Jesus a Prophet of Islam

Jesus the Messiah in Islam, in Christianity & in Reality

Christians and Muslims have differed for centuries over the nature and status of Jesus Christ. Both religions revere him and both believe him to be of virgin birth. Both religions claim to know his true nature and purpose. Muslims believe that Christian leaders of old altered the scriptures in order to redefine the status of this noble and virtuous Prophet of Almighty God. In fact, eminent Christian theologians readily admit that the Bible has been altered throughout the ages, so in that respect there is no disagreement. The renowned Biblical scholar from the USA, Dr. Bart D. Ehrman, formerly the president of the Southeast Region of the Society of Biblical Read more ...

The three categories of Tawheed, defined in the Quran

In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful, may His Salaah and Salaam be upon His final Messenger, and upon all his family members and companions, and those who follow his way, to proceed... Tawheed has three categories understood directly from Allaah’s Book. This division of tawheed is not from someone’s opinion, nor is it merely a traditional way to explain tawheed. It is a division that is taken directly from Allaah’s Book. The first category is Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah, which means "to single out Allaah in understanding His Actions," like His creating, providing, bringing of life and death, and keeping order in all affairs.

7 Fundamental Questions Regarding Islam

Question 1. What is Islam? Islam is an Arabic term that means: "To submit oneself to Almighty God by worshipping him alone, to yield in obedience to Him, and to free oneself from idolatry and those who worship other than Almighty God". Unlike the names used for other religions, the term Islam is not an attachment to any human being, time or location. For example, Buddhism was named after it's founder Gautama Buddha; Judaism refers to one of the sons of the Biblical patriarch Jacob (Israel), and Christianity is a reference to Jesus Christ. The term Islam on the other hand is a connection to the submission and worship of the one true Lord and Creator of Read more ...

It does not view man as a gear in a machine as does communism, nor does it suppress man's natural needs and bar him from all his desires, as is the case with Read more ...

Man’s Sense of Sinfulness and Purification of Soul

Every human being is a unique creation containing some angelic, devilish and even animal-like characteristics. His angelic qualities are predominant when he sincerely worships God and establishes a close relationship with Him. Such a man is like the angels, who are depicted in the Quran as follows, "who do not disobey God in whatever He has commanded them, but (always) do what they are commanded to do." [At-Tahrim 66:6] But if a human being turns his back on or shows contempt for his Creator, or worships more than one God. He will fall victim to negative and harmful influences. When such a man gets angry he acts like a wild man, his sole aim being to Read more ...

Dignity, not Charity

One day, a man from Madinah approached the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) for help, and the Prophet asked whether he had any possessions in his house. He (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) asked the man to bring the cloth and bowl which he owned, then sold them to one of his companions for two dirhams. The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) told the man to spend one dirham on food for his family, and use the other to buy an axe – then he instructed him to “go and gather firewood, I do not want to see you for a fortnight.” By gathering wood and selling it, the man made ten dirhams, which he used to buy food and clothes for his family Read more ...

My Lord is Rich (Free of all wants), Bountiful."" [Quran, Surah al-Naml, 27:40] "As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me." But when He tries him, by straitening Read more ...
