    The Gospel of Barnabas: A Witness and a Victim

    Message  Admin le Mer Juil 21, 2010 3:37 pm

    Thanks are due to Allah (the Almighty) for the bliss of Islam, the greatest bliss one can ever have.
    We
    really feel proud that we are Muslims and followers of Prophet Muhammad
    (Peace be upon him) the most honorable human being that has ever been
    created and members of the most charitable nation brought out to
    mankind. All the prophets and messengers brought glad tiding of this
    nation and this Prophet (Peace be upon him) and ordered their people to
    follow and support that Prophet if they live at his time. Therefore, it
    is not strange to find among the texts of the Bible references to that
    issue despite all efforts of distortion. Gold glitters despite all the
    dust that may fall on it and Allah (the Almighty ) reveals the right in
    order to be a proof.


    Who was Barnabas?
    Barnabas
    was one of the Disciples of prophet Isa (Jesus) (Peace be upon him) and
    the writer of the Gospel that includes the right narration of many
    events at that time. However, in 492 AD, Pope Gelasius prohibited its
    circulation because it opposed the concept of Divinity bestowed on
    prophet Isa (Peace be upon him). Latin monk Fra Marino got the Gospel
    of from the private library of his friend, Pope Sixtus (1585-90)
    Barnabas from the Papal Library, read it and then embraced Islam as Dr.
    Khalil Sa'dah, the Christian scholar, mentioned in the preface to his
    translation of this Gospel.

    The
    description of Barnabas in the Gospels reveals an honest and truthful
    man and one of the most devout disciples as mentioned in the Acts of
    Apostles:

    "Then
    tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in
    Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as
    Antioch. 011:023 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was
    glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would
    cleave unto the Lord. For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost
    and offaith: and much people was added unto the Lord." (22-24)

    The
    question is: why many people joined him and advocated his call? This is
    because his faith was that of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the
    faith that is clear and straightforward, the faith that does not
    include the unsolvable and unfathomable mysteries of trinity and the
    like Christian concepts that need years to be understood, if so at
    all.


    The Gospel of Barnabas
    The following are some quotations from this persecuted Gospel.
    The verses 1-15 of the ninety-six chapter of the Gospel of Barnabas read as follows:
    "When
    the prayer was ended, the priest said with a loud voice: "Stay, Jesus,
    for we need to know who you are, for the quieting of our nation." Jesus
    answered: "I am Jesus, son of Mary, of the seed of David, a man that is
    mortal and fears God, and I seek that to God be given honour and glory."

    The priest answered: "In
    the Book of Moses it is written that our God must send us the Messiah,
    who shall come to announce to us that which God wills, and shall bring
    to the world the mercy of God. Therefore I pray you tell us the truth,
    are you the Messiah of God whom we expect?"

    Jesus answered: "It
    is true that God has so promised, but indeed I am not he, for he is
    made before me, and shall come after me." The priest answered: "By your
    words and signs at any rate we believe you to be a prophet and an holy
    one of God, wherefore I pray you in the name of all Judea and Israel
    that you for love of God should tell us in what wise the Messiah will
    come."

    As
    for the glad tiding of the coming the final prophet, Prophet Muhammad
    (Peace be upon him) is mentioned in name and in description. In the
    ninety-seven chapter we the verses 4-10 read as follows:

    "Then
    Jesus said: "With your words I am not consoled, because where you hope
    for light darkness shall come; but my consolation is in the coming of
    the Messenger, who shall destroy every false opinion of me, and his
    faith shall spread and shall take hold of the whole world, for so has
    God promised to Abraham our father. And that which gives me consolation
    is that his faith shall have no end, but shall be kept inviolate by
    God."

    The
    priest answered: "After the coming of the Messenger of God shall other
    prophets come?" Jesus answered: "There shall not come after him true
    prophets sent by God, but there shall come a great number of false
    prophets, whereat I sorrow. For Satan shall raise them up by the just
    judgment of God, and they shall hide themselves under the pretext of my
    gospel." Herod answered: "How is it a just judgment of God that such
    impious men should come?""

    Moreover, the name of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is mentioned in the verses 13-18 of the abovementioned chapter:
    "Then
    said the priest: "How shall the Messiah be called, and what sign shall
    reveal his coming?" Jesus answered: "The name of the Messiah is
    admirable, for God himself gave him the name when he had created his
    soul, and placed it in a celestial splendour. God said: "Wait Muhammad;
    for your sake I will to create paradise, the world, and a great
    multitude of creatures, whereof I make you a present, insomuch that
    whoever shall bless you shall be blessed, and whoever shall curse you
    shall be accursed. When I shall send you into the world I shall send
    you as my Messenger of salvation, and your word shall be true, insomuch
    that heaven and earth shall fail, but your faith shall never fail."
    Muhammad is his blessed name." Then the crowd lifted up their voices,
    saying: "O God send us your Messenger: O Muhammad, come quickly for the
    salvation of the world!""

    At the end the only thing that we can say is what Allah (the Almighty) says in the Noble Qur'an and can be translated as:
    "Say,
    “O population of the Book, (Or: Family of the Book, i.e., the Jews and
    Christians) come to a level word between us and you, that we worship
    none except Allah, and that we do not associate anything with Him, and
    that some of us do not take to themselves others (Literally: some
    “others”) as lords, apart from Allah.” So, in case they turn away, then
    say, “Bear witness that we are Muslims.” (Literally: we have
    surrendered “to Allah”)."
    (3:64)
