Faith is a substance of hopeful Prayer and powerful Dreams. Faith is not a blind leap into the dark; believing in something just for the sake of believing; or for the sake of being positively hopeful.

Hi friend pmespeak

I agree with you. Productive faith is neither a leap in the dark nor a blind-faith. It is the consistent and steadfast path/way of the Prophets Messengers of the Creator- God Allah YHWH who were rewarded by Him by His Word of Revelation. In fact these righteous persons were the cream of humanity whose constant search for truth and prayers did bore fruits. The future of humanity and peace indeed rests on following these persons with confidence. Such persons came in all the nations and the regions of the world. We see that if Judea and Arabian Peninsula were enlightened with the revelation of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad; the Persia was illuminated by Zoroaster and the Cyrus the Great; China was guided by Buddha, Confucius and India by Krishna and now lately by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908- the Promised Messiah, the Second Coming of Jesus and the Imam Mahdi.

We should be guided by all these truthful persons.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

Thanks

Why did not Christians of Muhammad’s time produce their books, real or forged, from which passages were supposedly copied in the Quran, thus dealing a severe blow to Islam?

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908, the Promised Messiah, the Second Comings says:

The fact is that only Divine revelation has the authority to
prove the truth or falsity of past scriptures. Any account
confirmed by Divine revelation has to be true, even
though some ignorant ones declare it otherwise. Similarly,
the account which Divine revelation rejects, has to be
false, even though some people declare it to be true.

To think that the Holy Quran is made up of such wellknown
accounts, tales, books or gospels, is the height of
ignorance and something to be ashamed of. Is there anything
wrong with a book of God being in agreement with
some past accounts? Many truths of the Vedas, which
were not even known at the time, are to be found in the
Holy Quran, but can we conclude from this that the Holy
Prophet(sa) had studied the Vedas?

The Gospels that have now become available—thanks to the
printing press— were not known to anyone in Arabia,
and the people of
that land were simply unlettered. If there happened to be
an odd Christian among them, he was not likely to know
much about his own religion.10* It is therefore despicable
to think that the Holy Prophet (sa) plagiarized from these
books. The Holy Prophet (sa) was unlettered and could not
even read Arabic, let alone Greek or Hebrew.

It is now
upon our opponents to produce any manuscript of that
time from which these accounts are supposed to have
been taken. If the Holy Quran contained material copied
from other sources, the Christians of Arabia, who were
bitter enemies of Islam, would at once have cried out that
it has been taken from their own accounts.

Remember, the Holy Quran *11* is the only scripture in the
world that proclaims itself to be a miracle. It forcefully asserts
that its prophecies and narratives are from the realm
of the unseen, it contains prophecies about the future down
to the Last Day, and that it is a miracle in respect of its eloquence
and beauty of expression.

It would have been easy
for the Christians of that time to produce the books from
which passages were supposedly copied in the Holy Quran,
thus dealing a severe blow to Islam. But now they only cry
over spilled milk. It is unthinkable that the Christians of
Arabia would have kept quiet despite being in possession
of books—whether genuine or forged—from which they
suspected the Holy Quran of having copied certain material.
Thus there can be no doubt that the Holy Quran is
totally composed of the revealed word of God, and that this
revelation was a great miracle, for, no one could produce
anything like it.

Foot Notes from the Author :

9 Christianity does not only allow the use of falsehood and imputation in
support of the faith, but considers this practice to be worthy of divine
reward. See the teachings of Saint Paul. [Author]
10 Reverend Pfander has admitted in his book, Mizan-ul-Haq, that the
Christians of Arabia were also like savages and were quite ignorant. [Author]
11 The Holy Quran claimed that it was a unique and miraculous book, and
it challenged anyone who considered it to be the word of man to come
forward and prove it, but no opponent took up the challenge. The Gospels,
on the other hand, were declared plagiarized by the Jews at that very time
[when they were written], nor have they ever claimed that man cannot
produce anything like them. Therefore, the Gospels may be suspected of
having been plagiarized, but not the Holy Quran, for it claims that no man
can ever produce such a book and the silence of the opponents has proved
the truth of this claim. [Author]
