look what I found at the top of this dude's 2nd account page:
He's literally fussing at a Quoran question writer for the exact same thing he just did to me. lol I also note that's his only Answer with the comments disabled. smh Who are you REALLY, Mr. Pinchor?
