To Abdulkarim Awaje Akuki,
All praise be unto Allah the Lord of all that exists. I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except ALLAH and prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is his messenger. Whoever Allah guides cannot be led astray and whoever Allah leads astray cannot be guided and Allah does not change the condition of a people except they change what is in their hearts and He misguides not except the defiantly disobedient.
I am delighted seeing posts from our brother Abdulkarim questioning his faith, Christianity. This is indeed a good start. These questions you have been asking, I asked them about 4-5 years ago and I got no answer hence being in a state of confusion. My confusion was a result of lies and irrational teachings not appealing to me yet I needed salvation, many people are still in that confused state today. Now, imagine dying in such a confused state. I pray this will not be your portion and I hope Allah guides you back home.
The Christians must have started calling you a Muslim, claim it. They should have started calling you an anti-christ, it is not surprising, that is their sadistic game. I will quickly go into the subject matter so as not to make this article boring.
I am using this opportunity to invite you into Islam. If you are sincere and brave enough to question Christianity, studying Islam with a sincere heart should not be an ado. Prophet Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (pbut) are three men on the same mission, Monotheism. While Moses said God is one in Deuteronomy 6:4, Jesus and Muhammad did same in Mark 12:29 and Qur’an 112:1 respectively.
By now, you should study Islam and see that criticisms against Islam and the Qur’an are false. Nowhere does the Qur’an ask Muslims to kill innocent people. We have over 1 billion Muslims, imagine if we have 1 billion terrorists in the world!!! Is it not preposterous to think, assume, imagine or believe that people who do not make up to 2% of the Muslim population understand Islam than the over 98%?
Unlike the Bible with different numbers of books in them, errors, discrepancies, anachronisms and contradictions, the Qur’an remains the only book on earth that has remained in its pure pristine purity for over a millennium, untampered with, unchanged and void of error.
Do you not love how the Muslims Worship in one congregation in one language and one mode of worship, bowing down like Moses, Abraham and other prophets did? Check Nehemiah 4:8-6, indeed the way people worshiped there is not Christian like but like Muslims. In Matthew 4:8-10, Satan asked Jesus to bow down and worship him with Jesus rebuking him. Jesus Christ didn’t ask his disciples to clap, sing and dance to worship. What Christians fail to realize is there’s a difference between praise and worship, the latter lacking in Christianity. Today, in church, Worship is slow while praise is fast, who gave such order in the Bible. It is time to come to Islam and worship God how He should be worshipped.
I know by now, you should start asking who was the prophet not mentioned by name in John 1:19-21. The Christians will tell you it is Jesus but John already denied he is not Jesus being asked earlier. I am telling you that Christians can never answer who is that prophet. We then start to question the power of ‘holy spirit’ because it teaches them to answer us with lies. If they won’t agree it is prophet Muhammad, we should ask, why was Elijah and Jesus mentioned by name in that verse and not the last prophet.
Do you know that the Qur’an says all messengers of God were sent to their respective nations but only Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was sent as a mercy to mankind. The Qur’an did not downgrade the prophets, in fact, the Bible confirmed it. In Matthew 15:24, Jesus said he was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel while in Mathew 10:5-6,he asked his disciples not to go to the house of the Gentiles or Samaritans but to the house of the lost sheep of Israel. Even, he said those who will rule with him are from the twelve tribes if Israel. Now, someone who claimed to have been sent to the Israelites alone, how can he die for the sins of humanity? Does Ezekiel 18:20 and Deuteronomy 24:16 not say the father shall not die for the sins of the son and vice versa?
By now, that we Muslims call ourselves slaves of God should not be a thing of disgust or detest, rather you should be proud to call yourself one as it would gladden you to know the reward for slaves of God, we read,
“Romans 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.”
Eternal life, that is the reward. We Muslims believe in Jesus but as a servant, slave and messenger of God. Does Mathew 12:18 not confirm this? Even John 17:3. A Muslim is one who submits to the will of God and do you know in John 5:30, Jesus said he can of his own do nothing? He furthered, “I have not come to do my will but the will of God that sent me”
Death is sure and we keep getting closer to the grave, see these Qur’an verses,
On the Day a man will flee from his brother, And his mother and his father, And his wife and his children, each one of them, that Day, will have enough concern (of his own) to make him indifferent to the others
Allah also says, Surah Al-Fajr, Verse 23:
And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?
Surah An-Naba, Verse 40:
Verily, We have warned you of a Penalty near, the Day when man will see (the deeds) which his hands have sent forth, and the Unbeliever will say, “Woe unto me! Would that I were dust!”
I’ll stop it here. Between confusion and salvation, the choice is yours. I will get to you a copy of my book,” Truth for the truth seekers “and if Allah wills, we see one on one soon.
Come into Islam. Our efforts on you is not self interest motivated. We don’t have churches where you will pay tithe to. This is about you, not about us. A soul that doesn’t make Jannah, it could have been better it if were mere dust.
And bear witness, you received admonition.
For now, peace.
