apologize to anyone who may be offended by the history of the founder of
Islam (Muhammad) below. And we are aware of the sensitivities
involved. However, infinitely more damage has been done to Islam's
"believers" by Islam's history of withholding the truth about its
founder to them -- - and the circumstances surrounding its inception --
than any "damage" this true history below can cause.
As you will see below, Muhammad posed as an apostle of God. Yet his life is filled with lustfulness (12 marriages and sex with a child, slaves and concubines), rapes, warfare, conquests, and unmerciful butcheries. The infinitely good, just and all holy God simply cannot tolerate anything in the least unjust or sinful. What Muhammad produced in the Qur'an is simply a book of gibberish consisting of later evil verses abrogating (superseding) earlier peaceful verses. These verses in Arabic poetically "tickle" the ears of Arab listeners. Islam is a caustic blend of paganism and twisted Bible stories. Muhammad, its lone "prophet", who made no prophecies, conceived his religion to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money. He was a terrorist. And if you think these conclusions are shocking, wait until you see the evidence mostly from Islamic historians below. 70% of what is here is from Muslim and ex-Muslim historians - back to the 8th century and the Qur'an itself.
The main intent of this article is to warn Christians who may be "fooled" into Islam, because they did not have all the facts. It is a matter of grave concern. If you reject Jesus and the salvation He made possible -- and follow Islam, your entire salvation (where you will spend eternity) is at stake. Islam can deceive you. It can fool the very elect. It rejects the salvation Jesus has made possible. Islam spreads the lie that Jesus never even died on a cross. That alone makes it demonic. This document also exists as a reference document to get out the truth which Muslims are never allowed to see. Of all the holy books in the world, Satan has taken pains to ensure that Muhammad and his Qur'an defiantly stand in diametrical opposition to Jesus, the Son of God, the true Prince of Peace - and his New Testament.
The immortal souls of billions of individuals are involved here. To good Muslims I say; "I have sympathy with your having to grow up in a closed society -- where not embracing Islam would have gotten you shunned or even killed". According to many interpretations of the Qur'an (aka: Koran), conversion to a faith other than Islam is punishable by death. Like Satan's slavery, Islam maintains a choke hold on its followers. This sorrowful situation most Muslims are born into should arouse compassion and not scorn, from the followers of the Christ.
Jesus never said a true prophet would appear in the last days. Rather, He said false prophets would arise who would deceive, if possible, the very elect.
One Must be a Christian to be Saved! References for this is found in John 14:6; Acts 4:12, and 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16. One cannot be a Christian without verbally confessing the deity of Jesus the Christ. One cannot even pray to God, let alone have sins remitted by Him, without approaching Him through Jesus (John 14:6 and 13, 15:16; 16:23-24; Romans 5:2, and Ephesians 2:18). I know Muslims and Mormons, Christian Scientists and Seventh Day Adventists will not want to hear this, but the Bible declares that Jesus was the FINAL revelation of God to man. There have been no others. (The Quran Unveiled).
When a Muslim declares that Islam is a religion of peace, he/she is either ignorant of the Koran (Qur'an), or is deceitfully thinking of this "peace", as it extends only to those within the Muslim Community. The deceit is that they will not tell you exactly what they mean. According to the Qur'an: "Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to unbelievers" Surah 48:29. "Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush..." Surah 9:5. Also see Surah 9:29: PICKTHAL: "Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture (Christians & Jews) as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.". Please note that there is not a single verse in the entire Christian Bible that contains this "open-ended", universal command to kill/or be ruthless to unbelievers.
Surah 47:4 says:
Fa'idhā Laqītumu Al-Ladhīna Kafarū Fađarba Ar-Riqābi Ĥattaá 'Idhā 'Athkhantumūhum Fashuddū Al-Wathāqa Fa'immā Mannāan Ba`du Wa 'Immā Fidā'an Ĥattaá Tađa`a Al-Ĥarbu 'Awzārahā Dhālika Wa Law Yashā'u Allāhu Lāntaşara Minhum Wa Lakin Liyabluwa Ba`đakum Biba`đin Wa Al-Ladhīna Qutilū Fī Sabīli Allāhi Falan Yuđilla 'A`mālahum
Therefore, WHEN YOU MEET THE UNBELIEVERS, SMITE AT THEIR NECKS; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah's Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.
Many Quran translators have tried to soften the meaning in their translation by adding the words “in war” in brackets after the word “Unbelievers” but they are NOT there in the original Arabic text.
Allah - the Pagan god:
Islam, teaches that Jews and Christians both have earned the wrath of Allah by failing to follow Islam, and that they have also lost the way by following the teachings of the Torah for the Jews, or the Bible for Christians. Additionally, This god Allah (with a little g) lies about Jesus. Islam says that Jesus not only is not the Son of God, but that He did not even die on a cross in Jerusalem... Allah is therefore proven to be a false pagan god... Jews also do not believe this about Jesus (Yeshua). Who will believe it? The greatest of kings. Born in the humblest of places.... God, born in the flesh! The Apostle Paul tells us that Jews have been supernaturally blinded to this by God. Yet Christians and Jews worship the same God (Yahweh) and share the same Bible. Learn more. See movies "The Nativity Story" and "Jesus", here.
About 578 years before Islam came along, Christians were warned against Islam by both Jesus and the Apostle Paul. Jesus warned us about the many false prophets who would follow Him (Matthew 16:11-12) . Paul warned us when he wrote:
“But even if we (or an angel from heaven) should preach a Gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be condemned to hell!” (Galatians 1:8).
Since Islam’s message differs fundamentally from the Gospel, it is clear what Paul taught regarding the fate of Muhammad and those who propagate Islam. Islam bypasses the sacrificial mediating work Jesus did for believers on the cross, thus negating the forgiveness of sins. This condemns non-believers to die in their sins. Jesus said; "I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins." John 8:24
Jesus also predicted the current dilemma of Muslim intolerance and fanaticism. He warned that the day was likewise coming when religious zealots will kill Christians and think they are offering a service to God (John 16:2-4).
Dear Christians and Muslims. Jesus is committed to winning the spiritual Holy War. He wants nobody to suffer an eternity without God, confined to a godless place. Know this, that God Himself is calling out those Muslims with good hearts! Jesus (Isa) Himself is appearing to many. A few years ago, Al-Jazeera reported that roughly six million Muslims are leaving Islam and becoming followers of Jesus every year in Africa. In 2005, roughly 250,000 Muslims converted to Christianity in Iran. Between 2003-2005, roughly 1 million Muslims converted to Christianity in Arab countries. Muslims are coming to Christ in North America, too, although not to the same extent as in Muslim countries. Tens of millions are embracing Jesus every few years in India and in China. Chinese missionaries are now gearing up to bring the Gospel of Jesus to dark Muslim places.
Read the true history of Islam below and then look into your own heart to see if you are missing something; or if you have been lied to regarding Islam itself.
This information on the history of Muhammad and the history of Islam comes primarily from Muslim historians and from the Qur'an (Koran) itself... These and other references/sources used for this study follow below:
The Qur'an itself calls the Gospel of Jesus "Guidance and Light"
The biggest threat to Islam is without a doubt the teachings of the true "Prophet of Peace" Jesus Christ. Islamic leaders go to extraordinary means to hide the Gospel of Jesus from Muslims.
The fact that Muslims do not read and study the New Testament / the Gospel of Jesus is yet another contradiction in Islam. Question the "dark side" - the Islamic Fear of Christianity. Just as Satan wails at a crucifix at an exorcism - the Islamic cult member normally wails at the sight of the Christian Bible. A false prophet can always be recognized, because he attacks the true prophet. A false Bible can be recognized, because it contradicts the true Bible.
Islam goes one step further. First Islam tries to gain acceptance by attesting to the truth and validity of both the Christian and Jewish holy books. But, it then clearly steps out of the light, exposing itself to its diabolical agenda, by contradicting and falsifying the facts and teachings in both these books. Also, question the "dark side" of a Religion such as Islam that requires you to only recite salah and prayers like the Namaz, in a language (Arabic) you do not understand. All Muslims, Arab and non-Arab alike, are obliged to pray in Arabic. Even if you do not understand a single word. Muslims are also required to read the Qur'an in Arabic, in order to attain any graces at all from Allah. It is not necessary that the person can understand even a word of what he is reading. This is what the warning means that Jesus left us with, when he said; "insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Most Muslims do repetitive prayers in a language (Arabic) which they do not understand. The mandatory recital - The Shahadah: Ash hadu ala ilah ha ilahlah wa ash hadu anna Muhammadah Rasullulah. Translated, it says; "I testify that there is no god but allah and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah."
You cannot recite only “ I testify that there is no god but Allah “ and not include “Muhammad is the prophet of Allah “ . That is forbidden or ‘haram’. You must recite “ Muhammad is the prophet of Allah “.
See a graphic example of the Christian idea of Jesus as our mediator and one with the Father (same light and substance) in this true Near Death Experience here
Islam claims that Allah is the same God who was revealed in the Bible. . . . then if the Bible and the Qur'an have differing views of God, then Islam's claim is false. Don't forget that Muhammad claimed in Suras 2:87, 29:46, 32:23, 5:44, 6:154, 6:155 that Allah confirmed the Torah (Taurat) and Christian Gospel (Injeel) (Surah 2:87, 5:46, 5:68, 29:46 and 43:63). So, if the Torah and Gospel are correct, all the errors in the Qur'an shown below make the Qur'an false.
Islam and Christianity are forever diametrically opposed:
A tenet of Islam is that both Mohammed and Jesus of Nazareth were both Muslims. Islam says both were prophets sent by Allah. If this were true, then it is mandatory that these two great prophets must coincide exactly in all points and never contradict each other. Did not the same Allah send both of them? Then, aren't even the smallest of contradictions between the two, very big red flags? And there are a great many, which you will see below. Christianity and Islam are necessarily forever diametrically opposed to one another, just as evil and good are. Oral confession of the deity of Jesus Christ is prerequisite to becoming a Christian (Romans 10:9-10). To a Muslim, this is blasphemy. To a Christian it is blasphemy to not attribute divinity to Jesus the Christ. The New Testament could not be clearer on this subject. The heart, core and soul of Christianity is allegiance to Jesus Christ as God, Lord, and Savior! Were Jesus Christ who the Muslim Qur'an who it makes him out to be, then Christianity would be blasphemous and baseless.
Islam says that Jesus did not die. So, again --Islam has proven to be false; because Muhammad claimed the Gospel is true, and all 4 Gospels (Injil) testify that Jesus died and rose from the dead. God does have a begotten Son (not made, but one with the Father), which Islam denies. The Jewish Torah / Taurat (Tawrat) clearly indicated this over 1000 years before Muhammad and Islam. In addition their are collateral 1st century sources that testify that Jesus was put to death. In the "Annals" written by Roman historian Tacitus, in Book XV, Chapter 44 we read "Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius." Roman historian Josephus also wrote about the death and Resurrection of Jesus. Even Satan says that Jesus died on the cross. Also, the Roman Historian Seutonius wrote in his work "Life of the Emperor Claudius" the following about Christians: "and deny the gods of Greece, and worship the crucified sage, and live after his laws." The Roman historian Pliny wrote about Jesus' death in Book X of his Epistles. Julius Africanus, quoting Thallus another Roman historian, who wrote in about 52 A.D. about the miraculas happenings the day the Son of God was killed. He wrote: "On the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness; and the rocks were rent by an earthquake, and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down". Like Muhammad, Satan also cringes in fear at the sight of the cross. Read this true Exorcism here
Even after Allah confirmed the Torah and Gospel, Islamic Mullahs and Imams have tried to sell the lie that the Christian Gospels and Jewish Torah have been corrupted.
This a complete lie! This lie is perpetuated by Islam, because of all the historic, scientific, and simple mathematical errors in the Koran/Qur'an - as you'll see below... The Qur'an just doesn't add up.
"They" could not have changed the Christian Gospels after Muhammad, since there are 5,735 (Welte, 2003) manuscripts of the whole or part of the Greek text of the New Testament (Injil) pre-dating Muhammad still in existence. Worldwide, there are 24,800 copies of these original manuscripts. These include the Codex Vaticanus (325-350 AD) located in the Vatican library and the Codex Siniaticus (350 AD) located in the British Museum. There are also 80,000 quotations in the works of early Christian writers which are so extensive that the New Testament could virtually be reconstructed from them without the actual New Testament documents. Then there is the obvious fact that the Christian Gospels were so widely distributed both before and after Muhammad, that any attempt to change (add/subtract) something in the Christian Gospels would have resulted in immediate discovery and condemnation. Additionally, the New Testament was handed down from apostolic times and its genuineness was guarded by Christian churches, and it was zealously watched by enemies of Christianity. A very wide protest would have resulted from both sides were it tampered with. Likewise, the Septuagint edition of the Old Testament was always in the hands of both Christians and Jews, both rivals in religion. Any attempts to change this by either side would have been vigorously attacked.
There are four more "safeguards" for the integrity of the Bible. (1) Jesus Himself read from Isaiah scroll in a Synagogue in Nazareth and declared it as Scripture (inspired from God), Luke 4:16-21; (2) The Dead Sea scrolls, found in 1947, verified the Jewish Torah back to 100 AD to 200 BC, when they were copied. Prior to this discovery, the oldest Torah dated to the 9th century AD. The Dead Sea scroll of Isaiah verified almost exactly the Isaiah scroll copied in the 9th century; (3) Early Church Fathers like Ignatius, Clement of Rome, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Irenaeus, who wrote from between 90-160 AD all cited in their writings Christian Gospel accounts (Guthrie, 1990, page 24); (4) We know that the writings of Moses were preserved as far back as 621 BC. 2 Kings 22 speaks of this at the time of the Israeli King Josiah. Ezra 7:14, Nehemiah 8:1-18, and Jeremiah 36 also speaks of the Jews maintaining Scripture.
Some versions of the Bible from 1881 differ in a few words here and there. However, the essential theological points remain the same and are complete. Bibles we recommend, that have not changed are:
The Christian Bible predates Muhammad and Islam by more than 575 years. The Jewish Torah predates Muhammad and Islam by 1,000 - 3,000 years. Muhammad said for Muslims to read the Bible for "Guidance and Light." For Islam to say they are corrupted, then is to call Muhammad a liar for recommending it.
The same Bible Muhammad would have seen (if he ever did) is in both (1) The Vatican (Codex Vaticanus) and (2) British Museum (Codex Sinaticus). It is all there, including Jesus dying on the cross as atonement for our sins. And, His resurrection, and ascension into heaven - in front of many witnesses. The New Testament is preserved in almost perfect condition in these two Greek texts which both predate Muhammad and Islam by over 200 years.
Everything in the Christian/Jewish Bible is being authenticated by archeology. Consider the Babylonian cylinder inscription of Nabonidus (thought to be the last king of Babylon) which commemorates the reconstruction of a ziggurat at Ur by Nabonidus and records a prayer to Belshazzar (Daniel 5) his son 'the firstborn son, the offspring of my heart'. Not only does this prove that Belshazzar was indeed a member of the Babylonian royal family, which had long been disputed, but it also explains why Daniel is told he could be the third ruler (with Nabonidus and Belshazzar more or less acting as co-regents). Also, consider the 'chariot wheels' divers found in the Red Sea, proving the Hebrew Exodus from Egypy was real; and that the Egyptian army chasing the Jews was drowned by God (Yahweh), just as was recorded in the Jewish Bible.
The uninspired Qur'an
The Jewish and Christian Bibles were written by "inspired men of God" who immediately committed God's Word to writing. Islam doesn't even have either an original or inspired Qur'an. The Muslim Qur'an was made up supposedly from "memory" from those who supposedly committed the words of Muhammad to memory, and from a few scraps found under a bed. This was originally begun about 15-20 years after Muhammad died at his wife Ayish's home in Medina, and he was lowered into a hole in the ground, where he remains. The compilation was not finished until at least 150 years after Muhammad's death. This "hearsay" argument seriously brings the credibility of the Qur'an into question. But, that's only the beginning. All the errors, including simple mathematical and historical errors you will see in the Qur'an below renders it impossible to be a divine revelation.
Al Bukhari, a Muslim scholar of the 9th-10th century, and the most authoritative of the Muslim tradition compilers, writes that whenever Muhammad fell into one of his unpredictable trances his revelations were written on whatever was handy at the time. The leg or thigh bones of dead animals were used, as well as palm leaves, parchments, papers, skins, mats, stones, and bark. And when there was nothing at hand the attempt was made by his disciples to memorize it as closely as possible.
Zaid b. Thabit said: “The Prophet died and the Qur’an had not been assembled into a single place.” (p. 118, Ahmad b. `Ali b. Muhammad al `Asqalani, ibn Hajar, "Fath al Bari", 13 vols, Cairo, 1939/1348, volume 9, page 9)
Zuhri reports, 'We have heard that many Qur'an passages were revealed but that those who had memorized them fell in the Yemama fighting. Those passages had not been written down, and following the deaths of those who knew them, were no longer known; nor had Abu Bakr, nor `Umar nor `Uthman as yet collected the texts of the Qur'an.
“During the battle of Yamama, 450 reciters of the Quran were killed.” (The True Guidance, An Introduction To Quranic Studies, part 4 [Light of Life - P.O. BOX 13, A-9503 Villach, Austria], p. 47- citing Ibn Kathir’s Al-Bidaya wa al-Nibaya, chapter on Battle of Yamama).
As to the Taurat (Torah), Jewish scribes painstakingly copied it via a system of checking, double checking and adding each letter on each line. Any attempt to change something in the Torah would have resulted in immediate discovery and condemnation. And copies of the Torah from around the world agree exactly. Thousands of the Hebrew Old Testament manuscript copies are still available for textual criticism, ranging in age from the second century B.C. (Before Christ) to the eleventh century A.D. (After Christ).
There are no Arabic chronicles of Islam from the first century of Islam. Many of the earliest documents known about Islam refer to the followers of Muhammad as "hagarenes," and the "tribe of Ishmael," in other words as descendants of Hagar, the servant girl that the Jewish patriarch Abraham used to father his son Ishmael.
This same quality of transmission we find regarding the Jewish and Christian bible cannot be said of the Islamic Qur'an. The Islamic Qur'an was mostly written down from 3rd and 4th hand accounts; and from a few thoughts written on scrap papers, palm leaves and stones --and compiled over 150 years after Muhammad died in 632 A.D. In the Mishtatu ‘lMasabih, chapter 3, we are informed that by the command of the first Caliph, Abu Bakr, the text of the Qur’an was “collected” by Zaid ibn Thabit “from palm leaves and stones and from the breasts of those who had learned by heart” the various revelations." Abu Bakr’s copy came into the possession of Hafsah, one of Muhammad’s widows. Qustalani states that after Hafsah’s death her copy was torn to pieces by Mirwan, who was governor of Medina.
The oldest Qur'an dates from around 790 A.D. (after Jesus), and it is in the British Library. That's 158 years after Muhammad’s death. See corrupted Qur'an here .
Muslims often claim that the manuscript of the Qur'an housed in the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, Turkey is one of the oldest sources. Muslims say it dates from around 650 A.D. There is an insurmountable problem with this. This document is written in Kufic (also known as al-Khatt al-Kufi) script. Coins in the British Museum show that the first coins using the Kufic script date from the mid to end of the 8th century (750-800 A.D.). The only script used during and after Muhammad's days was the Jazm script. These earliest copies of the Qur'an are written without vowels and diacritical dots that modern Arabic uses to make it clear what letter is intended. In the eighth and ninth centuries, more than a century after the death of Muhammad, Islamic commentators added diacritical marks to clear up the ambiguities of the text.
The Samarkand (aka: Othman Koran) manuscript in the Soviet Library in Tashkent, Uzbekistan also uses the Kufic script, indicating late 8th century. Many believe it is the oldest in existence. Only About one-third of the original survives.
This Samarkand codice manuscript is considerably incomplete. It only begins in the middle of verse 7 of Suratul-Baqarah (the second Surah) and from there on numerous pages are missing. The next oldest Muslim manuscripts are also from the 8th-century. One is written in al-ma'il script and the other in Kufic. Neither of these correspond precisely to today's Qur'an. Also, in 1972, construction workers who were restoring the Great Mosque of Sana'a in Yemen found a cache of manuscripts scraps that differ and contradict today's Qur'an so badly, that Muslims try to hide this. These Yemeni Qur'an manuscripts date back to the 7th and 8th centures, and are actually the oldest found, and they are in Hijazi. Hijazi (Makkan or Madinan) script, is the script in which the earliest masahif of the Qur'an were written. These manuscripts calls to question whether the present Qur'an was delivered to Muslims in pristine form. Your guess is as good as mine as to who in addition to Muhammad made up the Qur'an.
Other than a few incorrect references to the patriarchs and Moses, the Qur’an is primarily centered on the period of time Muhammad himself lived in, including Muhammad's many military attacks on innocent caravans and Arabian villages. This seems to be hardly compatible with a holy revelation of God. Considering the complete absence of external and internal evidence that should effectively verify the revelatory character of the Qur'an, we find it very hard, if not impossible, to accept the Qur'an as a Message sent by God. This is particularly so, because the Qur'an contradicts earlier revelation, the evidence for the origin of which is given in Qur'an/Koran Suras below.
Ask a Muslim, by whom, and when were the Christian and Jewish Scriptures corrupted? You will get a blank stare. Muslims only know is that this lie has been "drilled" into them since childhood.
Even though their own prophet completely attested to the genuineness and authenticity of the Old and New Testaments, Islam makes the claim that they have been corrupted. Why? Because the Qur'an erroneously contradicts them both. And Islamic clerics know it. In Muslim cleric minds this also relieves them of Muhammad's statements such like:
Many Muslims Imams and Mullahs falsely point to Surah 2:140 to try and prove that Jews and Christians had corrupted their Scriptures. Referring to the Jews, this Surah says; "...who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah?...?" Yet, nowhere does this Surah state that the Jews and Christians corrupted their scriptures. Muslim clerics need to point to something because they know that the Jewish Torah and Christian Gospels badly contradict the Islamic Qur'an. The fact that Muhammad and Allah told Muslims to believe in the Torah and Christian Gospels is a very bad dilemma for these professionals who wish to continue making a good living in Islam.
Suras 6:34, 6:115, 10:64 and 50:28,29 clearly says to Muslims, "No change can there be in the words of Allah" and that Allah cannot alter (or abrogate) his words." So the Torah and Christian Gospels are correct, because Allah did verify this fact -- this clearly makes the Muslim Qur'an false; because it contradicts Allah.
As you can see from these verses below in the Qur'an (Koran), the Gospel of Jesus and the Jewish Torah are the divine Word of Allah, and Muhammad commanded the reading of the Holy Injil (Gospel of Jesus) and the Torah (Taurat) as part of Islam.

Today may be the time to free yourself from that tyrannical yoke of living in a false religion which came about to glue together a group of robbers, murderers and opportunists.
Your first step towards eternal salvation is no harder than to invite the only begotten Son of God into your heart as your Lord, Savior, and the one who has already paid for your sins Himself.
ON THE LORDSHIP / SONSHIP OF JESUS
Is it possible that the Muslim Qur'an is nothing more than an entire book of Satanic lies & verses that "tickle Arab ears"? Let's examine this closer.
Muhammad posed as an apostle of God. Yet his life is filled with lustfulness (12 marriages and sex with a child, slaves and concubines), rapes, warfare, conquests, and unmerciful butcheries. The infinitely good, just and all holy God of the Bible simply cannot tolerate anything in the least unjust or sinful. Yet He cared enough for us sinners to mercifully take our sins upon Himself. It is revealing that this "Allah", never tries to change Muhammad's sinfulness or life style.
Below is taken from "Islam Reviewed" by M. Ali:
Islam opposes the cardinal teachings of Christianity such as the sonship of Christ, the fatherhood of God and the death of Jesus Christ. Because of these opposing doctrinal views, the need to review Islam is critical to those who hunger for truth. The teachings on the person of Christ determine the genuineness or falsity of any religion. Without Christ, all religions could be right.
Attributing fatherhood to God is condemned vehemently by Allah in the Koran. In fact, it is regarded as blasphemy. Together with the many scientific, historical, and simple mathematical errors found in the Qur'an/Koran (see more on these errors below) which cannot be reconciled, this is chief among the reasons that Muslims believe the Bible texts have been corrupted. Muslims are of the opinion that Jesus never addressed Himself with any title of Sonship. This title is so repulsive to Allah that he even resorted to outright cursing in one of the suras in the Koran:
. . .The Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth. [In this] they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be upon them . . (Surat attaubah, 30).
If Allah is really the Rahman Rahim (i.e. the Beneficent, the Merciful) why doesn't he wish that the "blasphemous" Christians repent?
This Allah resorts to outright cursing? Yet in the Bible, God has to bear with Satan until the appointed time. Why can't Allah bear with Christians? At this point, one is forced to ask: who is this Allah that has to resort cursing those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God? Could he be the same God that spoke in the Bible? If the Bible and the Koran had the same author, would they not definitely speak the same thing?
It does not mean God married a wife and begat Jesus in the usual biological process, as the Koranic Allah declares. Jesus is the unique Son of God in a spiritual sense. Because of the marvelous love the Bible God has towards sinners, He came down to us in the person of Jesus Christ. He became known to us as God's Son and He came to save us from our sins.
"And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory" (1 Timothy 3:16).
Muslims cannot imagine God loving sinners to the extent of coming down personally, as the Son, to save them. To Muslims this is evidence of polytheism, because they are taught in the Koran that Allah does not love sinners (Surah 2:190). This is repeated twenty four times in the Koran for emphasis. That Allah does not love unbelievers (Surah 3:31) and that he has even blocked their ears, sealed their hearts and blindfolded their eyes (Surah 2:6-7). All these are in direct opposition to Bible teachings which instruct that:
"God commended His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us" (Roman 5:8)
The central theme of the Bible is this:
"For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16)
Are you a sinner? You know down in your heart that you are. You also know in your heart that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. But in spite of all your sins, the Bible God loves you and has made provision for your salvation through His perfect sacrifice, the shed blood of Jesus, His only Son.
The word Arabic "inni-mutawaffeeka" translated "I will take thee" is the point of controversy among scholars. Some hold that the word means death of sleep and God raised him in his sleep.
1 Others say the word means I, God, 'take you' from the world, but not by death.
2 Yet others claim it means God caused Jesus to die three hours and then raised him.
3 Muhammad Ibn Ishaq said, he was dead seven hours, then God raised him to life and took him to heaven. Dr. Anis Shorrosh says:
4 "As an Arab, I have never known of any other meaning than death for this expression, i.e. 'inni-mutawaffeeka', within or outside the Koran."
The controversy rages on in Surah 4, An-nisa, 157:
"That they said [in boast], We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of God; But they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no [certain] knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.
From this Surah comes the popular belief of Muslims that Allah cast the likeness of Jesus onto another man and that this man was the one crucified while Jesus was snatched into heaven. Muslims believe that the world was deceived into believing that it was Jesus that was crucified.
The Chief culprit in this deception is Allah himself. Whoever invented this clever fable actually did a good job for Islam, but not a thorough one. He fell short of identifying the Jesus substitute, thereby leaving room for more controversies.
Muslims deem it convenient to select Judas Iscariot since he was the one that betrayed Jesus. But that cannot be since Judas, after betraying Jesus, was overwhelmed with guilt and committed suicide (Matthew 27:3-5). And so Muslims must swim and eventually sink (unless they repent) in the ocean of dilemma into which Allah and Koran have immersed them.
Realizing the untenable nature of the ambiguous statement in Surah 4:157, some scholars are busy experimenting with more "suitable" theories. One such scholar is the aggressive sophist, Ahmed Deedat. In one of his specious arguments entitled Resurrection or Resuscitation?, Deedat propounded the "Swoon theory" as a theory that Jesus survived the cross half dead and recovered afterwards in a roomy grave.
The repeated denial of Jesus' death on the cross in Surah 4:157 not only exposes Allah's deception, but it also exposes his ignorance of prophetic tradition. The true God mentioned the triumph of Messiah (Jesus) over Satan through death when He gave the promise in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:15). The Prophet Isaiah predicted His (Jesus) virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14) and also His atoning death (Isaiah 53:5-9). The Prophet David, whom Muslims call Anabiya Dauda, also prophesied Jesus' death (Psalm 16:10), a prophecy which is confirmed in Acts 13:32-35.
If you are the kind of person who is skeptical of fulfilled prophecies, then consider one that will be fulfilled at Christ's second coming:
"And I will pour upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of Grace and supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced" (Zech 12:10; CF. Rev. 1:7).
An Allah who is ignorant of these prophecies cannot be a true God even if he claims to be one. As we see in Surat al-Maryam, 15: "So peace on him [refers to John] the day he was born, the day that he dies and the day that he will be raised up alive [again]!"
And verse 33 of the same sura:
"So peace is on me [Jesus] the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day I shall be raised up to life."
There is no arguing the fact that Muslims believe the Apostle John (Yahaya) was born and died according to the first verse. Then why not believe the same of Jesus the Christ according to the second verse?
Because the order of the two verses is the same and the wordings are practically the same. The context in the second can only mean one thing.
Yusuf Ali seems to realize this fact. 1 In comparing Surah 19:15 with Surah 19:33, he commented thus:
"Christ was not crucified (Surah 4:157) but those who believed He never died should ponder over this verse (i.e. 33 of Surat al-Maryam)".
Some do not want to believe the crucifixion on the ground that God would not have allowed His chosen prophet like Jesus to be killed by wicked hands. Such reasoning is refuted by the Koran itself.
They (also) said:
"God took our promise not to believe in an apostle unless he showed us a sacrifice consumed by fire [from heaven]. Say: 'there came to you apostles before me, with clear signs and even with what ye ask for: why then did ye slay them, if ye speak the truth?' " (Surah 3:183).
If we examine the whole Koran, we find that the only messenger who came from God with the kind of offering described in the above quoted Surah is Christ as can be seen in Surah 5:115-117.
The Apostle Paul, whom Muslims hate to hear, made an amazing remark concerning the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. A remark which makes a mockery of anyone trying to deny this historical event.
"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He arose again the third day according to the Scriptures: And that He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep" (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).
In essence, the Apostle Paul is saying this: if you are in doubt, go and ask the eyewitnesses. If the Muslims knew the importance of the cross in Gods program, they certainly would not have rejected it. Satan knows that he met his Waterloo through the death and resurrection of Jesus:
"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also Himself [Jesus] likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that hath the power of death, that is the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their life time subject to bondage" (Hebrews 2:14, 15).
This was the sole mission of Christ and He accomplished it, praise God. Contrary to Muslim allegations, neither Christ nor Paul established a religion. Religion is Satan's dragnet to catch men into Hell-fire, while Christ came purposely to conquer Satan and deliver as many as put their trust in Him. Does the Koran inform us of how Allah defeated Satan? No, on the contrary, Allah even incorporates Satan's cohorts (the jinns demons) into the Islamic fold (Surah 72:14), and concentrates on fighting against the Salvation plan of the Bible God.
Historic Note: In Jerusalem, on the ancient temple mount of God most Holy, Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan, in 688 AD, built the Dome of the Rock as a memorial to Muhammad. The Dome was erected just 300 feet south of where the Solomonic Temple once stood, and only a few hundred yards from where Jesus was crucified. Within the Dome is a prominent inscription in Arabic that reads: "God forbid that He should have a Son."
The Al Aqsa Mosque was constructed around A.D. 709 to serve as a shrine near another shrine, the Dome of the Rock, which was built by an Islamic caliph.
About 100 years ago, Al Aqsa in Jerusalem (Yerushalayim in Hebrew and al-Quds in Arabic) became associated with the place Muslims came to believe Muhammad ascended to heaven. Jerusalem, however, is not mentioned in the Quran. Jerusalem was NEVER mentioned at all - at any time as a holy place in the Muslim Qur'an. This Palestinian obsession with Jerusalem only came later in the 20th century - when Muslims decided to use it to convince the gullible in the United Nations - and liberals in America and in the West that Jerusalem was somehow holy to Muslims. In all History it never was.
According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad took a journey in a single night from "a sacred mosque" – believed to be in Mecca in southern Saudi Arabia – to "the farthest mosque," and from a rock there ascended to heaven to receive revelations from Allah that became part of the Quran. There was nothing on the Temple Mount during Muhammad's life time. So how could the Jewish temple site be their "farthest mosque"? Muhammad died in 632 A.D.
Palestinians today claim exclusivity over the Temple Mount and Palestinian leaders routinely deny Jewish historic connection to the site, yet historically, Muslims never claimed the al Aqsa Mosque as their "third holiest site" and always recognized the existence of the Jewish Temples.
According to research by Israeli author Shmuel Berkovits, Islam previously disregarded Jerusalem. He points out in his book "How Dreadful Is this Place!" that Muhammad was said to loathe Jerusalem and what it stood for.
ISLAM, LIKE SATAN - WANTS ONLY SLAVES....
Most Muslims do not realize that Islam allows no freedom. This alone should make them realize that it is Satan behind Islam, and not an eternal God. Satan wishes only to enslave Muslims to help him enslave the entire world. He does this by turning them away from the truth -- that salvation is yours already, if you only have faith in God's Son, Jesus. Islam is a religion based on intimidation and fear. The word "Islam" does not mean "peace." Muslims who tell you that the word “Islam” means “peace” are lying to you. The word "Islam" is an Arabic word. The word for peace in Arabic is “solh,” and not Islam. Islam is derived from the root word “taslim,” which means submission or surrender. A Muslim is not allowed to leave Islam or else risk his or her life. At birth, a person is branded either Muslim or non-Muslim depending on one's descent.
Among other things, the religion of Islam is a brain-washing religion, and that is why so many Muslims turn into crazy mindless zombies. The Muslims are required to pray 5 times a day in Arabic to a God who is not there, from the moment they embrace Islam; and when they do so they touch their head to the floor. That is one reason they get so brain-washed, this repetitive prayer. You can often spot fanatical Muslims by the marks on their foreheads resulting from this repetitive touching their head to the floor, where they may whack their head if they really get into it. As an example, take a look at the below image (and all others released) of Osama's Al Qaida second in command, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, who always gives an anti-U.S. rant; Dr. Ayman has this tell-tale bruise on his forehead from too much head-whacking.
If you are a Muslim, and not praying the mandatory 5 times a day (in Arabic), which must be preceded by the ritual washing/ablution (Wudu) , according to Muhammad you are in great danger of going to hell. Muslims may be excused from observing the other pillars of Islam like fasting, almsgiving, pilgrimage to Mecca. But, no Muslim is ever excused from mandatory 5 times a day prayer. In Christianity there is no compulsion or mandatory prayer. The Lord God has given Christians free will. Christians know they are to honor God every day, and not just on a Sunday. Muslims should count their "blessings". During Muhammad's fanciful mystical Night Journey to Heaven, Muhammad said that he was originally told by Allah to command his followers to pray fifty times daily, but later Allah revealed this to be too much of a burden. What Muhammad probably meant was he soon found out that even he couldn't keep up with fifty mandatory prayer sessions a day. So like many Sura's you'll see below, miraculously a Surah appeared to help Muhammad out in his personal life.
In Christianity, there is no such compulsion. Yahweh wants heartfelt prayers. Not scripted prayers. Christians know enough to speak with God as their "Abba" (literally - daddy in Aramaic). Muslims typically never even think of one-on-one, two-way prayers to God. Muslim prayers resemble a "broadcast"; and no reply from their Allah is usually ever expected.
Jesus told us: "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen (pagans) do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." Matthew 6:7 - 8
Another example of this mindless zombie behavior you see in Muslims is the Shiite Muslim "holiday" of Ashoura, commemorating the death of Muhammad's grandson Husayn. Some Shiite Muslims stab themselves in the head on this "holiday", making a cut on their heads and beating the wound so it keeps bleeding. And the "bleeders" then walk around in groups yelling. And the cruelest and worst practice of Muslims is their practice of genital cutting (aka: FGC, Female Genital Cutting), genital mutilation, of young girls in Muslim countries. It has been estimated that approximately 2 million infants, young girls, and women are subjected to this painful and needless practice each year worldwide. FGC is typically done without anesthesia or antibiotics.
Islamic law encourages Muslims to proselytize (convert others). Islam, however, clearly forbids others to proselytize to Muslims. This is because hearing the truth as revealed in the Christian Bible would weaken this false path to God (Islam).
BUT, WHAT ABOUT THE CRUSADES - YOU MAY BE ASKING:
Every Christian who participated in the Crusades, did so, against the teachings of Jesus.
However, in retrospect, the Crusades probably allowed the western world a thousand years of freedom from the diabolical Islamic religion. The Crusaders stopped the expansion of the Islamic empire. This allowed Christianity to prosper in Europe which preserved the gospel for the rest of the world to receive.
The Crusades were a reaction to the Muslim crusades against the entire world.
In the 7th century, the Muslims took control of Jerusalem, and in the 11th century they began to hassle, kill, molest Christian pilgrims in the Jerusalem area. The Muslim Turks even attacked Rome and Belgrade in 1456 A.D. The Crusades were also in response to the cries of help from the eastern Byzantine Empire, which was very worried about the military threat to it from the Seljuk Turks. So if the Christians did not respond, the Muslims would have conquered all of Europe and wiped out Christianity from the planet. Did this have any significance to Osama bin Laden's sick mind? The Muslim high point in Europe ended when they were turned back from Vienna on September 11, 1683 A.D.
In AD 1009, Kalif Hakem of Egypt ordered the destruction of the Holy Sepulcher and all Christian places of worship in Jerusalem. Christians were persecuted cruelly and pilgrims were attacked.
Here is a speech from Pope Urban II to Christians from this Crusader era:
SPAIN UNDER THE MOORS
Neither was Spain under the Muslim Moors the jewel of Islamic tolerance that it is often purported to be. In 920 A.D. all the inhabitants of Muez were put to the sword. Cordova, Zarajoza and Merida were burned to the ground, with all adult males executed and all women and children enslaved. In AD 1066 all the Jews of Grenada were slaughtered. In AD 1126, all the Christians of Grenada were deported to Morocco.
CARNAGE IN CONSTANTINOPLE
Under Mehmet II the Turks conquered the great Byzantine capital, Constantinople. On 29 May, 1453 A.D., waves of Turkish soldiers swept into Constantinople, the greatest city in the world at that time, and put it to the sword. Priceless libraries and irreplaceable works of art were burned, the population slaughtered, even in the Hagia Sophia, the greatest Christian church in the world at that time.
For centuries the Turks demanded an annual “blood levy” of Christian boys. Parents were forced to hand over one out of every five Christian boys for service in the Sultan’s army as janissaries.
In 1860 over 12,000 Christians were slaughtered in Lebanon. In 1876 14,700 Bulgarians were murdered by the Turks. 200,000 Armenian Christians were slaughtered by the Turks in Bayazid in 1877. And in 1915 the Turks massacred over 1.5 million Armenian Christians. As recently as September 1922 the Turkish army destroyed the ancient city of Smyrna with its 300,000 Christian population.
About Muhammad himself:
Much is known about the life of Muhammad. In 1851, the French scholar Ernest Renan wrote that Muhammad lived "in the full light of history." Muhammad's first biographer was Muhammad Ibn Ishag (704-773 A.D.) who wrote "Sirat Rasul Allah", a work which has not survived. No finished biography of Muhammad appeared until 150 years after his death in Arabia.
According to tradition, Muhammad was born in Mecca on April 20, 570 A.D. Shi'ites say he was born on April 26th. His full name was Muhammad Bin-Abdullah. At the time Muhammad was born Muhammad's father was the chief of the pagan worshipping tribe of Koreish. Muhammad's father was ‘Abd Allāh ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, of the family of Hashim (Shaiba ibn Hashim). ‘Abd Allāh" means "slave of Allah". His father died soon after his son's birth--while he was out on a trading expedition. His father was the youngest son of Abdul Muttalib and the great-grandson of Kussai. Muhammad was orphaned early in his life after his mother Amina died and was raised by his grandfather Abdul Muttalib, then chief of the Quraysh (Koreish) tribe, and his uncle Abu-Talib beginning at age 6. Earlier, at about 5 years old while in the care of a Bedouin nurse named Halima Muhammad became subject to epileptic fits. The branch of the Quraysh tribe Muhammad belonged to was known as the Beni Hashem.
At the age of nine the boy Muhammad mounted a camel and went on a merchandising expedition into Syria. It was while with his grandfather and uncle that Muhammad learned learned to be lordly, and to exercise power, to fast, and to pray at certain specified times of the day. The Quraysh tribe prayed to idols at sunrise, noon, and at sunset; and they faced the direction of the idol black stone and the Kaaba.
While away from Arabia he saw the sacred places of the Jews. He stood on the spot where the King of Salem came out and did obeisance to Abraham. He was shown the place where his great mother, the bondwoman Hagar, went forth leading Ishmael by the hand. He saw Damascus, city of the desert, and Sinai, the mountain of the law. Then he returned to Mecca full of visions and dreams. His teen years were as a shepherd and an attendant of caravans.
At the age of 20 Muhammad was hired by a wealthy woman named Khadija (or Khadeejah) to manage her late husband's caravan business. When Muhammad was 25 he married Khadija; six children were born to them, but only one survived to adulthood; his beloved daughter Fatima. While in the caravan business Muhammad happened to make many journeys to Syria and Palestine. During this time Muhammad became acquainted with both Jews and Christians. Later, the monk-like Muhammad would cause things to be written in the Koran about both Jewish and Christian history, which shows that Muhammad did not possess an intellect befitting a historian. It has also been thought that Muhammad could not read or write. In fact, the Qur'an says Muhammad was illiterate (Ummi) in Surah 7:157. These Qur'an (Koran) entries you will see below are marred with gross errors and inattention to detail. This marriage to the much older Khadija, who was then 40 years old and who already had been married twice proved very fortunate to Muhammad. Muhammad suddenly became equal to the richest men in Mecca. While married to Khadija Muhammad did not marry any other wife. However, after she died, Muhammad would show no restraint in his self gratification for lust with multiple wives, slaves, captives, and even his own adoptive son Zaid's wife. Khadija gave Muhammad two sons, both of whom died young. They both also had 4 daughters together. Their names were Rockeya, Kolthum, Zeinale, and Fatima. In his older age, Muhammad used to color his hair red to hide his gray hair. He is said to have had a large hairy egg sized mole under his left shoulder. Not being able to find any prophecy of Muhammad's coming in the Bible - many foolish Arabs have tried to 'tie' this hairy mole into Isaiah 9, where it is written, "the government shall be upon his shoulder".
Greatest False Teachings in the Qur'an:
- The New Testament repeatedly declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He was crucified and resurrected to both pay for our sins and to make possible our salvation, but the Qur'an expressly denies all these things. The Qur'an says Jesus was not crucified. (Surah 4:157-158). The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ as an atonement for our sins was a stumbling block to Muhammad. Muhammad said that only one in his likeness was crucified. This clearly contradicts all 4 Gospels (Injil) which Muhammad confirmed in the as the revealed word of God in the Qur'an itself.
Islam is actually guilty of upholding the cause of Satan himself, who argued from the very beginning that man is entitled to disregard the known will of God as Satan had done. Satan lies that man could disregard God's will without incurring the penalty of death. But God cared enough about our sinful guilty human race to endure our punishment for us Himself, in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, whose perfect atoning sacrifice saved every repentant, believing sinner. To think that one can have eternal Life without someone like Jesus "paying our price" for our sin is to mistakenly believe that God can righteously forgive without requiring any atonement at all. This makes God Himself a protector of sin rather than its avenger.
If you accept Islam, you forever reject Jesus and His substitut suffering and death for your sins on the cross. It is a decision that will effect where you spend eternity.
The New Testament was written by people who walked with Jesus. Muhammad only heard about Jesus (called Isa in the Qur'an) over five centuries later, and even what he heard he seems to have gotten confused.
Jesus was not merely a Prophet
Christians need to remember, Jesus Christ warned us that if you deny Him, He will deny you before the Father. Muslims falsely believe they have "this base" covered because they show reverence to Jesus as a "great Prophet" only.
Surah 3.45: When the angels said: O Marium, surely Allah gives you good news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the '. Messiah, Isa (Jesus) son of Marium, worthy of regard in this world and the hereafter and of those who are made near (to Allah).
You "deny" Jesus when you do not follow His teachings, such as He is the only way to the Father and salvation. You deny Jesus when you do not make Him the center of your life. Jesus of Nazareth is the Jewish Messiah foretold thousands of years before His arrival (see here) by numerous Prophets of God. Jesus led a sinless life. And only Jesus, the Son of the Father is the awaited Christ and mediator between you and the Father.

Islamic Satanic Lies
Islam is built on subtle lies which have been concocted by evil men in order to maintain cohesion and discipline within their robber band. Islam is the only religion that says that Jesus did not die on the cross. Islam denies this historical fact about Jesus which therefore negates the salvation given us by the Son of God's painful death and miraculous resurrection from the dead. Even the Jewish Sanhedrin (High Religious Court) in Jerusalem admits Jesus died there. In addition to the writers of the 4-Gospels and Josephus, the Jewish 1st century historian (See Antiquities 18-63) -- the Jewish Babylonian Talmud (Sanhedrin 43a) from the Tannaitic Period recorded: "On the eve of the Passover Yeshu [the Nazarene] was hanged".... This means on a wooden cross.
The Miracle Surrounding the Death of Jesus
Also, A pagan historian by the name of Thallus, who lived shortly after the resurrection of Christ (about A.D. 52) wrote concerning a miraculous darkness that covered the earth at the Passover of A.D. 32 and attempted to explain it as an eclipse of the sun.
Islam claims to be a religion of the people of "The Book", or Ahel al-Kitab, which would have one believe it is a continuance of that Book God revealed to His Jewish Prophets. If it were, it would not deny what is in that "Book", especially after confirming the authority of the Jewish Torah and Christian Gospels. If Islam was true, Muslims would know the name of the true God is not Allah, but Yahweh. See more about Mohammed found in the Bible Codes here. These matrixes say: "Mohammed Profanes My Holy Name" and "Mohammed, Blaspheming, Demon".
Words of Jesus Himself:
Muslims do deny Jesus is the Christ
Christians were told in the Bible to be on-guard and that the Antichrist will not only just be a man who appears shortly before the Lord Jesus returns, but also a movement (Islam) which denies that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God. Islam is adamant in its denial of the deity of Jesus.
It is easy to overlook, but followers of Islam place their eternal salvation entirely on the whimsical sayings of only one single man - the imperfect and violent man Muhammad.
Christianity and Judaism is heavily corroborated by many different prophets and apostles of God. Additionally, Christianity and Judaism abound with many, many miracles, all witnessed by throngs of people. Physical evidence such as 5,300 original manuscripts confirming the New Testament (Injeel) are still here to read.
The fact of the matter is; not one individual or document can corroborate Muhammad's testimony.
As prophecies go, Muhammad simply made none!
Muhammad made only 1 very vague utterance (guess) that wishfully might be considered a prophecy. This was when he said that in a few years the Romans would win a battle. No time or place was even given. As to any signs that Muhammad was divinely inspired, Muhammad admitted twice he could do no miracles.
An Apostle of God must prove his mission by working miracles.
All God's prophets (Muhammad did not) did miracles to prove they were speaking for God. God would have it no other way.
The life of Jesus on earth abounded with astounding miracles. The Qur'an itself declares in Surah 5:110 that Jesus performed miracles. Forget what's in the made up Hadiths; the Qur'an itself admits twice that Muhammad said he could do no miracles (Suras 13:7 and Surah 17:90-94 ). Jesus makes it quite clear that miracles are necessary to prove what one speaks is of divine origin. Jesus said; "If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father." (John 15:24). Jesus made the deaf hear, the lame walk, the blind see, the dumb speak. He multiplied 5 loaves of bread to feed 5000 people, and he cured lepers and many other diseased people, and raised the dead with his word only. One woman was cured by just touching Jesus' garment. Jesus walked on water, caste out demon spirits, raised his own self from the dead, and finally rose to heaven in front of many witnesses. The ability to confirm one's oral proclamation with supernatural acts is what sets the genuine apart from the counterfeit (The Quran Unveiled, page 216).
The so-called "Prophet" of Islam lived an extremely sinful life of raping, plundering and murdering for profit. His entire purpose for the Qur'an (Koran) was simply to increase his personal self esteem, attain superior status, and for maintaining discipline and cohesion within his robber band. An Apostle of God must be a good and righteous man as Jesus was and Muhammad was not.
Muhammad's inability to perform even a single miracle to prove his connection with divinity forced him to establish his own credibility in the Qur'an, by numerous threats to obey him, and so-called revelations calling on Muslims to venerate him. 201 times in the Qur'an Muhammad had the need to make sure everyone knows that he is "Allah's Messenger". Typical of Muhammad's threats in the Qur'an is this in Surah 33:57: "Those who annoy Allah and His Apostle - Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment."
Note: John the Baptist's main role was not as a prophet, but as a forerunner.
Muhammad had a diabolical aversion to the form of the cross.
Symptomatic of the state of Muhammad's soul during his lifetime is the strikingly similar behavior regarding the cross that demons have demonstrated over and over.
According to Al Waqidi, Muhammad would break everything brought into the house with a shape of the cross on it. Additionally, Ahmad ibn Hanbal (A.D. 855) said that Muhammad would foam at the mouth during prayer. Christians should immediately remember the Apostle Mark's telling of Jesus casting a demon out of a boy who was possessed. This demon-possessed boy also showed this symptom of "foaming at the mouth".
More than eight hundred million human beings confess Islam, the religion Muhammad founded. There is no more militant movement on earth equal to Islam. No religion teaches hatred more than Islam. Jesus said; "many false prophets will rise up and deceive man." Islam has managed to turn billions of people away from the true Word of God, and not merely by its distraction of the truth. But also by its outright denial of the truth.
Jesus Never Spoke of Another true Prophet to Follow Him
Islam vainly tries to gain legitimacy over other, older religions, by creating a scene in which the former prophets agree to Mohammad's mastery.
Muslims often deliberately claim that Jesus spoke of Muhammad as that prophet who would follow him, or that Muhammad was the "Comforter" Jesus promised would come. The references Muslims vainly cling to about this are mentions of a comforter to follow Jesus in John chapters 14, 15, and 16. Both of these are more Islamic lies. Jesus did warn us that false prophets (Muhammad) with false Gospels (Qur'an) would follow Him, and try to deceive many.
The Comforter Jesus spoke of was the Holy Spirit who filled the Apostles while they gathered together on Pentecost. While gathered together they all began speaking in foreign tongues. The Comforter/Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh also imparted the ways of God on Mary, the Apostles of Jesus, and about 120 other Disciples that day. Three thousand came into the Church that same day. Jesus' followers then immediately took Him seriously and they went out and began preaching the Gospel. The Comforter was NOT Muhammad. In John 14:26 the comforter is specifically identified as the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in the name of Jesus Christ. There is no mention of any Allah, Muhammad, or any prophet to follow Jesus in any Christian or Jewish Holy Books.Jesus told us, there would only be one more revelation of truth that would come after Him. John 14:17, 16:7 & 13 tell us that Jesus said a "Spirit of Truth" (not a man - a Spirit), the Comforter would come after He Himself departed. This Comforter was to guide us "into all truth". So there would then be no truth remaining which would be sealed or hidden. Christians know this "Comforter" as the third person of the triune God, or the "Holy Spirit".
100% Accuracy is Expected from the True God
The Koran is without a doubt filled with many serious scientific, historical and theological errors. The Islamic Koran (Qur'an), unlike the Judeo-Christian Bible is written in a style that is deliberately misleading. The only joy Muslims find in reading of the Qur'an is that of its poetry and that they believe that it came from God. Nothing in the Qur'an will either save you from your sins or point you to eternal life.
The Koran is written in an esoteric, mysterious and vague style. Its rhythmic prose and the jingling sounds of the words give great delight to Arab ears. It is also written in a incorrect, arbitrary and haphazard order, as if the uninspired human - Muhammad died before putting it together correctly. In addition to countless repetitions and redundant exclamations, the Qur'an meanders from one idea to another, without any real connection between them. It reads as if a lot of uninspired, uneducated men were renting their rage on many things. The only book I know of that exceeds the Koran in deliberate tediousness, false claims, and incoherence is the Book of Mormon. It is quite obvious to any reader of the Qur'an that Muhammad had not a clue of the role in God's plan for salvation that the Jewish Messiah (Jesus) was to play.
The Qur'an is one man's ticket from mediocrity:
Once begun, the Qur'an took on a "life" of its own, because Muhammad saw how it magnified himself to a powerful position in front of his band of murderous robber followers. The Qur'an is also one uneducated man's (Muhammad) feeble attempt to piece together Christian and Jewish theology. Throwing about pieces of his limited knowledge of what he learned about the Christian and Jewish religions provided Muhammad a way to elevate himself further in front of his listeners. Ample evidence suggests that before Muhammad began raping, murdering and pillaging for profit, he was viewed as a lunatic, especially by Jews, Christians, Medina and Mecca Arabs, and Hindus. The Jews professed disgust at a prophet whose chief concern was his harem of many wives. The majority of Jews, however, suffered Muhammad's wrath when they refused to join his terrorist band of Muslims - mainly because the Jews could not reconcile their fundamental belief which is backed up in Scripture. That is, that God would never send a prophet who was a descendent of Ishmael instead of one from the line of Isaac. God had already made His choice to make a covenant with Isaac and his people.
During his early 13 years of preaching his message in Mecca, Muhammad was not driven toward violence. He was also in fact tolerant and cooperative; even in the face of boycotts by the Meccans against him and his new converts. After Muhammad moved to Medina, however, Muhammad turned into a violent, cruel, lustful and intolerant man, who personally led raids on innocent caravans. Beginning in Medina, Muhammad spread Islam militarily. Muhammad accompanied his terrorist army on 27 raids . Muhammad, the warrior non-prophet who made no prophecies, fought himself in 9 of these raids: Badr, al-Mustaliq, Hunayn, Uhud, al-Khandaq, Qurayza, Khaybar, al-Ta'if, and the occupation.
Muhammad's early attempts to unite with Christians and Jews were not successful
Because Muhammad thought the "People of the Book" (Jews & Christians) also claimed allegiance to this same God he invented, Muhammad's early recitations about Christianity and Judaism in the Qur'an were irenic (Tending to promote peace; conciliatory):
"O believers, be you God's helpers, as Jesus, Mary's son, said to the Apostles. 'Who will be my helpers unto God?' The Apostles said, 'We will be helpers of God' " (Surah 61:14).
When Muhammad started preaching his new religion in Mecca he was conciliatory and appeasing to Christians. He told them: "We believe in What has been sent down to us and sent down to you, our God is the same as your God." Surah 29:46. And in Surah 2:62 it says; "Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve. "
Christians and Jews in Muhammad's time treated Muhammad as a False Prophet:
Later, as Christians and Jews treated this self proclaimed prophet with sustain, recitations regarding the "People of the Book" (both Jews and Christians) became more belligerent:
Compare this with what happened later, in Medina, after Muhammad gained strength and Christians refused to follow Muhammad's Allah. Allah then tells him to "Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day...Nor acknowledge the religion of truth (Islam), (even if they are) of the people of the Book, until they pay Jizya (tribute tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued". Surah 9:29
"And the Jews say: Uzair (possibly Ezra) is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; " (Surah 9:30); and
(The difficulty with Surah 9:30 above is with Uzair/Ezra, is the fact that no historical evidence can be adduced to prove that any Jewish sect, however heterodox, ever subscribed to such a tenet. What grounds were there for the accusation? It is probably a figment of Mohammed's own imagination.)
"O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." (Surah 5:51).
Are the following words what one might expect to hear from an all-knowing, benevolent deity? Or, are they the words one might expect from an Arab terrorist who needs to discipline his marauding troops today - and even in the 7th century (Muhammad)?
- Surah 5.38 "And (as for) the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands as a punishment for what they have earned, an exemplary punishment from Allah; and Allah is Mighty, Wise."
In his book, "Islam and Terrorism", the former professor of Islamic history at Al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt (pen name: Mark A. Gabriel, PHD) says on Page 5-6: "Even the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, practiced his faith in many ways that contradicted the Quran. The Quran said that Muhammad was sent to show the mercy of God to the world. But he became a military dictator, attacking, killing and taking plunder to finance his empire. How is that showing mercy? Mark further writes: Allah, the god revealed in the Quran, is not a loving father. It says that he desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39, 126; 43:36-37). He does not help those who are led astray by him (Surah 30:29) and desires to use them to populate hell (Surah 32:13)". So, the Qur'an says that the god of Islam works with Satan and demons to lead people astray.
Jesus is the "Good Shepherd", and the God of love - who does not lead people astray.
The true Word of God needs to be infallible!
The Jewish and Christian Bible has been scrutinized and acknowledged to be without error by leading evangelical scholars over the centuries - as one would expect an inspired book from God to be.
The Koran was written 500 years after the Christian Bible was completed. If it too is truly an inspired book from God, it too should measure up to be as infallible as the Jewish and Christian Bible. If you expect the Koran to be as internally consistent and as factually correct as the Jewish and Christian Bible is - you are wrong. A few examples follow:
The Islamic Qur'an was edited
Today the Islamic Qur'an (Koran) is made up of 114 chapters called Suras and then sub-divided into verses. In the days of Muhammad's wife A'isha, one chapter of the Koran (the Sura) had about 200 verses. Shortly after her death, this Surah had only 73 verses. Muslims say that 127 verses of the original text were lost and never found. Also, After the sudden death of Muhammad, Zaid-ibn-Thabith was ordered to compile and write down the Qur'an (Mishkat'ul Masabih). It is attested that at least three revelations were left out. One of these, according to Muhammad's wife, A'isha, with whom he resided at this death, was kept under their bed at the time of Muhammad's death, but was eaten by a domestic animal (a goat). When Uthman compiled the Qur'an, the missing verses could not be found. One of them was called the verse of Stoning, and is said to have containestoned the order to stone a man or woman who had committed adultery....This verse is said to have been part of the original Qur'an. Many early authorities say so, and what is very significant is that the first Caliphs punished adulterers by stoning; this is still the penalty prescribed in Muslim law-books, whereas the Qur'an (Surah 24:2) prescribed a hundred stripes." ("Islam" by A. Guillaume, p. 191). References: Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal. vol. 6. page 269; Sunan Ibn Majah, page 626; Ibn Qutbah, Tawil Mukhtalafi 'l-Hadith (Cairo: Maktaba al-Kulliyat al-Azhariyya. 1966) page 310; As-Suyuti, ad-Durru 'l-Manthur, vol. 2. page 13:
Another tradition states (Sahih Muslim, page 912, Mishkat II, page 534 and others):
"Umar said: 'Verily Allah sent Muhammad with truth and revealed the Book to him. Out of the verses, the Almighty Allah revealed. there was the verse of stoning to death. The Messenger of Allah stoned to death (Sahih Muslim, page 920) and after him we also stoned to death: And in the BOOK OF GOD stoning to death is a truth against one, who commits adultery. The verse was thus: 'The old man and the old woman, if they have committed adultery, they stoned them both assuredly.' "
This passage too, is not in the Qur'an. See other corruptions of the Qur'an here.
Ayatollah Khomeini, an Iranian "butcher" gives us a clear insight into what awaits countries who fall to Islam's satanic grasp:
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini explains what happens when these murderous mullah's take over:
According to Khomeini:
"Killing is a form of mercy because it rectifies the person. Sometimes a person cannot be reformed unless he is cut up and burned. You must kill, burn and lock up those in opposition."
This shows how Muhammad made it up as he went along:
"The canonical traditionists report that Surah 4:95 was dictated by Muhammad to his amanuensis Zayd (Zaid) thus: 'Those believers who sit at home are not equal to those who fight in the way of God with their goods and their persons.' A blind man was present and heard the words. He immediately interjected that were he as other men he would certainly fight; whereupon Muhammad interposed the words 'except those who suffer from a grave impediment' which stand in the text today." ("Islam" by A. Guillaume, p.191).
Before an authorized version of the Qur'an (Koran) was established under the Caliph Uthman there were four rival editions in use. These have long since disappeared, but we are told that they differed from the authorized version, some containing more and some less than the latter.
When men who had learned one version came into conflict with those who possessed a rival version it was feared that scriptural exegesis (i.e. critical explanation or analysis) would pursue the course it had taken among Jews and Christians who at that time accused one another of corrupting and falsifying the sacred text. Uthman then entrusted a commission, in which Zayd took a prominent place, with the task of preparing a text which everyone must accept. Only the men of Kufa refused the new edition, and their version was certainly extant as late as A.D. 1000. Uthman's edition to this day remains the authoritative word of their God to Muslims. The Uthman collection tradition poses a difficult question: which Qur'an tradition is the more authentic, 1. the Hijazi tradition represented in the universally acknowledged text; 2. the Kufan tradition claiming descent from Abdullah ibn Mas'ud; 3. the Basran stemming from Abu Musa; or 4. the Syrian from Ubayy ibn Ka'b one of the scribes of Muhammad (or from Miqdad/? Mu'ad)?
Differing readings of the Qur'an were known to Muhammad and he lacked the pedantry to object. More fickleness -- more making it up as he went along.
"Ubayy entered the mosque and, hearing a man recite, asked him who had instructed him. The man replied that he had been taught by the Prophet. Ubayy went in search of the Prophet. When the man recited. Muhammad said, 'That is correct.' Ubayy protested, 'But you taught me to recite so-and-so,' The Prophet said that Ubayy was right too. 'Right? right?' burst out Ubayy in perplexity. The Prophet struck him on the chest and prayed, 'O God! cause doubt to depart.' Ubayy broke into a sweat as his heart filled with terror. Muhammad disclosed that two angels had come to him. One said, 'Recite the Qur'an in one form.' The other advised Muhammad to ask for more than this. That was repeated several times until finally the first angel said. 'Very well. Recite it in seven forms.' The Prophet said, 'Each of the forms is grace-giving, protecting, so long as you don't terminate a punishment verse with an expression of mercy, or vice-versa - as you might for example say, Let's go; or, let's be off.' " (Tafsir of Tabari.).
"A man complained to the Prophet, Abdullah taught me to recite a Surah of the Qur'an. Zaid taught me the same Surah and so too did Ubayy. The readings of all three differ. Whose reading ought I to adopt?' Muhammad remained silent. Ali who was at his side replied, 'Every man should recite as he was taught. Each of the readings is acceptable, valid.' " (Tafsir of Tabari).
"Umar said, I heard Hisam b. Hukaim reciting Surat al Furqan and listened to his recital. On observing that he was reading many forms which the Prophet had not taught me, I all but rushed upon him as he prayed. But I waited patiently as he continued, and, collaring him when he had finished, I asked him, 'Who taught you to recite this Sura?' He claimed that the Prophet had taught him. I said, 'By God! you're lying!' I dragged him to the Prophet telling him that I had heard Hisam recite many forms he had not taught me. The Prophet said, 'Let him go. Recite, Hisam.' He recited the reading I had already heard from him. The Prophet said, 'That is how it was revealed.' He then said, 'Recite, Umar', and I recited what he had taught me. He said, 'That's right. That is how it was revealed. This Qur'an was revealed in seven forms, so recite what is easiest.' "(Tafsir of Tabari). (See also Mishkat vol.III pp. 702-705). Also, Al Baizawi (in his commentary on Suras 3:100, 6:91, 19:35, 28:48, 33:6, 34:18, 38:22, etc.) suggests variations extant in his time. (Mizanu'l Haqq, page 261).
Scientific blunders in the Qur'an (Koran):
The Qur'an claims to be free from internal discrepancies. "Will they not then ponder on the Qur'an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity." (Noble Qur'an Surah 4:82) Surely, nothing less than perfect is expected from God. But, let's go on a journey through the Qur'an and peek at the evidence against this claim.
Islamic scholars in Egypt and Saudi Arabia agree with Muhammad, that lightning and thunder are two angels. Muhammad, the prophet of Muslims, claims that the thunder and the lightning are two of God’s angels—exactly like Gabriel! Baydawi comments on verse 13 of the chapter of the Thunder in the Qur'an:
The Qur'an teaches that the world is flat. This doctrine is believed by a great many Islamic scholars even today. The Jewish/Christian Bible revealed that the earth is round in Isaiah 40:22 and via Job (26:7). Speaking of God in Isaiah 40:22, the Jewish/Christian Bible says; "It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. Funny isn't it, that the Bible said the earth was a "circle", even when everyone believed the earth was flat". Job 26:7 says, "He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing".
- In many places, the Qur'an alludes to the fact that the earth is flat and its mountains are like poles which create a balance so that the Earth does not tilt. See Qur'an, Suras 79:30 (And the Earth after that He(Allah) FLATTENED it.; and 18:47 (and you will see the earth a leveled plain).
With regards to Surah 79:30, " Dahaahaa " does NOT mean " shape like an egg ". It is appalling that some dishonest Muslim apologists actually have the audacity to dishonestly cheat non-Arabic speakers to such an extent. So if concisely translated, Surah 79:30 should read as “And the Earth after that He (Allah) Spread out like a carpet and Flattened it.”
The Arabic word for egg is " Baidah " and NOT " Dahiyah " . There is NO such Arabic word as " Dahiyah ". " "Dahaahaa " actually means " FLATTEN ". And the concise meaning of “Dahaahaa” is “Spread out like a carpet and Flattened”. This points to a clear scientific error in the Quran. The word “Dahiyah” is a word that comes from one of the NON-Arab tribes of North Africa. It is definitely NOT an Arabic word and NOT a word that comes from the Arabian Peninsula or Muhammad’s tribe.
Surah 10:5 says
Huwa Al-Ladhī Ja`ala Ash-Shamsa Điyā'an Wa Al-Qamara NURon Wa Qaddarahu Manāzila Lita`lamū `Adada As-Sinīna Wa Al-Ĥisāba Mā Khalaqa Allāhu Dhālika 'Illā Bil-Ĥaqqi Yufaşşilu Al-'Āyāti Liqawmin Ya`lamūna which means "It is He Who made the sun to be a shining brightness and THE MOON TO BE A LIGHT, and measured out stages for her; that you might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did Allah create this but in truth. (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand."
The Arabic word “Qamara” means “Moon” and “NUR” means “LIGHT”. “Al-Qamara” means “The Moon”. Surah 10:5 CLEARLY says ALLAH MADE THE MOON A LIGHT.
The word “NUR” means “Light” and it does NOT AT ALL mean “reflected light”. Anyone who knows Arabic knows that. If it does, then in the Arabic text of Surah 24:35, Allah is himself a reflected light ! Is any muslim apologist willing to accept such an insult, degradation and blasphemy to Allah ?? Also, if as according to the LIES of muslim apologists, “NUR” means “reflected light” which it does NOT, then in the Arabic text, Surahs 2:257, 4:174, 5:16, 5:46, 6:1, 6:122, 7:157, 9:32, 33:43, 33:46, 35:25, 42:52, 57:9, 61:8, 64:8 make absolutely no sense at all and make the already absurd Qur'an even more absurd, ridiculous and erroneous.
Surah 10:5 is a clear scientific MISTAKE in the light of modern science. The moon is NOT a light and does NOT give out its own light ! The moon reflects light from the sun. Of course, the Qur'an does not mention this at all because Muhammad did not know this.
- The Qur'an teaches that the sun sets into a Muddy Spring on earth. According to Surah 18:86, the sun literally sets into a muddy spring or a black sea here on Earth, and Surah 18:90 mentions a specific place on Earth where the sun rises. Many Muslims try and say about this absurdity "oh this is poetic". Nice try, it cannot be dismissed as figurative language or poetic, because it is given as part of an historical narrative.
The Qur’an says that one of the righteous men of God’s servants saw the sun set in a certain place of the earth—in particular a well full of water and mud. There, this man found some people. Let us read what is recorded in the Qur’an (chapter "the Cave", Surah 18 verse 86). "Until when he reached the place where the sun set, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people. We said: O Zulqarnain! either give them a chastisement or do them a benefit. ".
Zamakhshari remarks in his book, "the Kash-shaf",
"Abu Dharr (one of Muhammad’s close companions) was with Muhammad during the sunset. Muhammad asked him: ‘Do you know, O Abu Dharr where this sets?’ He answered: ‘God and His apostle know better.’ Muhammad said: ‘It sets in a spring of slimy water"’ (3rd Edition, Volume 2 p. 743,1987).
Why were stars created? In Surah 67:5 we read that the stars were created to be thrown at devils (Shaitans).
The real "Book" is factual...The Bible is an anvil on which many hammers have been broken. However, its enemies never tire of attempting to make some impression on it.
The Jewish-Christian Bible is a journal-like record of creation, including of the earths initial conditions. It is obvious that only the Bible is both supernaturally accurate and inspired. The Bible correctly describes creation from the standpoint of astrophysics and geophysics. It also summarizes the sequence of changes through which the Earth came to be inhabited by fallen angels, living things (dinosaurs and the like), and ultimately by humans. The Bibles' order and its description of creation perfectly matches established records of nature. God's direction to Joshua and Israel to wipe out tribes already present in Israel was due to God's great love for humanity. Fallen angels had mixed with women and created a perverted race, many of whom were giants. God simply desired that this mixed half human/half fallen angel gene pool be weeded out from the human genes.
God walks in many dimensions:
Hebrews 11:3 speaks of a transcendent creation (from beyond our known dimension) when it states that the universe that we humans can measure and detect was made from that which we cannot measure or detect. At least 12 verses in the Bible makes a claim that the universe is being "stretched out", or expanding - which one would expect were there a "Big Bang" creation. Job 9:8, Isaiah 44:24 and 45:12 repeatedly say that it is God alone who is responsible for this cosmic "stretching". The Bible also holds the formula for "Pi", and more. See here.
If the Qur'an is a true miracle of God - why is it so muddled with historical, scientific and other errors, including simple math? Wouldn't we expect an all-knowing Allah to be better student of history, science and math? If there is but one error in the Qur'an, how can it be inspired by God?
Muhammad had obviously heard some Bible stories, but he seems to have got them confused and mixed up when it came out in his prophetic utterances. It is quite apparent that the Qur'an is simply the product of hearsay and imperfect editing from a plurality of traditions then known to Muhammad.
When Muhammad was growing up, there existed two heretic branches of Christianity in Arabia which many arabs embraced. These were the Ebionite and Nestorian branches. Muhammad's first wife's (Khadija) cousin, Waraga bin Neufel was a pastor of the Ebionite Church in Mecca. Both of these branches falsely taught that Jesus Christ was not divine. This heretic pastor actually performed the marriage of Muhammad to Khadija. Also, many reports indicate only the Gospel of Matthew was translated into Arabic during this time. This information is given to show you where the human Muhammad got his false teachings about Jesus, the Trinity, and Christianity.
The stories in the Qur'an relating to events described in the Bible contradict the Bible in many points. It is quite apparent that Muhammad took much of what he taught from the Samaritan Pentateuch and the Psalms. Muhammad shows no knowledge of their prophetic or historical writings, however.
The formula "There is no God but the One" is an often recurring refrain in Samaritan liturgies. The similarity of the Muslim proclamation "There is no God but Allah" is very interesting. Also of note the opening chapter of the Qur'an is known as the Fatiha (meaning opening, or gate). The Samaritan's also have a prayer which is also considered a succinct confession of faith that begins with the words: "Amadti kamekha al fatah rahmekha". This means "I stand before thee at the gate of thy mercy". The Samaritan word for the opening or gate is "fatah".
In Surah 18:10-27 we see that Muhammad regurgitated the early Christian Rip Van Winkle-like myth/legend historians know as the "Seven Sleepers of Ephesus" from around the 250's AD. This is a legend about 7 noble Christian youths who took refuse in a cave while fleeing persecution during the rein of the Roman Emperor Decius. Their lives were miraculously saved because they fell into a deep sleep for almost 200 years. Typical of Muhammad's inattention to any literary or historical detail, Muhammad's Surah has them sleeping for 300-309 years. Surah 18:25 - So they stayed in their Cave three hundred years, and (some) add nine (more).
Behold, the youths betook themselves to the Cave: they said, "Our Lord! bestow on us Mercy from Thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way!" Then We draw (a veil) over their ears, for a number of years, in the Cave, (so that they heard not):... Surah 18:10-11
Historical errors in the Qur'an:
You can verify these here at this online Qur'an.
The Historical, Scientific, simple mathematics and theological contradictions in the Qur'an are too numerous to list. Remember, since Muhammad already proclaimed the Jewish Torah/ Christian Old Testament (Taurat) as correct in Qur'an Suras 2:87, 3:48, 3:50, 5:44, 5:46; 5.68, 6:154, 6:155, 29:46, 32:23, 43:63, 46:12, then the following gross errors that differ with the Torah and Christian Gospels are inexcusable.
These errors their selves scream out the Qur'an itself is entirely false.
We have noted newer English translations of the Qur'an popping up on the internet which are deceitfully attempting to cover up many of the errors cited below. Double check with your older Qur'ans--you'll see. The world is aware that the Qur'an is made up of 114 chapters (suras), made up of 30 parts, 6,616 verses (ayas), 77,943 words, and 338,606 letters. So consider this as you try and fine tune it to rid it of errors.
In Suras 2:87, 3:50, 5:44, 5:46 and 29:46 we are told that Muhammad is given the Qur'an as a confirmation of the Jewish/Christian Bible; that is - it is meant to prove the bible's authenticity.... In Surah 46:12 we are told.... "And before it the Book of Musa (Moses) was a guide and a mercy: and this is a Book verifying (it) in the Arabic language......"
Yet the historical, scientific, and simple math errors in the Qur'an that differ from the Jewish/Christian Bibles it already confirmed are utterly careless, foolish and devoid of any touch of divinity, as you will see. Also, disturbing about the Qur'an is that it makes no attempt at linear history. The Qur'an appears thrown together half hazardly with nological sequence, except only the largest Sura's are in the beginning. Whereas the Jewish Pentateuch (1st 5 books of Jewish Bible) is a continuous narrative from the beginning of the world until the Hebrews enter the Promised Land.
Never fully trust any one English or other non-Arabic translation of the Qur'an. Muslim apologists are fond of taking advantage of non-Arabs’ ignorance of the Arabic language to fool people. In the Arabic text, many verses of the Quran are very harsh, very illogical, very bloodthirsty and very scientifically erroneous. Therefore, trust the translations that are more harsh, more illogical, more bloodthirsty and more scientifically erroneous; because these are the more honest translations. Something Muslims will not tell you is that the Arabic language is not all that "pure". Syriac words occur in the Qur'an, like masih (Messiah) in Surah 3:45, furgan (salvation) in Surah 2:50, and istabrag (silk brocade) in Surah 76:21 (1988, Shorrosh, page 199)
Muhammad probably never knew the true name of God:
In the Torah/Old Testament, which the Qur'an claims above to support - God gives us another condition a true prophet must meet. A true prophet must prophesy in the name of the one true God. He must use Gods unique name. Gods unique name in the bible is YHWH (pronounced Yaweh) and is mentioned 6,823 times in the Bible. Muhammad never used Gods real name even once, suggesting he never knew it. Muhammad also seems to have not known He also told the Hebrews to call Him "I Am".
Here are just a few notable errors in the Qur'an:
- In Surah 2:249 Muhammad confuses the persons of Saul (Talut) and Gideon. See: Judges 7:4-7
- In Surah 26:54 the Israelites were said to be "a scanty band" (small band); vastly inferior to the Egyptians. But in Exodus 1:7-10 the Egyptian king said to his people that the Israelites had become "more and mightier than we". Exodus 1:9 speaks of the Hebrews as multitudes.
- The Koran confused the sister of Moses by implication (Miriam) with Mary, the mother of Jesus 3 times. And Muhammad seemed to think that Jesus was Moses' nephew, the son of Moses' sister Mariam. Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Miriam the sister of Moses actually lived about 1500 years apart. The entire Chapter 19 is devoted to Mary (Maryam) the mother of Jesus in the Qur'an. Surah 19:28, "O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!" Surah 66.12 calls Mary 'daughter of lmran". lmran is the Arabic form of the Hebrew Amram mentioned in Numbers 26.59 as the father of "Aaron, Moses and Miriam." The title "sister of Aaron" is given to Miriam in Exodus 15.20. Surah 3.35-36, The wife of Amram said, "My Lord, I have dedicated (the baby) in my belly to You, totally, so accept from me. You are Hearer, Omniscient."
- How many angels were talking to Mary? When the Qur'an speaks about the annunciation of the birth of Jesus to the virgin Mary, Surah 3:42,45 speaks about angels (plural) while it is only one in Surah 19:17-21. The Christian Bible clearly indicated one angel; "In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth," Luke 1:26
- Jesus taught people even in his "old age". (Surah 5:110). Actually Jesus ascended into Heaven while in His mid 30's.
- Do you remember the evil Persian Haman who conspired to kill all the Jews during the time of Esther in the Babylonian captivity (about 500 BC). In the Koran, Muhammad incorrectly taught that this wicked man Haman was the prime minister of the Egyptian Pharaoh (Firon) in Moses' time (1450 BC). See Suras 28:4-6, 28:38-39, 29:39, 40:23-24,and 40:36-37. Throughout the Qur'an--Nimrod and Abraham, Haman and Moses, Mary and Aaron, the tower of Babel (2500 BC) and Pharaoh were all pictured as living and working together. Moses and the flood are also incorrectly found together. Muhammad thought these all happened at the same time. Muhammad was always mixing people together in the Qur'an who did not live at the same time. See Suras 21:51-76; and 29:15-16. See this historical fumbling below...
- What about Noah's (Nuh) son? According to Surah 21:76, Noah and his family is saved from the flood, and Suras 29:15 and 37:76-77 confirms that his seed survived. But Surah 11:42-43 reports that Noah's son drowns.
- Surah 7:59 and 7:136 say Noah's flood took place in Moses' day. Did anyone tell Moses that?
- Surah 14:37, says Abraham lived in the valley of Mecca (Muslim Sacred House). The Bible says he lived in Hebron, Israel. (Genesis 13:18, 23:2, 35:27)
-Surah 2:61 In this beauty, Moses is being told about the prophets who were killed in Moses' day. Yet there were no prophets killed during Moses' time. Moses was the first prophet.
(Noble Qur'an) PICKTHAL: And when ye said: O Moses! We are weary of one kind of food; so call upon thy Lord for us that He bring forth for us of that which the earth groweth - of its herbs and its cucumbers and its corn and its lentils and its onions. He said: Would ye exchange that which is higher for that which is lower? Go down to settled country, thus ye shall get that which ye demand. And humiliation and wretchedness were stamped upon them and they were visited with wrath from Allah. That was because they disbelieved in Allah's revelations and slew the prophets wrongfully. That was for their disobedience and transgression.
- Surah 9:30 mistakenly claims that the Jews believed that Ezra was the Son of God, the Messiah, just as Christians claim for Jesus. No Jews have ever believed this.
- Surah 6:74, says Abraham father's name was Azar. The Bible says it was Terah (Genesis 11:27). How can Muhammad claim he verified the Torah which came first as true, yet differ with the facts in the Torah?
- Surah 9:10 says Zakarias was mute for only 3 days. The Bible says Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, was made mute because of his unbelief concerning Gabriel's prophecy of John's birth. He would remain mute until the baby was born (Luke 1:20), which is roughly nine months.
- Islam says it was Ishmael that was nearly sacrificed on the mountain rather than Isaac as both the Torah and Christian Gospels say. Islam says that Hagar was the legitimate wife (and not a concubine) of Abraham, rather than Sarah; so Ishmael was the heir of Abraham. But wait! Muhammad had already attested to the Bible and Torah as being correct. Then why these huge errors? Of note: After Muhammad's death, the Meccans (Waraquah) changed the name Isaac in Suras 2:125 and 127 for the name Ishmael and invented the story about Abraham taking Ishmael to their black rock in Mecca, so that pilgrims would continue to visit Mecca.
- Surah 5:72, The Quran falsely teaches that Jesus is not the Messiah. The Holy Injeel says He is.
Muhammad never understood the Trinity (Father / Son / Holy Spirit):
Surah 116, 4:171, 5:73-75, Muhammad mistakenly thought the Christian Trinity was 3 gods: the Father, the Mother (Mary), and the Son (Jesus). This is based on Muhammad's own misunderstanding seen in Surah 5:119. Also, in the last of all Suras we read: O Jesus, Son of Mary, hast thou said unto mankind 'Take me and my mother as two Gods beside God? ' He shall say: 'Glory be unto Thee! it is not for me to say that which I know to be not the truth.' There is no way for Muslims today to escape the fact that the Koran indeed contains this major theological blunder. The Bible, shows that there is a Trinity (Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7).
To make things far worse for Islam. In the Qur'an where Allah speaks, he says "We", "Us", Our" over 100 times!... Showing again and again that God is not a single person, but several persons in one divine being:
To get a clearer idea of the Christian Concept of the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) read this real Near Death Experience Testimony here and here. It shows that Jesus' light is one and the same as the Father's. And that only Jesus is our mediator with the Father. All (Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindu, etc) have sinned. So all require a mediator.
- Suras 7:8–9 and 21:47 teach Muslims that salvation is determined by good Works. Masons also teach this erroneous and very harmful theology. The Gospel of Jesus is adamant that we are saved by Faith alone, and not by works (Ephesians 2:8–9). Granted, the Bible says we must do a few things to obtain salvation, like repent (Acts 2:38), confess Jesus (Romans 10:10), and be baptized (Acts 2:38), but it is our continuing faith in Jesus as our only mediator that saves us. That is not to say we need not have works at all—we must have works to back up our faith (James 2:26). Nevertheless, we are not saved by our works, but by our faith and the grace of the Lord Jesus.
- Surah 28:8-9, says is was Pharaoh's wife who adopted Moses. The Bible says it was Pharaoh's daughter in Exodus 2:5-10.
- Paradise has one garden. (Surah 39:73, 41:30, 57:21, 79:41). Paradise has many gardens. (Surah 18:31, 22:23, 35:33, 78:32).
- Even the name for Jesus in the Qur'an is incorrect. The name for Jesus in the Qur'an is given as "Issa." Issa is the Arabic equivalent of Esau, the name for the twin brother of Jacob. The correct Arabic name for Jesus would be Yeshua or Yeshuwa.
-The names "Jesus and John" were among the most common names in Israel at the time of Jesus the Messiah. The name John was quite common in ancient Israel. Yet speaking of John the Baptist, a contemporary of Jesus, the Qur'an says in Surah 19:7 that the name John (Yahya) was not previously given. But In the biblical book of Ezra dating from a far earlier time than John the Baptist, we read; "And of the sons of Azgad; Johanan (John) the son of Hakkatan". The name John is also mentioned earlier than John the Baptist in: 2 Kings 25:23, and Jeremiah 40:8.
- Surah 20:83–89 tells us that a Samaritan (Samiri) made the golden calf for Israel while Moses was receiving the law. There are two problems with this: One, the Bible says it was Aaron (Exodus 32:1–4), and two, Samaritans didn't exist yet until after 870 BC (1 Kings 16:24). Samaria was founded by King Omri in about 870 B.C. (see 1 Kings 16:24). But "the Samaritans" as a distinct people only emerged after the exile of the Northern kingdom of Israel and the resettlement of the area under king Sargon II in after 722 B.C. The Exodus happened much earlier in about 1300-1400 BC.
- Pharaoh drowned. (Surah 17:103, 28:40, 43:55-56). Pharaoh did not drown. (Surah 10:91-93).
(Noble Qur'an, Surah 17:103) speaking of Pharaoh Pickthal says; "And he wished to scare them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him, all together". (Noble Qur'an, Surah 10:92) speaking of Pharaoh Pickthal says; "But this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayst be a portent for those after thee. Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents."
- Muhammad made up historical references for the Kabah (Kaba/Ka'bah). The Qur'an says the Kabah in Mecca was built by Adam and rebuilt by Abraham. Actually it was was built by pagan Meccans to worship a black rock that fell out of the sky. Abraham never lived in Mecca according to the Torah. The late Taha Hussein, one of the most famous Egyptian professors of Arabic literature said that the Islamic myth of Abraham building the Kaba came into vogue just before the rise of Islam. He comments:
"The case of this episode is very obvious because it is of recent date, and came into vogue just before the rise of Islam. Islam exploited it for religious reasons". Quoted in 'Mizar al-Islam' by Anwar al-Jundi.
Here are two "beauties":
- Surah 18:85,86, says that Alexander the Great (Zul-qarinain) followed the setting sun and found that it went down into the waters of a muddy spring. Surah 18:89-98 says the Greek Alexander the Great was a Muslim and worshipped Allah. Actually, Alexander the Great died very young and was by no means a Muslim. Alexander the Great lived from 356 - 323 B.C. (Before Jesus). He was 33 years old when he died. Muhammad and Islam did not come along till 610 A.D. (after Jesus), when Muhammad began preaching Allah and his new religion in Mecca. This was over 900 years after Alexander the Great died. Yusuf Ali and the Concise Dictionary of Islam confirm that Zul-qarinain in the Quran is Alexander the Great.
The Qur'an also incorrectly says in Surah 105:3-4 that Abrah's army was defeated by birds dropping stones on them. History (Guillame, Islam, pgs.21ff) says Abrah's army withdrew after smallpox broke out.
Other notable errors in the Qur'an:
Flip Flops: The origin of calamity? Is the evil in our life from Satan [Surah 38:41]; Ourselves [Surah 4:79]; or Allah [Surah 4:78]? Can slander of chaste women be forgiven? Yes [Surah 24:5], No [Surah 24:23].
Abrogation? "The words of the Lord are perfect in truth and justice; there is NONE who can change His words" (Surah 6:115). Also see Suras 6:34, 10:64, and 50:28,29. But then Allah (or Muhammad?) sees the need to exchange some of them for "better ones" (Suras 2:106, 16:101). And it is not for ignorant people to question Allah because of such practices! Let us Reason. How can a divine revelation be improved upon? If divine, would it not have been perfect from the start?
Suras 6:34, 6:115, 10:64 and 50:28,29 clearly says to Muslims, "No change can there be in the words of Allah" and that Allah cannot alter (or abrogate) his words." So the Torah and Christian Gospels are correct, because Allah did verify this fact -- this clearly makes the Muslim Qur'an is false; because it contradicts Allah.
- Consider the change of amount of days creation took, first from 6 days (Suras 7:54, 10:3, 11:7, and 25:59) and then it gets changed to 8 days (Suras 41:9-12). Is someone not playing with a full deck?
- Allah can have a son. (Surah 39:4). Allah can't have a son. (Surah 6:101, and 25:2).
- All angels obey Allah. (Surah 16:49-50). Not all angels obey Allah. (Surah 2:34)
- In Surah 19:19-22, the human Mary was told she would have an "immaculate conception," or be impregnated by Allah. Yet, Surah 6:100-101 denies that Allah could have a son or daughter through mortals.
- Face Mecca while praying. (Surah 2:144). Face Jerusalem while praying. Originally Muhammad instructed Muslims to face Jerusalem when praying; probably because Solomon established the practice of praying while facing Jerusalem (1 Kings 8:29, 30, 44; 2 Chronicles 6:21; Daniel 6:10). Apparently, Muhammad believed at first that God wanted him to pray facing Jerusalem and he did so for nearly 16-17 months - at least while he thought the he could convert the Jews to his religion. However, later, when the Jews rebuffed him Muhammad preferred to pray towards the Ka'ba in Mecca which, during this point in time, contained 360 idols.Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 392:
- Is Jesus a Prophet or not? Will Jesus burn in hell? In Surah 4:158 Jesus is raised to Allah, and in Surah 3:45 Jesus is stationed near Allah. Jesus is worshiped by billions of Christians. Yet Surah 21:98 says, that all that are worshiped by men besides Allah will burn in Hell together with those who worship them. Or, is Jesus Allah, the same substance with the Father?
- Did Jesus Die or Not? Surah 3:144 is quite adamant that all messengers died before Muhammad. But then Surah 4:158 claims that Jesus was raised to God (alive?) and 4:157 falsely says Jesus did not die.
- In Surah 4:157 we read that Jesus certainly did not die, yet in Surah 19:33 we read that not only did he die, but he arose again! 19:33 reads about Jesus: "And peace be upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day I get resurrected."
- What is the punishment for adultery? Surah 24:2 -Flogging with a 100 stripes (men and women); Surah 4:15 -"confine them to houses until death do claim them (lifelong house arrest - for the women); Surah 4:16 - For men: "If they repent and amend, leave them alone". Surah 24:2 contradicts both the procedure for women and men in Surah 4:15. And why is the punishment for women and men equal in Surah 24.2 but different in Surah 4:15?
- In Surah 19:67, "But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing?." In Surah 15:26, man is created from clay (We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape;)." Since clay is something, we have a contradiction since "nothing" excludes the possibility of "clay."
- The Koran is a divine revelation with no errors. Hmm! "This Qur'an is not such as can be produced by other than Allah; on the contrary, it is a confirmation of (revelations) that went before it, and a fuller explanation of the Book - wherein there is no doubt - from the Lord of the worlds" Surah 1:37; and "The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom" Surah 45:2 . But then look at this. "Never have We sent a prophet or apostle to you with whose wishes Satan did not tamper. But Allah abrogates the interjections of Satan and confirms His own revelations." Surah 22:52
Didn't Allah have a Basic Education?
- It just doesn't add up: Surah 4:11-12 and 4:176 state the Qur'anic inheritance law. When a man dies, and is leaving behind three daughters, his two parents and his wife, they will receive the respective shares of 2/3 for the 3 daughters together, 1/3 for the parents together [both according to verse 4:11] and 1/8 for the wife [4:12] which adds up to more than the available estate. A second example: A man leaves only his mother, his wife and two sisters, then they receive 1/3 [mother, 4:11], 1/4 [wife, 4:12] and 2/3 [the two sisters, 4:176], which again adds up to 15/12 of the available property.
- In Suras 6:14, 6:163 and 39:12 we are told that Muhammad (born 570 years after Jesus) was the first to bow down to Allah; making him the first Muslim. But wait, yet earlier in Qur'an passages weren't we already told in the Qur'an that Abraham, his sons and Jacob were former Muslims (Surah 2:132), and that all the earlier prophets (Surah 28:52-53), and Jesus' Jewish disciples (Surah 3:52) were also Allah believing Muslims?.
- Does Allah's day equal to 1,000 human years (Surah 22:47, 32:5) or 50,000 human years (Surah 70:4)? "Verily a Day in the sight of thy Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning." Surah 22:47; "The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in the Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years." Surah 70:4
- Heaven and Earth created? Surah 2:29 says first earth and then heaven was created. But wait, Suras 79:27-30 indicate, first heaven was created, and after that earth?.
- To Intercede or Not To Intercede? The Qur'an makes contradictory statements about whether on the Day of Judgment intercession will be possible. No: in Suras: 2:122-123, 254; 6:51; 82:18-19; etc. Yes: in Suras: 20:109; 34:23; 43:86; 53:26; etc. Typically, with Qur'an errors; each position can be further supported/abrogated by a later Hadith.
- Does Allah forgive shirk? Shirk can encompass any object that a person may hold in regard higher than Allah. It is the most severe of sins and will not be forgiven. But the author of the Qur'an seems unable to decide if Allah will ever forgive it or not. No in Suras 4:48 and 4:116; and Yes in Suras 4:153, 25:68-71. Another contradiction: According to lies in Surah 6:76-78 Abraham committed this sin of polytheism as he takes moon, sun, stars to be his Lord. Yet Muslims believe that all prophets are without any sin!
- In Surah 96:1-2 we read that God made man from a blood clot. But in Surah 21:30 it says man was made from water. And Surah 15:26 says man was made from clay.
- According to Surah 10:90-92, Pharaoh believed "in the sight of death" and was saved. But Surah 4:18 says that such a thing can't happen because Pharaoh did not also repent.
- Will Christians enter Paradise or go to Hell? Suras 2:62 and 5:69 say "Yes" to Paradise. Surah 5:72 (3 verses later) and Surah 3:85 say "No" to Paradise.
- In Surah 2:234 widows are to keep themselves apart for 4 months and 10 days after their husband's death. In Surah 2:240 it is one year.
- Allah, the god revealed in the Quran, is not a loving father. It says that he desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39, 125-126)
- Wine: Good or bad? Suras 5:90-91 and 2:219 - Strong drink and ... are only an infamy of Satan's handiwork. . Suras 47:15, and 83:22, 25 - Yet on the other hand in Paradise are rivers of wine. How does Satan's handiwork get into Paradise? Surah 2:219 also says there is profit in intoxicants.
Contrast these blunders in the Qur'an (Koran) showing this book is not inspired by God with this example of something really divinely inspired and accurate from the Jewish/Christian Bible:
Did you know?
According to Muhammad, Angels are the reason Roosters Crow, and Satan is why Donkeys bray!
Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported Allah's Messenger having said: Do not eat with your left hand, for the Satan eats with his left hand.
Muslims deny that Jesus died on the Cross
Muslims even deny that Jesus died on the cross; something that was faithfully reported in 4 Gospels. Consider the significance of the fact that no Jew or Roman alive at the time ever openly denied the Scriptural record of Jesus Christ's life, death, ministry or resurrection.
Certainly, with the Christian "cult" growing so rapidly throughout the regions and even into nearby countries in those early days, anyone having evidence to contradict the Scriptural account would certainly have likely been compelled to present it publicly. Additionally, in the Jewish Babylonian Talmud (Sanhedrin 43a) from the Tannaitic Period it is recorded: "On the eve of Passover Yeshu was hanged"....
WHO IS ALLAH?
Allah has pagan beginnings
When Muhammad was born in Mecca, each Arab tribe in Mecca had their own deity. There was a large black meteor found in the desert which many Arabs believed was sent to them by astral deities. This rock was placed in the southeast corner of the cube-shaped structure in Mecca. The arabs knew this rock as the Ka'ba, which means stone. The black rock's diameter is about 12 inches. It is reddish black in color, and has red and yellow particles. During this time before Islam this stone was part of the shrine to worship of a chief male god (among over 360 other gods) who was known as Hubal. The black meteor stone was said to symbolize a nature god known as al-Hajar al-Aswad. Hubal was an oracular deity whose statue -- in human form and made of red carneol -- stood in the Ka'ba until Muhammad destroyed it. The Kaba is about 50 feet high, and the walls are about 40 feet long. The facade contains the door, which starts at 7 feet off the ground, and faces N.E.. To enter the Kaba, a ladder must be used. Also built in the eastern corner, is another stone called "lucky". This stone is only touched, not kissed. Pagans called out the names of their pagan gods as they circled the Kaba the same as Muslims do today, calling out Allah's name. Early Meccan Pagans also ran between the nearby hills. Muhammad authorized Muslims to do that in the Quran, and Muhammad probably ran between the hills himself. So, even before Muhammad pagans were worshipping this black stone in the Kaba. Are we surprised that although Muhammad proclaimed only one God, he continued to participate in idol worship at this pagan shrine (Kaba); and Muslims still do idol worship there today? The black stone of Ka'aba is nothing but a holdover within Islam, from pre-Islamic paganism.
There is evidence that black stones were commonly worshipped in the Arab world. In 190 A.D. Clement of Alexandria mentioned that "the Arabs worship stone". He was alluding to the black stone of Dusares at Petra. In the 2nd century, Maximus Tyrius wrote; "The Arabians pay homage to I know not what god, which they represent by a quadrangular stone". Maximus was speaking of the Kaaba (Ka'ba) that contains the Black Stone.
The Qurash (aka: Quraish) tribe which Muhammad belonged to was in charge of idol worship at the Ka'ba Shrine. The chief god of Muhammad's tribe was one of the three sister goddesses called al-Uzza, the youngest of the three daughters of the pre-Islamic Allah and the patron goddess of Mecca. Her name means "the mighty one". The other two were named "al-Lat and "al-Manat". It was only by chance that a fortune teller counseled Muhammad's grandfather against sacrificing Muhammad's father to this al-Uzza pagan diety. The head of these pagan, animalistic deities was "Al-llah". It is believed that "al-llah" in Muhammad's time before Islam referred to a vague moon god and that Muhammad believed that al-Uzza was a daughter of this "al-llah".
The Qurash tribe's Allah corresponded to the god Bel, which is another name of the Assyrio-Babylonian gods En-lil and Marduk. It has the same meaning as Baal. The Arabic today translates the word Allah as "the God". Muhammad's father's name was Abd Allāh ibn ‘Abd al-Mullalib. "Abd-Allah" means slave of Allah. When Muhammad says there is only one god - Allah - now you have an idea what his background / thinking was; and who this Allah actually is. Muhammad sincerely believed in the power of this black meteorite. So much so, that he made it a the central point of Hajj (pilgrimage) to Mecca. The Hajj ends with everyone kissing this black stone as a devotion to Allah.
Of note: in 1988, Salman Rushdie's novel "Satanic Verses" contained the above as the basis for that book. This book led Ayatollah Khomeni to offer a $3 million bounty on the Muslim Salman Rushdie. But Salman Rushdie did not lie about Islam's early Satanic beginning! He merely reported the truth. And truth is something Islam cannot tolerate. Salman Rusdie was knighted by the British queen in June 2007.
Would a true Prophet make any exception to Monotheism (belief in only one God)?
During the early stages of Islam, Muhammad was frustrated in his attempts to win over Mecca's merchants and other powerful people, who were all polytheists (believe in many gods). Finally he relented on his hitherto uncompromising monotheism and stated that it was permitted for the pagan gods of Mecca --specifically, three female deities named al-Lat, al-Uzza, and Manat --to intercede before Allah for the people. According to Islamic tradition, Satan took advantage of Muhammad's desire for reconciliation and "put upon his tongue" as a revelation from Allah this rhetorical question and answer: "Uzza and Manat, the third, the other"? These are the exalted Gharaniq (cranes) whose intercession is approved." The pagan members of Muhammad's tribe, the Quraysh, were pleased; they prostrated themselves before their gods as the Muslims were prostrating themselves before Allah, and went out saying, "Muhammad has spoken of our god in splendid fashion."
How did Muhammad get out of this mess? Just as you would expect. "Miraculously" and conveniently, Gabriel came to Muhammad and and gave a new Surah (22:51) which says that Satan routinely tampers with the messages of the prophets. Reference: Page 69, "Inside Islam, A Guide for Catholics"
The Suyuti says in Asbab of the Nuzul (page 184):
"Muhammad was in Mecca. He read the chapter of the Star. When he uttered, ‘Have you seen the Lat, the ’Uzza, and the other third Manat?’, Satan instilled in his tongue, ‘These are the exulted idols (daughters of God) whose intercession is hoped.’ The infidels said that Muhammad had mentioned their gods with good words. Then when he prostrated, they prostrated, too. Thus, the above verse 22:52 was not inspired."On page 282 of the Commentary of the Jalalan, we read the same interpretation, and the Jalalan added,
In his book, "The Kash-shaf’, the Zamakh-shari (A.D.1144) (part 3, pages 164 and 165), asserts that,
"This episode which Muhammad experienced is common knowledge and unquestionable, and is related to us by the companions of Muhammad."
In short, this Allah is not the God of the Jews or the Christians. Allah is in fact a Meccan Moon god idol. To confess that Allah is the same God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses is to deny Yahweh (I Am), who is revealed in the Lord Jesus the Christ!
The standard of judgment for the God of the Qur'an is that our good deeds (to Muslims only) must outweigh our bad deeds (Suras 7:8-9; 21:47); but the standard of the God of the true Bible is nothing less than complete perfection as measured by the holy character of God (Matthew 5:48; Romans 3:23).
Since nobody can attain perfection, God sent His only Son as a substitute atonement (korban) so that those who believe and trust in Jesus, although imperfect ourselves--will have eternal life. In short, did a marvelous thing that shows He loves us. God Himself (Yeshua/Jesus) was the only perfect sacrifice to this dilemma.
Two important attributes of Yahweh (I am/Jesus) is that God is both just and merciful. Muslims Often ask me -How can God die on a cross? When they should be asking; "Why did God suffer and die on a cross"? The answer is God is love! Love for us is the reason the Father sent His Son Jesus to die in our place --- to save us from the just punishment for our sins. Because of the Cross, Yeshua/Jesus got the justice, and we got the mercy.
Muslim activists in the West have been using the tactic of claiming that they worship the same god as the Christians in order to gain legitimacy and acceptance. They have been using the name "God" in place of "Allah" in many translations of the Qur'an.
Satanic lie: Good deeds will get you to heaven. Truth: The wages of sin/any sin are death.
Islam is very much a deeds-based religion where God is keeping score. For Muslims, good deeds go on one side of God's ledger, and bad deeds go on the other side. Islam says that on the day of resurrection, each person's ledger will be balanced. Assuming that all of the other basic qualifications were met during life (i.e., the 'Pillars of Islam'), if the person's good outweighs the bad: Paradise. If the bad outweighs the good: Hell. It's just that simple. NO Muslim ever knows if they are destined to rot in hell forever. Muhammad said he was unsure himself if he would go to heaven or hell.
The real God has made it all simpler than this false deed-based system. But it requires you believe something with your whole heart. This may require you leaving your family and/or friends. But, your eternal life, and where you spend eternity demands it.
You have to accept the Son of God's substitutional atonement of your sins.
Islam says the God of the Qur'an provided a messenger, Muhammad, who warned of Allah's impending judgment (Suras 2:119; 5:19; 7:184, 188; 15:89-90) and who declared that "No bearer of a burden can bear the burden of another" (Suras 17:15; 35:18, Ali); but the God of the Bible provided a sinless Savior, Jesus, who took our sins upon himself and bore God's wrath in our stead (Matthew 20:28; 26:28; Luke 22:37; John 3:16; 10:9-11; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10).
Interesting enough. Jesus and Mary were among the many images—in addition to the goddesses of fertility and power—worshiped at the Ka'bah during Muhammad's day. Early stories of Muhammad relate how when he entered Mecca in triumph he ordered the destruction of all idols and images. But, when he came upon a picture of the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus inside the Ka'bah he reverently covered this icon with his cloak. He ordered all other images to be destroyed, and that the image of the Madonna and Child was to be looked upon as sacred.
One Muslim myth, concerning the Kaba, is that anyone who prays under the Kaba's water-pipe becomes as pure as on the day when his mother bore him. Muslims have a hard time accepting the Christ's atonement even though it is there clear as day in all 4 Gospels that Muhammad validated, but Muslims will allow for total forgiveness of sins by uttering a prayer under a spout! Who is being deceived?
Islam's dilemma about Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus & the divinity of Jesus
Islam's high regard for Mary is rooted in various texts of the Koran (Qur'an), including the following: "Behold! the angels said: 'O Mary! Allah has chosen you above the women of all nations'" (Surah 3:42). The purity of Mary in Islamic thought is equated with sinlessness. The Qur'an even affirms the Virgin Birth of Jesus, echoing Mary's response to the angel Gabriel from Luke's Gospel: "She said: 'O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?'" (Surah 3:47). Muslim theologians, however, do not explore the implications of Mary's sinlessness or the Virgin Birth. They do not want to pursue a line of thought that might lead to the affirmation that Jesus was divine, a very disturbing conclusion for the Muslim. Reference: Pages 61 & 62, "Inside Islam, A Guide for Catholics"
Add this dilemma about Mary to the fact that the Qur'an confused the sister of Moses by implication (Miriam) with Mary (lived 1500 yrs apart), the mother of Jesus 3 times --and one needs to seriously question Islam's and its Allah's credibility. Also, remember, Muhammad seemed to think that Jesus was Moses' nephew, the son of Moses' sister Mariam.
More Islamic Editing of their Qur'an:
In the Koran, Surah 53:19 says 'Have you considered "Al Lat" and "al-Uzza" and "Manat" the third other?' This passage was originally followed by the words 'Verily they are the exalted maidens and their intercession is to be hoped for'. The polytheistic Pagans of Mecca were delighted when Muhammad delivered this passage because it was a chant recited by the Qurash tribe as they circled the Ka'aba while worshipping these three principle goddess of pre-Islamic Mecca. This compromise also caused some companions to doubt Muhammad and leave his fold. "Al-Lat" was the most famous of the pre Islamic pagan gods. She was the chief goddess (and idol) of the tribe of Thakif at Taif, who tries to compromise with Muhammad, if only he could destroy their god "Al-Lat" for 3 years.
The earliest authority on the life of Muhammad (Ibn Hisham) claimed that these words were uttered by Muhammad at the "instigation of Satan" and are considered to the be Satanic Verses (not to be confused with Salman Rushdies' book).
When Muhammad realized that his attempt to appease the pagan Meccans was causing his followers to leave, he quickly made a slight alteration and a major omission to this passage by dropping the sentence about the exalted maidens. To make matters worse, Gabriel allegedly came to Muhammad and denied that he had revealed the word to him. ('Sirat'ul Rasool' as revised by Ibn Hisham, (vs. 239), and Tabari pp. 1 192). Muhammad retained the named of the goddesses, and added that it was unfair that God should have daughters while humans had sons (See Surah 53:19-23).
In fact, God does have a Son (begotten/not made).
Proverbs 30:4 (written 700 B.C./1323 yrs before Muhammad): "Who hath ascended up into heaven or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the Earth? What is His name, and what is His son's name, if thou canst tell?" Read here to find out.
Goodness & truth prevails
Islam would have Christians and Jews believe that this pagan Allah who insists on world domination and death to non-believers -- and who is the same god who offers Muslim terrorist martyrs hedonistic sex with virgins in heaven - is the same Christian and Jewish "holy God of the Book". Christians and Jews think that this is blasphemy.
Though present-day Jews and Christians are not all saints, there is no getting around the fact that neither of those religions has sprouted a contemporary movement aimed at world domination to be achieved by terror and war. That honor is reserved for the Muslim faith. It must be concluded, that the real problem, the baseline problem, lies with Satan's subtle lies found in the message (Qur'an); and also with the messenger (Muhammad).
Slavery is not a hallmark of the true God
Most individual Muslims may respect and honor women, but Islam doesn't! Several words Muhammad uses in his dishonorable Qur'an to describe women should be an "eye opener". The words “naghess al aghl” literally means defected witted person. It describes the intellectual capability of women in general. And the word “zaeefeh”, refers directly to female gender in contrast to men in ain a condescending way. It means “the weaker one” . Muhammad's Allah command this: “Give them their dowry for the enjoyment you have had of them as a duty” (Koran 4.24). In other words, a Muslim husband should live with his wife to satisfy his own need and pleasure. It is clearly understood in Islam, that if a woman disobeys her husband, it is usually necessary for her husband to stop having sex with her (temporarily) and for him to teach her "a lesson" by some form of physical punishment.
The Islamic Qur'an itself is responsible for cruelty toward Muslim women, both young and old. In short, this evil book likens a woman to a field (or a tilth). This "field" is to be used by a Muslim man as he sees fit. This "model" was set forth by Muhammad himself, and what he said and how he treated women. If a woman does not consent to make love, civil law of western countries consider this as rape, plain and simple. However the Quran does not ask women. It takes into account only the will of the husband.
Christians believe their lives should be modeled after that of the Lord Jesus who spent time teaching women, which broke with the customs of his day (Luke 10:38-42). His respect was demonstrated even toward sinful women who turned to him for compassion (Luke 7:36-39). Jesus, the true prince of peace, crossed racial and cultural barriers to reveal his true identity to a Samaritan woman (John 4:1-42). Jesus healed a woman on the Sabbath and Jesus He freed the woman caught in adultery from being stoned. And, after his resurrection, Jesus honored the female disciples by appearing to them first (Matthew 28:8-10).
Aisha, the most beloved of Muhammad's many wives said to Muslim women: "O womenfolk, if you knew the rights that your husbands have over you, every one of you would wipe the dust from her husband's feet with her face."
This satanically-inspired Islamic religion has also managed to enslave women, which the true God would never be part of. If the husband wants to have sex with his wife he can, even by force - which in the west, and in Christian and Jewish tradition, is considered cruelty and rape. Under Egyptian law, Muslims are not allowed to change their religious identities to any other faith, although Christians are free to convert officially to Islam.
The Koran (Qur'an) is the biggest enemy of civilization, liberty and truth that the world has ever known. Inherent in the Qur'an are polygamy, divorce, slavery, elevation of jihad as a sure way to heaven, hatred of non-believers, and even lying if it is gainful.
Cruel Muslim mullahs, imams and ayatollah's insist a woman must wear a veil as a way to remove the female sex from its just position and influence in the world--itself a form of slavery. You may think this to be a small issue. You wouldn't if you were a woman and had to bundle up in 110 degree weather every day, just because of extreme male chauvinism. This comes from Muslim interpretation of the way Muhammad treated his own wives to apply to all women.
The real Truth is that Jesus is waiting to take your burden, to save you, and give you eternal life!
Muslims can be funny!
Allah perverts people?
The picture of Allah as revealed by the Qur'an is quite different to the one of God revealed in both the Old and New Testaments.
The Qur'an teaches that Allah is not only utterly transcendent but also the author of evil. "God is the best of devisers", "my guile is sure" are quotes from the Qur'an concerning Allah! Muhammad said, " My sincere counsel will not profit you, if God desires to pervert you; He is your lord ...." (Arberry, Interpreted pgs 200, 193, 243 quoted in 'The Facts on Islam" by John Ankerberg and John Weldon).. The Qur'an frequently refers to "the man whom Allah deliberately misleads".
Would a true and righteous God do this?
Muhammad is infatuated with adopted son's wife. Takes her for himself.
According to the Qur'an (Koran):
Muhammad adopted Zaid (aka: Zayd) because Muhammad had no sons. Zaid married a stunningly beautiful woman named Zainab (aka: Zaynab). Once when Muhammad was visiting Zaid's home he accidentally saw Zaibab in scanty attire. Muhammad was overcome with lust. In the Koran we are told that it was Allah who caused Muhammad's heart to desire Zainab. And that it was Allah's Will for Zaid to divorce his wife so that Muhammad could marry her. Muhammad married Zainab in June 626 A.D. This Allah therefore desires lust and coveting a "neighbor's" wife. Naturally, his followers began to murmur about their pious prophet acting this way. So, lo and behold yet another Surah was miraculously given some months after the fact from Allah that absolved Muhammad personally (Surah 33:37).
There are three obstacles to Zaid's proposal to relinquish his wife to Muhammad. (1) The Islamic stance regarding the evil of divorce; (2) The Quranic limitation of four wives per man; and (3) the strong social principle that no distinction should be made between adopted sons and sons by birth. After Muhammad took Zaid's wife he did a quick razzle-dazzle to cover his tracks. He conveniently received another revelation (Surah 33:4-5, 40) that said; henceforth adopted sons should retain the name of their natural fathers and that Muhammad had no blood tie to Zaid. Muhammad promptly changed Zaid's name from Zaid ibn Muhammad, back to Zaid ibn Harithah. (The Quran Unveiled, pg 20)
Surah 33:37-38 (Noble Qur'an) Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favour: "Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear Allah." But thou didst hide in thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their marriage) with them. And Allah's command must be fulfilled. There can be no difficulty to the Prophet in what Allah has indicated to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And the command of Allah is a decree determined.
Or, was it more of Muhammad's scheming, and making up the rules to get his own way with this beautiful woman? We note elsewhere where Muhammad laid with a 9 year old girl (Ayisha) when Muhammad was in his 50's, and also a beautiful 17 year old Jewish girl (Safiyah) - one day after Muhammad had her family massacred. Although Muhammad fixed the legal number of wives as 4 for his followers, Muhammad let it be known that Allah gave Muhammad himself the special privilege of any number of wives. Muhammad again miraculously received a Surah giving himself the privilege of cohabitating with his female slaves.
In the Jewish-Christian Bible Jewish Kings were chastised, disciplined and ostracized by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for this sort of coveting behavior that the Islamic Allah applauds. This behavior issue is another reason that Allah is not the One and true God. Wouldn't one expect the true Lord to insist on good Christian behavior? The true just God of the Bible simply would not give Muhammad special dispensation over others. Would a just God exempt one man (Muhammad) from the law. All the while expecting other men to keep it? The Prophets of God were never given the right to sidestep God's laws. Remember, this was supposedly a divinely directed law, Muhammad was under obligation to obey. Jesus said; "Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery." (Matthew 19:9)
Whereas, Yahweh (I Am) has provided eternal salvation and life to those who believe in Jesus (Isa); because Jehovah's wrath has already been poured out on Jesus, for the sins of those who trust and believe in Jesus...
Consider what Allah really desires: The Islamic Qur'an says that Allah desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39 , 126). He does not help those who are led astray by him (Surah 30:29) and desires to use them to populate hell (Surah 32:13).
Echoes of Eden (The Lying):
Would a True Prophet of God condone and actually permit lying, to further his own goals?
Muhammad treated truth and deception according his own style of situational ethics. For example:
The Prophet said, "Yes," Muhammad bin Maslama said, "Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab). " The Prophet said, "You may say it." ... (Sahih al-Bukhari 5.369, cf. the article on Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf for further details)
Muslim Doctrine of Taqiyya (or lying is ok): In the west very few people understand a very important doctrine of Islam called Taqiyya (Taqeya, Taqiya). Until we understand this in the west, we will never be able to deal with the Muslim world properly. Taqiyya roughly translates as lying for the faith. A Muslim may tell any lie when they are threatened. In short, a Muslim can lie as a holy duty to deceive and gain an advantage over the unbeliever. The non-prophet Muhammad sanctioned this when he said; “he who keeps secrets shall soon attain his objectives.” Can we imagine Jesus, Moses or Buddha saying “Hey lying is good!”? Is it any wonder that freemasons think the same way Muhammad does?
The Islamic god with a little "g" has just been caught teaching lies. God Himself cannot lie! The true God teaches that lying is wrong under all circumstances. See 1 John 2:21, Proverbs 13:5, Titus 1:2 and Ephesians 4:25
An example of the Qur'an teaching deceit:
Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief,- except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith - but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty. Surah 16:106
According to the above Surah, when under compulsion, Muslims could just pretend to believe another faith, while secretly retaining their Muslim faith. This is in stark contrast to the thousands Christian martyr who refused to renounce their faith, and gladly died for Jesus.
Beware - Allah has not one attribute of love for Muslims:
Muslim's and any others considering Islam should take care to note that the Allah they are praying to, has not one attribute of love. This should be a another sign to you that who you bow down to in Islam is really not whom the imams, mullahs and ayatollah's say he is. Look through the Qur'an - there is no attribute of unconditional love accorded Allah to his Muslims--but once. Ironically, in Surah 20:390 Allah does unconditionally say he loves one man - the Hebrew Moses.
Another "red flag" is that there is not one place in either the Muslim Qur'an or even in the much later made up Hadith's that teaches Muslims to have a loving relationship with Allah. This Allah is to only be feared by Muslims. Muslims are in no way allowed "free will" by this tyrant.
The Qur'an does have words such as Allah is compassionate. But to whom? Certainly Allah was always compassionate to Muhammad, who stood behind all of Muhammad's escapades. In fact, Allah often changed his mind/teachings to suit Muhammad's schedule of plunder, murder and political intrigue. Allah was not compassionate to all those (Arab poets, women with babies, Jews, Christians and other dissenters) Muhammad ordered to be ruthlessly murdered - simply because they stood up to him and his band of killers.
To give one an idea of just how intolerant and unforgiving Muhammad himself was. When Muhammad's uncle Abu Lahab publicly rejected Muhammad's "prophetic" message, Muhammad curses Abu Lahab and his wife in words that have become an entire Surah (Surah 111:1-5) in the Qur'an: "May the hands of Abu Lahab perish! May he himself perish! Nothing shall his wealth and gains avail him. He shall be burnt in a flaming fire, and his wife, laden with faggots, shall have a rope of fibre around her neck!" This is the sort of example of its founder, that the Muslim Qur'an if filled with.
This should be a yet another warning. When you hear hatred preached in your mosques realize who you really follow.
Muhammad's "carrot" to ensure his world domination via Jihad:
Will all Muslims go to Hell? According to Surah 19:71 every Muslim will go to Hell (for at least some time), while another passage states that those who die in Jihad will go to Paradise immediately.
A symptom of evil (bait and switch). Except for Allah saying he loved the Jew/Hebrew Moses (in Surah 20:39) there is not one mention of Allah unconditionally loving man in the Qur'an (Koran); or providing a route to salvation. Can you be sure your time in Hell will not be an eternity? If you do not do Allah's bidding by doing terrorist acts -- what future awaits you as a Muslim?
The true Living God already provided a simple plan to salvation; and it is the true path of Peace.
Muslims often say they honor Jesus as a great prophet. If they truly honored Jesus Muslims would believe what He (Jesus) said;
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
"I and my Father are one." John 10:30
"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also." 1 John 2:22, 23
The loving God made the Key to Life after Death simple:
In the Christian Bible, in John 4:8 and 16 we read; "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, and have everlasting life."
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life." -John 5:24
Also, Jesus said this to those who follow Him: "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." John 14:2.
The God of the Jewish and Christian Bible is revealed as a faithful Father, the God of love, truth and justice. Jehovah, the God of the Christian-Jewish Bible is "too pure to look upon sin" and is "not willing that any should perish, but desires that all men come to a knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:4).
The true Christian-Jewish God "has no pleasure in the death of a sinner" and according to the Bible even sent Jesus, His Son into the world to pay the price of our sins so that we could be forgiven, despite the just penalty of death that sinners such as you and I deserve.
Your eternal Salvation depends on your seeing this:
In the Koran there is listed 99 attributes of Allah. Except for Allah saying he loved the Jew/Hebrew Moses (in 20:39) there is not one mention of Allah unconditionally loving man in the Qur'an (Koran).
Remember, it is quite clear in the Qur'an that Muhammad and his Allah thought Moses lived at the time on Noah, and that Jesus' mother Mary was Moses' and Aaron's sister.
Weigh all this evidence carefully - because your entire salvation and where you spend eternity depends on you getting this right. You will find that Allah is a false god. Allah is the same old tribal pagan god of pre-islamic arabs. Muhammad simply elevated Allah to a deity position to motivate his troops for plunder, raping, and murdering. It provided Muhammad the "authority" he needed for him to live his own "good life"; just as it continues to provide a "good life" for the despotic arab kings, imams, mullahs and other teachers of Islam today. Knowing Muhammad's historic life style are you willing to bet eternal life on this one source alone (Muhammad)?
The Qur'an is not from numerous corroborated sources like the Jewish and Christian bibles. It comes from one source alone; a supposedly nazil (or tanzil - the belief it has been sent down from God, unfettered by human hands) revelation to Muhammad only. There is not a single outside witnesses who can corroborate Muhammad's testimony; nor are any miracles or even prophesies (about him) provided to substantiate his claims.
Is Allah someone you would rationally want any dealings with?
Let us reason. If a man had the character of Allah, as described in the Qur'an, no one in their right mind would want to do business with him! For Allah is apparently a god who misleads, perverts people, changes his mind and encourages polygamy, concubinage, wife-beating, slavery and "holy" war on the enemies of Islam. The more serious people are about following Allah and the Qur'an, the more social wreckage they will create both in the home and in the international arena.
Muhammad's Military History
This history of Muhammad & Islam is based on Islamic & other sources such as:
Muhammad received the initial Qur'an in a Cave:
Muhammad claimed the angel Gabriel transmitted the entire Koran to him from Allah while he was living in the Hira Cave. At first Muhammad feared he had been overtaken by a "Jinn", a troubling spirit (see picture below). But Muhammad's wife Khadijah encouraged him that his visions were indeed from God and that he had been chosen as his special messenger. Amr ibn Sharhabil says Muhammad mentioned to his wife Khadijah that he feared he was possessed by demons and wondered whether others might consider him possessed by jinn (Pfander 1910:345). He says Muhammad said; “ When I went into seclusion I heard a voice. By Allah I feared that something wrong was going to happen.” Also revealing is the report by Al Waqidi that Muhammad had such an aversion to the form of the cross that he would break everything brought into the house with a shape of the cross on it (Nehls 1990:61).
When Muhammad began to preach his new religion in 610 A.D. the leaders of Mecca were strongly opposed. In 622 A.D. Muhammad was approached by the elders from a town located some 250 miles north of Mecca who asked Muhammad to be their ruler. Muhammad accepted on the conditions that they would also accept him as a prophet and that he could bring his followers. The exodus to this town, later known as Medina is known by Muslims as the "hijra". The Meccans attacked the Medinans several times, but the Medinans always managed to drive them off. In 627 A.D. the Meccans were defeated by Muhammad's forces, and the Muslims returned to Mecca and cleansed the "kaba" of all its idols. Muhammad continued to rule Medina, where he died in 632 A.D.
Muslims should be reminded of Muhammad's own humanity, fickleness and unworthiness. Muhammad was extremely close to Jews in the beginning of his campaigns of rape, plunder, and murder. In those days, Muhammad realized he could only capture Mecca and Medina with Jewish help.
Muhammad & Allah Fickle?
Hoping to garner Jewish support for those military campaigns, Muhammad had yet another vision that his Allah wanted Muslims to do their praying (salla or sallatun) facing (Qibla) the then Christian city of Jerusalem.
Muhammad stopped this practice when he realized there was no hope that the Jews would join Islam. Henceforth Muhammad and his Allah stopped the practice of facing Jerusalem and ordered all prayers to henceforth be said while facing in the direction of Mecca. Yusuf Ali points out in footnote 141, commenting on Surah 2:142, Muhammad chose Jerusalem for this purpose, but later on, when they proved stubborn in rejecting his apostleship, he came up with a complete change in the direction of prayer; that is, towards Mecca rather than Jerusalem.
In Surah 2:106 the Qur'an teaches, "And for whatever verse We abrogate or cast into oblivion, We bring a better or the like of it; knowest thou not that God is powerful over everything?" But didn't Allah say in Surah 10:65, "There is no changing in the Words of Allah," after this abrogation clause?
Apparently then, the Qur'an teaches that some verses that Allah has brought down have been abrogated - that is, they are no longer binding or applicable. Apparently, Allah changed his mind about some of the verses he gave through his prophet. In this Allah is different to the God of the Bible, "with whom there is no shadow of turning" (James 1:17), who is "the Lord, who changeth not" (Malachi 3:6), whose Word "endureth forever". The real God has infinite wisdom and cannot contradict Himself.
The Islamic Doctrine of Abrogation - is a Contradiction in the extreme. It basically says -on one hand Allah is firm and unchanging in what he says - but on the other hand if it helps Muhammad's cause or Muhammad's life style, Allah will change his words to suit Muhammad. This is a doctrine which is spurned by many Muslims who believe it reflects most unfavorably on the supposed textual perfection of the Qur'an. The uninspired Muhammad sometimes forgot his own revelations, and had to do a "tap dance" and quickly issue new "revelations" that excused and justified himself. See Surahs 2:106 above, and also 87:6-7, and 6:68
The biggest contradiction in the Qur'an (Koran) is that it says the Qur'an can be contradicted at any time. God can change his mind, and change verses in the Qur'an, with or without telling Muslims. This principle is called the "Doctrine of Abrogation."
The doctrine arose from a practical dilemma. Muhammad wanted to marry his daughter in law, but he had already "revealed" the suras that prohibit Muslims from marrying their daughters in law. Muhammad's solution was the doctrine of abrogation - the idea that Allah, through Muhammad, can change his mind about anything at anytime and Muslims have to shut up and obey:
Furthermore, this Muslim doctrine of abrogation extends so far as to dismiss all previous revelation, given in the Jewish-Christian Bibles. Thus Muslims see no problem in that the Qur'an has re-written biblical history with stories and historical accounts that contradict the Bible. To deal with the contradiction between the Bible and the Qur'an, Muslims throughout history have claimed that the Jews and Christians have corrupted their Bible so that the original Bible no longer exists. No matter what evidence for the truth and reliability of the Bible and Torah is provided, Muslims refuse to face the possibility of the truth of the present Bible as we know it.As related in Zamakh-shari, part I, p. 303 - Muhammad very frequently stated something to his followers with the claim that it was revealed to him through the angel Gabriel. Just as frequent though, Muhammad would tell them that God had changed his mind and invalidated it. Thus the infidels used to say, "Muhammad utters something today and abolishes it tomorrow" (refer to ).
In Asbab al-Nuzul, p. 19, the Suyuti says that,
"Ibn ’Abbas himself said, ‘Sometimes the revelation used to descend on the prophet during the night and then he forgot it during daytime, thus God sent down this verse: 2:106." ( that says, "Whatever communications We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring one better than it or like it.")Is it acceptable or sensible to think that God changes His mind during the night? Ibn ’Abbas is not the only one who insists on that because ibn ’Umar says,
"Two men read a Surah which the apostle of God had taught them, yet one night they rose up to pray but they failed to remember one word of it. The next morning, they went to the apostle of God and related it to him. He told them, ‘It is one of those, which have been abrogated, thus, forget about it.."’ (Refer to the Itqan, 3:74).
Doesn't Allah walk in many dimensions such as the Christian and Jewish God? If Allah did, why can't he foresee the future? Why does Allah need to abrogate (change his mind so much)?
On page 117, 123, Dr. Shalabi along with Suyuti says,
The entire Surah is only 20 verses. Its beginning is abrogated by its end, and its end is replaced by the injunction of the five prayers; that is, the Abrogator has been abrogated. In relation to this verse the Jalalan say (p. 491),
"Aisha said, The prophet heard a man reciting in the mosque. He said, ‘May God have mercy on him, he has reminded me of such and such verses which I dropped from Surah so and so."’So Muhammad sometimes used to forget some verses and his friends had to remind him of them, but whenever he did not find anybody to remind him, he claimed that they had been abrogated.
Now consider this gem:
Allah (or Muhammad) claims the "people of the book" (Christians & Jews) have a book of divine revelation. Yet, most of the Qur'an contradicts the Christian/Jewish Bibles.
Especially, Islam contradicts the revelation in the Gospels that Jesus is the only begotten Son of the Father; that Jesus died a a "korban" (sacrificial / substitutional) death for us; and that Jesus is the only way to salvation.
The historical Muhammad was in fact an ambitious terrorist, criminal and murderer - whose entire life was based on victimizing innocents and indulging in mindless violence, carnage and massacre. He was a man who destroyed peace wherever he went; and in its place brought terror, rapings, unmerciful butcheries, carnage and death - all the while invoking God's holy name to sanction his evil deeds.
The glue to keep his terrorist band together was his ordering of alms and prayers, and the receipt of timely "revelations" that always seemed to condone and to suit this non-prophet's activities at the time. Islam itself was welded together by Muhammad, using his limited knowledge of both Christianity, Judaism, Samaritan and ancient Persian Zoroastrism. He even included certain Christian heresies in his doctrine. His hearsay knowledge of Christianity and Judaism resulted in Muhammad's failure to get many historical facts correct. Some of these were discussed above.
In this day and age we would even consider Muhammad a confused pedophile. Muhammad's sexual appetite was legendary. Even "Sahih Al-Bukhari" says Muhammad slept with his 11 wives in one night. Muhammad is estimated by scholars to have had somewhere between 15-25 wives. All agree that he had 9 wives at the time of his death. Whether you would class Muhammad as a pedophile by today's understanding is moot. The essential feature of pedophilia is that an individual is sexually attracted exclusively or in part to prepubescent children. It can encompasses just desire, not just physical sexual activity. We don't know what Muhammad's thought in life but his actions certainly don't look good: at a minimum history attests to Muhammad's gross moral turpitude and sexual abuse. We also know that Muhammad was a heartless terrorist who tortured people by cutting off their heads (over 700 Jews in Medina alone), their hands and their feet. He also made captives die of thirst, and made people bleed to death after cutting off their limbs. Muhammad took captives attractive female slaves into his harem, and distributed the wives and children of his enemies to his followers as slaves.Muhammad’s was sexually involved with at least 22 women. Although in the Quran he would limit his followers to having four wives, he himself took more than four wives and many concubines. The question of the number of women with whom Muhammad was sexually involved either as wives, concubines or devotees was made a point of contention by the Jews in Muhammad's day. Ali Dashti comments:
"All the commentaries agree that verse 57 of Surah 4 (on-Nesa) was sent down after the Jews criticized Mohammad's appetite for women, alleging that he had nothing to do except to take wives" (Ali Dashti, 23 Years, pp. 120-138).
Muhammad's first wife - Khadija, died a few years before he fled to Medina. Later, he was encouraged to take another wife. At the age of 49 he was betrothed to Aisha, age six in 624 A.D. Aisha was his closest friend's, Abu Bakr's, daughter. Abu Bakr was Muhammad’s daily companion and one of his first believers and successor of Muhammad. We can rightfully imagine 6 year old Aisha picking up her toys and moving to Muhammad's house, where he demurely waited until she was nine to have sexual intercourse with her.
In the first year of Muhammad's residence at Yathrib (now Medina) the "Prophet" who never prophesized, celebrated his marriage to Ayisha. Ayisha was then only a young girl (jariyah) of 9-years old per Al-Bukhari, Abu Dawud and Tabari Aisha was 9 when they Muhammad sexually consummated his marriage with her. Muhammad 52.
Lying with a 9 year old girl in this century or in the 7th century is abominable. It was abominable then in Arabian society also. Particularly distasteful about Muhammad, is that after Muhammad deflowered this young 9 year old girl, he also taught that his followers were to follow his "sunnah" or lifestyle. And his followers do follow the example of this warrior "prophet", who made no prophecies. In the last century, the cruel Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini married a ten-year old girl, when he was 28 years old. This "mad Ayatollah" called marriage to a prepubescent girl a "divine blessing". He is quoted to have said to fellow Muslims; "Do your best to ensure your daughters do not see their first blood in your house".
The following is the story of Safiyah Bint Huyeiy Ibn Akhtab, the Jewish woman who was captured when Muhammad’s troops attacked Kheibar and brought her to the Prophet as part of his share of the booty. This story, is reported in the Book of Tabaqat Safiyah was seventeen and very beautiful when Muslims killed her father, husband and many of her relatives. In the same day the Prophet of Allah wanted to sleep with her. Here is the exact text of the story:
She was groomed and made-up for the Prophet by Umm Sulaim, the mother of Anas ibn Malik. They spent the night there. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari guarded the tent of the Prophet the whole night. When, in the early dawn, the Prophet saw Abu Ayyub strolling up and down, he asked him what he meant by this sentry-go; he replied: "I was afraid for you with this young lady. You had killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives, and till recently she was an unbeliever. I was really afraid for you on her account". The Prophet prayed for Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (Ibn Hisham, p. 766) Safiyah had requested the Prophet to wait till he had gone a stage away from Khaibar. "Why?" asked the Prophet. "I was afraid for you on account of the Jews who still happened to be near at Khaibar!"
The reason Safiyah rejected the sexual advances of the 57-year-old Muhammad should be obvious to any objective person. I believe most women prefer to mourn than jump into bed with the killer of their father, husband and many relatives on the same day of their death. But the fact that the prophet of Allah could not contain his sexual urges for one day to let this young girl grieve, says a lot of his thinking and moral character.
“The next day a Walima (we dding-feast) was arranged on behalf of the Prophet…
Note that the historian is saying that the wedding took place one day after the prophet got private with Safiyah and made his moves to have sex with her. This presented no problem for the Muhammad as he had his Allah reveal a verse personally agreeable to himself saying it is okay to sleep with women captured in war without marrying them even if they are married.
Non-consent forced Marriages in Islam:
What a disgraceful and degrading thing a temporary, contractual marriage is for a woman! This is something which Muhammad made lawful according to all the scholars and chroniclers without exception. What an insult to a woman whom Muhammad stripped of her humanity and dignity in order to become a mere instrument for man’s enjoyment!
Islamic law has codified this principle of non-consent for under-age women based on Muhammad’s precedent:
“A father may give consent to have his young virgin daughter married without obtaining her permission, for she does not have a choice, exactly as Abu Bakr El Sadiq did to his daughter Aisha, when she was six years old. He married her to the prophet Muhammad without her permission.”
In the history below I simply am citing well know facts about the Koran, the Hadiths, the pre-Islamic history of Mecca, and what is claimed by the Muslims themselves to be known concerning the life and activities of Muhammad.
When Muhammad first started screaming from the rooftops that he alone had the divine word of God, the people of Mecca ignored him. However, when he started insulting and defaming the religion of the peace loving Meccans, they couldn't take it anymore and tried persuading him to stop. Muhammad the coward was too scared of the growing hostility against him and instead of calling upon his Allah to strike down the Meccans, he crept out of the city one night and fled for his life.
Ever since that incident, Muhammad was determined to take revenge on the Meccans. He escaped to Medina, which had a sizeable Jewish population, and started plotting his revenge with a small gang of criminals. This was the beginning of Muhammad's trail of violence, hatred and bloodshed that would soon destroy the once flourishing culture of Arabia.
The story of Muhammad and Islam has been documented in detail by his Islamic biographers (see above). The documentation includes surprise raids by Muhammad and his Muslims on trade caravans and tribal settlements while Muhammad commanded. The use of plunder was thus obtained for recruiting an ever growing army of greedy desperados, and assassinations of opponents. They practiced blackmail, expulsion and massacre. Some of these so called “peaceful” campaigns documented were the massacre of the Jews of Medina, attack and enslavement of the Jews of Khayber, rape of women and children, sale of these victims after rape, trickery, treachery and bribery employed to their fullest extent to grow the numbers of his new Islamic religion which ironically was supposed to mean 'Peace'! Muhammad organized no less than 86 expeditions of rape, plunder and murder; 27 of which he led himself. In 9 of these, he fought himself on the battlefield.
The motives of the converts to Islam was never in any doubt. As David S. Margoliouth states in his book "Muhammad and the Rise of Islam":
Islam became a good living, making its soldiers rich:
'Of any moralizing or demoralizing effect that Muhammad's teaching had upon his followers we cannot say with precision. When he was at the head of the Robber community, it is probable that the demoralizing influence began to be felt; it was then that men who had never broken an oath learnt that they might evade their obligations, and that men to whom the blood of their clan had been as their own, began to shed it with impunity in the 'cause of god'. And that lying and treachery in the cause of Islam received divine approval. It was then too that Muslims became distinguished by the obscenity of their language. It was then too, that the coveting of goods and wives possessed by Non-Muslims was avowed without discouragement from the Prophet....'
Muhammad justified his crimes with divine revelation:
The details of all his criminal onslaughts in the form of battles and assassinations are chronicled in this article in a chronological manner. One should note that every time the 'Apostle of Peace' committed one of his criminal onslaughts, he always justified the crimes by quickly claiming a 'divine revelation' which conveniently removed the blame from his bloodied hands. These convenient Suras are detailed immediately below the description of the incident.
1) Massacre of unarmed merchants during sacred month
Date: Late January (Rejeb), 623 A.D.
Victims: 4 Merchants from Quraysh tribe of Mecca, the Tribe to which Muhammad himself belonged
Four UNARMED merchants were traveling to Mecca to sell their goods consisting of raisins, honey and animal skins. It was the holy month of Rejeb which was considered sacred for trade in Arabia. It was a point of honor that any form of warfare or violence was strictly forbidden in this month. Muhammad's gang attacked the helpless men from behind and stabbed two of them to death. They plundered all the goods as booty and Muhammad got one fifths of the share.
This shows the utter lack of morals or scruples on Muhammad's part. The Prophet of Islam did not possess a shred of pity or kindness, or the slightest sense of justice. He cold-bloodedly murdered two innocent people who had never done him any harm and did not even know him! All this was done in a month that the Prophet himself declared was a sacred month in which no warfare should take place. Muhammad was obviously motivated by nothing but hatred and greed.
Conveniently divine revelations came down from Allah that absolved him of all the guilt.
Koran (Qur'an) 2:216
'Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you knew not.'
Here Muhammad is completely removing all blame from himself, for having started the fighting. The most insidious and devilish implication of this verse is that Allah is completely justifying Muhammad's murder of the innocent Meccans. Over and above this Muhammad is conveniently implying that warfare is hateful to him, but he participated in it because it was ordained by Allah! What sacrifices the 'Apostle of Peace' had to make!
Koran (Qur'an) 2:217
'They question you (O Muhammad) with regard to warfare in the sacred month. Say: Warfare therein is a great transgression but to turn men from the way of Allah and to disbelieve in Him and the inviolable place of worship and to expel its people thence is a greater transgression, for persecution is worse than killing'
Here Allah is clearly saying that to kill or create warfare in the sacred month of Rejeb is a very grave offence, but to justify his own violation of Allah's rules, Muhammad comes up with the idea that since the people killed were unbelievers, it was perfectly okay! The reason given for the horrific murder of the innocent Meccans, is the fact that they did not believe in Muhammad's version of God. How much more tolerant and kind could the 'Great Prophet' be!
2) Slaughter of Meccans who came to defend their caravans
Date: March (Ramadan) 17, 623 A.D
Place: The well of Badr
Victims: 70 merchants from Quraysh Tribe of Mecca, The Quraysh army which came to defend them
The merchandise being carried by this caravan was worth more than 50,000 Gold Dinars. Muhammad ganged up all the criminals of Medina and set out to raid the caravan with 300 men. The Meccans got word of the raid and sent out an army to protect the caravan. Throughout the entire battle Mohammad cowered in a hut which his men made for him. There he cried and prayed with feverish anxiety. At one point he came out of the hut and threw pebbles in the enemy's direction, screaming 'Let evil look on your faces!' and 'By him who holds my soul in his hands, anyone who fights for me today will go to paradise!' The Muslims killed over two hundred and took seventy prisoners. All seventy of the prisoners were ransomed, and any prisoner who did not fetch a ransom had his head chopped off.
"People of the Pit" are all Mohammad's latest victims:
Muhammad was gratified at the sight of his murdered victims. After the battle, he sent his followers to look for the corpse of Abu Jahal, one of the Meccans who had criticized him openly. When his corpse was found they cut off the head and threw it down at Muhammad's feet. The 'Apostle of peace' cried out in delirious joy, 'Rejoice! Here lies the head of the enemy of Allah! Praise Allah, for there is no other but he! It is more acceptable to me than the choicest camel in all Arabia' The Prophet then ordered a great pit to be dug for the bodies of the innocents to be dumped. The Muslims then proceeded to hack the corpses limbs into pieces. As the bloodied mass of bodies was being thrown into the pit, a feverishly excited Muhammad screamed, ' O People of the Pit, have you found that what Allah threatened is true now? For I have found that what my Lord promised was true! Rejoice All Muslims!'. One of the prisoners taken was the defiant Al Nadr Ibn al Harith, who had earlier taken Muhammad's challenge of telling better stories than him. Muhammad ordered Ali to strike off Nadr's head in his presence, so he could watch and exult in the pleasure of beheading the man who had insulted him. Another prisoner Uqba ibn Abi Muait (aka: Ocba) was decapitated in front of the Prophet. Before being killed the prisoner cried out pitifully 'O Prophet, who will look after my children if I should die?' The 'Great Prophet of the Religion of Peace' coldly spat out 'Hellfire', as the blade came down and spattered his clothes with Uqba's blood. Muhammad continued by saying; "Wretch that thou wast! "And persecutor! unbeliever in God, in his Prophet, and in his Book! I give thanks unto the Lord that hath slain thee, and comforted mine eyes thereby."
This time Muhammad needed a revelation that would not only absolve him of all the guilt for murdering so many innocent people, but also give him the 'divine' right to get a huge share of the plundered booty. Quite a few revelations magically appeared after the battle of Badr. There was a great booty after this battle; which became a bone of contention between Muhammad and his band of thieves. Like always, when it favored Muhammad--he soon received a revelation from Allah shown in the eight Chapter of the Qur'an, titled Al-Anfal, "The Spoils of War", or "Booty", warning Muslims not to consider booty won at Badr to belong to anyone except Muhammad. Ultimately Muhammad distributed this booty and kept a fifth for himself.
This successful battle and its great booty, after years of failure and military loses (including the Battle of **Uhud in 625 AD, where the Muslims and Muhammad were routed) launched Muhammad as a force to be reckoned with. When men saw the great booty that could be gained by following Muhammad they began arriving in droves. Certain "rules of war" (doctrines of Islam) were developed by Muhammad after this Battle also; such as:
**Battle of Uhud: Muhammad himself wore two coats of mail, brandished a sword and had a tooth knocked out. Muhammad and his band were soundly defeated. Surah 3:142-143 chided those Muslims who did not obey orders at the battle of Uhud. Verse 122 addresses those Muslims who thought about deserting before this battle. It also shows us that Muhammad suddenly became aware of his own mortality, probably because of this battle. Surah 3: 137-139 warns that Muslims are to remain firm, even if Muhammad were to be killed in battle.
'O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand. '.
and also this Surah 8:67 conveniently sanctioned these assassinations: "It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land."
This Surah clearly exposes Islam to be a religion that not only encourages violence but actually makes it a sacred duty for Muslims to kill anyone who does not believe in the Muslim version of religion. Not only is the 'All forgiving Allah' exhorting his followers to kill anyone who is not Muslim, but he is also saying that all non-Muslims are so stupid that they will be unable to defend themselves and therefore deserve death!
From now on Muhammad proceeded to rid himself of opposition dangerous to him. "Even secret conversations were reported to the Prophet, and on such information he countenanced proceedings that were sometimes both cruel and unscrupulous." Muhammad next moved against the female poetess Asma bint Marwan, who had never concealed her dislike Islam, and had composed couplets on the follow of trusting a stranger who fought his own people.
Murder, rape, plunder and destruction are all perfectly fine with Allah - if done in the name of Islam
Koran (Qur'an) 8:67-68
'It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. You desire the lure of this world and Allah desires for you the hereafter and Allah is Mighty, Wise.. Now enjoy what you have won as lawful and good and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is forgiving, merciful.'
This verse is in reference to the prisoners that Muhammad held for ransom after the battle. Allah the 'Merciful' is saying that they should all have been killed! In addition, Allah is conveniently commenting that whatever loot Muhammad has plundered is 'lawful and good' because it was done in service to Allah. So murder, rape, plunder and destruction are all perfectly fine with Allah as long as they are done in the name of Islam! Muhammad is also insidiously making himself seem very kind for having spared the lives of the prisoners, when in fact he only let them live so he could get more money from the Ransom for them. In today's world this is called 'Terrorism' of the worst kind.
3) Assassination of poets who criticized Muhammad's murderous ways
Date: Late March-April, 623 A.D
Place: Medina (aka: Medinah)
Victims: Two of the most famous poets of Medina, who had the courage to criticize the murderous actions of Muhammad and his gang....
After the battle of Badr, the people of Medina were horrified that they had given refuge to such a blatant criminal and his followers in their city. Many began protesting the presence of such violent and murderous people in their city. In a free society like Pre-Islamic Arabia, the poets acted as society's conscience and were free to criticize, satirize and examine the actions of people. The two most famous poets of this kind were Abu 'Afak; an extremely old and respected poet and Asma bint Marwan; a young mother with the gift of superb verse.
Muhammad was enraged at their criticism. When he heard the verses composed by Asma Bint Marwan he was infuriated and screamed aloud, 'Will no one rid me of this daughter of Marwan!' That very night a gang of Muslims set out to do the dirty deed. They broke into the poets' house. She was lying in in her bedroom suckling her newborn child, while her other small children slept nearby. The Muslims tore the newborn infant off her breast and hacked it to pieces before her very eyes. They then made her watch the murder of all four of her children, before raping and then stabbing her repeatedly to death. After the murder when the Muslims went to inform the Prophet, he said 'You have done a service to Allah and his Messenger, her life was not worth even two goats.
A month later the distinguished and highly respected Abu Afak, who was over a hundred years old and renowned for his sense of fairness, was killed brutally in the same manner as he slept. Once again the "Prophet" had commented that morning 'Who will avenge me on this scoundrel!'
This shows us exactly how much the tolerant and peace loving Prophet respected life. Muslims claim that Muhammad was extremely gentle and loved children. Indeed the horrifying way he had Asma Bint Marwan's five infants slaughtered certainly attests to this 'loving' side of the "Prophet".
4) The Siege of the Banu Qaynuqa
Date: April, 623 A.D
Victims: The Jewish Tribe of Banu Qaynuqa
In order to get full control of Medinah, Muhammad needed to get rid of all his opponents. The strongest of these opponents was Abdallah Ibn Ubayy, a powerful chief who was allied with the Jewish Tribe of Banu Qaynuqa. This tribe was also the weakest, because they were made up of craftsmen, in particular goldsmiths. By attacking them, Muhammad knew he could plunder a huge amount of wealth and weaken Ibn Ubayy. Muhammad needed an excuse to attack them so he made a girl married to one of his followers, pretend that she had been teased by the Jews. The Muslims blockaded the fort of the Banu Qaynuqa for fifteen days until the starving Jews surrendered. Immediately, the Prophet was ready to kill them all, but Ibn Ubayy seized hold of Muhammad and protested. Muhammad's face became black with rage as he shouted 'Let go of me', but Ibn Ubayy was adamant and shouted back 'No, by God, I will not let you go until you deal kindly with my allies. 400 men without armor and 300 with, who have always supported me against enemies. And you want to slay them all in one morning! By God, If I were in your place I would fear a reversal of fortune'.
At this threat, the cowardly Muhammad turned pale, as he realized that all the people of Medinah were against him. He hit Ibn Ubayy on the face and ordered that the Jews be kicked out of their own homes. All their property was seized and looted, many of the prettiest women were taken as prisoners to become sex-slaves. Muhammad kept one-fifths of the enormous booty for himself. This is the way he repaid the kindness of the Jews of Medina, who had given him shelter and a refuge, when Muhammad had run away from Mecca in fear.
The revelations in the Eighth Surah of the Koran were clearly in reference to the Banu Qaynuqa and anyone who opposed the Muslims.
Koran (Qur'an) 8:55-57
'Lo, the worst of beasts in Allah's sight are the ungrateful who will not believe.'
'Those of them with whom you made a treaty and then at every opportunity they break their treaty and they keep not duty to Allah, If you come on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, so that they may
Here Muhammad's acts of planned terrorism against the Jewish Tribe is justified by Allah, because according to the 'Merciful' Allah, Non-Muslims are the worst of BEASTS! So it is perfectly all right to murder, rape, torture and pillage the non-believers! Not only that but Allah is advising Muhammad and the Muslims that when anyone protests against the injustices committed by Muslims, the Muslims should make sure and deal with them with such violence, that it will strike fear among anyone who may think of supporting dissent. This proves that the Koran is nothing but a political manual for controlling people with terror. Not even the fascist armies of Hitler engineered such devilish ideas.
Muhammad Permits Killing of Women and Children:
Once when Muhammd was asked if it was OK to kill the women and children of those who believed in many gods, or were infidels (non-Muslim), Muhammad said; "I consider them as of their parents." In short, he said if the parents were infidels it is permissible to kill their children. Reference: "Islam and Terrorism", Page 105.
The above are just a few of the incidents that demonstrate the intolerant and merciless nature of the inhuman acts committed by Muhammad and the Muslims.
It was Muhammad that started the fighting by attacking the Meccan caravans during a time that attacks were traditional forgone between enemies in that area.
When Muslims state that 'there is no God but Allah' and 'Muhammad is the final Prophet', they are insulting every other religion.
The spread of Islam
Islam works in much the same way as satanically-inspired communism, which is by subversive means. Islam has spread worldwide since its inception mostly by the sword and intimidation. Muslims actually call Islam themselves "Din e-Sif", or religion of the sword.
Islamic Laws are very clear - Jews and Christians have no rights whatsoever to independent existence. They can live under Islamic rule provided they keep to the rules that Islam promulgates for them. This method of conversion by the sword, intimidation and fear is one of the most convincing proofs that Islam is a pure human invention. Concomitantly, it is precisely the fact that Christianity prevailed against all the forces and powers in the world out to destroy it, by merely the force of its truth, that points to the superhuman origin of Christianity.
As Islam was introduced to the native Indonesians, the people found the religion was very adaptable to their animism and pagan beliefs. Islam did not really change the beliefs but absorbed it instead, since it did not bring something that was dramatically different than indigenous pagan beliefs.
For example, the beliefs in jinns (spirits and ghosts) and all the superstitious practices such as charms, amulets, susuk, mantras (using arabic language - no one really knows whether it is a koranic verse or not), witch doctors or shamans (dukun), and many others which are still widely practiced by the Indonesian Muslims.
On the other hand, Christianity would try to eradicate these practices, and because of this, the people were more receptive to Islam, except in some parts of Indonesia.
Then, after Islam gained stronger influence, the maulanas did use military forces to attack the Hindu and the Buddhist kingdoms in their objective to Islamize the regions, just like they did anywhere else in the world.
Have all those countless billions of souls who have followed the Qur'an been deceived by a demon pretending to be God?
Barbarians (Muslims) at the Gates - the satanic coveting - the personal slavery
Barbarians, as the great 14th-century Arab historian-philosopher Ibn Khaldun observed, have no purpose except destruction of civilized life. According to the Islamic historian Muhammad Ibn al-Rawandi; Islam is an invention for the purpose of providing a religious justification for Arab imperialism. The Conquest is the reason and explanation for Islam, not the other way around.
Although people raised in Islam are taught to follow it without question, Ibn Al-Rawandi’s conclusion is that it simply isn’t possible for an intelligent, educated Westerner to convert to such a religion without committing “mental suicide.”
Muslims have always coveted their neighbors goods, wives and property. It is no different today. Palestinians covet Israel which was Deeded to the Jews by God. Arabs have always coveted Israel, and in the Christian Gospel, they will never get their way there.
India, and many other countries around the world, were raped, pillaged, and plundered by Islam. And today it is the Islamic nations which threaten world peace.
Muslims do not hesitate to criticize 'non-believers', but then become very upset when non-believers criticize Islam. Religious freedom and freedom of speech is a two-edged sword which cuts both ways. The American freedom of speech (to criticize) and freedom of religion are deeply cherished and exercised by Americans, but such concepts of freedom are unknown and incomprehensible in Islamic societies. From 1970-2000, there were 43,721 terrorist attacks worldwide. 113, 425 people were killed. Over 82,126 injured. Over 90% of these barbaric acts were committed by Muslims.
Jesus Christ was Foretold in the Garden of Eden, foretold in the Psalms around 1000 BC, and many many more times via the prophets from 400-700 BC. See: over 360 prophecies
Jesus was born sinless, lived a sinless life and is pure of spirit. Jesus preached no hatred, and performed many miracles including raising people from the dead. Jesus gave us many prophecies. There were over 300 prophecies about the coming Messiah, written up to 1000 years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Of these 300 prophecies, 109 of them - only Jesus of Nazareth could have fulfilled. Ironically with the number 109 we have another divine hint/warning message given about Islam. In the Muslim Qur'an there are exactly 109 mentions of War. Coincidence?
A Sacrifice for us Was Necessary:But the grace of the Holy Spirit and the Lord Jesus Christ is given to Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus alike. But they must truly ask for it. It does not come without Faith.
Jesus died a sacrificial lamb for our sins on a cross in Jerusalem. He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven in front of many people. All those who have faith in him and believe are reborn of God and are saved. Nobody can truly come to Him without the Holy Spirit.
Islam offers no way to salvation. A Muslim can never be sure their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds enough for eternal life. Jesus promises those who believe that He is the Son of God who took away our sins will live forever.
(born in Jerusalem 37 A.D.) the First Century Jewish General, Traitor,
and excellent historian wrote the following about Jesus in his Antiquities (18:63), while writing for the Romans:
About this time there lived Jesus, a wise man
if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who wrought
surprising feats and was a teacher of such people as accept the truth
gladly. He won over many Jews and many of the Greeks. He was the Messiah. When Pilate, upon hearing him accused by men of the highest standing among us, had condemned him to be crucified, those who had in the first place come to love him did not cease. On the third day he appeared to them restored to life. For the prophets of God had prophesied these and myriads of other marvellous things about him. And the tribe of the Christians, so called after him, has still up to now, not disappeared. |
This above passage is known as the Testimonium Flavianum. The "Testimonium" is found in every copy of Jesusphus in existence.
In book 20, Josephus also wrote the following:
Second, in Book 20 there is what could be called a passing reference to Jesus in a paragraph describing the murder of Jesus' brother, James, at the hands of Ananus, the High Priest.
But the younger Ananus who, as we said, received the high priesthood, was of a bold disposition and exceptionally daring; he followed the party of the Sadducees, who are severe in judgment above all the Jews, as we have already shown. As therefore Ananus was of such a disposition, he thought he had now a good opportunity, as Festus was now dead, and Albinus was still on the road; so he assembled a council of judges, and brought before it the brother of Jesus the so-called Christ, whose name was James, together with some others, and having accused them as lawbreakers, he delivered them over to be stoned.

MIRACLE OF MIRACLES is a young upper class Iranian girl's stirring true testimony about how Jesus Christ found her and her husband in Tehran, and how and why they had to escape Iran to avoid execution by radical Muslims. Their crime? They converted from Islam to Christianity. Rejected by her family who she loves, and an utter outcast in her homeland, Mina and her husband made a harrowing journey across the mountains to Turkey, then to Europe, and lastly to America.
After many years, Jesus actually appeared to her father, an good-hearted elderly Muslim theologian in Iran.
