God, verse 80:
"Nor would he command you to take
Angels and the
Prophets as lords. Would he ask you to become one of the disbelievers after you had
Allah?" (The Family of
<1>Again he says, "You should not believe in
Prophets as the
Prophets both refer
to those in
who have been incarnated as humans (god-men or men-gods).
It is true that they are
god-incarnated, yet only the Lord
God is the
Father, and you
should worship Him.
<2>Also only worshipping one invisible
God unifies humanity. Any other thing will bring disunity. Visible
represents the invisible!
Accepting the other religions, verse 84:
Muhammad): We believe in Allah
and that which has been revealed unto us, and that which was
Abraham and Ishmael
and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and which was given to Moses and
and other Prophets
from their Lord. There is no distinction between them for us, and
unto Him we submit." (The Family of 'Imran, 84)
<3>This verse means, "God
is one. We believe in Him and whomever He sent." However, the
Scriptures were changed after they were revealed and many things
were distorted. So
says, "We should understand these things and know that there is only
God for all of us, and
we should worship Him."
<4>In later verses, he says that it does not
matter what you call the Lord
God. Any good name you give to Him, He is, because He does not
have any name (except His sacred Divine Name, the Divine vibration,
The Word). "He is that He is." <5>In fact, everything in
this universe "is that it is." Names are only used to facilitate
communication for humanity, not for creating
God, verse 102:
"O those who believe, be aware of your duty to
Allah and be mindful
of it, so you would not die but as one completely submissive to
Him." (The Family of 'Imran, 102)
comes from the word "tasleim,"
which means to be surrendered or submissive.
means, "Those who have surrendered and are submissive to
believers are those who have surrendered themselves to
God (Allah). So it
is only necessary to be surrendered to be called a
Moslem. <7>However, the Will of
God should be understood first. Then man should surrender
himself to His Will and do His Will, which is to establish the
Kingdom Of Heaven within and without.
<8>"Be mindful" means that you should
approach the Lord with right ideation and devotion. Not doing
prayers and spiritual duties is better than doing them automatically
with no feelings. The devotion and reverence toward
God should be created.
All things belong to
God, verse 109:
whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; and
unto Him all shall return." (The Family of 'Imran, 109)
<9>It is true, all things in this universe
were made by Him. So all things belong to Him.
The hand of
God in history, verse
"There have many dispositions passed before you. Just travel on the earth and see how
evil is the end of those who rejected (the Messengers [truth])."
(The Family of 'Imran, 137)
Israel and the
Jews denied the
rejected the Lord
God. They forgot why
they had been chosen so the Lord punished them as a lesson for them
and others; read the book
House of Judah (Jews). He destroyed Jerusalem and
scattered them all over the world. <11>We want
God to punish everyone
right away, but He takes His time. He does it by His own time
schedule. It might take lifetimes before you receive your punishment
for your samskaras.
Immortality, verse 169:
"Do not think of those who are slain in the way
Allah [righteous war]
as dead. No, indeed, they are with their Lord with a provision."
(The Family of 'Imran, 169)
Koran, in the
Bible (Old Testament, New Testament, and The Revelation
2:10), in the
Bhagavad-Gita (2:32) and in all the teachings of the great
Prophets, it is
promised that those who are slain in the battle for establishing the
righteousness (internally or externally) will not suffer the second
death. They will be liberated. That is what
Muhammad is saying also, because he who is ready to lay down his
life for his ideal has overcome this world and its attractions, and
that is liberation.
<13>Another point is that the righteous
people have provision with their Lord and will become immortal.

chooseth of His Messengers whom He will": Only those who reach very
high consciousness will be chosen by
God. He selects them, so He can choose another Messenger anytime
it is needed.
<17>"So believe in
Allah and His
Messengers. If you believe and are pure, yours is a great reward." So listen to and understand the Messengers and high spiritual people

Meditation, verse 191:
standing, sitting, and lying on sides, and contemplate the creation
of the heavens and the earth, which make them humbly utter: O Lord,
You have not created this in vain [without purpose].
Holy you are; Preserve us from the torment of the Fire." (The
Family of 'Imran, 191)
sitting, and lying on sides": So love your
God with all your heart,
mind, and being. Remember your
God and meditate on Him
all the time.
<19>"And contemplate the creation of the
heavens and the earth." So contemplate the creation. Think about the
perfection of this universe. Then you should know that it cannot be
by chance. <20>Only those who have a narrow knowledge and a
crude mind would think
that this universe has no Creator.
<21>"You have not created this in vain."
God created this
universe for a definite purpose, to bring all to
Pure Consciousness. He did not create this universe in
vain. <22>Those who do not understand this will be drowned in the lake
of the fire of
Maya, "Preserve us from
the torment of the Fire."
