Christian theologians often peddle the misconception that one can not enter a personal relationship with Allah in attempt to present their triune beliefs. By claiming the relationship with God is one of dictatorship, they then present a belief of an all loving God in which you are his child and he is your father.Reply
However Islam elevates the concept of Gods mercy and his relationship with His servant to another level all together, when the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) expresses that Gods mercy is far greater than a mother for its child, which just so happens to be greater than a fathers love for his son:
Allah’s Messenger peace be upon him affirmed that Allah is More Merciful to His servants than a mother to her child (Tirmidhi 756)
Even more so the following hadith gives indication of how little a mother’s mercy is compared to the Mercy of Allah:
Allah divided Mercy into one-hundred parts and He kept its ninety-nine parts with Him and sent down its one part on the earth, and because of that, its one single part, His creations are Merciful to each other, so that even the mare lifts up its hoofs away from its baby animal, lest it should trample on it. (Sahih Bukhari 8:29)
Therefore the father and son relationship becomes rather small and insignificant when faced with the infinite mercy of Allah.
The question still burns, can we have a personal relationship with God? Or is the Islamic view or a relationship with God confined to a ball and chain? A servant and a dictatorship?
The Holy Quran states that Jesus was counted amongst those who are close to God (3:45) but yet the Quran also states that Jesus said ‘Indeed I am a servant of God’ (19.verse) Allah makes it very clear in the Quran concerning this point when He says:
The Messiah would never refuse to be a servant of God(Qur’an 172)
Yet we find Christian theologians strongly objecting to a personal relationship with God that promotes any servitude. As the Quran is not an authority for the Christians we therefore have to look to the Bible and see what it it to say on this issue and when we do we find that Jesus and many other Prophets are given the title servant of God
a. God calls Abraham my servant Gen 26:24
b. Moses the servant of God 1Ch 6:49 2Ch 24:9 Neh 10:29 Dan 9:11 Rev 15:3
c. David calls him self servant of God 1Sa 23:10
d. Matthew 12:18 Jesus is called servant !!!
e. Acts 4:27 - 30 Thy holy Servant Jesus, whom Thou didst anoint,..." but yet in the KJV version of the Bible they have purposely mistranslated the greek word ‘pais’ which means ‘servant’ or ‘slave’ as ‘Child’ but if we look to the Gideons New Testament, The New English Bible, New international Version, Good News Edition they all honestly translate the word ‘pais’ as ‘servant’
f. The Preacher and king of Christianity Paul is labeled a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, Tts 1:1
This type of tampering with the religious scripture clearly demonstrates the falsehood and deceptiveness in the methodology of Christianity’s preaching of the doctrine of Trinity by going to such extremes and exaggeration in their religion. The last and final Prophet said concerning this:
“Do not exaggerate me, as the Christians exaggerated about the son of Maryam. I am only a servant, so say 'the servant of Allah and Messenger of Allah” (Sahih Bukhari)
