A Hadith Comparison :


Volume 8, Book 76, Number 496:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "The truest poetic verse ever said by a poet, is: Indeed! Everything except Allah, is perishable."

And I compare these words from the inspired writer, recorded over half a millennium earlier, written in reference to Jesus, the Son:

10 And,
You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the works of Your hands;
11 They will perish, but You remain;
And they all will become old like a garment,
12 And like a mantle You will roll them up;
Like A garment they will also be changed.
But You are the same,
And Your years will not come to an end.
(Hebrews 1:10-12)

If only Allah is unperishable, and Jesus is not perishable, and is unchangeable, then it follows inevitably that the Christians have been right all along!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I'm not perishable any longer. :)

As long as you don't start calling me "Allah" we're probably ok. :)
