PREFACE

 

To investigate, compare, and analyze, through honest and clear means, with the aim of realizing the truth, is a Divine as well as a human approach. However, prejudice, pride and envy based on ignorance of the other is extremely uncultured and totally rejected conduct.

 

ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY is devoted for this very aim. Following this very method, namely, reaching the truth by means of thorough investigation, comparison and analysis.

 

As Divine religions, Islam and Christianity have much in common as they are revealed by the One and Same Sender; ALLAH, the Almighty.

 

As a matter of fact, both Muhammad and Jesus (pbut) are great Divine Prophets, each of them spoke honestly and friendly of the other. Jesus gave glad tidings of Muhammad's coming as

He said:

 

"... I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth."

(John 16:12, 13)

Muhammad (pbuh), on his part, considered belief in Jesus' Prophethood a pre-requisite for a full and perfect Faith. As the Glorious Qur'an says:

 

(...Say, ye: ...We believe in Goal, and the Revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to all prophets from their Lord. We make no difference between one and another of them and we bow to God (in Islam). `

(Qur'an II. 136)

 

As this is the stand of both prophets, Muslims and Christians alike should have been following in their exact footsteps. Unfortunately, most of them, due to great ignorance, misunderstanding and even envy have gone astray and lost their steps.

 

ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY clarifies the way for those who have the will to go on the Right Path, through intellectual as well as textual evidences. It sheds light on the different fundamentals of both religions; the Glorious Qur'an & the Gospels, Muhammad & Jesus (pbut), doctrines and moral teachings found in Islam and Christianity, etc.

 

AL-FALAH, for it has committed itself and devoted all its resources and efforts to remove and clarify all misconceptions and distortions aroused around Islam and Muslims all over the world, presents this new edition of the valuable book ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY for all those who beseech the truth.
