When You Disobey Allah

When You Disobey Allah


When You Disobey Allah


Somebody who knows the truth doesn't mean that, that person is a Muslim. It's a very deep point here. What is a Muslim then? Someone who submits to the truth, because the meaning of Islam is not knowledge, it is submission, that's what Islam means. To merely know the truth doesn't make you a Muslim. Satan knows the truth, Satan accepts everything, in his heart he knows it conceptually. Think about it, does Satan deny that Allah is God? No, in fact Satan affirms Allah is my God and Satan is saying in the Quran affirms that the prophets are prophets, Satan does not deny that Adam is a prophet, Satan does not deny that Allah sends prophets, he knows this, Satan does not deny that there's a day of judgment "Allow me to live until the day of judgment", in fact Satan even worships Allah occasionally because he makes prayer to Allah to allow him to live, if he didn't worship Allah he wouldn't make prayer to Allah, yet is Satan a believer (Mu'min)?, does Satan have faith (Imaan) in Allah? Obviously not, Allah calls him a disbeliever (Kafir). How is he a disbeliever (Kafir) if he knows Allah to be true and knows the prophets to be prophets and knows that Allah gives life and resurrect them, how is he a disbeliever (Kafir)? Allah says, he refused to obey when Allah told him to do something, he was too arrogant to prostrate and therefore a disbeliever (Kafir) can be somebody who doesn't know the truth, a disbeliever (Kafir) can be somebody who doesn't recognize the truth, a disbeliever (Kafir) can be somebody who rejects the truth but a disbeliever (Kafir) can also be somebody who knows the truth but for some reason, whatever that reason might be, refuses to act upon it.

And this gets to the very controversial issue, I'm just going to mention it, make your mind stimulated but unfortunately I don't have time to whip up a nice academic talk now, I give that in other places. But what do we say then to the Muslim who knows Islam meaning he calls himself Muslim who knows Islam to be true but he never does anything that he is required to do? Think about the question here, the Muslim who knows, meaning he calls himself Muslim, what is the difference between Abu Talib and such a Muslim? In that they both recognized Allah is one, Abu Talib did not worship idols we know this, he knows idolatry is ridiculous, so they recognize Allah is one, they recognize the prophets (SAW) is a true prophet but both of them are refusing to submit to the laws of Islam, the only difference is that the one says I'm a Muslim and the other in fact the one who says he's not a Muslim linguistically it makes more sense because he understands what a Muslim is and so he said "I haven't submitted so I'm not a Muslim", whereas the one who says he's a Muslim is saying I submit but in action he's not submitting at all, and therefore, I know this is a deep topic but the fact of the matter is somebody who says he or she is a Muslim but never ever does anything of this religion, he doesn't pray, he doesn't fast, he doesn't give charity 'Zakah', he doesn't do anything of the 'Sharia' of this religion, this theoretical saying "I'm a Muslim" is not much different than the faith 'Imaan' quote-unquote of Abu Talib and Satan.
