THE LIFE IN THIS WORLD- A TRIAL
THE LIFE IN THIS WORLD- A TRIAL
“Blessed be He in Whose hands is the Kingdom of the universe and has power over all things. The One Who created death and life, so that He may put you to test, to find out which of you is best in deeds: He is the All-Mighty, the All-Forgiving. [Blessed be] He who has created seven heavens in full harmony with one another: no fault will thou see in the creation of the Most Gracious. And turn thy vision [upon it] once more: canst thou see any flaw? Yea, turn thy vision [upon it] again and yet again: [and every time] thy vision will fall back upon thee, dazzled and truly defeated…. And, indeed, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lights,and have made them the object of futile guesses for the evil ones [from among men]:and for them have We readied suffering through a blazing flame – for, suffering in hell awaits all who are [thus] bent on blaspheming against their Sustainer:and how vile a journey's end! When they are cast into that [hell], they will hear its breath in drawing as it boils up, well-nigh bursting with fury; [and] every time a host [of such sinners] is flung into it, its keepers will ask them, "Has no Warner ever come to you?" They will reply: "Yea, a Warner did indeed come unto us, but we gave him the lie and said, 'Never has God sent down anything [by way of revelation]! You [self-styled warners] are but lost in a great delusion!"' And they will add: "Had we but listened [to those warnings], or [at least] used our own reason, we would not [now] be among those who are destined for the blazing flame!"(Qur’an;67:1-10)
“ALL PRAISE is due to God, who has bestowed, this divine writ (Qur’an) from on high upon His servant (Muhammad), and has not allowed any deviousness to obscure its meaning:' [a divine writ] unerringly straight, meant to warn [the godless] of a severe punishment from Him, and to give unto the believers who do good works the glad tiding that theirs shall be a goodly reward-a state of bliss] in which they shall dwell beyond the count of time. Furthermore, [this divine writ is meant] to warn all those who assert, "God has taken unto Himself a son." No knowledge whatever have they of Him, and neither had their forefathers: dreadful -is this saying that comes out of their mouths, [and] nothing but falsehood do they utter! But wouldst thou, perhaps,' torment thyself to death with grief over them if they are not willing to believe in this message? Behold, We have willed that all beauty on earth be a means by which We put men to a test,' [showing] which of them are best in conduct; and, verily, [in time] We shall reduce all that is on it to barren dust! AND SINCE the life of this world is but a test,] (Qur’an;18:1-8)
WARFARE IN SELF DEFENCE AND AGAINST OPPRESSION
INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY & ACCOUNTABILITY- NO ORIGINAL SIN OR CHOSEN RACE, GRANT OF MERCY FOR REPENTANT:
“Now those people have passed away; unto them shall be accounted what they have earned, and unto you, what you have earned; and you will not be, judged on the strength of what they did.”(Qur’an;2: 134,141). “..thus did Adam disobey His Lord and allow himself to be seduced (by Satan). But his Lord chose him (for His Grace): He turned to him and gave him guidance.”(Qur’an;20:121-122).
“No bearer of a burden will bear another's burden, and if a heavy laden person cries out for help, none will come forward to share the least of his burden, even though he be a close relative. O Prophet! You can only admonish those who fear their Sustainer - though they cannot see Him - and establish prayer. He that purifies himself does so for his own good. To Allah is the destination of all.”(Qur’an;35:18); “He that seeks guidance, shall be guided to his own advantage, but he that goes astray does so to his own loss. No bearer shall bear the burden of another on the Day of Judgment. And during your worldly life, We do not inflict punishment until We send forth a Messenger to make truth distinct from falsehood.”(Qur’an;17:15); “… no bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. Ultimately you will return to your Sustainer, and He will resolve for you your disputes.”(Qur’an;6:164)
“GOD does not burden any human being with more than he can bear. Everyone will enjoy the credit of his deeds and suffer the debits of his evil-doings. The believers say: "Our LORD! Do not punish us if we forget or make a mistake. - - - - - - Pardon us, Forgive us, Have mercy on us. You are our Protector, help us against the unbelievers."(Qur’an;2:286).
“- -- I will inflict My punishment upon whom I please; yet My mercy encompasses everything- - -”(Qur’an;7:156)
“O Prophet! Tell My devotees that I am indeed the Forgiving, the Merciful;”(Qur’an;15:49)
“GOD says: "O My servants who have transgressed against their souls, do not despair of God’s mercy, for GOD forgives all sins. It is He Who is the Forgiving, the Merciful. Turn in repentance to your LORD, and submit to Him before there comes to you the scourge: for then, there shall be none to help you.”(Qur’an;39:53-54)
Similarly in The Bible:
“The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die." (Ezekiel;18:20-21).
“I, I am He who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.”(Isiah;43:25); “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.”(Jermiah;31:34); “that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.”(Jermiah;36:3); “To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgiveness;”(Daniel;9:9); “But there is forgiveness with thee, That thou mayest be feared”(Psalms;103:4).
“Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.”(Luke;15:7), “Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”(Luke;15:10), “And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet; and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry; for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to make merry.”(Luke;15:21-24);“And forgive us our debts,”(Mathew:6:12, Luke;11:4).
ABRAHAM THE COMMON ANCESTOR & SPIRITUAL FATHER OF MUSLIMS, CHRISTIANS AND JEWS
“Remember that when Abraham was tested by his LORD with certain commands, he fulfilled them. God said: "Surely, I will make you the leader of mankind." "What about my offspring?" Asked Abraham. "My pledge," said God, "will not apply to the evil doers.”(Qura’n;2:124)
“Abraham was neither a “Jew” nor a “Christian”, but was one who turned away form all that is false, having surrendered himself unto GOD; and he was not of those who joined gods with Him. Surely the people who have the best claim to Abraham are those who follow him as does this Prophet (Muhammad) and all who believe (in him) – and GOD is near unto the believers.”(Qur’an;3:67-68)
“If you were Abraham's children, you would do what Abraham did.” (Jesus, John; 8:39)
ROLE OF INTELLECT, WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE IN ATTAINMENT OF FAITH
“Likewise men, beasts and cattle have their different colors. In fact, only those among His servants who possess knowledge fear GOD; surely GOD is All-Mighty, All-Forgiving.”(Qur’an;35:28)
“O my Lord! Bestow wisdom on me and join me with the righteous ;”(Qur’an;26:83)
“.. O my Lord! Advance me in knowledge.”(Qur’an;20:114)
“He also subjected to you whatever is between the heavens and the earth; all from Himself. Surely there are signs in this for Those Who Think.”(45:13)
“No human being can ever attain to the faith except by the Will of GOD and it is who lays the loathsome of evil (of disbelief) upon those who will not use their reason”.(Qur’an;10:100)
“They (non believers) will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we rejected Him and said, '(Allah) never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!'" They will further say: "Had we but listened or used Our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the companions of the Blazing Fire!"They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the companions of the Blazing Fire! As for those who fear their Lord Unseen, for them is forgiveness and a great reward. And whether ye hide your word or publish it, He certainly has (full) knowledge, of the secrets of (all) hearts. Should He not know,- He that created? and He is the one that understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them).”(Qur’an;67:9-14)
FUNDAMENTS OF FAITH
“O ye who believe! Believe in GOD and His messenger (Muhammad) and the Scripture which He hath revealed unto His messenger, and the Scripture which He revealed aforetime. Whoso disbelieves in GOD and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers and the Last Day, he verily hath wandered far astray.”(Qur’an;4:136)
TRIAL OF FAITH
"Do men think that they will be left alone on saying "We believe" and that they will not be tested? "(Qur’an;29:2).
“We shall surely test your steadfastness with fear and famine, with loss of property, life and produce. Give good news to those who endure with patience; who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "We belong to GOD and to Him we shall return." Such are the people on whom there are blessings and Mercy from GOD; and they are the ones that are rightly guided.”(Qur’an;2:155-157).
“By the time through the ages! Surely mankind is in loss, Except such as have Faith and do righteous deeds; exhort one another to the truth and exhort one another to patience.”(Qur’an;103-1-3)
NO FORCED CONVERSION IN ISLAM
“Let there be no compulsion In the matters of Faith: truth stands out Clear from error: Whoever rejects evil and believes In GOD has grasped the Most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. and GOD hears and knows all things.”(Qur’an;2: 256)
“Invite (all) to the way of Thy Lord with wisdom and preaching; and argue with them In ways that are best and Most gracious: for He knows best, who have strayed from His path, and who receive guidance.”(Qur’an;16: 125)
CONVENING THE MESSAGE OF ISLAM LOGICALLY AND PEACEFULLY
“And dispute not with the people of the Book (Jews, Christians), except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, "We believe In the Revelation which has come down to us and In that which came down to you; Our GOD and your GOD is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam)."(Qur’an;29:46)
“So if They dispute with thee, say: "I have submitted My whole self to GOD and so have those who follow me." and say to the people of the Book and to those who are unlearned: "Do you (also) submit yourselves?" if They do, They are In right guidance, but if They turn back, Thy duty is to convey the Message; and In GOD’s sight are (all) His servants.”(Qur’an;3:20)
“Therefore do Thou give admonition, for Thou art one to admonish. Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. But if any turn away and reject GOD, GOD will punish Him with a mighty punishment,”(Qur’an;88:21-24)
“Say: will ye dispute with us about GOD, seeing that He is Our Lord and your Lord; that we are responsible for Our doings and ye for yours; and that we are sincere (in Our Faith) In Him?”(Qur’an;2:139)
“To you be your way, and to me mine.”(Qur’an; 6.109:6)
“See Thou such a one As takes for His god His own passion (or impulse)? couldst Thou be a disposer of affairs for Him? .”(Qur’an; 25:43)
“Surely this is but a reminder, so let him who wills, take the Right way to His Lord”.(Qur’an;73:19)
“O Prophet proclaim: "This (Qur’an) is the Truth from your Lord. Now let him who will, believe in it, and him who will, deny it." As for those who reject it, for such wrongdoers We have prepared a Fire whose flames will hem them in like the walls of a tent. When they cry for help, they will be showered with water as hot as molten brass, which will scald their faces. What a dreadful drink and what a horrible residence!”(Qur’an;18:29)
“You can warn only him who is willing to take the reminder to heart, and who stands in awe of the Most Gracious although He is beyond the reach of human perceptions; unto such, then give the glad tidings of [God’s] forgiveness and of a most excellent reward” (Qur’an;36:11)
“Follow the ones who ask no reward of you and are rightly guided.”(Qur’an;36:21)
“Did I not enjoin you, O children of Adam, not to worship Satan, who is your open foe, and that you should worship Me which is the Right Way? Yet, in spite of this, he (Satan) has led a great number of you astray. Could you not then use your reason?(Qur’an;36:60-62)
“They seek to extinguish the Light of GOD with their mouths, but GOD will perfect His Light, much as the unbelievers may dislike it. It is He Who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, to the end that He make it prevail over all (false) religions, much as the idolaters may dislike it.”(Qur’an;61:8-9); “Truly the religion with GOD (is) The Surrender (to His will and guidance-Islam)…(Qur’an;3:19)
“Then proclaim: "Praise be to GOD, very soon He will show you His signs and you will recognize them. Your Lord is not unaware of what you do.”(Qur’an;27:93); “Soon shall We show them Our signs in the universe and in their own souls, until it becomes clear to them that this (Qur'an) is indeed the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is a witness over everything?”(Qur’an;41:53)
BROTHERHOOD OF BELIEVERS
“The believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: They enjoin what is just, and forbid what is Evil: They observe regular prayers, practice regular charity, and obey GOD and His Messenger. on them will GOD pour His mercy: for GOD is Exalted In power, wise.”(Qur’an;9:71)
ISLAM REJECTS SECTARIANISM INTOLERANCE AND EXTREMISM
“Mankind was one nation having one religion. Later when people invented other religions, GOD appointed Prophets as bearers of good news and warnings; and revealed to them the Book with the True Guidance to settle the matters of dispute between mankind. But the very people to whom it was given, started disputes after the clear arguments had come to them, because of rivalry between one another. GOD has guided the believers by His will to the truth in those matters in which they had differences. GOD guides whom He pleases towards the Right Way.”(Qura’n;2:213)
“We have made you (Muslims) a community of the middle way (keeping balance in extremes) so that you may testify against mankind and that your own Messenger may testify against you.”(Qur’an;2:143)..
“Their doom is because GOD has revealed the Book with the truth; surely those who seek causes of dispute in the Book (The Qur'an) are in extreme schism (divergence).”(Qura’n;2:176).
“Be not like those who became divided into sects and who started to argue against each other after clear revelations had come to them. Those responsible for division and arguments will be sternly punished” (Qura’n;3:105)
“In fact, your religion is one religion, and I am your only Lord: so fear Me Alone. Yet people have divided themselves into factions and each faction rejoices in its own doctrines - well! Leave them in their heedlessness for an appointed time. Do they think that, in giving them wealth and children, We are eager for their welfare? By no means! They do not understand the reality of the matter.”(Qura’n;23:52-56)
“those who divide their religion into sects and become separate groups, each group rejoicing in its own circle. When an affliction befalls the people, they turn in prayer to their Lord in repentance. But when He let them taste a blessing from Him, lo! Some of them begin to ascribe other powers a share in their Sustainers divinity, showing no gratitude for What We have given them. Enjoy yourselves; soon you will find out your folly.”(Qura’n;30:32-34)
“Surely those who divide the religion into sects and identify themselves as a sect, O Muhammad, you have nothing to do with them. Their case will be called to account by GOD Himself, He will inform them as to what they did.”(Qura’n;6:159).
PEOPLE OF THE BOOK! (JEWS AND CHRISTIANS)
“ Say: "O People of the Book! (Jews and Christians) come to common terms As between us and you: that we worship none but GOD, that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than GOD." if they turn away then tell them: "Bear witness that it is we who have surrendered ourselves un to Him (in Islam).”(Qura’n;3:64)
“And there are certainly among the people of the Book those who believe in Allah in the revelation to you and in the revelation to them bowing in humility to Allah: they will not sell the signs of Allah for a miserable gain! for them is a reward with their Lord and Allah is swift in account.”(Qura’n;3:199).
"But seek, with the (wealth) which GOD has bestowed on thee, the home of the Hereafter, nor forget Thy portion In This world: but do Thou good, As GOD has been good to thee, and seek not (occasions for) mischief In the land: for GOD loves not those who do mischief.”(Qura’n;28:77)
“When it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," They say: "Why, we only Want to make peace!" Of a surety, They are the ones who make mischief, but They realize (it) not.”(Qura’n;3:64)
KILLING OF INNOCENT HUMAN NOT PERMITTED
“You shall not kill anyone whom GOD has forbidden, except for just cause under the law. If anyone is killed unjustly, We have granted the right of retribution to his heir, but let him not carry his vengeance too far in killing the culprit through taking the law in his own hands, as he is supported by the law.”Qura’n;17:33)
“….. if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief In the land - it would be As if He slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be As if He saved the life of the whole people. then although there came to them Our apostles with Clear Signs, yet, Even after that, many of them continued to Commit excesses In the land. ).”(Qura’n;5:32)
WARFARE IN SELF DEFENCE AND AGAINST OPPRESSION
“Fight In the cause of GOD those who Fight you, but do not transgress limits; for GOD loves not transgressors. And slay them Wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where They have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but Fight them not at the sacred Mosque, unless They (first) Fight you there; but if They Fight you, slay them. such is the reward of those who suppress Faith. But if They cease, GOD is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. And Fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and Faith In GOD. but if They cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression.” (Qura’n;2:190-193)
RUTHLESS WARFARE OF BIBLE
“And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.” (Leviticus;26:7-8).
"Now therefore Kill every male among the little ones, and Kill every woman (female) that hath known man by lying (having sex) with him. "But keep Alive for yourselves all the Girls and all the women who are Virgins."(Numbers;31:17-18).
“Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”(1Samel;15:3);
“slay utterly the old man, the young man and the virgin, and little children and women; but come not near any man upon whom is the mark: and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the old men that were before the house.”(Ezakhel;9:6).
“But in the cities of these peoples that the LORD your GOD gives you for an inheritance, (O’ Jews) you shall save alive nothing that breathes, (Deuteronomy;20:16).
"He (Joshua) let None remain alive." (Joshua;10:28).
“Let the high praises of GOD be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm;149:6-9).
"And when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Ye have wronged yourselves by your choosing of the calf (for worship) so turn in penitence to your Creator, and kill (the guilty) yourselves. That will be best for you with your Creator and He will relent toward you. Lo! He is the Relenting, the Merciful.”(Qur’an;2:54, also mentioned in Bible in the book of Exodos;32:26-28.).
“But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.”(Jesus Christ, Luke;19:27)
“Think Not that I am come to send Peace on earth; I came Not to send Peace, but a Sword.” (Mathew;10:34, also Luke;12:49,51).
“And, behold, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his Sword, and struck a servant of the high priests, and cut off his ear.”(Mathew;26:51)
“And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets -- who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, received promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.” (Saint. Paul, Hebrews; 11: 32-34).
“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.”
(Jesus Christ, Mathew; 7:5).
JESUS CHRIST [Peace Be Upon Him]
“He (GOD) is the creator of the heavens and the earth. How could He have a child without there ever having been a mate for Him – since it is He who has created everything and He alone knows everything.”(Qur’an;6:101)
“The Messiah, son of Mary, was no other than a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) had passed away before him. And his mother was a saintly woman. And they both used to eat (earthly) food. See how we make the revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away!”(Qur’an;5:75).
“He (Jesus Christ) was no more than a servant: We granted Our favor to him (miracles, wonders and signs) and We made him an example to the Children of Israel.” (Qur’an;43:59).
"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).
“He (Jesus) is, in fact, a sign for the coming of the Hour of Doom. Therefore, have no doubt about its coming, follow me; this is the Right Way.”(Qur’an;43:61)
“They do blaspheme who say: "GOD is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O children of Israel! worship GOD my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with GOD, GOD will forbid him the garden and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help.”(Qur’an;5:72)
THE MISSION AND PREACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST
“Then in the footsteps of those Prophets, We sent Jesus the son of Mary confirming whatever remained intact from the Torah in his time, and gave him the Injeel (Gospel) wherein was guidance and light, corroborating what was revealed in the Torah; a guidance and an admonition to those who fear GOD.”(Qura’n;5:46)
Jesus said: ‘It is written, You shall worship the Lord your GOD, and him only shall you serve.’’(Luke;4:8).
“Think not that I (Jesus Christ) have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Whoever thenrelaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”(Mathew;5:17-20).
However Paul cancelled it by saying: “But now we are discharged from the law (of Moses), dead to that which held us captive, so that we serve not under the old written code but in the new life of the Spirit.” (Paul, Romans; 7:6).
JESUS CHRIST ADMONISHED THE PEOPLE AND PREACHED OBEDIENCE TO GOD
Jesus said: “Not every one who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven (Islam: Surrender to will of GOD). On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord’, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers’.” (Methew;7:21-23).
TRINITY - THE BIBLE
The only one verse in the whole of Bible which, the supporters interpreted to supports the Christian dogma of TRINITY is:
"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one."(The first Epistle of John; 5:7,8).
In some volumes this changed as:
“There are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree”.
In the ‘foot note’ of this verse in ‘New International Version Bible’ it is written; ‘not found in any Greek manuscript before the sixteen century.
Dr C.I, Scofield, D.D. backed by eight other D.D.'s in a footnote to this verse opine:
"It is generally agreed that this verse has no manuscript authority and has been inserted ”.
"The fundamentalist Christians still retain this fabrication whereas, in all the modern translations including the Revised Standard Version (RSV) this pious deceit has been unceremoniously expunged.
TRINITY - THE QUR’AN
“Say: He is GOD the One and Only; GOD is the Self-Sufficient (independent of all, while all are dependent on Him); He begets not, nor is He begotten; And there is none comparable to Him”.(Qur’an;112:1-4).
“O People of the Book! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning GOD save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of GOD, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in GOD and His messengers, and say not "Three". Cease! (it is) better for you! GOD is only One GOD. Far is it removed from His transcendent majesty that he should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And GOD is sufficient as Defender.”(Qur’an;4:171)
“They do blaspheme who say: "GOD is one of three in a Trinity." There is no god except One GOD. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy) verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.”(Qur’an;5:73)
“Say: "O people of the Book! exceed not in your religion the bounds (of what is proper) trespassing beyond the truth nor follow the vain desires of people who went wrong in times gone by who misled many and strayed (themselves) from the even way.”(Qur’an;5:77)
“If they would have observed the Laws of Torah and the Gospel and other Revelations which were sent to them from their LORD, they would have certainly enjoyed abundance from above and from beneath. Though there are some among them on the moderate course; but most of them do nothing but evil.”(Qur’an;5:66)
“Yet they are not all alike: there are some among the People of the Book who are upright, who recite the revelations of GOD all night long and then prostrate before Him;”(Qur’an;3:113)
“And behold, GOD will say: "O Jesus, the son of Marry, Did you ever say to the people, "worship me and my mother as gods beside GOD?" He will answer: "Glory to You! How could I say what I had no right to say? If I had ever said so, you would have certainly known it. You know what is in my heart, but I know not what is in Yours; for You have full knowledge of all the unseen.I never said anything other than what You commanded me to say, that is to worship GOD, Who is my LORD and your LORD. I was a witness over them as long as I remained among them; but when You called me off, You were the Watcher over them and You are a Witness to everything.If You punish them, they surely are Your servants; and if You forgive them, You are Mighty, Wise."(Qur’an;5:116-118)
“Rest assured that Believers (Muslims), Jews, Christians and Sabians - whoever believes in GOD and the last day and perform good deeds - will be rewarded by their Rabb; they will have nothing to fear or to regret.”(Qur’an;2:62)
PROPHESIES OF ADVENT OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM):
“[O Muhammad], We have not sent you but as a blessing for all the worlds.”(Qur’an;21:107)
"Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom They find mentioned In their own (scriptures). In the law and the Gospel;- for He 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, honor him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is They who will prosper."(Qur’an;7:157); “Those to whom We have given the Scripture (their scholars) recognize this (Muhammad) as they know their own sons. Those who have lost their own souls refuse therefore to believe.”(Qur’an;6:20);
"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him"(Deuteronomy;18:18,19).
“His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely(Muhammadim). This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem."(Song of Solomon;5:16): “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”
While prophesizing, about Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) said: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth (referring to Muhammad) is come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me"(John; 16:12-14)
"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever."(John;14:16);“But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me;”(John;15:26)
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”(John;16:7). Ahmed" or "Muhammad" meaning "the one who praises" or "the praised one" is almost the translation of the Greek word ‘Periclytos’. In the Gospel of John;14:16, 15:26, and 16:7, Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) actually prophesized “Ahmed” by name, word 'Comforter' in Greek ‘Paracletos’ or ‘Periclytos’ refers to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
"And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said, 'O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.' But when he came to them with clear signs, they said, 'This is evident sorcery!”(Qur’an;61:6); “Ye People of the Book! Why do ye clothe truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while ye have knowledge?”(Qur’an;3:71).
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him ) has also been prophesized in the Zoroaster, Buddhist and Hindu Scriptures: ‘Bhavishya Purana in the Prati Sarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3 Shloka 5 to 8’;Bhavishya Purana in the Pratisarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3 Shloka 10 to 27; Bhavishya Purana, Parv - III Khand 1 Adhay 3 Shloka 21-23; and Samveda Book II Hymn 6 verse 8.
GENERAL ATTITUDE OF JEWS AND CHRISTIANS
“Strongest among men In enmity to the believers wil Thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them In love to the believers wilt Thou find those who say, "We are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and They are not arrogant.”(Qur’an; 5:82.)
SANCTITY AND SECURITY OF CHURCHES, SYNAGOGUES AND MOSQUES IN ISLAM
“And who is more unjust than He who forbids that In places for the worship of GOD, GOD’s name should be celebrated?-whose zeal is (in fact) to ruin them? it was not fitting that such should themselves enter them except In fear. for them there is nothing but disgrace In This world, and In the world to come, an exceeding torment.”(Qur’an;2:114)
“(They are) those who have been expelled from their homes In defiance of right,- (for no Cause) except that They say, "Our Lord is GOD.. did not GOD Check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, In which the name of GOD is commemorated In abundant measure. GOD will certainly aid those who aid His (cause);- for Verily GOD is full of strength, Exalted In Might, (able to enforce His Will).”(Qur’an;22:40)
LET US PRAY:
“Our Lord!" Do not cause our hearts to deviate now after you have guided us. Grant us Your own Mercy; You are the Grantor of bounties without measure.”(Qur’an;3:8).
