Muhammed The Natural Successor To Christ
We will now allow the Spirit
of Truth to lay the Ghost of Jewish and Christian extremism, and put
the records straight regarding their controversies about the Messiah.
The Jews said that Jesus (pbuh) was the illegitimate son of Mary
because he could not point a finger to a father. The Christians for the
same reason made him into a God and the "begotten" son of God.
Just one verse to debunk this lie!
O People of the Book!
Do not go to extremes
in your religion: nor say of Allah anything but the truth.
Christ1 Jesus the son of Mary was no
more than a messenger of Allah, and His Word which he bestowed upon
And a Spirit proceeding
so believe in Allah and
Say not "Trinity":
desist: it will be better for you:
For your Allah is One
Glory be to Him:
(Far Exalted is He) above having
a son. To Him belongs all
things in the heavens and the earth.
And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
(SURA NISAA) Holy Qur’an 4:171
1. Christ: In the Arabic text of the
Holy Qur’an the word is Masih, which is the same as the Hebrew
Note 657/6 on the above
Just as a foolish servant
may go wrong by excess of zeal for his master, so in religion people's
excesses may lead them to blasphemy or a spirit the very opposite of
The Jewish excesses in the
direction of formalism, racialism, exclusiveness, and rejection of
Christ Jesus have been denounced in many places in the Holy Qur'an.
Here the Christian attitude
is condemned, which raises Jesus to an equality with God; in some cases
venerates Mary almost to idolatry; attributes a physical son to God;
and invents the doctrine of the Trinity, opposed to all reason, which
according to the Athanasian Creed, unless a man believes, he is doomed
to hell for ever."
The attributes of Christ are
1. That he was the son of a woman, Mary, and therefore a man.
2. But an apostle, a man with a mission from God, and
therefore entitled to honour.
3. A Word bestowed on Mary, for he was created by God's word
"Be" (kun) and he was. H.Q. 3:59.
4. A spirit proceeding from God, but not God: his life and
his mission were more limited than in the case of some other apostles,
though we must pay equal honour to him as a man of God.
The doctrines of Trinity, equality with God and sonship, are
repudiated as blasphemies. God is independent of all needs and has no
need of a son to manage His affairs."
Abdullah Yusuf Ali
NOTHING FROM SELF
You give this Spirit of
Truth (Muhummed pbuh) too much credit, when you allege that he wrote
the preceding verses and further authored more than six thousand other
verses of the Noble Qur’an.
He cries to
us again and again in the Book of God, that this is not my handiwork —
"IT IS NO LESS THAN AN INSPIRATION SENT
DOWN TO HIM (Muhummed)" (Holy
Exactly as it was prophesied by Jesus (pbuh)
be shall not speak from himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that
shall he speak...
(HOLY BIBLE) John 16: 13
testification and glorification by this "another Comforter,"
does not placate the Christians. Because Muhummed (pbuh) did not pander
to their prejudices. To them glorification meant to deify Jesus (pbuh)
— to make him into a God. Instead of solving their dilemma
whether Jesus (pbuh) "died" on the cross as a man, or as a God? They
have now invented a trilemma. A word not to be found in any
dictionary in the world. Josh McDowell the Travelling Representative
for Campus Crusade for Christ
International, in his book — "Evidence that Demands a Verdict,"
actually uses his new inspired (by the "Holy Ghost"?) conundrum1 for his chapter 7 — "TRILEMMA -Lord, Liar or Lunatic?"
You have now guessed it! The three L's! He wants his readers to answer
whether Jesus Christ is your LORD (God), or was he a LIAR,
or a LUNATIC? Very ingenious, you will agree! No Muslim could
utter that Jesus Christ was a liar, or a lunatic: then what? Its more
than any dilemma! It’s actually blasphemy of the highest degree. But he
is blinded by his preconceived notions. Roger Bacon, the philosopher
who was bom too soon, rightly said: "IT IS EASIER FOR A MAN TO BURN
DOWN HIS OWN HOUSE THAN TO GET RID OF HIS PREJUDICES."
puzzling problem or question admitting of no satisfactory solution.
WISDOM OF THE CHILD
To say of any man that he is
God, the "begotten" son of God, or that his father is God; is
not an honour but an insult. A French peasant understood this
distinction better than the millions of erudite Christian scholars
walking the earth today.
It is reputed that Louis XV,
King of France was a very lecherous person. No woman was safe from his
debaucheries. After his death, when his son was well settled on the
throne, a rumour spread around Paris that an exact duplicate of the
young king was seen roaming about the capital. The King was naturally
intrigued to see his double. It did not take the King’s men long to
have the rustic from the countryside presented before the King. The
King was amused by the stark resemblance to himself and his late
father. He was tickled to have a dig at the poor farmer. He politely
asked. "Did your mother ever visit Paris during my father's reign?" "No!"
the rustic replied, "But my father did!" This was a death-knell
for the King, but he had asked for it!
DONT GO TO EXTREMES
The rank hatred of the Jews
which lead them to slander Jesus and his mother is bad, and the over
infatuation of the Christians for Christ is also bad. Muhummed (pbuh)
the Messenger of God condemned both these extremes, and elevated Jesus
(pbuh) to his true status, as the Messiah, a great prophet and
reformer. Love him, respect him, revere him, follow him; but do not
worship him! For worship is due to God alone, the Father in heaven:
This is true glorification —
shall glorify me!"
Historically, morally and
prophetically, Muhummed (pbuh) the last and Final Messenger of God,
"The Spirit of Truth," is the only one to guide mankind into all truth.
He is pre-eminently the Natural Successor to Christ.
Your further inquiries,
comments and criticisms are welcome. Don’t just sit there, for the sake
of God, act now!
(Servant of Islam)
Dear reader, it has been
suggested that some Christian propagandists might lure you from your
exposition of the preceding pages, by dangling before you the
a Jewish festival day celebrated on the Fiftieth day after the
beginning of corn harvesting. The Jews gathered in Jerusalem from far
and wide for the feast Peter with "the Eleven"1 together with others were in one place, when suddenly they
heard the roaring of a mighty windstorm in the skies above them where
they were sitting. This electrified the people and they began to "speak
in tongues," in dialects and languages foreign to themselves. Some
marvelled while others mocked, saying, "They're drunk, that's all!" It
reminded them of the "babbling" at Babel (Genesis 11:9).
missionaries contend that that was the fulfilment of what Jesus (pbuh)
had prophecised in John chapters 14, 15 and 16. Astounding as the whole
drama may sound, Peter, the one, the Master had appointed to "feed my
lambs .. . feed my sheep" (John 21: 15-16), rose to defend the
disciples, saying. "These men are not drunk! It's much too early for
that! People don’t get drunk so early in the morning!"
But this is
that which was spoken by the prophet Joel .. 2
(HOLY BIBLE) Acts 2: 16
the fulfilment of the prophecy of the prophet Joel and not of any
predictions of Jesus (pbuh). Christendom believes that Peter was
inspired to record the same. Both obviously tickled by the Holy Ghost!
Not a single word3 is recorded anywhere as to
what these apostles of Christ had babbled or murmured on Pentecost day,
yet as to the Comforter, he was to guide mankind "into all Truth!"
Proving once again that the Comforter is not the Holy Ghost!
"The Eleven" (Acts 2: 14). No Bible commentator dare discuss as to who
these eleven were, because Judas the traitor was long since dead. The
Holy Ghost failed to inform Luke. That at best there could only be ten
beside Peter and not eleven!
"Prophet Joel:" In "The New English Bible." published by The Bible
Societies in association with the Oxford University Press in their
fourteenth impression of 1984, expunged the name JOEL, without an
apology. He was too insignificant (?) a prophet, having written only
two pages in a thousand of the Bible. If Christendom can edit out names
of their own prophets, what will they not do to names like Ishmael and
On the contrary, hear what Muhummed (pbuh) the Comforter uttered in his
trances in fulfilment of the prophecies. See The Holy Qur’an online.
*Dr Maurice Bucaille, the French author of the book "Bible,
the Quran and Science"; wrote a sub-chapter entitled "Jesus's Last
Dialogues. The Paraclete of John's Gospel". He questions the notion of
the comforter being the Holy Ghost. He does not set out to prove that
the Comforter was any specific historical person.But he rules out the
possibility of it being a Ghost; or anything else than a man. The
chapter is very small, and it is worth reading as a post-conclusion to
this great book by Ahmed Deedat.
