Straight to the point



A    fter the creation of Adam, just one
original message has been repeatedly
delivered to mankind throughout the
history of humanity.
Thus, to remind people about it and bring
them back on track, many prophets and
messengers including Adam, Noah,
Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad
were sent by the only true God to convey
this message:


     The true God is only ONE.
     Worship Him ALONE and
     keep His commandments.

                                     5
Just One Message!



     The True God, The Creator

          sent:        to convey:



--------- Adam       God is One

--------- Noah       God is One

--------- Abraham    God is One

--------- Moses      God is One

--------- Jesus      God is One

--------- Muhammad   God is One



                                    6
Just One Message!


     God sent these major prophets as
well as many other prophets and
messengers to accomplish several tasks
and missions, some of which are:

1) To receive guidance from God and

deliver it to people.

2) To convey the message that God is One.

3) To be role models to their people.

4) To instruct their people to fear God
and keep His commandments.

5) To teach their followers important
religious and moral tenets and worldly
matters.

6) To guide those who deviated, disobeyed
God, or worshipped other gods or idols.
                                        7
Just One Message!



7) To tell people about their final
destination (the Last Day) and what leads
to Paradise or Hellfire.


       It is the same God who created
and sent those prophets and messengers.
He is the Creator of all humans, all
animals, and all objects. It is this ONE
TRUE GOD who created the whole
universe (including nature) and all it
contains. He is the Creator of life, death,
and life after death.

      The Oneness of this true God, the
Creator, is clearly evident and easily
traceable in the holy scriptures of the
Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others.


                                       8
Just One Message!



       Studying the concept of God in the
Bible and the Qur’an sincerely and
objectively, a sincere seeker of the truth
would be able to discern the unique
qualities belonging to the true God only.

       Some of the qualities that
distinguish this only true God from
others who claim to be God are:

   This true God is Creator, not created.

   This true God is ONE, not three or
   more! He has no partners nor equals.

   This one true God is invisible; no one
   can see Him in this life. He is not
   physically manifested or incarnated in
   other forms.

                                       9
Just One Message!



   This one true God is eternal; He does
   not die or change.


   This one true God is not in need of
   anyone like a mother, a wife, or a son;
   or anything like food, drink, or help.
   But others are in need of Him.

   This one true God is unique in His
   attributes; no one is like Him. No
   human or animal descriptions can be
   attributed to Him.

       We can use these criteria and
qualities (as well as other ones belonging
to Him alone) in examining and rejecting
any claims of being God.



                                      10
Just One Message!


      Now let me turn to discuss the one
message mentioned above and cite some
of the Biblical and Qur’anic verses
confirming the Oneness of God.
      But before that, I would like to
share with you this thought:



        Some Christians might
        wonder, “It is obvious
         that God is one. We
         believe in one God.
        So, what is the point?”




      However, based on a great deal
of reading and studying materials on

                                    11
Just One Message!



Christianity and dialogues with many
Christians, I came to understand that
they perceive this one God to include:

      1- God the Father.
      2- God the Son.
      3- God the Holy Spirit.

       So, based on common sense and
simple logic, a sincere and honest seeker
of the truth could reason:


   What do you mean by saying that
   GOD is ONE, while you refer to
   THREE GODS?

   Is God ONE in THREE or THREE
   in ONE (1 in 3 or 3 in 1)?!

                                     12
Just One Message!



      In addition to that, and according
to Christian dogmas, these three “Gods”
have different identities, images, roles,
and functions:



1. God the Father = the Creator.
2. God the Son = the Savior.
3. God the Holy Spirit= the Counselor.



        By the way, if Jesus, God the Son
(or Son of God) is really God or part of
the one God, doesn’t this contradict what
the Bible itself reports that no one can
see God, nor hear His voice? The Bible
states:

                                     13
Just One Message!



   YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD HIS
   VOICE NOR SEEN HIS FACE.
   (John 5: 37)


   NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN HIM.
   AND NO ONE CAN SEE HIM.
   (1 Timothy 6: 16)


   NO ONE CAN SEE ME AND
   STAY ALIVE. (Exodus 33: 20)



       Based on these and other Biblical
texts, I sincerely and honestly ask: “How
can we reconcile the dogma that Jesus is
God and the Biblical testimony that no
one has ever seen God, nor heard His
voice?”


                                     14
Just One Message!

      Didn’t the Jews at his time, his
family, and his followers SEE Jesus
(God the Son, as some believe!) and
HEAR his voice?
→ Is there any secret or hidden purpose
concerning the truth about God?

      In the Bible, the true God
emphatically testifies, “I am the Lord,
and there is no other god. I have not
spoken in secret or kept my purpose
hidden… I am the Lord, and I speak the
truth; I make known what is right.”
(Isaiah 45: 19)



                   So, what is the truth?
                  Please re-read the verse
                    and think about it!




                                             15
Just One Message!

       Now, let us take off on a journey
of seeking the truth about the one true
God in the Bible and the Qur’an.
       At the end of this journey and after
your critical, sincere, honest, and
thoughtful reading of this booklet and
particularly the verses cited below, I
would like to know your reactions or
views.

         To be as objective as possible,
    I cite the verses without any comment.
        Please read the following verses
         CAREFULLY, CRITICALLY
                       And
    WITHOUT ANY PRECONCEPTIONS.




                                        16

The One True God in the Bible
(The Old Testament):

  Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is
  one Lord. (Deuteronomy 6: 4)


  Has not the One God made and
  sustained for us the spirit of life?
  (Malachi 2: 15)



  You may know and believe Me and
  understand that I am He. Before Me
  no god was formed, nor shall there
  be any after Me. I, I am the Lord,
  and besides Me there is no Savior.
  (Isaiah 43: 10-11)




                                  17
Just One Message!



 I am the first and I am the last;
 besides Me there is no god. Who is
 like Me? (Isaiah 44: 6)

 And there is no other god besides
 Me, a righteous God and a Savior;
 there is none besides Me. Turn to Me
 and be saved…To Me every knee
 shall bow. (Isaiah 45: 21-23)


THESE ARE JUST SOME VERSES
 FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT.



          Can you think of
         other similar ones?

                                 18

The One True God in the Bible
(The New Testament):

  One came and said unto him, Good
  Master, what good thing shall I do,
  that I may have eternal life? And he
  (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest
  thou me good? There is none good
  but one, that is, God. (Matthew 19: 16-17,
  in King James Version)



  Now this is life eternal, that they
  know you, the only true God, and
  Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
  (John 17: 3)




                                        19

 Worship the Lord your God, and
 serve Him only. (Matthew 4: 10)


 Hear O Israel: The Lord our God is
 One Lord. (Mark 12: 29)


 For there is one God and there is one
 mediator between God and men, the
 man Christ Jesus. (1Timothy 2: 5)


       Can you recall other
      verses confirming that
      GOD IS ONLY ONE?

           (NOT THREE!)


                                  20

The One True God in the Qur’an

  Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the
  Eternal, Absolute; He begets not, nor
  is He begotten; and there is none like
  unto Him. (112: 1-4)

  There is no god but I; so worship
  Me. (21: 25)

  They disbelieve who say: Allah (God)
  is one of three, for there is no god
  except One God. If they desist not
  from their word (of blasphemy),
  verily, a grievous chastisement will
  befall the disbelievers among them.
  (5: 73)




                                    21

 Can there be another god besides
 Allah (God)? Nay, most of them
 know not. (27: 61)

 Can there be another god besides
 Allah (God)? High is Allah above
 what they associate with Him. (27: 63)

 Can there be another god besides
 Allah (God)? Say, ‘Bring forth your
 proof, if ye are telling the truth!’
  (27: 64)


   Indeed, this message concerning
   the Oneness of God (i.e.,
   Tawheed in Arabic) is the
   essential theme of the Qur’an.



                                     22
Just One Message!



Conclusions

      These verses as well as hundreds
of similar pieces of evidence in the Bible
and the Qur’an confirm this one, eternal
message that the true God is only ONE.
“Turn to me now and be saved, people
all over the world! I AM THE ONLY
GOD THERE IS.” (Isaiah 45: 22)


      Not only does the Bible affirm that
God is only ONE, but it also reveals that
the true God, the Creator, is the only
Savior. “Before Me no god was formed,
nor shall there be any after Me. I, I am
the Lord, and besides Me there is no
Savior.” (Isaiah 43:10-11)


                                      23
Just One Message!



       So, according to this affirmation,
all other supposed gods or deities like
Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Brahma,
Vishnu, Shiva, Krishna, or Buddha are
neither gods nor manifestations of the
ONE TRUE GOD.

      It was because of such false beliefs
that after the Jews worshipped other
gods, “the Lord’s anger burned against
them.” (Numbers 25: 3) Likewise, Moses
destroyed the golden calf.

      On the other hand, the Essenes, an
early Christian unitarian community,
endured torture and persecution because
they refused to exchange Jesus’
monotheistic teachings for the Pauline
innovation of the trinity.

                                      24
Just One Message!



      To sum up, all God’s prophets
including Adam, Noah, Abraham,
Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were sent
by the same God, the Creator, to convey
the same message:

  The true God is only ONE. Worship
      Him ALONE and keep His
           commandments.

      And since those prophets and
messengers preached the same one
message, their religion must be the
same one! So, what is the religion of
those prophets and messengers?

      Submission to the will of God is
the essence of the message of those
prophets. This word ‘SUBMISSION’
means ‘ISLAM’ in Arabic.
                                   25
Just One Message!



      The Qur’an does confirm that
‘Islam’ is the true religion of all God’s
prophets and messengers. This
Qur’anic fact is also traceable in the
Bible itself! And this is what will be discussed
in the upcoming booklet, God willing!

       Ultimately, to attain salvation, we
must receive and believe in the above-
mentioned message willingly and
wholeheartedly. Nevertheless, doing this
is not enough! We must also believe in
all God’s true prophets (including
Prophet Muhammad) and follow their
true guidance and teachings. This is the
gateway to a happy, eternal life!




                                            26
Just One Message!



       So, if you are a sincere seeker of
truth and a lover of salvation, you might
like to consider this NOW, before it is
too late! BEFORE DEATH! It can be
soon! Who knows?




                     One more thing…




                                       27
Just One Message!



A final thought!



       Those who are sincere,
       honest, serious, objective, and
       open-minded in seeking the
       truth, and after thinking
       critically about this one
       message, they may ask
       questions like:




→ So, what is the truth?

→ What can I do?



                                         28
Just One Message!


You CAN sincerely believe in your only
true God (Allah), believe in His last
messenger, and utter the following:


   I testify that there is no god worthy
   of worship but the One true God
   (Allah) and that Muhammad is the
   messenger of God (Allah).


       This testimony is the first step
       on the way to eternal life and the
       real key to the gate of Paradise.
If you decide to take this way; you can contact
your Muslim friend, the nearest Islamic center, or
me (I will be very happy to help).

       Yes, you can do it!
                                              29

Just One Message _ English

  • 1.
  • 2. Just One Message! Seeking the Truth Series 3 Just One Message! Dr. Naji I. Arfaj 1
  • 3. Just One Message! Dedication To those who seek the truth sincerely, honestly, and open-mindedly! 2
  • 4. Just One Message! Contents Pre-reading Questions 4 Straight to the Point 5 The One God in the Bible 17 The Old Testament The One God in the Bible 19 The New Testament The One God in the Qur’an 21 23 Conclusions 3
  • 5. Just One Message! Pre-reading questions: 1. What is this ‘Just One Message’? 2. What does the Bible say about it? 3. What does the Qur’an say about it? 4. What is your opinion about it? 4
  • 6. Just One Message! Straight to the point A fter the creation of Adam, just one original message has been repeatedly delivered to mankind throughout the history of humanity. Thus, to remind people about it and bring them back on track, many prophets and messengers including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were sent by the only true God to convey this message: The true God is only ONE. Worship Him ALONE and keep His commandments. 5
  • 7. Just One Message! The True God, The Creator sent: to convey: --------- Adam God is One --------- Noah God is One --------- Abraham God is One --------- Moses God is One --------- Jesus God is One --------- Muhammad God is One 6
  • 8. Just One Message! God sent these major prophets as well as many other prophets and messengers to accomplish several tasks and missions, some of which are: 1) To receive guidance from God and deliver it to people. 2) To convey the message that God is One. 3) To be role models to their people. 4) To instruct their people to fear God and keep His commandments. 5) To teach their followers important religious and moral tenets and worldly matters. 6) To guide those who deviated, disobeyed God, or worshipped other gods or idols. 7
  • 9. Just One Message! 7) To tell people about their final destination (the Last Day) and what leads to Paradise or Hellfire. It is the same God who created and sent those prophets and messengers. He is the Creator of all humans, all animals, and all objects. It is this ONE TRUE GOD who created the whole universe (including nature) and all it contains. He is the Creator of life, death, and life after death. The Oneness of this true God, the Creator, is clearly evident and easily traceable in the holy scriptures of the Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others. 8
  • 10. Just One Message! Studying the concept of God in the Bible and the Qur’an sincerely and objectively, a sincere seeker of the truth would be able to discern the unique qualities belonging to the true God only. Some of the qualities that distinguish this only true God from others who claim to be God are: This true God is Creator, not created. This true God is ONE, not three or more! He has no partners nor equals. This one true God is invisible; no one can see Him in this life. He is not physically manifested or incarnated in other forms. 9
  • 11. Just One Message! This one true God is eternal; He does not die or change. This one true God is not in need of anyone like a mother, a wife, or a son; or anything like food, drink, or help. But others are in need of Him. This one true God is unique in His attributes; no one is like Him. No human or animal descriptions can be attributed to Him. We can use these criteria and qualities (as well as other ones belonging to Him alone) in examining and rejecting any claims of being God. 10
  • 12. Just One Message! Now let me turn to discuss the one message mentioned above and cite some of the Biblical and Qur’anic verses confirming the Oneness of God. But before that, I would like to share with you this thought: Some Christians might wonder, “It is obvious that God is one. We believe in one God. So, what is the point?” However, based on a great deal of reading and studying materials on 11
  • 13. Just One Message! Christianity and dialogues with many Christians, I came to understand that they perceive this one God to include: 1- God the Father. 2- God the Son. 3- God the Holy Spirit. So, based on common sense and simple logic, a sincere and honest seeker of the truth could reason: What do you mean by saying that GOD is ONE, while you refer to THREE GODS? Is God ONE in THREE or THREE in ONE (1 in 3 or 3 in 1)?! 12
  • 14. Just One Message! In addition to that, and according to Christian dogmas, these three “Gods” have different identities, images, roles, and functions: 1. God the Father = the Creator. 2. God the Son = the Savior. 3. God the Holy Spirit= the Counselor. By the way, if Jesus, God the Son (or Son of God) is really God or part of the one God, doesn’t this contradict what the Bible itself reports that no one can see God, nor hear His voice? The Bible states: 13
  • 15. Just One Message! YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD HIS VOICE NOR SEEN HIS FACE. (John 5: 37) NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN HIM. AND NO ONE CAN SEE HIM. (1 Timothy 6: 16) NO ONE CAN SEE ME AND STAY ALIVE. (Exodus 33: 20) Based on these and other Biblical texts, I sincerely and honestly ask: “How can we reconcile the dogma that Jesus is God and the Biblical testimony that no one has ever seen God, nor heard His voice?” 14
  • 16. Just One Message! Didn’t the Jews at his time, his family, and his followers SEE Jesus (God the Son, as some believe!) and HEAR his voice? → Is there any secret or hidden purpose concerning the truth about God? In the Bible, the true God emphatically testifies, “I am the Lord, and there is no other god. I have not spoken in secret or kept my purpose hidden… I am the Lord, and I speak the truth; I make known what is right.” (Isaiah 45: 19) So, what is the truth? Please re-read the verse and think about it! 15
  • 17. Just One Message! Now, let us take off on a journey of seeking the truth about the one true God in the Bible and the Qur’an. At the end of this journey and after your critical, sincere, honest, and thoughtful reading of this booklet and particularly the verses cited below, I would like to know your reactions or views. To be as objective as possible, I cite the verses without any comment. Please read the following verses CAREFULLY, CRITICALLY And WITHOUT ANY PRECONCEPTIONS. 16
  • 18. Just One Message! The One True God in the Bible (The Old Testament): Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord. (Deuteronomy 6: 4) Has not the One God made and sustained for us the spirit of life? (Malachi 2: 15) You may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after Me. I, I am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior. (Isaiah 43: 10-11) 17
  • 19. Just One Message! I am the first and I am the last; besides Me there is no god. Who is like Me? (Isaiah 44: 6) And there is no other god besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none besides Me. Turn to Me and be saved…To Me every knee shall bow. (Isaiah 45: 21-23) THESE ARE JUST SOME VERSES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT. Can you think of other similar ones? 18
  • 20. Just One Message! The One True God in the Bible (The New Testament): One came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God. (Matthew 19: 16-17, in King James Version) Now this is life eternal, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (John 17: 3) 19
  • 21. Just One Message! Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only. (Matthew 4: 10) Hear O Israel: The Lord our God is One Lord. (Mark 12: 29) For there is one God and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1Timothy 2: 5) Can you recall other verses confirming that GOD IS ONLY ONE? (NOT THREE!) 20
  • 22. Just One Message! The One True God in the Qur’an Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begets not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him. (112: 1-4) There is no god but I; so worship Me. (21: 25) They disbelieve who say: Allah (God) is one of three, for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily, a grievous chastisement will befall the disbelievers among them. (5: 73) 21
  • 23. Just One Message! Can there be another god besides Allah (God)? Nay, most of them know not. (27: 61) Can there be another god besides Allah (God)? High is Allah above what they associate with Him. (27: 63) Can there be another god besides Allah (God)? Say, ‘Bring forth your proof, if ye are telling the truth!’ (27: 64) Indeed, this message concerning the Oneness of God (i.e., Tawheed in Arabic) is the essential theme of the Qur’an. 22
  • 24. Just One Message! Conclusions These verses as well as hundreds of similar pieces of evidence in the Bible and the Qur’an confirm this one, eternal message that the true God is only ONE. “Turn to me now and be saved, people all over the world! I AM THE ONLY GOD THERE IS.” (Isaiah 45: 22) Not only does the Bible affirm that God is only ONE, but it also reveals that the true God, the Creator, is the only Savior. “Before Me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after Me. I, I am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior.” (Isaiah 43:10-11) 23
  • 25. Just One Message! So, according to this affirmation, all other supposed gods or deities like Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Krishna, or Buddha are neither gods nor manifestations of the ONE TRUE GOD. It was because of such false beliefs that after the Jews worshipped other gods, “the Lord’s anger burned against them.” (Numbers 25: 3) Likewise, Moses destroyed the golden calf. On the other hand, the Essenes, an early Christian unitarian community, endured torture and persecution because they refused to exchange Jesus’ monotheistic teachings for the Pauline innovation of the trinity. 24
  • 26. Just One Message! To sum up, all God’s prophets including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were sent by the same God, the Creator, to convey the same message: The true God is only ONE. Worship Him ALONE and keep His commandments. And since those prophets and messengers preached the same one message, their religion must be the same one! So, what is the religion of those prophets and messengers? Submission to the will of God is the essence of the message of those prophets. This word ‘SUBMISSION’ means ‘ISLAM’ in Arabic. 25
  • 27. Just One Message! The Qur’an does confirm that ‘Islam’ is the true religion of all God’s prophets and messengers. This Qur’anic fact is also traceable in the Bible itself! And this is what will be discussed in the upcoming booklet, God willing! Ultimately, to attain salvation, we must receive and believe in the above- mentioned message willingly and wholeheartedly. Nevertheless, doing this is not enough! We must also believe in all God’s true prophets (including Prophet Muhammad) and follow their true guidance and teachings. This is the gateway to a happy, eternal life! 26
  • 28. Just One Message! So, if you are a sincere seeker of truth and a lover of salvation, you might like to consider this NOW, before it is too late! BEFORE DEATH! It can be soon! Who knows? One more thing… 27
  • 29. Just One Message! A final thought! Those who are sincere, honest, serious, objective, and open-minded in seeking the truth, and after thinking critically about this one message, they may ask questions like: → So, what is the truth? → What can I do? 28
  • 30. Just One Message! You CAN sincerely believe in your only true God (Allah), believe in His last messenger, and utter the following: I testify that there is no god worthy of worship but the One true God (Allah) and that Muhammad is the messenger of God (Allah). This testimony is the first step on the way to eternal life and the real key to the gate of Paradise.
