El concepto de Dios en el Cristianismo

13 Aug

great-god-jesus-christ1

 Alá (azzawajal) dice en el Coran (a lo que se puede traducir al español):

“No hay nada que se Le asemeje.”

(42:11)

Sin embargo, ¿porqué los cristianos dicen que Dios es Jesús o que Dios engendró un hijo?

Los atributos de Dios son distintos a los del ser humano. La única similitud que existe entre los nombres y atributos de Dios y aquellos de los seres humanos son en nombre, pero jamás en grado.

Los atributos de Alá (el nombre árabe para decir Dios) son libres de cualquier deficiencia humana. Como musulmanes, a Alá lo podemos referir sólo como Él se ha descrito en el sagrado Corán o como el Profeta Muhammad (salalahu alaihi wa salaam) lo ha descrito.

Inclusive, los nombres an-Naasir y ar-Rasheed son nombres que no le debemos de dar a Alá (azzawajal), ya que no se encuentran en el noble Corán ni en los auténticos hadices. Sin embargo, estos y otros nombres se encuentran en las listas de los 99 nombres de Alá, pero desafortunadamente, estos hadices no son auténticos.

El estudio de tawjeed o la unicidad de Alá es un estudio fundamental en cualquier musulmán. Te alejará de las innovaciones en la religión y te ayudará a entender mejor quién es Alá, conforme a lo que Él nos ha revelado con sus profetas.

En el estudio del tawjeed al-asmaa was sifaat, o lo que se puede traducir a la unidad de Alá en sus atributos y nombres, debemos de entender lo siguiente: que nos referimos a Alá sólo como son son mencionados en el Corán y los hadices auténticos, pero sin atributos de su Creación.

Sabemos que los cristianos y los judíos creen que Alá pasó 6 días creando el universo y en el 7mo descansó (Génesis 2:2) Es por esto que los cristianos y los judíos se toman el sábado o el domingo como día libre y consideran trabajar en uno de estos días como un pecado.

Este atributo es meramente humano; todos sabemos que nosotros hacemos trabajo pesado y debemos de descansar para recuperarnos. Decir que Alá se cansa como su creación es atribuyéndole una acción solamente de su Creación y no digna para su Majestad.

Además, en la Biblia y la Torá, Dios se arrepiente de sus malos pensamientos en la forma como lo hacen los humanos cuando nos damos cuenta de nuestros errores. “Entonces el Señor se arrepintió del mal que dijo que había de hacer a su pueblo.” (Éxodos 32:14)

Además de esto, los cristianos han pintado, moldeado y creado figuras innumerables con apariencia humana y las han llamado “imágenes de Dios.”

jesc3bas-salvando-al-mundo

Si pueden atribuir características y acciones meramente humanas a Dios, no es de ningún asombro que los cristianos aceptan a Jesús (paz y bendiciones) como Dios, o que Dios haga un acto animal de “engendrar” un hijo, cosa que solo se hace en la Creación.

Una vez que las grandes multitudes acepten el concepto de Dios siendo como su Creación y teniendo una figura humana, no es de ningún problema para ellos aceptar a Jesús como Dios.

Es más, me encuentro casi segura que lo hacen sin darse cuenta. Primero, por experiencia propia. Mis días como cristiana fueron una gran mentira en la que me introdujeron sin derecho a preguntar ni cuestionar las creencias que ni en la misma Biblia se mencionan. Por ejemplo, la trinidad nunca es mencionada en la Biblia, ni lo es el signo de una cruz. Nunca Jesús utilizó una cruz sobre su cuello ni le dijo a sus seguidores que lo hicieran.

Hoy escuché un comentario y la mujer le decía a mi mamá: “Recuerde a Dios siempre, y repita: Jesús, Jesús, Jesús…” Yo me preguntaba, ¿Jesús o Dios? Y me recordé que los cristianos creen que los dos extrañamente pueden ser uno. Que el Creador puede ser la Creación. Que lo infinito puede ser lo finito. Que el ignorante (ya que vienen varias partes en la Biblia donde Jesús no conocía de algo) puede ser el Conocedor del Universo.

Ilógico, pero lamentablemente es una falsedad en la viven los cristianos.

Nosotros como seres finitos no estamos en ninguna posición para definir al infinito Señor de todas las creaciones.

Puede parecer un punto muy relevante o simple, pero se debe de definir y mantener firme para prevenir cualquier descripción falsa a Alá (el nombre  árabe para Dios y el que utiliza Alá para si mismo en el Corán).

Si buscas conocer sobre la verdad, no hace falta asistir a una mezquita o hablar con un musulmán o musulmana para conocerlo. Simplemente leyendo el Corán encontrarás tus respuestas.

Yo sé que yo las encontré, después de tantos años de confusión y de ignorancia. Alá es el más Misericordioso, el más Beneficioso: ar-Rahman, nir Raheem y nunca es tarde para conocer el mensaje de Él, el cual vino con cada profeta y mensajero de Dios; con Abraham, con Noé, con Moisés, con Jesús, con Muhammad (paz y bendiciones estén sobre todos ellos) y muchos más.

Insha’Allah te haya beneficiado. Que Alá (azzawajal) nos tengan siempre en el mejor estado de fé (imaan), de salud, que siempre le agradezcamos todas sus bendiciones, que lo alabemos solo a Él, el único digno de adoración, y que nos abra el corazón y nos ilumine con el Corán. Ameen.

The Truth About Jesus – Lecture by Abdul Rahman Green

13 Jun

As salaam alaykum,

I hope you are in the best of emaan, health and peace insha’Allah.
I just wanted to share this video with you concerning the message of Jesus and unfortunately what Christianity has done with it. However, this wonderful lecture talks about the true message of Jesus and this brother has a marvelous way of giving dawah that makes you want to finish the whole video mash’Allah, even if you are non-Muslim.
Insha’Allah you will enjoy it and learn some very basic yet misinterpreted conceptions about Jesus (radi allahu anhu).
Chao.

Thoughts on Christianity being a monotheistic religion

21 Apr

As-salaam alaikum (May the blessings of Allah be upon you) 

islam-381-here-the-truth.com

We are taught that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all monotheistic religions. Christianity, I think personally, is not.

As I sit here typing down these few ideas, my family has gone out to attend a Christian church. So now, I face two hours alone, with my own thoughts before we all walk out to grab from lunch.

I’m quite honestly not thrilled about attending the get-together at lunch, as I know I will be bombarded with multiple questions and interrogations as to why I don’t assist the church as well next Sunday. Also, hearing my family chat on about the wonderful shirk –or idolatry- they’re in, will be excruciating for my ears to hear.

You see, my brother was indulged into the religion of this Christian sect a while back from my uncle, my sister went on account of my brother and his friend’s influence, and now finally my mother has decided to join them on account of her non-practicing Catholic faith and has thought she’ll “give it a go.”

So that leaves me out of the picture, as I strongly resist going; not because I “fear” being trapped into their cobweb, but because I have stable reasoning behind my decision.

First and foremost, I have reverted to Islam not too long ago, at the beginning of this year, after many months of research and understanding of the religion Subhanallah. Although, there isn’t much to “get your head around” about Islam. Worshiping One God is quite simple for human nature to accomplish as it comes so naturally to us.

After I reverted, I think I’ve faced very minor but significant changes both internally and externally. For one, as a Muslim revert, your identity (your previous one) is rather washed away, because you find yourself not liking the person you once used to be. You benefit from the religion, alhamdulillah, because you find yourself healthier both spiritually and physically speaking.

Do they not think deeply (in their ownselves) about themselves (how Allah created them from nothing, and similarly He will resurrect them)? Allah has created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, except with truth and for an appointed term. And indeed many of mankind deny the Meeting with their Lord. (Ar-Room, 30, 8)

As I began to read the Qur’an, my thoughts on life changed radically. What was before a ritual of praying to God is now something I do with understanding behind it. I see the truth that is Islam; submitting to God – Allah in Arabic – to our Creator, and not submitting to the creation.

Which is what Christians and Muslims differ from. Despite being tagged as a “monotheistic” religion, unfortunately modern day Christians have deviated from traditional Christianity, where only God was worshiped according to the prophetic way of Jesus (peace be upon him).

Now, Christians worship Jesus as if he were God himself, walking on the face of this Earth. How silly to imagine even the slightest appearance of Allah. There is even a hadeeth stating that a slight portion of Allah was shown to a mountain, and it crumbled into pieces when exposed to Allah.

Nobody has even seen Allah. All prophets (peace be upon them all) have never stated that they are God, or have seen God. However, Christians believe that Jesus was God on Earth, or the son of God. This is in fact a form of “shirk” or associating partners or others with Allah, the gravest sin of all in Islam, and the only sin that will not be forgiven.

So no, I don’t think Christianity is a monotheistic religion. Not anymore at least. Maybe years ago it was, but now it has changed. And to know that my mother, brother and sister are all clapping and dancing and singing at a church worshiping Jesus as their “savior” is quite saddening.

“Oh People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion, nor say of God anything but the truth. Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, was (no more than) a messenger of God, and His Word which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Say not, ‘Trinity.’ Desist! It will be better for you, for God is One God, Glory be to Him! (Far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a Disposer of affairs” (4:171).

Despite these moments that I may consider tragic descended down on them, I know that these are tests sent from Allah (subhana wa’taala). What I might consider an “evil” thing is actually there for the good that will come from that evil. We may never know what that good is, but insha’Allah we can pass these tests of faith.

A proper way to spread Islam is not by preaching about it, but by your actions. Most people revert to Islam because of how correct and respectful Muslims are. Never insult a religion, or speak angrily towards anyone. Do not disrespect your parents; a mother is truly valued and respected in Islam.

I try to show my humbleness and respect in my manners and actions at all times, and I’ve found that my mother quite likes the “new” me. She’s even said that I am far different from my siblings, that I respect her and others and was quite surprised to hear me, out of all people, wake up at 4:30 a.m. each morning for fajr – or morning prayer – when I usually would struggle to wake up in the mornings, like most people do.

These types of things should be for pleasing Allah only. Don’t indulge in something to show off, or make a point. Quoting a Spanish saying, “The best words said are those unsaid.”

I ask Allah to guide my family, my close friends and all those seeking for the truth, to the righteous path of Islam. I ask Allah to bless us Muslims in our faith, to surpass us in wisdom, patience, humbleness and emaan for us to come closer to Allah.

If any mistakes were made during this publication, I accept any faults, and please forgive me if I do, as Allah is perfect and Islam, whereas we Muslims and humans are not perfect.

And Allah knows best.

Chao.

Who am I?

Bismillah hirRahman nirRaheem

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

Image

This is a picture from where I live in Costa Rica. Mash’Allah, such a beautiful scenery.
———-

As-salaam alaikum (May the peace and blessing of Allah be on you)

I’ve gotten some hateful comments on my blog this week, which I clearly won’t allow these hatred-filled emotions to be published on my blog.

Why, you may ask? This is a blog that I created because I love Allah and for the sake of Allah only. I will not accept hate of any sort be expressed on my blog, whether it be to Islam, or any other religion.

I was told to “leave Costa Rica now” since “we don’t want you here on our country.”

I literally Laughed Out Loud.

I am, in fact, Costa Rican. I was born in Costa Rica, raised by Costa Ricans and my entire family and descendants are in fact from Costa Rica.

My parents decided to live in the United States for several years, where I learned English, the northern American lifestyle and I learned to cherish and appreciate the country.

However, my family was always very strong in teaching me as much as they could about my roots. They taught me Spanish and my Latin culture, about Costa Rica and many more.

So for all those that think I’m not from Costa Rica, and that I should leave as I happen to be a “terrorist” (this is laughable, I must admit) then I have nothing to say to you and your ignorant words.

However, most of my followers probably think I’m a foreigner living in Costa Rica since the majority of my articles are in English.

Well, to clear things out, I am Costa Rican. And a Muslim. Subhanallah (All Glory be to Allah).

It might be rather strange for viewers to imagine a Latin Muslim; which is the purpose for which I created my blog 🙂 It’s just like those that don’t understand how a north American can become Muslim, living in the US.

Islam is not a religion of hatred, or of racism, or of oppression or all these other things mentioned on the news. Get your facts straightened up.

Islam has been sent for ALL of mankind.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Every other Prophet was sent only to his people, whereas I have been sent to all mankind.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî]

Oh, and for the “terrorist” point of you, please read this:

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. (2:256 Noble Qur’an)

Different from Christianity, since according to the Gospel of Luke, Jesus (peace be upon him) said:

But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and kill them in front of me. (19:27 Bible)

 Luke 19 was actually one of many Biblical statements that powered the killings of the Crusaders and other “Holy” wars, where Christians would slaughter those that did not accept their religion. Islam has never been a religion forced upon people. War was used only when the Muslims were being attacked and had to defend, not force upon others.

I strongly suggest you consult the imams as to these topics, as I am not a scholar and it’s preferable for this to be discussed with someone of better knowledge than I or any non-scholar for that matter.

Please, I ask you, Muslims and non-Muslims, know the religion of Islam. Know so that you won’t fall in this state of ignorance of which you WILL repent one day, when you’re in front of your Creator on the Day of Judgement pleading for forgiveness because of your actions.

Islam is a religion of God – Allahu Akbar! Muslims are not hated here in my lovely country of Costa Rica. And I will not leave my home country anytime soon to “please” those that “hate” Islam, because I haven’t happened to come across any, alhamdulillah. 🙂

Indeed, those who disbelieve – it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them – they will not believe. (2:6) Noble Qur’an

And Allah (swt) knows best.

Chao. Que Dios te bendiga a todos (which means, may God bless you in Spanish).
