There is no time and space here to prove from the text of the gospels that the words of 'Eesaa alayhis salaam concerning the Oneness of Allah are a far cry from the language of the Trinitarians. I tried to find the truth about the Oneness of Allah in Christianity but failed. However I tried to heed the words of 'Eesaa alayhis salaam "Knock and the door will open. Seek and you will find ..." (Mt.7:7)
Islaam reveals to me the correct concept of monotheism that the Oneness of Allah is absolute. There is no mystery about this truth. 'Eesaa alayhis salaam when asked of the greatest thing in faith confirmed "The most important one is this: Hear 0 Israel the Lord is our Allah the Lord is One." (MK. 12:29)
I have not the slightest doubt that 'Eesaa alayhis salaam and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam are Servants of the same Allah. No impartial examiner of truth can fail to recognise the unequivocal teaching of the two prophets concerning the Oneness of Allah the Most High. The true conception of the Oneness of Allah the Most High is to me light from darkness and confusion. It is true that when one discovers true Islaam it is most unthinkable to reject the message. Islaam distinguishes the truth about Allah's absolute Oneness. The Islamic call was a faint one from the beginning gradually growing stronger and stronger as I grew into my adulthood. At an early age the puzzling trinity was a bitter pill to swallow with the illogical 1+1+1= 1. During my high school years I was tempted with almost endless freedom. There was enough of it to revoke just about every moral code there was. A strange manner of worship became known to me. My teachers persuaded me to join Christian cultists but my heart said 'No!' Noise temporal joys and emotional swerves were not my kind of baits. I was careful not to become the non-Catholics because the non-Catholics were the 'heretics'. We learnt about the faults of the heretical churches but were never encouraged to discuss them openly. Then I learnt that the 'heretics' do play the same game too but often better. The cultists manner of singing uncontrollably shedding tears while strumming expensive guitars did not impress me. These Christians brag as if Allah would not test their faith not to mention Shaytaan. If Shaytaan had the privilege to test 'Eesaa alayhis salaam then think what he can do with the meek soul of a mortal. The cultists deceive themselves.
Catholics could not prove to me why I should not worship with the Protestants who are also Trinitarians. During my undergraduate years the long accepted 'pagan' world opened to me the availability of books on major non-Christian faiths. Hinduism Buddhism and Islaam attracted me during my readings. It occurred to me that I was searching for a religion that defined the absolute Oneness of Allah. The former two faiths lost my favour because of their ambiguous definitions of the Supreme Deity. Islaam's bold definition of the Supreme Deity attracted me strongly "There is none worthy of worship save Allah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the Messenger of Allah". The Bible contains many metaphorical statements the true meaning of which can only be grasped if Christendom can present the unaltered text of the original gospel of 'Eesaa alayhis salaam. The failure to do so has sprouted numerous Bible versions. The Methodists would not read a Jehovah's Bible the Jehovahs will not read the Anglican's and the Baptists will not read the Duay and so on. The high pressure Christian fundamentalism which sprouted in the US in great numbers acts to play down the great schism by calling themselves multi denominational. It seems Christianity ought to stress the literal interpretation of the Bible but which version? After deep thought I decided to pursue three questions:
IS 'EESAA ALAYHIS SALAAM ALLAH?
'Eesaa alayhis salaam is not Allah. In the Bible 'Eesaa alayhis salaam taught that Allah is One. See Mark 12:29 John 17:3 Mt. 19:17 etc. 'Eesaa alayhis salaam prayed frequently. I asked to whom did he submit if he was Allah himself? If 'Eesaa alayhis salaam died did Allah die? No! The glorious Qur'aan confirms that 'Eesaa alayhis salaam was a man. (Qur'aan 5:17 75)
IS GOD AN INDIVIDUAL?
Allah is Absolutely One. See Mark 12:28-30 John 20:17 Mt. 19: 16-17 etc. Soorah Ikhlaas of the Glorious Qur'aan defines the Purity of Allah the Most High "Say Allah is One. Allah is Absolute and Eternal. He begets not nor was He begotten. There is nothing like unto Him."
WHAT IS THIS ISLAAM?
It is a total way of life designed by Allah the Most High since creation but organised and perfected through the last Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Today it is a revolution commanding mankind to achieve all the good in this world and in the Hereafter. Everyday life must reflect Worship of Allah the Most High. A Muslim means one who submits himself/herself to Allah the Most High. Christians must appreciate the fact that 'Eesaa alayhis salaam submitted totally to the Will of Allah the Most High; thus he was a perfect Muslim. 'Eesaa alayhis salaam heralded the coming of the spirit of Truth the long awaited prophet like Moosaa alayhis salaam (i.e. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam) 'Eesaa's (alayhis salaam) gospel was a foreword to the glorious Qur' aan the permanent revelation. Know this truth and the truth shall set you free.
Thus I have come to know and accept Islaam - the Straight Path.
