Every individual is born into a religious environment that is not in accordance with his/her choice; a child is raised to follow the religion or ideology of his/her family, society or culture. Even as a new-born, he/she is assigned either the religion of his/her family or the ideology of the state; in some countries, the child’s assigned religion is even recorded on his/her birth certificate. By the time individuals reach their teens, they have usually accepted the beliefs of their parents or their particular society, feeling that they have little choice in the matter.

However, individuals often encounter, or are exposed, to various beliefs and ideologies throughout the course of their lives, leading many to question long-held beliefs, traditions or philosophical ideas. They begin to question the validity of their own beliefs. Seekers of truth often reach a point of confusion, especially upon realising that the believers of every religion, sect, ideology and philosophy claim to profess the one and only truth.

Amongst these beliefs is the one which Christians hold against Muhammad (salla Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam – blessings and peace be upon him), the Prophet of Islam, that he is not a true Messenger of God – Allah (subhânahu wa Ta‘âlâ – Glorified and Exalted is He).

Simply and logically, this book sheds light on biblical proofs that Muhammad is a true Prophet of Allah, who was prophesised about by his directly-preceding Prophet Jesus (‘alayhi as-salâm – peace be upon him). Before we proceed with the book, here is a reminder to bear the following four things in mind in one’s quest for the truth:

Firstly, Allah has given us the ability and the intellect to discover the answer to this crucial question, which is also a lifechanging decision: What is the True Religion?

Secondly, Allah, the Most Compassionate, has not left us to go astray without any guidance. Indeed, He sent us prophets with scriptures to show us the right path.

Thirdly, always remember the underlying reason for this search: the ever-lasting life to come depends upon finding the true religion in this life. This should be your ultimate motivation, and a driving force to keep you searching until you are completely satisfied.

Fourthly, one can only determine the true path and make a rational and correct decision if one willingly puts aside, all the emotions and prejudices, which often blind one to reality.

With this short preface, I leave you to peruse the book. Continue reading

Is The Bible The Word Of God?

Many books have been glorified and respected by people throughout the ages and centuries. They were preserved because of their importance so that people may benefit from them; moreover, a culture can be inherited from them in order to maintain the personality of a specific nation, whether the book is good or bad or a mix of good and bad.

When it comes to the scriptures which Allah (Subhânahu wa Ta‘âlâ – Glorified and Exalted is He) has revealed to the people, human beings attempted to preserve them. However, the result was that there are now different versions of the same referred book, which indicates a failure of the preservation attempt.

No one can argue that Allah has revealed the Torah and the Gospel to prophets Jesus (‘Alayhi as-salâm – peace be upon him) and Moses respectively. However, can any one of their followers put their finger on a specific version of the Old Testament or the New Testament and say: this is the word of God which He revealed to prophet Jesus or Moses? I leave the answer to the respected reader.

However, when it comes to the Qur’an, the whole Muslim community [more than one billion Muslims] testifies the preservation of the Qur’an across the centuries.

In this little booklet, light is shed on various proofs that the Bible, which was revealed to Jesus was widely altered; whereas, the Qur’an is wholly preserved, and hence it is the only reliable source of divine teachings in the hands of people today that can described as ‘the word of Allah’.

Before we start reading the book, I would like to thank Dr. Bilal Philips, and Brother Muhammad bin Abdullah Caraballo who gave me the opportunity to learn and quote from their books.

With this short preface, I leave you to peruse the book. Continue reading

Let The Bible Speak

The book of the religion remains always as proof of the religion. If the book is right then its religion is right, if it is wrong: then its religion is wrong.

To consider any scripture as a (HOLY BOOK) it should: – be free of errors, contradictions. – be free of omissions, additions, distortions, alterations. – be free of the low, obscene words. – be free of slander, of God, God’s Prophets. – be free of racism. – describe God in the best possible way, not negatively. – be expressed in the most beautiful language, the language of the creator of languages. – It should not permit what God has forbidden, nor forbid what God has allowed.

You should know that God has prepared a day of reckoning when he will ask you about your sincerity in seeking the truth. – Who ever sincerely sought the truth will be guided, but all those who ignore the truth stubbornly count themselves among the looser on the Day of Judgment. – People to day struggle to enjoy life, why do not they struggle for Paradise? – Why are they after temporary pleasure? While forgetting the ever lasting bliss? – To discover the truth you need to do two things: an enlightened scientific and attentive attitude. A desire to find the truth, no matter where it is. An open mind, free of prejudice and bigotry.

The seeker of truth should fear falsehood, supporting truth and make a firm commitment to it. 1- We turn honestly and sincerely to our Lord, and seek His guidance to reach the truth. 2- How much are we in need of a firm vision of truth and a solid commitment to it, how desperate is our need to appeal to our Lord earnestly for guidance and help in following it. For without God’s help and guidance no one will ever find truth. May Allah guide us always closer to the truth. Continue reading

The Bible Led Me To Islam

This effort is for all Christians who recognize their inner responsibility and yearning for guided worship of the One True God. Worship that is not based on social, secular or family norms, but because it is his/her birthright and duty to worship their (our) Creator.

This book is a compilation of excerpts from several books addressing Christianity that I had the pleasure of reading before and after I became a Muslim. After becoming a Muslim, I continued to read books about Christianity because the “skin” of Christianity was hard to cast off after 28 years in the religion; years that almost led me to becoming the minister of an African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) church In Great Falls, Montana.

I have attempted to select and arrange pertinent information from these resourceful books in a straight forward manner, so as to provide the kind of tailored and consolidated information I would have liked someone to give me during my Christian days. Nevertheless, the plan for me to embrace/revert back to Islam came as prescribed by Allah.

I would like to mention that when I refer to the word “God” in this book, I’m speaking of the One Supreme Being, who has no partners and is not part of a trinity. It should be mentioned that the Arabic word “Allah” was used by Christians as well as by Muslims according to the 1966 edition of Encyc10pedia Britannica (See the word Allah).

I encourage you to set aside your pre-conceived notions about Christianity and Islam, and have an open mind for what is presented. It is my hope (By Allah’s Will) that this effort will open before you a spark of interest that enables you to continue to read beyond the Bible, and make an educated decision after understanding both rehgions. A decision that is based on your choice and not the choice of your parents or the media. Once you have all the facts, you can then align yourself with the only purpose we were created, and that is to worship (Allah) God. Continue reading

Is The New Testament God’s Word?

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

Christianity: The Original And The Present Reality

Christianity The Original And The Present Reality: The author has given a brief history of original Christianity with reference to context, as well as, the present reality of Christianity in the modern world.

All the praise is due to Allâh, Who has guided us to His straight path. We seek His forgiveness and we seek refuge in Him from the evil of our own selves and our bad deeds. ‘Christianity – the Original and the Present Reality’ is a brief treatise in which the author has attempted to open the Christians’ eyes to the true reality of their erroneous beliefs and to guide them to the Truth.

All the Messengers of Allâh had tried their best, to convey the correct creed to their peoples. Prophet ‘Isa, or Jesus, was also among those upright Messengers who strove hard to guide his people to the Truth, but most of them followed their whims and desires and thus went astray.

Believing in the Oneness of Allâh is a basic fundamental in Islam. This belief establishes the relationship between human beings and their Rubb (Lord). As Muslims we firmly believe that Allâh is our Creator, Sustainer and the true God; only He has the right to be worshipped. There is no partner with Him. He has the free hand in the disposal of all affairs.

I am thankful to Br. Muhammad bin ‘Abdullah As-Saheem who has written this booklet in the Arabic language and given us permission to translate it into English. I pray to Allâh to render this booklet beneficial and be a source of guidance and blessing in both this world and the Hereafter. I also appreciate Darussalam’s staff, who spared no effort to complete this work in a very good manner. General Manager: Abdul Malik Mujahid

Introduction:

All praise and thanks are due to Allâh, Who has not taken any creature as a son, nor does He have any partner in His dominion, nor has He any protector from among the lowly creatures. His Greatness is greater than all else. I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship in truth besides Allâh Alone Who is singular and without partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad (PBUH) is His slave, servant and Messenger.

This is a very brief summary in which I intend to clarify the origin of Christianity (Nasraaniyah) and its current reality. It is principally intended for a Christian in order that he may be aware of the roots of his belief. He will perhaps come to understand how Christianity has undergone change and substitution to the point that it has evolved into a man-made composition – this, after having once been a Divine message. I have made it a point to bring forth, within this summary, those evidences that brought forth the truth of the matter from actual texts of the Torah (Tawrah) and the Injeel. This was done to illustrate, to every Christian reader, my intention to point out the truth and to guide towards that which is correct. Thus I write, seeking Allâh’s help. Continue reading

Is The Bible God’s Word

If words have any meaning, do we need to add another word of comment to prove our case? No! But the professional propagandists, after letting the cat out of the bag, still have the face to try to make their readers believe that they have proved beyond the shadow of any doubt that the Bible is the “irrefragable Word of God.” Their semantic gymnastics – equivocating, and playing with words – is amazing. In this book Ahmad deedat takes a critical look at bible text and highlights the many contradictions, additions and deleted verses therein. Continue reading
