O people of the Book! Let us get together.....

There came the time when angels said: "O Mary! Surely Allah has exalted you purified you, and preferred you for His service over all the women of the worlds.[42]
O Mary! Be obedient to your Lord, prostrate and bow down in worship with other
worshippers."[43]

O Muhammad, this is the news from the Unseen which We are revealing to you. You were not present with them when priests of the temple cast their pens to decide which of them should be the guardian of Mary; nor were you with
them when they argued about it.



When the angels said "O Mary! Allah gives you the good news with a Word from Him that you will be given a son: his name will be Messiah, Jesus (Jesus Christ) the son of Mary. He will be noble in this world and the Hereafter; and he will be from those who are very close to Allah. [45] He will speak to the people in the cradle and in his old age and he will be among the righteous."[46]
Hearing this, Mary said, "O my Lord! How can I have a son when no man has ever
touched me?" He replied, "Even so, Allah creates however He wants; whenever He decides to do anything, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is![47]

Allah will teach your son the Book, the Wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel[48] and send him forth as a Messenger to the Children of Israel with this message: 'I have brought you signs of my appointment from your Lord. I will make for you the likeness of a bird from clay; I will breathe into it and, with Allah’s leave, it will become a living bird. I will heal the blind and the lepers, and raise the dead to life, by Allah's leave.

Furthermore, I will tell you what you have eaten and what you have stored in your houses. Surely these are the signs to convince you if you are believers.[49] I am appointed to confirm that which is before me from the Torah and to make lawful to you some of the things forbidden to you. Now I have brought you the signs from your Lord, therefore fear Allah and obey me.[50]

In fact, Allah is my Lord as well as your Lord, therefore,
worship Him; this is the Right Way.'"[51]


When Jesus found out that they (most of the children of Israel) had no faith, he
asked: "Who will help me in the cause of Allah?" The Disciples replied: "We will help you in the cause of Allah. We believe in Allah. Be our witness that we are
Muslims."[52]



Then they invoked Allah and said): "Our Lord! We believe in what you have revealed and we follow Your Messenger. Please count us with those who bear
witness."[53]


The unbelievers among the children of Israel plotted against Jesus and Allah also
devised a plan to raise him up, and Allah is the best in planning.[54]
Allah said: "O Jesus! I am going to recall you (from your mission) and raise you up to Myself. I will clean you of those who rejected you and exalt your followers above the unbelievers until the Day of Resurrection; then to Me shall be your return and I shall judge those matters in which you have been disputing.[55] Those who are unbelievers will be punished with severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter;
they shall have no helpers.[56]
As for those who believe and do good deeds, Allah will pay them their full reward. Allah does not love the transgressors."


This revelation which We recite to you is full of signs and wise reminders.[58] In fact, the example of the birth of Jesus ( Jesus) in the sight of Allah is like the example of Adam who had no father and mother, whom He created out of dust, then said to him:
"Be" and he was.[59] This is the Truth from your Lord, therefore, do not be of those who doubt it.[60]




If anyone disputes with you concerning this matter (the birth of Jesus) after full knowledge has come to you, say: "Come! Let us gather our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: then let us earnestly pray and invoke the curse of Allah on the liars."[61] Verily this is the absolute true explanation. The fact of the matter is, that there is no god but Allah; and for sure Allah is the Mighty, the Wise.[62] But if they turn away from accepting this
challenge, it will be clear proof of their mischief and Allah has full knowledge of
mischief-mongers.[63]



Say: "O people of the Book! Let us get together on what is common between us and you: that we shall worship none but Allah; that we shall not associate any partners with Him; that we shall not take from among ourselves any lords beside Allah." If they reject your invitation then tell them: "Bear witness that we are Muslims (who have surrendered to Allah)."[64]

"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Assalamualaikum brother,

Thank you for sharing the translation from the Holy Quran. May Allah continue to grant us the ability to gain knowledge and wisdom & practice them in our daily life.

Abu Hurairah (r.a) reported:
The Prophet (please and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "He who removes from a believer one of his difficulties of this world, Allah will remove one of his troubles on the Day of Resurrection; and he who finds relief for a hard-pressed person, Allah will make things easy for him on the Day of Resurrection; he who covers up (the faults and sins) of a Muslim, Allah will cover up (his faults and sins) in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah supports His slave as long as the slave is supportive of his brother; and he who treads the path in search of knowledge, Allah makes that path easy, leading to Jannah for him; the people who assemble in one of the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah, learning it and teaching, there descends upon them the tranquility, and mercy covers them, the angels flock around them, and Allah mentions them in the presence of those near Him; and he who lags behind in doing good deeds, his noble lineage will not make him go ahead."

Ibn-In passages like this one can see the connection, the continuity, that exists between the Hebrew and Christian God and Allah. That they are One God.

Allah is perfect. He has no partners. We worship Him and Him alone.

Translation Surah Al Ikhlas: 1-4
Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allah, (the) One."Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks)."He begets not, nor was He begotten; "And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him."

Greetings in peace and love,

We must remember that the New Testament was canonized in the year 325 at the Council of Naecia where 27 books were selected by a majority vote, of course in that congregation the majority was of those who believed in the “Trinity” and other conceptions. Those who represented the true church were a small minority and though they vehemently opposed all abominations, they were, on pain of torture and death, forced into silence. Before the Council's meeting, Jesus was NOT called the Son of God. The Council decided to change that. There were a few other things changed as well. Moreover, the books collected into the New Testament do not constitute the utterances of Jesus nor his disciples as they were written down in Latin or Greek and not in Hebrew.

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said:

Narrated Ubaidullah: "Ibn 'Abbas said, 'Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah's Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, 'It is from Allah,' to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Holding Fast to the Qur'an and Sunnah, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461)"

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The people of the Book used to read the Torah in Hebrew and then explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. Allah's Apostle said (to the Muslims). 'Do not believe the people of the Book, nor disbelieve them, but say, 'We believe in Allah and whatever is revealed to us, and whatever is revealed to you.' ' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Holding Fast to the Qur'an and Sunnah, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 460)"
