Islam and Christianity

ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY This book is written in the nature of a “key” for those Muslim brothers of ours who have just a smattering of knowledge on how the Islamic religion has developed, and it has been written for those non-Muslims willing to know the fundamentals of Islam. Islam, the most up-to-date and the most immaculate of the world’s existing religions, is based upon very humane and very logical principles. Without going into details, this book touches upon the fundamentals of Islam and makes a comparison of Islam with other religions. It answers criticisms raised against Islam by its adversaries and explains as compendiously as possible the qualifications essential for being a good Muslim. For those who would like to read valuable books on Islam written by Islamic scholars (rahimahumullâhu ta’âlâ) after learning the facts contained in this book, we advise that they read books published in different languages by the Hakîkat Kitabevi (Bookstore) in Istanbul. The names of these books are appended to our books. Read this book slowly and with reflection! Encourage others to read it, too! An ignorant person cannot be a good Muslim. Indeed, it is impossible for a person not to attach all his heart to Islam after learning its fundamentals. After reading this book, you will also realize what a lofty, sacred, logical, and perfect religion Islam is, and you will attach all your heart and soul to it in order to attain salvation and repose in this world and in the hereafter. Islam that abrogated celestial religions of Judaism and Christianity along with their validity is explained first. That Qur’an-ı Karîm is word of Allah; miracles of Muhammad ׳alayhissalâm, his virtues, moral practices and habits; how to be a true Muslim; a comparison of Islam and Christianity; that Muslims are scientifically powerful; are explained next.

SOME of the ERRORS in

SOME of the ERRORS in the HOLY BIBLE (the Torah and the Gospels) Exposing the Holy Bible to a routine process of revisions, and thereby publishing and selling new editions of the Bible, has become a really prolific source of trade. Each and every European family keeps a copy of the Holy Bible [the Old and New Testaments] in their home, no matter whether the family members believe in it or not. As a matter of fact, most European villagers read no other book than the Holy Bible, which is the only book they know. The cultural level of the European people is not as high as we think it is. Those who live in villages know how to read and write, but they are quite unaware of what is going on in the world. They read only the Holy Bible. Consequently, every new (revised) edition of the Holy Bible is printed in millions of copies and earns its publishers millions of pounds yearly. Then, no other job can yield more profit than does the regular job of revising and publishing the Holy Bible yearly. In the meantime, the Western periodicals provide a stimulus to the activity with repeated warnings: “There are errors in the Holy Bible.” They contain serious articles written by well-known scientists and theologians which you would read with consternation. An example of them follows: Now you will say, “How can the Word of Allâhu ta’âlâ be mistranslated? How can the Word of Allâhu ta’âlâ be corrected by human beings? How can the Book of Allâhu ta’âlâ be subjected to a revision? A book that has undergone so many alterations and corrections can never be the Word of Allâhu ta’âlâ.” In fact, if you read the following comments in the introduction to the Anglican Bible revised a second time in 1971, your consternation will reach a zenith. The clerical commission who did the last revision make the following remarks: “... Stylistically, the version of the Holy Bible prepared under the command of King James is extremely perfect. It can be accepted as the highest work of art in the English literature. We regret to say, however, that the book contains such serious errors as should be definitely corrected.” Only think! An ecclesiastical group make a commission, find a number of SERIOUS errors in a book that has been believed to – 100 –

e the ‘Word of Allah’ from 1020 [1611 C.E.] to 1391 [1971] in England, and decide that these errors must definitely be put to right! Who on earth would believe that that book is the ‘Word of Allah’? The following is a humorous anecdote told by a person who has held debates with Christian theologians and scientists on the Christian tenets and the Bible and who has proved that they were interpolated. That person relates as follows: “An article that appeared on the September 8 th , 1957 issue of the American periodical AWAKE read as follows: So there are as many as fifty thousand errors in the Holy Bible! Recently, a young man bought a copy of the King James Version of the Holy Bible. He never expected that there would be mistakes in the Holy Bible which he thought was the Word of Allah. A short time later he saw an article with the heading ‘Facts About the Bible’ in the periodical Look, which he had happened to buy. The article said that a clerical commission appointed in 1133 [1720 C.E.] found twenty thousand errors in the Bible that was prepared under the command of King James. He was both surprised and extremely sad. When he talked with his spiritual companions about this matter, they said, to his great amazement, that the existing Bible contained “fifty thousand errors, not twenty thousand.” He almost swooned. Now he asks us: For God’s sake, tell me. Is the Holy Bible which we look on as the Word of God really a book full of mistakes? “I read the magazine with attention and kept it. Six months ago, one day I was sitting at home, when the door-bell rang. I opened the door and saw a polite young man standing before me. Smiling respectfully, he gave me a cordial greeting, and showed me his I.D. card. It said ‘Jehovah’s Witness’ on his I.D. This appellation was used by a missionary organization. In a dulcet tone, the young missionary said, ‘First of all, we are trying to invite you, and the other educated people who have deviated from the right path, to Christianity, which is the right path. I have brought you books containing some lovely passages from the Torah and the Bible. Let me present them to you. Read them, think over them, and make a decision.’ I invited him in and offered him some coffee. He seemed sure that he had convinced me, at least halfway. After coffee, I asked him, ‘My dear friend, you look on the Torah and the Bible as the Word of Allah, don’t you?’ ‘Definitely,’ was the answer. ‘Then, there are no errors in the Torah and the Bible, are there?’ ‘Impossible,’ he said. Then I – 101 –
