Let's not behave like Kuffaar!

Some of the present-day Muslims and the Kuffaar condemned in the Qur'an have a few features in common:

1. The Kuffaar used to reject the truth arrogantly even though they knew what was being presented to them was true. (Qur'an; 6:20, 27:13-14)
2. They used to hide the truth knowingly lest the view of the other religious group should prevail. (Qur'an; 2:146)
3. They would urge each other not to listen to the other religious views and to shout while the other view was being presented. (Qur'an; 41:26)
4. They claimed they were the only ones who would enter the paradise. (Qur'an; 2:111)
5. People belonging to their one sect used to say about the other one that they had no basis. (Qur'an; 2:113)
6. They claimed that even if someone from among them will go to hell, it will be a temporary punishment and he'll come out of it in a few days. (Qur'an; 2:80)
7. They used to claim that they were God's favourites to the exclusion of all other human beings. (62:6)
8. They used to make fun of other religions. (Qur'an; 5:57-58)
9. They used to make fun of revered personalities of other religions. (Qur'an; 2:104-105)
10. When they were invited to follow the truth that was new for them they used to say that in religion they would follow nothing new. Instead, they would blindly follow their elders. (Qur'an; 2:170)
11. They used to think that their prophet was absolutely superior to all other prophets of God. (Qur'an; 2:253)
12. They used to say that God's prophets must show supernatural miracles. A prophet of God must appear superhuman. (Qur'an; 17:91-93)

Let's not behave like Kuffaar!
