They are pushing for a legislation in all Islamic Countries of the world to implement Amman Message as a statutory Law.

Aboobacker Musaliyar was part of this unanimous declaration that was attested by all scholars attending the Conference. Read more....It is obvious that Ammanis are trying hard to replace Islam with Ammani Cocktail Religion. If the above law is passed, it will be a serious blow to Islam.Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), Sahabah, Taba'een, Imams of Fiq, Awliya Allah and other Teachers of Islam for the past 1450 years have explained the difference between Sahih Iman, kufr, and hypocrisy. Quran also emphasizes the difference between Sahih Iman, Kufr, polytheism, deviancy and hypocrisy. If you treat everyone as a true Muslim on the basis of his verbal recitation of Kalima, misinterpreting certain Quranic verses and Ahadith, then you are destroying the base on which Islam rests. No one has the right to remove or blur these distinctions stipulated by Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).(i) It is in Quran - الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا ( Meaning - This day have I Perfected your religion For you, completed My favour upon you, And have chosen for you Islam as your religion.
(ii) It is in Quran - لَا إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ ۖ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ الرُّشْدُ مِنَ الْغَيِّ ۚ فَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِن بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَىٰ لَا انفِصَامَ لَهَا ۗ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ (Meaning - There shall be no compulsion in the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut, and believes in Allah, has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing ) (Al-Baqara - 256)You cannot make laws to treat everyone as "believer", including Christians and Jews, against the commandments of Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).Ammani scholars surely know about these facts. Why these scholars are supporting Salafists and Zionists in propagating false Ammani religion? They may be doing it for obvious reasons.We pray Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) to save Islam and Muslims from the evil intentions and actions of the enemies of Islam and those who sell their Iman for some petty worldly gains. Ameen.SAUDIS SPENDING MILLIONS OF PETRO-DOLLARS TO PROPAGATE AMMAN MESSAGAESaudi Royal Family is very active in spreading Ammanism in the world. It is obvious that they want to control 56 member countries of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) through King Abdullah II of Jordan as Khalifa e Islam. The Saudis have been very active in propagation of Amman Message right from the start.An extra-ordinary session of OIC was conducted on 7-8 December, 2005, in Makka, Saudi Arabia to support the Amman message initiative.

Utilizing the huge funding and support from Saudi Arabia and other Salafi GCC Countries, Amman Message is being promoted through the following means:
(i) Inter-Islamic treaties.
(ii) National and international legislation using the Three Points of Amman Message.
(iii) Publicity through advertisements, publications and multi-media, in all their aspects, in spreading Amman Message throughout the world.
(iv) Teaching of Amman Message in school curricula and university courses worldwide.
(v) Making Amman Message part of the training of Mosque Imams and propagating it via sermons in mosques and other Islamic gatherings.
Saudi Salafis have a lot of experience in spreading Salafism in the world using their Petro-Dollar wealth. Now they have embarked upon changing Islam altogether by spreading Amman Message.Aboobacker Musaliyar is regarded as closely associated with Salafi Kings and Emirs. He has received many official awards in Arabian Gulf countries. Details can be read on his official websites.Some references are mentioned below for the benefit of our readers. Details can be read on Aboobacker's official websites.
Saudi Gazette reported that Aboobacker Musaliyar met in April 2013 with Prince Khaled al-Faisal, Governor of Makka, in Jeddah Saudi Arabia.
During the meeting, Aboobakar Musaliyar thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for their support to Indian Muslims??? (We do not know what support the Kingdom is giving to Indian Muslims). Aboobacker emphasized the need for further cementing the relations??? Aboobacker extended an invitation to Prince Salman to visit India (SSF) which was accepted by the Prince.
Aboobacker visited King Faisal Foundation and met with Prince Khaled bin Saud al-Faisal, Foreign Relations Manager, Center for Research and Islamic Propagation. Prince Faisal bin Saud of Darul Faisal Cultural Center was also present during the meeting.
During the discussions, Aboobacker commended the services of the Custodian of two Holy Mosques King Abdullah to humanity world wide. He gratefully acknowledged the contributions done by King Faisal Foundation in the domain of Islamic education (read Salafi education) in the world. Aboobacker invited both the princes to visit SSF in India and they accepted his invitation.
In January 2013, Aboobakar conducted “Shaikh Zayed International Peace Conference" in Kerala and a high level delegation from UAE was invited.
The second Shaikh Zayed Peace Conference was held by Aboobacker in December 2014 in New Delhi, India.
The 37th Markaz Conference was held during December 18-21, 2014 in Calicut, Kerala in which many Ammani scholars were invited.
Arab News reported on October 14, 2014 that Aboobacker Musaliyar called on the Muslims of the world to support King Abdullah and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in their call against terrorism.
The paper reported that Aboobacker has extended his full support to the call of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah.Aboobacker also urged world leaders, Islamic scholars and community members all over the world to unanimously back King Abdullah’s strong commitment in uprooting divisive plots. Read more ...
Followers of Aboobacker consider him as Mujaddid-e-Islam. They also call him with titles like 'Sultan-ul-Ulema', 'Qamar-ul-Ulema', etc. Read more ....
Aboobacker's praise of Saudi Royal family and asking people, scholars and leaders to support Saudis in their terror network must have been a horror shock to his Backeri followers as everyone knows that it is Saudi Arabia who are training Salafi Terrorists and destroying Muslim countries. Every single Backeri (the follower of Aboobacker) knows ISIS is funded and trained by Saudi money. Everyone knows how Saudis have destroyed Jannat ul Baqi and Jannat ul Muallah and the pious graves of over 60,000 Sahabah and family members of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). Saudis have converted Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) house into a Public Toilet in Makka. They have been attempting to destroy the Green Dome of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).
THERE IS A FAMOUS SAYING - IF YOU FIND A SCHOLAR ON THE DOOR OF A KING, DO NOT BELIEVE HIM.
The picture shows the Statement of Aboobacker Musaliyar on January 25, 2015, appeared in Arab News, on the death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. He said "May Allah reward the King with His Paradise for his great services to the Ummah. We beseech Allah to strengthen the royal family so that they can achieve greater achievements".
Aboobacker Musaliyar has openly supported the call to make laws to impose Ammanism on all Muslims of the world. We hope Backeri followers will realize the seriousness of the issue of Sulah-e-Kulli and safeguard their Iman. Sahih Iman is the primary requirement for our Salvation in Hereafter. If you die as an Ammani, there is no hope that you will get salvation.It is in Quran - وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا (And whoever opposes the Apostle of Allah - صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم after the path of guidance has become clear to him, and follows the path other than that of the (true) believers, We shall keep him in the same (state of disorientation) he has (himself) turned to, and shall (eventually) cast him into Hell and that is an evil dwelling. (An-Nisa - 115)Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) cautioned us about the time we are living in when misguided sects will spread like insects on Earth and lead people away from Sahih Iman and Sahih Islam. The Ahadith also specify that a person will be Muslim in the morning and he will become non-Muslim in the evening as he will sell his Iman for worldly gains.
(i) It is in Hadith - The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said "(In the end times) A man would be a Muslim in the morning and unbeliever in the evening or a believer in the evening and unbeliever in the morning and would sell his faith for worldly gains. (Muslim, Book of faith, # 118, Tirmidhi # 2195, Ahmed Vol 2, p 390).
(ii) It is in Hadith - Reported by Hadhrat Abu Naim (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) in his book titled 'Huliya'. Hazrat Abu Umana Bahili (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) narrates that Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) said ‘Before Qiyamah, they ( the misguided sects and their sub groups) will spread and attack bitterly like the small and large insects and whosoever witnesses this period must seek refuge in Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) (Huliya).
The above Hadith clearly states that, among the misguided groups like Salafis, Ammanis and their like minded, some will be very large and some will be small and they will attack the Iman (Aqeedah) of Muslims from all over the world. It is very difficult to sustain their poisonous bites (Da'wa). We seek Allah's (سبحانہ و تعا لی) refuge from their misleading Da'wa.
(iii) It is in Hadith - Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ): Allah's Apostle ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) said, "A time will come that the best property of a Muslim will be sheep which he will take on the top of mountains and the places of rainfall (valleys) so as to flee with his religion (Islamic Faith) from afflictions." (Bukhari - Book #2, Hadith #18)
The above Hadith indeed signifies our time when it is extremely difficult for Muslims to protect their Sahih Iman from the Da'wa campaigns of misguided Salafis, Ammanis and their like minded groups.
(iv) It is in Hadhith - Narated Hudaifa bin al-Yaman (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ): The people used to ask Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) about good, but I used to ask him about evil for fear that it might overtake me. Once I said, "O Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)! We were in ignorance and in evil and Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) has bestowed upon us the present good; will there be any evil after this good?" He said, "Yes." I asked, "Will there be good after that evil?" He said, "Yes, but it would be tainted (polluted) with Dakhan (some evil)." I asked "What will its Dakhan be?" He said, "There will be some people who will lead (people) according to principles other than my tradition. You will see their actions and disapprove of them." I said, "Will there be any evil after that good?" He said "Yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of Hell, and whoever accepts their invitation to it, will be thrown in it (by them)." I said, "O Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)! Describe those people to us." He said, "They will belong to us and speak our language." I asked, "What do you order me to do if such a thing should take place in my life?" He said, "Adhere to the group of Muslims and their Chief." I asked, "If there is neither a group (of Muslims) nor a Chief. (what shall I do)?" He said, "Keep away from all those different sects, even if you had to bite (eat) the root of a tree, till you meet Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) while you are still in that state." (Bukhari Book # 56, Hadith # 803 and Muslim Book # 20, Hadith # 4553).
The above Hadith clearly specifies that the people who will misguide Muslims will be from among Muslims only who would sell their Iman for worldly gains. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) emphasized us to keep away from all these misguided sects/groups (Ammanis, Salafis, Shia, etc.) even if we had to bite (eat) the root of a tree (meaning, whatever hardship we face in view of suppression and intimidation by these people) till we meet Allah (meaning till we die).
Ammanis claim that they are trying to achieve peace in the world by propagating Ammanism. This is pure deception aimed at fooling unsuspecting Muslims. By creating a Universal religion, Ammanis are attempting to control 56 Muslim countries of the world under a puppet Khalifa.Followers of Ammanism should know that we can live in harmony and peaceful coexistence with people of all sects/faiths. There is no harm in it. But for this purpose, we don't have to mix religions to make a cocktail religion. Ammanism is a political ploy of Salafists and Zionists to eliminate Islam from the world. It is an open war against Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and Aboobacker Musaliyar has joined hands with the enemies of Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).
We have nothing against the person of Aboobacker Musaliyar. We wish him good luck, health and long life. We have nothing against his Backeri followers as well.
Also, we have nothing against the Royal family of Jordan or the Royal family of Saudi Arabia. We wish them many more years rule over their respective countries to serve their people. What we object is their attempts to destroy Islam and Sahih Iman.
We have tried to bring facts in front of people in this article so that they see the truth, correct themselves and remain on the straight path of Islam. We regret if this Article caused any unintentional inconvenience to anyone in the world. If people accept these facts, it is fine with us. If they reject them, it is also fine with us.
The Life after Death is very very long. We pray Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) to put us all on the right path of Islam so that we achieve salvation in Hereafter.
