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.

evolted, Adrian

evolted, Adrian destroyed the city of Jerusalem and massacred the Jewish people. Those Jews who managed to escape from the massacre went to different places, but were oppressed and treated harshly by Christian natives. When the religion of Islam arose, they attained peace and comfort. The city of Jerusalem was restored by Roman emperors and given the name “Ilia” (Ilya). Jerusalem was rebuilt by Abdulmalik, the fifth khalîfa of the Umayyades. The city was destroyed again by Christians during the Crusades. Saladin (Salahaddîn-i Ayyûbî) restored it. The Ottoman khalîfas repaired and ornamanted the city.” Another Judaic holy book after the Torah was the Talmûd. Mûsâ (Moses [’alaihi’s-salâm]) taught what he heard from Allahu ta’âlâ on Mount Tur to Harûn, Yushâ and al-Ya’âzâr. Those words were communicated to the succeeding Prophets, finally they were taught to the holy Yahûda. During the second century of the Christian era, those words were written into a book by this holy Yahûda over a forty year period. This book was named Mishna. Two annotations were written for the Mishna during the third and sixth centuries of the Christian era, in Jerusalem and in Babylon, respectively. These annotations were given the name Gamârâ. Each one of the two Gamârâ books was put into a single book with the Mishna and given the name “Talmûd.” The Talmûd containing the Gamârâ written in Jerusalem and the Mishna is called The Talmûd of Jerusalem. The other Talmûd contaniing the Gamârâ written in Babylon and the Mishna is called The Talmûd of Babylon. Christians are the enemies of these three books. Christians believe that one of the men who preached the teachings of Mishna was Sham’ûn, who carried the cross which was used to crucify Jesus. Some of the precepts in the Talmûd that are harmful for humanity have been written at the end of our Turkish book “Cevâb Veremedi,” which has been translated into English and published with the title “Could Not Answer.” The fact that the above-mentioned name “Al-Ya’âzâr” was the son of Shuayb (’alaihi ’s-salâm) is written in the book Mir’ât-i Kâinât. The so-called “Holy Bible” of Christians consists of two parts: “the Old Testament” and “the New Testament.” Only the Old Testament is believed and considered a Holy Book by Jews. They do not like the idea of this section being called the old Testament. They want it to be called the “Torah.” They say the “Torah” is in three parts. The first part is called “Tawrat.” The Tawrat consists of five parts: – 272 –

1. Genesis 2. Exodus 3. Leviticus 4. Numbers 5. Deuteronomy These five books in totality are called: Pentateuch. In the second verse of Chapter Isra in the Qur’ân al-kerîm, this is declared: “We gave Moses the Book.” But over years many foreign writings have been inserted into the Torahs of today. [1] So, there is no relationship between the original Torah revealed to Moses (’alaihi ’s-salâm) and today’s Torahs. The fact that Allâhu ta’âlâ would send a final prophet named Muhammad (aleyhissalevâtu wattaslimât) was written in the original Torah. When Hadrat Moses went up to Mount Tur for the second time seeking forgiveness for his deviated nation, what Allâhu ta’âlâ told him is written in the 155-157 th verses of Chapter al-A’râf of the Qur’ân al-kerîm: “Mûsâ: O my Lord! If it had been Thy Will Thou couldst have destroyed, long before, both them and me: wouldst Thou destroy us for the deeds of the foolish ones among us? This is no more than Thy trial: by it Thou causest whom Thou wilt to stray, and Thou leadest whom Thou wilt into the right path. Thou art our Protector: So forgive us and give us Thy mercy; for Thou art the Best of those who forgive. And ordain for us that which is good in this life and in the Hereafter: For we have turned unto Thee.” Allâhu ta’âlâ said to him: “With My Punishment I visit whom I will. But My Mercy extendeth to all things. We shall ordain for those that keep from evil, give alms, [2] and believe in Our signs, and to those who follow the Apostle -the Unlettered Prophet- whom they find mentioned in their own Scriptures. That Prophet commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil. He allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the Light — which is sent down with him— It is they who will prosper.” [1] See that section of this book entitled “Qur’ân al-kerîm and Injils” for more information. [2] Its technical word in Islam is “zakât,” which is paid once a year, and it amounts to one-fortieth of one’s property. – 273 –
