Muslims and Christians

One may ask, if both Muslims and Christians love and respect Jesus (pbuh), where exactly is the parting of ways? The major difference between Islam and Christianity is the Christians’ insistence on the supposed divinity of Christ (pbuh). A study of the Christian scriptures reveals that Jesus (pbuh) never claimed divinity. In fact there is not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus (pbuh) himself says, "I am God" or where he says, "worship me". In fact the Bible contains statements attributed to Jesus (pbuh) in which he preached quite the contrary. The following statements in the Bible are attributed to Jesus Christ (pbuh):

(i) "My Father is greater than I."
[The Bible, John 14:28]

(ii) "My Father is greater than all."
[The Bible, John 10:29]

(iii) "…I cast out devils by the Spirit of God…."
[The Bible, Mathew 12:28]

(iv) "…I with the finger of God cast out devils…."
[The Bible, Luke 11:20]

(v) "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."
[The Bible, John 5:30]

I) Position of Jesus (pbuh) in Islam:
(i)Islam is the only non-Christian faith, which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus (pbuh). No Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus (pbuh).

(ii) We believe that he was one of the mightiest Messengers of Allah (swt).

(iii) We believe that he was born miraculously, without any male intervention, which many modern day Christians do not believe.

(iv) We believe he was the Messiah translated Christ (pbuh).

(v) We believe that he gave life to the dead with God’s permission.
(iv) We believe that he healed those born blind, and the lepers with God’s permission. 

II) Concept of God in Christianity:
1. Jesus Christ (pbuh) never claimed Divinity
One may ask, if both Muslims and Christians love and respect Jesus (pbuh), where exactly is the parting of ways? The major difference between Islam and Christianity is the Christians’ insistence on the supposed divinity of Christ (pbuh). A study of the Christian scriptures reveals that Jesus (pbuh) never claimed divinity. In fact there is not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus (pbuh) himself says, "I am God" or where he says, "worship me". In fact the Bible contains statements attributed to Jesus (pbuh) in which he preached quite the contrary. The following statements in the Bible are attributed to Jesus Christ (pbuh):
(i) "My Father is greater than I."
[The Bible, John 14:28]

(ii) "My Father is greater than all."
[The Bible, John 10:29]

(iii) "…I cast out devils by the Spirit of God…."
[The Bible, Mathew 12:28]

(iv) "…I with the finger of God cast out devils…."
[The Bible, Luke 11:20]

(v) "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."
[The Bible, John 5:30]
2. The Mission of Jesus Christ (pbuh) – to Fulfill the Law
Jesus (pbuh) never claimed divinity for himself. He clearly announced the nature of his mission. Jesus (pbuh) was sent by God to confirm the previous Judaic law. This is clearly evident in the following statements attributed to Jesus (pbuh) in the Gospel of Mathew:

"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

"Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

"For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven."
[The Bible, Mathew 5:17-20]   
3. God Sent Jesus' (pbuh)

The Bible mentions the prophetic nature of Jesus (pbuh) mission in the following verses:

(i)"… and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me."
[The Bible, John 14:24]

(ii)"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent."
[The Bible, John 17:3]

4. Jesus Refuted even the Remotest Suggestion of his Divinity

Consider the following incident mentioned in the Bible:

"And behold, one came and said unto him, ‘Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?’

And he said unto him, ‘Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.’ "
[The Bible, Mathew 19:16-17]
Jesus (pbuh) did not say that to have the eternal life of paradise, man should believe in him as Almighty God or worship him as God, or believe that Jesus (pbuh) would die for his sins. On the contrary he said that the path to salvation was through keeping the commandments. It is indeed striking to note the difference between the words of Jesus Christ (pbuh) and the Christian dogma of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus (pbuh).
5. Jesus (pbuh) of Nazareth – a Man Approved of God    
The following statement from the Bible supports the Islamic belief that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet of God.
"Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know."
[The Bible, Acts 2:22]

6. The First Commandment is that God is One   
The Bible does not support the Christian belief in trinity at all. One of the scribes once asked Jesus (pbuh) as to which was the first commandment of all, to which Jesus (pbuh) merely repeated what Moses (pbuh) had said earlier:
"Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adonai Ikhad."

This is a Hebrew quotation, which means:

"Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord."
[The Bible, Mark 12:29]
It is striking that the basic teachings of the Church such as Trinity and vicarious atonement find no mention in the Bible. In fact, various verses of the Bible point to Jesus’ (pbuh) actual mission, which was to fulfill the law revealed to Prophet Moses (pbuh). Indeed Jesus (pbuh) rejected any suggestions that attributed divinity to him, and explained his miracles as the power of the One True God.
Jesus (pbuh) thus reiterated the message of monotheism that was given by all earlier prophets of Almighty God.

NOTE: All quotations of the Bible are taken from the King James Version.
III) Concept of God in Old Testament:
1. God is One

The following verse from the book of Deuteronomy contains an exhortation from Moses (pbuh):

"Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adna Ikhad".
It is a Hebrew quotation which means:
"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord"
[The Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4]

2.  Unity of God in the Book of Isaiah

The following verses are from the Book of Isaiah:

(i) "I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour."
[The Bible, Isaiah 43:11]

(ii) "I am Lord, and there is none else, there is no God besides me."
[The Bible, Isaiah 45:5]

(iii) "I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me."
[The Bible, Isaiah 46:9]

3. Old Testament condemns idol worship

(i) Old Testament condemns idol worship in the following verses:

"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:"

"Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God."
[The Bible, Exodus 20:3-5]

(ii) A similar message is repeated in the book of Deuteronomy:

"Thou shalt have none other gods before me."

"Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that in the earth beneath, or that is in the water beneath the earth."

"Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God."
[The Bible, Deuteronomy 5:7-9]

Introduction to Islam

Islam is a Semitic religion, which has over one billion adherents all over the world. Islam means "submission to the will of God". Muslims accept the Qur’an, as the word of God revealed to His last and final prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon him). Islam states that Allah sent messengers and prophets throughout the ages with the message of Unity of God and accountability in the Hereafter. Islam thus makes it an article of faith to believe in all the earlier prophets, starting with Adam, and continuing with Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, John the Baptist and Jesus amongst many others (may peace be on them all).


The Most Concise Definition of God

"Say: He is Allah,
The One and Only.
"Allah, the Eternal, Absolute.
"He begets not, nor is He begotten.
And there is none like unto Him."
                         [Al-Qur’an 112:1-4]

Surah Ikhlas (Chapter 112) of the Glorious Qur’an, is the touchstone of theology. ‘Theo’ in Greek means God and ‘logy’ means study. Thus Theology means study of God and to Muslims this four line definition of Almighty God serves as the touchstone of the study of God. Any candidate to divinity must be subjected to this ‘acid test’. Since the attributes of Allah given in this chapter are unique, false gods and pretenders to divinity can be easily dismissed using these verses.

By what name do we call God?

The Muslims prefer calling the Supreme Creator, Allah, instead of by the English word ‘God’. The Arabic word, ‘Allah’, is pure and unique, unlike the English word ‘God’, which can be played around with.

If you add ‘s’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Gods’, that is the plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Goddess’ that is a female God. There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you add the word ‘father’ to ‘God’ it becomes ‘God-father’. God-father means someone who is a guardian. There is no word like ‘Allah-Abba’ or ‘Allah-father’. If you add the word ‘mother’ to ‘God’, it becomes ‘God-mother’. There is nothing like ‘Allah-Ammi’, or ‘Allah-mother’ in Islam. Allah is a unique word. If you prefix tin before the word God, it becomes tin-God i.e., fake God. Allah is a unique word, which does not conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played around with. Therefore the Muslims prefer using the Arabic word ‘Allah’ for the Almighty. Sometimes, however, while speaking to the non-Muslims we may have to use the inappropriate word God, for Allah. Since the intended audience of this article is general in nature, consisting of both Muslims as well as non-Muslims, I have used the word God instead of Allah in several places in this article.

God does not become a human being:
 God does not take human form:    
Some may argue that God does not become a human being but only takes a human form. If God only takes a human form but does not become a human being, He should not possess any human qualities. We know that all the ‘God-men’, have human qualities and failings. They have all the human needs such as the need to eat, sleep, etc.

The worship of God in human form is therefore a logical fallacy and should be abhorred in all its forms and manifestations.

That is the reason why the Qur’an speaks against all forms of anthropomorphism. The Glorious Qur’an says in the following verse:

"There is nothing whatever like unto Him."  [Al-Qur'an 42:11]

Philosophy Of Anthropomorphism

Many religions at some point believe, directly or indirectly, in the philosophy of anthropomorphism i.e. God becoming a human. Their contention is that Almighty God is so pure and holy that He is unaware of the hardships, shortcomings and feelings of human beings. In order to set the rules for human beings, He came down to earth as a human. This deceptive logic has fooled countless millions through the ages. Let us now analyze this argument and see if it stands to reason.

The Creator prepares the instruction manual

Suppose I manufacture a video cassette recorder (VCR). Do I have to become a VCR to know what is good or what is bad for the VCR? What do I do? I write an instruction manual: "In order to watch a video cassette, insert the cassette and press the play button. In order to stop, press the stop button. If you want to fast forward press the FF button. Do not drop it from a height or it will get damaged. Do not immerse it in water or it will get spoilt". I write an instruction manual that lists the various do’s and don’ts for the machine.
Holy Qur’an is the instruction manual for the human being:
Similarly, our Lord and Creator Allah (swt) need not take human form to know what is good or bad for the human being. He chooses to reveal the instruction manual. The last and final instruction manual of the human beings is the Glorious Qur’an. The ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ for the human beings are mentioned in the Qur’an.
If you allow me to compare human beings with machines, I would say humans are more complicated than the most complex machines in the world. Even the most advanced computers, which are extremely complex, are pale in comparison to the myriad physical, psychological, genetic and social factors that affect individual and collective human life.
The more advanced the machine, greater is the need for its instruction manual. By the same logic, don’t human beings require an instruction manual by which to govern their own lives?

Allah chooses Messengers:

Allah (swt) need not come down personally for giving the instruction manual. He chooses a man amongst men to deliver the message and communicates with him at a higher level through the medium of revelations. Such chosen men are called messengers and prophets of God.
Some people are ‘blind’ and ‘deaf’:
Despite the absurdity of the philosophy of anthropomorphism, followers of many religions believe in and preach it to others. Is it not an insult to human intelligence and to the Creator who gave us this intelligence? Such people are truly ‘deaf’ and ‘blind’ despite the faculty of hearing and sight given to them by Allah. The Qur’an says:
"Deaf, dumb, and blind,
They will not return (to the path)."     [Al-Qur'an 2:18]

The Bible gives a similar message in the Gospel of Matthew:

"Seeing they see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand."    [The Bible, Matthew 13:13]

A similar message is also given in the Hindu Scriptures in the Rigveda.

"There maybe someone who sees the words and yet indeed does not see them; may be another one who hears these words but indeed does not hear them." 1
                  [Rigveda 10:71:4]
All these scriptures are telling their readers that though the things are made so clear yet many people divert away from the truth.
Unity of God
Some polytheists argue by saying that the existence of more than one God is not illogical. Let us point out to them that if there were more than one God, they would dispute with one another, each god trying to fulfill his will against the will of the other gods. This can be seen in the mythology of the polytheistic and pantheistic religions. If a ‘God’ is defeated or unable to defeat the others, he is surely not the one true God. Also popular among polytheistic religions is the idea of many Gods, each having different responsibilities. Each one would be responsible for a part of man’s existence e.g. a Sun-God, a Rain-God, etc. This indicates that one ‘God’ is incompetent of certain acts and moreover he is also ignorant of the other Gods’ powers, duties, functions and responsibilities. There cannot be an ignorant and incapable God. If there were more than one God it would surely lead to confusion, disorder, chaos and destruction in the universe. But the universe is in complete harmony. The Glorious Qur’an says:
"If there were, in the heavens
And the earth, other gods
Besides Allah, there would
Have been confusion in both!
But glory to Allah,
The Lord of the Throne:
(High is He) above
What they attribute to Him!"
              [Al-Qur’an 21:22]

If there were more than one God, they would have taken away what they created. The Qur’an says:

"No son did Allah beget,
Nor is there any god
Along with Him: (if there were
Many gods), behold, each god
Would have taken away
What he had created,
And some would have
Lorded it over others!
Glory to Allah! (He is free)
From the (sort of) things
They attribute to Him!"
[Al-Qur’an 23:91]

Thus the existence of one True, Unique, Supreme, Almighty God, is the only logical concept of God.

Hukum Ulama Membisu Dari Kemungkaran

Soalan: Yang saya kasihi Dr Asri, maaf, saya tidak puas hati dengan sebahagian yang bergelar ulama dalam masyarakat kita. Ramai yang mendapat jawatan dan gaji yang besar, tapi membiarkan berbagai kemungkaran berlaku. Mereka tidak berani dengan pihak yang melantik dan bayar gaji mereka. Bagi saya, mereka tidak buat tugas. Mereka memilih-milih isu untuk bercakap. Maaf kalau saya kata jaga periuk nasi. Apakah kerana mereka ulama, mereka tetap tinggi di sisi Allah? Sedangkan Nabi bersabda: “Orang yang diam dari bercakap benar adalah syaitan bisu”. Harap Dr Asri dapat ulas.

Fauzan, Ipoh Perak.

Jawapan Dr MAZA:

Terima kasih atas soalan dan keprihatinan saudara terhadap barah yang menimpa umat Islam dalam masyarakat. Hakikatnya, bukan sahaja golongan ulama, tetapi setiap individu muslim wajib menegakkan kebenaran dan mencegah kemungkaran. Namun, bagi golongan ulama mereka mempunyai amanah yang lebih berat. Ini kerana ilmu yang ada pada mereka sepatutnya menjadikan mereka lebih ke hadapan dalam membela agama Allah. Soalan saudara saya ulas seperti berikut:

1. Ungkapan “Orang yang diam dari bercakap benar adalah syaitan bisu” yang saudara sebut, bukanlah hadis yang sah. Walaupun ia terkenal, namun tiada riwayat yang sahih, ataupun daif dalam mana-mana kitab hadis yang meriwayatkannya. Maka, berhati-hati dalam menyandarkan sesuatu kepada Rasulullah S.A.W.

2. Allah Maha Adil. Islam tidak pernah menyatakan manusia dinilai berdasarkan gelaran mereka. Sebaliknya, berdasarkan tanggungjawab yang ditunaikan. Demikianlah juga para ulama. Bahkan Al-Quran tidak pernah menyamakan sesiapa pun dengan anjing melainkan ulama yang gilakan dunia sehingga membelakangkan ilmu agamanya. Firman Allah: (maksudnya)

“Dan bacakanlah kepada mereka (Wahai Muhammad), khabar berita seorang yang Kami beri kepadanya (pengetahuan mengenai) ayat-ayat Kami. Kemudian dia menjadikan dirinya terkeluar dari mematuhinya, lalu dia diikuti oleh syaitan, maka dia dari kalangan yang sesat. Dan kalau Kami kehendaki nescaya Kami angkat kedudukannya dengan (berpegang) ayat-ayat itu, tetapi dia bermati-mati cenderung kepada dunia dan menurut hawa nafsunya; maka bandingannya adalah seperti anjing, jika engkau menghalaunya, ia menghulurkan lidahnya, dan jika Engkau membiarkannya, ia juga menghulurkan lidahnya. Demikianlah bandingan orang-orang yang mendustakan ayat-ayat kami. Maka ceritakanlah kisah-kisah itu supaya mereka berfikir (Surah al-’Araf: 175-176).

Maka ulama tiada nilainya jika menyembunyikan kebenaran. Bahkan Allah samakan mereka dengan anjing!

3. Seseorang yang memenuhi poket dengan gaji yang besar tetapi menyembunyikan atau mendiamkan diri dari menegakkan kebenaran sedangkan dia mampu, itu adalah dosa yang amat besar. Allah menyifatkan habuan dunia yang diperolehi itu sekadar memenuhi perut dengan neraka. Firman Allah: (maksudnya)

“Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang menyembunyikan apa-apa keterangan Kitab yang telah diturunkan oleh Allah, dan membeli dengannya harga yang sedikit, mereka itu tidak mengisi dalam perut mereka selain daripada api neraka, dan Allah tidak akan berkata-kata kepada mereka pada hari kiamat, dan ia tidak membersihkan mereka (dari dosa), dan mereka pula akan beroleh azab yang perit”. (Surah al-Baqarah: ayat 174).

4. Beberapa buku sejarah menyebut satu kisah yang menarik untuk direnungi. Pada zaman pemerintahan Khalifah Yazid bin ‘Abd al-Malik (meninggal 105H), gabenor Iraq ketika itu ialah ‘Umar bin Hubairah. Gabenor tersebut telah memanggil dua orang tokoh ilmuwan besar umat ketika itu; ‘Amir al-Sya’bi dan al-Hasan al-Basri. Beliau bertanya mereka berdua mengenali arahan-arahan Khalifah Yazid bin ‘Abdul Malik yang datang kepadanya. Ada antaranya ada yang menyanggahi kebenaran.

Kata ‘Umar bin Hubairah: “Jika aku taatkan Khalifah, aku menderhakai Allah, jika aku mentaati Allah aku akan menderhakai Khalifah”. Apa pendapat kamu?”.

Jawab al-Sya’bi: “Engkau hanya menjalankan tugas, dosa ditanggung oleh Khalifah”.

Tanya ‘Umar bin Hubairah kepada al-Hasan al-Basri: “Apa pendapatmu pula?”.

Jawab al-Hasan: “Wahai Gabenor! Engkau telah pun mendengar pendapat al-Sya’bi tadi”.

Kata gabenor: “Aku mahu pendapatmu”.

Kata al-Hasan al-Basri:

“Wahai ‘Umar bin Hubairah, akan datang kepadamu malaikat Allah yang bengis lagi tidak menderhakai perintah Allah, dia akan mengeluarkan engkau dari istanamu yang luas ke kuburmu yang sempit. Jika engkau bertakwa kepada Allah, Dia boleh melindungimu daripada tindakan (Khalifah) Yazid bin ‘Abdul Malik, adapun Yazid bin ‘Abdul Malik tidak dapat melindungimu dari pada tindakan Allah. Tidak ada ketaatan kepada makhluk dalam menderhakai Pencipta (Allah). Wahai ‘Umar bin Hubairah! Engkau jika bersama Allah dalam ketaatan kepadaNya, Dia memeliharamu daripada bahaya Yazid bin ‘Abdul Malik. Namun jika engkau bersama Yazid dalam menderhakai Allah maka Dia serahkan engkau kepada Yazid “. Lalu menangislah ‘Umar bin Hubairah. Ditanya al-Hasan mengapakah beliau melakukan demikian? Jawabnya: “Kerana perjanjian yang Allah meterai untuk para ulama berkaitan ilmu mereka –seperti firman Allah dalam Surah Ali ‘Imran 187-: (maksudnya): Dan (ingatlah) ketika Allah mengambil perjanjian dari mereka yang telah diberikan Kitab (iaitu): “Demi sesungguhnya! hendaklah kamu menerangkan isi Kitab itu kepada umat manusia, dan jangan sekali-kali kamu menyembunyikannya”. (lihat: al-Mizzi, Tahzib al-Kamal, 6/113, Al-Zahabi, Tarikh al-Islam, 2/333, Ibn Manzur, Mukhtasar Tarikh Dimasyq, 6/97).

5. Masyarakat Islam hendaklah diberikan kesedaran bahawa tujuan pengajian agama bukan untuk mendapat habuan dunia tetapi untuk menegakkan ajaran Allah dan rasulNya. Jika pelajar agama atau ibubapa yang menghantar anak mempelajari agama meletakkan dunia sebagai matlamat, maka ramailah ulama berkepentingan akan terus muncul dan rosaklah masyarakat. Justeru, Nabi s.a.w bersabda:

“Sesiapa yang mempelajari sesuatu ilmu yang sepatutnya dicari keredhaan Allah Azza wa Jalla dengannya, tetapi dia tidak mempelarinya kecuali untuk mendapatkan habuan dunia, maka dia tidak akan mendapat bau syurga pada hari kiamat. (Riwayat Abu Daud dan Ibn Majah. Al-Nawawi mensahihkannya dalam Riyadh al-Salihin).

6. Seorang tabi’in yang terkenal dengan soleh dan warak Salamah bin Dinar pernah berkata di hadapan Khalifah Sulaiman bin ‘Abdul Malik:

“Telah berlaku di mana para umarak (pemerintah) mencari ulama, lalu mengambil manfaat daripada mereka. Maka yang sedemikian kebaikan untuk kedua-dua pihak. Namun hari ini, ulama pula yang mencari umarak, lalu cenderung dan inginkan apa yang dimiliki oleh mereka. Lalu umarak menganggap: tentu apa yang ulama cari yang ada di tangan kita ini lebih baik daripada apa yang ada di tangan mereka”. (Ibn, ‘Asakir, Tarikh Dimasyq, 22/29).

Demikianlah, kita dapati sesetengah golongan agama boleh dijadikan dagangan politik. Puncanya, kerana menghina diri di hadapan orang berkuasa.

7. Dosa ulama yang menyembunyikan kebenaran, atau menyelewengkannya tidak dapat ditebus melainkan dengan menerangkan semula hakikat yang sebenar. Firman Allah: (maksudnya):

“Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang menyembunyikan apa yang telah Kami turunkan dari keterangan-keterangan dan petunjuk hidayah, sesudah Kami menerangkannya kepada manusia dalam Kitab (yang diturunkan), mereka itu dilaknat oleh Allah dan dilaknat oleh sekalian makhluk. Kecuali orang-orang yang bertaubat, dan memperbaiki (penyelewengan mereka) serta menerangkan (apa yang mereka sembunyikan); maka orang-orang itu, Aku terima taubat mereka, dan Akulah Yang Maha Penerima taubat, lagi Maha Mengasihani. (Surah al-Baqarah: ayat 159-160).

Marilah kita pohon perlindungan dengan Allah dari membelakangi agamaNya.
