Salvation In Islam and Christianity
What is Original Sin?
Romans 5:12, "Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned;"
Because Adam and Eve sinned, sin came in this world. That's what we see in this world, full of sin and violence. Before sin came in this world, Adam and Eve never knew any sin nor violence. They never knew what death and curse was. They never knew what was to sweat and do hard work. They never knew what tears or sorrow was. They were in perfect peace and happiness. They had fellowship with God.
But only one sin made every difference. If we read in Genesis
Chapter 3, we can see that not only did God curse Adam, Eve and the serpent
but He also cursed the ground. Genesis 3:17 - 19 Then to Adam He said,
"Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from
the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it':
"Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth
for you, And you shall eat the herb of the field. In the
These verses clearly says that because of the sin of Adam and Eve, thorn and thistles started growing. Men had to do hard work for his living and women had to go through pain in childbirth etc. And more than this, both Adam and Eve lost the fellowship of God. They were alienated from God and His presence. They died spiritually. Today, the same blood is flowing through us, the same corrupted blood. That's why David says in Psalms 51:5, "Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me." David describes here about the sinful nature that we got from Adam and Eve. That's is the reason we bend towards evil and whatever comes in our heart is evil. But the same Bible that says about the sinful nature of us, says about the redemption of our sins.
Sura 7:22. So by deceit he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies. And their Lord called unto them: "Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy unto you?"
Sura 7:23. They said: "Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: If thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy, we shall certainly be lost."
Sura 7:24. ((Allah)) said: "Get ye down. With enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood,- for a time."
Sura 7:25. He said: "Therein shall ye live, and therein shall ye die; but from it shall ye be taken out (at last)."
Sura 7:26. O ye Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover your shame, as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness,- that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition!
All these verses say about the fall of Adam and repentance and forgiveness of sin. These verses also say that because of the sin of Adam, curse and death came in this world. Their shame became manifest to them and they started sew cloths for them.. And further we read that God gave them the raiment to cover their shame, as well as to be an adornment to them.
And the same thing Bible says in Genesis 3:21, "Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them."
From where the skin came? Certainly God sacrifice an animal to cover the shame of Adam and Eve. The same thing Jesus did on the cross. To cover our shame and shameful act, to cover our sins and consequences of sin, to cover our take our guilt and sinful nature from us, He died on the cross. He shed His precious blood on the cruel cross for me and for you so that we may never be in shame and sin.
We Need a Savior
Because we are born in sin thats why we bent towards evil and sin. David says in Psalms 51:5, "Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me." We can not come out from our sinful nature by our good deeds or by our own efforts. Yes, we need a Savior, we need a Messiah who can rescue us from our sins.
Genesis 3:19, "In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return."
This verse says, "Dust you are" it means they were created by dust as the Bible says in Gen 2:7, "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." And the verse no. Genesis 3:17 says that, "And to dust you shall return." This verse clearly says that man/woman will die(they will return to dust). And more than this, Bible says about SPIRITUAL DEATH. We are made up of 3 parts, 1. Soul, 2. Body, 3. Mind
So when God said to Adam, "You will surely die" then He meant that, You will did spiritually. Thats what happened in the garden of Eden. Adam and Eve sinned but they did not die immediately (physically) but the moment they sinned they died spiritually. Their soul became dead and they separated from God because there is no sin in God and God can not be with those who sin.
Yes, Adam sinned and brought death and curse in this world, but Jesus came and died on the cross, He shed His precious blood to save us from eternal death, tears, sorrow, pain and curse. He came down to give us eternal life. We can receive this wonderful life which Adam and Eve had in the garden of Eden - a life full of blessings, a life full of peace and joy. If you have not yet received this life, today is the day of salvation. Invite Jesus into your life and your life will never be the same again.
My dear friend, we are all under curse thats why we see this much misery and pain in this world and if we want to come out from our sins, there is only one way i.e. the blood of Jesus. Jesus Himself said in Matthew 26:28, "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
And Jesus said in John 8:34-36, Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."
How can we get Salvation?
1. Realize that you are sinner:-
2. Confess from your mouth:-
3. Repent from your sins:-
4. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior:- By faith accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior of your life and invite Him in your life. When a person do this his/her life changes and he/she becomes a new creation
5. New creation:- 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
6. Promise of eternal life:-
Mohammad Wasn't Sure about Salvation
Jabir reported that the Prophet of Islam said: "No good works of yours can ever secure heaven for you, nor can they save you from hell -- not even me, without the grace of God."
Abu Huraira related that when the verse, "Cause thy near relatives to fear," was revealed to the Prophet of Islam, the Prophet arose and began to proclaim: "Oh people of the Quraysh, and you sons of Abdul Manaf, and you Abbas, son of Abdul Muttalib, and you, Safiyyah my aunt, I cannot save you from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection. Take care of yourself, O my daughter Fatimah; you may use my property, but I cannot save you from God. Take care of yourself" (Bukhari).
Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet of Islam said: "No one of you will enter Paradise through his good works." They said: "Not even you, O Apostle of God?" "Not even I," he replied, "unless God cover me with His grace and mercy. Therefore be strong, and morning and evening, nay every moment, try to do good."
Mohmmad's prayer asking forgiveness:
Volume 1, Book 12, Number 711:
There is no Salvation in Islam
Allah Promised hell for his followers:
This Suras from Quran very clearly says that after death everyone will go to hell fire then judgment.. When a person went to hell fire then how and why it is possible that he/she can come out from hell fire and go to paradise.. no way.. This verse does not say anything about eternal life. This verse very clearly says that every believer in Allah is tasting death means they did not get the life while Jesus promised eternal life and heaven as we read in
John 10:10 "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
And also every soul is going to hell fire till the day of
judgment means they are not reaching heaven. So of course Allah promised
hell fire for his believers. I said "no way" for coming out
from the hell fire and go to heaven. There is no chance to go to heaven
once you go to hell fire... But yes, Jesus can save you when you are still
in this world as He said in John 3:15 "that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have eternal life.
Allah promised hell fire for his followers but contrary to it Jesus promised heaven for His followers.
