In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O You Doubters, Praise and Worship Allah! How is it that you are so hard in your hearts, and so blind in your minds? How is it that you have not believed the Word of Allah? There has come to you many Prophets, prophesying that you must Repent, and Pray to Allah with all your heart! Allah Knows all things from the Beginning — wherefore, He prepares a way to accomplish all His Works. He has all Power unto the Fulfilling of all His Words! Are you able to withstand Him? No!
The kings of the earth set themselves against Allah, and against His Anointed One — the Christ, whose name is John! You who say: “We believe in Jesus!” ….. Why do you not believe his words? Search these Scriptures! Verily, he said: “Look out that no one misleads you saying: ‘I am the Christ’ ….. I have no witness from the Sons of men! When the Christ shall come, you’ll be looking for me. Are you? The False pen of the Scribes has made this lie — whence comes countless sects of wicked doctrine! No man has ever heard me say that I am the Christ! Do you say this on your own accord, or do others suggest it to you about me? Messiahs are not made by men!” …..
Jesus announced that John was the Christ, and also spoke concerning a Prophet who would come before the Christ! He said to his Disciples: “My soul is magnified today, for my eyes have seen wonderful things! I see with my eyes two peoples to come forth. They will rise up, that He Who sent me may be glorified! And men will follow them who do not regard the person of the sinful rich, and who do not fear the men who lead them astray! By them shall things be revealed, and hidden things will come to light, for things that are not known shall be made known by them! Woe to those who shall hate and despise them, for theirs is destruction! Now hear their names, Muhammad the Sacred Messenger of Allah, and John, son of John, the Messiah! There shall come a number of false prophets, save these two! Be not lifted up against these two tribes! Their branches shall stretch afar off, saving every race of men. Beware therefore of all jealousy and envy and walk in singleness of heart, for from them shall arise unto you the salvation of Allah!” …..
When Muhammad came, he was a Burning and Shining Light! The People were willing for a season to rejoice in that Light, and Allah became a Pillar to them. Because of this, numberless multitudes were filled with the Spirit, and acknowledged and served Allah. They knew that Allah had created them, and they did as He Commanded!
The kings of the earth, being Gentiles, were surrounded by the multitudes and their Faith! Thus they were overcome and became wroth! Because of the hardness of their hearts — they gathered together and conspired, saying: “They do as Allah commands, and rebel against us, and shall rebel against our seed also! The True Light is already shining. When this Messiah, John shall come, no one will be troubled, they will increase and multiply on earth! How will we be able to withstand him? He is not one who’ll regard the person, even if we offered him everything upon the earth — we’ll be unable to bribe him. For thus has it been Written and Ordained!” …..
Then one of them said: “History repeats itself! Even before our time, Allah sent Prophets to other Nations! I’ll use the Children of Israel for an example. The Jews were rebels, and set up stumbling-blocks!” ….. then setting forth a Book, he said: “Read this! What do you behold? Do you understand what you are reading? No! It is a record of the Jews, and proceeded out of the mouth of a Jew. Before proceeding out of the mouth of a Jew, it was from the Book of Moses which clearly explained things in detail! But they put forth their hand and created disorder in it, to Deceive and Destroy. Many parts, plain and precious, and also many covenants of Allah, have they taken away from it. Now they are malignant — corrupting, and lead astray! And all this they did to pervert the right ways of Allah! Therefore, let us consult and make an agreement with them!” ….. They all then agreed, with a view of bringing about destruction and annihilation of the Scriptures and the People!
Thereupon they sought consultation from the Jews! A delegation consisting of Rabbis, Scribes and Elders came to them. When they gathered together, a spokesman from the kings said: “Because of this Muhammad and the Revelations he received, many of our people have rebelled against us — they laboriously serve Allah after having all things made known to them! We fear that when this Messiah comes they will increase and multiply! For he will be endowed with the spirit of understanding, and shepherd the flock of the Lord faithfully, and lead them all aright. They shall live according to the Law of Allah, and act according to His Judgments! How will we be able to withstand him? Give us your advice and counsel, for he will surely defeat us. We will give you much gold, silver, and gifts, and repay you with good what you do for us. We desire to kill him!” …..
The head of the Delegation, one of the elders, replied: “Make a treaty with us, and we will serve you on this condition!” ….. and a covenant was then made. Then he resumed speaking, saying: “Though most men do not know it — John is not only the Christ, and Head of the Prophets, but he is also Heir-apparent to Zakariya whom we killed! Zakariya was the Guardian of the Virgin Book, and we altered the words. As for you killing John — when will his kingdom come? No one knows the Hour! He may not come in your time, but may come many years after you!” ….. The kings’ spokesman then said: “Explain to us what you have written!” ….. He then replied: “We took words out of context, and mixed the Truth with Falsehood to mislead people without their knowledge! Diverting them from the Truth, we wrote of things which are to come as though they already happened; we made holy what Allah abhors, and things He loves, we made unclean — thus turning things around! Owing to these things, men have mis-believed, and do not walk in the path of Righteousness!” ….. It was then asked: “Since no one knows when the Christ will come, how can we deal with him?” …..
One of the scribes replied: “Take a book in your hands and write by the form we have modeled, and prophesy deceits! Since he is the head of the Prophets, say that John was the son of Zakariya, and that he was beheaded. All but killing him, he will be considered dead! And say that Jesus is the Christ, and the Son of God, and to worship him! After it is established, say that the book is sealed. Then they will cleave to the name of a dead man — thinking they will become pure. Many may not believe in the beginning, but in the course of time they will, for great is the blindness of those who read. Do this, then when the Christ shall come, perhaps he’ll be duped — for who can take a clean thing, out of that which is unclean? Who will be able to understand the counsel of the Almighty or proclaim it correctly? Even he will be unable to see the Light!” …..
“How about now?” ….. it was asked: “The Book has already been written, and many know and believe and worship Allah!” ….. An elder replied: “Oppose them, and utterly destroy all that they have! There are also those who have committed the Book to memory — do not spare them, lest they destroy your purpose! All you kings and rulers, you know how this rebellion has risen — they rebel against you because you rejected the Word of Allah! Disperse men among the people, and those who sin and do not rebel against you, spare them. But those who believe — slay! Let not your hearts be troubled. If you do it not, then you may be killed and your kingdom will not continue! Are not your sons here? Do it for their sakes, and the sake of your kingdoms — you will not be killing without a cause!
Gather together an Army of men devoted to destruction, then mobilize and go south as far as Ethiopia — make a great slaughter among them and destroy the Books of Scripture that you may find — namely the Gospel and the Qur’an! Once you have gathered your Army together and prepared them — depart and go into the Land of Judah, and you shall be in safekeeping. Our role will be to surrender, and take note of all the lurking places where they hide! We shall give your enemies into your hands, and you shall do to them as it shall seem good to you. For you have paid us well, and you have sworn that you will not cut off our descendants, and you will not destroy our name!” …..
***Birth of Christianity***
Then a Rabbi from the Delegation spoke, saying: “When you have gathered together all the Books, alter them — establish that Jesus is the Christ, and call the religion Christianity, then John’s name will be rooted out. Misrepresent the facts that have been recorded in Jesus’ sayings and doings. Read over your set of works — comparing your several results and making them all agree, and then people will regard everything as being righteous!
Do not mention the name of Allah, Who is Forgiving, and Merciful! Adapt, adopt, and encourage the beliefs, practices, and rites of the Pagans, so as to convert them to your Religion! Remember to make holy what is unclean, and unclean, what is holy — then they may go wrong, and eat all kinds of flesh. Also make Abominable Days — days of celebration and feast days, and thus confound them! They will go backwards instead of forward, and worship Baal and Ishtar, and thus be your enslaved servants because of these things. After you have done these things, found a Priesthood and teach them what you have written, that they may teach the people — this has been our custom, and it has been successful. And if you do these things, successful will be your works!” …..
They persuaded the kings with these words, ending it with: “This is between us and you, and if you do so — remember that our hand will not be against you! Therefore make your judgment! Surely your religion shall be established, and your kingdoms maintained!” ….. afterwards the Delegation ate, drank, and made merry — then left and went upon their way! Then the kings conferred. Their spokesman said: “These men were good to us, as were their advice — they did not miss anything! Now consider what we should do!” ….. and they all responded as with one voice: “We shall go along with their advice!” ….. Reasoning not aright, they said: “Let us oppress the righteous, and let our strength be to us a law of righteousness!” ….. They then swore an oath and bound themselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon the plan!
They gathered their forces for War, and told them of their mission! They said to them: “Go to the land of Judah, enter peaceably, for there you will be advised! As you go along your way, save neither the lives of man or woman, let none of them escape — lest they shall tell about us! No punishment shall come upon you for this thing!” ….. Riding on horses, and furnished with all sorts of war instruments — they entered into Judah, where they were nourished, and briefed by their advisors as to what they were to do. They were given information about the leaders and places they were to destroy, and were told: “Whomsoever you encounter along your way, tell them: ‘Come forth and do as our rulers command and you shall live!’ ….. and if they do not wish to do this, and are strong in their Faith — they should be smitten with your swords and removed! There are some evil and unbelieving men in these Lands, and it would be better for you not to go to battle with them! Know and understand that you have not come to fight against them, but against those who believe, and worship Allah — some repudiate the holy covenants, and will enjoin themselves to you. Form a treaty with them, and supplicate them that they should form a treaty with us!” …..
Those who were Strong in Faith, said: “Heaven forbid that we should forsake our Law and Ordinances, by departing from our worship of Allah! We will not do with accordance to your rulers! We rather die in our innocence, and bear witness that you destroy us wrongfully!” ….. And as for this Wicked Army, dissension and harm they brought upon these lands — shedding innocent blood, and defiling the places of worship! When they entered the cities listed — most of the Leaders and People were unarmed, for they desired to live in Peace. Going door by door, the Books of the Law that they found, they rent in pieces and burned them in fire, and laid low the walls of such who did them no harm. If they found anyone practicing tenets of the Law — such were condemned to death, even entire families!
O you who adhere to the Bible! From the Lips of Wickedness and the Framers of Lies, the scribes wrote this book in accordance to these kings and Jews — that men be in subjection and obedience to them! Woe to those who distort the Decrees of Allah! They dislocated the words from their places, and you will not cease to discover deceitful practices among them!
This is an account of Secret History that We have revealed to you! You were not present when they devised their plan, but nothing is hidden from Allah — He is the All-Seeing, the All-Knowing, and the Best of Planners! We narrate to you the most accurate history, although prior to it you were unaware. Now you shall have a perfect knowledge of their guilt, uncleanness, and nakedness! Come and strengthen yourselves, and consider what you have to do. You have done evil in the sight of your Lord on account of those who did wickedly! You served Baal a little, now serve Allah much! You are not to blame — it was they who conspired against Allah!
Whoever repents and amends, Allah is inclined to forgive! He Punishes whom He Pleases, and Pardons whom He Pleases. Men who judge not according to what Allah Reveals, are Unjust Transgressors! Follow not their desires by swerving from the Truth! Show your zeal for the Lord — turn from your evil ways, and keep His Commandments and Statutes. Give thanks to Allah, and call upon His Name! He will give you Peace from all your enemies, and give you Wisdom and Understanding. Be of good courage, and fear not, nor be dismayed. You will prosper if you observe these commands, so be strong and do it — for He is Good, and His Steadfast Love endures Forever!
