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.

passages eulogizing

passages eulogizing and praising Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’, his four Khalîfas, (i.e. Abû Bakr, ’Umar, ’Uthmân, and ’Alî ‘radiy- Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în’), his Sahâba, and some of his Ummat (Muslims). Allâhu ta’âlâ derived the word ‘Muhammad’ from His own Name ‘Mahmûd’ and gave it as a name to His Habîb (Darling, Beloved one, Most Beloved). Allâhu ta’âlâ blessed His Habîb with His Names ‘Raûf’ and ‘Rahîm’. 10– When he came to the world he was circumcised by angels. 11– When he was about to come to the world, many omens were seen that betokened his advent. They are written in history books as well as in books of mawlid, (i.e. books expatiating on the birth of the Best of Mankind and on the events that took place before the birth, during it, and afterwards.) 12– After he came to the world, devils could no longer ascend to heaven or steal information from angels. 13– When he came to the world, all the idols on the earth and the statues that had been being worshipped fell flat on their faces. 14– Angels would rock his cradle. 15– As he was in his cradle he would talk with the moon, which would move with the movement of his finger. 16– He began to talk in cradle. 17– As a child, wherever he went, a cloud above his blessed head moved with him, continuously protecting him in its shade. This miracle continued until the beginning of his prophethood. 18– Once, when he was three years old, once again, when his prophethood was notified to him when he was forty years old, and once again, when he was fifty-two years old and was being raised to heaven on the night of Mi’râj, angels cleaved his chest, took out his heart, and washed it in a basin that they had brought from Paradise. 19– Each Prophet had his prophetic seal on his right hand. Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm’ had it on the skin of his shoulderblade, on line with his heart. When Jebrâîl ‘alaihis-salâm’ washed his heart and closed his chest, he put the seal that he had brought from Paradise on his back. 20– He saw what was behind him as well as things before him. – 182 –

21– He saw in the dark as well as in the light. 22– He saw the seven stars in the cluster called Pleiades in constellation Taurus [bull], and said their number. This cluster of stars is also called Seven Sisters. 23– His spittle sweetened bitter water, cured diseased people, and fed babies like milk. 24– As his blessed eyes slept, his blessed heart stayed awake. This was the common quality of all Prophets ‘alaihim-us-salawâtu wa-t-taslîmât’. 25– Throughout his lifetime he never yawned. Nor had any other Prophet ‘alaihim-us-salawâtu wa-t-taslîmât’. 26– His sweat had a fragrant smell, like that of a rose. A poor man came to him and told him that he needed help for his daughter’s matrimony. The blessed Messenger had nothing to give him at that moment. So he had some of his sweat put in a small bottle and gave the bottle to the man. Whenever the girl put a bit of the sweat on herself, her house would smell of musk. 27– Although he was medium of stature, he would look taller than tall people standing beside him. 28– When he walked in the sun or in the moonlight his shadow would not fall on the ground. 29– Flies, mosquitos or other insects would not alight on his body or on whatever he was wearing. 30– His underwears would never become dirty however long he wore them. 31– Whenever he walked, angels followed behind. He would have his Sahâbîs ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în’ walk ahead of him, telling them to leave the space behind him unoccupied “for the angels.” 32– When he stepped on a rock, his foot would make a print on the rock. When he walked on sands, on the other hand, he would leave no footprints behind. When he relieved nature in the open, the earth would split apart, swallow the urine or the faeces, and radiate fragrant odours. This was the case with all the other Prophets as well. 33– When he heard that some people had drunk his blood that had been taken out by cupping, he stated, “The Hell-Fire shall – 183 –
