ANGEL CHOKED MOHAMMAD
Pastor Dr. James Mc Donald notes the opinion of Muslim source(s) that at the first Revelation of the Qur’an the Angel Gabriel “choked” Mohammad into reading; and that Mohammad “went into a severe depression for three years;” and “on several occasions he seriously contemplated committing suicide.” The pastor asks, “are those the actions of a person who has just met with Almighty God?” “Sounds more like Satan than God.”
Response: If it was Satan then Satan gave to Mohammad a Book superior than that of the pastor’s God, Jesus, in all respects –moral, social, spiritual, and intellectual.
Mohammad had not “met with Almighty God;” he was visited by the Angel Gabriel. Mohammad was embraced not “choked”–reason would dictate that you do not choke a person whom you want to read, you risk damaging his vocal, then you might never get him to read. Mohammad did not go into “severe depression” nor “contemplated committing suicide”–(For details see Bokhari Vol; 1, # 3-4. Vol; 6, # 478, 475-476).
Imagine yourself –having no notion you are a chosen one of God– meditating in a cave. Suddenly, you are embraced by a force to the point of suffocation commanding you to read. Even if the ethereal being should tell you he is God, what would be your reaction? Seems, it was not uncommon for people to be troubled by the jinn (unseen being). Naturally, Mohammad assumed he was a victim of the devil. He (as we might have done) rushed home to his wife, seeking comfort.
If the devil can tempt “God”/son of God –and for “forty-days”–surely he can toy with a mortal–(Luke 4:1-2). The Gospel is pregnant with people possessed by devils. Jesus pulled “two thousand” from one man alone, and sent them into a herd of swine numbering “about two thousand” which “ran violently down a steep place into the sea and were choked in the sea”–(Mark 5:2-13. For all the swine to run violently and be choked each must have a devil. Count those devils again –all two thousand– and sing hallelujah that you were not the one possessed).
(Incidentally, rather than send the devils into innocent and harmless swine, the Christians’ “God”/son of God should have used his head and load the devils into the Jews who were going about to “kill” him, and have them go berserk among themselves–John 5:18; 7:1, 19. Please note: this is the Christian Jesus; for the Muslim Jesus read the Qur’an).
Here we have the Christians’ God/son of God catering to devils to “Send us into the swine,” causing the death of dumb, innocent pigs; and loss to the owners. “Are those the actions of” God/son of God? “Sounds more like Satan than God.”
As “God”/son of God can be tempted by the devil, and for forty days, a mortal as Mohammad might believe he was toyed with by the devil. It is understandable if a mortal was unknowingly deceived by the devil; but what about the son of God and even “God” Himself who chooses the “Satan(ic)” Peter to lead his flock, and as the “rock” on which to build his Church, and is even given the “keys of the kingdom of heaven”?–(Mark 8:33; Matt.16:18-19).
As shown elsewhere, the Christian rock of Trinity is from the “Devil;” and the mortar of Divine Sonship is from paganism (1). The Christian Passion Play of Jesus is also pagan. And so is the Christian cross, dating back to the “Mithraic cult.”(2)
When Jesus was baptized the “heavens were opened”(?) and the Spirit of God descended “like a dove” and “a voice from heaven” said “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Whereas this “voice” is assumed to be that of God, Jesus said: “Ye have neither heard his (God’s) voice at any time, nor seen his shape”–(John 5:37). Since Satan is “hell bent” on leading man astray from the strait or heavenly gate to the broad or hellish gate, and clearly as the pastor’s “God” indicate that God does not go about throwing his voice, this “a” voice can only be Satan in his mission to lead people astray.
Any wonder then that for 2000 years Christians are “trapped in darkness and misunderstanding” as to who Jesus is and what his mission was? For 2000 years “Satan” has deceived Christians into worshipping Jesus as God, son of God, and vicarious atoner. Christianity is Paganism veneered with the name of Jesus Christ. And Christians try to find non-existent fault with Mohammad and Islam.
Christians do not know who Jesus is and what they follow. Whereas Muslims know who Jesus is –a messenger of Allāh God sent to the Children of Israel– and know who God is. On the contrary, after two thousand years since Jesus’ arrival and departure, Christians are still groping in the field of “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion as to who God is and as to who Jesus is:
-whereas some Christians hold that Jesus is God, some say he is only Son of God (who is right?)
-whereas some Christians believe in Trinity, some hold Trinity as a “senseless God-dishonoring doctrine” from “satan” (who is right?)
-whereas some say Christ died for inherited sin, some say he died for committed sin (who is right?)
-whereas some believe Jesus was killed, buried, and raised, “some of the early Christian sects did not believe that Christ was killed on the cross. The Basilidans believed that some one else was substituted for him. The Docetae held that Christ never had a real physical or natural body, but only an apparent or phantom body, and that his Crucifixion was only apparent, not real. The Marcionite Gospel (about A.D. 138) denied that Jesus was born, and merely said that he appeared in human form.”–(Yusuf, Ali, Qur’anic comm; #663). And these are the cardinal doctrines of their religion.
Christians are also divided as to whether Jesus’ birth was “virginal” or “mechanical.” Paul, who knows more than Christians and whom Christians follow, taught that Jesus had a human father; that Jesus was born from “seed” “according to the flesh” (and “seed” is sperm and “according to the flesh” is sexual intercourse)–(Acts 2:30; Romans 1:3; 2 Timothy 2:8. Virgin birth as well as Mark-16:9-20 and Matthew-28:19 about Jesus saying to teach the Gospel to all nations and to baptise people in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, are “forgeries;” see Bible; Jesus-birth miracle or mechanix?)
Given the humanness of the Bible and the clouds of conjectures surrounding the existence of Jesus, but for the Qur’an/Islam/Mohammad Jesus may have long since been relegated to the bin of myths and legends.
It is the Qur’an/Islam/Mohammad that is keeping Jesus alive; and not only keeping him alive but has cleansed him and his mother, Mary, of the calumnies of “bastard” and “adulteress,” respectively, hurled on them by Jewish Fathers, and appareled them in rubious robes of righteousness, and have secured for them today the unflagging allegiance of some one-and-one-half billion Muslims. And counting as Islam spirits on. Inexorably! Invincibly! Impregnably! As Divinely decreed! To prevail over all religions!
“He it is Who sent His Messenger (Mohammad) with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam), that He may cause it to prevail over all religions, though the polytheists are averse”-(Qur’an 9:32-33; 48:28; 61:8-9).
Allāh God truly is Great!
Subhāna Rabbayyal A’lā!
Jesus as he declared was a Muslim and he taught Islam. He taught that eternal life lies in observing the Ten Commandments until the arrival of the Comforter who will give ‘all truth” and will “abide for ever” (As the Comforter will give “all truth” and ‘abide for ever,” then, the Bible devoid of “all truth” is OBSOLETE; and Jesus not having given “all truth” is REDUNDANT, though he is to be honored. Thus it is the Comforter, who is shown to be Mohammad, is now the only name “under heaven” whereby man is saved. If Jesus was the only name under heaven through which one is saved there would be no need for another Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and “abide for ever”).
While one is free to choose his ‘faith,” belief in God is to be based on ‘reason”–(Isaiah 1:18) and fact/truth–(John 8:32). And the Divine truth is, Jesus was sent only for Jews to give them the Good news about the coming of a Comforter whom all are to follow, and “There is no God but Allah, Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
1. “Son of God” belief is an imitation of paganism–(Qur’an 9:30); Muhammad Ali notes: “when St. Paul saw that the Jews would on no account accept Jesus Christ as a messenger of God, he introduced the pagan doctrine of sonship of God into the Christian religion, so that it might become more acceptable to the pagans.” And Paul “was considered to be a traitor to Jesus’s thought by the latter’s family and by the apostles who had stayed in Jerusalem in the circle around James. Paul created Christianity at the expense of those whom Jesus had gathered around him to spread his teachings.” (See Allāh and Jesus or Paul).
2. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din notes: “The sign of the Cross also is not of Christian origin. It does not date from the crucifixion;” “the cross in Christendom signifies the same as did the Egyptian cross –the sign of new life brought by the crucifixion. In Ireland a similar cross has been discovered, with a crucified effigy, but it is the effigy of a Persian prince and not that of the Nazarene, as the head of the crucified bears a Parthian coronet, and not the crown of thorns; which identifies it with the Mithraic cult, originally from Persia”–(The Sources of Christianity, p.50. The Sources of Christianity may be obtained by contacting www.muslim.org).
KK also reveals that, like the ‘cross” the “fish” also is rooted in paganism: “The Gospel cannot explain the why and how of the Fish symbol, excepting that Jesus often ate fish. But the sun-scripture is the real explanation. The sun passes the Zodiacal sign Pisces –the Fish– in February, and if the date of the Epiphany is in February, Christ, as a Sun-God, must be symbolized by the Fish.” (Ibid. p. 51).
