A real close look at modern day Christianity reveals certain oddities that must be addressed. Also tied in with this subject are the peculiarities of mankind’s attempt to subvert the truth which has happened time and time again in every age and in every religion resulting in corruption and diverse ways not sanctioned by the original inheritors (the prophets) of that truth. This idea is still a Mystery as outlined by Paul, (2 Thessalonians 2: 3-12), and found in the Quran and hadith material. This idea will continue to remain a mystery until the Final Day of Judgment. However, the shadow of its contents can be known.

There is no religion without people and no people without a religion. Every human being, including the Anti-christ, is born in a state of Fitra (a natural state of awareness to the Oneness and Uniqueness of God and a certain correctness and relevancy of truthful logic). However, this state can be overturned by willful desires (dispositions) that appeal to one’s heart and so every human being gets a taste of those desires or perversions and must make an attempt at approaching ‘God consciousness’ in relying on Him Who created all things in order to be ‘saved’. That is in order for true Salvation to take place on the Last Day of Judgment.

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.


So one can take Jesus (pbh), for example, and trust in his rightful words since he was a prophet while not corrupting the unity of the scriptures. The problem with looking at Jesus (pbh) is in realizing that he has TWO basic jobs:

  1. He came to Earth as a representative of the lost sheep of Israel only Math (15: 24) showing that his first mission was one of being very limited and for a limited time frame. Either that or he was lying and didn’t tell the truth or know the truth.


But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel

Math (15: 24).


  1. He will return with a greatly expanded role with an inherited kingdom of the best of believers with non-belief being eradicated. This viewpoint is shown in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Isaiah, some sayings in the New Testament and the Quran and hadith materials.


In order for Jesus (pbh), his original 11 disciples plus 1 (the one who took over from Judas Iscariot) and Paul to be telling the truth, it takes an understanding and patient soul to unravel over 90% of the missing historical elements not readily detectable in modern day Christianity. However, much of the missing material can be pieced together but it isn’t pretty because self-willed individuals cannot come to the table in humbling themselves to the truth but are hooked into various false philosophies that promise self-glorification through exclusion. What? Are they gods who can decide their own fate as well as the fate of others?

Arguing about human defects is easy in the light of statistical analysis of the number of violent crimes committed annually in any country including murder, rape, drug related incidences, pornography, homosexuality, prostitution, alcohol related problems and the list goes on and on. What is not generally considered are the ‘problems’ caused by the ‘holier-than-thou’ set, who for one reason or the other, enjoin God for themselves based on exclusiveness of race, religion or philosophy. This last bunch can be further classified into two groups:

  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.


Since over 21/2 billion people put forth a claim to ‘belonging to’ the Abrahamic traditions, let us take a look at Christianity as a pivotal role in passing on the ‘eternal truths’ and the consequences or lack thereof.


Christianity, according to scriptural analysis took over from ‘The Teachings of The Way’ or the pure teachings of Jesus (pbh) became part of the Way and entered a phase of being infiltrated and persecuted from nearly its inception.


The Greek invasion or the problem with Christianity


It is amazing that with at least 90% of the records of true history gone or destroyed for various reasons that Christianity’s history can be fairly well pieced together is no small feat. In addition to this, by the correct use of the New Testament a truer form of history can be resurrected which in part actually validates many of the missing pieces on what was going to happen to the teachings of Jesus (pbh).


Paul and the original disciples of the Master dropped hints as to the disappearance of the true Way or the corruption of the same in the expressions still found in the New Testament of today that ‘The End’ was near at hand. This is taken by certain fanatics to show that ‘they’ didn’t know what they were talking about or that they were deluded, drunk or drugged. To suggest that the end was near, so very close, seems odd if the world would continue for more than 2,000 years. Or else, they meant something else and they were telling the complete truth!


Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that the anti-christ shall come, even now are there many anti-christs, whereby we know that it is the last time

(1John 2: 15).


Paul does clarify that statement based on the original disciples’ knowledge by suggesting in his so-called writings that yes, the end time is near but that it will be dragged out a bit and not come so very swiftly. Now this can be verified through various verses found in the Bible and matching it with historical fact.

One verse comes from Paul himself and is somewhat puzzling. However, when looking very deep into this verse and using historically known evidence and in looking at the ‘Jewish past’ and see some of their lusts for ‘foreign ideas’ one can get a clearer picture at what ‘will take place’ and how it was done. And this is verified in the New Testament itself to mention one place!


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).*


The word ‘Greek’ becomes important now as to what Paul had predicted would happen to Jesus’ teachings.


The First Greek Invasion


The first Greek invasion was around before the start of the ministry of Jesus (pbh), basically in one of several forms of Mithraism, and can be seen in the form of paganism showing a somewhat poor, parallel form to what would mimic modern day ‘Christianity’. This type of paganism wasn’t the normal type of paganism but that of corrupted ‘eastern religious’ influence due to trade and ideas coming from outside the Greco-Roman Empire chiefly through Asia Minor.


From this corruptive influence one can get certain ideas that floated around at the time and some form of substance having a track-record and a built up philosophy that so-called intellectuals could digest. In other words, a corrupted dogma connected with Babylonian mysteries derived from ancient Baal worship having the notion of ‘divine’ Avatars with god-like qualities and a history of how the world was created, could offer the ‘intellectual’ seeker a kind of regulated system. The problem was that this system dealt with past events of legends and myths and there was no modern ‘poster boy’ to hang one’s hat on.


As the budding but real teachings of Jesus (pbh) spread eastward, the ‘poster boy’ was found. He was not a myth, legend or old historic figure but a modern (in those days) representation of what they considered as a living god. The seeds of dissension were sown and like seeds buried in the ground were not noticeable by the earliest of believers in Jesus nor did it affect real ‘Christianity’ yet – up to early 50s CE.


The Second Greek Invasion


The second Greek invasion came from the children of those planted seeds. Christianity was moving forward and as still can be found today had some Gnostic elements within its literature.


Christianity in Paul’s era was homegrown and not some far off religious fantasy. However, amongst the practical life’s instruction there were mysteries like the virgin birth, the non-crucifixion, the miraculous resurrection, miracles performed by Jesus (pbh) and salvation to name a few things.


Within some of the newly established Christian centers, the choice of righteous living versus mystery building was a hard choice for some. Hence, with the disease in some people’s hearts already brewing (the Docetae invasion) some so-called followers of Christianity (those of the second generation of believers) turned to false Gnostic thought by which they were mislead and broke away from the true body of believers to create a new philosophy built upon the vestiges of the old thought of the god-man visiting the Earth for upliftment and redemption. This has been proven by several warnings found in the New Testament as those who were ‘with’ the believers would breakaway to form foul and misleading creeds.


The Docetae invasion is basically where the downfall of the real teachings of Jesus (pbh) became polluted. Those people of this persuasion believed in their own wisdom over the teachings (Sunnah) of their prophet Jesus and became bewitched by their own folly. Indeed! They learned from the original disciples and their true followers that Jesus was not crucified and took this truth and with arrogance went on to formulate a new Christianity by ‘mixing the leaven with the lump’ as against the warnings of the original teachers of truth. So their so-called wisdom turned into folly and their assumptions mislead them to put themselves and their followers above the real believers for they trusted in their own ‘wisdom’ (corruption) which turned against them. So in their eyes they were wise but in truth they became by their own twisted doings disbelievers!


They went out from us, but were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us                    (1 John 2: 19).


According to Paul – For I know this that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparring the flock.

Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them Acts (20: 29-30).


This group is scantily recorded in the New Testament as wolves in sheep’s clothing that were part of the ‘real’ Christians but who broke away while teaching or forming their own schools of false doctrine. These accursed individuals were the first ones to come up with the notion of ‘Gnostic Trinity’ and the phantom earthly body of Jesus as to why he was not crucified as they gleaned this second detail from the nearest followers of the disciples. They also insisted that Jesus (pbh) was an ‘emanation’ form of God and related to God Himself.


Don’t think that this group only had a minor impact on the future history of Christianity. This group went on after a few decades to develop and evolve personages like Basilides, Valentinus and others as time went on. In fact Valentinus was nearly elected ‘Bishop’ of Rome (Pope) so the popularity of these false Gnostics was huge and troublesome for real Christians.


The Third Greek Invasion


The third Greek invasion came from those who can be called the literalists as they tended to take the various yet unapproved New Testament documents, of which there were many false as well as true ones, literally. They tended to be well meaning but simple minded and not extremely well versed in Old Testament lore.


They formed a body that considered any or all Gnostic belief as alien perverted philosophy but being third generation believers they were a little bit lost at sea and didn’t understand very well early formative Christianity as taught by the original disciples. In fact their ignorance was so gross that they had little to no idea about the lives of the original 12 disciples and could not be sure when they were born, when they died or how they died or what they said except the scanty records that they possessed. We know this from true history as they left records of their very incomplete knowledge/innuendo about the original followers of Jesus (pbh) and even of the master himself.


This can be tested by looking up the ‘records’ concerning Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Thaddeus and Thomas to name just a few of the ‘original’ disciples. Their true biographies when put all together would hardly fill a few large postcards. This is monstrous when one considers that these original disciples are the real bedrock for the continued spreading of the True Word.


However, this was the best group of Christians at the time in the eastern part of the Greco-Roman Empire as they held onto more of the ‘principles’ of what they could discern as Christ’s original teachings. They, however, believed in a literal crucifixion. From this group came the future Arians who would pit themselves against the next Greek invasion. From this third group come the Asia Minor members of the ‘church’ like Polycarp.


The Fourth Greek Invasion


With both sides (second and third groups) going strong as can be seen by Valentinus’ near miss of popedom, enter the last group which is truly a Greek import. This group, led by intellectuals such as Justin Martyr, Tertullian etc, can best be called the ‘blending philosophers’ as they combined the so-called best of both worlds (groups 2 and 3) under Greek philosophical thought to basically come up with the irrational thinking of Jesus (pbh) as being both god and man. This did not happen overnight but evolved over several decades.


Indeed, this last group could divorce ‘eastern’ religious fiction and replace it with their own ‘intellectual’ fiction because it was Greek based and homegrown and Jesus (pbh) was not from a foreign culture but one of them or so they made him out to be. These philosophers were extremely weak in Old Testament understanding and basically helped greatly in undermining the teachings of Jesus (pbh). They depended on their own understanding of Gnostic material taken from Paul and the Gospel of John to name a few of their sources. Of this group it can be said:


And account that the long-suffering of our lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written to you.

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before; beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness    2 Peter (3: 15-17).


To this nefarious group can be said:


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, through insolent envy among themselves. 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).


But group # 3 was not going to vanish so easily. The war of what was real Christianity raged back and forth between these two groups with both sides showing strong membership and later this led to the famous ‘Arian’ controversy. However, as it so happens, the power, prestige and money were held by the 4th group (how utterly worldly they were) while the numbers of believers were weighing more heavily with the 3rd group… and along came Constantine and history was made!


The clever people (not the honest or upright ones but the shiftiest ones) maneuvered their way to victory in defeating Arianism. One of the benefits gleaned from their victory was to have every single record that disagreed with their philosophy, whether true or false, eliminated throughout all lands controlled by the Roman Empire. Thus, modern day philosophical Christianity was born.


Why is this important to know? Well for one thing the wahi (inspiration not Revelation) given to Paul has been proven true. Let us take a look at what Paul said and see if his words are words of praise or words of scorn concerning the so-called crucifixion:


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


Modern day Christianity takes great pride in the physical crucifixion of Jesus (pbh). But the one’s who are most enthusiastic about it and heap words of praise and glory over it for a centerpiece of glorification and total redemption are the Evangelicals or born again type Christians. No words of praise are too small to highlight the so-called crucifixion death and resurrection of Jesus (pbh). Yet Paul’s words about the crucifixion are words of scorn and not praise unless one considers the words STUMBLINGBLOCK AND FOOLISHNESS praise.


The ‘we’ in the above verse is natural because in biblical terminology from the Old Testament to the New Testament, one must crucify the lust in one’s heart from following willful desires so as to abandon falsehood to enter into the Way by following the teachings given by the prophets and not the ‘false wisdom’ of the world. Hence, in the case of Jesus (pbh) in showing the Way, one must carry one’s own cross and submit and surrender to God’s Will in peace and assuredness as he tells his followers to do and which is recorded in the New Testament. Therefore, the call is for everyone to carry one’s own cross in fighting the delusions of worldly belief and selfish, false desires. Hence, every true believer must be crucified!


The Jews have claimed the falsehood of Jesus’ Messianic mission and look for another Messiah because being crucified meant to them that he was false and therefore it became to them a STUMBLINGBLOCK. To the ‘Greeks’ as can be seen in the Greek invasion story, it was a chance to build onto a corrupt philosophy and to invent a scenario that resembles more like unto the pagan philosophy of old. Hence the term FOOLISHNESS and the real meaning of ‘the end is at hand’ becomes apparent.


The Docetaeic movement (a perversion) can be now seen as an attempt to come to grips with the knowledge of the non-crucifixion issue but without true knowledge of how it happened and they ended up in trying to fit a square peg in a round hole and further went astray by creating myths and legends.



What is wrong with modern day Christianity?


When people think in a neutral environment using the virtue of balance two things become apparent:

  1. The New Testament as far as it goes is a pretty fair document and in most parts fairly honest but in some parts totally erroneous.
  2. Huge gaps of crucial material are totally missing. Everything that Jesus (pbh) did or said would be considered words and actions of great import worth more than a treasure of gold.


Jesus was born a prophet and spoke to adults as a baby. His life and actions are considered sacred and important. So why does the New Testament give only a drop from the full glass? Does one abridge such a treasure if one wants to revel in it?


Most of the life of Jesus (pbh) is not recorded at all! Was he that boring, drab and uninteresting that he becomes mostly forgotten? The missing 18 years of his life before he ‘pops’ back up again to begin his teachings are simply invisible. That is not a good sign especially since he was born a prophet and speaking from the cradle and with wisdom.


We are told that at the age of 12, he held discourses with the elite scholars of God’s Word and was even instructing them as they were astonished by his speech. One would expect to read about his being questioned and the awesome answers he was giving but again we come up with a blank.


People may say, “So what?” but they would be missing the point completely. What he must have given was the essential doctrine of truth as given by God to His servant Moses (pbh) and the implication thereof as well as the corrections of any falsehoods or misunderstandings they had. Also note that since that meeting was documented as actually having taken place from some form of knowledge where did the meat go? It seems like the meeting was important but the substance was not. That is like having a stake sandwich without the stake!


A high powered boy of 12 filled with awesome knowledge and wisdom, true knowledge and true wisdom for a hungry world now goes off the radar for 18 years!!!


It is well known in human psychology that when a person is highly interested in something that person will dig at things from different angles to squeeze the most that can be squeezed out of a subject. His disciples that he had for about 3 years appear at times to be mindless drones in asking very few questions when in fact they spoke to him a lot. So where are the answers to their multifaceted questions? Except for a few that are given in the New Testament the answers are nowhere to be found.


These and other irregularities have caused some men to even deny the existence of Jesus (pbh). Of course that is nonsense but it leads to another interesting tidbit.


Islam contains a superabundant wealth of information concerning the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbh), the formation of Islam from its humble beginnings, his sayings and doings, and historical references by people who cared and loved enough to document and preserve a most honorable and sanctified mission as was given to this man and prophet – Muhammad (pbh).

The present day Gospels only scratch the surface for this type of evidence. They go on to show that no original firsthand accounts existed when the Gospels were first recorded but only partial tidbits remained like a very short abridged story from non-direct eyewitness accounts with the possible exception being parts of the Gospel of John. Even the older Dead Sea Scrolls provide more depth than the New Testament does about their beliefs and they both suffered from the ravages of the 70 AC war with Rome.


The Muslim is right in religious discussions with Christians to believe in the original Revelations to Jesus (pbh) known in Arabic as the Injeel. It is also correct to ask our Christian friends for the original manuscripts in their original language which was a form of Aramaic known as Syriac. Why?


That is what the Muslims can produce in this religious polemic concerning the Quran so why not match the same tenacity for truth? Mankind cannot depend upon wishful thinking or tilting of the ‘facts’ to suit a purpose and have a valid argument.


A case in point: Would you buy something sight unseen even for a supposedly unheard of drastic price reduction? A man who claims to be a well-known art dealer and can present a lot of credentials has an original painting worth 2 million dollars but because he needs a quick sale to raise money for his sick mother, he will sell it to you for only 5 thousand dollars sight unseen of course. The man’s credentials are phony as well as the man’s story. In fact, people who fall for that line end up being taken to the cleaners!


Unlike the original Quran with its traceable roots of the Arabic language, the Injeel in its completeness does not exist today. What exists, for example, is the Gospel according to Matthew. Mathew is not God and therefore this gospel cannot be said to be God’s Word.


Though to be fair, the current New Testament even after some adjustments made by the ‘Greek’ understanding of such does provide enough evidence of the man Jesus (pbh) as well as the next prophet to come after his first mission.

There are 3 basic ways in dealing with the other peoples of the Books:

  1. The explanation of their scriptures.
  2. The Revelations containing the prophecy of the Last and Final Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (pbh).
  3. The concentration on the Oneness and Uniqueness of God Who has no partners in deciding His affairs.


All 3 of these ways have their own pitfalls so let us take a look at these different ways.


The first way depends upon having a great deal of  knowledge of the scriptures in a balanced way but it is not the most beneficial way that can be applied because many ‘questioners’ have already decided that anything Islam states is either wrong or copied. Therefore, it is useless to talk about the Quran and the discussion must therefore remain within the confines of the Bible as they would have it.


As we have seen, the Bible is not exactly the Word of God although it does contain many expressions from God but mankind’s history of twisting things out of reality is well known and therefore the Bible is not exempt in its totality from this evil manipulation. However, an example should be given to prove the point. Starting from a positive viewpoint one can take Isaiah (53: 9-10) taken from the New International Version of the Bible.


He was assigned a grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.


Yet it was the Lord’s Will to crush him (bruise him) and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the Will of the Lord will prosper in his hands.


Christians claim that these verses explain the crucifixion, burial of Jesus (pbh) in a tomb paid for by a rich believer known as Joseph of Arimathea. Besides this, they can rightfully claim that these sentiments are found in the ancient Dead Sea Scrolls (the copper scroll of Isaiah) and that is the end of that! Well, not quite because one must find a valid interpretation that is not tweaked so as to be slanted or perverted.


An Islamic interpretation would be quite different and one can say, “If you really want to understand parts of these verses, you should go to the spirit of truth as proclaimed in John (16:13). That is if one wants to have an understanding of the truth, one should go to Islam and the prophetic sayings for that truth. And this is not just a simple suggestion but one of the commandments of Jesus (pbh). What the scribes did with this knowledge is readily apparent and they will be questioned about this on The Last Day of Judgment.


Hazrat Ibn Masud relates that the Holy Prophet (pbh) said, “I know as to who will come out of the Hell last of all, or the last person to enter Paradise. It will be a man who will come out of the Hell crawling on his buttocks. Allah, the Lord of Honor and Glory, will say to him, “Go and enter the Paradise.” He will go to the Paradise and think it is full. He will therefore return, and submit, “My Lord! I find the Paradise full.” Allah will say, “Go and enter the Paradise.” In compliance with this order, he will again go and think that it is full. He will return and say, “O my Lord! I find the Paradise full.” Allah the Exalted will say, “Go and enter the Paradise.” In compliance with this order, he will again go and think that it is full. He will return and say, “O My Lord! I found the Paradise full.” Allah the Exalted, will say, “Go and enter the Paradise. For you it is equivalent to the whole world and ten times more like it (or you have ten times the like of the world).” He will submit, “My Lord! Do You joke with me and laugh at me although You are the Master?” The narrator says, “I noticed that the Holy Prophet (pbh) while saying so, smiled so much so, that his last teeth became visible, and he was saying, “Such will be the lowest in rank among the dwellers of Paradise.”   (Bukhari and Muslim)


‘Abdullah b. Salam said the description of Moses is written in the Torah and also that Jesus son of Mary will be buried along with him (Muhammad). Abu Maudud said that a place for a grave has remained in the house (where Muhammad is buried).    (Tirmidhi transmitted it)


Abdullah b. ‘Amr reported God’s Messenger as saying, “Jesus the son of Mary will descend to the earth, will marry, have children and remain forty-five years, after which he will die and be buried along with me in my grave. Then Jesus the son of Mary and I shall arise from one grave between Abu Bakr and ‘Umar.   (Ibn al-Jauzi transmitted it in Kitab al-wafa’)


Christians claim that Jesus (pbh) was buried WITH the rich by being placed in the tomb of the rich man Joseph of Arimathea but is that correct? First of all, Joseph of Arimathea was NOT buried along with Jesus (pbh). However, when one considers that the last man to enter Paradise will have the entire world’s value plus 10 times more, then that person would be considered exceedingly rich. In looking at the exalted station and inheritance of Prophet Muhammad (pbh) as the leader of those who give praise to the Creator Lord one can readily see that that station would be considered extremely rich beyond all thought! Therefore, being buried along with Prophet Muhammad (pbh) fulfills that prophecy of being buried with the rich.


As to seeing his OFFSPRING and prolonging his days one must ask what the word ‘offspring’ might mean. By having children is one meaning of the word offspring such that he will see his children from his own seed in that his life was prolonged and he fulfills the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbh) in being quite human and quite married and blessed with blessed children – as a normal human being. Secondly, his days are prolonged in that he will be around (the second coming) to see the fruits of his labors that he undertook for the sake of Allah when he inherits the blessed kingdom on Earth (united in one Faith and Sunnah – Islam) given to him in relationship to ‘The Believers’.


The truth of the matter concerning the man Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) is that he did NOT die a PHYSICAL death (so he was not killed nor even put on the cross). This can itself be proven from the study of comparative religion amongst the scriptures. In this way it can be said that the same Jesus (pbh) that left the Earth will be the same man who will come back again and that he will as being but only a man die when and where ALLAH WILLS.


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)


And as it is appointed unto men once to die but after this the judgment.                       Hebrews (9: 27)


It must be embarrassing, ironic and horribly disturbing to understand that many Christians through their lack of understanding of their own scriptures consider Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) both God and Satan AT THE SAME TIME without even knowing what they are doing.***


The proof of this lies in their own interpretation of their records. So let me explain this paradox. According to John (16: 11) which states:


Of judgment {to come} because the ‘Prince of this world’ {the leader of this world} {will be raised up} and is judged.     John (16: 11)


According to most Christians the ‘Prince of this world’ is Satan the Devil. This implies that it took God eons to decide by judgment that evil was bad and not really good. ALLAH save us from those errors of farcical nonsense! Yet by taking a different approach we can harmonize the records and have a much better understanding of what is going on while showing that the records are truly one!

According to Islam, Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) will return to lead the believers in an earthly paradise featuring the pure Islamic Way with a ‘One nation (the world) being united under One religion, One Holy Book, One Sunnah (practicing way of life) and One language. That would make him the rightful leader of the world at that time. See the article on this Website called The Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy.


However, the context that this verse John (16: 11) is found in  can be logically approached by taking John (16: 7-14) as a unit and also according to the trials and tribulations of the Messiah-soul in travail Hebrews (9: 26) ‘since the foundation of the world’. Therefore in understanding this, one can most definitely say that Jesus (pbh) is that most blessed and holy leader returning again at the end of the age (the Fourth Age of man) as to leading the Islamic paradise on Earth BY ALLAH’s COMMAND and therefore he most certainly is NOT Satan!


And we know of this because his judgment and honor WAS GIVEN when he was taken up and cleared of the vicious slandering and blasphemies that were hurled (that he was an evil devil) and those that were to be hurled in the future against him (that he is more than a man). Thus, he became highly pleasing in the sight of his LORD worthy to be that leader of the blessed paradise on Earth under the unifying banner of Islam!


Behold! ALLAH said: “O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme…”    Q (3: 55)


“So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)”!         Q (19: 33)


In retrospect, this great prophet and future world leader, Jesus the son of Mary (pbh), was blessed when he was born and since he hasn’t died yet he will be blessed on his eventual death when he returns at the same age as when he left and then on ALLAH’s COMMAND he will be buried along with the Prophet of ALLAH (pbh) and be given (real unending) life again when he is raised up to be in attendance on that most terrible of days, the Day of Final Judgment! That life will not be in a kingdom that will face entropy or decay but will be forever and ever blest beyond the imaginations of what mankind can conceive.


Even in these final years before the Great Signs come upon us as described by Prophet Muhammad (pbh), man will run to-and-fro in the later years dreaming up fantastic nonsense as was stated by prophet Daniel (pbh) but many will NOT make the connection of reality nor change their thinking or ways. For that is the mystery and the condemnation has come to be reaped as it was sown and none can change HIS WAYS for HE IS THE POWER AND THE SUBLIME FULL OF PERFECT WISDOM AND JUDGMENT.


And this is the condemnation, that light {truth} is come into the world {brought to the dead by the prophets that they may awaken men unto life}, and {but most} men loved darkness {falsehoods} rather than light {truth}, because their deeds were evil {and they rejoiced in their evil}.                John (3: 19)


An interesting aside to this person Jesus (pbh) who was given along with his mother as a Sign unto mankind is the fact that in the Heavenly Paradise, NOT the earthly paradise, men and women will be of perpetual youth and not age. Their age will remain constant as if they are thirty-three years in permanence.


And WE made the son of Mary and his mother as a Sign: WE gave them both shelter on high ground affording rest and security and furnished with springs.    Q (23: 50)


So how old was Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) when he, as the representative man of the resurrection and judgment, was taken from this Earth for judgment and cleared of slanderous falsehood? He was thirty-three years old! Such a thing is definitely NOT a coincidence!


This method may appeal to high-powered scholars or people with advanced knowledge capable of handling these things but generally speaking the average man on the street will not be so impressed either from lack of knowledge or from the desire to maintain his status quo being afraid to ‘buck the system’ so to speak.


The second way of dealing with scriptures which is a lot easier is to deal with what concerns the prophecies about Muhammad (pbh) found in their Holy Books and in the earliest holy works of the Hindus represented by the Vedas and written several thousand years before the birth of Jesus (pbh). There are many instances found in the Holy Records that discuss Islam, the Arabs etc but finding the name of Muhammad/Ahmad in these records would show a truly amazing thing because the name of Jesus is not found directly in these books. For sure the prophecies of Muhammad and Jesus can be gleaned from these texts but the direct use of their names is another matter altogether.


The name of Muhammad is actually found in the Vedas, the Old Testament and the New Testament whereas the name of Jesus is not found in those previous scriptures before the New Testament. The name of Muhammad (pbh) is purportedly found in the Song of Solomon (5: 16) and Haggi (2: 7). Also note that in the Gospel of John the spirit of truth becomes Munhamanna in the Aramaic/Syriac language. The Greek versions do not have this name but then again Jesus (pbh) didn’t speak Greek and as we have seen in the above Greek invasion series, Greek manuscripts are not to be considered 100% accurate as they don’t represent the original language handed down as being from the Divine. However, many people seemingly trust these records as being 100% accurate even though a close inspection of true history shows that mankind is not as saintly as some would have us believe. In other words, why isn’t there a rejoicing among the ‘People of the Book’ instead of conflict? Why do so many sects of the same religion exist claiming truth above the other sects? Obviously, history is riddled with ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ so why should one who is careful be so gullible and careless?


So if the questioner can’t account for these things but tries to avoid the issue of discussion what then is the good of trying to get off the topic but to dodge a bullet? Therefore, the discussion is really closed because in the game of chess, for example, when the checkmate is called, the game is over. Not that religion is a game but it becomes one when the questioner fails to respond to the issue showing religious continuity and wants to impose his own ‘rules’ to avoid admitting that a Muslim has any actual leg to stand on.


This type of ‘trick’ is the kind of game played by those who have been bewitched into thinking that there is no other way but their way. Such a type of thinking has been played out before by various groups including the Flat Earth Society whose goal is to ignore everything except for their hollow claims. The trick being that if one downplays other people’s thoughts as faulty reasoning, then their theories become correct. Logically their stance is absurd but even so that will not affect their spurious way of thinking even when clear proof is presented against their arguments.


Another type of trick used by various religious types is to exclaim that because of so and so their lives have undergone a dramatic, miraculous change such that they are either filled with the spirit or that life in their proclaimed faith has given them an elevated and esoteric radiance. This is done basically to gain new converts to their point of view. However, a careful approach to understanding of this basic, highly personal, subjective and just about useless declaration can be shown from the light of all those who give vent to such beliefs. For example, those who believe in witchcraft and devil worship also claim a feeling of inner enlightenment, spiritual freedom and a type of ‘salvation’ that has freed their souls by granting them exultations from above. **


In all practicality, it is useless that man should be deceived by such circus nonsense as if to proclaim one should follow ‘their ways’ instead of looking for the truth because ‘they’ feel somehow blessed and you the common man are lowly in comparison. This smacks of nothing more than self-righteousness and grand delusions. The writings of Paul and that found in the Glorious Quran give warnings, each to its own style, about falling prey to such delusions. Even though we can be aware of these warnings, we cannot know the Mysteries of such. So it just suffices the believer to be on guard against all sorts of mystifying delusions that people, because of their own accord (dispositions) and what their hands have passed on before them, carry around in their hearts that will come back to haunt them in that they took the WORD of GOD as nothing but sport to gratify their inner desires or delusions.


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!


One of the earliest verses found in the Bible concerning Jesus (pbh) but not giving his name occurs in the book of Micah written approximately 750 years before he was born.


But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for ME one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose origin is from of old, from ancient days Micah (5: 2).


A careful and honest study of the scriptures reveals that the One God Who is Eternal and Absolute has no origin or beginning which is agreed upon by the all the true scriptures and that those who don’t have that belief have committed a monstrous form of blasphemy. It is clear from the above verse that even 750 years before Jesus (pbh) was born, his soul was considered ancient.  Ancient yes but also he had a beginning or origin and in no way does this equate with him being any more than a man as all souls according to Islam were brought forth from the loins of the children of Adam and given a stern declaration not to worship anything besides Allah, the One and Only True God. As to him being ruler in Israel, that occurs upon his second coming.


When your Lord drew forth from the children of Adam – from their loins – their descendents, and made them testify concerning themselves saying: “Am I not your Lord (Who cherishes and sustains you)?”  They said: “Yes, we do testify! “ (This), lest you should say on the Day of Judgment: “Of this we were never mindful “:

Or lest you should say: “Our fathers before us took false gods but we are (their) descendents after them: will You then destroy us because of the deeds of men who followed falsehood.”        Q (7: 172-173)


The third way, which is the most practical way, is to concentrate on the Magnificence, All Powerful and Knowledgeable Creator Lord Who created all that came into existence and without Whom nothing can function.


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.


Now Prophet Muhammad (pbh) talked of these things in a very moral, modest and sensitive way so it is not embarrassing for a Muslim to talk of these things and declare that he/she will not bow down to any created entity even if that entity is raised to a high rank. Such things may be Angles of the highest order or people like the prophets who ate food, urinated and defecated. Jesus, being a human being, ate food, urinated and defecated as did all the prophets. He deserves our respect by declaring the truth but he is not more than a human being raised to a high status as are all the prophets.


The good thing about this way is that it brings in the most essential element in any religion and that is the purpose of creation itself. Allah declares in His Pure Word (the Quran) that man as well as Jinn were created for one purpose only and that is the worshiping of only Him and no other.


Because Allah’s Pure Word declares the Eternal Truth and is protected by Him from corruption, there appears only two ways to look at this. Either people accept the Quran or they reject what Allah has declared holy and sacred. But in knowing this one must understand that even Allah’s Messenger Muhammad (pbh) was told that it wasn’t up to him to force people to follow the truth. Therefore, it is easy to let those who would argue against the Quran to be politely dismissed. This is so because no man can make the blind to see or the deaf to hear. If man wants to ‘stick to his guns’ i.e. if he wants to revel in his own folly of misunderstandings and wills his way over His Way (Allah’s Way), then that is his choice and all choices will indeed receive their just ‘reward’.


Besides this, modern day man is very much the same as the pagan Arabs of old who found themselves in a system that they admired and desperately wanted to cling to. Therefore, it would hardly be credible to reach most of men’s hearts when the heart remains closed. That is not the job of any human being but it is Allah’s job for He declared this Himself in several verses in the Quran.


Soon We will show them Our Signs in the (farthest) 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).


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).


The third way of dialog is by far the most practical and beneficial way when it comes time to discuss religious matters as between the various groups of religions. Winning an argument is not important. What is important is conveying a true message. Whether the message is taken seriously or not is not up to the presenter because even though as Allah says in His Word the Quran that truth stands out clear from error, it is up to the individual to respond in the way that he so sees fit. In trusting in our Creator Lord, one should understand that according to His Holy Words found in the Quran:


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


Therefore, one cannot overcome His Divine Will but must accept His decision in all things. So those whose hearts have been freed from corruption of joining partners with the One True God and those whose hearts have an innate fear of the Day of Accountability and seek out truth as opposed to all lies and deceptions will be guided to the right pathway no matter what condition they find themselves in because He Promised this and He is the One Who always keeps His Promise!


Because most people remain unaware of the basics of Islam, it is not correct to go into heavy detail about the religion. It is more practical to keep things simplified and let Allah move the individual‘s ‘spirit’ as He so chooses. Therefore, Muslims can explain what a Muslim is and what is Islam in the simplest terms without placing an undo burden on the seeker of truth. The rest of the job comes from within and according to hadith literature is tied to the individual’s capacity and incapacity as far as being able to seek out knowledge and implementing it.


The first stage – What is a Muslim? By definition, a Muslim can only be called a Muslim if he/she believes in the following:

  1. The One God Who is Eternal, Absolute and Unique and has no partners.
  2. Belief in His Angels
  3. Belief in His complete and total Revelations but only in their original format (written or non-written) and with respect.
  4. All of the prophets sent by Him of which there were 124,000 all told who came to every group of peoples that ever existed since prophethood began and without excluding anyone of the prophets including the last and final Messenger – Muhammad (pbh).
  5. A belief that Paradise and Hell-Fire exist.
  6. The belief that mankind will be resurrected on the Last Day and that mankind must undergo a Final Day of Judgment thereby making man accountable for his actions as he has been warned from before.
  7. The belief in the Divine Decree which is similar to but different in some respects to simple predestination and that this Divine Decree includes acceptance of that which man cannot know, unless He permits it, and that is called the knowledge of the Unseen and includes the acceptance of the capacity and incapacity (ability) possessed by the human being.


Along with these seven basic rules come the actions of praying as ‘we’ pray and fasting as ‘we’ fast and the person is entitled to be a Muslim.


The second stage – This stage is the developing stage or practicing stage.

  1. Following in understanding and compliance of the sayings and doings of the Prophet (pbh) as much as one is able to do so.
  2. The desire to become more God-conscious within the limits set by #1 and 7 (above).
  3. Being at peace between men and the natural surroundings.
  4. A love for mercy, justice and truth.
  5. Good character and manners as related by #1 and 7 (above).
  6. Adherence to the practices of the first four Caliphs or the righteous ones following the death of the beloved Prophet of Allah (pbh).


May Allah (‘Azza wa jal) accept this piece of writing.


*The Jews at that time required a ‘Sign’ such as to say, “Give us a sign and add to that sign, sign after sign or else we won’t believe.” Thus they were confounded in their arrogance and were rejected from following the true Messiah.


The ‘Greeks’, on the other hand, believed in their own worldly wisdom above the faith of The Way. Therefore, they also fell into the trap of disbelief and were confounded in their arrogance.


All of the true religions show a pattern of Divine Oneness but use different languages and expressions. Islam does not use biblical terms but expresses this ‘crucifixion of the flesh’ for the believers in discussing the ‘Jihad of the nefs’ such that one can say that the believer should place himself under the constraints of his faith in trusting in Allah rather than following the perversions of the world. Therefore, a real honest and close look at the New Testament in proclaiming that Jesus (pbh) was ‘crucified in the flesh’ does Not refer to a physical crucifixion on a cross but rather his devotion to his Creator Lord in surrendering to His Will in obedience and love.


And so the worldly, for the reasons given in both the New Testament and the Quran, have become confounded by which their deeds will be made of no effect and do not enter into The Way, the Way of all the prophets in true guidance.


The problem in dealing with the ‘epistles’ especially the epistles attributed to Paul are many and varied. The epistle is commonly taken as a whole concept given as advice but without the knowledge of how it was formed. However, when one looks at it in a holistic way some of the difficulties in understanding their purpose becomes clearer.


The epistles were meant to be just abridged reminders that went hand-in-hand with instructional dialog. Because no one claims that Paul came to a certain place and stayed only one hour while handing out a written record while beating a hasty retreat out of town, it behooves the one who studies these things to be practical.


The first step in the teachings or passing down of information comes from the visit to that particular locality usually in a stay of several months or in some cases several years. The next step is to write down the major points incorporated in those teachings. The last step is encapsulating these points as epistles (based on a thorough knowledge as given beforehand or written epistles to a community as a reminder of what was discussed on a previous visit but still giving problems especially in the light of new converts or ‘contentions’ arising in the community based on discord (Fitna) between varied factions.


The next problem comes from just who writes these epistles. That is, who is responsible for these abridged lessons or shortened notes? Generally speaking all of the dynamic speakers including Paul had a secretary writing things down on the author’s approval. That is not saying that these epistles were not originally written down in true faith. However, there is no guarantee that they would remain that way as the years passed such that the varied factions could corrupt certain ideas depending on who was head of these various factions. So the word epistle is not meant to convey a deep total knowledge or philosophy but just a short abridged notion. As an example of this we can take one of Paul’s sayings:


Therefore, brothers, stand fast, and hold {to} the traditions {Sunnah} which you have been taught, whether by word or our epistle.      2 Thessalonians (2:15)


Where is this Sunnah of Jesus (pbh)? It is true that in one of Paul’s epistles he declares about 8 or 10 things a believer should do in following the practices of Jesus (pbh) but that would hardly be considered an in depth teaching of the Sunnah of Jesus (pbh). Because the epistles (any epistle) is not meant to be a complete book of an by itself, it is only logical that they are taken only as short notes and reminders to that particular community that it was addressed to rather than great spiritual teachings. Unfortunately, that also makes them easier to be corrupted as time went on because of factional wars held between the various schools of thought that were rampant from 35 AC due to Pharisaical Jewish interference to approximately 150 AC mainly due to Greek philosophical interference. And this is not talking about massive corruptions but rather ‘slight’ changes in words and meanings to suit a purpose.


**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.


So who are they who try and conspire against this holy man (Jesus) and prophet of Allah? They should be ashamed of themselves for placing their empty whims above the very words of one whom they claim to love. In other words, they have no legitimate leg to stand on. Therefore, truly the game is over!


***The problem with those Christians who believe that Jesus is their ‘god’ and with them not accepting Jesus (pbh) as the ‘Prince of this world’ (the leader of this world) who has been judged (John 16: 11) comes from their inability to accept truth and shows their dogged determination to hold onto corrupt philosophical teachings.


The proof for this is many but the idea is a simple one. How can their ‘god’ be called or regulated to the idea of being ONLY A PRINCE? That would be derogatory and outright foolish to even the mind of a small child. Hence, how can they accept the notion that Jesus (pbh) is the Prince of this world and has been judged? After all and it is true, who in their right mind could ever believe that GOD could be judged as that notion is evil and extremely repugnant!!!


The mystery of the soul remains a mystery as does the mystery of the grave. And the mystery of what took place in the tomb that Jesus (pbh) reportedly inhabited for a few days is also a mystery and so those who discuss these things without understanding are probably doing more harm and filling the world with more confusing bilge than is necessary.


However, in several of my writings including the book, The Non-Crucifixion of Jesus I discussed in a few small, minor aspects some of these things but only on the periphery and not in great detail. So these things should suffice with the understanding of the Quran, hadith material and New Testament.


Basically what can be known of these events are a few things that are harmonized in the scriptures. Other than that, physical words cannot describe such lofty spiritual events and should not, in my opinion, even be attempted. That, however, does not mean to go ahead and ignore the scriptures as all human beings can learn to appreciate their value.


So in putting it together in a rather small package, it looks something like this:

Jesus (pbh) is a man and men have souls. These souls are in existence before entering the womb as they poured forth from the back of the first human Adam (pbh) so very long ago. When ALLAH WILLS and only when HE WILLS the souls are sent down to Earth to inhabit their appointed physical growing fetus.


The soul does NOT name the time, place nor condition but this has been appointed for him or her by that ALL PERVASIVE AND DOMINATING ONE WHOM men call THE ONE and ONLY GOD.


So Jesus (pbh) LIKE ALL MEN came down from heaven (LIFE) and entered into the physical arena we happen to call life. However, he had a ‘double job’ to do as Jesus (pbh). We can safely say from scriptural knowledge that he was born a prophet, became the ‘chosen Messiah’ and left the world for a determined period.


Then, according to his promise to the one who was crucified in his place, he must make all things well but only with the permission of ALLAH as ALLAH is FULL OF BOUNTY AND GRATITUDE TO HIS EXCELLENT SLAVES AND SERVANTS.

And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto you, “Today you shall be with me in paradise.”     Luke (23: 43)


So it can be given to him (Jesus) to ‘sleep’ and be raised up with the one who offered his own life as to the person who took Jesus’ place on the cross. But with ALLAH’s PERMISSION, what goes up can come down and so it is reported that Jesus (pbh) visited (stayed on) the Earth for ‘forty days’ after his passion (Acts 1: 3). Then he returned to his appointed temporary abode or dwelling place in the Heavens.


As it is reported in a credible hadith: It is important for Muslims to remember that Prophet Muhammad (pbh) stated that it was alright to mention stories from the ‘Jews and Christians’ but these stories are NOT to be said as being either true or false unless of course they are in agreement with Islam.


While on Earth, he (Jesus) had to complete his task of overcoming the world as to being that faithful servant who would remain sinless. He was not left alone to accomplish this but was given a special guarding force to keep him from stumbling and falling into sin (Luke 4: 10-11) or be rejected as the rightful Messiah and what that job implies.


Whatever he (pbh) allegedly accomplished inside the tomb even though he was NOT crucified NOR killed, must demonstrate that he rightfully being the Messiah had reached a certain level of excellence and with that excellence could accomplish certain things permitted for him to accomplish.


Allegedly the New Testament Gospels try to put this spiritual essence in words which admittedly is a near impossibility. It boils down to a few so-called spiritual facts that people have a difficult time understanding especially since the Gospels have been re-worked several times to ‘fit in’ certain principles.


The following excerpt is taken from the book The Non-Crucifixion of Jesus p. 135:

“In the New Testament, Jesus is also challenged to perform a function on himself as in:

And he (Jesus) said to them, “You will surely say to me this proverb”, ‘Physician, heal thy self: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in your country’. Luke (4: 23)


That is to say that you (querulous people) are telling me about the signs that I have been given from my LORD to perform and that you see with your own eyes that if I am the one who I am (the real Messiah) that I have to perform that what I do on myself or else you won’t believe!!! Read that verse again and again to sense its meaning.


So the question is, “How could two bodies become one?” is like asking how can a body enter through a solid wall? Or it is like asking, “How could Prophet Muhammad (pbh) in one night make a journey from Arabia to Jerusalem and then ascend up to the 7 levels of heaven and back down again and return to Arabia in less than a day?” Or perhaps it is asking, “How could Jesus walk on water and multiply the loaves and fishes or how could Prophet Muhammad (pbh) crack the moon in half?”


The answer is simple. For those who have faith let them have faith and for those who are querulous, let them be querulous.”


As a vicegerent Jesus would have left the ‘tomb’ but requested not to be touched (John 20: 17) until he arose for he had NOT yet donned his new mantel. And as a vicegerent-man, he would have needed to open doors to get into a room. But being arisen and sent back as a Vicegerent-Man to appear unto his chosen followers at various spaced-out times in order to cement his reality and protect for a space of time the truth of that what he was permitted to accomplish, he would need not to open doors to get into a room.


And he said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was yet with you that all things must be fulfilled which were written 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 {mysteries} of the scriptures {and be satisfied in their hearts that this was the truth}.                  Luke (24: 44-45)

Behold! The Disciples said: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Can your LORD send down to us a Table set (with viands) from heaven?” Jesus said, “Fear ALLAH, if you {do indeed} have faith.”


They said, “We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts and to know that you {really} have indeed told us the truth; and that we ourselves be witnesses to the miracle.”


Jesus the son of Mary said, “O ALLAH our LORD! Send us from Heaven a Table set (with viands) that there may be for us – for the first and the last of us – a Solemn Festival and a SIGN from YOU; and provide for our sustenance, for YOU are the BEST SUSTAINER (of our needs).”


ALLAH said, “I WILL send it down unto you; but if any of you AFTER THAT resists faith, I WILL punish him with a CHASTISEMENT such as I HAVE NOT INFLICTED ON ANY ONE AMONG ALL THE PEOPLES.”     Q (5: 112-115)


People may be thinking that it would take days, weeks or years to rise up to the Heavens and then days, weeks or years to come down again but that would be wrong. So when Jesus (pbh) next appeared in front of his chosen disciples, he appeared NOT as a vicegerent-man but as a Vicegerent-Man.


And this difference is attempted to be given in the Gospels which allegedly shows a different Jesus whom the disciples knew and according to the New Testament remained for forty days after his passion to be then lifted up until all things were prepared for his Final Return.


However, his job as Jesus the Real Messiah (pbh) is NOT finished for the kingdom has not yet been set nor have the blessings in that Earthly paradise been given. So he has to return but he doesn’t return as another person but as himself! Therefore, as it has been reported, he will come AGAIN as he left in order to do the completion of the job expected of the Messiah and be that leader or Prince of the world of a New World Order as to the Earthly paradise under the banner of Islam.


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)


And without breaking scripture, it is appointed for man to die but once (Hebrews 9: 27)! So now we can understand more fully the words of Jesus, “So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I {eventually} die and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)!”        Q (19: 33)

It is absolutely true! Jesus (pbh) was born and will NOT be born again. He hasn’t died the physical death that ALL men must die but when he returns, he shall rein in the kingdom that ALLAH has given him and then he will die after living 45 years on this Earth.


So his prayer to the ONE GOD was for his actual death, that is, when it shall come about SO THAT HE WOULD RAISE UP TO ETERNAL BLISS FOREVER AND FOREVER THAT WOULD HAVE NO END WITH NO MORE JOB FOR HIM TO ACCOMPLISH.


So upon his death, he will be placed in the very RICH (spiritually speaking) BLESSED GRAVE of Prophet Muhammad (pbh) (Isaiah 53: 9) and both of them will arise together for the Judgment that will come. And because he (Jesus) is a man and his job will be finished as to the delivering of what has to be delivered (of those souls of that kingdom) why would he enter into ‘worldly’ life again when he will be in the MOST BLESSED AND HIGHEST OF EXCELLENT ABODES?


And we do have a moderate description in the reputable hadiths of those types of highest abodes that are reserved especially only for the prophets (peace be upon them all). Those places are so awesome that words are hardly able to begin to describe them. However, a few of the steadfast and loyal worshipers will be able to visit those abodes and that is a very great blessing for them.


So when Jesus (pbh) is reportedly speaking against those who claim to have been his followers, we can imagine that it is NOT in the Earthly paradise this action takes place but at his Pond at the time of Judgment and all prophets have been given a Pond in the Heavens by which their respective followers come as is shown in trustworthy hadiths.


And like what the Prophet (pbh) has described concerning his ‘false’ followers at his Pond so also does Jesus (pbh) reject those who claim to be his followers at his Pond but have practiced delusional falsehood.


Not everyone that says to me, lord, lord shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven but he that does the WILL of my FATHER which is in Heaven.


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 will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.     Matthew (7: 21-23)

There is no contradiction in Islam about this. That kingdom given to Jesus (pbh) on Earth, the Earthly paradise, will not be a place for a debating society or to argue with Jesus (pbh). So how could those wretched souls approach Jesus (pbh) in this Earthly paradise and strike up an argument with him when Jesus (pbh) has been given that power to eradicate hypocrisy with his breath as far as his eyes can see as is reported in truthful hadiths?


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.

These two articles will hopefully give the reader the understanding or linkage of the ‘spiritual connection’ of the Jewish and Christian strange love/hate relationship especially in dealing with Islam.
