JESUS ONLY FOR THE JEWS
There can also be a mistaken perception amongst many individuals, particularly Africans that solely the-Christians (white-people) find out about God and different nations knew nothing, as an alternative they-had to attend for white-missionaries to come back with their Bible and educate them about God.This is completely mistaken as a result of lengthy earlier than white individuals got here to South Africa, people-knew about God and the proof of that’s the-fact that God Almighty is thought by some-names in all African tribes. And every tribe is aware of Him by some identify which does not-depict him as a God Who has companions. He is always-depicted as a Supreme and most-powerful being. And the Qur’an says: “And there never was a people, without a-Warner having lived among them (in the past).”
(Qur’an chapter 35 Verse 24)
God despatched Prophets to each tribe-on earth and that Prophet-was despatched to show the message-of God solely to the precise tribe he was despatched. So the final of such Prophets is Jesus Christ-peace be upon him, the son of Mary. He was not despatched to all nation of the earth.
Once the chance arose for-Jesus to say he got here for the-whole world in entrance of Pilate-when he was requested: “Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, “Are-you the King of the Jews?’ Yes, it is as you say,’ Jesus replied.” (Matthew chapter 27 verse 11). Here Jesus squandered one other golden alternative in entrance of the governor when he-should have-said, “Yes I am not the king of the Jews only but of the whole world.”Unfortunately for the-Christians he didn’t declare to be the king of the world as they wish-him to have been. But he stated he’s the king of the Jews. On high of all that, it was written-on his cross, above his head(This is in response to Christians,we Muslims don’t consider that Jesus-died and even went to the cross,as an alternative it was another person in his stead who was crucified and died and buried and many others)
“THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE!JEWS.” (Matthew-chapter 27 verse 37) The entire world isn’t talked about right here nor mankind.
Even from his delivery it was known-that he would be the king of-the Jews not of the world.The Magi of the East testified: “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?”(Matthew 2:2)
Another factor worthy mentioning-here on this whole-thing about crucifixion of Jesus is-the declare that he got here to-die for the sins of the world:Every the place Jesus was taken and-gave solutions after his arrest within the backyard of Gethsemane, no the place he claimed to have-come to die for the sins of the world. And if he actually got here for that, then he was an-unwilling sacrifice. But when and the way was-he intending to do that if he was not be-betrayed by Judas Iscariot eventually? Because it took the satan in Judas Iscariot to have Jesus-crucified for the sins of the Christians, (John 13:27), however they do not say a phrase of thanks-to these two (Judas and the Devil) who helped them with the “blood of the lamb which-takes away the sins of man.”
All we see is the annual-celebration of the Good Friday everywhere in the world. If the Friday-in which Jesus died is good-then what occurred to him-in Golgotha is sweet, which means-also he who orchestrated it, did good. If God signed a-contract with Jesus to come back and-save the world together with his blood-then the sacrifice who in-this case is Jesus needed to be caught-and killed some day for the sins of the world. Why the one who made this come through-is cursed, as an alternative of being thanked? Christians have confirmed to be very ungrateful in this-regard to Judas. One doesn’t should be stuffed with the Holy Spirit to see that Jesus was-unwilling to die for the world. If you learn the Gospels you will see that that Jesus was-unhappy about Judas Iscariot handing him over to be sacrificed for the world. Listen to-Jesus when he tells his disciples: i inform you the reality, one among you goes to betray me.” (John-chapter 13 verse 21). In the Gospel of Luke which is-where this coming to die for the-sins of the world is derived-from, we learn: “The Son of man will go because it has been decreed, but-woe to that man who betrays him.”(Luke chapter 22 verse 22)
Why woe to Judas Iscariot when he-was making what he got here for to happen? In the-Gospel of Matthew it reads: “The Son of Man will go simply as it’s written about him. But woe to-that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would-be higher for him if he had not been born.”
(Matthew chapter 26 verse 24)
These are the phrases of an happy-man when he was supposed-to have been in his highest-point of happiness as a result of the contract between him-and his Father of redeeming the-sinners together with his personal blood was to happen, Why was he sad now, was he afraid?In which method did he suppose he was-going to die for his individuals?The reality is: there is no such thing as a such-thing as one individual dying for the ineguities of others. TheRighteous God can by no means kill-His righteous Servant Jesus within the place of the evil ones, by no means.
In The Holy Qur’an He tells us that:
“Every soul draws the meed of its-acts on none but itself: no bearer of burdens can-bear the burden of another. Your goal in the end is towards Allih: He will tell you-the truth of the things wherin you disputed.” (Holy Qur’an 6:164)
This is in settlement with that-which was spoken by Prophet-Ezekiel: “For every living soul-belongs to me, the father as well as the son – both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one-who will die.” (Ezekiel 18 verse 4)
In different phrases if individuals commitsins it isn’t Jesus who can be punished, slightly it will-be themselves who must die for what they’ve carried out, not Jesus, Peace be upon-him.
Leaving the crucifixion alone this-brings us to the truth that All-the Prophets of God who-were despatched previous to Muhammad, could Allah bless him and grant him peace, have been despatched to-their nations or tribes-only and Prophet Jesus is one among such Prophets. Jesus on whom be-peace, was not despatched to the entire world, as we’re made to-believe, however Muhammad was.And we will see this in each the Bible and the Qur’an and within the traditions of the Holy-Prophet, Muhammad, could Allah bless him and grant him peace.
The Christians condemn people-who don’t need to take-Jesus Christ as their personal-saviour as a result of they consider that Jesus got here for the-whole of mankind. And subsequently,you, not accepting Jesus, no salvation for you.
But we discover within the historical past of Jesus-that on the very starting of-his mission he denied that-he got here for the entire world. He-demonstrated this even by his-selection of his disciples,amongst whom was the-Satanic Peter(Jesus turned and stated to Peter,“Out of my sight, Satan! You are a stumbling-block to me: you do not have-in mind the things of God, but the things of men.” (Matthew 16:23)
Judas Iscariot, the traitor and the doubting Thomas,all of whom have been Israelites. Other nations had no representatives in any respect in Jesus’ cabinet-but solely the twelve tribes of the home of Israel.
(Israel means twelve tribes of Israel-and these tribes come from the twelve sons of Jacob who was latter-called Israel (Genesis 32 verse 28) however now the Israelites are known as Jews)
Jesus didn’t solely present this by his-selection of his disciples, he expressed it out in-words and deeds. You say, “How?” We say within the e book of Matthew chapter 10 verse 5-we discover the next report:
“These twelve Jesus sent out with-the following instructions: Do-not go to any Gentile territory-or any Samaritan towns. Instead you are to go to the lost sheep of the people of-Israel. ‘” (Matthew chapter 10 verse 5)
Who is an Israelite? An Israelite is-a one who is a descendent of Jacob. We in South-Africa are usually not the descendants of Jacob and we are able to by no means be, by no matter stretch of our-imaginations. I’m conscious that black individuals who comply with Rastafarianism take into account themselves to be coming from Israel. In different phrases they’re Israelites. This might be as a
results of hallucination andimaginations from the extreme use of marijuana which-makes them suppose to be what they aren’t. Only some individuals in Ethiopia could make that-claim, others have no-right, they’re merely forgers-and it’s mistaken for an individual to-forcefully declare to be coming from the road of another-man who isn’t from his lineage.
One Christian good friend of mine was-preaching his Christ to me, making an attempt to win me for his lord-and saviour, he stated, “Listen my dear friend, accept Christ as your Lord and personal-saviour.” I informed him that I have already got a Saviour and-this Saviour of mine is sufficient, I-am not in want of any-more saviours. He stated, “Yes-but Jesus is more worthy of your-worship because whatever-you ask in his name he will give you.” As if lever complained-to him of not getting what I pray for from my Lord, Allah. I stated, “Really? I’d like to-believe you, but Jesus could not answer the prayers that were made to him even when he-was still walking this earth, how much more to me who is down in South Africa, right at-the end of the world? You are-preaching Jesus to me who-prohibited his disciples to-preach to non-Jews and the-Samaritans, his neighbours,the Samaritans who could have-been speaking a-language closer to his, How will he talk to me who speaks a language-which is far different than his? My friend seemed to have been not making sense of what-I was getting at. I carried on-and said, “Jesus would not-listen to a Canaanite woman on-the basis that she was not an-Israelite, will he then listen and-answer me, a Xhosa who has-no relationship with the-Israelites, from South Africa-when he did not answer the person-who was in front of him and while the one who was asking him a favour was also-looking at him? Am I not in a more disadvantaged situation than her, because I do not-even see him and Jam not sure if he sees me too? Let us read this together”: “Leaving-that place, Jesus-withdrew to the region of Tyre, and Sidon. A Canaanite-woman from that vicinity-came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly-from demonpossession.”Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him,Send her away, for she Keeps crying out after us.” He answered, “I Was despatched solely to the lost-sheep of the individuals of Israel…”
(Matthew 15 verse 21)
When my good friend learn this verse, I-could see it was for the primary time-he was setting eyes on-it, he by no means learn it earlier than. He saved ranging from the start as if he was not believing-what he was studying. He then informed me that he would go residence to search out out the which means of-the above verse from-his pastor after which inform me the next day. I stated, “Fine”. The-following day he stated his pastor informed him that I cannot-understand that verse until I used to be-baptised within the identify of Jesus and obtained the Holy Spirit.
I stated, “Incredible isn’t it! Do you-want to tell me that in that church of yours you are-baptized with different Holy Spirits, are the pastors baptized by one and non pastors with-another?” He answered, “No we are baptized by one and the same Spirit…” I interjected,“But why the Holy Spirit in you could no explain the meaning of this verse?” I continued,“Come on my friend, you-either possess different types-of this Holy Spirit or you are just-imagining yourselves to possess one while you have none. By the way, I knew your-pastor would make it as if the verse-contains somewhat a hidden meaning while it is so-clear. The Holy Spirit is their usual shell they always get into when they cannot explain-the contradictions that are abounding in their religion. The-reality is: Jesus came for the-Jews, Allah says it in the Qur’an, Jesus says it in the Gospel of Matthew, Muhammad-says it, we believe it, and you Christians deny it.”
The Qur’an bears testimony to this-in the next phrases: “And (We appointed Jesus)an Apostle to the Children of Israel, (with this message):
And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], ‘Indeed I’ve come to you with an indication out of your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] just like the type of a hen, then I breathe into it and it turns into a hen by permission of Allāh. And I treatment the blind [from birth] and the leper, and I give life to the useless – by permission of Allāh. And I inform you of what you eat and what you retailer in your homes. Indeed in that could be a signal for you, in case you are believers
(Qur’an chapter 3 Verse 49)
THE UNIVERSAL PROPHET.
The Prophet of Islam however, from the very onset, was despatched to the entire of-mankind, The Qur’an says it, he says it, the historical past about him says it and we affirm it, He-did not wait to be rejected earlier than he may settle for us we individuals who weren’t of his race.-In the next Verse of the Holy ,Qur’an, Allah, Glory be to Him, declares:
“And We haven’t despatched you besides comprehensively[Literally, “inclusively, without exception.”] to mankind as a bringer of fine tidings and a warner. But the general public have no idea.”
(Qur’an 34 Verse 28)
And once more the Holy Prophet-Muhammad, could Allah-bless him and grant him peace, is-commanded to proclaim:
Say, [O Muḥammad], “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allāh to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death.” So consider in Allāh and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allāh and His phrases, and comply with him that you could be be guided
(Quran chapter 7 Verse 158)
The message of the Ouran is the-message to the world, not simply to aspecific race as it-is in-the case with Moses and Jesus however to all individuals:
So the place are you going?[In your denial of the Qur’ān and in your accusations against the Prophet (ﷺ) . The meaning is essentially “Surely, you have strayed far from Allāh’s path]
It isn’t besides a reminder to the worlds
For whoever wills amongst you to take a proper course
(Quran 81 Verse 26-28)
FROM THE MAN’S MOUTH
We take what Jesus and Muhammad stated about-themselves, we aren’t speaking about-dreams and visions that have been later reported about them after they have been lengthy gone from-this world. What the individual says about himself carries extra weight than what individuals say-about him.
Narrated Anas bin Milik, could Allah-be happy with him that: “While we were sitting-with the Prophet in the mosgue, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel-kneel down in the mosgue, tied its foreleg and then said: “Who among you is-Muhammad?” At that point the Prophet was sitting amongst us (his companions)leaning on his arm. We replied, “This white man reclining on his arm.” The man then-addressed him, “O Son of “Abdul Muttalib.” The Prophet stated, “I am here to answer-your questions.” The man stated to the Prophet, “I want to ask you something and will-be hard in guestioning. So do not get angry.” The Prophet stated, “Ask whatever you-want.” The man stated, “I ask you by your Lord, and the Lord of-those who came before-you, HAS ALLAH SENT YOU AS AN APOSTLE TO ALL THE MANKIND?” The-Prophet replied, “By Allah, YES.” The man additional stated, “I ask you by Allah. Has-Allah ordered-you to offer five prayers in a day and night?”He replied, “By Allah,Yes.” The man additional stated, “I ask you by Allah, Has Allah ordered you to obserye fasts during this month of the year (i.e. Ramadan)?” He replied, By Allah, Yes.” The-man additional stated, “I ask you by Allah, Has Allah ordered you to take Zakdh from our-rich people and distribute it among our poor people?”The Prophet replied, “By Allah-Yes.” There upon that man stated, “I believe in all that with which you have been sent,and I have been sent by my people as a messenger, and I am Dimam bin Tha’laba from-the brothers of Bani Sa’d bin Bakr.” (Bukhari Vol 1, hadith 63, page54-55)
OTHER NATIONS INVITED
When Muhammad, could Allah bless-him and grant him peace, was requested whether or not he was-sent to all mankind he stated, “Yes”. And we hear in his biography that he invited all the-neighbouring nations to his faith earlier than his demise. He despatched messengers to Africa,Rome and different locations. As-a end result, king Negus of Ethiopia-embraced Islam and became-the first king within the whole-world to just accept Islam. There are letters that he despatched to different-places to individuals who weren’t Arabs. And in his biography (seerah) it’s recorded that-many chiefs from the encompassing areas got here to embrace Islam from his noble hand. But-Jesus, on whom be-peace and blessings of Allah, stated he’s despatched to the misplaced sheep of the-people of Israel solely. If phrases carry any which means, the phrase “only” means nobody else.
Until Jesus left this world no-person who isn’t an Israelite ever embraced his religion-directly or not directly from him. He despatched no messengers to Africa. We are conscious of the-report that he as soon as preached to the Samaritans the place: “Many of the Samaritans in that town-believed in Jesus beause the girl had stated… “John 4 verse 39).
But even these Samaritans who-believed in him may have-been Israelites who lived in-the land of the Samaritans-because Jews have been scattered far and wide from long-ago, furthermore that-woman says when she argues with him: It was Our ancestor Jacob-who gave us this effectively, he and his sons and his flocks all drank from it. (John 4 verse 12)
We should do not forget that Jacob-who in response to Genesis-32 verse 28 was then named-Israel, is the daddy of the-Israelites, it’s him to whom-this lady was referring as their-ancestor. Therefore these-Samaritans have been Israelites. If that lady and people individuals who-believed in Jesus have been not-Israelites that will imply that-Jesus contradicted himself then-because he stated to Matthew 10:5: “Do not go to any Gentile-territory or any Samaritan towns .Instead, you are to-go to the-lost sheep of the people of Israel.” “Again in Matthew 15:24 he said(I was sent only to the lost sheep of the people of Israel…”
The disciples and the apostles have been additionally not within the non Israelites particularly the-Africans. Also St Paul, the true founding father of Christianity, by no means set his foot on the continent-of Africa to preach-his ‘salvation”. Read about all his travels and all his letters which are-the essential a part of the New Testament, they’re all addressed to his church buildings in Rome,Corinth, Galatia, Ephesus, Philippi, Colosse, Thessalonica, and to his Greek friends-Timothy, Titus and-Philemon however not a single one-to the Africans. Even Phillip whom-they at all times quote about coming to Africa, (Acts chapter 8 verse 26-31). He met an-African who was a black Jew from Ethiopia not simply any African as within the true sense of-the phrase African. And-they didn’t meet in Africa but-in Jerusalem. So Phillip was a Jew-and the African was aJew, No massive deal in any respect.
But the Holy Prophet, Muhammad,could Allah bless him and grant him peace, had too-many disciples who’re known as “As-hab” and so they got here from completely different nationalities, to-name just some: Abu Bakr, was an Arab, Salman was a Persian, Abdullah bin Salaam-was a Jew, Suhaib Arrumi was an individual who got here from Rome or Greece as a few of us-say, and Bilaal ibn Rabah was-an African. These 5 I’ve-mentioned have been a few of the-closest to him. This backed his-claim that he got here for all-people. And in the entire world-there is not any faith that speaks so express in opposition to racism as the faith of Islam.
White People introduced Christianity-from Europe along-with racism. And they practised-this racism of theirs from the 12 months 1652 and finally-gave it up partially in 1994. I say-partially as a result of even in the-year 2003 we learn within the Argus-newspaper of an incident-where a colored woman-was kicked out of the church in Parow NG Kerk denomination,the identical NG Kerk-that in 1986 issued an announcement that “Islam is a false religion”. The-Afrikaans speaking-Christians wouldn’t surrender their racial discrimination completely-even after the brand new dispensation, why? as a result of there-is no clear steerage from their-Scripture. Instead extra emphasis is laid on who slept with whom and gave delivery to-whom. Islam from the start, simply didn’t have a room for racism. The Qur’an speaks-unambiguously about this:
O mankind, certainly We have created you from female and male and made you peoples and tribes that you could be know each other. Indeed, probably the most noble of you within the sight of Allāh is probably the most righteous[Literally, “he who has the most taqwā,” i.e., consciousness and fear of Allāh, piety and righteousness] of you. Indeed, Allāh is Knowing and Aware.
(Qur’ an 49:13)
Of all of the common religions I’ve ever come throughout, it is just Islam that offers with the-racial downside head on. For instance when the Arab conquerors had despatched a deputation of-their ablest males to debate phrases of give up of the capital of Egypt, headed by a Negro(Black man) known as Ubadah because the ablest of all of them. The Christian Archbishop Cyrus exclaimed: “Take away that black man! I can have no discussion with him.”To the astonishment of the-sacred bishop, he was informed that-this man was commissioned by-General Amr, that the Muslims held Negroes and white males in egual respect judging a-man by his character and never by his color. Well, if the Negro should lead, he must-speak gently’, ordered the prelate, in order to not frighten his white-auditors.”
The black chief answered: “There-are a thousand blacks, as black as myself,amongst our companions. I and they would be ready to meet and fight a-hundred enemies together. We live only to fight for God, and to follow-His will. We care naught for wealth, so-long as we have the wherewithal-to stay our hunger and to clothe our bodies. This world is naught for us,the next world is all.”
(S.S Leedr, Veiled Mysteries of Egypt, London, 1912, pp. 332-335)
In this incident which S.S Leeder wrote about, we see Islam not solely accepting blacks or-Africans in its fold but additionally placing those that have been succesful amongst them in positions of-leadership. This can also be one proof that Prophet Muhammad, could Allah bless him and-grant him peace, was despatched to all mankind. He didn’t have a primary alternative after which when-that first alternative of his rejects him he turns to his second alternative.
“And of His indicators is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the variety of your languages and your colours. Indeed in which are indicators for these of data.”
ISLAM ALWAYS THE RELIGION OF OTHER PEOPLE
While Islam is the faith of All-the individuals on earth,surprisingly sufficient individuals of-different locations give it to some individuals, for instance, in Germany it is called the-religion of the-Turks, in England it’s regarded-as the faith of the Pakistanis, in-America it’s branded as the faith of the black individuals and in South Africa it’s looked-atas cither the faith of the Indians or the Malays. In-Kwazulu Natal in the identical South-Africa, black individuals consult with Islam as the faith of “Amakula’ (Kules).
If that is Satan who mislead the-people of the world into hating and rejecting their faith,
Islam, as many people do, then he-succeeded. Did he not vow:
[Iblees] stated, “My Lord, as a result of You have put me in error, I’ll certainly make [disobedience] enticing to them [i.e., mankind] on earth, and I’ll mislead all of them, besides your servants amongst them, honest and-purified by your grace.” (Holy Qur’an 15 Verse 39-40)
Clearly the vast majority of us in South-Africa and the world over is sadly been-put in the-wrong, besides the honest servants of Allah who’re purified by His-grace (Muslims).
