What about missionaries?

Proselytism
—————————–

There are certain missionary systems that present their religion as an ‘idol-giver’. Come to ***ism; It’ll make you ‘rich’. Come to ***ism; It’ll save your ‘job’ …etc and often the preachers do in reality offer them money, job, marriage etc. for accepting their theology.

After these transitory illusions, people even walk away from any practice of their faith. Others go looking for other religions and spiritualities trying to seek out a ‘demon’ to give them their ‘idol’.

The Noble Qur’an Says:

“The Day when there will not benefit (anyone) wealth or children. Except him who brings to Allah a sound heart (clean from idolatry and hypocrisy).” [Ash-Shu`arā’ 88-89]

If you think wealth or family will give you loving, secure relationship that will never end, give you meaning, purpose, significance and joy then you are a polytheist because that’s supposed to be only from Allah.

Allah, The Most High Says:

“There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut (idols) and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.” [Al-Baqarah 256]

Idols’re saviors who can’t save. They’re mediators who can’t mediate. Idols of the heart and body destroy people.

Allah, The Most High Says:

“Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline: or the dwellings in which ye delight – are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause;- then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious.” [At-Tawbah 24]


‘Repent’. I will close with this. Repentance is not what the proselytisers preach. It is first what we practice. It saved Adam (AS) and it can save us.
