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.

2 Kings: Author:

2 Kings: Author: anonymous. 1 Chronicles: Perhaps it was written by a Jewish rabbi and theologian named AZRÂ (Ezra) three hundred and fifty years before Îsâ ‘alaihis-salâm’. 2 Chronicles: This book, too, may have been written by Azrâ. It is written in Munjid, (an encyclopaedic Arabic dictionary made up of two parts,) that Azrâ means Uzeyr. Yet the author of these books is not Uzeyr ‘alaihis-salâm’ (a prophet), but a Jew named Azrâ. Ezra: This book was named after its author, Ezra (Azrâ). Esther: Author: anonymous. Job: Author: anonymous. Psalms: It means the chapters of Zebûr, (the Holy Book revealed to Dâwûd (David) ‘alaihis-salâm’. Although it is said to consist of the chapters revealed to Dâwûd ‘alaihis-salâm’, it also contains psalms of the sons of Korah, Asaph, Ethan the Ezrahite, and Solomon (Suleymân ‘alaihis-salâm’). Jonah: Author: unknown. Habakkuk: A book written by a person whose identity, origin, genealogy or profession is not known at all. So we have given you brief information about the origins of the books of the Old Testament. As for the New Testament; since we have already given information about its authors and the discrepancies in it, we do not think any further details would be necessary. The Holy Bible contains many other absurd statements. For instance, the repentance which Allâhu ta’âlâ feels for the Flood (Gen: 8-21), Yâ’qûb’s (Jacob) ‘alaihis-salâm’ dream in which he wrestles with Allâhu ta’âlâ and wins (Gen: 32-24 to 27), Lût’s (Lot) ‘alaihis-salâm’ committing fornication with his daughters (Gen: 19- 31 to 36); how foul these lies are should have been realized by Christians also, so that they are gradually taking these passages out of the Holy Bible. Now let us examine the Holy Bible from a textual point of view to see what it is endeavouring to imbue into mankind: The passage we shall quote is from Genesis, which tells about the early human beings, the early prophets, the great prophets – 110 –

such as Âdam, Nûh, and Ibrâhîm ‘alaihimussalawâtu wattaslîmât’. Also, it tells about the earliest Hebrew families and how they were established. It is written as follows in the initial verses of the thirtyeighth chapter, which is about Judah, the forefather of Jews: “And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain A-dul’lam-ite, whose name was Hi’rah.” “And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shu’ah; and he took her, and went in unto her.” “And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.” (Gen: 38-1, 2, 3) Now, please put your hand on your heart, and answer the following questions: What does a religious book teach? A religious book teaches people what they should do and what they should not do. It gives them ideas about this world and the next. It rebukes them for bad behaviour and praises them for good behaviour. It teaches them their duties towards Allâhu ta’âlâ and the behaviour they should observe with one another. It formulates a lifelong policy that should be pursued for a peaceful and happy worldly life. In short, a religious book is a BOOK of MORALS. Which one of these virtues exists in the passage that you have just read? It is an obscene story of fornication. Anywhere in the world, this passage would be banned on account of its pornographic implications. This book, which Christians and Jews hold sacred, contains quite a number of other similar immoral passages. For instance, as we have cited earlier, it is written in the thirtieth and later verses of the nineteenth chapter of Genesis of the Old Testament that Lût’s (Lot) ‘alaihis-salâm’ own two daughters made him drunk with wine and committed sexual intercourse with him and had sons. Likewise, it is written in the eleventh chapter of II Samuel of the Old Testament that Dâwud (David) ‘alaihis-salâm’ watched Bath’-she-ba, the wife of U-ri’ah, one of his commanders, in the nude as she was taking a bath, succumbed to her attraction, went into a sexual relation with her, and sent her husband to “the forefront of the hottest battle,” lest he should come back. (II Sam: 11-2 to 17) In today’s European museums there are paintings illustrating David’s watching Bathsheba in the nude and dispatching Uriah to death. In European languages, ‘Uriah’s letter’ means ‘death sentence’ or ‘bad news’, and thus Europeans derive stories of this sort from their books which they call ‘Holy’. What do these books teach – 111 –
