Understanding Taghut/Rabb/Ilaha of the ‘Muslim’ Govt
The Certain Knowledge of Deen of all times
Did Allah send messengers to all nations?
Yes! (Al-Quran 16:36, 35:24)
What is the basic message to these nations?
Worship Allah and reject TAGHUT (Al-Quran 16:36)
What is the basic meaning of the message that Allah sent Rasulullah Sala Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam with?
Worship None but Allah alone. (Al-Quran 9:31)
Did Islam or Deen of Allah just start from Muhammad Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam?
No! It started since Adam Alaihi Wa Sallam.
Did Allah send Musa Alaihi Wa Sallam with Islam or something else?
The Evidence – Al-Quran 42:13
He has ordained for you of Deen what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus – to establish the Deen and not be divided therein. Difficult for those who associate others with Allah is that to which you invite them. Allah chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back [to Him].
তিনি তোমাদের জন্যে দ্বীনের ক্ষেত্রে সে পথই নিধারিত করেছেন, যার আদেশ দিয়েছিলেন নূহকে, যা আমি প্রত্যাদেশ করেছি আপনার প্রতি এবং যার আদেশ দিয়েছিলাম ইব্রাহীম, মূসা ও ঈসাকে এই মর্মে যে, তোমরা দ্বীনকে প্রতিষ্ঠিত কর এবং তাতে অনৈক্য সৃষ্টি করো না। আপনি মূশরেকদেরকে যে বিষয়ের প্রতি আমন্ত্রণ জানান, তা তাদের কাছে দুঃসাধ্য বলে মনে হয়। আল্লাহ যাকে ইচ্ছা মনোনীত করেন এবং যে তাঁর অভিমুখী হয়, তাকে পথ প্রদর্শন করেন।

Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists.
ইব্রাহীম ইহুদী ছিলেন না এবং নাসারাও ছিলেন না, কিক্তু তিনি ছিলেন â€˜হানীফâ€™ অর্থাৎ, সব মিথ্যা ধর্মের প্রতি বিমুখ এবং আত্নসমর্পণকারী, এবং তিনি মুশরিক ছিলেন না।
Evidence – Al-Qur’an 3:52)
But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, “Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah ?” The disciples said,” We are supporters for Allah . We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].
অতঃপর ঈসা (আঃ) যখন বণী ইসরায়ীলের কুফরী সম্পর্কে উপলব্ধি করতে পারলেন, তখন বললেন, কারা আছে আল্লাহর পথে আমাকে সাহায্য করবে? সঙ্গী-সাথীরা বললো, আমরা রয়েছি আল্লাহর পথে সাহায্যকারী। আমরা আল্লাহর প্রতি ঈমান এনেছি। আর তুমি সাক্ষী থাক যে, আমরা হুকুম কবুল করে নিয়েছি।

The Evidence: Tafsir Ibne Kathir on this Ayah:
Imam Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Jarir At-Tabari recorded a Hadith via several chains of narration, from Adi bin Hatim, may Allah be pleased with him, who became Christian during the time of Jahiliyyah. …………………..
Adi, who was one of the chiefs of his people (the tribe of Tai’) and whose father, Hatim At-Ta’i, was known for his generosity, went to Al-Madinah. When the people announced his arrival, Adi went to the Messenger of Allah wearing a silver cross around his neck.
The Messenger of Allah recited this Ayah;
Adi commented, “I said, `They did not worship them.”
The Prophet said,
“Yes they did. They (rabbis and monks) prohibited the allowed for them (Christians and Jews) and allowed the prohibited, and they obeyed them. This is how they worshipped them.”
‘Adi ibn Hatim reported: I came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, while I had a crucifix of gold around my neck. The Prophet said, “O ‘Adi! Remove this idol from yourself!” I heard him reciting the verse in Surat al-Tawbah, “They have taken their priests and rabbis as Lords besides Allah.” (9:31) The Prophet said, “As for them, they did not worship them, but rather when they made something lawful for them, they considered it lawful. When they made something unlawful for them, they considered it unlawful.”

Understanding the Taghut of ‘Muslim’ authorities – A Simple Math
Is doing just one specific act against Allah make the Rabai (A Muslim Ulema of earlier time), Rabb?
Then how come a person remains a Muslim today when he just not only making Haram to Halal but he is totally reversing the Law of Allah? How come an Imam is arrested to conduct the marriage of a 13 years old girl? (as one example). Who made this marriage Haram?
Many governments of ‘Muslim’ countries.
Then aren’t those people who enact, implement those laws in a govt. claiming themselves as Rabb, when it makes Haram what Allah made Halal?
Clearly it is. But why does our ‘Ulema’ say they are Muslim? Is it because they say, “La Ilaha Illa Allah”?
Well, do you not understand from the above evidences that those Rabais (as they were the Muslim Scholars) were the Muslims of that times yet Rasulullah Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam term them as Rabb? Do they yet remain Muslim only because they say, “La Ilaha Illa Allah”?
I don’t think so.
Therefore, if making something Halal of what Allah made Haram makes a Rabai as Rabb, then the sames applies to everybody!
It’s Simple Math!
Then how come a scholar study their Deen for 20/30/40 years yet do not understand this simple math?
You should have put this question to Rasululllah Salla Allaihi Wa Sallam though He already answered your question when He said that there will be the Scholars who will be ‘the worst creatures under the sky!’ (Baihaki, Saheeh)
And that’s how it make sense!
So, what’s wrong with you?
How do you judge?
