Islam is the “only” religion in the world that its name means surrender or submission, i.e. total and sincere surrender to God. As a religion, Islam was “not” named after an individual or a tribe, nor a name chosen by humans, it was rather chosen by God. Believing that any of God’s creation shares in His power or attributes is considered polytheism and disbelief in Islam. God is One!
Islam forbids any intercessors between humans and God; The Creator needs NO intermediaries. He is closer to them than their jugular vein. The Quran, God’s words to humanity, was perfectly preserved by God, The Guardian, until the end of time. The miracle of the Quran lives on, as it challenges all of humanity to dare and change a “LETTER” in it until the end of time. This miracle of Quran preservation since more 1400 years and until the end of time, is in itself proof that it’s the final book.
As people throughout history attempted to discredit the Quran, God set a simple challenge to them combined: Produce something similar! Fourteen centuries down the road, no human ever produced anything similar to the Quran ; not even a three-verse chapter. The Quran is, therefore the “only” book today that is fully authored by God; that’s exactly why no one produced anything even close to it.
There is one verse in the Quran that pretty much sums up the uniqueness of this faith; a meaning that has never been revealed before. “This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion” (5:3). Yet, the fact that the ones who question Islam, continuously take its teachings out of context, is in itself proof of its validity. Otherwise, why would you purposely take the teachings of another faith out of context, unless you believe they make perfect sense?
Yet, as a Muslim, there’s one particular verse in the Bible, which I find truly fascinating.Why? Because it’s speaking about Muhammed SAW. In the Bible, Jesus says “I will pray the Father, and he shall give another comforter, that he may abide with you forever” (John 14:16). Subhan Allah, Muhammed SAW mentioned in the Bible until this day, and until the end of time. And by the way, it’s not the only verse!
But the beauty of that particular verse is in the word “another” comforter or helper, do you know why? Because as per every single dictionary on earth, the word “another” means something of the “SAME” type, and usually refers to “persons”! So when Jesus AS says in the Bible that God will send “another comforter” that comforter MUST be human like Jesus, otherwise it’s meaningless.
In all other Biblical verses, the references of the comforter is made to Moses. Why? Because both will have two parents, unlike Jesus. Therefore, as per the Bible, the comforter must be human and must have two parents, so how else could it not be Muhammed SAW?
I simply love Islam because it’s the final revelation, protected by God no matter how hard people throughout history try to conceal it.
