Eminent people on Islam- Sir Jadunath Sarkar (1870-1958)

   Sir Jadunath Sarkar (1870-1958) was a world-famous historian. In 1923, he became an honorary member of the Royal Asiatic Society of London. In August 1926, he was appointed as the Vice Chancellor of Calcutta University (in India, today Calcutta is called Kolkata). In 1928, he joined as Sir W. Meyer Lecturer in Madras University (in India, today Madras is called Chennai). Sarkar was honored by Britain with a Companion of the Order of the Indian Empire CIE and knighted in the 1929 Birthday Honours list. He was invested with his knighthood at Shimla by the acting Viceroy, Lord Goschen, on 22 August 1929. He wrote at least 16 books on history which are held in high esteem. His expertise was medieval Indian history, which contains the period of Islamic rule. His expertise on the Islamic period also made him realize the truth of Islam.

   This world-famous historian wrote :

   “(According to Islam) Polytheism is sin: “Therefore, the toleration of any sect outside the fold of orthodox Islam is no better than compounding with sin. And the worst form of sin is polytheism, the belief that the one true God has partners in the form of other deities. Such a belief is the rankest ingratitude (kafir) to him who gives as our life and daily bread.

   Meaning of Jihad is “to exert in the Path of God”: “Islamic theology, therefore, tells the true believer that his highest duty is to make exertion (jihad) in the path of God by waging war against infidel lands (dar-ul-harb) till they become a part of the realm of Islam (dar-ul-Islam). After conquest, the entire infidel population becomes theoretically reduced to the status of slaves of the conquering army (Muslims). The men taken with arms are to be slain or sold into slavery and their wives and children induced to servitude. As for the non-combatants among the vanquished, they are not massacred out right, as the Canon lawyer Shafi declared to the Quranic injunction, it is only to give them a respite till they are so wisely guided as to accept the true faith.” (The History of Aurangazeb, Vol. 3, pp. 163-164 by Sir Jadunath Sarkar, published by Orient Longman 1972)

   Murder of non-Muslims is a merit : “The murder of infidels (even if they are innocent) is counted a merit in a Muslim. It is not necessary that he (Muslim) should have his own passion or mortify his flesh, it is not necessary for him to grow a rich growth of spirituality. He has only to slay a certain class of his fellow-beings (non-Muslims) or plunder their lands and wealth and this act in itself would raise his (Muslim’s) soul to Heaven. A religion where followers are taught to regard robbery and murder as a religious duty, is incompatible with the progress of mankind or with the peace of the world.” (ibid., pp. 161-169)

   No peace between Mohammadan king and neighbouring of infidel states : “According to the Quranic law, there can not be peace between a Mohammedan king and his neighbouring infidel states. The latter are Dar-ul-Harb or legitimate stated for war, and it is the Muslim king’s duty to slay and plunder them (non-Muslims) till they accept the true faith (Islam) and become Dar-ul-Islam. (Land of Muslims alone), after which they will become entitled to his (Muslim king’s) protection.” (Shivaji and His times, pages 479-480, by Sir Jadunath Sarkar; published by Orient Longman.)

    God is not creator but Manager. He gave the existing things a system. As a Engineer made a system when we switch on fan, T.V. computer, etc. start. God is Engineer is not creator. He worked with the existing things. Same as God worked with existing primordial matter which is of three kind and arranged them in a system. Earth is rotating, sun is rotating, day and night happening. God is not creator but he managed them. A day will come when this system collapse. The day will be the end of universe. It will be night of God. Its period will be same as much age of this universe.

    Common sense tells us that if there is a God who created everything and is infinite in power and knowledge then definitely (when compared to His creation), there has to be a gulf in man’s comprehension of his Creator.
    The doctrine of the Trinity provides this mystery. No one can ever explain in its fullness this doctrine. It makes perfect sense and is at the same time incomprehensible in its fullness: how can three be one and yet one be three from everlasting to everlasting?
    The writers who penned this doctrine could not have been the originators of a theory so far beyond their simple understanding. This knowledge had to be ”downloaded” so to speak.
    Critics like to point out that: 1+1+1=3, to which we respond: 1 x 1 x 1 = 1…

    Jihadism is nothing but a hate ideology. All religions teach love, brotherhood and moving into higher consciousness, except Jihadism, which teaches killing Kafirs, raping their women and creating an Islamic Caliphate through blood, body parts & war against Kafirs. It is no surprise that many countries do not encourage Islam. The recent examples are Japan, China, Australia which do not provide citizenship to Jihadis, Spain where a court case is ongoing to ban Islam and Italy which does not recognize Islam as a peaceful religion and hence not eligible for government grant. As a result of Internet, the evil truth of Islam has been exposed this has resulted in millions of Muslims leaving Islam. 6 million people leave Islam every year and this number does not include reverts to original religion. For more information about the evil religion of Islam please visit the following websites 1) faithfreedom.org 2) alisina.org 3) thereligionofpeace.com 4) politicalislam.com 5) islam-watch.org 6) citizenwarrior.com 7) Google Islamic Info for masses. Dr. M.A. Khan, an Indian ex-Muslim has written a wonderful book giving historical evidence of how Islam spread by the power of sword, murder, rape, mutilation etc all over the world. The name of the book is Islamic Jihad: A legacy of forced conversion, imperialism and Slavery. Jihadism is a violent and murderous ideology which has no place in civilized world. If you want peace and love to prevail in the world please spread this message to as many people as possible.

    In the Christian book MAJOR BIBLE THEMES by Lewis Sperry Chafer on page 39 which informs the readers that “Many believe that the doctrine of the Trinity in implicit in the use of the word Elohim, as the name of God which is in a plural form and seems to refer to the Triune God. “ Likewise, in the Christian magazine PERHAPS TODAY November/December 2013 on page 8 it reads about Genesis 1:1. “In the beginning God [this is the plural noun Elohim, meaning ‘more than one’] created the heaven and the earth.” Furthermore, a bit of a view of the inner workings of the Trinity together may be seen in that the God the Father raised Jesus from the dead. Romans 10:9,10. Jesus raised Himself from the dead, John 2:19,20. The Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead, Romans 8:11.The inner-workings of the Trinity of God may also be seen in the fact that the Father sanctifies, First Thessalonians 5:23. The Son sanctifies, Ephesians 5:26. Hebrews 2:11; 9:12,14;13:12.The Holy Spirit sanctifies ,Romans 15:16. Second Thessalonians 2:13. Getting back to the Bible book of Genesis. In Genesis 1:26 in reads “The God said let US make man in Our image , according to our likeness…” The words are the plural “Us” and “Our.” As in “We the Trinity” For the very next verse, 27, it further reads “So God created man in His own image…” In verse 26 it’s the plural “Us” and “Our” to the singular “His” That is Three Persons in One God. In addition, in the New Testament in Matthew 28:19 It further reads the Jesus said “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the the Son and the Holy Spirit.” [N.K.J.V] That is “name” not “names.” In conclusion the many apologists and propagandists for Islam for Islam who make the claim that Christians and Muslims believe in and worship the same God are make an untrue and outright false claim. For the God of Christianity, Christians and the Bible is not the god of Islam Muslims and the Koran.

    The scholar as well as author, Nabeel Qureshi of the book entitled ANSWERING JIHAD who in the past was a Muslim but now a Christian had explained clearly that god of Islam is not the God of the Bible. For on page 113 in his book he informs the reader that “Islam roundly condemns worship of the Trinity [5:73], establishing in contrast its own core principle of Tawhid, the absolute oneness of God. Tawhid emphatically denies the Trinity; so much that it is safe to say the doctrine of God in Islam is antithetical to the doctrine of God in Christianity. Not just different but opposed.” Further on page 116 he elaborates that “Tawhid is antithetical to the Trinity, fundamentally incompatible and only similar superficially and semantically, Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God.” Therefore it’s fitting then to make a reiteration of the following essay on this very important subject.

    There are a number of apologists for Islam, some are imams and mullahs and strangely enough, even some so called “Christian” pastors, who have made the outstanding claim that Christians and Muslim both believe in and worship the same God. So it stands to reason that it’s important to know if this claims valid and true or invalid and false. The facts are that the god of Islam or the Muslims is a single being. In great contrast the God of Christianity, of the Christians consists as the Trinity. By the Trinity it means that “Within the essence of the one True God there are Three Persons. Being God the Father. God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Not three gods in one But Three Distinct Persons in One God. Being the Tri-Personal Nature of God, Matthew 3:13-17. Second Corinthians 13:14. . The Bible teaches, the Father is God, Galatians 1:1.The Son is God, First John 5:20. The Holy Spirit is God, Acts 5:3,4. Not three gods but the one and only Triune God.

    Concerning the very first point in what the Muslim scholar and historian, Sir Jadunath Sarkar, given in the above article that sited him as writing that “Polytheism is a sin.” He was right about that ,. polytheism is also pagan and false. Many Muslims denounce the Christian doctrine of the Divine Trinity of God as “polytheism.” When they do this they are showing they are actually showing their complete ignorance of the the Bible’s dogma of the Trinity. They For the doctrine Trinity would be polytheism if Christian believed in three gods, as many of the apologists for Islam claim Christians do. Such is not the case. To say the Christians believe in three gods is a called “scarecrow augment” as that presents a bogus presentation of what Christian believe. So the following message might be informative of this subject.
