A Muslim site called “Calling Christians” is maintained by an Abdoool by the name of Ijaz Ahmed. Like all Muslims, he tries his best to attack the Bible and destroys Islam in the process. We’ll go through some of his quotes and answer them.
If God is love (1 John 4:8), why are babies sent to burn in hell forever if they’re not baptised? How is this ‘loving’?10 Christian Riddles
In summary, Pharoah instructed Shiphrah and Puah to murder newborn Hebrew male babies. They did not follow through with the order as they feared God. They let the boys live. The Phraoah found out that they did not complete their task and summoned them to answer for their failure. They feigned innocence and ignorance by deceiving the king that they could not reach the women on time when they gave birth. Their lives were clearly spared by their deception and God rewarded them for their deed without reproaching their lie in any way. Is this not a clear example of dissimulation?The Bible teaches and promotes dissimulation
According to Surah 18:74, a story in the Qur’ān, Musa (Moses) is sent to learn from a man called al-Khidr. They come across a little boy who al-Khidr killed by cutting the little boy’s throat and smashing his head against a wall. Moses exclaimed he (al-Khidr) killed an innocent soul and accused him of doing an extremely evil thing.
The reason the boy was killed was due to fear of him becoming an “unbeliever.” This means the boy did nothing wrong, yet was killed on the assumption he would become an apostate. The gruesome details explain how this boy was killed, his throat was cut, and his head was torn off and smashed against a wall? Moses had enough sense to say you’ve killed an innocent soul (in this instance a young child).
Here’s the tafsir confirming that this little boy didn’t practice rebellion, it’s not like he was disobedient and was killed because of it (even though that would be evil as well). No! He was already destined to become an apostate. How can Allah be the most merciful but decree for a boy to be killed who committed no wrong yet? Both al-Jalalayn and Ibn Abbas are provided to prove the point that this was an evil unjust act.
The Tafsir of al-Jalalayn and Ibn-Abbas state that if this boy were to have had the opportunity to become an apostate, he would have negatively impacted the rest of the Muslims. And this was the “justification” for killing the boy, Allah is insecure in that he has a man to kill an innocent boy because he thinks this boy will cause others to leave Islam.
What’s more shocking is that Islam teaches determinism, in other words, Allah is the one who determined for this little boy to become an apostate! That’s how satanic the god of Islam is, let’s provide evidence from their sources.
If Allah decrees (fix) a man to commit adultery then why wouldn’t Allah also decree for this boy to become an apostate in order to have him killed? This is the evil of Islam, an unjust god who creates a person to be disobedient and then wants that individual killed for disobeying Allah when in reality they’re obeying Allah. This is ludicrous and completely illogical. Read the ramblings of Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid when he was asked the question:
Is it correct for a sinner to excuse his falling into sin by saying that this is what Allaah has decreed for him?Ruling on citing al-qadar (divine will and decree) as an excuse for committing sin or failing to do obligatory duties
In other words, the individual is unaware that Allah decreed for him to sin, therefore, this is proof of a person’s will? Regardless if this is unseen or not Allah loves sin and causes them to do so.
Also, if Ijaz wants to be consistent didn’t Allah kill babies in the flood during the time of Nuh (Noah)? This story can be found in a few places in the Qur’ān like Surah al-‘Ankabut 29:14-22, Surah Nuh 71:1-28 and Surah Hud 11:25-89.
There’s no teaching in the Bible which says babies go to hell because they are sinners, babies because of the fall when Adam sinned are not sinless they inherited a sinful nature from birth. But they have not personally committed any sins to be accounted guilty of before God.
In Islam, Allah kills little children who haven’t sinned! Islam is a nonsensical religion for those who have no functioning brain cells. Here’s a hadith from Sahih Muslim which goes against the claim that Islam doesn’t teach babies are punished for sin and sent to hell.
Aisha said to Muhammad there’s happiness for the child, which is a bird in paradise, as this baby didn’t commit sin. Muhammad tells her that this is not the case, babies are made for paradise and hell before they are born still being in the father’s loins.
Let us not forget Ijaz Ahmed said “If God is love (1 John 4:8), why are babies sent to burn in hell forever if they’re not baptised? How is this ‘loving’?” The Bible never says people (in this case babies) go to hell because they are not baptised. I wonder if he will change his mind and recant what he said, or will he continue to spout his nonsense and remain a massive hypocrite?
Muslims like Ijaz Ahmed are no different from the rest who try with their deceptive dawah to trick people into believing the nonsense in the Qur’ān. When we challenge their claims it’s abundantly clear all of the arguments they bring hold no weight, not only do they hold no weight but you find the hypocrisy in their beliefs. They say you believe a man is God yet Allah has body parts like a man and will come to Muslims in a shape they will recognise, massive hypocrisy! This is only part one stick around for part two to experience the comedy of the religion of Islam. And as always we don’t hate Muslims, we are only here to share the truth with them so that they may have their eyes open and come to Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour for eternal life (John 3:16).
 One of the questions people ask before they read my book is this: “If infants are not guilty of sin, then why do some infants die? Isn’t death a result, or wage, of sin?” That is a great question. Death is a result or wage of sin. And some infants die. But it does not follow that their deaths are a result of either personal or inherited guilt. Instead, death is the result of God’s universal judgment against sin. Even infants can be caught up in the horrible effects of living in a fallen world. Consider one example of the death of an infant in Scripture: David’s first son. Second Samuel 11 details the awful events of David’s adultery with Bathsheba. David’s cover-up ended in the death of her husband, Uriah. In chapter 12, the prophet Nathan confronted the king with a story that ended with the accusation, “You are the man!” Struck by that truth, David admitted his sin. God forgave David but announced that there would be severe consequences for his actions. One of those consequences was that the child in Bathsheba’s womb would die (12:14). Scripture tells us that the child was born and became sick. David fasted and begged God to spare his son’s life. But the infant died. Question: What sinful action did the infant commit in order to earn the punishment of death? The answer (of course): Nothing. The infant had done nothing wrong. The child didn’t die because of Adam’s sin. The text is clear that the child didn’t die because of his own sin. The child died as a direct result of David’s sin. Our sins can have horrible consequences for other people, including infants. Harwood, Adam. The Spiritual Condition of Infants : A Biblical-Historical Survey and Systematic Proposal.
