This interview took place year 2015 before my younger brother embraced Islam
Q: Bro Bashir…..
Kindly tell us your former name when u were still in Christianity
Q: What’s now your Muslim name?!
A: Muhammad Bashir
Q: Where did the Lucas come from then?
A: Lucas is a another form of Lukas, Luke.. A gospel writer.
Q: What led you back to Islam ,the natural religion ?
A: I have written a book on this but I will explain briefly.
I have been reading the bible since I was 14..before I clocked 18,i have read the KJV Bible FOUR times cover to cover.
When you read the bible, so many questions would be raised and you will see that Jesus of the Bible is different from
Jesus of the church
The Bible says God said in Isaiah 43 :10-11 that, “Before me, no God was formed, after me, no God will be formed, I AM THE LORD AND THERE IS NO SAVIOUR EXCEPT ME”..
One may ask, on whose authority are Christians calling Jesus their Lord and personal saviour?
The Christians say God is truine in nature. However, Jesus said in Mark 12 :29, “Hear o Israel, the Lord our God is one” La ilaha illa Allah
Moses also said in Deuteronomy 6 :4, “Here o Israel, the Lord our God is one” The Islamic mode of prayer is clearly demonstrated in Nehemiah 8 :4-6.
It is a permanent sign of my covenant with the people of Israel. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day he stopped working and was refreshed.'”
Can God refresh?? The Bible says God rested.
Now, read Qur’an 50:38
And We did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days, and there touched Us no
I kept studying. Alhamdulillah, I encountered some Muslim brothers on Facebook some years back. They seemed to know the Bible than I do
That prompted me to start studying more on major world religions and I finally embraced Islam after being convinced. No salvation except in Islam.. Quran 3 :85, Quran 3 :102, Quran 3 :19
The protestant Bible has 66 books
61 books Syrianic version
81 books orthodox Bible
83 books in the ETHIOPIC VERSION
Q: What year did u came back to Islam ?
Q: Allahu Akbar. And how was the reaction of your parents and Christian neighbors when you accepted Islam ?
A: They didn’t welcome it. But I asked the question Umar asked his servant when he wants to take food to a woman
and the servant wanted to hell him
“will you bear my load on judgement day? “
Q: Allahu Akbar…..
Answer continues : I will surely be responsible for my actions. What do we stand to gain? Cars, houses, children? Is that success?
During the call to prayer, we say “come to true success”. Success is when one is counted among the righteous in the day of recompense. And who is the unfortunate except the one who dies not as a Muslim
Some of my worldly benefits were cut off, who cares?
The things of this dunya have little or no value to one whose heart is fixed in the Hereafter.
Q: Are they still Christians…. I mean your parents ?
A: Dad died before I reverted
Yes, still Christians.
Q: How many Christians have you being able to convinced back to the path of Al Islam ?
A: [ Alhamdulillah, I’ve personally welcomed over 35 Christians to Islam since including a man with his family. No member of my family has listened. Only Allah guides to the straight path.
That reminds me of the Prophet’s uncle who died as an unbeliever… SubhanAllah. 35 isn’t actual figure, I’ve avoided exaggeration. Astagafirrlah.
Q: We heard that u visited a woman who gave birth to a bible …how true is this story ?
A: Yes, Very very true.In Ila orangun.
Q: But I heard the story was actually fabricated in order to lure some people into Christianity.
A: Exactly. Bible that was printed in China. Year of production, 2012. Bible Society of Nigeria. 48,Wharf Road, Apapa Lagos, NIGERIA
Written in yoruba Fortunately, in Matthew 26:39 of that Bible, Jesus was said to have bowed in worship.
Q: What method have you been using to convince the people you reverted?
A: First and foremost, one should realise only God can guide one. We can only say else you will talk talk talk, yet someone won’t agree, you may end up crying. But when you know Allah is the guider, you say Allah knows best.
Christians don’t believe in the Quran. So the best thing is using what they believe in, the Bible. When the Bible is proved to be of doubtful authorship, full of contradictions, anachronisms, discrepancies and absurdities.. That’s a primary factor.
We then ask them to compare the Bible with the Quran which has remained in its pure pristine purity over a Millennium ago. Then, next step is monotheism. What does the Bible say? Trinity or monotheism?
One should just note that, one can try, one can’t guide, only Allah does. Nowhere in the Bible did Jesus claimed to be God.
A God that eats?
God that was “supposedly” crucified?
God that hungers??
SubanAllah. Jesus said in John 17:3, This is Eternal life, that you may know the only TRUE GOD and Jesus Christ whom he has sent “. Jesus is not the only Son of God according to the Bible..
In Jeremiah 31 :9, Ephraim was said to be the firstborn of
God. How then is Jesus the only begotten son of God?
We read about other sons of God on Job 1:6..This is metaphorical..
Lam yalid wa lam yoolAD
So many things.. I’ll just stop it there. Other questions?
Q: Brother, what can you say about some people that say Jesus came to them and preached Christianity to them, so that’s there reason of converting in Christianity?
A: Pure lies.. Why can’t they ask Jesus to reduce the price of garri in the market? None of them can say this is exactly how Jesus looks like.
Q: Lastly , what advise will u give to some of us who habitually find excuse when it comes to obeying Allah’s law?
A: My dear brothers and sisters in Islam…
Indeed, Every soul shall taste death. A Muslim is one who submits to the will of ALLAH. Are you listening to Allah’s will or following the will of that evil whisperer.
We should remember the day we shall account for our deeds.
In the call to prayer, we say, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar… Is he truly the greatest in your life?
Is that your selfish desire greater than Allah’s will?
The day of certainty draws nigh likewise the day of Judgement… Fear Allah that you may be successful in the Hereafter..
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest
————————————————– May Allah grant bro Muhammad basheer more wisdom and understanding of Islam….
