Is The Old Testament God’s Word?

Praise to Allah1 (S.W)2, the cherisher and sustainer of the worlds, and may peace and blessings be upon all of His messengers.

In every age and generation there will be honest people who are looking for the true guidance. Allah (S.W.) had sent his messengers with signs, light, and true guidance. “It was We who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance and light.” (Holy Quran, Surah 5. Al-Ma’ida – 44)

“And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah.” (Holy Quran, Surah 5. Al-Ma’ida – 46)

The Holy Quran, the final divine book, then was revealed to reveal the light and the true guidance. “O people of the Book! There hath come to you our Messenger, revealing to you much that ye used to hide in the Book, and passing over much (that is now unnecessary). There hath come to you from Allah a (new) light and a perspicuous Book,- Wherewith Allah guides all who seek His good pleasure to ways of peace and safety, and leads them out of darkness, by His will, unto the light,- guides them to a path that is straight.” (Holy Quran, Surah 5. Al-Ma’ida – 15 -16)

However, the previous books of Allah (S.W.) that revealed to prophets were lost due to the circumstances of writing and the way of conservation, and they were subject to distortion and loss. Thus, people went astray from the guidance and the right path, and people used other books that attributed to Allah (S.W.).

These books do not contain – except slightly – the true guidance and light. These written books contain and conclude the weakness of the human beings and their ignorance. They are full of contradictions, and issues, which no sane or wise person would accept their attribution to Allah (S.W.). This does not mean that these books are lack of the true guidance completely, but, as I mentioned, they were subject to alteration and human contradiction.

This is the Muslims’ belief of the previous books. Muslims believe in the books that Allah (S.W.) had revealed to his prophets, but they do not accept that the Old Testament is Allah’s (S.W.) word, even though it contains some of His revelation and guidance.

However, Christians and Jews believe that these books (The books of the Old Testament) are divine, and consider them the word of Allah (S.W.) that He revealed to His prophets and the Jews read and kept throughout their long history.

With this significant difference between the two teams, I propose the question, “Is the Old Testament Allah’s (S.W.) word?”, which I will try to answer in this book of this series, and present it to those who are searching for the true guidance among the people of the book (Christians and Jews).

In this series, I will search the folds of the sacred books of the Christians, to look, through the big pile of falsehood, for the truth that the prophet had spoken. In addition, I will prove, to those who believe in the divinity of these books, that they are not the word of Allah (S.W.). I have endorsed my evidence with the sayings of the church scholars, its councils, and foundations. Moreover, I used some of the sayings of the Western free thinkers, who spoke some of the truth that we are looking for in this series; the true guidance and light series.

Oh our Lord (Allah S.W), guide us to the truth by your will, indeed, you guide whom you want to the right path. Amen. Continue reading

A Hand Through The Door For My New Sister [In Accordance With The Qur’an And Authentic Sunnah Of The Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)]

This book, A Hand Through the Door for my New Sister, written by an American Muslimah (female Muslim), is a reference work covering numerous aspects of the religion which are of concern to the sea of new sisters whom Allah has guided to be members of the religion of truth and guidance, Islam. It also, however, equally concerns Muslim ladies of all backgrounds and levels who desier to learn various aspects of their religion.

Of the matters this book discusses are the pillars of Islam, the articles of faith, tawhid (monotheism), and its opposite (shirk), the dress of a believing lady, rulings pertaining to mense, assocations and interaction with family members, marriage, divorce, the food of the believers, repentance, death, paradise and hell, and a number of other aspects of the religion.

A significant feature of this book is that the author has relied on and provided textual evidence from the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah for the many rulings presented throughout the discourse. We pray that Allah rewards the author for her work and concern and may this book of good use to all those who read it. Continue reading

Is The New Testament God’s Word?

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/is-the-new-testament-god-s-word.jpg

Munqidh ibn Mahmoud As-Saqqaar

Allah (S.W) had sent his messengers – one after another – with signs, true guidance and light, to reveal them to people.

Among these faithful prophets was the great messenger and prophet, the Messiah, Jesus (PBUH). Allah (S.W.) bestowed the Gospel on him. “Then, We sent after them Our Messengers, and We sent ‘Îsâ (Jesus) – son of Maryam (Mary), and gave him the Injeel (Gospel). And We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy. But the monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allâh therewith, but they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed their (due) reward; but many of them are Fâsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allâh).” (Al-Hadid: 27)

Allah (S.W.) asks the believers to believe in all prophets and in the revelations; He (S.W.) has given them. “Say (O Muslims), ‘We believe in Allâh and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Ibrâhîm (Abraham), Ismâ‘îl (Ishmael), Ishâq (Isaac), Ya‘qûb (Jacob), and to Al-Asbât [the offspring of the twelve sons of Ya‘qûb (Jacob)], and that which has been given to Mûsâ (Moses) and ‘Îsâ (Jesus), and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islâm).’” (Al-Baqarah: 136)

Describing the believers, Allah (S.W.) says, “The Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله علیھ وسلم ) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allâh, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say), ‘We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers.’” (Al-Baqarah: 285)

The Gospel that Allah (S.W.) revealed to Jesus (PBUH) is not necessarily the chapters of the New Testament, which Christians consider holy, and was written by Jesus’ (PBUH) disciples and those after them. These human stories, biographies, and letters are not the revelation that Allah (S.W.) had revealed to Jesus (PBUH).

How could people attribute their own writings to Allah (S.W.) falsely? “Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, ‘This is from Allâh,’ to purchase with it a little price! Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for that they earn thereby.” (Al- Baqarah: 79)

This verse is clear divine evidence that the people of the book (Jews and Christians) had altered and changed the word of God. It declares that what they have now, Old and New Testaments is not the word of Allah (S.W.).

Nevertheless, Muslims have no objection that some of the New Testament passages, which tell us about Jesus’ (PBUH) advices, sayings and deeds, are true. This is the Muslims’ opinion regarding this issue. Christians believe that the New Testament is Allah’s (S.W.) word that was written by holy men with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

However, do the scientific historical evidences (and even the New Testament passages) support what the Holy Quran says or do they support the Christians belief? In our first book of this series, we proved that the Old Testament is not the word of Allah (S.W.). In this message, which is the second in this series, we will answer another question; is the New Testament God’s word?

To answer this question, we will investigate the Holy Bible, Christian theologians, researchers, and the science and history scholars, and following a scientific methodology.

Asking and praying to Allah (S.W.) to guide us all to the right path, I present this work to anyone who is looking for the truth. Continue reading

A Program Of Studies For New Muslims

In 1974, the Planning Committee of the Muslim Students’ ssociation of the U. S. and Canada sparked the idea of designing a comprehensive curriculum for American Muslims who have recently embraced Islam. Such curriculum is greatly needed by a large population of Muslims in North America to help them understand Islam as a complete way of life, practice it and live up to its ideals. To satisfy this need, the task of producing the curriculum and its supportive material was entrusted to the Department of Education, Publication and Information. Through the efforts of that Department and the Islamic Teaching Center, Dr. Mohammad Moinuddin Siddiqui undertook to work out” A Program of Studies for New Muslims.” His deep commitment to Islam and conviction of the significance of education as a crucial vehicle for social change prompted him to devote his time and finish the first stage of this tremendous and challenging work. The second stage is the writing of text books which are specifically tailored to the sequential level series of this program of studies.

The rapid growth of Islam among the people of North America is encouraging and, at the same time, challenging. The challenge lies with Muslims who must measure up to their responsibility of increasing the momentum of propagating Islam and effectively consolidating and strengthening their ranks. Only through developing the true Islamic personality, knowledgeable and committed, capable of taking initiative and broad-minded, can we meet the challenge. Education is the most effective process to accelerate the development of such an Islamic personality and to strengthen and consolidate the ranks of the Muslims. It is an activating force which will enable them to substitute actions based on truth and reality for actions rooted in imitation and outmoded traditions. Education is a central tool to bring about Islamic social change we want to see among Muslims in North America. This change can come only from the actions of the Muslims themselves. To act correctly, a Muslim must first acquire authentic knowledge, change his mode of thought and improve his practical ability. These changes must result from the Muslims’ own decisions and efforts if they are to be educationally enduring, religiously sound, socially important and physically permanent. It is with this aim and intention that the Islamic Teaching Center has prepared “A Program of Studies for New Muslims” It is an attempt to enable the New Muslim to respond to his environment in North America equipped with an Islamic framework reflecting his beliefs, values, attitudes and behavior which characterize him as a new breed of men enjoining right, eradicating evil, forbidding wrong and believing in Allah. We pray to Allah Ta’ ala that this program may prove beneficial to our brothers and sisters who have recently embraced Islam. Yet it is also a good idea for all of us to use this program to increase our knowledge. May Allah Ta’ ala grant us success and keep us firm on His path. Continue reading
