Muslim Character + Earth Hour + Easter

Host:Omar (GreenKufi)

EASTER – The Reality.
On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches.

Christians believe according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion, is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter.
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat (rahimahu Allah) travelled around the world for 40 years trying to educate Christians on Islam. When he was in Australia he gave a lecture on the Islamic viewpoint of Easter.
There he used the bible to argue the death of Jesus. Ahmed Deedat quoted a verse from the chapter of Mathew to claim Jesus’ only prophecy of what was going to happen to him. In this verse we read the Jews mockingly say to Jesus, “‘Master, we would like to see a sign from thee’. But he (Jesus) answered and said unto them ‘An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the Prophet Jonah; for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly, So shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
Here is an excerpt from this very interesting lecture where Sheikh Ahmed Deedat explains this example of Jonah:
