MY JOURNEY FROM THE CHRISTIANITY OF AHLUL SUNNAH WAL JAMAAH TO THE ISLAM OF THE PROPHET

`My Journey From the Christianity of Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamaah to the Islam of the Prophet'
This book is dedicated to my Christian brothers Osama bin Laden, the very Christian Imam of the Grand Mosque at Mecca, the Christian Shiah Ayatollahs of Iran, the very Christian Aga Khan and the Ismailis, the Christian Qadiani brothers and the Christian Ahmadiya brothers, the very Christian Tareqah and Christian Sufi brothers, the perfectly Christian Tablighi and the almost one billion other Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah and Shiah people throughout the world who have been duped into being Christians. They think they are Muslim but for over a thousand years they have actually been practising Christianity.
Please read this simple and easy to read book to find out the reasons. I came to realise this not by any design of my own or under anyone else's guidance but simply through my own research especially from the Quran.
I hope you will all read this book with an objective and intelligent mind (which is not an easy thing to do for the Ahlul Sunnah or the Shiah) and I hope that this book will help you in your journey towards the beautiful and powerful Islam that was revealed to the Prophet of Islam.
The first inkling I got about the influence of Christianity on the Ahlus Sunnah and Shiah are the too many similarities in the beliefs between Christianity and the Ahlus Sunnah and Shiah which are taught to us since we are children. But we have been taught by the priests of Ahlus Sunnah and Shiah that its alright to have so many similarities with the Christians as well as the Jews because all the the Jewish scriptures and the Christian Bible all bore the same teachings. This is not true at all. Only the Quran carries the Truth that withstands scrutiny, criticism and investigation. The Jewish scriptures and the Bible carry too many falsehoods.
But (quite unfortunately and sadly too ) I will prove in this book that what is written in the scriptures of the Christians and Jews that is accepted by the priests of Ahlus Sunnah and Shiah is actually not part of the Prophet's teachings.
The thing that got me worried from the beginning are the following verses in the Quran.
[Surah 3.100] O you who believe! if you obey a party from among those who have been given the Book, they will turn you back as unbelievers after you have believed.
[Surah 3.101] But how can you disbelieve while it is you to whom the communications of Allah are recited, and among you is His Apostle? And whoever holds fast to Allah, he indeed is guided to the right path
In these verses the Prophet warns us in no uncertain terms that the people of the Book (the Christians and the Jews) will seek to deviate the Muslims away from Islam and back to their religion.
If that is the case how then could the Prophet teach us anything at all that is NOT FOUND in the Quran but is only found inside the Christian Bible and the Jewish scriptures ? We will come to this point again in more detail.
But before I go any further it is important that we speak a little about the Quran. No one - not the Grand Ayatollahs in Iran, not the Chief Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca or any other chief priest of Ahlus Sunnah or Shiah knows the contents of the Quran from cover to cover. They recite the Quran like a sing song mantra book but they have no idea about its real contents.
The Quran represents the true spoken word of the Prophet - words that were revealed to him by God. The Quran is very clear about this:
Surah 69:40 ‘Most surely, it is the speech of an honored Apostle’.
The Arabic is unmistakable : “Innahu la kaulu rasuulin kareem”. ‘Kaulu’ means speech. Indeed the Quran represents the speech of the Rasul. When we recite the Quran in the Arabic language we are actually reciting the words that were first spoken out by the Rasul.
Hence I like to paraphrase the verses of the Quran that I quote in this book with these words 'the Prophet said..' .
The Quran has been sent down to us also as a confirming scripture or criterion. The Arabic word for a Criterion scripture is 'furqan'. Here is the verse:
[Surah 25.1] “Blessed is He Who sent down the Furqan upon His servant that he may be a warner to the nations”.
Now it is very simple logic that a confirming scripture can only confirm things that are found within its own pages. For example the Quran says that God created the first female Self and from her God created her spouse. We will discuss this in detail later.
Nowhere does the Quran say that God created the woman from the rib of the man which is what is written in the Christian Bible and also found in the fake hadith. So to be point blank accurate (and also to speak the truth) the Quran cannot confirm the passages in the Christian Bible which say that the woman was created from the rib of the man.
But the priests of Ahlus Sunnah and Shiah believe that indeed the woman was created from the rib of the man. They echo the following Biblical story.
Genesis 2 : 21 - 23 : “But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs [i] and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, for she was taken out of man."
This story cannot be found inside the Quran therefore the Quran cannot confirm this story. To overcome this deviation from the Quranic truth, the priests of Ahlul Sunnah say that although the Quran does not say so, it is found in the extra Quranic sayings of the Rasul which the Ahlus Sunnah call 'hadith' and the Shiah call 'khabar'.
I would like to pause here for a while. The reader has to stop and ponder this for a minute because it is important. The priests of Ahlul Sunnah and Shiah thereby acknowledge that these Christian beliefs are NOT found in the Quran but they are found in their extra Quranic writings of the hadith or the khabar.
To overcome this discrepancy the priests of Ahlul Sunnah and Shiah have concocted the further lie that their ridiculous and fake collections of hadith and khabar (both supposedly being recorded sayings of the Rasul) have the same stature as the revealed Quran.
I will also go into much detail about the falsehood of the hadith in the chapters ahead.
