The question Daniel Haqiqatjou should ask the Madkhalis

“So when We said to the angels: Prostrate to Adam they did prostrate, but Iblis (did it not). He refused and he was proud, and he was one of the ungrateful (l-kafirina).” (Qur’an 2:33)

The question that Daniel Haqiqatjou , in fact that all Muslims should ask the adherents of the Madkhali sect is the following:

Based upon the foundational text, the Qur’an, the above verse mentions Iblis failing to follow the ‘amr, the command of Allah (swt).

So when Iblis failed to follow the command of Allah (swt) was he

A) an Ungrateful Muslim?

B) a Kafir?

Something to ponder as it has theological consequences. This also has consequences for rulers who disobey the commands of Allah (swt).

Brother Daniel Haqiqatjou is fearless is the face of secularist, feminist, lgbtq+ and addresses important issues. Sure he can be abrasive and rough around the edges, but the same can be said of all of us from time to time.

It is my sincere du’a that Daniel and other Muslims will re-think this whole so called ‘Salafiyyah’ and their approach to Islam. The good thing about brother Daniel is he argues from a position of world views, and Islam being a holistic worldview that is the panacea for the world’s many ills. He argues effectively why Islam in particular.

My sincere du’a and hope is that he will also take a step back and begin to think about what approach with in Islam is the most cogent theologically. Which approach with in Islam makes hellfire a temporary sojourn and takes away the sting of hellfire?

Surely this has been the cause of moral malaise among a great many Muslims? Never mind if I sin I will eventually go to heaven.

Even famous Saudi Daaiyah are starting to understand the clear text of the Qur’an. They are realizing that the interpretations given by many of their scholars are leading Muslims down a dangerous and unrighteous path.

May Allah (swt) bless, protect, and strength brother Daniel and support him from places he did not expect and continue to refine his character (where needed) and our character (where needed) and may Allah (swt) help him to open the eyes of many. May he also spend time to reflect upon the theological and political positions of many who are claimants to the haqq. Amin
