And they do not forbid what Allah has made forbidden. Do the Christians follow Allah's Sharee`ah? Do they forbid what Allah told them to forbid in their Tauraah, in the book that, which is mentioned even in their gospel, that `Eesaa has said that he didn’t come to go away with Tauraah, but he has come to observe it and uphold it. Do the Christians observe the law of Torah? No. Do they abstain from what Allah has forbidden? No. They eat pork, they have made marriage of more than one woman forbidden for them, they do not circumcise themselves, even though this is a covenant, the token between God and Abraham, as mentioned in Genesis. The laws of Allah subhaanahu wa ta`aalaa, like stoning the one who commits the adultery, killing the homosexuals...do they apply this now? You see this in Christian lands, applying Allah’s laws, killing the murderer?
Likewise, they have made lawful for themselves, adultery is now lawful in Christian countries. It is no longer a crime. And also the acts of homosexuals are lawful in Christian contries.
And likewise do they follow the true religion of Islaam? Allah says in the Qur’aan in soorat Aali-`Imraan:
"Innad-deena `indAllahil Islaam." The true religion with Allah is Islaam [3:19].
And He says:
"And whoever seeks a religion other than Islaam it will not be accepted of him and in the Hereafter he will be of the losers" [3:85].
Do the Christians follow the true relgion? Are they Muslims? No. That’s why they call themselves Christians. Where they to be muslims, why would they call themselves Christians? So therefore when Allah subhaanahu wa ta`aalaa says these four qualities which apply upon them completely, he says from those who have disbelieved or from those who have been given the book, this is them.
