An Open Speech from Dr. Ali al-Sallabi to President "Trump"
On the occasion of American president Trump's stand in front of St. John's Church beside the White House and his raising the holy "Bible", that has particular connotations, I forward this speech.
I invite Mr. Trump to the humanitarian and cultural openness in order to listen to what the Holy Qur'an says about the truth of (Isa "Jesus" peace be upon him).
Allah supplied the Islamic world with huge resources and riches like gas and oil, that you knew how to deal with by the help of the governors, kings and princes of this world. But most importantly, our Islamic world has got a great religious, humanitarian, cultural and historical heritage, and it seems that many governors of the Islamic world didn't put among their priorities to acknowledge you about this heritage when they met your grace, especially dictators, tyrants and counter revolution chiefs in our countries.
And we ,as Muslims, have an inevitable belief that is not a jot doubted in The Messiah Jesus peace be upon him, his message, prophecy, preach and his Holy Bible that was inspired to him by the Lord of Worlds, in which Allah told about the certainty of prophet Muhammad peace be upon him who comes after. Allah Almighty, in the Holy Qur'an inspired to Muhammad peace be upon him, maintained the history of Isa Son of Maryam, his story, preach and destinations.
I, as a human and a researcher interested in Jesus peace be upon him and his mother, pure virgin virtuous Maryam,
Present to you along with the American nation the Quranic truth of Isa peace be upon him.
We, as Muslims, have the complete truth, that we are pleased to offer it all humans, your nation and your grace through our Holy Qur'an, in which Allah mentioned the story of Jesus and his divine message detailed.
Surely, Holy Qur'an has its decent scientific status among the fair, culturally opened, mind respecting and logic appreciating Christians. Since they found the truth Jesus peace be upon him in Holy Qur'an away from contradictions, faults, exchanges, additions and deletions, and they admitted its qualified resource, accurate telling and unrivalled sequence.
The scientific truth admits: that there is no book in the whole world that gives Messiah peace be upon him nor his mother or their gracious family a glorification and reverence greater than what Holy Qur'an gives.
Surely and undoubtedly, the glorification in Holy Qur'an of Messiah, his mother and his family exceeds that in Torah and Bible available nowadays. Besides, Holy Qur'an was the corrector of mistakes, and worthless charges and fabrications that was affixed to Messiah and his pure mother by some people's scandals.
Since, in Holy Qur'an there is Surat Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) which is named after the Messiah mother's family. The morpheme (Al) in our language functions in defining the good gracious families. This Surat is the second longest one in the Holy Qur'an, in which Allah Almighty states that he choosed Maryam peace be upon her and preferred her above all the women of creation.
Furthermore, there is Surat Maryam in Holy Qur'an, named after the mother of Messiah Maryam peace be upon them all.
Surely, the discourse of Holy Qur'an about Jesus peace be upon him indicates a historical miracle, that assures the truth that Qur'an can never be manmade, while indeed it's the speech of the Creator, the most Wise, Knowledgeable and Great, Allah Almighty. Holy Qur'an states many facts not found in Old neither New Testament books, such as the Messiah's speech to his mother when he was still in the cradle and his then announcement with the complete servathood to Allah Almighty and admitting His holiness as a great Creator free from defects and faults that can't be appropriate to His majesty.
Mr. President ...
Surely, the speech of Holy Qur'an about Jesus peace be upon him and his Holy Bible chimes with the American and European mind, the humanitarian mind open to truth of things, proofs of sciences and arguments of history, because it's a logical, rational and sentimental speech coming from Lord of all Worlds, and satisfying the longings of the soul that is seeking eagerly to be acknowledged about the truth of Messiah peace be upon him and his Holy Bible.
We, so faithfully and inevitably, admit that the speech of Holy Qur'an is the closest to the humanitarian liberal America and European mind, with its conscience thirsty for the truths, and its logic that went lost in the world of material and desires, and became fully absent in the term of moral and spiritual values.
I am inviting you with the American nation to reading this book: "The Messiah Isa Son of Maryam the Complete Truth" that has been translated into several international languages, firstly English. Its author relied on the verses and interpretations of Holy Qur'an to acknowledge readers about the story of Jesus peace be upon him. And I'm attaching an electronic English copy as a gift for ever searching for the truth of Jesus peace be upon him and his Holy Bible.
Surely, Jesus peace be upon him had abided by the high humanitarian values, and great principles like freedom, justice, forgiveness and human rights. And knowing the truth of Messiah as Allah Almighty projected in His dearest book "Holy Qur'an" is the approach and goal of the good devoted humans, who are true to their selves in this life.
Finally; I conclude this letter with the great questioning in the hereafter, mentioned by Allah Almighty in Holy Qur'an:
"And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah ? he saith: Be glorified! It was not mine to utter that to which I had no right. If I used to say it, then Thou knewest it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy Mind. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower of Things Hidden ?
I spake unto them only that which Thou commandedst me, (saying): Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. I was a witness of them while I dwelt among them, and when Thou tookest me Thou wast the Watcher over them. Thou art Witness over all things.
If Thou punish them, lo! they are Thy slaves, and if Thou forgive them (lo! they are Thy slaves). Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Mighty, the Wise.
Allah saith: This is a day in which their truthfulness profiteth the truthful, for theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they are secure for ever, Allah taking pleasure in them and they in Him. That is the great triumph.
Unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is therein, and He is Able to do all things.
