What Muslims Believe - Jesus Christ and Allah
Being guided to explain the following in context for everyone.
First of all I will quote - then give insight in my commentary.
"1st. We muslim believe Jesus to one of the five creatures, that have the highest position in the side of the creator(i.e أُوْلُوا الْعَزْمِ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ meaning apostles of inflexible purposeand Allah says
33:7 And remember We took from the prophets their covenant: As (We did) from thee(referring to Muhammad pbuh): from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus the son of Mary: We took from them a solemn covenant:
2nd. We believe him to be Word of God, spirit God and also Messenger of God.
4:171 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 an apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. 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.
Being a prophet/massenger of Allah is the highest rank and favour of Allah on his creatures."
This is very important to say because there are people saying muslims are anti-christ when they are not. Every muslim loves Jesus Christ and it has been said by muslims, that they cannot be called a muslim unless the love Jesus Christ - so I have been told.
Every muslim beleives Jesus Christ was born miraculously. Every muslim holds Mary, Holy Mother of Christ as the most important woman that ever lived to be chosen by God to be the Mother of Christ. If we focus on the truth and the positive - we will get there:)
In context I want to go over 4:171 by looking more closely and examining the message that has been given to the muslims.
4:171 O People of the Book!
This is speaking of all believers.
'Commit no excesses in your religion:'
No religous extremism - no forcing people your way.
'Nor say of Allah aught but the truth.'
Speak nothing but the truth about God Almighty
'Christ Jesus the son of Mary'
Jesus Christ who was born from Mary,
'was an apostle of Allah'
Was a messenger of God Almighty
'and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary'
And God Almighty's Word was given as a gift to Mary'
'and a spirit proceeding from Him'
and a Holy Spirit that came from Him;
'so believe in Allah and His apostles'
therefore beleive in God Almighty and His Messengers
'Say not "Trinity".....'
you are advised not to say 'Trinity
'desist: it will be better for you'
discontinue this: it will be better for you
'for Allah is one Allah'
for God Almighty is one God Almighty (no one can deny)
'Glory be to Him'
Give praise to Him
'(far exalted is He) above having a son'
(far placed in a high status is He) more than having his son'
'To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth.'
Everything and everyone in the universe belongs to God Almighty
'And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.'
God Almighty is in command of ordering everything.
A few more insights that are relevant for understanding.
Muslims can say 'Muhammad is our messenger'. Muhammad was instructed so every muslim knows of the Almighty Power of God. More importantly to totally trust God and submit to Him.
This part of my article is especially written for muslims.
If you look above at what is said 'in context' about the Trinity and read carefully to understand. There is no a denial of the Trinity. There is a very important message to say not to discuss this because it will be better for you. Safer for you.
God Already forsaw all the arguments that have taken place. For this reason, in the divine plan, clarity is given the people again.
At one time, masses of people who followed Christ were massacred. These people came from the
early Orthodox church and they refused to give up their faith.
There have been religious extremists who do not know God and do not submit to God. What this means is to trust and leave God to handle everything and He will.
What you may not realise is, when you place complete faith in God and ask for His guidance and protection, you are placing your faith in this highest focus. There are people who are placing their faith in man and being mislead by man. One lesson to learn.
No man has ever walked the planet more powerful than God. Nothing is possible without God. All miracles are by God's Will.
If something is not meant to happen - it will not happen. Even in my own situation, as a Servant of God, it is for His divine purpose and I suffered. To clean up corruption and injustice in this world, there must be evidence of this by a CREDIBLE WITNESS and I am in the Eyes of God; specifically chosen to be for THIS purpose.
Once anyone has the experience of knowing there is a higher power who is Authority over everything and everyone, The Authority and Commander of the Universe, to give this up and change what was given before is to change to something else.
The Word of God is very precise. The information that I am given by divine guidance is specific and for a greater purpose. Being trusted to be guided in the right way, takes complete faith and submission to God. What you read here is related.
The Jewish people were given the Torah - not to change this. Every Word of God has meaning and with every letter there is a meaning too. For this reason, there is much that can be learned from the original Hebrew Texts, that I value too.
Orthodox Christians were given Christ 'in person' to share His teaching with the world. The understanding was for everyone to become spiritually enlightened.
Muslims were given Muhammad, who was said to be visited by Angel Gabriel. Muhammad was a living example to remind people that everyone has a guardian angel they can communicate with at any time. Guardian angels are messengers of God - given by God.
Stop the arguing that one religion is right and another is wrong.
Hindus were given understanding of the evolution of the Soul.
Buddhists have given Wisdom of the Soul - Soul consciousness.
Christ stayed in India. His Soul is fully awake even now.
Meridian points, energy and discipline of Mind, Astrology, The Laws of nature were given at different times. Spiritual healing and healing properties of plants too.
All Knowledge and there is an endless stream, comes from God.
Interpretation of knowledge comes from man.
If you seek truth and do not find it, keep seeking truth. Eventually you will come to the truth. And if you have not yet arrived at the truth, keep seeking truth! The truth has validation.
On a final note to bring just another observation to light. If you read over the text above you will see that the finer detail of what is written is very important. Sometimes, just to break up the sentance where there is punctuation, will be easier to analyse further and get to the root of understanding more of the message.
He is another way of saying Hashem - this refers to God Almighty.
He (Hei) is the 5th letter in the Hebrew alphabet. This is Hei.
The letter Hei represents God. When we read or write 'He' this is a way of saying God without actually saying the name of God. He, His and Him are written with capital 'H' to bring emphasis to HIM!
When muslims tell me 'that I am wrong' without reading, evidently they to not read to seek understanding. Evidently they are not seeking the truth. My page is sharing my journey; with insights, understanding, factual information and history. My efforts are to piece the bigger picture together and unite humanity in peace.
In All faiths there is One God. He teaches Peace to all men.
Contemplation is so much easier when being in peace and quiet.
God is precise to the finest detail. This needs to be understood in context. God decides, who will deliver HIS Truth to the people.
Peace, love and best wishes
