HOUSTON – “The rise of these Islamic terrorist organizations have provoked me to embark on writing this book,” says author Imad Barake in reference to his new book, “One Religion, One Faith in Christ's Crucifixion and the Prophecy of Mohammed” (published by Xlibris), explains in essence that God revealed only one religion to entire humanity through his chosen messengers stressing on three basic pillars, Monotheism, The Day of Resurrection (The Last Day) and the Righteous Deed. His first Messenger was Noah and his last was Mohammed, all broadcasting the three pillars of the religion. But as humans evolved and developed over thousands of years, their messages carried specific codes and guidance to suit each era until Jesus Christ, who God sent as a special messenger that had unique power and authority that no other messenger possessed.
Barake argues that Jesus was crucified in accordance of the right reading and interpretation of Quran, which is contrary to what Muslims have believed in over the last 1400 years
Barake asserts that the current teachings of Islam, the image and biography of Mohammed as presented by the Hadith (The Sunnah) and the interpretations of Quran, as have been unanimously adopted and broadcasted through Muslim cleric, libraries, TV shows, etc., are mostly outdated, completely misunderstood, wrongly applied, caused the distortion of Mohammed and inevitably become the main source and platform to justify barbaric actions and terrorism acts by the so called Muslim Terrorist Organizations and Extremists, the likes of ISIS(The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria).
In the final part of the book, Barake demonstrates that the Bible and Quran or Christianity and Islam share much common ground, both call for same common values and teachings, and where they truly differ are either insignificant or irrelevant, as the purpose of living this life is for people to exercise their freedom in making choices and decisions without coercion. “I am hopeful that my book will present new doctrine,” says Barake, “show that God sent only one religion to human kind but through different messages each prophet carrying specific sets of guidance and codes.”
