LET’S GET SERIOUS ABOUT GOING TO HEAVEN ! Just ponder for a moment. Would it not be injustice on God’s part to let an innocent one suffer for the wicked deeds of millions of sinners? A king lets his beloved son, the innocent prince, die a gruesome death just so that he can gain an excuse to allow the wicked criminals in his castle dungeons to go free. Sounds crazy doesn’t it? Secondly, if according to the Christian Doctrine of Atonement, only those who accept Jesus (pbuh) as their saviour will go to heaven, then what about the billions of Believers who lived before the time of Jesus Christ? What about great prophets of God like Abraham (pbuh), Moses (pbuh), Joseph (pbuh), Noah (pbuh) etc. who never even knew Jesus (pbuh)? Furthermore, all the Prophets believed salvation to be found in only 2 things:

(1) Faith in God’s Oneness and

(2) Submission to His commandments – precisely what Islam teaches! Thirdly, this belief in Atonement is often the cause of much moral decline in society. One who believes that he/she is living on grace, would not fear God, and would therefore commit more evil deeds than one who believes that disobeying God’s Law can lead to punishment in this world and in the next life. Fourthly, one who believes that there is no salvation except through Atonement is really insulting God’s beautiful qualities of Mercy and Forgiveness. One then implies that God was lacking in Mercy (God forbid!) hence He was unable to forgive a sinner who asked for forgiveness. In contrast, Islam teaches that even a Believer’s lifetime of disobedience is immediately forgiven when he/she sincerely repents. Satan will however, urge us to delay our repentance and procrastinate, until Death arrives – for then it is too late! LET’S GET SERIOUS ABOUT GOING TO HEAVEN ! Just ponder for a moment.
