This is a serialization of the book titled ‘Crisis in Islam’. The full book and its Endnotes may be accessed at:
In the previous chapter, I concluded that Islam came to the Arabs in their tongue and it did not come to others, because Allah has committed Himself that He would not punish until He sends a messenger, and He would warn every people in their tongue. That is what He did with the Hebrews in Hebrew, with Arameans in Aramaic, and no doubt with the Chinese in Chinese and with the Indians in Hindi and the like. Thus He equally did with the Arabs in Arabic.
This is His wisdom and His justice and they cannot be but that.
When His non-Arab servant stands before Him, how is He going to judge that servant for not accepting the Qur’an, which came in a language foreign to him? Isn’t that servant entitled to ask the Almighty, why he was told to follow a Messenger in a language he was not created with, and to read a book that was sent to another people, telling them stories and lessons from their history, without this book mentioning one story or lesson of what happened to the people of that servant, now standing before Him?
