Al Siratul Mustaqiim: The Missionary Book of Deception

It is known that the Christian missionaries are desperate to resort to the tactics of Paul by using guile and trickery in order to dupe Muslims uneducated in their religion to their worthless cause. Such tactics have been exposed when they attempt to imitate the Islamic calligraphy of Qur’anic verses by applying that calligraphy to the Arabic verses of the New Testament.

The missionaries have now resurfaced with their latest underhand tactics. They have published a small booklet, entitled “Al Siratul Mustaqiim” (The Straight Path) with Qur’anic verses and Islamic imagery on its cover to dupe Muslims into buying it. The title of this booklet itself is taken from Sura’ al-Fatihah, the first chapter of the Qur’an.

However, when one reads the contents of this booklet, it is clear that the discussed issue is far from anything about Islam or its religious practices. It contained selective verses from the Qur’an about the Prophet Jesus(P) and the warped interpretation of Christological implications is applied to these same verses.

  1. this is discusting. as a student in international islamic university malaysia, i felt really sad and mad. these things are clearly wrong and why still no actions from the authorities?

    these things are way over limits..if we didnt prevent it, it will bring bad consequenses to muslim aqidah and in other way, they will praises Jesus not Allah S.W.T.

  2. The Qur’an tells us a lot of wonderful things about Jesus. As a result, believers in the Qur’an love Jesus, honour him, and believe in him. In fact, no Muslim can be a Muslim unless he or she believes in Jesus, on whom be peace.
    The Qur’an says that Jesus was born of a virgin, that he spoke while he was still only a baby, that he healed the blind and the leper by God’s leave, and that he raised the dead by God’s leave.

    What then is the significance of these miracles?

    First, the virgin birth. God demonstrates his power to create in every way. God created everyone we know from a man and a woman. But how about Adam, on whom be peace? God created him from neither a man nor a woman. And Eve from only a man, but not a woman. And, finally, to complete the picture, God created Jesus from a woman, but not a man.

    What about the other miracles? These were to show that Jesus was not acting on his own behalf, but that he was backed by God. The Qur’an specifies that these miracles were performed by God’s leave. This may be compared to the Book of Acts in the Bible, chapter 2, verse 22, where it says that the miracles were done by God to show that he approved of Jesus. Also, note that Jesus himself is recorded in the Gospel of John to have said, “I can do nothing of my own authority” (5:30). The miracles, therefore, were done not by his own authority, but by God’s authority.

    What did Jesus teach? The Qur’an tells us that Jesus came to teach the same basic message which was taught by previous prophets from God—that we must shun every false god and worship only the one true God. Jesus taught that he is the servant and messenger of that one true God, the God of Abraham. These Quranic teachings can be compared with the Bible ( Mark 10:18; Matthew 26:39; John 14:28, 17:3, and 20:17) where Jesus teaches that the one he worshipped is the only true God. See also Matthew 12:18; Acts 3:13, and 4:27 where we find that his disciples knew him as Servant of God.

    The Qur’an tells us that some of the Israelites rejected Jesus, and conspired to kill him, but Allah (God) rescued Jesus and raised him to Himself. Allah will cause Jesus to descend again, at which time Jesus will confirm his true teachings and everyone will believe in him as he is and as the Qur’an teaches about him.

    Jesus is the Messiah. He is a word from Allah, and a spirit from Him. He is honoured in this world and in the hereafter, and he is one of those brought nearest to Allah.

    Jesus was a man who spoke the truth which he heard from God. This can be compared with the Gospel According to John where Jesus says to the Israelites: “You are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God” (John 8:40).

    The Missionaries are hypocrates for just copying selected portions of Quran(sadly).

  3. The only reason the missionaries are using the quranic verses about Jesus in the pamphlet is simply because to show the average muslims that since Jesus is the “word of God” stated by quran itself, therefore it qualifies him to be the Son of God. That’s the main idea behind that pamphlet.

    The problem is that, if the creation of Jesus through the word of God qualifies him as a son of God, then the same can be said to Adam. While it is true that Jesus is a messenger of God, he’s not the only one.There were many who came before him, and all of them preaching the oneness of God.

    Plus, even the Quran said on another verse that the word of God is just too many to write, and that if the sea is used as the ink and the tree as the pen, there won’t be enough.

    Anyway, Jesus didn’t stay long on this earth, telling his disciples that there will be a “paraclytos” hail from the mountains of Param, descended from the “rejected cornerstone”.

  4. Is Arabic calligraphy limited to Islam’s use of the language?!

    Why shouldn’t christian missionaries use koranic verses to highlight what the koran itself says about the prophet Jesus?

    If those verses regarding Jesus have been manipulated, then why don’t you islamists expound on what exactly those verses mean. Convince muslims what those verses actually do “not” say!
