Introduction
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
I am grateful to Allah for the opportunity to read the manuscript of Muslim
Christian Dialogue and for being asked to write an introduction to this
remarkably eye opening booklet. Anyone interested in comparative religion
will find in this booklet many surprises that challenge what many once
believed to be absolute truths.
This work by Dr. Hasan M. Baagil reflects his meticulous and painstaking
effort to present his findings clearly, concisely, and thoroughly. As a result
of his study of Christianity and the Bible over a four year period, Dr. Baagil,
a dedicated Muslim, learned that Christians differ in their basic beliefs (i.e.,
the Trinity, the divinity of Jesus, etc.), that Church doctrine contradicts the
Bible numerous times, and that the Bible even contradicts itself! His
conversations with Christian clergy and laity during this period of study
have provided the impetus for the Muslim Christian Dialogue.
The reader will be surprised to learn that, in the Bible, Jesus (pbuh) never
claimed to be God; that he did not die on the cross; that the miracles
performed by him were also performed by many other prophets and even by
disbelievers; and that Jesus himself prophesied the advent of the Prophet
Muhammad, peace be upon both of them. All of these plus much more are
detailed from clear and concise passages of the Bible. The question that
obviously must be raised after witnessing such clear contradictions is: Is the
Bible God’s Word? The effort here by Dr. Baagil is not intended to deride
Christian people, and certainly not to mock Jesus and his teachings, as Allah
forbids such activities. The intent is only to point out that false charges,
misrepresentations, and outright lies against Allah and His prophets are in
themselves both deriding and mocking in nature.
Muslim Christian Dialogue also makes clear the Islamic view and shows
how the Qur’an, revealed to the Prophet Muhammad some six hundred years
after Jesus, peace be upon both of them, corrects the errors that crept
(knowingly or unknowingly) into the message that Jesus brought. This
booklet should prove to be a very valuable asset to Muslims and Christians,
particularly given the interest in dialogues between the two
