600 Years between isa and prophet(saws) state
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: .the peroid between profit mohammad and sayedna issa which is 600 years ,our God left people all this period in shurk and dalal before sending profit mohammad, as christian peoplethink sayedna essa is their God from that time .
Firstly sister, it is absolutely incorrect to believe that the followers of Prophet Isa (a.s.) considered him a god or the son of God immediately after his departure..the notion or belief of Prophet Isa (a.s.) being a god or the son of God began only a couple of centuries after him.
Secondly, the Laws of the Torah (Old Testament) and the Guidance of the Injeel (Bible) which were revealed by the Lord upon Prophet Musa (a.s.) and Prophet Isa (a.s.) were available in the times which followed Prophet Isa (a.s.) departure; and that was the Guidance for the believers from their Lord in the absence of a new Prophet. Thus it is not at all accurate to say that the Lord Most Merciful left mankind in darkness or in ignorance during the 600 odd years between the departure of Prophet Isa (a.s.) and Prophet Mohamed (saws).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 40 Surah Mumin verses 53-54:
53 We did aforetime give
Musa the (Book of) Guidance, and We gave the Book (At-Taurah) in inheritance to
the Children of
54 A Guide and a Message to men of understanding.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 44-47:
44 It was We who revealed the Torah (to Musa (a.s.)); therein was Guidance and Light. By its (the Torahs) standard have been judged the Jews by the Prophets who bowed their wills to Allah's Will, by the Rabbis and the Doctors of Law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's Book and they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men but fear Me and sell not My Revelations for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the Light of) what Allah hath Revealed, they are (no better than) disbelievers.
45 We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the Light of) what Allah hath Revealed, they are (no better than) wrong-doers.
46 And in their footsteps We sent Isa, the son of Maryam, confirming the Law (Torah) that had come before him: We sent him the Injeel (Gospel): therein was Guidance and Light and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a Guidance and an Admonition to those who fear Allah.
47 Let the people of the Injeel (the Christians) judge by what Allah hath Revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the Light of) what Allah hath Revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.
To say or claim that the Lord Most Gracious left the followers of Prophet Isa (a.s.) or mankind in darkness or dalaal for 600+ years until the advent of the Last and Final Messenger (saws) is to say that the Lord Most Merciful left the followers of Prophet Mohamed (saws) in darkness for 1400+ years!!! Just as the Divine Revelation of the Glorious Quran and the authentic and established Sunnah of Prophet Mohamed (saws) are Guidance for the believers and for mankind until the end of time, the Divine Revelations of the Torah and the Injeel and the Sunnah of their Prophets was the Guidance for the believers and for mankind of those times until the advent of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
