Introduction to the First Edition (1977) - by Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir as-Sufi al-Murabit

To the Muslims, Christianity is a historical reality based on a metaphysical fiction. Because its foundations are mythical and invented, as opposed to existential and revealed, it appears to us as a locked system of negation. Declaring a doctrine of love, it establishes inquisition. Preaching pacifism, it enacts the crusades. Calling to poverty, it constructs the vast edifice of wealth called the Church. Declaring 'mysteries', it involves itself in politics. Reformation, far from resolving the contradictions, revealed them further. Declaring the priesthood of all believers, they established a priesthood, but with a shift of focus by which the inherent insanity in the Christian fiction began to emerge. The qualifications for priesthood in the reformed churches were purely 'academic', while before a man could win a place in the hierarchy through piety and withdrawal from the world. This was the beginning of the concept of the secular -now there was a zone of 'religion' and a zone of politics, Church and state are held to be separate. What we discover is that in fact they have been one, as our author reveals in this fascinating study, from the beginning of the Church's bloody history.
Today Christianity as a body of metaphysics is frankly non-existent. No one is more aware of this than the Vatican. Their desperate attempts to co-opt every and any intellectual movement into the Christian thesis have gone beyond the bounds of satire. The most significant sign of their intellectual fraudulence has been the almost complete defection of the Christian intelligentsia into the Marxist and post-Marxist socialist camp. To unbelievers and to people of other religions, it always appeared baffling how the Christians could accommodate themselves to every power-nexus that appeared, right or left wing. From this work, it is clear that there is no longer any such thing as the Christian religion. Christianity is over. The myth has finally exploded.
Why this work is so welcome is that, first of an it looks at the roots of the Christian phenomenon from the only point of view from which it can be properly understood - I mean, the Muslim point of view. It is the sole vantage point from which it can be surveyed, because Islam is the inheritor of Jesus. Jesus, peace be upon him, was the Prophet who opened the way to the Seal of the Prophets and the completion of the prophetic cycle.It is sometimes difficult for the Christians to grasp that, while they look on the Jews with amazement at their inability to 'recognise' Jesus as a prophetic manifestation, they themselves are in the same fanatical position of being unable ta recognise the sameness of the sublime Prophet and Messenger Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. Moses, Jesus, Muhammad -they are one line, peace be upon all of them -their teaching is Islam. Their teaching is submission to the Divine Creator, worship of the one Lord, and obedience to His Law, or Shari'a. Moses, peace be upon him, altered the earlier law to fit the period he lived in, under Divine guidance. Jesus confirmed the Musan Law and may have modified it. The Messenger Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, confirmed the prophets and presented the final version of the Divine Law to fit the last age of man, which would see the tribe of Adam basically living as one people. It was for this reason that Allah in His Mercy simplified and made easier the Musan Law.
Christians have never been permitted to review or discover the prophetic teachings of Islam, because the educational base from which they receive their limited world view does not permit access to the Deen of Islam.It is only very recently that the great book of Imam Malik, containing the Hadith or teaching-sayings of the Messenger, blessings of Allah and peace be upon him, has been translated into a European language, that is, after thirteen hundred years.
