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.


and help them.” If there was a funeral, he would help with the washing and shrouding of the corpse, conduct the (special prayer performed before the burial of a Muslim and which is called the) namâz of janâza, and walk with the procession to the grave. When there was not a funeral to be attented, he would state, “If you have a dream to be interpreted, I will. Let me listen to it and interpret it!” 11– When he did not see one of his Sahâba for three days running, he would inquire after him. If the Sahabî concerned had gone on a journey, he would invoke a blessing on him. If the Sahabî was said to be in town, he would pay him a visit. 12– When he met a Muslim on his way, he would anticipate him in the salutation. 13– He would ride a camel, a horse, a mule, or an ass, and sometimes he would have someone else sit behind him on the animal. 14– He would serve his guests and his Sahâba, and would say, “The master and the noblest member of a community is the one who serves them.” 15– He was never seen in a burst of laughter. He would only make silent smiles. And when he smiled his blessed front teeth would be seen. 16– He would always look pensive and sad, and he would talk little. He would begin to talk with a smile. 17– He would never say anything unnecessary or useless. He would talk briefly, effectively, clearly, and when it was necessary. Sometimes he would repeat the same statement three times so that it should be understood well. 18– He would play jokes on strangers and acquaintances, on children and old women, and on his blessed wives. Yet these jokes would never cause him to forget about Allâhu ta’âlâ. 19– He had such an awe-inspiring appearance that no one dared to look at him on the face. A visitor who looked at his blessed face would sweat. Thereupon he would say, “Do not feel worried! I am not a king, and I am not cruel at all. I am the son of a woman who ate dried meat.” These words would expel the man’s fears and he would say what he wished to. 20– He did not have guards or doormen. Any visitor would – 198 –

easily go in and talk with him. 21– He had a powerful sense of modesty. In fact, he was too bashful to look at a person on the face. 22– He would not fling a person’s fault in his teeth. He would not complain about anyone or talk behind a person’s back. When he did not like someone’s behaviour or words, he would say, “I wonder why some people do so?” 23– Although he was the darling, the most beloved one and the chosen Messenger of Allâhu ta’âlâ, he used to say, “Among you I am the one who knows Allâhu ta’âlâ best and fears Him most.” Another statement he used to make is: “If you saw what I see, you would laugh little and cry much.” When he saw clouds in the sky he used to say, “Yâ Rabbî! Do not send us torment through these clouds!” Whenever a wind blew, he would pray, “Yâ Rabbî! Send us useful winds.” When he heard a thunder, he would invoke, “Yâ Rabbî! Do not kill us with Thy Wrath, and do not perish us with Thy Torment, and before this, bless us with good health.” Whenever he performed namâz, sounds of sighing would be heard from his chest as if there were someone sobbing within. The same sounds would be heard when he recited the Qur’ân al-kerîm. 24– His heart had an astonishing degree of fortitude and valour. During the Holy War of Hunayn, the Muslims dispersed for the purpose of collecting the booties and only three or four people remained with him. The unbelievers launched a sudden and collective offensive. The Messenger of Allah stood against them and defeated them. The same incident took place several times. He never receded. 25– In the second chapter of the third part of Mawâhib-iladunniyya Abdullah ibni ’Umar is quoted to have said that he had not seen anyone stronger than the Fakhr-i-kâinât (the Master of universe). According to a narration conveyed by Ibni Is-haq, there was a famous wrestler named Rughâna in Mekka. He met the Messenger of Allah somewhere outside of town. The Messenger asked him, “O Rughâna! Why don’t you convert to Islam?” “Can you produce a witness to testify to your prophethood,” was the latter’s question. Upon this the blessed Prophet defied, “Let us have a wrestling-match. Will you become a Believer if your back touches the ground?” “Yes, I will,” was the reply. The match had hardly begun when Rughâna’s back – 199 –
