Islam The calling of Christ
Origin of Allah • Moon worship has been practiced in Arabia since 2000 BC. The crescent moon is the most common symbol of this pagan moon worship as far back as 2000 BC. • In Mecca, there was a god named Hubal who was Lord of the Kabah. • This Hubal was a moon god. • One Muslim apologist confessed that the idol of moon god Hubal was placed upon the roof of the Kaba about 400 years before Muhammad. This may in fact be the origin of why the crescent moon is on top of every minaret at the Kaba today and the central symbol of Islam atop of every mosque throughout the world: About four hundred years before the birth of Muhammad one Amr bin Lahyo ... a descendant of Qahtan and king of Hijaz, had put an idol called Hubal on the roof of the Kaba. This was one of the chief deities of the Quraish before Islam. (Muhammad The Holy Prophet, Hafiz Ghulam Sarwar (Pakistan), p 18-19, Muslim) • The moon god was also referred to as "al-ilah". This is not a proper name of a single specific god, but a generic reference meaning "the god". Each local pagan Arab tribe would refer to their own local tribal pagan god as "al-ilah". • "al-ilah" was later shortened to Allah before Muhammad began promoting his new religion in 610 AD.
The voice of threat • Christians & Jewish martyrs say; "I will die for what I believe". • A Muslim martyr says; "you will die for what I believe"....
The Muslim Qur'an and Muslim Hadith are unique among all the sacred writings in the entire world -- because they alone counsel its followers to make war on unbelievers. • Both Muslim holy books (Qur'an/Koran and Hadith) contain commands for Muslims to subjugate the world, militarily. Muhammad commanded Muslims to spread Islam through Offensive Jihad; or conquest of non-Muslim lands. Muslims are also commanded Muslims to take back any land that was formerly Muslim, such as Israel. • Radical Muslims believe that they are Mujahideen, or "holy warriors of Allah". Their goal, like Islam's goal is to establish the entire world as a pure Islamic state (a Khalifah), which conforms to Islamic laws.
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.
The Bible not accepted • 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.
Truth is Truth • 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) (Sura 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.
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.
Sura 5:68 - Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law (Torah), the Gospel (Injeel), and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.“ • Sura 29:46 Muslims are told by Allah, not to question the authority of the scriptures of the Christians, saying, "And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;
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 (Injeel) 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 clearly indicated this over 1000 years before Muhammad and Islam.
The Fear of Holy Scriptures • Even Satan says that Jesus died on the cross. Like Muhammad, Satan also cringes in fear at the sight of the cross. Read this true Exorcism here • Proverbs 30:4 (700 B.C.): "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?"(Psalm 2:11-12)Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
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.
The unchanged Bible • "They" could not have changed the Christian Gospels after Muhammad, since there are around 5,300 manuscripts of the whole or part of the Greek text of the New Testament (Injeel) 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.
The Christian Bible predates Muhammad and Islam by 500 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 preserved Bible Texts predating Mohammad and Islam • 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.
Witness of Archaeology • 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).
Islam doesn't even have an original Qur'an. It was made up supposedly from "memory" and a few scraps found under a bed. This was about 150 - 200 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.
Death of the earliest witnesses • 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)
Lost of the first script • Muhammad's child wife said this after Muhammad died: "The verse of the stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my bed. When the messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper." • 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
Scribal accuracy of the Torah • 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.
Poor preservation of Qur’an • This same quality of transmission cannot be said of the Islamic Qur'an. The Islamic Qur'an was written down from 3rd and 4th hand accounts; and from a few thoughts written on scrap papers --and compiled over 150 years after Muhammad died in 632 A.D. 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.
Make-belief Claim against Archaeological evidence • 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.
Only part of the oldest Koran survived • 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, scraps found in Yemen differ and contradict today's Qur'an so badly, that Muslims try to hide this. These Yemeni Qur'an scraps are actually the oldest found, and it is Hijazi. Hijazi (Makkan or Madinan) script, is the script in which the earliest masahif of the Qur'an were written.
The Qur'an contradicts earlier revelation, the evidence for the origin of which is given in Qur'an/Koran Suras below. • Many Muslims Imams and Mullahs falsely point to Sura 2:140 to try and prove that Jews and Christians had corrupted their Scriptures. Referring to the Jews, this sura says; "...who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah?...?" Yet, nowhere does this Sura 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.
Sovereign God protects His Words • 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.
Muhammad commanded the reading of the Holy Injeel (Gospel of Jesus) and the Torah (Taurat) as part of Islam.
- Sura 2:87 - And most certainly We gave Musa the Book and We sent apostles after him one after another; and We gave Isa, the son of Marium, clear arguments and strengthened him with the holy spirit, • - Sura 3:48 - And He (Isa/Jesus) will teach him the Book and the wisdom and the Tavrat (Torah) and the Injeel (Christian Gospel). • - Sura 3:50 - And a verifier of that which is before me of the Taurat (Torah) and that I may allow you part of that which has been forbidden t you, and I have come to you with a sign from your Lord therefore be careful of (your duty to) Allah and obey me. • - Sura 5:44 - "Surely We revealed the Taurat (Torah/Bible Old Testament) in which was guidance and light", with it the prophets who submitted themselves.... • - Sura 5:46 - And We sent after them in their footsteps Isa, son of Marium, verifying what was before him of the Taurat (Jewish Torah) and We gave him the Injeel (Christian Gospels) in which was guidance and light, and verifying what was before it of Taurat and a guidance and an admonition for those who guard (against evil).
- Sura 5.68 - Say: O followers of the Book! you follow no good till you keep up the Taurat and the Injeel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord; • - Sura 6.154: Again, We gave the Book (Torah) to Musa to complete (Our blessings) on him who would do good (to others), and making plain all things and a guidance and a mercy, so that they should believe in the meeting of their Lord. • - Sura 6.155: And this (Torah) is a Book We have revealed, blessed; therefore follow it and guard (against evil) that mercy may be shown to you. • - Sura 29:46 "And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;
- Sura 32:23 - And certainly We gave the Book to Musa, so be not in doubt concerning the receiving of it, and We made it a guide for the children of Israel.- Sura 43:63 - When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said: "Now have I come to you with Wisdom, and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) on which ye dispute: therefore fear Allah and obey me. • - Sura 46:12 we are told.... "And before it the Book of Musa (Moses) (Torah) was a guide and a mercy: and this is a Book verifying (it) in the Arabic language that it may warn those who are unjust and as good news for the doers of good......"
The Great Muslim dilemma • The Christian Bible Says Jesus is God, and one with the Father • Muslims have no choice but to believe in the Christian Bible and the Apostles who wrote it. The Qur'an forbids anyone, on pain of shameful punishment, from making distinctions between the authority of the apostles and prophets of God, or from choosing between God's words. No one is permitted to believe in part and reject a part. Those who presume to do so, it says, are infidels in reality (Suras 4:150-152; 2:89; 42:13-15; 29:46-47). See Christian Bible references to who Jesus really is. . .
ISLAM A RELIGION OF PEACE YOU SAY?What about all the "peace sounding words" in the Qur'an/Koran? • In Islam, theologians divide the Qur'an into the Meccan and Medinan suras. You will note that the peaceful sounding verses come while Muhammad was living in Mecca toward the beginning of his career as a terrorist, when he was busy calling Meccans to his service. The later suras came after Muhammad left Mecca and went to Medina. It was during this later period when he went wild with rape, plunder, and cold-hearted murders. • So in Islam --the later warring and killing of infidel type verses (suras) like the "Verse of the Sword" (9:5) take precedence over the earlier peaceful-sounding versus. Islamic theologians say that the more than 124 peaceful sounding verses are abrogated by the Verse of the Sword. This all ties in to the Muslim idea of abrogation. A respected Islamic commentator popularly know as Ibn Kathir who lived from 1301-1372 AD says that: sura 9:5 "abrogated every agreement of peace the Prophet and any idolator, every treaty, and every term"
There are more than 100 verses in the Qur'an (Koran) advocating the use of violence to spread Islam. There are exactly 123 verses in the Qur'an about killing and fighting.Qur'an 9:5, known as "the verse of the sword," declares, "Fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem."
In the Qur'an, Allah commands Muslims, "Take not the Jews and Christians as friends....Slay the idolaters [non-Muslims] wherever ye find them.... Fight against such...as believe not in Allah..." (Sura 5:51; 9:5,29,41, etc..).
A Muslim phrase often quoted in the middle east region is: “On Saturday we kill the Jews and on Sunday we kill the Christians!” • "The punishment of those who wage war against God and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;" (Sura Al Ma idah 5:33).
Killing is Welcome in Islam - even of brother Muslims • "Allah's Apostle said, "Allah welcomes two men with a smile; one of whom kills the other and both of them enter Paradise. One fights in Allah's Cause and gets killed. Later on Allah forgives the 'killer who also get martyred (In Allah's Cause)."... Hadith, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 80i, Narrated Abu Huraira • This is a very important matter. We often wonder how Muslims kill each other and both parties scream "Jihad" as they kill each other. Muhammad says that Allah is happy to see them BOTH killing each other. The cause is not the point-- just kill, kill, kill."
Satan wishes only to enslave Muslims to help him enslave the entire world • By turning them away from the truth – that salvation is already available through believing in Christ Jesus The Son of God. • By intimidation and fear – that any convert to Christ risks getting killed. • By branding of Islamic status through birth. • By brain-washing – that believers are immersed in Islam daily and nightly; mechanically praying 5 times everyday
Satan, Muhammad and al-Zawahiri all "rail" against the cross! • CAIRO, Egypt, Dec. 11, 2005 In a taped message Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged all Muslims to take up arms and said their refusal to join the fight against "the Cross and Zionism" was a "malignant illness" that would only lead to the defeat of militant Islam.
Hearing the Truth as revealed in the Christian Bible (The Word of God) would weaken this false path to God (Islam).
Salvation is available through Yeshua • The New Testament repeatedly declares that Jesus Christ(Yeshua) is the Son of God, that He was crucified and resurrected to both pay for our sins and to make possible our salvation. • The Qur'an expressly denies all these things. The Qur'an says Jesus was not crucified. (Sura 4:157-158).
Muslims are warned • If you accept Islam, you forever reject Jesus(Yeshua who is not Isa) and His substitutional sufferingand death for your sins on the cross. It is a decision that will effect where you spend eternity.
Jesus Christ warned us that if you deny Him, He will deny you before the Father(Yhwh – God). • Muslims falsely believe they have "this base" covered because they show reverence to Jesus as Isa and as a "great Prophet" only.
You "deny" Jesus/Yeshua • 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. • You deny Jesus when you do not worship Christ as Lord, sovereign God, and Savior.
Jesus is God (John 1, Col. 1) and here Raised Himself from the dead (Matthew 28:6). Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection foretold by prophets. Lived a sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21). Did numerous miracles to prove His divinity (All Gospel writers and Josephus) Cared for His enemies (Matthew 5:43-44) Held a high view of marriage and hated divorce - as God the Father does (Matt 19:7-8). Accurately prophesied many verifiable events that took place after His time (Matthew 24). Muhammad is only a man (Sura 18:110) Remains dead Nothing predicted about Muhammad. The "Comforter" was the Holy Spirit Jesus promised the apostles. Allah himself refers to Muhammad as sinful (Sura 40:55, 48:1-2). On two occasions in the Qur'an Muhammad admitted he could do no miracles (Sura 17:90-95; 3:183) Killed his enemies and anyone who disagreed with him (Sura 9:5) Commanded his adopted son to divorce his wife so that she would become his (Sura 33:36-38) Delivered only one -questionable- prophecy about the Romans winning a future battle. No date or place given. (Sura 30:1-4) Comparison between Muhammad and Jesus /Yeshua
Islam is a 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 admitsJesus 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 Passover Yeshu was hanged"....
Know JesusChrist/Yeshua • To be saved - you only have to know One name and it is NOT Allah. The name of Allah is found nowhere in "the book" (Torah or Gospels of Jesus). • The Name of God is Yhwh(I am, Yehovah) • Jesus/Yeshua means: Yehovah Saves.
Jesus died for you • Please do not avoid salvation • Please do not avoid Jesus/Yeshua
The Trinity has nothing to do with how many gods there are. It only has to do with God's nature • and the three persons/natures that make up the one God. • Christians know there is only one God, but this God has 3 persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). This is a mystery.
God the Son in the Old Covenant • (Psalm 2:11-12)Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
