Muslims Are Idolators
By Omid Gul - 13 SEPTEMBER 2016
The word "shirk" is used consistently in the Qur'an to mean the act of setting partners with God (idolatry). For example, in 6:114 and 42:21 we read that those who follow religious man-made laws (Talmud, Hadith, etc) as divine guidance are in fact committing idolatry:
(Qur'an 6:114) Shall I seek other than God as a judge when He has sent down to you the Book fully detailed?
(Qur'an 42:21) Or do they have partners who legislate for them religious laws which were not authorized by God? If it were not for a predetermined decision, they would have been judged immediately. Indeed the transgressors shall have a painful punishment.
In 12:106 we read how the majority of those who believe in God (which includes those that adhere to the religion known as Islam) are unknowingly committing idolatry.
(Qur'an 12:106) The majority of them who believe in God do not do so without practicing "shirk" (setting partners with God; idolatry).
In 4:48, God says that the act of idolatry is a "great sin":
(Qur'an 4:48) God does not forgive that partners be set up with Him, and He forgives other than that for whom He pleases. Whoever sets up partners with God has indeed invented a great sin.
