|As Salam ali kum,|
To introduce myself, My name is Sayeed Khan and I'm 26 years old living in USA. I was born and brought up in India, but moved to USA since I was 16. Being living in this culture for so long, Alham dullilah, I keep myself away from all those things which have been declared as haram in our religion.
But, I'm in love with a girl, who is a jeho-witness. I love her very much and Inshallah i've plans to marry her. But, The question is, Can I marry a jeho-witnes in Islam?
Also, Its not that, I never tried to show her Islamic path. But anytime I try to approach her about our prohets and Islam, She raises the questions which I dont know anything about. (please see the below questions)with this regard, i'm here for help and hope some brother out there will help me in this.
1.) HOW CAN MUSLIMS BELIEVE THAT JESUS WAS THE
MESSENGER, BUT THEN STILL GO BY THE OLD MOSAIC LAWS
THAT THE JEWS GO BY WHEN THE JEWS DONT BELIEVE IN
JESUS AS THE MESSENGER?
2.) THE MOSAIC LAW WAS THE LAWS OF THE LAND SET FORTH
BY MOSES FOR THE PEOPLE OF CANAAN WAY BEFORE JESUS
EVER CAME TO THE EARTH, JESUS IS THE ONE WHO BROUGHT
ABOUT THE "NEW LAW" AND THAT WAS THE LAW OF LOVE.
BEFORE JESUS CAME PEOPLE HAD NO HOPE OF EVERLASTING
LIFE THEY JUST KNEW THAT IF THEY DID NOT FOLLOW THE
MOSAIC LAW, THAT THEY WOULD DIE, BUT WHEN JESUS CAME
HE INTRODUCED THE LAW OF LOVE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WERE
NOT LOVING EACH OTHER THEY WERE JUST OUT FOR
THEMSELVES, SO WHEN HE INTRODUCED THE LAW OF LOVE THE
MOSAIC LAW WAS TO BE NO MORE.
3.) IF YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSENGER THEN
YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE FOLLOWING THE MOSAIC LAW
BECAUSE UNDER THE MOSAIC LAW THERE IS NOT HOPE OF
EVERLASTING LIFE ON A PARADISE EARTH, AND THATB WOULD
ALSO MEAN THAT THERE WAS NO PURPOSE FOR JESUS TO EVEN
COME DOWN TO THE EARTH. WHICH MEANS YOU ARE SLAPPING
THE MESSENGER IN THE FACE AND NOT HEADING HIS WARNING
ABOUT ABOLISHING THE MOSAIC LAW.
4.) THE MOSAIC LAW SERVED A PURPOSE FOR A CERTAIN TIME
PERIOD BUT OVER THE YEARS PEOPLE ABUSED THESE LAWS AND
TOOK THEM TO THE EXTREME, NOBODY HAD ANY LOVE ALL THEY
FOCUSED ON WAS WHETHER OR NOT THEIR NEIGHBOR WAS
FOLLOWING THE MOSAIC LAW, AND IF THEY WERENT THEY
COULD BE STONED OR THROWN IN JAIL, SO THATS WHY JESUS
STOPED THAT AND INTRODUCED THE LAW OF LOVE.
5.)ALSO YOU KEEP REFFERING TO MOSES AS A MUSLIM BUT
MOSES WAS THE SON OF A HEBREW SLAVE, AND HIS MOTHER
HAD SENT HIM DOWN THE RIVER IN A BASKET BECAUSE THE
PHAROAH AT THAT TIME WAS KILLING ALL HEBREW BOYS. SO
AN EGYPTIAN WOMAN WHO WAS THE DAUGHTER OF THIS
PHAROAH, BUT THESE PEOPLE WERE NOT MUSLIMS THEY WERE
IDOL WORHSHIPPING EGYPTIANS WHO WORSHIPPED THE SUN GOD
"RA" AND ALSO THE PHAROAH HIMSELF BELIEVED THAT HE WAS
6.) ALSO THE ARAB RACE SHOULD HAVE NEVER EXISTED IT
WAS PURELY BY MISTAKE BECAUSE ABRAHAMS WIFE SARAH HAD
WANTED A CHILD FOR YEARS AND YEARS BUT SHE WAS BARON
AND COULD NOT BECOME PREGNANT, SO GOD CAME TO ABRAHAM
AND TOLD HIM SARAH WOULD HAVE A SON, BUT SARAH LAUGHED
CAUSE SHE WAS OLD AND SHE DID NOT BELIEVE IT. SO SHE
GAVE HER HAND MAIDEN TO ABRAHAM CAUSE SHE THOUGHT
THATS WHAT GOD MEANT TO ABRAHAM AND A WOMAN NAMED
"HAGAR" HAD A SON TOGETHER, BUT SHORTLY AFTER THAT
SARAH HAD MERACULOUSLY GOTTEN PREGNANT, AND SHE HAD
REALISED THAT SHE HAD DONE WRONG BY NOT HAVING FAITH
IN GOD. SO HAGARS SON "ISHMAEL" AND SARAHS SON "ISAAC"
WERE HALF BROTHERS "THE JEW AND THE ARAB" ISMAEL WAS
THE BEGINING OF THE ARAB RACE WHICH SHOULD HAVE NEVER
CAME ABOUT. ISAAC IS THE SON GOD INTENDED ARBRAHAM TO
THE REASON ARABS AND JEWS FIGHT TO THIS VERY DAY IS
BECAUSE ISHMAEL WAS VERY JEALOUS OF ISAAC AND SARAH
THOUGHT IT WAS BEST TO SEND HAGAR AND HER SON ISHMAEL
AWAY. AND THAT SEPARATED THE JEWS AND THE ARABS
THE MOSAIC LAW WAS DESIGNED TO BE A HARD LINE WAY OF
LIFE TO MAKE PEOPLE SEE THE NEED FOR A "DELIVERER" OR
A "RANSOMER" FOR THEIR SINS. BUT THE PEOPLE WERE NOT
SEEING THE NEED FOR ONE. THEY WERE ALL CAUGHT UP IN
THEIR OWN SELFISH ENDS. SO WHEN JESUS "THE RANSOM
SACRIFICE" CAME THEY DIDNT LIKE HIM TELLING THEM THAT
WHAT THEY WERE DOING WAS WRONG, ALSO THEY WERE
TEACHING COMMANDS OF MEN AS DOCTRINES RATHER THEN
TEACHINGS OF GOD. THEY ONLY TAUGHT THE PEOPLE WHAT
THEY WANTED THEM TO BELIEVE NOT WHAT GOD WANTED THEM
TO BE TAUGHT, SO THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS GOD SCARED, SO
THEY PLOTTED TO PUT JESUS TO DEATH BECAUSE BY JESUS
TELLING THE PEOPLE THAT THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS WERE
HYPOCRITS AND VIPERS AND THAT THEIR FATHER WAS SATAN.
SO THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS WERE ANGRY SO THEY WANTED TO
PUT HIMTO DEATH SO THEY WOULD NOT LOSE THEIR POWER AND
CONTROL OVER THE PEOPLE.
SO AYUB HOW CAN YOU STILL GO BY THE MOSAIC LAW WHEN IT
WAS SO BADLY USED BY THE JEWISH RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF
THAT DAY. AND JESUS CAME TO THE EARTH TO PUT A STOP TO
THIS LAW BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WERE NOT WORSHIPPING GOD
BY THESE LAWS THEY WERE ONLY WORSHIPPING MEN BECAUSE
PEOPLE FAIL TO REALISE THAT GOD IS LOVE. AND GOD
WANTED PEOPLE TO REALISE THAT THEY STILL NEEDED GO TO
SURVIVE RATHER THEN JUST MEN. SO JESUS WAS OUT TO
DEATH AS A RANSOM SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS. AND THE LAW
OF LOVE TOOK OVER. BUT WITHIN 3 DAYS JESUS'S BODY HAD
DISSAPEARED AND HE WAS RESSURECTED, THATS WHEN JESUS
CAME SECRETLY TO HIS DISCIPLES TO LET THEM KNOW THAT
HE HAD INDEED BEEN REASSURECTED BECAUSE HE WANTED
PEOPLE TO HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND HIS POWERS AND TO
PROVE TO EVERYONE THAT THEY NEED GOD
Thanks in advance and please help me out here.
Please, If there is some documention listed on this site, which talks more in depth of the religion, Please point me to that also.
