Does the Quran really enjoin fearing Allah alone?

by Saif min Suyufillah

Critic:

To summarize what we learned so far, both the Quran and specific Islamic sources teach that,

  • Muslims must fear both Allah and the wombs, meaning that they must keep good ties with their relatives.

Response:

O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah , through whom you ask , and the wombs. Indeed Allah is ever, over you, an Observer (4:1)

Read the verse again.Fear is for Allah alone.

You ask is related to the rights and duties of mates,i.e. the first part of verse.

Wombs is related to second part of the verse i.e. those dispersed from the two mates.

It is never asked to fear the wombs.

Critic:

  • Allah conjoined this fearing of the wombs and himself by using the conjunction wa(“and”), which according to Muslim scholars themselves is the conjunction which implies equality and partnership.

Response:

Wa is never between Allah and Arham rather between Bihi and Arhaam.

Critic:

  • According to Muhammad, there is an ancient living conscious womb that speaks with and clutches onto Allah, one that is attached to the throne. It is because of this specific womb that Allah enjoined his followers to fear the wombs by keeping good relations with family and kin.

It is clear from all of this that Islam is far from being a true monotheistic religion since its sources command Muslims to worship and fear others besides Allah, such as an ancient womb that Muhammad thought was alive and could speak!

Response:

It is something created by Allah and definitely Allah should be knowing and understanding His creations.

See the hadees again which proves that womb is not god rather it is something created by Allah.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah created the creation, and when He finished from His creation the Rahm (womb) got up, and Allah said (to it): ‘Stop! What do you want?’ It said: ‘At this place I seek refuge with You from all those who sever me (i.e. sever the ties of Kinship.)’ Allah said: ‘Would you be pleased that I will keep good relation with the one who will keep good relation with you, and I will sever the relation with the one who will sever the relation with you?’ It said: ‘Yes, ‘O my Lord.’ Allah said (to it), ‘That is for you.’” And then Abu Huraira recited the Verse:– “Would you then if you were given the authority, do mischief in the land, and sever your ties of kinship.” (47.22) (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93, Number 593)

Raham or the Womb is a creation of Allah.
