The first person to enter Paradise

bab-jannah-2

:قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم

‏ “آتِي بَابَ الْجَنَّةِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَأَسْتَفْتِحُ فَيَقُولُ الْخَازِنُ مَنْ أَنْتَ فَأَقُولُ مُحَمَّدٌ ‏.‏ فَيَقُولُ بِكَ أُمِرْتُ لاَ أَفْتَحُ لأَحَدٍ قَبْلَكَ” 

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

I will come to the gates of Paradise and ask for them to be opened.  The gatekeeper will ask, “Who are you?” I will say, “Muhammad”.  The gatekeeper will say “I was ordered not to open the gate for anyone else before you.

  1. According to S. 46:8-9, Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 266 and Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 51, Number 16, Muhammad was uncertain whether Allah would save him. This being the case, is this hadith merely wishful thinking or delusion on Muhammed’s part? Where are all the other prophets before Muhammed? Somewhere else? If so, why? If you seek to argue on the basis of S48:2 that Muhammad is in paradise because his past and future sins had been forgiven (a position which is not certain on the basis of the Arabic text which refers to the possibility of sin being forgiven, not certainty), why is the sinless Jesus not in the same paradise? Besides, why is Muhammad still being commanded to ask forgiveness for his sins if Allah had already completely forgiven him? After all, if Allah has already forgiven Muhammad then there is no need to remind or command him to ask to be forgiven. If Muhammad himself had no assurance of salvation, what hope is there for his followers? Why would someone be foolish enough to rely on their eternal fate on the weight of the words of someone who is still in his grave and claimed that he had no idea (in reality he would have had a very good idea since his own conscience would already have condemned him) if was to be saved. As a role model and agent for salvation Muhammad is completely useless.

      It is obvious that you just copy-paste rubbish material from hate site. Im sure you dont even understand what being copy paste. Do you understand classical arabic?  according to tafsir al-Jalalayn which is one of the most authoritative  tafsirs for the study of the Arabic of Qur’an it is said :

      IMG_6527.JPG

       

      The verse are interpreted (مؤول) as the concept of the infallibility or sinlessness  (عصمة)  of all prophets (peace be upon them) against sinning.  The lām in  ليغفر  indicates the final effect  not the cause   through God favour which will bring to a straight path upon which He will establish- the religion of Islam. 

      So  the letter lām in  ليغفر  do not mean denotes possibility but certainty. That what the Qur’an actually says regarding  Q 48:2.

      The reason why i asked was because according to you guys its the real gospel which you say has the true message.

      So tell us what Jesus taught from the koran or what his disciples taught from the koran in regards to the injeel.

      Tell us from the koran what happened to the injeel please.

      I have a whole bookcase of works outside of what is the bible, so you making your little comments are not going to distract me.

      So where is the injeel?

      What message did it contain?

      If it is lost can someone explain and where.

      How was Jesus GIVEN this book?

      Like

    • Defend,
      The four Gospels and Christian scriptures are clearly not the injeel. They make numerous unhistorical claims about Jesus which cannot possibly be true. The injeel is a revelation given by God to Jesus Quran 5:46, it is this that is the injeel and not the fabricated and clearly uninspired books written by your unknown pseudepigraphal authors who wrote forgeries and attributed them back to the names of Patriarchs who had long since passed and could not defend their good names from such lies.

      The Injeel most surely contained the core teaching that is also in Qur’an and Torah that is there is only One God, absolute and unique in his oneness, we should worship only that God, live good lives doing good deeds, repent when we make mistakes, and find salvation through the forgiveness of that One true God. The Qur’an acknowledges that parts of this core message are found in existing scripture but that it is not coterminous with Qur’an.

      Regretfully, the fullness of the Injeel was lost, because of short sighted Christians like yourself, who rather than focusing on that core message and the oneness of God, focused instead on worshipping a mortal man, and were then forced to innovate false doctrines like Trinity, blood sacrifice, atonement by the cross, resurrection etc. in order to justify their own misinterpretations and misunderstandings which they had become entrenched in even up until this day. While they were focused on the religion which they had created about Jesus, they failed to develop a methodology to preserve and maintain the original revelation of Injeel which Jesus had received from God. Now all that remains are questionable stories about Jesus teachings, which may or may not be true.

      The Religion OF Jesus became the Religion ABOUT Jesus.

      So in asking your questions about where is the lost injeel, Christians have no one to blame but themselves for losing it. Don’t point fingers and blame Muslims for by the Grace, blessing and Promise of Allah – we PRESERVED the text which we received.

Indeed, Muslims usually deny that our actual Gospels are the book received by Jesus, since that consisted entirely of revelations from God and not of historical statements about Jesus.” [William Montgomery Watt, Muslim-Christian Encounters.

Clearly, as any fool can see, the followers of Christ have regretfully and carelessly lost the most important piece of evidence that anyone could have lost……..the divinely inspired revelation of God to Jesus – The INJIL.

      You Said, “The gospels are historical narratives which contain what Jesus taught.” LOL! What a joke. No, your own scholars have shown that they are forgeries and fabrications.

      Repeating yourself doesn’t prove your point, so don’t bother.

In reply to your comment that, “Muslims are the ones coming along making all the accusations” This argument didn’t start yesterday when you walked in the door. Muslims could actually care less about your Gospels, and we are really only responding to the initial offensive anti-Islamic accusations that Christians have made toward our faith tradition and beliefs.

      I am saddened even more in that Christians don’t even care to acknowledge what was lost, nor do they seem to even understand the implications of the loss. Unbelievably, they shamefully satisfy themselves with fabricated, forgeries that are not even divinely inspired, and end up with doctrinal beliefs that run totally against the true monotheistic spirit of the religion of Abraham.

      When Adam was created, God gave him the knowledge that the angels do not know. A cow cannot create an aircraft or Samsung galaxy s7 and I do not think an angel can create a smartphone. Human beings can do all these and so have responsible to use our intellect to follow the commands of our God.

      We are responsible for our wish and desires if we insists God died when the Bible clearly states God does not die. So we follow our wish and responsible for that in the day of judgement.

      Jesus did not sin? Babies do not sin either.
      I think Jesus sinned by showing his hatred and insulted poor woman as dog. Ken Temple will say it is a sinful nature and sinfulness and therefore a sin. Ken Temple will say that is a sinful heart to show hatred towards one and that was what Jesus did, so Jesus sinned.

      Jesus ransacked people tables and damaged their property amount to hatred, disorderly conduct, property damage and hate crime.

      It is a pagan religions like the Greeko-Roman traditions that believed a sinless God, person or man when sacrificed can save people and that is why they use to sacrifice babies and they think babies are pure..

      Sounds like Jesus and Muhammad and others (the believers ?) are in heaven with Allah, but have to come out again to be judged on judged on judgement day ?

      In Christianity, one goes strait to heaven or hell at the time of death, Hebrews 9:27
      “It is appointed once for all mankind to die, and then comes the judgment.”

      At the judgment, the bodies of the dead are resurrected and united with their souls and the dead are judged to be thrown into the lake of fire forever. Revelation 20:10-15
      “death and hades (Sheol, grave, holding place of torment until the lake of fire after judgement day) are thrown into the lake of fire.”

  15. Hi Intellect
    You said this…

    Jesus did not sin? Babies do not sin either.
    I think Jesus sinned by showing his hatred and insulted poor woman as dog. Ken Temple will say it is a sinful nature and sinfulness and therefore a sin. Ken Temple will say that is a sinful heart to show hatred towards one and that was what Jesus did, so Jesus sinned.

    Jesus ransacked people tables and damaged their property amount to hatred, disorderly conduct, property damage and hate crime.

    It is a pagan religions like the Greeko-Roman traditions that believed a sinless God, person or man when sacrificed can save people and that is why they use to sacrifice babies and they think babies are pure..

    You are just like all the other Muslims who try to slander Jesus and fail terribly!

    1. You don’t even understand the context of the Matthew 15.

    A. Where you read that Jesus called the woman a dog…please quote.

    B. Where was the hatred and racism in the text?

    C. Jesus healed Roman servant…The Canaanite woman’s daughter…The Samaritan leper yes or no? None of these are Jews…hello

    2. Jesus ransacked people’s tables and property.

    A. These people were ripping off the Gentiles who came to worship it was in the court of Gentiles, the very same people you say Jesus was racist against.

    B. It was to be a place of prayer not for the exchanging of currency for the offering, or selling birds and animals for the offerings

    There are not supposed to be bankers ( money changers) in the court of Gentiles.

    Pagan religions?? What are you talking about half the things Muslims do in their religion is pagan in origin…throwing stones at pillars…running between two hills…walking around the Kaabah… Kissing the black stone which even Muhammad did…hello

      You remarked, “Pagan religions?? What are you talking about half the things Muslims do in their religion is pagan in origin…throwing stones at pillars…running between two hills…walking around the Kaabah… Kissing the black stone”

      The traditional rituals of Hajj were established by Abraham himself and his son Ishmael, as a way to honor and worship God. It is no secret that after a long period their Ishmaelite descendants backslided into Idolatry, and later with advent of Prophet Muhammad a direct descendant of Ishmael, the rituals of Hajj were re purified and House of Kaaba re consecrated for worship of the One true almighty God Allah.

      The history of the Ishmaelites in this case is similar to their cousins the Israelite Jews who also fell into idolatry at various times in their history, and their rituals were turned to paganism. But like the Ishmaelites, they too later came to their senses and re purified their rituals. http://www.bible-archaeology.info/idols.htm

      The important thing to remember here is that Islam and Judaism have been purified of paganism and Idolatry, while Christianity has not. I think the reason that you and those like you keep throwing this accusation out is simply to divert attention away from the following things about Christianity:

      Sol invictus, sun worship, Idolatry, Mary worship, Christmas (Winter Solstice, Saturnalia), Candlemas (Imbolc, traditional quarter day) Easter (close to spring equinox), St. John’s Day (summer solstice). St. Michael and All Saints (fall Equinox). HALLOWEEN (a.k.a. lailat ash-Shaytan). 25th December is the birthday of the god Mithras. Mass, one of the key traditions in Roman Catholicism, has components of sun worship rather than Christ-worship. Trinitarian Godhead (originating from the Cult of Osirus). worship of Greco -Roman Man God ( originating from Greek Roman mythological pagan traditions). Not to mention the very paganistc practice of atonement by Blood Sacrifice.

      The list keeps going. The point is that accusing Judaism or Islam of paganism will get you nowhere since it only backfires and highlights the fact that –

      Trinitarian Greco Roman Man God worshipping Christianity is the biggest paganistic cult in disguise the world has ever known!!!

      it is not jesus’ temple. . jesus used violent action on a people who did not bully or damage him. the people were slave labourers , maybe working for their boss who forced them to work. jesus prefer to drive out traders who needed to support their life with the little they had. notice we don’t see in the text how jesus SUPPORTED the traders after he drove them out?
      so if jesus uses violence it is okay, but if anyone else uses violence then it is not okay?

      “he has every right…”

      while the romans are wrecking up the rest of jerusalem?
      macho man among slave labourers, but chiken in front of military?

Many writers have suggested that the Tyre currency was preferred because it did not defy the Decalogue by depicting the graven image of a foreign king, and that is true. But the Tyre coins portray a pagan god of Tyre, Melqarth-Herakles—which was certainly even more offensive!”
