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.


The RELIGION of BRAHMANISM Brahma means holy word. Madhhar-i Jân-i Jânân [1] , an- Islamic scholar of India, states in his fourteenth letter, “This religion was invented in India centuries before Îsâ (Jesus) ‘alaihissalâm’. It was a true heavenly religion. Its followers became kâfir (disbelievers) after they corrupted it.” Brahman is the name of those who are the leaders of the people who believe in this religion. One of the Brahmans was deified. Brahma is said to have four sons. One of them is believed to have come into existence from his mouth and the other three from his hands and feet. Because of his four sons, people are divided into four classes by the Brahmans: 1) Brahmans: These are the holy monks of Brahmanism. Reading and explaining the holy book called Veda and guiding the other members of Brahmanism are their tasks. They have the most influence. Nobody can revolt against their orders. Everybody fears them. 2) The Combatants: This class includes rulers, rajahs, great statesmen and soldiers. These are called “Krishna.” 3) Merchants and farmers. These are called “Vayansa.” 4) Peasants, workers, employees, and so on. Anyone outside these four classes is called “Pariah.” A pariah has no right to live a decent life. They are treated like animals. There are idols in Brahmanism. These idols and their meanings, what is eatable and uneatable, crimes and the punishments for them are all written in their holy book, Manava Dharina Shastra, [which means: the religious book of Manu]. The Brahmans are polytheistic. The greatest God is “Krishna,” who is believed to be incarnate to eradicate evils. The second greatest God is “Vishnu.” “Vishnu” is very important. It means “the thing that can penetrate the human body. Their third God is “Siva.” Vishnu is seen as a figure with four hands and its colour is deep blue. It is seen either on its own eagle called “Garuta” or on a flower of lotus or on a snake. According to Brahmanism, Vishnu descended into this world nine times in different shapes, [such as human, faunal and floral shapes]. He is also expected to descend for a tenth time. [1] Madhhar-i Jân-i Jânân was martyred in Delhi in 1195 (1781 A.D.). – 258 –

In the religion of Brahma, killing creatures is permissible only in warlike situations. During other times, living creatures, human or animal, cannot be killed. Human beings are deemed to be sacred creatures. They believe in “transmigration” of the soul. That is, after a human being dies, his soul will return to this world in another shape. Since it is believed that Vishnu could come to this world in the shape of an animal, killing any animal is absolutely prohibited. This is why the zealots among them never eat meat. According to the book Manava Dharina Shastra human life is divided into four groups: 1- Inactivity; 2- Married life. 3- Living alone; 4- Begging. Mazhar-i Jânân (rahmatullahi ’alaih), one of the great Islamic scholars of tasawwuf (sufism) in India, wrote “the ceremonies of Indian disbelievers” in his fourteenth letter in the Persian language. He says: “Allâhu ta’âlâ showed all human beings, including people living in India, the way to happiness. He sent a book with the names of Veda and Bîd by an angel called Berniha. That book had four parts. The mujtahids (great scholars) of that religion derived six madhhabs from it. They called the section concerning belief ‘Dahran Shaister.’ They divided human beings into four classes. They called the section concerning worships ‘Karm Shaister.’ They divided the lifetime of a man into four periods. Each period was called ‘juk.’ All of them believed in the oneness of Allâhu ta’âlâ, the transitoriness of this world, and the Day of Judgement, whereon human beings will be interrogated and punished. They can perform miracles, revelations or divinations by fighting against their own nafs (evil desires within man). The innovations made in this religion by succeeding generations caused them to become disbelievers. When Islam appeared, their religion became invalid. The ones among them who did not become Muslim are classified as disbelievers. We cannot comment on the ones who were dead before Islam.” “Zoroastrianism” is one of the branches of Brahmanism. They idolize fire, cows and crocodiles. They are the followers of a false religion established by someone who was called Zardusht – 259 –
