"Thank you David. The more you bring up issues like this, the more I learn about my religion :)
I appreciate it."
Welcome to the Answering Muslims School of Islamic Instruction, Kim! To further your education, let me add two ahadith to our recent discussion of Allah punishing Christians and Jews for the sins of Muslims. I'd like to see how you think they line up with your commentaries.
To review (for those just tuning in), I've already quoted two ahadith from a section of Sahih Muslim titled: "THROWING OF NON-BELIEVERS IN HELL-FIRE FOR BELIEVERS AS DIVINE GRACE AND MERCY." The two passages read:
Sahih Muslim 6666—Allah’s Apostle said: No Muslim would die but Allah would admit in his stead a Jew or a Christian in Hell-Fire.
Sahih Muslim 6668—Allah’s Messenger [said]: There would come people amongst the Muslims on the Day of Resurrection with as heavy sins as a mountain, and Allah would forgive them and He would place in their stead the Jews and the Christians.
According to Kim, these ahadith do not teach substitutionary atonement (i.e. they don't say that non-Muslims will be punished for the sins of Muslims). To see how Kim is once again contradicting her prophet, let's read two more ahadith:
Sahih Muslim 6665—Abu Musa reported that Allah's Messenger said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire.
110 Hadith Qudsi—Allah’s Messenger said: On the Day of Resurrection, my Ummah (nation) will be gathered into three groups. One sort will enter Paradise without rendering an account (of their deeds). Another sort will be reckoned an easy account and admitted into Paradise. Yet another sort will come bearing on their backs heaps of sins like great mountains. Allah will ask the angels though He knows best about them: Who are these people? They will reply: They are humble slaves of yours. He will say: Unload the sins from them and put the same over the Jews and Christians: then let the humble slaves get into Paradise by virtue of My Mercy.
Here Muhammad says, quite clearly, that the Christians and Jews are a "rescue" from hellfire for Muslims, and that Allah will "unload the sins" from the backs of Muslims and place them on Jews and Christians.
Care to reinterpret these for us, Kim? If you can't, are you going to admit that, by complaining about substitutionary atonement, you have condemned your god, your prophet, and your religion? And if you've sinned against Allah in this way, will Allah punish me for your blasphemies?
