Our site frequently carries statements concerning various Christian beliefs and practices and will be continuing to do so. These articles discuss false beliefs in Christianity and additions that have entered the faith at a later date that are incompatible with the Qur’an and stem from misinterpretation of the Gospel. It also sets out the true aspects of these. However, in reading and examining the articles in question it is very important for our Christian brothers to fully grasp their true purpose and wisdom.
The aim behind these articles is not to run disparage Christians, to invalidate the whole of the Gospel or to do away with Christianity entirely. The true Gospel is praised in the Qur’an and confirmed as a holy book given to the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). As revealed in verse 136 of Surat al-Baqara, Muslims say, " Say, ‘We believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Tribes, and what Moses and Jesus were given, and what all the prophets were given by their Lord. We do not differentiate between any of them. We are Muslims submitted to Him’.”
For that reason, and just like Christians, Muslims have a responsibility to abide by the true provisions in the Gospel and to praise the wise contents thereof. In that sense, these articles aimed at Christians are a call to honesty, to the truth, to the true Gospel. IT IS TO ENABLE CHRISTIANS to be freed from the false practices and superstitious subsequent additions that are nowhere in the true Gospel revealed to the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) AND TO ENABLE THEM TO BECOME TRUE CHRISTIANS WHO LIVE BY THE PROVISIONS OF THE TRUE GOSPEL.
WE MUSLIMS WILL ALSO WANT CHRISTIANS TO BE TRULY DEVOUT. But, as required by Allah’s commandment in the Qur’an to "enjoin the right and forbid the wrong" (Surah Al ’Imran, 104), we also have a responsibility to lead Christians away from the errors they have unwittingly fallen into and to show them the truth. For that reason, and like all believers, it is of the greatest importance for Christians to be warned against these dangers and called to the true judgments set out by Allah, and to reason and logic.
Almighty Allah speaks in the Qur’an of the existence of the People of the Book (Christians and Jews). According to the Qur’an, the People of the Book are true believers placed under Muslims’ protection. Muslims therefore have a duty to ensure the People of the Book abide by the provisions of the Torah and the Gospel and to enable them to become even more sincere and devout by showing them the truth. That is what we are trying to do here.
The articles you will be reading discuss beliefs that have entered the true faith of Christianity over the years and which we are warned against as dangers in the Qur’an. In setting out the verses of the Qur’an that speak of these error, evidence will be provided that will free the Gospel, Christians’ own Holy Book, from these errors. As with all beliefs, there may be those Christians who adopt a radical approach to matters, who are fixed in their attachment to these beliefs we discuss and who have a prejudiced perspective regarding the Qur’an. Our advice to the Christians in question is to read the articles here objectively and to evaluate what is discussed through a new, rational perspective. This will be instrumental, not in them turning away from the provisions of the Gospel but, on the contrary, IN THEIR EVALUATING THE GOSPEL IN A MORE HONEST MANNER AND LIVING EVEN MORE PERFECTLY BY THE GOSPEL.
