The Tragic Death of Rashad Khalifa, a Great Servant of God
The trick Rashad is to corrupt people using his corrupt translation.. let's examine it ourself.
YUSUF ALI -- 2:30] Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."
RASHAD -- 2:30] Recall that your Lord said to the angels, "I am placing a representative (a temporary god) on Earth." They said, "Will You place therein one who will spread evil therein and shed blood, while we sing Your praises, glorify You, and uphold Your absolute authority?" He said, "I know what you do not know."
His claim From his book "Quran: The Final Testament" p.640
[The word "Rashad" occurs in 40:29 & 38. The word "Khalifa" occurs in 2:30 and 38:26. The first "Khalifa", namely, Satan, while the second occurence (Sura 38), refers to a human "Khalifa". If we add the numbers of suras and verses of "Rashad" (40:29,38) and "Khalifa" (38:26) we get 40+29+38+38+26=171=19x9]
Interestingly, the translation by Rashad for Surah Al-Baqarah ayat 30 said that Allah wants to put a representative which is Satan and in parenthesis TEMPORARY GOD!
Masha Allah!!! May Allah curse him!!! How could he called Satan a temporary God. God is ONE and ALWAYS ONE. SATAN IS ALWAYS HIS CREATION!!!! Secondly, is it Satan or us? Does satan shed blood? No, he wispers to the breast of the people, but not Satan himself killed people. Are we destined to be on earth? Are we the Khalifa on earth or Satan?
If you look carefully, you will see that in order to find a multiple of 19, he changed the meaning of Quran, and therefore those who read his translation will doom to disbelief. I have a question, don't you think that this is the work of Satan. Satan really likes to seek people to disbelief. Satan really likes to seek people to worship him. Satan really likes us to think he is God. Don't you think it is what Rashad did in that verse?
This is a warning to those who believe in Rashad. If you believe in Allah, then follow which one is the TRUTH.
If Allah is willing, I will continue. May Allah spread peace. May Allah gives Light to the Truth and May Allah distinguish the Truth and the False.
Since Rashad's philosophy is to destroy the belief in Sunnah and Hadith, so he sought to misinterpret the meaning of Hadith to those non-Arabic speaker or at least those who knows nothing in Arabic. let's examine.
RASHAD 7:185] "...Does it ever occur to them that the end of their life may be near? Which HADITH, beside this, do they believe in?"
YUSUF ALI 7:185]"...(Do they not see) that it may well be that their terms is nigh drawing to an end? In what MESSAGE after this will they then believe?"
and again, the WORD HADITH has been used in it. If you read it carefully, you will the discover the the MESSAGE Allah is talking about is the Quran, the Message of Allah.
There are a lot more words of Hadith with he transliterate them to confuse others and with my amazement he didn't translate some of them because he knew if he did, they would be questioned... let's look at it.
YUSUFALI 56:81] Is it such a MESSAGE that ye would hold in light esteem?
RASHAD 56:81] Are you disregarding this NARRATION?
You could see here that Rashad didn't transliterate them to be Hadith, but NARRATION. Why is that, I wonder? do you see some inconsistency. Alhamdulillah, Allah has shown the one of the tricks of him. That is not the only verse in his translation that he hid the word Hadith to be narration where he could. there are numerous places. SO BEWARE.
