“Do they not then THINK DEEPLY in the Quran, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)?”     Quran (47:24)

Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim.                          (Ibn Mājah)

Religion should be studied as if one is attempting to make a real atomic bomb with the addition of making nitroglycerin on the side. Knowledge of this does not come overnight nor is it very practical to rush through things if one wants to live a long, healthy life.

In the total religious history of mankind featuring many, many different religions there has ONLY BEEN ONE TRUE CLAIMANT* of Pure Religious Truth. Think about it!

                                {*Meaning that this claimed ‘purity’ is NOT by the followers of that said religion or religious experience but the claim comes from the ‘HOLY BOOK’ itself and is used as the basis for that particular belief system.}

That means that there has been some problem coming from somewhere if that statement is true. Either from the side of GOD making this problem or from mankind’s side. In knowing true history one can therefore be able to deduce the fact that it is from the ‘corruptible side of man‘ where the real problem lies.

In other words, people tend to twist things to their own advantage/desires in order to protect their interests (money, position in the community, power or status). And these CORRUPT individuals will go to any length to remain the major focus, thrust or power in that religious field or philosophy!

Two of the main ways people can accomplish this most heinous act (falsehoods against the ONE GOD) are through the lies of forgery, for example, fake hadiths or Gospels, or the common, purposeful mistranslation!**

                            {**Both forgery and mistranslations are done to support artificial or wrong beliefs held by various groups while at the same time proving that these homespun, made up beliefs actually exist as well as to show, for example, that the real, correct belief is false. The latter is an example of a common form of misdirection which the artful and crafty dodger of truth is skilled at using!}

The above tricks are for the people who have a vested interest in these ‘strange’ but false philosophies BUT THE ATTRACTION OR STAYING POWER FOR THESE FALSEHOODS RESTS WITH THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE A ‘JOY FOR THESE UNTRUTHSLOCKED UP IN THEIR HEARTS. Therefore, they are attracted to these bizarre religious doctrines or philosophies and take them as absolute and believable truth!

My last ten or fifteen articles have running through them certain religious quotes showing some of these traits and offering proof for what I have been saying.

Here are three things one can readily look at on a religious scale which of course should have repercussions concerning religious truth:

#1. Did Jesus himself (pbh) tell the truth about his supposed death/crucifixion or was he a boastful liar bereft of normal intelligence?

#2. Can we understand the Mother of Jesus in a better light by using the Quran while reflecting on the reality or non-reality of Quranic insight?

#3. If something can help us that is NOT directly mentioned by the Prophet (pbh) are we in danger of falling for a short form of disbelief.

#1. I have used in many various articles, etc. certain inroads into the ‘crucifixion mystery’ to explain why Jesus (pbh) was NOT crucified and what perhaps occurred during that time. It is NOT a major ‘OUTWARD‘ emphasis in Islam and the knowledge of such would appear skimpy at best. That, however, is most definitely not true!!! as I have shown.

However, I would like to just center most of the case to be presented by giving just one example in the words of Jesus (pbh) himself. In this way, the ‘proverbial gun’ is directly pointed at Jesus himself and he either is speaking the truth or he is on a flim-flam mission to deceive!

When Jesus (pbh) is saying something as quoted in the New Testament, he is putting his reputation on the line. I do not need at this time to discuss what Paul, Peter or anyone thought. I have already done that.

What matters the most is taken directly right from the horse’s mouth as one might colloquially say! Therefore, either Jesus (pbh) is telling the truth or he is lying. You be the judge!

I CAN OF {and by} mine own self DO NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek NOT {to do} mine own will, but the will of the FATHER {WHO} which has sent me.                John (5:30)

And I have other sheep, who are NOT of this {immediate} fold {of which I am currently sent to}; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice {obey my call to PURE Islam when I return}. So there shall be {but} ONE FLOCK {OR FAITH OR RELIGIOUS ENTITY IN THE END}, {and} one {ruler over them} shepherd {that is myself as the returned Messiah}.

FOR THIS REASON {OF TOTAL SURRENDER TO HIS WILL/PLAN} the FATHER loves me, BECAUSE I lay down my life, that I may take it {UP} AGAIN.

{ABSOLUTELY} NO ONE TAKES IT FROM ME, but I lay it {my life} down of my own accord. I have {BEEN GIVEN THE} power to lay it down, and I have {BEEN GIVEN THE} power to take it {UP} AGAIN; this charge {or GIFT}*** I have received from my FATHER.”                                 John (10:16-18)

                      {***Those prophets WE endowed with gifts some above others: to one of them ALLAH spoke; others HE raised to degrees (of honor); to Jesus the son of Mary WE gave clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit. If ALLAH had so willed succeeding generations would not have fought among each other AFTER clear (Signs) had come to them but they (chose) to wrangle some believing and others rejecting. If ALLAH had so willed they would not have fought each other; but ALLAH FULFILLS HIS {MIGHTY} PLAN.  Quran (2:253)}

If Jesus (pbh) were to die even for a nanosecond by the hands of any human being be they male or female, pagan or claimed believer, he would be guilty of speaking a lie according to the verses above. That is according to his very own words!!!

‘NO ONE TAKES IT (MY LIFE) FROM ME’ means anyone at anytime under any condition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If that were not so, Jesus would be guilty of a flagrant exaggeration. In other words, he would be telling a fraudulent lie!!! That is because NO ONE means no human being or any other living creature!

So, according to a truthful Jesus (pbh), people could try to kill him by stoning, hanging, crucifixion or any other method BUT THEY WOULD FAIL MISERABLY. And if he did NOT die, he could NOT have been killed or surrendered his soul on account of any violent action supposedly done to him. THAT IS JUST SIMPLE LOGIC!!!


And when we look at it as being a metaphorical expression other possibilities open up for us when trying to ‘align’ the various scriptures discussing his various trials and tribulations!

Knowing full well that time and times and circumstances are up to ALLAH and HE does NOT show HIS mysteries until HE WILLS it and HE determines how much HE intends to show – ALL DONE BY HIS WILL AND HIS CHOICE!

It is also helpful to know GOD’s PROMISE to Jesus (pbh) such that: his people could NOT directly or indirectly cause him any physical pain. They could be a nuisance but otherwise COULD NOT IN THE LEAST HINDER HIS TRUE DESTINY!****

{****…And recall when I restrained the Israelites from {doing harm to} you when you came to them with clear proofs {of your Divine mission} whereupon those of them who disbelieved said: “This is nothing but clear magic.”  Quran (5:110)}

Following this line of thinking, one can now understand that a pierced (hands, feet and chest) of Jesus would not be a fun thing to go through. In fact, IT WOULD BE VERY PAINFUL INDEED! And because Jesus (pbh) was protected from his own peoples’ desires and wishes of trying to hurt, wound or kill him, which is the same as if they did the piercing and stabbing, Jesus could NOT have been put on the cross!

Hence, we have this saying from the Quran concerning a matter which is part of a light thrown to man of the Unseen:

and their saying: ‘We {the Pharasee-type Jews} killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary’, the Messenger of ALLAH whereas in fact they HAD NEITHER SLAIN HIM NOR CRUCIFIED HIM BUT SO IT WAS MADE TO APPEAR UNTO THEM and those {various factions from earlier and later times} who differed about it were in a state of doubt! They have NO DEFINITE KNOWLEDGE of it, but merely follow {their own WILLFUL} conjecture; and for sure, THEY DID NOT KILL HIM.

but ALLAH raised him to HIMSELF {WHEN HE SO CHOSE TO DO SO}. ALLAH is {INDEED THE} All-Mighty, All-Wise.                                    Quran (4:157-158)

Of course there are lots of other proofs concerning the non-crucifixion but this article is not going to rehash these things. Suffice it to say that my other articles deal with these contentious things.

#2. Strictly speaking the Quran does not mention Qumran in Palestine as the place where Mary the mother of Jesus became miraculously found with child. However, a deep study into the relationships between related families of John the Baptist (pbh) and Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) and historical realities of the ‘times’ CONCERNING MESSIANIC BELIEFS should go forth to just about prove that is what is meant (the location) of Mary’s pregnancy.

And mention in the Scripture Mary, when she withdrew from her people {their normal daily life} to an eastern location*****                       Quran (19:16).

             {*****This ‘eastern location’ is the Headquarters of the Essenes Sect of Jews at the place called Qumran which is also the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls were recovered!}

There were a few Jewish sects at the time of Jesus’ birth. The major one was the Pharisees. There were also the Sadducees, the Zealots and the Essenes plus just a few insignificant others. The Sadducees did not believe in an afterlife nor a Messianic figure. The Pharisees and the Essenes did.

The Pharisees were famously cursed by Jesus (pbh) ‘you villains, vipers and hypocrites (Matthew 23******) as they had a ‘me first‘ attitude to salvation and the eventual coming of ‘their’ Messiah.

                {******Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples:

“The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat.

So you must obey them and do {righteousness in} everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.

They tie up heavy loads and put them on men’s shoulders {they overburden their followers}, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

“Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long;

they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues;

they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them `Rabbi.’

“But you are not to be called `Rabbi,’ for you have only one Master and you are all brothers.

And do not call anyone on earth `father,’ {LORD} for you have one FATHER {LORD}, and HE is in heaven.

For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices–mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law–justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.

You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.

Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish {YOUR SOULS}, and then the outside also will be clean.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.

In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous.

“You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?    (Matthew 23:1-9;12-13;15;23-29;33)}

The Essenes, on the other hand, had a strong Messianic belief and a connection with some of the prophets of old. They believed in a man-type Messiah and were active in asking the ONE GOD in trying to bring it about, through their varied practices, due to the Roman occupation and other Jewish nonsense, namely the dominance of Pharisee shenanigans.

It is very much thought that John the Baptist (pbh) was a member of the Essenes sect and he, as a wonderful and wise prophet, was related to Jesus (pbh) and was somewhat of an intimate friend of his.

Following this trail, one can imagine a religious scenario developing into a secret society whereby competitiveness, skullduggery and other such traits could be eliminated through clandestine means. That turns out the best way to handle these things when there is a lethal clash of philosophies between the Pharisees and the Essenes sects.

A deeply religious folk hoping that the Messiah will come through their holy chalice (the female body of their sect) is what the Essenes were all about.

Therefore, it was ‘schooling-time’ for hopeful daughters of religiously chosen people to undergo some type of training and isolation at one of their centers so as to hopefully have that ‘spirit’ enter into a body or purified chalice (cleaned by water and a healthy diet of the right kind of foods) and to grow forth into a man to be known as the Messiah!

So, the mother of Mary would not send her very youthful daughter out into the night to go Eastward on dangerous highways filled with possible criminals except with an escort and for a very special purpose!!!

The purpose was NOT to learn a skill like being a seamstress or ditch digger. In context, Bethlehem is about 30 to 40 kilometers from Qumran while the City of Nazareth is slightly more than 100 kilometers from the Qumran and therefore, an escort would have been necessary.

The religious angle for Mary traveling Eastward is most logical. And being that her family was related to individuals who were prophets and being deeply religious, it only makes sense that she would go to a place where she could be protected and taken care of under the right conditions and philosophical leanings. Hence, Qumran!

Qumran was two things. On the outside it was a business front so as to keep prying eyes away. Prying eyes would be very dangerous as the Essenes and Pharisees literally hated each other.

On the inside of this compound-like structure certain rituals could be performed in private with nobody the wiser. Hence, a calming feeling of going about one’s business was a major reason for being there.

One often hears in English that ‘THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING’ meaning that … you can only judge the quality of something after you have tried, used, or experienced it and what can be added to this is and to dwell openly and honestly about it.

She (Mary the mother of Jesus) screened herself away {was cloistered} from them {the peoples at this place}, and WE sent to her OUR spirit, and he appeared to her as an immaculate human.

She said, “I take refuge from you in the Most Merciful, should you be righteous.”

He said, “I am only the messenger of your LORD, to give you the {news of a} gift of a pure son.”

She said, “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, and I was never unchaste?”

He said, “Thus said your LORD, `It is easy for ME, and WE will make him a SIGN for {ALL} humanity {IF THEY WOULD BUT ACCEPT IT}, and a Mercy from US. It is a matter already decided.’“                Quran (19:16-21)

Say: “Nothing shall ever happen to us except what ALLAH has ordained for us. HE is our Mawla (PROTECTOR/GUIDE).” And in ALLAH let the believers put their trust.) – Quran (9:51)

Prophet Muhammad (pbh) said, “The most accurate and truthful speech {that can be found in this world} is the BOOK of ALLAH”             (Nisa’i)

“And when OUR verses are recited to them as clear evidences, those who do NOT expect the meeting with US say, “Bring us a Qur’an {other holy book or reading} other than this or change it {to something that we can agree with or what we may hanker after in the hidden recesses of our hearts}.” Say, (O Muhammad), “It is NOT for me to change it on my own accord. I only follow {THE PERFECT DESIGNS OF MY LORD as to} what is revealed to me {according to HIS WILL and for HIS PURPOSES ONLY}. Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my LORD, the punishment of a tremendous Day {will come upon me}.”             Quran (10:15)

#3. New Age groups sometimes delve into things that are not very well understood. Truthfully, there are mysteries out there that might take months if not decades of study to put things into their proper perspective!

One of these things is the use of and or belief in the ‘healing or magical properties’ of certain objects. The claims may be somewhat true BUT THAT IS NOT THE POINT!!! We are not in our own little universe making our own little laws!!!!!!!!!!

People have a dangerous tendency to apply healings, etc. to objects without the proper orientation! Such that such and such object ‘did such and such a thing for me’ etc.

Islam puts the proper perspective on it and calls these actions ‘minor Shirk‘ or forms of disbelief! In truth, we can go to the Quran and sense that people tens of thousands of years ago followed the practices of ‘THE ANCIENTS’ or ancient ones******* and were misled into false beliefs such as attributing rain to some so-called lucky star or various healings to certain materials they used or wore or other banal things.

{*******And truly before them, many of the ancients went astray,- Quran (37:71)

It is much like the actually proven scenario filmed long ago of a tribe of primitive, indigenous people seeing an airplane for the first time and then making a stick and straw copy of that plane to worship like some divine being!

To make a long story short, Islam provides the harmonious balance of how people should go about their actions and belief activities. This is done by giving ALLAH TOTAL, ABSOLUTE CREDIT AND NOT THE OBJECT THOUGHT TO BE DOING THE DEED.

Furthermore, there are sayings of the Prophet (pbh) giving directions and Duas to say in appealing to ALLAH so that the worshiper and the WORSHIPED ONE (ALLAH – WHO is THE ALL AWARE, THE ALL MIGHTY) are aligned on the same frequency. A crude way of putting it but somewhat fairly accurate.

Religion-wise we can learn much from Prophet Muhammad’s (pbh) last sermon:

Prophet Muhammad (pbh) delivered his last sermon (Khutbah)  in the Uranah Valley of Mount Arafat. His words were quite clear and concise and were directed to the entire humanity********.

After praising, and thanking ALLAH he said in part:

                       {********“O people … Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.

Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O people, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to.

Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and be answerable for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O people, NO prophet or apostle will come after me and NO new {or true} faith will be born {after me}.

Reason well, therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Qu’ran and my example, the Sunnah and if you follow these YOU WILL NEVER GO ASTRAY.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly.

Be my witness, O ALLAH, that I have conveyed YOUR message {in full*********} to YOUR people”.  (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi)}

                                  {*********Nothing can be added to this religion on the return of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) as prophetic instruction has ended. The collection of the Jiziah tax on non-Muslims will, however, be labeled defunct}.

ALLAH, through the centuries, has spoken to us through the Quran in a suitable manner as each of us has had various levels of understanding. In truth, most people do possess the abilities given by ALLAH to observe and ponder upon HIS WRITTEN WORD but do they use them?

Finally, ALLAH calls us to use our natural abilities to recognize and acknowledge HIS TOTAL SUPREMACY to WHOM we will return on JUDGMENT DAY.

If you were in doubt as to what WE have revealed unto you, then ask {ONLY} those {knowledgeable ones} who have been reading the Book from before you: the Truth has indeed come to you from your LORD: so be in no wise of those in doubt.    Q (10:94)

Now mysteries are mysteries and mysteries don’t get people into Paradise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, more often than not they get people going in the wrong direction IF THEY ARE NOT CAREFUL. To repeat again and again, ‘the doing is far better for man than the ‘just knowing’. For ALLAH has required compliance to HIS WILL and not made it mandatory to root out mysteries or acquire knowledge just for knowledge sake!**********

                     {**********For there must be a PURPOSE in formatting knowledge if it is to be useful and acceptable. It must be true and functional at the same time!}

If people can see these relationships as a type of service geared at helping others to the pathway of Practical Islam and not made up doctrines but fortifying that which came before and will enter again, then so be it!

(I (The Prophet {Muhammad}) have NOT left anything {of any major importance} that will bring you closer to Paradise and keep you further away from Hell but I have certainly taught {told} you about it.) Ibn kathir : Tafsir on Sura tul Khaf  18:17

O Messenger! proclaim the (message) which has been sent to you from your LORD. If you did not {do so in full}, you would not have fulfilled and proclaimed HIS MISSION. And ALLAH will defend you from men (who mean mischief). For ALLAH guides not those who reject Faith. Quran (5:67)

Say: “O people of the Book! exceed not in your religion the bounds (of what is proper) trespassing beyond the truth nor follow the VAIN DESIRES of people who went wrong in TIMES GONE BY who misled many and strayed (themselves) from the even way.                   Quran (5:77)

What is important to note in Islam is the proper orientation of the worshiper to the ONE WHO IS TO BE WORSHIPED!!! It goes back to the soul of adam in that the willingness to learn the precept ‘NOT BY MY WILL BUT BY YOUR WILL O ALLAHis tantamount to success in this world and in the Hereafter!!!

So, after the Ascension of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh), the world was being made ready for the TOTAL PACKAGE (the completion of the religion) to be sent down. This TOTAL PACKAGE was sent down in the form of an Arabic Quran and the many authentic sayings of Prophet Muhammad (pbh).

As to the completion of the religion as to WHAT IS THE MAIN AND MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS of actual, real faith as defined by the ONE GOD and not by man, we have been given all the knowledge that we need to succeed according to the truthful one (pbh)!!!!!!

All else is secondary or even of less importance and may even be a hindrance to TRUE AND ACTUAL BELIEF!

Say: “Nothing shall ever happen to us except what ALLAH has ordained for us. HE is our Mawla (PROTECTOR/GUIDE).” And in ALLAH let the believers put their trust.) – Quran (9:51)

It is true that Prophet Muhammad (pbh) NEVER SPECIFIED which specific car we should purchase or what career we should pursue – DIRECTLY! However, there are specific rituals or Islamic expressions that lead to those solutions such as certain types of Duas and the prayer of Istikharah.

“And (remember) the Day when WE shall raise up from every nation, a witness against them from amongst themselves. And WE shall bring you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these***********. And WE have sent down to you the Book (the Quran), as an exposition of EVERYTHING, a guidance, a mercy, and glad tidings for those who have submitted themselves (to ALLAH).” Quran (16:89)

                    {***********O you who believe! bow down and prostrate yourselves and worship your LORD, and do good that you may succeed.

And strive hard in (the way of) ALLAH, (such) a striving as is due to HIM; HE has chosen you and has not laid upon you any hardship in religion; the faith of your father, Ibrahim; HE named you Muslims before and in this, so that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and you {IN TURN} may be witnesses for the people; therefore, establish prayer and pay zakat and hold fast to ALLAH; HE is your Guardian; how Excellent the Guardian and how Excellent the Helper!      Quran (22:77-78).}


As to the expression concerning the Christ-soul or THE SON OF MAN:


For example, Jesus (pbh) and Joseph the son of Jacob (pbh) were two different individual ‘earthly bodies’. However, the soul ‘occupying’ those bodies, or vessels as it were, was one! The evidence of this is more than just a passing fancy.

For the Son of man also came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life {HIS LIFE-LONG PURSUIT IN FOLLOWING ALLAH’S PLAN} as a ransom for many.”  Mark (10:45)

Don’t think that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come NOT to abolish them but to fulfil them. Matthew (5:17)

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD {ALLAH} has laid on him iniquity of us all.{THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THAT SACRIFICE OF BEING THE SUFFERING SERVANT TO PLEASE ALLAH SUCH THAT HE BECAME THAT SIGN OR REPRESENTATIVE OF THOSE WHO CHOSE TO BELIEVE AND HENCE HE BECAME THE HEAD OF THE CORNERSTONE************ FOR THE BELIEVERS}.                                    Isaiah (53:6)

                                {************The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner.                                               Psalm of David (pbh) (118:22);

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures: ‘The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; this was the LORD’s {ALLAH’s} doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?}     Matthew (21:42)

A condition, completion or evolutionary job meaning in part that this soul, who was adam, Melchizedeck , Joseph son of Jacob, Ezekiel, Joshua bin Nun and finally Jesus the son of Mary became the statesman, warrior, interpreter of dreams, foreteller of future events, healer, miracle worker and among the highest level of prophets (RASUL-type of prophet) and was miraculously cleansed of sins (born without sin) has opened the door’ or ‘PAVED THAT WAY’ for Muhammad (pbh)!}

The important thing about this information is that man (any man)can strive in the Way of ALLAH and that man like the Christ-soul will be rewarded more than what they even put in! Such is the Grace and Mercy of ALLAH.

Also, it is evidence of the complete humanity of Jesus (pbh) while canceling out any notion that he is, was or will be any more than a man!

Other than a Comparative Religious tool showing the oneness and harmony of Islam (bowing down to ALLAH) throughout the AGES in the ONENESS of the RELIGION or PATHWAY given to man to follow, there is no big deal in the knowledge of the above.

The similitude of that is that knowledge is a boat built for the purpose of traveling across the sea and the actions or doings of man are things that propel this boat.

If the boat, being plain knowledge, remains on the shore, then what good is it when entered in a race to get to the other side (the happy final destination at Judgment Day)? The movement of the boat is important and the boat moves by the actions done in following that WAY shown by following the Prophet Muhammad (pbh).

Or to make a long story short: Actions (DEEDS) speak louder than words (plain knowledge)! And Prophet Muhammad (pbh) did not leave anything of real life-giving importance out from amongst his teachings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the other hand, some people like to invent things to support their very peculiar whims. Examples of such occur when the ‘mysterious’ Chapter 53 of Isaiah (pbh) is being read:

  1. 1. Some people take this suffering servant idea to be just about Jesus (pbh) which it is not BUT IT IS ABOUT THE CHRIST SOUL! Some people say that being buried with the rich as stated in Isaiah (pbh) is Jesus being buried with Joseph of Arimathea as he paid for the tomb. Fact, he wasn’t buried with Jesus (pbh).
  2. 2. The mystery man of Chapter 53 was ‘pierced’ for our transgressions is supposed to represent nail or lance piercing which happened on the cross. However, this ‘mysterious’ person was also ‘crushed’ or ‘bruised’ for us. Jesus (pbh) was not put under a heavy stone to be crushed. Therefore, the language used is metaphorical in nature but others play at word games to make things ‘fit’ their own agendas!:

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of MY people was he stricken.

And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise (crush) him; HE has put him to grief: when YOU shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, HE shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.     Isaiah (53:7-10)

  1. 3. This mystery soul was led like a sheep to the slaughter without opening his mouth. In the Gospel of John Chapter 18 Jesus (pbh) opens his mouth quite a lot in what may be called his own peculiar defense!

It was Joseph (pbh), the most honorable of souls according to Prophet Muhammad (pbh), on the other hand, who desired to get away from the ‘designing women’ who were so scandalous and disruptive that he would not even open his mouth to defend himself. This maneuver allowed him to get ‘peace’ and he stayed in prison for many years without a ‘peep’ of declaring himself innocent!


                                          {*************It is HE {ALLAH} WHO has sent HIS Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that he may proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans {non-believers} may detest (it).   Quran (61:9)}

These examples show two important things:

  1. 1. People are overreaching when it comes to trying to bend a straight line into something in order to make their own ‘pet’ theories look like facts!
  2. 2. A lack of respect for the Spirit of truth/Prophet Muhammad (pbh) and what he brought leaves them with ‘opaque glasses’ when searching the scriptures!!!!

We do know something of Jesus that does sound odd, however, when considering the prophets as a whole:

  1. 1. Jesus was born a prophet whereas others seem to have to reach a specific age before they are admitted into this circle of honor!
  2. 2. Prophet Muhammad (pbh) declared that the best of people were the prophets and that they indeed suffered much especially amongst their respective peoples. Jesus (pbh) by Quranic description was ‘protected’ from this suffering.
  3. 3. Many prophets worked long and hard amongst their individual peoples for many, many years. Jesus, on the other hand, spent a measly 3 years or a ‘drop in the bucket’ compared to many others!
  4. 4. Outwardly speaking, going on a cruise control mission for 3 short years and being anointed the ‘Excellent Position’ of Messiah seems like one who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth or a work less and gain more of an idea which, in truth, is out of congruity with what we know of the prophets.

Whatever the case may be, Islam is the complete and total religion chosen not by man but by THE CREATOR OF MANKIND. TO THE SOUL OF MAN, THAT SHOULD SAY IT ALL!!!
