“….AND GOD DIED…” 6 OF 6
So, the Islamic doctrine says that the ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS (NOT ORIGINAL SINS) of God to Adam & His descendants demands engaging in righteous deeds as a form of appreciation, hoping for a return to paradise as a reward & sincere repentance to God when we fall into sins now & then. This cycle of internal struggle aimed at excellence in piety & suppression of evil continues till we are saved from Hell and admitted to paradise only by the Mercy of God. Islam is a religion that never teaches injustice & irrationality such as ORIGINAL SIN. Islam teaches that everyone is born pure and it is humans who corrupt themselves. So this is a lesson of ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS AND NOT ORIGINAL SIN. God does not create us as sinners. He creates us pure and then we commit sin and make ourselves impure. The ultimate forgiveness is an unconditional forgiveness. “And no bearer of burdens shall bear another’s burden…” [35:18]. This refutes totally the idea of original sin.
Salvation can only be attained through fulfilling commands/Laws, not just by irrationally believing that God died for our sins, so we are free to commit more. “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven”. Mathew 5: 17-20.
“And they say, ‘None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.’ Say, ‘Produce your proof if you are truthful.’”[2:111]
Islam offers a guarantee to every sincere Muslim who obeys & WORSHIPS Allah alone and remains in this state of devotion until he dies, that he will definitely enter Paradise. [4:122, 5:9]
Islam also guarantees the disbeliever who worships other than Allah & ignores the commands of Allah that he will definitely enter Hell. “This is Hell which you were promised! Burn therein this Day, for that you used to disbelieve!” [36:63-64], [9:68]
So, the believer keeps on striving, fearing and hoping, until he meets his Lord, believing in Tawheed (Divine Unity) and doing righteous deeds, and earns the pleasure of his Lord and Paradise. These are the right motives for action, and that righteousness cannot be achieved in this life in any other way.
Allah says “Whosoever does a righteous good deed, it is for (the benefit of) his own self; and whosoever does evil, it is against his own self. And your Lord is not at all unjust to (His) slaves”[Q 41:46] .“Every person is a pledge for what he has earned”.[Q 74:38].
How can we expect all people to believe in ONLY ONE TRUE, UNCREATED, NOT-BEGOTTEN & UNCRUCIFIABLE GOD Allah given their varying- backgrounds, societies and cultures? For people to be responsible for worshipping Allah they all have to have access to knowledge of Allah. The final revelation teaches that all mankind have the recognition of Allah imprinted on their souls, a part of their very nature with which they are created.
In Quran 7:172-173; Allah explained that when He created Adam, He caused all of Adam’s descendants to come into existence and took a pledge from them saying, Am I not your Lord? To which they all replied, ” Yes, we testify to It:’
Allah then explained why He had all of mankind bear witness that He is their creator and only true God worthy of worship. He said, “That was In case you (mankind) should say on the day of Resurrection, “Verily we were unaware of all this.” That is to say, we had no idea that You Allah, were our God. No one told us that we were only supposed to worship You alone. Allah went on to explain That it was also In case you should say, “Certainly It was our ancestors who made partners (With Allah) and we are only their descendants; will You then destroy us for what those liars did?” Thus, every child is born with a natural belief in Allah and an inborn inclination to worship Him alone called in Arabic the “Fitrah”.
If the child were left alone, he would worship Allah in his own way, but all children are affected by those things around them, seen or unseen.
The Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah said, “I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray”. Messenger of Allaah (saw) said: “Every child is born in a state of fitrah (the natural state of sinlessness, submission, ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS , then his parents make him into a Jew or a Christian or a Magian.” (Agreed upon).
So, just as the child submits to the physical laws which Allah has put in nature, his soul also submits naturally to the fact that Allah is his Lord and Creator. But, his parents try to make him follow their own way and the child is not strong enough in the early stages of his life to resist or oppose the will of his parents. The religion which the child follows at this stage is one of custom and upbringing and Allah does not hold him to account or punish him for this religion until he is able to distinguish error from right if he willingly chooses not to. Islam gives us time to grow up and be able to use our rationale and reason in order to choose a religion. This time is the age of puberty. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “There are three (persons) whose actions are not recorded: a sleeper till he awakes, a child till he reaches puberty, and a lunatic till he comes to reason”.(Abu dawud).
When there is sin – whether a person has committed it or genetically inherited it according to Paul, why can’t this sin be erased through sincere repentance to the most loving & forgiving God? Forgiveness of sins through the sinner’s repentance is what befits the kind and merciful God – not sacrifice by crucifixion & shedding of blood of god for God. As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities. In fact, the Paulins/Christians absurd believe already lead them into the greatest oppression & atrocity called idolatry (shirk).This idolatrous atrocity is in the form of annual celebration of the Death of GOD. It is nothing but a Marriage of convenience between Paganism of the church TRINITY & ancient pagan “GODDESS OF FERTILITY ISHTAR” symbolised by bunny, eggs etc. that evolved to the Easter of today. “ISHTAR”. . . a rebirth that is commemorated around the vernal equinox, historically a time of pagan celebration that coincides with the arrival of spring and symbolizes the arrival of light, awakening of life around us & increased fertility which is represented by the fertile animal, the bunny. Now, “EASTER” eggs, bunny, candy. TAKE A STAND, DON’T PARTAKE IN PAGANISM. This interwoven Christian paganism & ancient pagan traditions have been popularized by capitalist commercialization. Did You Know? Over 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are made each year. It is inconceivable, ungodly, illogical & forbidden for any rational thinking human to celebrate the death & resurrection of God CALLED JESUS OR EASTER.
