What do the records tell us about the Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy? (See page 10).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So, as to who would end up being called the Messiah, Allah Alone Knows about that matter for sure but because the pathway for one soul being the Messiah was made before his creation, and in being made had to be fulfilled, the Messiah came about. Not through his desire (this Messiah) did he live and breathe but through Allah’s Permission embedded in HIS Plan through HIS Grace and Mercy.

To show this, Allah in a famous hadith declares that He created the sons of Adam and some will enter the Hell-Fire and that does not bother Him and some will enter the Paradise and that does not bother Him. For He declared in His Sacred Word, the Quran, that He knows what is in front of man and behind him as well as on all sides of man. He does know this because He is The One Who created the infinite pathways and knows well all that we do because all the infinite pathways are in His Hand and in His Control and such a task is easy for Him. So He announced in His Holy and Pure Word (the Quran) that He has given man chance upon chance to turn to Him and submit to His Will in repentance to receive His Grace and Mercy and to acknowledge Him as The Dominate and The Supreme.

But were He to show His Blessed COUNTENANCE – His REALITY to this lowly universe, the universe would disintegrate out of awe and humbleness to its Creator for such is He in His Lofty Station that man can only wonder and dream about but all their wonder and dreams fall immeasurably short of His REALITY.

Abu Musa reported, “The Messenger of Allah was standing amongst us and he told us five things … HIS Veil is the LIGHT. If HE withdraws it (the Veil), the SPLENDOR of HIS COUNTENANCE would consume HIS creation so far as HIS sight reaches.”   (Muslim)            And HIS SIGHT reaches to ALL things!

For did not His Special Envoy Prophet Muhammad (pbh) declare when asked if he saw Allah in his night journey to the various heavens that he declared in amazement ‘how could I see my LORD when He is hidden behind a Veil of Light’.

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Dharr, “I asked the Messenger of Allah, “Did you see your LORD?” He said, “HE is LIGHT; how could I see HIM.   (Muslim)

Mercy comes first followed by the growth of Grace and such was it in the beginning and so shall it be in the end. For Allah Himself declared it so when He stated that His Mercy outweighs His Wrath. Even so, He also stated in His Word that if He were to make His Judgment based on the life found on this planet that no human being would be left alive at all.

If it were His Will, He could destroy you O mankind and create another race; for He has Power to do this.   Q (4: 133)

Abu Huraira told that he heard Allah’s Messenger (pbh) say that Allah Most High had inscribed a document before bringing the creation into being, “My Mercy has preceded My Anger,” and that it is written in His Presence above the Throne.   (Bukhari and Muslim)

Allah (SWT) created Muhammad’s soul (pbh) in ‘celestial splendor’ and told him to be patient on His Will.  Adam (pbh), our blessed father, saw Muhammad’s (pbh) blessed name and wondered with awe about him as to who he was. And as the Prophet had said concerning himself that he was appointed for what he was appointed for when Adam (pbh) was prone in his basic substance.

Al-‘Irbad b. Sariya reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “I was inscribed in Allah’s presence as the seal of the prophets when Adam was prone in his basic substance. I shall inform you about the beginning of my career: it was the petition of Abraham, the Good Tidings (Good News) by Jesus, and the vision my mother saw when she gave birth to me and a light issued to her from which the castles of Syria shone for her.”      (It is transmitted in Sharh as-sunna, and Ahmed transmitted it on authority of Abu Umama from “I shall inform you… to the end.)

Mercy and Grace go together as can be seen from the Book of Isaiah (pbh) in mentioning the man on the donkey (the Messiah) talking with the man on the camel (Muhammad). And in a very deep saying from Muhammad (pbh) himself, he declares that there is no prophet between him and Jesus (peace be upon them both). This can be taken even unto the grave and their raising up together as has been reported in Islamic literature.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “I am the nearest of kin to Jesus the son of Mary in this world and the next. The prophets are brothers, sons of one father by co-wives. Their mothers are different, but their religion is one. There has been no prophet between us {Jesus and myself}.”    (Bukhari and Muslim)

Adam (pbh) was a blessed soul and he was given great powers and dignity. He was a wise, a strong, a kind, a merciful, a graceful, a savior, and an ever living, etc. The promise was given to him such that he would never taste death only IF he was to be obedient to his Creator and Allah is He Who Always Keeps His Promises. But Adam (pbh) disobeyed his LORD and on him was put the way that all men now had to face and that was death. Death for each of us not because of his sin but because we are of him and follow the pattern set within the Plan set forth by Allah.

Anas reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “When Allah fashioned Adam in Paradise, He left him as long as He wished to leave him; then Satan began to visit him and consider what kind of being he was, and when he saw that he had a hollow space within, he recognized that he had been created as a being not possessed of self control.   (Muslim)

Man chose hastily and with impunity to take on the role of being ‘lords’ (vicegerents) of creation and therefore must show that he is worthy to the task for we are from Adam (pbh) even as the Prophet (pbh) declared concerning the hollowness found in Adam’s back. So like follows like. That is, what is human follows human in pattern and shape.

The worldly will not know him as Jesus declared of Muhammad (pbh) and will refuse the ‘Good News’ (not the Gospels) sent to all of mankind. As Muhammad (pbh) declared:

Al-‘Irbad b. Sariya reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “I was inscribed in Allah’s presence as the seal of the prophets when Adam was prone in his basic substance. I shall inform you about the beginning of my career: it was the petition of Abraham, the Good Tidings (Good News) by Jesus, and the vision my mother saw when she gave birth to me and a light issued to her from which the castles of Syria shone for her.”      (It is transmitted in Sharh as-sunna, and Ahmed transmitted it on authority of Abu Umama from “I shall inform you… to the end.)

As Allah declares in His Word, angels would be sent to angels if that were their dwelling-place on earth and if they were given the chance to have free will but they are not.

Say, “If there were settled on Earth angels walking about in peace and quiet, We should certainly have sent them down from the heavens an angel for a messenger.”   Q (17: 95)

However, it is man that took up the challenge and therefore only men as prophets came to mankind. Out of these men or sea of souls came one soul whose destiny would be important to the world. It would be so important that the pattern of behavior would be set in him as a test and as an example (Sign). Even the Prophet (pbh) himself acknowledged this by way of saying that he will do as his ‘brother’ (fellow prophet) had done before him thus acknowledging his station as set upon that soul by Allah.

But there is no quick fix in life and no haste with Allah! Thus, that soul in some forgotten time and some forgotten place (known only by Allah) lifted up his heart to his Creator and pleaded with all fear, dread and earnest desire in hope and mercy that Allah would not destroy him (that he would not die)*.

Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto HIM that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared.   Heb (5: 7)

Although he did not fear death, for he knew that all life must die, he feared that his soul would be cast out from the LIGHT and be turned into a wretched thing.

And as he followed the path of his father Adam (pbh) who did the same in that he feared because of his disobedience and who learned by measured degrees to be faithful to his LORD, so also did this soul learn to grow in wisdom, strength, beauty and obedience to his LORD.

Who needs not daily, as those high priests, to offer up a sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.   Heb. (7: 27)

So it is written in Allah’s Perfect and Pure Word (the Quran) Jesus is like Adam.

The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, and then said to him ‘Be’ and he was.     Q (3: 59)

And because he found forgiveness by Allah in that he feared and because it was Allah’s Plan that this soul was admonished and he accepted his admonishment with all true faith, trust and humility, he grew in strength and purpose accepting to take on a charge that was too great for him to bear but was made bearable by Allah’s Will in that He guided and guarded this soul against destruction. Because Allah (SWT) made Promises that whosoever turned to Him would find His Grace and Mercy present.

Allah in His Mercy and Grace keeps His Promises and if one turns to Him in earnest faith as this soul did, then the rewards keep on multiplying immensely for His Plan would not be defeated by the rebel forces who sought selfishly to overthrow His Will. As Allah says in His Holy Word “It is I and my prophets who will win out.”

Allah has decreed, “It is I and My Messengers who must prevail” for Allah is THE STRONG, THE MIGHTY.   Q (58: 21)

And as Isaiah (pbh) has given in wondrous speech found in Isaiah (57: 8), this soul, by the Mercy and Grace of Allah Alone, persevered even though his prison (both physical and spiritual) was almost too much to bear and was too much to bear but Allah made the unbearable, bearable and such a thing was easy for HIM to accomplish.

He was taken from prison and from judgment {to be born sinless and pure – well protected by Allah and pleasing in HIS EYES}: and who shall declare his generation? For he was cutoff out of the land of the living; for the transgression of MY PEOPLE {the true servants of Allah in any age} was he stricken {that he be made worthy to inherit a kingdom right blessed}.     Isaiah (57: 8)

Therefore, when Allah (SWT) gives aid and comfort and endurance, none can take it away and so his soul prospered and he became what Allah (SWT) had Planned for him to become.

Though humbled by his experiences, he remained steadfast in the job that was given unto him so that in his own right and sanctified by the LORD, he became the spokesperson for that kingdom to come to deliver souls up to his brother (Muhammad) in the Kingdom in the Heavens. And Who fashioned this Plan but the ONE WHO is DOMINATE and SUPREME!

HE (Allah) cannot be questioned for HIS ACTS, but they will be questioned (for theirs).       Q (21: 23)

Not only was it announced that this great soul would receive double the reward for his labors, Isaiah (53: 12), but that he would be given a kingdom of immense importance. He became the focal point (Sign) of the Sign of Grace to mankind for showing by his struggles and faith the immense Mercy and Grace that his LORD, the LORD of all, would bestow on the human race of those (the believers) who proved faithful in their trust and worship of The ONE GOD through the obedience to HIM through the office of prophethood that HE had set up.

Allah gave to mankind another soul whose foundation is based on an exalted standard of character and who was looked for throughout the various ages of man. As he was mentioned first (such that the father of the human race, Adam became aware of him) he also becomes last in that he is known as the seal of the prophets for there shall be no more prophets or Divine Revelation after him.

And surely you (Muhammad) have sublime morals (an exalted standard of character).        Q (68: 4)

Even this man whose soul was placed in ‘celestial splendor’ and given leadership over the brotherhood of prophets in the Divine Purpose and who knew not what was Revelation beforehand, even he was given the treasures of the Earth (the varied races of faithful men) to collect in Allah’s Name on the Last Day of Judgment. And Allah (SWT) declared this in His Holy and Pure Word, the Quran, about the brotherhood of prophets and took from them an oath that they should help and support him (Muhammad – pbh).

And thus have We, by Our Command, sent Inspiration to you: you did not know (before) what was Revelation, and what was Faith; but We have made the (Quran) a Light, wherewith We guide such as of Our servants as We Will; and verily you do guide (men) to the STRAIGHT WAY.   Q (42: 52)

Behold! Allah took the Covenant of all the prophets. Saying, “I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a Messenger, confirming what is with you; do you believe in him and render him help?” Allah said, “Do you agree and take this My Covenant as binding on you?” They said, “We agree.” HE said, “Then bear witness and I am with you among the witnesses.”    Q (3: 81)

And those lofty souls of the varied prophets (124,000 in number) raised not an eyebrow in complaint for they all took joy in submitting to Allah’s Will in strict obedience to rejoice in His Good Pleasure. These prophets did understand that their LORD cannot be questioned about His Plan or Actions but that all life will be questioned about what they did. And even this extends to the horned ram versus the one who has lost its horn on that Day of Accountability.

HE cannot be questioned for HIS ACTS, but they will be questioned (for theirs).   Q (21: 23)

So Allah will show His Mercy through this exalted soul on the Day that counts and as His Holy Word proclaims, Muhammad (pbh) is a mercy for all creatures.

We sent you not {Muhammad}, but as a mercy for all creatures.   Q (21: 107)

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

So this soul entered the Earth plane of existence and such a sterling character became evident from all who saw him. He embodied the brotherhood of prophets so much that he (pbh) shared their sacrifice in being humble and staunchly obedient to his LORD.

He was hated and abused by his own people but he did not doubt. He was thrown out of his area by his own people but came back in the fullness of honor. He was even attacked by some unseen evil forces but he did not waver. Magic was practiced against him but he came through. Attempts on his life were plotted but these plots proved fruitless. And like so many of the faithful prophets before him who were attacked by the estranged and lawless Jews, he finally succumbed to being murdered from the poison given to him by a Jewess.

So he sums up in one life all that had gone before of the experiences the prophets had encountered and even in building a society from but a handful of men and women numbering after so many years but a few. Such mirrors the few (the brotherhood of prophets) who are numbered amongst the great but who struggled for the sake of Allah’s Blessings and His Purpose by His Plan to bring in the many against all odds. That is to say, that the total number of prophets versus the total number of people is such a small number as compared to a very great and vast number of human souls.

So Allah’s Mercy and Grace were shown through His servants the prophets and the most eminent ones became the epitome of His Mercy and Grace shown to the world such that the Messiah (pbh) and Muhammad (pbh) became that manifestation or personification of Allah’s Plan for His Grace and Mercy to mankind. Allah’s Pure Grace and Mercy are too much for the universe to contain and by agreement this galaxy of ours, called the Milky Way, is but a speck among specks in the sky.

So if one can get a small understanding of what is called the footstool of Allah or called the ‘Arsh then one can sense that His IMMENSENESS is beyond knowledge. The ‘Arsh has been likened by Prophet Muhammad (pbh) to a ring-like thing (the physical universe – for all of its splendor and glory) thrown out upon the open space of the desert.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As I mentioned in my first book, The Shining Light of Islam, there are trees and houses in the Heavens and there are trees and houses on Earth but the earthly life only mimics that which is in the Heavens. So also there must be a time-frame on Earth such that this joyful kingdom under the leadership of Jesus (pbh) is washed clean.

The Prophet did say that there will come a time when men are changed like unto metamorphosis likened unto them being like animals such that the kingdom given to Jesus (pbh) will be weeded out from these miscreants and falsehood would vanish (be snatched away).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Man enters that kingdom by ranks, the best being first, those raised up for that purpose, followed by others rank upon rank until the time that Allah has set for that kingdom to close as mentioned by the Prophet (pbh) as to the breeze that Allah will send. Then comes another kingdom of wickedness but as I have discussed that in some of my books there is no need to belabor the point of that filth here.

And out of these two kingdoms shall mankind be raised up to Judgment from what the Prophet (pbh) had said they would be raised up from, bringing forth their deeds that will bear witness for them or against them. As Allah has declared in His Holy Word that in effect it is man’s deeds as to what their own hands have sent before them that will weigh heavy on the Scale of Justice. And mankind will be raised to the Heavens to dwell therein, as their final resting place, either in great joy or great torment after the Judgment is given.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “Between the two blasts there are forty (and when Abu Huraira was asked if the forty referred to days, he refused to say); when asked if it referred to forty months he refused to say; and when asked if it referred to forty years he refuse to say). Allah will then send water down from the sky and they (mankind) will sprout like vegetables. The only thing in a man which does not decay is one bone, the tail-bone, from which the whole frame will be reconstituted on the day of Resurrection.”   (Bukhari and Muslim) In a version by Muslim he said, “Every son of Adam will be devoured by the earth with the exception of the tail-bone from which he was created and from which he will be reconstituted.”

And the master (pbh) did say about the entrance into this kingdom of blessedness that a man must be born again of water and the spirit to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven such that from Allah’s Glorious Word as shown above, man will be given his rank such that he can carry that in his record on the Last Day.

Jesus answered Verily, verily; I say to you, except a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto you, you must be born again.        John (3: 5-7)

Those exempt from being born into this kingdom are those ten who were promised Paradise; the martyrs (true ones) and any whom the Creator Lord has chosen for He Alone is the One Who is in Control and Knows All things.

And the children in this kingdom on Earth in that special era – time-frame – known only by Allah will be born with the intuitive sense of being likened as scholars speaking Arabic. That is that they will have within their beings the ability to understand the essence of religion and will not need teachers to form their minds or their language. Besides this, the verses mentioned before in the Epistle to the Hebrews (8: 10-12) is clear enough.

So in response to the rejected ones or those who are branded by Allah as unbelievers one can take a saying of Muhammad (pbh) as when one person came to him and was taken aback by the Prophet (pbh) saying that the unbelievers would be forced to walk to Judgment on their faces. That man replied as to saying how that was possible but the Prophet (pbh) reminded him that the Creator of the Universe (Allah) {in all of the universe’s apparent and wondrous complexity – such an easy thing for Him to do} would not find it difficult in the least to have men walk on their faces.

Anas told that when a man asked, “Prophet of Allah, how will the unbeliever be brought to the assembly on his face on the Day of Resurrection? He replied, “Is He Who caused him to walk on his feet in the world not able to make him walk on his face on the Day of Resurrection?”    (Bukhari and Muslim)

So how then can it be difficult for Allah (SWT) to cause men to behave in such an upright manner with inborn knowledge in the blessed Earthly kingdom under the leadership of the blessed Messiah? Such a thing is easy for Him to accomplish though most men are in doubt. And further proof is what we have because the Holy Records are indeed One!

And He shall send Jesus Christ which before was preached unto you:

Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Allah has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.


AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT EVERY SOUL, WHICH WILL NOT HEAR THAT PROPHET {Prophet Muhammad – following after his ways in the Blessed kingdom led by the Messiah on his return}, SHALL BE DESTROYED FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE.                               Acts (3: 20-23)

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

And this Prophet (pbh) came and established by Allah’s Will the completion of the Faith and this is the Faith (Islam) and the Quran is the Pure Book with no crookedness therein and Muhammad’s Sunnah is the Way that shall be followed and enforced in this blessed kingdom on Earth given to the Messiah (pbh).

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

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

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

Truth is not as fragmented as many have made it out to be. The above verse in the Quran is specifically about the Treaty of Hudaibiya but it also is about the life of the believers who put their trust in Allah including Jesus the Son of Mary (pbh) and those who are with him on his return to follow THAT WAY as brought by Muhammad (pbh) as it was from the beginning. How is that so?

The believers in any age (and from the beginning when the sons of Adam swore an oath of obedience to their LORD) are those who followed the teachings of their own prophets in good faith and obedience. The brotherhood of prophets is one community of the faithful put in charge of their respective flocks by Allah such that they discharged the truth or Way to follow leading to Salvation. And this pathway is overseen by THE ONE GOD WHO made those prophets swear fealty to their human counterpart who is Muhammad (pbh).

Behold! Allah took the Covenant of all the prophets. Saying, “I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a Messenger, confirming what is with you; do you believe in him and render him help?” Allah said, “Do you agree and take this My Covenant as binding on you?” They said, “We agree.” HE said, “Then bear witness and I am with you among the witnesses.”    Q (3: 81)

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

So men can ponder about the Quran – the Pure and wholly complete Word of Allah and know that none could produce a BOOK LIKE THIS except ONE and that ONE is ALLAH. So ALL PRAISE, HONOR AND GLORY ARE FOR HIM BY WHOM THERE ARE NO OTHERS!

However, with that said it should always be remembered that as high as Muhammad’s (pbh) station is, he is only a human being and a servant of THE MOST HIGH. And in being such along with his brother Jesus the Son of Mary (pbh), they had to remain faithful to their CREATOR LORD or else they as well as their efforts would be rejected.

So it is fruitless, for example to pray to them or have any images or statues made of them as in thinking that they (what an ugly and despicable thought) would bring luck.

O men! Here is a parable set forth! Listen to it! Those on whom, besides Allah, you call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all get together for the purpose! And if the fly should snatch away anything from them {by Allah’s Will}, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition!   Q (22: 73)

Nor would he instruct you to take angels and prophets for Lords and Patrons. What! Would he bid you to unbelief after you have bowed your will (to Allah in Islam)?                   Q (3: 80)

As to Ezekiel (pbh) in his dark book, he mentioned the return of souls to Him Who Possesses all souls and that is Allah. That those souls marked off by Him would not fail but would be gathered as coming back to The Way, called in that text Israel honoring prophet Jacob (pbh) and called in the New Testament, the Way and called in Arabic, ISLAM.

Even those two men – the one who wanted to persecute the followers of Jesus (pbh), Saul (Paul) and the one who wanted to kill Muhammad (pbh) – U’mar but who had his life turned completely around to become a blessed and well-loved Companion – were turned around by THE ONE WHO IS THE TURNER OF THE HEARTS – ALLAH.

* Many might think that Jesus (pbh) in a supposed moment of weakness would turn his back on his Creator Lord by denying the promises received from his LORD and became afraid of death by the hands of the Jews. This idea was in part debunked in my book, The Non-Crucifixion of Jesus. This would make him out to be worse than a renegade and contemptible person. How so?

Jesus (pbh) as Allah’s Pure Word declares was full of wisdom in the teachings from his LORD. Besides this, he was given knowledge of all things to happen to him in those days and the days after, such that he even knew about where and when he should appear to his special disciples.

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

Truly, the man who was destined by his LORD to overcome the world would not be caught out like a rat in a trap. Rather those who the scriptures have declared to be ‘devious and deluded’ were themselves washed in their own filth of deviousness and delusions.

As to some Christians still trying to hang on to straws concerning their religious beliefs by going back to what they might consider their somewhat off-colored original scriptures and the earliest of men reporting the same, it should be noted that in that way there lies some good and also some bad.

It is better to give up the ghost and recognize the truth found in Islam. To make a point, when one considers that Polycarp and Irenaeus to be a bedrock of heroes of what the foundations of modern Christianity can build upon, it causes one to ponder about their ‘facts’. Certainly, they did as best as they could without knowing the depth of true history and facing many decades of dark periods where truth was covered up and polluted by the same miscreants that the original disciples warned about.

To make a long point short, one should know that these men of ‘learned renown’ believed that Jesus (pbh) may have stayed on the Earth until he was almost 50 years old and attributed this (fact?) to the blessed disciples!!! If these men cannot find their way through a tangled mass of jungle, how is it possible to rely on such early sources for direction and guidance? Worse still, how is it possible for anyone to rely on those who came after them – these stalwarts of Christian fame?

Soon WE will show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth) and in their own souls, until it becomes manifestly clear to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that your LORD does witness all things?   Q (41: 53)
