  3. Asalaym Alaykum, They are considered Muslims submitting to the revelations given at that time period from God. Accordingly, the time period for us today is governed by the lasted revealed book the Holy Quran. Today I have perfected your religion for you, and I have completed My blessing upon you, and I have approved Islam as your religion. (Al-Maidah 3) We have sent down to you the Book with the truth, confirming what was before it of the Book and as a guardian over it. ( Al-Maidah 48)
  4. Asalam Alaykum, Prophet Isa (pbuh), didn't receive a new Torah, he receive the Gospel, which was given to him as wisdom and light, the correct understanding of the Torah and its applications of Law. "And He will teach him the Book and wisdom, the Torah and the Evangel, and [he will be] an apostle to the Children of Israel." (Al Imran 48) "When Jesus brought the manifest proofs, he said, ‘I have certainly brought you wisdom, and [I have come] to make clear to you some of the things that you differ about. So be wary of Allah and obey me." (AL-ZUKHRUF 63) Such an example is the Sabbath. Prophet Isa didn't change the Sabbath. He taught the correct application of the Sabbath. Such as the wisdom given to him in the words; "Sabbath was created for man, not man for the Sabbath." Another example was healing or helping a person on the Sabbath. At that time the Jews prohibited do anything on the Sabbath, but prophet Isa (pbuh) taught; "Who of you having one sheep that fell into a pit, would not go and get it on the Sabbath, how much more worth is a man than a sheep? So it is lawful to do a good deed on the Sabbath day." Truly what wisdom. Thats the gospel! Alhumdullah! As far a proof text that the Torah became corrupted, the Bible book of Jeremiah 8:8 says: "How can you say, 'We are wise, And the law of the LORD is with us'? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes Has made it into a lie.
  5. How the Gospels were created Constantine then instructed Eusebius to organize the compilation of a uniform collection of new writings developed from primary aspects of the religious texts submitted at the council. His instructions were: Eusebius amalgamated the "legendary tales of all the religious doctrines of the world together as one", using the standard god-myths from the presbyters' manuscripts as his exemplars. Merging the supernatural "god" stories of Mithra and Krishna with British Culdean beliefs effectively joined the orations of Eastern and Western presbyters together "to form a new universal belief" (ibid.). Constantine believed that the amalgamated collection of myths would unite variant and opposing religious factions under one representative story. Eusebius then arranged for scribes to produce, They were the "New Testimonies", and this is the first mention (c. 331) of the New Testament in the historical record. With his instructions fulfilled, Constantine then decreed that the New Testimonies would thereafter be called the "word of the Roman Savior God" (Life of Constantine, vol. iii, p. 29) and official to all presbyters sermonizing in the Roman Empire. He then ordered earlier presbyterial manuscripts and the records of the council "burnt" and declared that "any man found concealing writings should be stricken off from his shoulders" (beheaded) (ibid.). As the record shows, presbyterial writings previous to the Council of Nicaea no longer exist, except for some fragments that have survived. Some council records also survived, and they provide alarming ramifications for the Church. Some old documents say that the First Council of Nicaea ended in mid-November 326, while others say the struggle to establish a god was so fierce that it extended "for four years and seven months" from its beginning in June 325 (Secrets of the Christian Fathers, op. cit.). Regardless of when it ended, the savagery and violence it encompassed were concealed under the glossy title "Great and Holy Synod", assigned to the assembly by the Church in the 18th century. Earlier Churchmen, however, expressed a different opinion. The Second Council of Nicaea in 786-87 denounced the First Council of Nicaea as, If one chooses to read the records of the Second Nicaean Council and notes references to "affrighted bishops" and the "soldiery" needed to "quell proceedings", the "fools and madmen" declaration is surely an example of the pot calling the kettle black. Constantine died in 337 and his outgrowth of many now-called pagan beliefs into a new religious system brought many converts. Later Church writers made him "the great champion of Christianity" which he gave, Historical records reveal this to be incorrect, for it was "self-interest" that led him to create Christianity (A Smaller Classical Dictionary, J. M. Dent, London, 1910, p. 161). Yet it wasn't called "Christianity" until the 15th century (How The Great Pan Died, Professor Edmond S. Bordeaux [Vatican archivist], Mille Meditations, USA, MCMLXVIII, pp. 45-7). Over the ensuing centuries, Constantine's New Testimonies were expanded upon, "interpolations" were added and other writings included (Catholic Encyclopedia, Farley ed., vol. vi, pp. 135-137; also, Pecci ed., vol. ii, pp. 121-122). For example, in 397 John "golden-mouthed" Chrysostom restructured the writings of Apollonius of Tyana, a first-century wandering sage, and made them part of the New Testimonies (Secrets of the Christian Fathers, op. cit.). The Latinized name for Apollonius is Paulus (A Latin-English Dictionary, J. T. White and J. E. Riddle, Ginn & Heath, Boston, 1880), and the Church today calls those writings the Epistles of Paul. Apollonius's personal attendant, Damis, an Assyrian scribe, is Demis in the New Testament (2 Tim. 4:10). The Church hierarchy knows the truth about the origin of its Epistles, for Cardinal Bembo (d. 1547), secretary to Pope Leo X (d. 1521), advised his associate, Cardinal Sadoleto, to disregard them, saying, The Church admits that the Epistles of Paul are forgeries, saying, Likewise, St Jerome (d. 420) declared that the Acts of the Apostles, the fifth book of the New Testament, was also "falsely written" ("The Letters of Jerome", Library of the Fathers, Oxford Movement, 1833-45, vol. v, p. 445).
  6. Asalam Alaykum, The list of Torah keeping Christians is very extensive. The earliest follows of Jesus (pbuh) that observed the 7th day Sabbath as required by the 10 Commandments given to Moses are: The Nazerenes, the Ebonites, and the Essenes. Today most are called Messianic's, 7th day Adventist, etc. According to the Christian Scriptures: Jesus said : "Do not think I came to destroy the law or the prophets, I came not to destroy but to fulfill." Matt 5:17
  7. Asalam Alaykum, True Christian= Followers of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) Followers of the Prophet Jesus = Torah law + Gospel = A Muslim Christian 1) Worship the one True God Allah 2) Observes the Sabbath day 3) Eats and drinks Kosher dietary laws 4) Observes the 7 Torah Commanded Feast Observances 5) Refrains from wearing unlawful immodest clothing 6) Understands that the blood of animals or humans cannot expiate for our sins. These are the basics. As you can see, there's not many Christians obeying the Torah as Jesus (pbuh) did.
  8. Salam Alakium, Jehovahs witness believe that Jesus is the son of God. Below is what God says in the Holy Quran: Bismillah ialrrahman ialrraheem, "The Jews say,‘Ezra is the son of Allah,’ and the Christians say, ‘Christ is the son of Allah.’ That is an opinion that they mouth, imitating the opinions of the faithless of former times. May Allah assail them, where do they stray?!" -(at Tawbah 9:30 -ali quli qatai) "They say,‘Allah has taken a son!’ Immaculate is He! He is the All-sufficient. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. You have no authority for this [statement] "Do you attribute to Allah what you do not know? Say, ‘Indeed those who fabricate lies against Allah will not be felicitous." ( Yunus 10:68-69 -ali quli qatai) Although, some of there religious stances are noble, we must stand on the side of truth. The Quran sets straight what is out of line. I was one of Jehovah's witnesses for several years, spent many hours knocking on doors, I know there doctrine very well. Those that believe that true Christians exist today are somewhat deceived, because the true pure gospel give to Jesus (pbuh) doesn't exists anymore. It was destroyed and a new book was created called the Bible. The 4 books called the gospel in the Bible are really not the gospel given to Jesus (pbuh) but a mixture of traditions, mans philosophy, poetry, conjecture and some truth. That why its full of errors, and contradictions. Any true sincere Christian Inshallah embrace Islam, because after your done sincerely searching for truth, there no pure light but Islam and the final Messenger Prophet Mohammad. (peace be upon him and his purified progeny.) Those to whom We have given the Book follow it as it ought to be followed: they have faith in it. As for those who defy it -it is they who are the losers. - (in al-Baqarah by Ali Quli Qara'i) If your follow the Book the way it ought to be followed, Inshallah it will lead you progressively into Islam.
  9. The brother is asking for help because he bit into the fruit and doesn't like the sour taste. Why is the fruit sour? Because he was deceived. The brothers problem is that his wife is not practicing muslim things from the religion of Islam. (rites, rituals, laws ) Truthfully, isn't this why he's in this predicament? For the most part, good advice and blessing don't come from trying to find loopholes to do wrong things. "It maybe that if he divorces you his Lord will give him, in [your] stead, wives better than you: [such as are] muslim, faithful, obedient, penitent, devout and given to fasting, virgins and non-virgins." - at-Tahrim (66:5 ali-quli-qarai)
  10. "she hasnt expressed an interest in prayer, said she doesnt think fasting is safe etc. Although at times cant be as supportive as I would like to given some situations such as some of her old friends being in the wrong circles and only socially meeting when alcohol is present etc. So when she asks how I would feel if she went to meet them in that environment, given she wouldnt drink, that is not something I can support" "From a fiqhi perspective she is considered a Muslim so all the rights off a Muslim apply to her." How is she a Muslim from a fiqhi perspective? A Muslim is someone who submits to the sharia of Allah. Subhannallah and follows the path of the Prophet pbuh, and his purified progeny. Alhamdulillah. Her actions indicate otherwise.
