Sample of dishonesty of our opponents

Submitted by Rashid.

On Internet I have asked our jamaat opponents:

Suppose if Saudi Arabia government says:

Ka`ba Sharif, and Madina Munwara are in our land; Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS came among us; Holy Quran was revealed in our language and dialect; we are in position to best understand Islam and decide who is Muslim and who is Kafir; for us it is not important whether non-Wahabbis recite Kalima Shahada, offer prayers 5 times a day, fast in Ramadan, pay Zakat, and perform Hajj. We declare all non-Wahabbis are Kafir.

Question: Does anyone think that this new law of Saudi Arabia government is justified in light of Holy Quran and Sunna?

In reply I mostly get deafening silence. But some time I get reply like this:

“Saudi Arabia is a tyrannical monarchy that uses and abuses the name of Islam to keep its rulers in power. Its founders were traitors who sided with the enemies of Islam [British] to get into power [from Ottomon Emperor/ Sultan]. Not much of what they do can be justified under Holy Quran and Sunna.”

So my next question to them is:

Suppose Iran government says:

All non-Shias are Kafir. Do you think this new law of Iran to declare non-Shia reciters of Kalima-Shahada is justified under Holy Quran and Sunna?

In reply I get deafening silence.

Some time in reply to my original question I get answer:

“I am sure they [Saudi Arabia government] will not do it if it were not strictly according to their interpretation of Quran and Sunnah. So the answer is yes if we agree with their interpretation of Quran and Sunnah, no if we don’t.”

So I ask them next question:
Does it mean, you will agree with Saudi Arabia government to NOT allow any non-Wahabbi reciter of Kalima-Shahada to perform Hajj?

Of course in reply I get deafening silence.

I also got this reply:
“If Saudi Arabia decides to declare some group or sect as KAFIR, they will obviously not just simply declare them KAFIR without providing justification for their decision from Quran and Sunnah (as they understand it).”

When I ask my follow up question:
If Saudi Arabia Government FOR WHAT EVER REASON declares NON-WAHABBI reciters of Kalima-Shahada INCLUDING YOU as KAFIR and STOPS you from performing Hajj, are you going to accept it that you are KAFIR and you deserve NOT to perform Hajj?

As usual I don’t get reply.

These simple questions highlight the dishonesty, and lack of moral courage so prevalent among Muslims. These opponents don’t give a straightforward answer. They know if they disagree with my hypothetical question of Saudi government decision then they have to disagree with Pakistan government decision in 1974 in which Kalima-Shahada reciters were declared non-Muslims.
