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.

was six months later

was six months later when Fâtima ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhâ’ passed away, and no other relative of the Prophet had passed away yet. 34– He said to Qays bin Shemmâs ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’, “You will lead a beautiful life and then die as a martyr.” Qays attained martyrdom in the battle fought against Musaylama-t-ul Kazzâb in Yamâma during the caliphate of Abû Bakr ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’. He also foretold of the martyrdoms of ’Umar-ul-Fârûq, ’Uthmân, and ’Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în’. 35– He gave the good news that the lands belonging to the Persian emperor Chosroes and the Byzantine Kaiser would be conquered by the Muslims and their treasuries would be spent and dispensed for the sake of Allah. 36– He prophesied that a considerable number of his Ummat would go out for a Holy War on the sea and that Umm-u-Hirâm ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhâ’, one of the Sahâba, would be in that Holy War. During the caliphate of ’Uthmân ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’, the Muslims sailed to Cyprus and made a war there. The blessed woman mentioned above was with them. She attained martyrdom there. 37– One day the Rasûl ‘alaihis-salâm’ was sitting on a raised place. He turned to the people with him and said, “Do you see what I see? I swear (in the name of Allah) that I see the fitna (mischief, insurrection, malice) that will take place amongst your houses and in the streets.” During the days when ’Uthmân ‘radiy- Allâhu ’anh’ was martyred, and also in the time of Yezîd, great commotions erupted in Medina, many people were slain and blood flowed along the streets. 38– One day he foretold of an event wherein one of his wives would revolt against the Khalîfa. When Âisha ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhâ’, (his beloved wife,) was amused at his words, he said, “Yâ Humeyrâ [1] Do not forget this word of mine! Mightn’ t you as well be that woman!” Then he turned to Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ and said, “If you should have the authority to decide about her, behave tenderly towards her!” It was thirty years later when Âisha ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhâ’ made a war against Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu [1] A word of endearment which our blessed Prophet called his blessed wife, Hadrat Âisha, the (spiritual) mother of all Muslims. – 168 –

’anh’, (who was the Khalîfa at that time,) suffered a defeat and was held captive. Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ showed her kindness and deference and sent her from Basra to Medina. 39– He said to Mu’âwiya ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ [d. 60 (680 C.E.), Damascus], “If you should dominate over my Ummat one day, reward those people who do goodness, and forgive the malefactors!” Mu’âwiya ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ was the governor of Damascus for twenty years during the caliphate of ’Uthmân ‘radiy- Allâhu ’anh’, and later he occupied the office of caliphate for twenty years. 40– One day he said, “Mu’âwiya will never suffer a defeat.” When Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’ heard about this hadîth-isherîf during the battle of Siffîn he said, “I would never have fought against Mu’âwiya ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ had I heard about it before.” 41– He said to Ammar bin Yâser ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’, “You will be killed by rebellious people, by bâghîs.” Indeed, Ammar attained martyrdom as Alî ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ and he was fighting against Mu’âwiya ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’. 42– He said about Hasan, his daughter Fâtima’s son ‘radiy- Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhumâ’, “This son of mine is a source of khayr (goodness). Owing to him, Allâhu ta’âlâ will make peace between two great armies of Muslims.” Years later, he was about to enter into a war against Mu’âwiya ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’, when he decided to give up and renounced his right of caliphate to Mu’âwiya ‘radiy- Allâhu ’anh’ in order to prevent fitna and consequent bloodshed of Muslims. 43– Abdullah bin Zubeyr ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhumâ’ saw Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ being cupped, and drank the blood coming out. When the blessed Messenger noticed this he stated, “Do you know the things that you will suffer from people? And they will suffer much from you. The fire of Hell will not burn you.” When Abdullah bin Zubeyr declared himself the Khalîfa in Mekka years later, Abd-ul-melik bin Merwan sent a huge army under the command of Hajjâj from Damascus. Abdullah was caught and killed. 44– One day he looked at Abdullah ibni Abbâs’s mother ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în’ and said, “You are going to – 169 –
