Is there a concept of Original Sin in Islam?!

Christianity: Everyone Is Born A Sinner.

Christians believe that everyone is born a sinner. Everyone is born condemned and the only way to redeem yourself is that you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Is that really fair? I mean you are born condemned from the beginning. So even a poor innocent baby that is newly born is a sinner. If that baby does not redeem itself by putting its faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and dies then the poor baby is condemned to hell. How can you expect a baby that cannot comprehend or think to accept Jesus as its Lord? What if the poor baby dies before it grows up to become able to rationalize and accept a religion. What about a mentally retarded person that cannot think for himself? He is a sinner by nature and will be doomed to Hell for not recognizing Jesus as Lord and Savior simply because his mind cannot!

Islam: Everyone Is Born Pure:

Unlike Islam, which is a just religion does not teach original sin. Islam teaches that everyone is born pure and it is us who corrupt our selves. Islam gives the Muslims time to grow up and be able to use our rationality and reason in order to choose a religion. 

Adam And Eve :

The Christian concept of “Original Sin” is that GOD Almighty’s commands were broken by mankind starting when Adam ate the forbidden fruit, and it caused GOD Almighty to carry so much dislike to Mankind that He wants to torture all of us.  Then GOD’s lamb (Jesus) came and died on the cross for our sins and who ever believes in this tale should be saved from GOD Almighty’s torture of Hell….etc

 hmm, sorry but this story doesn’t make any sense, does it ?! this is not fair at all, because Adam when he ate from the forbidden fruit, he never asked me !! so why should I carry the sin of Adam and Eve?!

Look what the bible says :

 “The person who sins will die The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself”. (Ezekiel 18 :20)

 Even your bible refutes you !!

 

Everyone will end up in HELL:

I once was heard that everyone before Jesus will end up in “hell” or “Death. So Moses for instance will end up in Hell, because of this “Original Sin”.  That’s why GOD supposedly gave mankind one last chance before He puts the remaining ones of them in Hell by sending His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. 

We Muslims on the other hand, agree that GOD Almighty became very upset from Adam and his wife Eve, but He the Almighty then forgave them and gave Adam peace be upon him Divine Revelations, thus Adam became Allah Almighty’s first Messenger and Prophet.  We don’t believe that whoever came before Jesus will end up in Hell, because Islam didn’t start with Muhammad peace be upon him.  No, Islam started with Adam and continued with all the prophets till Muhammed peace be upon them all ..

Learn From The Original FORGIVENESS, Not Original SIN:

Adam and Eve were the first humans to sin. We are supposed to learn that it is human nature to sin and that the devil is going to try and trick us into committing sin just like how he did with Adam and Eve. Then after we sin we do like Adam and Eve did and then turn to God in sincere repentance. So this is a lesson of original FORGIVENESS and not original SIN. If we sin, then it is our fault and not Adam and Eve fault. God does not create us as sinners. He creates us pure and then it is us who sin and make ourselves impure.

    The whole idea of the original sin crumbles down through the bible itself. To think that millions of people believed that concept and till this day do if frightening. Allah is the most merciful, He created us, He gave us the chance to do right or wrong knowing what the end results of both actions would be. If you repent to him he forgives even if you have sinned. Why then would one need a saviour to save us from this original sin when Allah can forgive them in an instance.
