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.

sees all, creates

sees all, creates and handles these things as He wills. It is natural to him now that this great Creator can also create mu’jizas and karâmats. As a scientist we say that miracles are a true fact and that Allâhu ta’âlâ, who is their sole Creator, makes His Prophets ‘alaihimussalawâtu wattaslîmât’ perform them. Prophets ‘alaihimussalawâtu wattaslîmât’ cannot perform miracles by themselves or without the permission of Allâhu ta’âlâ. Miracles such as Îsâ’s (Jesus) ‘alaihis-salâm’ curing illnesses and enlivening dead people are miracles created by Allâhu ta’âlâ. This fact is stated in the Qur’ân al-kerîm. On the other hand, Christians, who have been suffering an utter defeat as to the veracity of the Bibles in their hands, are gradually verging on a total denial of all the things stated in these books, which means irreligiousness in the end. How can poor Christians believe in today’s Holy Bibles? As you have clearly seen so far, 1) The Holy Bible contains very few passages that can be accepted as the Word of Allah. 2) That some of the statements in the Holy Bible are not the Word of Allah manifests itself in that the names of the Prophets who made them are written. 3) Many statements were added to the Holy Bible, and it is not known who made those statements. 4) It is admitted by Christian theologians that many fictitious stories and legends were inserted into the episodes about the Apostles. 5) The events narrated by the Apostles about Îsâ ‘alaihissalâm’ differ from one another. 6) Some versions of the Bible which contained true Biblical statements, i.e. the Gospel of Barnabas, have been done away with by Christians. 7) The Holy Bible has been exposed to a number of revisions and interpolations by ecclesiastical councils. These revisions are still going on. According to a narration, there are exactly four thousand different Holy Bibles today. Each council alleges that there are very serious errors in the Bible previous to them. 8) Emperors and kings ordered alterations in the Holy Bible, and their orders were carried out. – 120 –

9) The discourse of the Holy Bible lacks by far the genuineness that should exist in the discourse of the Word of Allah. Some passages of the Old Testament, in especial, as we have exemplified earlier in the text, are too obscene to be read in the presence of children. 10) It is written in European Christian magazines that there are fifty thousand errors in the Holy Bible. Presently Christians are putting forth all their efforts to eliminate the gravest one of these errors, i.e. trinity. 11) It is admitted by Christian theologians that the Holy Bible is not the Word of Allah, but a man-made book. Our beloved readers! All this time you have been with us in our scrutiny of the Bible. As you will grant, we have been entirely impartial in this critical study. The opinions we have conveyed belong not to Islamic scholars, but to CHRISTIAN THEOLOGIANS. From time to time these people excised the contradictory passages from the various different versions of the Holy Bible. Anyone may buy and study one of the Holy Bibles being sold today. We have written the book, the chapter and the verse of each of the passages we have quoted and cited, and we have carried on long, detailed examinations as to their veracity. How could one compare a book of that sort with the majestic, eloquent, rhetorical and miraculous masterpiece, the Qur’ân alkerîm, which has not undergone even an iota of interpolation since the first day its revelation started? All of us should have reached the following conclusion: The Word of Allah should never be changed. A book that contains wrong, erroneous passages, which is changed by people every now and then, and which it is acknowledged even by priests was written by people, can NEVER be the “Word of Allah.” What passages of today’s Holy Bibles contain the advice, the guidance, the differentiation between good and bad, the definitions of this world and the next, consolation, etc., which are indispensable in the Book of Allâhu ta’âlâ? The July 1395 [1975 C.E.] issue of the magazine called Plain Truth contained the following confession: “Let us admit that we are unable to show educated non-Christians a book powerful enough to penetrate into their minds. On the contrary, they point to our Holy Bible and say: You see you have not even come to an – 121 –
