Equal in Heaven ?

Dear brothers and sisters ,

Many will tell you the major difference between Islam and Christianity is the status of Jesus or the perception of the crucifixion .

Here we will clarify the primary major difference between Islam and Christianity , which is "Accountability" .

The word "Accountability" refers to our time being punished or rewarded in the Afterlife for our behavior here on Earth .

The greater our Faith and actions on Earth , the greater the reward in the Afterlife and the less of a punishment . Similarly , the more the evil we commit in this life , we incur a greater punishment and are rewarded less .

This system is Fair and Logical in that it gives people what they deserve . The good for the good and the bad for the bad .

In order for this system to be conducted , we have several levels of Heaven , where the greatest among us are on the highest level of Heaven , and the less righteous are placed in lower levels of Heaven .

Also there are different time periods of Hell , similar to jail terms , the greater the crime , the longer you stay in Hell for the sins .

This system is the system that is described in Islam and demonstrates that we have a fair God who rewards us for what we have done .

Now we see a major difference arises when comparing the Christian's thoughts of the Afterlife . The Christian's view is without accountability . They assume that there is only one level of Heaven and that Hell is eternal with no escape .

The Christians say if anyone (big sinner or small sinner) believe in the blood of Jesus , they will go to Heaven . Hitler believed in and often quoted Jesus in his book "Mein Kepf" . This creates the unimaginable picture of the most evil along with the most righteous , side by side together , equal in Heaven according to the Christians .

Surely God is a just God who does not allow Hitler along side Moses in Heaven , even though Hitler was a faithful Christian .

Although this is the Christian's way of picturing the Afterlife , a closer look into the Bible shows that indeed Christians too are accountable similar to the system of Islam , only that one needs the Quran and Hadeeth to more deeply understand the concepts recorded in the Bible .

For example , the Quran and Hadeeth clarify there are seven levels of Heaven {Quran 41:12 and 2:29} , the Hadeeth also explain that people are placed in Hell temporarily for a set time , depending on their sins , and are then removed from Hell for simply having a atom's weight of Faith in God {Volume 9, Book 93, Number 532s, Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri}

With these details explained in the Islamic Scripture , we then can fully understand the words Jesus preached in the Gospel and the phrases in the Old Testaments .

For example , Jesus also briefly mentions there are different levels of the Kingdom of Heaven ;

"Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."Matthew 5:19

Furthermore , Jesus and the Old Testament confirm that we can be removed from Hell :

" But I say to you that every one who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be liable to the hell of fire . "Matthew 5:22

This shows we will owe Hell , directly suggesting a temporary time in Hell for the sin of saying "fool"

It is very clear in the Old Testament that Hell is not eternal for those who believe in God , nor is Hell only one level :

"For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell.." De 32:22

"For great [is] thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell."Ps 86:13

Here we see a example of God's mercy and capability to remove us from Hell , showing Hell is not eternal for those who believe in God, this illustrates that we may spend some time in Hell , but it may not be Eternal (depending on the crime) , this is also viewed from the following quotes in the Old Testament ;

"For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption."Ps 16:10

"Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell"Pr 23:14

Unless Christians expand their knowledge to the Final Testament {The Holy Quran} , the Christians will remain propagating that God is Unjust in the Afterlife . God gave us minds to seek knowledge .

Jesus could not tell us the entire picture of the Afterlife as quoted here:

"I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now."Joh 16:12

This verse is further understood in light of the history of the church persecuting scientists who spoke about wonders of our Universe.

Than in Islam , the Message has been completed so we can understand the aspects of the Afterlife that have been overlooked by the modern Christians .

"...This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion" {Translation of the Holy Quran 5:3}
