The Truth Or The Religious Element (9)
When the Pharisees had asked Jesus to make them see a sign from the sky, he declined their request and went on (Matthew XVI, 1-4). Moses threw his stick and it is transformed, to his surprise, in a real snake,
“He cast it down, and behold! It was a snake, moving quickly.” (XX, 20). Jesus called the dead person, and it is by God’s authority, that the dead person came back to life,
“(Remember) when Allâh will say (on the Day of Resurrection). “O 'Isâ (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Re-member My Favour to you and to your mother when I sup-ported you with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibril (Gabriel)] so that you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and when I taught you Book, Al-Hikmah (the power of understanding, the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel); and when you made out of the clay a figure like that of bird, by My Permission, and you breathed into it, and it became a bird by My Permission, and you healed those born blind, and the lepers by My Permission, and when you brought forth the dead by My Permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from you (when they resolved to kill you ) as you came unto them with clear proofs, and the disbelievers among them said: “This is nothing but evident magic.” (V, 110).
It is the same thing concerning Muhammad’s action. Thus, at the beginning of the Islamic message, the recitation of several verses of the Qur’an disarmed the must fierce rebels and made them pass from the emotional death to the spiritual life,
“O you who believe! Answer Allâh (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he calls you to that which will give you life; and know that Allâh comes in between a person and his heart (i.e. He prevents an evil person to decide anything). And verily to Him you shall (all) be gathered.” (VIII, 24).
It was not Muhammad who opened their closed hearts (ibid). Afterward, the society, divided and tormented by hate and domestic war, became one united group of intimate brothers. There is none but God who has the power over hearts or can join them together,
“And if they intend to deceive you, then verily Allâh is All-Sufficient for you. He it is Who has supported you with His Help and with the believers.” (VIII, 62);
“And hold fast, all of you together to the Rope of Allâh (i.e. this Qur’an), and be not divided among your-selves, and remember Allâh’s Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islamic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it.” (III, 103).
 Compare with the Gospel “But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God...? (Matt. XII, 28).
