I have noticed a very dangerous pattern in your postings, dear friend.
Are you aware that, by repeating what your founders and leaders have
claimed, you have misquoted and misinterpreted a few verses of the holy
Quran, several times?  Please take special care, when you claim to
attribute things to Allah(SWT) and His Messenger(SAW).

By know, everyone has become aware of the warning of the Messenger of
Allah(SAW) that some of the so called "scholars" among this nation will be
ignorant of the teachings of Islam and will argue based on their own 
unfounded opinion and divide the people.  I hope we all remember that
these pretenders are to be viewed as the worst of the creatures.  Then, we
should all be more careful when we rely on the claims of biased
individuals, without due independent reflection and investigation.

Naturally, those who interpretation the verses of Quran should be at least
familiar with the context of the verse, circumstances and time of its 
revelation, related ayat and ahadeeth, and the opinion of the
companions(Ras).  However, since in my experience, individuals with
ulterior motive will continue to argue about the verses of Allah(SWT) and
increase sin upon themselves, I will only offer the following argument:

  Since the time this ayah was revealed, there have been people who have
  worshipped:  angels, Shaitan, jinns, devils, other people, and even live
  animals.  Are we to similarly believe that all of these were dead, at
  the time they were being worshipped?!!!

For proper context of the ayah, please refer to the holy Quran.
(Holy Quran, An-Nahl, 16.20-25).
