Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Are muslim followers allowed to follow missions, such as the nirankari mission. the mission is not a religion but teaches us the way of life such as phillospy?

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Follow another Mission in life

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Al Maidah verse 3:

Today I (Allah) have perfected your deen (way of life) for you and completed my Blessing on you and approved Islam as your way of life.

 

Beloved Brother in Islam, when The All-Knowing, All-Wise Allah, our Lord, Creator, and Sustainer has ordained and approved the perfect way of life for the believers; why would one choose a man-made mission or way of life in preference to the Divine guidance of the Perfect way of life??? There is no aspect of life which is not covered by the Perfect way of life called Islam, from governance of the population to the soul of an individual, from the boardroom to the bedroom, from ones inception at birth to the eternal and everlasting life of the Hereafterevery single aspect of life finds perfect guidance in the Divine Guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws)!

 

For one who has professed belief in Allah and the Last Day to choose any other way of life in preference to Islam would imply that (I take refuge in Allah from stating this!) man has more knowledge and wisdom than The All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord of the Worlds!

 

It would indeed defy all logic, wisdom and intelligence if one, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, were to choose an imperfect man-made mission or way of life in preference to the Absolutely Perfect Way of Life called Al-Islam! Why would one even think of choosing a way which is human-made and thus inferior to that which is Divine-made and thus Absolutely Superior?

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 19:

Indeed, Islam in the ONLY right way of life in the Sight of Allah.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 85:

And whoever adopts any other than this way of Islam, that way shall not be accepted from him and in the Hereafter, he shall be among the losers.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and sincere well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
