God sends a religion in one location and others have to accept it

April 14, 2013

Islam respects other revealed religions; but since the scriptures of other religions are not in the original form they were revealed on their messengers; so they need a fresh scripture (Revelation) that could rectify their mistakes; in whatever language it is revealed; in this sense Quran secures all revealed scriptures of the word whatever the religion and in whatever the locations they are.

There is no punishment to other nations if they did not receive the message of Quran; if it reaches them anyhow, which is in fact the message refreshed; and instead of accepting it they oppose it with enmity; then it is their fault because they deny the original message revealed on their own messenger originally.

Humans cannot punish anybody simply for not believing ; that will be decided by Allah in the hereafter with justice; He is the Master of the Day of Judgment.

Learning how to spot, admit and seek God for direction and removal of these obstacles in daily Life, IS THE ONLY path to a spiritual life and self- realization or God consciousness.

Paarsurrey says:

I agree with you there; and that has been expressed by the Creator God in the very first chapter of Quran. He has taught us the human beings, a perfect prayer to that effect. It is named Fatehah – the Opener of heart and soul for self realization, God consciousness and is the only path to spiritual life:

1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

[1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,

[1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,

[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.

[1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.

[1:6] Guide us in the right path —

[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

A clear prophecy in Buddhist faith of coming of Jesus in India

May 14, 2009

~The charge that the Buddha did not believe in God is a pure fabrication.
~The Buddha did not believe in Vedanta and in corporeal Gods of the Hindus.

The Promised Messiah 1835-1908says:

The story of Genesis as stated in books of the Buddhist faith has a great resemblance to the same story given in the Torah. Just as according to the Torah man is considered superior to woman, so, in the religion of the Buddha, a monk is considered superior to a nun. It may be observed, however, that the Buddha believed in the transmigration of souls, but his transmigration is not opposed to the teaching of the Gospels.

According to the Buddha, transmigration is of three kinds: (1) that the dying man’s actions and efforts necessitate the coming into being of another body; (2) the kind of transmigration which the Tibetans believe to be operative among the Lamas, i.e., some part of the spirit of some Buddha or Buddha Satwa transmigrates into the Lama for the time being; which means that his power, temper and spiritual qualities are transferred into such a Lama and that his spirit begins to animate the latter; (3) that in this very life man goes through different creations — there comes a time when he is, as it were, a bull; when he grows in greed and evil, he becomes a dog, the first existence dying out, giving rise to another corresponding to the quality of his actions; all these changes, however, take place in this very life. This creed is not opposed to the teaching of the gospels.

I have already stated that the Buddha also believes in the existence of the Devil, so he also believes in hell and heaven, in angels and in the Day of Judgment. The charge that the Buddha did not believe in God is a pure fabrication. The Buddha did not believe in Vedanta and in corporeal Gods of the Hindus. He criticises the Vedas a great deal. He does not believe in the existing Vedas. He regards them as corrupt and interpolated. The period during which he was a Hindu and a follower of the Vedas, he regards as the period of evil birth.

For example, he hints that for a time he was a monkey; again for a time, an elephant; then a deer, and a dog; four times a snake, and then a sparrow, then a frog; twice a fish, ten times a tiger, four times a fowl, twice a pig, and once a hare, and that at the time he was a hare he used to teach the monkeys, the jackals, the water-dogs; again, he says that he was a ghost; once, a woman, a dancer and the Devil. All these hints are meant to point to phases of life full of cowardice, of womanish behaviour, of impurity and savagery, of profligacy, gluttony, and superstition. It appears that in this way he points to the time when he was a follower of the Vedas, for, after abandoning the latter he gives no hint of any trace of an evil life still persisting in him. On the other hand, he then makes great claims; he said that he had become a manifestation of god and had attained Nirwana.

The Buddha also states that the man who goes from the world taking hellish actions with him is thrown into hell, sentinels of hell drag him towards the King of Hell, called Yamah, and the condemned one is then asked whether he had not seen the Five Messengers who had been sent to warn him: Childhood — Old Age — Disease — Being punished for one’s guilt in this very life, a proof of the punishment of the hereafter — Dead bodies which point to the destructibility of the universe. The condemned one replies that he had been a fool, he had not thought over any of these things. The Guardians of hell then drag him to the place of chastisement and fasten him with iron chains red-hot like fire. The Buddha, moreover, says that hell has several regions into which sinners of different categories would be cast. In short, all this teaching cries out loudly that the Buddhist religion is indebted to the personal influence of Jesus.
I do not, however, propose to go on with this discussion.

I close this section here, for when there is a clear prophecy, stated in books of the Buddhist faith, about the coming of Jesus to his country — a prophecy which no one can deny — when the parables and the moral teaching of the Gospels are to be found in books of the Buddhist faith compiled in Jesus’ time — both these considerations combined do not leave any doubt about the coming of Jesus to this country. The evidence, therefore, for which we had set out to make a search through Buddhistic records has been completely recovered — thanks to Almighty God.

Who rules on the Day of Judgment? Allah rules, not Jesus

March 1, 2009

Quotation from Quran:

[43:58] And when the son of Mary is mentioned as an instance, lo! thy people raise a clamour thereat;
[43:59] And they say, ‘Are our gods better, or he?’ They mention not this to thee but for the sake of disputation. Nay, but they are a contentious people.
[43:60] He was only Our servant on whom We bestowed Our favour, and We made him an example for the children of Israel.
[43:61] And if We so willed, We could make from among you angels in the earth to be successors therein.
[43:62] But verily, he was a sign of the Hour. So have no doubt about it, but follow me. This is the right path.
[43:63] And let not Satan hinder you. Surely, he is to you an open enemy.
[43:64] And when Jesus came with clear proofs, he said, ‘Truly I am come to you with wisdom, and to make clear to you some of that about which you differ. So fear Allah and obey me.
[43:65] ‘Verily Allah — He is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. This is the right path.’

So on Judgment Day who does a Muslim follow? Muhammad? He’s dead and buried in Medina. So who will appear to Muslims in Judgment Day to follow? Is it not Jesus?

Hi

Our Protestant friends think that in verse 43:62, given above, Day of Judgment has been discussed only. I don’t agree with them. Quran mentions “the Hour”, an important time or a turning hour, in the history of man, which could be many after when Jesus passed away. For instance advent of Muhammad and or still later advent of Second Coming 1835-1908, in the present times, may also have been referred, I don’t deny that.

I respect my friends here, so, in supposition we take it to be the Day of Judgment, and we would see it in the light of Quran only, as our friends want it this way.

Fortunately both the straight path or the straight way and the Day of Judgment have been mentioned, though briefly in the first or the introductory Chapter of Quran Al-Fatihah or The Opener; and in detail in the later chapters/verses spread over whole of the Quran:

[1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
[1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,
[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.
[1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.
[1:6] Guide us in the right path —
[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/showChapter.php?submitCh=Or+Go+to+Chapter%3A&ch=1

I think every body would agree with me on this that it has been very clearly and in a very straightforward manner mentioned in the above verses that Allah is the Master of the Day of Judgment, none else.

Jesus is not even mentioned there, and very truly, as no name of any other Messenger has been mentioned therein. Only Allah, the Master would judge everybody including Jesus there as per Quran, in my opinion.

I remember one such place where Jesus’ name has been mentioned. Jesus would be judged by Allah at that hour:

[5:117] And when Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, ‘Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah?’”, he will answer, “Holy art Thou. I could never say that to which I had no right. If I had said it, Thou wouldst have surely known it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy mind. It is only Thou Who art the Knower of hidden things.
[5:118] “I said nothing to them except that which Thou didst command
me — ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them as long as I remained among them, but since Thou didst cause me to die, Thou hast been the Watcher over them; and Thou art Witness over all things.
[5:119] “If Thou punish them, they are Thy servants; and if Thou forgive them, Thou surely art the Mighty, the Wise.”

http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/showChapter.php?submitCh=Read+from+verse%3A&ch=5&verse=116

So, as per Quran, it is very clear that not only Allah would be the Master of the Day of Judgment but on that day Jesus would be admonished and accounted for the wrong beliefs of the Protestants and other Christians. Naturally Jesus would clarify his position only in the matter, in my opinion.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran

Thanks
