Here are some of the threads I have found
Paul states in Galatians 1:17 after his so called vision "nor did i go up to jerusalam to see those who were apostles before I but went immediately into ARABIA and later to damascus" Why did Paul "GO INTO ARABIA?? Well we know that the time following jesus his followers were being hunted down by both the jews and the romans. So where did they go? Who gave them shelter and protection?? ISLAM DID. YOU TOOK ME IN O' ISLAM!!!
Thats why Paul went into ARABIA. To learn to "BE A CHRISTAIN" from those who did not know him "He stayed with them for three years". So he could do what he did so well.
Clement wrote of Peter that he would Purify himself thoughout the day first before sunrise before the sunrise prayer. Before the morning prayer, Before the noon prayer, Before the afternoon prayer and Before the evening prayer. He also purified himself before and after he ate. And after he went to stool. And the fast was central to purifying the soul. SOUNDS LIKE THE SAME DEVOTION OF ALLAH AS ISLAM TEACHES. PURIFICATION AND THE FIVE DAILY PRAYERS.
The modesty of dress in both men and woman.
The covering of women in the way they should dress dates to this time also. Women were holy to them and are not ment for the eyes of stangers but to Allah and her spouse alone. Women also held the same right to Allah as they do in Islam . Woman were equal in spirit to men for we came from ONE SOUL...
THE FIVE PILLARS OF ISLAM reflects this message it seems.
I can't say enough how Totaly Islam Embodies these teachings.From self-understading to the love and salvation of your fellow human beings. I keep finding everyday Islam has always held on to what is true,just and right. Not as things to do just once or twice a week to make yourself feel good.
But as a way of eveyday life .
Everyday the Quran makes more sense in that the more i read and with the help true brother and sisters so willing share the deeper the meassge. Not just the message of jesus(uhp).But a more complete message of Allah though all his profets(pbut).
It's about time we start relizing our COMMON THREADS.
The MESSAGE is for all. The Quran testifies to the COMMONALITY we all share. The Quran must foremost be used, as the last testement to humanitiy above all to FIND THE COMMON THREADS that lifts humanity out of the pit. And NOT TO FIND INDIFFERENCE!! INDIFFERENCE BE-LITTLES ALLAH, HIS MESSAGE AND HIS PROFET MUHAMMAD(pbuh) AND IS MOST PLEASING TO SATAN!! DIVIDED SATAN THRIVES. UNITED HE IS REDUCED TO THE MEANINGLESS THINGS.
P.S This is a quote of our beloved prophet jesus(uhp). From the book the roman church wished distroyed called "The Gospel of Thomas" Minuteman shared this same message this same teaching with me. From the wisdom and truth of the Quran and further atests to its vailidity. More Common threads!!!
SAYING # 2 "THE SEEKER SOULD NOT STOP UNTIL HE FINDS. WHEN HE DOES FIND, HE WILL BE DISTURBED. AFTER HAVING BEEN DISTURBED, HE WILL BE ASTONISHED. THEN HE WILL REIGN OVER EVERYTHING."
ISLAMIC CHRISTAINS INTERESTING.
