Ruling of Signing Contracts & Agreements Which Contain Kufr

In our era in which the entire world is under the dominance of Kufr, we often come across Kufr comprised agreements and similar texts. Our intention here is to take in hand the issue of authorized courts when and if dispute occur between the parties in the agreements and contracts. Such text can be seen in the contracts and agreements of hydro, heat etc., and also in computer programs, user agreements or terms of use of websites and also while shopping or many other daily matters that one may not even think about it. Even though Ahl’it Tawhid has no agenda concerning the matter, since we reject and keep distant from all types of contracts and agreements that have Kufr conditions in it, doubters keep bringing up all types of contracts and agreements. Only the one who is unaware of Kufr may doubt the open Kufr in the contracts and agreements. We want to mention the following Nass (textual proof) for the sake of reminding them:

وَمَا اخْتَلَفْتُمْ فِيهِ مِن شَيْءٍ فَحُكْمُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ
"Whatever it be wherein ye differ, the decision thereof is with Allah." (ash-Shura 42/10);

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلاً سورة النساء أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ آمَنُواْ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُواْ إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ وَقَدْ أُمِرُواْ أَن يَكْفُرُواْ بِهِ وَيُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُضِلَّهُمْ ضَلاَلاً بَعِيداً
"O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination. Hast thou not turned thy though to those who declare that they believe in the revelations that have come to thee and to those before thee? Their (real) wish is to resort together for judgment (in their disputes) to the Taghout (false deities), though they were ordered to reject him. But Satan's wish is to lead them astray far away (from the right)." (an-Nisa 4/59-60)

The Dalail (pl., Dalil; evidences) in this regard are countless such that we are not able to mention all. It is crystal clear that the one who affirms the statement "so and so court of Taghout is authorized when dispute arises between the both parties" by signing it accept something that goes against and rejects the message of these aforementioned Ayaat (pl., Ayah; verses of Qur’an). These statements are not amongst the statements that can be interpreted to both the Iman and Kufr so that Tawaqquf (pausing the Hukm i.e., ruling) of declaring Takfir upon them. By signing it one openly declares his will and acceptance of seeking judgment from the Taghout. The intent of the Taghout by insisting in such contracts and agreements is to declare which court is the authority when/if a dispute arises between both parties. Such as the court of so and so city/province/ territory/state or the Enforcement/Executive Court, Federal Court,  The Supreme Court, Tax Court, Military Court etc. After signing it if any dispute occurs between both parties then the case will be referred to the court which is mentioned on the contract/agreement since it has the authority over the dispute through the acceptance of both parties. Therefore the following claim is baseless; "This statement is only for the sake of informing so it is not binding one who signs the agreement." This is a baseless claim according to the both perspectives; the perspective of Shari’ah and the perspective of the man-made laws.   

All of these are deeds are that which nullify the bases of Tawhid that is Asl’ud Din. As it was evidently mentioned in the Ayah an-Nisa 4/60, those who wish to seek the judgment from Taghout are accounted as they had never made Imaan to Allah. Seeking the judgment of any other than Allah Ta’ala is associating him as a partner to Allah in His Ta’ala’s Hukm since Allah Ta’ala stated:


وَلَا يُشْرِكُ فِي حُكْمِهِ أَحَداً
"nor does He share His Command with any person whatsoever." (al-Kahf 18/26)

There is no difference between such Shirk being implemented/committed by I’tiqad (creed) and Amaal (deed) or utterance and writing. Whoever commits Kufr by believing it or without believing it due to fear of losing worldly things signs any paper that states: "So and so court of Taghout is authorized when dispute arises between both parties" then he commits Kufr and becomes Kafir. The only exception is Ikrah (coercion). And Allah Ta’ala had revealed the following Ayaat regarding Ikrah:

مَن كَفَرَ بِاللّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إيمَانِهِ إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ وَلَـكِن مَّن شَرَحَ بِالْكُفْرِ صَدْراً فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اسْتَحَبُّواْ الْحَيَاةَ الْدُّنْيَا عَلَى الآخِرَةِ وَأَنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ أُولَـئِكَ الَّذِينَ طَبَعَ اللّهُ عَلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ وَسَمْعِهِمْ وَأَبْصَارِهِمْ وَأُولَـئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ لاَ جَرَمَ أَنَّهُمْ فِي الآخِرَةِ هُمُ الْخَاسِرونَ
"Any one who, after accepting Imaan (faith) in Allah, utters Kufr (unbelief), -except under Ikrah (compulsion), his heart remaining firm in faith- but such as open their breast to unbelief, on them is Ghadhab (wrath) from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Azab (chastisement). This is because they love Dunya (the life of this world) better than Akhirah (the Hereafter): and Allah will not guide those who reject faith. Those are they whose hearts, ears, and eyes Allah has sealed up, and they take no heed. Without doubt, in the Hereafter they will be the losers." (an-Nahl 16/106-109)

Sulayman ibn Abdillah (rahimahullah) stated the following as explanation of Ayaat that deals with the issue of Ikrah:

"Allah Ta’ala judged with His unchangeable judgment that, everyone who turns back from his religion is a Kafir. Whether he did it due to having fear that harm would reach his life, his wealth, his family or he became Kafir both in his heart and his Dhahir, or believing in his heart but commit it whether with a statement or a deed in order to gain from the Mushrikin a worldly thing; as long as he is not under Ikrah then he becomes Kafir in anyway. And Ikrah is; the Kuffar saying to him "if you do not commit this we will kill you" or "we will beat you" or Kuffars’ beating him. He shall be in a state that he can not be saved from them unless he confirms them (in Dhahir)." (Majmuat’it Tawhid, 310)

Those who would read the Risalah regarding Ikrah & its conditions Ikrah (Coercion), It’s Nature and Limits in the Respect of Shari’ah would evidently see that fears and worries of a man can not be evaluated as Ikrah until fear, difficulty and trouble reaches the level that his willpower disappears and he commits the opposite of what he wants to do while being under pressure.

Ibn Hazm stated the following because of these evidences that appear in the Kitaab (Book i.e., Qur’an) and the Sunnah:

"Ummah (Islamic nation) made Ijmaa (consensus) upon that; whoever reveals his Kufr is Kafir other than the one who reads the statement of Kufr from somewhere or the one who tells his witnessing (to a Kufr) or one who tells it as a story and the one who is under Ikrah. Nusus (pl., Nass; textual proofs) of Qur’an also indicates that the one who speaks the statement of Kufr becomes Kafir." (Ibn Hazm, al-Fisal, 3/245)

Even though this issue is so clear, while presenting doubts some try to prove that signing contracts/agreements that contain the word of Kufr is not Kufr. After this portion of this Risalah we will take the doubts regarding the matter in hand and respond to them Inshallah. Before that let us mention, all of these doubts are the products of the people who merely try to protect their worldly gains and none of these doubts have any value Ilmwise. We would not have delved into this issue and have not mentioned these doubts which are as weak as a spiders web unless some among the laypeople had not fall into these doubts due to the widespread of Jahl (ignorance). We will establish the Hujjah (proof) concerning the matter in order to have an excuse in the presence of Allah Ta’ala. Because of this, we will try to expose and get rid of these doubts as much as we can Inshallah.
Whosoever desires الْعِزَّةَ al-Izzah (honour, power and glory) then to Allah belong all الْعِزَّةَ al-Izzah [and one can get honour, power and glory only by obeying and worshiping Allah (Alone)]. To Him ascend (all) الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ al-Kalim al-Tayyib (the goodly words), and الْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ al-Amal al-Saalih (the righteous deeds) exalt it (the goodly words i.e., the goodly words are not accepted by Allah unless and until they are followed by good deeds). (Fatir 35/10)

The first doubt: Using the Treaty of Hudaybiyah as a proof for signing the contacts & agreements in which there is the statement of Kufr

Doubters say:

Quote
"When the Treaty of Hudaybiyah had been signed; the Mushrikin of Makkah insisted Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) to write Muhammad ibn Abdullah instead of Muhammad Rasulullah. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) accepted this and did so. Rejecting Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) as being a Prophet of Allah is Kufr in Islam. However Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) due to Maslahat accepted the offer of the Mushrikin of Makkah and Muhammad ibn Abdullah had been written on the Treaty of Hudaybiyah instead of Muhammad Rasulullah. As Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) would not commit Kufr, signing these contacts & agreements can not be taken in consideration and accepted as Kufr. We reject the Kufr laws of Taghout and Taghout itself. Moreover we will never go to the court of Taghout. Our signature on the paper contacts & agreements that has the statement of Kufr has no importance. Since our sole intent is to obtain what we want to have. We reject the Kufr on the contacts & agreements but we sign them due to Maslahat."

Statements regarding the first doubt of doubters end here.

Their state is as Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) informed:


وإن العبد ليتكلم بالكلمة من سخط الله تعالى لا يُلقي لها بالا يَهوي بها في جهنم
"One speaks a word displeasing to Allah without considering it of any importance, and for this reason he will sink down into Hell." (Bukhari, Hadith no: 6478)

Tirmidhi narrated this Hadith by the way of Muhammad ibn Ishaq with the following text:

إِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَتَكَلَّمُ بِالْكَلِمَةِ لاَ يَرَى بِهَا بَأْسًا يَهْوِي بِهَا سَبْعِينَ خَرِيفًا فِي النَّارِ
"Indeed a man may utter a statement that he does not see any harm in, but for which he will fall seventy autumns in the Fire." (Tirmidhi, Hadith no: 2314) (Ibn Hajar, Fath’ul Bari, 11/314-318)

وَإِنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ لَيَتَكَلَّمُ بِالْكَلِمَةِ مِنْ سَخَطِ اللَّهِ مَا يَظُنُّ أَنْ تَبْلُغَ مَا بَلَغَتْ فَيَكْتُبُ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ بِهَا سَخَطَهُ إِلَى يَوْمِ يَلْقَاهُ
"And one of you says a statement angering Allah, not realizing that you have achieved what you have achieved. Then for it, Allah writes for him His anger until the Day of Meeting with Him." (Tirmidhi, Hadith no: 2319; Malik, Muwatta, Hadith no: 1818)

Those who claim such ideas do not withdraw cast aspersions upon Allah Ta’ala and His Rasul (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) for the sake of their worldly gain. Their claims are sufficient to prove that they have no respect and love towards Allah Ta’ala and His Rasul (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and that they are Mulhid (who commit Ilhaad i.e., deviate; deviant) and irreligious people. Their statement carries accusations that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) confirmed the statement of Kufr. They supposedly are freeing Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) from Kufr right after they state that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is Masum from Kufr therefore the Treaty of Hudaybiyah is proof for signing contracts & agreements which has the statement of Kufr without I’tiqaad of it for the sake of worldly Maslahat. This is a type of an act tin which ones excuse is worse than his fault and this is the second Baatil (falsehood) of theirs. The second Baatil of theirs is their allowing/permitting committing Kufr due to Maslahat. We had already quoted the Ijmaa of the entire Ummah from Ibn Hazm that committing Kufr without Ikrah is Kujfr so the one who does so becomes Kafir.

Shaykh’ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) while explaining the ruling in his book "as-Sarim’ul Maslul" said the following:

"The one who considers anyone who speaks the types of Kufr such as Takdhib (denial, rejection) and other then them to be Mu’min at the same time has removed the noose of Islam from around his neck."

After mentioning this, Shaykh’ul Islam continued and then said:

"We do not consider Ja’iz (permissible) to say: "This person (who utters the statement of Kufr) can be a Mu’min in his Baatin (inwardly)." Whoever says so will pass through Islam as an arrow pierces its target."

After stating this Shaykh’ul Islam mentioned the Ayah an-Nahl 106. (Ibn Taymiyyah, as-Sarim’ul Maslul ala Shaatim’ur Rasul, 436-437)

Besides such claim and  regarding the Treaty of Hudaybiyah such interpretation had not been given by anyone throughout history other than some ignorant and Zindiq (heretic) people of our era. Nothing can be quoted from any scholar which states that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) confirmed any statement of Kufr in Hudaybiyah or any other places in order to get along with the Kuffar. Such claim, view, opinion has no Salaf (predecessor) from the Islamic Ummah and it has no bases at all. Allah Ta’ala protects the Islamic Ummah from being united upon Dalalah (misguidance). Let’s take the matter in hand and present how the Ulama of this Ummah explained this incident which happened during the Treaty of Hudaybiyah.

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) narrated the incident:


حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَفَّانُ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ ثَابِتٍ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ قُرَيْشًا، صَالَحُوا النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِيهِمْ سُهَيْلُ بْنُ عَمْرٍو فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم لِعَلِيٍّ:‏ اكْتُبْ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ‏.‏ قَالَ سُهَيْلٌ أَمَّا بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ فَمَا نَدْرِي مَا بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ وَلَكِنِ اكْتُبْ مَا نَعْرِفُ بِاسْمِكَ اللَّهُمَّ فَقَالَ:‏ اكْتُبْ مِنْ مُحَمَّدٍ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا لَوْ عَلِمْنَا أَنَّكَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ لاَتَّبَعْنَاكَ وَلَكِنِ اكْتُبِ اسْمَكَ وَاسْمَ أَبِيكَ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم:‏ اكْتُبْ مِنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ‏.‏ فَاشْتَرَطُوا عَلَى النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنَّ مَنْ جَاءَ مِنْكُمْ لَمْ نَرُدَّهُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَمَنْ جَاءَكُمْ مِنَّا رَدَدْتُمُوهُ عَلَيْنَا فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَنَكْتُبُ هَذَا قَالَ: نَعَمْ إِنَّهُ مَنْ ذَهَبَ مِنَّا إِلَيْهِمْ فَأَبْعَدَهُ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ جَاءَنَا مِنْهُمْ سَيَجْعَلُ اللَّهُ لَهُ فَرَجًا وَمَخْرَجًا
"It has been narrated from Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah that he said: Affan narrated to us and said: Hammad ibn Salama narrated us from Thabit and he narrated on the authority of Anas (radiyallahu anh) that the Quraysh made peace with Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Among them was Suhayl ibn Amr. So Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said to Ali (radiyallahu anh):

Write "Bismillahirrahmanrrahim (in the name of Allah, most Gracious and most Merciful)!.." Suhayl said: As for "Bismillah," we do not know what is meant by "Bismillah’ir Rahman’ir Rahim" (in the name of Allah most Gracious and most Merciful). But write what we understand, i.e., "Bi ismika Allahumma (in the name. O Allah)." Then, Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Write: "From Muhammad, Rasulullah (the Messenger of Allah)." They said: If we knew that thou welt the Messenger of Allah, we would follow you. Therefore, write your name and the name of your father. So Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Write "From Muhammad ibn Abdullah." They laid the condition on Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) that anyone who joined them from the Muslims, the Meccans would not return him, and anyone who joined you (the Muslims) from them, you would send him back to them. The Companions said: O Messenger of Allah, should we write this? He said: Yes. One who goes away from us to join them-may Allah keep him away! and one who comes to join us from them (and is sent back) Allah will provide him relief and a way of escape."
(Muslim, Hadith no: 1784)

Nawawi (rahimahullah) explained the incident in the following manner:

وَإِنَّمَا وَافَقَهُمْ فِي هَذِهِ الْأُمُورِ لِلْمَصْلَحَةِ الْمُهِمَّةِ الْحَاصِلَةِ بِالصُّلْحِ مَعَ أَنَّهُ لَا مَفْسَدَةَ فِي هَذِهِ الْأُمُورِ أَمَّا الْبَسْمَلَةُ وَبِاسْمِكَ اللَّهُمَّ فَمَعْنَاهُمَا وَاحِدٌ وَكَذَا قَوْلُهُ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ هُوَ أَيْضًا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَلَيْسَ فِي تَرْكِ وَصْفِ اللَّهِ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى فِي هَذَا الْمَوْضِعِ بِالرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ مَا يَنْفِي ذَلِكَ وَلَا فِي تَرْكِ وَصْفِهِ أَيْضًا صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ هُنَا بِالرِّسَالَةِ مَا يَنْفِيهَا فَلَا مَفْسَدَةَ فِيمَا طَلَبُوهُ وَإِنَّمَا كَانَتِ المفسدة تكون لو طلبوا أن يكتب مالا يَحِلُّ مِنْ تَعْظِيمِ آلِهَتِهِمْ وَنَحْوِ ذَلِكَ

"We are aware that (Rasulullah during the Treaty of Hudaybiyah) accepted the conditions (of the Mushrikin which they insisted upon) in this matter due to the important Maslahat which is obtained by the Sulh (treaty). At the same time there was no Mafsadah (evil) in this matter. As for "Basmalah" and Bismika Allahumma (with the name of You, O Allah)", both are the same for us. Likewise his saying; "Muhammad ibn Abdullah" who is also "Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)". As there is nothing indicates abandoning using these attributes of Rahman and Rahim to be negated from attributing Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala with them likewise there is nothing that indicates abandoning using the attribute for the Risalah (prophethood) of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) to be negated his Risalah. So there is no Mafsadah in (accepting) it. However there would be Mafsadah if they (i.e., the Mushrikin of Makkah) had requested to be written anything that is not Halaal (lawful) or Tadhim (glorify) their deities and its similar." (Nawawi, Sharhu Sahih’il Muslim, 12/139)

Nawawi stated that if there were conditions in the Treaty of Hudaybiyah as glorifying the idols which is obvious Kufr, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) would have not signed it. However there is no statement of Kufr in the text of treaty. There is no indication in the Hadith that accepting the offer of the Mushrikin that changing "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim" to "Bismika Allahumma" and also changing "Muhammad, Rasulullah (the Messenger of Allah)" to "Muhammad ibn Abdullah".

Allah Ta’ala stated in Surat’ul Kafirun:


قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ وَلَا أَنَا عَابِدٌ مَّا عَبَدتُّمْ وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ
"Say: O disbelievers! I worship not that which ye worship. Nor will ye worship that which I worship. And I will not worship that which ye worship. Nor will ye worship that which I worship. To you be your Din (religion, way), and to me mine." (al-Kafirun 109/1-6)

Abu Salih narrated Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anhuma ajmain) saying:

"Kuffar (the Quraysh) said to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam): "O Muhammad, if you kiss one of our gods (as you Istilaam; kiss Hajar’ul Aswad), we shall confirm you(r God). Thereupon, this Surah was brought down by Jibril (alayhi salam). They lose their hope and started oppressing and torturing him (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashab."

This was narrated by Qurtubi in the Tafsir of the Surat’ul Kafirun. Qurtubi also narrated similar to it in the Tafsir of the Ayaat al-Isra 17/73-75 in which Allah Ta’ala stated:

وَإِن كَادُواْ لَيَفْتِنُونَكَ عَنِ الَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ لِتفْتَرِيَ عَلَيْنَا غَيْرَهُ وَإِذاً لاَّتَّخَذُوكَ خَلِيلاً وَلَوْلاَ أَن ثَبَّتْنَاكَ لَقَدْ كِدتَّ تَرْكَنُ إِلَيْهِمْ شَيْئاً قَلِيلاً إِذاً لَّأَذَقْنَاكَ ضِعْفَ الْحَيَاةِ وَضِعْفَ الْمَمَاتِ ثُمَّ لاَ تَجِدُ لَكَ عَلَيْنَا نَصِيراً
"And they indeed strove hard to beguile thee away from that wherewith We had revealed unto thee, that thou shouldst invent other than it against Us; in that case, they would certainly have made thee (their) friend! And had We not given thee strength, thou wouldst nearly have inclined to them a little. In that case We should have made thee taste an equal portion (of punishment) in this life, and an equal portion in death: and moreover thou wouldst have found none to help thee against Us!" (al-Isra 17/73-75)

It is not possible for Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) to state/commit Kufr even if it was for the sake of Maslahat (benefit). Allah Ta’ala warned him harshly with the harsh punishment. Since Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is Masum (innocent), this harsh threat is actually addressed to his Ummah through him. All of these indicate that the claims of the Ahl’ud Dalalah (the People of Misguidance) regarding the contracts & agreements in which they bring the Treaty of Hudaybiyah as proof is a baseless, vain claim. The Prophet of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is far distant from such ugly claim.
Whosoever desires الْعِزَّةَ al-Izzah (honour, power and glory) then to Allah belong all الْعِزَّةَ al-Izzah [and one can get honour, power and glory only by obeying and worshiping Allah (Alone)]. To Him ascend (all) الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ al-Kalim al-Tayyib (the goodly words), and الْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ al-Amal al-Saalih (the righteous deeds) exalt it (the goodly words i.e., the goodly words are not accepted by Allah unless and until they are followed by good deeds). (Fatir 35/10)
