In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

Bismillah. We have heard these words above many times, but how often do we think about what these words mean? Truly God is great and worthy of our praise in all situations. Subhaanallah.

What is the right path? We also know that God is called AL-HAKAM, AL-FATTH (The Judge). He is AL-'ADL (The Just). Truly God knows all--everything that we ever do. He is AL-'ALM (the All-Knowing). Though we try to do right, we know we often do wrong. But God, full of Compassion and Mercy, is also forgiving (AL-GAFR). He leads us on the right path through holy teachings and special guidance from His Spirit.

There have been many considered as prophets who have come to the world -- Mohammed, Musa, Isa... Each one had a specific message for their time. God gave the Prophet Musa (pbuh) the Ten Commandments. Musa (pbuh) prophesied that He would raise up another Prophet, one like himself. This was a direct reference to the Prophet Isa.

Isa expounded the words of Prophet Musa (pbuh). He said, "You have heard it said by them of old, 'Thou shalt not commit adultery', but I say unto you, that whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." (Injil, Book of Matthew 5:28) He said that if we as much as get angry without a cause, we are in danger of Judgment, and that "every idle word a man speaks, he will give an account thereof on the Day of Judgment."

The teaching that Isa brought was that each of us has broken the Law of Musa (pbuh). Who of us hasn't looked with lust?

The Holy Book says that if we as much as hate someone, we commit murder in our heart (Injil, Book of 1 John 3:14-16). If we have told one lie, or stolen one thing, then we are lying thieves.

So what should we do to avoid being found guilty on Judgment Day? How can we escape the damnation of Hell? Should we live good lives? That won't help. This is why:

    If I murder on Monday and live a good life for the rest of the week, I am still a murderer.

    If I lie and steal, no amount of good works or time can remove the fact that I am a lying thief. Should a righteous judge acquit a mass murderer or a vicious rapist because he had become a virtuous person since his crime?

Each of us is guilty of sinning against the Law of God, and no amount of righteous living, praying, or good works can wash away the stain of our guilt. To be cleansed, we need a Savior -- the very Spirit of God -- who has the authority to wash away our sins.

There lies the uniqueness of the Prophet Isa. He claimed that He had the authority to forgive sins. He said that he came down to this earth to die for the sins of the world.

Every one of us has broken the Law of God. We are in debt to Eternal Justice, and the Law calls for our blood. Its fearful penalty is death and eternal damnation. However, the Savior Isa paid the fine for us. He revealed God's great love for us by taking our punishment. Then He rose from the dead, defeating death itself, and now all who repent of sin and trust in Him as Savior and Lord receive remission of sins. He removes sin once and for all. God then may justly grant salvation (eternal life) to all who trust in Him. Isa said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but through Me." (Injil, Book of John 14:6)

Without Isa, no matter what works we do, we will perish no matter what we believe. He is the only way to Paradise, "the only Name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Injil, Book of Acts 4:12) There is no other Savior -- "Whosoever transgresses and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God" (Injil, 2 John 1:9). Read what Dawud (pbuh) said in Psalm 51 (Al-Zabur, Psalm 51), and make it your own prayer. Read the Bible daily, obey what you read -- by the grace of God, you will secure eternal salvation.

Paradise will be so amazing, far behind our comprehension.Paradise will truly be amazing, far behind our earthly limited comprehension. Those who go to Paradise will have "life everlasting," "an eternal weight of glory" (Injil, Book of 2 Corinthians 4:17), will never suffer again or face any evil (Injil, Book of 2 Corinthians 5:1-2; Injil, Book of 2 Timothy 4:18), never-ending bliss and the "fulness of joy" forever (Injil, Books of Luke 20:36; 2 Corinthians 4:16,18; 1 Peter 1:4; 5:10; 1 John 3:2). God has prepared this very place for us, his beloved (Injil, Book of John 14:2), but we can only enter it through faith in Isa al Masih. Dear friends, do you know without a doubt that you will be there, for eternity with God our Creator?
