القرآن له ظاهر و باطن
The Qur’an has an external and internal.
This is absolutely baseless. It has no existence in the books of hadith. Instead, it is from the speech of the heretics.
Many people say regarding something that Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala has declared haram, “This is haram externally, but halal internally.”
This is one of the strongest proofs for the falsehood of the Batiniyyah heretics’ creed of the Shia, and the mandatory nature of taking the external Qur’anic texts.
Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala has made His Qur’an a hujjah against His creation. He pronounces:
وَإِنْ أَحَدٌ مِّنَ الْمُشْرِكِيْنَ اسْتَجَارَكَ فَأَجِرْهُ حَتّىٰ يَسْمَعَ كَلَامَ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ أَبْلِغْهُ مَأْمَنَهُ
And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah. Then deliver him to his place of safety.
