In this short post I am going present additional evidence that Islam is really Muhammadanism seeing that it has elevated Muhammad to godlike status, requiring its adherents to blindly follow him and love him unconditionally, just as much as they love the Muslim idol:
Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight … are dearer to you than Allah AND His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause then wait until Allah brings about His Decision (torment). And Allah guides not the people who are Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious, disobedient to Allah). S. 9:24 Hilali-Khan
You (O Muhammad) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah AND His Messenger (Muhammad), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful. S. 58:22 Hilali-Khan
Islam further commands Muslims to perfectly submit to Muhammad to the same extent and degree that they are supposed to submit to Muhammad’s god:
But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission. S. 4:65 Hilali-Khan
This is why obedience to Muhammad is the same as obeying Allah, and why a person must revert back to Muhammad’s decisions whenever scholars/leaders disagree:
These are the limits (set by) Allah (or ordainments as regards laws of inheritance), and whosoever obeys Allah AND His Messenger (Muhammad) will be admitted to Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise), to abide therein, and that will be the great success. And whosoever disobeys Allah AND His Messenger (Muhammad), and transgresses His limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall have a disgraceful torment. S. 4:13-14 Hilali-Khan
O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. S. 4:59 Hilali-Khan
He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad), has indeed obeyed Allah, but he who turns away, then we have not sent you (O Muhammad) as a watcher over them. S. 4:80 Hilali-Khan
It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah AND His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. S. 33:36 Hilali-Khan
In fact, obedience to Muhammad is so crucial for Muslim salvation that Allah absolutely refuses to love anyone who doesn’t obey his “prophet,” since he only loves those who surrender to Muhammad’s will:
Say (O Muhammad to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur’an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Say (O Muhammad): “Obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad).” But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the disbelievers. S. 3:31-32 Hilali-Khan
The Muslim scripture makes it therefore explicitly clear that Muhammad has absolute, final authority and say-so over the lives of Muslims, since he pretty much owns them.
Little wonder that Muslims are named “the followers of Muhammad” in the hadiths:
Narrated Salim: I heard Um Ad-Darda’ saying, “Abu Ad-Darda’ entered the house in an angry mood. I said to him. ‘What makes you angry?’ He replied, ‘By Allah! I do not find the followers of Muhammad doing those good things (which they used to do before) except the offering of congregational prayer.” (This happened in the last days of Abu Ad-Darda’ during the rule of ‘Uthman). (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 11, Number 622 https://www.searchtruth.com/book_display.php?book=11&translator=1&start=0&number=622)
Narrated ‘Aisha: Allah’s Apostle said, “O followers of Muhammad! There is none, who has a greater sense of Ghira (self-respect) than Allah, so He has forbidden that His slave commits illegal sexual intercourse or His slave girl commits illegal sexual intercourse. O followers of Muhammad! If you but knew what I know, you would laugh less and weep more!” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 148 https://www.searchtruth.com/book_display.php?book=62&translator=1&start=0&number=148)
In light of the foregoing, I now furnish another explicit instance of Muslims deifying Muhammad by granting him the same devotion and service, which the Quran attributes to Allah.
Note what these ahadith state in regards to Abu Bakr’s love and dedication to Muhammad:
The Book of the Sunnah
(11a) Chapter: The Virtue of Abu Bakr Siddiq
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:
“The Messenger of Allah said: ‘The wealth of none of you has benefited me as much as the wealth of Abu Bakr.'” Abu Bakr wept and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I and my wealth are ONLY for you, O Messenger of Allah.'”
Grade: Da’if (Darussalam)
Reference: Sunan Ibn Majah 94
In-book reference: Introduction, Hadith 94
English translation: Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 94 (sunnah.com https://sunnah.com/ibnmajah:94)
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah said, “The wealth of no one has benefited me as much as the wealth of Abu Bakr.” Abu Bakr wept and he said, “My life and my wealth are ONLY for you, O Messenger of Allah.”
Source: Musnad Aḥmad 7397
Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Ahmad Shakir
Abu Bakr does for Muhammad what the Muslim scripture commands Muhammadans do for Allah, namely, devote their entire lives and wealth for their idol:
Say: Lo! my worship and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the Worlds. S. 6:162 Pickthall
In case the readers are unaware who Abu Bakr was, he is the one who gave his 6 or 7-year-old daughter Aisha to a 51-year-old Muhammad, who then physically consummated the marriage three years later when the minor had just turned 9!
Aisha said: The Apostle of Allah married me when I was seven years old. The narrator Sulaiman said: Or six years. He had intercourse with me when I was nine years old.
Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani) (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 11, Number 2116 https://sunnah.com/abudawud:2121)
26 The Book of Marriage
(29) Chapter: A Man Marrying Off HIS YOUNG DAUGHTER
It was narrated that ‘Aishah said: “The Messenger of Allah married me when I was seven years old, and he consummated the marriage with me when I was nine.”
Grade: SAHIH (Darussalam)
Reference: Sunan an-Nasa’i 3256
In-book reference: Book 26, Hadith 61
English translation: Vol. 4, Book 26, Hadith 3258 (sunnah.com https://sunnah.com/nasai:3256; capital emphasis mine)
Hence, not only did Abu Bakr give his premature, prepubescent child to a 54-year-old man to sexually ravish, someone old enough to be Aisha’s grandfather, during a time when the premature girl was still playing on swings and with her dolls,
The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became all right, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234 https://www.searchtruth.com/book_display.php?book=58&translator=1&start=0&number=234)
‘A’isha reported that Allah’s Apostle married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old. (Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3311 https://www.searchtruth.com/book_display.php?book=008&translator=2&start=0&number=3311)
He also sacrificed his whole life and wealth for this same man.
In other words, Abu Bakr gave Muhammad the exact same service and devotion which the Quran exhorts Muslims to render unto Allah.
Putting it simply, Abu Bakr took Muhammad as a god to be worshiped alongside Allah, with the express approval of the Islamic deity and his so-called messenger!
It completely slipped my mind that I had already written a post on Abu Bakr’s rendering to Muhammad the exact same service and devotion which Muslims are required to give to the Muslim deity: MORE PROOF THAT MUSLIMS WORSHIP MUHAMMAD.
Therefore, instead of omitting either one of the posts I have decided to keep them both since the readers now have two different angles from which to analyze Abu Bakr’s idolatrous attachment to this wickedly immoral false prophet and antichrist.
