The average church-goer hears the word "Islam," and thinks immediately of the middle east and terrorists, but if you ask them what differences there are between a Christian and a Muslim (one who practices Islam), you might get a couple of vague answers, but most of them don't really know anything outside of what CNN has said. Most of the time, the Christian response to Islam is disgust or anger, and understandably so, but we need to be reminded that these are men and women who have been deceived and taken advantage of, and anyone who would seek to leave the religion of Islam are often too scared of the retaliation by their Muslims neighbors, who will persecute them unto death if anyone dares convert away from Islam.
(In Saudi Arabia, leaving Islam means you go to "Chop-Chop Square," and have your head cut off; See Umberto Bacchi, "Execution Central: Soudi Arabia's Bloody Chop-Chop-Square," International Business Times, retrieved Apr 17, 2013, [http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/453240/20130403/saudi-arabia-chop-square-beheading.htm]

Though you may hear of some Muslims say this is not true, and that "Islam is a religion of peace," the Hadith (ha-deeth), which is a collection of teachings of Muhammad, states the following very clearly, so no one can misunderstand this in context:
"The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: [1] In Qisas for murder, [2] a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and [3] the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."
-Sahih Bukhari, Hadith, Vol. 9, Book 83, No. 17

"Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn 'Abbas, who said, "Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, 'Don't punish (anybody) with Allah's Punishment.' No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.'"
-Sahih Bukhari, Hadith, Vol. 4, Book 52, No. 260

Converts away from Islam being killed is often reported by the media to be "radicals" or "extremists," but this is a lie. It is the fundamentalist Muslims who are killing those who convert from Islam because they are doing what they have been taught to do in their own religious texts.

This core teaching is revealed when viewers of a Muslim talk show enter their response in a live poll concerning what they believe:
@0:15 - "What is the best way to deal with apostates who converted from Islam? You have three possible responses. The first is through dialogue only. The second option is killing them. and the third option is to leave it up to the legal system. Enter your votes, send in your answers, and the results will appear on the screen."
Leaving it up to the legal system means they will be executed; they just get a trial first.

@4:30 - "Remember that if you want to convert from Islam, you will be punished by death."
@7:00 - "Islam... is the only reasonable and convincing religion. But what if a person is not convinced? Then there is something wrong in his head... Anybody who is insane should go to a mental asylum, or else, if he is insane, his head should be removed so that it does not contaminate the heads of others."

THE FINAL POLL RESULTS:
Does a Muslim have liberty to leave Islam? 76% said "No."
51% viewers polled said he/she must be killed.
40% said legal system, and Muslim law means execution.
(That means 91% that say 'death to apostates!')

This is not some extremist teaching; this is what they are taught from the Qur'an (koo-rahn) and the Hadith, that is what they are taught by their elders, and that's why the young people in the audience believe it. It is Islam itself that is the problem.

The burden of the Muslim is heavy, as we will see in this article when we cover how, in the teachings of their religion, they are forced to lie, cheat, murder, steal, and abuse in order to follow Allah. It is frightening despair to many that are born into Muslim families and forced into Islam against their will.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
-Matthew 11:28

(Man raised Muslim converts away from Islam to the Lord Jesus Christ, and his mother hires a Muslim hit-man to kill him. He survives being thrown off the fourth floor balcony of a shopping mall, but holds no ill-will towards his family, and prays daily that their eyes would be opened.)

(Seventeen-year-old girl from Ohio ran away from her Muslim home after being saved by the Lord Jesus Christ because her father was threatening to kill her. She constantly fears for her life because "Allah" demands her blood for an honor killing.)

If the Muslim seeing this refuses to read this article, at least know that Jesus Christ offers you a way out.

Before we begin, I would like to say how surprisingly difficult it is to find proper Christian representation on this issue. Certainly, there are plenty of Christian articles, sermons, and debates out there, but in this author's opinion, most church-goers have done a lousy job at presenting the facts simply and clearly where anyone can understand them. Many of the "Christian" representatives are also new-agers, trying to soften this issue with a "let's all get along," or "it's great we're all having dialogue" public-relations style of approach that supports the ecumenical fantasy that Islam is "peaceful." It is my hope that this article will help some of you understand the basics of Islam, and be able to talk with Muslims about the core issues of salvation, while properly standing on Biblical foundation.

Though some Christians may find Muslims scary to confront because of all the strange terms and unfamiliar documents involved, and of course the terrorist-style teachings many of them have adopted against non-Muslims, and the potential threats they generally make against anyone who speaks out against their pagan god, the simple way to approach any Islamic man/woman is to remember that they have a works-based religion, and that in the end, they are afraid. There is no reason for a Bible-believing, born-again Christian to fear talking with those of Islam. After all, our salvation is secure in the Lord Jesus Christ, which no man can match with all his works, and no man can take away with threats and persecution. The pagan god they call "Allah," the false prophet Muhammad, and the Qur'an cannot be fully trusted by those who believe in them, and despite the mantras Muslims keep saying to themselves over and over, many are sorely afraid and burdened in despair.



 

Muhammad is called the "Prophet of Islam," or the "Messenger of Allah," and Muslims have been feared by the public in controversy over modern-day mainstream media depictions of him. For example, the TV show Southpark ran an episode in which they tried to display an image of their drawn version of Muhammad, and numerous death threats came from the Muslim fanatics.

"A Muslim convert from Brooklyn pleaded guilty Thursday to using a website he founded to post online threats against the creators of the 'South Park' television show and others he deemed enemies of Islam... [He] admitted that his now-defunct Revolution Muslim website served as an outlet for al-Qaida propaganda and that he used the site to post thinly veiled threats not only against 'South Park' creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, but others he considered to be enemies of Islam."
-Huffington Post, "Operator of Radical Muslim Site To Plead Guilty For 'South Park' Threat," Feb 9, 2012, retrieved Apr 13, 2013, [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/09/south-park-muslim_n_1264912.html]

After the television polls we saw in the introduction to this article, it should be no surprise that these types of responses come from Muslims:
"Depictions of Muhammad are forbidden according to Islamic tradition. The famous Danish cartoons of the prophet published in 2005 prompted riots across the Arab world in which more than 200 people were killed. The newspaper and the cartoonist also received multiple death threats."
-Melanie Lidman, "Former Hamas Man to 'Tell Truth' About Muhammad," The Jerusalem Post, June 20, 2012, retrieved Apr 13, 2013, [http://www.jpost.com/Features/In-Thespotlight/Former-Hamas-man-to-tell-truth-about-Muhammad]

These threats are taken seriously for a reason: because Muslims tend to act on them. I used to work security at a sports arena where they would sometimes have religious events, and there was a Muslim mosque just a block away, so we kept an eye out for any suspecious activity during those events for obvious reasons.

Since most church-goers don't know anything about Muhammad, let's find out a little bit about him to see what all the fuss is about:
Muhammad, born in Mecca around 570 A.D., is said to be the prophet and founder of Islam. Between the age of 40-45, Muhammad claimed that the angel Gabriel appeared to him and told him "you are the messenger of God."
Muhammad began spreading his new religion to the scattered clans across the middle east, gaining more followers everywhere he went. Mecca, the place where Muhammad was born, became the direction to which muslims must pray, and the place to where pilgramages must be made.
(See "Muhammad," Islam - Empire of Faith, PBS, retrieved Apr 13, 2013, [http://www.pbs.org/empires/islam/profilesmuhammed.html])

"Muhammad was six when he was orphaned. His grandfather took him, and he was looked after by a slave girl in his grandfather's household. Two years later, when Muhammad was eight, his grandfather died, and he was placed in the charge of his uncle Abu Talib,"
-Richard A. Gabriel, Muhammad: Islam's First Great General, University of Oklahoma Press, 2014, p. 55, ISBN: 9780806182506; Gabriel is a historian and professor at Daniel Webster College with forty published books.

Muhammad's uncle raised him into adulthood, training him in his trade, and through caravaning, he came in contact with many various people from around the country, and occasionally from foreign lands.

When he was 25, Muhammad married a very wealthy 40-year-old widow named Khadija. He remained married to her, and only her, until she died at the age of 64. It was not until after her death that he began to take on many wives, until he had accumulated between nine and thirteen wives, depending on who is numbering them as wife, concubine, or slave girl.

Soon after this, Muhammad began to recite teachings that are known today as the Qur'an:
"When was the text of the Qur'an finalized? This question is complicated by the traditional belief that the Prophet Muhammad was illiterate,"
-Carl W. Ernst, Following Muhammad: Rethinking Islam in the Contemporary World, University of North Carolina Press, 2004, p. 95-96, ISBN: 9780807855775; Ernst is a professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

There has never been any evidence that Muhammad could read or write, which is why the Qur'an and the Hadith are written by other men who claimed to have listened to Muhammad's words and wrote them down. Since they weren't written by the actual person who was supposedly the prophet, you will notice many Muslims argue "interpretation" of the writings, which mimics many of the new-age church buildings in America today. Someone would listen to Muhammad, and then quickly grab whatever was available, stones, bones, palm leaves, or any other random object available, and etch into them the prophet's words, which would already make the Qur'an itself a very sketchy book, leaving us extremely uncertain to whether there are doctrines that were not written properly, doctrines missing, or doctrines made up by someone else.

"Muhammad's reticence during those first few years kept this a small group of about thirty to forty people who referred to themselves as Muhammad's Companions, for at this point, that was all they were. As far as everyone else in Mecca was concerned, Muhammad's message and his Companions were best ignored."
-Reza Aslan, No God But God: The Origins and Evolution of Islam, Ember, 2012, p. 37, ISBN: 9780385739764; Aslan has studied religion in many major universities around the U.S. and is a professor in writing at UC Riverside.

For the few years of his time as a self-proclaimed "prophet," Muhammad only had a handful of followers who were mostly laughed at, and sometimes persecuted. Around 613 A.D., Muhammad got word that the city of Yathrib (Jewish city slaughtered and later renamed Medina; 300 miles north of Mecca) needed a leader, and they suggested that Muhammad take the position in exchange for them converting to his new-found religion and following him as a prophet.
-M. H. Haykal, Life of Muhammad, The Other Press, 1994, p. 164, ISBN: 9789839154177; See also "Life of the Prophet Muhammad," Religion Facts, retrieved Apr 16, 2013, [http://www.religionfacts.com/islam/history/prophet.htm]

In his final years, knowing that conversion would not happen by peaceful talks and reason, Muhammad's Medina went to war. In 630 A.D., Muhammad finally acheived his long-term goal of overpowering Mecca, claiming it for Islam, and died in 632, poisoned by a woman whose husband Muhammad had killed. Over the next 100 years, Muslims marched a path of blood and war into countries around the middle east and beyond.



 

Though studying Islam can be confusing to many Christians because of all the various topics and arguments flying back and forth, there is really only one thing you need to remember: Islam is a works-based religion. All the other topics take a back seat to this one. Just like most pagan religions and cults, Islam requires that you must do what they consider to be "good deeds," or you can't get to heaven.

"Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve."
-Qur'an, Surah 2:62, Sahih International (see also 5:69)

Ignoring the obvious false statements, like those who work righteousness in Islam will not grieve (easily be proven false), and the obvious contradiction that a Christian can believe in the false god "Allah" and still be a Christian, the point we want to focus on is that according to the Qur'an, you must work righteousness of the law in order to justify yourself as a good person and earn a spot in heaven, but the Bible teaches us something completely different:

Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
-Acts 13:38-39

But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
-Romans 4:5-7

The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
-Psalm 14:2-3

The Bible clearly tells us that we will not be able to work ourselves a ticket to heaven, but Islam teaches the opposite. According to the Qur'an, you cannot be forgiven by Allah unless you work righteousness.

"To those who believe and do deeds of righteousness hath Allah promised forgiveness and a great reward."
-Qur'an, Surah 5:9, Sahih International

"And He answers those who believe and do good deeds, and gives them more out of His grace; and [as for] the unbelievers, they shall have a severe punishment."
-Qur'an, Surah 42:26; This specific translation is from Abdullah Yusuf Ali, Holy Qur'an, Castrovilli Giuseppe, p. 236

And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
-Romans 11:6


(Read "Is Repentance Necessary?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

The Bible tells us that grace and works is a black and white issue, where any grace involved means it cannot be works, and any works involved means it cannot be grace. If you have to "do good deeds" in order to get "His grace," then it is not grace. If you did good deeds, then you are owed a laborer's wages, but grace is something that you did not earn and do not deserve. The Qur'an quotation above makes no sense when Allah is said to award grace in exchange for good deeds, but that is not grace, that is a wage for work.

"Salvation of any individual is not attained only through faith; righteous deeds as the sign of sincerity in faith also help save the soul. Merely saying, "I believe" yet failing to comply with all the commandments of religion does not lead any man to salvation. Allah (SWT) is absolutely clear on this issue:"
-Iftikhar Ahmed Mehar, PhD, Al-Islam, AL-ISLAM, 2003, p. 209, ISBN: 9781410732729

"[D]o many righteous deeds, so that Allaah may accept your repentance and turn your bad deeds (sayi'aat) into good deeds (hasanaat)."
-Muhammad Saed Abdul-Rahman, Islam: Questions and Answers - Part 5, MSA Publication Limited, 2004, p. 281, ISBN: 9781861794512

Some Muslims object to this, claiming that the teaching of Muhammad says that salvation is by grace alone, and will often quote from Abu Huraira, who is claimed to be a direct witness of Muhammad:
"I heard Allah's Apostle saying; "The good deeds of any person will not make him enter Paradise"
-Sultan Ahmad, Islam in Perspective, AuthorHouse, 2011, p. 144, ISBN: 9781449039936; Ahmad has taught for almost 40 years at various universities in Bangladesh.

So good deeds gets you access to heaven, but you can't go to heaven by your good deeds? I sense a serious contradiction here.

Salvation through faith alone is not what the Qur'an teaches:
"O you who believe! If you are careful of (your duty to) Allah, He will grant you a distinction and do away with your evils and forgive you; and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace,"
-Qur'an, Surah 8:29; This specific translation is from Abdullah Yusuf Ali, Holy Qur-an, Castrovilli Giuseppe, p. 80

Again, you must do good deeds to get forgiveness in Islam:
"But those who believe and do righteous deeds - We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide forever."
-Qur'an, Surah 4:57, Sahih International

"And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein by permission of their Lord; and their greeting therein will be, 'Peace!'"
-Qur'an, Surah 14:23, Sahih International

Salvation through faith alone is not what Muslim priests (imam khatib) and authors teach:
"According to Islam, salvation is acquired by performing good deeds, not through the mediation of a savior. Salvation will be the reward for those who believe in one God and follow His commandments. Muslims do not believe that salvation is dependent upon the following incorrect beliefs: Ressurection of Jesus; Believeing that Jesus was the son of God; Through confessing sins"
-Arshad Khan, Islam 101: Principles and Practice, iUniverse, 2003, p. 146, ISBN: 9781469719252; Khan teaches at the University of California.

Question For Muslims:
Sunnis and Shias differ over political views, not religious ones, so their Islamic beliefs are the same. When a Sunni blows himself up to destroy a Shia mosque, the Sunnis say he goes directly to heaven, but the Shias say he goes directly to hell. When a Shia blows himself up to destroy a Sunni mosque, the Shias say he goes directly to heaven, but the Sunnis say he goes directly to hell. To say that they're both right is not only a contradiction, it would also mean Allah wants Muslims to kill themselves. So which act was the "good deed" according to Allah?

Do you remember at the beginning of this section when we read Surah 2:62 that said the Christians can believe in Allah and go to heaven? In the Qur'an, Allah says that Jesus was a prophet, but was not the Son of God. How is it possible to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God (Christian), and not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God (Muslim) at the same time? This is another clear contradiction that demonstrates the Qur'an is just another man-made document that doesn't make sense.

"Based upon the preponderance of good or bad deeds, a person will be sent to heaven or hell."
-Arshad Khan, Islam 101: Principles and Practice, iUniverse, 2003, p. 146, ISBN: 9781469719252; Khan teaches at the University of California.

"Inasmuch as sin in the Qur'an does not include a taint of nature, but only a proneness to wrong actions due to the weakness of man, its conception of salvation does not include the element of regeneration... The Conditions of Salvation -- These are Repentance, Faith and Good Works, the last branching out into the five religious duties. 'Such as repent, believe and act aright, these [i.e. people doing these works] shall enter Paradise'"
-H. U. Stanton, The Teaching of the Qura'an, Biblo & Tannen Publishers, 1969, p. 57, ISBN: 9780819602534

The "element of regerneration" is the concept that we are dead in our sin and must be born-again; to be regenerated from a fallen state, but as this author so accurately stated, this concept is not found in the teaching of the Qur'an. That means Muslims believe they are worthy of heaven automatically, and simply need to do a few "good deeds" to earn a ticket. Students of Islam are taught that good deeds will make them good people, and that is the same lie of almost all false religions.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
-Romans 3:23

Many American Muslims try to convince people that "Allah" and the Christian God of the Bible are one and the same. Anyone who studies this out will see clear black and white opposites between the false idol "Allah" and the Lord God.

"And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect [that] 'I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together.'"
-Qur'an, Surah 32:13, Sahih International; A 'jinn' is a genie, and in Islam, Satan is supposed to be a genie that, as we will see later in this article, pees and farts in the nose

This "Allah" of Islam has clearly stated that he could have brought every person to heaven, but he instead chose to fill up hell with people instead. This is not the character of the Christian God of the Bible:

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

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
-2 Peter 3:9

Certainly, the Christian God of the Bible will send people to eternal punishment in hell because all men have sinned and come up short, but He has taken it upon Himself and made a way for us to be given the free gift of salvation, if we repent to, and believe on, the Lord Jesus Christ. If we reject Christ and grace, we are still left with the debt of eternal punishment for sin, and we must pay the full penalty somehow; either on our own, or God pays it for us. However, "Allah" does not want all to repent, and according to the Qur'an, he purposefully leads men astray so he can fill up hell with them.

With "Allah", there are no guarantees, but with the promises of the Christian God of the Bible, He makes it very clear:

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
-John 6:37

I was visiting an Islamic website that had a section called "Random Wise Islamic Sayings," and one of them said:
"Follow up a bad deed with a good deed, to cancel it out."
-Username KING-slave of ALLAH, "Quotes and Wise Saying from Quran: Islam A Message of Peace," ISLAM - World's Greatest Religion, retrieved Apr 20, 2013, [http://islamgreatreligion.wordpress.com/]

There is no court system on the planet that operates that way. That's trying to make your good deeds out-weigh your bad deeds. That is like a Muslim being brought before a judge for murder, and he says, "Judge, you wouldn't punish me; I only murdered one person. Look at all the people I didn't murder!" It does not matter how many good deeds you have done in your life, it only takes one crime to reap punishment, it only takes one sin to reap judgment, and (just like the Catholics, Mormons, and Jehovah's Witnesses) the "children of Allah" are in trouble because no one knows how many "good deeds" have to be done to get to heaven.

As a Christian... what do I say to a Muslim?

Due to the influence of new-age false religion that feigns itself as "christianity," the big mistake people make when approaching Muslims is to talk about Jesus first thing. When Christ Himself approached people, He didn't come up to them and tell them He was the savior there to pay for their sins, but rather, He gave them the law:

And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?... Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.
-Luke 18:20

This was not said to the man in order to get him to start following the law, but to realize that he was guilty of breaking these laws, even though he believed he wasn't.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
-Romans 3:23

Because Islam is a works-based religion, they think the works they do will earn them a place in heaven, and when you ask a Muslim if he's a good person, he'll typically say, "Yes." At this point, you can ask him if he's ever told a lie in his life:

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
-Exodus 20:16

Muslims believe in the prophet Moses, and when he admits to telling a lie, he is immediately he's caught in his contradition that on the one hand, he believes he's a good person, but on the other hand, he admits to being a liar.

When a Christian decides to first start to talk about Jesus without mentioning the law, they'll get caught in a useless and endless debate on the differences between the "jesus" of the Qur'an (which we'll discuss later in this article) and the Christian God of the Bible. But a man can't be saved until he realizes he's lost, and so talking about the law first, just as Christ did, is the only thing that will put them into a state of repentance where they can come to the foot of the cross.

But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
-Galatians 3:23-24

Until they are in a state of humility where they begin to ask, "What can I do then?" That's the time to talk about the Christian God of the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ and the cross. Most of evangelism is being patient in taking the time bring people to a state of godly sorrow so they can be saved, and this can be done for Mormons, Muslims, Jehovah's Witnesses, Catholics, and all false religions that teach a works-based philosophy.

According to Allah, Muslim families must not only capture and execute non-Muslims, but also kill anyone who offers support to non-Muslims in any way. Specifically, the Qur'an teaches that anyone who believes in Allah, even children, should cut off the fingers of those who do not believe.

"[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, 'I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.'"
-Qur'an, Surah 8:12, Sahih International

This is why there is so much violence connected to Islam; the basic tenants of their religion teaches them to slaughter others. In major countries around the world, Islam is a minority, but it is slowly growing, so what do you think will happen when they become a majority?

"Three Muslim converts in London pleaded guilty on Monday to charges of confiscating alcohol, attacking and threatening to stab non-Muslims in attempts to impose Islamic Sharia law on the UK capital... they pleaded guilty on several charges of physical assault and death threats, all the while refusing instructions to stand in court."

Again, this not extremism -- this is fundamentalist Islam; what their doctrines directly teach Muslims to do. And examples of this violence is not hard to find, for example, the following report was published the very morning I was doing editing work on this section of this article.

"Al-Shabaab terrorists interrogated students whether they were Christian or Muslim as they went door-to-door during this morning's early morning massacre at a Kenyan university, killing at least 15 people... Mr Wetangula said he could hear the gunmen interrogating fellow students hiding inside their rooms about their religion. He said: 'If you were a Christian you were shot on the spot. With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.'
The soldiers took him and approximately 20 others to safety. As they were running, al-Shabaab snipers on top of a three-storey building attempted to gun them down."
-F. Coletta & S. Lee, "Are You Christian or Muslim?

These were just the initial reports because, after a few hours of research for this article, I went back to take a look and the death toll had increased dramatically:
"Up to 150 people have been murdered by al-Shabaab terrorists who stormed a Kenyan university and shot and beheaded Christians in the worst attack in the country in 17 years... The death toll rose to 147 tonight and the siege ended, according to the country's disaster response agency. A total of 79 were injured and 587 were led to safety."

Lee, "Up to 150 Killed in Kenyan University Massacre Following Al-Shabaab Easter Week Raid: Terrorists 'Behead' Christian Students in Worst Attack in Country in 17 Years," Daily Mail, Apr 2, 2015, retrieved Apr 2, 2015, [dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3022586/Masked-gunmen-launch-attack-morning-prayers-Kenyan-university.html]

The Christian says: "I will die for my faith in Jesus Christ."
The Muslim says: "YOU will die for my faith in Allah."

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
-2 Corinthians 10:3-5

The Bible teaches us that we are NOT to war against others with carnal weapons of the flesh, because the Kingdom of Christ is not of this world.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
-John 18:36

The Qur-an, however, teaches Muslims to use the carnal weapons of war to cause pain to non-Muslims:
"Indeed, those who disbelieve in Our verses - We will drive them into a Fire. Every time their skins are roasted through We will replace them with other skins so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted in Might and Wise."
-Qur'an, Nisa, 4:56, Sahih International

Despite what the Qur'an teaches here, Middle-East "experts" on TV lie to the media and public. Concerning the alleged burning of the Jordanian pilot (which was analyzed by many media sources and found to be fake), the following report was made:
"In the execution of Kasasbeh, ISIS departed from its usual approach of beheading a captive: It burned Kasasbeh alive in a metal cage and filmed it. Aside from the unremitting cruelty of this act, for nearly all Muslims, it is also close to sacrilege. 'Burning someone alive is absolutely barbaric, and it is expressly forbidden in Islam,' Emma El-Badawy, a Middle East expert from the University of Exeter, told Sky News, a UK-based news station. The Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference in response to the act, where Nihad Awad, the national director, called it 'unspeakable and anti-Islamic.'"
-Jenna McLaughlin, "Islamic Teachings Explicitly Forbid Death by Burning, But ISIS Did It Anyway," Mother Jones, Feb 5, 2015, retrieved Apr 2, 2015, [motherjones.com/politics/2015/02/why-burning-worse-beheading-muslims]

These people are lying. Burning someone alive is called "Islamic fundamentalism" because sticking to the teachings of Muhammad, like Nisa 4:56, is sticking to the fundamentals of Islam. According to Islam teaching, those who say that burning people alive is "unspeakable and anti-Islamic" are liars and heretics.

The Bible tells us that we are blessed when we are persecuted:

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
-Matthew 5:11

But the Qur-an teaches Muslims that it is better to kill those who persecute them:
"Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors. And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah [persecution] is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al-Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers... Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors."
-Qur'an, Surah 2:190-193, Sahih International

For the moment, let's ignore the face that torturing/killing others and being without transgression at the same time is a clear a contradiction, and also persecuting others for persecution is also a contradiction, consider that if a Muslim family moves into a foreign country, and the country expels that Muslim family, it is their duty to Allah to kill and/or expel all the inhabitants of that foreign country. Allah is giving the Muslim rights to kill all the habitations of the earth, and that is clear to anyone who sits down and reads the Qur-an seriously.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
-Matthew 5:44

Remember, if you are a Muslim, it is your duty to hate and kill, and if you don't like that, Allah tells you to suck it up and do it anyway:
"Fighting has been enjoined upon you, while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not."
-Qur'an, Surah 2:216, Sahih International

The theological thinking for suicide bombers and terrorists are set forth in the Qur'an, despite how many Muslims want to try and convince the world that they are "peaceful." Not only is mass death and destruction encouraged, but rewarded according to the teachings of Muhammad:
"So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory - We will bestow upon him a great reward."
-Qur'an, Surah 4:74, Sahih International

Muslims will say that Christians like me lie about them, and that this is only talking about self-defense, but I can read the Qur'an myself, thank you. Is encouragement to stay the course in pursuing one's enemy considered self-defense?
"And do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. If you should be suffering - so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they expect not. And Allah is ever Knowing and Wise."
-Qur'an, Surah 4:74, Sahih International

If someone breaks into your house in the middle of the night and you shoot them with a shotgun, it's self-defense. However, is it self-defense if the criminal runs away from your home in broad daylight and you chase him down the street with your shotgun?
(Read "Can Christians Kill in Self-Defense?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Is intent to destroy a city self-defense? Is it self-defense when Muslims destroy with complete destruction?
"And when We intend to destroy a city, We command its affluent but they defiantly disobey therein; so the word comes into effect upon it, and We destroy it with [complete] destruction."
-Qur'an, Surah 17:16, Sahih International

These acts of violence and destruction are considered good deeds that will earn Muslims their way to heaven, despite what some try to lead us to believe. The Qur'an is very clear on this, and you don't need a Muslim guru to tell you what this says: You can read it for yourself. Though the Hebrews were given sanction by God to go into the land He preserved for them and to exterminate those who would not leave, He did so only in the boundaries of Israel to keep and protect His people from wicked nations that were full of disgusting and demonic pagan practices, and that ended with the death and ressurection of our Lord Jesus Christ, but Muhammad created a religion of peoples who are trying to claim a right that was never theirs to begin with, and being deceived, Muslims spread hatred and death to every nation around the world.



 

A website called ISLAM - World's Greatest Religion has propaganda cartoons designed to make people think that Islam is peaceful, and that Muslims are like everyone else. Here is one of their cartoons:
-Username KING-slave of ALLAH, "Quotes and Wise Saying from Quran: Islam A Message of Peace," ISLAM - World's Greatest Religion, retrieved Apr 20, 2013, [http://islamgreatreligion.wordpress.com/]

There are a number of problems with the implications made in this cartoon: first, a child dedicating himself to a subject is not necessarily a good thing. A child could devote himself to Satanism, but that would not be good, and it doesn't mean it would grow his potential and talent.

Second, I have never heard anyone say that a child of Islam is hopeless, but I have heard many (myself included) say that a child who is dedicating himself to Islam is indoctrinated in a pagan religion that will teach him to murder and pillage. However, none of this matters to the Muslim website because any lie is acceptable, so long as that lie promotes their pagan "Allah."

The following video is a TV show for Muslim kids called "The Children's Club," similar to Seasame Street or The Mickey Mouse Club, and this will provide direct evidence to what I just stated. Read the English subtitles translated on the video and see what these talented children are dedicating themselves to (and this is a U.S. government-funded program):

Little girl singing the song she was taught on the show @0:38 - "Oh, my sister, sing constantly, about my life as a suicide warrior, each and every part of your soil, I have drenched with all my blood, And we shall march as warriors of Jihad."

Little girl says @1:30 - "My heartfelt conviction is to launch a Jihad (holy war)."

Young boys singing together in classroom @1:33 - "The youth will be victorious, We are ready with our guns, Revolution until victory!"

Little girl yelling @2:00 - "Lend your hands to justice and to Jihad!"

Little girl singing @2:42 - "Ask from us blood - we will drench you, Ask from us our soul - we will give it to you."

Little boy singing @2:48 - "I will come at the time of drought, with my best efforts I will bring a machine gun, violence, anger, anger, anger, anger!"

Little girl singing @2:57 - "Never shall you be calm, I will return with the dawn of tomorrow, it is my heartfelt conviction to launch a Jihad."

Little boy yelling @3:30 - "When I wander into entrance of Jerusalem, I'll turn into a suicide warrior! In battledress! In battledress! In battledress! Thank you. (Other children applaud.)" (The boy who is yelling this is about six years old.)

Little boy singing @5:27 - "I come to say that we will throw them to the quiet sea, Occupier! Your day is near, then we will settle our account, we will settle our claims with stones and bullets."

Little girl screams the poem she wrote called 'The Holy Martyr' @6:17 - "I shall take my soul in my hand, and throw it into the abyss of death, On your life, I foresee my death, but I march quickly towards my death, Am I afraid? For me, life has little value because I'm returning to my Lord, and my people will know that I am a hero." (In context, this is talking about sacrificing oneself to kill Jews.)

These children are only reflecting what they are taught in their schools, and what they see in their society, but more to the point, how can anyone say "Islam is peace" with a straight face while watching these children sing about suiciding bombing non-Muslims? We have already seen many numerous verses from the Qur'an commanding Muslims to kill non-Muslims anywhere they find them, so in the end, it comes down to numbers (i.e. it comes down to who is in the majority), and when Muslims out-populate the rest of a country, the liberties of every citizen will disappear.

Muslims, and their sympathizers, will of course reject the notion of no liberty under Muslim rule, but if we want to see a live example that proves my statements, we need look no farther than Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam. If Muslims want to say that "Islam is peace," then I want to see ONE example where they have ever promoted or exercised peace in Saudi Arabia. Their history in Saudi Arabia is written on a bloody, warmongering path of the destruction, but it is hypocritically called "peace" over and over again.

"Six people were injured in a terror attack in southern Tel Aviv overnight... the attack took place near a popular Tel Aviv night club, and that the terrorist called out 'Allah Akhbar' as he stabbed people."

"Allah Akbar" means "God is the greatest" and is a Muslim phrase they commonly say when commiting suicide to kill others in the name of their god.

"Four Israelis were shot dead in their car Tuesday near the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba less than a day before Israeli and Palestinian leaders meet in Washington for a summit to announce the resumption of direct peace talks.

The Boston Marathon Bombings happened while I was in the process of writing the original draft of this article, and it has been confirmed that the two men were grouneded in Islamic teaching and occasionally visited mosques for sermons. In addition, the Washington Times reports that the two men who set off the bombs were influenced directly by a Muslim man named 'Sheikh Feiz' who "thinks Jews are pigs and women deserve to be raped." He also "regularly broadcasts sermons from al-Qaeda's spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki."
(See Eric Golub, "Boston Marathon Terrorism: The Toxic Brew of Islam and Politics," Washington Times Apr 19, 2013, [communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/tygrrrr-express/2013/apr/19/shocker-boston-marathon-terrorism-was-radical-isla/])

Not all Muslims are being blamed for these acts of terrorism, but all Muslims need to admit the truth: Most terrorists today are Muslims, and that is due solely to the teachings of Muhammad.

I previously had a video of a Muslim Cleric who was brave enough to tell the truth on international television, but the video was taken down. CNN labeled this man a "radical" cleric, but he is a true fundamentalist Muslim, and at the very least, I appreciate his honesty in telling Americans that it doesn't matter how peaceful you think Muslims are, in behind closed doors, they seek to kill all non-Muslims (which is what Sharia law would mean):
CHOUDARY "[Muslims] may say one thing to you on CNN, but I can assure you, behind your backs, in every mosque, in every community center, they are standing with their Muslim brothers and sisters, saying: We hope the Americans and British are pushed out of our countries, and we can impliment the Sharia. So this is an Islamic obligation for us to support our brothers around the world; our land is one, our war is one, our peace is one, our honor is one..."
REPORTER: "But you also want to impose Sharia law where you live, does the work of a Muslim mean imposing Sharia law on everyone who is not a Muslim, including Americans?"
CHOUDARY: "Look, the Sharia law is the divine law sent by god... it is justice for mankind, it will take mankind out of the shackles of man-made law, into the perfection and beauty of divine law. So of course I want that everywhere... surely it's a very noble thing to invite someone to a superior way of life."
REPORTER:: "Mr. Choudary, are you communicating with individuals in the United States and encouraging them to participate in attacks of this sort?"
CHOUDARY: "Of course I am."

(See CNN, "Transcripts," Oct 29, 2010, retrieved May 9, 2016, [edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1010/29/ps.01.html]; See also World Net Daily, "Muslim Leader Recruits Americans For Jihad," Nov 10, 2010, retrieved May 9, 2016, [wnd.com/2010/11/226437])

At least there is some honesty from Choudary, admiting that many Muslims are saying one thing to our face, and another to our backs. And again, the Qur'an teaches Muslims this behavior:
"Surely, the gates of Paradise are under the shadows of the swords. A man in a shabby condition got up and said; Abu Musa, did you hear the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say this? He said: Yes. (The narrator said): He returned to his friends and said: I greet you (a farewell greeting). Then he broke the sheath of his sword, threw it away, advanced with his (naked) sword towards the enemy and fought (them) with it until he was slain."
-Hadith, Book 20, #4681

The entrance to heaven is gained by the edge of the sword? And they call this a religion of peace?
"Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him;"
-Hadith, Book 41, #6985

To call Islam a "religion of peace" is one of the
sickest and most sadistic lies I've ever heard.

It's also interesting to note that if you are a Christian, the Qur'an teaches you are automatically an ally of the Jew, and should be treated in the same manner as the Jew, which means Islamic law calls for Christian death as well. It also means that all the ecumenical statements from Muslims about peace with Christians and Jews are absolute lies.

"O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people."
-Qur'an, Surah 5:51, Sahih International

The Muslim will attempt to defend himself by saying there are passages of restraint in the Qur'an, but I ask what degrees of restraint exist for murder? The Muslim is called by Allah to murder Jews, but I guess you have to murder them nicely? Do you ask their permission first? Do you cut off only half their head as a warning to give them an opportunity to surrender the other half?

The website providing the propaganda images promoting Islam to be "peace," quotes the following from the Qur'an as his evidence that Islam is peaceful:
"And when you testify, be just, even if [it concerns] a near relative. And the covenant of Allah fulfill. This has He instructed you that you may remember."
-Qur'an, Surah 6:152, Sahih International

This is a verse quoted to say that Islam is peace, but that is laughable because, if you look closely, it defines justice as the covenant of Allah being fulfilled. We just read in the Hadith, Book 41, where the covenant of Allah being fulfilled means Muslims must murder all the Jews, so to the Muslim, suicide bombing Jews is just and peaceful!

"And speak to people good [words] and establish prayer and give zakah."
-Qur'an, 2:83, Surat Al-Baqarah, Sahih International

Who gets to define a "good" word? Since these things are not clearly defined in the Qur'an, the Muslims decide for themselves what is "good:"
"From Yemen to Egypt and Iraq to Indonesia, rising anger provoked by an anti-Islam film has seen protestors storm U.S. embassies in Muslim countries around the world. Chanting 'death to America', hundreds of protestors marched on the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital today, where they burned the American flag, used stones to smash windows, and set fire to cars, before breaking through the main gate of the heavily fortified compound in eastern Sana’a."
-"The Entire Muslim Middle East Shouts 'DEATH TO AMERICA!'," Now the End Begins, retrieved Apr 20, 2013, [http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=11169]

But Barack Obama insists that Islam is a religion of peace:
"Islam is a religion that preaches peace and the overwhelming majority of Muslims are peaceful."
-Barack Obama, quoted by Steve Kroft, "President Obama: What Makes Us America," CBS 60 Mintues, Sept 28, 2014, retrieved Apr 6, 2015, [cbsnews.com/news/president-obama-60-minutes]

Well, if Obama said it, it must be true, right?
Demotivational Poster Islam Peace Obama

What's hilarious about Obama's statement is that those very Muslims want Obama dead. Throughout this article, we have seen how Muslims believe that apostates must be executed, and Obama is no exception to their rules:
(NOTE: This video was recently taken down. A crowd of Muslims were yelling the following statement:)
@1:10 - "We will establish the Islamic state. Allah Akbar. By Allah, the state of Islam will be established upon the land, whether the infidels like it or not, whether the Jews like it or not, whether that apostate, what's his name, the one from American, Obama! Obama is a Muslim who has left the fold of Islam. Hence, Allah, the angels, and all the people curse him. He is a real apostate. Obama is an apostate."
(Crowd begins to chant "The apostate must be executed!")
-The Middle East Media Research Institute, Special Dispatch No. 3826, May 9, 2011, retrieved Aug 26, 2015, [memri.org/report/en/print5272.htm]
For a man to say that a particular people preach peace when those same people are calling for his execution is a complete joke. Obama simply lies to the cameras to gain political clout.

Earlier, we saw that the Qur'an teaches to "speak good words," but what are good words? How do we define good words? In the Qur'an, "good" is defined as killing Jews, killing apostates, and threating death to entire nations, so those are the words they will speak, and not only do they think they are good for doing so, but wicked hypocrites like Obama speak lies to fuel the propaganda train.

The Muslim will complain to the Christian that in the Bible, God tells the Jews to wipe out entire cities of people along with every living thing therein. God said that is His land, and that it was to be inhabited by His Chosen People, and God sent the Jews in to exterminate wicked people whom were given hundreds of years to repent of their wickedness (such as pagan rituals to burn children, etc). And today, as Christians, our Lord Jesus Christ has given Christians specific instructions not to use the carnal instruments of war, like the Muslims must do in order to follow the teachings of Muhammad. (2Cor 10:3-5) The intructions to destroy cities was specifically given for the Jews, only to select locations, and only in those regions that was the land that God had given to His people, a land which the Muslims stole from the Jews.

The Muslims will also accuse Christians of warmongering with the Crusades. The Crusaders were NOT Christians. Catholicism is not Christianity; it's paganism. The Crusades was a plan mapped out by the Catholic church in order to take Jerusalem for the devilish pope to build himself a new throne, and that goes directly against the basic teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Read "Corruptions of Christianity: Catholicism" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

The media has tried to help defend the Muslims by calling those in Saudi Arabia "extremists," but again, they are fundamentalists, not extremists. The Muslims who are blowing up civilian vehicles and buildings, both of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, are only following the direct teachings of the Qur'an. Those that call themselves "peaceful Muslims" are rejecting many numerous teachings of Muhammad, and they are the extremists because they do not follow the doctrines in the Qur'an.

Seeing the death and destruction that befall all in, and around, Muslim establishments, some Muslims want a way out, but stay in Islam out of fear for their own lives, and that of their families. The Hadith teaches:
"I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"
-Hadith, Vol. 9, Book 84, #57

Muslims learn this as children, and understand that if they leave Islam, they are likely to be killed. Muslims who realize the destructive nature of Islam, and want out, end up staying out of fear, rather than faith.



 

This is another propaganda cartoon from the Islamic website aforementioned:

Ignoring the fact that Catholicism is not part of Christianity, a woman has a CHOICE to be, or not be, a nun. Catholics don't behead their nuns for leaving the monestary. (i.e. As far as we know -- Catholic nuns have been tortured against their will; see this link for more details.) Have a Muslim woman walk down the streets in Saudi Arabia without her head covering and see how long she lives. Remember, without that head covering, it is considered a conversion away from Islam, and apostates of Islam are punished by death!

Why is the Muslim girl oppressed?
Because Muslims oppress her.

A female Muslim author wrote the following:
"To those of us who know Islam and the Qur'an, violence against women is so antithetical [opposite] to the teachings of Islam that we look at those who use our religion against us as misguided, misinformed, or malevolent. Unfortunately, in all parts of the world, a common form of violence against women is that committed by husbands against their wives. Despite the outrageous claims made by some religious figures that there are situations when violence is legitimate, genuine Islam requires just the opposite."
-Sara Monsour Ali, A Woman Under Threat, Xlibris Corporation, 2011, p. 42, ISBN: 9781462873326

This woman is either completely ignorant of what she believes, or she is lying to people. Let me make this Muslim woman's statement clear: She will claim I am misguided, misinformed, malevolent, and that my claims are outrageous and opposite to what the Qur'an teaches, but I simply quote what the Qur'an and Hadith directly say, word for word, so unless she is going to claim that she doesn't follow the Qur'an (which would leave her open to being punished by death), then she's likely just a liar, as evidence by the Muslim cleric earlier who said that Muslims will say one thing to your face, but the opposite behind your back.

Let's take a look at a survey taken during Ramadan (a month long Muslim fast and celebration) that was in turn reported by MEMRI (The Middle East Media Research Institute, whose organization has provided many of the videos in this article):
"The May 22-28, 2003 issue of Al-Ahram Weekly featured an article by Lina Mahmoud on violence against women shown on Egyptian television. The article focused on the results of a media monitoring project conducted by the New Woman Research Center (NWRC) and the Media House (MH), an independent production company. According to the article, the project, which monitored 18 television dramas [18] shown on Egyptian national television during Ramadan [Muslim annual fasting ritual] 2002, is the first of its magnitude to study the portrayal of violence against women in Egyptian media. The following are excerpts from the article as it appeared in English...
The report of the findings of the study shows that all of the programs reviewed last Ramadan included scenes of violence against women. 'The problem is that those who perpetuate the violence are the heroes of the episodes, are those who are closest to the hearts of the audience and hence have the largest impact on them,' said the report.
The report also addressed the ways viewers react to violence. Just as disturbing as the portrayals of violence against women is the lack of public outrage to them. In many cases, observers responded with either indifference or approval, making such aggression seem commonplace or justifiable."

-S. Stalinsky & Y. Yehoshua, "Muslim Clerics on the Religious Rulings Regarding Wife-Beating," Middle East Media Research Institute, Mar 22, 2004, retrieved Apr 25, 2013, [http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/1091.htm]

Let me get this straight: We just read in the previous section how even showing a picture of a Qur'an that had been burnt resulted in mass riots, but when the TV shows that Muslims watch daily depict something that is supposed to be "antithetical to the teachings of Islam" (according to the female Muslim author), no one in the Muslim world bats an eyelash over it? According to the above report, the Muslim world is either indifferent to the beatings, or they find it to be a correct example of how a Muslim man should treat his wife.

"There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often."
-Qur'an, Surah, 33:21, Sahih International

According to the Qur'an, Muhammad, the apostle of "Allah," is the excellent role model for all Muslims. This excellent role model beat his wife on the chest, and Muslim leaders today still follow his practices:
"[T]he propriety of wife-beating is reinforced in the hadith. Western apologists for Islam like to point to a hadith in which Muhammad held up a toothbrush in response to a question from his followers about the proper implement for beating one's wife. (He was brushing his teeth when they approached him.) In practice, however, Muhammad himself didn't always counsel such gentleness, and the early Muslims certainly didn't practice it. Muhammad's favorite wife, Aisha, said it herself: 'I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women.' Muhammad was once told that 'women have become emboldened towards their husbands,' whereupon he 'gave permission to beat them.' He was unhappy with the women who complained, not with their husbands who beat them... Aisha recounts, "He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: 'Did you think that Allah and His Apostles would deal unjustly with you?'
Many influential Muslims take all this seriously. In spring 2005, when the East African nation of Chad tried to institute a new family law that would outlaw wife beating, Muslim clerics protested that the measure was unIslamic."

-Robert Spencer, The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran, Regnery Publishing, 2009, p. 172, ISBN: 9781596981263

Not only beatings, but the Qur'an teaches that women are cursed for refusing sexual intercourse:
"Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, 'If a man Invites his wife to sleep with him and she refuses to come to him, then the angels send their curses on her till morning... If a woman spends the night deserting her husband's bed (does not sleep with him), then the angels send their curses on her till she comes back (to her husband).'"
-Hadith, Vol. 7, Book 62, No. 121-122

How can it be an invitation if their god will curse her if she refuses? If the woman refuses sex, Muhammad also gave husbands permission to beat their wives:
"If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teachings of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them."
-M. A. S. Abdel Haleem, The Qur'an: Oxford World's Classics, Surat An-Nisa', Chapter 4, Verse 34, Oxford University Press, 2005, ISBN: 9780191574078

How does one define "high-handedness?" This is a term that is left up to the discretion of the husband to determine what constitutes a threat to his authority, and that means a Muslim husband could consider a sexual refusal "high-handedness," and beat her accordingly. According to the Qur'an's vague definitions, all a husband has to do is suspect what he calls "high-handedness," and he can take abusive action against his wife without consequence.

We could debate the reasons he might initiate a beating, but it is irrelevant to a Muslim because Muhammad also taught that a man was never to be questioned why he beat his wife:
Demotivational Poster Islam Women "Narrated Umar Ibn al-Khattab: The Prophet said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife."
Hadith, Book 11 - Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), No. 2142

"You have rights over your wives... that they should not behave with open unseemliness. If they do, God allows you to put them in separate rooms and to beat them, though not with severity."
-Muhammad, 632 A.D., quoted by F. E. Peters, A Reader on Classical Islam, Princeton University Press, 1993, p. 94, ISBN: 9781400821181
The Muslim man is not supposed to beat his wives with severity, but who defines what is "severe?" Again, "severity" is left up to the discretion of the husband, and he is not allowed to be questioned.

Christian men have no authority to beat their wives at all, and we are taught to treat our wives' bodies as we would treat our own, and as our Lord Jesus Christ treats the church:

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
-1 Peter 3:7

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it... So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
-Ephesians 5:25-29

I'm not saying it has never happened in a Christian home, when someone's rage and anger got out of control, but we are given no authority by God or His prophets to do such things. We are commanded not to sin when we are angry, nor even to go to bed in wrath.

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
-Ephesians 4:26


What most Muslims will not tell you is that a man could marry a one-year-old baby girl if they so choose, and there are no specific laws, rules, or regulations as to when he is allowed to have sexual relations with that girl. The following video is a live television interview with Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu'bi, a Saudi Marriage Officiant, from Lebanon TV in 2008:

@0:23 - "There is no minimal age for entering marriage. You can have a marriage contract even with a one-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of nine, seven, or eight. This is merely a contract indicating consent... But is the girl ready for sex yet or not?... The varies according to environment and traditions.... The Prophet Muhammad is the model we follow. He took Aisha to be his wife when she was six, but he had sex with her only when she was nine."
If the father dies, the rights of the girl go to husband. What keeps this man from having sexual intercourse with the girl? This man's only answer was "tradition," which means NOTHING prevents the action as long as it's legal with the government, and a little girl's (wife's) refusal to sleep with him results in beatings.

"The Prophet [Muhammad] is reported to have said: 'You have a right in the matter of your wives that they do not allow anyone whom you do not like to come into your houses; if they do this, chastise them in such a manner that it should not leave an impression' (Tr. 10:11)"
-Maulana M. Ali & Dee Fish, The Holy Qur'an English Translation and Commentary, Section 6, 34e, eBookIt.com, 2011, ISBN: 9781934271148

The Muslim will admit to wife beatings, but that he's not allowed to leave impressions on her, which in context means marks or bruises (it will always leave a mental impression); however, if a woman has to covver herself from head to toe, how would anyone be able to see if her husband left an impression? Since the man is not supposed to be questioned for her beatings, he would consider her questioning the beatings as a sign of "high-handedness" that would result in more beatings, so how many women have refused to come forward out of fear?

The covering Muslim women have is called "hijab" (hee-jab), which Muslim women are pressured to wear. It's not necessarily a requirement, but the Qur'an does have some passages that indicate women covering themselves completely to deter looks of interest. It seems more to be cultural pressure that brings women to wear the hijab in Islam, rather than a set requirement, because choosing not to wear it is still a sign of converting away from Islam, and is therefore punishable by death.

In an interview with ex-Muslim women, a woman named Reem looks back on her days as a young girl in a Muslim home. Take specific note of why she wore the hijab:
"I had started wearing hijab at ten and took it off just before I turned eighteen. I wore it at my father's request in a desperate attempt to win his approval. At the time that was all it meant to me, approval. I wasn't aware how drastically it would change my life. Not long after wearing it at ten did my parents pull me from karate class, soccer practice, school plays, yearbook photos etc... Family members started coaching me on how to act shy, fragile and dumb. They said hijab is not merely a head covering, but a lifestyle. And what a miserable lifestyle it was for me! Things like running and laughing started to become a distant memory. I wasn't quite aware of it at the time but I was slowly disappearing. Over time I became severely depressed. I felt empty, like a robot or a zombie, but not truly able to pinpoint the reason. One day, I got an email from my father and aunt with an ad for hijab in which the hijab acted as a protective barrier between a lollipop and flies. And I had an epiphany, there it was, the reason I felt nonhuman. I was, according to the email my own family members sent me...a thing."
-Reem, Ex-Muslim Woman, quoted by Valerie Tarico, "Unveiled: Three Former Muslim Women Look Back on the Hijab," The Huffington Post, Mar 24, 2014, retrieved Apr 22, 2015, [huffingtonpost.com/valerie-tarico/unveiled-three-former-mus_b_5010742.html]

The reporter then asked Reem how her family reacted when she decided not to wear hijab:
"The initial reaction was sheer rage. My aunt called and said I was no longer welcome in her house, my father said that I was no longer his daughter and that he would never be seen with me in public again."
-Reem, Ex-Muslim Woman, quoted by Valerie Tarico, "Unveiled: Three Former Muslim Women Look Back on the Hijab," The Huffington Post, Mar 24, 2014, retrieved Apr 22, 2015, [huffingtonpost.com/valerie-tarico/unveiled-three-former-mus_b_5010742.html]

And that's what I mean when I say that Muslim women are pressured into wearing it, but depending on wear you live, you can be executed for it:
"Women in Syria face whippings and even execution under a harsh regime being enforced by Islamist rebels, it has been claimed. Rebels from the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (Isis) have imposed a harsh regime, flogging women who break a strict dress code... One woman was allegedly sentenced to 20 lashes after an Isis "morality patrol" saw her holding hands with a male cousin. Another woman aged 19 was sentenced to 40 lashes after an Isis officer saw a picture of her on Facebook wearing a short-sleeved blouse,"

(VIDEO: News report of Muslim father in Canada facing murder charges for killing his own daughter; her classmates report that she was refusing to wear the hijab at school.)

"A Mississauga, Ont., cab driver has been charged with the murder of his 16-year-old daughter, who was attacked in the family home after clashing with her strict Muslim family over whether or not to wear the hijab, the traditional Islamic head scarf for women. Muhammad Parvez, 57, was charged after his daughter Aqsa Parvez died in hospital late Monday. The victim’s older brother Waqas Parvez, was charged with obstructing police in connection with the girl’s death... police sources said she was strangled."
-Chris Wattie, "Dad Charged After Daughter Killed in Clash Over Hijab," National Post, Dec 11, 2007, retrieved Apr 22, 2015, [nationalpost.com/charged+after+daughter+killed+clash+over+hijab/159480/story.html]

If this man lived in a Muslim country, he would only have to make up a story about something rebellious she did to justify the killing, so he would walk free. This is why many women in Islam live in a constant state of fear, knowing they can be beaten and killed over vague accusations and without question.

Muslims trying to make themselves look good in the public eye will object to this, and "official" Muslim groups do so all the time in the media, but let a woman walk around without her hijab in Saudi Arabia and see what happens.

(VIDEO: Islamic woman jailed, beaten, and raped for refusing to where hijab.)

WOMAN: "I was a university student in southern Iran. An Imam [i.e. Islamic priest] said that all women should wear a long scarf. I didn't want to, so I protested. A week later, the patrol came and arrested me. They gave me three years prison. After two years, they wanted to talk to me, and they started beating me. There were three men. They broke my leg, and they raped-- I'm sorry... [she takes a moment to compose herself]... five times, they raped me. Two days later, they took me to the prison hospital. After 15 days... [shows her now deformed leg]... I saw maggots in the wound."
REPORTER: "What was your view on Islam when you left prison?"
WOMAN: "Islam, to me, is the most horrible thing I have experienced in my life. Islam means failure, it means rape, it means women are not human; they are half worth. That is what Islam means. Islam means oppression."
It's not like I'm making up these testimonies; they are coming directly from Middle-eastern Muslim women.

Due to this obvious Muslim oppression on Muslim women, Islamic religious leaders have been making extra effort to preach regulations and limitations on beating wives, despite the fact that none of those regulations and limitations exist in the Qur'an.
@0:31 - "Allah honored wives by instating the punishment of beatings... The Prophet Muhammad said: 'Don't beat her in the face, and do not make her ugly.' See how she is honored. If the husband beats his wife, he must not beat her in the face... He beats her in order to discipline her."

So after the husband beats his wife, he can say to her, "Hey honey, I could have broken your nose, but I didn't hit your face, don't you feel honored?" I'm sure you girls feel very honored by that, right?

In the video, the Muslim cleric goes on to say that the husband beats his wife to bring her in to submission and repentance, but also must not beat her in places where it hurts, which is a total contradiction. Beating without hurt simply becomes an annoyance, not punishment.

The man in the video claims that husbands are not to break her bones, or bruise her, or make her bleed, or break her teeth, or raise his hand high to beat her, but I have an obvious question: Where did Muhammad teach those restraints in the Qur'an? The answer is nowhere. Muhammad never taught those restraints. You have to go to the commentary, which is someone else's interpretation, to get this ruleset because it doesn't come from Muhammad, and again, the religious leaders of Islam have, in the public eye, been attempting to soften this terrible image created because the text of the Qur'an has obviously been interpreted by individual Muslim men to mean they can do more than leave an impression.

The embarrassment of the wife beating passage in Surah 4:34 has been so great that some authors have tried to remove it from the Qur'an. The following author points to Muslim scholars who have translated the passage:
"This translation flatly contradicts the two others cited here and many others: “beat” (Fakhry); “scourge” (Pickthall); “beat” (Dawood); “beat (lightly)” (Hilali and Khan); “chastise” (Maulana); “chastise” (Khan); “beat” (Maududi); “beat” (Salahi and Shamis, Muslim translators of Sayyid Qutb); “beat” (Committee of Muslim translators of Ibn Kathir); “beat” (Shakir); “chastise” (Khalifa); “beat” (Sher Ali); and “beat” (Asad, whom Hathout quotes in her article)."
-James M. Arlandson, "Domestic Violence in Islam," answering-islam.org, retrieved Apr 25, 2013, [http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/Arlandson/beating.htm]

Another translation of the Hadith says:
"One of you has recourse to whipping his wife as a slave is whipped and perhaps he lies with her at the end of the day."
-Afzal-ur-Rahman, Muhammad - Encyclopedia of Seerah: Role of Muslim Woman in Society, Vol. 5, Seerah Foundation, 1987, p. 604, ISBN: 9780907052241

Remember, Islam is a pagan religion, and just like with all pagan religions, you are give some liberty to interpret anything however you feel, altering interpretations here and there to meet the societal memes at any given time. This isn't like Christianity where we have a perfect preserved Word of God that interprets itself. There are Muslims who think wives should not be beaten in a harsh manner, and Muslims who think they should, but no one is ever proven right or wrong because the Qur'an is too vague to be understood clearly.

Thus, when Muhammad originally gave permission for men to beat their wives, they took it literally:
"Narrated 'Ikrima: Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah's Apostle came, 'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!"
-Bill McLean & IslamKotob, Hadith Bukhari, Islamic Books, 7.715

If you read the rest of the narrative (it's long, which is why I did not quote it here), the beaten lady goes on to complain to Muhammad that her husband is impotent, and that's why he beat her. Her huband said she was a liar, which is basically her word against his, but no correction or punishment was ever given by Muhammad to the man for any wrong doing, but rather scolding to the lady for lying. That means she took bruises that turned her skin green, and SHE was scolded by Muhammad for questioning her beatings, and there was no penalties for the man beating her up. This passage clearly communicates to any Muslim man that it is acceptable to beat his wife and leave marks, despite what some Islamic religious leaders are teaching, and that is why Muslim TV shows with men beating women are approved by the Islamic viewers.

Remember that Muhammad is the most excellent example of a Muslim, and so Muslim men who want to be "just" for Allah must beat their wives into submission. The teachers of the Qur'an say that even if men don't like doing it, they have to:
"As to a beating, the Holy Prophet [Muhammad] allowed it very reluctantly and even then did not like it. But the fact is that there are certain women who do not mend their ways without a beating."
-Syed Abul 'Ala Maudoodi, The Meaning of the Qur'an, Vol. 2, Islamic Publications, 1967, p. 325

If they don't conform to your every liking, you have to beat them because they can't learn. That's exactly what he's saying there.

In addition to all this oppression, most young Muslim girls are mutilated from birth. Female gential mutilation is a common practice among Muslim communities, and involves the cutting off sensory areas of a her vagina.

I try as much as I can to keep this an appropriate family-friendly website, and due to the sensative nature of this subject, I have refrained from including any direct pictures of this procedure, but I will leave THIS LINK for those of you who choose to understand this via drawn surgical diagram. Though this process is called "Female Circumcision," the diagram in that link will help anyone understand why this is properly called mutilation, not circumcision.

I used to have a video posted here for the following quotation, but many of these embedded videoes are difficult to keep on here due to closing of accounts for various reasons. This is the transcript for video interviews done by MEMRI with Muslim female villagers:
Muslim Woman Interviewed About Circumcising Girls

FEMALE VILLAGER: "The Prophet said that men go and wage Jihad for a year. He said that girls should be circumcised so they can bear it for a whole year until the men return... It doesn't do us any harm... Not doing it is not normal."
INTERVIEWER: "Doesn't it hurt the girl who is being circumcised?"
FEMALE VILLAGER: "No. She performs the circumcision, and the girl sits in warm water, and everything is fine."
INTERVIEWER: "The girl doesn't scream and cry?"
FEMALE VILLAGER: "She does, but we hold her down and the woman cuts it."
-MEMRI, "Egyptian Villagers Explain Why They Circumcise Their Daughters," Clip No. 1467, May 10, 2007, retrieved Sept 1, 2014, [memri.org/clip_transcript/en/1467.htm]

Typically, in Muslim communities, this surgery is performed on girls when they hit puberty, which could be anywhere from around 8 to 12 years of age. Areas with access to hospitals will do it under sterile conditions on an operating table, but poorer regions usually have an veteran member of the community (man or woman) that performs the procedure privately in the home at low cost to the girl's parents.

Again, some Muslims will object to this and say that this is not the teaching of Islam, and that female circumcision is not an obligation, but according to the Hadith of Umar, Muhammad said:
"Cut very slightly and do not exaggerate, as it is preferable for the husband and better for the face."
-G. C. Denniston & F. M. Hodges, Male and Female Circumcision, Springer, 1999, p. 138, ISBN: 9780306461316

If it is not an obligation, why do the parents choose for their daughter? If the girls were given an option to stop anytime they felt uncomfortable, most them would probably not go through with it.

In the 18th century, Muslim leader Al-Dardir wrote:
"Female circumcision is recommended (mandub)."
-G. C. Denniston & F. M. Hodges, Male and Female Circumcision, Springer, 1999, p. 138, ISBN: 9780306461316; 'mandub' means recommended

In the 16th century, Muslim leader Al-Amili wrote:
"[I]t is preferable that women be circumcised even if they are adult. Al-Sadiq said: Circumcision for women is makrumah and what is better than a makrumah?"
-G. C. Denniston & F. M. Hodges, Male and Female Circumcision, Springer, 1999, p. 138, ISBN: 9780306461316; 'makrumah' roughly translated mean meritorious action

Female circumcision has long been a pagan, tribal practice that was floating around the middle east, even before the time of Muhammad, and that's why Muhammad would have been questioned about it, according to the Hadith. As we will read later, Muhammad had a habit of incorporating known pagan stories and traditions into his religion, thereby attempting to justify wicked practices as "holy." Today, female circumcisions are taking place even in major countries like the U.S. and U.K., but laws have been passed in many countries to supress this ritualistic mutilation by Muslims.

If you watched the above video clip of Muslim female interviews, one lady had said, "The Prophet said that men go and wage Jihad for a year. He said that girls should be circumcised so they can bear it for a whole year until the men return," which means the entire purpose of female mutilation in Islam is to prevent women from having any sexual desire, so while the men go off to murder non-Muslims (peacefully, of course) for a year, she won't have any hormonal desires to cheat on her husband. So why don't they just get rid of "Jihad" and then they won't have to mutilate their girls anymore?

While confined to the home and nearby locations, requirements to cover themselves head-to-toe at all times, unable to drive, beatings, mutilation, etc... I have to ask the same question the cartoon at the beginning of this section asked: Why are Muslim women oppressed? Answer: Muslim women are oppressed because they are forced to submit themselves to that oppression.

Worse still is that Muslims are passing laws in the Middle East that punish women for being raped:
"In Lashkar Gah, Afghanistan, the majority of female prisoners are serving 20-year sentences for being raped. The system makes no distinction between women who have chosen to have sex with a man, and women who have been raped: both are a crime that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. A high-ranking regional security officer, Colonel Ghulam Ali, told a reporter for the Independent, 'In Afghanistan, whether it is forced or not forced, it is a crime because the Islamic rules say that it is.'"
-Ophelia Benson & Jeremy Stangroom, Does God Hate Women?, Continuum International Publishing Group, 2009, p. 2, ISBN: 9780826498267

In addition to serving prison sentences for the crimes of the men, women also constantly live in fear of "honor killings." This is where a man would be justified to kill a woman if she was caught without wearing her full covering, opposed an arranged marriage, or other such minor offenses.

(VIDEO: Muslim uncle murders his niece, claiming he was cleansing the family.)

"A year after she disappeared, police found the body of Aya El Baradeiyah, a 21-year old university student, just a few kilometers from the family home, and the details of her horrific death were finally revealed. Her uncle, and two of his friends, had beaten her and thrown her into a well. Aya's uncle claims he was cleansing the family's honor, a defense that, until Aya's death, would have protected the perpetrator... In the West Bank, a decades-old Jordanian law afforded leniency to anyone who murders family members in the name of honor. Such criminals would expect to receive a maximum sentence of six months in prison."

Though the law was amended, it was only amended to force officials to do more investigation to find out if the honor killing was valid, which means it's still based on he said/she said, and will do next to nothing to deter Muslims from continuing to murder their own family if they so choose.

Islam, a religion of peace? It would be laughable if it wasn't so sad.

If one wants to believe women in Islam are not oppressed, abused, and mutilated, one must force him/her self to blindness of the obvious reality of the teachings of the Muslim societies. The propaganda cartoon at the beginning of this section is so sickening, claiming that Muslim women are oppressed for their covering, yet universities here in America bend over backwards to accept such minorities for the government subsidies involved. Muslim women live in constant fear of being raped, tortured, imprisoned, and murdered by the very men who state hypocritically that "women are honored in Islam."



 

The word "Qur'an" in arabic means "the recitation," because there is no evidence that Muhammad was literate, so he had to recite doctrines instead of writing them down. In fact, due to the nature of the Qur'an having to be quickly scribbled down on random objects lying around while Muhammad was speaking, it is common knowledge, even among Muslim historians, that pieces of the Qur'an are missing or incomplete, and that no one has ever, nor will ever, have access to a completed version of Muhammad's teachings.

"It is reported from Ismail ibn Ibrahim from Ayyub from Naafi from Ibn Umar who said: 'Let none of you say 'I have acquired the whole of the Qur'an'. How does he know what all of it is when much of the Quran has disappeared? Rather let him say 'I have acquired what has survived.'"
-Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti, Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur'an (translated: The Perfect Guide to the Sciences of the Qur'an), p. 524, ISBN: 9781859642412; Suyuti has around 700 books and treatises and is a highly-respected authority in Muslim circles.

How is it possible to claim you can know anything for sure about the doctrines of Muhammad when there is openly admitted missing doctrine? How do Muslims know that things they are doing today are not completely wrong because they're missing contextual scriptures from the Qur'an?

Before we continue, I wanted to make note that the Qur'an cannot be studied in the same way that the King James Bible can be studied. In our audio teachings, I show our listeners how we walk through the Bible to gain a context of how words are defined, because God's Word defines itself. Because the Qur'an bounces around from topic to topic with little or no context, and is quite disorganized, it is difficult to complete understand its doctrines. Most of the Qur'an consists of sayings for each verse, and not a continued message, teaching, or story, which is why, as we will see later in this article, that there are so many contradictions in it.

As Muhammad grew in power in Saudi Arabia, certain conflicts arose in his peronsal life that differed from the doctrine he recited, and after being addressed on one of the conflicts, which was typically a contradiction in his doctrine, he would come back the following day with a convenient vision from Allah. Before getting into specific examples, any sensible person would immediately raise red flags about the legitimacy of Muhammad's "prophecy" that more appears to be a ruse to serve his selfish lusts, rather than revelation from God.

For example, in the Qur'an, Surah 4:3 limits the maximum number of wives a man can take to four, but Muhammad is given special privaleges above all Muslims to marry as many as he chooses:
"O Prophet, indeed We have made lawful to you your wives... if the Prophet wishes to marry her, [this is] only for you, excluding the [other] believers."
-Qur'an, Surah 33:50, Sahih International

The question we need to ask ourselves is: What does a self-proclaimed prophet have to do before Muslims will begin to question his legitimacy? Can he do anything he wants and Muslims will believe him no matter what? When a prophet of a religion begins to bypass his own teachings, violating the laws he has given through his revelation, where do we begin to start questioning if he is a false prophet that's making it up as he goes to get special treatment?

Muhammad's "revelation" didn't stop with the number of wives, because he granted himself more special privelage:
"You, [O Muhammad], may put aside whom you will of them or take to yourself whom you will. And any that you desire of those [wives] from whom you had [temporarily] separated - there is no blame upon you [in returning her]."
-Qur'an, Surah 33:51, Sahih International

Muhammad has given himself special privelage to divorce or remarry a woman at will, marry any woman he wants, even if she is another man's wife, and has no limit the the number of wives and slave girls he can access. Even Aisha, Muhammad's favorite wife, understood this obvious pattern of fulfilling his own sexual lust, and after quoting Surah 33:51 passage we just read, she said:
"I said (to the Prophet), "'I feel that your Lord hastens in fulfilling your wishes and desires.'"
-Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith, Vol. 6, Book 60, #311

Muhammad wanted to appear to be the "Messenger of Allah," so that he could get accomplished whatever he desired, and people would just go along with it because they believed that if they did what Muhammad told them, they would be following Allah:
"He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah;"
-Qur'an, Surah 4:80, Sahih International

In the Bible, the twelve apostles were bound to the Scriptures and teachings of the Lord God and His Son Jesus Christ as much as any of the men and women they were teaching, and often lived in a lessar state than other Christians. The apostles did not start switching out and changing doctrine to give themselves special benefit, but the Muslims do. As we stated earlier in Surah 16:101, nothing in the Qur'an can be trusted to be absolute, which also means Muhammad cannot be trusted as a prophet, yet, many Arabs blindly follow him despite the lack of absolute standards.

"In none of the wars that Muhammad waged did he put his own life in danger. He stood behind his troops wearing often two coats of chain-link mail, one on top of the other. The double armoring would make him so heavy that his movements became cumbersome and he needed assistance to stand or to walk. While in that state he would shout toward the front and loudly encourage his men to be valiant and not fear death, promising them high-bosomed virgins and celestial food in the other world."
-Ali Sina, Understanding Muhammad: A Psychobiography of Allah's Prophet, Felibri.com, 2008, p. 100, ISBN: 9780980994803

Muhammad was much more like a religious dictator than a prophet. Islam commonly recruits young men, who are reaching the stage of pueberty where their hormones are raging, and when they see the state of the economy and they would be working slaves all their lives, the promise of dozens of good-looking virgin women pleasuring him for eternity sounds much more tempting. Muhammad took advantage of the Arab people to his own gain, and many Arabs are needlessly suffering for it today.

Though he claimed they came directly from Allah, the teachings of Muhammad mimic a lot of the folk tales going around in his day. It was common place for Muhammad to tell a story that he claims was "revelation," but even the people of his day knew that he was drawing those stories from known works of Christian folklore.

For example, Muhammad taught that Jesus Christ spoke to the people as an infant, shortly after coming from Mary's womb, and taught them the teachings of Allah. This is written in the Qur'an:
"So she pointed to him. They said, "How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?" [Jesus] said, "Indeed, I am the servant of Allah. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah [blessing as long as I remain alive. And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive."
-Qur'an, Surah 19:30-33, Sahih International

According to many historians, this story was already in circulation in the middle east from a document called The Arabic Gospel of the Infancy (an apocryphal work; meaning no inspiration of God, and no verification of truth and accuracy), which says the following:
"We have found it recorded in the book of Josephus the Chief Priest, who was in the time of Christ (and men say that he was Caiaphas), that this man said that Jesus spake when He was in the cradle, and said to Mary His Mother, 'Verily I am Jesus, the Son of God, the Word which thou hast borne, according as the angel Gabriel gave thee the good news; and My Father hath sent Me for the salvation of the world.'"
-The Arabic Gospel of The Infancy Of The Saviour, Vol. 1, Kessinger Publishing, 2004, ISBN: 9781419152511

Scholar of Qur'an sources, William Tisdall, said the following about this passage:
"Of course Muhammad could not represent Christ as using the words which this apocryphal Gospel attributes to Him, for in the Qur'an, the Divine Sonship of Christ is everywhere denied. Therefore, while believing and stating that Jesus spoke when an infant in the cradle, Muhammad in his account has put into His mouth words which seemed to him more suitable and more consonant with Islam. Otherwise, the story is the same."
-William St. Clair Tisdall, The Original Sources of the Qur'an, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1911, p. 170

The Arabic Gospel of the Infancy is a work dated somewhere between the 2nd and 5th century A.D., hundreds of years after the New Testament was written, and so we know for a fact that this document is not based on eye-witness accounts. The book of John, which is a direct eye-witness, authored in the 1st century, said that no miracles were performed by Jesus Christ until water-to-wine at the wedding:

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
-John 2:11

A baby speaking intelligent and fluent langauge would have been a miracle, and so the story can't be true because it contradicts God's Word. But the Qur'an (a 7th century document) teaches that Jesus performed a miracle of a newborn infant speaking:
"So she [Mary] conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place. And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, 'Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten.' But he [infant Jesus] called her from below her, 'Do not grieve; your Lord has provided beneath you a stream. And shake toward you the trunk of the palm tree; it will drop upon you ripe, fresh dates. So eat and drink and be contented. And if you see from among humanity anyone, say, 'Indeed, I have vowed to the Most Merciful abstention, so I will not speak today to [any] man.'"
-Qur'an, Surah, 19:22-26, Sahih International

He's pulling this from pagan stories that are not true. Here's another entry:
"[And mention] when the angels said, 'O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah]. He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous.'"
-Qur'an, Surah, 3:45-46, Sahih International

This image is a billboard that Muslims have been paying to put up around the U.S. The problem is that the "Jesus" Muhammad refers to is based on stories false pagan stories that were floating around the Middle-east at the time.

Muhammad's teachings do not match up with historical eye-witness accounts, but they do match up with fiction and folk lore. There are more examples of the infant-speaking stories told by Muhammad that come from other numerous apocryphal works, such as the Gospel of Thomas the Israelite, the Narrative of Joseph of Arimathaea, etc.
(See William St. Clair Tisdall, The Original Sources of the Qur'an, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1911, p. 171)

There are literally hundreds of strange entries like this in the Qur'an. For historical example, Alexander the Great is claimed to be a Muslim who lived to old age, but historical records say he died at age 33 and believed that he himself was a god (so he couldn't believe that Allah was god over himself).

Another example, concerning superstitions, would be how Muslims are supposed blow their noses with water in the morning because Muhammad said Satan lives in the nose while you sleep and he has to be washed out. How can water, a material substance, flush out a spiritual being? Is Satan omnipresent, so that he can be in all peoples' noses in all places at the same time?
(See Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith, Vol. 4, Book 54, #516)

One of the strangest things I've seen so far is that Muhammad was known to have received his best revelations while wearing Aisha's (his nine-year-old child-bride) clothes, which would make him the world's first cross-dressing prophet. In this particular story, Muhammad was being questioned as to why he taught that men were supposed to treat their wives equally, but he broke that rule by always gaving favor to Aisha, and he said:
"Do not hurt me regarding Aisha, as the Divine Ispiriations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha."
-Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith, Book 47, #755

But the Mishkat al-Masabih, a writing considered very important by Sunni scholars, is an expanded hadith, and it reads:
"Do not annoy me regarding Aisha, for inspiration has not come to me when I was in any woman's garment but Aisha's."
-Muhammad ibn 'Abd Allah Khatib al-Tibrizi & James Robson (emeritus professor of Arabic), Mishkat Al-Masabih, Vol. 2, Sh. Muhammad Ashraf, 1981, p. 1361

Consider that not only is Muhammad admitting that he was putting on Aisha's clothes in this passage, but also that he has tried the same thing with other women. Another Muslim document confirms this translation:
"Do not injure me regarding 'A'isha. The revelation does not come to me when I am in the garment of any woman except 'A'isha."
-Muhammad Ibn Umar Waqidi & Rizwi Faizer, The Life of Muhammad: Al-Waqidi's Kitab Al-Maghazi, Routledge, 2010, p. 486, ISBN: 9780415574341

Though I will not quote them all here, there are multiple translators, and multiple accounts of the same story, in which the author refers to Muhammad wearing Aisha's robe and/or mantle, which are clothing.

As a Muslim, if a Christian came up to you and said he was having sex with a nine-year-old girl, and receiving revelation from God by wearing this nine-year-old's clothes, and that revelation said the Qur'an was wrong, would you believe him automatically, or do you have limits to what you would accept as true? Again I ask: What does a prophet have to do before you would begin to question his authenticity?

There is also the very serious matter of the reading and interpretation of the Qur'an, and in the following documentary, language scholars are interviewed in analyzing original documentation in comparison with modern versions of the Qur'an. There are many different versions and many different interpretations of verses because there is a lot of evidence that shows the Qur'an has been slowly developed and revised over the course of a thousand years after Muhammad.

(Documentary showing the earliest Qurans found are different than those today.)
@0:55 - "In 1972, during the restoration of the great mosque of Sana, capital of North Yemen, workers discovered a mash of old parchments in a loft between the inner and outer rooms. The entire load was stuffed into some twenty potato sacks, where it might have remained were it not for the arrival, seven years later, of... a German scholar and Quranic expert. [He] immediately grasped the significance of the find. Working with a team of local assistants, he carefully pried the layers apart, and fired off thousands of photographs. Four fragments immediately caught [his] attention. They contained the first and last chapters of the Qur'an, and unlike any other Qur'ans in existence, they were illustrated with architectural drawings of Mosques, a vital clue to their origin.
Because of its drawings... you can date this Qur'an very precisely... this is the reign between 705 and 715 [A.D.]. The oldest datable Qur'an in the world, created some 70 years after the death of the prophet. From the potato sacks, [he] identified fragments from nearly a thousand different Qur'ans. Comparisons between them and the standard Cairo text in use today are startling.
These early texts are written in a kind of short-hand, no vowel markings or distinguishing dots, which means that individual words can have up to thirty different meanings. The sheer existence of so many different possible readings would suggest this text wasn't passed down word-for-word. The text isn't as stable as it seems in the Cairo version.
"

I would argue that the text isn't stable in the Cairo version either, which is what I quote from in this article, and what many Muslims use today. This documentary goes on to talk about a German scholar who went on to do the translation work of these early Qur'an documents, and it turns out that there were far more controdictory statements that seemed to have been edited out of newer editions.

They also discovered text underneath the text of the pages that had been erased. This text had many edits of words and phrases, and rearranged whole verses and chapters. This translation work was completed and published under a fake name so the author could protect his identity, since this research sent a flare of outrage into the Muslim world.
(See Christoph Luxenberg, The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran: A Contribution to the Decoding of the Language of the Koran, Verlag Hans Schiler, 2007, ISBN: 9783899300888

Much like the new-age versions that have corrupted the Bible that changed thousands of words, adding and subtracting from the text, the Qur'an has been changed so many times, it leads us to wonder how many times it's been altered with the evidence destroyed so we will never discover it. There are so many ways to interpret many of the words of the text, and without proper context in many areas across the Qur'an, we can confidently say that when an imam (Muslim high priest) argues his "interpretation," he's simply giving us his personal feelings about what the Qur'an says.

But we cannot trust that any of these Muslim teachers knows the truth, and that is in conjuction with the quotation we read at the beginning of this section:
"It is reported from Ismail ibn Ibrahim from Ayyub from Naafi from Ibn Umar who said: 'Let none of you say 'I have acquired the whole of the Qur'an'. How does he know what all of it is when much of the Quran has disappeared? Rather let him say 'I have acquired what has survived.'"
-Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti, Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur'an (translated: The Perfect Guide to the Sciences of the Qur'an), p. 524, ISBN: 9781859642412; Suyuti has around 700 books and treatises and is a highly-respected authority in Muslim circles.

The whole of the Qur'an does not exist, Muhammad either made things up or recited them from other stories he had heard, and Muhammad's teachings in the Qur'an have been written over and edited by numerous people over many decades.



 

Like many modern-day politicians, Muhammad would say something, then later, he would say something else that contradicted his first statement. It's flip-flopping in politics, which is a politically correct way of referring to liars.

Surprising to most Christians who know little about Islam, Muhammad's design is very similar to how Joseph Smith crafted the Book of Mormon, reciting it for someone else to write down, and he would end up contradicting himself eventually. The Qur'an is filled with Muhammad's obvious doctrinal contradictions.

QUR'AN: HOW WAS MAN CREATED?
"The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: 'Be'. And he was."
-Qur'an, Surah, 3:59, Sahih International
Man was created from dust.
"We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape;"
-Qur'an, Surah 15:26, Sahih International
Man was created from clay and mud.
"He has created man from a sperm-drop; and behold this same (man) becomes an open disputer"
-Qur'an, Surah 16:4, Sahih International
Man was created from a sperm drop.
"But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing?"
-Qur'an, Surah 19:67, Sahih International
Man was created from nothing.
"Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:"
-Qur'an, Surah 96:2, Sahih International
Man was created from a blood clot.

A Muslim, again, will argue interpretation and context on some of these; taking for example the sperm creation. Muslims will say this passage is referring only to the creation of a man in the womb, but that is NOT the context of Surah 16--this is one verse prior to the sperm verse:
"He created the heavens and earth in truth. High is He above what they associate with Him."
-Qur'an, Surah 16:3, Sahih International

The context of these verses are the creation of the world, so it doesn't matter what they want to argue, they would literally have to ignore and/or change these verses in order to make it fit logically and consistently.

QUR'AN: HOW LONG IS A DAY WITH ALLAH?
"He rules (all) affairs from the heavens to the earth: in the end will (all affairs) go up to Him, on a Day, the space whereof will be (as) a thousand years of your reckoning."
-Qur'an, Surah, 32:5, Sahih International
One day with Allah is 1,000 years.
"The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:"
-Qur'an, Surah, 70:4, Sahih International
One day with Allah is 50,000 years.

Don't confuse this with the Word of God:

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
-2 Peter 3:8

The word "as" being used in reference to a likeness. This is saying that time doesn't mean anything to the Lord God. But in the Qur'an, it says specifically that "a day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years," which means that there is a specific amount of time passed, and that directly contradicts previous verses.

QUR'AN: DOES ALLAH ALLOW LIES?
"And a believing man from the family of Pharaoh who concealed his faith said, "Do you kill a man [merely] because he says, 'My Lord is Allah ' while he has brought you clear proofs from your Lord? And if he should be lying, then upon him is [the consequence of] his lie; but if he should be truthful, there will strike you some of what he promises you. Indeed, Allah does not guide one who is a transgressor and a liar."
-Qur'an, Surah 40:28, Sahih International
Allah is not with one who lies to conceal his faith.
"Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief... except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah , and for them is a great punishment;"
-Qur'an, Surah, 16:106, Sahih International
Allah is with one who lies to conceal his faith.

Are lies acceptable or unacceptable with Allah? No one can really know because even after we read earlier that Surah 5:51 said that Muslims were forbidden to take allies with Jews and Christians, Surah 3:28 tells us: "Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence," which means that they can take allies with Jews and Christians only in deception as a precaution. Deception is a fundamental teaching in Islam, and that leads us to an obviously question: "As a Muslim, since Allah teaches to lie and deceive, then how do you know that Allah has not deceived Muslims?"

QUR'AN: SHOULD MUSLIMS FORCE/ATTACK NON-MUSLIMS?
"Let there be no compulsion [i.e. force to submit or overpower others] in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things."
-Qur'an, Surah, 2:256, Sahih International
Muslims are not supposed to force themselves on others to overpower them and bring them into submission.
"But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them [surround with military force], and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful."
-Qur'an, Surah, 9:5, Sahih International
Muslims are supposed to force themselves on others to overpower them and bring them into submission.
"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya [tribute] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
-Qur'an, Surah, 9:29, Sahih International
Muslims are supposed to force themselves on others to overpower them and bring them into submission.

The word "compel" means to bring others into submission and overpower them, so the Qur'an obviously is giving two different messages here. One tells them not to force themselves on others, and another tells them to force themselves on others. When one Muslism goes for the don't-harm-others route, and another Muslism goes for the harm-them-until-they-submit route, they both are simply following whatever they feel is right because the Qur'an is teaches them two contradictory concepts.

QUR'AN: DO THE WORDS OF ALLAH CHANGE?
"Rejected were the apostles before thee: with patience and constancy they bore their rejection and their wrongs, until Our aid did reach them: there is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of Allah. Already hast thou received some account of those apostles."
-Qur'an, Surah, 6:34, Sahih International
No one can alter Allah's words and decrees.
"None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things?"
-Qur'an, Surah, 2:106, Sahih International
Allah's words and decrees are altered for better ones.
"When We substitute one revelation for another,- and Allah knows best what He reveals (in stages),- they say, "Thou art but a forger": but most of them understand not."
-Qur'an, Surah, 16:101, Sahih International
Allah's words and decrees are altered for better ones.

This last verse is really comical if you read the section of verses around it. It keeps talking about how Allah is authority and truth, but it does not explain why they are replacing verses. What's most hilarious is that it flat out says what a logical-thinking person will say when reading this, that it's a forgery, or book of lies, then says they just don't know--so after I read this, I thought "perhaps this will go on to explain it," but if you actually read though this section, the Qur'an never says another word about it.

In a nutshell, their "Allah" says whatever he wants, then can replace it with whatever he wants whenever he wants, even though it's a complete contradiction to do so. It's no wonder that it is so difficult to reason with most Muslims, because they worship a pagan god that is unreasonable. The claim from the Muslim is just like the Mormon: You have to first believe in their false pagan god, and then get a "feeling" in your heart about its truth.

QUR'AN: DOES EVIL COME FROM ALLAH OR MAN?
"But if good comes to them, they say, 'This is from Allah'; and if evil befalls them, they say, 'This is from you.' Say, 'All [things] are from Allah.' So what is [the matter] with those people that they can hardly understand any statement?"
-Qur'an, Surah 4:78, Sahih International
All evil comes from Allah.
"What comes to you of good is from Allah, but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself."
-Qur'an, Surah 4:79, Sahih International
All evil comes from man.

If all evil comes from Allah, then Allah himself is evil, and if they want to say that evil to us is not evil to Allah, then there are no consistent standards of right/wrong or good/evil. If they want to say all evil concerning men comes from men, then Satan (who is mentioned in the Qur'an) does no evil to mankind, and thus we can see numerous contradictions stacked on contradictions.

QUR'AN: ARE JINNS AND MEN MADE FOR ALLAH OR HELL?
"And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me."
-Qur'an, Surah 51:56, Sahih International
Jinn and men are made only to worship Allah.
"And We have certainly created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear. Those are like livestock; rather, they are more astray. It is they who are the heedless."
-Qur'an, Surah 7:179, Sahih International
Jinn and men are made for Hell.

In Islam, Jinn are some sort of vague spiritual creatures created with free will; a pagan concept that was carried over by Muhammad to Islam. In the first verse, Jinn and men are created with sole purpose of worship of Allah, but in later verses, there a many who are created with the sole purpose of eternal punishment in hell... so which is it?

QUR'AN: WHO HAS ULTIMATE AUTHORITY?
"[Say], 'Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?' And those to whom We [previously] gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters."
-Qur'an, Surah 6:114, Sahih International
Only Allah makes judgments on men.
"And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah . And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, [O Muhammad], and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful. But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission."
-Qur'an, Surah 4:64-65, Sahih International
Muhammad make judgments on men.
"Say, 'Allah is most knowing of how long they remained. He has [knowledge of] the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. How Seeing is He and how Hearing! They have not besides Him any protector, and He shares not His legislation with anyone.'"
-Qur'an, Surah 18:26, Sahih International
Allah does not share his authority with anyone.
"O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result."
-Qur'an, Surah 4:59, Sahih International
Allah shares his authority with another.

The contradiction is not in Allah choosing to share his authority with another, it's that in multiple passages, he claims to be the sole authority that he does not share with anyone, but then contradicts that by sharing it with Muhammad. No wonder it's easy for Muslims to lie; it's because they serve a pagan god who lies.

QUR'AN: DID MUHAMMAD SEE ALLAH?
"The heart did not lie [about] what it saw. So will you despute with him over what he saw? And he certainly saw him in another descent at the Lote Tree of the Utmost Boundary..."
-Qur'an, Surah 53:11-14, Sahih International
Muhammad (certainly) saw Allah.
"I saw my Lord, the Exalted and Glorious in the most beautiful form. He said: What do the Angels in the presence of Allah contend about? I said: Thou art the most aware of it. He then placed his palm between my shoulders and I felt its coldness in my chest and I came to know what was in the Heavens and the Earth."
-Al-Tirmidhi Hadith, 237, Narrated AbdurRahman ibn A'ish
Muhammad saw Allah in his form.
"I dozed in my prayer till I was overcome by (sleep) and lo, I found myself in the presence of my Lord, the Blessed and the Glorious, in the best form."
-Al-Tirmidhi Hadith, 245, Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal
Muhammad saw Allah in the best form.
"That is Allah, your Lord; there is no deity except Him, the Creator of all things, so worship Him. And He is Disposer of all things. Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives [all] vision; and He is the Subtle, the Acquainted."
-Qur'an, Surah 6:102-103, Sahih International
Muhammad is unable to see Allah.
"And it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition [wall or barrier] or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills."
-Qur'an, Surah 42:51, Sahih International
Allah doesn't speak to man unless they're behind a partition where he cannot be seen.
"I said to Aisha, 'O Mother! Did Prophet Muhammad see his Lord?' Aisha said, 'What you have said makes my hair stand on end! Know that if somebody tells you one of the following three things, he is a liar: Whoever tells you that Muhammad saw his Lord, is a liar.'"
-Bukhari Hadith, 60, Narrated Masruq
Aisha says Muhammad is a liar.

If anyone who claims to have seen Allah is a liar, then Aisha (Muhammad's wife) is saying Muhammad is a liar. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

The Qur'an contradicts itself because Muhammad contradicted himself, and therefore, his teachings can't come from the pure and perfect God. I could continue with many dozens of examples like this. Muhammad is not a true prophet, and he made these contradictory errors based on reciting his "revelations," of which many came about by simple convenience to justify his personal desires.



 

There are two critical lies that every Christian should be aware of when discussing Islam because the media pushes these lies as often as they can. Most of the foundation for politicians and religious leaders justifying Islam comes from these two lies:

Lie #1: Allah is the same as the Christian God of the Bible.

I have listened to Muslims in live public debate state that Allah is just the arabic word for 'god,' but a little research reveals this claim to be false. Though I am mostly ignorant to the Middle Eastern languages, it was not hard to search for and find the actual words for 'god.'
HEBREW: eloh
ARAMAIC: elah
ARABIC: ilah
So for example, "eloh" is a root word where we get the plural form "elohim," which many Christians believe is a name for the God of the Bible, but it has also been used many times as a name for pagan gods. This is why, in this author's opinion, God has been so reluctant to give us His name, because mankind only corrupts it by worshipping false gods and giving His Holy name to them in idolatry.

I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
-Psalm 82:6-7

In this passage, the Lord God is not saying that men are actually gods -- this was a term used by the Jews for the judges of Israel, calling them "gods" because they were making (or supposed to be making) judgments based on God's Word, and so they were acting in the place of the Lord God. God is mocking these judges because they were judging in unrighteousness, but still calling themselves "gods." The Hebrew word used in this passage is elohim, which represents the judges of Israel, so we can see a usage of elohim that is not referring to the Lord God in three persons.
(Read "Does the Bible Say 'Ye Are Gods'?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

In Arabic, ilah is the word meaning god, not allah. The word allah is a word that was around long before Muhammad was born, coming from the compound Arabic word al-ilah which translates the god and allah was used generically to describe one's own personal choice among about 360 pagan gods that were worshipped at the Kaaba [literally meaning "cube"] in Mecca. (We'll see more on the Kaaba in a moment.)

"In pre-Islamic Arabia, the name 'Allah' was well established and referred to whatever god was one's god. We know that the use of 'Allah' pre-dated Islam because people like those in Muhammad's Quraysh tribe sometimes used it in their names. Muhammad's own father was named 'Abdallah,' which literally means servant of Allah."
-Mark Davidson, Hidden in Plain Sight, Xulon Press, 2012, p. 54, ISBN: 9781619964969; See also Jack Smith, Islam - the Cloak of Antichrist, WinePress Publishing, 2011, p. 93, ISBN: 9781606151587

Muhammad, being familiar with the traditions in Mecca as a young boy, knew the term "Allah" was used to refer to one's own pagan god, no matter which one they worshipped. The Kaaba was the cube-shaped building in which all the pagan idols for all the pagan gods worshipped by Arabs were kept in one convenient location, making it a frequent stop for pagans, and it still stands in Mecca today, worshipped by Muslims.

In the Kaaba, there was a god called "the supreme god," whose name was Hubal, with hu meaning "spirit," and bal meaning "master." Hubal was one of 360 pagan gods/idols in the Ka'aba.

"Since the Quraysh tribe's god was Hubal, then to the Quraysh and to Muhammad, Hubal was their Allah. So if they [Muhammad and the Quraysh tribe] were to talk about Allah (before the time of Islam) they would be referring to Hubal. To other Arabs who did not think Hubal was the chief god, Allah would be some other god... The idol Hubal was one of the 360, but he was considered by the Quraysh to be the chief god of that 'temple.'"
-Mark Davidson, Hidden in Plain Sight, Xulon Press, 2012, p. 54, ISBN: 9781619964969; See also Jack Smith, Islam - the Cloak of Antichrist, WinePress Publishing, 2011, p. 93, ISBN: 9781606151587

It can be a little difficult to find information on the Hubal/Allah connection, but that's because of most researchers' faithful trust in men to never lie. For example, the following author points to numerous Muslim documents that point to the Hubal/Allah connection, then concludes the following:
"[W]as Hubal rather than Allah 'Lord of the Ka'ba'? Probably not, else the Quran, which makes no mention of Hubal, would certainly have mentioned the contention."
-Francis E. Peters, Muhammad and the Origins of Islam, SUNY Press, 1994, p. 109, ISBN: 9780791418758

Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
-Jeremiah 17:5

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
-Psalm 118:8

So this author, after providing many numerous documents that demontrate that Hubal and the Muslim Allah are one in the same, concludes that it can't be true. Why? Because he believes there is no way Muhammad, the reciter of the Qur'an, would have ever lied, but those of us who understand that Muhammad was a liar can see the connection very clearly.

At the beginning of this article, we covered Muhammad's history, and how he went to war with Mecca to claim it. After conquering Mecca, Muhammad went to the Kaaba and declared his pagan god to be superior to the others.
"[Muhammad] then destroyed the 360 idols in and around the Kaabah, except Hubal. He proclaimed that Hubal wasn't just Allah for the Quraysh, but was Allah for everyone -- for the universe."
-Mark Davidson, Hidden in Plain Sight, Xulon Press, 2012, p. 54, ISBN: 9781619964969; See also Jack Smith, Islam - the Cloak of Antichrist, WinePress Publishing, 2011, p. 93, ISBN: 9781606151587

Hubal was a moon god, which is why the symbol on the Islamic flag is the cresent moon. There is no explanation provided by Muslim documentation to explain why the symbol for Islam is a cresent moon except for the Hubal/Allah connection.


On top of the origins of Allah, the doctrines of the Christian God of the Bible are polar opposite to the pagan god of the Qur'an, which we have already demonstrated. However, Muslims leaders continue to push the ecumenical lie in hopes that people will not do any research for themselves to find the truth.

Lie #2: Palestine is a nation of Arab refugees.
It's bad enough that Israel is being targeted by Muslims based on the pagan lies of their Qur'an, but it gets worse when we understand the lie that Palestine is Arab nationality. Most people would be shocked to hear this because CNN so regularly calls Muslims "Palestinian refugees," but there was never a Palestinian government, Palestinian currency, Palestinian history, etc, which means a nation called "Palestine" has NEVER existed.

In 70 A.D., the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and then rebuilt it with the alteration of putting a temple dedicated to the pagan god Jupiter on temple mount, where the House of the Lord God was supposed to be. The Jews had an uprising due to this desicration of Solomon's Temple to God, but the Romans brought in more troops and destroyed about a thousand villages to quell the rebellion.
(See Ken Jones, Jewish Reactions to the Destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, BRILL, 2011, ISBN: 9789004210271

"Jerusalem in 70 A.D. When the Jews rebelled, the Romans did not just defeat the rebels, they crucified, killed, or enslaved every person who had contributed to the rebellion... Josephus says one million, one hundred thousand Jews died in the siege and destruction of Jerusalem, while the Romans enslaved another ninety-five thousand."
-Roland L. Back, What Is the Antichrist-Islam Connection?, Lulu.com, 2007, p. 50, ISBN: 9781847285041

Because emperor Hadrian was so angry about the Jews resisting Rome's authority, in 135 A.D., he renamed the whole of Isreal to "Provincia Syria Palaestina," which uses the word 'province' or 'state' in conjunction with Syria Palaestina, which is referencing to a Middle Eastern people in the Bible we know in English as the "Philistines." In fact, the word 'Palestine' is of Latin origin, not Arabic, which points back to its Roman origin.

"In ancient times the entire region we now call the Middle East was called by the generic name 'Syria.' In the fifth century [B.C.] the Greek historian Herodotus referred to Philistia as Palaistine Suria (Philistine Syria), and later writers used the term to refer to all of what we now call Palestine. In 135 [A.D.] the emperor Hadrian changed the name of the region to Provincia Syria Palaestina, 'the Province of Philistine Syria,' and thereafter it was usually called simply Palaestina. By the time this worked its way into English it had become 'Palestine.'"
-Richard R. Losch, The Uttermost Part of the Earth: A Guide to Places in the Bible, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2005, p. 152, ISBN: 9780802828057

"From the fifth century [B.C.], Greeks called the eastern coast of the Mediterranean 'the Philistine Syria' using the Greek language form of the name... the Emperor Hadrian wanted to blot out the name of the Roman 'Provincia Judaea' [i.e. Judah] and so renamed it 'Provincia Syria Palaestina', the Latin version of the Greek name and the first use of the name as an administrative unit."
-Ze'Ev Shemer, Israel: And the Palestinian Nightmare, 2010, p. 17, ISBN: 9781450266604

Muslims and other religious peoples alike may immediately object to this because the news media has sobbed on and on about the poor Palestinian refugees (supposed to be Muslim Arabs), and how they were driven from their land by the evil Jews, but everything in history about Palestine is Jewish in origin! For example, the Palestine Symphony Orchestra is not an Arab orchestra; it's made up of Jewish people, and it was founded in 1936, before Israel was officially a nation again eight years later. Another example is the Palestine Post (see this link), which is a Jewish newspaper that was started in 1932, and was renamed The Jerusalem Post a few years after the reestablished Israeli government. The Palestinians are Jews, but a huge amount of controversy and war is over the lie that Arabs are Palestinians.

The most despicable thing about this is that Muslim leaders, religious and political, understand this concept, but they lie about it anyway because they know it makes them look good to the rest of the world, and as always, I'll prove what I'm saying. In the 1930s, before Israel was a nation, a well-known Arab political leader told the British Royal Commission of Inquiry:
"There is no such country as Palestine. Palestine is a term the Zionists invented."
-Awni Bey Abdul-Hadi, Testimony before the Peel Commission, 1937; See also Richard Booker, Radical Islam's War Against Israel, Christianity and the West, Destiny Image Publishers, 2011, ISBN: 9780768493153

Here's an Arab-American historian speaking to the Anglo-American Commission of Inquiry:
"There is no such thing as Palestine in Arab history, absolutely not."
-Philip Hitti, Testimony to the Anglo-American Commission of Inquiry, 1946; See also Efraim Karsh, Islamic Imperialism: A History, Yale University Press, 2007, p. 144, ISBN: 9780300122633

And this last quote from an Arab U.N. ambassador is extremely important in understanding the deception going on today:
"It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria."
-Ahmed Shuqeiri, Testimony to the UN Security Council, 1956; See also Mitchell G. Bard, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Middle East Conflict, Penguin, 2003, p. 77, 9780028644103

Ahmed Shuquiri was the Secretary General for the Arab League, and he just stated that he knows Israel (southern Syria) is Palestine, and that Palestine is a particular location, not a nation. However, this guy turned around eight years later and became the founder and first chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, which states on their website:
"We are proud to serve the State of Palestine by protecting and advancing the rights and interests of the Palestinian people in the international arena as we strive to end the Israeli occupation..."
-Palestine Liberation Organization, "Welcome Message," retrieved Apr 29, 2015, [palestineun.org/mission-team/ambassador/welcome-message]

The world believes the lie of Shuqeiri, and other Muslims, who changed their story when they realized they could trick the world into helping them take land away from the Jews. The Muslims have claimed that the land has always belonged to them, but the Bible tells us otherwise:

And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
-Genesis 12:5

Before Israel was given the name Israel by God, the land was named after Noah's grandson Canaan after he settled there.

Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
-Genesis 13:12

And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
-Genesis 17:8

God gave the Hebrews the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, which was later called Israel, which is today known as Palestine. The Muslims ought to know this (and many higher-ups do, but lie about it anyway) because the Qur'an says:
"Say, 'We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him.'"
-Qur'an, Ali'Imran 3:84, Sahih International

It's easy to see that most Muslims do not study their Qur'an very closely:
"[Moses] said, 'You have already known that none has sent down these [signs] except the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence, and indeed I think, O Pharaoh, that you are destroyed.' So he intended to drive them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him all together. And We said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, 'Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering.'"
-Qur'an, Surah 17:102-104, Sahih International

That land has never belonged to the Muslim Arabs, and even their pagan "Allah" said so. The oppression of the Jews in Israel today is coming from antisemites.

antisemite: a person who discriminates against or is prejudiced or hostile towards Jews
(See 'antisemite', Random House Dictionary, Random House Inc., 2013; See also Collins English Dictionary, 10th Edition, 2009)

An antisemitic person is someone who hates Jews just for being Jewish, which accurately describes the teachings of Islam and most Muslims around the world. Christians need to be aware that "Allah" is a false pagan god, named after the spirit master Hubal, and from that paganism arose a religion of peoples whose goal in life is hatred and destruction of the Jews.

And the Bible, in the book of Genesis which we just read from the Qur'an that the Muslims believe in, clearly tells us who inherits the land of Israel:

And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
-Genesis 15:13

The Muslims argue that the seed of Ishmael is the true lineage of God's people, but that is incorrect, because this prophecy (which Muslims believe) states that the land belongs to those who would be slaves in a foreign land for four hundred years. Muslims/Arabs have no such history. This can only describe the Jews, and in no way does it even remotely describe Muslim Arabs.

The Muslims, through study of the Qur'an, ought to be able to clearly see that the land of Israel does not belong to them, but the real trick of the mainstream media is to say that "Palestine became Israel," which is not true.

Joan Peters, who wrote for many magazines, and did TV documentaries for CBS and PBS, came out in her book, From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine, which revealed the truth behind the media propaganda that is slandering Israel. She has been hit hard by critiques for her thorough, 10-year long researched book. She had originally planned to write the book to show the world the horrible treatment of the Palestian Arab refugees by the oppressive Jewish people, but after she read the documentation, interviewed the citizens living in these regions, and researched the history of Syria and the Middle-East, she ended up writing the complete opposite, that it was the Arabs who have oppressed the Jews, and it is the Jews who are the refugees.

(Zola Levitt interview with Joan Caro/Peters, author of From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine)
@4:26--Joan quotes from her book, then stops to explain it: "All the myths surrounding the Arab 'Palestinians' are based on the same premises: 1) the 'Palestinian people' have had an identity with the land. Well, let's stop right there. First of all, the use of the term 'Palestinian people' as being Arabs is immediately a public relation coup because by calling them Palestinians, they are immediately identified with Palestine, and if they are identified with Palestine, then Israel is not. And if you say in 1948, Palestine became Israel, it appears that the Jews took over Palestine from the Arabs. But there were no Arab Palestinians, there never were was an Arab Palestine. The only Arab Palestine that existed, and exists, is Jordan [i.e. southern Syria], and the kingdom of Jordan became Palestine, but the king of Jordan... was assassinated for saying that Jordan was Palestine...
... next paragraph: 2) that identity, meaning the Palestinian-Arab identity, has been present for, quote 'thousands of years' unquote. It has never been present. There has never been a Palestinian identity--in fact, the Arabs would not be called Palestinians... they said we are Syrians, southern Syrans, we are anything but Palestinians. We will call ourselves Ottomans, Turks, but don't call us Palestinians...
... 3) The alien Jews quote 'returned after 2,000 years' unquote in 1948 to 'displace' the 'Palestinian Arabs' in the 'new' Jewish state... the alien Jews, first of all, the Jews are not alien. Even the most hostile British reports were available, like the Peel Commission Report [July 1937] which did actually trace Jewish history back in the Holy Land, all of them said there's always been a Jewish presence in the Holy Land, and that the Jews never left... displaced persons in the Middle-East were not the Arabs. They were the Jews. There were 900,000 or so who were forced to leave, to flee without their property from Arab countries in 1948. Nobody knows about the Jewish refugees. They are displaced."

I'd like to point out that Peters died in January of 2015, and before she passed, she was contacted by the Israeli ambassador, Ron Prosor, to thank her for her numerous contributions to spreading the truth about the Jewish refugees and the oppression that the mainstream media refuses to report. Some Jewish people named her the "Palestinian myth-smasher."
(See "Joan Caro/Peters, Author of Controversial 'From Time Immemorial,' Dies at 78," Haaretz, Jan 8, 2015, retrieved Apr 30, 2015, [haaretz.com/jewish-world/jewish-world-news/1.636109]

In her book, Joan pointed out that the Jews welcomed their Arab neighbors after Israel was officially a nation again, and told them that nothing would change, to continue normal business practices, freedom of religion, that they need not move from their homes, but the surrounding Arab countries warned the Muslims and Arabs in Palestine to leave because the Muslims were going to come in to kill the Jews, and that they should leave or be destroyed along with the Jews. The Arab people living in "Palestine" left freely on their own terms (out of fear for their lives at threat of the Muslims) without persectuion of any kind from the Jews, which means the whole conflict between Jews and Muslims is coming directly from the Muslims and their teachings in the Qur'an, and the U.N. is helping them deceive the whole world.

As Christians, we should do our best to remember that most Muslims have been deceived and brainwashed into Muhammad's corrupt and perverted thinking processes. These two lies are important in remembering that Islam is just another pagan, works-based religion, and that their oppression against the Jews, is fulfilling many of the prophecies of the Old Testament, and proves that the Bible is God's Word, and the Jews are His Chosen People.

There's a very important statement that was made by Joan Peters I'd like to end this section with. The host of the show in the video above quoted some Scripture to her. Peters was not familiar with the Bible, and she was speculating as to why this absurdity is happening so specifically to the Jewish people, that seemed to be no threat. The host read some of the following to her from Psalm 83:

Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
-Psalm 83:1-6

Joan, not a Christian or Jew, responded:
@25:56 - PETERS: "Wow. That's absolutely on target. That's incredible. That's a little scary... that's exactly--how can that be?"

We can only hope that she did see the Lord Jesus Christ and come to repentance. The prophecy of God's Word, written down thousands of years ago, is being fulfilled before our eyes, and it should give all men pause to consider the Bible.

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
-Zechariah 12:2-3





 

As more and more countries cower in fear of the pagan religion of Islam, so too are the mainstream, new-age preachers, treating Islam and Christianity as two sides of the same coin. This is blasphemy and heresy to those of us who understand the Word of God, and have discernment of His Spirit, but to those who do not, they follow and believe this false ecumenical message.

BILLY GRAHAM
We have already covered Billy Graham in another article, how he has flat-out denied the Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven on international television. He believes and teaches numerous false doctrines, so it's no wonder that he supports Islam in the ecumenical movement headed toward the one-world religion of the end-times.
(Read "Wolves in Costume: Billy Graham" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

(Billy Graham interviewed by British journalist David Frost in 1997.)
Frost: "Why is Isalm the fastest growing religion in the world?"

Graham: "The tremendous discipline that they have in Islam in the sense that there's a judgment if you do wrong, and there's a tremendous hope that people have that you are Islamic. Suppose you die on the battlefield fighting for Islam, the promises they give you for the first thousand years would make any young man say, 'Well, I think that's what I'd like to have.' They have so many things. And I think Islam is misunderstood too, because Mohammed had a great respect for Jesus, and he called Jesus the greatest of the prophets except himself. And I think that we're closer to Islam than we really think we are."
-Billy Graham, Interview with David Frost, "Talking with David Frost: Reverend Billy Graham," David Paradine Television, Feb 18, 1997

Graham attempts to merge Christianity to be close with the false "jesus" of the Qur'an. He thinks it's great that Muhammad taught these young men to blow themselves up out of sexual lust in the hopes for virgin wives that don't exist.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
-1 John 2:15-17

RICK WARREN
We have also provided a lengthy article on Rick Warren, showing revealing his desire to unite the world under a new-age banner that brings the world into the church. This false convert makes no apology for, nor effort to hide, his desire to yoke up with Muslims. (Read "Wolves in Costume: Rick Warren" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

"The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America's most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. The effort, informally dubbed King's Way, caps years of outreach between Warren and Muslims. Warren has broken Ramadan fasts at a Mission Viejo mosque, met Muslim leaders abroad and addressed 8,000 Muslims at a national convention in Washington D.C... 'I don't know if you have noticed this, but God likes variety,' Warren told an audience of 8,000 Muslims..."
-Jim Hinch, "Rick Warren Builds Bridge to Muslims," The Orange County Register, Mar 31, 2015, retrieved Apr 25, 2015, [ocregister.com/articles/muslims-341669-warren-saddleback.html]

Rick Warren has definitely been influencial in new-age "Christianity" that is full of heretics and apostates, influencing them to believe the lie that Allah and the Christian God of the Bible are one and the same, which makes me cringe just to type out in this article. His desire is to work on "inter-faith projects" because he wants to have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
-Ephesians 5:11

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
-2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Warren's yoking up with Islam should not be surprising. In the ceremonial prayer given by Warren at Obama's inauguration in 2009, Warren puts a very unique name on to "Jesus Christ:"

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
-Matthew 23:14

In the above video, during his prayer, Warren said many heretic things that defy the Word of God, but specifically to this topic, he called out Jesus in English, Greek, and Hebrew, but most importantly, he said "Isa," which is the name Muslims give the false "jesus" of the Qur'an. We already proved through Scripture earlier that the Muslim "jesus" is not the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible, but Rick Warren calls them one and the same because he is not of God.

Robert Schuller
Robert Schuller has also openly denied that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven on international television, and has done a huge amount to lead people to hell through the message of the ecumenical church. On his Hour of Power show, he invited on a Muslim sheikh to preach an ecumenical message.

"Sept. 10 at the famous Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove... more than 3,000 Muslims and Christians viewed 9:30 and 11 a.m. services in which Dr. Robert Schuller and Sheikh Salah Kuftaro, son of the Syrian grand mufti, discussed their shared belief in Jesus Christ. Hundreds of thousands more viewed the services when they were aired over Dr. Schuller's worldwide "Hour of Power" TV program. Commenting that he has met many of the world's religious leaders, including the pope, Dr. Schuller told the sheikh: 'I have never met a man of such spirituality and wisdom as that of your father. He is a spiritual giant.' Noting that the grand mufti told him the 17 million Syrians are all Christians, Dr. Schuller asked Sheikh Salah to comment on the grand mufti's description of a largely Muslim nation. "My father is absolutely correct," Sheikh Salah responded. 'A Muslim cannot be a true Muslim if he or she does not believe in the prophethood of Jesus, Moses, or any prophet of God. We Muslims are inspired by Jesus, Moses and Abraham, as much as by Muhammad.' Dr. Schuller then uttered an historic statement before the cameras: 'I apologize to Islam for the Christian Crusades of 1065,' he said. 'Let us begin a new crusade of comrade and friendship. We are in the same camp.'"

OTHERS
We will see more and more of this apostate message as time goes on, as is demonstrated by the Muslims' 138 signatures on a new document called A Common Word Between Us And You, which attemps to convince Christians that the Christian God of the Bible and Allah are one and the same. This document is talked about in a supportive manner by Focus on the Family:
"This form of interfaith dialogue is also finding its way into some Christian churches, as those congregations work side by side with other religions on community projects and relief programs for the poor. According to Pastor Ken Silva, vice-president of Evangelism Explosion North America, a ministry that trains people how to share their faith in Christ, this could be a great opportunity for sharing the gospel: 'We need to bless others and that includes all mankind who are created in God’s image, there is god-stuff in everyone. We all need common ground. In the context of interfaith dialogue, love people, show an interest and ask permission to share. Not from the standpoint of confrontation, but sharing ‘why I believe.’ More as personal disclosure and not debate.'"

What's especially sickening about this is that at the beginning of the article, I embedded a video of a teenage runaway in tears from her life being threatened on a daily basis by her Muslim family due to the fundamental teachings of Islam. She seeks refuge in Christ, and in Christians who would give her shelter, but these disgusting apostates seek to merge her former murderous religion together with their pseudo-christian heresy.





 



Question: What is Chrislam?

Chrislam is a name for the "Christian"/Islam merge. Although I've heard the term has been around since the 1980s, it's only gotten substantial attention within the past 15 years. It's primarily run by Muslims, as you can see if you visit the official Chrislam website.

"The Committee meets on regular basis in order to deal with issues related to the Islamic-Christian Dialogue and joint matters; in emergencies they keep their meetings opened in order to follow-up on field contacts necessary for specific actions in specific situations."
-Chrislam, "Members," chrislam.org, retrieved May 5, 2015, [chrislam.org/members.html]

This is where the media deception enters because people like Rick Warren has supposedly rebuked Chrislam in the apostate publication Christianity Today:
"QUESTION: Are you promoting Chrislam?
WARREN: Of course not. It's the lie that won't die. No matter how many times we refute it and correct that lie, people keep passing it on as truth."

-Ed Stetzer, "Rick Warren Interview on Muslims, Evangelism & Missions (Responding to Recent News Reports)," Christianity Today, Mar 2, 2012, retrieved May 5, 2015, [christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2012/march/rick-warren-interview-on-muslims-evangelism-missions.html]

Though Warren denies Chrislam in one area, as we saw earlier, Warren does exactly what the Chrislam committee is dedicated to doing, which connecting Christian and Muslim organizations together. In this video clip from the World Economic Forum, Rick Warren gives a short speech in which he calls Muslims his "brothers," and tells everyone that there's been enough talk because Muslims and Christians should be working as one together with the United Nations.

This is called double speak, or speaking with a double heart.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

In the end, according to the Qur'an, there is one goal: Kill all non-Muslims, and most especially, kill all Jews. And as we saw earlier in this article, Muslims are commanded to deceive nations into thinking they are allies and friends, while secretly wishing death upon them.
