A Mercy for All That Exist …

A Mercy for All That Exist
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is the best role model for all humankind. Among his outstanding virtues and characteristics, he was an extraordinary husband, a perfect father, and a unique grandfather. He was also a great statesman, judge, and spiritual leader. His most distinctive quality, however, was the fact that he was a blessing to all in both word and deed.

We know that most of you are tooobstinateto believe in the divinenessof theNoble Quran.Not only.that, but we are alsosure that you have indifferently obliteratedthe word (Paraclete) which means: [thepraised; and Muhammad (P.B.U.H) inArabic meansthe praisedone. i.e. ParacletemeansMuhammad],from the old version ofthe Bible. And you ask me why you woulddo this!? Why! The reason is veryconspicuousand it, simply, is to eradicateany good effect it will make on the righteousChristians;and hence guide them into theembrace Islam. of But, nevertheless, may refer to some weevidences-i.e. of the coming of ProphetMuhammad (P.B.U.H.)- in the OldTestament. Let us read the followingheedfully; Prophet Moses (Peacebe uponhim) was quotedas saying: {..

Then during that same nighthe ascendedfrom Bait Al- Maqdis to theHeavens."Another incredible,yet true, miracle was thesplitting of the moon. Once the pagans ofMakkah asked Prophet Muhammad to showthem a sign; particularly a moon that wassplit asunder into two halves, (ust likeThamudthe people of Saleh).He then raisedhis handsand askedhis Lord (Allah) to splitthe moon so that his people might see andhencebelievein (the Oneness) Allah and ofthe Prophethoodof Muhammad). After hehad brought down his hands and they alllooked up, they saw that the moon had beencleft asunder into two separateparts. Ofcourse, they claimed that, that was plainmagic. But after two days, a caravancame(from Sham)and testifiedthat they had seen-in a part of that night- the moon split into xii

He preached a religion,founded a state,built a nation, laid down amoral code, ...etc." If you are truth seekersand you read your scholarsbooks you willfind it obviously shown in their true writings.In other words, you shall find the real truthwithin the writings of those who used towrite truly. Allow me to attract yourattention- concerning this matter- to whatEarnestHemingwayonce said: "The problemwith every writer lies between him and hisown self. And it-simply-is how to writetruly!" But before our letter comesto an end, wewould like to mention two more things sothat Allah (god) the Almighty and Who is thedoer of whatsoeverHe intends (or wills),might remove the covering from in front ofyour eyes; and hence you may see theeverlastinglight! Well! The first is: in theNew Testament the Bible Jesus of (P.B.U.H.) xviii

The question is: Who is this "otherComforter" to come after Jesus? you read Ifneutrallywith a clearmind what Jesus said inadditionto the aboveBiblical Verse,you willbe convincedthat this Comforter is no oneother than Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). InadditionJesus said,"..How be it when he thespirit of truth, is come,he will guideyou intoall truth: for he shall not speak of himself;but whatsoeverhe shall hear, [that] shall hespeak:and he will show you things to come.He shallglori$ me.."(John 16:714). The second point is that the aboveProphecydeclaredby Jesus(P.B.U.H.)hascome to pass;and the Comforter came afterhim and startedguiding all peopleinto all thetruth. For you (i.e. Christians)in particular,he saidthe following guidance:- 1t r{jJr-|,,.lrt!) 1JJil ! ,& I rtl.".,,r1 n J,-, JB ,J"- )r)ta "rl *4!.:rJ {r} k ;e ,A}; s,.ti t.t-.J ili ,l d,[r, ) xix

Eventually,we would like to invite you-and, at the same time, remind ourselves-toworship One God Only; just as Jesustoldyou: (( ..that they may know you, The OnlyTrue God and JesusChrist whom you havesent.))John 17:3.
