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.

Doing the prayers

Doing the prayers properly, And also earning the worldly, Is what I do daily and nightly. O my Allah, I love Thee! Love is not only words, O Hilmi! [1] Thy Allah commandeth drudgery; Let your manners testify to thee! O my Allah, I love Thee! Islam’s enemies are so many, Attacking the religion insidiously; How could one ever sit idly! O my Allah, I love Thee! A lover simply will not sit lazily, Lest his darling should be hurt slightly. Silence the enemy, and then say honestly: O my Allah, I love Thee! [1] The author of this hymn, Hüseyn Hilmi Iş›k Efendi, addresses himself. – 156 –

MIRACLES of MUHAMMAD ‘alaihis-salâm’ The following passages have been paraphrased from Mir’ât-ikâinât. That book gives also the sources of most of the miracles related, yet we have not written the sources. And we have abridged most of the miracles. There are a considerable number of witnesses testifying to the fact that Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’ is the true Prophet. Allâhu ta’âlâ acclaims him with the following complimentary inspiration: “Had it not been for thee, (O My beloved Messenger,) I would not have created anything!” All beings signify not only the existence and unity of Allâhu ta’âlâ, but also the prophethood and the superior virtues of Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’. All the miracles, (which are called kerâmat,) that happen through the Awliyâ among his Ummat (Muslims) are, in actual fact, his miracles, (which are called mu’jiza, as we have explained earlier). For kerâmats happen through people who follow him and adapt themselves to him. In fact, because all the other Prophets ‘alaihimus-salawâtu wa-t-taslîmât’ yearned to be among his Ummat (Muslims), or, rather, because all of them were created from his nûr (light, halo), their miracles, too, may be said to be Muhammad’s ‘alaihis-salâm’ miracles. Qasîda-i-Burda, by Imâm- Busayrî [d. 695 (1295 C.E.), Egypt], is a pulchritudinous expression of this fact. With respect to time, the miracles of Muhammad ‘alaihissalâm’ fall into three categories: In the first category are those miracles that took place in the period beginning with the creation of his blessed soul and ending with his Bi’that, (which is the time when Allâhu ta’âlâ appointed him His Messenger, which He notified to him through His angel Jebrâîl ‘alaihis-salâm’). The second category consists of those which took place within the time from the Bi’that to his transposition to the Hereafter. Into the third category fall his miracles that have happened since his passing away, as well as those which will take place till the end of the world. Miracles in the first category are called Irhâs, i.e. the beginners. Each category is divided into two classes: Miracles that – 157 –
