Can a Muslim be a Freemason?

Hi. I'm 18 years of age and I want to be a Freemason, but I'm a Muslim and I heard rumors that a Muslim can't be a Freemason. I would be grateful if you would tell me whether these rumors are true or false.
Thanks

Salam Alaikum Brother,
I myself am a Freemason and a Muslim. As long as you believe in God and you are a man of good moral stature, you are an eligible petitioner to Freemasonry.
I hope this helps answer you question.

No other thing deserves more trust than these two. Almighty Allah says: "O ye who believe, obey Allah and the Messenger when He calleth you to that which quickeneth you, and know that Allah cometh in between the man and his own heart, and that He it is unto Whom ye will be gathered." (Al-Anfal: 24)

Freemasonry is a secret organization whose beliefs and practices are totally kept confidential except from those who are initiated into it. They have levels of secrets which are not divulged to those who are at lower levels. A Muslim should never fall prey or give allegiance to something which cannot be scrutinized by the firm criteria of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Whoever joins Freemasonry is like a person who writes a blank check; by doing so he agrees to give allegiance blindly to an authority to comply with their wishes no matter what they are.

No Muslim can surrender his will unconditionally to anyone but Allah. If anyone has done so, he is guilty of the most blatant violation namely shirk (associating partners with Allah). Allah says: “Do they have partners beside Allah who shall prescribe for them rituals that Allah has not sanctioned.” (Ash-Shura: 21)"

Knowledge and Ignorance
by: John

I commend your apparently extensive knowledge and understanding the Qur'an, but please recognize that knowledge of the Muslim religion does not grant insight into a fraternal organization that you know nothing about.
A Freemason does not give blind allegiance to any man or institution. In fact, it is the exact opposite. Freemasonry teaches that a man is to think for himself, find and follow his own destiny, and reject tyranny in all forms.
Freemasonry is not a religion, nor does its teachings conflict with any religion. It teaches universal brotherhood among all men of all religious faiths. It is upon this platform of universal brotherhood that Freemasonry unites men of every country, sect and opinion.

Being a Muslim Mason
by: Tim

Whether you can become a Freemason depends more on the government of the country in which you live than your chosen religion. Good men of all faiths are welcome to petition for membership in the fraternity, but the governing powers in some countries do not allow Freemasonry to exist as an organization.

Freemasonry teaches freedom, equality and truth. If these teachings are not a constitutional part of the government in your country then organized Freemasonry may not exist there. However, this does not mean that the teachings are any less valid or important.

You do not need to be a member of the fraternity to practice Freemasonry. Find other like-minded men; study some of the many books written about Freemasonry by Freemasons; discuss your findings and your beliefs and look within yourself for truth.

If you do live in a country where Freemasonry is active visit our Joining Freemasons page for an explanation of the process of joining.

Best of luck and thank you for your question.

is it possible to quit
by: Anonymous

If I was accepted to be mason, could I change my mind or quit later without any punishment from Mason.

Jan 12, 2012
Yes, you can quit the Masons
by: Tim

Yes, it is possible to demit from membership in the Masonic fraternity whenever you wish. However, when you become a Freemason you make certain promises and take certain obligations, and as an honorable man you would be expected to keep your promises.

Would there be punishment for not keeping your promises? Not from the Masons. Many men have broken their promises and violated their obligations without consequence from the fraternity. The punishment would come with the knowledge that you are not worthy of the trust and confidence placed in you when making those promises.

Thanks for your question. Fraternally,

Tim

Yes you can
by: Mike357

You can become a mason and I invite you to do so. I had the priviledge of fellowshipping with a brother of the Muslim faith and we had some very enlightening conversations. After some serious thought and study, we came away with the realization that the two actually are very similiar and both contained answers that were asked by the other.

Lost Property of the Believer
by: AsadSayfu-Llah

Allow me to share with you, wisdom of the Messenger of Allah. The Holy Prophet (s) said that knowledge is the lost property of Believer. Wherever he may find it, it is his, because no one deserves it more than he.

"Wherever you find knowledge, take it, even if it is in the hands of the ploytheist."- Ali ibn abi talib (ra)

The reason that Muslims are misguided to disrespect Freemasonry, is because their minds are saturated with Christian propaganda. They don't realise that the anti-Mason Christians hate Islam even more than they hate Freemasonry. In fact, they blame Islam for establishing Freemasonry via Templars via Ismaelites- The same Christians say our Beloved Prophet Muhammad is Baphomet. Astaghfirullah!

Rewind 500 years. The Cathloic Church slaughtered Muslims, tore down the Moorish Empire, and called Muslims as heathens. They considered you to be a satan worshiper if you said the world is round.

The same cathloic church also accused the Templars of worshiping Baphomet. They executed the Templars based on the same kind of lies they told about the Muslims.

Allah says in Quran, surah 49, that we must investigate when news is brought to us from an evil man. The christians who lie against Muslims cannot be trusted, so Muslims need to stop believing everything that the anti-Muslim Christians say.

Allah says investigate, so Muslims are OBLIGATED to investigate. Those who obey Allah's command, investigate by joining the Fraternity to learn the Truth vs slander.

Those who disobey Allah and follow their aniti-mason, anti-muslim, Christian enemies- assist the Christians in spreading slander without proof. This is ignorance and a shameful practice.

Muslims who are Freemasons should organise to combat this foolishness. We have knowledge because we seek knowlegde with justice, not prejudice.

Muslims who disobey Allah in this matter should be admonished.

Allah is Nuru samaawati wal ard- LIGHT of the heveans and earth.

About Solomon's Temple
by: AsadSayfu-Llah

The Quran ayah which mentions Solomon clears his name of any wrongdoing. If you take the time to read the ayah, you'll see it is talking about Black magic, not Freemasonry. You cannot condemn anyone if they study about Solomon. And think about how you contradict yourselves:

1. A masjid was built under Umar's command, on the ruins of Solomon's Temple. It's called Temple Mount and Muslims consider it Holy. That's why its called Quds. So you contradict yourselves by blaming Freemasons in connection with Solomon's Temple when you yourselves consider it a Holy place. Three fingers pointing back at you. ...

2. The Templars were students of Muslims who controlled Temple Mount. That's where they got their knowledge, not from satans. The Muslims did not teach Black magic to the Templars. So please go back and read the ayah with presence of mind, and do not jump to conclusions just because satan put a suggestion in your head via anti-Muslim/Mason Christian propaganda. You cannot give da'wah by wearing ignorance on your shoulder

I am back with evidence
by: muslim girl

1st:
Is Freemasonry a religion?
No, Freemasonry is not a religion. Masons who treat it as such are mistaken. Freemasonry strongly encourages its members to belong to an established religion, although that is not a requirement for membership (only that a candidate profess a belief in a Supreme Being). Masonry is a fraternal organization that encourages morality and charity and studies philosophy. It has no clergy, no sacraments, and does not promise salvation to its members.

2nd
But what about terms like "Temple," "Worshipful," and so on?
Labor unions meet in a Labor Temple. A museum may be called the Temple of Fine Arts. This does not mean that they are religious institutions. The same is true of Freemasonry. (Masonic buildings are also called Lodge Halls and Masonic Centers as well as Masonic Temples. Some Scottish Rite buildings are called "Cathedrals," but that is from a Greek word meaning "chair," and referring to the seat of authority of any sort.)

The term "worshipful" stems from 18th century English usage, when Freemasonry in its present form was being organized. The term has nothing to do with religious worship but is an old synonym for "honorable" or "respected." Check any good dictionary!

Similarly, Freemasons engage in group prayer and have a chaplain, just as do the armed services and the houses of Congress. That does not make Masonry into a religion

3rd:
Is there a conflict between Freemasonry and established religion?
There is nothing in Freemasonry that conflicts with most religions. However, Freemasonry does insist on religious tolerance. To the extent that certain religious groups would wish to suppress other religions or persecute their followers, Freemasons would be in opposition to such activities, and adherents of such groups would be both uncomfortable and unwelcome in Masonry. It is also the case that certain religious groups are misinformed about Freemasonry and believe things about the Fraternity that are not true; basing their opinions on this false information, they then formulate opinions that create conflict.

4th:
Why do certain fundamentalist groups oppose Freemasonry?
Mostly out of ignorance and misinformation, although possibly out of fear of competition for time and attention with the church (churches have been suffering the same loss of active membership over the past few decades as has Freemasonry). Ignorance of Masonry allows misinformation to spread. For example, it is claimed that Freemasonry has a "plan of salvation" that is in opposition to that of the Christian Church. Simply not true; nothing in any of the Masonic degrees refers to salvatio

you can also visit a site that i will asure you not to be a freemason because why leave your religon to go to no relgion!!

i want more knowlege and truth

My question is? the levels of knowledge between masons who are politicians, musicians, and atheletes! Are their levels of freemasonry that are evil? Does it differ from the masons who are fraturnal. I am muslim and i seek knowlege where ever i may find it. but not if its knowlege that satan uses to illude me from the truth

The truth of Freemasonry is....
by: Tim

Freemasonry is simply a system of moral teachings designed to enable a good man to make of himself a better man through study and introspection. It is not a religion. It has no evil in it. It has no more power than the golden rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

The Masonic fraternity is an organization made up of men and women who desire to contribute to the betterment of the world, and realize that their contribution can be enhanced by combining efforts with many others. They work together in groups large and small to raise funds for worthy charitable organizations, to do charitable acts for those in need, and to support each other emotionally and spiritually in their daily lives.

Freemasonry and the Masonic fraternity combine to create a belief system and means by which to live a life of honor and purpose. Those who sensationalize it are either misinformed or are pursuing their own agenda toward profit or attention. As in most cases, the truth is much less exciting than the fiction.

propaganda
by: MyOwnThinker

guess you answered your own question,,
PROPOGANDA : Information, of a biased or misleading nature
my opinion is that people need to stop restricting their mind and do some proper research before they slander,,
educate yourself and not from rappers and youtube.
i used to be anti mason but that was only because i was listening to what people were telling me and just watching propoganda.
but now that i have started thinking for myself all i can say is i do not have enough knowledge to clearly stste what is what, inshallah i would like to gain knowledge. but until i clearly know enough, i wouldd hate to slander when i dont have the knowledge.

Masonic secrets are....
by: Tim

The teachings of Freemasonry are not secret. They never have been. They are universal teachings for living a peaceful life of honor and service. Freemasonry simply uses the tools of operative masonry as symbols to serve as lifelong reminders of these lessons.

However, membership in the Masonic fraternity is restricted to those men who have been properly vouched for, satisfactorily investigated, and favorably balloted on by members of a regular lodge. Once made a member, we take upon ourselves certain obligations. These obligations are honorable promises of mutual assistance and support, dedications of service to mankind, and promises to keep certain secrets. They are decidedly not of a nature from which any good man would dissent. These obligations and the shared experience of initiation create the brotherhood that is the Freemasons.

The secrets are our modes of recognition and esoteric knowledge, by which we may come to know a man to be a brother. The Masonic fraternity is a worldwide organization and our secrets enable us to recognize each other without need of a formal introduction.

We do not receive a Quran, nor any other Holy book as part of being a Mason. Freemasonry is not a religion. Nor is it a substitute for religion. Every member is encouraged to practice his own chosen religion. Freemasonry only requires that a man believe in God. How he chooses to relate to and worship God is a personal matter.

A Shriner is a member of the Shriners International organization, an appendant body of Freemasonry. The Shrine is a philanthropic organization which supports several hospitals for children specializing in orthapaedics, burn care, cleft lip and palate, and spinal cord injury. You can learn more about the Shrine at www.ShrinersHQ.org

There is no sacrifice, blood or otherwise, in Freemasonry. We invest our time and money is service to others and becoming better men. Anyone willing to make such a sacrifice for personal gain, or for any other reason, has no place in the Masonic fraternity.

I hope this helps answer your questions and clear up some confusion. Thanks for your contribution to Masonsmart.com

Fraternally,

Tim

Sorcery , murder , interest in business , gambling , hoarding , alcohol..
by: Ibrahim Tamanrasetti

May our brother humans say that they believe in Supreme being , that word " Supreme Being " refers clearly to making yourself superior over other humans while you take them other humans including Muslims as some sort of stray animals say sheep or rabbits.
My brother Muslims dont add anybody amongst you or yourselves in Masonry because you will lose the help of Allah , he wants you to think of him , love him , care his command , read his words , fast for showing loyalty , pray 5 or more times , what else is important for you more that his great Paradise? Where four seasons dont exist , where sun never burns , where birds talk to you..
My brothers now lets get real , Masons were partly Christians but then they parted it for protection of Jerusalem. They do sorcery , that Haram . They dont actually trust in any God.
Follow up , discover their behaviour , they drink alcohol , take interests over loans , they put monopoly on businesses by killing rivals. They have zero tolerance , on wealth equality , religion , social harmony and their faces show that they are demons.

FYI: None of this regarding Masons or Masonry is true, and Ibrahim knows not of what he speaks.

Muslim and Mason
by: rrl

as salam aleicum, let me add my personal take. I'm a Muslim and a Mason of Lodge in France, Member of a Master Lodge and yes it took me a while to get my head clear and Allah help me it was not easy. However may I say that while there is Rituals there is no Religion, no one ever argued about or against my believe in Allah. It is however difficult. It is not only the misconceptions and misinformation which is out there, you can get confused when you do not have a guiding hand and do not have a strong knowledge of Allah. Many fall from the path and it is dangerous for those who are easily swayed, for those strong enough the rewards are high and you will find many who will help you.
Allah keep you safe!

I am a nobody.
by: Nil

Peace be upon you,

I heard that for somebody to enter this fraternity, he must pass certain requirements. Can somebody with extremely low level of social status, wealth, knowledge or even has imperfect health be able to join this type of organisation?

Furthermore, this person even agnostic or an atheist with only the "niat" an great interest to find knowledge, which he hope could help him in the search for truth? Give a case that this person is an ex-Muslim and has always been a Muslim before.

Is this kind of person would able to join such fraternity?

Allah will loose you
by: rrl

Malik el Allah, Allah will not loose you, loosing Allah is a personal decision and if you are secure in your knowledge of allah nothing will sway you from the path. I understand where freemasons came from and yes there is no need for them as there is no need for a lot of things when it comes down to the basics but Allah did put you in a family, a society and a now and learning is a big tenant of the Muslim faith. Some learning is more difficult than other and you add more knowledge at a price but never will Allah loose you when you stick to your faith. The base is to know Allah the Merciful!

On the question of membership and agnostic, may Allah be Merciful to him and let him find the path.

Membership is usually by invitation only, you have 2 sponsors and you go through a period of learning and progress from stage to stage. While good moral standing is a requirement, Masons are generally not richer than non-masons. I have not found many agnostics or atheists in the freemasons,the way to full membership is often challenging, especially for a muslim who has to find a way to understand "form".

Religious proselythism is frowned upon, at least I have not found any within my lodge.

I would not send a searching soul to the Masons and not someone who is set in his ways.

Walk your Path in Allah and be open to learn, listen to Allah when Shaitan crosses your way and you will be able to prevail. Temptation will cross your path at all times in all shapes and it is your task not to fail in the face of temptation. Theorie will not help you in this Case, only you walking yourself with Allah in your life will allow to maintain the good conduct in the face of Quran.

So like I said before a Freemason Lodge is not for the Muslim who is still searching or is not stabil in his faith. Freemasonry is not a religion, there is no rule against Islam.

Deception

do not limit Allah
by: rrl

Ali Al Abdullah,

don't you think that restricting Allah is a little bit outside of the scope of humanity? Being a Freemason will not make you worshipping 2 masters, they are neither a religion nor do they ask you to turn away from Allah, in contrary faith is valued highly and putting out a helping hand to humanity is not frowned upon in the Quran. Faith and worship are valued but outside the scope of freemasonry, they are your personal responsibility. Religion and politics are subjects which it is well known are stringently forbidden to be introduced into Masonry.

Muslim v Freemasons
by: Fred

Good evening

This is a extremely interesting topic for me as a person. I feel there is always a need to discuss with others ideas apart from religion. Such as one goes to a club / business links to meet and discuss various areas of life, business etc...

But my confusion is and I hope the Freemason contributors can help me to understand if the Freemasons are in a sense a "club"? Or are there religious aspects which collide with ones faith I.e Islam

I don't want to cause a outcry from fellow Muslims but I think I am allowed to ask questions and I hope I can get a answer from the Freemason community.

Regards

Freemasonry is not a Religion
by: ni seag

Basic Principles. Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It requires of its members a belief in God as part of the obligation of every responsible adult, but advocates no sectarian faith or practice. Masonic ceremonies include prayers, both traditional and extempore, to reaffirm each individual's dependence on God and to seek divine guidance. Freemasonry is open to men of any faith, but religion may not be discussed at Masonic meetings.

The Supreme Being. Masons believe that there is one God and that people employ many different ways to seek, and to express what they know of God. Masonry primarily uses the appellation, "Grand Architect of the Universe," and other non-sectarian titles, to address the Deity. In this way, persons of different faiths may join together in prayer, concentrating on God, rather than differences among themselves. Masonry believes in religious freedom and that the relationship between the individual and God is personal, private, and sacred.

Volume of the Sacred Law. An open volume of the Sacred Law, "the rule and guide of life," is an essential part of every Masonic meeting. The Volume of the Sacred Law in the Judeo/Christian tradition is the Bible; to Freemasons of other faiths, it is the book held holy by them.

The Oath of Freemasonry. The obligations taken by Freemasons are sworn on the Volume of the Sacred Law. They are undertakings to follow the principles of Freemasonry and to keep confidential a Freemason's means of recognition. The much discussed "penalties," judicial remnants from an earlier era, are symbolic, not literal. They refer only to the pain any honest man should feel at the thought of violating his word.

Freemasonry Compared with Religion. Freemasonry lacks the basic elements of religion: (a) It has no dogma or theology, no wish or means to enforce religious orthodoxy. (b) It offers no sacraments. (c) It does not claim to lead to salvation by works, by secret knowledge, or by any other means. The secrets of Freemasonry are concerned with modes of recognition, not with the means of salvation.

Freemasonry Supports Religion. Freemasonry is far from indifferent toward religion. Without interfering in religious practice, it expects each member to follow his own faith and to place his Duty to God above all other duties. Its moral teachings are acceptable to all religions.

The worst thing U could ever do, sell your soul to the devil. I thank the Al-Mighty Allah for saving me from selling my soul to the devil. Satan plays so many tricks with you. I was an ignorant Muslim when I joined, but something kept showing me this is wrong. If it wasn't for me meeting this Muslim man from Cyprus. I would have sold my soul and would have been among the cursed ones. Masonary is all about worshiping the Satan. And masonsry is all about deception. Just the same way Adam and Eve where tricked into eating an apple from the forbidden Tree. And a Muslim can NEVER BE A MASON AND MUSLIM.as a Muslim U live to build ur afterlife not ur worldly life. Either be a good Muslim, good heart, good intention, pray five times. N remember ur Creator. Not no supreme being. We know our creator thru the beloved Muhammad S.A.W. The best of examples. Just ask urself if the prophet was stood here n U said U wanted to become a mason?? U wudnt wud U so there's ur answer. Bad times are coming. I cannot beleive people would actually fall for this. We live in such a brainwashed society. We go to forums on the net for to get our questions answered. It could be anyone behind the screen. N lastly. Tim who are U trying to kid. Go on YouTube and type masons confessing, ex masons. So they're all lying now. Everyone wake up before ots to late. The Satan mankinds enemy..

I'm a Muslim and a Freemasons.
by: Muhamad Yaakub

Assalammualaikum my Muslim Brothers.

As a Muslim, I am obligated to answer some of your answers regarding Freemasonry. I could assure you in the name of Allah S.W.T, there is nothing wrong with freemasonry. It is compatible with Islam in anyway. Freemasonry could not only help me to know myself, but also to do good deeds, promote truth and happiness within the boundaries of Islam.

At first, I was hesitated to join this Fraternity as some of you did encouraged me before that Freemasonry is worshipping the devil. Those rumor's are not true. Freemasonry is not a religion, but to become one, you need to have your own religion, and mine, Islam.

In Islam, we were thought that Fitna is a greater sin than Murder, so, as a Muslim Brother, I advice you to carefully measure your words, especially within topic that you've known nothing about.

From Freemasonry to Islam
by: Najim

Dear Brothers,

Thanks to Freemasonry, I discovered Islam, Mashallah.
I am now a proud Muslim and my faith helps me understand better Freemasonry since I converted.

Freemasonry is not a religion but a great complement to religion. It acts as a lever for religion.

Freemasonry is absolutely not secret! We believe in one God and do charity and are very open. Just go to your nearby Masonic Lodge and ask for a visit. It will dissipate the veil of ignorance.

I love my Brother Masons and my Brother Muslims.

Salam

Dont do it if you are a true muslim. Contradiction.
by: Anonymous

Masons worship the sun. The sun is the eastern star. When the world was in darkness God said let there be light. Masons always talk about enlightenment. The angel who tryed to overthrow God was the most beautiful angel which was Gods right hand man. That angel was Lucipher. The wordif looked up in the dictionary means light bearer or enlughtened one. Lucipher provided light to the world when God said let there be light. This was the same serpent who talked eve into eating from the tree of knowledge. This is the same serpent used as a symbol in medical fields as acknowledgement of that field. The sun rises to the east . Lucipher is the sun. Most masons we know are not on the level high enough to even know the truth of the organization. They talk brotherhood and fellowship but they are just pawns who dont know the real mission of freemasonry. Masory has been infiltrated by illuminist who have another agenda. One world rule.

For my Muslim brother ASAK
by: Anonymous

ASAK Wow my Muslim brother your comment was very interesting . I am practicing Muslim and a 32 degree master mason. I can assure you that the information that you just stated is very off based. So if all mason are evil and worship the devil. That mean a great many of Muslim leader such as Yasser Arafat for example who was a 33rd master mason. Is a devil worshiper??? This man spent his life fighting for the rights of people until the day Allah (swa) sent the two angels to bring him back to his creator . So brother I'm as high as you can go as Mason. There is only one degree left that I can earn. There is no devil worship going on in Freemason. :-) Ramandan Kareem

Albert Pike the most famous Mason
by: Anonymous

This is part am excerpt from a letter that Albert Pike wrote. "That which we must say to the crowd is - we worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition. To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General (of the 33rd degree), we say this, that you may repeat it to the brethren of the 32nd , 31st and 30th degrees - The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.

If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay, the God of the Christians, whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests calumniate him? Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive." To say that Masons are not of the luciferian doctrine and that they do not worship Lucifer, is misleading and frankly a lie. If you believe this then it is because you are a low level mason. My Muslim brothers, do not fall for the lies of shaytan.

The "Luciferian Doctrine" hoax
by: Tim

Dear Anonymous regarding Albert Pike,

The supposed excerpt that you provide above is a part of what is called the "Luciferian Doctrine." This episode which purported that Lucifer was the God of
Masonry was a hoax created by Léo Taxil (Gabriel Antoine Jogand-Pagès) in
the late 1800's. While he publically confessed to the hoax in 1897 people
did, and still do, belive it and repeat it without going to the trouble to
verify it. Over the past 100+ years many authors have fallen prey to the temptation to publish this proven hoax as truth without doing a whif of research to verify it. Welcome to the club.

If you are interested in the truth here is a Web link for the story of the hoax including sources:

Is It True What They Say About Freemasonry?

And, here is a link to a full reproduction of Taxil's confession to the
hoax:

Leo Taxil's confession to the Luciferian Doctrine hoax against Freemasonry.

Of course, if your interests lie only in slandering Freemasonry with false accusations without regard for truth then nothing I, or anyone else, may say will change that.

Thank you for visiting Masonsmart,

Tim

Sin?
by: ni seag

See that somone believes that Muslim Freemasons are commiting shirk. In Islam, shirk (Arabic: شرك‎ širk) refers to the sin of practicing idolatry or polytheism, i.e. the deification or worship of anyone or anything other than the singular God. Literally, it means the establishment of "partners" placed beside God.

Freemasons do not do that. The deepen the social understanding and responsibility but they neither tamper with the 5 pillars of islam nor do the set up idols or see themselves or anyone else as partner of Allah.

If they say that freemasonry its all about brotherhood and charity then where is the need to allied with them when Islam has already and even more... there is no point at all worship God and do what he says to do there in no need at ALL to join other kind of groups regardless of what they teach....

whats the problem
by: Anonymous

what is the problem, all we say is that you can be a muslim and a freemason, we never said you have to be, there are many groups which are charitable and looking out for the betterment of humanity. You can be a solitary muslim and you can be a social muslim or in between, but engaging society is part of islam and so complimentary membership is allowed as long as you are not going against the pillars of islam.

Muslim masons in North America
by: 32 ldegree mason

.i as a mason would welcome any one of any faith into my lodge.
The problem I see with Muslims being masons is fairly involved. First Muslims hate and dispise democracy. This in itself is enough to eliminate you from the free world masonic lodges, as we promise to never go against our country or government.
The basic tenets of Islam are all anti democracy and free world. Why would a Muslim even want to join a fraternity that is opposite his beliefs.
Seems to me a little strange

Oct 14, 2013
Can't see it happening
by: Anonymous

The freemasons accept everyone from any faith into their lodges. The Muslim would be able to join.
I see an issue here though , Muslims hate democracy as described in the Koran . It goes against one of their most sacred beliefs. My question is why would a practicing muslim do this. It is very hypicritical to be praying for one thing and then taking vows not to go against your government. Which in North America is a democracy.
So that in itself seems strange That a Muslim to promise to Allah one thing then turn around and promise the opposite to god.
Seems maybe this young man has other motives, or is just very confused

All seems like roses
by: Anonymous

My problem is the ambiguity of professing love for Allah and the quoran
And taking vows to protect country and govt with the masons.
When the quoran clearly states it's hatred for democracy. This is entry level question time.
What's it gonna be, one or the other. It cannot be both

Confusion
by: Tim

Dear Anonymous "32 ldegree mason,"

First, America is not a democracy. We are a republic.

Second, please direct us to the portion of the Quran that describes Islam's hatred of democracy.

Third, the obligations of Blue Lodge Freemasonry say nothing about not going against the government. The history of our war for independence, the framing of our constitution, and the formation of our constitutional government all included dedicated patriots, freedom-fighters, and Freemasons. Being a Freemason does not bind one to blindly obey the government. In fact, quite the opposite. In the additional bodies of the Scottish Rite we are taught to battle tyranny wherever we find it, even in our own house.

Fourth, why do you refer to God and Allah as two separate entities? Do you believe in more than one supreme being? There is only one. We may call Him by different names; we may worship Him in different manners; we may relate to Him in different ways, but there is only one.

I can not help but wonder who it is that is confused.

thats right
by: Niseag

Tim is right, in all my time in Grand Oriente and our associated Master Lodge I have not seen a non-compatibility with my faith and I am a Moslem and Sufi (my Sheik belonged to the Naqshibandi in Peshawar and yes I did run it by him). Shukri Abed wrote a nice article summoning the discussion paramenters of Democracy and Islam, there are other papers, I myself believe that Democracy and Faith have to come together, just the plain old Democracy will not serve Humanity and in that there are a lot of Freemasons who share that sentiment.

Bad deeds under freemansoniry
by: Darko

Great topic.

I am a born ortodox christian and lived in place of earth where Islam was presented as a very bad thing (considering history of wars that took place in past) until one night I had a vision and read Kuran in my dream. Then i looked for it and since then I realized the truth.

Since I have been witness of all bad things that happened to people in my former country where unseen forces used most sacred values of Religion (regardless of domination it was just a matter of which one was more prominent in population) I can not help my self noticing that people who took place in all those bad deeds where actually Masons accepted in lodge.

That gave me doubts about Freemasons in general. I understand that I should not make general opinions but...

Anyway who ever gave answers here to our brothers muslims who had little knowledge but lot of fears did a good thing. Rare to find online.

Regards

I don't see any harm.
by: Anonymous

Salamalakum fellow brother & sisters,

I met a mason Muslim person. Strong faith, daily prayers, goes to Friday Jumah, what is honestly wrong? He's more Muslim than I am mashallah and an excellent role model. I'm 25 and interested in the mason organization solely only because the benefits of title & helping the fellow man or woman. They don't condone haram, interfere with your belief practice, or discuss politics.

I should also strongly mention they only accept applicants whom believe only single faith (mono theism religion). They don't allow the discussion of religions or politics within the organization for a reason. Simply put, it's to better one's self, not walking a dark path away from SWT Allah. I've been researching them for almost 5 years all I see is conspiracy theorists making them look bad.

Muslim Mason
by: Anonymous

If a Muslim joins a group such as the Freemasons, doesn't it go against the Islamic concept of Al Wala' Wal Bara'?

Apr 11, 2014
Al Wala Wal Bara
by: Ni Seag

Al Wala' Wal Bara' means, on one hand, drawing near to what is pleasing to Allah and His Messenger and, on the other hand, withdrawing from what is displeasing to Allah and His Messenger. A very good book on thaat matter can be found at http://www.kalamullah.com/Books/alWalaawalBaraa1.pdf

And no, Freemasonry is not against the Faith because the Masons will not dispute your faith, nor hinder its expression in word, action or prayer, but will support it.

Thank you for the extremely informative link on the topic. I suggest every Muslim, whether part of the FreeMasons or not, should read it.
