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.

used to describe a person who is your junior, in rank or age, and who is attached to you with deep affection. The ninth verse of the fifth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew reads as follows: “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” The word ‘children’ used in this text means ‘the beloved born slaves of Allâhu ta’âlâ’. Accordingly, the words ‘Father’ and ‘son’ in the original Injîl (Bible) were used to mean ‘A Blessed Existence’ and ‘the beloved born slave’, respectively. In other words, the intention in using these terms has no proximity to a tripartite godhead. The final conclusion to be drawn from the various contexts wherein the words ‘Father’ and ‘Son’ are used is that Allâhu ta’âlâ, who is the Ruler and the Owner of all, sent His beloved born slave Îsâ ‘alaihis-salâm’ as His Messenger to humanity. Most Christians must have come to their senses in the long last, for they say, “We are all born slaves, children of Allâhu ta’âlâ. Allâhu ta’âlâ is the Lord, the Father of us all. The Biblical words ‘Father’ and ‘Son’ must be construed as such.” Many words were mistranslated from the Hebrew original of the Bible. This fact can be exemplified as follows: 1) One of the ‘L’s of the word ALLAH, the name of Jenâb-i- Haqq, is missing in the Hebrew original of Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament. As a result of the recurring changes that the Bible was subjected to, the word ‘ALLAH’ was excised. Christians must have been afraid of being close to Muslims’ Allah. 2) The Hebrew original of the Old Testament does not contain the word ‘virgin’. Concerning the birth of Îsâ (Jesus) ‘alaihis-salâm’, it is stated as follows in the fourteenth âyat of the seventh chapter of Isaiah of the Hebrew original: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a girl shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Im-man’u-el.” In that text the word ‘ALMAH’, which means ‘girl’ in Hebrew, is used. The Hebrew equivalent of the word ‘virgin’ is ‘BETHULAH’. The word ‘virgin’ should have sounded better to Christians, so that the Christendom was imbued with the idea of ‘Blessed Virgin’. The bigoted British priests went even further in this respect and committed the miserable guilt of defiling the Biblical verses. An example is the sixteenth verse of the third chapter of John, – 96 –

which was changed from, “For God so loved the world, that he gave [sent there] his only son, [that is, the person he loved very much,] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting [endless] life,” to “For God so loveth the world, that he gave his only (begotten) Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Here, they used the English word ‘begotten’, which literally means ‘born’. On the other hand, the fact that Allâhu ta’âlâ is ONE and that Îsâ (Jesus) ‘alaihis-salâm’ was sent as a Prophet is stressed at many places of the Bible. Here are a few examples: “... Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:” (Mark: 12- 29) “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” (Deut: 4-39) “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:” “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” (Deut: 6-4,5) “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no God with me: ...” (Deut: 32-39) “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? Saith the Holy One.” “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, ...” (Is: 40-25, 26) “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” “I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” “... saith the LORD, that I am God.” (Is: 43-10, 11, 12) “Thus saith the LORD...; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.” (Is: 44-6) “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: ...” (Is: 45-5) “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.” (Is: 45-18) “... have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; – 97 –
