Saul Aka Paul-The False Prophet and Self Made Apostle

 

Paul The Fake Apostle

Paul The Fake Apostle

It is a common misconception amongst the Christians that Paul and Jesus’ Disciples were unanimous in their preaching of a crucified Jesus. Christians believe that Paul and the Disciples were preaching the same doctrine and everyone believed in the divine Jesus who came to be crucified for the sins of the world. However, if one carefully examines the bible, that person would see that Paul and the disciples were not preaching the same doctrine and did not believe in the same Jesus (pbuh).

The Apostles in Jerusalem heard that Paul has been preaching a different doctrine in Corinthia and Galatia. Paul was telling them not to follow the law anymore and that they don’t have to eat kosher meat anymore or to be circumcised (according to Genesis 17::14, the covenant is broken if there is no circumcision) etc. So the Apostles went to Galatia and Corinthia and convinced everyone that Paul is wrong, when Paul heard about this he went straight back to the cities.

“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel”. [Galatians 1:6]

It says different Gospel, so obviously the disciples were teaching them a different doctrine and it was not just minor issues.

The Disciples of Jesus (pbuh) remembered Paul’s persecutions towards the followers (early Christians) of Jesus. They were very suspicious of Paul. So when he finally came to them (41 B.C.E.) they didn’t believe his lie. They looked at him as a spy.

“And when Saul had come to Jerusalem he tried to Join himself with the Disciples but they were all afraid of him. And did not believe that he was a Disciple.” [Acts 9:26]. As you can see the Disciples didn’t trust him.

PAUL IN THE BIBLE ADMITS HE’S A LIAR AND A DECEIVER:

Paul said, “But be it so, I did not burden you nevertheless, being crafty, I CAUGHT YOU WITH GUILE.” [2 CORINTHIANS 12:16]

Definition of GUILE: means ruse, sharp practice, treachery, trickery and wiliness.)

“For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?” [Romans 3:7]

WHAT JESUS IN THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE LIAR:

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” [John. 8:44-45]

WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT THE PHARISEES:

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” [Matthew 23:15]

PAUL ADMITS HE’S A PHARISEE:

“But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.” [Acts 23:6]

WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT PREACHING TO THE GENTILES:

“Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.” [Matthew 10:5-6]

“But he Jesus answered and said, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” [Matthew 15:24]

BUT PAUL SAYS DIFFERENT…WHO GAVE HIM AUTHORITY TO DO THIS?

Paul rejected this command of NOT preaching to the Gentiles, they were restricted. Paul openly preached among the Gentiles, a totally different religion, but then again paul wasn’t one of Jesus’ disciples anyways. The one who was to come for the Gentiles is mentioned in Isaiah 42. Who clearly is an Arab according to the description of his ancestor, “Kedar” and not a Jew Pharisee like Paul who then attempts to deceive many by assuming the role of the respected prophet to come as prophesied.

Paul said,”For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:” [Romans 11:13]

PAUL’S OWN CONTRADICTIONS:

WHEN PAUL WAS ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS HE SAW A LIGHT AND HEARD A VOICE. DID THOSE WHO WERE WITH HIM HEAR THE VOICE?

Yes- “And the men which journeyed with me stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.” [Acts 9:7]

No – “And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me.” [Acts 22:9]

CONCERNING THE LAW…GOD & JESUS AGAINST PAUL THE LIAR:

THIS IS WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT HIS LAW:

“Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you”. [Deuteronomy 4:2]

“The laws of God have to be considered and committed to memory for life. They have to be practiced, practiced, practiced. In a way, we have to drill, drill, drill, like a soldier in boot camp, so that they become instinctive behaviors. We have to force ourselves, if need be, to yield to them. This is our part in spiritual circumcision because human nature will put up a fight. It does not want to yield.” [Deut 6:4-7]

“You shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies and his statutes, which he has commanded you. And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the LORD, that it may go well with you, and that you may go in and take possession of the good land that the LORD swore to give to your fathers.” [Deuteronomy 6:17-18]

“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.” [Psalms 19:79]

THIS IS WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT THE LAWS OF GOD:

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” [Matthew 5:17-20]

“And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” [Luke 18:19]

BUT THIS IS WHAT PAUL SAYS ABOUT THE LAW WHICH CLEARLY CONTRADICTS BOTH GOD AND JESUS:

“Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” [Romans 3:27-28]

“And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” [Acts 13:39]

“For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.” [Gatatians 3:10-13]

“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” [Galatians 2:16]

PAUL PLAGIARIZED THAT FROM THE TORAH AND HERE IT IS:

“And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree: His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.” [Deuteronomy 21:22-23]

Think about this for one moment. Jesus came to observe and fulfill the law, but Paul said different, Jesus was sinless so therefore this passage should not be ascribed to Jesus. How can someone claim that Jesus was accursed of God and that the law was also a curse when it says different in other places of the Bible? According to Islam, Satan is accursed, not Jesus. Here is the definition of “accursed” so please understand what Paul is teaching in his false doctrine.

ACCURSED: 1. Abominable; hateful: 2. Being under a curse; doomed.

GOD SAYS THAT HIS LAW IS PERFECT NOT A CURSE:

“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether”. [Psalms 19:79]

PAUL IS THE FALSE PROPHET NO DOUBT ABOUT IT:

“And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time”. [Daniel 7:25]

HISTORICAL QUOTES ABOUT PAUL AND HIS DOCTRINE FROM HISTORIANS, PHILOSPORS, AND THEOLOGIANS:

Bishop John S. Spong (Episcopal Bishop of Newark)

“Paul’s words are not the Words of God. They are the words of Paul- a vast difference.”(Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, p. 104, Harper San Francisco, 1991).

Thomas Jefferson

“Paul was the first corrupter of the doctrines of Jesus.” (All references not listed here, can be found in Christianity Betrayed)

Carl Sagan (Scientist; Author)

“My long-time view about Christianity is that it represents an amalgam of two seemingly immiscible parts–the religion of Jesus and the religion of Paul. Thomas Jefferson attempted to excise the Pauline parts of the New Testament. There wasn’t much left when he was done, but it was an inspiring document.” (Letter to Ken Schei [author of Christianity Betrayed])

Albert Schweitzer

“Where possible Paul avoids quoting the teaching of Jesus, in fact even mentioning it. If we had to rely on Paul, we should not know that Jesus taught in parables, had delivered the sermon on the mount, and had taught His disciples the ‘Our Father.’ Even where they are specially relevant, Paul passes over the words of the Lord.”

Wil Durant (Philosopher)

“Paul created a theology of which none but the vaguest warrants can be found in the words of Christ.”

“Fundamentalism is the triumph of Paul over Christ.”

Walter Kaufmann (Professor of Philosophy, Princeton)

“Paul substituted faith in Christ for the Christlike life.”

George Bernard Shaw

“No sooner had Jesus knocked over the dragon of superstition than Paul boldly set it on its legs again in the name of Jesus.”

Thomas Hardy

“The new testament was less a Christiad than a Pauliad.”

Hyam Maccoby (Talmudic Scholar)

“As we have seen, the purposes of the book of Acts is to minimize the conflict between Paul and the leaders of the Jerusalem Church, James and Peter. Peter and Paul, in later Christian tradition, became twin saints, brothers in faith, and the idea that they were historically bitter opponents standing for irreconcilable religious standpoints would have been repudiated with horror. The work of the author of Acts was well done; he rescued Christianity from the imputation of being the individual creation of Paul, and instead gave it a respectable pedigree, as a doctrine with the authority of the so-called Jerusalem Church, conceived as continuous in spirit with the Pauline Gentile Church of Rome. Yet, for all his efforts, the truth of the matter is not hard to recover, if we examine the New Testament evidence with an eye to tell-tale inconsistencies and confusions, rather than with the determination to gloss over and harmonize all difficulties in the interests of an orthodox interpretation.” (The Mythmaker, p.139,Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1986)

Jeremy Bentham (English Philosopher)

“If Christianity needed an Anti-Christ, they needed look no farther than Paul.” (Paraphrased. Looking for a copy of “Not Paul, but Jesus” in order to retrieve the exact quote.)

LET’S WRAP IT UP!

It’s obvious that Paul’s teachings is not in agreement with the teachings of Jesus, so therefore it is deception at best! Sorry to say but in many cases Christians quote a lot of Paul’s writings so in actualality they follow the teachings of Paul not God’s or Jesus’. Christians please humble yourselves and realise that you’re being deceived and lied to and it is now time to accept Islam and worship only God (Allah) alone in order to achieve true salvation and guidance. Ameen!

May Allah forgive me for any errors on my part, Ameen!

POINT OUT Errors or If there is any Lie We feed from our self….If Any Christian find and please Correct us…!

A Guide to Missionary Tactics Against Islam

This guide is intended to improve awareness about the tactics used by some groups and cults. The tactics of missionaries and missionary groups may vary, but there are some basic guidelines to keep in mind that will be helpful in dealing with them.

HIDDEN AGENDA

Some missionaries attempt to develop a rapport with their subject without divulging their own religious affiliation or intention. As an example to make making them seem less “Christian” missionaries are coached by their superiors to avoid using words such as “Christ” or “savior” or “baptize”. If you are not sure about the religious identity of the stranger who begins talking to you about religion, ask him directly about his beliefs and agenda. Be suspicious of an indirect answer. Remember these people aren’t interested in dialogue or trying to improve Anglo-Muslim links but are often in SECURE PAID EMPLOYMENT to Sell Christianity.

CREATING DOUBT

When talking to a Muslim about religion, a missionary may attempt to elicit as many “I don’t know” responses as possible, in order to establish his superiority in matters of religion. Don’t allow yourself to be intimidated! Remember, the missionary has studied Islamic beliefs for the sole purpose to sell Christianity to Muslims. There heart are sealed and they are no longer interested in truth. Keep in mind that he is not speaking to you in order to exchange ideas, but rather to create as much doubt in your mind and lead you away from your faith. If you want to learn more about the Quran, do so from someone who doesn’t have hidden motives. Therefore, feel free to simply end the conversation and walk away. Remember that many of these questions and associations they are trying to sell have been debunked many times by more learned Muslims. If they were interested in dialogue the would be speaking to respected elders and community leaders exploring common ground improving understanding and faith in the community, but all one sees are the often the same question again to unsuspecting victims. Ask yourself what do they hope to gain ? However, some of you may want to listen to their arguments and then learn the Muslim response, in order to be better prepared for future encounters. One must also remember that many missionaries intentionally go into Muslim areas in Britain so they train themselves and create the most seductive “Sales Pitch” they can manage. Once they have finished there training in salesmanship they will target unsuspecting Muslims (the lonely, vulnerable and weak) lacking in knowledge. The following pointers should give you a basic idea of what to look for.

DECEPTION

The missionary may tell you that he (or a Christian friend or acquaintance) was once an Muslim, or that he had a solid Muslim education, a traditional Muslim family life, etc. This is almost always a lie, so don’t let him fool you. The hidden message that he is attempting to convey is that he came to accept Christianity after knowing and overcoming all of the Muslim objections (Jesus being son of god, Bible being corrupted by man etc.), and therefore, why should you bother to check it out? He may drop certain Islamic phrases or talk about the details of his “traditional” Muslim upbringing, in order to lend more credence to his story. In fact, his “memory” is often the result of careful coaching. The missionary might tell you that he knows the Islamic objections to his arguments, and will then proceed to show how such objectives are ill-founded. Don’t expect to hear the real Islamic response from such a source.

GOOD, BAD OR UGLY

Don’t be taken in by the “good cop – bad cop” routine. This routine involves a “bad cop” who threatens the subject, and a “good cop” who protects him from the “bad cop”. The subject is so grateful to the “good cop”, and so worried about losing the good-will of his protector, that he invariably shows his appreciation by telling the “good cop” what he wants to hear. In similar fashion, the “good” Christian talks about how much he loves and respects Muslims, while denouncing the “bad” Christians who hate and have persecuted Muslims. The naive and ones lacking in knowledge of Christian history and bigotry will feel grateful to the “good cop”, and may automatically judge him to be a friend and reliable ally. Watch out for hidden motives behind such “friendship”.

WHO BELIEVES IN THE SON OF GOD?

At the outset, the missionary will talk about his belief that Jesus is the messiah. Many Muslims don’t find out until later, often after they have joined a Christian friendship group, that their fundamental belief is that Jesus is god. Any talk about “the messiah” or “son of god” is merely a cover for that belief, basic to Christianity . However, since such a concept is repugnant in Islam, this most basic belief of Christianity is glossed over as much as possible when missionaries talk to Muslims.

PROOF or SPOOF? Don’t be impressed by the claim that Christians have 50, or 100, or 300 “proofs” that they are correct in their claims about Jesus. As proof after proof is shown to be meaningless, the missionary will hide behind his numbers, as if to say: “Well, we have so many more proofs, what’s the difference if you can disprove some of them”. He will attempt to “split the difference” with you: “Well, even if half our proofs prove nothing, we still have another 25 or 50, or 150”. Remember, all of their proofs can be shown to be untenable. Keep in mind that a faulty point is not worth 50% of a good point, or 25%, or 10%. It is worthless. The simple mathematics are: 50 x 0 = 0, 100 x 0 = 0, 300 x 0 = 0.

CIRCULAR REASONING

Very often, the reasoning used by Christian missionaries is circular. That is, the “proof” only points to something is if you believe it in the first place, and therefore is no proof at all.

MISTRANSLATION

Be aware of the problem of mistranslating. A person who is not familiar with Arabic can be lead to accept a mistranslating which puts a Christian “twist” on a verse that never had such a meaning in the original. If you can’t check it out yourself, talk to a reliable person who can. Remember, it is no coincidence that the Muslims of past generations, who were much better versed in the Arabic, never had any serious problems refuting Christian missionary arguments. In addition beware of Christian Translations of the Quran, many date from sixteenth to the eighteenth century with the sole intention of to discredit Islam. Please keep in mind ANY translation (interpretation) of the Quran will most definitely contain errors In its natural language (Arabic), the Quran is the direct Word of Allah (God) to mankind through the prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). Any translation of the Quran no longer retains that ‘official’ and perfect status, however it can be tremendously helpful to beginning students wanting to learn more about Islam. We would strongly encourage those want to learn about Islam to purchase a copy of the Quran but with the following conditions: + get one with commentary (tafseer) + make sure the tafseer is scholarly (e.g. references to reasons behind a verse, references to Hadith and Sunnah, etc.) An excellent English translation and commentary of the Quran is Maududi’s recently published work “The Meaning of the Quran”.

QUOTING OUT OF CONTEXT

Often a verse will be quoted to you that has been taken entirely out of context. When the entire chapter that contains that verse is read, it becomes clear that it does not corroborate the Missionary.

CONCLUSION: SELLING TIMESHARE OR CHRISTSHARE

You may recognize many of the tactics used by some Missionaries in selling there faith as they have similarities to disreputable Timeshare and Double glazing salesman, and this raises some interesting points: Why would one propagate faith in such a deceitful and underhanded way, is it because: God will not aid ones seeking the true path? A bad product is difficult to sell unless you dupe someone? If you are genuinely interested in faith Why don’t you go ask someone with a sound knowledge and understanding of Islam, instead of targeting the naive, vulnerable and the weak. Why do you seek out the naive and week and then intentionally ask Mischievous questions, when they have been answered many times by learned scholars and by people that you have approached over the years? Surely this does not add to knowledge or understanding. Why do you target Muslims Considering the moral depravity often in your own family and neighbourhood and within so called Christians. Is it because Muslims are wealthy in faith? Is it because you have so much hatred for us and you are unable, incapable or tired of other methods: RIDICULE There is a very large number of publications by Muslims explaining Islam in plain and simple English. Look in any public library for books on Islam, a large proportion of them will be by Orientalists and Christian missionaries, what do you think motivates someone to write a book on a subject one does not believe in and an area that has been already covered by numerous other books? Remember Christian “Translations” of the Quran whose sole intention was to discredit Islam. CRUSADES Butchered everyone including defenceless women and children or any one else that got in there way. Although it has taken many hundreds of years Crusaders have improved they now only kill some women and RAPE THE REST. The twentieth centaury has seen “Ethnic Cleansing” replace the word Crusade, in 1996 one of the youngest recorded victim of rape in Bosnia was a baby of 4 Months old. Many women and children had two of there fingers severed by the Serbs so that the three remaining fingers would remind them of the Trinity.

A WAY FORWARD

While we as Muslims believe that the entire Quran is the word of God and we would like every one to accept it as such, God Himself has given the freedom of religion which we respect. With that in mind, all we hope is that non-Muslims will at least enlighten themselves with an open heart and mind by knowing what Islam is. We hope that Muslims, Christians and Jews will find ways to work together to bring peace on earth by eradicating immorality, fear, hate, disease, poverty and injustice. Muslims welcome the chance improve dialogue and understanding with all faiths. In addition we do not object to other groups explaining there ideas and faith to whomever expresses an interest, but we do think it is unacceptable that missionaries demean other faiths, use deceitful methods and harass communities with what can be described highly trained and focused door to door salesman.

USE THE PROPER RESOURCES!

Most Muslims spend their time studying Islam trying to find a path to true enlightenment, and therefore may not be familiar with the “curve-ball” approach of missionaries. If you need advice concerning a problem of this sort, get in touch with people who are familiar with the tactics being used and who know how to deal with them.

Qur'an

Qur'an (Photo credit: Mike_fleming)

The Qur’an teaches us how to think, not what to think

By Ahmad Eldin

It is impressive for one to see that a book 1500 old, is approaching the truth with a revolutionary method and is arguing for wisdom. In this article we see that the Qur’an is approaching the reader with reasonable questions in order to make him aware of the truth on his own.

It is very reasonable for some to believe in error, that the Qur’an is a book strictly dogmatic in its positions. Such and other worst ideas, propagated by the opponents of Islam without any evidence or evidence from the Holy Qur’an itself. In the Qur’an of course is stressed the belief, the theological positions, the words of God, the rules. But all these are not dry without arguments.

The Qur’an as we said above, is approaching those that it considers as truths with questions. Questions raised by the Almighty which sometimes He answers Himself or at other times He lets man give the answers. The purpose is clear. Through this democratic method, man understands how to study or to explore the truth objectively, thus reaching it without logical errors. This method not only could not be characterized as doctrinal, in contrast the man learns how to think rather than what to think.

Let’s look at a few examples of this methology and these questions:

“Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture? Then will you not reason?” Al Qur’an 2:44

The question is response to hypocrisy. It makes references to those who call for justice and piety but forget to apply them themselves. It stresses a group of people “who study the scriptures.” For those the hypocrisy is worse as they read for justice first hand. They preach it but do not act it in their own lives.

In our own society we can give thousand of examples.

The important thing in this piece is that the Qur’an sets this question, although it has taught us the law. This question makes the reader understand by himself not to be a hypocrite.

The Qur’an says asking again:

“Then did you think that we created you uselessly and that to us you would not be returned?” Al Qur’an 23:115

In a simple question here the Qur’an “answers” the deniers of the afterlife and atheists. If there is no afterlife then everything we live here is futile without real meaning. Our existence itself is meaningless. Only with the existence of God and the existence of the afterlife, there is meaning in our struggles, worries, joys, etc Otherwise we are here without purpose, without substance. What is the point of morality, love, values, justice, democracy, equality,  and all that? And how the unjust will answer for their injustices and how will the righteous be rewarded?

The issue of course rouses much debate, but it should be noted that the Qur’an by putting a question, leads the reader to the logical conclusion, that there is no possibility not to be an Omnipotent Almighty, who runs the Universe and simply created us for this short life alone.

A similar question is also where the Qur’an says:

“Indeed, Allah is the cleaver of grain and date seeds. He brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living. That is Allah ; so how are you deluded?” Al Qur’an 6:95

This question is addressed to the pagans and idolaters . How can they worship something that has no power to do anything? How can they worship something that their own hands made?

Here we have once again the question that leads to a logical answer.

The Qur’an also says:

“He created man from a sperm-drop; then at once, he is a clear adversary.” Al Quran 16:4

The Qur’an here refers to the “competitor” and ” rival”. The competitor, is the one who with arrogance and pride tries to look like God. Well the place is full of them. Just take a look around you. To those people who think that due to their power they have everything ,God made a reference to the  material from which  they emanated. Semen! Seeds  they were like all of us from a humble substance and now they are standing as deniers of God through their acts and beliefs. The reference to the semen stresess that he  (the man) was weak and nearly non existent . And now he thinks he has it all.

The Qur’ran has thousands of such questions on any topic of concern to humans. Questions that God does not answer but leaves the man to answer to understand himself the truth. Such a methodology, one can find only in the Qur’an. The Qur’an is the only theological book that approaches the truth and argues on the basis of its  own readers. Is this not  a sign that we are dealing with a book of non-human?I

In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

The ways Kuffars used to Stop Islam in Early Years!

Assalam Alaykum Brother and Sisters,

There are many website talking bad about Islam and Specially spreading lies about Prophet Muhammad s.a.w . But today im going to share the ways Kuffars used to Stop Islam. How they behaved and created troubles for prophet[pbuh]. How he was abused.The tortures and problem early Muslims faced just because they accepted Islam.

Bilal R.A was badly beaten by his Master,Ammar father was badly tortured and died .. and his mother also died as kuffars split her from middle just for saying “There is no God but Allah” .

Few Incidents are extremely bad with prophet [pbuh], which will make you cry , i failed  to control my tears. read those blue color lines carefully.

I want all readers to share this Article with everyone,I hope you will inshahAllah!..

At the beginning of the fourth year of the Call, and for a period of some months, the polytheists confined their harassment tactics to the above-mentioned ones. But on realizing the futility of these procedures, they decided to organize a full-scale opposition campaign. They called for a general meeting and elected a committee of twenty-five men of Quraish notables with Abu Lahab, the Prophet’s uncle, as a chairman. Following some lengthy deliberations, they reached a decisive decision to take measures deemed to stop the tidal wave of Islam through different channels. They were determined to spare no effort, in combatting the new faith.

They decided to malign the Messenger of Allah [pbuh] and put the new converts to different sorts of torture using all available resources. It was easy to put the resolutions relating to the new converts who were deemed weak into effect. As for the Prophet [pbuh] , it was not easy to malign him because he had such gravity, magnanimity and matchless perfection of character that deterred even his enemies from committing any act of folly against him. He had, as well, Abu Talib, his uncle, who came from a noble descent and had an awe-inspiring clan to support him.

This situation was a source of great worry to the infidels, but they felt that they could no longer exercise patience or show any tolerance before a formidable power marching steadily to annul their religious office and temporal authority.

  • Abu Lahab himself took the initiative in the new series of persecutions, and started to mete out countless aspects of harmful deeds, hatred and spite against Muhammad [pbuh] .
    Starting with flinging stones at him, forcing his two sons to divorce their wives Ruqaiya and Umm Kulthum, the Prophet’s daughters [Fi Zilal Al-Qur’an 30/282; Tafheem-ul-Qur’an 6/522], gloating over him on his second son’s death calling him ‘the man cut off with offspring’, and then shadowing his step during the pilgrimage and forums seasons to belie him and entice the bedouins against him and his Call [At-Tirmidhi].

    His wife, Umm Jameel bint Harb, the sister of Abu Sufyan had also her share in this ruthless campaign.

    She proved that she was not less than her husband in the enmity and hatred she harboured for the Prophet [pbuh] . She used to tie bundles of thorns with ropes of twisted palm-leaf fibre and strew them about in the paths which the Prophet [pbuh] was expected to take, in order to cause him bodily injury.She was a real shrew, bad-tempered with abusive language, highly skilled in the art of hatching intrigues, and enkindling the fire of discord and sedition. She was deservedly stained as ‘the carrier of firewood’ in the Noble Qur’an. On receiving this news, she directly proceeded to the Mosque with a handful of pebbles to hurl at the Prophet [pbuh] .Allah, the Great, took away her sight and she saw only Abu Bakr who was sitting immediately next to the Prophet [pbuh]. She then addressed Abu Bakr most audaciously threatening to break his Companion’s mouth with her handful of pebbles, and recited a line of verse pregnant with impudent defiance: “We have disobeyed the dispraised one, rejected his Call, and alienated ourselves from his religion.” When she had left, Abu Bakr turned to the Prophet [pbuh] and inquired about the matter. The Prophet [pbuh] assured him that she did not see him because Allah had taken away her sight.[Ibn Hisham 1/335]

  • Abu Lahab and his household used to inflict those shameful examples of torture and harassment in spite of the blood relation that tied them for he was the Prophet’s uncle and both lived in two contiguous houses. Actually, few of the Prophet’s neighbours abstained from maligning him. They even threw the entrails of a goat on his back while he was performing his prayers. He always used to complain about that unbecoming neighbourliness but to no avail for they were deeply indulged in error.
  • Al-Bukhari, on the authority of Ibn Mas‘ud, narrated that once when the Prophet [pbuh] was prostrating himself while praying in Al-Ka‘bah, Abu Jahl asked his companions to bring the dirty foetus of a she-camel and place it on his back.‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait was the unfortunate man who hastened to do this ignoble act. A peal of laughter rose amongst the infidels.In the meanwhile, Fatimah, the daughter of the Prophet [pbuh], happened to pass that way. She removed the filth from her father’s back. The Prophet [pbuh] invoked the wrath of Allah upon them, especially upon Abu Jahl, ‘Utbah bin Rabi‘a, Shaibah bin Rabi‘a, Al-Waleed bin ‘Utbah, Omaiyah bin Khalaf and ‘Uqbah bin Mu‘ait. It is recorded that all of them were killed in the battle of Badr. [Bukhari 1/37]
  • Scandal-mongering and backbiting were also amongst the means of oppression that the chiefs of Makkah, in general, and Omaiyah bin Khalaf, in particular, resorted to in their overall process of evil-doing. In this regard, Allah says:

“Woe to every slanderer and backbiter.” [Al-Qur’an 104:1]

  • ‘Uqbah bin Al-Mu‘ait once attended an audience of the Prophet [pbuh] and listened to him preaching Islam. A close friend of his, Ubai bin Khalaf, heard of this. He could not tolerate any act of this sort, so he reproached ‘Uqbah and ordered him to spit in the Prophet’s holy face, and he shamelessly did it. Ubai did not spare any thinkable way to malign the Prophet [pbuh] ; he even ground old decomposed bones and blew the powder on him. Al-Akhnas bin Shuraique Ath-Thaqafi used to detract from the character of the Prophet [pbuh] in season and out of season. The Noble Qur’an, in direct reference to this man’s ignominious deeds, attached to him nine abominable traits:

“And obey not everyone who swears much, — and is considered worthless, a slanderer, going about with calumnies, hinderer of the good, transgressor, sinful, cruel — after all that base-born (of illegitimate birth).” [Al-Qur’an 68:10-13] [Ibn Hisham 1/356]

  • Abu Jahl’s arrogance and haughtiness blocked all avenues that could produce the least light of belief in his heart:

“So he (the disbeliever) neither believed (in this Qur’an, in the Message of Muhammad [pbuh]) nor prayed!” [Al-Qur’an 75:31]

He, moreover, wanted to debar the Prophet [pbuh] from the Noble Sanctuary. It happened once that the Prophet [pbuh] was praying within the precinct of the Sacred House, when Abu Jahl proceeded threateningly and uttering abusive language. The Prophet [pbuh] chided him severely to which Abu Jahl answered back defiantly claiming that he was the mightiest in Makkah; Allah then revealed:

“Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers).” [Al-Qur’an 96:17]

In another version of the same incident, the Prophet [pbuh] took Abu Jahl by his neck, rocked him severely saying:

“Woe to you [O man (disbeliever)]! And then (again) woe to you! Again, woe to you [O man (disbeliever)]! And then (again) woe to you!” [Al-Qur’an 75:34, 35].

  • Notwithstanding this reproach, Abu Jahl would never wake up to himself nor did he realize his foolish practices. On the contrary, he was determined to go to extremes, and swore he would dust the Messenger’s face and tread on his neck. No sooner had he proceeded to fulfill his wicked intention than he was seen turning back shielding himself with his hands (as if something horrible in his pursuit). His companions asked him what the matter was. He said: “I perceived a ditch of burning fire and some wings flying.” Later on, the Messenger commented saying, “If he had proceeded further, the angels would have plucked off his limbs one after another.” [Fi Zilal Al-Qur’an 29/312; Muslim]

Such was the disgraceful treatment meted out to the Prophet [pbuh], the great man, respected as he was by his compatriots, with an influential man, his uncle Abu Talib, at his back to support him. If the matters were so with the Prophet [pbuh], what about those people deemed weak with no clan to support them?

Let us consider their situation in some detail. Whenever Abu Jahl heard of the conversion of a man of  high birth with powerful friends, he would degrade his prudence and intellect, undermine his judgement; and threaten him with dire consequences if he was a merchant. If the new convert was socially weak, he would beat him ruthlessly and put him to unspeakable tortures.[Ibn Hisham 1/320]

  • The uncle of ‘Uthman bin ‘Affan used to wrap ‘Uthman in a mat of palm leaves, and set fire under him. When Umm Mus‘ab bin ‘Umair heard of her son’s conversion, she put him to starvation and then expelled him from her house. He used to enjoy full luxurious easy life, but in the aftermath of the tortures he sustained, his skin got wizened, and he assumed a horrible physical appearance. [Rahmat-ul-lil’alameen 1/57; Talqeeh Ahl-al-Athar p.60]
  • Bilal, the slave of Omaiyah bin Khalaf, was severely beaten by his master when the latter came to know of his conversion to Islam. Sometimes a rope was put around his neck and street boys were made to drag him through the streets and even across the hillocks of Makkah. At times he was subjected to prolonged deprivation of food and drink; at others he was bound up, made to lie down on the burning sand and under the crushing burden of heavy stones. Similar other measures were resorted to in order to force him to recant. All this proved in vain. He persisted in his belief in the Oneness of Allah. On one such occasion, Abu Bakr was passing by; moved by pity, he purchased and emancipated him from slavery. [Ibn Hisham 1/317-318; Rahmat-ul-lil’alameen 1/57]
  • Another victim of the highhandedness of Quraish was ‘Ammar bin Yasir, a freed slave of Bani Makhzoum. He, along with his mother and father, embraced Islam in its early phase. They were repeatedly made to lie on the burning sand and were beaten severely. ‘Ammar was at times tossed up on embers. The Prophet [pbuh] was greatly moved by the atrocities which were being perpetrated upon ‘Ammar and his family. He always comforted them and raised his hand in prayer and said: “Be patient, you will verily find your abode in the Paradise.” Yasir, the father, died because of repeated tortures. Sumaiyah, ‘Ammar’s mother was bayoneted to death by Abu Jahl himself, and thus merited the title of the first woman martyr in Islam. ‘Ammar himself was subjected to various modes of torture and was always threatened to sustain severe suffering unless he abused Muhammad [pbuh] and recanted to Al-Lat and ‘Uzza. In a weak moment, he uttered a word construed as recantation though his heart never wavered and he came back once to the Prophet [pbuh] , who consoled him for his pain and confirmed his faith. Immediately afterwards the following verse was revealed:

“Whoever disbelieved in Allah after his belief, except him who is forced thereto and whose heart is at rest with Faith —.” [Al-Qur’an 16:106]

  • Abu Fakeeh, Aflah, a freed slave of Bani ‘Abd Ad-Dar was the third of those helpless victims. The oppressors used to fasten his feet with a rope and drag him in the streets of Makkah. [Eijaz At-Tanzil p.53]
  • Khabbab bin Al-Aratt was also an easy victim to similar outrages on every possible occasion. He experienced exemplary torture and maltreatment. The Makkan polytheists used to pull his hair and twist his neck, and made him lie on burning coal with a big rock on his chest to prevent him from escaping. Some Muslims of rank and position were wrapped in the raw skins of camels and thrown away, and others were put in armours and cast on burning sand in the scorching sun of Arabia. [Talqeeh Fuhoom Ahl-al-Athar p.60; Rahmat-ul-lil’alameen 1/57]
  • Even the women converts were not spared, and the list is too long to include all of them. Zanirah, An-Nahdiyah and her daughter, Umm ‘Ubais and many others had their full share of persecution at the hand of the oppressors — ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab included — of course before his conversion to Islam. [Ibn Hisham 1/319]
  • Abu Bakr, a wealthy believer, purchased and freed some of those she-slaves, just as he did with regard to Bilal and ‘Amir bin Fuheirah.

In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

Calling towards the path of truth – a motivational way.

And who is better in speech than he who invites to Allah, and does righteous deeds, and says: “I am one of the Muslims.”
[Al-Quran, 41:33]

When we feel that Allah (swt) has blessed us as a Muslim and given us hidayah, and then we realize many around us are still wandering around, without realizing what their real goal is to be in this world. This includes non-Muslims and well as many non-practicing Muslims who are born in a Muslim family. In such cases it becomes the duty of a rightly guided person to motivate these people to come towards the right path.

The path shown by our Lord, the path of salvation… As Allah (swt) says in Quran: “Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al- Ma`ruf (all that Islam orders) and forbidding Al-Munkar (all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.” [3: 104]

Now the question comes how to motivate them?? Will they listen to us?? What if they think we are fools and talking something imaginary??

This needs some right management skills and little patience. Remember, everybody has a motivational fuse i.e. everybody can be motivated. Whenever we feel the task is difficult, all we have to do is to go 1400 years back and recall the life history of the Noble Prophet – a perfect example. Some points which should be taken care are as follows:

Manners and conduct:

First of all, Muslims should set best example in manners and conduct, justice, equality, and protection of people’s rights. They should show an ideal picture of Islam with the help of their conducts and manners by following the path of our beloved Prophet (pbuh). Remember, many non-Muslims in the life span of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) accepted Islam just by getting inspired by the Ideal way of living of many Muslims around them. As Allah (swt) says in Quran: “The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better, then verily he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend”. [41:34]

Also, Muslims should be sure that they never fail to follow for what they advise for. Means, he himself follows that which he says, so it benefits him as well as others. He is not one of those who enjoin good but do not do it themselves, or who forbid evil yet commits. Allah says in the Quran: “O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do.”[61:2-3]

Different people different needs:

Different people can be motivated in different ways. Thus, before we start our work, we need to know the psychology and background of the person we are motivating. Their mind set, their thoughts, their way of living and their problems should be known properly.

Most of the people are ignorant, following the cultures and rituals of their forefathers. They don’t know for what they are living. We will find many ignorant people around us which are in search of the truth. They get so much distracted from the outer picture of religion that they don’t know where to go and how to find their Lord. Muslims have to recognize these types of people and have to show them the true picture of religion and God. These are the people who are waiting for the truth to come. As soon as they see the truth, they accept it without any hesitation. Then it becomes the duty of the Muslims to give them what they need when they ask for it.

Most of the non-practicing Muslims know the basic concept of ‘Oneness-of-God’. They believe their Lord is one, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as the last Messenger and about the next birth. The problem with them is, they are so much involved in problems faced in this world and they don’t realize the importance of the life after death. In such cases, we have to make them realize the importance of the religion. Show them the right view of the religion and motivate them to follow that. Make them recognize the meaning of the verse of the Quran which says: “O you who believe! Enter Silm (Islam) perfectly, and follow not the footsteps of Shaytan. Verily, he is to you a plain enemy.” [2:208]. Tell them that Allah commands His servants who believe in Him and have faith in His Messenger to implement all of Islam’s legislation and law, to adhere to all of its commandments, as much as they can, and to refrain from all of its prohibitions. Allah says: “O you who believe, Obey Allah and Obey the Messenger and do not waste your deeds” [47:33].

Concentrate on teaching the basics:

We have to make sure that when we are motivating anybody, we should only concentrate on the basics of the religion. When the foundation is right then the whole structure will be right. As for non-muslims, the first thing which we want them to realize is the importance of Islam. Without going into the details and touching the differences, if the person has some knowledge and asks questions then reply according to the conditions with examples if possible. Once the person is inspired by it and accepts the oneness of God, the rest of the path is easy.

While motivating non-practicing muslims, try not to touch the sensitive issues regarding differences. Always equip your points with the references of Quran and Sunnah. Be plain in your explanation and humble yourself. The more humble you are, the more you can convince people.

Present them Quran:

This is the Book, wherein there is no doubt, guidance for the Muttaqin.
[Al Quran, 2:2]

What our beloved Prophet (pbuh) used to do when he calls anybody towards Islam? He (pbuh) used to read Quran. Remember, Quran is the book of Allah (swt). It has got a miraculous power. Not only non-muslims, most of the Muslims also don’t understand the real purpose of the Quran. Many of them have never read the translation of the Quran. So both of the Muslims and non-Muslims need to read them by understanding. Present them the translation of Quran in their local language.

Ask them to read it and if they seem to take interest, then clear their doubts which they get while reading them.

Be polite and fair:

We have to make sure that when we call anybody towards the right path; it should be done in polite manner. As Allah (swt) says in the Quran

“Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better” [16:125]

While motivating a non-practicing Muslim, our speech should not be insulting. Don’t show them that we are better than you, rather help them to understand why they need to follow the religion totally, and partial understanding and partial following is not going to help them.

While motivating a non-Muslim, try not to abuse their Lords. As Allah (swt) says in the Quran “And insult not those whom they worship besides Allah, lest they insult Allah wrongfully without knowledge.” [6:108]. Thus, Allah prohibits His Messenger and the believers from insulting the false deities of the idolaters. Insulting their deities will lead to a bigger evil, for the idolaters might retaliate by insulting the God of the believers. Moreover, direct insult to their belief will make them arrogant, and they will even stop listening to the truth.

Motivation should be repeated:

Remember, Motivation once established, does not last if not repeated. Thus, once we recognize that the person is progressing, we need to repeat our motivational process again and again. Keep visiting them time to time. Invite them to your places and have a small talk of the things based on religion. If they are busy and don’t get much time then we can have a simple review of the things while having a coffee or while walking. “Weaker men wait for an opportunity, while the stronger creates them”

Our job is only to convey:

Allah says in the Quran “So remind them, you are only a one who reminds. You are not a dictator over them.” [88:21-22]. we should only convey the message of Allah to the people; rest is in the hands of Allah.

Finally it’s the will of Allah:

Don’t get disappointed, if you feel it is not working. Our work is just to motivate them. Giving them hidayah is to the will of Allah. As Allah (swt) says in the Quran: “Verily, you guide not whom you like but Allah guides whom He wills….” [28:56] which means: Allah knows best who deserves to be guided and who deserves to be misguided. Allah declares that even after this clear, plain and unequivocal explanation, most men will still not believe, due to their rebellion, stubbornness and hypocrisy.

“And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam; and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky.”
[Al-Quran, Al-Anaam (6), Verse 125]
