My words to Robert Spencer
By Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy

The enemies of Islam, under the pretext of liberalism and freedom of speech, don’t mind slandering the Prophet of Islam, belying his Koran, and also attacking Allah their Creator! They even went to the extent of burning the Koran!

Those who challenge Allah and His Prophet are cursed; they are beset by sin, and covered with ignominy as were the like before them; and there awaits them a condign punishment. On the day when Allah shall resurrect them all together and inform them of what they did. Allah has kept account for it, while they have forgotten it.

As we read in the Koran:

Surely those who oppose Allah and His Messenger shall be frustrated as those before them were frustrated. Now We have sent down signs, clear signs; and for the unbelievers awaits a humbling chastisement, upon the Day when Allah shall raise them up all together, then He shall tell them what they did. Allah has numbered it, and they have forgotten it. Allah is witness over everything (Al-mujadilah 5-6).

Robert Spencer, you have acted rebelliously. You think you have something to stand upon, but verily you are an impertinent liar. It is about time that you know the terrible consequences of your arrogance that made you mock Allah’s signs to the core. Those who deny Allah’s revelations and refuse to recognize His signs shall be put to torture. Allah will expose them to the protracted and dreadful conflagration. As often as their skins are consumed, Allah replaces them with new skins so that they taste the merciless but just punishment.

The Koran says:

Surely those who disbelieve in Our signs We shall certainly roast them at a Fire; as often as their skins are wholly burned, We shall give them in exchange other skins, that they may taste, the chastisement. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise (Al-Nsa’, 5).

Don’t ever think that Allah is unaware of what you do. He knows exactly what your inmost being suggests secretly to your mind and what your breast forges. His angels are closer to you than your own neck vain. Two angels sit as receivers by your sides right and left to note your actions. Not a word you utter but there is a watcher by you ready to record it. And then, there comes the occasion when you sink into stupor of death; and then you are told, ‘this is what you tried hard to evade.’ And in the Day of Resurrection you will be driven to your destiny by one of the watchful angels, accompanied by another watchful angel to bear witness. It will be said to you, ‘Indeed you were heedless of this. Allah will tell you, ‘Now We have removed from you, your covering, and sharp is your sight this day’ And the angel, your companion will say, ‘Here is his record ready with me.’ Allah will say to the angels, ‘Cast into Hell everyone who denied Allah, who had been headstrong, and pertinacious in adhering to his own wrong. Put him to the torment that is laid upon the damned. Satan will say, ‘My Creator, I never incited him to evil, but he was himself in error far astray.’
Then Allah will say, ‘do not altercate with each other in my presence, I had already in advance sent you the clear warning of the consequences of your conduct. The Sentence that comes from Me cannot be changed, and I am not unjust to the slaves.’ Allah will further add, ‘Upon the day shall come when We ask Hell, are you now to the full? and it will say, ‘Are there no more?’”

Now, enemy of Allah, listen to the Koranic verses addressed to you and the like of you indicating the above:

We indeed created man; and We know what his soul whispers within him, and We are nearer to him than the jugular vein. When the two angels meet together, sitting one on the right, and one on the left, not a word he utters, but by him is an observer ready. And death’s agony comes in truth; this is what you have been avoiding!’ And the Trumpet shall be blown; that is the Day of Threat. And every soul shall come, and with it a driver and a witness. ‘Indeed you were heedless of this; therefore We have removed from thee thy covering, and so thy sight today is piercing.’ And his comrade shall say, ‘This is what I have made ready.’ ‘Cast, you twain, into Hell every stubborn disbeliever, every hinderer of the good, transgressor, doubter, who set up with Allah another god; therefore, you twain, cast him into the terrible chastisement.’
And his comrade (Satan) shall say, ‘Our Lord I made not him insolent, but he was in far error,’ He shall say, ‘Dispute not before me! For I sent you before the threat. The Word is not changed with Me; I wrong not My servants.’
Upon the day We shall say unto Hell, ‘Are you filled?’ It will say, ‘Are there any more to come?’ (Qaf,17-30).

Now, Robert Spencer, you wallow in the mire of the neoconservatives, Judo-Christian coalition, Zionists, evangelicals, Religious Right, and Republicans joining these groups, seeking their help and financial support. Although all these groups form the religious and political fabric of America, they share in common enmity to Islam and Muslims. Their hatred is well recorded and documented. Now you enjoy their financial support and protection, but what would happen when you are left alone in your grave then resurrected to stand before Allah to receive your accountability?

Don’t you Know that the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception? The donations you are enjoying now and the fame you are getting by spreading falsehood about Islam shall not avail you against Allah.

Allah says in the Koran:

As for the unbelievers, their riches shall not avail them, neither their children, against Allah; those are the inhabitants of the Fire (Al-Imran, 116).

In another place we read in the Koran:

The unbelievers though they possessed all that is in the earth, and the like of it with it, to ransom themselves from the torment of the Fire, it would not be accepted from them; for them awaits a painful chastisement. They will desire to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it; for them awaits a lasting chastisement (Al-Maidah, 36, 37).

How dare you attack Allah your Creator, and rebels against His teachings? Allah is exalted in power, rank, and dignity. Allah is full of might and majesty, able to enforce His will.

How dare you challenge Allah and He has decreed: “It is I and My messengers who must prevail.”

Listen to the Koran:

 ‘I shall assuredly be the victor, I and My Messengers.’ Surely Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty (Al-Mujadelah, 21).

The plot against Islam from the West is totally known to us. But tell me, what is your aim exactly? Are you trying to convert Muslims to Christianity or Judaism? If so, you are then totally out of your mind. You think Muslims will listen to your babble and gabble, to your raving and nonsense. Robert Spencer, you are but fooling yourself, Allah is above you recording every evil act you are doing.

Robert Spencer, you measured not Allah with His true measure. It is only yourself you destroy, but you are not aware. As it seems, neither your understanding, nor your ears, nor your eyes do their proper work. You twist what you see and hear, and go deeper and deeper into the mire.

Listen to the threat of the Koran:

If thou couldst see when they are stationed before the Fire, and they say, ‘Would that we might be returned, and then not cry lies to the signs of our Lord, but that we might be among the believers!’
No; that which they were concealing before has now appeared to them; and even if they were returned, they would again commit the very thing they were prohibited, they are truly liars (Al-Maidah 27, 28).

You are but a toy implementing a devilish Zionist conspiracy against Islam and Muslims. Characterized by Satanic attributes, and high ability of fabricating lies, your masters found in you a suitable tool for spreading dissension between Muslims and extend mischief in the land. Seeking fame and few dollars more, you accepted the dirty work and sold yourself to them. But the reality is that you sold yourself to the devil who in turn will take you by the nose to Hell Fire. Satan has gained mastery over you. He decked out fair to you what you were doing. .He promises you and fills you with fancies, but there is nothing Satan promises you except delusion. He desires to lead you astray into a far error. Whoso takes Satan to him as a friend, has surely suffered a manifest loss.

Thus does Allah make for every Prophet an enemy among the criminals.

Even so We have appointed for every Prophet an enemy among the criminals; but thy Lord suffices as a guide and as a helper (Al-Furqan, 31).

Are you ignorant and fool enough as not to know the truth? Are you mocking at the Koran and its verses? Allah mocks at you and makes you increase in your wrong-doing to wander blindly. You have purchased error for guidance, and you will never be guided.

Allah gives you plenty of rope in your trespasses in order that you commit yourself to loss in the maze of error. Allah left you in darkness. You are deaf, blind and dumb unable to see the truth.

Allah shall mock them, and shall lead them on blindly wandering in their insolence. You have bought error at the price of guidance, and their commerce has not profited them, and they are not right-guided. They are deaf, dumb and blind, so they shall not return (to the right path) (Al-Baqarah 15, 16, 18).

You stand similitude exact of cattle, in fact even worse. Woe to you for what you insolently ascribe to Allah. You have no insight. You don’t hear or understand. You are only like cattle – nay you are even farther astray.

Or deemest thou that most of them hear or understand? They are but as the cattle; nay they are further astray from the way (Al-Furqan, 44).

Allah has made for Hell many of the jinn and men like Robert Spenser whom He had foreknown that they would be born to be losers. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not, and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like cattle – nay further astray: for they are heedless.

We have created for Hell many jinn and men; they have hearts, but understand not with them; they have eyes, but perceive not with them; they have ears, but they hear not with them. They are like cattle; nay, rather they are further astray. Those – they are heedless (Al-A’raf, 179).

Allah shall gather His enemies on the Day of Resurrection on their faces blind, dumb and deaf. Their abode will be Hell, whenever it abates, he shall increase for them the blaze.

And We shall muster them on the Resurrection Day upon their faces blind, dumb, deaf; their refuge shall be Hell, and whensoever it abates we shall increase for them the Blaze. That is their recompense because they disbelieved in Our signs… (Al-Isra’, 98).

You have assumed the worst position in the worldly life and Hereafter and have chosen the worst path which has sealed your fate.

Those who shall be mustered to Hell upon their faces – they shall be worse in place, and gone further astray from the way (Al-Furqan, 34).

You are hostile to truth and righteousness. You slander the Prophet and belie the Koran. You lead astray from the right path of Allah. You will suffer the consequence of your own sinful deeds; for Allah is not unjust in the least to any of His servants.

And among men there is such a one that disputes concerning Allah without knowledge or guidance, or an illumination Book, turning his side to lead astray from Allah’s way; for him is degradation in this world, and on the Resurrection Day We shall let him taste the chastisement of the burning. That is for what thy hands have forwarded and for that Allah is never unjust unto His servants (Al-Hajj 8-10).

Robert Spencer, you follow the footsteps of Satan, you became the instrument of evil. You are in false pride and opposition. You plunge into Koranic subjects of which you have empty knowledge. You cause pain to Muslims, you spread division among them. But Allah defends the believers and detests the unfaithful and treacherous like you.

Assuredly Allah will defend those who believe; surely Allah loves not any ungrateful traitor (Al-Hajj, 38).

As for us, Muslims, our Lord has guided us to a straight path, a right religion. We live on this earth only to please Allah. We live in piety seeking His pleasure. The cornerstone of Islamic culture is piety, high morality, simplicity and modesty.

God-fearing or piety is a high state of heart, which keeps one conscious of Allah’s presence, and it motivates the Muslim to perform righteous deeds and avoid those, which are forbidden.

The essence of god-fearing is to make a shield which guards against Allah’s anger and punishment. That shield is to obey His commandments and abstain from His punishment.

Allah says in the Koran:

 “O, you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all he has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared (by obeying Him, be thankful to Him and remembering Him always) and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims with complete submission to Allah.)” [Al-Imran, 102).

So Allah is meant to be obeyed, and not disobeyed; remembered at all times, and not forgotten; and to be thanked; and we are not to be ungrateful to Him.

Piety alone is the criterion of greatness in the sight of Allah and not wealth or material objects.

The Koran says:

Surely the noblest among you in the sight of Allah is the most god-fearing of you. Allah is all-Knowing, All-aware (Al-Hujurat, 13).

Piety is a means by which a believer performs righteous deeds; piety causes the righteous deed to be accepted by Allah.

Allah says: “O you who believe! Fear Allah and always speak the truth. He will direct you to do righteous and correct actions and will forgive you your sins and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement.” (Al-Ahzab: 70).

and: “Nay, but whoso fulfils his covenant and fears Allah, Allah loves the god-fearing (Al-Imran, 76).

The mindset of the Islamic culture stems from the conviction that Allah is our Creator and Sustainer. Hence in this short stay on earth we are to serve Him alone. To Muslims Islam is the guiding light and driving force. The religion will dictate and all else will follow. Life is regarded as a journey wherein the traveler is not too concerned about the luxuries and comforts of the earthly life.  The traveler is focused towards his destination – Day of Judgment. Yet as a result of one’s obedience to Allah during his earthly life, one will be blessed with true peace, serenity and contentment, and a greater reward in the Hereafter – Paradise.

The Koran says:

Say: ‘My prayer, my ritual sacrifice, my living, my dying, – all belongs to Allah, the Lord of All-Being (Al-An’am, 162).

Contrary to this, the cornerstone of the western culture is immorality and extravagance. The culture where a couple lives like man and wife but never marry is almost the norm. While there are numerous aspects that highlight the immorality of western culture, perhaps the most visible and marked expression of this culture is in its dressing. Shorter tighter and more revealing is the rule by which the dress code keeps changing. Western clothing instead of covering and distracting any wrongful glances, is by and large designed for flirting, attracting and arousing.

The mindset of western culture is that the purpose of life is worldly enjoyment. Every comfort and luxury must be attained at all costs. Everything centers on entertainment, chasing more fun and chasing more fun. There is no mission in life. Merely the pursuit of temporal pleasure permeates every cell of the mind. The constant pursuit of greater comfort and luxury demands loads of money. Thus life revolves around making money. If looking after elderly parents spoils the weekends and holidays they should be dispatched to the old-age homes. If children come in the way of earning extra money, they can be entrusted to day-care centers where they are treated almost like mechanical objects. There is no concern for proper upbringing. For money anything could be sacrificed – parents, children and even religion. It is an extremely hollow existence without any peace or contentment, which only stops when one is placed in the hollow of the grave!

Robert Spencer, you live in this distorted society, you don’t see reality, but only money and fame on the expense of truth and honesty. You don’t know why you are here; you don’t know the wisdom of creation. You made a bad choice by setting Allah, your Creator, as your rival! You reject the Islamic faith, invent lies and go after false ideas, your penalty will be worse than that of other people. Allah is All-Mighty, severe in punishment, and terrible in retribution.

Nay, but you have not tasted Allah’s torment.

It will not be in your power, and those who hired you, to frustrate Allah’s plan; all you will do is to go further and further, deeper and deeper into your Hell.

And those who strive against Our signs to void them – they shall be the inhabitants of Hell (Al-hajj, 51).

According to Islamic tradition, the enemies of Allah and the sinners will be tortured in the grave. They will encounter two terrifying angels, Munkar and Nakir, recognized by their bluish faces, their huge teeth and their wild hair. The grave of the sinners will be transformed into an oppressive, constricting space. The earth begins to weigh down heavily upon the sentient corpses, and Allah will order the earth to close in on them until the rib cage collapses; worms begin to nibble away at the flesh, causing horrible pain. The angels will also torture them by hitting them with hammers between their ears. Had the mountains been hit with these hammers, they would have melted away.

The enemy of Allah will be put into a box from Fire, and it will be opened before it the gate of hell. The grave will become a ditch of Hell.

Robert Spencer, what are you waiting for, die now and see what is in store for you.
