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.


Maktûbât: “Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam) said: ‘Allâhu ta’âlâ is Rafîq (The Exalter). He likes mildness. He gives to mild people what he Has not given to the harsh ones or to anyone else.’ This tradition (hadith ash-sherîf) is written in the tradition book Sahîh by Imâm-i Muslim. Again in Muslim, [the Prophet] said to Hadrat Âisha (rad- Allâhu ’anhâ) his blessed wife: ‘Behave mildly. Refrain from severity and from something repulsive! Mildness adorns a person and takes ugliness away.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [in the book Muslim] declares: ‘He who doesn’t act mildly has not done any good.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [in the book Bukhârî] declares: ‘Whom I like best among you is the one with the most beautiful temperament.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [conveyed by Imam-i Ahmad and Tirmuzî (rahima-humullâhu ta’âlâ)] [1] declares: ‘A person who is given mildness is given goodness in this and in the next world.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Imam-› Ahmad, Tirmuzî, Hâkim and Bukhârî (rahima-humullâhu ta’âlâ)] declares: ‘Hayâ (bashfulness) comes from îmân. A person with îmân is in Paradise. Fuhsh (an indecent act) is evil. Evildoers are in Hell.” A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Imam-i Ahmad and Tirmuzî] declares: ‘I’m describing the person for whom it is harâm (forbidden) to enter Hell and who is harâm for Hell to burn: Pay attention! This person shows easiness and mildness towards people’. A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Ahmad Tirmuzî, and Abû Dâwûd] declares: ‘Those who are mild and who provide ease for others are like a man who holds the halter of his animal. If he wants to stop the animal, it will obey him. If he wants to ride it over rocks, the animal runs towards them.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [quoted in Bukhârî] declares: ‘If a person controls his anger when he gets angry although has the power to do what he likes, on the Resurrection Day Allah will call him from among other people and will say unto him: “Go to Paradise and choose the hourî you like!” ’ [1] Muhammad Tirmuzî passed away in 279 (892 A.D.). – 68 –

As it is communicated in a hadith ash-sherîf [quoted in all hadîth books], when a person asked Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam) to give him some advice he said, ‘Do not get angry or nervous!’ When the man repeated the same question again and again, he gave the same response saying, ‘Do not get angry or nervous.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [quoted in Tirmuzî and Abû Dâwûd] declares: ‘Listen, I’m describing those who will go to Paradise: They are powerless, incapable. When they take an oath to do something, Allâhu ta’âlâ will certainly fulfill their oaths. Listen, I’m describing those who will go to Hell: They are severe. They decide in a hurry (without thinking). They are arrogant.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Tirmuzî and Abû Dâwûd (rahima-humullâhu ta’âlâ)] declares: ‘If a person gets angry when standing, he should sit down. If he cannot get over it by sitting, he should lie down!’ A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Tabarânî, Bayhakî and ‹bni Asâkir (rahima-humullâhu ta’âlâ) declares: ‘As aloe decomposes honey, fury defiles îmân as well.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Bayhakî and Abû Nuaym] [1] declares: ‘Allah promotes a person who humbles himself for Allâhu ta’âlâ’s sake. He deems himself inferior, but he is superior in the eyes of others. If a person holds himself superior to others, Allâhu ta’âlâ demotes him, and he becomes inferior in everyone’s view. He is great only in his own view. In fact, he looks lower than dogs and swine.’ A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Bayhakî (rahimahullâhu ta’âlâ)] declares: ‘When Mûsâ (’alaihi ’s-salâm) asked, “O my Allah! Who is the most valuable of Your human slaves?” Allâhu ta’âlâ declared, “He who forgives when he has enough power (to punish).” ’ A hadith ash-sherîf [communicated by Abû Ya’lâ] declares: ‘If a person controls his speech, Allâhu ta’âlâ will cover his shortcomings. If he controls his wrath, Allâhu ta’âlâ will withdraw His torment from him on the Resurrection Day. If a person invokes Allâhu ta’âlâ, He will accept his invocation.” As it is written in Tirmuzî, Muâwiya (radiy-Allâhu ’anh) wrote a letter to Hadrat Um-mul-mu’minîn Âisha (radiy-Allâhu ’anhâ) and asked her to write some advice for him. She wrote an [1] Ahmad Abû Nu’aym passed away in 430 (1039 A.D.). – 69 –
