    Dear Saints of God
    Praise be to the Lord Jesus!
    Following two articles named 1. Show us the straight path; and 2. Can Jesus
    bear our burdens? are the tracts for Muslims for their Salvation. The verses
    are taken from both the Qur'an and the Bible for these tracts. We use it
    because at any cost we want to win the Muslim world unto the Salvation of
    Jesus Christ.

    Apostle Paul said in 1corinthians 9:20-23 "And unto the Jews I became as a
    Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under
    the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are
    without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,)
    that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak,
    that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by
    all means save some. And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be
    partaker thereof with you."

    Kindly pray that we'd like to publish these leaflets in several languages to
    the Muslim world. By God's grace we can do it if anybody support us with
    needed fund. Our Lord Jesus said, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek,
    and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." (Mt 7:7). We are
    not ashamed of the gospel of Christ and also not feeling shame to knock and
    ask to the saints of God for prayers and helps in the name of Jesus our
    Saviour for glorifying His name through the evangelisation of the muslim
    world and the third world. Till now we could see any single support, yet we
    pray without ceasing. It is preliminary evangelisation. So we don't teach
    any denominational doctrines. Your small or big contributions are highly
    appreciated for this great task. Your prayers are most important than
    financial supports. (YOU MAY PASS IT ON).
    In the bond of Calvary's love

    Tract No.1.
    "SHOW US THE STRAIGHT PATH"

    "Ih'dina Sirathwal musthakim" is the fifth verse of the first Surah of the
    Qur'an and it means "Show us the straight path".

    There is a tradition saying that 'sirathwal musthakim' is a narrow bridge
    over hell to heaven which is made out of seven torn pieces of a hair. The
    righteous can pass over the bridge without any trials; but the wicked will
    go to hell.

    A worldly man cannot pass over the narrow bridge. Jesus says in the Book of
    Injil (Gospel), "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and
    broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But
    small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few
    find it" (Matthew 7:13-14).

    The Qur'an gives warning to mankind "Lo! they who deny our revelations and
    scorn them, for them the gates of Heaven will not be opened nor will they
    enter the garden until the camel goeth through the needle's eye" (Qur'an
    7:40).

    As in the Qur'an there is a Right Narrow Path to get into Heaven.

    The Qur'an 7:10-17 says: "God created Adam out of mud, fashioned him and
    told the angels to fall and prostrate before the man. Iblis (Lucifer) did
    not obey. God degraded him. Still he asked God for reprieve till the day
    when the human beings are raised from the dead. It was granted. Then Iblis
    said to God that he will lurk in ambush of man on God's Right Path. Again he
    said that he will go upon them from before them and from behind them and
    from their right hands and from their left hands for God would not find most
    of them beholden".

    Mankind does not see the Right Narrow Path, because it is hidden by Iblis.
    Also he tries to lead them into wrong, broad and worldly ways. But the
    children of Abraham and Ishmael knows the broad path is not the right one to
    heaven. So we pray to God to show us the Right Path.

    Jesus said: "Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will
    seek to enter and will not be able" (Luke 13:24). In the Scripture of the
    Holy Bible, same Jesus declared : "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no
    one comes to the Father, but by Me." (John 14:6).

    The Qur'an says in 19:21 about Jesus as a revelation for mankind and a mercy
    from God, and it is a thing ordained.

    Jesus destroyed the head of Iblis, and opened the narrow door of Heaven. He
    says: "In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have
    overcome the world." (John 16:33). Also He has given grace for those who are
    born of God so they can overcome the world.

    Yes! It is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. I John 5:4,5
    says, "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory
    that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the
    world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God." But still it is
    very sad to say that Gospel is veiled to those who are perishing. In their
    case, the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to
    keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is
    the likeness of God (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
    The Bible says in 1 Timothy 2:5 that "there is one God, and there is one
    mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."

    The Qur'an also says very clearly that Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious in
    the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near unto God(Qur'an
    3:45). So we may keep our duty to God and obey Jesus (Qur'an 3:50; 43:61).

    May God bless all of us to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven through the
    Right Narrow Path, which is Jesus, the Word of God (Kalimathullah ), the
    Spirit of God (Ruhullah) and the Messiah of God (Massihullah) who became a
    ransom for many.

    Tract No.2.
    CAN JESUS BEAR OUR BURDEN?
    Almighty God created man out of dust and gave him life through the Word to
    be the overseer of all creations. He had a definite plan to glorify His name
    through mankind. For that God wanted man to be surrendered unto Him.

    To obey each and every law of God is total surrendering. But Adam disobeyed,
    ate of the tree of which God commanded him not to eat. So he sinned.

    Suppose you appoint a new servant for your household. He is bonded to obey
    your rules. Do you ever like it if he doesn't obey your commands, moving in
    his own ways and making friendship with your enemies? You will fire him out
    immediately and will make sure that he does not get any support from your
    subordinates and friends.

    If God was like us, He would have removed man and would not have allowed the
    universe to continue forever more. But our merciful God did not destroy
    Adam. He just cast him from the paradise as a punishment for sin and granted
    permission to live on earth (that is also God's creation) and from the sweat
    of his face to eat. Also He promised the Messiah, Jesus, who is the Word
    from God, Son of (woman) Mary, illustrious in the world and hereafter as the
    deliverer from sin.

    The Qur'an says: "Lo! the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of
    Adam. He created him out of dust, then He said unto him: Be! and he is.
    (This is) the Truth from Thy Lord. (O Muhammad), so be not thou of those who
    waver" (Qur'an 3:59-60).

    How Jesus is likeness of Adam?

    Adam was created as a faultless man. The Prophet David says in the book of
    Zabur (Psalms): "What is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of
    man that thou dost care for him? Yet thou hast made him little less than
    God, and dost crown him with glory and honor. Thou hast given him dominion
    over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet, all
    sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and
    the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea" (Psalms
    8:4-8).

    God asked the angels to prostrate before Adam. All fell prostrate; but Iblis
    (Lucifer) demurred through pride, and so became Satan (Qur'an 2:34). Hence
    Satan made Adam disobedient; so he too became as a sinner. From him all the
    generations became under the sin.

    The Prophet David says in Zabur: "Behold I was brought forth in iniquity,
    and in sin did my mother conceive me" (Psalms 51:5).

    The Injil (The New Testament of the Bible) also says very clearly: "For
    there is no distinction; since all have sinned and fall short of the glory
    of God" (Romans 3:23). But the same word promised a remedy too: "They are
    justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ
    Jesus".

    The Qur'an says in several verses: "No burdened soul can bear another's
    burden" (35:18; 39:7; 53:38).

    That means only unladened souls can bear another's burdens.

    Both the Bible and the Qur'an says that Jesus was born as a faultless man.

    "He (Archangel Gabriel) said (to Mary): I am only a messenger of thy Lord,
    that I may bestow on thee a faultless son" (Qur'an 19:19). The Hadith
    (traditions of Islam) also says that all the children of Adam are touched by
    Satan at their birth, except Jesus, son of Mary.

    The Bible says about Jesus: "For it was fitting that we should have such a
    High Priest, holy, blameless, unstained, separated from sinners, exalted
    above the heavens" (Hebrews 7:26).

    Once Jesus directly asked to the Jews, "Which of you convicts me of sin? If
    I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? He who is of God hears the
    words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of
    God" (John 8:46).

    Yes! Jesus was faultless by birth and life. He can carry the laden of sin
    from each one of the world.

    Jesus said in the New Testament: "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy
    laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). Prophet Yahya (John the
    Baptist) was borne witness of Jesus. He declared about Jesus, "Behold, the
    Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29).

    In the second letter of Paul to the Corinthians we read: "For our sake he
    made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the
    righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21). No doubt! Jesus took all our
    sins and died on the cross to give us eternal life. "In him we have
    redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses" (Ephesians
    1:7).

    In the letter to the Hebrews also we can see as it is: "Therefore, since we
    are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every
    weight, and sins which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance
    the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter
    of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
    despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God"
    (Hebrews 12:1-2).

    In the book of Qur'an Jesus said: "And (I come) confirming that which was
    before me of the Torah (the law of Moses), and to make lawful some of that
    which was forbidden unto you. I come unto you with a sign from your Lord, so
    keep your duty to God and obey me" (Qur'an 3:50).

    "When Jesus came with clear proofs (of God's sovereignty), he said: I have
    come unto you with wisdom, and to make plain some of that concerning which
    ye differ. So keep your duty to God , and obey me" (Qur'an 43:63).

    What do you think? Isn't it a must to obey Jesus?

    But the children of Israel denied Jesus, though they were the chosen people
    of God. They lost eternity. Because they at the time looked for a warrior
    king savior they were blind to the truth that Jesus Christ was that Messiah
    promised by their own prophets.

    What about you?
