Preface

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 are increas­ing­ly involved with their cur­rent pro­pa­gan­da, result­ing in the prob­lem of apos­ta­sy among the Mus­lim ummah unawares 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 guid­ance 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 need 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 a 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.
