JESUS/ISA (pbuh), the Mercy of God:
A Plea for Sanity, a Plea for True Change
By Ma RG
(September 20th, 2001 AD/Rajab 02,
(Assalaamulaikum wa Rahmatulaahi wa
The tragedy of the recent week is still fresh in our minds (The
Attack on the World Trade Center NY), and all throughout the world people must deal with
the fear and uncertainty of the coming weeks. The stark reality is the specter of death
itself, and that anyone of us could have been one of those innocent victims on an
airplane, at the office, regardless of race, creed, or color, our children, even me.
My prayer as I write this article is for true reconciliation and
true understanding to be established between Muslims, Jews, and Christians for the future
days ahead. One can only hope that a paradigm transformation can be born out of this time
which will bring forth God/Allahs SWT mercy and loving compassion in a fresh way.
Peace be upon us as we seek sanity in the midst of insanity. Peace
be upon us as we seek to know better the One true God/Allah who is closer than the vein in
our neck. Peace be unto us as we seek to know the Unity of the Spirit in the bond of Peace
that passes all understanding and guards our hearts and minds.
God/Allah SWT desires that we seriously study these things, for He
has the authority to put us in Heaven or sentence us to Hell, based on His justice. Though
God/Allah SWT has inscribed the rule of Mercy as an attribute above all others being
called Ar Rahmanir Rahim (the Most Merciful and Compassionate One), so He has warned
us to watch and prepare at all times for the coming of death and the Kiamat (Day of
Judgment). All men are appointed to die once and then face the Day in which we all must
give an account to our Creator for the choices we have made or failed to make in our time
"Nay, Allah raised (rafaa) him up (Jesus/Isa,pbuh)
unto Himself; and Allah is exalted in Power, Wise.
"(Quran (Al Nisa) 4:158).
According to both Muslims and Christians, Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is His
"Sign unto men and a Mercy from us" Quran 19 Maryam 19:21,
"whose Name is the Messiah, illustrious in this world and in the
Hereafter." (Quran 3 Al Imran 45), for Jesus/Isa is the UnCreated Word of
an Apostle (Rasul) of Allah, and His Word (Kalimatuhu),
which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him (Ruhu minh)"
(Quran Al Nisa 4:171).
Why would Jesus/Isa (pbuh) alone be given by God/Allah SWT the title
of Messiah (al-Masih), over eleven times in the Quran? Why would Jesus/Isa (pbuh)
alone then be given the title of His Word (Kalimatuhu)?
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is further called "
a Word from Him
(Kalimatim min hus)" (Quran Ali Imran 3:45), and again "
Word from Allah (Kalimatim minallaahi)" (Quran Ali Imran 3:39).
(Jesus)Isa is Roh-ul-Lah (The Spirit of Allah),
Rasullah (The Messenger of Allah) and Kalimatullah (the Word of Allah)." (Anas bin
Malik hal: 72. Qs 4 An Nisaa 171).
As the Ahl al Kitab (People of the Book), Christians take every word
God says seriously, and they have no need to exaggerate the greatness of the Messiah, for
God/Allah SWT Himself lifts Jesus/Isa (pbuh) high above all other names!
The divine mission of Jesus/Isa (pbuh) has never ended, for
Jesus/Isa is the UnCreated Word, the everLiving Messiah and Rasul, living Today. The Day
of Judgment has been given into his hands alone by God/Allah SWT for ALL MANKIND!
When we pray, we ask God/Allah SWT, to "Show us the Straight
Path" (Quran 1 Al-Fatihah 6. Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is that Straight Path to be
followed! "And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment):
Therefore have NO DOUBT about the (Hour) but follow ye Me: This is the Straight
Way." (Quran 43 Az Zukhrut 61).
In Surah 19:19, Jesus/Isa (pbuh) alone is called a Sinless One in
all the Quran!
He is called "holy" (zakiy-pure, sinless) son (Ghulam
(youth or young man). Some Muslim scholars would argue that "zakiy ghulam" means
that all infants born are sinless, hence attempting to resolve the problem of a "once
in all history" birth of the Sinless Jesus, but this cannot hold up to a careful
look. The word used here "Ghulam" meaning youth or young man is similar to that
used in Surah 18:74 (a slain youth by Al Khidr), v.80 (rebellious youth), vs.82 (two
orphans youth attaining their age of full strength to claim hidden treasure under the
wall). To avoid confusion, another word "Tifl" meaning "little children or
infants" as in Surah 22:5, 40:67 should have been used in Surah 19:19 if only those
below the age of accountability is intended!
My friend, use the mind God/Allah SWT has given you! Why was
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) protected from Satan? (Surah 3:36), and "Blessed (Mubarakan)
wheresoever he be." (Surah 19:31)? Only Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is able to be in the
Presence of God (Surah 4:158) after his ascension without being pulverized like the
mountain when God appeared to Moses (Surah 7:143).
Truly, Moses (pbuh) pointed forward to Jesus/Isa as the UnCreated
Word of God, the Messiah, the Sinless One, the everLiving One Today. Jesus/Isa (pbuh) was
born of a virgin, "The Word became flesh" (Gospel/Injil John 1:14), and dwelt on
earth as a once in all history Miracle working Man? Why?
Just as Moses (pbuh) pointed forward to Jesus/Isa
(pbuh) in History, Muhammad (pbuh) pointed back in History to the "Center
of All History and Judgment on All Mankind", for Muhammad was supposed to be only
a Warner (Nazir), to Seal the Truth that Jesus/Isa is the Messiah, the UnCreated Word of
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) was sent by God/Allah SWT not just to the Jewish
people, but rather to the Entire World in every Age of Mankind, for he is the Judge!
"All authority has been given to Me (Jesus/Isa) in heaven
and on the earth, GO, therefore and make disciples of ALL NATIONS (ethnos/tribes and
peoples including Arabs), baptizing them in the name of the Father (God/Allah SWT), the
Son (the Kalimatuhu,UnCreated Word of God born Sinless of a virgin), and the Holy Spirit
(Ruhuminh), teaching them to observe ALL THINGS whatever I have commanded you, and behold,
I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, even to the end of the age." (Gospel/Injil, Matthew 28: 18-20).
God/Allahs Word is ETERNAL! He has an Eternal Plan for the
that in the ages to come, He might show the exceeding riches of His
grace in His kindness towards us through Jesus/Isa, the Messiah,
for God, who is
rich in MERCY, made us alive with the Messiah, even when we were dead in sin, it is by
grace you have been saved and God/Allah raised us up with the Messiah, and seated us with
him in Heavenly Realms (present tense) in Jesus the Messiah." (Injil/Ephesians
Therefore, since Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is more than just a Prophet, but
rather the Eternal UnCreated Word of God/Allah SWT, his Position and Authority is Eternal
as well! In the Taruat/Old Testament, the book of Isaiah (pbuh), we find the prophecy of
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) written hundreds of years before both the Injil and the Quran
"Therefore, the Lord Himself shall give you a Sign, BEHOLD, A
VIRGIN SHALL CONCEIVE AND BEAR A SON, AND SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL (meaning God/Allah
SWT with us). (Taruat/ Isaiah 7:14). Then in the following chapters it speaks of this son
saying, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government
shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, The Mighty
God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, of the increase of his government and
peace there shall be NO END!" (Taruat/ Isaiah 9:6,7).
Think of the implications of what the Word of God/Allah says, the
Government that Jesus/Isa (pbuh) MUST increase and never, never, never, never, End.
In the Quran, are you asked to OBEY any other than God/Allah
SWT? To the One we OBEY, then He is Lord! In the Quran, Jesus/Isa (pbuh) says, "(I
have come to you) To attest the Law (Taruat) which was before me, and to make lawful to
you part of what was (before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from the
Lord, SO FEAR GOD/ALLAH and OBEY ME!" (Surah 3:50).
In Truth, who is the Last Prophet? If Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is the
Eternal UnCreated Word of God, living Forever speaking for God/Allah, Judging in the
Judgment upon ALL MANKIND, both Christian and Muslim, chronologically, who is Last?
You must have the courage to answer this between you and God/Allah
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is not the forerunner preparing the way for Islam,
for he is the UnCreated Word of God, "Jesus Christ (the Messiah, Anointed One), is
the same yesterday, and today, and forever." (Injil/ Hebrews 13:8).
"And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: O Children of
Israel I am the Apostle of Allah (sent) to you confirming the Law (which came/Taraut/Old
Testament) before me, and giving glad tidings of an Apostle to come after me, whose name
shall be Ahmad" (Quran, Surah 61:6).
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) was talking to Israelites in the context of Surah
61:6 of the coming Rasul named Ahmad who will also be sent to the Israelites. There is NO
mention of the Ishmaelites, Arabs or Quraishites in Surah 61:6
.AN ISRAELITE RASUL IS
ANTICIPATED! The name Ahmad and not Muhammad was given. The meaning of both names
are different and also antithetical-Ahmad means "one who gives praise" and
Muhammad means "one who receives praise or praiseworthy"! According to Dr.
Muhammad Muhsin Khan and Dr. Muhammad Taqi ud Din Al-Hilali, The Noble Quran, pg.
790, "the second name of Muhammad and it (Ahmad) literally meaning "One who
praises Allah more than others."
Sahih al-Bukhari vol. 6, pg. 488 states Surah 61:6 is a variant
reading and the name "Ahmad or "Muhammad" was not stipulated but ONLY AN
UNNAMED PROPHET was given: "O Children of Israel, I am Gods Messenger to you
and I announce to you a prophet whose community will be the last community and by which
God will put the seal of the prophets and messengers".
This prophecy is apparently by the Muslim scholars own admission not
a clear Sign (Ayat) of God/Allah SWT. This is not consistent with the claim in Surah 2:1,
"This is the Book in its guidance, sure and without doubt, to those who fear
Therefore, who is Jesus/Isa (pbuh) speaking of in Surah 61:6?
Perhaps, the Apostle Paul! This Israelite terrorist of the Christians had a personal
revelation of Jesus, who commissioned him to take the everlasting Gospel to ALL NATIONS!
First, the Apostle Paul went to his fellow Jews, and then later was
directed to go to the unbelievers. Paul faithfully preached to all the Greek, Roman and
ARAB world! Yes, turn to the Injil, New Testament in Galatians 1: 13-17 and see!
"For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism,
how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. I was advancing in
Judaism beyond many Jews my own age and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my
fathers. But when God, who set me apart from birth and called me by his grace, was pleased
to reveal his Son in me that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not consult any
man, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went
immediately into ARABIA and later returned to Damascus."(Injil/ Galatians 1:13-17),
see also Injil/Acts 9:1-31, 21:40-22:1-21.
Paul the Apostle was fluent in Aramaic and was said to spend up to
12 years in Arabia teaching about Jesus/Isa (pbuh) and warning people to turn to God from
darkness, so its seems strange to see it said in the Quran of Muhammad (pbuh),
"To give warning to a people to whom No Warner (Nazir) had come
before thee." (Quran Surah 28:46 (32:3). Is it not true that there were many
Christians throughout the Middle East by the time of Muhammad (pbuh)?
Some may try to dismiss everything by saying the Injil (New
Testament), Zabur, (Psalms), and Taurat (Old Testament) are all corrupted by men, yet they
are truly Ignorant . The Quran teaches the Bible is the Word of God/Allah SWT and
can never be corrupted, changed or altered!
The Quran says, "And in their footsteps We sent Jesus,
the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel:
therein was Guidance, and Light and Confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a
Guidance and an admonition to those who fear God. Let the People of the Gospel judge by
what God hath revealed therein." (Surah 5:46-47).
"..No change can there be in the Words of God." (Surah
there is None that can alter the Words (and decrees) of
God." (Surah 6:34).
Baizawi says on this verse, "There is no altering His sayings,
and there is no breach of His promises." Therefore, many stand quilty before
God/Allah on the Day of Judgment for rejecting the truth of their own Books, and will be
labeled as without religion (kafirs). Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is the Eternally Living Prophet,
yes, much more than a Prophet, the Eternal Word of God/Allah, therefore, his Word is
UnChanging and Authoritative yesterday, today and forever speaking to every dispute
God/Allahs SWT divine answers!
"Such (was/is) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of
Truth, about which they (vainly) dispute." (Quran 19 Maryam 34).
"Laa mahdiyan illa Isabnu Maryam" "There is no
Imam Mahdi (Fully Guided Intercessor) except Jesus the Son of Mary." (Hadiths Ibnu
Do you honor Jesus/Isa (pbuh) as "God/Allahs Word"
(Quran 4 An Nisa 171), and "a Sign for all Peoples"? (Quran 21 Al
Aanbiyaa 91). Do you wish to honor this one who is "nearest to Allah" both now
and in the hereafter? (Quran 3 Aali Imram 45). God/Allah SWT is the Protector of His
Word and He will protect you as well if you trust in Him today through the name of
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name
under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." (Injil/ Acts 4:12).
First, do you believe? "And this is his command: to believe
in the name of his son, Jesus the Messiah(Christ), and to love one another as he commanded
us." (Injil/ I John 3:23-24) "Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in
"For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified,
and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Injil/ Romans 10:10).
The prayer of Muhammad (pbuh) before his death: "Oh God,
forgive me, have mercy upon me and contact me to the Most High Friend." (Hadiths
Shahih Bukari 1573). Then he lifted up his hand saying, "The Most High
Friend.", then his hand laid down and he passed away. (Bukari 1574).
Who is this Most High Friend, Muhammad (pbuh) called upon at his
death? "I am closer to Jesus the son of Mary in this earth and heaven."
(Hadiths Shahih Bukari 1501). Yes, the Most High Friend whom Muhammad called upon in
his last moments was Jesus/Isa (pbuh)!
I plead with you today in a world that has lost much of its sanity
to consider this:
It is not an accident that your eyes have found this article,
God/Allah has directed you to look at this today!
"Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts, as
you did in the rebellion." (Injil/ Hebrews 3:15).
Secondly, I plead with you by the Mercy of God, to repent and change
the direction you have been going, admit the wrong thinking and doing of your life, fear
God/Allah SWT, and Obey Jesus/Isa (pbuh)!
"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble, Submit
yourselves then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and
He will come near to you. Wash your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts, you
double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to
gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up." (Injil/ James
Real change of heart leads to clear change of actions. Our motive
for doing what is right cannot be just based on good works, its deeper, our motive is
"So Peace is on me the day I
(Jesus) was born, the day that I die, and the day I shall be raised up to Life
(again)" (Quran 19 Maryam 33).
"Behold! God said: "O Jesus! Will take thee and raise
thee to myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make
those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of
" (Quran 3 Aali Imraan 55).
"That they (unbelieving Jews) said (in boast) "We killed
(qatal)( al Masih Isa) Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of Allah," but they
killed him not (wa maa qataluuhu), nor crucified him (wa maa salabuuhu), but so it was to
appear to them (wa laakin shubbiha lahum), and those who differ therein are full of doubts
(Shakk) with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for a surety-They
killed him not (wa maa qataluuhu yaqiina)." (Quran Surah 4:157).
Thirdly, Jesus/Isa (pbuh) came to earth as a sinless child for One
Divine Purpose, to fulfill prophecy and SUBMIT TO GOD willingly His life as a Sacrifice
for the sin of Mankind Once and for all time, so that all Mankind can be brought into a
true relationship with God/Allah SWT as a "Sign to ALL PEOPLES".
Though the Jews might have mockingly boasted that they killed
Jesus/Isa (pbuh), in truth, they did not, for they only instigated the Romans to
actually crucify him. The Roman soldiers were experts at the torture of
crucifying people. If they failed to execute the person, especially the right person, the
penalty was that they would die for the failure! They always finished the job by thrusting
a spear through the victims side to pierce their heart. Secular historians verify that
there was no controversy about the death of Jesus/Isa (pbuh). (Injil/ see John 18 &
Matthew 27:64). (Josephus/Tacitus) His enemies admit his death. Will you?
The Ignorant have veiled the truth of the death/burial and
resurrection of Jesus/Isa (pbuh), by classifying it as a mutashahihat verse, i.e. "a
verse in which it is something known only to Allah". The Injil/Gospel (New Testament)
is very clear, and "cannot be changed" (Surah 10:65). No wonder, Muhammad
had been told to consult the Christians whenever he was in doubt. "If thou
(Muhammad) wert in doubt (shakk) as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who
have been reading the Book (Bible) from before thee." (Surah 10:94).
Study the Taraut (Old Testament) prophecies of the death of
Jesus/Isa (pbuh), in Isaiah 50:4-10, 52:13-54:12, 61:1-11, the Zabur, Psalms 22:1-31,
34:20, 69:21, Zechariah 12:10-13:1, and compare them to the events in the Gospel/Injil/
(New Testament). These detailed prophecies were made hundreds of years before their
fulfillment, and the fact that they were fulfilled in detail shows God/Allahs SWT
miraculous Sign for All Peoples!
The clear Signs of the Most High Friend (Jesus/Isa (pbuh), reveal
the Siratul Mustaqiim (Straight Way) clearly for all mankind to follow.
"To Jesus, son of Mary we gave Clear Signs and strengthened
Him with the Holy Spirit
Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out
clear from error
" (Quran 2 Al Baqarah 253, 256).
Perhaps in religion, we have followed the traditional ways of man
more than the miraculous ways of God/Allah SWT. Those who reject other ways so as to obey
the clear signs of Jesus/Isa (pbuh) are following the gracious guidance of God/Allah SWT.
They are always prepared for death and the Kiamat. They have deep assurance of entering
Heaven because they take refuge in the pure Holiness of the Most High Friend. Do you wish
to have this assurance? Do you wish to be free from guilt because you have decided not to
rely on human guidance, or to depend on the limited goodness of your own deeds?
believes in Allah has grasped the most
trustworthy Hand-hold that never breaks." (Quran 2 Al Baqarah 256).
This famous Ayat ul Kursi is clear when we look at ayat 253: We have
security when we believe in the Clear Signs of Isa (Jesus) (pbuh) and the Prophets:
As Roh-ul-Lah, Jesus/Isa (pbuh) is the untainted UnCreated Word,
without any form of impurity. Only in his holiness can mankind take His Handhold and make
contact with God/Allah SWT, the Holy One, Spirit to spirit. As Roh-ul-Lah, He touches the
sick with compassion and the healing power of God/Allah SWT.
In order to create true Love, God/Allah SWT created true Choice, one
cannot have one without the other. Yet, once you choose to risk all and submit to Him
through the divine Way He provided by Jesus/Isa (pbuh) death, burial, and resurrection. He
promises to Raise You to the NEW Life free from sins torment, with power to overcome any
test by His strengthening Spirit, and His faithful promise to Hold you Most securely
forever as you walk faithfully with Him!
"My sheep listen to my (Jesus/Isa) voice; I know them and they
follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them
out of my hand. My Father, who has given then to me, is greater than all; no one can
snatch them out of my Fathers hand. I and my Father are one." (Injil/ John
Through life and death, we can have this lasting Peace if we believe
in the miracle (muzzizah) Sign of God/Allah SWT Taala about life and death.
In Surah Al Imran, ayat 55, Allah SWT, the Owner of the Day of
Judgment, took back (the life of) Jesus/Isa, raised him back to Himself.
God/Allah SWT clears Isa (pbuh) of all charges, and rewards highly
those who have Faith in the Korban of Isa (pbuh). Inshah Allah, When we take refuge
in the Korban sacrifice of Jesus/Isa (pbuh), God/Allah SWT clears us and miraculously
raises us to Heavenly places with Him. Al Hamduillah!
Can you cry out in the same way as others to our Most High Friend?
Pray now saying:
"Allahumma" (O God/Allah),
"Astafirullah" (forgive my sins) I reject all other ways
to save myself and I trust Your Korban Sign in Jesus/Isa (pbuh) to save me on the
Kiamat. I receive only your Way. Thank you for your precious Mercy to me. Amin
Jesus/Isa (pbuh) predicted the complete destruction of the Jewish
Temple in AD 70, forever setting aside true Old Testament Judaism (only Zionism exists
In the Injil/Acts 2:11, when the Gospel of Salvation in Jesus/Isa
(pbuh) was preached miraculously in the native tongue of every nation present, (including
Arabs), they believed as you do now, and asked the question, what shall we do?
The Apostle Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized every one
of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive
the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are
far off---for all whom the Lord our God will call. With many other words he warned them;
and he pleaded with them, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation."
(Injil/ Acts 2:38-40). It says the same day 3000 people accepted the message and were
baptized and many of them probably became the first Arab Christians.
God/Allah can save anyone, even the worst terrorist like Saul,
became the Apostle Paul, saying, "Even though I was once a blasphemer and a
persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and
I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners Christ Jesus/Isa
(pbuh) might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on
him and receive eternal life."(Injil/ I Timothy 2:12-17).
God/Allah is calling All to Repentance, Muslims, Christians, Jews,
and UnBelievers (especially who think they rule the world from the international Oil
Company Offices) to a Worldwide Repentance and Reconciliation through Jesus/Isa (pbuh)!
Yes, God/Allah SWT is calling forth His Judgment upon all those who
say they believe in the One True God, and then live like He doesnt exist! He desires
His faithful to honor Him now more than ever. Why? He wishes the UNBELIEVER to see
the Prince of Peace rules in the hearts of men today, and that His glory can cover and
change the earth just as the oceans He made.
I plead for Sanity in a World Insane, I plead for True Change in a
I plead for you to seek and turn to the Prince of Peace, Jesus/Isa
