One of the reasons for comparative religion is to solidify the truth, expose falsehoods and refresh the souls (whomever and wherever they may be) into the awareness of reality. The biggest wall or hurdle that the arguer has to get around is that THE GOD IS FOR EVERYONE AND NOT JUST FOR ONE’S OWN SECT OR RELIGION. Once agreed upon, then the confused are spiritually and physically confounded by the fact that Islam talks about the above universal quality on several fronts including the all comprehensive and unifying 124,000 prophets teaching ONE CREED to humanity whereas other religions have to stop short of confessing Muhammad (pbh) as a true, blessed and holy MESSENGER FROM THE ONE AND ONLY GOD.

In other words, their weaknesses show them up in front of the open and truthful but that never stopped anyone from being of the willfully blind. And these blind spots are not revolutionary or new but, like a constant pattern, are often repeated again and again as humans from all ages and eras are constantly falling in danger from ‘spiritual’ tunnel vision. So it is also with those who call themselves Muslims as the Muslim is not a super creature from another planet but a human being also.

In several hadiths Prophet Muhammad (pbh) has declared that the Muslims (the majority of them) would be exactly like the Jews and Christians as to their behavior. It’s true that the religion of Islam is as a religious doctrine and as a rightful practice, the best, purest and most correct form for worship up until the Last Day of existence before the raising up for the placement into Paradise or Hell-fire. And it is true that one who desires to please the LORD will follow that pathway called Islam above other pathways when given a chance and a choice. It is like another world when it comes time to examine the people who are so-called representatives of this religion. However, it is strictly MANDATORY that when one is engaged in examining the people of this religion or any religion that one does NOT become a judge of finality for it is ONLY ALLAH that holds that position. Why is that?

First, ALLAH has the power to guide as well as the power to free up the heart so that a person can ‘desire’ to be free in faith at any time during his life. So, don’t deny ALLAH’s PERVASIVE MAGNITUDE. Secondly, ALLAH does what HE WILLS and no one can stop HIM. So, don’t try to make up HIS MIND because HE may reverse things on you as we can learn from hadith literature. Thirdly, we don’t know about what happened in the past or in the sky before we came to Earth (as hadiths declare) so do the Islamic thing, do the right thing but don’t go overboard.

Abu Waqid al-Laithi said that when ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) went out to the battle of Hunain, he passed a tree called Dhat Anwat belonging to the polytheists on which they hung their weapons. The people asked him to appoint a Dhat Anwat for them just as those people had one, to which ALLAH’s Messenger replied, “Glory be to ALLAH! This is like what the people of Moses said when they asked him to appoint them a god just as other peoples had gods. By HIM in whose hand my soul is, you will certainly follow the practices of your predecessors.”   (Tirmidhi)

Thauban reported that ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) said, “When the sword is used among my people it will not be withdrawn from them till the Day of Resurrection, and the last hour will not come before tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my people worship idols. There will be among my people 30 great liars each of them asserting that he is GOD’s prophet, whereas I am the SEAL of the prophets after whom there will be NO {more} prophets; but a section of my people will continue to hold to the truth till GOD’s Command comes and will prevail and will NOT be injured by those who oppose them.”                                               (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

‘Abdullah b. Mas’ud reported that the Prophet (pbh) said, “The mill of Islam will go round till the year 35, or 36, or 37, then if they perish they will have followed the path of those who perished before them, but if their religion is maintained for them it will be maintained for them for seventy years.” He asked him whether that meant seventy years more or seventy years altogether, and he replied that it meant seventy {years} altogether.   (Abu Dawud)

Ibn al-Musayyib said, “When the first civil strife occurred, i.e. the assassination of ‘Uthman, not one of those who had been at {the battle of} Badr remained {alive}; when the second occurred, i.e. the Harra {battle}, not one of those who had been at al-Hudaibiya remained {alive} and the third one occurred and did not disappear while there was intelligence {remains of good in the religion} among the people.  (Bukhari)

When did the mill of Islam start to go around? Was it when Muhammad (pbh) first became a prophet at age 40 or did it start when he passed away (ALLAH have mercy on HIS BELOVED ONE)? ALLAH alone knows for sure. We do know from hadith literature that the first, second and third generations were highly blessed and able to keep the fragrance of Islam strong without the mixture of too much outside disruptive forces. Of course as we also know and have been taught by hadith literature, the first generation (Sahabah) was better off in Islamic harmony and practice and single-mindedness than the second generation (Tabi’een) and the second generation was better off than the third generation (Tabaee al-Tabi’een). Now there is us and at this point it is NOT looking so hot!

That has practically been the pattern of true religions down throughout the years. Religion didn’t disappear nor did people with faith. However, worldly issues, and unscrupulous scholars and philosophers with a good dose of the ‘love for this world’ started playing havoc with the simple minded process of worship. So one would expect this about Islam and we do have a hadith from Hudhaifa (?) talking about the ‘kingdoms’ (nations) coming forth after the strict harmonizing and unity of original Islam.

The so-called Christian religion and the Roman Catholic Church give us a good example. The original teachings of Jesus (pbh), the Christian religion and the Catholic Church are NOT in reality synonymous terms. Yes, there are a lot of good people who belong to this or that persuasion at least in our eyes but as a message to the people in complete truth, there is a very big difference between church doctrine and what Jesus (pbh) brought as HOLY and BLESSED REVELATION.

Now any TRUE RELIGION and people following that TRUTH must incorporate 3 things. Not one thing or two things but THREE THINGS to be whole and complete! First, they must strictly adhere to the ONENESS PRINCIPLE of acknowledging the ONE, TRUE and ONLY GOD and ALL THE TRUE PRACTICES that go with it AND NOT AGAINST IT! Do it or at least acknowledge it with a humbled and willing heart.

Secondly, a person’s BLOOD, MONEY AND HONOR must be considered sacred if he willing upholds the virtues of steps number 1 and 2. And that people are given certain inalienable rights as a test to see how they perform under steps 1 and two.

Finally, the person must honor the creation of all lower realms such as the plant and animal communities and strive to maintain a harmonious existence within the different ecological frameworks found on this planet which means more harmony and a lot less greed. So let it be said that ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’.

In this world of ours there are plenty of people doing at least one of these things including mobsters, crooks and all sorts of humanity. However, it is the first step that is loaded with the highest of awards when the idea of and ALL THE TRUE PRACTICES that go with it’ is put to use or attempted in good faith.

The second principle or step is the famous do unto others as you would have them do unto you or want for your brother what you would want for yourself. Or like the saying from Caliph ‘Umar – “The best way of punishing the one who does not fear ALLAH in his dealings with you is that you should fear ALLAH in your dealings with Him (Allah).” This is a good expression from Caliph ‘Umar.

Students of comparative religion might appreciate this saying as it enlightens one on the correct meaning of the expression of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) when he declared to his followers concerning the ‘turning of one’s cheek’. This shows the superiority of a strong believer over a weak one and it also shows how one, with ALLAH’s Permission, is putting ‘fire’ on the head of the disbeliever.

In short the Roman Catholic Church takes as its bedrock philosophy NOT the New Testament but the built up philosophical wrangling from approximately 120 AC. No real date can be put on it because the ‘dark era’ of lost knowledge and interpretation of that knowledge would have been mixed and mingled with the ‘leaven’ right after the destruction of the Jewish Temple in 70 AC.

What followed this occurrence was a fragmentation of originality going off in many different directions.  Around 120 AC or a little bit before, philosophical debates occurred and continued until a kind of philosophy was adopted as sort of directional principles that allowed later generations to come up with Crucifixion, Trinity and Mother of God concepts.

However, there are supposedly a lot of Roman Catholics who adhere SOMEWHAT to principles two and three and partially principle number one – if ALLAH WILLS. At least they are a lot better than outright pagans who worship a host of idols made with hands.

This topic leads us into the Islamic topic of various sects in Islam. There are many would be sects in Islam that try to pass themselves off as Islamic but who fail miserably in that attempt in front of a ‘knowledgeable person’. Why have various sects in Islam or in any religion? Because after the purity of the Millstone goes around, there are devious people who create divisions and deviations based on empty-minded philosophical wanderings. And because people are people, “you will certainly follow the practices of your predecessors” becomes the norm.

The two major schools of thought in Islam are the Sunni school and the Shi ‘ah school. However, both of these schools of thought have produced many different types of sectarian divisions with the Shi ‘ah school responsible for most of the bizarre sects. Under this topic I will only add what certain things mean to me (to mention just a few items) and any individual is capable if he/she is honest in thought and heart to avoid being yanked around by religious so-called scholars who are nothing but mere managers of farcical fraud.

1. A person doesn’t want to pray in our mosque or doesn’t want to pray together with me. Why? Is my GOD different from his GOD? Didn’t the original believers preach and practice brotherhood and the strength of purpose of unity? Stay away from separatists (of any kind even in one’s own sect) because they probably kiss themselves too much. This thought resembles not Judaism but Talmudic Judaism.

2. Most of Prophet Muhammad’s Companions were crooks and hypocrites. If so, this is one hell of a weak and foolish religion that couldn’t last even as long as the pure beliefs of Jesus (pbh) and his flock. Better look for another religion IF that asinine statement is true.

3. Try and carry a special stone with you for praying. What? Is that going to give me good luck? That reminds me of certain ‘good luck’ relics like a piece of the so-called true cross or some bone from some saint or even a lucky rabbit’s foot. Chalk this up to resembling Roman Catholicism. Pieces of stone are like statues and that can be likened to dangerous leanings towards idolatry especially concerning the evils that go into the false practices of SHRINE worship which is strictly forbidden in Islam.

4. Who was supposed to be the first Caliph and the Law of Succession? If it didn’t happen the way it happened then Divine Destiny and part of the Quran is cancelled. Any person with half a brain should be able to figure that one out. Ibn ‘Umar said that if a person believes in all of the Islamic pillars but denies Divine Destiny than he is not of him {as to being on the Straight Path}. So if one doesn’t believe in Divine Destiny then one believes that ALLAH is not really in control.

5. The Law of Succession seems on the outside really great EXCEPT no other known religion seems to have had it! Besides this, it tries to put the evidence in a philosophy rather than on a ‘by their fruits you will know them’ type of an idea such that good people don’t go around acting like beasts. What that leads to is a ‘privileged class’ of clerics and a declaration like the Roman Catholics made in that ‘we are the one true Church’. This concept, remember, gave us the Crucifixion, Trinity and Mother of God ideas all stemming from the past-off idea that the loyal servant Peter began the holy succession of popes – one from the other without a break in succession.

6. Taqiyya (religious dissimulation) or the case of covering up the truth through the denial of religion or planed ignorance or whatever it means nowadays. Originally, the idea of denying one’s religion when a life threatening situation occurs is permitted. However, other extemporaneous uses for lying, except to bring people closer together, is forbidden in Islam. What this shows is that perverted scholars, over time, tended to reinforce and create certain laws, rules and regulations that actually NEVER existed in REAL ISLAM.*

We find similar ideas in the New Testament when Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) accuses the Jews of sitting in the Judgment seat of Moses (pbh) while proclaiming falsehood. That means that the Jews would make up the laws and activities as they went along in contradiction to what was given to their beloved prophet Moses (pbh).

From the Gospel of Matthew in Hebrew NOT in Greek:

The Pharisees and {self-proclaimed} wisemen sit upon the seat of Moses. Therefore, all that he (Moses) said to you do it with diligence but according to their {Pharisees and wisemen} reforms and their precedents do NOT do because they talk but do NOT do.   Matthew (23: 2-3)

Therefore, one has a dangerous BUT NOT NEW PRESEDENCE which the diligent seeker after truth can investigate if one is serious about finding out about the happenings and occurrences during the first 70 years of Islam.

In truth, the difference between Sunni and Shi ‘ah were so very minor as to be accounted as negligible in the beginning. Therefore, the knowledge that the real difference between these two groups is actually political and manufactured folly invented by scheming clerics tended to reinforce differences, separation and exclusion. And like the Holy Roman Catholic Church, which fortifies the prophecy of Muhammad (pbh) concerning his people, certain sects started to develop strange ways which were never sanctioned by ALLAH and HIS Prophet!!!

Is there a perfect sect of people in Islam? No, there is no perfect sect of people but following closely to the prescribed practices of the Prophet (pbh) and the four Righteous Caliphs without creating mischief while holding close to the practices of the Sahabah/Tabi’een while maintaining stability and avoiding fitna is as close to the original Islam as this generation is going to get.

Let me say that I heard part of Pope Francis’ Homily and I most certainly agree with him in feeling that the poor should not be abused or mistreated. Let me also say that former Pope Benedict the 16th in his research admitted ‘bravely’ that Jesus (pbh) was born several years earlier than what the ‘church’ has led people to believe. Before he declared that truth with the help of research specialists, that FACT was already discussed in my works (books and articles).

Another piece of news might be interesting to the new Pope and that is that Mary the mother of Jesus (pbh) gave birth to as many as six children in the normal way as can be partially deduced from the New Testament itself! (Galatians (1: 19), Luke 8 (19-21) and Matthew (13: 54-58) – an interpretive story based on the knowledge of what happens to prophets amongst their own people as they are being held up to ridicule and disbelief.

And when he (Jesus) was come into his own region {being gone so many years from Palestine but returning on the foresight knowledge that his foster father had died}, he started teaching people in their own places of worship {their synagogues} but they became astonished and somewhat afraid and declared, “Whence has this man {such wisdom as this} and these mighty works {miracles} he does perform in front of us unless he be guided by some devilish spirit.”

{How can these things be unless something is amiss or a devil comes to us} Is this NOT the carpenter’s {whom we called Joseph} son? Is NOT {this} his mother {whom is called} Mary? And {are these NOT} his brothers: James, Joses, Simon and Judas?

And {are these NOT} his sisters, are they NOT all {living with us in our midst as common believers} whence then has this man all these things {i.e. how has he risen above his lowly station in life}?

And they became offended by that which he did {as if he were possessed by a devil or a magician being strange to them}. But Jesus said unto them in truth and in declaration of himself, “A prophet is NOT without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.”


Matthew (13: 54-58)

Her first child was born in the unusual way (Virgin Birth) but the rest of her children came through the normal sexual union. She was a woman of truth and of the highest of her sex in the eyes of ALLAH and ALLAH’s religion is ONE. As a woman she receives blessings from her LORD for the proper sexual act and in doing so she fulfilled the blessings in THE WAY, ISLAM that one religion from ADAM in that she obeyed the LORD as is found in the Old Testament: ‘Be fruitful and multiply’.

Thus, proper sex DOES earn blessings from the ONE WHO IS BEST TO BLESS! Therefore, she should NOT be looked upon as a goddess or the Mother of God or something above the human being. As ALLAH declares in the Quran: you will find NO CHANGE in MY WORDS! Mary the mother of Jesus (pbh) was an outstanding and obedient servant of THE MOST HIGH and a true SIGN to humanity of devout servitude and womanhood.


Some people are shocked by some of my predictions such as ‘within twenty years’  or ‘within thirty years’ expect blah, blah, blah. As far as that is concerned, I still stick by what was written. As far as evidence or things that will happen, a partial list is found throughout these writings. I say partial because the world is a big place and lots of things of course will happen.

I mentioned somewhere before that expect a recovery to happen before the boom (Great Signs) are lowered. You know a recovery gets silly jackasses to feel fine about themselves and to scoff at the idea of ‘THERE REALLY IS A MEANINGFUL GOD’ concept. Therefore, these deaf, dumb and blind individuals can feel good about themselves in playing fast and loose with their original commitment to being obedient to their LORD.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!       Isaiah (5: 20)

As an example, the joyful but criminal acceptance of ‘gay marriage’ is like telling the ONE GOD, “Hey YOU, what are YOU going to do about it or “Hey YOU, why don’t YOU mind YOUR OWN business”!

As in all dealings with the ONE WHO deserves our reverence, people should have the intent to PRAISE HIM and NOT to try and mock HIM as those losers who tried in the past but who found out to their utter horror when DEATH was unleashed on them en masse.

And what is there to keep back men from believing now that Guidance has come to them, nor from praying for Forgiveness from their LORD but that (they wait for) the ways of the ancients to overtake them or the WRATH be brought to them FACE TO FACE?        Q (18: 55)

* Thauban reported that ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) said, “When the sword is used among my people it will not be withdrawn from them till the Day of Resurrection, and the last hour will not come before tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my people worship idols. There will be among my people 30 great liars each of them asserting that he is GOD’s prophet, whereas I am the SEAL of the prophets after whom there will be NO {more} prophets; but a section of my people will continue to hold to the truth till GOD’s Command comes and will prevail and will NOT be injured by those who oppose them.”                                               (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

It was narrated that ‘Umm Salmah and ‘Umm Habibah told ALLAH’s Prophet (PBUH) about the church called “Maria” which they had seen in the land of Abyssinia. They described its beauty and the pictures therein. He {the Prophet (pbh)} said: “Those are the people who build places of worship on the grave of every dead man who was righteous and then make therein those pictures. Those are the worst of creation unto ALLAH.”     (Al-Bukhari)

The following quotes were taken from the book, Stories of the prophets by: Imam Ibn Kathir translated by: Sheikh Muhammad Mustafa Gemeiah Office of the Grand Imam, Sheikh Al-Azhar and Edited by: Aelfwine Acelas Mischler

Worshiping anything other than ALLAH is a tragedy that results not only in the loss of freedom; its serious effect reaches man’s mind and destroys it as well. ALMIGHTY ALLAH created man and his mind with its purpose set on achieving knowledge, the most important of which is that ALLAH alone is the CREATOR and all the rest are worshipers (slaves). Therefore, disbelief in ALLAH, or polytheism, results in the loss of freedom, the destruction of the mind, and the absence of a noble target in life. (p. 40)

It also has been called by the author: a suffocating injustice to the mind’ (p. 41). And very well it might be called that! Muslims are supposed to have a strong heart and mind complex. The MIND builds, restrains, expands, processes and harmonizes with life or the LIVING HEART. It is well known in Islam that ALLAH prefers by far the knowing slave over the ignorant one.

What surprised him {Abraham} was the way his people behaved when they entered the temple: they bowed and started to cry, begging and imploring their gods for help as if the idols could hear or understand these requests!  (p. 71)

The ignorant slave can get spun around a lot and thinks on a low order of things – food, job, money (not really glorifying the LORD) while always being in danger of being led astray whereas the more intelligent slave can expand beyond more than just food, job and money which is a part of life and incorporate more Islamic praise and worship for THE ONE WHOSE HAND IS ABOVE ALL CREATION thus MAGNIFYING THE NAME OF ALLAH! So the ignorant slave has a greater chance of losing his true purpose in life and that is to serve ONLY ALLAH as directed from HIM and shown by HIS prophets (ALLAH’s peace be upon them all).

The problem with the Shi ‘a branch of Islam and which is clearly seen, is the fondness for so-called SHRINES. Now in Islam, it is clearly understood that there are three places to visit and ONLY three places to visit as in a pilgrimage to or as in a holy place filled with VIRTUE and BLESSINGS by just being there. These three are in order of importance the area of the Kabah in Makkah, the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina and Al-Quds in Jerusalem.

The idea of a SHRINE is a place of worship where special ‘vibes’ for wellbeing can be felt and special ‘rewards’ can be attained through proper rituals thus drawing one closer to the CREATOR HIMSELF! This ALLAH has permitted in the above three places. However, going outside HIS CONSTRAINTS is NOT permitted and in fact is rejected. Similarly, with food or drink there are some things permitted and some things which are labeled as forbidden. So in truth, food is not always (good) food and drink is not always (good) drink as to their being acceptable.

One can feel special vibes in going to a circus but that has NO inherent blessings awarded to it. One can also feel special vibes in worshiping idols but those feelings come from Satan and his brood and not from anything truthful. Hezbollah, the Lebanese wing of Iran, has come out in saying they are involved in Syria to protect the Shi ‘ah Shrines found there.

Even those who desire GOD-WORSHIP can be duped by unscrupulous religious leaders who can pin the weak but unwary to faithfully seek out ‘idol worship’ to improve their so-called religious creed. This is one big reason why ALLAH has more love and respect for the ‘wise worshiper’ rather than the one who is ignorant because the wise worshiper is more demanding with the truth and is less hasty with his logic.

For example the current Shi ‘ah dilemma has a long history that started in Iraq but has been strengthened by Iranian influence. The history of early Islam in Iran is quite beautiful but how did Shi ‘ahism dominate a once Sunni Muslim state? The basic answer is simple. Shi ‘ahism came to power in Iran ONLY through forced conversions to that philosophy. “Iran officially became a Shiite state only at the beginning of the 16th century when Shah Isma’il, the founder of the Safavid dynasty proclaimed it as such.  Here was your forced conversion and compliance with “state doctrine” (L. Nagy). And these forced conversions are condemned by ALLAH’s HOLY WORD – The Quran!

Let there be NO COMPULSION in religion: Truth stands out clear from error: Whoever rejects Tagut (anything worshiped besides ALLAH including so-called go betweens) and believes in ALLAH has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that NEVER breaks and ALLAH HEARS and KNOWS All THINGS.                                              Q (2: 56)

Yet ALLAH is THE TOLERENT AND MOST FORGIVING provided the worshiper can overcome that which hangs around his neck and seemingly drags him down into the mire:

You People of the Book! Why reject you the Signs of ALLAH of which you are (yourselves) witnesses?        Q (3: 70)

But verily your LORD, to those who do wrong in ignorance, but who thereafter repent and make amends, Your LORD after all this, is OFT-FORGIVING, MOST MERCIFUL.              Q (16: 119)

“Yet…the (human) soul certainly incites {inclines to} evil UNLESS my LORD does bestow HIS MERCY but surely my LORD is OFT-FORGIVING, MOST MERCIFUL.”                Q (12: 53)

Now to a lighter side:

Let us take a look at what used to be a mysterious verse in the New Testament:

From It Just Ain’t Going to Happen:

If you love me keep my commandments.

And I shall pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter {prophet} that he may abide with you forever {that you should be raised up in his Ummah for Judgment}.    (John 14: 15-16)

Here it is plain and simple that Jesus (pbh) is the one doing the talking. What about the next mysterious verse? Well, in debates between Christians and Muslims it was clear the first verse from the Islamic side was declaring that Jesus (pbh) was talking about another prophet being sent after his first stay on Earth. However, when the Christians got into the fray they would ask a simple question that stymied the Muslims. They asked, “Did Muhammad die?” Of course the Muslim would concede that he (pbh) did die. Now the Christian was smug in suggesting that how can one be with someone forever if that person is dead? Therefore, the ‘other Comforter’ could not be another prophet and certainly not Muhammad!

Personally, I never really looked at this verse very deeply. However, it was only recently that this verse was being worked on in my article and then my mind went abuzz for some reason and started clicking off some hadiths I had used in the past in some of my writings.

There is no need to relist these hadiths, etc. because they are found in other parts of my discourse. However, a partial list can be presented about why the ‘he may abide with you forever’ is about Prophet Muhammad (pbh).

The Christian apologists claim that the above mystery discuses one of the persons of the trinity and that that person is God also due to the ‘forever’ business. But they don’t have a strong body of hadith literature and neither can they figure things out nor are they completely honest.

Most definitely a type of prophet and a type of ‘Chosen One’ or Messiah is being talked about here because of the comparisons used and the time frame for these things to happen. Let us not be confused by the word ‘Messiah’ as that means someone who is ‘anointed’ for good or for bad. Let us just say that a very important individual will be appearing and has a great station such that many of those who are to be exalted will be with him forever.

1. There is the hadith that every prophet has a designated pond where the followers of said prophet (his Ummah) will go to.

2. There is the hadith that talks about the Assembly of the Last Day whereas peoples of the former ages and this age are on a plain raised up and membership of Paradise is discussed among the Companions and that one-fourth will be Muslim of which the cry of ALLAH IS MOST GREAT IS heard so that one-third of Paradise will be Muslim whereby a cry of ALLAH MOST GREAT IS heard whereby one-half of all of Paradise will be Muslim.

3. There is the hadith speaking of the excellence of Muhammad (pbh) as to having all of the prophets behind him while he is carrying the flag of Praise for his LORD.

4. There is the hadith telling of his pre-eminence among the prophets in that fearful mankind will be reeling in terror as the Sun comes close such that they will go to prophet after prophet to find relief but Jesus (pbh) who will not mention any sin of his will tell the people that what they are requesting him to do is above his capability and that they should go to Muhammad (pbh) for their concerns of salvation and Muhammad (pbh) will be taught new words of glorious praise to his LORD for salvation of mankind.

5. The article The Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy found on this Web site also pertains to this notion and gives support from the New Testament about such things. So being raised up in his (Muhammad’s) Ummah is in fact declaring that ‘he may abide with you forever’!!!!!!!!!

Of course there are other things to help us guide us to the truth including Ibn Taymiyah’s opinion of the Prophet (pbh) and the truthful part of the forged Gospel of Barnabas as well as other incidentals.

The final expression here is that one can be solidly positive that the so-called mystery of ‘he may abide with you forever’ discusses Prophet Muhammad (pbh) and no one else. Therefore, there should be no confusion about this issue and if some people are in doubt, it is their own lack of understanding as to truth and no one else’s!


From Who Are the Gog and Magog: A discussion on the mysterious Gog and Magog and why they will be unstoppable even though they will be primitive and barbaric.

“Knowledge without intelligence is like having shoes with no feet and intelligence without knowledge is like having feet with no shoes.”     (Ali ibn Abi Talib)

Human beings have been gifted with the facilities and powers of intellect and reason by which our daily lives, the physical/spiritual world around us and even our religion have an eternal source from which our thoughts do spring. This is the ideal, unimpaired process of unblemished thought which is not tarnished by artificial barriers set forth to protect ‘meism’ from the ‘naked truth’.

In some of my writings I have discussed the Gog and Magog peoples but only briefly. The current literature about these ‘peoples’ including some Islamic literature is very much incomplete, confusing and just plain wrong. Indeed, there are a lot of myths about the Gog and Magog peoples that have been passed down through the centuries.

In nature, we do find the Gog and Magog example. The example is that of the locust. In some years the locust, which is a form of grasshopper, appears to be almost nonexistent. However, in just one year, almost like magic, there appears such a horde (a communal collection) of these creatures (sometimes estimated as a million times a million of these creatures) that even in daytime; the sun’s light is nearly cut off as an artificial darkness invades the land due to their swarming techniques.

However, there is one important point to remember! The locusts mill around the ground as empty do-nothings UNTIL ONE OF THOSE CRITTERS TAKES FLIGHT AND THEN THE DEADLY SWARM BEGINS. That is also an important key to our understanding of who the GOG are.

Another point to be taken is that we already have tasted these ‘peoples’ beforehand and therefore we should already know who they are. That is, we should already know in general who makes up this deadly and crazed army that no one has the power to stop. Furthermore, we have such clear and unambiguous sayings from Prophet Muhammad (pbh) that we can understand how it is that mankind will NOT have the resources to deal with them. Therefore, they become relatively free to go on their rampage basically unopposed!!!

Even today we are seeing in the news more and more bizarre and psychopathic actions being created by those who society would call abnormal. Such things are torture, cannibalism, and other cold, cruel and impersonal acts considered non-human or monstrous by their various human societies. So in retrospect we are seeing a ‘growing but unstoppable’ type of human being with an internal lust bent on wicked things EVEN WHEN THE SOCIETY THAT THEY ARE IN HAS NOT COLAPPSED.

The Prophet (pbh) was clear that the Gog and Magog were building up a force for the future in a correct (Sahih) but not very well understood hadith.

Zainab daughter of Jahsh told that ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) came in to visit her one day in a state of trepidation saying, “There is NO god but ALLAH. Woe to the Arabs because of {the} evil which has drawn near! Today an opening has been made in the barrier restraining Gog and Magog to this extent and he (pbh) made a circle with his thumb and forefinger. Zainab said she asked ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) whether they would perish when there were righteous people among them and he replied, “Yes, when wickedness is abundant.”      (Bukhari and Muslim)

The world of the Gog and Magog and their Friends will be a broken world with billions of people dead and billions being reduced to uselessness. It will be a world that the unbeliever will believe will be just a notch away from extinction so many will live by the ‘sword’. That is, many when faced with what their minds see as starvation and death or killing others just to live another day, they will opt for what their minds will believe as human practicality or kill before being killed. So in the Middle Eastern Area and surrounding areas one can see problems of population numbers and the almost total breakdown of society from the following hadiths.

‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr reported that the Prophet (pbh) said, “How will it be with you if you are left amongst the scum of people whose covenants and trusts are loose {because they are untrustworthy people with no regard for the truth} and who will differ and become like this”, and he interjoined his fingers. He asked, “What do you order me to do?” The Prophet (pbh) said, “Keep to what you know, and reject what appalls you, and mind your own affairs {business} and beware of public affairs.” {Lest you get drawn into heated and hateful disputes which will make the tongue deadlier than the sword and the heart to seek out revenge}        (Tirmidhi)

As we can see, society will be in quite a state of upheaval that many without faith would sell their own souls just for a piece of bread and peace and quiet without being hunted down like a beast in the forest. But where is the comfort of peace, contentment and quiet in a soul that has no or little faith or right guided belief? How can man, without DIVINE INTERVENTION by the sending of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) and the small creatures who will wipe out the Gog and Magog, live? So ALLAH will NOT abandon those who have righteous (correct belief) in their hearts and HE WILL grant the survivors their means to Paradise!


From: It Just Ain’t Going to Happen: A new look at Christianity and seeing the reality of the future closing in the immediacy of a grand and fair peace in Palestine – but that won’t really be the case.

Yes, forget the Quran and authentic hadiths for awhile! When one has the New Testament acting as a very good advertisement to become a sincere Muslim and investing time in trying to become a good Muslim, what do Christians say? Whatever they say, they should know that it is being placed in a record that does NOT LIE. Does that sound hopeful or does that sound threatening? After all, it comes from the New Testament so weigh that on your own scale of importance. And this too is covered in my writings.

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

He that says, I know him, and DOES NOT keep his commandments, is a liar, and truth is not in him.

He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked {behave in like manner as he behaved}.  I John (2: 3-4 & 6)

For therein is the righteousness of GOD {the eternal un-perverted TRUTH} revealed from faith to faith {down through the ages from prophet to prophet} as it is written, the Just {peoples} shall live by {the commands or rules of} faith.  Romans (1: 17)

If you love me keep my commandments.

And I shall pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter {prophet} that he may abide with you forever {that you should be raised up in his Ummah for Judgment}.    (John 14: 15-16)

So as the Quran says – it was only AFTER the fact that knowledge came to them and their puffed up vain disputes that THE WAY carried on by Jesus (pbh) entered into what even his immediate followers were so adamant about and that this was the time of the end that was drawing upon them on their very heals (the knowledge of the Pure WAY was being overthrown). In other words, as Paul had decreed, the wolves in sheep’s clothing who would seek to destroy the truth were soon to be lining up all over the place especially after the death of the prominent ones, including Peter and Paul happening before 70 AC.

And WE granted them Clear Signs in Affairs (of Religion – the Correct Pathway of belief and Behavior): it was only AFTER knowledge had been granted to them that they fell into schisms {wrangling disputes}, through insolent envy among themselves {arrogant hairsplitting}. Verily your LORD will judge between them on the Day of Judgment as to those matters in which they set up differences.                    Q (45: 17)

That is the big picture. The smaller picture showing more minute details can be gleaned from reading the various articles on this Website including article # 13 (The Crown and the Cross).

2. The focal point was Paul and it just so happened that I wanted to put in a time element between the Resurrection of Jesus (pbh) and the times of Paul’s preaching and his death and compare it to the verse in the Quran dealing with the turning point of the Christian debacle (calamity).

Paul remains an intriguing figure and one I think that is not very important for everyday worshipers but one who has been constantly put in the middle of the storm of controversy. As a Muslim, my job was to seek out the truth within set limits and present a more coherent historical view of what took place so very long ago. So, I didn’t look at the holy records as adversaries but as coordinating partners along with true history and to see if those things could be conceptualized and utilized.

For example, 2 Peter and Revelations were not written by Peter or John the Apostle. They were written by Peter’s secretary/disciple (2 Peter) and John the Presbyter (Revelations) respectively. However, that does not make them false as both of those books are important to give a quite revealing twist to the truth. 2 Peter declares the truth about Paul as any person who loves puzzles can figure out and Revelations discusses the monstrous whore (named as a city) which will be responsible for carrying out the defilements of Jesus’ Way.

The biggest champion of the so-called crucifixion on a superficial reading of the New Testament would be Paul. His writings existed BEFORE the Gospels were written and his writings later influenced certain dabblers in the art of forgery to make ‘peculiar’ editing’s of the Written Word.

However, Paul did NOT believe in the crucifixion and that is adequately expressed in his words which RING OUT JUST AS TRUE TODAY AS IN THE PAST! His words about the crucifixion are words of scorn and not praise. For he uses two very important words which are still valid to both parties involved: Jews and Christians. These words are: ‘Stumblingblock and Foolishness’.

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks (Gentiles) seek after wisdom:

 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a Stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks Foolishness.            1Cor. (1: 22-23)

To get at the truth one must dwell on it for some time. The Jews were adamant in their beliefs that Jesus was a hated, criminal imposter. When the Roman Empire decided to kind of embrace Christianity as its self image, Jewish declarations became insulting to the homespun hero of Rome (the new god-man or man-god) and there entered centuries of Jewish misery – as was predicted by Jesus (pbh).

Jewish blindness to the truth resulted in their being very much abused, scorned and hated throughout history. And what Jesus (pbh) declared of them as to tormenting and even killing their own prophets made them very angry against the truth-loving Jesus and still they continue to STUMBLE over this to this very day! Psychologically speaking, by pretending to side with the west they are taking their revenge against the very peoples who treated them as dogs in the past.

To the practical but earthy mind of the growing Christian thinkers, who until this day consider themselves a ‘glorious product of Greek thought and temperament’ and who cherished the thought that their man-god served them as a crowning point to their delusions (how fortunate for them that they could pursue the world and worldly lusts yet have such a high creature grant them eternal life and goodness just for saying a few words of faith), the notion of FOOLISHNESS can better be understood. Simply it means that that notion is downright FOOLISH besides being downright wrong – the notion that a god died for our sins as well as the doctrine of ‘vicarious atonement’.

Paul as well as every other person honestly involved in real religious thought believed in the CRUCIFIXION AS SOMETHING. That something is the ‘curtailment’ of a frivolous, meaningless life and a return to a remembrance of who we originally were by sacrificing oneself in duties of remembrance of the ONE GOD as well as prayer and fasting or in Arabic – The Great Jihad!

Curtailment does NOT mean becoming a hermit or Sufi saint or going around the world looking like a half-starved cat. It refers basically to the ‘Great Jihad’ which is the battle within every one’s inner self or soul.** So, one would expect that the New Testament would ask people who want to believe in Jesus (pbh) to carry their own cross in the pathway of Jesus (pbh) i.e. following him in a great Jihad. And it does!!!

Then said Jesus to his disciples, “If any man will come after me {follow me}, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.      Matthew (16: 24)

Anyway, Paul is much too complicated to follow and he shouldn’t be followed because he was no prophet. However, give credit where credit is due and so he did help pass on some knowledge about Prophet Muhammad (pbh) and even the notion that man existed on this planet in some form for a very, very long time – translated here as millions of years.

Wherefore GOD also gave them up to un-cleanliness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

Who {in the beginning} changed the truth of GOD into a lie {who desecrated the set order of the creation put forth by the GOD and caused bloodshed and mischief}, and worshipped and served the creature {the animal functions more than the spiritual nature of the original noble man-soul} more than {serving} the CREATOR, WHO is BLESSED FOREVER. Amen.

For this cause GOD gave them up unto vile afflictions {and torments}; for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.                                             Romans (1: 24-26)

Because the law works wrath {as in one willingly breaking the law laid down by the prophets}: for where there is no law {no prophet giving the WORD i.e. having existed to give the law}, there is no transgression.                Romans (4: 15)

(For until the law {before the law of Guidance brought by the prophets} sin {corruption – evil was indeed practiced} in the world; but sin IS NOT IMPUTED {on man} WHEN the LAW does NOT yet exist.   Romans (5: 13)

Ubayy bin Ka’ab declared from the knowledge he received from the Prophet (pbh) that all of mankind was assembled in separate groups giving them the understanding that they were to be made vicegerents on Earth {lords of the Earth} while imparting their wisdom and understanding, i.e. granting them power such that each individual (would be) completely and fully responsible for their actions.  (Hadith)

Therefore, no individual can absolve him or herself (by making excuses) from the responsibility of deviation from ALLAH’s WAY. It therefore becomes man’s duty to make use of all his facilities of the GIFTS granted to them to be able to discern or put up a struggle to discern TRUTH from ERROR.

Of course Paul’s declaration concerning the novice type of believer was correct in that he declared that they were NOT ready for meat but must be ‘fed’ milk. That is very wise because knowledge is like a bomb; it can move things in a hurry but it can also destroy things.

I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet are you able {to bear it}.   1Corinthians (3: 2)

3. The New Testament does paint a picture of Jesus (pbh) which admittedly is sparse but fortunately for us is basically, pretty clear. Throwing out the twisted forgeries which are basically a few words or sentences twisted around to form a certain ‘school of thought’, one can actually see the real Jesus (pbh) emerge.

A man who is quiet but supremely confident and very much well-aware of who he was and what job he had to perform comes out of the New Testament quite clearly. A man who was a highly favored servant of the ONE GOD, a well protected man, surrounded by angels, a man who had a miraculous nature of being a dominating original man – Vicegerent (but without stain {sin}) but one who had to eat food and of course expel the waste products of that food in the normal way. The normal way of the flesh is that way of the human being on the face of the Earth.

And every spirit that DOESN’T CONFESS that Jesus Christ is come in the Flesh is NOT of GOD: and this is that spirit of anti-christ, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now is already in the world.     1 John (4: 3)

As to the one who was really crucified, these articles along with several of my books discuss this point. The interested reader can find out about that. The point is that the person on the cross was not dressed in a loin cloth but actually ‘stark naked’! The position of Jesus (pbh) in the eyes of the ONE GOD is very high (as are all the prophets) and although these people did suffer hardships and toil, they were never humiliated as to be helpless and stark naked in front of a crowd of unruly gawkers.

As to the Last Supper, the New Testament contains only a drop in the sea. The Quran has a much better description of the Last Supper. The Last Supper occurs AFTER the so-called crucifixion and not before it for it is the last time that the disciples and Jesus as a group were together. Some saw him after this but not as a group.

Before the crucifixion according to the New Testament Jesus (pbh) already knew the future of what was going to take place. He told his Disciples only that of what he knew would be safe for them to hear and it is very telling (about his non-death) that he would meet them at a certain place and a certain time after a certain deed (crucifixion) was done. This was not a 50-50 chance or a gamble but a certainty!

And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and they followed, they were afraid; and he took again the twelve {into his confidence}, and began to tell them what things should happen to him.                              Mark (10: 32)

According to the New Testament after the ‘real’ last supper, Jesus (pbh) shares mysteries with his Disciples but probably tells them what to report and what to keep hidden so as not to damage the flock.

And he said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you {on the way to Jerusalem} that all things must be fulfilled, which were written {as prophecies} in the Law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me.

Then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the {meaning behind the} scriptures.         Luke (24: 44-45)

This can also go back to Paul in sensing his meaning of feeding the flock with ‘milk’ but not ‘meat’ as the flock is deemed to be better off practicing purity rather than dwelling on things not immediately appropriate to their station or helpful for their salvation.

And pursue not that of which you have no knowledge; for surely the hearing, the sight, the heart all of those shall be questioned (concerning this).   Q (17: 36)

Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls {of wisdom} before pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you.   (International Standard Version – Matthew (7: 6)

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe in a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.        2 Thessalonians (2: 11-12).

You have met this fate because you rejoiced on the earth in things other than the truth, and then exulted in it.”     Q (40:75)

So one can actually use the New Testament to justify his or her belief in the Islamic Faith as a Faith that is True, Just, Correct and EXPECTED! To repeat myself again, I will repeat several verses from the New Testament to make things doubly clear in going from FAITH to FAITH as Paul declared!

For therein is the righteousness of GOD {the eternal un-perverted TRUTH} revealed from faith to faith {down through the ages from prophet to prophet} as it is written, the Just {peoples} shall live by {the commands or rules of} faith.  Romans (1: 17)

If you love me keep my commandments.

And I shall pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter {prophet} that he may abide with you forever {that you should be raised up in his Ummah for Judgment}.    (John 14: 15-16)


From The Days of Innocence : Some talk about the dynamics of human interaction and comparative religion.

The key expression is ‘thinking’ because people can belong to organizations like a religion for basically no apparent reason except the one of ‘following the herd mentality’. That is not exactly how one can show he treasures a cherished object like free will or even rational thinking and certainly not a cherished belief system called religion.

A random search through the Web will find many so-called religious sites dealing with ludicrous charges and counter-charges from their so-called fans – fans that behave in a rude and often times insulting manner.

When I talk about the Quran, I’m not using it as an exclusive work but a work that gives us a lot of knowledge about the Old and New Testaments. The Quran, being GOD’s PURE, COMPLETE and UNCORRUPTIBLE WORD does NOT condemn the other scriptures as being malfunctionable but puts them in the proper perspective of still being able to convey an understandable message to their respective peoples BUT WHEN STUDIED WITH PROPPER CARE. The final result of course would be to acknowledge the last of the prophets Muhammad (pbh) with a very deep and abiding respect.

O you, to whom the Book had been given! Believe in the Book WE have sent down now, confirming the Book you already have with you; BELIEVE IN IT {AND SET YOUR PRACTICE BY IT} BEFORE WE distort faces and set them backwards, or lay down OUR Curse on them as WE laid OUR Curse on the Sabbath-breakers {turning them into apes and swine} – for the decision of ALLAH MUST BE CARRIED OUT.   Q (4: 47)

Miserable is the price for which they have sold their souls in that they deny (the revelation) which Allah has sent down, in insolent envy that Allah of His Grace should send it to any of His servants He pleases: Thus have they drawn on themselves Wrath upon Wrath. And humiliating is the punishment of those who reject Faith.     Q (2: 90)

The parable of those who reject Faith is as if one were to shout like a goat-herd, to things that listen to nothing but calls and cries: Deaf, dumb, and blind, they are void of wisdom.                                    Q (2: 171)


“But whosoever turns away from MY {universal} Message, verily for him is a life narrowed down {in less opportunities/awareness to seek out Baraka from the LORD to please HIM}, and WE shall raise him up {as punishment} blind on the Day of Judgment.”

He {the unfortunate one} will say: “O my LORD! Why have YOU raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)?”

(ALLAH) will say: “When OUR Signs came unto you, you disregarded them {as meaningless}: so {in turn} will you, this day, be disregarded.”    Q (20: 124-126)

Therefore, taking all of this into consideration when searching for the truth, the knowledge concerning the supposed crucifixion of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) as is found on this website is probably, without boast, the most definitive work on that subject ever complied by an average layman.

No man can serve two masters {be in two ways}; for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve {both} GOD and mammon {at one and the same time}.               Matthew (6: 24)

That seems to be the key – remembering that it takes both society and a remembrance of the Hereafter to achieve balance and harmony. To think of just the here and now is amateurish to those who profess a real belief in the Hereafter. So let’s be honest about things and stop making pretenses.

In society one can make laws that will appear as if they are a wonderful panacea for a suffering nation but after a few decades, things seem to change and they may actually be quite inadequate to handle the situation. One has to consider both the now and the hereafter when it comes to living a ‘higher’ standard and developing a more stable society.

The Prophet (pbh) once said, “Do not belittle any small act of kindness even if it is to pour water from your bucket into the vessel of the one who asks for it or to talk to your brother with a cheerful face.”     (Ahmad)

Acts that seem to be miniscule should NOT be judged as insignificant or undervalued. So, meeting a fellow Muslim with a smiling face and removing trash and blockage from the road gives great rewards. Perchance a small deed becomes a reason for the forgiveness of major sins. ALLAH thanks HIS slave for these small deeds of remembrance and pours HIS GRACE and FORGIVENESS on him.

The Prophet (pbh) said: “Once, a man saw the branch of a tree in the middle of a road. So, he said, ‘By Allah, I will remove this from the path of the Muslims so they may not be hurt.’ For this action, he was put in Paradise.”   (Muslim)

As the Prophet (pbh) said, “one who is devoid of mercy is not shown any mercy.”        (Muslim)


From What It’s All About: Discussion on some aspects of early Christianity and some early Islamic stuff.

So life is like a buried treasure in one aspect: it needs a treasure hunt to uncover the treasure. A treasure hunt doesn’t need to be fruitless but it does require physical, mental and spiritual work.

What good is the treasure, however, if one can’t do anything with it? Imagine being on a deserted island with the food and fresh water running out (state of life) and no hope for a rescue. Any treasure of jewels or money would be worthless because success means survival and drinking or eating money or jewels is not on the successful menu in the Hereafter as religious thinking goes.

People turn to religion for a variety of reasons of which some are logical and some are bizarre. Deep down inside there may be an uneasy feeling that just like a pregnant woman who has an urge to eat grass or dirt because of some strange chemical need of the body, religion or what people take to be religion also, in part, can function for the psyche of man in just this way.

Say: “Everyone acts according to his own disposition but your LORD KNOWS BEST who it is that is best guided on the WAY.”     Q (17: 84)

So the answer as I have stated before comes from the Quran in that a person is pre-disposed to move in certain beliefs or circles just like water is predisposed to run downhill in its natural state under natural laws.  That speaks of the natural way but as psychologists have noted amongst certain people, there is a tendency for their life’s chain to be kinked in some places causing certain behaviors to come to the surface.

When the two are married together, i.e. , when the pre-disposed feeling is married to the ‘kinked chain’ effect, one can virtually throw TRUTH out the window because the person will seek out that which will comfort his ego and not necessarily the TRUTH. This is because it would require him to fight his nefs (soul) in a war. It would require, as the New Testament says, one to carry one’s own cross just like it requires one to become serious during Ramadan in Islam.

And he that does not take {up} his own cross {striving to be better for the sake of GOD} and follow after me, is NOT worthy of me {being with me in my dominion}.                             Matthew (16: 24)

HE it is WHO enables you to traverse through land and sea; so that you even board ships; they sail with them with a favorable wind, and they rejoice thereat {in feeling good about themselves}; then comes a stormy wind and the waves come to them from all sides, and they think they are being overwhelmed: they cry unto ALLAH, sincerely offering (their) duty unto HIM saying, “If YOU do deliver us from this {life threatening condition}, we shall truly show our gratitude!”

But when HE delivers them, behold! They transgress insolently through the earth in defiance of right! O mankind! Your insolence is against your own souls – an enjoyment of the life of the present: in the end, to US is your return, and WE shall show you the truth of all that you did.      Q (10: 22-23)

Well that pretty much tackles Christianity, the world’s largest religion. But why not mention Islam and the history of some of the shady belief patterns that came from the minds of twisted individuals claiming to be Muslims?

For a fact, all religions have undergone attacks against their original doctrinal truths and Islam is not an exception. That is one of the main reasons that ALLAH has sent 124,000 prophets with Prophet Muhammad (pbh) being the LAST ONE this Earth shall ever see. And for this reason and this reason alone we should be aware that these are the last years (without putting a specific and exact number on it) of this age.

… If ALLAH had so willed, HE would {now} have made {returned you back as a} a single People, but HIS Plan is to test you in what HE has given you. So strive as in a race in ALL VIRTUES. The return of you all is to ALLAH; it is HE that will show you the truth of the matters in which you dispute.’ Q (5: 48)

So at least right-guided individuals can understand, that there has been only ONE GOD, ONE CREATOR for all the peoples and that HE in HIS INFINITE MERCY AND WISDOM did not leave anyone out of the ‘system’ for salvation. That system is the system of Divine Harmony and Unity when it comes to the TRUTH IN FAITH.

This way alone is MY RIGHT WAY. Therefore, you should follow this WAY and should NOT follow other ways lest they lead you astray from HIS {Most Perfect} WAY …                    Q (6: 153)

However, mankind has that deal of choice sometimes referred to as free will that allows him to accept or reject salvation for itself whereas the angels have no choice in the matter and are strictly regulated by their created essence as to being loyal beyond question to their CREATOR LORD. So mankind can end up feeding their own collective passions as to what turns them on whether it is real faith or any old phony invention that seems to work.

WE did indeed offer the Trust to the HEAVENS and the EARTH and the MOUNTAINS but they refused to undertake it being afraid thereof: but MAN undertook it: He was indeed unjust and foolish {in his presumptions}    Q (33: 72)

They (the Angels) fear their LORD, HIGH above them, and they do ALL that they are commanded.      Q (16: 50)

Islam as a religion is composed of human beings and so it falls under the trials and tribulations of human folly and greed like every other religion has. There is no doubt of this because Prophet Muhammad (pbh) discussed this in various ways. And it is common sense to know that flesh and blood human beings are in reality flesh and blood human beings – especially when they are born and not robotic machines.

What makes Islam different in some aspects than other religious affiliations is its completeness, its originality from the beginning and its signature. The signature of its claim to fame comes from three main areas: its originality of language, its BOOK preservation as well as the nature of Muhammad (pbh). That didn’t stop certain people, however, from trying to ‘claim’ prophethood at various times after Muhammad (pbh) but strong Islam could put these people down and for the most part eradicate their erroneous beliefs from spreading far and wide.

Abu Huraira reported ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “The way in which I may be compared with the {other} prophets is by a castle which was beautifully constructed {planned and set in order} but in which the place of one brick was left incomplete. Sightseers went round admiring the beauty of its construction with the exception of the place for that {one} brick. Now I have filled up the place of that brick. In me the building is complete and in me the Messengers are complete.”    (Bukhari and Muslim)


From Here Be Monsters: Some things about early Christianity and the knowledge that ALLAH knows what is in the secret chambers of men’s hearts.

From the article, We have lost the Battle but Won the War:

What a marvelous thing is opened up! And further opening up some wonders is the fact that in the Bigger Picture than the above quote from Matthew we get a foreshadowing of future events from the Old Testament, namely from Isaiah (pbh).

That is to say by this interpreted effect, ‘So you tricksters want but to play a game with ME? Be it so that I will divide your group into two camps of peoples called the Children of Israel – Jew and Christian – and cause you both to be dazzled by your insidious (sinister) and filthy  presumptions of ME’:

Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near ME with their mouths and with their tongues to honor ME but have REMOVED THEIR HEARTS FAR {AWAY} FROM ME AND THEIR FEAR TOWARDS ME IS TAUGHT BY THE PRECEPTS {MANUFACTURED LAWS} OF MEN:


Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD and their {manufactured} works are in the dark and they say, “Who {can} see us and who {can} know us {as to what secret, defiling and twisted things we do}?

Surely your turning of things UPSIDE DOWN {AGAINST THE TRUTH} shall be esteemed {likened to} as the potter’s clay: for shall the work {that what he so cleverly manufactured as lies} say of him that made it, “He made me not?” or shall the thing framed say of him {who falsely made falsehoods} that framed it, “He had no understanding {of what he was doing}?”  Isaiah (29: 13-16)

Specifically that prophecy deals with those two religions (Judaism and Christianity – ‘this people’) that came before Islam. However, in general it could apply to all religious sects or derivatives thereof that have tried to play fast and loose with Divine Scripture and the interpretation of the same.

On top of that the Arabs who are human beings and have like all humans human weaknesses, especially if not cleaving to Islam, have things to answer for also. An example of this is the one who would claim to be a sharing partner with the ONE GOD. That is to say those who believe themselves to be ‘king of kings’ thus taking on an aspect of the DIVINE are in fact accursed in this world and the next.

A while ago, one non-Arab claiming Islam who ruled in Iran and is now dead claimed such a lunacy while one Arab in Libya has also done the same. These barbarians are not worth the ground they walk on but have caused untold human suffering towards the believers from their demented stays on this planet. So when all is said and done it can be truly said, “Yes, it is true. HERE BE MONSTERS”!

From The Evils That Men Do: Contains a good article from Maududi.

‘Those who deny ALLAH and His apostles, and (those who) wish to separate ALLAH from His apostles, saying: ‘We believe in some but reject others ‘ and (those who) wish to take a course midway.

They are in truth (equally) unbelievers and WE have prepared for the unbelievers a humiliating punishment.”            Q (4: 150-151)

This has also been made clear for those who read the Bible. Even in its imperfections, the Bible shows that ONLY ONE IS SAVIOR and that salvation is an ‘ACTIVE’ thing and not a passive thing. In other words, those who in their hearts really desire salvation must believe in ONE GOD ONLY – the ONE WHO has no partners or in need of any helpers to accomplish HIS PLAN.

I, I am the LORD, and beside{s} ME there is NO savior       Isaiah (43: 11)

Secondly, salvation must earnestly be sought after and struggled for. Numerous hints about this are given in the New Testament in various places like the epistle of James and the expressions of ‘carrying one’s own cross’ to name but a few. Therefore, there is NO SUCH THING as declaring with the mouth but a mindless heart, “I believe in ‘him’ (Jesus) and hence I am saved.”

I’m not arguing against the idea that there are hundreds of millions of people who are faithful to their respective philosophies and who have some connections with holy writ. However, this planet has close to 7 billion people and many of those people belong to something or other and find not the time or the inclination to look very carefully with great caution, inspection and care at what is called FAITH.

Most people are too busy to read much less understand their own faiths but depend upon others to lead them in defining what their faith is all about. And if those ‘others’ are themselves corrupt, they will spread their own corruptions amongst the flock. That is the bane for taking such a sacrosanct subject and making it gloriously banal which leads to blindness and foolish notions.

Jesus (pbh) nor his mother became blessed by their own willfulness or power (and they did both acknowledge that THERE IS NO STRENGTH OR POWER EXCEPT IN ALLAH while they pledged their souls to HIM while being of desire to be accountable to THE LORD’S WAY which is similar in saying to THE WAY or that which is called ‘the rightly guided religion’.

So we can sense why Jesus (pbh) and his mother are so highly valued and honored in this world and the next as is declared in Islam. We can also sense, why Jesus (pbh) is greatly prized and having his name placed in splendor and given that great position of exaltedness rightly attributed to him in Islam.

It has also been proven that the human race pulls together as ONE UNIT or else competition, various stratagems and even decadent and abusive warfare (local and regional squabbles) based on jealousies and paranoia will prevail. Therefore, ONE WAY and ONE BEHAVIOR PATTERN MUST REIGN SUPREME.

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) said, “What would you do when the son of Mary would descend amongst you and would lead you as one amongst you” {as to your religion}? Ibn Abi Dhi’b on the authority of Abu Huraira narrated, “Your leader amongst you. Ibn Abi Dhi’b said, “Do you know what the words, “He would lead as one amongst you” mean? I said, “Explain these to me.” He said, “He would lead you according to the Book {Quran} of your LORD and the Sunnah of your Apostle (pbh) {Muhammad}.     (Muslim)


And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.   Q (3: 85)

Also, it would be of the utmost benefit to have ONE HUMANITY SPEAK AND UNDERSTAND ONE HARMONIUS LANGUAGE.

Ibn ‘Abbas reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “Love the Arabs for three reasons: because I am an Arab, the Quran is Arabic {sent down in the Arabic Language} and the inhabitants of Paradise will speak Arabic.”    (Baihaqi transmitted it in Shu’ab al-iman)

In addition to the above, it would make no sense to live in a place, an EARTHLY PARADISE, being boxed-in by foul smelling slums or to be living under the fear of exploding volcanoes, life-threatening meteorites, super tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, famines, disease, wars and rumors of wars. Therefore, the Earth must be made subservient to its principal inhabitants – the human being – in undergoing a transformation to a NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH.

Through a careful understanding of scripture, one can partially visualize the Messianic Age but there is more. The more is the idea of ‘death’ and being raised up to THE DAY OF JUDGMENT to receive the news of SALVATION (eventual), or being cast off as one of the ungrateful ones – ungrateful as to one having many chances but refusing to turn to his LORD. Hence, the stigma of the HELL-FIRE BECOMING A REALITY.

O you, to whom the Book had been given! Believe in the Book WE have sent down now, confirming the Book you already have with you; BELIEVE IN IT {AND SET YOUR PRACTICE BY IT} BEFORE WE distort faces and set them backwards, or lay down OUR Curse on them as WE laid OUR Curse on the Sabbath-breakers  {turning them into apes and swine} – for the decision of ALLAH MUST BE CARRIED OUT.   Q (4: 47)

The son of man {Jesus the Christ (pbh)} shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

And {the angels} shall cast them {these hypocritical and destructive souls} into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.      Matt (13: 41-42)

This makes a lot of sense. It is rather like the person who receives a very highly and extremely valuable ‘GIFT’ (FITRAH OR RIGHT GUIDANCE FROM THE BEGINNING IMPRINTED ON HIS SOUL) from his LORD but throws this GIFT into the trash resulting in him/her becoming or declaring himself/herself UNGRATEFUL NOT ONLY TO HIS/HER LORD BUT FOR THE GIFT OR THE ‘SECRET KEY’ TOWARDS THE BEGINNING OF UNLOCKING THE PROVERBIAL DOORS OF SALVATION AS PATTERNED OUT FROM THE PLAN SET FORTH FROM HE WHO IS THE CREATOR OF ALL.

And that is NOT all. Throughout the history of man’s creation, ONE MAN has been given that HOLY STATION of being spokesperson for the HUMAN RACE – ‘The Original Solution from the beginning and the Final Solution’ at the end– and that man’s name is MUHAMMAD (pbh).

Jabir b. ‘Abdullah reported, “I heard the Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) say, “A section of my people will not cease fighting for the Truth and will prevail till the Day of Resurrection. He said, “Jesus son of Mary would then descend and their (Muslim) commander {al-Mahdi} would invite him to come and lead them in prayer {as the higher one in rank based on the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (pbh) dictates} but he {Jesus} will say, “No” {as} some amongst you are commanders over some (amongst you). THIS IS THE HONOR FROM ALLAH FOR THIS UMMAH.      (Muslim)

Abu Huraira reported: Meat was one day brought to the Messenger of Allah (pbh) and a foreleg was offered to him, a part which he liked. He sliced with his teeth a piece out of it and said, “I shall be the leader of mankind on the Day of Resurrection. Do you know why? Allah would gather in one plain the earlier and the later (of the human race) on the Day of Resurrection. Then the voice of the proclaimer would be heard by all of them and the eyesight would penetrate through all of them and the Sun would come near. People would then experience a degree of anguish, anxiety and agony which they shall not be able to bear and they shall not be able to stand. Some people would say to the others, “Don’t you see in which trouble you are in? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken you? Why don’t you find one who should intercede for you with your LORD?” Some would say to the others, “Go to Adam.”  And they would go to Adam and say, “O Adam, you are the father of mankind. Allah created you by His own Hand and breathed into you of His spirit and ordered the angels to prostrate before you. Intercede for us with your LORD. Don’t you see in what (trouble) we are in? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us?” Adam would say, “Verily, my LORD is angry to an extent to which He had never been angry before nor would He be angry afterward. Verily, He forbade me (to go near) that tree and I disobeyed Him. I am concerned with my own self. Go to someone else; go to Noah.” They would come to Noah and would say, “O Noah, you are the first of the Messengers (sent) on the earth (after Adam), and Allah named you as a ‘Grateful Servant,’ intercede for us with your LORD. Don’t you see in what (trouble) we are in? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us?” He would say, “Verily, my LORD is angry today as He had never been angry before, and would never be angry afterwards. There had emanated a curse from me with which I cursed my people. I am concerned only with myself, I am concerned only with myself; you better go to Abraham. They would go to Abraham and say, “You are the apostle of Allah and His Friend amongst the inhabitants of the earth; intercede for us with your LORD. Don’t you see in which (trouble) we are in? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us?” Abraham would say to them, “Verily, my LORD is today angry as He had never been angry before and would never be angry afterwards, and he would mention his lies (and then say), “I am concerned only with myself, I am concerned only with myself. You better go to someone else; go to Moses.” They would come to Moses and say, “O Moses, you are Allah’s messenger; Allah blessed you with His messengership and His conversation {talking with you directly} amongst {all} people. Intercede for us with you LORD. Don’t you see in what (trouble) we are in? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us?” Moses would say to them, “Verily, my LORD is angry as He had never been angry before and would never be angry afterwards. I, in fact, killed a person whom I had not been ordered to kill. I am concerned with myself, I am concerned with myself. You better go to Jesus.” They would come to Jesus and would say, “O Jesus, you are the messenger of Allah and you conversed with people in the cradle. You are His word which He sent down upon Mary and you are the spirit from Him; so intercede for us with your LORD. Don’t you see the (trouble) we are in? Don’t you see the (misfortune) that has overtaken us?” Jesus would say, “Verily, my LORD is angry today as He had never been angry before or would ever be angry afterwards. He mentioned no sin of his. (He simply said), “I am concerned with myself, I am concerned with myself; you go to someone else; better go to Muhammad.” They would come to me and say, “O Muhammad, you are the Messenger of Allah and the last of the prophets {sent to mankind}. Allah has pardoned you all of your previous and later sins. Intercede for us with your LORD. Don’t you see the (trouble) we are in? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us?” “I shall then set off and come below the THRONE and fall down prostrate before my LORD; then Allah would reveal to me and inspire me with some of His Praises and Glorifications which He had not revealed to anyone before me.” He would then say, “Muhammad, raise your head; ask and it would be granted; intercede and intercession would be accepted.” I would then raise my head and say, “O my LORD, my people, my people.” It would be said, “O Muhammad, bring in by the right gate of Paradise those of your people who would have no account to render.” They would share with the people some other door besides this door. The Holy Prophet then said, “By Him in Whose Hand is the life of Muhammad, verily the distance between two leaves of the Paradise is as great as between Makkah and Hajar, or as between Makkah and Busra.   (Muslim)

Abu Sa’id reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “I shall be pre-eminent among the descendants of Adam on the Day of Resurrection, and this is NO BOAST; and in my hand will be the Banner of Praise, and this is NO BOAST. There will be no prophet, Adam or any other, who will not be under my banner. I shall be the first from whom the Earth will be cleft open, and this is NO BOAST.”   (Tirmidhi)

And he {this Messiah} shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war any more.  Isaiah (2: 2-4)

Verily Jesus the son of Mary will descend amongst you as a just judge. And so {he} will break the cross and kill the pigs, and wealth will become so abundant that no one will accept it. A {single} prostration that day will be more beloved to a believer than the {whole natural} world and everything that it contains.                                                    (Bukhari and Muslim)

As can be seen, the saved part of humanity will be united as ONE PEOPLE:

And the LORD shall be KING OVER ALL THE EARTH: in that day shall there be ONE LORD, and HIS NAME ONE {by name, by religion (Islam), by practice (Sunnah), by a universal language and by concept}.     (Zechariah 14:9)

They shall not hurt nor destroy in MY entire holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, {just} as the waters cover the sea.

And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse {this word ‘Jesse’ is a corrupted form of the prophet Ishmael (pbh) representing the Arab line. The Arab line of prophethood ended with the last prophet – Muhammad (pbh) who being a prophet for the WHOLE WORLD FOR NOW AND THE WHOLE WORLD TO COME} which shall stand for an ensign {STANDARD PRACTICE} of the people; to it shall the Gentiles {NON-MUSLIMS EAGERLY} seek: and his rest {The job of the Messiah is finished and he becomes that installed king put over that congregation of souls promised Paradise} shall be glorious.            Isaiah (11: 9-10)

So as one can see, when worldly cares are minimized, the light of Truth shines forth brightly but those who are blinded in their lusts for earthly treasures tend to think only for their selfish and greedy desires and think not of what will happen to them in the GRAVE.

If only they would have thought out their actions as to the Straight Way and loved ALLAH’s Prophet (pbh) more than just eating, drinking and trying to establish an empire, would they have been eligible for success. But some have sold their souls for a miserable gain and will have nothing but despair and regrets in the afterlife.

The Islamic way of life can be revived and reconstructed again and again with the help of the Quran and the traditions if ever, God forbid, the freshness of its true spirit wanes. The world no longer requires any new Prophet to revive Islam to its pristine glory. It is enough to have among us the learned people who know the Quran and the traditions of the Prophet and who are able to apply their teachings to their own lives and stimulate others to adopt and apply them in their lives as well. This is how the stream of Islam will continue to flow, refreshing the eternal thirst of mankind.”

From The Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy: This is perhaps my best article in discussing the paradise on the Earth from a comparative religious sense while showing that indeed! The records are ONE!

What do the records tell us about the Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy?

Everything starts with Allah (SWT) and He set His System in motion when and in the manner of His Choosing. To Him belong all things that ever came forth. He is the One Who controls all things and He is The One, The Dominate Who is in control of all time, space, conditions and dimensions. He is called in one of Paul’s epistles as the Great UNKNOWN and as He has declared in His Word the Quran ‘no just estimate’ do they (the creation including man) have of Him and that Far, Far is He Above the common thoughts of man.

They do not have a just estimate of ALLAH, for ALLAH is Powerful and Mighty.                                    Q (22: 74)

For Allah set forth His Divine Plan in all of its glory, splendor and perfection from the beginning. A Plan so perfect and complete, the minds of men, jinns and angels could not conceive of its beauty and perfection.

He placed in His Most Perfect System pathways that went beyond what mankind could ever hope to conceive of. Every creature has its pathway including man. In only dealing with one man while forgetting all of the creation, we sense that the varied pathways taken for just this one man can lead further to an infinite number of pathways – each with its own rules and consequences, rewards and punishments, for his uplifting or degradation.

It is much like the circulatory system of the human body. This system goes from arteries and veins and breaks down into a myriad of capillary systems then to smaller elements such that it appears to the untrained eye that a near infinite number of pathways exist for nourishment to reach the vast number of cells in the human body.

A poor example no doubt but now multiply this complexity for the billions of people that have walked the Earth without paying attention to the other creatures, known and unknown,  and the idea of a vast infinity where mankind is concerned becomes evident as well as the feeling of being awed by His UNLIMITED POWER.

So, in the beginning THE MASTER PLANNER made PERFECTION marked down to the slightest of details accounting for every atom or sub-particle of the atom to come into existence and then on to its varied complex journeys. And that only deals with the infinitely small physical aspect of this universe! And in this Plan there appeared every highway (pathway) to be taken with its own special guardians guarding every conceivable way and the awe and wonder is that there was no extra unused pathways created nor were there any lack of pathways made. That is to say that there appeared NO excess and NO insufficiency of pathways made.  Allah has no need to add on to or subtract from His Original Plan because the Perfect Plan needs no tinkering or adjusting.

That through these two prophets who were but mortal men and through their illustrious examples and teachings, man could seek out His GRACE for forgiveness, like our father Adam asked for and received, and His MERCY that would allow mankind to enter into Eternal Salvation.

For without that MERCY from HIM no man could enter into Salvation. For even a man without sin CANNOT FIND SALVATION WITHOUT ALLAH’S MERCY. And so the importance of one following the other – Grace and Mercy – is likened to those two prophets who came and showed the Way of Salvation. First comes Mercy for what is the sense of the creation without Mercy? Then comes Grace for Grace leads to Forgiveness. Then comes Mercy again because without Mercy THERE IS NO SALVATION. And according to Isaiah (pbh) the Messiah will get a double reward and so what is wrong with that?

But the reader may ask, “What about this Law of Grace and Mercy?” How can the depth of that be known as it remains a mystery in its full scope? Yet some things have been given to mankind to know if they would study the records as they should be studied.

Those to whom We have given the Book study it as it should be studied: they are the ones that believe therein; those who reject faith therein – the loss is their own.   Q (2: 121)

And this Law of Grace and Mercy forms the creed of Salvation as was planned before the foundations of the Earth were laid out. Such is the Power and Might and Wisdom of Allah.

This is discussed in the Holy records and we are privileged by being given a very small glimpse of it. The Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy are but a gift or a favor from the Creator Lord. This is shown and this is proven from the records. Not only that, but some of the previous unsolvable puzzles from prophets Daniel (pbh) and Ezekiel (pbh) become opened up and understood (a very risky thing) and this too will show that the heaven (paradise) on Earth has a relationship to the Heaven (PARADISE) in the Sky.

Of course lots of things can be added to this discourse but as an article it is best to keep some form of shortness. So the plan is to discuss these things by bringing in a few of the proofs (bring forth your evidence if you are telling the truth). It is also noted that a complex subject is best served by making it more simplified and easier to digest for those who wish to ponder.

It is only appropriate to begin with Allah’s Glorious Word, the Quran, to try and understand the Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy. Words without support or evidence become worthless so now we look for support for this idea.

What is with you must vanish: What is with Allah will endure. And We will reward those who practice fortitude according to their best deeds. Whosoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, provided he is a believer, We will certainly grant him to live a pure life in this world and We will reward such people (in the Hereafter) according to their best deeds.      Q (16: 96-97)

The future kingdom on Earth led by the righteous teacher, Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) must by the Ordainment of Allah become established whereby souls are allowed to purify themselves so that they may be received into the Heavens for the Day of Judgment. And based on their records that they bring forth, the fruit of those labors shall add to the weight of their goodness or lack thereof so that they may be written into the Book of Life or rejected.

For it is given in the New Testament in the Epistle to the Hebrews  that the pattern is set in this One Way whereby the people at that time will be united under One Banner, One Religion, One Book, One Practice (Sunnah) and even in One Language worshiping in faith and purity without discord.

For this is the Covenant that I will make with the House of Israel {servants of Allah}. After those days, said the LORD, I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God and they shall be to ME a people.

And they shall not teach every man his neighbor and every man his brother saying, “Know the LORD”: for all shall know ME, from the least to the greatest.

For I will be Merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their inequities will I remember No More.   Heb (8: 10-12)

Ibn ‘Abbas reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “Love the Arabs for three reasons: because I am an Arab, the Quran is Arabic {sent down in the Arabic Language} and the inhabitants of Paradise will speak Arabic.”    (Baihaqi transmitted it in Shu’ab al-iman)

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.   Q (3: 85)

This One Way, being the Way throughout the history of that which is called religion and being interpreted in Arabic, is Islam. Even as Jesus (pbh) declared as to the One Way:

Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that enters not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other Way, the same is a thief and a robber.    John (10: 1)

Yet Daniel (pbh) declared a time-frame of a little bit before this blessed kingdom on Earth is truly established in that he declared:

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up {by the Anti-christ}, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.         Daniel (12: 10-12)

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “When … learning is acquired for other than a religious purpose, a man obeys his wife and is unfilial towards his mother, brings his friend near and drives his father off,… singing girls and stringed instruments make their appearance, wines are drunk, and the last members of this people curse the first ones, look at that time for a violent wind, an earthquake, being swallowed up by the earth, metamorphosis, pelting rain, and signs following one another like bits of a neckless falling one after the other when its string is cut.   (Tirmidhi)

O you, to whom the Book had been given! Believe in the Book We have sent down now, confirming the Book you already have with you; believe in it before We distort faces and set them backwards, or lay down Our Curse on them as We laid Our Curse on the Sabbath-breakers  {turning them into apes and swine} – for the decision of Allah must be carried out.   Q (4: 47)

And Jesus (pbh) declared this also when he stated:

The son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.      Matt (13: 41-42)

And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him (Jesus) before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them.   Q (4: 159)

But also in the Heavens as it mimics the Earth, do we find the doors closing on some as the Prophet (pbh) himself has said about those coming to his Pond to drink of the Life giving waters and that some of those will be snatched away by the angels such that the Prophet (pbh) will be told that he did not know what those people did when he left the Earth.

Shal b. Sa’d reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “I shall go to the Pond before you; he who comes to me will drink, and he who drinks will never thirst. Folk whom I know and who know me will come down to me, but something will come between them and me. I shall say that they belong to me, but I shall be told that I do not know what innovations they have produced since I departed from them. I shall then say, ‘Destruction, destruction to those who have made changes since my departure’!”    (Bukhari and Muslim)

So also will it be with Jesus the Son of Mary:

Many will say to me in that day, lord, lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?

And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.     Matt (7: 22-23)

So in the Book of Daniel (pbh) we are given a small time-frame for the purification to come such that nothing foul or repugnant or deceiving will survive to pollute the blessed kingdom given to him by HIS LORD.

And that kingdom on Earth, those remaining after the purge and those born into the era of Jesus (pbh) before his death, shall contain the blessed souls forming a paradise on Earth.



And remember, Jesus the Son of Mary said, “O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming {the truth in} the Taurat (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings {Good News} of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad. But when he {Jesus} came to them {the Jews} with clear Signs, they said, “This is evident sorcery!”   Q (61: 6)

And this Prophet (pbh) came and established by Allah’s Will the completion of the Faith and this is the Faith (Islam) and the Quran is the Book and Muhammad’s Sunnah is the Way that shall be followed and enforced in this blessed kingdom given to the Messiah (pbh).

And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him (Jesus) before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them.   Q (4: 159)

Verily in this (Quran) is a Message for {any} peoples who would (truly) worship Allah {The ONE and ONLY GOD}.    Q (21: 106)

Verily those who plight their fealty to you {Muhammad} plight their fealty to Allah: The Hand of Allah is over their hands: Then anyone who violates his oath, does so to the harm of his own soul, and anyone who fulfils what he has Covenanted with Allah, Allah will soon reward him a great Reward.      Q (48: 10)


From It’s a Fact of Life: Comparative religion

Our Christian brothers, for example, when they want to show something common in both Islam and Christianity, usually spend 95% for their side and 5% for Islam and consider that fair and balanced! To me that is neither fair nor balanced but that is just me. Furthermore, I like to add a little ‘meat’ to my sandwich as they say and so when I get on a particularly sticky topic, I would prefer if I could make a solid stab at covering it and giving the reader some ‘depth’ to chew on.

The last article about the Non-Crucifixion was only about 7,000 words long and it only scratched the surface. But what a surface it scratched! Reading the book The Non-Crucifixion of Jesus and the article The Crown and the Cross to mention just a few things will put the reader in a greater frame of mind.

So in truth it could be said that some people deep down inside the vastness of their soul liked the idea of pagan concepts over reality. Perhaps it made their life juicier or more colorful. But in the end they will be answerable for the ‘systems’ that they indulged in and created as opposed to their particular messenger’s wisdom and truth.

If one can recall, there have been around 124,000 prophets sent to mankind. Hence, one can get the picture that the last straw of the pagans trying to protect themselves against their LORD will be to declare, quite foolishly because of the records kept, that they somehow were misled by circumstances. Therefore, Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) according to that warped logic has to share the blame. The reason for this is that supposedly he didn’t make things clear.

That thought is utter nonsense and a blatant lie!

WE did not send an apostle except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) CLEAR to them. Now ALLAH leaves straying those whom HE pleases and guides whom HE pleases: and HE is EXAULTED IN POWER, FULL OF WISDOM.          Q (14: 4)

When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said: “Now have I come to you with Wisdom, and in order to make CLEAR to you some of the (points) on which you dispute: therefore fear Allah and obey me.             Q (43: 63)

Both the Old and New Testaments declare that this is like a dog returning to its own vomit.

First from the Old Testament:

As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.   Proverbs (26: 11)

Next from the New Testament:

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, the dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed {clean} to her wallowing in the mire {filth}.   2Peter (2: 21-22 – a pseudepigraph not written by Peter as many would have you believe but probably written several decades after his death and possibly by his secretary)

By looking at Q (14: 4) together with Q (40: 75) and one of the sayings of Paul found in 2 Thessalonians, we can get a very strong feeling that ALLAH is in TOTAL CHARGE and HE AND HE ALONE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING FROM ALL THAT CAME FROM BEFORE AND ALL THAT WILL COME AFTER.

According to Paul:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe in a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.        2 Thessalonians (2: 11-12).

“You have met this fate because you rejoiced on the earth in things other than the truth, and then exulted in it.”     Q (40:75)


From It Is What It Is

Surprisingly, the New Testament gives the death-knell for the teachings of Jesus (pbh) and presumably every other prophet if this is a ‘universal thing’, when something vital (THE SUNNAH) is allowed to go astray. This particular verse in the New Testament, Matthew (7: 6), is very deep in the notion as between followers of truth and followers of twisted inventions. And by definition and historical accuracy it is not only a truism it is also a universal truth. Therefore, one can also look at it from another side and see the importance of keeping the true Sunnah alive given by that prophet and NOT moving away from the road of ‘righteousness’ and thus falling into grey and black areas thus creating a quagmire against truth.

So one can imagine these “pearls” being like fragile glass can be trampled upon, twisted out of proportion and even used to set forth anti-truths to wipe out the real truths as to the inventions of faulty religious sects, philosophies and beliefs. Such is the mischievousness of some men and these are those who are ‘devils’ in the human flesh as they cause TRUTH to be trampled, blood to be spilled and harmony to be torn apart.

No disaster strikes except by permission of ALLAH. And whoever believes in ALLAH – HE will guide his heart. And ALLAH is KNOWING of ALL things. (Qur’an 64:11)

And this is the condemnation that LIGHT is come into the world and men {who used to love darkness} loved darkness {as was their preference from of old} rather than {the} LIGHT because their deeds {judged by THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN JUDGE} were EVIL.    John (3: 19)  That is they preferred to acknowledge what appealed to them over the logical truth and therefore, glorified their misdoings over that what was right.

Dhu Mikhbar told that he heard Allah’s Messenger (pbh) say, “You will make a secure peace with the Byzantines, then {both} you and they will fight an enemy behind you and you will be victorious, take booty, and be safe. You will then return and alight {come down} in a meadow with mounds and one of the Christians will raise the cross and say, ‘The cross has conquered.’ One of the Muslims will become angry and smash it and the Byzantines will act treacherously and prepare for battle.” Some transmitters added, “The Muslims will then make for their weapons and will fight, and Allah will honor that band with martyrdom.”   (Abu Dawud)

This among other things, if the news can be believed, has caused the Arabian Peninsula  to a look to ‘western’ strengths in combating certain fomenting and destabilizing powers from wrecking so-called havoc. In other words, certain semi-secret treaties are in place to combat terrorism or terroristic villainies whether they be political or fanatical as well as social-political upheavals that would act as destabilizers in the region.

From They Also Serve Who Stand and Wait

But society is society and it keeps getting in the way of meaningful communication of just what is important and what is not. However, one never knows what chord of the heart can be touched so the ‘presenter’ just hopes from ALLAH that he or she is helping to make a difference.

There are other websites out there that present tales of events but are NOT linked up between other relevant events and other so-called religions. So when one calls out about GOD’s LOVE for mankind does one usually consider the good JEW, the good CHRISTIAN and the good MUSLIM representing man’s development and salvation? Obviously, the answer to that is NO!

When all is said and done, it can only be said that man, who is his own worst enemy, has by his lust, greed, selfishness, arrogance and false pride, turned away from the LIGHT in varying degrees causing his own foolishness to come down on his head. Can one make the dead to hear even when they are sitting at your own table? So if those who are dead persist in pursuing pipedreams, then the dead will have to bury the dead.

But Jesus said unto him, “Follow me and let the dead bury their dead.”                Matthew (8: 22)

Truly you cannot cause the Dead to listen nor can you cause the Deaf to hear the call {to truth} especially when they turn back in retreat.

Nor can you be a guide to the Blind (to prevent them) from straying: only those who you will get to listen {will be those} who believe in OUR SIGNS so they {will} submit.                            Q (27: 80-81)

So those who claim a great love for their scriptures should be tested especially by the inner self to see if they are seeing a truer picture of REALITY or just a narrow but faulty interpretation. That is for those who can. The others seemingly depend upon ‘higher authorities’ to deliver the goods. Therefore, without much independent thought, they follow their ‘religious guides’ like yes men and believe what is being told them like sheep following blindly the shepherd.

Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “Your appointed period in relation to that of the peoples who have passed away is just the time between the afternoon prayer and sunset. A comparison between you and the Jews and Christians is like a man who employed laborers and said, ‘Who will work for me till midday for a qurat each?’ The Jews worked till midday for a qurat each and then he said, ‘Who will work for me from midday till the afternoon prayer for a qurat each?’ The Christians worked from midday till the afternoon prayer for a qurat each and then he said, ‘Who will work for me from the afternoon prayer till sunset for two qurat each?’ I assure you that you are the ones {O Muslims} who work from the afternoon prayer till the sunset and that you will have the reward twice over. The Jews and the Christians were angry and said, ‘We have done more work and received less pay,’ but ALLAH MOST HIGH asked, ‘Have I wronged you in any respect regarding what was due to you?’ When they admitted that HE had NOT, ALLAH MOST HIGH said, ‘It is MY extra favor which I grant to whosoever I will.’    (Bukhari)

What is happening here is quite an irrational phenomenon whereby when the ‘lights go out’ even close neighbors, friendly, smiling, helpful neighbors may turn against each other over perceived grievances and start mass killings and go on a rampage of bloodshed, rape and terror. Hence, what was hidden in the depth of the heart was unleashed and became a rampaging monster.

In the quietude of someone’s home, this seems far away and unreal but historical evidence proves otherwise. So mass murder, looting, rape and clan versus clan, tribe versus tribe can and has sprung forth to take ‘perceived revenge’.

So what happens when the Great Signs come and the ‘dark soul’ fed by the whisperings of Satan emerge? This is yet another reason and a very good reason for people to turn to their LORD, the ONE GOD in earnest devotion and seek out HIS PROTECTION.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) said, “The famine would NOT break out because of drought but there would be famine despite heavy rainfall as nothing would grow from the Earth.     (Muslim)

So in retrospect, when the ‘lights go out’ on mankind and he is being tossed to and fro in fear, will he remember his LORD or will he curse in darkness the LIGHT he so stubbornly refused to follow?

Soon will WE show them OUR SIGNS in the (furthest) regions (of the Earth) and in their own souls until it becomes manifestly clear to them that this is the TRUTH. Is it not enough that your LORD does witness ALL THINGS?    Q (41: 53)

From All the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men

It is true that we are not given the exact times of these future events but the wisdom comes from recognizing the closeness of these occurrences.

So common sense and a good dose of patience with a lot of persistence thrown in at getting at the facts are the medicines needed to keep the wolf away from the door.

“And do not insult {by taunting} those whom they worship besides GOD, lest they insult GOD wrongfully without knowledge. Thus, have WE made fair-seeming to each people its own doings {ways}; then to their LORD is their return and HE shall then inform them of all that they used to do”.                                Quran (6:108)

Narrated ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said, “Who among you considers the wealth of his heirs dearer to him than his own wealth?” They replied, “O Allah’s Apostle! There is none among us but loves his own wealth more.” The Prophet said, “So his wealth is whatever he spends (in Allah’s Cause) during his life (on good deeds) while the wealth of his heirs is whatever he leaves after his death.”

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam: I asked the Prophet (for some money) and he gave me, and then again I asked him and he gave me, and then again I asked him and he gave me and he then said, “This wealth is (like) green and sweet (fruit), and whoever takes it without greed, Allah will bless it for him, but whoever takes it with greed, Allah will not bless it for him, and he will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied. And the upper (giving) hand is better than the lower (taking) hand.”

Then do you see such a one as takes as his god his own vain desire? ALLAH has knowing (him as such) left him astray and sealed his hearing and his heart (and understanding) and put a cover on his sight. Who then will guide him after ALLAH (has withdrawn Guidance)? Will you not then receive admonition?    Quran (45: 23)

From We Have Lost the Battle but Won the War

And he who brings the Truth and he who confirms (and supports it) – such are the men who do right.     Q (39: 33?)

But you {must} first seek the Kingdom of GOD, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS {Good Pleasure}; and all these {marvelous} things shall be added unto you.   Matt. (6: 33)

So we can see that in reality there are no loopholes, no hits or misses, no escape and no faulty cracks happening in the system set forth. It is a Perfect Plan and a Perfect Test and it perfectly weeds out what has been chosen to be weeded out.

Therefore, when the believers and non-believers are vying for what has been called the ‘Eternal Home of Happiness’ or better known as The Hereafter, the pretenders better known as the ‘foolish’ or the arrogant ones who wouldn’t listen to Guidance from on High but reveled in ridiculous guidance from below will be caught in their own trap because in their blindness, they have built their own house of horrors with their own hands.

“When we say that the Word {Jesus}, who is the first-birth of God, was produced without sexual union, and that He, Jesus Christ, our Teacher, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended into heaven, we propound {we are saying or believing} nothing different from what you believe {in your pagan religion} regarding those whom you esteem {as} sons of {of the great God} Jupiter.” Justin Martyr, First Apology, 21

You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,


Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near ME with their mouths and with their tongues to honor ME but have REMOVED THEIR HEARTS FAR {AWAY} FROM ME AND THEIR FEAR TOWARDS ME IS TAUGHT BY THE PRECEPTS {MANUFACTURED LAWS} OF MEN:


Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD and their {manufactured} works are in the dark and they say, “Who {can} see us and who {can} know us {as to what secret, defiling and twisted things we do}?

Surely your turning of things UPSIDE DOWN {AGAINST THE TRUTH} shall be esteemed {likened to} as the potter’s clay: for shall the work {that what he so cleverly manufactured as lies} say of him that made it, “He made me not?” or shall the thing framed say of him {who falsely made falsehoods} that framed it, “He had no understanding {of what he was doing}?”  Isaiah (29: 13-16)

Does man think that WE cannot assemble his bones?

Nay, WE are able to put together in PERFECT ORDER the very tips of his fingers.

But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.  Q (75: 3-5)

Ah! You are those who love them {as you may be attracted by their standards of speech, lifestyle, self assuredness or position} but they do not love you – though you believe in the WHOLE of the Book. When they meet you, they say, “We {are also believers} believe”: However, when they are alone, they bite off the very tips of their fingers at you {OH! Muslims} in their rage. Say {to them}: “Perish in your rage; Allah Knows well all the secrets of the heart.”    Q (3: 119)

Mankind is NOT judged by his ability to leap tall mountains but in his desire to know the truth, hold onto the truth and live the life that is expected from a true servant of the ONE AND ONLY GOD!

a final, universal, eternal, and all-inclusive divine message was possible.

From The Angels Are Not Amused

“For where your treasure {disposition} is, there will your heart be {inclined} also.

The light of the body is the eye {comes through those desires reaching the soul}: if therefore your eye be single {as to one purpose to serve THE GOD}, your whole body shall be full of light.

But if your eye {the window to the soul} be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness {that will cut you off from HIS LIGHT}!

No man can serve Two Masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve {both} GOD and Mammon {dishonest gain through greed as in worldly materialism and the drive to gain it}”    Matthew (6: 21-24)

Say: “Everyone acts according to his own disposition: but your LORD KNOWS BEST who it is that is best guided on THE WAY.”    Q (17: 84)

Society does have a right to punish the individuals or groups that broke their solemn promises while practicing deceitful agendas.

In other words, these hypocrites want all the benefits of ‘freedom’ offered in democratic Islam but want the freedom to keep these benefits while trying to tear down the system that gave that to them*.

IN EVERYTHIG ALLAH ALONE KNOWS BEST. In my humble opinion in a couple of decades and perhaps a little bit more, the Earth will be visited by a massive, destructive ‘army’ called the Gog and Magog. This ‘army’ can be equated to a locust swarm that will devastate, rend and destroy everything in its path. What is left of society at that time will not be much**.

“How many generations have WE destroyed after Noah? And enough is your LORD to note and see the sins of HIS servants.

If any do wish {but for only the} transitory things (of this life – Mammon), WE readily grant them such things as WE WILL to such persons as WE WILL: in the end have WE provided Hell for them: they will burn therein, DISGRACED and REJECTED.

Those who do wish {sincerely} for the (things of) the Hereafter, and strive therefore with all due striving and have Faith – they are the ones whose striving will be thanked (by Allah).”    Q (17: 17-19)

As in the case with the people of Noah (pbh), they were soon to find out the devastating results of their collective insolence that they harbored within the breasts. Then the rains came and the ground also poured forth its water and guess who got caught on the short end of the stick!

This great army will come towards the very end of the Great Signs as prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (pbh) and NO ARMY or ANY CIVILIZATION will be able to stop them. They are the equivalent of the human-type locusts that will come and devour and destroy. They are the ones who will declare “We have killed those who are in the earth; come and let us kill those who are in heaven.”

Note it well that the hypocrites shall go to the lowest abyss of Hell, and you will not find any helper for them.   Quran (4: 145)

The hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, whereas, in fact, Allah has deceived them.       Quran (4: 142)

“The hypocrites of every age enjoy and have always enjoyed all the benefits conferred by Islam, by professing it with their tongue, and nominally joining the Muslim Community. At the same time they enjoy all the benefits they can derive from the disbelievers, by mixing with them and assuring them, “We are not bigoted Muslims though we are nominally connected with them. We are akin to you in culture, in thoughts and in the way of life and our interest and loyalties are the same as yours. Therefore, you should rest assured that we will side with you in the conflict between Islam {correct belief and judgments} and Kufur {disbelief}.”   (Taken from The Meaning of the Quran, note # 171 p. 176 vol. II, Surah AN-Nisa, verse 141).

According to Maududi, “What distinguishes a Muslim from a non-Muslim is that the latter claims absolute freedom but the former considers himself to be the servant of Allah and uses only that amount of freedom which Islam allows him. The non-Muslims judge all matters in accordance with the rules and regulations made by themselves and do not believe that they stand in need of Divine Guidance. In contrast to this, Muslims first of all, turn to Allah and His Messenger for guidance about everything and abide by their decision.”

A saying from Caliph ‘Umar – “The best way of punishing the one who does not fear Allah in his dealings with you is that you should fear Allah in your dealings with Him (Allah).” This is a good expression from Caliph ‘Umar. Students of comparative religion might appreciate this saying as it enlightens one on the correct meaning of the expression of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) when he declared to his followers concerning the ‘turning of one’s cheek’. This shows the superiority of a strong believer over a weak one and it also shows how one, with Allah’s permission, is putting ‘fire’ on the head of the disbeliever.

So what can Muslims do in this day and age? They can follow their Prophet (pbh) as best as they can. Because this is the era of turmoil and tumult, a Muslim needs to be patient and endure.

Not all who claim to be Muslims or helpers of Muslims are telling the truth in this somewhat treacherous world. Therefore, it should be known that in one’s dealings with people in their business, prayer and ability to keep one’s word is a sign of those who give signs.

The tongue has been described by the Prophet (pbh) as being deadlier than the sword in wounding people and in stirring up Fitna. Therefore, beware of the tongue as it can be a ‘killer of the heart and a destroyer of accumulated good deeds’.

Avoid the generalities of ‘groups of people’ but when keeping private council keep it amongst only the (trusted) few to avoid suspicion and ‘loose talk’.

Be in good spirits for things that happen have meanings but we don’t know what they portend. The weight of the world is great but the one who can smile at others is greater.

Above all, petition THE ONE WHO HEARS ALL AND UNDERSTANDS ALL THINGS AND PROVIDES AN OPPENING FOR A RELIEF. If a person can’t move a simple fly, know that HE is THE ONE WHO can move mountains!

O ALLAH! YOU ARE THE POSSESSER OF ALL MIGHT AND MAJESTY (AZZA wa JAL) AND YOU ARE THE ALIVE (AL-HAYY) AND THE SELF-SUBSISTING (AL- QAYYOM) FOR NONE CAN OPPOSE YOUR WILL! Grant that the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (pbh) will be Pre-eminent on the Last Day of Judgment – Ameen! And grant that the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (pbh) be Victorious – Ameen!

Dhu Mikhbar told that he heard Allah’s Messenger (pbh) say, “You will make a secure peace with the Byzantines, then {both} you and they will fight an enemy behind you and you will be victorious, take booty, and be safe. You will then return and alight in a meadow with mounds and one of the Christians will raise the cross and say, ‘The cross has conquered.’ One of the Muslims will become angry and smash it and the Byzantines will act treacherously and prepare for battle.” Some transmitters added, “The Muslims will then make for their weapons and will fight, and Allah will honor that band with martyrdom.”   (Abu Dawud)

From The Crown and the Cross: A very good article expressing Jewish treachery in their attempt to poison the truth. In conjunction with this knowledge take the following two things to understand further the predicament of the Jews. Also, this article gives a helpful insight on the non-crucifixion.

In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: And who shall declare his generation? For his life is taken from the Earth {as he arose from the Earth and entered the Heavens}.    Acts (8: 33)

Wherefore he says also in another psalm, THOU shall NOT suffer YOUR holy one to see corruption {mortal death}.   Acts (13: 35)

…For any to whom Allah gives NO LIGHT, there is NO LIGHT    Q (24: 40)

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace but a sword. I am come to set a man at variance against his father and the daughter against her mother and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they or his own household.    Matt (10: 34-36)


Behold! Your LORD did declare that HE would send against them, to the Day of Judgment, those who would afflict them with grievous chastisement. Your LORD is quick in retribution but HE is also oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

We broke them up into sections on this earth. There are among them some that are the righteous, and some that are the opposite. WE have tried them with both prosperity and adversity: in order that they might turn (to US)    Q (7: 167-168)

And when they listen to the Revelation received by the Messenger {Muhammad (pbh)}, you will see their eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognize the Truth: They pray: “Our LORD! We believe, write us down as witnesses.

“What cause can we have not to believe in Allah and the Truth which has come to us, seeing that we long for our LORD to admit us to the company of the Righteous?”

And for this, their prayer has Allah rewarded them with Gardens, with rivers flowing underneath – their eternal home. Such is the recompense of those who do good.      Q  (5: 83-85)

From The Great Disconnect has information on earthquakes and the debilitating action of discord on people.

But for many, philosophy and false philosophy triumphs over truth. Don’t look for a change in that philosophy to happen in great numbers and so these little ‘geniuses’ continue to thrive and why not?

The other partner to this fogginess is the so-called Judeo-Christian way of life which comparative religion has to deal with. What is the Judeo-Christian way of life? Nobody has quite figured it out yet but it sounds like ‘if it works for us and brings in the money, then that system must be considered the only real, successful mode of living. Anything threatening that position would be considered violent, barbaric, crude, simple-minded, a misfit and probably dysfunctional.

‘the blind cannot see nor the deaf cannot hear’.

“This OUR RECORD speaks about you {O! Mankind} with TRUTH: for WE were wont to put on record all that you did.”     Q (45: 29)

The great disconnect, that is the great disconnect from REALITY, is not only one sided either. Muslims are hit and hit hard from two areas: The suspicions of the west and the actions of the miscreants in their own camp.

A look at the various ‘Muslim countries’ around and in the Middle East shows a variety of cultures featuring cultural notions that have taken precedence over the pure teachings of the Prophet (pbh). These strange and varied customs often go against the grain of Islam as well as ‘family name’ superiority or what is most flagrant being tribalism. Adding on to this list is a type of ‘reactionism’ which when driven or controlled by a person whose religious knowledge is primitive at best, one can find faulty and dangerous so-called ‘fatwas’ driving some people into frenzied but illegal Islamic actions.

In any case, if the practice of Islam is going to be threatened, Mosques torn down, people displaced and made into state drones, real worship being frowned on or denied and true Islamic practices are cancelled then the war against the aggressor is moral and legal. If on the other hand, the ‘fight’ is over leadership called ‘the chair’ then the war is a tribal affair and it is not legal if both sides are practicing Muslims.

We have been warned by no less a personage as Muhammad (pbh) that the religion of Islam, as to the bedrock of true and strong faith, will go back to Medina. It seems, in these times, that the Belief is not walking back or running back but actually flying back. And such are the times and the turmoil that is approaching – be strong O Muslims be strong!

It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.   (Muslim)

Narrated Abu Huraira:  Allah’s Apostle (pbh) said, “Verily, Belief returns and goes back to Medina as a snake returns and goes back to its hole (when in danger).”      (Bukhari)

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “The last hour will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, so that the Jews will hide behind stones and trees and the stone and the tree will say, ‘O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.’ The only exception will be the box-thorn, for it is one of the trees of the Jews.”   (Muslim)

The similitude of those who were entrusted with the (obligations) of Taurat (Old Testament), but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not). Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of Allah: and Allah guides not people who do wrong.         Quran (62: 5)

From The Hijacking of Jesus

Because mankind has left his fingerprints on directing the ‘chosen flock’ or pathway of the day (era) we call this class of people as guides or in the common vernacular – the priest-class. Every society has developed its so-called priest-class from the shaman to those who specialize in dishing out historical stuff, codes to live by, practices and doctrine.

How did the hijacking of Jesus (pbh) take place? A brief overview of the article, Islam and the Rise and Fall of the Teachings of Jesus can give us some guidance as to how these things happened. It was a slow but gradual process that was aided by a lack of instant communication which we enjoy in today’s world. Things become eroded over time and philosophically speaking, cultures, tribes and nations will either fuse ideas or else wage war. This can be called the period of ‘after the dust settles’ by which a common agreement can be reached between peoples of various philosophies.

‘Certainly the matter would have been settled between the various factions had not the Word gone out from amongst them’.

But in vain they do worship me, teaching {about} doctrines {originating from} the commandments {desires} of men.      Matt (15: 9)

In other words, the worship of him (Jesus) is directly connected to the false ideas and concepts in the form of practiced worship or beliefs by so-called ‘holy’ decree stemming from their false desires or wishes. How do we know this? A little bit of history and the ability to read the above English sentence from Matthew tells us what is going to happen. The word ‘doctrine’ is a type of formulated word expressing those put in charge of making the religious decrees. That would concern only the priest-class (the overseers) of the religion because it would be their duty to ‘enlighten’ the general public about these things. Are they not the ones who claim they have the training, the historical documents, and the very insight to ‘guide’ the flock?

They take their priests and their religious leaders to be their lords besides Allah                 Q (9: 31).

Mischief has appeared on land and sea because of what the hands of men have earned, that Allah may give them a taste of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from evil)      Q (29: 41)

For there is no respect of persons with God      Rom (2: 11)

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he reap.       Gal (6: 7)

The Word changes not with Me and I do not the least injustice to My servants.                Q (50: 29)

When it is said to them, “Come to what Allah has revealed to the Messenger.” They say, “Enough for us are the ways we found our fathers following.” What! Even though their fathers were void of knowledge and guidance?      Q (5: 104)

They will further say, “Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!”      Q (67: 10)

Those who do wish for the (things of) the Hereafter, and strive therefore with all due striving and have Faith, they are the ones whose striving will be thanked (by Allah)        Q (17: 19)

Times Change but People Don’t – Another good article featuring several things about the non-crucifixion and the corruptions found in religion due to the corruptions found on the inside of men.

The ‘new Jewish’ faith better known as ‘The Way’ in the New Testament did not harp on the crucifixion event as it is harped about today but rather considered the ‘clean way’ of life and rejection of the worldly interests much more of a concern for earning the ‘life giving waters’ than philosophical mumbo-jumbo of the poised but surreal preachers that came after the first generation of believers.

Without a doubt it {The Quran} is (announced) in the {previous} revealed Books of {the} former peoples.   Q (26: 196)

Ye men of Israel hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did {as by HIS PERMISSION} by him in the midst of you, as you yourselves also know:

Him being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have taken, and by wicked hands have {SOUGHT TO} crucify and slay.                          The Acts (2: 22-23)

What about the Arabs and Al-Qaeda? Well that is in the hadith literature. In a hadith found in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim reported by Hudhaifa he reported that “People used to ask Allah’s Messenger (pbh) about good, but I used to ask him about evil from fear that it might overtake me… I asked whether there would be any evil after that good and he replied, “Yes, there will be people who summon others at the gates of Jahannam (Hell Fire) into which they will cast those who RESPOND to them.” I asked Allah’s Messenger (pbh) to describe them to us and he said, “They will be of our STOCK and speak like US.”

And according to another hadith by Hudhaifa found in Abu Dawud he asked what would come next and the Prophet (pbh) replied, “Then people who summon men to error will arise {those who ‘will be of our stock and speak like us’}; and if Allah has in the earth a Caliph who flays your back and takes your property, obey him; otherwise die holding on to the stump of a tree” {to protect your faith while avoiding mischief}. Then the dajjal will come forth…”

From When the Hearts Grow Cold and the Dajjal – A lot of stuff about the Dajjal and tribulations is presented in this article.

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened.

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there {is Christ}; believe it not.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible {but Allah will protect those who truly believe because HE gave HIS Promise}, they shall deceive the very elect.

Math (24: 21-24)

Al-Mustaurid b. Shaddad reported the Prophet (pbh) as saying, “I have been commissioned when the end of time is near and I have preceded it as this has preceded that,” indicating his forefinger and his middle finger.   (Tirmidhi)

In a hadith found in Bukhari and Muslim, Zainab daughter of Jahsh asked Allah’s Messenger (pbh) whether they would perish {even} when there were righteous people {living} among them, and he {the Prophet} replied, “Yes, when wickedness is abundant.”

Whatever misfortune happens to you is because of the things your {own} hands have wrought and for many (a sin) HE grants forgiveness.   Q (42: 30)

See you such a one as takes for his god his own passion (or impulse)? Could you be a disposer of affairs for him?   Q (25: 43)

Actually, western culture does tend to be kind of loose and many people like it that way. The sacred texts of religious beliefs tend to be kept on the shelves and not viewed very closely. This makes for a good game of ‘I won’t tell if you won’t tell’. Currently, the homosexual question raging through the west at this time is a good example. What do the Holy Records declare about this issue? Basically the answer is, “Who cares?” and “What right does any god have to tell us anyway?”

In a hadith found in Bukhari narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah concerning when some angels came to the Prophet (pbh) when he was sleeping … “The house stands for Paradise and the call-maker is Muhammad and whoever obeys Muhammad, obeys Allah; and whoever disobeys Muhammad, disobeys Allah. Muhammad separated the people (i.e. through his Message, the good being distinguished from the bad, and the believers from the disbelievers.”

Abu Sa’id reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “You will certainly follow the practices of your predecessors span by span and cubit by cubit, so that if they were to enter a lizard’s hole, you would follow them.” He was asked if he meant the Jews and the Christians and {he} replied, “Who else?”   (Bukhari and Muslim)

Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “People are just like a hundred camels among which you can scarcely find a riding beast.”                              (Bukhari and Muslim)

Nafi’ told that two men came to Ibn ‘Umar during the civil war of Ibn Al-Zubair and said, “The people have done what you see, and you are ‘Umar’s son and the companion of Allah’s Messenger, so what prevents you from going forth {to fight}?” He replied, “What prevents me is the fact that Allah has made it unlawful for me to shed my Muslim brother’s blood.” They asked if Allah Most High had not said, “And fight with them till there is no dissension,” to which Ibn ‘Umar replied, “We have fought till there was no dissension and the religion was Allah’s, {for it was solidified and made perfect and complete before the death of Muhammad (pbh)} but you want to fight so that there may be dissension {breaking up the unity of the believers} and the religion may pertain to someone other than Allah.”   (Bukhari)

It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar that the Holy Prophet (pbh) said, “It is obligatory upon a Muslim that he should listen (to the ruler appointed over him) and obey him whether he likes it or not, except {in the case} that he is ordered to do a sinful thing. If he is ordered to do a sinful act, a Muslim should neither listen to him {that leader} nor should he obey his orders.   (Muslim)

Abu Barda told on his father’s authority that he, meaning the Prophet (pbh), raised his head to the sky, which was a common practice of his, and said, “The stars are a means of safety for the sky, and when the stars depart what they have been threatened with will come to it {pass}. I am a means of safety for my companions, and when I depart, what my companions have been threatened with {fitna/civil strife} will come to them. My companions are a means of safety for my people, and when my companions depart, what my people have been threatened with will come to them.”   (Muslim)

Abu Huraira reported Messenger (pbh) as saying, “When the time becomes short, knowledge will be withdrawn, civil strife will appear, niggardliness will be cast into people’s hearts, and harj will be prevalent.” He was asked the meaning of harj and {he} said it meant slaughter.   (Bukhari and Muslim)

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “By Him in whose hand my soul is, the world will not pass away before a man comes by a grave and rolls on it saying he wishes he were in the place of the occupant of that grave, not for religious reasons, but because of {the unbearable } tribulations.” {Occurring at that time}   (Muslim)

From It Is a Wonder – mostly about Paul and the confusions that some corrupt philosophers ran into.

From Where Do We Go from Here or the Pure Islamist? – How the world looks at Islam. After all, the world is the world and hardship and treachery are the world’s middle names.

So what we have here appearing in front of the world can now be translated into approximately his words, ‘That they hated me (Jesus) without just cause.’ And those who are of faith can understand why the world went on to hate him and that was because he came to do the work that THE ONE GOD sent him to do for ALLAH does not need the permission of any of HIS servants and especially man to accomplish what HE WILLS!

So he is hated by most even unto those who claim him as their own. Hated because he is re-shaped and re-tooled into the image of something he is not and; therefore, the lie against him is slanderous. After all, if people don’t like the real Jesus (pbh), they feel free to substitute a ‘false’ one to take his place and create fictions about him. Is this hatred or not? One honors a man not through fiction but through telling the truth.

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (pbh) said, “By HIM in Whose hand Muhammad’s soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and the Christians who hears about me and then dies without believing in the Message with which I have been sent but he will be from the dwellers of the Fire.”    (Muslim)

‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “Do not eulogize {overly praise} me as the Christians eulogized {overly praised} the son of Mary. I am Just HIS {Allah’s} Servant, so say, “Allah’s Servant and Messenger.”                               (Bukhari and Muslim)

From A Chilling Reminder… more end-time prophecies and a look at how worldly thinking people have twisted things to what they think is their advantage.

And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved but for the elects sake, those days shall be shortened.    Matthew (24: 21-22)

See they not how many of those before them WE did destroy? Generations WE had established on the {face} of the Earth, in strength such as WE have not given to you – for whom WE poured out rain from the skies in abundance, and gave streams flowing beneath their (feet): yet for their sins WE destroyed them, and raised in their wake fresh generations (to succeed them).    Q (6: 6)

But the evil results of their deeds overtook them and that every (Wrath) at which they had scoffed hemmed {encircled} them in.    Q (23: 81)

The people only know the outward aspects of the worldly life, and of the HEREAFTER they are heedless.    Q (30: 7)

But he that denies me {my true character/nature} before men shall be denied before the angels of God.                         Luke (12: 9)

From A Wise Man – Here we have two wise men: a man of Paradise and a man of the world or sometimes called spiritual values vs. worldly ones.

‘Umar said when he was on the pulpit: You people must be humble towards one another, for I heard Allah’s Messenger (pbh) say, “He who is humble for Allah’s sake will be exalted by Allah {in His Eyes on the Last Day of Judgment}, for though he considers himself lowly he is great in the eyes of men; but he who is proud will be abased by Allah, for though he considers himself great he is lowly in the eyes of men to such an extent that he is of less value in their estimation than a dog or a pig.”

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “No one will enter Paradise without being shown {what could have been} his place in Hell, which will cause him all the more gratitude if he has done evil, and no one will enter Hell without being shown {what could have been} his place in Paradise, which will be a cause of grief to him if he has done good.”       (Bukhari)

Abu Musa reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying that when the Day of Resurrection comes Allah will hand a Jew or a Christian to every Muslim and say, “This is your means {way of escape} from Hell.”       (Muslim)

Those who reject Faith and deny Our Signs will be companions of the Hell-fire.              Q (5: 10)

‘Imran b. Husain reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “The best of my people are my generation, then their immediate followers, then their immediate followers. After them there will be people who give testimony without being asked, who will be treacherous and not to be trusted, who will make vows which they do not fulfill, among whom fatness will appear.” A version has “They will swear oaths without being asked to do so.” (Bukhari and Muslim) A version by Muslim on the authority of Abu Huraira says, “Then people who like plumpness will succeed them.”

Abu Sa’id reported God’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “You will certainly follow the practices of your predecessors span by span and cubit by cubit so that if they were to enter a lizard’s hole you would follow them.” He was asked if he meant the Jews and the Christians and he replied, “Who else”?    (Bukhari and Muslim)

Hudhaifa said, “People used to ask God’s Messenger (pbh) about good, but I used to ask him about evil from fear that it might overtake me. I said, Messenger of Allah, we were in a state of ignorance and evil, and then Allah brought us this {goodness of Islam}. After this good will any evil come?” On his replying that there would, I asked whether after that evil any good would come, and he replied that there would but that it would contain some duskiness. I asked what that would consist of and he replied, “People will follow a Sunnah other than mine and give guidance other than mine, so you will find in them both something to acknowledge and something to reject.” I asked whether there would be any evil after that good and he replied, “Yes, there will be people who summon others at the gates of Jahannam (Hell Fire) into which they will cast those who respond to them.” I asked Allah’s Messenger to describe them to us and he said, “They will be of our stock and speak like us.” I asked what command he had to give me if that happened in my time and he replied, “You must adhere to the community and the leader of the Muslims.” I asked what I should do if they had neither community nor leader and he replied, “Withdraw from all those factions even though you should have to cleave to the root of a tree till death overtakes you in that state.”     (Bukhari and Muslim)

From It’s the Calm before the Storm – getting ready before the world is shaken to its foundations.

Life is a learning experience. Life is not so simple that it can be put into an easy formula where answers come spilling out because people and their life patterns form very complex situations that for the most part are completely unknown by even the individual himself. Therefore, the expression found in the New Testament, ‘Judge not so that you will not be judged’ is very meaningful and highly complex. Who knows precisely what an individual needs to go through in order to be saved? Allah Alone Knows for Sure and that is an ultimate fact. However, there are things to do, things clearly stated about ‘rights and wrongs’ found in the approved religious records so people are not left with any willy-nilly create your own religious pathway type of nonsense.

It is my contention that we are approaching the end of an era, the end of what I call the 4th Age of Man. Whatever symbolism or language is used is not that important. What is important is what is found in the records that deal with this topic. Frankly speaking, records like the Book of Ezekiel, a few parts of the New Testament and the more massive material contained in approved hadith literature as well as some verses in the Quran, show an era (the close of the 4th Age) to be quite a dramatic and horrific time for the people left alive during this process. In other words, it is not a few days of ‘pain’ and hurt but an extended period of suffering and depression that will envelop mankind as a whole.

Then leave Me alone with such as reject this Message: By degrees We shall punish them from directions they perceive not.   Q (68: 44)

And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.        (Matt. 24: 22)

Patiently then, persevere for the Promise of Allah is True and ask forgiveness for your fault …   Q (40: 55)

From A Fly in the Ointment – Some people think that they are doing a favor to Islam where in fact they are ones who will be losers in the end because of the seditions they sowed. Also, some knowledge about the Dajjal (Anti-christ)

Jabir reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: The Satan sends detachments of his own in order to put people to trial and the highest in rank, in his eyes, is one who is most notorious in sowing the seed of dissension.                   (Sahih Muslim)

Abu Huraira reported ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) having said, “By HIM in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, ALLAH would sweep you out of existence and HE would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek {sincerely for} forgiveness from ALLAH, and HE {being requested in humbleness and worshiped in truth} would pardon them.   (Muslim)

From A Touch of Evil, a Touch of Class – Those who can win the race for salvation

A study of cultures in advanced decay reveals a tendency to hanker back to what is called ‘the good old days’ especially when one is on the side that will land one in solid financial terms. One cannot get to that point without duping the masses while making them willing pawns.

This deep rooted aspect of worldly pride will always be a darkness that will cover the light and in that case the thought of TRUTH or ACCOUNTABILITY in the HEARAFTER will be seriously retarded but not without a certain sense of smug satisfaction.

But water runs down hill and people want their pleasures as well as being pampered and comforted in the thought that their religious heroes would be charmed by their actions, race, creed, color or philosophy. Quite frankly speaking, these people are dead and who can make the dead to hear but only THE ONE GOD!

Mustaurid al-Qurashi reported: I heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Last Hour would come (when) the Romans {Christians} would form a majority amongst people. ‘Amr b. al-‘As said to him (Mustaurid Qurashi): “See what you are saying?” He said: I say what I have heard from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). Thereupon he said: “If you say that, it is a fact for they have four qualities. They have the patience to undergo a trial and immediately restore themselves to sanity after trouble and attack again after flight. They have the quality of being good to the destitute and the orphans, to the weak and, finally, the good quality in them is that they put resistance against the oppression of kings.”              (Sahih Muslim)

Those who desire the life of the present and its glitter, to them WE shall pay (the price of) their deeds therein without diminution.

They are those for whom there is nothing in the HEAREAFTER but the FIRE: vain are the designs they frame therein and of no effect are their deeds that they do!    Q (11: 15-16)

First, the Prophet (pbh) taught his nation various invocations, which if said in sincerity, are like keys that unlock the various treasures hidden from man. If one has the key, one is entitled to the treasure but if the ‘thief’ tries to unlock these treasures without the knowledge AND sincerity, he will fail.

Secondly, the Muslims have the knowledge of doing good deeds ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH and this adds to the great treasure to be used as ‘a ransom for one’s soul’ on THE LAST DAY OF JUDGMENT.

Finally, the well-intentioned and sincere Muslim has at his/her fingertips the means to get those treasures multiplied by a rather vast amount – treasure upon treasure!!! And that action (gift) will be greatly appreciated by those who are tarnished when it comes time to measure one’s worth at the SCALE that will measure goodness versus evil.

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger said, “If anyone of you improves his Islamic religion, then his good deeds will be rewarded ten times to seven hundred times for each good deed and a bad deed will be recorded {only} as it is.”   (Bukhari)

The above hadith certainly shows a most Gracious and Merciful Gift from our CREATOR LORD and does not cover those who do not strictly believe in Allah, Muhammad (pbh) and the Last Day. Therefore, the loss is theirs and no amount of riches, position or power can obtain these things.

So, everything being equal in the race, what do real Muslims have to be envious about when it comes time to remember that this worldly life is nothing but elusions but the real life comes upon the JUDGMENT that all men must go through.

Allah’s Prophet (pbh) said, “Those who are singled out have won the race; they have beat the rest.” They, his Companions said, “Who are those who are singled out, O Prophet of Allah?” He, the Prophet (pbh) said, “Those who remember Allah, both the men and women.”

From Evolution and the Little Blue Marble – A story that goes back in time

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) said, “The strong believer is better than and dearer to Allah than the weak believer. In all that is good be eager for what benefits you, seek help in Allah and do not be too weak to do so. If any affliction comes to you do not say, ‘If I had done such and such, such and such would have happened,’ but say, ‘Allah DECREES and what HE wishes HE DOES,’ for {the saying} ‘if I had’ provides an opening for the deeds of the devil.”   (Muslim)

From It Bedazzles the Mind – Some discussion on Jinn and striving for the sake of ALLAH

Therefore, religion is kind of passé in today’s world of high tech doings. There can be no doubt the ‘religion’ in the minds of real Muslims is the pathway to success in this world and the next. Success in this world is not equated with money, fame or prestige but with being on what is called the Straight Path. In other words, collecting the graces and abundance of real life and or paying debts to fulfill obligations that would otherwise be taken out of a person’s hide in the HEREAFTER.

Narrated Abu Qatadah: The Prophet (pbh) said, “The creation of these stars is for three purposes, i.e. as decoration of the (nearest) heaven, as missiles to hit the devils, and as signs to guide travelers. So if anybody tries to find a different interpretation, he is mistaken and just wastes his efforts, and troubles himself with what is beyond his limited knowledge.”    (Bukhari)

Recently a British scientist, Dr. Steven Hawking, who some consider to be the world’s smartest person has claimed that the Universe started by itself without the need for any Deity. Now this man is very smart there can be no doubt about that but his belief, which he is perfectly entitled to have, is lacking in common sense.

“After all, who wants to lose their cultural, political and secular heritage especially among the devout purists with secular smiles” whispers the deceiver? However, was Jesus (pbh) a secularist putting God second and Roman controlled society in which he lived first? According to what he has been given credit for saying the answer is no!

But seek you first the Kingdom of God {through knowledge and sincere devotion}, and His Righteousness; and all these {worldly things for your existence} shall be added unto you.   Matt. (6: 38).

He (Jesus) was not a rabble rouser but he definitely was not a secularist. He bore his cross all the days of his life in PATIENCE, PERSEVERANCE AND FORTITUDE and he asked his true followers to do the same in the knowledge that they were not spirits but were physical human beings that had to live (function) in the world.

But the hearts of men grow cold and the greedy look to hang onto their established lifestyles as cornerstones of a high and noble civilization because pride is a killer of the soul and dims the intellect.

Know you (all) that the life of this world is but play and a pastime {for your existence in earning a living}, adornment and mutual boasting and multiplying, (in rivalry) among yourselves, riches and children…    Q (57: 20)

If any do wish {crave beyond reason} for the transitory things (of this life) {over the HEARAFTER}, WE readily grant them – such things as WE Will, to such persons as WE Will: in the end have WE provided Hell for them: they will burn therein, disgraced and rejected.

Those who do wish for the (things of) the Hereafter, and strive therefore with all do striving, and {also have} Faith, – they are the ones whose striving will be thanked (by Allah).   Q (17: 18-19)

It is HE Who gave you life, {and} will cause you to die, and will again give you life: truly man is a most ungrateful creature!   Q (22: 66)

Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with you unless you follow their form of religion {their ways and beliefs}. Say {to them} “The “Guidance of Allah – that is the (only) Guidance.” Were you to follow their desires after the knowledge which has reached you, then you would find neither Protector nor Helper against Allah.       Q (2: 120)

‘Auf bin Malik reported that the Prophet (pbh) said, “ Enumerate six (occurrences) that will occur just before THE HOUR: 1) My death {done}, 2) the conquering of Jerusalem {done}, 3) Death that will spread among you like Qu’as Al-Ghanam (a disease that afflicts beasts resulting in a sickness whereby some material flows through the nose) {done}, 4) the flowing of wealth to the degree that a man will be given 100 dinars yet he will remain dissatisfied (at having received that {small, according to the times, amount} {done}, 5) a Fitna (trail of civil unrest) that will enter into every single Arab home {done}, 6) a truce that will be put into effect between you and the Banu Al-Asfar (the descendents of the Romans) and who will then act treacherously and come to you {against you altogether} under 80 banners and under each banner there will be 12,000 (soldiers) {the Great War} {still pending}.    (Bukhari)

An interesting hadith reported by ‘Auf bin Malik. Think of this as a ‘European agenda’ and for some of the reasons reported above in the discussion. Where is America in all of this? They will be busy as will all peoples as being put under stress but especially them.

How is this so? From the land alterations causing much hardship is how. Is this some magical statement? Allah forbid! And may HE protect us against those evil practices. No, it is from the ‘geological records’ from the science of geology as taken from some who have studied in this area. That area is the structural stress on the lands of the Americas specifically that which has been studied by geologists concerning the western and middle parts of America.

Let not those who deny the Truth delude themselves that they have won the game; indeed they are incapable of frustrating US.    Q (8: 59)

Fain would they {try and} extinguish Allah’s LIGHT with their mouths, but Allah will not allow but that HIS LIGHT should be PERFECTED, even though the unbelievers may detest (it).   Q (9: 32)

As things get clearer


As things get clearer understanding gets less. How else could that be in this present world of division and worldly interest? The ‘hungry’ eyes of the world seem to be focusing on the Middle East.

In this area many prophets fell like rain from the sky and then came the birth of Jesus (pbh) and that was followed by the miraculous life and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (pbh). Besides this, there is Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem and their histories both beautiful and thorny. So, the world has a natural attraction to the Middle East by various pathways of ideas and ideals, which tend to make life seem at times, like a cartoon. Throughout the various stages of history shepherds have come to instruct while wolves have come to the area to lick their chops over the sheep and to straighten things out as it were.

As things get clearer, they get stickier as some people have wanted to make sure that their worldly views – no matter how primitive they are – somehow sub-plant the real order of things. Though their vision may be myopic, no doubt they feel a need to make their impressions felt, as a kind of guide to the way things ought to be. If by chance they should cause the prophets to be forgotten and introduce real progress, they have left their mark on the world.

As things get clearer, they become muddier and there has to be a contest of wills going on, which somehow will end up giving the green light to a new world order and put any prophet-philosophy (or what would they call it?) as a quaint little wandering of the mind. It just doesn’t put coins in the bank and God Himself hasn’t come down to lead the parade.

As things get clearer, they get harder. A guy who sits at the back of the bus doesn’t get noticed so much. Sit him at the front and if he isn’t wearing your team’s colors, then he might be induced to change or else have his physical appearance altered by blood spilling – all for the good of course.

As things get clearer people get more desperate because they don’t want to understand. It is you that had better understand because, like a Goliath or a Pharaoh, they hold all the cards and little impudent you are holding them back from taking their bows on the center stage of the world. So, the end result is the classic confrontation and suffering. It is easy to get rid of a boil on a finger by chopping off the hand but there must be better way.

As things get clearer, things get more confused with some people wishing they were someplace else and more people wishing that they were there with them. Such it ever is with people who want to take the “brass ring” and do absolutely nothing or next to nothing to earn it.


From Islam and the Rise and Fall of the Teachings of Jesus – This is the article that started it all. Basically it gives the truer history of what happened to the pure teachings of Jesus (pbh). And what went wrong with his teachings can be reflected to what happened in Islam also although here the major difference is that the Quran was kept pure and in the original tongue of the people it had first come to.

The de-habilitating dispositions causing the human being to be out of sync with his Creator are shown throughout the many pages of the Old Testament, New Testament and Quran. Within these pages of Holy Writ human beings are shown whose desires argue against the ‘Light’ and prefer darkness to be their couch by which truth is sought from a sense of false solace, practice and belief. Both the wishing for Paradise and escape from Hell-Fire do nothing if it is based on ineptitude, falsehood and the willful destruction of the harmony of the scriptures.

  1. Those who remain ignorant of their religion or parts of it and misconstrue certain concepts through either laziness or self-will.
  2. Those who don’t practice according to the ‘Books’ but insist on following some perverted teachings/teacher who cooks up fanciful notions by being untrained, radical or being an ignorant person.

Even in knowing this, the signs of what is right and what is wrong are a ‘moral issue’ to be decided not by culture, race or politics but by that which discuses these issues and are God inspired – the Holy Scriptures! See how mankind lies against himself by proclaiming these scriptures as holy but then ignoring them by following contrary ways.

For we must {as men} needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground which cannot be gathered up again; neither does GOD respect any person {made any man exempt from this LAW of death}: yet HE {by HIS GREAT PLAN} devises {ways and} means that HIS banished {those people who sinned but came back to HIS LIGHT through HIS GRACE and MERCY unto repentance} be not expelled from HIM {and therefore thrown into HELL-FIRE.                                2 Samuel (14:14)


But now is Christ risen from the dead {the dead being those who carry out their daily lives NOT for GOD but for living just for the sake of living in the world} and {he has} become the firstfruits of them who slept.

For since by man {Adam following after his pattern} came death {by GOD’s PLAN through the agency of man} through {a} man came also {the pattern of} resurrection of the dead.                        1 Corinthians (15: 20-21)

According to Paul:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe in a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.        2 Thessalonians (2: 11-12).

“You have met this fate because you rejoiced on the earth in things other than the truth, and then exulted in it.”     Q (40:75)

Say “Everyone acts according to his own disposition: but your Lord knows best who it is that is best on the Way.”    Q (17:84)

These inner desires are known only by Him Who Knows all things and Who created all things. That is why it is a mystery as no soul knows what is in the most secret chamber of the heart. The only One that knows of these things is the One Who created the soul in the first place for He is He Who is the Lord of all and none can compare unto Him!

Who do Muslims worship? Muslims worship The Supreme Lord of all creation Who has the power to create and destroy all things that were made. Therefore, Muslims do not worship the created things. They do not worship statues and they don’t worship individuals who ate food, urinated and defecated.

See you such a one as takes for his god his own passion (or impulse)? Could you be a disposer of affairs for him?

Or do you think that most of them listen or understand? They are only like cattle; no, they are further astray from the Way      Q (25: 43-44).

… For any to whom Allah gives no light, there is no light!   Q (24: 40).

Some misguided individuals find pleasure in proclaiming ‘The Word’ as their word such that they go so far as to invent falsehoods that please their inner desires (dispositions). One such notion held by certain radicals is that one must believe in a certain way concerning Jesus (pbh) or that person will not be ‘saved’. It is best to avoid those deluded people but, if not, then try comparing what Jesus (pbh) said with those who lay up false claims of embellishment and estrangement from the truth – which in all fairness is shown by all religious radical groups.

If I do not the works of my Father {Creator Lord}, believe me not.

But if I do, though you believe not {in} me, believe the works {that are given me to do}: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me and I am in Him.                                          John (10: 37-38)

There is no condemnation here thrown down by Jesus (pbh) as to believing in him as anything more than a blessed human worker of good works (defined as prophet due to the oneness of purpose and intent to serve his Creator Lord).

And the Muslims believe because they believe in the real Jesus (pbh) and not the artificially created one. But if that is not enough for our Christian brethren, let it be said that the Muslims do believe in those ‘divine miracles’ (works) as represented in the Quran. So who now will stand up in arrogance and proclaim that the words of Jesus (pbh) should be subverted by mere whims or philosophical mumbo-jumbo making out the words of Jesus to be of little or no effect.

When ALLAH HIMSELF DECIDES that the Earthly kingdom or paradise comes to an end, HE WILL, among other things, withdraw the Quran from this world and take out every soul that has the smallest amount of faith in the heart and leave the rest that is left to enjoy their perversions with their leader, advisor and false god – Satan.

And when that short-lived kingdom of filth is over, then comes the rising from the graves for Judgment and the old heavens and the old Earth will be no more.

The Middle East of today is becoming dry tinder and there seems no way to stave off sectarian violence and mistrust which is one of the things that will turn this area into a boiling cauldron spewing out hatreds and insults between the various sects of Islam. There can be no harmony when there is no real understanding of Islam or when cannot put forward their ideas in harmony and backed up by Islamic proof instead of using provocative sentiments and statements having no real authority to do so.

The divisions of Lebanon are like dried tinder and a bad spark is all that is needed to set it off. Lebanon only apparently worked well when it invested itself in an artificial atmosphere of looking like a cardboard Switzerland. Iraq is a sectarian breeding ground for malcontents and a staging area for Iranian provocation. Egypt, Tunisia, Jordon, Bahrain and Yemen also face ever increasing difficulties in defining themselves and therefore, are ripe for foreign intrigue and bellicose behavior amongst its citizens.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!       Isaiah (5: 20)

This shows only the extent of Allah’s mercy, which no human mind can even imagine. “And do not despair of Allah’s mercy. For, most surely, none despairs of Allah’s mercy except the disbelieving people.” Quran (12: 87)
