Allah, the Almighty, says: "O People
of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah
aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than)
amessenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a
spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers.
Say not Trinity : desist: it will be better for you: for
Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above
having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on
earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."
Christ in Islam
A detailed description of Prophet Eesa; Jesus Christ (*PBUH) in Islam. This book discusses Jesus Christ's (PBUH) life, his miraculous birth and his status in Islam.
A Muslim is someone who submits to the will of God.
Some Christian Brothers are astounded, bewildered, and astonished to hear when we say that Prophet Jesus is mentioned twenty five times in the Qur'an, five times more than Prophet Muhammad.
The Qur'an portrays Jesus as God's mighty messenger and no Muslim's faith is complete unless he accepts Jesus as a Prophet of God.
What is remarkable about the life of Prophet Muhammad is that he came to clear the name of Prophet Jesus that he blasphemed against God by claiming a share in God's divinity. Prophet Muhammad hallowed Prophet Jesus as the messiah and as a devoted servant of God.
It was Prophet Muhammad who brought the good news that Prophet Jesus did not die on the cross as the Qur'an so affirmatively asserts. He cleared the name of Prophet Jesus that he allegedly betrayed his covenant to God as a prophet and divine messenger. He put the life of Prophet Jesus in clear perspective and bore witness that he was but a man commissioned by God to call humanity to God's way and was given special powers to help him accomplish his mission.
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat use to say: "The Christians out of their love for Prophet Jesus say that he is God or the son of God, and the Muslims out of their love and obedience to God say he is a mighty messenger of God".
Prophet Jesus was a great man and is unsurpassed in many ways, but you don't elevate a man or a Prophet by making him a God simply out of your love, respect and admiration for him.
Who has the good news right? Is Jesus as portrayed in the Qur'an, a devoted servant of God, the truth or what the Church teaches through its doctrine of the trinity, God the father, the son, and the holy ghost?
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat presents his evidence and comes to the conclusion that the fathers of the church have the good news badly misconstrued.
Author Biography: The world-renowned Muslim Scholar of Comparative Religion was born in the Surat district of India in 1918. Ahmed Hoosen Deedat had no recollection of his father until 1926. His father, a tailor by profession, had emigrated to South Africa shortly after the birth of Ahmed Deedat.
With no formal education and fighting off the extreme pangs of poverty, he went to South Africa in 1927 to be with his father. His farewell to his mother in India in 1927 was the last time he saw her alive for she passed away a few months later.
The most significant of these was in 1936 where he worked at a Muslim owned store near a Christian seminary on the Natal South Coast. The incessant insults of the trainee missionaries hurled against Islam during their brief visits to the store infused a stubborn flame of desire within the young man to counteract their false propaganda.
As fate would have it, Ahmed Deedat discovered by pure chance a book entitled Izharul-Haq, meaning, 'The Truth Revealed'. This book recorded the techniques and enormous success of the efforts of Muslims in India in turning the tables against Christian missionary harassment during the British subjugation and rule of India. In particular, the idea of holding debates had a profound effect on Ahmed Deedat.
Armed with this newly found zeal, Ahmed Deedat purchased his first Bible and began holding debates and discussions with the trainee missionaries. When they beat a hasty retreat in the face of his incisive counter arguments, he personally called on their teachers and even priests in the surrounding areas.
These successes spurred Ahmed Deedat in the direction of Da'wah. Not even his marriage, birth of children and a three-year sojourn to Pakistan after its independence dampened his enthusiasm or dulled his desire to defend Islam from the deceitful distortions of the Christian missionaries.
With missionary zeal to project the Truth and beauty of Islam. Ahmed Deedat immersed himself into a host of activities over the next three decades. He conducted classes on Bible studies and gave numerous lectures. He established the As-Salaam, an institute to train propagators of Islam. He, together with his family, almost single-handedly erected the buildings including the masjid, which is still a landmark today.
He was a founder member of the Islamic Propagation Center International (IPCI), Durban, and became its President. He has authored and published several books and distributed millions of copies free of charge. He has delivered thousands of lectures all over the world and successfully engaged prominent Christian Evangelists in public debates. Several thousand people have come into the fold of Islam as a result of these efforts.
In a fitting tribute to this monumental achievement, he was awarded the King Faisal International Award in 1986, a prestigious recognition of enormous value in the world of Islam.
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat developed a cerebral vascular accident resulting in the locked in syndrome about 6 years ago. He is currently at home being nursed by his wife. We request you to PRAY for his HEALTH.
