The Quran is the most amazing book that is found on planet Earth. It is very precise and super concentrated while able to deliver the outlines of specific things in graphic detail but couched in simplified form when unraveled especially in the Arabic Language.

In knowing the cyclical nature of life (there is nothing new under the Sun idea), one can find realities that cross cultural lines and different climes and times. In other words, it is a Book for all times and seasons which is capable of handling the vagaries of life itself!

Here is a short but meaningful look at the term ‘Son of GOD’ based on a sample of a unified version of scripture and history and hence, the science of Comparative Religion. Much like a recipe, the ingredients must be put together to arrive at a comprehensive understanding.

And to warn those who say, “ALLAH {GOD} has begotten a son.”

No knowledge did they have of such a thing. NOR had their fathers {from very ancient times}. Mighty is the word that comes out of their mouths. They {who claim that Jesus is a divine being/son of GOD} utter nothing but a lie.                  Quran (18:4-5)

The term ‘son of GOD’ did not arise out of thin air. In fact, the New Testament (an amazing if not perfect set of books) gives us a clue to this strange yet familiar (to the Christians) concept. Familiar but hidden knowledge kept in darkness so as not to allow the ‘common man’ to ask many questions!

Before the time of father Abraham (pbh), the father of the monotheistic worldly faiths featuring Judaism, Christianity and Islam, other beliefs (after all, the world has been sent over 120,000 prophets according to Islamic hadiths) had divided the world into two major categories fighting for world dominion: The sons of light and the sons of darkness.

While the sons of light were those who practiced self-absorption in doing good, the sons of darkness opposed these worshipers and went on a pathway of self-glorification and self-gratification that was to lead them to eventual destructive and addictive forces (practicing various evil ways)! This was the classification of mankind so very long ago!

Simply put, the doers of good were likened to the sons of the Light while the doers of bad were likened to the sons of darkness. The so-called Regulators of these thoughts became what we now generically call the priest class and they were responsible for organizing and developing the conditions for their groups’ faith and practices before recorded history.

Not every apple of that bunch was spiritually guided to correctness, however. Some had tainted hearts and made pronouncements akin to dogma which needed to be followed by their adherents. So, one can suggest that if one serves the ONE GOD and HE is THE LIGHT, then one can be called sons of this LIGHT which then is made into the equivalent of HIS SONS or the SONS of GOD concept!!!

In other words, whether on purpose or not, they mixed the leaven with the lump and this eventually created a false scenario. When one mixes the leaven with the lump, the whole batch becomes polluted (changed) such that it may look like the original batch but it will now perform and taste much differently than the original non leavened lump!

According to Paul:

Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?

Therefore let us celebrate the feast, NOT with old leaven, NOR with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened {pure} bread of sincerity and truth.                                                            1 Corinthians (5:6, 8).

The leaven is also compared to the parable given by Jesus (pbh) of a garden of weeds. Anyway one slices it, we are dealing with religious corruption. And this corruption started a very, very long time ago thousands of years before the institution of our Abrahamic beliefs beginning with Father Abraham in what is sometimes referred as the ‘Cradle of Civilization’ which was Babylon!

It is important to note that our religious leaders should be held to account for what they have done and in the following hadith there is an explanation of how some of these corrupt officials operate!

A hadith (saying) from `Adi bin Hatim, who became Christian during the time of Jahiliyah (time of ignorance). When the call of the Messenger of ALLAH reached his area, `Adi ran away to Ash-Sham, and his sister and several of his people were captured. The Messenger of ALLAH freed his sister and gave her gifts. So she went to her brother and encouraged him to become Muslim and to go to the Messenger of ALLAH. `Adi went to the Messenger of ALLAH wearing a silver cross around his neck. The Messenger of ALLAH recited this Verse from the Quran:

They {the worshipers} take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of ALLAH, and (they take as their LORD) Christ the son of Mary; yet they were commanded to worship but One ALLAH: there is no god but HE. Praise and glory to HIM: (FAR, FAR is HE) from having the partners they associate (with HIM). Quran (9:31):

`Adi commented by saying: “They {people} did not worship them {the so-called religious guides}.” The Prophet said, (Yes they did). They {to be interpreted) rabbis, monks/priests/ministers} prohibited what was allowed for them (Christians and Jews) and allowed the prohibited, and they {the common followers} obeyed these people. This is how they worshipped them. The Messenger of ALLAH then invited `Adi to embrace Islam, and he embraced Islam and pronounced the Testimony of Truth. *

* {It is often stated by Muslims that Pauline Christianity (supposedly started by Paul but in reality started by the church as a philosophical movement in order to bring about certain distinctions that would be favored by the political pagan bosses at that time) abrogated the many ‘Jewish Religious Laws’ (called in Arabic by the term Shariah).

This statement is incorrect as has been reported in these writings. Rather it is the above hadith featuring the Muslim ‘Adi bin Hatim that makes it completely clear that the clergy/law makers interpreted Paul for their own benefit in order to make a distinction between Jews and the bourgeoning Christian populations}.

As declared by Jesus (pbh), “And in vain {in uselessness} they {the corrupted people}worship me, {by} teaching as doctrines the commandments of men {that which has not been sent down by the ONE GOD}.”  Matthew (15:9). That is they make up their own doctrines NOT declared openly in their own Holy Books and sanctioned from the ONE they claim to worship so as to provide some earthly advantage.

And he who overcomes, and keeps my works {that is, the TRUE FAITH in deed and practice instead of falsehoods} until the end, to him I will give power over the nations {that is, he shall be made great in stature and exalted in rank}

And he {the Christ-soul} shall rule them with a rod of iron {when he returns}; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my FATHER.  Rev (2:26-27)

Now as to the further evidence as to the invention of the notion that GOD has so-called sons which has infected both the Old and New Testament given much later after the coming of Abraham (pbh):

The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet {the priestly colors}, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls {having authority to declare things}, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication {the collection of her deeds of trying to besmear the true Laws of GOD}.

And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, and THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH {or that which breaks the first commandment of worshiping none but the ONE GOD, the greatest commandment of them all}.  Revelation (17:4, 5)

As to the term the son and making it a relationship to the ONE GOD:

{Once again the Quran states}:

And to warn those who say, “ALLAH has begotten a son.”

No knowledge did they have of such a thing. NOR had their fathers {from very ancient times}. Mighty is the word that comes out of their mouths. They {who claim that Jesus is a divine being/son of GOD} utter nothing but a lie.                          Quran (18:4-5)

And because of this ‘holy war’ continually fought between the sons of light and the sons of darkness we can see:

I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs{those who kept the faith} of Jesus {the Christ-soul throughout the Ages as he has made his grave with the sinners (wicked) {common people who are not puffed up with false pride}(Isaiah Chapter 53)}. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement. **      Rev (17:6)

**{The emphasis on Jesus (pbh) here represents the fact that he is the one to return as chief priest of the ONE GOD in this promised kingdom as a spiritual leader unto his kingdom which will be led and blessed in the personage of the Islamic Mahdi who shall be ruler of this entire kingdom.}

Jesus said {as a reminder to the people}: “And in vain {do} they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men {and NOT of GOD}”.                      Matthew (15:9)

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone desires to come after me {follow me to success}, let him deny himself {control his earthly passions}, and take up his cross {that which counters the negative and turns it into a positive}, and follow me {in obedience to GOD’s Will/Plan/Desire}.             Matthew (16:24)

The cross in NOT a universal symbol but it is a UNIVERSAL CONCEPT. It equals Jihad al-Kabeer in Arabic or the struggle of the inner self through the act of worshiping THE ONE GOD and not self. This is done through prayer, fasting, alms giving, and other religious duties such as dhikr (remembrance of GOD) etc. This then is the true meaning of the cross and NOT the wooden stake as the false philosophers’ pursued!

And that dear readers confirms that, according to the declaration found in the Dead Sea Scrolls concerning the Spirit of truth, he will be a CLEANSING SPIRIT. The notion of a cleansing spirit is to bring the clean truth that is free from adulteration and to refresh the Way of True Worship that erring man has allowed to enter his practices of devotion to his loving GOD.

Unfortunately, this is the world we live in at the moment and that means that there can be no long time stability of truth due to the factors of constant warfare drummed up by forces of evil which act to cull the wicked from the blessed ones.

And due to the fact that everything comes to fruition (on the Last Day of Judgment), the WAY must be won out, the victors be rewarded for their trials under fire and the guilty must receive their duly earned punishments as was promised in the beginning!

So, this is the war between the sons of light and the sons of darkness; between good and evil each striving for a goal where one pathway will lead to success and the other pathway to ruin. And it is the choice of each and every soul to make its own direction.

“Long Is the Way and hard, that out of Hell leads up to light” – a quote from Paradise Lost by John Milton.


Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and {what was preached by} the prophets.

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter into it.

Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to {REAL} LIFE, and there are few who find it.        Matthew (7:12-14)
