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.

the gas called nitrous

the gas called nitrous monoxide, which, in its turn, makes another compound with oxygen, i.e. the orange coloured nitrous dioxide. In the meantime, again with the effect of thunderbolts and lightnings, the moisture and the nitrogen in air combine to make ammonia. Owing to the moisture in air, the nitrous dioxide changes into nitric acid, which in its turn combines with the ammonia and the carbonic acid in air, hence ammonium nitrate and ammonium carbonate. The salts formed in this way fall on to the earth with rain. Once these salts reach the earth they combine with the calcium salts to make the compound termed calcium nitrate. This salt is absorbed by plants and makes them grow. These substances change into various proteins, [e.g. albumens,] in the human beings and animals that eat these plants, and feed the people who consume the meat, the milk, and the eggs of those animals.” Then, people’s food, as is stated in the Qur’ân al-kerîm, comes from heaven. The information given above is at the same time an answer to those who slander the Qur’ân al-kerîm by saying that “the things stated in it do not agree with scientific knowledge.” The Islamic scholars ‘rahima humullâhu ta’âlâ’, the experts of the knowledge of tafsîr (explanation of the Qur’ân al-kerîm), explained the âyati-kerîmas within the scientific knowledge of their time. What we want to do now is to prove that not only is the Qur’ân al-kerîm in conformity with the scientific knowledge of every age, but the newest explorations will find their references in it. Each âyat-ikerîma has an infinite number of meanings. As all the attributes of Allâhu ta’âlâ are boundless, so His attribute Kelâm (word, speech) has no limits. It is only the Owner of the Qur’ân al-kerîm, i.e. Allâhu ta’âlâ, who knows all those meanings. And He has intimated most of them to His Prophet ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’. And this blessed Prophet of His ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’, in his turn, informed his Sahâba (Companions) ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în’ about the ones that he considered suitable for them. We assume that the information we have given above could be a few drops from that ocean of meanings. Now, if we ask these scientists, “Do you think a person who had not learned how to read and write could conceive these facts fourteen hundred years ago?” they will say, “It is impossible. Obtaining these facts today have cost humanity centuries spent reading innumerable books and doing countless experiments. – 142 –

And doing all those experimentations requires reading for years, establishing huge laboratories, and preparing and using delicate instruments.” Then, is it something conceivable that a person who had not learned anything and who had grown up in a vulgarly ignorant society should have discovered and propounded such tremendous scientific facts on his own? Of course, not. Then, it is impossible to accept the allegation that the Qur’ân al-kerîm was written by Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’. A book that announced to us fourteen hundred years ago today’s facts which have been obtained after long, painstaking endeavours can only be the BOOK of ALLÂHU TA’ÂLÂ. Human beings cannot have such stupendous power. ALLÂHU TA’ÂLÂ, alone, possesses such power. Anyone who reads the aforesaid facts with attention will believe this. One should be extremely bigoted, stubborn, and ignorant to deny it. As Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’ publicized the chapters of the Qur’ân al-kerîm, he conveyed only the statements that Allâhu ta’âlâ had been revealing to him, and as others learned them, so did he. Now let us touch upon the second sign demonstrating the fact that the Qur’ân al-kerîm is really a greatest miracle: the arrangement of its contents. When the Qur’ân al-kerîm is examined with computers, which are the latest instruments of today’s high-level technology, it will be seen that it has been established on an inconceivably terrific mathematical basis. The result is perplexingly significant. This result is only a miracle of Allâhu ta’âlâ. Before penetrating deeper into the inner essence of the experiment done, let us study how the Qur’ân al-kerîm was revealed, and what Allâhu ta’âlâ stated to His Messenger ‘sall- Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ during the revelation. For this has to do with the arrangement of the Qur’ân al-kerîm. The Qur’ân alkerîm was not revealed in the same order as today’s arrangement. The earliest revelation was the ’ALAQ Sûra. First, five âyats of ’Alaq Sûra were revealed to Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’. They purport, “O Muhammad! Read! In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Allah, Who created everything.” “Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood [’alaq]:” “Read, and thy Lord (Allah) is Most bountiful,” “He Who teacheth (with the use of) the Pen,” “Teacheth man that which he knoweth not.” (96-1, 2, 3, 4, 5) – 143 –
