He Wanted To Become Muslim, But Died..died...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Asalamu alaykum

 

A christian wants to become a muslim. He wakes up, with a fresh mind, because today he's going to take the shahada in the masjid. He can't wait. He puts his jacket on, and open the door. Today he don't want to take the car, but take the bike. He's now moving ahead to the masjid. Unfortuneatly, a drunk driver hits the christian man, and then he dies in the hospital. He wanted to take the shahda - it was his niyaa, but died on the way. He haven't said it yet.

 

1. Will this person be treated as a muslim? Or a kafir, who rejected al-Haq?

My answer...

depends on which is the right path...

Yahshua the Christ,

 or muslim...

God knows what is in the heart and who belongs to Him. :)

God will judge by what is in the heart... I think it's about alot more than being 'muslim', or 'Christian'.

How do you come up with these questions and why does it matter?

I know a Christian who actually did die from a car accident that was on the verge of becoming a Muslim. True story.

Heart definitely matters most. Within Islam itself it is deemed possible for some Christians to go to heaven because of their pure hearts.

Do Christians believe that only Christians can go to heaven? 

 

Greetings aliasghark,

 

Does it matter what 'Christians' believe?

To my mind, it matters what God decides.  I only need to worry about myself.

Personally I think there are many muslims who will be deserving of heaven and will earn heaven when they come to know the Truth of Yahshua... which I believe everyone will (that wants to be saved) during the tribulation time.  I can think of many muslim brothers and sisters that I would hope to meet in heaven.

In heaven there will not be 'Christians', or Jews, or muslims... just people whose hearts belong to God.

 

Salaam,

CLynn

I'll take that as a yes, Christians think only Christians will go to heaven. 

 

In Islam, Muslims think that Christians and Jews can also go to heaven. The Quran is a bit more accepting in that sense.

There is a verse about Christians and jews, thinking they only go in heaven. If you remember the verse, if not I will bring it.

Greetings aliasghark,

 

Well then you take it wrong, and ascribe meaning to my words not as they were meant,

and I am sorry about that.

and I must challenge you because according to what I understand islam says that God will only accept those who take the shahada... in other words must be considered muslims.

 

3:85  And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter.

 

Now if this means that I do not have to accept Muhammad but only have to be submitted to God, as it says here:

 

3:84  Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered.

 

and as long as Allah and the God of Yahshua are the same,

then I am good.

You're free to 'correct' it, but since you don't I think the answer is clear. Sorry :)

These two verses of the holy Quran tell us that those who have faith and Christians and Jews, and those who do good and believe in God and the day of judgement, they don't need to worry.

How could he die as a kaffir if he had acknowledged the truth of Islam and was on his way to publicly declare it? The people at the Mosque didn't see his heart say: 'La ilaha ilAllah Muhammadan RasoolAllah' but God did.

Have you read the Tafsir of those verses?

Don't kid yourself into thinking God is going to give free pass to people who rejected His Prophet's and called them and Him liars.

You're right. I'm sorry. I know you didn't. What I meant was, the way you said it implied a general rule for all Christians and Jews like theapparent meaning of the verse gives. However, we know that isn't the case because of the more explicit verses and the many Ahadith that deal with this topic. It's late I should get to bed. Sorry for coming off harsh bro, I hadn't meant too.

People like CLynn will get the wrong idea. God has promised Heaven to the believers, essentially those who meet the criteria of 'belief'. Rejecting a prophet would mean one hasn't met that criteria. But at the end of the day everyone's circumstances are different and unique and God will not judge two human beings from the time of Adam [a] till the end of time the same. We all have had in one way or another a different path to walk on in our journey to the Divine and some may have had more exposure to the truth than others. God is just and He won't do any injustice to anyone on that Day. And in all honesty, I hope we all get in. I want all you guys in paradise (yes, even you CLynn :P ). Perhaps the problem is we are too preoccupied with salvation of others too see we gotta deal with our own first.

Pretty much what I was saying in my post #11, don't know if you saw it.

 

According to the verses I quoted from the qur'an, I do not have to accept Muhammad, as long as I am submitted to the 'one true God'.

I don't need to accept Muhammad, I have Yahshua.

Muhammad came to lead a different people out of idolism.

and as I said, it only applies if Allah and the God of Yahshua are the same...

and if they are not, I'm still good.

 

Salaam. :)

Allah = God, but Yashua's message was distorted by humans (is what we believe, and you are entitled to your beliefs about the Quran and Islam if they are based on logical evidence).

Greetings BuggyLemon,

 

Just curious...

In what way do you think Yahshua's message was distorted?

Are you familiar with Yahshua's teachings?

    • @eThErEaL Surely the Arabs possessed some virtues before the advent of Prophethood, but we shouldn't fool ourselves into believing that these virtues outstripped their many sins and vices. As Ja'far ibn Abu Talib capably summarized in his address to the King of Abyssinia,  “We were a people of Jahiliyyah, worshipping idols, eating the flesh of dead animals, committing abominations, neglecting our relatives, doing evil to our neighbours and the strong among us would oppress the weak…” Their actions are repudiated time and time again by the Qur'an. "And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it." [3:103] “And when the news of a female (child) is brought to any of them, his face becomes dark, and he is filled with inward grief! He hides himself from the people because of the evil of that whereof he has been informed. Shall he keep her with dishonour or bury her in the earth? Certainly, evil is their decision” [al-Nahl 16:58]   Now I don't mean to be racist towards the Arab race, and nor are the practices of the people of jahiliyyah reflective of most Arabs today. But it seems to me that it took the best of the 124,000 prophets to bring the Arabs of that time into line for a handful of years- before they rebelled against his teachings once more as soon as he passed away, all for the greed of power and authority.
    • As a historical source I think it is fair to use. We may not have rijal information on all of the chains; that's partly because our rijal books are mostly focused on hadith narrators of the second hijri century - companions of the mid to late Imams. Abu Mikhnaf himself was not close to the Imams, he was a descendant of a companion of Amir al-Mu'mineen (as), but he is relied upon by Waqidi, Tabari, Shaykh al-Mufid, and other Sunni and Shia historians. It's one of the earliest accounts of the event. He died (d. 157 AH) in the early part of Musa al-Kadhim's Imamate, and his chains to the event are very short. Since his text is about a public event, and Najashi called him a scholar of Kufa in his time, and since he was not criticized until much later Sunni scholars like Dhahabi, I feel that it is a good source. There are some discrepancies, and so it's not holy scripture, but I found it to be very useful when I first converted. Here is a good post on the topic: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235023655-why-is-abu-mikhnaf-reliable/?do=findComment&comment=2716964
    • I don't quite understand this.  Hypothetically, let's say one's father is against you getting married, so if you attempt to change your wali to a grandfather or an uncle who says yes to the marriage, will it still be illegitimate?  And there are some fathers who won't let them get married no matter what the reason. What then?
