Basic Beliefs: Christian versus Muslim
||What Christians Believe
||What Muslims Believe
||God is three gods merged into one God. This one God is called a Trinity.
However, to say that God is three is a blasphemy of the highest order. All three parts of
the Trinity are "coequal" "co-eternal" and "the same
substance." For this reason, this doctrine is described as "a
||God is one God in the most basic, simple, and elementary meaning of the
word. He has no children, no parents nor any equal. In Islam God is known by the name
"Allah" and more than 99 other venerated names, such as "the
Merciful," "the Gracious," "the All-Powerful," etc.
||The second member of the Triune God, the Son of the first part of the Triune God, and
at the same time "fully" God in every respect.
||A very elect and highly esteemed messenger of God. No Muslim is a Muslim if he does
not believe this.
|The Holy Spirit
||The third member of the Triune God, but also "fully" God in every
||He is the angel Gabriel. The angel Gabriel is highly esteemed as the "Trustworthy
|Mary the mother of Jesus
||A chaste and pious human woman who gave birth to Jesus Christ, the second member of
the Trinity, the Son of God, and at the same time "fully" God Almighty in every
||A chaste and pious human woman who was chosen, purified, and preferred over all of the
women of creation to be the one to give birth to Gods elect messenger Jesus through the
command of God without any father whatsoever.
||Part of God which was "with" God but also "fully" God and then
became Jesus the Son of God.
||God's command "Be!" which resulted in Jesus' conception in the womb of Mary
without the need for a human father.
||All accepted, respected, and believed.
||All accepted, respected, and believed.
||Accepted as 100% the faultless word of God
||Muslims believe in the books of the previous prophets including the "Torah"
which was sent to Moses, the "Zaboor" (Psalms) which were given to David, the
"Injeel" (Gospel) which was given to Jesus, and the Qur'an which was given to
Muhammad However, Muslims are told that the previous scriptures were tampered with by
mankind and the Bible should only be accepted in as far as it is confirmed by the Qur'an.
It is to be treated with respect, however any statements which clearly oppose those of the
Qur'an are to be rejected as the work of mankind.
||Varying beliefs. Some believe that he was a liar, some believe he was a lunatic, some
believe he was the False Messiah, and yet others claim he was deceived by the Devil.
||The last messenger of God to all of humanity. He was known as "The Truthful, the
Trustworthy" before he received his first revelation. He was sent by God as a mercy
to all creation. He was a human being but performed a number of miracles during his
lifetime by the will of God.
||Varying beliefs ranging from it being a copy of the Bible to it being the work of
Muhammad (pbuh), to it's being the work of Christians and Jews who were conspiring with
||The last book of God sent to mankind. It was given the distinction of being personally
guarded by God from human tampering. It is on a literary level never before seen by
mankind. No Arab to this day has ever been able to meet it's challenge to "write a
work similar to it." It shall remain safe from the tampering of mankind till the day
of Judgment as a guidance for all Humanity.
|Message of Jesus
||That he was sent by God (who was at the same time "fully" Jesus) in order to
die on the cross and save all mankind from the sin of Adam. Without this sacrifice all of
humanity was destined to perish in the sin of Adam. After the crucifixion all that is
required of humanity is faith without any works.
||That he was sent by God as a messenger to the Jews in order to return them to the pure
and true religion of Moses, and to relieve them of some of the regulations which had been
placed upon them in ancient times. He taught them to have faith as well as works. Neither
one can stand alone.
|Jesus' giving life to the dead, healing the blind and the lepers
||All accepted. He performed them because he was the Son of God and also at the same
time "fully" God and the "incarnation" of God.
||All accepted. They were performed through the will of God just as Moses, Noah, and all
other prophets did so in ancient times through the will of God.
||Jesus was given over to the Jews. He was spat on, cut, humiliated, kicked, striped,
and finally hung up on the cross and killed very slowly and painfully.
||Jesus was not forsaken to the Jews to be abused and killed, however, it was "made
to appear so to them." God saved Jesus by raising him up unto Himself.
|The second coming of Jesus.
||Accepted. Originally expected to happen during the lifetime of the first disciples,
many predictions have been made later and he is still expected at any moment. He is
currently anticipated to arrive around the turn of the century (2000 C.E.)
||Accepted. Jesus did not die but was raised up into heaven by God. He shall return to
earth just before the Day of Judgment in order to kill the "False Messiah" and
to establish peace and justice on earth. He will kill the pigs, break the cross, and call
all humanity to Islam.
|The original sin
||All of humanity has inherited the sin of Adam. Only the death of the sinless offspring
of God could erase this sin. No one is born clean, no matter if his life is only for a
single day. Only baptism and faith in the death of Jesus can save one from this
||There is no such thing. Humanity is created by God destined for heaven unless they
chose to disobey Him and refuse His mercy. God can very trivially and effortlessly forgive
the sins of all of Humanity no matter if they were to fill the lofty regions of the sky.
Such a matter would be trivial and inconsequential for Him since He has already done much
more than that such as creating everything we can ever see, hear or imagine. He loves to
bestow His mercy and forgiveness on His creation and rewards the most trivial acts with
the most tremendous rewards. In order to achieve God's reward one must have faith as well
||The sin of Adam was so great that God could not forgive it by simply willing it,
rather it was necessary to erase it with the blood of a sinless innocent god named Jesus
who was also "fully" God.
||Adam "atoned" for his sin by saying "My Lord I have sinned and if
you do not forgive me and have mercy upon me then I shall indeed have lost." So
God forgave him. Similarly, all human beings have the door to forgiveness left open to
them by God until the day they die. There are no intermediaries between mankind and God.
If they sincerely repent to God, ask His forgiveness, and forsake their evil deeds before
their hour comes then He shall forgive them and there is nothing more pleasing to Him than
to forgive the sins of one who comes to Him in sincere repentance.
|The path to salvation
||If you have faith in the atonement of Jesus for the sin of Adam which you have
inherited then you shall be saved. You only need faith. No work is necessary.
||If you have faith in God, believe in His messengers, and obey His commands then He
shall multiply every single good deed that you do many, many times and erase your evil
deeds, until on the Day of Judgment His mercy shall cause your good deeds to far outweigh
your evil deeds and grant you passage into an ecstasy and Paradise so great that we can
not even imagine it, to abide there eternally. In the Hereafter there is only reward and
In this book it will be demonstrated (by God's will), through the
words of the Bible and some of history's most eminent conservative Biblical
scholars and references only, how most of the founding beliefs of
Christianity today were indeed inserted by mankind into the message of Jesus
long after his departure. Jesus (pbuh)
himself never had anything whatsoever to do with them. These beliefs include:
- The "Trinity."
- The claim that Jesus (pbuh) is the Son of God in the later "orthodox" sense.
- The "original sin" of Adam which mankind is alleged to have inherited.
- The "atonement," or death of Jesus (pbuh) on the cross in order to erase this
sin of Adam.
- The "incarnation" of God in the form of a human being, namely, Jesus (pbuh).
It will further be demonstrated that the true message of Jesus (pbuh) was:
- That God is One. He is indivisible. He has no equal.
- God has no children nor parents. There is no other god in existence other than God
- Jesus (pbuh) was a human being. He was not God, but only an elect messenger of God.
- God does not hold anyone responsible for the sin of anyone else, nor does He forgive the
sins of one man by sacrificing another.
- God does not give preference to a certain race, color, nation, lineage or anything else
above any other. Only a person's individual actions and worship will distinguish them in
the eyes of God.
- God's justice refuses that any human being bear the sin of any other.
- God is a merciful god who bestows His forgiveness without a price or asking for any
- Entering into heaven requires both faith and work. Neither one can stand alone.
Muslims are taught that throughout the ages, God sent messengers to all tribes and
nations all over the earth beginning with Adam (pbuh), the first prophet of God as well as
the father of humanity. Every time a messenger of God would pass away, his people would
begin to fall back on their evil deeds until a few generations later they would have
managed to have completely corrupted His original message to them. When God's message was
in danger of being completely obliterated by these people, He would chose from among them
a new messenger to receive the original, uncorrupted message and convey it to them. Some
of them would listen. Others would not. However, the message would always be available for
those who wanted it. In this manner, God made sure that all of mankind would always have
access to His true religion, no matter where or when they lived. It would then be up to
them to seek out this knowledge.
Muslims are further taught that each messenger was sent only to his own people. His
message was then fine-tuned to suit them. Thus, the basic message would be the same for
all messengers: "God is one!, Worship Him alone!" However, the details of each
people's worship would be molded to suit their lifestyle, state of knowledge, and so
forth. This was also true for Jesus (pbuh). Jesus was sent specifically to the Jews, and
only to the Jews. It shall be demonstrated how one of the most fundamental reasons which
led up to the loss of his message was that those who came after him attempted to preach it
to those for whom it was never intended, namely, the Gentiles. The Gentiles eventually
managed to introduce into the message of Jesus many aspects of their own beliefs which
ultimately led up to the loss of the message of Jesus.
This book demonstrates how the diversion of the religion of Jesus (pbuh) from it's
original teachings progressed in the following stages:
- Jesus (pbuh) came to show the Jews how their religion had been changed from that
preached to them by Moses and their previous prophets (pbut).
- Jesus (pbuh) called the Jews back to the true religion of God sent down upon their
previous messengers. Jesus himself observed every single aspect of the religion of Moses
(pbuh) steadfastly and uncompromisingly. He fasted as Moses (pbuh) fasted, he worshipped
as Moses (pbuh) worshipped, he refrained from tasting a single pig, he believed in
circumcision and himself was circumcised, he observed the Sabbath, never having violated
it. He did this up until the crucifixion. It was only after the crucifixion, according to
the Bible, that he allegedly returned in "visions" to Paul in order to nullify
the law he had spent his whole life upholding. The Bible actually bears witness
that during his lifetime, Jesus commanded his followers to follow the religion of Moses
(pbuh) and threatened severe retribution from God for all of his followers who would
forsake a single aspect of this religion until the end of time (see below).
- Jesus (pbuh) departed from this earth and his apostles continued to follow his teachings
religiously. They too followed the religion of Moses (pbuh) as Jesus (pbuh) had done
before them and commanded them to do. For the first three decades after the departure of
Jesus (pbuh), the followers of Jesus would merely be Jews who affirmed that Jesus (pbuh)
was their promised Messiah. For the first three decades after the departure of Jesus
(pbuh), his followers would continue to worship in the synagogues and Temple of the Jews
and observe all of the aspects of the religion of Moses (pbuh) without exception.
- Shortly after the departure of Jesus (pbuh), a Jew named Saul of Tarsus persecutes
Jesus' followers every way he knows how. By his own admission, he does his utmost to
utterly waste the Church and to wipe the religion of Jesus from the face of the earth and
the minds of men. He has never met Jesus (pbuh) in person.
- Suddenly Saul claims to be receiving "visions" from Jesus (pbuh). The apostle
Barnabas takes him under his wing, and through Barnabas he is accepted by the rest of the
apostles. Barnabas then travels with him extensively until his reputation as a persecutor
and killer of Christians is replaced with one of a true convert.
- Now Saul parts ways with the apostle of Jesus (pbuh), Barnabas, and decides to preach to
the Gentiles. He claims that the apostles of Jesus (pbuh) are lazy, misguided, hypocrites.
He claims that it was necessary for him to constantly guide the apostles out of their
ignorance into the truth of God which he was receiving in his "visions." He
openly claims that he learned nothing from the apostles, and every single word he preached
was from direct divine inspiration. The neighboring gentiles hated the Jews with such a
passion that he found it all but impossible to convince them to accept the Judaism that
Jesus (pbuh) practiced his whole life and taught his apostles to carry on after him until
the end of time.
- Saul readily admits in the Bible in many places that he was willing to do anything
without exception in order to convert the gentiles. He claims that everything has
been made lawful for him. For this reason, Saul begins to compromise with the pagan
gentiles and simplify the religion of Jesus for them in order to make it more appealing to
them that they might convert.
- Saul continues to compromise with the gentiles and mold the religion of Jesus (pbuh)
closer and closer to their established beliefs in order to gain their conversion. In the
end, all that he requires of them is "faith" without work. The pagan gentiles he
is preaching to worship many "sons of almighty Jupiter or Zeus" and other such
gods. Among them are such as Attis, Adonis, Dionysus, etc. They believe that these pagan
gods had died for their sins and been resurrected. Saul now explains to them that Jesus
(pbuh) was not merely a normal human prophet but a "Son of God" and that this
"Son of God" died in atonement for the sins of all mankind. The Gentiles
immediately see the parallels and the great degree of similarity with that which they
already believe. All they have to do is change a few labels. In this manner, Saul manages
to convince the Greeks (and other gentiles) to accept the "religion of Jesus."
This is because, unlike the Jews, the religion of the Greeks already accepts
"Trinities," and "father gods" and "son gods," and the death
of gods, and the resurrection of gods, and the incarnation of gods, and divine savior
gods, and the eating of the flesh of gods, and the drinking of the blood of gods...etc.
All of these concepts are old news to them. He becomes a great leader among them and is
named "Saint Paul."
- "Saint Paul" now writes extensively and gains more and more converts.
- Once his converts begin to exceed the number of converts to the more strict and
demanding religion of the apostles of Jesus (pbuh), they begin to kill the followers of
the apostles, persecute them, and burn their Gospels.
- The followers of "Saint Paul" are challenged to prove their claims of
"son of God," "original sin," ..etc. through the scriptures and prove
that Jesus (pbuh) or God had anything to do with them. They cannot. There are too many
verses which declare that there is only ONE God in existence and that He does not hold
mankind responsible for the sin of any man. Examples of these verses are available to this
day (e.g. Isaiah 43:10-11, Ezekiel 18:19-20, Deuteronomy 24:16...etc.). Thus, it becomes
necessary for them to recognize that God is a "Trinity" similar to the ancient
"Trinities" of the Greeks and Romans so that they can have three Gods but claim
that they only worship one. The ancient "Trinities" of Greek philosophy are
redefined with new labels and applied to God Almighty in order to define this new doctrine
of "three gods in one." Once again, the "Trinity" could not be proven
through the Bible, so the Church began to receive divine inspiration from God commanding
them to clarify their Bible so that the "Trinity" could be seen clearly (see for
example section 18.104.22.168). These "clarifications" would only be discovered by the
scholars of Christianity centuries later. They would later provide irrefutable proof of
how, when, and by whom these "clarifications" were inserted into the Bible. In
the twentieth century, Thirty two conservative biblical scholars of the highest
eminence backed by fifty cooperating denominations would justly throw out 1 John
5:7 as a fabricated insertion of the church. Many other fabrications would be discovered
- For the first four centuries CE Christianity is split into innumerable sects of
countless divergent beliefs. Countless gospels of varying degrees of authenticity begin to
spring up. These sects bitterly fight among one another with each one claiming that they
alone possess the "true" religion of Jesus and the "true" Gospel. All
of these sect vie for the backing of the Roman pagans in order to gain the upper hand over
the other sects and silence them once and for all.
- In the fourth century CE., the followers of the "Trinity" manage to enlist the
aid of the pagan Roman empire. They wield the power of this pagan nation to
"cleanse" the earth of the "heretical" and "blasphemous"
followers of the apostles. They later launch campaigns of "inquiry" to
- "Trinitarian" beliefs are touted as the only truly correct religion of Jesus
(pbuh). The writings of Paul are collected and today they form the majority of the books
of the new testament. The books of the apostles are burned. They are all labeled
"apocryphal" lies. The list of "truly inspired" books of the Bible
that we have in our hands today was not officially sanctioned until the year 367C.E. The
"Bibles" in the hands of the first three hundred years of Christians was very
drastically different than the ones in our hands today. Within the span of a three
centuries the Trinitarians manage to "recognize" that all of the books that were
considered inspired and divine during the very first centuries CE were indeed all lies and
apocrypha. Only those books that were considered apocryphal during these very first
centuries CE are now recognized to be canonical, authentic, and divine. Those who are
found concealing the original books of the apostles are now burned to death with their
books. Paul's followers obtain copies of the Gospels of the apostles. They copy them but
with drastic modifications to the doctrine found therein. They claim that the apostles
wrote them. These books are attributed to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The additions to
these books will continue for many more centuries. Only centuries later will Christian
scholars begin to see the evidence that the claimed authors did not write these books.
- Since the general populace of Christendom is perceived by the Church to be too backward
and heathenistic to understand such sacred scriptures, therefore it becomes necessary for
the Church to horde the Bible for their own personal use. Anyone who wishes to learn what
the Bible says must come to the Church and ask them. The Church then through a combination
of divine inspiration and verses of the Bible will tell them what they need to know.
- Six hundred years after Christ, Muhammad (pbuh) is born. He follows the religion of
Abraham (pbuh) which was handed down to him and all Arabs from the father of the Arabs,
Ishmael, the eldest son of prophet Abraham (pbut). Upon reaching the age of 40, God sends
the angel Gabriel to Muhammad to teach him His final message, the message of Islam. He
tells him that the "people of the book" have changed the religion of Jesus
(pbuh) and have altered it from a religion of submission to one God to a religion where
multiple gods are being worshipped. He is told that he will be the final messenger, and
that his message is to be directed to all of mankind including the Jews and Christians.
- The Jews and Christians claim that Muhammad (pbuh) is a liar, a lunatic, deceived by the
Devil, and a false prophet. They claim that he has just copied the Bible in order to write
his Qur'an. Just as many Jews refused to accept Jesus (pbuh) as a true messenger of God,
so too do many Jews and Christians refuse to believe Muhammad (pbuh).
- Muhammad (pbuh) passes away. The Trinitarians continue with their burning at the stake
any Christian who opposes the "Trinity" or openly speaks about the discrepancies
in the Bible. They launch campaigns of "inquiry" to cleanse the earth of all
remnants of believers in one (monotheistic) God. They slaughter the Jews at every
opportunity. The sentences of death by these inquisitions become so unbounded in their
nature that whole nations are sentenced to death. A single holy decree of the Trinitarian
church in 1568 would later condemn three million men women and children of the Netherlands
to the scaffold as heretics. In the end, over twelve million people were put to death
through the authority of the "Inquisitions."
- The Church loses its power to the scientists and is pushed into a dark corner. Without
the threat of death hanging over their heads, many Christian scholars begin to publish
countless books exhibiting detailed examples of contradicting verses and evidence of
modification and tampering with the text of the Bible. The ancient manuscripts of the
Christian society are studied in detail and slowly, the previous picture begins to come
together. Countless excuses are made by the Church and those who's livelihood and power
depend on these established beliefs. They now begin to give practically every single verse
of the Bible "abstract" meanings. They tell their flock to have blind faith.
They convince their flock that they can not understand the Bible without the
interpretation and holy inspiration of the Church. They tell their flock that Jesus (pbuh)
never means what he says and that every reference he makes to following the religion of
Moses (pbuh) is not meant to be taken "literally" but was meant by Jesus (pbuh)
to have "hidden" meanings totally in opposition to the obvious meanings. Only
they can tell you what these hidden meanings of Jesus (pbuh) were.
- Copies of the original Gospels of the apostles of Jesus (pbuh) begin to surface. They
are found, of all places, hidden away in the capital of Christianity, the Vatican itself.
These Gospels (Such as the "Gospel of Barnabas") confirm the teachings of the
Qur'an. Copies of these Gospels have a tendency to disappear mysteriously. They are labels
false Gospels and lies written by Muslims. Suddenly, in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls are
discovered. For close to forty five years, they are hoarded in Israel and hidden from the
masses. When they are finally forced out into the open, an amazing discovery is made. They
too confirm the Qur'an! They foretell the coming of not one but TWO
Messiahs. They claim that these two Messiahs will be announced by an eschatological
prophet. The dual prophesy is very clear and prevalent throughout the scrolls. The scrolls
claim that the first Messiah will be betrayed by one of his followers but will not be
forsaken by God to die, rather, the one who betrayed him shall be taken in his place. The
scrolls specifically state that no nail shall touch the Messiah. There is so much in the
Dead Sea Scrolls that parallels the teachings of the Qur'an, however, once again it is all
explained away with abstract meanings. We are told that the fact that the Jews who lived
100 years before Jesus (the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls) were expecting TWO Messiahs
does not mean that they were expecting two different Messiahs, but rather, they must
have been expecting a single Messiah with two different personalities. Thus, we are
told, Jesus (pbuh) is BOTH Messiahs. On the other hand, the Jews explain that both
prophesies refer to past or future occurrences and neither one could possibly refer
to Jesus (pbuh) or Muhammad (pbuh).
Muslims are told that when God created mankind, He gave them "The Choice."
They were told that they could either live their lives then die and fade out of the
picture, like the animals do. Or they could elect to be held accountable for their
actions. If they accepted the accountability, then the potential reward will be great. The
potential retribution would be equally great.
With mankind's acceptance of this accountability came their free will. God gave mankind
a free will to chose to either worship Him or to disobey Him. Out of God's infinite mercy,
He then assisted mankind with many factors in order to guide them to His true path and the
ultimate reward. Firstly, He sent the messengers. In this manner, no matter how much
mankind tried to corrupt His religion, it would always be available to those who searched
Secondly, He supplied mankind with minds. He gave them these minds in order to be able
to distinguish between right and wrong using their intellect. If they see someone
worshipping fire, and they see that the fire can not hear their prayers nor answer their
calls, then no matter how much these fire-worshippers "spititualize" their
worship and tell them of the great miracles the fire has worked for them and how it has
answered their prayers, and how it "loves" them, their intellect will refuse to
believe these concoctions.
Finally, God gave mankind an inborn sense called in Arabic "Fitrah"
(instinct). This "Fitrah" is the small voice inside each one of us which tells
us "this doesn't feel right." When we pick up a gun for the first time in order
to kill someone, we have to fight mightily in order to overcome our "Fitrah"
which tells us that killing is wrong. In a similar manner, all mankind is born
automatically knowing that "God is one." They must really fight themselves for a
long time and be continually persuaded by those who are around them to believe otherwise.
This is how they end up worshipping fire, stones, statues, multiple gods, and other
things. It is forced upon them in spite of their "Fitrah" as they grow up.
This book goes back to the arguments of the original apostles. We will start with the
"Trinity" and work our way backwards through history. We will see that there is
absolutely no basis whatsoever for the "Trinity" in the Bible. Once the
"Trinity" has been disproved we will see how the rest of these fabricated
beliefs will unravel one by one till we return to the original teaching of Jesus (pbuh).
All of this will be done in chapter one. After that, it will be demonstrated how Muhammad
(pbuh) was indeed prophesied by both Jesus (pbuh) and the previous prophets, as claimed in
the Qur'an over 1400 years ago. I pray that you will find this information illuminating.

Really Say". The page was downloaded from http://www.islaam.com/,
