1-GOD <--> 1-Religion <--> 1-Holy Book

I am sure you must have heard it said that we were born in sin—and perhaps you even believe that. But let's think about that for a moment. Would the Just God blame you for a sin you never committed? Would He hold you responsible for what someone else did? Definitely not! God's book teaches that you are responsible for only your own actions. You cannot sin until you do something wrong. And you certainly could not have done wrong before you were even born.

Yet we often meet people who say that we are somehow born in sin. Could that possibly be true? They say that the first human being, Adam, sinned, and through him sin entered the world; and now sin corrupts everything, including every newborn baby. Can you follow that logic? Can you believe that human beings are condemned before they do anything? Which judge would condemn people for crimes they never committed? A just judge cannot do that except by mistake. But what about God? Would He make such a mistake? We cannot imagine such false ideas about God. He is Just. He holds you responsible for what you do, and He does not blame you I am sure you must have heard it said that we were born in sin—and perhaps you even believe that.

But even after you do wrong, God is always willing to forgive. He is full of loving kindness, and He loves to forgive. He is willing to forgive anyone who turns to Him and seeks forgiveness. This means that if you did something wrong you can still turn back to God and He will forgive you, if you sincerely decide to give up that sin. Isn't this refreshing to know? Isn't it wonderful to know that even if we lived a whole life of sin but we decide now to change our lives and obey God He would forgive us this minute? And that's just between us and God. We don't need any confession box, and we don't need anyone to suffer for our sins. Can we resist the loving kindness that God is offering us?

God wants us to know about His love. He wants us to know that He is Just. He wants us to know the truth about Him so that when we turn to Him we know to Whom we are turning. But there is so much misinformation about God. Where can we get correct information about Him? In His book! That's so obvious, isn't it? God told us about Himself in His book. We owe it to ourselves to see what God has to say about Himself. Shouldn't you be reading God's book? Here's God's message to you in His book:

The Qur'an is God's final book which He revealed for the guidance of all humankind.

O mankind! Now has a proof from your Lord come unto you, and We have sent down unto you a clear light; as for those who believe in Allah and hold fast unto Him, them will He cause to enter into His mercy and grace, and will guide them unto Him by a straight road. (Qur'an 4:174-5)

The Qur'an is God's final book which He revealed for the guidance of all humankind.


How Sins will be Destroyed according to the Quraan

by Irshad Mahmood - Global Auliyaa (PRESIDENT), Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

This Question arose from Christian’s thought. So first we need to understand the Bible definition of Sins and Destruction of Sins.

Jesus Destroyed Sins is Illogical

If I am not wrong, according to Christian’s Thought, Sins exists in the world. BUT if you believe in Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) same as do the Christians then your sin is destroyed, since the Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)  was Crucified to wash and destroy Christians sins according to the Christian Believe.


Jesus Christ was God in the flesh (John 1:1, 14).  When Jesus died on the cross, His death was an infinite death because He was God, and therefore infinite and eternal.  Jesus’ death was sufficient to pay for all the sins that have ever been committed (2 Corinthians 5:21).  All we must do is place our faith in Him and our sins will be forgiven (John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10). That is why Jesus had to die.  His death was the only way our sins could be forgiven. Ref: http://www.gotquestions.org/why-Jesus-die.html

Question:  "Do Christians have to keep asking for forgiveness for their sins?"

Answer:  Yes, we should confess our sins to God as soon as we are aware that we have sinned.  However, we do not always need to be asking God for forgiveness.  When a person places his faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, all of his sins are forgiven.  That includes past, present and future, big or small.  Believers do not have to keep asking for forgiveness or repenting in order to have their sins forgiven.  Jesus died to pay the penalty for all of our sins, and when they are forgiven, they are all forgiven (Colossians 1:14; Acts 10:43).  What we are to do is confess our sins: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

Yes, Christians do sin (1 John 1:8), but the Christian life is not to be identified by a life of sin.  Believers are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).  We have the Holy Spirit in us producing good fruit (Galatians 5:22-23).  A Christian life should be a changed life.  I would have serious doubts about a person who claims to be a believer yet lives a life that says otherwise. Christians are forgiven no matter how many times they sin, but at the same time Christians should live a progressively more holy life as they grow closer to Christ.

Ref: http://www.gotquestions.org/Christian-sin.html


Here the Question arises that if the sins are destroyed then why are there so many Christians go to the Jails. Even in Year 2004, in the news we came to know that Many (not one and two) Christian Priests were charged on Adultery cases. Also few years back, Mr. Bill Clinton (former President of the USA), during his presidency, was caught on Adultery Case regarding Monica. So it is very obvious that God did not destroy the Sins in this World.

Possible Answers from the Quraan

Yes, similar to the Christian believe, the Sins will be destroyed and there will be no sins in the Heaven, BUT Allah (God) does not need any special act to destroy Sins, like Crucifixion  of Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) to destroy the Sins etc. Several Times Origin of Sins starts from Thought, which is Invisible. It works so simple that when Allah says “Be! And it is”. In the Heaven there will be no Sins.

Al_Quraan_002:117

The Originator of the heavens and the earth! When He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

For further references, please see Al_Quraan_003:047, Al_Quraan_016:040, Al_Quraan_019:035, Al_Quraan_036:082, Al_Quraan_040:068

In the Heaven there will be no sins. Since Allah said that so we have to believe on that.

Al_Quraan_056.015-026

On thrones decorated, Reclining on them, facing one another. Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink; They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted, And fruits such as they choose, And the flesh of fowl such as they desire. And pure, beautiful ones, The like of the hidden pearls: A reward for what they used to do. They will NOT hear therein vain or sinful discourse, Except the word PEACE, PEACE.

Forgiveness:

And He it is Who accepts repentance from His servants and forgives sins and He knows what you do; (Al_Quraan_042.025)

If any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amend (his conduct), lo! He is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al_Quraan_006.054)

(Asked Allah to forgive you and never ever think to do the sin again, otherwise it will be like a joke with Allah)
