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.

a just God

a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.” “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” (ibid: 21, 22) “... for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,” (Is: 46-9) On the other hand, the Biblical passages stating that Îsâ ‘alaihis-salâm’ is a prophet can be exemplified as follows: “And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?” “And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.” (Matt: 21-10, 11) “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” (John: 5-30) “... A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.” (Matt: 13-57) “... but He that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of Him.” (John: 8-26) “... and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s [1] which sent me.” (John: 14-24) “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.” (John: 17-3) “Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:” (Acts: 2-22) “Unto you first God, having raised up His Son Jesus, [2] sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” (ibid: 3-26) “... and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of Thy holy child [born slave] Jesus.” (ibid: 4-29] These verses clarify the fact that Îsâ ‘alaihis-salâm’ was a prophet who conveyed the revelation of Allâhu ta’âlâ. All these verses are quoted from the Holy Bible owned by today’s Christians, and they show that despite all the [1] The word ‘Fat her’ me ans ‘Al lah the gre atest.’ [2] It go es wit ho ut sa ying that the word ‘Son’ he re me ans ‘Bles sed Born Slave’. – 98 –

interpolations today’s books of the Torah and the Bible still do contain passages surviving from the real Bible. The degree of wrath which some wretched people bring down from Allâhu ta’âlâ by trying to represent Îsâ (Jesus) ‘alaihis-salâm’ as the son of Allah, and by insolently changing the verses in the Torah and the Bible to achieve this end, becomes manifest in the eighty-eighth through ninety-third âyats of Maryam Sûra of the Qur’ân al-kerîm, which purport: “They [Jews and Christians] say: “(Allah who is) Rahmân (Gracious) has begotten a son!” “Indeed ye have put forth a thing (a lie) most monstrous!” “At it the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin,” “That they should invoke a son for (Allâhu ta’âlâ) the Most Gracious.” “For it is not consonant with the majesty of (Allâhu ta’âlâ) the Most Gracious that He should beget a son.” “Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must come to (Allâhu ta’âlâ) the Most Gracious as a slave.” (19-88 to 93) Allâhu ta’âlâ declares as follows in the third âyat of the Ikhlâs Sûra of the Qur’ân al-kerîm: “... He (Allah) begetteth not, nor is He begotten. ...” (112-3) The hundred and seventy-first âyat of the Nisâ Sûra purports, “O People of the Book [Jews and Christians]! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allâhu ta’âlâ aught but the truth. [Do not slander Him by saying that Îsâ ‘alaihis-salâm’ is the son of Allah.] Îsâ (Jesus) the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allâhu ta’âlâ, and His Word (Creation), which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: [O Christians.] so believe in Allâhu ta’âlâ and apostles. Say not ‘Trinity’, nor say that Allâhu ta’âlâ is the third god in the trinity: desist; it will be better for you; Allâhu ta’âlâ is ONE Ma’bûd (One Being who is worthy of being worshipped): Glory be to Him: (Far exalted is He) above having a son. ...” (4-171) In the tenth âyat of Baqara Sûra, Allâhu ta’âlâ describes those people who interpolated the Bible as follows: “In their hearts is a disease; and Allâhu ta’âlâ has increased their disease: and grievous is the penalty they (incur), because they are false (to themselves).” (2-10) The seventy-ninth âyat of Baqara Sûra purports, “Woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: ‘This is from God.’ To traffic with it for a miserable price! – Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.” (2-79) – 99 –
