Of Religion, Tolerance, Bigotry and Double Standards By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman

In the last article I wrote, I stated that I might write again this December if something important comes up. As much as I wanted to keep to my not writing till January, I think nothing could be more important to write about than the hypocrisy, bigotry and double standards of Christians as regards the…

Click here for previous session       A brief summary, then, of these key points: 1.  Jesus differentiated between himself and God. On one hand he exalted God, but on the other hand he humbled himself before his Creator in worship. To his followers, Jesus defined himself as nothing more than a man and a prophet. 2.  The disciples agreed, and acknowledged Jesus Christ as a man and a prophet. 3.  The only New Testament verse (1 Timothy 3:16) held to support the doctrine of Incarnation is corrupt—even more, if it can be imagined, than the widely discredited John 1:14 and Colossians 2:9. 4.  The Bible describes the life and history of Jesus in terms which can only be associated with humanity. 5. …

  Click here for previous session     Matters of Creed 1.  Jesus taught the oneness of God (Mark 12:29­30, Matthew 22:37 and Luke 10:27), as conveyed in the first commandment (Exodus 20:3). 2.  Jesus declared himself a man and a prophet of God (see above), and nowhere claimed divinity or divine sonship. Which creed are the above two points more consistent with—the Trinitarian formula or the absolute monotheism of Islam? Practical considerations arise. Questions like, “What was Jesus’ religion?” and “If Jesus lived, preached, and completed his ministry faithful to the religious laws of his time, why are those who claim to follow in his name not living by his example?” After all, the Acts of the Apostles documents how strict the practices were among the early followers of Christ. Peter’s avoidance of unclean animals is documented in Acts 10:14, the emphasis upon circumcision is…

PROHIBITION OF THE USE OF HIJAB/VEIL IN SOME PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS: WHAT IS THE POSITION OF THE LAW?

One of the challenges Muslim females are facing is the wearing of hijab. Hijab is a veil they use in covering their body. These challenges are found even in public institutions. The proscription of the use of veils is normally done through rules made in those institutions. For example there has been complaint that hijab…

Click here for previous session     Practices of Worship 1.  Jesus purified himself with washing prior to prayer, as was the practice of the pious prophets who preceded him (see Exodus 40:31­32 in reference to Moses and Aaron), and as is the practice of Muslims. 2.  Jesus prayed in prostration (Matthew 26:39), like the other prophets (see Nehemiah 8:6 with regard to Ezra and the people, Joshua 5:14 for Joshua, Genesis 17:3 and 24:52 for Abraham, Exodus 34:8 and Numbers 20:6 for Moses and Aaron). Who prays like that, Christians or Muslims? 3.  Jesus fasted for more than a month at a time (Matthew 4:2 and Luke…

Just Saying By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman

AlhamduliLlah!!! Earlier, I promised to write on, “Jerusalam, we are brothers”.

Meanwhile, I will make a summary of what I should write…

Celebrating With Non-Muslims

CELEBRATING WITH NON-MUSLIMS When the holy Prophet made it to Madeenah on the divine order of his Lord, he met the natives therein with a plethora of festivities. Rather than join in the commemoration, he called them to the heavenly sanctioned ones – Eidul Fitr and Adha – as replacements. The Prophet was never commanded…
