THE BOOK’S AIM
The aim of this book is to assert once and for all the fact that the Quran has the exclusivity of Islam, and that, unless explicitly announced in it, no one, no sect, no sheikh or authority is allowed to remove anything from it or to make any additions to it. The purpose of religion is man. To mislead a man by arousing antagonism between him and life, and generating discord between him and his self is doomed to end in a disaster. Islam is, in its essence, free from all contradictions, whereas the pseudo-religion is a den of inconsistencies, illogicalities and sources of misery. It is inconceivable that the religion that God has revealed to be in perfect accord with human nature would include contradictions.
30 – Therefore, you shall devote yourselves to the religion of strict monotheism; God’s handiwork according to the pattern on which He created mankind. Such creation of God will never change. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.
30 The Romans, 30
The only lawgiver is God as far as religion is concerned. God, as the only authority, has addressed humanity through the Quran, an explicit book free from all contradictions; a book that comprises all His messages. To acknowledge the truth of these facts is tantamount to recognizing Islam given in the Quran as the word of the Almighty, the only Lawgiver. This acknowledgement entails the revocation of all unsubstantiated powers of those styled ‘authorities’ and the affirmation of the fact that God is the One and Only Authority and has no equal. The Prophet, the messenger of God, has not declared any source other than the Quran; nor has he dictated any doctrine in the name of Islam. If a statement or commentary supposed to have been given by the Prophet proves to clash with an announcement in the Quran, if anything is added or omitted from the text of the Quran, this would belie both Islam and the Prophet. In the coming chapters, we shall take a closer look into the Arabian, Omayyad, and Abbasid traditions and customs, into the contrived explanatory notes, interpolated idiosyncratic remarks and the mentality that incorporated into Islam many sham practices. We shall be warned against equating the so-called established religion with the Quran and find out the reasons why the points alleged or believed to be part of the religion are in fact outside its scope and devoid of all validity. In brief, by heading for the source, we shall be better acquainted with Islam, and, in a sense, we shall restructure it.
