Is the Quran God's Word? – Questions And Answer Session (Part 1) – Dr Zakir Naik
Dr Zakir Naik,We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah SWT we believe he was the Messiah translated Christ. We believe that he was born miraculously without any male intervention which many modern day Christians do not believe. We believe that he gave life to the dead with God's permission. We believe that he healed those blind & lepers with God's permission. The Christians & the Muslims sister we're going together but one may ask where is the parting of ways? The parting of ways is sister is that many Christians they say that Jesus Christ pbuh he claimed divinity. He said that he was All Mighty God. If you read the bible sister there is not a single unequivocal statement in the complete Bible where Jesus Christ pbuh himself says that I am God or where he says worship me. If any Christian can point out a single unequivocal statement, a single unambiguous statement in the complete Bible where Jesus Christ pbuh himself says that I am God or where he says worship me I'm ready to accept Christianity today. I'm not speaking on behalf of my other Muslim brothers. In fact if you read the Bible it's mentioned in the Gospel of John ch. 14 verse no. 28 Jesus Christ pbuh said: My Father is greater than I. Gospel of John Ch no. 10 verse no. 29My Father is greater than all.Gospel of Mathew Ch. No. 12 verse no. 28I cast out Devil with the sprit of God. Gospel of Luke Ch no. 11 verse no. 20I cast out Devil with the Finger of God.Gospel of John Ch. No. 5 verse no. 30I can of my own self do nothing as I hear I judge and my judgment is just for I seek not my will but the will of All Mighty God... but the will of my Father.Anyone who says that I follow not my will but the will of All Mighty God he's a Muslim. Jesus Christ pbuh was a Muslim he never claimed divinity.And its clearly mentioned in the book of Acts Ch. No. 2 verse no. 22 Ye men of Israel, listen to this, Jesus of Nazareth a man approved of God amongst you by wonders & miracles and signs which God did by him and you were witnessed to it. Jesus of Nazareth a MAN approved of God amongst you by wonders & miracles and signs which God did by him and you were witnessed to it. So we believe that Jesus Christ pbuh he was one of the Mightiest messengers of God but he was not God. So here we differ as far as the teachings are concerned your basic question was that Qur'an says you have to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ pbuh When Jesus Christ pbuh came in this world he was only sent for the Jews only for Bani Israel.The Qur'an says clearly in Surah Saff ch. No. 61 verse no. 6 that Jesus Christ pbuh came as a messenger to the Bani Israel. It's mentioned in Surah Ale Imran ch. No. 3 verse 49 that Jesus Christ pbuh was sent only for the Bani Israel. Its mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew ch. No. 10 verse no. 5 & 6 Jesus Christ pbuh he says Go ye not into the way of Gentiles. Who are the Gentiles? Non Jews, Hindus, Muslims, go ye not in the way of the Gentiles, enter ye not in the city of Smartens but rather go the hose of lost sheep of Israel. And a similar message is repeated in the Gospel of Mathew ch. No. 15 verse no. 24 he says to the apostles that I have been sent not but to the Lost sheep of the house of Israel. So Jesus Christ pbuh was sent only for the Bani Israel and his message was supposed to be followed only for a particular time period that's what the Bible says that's what the Qur'an says Inspite of this sister if you read the bible what Jesus Christ pbuh says if you analyze its mentioned in the Gospel of Luke that Jesus Christ pbuh he was circumcised on the 8th day. We Muslims, MashaAllah, we are circumcised, Majority of the Christians aren't circumcised. So if you say that following the teachings of Jesus Christ pbuh makes you a Christian then I'd like to say that I'm more Christian than the Christian themselves. It is mentioned in the Bible in the book of Ephesians Ch. No. 5 verse no. 18 that be not drunk, its mentioned in the book of Proverbs ch. No. 20 verse no. 1 that wine is a mocker. We Muslims we don't drink alcohol. Qur'an says in Surah Al Maidah ch no. 5 verse no. 90 alcohol is Haraam. We don't touch it; we don't touch it as a whole. The Muslims are the biggest community of tea toddlers. So according to the Bible you should not have alcohol. Its mentioned in the Bible that you should not have Pork in several places its mentioned in the Book of Leviticus Ch. No. 11 verse no. 7 & 8, its mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy Ch. No. 14 verse no. 8, in the book of Isaiah Ch. No. 65 verse no. 2 to 5.No less than 5 places that you should not have pork. We Muslims we don't have pork but majority of the Christians they have pork. So if Christian means a person who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ pbuh we Muslims are more Christian than the Christian themselves.
