Friday Sermon 13 October 1995
No verse of 'The Holy Quran' tells us that the angels bear the Divine Throne. Albeit such narrations are found in some books of history and exegesis which mention such angels that lift the Throne like strange and wondrous myths and legends. Such narrations are attributed to the Prophet of Allah. Any self-contradictory Hadith that also contradicts the subjects addressed by the Quran cannot be a Hadith of the Prophet of Allah. It can never be the words of the Holy Prophet. One who has studied the authentic books and the pure life of the Holy Prophet cannot for one moment accept such narrations as Ahadith. It is a geat evil to attribute such fantasies to the Holy Prophet ﷺ. Any Hadith which clashes with the narrative of 'The Noble Quran' and the personality of the Holy Prophet is worth being rejected because it cannot be the words of the Holy Prophet. The narrations which present strange and wonderful fantasies of angels and the Throne are even stranger than the mythical legends of Greece. 'The Noble Quran' is completely pure from such nonsense. In this age the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) has freed us from such evil and foolish thinking, through the light of Allah. 'The Noble Quran' makes no mention of angels lifting the Throne. He is Qayoom [the Self-subsisting], he lifts everything and he does not need to rest upon anything. By the Throne is meant His transcendental station and His transcendental attributes that are unreachable to the creation: And He it is Who created the heavens and the Earth in 6 periods and His throne rests on water that He might prove you to show which of you is best in conduct. And if thou say ‘You shall surely be raised after death’ those who disbelieve will certainly say ‘This is nothing but manifest sorcery.’ ('The Holy Quran'. Hud [Eber]: 8). The life created from water was enabled to imagine a God. The best and the highest and the greatest of the beings given life out of this water was Muhammad the Holy Prophet of Allah ﷺ and it was his heart that bore the manifestation that was unbearable for the heavens to bear, unbearable for the Earth and for the mountains but it was born by The Man*. So it was the heart of Muhammad the Prophet of Allah who bore the Divine attributes in his person. * We offered the Trust to the heavens and the Earth and the mountains but they refused to bear it but the man undertook it. Indeed he was too cruel to himself disregardful of its consequences. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Ahzab [The Confederates]: 73).
