Just One Message! – IslamHouse.com

Pre-reading questions:

Straight to the point

After the creation of Adam, just one original message has
been repeatedly delivered to mankind throughout the history of humanity.

Thus, to remind people about it and
bring them back on track, many prophets and messengers including Adam, Noah,
Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were sent by the only true God to
convey this message:

              SENT                             to convey:

——— Adam
                  God
is One

——— Noah
                   God
is One

——— Abraham             God is One

——— Moses
                  God
is One

——— Jesus                     God is One

——— Muhammad         God is One

1) To receive guidance from God and deliver
it to people.

2) To convey the message that God is
One.

3) To be role models to their people.

4) To instruct their people to fear God
and keep His commandments.

5) To teach their followers important
religious and moral tenets and worldly matters.

6) To guide those who deviated,
disobeyed God, or worshipped other gods or idols.

7) To tell people about their final destination
(the Last Day) and what leads to Paradise or Hellfire.

It is the same God who
created and sent those prophets and messengers. He is the Creator of all
humans, all animals, and all objects. It is this ONE TRUE GOD who
created the whole universe (including nature) and all it contains. He is the
Creator of life, death, and life after death.

The Oneness of this
true God, the Creator, is clearly evident and easily traceable in the holy
scriptures of the Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others.

Studying the concept of
God in the Bible and the Qur’an sincerely and objectively, a sincere seeker of
the truth would be able to discern the unique qualities belonging to the true
God only.

Some of the qualities that
distinguish this only true God from others who claim to be God are:

v This true God is Creator, not created.

v This true God is ONE, not
three or more! He has no partners nor equals.

v This one true God is invisible; no one
can see Him in this life. He is not physically manifested or incarnated in
other forms.

v This one true God is eternal; He does
not die or change.

v This one true God
is not in need of anyone like a mother, a wife, or a son; or anything like
food, drink, or help. But others are in need of Him.

v This one true God
is unique in His attributes; no one is like Him. No human or animal
descriptions can be attributed to Him.

We can
use these criteria and qualities (as well as other ones belonging to Him alone)
in examining and rejecting any claims of being God.

Now let me turn to discuss
the one message mentioned above and cite some of the Biblical and Qur’anic
verses confirming the Oneness of God.

But before that, I would
like to share with you this thought:

Some Christians might wonder, “It is
obvious that God is one. We believe in one God.

So, what is the point?”

However,  based  on  a
great deal of  reading   and   studying   materials  on

1- God the Father.

2- God the Son.

3- God the Holy
Spirit.

So, based on common sense
and simple logic, a sincere and honest seeker of the truth could reason:

v Is God ONE in THREE or THREE in ONE (1 in 3 or 3 in 1)?!

1. God the Father = the Creator.

2. God the Son = the Savior.

3. God the Holy Spirit= the Counselor.

By the way, if Jesus, God
the Son (or Son of God) is really God or part of the one God, doesn’t this
contradict what the Bible itself reports that no one can see God, nor hear His
voice? The Bible states:

v YOU HAVE NEVER
HEARD HIS VOICE NOR SEEN HIS FACE. (John 5:
37)

v NO ONE HAS EVER
SEEN HIM. AND NO ONE CAN SEE HIM.

(1 Timothy
6: 16)

v NO ONE CAN SEE
ME AND STAY ALIVE. (Exodus 33: 20)

Based
on these and other Biblical texts, I sincerely and honestly ask: “How can we
reconcile the dogma that Jesus is God and the Biblical testimony that no one
has ever seen God, nor heard His voice?”

Didn’t the Jews at his
time, his family, and his followers SEE Jesus (God the Son, as some
believe!)
and HEAR his voice?

®   Is there any secret or hidden purpose

concerning the truth about God?

In the Bible, the true God
emphatically testifies, “I
am the Lord, and there is no other god. I have not spoken in secret or kept my
purpose hidden… I am the Lord, and I speak the truth; I make known what is
right.”
(Isaiah 45: 19)

Now, let us take off on a
journey of seeking the truth about the one true God in the Bible and the
Qur’an.

At the end of this journey
and after your critical, sincere, honest, and thoughtful reading of this
booklet and particularly the verses cited below, I would like to know your
reactions or views.

Please read the following verses  CAREFULLY, CRITICALLY  And 
WITHOUT ANY PRECONCEPTIONS.

Ø Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one
Lord. (Deuteronomy 6: 4)

Ø Has not the One God made and sustained
for us the spirit of life?

     (Malachi 2: 15)

Ø You may know and believe Me and understand
that I am He. Before Me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after Me. I,
I am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior. (Isaiah 43: 10-11)

Ø I am the
first and I am the last; besides Me there is no god. Who is like Me? (Isaiah 44: 6)

Ø And there is
no other god besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none besides Me.
Turn to Me and be saved…To Me every knee shall bow. (Isaiah 45: 21-23)

THESE ARE
JUST SOME VERSES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT.

Ø  One came and said unto him, Good Master,
what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he (Jesus) said
unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God. (Matthew 19: 16-17,

        in King James Version)

Ø Now this is life eternal, that they know
you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

     (John 17: 3)

Ø Worship the
Lord your God, and serve Him only. (Matthew 4: 10)

Ø Hear O Israel:
The Lord our God is One Lord. (Mark
12: 29)

Ø For there is
one God and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1Timothy 2: 5)

 (NOT THREE!)

Ø Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the
Eternal, Absolute; He begets not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like
unto Him. (112: 1-4)

Ø There is no god but I; so worship Me. (21: 25)

Ø They disbelieve who say: Allah (God) is
one of three, for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their
word (of blasphemy), verily, a grievous chastisement will befall the
disbelievers among them. (5:
73)

Ø Can there be
another god besides Allah (God)? Nay, most of them know not. (27: 61)

Ø  Can there be
another god besides Allah (God)? High is Allah above what they associate with
Him.  (27: 63)

Ø  Can there be
another god besides Allah (God)? Say, ‘Bring forth your proof, if ye are
telling the truth!’

 (27: 64)

These verses as well as
hundreds of similar pieces of evidence in the Bible and the Qur’an confirm this
one, eternal message that the true God is only ONE. “Turn to me now and be saved, people all
over the world! I AM THE ONLY GOD THERE IS.”
(Isaiah 45: 22)

Not only does the Bible
affirm that God is only ONE, but it also reveals that the true God, the
Creator, is the only Savior. “Before Me no god was formed, nor shall there be any
after Me. I, I am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior.”
(Isaiah 43:10-11)

So, according to this
affirmation, all other supposed gods or deities like Jesus, the Holy Spirit,
Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Krishna, or Buddha are neither gods nor
manifestations of the ONE TRUE GOD.

It was because of such
false beliefs that after the Jews worshipped other gods, “the Lord’s anger burned against them.” (Numbers 25: 3) Likewise, Moses destroyed the golden
calf.

On the other hand, the
Essenes, an early Christian unitarian community, endured torture and
persecution because they refused to exchange Jesus’ monotheistic teachings for
the Pauline innovation of the trinity.

To sum up, all God’s
prophets including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were sent by
the same God, the Creator, to convey the same message:

And since those prophets
and messengers preached the same one message, their religion must be the
same one! So, what is the religion of those prophets and messengers?

Submission to the will of God is the essence of the
message of those prophets. This word ‘SUBMISSION’ means ‘ISLAM’
in Arabic.

The Qur’an does confirm
that ‘Islam’ is the true religion of all God’s prophets and messengers.
This Qur’anic fact is also traceable in the Bible itself! And this is what will be discussed in
the upcoming booklet, God willing!

Ultimately, to attain
salvation, we must receive and believe in the above-mentioned message willingly
and wholeheartedly. Nevertheless, doing this is not enough! We must also
believe in all God’s true prophets (including Prophet Muhammad) and
follow their true guidance and teachings. This is the gateway to a happy,
eternal life!

One more thing…

Those who are sincere, honest, serious,
objective, and open-minded in seeking the truth, and after thinking critically
about this one message, they may ask questions like:

®   So, what is the truth?

®   What can I do?

You CAN sincerely believe in your only true God (Allah), believe in His
last messenger, and utter the following:

I testify that there is no god worthy of
worship but the One true God (Allah) and that Muhammad is the messenger of God
(Allah).

If you decide to take this way; you can
contact your Muslim friend, the nearest Islamic center, or me (I will be very
happy to help)
.

Yes, you can do it!
