A debate between a Christian scholar and Imam Reza(PBUH)

Last Part


Imam Reza (PBUH): Thousands of Children of Israel from the fear of pestilence, had left the city; in spite that Allah took their lives in just one second. Then the people of that city, enclosed where they were, with a fence and left the dead as they were, until their bones decomposed. One of the Prophets from the children of Israel was passing that area; he was surprised at the mass of decomposed bones.
Allah said to him: would you like Me to bring them back to life so
that you may remind them the consideration and fear of Me? The
prophet replied: yees. Allah said: call them out. The Prophet did so
and said: O' decomposed bones! Rise by God's permission. They all
rose and dusted off.(3)


Imam Reza (PBUH) continued: Also, when the Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) got some different birds, cut them into pieces and placed the pieces on top of different hills, then he called them out; the birds came back to life and flew toward him. (4)


Also Moses (PBUH) along with seventy of his companions -chosen from children of Israel- went to the Mountain. They asked Moses: have you seen God? Show Him to us, too. Moses (PBUH) replied: I have not seen Him. But they persisted and said :”O' Moses! We shall never believe in you until we see Allah manifestly.”


[Qur'an, surah Baqarah, verse 55]


Imam continued: Therefore, they were burned and killed by a thunder and Moses was left alone; Moses said to Allah: O' God! I had chosen 70 of children of Israel and brought with me, now I am returning by myself.
How will my nation believe my story? “If it had been your will,
you could have destroyed, long before, both them and me; would you
destroy us for the deeds of the foolish ones among us.”
[Qur'an, Surah Aaraaf, verse 155] Allah return them to life after their death.


Then Imam Reza (PBUH) said: you can not deny any of the cases which I have mentioned; because they are verses from Torah, Psalms, Gospel and Qur'an. If any one who raises the dead and heals the blind and the leprous and the mad is God, then consider all of these prophets as God. Do you have any thing to say now?!


Yes, you are right. There is no God except Allah.

(3)Qur'an, Surah Baqarah, verse 243:


you not considered those who went forth from their homes, for fear of
death, and they were thousands, then Allah said to them, Die; again
He gave them life; most surely Allah is Gracious to people, but most
people are not grateful.


(4)Qur'an, Surah Baqarah, verse 260

(Allah)said: "Take four birds, draw them to you. Scatter their
cut pieces over the mountain-tops, then call them back. They will
come swiftly to you. Know that Allah is Mighty, Wise."


(5)Qur'an, Surah Aaraaf, verse 155
