Passion of the Christ – Part 2

 

by Yassir Abd At-Tawaab

All praise is due to Allah, and prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.

Last time, we mentioned some of Christ’s passions that he suffered from, like previous prophets of strong will, we also stated that prophets of strong will underwent harm, hardship and difficulty proportional to the big responsibility they bear. Then I stated three points resembling the grave hardship Jesus (peace be upon him) bore:

First suffering was what he went through from killing attempts by the Jews, the Prophet assassins, Allah Almighty said: { And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah,” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]} [Surat An-Nisa`4:157]

{وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّـهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَـٰكِن شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ ۚ وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ اخْتَلَفُوا فِيهِ لَفِي شَكٍّ مِّنْهُ ۚ مَا لَهُم بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعَ الظَّنِّ ۚ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ يَقِينًا} النساء: 157

Transliteration: Waqawlihim inna qatalna almaseeha AAeesa ibna maryama rasoola Allahi wama qataloohu wama salaboohu walakin shubbiha lahum wainna allatheena ikhtalafoo feehi lafee shakkin minhu ma lahum bihi min AAilmin illaittibaAAa alththanni wama qataloohu yaqeenan

Allah Almighty put the look of Jesus on the informant that informed them with his place so they killed him instead of Jesus, thus Allah protected His prophet from their attempt.

The second point we elaborated on is the exaggeration of two groups concerning the status of Jesus, either they belittle or exaggerate his status, accusing him of lying and offending him, the other group attributed deity to him wrongfully. This ascription wasn’t given to any of the previous prophets; they only endured their people’s stubbornness which was answered in the previous article.

Lastly I pointed out their distortion with the book of Allah, the real Bible, until it ended up full of contradiction and doubt apparent in its different copies attracting sarcasm from the elders and youngsters.

We continue on with our topic…

One of the many passions Christians responsible for is their contradiction to the particularities of the religion and innovating in it. Moreover, forcibly impose their understanding, innovation and faith, harming others either in the name of Christ or for other motives which is contradictory to his teachings (peace be upon him) in all cases. In a more detailed approach, the Christians have contradicted Jesus in all branches of their religion like purity, prayers, fasting, eating pork and hanging the cross which is against his teachings. All the aforementioned are done deliberately on their behalf but they refer any doubt questioned to their priests and patriarchs.

Jesus (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) practiced as worship, not only bodily acts, purity; having purification bath, enjoining menses bath etc…

Different Christian sects believe the entire aforementioned are not obligatory. Moreover, those impurities that a person experiences either followed by sexual intercourse/wet dream, excretion and urination without the need to clean private parts out of purity, likewise their prayers, it would be accepted perfectly if he prayed in this state even if he excreted or urinated while praying.

Ibn Al-Qayim says in his book Hidayat al-Hayaraa (Guidance to The Uncertain in Reply to the Jews and the Nazarenes): “They say (Christians): “That praying in a state of impurity (due to sexual intercourse/wet dream, excretion and urination) is better than being in a state of purity while praying, because it is dissimilar to the way Muslims and the Jews pray. They start their prayers by drawing a cross between their eyes using their hands, an act that Allah and His prophets, including Jesus, are innocent from. This is closer to a mockery than an act of worship which cannot be imagined to be the prayer of Jesus nor the 12 apostles.”

Jesus used to recite in his prayers what the prophets before recited from the torah and psalms, on the other hand Christians nowadays read in their prayers words that have been composed by their priests closer to songs and mourns. They call it the chant of such and such, ascribing it to the person who composed it. They even face the east while praying which negates the direction that Jesus prayed to, he used to pray to the direction of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa, the Qibla of Dawud and the Prophets preceding him from the children of Isra’eel.

Jesus was circumcised and he enjoined the practice the way enjoined by Musa, Harun and Prophets before him. Jesus also forbade consuming pig’s meat and emphasized on its prohibition while the Christians acknowledge this fact. Moreover he didn’t even eat a grain’s weight of it until he met his Lord; however the Christians seek nearness to Him through eating pork. Even their fasting, that wasn’t enjoined nor practiced once in his life neither by his companions. He didn’t even take Sunday as a Holiday. The Christians acknowledge the incident of Jesus curing Mary Magdalene from Jinn possession leading out seven of them in her body, and then the devils asked him “where should we reside then?” He replied, “Reside in this impure animal (i.e. the pig). This a narration by the Christians themselves from Jesus, while they still claim that it is one of the most clean and beautiful animals on earth.”

Among other passions of Jesus, is his followers’ harsh attitude between their selves and injustice towards others. This is a complicated problem contradicting the teachings of Jesus (peace be upon him) that calls for mercy, leniency and compassion between people. Among these massacres done by the Christians are:

Historian Robert Brevolt says: “The estimate of people killed due to the spread of Christianity in Europe falls between 7-15 million.” The number is striking in comparison to the population number in Europe during this period.

When Christians were separated into different sects they started attacking each other torturing this sect’s followers. When the Copts refused the decision of the Council of Chalcedon the Romans tortured them in the churches and continued for years, they even burned the Archbishop’s brother ‘Bin Yamin’ alive then threw him in the sea. While the archbishop remained hiding for seven years and did not appear until the Muslims conquered Egypt and drove the Romans out.

Other similar events took place in different lands. In France, Charlemagne imposed Christianity by sword on the Saxons. Cnut the Danish king annihilated non-Christians; even king Olaf of Norway practiced the same thing in 995 A.D and the practice continues in different parts of Europe like in the era of Livonian brothers of the sword.

Gustave Le Bon says in his book ‘The civilization of Arabs’: “Egypt has been compelled to impersonate Christianity, thus it sunk to the lowest levels of degradation and nothing saved it from this state except for the Arab conquest.”

Michael patriarch of Antakya says: “Lord of vengeance brought by from the southern parts sons of Isma’eel, to rescue us from the hands of the Romans, their anger and hatred towards us. Secondly, we felt peace among us.” In Alexandria alone two hundred thousand Copts were killed.

Edward Gibbon mentions the genocide of Bayt Al-Maqdes: “The crusaders servants of the Lord, as they claim, the day they seized Jerusalem on 15/7/1099 A.D they sacrificed 70,000 Muslim to please the Lord with no mercy even towards elders, children and women. Crush children’s heads to the wall, throwing infants over house roofs, burning men and women in fire. Muslim had the biggest share of religious oppression especially in Andalusia where Muslims suffered hardly from inquisition tribunals to the extent that most Muslims Fled to Morocco. It’s enough what Gustave Le Bon highlighted in his book ‘The civilization of Arabs’ about the inquisition tribunals, he said: “It’s impossible to read, without getting the goose bumps, about the horrific stories of torture and oppression triumphant Christians practiced against forfeited Muslims. They forcibly baptized them, handing them over to the inquisition that burned whoever they could of the vast population, moreover priest ‘Velda’ suggested to behead the Arabs that didn’t convert to Christianity with no exception including women and children. This way three million Arabs were extinguished from Andalusia.”

Velda the priest killed in a single caravan of the immigrants about 100,000 in ambushes set by him and his followers. Velda even asked to slaughter all the Arabs in Spain, including the ones converted to Christianity. He argues that it is impossible to know if they are sincere or not so they must be killed by sword then God would judge both parties, whereupon the lying ones would be entered to Hellfire.

Similar genocides took place between different Christian sects like the massacre done to the Protestants by the Catholics in 1572 A.D many thousands were killed in this incident that was blessed and welcomed by the Pope. Likewise the Protestants returned the favour to the Catholics in the era of Queen Elizabeth where she issued towards them oppressive rules, executing 104 catholic priests while ninety died in Jail, the destruction of the catholic churches and confiscating their money.

The queen used to say: “The souls of infidels will be burnt in Hellfire forever; nothing is more legitimate than imitating the divine vengeance and burning them on earth.”

Therefore we could say that the history of Christianity is connected to the use of sword even amongst its followers, however the Christian oppression is known for its brutality and vulgarism that even extended to women, children and places of worship.

These massacres were done by the hands of emperors, blessed by the church and its members. The church issued these laws that led to oppression and killing whoever opposes these laws. Pope Innocent III said: “Penalties imposed on the heretics are obligatory upon all the kings and rulers under the law of the church.”

These are the real passions of Jesus offending him and his religion, taking him as a god despite Allah’s Almighty existence. Moreover his religion is abused and used as a tool to harm, oppress and kill people.
