In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

﴾ Christ the son of Mary was no more than an apostle; many were the
apostles that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth.
They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how Allah doth make His signs
clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!
﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (5:75)

Innocence
of Jesus Christ the Son of Mary
Peace be upon him and his
Virgin Honest Mother

Written by the Islamic Scholar:


Abu Hamed
Introduction
All praise be to Allah the One and Only; the Eternal, Absolute; He
begetteth not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him. Peace be
upon the Messengers of Allah and on the Seal of all the Prophets of Allah
the Prophet Muhammad 1 , his family, companions, and followers.

Allah tells us the story of Adam 2 in the Noble Qur’an:

﴾ Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on
earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief
therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify
Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not." (30) And He
taught Adam the nature of all things; then He placed them before the
angels, and said: "Tell me the nature of these if ye are right." (31) They
said: "Glory to Thee, of knowledge We have none, save what Thou Hast
taught us: In truth it is Thou Who art perfect in knowledge and wisdom."
(32) He said: "O Adam! Tell them their natures." When he had told them,
Allah said: "Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth,
and I know what ye reveal and what ye conceal?" (33) And behold, We
said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam" and they bowed down. Not so
Iblis: he refused and was haughty: He was of those who reject Faith. (34)
We said: "O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden; and eat of the
bountiful things therein as (where and when) ye will; but approach not
this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression." (35) Then did Satan
make them slip from the (garden), and get them out of the state (of felicity)
in which they had been. We said: "Get ye down, all (ye people), with
enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling-place and your
means of livelihood - for a time. (36) Then learnt Adam from his Lord
words of inspiration, and his Lord Turned towards him; for He is Oft-
Returning, Most Merciful. (37) We said: "Get ye down all from here; and
if, as is sure, there comes to you Guidance from me, whosoever follows My
guidance, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (38) “But those
who reject Faith and belie Our Signs, they shall be companions of the
Fire; they shall abide therein”(39)﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an
(2:30-39)

1 These Arabic words stand for peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
2 These Arabic words stand for peace of Allah be upon him.

Allah created Adam to be a vicegerent on earth, taught him the


nature of all things, said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam", let him dwell
in paradise, permitted him and his wife to eat whatever they wanted except
for one tree which he ordered them not to approach. However, Satan
tempted them and they ate from the tree, consequently, Allah ordered them
out of Paradise. Then Allah had mercy on them after Adam had learnt words
of inspiration from his Lord, and ordered him and his descendants to follow
His messengers.

Whenever people are about to get lost, Allah sends a messenger


to remind them of the first covenant of Adam . Some people believe in
Allah and thus survive and win, others disbelieve and thus lose. One
Messenger after the other was sent to his people until finally the Prophet
Muhammad , the seal of prophets, was sent.
The prophet Muhammad came with the final message. The Noble
Qur’an came as a confirmation of the holy scriptures that came before,
trusted in its truthfulness, after the previous holy books have been distorted.
The Noble Qur'an came as a proof that all prophets carried out their
missions in a proper way; this testimony shall be standing until the Day of
Judgment, for Allah promised to guard the Noble Qur'an saving such a holy
book from being distorted or being corrupted by human hands.

﴾We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly
guard it (from corruption) ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (15:9)

﴾To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that
came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what
Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the
Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a
law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a
single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so
strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah. it is He that
will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute; ﴾ Interpretation
of the Noble Qur’an (5: 48)

3
﴾Thus, have We made of you an Ummah (Nation) justly balanced, that ye
might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger Muhammad a
witness over yourselves... ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (2: 143)

The first thing that the Noble Qur’an called for is Monotheism; to
worship Allah the One and Only, to contemplate Allah’s creatures, and to
surrender to Allah, the Lord of all worlds. However, there were lots of
nations that deviated from the Noble Qur’an and the messages of Prophets.
Moreover, the strangest thing is that people like Israelis from whom lots of
prophets came, did not stop worshipping idols throughout ages as it is
mentioned in the Old Testament.

When Allah sent the Prophet Muhammad to deliver His message


to people, he obeyed Allah, delivered His message and warned the
companions, went to Al-Ta’ef, immigrated to Madinah, sent letters to all the
kings beyond Arabia such as "Chosroes" the Emperor of Persia, "Hercules"
the Caesar of the Byzantines and "Muqawqas" the Vicegerent of Egypt, the
prophet Muhammad argued with the Christians of Najran in the best
ways and in most gracious manners, for there is no compulsion in religion as
stated in the Noble Qur’an.

The fast and peaceful spread of Islam affected the followers of other
religions, so they did their best to avoid this effect. There are also now trials
from Christianizing missions and churches to avoid the spread of Islam to
the extent that the Pope of Vatican made it a must that all followers of
Christianity, wherever they are whatever they follow, should mislead
Muslims and make them stray from Islam (Vatican’s Book – Islam. P. 9).
The Christian raid against Islam started centuries ago; Christians sent lots of
missions to Africa and Asia, and they collected lots of money for this
purpose. Thus we have to show the reality of Christian beliefs, which the
Noble Qur’an clarified, because Allah says:

﴾Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have
from Allah, but Allah is not unmindful of what ye do! ﴾ Interpretation of
the Noble Qur’an (2: 140)

﴾Those who conceal the clear (Signs) We have sent down, and the
Guidance, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book,-on them

4
shall be Allah.s curse, and the curse of those entitled to curse,- ﴾
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (2: 159)

This book is especially prepared to the Muslims in Africa, Asia and


Europe who are being targeted daily by certain Christian missionaries. After
reading this book the Muslims will know how to respond to the missionaries'
tactics.

This book aims to defend Jesus Christ (Eisa) and his mother the
Virgin honest Mary (Maryam), and disproving what was ascribed to Christ
in the New Testament, especially what Paul claimed about Christ that
he was cursed (Allah curses whoever curses Christ ). Paul says also
that Christ went to Hell (we will deal with these points in the discussion of
crucifixion and redemption belief).

I will defend Jesus Christ (Eisa) because he is one of the prophets of


Islam, and we belong to him more than the liars who claim so.

I will discuss in this research the following issues:

1. The belief of Crucifixion and redemption.


2. The belief of Lord’s Supper.
3. Trinity and Monotheism.
4. Incarnation.
5. Some falsifications that are found in the previous Holy Books.
6. Did the Old Testament prophesy the coming of Jesus Christ the
son of Mary?
7. Some prophecies about the seal of prophets, Muhammad .
8. The awaited Messiah is Prophet Muhammad .
And finally the Conclusion.

May this book be a means for guiding people and proving the chastity
of the Virgin Mary and innocence of Jesus Christ

Attention and Reminder
I would like to say that I quote from the Old Testament and the New
Testament (the "Holy Book" that is so called by the Christians) only to prove
what I say. We should not believe or disbelieve them. We just disbelieve
what is corrupted and distorted or what contradicts the true religion and
which violates the impeccability of the prophets. Also the purpose of
discussing the Holy Book is as Allah says in the Noble Qur’an:

﴾…in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the
Believers may increase in Faith ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an
(74:31).

Christ in the Noble Qur’an
Praise be to Allah, The Unique, The Self-Sufficient Master, Who
begets not, nor was He begotten; and there is none co-equal or comparable
unto Him. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. Preferably, He chose
Muslims for faith upon all races and made them the best nation exposed to
the entire world. I testify the uniqueness of Allah with all obligations that
uniqueness requires, glorify Him as He should be glorified, believe in Him
and His angels, books and messengers, making no distinction between any
of them and associating none as a partner in His worship (May He be
glorified and exalted).

I ask Allah to bless and greet His chosen Messenger (from mankind),
the seal of His messengers and prophets, the master of the descendants of
Adam- Muhammad, who came with guidance and who was sent down
among the unlettered ones to get them out from darkness into light, and
teaching them the Book (this Qur'an, Islamic laws and Islamic
jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of
worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad SAW). And verily, they had been before
in manifest error. May the blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him, his
family, his companions and those who followed his footsteps until the Day
of Judgement.
It is worthy mentioning that a great deal of lies and falsehood were
attributed to Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), to the extent that induces
every believer in Allah and His messengers to deny. For example, it was
mentioned in the present gospels:

1. His roughness “When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him,
“They have no more wine”. Jesus replied to his mother “Woman,
why do you involve me?". (John 2:3)
2. His Description for the non- Israelites as DOGS “The Canaan woman
came and knelt before him. "Lord, help me!" she said. He replied, "It
is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs."
(Matthew 15:25-26)

7
In addition, their claim that Jesus is the son of God or that he
himself is a God. Thus it is a must that we show the reality of Jesus Christ
in the Noble Qur’an which is the truth from Allah.

Verses from the Noble Qur’an about Christ

﴾Relate in the Book (the story of) Mary, when she withdrew from her
family to a place in the East.(16) She placed a screen (to screen herself)
from them; then We sent her our angel, and he appeared before her as a
man in all respects. (17) She said: "I seek refuge from thee to ((Allah))
Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah." (18) He said:
"Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift
of a holy son (19) She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man
has touched me, and I am not unchaste?" (20) He said: "So (it will be):
Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a
Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us':It is a matter (so) decreed." (21) So
she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place. (22) And
the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree: She cried (in
her anguish): "Ah! would that I had died before this! would that I had
been a thing forgotten and out of sight!" (23) But (a voice) cried to her
from beneath the (palm-tree): "Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a
rivulet beneath thee; (24) "And shake towards thyself the trunk of the
palm-tree: It will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee. (25) "So eat and drink
and cool (thine) eye. And if thou dost see any man, say, 'I have vowed a
fast to ((Allah)) Most Gracious, and this day will I enter into not talk with
any human being'" (26) At length she brought the (babe) to her people,
carrying him (in her arms). They said: "O Mary! truly an amazing thing
hast thou brought! (27) "O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of
evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!" (28) But she pointed to the babe.
They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?" (29) He
said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah. He hath given me revelation and
made me a prophet; (30) "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I
be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live; (31)
"(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or
miserable; (32) "So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die,
and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"! (33) Such (was)
Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they
(vainly) dispute. (34) It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He
should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He

8
only says to it, "Be", and it is. (35) Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord:
Him therefore serve ye: this is a Way that is straight.(36)﴾ Interpretation
of the Noble Qur’an (19:16-36)

﴾Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a
Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in
honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those
nearest to Allah. (45)"He shall speak to the people in childhood and in
maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous." (46) She
said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched
me?" He said: "Even so: Allah createth what He willeth: When He hath
decreed a plan, He but saith to it, 'Be,' and it is! (47) "And Allah will
teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel, (48) "And
(appoint him) an apostle to the Children of Israel, (with this message): "'I
have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out
of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes
a bird by Allah.s leave: And I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I
quicken the dead, by Allah.s leave; and I declare to you what ye eat, and
what ye store in your houses. Surely therein is a Sign for you if ye did
believe; (49) "'(I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before
me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (Before) forbidden to you;
I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah, and obey
me. (50) "'It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him.
This is a Way that is straight.'"﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (3:
45:51)

﴾We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of
apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened
him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle
with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye
called impostors, and others ye slay!﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an
(2: 87)

﴾The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the
son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate
what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah.s curse be on them: how
they are deluded away from the Truth! ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble
Qur’an (9:30)

9
﴾They do blaspheme who say: "(Allah) is Christ the son of Mary." But
said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord and your
Lord." Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the
garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be
no one to help. (72) They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a
Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their
word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers
among them (73) Why turn they not to Allah, and seek His forgiveness?
For Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful (74) Christ the son of Mary was
no more than an apostle; many were the apostles that passed away before
him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily)
food. See how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yet see in what
ways they are deluded away from the truth! ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble
Qur’an (5: 72 -75)

﴾The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him


from dust, then said to him: "Be". And he was. ﴾ Interpretation of the
Noble Qur’an (3: 59)

﴾That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the
Messenger of Allah.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it
was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of
doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a
surety they killed him not:- (157) Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself;
and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;- ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an
(4: 157-158)

﴾Say ye: "We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to
Abraham, Isma'il, 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 Allah (in
Islam)." ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (2: 136)

﴾And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I
am the apostle 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 Ahmad." But when he came to them with Clear
Signs, they said, "this is evident sorcery!" ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble
Qur’an (61:6)

10
From the above verses we conclude:

First: Jesus Christ was given birth from Virgin Mary with the
divine word “Be” and she was not an adulteress as the Jews claim.

Second: We, Muslims, believe that Jesus Christ, Son of Mary is


a prophet and a messenger (from Allah) as we believe in all prophets and
messengers of Allah, and we believe that he is one of the Messengers of
strong will and that the Qur’anic image of Jesus Christ is profoundly better
than the Biblical one, as he is held in honor in this world and in the
Hereafter, dutiful to his mother, not harsh to her as the Bible claims, blessed
every where, while it was mentioned in the Bible that he described the Non-
Israelites as dogs.

Third: Christ is innocent of the falsehood saying that he is God,


he is neither a God nor the son of God. But he was created by the Divine
word of being (Be) by which Allah created all His creatures. This is proved
by the repetition of ﴾ He only says to it, "Be", and it is.﴾ seven times in
the Noble Qur’an. Three times of them are about creating Jesus Christ
to answer those who are unable to understand the ability of Allah to create
Christ without a father. Other three times are about doomsday to answer
those who cannot believe that the dead will be resurrected and the seventh
time is about all creatures.

If scientists are able now to get a living creature without a relation


between a male and a female using cloning, isn’t Allah able to create Jesus
Christ and thousands of other creatures without a relation between a
male and a female?

The mighty power of Allah, which is described in The Noble Qur’an


as, "The creation of you all and the resurrection of you all are only as (the
creation and resurrection of) a single person. Verily, Allah is All Hearer,
All Seer" Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an 31:28

Fourth: Jesus Christ was neither crucified nor killed. Had he


been crucified or killed, the Qur’anic verses would have mentioned that, for
there are verses in the Noble Qur’an about Jews who are killers of prophets
﴾As to those who deny the Signs of Allah and in defiance of right, slay the

11
prophets, and slay those who teach just dealing with mankind, announce
to them a grievous penalty.﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (3: 21)

This is also mentioned in the Holy Bible: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem,


you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you” (Matthew 23:37)

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to
you” (Luke 13:34)

There were prophets who were killed by their people and mentioning this
does not affect Islamic beliefs of the Muslims, so if Christ was
crucified, it should have been mentioned in the Noble Qur’an.

In II kings 1,2 Ahaziah the king of Israelites sent fifty soldiers to


arrest Elijah (Elias) who was sitting on a mountain, and when he
prayed a fire came and burned the fifty soldiers and their leader, then Elijah
beat the river of Jordan, so it was divided into two halves, and he walked
with Elisha. While they were walking, a carriage of fire pulled by horses of
fire crossed between them and a whirlwind took Elijah up to heaven. If this
happened to Elijah why then isn’t it believed that maybe the same
thing happened to Christ ? (See also the chapter of “The awaited
Messiah is the Prophet Muhammad ”)

Jesus Christ is also mentioned in the Noble Qur’an: ﴾ O People


of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught
but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle
of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit
proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not
"Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah. Glory be
to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things
in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of
affairs.﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (4: 171)

As we have explained before the meaning of “Word” is the Divine


word of being (Be), like Adam and all humankind and creatures;
inanimate objects, plants, animals, man and angels. The word “Spirit” also
means the same. Allah says about Adam ﴾When I have fashioned
him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in
obeisance unto him. ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (15:29)

12
Jesus Christ was created in the same way like Adam and
all other creatures “Abdullah bin Mas'ud, may Allah be pleased with him,
reported: Allah's Messenger (the Prophet Muhammad) who is the most
truthful (of all the human beings) said: Verily your creation is on this wise.
The constituents of one of you are collected for forty days in his mother's
womb in the form of blood, after which it becomes a clot of blood in
another period of forty days. Then after forty days it becomes a lump of
flesh and Allah sends His angel to breathe life into it”.

Christ was born by the Virgin Mary as it is mentioned in the


Noble Qur’an. His people believed this, because of the miracle that he spoke
when he was still a newly born baby telling them that he was born from a
virgin woman ( Mary) . What is amazing is that this miracle is not
mentioned in the gospels that are currently available !

What is even more strange is that the present gospels can make
anyone feel that Jesus Christ was not born by a virgin woman, but
rather he had a father and siblings. In Matthew and Luke it is said that Jesus
Christ is the son of Joseph the carpenter, the suitor of the Virgin Mary. What
is the importance of mentioning this and Joseph the carpenter had nothing to
do with the birth of Christ ?!

Was it not better to trace back the ancestry of Virgin Mary to prove
that Christ belongs to David’s ancestry?

The following are parts from the Bible about the ancestry of Jesus
Christ “Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their
synagogue, and they were amazed. "Where did this man get this wisdom and
these miraculous powers?" they asked. "Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't
his mother's name Mary, and aren't his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and
Judas?” (Matthew 13:54-55)

“When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to
him, ‘Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been
anxiously searching for you.’”(Luke 2:48)

“Then Jesus' mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent
someone in to call him. A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him,
‘Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.’ ‘Who are my

13
mother and my brothers?’ he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a
circle around him and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers!” (Mark
13:31-34)

Also, Reading the Biblical texts, confusion arises between two persons
named as Jesus the Nazarene. That is because the ancestry of Joseph, the
husband of Mary, mentioned in Luke differs from that in Matthew. Then,
they are two different persons. Consequently, Mary, and Jesus of Matthew
differ from those of Luke.

Note: The meaning of the word “Spirit” (Ruh) in the Noble Qu’an:

Attributing the word “Spirit” to Allah in glorification


﴾ A spirit proceeding from Him﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (4:
171).

The word “Spirit” is recurrent in the Noble Qur’an and the Holy Bible, but
its meaning differs according to the context. It can be God’s blessing, the
spirit of human beings, any invisible thing like the inspiration or prophecy,
breeze, comfort, happiness or joy
e.g. ﴾ And thus have We, by Our Command, sent inspiration to thee﴾
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (42:52)

﴾They ask thee concerning the Spirit (of inspiration). Say: "The Spirit
(cometh) by command of my Lord: of knowledge it is only a little that is
communicated to you, (O men!)"﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an
(17:85)

﴾The Day that the Spirit and the angels will stand forth in ranks﴾
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (78:38) . The word “Spirit” here means
the Angel Gabriel (Jibreel) .

The same meaning can be seen in the Qur’anic verse, "And we have
supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus…." Interpretation of the Noble
Qur’an:2:87, the word “Ruh” here means also the angel, Gabriel , as the
inspiration, revealed with him is holy or gives holiness to the souls.

14
Let us turn to the meaning of “Spirit” in the Holy Book:

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the spirit of the
LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass.” (Asaiah 40:7) “Spirit”
here means breath.
“. . . the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” (Genesis 1:2)
“Spirit” here means wind.
It can also mean the cleverness in doing a profession, as mentioned in
Exodus when talking about the so called Bezalel as it says, "And I have
filled him with the spirit of God, with skill, ability, and knowledge in all
kinds of crafts."[Exodus: 31:3].

Moving another time to the word “Holy Spirit”, which Christians consider
one of the three divine persons of God, we find that it is one of the words
recorded in the Old Testament, but none of the Jews ever claimed that it is
one of their three divine persons of God.

For example prophet David says: “Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.” (Psalm 51:11). For Christians, this means
that David was attired by the Holy Spirit which is God. Was David also a
God? If so, why didn’t Jews know this fact? The phrase “take your Holy
Spirit” according to the Christian logic means that David was putting
on the Holy Spirit which is considered by them God or one third of God
(We seek refuge from Allah from that saying or believing in such). Was
David also incarnating with the Holy Spirit?

Also it is mentioned in Isaiah “Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy
Spirit. So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against
them.” (Isaiah 63:10)

Did the Jews claimed that God have three hypostasis? or have three divine
persons? And why didn’t the Holy Spirit tell them that it is a hypostasis or it
is one of the three divine persons of God that should be worshipped? Or
were they in delusion or have they been left in astray in this regard?

We are not thoroughly examining the texts, in which the “Holy Spirit”
phrase was mentioned, but what we have mentioned can be enough to show
and prove that the “Holy Spirit” phrase has other definitions, that are so far
away from the myth made up by some gods.

15
We hope to have successfully managed to clarify the truth about Jesus Christ
Son of Mary as it was mentioned in the Noble Qur’an: that he is a
human being, a prophet and a messenger (from Allah). We hope we are
witnesses with him and for him in this life before he is questioned about that
in the Hereafter as we are told in the Noble Qur’an, "And (remember) when
Allah will say (on the Day of Resurrection): "O Eisa (Jesus), son of
Maryam (Mary)! Did you say unto men: 'Worship me and my mother as
two gods besides Allah?' "He will say: "Glory be to You! It was not for me
to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would
surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self though I do not
know what is in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the All Knower of all that
is hidden and unseen”.[116] "Never did I say to them aught except what
You (Allah) did command me to say: 'Worship Allah, my Lord and your
Lord.' And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but
when You took me up, You were the Watcher over them, and You are a
Witness to all things. (This is a great admonition and warning to Jesus
Christians of the whole world)”.[117] "If You punish them, they are Your
slaves, and if You forgive them, verily You, only You are the Almighty, the
All Wise".[118]" Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an 5:116-118.

Finally, after we have explained the reality of Christ in the


Noble Qur’an and before we turn to explaining Trinity and Crucifixion, I
would like to ask the following question: what about the previous messages
from Allah before the coming of Christ ? And what about people who
believed in these messages?

The answer is quite clear in the Noble Qur’an: all the nations received
the message of monotheism. Allah says in the Noble Qur’an:

﴾Verily We have sent thee in truth, as a bearer of glad tidings, and


as a warner: and there never was a people, without a warner having lived
among them (in the past)﴾. Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (35:24)

﴾Who receiveth guidance, receiveth it for his own benefit: who


goeth astray doth so to his own loss: No bearer of burdens can bear the
burden of another: nor would We visit with Our Wrath until We had sent
an apostle (to give warning).﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (17:15).

16
It is also mentioned in the Noble Qur’an that all prophets came with
the message of monotheism: ﴾ We sent Noah to his people. He said: "O
my people! worship Allah. ye have no other god but Him. I fear for you
the punishment of a dreadful day!﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (7:
59)

﴾ To the 'Ad people, (We sent) Hud, one of their (own) brethren: He said:
O my people! worship Allah. ye have no other god but Him will ye not fear
((Allah))?﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (7:65)

﴾ To the Thamud people (We sent) Salih, one of their own brethren: He
said: "O my people! worship Allah. ye have no other god but Him. Now
hath come unto you a clear (Sign) from your Lord! This she-camel of
Allah is a Sign unto you: So leave her to graze in Allah.s earth, and let her
come to no harm, or ye shall be seized with a grievous punishment. ﴾
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (7:73)

﴾ To the Madyan people We sent Shu'aib, one of their own brethren: he


said: "O my people! worship Allah. Ye have no other god but Him. Now
hath come unto you a clear (Sign) from your Lord! Give just measure and
weight, nor withhold from the people the things that are their due; and do
no mischief on the earth after it has been set in order: that will be best for
you, if ye have Faith. ﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (7:85)

Monotheism is also mentioned in the Old Testament, in which both


Christians and Jews believe especially when we ignore the myths included.
But Jews now believe that God is for them only, exclusive of any other
nation, and Christians believe that God is three and who does not believe in
this will not be given immortality (i.e. living in Paradise after resurrection).

So what about those who believed in God (Allah) the One and Only before
the existence of Trinity? Did they die without knowing anything but
believing in God (Allah) the One and Only and being rewarded and
punished according to their deeds? This leads to another question: Were
these prophets, whom the Muslims, Christians, and Jews believe in,
misguiding their people in matters of religion?

The truth is that all messengers, peace be upon them, call for
worshipping God (Allah) the One and the Truth, and obeying Him until the
Day of Judgment when everyone will be rewarded or punished according to
their deeds.

17
This is the truth from Allah, and all the religions which believe in idols,
trinity, humans, animals, or inanimate objects are misleading.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) came with the message of Islam to abolish


all these false beliefs armed with proof and logic acceptable to the human
instinct created by Allah.

﴾ to proclaim it over all religion﴾ Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an


(48:28)

Preface
For those who are not acquainted with Christian beliefs, I will give some
basic terms to enable them to understand these beliefs.

1. The Holy Book

It is the book of Christians which they consider an inspiration from God. It


is divided into two main parts:

A) The Old Testament:


It consists of 39 books which start with Mosaic books (the Pentateuch
which is called the Torah in the Noble Qur’an). Those are five books: the
Genesis, the Numbers, the Exodus, the Deuteronomy, and the Leviticus.

Both Christians and Jews believe that these books were revealed to
Moses . The other 34 books are named after some prophets, peace be
upon them, some of whom are mentioned in the Noble Qur’an others are not
such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Joshua etc,. The Samaritans, a group of Jews,
believe in the Pentateuch only. The rest of Jews and Christians believe in all
books of the Old Testament. It is very strange that Day of Judgment is not
mentioned in the Old Testament and that is why there are some Jews who do
not believe in Day of Judgment.

B) The New Testament:


It is Holy for the Christians only. Jews do not believe in it. It consists
of 27 books which start with the four books (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and
John). Those are the four Disciples of Christ who wrote the Bible as they
heard it from him. However there were many differences among these books
because each one wrote what he heard; they also included lots of
falsifications.
Then the rest of the books: Acts and messages attributed to the
Disciples of Christ, most of these books were written by Paul who converted
to Christianity to destroy it. Ha was a fanatic Jew who oppressed Christians;
he claimed that he saw Christ who invited him to Christianity, so he became
a Saint.

19
Paul was the first to call for Trinity. Before this Christianity was a
Monotheistic religion. He claimed that Christ is the son of God and the
Holy spirit is a God as well.

2. The Gospel

It is a book from Allah which He revealed to Jesus , this is the


definition of the Bible according to Muslims.

According to Christians, Christ did not leave any written tenets, but
rather oral ones which his disciple started to write after his death. The Bible
is written by four disciples, each wrote what he had heard from Christ. Thus
Christians believe in four books: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These
books involve the sayings, deeds and miracles of Christ. They are a semi-
biography of Christ. There are lots of differences between them, and some
texts were falsified to serve some Christian beliefs which had been distorted.

3. The Lord God

This word according to Muslims means Allah. But in the Old and New
testaments, it is related to many prophets and persons. It means a teacher or
master e.g. “You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help
both of you speak and will teach you what to do. He will speak to the people
for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to
him.” (Exodus 4:15-16). Allah speaks to Moses about Aaron (PBUH) and
calls Moses God i.e. a teacher or master.
Another example “Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘See, I have made you
like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.’”
(Exodus 7:1). “I said, ‘You are "Gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.’”
(Psalm 82: 6). Here ‘Gods’ are used to refer to Israeli students.

It is clear from the previous examples that the word ‘God’ is used to
refer to many persons, so why do Christians think that Jesus in particular is
really the son of God? One day Jews were about to kill Jesus Christ with
stones and they accused him of being a disbeliever, because he calls himself
‘God’. Jesus Christ replied, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you
are gods'? If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came” (John
10:34) thus Jesus Christ called himself ‘the son of God’ according to this
meaning i.e. a teacher or a master.

20
There are also some parts in the Bible where the word ‘God’ means a
teacher or a master e.g. “When the two disciples heard him say this, they
followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What
do you want?” They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher)” (John 1:37-38)
“They love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them
'Rabbi-Rabbi' ” (Matthew 23:7) ‘Rabbi’ means a teacher.

4. Prophet

For Muslims the word ‘prophet’ is used to refer to those who are
chosen by Allah to guide people. Also, they are the connecting channels
between Allah and people.

But in the Holy Book, the word ‘prophet’ is used to refer to many people
who are not prophets or messengers e.g. “When David had fled and made his
escape, he went to Samuel at Ramah and told him all that Saul had done to
him. Then he and Samuel went to Naioth and stayed there. Word came to
Saul: "David is in Naioth at Ramah"; so he sent men to capture him. But
when they saw a group of prophets prophesying, with Samuel standing
there as their leader, the Spirit of God came upon Saul's men and they also
prophesied. Saul was told about it, and he sent more men, and they
prophesied too. Saul sent men a third time, and they also prophesied.
Finally, he himself left for Ramah and went to the great cistern at Secu. And
he asked, "Where are Samuel and David?" "Over in Naioth at Ramah," they
said. So Saul went to Naioth at Ramah. But the Spirit of God came even
upon him, and he walked along prophesying until he came to Naioth." (1
Samuel 19:18-23). Here the word ‘prophet’ is used to refer ordinary persons.
In the Bible also ‘Caiaphas’ the chief of priests, who prosecuted Christ and
inflicted crucifixion on him, is called a prophet.

5. The Son of God

This word is said about Christ by the Christians as they say that he is a
god, complete in his divinity, born to God before all ages.

But ‘the son of God’ is used in their Holy Book to refer to many persons, so
why is Christ different from them? Why doesn’t anybody claim that these
persons are Gods as well? e.g. “I said, ‘You are "gods"; you are all sons of
the Most High.’” (Psalm 82: 6). Adam is also called ‘the son of God’ e.g.

21
“the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.” (Luke
3:38), and Israel is the eldest son of God “Then say to Pharaoh, 'This is what
the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son,” (Exodus 4:22).

So ‘the son of God’ is used in the Holy Book to refer to many


prophets and ordinary persons, as it was said also to Christ but nobody
claimed that they are real sons of God, or that they are Gods, why do
Christians specify Christ alone by that while disregarding all other
persons?

6. Christ or Messiah (Maseeh)

The Arabic word for Christ is “Maseeh” is someone who is anointed


with special oil or an oily substance by a parson or a king, thus he
becomes a parson or a king himself. This is the original meaning of
the word. Aaron was the first to be anointed to be a priest
“After you put these clothes on your brother Aaron and his sons,
anoint and ordain them. Consecrate them so they may serve me as
priests.” (Exodus 28:41), “Take the anointing oil and anoint him by
pouring it on his head.” (Exodus 29: 7).

There are also examples from the Old Testament for people who were
anointed to be kings “The LORD said to him, "Go back the way you
came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint
Hazael king over Aram. Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over
Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to
succeed you as prophet.” (1 Kings 19:15-16), “Now the day before
Saul came, the LORD had revealed this to Samuel: "About this time
tomorrow I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin. Anoint
him leader over my people Israel; he will deliver my people from the
hand of the Philistines. I have looked upon my people, for their cry
has reached me.” (1 Samuel 9:15-16). David and Solomon were
also anointed to be kings.

To conclude, ‘Christ’ was used to refer to parsons, kings, and


Israelis who have been anointed. The Israeli prophets predicted
the coming of a Christ after them, and Jews were waiting for
him until today. Christians claimed that Jesus Christ the son of
Mary is this awaited Messiah who is predicted in the Old
Testament.

22
But we say that Christ, Jesus, Son of Virgin Mary has never been anointed
by that ointment at all, and that he is not the Messiah that the Old Testament
gave glad tidings of his coming. It will be proven by strong evidence in
chapter eight that the Messiah the Old Testament gave glad tidings of his
coming is our Prophet Muhammad .

Virgin

The word “Virgin” was mentioned in many texts of the Old Testament. For
example it is recorded in Isaiah: "a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and
shall call his name Immanuel.”. Christians claim, on the one hand, that it is a
prophecy of the birth of Christ from Virgin Mary. Reading carefully,
on the other hand, the texts that mentioned the word “virgin” it can be
explicitly figured out that they refer by this word to a town, and it was
considered by authors of the bible as a prophecy for the birth of Christ .

Muslims and Christians believe that the Virgin Mary gave birth to
Christ and that she is a virgin. But the word ‘virgin’ in the
aforementioned text does not refer to the Virgin Mary, for there are
lots of texts where the word ‘virgin’ refers to a city e.g. “He said,
‘No more of your reveling, O Virgin Daughter of Sidon, now
crushed!’ ‘Up, cross over to Cyprus; even there you will find no
rest.’” (Isaiah 23:12) ‘virgin’ here means the city of Sidon, “Go
down, sit in the dust, Virgin Daughter of Babylon.” (Isaiah 47:1)
‘virgin’ here refers to the city of Babylon, “This is the word that the
LORD has spoken against him: ‘The Virgin Daughter of Zion
despises you and mocks you. The Daughter of Jerusalem tosses her
head as you flee.’” (2 Kings 19:21) ‘virgin’ here refers to the place
and its inhabitants, “Speak this word to them: ‘Let my eyes overflow
with tears night and day without ceasing; for my virgin daughter—
my people—has suffered a grievous wound, a crushing blow.’”
(Jeremiah 14:17) ‘virgin’ here means their city, “A most horrible
thing has been done by Virgin Israel.”(Jeremiah 18:13) ‘virgin’
refers to Jerusalem. Thus the word ‘virgin is used many times in the
Old Testament to refer to different Israeli cities.

What is really strange is that the word “virgin” is used in some texts
to refer to a woman whose husband dies after marriage (i.e. a widow.) in

23
spite of the fact that she had lost her virginity: as mentioned in Joel in the
Old Testament, "Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband
of her youth."[Joel: 1:8]
Therefore, the word “virgin” is used to mean a town or a widow; the
question is why the writer of Matthew explained the phrase mentioned in
Isaiah as an oracle that Christ will be born from Virgin Mary. There is a
something in that text that this writer didn’t pay attention to: the child, born
from this virgin will be called Immanuel (meaning "God with us") and
Christ has never carried this name and it is not mentioned in any of the
books of the New Testament that he was called so, but it was mentioned that
it was Joseph the carpenter who named the son of virgin Mary after his birth
“Jesus”.
If the word “virgin” means a town, then Mecca is the most deserving of
that name as no prophet was ever sent out of it before Prophet Muhammad

Redemption

The word ‘redemption’ in the Old Testament means saving Israelis from
capture and oppression by the people who enslaved them. Jews wait
for the redeemer or the Savior who will save them from slavery,
because God has promised to send him. This is mentioned many
times in the Old Testament e.g. Moses says after coming out from
Egypt “In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have
redeemed.” (Exodus 15:13), “Accept this atonement for your people
Israel, whom you have redeemed, O LORD, and do not hold your
people guilty of the blood of an innocent man. And the bloodshed
will be atoned for.” (Deuteronomy 21: 8), “And who is like your
people Israel—the one nation on earth whose God went out to
redeem a people for himself, and to make a name for yourself, and to
perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations from
before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt?” (1
Chronicles 17:21), “His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy
Spirit and prophesied: ‘Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,
because he has come and has redeemed his people.’” (Luke 1:67-68).

It is clear from these texts that ‘redeemer’ is the person whom they
await to save them from slavery and humiliation. Christians believe

24
that this means that God will come as a human being and will be
crucified to redeem their sins. They proved this by the
aforementioned texts from the Old Testament and said that these
texts are predictions of the coming of Jesus who will be sacrificed
for their sins.

But this is very strange, because in the Old Testament there is nothing
about Day of Judgment or punishment and reward. So what is the
need for someone to redeem their sins if there is no Day of
Judgment? It is mentioned in Luke that Christians themselves
believed that Christ will save the Israelis from humiliation and
slavery, but they were shocked when he was killed and crucified.

Furthermore, two of the twelve Disciples of Christ thought that


redemption meant saving the Israelis from humiliation by Romans.
When they met Christ after Crucifixion (they did not recognize him),
they wanted to tell him what happened “‘What things?’ he asked.
‘About Jesus of Nazareth,’ they replied. ‘He was a prophet, powerful
in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests
and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they
crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going
to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this
took place.” (Luke 24:19-21). This means that even after crucifixion
the Disciples of Christ thought that redemption meant saving
the Israelis from humiliation and slavery.

25
The first Premise:
Defying the Dogma of Crucifixion and Redemption

Christian theology is mainly based upon the dogma of Christ's


crucifixion as a means of redemption for mankind. The second pillar of
Christianity, however, is that of Trinity. That is why all Christian
missionaries emit from these two spots.

The dogma of Crucifixion and Redemption for the Christians

It states that when Adam disobeyed God and ate from the
forbidden tree, he and his descendants became sinners who should be
punished in eternal Hell. They should be punished for the sin of their
father. However, since God is the Just and Merciful, He faced a
problem: for if He punished Adam and his descendants, this
contradicts His being Merciful, and if He does not punish Adam, this
contradicts His being Just. So God kept thinking for thousands of
years till He found the following solution:

To make His son, who is a God as well, be born by a woman from the
descendants of Adam. Thus he became a complete human being,
because she gave birth to him!! And he is a complete God, because
he is the son of God!! He will be infallible, and will live for a long
time with people , will be eating and drinking from what they eat and
drink, and will be enjoying and suffering what they enjoy or suffer.
Then his enemies will kill him very violently by crucifixion. People
who are crucified are damned in the Holy Book. Thus Jesus Christ
bears damn and crucifixion in order to save people. He gets

26
humiliated, slapped, and spitted on as it is mentioned in the Holy
Book!!!

Anyone who does not believe in this belief is a loser, who believes in
it is a winner and will enjoy being with Christ , Messengers and
Saints in Heaven.

That is why Christians cannot believe that Christ was not


crucified as it is mentioned in the Noble Qur’an. Instead, they started
creating doubts and suspicions about the Noble Qur’an and Islam.

Accordingly, it was a must to show the Christians the insincerity of their


dogma of crucifixion answering the knotty questions and demolishing as
well any other false issue claimed without true evidence.

The Dogma of the Crucifixion and Redemption of the Indians

The dogma of Crucifixion and Redemption is not a Christian invention as


it is an ancient belief with which pagan nations were familiar. The scholar
Dwan states in his book "The Myths of Torah, and What is Equivalent for
them in other Religions", pages: (181 -182) that the concept of redemption
through sacrificing one of the gods is an ancient one known to the pagan
Indians, and others. He then provides evidence such as that of "Krishna";
Krishna is the first son, who is the same god Vishnu who has neither a
beginning nor an end. As they further claim, he pitied the earth for its heavy
burden. So, he redeemed mankind sacrificing himself. Dwan mentions that
Mr. Moor has portrayed "Krishna" crucified like he is portrayed in the books
of the Indians: pierced- footed, pierced- handed, and with a human heart
hanging over his garment (p 184).

Hook states in his journey (1/326) that the pagan Indians believe in
the idea the embodiment of one of the gods making a sacrifice out of himself
to redeem mankind.

M. William states in his book Hinduism that the pagan Indians


believes in the Original Sin; it is clear in the prayers they recite which are "I
am guilty, and I commit sins. I am instinctively evil since I was in the womb
of my mother. So, redeem me, Oh, Savior of the sinful." (P. 36) Higin
mentions that Andrade Elicrozius- who was the first European who managed

27
to enter Tibet and Nepal - told him that the god worshipped by the people of
these countries - god Andrawo- was killed by crucifixion and piercing his
nails in order to save mankind from their sins, and that the picture of such
crucifixion exists in their holy books.

The Mexicans worshipped a crucified god whom they call the savior
and the redeemer. Moreover, the inhabitants of the Yucatan worshipped a
god crucified to save them from the punishment of their guilt, and they
called him the son of god. A number of crosses were found with the picture
of this crucified son.

Indeed, there are many other shapes for that dogma that can be found
in Muhammad Tahir El Taneer's The Pagan Dogmas in Christianity. In this
book, the reader would find out that the mentioned dogma has its root in
previous theologies such as that of the Roman, and the Indians, and that such
a belief has nothing to do with Jesus Christ- peace be upon him. If you
would like to approach the truth, you have only to read the Qur'an.

Criticizing the Dogma of Crucifixion and Redemption

Those who believe in crucifixion and redemption think that it is based


on justice and mercy. But if you think about it very carefully, you
will find that it has nothing to do with just or mercy. It is rather very
cruel and unjust.

Here is the proof:

1- God permits Adam everything in heaven and says “‘You are free to
eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of
the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will
surely die.’” (Genesis 2:15-17). This means that Adam did not know
what is good and what is evil before eating from the forbidden tree.
Is not it a must that commissioning should be to a wise man who
knows the good and evil? How is he punished without being ready
for commission? How was he commissioned before knowing the
good and the evil? Does not this contradict justice and mercy on
which the belief of crucifixion and redemption is based?

Adam did not know whether it is good or bad to eat from the tree
“‘You will not surely die,’ the serpent said to the woman.” (Genesis
3:4), “And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one

28
of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out
his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
(Genesis 3:22). Thus the first basis of this belief is not true. Because
commissioning someone who does not know the good and the evil is
unjust and cruel.

Another example is from “The Christian Philosophy of Forgiveness”


by the Christian author Awad Sam’an p. 247. He defends the belief
of crucifixion and redemption and he has an objection about the
responsibility of children who do not know this belief saying: “As
we know that those who do not know the difference between the
good and evil are not responsible people. And since children do not
know the difference between the good and evil, thus they are not
responsible in front of God. Consequently, they are not guilty even if
they commit any sins.”

So the person who cannot distinguish between the good and evil is not
responsible for his sins. Thus this Christian writer affirmed
unintentionally that Adam was not responsible for his deeds
when he was commissioned. Therefore, the basis of the belief of
crucifixion and redemption is nullified.

2- If we suppose that Adam was responsible for his deeds when


he ate from that tree and that he was acquainted with the difference
between good and evil. In spite of that he disobeyed God and ate
from the tree. Was not it better to forgive Adam and not to get him
out from Paradise since he is the only son of God -as the belief of
redemption states?

However, Adam and his wife Eve were thrown out from Paradise “To
Adam he said, ‘Because you listened to your wife and ate from the
tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat of it’, ‘Cursed
is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it
all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.’” (Genesis 3: 17-18).

What guilt did ground commit to be cursed?

29
Can’t you see that when Adam and Eve were thrown out from
Paradise they were punished and that there is no need for redemption
any more? Is not this a double jeopardy?

First, Adam was punished and descended to earth.

Second, the redemption, disobedience and punishment -according to this


belief- continued to be carried by Adam and his descendants
including all mankind before crucifixion, during it, after and till Day
of Judgment. This contradicts justice and mercy, for punishment is
executed twice.

3- If redemption is for all mankind, this will require that all people,
alive or dead, return to Paradise, because redemption saves them
from punishment. But this did not happen, for the dead are still dead
and life continued on earth with all its hardships and commissions.

It is so cruel that punishment was executed twice and people did not
return to Paradise. Were they not forgiven by this redemption?
Instead, disobedience and punishment continued, and crucifixion did
not change anything.

4- If the sin of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
requires that God sacrifices His only son to be crucified in order to
redeem this sin, is not crucifixion itself a series of crimes? The son
of God was crucified after an unfair trial by perjury. He was
whipped, spitted on, stripped, slapped and punched. They put a
crown of thorns on his head, then he was crucified and insulted by
all those who passed him by “Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus
into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers
around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and
then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They
put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked
him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said. They spit on him, and took
the staff and struck him on the head again and again. After they had
mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him.
Then they led him away to crucify him.” (Matthew 27:27-31). Do
not these crimes and sins need a group of Gods and sons of Gods to
be sacrificed? Because according to the belief of crucifixion and
redemption Gods are crucified as a sacrifice.

30
It is really very strange that Adam’s sin is redeemed by a series of
sins. What is stranger is what is mentioned in “The LORD said,
‘What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me
from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the
ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from
your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its
crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.’ Cain
said to the LORD, ‘My punishment is more than I can bear. Today
you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your
presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever
finds me will kill me.’ But the LORD said to him, ‘Not so; if anyone
kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over.’ Then the
LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill
him. So Cain went out from the LORD's presence and lived in the
land of Nod, east of Eden.” (Genesis 4: 10-15). If the one who killed
his brother is punished like this, how come –for God’s sake- those
who killed the innocent son of God be forgiven?!!

5- Assume that a man commits a crime and he should be punished,


and another man was permitted to be punished instead of him. Does
not the redeemer have the right to choose and accept to be punished?
This is the least that can be done to achieve justice. But Jesus Christ
did not choose or accept to be punished instead of Adam and
his descendants “He took Peter, James and John along with him, and
he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. ‘My soul is
overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,’ he said to them.
‘Stay here and keep watch.’ Going a little farther, he fell to the
ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him.
‘Abba, Father,’ he said, ‘everything is possible for you. Take this
cup from me.’” (Mark 14:33-36), “About the ninth hour Jesus
cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’—which
means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew
27:46)

It is quite clear from these texts that Jesus Christ did not like to
drink from this cup. This contradicts justice and mercy, because the crucified
is an innocent man who does not deserve being punished and he does not
accept redemption.

31
6- This is the belief of crucifixion, and redemption which is argued, by its
makers, to be based upon mercy, and justice. They not only humiliated Jesus
Christ , but also cursed him throwing his noble soul into Hell-fire as
Paul states:" Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a
curse himself, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree." "
(Galatians 3:13) Added that it is recorded in Acts (2:31) what its author
claims to be an oracle for the resurrection of Jesus after crucifixion:"
he was not abandoned to Hell, nor did his body see decay."
What sort of defamation is that against Jesus Christ, ? He is regarded
by us- the Muslims- as one of the five "Messengers of strong will", while
those who falsely claim to be his disciples- such as Paul- accursed him
making him in the inferno. It is so puzzling that the descending of Christ in
Hell turned to a firm belief; it is recorded in the book " The Pagan beliefs in
Christianity" under the title of the descending of Jesus Christ into Hell so as
to redeem the tortured that, just as the pagans claim about the descending of
their god's children into Hell so a to redeem the tortured, the Christians do
about the descending of Christ to redeem the tortured as well. It is
mentioned in the Christian doctrines that Jesus became among the dead, and
that on the second day, he rose up from amongst them. Saint Chrisestom in
347 Ad demonstrates:"
No one denies the descending of Christ into Hell, save the disbeliever."
Also, Saint Chlamydeous the Alexandrian said in the beginning of the third
generation after Christ: "Christ preached the people of Hell as he did to the
people of the earth so as to believe in him, and be redeemed wherever they
are. If the God descended to Hell- as the Bible mentions- is that for the Jews
only, or for all people? If that was for all people, all of those who believed in
him are redeemed, and if it was for the nations who admitted him, it is a
calamity for the other nations." Also, Saint Oregon believed in that.
Moreover, Saint Nichodimus mention in his bible the issue of descending,
and the conversation emerged between him, and the chief of the daemons in
chapter fifteen, and seventeen to redeem the people of Hell including
women, men, and children.
The question is, where did the crucified person go after crucifixion? The
Bible says that he was buried among the dead in his grave. However,
Matthew (26:64), before the trial, mentions "From now you will see the son
of man sitting on the right hand of the Lord's will." Also, Matthew (27:38-
44) records that two thieves were crucified beside him, on his right and left,
and that they were mocking him.

32
The same incident is mentioned in another manner in Luke (23:43); it
mentions that one of them was mocking, while the other defending him, so
he said to him: "The truth I tell you, you shall be with me in the Paradise."
So, where did he go after crucifixion? To Paradise? To the grave? On the
right hand of the Lord? Or to Hell?
Can it be deduced that the right hand of the Lord's will is the grave?
We seek refuge from Allah of such a claim, or can it be that Paradise is
Hell?!!
We shall now display some of the incidents of crucifixion which will show
the contradictions about the identity of the crucified person, the truth about
his death, and the period he remained in the grave. As for the identity of the
crucified person, the beginning of the New Testament witnesses the fact that
the identity of Christ was not known to the Jews:
It is recorded in Matthew that one of the twelve disciples of Christ-
namely Judah- went to the priests to take thirty pieces of silver in return for
handing them Christ. However, in the same chapter (48:50): "Judah, the
one who betrayed him, gave them a sign; he said that the man whom I will
kiss is him. So, seize him. So, he moved toward Jesus, and kissed him. Then,
they seized Jesus." This surely means that those who went to arrest him did
not know him.
In Luke (22:66), it is mentioned that the priests asked him during the
trial if he is Christ. So, he said: "If I tell you, you do not believe me. If I ask
you, you do not answer, nor set me free. Then, they asked him if he is the
son of God. So, he said "you say I am him.""
It is clear through Luke's story, and the answers of the crucified person that
they agree with Barnabas, which the Christians do not admit. It is deducted
that the one crucified is Judah the traitor because he answers-as Luke
states- : "you say I am him" Any rational reader deduces that they insisted
that he is Christ, while he says: "If I told you, you do not believe me nor set
me free." It is, then, clear that he insisted on denying that he is not Christ,
while they insist that he is Christ .

What reinforces that Judah disappeared during crucifixion. So, some


Bibles claimed that Judah regretted what he had done. Could it be that
quickly?
There are two contradicting narrations about his disappearance. In Acts
(1:18-19) it is mentioned that Judah bought the field, fell on his face, he was
split from the waist, and his bowels came out. Nevertheless, In Matthew
(27:7-8) it is mentioned that the priests bought the field and that Judah
hanged himself (27:5).

33
The contradiction between the two narrations about the way Judah
died, and who bought the field show that it is but a justification for the
disappearance of Judah by fabricated stories as he was crucified instead of
Jesus Christ who had been saved by Allah.
It is amazing that the gospel of Matthew- following the footsteps of the
authors of the New Testament in their attempts to confirm the incidents they
record using some quotations from the Old Testament to function as
prophecies- mentioned that the incident of buying the potter's field with the
thirty pieces of silver Judas the traitor had taken, is recorded in Jeremiah.
However, Jeremiah includes nothing related to this incident; it was referred
to in Zachariah (11:12-13). This reference; nevertheless, has nothing to do
with the incidents narrated in the gospel of Matthew. The story is concerned
with Prophet Zachariah about his woeful vision. In this vision,
Zachariah is a shepherd who tells them" "If you think it best, give me my
pay; but if not, keep it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord
said to me, "Throw them to the potter"- the handsome price at which they
priced me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver, and threw them into the
house of the Lord to the potter."

Hence, the thirty pieces of silver Judas took as a bribe, but Prophet
Zachariah as a pay. In addition to that, it was Prophet Zachariah
who threw the money to the potter, not Judas as Matthew claims (27:3-9).
Moreover, the gospel of Matthew records some texts that are irrelevant to
the details it mentions about Judas as if they are oracles to the crucifixion.
However, the gospel of Barnabas records some prophecies about the survival
of Jesus and the fall of Judas the traitor in the same trap he sets: "He
who is pregnant with evil, and conceives troubles gives birth to the
disillusionment. He who digs a hole, and scoops it out falls into the pit he
had made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes
down on his own head. I give thanks to the Lord because of his
righteousness." Psalm (7:14-16). Added that Jesus prayed for God not to be
crucified. So, God accepted his prayers causing Judas to fall in the hole he
digs. Also, Acts, which we have mentioned about Judas' death, states: " '
May his place be deserted: let there be no one to dwell in it,' and 'may
another take his place of lordship.' "(Acts: 1:20)

These statements are mentioned in Psalm 109. The one who reads this
psalm deduces that Jesus Christ survived crucifixion, and that the one
sentenced, and crucified is Judas: "Appoint an evil man to oppose him; let an

34
accuser stand at the right hand. When he is tried, let him be found guilty."
Psalm 109(6-7) This is what actually happened in the trial of the crucified
person before the Jewish council. The characteristics do not apply but on
Judas, or else, the trial would have been for Jesus who (does not) deserve all
these evil accusations of which he is entirely innocent.
The psalm then continues: " O sovereign Lord, deal well with me for your
name's sake out of the goodness of your love, deliver......O Lord my God;
save me in accordance with your love.....With my mouth I will greatly extol
my Lord; in the great throng I will praise him. For he stands at the right hand
of the needy one, to save his life from those who condemn him" Psalm109
(21-31)
It is then clear through Psalm 109 that Jesus was saved from
crucifixion, and that Judas Iscariot is the one Crucified. That is also clear
through what are considered prophecies for the crucifixion of Judas, not
Jesus .
We- Muslims- are certain that Jesus was not crucified as the
Noble Qur'an states. This Qur'an was revealed to the seal of prophets
Muhammad whose miracles exceeded all the prophets'. These miracles,
however, were not as genius as the miracle of the Noble Qur'an that
enlightened the Muslims' hearts, minds, and souls with no need for another
miracle. The Noble Qur'an states "They had not killed him, nor crucified
him, but his resemblance was put over another man." Interpretation of the
Noble Qur’an (4:157). The criticism mentioned here on the dogma of
crucifixion, and the analyses of the Old, and New Testaments aim only to
reinforce the belief of those who believe in Allah, and show the right path to
the Jews, and Christians as stated in the Noble Qur'an.

7- There was an objection by a European scientist that the crucified


did not die on the cross, but rather he lost consciousness. Because he was
injured in his hands and feet only and this does not kill, besides he stayed on
the cross for three hours only according to the Bible and he can stay alive
more than this on the cross. In addition, when he was injured by the spear he
bled which indicates that he was still alive.

But it was not Jesus Christ who was crucified, it was rather
Judas Iscariot the traitor and according to the previous objection Judas the
traitor did not die on the cross. All these contradictions and problems
concerning crucifixion show that this belief is falsified.

35
8- We are still speaking about the incidents of crucifixion: It is stated
in Matthew “He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a
miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet
Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge
fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the
earth.” (Matthew 12:39-40), “It was Preparation Day (that is, the day before
the Sabbath). So as evening approached, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent
member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God,
went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body. Pilate was surprised to hear
that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus
had already died. When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave
the body to Joseph. So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body,
wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he
rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.” (Mark 15:42-46). Thus the
time of burial was on Friday after sunset. “After the Sabbath, at dawn on the
first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at
the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came
down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on
it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.
The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are
looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he
said. Come and see the place where he lay.’” (Matthew 28: 1-6). In (John
20:11-18) Mary Magdalene went to Jesus’ grave at dawn before sunrise and
found that its cover was moved.

It is clear from the previous texts that the crucified stayed in grave on
Saturday only, because the two women went to grave on Sunday at dawn
and they did not found him. So it is probable that he got out from grave
before their coming according to their testimony. This means that the
crucified stayed in grave two nights and one day not three days and three
nights. Consequently, either the prophecy or the incidents are not true.

The incidents mentioned about the resurrection of Christ among


the dead indicate that he was not crucified and that he appeared after
crucifixion hiding from Jews and it is Judas who was crucified. This
explains the disappearance of Judas Iscariot during the crucifixion because
he was on the cross.

36
9- Assuming that the belief of crucifixion and redemption is true, how
long does the punishment for disobedience of Adam take? God says to
Adam “when you eat of it [the tree of the knowledge of good and evil] you
will surely die.” Is this death everlasting? Or will it last till Day of
Judgment? Or is it for just two nights and a day? If this death is never-
ending, this achieves justice and mercy, but it contradicts all Christian
beliefs such as Trinity, crucifixion and redemption, etc. because the crucified
would be dead forever. If this death is till Day of Judgment, this means that
the crucified would be dead till Day of Judgment. If this death is for two
nights and a day, is it logical that a punishment of two nights and a day
needs a divine sacrifice?!

If anyone were asked to be buried after death for one day and two
nights in order to be forgiven for all his sins, he would definitely
agree, especially if we put aside Paul curses for the crucified and
being in Hell and adopt instead what comes in “For Christ died for
sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to
God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”
(1 Peter 3:18).

Are not all these contradictions about the resurrection of Christ ,


crucifixion and staying in grave for a very short time, etc. not
logical?

10- The Old Testament witnesses so many contradictions between this


dogma, and the texts! Deuteronomy is considered a base for the Jewish and
Christian theologies. Jesus , in the gospel of Matthew (5:17), announces
that he never came to abolish the Law of the prophets, but to fulfill them. It
is stated in Deuteronomy (24:16): "Fathers should not be put to death for
their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his
own sin." Also, it is recorded in Proverbs (21:18) "the wicked become a
ransom for the righteous, and the unfaithful to the upright.", and in Ezekiel
(18:1-9) " the word of the Lord came to me: " what do you people mean by
quoting this proverb about the land of Israel? ' the fathers eat our grapes, and
the children's teeth are set on edge'? As surely as I live, declares the
sovereign Lord, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. For every
living soul belongs to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.
Suppose there is a righteous man who does what is just, and right. He does
not eat at the mountains shrines.....Yet you ask why does not the son share
the guilt of his father?' Since the son has done what is just and right and has

37
been careful to keep my decrees, he will surely live." This is also revealed in
the Holy Qur'an: " Except those who repent and believe (in Islamic
Monotheism), and do righteous deeds, for those, Allah will change their
sins into good deeds, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (25:70)

This is what Ezekiel, Deuteronomy, and the Noble Qur'an agree upon.
However, the dogma of crucifixion necessitates that God is unjust and
unmerciful because he tortured Jesus for a sin not of his made. So, his
torture can not be destined by a God who is the most Just and the most
Merciful. We seek refuge with Allah from such belief.

11- The belief of crucifixion, and Redemption does not only contradict with
the texts of the Bible, but it also abolishes all the divine messages as they all
aim to urge the people to do the good deeds, and avoid sins on the base of
the fair reward. Nevertheless, the belief of salvation claims that Jesus'
crucifixion washed away man's sins. Accordingly, all those who believe in it
shall gain salvation regardless of what they did even if they were
mischievous. This, no doubt, encourages corruption, and spreads mischief.
But if one believes that s\he will certainly be reckoned for all his deeds, he
would be careful to do the good deeds, and avoid sins.
No one dares to say that the master's forgiving for his disobedient slave
contradicts with justice or perfection. Toleration is considered by all to be a
virtue. So, the Christian claim that toleration goes against perfection is
rejected. It is most dazzling that Christians pray for forgiveness as
mentioned in Matthew (6:12) "and forgive us as we forgive those who
wrong us."

Two elements are strange and confusing in this verse:


The first is that they compare God's forgiveness to theirs i.e. they assimilate
God’s forgiveness to their forgiveness.
The second one is that tone of pride which is irrelevant for repentance. This
is also mentioned in Luke (11:4) "And forgives our sins, for we forgive all
who wrong us".

Using this form, they justify the reason of asking God's forgiveness saying
that they forgive all those who wrong them. Do not they deserve forgiveness
if they do not forgive?! Yet, who can forgive all those who wrong him/her?!

38
However they, in accordance with their belief, do not need to ask for
forgiveness because Christ washed away their sins by his crucifixion.
Thus, they can do whatever they wish with no fear of punishment. In fact,
those who embrace such beliefs do not realize how merciful God is. Allah
mentions in the Noble Qur'an:
" Say: "O My slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by
committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily
Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (39:53), and " Those (angels) who bear
the Throne (of Allah) and those around it glorify the praises of their Lord,
and believe in Him, and ask forgiveness for those who believe (in the
Oneness of Allah) (saying): "Our Lord! You comprehend all things in
mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who repent and follow Your Way,
and save them from the torment of the blazing Fire! "Our Lord! And
make them enter the 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) which
you have promised them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their
wives, and their offspring! Verily, You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
"And save them from (the punishment, because of what they did of) the
sins, and whomsoever You save from (the punishment, because of what
they did of) the sins (i.e. excuse them) that Day, him verily, You have
taken into mercy." And that is the supreme success."Interpretation of the
Noble Qur’an (40:7-9)

12- What invalidates the dogma of crucifixion and redemption is to believe


in the Day of Resurrection. The Day of Resurrection was not mentioned in
the first five books of the Old Testament which were revealed to Moses
.The first mentioning comes in Isaiah: 24 around the third century B.C.
It is also scarcely mentioned in the four gospels, but it is mentioned in some
messages such as Romans (2:3):" And reckonest thou this, O man, who
judgest them that practice such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt
escape the judgment of God?"," But after thy hardness and impenitent heart
treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of
the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to
his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory
and honour and immortality, eternal life" (2:5-7), and" For there is no
respect of persons with God." (2:11)

These texts imply that people will be justly judged on Doomsday. Those
who keep on performing good deeds are honored and immortalized in the

39
Hereafter, while the evil doers are discontented and exasperated having the
wrath of God upon them as mentioned before.

In response to such texts we have to consider that Adam only died after
he had repented, and God had forgiven him to give mankind the chance to
perform good deeds and to be rewarded in the Afterlife. Moreover, it shall
be considered that God's law of reward and retribution is and has always
been one and the same for all people including the Israelites. This is crystal
clear to anyone who reads the Old Testament books narrating the history of
the Israelites. This is crystal clear to anyone who reads the Old Testament
that depicts God's severe retribution for committing sins and not
worshipping Him, as well as His forgiveness when they repented. Moreover,
when it is taken into consideration that all people will be judged on The Last
Day:" For those who have done good is the best (reward, i.e. Paradise) and
even more (i.e. having the honour of glancing at the Countenance of
Allah swt) Neither darkness nor dust nor any humiliating disgrace shall
cover their faces. They are the dwellers of Paradise, they will abide therein
forever." Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an 10:26)
i.e. Allah's way of dealing is the same without changing because he the is
Most Just and most Merciful in this world, in Doomsday and in the Afterlife:
it is mentioned in the Noble Qur’an ( …. So no change will you find in
Allah's way of dealing, and no turning off will you find in Allah's way of
dealing). Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (35:43)
We have to wonder what changes the dogma of Crucifixion and Redemption
brought about?! The answer is an absolute nothing.

Accordingly, what Christians assume about incarnation of the word,


Trinity, Crucifixion and Redemption has no religious or logical basis.

13- Christians who embrace the dogma of crucifixion and redemption claim
that Jesus Christ was sacrificed for the sake of humanity in order for their
sins to be forgiven; the first of which is their father Adam's and which
was inherited by his descendants. They further claim that all this happened
because of God's love for mankind, and that is why he sacrificed his only
child. There are two narrations dealing with this respect:

First story: it is a dialogue in the New Testament between Christ and


a Canaanite woman “Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of
Tyre and Sidon. A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying

40
out, ‘Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering
terribly from demon-possession.’ Jesus did not answer a word. So his
disciples came to him and urged him, ‘Send her away, for she keeps crying
out after us.’ He answered, ‘I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.’ The
woman came and knelt before him. ‘Lord, help me!’ she said. He replied, ‘It
is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs.’ ‘Yes, Lord,’
she said, ‘but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters'
table.’ Then Jesus answered, ‘Woman, you have great faith! Your request is
granted.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.” (Matthew
15:21-28).

It becomes clear from this dialogue that:

The message of Christ was limited and directed to Israelis only. What
confirms this is what Christ said to his disciples when he sent them
to Gospel “These twelve Jesus sent out with the following
instructions: ‘Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the
Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.’” (Matthew 10:5-6).
All mankind except Israelis, according to Christ (oft he Holy Book) in this
dialogue , are dogs. He also calls this Canaanite woman a dog,
because she does not belong to the Israelis whom he calls the
children.
At the very beginning Christ was unwilling to help that Canaanite woman
and heal her daughter.

This leaves us wondering how the believers of the dogma of crucifixion


and redemption could imagine that such person, who had a limited
message confined only to the Israelites, who admitted that he was sent for
them only, who despised and depicted the other people as dogs, and who
refused to give little help to a woman, can simply accept to be sacrificed
for the sake of humanity?! How would a prophet whom they claim to be
God's Son commit such deeds?!

We, Muslims, reject the Bible's bad picture of Jesus Christ who, on
the other hand, Jesus Christ was depicted and praised through
Allah's words in the Noble Qur'an as" And He has made me blessed
wheresoever I be, and has enjoined on me Salat (prayer), and Zakat
(obligatory charity), as long as I live." Interpretation of the Noble
Qur’an 19:31

41
Second story: It is from the Old Testament. It is about Samson “But he said
to me, ‘You will conceive and give birth to a son. Now then, drink
no wine or other fermented drink and do not eat anything unclean,
because the boy will be a Nazirite of God from birth until the day of
his death.’” (Judges 16:7), “So he told her everything. ‘No razor has
ever been used on my head,’ he said, ‘because I have been a Nazirite
set apart to God since birth. If my head were shaved, my strength
would leave me, and I would become as weak as any other man.’”
(Judges 16:17), “The woman gave birth to a boy and named him
Samson. He grew and the LORD blessed him, and the Spirit of the
LORD began to stir him” (Judges 13:24-25).

It is obvious from the previous texts that Samson was blessed by God, and
God’s spirit stirs him.

Here is another story of Samson. The story in brief is that a lion cub
came roaring towards him. The spirit of the Lord came upon him in
power and so he tore the lion cub apart with his bare hands like a goat.
Some time later, he returned to the same place and saw the lion's carcass
with a swarm of bees and some honey inside it. He scooped out some
honey and ate it. Then, he told the thirty Palestinians this story as a
riddle. He promised to give them thirty changes of garment in case they
answered, and in case they did not, they should be the ones to give him
another thirty. The riddle was: out of the eater, something to eat; out of
the strong, something sweet. When they could not solve it, they made
Samson's wife coax him to tell her the answer and so they gave him the
answer. Their answer was: what is sweeter than honey? What is stronger
than a lion?

The end of the story was that the spirit of God came upon him in
power. He went down to Ashkelon, slew thirty of their men, took their
spoil and gave their clothes to those who had explained the riddle (Judges
14:19). This very story is recorded here because the main character,
Samson, is said in their Holy Book to be blessed by God and that God's
spirit came upon him in power.

The question, then, that comes to light to those who believe in


Crucifixion and Redemption: if God and His spirit caused the death of
some people as a result of others' explanation of a riddle, would He

42
sacrifice His Son for the sake of these people who, as they claim,
inherited Adam's sin?! Did God's spirit which made Samson kill and burn
and which is cruel and unfair suddenly find out that the Son had to be
sacrificed for the humanity out of justice and mercy?!

14- We return to Crucifixion and Redemption

In John (17:3-4) some of Christ's words to his disciples- before the


crucifixion and before Judah Iscariot had come- were "And this is life
eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the
work which thou gavest me to do."

Jesus Christ's last words to his disciples demonstrate that he believes


in the oneness of God and that he is but His messenger. Muslims also
believe is the messenger of Allah and bear witness that none has the right
to be worshipped but Allah, and that Muhammad is His messenger.

These words from John: 17 are mentioned here to show that Christ's
last words were that he delivered the message and completed the
mission to which he was assigned by God. This mission was completed
before the incident of crucifixion which happened to Judah Iscariot.

Christ (peace be upon him) had not come to the world to be crucified but
to accomplish a divine mission, and he did. The phrase " I have finished
the work which thou gavest me to do" demolishes the whole dogma of
crucifixion and redemption.

15- The most surprising and peculiar fact about this creed of crucifixion
and redemption is that Allah is the one who created Adam and
commanded him not to eat from the tree. He is also the One who decided
on the penalty. It is He who passed His divine laws to His messengers in
order to reward people for their deeds. Yet, according to the dogma of
crucifixion and redemption, He deserved retribution (Exalted be He). So
it is He who suffered from the penalty as if He penalized Himself.

Those who believe in this dogma surprisingly had confidence in the


misleading sentence, "For God so loved the world He gave His only
begotten son so that everyone who believes in that begotten child may
not perish, but have eternal life." It is obvious that they do not realize

43
how forgiving and just God is. They even did not respect God's
Exaltedness. Therefore, they considered it natural to be made fun of, spit
on, and even cursed (Exalted be He). They also took this sentence as an
excuse to perform whatsoever deed they wish believing that Christ
washed away their sins.

16- As for their claim about this dogma having special prophecies we say
that it is based on mere falsifications. Besides, if some of the texts they
mentioned were applied, it would be found out that they were against their
beliefs, as mentioned before in the sixth text concerning the disappearance
and death of Judas Iscariot.

Some books of the Bible became farcical in order to match some prophecies
with their stories. One of these is the prophecy of Christ entering
Jerusalem on a donkey or a colt. What is even more surprising is that a
special text was made up about bringing the donkey so that the prophecy is
fulfilled. Christ sent his disciples to a certain place to untie the donkey and
bring it to him to ride. Thus, the prophecy proves to be true. This story is
mentioned in Mathew (21:2):" then sent Jesus two disciples saying unto
them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an
ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me." This took
place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet who said" Rejoice greatly, O
Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to
you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a
colt, the foal of a donkey ". In Mark (11:2, 4) it is mentioned as a colt only.
These texts refer to what is in Zachariah (9:9) about the King of Zion. The
whole book mentions stories about the wars between the Israelites and other
nations.

If the dogma of Crucifixion and Redemption is that contradictory,


unreasonable, against Islamic law, and full of flaws, how did it prevail and
predominate the true monotheistic religion Christ was sent with?!
The answer is that it is a pagan belief. Some scholars from the west
whose minds reject such beliefs proved this fact true. Mohamed Taher El-
Taneer's book "Pagan Beliefs in Christianity" summed all this up. A further
proof is the picture of the crucified Krishna, the Indians' savior, and next to

44
it is that of the crucified person in Christianity. It is clearly shown how
identical they both are.

45
17- In conclusion, when it is taken into consideration how the dogma of
Crucifixion and Redemption is misleading and contradicts the main duty
of messengers and the texts in which those who embrace it believe, and
how false the pillars it is based on are, it is shown that it defies Man's
existence and his succession on earth, which are based on carrying out
God's demands in order for good and happiness to prevail in this world as
well as in the Afterlife.

As a commentary on this dogma, Mr. Mohamed Rasheed Reda, the


author of "El-Manar Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an" writes: Man's
salvation in the Afterlife and his attaining eternal happiness and comfort
depend on purifying himself by abandoning false pagan beliefs and
immortal deeds so that he would get rid of evil from his soul and would
be able to do righteous deeds. Doing the opposite of all that means Man's
damnation as Allah states in the Noble Qur'an 91:7-10:" And by Nafs
(Adam or a person or a soul, etc.), and Him Who perfected him in
proportion; Then He showed him what is wrong for him and what is
right for him; Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (i.e. obeys
and performs all that Allah ordered, by following the true Faith of
Islamic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds). And indeed
he fails who corrupts his ownself (i.e. disobeys what Allah has ordered
by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism or by following
polytheism, etc. or by doing every kind of evil wicked deeds)."

Allah created Man innately capable of performing evil as well as good


deeds. It is he who can either purify or corrupt himself. The one who has
faith in Islamic monotheism and follows Allah's orders can be purified,
and his place in the Garden of the Afterlife will be maintained. The one
who does not do so and has false superstitious beliefs and performs evil
deeds, corrupts his own self and is destined to go to hell.

To purify oneself does not mean not to commit any sins or misdeeds but
to get rid of evil from soul and heart. Thus, if they did, they would
instantly repent, ask for God's pardon and make up for their sin by
performing a righteous good deed. It is like a housewife who is
responsible for cleaning, sweeping and all the household chores.
Whenever there is a little speck of dust or dirt she is the one to clean it.
Thus, the house is clean most of the time. Even the cleanest house must
sometimes have some dust that is frequently removed. Reward or
retribution depends on the action itself; God burdens not a person beyond

46
his scope. The one who truly purifies himself, has faith and performs
good deeds is blessed by God, while the one who does not, ends up with
the wrath of God, is never blessed, can never intercede with Him in the
Afterlife and cannot be redeemed. Allah states this in the Qur'an in
2:255:"Who is he that can intercede with him without his permission?"
It is mentioned also: "He knows what is before them, and what is
behind them, and they cannot intercede except for him with whom He
is pleased. And they stand in awe for fear of Him." Interpretation of the
Noble Qur’an (21: 28), " And fear the Day (of Judgement) when no
person shall avail another, nor shall compensation be accepted from
him, nor shall intercession be of use to him, nor shall they be helped."
Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (2: 123), and " O you who believe!
Spend of that with which We have provided for you, before a Day
comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor
intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zalimun (wrong-
doers, etc.) " Interpretation of the Noble Qur’an (2:254). This concludes
that it all depends upon man's own choice; Allah states in the Noble
Qur'an 2:261 that" Allah gives manifold increase to whom he pleases."

Are not these Islamic teachings which honor man, and motivate him
to ask for perfection through his faith, devotion and righteous deeds?

Are they not better and more constructive than believing in such a
cruciferous story which is taken from pagan superstitions that neither a
rational man can believe nor a sound heart can trust?

47
The Second Premise: The Eucharist ( the Lord’s Supper)

This dogma means that a crowd of people gather bringing bread and wine,
then one of the priests celebrates mass using the bread and the wine. At the
end of this ceremony, bread is transformed to the flesh of Jesus, and wine to
his blood. Accordingly, whoever tastes the bread or drinks the wine is
blessed by Jesus, for his flesh and blood have become mixed with Jesus’.
This dogma also means that what Christians do is slaying Jesus so as to
wash their sins away. Actually, the various Christian sects adopt different
interpretations for such a dogma:

(1) Catholics and Orthodox believe that Jesus exists in wine and bread by
his two natures: the human and the divine. They believe that Christ indwells
both as a human and as God in the bread and wine.

(2) Protestants believe that only the human nature exists in wine and
bread. It is only his flesh and blood that descend from the sky to the earth,
and there is no existence of his divine nature in wine and bread.

(3) Other Christians of different sects believe that there is neither


existence for his human nor his divine nature, and that the whole ceremony
is a symbolic one.

It is worthy mentioning that this dogma in which a lot of Christians


nowadays believe never existed in the first centuries of Christianity.

Moreover, Christians- until 754 A.C. did not admit it. In fact, the Holy
Council that was held in Constantinople in 754 A.C. agreed that both bread
and wine are only symbols for Jesus, and they are neither his actual blood
nor flesh. However, the Second Council of Nicea -which was held in 788
A.C- criticized the former and stated that Jesus' flesh and blood do exist in
wine and bread.

Thus, this dogma was not known with its current belief for eight centuries
after the claimed death of Jesus ; furthermore, it was unknown until the
revelation of the Noble Qura'n that took place at the beginning of the
seventh century A.C, otherwise the Noble Qur’an would have criticized it
just as the belief of Trinity.

Actually, some Christians do not admit the fact that Jesus exists in wine and
bread. However, the whole ceremony is symbolic for the blessing which is
put in wine and bread. One of these people is Christian author Sherif Awad

48
Sam'an. In his book, The Eucharist he states his concept that this dinner is
only a symbol. He supports his point of view by stating that there are some
Christians, whom he calls "pagan Christians", who renounced their religion
after converting to Christianity. These pagans criticized some Christian
dogmas like Trinity, and Incarnation. However, they did never criticize the
Eucharist and that means that this dogma did not exist at that time, for if it
did exist it would have certainly been harshly criticized.

Sherif Awad Sam'an further says, "Referring back to history, the pagan
scholars who renounced Christianity after embracing it, like King Julianus
who is called the "Disbeliever", criticized Christians harshly because they
(Christians) believe that God is three persons, and that the Jesus is but the
incarnation of God. However they never criticized the Eucharist. Indeed, if
this belief had existed at that time, it would have been harshly criticized
because of these pagans.

Sherif Awad Sam'an also refers to the conferences held in the first five
centuries A.C. these councils discussed many issues concerning Christian
creed: Is Christ a god or a human being? Is the Holy Ghost a god or an
angel……etc? However , they did not discuss the dogma of Eucharist
Actually if it had been known at that time and people had supported different
opinions about it, certainly it have been discussed ; and that happened in the
8th century since the Eucharist was an object of discussion in the Holy
Council of Constantinople in 754 A.C. According to that conference, it was
stated that Christ does not exist, but the whole ceremony is a symbol for his
blessing that overwhelmed bread and wine. However the Council of Nicea
which was held after 34 years in 788 A.C stated that the blood and flesh of
Christ do actually exist, and it is not a symbolic ceremony.

Sherif Awad Sam'an further argues that it is noteworthy that if there was a
belief that Eucharist turns to Christ with both his natures (the divine, and the
human), it would have been discussed in the holy conference of the fifth
century because it is nothing less important than the issues ancient
Christians dealt with in this conference.

If we look carefully at the statements of the priests who lived until the 5th
century, we conclude that they did not absolutely believe whether Eucharist
turns to be Christ's divine, and human natures, or that Christ's flesh and
blood dwell in it. On the contrary, most of them declared that the shift that
takes place - if proper to call it so - is just an abstract transformation. Thus -
the writer further states – "no single sect of Christians believes in the

49
existence of Christ whether literally, or symbolically. The writer also says
that in 754 A.C. the seventh Ecumenical Council in Constantinople declared
that bread, and wine are symbols of Christ ; however, after 34 years, the
Council of Nicea, which was held in 788 A.C directed to exalt paintings, and
sculptures and to abolish the directions of the Conference of
Constantinople . Also, it stated that bread and wine are Christ's blood and
flesh. "

It is easily deduced out of the argument of the Christian scholar that this
dogma did take its present shape only at the end of the eighth century. In
fact, before that, it had not been unanimously agreed - this fact is admitted
by the Christians themselves. Thus, we wonder how such an important and
dangerous belief can be unknown for five centuries until the end of the 8th
century. What about the Christians who died without believing in it?
Moreover, this writer shows that this dogma remains debatable until now,
and many Christians even the writer himself - still doubt its credibility. That
further shows that the Christian dogmas are queer for he says that this
dogma is as queer as that of Trinity, or Incarnation. That means that all their
dogmas are queer according to his statement.

50
A comment on this dogma
(1) Eating from the flesh of Christ and drinking from his blood is not
logical; for no real believer dares to eat of the flesh of his God, and drink of
his blood. If Christians believe that they do so, they commit sins that are
much greater than the Jews' who believe that they only killed Christ without
eating of his flesh nor drinking of his blood. That is what they believe in, but
we as Muslims believe that Christ was neither killed nor crucified. It seems
that if the Jews killed Christ one time, Christians are killing him everyday
eating of his flesh and drinking of his blood.

(2) Christians believe that Christ was killed for washing people's sins. In
other words, Christ was a sacrifice. However, a sacrifice - as stated in the
Bible - is not to be eaten from. Instead, it must be burnt. This point is
stressed in many verses of the Bible; especially in the Old Testament. In
Exodus, 29 there is a mentioning of the bull which the sinful offer as a
sacrifice to get his sins washed up by God, "But burn the bull's flesh, and its
hide, and its offal outside the camp". Many other texts stress the idea that a
sacrifice is to be burnt and not to be eaten from. for instance, in Numbers-
verse 19, it is stated that Moses , was ordered to slaughter a red cow,
and burn- the flesh , blood and skin, for it is a sin offering.

Thus, Christians admit the fact that a sin offering is to be burned and not to
be eaten, so how they eat from the flesh of Christ and drink from his blood
while according to them Jesus was a sin offering ?! They were supposed to
burn the bread that is transformed to the flesh of Jesus, and the wine that is
transformed to his blood if they really believed in such texts.

(3) Christians believe that Christ became a curse, or accursed for the sake
of humanity because they believe that the one who is crucified is accursed."
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for
it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree." ". Galatians(3-13)
Hence, Christ also is accursed! How can they eat an accursed offering?

(4) The priest cuts the bread, which contains the two natures of Christ the
human and the divine. We, then, wonder whether each piece of bread
contains all of Christ, or that Jesus Christ himself is distributed among the
eaters!

51
Considering the first assumption, that means that each morsel of bread
becomes a separate god, so gods become as numerous as the eaters- an
assumption that all Christian deny because of the belief that the divine
nature did never abandon the human one even for one moment. Added to
that is that the divine nature of Christ cannot be divided because a god
cannot yield to a process of division. Then, how can he be divided in each
morsel of bread while he does not?! This is a mere contradiction.

Considering the second assumption that Christ himself is distributed among


the eaters, that means that the eater does not eat the whole of Christ. Also,
the divine nature of Jesus cannot be divided.

(5) We also wonder: Cannot the person who eats a god (i.e. a god dwells
in his belly) be another god? This ironically means that whoever has taken
Eucharist all over ages is a god, which is pure nonsense.

(6) Finally, what will be the end of the food eaten in the Eucharist? Shall
it be passed out of the body with its wastes, so God comes- God forbid- in
such a disgusting shape? Or shall it remain in the belly permanently?

Thus, we can firmly say that the Eucharist is but a heresy modernly made
up; it does not agree with reason nor with their holy texts.

Before we turn the leaf of this chapter, we have to note that issues of
dogma and creed are not only settled by their holy texts, but also by the holy
conferences they hold. A remarkable example of such a fact is what was
published in Al-Ahram newspaper on the 4th of November 1950 publication
number 23377- concerning the ascendance of Virgin Mary to the heavens
with her soul and flesh. The rest shall come…

53
The Third Premise
The Defying of Trinitarianism

Trinity in Orthodox Tradition:

The Christian Trinity claims that God is personified in three different


entities or persons, despite the fact that God is only one. Every person is
considered a god in itself as it includes the theological essence. The three
entities are: The father, the son and the holy spirit- according to the
Christian claim; the father is the source of the son and the Holy Spirit has
emerged from the father. This is the Orthodox believe.

Trinity in Catholic Tradition:

As for the Catholics, the son stems from the father, and the Holy Spirit
stems from the relationship between the father and the son. Though the
father is the origin of the son and the Holy Spirit, it's found that there is no
difference in time between the three entities, as they are eternal.

In fact, this creed is difficult to understand and ambiguous as the


Catholics sometimes speak of three independent gods, then they claim that
it is one god! On other occasions, they claim that the three entities are
features of one god and this conforms to the fact that the one person has
different characteristics; however, this idea inevitably collides with a lot of
their verses which constantly prove that every entity has its own separate
work and its own specialization. It was reported in the Bishop Sargeos'
book that God declared that there are three entities in being, and that they
are neither names nor characteristics because each one has its own
appearance and work.

Accordingly, the creed of the Trinity is ambiguous and unstable, a


distorted idea. Moreover, it does not conform to the explanation of its
promoters. What kind of creed is this?!!

Religion is supposed to be very definite and clear because faith or disbelief


will depend on it. In addition, those who claimed that the three entities
mean features fall into disagreement as they could not specify the aim of
these entities, for some say that the father represents existence, the son
represents wisdom and the Holy Spirit represents life. Other explanation
indicates that the entities refer to three qualities which are the

54
independence of God, His being alive and his wisdom. This difference
makes the idea more difficult to understand, especially after their
persistence in these particular features. Why did they choose existence and
wisdom rather than choosing power, knowledge, hearing or sight?

It is worth mentioning that Christianity in its prime was the religion of


monotheism and Christians believed in one God and that Jesus was a
human being and a messenger from Allah, but the Jewish Paul converted to
Christianity to intrigue its people after having been the enemy of this
religion. His intention behind the conversion to Christianity was to subvert
the fundamentals of this religion from within it. Nevertheless, eventually,
he was considered a saint and he was the one who claimed the divinity of
Christ and injected philosophical ideas into Christianity which caused the
disruption of the religion and its division, as one group of people believed
that Christ is God while another group believed that the Virgin Mary is
God, and so on. See the decision of the sacred convention with the picture
of the Pope Pius XII on his throne concerning the ascendance of Virgin
Mary to the heavens with her soul and flesh.

As a result, the disagreement around the reality of Christ- whether he is a


God or a human being appeared although the majority of people
considered him a human messenger sent from God.

This disagreement continued till the Nicea council gathered in 318 A.C,
and Emperor Constantine interfered and forced the council to declare the
divinity of Christ and that he was sent to atone for the human sins. Many
council members were against this declaration especially the church in
Alexandria which stated that Jesus was human. After that, the matter was
settled and the divinity of Christ was acknowledged.

We notice from the previous discussion that:

1- The Christian belief is progressing. In other words, it was not known


from the very beginning, but it started to develop gradually. The
divinity of Christ was agreed upon in 318 A.C. it is not a religious
decision, but rather a political one, for it is admitted by a holy
congregation under pressure from political authorities.

55
2- The effect of Greek philosophy on this belief and other beliefs is quite
evident. Even the word ‘hypostasis’ is from Greek origin.

3- Christians fail to reconcile Trinity and monotheism. For there are


three separate Gods, each contradicts the other. This becomes obvious
in Christians’ law of faith which they recite: “We believe in one God
Jesus Christ the Son of God the only true God from God the truth . .
we believe in the Holy Spirit, the giver of life, which emanated from
the Father.” It is a very mysterious sentence.

Who is the only God in whom they believe? Is he Jesus Christ the son of
God, or God the Father? And are the son of God, God the father and the
Holy Spirit one thing? If the answer is yes, how can they be one thing
while one is the Father, the second is the son and the third is different
from both of them? And if they are three characteristics of God, how can
God be a father, a son and the Holy Spirit at the same time?

4- God, the most mighty and most gracious, does not mislead people;
the creed of the Trinity did not exist in any other religion before
Christianity and no prophet claimed that there are three Gods. Even
Christ himself did not claim that. Were all people before deciding the
Divinity of Christ in 318 A.C. misled?

It is clear in the Old Testament that God is only one. How can Christians
reconcile the singleness of God in the Old Testament and Trinity? There are
also some texts in the New Testament about the Singleness of God “Jesus
said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your
God, and serve him only’” (Matthew 4:10), “‘The most important one,’
answered Jesus, is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.’”
(Mark 12:29), “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only
true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3). These texts
confirm that God is only one and that Christ is his messenger and
worshipper.

5- We refuted the creed of incarnation and clarified that Christ is only


human and that he called himself the son of man, so the pillars of such
creed are collapsed.

56
6- In the above discussion we have clarified that this dogma is based on
two characteristics: mercy and justice, so who is the merciful and who
is the just, the son or the father or both? If mercy and justice had been
different qualities of different entities, there would have been one who
is stronger than the other. God is one, just, merciful and powerful.
God is distinguished with perfection; He is who there is no similar to
Him " say: if there had been (other) gods with Him, as they say;
behold, they would certainly have sought out a way to the Lord of the
Throne". Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an (17-42).

This creed of crucifixion is rather very cruel and unjust.

7- Some Christians try to clarify the meaning of Trinity by giving an


example of that sun which has light, heat and color and they are all one
thing, each of which has its own characteristics that distinguish it from
the other. This example shows the effect of pagan beliefs and
worshipping the sun and planets. In addition, light, heat and color are not
separate like the three hypostases, but rather they are three different
features of the sun.

Thus there is no reconciliation between Trinity and Monotheism. Trinity


is very mysterious and Christians did their best to clarify it, but they failed.
Any explanation for this belief increases its mysteriousness to the extent that
some Christians said that it is a hypothesis that should not be discussed, but
rather it should be accepted as it is without trying to understand it.

The Indian Belief of Trinity:

As I have mentioned the creed of Crucifixion and Redemption was


influenced by paganism. In addition, pagan beliefs had an impact on the
creed of the Trinity. It is enough to show the reader the picture of the Indian
holy Trinity and Christian holy Trinity which shows that they are three Gods
and not one.

57
58
The Fourth Premise
The Defying of Incarnation
This belief means that God took the shape of a human being and descended
to earth to be crucified for people’s sins. God here turns to be a human being
like water which turns to ice, for ice is water that is changed from liquid to
solid. Incarnation has another explanation: God chose a real human being
and indwelled in him or united with him. This human being is Jesus Christ
the son of Mary.

These two explanations completely differ from one another. The first means
that what appears to people is the real God in the shape of a human being,
whereas the second means that God is inside a real human being who is
Jesus Christ. The question now is which explanation do Christians mean by
Incarnation?

The answer is not easy or simple, because Christian texts include both explanations
e.g. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his
glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and
truth.” (John 1:14). This means that the Word, God the son became a human being
himself (this is the first explanation). Whereas in the Christian law of faith “This is
for us, and for our salvation, He descended from Heaven and incarnated from the
Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary”. This means that God united with the human being
in Virgin Mary (this is the second explanation). How can such a basic belief have two
different explanation.

Incarnation, consequently, could be approached through


different perspectives:

1- That the Word or God the Son (Jesus) has taken a human form and
appeared in a human shape.
2- That God generally or particularly accompanied Jesus just as God does
with all His prophets and messengers. This companionship does not
mean that God is embodied, but He does help and support His prophets
and messengers without identifying with them or being in their bodies.

3- That Incarnation has a special meaning that goes for Jesus Christ only;
a meaning that God accompanied Jesus, identified with him and was
placed in his body (Ascendancy be all to God over that).

59
The first meaning - that God himself appeared in a human figure
without identifying with any body, and that this figure people saw was
nobody but God himself – is totally refused by Christians to be the
meaning of Incarnation, in spite of the verse in the New Testament that
says: "The Word became flesh." The verse implies that the Son, whom
they call the 'word', became or turned out from a divine figure to a human
one. However, Christians refuse God to be that visual figure, for that
body they saw and knew about, that of Jesus, is a body possessing all
human qualities of weaknesses and needs. He - Jesus – eats, drinks, and
feels hungry as mentioned in ( Matthew '4/1-15' ); he worships God
( Mark '1/35' ) and is tempted by Satan when the latter asked him to kneel
down to him in worship: "Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert
to be tempted by the devil ...... Again, the devil took him to a very high
mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their
splendor. 'All this I will give you,' he said, ' if you will bow down and
worship me.' Jesus said to him, 'Away from me, Satan! For it is written:
[Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.]'" Matthew (4/1-10)
It is impossible of course for Satan to ask God to bow down to him in
worship, but that happened only because Jesus looked just as perfect as
any full human figure.

The second meaning, however, is God's companionship to Jesus,


and it could mean the general manner of companionship as God does
with any human being, or the specific one for messengers and prophets; a
companionship that entails support and victory; a companionship
fortified by revelation which is a means of mediation between God and
his prophets.
This meaning, the specific type of companionship, is mentioned in
the Bible more than once, where Jesus is no different than any other
prophet. Among these texts in the Bible is: "The word of Jeremiah ......the
word of the LORD came to him" Jeremiah (1/1-2), so God's word was to
Jeremiah as it was to Jesus. Describing John the Baptist, another verse
says: "for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take
wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit
even from birth." Luke (1/15), and in Luke (4/1), there is another verse
about Jesus related to that one that describes John the Baptist. Also, there
is a verse about Elizabeth - mother of John the Baptist - that says: "...and
Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit." So it was not Jesus who was
filled with the Holy Spirit! Was it John the Baptist then? Or Elizabeth?
Were they also considered Gods by the Christians?

60
From the previous quotations, it is also clear that the Word and
the Holy Spirit , both considered gods by the Christians, are well known
and famous; a matter not restricted only to Jesus as their own Bible
argues.
Moreover, another verse says: "on that day you will realize that
I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you." (John '14/20');
these are the words Jesus said when he was talking to his students. Here,
companionship is clear not to be but the companionship of support and
inspiration or else his students would have all been in Jesus and he would
have been in them as well. That is absolutely impossible and that is what
Christians themselves believe.
Since both the New and Old Testament clarify that the previous
meaning is common among Jesus and others, so Jesus has no
distinctiveness over any other in this point. Why do Christians claim that
only Jesus is God's son rather than others to whom the Bible refers?

The third meaning of Incarnation, which Christians believe in


and do their best to verify, is that Jesus has a special privilege. They
believe that the Son has identified with Jesus and dwelled in his body to
atone for the human sins by being killed and crucified. Furthermore, they
argue that the divine person, or the Son - who was born long before all
ages - had identified with the body born to Virgin Mary; an identification
that is never to be broken; an identification with no mixing, with no
merging, and with no transformation. That means that, the divine part of
Jesus Christ remained as it was and the human part as well regardless of
the occurrence of a kind of identification that goes far beyond our human
perception.
Claiming such an argument, Christians try to petrify our
thinking at this point, since it is beyond our perception, and thus nobody
would face them with the ridiculousness of their claim.
This claim can never be accepted, since the meanings in the
scriptures upon which they depend indicate qualities shared by a number
of people rather than Jesus. That would open the door for others to claim
identity with God, and this goes for the saints in particular; who always
claim to be blessed and filled with the Holy Spirit. Moreover, a great
number of them claim to possess miracles and that God got into their
bodies, along with other similar superstitions.
No doubt, however, as we believe, that God's identification
with humans is something that entails inferiority to God and violates the
rules of divinity, since they compare God to His creation, making Him in

61
need for a body to occupy. All these claims are absolutely no match for
the high rank of Allah, as they could never be applied to God. What is
more, the identification of God with a human, with all that the latter
carries in his bowels of wastes and filth, is something of extreme
absurdity. No believer, who really believes in God's superiority and
uniqueness, would ever claim so.
Besides, Christians see that God identified with Jesus Christ
since he was in his mother's womb, then wasn't Mary more deserving to
be a God too?! This is a question to be asked because it was she who
carried God within her! (Ascendancy be all to God over that.)
Trying to convince themselves of the Incarnation, Christians
quoted verses from the Old Testament clarifying God's incarnation both
in humans and objects, and thus they get to the fact that Incarnation is not
something unusual, as they claim.
For example, there is a verse in the beginning of Genesis that
says: "...and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters" (1/2);
Christians explain this verse saying: that the Spirit of God, after being
connected to a substance they call ' wings', started to hover over the
water. So according to their claim, they incarnate the Spirit of God in the
wings. They also chose a verse, again from Genesis; it claims that God
came to Abraham in a human form with three men, and he , God , rested,
ate, drank and sat, and God does never do so. Eating and drinking require
discharging wastes, and God absolutely does ascend over that.

The Qur'anic refutation to the subject of Jesus' divinity is


revealed in the verse:" Al-Masih, the son of Maryam, was no more than
a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed away before him.
His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily)
food. See how Allah does make His Signs clear to them; yet see in what
ways they are deluded away from the truth!" (Interpretation of the
Noble Qur'an 5:75)
This is a sign from Allah that Jesus does eat and that is why he
cannot be a God, for that who eats is weak and needy, but God is never in
need. Food, in addition, strengthens the body and supports its weakness,
plus, the state of need makes all creation alike - in terms of being
independent and always in need to others - and that is entirely
inconsistent with the high rank of divinity, since God is Self-Sufficient
holding the absolute meaning of perfection. He is never in need and is the
Omni-Rich over all.

62
There is another verse in the Old Testament which mentions
that God was incarnated in the form of a man and when Jacob met him,
Jacob wrestled with God (of course after God turned into the human
form!) what is more surprising is that this incarnated God was beaten
ultimately by Jacob (Genesis 32 ); these verses attribute weakness to
God by making him seem like His creatures, fight with them and even get
beaten by them! All these unacceptable matters can not be attributed to
the God because there is nothing like Him.

In addition to this logically-based defying to the claim of God's


incarnation, the Christian's claim is not worth all these vehement attempts
from their side to authenticate. They argue that the identification
occurred in Jesus so that he would be killed and crucified to atone for the
human sins, yet they believe that it is the human part from God in Jesus
that was crucified not the divine one. So if the divine part of God has
nothing to do with the crucifixion, what is the point of God's incarnation
with Jesus?!

Christians believe that the "Word" is the Son and when he got
into the body of Jesus, it did not separate from God and remained united
with Him; we tell them that the Holy Spirit which is considered one of
the three entities or persons God, when this Holy spirit filled both
Elizabeth and John the Baptist, and others such as Paul, Peter and his
apostles.

There is a verse - indicating the previous meaning - that says:


"While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all
who heard the message." (Acts: 10:4.) That means that the Holy Spirit
came on them but did not separate from God at the same time. That
would also mean that they would all be Gods; no one sane would claim
that, nor do the Christians themselves.

We can refute that by saying that due to this situation, the


apostles of Peter inevitably became equivalent to Jesus, since they were
filled with God and united with him through the Holy Spirit. Thus they
would be Gods! (We seek Gods forgiveness and refuge.)

Furthermore, the expression (son of God) is common in both


the Old and the New Testament and was attributed to a number of people,
angels and prophets. For example, in Exodus (4/22), there is a verse that

63
states: "This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son." Also, in
Job (1:6), another verse mentions: "Now it happened on the day when the
sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord that Satan also
came among them." In Isaiah (64/8), moreover, a verse says: "Yet, O
LORD, you are our Father.", and in Malachi (2/10): "Have we not all one
Father? Did not one God create us?", and finally, in Matthew (6/9): "Our
Father in heaven."
All these previous verses clarify that "son of God" is an
expression that did not belong to Jesus only, but was attributed to many
others. Why do Christians then only specify Jesus out for divinity, and
for being the Son of God rather than others whom this word describes?
Most of all, Jesus himself, more than once in the New
Testament, described himself as "the son of man", so why do they
describe him with what he did not describe himself?!

Their references, nevertheless, when it comes to the person that


incarnated in Jesus, are so contradictory, for they sometimes refer to the
'word' and other times to the Holy Spirit as the doer of the incarnation.
Now there is a question for Christians: If God was in Jesus' body since he
was in his mother's womb, was the divine part growing as the human
one?! This is another point that is very serious, as it once more attributes
to God’s weakness and inferiority which require growing and
development. Another Question is: what was the case with the divine
nature of Jesus when he was circumcised "i.e. some part of his body was
cut."? Does it represent the entire divine nature, and the entire human
nature of Jesus Christ since God is a united whole that can never be
divided?
These are matters of the utmost silliness and what made us
tackle them is the Christians' belief that God got into Jesus. But how did
Christians get this peculiar faith? The Christians did not invent this faith;
it was transferred to them from pagan beliefs held long ago, before
Christianity, by ancient Egyptians and Greeks.
Finally, if Incarnation was connected to Jesus because of his
miraculous birth, one must stop before another character mentioned in
the Bible: Melchizedek. The verse saying: "This Melchizedek was king
of Salem and priest of God Most High ......'king of Salem' means 'king of
peace.' Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginnings
of days or end of life, like the son of God he remains a priest forever."
(Hebrews: 7:1- 6:20) arouses wonder: does that mean that the immortal

64
Melchizedek, who exists with no father or mother, is also God's
incarnation?!
(We seek God's forgiveness and refuge.)

65
The Fifth Premise
Proving the Fabrication of the Old and New Testaments
The Noble Qur'an states in many verses that the people of the Book
falsified and fabricated the books sent to them . Among those verses is, "Do
you (faithful believers) covet that they will believe in your religion inspite
of the fact that a party of them (Jewish rabbis) used to hear the Word of
Allah [the Taurat (Torah)], then they used to change it knowingly after
they understood it?" Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an (2:75)

Allah (exalted be He) says that those people wrote their Holy Books
with their own hands and then claimed that these Holy Books were sent by
God. Allah (exalted be He) says, "Then woe to those who write the Book
with their own hands and then say, "This is from Allah," 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. " Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an (2:79)

Upon reviewing the Old and New Testaments, fabrication was clearly
detected, and the following texts prove this:

1- In Deuteronomy, one of the five books of the Torah which is


supposedly revealed to Moses, it is stated, "And there arose not a
prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face
to face." (Deuteronomy 34:10). This text is undoubtedly falsified,
because if the Torah is revealed to Moses, and the text mentions
Moses’ death, then to who was this text revealed?! It is crystal clear
that this text was written by someone long after Moses' death as
shown in the text.
2- Adding some books to the Testaments is one of the features of
fabrication. There are some books added and recognized by some
cults among others. The Orthodox, on the one hand, recognize the
following books: Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Joshua, Baruch
and Maccabees, while other Christian cults, on the other hand, do not
recognize them on the claim that they have no origin.
3- Another feature of fabrication is omitting some books. One of the
examples is what is stated in Joshua (10:13) for a book called "The
Book Jashar" which is not found in the Holy Book. It is also
mentioned in Kings I (11:41) a book named "The annals of Solomon"
which is also not found in the Holy Book.

66
4- There is also fabrication of some lexical items on purpose as what is
mentioned in Matthew when the author tried to support the idea that
Jesus is the son of God using texts from the Old Testament, which
was there before Christ, prophesying the coming of Christ. The author
of Matthew copied a text from Isaiah saying, "Lo! My child, whom I
have chosen, My darling, in whom it hath well pleased to My soul; I
shall put My spirit on him and he shall tell doom to heathen men.
"(Matthew 12:18). While the original text in Isaiah is, "Behold my
servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighted; I
have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the
Gentiles."(Isaiah 42:1). The author substituted the word "servant" with
the word "child" on purpose to prove his claim.

The real text in Isaiah identify clearly that Jesus is a "servant" of


God.

5- There is also fabrication of meanings to support the dogmas of


Trinity, crucifixion and divinity of Christ. For instance, the word
"God" in the Holy Bible means a teacher or a guide as stated in
Exodus when God says to Moses about Aaron, "And he shall be thy
spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee
instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God."(Exodus
4:16). Moreover, when it is assigned to a person, it also means master
or tutor; "They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being
interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?"(John1:38). The
fabrication here is done intentionally to prove the divinity of Christ
.

6- Fabrication of incidents occurs a lot. For example, Matthew and Luke


are totally different when it comes to the relationship of Joseph the
Carpenter. This diversity would not have occurred unless some or all
books made it up. These differences lead to more than one Josef the
Carpenter, Mary and Jesus which pulls down their creed.

7- Faithless fabrications, or in other words, texts, believe in what


contradicts with faith. Among which is relating fouls and obscenities
to prophets like Noah (peace be upon him) drinking wine and being
naked (Genesis 9:21), Lute committing adultery with his daughters

67
(Genesis 19:30), David committing adultery with the wife of one of
his soldiers and killing him (II Samuel 11:4-6), and Aaron and
Solomon building idols and worshipping them (Exodus 32:2-6, I kings
11:1-6). Would a believer believe that those deeds were carried out by
the chosen prophets of Allah?! If so, then what would we expect of
ordinary humans?! And how could we trust the prophets who commit
such deeds?! There are also commands in the Old Testament
contradicting with faith. For example, it is stated in Deuteronomy that
usury can be collected from non-Jewish people although usury is
forbidden in anyway, then how come Allah allows it in one of the
Heavenly books like the Torah (the Old Testament)?! There are also
some debauched indications in the texts of the Bible; Songs of
Solomon in the Old Testament is an example.

Those were examples of fabrications in the Old and New Testaments. For
further information about this subject, it is recommended to read "Izhar ul-
Haq" (Showing the Truth) by Rahmatullah Al-Hindi.

Finally, the Bible itself confirms its fabrication; as it is stated by


Jeremiah (one of the prophets of Israelites) when he addressed his speech to
the Israelites and said "How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the
LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is
in vain."(Jeremiah 8:8).

This corresponds to what is mentioned in the Noble Qur'an: "Then woe


to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, "This is
from Allah," 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".
Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an (2:79), and "And verily, among them is a
party who distort the Book with their tongues (as they read), so that you
may think it is from the Book, but it is not from the Book, and they say:
"This is from Allah," but it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie against
Allah while they know it." Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an (3:78)

68
The Sixth premise
Did the Old Testament prophesy the coming of Christ
(peace be upon him)?
Christians believe that some texts in the Old Testament prophesied the
coming of Christ . All these texts proved to be untrue. And if they were
true, they would not prove that Jesus Christ is a God or the son of God. If
these texts were read carefully and accurately, they would appear to be
prophesying the coming of prophet Muhammad .

1- In (Psalm 45:3-5) there is a text where David prophesies the


coming of a Prophet after him “Gird your sword upon your side, O
mighty one; clothe yourself with splendor and majesty. In your
majesty ride forth victoriously in behalf of truth, humility and
righteousness; let your right hand display awesome deeds. Let your
sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king's enemies; let the nations
fall beneath your feet.”. This description does not suite Jesus ,
because he did not fight or carry a sword in his life. But it rather suites
Prophet Muhammad who was struggling with all his efforts for
the sake of Allah to apply the truth, humility and righteousness
carrying his sword till many nations submitted to him.
2- One of the texts that Christians claim to be prophesizing the coming
of Jesus is “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one
in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring
justice to the nations.” (Isaiah 42:1), but the word ‘servant’ was
replaced by ‘my son’ in (Matthew 12:18 the Arabic text) to suite the
claim that Christ is the son of God. This can be a prophecy about
Jesus Christ, but if the context in which these words are mentioned is
examined carefully, we will find that these words are about prophet
Muhammad .

As in (Isaiah 42:11) "Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their
voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock
sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains." Again, it is obvious that
these texts exclusively conform to our prophet (peace and blessings of Allah
be upon him) who was a warrior and a struggler in the cause of spreading the
final message. As far as Christ is concerned, he was neither a warrior nor did
he ever fight anyone.

69
(3) Among the texts that the Christians claim to prophesy the coming of
Christ is the one mentioned in Mathew 2:23 as the author states that
there is an indication in the book of the prophets prior to Jesus that a prophet
would be sent who would be Nazarene ( form the town of Nazareth) so the
writer of Mathew declared that Jesus went to Nazareth to fulfill the saying of
the prophets that he would be called Nazarene, and the truth is that this text
does not exist in any of the books of the Old Testament; therefore, this
leaves us facing one of two possibilities:

- The First: That the author of Mathew made up this statement and claimed
that it existed in the Old Testament.

-The Second: That this statement really existed when the author of the
book of Mathew wrote his book then this statement was omitted from the
Old Testament; however, it exists no more in the Holy Book present today,
and this is a proof of the falsification of this book.

(4) Among the texts which the Christians relied upon is the one found in the
book of Joshua [and called my son out of Egypt] Thus, the author of the
book of Mathew grasped this as an opportunity to prove that Christ is the
Son of God and that this context conforms to him and prophesies his
coming, so the author Mathew claimed in (2:13-15): [When they had gone,
an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up", he said "take
the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for
Herod is going to search for the child to kill him. "So he got up, took the
child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed
until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the lord had said through
the prophet: "Out of Egypt I called my son"]. Accordingly, the author for the
book of Mathew considers that Jesus went to Egypt by the means of God's
orders so that the prophecy- mentioned in Joshua – would be realized. In
fact, this is an attempt made by the Christians so as to subjugate the texts to
serve their claims; even though, they do not lend themselves for such
subjugation. For the text as stated in the book of Joshua, says "when Israel
[Jacob (peace be upon him)] was a child I loved him and called my son out
of Egypt". Hence, the statement aims at the descendants of Jacob when
they left Egypt with our prophet Moses and he is one of Jacob's
descendants. Moreover, Joshua speaks of Israelites and their deeds of
corruption and their worshipping of idols. Therefore, this book keeps on
reminding them of the Grace of God as He let them get out of Egypt saving

70
them from their enemy. This statement – as it is- can not apply to Jesus
because – hypothetically speaking- if it had been so, God would have said
[And called my son out of Egypt]. Some may claim that prepositions can
replace each other in Arabic making it possible for "out of" to mean "to", we
respond that this may be possible only in the Arabic version; however, the
English version of the text does not support this interpretation as it states
“And called my son out of Egypt". This leaves only one possible valid
interpretation that it was going out of Egypt and not going into Egypt, worth
mentioning, that Moses is the one who departed from Egypt with the
Jews.

(5) The Christians have also attempted to cite another quotation mentioned
in the Old Testament as a prophecy of the coming of Jesus : [Rejoice
greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king
comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey]. This text appears in the book of Zachariah
(9/9). The author of the book of Mathew has also mentioned that Jesus
(peace be upon him) upon entering Jerusalem, sent two of his students to
bring him a female donkey and a young donkey (foal of a donkey) and rode
them so as to fulfill the prophecy mentioned in the book of Zachariah.
We state, as well, that there is no reason why this should not be a prophecy
foretelling the coming of Jesus (peace be upon him); nevertheless, should we
trace the book of Zachariah which included the quotation, one shall find that
the whole context speaks of the Jews' wishes of returning to the land of
Palestine and their breaking free of the Babylonian captivity that scattered
them and pushed them away from that land. Thus, a quick glance at some of
these texts would reveal that the book speaks of the Jews' wish; for instance,
the following quotation has been stated in the book of Zachariah [Rejoice
greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king
comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
and the war-horses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken.]He
also says: [Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwells with the daughter of
Babylon] and here in this text he is asking the Jews who scattered in
Babylon to return to Palestine. It is also recorded: [Thus said the LORD of
hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the
west country]
As a result, it is clear that all the previous texts refer to the Jews' wishes of
returning to Palestine, so what makes an excerpt from a context oppose its

71
mainstream to prophesy the coming of Jesus? Assuming that each and every
person who entered Jerusalem riding a colt, a foal of a donkey is the target
of the prophecy of the coming of a prophet, then each of them would claim
that he be the one. It is absurd that Christians try twisting the meanings of
the text to prove their claims.

After all that has been said, we say that Christians tried to subdue the
texts of the Old Testament so as to make them applicable to Jesus (peace be
upon him), and made up texts and ascribed them to the Old Testament that
prophesy the coming of Jesus (peace be upon him). They also extracted
quotations out of their context and attempted to falsely claims that
prophesied the coming of Jesus (peace be upon him), or distorted texts that
originally existed in the Old Testament and changed them to confirm to their
beliefs, as they replaced the word "servant" with the word "son".
In reality, this act of the Christians is bizarre, and as a prudent says [Those
who claim they are Christians have tailored a cloak out of the Old Testament
and dressed it to Jesus].

72
The Seventh Premise
The Biblical Prophecies of the Last Prophet
Muhammad
Allah says in the Noble Qur’an that there were prophecies in the Holy Book
about the coming of Prophet Muhammad .
Prophet Muhammad was mentioned in Torah and Bible and was known
by the people of the Book before his birth. ﴾Those who follow the apostle,
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, honour him, help him, and follow the light
which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper.﴾ Interpretation
of the Noble Qur'an (7:157).

One would wonder: are there prophecies concerning our Prophet

Muhammad in the Bible that are found with the Christians nowadays?
Or did the Christians, while perverting their holy books, delete the texts that
contain prophecies concerning Prophet Muhammad (May Allah's blessings
and Peace be upon him)? We do not doubt that the Holy Book, before being
perverted, contained a lot of prophecies that foretell the coming of Prophet
Muhammad (May Allah's blessings and Peace be upon him) and that he was
well-known by his description in the Torah and Bible. Also we were told in
History that the Jews in Medina -before the Prophet’s message was revealed-
were telling glad tidings of the appearance of the last and final Prophet and
they were threatening the tribes of Aws and the khazraj (the two main tribes
in Medina) that they would slay them under his leadership just like the
killing of 'Ad - the people of Prophet Herber (Hud) - and Iram (the city of
the tribe of 'Ad). The noble Qur’an states: "And when there came to them

73
(the Jews), a Book (this Qur'an) from Allah confirming what is with them
[the Torah] although aforetime they had invoked Allah (for coming of
Muhammad) in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then
when there came to them that which they had recognized, they disbelieved
in it. So let the Curse of Allah be on the disbelievers." Interpretation of the
Noble Qur'an (2:89).

After that, it is believed that in spite of all perversions of Jews and


Christians to their holy books and their attempts to delete every text that

may prophesy the coming of Prophet Muhammad , there are still some
texts that they did not pay attention to and that are still present to witness
that the Noble Qur’an is telling the truth. We will mention some of these
texts "in order that the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) may
arrive at a certainty [that this Qur'an is the truth as it agrees with their
holy Books] and the believers may increase in Faith." Interpretation of the
Noble Qur'an: 74:31.

Before mentioning these texts, we would like to state that most of these
prophecies came mentioning either the place of appearance of Islam or the

promise of Allah to the prophet Ishmael (Ismaeel) who is the

grandfather of the Arabs and, consequently, of Prophet Muhammad .


Among these texts:

First : Texts prophesizing the place of appearance of Islam :


It was mentioned in Isaiah (60 : 1-7), "Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.[1] See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His

74
glory appears over you.[2] Nations will come to your light, and kings to the
brightness of your dawn.[3] Lift up your eyes and look about you: All
assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar and your daughters are
carried on the arm.[4] Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will
throb and swell with joy; the wealth of the seas will be brought to you, to
you the riches of the nations will come.[5] Herds of camels will cover your
land, young camels of Midian and Ephah. And all from Sheba will come,
bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord. [6] All
Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
they will be accepted as offerings on my altar, and I will adorn my glorious
temple."[Isaiah:60:1-7].

It is obvious that all these descriptions apply to Mecca, as the houses that

were dwelled by Kedar and Nebaioth, who are the sons of Ishmael , are
the houses of Mecca. Also this text speaks about Mecca to which tribes of
people come during pilgrimage (Hajj) so it is adorned to them and it
proclaims the praises of the Lord as said by pilgrims during Talbeyah to
glorify and praise Allah Almighty.

It is also mentioned in Deuteronomy, "The Lord came from Sinai, and


downed from Se’ir upon us; He shone forth from Mount Paran."
[Deuteronomy: 33:2] Mount Paran is consistently referring to the mountains
of Mecca or the mountains of the Arab peninsula, where prophet Ismaeel

(Ismeel) and his descendants settled. There is also a prophecy here that
the religion of Allah (i.e. Islam) will shine forth from the Arabic peninsula

as it shone before from Sinai by Prophet Moses .

75
There is also another text in Habakkuk, where mount Paran was also
mentioned. This text says: "God came from Teman, the Holy One from
mount Paran." [Habakkuk:3:3]. Here mount Paran was mentioned and we
were told that The Holy One comes from it, and this is a sign of the place

from which the Prophet Muhammad would come.


In Isaiah, there is another text in Isaiah that says, "Sing to the Lord a new
song, His praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and
all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them. [10]Let the desert and
its towns raise their voices, let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let
the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops. [11]
Let them give glory to the Lord and proclaim His praise in the islands. [12]
The Lord will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior He will stir up His
zeal; with a shout He will raise the battle cry and will triumph over His
enemies. [13]." [Isaiah: 42:10-13].

It is obvious that this text is talking about Mecca, which is the land where
Kedar, the son of prophet Ishmael lived and to Mecca people will
come from everywhere for pilgrimage (Hajj) glorifying Allah and uttering
Talbeyah.

Second: Texts prophesizing the coming of a prophet from the


descendents of the prophet Ishmael ,
who is Prophet Muhammad

Among these texts is what is mentioned in [Deuteronomy: 18:18-19], "I


will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brethren; and I
will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I
command him. [18] And whoever will not give heed to my words which he
shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him. [19]".

It is obvious here that this text prophesizes the coming of a prophet after

76
Moses and that prophet is not one of the sons of Israel but from their

BRETHREN, who are the sons of prophet Ishmael (i.e. the Arabs).

Also this text says that this prophet is LIKE Moses, and there is no prophet

like Moses except our Prophet Muhammad as each of them was


born normally and also came with a new Jurisprudence and rules.
Deuteronomy confirms this point of view by saying, "Since then, no prophet
has risen in Israel like Moses." [Deuteronomy: 34:10]. So, this new prophet
is not one of the sons of Israel but from their BRETHREN who are the sons

of prophet Ishmael (i.e. the Arabs ) and this prophet is not Jesus

because Jesus is not like Moses, as he did not come with a new
Jurisprudence and his book was only sermons and glad tidings and having

no new rules, while our Prophet Muhammad came with a new


Jurisprudence that has new rules that cancelled the ones before it.

The Eighth Premise: Explaining That the Messiah or the


Awaited Maseeh is Muhammad
Among the prophesies mentioned in the Old testament more than once, and
which is considered by both the Jews and the Christians the focus of all Old
Testament prophesies, is that foretelling the upcoming of the awaited
Messiah (Maseeh). The Messiah here is not a name for a specific person
such as (Jesus son of Mary, for instance), but a reference to the one God
rubbed with oil. All prophets foretold about his coming. Christians,
however, claim the he is Jesus Christ . It is mentioned that this prophet
will sit on the right hand of the Lord. The Jews believed that he would be of
the descendants of David . Nevertheless, some texts were mentioned in
the Christian gospels in Luke(20:41), Mark(12:35), and Matthew(22:41-46):
"Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a
question, saying, “What do you think of the Christ ( The Messiah)? Whose

77
son is he?” They said to him, “Of David." He said to them, “How then does
David in the Spirit call him Lord, saying ‘The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on
my right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet?’ “If then
David calls him Lord, how is he his son?" No one was able to answer him
a word, neither dared any man from that day forth ask him any more
questions."

This conversation is of extreme importance, as it proves that all the Jews'


claims are wrong (about the awaited Messiah); they thought he was of the
offspring of David , but Jesus told them that David called him Lord or
"my Lord" , as the quotation states, so how can he be his son while David
called him 'my Lord' ?!

This text, on the other hand, proves that the Christians' claims were also
wrong, because the Christians believe that the one meant in the text is Jesus
because he is of the offspring of David. But David can not call Jesus "Lord"
or "my Lord" simply because Jesus is of his offspring.

That is why Barnabas (one of Jesus' disciples, and who has a gospel
carrying his name, and whom the Christians never admit because it proves
that Jesus is only a messenger of Allah) stressed that the Awaited Messiah is
of the offspring of Ishmael, and that is prophet Muhammad (Ahmad) .

Christians can not have the right to claim that Jesus, son of Mary, is the one
meant by the prophesy of the Old Testament, for he is, as mentioned before,
the offspring of David. Moreover, no one can argue that what is meant is the
Divine part of Jesus that is not the offspring of humans, and therefore David
called it "Lord". It is unlikely to claim that, for the Christian scholars
themselves, explaining the first word "Lord" in "Lord said to my Lord", said
it meant God ; the second "Lord" , however, is believed to be the human part
of Jesus, which is the offspring of David, and therefore he (Jesus son of
Mary) cannot be the Messiah.

No one could longer claim that the one sitting on the right hand of God is
Jesus son of Mary, neither by his human nature (for it is the offspring of
David and Jesus denied the Messiah to be so), nor his divine nature (for that
backs up polytheism).

Moreover, we would rather believe, like Barnabas, that the Awaited Messaih
is the offspring of Ishmael , and that he is Muhammad ; this

78
supports what is recorded in Genesis in the Old testament that the Awaited
Messiah is not the offspring of Judah son of Israel. It is recorded in Genesis:
(49/10),: (The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from
between his feet, until Shiloh come, and the gathering of the people).

Thus, we can conclude that after the last prophet of Judah's offspring, then
Shiloh will come ( Shiloh is the awaited Messiah) , as the text says, and
Shiloh is not the offspring of Judah.

All prophets, from Moses to Jesus the son of Mary are the offspring of
Judah, also the prophets who did not come from the offspring of Judah had
never claimed to be the Awaited Messiah including Jesus the son of Mary
according to the above text, also Jesus the son of Mary was the last prophet
from the offspring of Judah.

That is why Barnabas assured that the awaited Messiah is from Ishmael's
offspring and that is Muhammad .

Paul, the Jew and the great enemy of Christianity who only converted to
Christianity to destroy the Christian theology from inside, came with a
hollow message to the Christians –the one to the Galatians. In his message,
Paul violently attacked Barnabas and his Gospel. That sufficiently proves
the existence of Barnabas' Gospel, yet today's Christians deny such a fact.

Paul criticized Barnabas and that can be clear through some points:

1 Through attacking Barnabas, it is clear that Paul believed in the


divinity of Jesus, while Barnabas believe that Jesus is a messenger
from Allah and also his servant.

2 Paul said about his belief : (Am I now trying to win the approval of
men, or of god? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to
please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.) From his message to
the Galantines (1/10)

Paul believed that Barnabas pleased the people on the account of his
faith and religion, and that he said Jesus is God's messenger and his
servant. Paul, on the other hand, wished nothing but pleasing God, as
he claimed, so he contradicted people and said that Jesus is God's son.

The truth is the opposite of what Paul believed. If Barnabas aimed at


pleasing people, who were mostly pagans, he would have said that

79
Jesus is God or God's son, so that he would be in accord with the
Pagan Roman tenets.

2 Paul also criticized Barnabas' belief in former laws, especially the


circumcision precept as he said: "when Peter came to Antioch, I
opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong …. He
used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to drew
back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he was afraid of
those who belonged to the circumcision group. The other Jews joined
him in his hypocrisy, so that the by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was
led astray." His message to the Galatians (2/11-14).

Here he criticized Barnabas's clinging to the laws mentioned in the


Old Testament, among which is circumcision. He further criticized
those who cling to the law, as he said: "All who rely on observing the
law are under a curse." Galatians (3/10).

Paul accursed all who cling to the law or the inspiration of the sons of
Israel in the Old Testament; Jesus , nevertheless, declared frankly
that he stuck to the law and would not change it. Jesus said, in
Matthew's Bible: "Do not think I have come to abolish them but to
fulfill them" Matthew (5/17) So Paul, accordingly, had cursed also
Jesus who clung to the law including circumcision prescribed by
Abraham – Paul apparently forgot that circumcision was an
everlasting covenant with Abraham (Genesis 17/13).

Paul was not ashamed to refuse circumcision openly, as he said:


"Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves to be
circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all." Galatians (5/2)

3 Paul believed, unlike Barnabas, that Jesus was crucified; through his
words it is obvious that there were people who denied crucifixion.
Paul said: "You foolish Galatians! who has bewitched you? Before
your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified."
Galatians (3/1). The text indicates that the Galatians did not believe in
Jesus' crucifixion, like Barnabas, but Paul upbraided them for denying
the crucifixion after seeing Jesus crucified.

4 Paul disagreed with Barnabas; the former believed that the Awaited
Messiah was of the offspring of Ishmael, unlike Barnabas. Paul said:

80
"Tell me, you that desire to be under the law, don’t you listen to the
law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the
handmaid, and one by the free woman. However, the son by the
handmaid was born according to the flesh, but the son by the free
woman was born through promise." Galatians (4/23).

Accordingly, Paul believed that the promised or the awaited Messiah is


not Ishmael the son of the handmaid "Hagar" or not from the
offspring of Ishmael , unlike Barnabas who believed that the awaited
Messiah will be of Ishmael's offspring. Paul vehemently and strongly
assures that the promised Messiah is the son of the free woman "Sarah",
not the handmaid "Hagar"; he is Isaac, for Paul said: "Now we, brothers,
as Isaac was, are children of promise. But as then, he who was born
according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the
Spirit, so also it is now. However what does the Scripture say? “Throw
out the handmaid and her son, for the son of the handmaid will not inherit
with the son of the free woman.”" Galatians (4/30).

This text clarifies the range of the attack of Paul on Ishmael and his
offspring that the awaited Messiah cannot be Ishmael or any of his
offspring. Barnabas believed, however, that Messiah is Ishmael's
offspring and that he is our prophet Muhammad .

These were some spots of differences between Barnabas and Paul. It


is obvious that Barnabas' gospel refuted Paul's ideas, so Paul wrote his
message to the Galatians trying to refute back, and wondering how
people of Antioch abandoned all the gospels for another: Barnabas',
which today Christians deny.

Dr Khalil Sa'ada (Christian writer), who translated the gospel of


Barnabas into Arabic language claimed that Gospel of Barnabas was written
in the Middle Ages, says, "If this gospel had existed in the time of Prophet
Muhammad , Muslims would have retained."

We can actually confirm that the Gospel of Barnabas did exist before
the middle ages because of the following verse:" And (remember) when
'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O Children of Israel! I am

81
the Messenger of Allah unto you confirming the Taurat [(Torah) which
came] before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me,
whose name shall be Ahmad. But when he (Ahmed i.e. Muhammad SAW)
came to them with clear proofs, they said: "This is plain magic.""
(Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an 61:6).

It is also confirmed by the Jewish and Christian scholars who


reverted to Islam. What proves that the Gospel of Barnabas existed
before middle ages that it was mentioned in the book Al-Kashaf
(explanation of the meanings of the Noble Qur'an) for a famous
Muslim writer named Al-Zamakhshary's (died in 528 A.H. - Tenth
century A.C.) Al-Kashaf interpretation of verse 4:157 of the Noble
Qur'an " And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah
'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah," - but
they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Iesa
(Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and
those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain)
knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they
killed him not [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]." It was
mentioned in the interpretation of Al-Kashaf that the hypocrite
traitorous Judas Iscariot who set Christ up was the one who was
crucified instead of Jesus . That is also what was mentioned in Ibn
Kathir's interpretation of the Noble Qur'an and in Barnabas' stories;
this proves that some Christians had copies of this Gospel.

Some Muslims misunderstood that the Awaited Messiah who


was mentioned in the Old Testament is Jesus Christ . Perhaps the
reason of this misconception is the resemblance between the term
"Awaited Messiah" and the name of Jesus Christ " Messiah ", but as
mentioned before, none of the prophecies about the Awaited Messiah
applies to Jesus Christ .

It is worth mentioning here that the people of the Book (the Jews and
the Christians) talk about the Awaited Messiah, they believe that someone
will precede the Messiah and will bring the glad tidings of his coming, as the
Old Testament stated that Elijah (Elias) will come before the Messiah
in Malachi (4:5) " See, I will send you the prophet Elijah " So Elijah will be

82
that person. Jews claim that God elevated Elijah to Heaven alive when the
latter's enemies tried to kill him. Then, in what sense would Elijah come
before the Awaited Messiah? We say that this person who will come before
the Messiah will be a prophet having the spirit and the strength of Elijah or
will be like him. Christians believe that Elijah is John the Baptist i.e. prophet
Yahia in order to justify their claim that the Awaited Messiah is Jesus
Christ himself. So The Christians claimed that Elijah who will come before
Awaited Messiah is John the Baptist and the awaited Messiah is Jesus
Christ.

We believe that this is a complete fabrication and a vain attempt to prove


this claim. It is alleged in some texts of the gospel that Elijah is John the
Baptist as in Mathew (17:10-11): "And his disciples asked him, saying, why
then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? And Jesus answered and
said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say
unto you, That Elijah has come already, and they knew him not, but have
done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man
suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spoke unto them of
John the Baptist." According to this text, the Disciples spontaneously
understood that Christ was talking about John the Baptist without
mentioning his name.

There is another text preceding this one which casts doubts on the whole
text. In verse 11 in the same book there is a text in which Christ says that
John the Baptist is Elijah whose coming is foretold before the coming of the
Awaited Messiah. The fabrication here is very clear because if Christ had
already told the Disciples that John is Elijah in verse 11, why would they ask
him about Elijah again in verse 17?!! This raises doubts about the
truthfulness of one or both of these stories. The story of Christ saying that
John is Elijah is more doubtful because according to the stories of some
gospels, John himself denied being Elijah:" And this is the record of John,
when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, who are
you?
And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And
they asked him, what then? Are you Elijah? And he said, I am not. Are you
that Prophet? And he answered, no. Then said they unto him, who are you?
That we may give an answer to them that sent us. What say you of yourself?

83
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the
way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah. And they which were sent were
of the Pharisees. And they asked him, and said unto him, why do you
baptize then, if you are not that Christ, nor Elijah, neither that Prophet?"
John (1:19-25). Thus John the Baptist denied this claim that he is Elijah, and
John the Baptist was the greatest prophet sent to the Israelis. How come then
his words contradict with what Jesus said that John the Baptist is Elijah who
will come before the Awaited Messiah.?!

We see that the stories that announced that John the Baptist is Elijah were
fabricated and that the gospel's writers: Mathew, Luke and Mark knew that
Elijah must precede the Messiah. As for John who recorded the fourth
gospel, presumably he knew nothing about this and accordingly he
mentioned John's denial of being Elijah who will come before the awaited
Messiah.

We believe that John the Baptist is not Elijah for several reasons:

1-If John the Baptist was the greatest prophet sent to the Jews, he would
certainly know if he was Elijah or not. The prophecy stated that Zechariah
would have a son named John the Baptist:" For he shall be great in the
sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall
be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. And many of
the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go
before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to
the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a
people prepared for the Lord." Luke (1:15-17).

According to this text, it is clear that John the Baptist was a great prophet
before the Lord. Moreover, he was filled through his mother's womb from
the Holy Spirit. Doesn't he know if he was Elijah or not ?! Does not this
mean that he was a God because he was filled with the Holy Ghost, the third
divine figure for Christians?!!! What matters here is that the text signifies
that John the Baptist is represented before the people with Elijah's spirit and
strength and this contradicts with John the Baptist's own confession.

84
2- Elijah's descriptions and miracles were mentioned in the Old
Testament, and they do not apply to John the Baptist (Yahia) . Some
of these descriptions were mentioned in I Kings:
a- It is he who ordered rain to fall. 17/1
b- Crows served him food. 17/6
c- Food and oil were blessed for a long time. 17:8-16
d- He resurrected the dead. 17/22
e- He ate a meal that would make him strong enough to walk for
forty days and forty nights. 19/8
Some of his miracles were also mentioned in II Kings book:
a- Fifty soldiers arrested him, so he prayed to God causing a
fire to breakout and kill them and another fifty people (1:12)
b- While he was walking in Jordan's river after splitting it with
a hit, there came a fire craft pulled by fire horses which
elevated Elijah to Heavens during the storm. (2:11)

We wonder if John the Baptist possessed any of these miracles? The


answer is absolutely in the negative. It has never been narrated that John the
Baptist had such miracles and this is agreed upon by Jews, Christians and
Muslims. Jews and Christians admit that John the Baptist had no miracles.

In addition, Elijah was not arrested or killed. In fact, he killed the


soldiers and was elevated to Heavens during the storm. On the other hand,
John the Baptist was arrested, murdered and his head was cut off and
presented on a plate to "Herod" the dancer as stated in Mathew (14:11).

If these descriptions and miracles did not apply to John the Baptist,
who would they apply to? Who is Elijah who brings the glad tidings of the
coming of the Awaited Messiah? It is believed that all or most of the
descriptions said to be of Elijah apply to Jesus Christ the son of Mary. Jesus
Christ was the one who had miracles like resurrecting the dead and blessing
the food which were attributed to Elijah. He was the one who fasted for forty
days and then became hungry (as stated in the Bible) and he was to be
arrested and crucified according to the stories of the gospels.

The Qura'nic truth states that Allah saved Jesus by elevating him to
Heavens and making one of his enemies look exactly like him to be crucified
instead of him. This Qura'nic description is harmonious with the description

85
Elijah mentioned in the Old Testament: that Elijah was not arrested but a
storm came to burn the soldiers and saved him by being elevated to
Heavens. Consequently, a logical conclusion to this is that Jesus Christ, son
of Mary, was the one who came with the spirit of Elijah to bring the glad
tidings of the coming of the Awaited Messiah or the final prophet. This
confirms with what is mentioned in the Noble Qur'an
"And (remember) when 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said:
"O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah unto you confirming
the Taurat [(Torah) which came] before me, and giving glad tidings of a
Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed. But when he
(Ahmed i.e. Muhammad SAW) came to them with clear proofs, they said:
"This is plain magic.""(Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an 61:6). This in
turn would prove that there is no doubt that Prophet Muhammad is the
Awaited Messiah whose coming was foretold by the sacred books of
Christians and Jews.

The following is a chart comparing between Elias, John the Baptist


and Jesus Christ providing evidence from Christian references:

86

fire horses came and to Herodias on a plate. gazed and a cloud took

(2:11) Acts (1:9)

After this analogy is drawn, is it possible to say that John the Baptist
was the one who came before the Awaited Messiah in the spirit and power
of Elijah? John the Baptist (Yehia ) was never accredited any miracle,
and his life was completely different from Elijah's, especially on the
occasion of killing him, and presenting his head to Herod the dancer.

I do not think that someone would say that John the Baptist came with the
spirit and power of Elijah unless that person is a denier or an unreasonable
contender. The one who came with the spirit and power of Elijah (on
applying the texts of the Old and New Testaments) is Jesus Christ who
was sent to foretell the coming of the Awaited Messiah: Muhammad .

88
The Conclusion
We have presented in detail the Christian creed and elucidated the
corruptions, contradictions, fables and fabrications it contains.
The creed of crucifixion and redemption contradicts the religious texts and
facts that oblige doing good deeds and abstaining from bad ones and which
promise rewarding the obedient and punishing the disobedient. This creed
has destroyed all that, even the reason behind the existence of man on Earth
has been shattered.
The creed of incarnation has reached in its fantasy the extent that it alleged
that a woman encompassed God in her womb to give him birth later
((Glorified and exalted be He)) and that he became a normal man carrying
waste in his intestines like other people. In addition to the various forms that
were mentioned about incarnation and which can be worshipped, according

to their creed, since Jesus Christ was a zygote, a blood clot, then a little
lump of flesh…etc. until he was given birth as a baby whose mother took
care of and cleaned what he excreted. Isn’t he – according to their creed –
their god in all these stages?!!
The creed of Trinity is vague, even to those who preach it. It is an

89
evolutionary creed that contradicts with most of the Biblical texts they hold
in their hand. In all cases, this creed denied what is obligated to Allah (May
He be glorified and exalted) of uniqueness, sublimity, greatness and majesty,
for He is Allah, The One, The Unique, The Self Sufficient, Who begets not
nor was He begotten and there is none co-equal or comparable to Him..

We have elucidated that Jesus Christ, Son of Mary is neither a God


nor a son of God; he is not even the Awaited Messiah. Also we have
mentioned briefly the perversions of the New and Old Testaments. So
whoever wants to know more about that, should refer to the books tackling
this issue.
Finally, we dislike leaving the reader, still bewildered by the corruptions
of these creeds and what we have mentioned refuting it and elucidating its
corruptions. We would like to end here with what obligates glorifying Allah
and describing Him with the required descriptions of Majesty and Beauty.
We will show what Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim mentioned in his book “Guiding
the bewildered to replies on the Jews and Christians”, as he said:
(First)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is Old, One, Unique, Who has no
partner in His dominion, no rival, no opponent, no minister, no advisor, no
helper and no intercessor except under his permission.
(Second)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) has no father, no son, no
comparable unto Him, no relative in any condition , no wife.
(Third)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is Self-Sufficient. He neither eats,
drinks nor needs anything of what His creatures need under any condition.

90
(Fourth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) neither changes nor is he exposed
to any defect like senility, sickness, slumber, sleep, forgetting, regretting,
fear, distress, grief...etc.

(Fifth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) has no comparable unto Him from
His creatures. There is nothing like Him, whether in Himself, His
Characteristics or His deeds.
(Sixth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) does not settle in any of His
creatures nor does any of them settle in Him, as He is completely distinct
from them in Himself and they themselves are distinct from Him.
(Seventh)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is greater than everything. He is the
Most Sublime and Superior over everything. Nothing is above Him at all.
(Eighth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is capable of everything. He is not
such that anything, He wants, escapes Him. He is the doer of what He wants.
(Ninth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is aware of everything. He knows
the unseen and that which is yet more hidden. He knows what was, what is,
what was not and if it was how it should be. Not a leaf falls, but He knows
it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry,

91
but He knows its reality.
(Tenth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The All-Hearer and The All-
Seer. He hears the roar of sounds in different languages in different
requirements. He sees the crawling of the black ant on the stiff rock in the
utter darkness. His hearing surrounds all that can be heard. His seeing
surrounds all that can be seen. His knowledge surrounds all that can be
known. His ability surrounds all that can be done. His will is fulfilled in all
creatures. His mercy overwhelmed His creatures. His Kursi (throne) extends
over the heavens and the earth.
(Eleventh)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The Witness, Who never
absents nor puts another one in His place as a successor to dispose the affair
of His dominion nor needs someone to convey to Him the needs of His
slaves nor to assist Him to satisfy these needs nor to ask Him to have
kindness or mercy upon them.
(Twelfth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The Eternal, The Everlasting,
Who vanishes not nor dies nor becomes destroyed.
(Thirteenth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The Speaker, The Obligator,
The Forbidder, The Teller of the truth, and The guider to the (Right) Way,
The Sender of the messengers, The Revealer of the Book, The One Who
takes charge of every person and knows all that he has earned of good and
bad deeds, The One who requites good by good and evil by evil.
(Fourteenth)

92
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is the Truthful in His promises and
news. No one is truer in statement than Allah. He never breaks His Promise.
(Fifteenth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The Self-Sufficient Master with
all the requirements for that. It is impossible that anything can nullify that
for Him.
(Sixteenth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The All-Holy, Void of all
defects, diseases and deficiencies.
(Seventeenth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The Perfect with the absolute
perfection in all aspects.
(Eighteenth)
Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) is The Just, Who oppresses not
and His slaves fear no oppression from Him. This is a thing that all
scriptures and messengers of Allah unanimously agreed upon. This is one of
the clear unambiguous rules that no jurisprudence or prophet can contradict.
So, Trinitarians, who believe in crucifixion, left all that and stuck to the
ambiguous verses (having more than one meaning), the brief words and the
sayings of those who went astray in times gone by, and who misled many,
and strayed (themselves) from the Right Path. Their basics and sayings
concerning the Lord of the worlds contradict all that to the greatest extent.

We are satisfied by this amount, and we would like to close with this
Qur’anic verse, " And (remember) when Allah took the Covenant of the

93
Prophets, saying, "Take whatever I gave you from the Book and Hikmah
(understanding of the Laws of Allah, etc.), and afterwards there will come
to you a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) confirming what is with you; you
must, then, believe in him and help him". (Allah) said: "Do you agree (to
it) and will you take up My Covenant (which I conclude with you)?" They
said, "We agree". He said: "Then bear witness; and I am with you among
the witnesses (for this)"" Interpretation of the Noble Qur'an : 3:81.
Glorified is He, Whose testimony is the greatest one and His prophets and
messengers have spoken the truth in their agreement and testimony. As for
me, I say but, “I testify that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is
the Messenger of Allah”.
