Irfan al-Huq for VT Dhaka, Bangladesh.
In the name of the Most compassionate and the Most merciful God (Allah).
We begin with the story, well documented in the book of traditions, of His Excellency Ali bin Abi Talib ( pubh), the First Imam of the Shia sect of Islam and a very intelligent Jewish man from the Jewish Supremacist club.
Imam Ali, at that time, was the ruler of a vast territory, which consisted of present day Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, KUWAIT, Palestine and a good part of Egypt. Being the Supreme Spiritual leader of the Muslim world, his duty was to lead the Friday congregational prayer, which takes place just after mid day.
Once, on a Friday, the ever punctual Imam was walking on his way to the mosque. An Arab Jewish man was waiting on the road, to prevent him from reaching the mosque on time, and also to humiliate him infront of others with a question, he was very sure that, the Imam will not be able to answer fully or without a mistake.
When Imam Ali got near, the Jewish man raised his voice to attract some spectators and placed himself in front of Imam Ali and said: ” O Ali, People say you are the successor of the knowledge of Prophet Mohammad and that you possess immense knowledge . I have a question for you, see if you can answer that.”
Imam Ali said, “What is the question? “
The Jewish man said,” Which creatures lay eggs and which creatures give birth to babies?” He was expecting Imam Ali to start counting them on fingers and by doing that will be late for his prayers and may also miss out some names of the birds and animals while in a hurry . Imam Ali realized his intention and simply answered,
“The creatures who have their ears inside, lay eggs and the creatures who have their ears outside, give birth to babies. Now, you can count them yourself.” Saying this, Imam left him and continued towards the mosque, and the Jewish Supremacist found himself completely baffled and utterly humiliated in front people.
It is said, Imam Ali (pubh) had complete and accurate knowledge of this world’s creation and it’s creatures , which he inherited from Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his infallible family) in the form of a Holy Light, which he subsequently transferred from his chest to his descendant Imams before his martyrdom.
Imam Ali, (pubh) 1400 years ago, taught his children and desciples a great information that we need today, which was later revealed by his great grand son Abu Jafar( peace be upon him), the fifth Imam, who is mentioned in the Holy Torah as ‘Baqir'”:
التفسير (للعیاشی) ج ۲، ص ۲۳۸
عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ يَقُولُ: لَقَدْ خَلَقَ اَللَّهُ فِي اَلْأَرْضِ مُنْذُ خَلَقَهَا سَبْعَةَ عَالَمِينَ لَيْسَ هُمْ مِنْ وُلْدِ آدَمَ، خَلَقَهُمْ مِنْ أَدِيمِ اَلْأَرْضِ فَأُسْكِنُوهَا وَاحِداً بَعْدَ وَاحِدٍ مَعَ عَالَمِهِ، ثُمَّ خَلَقَ اَللَّهُ آدَمَ أَبَا هَذَا اَلْبَشَرِ وَ خَلَقَ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ مِنْهُ،
Mohammad bin Muslim says:”I have heard Abu Jafar, peace be upon him, say:’ Verily Allah had created in the earth, since it’s creation, seven worlds of creatures; none of them were from the Children of Adam, created them from the soil of the earth, so they lived one after another with their world of creatures ; after some time Allah created Adam, the father of this mankind and created his descendants from him.”
(Source: Exegesis of Quran by Al Ayashi, Vol: 2, page 237)
The history of the creation of Adam and Eve was also tempered by the lying Supremacists, to satisfy their male ego to prove their wives were inferior to them. The Supremacists invented the story that Eve was created from one of the left ribs of Adam. In this regard Imam Ali said, “Allah created Eve from the same soil that remained after creating Adam (peace be upon them both).”
Supremacism in any form, instigates killing others unjustly . It has been the root cause of many bloodsheds and great wars in this world and is still destroying the good neighborliness among people of different faiths and cultures.
In the past century, it is well documented, Hitler aroused the Germans with the emotion of the Supremacism of German race. To prove he was right, he alone got into war with eleven countries, which was very suicidal. At the end, he got his country destroyed, his nation badly wounded and humiliated for ages.
You must not forget the Japanese people here, who invaded China and Korea in the past, to prove their supremacy over them. A well educated Japanese woman told me that, before the second world war, they used to believe that their Emperor was the son of the Sun God, so they concluded that the Japanese race was superior . But after losing the war to the Americans, many of them realised that it was not true. Like the Germans, supremacism brought them complete destruction , utter humiliation and subjugation to this day.
The Holy Quran mentions that, Satan was the first Race Supremacist. When he, a Jin, along with all the angels, lost to Adam in a competition of knowledge of the Unseen. They angels recognised without objection, but Satan refused to accept the kind hearted Adam’s greatness for his vast knowledge of the Unseen world and declared arrogantly to Allah, “I am better than him, I am made of fire, and he is made of clay
(Quran, 2:30-34) According to Satan, knowledge and good conduct were not the scale of superiority, but the destructive power of the fire was. So, Allah cursed him and banished him forever from the Garden.
The English White Supremacists killed hundreds of thousands in Australia, Africa and Asia. The White European immigrants to North America killed hundreds of thousands of natives with contempt for their skin color and culture and brought in Black Africans in shackles to work for them as slaves. No one can deny that the root cause of their savagery was Race Supremacism.
Donald Rumsfeld was one of the Zionist Jews, who believed in Jewish Supremacism. By fabricating documents on Iraq’s ballistic weapons, Rumsfeld inspired American politicians and the military to attack Iraq, which killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims.
Have you seen any of the Zionists upset with that, ever? Any repentance?
Jewish Supremacism does not allow any regret for grave sins and mistakes.
From the very inception of the illegal state of Israel, the foreign Jews from Europe and USA have been very brutal towards the native Palestinian Muslims and Christians. I believe they inherited this trait from their forefathers and cannot leave this nature due to their Supremacist belief. Before Jesus (peace be upon him) arrived in Jerusalem, God sent hundreds of prophets to the Jewish people in the Middle East.
Rebelious Jews killed many of them, because they asked them for moderation. It is said, in the Shia books of traditions that, once the Jews killed fifty of God’s prophets in one day and after sunset they washed their hands and sat at the dinner table, as if nothing had happened. The Holy Quran says:
“Then because of their breaking of covenant, their defiance of Allah’s signs, their killing of the prophets unjustly and for their saying, ‘Our hearts are uncircumcised.’ Rather Allah has set a seal on them for their unfaith, so they do not have faith except a few. And their faithlessness, and their uttering a monstrous calumny against Mary.”
In answer to the monstrous calumny against Mary, that pervaded among the Jews, Allah sent these beautiful verses to prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his infallible family) praising Holy Mary and Jesus ( peace be upon them both):
“Indeed Allah chose Adam and Noah, and the progeny of Abraham and the progeny of Imran above all the nations; some of them are descendants of the others, and Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing.
When the wife of Imran (Omran) said, ‘My Lord, I dedicate to You in consecration what is in my belly. Accept it from me; indeed You are the All-hearing, the All- knowing.’
When she bore her, she said, ‘My Lord, I have borne a female [child]’—and Allah knew better what she had borne, and the female [child] is not like the male. And I have named her Mary, and I commend her and her offspring to Your care against [the evil of] the outcast Satan.’
Thereupon her Lord accepted her with a gracious acceptance, and made her grow up in a worthy fashion, and He charged Zechariah with her care. Whenever Zechariah visited her in the sanctuary, he
would find provisions with her. He said, ‘O Mary, from where does this come for you?’ She said, ‘It comes from Allah. Allah provides whomever He wishes without any reckoning.’
Thereat Zechariah supplicated his Lord. He said, ‘My Lord! Grant me a good offspring from You! Indeed You hear all supplications.’
Then, as he stood praying in the sanctuary the angels called out to him: ‘Allah gives you the good news of John, as a confirmer of a ‘Word of Allah’ eminent and chaste, a prophet, and one of the righteous.’
He said, ‘My Lord, how shall I have a son while old age has overtaken me and my wife is barren?’ Said He, ‘So it is that Allah does whatever He wishes.’
He said, ‘My Lord, grant me a sign.’ Said He, ‘Your sign is that you will not speak to people for three days except in gestures. Remember Your Lord much, and glorify Him morning and evening.’
And when the angels said, ‘O Mary, Allah has chosen you and purified you, and He has chosen you above the world’s women.
O Mary, be obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow down with those who bow [in worship].’
These accounts are from the Unseen, which We reveal to you, and you were not with them when they were casting lots [to see] which of them would take charge of Mary’s care, nor were you with them when they were contending.
When the angels said, ‘O Mary, Allah gives you the good news of a Word from Him whose name is Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, distinguished in the world and the Hereafter and one of those brought
near [to Allah].
He will speak to the people in the cradle and in adulthood, and will be one of the righteous.’
She said, ‘My Lord, how shall I have a child, seeing that no human has ever touched me?’ He said, ‘So it is that Allah creates whatever He wishes. When He decides on a matter He just says to it ‘‘Be!’’ and it is.
He will teach him the Book and wisdom, the Torah َ and the Evangel and [he will be] an apostle to the Children of Israel, [and he will declare,] “I have certainly brought you a sign from your Lord: I will create for you the form of a bird out of clay, then I will breathe into it, and it will become a bird by Allah’s leave. I heal the blind and the leper and I revive the dead by Allah’s leave. I will tell you what you have eaten and what you have stored in your houses. There is indeed a sign in that for you, should you be faithful.
And [I come] to confirm [the truth of] that which is before me of the Torah, and to make lawful for you some of the things that were forbidden you. I have brought you a sign from your Lord; so be wary of
Allah and obey me.
Indeed Allah is my Lord and your Lord; so worship Him. This is a straight path.” ’
When Jesus sensed their faithlessness, he said, ‘Who will be my helpers [on the path] toward Allah?’ The Disciples said, ‘We will be helpers of Allah. We have faith in Allah, and you be witness that we have submitted [to Him]. Our Lord, we believe in what You have sent down, and we follow the apostle, so write us among the witnesses.’
Then they plotted [against Jesus], and Allah also devised, and Allah is the best of devisers.
When Allah said, ‘O Jesus, I shall take you[r soul], and I shall raise you up toward Myself, and I shall clear you of [the calumnies of] the faithless, and I shall set those who follow you above the faithless until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me will be your return, whereat I will judge between you concerning that about which you used to differ.
As for the faithless, I will punish them with a severe punishment in the world and the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers.’
But as for those who have faith and do righteous deeds, He will pay them in full their rewards, and Allah does not like the wrongdoers.
These that We recite to you are from the signs and the Wise Reminder.
Indeed the case of Jesus with Allah is like the case of Adam: He created him from dust, then said to him, ‘Be,’ and he was.
This is the truth from your Lord, so do not be among the skeptics.”
[According to the documents available with Shia sect of Islam, Jesus was born after only nine hours from his inception in his mother’s womb]
These verses clearly prove Prophet Mohammad ( peace be upon him and his infallible family) was never an anti-Christ, rather a great ally of Jesus and his Holy mother ( peace be upon them both).
