Rebuttal to Sam Shamoun’s article Can They Disbelieve in the Last Day and be Safe?

 

Shamoun wrote:

The Quran exhorted Muhammad and his followers to forgive those who did not believe in the days of Allah:

Say (O Muhammad SAW) to the believers to forgive those who (harm them and) hope not for the Days of Allah (i.e. His Recompense), that He may recompense people according to what they have earned (i.e. to punish these disbelievers, who harm the believers).

Whosoever does a good deed, it is for his ownself, and whosoever does evil, it is against (his ownself). Then to your Lord you will be made to return. S. 45:14-15 Hilali-Khan

In the immediate context it seems to be certain that by "the Days of Allah" the author meant the time when Allah will bring all mankind into judgment in order to repay them for what they have said and done. At the very least the last day is naturally included within this phrase since this happens to be one of Allah’s days.

Hence, the meaning of the text is quite straightforward: Muslims are to forgive and not harass anyone who denies that there is a last day in which Allah will judge humanity.

 

 

My response:

 

The meaning that you have derived is very wrong. You incorrectly highlight the parts of the verses that prove your point. Here is the verse again with my highlights.

 

Say (O Muhammad SAW) to the believers to forgive those who (harm them and) hope not for the Days of Allah (i.e. His Recompense), that He may recompense people according to what they have earned (i.e. to punish these disbelievers, who harm the believers).

Two criteria of those people have been mentioned.

1. Those who harm them

2. Those who reject the last day

 

 

Maybe this is a deliberate trick of yours or maybe you lack basic English skills.

 

The remainder of the article by Shamoun becomes useless and therefore, there is no need to reply to it as the above explanation covers all of his imagination.
