CALLING OUT TO FRIENDS IN THE MUSLIM, CHRISTIAN AND JUDAIST FAITHS. . .
What is it that we cannot share? At the end of the line don’t we all believe in God? Though our prophets are different don’t we all believe in only one God? Do we not believe in Heaven and Hell? Do we not believe in Judgment Day? Do we not believe in Providence, the Angels and the Devil?
Then why do we attack one another?
Regardless of the Prophet we believe in, are we not going to go to the Heaven and Hell we believe in?
All right, those who reject God;
The unbelievers will be led to Hell in crowd: Until, when they arrive there, its gates will be opened and its keepers will say, “Did not apostles come to you from among yourselves, rehearsing to you the Signs of your Lord, and warning you of the Meeting of this Day of yours?” The answer will be: “True, but the Decree of Punishment has been proved true against the unbelievers!” VERSE 71, THE CROWD (ZUMAR), SURA 39
And those attributing a partner to Him? ;
God forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; abut He forgiveth anything else, to whom he pleaseth; to set up partners with God is to devise a sin most heinous indeed. VERSE 48, THE WOMEN (NISAA) SURA 4
How pitiable they are. . Because they have no God to take refuge at Judgment Day. Those who attribute a partner to God.. .the partner will even be helpless. .
Us believers are actually fortunate, because we have the possibility of being redeemed. .
How about them? No one will help them on that Day.
But, we can still help them today. . .
BY ASKING QUESTIONS THEY CANNOT ANSWER. . .
OR BY GIVING ANSWERS THEY CANNOT QUESTION. . .
Let’s explain the prodigies of God with scientific evidence.
First of all we should agree in this matter on a tripartisan basis. . .
Most importantly, let’s do this with poise and patience. . .
Those who spend (freely) whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men;- for God loves those who do good;- VERSE 134, THE FAMILY OF IMRAN (AL-I IMRAN ) SURA 3
Revile not ye those whom they call upon besides God, lest they out of spite revile God in their ignorance. Thus have We made alluring to each people its own doings. In the end will they return to their Lord. And we shall then tell themthe truth of all that they did. VERSE 108, THE CATTLE (AN’AM) SURA 6
Everyone believing in God should be one who shows the way. . .to those who reject and those who attribute a partner to God. . . We may light a candle in their hearts. . .
Therefore give admonition in case the admonition profits the (hearer). VERSE 9, THE MOST HIGH (A’LA) SURA 87
And mind you; we can help them today. Tomorrow may be too late.
I would like to end my call with my latest poem:
TIME IS RUNNING OUT
The story starts with Adam and ends with Jesus. .
Who knows when it began. . .
Do you know when it’ll end?
Time is running out:
To love. . .
To lay down arms. .
Time is running out,
To overcome our lusts and egoism,
To believe. . .
Time is running out
MAY GOD BE YOUR BELOVED AND YOUR COMPANION
SHOWING THE WAY
