Excerpt from ’The Book of Monotheism: The Interpretation of Surah Al Tawheed’ By: Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh):

 

He is Allah, The One, The Indivisible, and everything else is His Creation

Allah (swt) has responded in the Noble Qur’an to those who have said that Allah (swt) has a son whom separated from Him, or a son whom was born from Him, or a son whom was produced from Him, meaning an absolute Divine whom was produced from an Absolute Divine.  Or those who say that the created human being can elevate/rise [in degrees and ranks] until he becomes connected to the Absolute Divine, meaning [until] the truth/reality of this human being becomes the Absolute Divine; because he has united with the Absolute Divine.  And according to their thinking, as such, the Absolute Divine has come down in the Human Nature or the Body, or among people as a human being from them, and that this human being is the son of Allah.

And truth is, even though this doctrinal belief that has been adopted by the non-working is false, Allah (swt), because of His Mercy, has addressed them and spoken to them even regarding the details of the explanation of this belief, so you find Him (swt) separating for them and clarifying for them the places of flaws/confusions [which are present] in their belief.

Allah (swt) said: {He is the Originator of the Heavens and the Earth.  How can He have a son when He has had no mate? He has created everything and He has full knowledge of all things} 1

{How can He have a son when He has had no mate?}: And this complete refutation by which Allah has spoken to them cannot be rejected by any form or image, since its meaning is: You say that Allah (swt) has a son, and that this son is an Absolute Divine (meaning that this son is Absolute Perfection and Absolute Richness and never needs other than himself).  So if you say that the son was produced from Him (swt) alone (meaning that he was produced from one Absolute Divine Whom had no mate), then this means that the son must be exactly identical to the father – regardless of the fact that the Simple Absolute Truth is impossible to [have the attribute of] plurality.  So what is the meaning and what is the wisdom from this production if there is not any distinction or difference or dissimilitude [between the Father and the Son] that could be imagined? So are you saying that the Father is not wise because he produced or gave birth to a son whose production has no benefit for Him (swt) or for any other than Him?!

And if you say that there is a difference or distinction or dissimilitude, - as some Christians declare today that the Three Hypostases (The Three Persons: "The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit") are distinguishable [from each other] - then this [sets forth the fact of the] inevitability of the presence of a Second Divine {…..mate…..} in order that the son may be produced from two, and thus, the son does not become identical to any of them; because he has been produced from both of them together.  Therefore, are you saying that there is a Second Divine (the mate) who has preceded the son??!! 2

Thus, know that if you say that there is a son, then you must as well say that there is a Second Divine (the mate) before the son, or else, how could you say that there is a son (the Absolute Divine which was produced from Him (swt)) without the presence of the Second Divine (the mate) with Him (swt) from the beginning.  And the presence of the Absolute Second Divine (the mate) with Him (swt) from the beginning is impossible; because the Absolute Divine is a Simple Absolute Truth and Reality, and [the Absolute Divine] cannot be plural {How can He have a son when He has had no mate?}

And Allah, the Exalted, has said: {Never did Allah take unto Himself any son nor is there any God other than He.  [Had there been any other gods] each god would have taken his creatures away with him, and each would have rushed to overpower the other.  Glory be to Allah from all that they describe Him with!} 3

Meaning, verily, if you put/rank what you have imagined, in regards to the presence of the Three Hypostases (or the three Origins), in the following way; that you say that there is a father (Allah (swt)), and the Second Absolute Divine Mate (the son), then was produced from them the third Absolute Divine (The Third Hypostasis) the Holy Spirit, then [what you would be saying is that] there is a Second Divine with Allah (swt) from the beginning.  So, is there a distinction between them or not?  Meaning, are both one/the same?

Whoever decides that they both are one and the same then he shall be faced by the previous refutation; because the one produced from them is typical to each one of them.  And whoever chooses that there is a distinction between them, then the Absolute Divinity (of the Divinity of the Second Divine) would be negated; because of the shortages that fall upon it; because distinction is not present except by Absolute Perfection, {…..and each would have rushed to overpower the other. Glory be to Allah from all that they describe Him with}

And the non-working scholars, because they have failed/reversed their nature and turned upside down, they have said that Allah has a son, Glorified and Exalted is He from all which they describe Him with, {Behold, it is one of their fabrications that they say: ۞ “Allah has given birth” and verily they are liars} 4

For if they had returned to the nature of Allah and thought about the favors/bounties of Allah, they would have saved themselves from this clear torment and they would have avoided speaking of that which they do not know.  And the speech of man about which he does not know is lies, {verily they are liars}.  He, the Exalted has said, {And also to warn those who say: “Allah has taken to Himself a son” ۞ A thing about which they do have no knowledge, neither them nor their ancestors.  Dreadful is the word that comes out of their mouths. What they utter is merely a lie} 5

Also, Allah (swt) has refuted and invalidated the principle of the plurality of the Absolute Divine from its root, whatever way the belief in it was.  He, the Exalted, said,  {They said: Allah has taken a son.  Glory be to Him.  He is the Rich/Self-Sufficient.  His is all that is in the Heavens and all that is in the Earth.  Have you any authority to support (that Allah has taken a son)?  Do you ascribe to Allah something of which you have no knowledge? } 6

{They said:  Allah has taken a son.  Glory be to Him.  He is the Rich/Self-Sufficient}:  And the principle of this refutation/invalidation, upon everyone who has ascribed plurality to the Absolute Divine – whether with son-ship or by any other form which could be imagined by the one who has gone astray – is that Allah has placed in the nature of the human being that which he can distinguish with between Wisdom and Foolishness, {And imbued it (the human nature) with (the consciousness of) its evil and its piety} 7  So whoever uses this scale shall come to the judgment that [the act of] ascribing plurality to The Divine without the presence of a distinguishing [factor] is foolishness and lacks Wisdom.  And therefore, there remains nothing except saying that there is distinction [between them], and this is refuted with one Word: {Glory be to Him. He is the Rich/Self-Sufficient}, for distinction in regards to The Divine cannot be except in regards to Perfection, so the poverty and shortcoming/shortages of those other than Him becomes clear, thus saying that other than Him could be an Absolute Divine becomes refuted.

As in regards to the matter of the rising of Man [in degrees], then verily, Allah has created the human being and placed in him the nature which qualifies him to rise and elevate until he becomes the Divine Names of Allah and the image of Allah and the Manifestation of Allah and Allah in Creation.  However, no matter how high he rises/elevates [in degree and rank] he can never be an Absolute Divine or an Absolute Rich One, rather he stays a created being whom is poor in regards to Allah (swt), {Its oil almost glows even if untouched by fire, Light upon Light, Allah guides to His Light whomever He wills} 8  [“Almost” glows], not that it glows from itself for it to be an Absolute Divine, for whoever other than Him is His creation and poor in regards to Him (swt), {It does not befit Allah to take for Himself a son.  Glory be to Him.  When He decrees a thing He only says: “Be” and it is} 9

And the previously presented refutations which have come in the Noble Qur’an is enough to the one who has listened while being a witness/present in mind (meaning the one who has listened carefully).

As for their saying that He is One, Indivisible, along with what they say about the Three Hypostases (The Three Persons: “The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit”) which according to their belief, are distinguishable from each other and independent in their essence and they dispatch each other, and their saying about the presence of a relationship between them as the relationship of son-hood and father-hood….etc, that is foolish silly talk and they know that it is as such, 10 or else how could the Indivisible Oneness gather with His Plurality and Divisibility and Distinction between His parts, even if they do not call them parts?

And if we turn away from all what has been presented, then still, clarifying their falsehood does not require more than the [following] clarification, if they were among those who understand and use their mind, and that clarification is:

Indeed, Allah is Light with no Darkness in it, and all the worlds of Creation is Light mixed with Darkness and beings which have appeared by the Manifestation of His (swt) Light in the Darknesses.  And therefore, it is not possible that one considers that Allah has come in a created being or appeared in a created being a complete appearance in the Worlds of Creation – as they claim with Jesus and the Holy Spirit - because [if this was the case then] this means that [the worlds of creation] would not remain, rather it would disintegrate/disappear and what remains would be Light which has no darkness in it, meaning that no Creation would remain, rather only Allah (swt) remains, and He is Light with no darkness in it.  And for that reason we have said and repeated over and over that Muhammad (pbuh & his family) flaps between The Divine and between the “I” and humanity/state of being Human.  And I have confirmed this in order that no deluded person imagines that Allah – who is Light with no Darkness in it – comes in the Worlds of Creation, He is far Exalted and Greater than that. And the matter is clear and obvious, for the meaning of (the appearance of Light which has no darkness in it in the World of Creation a complete appearance) is its disappearance/disintegration and extinction, and remains for it neither a name, nor a description nor a meaning, rather no one and nothing remains except Allah, the Light which has no Darkness in it, Far Greater and Exalted is He.

2 - And this also is an innate and intellectual matter, and that is, nothing different or distinct from the Simple Absolute Truth can separate from it, and there can not be in it any divisions or parts or origins or distinguishable/distinctive Hypostases as they call it; because if that was the case, then it would mean that it is a compound Truth and not a simple one.  And Composition is indication towards poverty and need, and Composition negates/denies Richness of it, and therefore, in order for something which is distinct from the the Simple Absolute Truth/Reality to separate from it, there must be another Simple Absolute Truth/Reality, and that is impossible, because the Absolute Truth/Reality is one and can not be plural.

What is the Holy Spirit?

 

 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Purification or Infallibility.

So if the servant is dedicated with his intention to Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, and wants the face of Allah, Allah would love him and Allah would assign for him an Angel that causes him to enter into all good and takes him out of all evil, and leads him towards the Noble Morals, and and the Holy Spirit would become an intermediary to transfer knowledge to the human being that he [the Holy Spirit] has been entrusted with.

And the Holy Spirits are many and not [just] one.

And the one that was with Jesus (pbuh) and with the Prophets is not like the one that was with Muhammad (pbuh & his family), and Ali (pbuh), and Fatima (pbuh), and the Imams (pbut), and this [Holy Spirit] is the Greatest Holy Spirit; which was not sent down to anyone except Muhammad (pbuh & his family), and after his death it was passed to Ali (pbuh), and then to the Imams (pbut), and then after them [it shall be passed] to the twelve Mahdis.

[Narrated] from Abi Baseer he said: “I asked Aba Abdullah (pbuh) regarding the saying of Allah, the Blessed, the Most High: {And we have inspired you with a Spirit by our command, you haven’t known what the book is, neither the Imaan (faith)} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Shura 42:52}  So he (pbuh) said, ‘It is a creation from the creation of Allah, the Glorified and Exalted, that is greater than Gabriel and Michael (pbut), it was with the Prophet of Allah (pbuh & his family), informing him and enforcing him, and it is with the Imams after him.’

[Narrated] from Abi Baseer he said: “I asked Aba Abdullah (pbuh) regarding the saying of Allah, the Blessed, the Most High: {And they ask you concerning the spirit. Say, "The spirit is the affair of my Lord."} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Isra 17:85}.  So he (pbuh) said,‘It is a creation greater than Gabriel and Michael (pbut), it was with the Prophet of Allah (pbuh & his family), informing him of news and it is with the Imams and it is from the Kingdoms of Heaven.’” Al-Kafi: Volume 1, page 273.

[Narrated] from Abi Hamza he said: “I asked Aba Abdullah (pbuh) regarding knowledge, is it the knowledge learned by a man of knowledge from the mouths of men, or is it in the Book with you, you read it and then learn from it?  He (pbuh) said, ‘The matter is greater than that, and imperative, have you not heard Allah’s, the Glorified and Exalted, saying, {And we have inspired you with a Spirit by our command, you haven’t known what the book is, neither the Imaan (faith)} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Shura 42:52}   And then he (pbuh) said, ‘What do your companions say regarding this verse, do they agree that he was in a state of not knowing what the Book is and the faith?’  So I said, ‘I do not know, may I be your ransom, what they are saying.’  So he (pbuh) said to me, ‘Indeed, he was at a state of not knowing what the book and faith are until Allah, the Almighty, sent the Spirit which He mentioned in the Book, so when Allah inspired it to him, he knew by it the knowledge and understanding, and it is the Spirit that Allah, the Almighty, gives to whomever He wills, so if He gives it to a servant, He has taught him understanding.’” Al-Kafi: Volume 1, page 274.

So the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (pbuh & his family) when he was sent down to this physical world in order to begin his second test after the first test in the Atom World (Tharr World), he was veiled with the physical body, but when he was dedicated to Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, a kind of dedication/sincerity that the Earth has never known the likes of, Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, loved him and assigned for him the Greatest Holy Spirit, and he was the winner of this race in this world likewise he was the winner of the race in the first test in the Atom World (Tharr World).

And the Greatest Holy Spirit was with the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family), so when [the veil] was opened for him, the Greatest Holy Spirit transferred from the Messenger to the Prince of the Believers (pbuh), because the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) was sufficed with the enforcement which came from the opening [more] than the enforcement of the Greatest Holy Spirit.

And thus Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) shall not need the Greatest Holy Spirit during the time of appearance, for verily:- it [the veil] was opened to him during the time of the smaller occultation, so the Greatest Holy Spirit shall be transferred to the first Mahdi.  So just as “ourselves and yourselves” is applied on the Prophet of Allah (pbuh & his family), and Ali (pbuh), likewise it is applied here on Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh), and the first Mahdi (pbuh), from the aspect of the robe which was worn by the Messenger of Allah and the Prince of the Believers, and it is:- the Greatest Holy Spirit.

Otherwise, they are not equal except from this aspect, for the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) is better than Ali (pbuh), and likewise Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) is better than the first Mahdi, and the equality [between them] from this aspect is the aspect of dress, and it is the Greatest Holy Spirit, which the first Mahdi has worn, for verily he needs enforcement and the opening has not occurred for him.

Whereas, the opening occurred for Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh), so his enforcement is from the opening, because there are times where nothing remains except for Allah, the One, the Conqueror. As for the first Mahdi the opening has not occurred for him, so because of that he is aided/enforced by the Greatest Holy Spirit, and one should supplicate for him [by saying]:- “that he worships You and does not associate anything with You” meaning, that he does not see even the “I” that exists between his sides, so that he may not see nor know except Allah, for worship is knowing.

Worship You means Know You, and not associate anything with You [means] not know other than You, [not] even himself, meaning that the Clear Opening occurs to him.

And also the companions of the Qa’im, other than the first Mahdi, are aided/enforced by the Holy Spirit, however, a Holy spirit, [and] not the Greatest Holy Spirit, and each one according to [their degree]. For that reason they are made Infallibles: “Your covenant is in your palm.” [1]“Allah places His hand on the heads of the worshipers, so their minds will be gathered by it and their dreams will completed by Him..” [2]

The Supremacy of Allah in the Torah

 

Reflections with Moses (pbuh) and his vicegerent Joshua (Yashu’) (pbuh)

 

Moses (pbuh) applies the Supremacy of Allah upon the sons of Israel:

What did Moses (pbuh) do with those who believed in him and accepted him, other than emigrating with them from the land of the tyrant, in order to apply the supremacy of Allah on another land:

Gospel of Exodus – Chapter 7:

(15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning;… 16 And thou shalt say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go17 that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear….) [1]

And what is mean by (serve me) here is that they would have a godly ruler whom they would obey and follow his example and would establish in them the supremacy of Allah, otherwise the acts of worship such as prayers, fasting and the likes of that do not require the emigration of the people, for they in general can be performed everywhere. And Joseph (pbuh) and the family of Jacob (pbuh) in his time worshiped Allah in the land of Egypt while the Godly ruler who was Joseph (pbuh). Moreover the believers from Bani (sons of) Israel and from them Moses and Aaron (pbut) used to establish prayers and perform their acts of worship in the land of Egypt all those years before the emigration.

So it clear now that what is meant by the worship that Moses (pbuh) was demanding was the application of the supremacy of Allah and in the book of Exodus chapter 19 is the clarification of that, that the goal of the exodus was none other than the supremacy of Allah:

Gospel of Exodus – chapter 19:

(1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt… 3 And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles ’ wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant , then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests , and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel…)

Moses (pbuh) commands in the last days of his message the supremacy of Allah:

Moses (pbuh) in the end of his message indicated to his people very clearly that the law, the judgment and the ruler ship are to Allah and that He Exalted is the One who appoints the judge, the ruler and the ruler ship:

Gospel of Deuteronomy – chapter 17:

(8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose; 9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment: 10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee: 11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left. 12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel. 13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously. 14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee , whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.)

About seeking verdicts and applying the divine law, Moses (pbuh) directed his people and the believers to come toward the judge or the priest appointed by Allah. And the judge meant here is from the appointed prophets by Allah Exalted and Almighty or appointed by the Prophets (pbut), not the judges who appoint themselves or get appointed by the people who are known for their injustice and are famous for taking in bribes. For that reason He said: (…and unto the judge that shall be in those days….) meaning the judge whom He shall appoint and send in those days:

Gospel of Judges – chapter 2:

(18 And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge…)

Moses (pbuh) clarified to his people in his commandments that came before that the king also has to be appointed by Allah:

(…Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee , whom the LORD thy God shall choose:…)

And not every king the people chose is chosen by Allah:

(15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee……. 36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone) Deuteronomy -chapter 28.

And that is also what manifests clearly in the story of the group of believers who came to Moses (pbuh) in the times of the last “judge” and successor of Allah, Ismael (pbuh), (or Samuel (pbuh) as is his name in the Torah) when they asked him to appoint to them a king whom would go out with them to fight in the cause of Allah. So he appointed to them by the command of Allah “Taloot” (pbuh) (Saol as is his name in the Torah) [2] then he appointed after him David (pbuh) by the command of Allah, a caliph to Allah to stand his stance. And the request of that group from the prophet of Allah Ismael to appoint for them a king is evidence and a compelling argument for the doctrine of God’s governance or supremacy.

Joshua pbuh (Yousha’) calls for the supremacy of Allah:

Joshua (or Yusha’ as is his name in the Torah) is the vicegerent of Moses (pbuh) who was calling for the supremacy of Allah and was reminding his people that it is an obligation that they obey him, as he is the one appointed by Allah and with a statement from Moses (pbuh). He is the executor of the jurisprudence of Allah and his commands. His people acknowledge that to him:

Gospel of Joshua – chapter 1:

(1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying…… 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying…. 12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, ……….. 16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses. 18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.)

Glad tidings of establishing the supremacy of Allah upon the Earth in the End Times:

The prophets and the messengers (pbut) came, giving glad tidings of a day when the supremacy of Allah upon the earth would be applied and the divine just state would be established in the End Times, that time known by the reign of Satan and the tyrants. The prophets(pbut) have clarified that the one whom shall establish it is the Savior and the redeemer. And the Torah is full of such texts which will be examined when looking at the proofs Sayyed Ahmad Al-Hassan (pbuh) brings forth from the wills of the prophets (pbut). Here, we mention some examples from the New Testament:

· John (pbuh) gives glad tidings of the establishment of the supremacy of Allah upon the earth in the End Times:

(1:3 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2:3 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight) – Mathew – chapter 3

· And after John (pbuh), Jesus (pbuh) gives glad tidings of the establishment of the supremacy of Allah:

In the Gospel of Mathew – chapter 4:

(17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand….. 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.)

· And Jesus (pbuh) commanded his disciples and the believers in him who would come after him to pray for the coming of the divine rulership upon the earth:

In the Gospel of Mathew – Chapter 6:

(9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.)

And after Jesus, the glad tiding continued on of the coming and approaching of the divine just state through the messengers of Jesus whom he charged to do so:

In the Gospel of Mathew – Chapter 10:

(5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded themsaying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.)

We shall suffice with that much of texts. They are very many so whomever wants more shall go over the Torah and the Bible.

We turn the Torah and the Gospels: Have the prophetic messengers used as proof, their knowledge and the fact that they speak wisdom or not?

 

The Prophetic messengers using knowledge as proof in the Torah

There are numerous texts in which the Prophets (pbut) use knowledge and wisdom: Moses (pbuh) and his wisdom, Joshua (pbuh), David (pbuh) and Solomon (pbuh), etc. … and in the following two examples of Joseph (pbuh) and Daniel (pbuh).

 

Joseph the Prophet (pbuh) uses as proof his knowledge and wisdom in regards to managing the lands and the people

The caliph of Allah Joseph (pbuh) interprets visions with what Allah taught him and uses as proof his wisdom in managing the Economy of Egypt and its politics.

Gospel of Genesis – chapter 41:

(1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years that Pharaoh dreamed: ….. 8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh……) until he called for Joseph (pbuh) by the advice of one of the prisoners who were with Joseph.

And Allah Almighty has made this visions as a reason by which the rightfulness of Joseph (pbuh) was revealed and his supremacy over all the sages and scholars, as he interpreted it and proved that he is a messenger of Allah. And that his knowledge is a proof of his connection with Allah:

Gospel of Genesis – chapter 41:

(15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. 16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace) 

Joseph (pbuh) continues his proof and shows that the knowledge which was given to him by Allah is not only limited to interpreting visions, rather it included his great management and political abilities:

Gospel of Genesis – chapter 41:

(33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt)

And he reveals part of that knowledge by presenting the plan to manage the economy and policy of the country so pharaoh may know as well as all those who were present that they are facing a knowledgeable wise man sent by Allah:

Gospel of Genesis – chapter 41:

(37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. 38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? 39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, For as much as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: 40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled….)

Daniel the prophet (pbuh) uses as proof his knowledge and him baffling the scholars and elders of his time

Allah Almighty and Exalted shows the king of Iraq a vision so that he may find out about the knowledge of Prophet Daniel (pbuh) and about him being connected to Allah.

The Gospel of Daniel – chapter 2:

(1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him 2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers , and the sorcerer’s, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams….)

And none of the scholars of the wise men were able to interpret his dream for him and explain it:

(…12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon. 13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain…)

Until Daniel (pbuh) came and used his knowledge as proof and showed that the vision is from Allah and its knowledge is from Allah and having that knowledge is proof that Daniel (pbuh) is connected to Him Almighty and sent from Him, and the king of Iraq testified to him with such:

(27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days…………. 45 …..the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure 46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshiped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him. 47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.)

Jesus (pbuh) shows his knowledge and wisdom as proof.

Jesus (pbuh) uses as proof his knowledge and wisdom that was displayed while he was debating the objectors, answering their questions and their attempts to try him, and here are some texts from the Bible:

The Gospel of Mathew – chapter 13:

(53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. 54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?)

The Gospel of Mark – chapter 1:

(21 And they went into Caper’na-um; and immediately on the sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught. 22 And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes.)

The Gospel of Mark – chapter 10:

(1 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judæa by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again. 2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. And he answered and said unto them…)

Jesus (pbuh) clarified also that knowledge is an independent proof of the rightfulness of the Prophets (pbut) and that the miracles may differ and they are not according to peoples’ desires.

The Gospel of Luke – chapter 4:

(14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all….22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? 23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. 24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed , saving Naaman the Syrian28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. 30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way, 31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. 32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.)

And the texts are so many from the Bible. But we shall suffice with that much.

The Anticipated Reformer is a call to all

 

God has dispatched the prophets and messengers as bearers of glad tidings and as warners for people to promote justice, fairness, monotheism, and the worship of God in this Earth according to God’s will. And because the Lord is one, His command to His Messengers is one as well.

Prophet David said to the entire congregation: (O Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this forever in the deepest thoughts of your people, and let their hearts be fixed and true to you)  – Chr1 [29:18]

The command of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is itself the command of David, Solomon and Jesus.

Moses said to his people: (Let the words which I have said to you today go deep into your hearts, and give orders to your children to do every word of this law) Dt [32:46].

And Jesus came to proceed with what those prophets were commanded and that is calling to the monotheism of God and submitting to His commandments.

Jesus said: (Let there be no thought that I have come to put an end to the law or the prophets. I have not come to put an end to them, but to proceed. The truth I say unto you, till heaven and earth come to an end, not the smallest letter or part of a letter will in any way be taken from the law, till all things are done) Mt [5:17-18]

So the real commander of practicing the Divine law is God, and what He commanded Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Solomon, Moses and Jesus is itself what He commanded the Seal of the Prophets Muhammad, the Most High said in the Quran: {He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus – to establish the religion and not be divided therein. Difficult for those who associate others with God is that to which you invite them. God chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back [to Him]} – Ash-Shura [42:13].

The above scriptures clarified that the concern of those successors of God is one and they do not differ, as their God is the same, and so is their religion, which is to surrender to God. All of them guide us to God, and act under God’s command. The truth which they all call for is the same, and their purpose is the same; it is to prepare people for the Minor Judgment.

And because every call from the calls of the prophets has a special feature, and God, Glory to Him and May He be exalted, wants a certain thing from it to convey it to His worshipers, we find Jesus the Messiah coming with his message, which was the most important message before the dispatch of the sealing Prophet Muhammad, and it was the last preparatory stage by the means of the prophets from the lineage of Isaac, the son of Abraham.

And Jesus wanted to put forth the spiritual meanings and establish the basis for it and covey his message to his people by giving examples through his journey of teaching and spreading the call which he was charged with. However, this has an essential role in the life of the Rising Mahdi or the Savior; because the savior represents the beginning of the journey of returning to God, he is actually the turning point and the fruit of all the calls of the prophets. The Savior is here to build the Divine Justice Land and to establish the religion of the One and Only God, so who are the workers of Lord that will help him to do so?

The Savior Ahmad Al-Hassan said: “I did not come seeking servants. Nor did I come for people to see me so that I can be a veil between them and God. I came to demolish the structure of falsehood and build the structure of truth, so help me do so, may God have mercy upon you.”

Let’s turn to the Torah and see did the prophets appoint their successors or did they not?

The scriptures that clarify that the prophets and messengers have appointed their successors are so many to whoever is after the truth and here are some examples:

Moses (pbuh) appoints (the Caliphate) to Joshua (pbuh) as a successor and a leader and commands his people to obey him:

Gospel of Deuteronomy – Chapter 31:

(And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation. 15 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.)

David (pbuh) makes a will to appoint Solomon (pbuh)as his successor and clarifies to his people that he is the appointed proof of God after him and demands from them their obedience to Solomon:

Gospel of Kings 1 – chapter 1:

(And king David said, Call me Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada. And they came before the king. 33 The king also said unto them, Take with you the servants of your lord, and cause Solomon my son to ride upon mine own mule, and bring him down to Gihon: 34 And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and blow ye with the trumpet, and say, God save king Solomon. 35 Then ye shall come up after him, that he may come and sit upon my throne; for he shall be king in my stead: and I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah. 36 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada answered the king, and said, Amen: the LORD God of my lord the king say so too. 37 As the LORD hath been with my lord the king, even so be he with Solomon, and make his throne greater than the throne of my lord king David.)

Gospel of Kings 1 – chapter 2:

(Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying2 I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man; 3 And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:4 That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel 5.)

A messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad

A question sent to Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh regarding Surat as-Saff (The Ranks) 61:6, his response and an excerpt from the soon-to-be-released English translation of The 13th Disciple.


Question: When Jesus pbuh said, in the Holy Quran, {And when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, "O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad."} Surat as-Saff (The Ranks) 61:6, is that statement from Jesus pbuh included in the Gospel in an altered or partial form, or is it missing?

Answer: In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Intensely Merciful.
And Praise be unto Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and may the prayers and peace of Allah be upon Muhammad and his progeny, the Imams and the Mahdis.

There is a book in which I clarified the matter of mentioning Muhammad pbuhap in both testaments, and the ansar, may Allah protect them, are supposed to publish it in the coming days. And Allah willing they will translate it for all of you so that you can benefit from it. And I hope that you do not forget me in your dua.

And Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings

Ahmad al-Hassan
Jamadi the second, 1433 Hijri.

 

Below are details from the committee:

 

In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Intensely Merciful. And praise be unto Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

Allah says, {"Those who follow the messenger, the Ummi prophet whom they find written what they have of the Torah and the Gospel who enjoins on them what is right and forbids for them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good and prohibits the evil for them and relieves them of the burden and the shackles which were upon them so they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him, it is those who will be successful."} Surat al-Araf (The Heights) 7:157

{And when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, "O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad." But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, "This is obvious magic."} Surat as-Saff (The Ranks) 61:6.

These Quranic verses show the argumentation of the Prophet Muhammad pbuhap by texts which mention him by name from the previous prophets and messengers. They are not literal translations of what is written in the Old and New Testament which are between our hands today, and the text and the will, accompanied by the knowledge and the wisdom and the call and the demand of the allegiance of Allah, is the divine law which Allah swt placed for mankind by which they can recognize the successors pbut, and Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh clarified this in more than one place.

And regarding the issue of taking the text or the will as a proof, two important things should be paid attention to which are: First, the divine text which personifies the proof of Allah swt can never be claimed by anyone besides its rightful owner or else how could we ever consider the proof?

Second, the text is not necessarily literal, rather it is symbolic in many cases, and the man to whom this text belongs interprets it. And an example of this is the text of the Old Testament which refers to Jesus pbuh, there is not a single text with his direct name in it. For example, in the Gospel, Jesus pbuh says,

45 "Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” (John 5:45-47)

So where did Moses speak about Jesus and did he ever pronounce him by name? Moses mentioned Jesus pbuh the same way he mentioned Muhammad pbuh,

1 This is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the people of Israel before his death. He said, 2 “The LORD came from Sinai and dawned from Seir upon us; he shone forth from Mount Paran; he came from the ten thousands of holy ones, with flaming fire at his right hand. 3 Yes, he loved his people, all his holy ones were in his hand; so they followed in your steps, receiving direction from you, (Deuteronomy 33:1-3)

The one who came from Seir is Jesus pbuh and the person who came from Paran is Muhammad pbuhap and Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh wrote a lot regarding this issue and he clarified that it is a text mentioning Jesus pbuh as well as Muhammad pbuhap. And there are a lot of examples and we will suffice by this amount Allah willing, as it is enough.

And there is a book by Imam Ahmad al-Hassan that will be released soon Allah willing and it has an answer to your question with more details. And it would be fine if I transmit to you some of his blessed words from this book, perhaps they will benefit you. The Imam a.s. said,

((..Is it required that there be a promise with the direct name or the symbol? I believe that the issue of the absence of Jesus’ name in the Old Testament, as a promised one, is a foregone conclusion. Thus nothing remains but the symbol.And we clarified symbolic texts from the Old Testament, and that their interpretation refers to the Messenger Muhammad pbuhap, they also interpreted symbolic texts as referring to Jesus pbuh. And before showing some of these texts, I say, We clarified the evidence for the Proof or Successor of Allah in His earth or the sent prophet and we proved it by the intellect, wisdom, and the texts from the Torah, Gospel and Quran.So whoever requests the truth from the people of the Book, from the Jews and the Christians, should observe the law of recognizing the successor which we clarified, and its three clauses: the will or the text, and the knowledge and wisdom, and the banner or the supremacy of Allah, and let him observe whether the intellect and wisdom say otherwise...)) 13th Disciple

And after Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh clarified this. he gave examples of the texts in the Bible which mention Muhammad pbuhap, so he pbuh said,

((...And this is an example of the text that mentions the Messenger of Allah Muhammad pbuhap in the Old Testament:

Genesis Chapter 21: 14 So Abraham rose early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba. 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the child under one of the bushes. 16 Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot, for she said, “Let me not look on the death of the child.” And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept. 17 And God heard the voice of the boy, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. 18 Up! Lift up the boy, and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make him into a great nation.” 19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink. 20 And God was with the boy, and he grew up. He lived in the wilderness and became an expert with the bow. 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran, and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

And I do not believe one of intellect would say that according to Allah the disbelievers, mushriks and worshippers of idols are a great nation, or that Allah considers the multitudes to be a great nation. So the intended by a great nation, and the greatness belongs to Allah swt, is the prophets and the successors pbut, meaning that the intended by the great nation of Ishmael pbuh is prophets and successors pbut from his lineage, and those are Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad pbut in particular, the successors of Allah in His earth.This is an example of the text that mentions the Messenger of Allah Muhammad pbuhap in the Old and New Testament (The Torah and the Gospel):

1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to Shigionoth. 2 O LORD, I have heard the report of you, and your work, O LORD, do I fear. In the midst of the years revive it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy. 3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His splendor covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. 4 His brightness was like the light; rays flashed from his hand; and there he veiled his power. 5 Before him went pestilence, and plague followed at his heels.(Habakkuk 3:1-5)

The meaning: {God came from Teman}: meaning Allah came from Yemen.and {The Holy One from Mount Paran} meaning the Holy One came from Mecca.

And Allah is far above coming from the sky, let alone from the earth! Because coming and going requires movement and therefore occurrence, and thus negating the absolute divinity, so it cannot be considered that the one who comes from Teman or Yemen is Allah swt, or that the one who comes from Paran is the Holy One swt; for this as well as the other attributes such as the hand, which Allah is far above.

4 His brightness was like the light; rays flashed from his hand; and there he veiled his power. 5 Before him went pestilence, and plague followed at his heels.

Rather the one who comes is Abdullah [the servant of Allah —Trans.] Muhammad pbuhap and his progeny pbut after him, as they are from Mecca, and Muhammad and his progeny pbut are Yamanis as well. So the coming of Muhammad pbuhap is the coming of Allah because Muhammad is Allah among the creation, and Muhammad is the appearance of Allah in Paran as I previously clarified in more than one place.

And the fact that Teman is Yemen has been mentioned even in the Bible in the words of Jesus pbuh when he described the Queen of Yemen as the Queen of the South ( التيمن ~ Teman).

The Book of Matthew — Chapter twelve:

42 The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.

The Book of Luke — Chapter eleven:

31 The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.))

And Allah willing, after the book is published you can look into the further details.
Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,
and praise be to Allah Lord of the worlds.

What is the Content And Mission Of Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh)?!

“Jesus (A.S) said: ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God’

And I, the slave of God, tell you: With food, the son of Adam shall die, and with the word of God, he shall live. My mission is similar to Noah’s (A.S), Abraham’s (A.S), Moses’ (A.S), Jesus’ (A.S), and to Mohammad’s (PBUH). My mission is to spread monotheism (belief that there is only one God) in every place on this Earth. The purpose of the Prophets and Executors is my own purpose and to explain the Torah, the Bible and the Quran, and whatever you disagreed upon. To explain the deviation of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim scholars and their secession from the Law of God, and their violation of Prophets’ recommendations (A.S) My will is the will and volition of God (to Whom be ascribed all perfection and majesty); for the people of Earth to crave for nothing but God’s will; to overwhelm the Earth with justice and fairness, just like it is filled with tyranny and oppression; to feed the hungry and shelter the poor; to bring joy to orphans after their prolonged sadness; to fulfill the widows’ material needs with honor and dignity; and to achieve the most important thing in the Law of God; justice, mercy and honesty.”

The Look Alike of Jesus (pbuh)

 

Question 179: What is the story of Jesus (PBUH)? And how did he appear to them [to be killed and crucified] according to His saying: “And because of their saying: We have killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they did not kill him for certain” (4:157)?

 

The Answer: In the name of Allah the Merciful, the Intensely Merciful,

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. O Allah send your blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis.

In the night in which he ascended, Jesus (PBUH) promised his disciples [that they meet him], so they all came to him, except Judas, who disclosed the location of Jesus (PBUH) to the Jewish scholars, for he went to the higher Jewish Marja’ and promised him to give them Jesus (PBUH).

And it was after midnight that the disciples fell asleep, and Jesus (PBUH) remained, so Allah raised him, and sent down (his look alike who was crucified and killed), so he was a shield and a sacrifice for him, and this look alike is one of the vicegerents of the family of Muhammad (PBUT), he was crucified and he was killed, and he endured the torture for the cause of Imam Al Mahdi (PBUH).

And Jesus (PBUH) was neither crucified nor killed, but he was raised, so Allah saved him from the hands of the Jews and their misguided misguiding scholars (May Allah curse them). HE swt says “And because of their saying: We have killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they killed him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them”.

And in the narration in the interpretation of Ali the son of Ibrahim that Abi Ja’afar (PBUH) said:  "Verily, Jesus (PBUH) promised his disciples the night in which Allah raised him, so they all gathered by night time, and they are twelve men, so he made them enter a house then he came out to them from an eye in the corner of the house, and he was shaking his head from water, then he said, verily Allah is raising me to him this hour, and He is my purifier from the Jews, so who among you is to have my ghost thrown upon him that he may be killed and crucified and be with me in my status/level? So a young man from them said, I am, O spirit of Allah, so he said, so you are he”. Then he (PBUH) said “Verily the Jews came in demand for Jesus (PBUH) from their night…and they took the young man whom the ghost of Jesus (PBUH) was thrown upon so he was killed and crucified)" [1].

Imam Al Baqir (PBUH) says “twelve have gathered”, while those who came from the disciples were (eleven), for Judas did not come, but he went to the scholars of the Jews to give them Jesus (PBUH), and this is a frequent [piece of information] which cannot be denied. The twelfth man who came, or say descended from heavens, is the vicegerent from the family of Muhammad (PBUT), who was crucified and killed, after he was made to look like Jesus (PBUH).

And the last words of this vicegerent were: “Eliah Eliah [Elijah Elijah] why did you leave me”. And in Gospel of Matthew: “Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ that is, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, ‘This man is calling Elijah’…But the others said, ‘Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him’. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split…” [2] Done.

And the truth is that the translation of the words that he said is as follows: “ya Ali ya Ali why have you made me descend”. And the Christians translate it as such “elahi elahi [my god my god] why did you leave me”, as was shown in the previous text from the Bible.
And the descent, or the throw in Earth, from the sky is close to the act of leaving.

And this vicegerent did not say these words out of ignorance about the reason of the descent, nor did he say them as an objection at the command of Allah swt. But these words are a question with a hidden answer, he directed [the question] to the people: meaning “understand and know why I descended and why I was crucified and why I was killed, so that you don’t fail the test another time, if the same question is asked again, so if you saw the Romans (or the likes of them) conquering the Earth, and the scholars of the Jews (or the likes of them) flattering them, then I will be in that Earth, for this is the Sunnah of Allah which is repeated, so learn your lesson, and give me victory if I come, and do not participate again in my crucifixion and my murder.

He wanted to say in the answer of the evident question for every sane person who is pure by nature: I was crucified and I endured the torture and the insults of the scholars of the Jews, and I was killed for the minor resurrection, the resurrection of Imam Al Mahdi (PBUH), and for the state of the truth and for the divine justice on Earth.

And when the scholars of the Jews and the Roman ruler asked this vicegerent: are you the king of the Jews? He would answer: “you said”, or “they say”, or “you say”, and he did not say yes; a strange answer to those who are ignorant of the truth, but now [the answer] has become clear. For he did not say yes, because he was not the king of the Jews, for Jesus (PBUH) whom Allah ascended was, but he [the vicegerent] was the look alike who descended to be crucified and killed instead of Jesus (PBUH)

And this is the text of his answer -after he was arrested- from the Bible:

(And the high priest answered and said to him, “I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ”, Jesus answered “You have said so”…) [3].

(… So Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ Jesus said, ‘You have said so…’) [4].

(… And Pilate asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ And he answered him, ‘You have said so…’) [5].

(…So they all said, ‘Are you Christ?’ So he said to them, ‘You say that I am…’) [6].

(…33 So Pilate entered his headquarters again and called Jesus and said to him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Do you say this of your own accord, or did others say it to you about me?” 35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you over to me. What have you done?” 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But now my kingdom is not from here.” 37 Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth…) [7].

And in this latter text the vicegerent clarified that he is not from the people of the Earth in that age, but that he descended on it to accomplish a mission, which is sacrificing himself for Jesus (PBUH), for you see this vicegerent says (My kingdom is not of this world), (But now my kingdom is not from here), (and for this purpose I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth…).

The Prophet of Allah (PBUH & His House Hold) said “Jesus the son of Mary (PBUH) will descend at the break of day between “mihrodayn” [two colored clouds], and they are two yellow dresses from saffron, his body is white, his head is red, his hair split in half, as if his head is pouring oil/fat, in his hand is a spear, he will break the crucifix, kill the pig, destroy the Dajjal, collect the money of Al-Qa’im and the People of the Cave will walk behind him, and he is the right vizier [most trusted helper] of Al-Qa’im, his chamberlain and his deputy, and he will spread security in the west and the east with the blessing and dignity of the Hujjat (proof of Allah) son of Al-Hassan (PBUH)”[8]

The Commander of the Faithful, Ali Bin Abi Talib (PBUH) said “and the home of the ruler/king shall return to Al Zawra’a, and the matters shall be handled through the Shura, where whoever dominates over a matter shall do it. It is at that point that As-Sufyani will appear and travel the land for nine months during which he will inflict upon them the worst of torment. Woe unto Egypt, woe unto Az-Zawraa’, woe unto Kufa and woe unto Wasit, for it is as if I am looking at Wasit and I see no survivor there with any news. It is at that point that As-Sufyani will appear, food will become scarce, people sterile, rain rare, lands infertile, and not a drop of water will come down from the sky. Then, Al-Mahdi, the rightly guided and guiding Imam, will reappear and take the standard from Jesus the son of Mary” [9].

And there are a lot of Hadiths that prove that Jesus (PBUH) was not crucified nor was he killed, but the one who was crucified and killed was the look alike of Jesus (PBUH).

Abi Abdillah (PBUH) said: "Jesus the son of Mary (PBUH) ascended [to heaven] clad in garments of wool spun by Mary, woven by Mary, and sewn by Mary. When he was brought up to heaven it was called: ‘O Jesus! Cast off from yourself the finery of the world” [10].

And Al-Ridha (PBUH) said: “None of the matters of any of the prophets of Allah or of any of His proofs was made to (look like something else than what it is) to the people except the matter of Jesus son of Mary, for he was raised from the earth alive and his soul was taken between heaven and earth, then he was raised to heaven and his soul was returned to him, and that in His saying: ” And when Allah said: O Jesus, I am going to take you (causing you to die) and cause you to ascend unto Me” [11] [12].

And the Prophet (PBUH & His HouseHold): “Jesus (PBUH) did not die and verily he shall return to you before the day of resurrection” [13]

And pay attention that Jesus is a sent prophet and he had asked from Allah swt to be healed and to push the crucifixion and the torture and the killing away from him, and Allah swt does not return back a du’a of a sent prophet, so Allah swt answered his du’a and raised him, and sent down the vicegerent who was crucified and killed instead of him.

And in the bible there are many texts which include the supplication of Jesus (PBUH) to be saved from the crucifixion and the murder:

(…So he went a little farther and he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me…) [14]

(…And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me…) [15]


(…And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me…) [16]

And in the Torah/ Book of Isaiah, and in the Bible Acts of the Apostles/Chapter 8 this text (…Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter, and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth…)

And all the sent prophets and vicegerents talked, none of them went silently to the slaughter, but they were sent to talk and reproach/reprove and preach to the people, and Jesus (PBUH) in particular, how many times did he reprove/reproach the scholars and the people, and how many times did he preach to them, so it is unbelievable that he went to the slaughter silently.

But this who went to the slaughter silently is the vicegerent: (the look alike of Jesus) who was crucified and killed without speaking, and without asking from Allah that He pushes away from him the torture or the crucifixion or the killing, and without speaking with people, but even when they were pressing and asking him with insistence who are you, he did not answer them except by one word, you said.

And that way he went to the torment and crucifixion and killing, silently and satisfied (accepting) the command of Allah, executor to what descended to him, and that is to be crucified and killed instead of Jesus (PBUH).

And because originally it was not his time to be sent and inform people and speak with them, as such he went like a sheep led to the slaughter, like a silent lamb before its shearer, so he did not open his mouth.

I hope that every believer who wants to know the truth may benefit from this situation, for this human who was sent down to Earth, and was crucified and killed, and nobody knows, he did not ask to be mentioned nor did he ask to be known, he descended silently, and he was crucified silently, and he was killed silently, and ascended to his God silently, like that if you wanted to be then be.

- Ahmad Al Hassan

Jesus (pbuh) is Unaware of the Hour

Excerpt from ’The Book of Monotheism: The Interpretation of Surah Al Tawheed’ By: Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh):

 

The Decisiveness/Discernment of the Speech from the Gospels

(Jesus, Peace of Allah be upon him, is ignorant of the hour)

 

Jesus (pbuh) said regarding himself that he is ignorant (unaware) of the hour in which will be the minor resurrection: “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. [1], and ignorance is due to shortages/deficiencies, whereas, the Absolute Divinity is Absolute Perfection whom does not have any deficiency/shortage or ignorance, for He is Light with no darkness in it, while ignorance is found in the created being because he has darkness present in the page of his existence.

Therefore, Jesus (pbuh) is Light and darkness and this proves to the inquisitor that Jesus is not an Absolute God, but rather, he is a servant whom was created from darkness and Light, and he is not Light with no darkness in it, the Almighty, Allah is far above.

And in that is a decisive speech and a clarification for an advice to those whom have minds, and this text is the words of Jesus (pbuh) just as it is present in the Gospel of Mark: 32 “Yet about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, not even the Son; no one but the Father. 33 ‘Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of Man is like a man away from home: he has left his house and put his servants in charge, each with his own work to do, and he has ordered the door-keeper to keep watch. 35 Keep watch, then, for you do not know when the master of the house will come. Evening or midnight, cock-crow or early dawn – 36 if he comes suddenly, do not let him find you asleep. 37 And what I say to you, I say to everyone: Keep Watch.’ [2].

Monotheism in the Bible

The Texts of the Torah and the Gospels

 

Proving that Allah is One and Indivisible

It is not composed of parts: And these texts are clear and explicit and evident, for it is meaningless to interpret them in order that they match texts which their meanings were ambiguous/allegorical to the non-working Scholars, so they lead astray the Creation of Allah by interpreting them according to their desires a false interpretation.

 

1 – A few texts in the Torah (The Old Testament):

“Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. [1].

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:” [2].

“See know that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me;” [3].

“I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. [4].

“I am the LORD, that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth; who is with me? [5].

“Am I not the Lord, and there is no other Lord than me? A Good Faithful God, none other than me [6].

“Did not one God create us?” [7].

“I am the LORD your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt, the place of your slavery. * You must not have any other God but me. [8].

 

2 – A few texts from the Gospels (The New Testament):

“With Truth I have said, verily, He is One God, and there is none other beside Him. [9].

“and you are not seeking the glory of The One God? [10].

 

Texts from the Messages which they associated with the Gospels:

“since there is only one God,” [11].

“and that, ‘That there is No God but One.’” [12].

“but God is one. [13].

“For, present is One God.” [14].

“You believe that there is one God. Good!” [15].

The Son, The Father, The Sons of God

Excerpt from ’The Book of Monotheism: The Interpretation of Surah Al Tawheed’ By: Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh):

 

The Son:

In the Torah and the Gospels (My Father, Your Father, the Son, the Father, the Sons of God).

4 …. But this is what the LORD Almighty says: “They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called the Wicked Land, a people always under the wrath of the LORD. 5 You will see it with your own eyes and say, ‘Great is the LORD—even beyond the borders of Israel!’ 6 “A son honors his father, and a slave his master. If I am a father, where is the honor due me? If I am a master, where is the respect due me?” says the LORD Almighty. “It is you priests who show contempt for my name.” [1].

21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. 22 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” 23 Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.” [2].

1 Ascribe to the LORD, O Children of Allah, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness) [3].

1 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them. He said: 3“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. [4].

These words which are present within the Torah or the Gospels and which certain parts of it were ambiguous/confusing to the one whom is ignorant of them, and which the non-working scholars interpreted- in order that they may claim son-ship of a human being to Allah, the Glorious, or that they may claim Absolute Godhood to a man – it does not mean by any form or image Godhood of a human being Absolute Godhood, rather, it collectively denies true filiation (The condition or fact of being the child of a certain parent) for any man [5]. And if one turned towards it with an open heart, requesting knowledge of the truth just as Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, wants from whom He Created, he would have found that Jesus (pbuh) praises Allah and thanks Him before uttering these words, and if one looked with an eye of fairness they would have known that these words are applicable to all of the Prophets and the Messengers and the Vicegerents whom were the Hujjajj (Proofs) of Allah upon His Creation and His Successors on His Earth. For, every Hujja (Proof) from the Hujjajj (Proofs) of Allah is the most knowledgeable of Allah among the people of his time, thus, it becomes proven that he is [the only one] whom knows Allah among the people of his time, and also it becomes proven that no one knows the Successor of Allah and the Proof of Allah a true knowing except for Allah whom created him (and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal to him).

And this is found in the speech of the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (pbuh & his progeny) to his Vicegerent Ali son of Abi Talib (pbuh): “O Ali! No one knows Allah except for me and you, and no one knows me except for Allah and you, and no one knows you except for Allah and me.” [6].

And also, man would have known the truth, which is that all of the creation are the children of Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, for He has Mercy upon them as a father has mercy upon his children, rather, He is More Merciful with the Creation than the Mother with her only child. And certainly the Prophets and the Vicegerents and the preferred ones (pbut) are the most beloved Creation to Allah, the Glorious, so they are the most deserving of having Allah, the Glorious, The Almighty, as their father according to this meaning, and because they obeyed Him and did not disobey Him, the Glorious, just as the virtuous son is obedient and dutiful to his father, thus,it becomes correct that they are the children of Allah according to this meaning, and they are not Absolute Divinity, rather, they are honored servants, for they are thankful. {And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken a son.” Exalted is He! Rather, they are [but] honored servants.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-’Anbyā’ (The Prophets): 26}.

{If Allah had intended to take a son, He could have chosen from what He creates whatever He willed. Exalted is He; He is Allah, the One, the Prevailing.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Az-Zumar (The Troops): 4}.

And it is evident in the Qur’an that they (pbut) {… whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light…} {The Holy Qur’an Surat An-Nūr (The Light): 35}, meaning, that they are Allah in Creation, meaning [that they are] the manifestation of Allah and the Image of Allah just as a Hadith (Tradition) from them (pbut) stated: “Indeed, Allah created Adam upon His Image.” [6]26 God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, [7], and they are not Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty. And consequently, the looking towards them is looking towards Allah, seeing them is seeing Allah, and in the Gospels: 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

And in the Qur’an will be found the same talk: {[Some] faces, that Day, will be radiant,* Looking at their Lord.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Qiyāmah (The Resurrection): 22& 23}, from Abi Al Salt Al Hurrayra from Imam Al Rida (pbuh), he said: “Said the Prophet (pbuh & his progeny): ‘Whomever has visited me during my life or after my death then he has visited Allah, the Almighty, and the prophet of Allah (pbuh & his Famly) shall include him in the Highest degrees in Paradise. Thus, whomever visits him in his degree in Paradise from his home then he has visited Allah, the Blessed, the Almighty.’ I said: “So I said to him: ‘O Son of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his progeny)! What is the meaning of what has been narrated: That the reward [for saying] ‘La Illahu Ila Allah – There is No God except for Allah’ is looking towards the face of Allah, the Almighty?’ So he (pbuh) said: O Abi Salt! Whomever describes Allah, the Almighty, [that He has a face] as the faces the he has indeed disbelieved, however, the Face of Allah, the Almighty, is His Prophets, and His Messengers, and His Proofs, Mercy of Allah be upon them, they are whom by them you face/turn towards Allah, the Exalted, and towards His Religion, and knowing Him, and said Allah, the Almighty: {Everyone upon the earth will perish,* And there will remain the Face of your Lord, Owner of Majesty and Honor.}, and said the Exalted: {Everything will be destroyed except for His Face}.’” [8].

Said the Almighty: {Say, [O Muhammad], “If the Most Merciful had a son, then I would be the first of [his] worshippers.”} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Az-Zukhruf (The Ornaments of Gold)}.

{Say, [O Muhammad], “If the Most Merciful had a son, then I would be the first of [his] worshippers.”} Meaning that Muhammad (pbuh & his progeny) is the nearest thing to Allah, the Glorious, and the first Creation that Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, created, and the first whom worshiped Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty. Thus, if Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, had a son (Far Above and Exalted is Allah for that) it would have been Muhammad (pbuh & his progeny); for verily, they say that the first which was produced from Him, the Glorious, the Almighty, was the child/son or the Word. Therefore, Muhammad whom said ‘I am the nearest creation to Allah, Glory be to Him, the Almighty’ did not say ‘I am the son separated from Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty’, nor did he say ‘I am an Absolute God’, but rather, he said ‘I am Abdullah (the servant of Allah) and the son of Abdullah (the servant of Allah)’.{And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken a son.” Exalted is He! Rather, they are [but] honored servants.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-’Anbyā’ (The Prophets): 26}.

Thus, whomever is seeking the truth he should be so accurate and sincere/dedicated in his search in order that he may reach the truth and save himself from the wrath of Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty {And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son.” * You have done an atrocious thing. * The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation * That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son. * And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Maryam (Mary): 88 – 92}.

Allah Appeared in the Body

Excerpt from 'The Book of Monotheism: The Interpretation of Surah Al Tawheed' By: Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh):

 

Allah Appeared in the Body

 

This is one of the messages which the non-working Scholars use as their evidence upon what they have gone towards from misguidance, and claiming that Absolute Godhood came down in the Body,

1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope, 2 To Timothy my true son in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. [1].

16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. [2].

Firstly: The first Chapter of the Message Jesus (pbuh) was not given other than the attribute of Lordship and it is an attribute which there is no problem that a prophet or a messenger be described by it, for they (pbut), are the discipliners of people, and they are the more deserving of this description than the father whom is described by it and is called “a lord” in regards to his family.

Rather also, the chapter clarified that the sending does not [happen] except by the Command of Allah, the Glorious, and that Jesus is commanded “according to the Command of Allah”. Therefore, Jesus (pbuh) was commanded and commands by the command of Allah; this means that Allah is Higher, and more Knowledgeable, and more Capable than him.

Therefore, it becomes proven that Jesus (pbuh) needs other than himself and that shortages/deficiencies are found in the page of his existence; otherwise, it’s meaningless to be commanded while he is Absolute Perfection, for this contradicts Wisdom, for how is it possible that Absolute Perfection [can] benefit from any other than himself?!

As for that which was stated in the same message in the Third Chapter, it is supposed to be – after it was opened by what we saw – understood that the appearance of Allah in the body is exactly as His appearance in all of the Created Worlds and His manifestation in them, and the appearance [of the created worlds] by Him, the Glorious. Yes, there is a specialty for this saying here, for verily, it means that Jesus (phuh) represented (Allah’s rise in Sa’ir) meaning that he (Jesus (pbuh)) is the hand of Allah and the Face of Allah and the Image of Allah, however, he is a created servant and not Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty. There is a big difference between the Reality and Truth and the Image, exactly as the difference between something and nothingness.

Therefore, Allah, just as I have previously clarified, has manifested in the Worlds of Creation and appeared in it and made it appear, and this does not mean that He has come down in it or that [the creation] has become an Absolute Divinity, or that it is possible for some one from [the creation] to become Absolute Divinity no matter how great their Light is, for verily, [creation] remains a created being and remains Light mixed with Darkness. Thus, the highest possible rank for a Human to obtain is that he becomes Allah within the Creation {… whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light…} {The Holy Qur’an Surat An-Nūr (The Light): 35}, almost glows from himself – and for that Ibrahim (Abraham) (pbuh) was confused in the beginning in regards to the matter, until Allah made the Truth known to him [3], however, never glows from himself.

And the Hadith (Narration) Al Qudsi from Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty:“My Heaven does not contain Me nor does My Earth contain Me, but the heart of My believing servant contains Me.” [4], meaning that he (the servant of Allah) may be the Face of Allah and the Hand of Allah just as stated in the Qur’an: {Indeed, those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually pledging allegiance to Allah . The hand of Allah is over their hands.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Fatĥ (The Victory): 10}, {And there will remain the Face of your Lord, Owner of Majesty and Honor.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Ar-Raĥmān (The Beneficent): 27}.

And just as it is evident in the presented texts of the Torah and the Gospels.

Jesus (PBUH) and the Council of Nicaea

 

Excerpt from 'The Book of Monotheism: The Interpretation of Surah Al Tawheed' By: Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh):

 

Some Words from Torah and the Gospels

 

[The words that] some people imagined to mean that the Absolute Divine comes in the Worlds of Creation in a human being, and the clarification of [these words]

 

The Word:

In the book of The Divinity of Christ by Pope Shenouda the Third (Coptic Orthodox pope), Shenouda the Third said:

 

The First Chapter: The Divinity of Christ with Respect to Him Being One of the Holy Trinity- He is the Logos (the Word).

(John 1:1): "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Allah, and the Word was Allah" and here the speech about his divinity is completely clear).

 

The Response:

I have clarified in this book that Jesus (pbuh) is a servant/worshiper and that he is not an Absolute Divine [being], and [the chapter] of The Decisiveness/Discernment of the Speech will come and from a clear precise confirmed verse from the Gospel [1], and consequently, it is incorrect to interpret and understand this text and other than it [an understanding and interpretation that suggest that] Jesus (pbuh) is an Absolute Divine [being], as has been proven from what has been presented that Jesus (pbuh), or Christ (pbuh) can not possibly be Light which has no Darkness in it, rather he is Light and Darkness, and this has always been his case for he is a created being whom is in need of, and poor in regards to, the Absolute Divine (swt).

 

The Interpretation of this Text :

(In the beginning was the Word): There is no beginning for the Absolute Divine (swt) in order to say “in the beginning” , rather, what is in the beginning is the created, and therefore, Christ (Jesus pbuh) is a created being, and this verse shows clearly that he is created. Yes it is possible to be said that what is meant here is the first created being or the first Mind, in that case this matter could be discussed, Is Christ (Jesus pbuh) the first word? Or is Christ (Jesus pbuh) a word from the words of Allah which came later after the first word?

(And the Word was with Allah): The Absolute Divine is not a compound reality ([meaning it is not a reality/truth which is composed from parts), and it is false to say that it is compound (composed of several parts) or to say anything that implies that it is composed [of parts], because believing that what is meant by the saying (and the Word was with Allah) is that the Word is the Absolute Divine, then this would mean that the Absolute Divine is compound/composed of parts. And believing [2] that the Word is Allah – meaning that He is She and She is He with no distinction between them – even though it is not compound, makes [this speech] foolish and free from any sort of wisdom. Because it is meaningless to say that the thing is with itself ([it is meaningless to say Allah was with Allah!]).

(And the Word was Allah): Here is where the place of confusion is, and here is the allegorical/ambiguous [meaning] which Shenouda has fallen into as well as many before him have fallen into it. And truth is, after it has been clarified that the Word is a created being, and that he himself cannot be an Absolute Divine, then nothing remains except that “Allah” [mentioned] here is not the Absolute Divine, rather, what is meant is “Allah in Creation”, meaning, the image of Allah, as has been mentioned in the Torah or the Old Testament (26 Then Allah said, ‘Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness) [3], (So Allah created humankind in his image, in the image of Allah he created them) [4].

Immanuel or Allah is with us:

(Now therefore, behold, the Lord is bringing up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, even the king of Assyria, and all his glory: and he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks: 8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel. 9 Associate yourselves, O peoples, and you shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all you of distant countries: gird yourselves, and you shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and you shall be broken in pieces. 10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand/succeed: for Allah is with us) [5].

Yes, Allah is with the believing people whom follow the successor of Allah in every age.

(All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God (Allah) is with us”) [6].

The Successor of Allah in His Earth is the representative of Allah, and if he is the hand of Allah and the face of Allah then he is Allah in Creation, but he is not an Absolute Divine, rather, he is a a poor created being whom is need [of the Absolute Divine] and he is not Light with no Darkness in it, rather, he is Light and Darkness.

And even if all what has been added to the New Testament from messages and works were accepted, the non-working scholars will never be able to prove that a human being is an Absolute Divine, they are only following that which its meaning has been confusing/ambiguous to them and they interpret it according to what goes along with their desires. Otherwise [if they did not interpret it according to their own desires], it would undoubtedly contradict the same messages and works, and it is explicit and clear that Jesus (pbuh) or Christ (pbuh) is a created servant, rather it would contradict the Old Testament in which they believe, and it would contradict all the speeches of the previous prophets whom they claim to believe in, and Jesus pbuh (Christ) never claimed to be an Absolute Divine, and the former ones never claimed that Jesus is an Absolute Divine. Rather, this matter (which is claiming that Jesus is an Absolute Divine) is emergent and has come after hundreds of years and was confirmed in the Council of Nicaea in AD 325 [7]. And many people opposed it (that Jesus is an Absolute Divine) during that time, and [even] after it was confirmed in the Council of Nicaea, and until today, there are [still] Christians whom do not accept it ([that Jesus is an Absolute Divine]) and do not acknowledge this doctrinal deviation.

[7] (The Emperor Constantine the First, attended the opening of the Council, and the Council of Nicaea began its sessions in May 20th 325 AD. The Council was held according to instructions from the Emperor Constantine The First, in order to study the disputes between Arius and his followers from one side, and between the Church of Alexandria which was represented by Alexander The First (the Pope of Alexandria) and his followers from another side, regarding the nature of Christ, is it the same nature as The Lord or is it the nature of Humans.

Arius denied the Divinity of Christ, so he believed that there was a time when Jesus was not present in it, and he considered him to be from the creations of God and from His making, and he considered the Holy Spirit to be from God’s making also.

On the other hand, Alexander The First (the Pope of Alexandria) emphasized that the nature of Christ is the same nature of God, and the opinion of Alexander The First (the Pope of Alexandria) dominated/prevailed by Voting, which was under the authority of the Emperor Constantine whom was supporting the Pope of Alexandria, and Arius and two from the priests refused with insistence to sign, then they were banished to Alera (The Balkans currently), and the books of Arius were burned, and his doctrine has been named ” the Heresy of Arius”, and his followers have been stamped untill this very day as being the enemies of Christianity.

And resulted from the Council of Nicaea the first of the forms of believing that the Divinity of Christ is an Absolute Divinity, and the relationship between the Church and the Authority started to be formed after it was a religious entity. And three centuries later, after the development of the ideology of the church and its mixing with thoughts and religions which were surrounding from all directions and from which was the Roman Paganism (the previous religion of Constantine), the church which was supported by the Roman Emperor became the reference and the authority which determines who enters the boundaries of faith and who exits out of it)

This speech is almost identical to all that which was mentioned from The Church and historically from the Council, with action ofcourse, And I do not believe that a fair researcher would be heedless of [the fact that] Constantine supported Alexander and verified and confirmed his pagan belief in Christianity, for after half of the Christian Priests were supporting Arius, their fear that they might get oppressed by Constantine made them step back [from their stance]. And whoever does not know who Constantine was and how he used to oppress whomever opposed him, even if the one opposing him was the closest person to him, then let him revise the history of this tyrant who spread the corrupted Christianity in Europe, and whom never hesitated in killing his cousins and the closest people to him if they opposed him. While you find the priests of today disregard the bloody history of Constantine, and they portray Constantine to be a gentle lamb whom held this council and gave freedom to all those whom agreed with him and opposed him, even though banishing and persecuting Arius and forbidding his belief after the council is enough to recognize the purpose and goal of holding this council, and that was to destroy Arius and the belief that Christ is just a created being, and spreading the Pagan belief in Christ, which is that he is Allah.

(Translation of the Latin text:

We believe in one God,the Father whom is capable of everything, maker of all things the visible and the invisible , We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only begotten son of God, meaning from the Essence of the Father, a God from a God, Light from Light, True God from True God, begotten, not made/not created , he is equal to the father in the essence, Whom for us human beings and for our salvation came down and he was incarnate, and was made man, and suffered and rose on the third day again, he whom through him everything came to exist, everything in Heaven and everything in Earth, and he ascended to the heavens, He comes to judge the living and the dead and by the Holy Spirit. As for those whom say ‘There was a time when he (the word) was not;’ and ‘He was not before he became born;’ and ‘ He came to existence from that which does not exist ([He was made out of nothing]),’ or they say about the Existence of the son of God that ‘He is from another person or another essence,’or (that he is a created being)’ or ‘changeable,’ or ‘alterable’—they are condemned by the holy catholic and apostolic Church).
And all the priests who were present signed this Law of Creed, except for two of them – and perhaps more – and ofcourse in addition to Arius and his people).

And the Orthodox Pope in Egypt, Shinouda The Third, says in his book The Nature of Christ: (Arius used to deny the Divinity of Christ, and see that he was less than the father in essence, and that he was created. And the Arian roots are still present until today. Even after it was condemned by the Ecumenical council of Nicaea in 325 A.D, Arius and his followers (The Arians) [who came] after him remained a reason for trouble/exhaustion and disunity and doubt to the Holy church).

And ofcourse Shinouda The Third here presents by Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Christian doctrine which have been spreading in the Christian world in a great manner, and especially in the West. And Jehovah’s Witnesses do not admit a lot of the deviations of the Church, from the examples of Trinity and that the Word is Allah and other innovations. And among the proofs that the belief that Christ is a Divine is an innovation which was verified in the Council of Nicaea, is that half of those who were present in the Council of Nicaea were supporting Arius, or were neutral, and the belief that Jesus (Christ) was just a created being was the common and prevalent belief during the time of Arius, and this is a matter that the priests admit in their books until today:

It was mentioned in the researches of the Christian Ecumenical Councils – by Bishop Bishoy (…4- Council of Nicaea: 1- The circumstances of holding the council………


B- As for the direct reason for holding this council, it was the innovation of Arius ([Heresy of Arius]), because the empire was about to be divided because of this innovation………


The Ecumenical Council was held by the command of King Constantine out of his fear of the serious division that was present in the empire because of the innovation of Arius. The council was held in 325 A.D. in Nicaea, and it had three hundred and eighteen bishops. And as Saint Athanasius, who was an eye witness and one of the members of the council, has mentioned in a speech of his that in the beginning sixteen bishops were supporting Arius, and twenty two bishops were supporting Pope Alexander, and the rest of them had a neutral stance. And by the end of the Council, only two bishops remained supportive to Arius, and they were Secundus and Theonas, whom refused to sign/adhere to the creed of the Council with the rest of the priests whom were attached to them. And during the times of Saint Epiphanius, the signatures of the three hundred and eighteen whom were present in Nicaea were still there. That was due to the explanation of Saint Epiphanius of the creed and his response to the slanders/false claims of Arius. And by that, we come to see the extent of the greatness of the Alexandrian defense in the Council. And reaching the decision of the Council was not an easy matter, rather, it required a lot of effort…

5- Council of Nicaea: 2) Arius and his Heresy.

There passed a time where most of the world almost became Arian, if it was not for Epiphanius, for during one of the times, the Emperor isolated the Roman Pope and appointed in his place another one in order that he may sign the law of the Arian creed. And when the pope came back from his prison to his chair, he signed the law of the Arian creed which he had previously refused to sign. This was the stage where none but Epiphanius and his bishops remained in Egypt, and they were the only ones whom were holding tight to the correct creed. For that reason, it is not strange that Isaiah the Prophet said: “Blessed be Egypt my people” (Isaiah 19:20), but in many other times the Alexandrian Pope supported the Chair of Rome, like the Popes who were with Pope Epiphanius and supported him.

Christianity collapsed in the entire world and surrendered infront of the Arian Tyranny, and nothing remained but the chair of Alexandria which was represented by the Alexandrian banished pope and his Egyptian bishops. And upon us is discerning the traces of the steps of our father………) The Christian Ecumenical Councils – The Ecumenical Councils and Heresies – Bishop Bishoy.

Negligence Towards the Boundaries of Monotheism

Excerpt from 'The Book of Monotheism: The Interpretation of Surah Al Tawheed' By: Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh):

 

Secondly: Negligence towards the boundaries of Monotheism

 

Let us take the example of the Nasara (the Nasiris/Christians) and from there we will halt upon the Wahabis.

And the Nasaris, or as they have named themselves, the Christians, made for the Prophet of Allah Jesus (pbuh), who was a servant from the servants of Allah, Absolute Godhood and Absolute Richness. And their only proof/argument is a few words in their Gospels, for example, Jesus’ (pbuh) saying: ‘My Father’ and ‘The Son’, although, all these are interpreted to mean the characteristics/attributes of fatherhood and sonship, not its essence, meaning, Mercy and Politeness/Benevolence and Disciplining and… and Giving which, perhaps, reached to the sacrificing of the self, from the father to his son, and Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, shares with Fatherhood some attributes, having in mind His, the Glorious, Richness (His lack of need for this). Also, from the aspect of the son in regards to the father, it is possible to see the status of Kindness and Dutifulness of the righteous Son towards his Father and his obedience to Him in accordance to the behavior of the Prophets and the Vicegerents towards Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty.

And Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, reaches with His servant in giving until He gives him everything, thus He, the Glorious, the Almighty, addresses His servant [by saying]: “I am Alive and do not die and indeed I have made you [an] alive [one whom] does not die, I say to something be and it becomes, and indeed I have made you say to something be and it becomes.” [1]. And this is what being described by the the description of Godhood in Creation means, meaning, that the servant gets described by a few of the attributes of Godhood with noticing his poverty [his need for Allah swt]. For this servant is alive and does not die and he says to something be and it becomes and [this] is an attribute of Godhood, however, the One Whom granted him that is Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, and he is needy and poor towards Allah to remain as such. As for Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, verily, He was and is and will remain alive and does not die and He says to something be, thus, it becomes, without Him needing or seeking anyone. And this clearly distinguishes the difference between being desribed with the description/attribute of Godhood in Creation (or the Face of Allah or the Hand of Allah or the Rise of Allah in Sai’r or the Appearance of Allah in Fa’ran) [2] which was represented by the most special of His Preferred ones/Guardians, as Muhammad (pbuh & his family) and Jesus (pbuh), and between the True Absolute Godhood, which is restricted and limited to Allah, Glory be to Him, the Almighty.

{They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary” while the Messiah has said, “O Children of Israel, worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord.” Indeed, he who associates others with Allah – Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Mā’idah (The Table Spread): 72}

{They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Mā’idah (The Table Spread): 73}

{So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Mā’idah (The Table Spread): 74}

{The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded.} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Mā’idah (The Table Spread): 75}

{Had there been within the heavens and earth gods besides Allah , they both would have been ruined. So exalted is Allah , Lord of the Throne, above what they describe.} {They Holy Qur’an Surat Al-’Anbyā’ (The Prophets): 22}

The Relationship between Jesus (pbuh) and Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh)

In the name of god the most merciful, the most graceful,

Insha Allah we shall present to you one of the greatest stories that history didn’t know how to record it, as it wasn’t clear for them, but then the Messenger of Imam Al Mahdy (A.S) Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (A.S) gave us an easy concept to understand the events of this story.

It is about what happened with Jesus (PBUH) and its relationship with the successor of Mohammed’s Family (A.S) which is Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (A.S).

Firstly, we shall introduce the holy prophet Jesus (PBUH) and the messenger of Imam Al Mahdy (A.S) which is imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (A.S).

Jesus the son of Mary (A.S) has always been revered and held in high esteem among Christians and Muslims. He was noble, a worshipper, an ascetic and loving to all the believers and excellent in his conduct with others. His ring was engraved with two sayings he took from the gospel, “blessed is the servant because of whom Allah is remembered, and woe unto the servant because of whom Allah is forgotten.”

Jesus (PBUH)’s law included “divine unity”. Purity, the dismissal of peers for Allah, and the liberal uprightness of human nature. He made lawful what is pure in it, and prohibited what is filthy, and he removes from them their burdens and the shackles that were upon them.

Whereas imam Ahmad Al-Hassan is the messenger and guardian of imam Al Mahdy (A.S), he used to live in Al Basra, a city in southern Iraq. He has finished his academic studies and got a bachelors degree in civil engineering and then he has moved to the honorable Najaf and lived in it for the purpose of learning the religious knowledge.

Now this was a brief introduction to these holy successors. For each divine call, has believers and unbelievers. However we read Jesus’ life we see that he had only twelve men, who were his apostles, and they were his followers and advocators (his Ansar). And it was reported when Jesus (s) asked, “who were my patrons (ansar) for Allah?” the apostles said: “we are the patrons of Allah”. So here we can see why the Christians are named by nasara (patrons), however, they were called so because of their patronization to the religion of Allah.

And you see that imam Ahmad Al-Hassan said the same thing in the speech of Al-Haj, as he (s) said: “As for now, after you knew the truth, I tell you: don’t be the advocators of Ahmad Al-Hassan, the servant who dies, and is able to do nothing, but be the advocators of the Eternal who never dies, and who is capable upon everything. Be the advocators of Allah because he is the generous one who gives Himself to whom truly patronize him. People say: we are the advocators of so and the advocators of so. As for you, say we are the advocators of Allah”. How grateful are they (A.S)!

From the successors of Allah (A.S), we learn many principles and morals that reflects upon the clean hearted and obedient believers. And so imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (A.S) referred to some of the morals in the book of “al Mutashabihat” (The Allegories) as he mentioned what happened with the prophet Jesus (PBUH). Jesus the son of Mary (A.S) said: “O assembly of apostles! I have a request of you. Fulfill it for me.” They said: “your request is fulfilled, O spirit of Allah!” then he stood up and washed their feet. They said: “It would have been more proper for us to have done this, O spirit of Allah.” He said: “Verily, it is more fitting for one with knowledge to serve the people. Indeed, I humbled myself only so that you may humble yourselves among the people after me even as I have humbled myself among you.”  Then Jesus (PBUH) said: “the wisdom is developed by humility, not by pride, and likewise on the plain land the plants only grow, not in the mountain.” Now see these great lessons that the successor of Allah came with. Jesus used to make the dead people alive by the help of God the almighty. But even though, you can see how humble he was.

That is also seen by the supporters of imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (A.S). I will tell you this story that one of the ansar (Supporters) told me. One day, the ansar were in the house of the Sayed sitting, so one of them went to the bathroom to perform ablution. And because he didn’t have slippers, he wore imam’s slippers. At that time the supporters were going out, so the imam was looking for his slippers so he saw that the supporter was wearing it, and that supporter he found out that, so imam took the shoes of that supporter and gave it to him.

Subhan Allah how grateful, how great they are!

Jesus once said about himself, “I sleep while I have nothing and I rise while I have nothing, and yet there is no one on earth more wealthy than I.”

These two stories about him are sufficient to show his humbleness. He served a meal to the apostles, and when they had eaten it, he himself washed them, and another time, he stood up and washed their feet. They said: “It would have been more proper for us to have done this, O spirit of Allah.” He said: “Verily, it is more fitting for one with that you may humble yourselves among the people after me even as I have humbled myself among you.”

This is only little from the seas of generosity and morality that the successors came with. Now here we come to the part that shows clearly the bond between Jesus (PBUH) and imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (A.S).

In the book of Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (A.S) named by “The Allegories”, the story of Jesus’ counterpart has been explained clearly.

Jesus (PBUH), on the night in which he was raised up in, called upon his Apostles for a meeting. The apostles then arrived except Judas who guided the Jewish scholars to Jesus (PBUH), where he (Judas) went to the most superior of the Jewish scholars and he bartered them to hand over Jesus.

And it was at midnight, when the apostles slept while Jesus kept awake and that was the time when God raised Jesus’ soul to the heavens and descended Jesus’ counterpart (look alike) down to earth, who was later crucified and killed, as he was an armature and redemption for the sake of Jesus. That counterpart of Jesus was from the guardian of Mohammed’s family. He was crucified, killed and he was tortured for the sake of Al-Mahdy’s (AS) issue.

However, Jesus wasn’t crucified nor killed, but he was raised to god, where god saved him from the hands of the Jews and their misleading, astray scholars (Allah has cursed them). Allah said: “And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them;”

Also Imam Al- Baqer (AS) says: “so they met … and they were twelve”, whereas Jesus’ apostles were only “eleven”, as Judas didn’t come, but he went to the Jewish scholars to handover Jesus (PBUH) to them. that is from the most frequent authentic facts that cannot be denied, for as the twelfth from the men ,who came, or say was sent down from heaven, is but a guardian from Mohammed’s family (A.S) who appeared in the form of Jesus and for that reason was crucified and killed.

Salam allah alayh, look at this sacrifice your great imam, imam ahmad al-hassan (s) did. He is a stone in the hands of Ali, anywhere he puts him, he is satisfied.

I shall take these pure honest words the imam ahmad al-Hassan (s) said in the end of the story of Jesus’ counterpart and present it for you, imam says:

“I hope that every believer benefits – that wants to know the truth from this situation. For as this man was descended to earth, got crucified and was killed and no-one knew his name. He also didn’t ask that anyone remembers him or that anyone knows him. He was descended silently, got crucified silently, was killed silently and ascended to his God silently.”

Is it possible for Absolute Divinity to be for other than Allah

‘Ilah’ (The God) is the Complete/Perfect Whom they [the creation] turn towards to fulfill the shortcomings and attain perfection, meaning [God/ilah] is the one whom is turned towards and sought. And the Lord is he whom fulfills the shortcomings of other than himself, and perfects/completes other than himself, and Divinity and Godhood is not specified [restricted] to Him, the Glorious, but rather what is specified [restricted] for Him, the Glorious, is Absolute Divinity, and Absolute Godhood, and the difference is clear between general Godhood, which includes even the father, for it is said regarding him (the father) ‘Lord of the Household’, considering that he brings up his sons and completes/perfects them, and between Absolute Godhood which does not include except the Rich Whom is not in need towards other than Himself, so it is restricted to Him, the Glorious. As such is Divinity, rather, Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, created the Human Being that he may become His complete/perfect Successor, and he shall not become as such except if he possessed all the qualities/attributes of Godhood and [if] they are manifested in him (meaning: Just as what was narrated from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family): ‘Gather the names of Allah.’). This is a summary, and there is details/elaboration present in ‘Tafsir Surat al-Tawhid’ which can be read here God Willing:
