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.

3– In some Holy Wars,

3– In some Holy Wars, at times of shortage of water, Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’ put his blessed hand into a container, water poured down from between his fingers, and the container continuously overflowed with water. The number of people who consumed that water was sometimes eighty, sometimes three hundred, sometimes fifteen hundred, and sometimes, e.g. in the Holy War of Tabuk, seventy thousand, the number of their animals excluded. The pouring of water stopped when he took his blessed hand out of the container. 4– One day he visited his paternal uncle Abbâs in his home. He asked his uncle and his uncle’s children to sit beside him. Then he covered them with ihrâm [1] and invoked, “Yâ Rabbî (O my Allah)! This is my uncle and my father’s brother. And these people are my Ahl-i bayt. Cover them and protect them from Hell-fire, as I cover them with this blanket.” A voice that seemed to be coming from the walls said, “Âmîn,” three times. 5– One day, when some people asked him to show them a miracle, he called to a tree in the distance, asking it to come before him. The tree uprooted itself, moved towards him, with its roots dragging behind, came before him, greeted him, (i.e., said “Assalâmu ’alaikum,”) and said, “Esh-hadu an lâ ilâha il-l-Allah, wa esh-hadu anna Muhammadan ’abduhu wa Rasûluh”, (which means, “I believe in and testify to that Allâhu ta’âlâ exists and He is One. And again, I believe in and testify to that Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’ is His born slave and His Messenger.”) Then it moved back to its place and resumed its stand. 6– During the Holy War of Hayber, when they put poisoned mutton kebâb on the table before him, a voice was heard to say, “Yâ Rasûlallah (O the Messenger of Allah)! Don’t eat me. I am poisoned.” 7– One day he said to a man with an idol in his hand, “Will you become a Believer if the idol speaks to me?” The man defied, “I have been worshipping it for fifty years, and it has never said a word to me. How will it speak to you now?” When Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’ asked, “O thou idol! Who am I?” a voice was heard to say, “You are the Prophet of Allah.” Upon this the owner of the idol joined the Believers. [1] Seamless garment warn by Muslim pilgrims in Mekka.

8– There was a date stump in the Masjîd-i-Nabawî (the Prophet’s Mosque) in Medina. Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ would lean on that stump whenever he made (the speech called) Khutba. The stump was called Hannâna. When a minbar (pulpit in a mosque) was made, he did not go to the stump to lean on it. The entire congregation heard a voice crying from within it. The blessed Messenger dismounted the minbar and gave Hannâna a hug. It was no longer crying now. The Best of Mankind ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ explained, “Had I not hugged it, separation from me would make it cry till the doom of the world.” Many other similar miracles were seen and reported. 9– Another frequently seen event was that gravels or pieces of food in his hand would say tasbîh of Allâhu ta’âlâ like the droning of bees. (That is, they would say, “Subhânallah,” which means, “I know Allâhu ta’âlâ far from all sorts of imperfection.”) 10– One day an unbeliever came to him and said, “How do I know that you are a Prophet?” Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ asked, “Will you believe in me if I beckon to that cluster of dates on that palm and they (obey me and) come to me?” The unbeliever replied he would. When the Messenger of Allah beckoned the cluster of dates came, jumping. When the Messenger of Allah ordered, “Go back to your place,” the entire cluster went up to its place, hanging there as before. Upon seeing this, the unbeliever became a Believer. 11– In Mekka a pack of wolves attacked a flock of sheep and dragged away one of the sheep. When the shepherd charged at them and grappled the sheep back, one of the wolves began to talk, remonstrating, “Aren’t you afraid of Allâhu ta’âlâ, that you deprive us of our food, which Allâhu ta’âlâ has sent to us?” Astounded, the shepherd mumbled, “Oh, a wolf talks!” The wolf went on, “Shall I tell you something which is even more surprising? Muhammad ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’, the Prophet of Allâhu ta’âlâ, is displaying miracles in Medina.” The shepherd went to Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’, related what had happened, and became a Muslim. 12– Muhammad ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ was strolling through a field, when he heard a voice saying, “Yâ Rasûlallah (O the Messenger of Allah)!” three times. He turned to the direction whence the voice came, to see a deer tied up. By – 161 –
