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.

2- The main hindrance

2- The main hindrance preventing us from getting rid of all these troubles is our strong desires, which originate from our ignorance, and our wish to live anyhow. 3- To overcome these troubles, it is necessary to extinguish our permanent desires for living as well as our temporary wishes. 4- Man attains beatitude after the elimination of the desire for living. This condition is called “Nirvana.” Nirvana means one who has lost wishes or ambitions. By refraining from worldly pleasures, he attains holy rest. Buddha recommends eight articles for attaining comfort. These are written below: 1- Good faith 2- Good decisions 3- Good word 4- Good action 5- Good life 6- Good work 7- Good contemplation 8- Good mind All the castes (classes) in the religion of Brahmanism are rejected by Buddha. He does not accept the privileges granted to the classes of Brahmanism. They are not given superiority. He embraces (loves) the people called pariah. Human beings are not considered to be holy creatures. On the contrary, he claims that human beings are very deficient but they can get rid of their sins by being satisfied with the least amount, by behaving friendly towards everybody, and by fasting. It is a reality that there are some people among the Buddhists who perform amazing miracles as a result of making their nafs (a force within man prompting him to do evil) bright by fasting for a long time under very heavy conditions. This is why some senses within these people become so prominent that they can carry out some astonishing skills supernaturally. But these skills have no connection with religion or with love of Allâhu ta’âlâ. Their souls are empty. For, Buddhism does not contain belief in (Allah). Burma, an Asian country between Thailand, Bangladesh and Malaysia, has a nescient and immoral population. It was five hundred and forty-three years before the Christian Era when Buddhism arrived in that country. Being utterly devoid of right and mercy, which are indispensable components of a heavenly – 262 –

eligion, it spread quickly among the wild people. Ten centuries later Muslim merchants from India brought Islam with them. Islamic knowledge and Islamic morals also spread. Then came the British, to exploit the natural sources, which they ungratefully paid back with their worldwide policy: Using all sorts of mendacity, weaponry, espionage and missionary trickery and coercion, they disseminated a biased aversion to Islam. When the British left the country after the Second World War, what they left behind was a horde of wild beasts attacking Islam. As we learn from the letters coming from the religious men who managed to escape the cruelties, the Burmese squads were raiding the houses, slaughtering the men, taking away the women and girls, perpetrating all sorts of indecency, butchering their private parts, carved their eyes out, and finally leaving them for dead. We believe that Allâhu ta’âlâ anaesthetizes martyrs against the pain that their wounds and broken bones will cause. Their only desire is to “come back to the world and enjoy once again the delicate flavour tasted during martyrdom.” On the other hand, the Burmese villains who executed the British plans against the Muslims will join their British coaches as they suffer the divine torment in both this world and the next. Confucius, a Chinese philosopher, was seventy years old when he passed away four hundred and seventy-nine years before the Christian Era. He attained fame with the books he wrote on ethics state administration. Afterwards, his philosophy was mutated into a religious sect. His books do not contain any information pertaining to heavenly religions. – 263 –
