120- NEVER WILL THE JEWS OR THE CHRISTIANS BE PLEASED WITH YOU UNLESS YOU FOLLOW THEIR CREED, SAY: “ALLAH’S GUIDANCE IS THE RIGHT GUIDANCE”. AND IF YOU FOLLOW THEIR DESIRES AFTER HAVING THE KNOWLEDGE WHICH CAME TO YOU, YOU WILL NEVER FIND IN ALLAH NEITHER AN ALLY NOR A HELPER.
Allah the Highest is our Greatest Ally and Supporter. This is as long as we follow His Guidance. We have received the right guidance and no other guidance is right for us. Going astray from this Guidance in the Quran and the Teachings of Allah’s messenger, prayer and peace upon him, means that we also Loose Allah the Highest from our side.
The Muslims are going through a phase of weakness, and after being followed, we follow others. We see in other nations which have technological and military superiority examples to follow, and we try even to come under their wing and protection.
They might use us, sell us things for profit, use our wealth, and pretend to be our friends and allies, but they are not and they will never be. Not until we follow their creed and way of life. If we do, we loose Allah the Highest from our side.
Having received Allah’s Right Guidance, we have no excuse for doing that, and we should never be tempted.
Learning from anyone science and technology or ways to improve our life, business, wealth and power is good. Indeed, the Amawy Khalifas learned methods of Administration from the Romans. Abasi Khalifas wanted to learn from other civilizations and they started by translating their books, and to encourage the translation, they paid to the translator the weight of the book in gold. Some translators wrote on Heavy leather and other heavy materials to make more money, and they were still paid the book’s weight in gold.
There is not harm in learning from others, even from our enemies. It is different however to follow their creed, faith and way of life. For then we loose Allah the Highest from our side.
