All praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, his family, his companions and to all generations of Muslims who were and are currently pursuing their path in earnest.
This book was written with full awareness of the Christian missionary movement which is increasingly involved with their current propaganda, resulting in the problem of apostasy among the Muslim ummah unaware of the history of this religion. What is sad is that those affected are children with little or no religious education. Some of them were given basic Islamic knowledge, but this knowledge was too thin to be an effective counter to the onslaught of Christian thought.
We seek refuge in God from all doubts of faith and from the plot of the unbelievers, especially among those of the People of the Scripture who are always trying to undermine our faith. Verily, God has revealed the Qur’an as a guide for those willing to seek the truth. But the truth cannot be attained when the search process is based on a deep-set hatred for Islam. Mankind needs to liberate their thinking from the elements of jahilliyyah, review their actions and acts of superstitious practices that pollute and alter their culture of life and ethics. This will thus put in place a new structure for a more comprehensive life with universal values and the majesty of faith when these undesirable elements are successfully discarded.
It is obvious that if we were to examine the fundamentals of the teachings of contemporary Christianity, one would discover that it did not come from the true teachings of Christ Jesus, but through through the teachings of a Jew from the city of Tarsus (now located in Turkey) by name of Saul, who later changed his name to Paul. Not many people know that Paul was actually a drunkard1 and a murderer2. Paul had managed to successfully convince the followers of Jesus that he had received a “revelation” to continue the teachings of Jesus and have joined them to spread the teachings of Jesus. However, it appears that Paul had latent malice, which is to destroy the religion of Jesus from within by introducing false doctrines that had no basis in the authentic teachings of Jesus. His aim was to simply attract the Gentiles to participate in the religion he created. This situation eventually led Paul was involved in a feud with the Companions of Jesus, which in turn eventually caused him to leave the hawariyyun to spread his teachings alone together with his followers.
Our hope is that this book will shed light on the history and origins of Christianity and how it has evolved to this day, apart from contributing to the spread of knowledge among Muslims and opening their eyes to the origins of Christianity and the teachings of its true founder, Paul of Tarsus — otherwise known as the Apostle of Doom.
