Al-Kitab for Abraham's Children
(A Guide for the Straight Path)
How can Jews, Christians, and Muslims walk together on the same Straight Path that leads to the Gardens
of Paradise? What do they have in common?
Muslims, Jews, and Christians have a common "spiritual" father. They all came from Abraham. Arabs and Muslims are Abraham's
descendants through Ishmael. Jews and Christians are Abraham's descendants through Isaac. Lesson 1 pictures how Ishmael and Isaac as well as their respective descendants had beautiful contacts,
each helping the other. It is jut unfortunate that the professed descendants of Abraham continue on their sibling rivalry through wars and intrigues down the stream of time.
Allah has a message as contained in His Al Kitab (Divine Book) for the two lines of Abraham's descendants. There are Hanif believers in each line. Allah calls these believers to
come out of their Jewish, Christian, and Muslim respective religious nests and find a common ground. There is no other common ground but for them to go back to the religion of Abraham—the true
Islam. Allah calls them to form a common ummah (community) of Hanif believers. Their mission is to lead their fellow descendants in each line to the Straight Path, the path that Abraham had trod, which leads to the Garden of Paradise.
