Bahai Fact

Are al-Quran and Writings of “Bahaullah” from same Author (Allah)?

Are al-Quran and Writings of “Bahaullah” from same Author (Allah)?

We have heared some bahai authors saying that is because of some bahais says that writings of Mirza Hussein Ali is in the mannar of Quran is due to the same source which is totally disagree.

But first let me share one Ayah (sign) of almighty Allah.

Who can be more wicked than one who inventeth a lie against Allah, or saith, “I have received inspiration,” when he hath received none, or (again) who saith, “I can reveal the like of what Allah hath revealed”? If thou couldst but see how the wicked (do fare) in the flood of confusion at death! – the angels stretch forth their hands, (saying),”Yield up your souls: this day shall ye receive your reward,- a penalty of shame, for that ye used to tell lies against Allah, and scornfully to reject of His signs!” (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah (Chapter) Al – Annam (The Cattle) 6 , Ayah (verse) 93)

 

The author of Quran (Almighty Allah) says many places in the Quran, few references has been given below

It is He Who hath produced you from a single person: here is a place of sojourn and a place of departure: We detail Our signs for people who understand. (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Al – Annam (The Cattle) 6 , Ayah 98)

A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Qur’an in Arabic, for people who understand;- (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Fussilat (Explained in Detail) 41 , Ayah 3)

Allah disdains not to use the similitude of things, lowest as well as highest. Those who believe know that it is truth from their Lord; but those who reject Faith say: “What means Allah by this similitude?” By it He causes many to stray, and many He leads into the right path; but He causes not to stray, except those who forsake (the path),- (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2 , Ayah 26)

Foremost

Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters; father’s sisters, Mother’s sisters; brother’s daughters, sister’s daughters; foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives’ mothers; your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;- (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah An-Nisa (Women) 4 , Ayah 23)

Now let see what author of Iqdus has to say about..

It is forbidden you to wed your fathers’ wives. We shrink, for very shame, from treating of the subject of boys. Fear ye the Merciful, O peoples of the world! Commit not that which is forbidden you in Our Holy Tablet, and be not of those who rove distractedly in the wilderness of their desires. (Ref: Kitab-i-Aqdas, Page 58 , Paragraph  107)

Although it is another question that are Bahá’ís allowed to marry their sister or brother because Bahai’s Author (Supposed to be Almighty God) feel SHAME to guide his people. And I believe that this matter would be untouched by the Bahá’ís because If their God did not treat the subject then Prophet (True prophet) cannot make decision of forbition or allowed by his own. And when God and Prophet did not what rights Master(S) guardian(S) and People Bodies has.. There also arises another question. Were these laws revealed by God to Baha or did Baha make them up all be himself? If Baha is the lawmaker then he definitely deserves to be condemned for just this law, forget about all the rest. If they are from God’s side then why did shy away from it?

Here we want to share another Ayah of the Quran

Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say:”This is from Allah,” to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby. (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Al Baqara (The Cow) 2 , Ayah 79)

Further if you read

“If one wants to investigate the Bahai faith with eyes which are open and with knowledge and insight, then that one shall most certainly return emptily. All should leave their sense, insight, understanding and discernment and accept whatever I say.” (Ref: Makatib Vol 2, p 247)

Why is it that Bahai principle of independent investigation of truth is not applied to Bahai teachings. If truth has to be investigated independently, why is one not allowed to investigate Bahaism? On the contrary, the founder of Bahaism declares if you will investigate the Faith, it will not be worth your while!

 

He is also quoted to have said:

O son of the soil become sightless so that you can observe my beautiful face, become unable to hear anything else so that you can hear my harmonious voice, become uninformed so that you can take away a part of my wisdom… so that you may enter my holy kingdom with a clean eye, an innocent heart and a benevolent ear.” (Ref: Bahaullah’s Ad’leh Mahboub; Abdul Baha’s Makatib page 247)

 

Imagine if you will, a single-minded devotee, blind, deaf and ignorant to all but the body and soul of “Bahaullah”. Can such a person compare and investigate various truths and find The Truth?

 

Those who, when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord, droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind; (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Al-Furqan [The Criterion, The Standard] 25 : Ayah 73)

 

The parable of those who reject Faith is as if one were to shout Like a goat-herd, to things that listen to nothing but calls and cries: Deaf, dumb, and blind, they are void of wisdom. (Ref : Al-Quran (The Quran) – Surah Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2 : Ayah 171)

 

Say: “I tell you not that with me are the treasures of Allah, nor do I know what is hidden, nor do I tell you I am an angel.  I but follow what is revealed to me.” Say: “can the blind be held equal to the seeing?” Will ye then consider not? (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Al-Anaam [Cattle, Livestock] 6 : Ayah 50)

 

These two kinds (of men) may be compared to the blind and deaf, and those who can see and hear well. Are they equal when compared? Will ye not then take heed? (Ref: Al-Qur’an [The Quran], Surah Hud 11 : Ayah 24)

 

(Here is) a Book which We have sent down unto thee, full of blessings, that they may mediate on its Signs, and that men of understanding may receive admonition. (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Surah Sad [The Letter Sad] 38 : Ayah 29)

 

Furthermore

 

This passage, now written by the Pen of Glory, is accounted as part of the Most Holy Book: The men of God’s House of Justice have been charged with the affairs of the people. They, in truth, are the Trustees of God among His servants and the daysprings of authority in His countries.

…….. Inasmuch as for each day there is a new problem and for every problem an expedient solution, such affairs should be referred to the House of Justice that the members thereof may act according to the needs and requirements of the time…… (Ref: Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh revealed after the Kitáb-i-Aqdas – ISHRÁQÁT (Splendours) (8) – The eighth Ishráq 67 – 68)

 

In a nutshell Bahai God knew that his Law will be incompatible with in passage of time within 1,000 years (because after which new prophet will come with the divine inspiration (Ref: Kitab-i-Aqdas, Paragraph 37)) and he (alleged God) can not make his law compitiable rather he gave the authority to men to override his principles accourding to their understandings and needs.

 

We have sent down to thee the Book in truth, that thou mightest judge between men, as guided by Allah: so be not (used) as an advocate by those who betray their trust; (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Surah An-Nisa [Women] 4 : Ayah 105)

 

But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against Thy decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction. (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Surah An-Nisa [Women] 4 : Ayah 65)

 

And this is a Book which We have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous, that ye may receive mercy: (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Surah An-Nisa [Women] 4 : Ayah 155)

Follow (O men!) the revelation given unto you from your Lord, and follow not, as friends or protectors, other than Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition. (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Al-Araf [The Heights] : Ayah 3)

….These are the limits ordained by Allah; so do not transgress them if any do transgress the limits ordained by Allah, such persons wrong (Themselves as well as others). (Ref : Al-Quran (The Quran) – Surah Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2 : Ayah 229)

 

Say: “Allah knows best how long they stayed: with Him is (the knowledge of) the secrets of the heavens and the earth: how clearly He sees, how finely He hears (everything)! They have no protector other than Him; nor does He share His Command with any person whatsoever. (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Al-Kahf [The Cave] 18 : Ayah 26)

 

It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path. (Ref: Al-Qur’an, Al-Ahzab [The Clans, the Coalition, the Combined Forces] 33 : Ayah 36)

 

Therefore I want to say what Quran says

Say : O ye that reject Faith!

I worship not that which ye worship,

Nor will ye worship that which I worship.

And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship,

Nor will ye worship that which I worship.

To you be your Way, and to me mine.

(Ref: Holy Quran, Surah Al-Kafiroon (The Disbelievers) 109 , Ayah 1 – 6)

 

We must say what Quran Says

 

We have sent down to thee the Book in truth, that thou mightest judge between men, as guided by Allah: so be not (used) as an advocate by those who betray their trust; (Ref: Holy Quran, Surah An-Nisa (Women) 4 , Ayah 105)

 

Further

Say: O leaders of religion! Weigh not the Book of God with such standards and sciences as are current amongst you, for the Book itself is the unerring Balance established amongst men. In this most perfect Balance whatsoever the peoples and kindreds of the earth possess must be weighed, while the measure of its weight should be tested according to its own standard, did ye but know it. (Ref: Kitab-i-Aqdas, Page 56 , Paragraph  99)

 

May Allah Guides us All

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;

Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment.

Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

Show us the straight way,

The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.

(Ref:Al-Quran (The Quran) – Surah Al-Fatiha (The Opening) 1 : Ayah 1 – 7)

  1. The “Ad’leh Mahboub” and “Makatib” are not even real works, therefore the quotes you have cited from those nonexistent sources are fabricated.
