Who are “The People of The Book”? COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
The term The People of The Book in brief refer to the Christians and the Jews who were recipients of the “heavenly religions” respectively. There is little doubt that these faiths had been altered and have deviated from their original course, and by doing so were no longer within the guidance that God Almighty had chosen for human kind.
What ties the Christians to the Jews and what are the similarities between the two?
Before looking furthers one must note that the Christians and the Jews are in opposition of one another and have severe enmity between them and so unifying them is impossible. One of the main causes for these irreconcilable differences is their differing creeds, as the Christians believe in the divinity of Christ and say that he is one of three in the trinity, claiming that he was crucified and killed on the cross at the hands of the Jews, he was then resurrected from the dead and raised to heaven.
On the contrary the Jews in turn completely deny the prophet-hood of Jesus claiming that he was illegitimately born out of wedlock, and are condescending of his mother. The points of contention between the two are numerous but the point indicated above is sufficient to show that bringing together these two faiths is an impossible task.
Despite the efforts of the world media to show Christianity and Judaism in a good light as partners of one another and with a mutual agreement between the two, the truth could not be further away, and this is only a veneer that they both are content with in order to demonise and attack Islam, which is a commonality between the two.
The truth behind the façade is the following – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
The Jews are convinced that if they rebuild the structure of Solomon then their Saviour will emerge and he is the Messiah Dajjal (the anti-Christ) as is foretold in their scripture. And in that fact is a testimony to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who said; “ the Dajjal (anti-Christ) with be followed by 70,000 of the Jews of Asa>haan who will be wearing the Tayaalisah” or clothes of their religious men”
One may ask if this is the number of their clergymen what is the number of their congregation. Their belief having rejected the prophet hood of Jesus are waiting for their savior who was mentioned in their scripture who will subjugate the people of the Earth for them, what is even more shocking is that the Anti-Christ who will be believed in by the Jews as their savior.
will be blind in one eye and have a human body and will finite and definable, i.e. in a particular place, which is something not attributable to Almighty God who is not encompassed in a place like the Messiah of the Jews.
As for the Christians:
Then their belief revolves around the fact that if the Anti-Christ emerges then that would signal the beginning of a new era for the Christians who will again rule the Earth from Jerusalem. So the Christians consider the Jews a stepping-stone to eventual world domination.
This is why they the Christians are anxious that if the Muslims were to be victorious against the Jews this would delay the decent of Christ. So it is clear the reason why the West and particularly the U.N is obsessed with supporting the state of Israel even when they have established a country on stolen land.
So from what has been clarified the veneer of peace between the Christians and Jews is one built on mutual benefits for both of them and yet there lies a deep resentment and enmity between the two that can result in any moment spilling in to war, if recent history is anything to go by.
The Jewish doctrine regarding the Lordship of God. From the onset it is clear that the Jews have attributed to God that which is not befitting and removes Him from His Lofty attributes by defining Him in derogatory ways, and anyone with an objective eye and with any intelligence would notice that this is something unacceptable for God Almighty.
inaccuracies in Torah or the Old Testament
The reason for these inaccuracies is the fact the Torah or the Old Testament underwent numerous changes and alterations. It is apparent therefore to find that the Old Testament that the Jews attribute to Moses (pbuh) contains many, many stories that are myths and far from any truth, they claims filthy and scandalous things and attribute them to noble Prophets and righteous people who they admittedly say are Prophets of God, and with the permission of God we shall clarify some of the inaccuracies.
By attributing these falsehoods to their prophets they in turn accuse God of poor selection of His prophets, as it shows he was unaware that his prophets would then fall into grave errors, yet this is contradictory with another belief of their that is that God is wise and so a clear contradiction, as God selected these prophets to be shining beacons of guidance and yet he failed to know that they were unsuitable as guiders as they fell into the most unspeakable acts of disobedience.
Many blameworthy characteristics attributed to God
This is one of many blameworthy characteristics they attributed to God and his
messengers, as are the following:
- Poor selection of Prophets
- Ignorance of the future and the unseen world.
- A basic lack of wisdom
And the examples are many where they the Jews attribute derogatory things to God, and anyone with an objective eye and with any intelligence would notice that this is something unacceptable for God Almighty. The Jews unashamedly label God as Racist, oppressive and uncouth. God, for the Jews is the God of the Israelites or the Children of Israel they are his beloved and chosen people and all non-Israelites have no hope or aspiration of God as God rejects them all.
As the God of the Jews is rejecting of all others except the Jews that leaves the people of all other nations to search for an alternative God to draw near to and worship. This is again indicative of an unwise God, exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
Description of God by Jews – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
They the Jews also describe God as having great mass or body, and so they have made him something that is encompassed and are guilty of anthropomorphism. Allah almighty is not one who is defined in a particular place or time, as it is Allah Himself who created time itself and all places that His creation can live therein, and before He created time and place there was no time or place in existence.
So the Jews will be the first to follow the Anti-Christ when he emerges claiming lordship unto himself despite being unable to rid himself of his own imperfection (having only one eye – his other eye will be like that of a dry raisin) and he will have a large body, both these unsightly qualities are not attributable to Allah as it is not logical for him to be in this imperfect form.
This anthropomorphism is reiterated when they lay claim to the idea that Moses (pbuh) saw the back of God, this is narrated in their scripture where they claim God said to Moses (pbuh) [“then I shall raise my hands and thou shall see my back parts, as for my face then it cannot be seen” ] Genesis23:33
These are the terms from the English translation “my behind parts” exalted is Allah from what they attribute to him. They also claim that God fought with Jacob and Jacob got the better of God. [“””Your name will no longer be Jacob,” the man told him. “From now on you will be called Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have won.” Genesis 32:28exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
This anthropomorphism is something indicative of their drawing similarities of God from His creation from their own brains, leading them to describe him in way that are human like. From these erroneous descriptions is the following [ “ The Lord smelled the soothing aroma; and the Lord said to Himself, “] Genesis8:21 exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
Can God really regret? – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
One can also find descriptions about God amongst the Jews whereby they claim that God regretted and had anxiety, and it is only possible to regret if you make a mistake out of ignorance of the outcome of the act in question. And here is a quote from Genesis 6:6 [‘And the Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.”] Exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him. Its is then no surprise that the Jews also attribute to God the he becomes tried and that it is necessary for him to rejuvenate after completing arduous work, this is ridiculous to suggest that The One who if he wanted for something to ‘be’ he says be and it is.
The textual proof of this claim of their attribute to God the he becomes tried and that it is necessary for him to rejuvenate after completing arduous work is the following verse. [“Because in six days did the Lord create the heavens and the earth and on the seventh He rested and refreshed.] Genesis 18:31 Literally that that it was necessary for him to rejuvenate after completing arduous work exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
Face is like blazing fire – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
Similarly, the Jews say that God is one whose face is like that of blazing fire. [The sight of the glory of the LORD was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel.ho is like a blazing fire.] Exodus 24 17 There is no doubt that fire is destructive and damaging unlike light which shines and exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
There are countless examples of the Jews attributing to God that which is not befitting of Him and characterizing him with blameworthy descriptions that anyone with an objective eye and with any intelligence would notice that this is something unacceptable for God Almighty
Mary in Judaism
Like the Jews rejected the prophet-hood of Jesus (pbuh) they also rejected his mother Mary and speak about her using the most scathing attacks claiming that she was a fornicator and a prostitute despite the fact that Jesus (pbuh) spoke to them from the cradle proving her innocence from those accusations.
Jesus (pbuh) in Judaism – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
The Jews also rejected the prophet-hood of Jesus (pbuh) they also rejected his message and speak about him using the most scathing of attacks claiming that he was born illegitimately and was a bastard child despite the fact that Jesus (pbuh) spoke to them from the cradle proving his prophet-hood, in fact the Jews tried and failed to crucify and kill him but they failed and Allah Almighty raised him and save him from them.
Some of the qualities that Christianity attributes to God
Christians like the Jews before them attribute much of what the Jews attributed to God as it is contained in the First part of the Bible called the Old Testament. This is one of many blameworthy characteristics they attributed to God and his messengers as are the following:
- Poor selection of Prophets
- Ignorance of the future and the unseen world.
- A basic lack of wisdom
This anthropomorphism is something indicative of their drawing similarities of God from His creation from their own brains, leading them to describe him in way that are human like. From these erroneous descriptions is the following [ “ The Lord smelled the soothing aroma; and the Lord said to Himself, “]Genesis8:21 exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
One can also find descriptions about God amongst the Jews and Christians whereby they claim that God regretted and had anxiety, and it is only possible to regret if you make a mistake out of ignorance of the outcome of the act in question. And here is a quote from Genesis 6:6
[And the Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.”] Exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him. Its is then no surprise that the Jews and Christians also attribute to God the he becomes tried and that it is necessary for him to rejuvenate after completing arduous work, this is ridiculous to suggest that The One who if he wanted for something to ‘be’ he says be and it is.
And the examples are many where they the Christians attribute derogatory things to God, and anyone with an objective eye and with any intelligence would notice that this is something unacceptable for God Almighty.
- From among some of these incredulous claims is that much like a human God slept and arose from His slumber, in the Psalms 65:78 Exalted is Allah from their attribution to Him Almighty.
- They also say that God breathes out fire from His nose, as is found in Samuel II 22 and Numbers 2 and in Isaiah 30:33 “The breath of the LORD, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it.” There is no doubt that fire is destructive and damaging unlike light which shines and exalted is Allah from what they attribute to Him.
- It is also said that God ordered the killing of the Amalekites, Samuel I 15:3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. Likewise in Numbers 31:17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man. And the similitudes of these are many, examples of barbaric pillaging of people unbefitting to be described as what God commanded. Exalted is Allah from their attribution to Him Almighty.
- Similarly, they also claim that God whistles As is mentioned in Zachariah 10:8 “I will whistle for them and gather them in, for I have redeemed them, and they shall be as many as they were before.”
- likewise they say that God also claps with His hands as mentioned in Ezekiel and Numbers 71 Exalted is Allah from their attribution to Him Almighty.
They also claim that God has private parts in some of their descriptions of Him and that he had blood like in passage 28 Chapter 20 from Acts. They claim for God a head, a face, hair, ears, eyes a torso a heart and a back. Exalted is Allah from their attribution to Him Almighty.
And there are endless examples of these slanders against God that the Christians are guilty of that the tongue feels shy to make mention of especially when your attributing these limited things to Allah. Clear contradictions in Christian belief and a refutation of it.
Firstly: – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
We intend to reproduce in this section those statements of Christ which implicitly or explicitly refute the doctrine of trinity., and that he was the begotten son of God, or God Himself. It should be made apparent from the onset that it is not found in the Bible today a single clear and apparent verse where Jesus is categorically saying to the people “worship me” or that I he Jesus is God.
The Gospel of John 17:3 contains the following statement. Jesus said, making supplication to God: And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The above statement has no other meaning except that the secret of eternal life is that man should believe in Allah as being the only true God and in Jesus as his Messenger.
This statement does not say that eternal life lies in believing in Jesus as God It is apparent then that Jesus original message was one of the oneness of God and the encouragement to worship this one God in order to attain His pleasure. All of the actions of Jesus indicate this submission and subservience and none of his actions indicate that he was God.
This false doctrine regarding the divinity of Jesus then makes the Christians guilty of a further crime that of associating partners with God, as now you have more than one God. Exalted is Allah from their attribution to Him Almighty.
We find that the Christians revere the Cross in fact they worship it, this is because of the following three reasons. 1) the crucifix touches the blessed body of Jesus or so it is claimed, if this is the reason for their veneration of the cross to the point of worship, they should also venerate the donkey as it too touched the body of Jesus according to their scripture, he was carried upon a donkey.
So the donkey should be revered in their tradition and in fact should be worshiped like the Hindus who worship Cows do and this would give them justification as the cow is of more benefit to humans than the donkey. The questions must be asked could this cross be a God as the Christian doctrine encourages people to believe and worship? The answer is of course an unequivocal no.
2) the second explanation is that the Christians consider the crucifix to be the cause of the sacrifice and the reason for the expiation of the sins. If this is to be considered as the logical explanation hen surely they the Christians should also revere Judas as it is he who as is claimed led the enemies of Jesus to him and was the cause of his death as is claimed by the Christians, had it not been for his intervention they would not have found Jesus nor be able to kill his as is claimed by the Christians.
The questions must be asked could this reverence of the cross be applied to Judas as he was also the cause of the “sacrifice” and the cause likewise of the expiation of the sins” The answer is of course an unequivocal no.
3) the third explanation is that the blood of Jesus is said to have been spilt onto the cross. If this explanation is to be considered then one has to ask the question why the Christians do not also revere the thorns that were placed on his head as he was being crucified.
The questions must be asked could those thorns that were place upon Jesus be held in the same regard as the cross does as his blood touch both of them. The answer is of course an unequivocal no. And can anyone with sound intellect understand or appreciate any of these illogical explanations for their religious malpractice. Of course NO!
Thirdly: – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
One finds in the book that the Christians hold in their hands today the names of many prophets of God who the Christians claim where Gods and son’s of God in their own right. This is why if one was to ask a Christian how many sons does your God have? They will surely reply just the one.
An answer that is puzzling how can this be accepted when the Christians have in their scripture the names of many of Gods sons. This is utterly objectionable and contradictory and makes no sense to anyone of a sound mind.
The contradiction in respect of the creation of Jesus (pbuh) The Christians claim that Jesus is the begotten son of God and not the created son. The question is how is one begotten and not created? The fact that Jesus was born ultimately means that he was in need of some one to bring him into existence, it also means that before his birth he was not in existence and was nothing and so owned nothing.
What is clear is that Jesus was a creation from among the creation of Allah and He Allah bought him into existence in a miraculous way as he bought Adam (pbuh) into existence without a father and a mother. They not being satisfied with claiming divinity for Jesus they went one step further and claimed that he was the begotten son of God.
The NIV translation of John 3:16 is different from the King James Version. The translators have removed the word “begotten” and say “one and only” Son. All other translations use “begotten” and the Nicene Creed clearly translates the word “begotten.” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16—KJV)
Son or not
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16—NIV). So you see that the word begotten is mentioned in some Versions and omitted in others. The questions is; is it allowed for someone to add and omit from the words of God The answer is of course an unequivocal no.
How can the book that the Christians hold in their hands be considered the protected words of God when all of these alterations have taken place? And if the changes in question were done at the hands of the scholars of the Christians, then what those who are enemies of Christianity like the Jews must have done is only left to the imagination!
Fifthly: – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
The Christians have clearly exaggerated in regards to Jesus (pbuh) claiming that he is God and further to that worshiping him, whilst at the same time everyone accepts that he was given birth to by Mary (pbuh). The question that one cannot escape is can a God be born, and can he emerge from the womb of a woman? And can someone who has a sound brain and intellect consider this child to be a God besides Allah.
Definitely not, and if Allah Almighty wanted to recreate a million Messiahs like Jesus he could do it with just the word ”be” and it is. As Allah says in his final revelation the Quran. And it does not befit the Most Gracious to take an offspring! [Maryam 19:92]
All those who are in the heavens and the earth will come to the Most Gracious as His slaves. [Maryam 19:93] So clearly the Trinity doctrine in Christianity is not something that was professed by Jesus (pbuh) and it was something later added to the body of Christian doctrine over time.
The contradiction in the belief of the “Trinity”. The Christians believe that the trinity consists, of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit but yet they do not believe that these three are Gods in their own right rather they believe that the trinity itself is the God. Then they continue saying the Father is great the Son is great and the Holy Spirit is great, but they are not three greats but rather just one great.
The question must be what is this language the Christians are using. One should ask also if one of these three parts of the Trinity were to commit the crime of murder, could the punishment be passed to one of the other two parts. The answer will be no because these three elements are individual.
Another point is that when they refer to the “father” the human being’s natural tendency is to think that the father is some huge massive entity. The “son” bring to mind the image of a young man, perhaps with blue eyes and blonde hair perhaps conjuring an image of a bearded man.
As for the “holy spirit” then the image that is conjured in the heads of the Christians is on of a dove, or a blazing fire, however it is less decisive than the other two. And so when the question is posed to the Christians which image of God comes to mind when you think about the Lord God, you will receive contradictory answers. So what does this demonstrate?
This demonstrates that the belief of the Christians is so incomprehensible and corrupt that anyone with any sense will reject it.Anyone with any sense of objectivity who is not simply trying to defend the undependable.
Seventhly: – COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
From among the great contradictions in Christian belief is the claim that they make about Jesus (pbuh) first claiming divinity for him then claiming that he forgave a prostitute her sins as is reported in John 8. “ go and don’t not fall into error again” The question that is unanswered is why if he Jesus (pbuh) was able to intervene in this situation and demonstrate his mercy for humankind, why did he not likewise intervene when Adam (pbuh) was banished from Paradise-
after eating from the forbidden tree, why did he not say to them “ go and do not fall into error again” like he said to the lady mentioned in John? This shows the great contradictions that make no sense and have no conceivable answer.
Another demonstration of this is in the following story where it is said three people converted to Christianity at the hands of a priest, and they the three converts returned to work, when a follower and beloved person to the priest came and asked what happened when the priest told them about the converts they asked to seethem?
What have they learnt? Then they asked each of them about what they each new about the trinity, the first replied to the priest you taught me that I have a God in the heaven and another that Mary gave birth to and another that takes the form of a dove when he descends to the earth, at which point the priest angered by his responses kicked him out and said you are ignorant.
The second said to the priest you taught me that from the three Gods one was crucified and the other two remain. He was also kicked out, then they called for the third convert who was more intelligent then the previous two, he said that I have memorized what you taught me and I have learnt everything you have said, three are one and one is three so one was crucified and so died as a result they all died as they are all one unity.
This doctrine is neither clear for the uneducated nor is it explainable by the scholar. A proof of this would be the fact that half of the Anglican bishops of England rejected the idea of the divinity of Jesus pbuh. This was reported in the daily news on the 25th of June1984.
It is reported by Luke, one of the authors of the Gospels (it is claimed that he was inspired by God to write it) that Jesus was the son of Joseph which means the following:
A) That Jesus was not a God or the son of a God because his father was known as Joseph the carpenter and this is in direct contradiction with what the Christians claim in their publications.
B) Regarding Mary, either:
– She was married to Joseph the carpenter and gave birth to Joseph and that contradicts what both the Christians and the Muslims believe which is that
Mary was unmarried.
– Or that Mary was not married to Joseph the carpenter and so Luke’s account would lay claim to the fact that she was guilty of a heinous crime and that her child was illegitimately born. This conforms to the Jewish claim which is an absolutely false one.
The corruption that the Bible has undergone from the additions, deletions and alterations have proved difficult for the Christians to explain. An example of this would be the additions to the Gospel of Luke in an attempt to cover this unexplainable contradiction to the eyes of the Christians. It is clear that there is a contradiction between the Christian doctrine about the divinity of Jesus and what is reported in the Gospel of Luke.
Ninthly- COMPARISON BETWEEN ISLAM CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM
Despite the best efforts of the Christians to explain the divinity of Jesus, one finds contradictions in the chapters that claim hisdivinity. Examples of this include
- What is reported in the Gospel of John 5:30 that Jesus would say: that he was unable to do anything except with the power of God and his disposition was like the disposition of any of God’s creations. This indicates his humanity and not his divinity.
- What is reported in the Gospel of Mark 13:32 that Jesus was unaware of the time for the day of judgment meaning that he was unaware of the world of the unseen except if God informed him. Therefore, he his like any other Prophet which again indicates his humanity and not his divinity.
- That Jesus would become hungry and thirsty. Other than that his needs were like the needs of any human and this indicates his humanity and not his divinity.
- In the Gospel of Mark, that a man from the Jews came to Jesus asking him who was the first of us all. Jesus replied to him the Lord, the One. This indicates his humanity and his worship to that god and if he believed in the trinity he would have surely taught it to the questioner.
There are numerous examples scattered in the bible that indicate his humanity and contradict his divinity and this stands completely opposite to what Christians believe about his divinity.
One finds that Christian doctrine is also in contradiction with some of the other Gospels like the Gospel of Peter (which negates his death upon the cross) and like the Gospel of Thomas that exposes the belief of the crucifixion and the death and the subsequent rising from the dead were not absolute doctrines of the Christians in the third and fourth centuries. This means that Christian doctrine should be considered progressive and change.
This is clearly indicative of an idea (the death, the crucifixion and the rising from the dead) that has developed and changed over time. To add to the mêlée, in Palestine in one of the Gospels that was uncovered, there was a claim that Jesus was born as a human.
This contradicts the belief of the Christians today who claim that he was divine. The question that should be asked in this doctrine of the trinity is surely whether or not it is possible for the Father to sacrifice His son. To answer this question, I should allude to the fact that this question has already previously been answered in another book entitled (The Lord the Creator between the magnification of the Muslims, the slander of the Christians and the Jews and the rejection of the atheists.
An ex-catholic missionary
However, what will follow is a brief answer that was given by Gary Miller, an ex-catholic missionary. He says: it is incorrect to suggest that Allah does everything that is conceivable, for that is not befitting for Allah for example does he do what the foolish people do?
The human instinctively glorifies and magnifies the Lord, and He Allah does that which befits His Lordship. Here perhaps the questioner would ask, is it possible for Jesus to be a God and a human at the same time? Can he be killed? Is he mortal or does he have eternal life?
As humans are mortal and Allah has neither beginning nor end so it is not conceivable that he Jesus was both. Likewise, the human is limited and is unaware of everything whereas Allah is limitless.
It is well documented that he Jesus, would eat and drink and was circumcised on the eight day and that he was breastfed, he was also slapped across the face and humiliated (according to the Christians) all human traits and un-attributable to Allah the creator. This demonstrates again the clear contradictions in the doctrine of the Christians and proves its falsehood.
