The Etiquettes Of Comparison Religion

Well... Actually I don't really understand this picture


{The Etiquettes Of Comparison Religion}

Comparison Religions often become popular issue among Muslim and Non-Muslim. There are a lot of similarities in teachings and prayers. One of the common criticize against Islam :"Jews and Christian who invented the religions, Islam is just extracted from them and being modified into a better system."

However, Islam do have one small difference that being so different with the whole world's religions. This small difference tells how unique and exclusive Islam is. The important keypoint that behold by Islam alone.


Allah, the Exalted says:
[He is] Creator of the heavens and the earth. He has made for you from yourselves, mates, and among the cattle, mates; He multiplies you thereby. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
(Surat Ash-Shūraá (The Consultation) 42:11)

Keypoint :
God in Islam is nothing alike any creatures on earth, so Islam doesn't worship any IDOLS because nothing can be represent Him. From this theology, Muslim reject those religion followers who try to claims God is idols, God is son, God is everywhere, God is a girl (?)

As in Islam belief, God is never existed in human form or any of his creations, since He is the Creator who upon His creatures. So this is the FIRST difference that no other religions behold in comparative.

Allah, the Exalted says:
"Indeed, Allah does not forgive ASSOCIATION with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin."
(al-Quran : Surat An-Nisā' (The Women) 4:48)

Keypoint:
The unforgiven sin in Islam : Association with God.
Which mean if there are anyone who dare to put association with God, which is "representative of God", or any form of creatures that being associated is an UNFORGIVEN SIN. So this is the second keypoint that behold by Islam, try to seek for the same thing in comparison religions please? The answer is no, only Islam have this UNFORGIVEN SIN.

FUN FACT : Prophet Jesus A.S. also voice out regarding this comparative religions issue. As stated in :

"And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah ?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen."

"I said not to them except what You commanded me - to worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness."
(al-Quran - Surat Al-Mā'idah (The Table Spread) 5:116-117)

So that's the right Etiquettes Of Comparison Religion, don't simply find the similarities among religions. Just one small difference make Islam definitely NOT THE SAME with others. Which is worship Allah SWT alone, who explained by Him in al-Quran Surat Al-'Ikhlāş (The Sincerity) Chapter 112:



Say, "He is Allah , [who is] One, Allah , the Eternal Refuge.
He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent."
