Muslims reject the Christian claim that Jesus is God, saying God cannot die. Christians also believe God cannot die, the contention comes when we proclaim Jesus Christ is God and was crucified, killed and buried. Therefore, because He was killed they reject Jesus is God.
Let’s not overlook that the Word (λόγος) is Eternal, and Jesus Christ is identified as the λόγος. He (Jesus) is Eternal, the uniqueness about the Lord Jesus is that while He’s God, He took upon Himself a second nature. To be more specific, God became human, only the Lord Jesus who is distinct in Person from the Father and the Holy Spirit became a real Man.
Therefore, being a real Man He subjected Himself to everything we as humans experience, Christ was subject to hunger “he afterward hungered” (Luke 4:2). He also became tired like a real human “Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey,” (John 4:6), He also slept at times “but he was asleep” (Matthew 8:24).
We should expect these things to happen if someone is a real human, but our Muslim friends would say that if God does anything like this it disqualifies Him from being God. Allah in the Qur’an never said he became human and doesn’t need rest, yet Allah has a throne (arsh), what’s the purpose of the throne of Allah does he sit on the throne or not? If he does that means Allah needs to rest, if he never sits on the throne then his throne is meaningless.
Thus, it is a significantly large `Arsh; none knows how great the size of its magnificence is except Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) Who created it (but we are told by the Prophet that it is very large). This `Arsh is like a dome stretching over the entire universe; it is the ceiling of the whole universe. It is also the ceiling of Paradise; nothing is above it except Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He).
Make no mistake the throne according to Muhammad, Islamic scholars and lay Muslim websites (abdurrahman.org) is large, how large they don’t know but it’s not imaginary. The question remains if the throne of Allah is real, does Allah ever sit on the throne? If he does then Allah is taking a rest, if he never sits on the throne then it’s meaningless.
This would mean because the Lord Jesus slept or ate when He was on Earth doesn’t take away the fact He’s God. And here’s the hypocrisy of Islam. There’s an ayat which says people who are killed are not dead. A distinction is made between the two words. It continues to say that these people who are killed are alive.
When Christians say Jesus Christ was crucified (killed), it doesn’t mean He’s remained dead, the Bible says that Christ rose from the dead after 3 days. He is victorious over death and the grave, death was not able to hold the Lord Jesus, “Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:” (Luke 24:46).
Why do our Muslim counterparts reject this when their Qur’an says those who are killed are not dead? It’s because they are in trouble and cannot answer this question. Unless they take the hypocritical road and simultaneously reject the Bible and Qur’an. The Qur’an says in [4:157] that Isa was crucified and Allah really deceived the people by placing an innocent man on the cross instead of Isa.
Isa is a coward, he’s not Jesus Christ! Isa was not willing to go to the cross, but Christ was ever willing and knew He would be crucified for the sins of the word. He mentioned to His disciples multiple times He would suffer and be killed and not stay dead. For He will raise Himself from the dead after 3 days. “The Son of man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he shall rise again” (Mark 9:31ASV).
According to this ayat in which the Jews reported of killing the Messiah Jesus, Muslims would say Allah caused or fooled the Jews. In believing Jesus was crucified by causing another man who looked like Jesus to be killed instead. This would make Allah a liar, in which the adherents of Islam are completely fine with their god being a deceiver. But we Christians know better, we understand who Allah really is, the father of lies Satan.
The Lord Jesus warned us about him saying “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44NIV). How these Muslims are so deceived following Satan to utter destruction!
Perhaps the better argument for Muslims is to claim Christ was crucified but is alive just as the Qur’an says in [2:154] agreeing with the Bible that Jesus Christ is alive. Either way they choose to answer Islam crumbles and cannot stand up against the truth of God’s Holy Word the Bible.
There are questions Islam cannot answer that Christianity can, (1) the fact that Allah has a throne he never sits on or does he which means he’s resting? This contradicts [2:255] which states Allah doesn’t “slumber nor sleep” and if he does rest. (2) If he has a throne (arsh) then Allah cannot be god according to the Qur’an because he needs to sit. Lastly, the Qur’an tells us that (3) those who are killed are not dead [2:154], just as Christians say Jesus Christ is alive, even though He was crucified at the cross of Calvary.
These are impossible questions for our Muslim friends to answer without contradicting the Qur’an. The Bible has the answers the Son of God took upon Himself a human nature “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself” (Philippians 2:8). Christ has two natures, there was a moment in time when Christ became a Man. But He (Jesus) for all eternity existed as God “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). This is why He raised Himself from the dead

i. Jesus calms the storm (4:35-41) With the series of parables closed, we enter a new section: here Jesus will be shown as Lord of nature. This is a new revelation in Mark, yet a very necessary one, if Jesus is God: for, both in the Law and in the Prophets, God is seen as Controller of the natural world and natural phenomena. The God who blew with an east wind and dried up the waters of the Red Sea before Israel his people (Exod. 14:21) is now about to make a path over the wind and waves of Gennesaret for the disciples, the new ‘people of God’. Already, Mark has shown Jesus as one who sees heaven opened, one upon whom the Spirit rests, who is responsive to the Spirit’s guidance, who enjoys angelic ministry, and who receives the testimony of demons to his divine nature. Jesus in Mark preaches and teaches with a new ring of authority: he heals the sick, expels demons and forgives sins. Now, only the one who had initially created the wind and sea in the ﬁrst place would dare to rebuke them so (verse 39): their instant obedience shows his full deity as Creator as well as Redeemer. The wondering question of his disciples in verse 41 shows that they realized in part at least the implications of his action here. It is signiﬁcant that no ‘nature miracles’ are recorded in Mark as having been performed by the apostles, although (as Anderson well points out) Mark would not have distinguished nature miracles sharply from healings and exorcisms, as we might do today. Apart from calming storms (here and 6:51), Mark records Jesus as multiplying loaves (6:41 and 8:6) and withering a ﬁg tree (11:20): he therefore accepts completely the power of Jesus over the natural world, as Son of God Cole, R.

(And say not of those who are killed in the way of Allah, “They are dead.” Nay, they are living,) indicates that the martyrs are alive and receiving their sustenance. (The souls of the martyrs are inside green birds and move about in Paradise wherever they wish. Then, they take refuge in lamps that are hanging under the Throne (of Allah). Your Lord looked at them and asked them, `What do you wish for’ They said, `What more could we wish for while You have favored us with what You have not favored any other of your creation’ He repeated the question again. When they realize that they will be asked (until they answer), they said, `We wish that You send us back to the earthly life, so that we fight in Your cause until we are killed in Your cause again,’ (because of what they enjoy of the rewards of martyrdom). The Lord then said, `I have written that they will not be returned to it (earthly life) again.) Imam Ahmad reported that `Abdur-Rahman bin Ka`b bin Malik narrated from his father that Allah’s Messenger said: (The believer’s soul is a bird that feeds on the trees of Paradise until Allah sends it back to its body when the person is resurrected.) This Hadith includes all the believers in its general meaning. Thus, the fact that the Qur’an mentions the martyrs in particular in the above Ayah serves to honor, glorify and favor them (although the other believers share the rewards they enjoy). Ibn-Kathir Tafsir Surah Al-Baqara 153
Any sensible honest person who has taken time to survey the world we live in can logically see the sun setting, but would they claim it sets in a pound or spring of water? Depending on where you’re located and have watched the sun set we can say it seems to set in an ocean, or behind mountains, even behind buildings etc. Muslims are blinded by the god of this world.
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
In Islam, we have teachings that the sun literally sets in a spring of warm water. This of course is completely wrong, are Muslims following a god who doesn’t know how a sunset works?
The Qur’an speaks about Dhu’l-Qarneyn otherwise known as Alexander the Great, stating he reached the place where the sun sets. The words “Until, when he reached” means he actually reached where the sun sets. Also, note there are people there as well “and he found near it a people” what’s the “it” here in this verse? It’s the sun!
Ibn ‘Abbas the cousin of Muhammad in his Tafsir says:
(Till, when he reached the setting place of the sun) where the sun sets, (he found it setting in a muddy spring) a blackened, muddy and stinking spring; it is also said that this means: a hot spring, (and found a people thereabout) these people were disbelievers: (We said: O Dhu’l-Qarnayn!) We inspired him (Either punish) either kill them until they accept to believe that there is no deity except Allah (or show them kindness) or you pardon them and let them be.
Obviously, Allah cannot be god and neither can the Qur’an be a book from god, as we know for a fact the sun doesn’t go into a muddy, stinking spring. The Qur’an is unscientific and has proven to be a false book.
Even their Hadith shows that Muhammad is a crazy man, also note how Shirk is committed. Muhammad was riding on a donkey and saw the sun setting, he asked his companion “Do you know where this sets?” He comes the Shirk! the reply was “Allah and his Apostle know best.”
Islam teaches a mere man called Muhammad had equal knowledge with Allah the god of Islam. This is why Muslim worship a man called Muhammad (the praised one) even his name is proof of Shirk. Only God is to be praised not a mere man who goes to the toilet (as Muslims argue) if that’s their standard.
The Qur’an cannot be a book from God as it’s scientifically incorrect, the sun doesn’t set in a muddy pool of water. There is no place in which you can reach the setting place of the sun. Muhammad even contradicted himself saying it sets in a pool of water, but also it sets under the throne of Allah. Which is it does it set in water or under Allah’s throne?
This is why we tell Muslims to reject Muhammad and the false religion of Islam. A person must completely abandon all logic and thought to the point of being brain-dead in order to believe this nonsense.
We call Muslims to the true and Living God who has given us the true Word of God Jesus Christ, He created all things and is the source of all life.
 Bible quotations in this article are from the KJV unless otherwise noted.
 It was narrated that Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said to Abu Dharr when the sun set: “Do you know where it goes?” I said: Allah and His Messenger know best. He said: “It goes and prostrates beneath the Throne, then it asks for permission (to rise) and permission is given to it. Soon it will prostrate, but it will not be accepted from it, and it will ask for permission (to rise) but permission will not be given to it; it will be said to it: “Go back to where you came from.’ So it will rise from its place of setting, and that is what Allah, may He be glorified, refers to in the verse (interpretation of the meaning): “And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing” [Yaa-Seen 36:38].
1 Corinthians 8:4-6 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that [there is] none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us [there is but] one God, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom [are] all things, and we by him.
Women who defend Islam and say that Islam gives women rights are shocking!! Islam is the most oppressive religion which gives all the rights to men. Men can marry 4 wives [4:3], but the women cannot, men in Jannah will have 72 virgins [Surah 55:70, 72, 74] to have sex with, women do not but are kept behind bars and are waiting for their husbands to call them for sex.
Men are valued more than women as 2 women are equal to 1 man, a man can be a witness in court while there need to be 2 women to testify in court because Islam teaches they (women) are deficient in intelligence [Sahih al-Bukhari 304]. All of these have been linked with references to Islamic sources.
These teachings from Islam are horrible, the true God of the Bible exhorts women giving them a proper place with men. The following Qur’anic verse says that if a man is on the road and has to “relive himself” or if he has “contacted women” but finds no water to clean himself, he can use “clean dirt” to wipe his face etc.
[4:43] … one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and find no water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands [with it]. …
According to this verse, women are dirty/unclean like human feces  how degrading is this? Yet why do we still hear women saying Islam makes men and women equal? This is simply not true. A Muslim sheikh called Assim al hakeem who has a YouTube channel by the same name assimalhakeem says concerning equality in Islam between men and women. He says this is “totally unislamic” You can watch the video provided linked to his channel.
Will Muslims say that he is an Islamaphobe? Or better yet that he’s a “Christian” who is spreading lies to deceive Muslims? This is what Muslim resort to when they find out the truth but yet want to deny it while staying in ignorance. If they are honest they will admit that the concept of equality between the two sexes in Islam is false.
Christianity is far superior as women are truly equal to men, while they have different roles the Bible tells us that men are to “Husbands, loveyourwives” (Ephesians 5:25)
I challenge any Muslim to provide Qur’an verses that command husbands to love their wives. The Bible tells us that women are “he is more precious than jewels;” (Proverbs 3:15NASB). A woman is greatly valued according to the Bible which also tells us “her worthis far above rubies” (Proverbs 31:10NKJV) and lastly those women who fear the LORD are commended by the Bible saying “she shallbepraised” (Proverbs 31:30). Only Christian women enjoy this treatment given by God through their godly husbands who show forth the love that Christ has for the church (Ephesians 5:25).
Women in Islam are seen as lower than men, any self-respecting woman can see that if she’s honest with herself. There’s even Hadith which put women in the same category as dogs and donkeys. You can read that in an earlier post titled: Islam Degrades Women Calling Them Animals? The Lord Jesus calls all women of every nation of both Jews and Gentiles to come to Him and receive Eternal Life (John 3:16) for the true Living God is the God of both (Romans 3:29).
We care for women and want them to have joy and peace, Islam doesn’t provide any but the Lord Jesus Christ offers abundantly more than you can ever imagine.

One of the 5 pillars of Islam is fasting, and Muslims for the month of Ramadan “fast” calling it a “holy month”. But there’s something that doesn’t seem right because during Ramadan the followers of Muhammad stuff their faces with food. Some startling statistics to share are the halt of production in Muslim-majority countries.
Ramadan is a religious ritual yet has significant social and economic impact. It follows a different pattern for office hours and is recognized by “less productivity” and more social gathering on “Iftar” and “Suhoor” meals. Productivity decreases from 35% to 50% due to shorten working hours, and inability to focus with no access to food or beverage till sunset and fewer hours of sleep.
The gluttony which ensues during Ramadan as food consumption goes through the roof, an increase of 50-100%! But Ramadan is supposed to be about fasting why are food bills skyrocketing?
Despite the fact that Ramadan is a fasting month, food consumption during the time of “Iftar” to “Suhoor” exceeds normal consumption pattern. Not only food bills increase by 50-100% during Ramadan, but it is reported that 83% of families change their food consumption habits during Ramadan. It is estimated that food consumption in Ramadan account for 15% of annual expenditure on food.
Tremendous weight gain is reported with all the food consumption during the month of Ramadan. Negative health effects are associated with the fasting of Ramadan as it’s not really the fasting, but the large amounts of food consumed before sunrise and after sunset.
Fasting and intermittent fasting, which generally does not include abstention from water, have been shown to improve health outcomes in chronic diseases [6–8]. By contrast, the long-term health benefits or risks of Ramadan fasting are unclear [5, 9–14]. In observant populations, general practices of Ramadan may include an iftar meal to break one’s fast after the sun sets and suhoor, a light pre-dawn meal . Ramadan meals may be calorie-dense, water abstention in warm climates may result in dehydration, overeating may occur before bed, and regular sleep patterns may be disturbed . Therefore, the physiological changes associated with Ramadan fasting differ from general, intermittent fasting ; the former may have unidentified effects when body functions are disrupted [5, 10].
Muslims love to make public displays of praying and fasting to somehow prove their piety, In the Bible we’re instructed not to be like the hypocrites who love performing deeds for getting the attention or praise of men “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them.” (Matthew 6:1)  Those who do so will not receive a reward from God for they are trying to portray themselves as self-righteous.
Ramadan is all about announcing to the world the month of fasting, this goes against what the God of the Bible said. Those Muslims who think they are gaining from their works by fasting and praying in the streets will in reality get nothing because they are hypocrites according to the Bible.
The Lord Jesus addresses fasting specifically saying don’t be a hypocrite like the Muslims by making your face sad or disfigured to have people notice they’re fasting. During this time they are promoting fasting which goes against what Christ said to do in secret.
Islam is an outward religion full of rituals but no spirituality, it’s a look at me religion as Muslims will occupy street corners in droves in order to pray. Christianity is completely the opposite, it’s inward and spiritual we are commanded to pray in secret. We are not out seeking attention because our relationship is between us and God directly.
Walking in the street you can spot Muslims quite easily, that’s because all the women must wear specific garb such as a Hijab, and men can choose to wear thobe’s (Thawb) and Kufis. That’s because all of Islam is outward appearance but Christianity is inward, therefore, you do not know who is a Christian unless they verbally confess they are.
Islam is a hypocritical religion in which they claim to fast but truthfully they are stuffing their faces to the point of gaining weight. Why are Muslims gaining weight when they should be losing weight? All their deeds are outward works in order to earn their salvation. Jesus Christ is against all of these practices and proves that Christ is not a Muslim as Islam claims. Do your own research and see if these things are true, if they are and you’re a Muslim I highly suggest for you to leave Islam.
 Bible quotations in this article are from the CSB.
 Matthew 6:2 Therefore when thou doest [thine] alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
There’s a thought in Islam that women are highly esteemed, Muslims will quickly point out that in the Qur’an there’s an entire Surah dedicated to the Islamic version of Mary (Maryam). Our quest today is to see how women in general (including Muslim women) are viewed.
Before we dive into the Islamic sources let’s briefly see how women in Christianity are viewed. Women in Christianity are highly valued and just as important as their male counterparts. While they both have different roles they complement each other.
Husbands, love your wives [seek the highest good for her and surround her with a caring, unselfish love], just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her
Husbands are commanded to love their wives as Christ loves the church and gave Himself for her (the church). We know Christ laid down His own life for the church, likewise, husbands should have unselfish Christlike love for their wives. Another writer in the Old Testament who is considered the wisest of men Solomon in Proverbs speaks on a woman’s value. She is described as a virtuous woman and “her price [is] far above rubies” (Proverbs 31:10KJV).
Take the time to read chapter 31 in the book of Proverbs and you’ll see just how highly valued godly women are. They are a blessing to their husbands and cherished. Now getting back into Islam we have this comment from a Muhammadan (mostafizurpranto4417) who said women are “precious things” in Islam they’re called “queen of the house”
Let’s find out if this is true? According to Islam, a prayer can be “annulled” or more simply said “severed” by 3 things. Those being a dog, a donkey and a woman.
Notice the words in the reaction of Aisha she was appalled and offended by what Muhammad said, she said “You have compared us (women) to donkeys and dogs”. Why are not men found in this list of things which cut off someone’s prayer? The value of women in Islam is that of an animal.
Muslims are shocked to learn that in Islam women are thought of as animals, I wonder if they consider the gravity of this statement. Do they not realise that Muhammad is saying their mother, grandmother, aunt and sister are no more than animals.
The same Muslim then wants to know where to find this particular Hadith, let me remind you he’s never heard of this hadith before otherwise he wouldn’t ask where to find it. Once presented with the Hadith you would assume he would conclude that he never heard of this and needs to look into this further by doing some research. Logical right? Now in the next 5 minutes, he’s become a scholar in this particular Hadith providing an answer.
Why the dishonesty? He said Muhammad didn’t compare the women to animals when the Hadith literally says “You have compared us (women) to donkeys and dogs”. He then contradicts himself saying “Comparing referred to here”. Wait but he just said “Muhammad did not compare” so which is it?
Why does the Hadith specifically target women lumping them with dogs and donkeys if this is not derogatory towards women? How about adding men to the Hadith if it has “nothing to do with the bad attribution”? All throughout Islamic teaching dogs are painted in a bad light and considered impure.
Muhammad had very nagative things to say about dogs saying black dogs are the devil  and he places women in the same list with dogs. What’s so bad about dogs? Yet the hypocrisy of their prophet is he took baths in filthy water which had dead dogs floating around in it.
He would have killed all dogs especially black dogs, why would he want to kill defenseless animals? It’s because he was pure evil and this is supposed to be a messenger of God?
Also I hope you picked up on the connotations of racism, why black dogs must be killed? Is it because Allah made white people from Adam’s right shoulder and will send them to paradise while the black people from Adam’s left shoulder will be sent to Hell?
Abud Darda’ reported God’s messenger as saying, “God created Adam when He created him and struck his right shoulder and brought forth his offspring white like small ants. And he struck his left shoulder and brought forth his offspring black as though they were charcoal. Then He said to the party on his right side, ‘To paradise, and I do not care’ and He said to the party in his left shoulder, ‘To hell, and I do not care’.”
Muhammad was a crazy man who hated women and dogs, the false notion that women are highly esteemed in Islam is a fabrication. Women are not allowed to marry 4 men but Muslim men can marry 4 women. Men can subjugate and dominate women even to the point of beating them 
If this is not enough Muhammad also said the majority of women will be in Hell-fire because they are deficient in intelligence because of getting their monthly menses (period) and are not of equal value to Muslim men. Any women who has self dignity would quickly leave this cult and stay far away from Islam.
Praise God for the truth in His Holy Word the Bible which gives women their rightful place, for fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10) and this makes her “praiseworthy” (Proverbs 31:30NET)
 Bible quotations in this article are from the AMP unless otherwise noted.
 Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand. [an-Nisa 4:34]
 Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: Once Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) of `Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 304]
We always hear from Muslims how Christians and Muhammadans worship the same God. I thought to compare some teachings between the two and see how they compare. This article touches upon how the Bible teaches believers
In the book of Proverbs written by Solomon, we’re told in the first chapter, not to allow sinners to entice us to commit sins. The verses in the following colour are commands from God for us to obey. And the other colour is what sinners say to entice others to partake in evil deeds.
Notice the sinner invites the person saying “come with us” and they thirst to shed blood “let us lay wait for blood.” They do this in the darkness to conceal their wickedness saying “let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause.” These murderous people want to “swallow them up alive as the grave,” their greed is all that matters to these killers “we shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil.” They entice to “cast in thy lot among us” it’s all about the money for them.
God says do not follow the path they are going down, to “refrain thy foot,” for Christians the Bible instructs us to not do such evil things. But this is not the same when we go to the Qur’an.
In comparison, Muslims are commanded to kill in the Qur’an. They are told to wait, ambush and slaughter non-Muslims, how can Muhammad be a “mercy” for mankind and he’s commanding people to murder? The ayat (verse) we’re referring to is found in Surat al-Tawbah.
Notice Muhammad says he will let them live if these people who are being hunted and killed by the Muslims “repent,” they are then forced to pay “zakah” alms (money). Comparing these two passages exposes Muhammad as a false prophet.
Going deeper into their own sources such as Ibn Kathir one of Islam’s biggest scholars. Here’s what he has to say about this particular verse.
(So when the Sacred Months have passed…), meaning, `Upon the end of the four months during which We prohibited you from fighting the idolators, and which is the grace period We gave them, then fight and kill the idolators wherever you may find them.’ Allah’s statement next, (then fight the Mushrikin wherever you find them), means, on the earth in general, except for the Sacred Area, for Allah said, (And fight not with them at Al-Masjid Al-Haram, unless they fight you there. But if they attack you, then fight them. )﴿2:191﴾ Allah said here, (and capture them), executing some and keeping some as prisoners, (and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush), do not wait until you find them. Rather, seek and besiege them in their areas and forts, gather intelligence about them in the various roads and fairways so that what is made wide looks ever smaller to them. This way, they will have no choice, but to die or embrace Islam,
This clearly is not a message from the true God (Yahweh) found in the Bible, He doesn’t command for believers to hunt down unbelievers and kill them. We know that Muslims will cite passages in the Old Testament when God commanded them to go into the land and kill the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites etc (Numbers 21:2-3; Deuteronomy 20:17; Joshua 6:17, 21).
God in the Bible always had specific reasons for His commands to the Israelites, it was not random. In Numbers 21:1 we read that the Canaanites took some of the Israelites as prisoners. In response to king of Arad attacking Israel God delivered the Canaanites into the hands of Israel as a judgement against them.
As for the Qur’anic verse above 9:5, the non-believers aren’t attacking the Muslims, taking a good look you will be hard-pressed to find the same situation. In fact, it’s the opposite, there was a treaty made with the polytheists. They (polytheists) were given 4 months to freely travel in the land and once the treaty is over Allah wants the Muslims to kill the polytheists. There are the proceeding verses leading up to the slaughter of unbelievers in 9:5.
Let’s make a few points with the above passage, please notice how Muhammad places himself on the same level as Allah saying “disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger.”
It’s simple to see that Allah is a demonic false god, actually Satan in disguise. Satan hates humanity and wants the human race to destroy itself and he will not stop until he accomplishes this goal.
How vastly different Yahweh and Allah are, in the Bible we read that God is love (1 John 4:8; 1 John 4:16). He is the source of love and, therefore, Christians are commanded to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27; Luke 6:35). In the Qur’an you will not find any passage that says Allah loves, or where Muhammad said to love your enemy; Islam is devoid of love because the false god of Islam is a god of hatred not love.
Allah spreads hatred and enmity “We have put enmity and hatred among them till the day of resurrection”[5:64]. In the Qur’an Allah also calls Christians and Jews (People of the book) the worst of creatures “They are the worst of creatures.”[98:6] and turned people into “apes and pigs”[5:60]. A quick study shows they are not the same. A challenge to all Muslims prove us wrong we are waiting.
 Their cruelty. They thirst after blood, and hate those that are innocent and never gave them any provocation, because by their honesty and industry they shame and condemn them: “Let us therefore lay wait for their blood, and lurk privily for them; they are conscious to themselves of no crime and consequently apprehensive of no danger, but travel unarmed; therefore we shall make the more easy prey of them. And, O how sweet it will be to swallow them up alive!” v. 12. These bloody men would do this as greedily as the hungry lion devours the lamb. If it be objected, “The remains of the murdered will betray the murderers;” they answer, “No danger of that; we will swallow them whole as those that are buried.” Who could imagine that human nature should degenerate so far that it should ever be a pleasure to one man to destroy another!

 Zakat (zakaat, zakah), or almsgiving, is one of the five pillars of Islam. This means that Zakat is mandatory for Muslims, along with the other four sacred pillars of prayer (salah), fasting (sawm), pilgrimage (Hajj) and belief in Allah and His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) (shahadah). For every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth over a certain amount – known as the Nisab – he or she must pay 2.5% of that wealth as Zakat. Islamic Relief (Worldwide) (2019) APA citation. Zakat.

 The name Hormah is explained by means of the term ‘put under the ban’ (RSV ‘utterly destroy’; Hebrew root hrm); at one time Israel carried out the ‘ban’ in the region of Hormah with regard to the ‘cities’ that were there and their inhabitants, i,e. by killing and destroying they handed everything over to Yahweh as the real victor and owner of the booty of war (there is a similar aetiology of the name Hormah, but set in a quite different historical context, in Judg. 1.I7).

Allah makes a challenge saying if we can find any contradiction then we would know that the Qur’an is not from god. Let’s take Allah up on his challenge and get him busted! First, let’s show the challenge so Muslims cannot say we are lying.
Here’s the Tafsir from one of their top scholars al-Jalalayn
What do they not ponder do they not contemplate the Qur’ān? and the marvellous truths contained in it. If it had been from other than God surely they would have found therein much inconsistency much contradiction in meaning and irregularity in arrangement.
The challenge from Allah is set and we fully accept this challenge, let us laugh together!
Earth Created First
Here in this verse, Allah says he created all (everything) that is on the Earth, so Allah created everything on Earth that’s the first step. The verse goes on to say then he directed himself to heaven and made them seven heavens, this is the second step. So Allah (1) created the Earth and (2) then created the heavens. Clear and simple.
Let’s quote two scholars to prove this is correct, let us take a look at al-Jalalayn and Ibn Kathir.
He it is Who created for you all that is in the earth that is the earth and all that is in it so that you may benefit from and learn lessons from it; then after creating the earth He turned to that is He made His object heaven and levelled them fa-sawwāhunna the pronoun -hunna refers to ‘heaven’ since it heaven is implicit in the import of the sentence attributed to it the pronoun that is to say He made them thus as He says in another verse fa-qadāhunna so He determined them Q. 4112 seven heavens and He has knowledge of all things in their totality and in their individual detail so do you not then think that the One who has the power to create this to begin with which is much greater than what you are also has the power to bring you back after death?
The Earth was created before Heaven Mujahid commented on Allah’s statement, (He it is Who created for you all that is on earth) “Allah created the earth before heaven, and when He created the earth, smoke burst out of it.
Allah created the Earth first  I provided the links to both Tafsirs from their scholars from their own Muslim websites, now let us laugh!
Heaven Created First
Now here’s the major contradiction in the Qur’an proving Allah is not god. In Surah 79 we’re given the steps of creation again, notice verse 27 says Allah constructed the heaven, raised it, darken its night etc. And after that He spread the earth?
Hold on but we just read in Surah 29 that Allah created the Earth first and then created the heaven. Then according to Surah 79 Allah created heaven first and then he created the Earth, the order is the opposite. This is a clear contradiction which proves Allah cannot be god. Let’s not forget Allah said in Surah 4 that if it’s not from him we’d find contradictions in it.
If Muslims are honest they would agree this cannot be true, Allah is the one talking and he doesn’t know which one he made first. Even their scholars said Allah created Earth first.
A challenge from us to any Dawah blogs here on WordPress, can you provide evidence against what we have just brought? We showed how the Qur’an has contradictions and cannot be from Allah even if we find just one, then you must reject it as being a false book. Let’s see how many Muslims will answer the call, I doubt any will bring proof.
Let’s see who has the courage to give us proof that the Qur’an has no contradictions. May our risen Lord Jesus Christ be forever magnified for His name is above all names including Muhammad the false prophet.
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set [him] at his own right hand in the heavenly [places], Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all [things] under his feet, and gave him [to be] the head over all [things] to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
 Simply: He is the Lord Who created all things on earth for you. Then He willed to create the sky and leveled seven skies and He is the Knower of everything. Imam Hasan Askari (a.s.) said: Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said: It means that Lord is He Who created all earthly things for you, so that you may gain good sense and lesson and may earn His pleasure and may save yourselves from Hellfire. Simply: Then He started creating and solidifying heavens (skies) and made seven skies.Exegesis of Surah Baqarah: Verses 1- 62 Tafsir Imam Hasan Askari
 The objective meaning of /daĥw‑ul‑ard/ is that, at first, the surface of the Earth was totally covered with water from the prime rainfalls, the water of which was gradually sucked down through the holes and ditches in the ground, and then, parts of the land appeared. It expanded little by little, until it formed its present state. (And this happened after the creation of heavens and the Earth.)Enlightening Commentary Light Holy Quran Vol 19
Allah created everything by saying “Be” is what Muslims tell us. If this is true then we shouldn’t find any other way in the Qur’an that says Allah created something without saying “Be.” For instance, if Allah says “Be” and then creates by some other means would make saying “Be” meaningless.
Allah should say “Be” and nothing else would be necessary in order for that object to be brought into existence. In the Qur’an there’s an ayat which speaks of the creation of the heavens in Surah al-Dhāriyāt.
The verse says in Arabic that Allah used his hands to create the heavens, the word (بِأَيْدٍ)bi-aydin means handsnot power as the translation above claims. Let’s take a look at all the deceptive translations in how they remove the word hands.
Sahih International: And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.
Pickthall: We have built the heaven with might, and We it is Who make the vast extent (thereof).
Yusuf Ali: With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: for it is We Who create the vastness of pace.
Shakir: And the heaven, We raised it high with power, and most surely We are the makers of things ample.
Mohsin Khan: With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.
Arberry: And heaven — We built it with might, and We extend it wide.
There’s one translation that I’ve seen which honestly translates the verse and uses the word “hands.”
Taking a look at the Arabic grammar, syntax and morphology for this verse on Qur’an Corpus.com shows how deceptive the translators are in trying to hide the word hands.
This is where gets Allah busted! The Arabic word once again in the text is بِأَيْدٍbi-aydin. Copy this word and place it into Google Translate and see what comes up for you, this is what I get when pasting it into Google Translate.
I also took the liberty of placing بِأَيْدٍbi-aydin into the Arabic dictionary to see how the word is used, notice there’s no entry for the words strength, power or might. But we do indeed find the entry for hands.
There you have it, Allah didn’t use the word “Be” to create the heavens, instead he used his hands the same way he used his hands in creating Adam. Muslims have the audacity to claim Christians worship a creation, that’s a big fat lie!
We believe that God came in the form of a Man, namely the Lord Jesus Christ. We do not believe that man has become god, there’s a major difference between the two. Here we have Allah using his hands to create the heaven, but Abdoools say Allah says “Be and it is.” This means Allah cannot be god, he had to use his hands in creating the heaven he never said “Be.”
Muslims are so against the notion that Allah cannot enter creation and is nothing like his creation. Yet we see Allah using his hands in making the heavens 51:47. So the question for Muslims is how is it you reject Jesus Christ as God, because He’s a Man. Yet Allah has hands, a foot, face, and a harsh (throne).
For Christians we don’t have this problem because we know that Yahweh can do anything, even coming in the form of a man (Jesus Christ). And we see this all through the scriptures that God spake to Moses from a burning bush in Exodus 3:2, we also know of the story of God appearing to Abraham in Mamre Genesis 18:1, He also wrestled with Jacob Genesis 32:25-32.
We don’t have a problem with this but Muslims do because Allah is not a personal god and doesn’t have relationships. Thank the LORD the true God of Israel found in the Holy Bible. He loves us and wants a personal relationship with us that He would persue us by coming into the world as the Lord Jesus Christ.
 [2:117] Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is.
 (And man is ever hasty.) Salman Al-Farisi and Ibn `Abbas mentioned the story of Adam, when he wanted to get up before his soul reached his feet. When his soul was breathed into him, it entered his body from his head downwards. When it reached his brain he sneezed, and said, “Al-Hamdu Lillah” (praise be to Allah), and Allah said, “May your Lord have mercy on you, O Adam.” When it reached his eyes, he opened them, and when it reached his body and limbs he started to stare at them in wonder. He wanted to get up before it reached his feet, but he could not. He said, “O Lord, make it happen before night comes.” Alim.org. Ibn-Kathir Al-Qur’an Tafsir Surah 17. Al-Israa . Ayah 11.

How many times have Muslims claimed “Jesus is a Muslim”, the argument is that Christ supposedly lived His life as a Muslim. Let’s be clear from the beginning, Christians disagree, and we proclaim that Jesus Christ is NOT Isa who’s found in the Qur’an.
I find it telling that Muslims try their hardest to somehow link the Biblical Jesus Christ with the Qur’an. Like a parasite, Islam feeds off of its host (Christianity), and Islam tries to validate itself in this way. Shabir Ally a Canadian Muslim preacher and Imam said:
The early Jesus sounds a lot like a Muslim prophet, a human being, and a messenger of God, like the prophets of the Old Testament. Of course, that does not mean that in all respects, we can reconstruct the history and know that Jesus was like a Muslim, but this is close enough. It is definitely closer than some of the theologies that are out there that present Jesus as God himself or a second person of the Holy Trinity. In the end, I think I can confidently assert that Jesus was a Muslim.
Let’s flip the script and see how Muhammad their prophet is a wanna-be Christian who worshipped the Trinity. Let’s go!
All Muslims must agree that Muhammad is the perfect example of what a Muslim aspires to be. How is it Muhammad was so obsessed with doing things in threes, he would also make the same statement 3 times.
How to Perform Wudu Three Times
Wudu is the Islamic act of making oneself purified before prayer. There are specific steps a person must perform but we’re not concerned with the steps, what we want to know is why Muhammad washed each limb three times (ثَلاَثًا ثَلاَثًا)?
In the following Sahih Hadith from al-Tirmidhi we have the Chapter: What Has Been Related About Wudu Three times (For Each Limb).
Let’s also point out the deceptive translations also, how is it possible that we have 1 sentence in English and look at the Arabic text. There’s a whole paragraph where’s all of that text?! It’s a mystery all of that text has vanished into thin air! 😂
The question is why does Muhammad feel the need to wash each limb 3 times, why not 4 times, why not 2 times, why not 10 times? It’s funny that he feels the need to do it 3 times. And we’ll provide the proof that Muslims do the same every time they prepare themselves to pray. The highlighted Arabic portion of the text says (سلم تَوَضَّأَ ثَلاَثًا ثَلاَثًا)“He performed ablution three by three.”
Muhammad gave the story of Adam and Moses who argued with one another, arguing that Moses accused Adam for mankind being kicked out of Jannah (Paradise).
According to Bukhari Muhammad says three times“So Adam confuted Moses, Adam confuted Moses” Muhammad loves the Trinity to the point that he needs to repeat a statement three times. Again why not two times or twenty times, why must he say it three times? More proof that Muhammad loves the Trinity and, therefore, he needs to make a statement three times.
Here’s another Hadith in which Muhammad repeated himself three times (ثَلاَثَ مَرَّاتٍ) once again Muhammad shows his love for the Trinity. Once again notice the discrepancy in the length of text between both English and Arabic, why are they afraid of translating.
Gulping Drinks Three Times
Muhammad is overtaken by the Trinity breathing three times while taking three gulps when he drinks. It’s funny that Islam teaches against the Trinity “say not Three” [4:171] [5:73].
How hypocritical that Muhammad felt the need to tell Muslims how he does everything in threes, Muhammad is a closet case, Christian.
Call To Prayer Three Times
Adhan is the Islamic call to public prayer prescribed at certain times of the day. Notice the obsession even between the call to prayer Muhammad felt the need to say things three times.
Ask Allah Three Times
Muhammad said if a Muslim asks Allah for paradise three times, he/she will be permitted into paradise. They can also seek refuge from being condemned to Hellfire by asking Allah to save them.
If Muslims are against the Trinity how is it that their prophet was constantly doing things in threes? Islam contradicts itself everywhere and shows that it’s a man-made religion.
Anyone who is honestly looking for truth by opening up Islamic sources such as Sunnah.com, just enter the words “three times” in the search. You’ll see how many things Muhammad did in threes, why not five times or two times? this shows the hypocrisy of Islam, their prophet secretly loves the Trinity but unfortunately, he had no idea what the Trinity is. You can read about that in the previous article Allah Is Wrong About The Trinity [4:171, 5:17].
This false god Allah has no idea what he’s talking about, he doesn’t know what the Trinity is and his “prophet” Muhammad is obsessed with the Trinity. For a religion that is so against the Trinity, why do they do all these rituals in three’s (Trinity)? Islam is a silly religion in which its followers are completely fooled by a crazy man called Muhammad.
 Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to breathe three times in the course of a drink (he used to drink in three gulps). [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. [Riyad as-Salihin 756]
 The adhan is the call given to announce that it is time for a particular obligatory Salah (ritual Prayer). Five times a day the adhan is raised from mosques throughout the world. It is a Sunnah (optional duty) that brings its own reward from Allah (God). islamonline.net (2022). The Adhan (The Call to Prayer).

The Qur’an is very confused when it comes to the Trinity, Allah doesn’t understand what the Trinity is and we are going to prove it today. First let’s define what the Bible teaches and what Christians believe in regards to the Trinity.
We believe: There’s one God (Deuteronomy 6:4), who exists as three co-equal, co-eternal and consubstantial divine persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit God (Matthew 28:19) is sovereign and self-existent (Exodus 3:14), and is perfectly omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, immutable (Genesis 17:1), holy, righteous and loving (Judges 13:18).
With that definition known let’s turn to the Qur’an and see if Allah understands the Trinity. According to Sūrah al-Nisāa Allah is trying to refute the idea of the Trinity “Say not Three (Trinity)”.
Allah is saying there’s 3 in the Trinity Say not: “Three (trinity)!” is that correct? Let’s make sure by going to the Islamic scholars this is fro mthe tafsir of Ibn Kathir:
(Say not: “Three!”) do not elevate `Isa and his mother to be gods with Allah. Allah is far holier than what they attribute to Him. In Surat Al-Ma’idah (chapter 5), Allah said,
Ibn Kathir says Christians are elevating Isa (Jesus) and his mother (Mary) to be gods along with Allah. Mistake number 1, Christians do not believe Mary is part of the Trinity. That’s just false, meaning Allah left out the Holy Spirit and inserted Mary by mistake. Even though they are wrong about Mary, at least in this verse they are saying Christians believe in 3 Persons as 1 God.
Here comes the big contradiction within the Qur’an. According to Sūrah al-Māidah 5:17 there’s a person missing in the Trinity. Reading the verse carefully the Qur’an says that Christians says Allah is Christ. In other words the Qur’an is saying Christians believe Jesus is the Father. That means the Qur’an left out a person and is saying there are only two people in the Trinity Jesus and Mary.
Are you getting it? This verse says the Messiah is Allah that makes 1 person, and Muslims believe Allah and Jesus are 2 different individuals. So if Jesus is Allah that’s 1 Person and the second Person is Mary so who’s the third person of the Trinity?
This contradiction proves the Qur’an has mistakes, no Christian believes Mary is part of the Trinity, and if Jesus is Allah then that only leaves 2 people. The 3rd person is missing from the Trinity. How can Allah be god and yet doesn’t know these fundamental beliefs. All Christians believe the Trinity is 3 distinct Persons who are co-equal in essence as the 1 God.
Muslims need to wake up and see that they have been lied to, their god has no undertsanding of the Trinity and the Qur’an is filled with mistakes. The Saviour of the world Jesus Christ is waiting for you to confess with your mouth that He is Lord.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Heretics will do mental gymnastics to the point that it’s hysterical, one such Heretic under the name of scottgrey2877 said Isaiah 53 is not about Jesus Christ but instead Isaiah wrote about Jeremiah. 😂😂😂
You can’t make this stuff up, where do Heretics get this from definitely not from the Bible!
Isaiah said that the Servant would bear our sins and suffer in our place. 700 years later, Jesus “himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24).
Jews for Jesus agrees that Isaiah 53 is about Jesus Christ and that He fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah of being the Suffering Servant. Another scholar of the Hebrew Scriptures Dr. Michael Brown who is Jewish also says in his book Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus says Isaiah 53 is about Christ.
Infact, Christian readers will immediately be struck by two parallels between this midrashic description of the sufferings of Messiah ben Ephraim and the very real sufferings of Jesus the Messiah: (1) Both are said to suffer for the sins of their people, Messiah ben Ephraim enduring pain and affliction while waiting to be revealed to Israel, Messiah Yeshua enduring mockery, savage flogging, and crucifixion at the very moment that most of Israel was rejecting him. (2) The sufferings of both are explained with reference to Isaiah53, the biblical text most frequently cited by followers of Jesus inorder to prove that the Hebrew Scriptures did, infact, point directly to him.
Brown, Michael L. Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus. 2, Theological Objections /, Baker Books, 2007.
Heretics will stoop to very low levels to misguide people into believing their false prophet Muhammad, but when they come across Christians who know how to engage with them they start to flounder, as we get them busted.
(1) 11:18-23 Here is the opposition which apparently took the prophet by surprise. He describes himself as being “like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter” (verse 19). you will find the same words used in a famous passage in Isa. 53:7 to describe the suffering servant of the Lord. This is only one among many indications that the experience of Jeremiah may have contributed to the portrait of the servant which we find in Isaiah chapters 40ff. Yet the same words can often mean different things. In Isa. 53:7 the words are used to describe how the servant was led like a lamb to the slaughter and all the while remained silent, accepting his fate without protest. Jeremiah, as we shall see, was anything but silent in the face of opposition. Bitter words of protest was often on his lips. The picture of the “gentle lamb” is used here to indicate that what happened took Jeremiah by surprise. Before he knew what was happening, they were out to get him: “I did not know it was against me they devised schemes,” (verse 19).
This guy is so confused, Isaiah 53 is a Messianic Prophecy about Jesus Christ, how do we know this? Well look at all the details contained within the passage, reading the entire chapter you’ll find lots of 3rd person personal pronouns. Notice the words “he”, “him”, “his” in this verse.
The verse speaks of the one who was wounded for transgressions, was Jeremiah wounded for transgressions no he was not, the one spoken of here was bruised for iniquities, once again Jeremiah was not bruised for iniquities. The one spoken of here endured chastisement for our peace, Jeremiah didn’t and lastly the one spoken here was given stripes and we are healed by them. Jeremiah never suffered any stripes (flogging) and we certainly not healed by Jeremiah.
Scottgrey2877 then evaded and said they pierced (not certain if he’s referring to Jeremiah or Jesus) His hands and feet but God preserved his flesh, what does this have to do with our question?The question is who was the one pierced as there is no evidence in the Bible for Jeremiah having his hands and feet pierced or being wounded for our transgressions.
Later in the book of Zechariah chapter 12 God Himself is speaking and God says “and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced,” and we know that God the Father was not pierced neither was the Holy Spirit pierced. Only the son of God was pierced no one else besides Him.
No one else besides God can pour the spirit of grace and supplications, will Scottgrey2877 claim that this is Jeremiah also? 😄 And God said they will look upon Him, this took place in the Gospels in multiple places but for the sake of brevity we’ll provide a references from the Gospel of John.
In John 19:34, 37 a soldier took a spear pierced the side of Christ, and blood and water came out. Then John links this with Zachariah 12:10, then in John 20:25 Thomas exclaimed that he wouldn’t believe that Christ rose form the dead unless he saw the pierced hands of the Lord Jesus.
And verse 20:27 Christ enters the room where the disciples are staying and He shows Thomas His pierced hands, and tells Thomas to not be faithless but believe.
Our Heretic friend Scottgrey2877 is deceiving himself saying Isaiah 53 is about Jeremiah, no where in the Bible does it teach or confirm such nonsense.
This person lives in a fantasy world and needs for his eyes to be opened by the grace of God. I pray that he’s not too far gone because the things he says are very far out there!! But our God is the living God and He saves, nothing is out of His hand. May scottgrey2877 come to Jesus Christ for etenral life.
 Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. (Zec 12:10; Mat 27:35; Mar 15:24; Luk 23:33; Jhn 19:23,37; Jhn 20:25,27.)
The Islamic thought is that Islam will dominate the world, so it’s no surprise that Muslims are very zealous in spreading the teaching of Islam. We know of these individuals who want to give dawah in different ways, some engage in giving dawah through debates, blogs, news, fake reaction videos, street booths etc.
There’s a group called Dawahpedia Projects in Canada that will target nominal Christians on the street corner and seek to convert them to Islam. It’s unfortunate because this nominal Christianity is what’s put forth in the public sphere, and sadly the world would think that’s Christianity. Wolves in sheep’s clothing have taken root preaching a false Gospel which has laid hold on helpless souls and we pray that the LORD of Host opens their eyes to the truth.
When they (Muslims) are faced with a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus who’s familiar with Islam’s deceptive tactics, these Muslims become flustered and do not know how to respond because they cannot control the conversation. Case in point wit the following comment from Dawahpedia Projects.
According to this Abdoool Dawahpedia, claims that Jesus is not the Word “OF” Allah, but the verse says Jesus is “His Word.” This Muslim is going against his own Qur’an. I want him to show anyone else called the “Word of Allah” or “His Word” etc. Any language similar to this of any one else besides Jesus.
Islam teaches that the word of Allah is eternal now this Abdoool has a choice he can either agree that Allah’s word is eternal, but he doesn’t want to admit that because that means Jesus would be eternal. The other option he has is to say Allah’s word is not eternal but created meaning the Qur’an is created and not eternal. Do you see the dilemma Muslims face when asked this question?
According to their own sources, the word of Allah is “Kalimatu minhu” (a Word from him) and wakalimatuhu (his Word) in referring to Jesus both have the same meaning saying Jesus came from Allah as his Word. This title is only given to Jesus, no other prophet bears the same title as Jesus including Muhammad.
Muslims try their best to downplay this unique title only given to Jesus, they will try to say that this refers to when Allah created Isa by saying “Be (kun fa-yakūnu) and it is.” The problem is that when you check out the word-for-word breakdown of the Arabic wakalimatuhu is a 3rd person masculine singular possessive pronoun, with special emphasis on the word possessive.
Possession would be in the genitive case translated “of” if we were studying the Greek New Testament in the Bible that would correlate to “the Son of God” indicating possession. We can confirm this when diving into how the word is used throughout the Qur’an by clicking on the link (wakalimatuhu) you’ll be directed to another page which displays every occurrence of the word.
Virgin birth -The Qur’an gives an account of the birth of Jesus in chapter 3. Mary is described as being a virgin, chosen by God, and considered with great honor. “Behold! the angels said: O Mary! Allah gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary.” [Qur’an 3:45] . Verse 47 relates the response of and to Mary, “She said: O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me? He said: ‘Even so: Allah creates what He wills: When He has decreed a plan, He merely says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is!” The Qur’an thus affirms and Muslims believe that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. The birth is seen as a sign (ayah) of Allah’s power and as a miraculous event. And Muslims have a high regard also for Mary. However, the Qur’an presents Jesus as the son of Mary and not as the Son of God, a significant point particularly emphasized.
Like Adam (pbuh) -Though the unique birth of Jesus with one parent is no indication of divinity just as Adam’s creation was without any parentage [Qur’an 3:59] .
The above quote from Islamicity.org speaks of the Islamic teaching that Adam and Isa (Jesus) were created in the same manner. Comparing the 2 they claim since Jesus had a mother and no father that’s not proof of diety because Adam had no father or mother. The problem with this comparison is that mankind had a beginning, therefore, of course, Adam didn’t have parents. But this doesn’t make him the same as Jesus, as this still doesn’t change the fact that Jesus is called the Word of Allah and a Spirit from Allah while Adam is not.
Also, the concept that Allah says “Be and it is” is not true. Allah created Adam using his hands from mud (clay) and then blew his spirit into him. Did Allah say “Be” before he used his hands to mould Adam or afterwards? If before then what’s the purpose of saying “Be” that’s like building a car and once you’re finished saying “Be” that makes no sense! You still used your hands to make the car the same as Allah made Adam.
If he said “Be” after moulding the clay with his hands makes no sense Allah still used mud and his hands to create Adam and THEN said “Be” after the fact? If we look into the account of how Isa (non-biblical Jesus) was created we see that he was not made with mud or clay, and Allah didn’t use his hands.
The creation of Isa involved Jibril blowing into Islamic Mary’s vagina found in the Surat l-anbiyāa (The Prophets). This is completely different from how Adam was created! The relevant verse is provided below, bear in mind the different translations and how they render the verse, keep in mind that words in the brackets  are not found in the Arabic.
Look at some of the rediculous and deceptive ways Muslims translate the verse. Halali & Khan says “We breathed into (the sleeves of ) her (shirt or garment)” since when do babies come from the sleeves of woman? Pickthall says “We breathed into (something)” so Allah doesn’t know what that “something” is? Saheeh International translates it as “We breathed into [garment]” again is Allah saying babies come from clothing, the god of Islam is in the dry cleaning business?
The Arabic is clear it says Jibril breathed into Mary’s vagina (فَرْجَهَا, farjaha) and Muslims claim they hold Mary in the highest honour, put the word in Google Translate and you’ll get “her vagina.”
Here’s a screenshot of the Arabic in Google Translate, try it for yourself.
There’s no way around it when we look directly at the sources of Islam instead of taking what Muslims tell us at face value we see they are not telling the truth. And that’s how these Muslim missionaries like Dawahpedia lie to people to deceive them into a false religious sex cult.
What have we learnt today? Well that Jesus is called “the Word of Allah and a spirit from Allah” this is a possessive noun in the genitive case. No other person in the Qur’an has this title, it belongs solely to Jesus. Adam and Jesus were not created the same, Allah used his hands in creating Adam, and Jibril blew into the false Mary’s vagina making her pregnant with Isa (fake Jesus). And this can be confirmed by copying the Arabic text and translating it through Google Translate.
Remember here we do not hate Muslims, we love them and want them to come to Jesus Christ for eternal life. Jesus Christ said He’s the only way to the Father, in other words unless you believe in the real Jesus who’s the Son of God who died on the cross and rose from the dead on the 3rd day. Then you’ll cannot have eternal life. Make a choice Muslims what’s it going to be Muhammad and the Qur’an or Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible?
 What is nominal Christianity? Nominalism can be understood as possessing a name, title, or label that is ultimately meaningless due to its empty formality. Thus, a nominal Christian is simply a “Christian” in name only. Though they may attend church services or may believe some of the basic doctrines of the Christian faith, they lack a true relationship with Christ and have failed to surrender the entirety of their lives to Him as their Lord and Savior by way of genuine faith and repentance. The church of Sardis is a prime example of nominal Christianity. Revelation 3:1 states, “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write…’I know your works, that you have a name of being alive, but you are dead.’” Though many in the church of Sardis claimed Christianity and performed many of the common church functions, Jesus boldly declared that their name was baseless, and they were spiritually dead. Though it may seem harsh or unloving, Jesus had compassion on these nominal Christians and was wanting to make them aware of the reality of their spiritual condition before it was too late.

15:26 Surely We created man of a clay of mudmoulded,
All cult leaders share in their desires and that’s money and women. In 1993 David Koresh ran his cult, the followers were called Davidians, he (Koresh) used the Bible as his authority to keep his followers in check. Another cult leader by the name of Michael Travesser founded his group in New Mexico, the community known as Strong City (Travesser) just like his predecessors took advantage of sleeping with the wives of other members and claimed that he was the son of God. Whether the cult leader is Jim Jones or Charles Manson they all have the same commonality they are charismatic and command their followers to obey them without question.
The cult of Islam is no different, Muhammad demands the same of Muslims, they must follow Muhammad in order to believe in Allah. Muhammad gave himself titles which belong only to God for instance his name means “the praised one.” He also gave himself special privileges no one else had like he alone could sleep with as many women and any woman he wants. And apparently his god Allah had an interest in pleasing Muhammad to the point that Islam teaches everything was made for Muhammad. Islam truly is an anti-christ religion for we know that Jesus Christ is the Creator who created all things (John 1:3).
The religion of Islam exists only to oppose the Lord Jesus Christ, and Muhammad wanted to take the place of Christ, therefore, he made his own religion causing many gullible people to follow him.
Muhammad’s Sexual Desire Granted By Allah?
The following verse was made by Muhammad giving him special privileges look at his far-reaching authority over his followers. Muhammad could sleep with his multiple wives, slaves who he possesses, nieces of aunts and uncles, and any believing woman who wants to offer herself to Muhammad.
The following are the commentaries (Tafsir) from the early Muslim scholars concerning 33:50. Both Ibn Abbas (the cousin of Muhammad) and al-Jalalayn say that only Muhammad was given the privilege to have any woman he wants.
Al-Jalalayn uses the word nikāh for marriage, in truth there’s no such thing as marriage in Islam. The word nikāh is actually a filthy word meaning the F word, I’ll just leave it as that.
Ibn Kathir in his Tafsir also comments on this verse, notice how the believing woman is passed around like a peice of meat. If Muhammad doesn’t want her then another man will take her for himself.
(and a believing woman if she offers herself to the Prophet, and the Prophet wishes to marry her — a privilege for you only,) means, `also lawful for you, O Prophet, is a believing woman if she offers herself to you, to marry her without a dowery, if you wish to do so.’ This Ayah includes two conditions. Imam Ahmad recorded from Sahl bin Sa`d As-Sa`idi that a woman came to the Messenger of Allah and said, “O Messenger of Allah, verily, I offer myself to you (for marriage).” She stood there for a long time, then a man stood up and said, “O Messenger of Allah, marry her to me if you do not want to marry her.’‘ The Messenger of Allah said:
What do Muhammad’s sex organs have to do with worshipping God? Nothing at all! It only serves for his own sexual desires and that’s why he created the Qur’an, to manipulate and control the people. Muhammad was busted by his child bride Aisha, at some point she saw through his lies saying, I see your god hastens to satisfy your desire found in Sahih Muslim 1464a.
Aisha knew that these “revelations” Muhammad claimed to have were lies, they were only Muhammad’s way of having sex with any woman he wants. And Aisha busted him to his face. Muhammad then had all sorts of women coming to sleep with him, including women he thought were not attractive. Muhammad couldn’t have this and came up with another “revelation” from Allah.
Muhammad’s Lust For Pretty Women
It’s funny Muhammad in his haste wanted all the attractive women for himself and came up with 33:50 Surat al-aḥzāb and in doing so he also had unattractive women wanting to sleep with him, and Muhammad didn’t like that. Muhammad had Allah “send” another “revelation” saying it was ok if he chose to say no to a woman he didn’t like.
This verse was made for Muhammad so that he could pick and choose which woman he wanted to have sexual intercourse with. A prophet shouldn’t be concerned with sleeping with women, a true prophet is concerned with delivering the message God has given them for the people.
Women who are in this religion are looked down upon as a 2nd class citizens, they have no rights, the only right they have in Islam is to be baby-making machines. Men can beat their wives, lie to them, divorce them for any reason, and have multiple wives. It’s really sick! In the Bible, we see that women are equal to men, and husbands are commanded to love their wives and cherish her just as Jesus Christ loves the church.
If you truly want love come to the One who sacrificed His own self so that you could have eternal life! The Son of God went to the cross bearing your sins in His own body and suffered the wrath you and I deserve as sinners. But He (Jesus Christ) is perfect He never sinned but out of love knew that the Romans would crucify Him and ridicule Him.

One of the polemic arguments Muslims pose to Christians is that Jesus Christ “prayed like a Muslim” if you’ve never heard this assertion you might become confused. Well, fret not because we’re going to prove without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord Jesus Christ was not a Muslim.
The 1st argument is that Jesus Christ while praying fell on His face, Muslims believe this is evidence that Christ is a Muslim. They read the words “fell on his face” and automatically believe Jesus Christ and others found in the Bible prayed like Muslims.
A few things to point out in this verse, when the Bible speaks of falling on their face it refers to a person laying face down on their stomach, not praying in the same prostration Muslims perform. Another point is in Matthew 26:39 and other verses Jesus Christ is calling God His Father, while Muslims are not allowed to call Allah father. Here are some verses in the Qur’ān which prove that Allah is father to no one.
When Christians pray we call God Father because through the new birth according to the Lord Jesus we’re made children of God (Matthew 5:9, Luke 20:36, John 11:52). The apostle Paul following in the steps of Christ also said we’re the children of God (Romans 8:16, Romans 8:21, Galatians 3:26), additionally, the apostle John also proclaimed that believers in Christ Jesus are children of God (1 John 3:10, 1 John 5:2).
Christians also pray in many ways, we also fall on our face (lay face down), get on our knees, look up to heaven and even pray sitting down. The importance is not on how you pray but just that you do pray. The fact that we call God Father distinguishes us from Muslims.
2nd point is Jesus Christ prayed “looking up to heaven” this destroys the claim that Christ was a Muslim as there are Hadiths which say your eyes will be snatched out if we look toward the sky during prayer.
If this Hadith is authentic, why weren’t the eyes of Jesus Christ snatched away when He prayed looking up to heaven? Many Christians including myself have on multiple occasions looked up to heaven while praying, and what do you know we still have our eyes.
Here we have 3 verses which speak of the Lord Jesus Christ looking up to heaven while He’s praying, Muslims don’t look to heaven when praying. This is solid evidence that Jesus was not a Muslim.
When we examine the Muslim claim against what the Bible says we see that all the lies of Islam die, without lies Islam dies. Jesus Christ called God Father, and the Qur’ān prohibits anyone from calling Allah, father. The Lord Jesus also gazed heavenward while praying this is something Muslims do not do while praying.
 The remainder of this article will examine passages from various books of the Bible and compare them to the way Muslims pray. The most recognisable posture in the Muslim prayer is touching the forehead to the ground. It is the apex of a person’s prayer and it is mentioned in the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad as the position in which a believer is as close to God as it is possible to be. “The nearest one comes to his Lord is when he is kowtowing.” Consider the following verses from the Bible. “And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed…” (Matthew 26:39) Aisha Stacey (2014, September 15).

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’?
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?
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?
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.

Have you ever heard Muslims say that Islam is a religion of peace? There are 2 types of Muslims the first one is fully aware that Islam teaches war against unbelievers, and that Muslims are not to take Kufir as friends. I’ve experienced this firsthand and these are followers of Muhammad who are staying true to what Islam teaches.
Groups such as ISIS are practising the true Islam as found in the Qur’ān and taught Muhammad the most obvious false prophet in history. The second group are Muslims who are genuinely sincere but are ignorant of the teachings of Islam, especially reverts who never looked into Islam for themselves.
While speaking with Abdoools they may quote Sūrat 5:32 sūrat l-māidah to prove Islam is a religion of peace, they might be as mentioned ignorant or purposefully trying to deceive people.
Sūrah 5:32 Prescribed For The Jews
Notice the first initial words at the start of verse 5:32 “For that cause We ordained for the Children of Israel”, so this verse is prescribed to the Jews, not Muslims. Continuing on the verse says “whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”.
I see why Muslims run to this verse to prove Islam is peaceful, the problem is this is not a command to the Muslims this was commanded for the Jews. Now, this verse was taken from the Mishnah, therefore, how can this be from Allah when the Mishnah is not from the Torah or the Injil?
In this second quote please note the Mishnah is speaking of the situation between Cain and Abel recorded in Genesis 4:10.
This is only found in the Bible, yet why are Muslims using this verse claiming Islam is about peace when it’s talking to the children of Israel? Muslims are not children of Israel, and again this is prescribed to the Jews according to the Qur’ān not the Muslims.
Islam is not an Abrahamic faith, only Judaism and Christianity are Abrahamic, Christianity started with Jews as the first believers in Jesus Christ were Jewish. Remember Muslims claim they are from Ishmael which also is not true according to Genesis 25:1-6, Arabs are actually descendants from Keturah.
Sūrah 5:33 Prescribed For the Muslims
Notice the vast difference between 5:32 and 5:33 as it goes on to speak of killing and crucifying others who happen to be non-Muslims.
Listen to what Muslims are supposed to do to those who are against Allah and Muhammad? “they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land.”, do these words sound peaceful? Cutting off limbs and crucifying people is the complete opposite of peace.
Why do Muslims claim Islam is a religion of peace and try to pass off a verse commanded to the Jews and show people who are ignorant of what Islam teaches? It’s either out of pure ignorance or to be deceitful. In the West, most people are extremely ignorant of Islam, but sites like these are here to speak the truth about Islam, that it would be exposed for what it is, that it’s a demonic religion.
 Meanwhile, Muslim crowds worldwide were hardly condemning the attacks. Besides the now-infamous Palestinians dancing in the streets for CNN’s cameramen at the news that the World Trade Center towers had collapsed, demonstrators around the world chanted their approval. These people were not all Wahhabis or uneducated mobs. “Reporters from Arab shores,” according to Johns Hopkins University professor Fouad Ajami, “tell us of afﬂuent men and women, some with years of education in American universities behind them, celebrating the cruel deed of Muhammad Atta and his hijackers.” A Libyan told the New York Times: “September 11 was the happiest day of my life.” As crowds chanted their approval of bin Laden’s terrorism, even imams who condemned the terrorist attacks declined opportunities to condemn also the imams who approved of the attacks— a fact with enormous signiﬁcance for the Bush/Blair attempts to portray the terrorists as a fringe group within Islam. Soon after September 11 , for example, Jake Tapper of the Internet magazine Salon tried to get the communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an American Muslim named Ibrahim Hooper, to speak out against Osama bin Laden. Hooper ducked: “We condemn terrorism, we condemn the attack on the buildings,” Hooper said. But why not condemn bin Laden by name, especially after President Bush has now stated that he was clearly responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks? “If Osama bin Laden was behind it, we condemn him by name,” Hooper said. But why the “if ” why qualify the response? Hooper said he resented the question. And what about prior acts of terror linked to bin Laden? Or that bin Laden has urged Muslims to kill Americans? Again, Hooper demurred, saying only that he condemns acts of terror. Both groups [CAIR and the American Muslim Council] also refuse to outright condemn Islamic terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. Spencer, Robert. Islam Unveiled : Disturbing Questions about the Worlds Fastest-Growing Faith, Encounter Books, 2003. (pp 16, 17).
One thing I appreciate about Muslims is the overabundance of comedy they provide, you can find an endless array of articles showing a lack of knowledge on their part. The strawman arguments and nonsensical rhetoric are astounding! Nonetheless, we care about Muslims and are taking every single argument captive and making it subject to Christ.
This Abdoool by the name of Dr. Haque who runs the site Always Truth! wrote an atrocious article on the Apostle Paul, let’s go through all of his claims to see if they hold up to scrutiny?
So called “Saint” Paul had been the bitterest enemy of Jesus throughout the life of Jesus according to Encyclopedia Brittanica! After Jesus (PBUH) temporarily left this world his enmity to Jesus continued and also against his true followers and his message; only it took a more clever, more shrewd turn; to kill Jesus teachings & message through inventing Jesus worship.
It’s true that Paul was a bitter enemy of Christ here we would agree, even Paul admits he went around killing Christians as Saul (Act 22:4, 26:11, 1 Corinthians 15:9, Galatians 1:13, 1:23). What this Abdoool won’t mention is how Paul was converted when he encountered the Risen Christ on the road to Damascus.
This Abdool (Dr. Haque) tries to deny Paul but let’s get him busted quickly from his Qur’ān. According to sūrat yā sīn 36:13-17 we’re told that 3 Messengers in total were sent to the city of Antioch.
The first two messengers that were sent are Sham`un (Peter) and Yuhanna (John), the people denied them and a 3rd messenger was sent. The name of the 3rd is Bulus (Paul) according to their own scholars. We’ll provide the tafsir from Ibn Kathir who says Paul was this 3rd messenger.
Dr. Haque doesn’t know his own Qur’ān as Kathir says Paul was a messenger of God. He also claims Paul “invented” worship of Jesus Christ. Let’s put that argument to rest as well. In John’s Gospel which was written before Paul’s letters we read how the disciples worshipped Jesus Christ and called Him God. One of the more known passages is doubting Thomas (John 20:28).
The context: Christ was crucified and buried the disciples were hiding from the Romans and Jewish leaders. Christ appeared to the first time but Thomas was not present. The disciples told him that Jesus appeared to them, but Thomas didn’t believe and said unless he saw the holes in Jesus’ hands and feet he wouldn’t believe.
The doors were shut as they stood in one of the disciple’s home (John 20:19) Jesus Christ appeared to them a second time, this time Thomas was present.
Thomas called Jesus his God! In Greek the wording is even more powerful Thomas says ὁ κύριός μου καὶ ὁ θεός μου (The Lord of me and the God of me) is the literal meaning in Greek. A challenge to the Abdoool Dr. to refute what the Bible says here. Even the Qur’ān shows that Jesus is God as he is called the word of Allah [4:171].
Barnabas companion of Paul brought him to James and Peter
… The closest despises like St. Barnabas and James strongly rejected Paul’s claims of divinity of Jesus and also his fabrication of original sin and Jesus being died for our sins.
The Abdoool Dr claims Barnabas and James rejected Paul. Notice how no references are given, Paul in the book of Acts which is written by Luke the physician says that they (Peter, James and John) sent Paul and Barnabas as beloved brothers.
Both Paul and Barnabas were representatives of the teachings of the apostles, therefore, they were all in agreement and taught the same doctrine. They gave Paul the right hand of fellowship found in the book of Galatians.
See how the Muslim argument cannot stand against the truth, they can lie as much as they like, like their prophet but it will not benefit them as we continue to demolish the lies of Islam.
Called Christians first in Antioch
The people who did not buy Paul’s claims were called Unitarians. The word Christianity was not there yet! Rabbi Paul did not try Jews to convert to his faith, rather his all efforts were to lure Non Jews wrongly called Gentiles which in Hebrew means bastard!
Nowhere in any of the manuscripts will you find the word “Unitarian” this is a lie. But we can show you in the Bible the word Christian, also the word Gentile doesn’t mean bastard. These Muslims have no honor and will lie non-stop.
Here is one of 3 verses which mentions the word Christian(s) but this Abdoool would have people to believe otherwise.
Next are 2 definitions for the word Gentile in Hebrew and Greek, none of them mention anything about the word bastard.
Do you see the deception dawah missionaries will try to get away with? This is Islam, lies and deception!
Paul Never Taught Christians To Commit Sin
Paul made his religion very delicious by saying Jesus paid for all your sins so feel free to commit these sins thus nullifying all the teachings of Jesus and all other true Prophets whose main purpose was to cleanse the society of crimes, sins, injustices, exploitation, oppression and suppression of common people! Paul also promoted the idea that kings and rulers are from God so don’t oppose them thus cementing king-clergy bond to exploits common people!
First look at the lie from this Abdoool, can you show us a reference Mr. Haque where Paul says Christians are allowed to commit sins? I would like a reference from the Bible otherwise you are lying.
The Lord Jesus was the first one to say He would give His life as a ransom paying for the sins of the world. And only those who accept the free gift of salvation will be saved. Those who reject it will only do so to their own detriment. Read the words of Christ.
References of Pagan Practices
On the other hand Paul gave clergies blackmailing power. After knowing the “sins” and crimes of common people the clergy were able to exploit the “sinners”. He even allowed adoption of pagan practices such as making pictures and statues in the Churches.
Another lie from the Muhammadian, a challenge to Dr. Abdoool to provide a reference that shows Paul said it’s ok to make pictures and statues. There are none! And he knows it, but his prophet indeed adopted pagan practices. Allah was worshipped by the pagan Arabs as one of many polytheistic gods found around the Kaaba.
Muhammad was french kissing stones, this is a practice from the pagan Arabs.
Muhammad was circling the Kaaba which is another pagan practice from the pagan Arabs, as they were worshipping the planet deities.
Verses in the Qur’ān provide proof the name Allah existed in pre-Islamic Arabia. Certain pagan tribes worshipped a god whom they called ‘Allah’ and whom attested to being the creator of heaven and earth, holding the highest position among the gods. The Quraish and other tribes believed in Allah, whom they believed as the “Lord of the House” (Kaaba). It’s clear that the Qur’ānic conception of Allah is not new.
Paul Taught The Same As Jesus’ To Love Our Enemies
This “sweet religion” later emerged as Christianity, in particular trinity type of Christianity. It attracted a lot of followers as it had backing of both kings and the corrupt, self serving immoral and unethical clergy. The Trinitarian Christian’s then started killing Unitarians who were actual true followers of Jesus. This topic is well covered by Ahmad Thompson in his book “Blood on the Cross”!
Once again this Muslim cannot prove anything from the Bible. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ told us to love our enemies, we don’t hate Muslims.
The same was taught by Paul the Apostle following in the footsteps of Christ, while there are many verses from the writings of Paul, we need only show a few to get the point across. Paul echos the words of Christ in Romans 12:14 telling believers to bless our enemies (εὐλογεῖτε τοὺς διώκοντας ὑμᾶς εὐλογεῖτε καὶ μὴ καταρᾶσθε)
Paul once again admonishes the believers in Rome telling them to feed and give drink to our enemies. These are the same teachings of Jesus Christ provided above in Matthew 5:44, as well as in Luke 6:27, 35.
The apostle Paul taught not to return evil for evil but to return good even if your enemies give evil. Even Paul is way above Muhammad.
Muhammad taught hatred and evil let’s show just a few examples found in the Islamic sources. First, let’s observe what the Qur’ān has to say about non-Muslims?
Muslims are forbidden to have non-Muslims as friends, we read this here in verse 3:28 and also in 5:51; 98:6 calling us “the worst of creatures”. Muhammad said he will expel the Jews and the Christians from the Arabian Peninsula.
Ibn Kathir in his Tafsir on verse 3:28 says Allah calls for the Muslims to curse non-Muslims in their hearts while pretending to be friends.
These are teachings of hate from Muhammad, there’s nothing Islam has to offer that is good. Even the verses which Muslims try to pass off as good are not verses speaking to the Muslims but to others. Paul was superior over Muhammad and taught love not hate.
Allah the Unjust god
Paul’s letters comprise about half of New Testament and his teachings more than half of all teachings of present day Christianity! His theories were ridiculous! Why the God, the King of kings can not forgive without sacrifice? Who can stop Him doing so? In Islam for example there is no concept of unforgiven original sin. Adam and Eve made mistake but they felt ashamed and the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful God forgave them when they repented. Every infant born is absolutely innocent and if a child dies he will go to paradise no matter in which religion he or she is born!
(1) “Why the God, the King of kings can not forgive without sacrifice?” God has prescribed the conditions on how mankind was to have atonement for sins.
This concept of sacrificing to God is not foreign to the Qur’ān as Abraham was given a sacrifice for his son (in the Qur’ān that being Ishmael instead of Isaac), we can find this in sūrat l-ṣāfāt.
Therefore, Muslims are completely unaware that this concept of sacrifices was taken from the Bible and used in the Qur’ān. We can find the actual story in Genesis 22, for our purposes we’ll show the relevant passage.
The angel of the LORD who’s known as God in the Old Testament is the one who called out to Abraham, the Qur’ān says “We” as in Allah called out to Abraham. Since the Qur’ān claims to confirm the scriptures before it namely the Torah and Injil, that means the Qur’ān is saying the angel of the LORD is God. As you very well see how the Qur’ān fails once you compare it to the word of God the Bible.
(2) “In Islam for example there is no concept of unforgiven original sin.” This is untrue, Adam and Moses debated on this subject in which Moses tried to blame Adam for getting humanity kicked out of Jannah. Adam said it was not his fault as Allah written his fate and it was something that had to happen as it was already decreed by Allah that Adam would sin and thereby get kicked out of Jannah.
(3) “Every infant born is absolutely innocent and if a child dies he will go to paradise no matter in which religion he or she is born!” Not according to their prophet who says children go to hell in Sahih Muslim 266c.
God Came Into the World to Save Sinners
Paul degrades the God all Might when he preaches, god nurturing in a human’s womb, being persecuted and being hanging on a cross! Why the God all Mighty will inflict Himself with such insults and Misery! These theories do not make any sense at all and that’s the reason many by name Christians do not believe in these and many revert to Islam that gives very logical and true answers to all these questions and remove all confusions and shows the straight path of success in both worlds!
The reason why Muslims cannot understand Christianity is because in Islam there’s no concept of justice, atonement or love. Allah has no love, the Qur’ān teaches Allah only loves those he chooses to love and hates those he chooses to hate. It seems his love or hate is in response to human behavior.
Allah is a distant god who doesn’t desire a loving relationship with his creation, Allah is too proud to bring himself to our level. Allah is too proud to bring himself to our level.
Allah is limited in his abilities, he cannot enter his creation, have a son or become a man, therefore, he’s not almighty. The moment you say that God “cannot” or question his ability means he’s not almighty, Allah is incapable of having a son because he NEEDS a wife in order to procreate like all humans according to sūrat l-anʿām.
Allah the Deceptive god
At. Barnabas had described in his gospel that it was not Jesus who was crucified but rather the traitor disciple who took bribe from the enemies of Jesus and brought Roman soldiers to arrest Jesus, his face was transformed to look like Jesus. This also explains ridiculous behavior while carrying cross and hanging on cross!
It was Allah who tricked people into believing Jesus was crucified, this is tantamount to deception as the Qur’ān says Allah is the best of deceivers.
Qur’ān is Not Preserved
The God all Mighty the Creator and providers of all of the universe and whatever it contains and beyond not only protected and saved Jesus physically but also his message and life in the final divine book i.e.; Quran. Quran is thus the absolutely authentic place where one can visit Jesus, his virgin mother who never married or dated anyone, his grand mother and other relatives!
This Abdoool said Allah’s message was protected yet in the Hasan (good) Hadith Aisha said that the verse of breastfeeding an adult 10 times and stoning was revealed to Muhammad but a sheep ate those verses. We want to know where those verses ae if the Qur’ān is preserved, can they recite the verse of breastfeeding?
If they can recite it I challenge any Muslim to provide the recitation of these verses. I guarantee they not one single Muslim can recite these verses. This means the Qur’ān has not been preserved.
The Qur’ān’s Conflicting Views With Science
Quran is the living miracle as it is the only book in the world that is preserved and ever fresh in its original language over 1450 years. It’s absolutely immune to the effects of time. It’s dust and rust free, word by word from the God and no conflict with science because writer of Quran and Science is One and the Same! There are no 2 versions of Quran. You go to any country and any mosque you will find exactly the same Quran.
He says the Qur’ān is not against science, let’s check this claim to see if it’s true. The Qur’ān describes how procreation works between a man and woman in sūrat l-ṭāriq.
In this verse what is the “gushing fluid” spoken of here? According to their scholars, this is sperm which man is created from, this is how the Tafsir describes it. al-Jalalayn says in his Tafsir.
The gushing fluid spoken of here is sperm and this sperm is coming from the man AND the WOMAN. This is completely against modern science as women cannot produce the sperm needed to fertilize an egg.
Ibn Kathir says in his Tafsir on Surah 86:6 that the sexual fluid bursting forth from BOTH the man AND the WOMAN creates a child, make note of the highlighted portions provided.
We’ve just read from a medical journal that women produce eggs not fluid which creates a child. It’s the egg of the woman and the sperm of a man that produces a baby. In Islam Allah is saying the white fluid from the man and the yellow fluid from the woman is what makes a baby. This is completely false! Are Abdoools saying that Allah doesn’t know how a baby is made?
That’s not all because Ibn Kathir also says that this sperm which comes from the woman is coming from her chest! Here’s another medical site which tells us that sperm cells are male gametes and function to find the female gamete in order to fuse together. This process happens when sperm enters the female sex organ through the male sex organ.
The article also says that sperm is made in the testicles, the male reproductive organs, not the female but the male.
What Islam teaches is completely against science so how can this Abdoool say that science supports the Qur’ān?
Qur’ān Was Translated And Forgotten
For something to be accepted as authentic it must be in its original language word by word from the God in its original language! Translations can never be equal to original! Even one word and one paragraph could be translated in so many ways! Only and Quran fulfills this condition and therefore it makes a perfect sense that Quran is the final divine book who is also entirely memorized by heart by millions!
Being that Mr.Haque rejects translations I guess he has nothing because even the Arabic Qur’ān was forgotten. Sahih Muslim says they used to recite a Surah that resembled Bara’at, but it was forgotten. Reading the words “and I have forgotten it”, shows that they don’t have the Qur’ān.
In the second highlighted portion it says there was a surah that resembled Musabbihat and it was forgotten, only a small portion was remembered. Again how does this help the so-called “perfect preservation” of the Qur’ān? Muslims don’t have the Qur’ān, the majority of Muslims recite the Qur’ān according to Hafs an Asim not according to Muhammad.
As you can see this Abdoool was busted and has nothing, he tried to attack Paul the Apostle but in his own books it says Paul is a messenger of Allah, and he taught the same as Jesus Christ. Paul was accepted by the Apostles Peter, James and John and was commissioned to preach the Gospel by the Lord Jesus Himself. Unfortunately for Dr. Haque Muhammad was a pagan who kissed black stones and worships a false god called Allah. The Qur’ān is not preserved and Islam is completely removed from science as it claims women produce sperm.
Muslims come to Jesus Christ only He can save you, start reading a better book which is the Bible. By trusting in the true God of the Bible only then will you make it to paradise.
 Women don’t produce sperm because they do not have the Y chromosome, which possess a gene that tells the body to produce male features. Humans, like all mammals, have two separate sexes. Most animals have two different sized games, where one sex produces a few large egg and the other sex produces lots and lots of smaller sperm. The theory is that this is to maximize the nutrients the young start with, the large energy rich egg, and the likelihood that the egg will get fertilized, using lots of sperm to ensure one makes it.

One trend you’ll find among Muslims is pretending to be Christian, saying they “reverted” (converted) to Islam, in order to dupe people into believing in Islam. Once you start to examine if this is true you’ll soon realise that it’s a farce. Susie Brackenborough is one such person who’s written an article for Islamonline.net claiming to have been a follower of Christ only to leave and become a Muslim. Either she’s being deceptive or just really ignorant of what true Christianity is, you can be the judge.
I Couldn’t Actually Say Why I Was Christian?
Being a practicing Christian for almost 16 of my 22 years of life, it may seem strange as to why I have turned to Islam. Not so I say! I was asked one day to “prove Christianity and why you are a Christian and not a Muslim” by a Muslim friend at university. I thought that this was going to be an easy task, but I couldn’t actually say why I was Christian, only this is the way that I had been brought up by my family. My research needed extensive reading and questioning. I would say to everyone who reads this whether Muslim or not – ‘ASK YOURSELF WHY YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU DO.’
There’s a huge red flag, Susie said she was a “Christian” for 16 years, yet she was only “Christian” by name being brought up by her family. This is not what constitutes being a Christian, being born into a family which professes to be Christian doesn’t make a person Christian. It’s like saying sleeping in an air hanger would make someone an aeroplane. It’s quite telling that someone who would make this statement knows absolutely nothing about Christianity.
To answer her question of why I believe what I do, is that the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the best historically attested event which stands against every criticism. There’s no one who has been able to debunk the Death and Resurrection of Christ.
The next few quotes from Susie prove she has no idea what Christianity teaches about Jesus Christ or any of the fundamental doctrines we hold.
So why wasn’t I satisfied with Christianity? Anybody who is going to really believe in something must know something about it. If I said to someone that a Porsche could go faster than a Skoda, for them to accept that fully they must have knowledge of what a Porsche and a Skoda are, otherwise if they accept what I say without knowledge they are living a life of ignorance and/or arrogance. Anybody who wanted to know the truth and why they agree to or follow a particular way would seek out why. So for me to accept Christianity I needed the knowledge about the fundamentals – the belief that Jesus (AS) was the son of God and that the Trinity existed are two fundamental points. It is not good enough just to accept this, as you believe what has been taught to you. For someone without knowledge about cars, the Porsche may indeed go faster than the Skoda in reality, but if I was a so called knowledgeable and respected person and I taught them that the Skoda is faster than the Porsche, then I would be believed by people who have not questioned what these two cars are really like and they take my word as they think that I have knowledge. But they would not be believing the truth.
She admits she lacks knowledge about the Lord Jesus or the Trinity, these are the 2 biggest points of contention when Christians engage with Muslims. The issue is that the Qur’ān gets both wrong here are past articles that explain how Islam gets it wrong.
We’re going to clear up Susie’s confusion starting with her first question.
The Son Of God And The Trinity … Is It Not Made Explicitly Clear In The Bible?
I believe that religion is not here to confuse us in any way and the message of Allah (SWT) is very clear; so my first question is – if Jesus (AS) is the son of God and the Trinity was what Christian people believe it to be, why is it not made explicitly clear in the Bible?
While the word Trinity is not in the Bible, the word Tawhid is not in the Qur’ān, but the teachings/concept of the Trinity is certainly in the Bible. In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 3 John the Baptist was asked by Jesus Christ to baptise Him. John shocked by the request immediately says “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” (Matthew 3:14).
Jesus tells Him that it’s necessary to fulfill all righteousness (Matthew 3:15), John then baptises Him and we’re introduced to the Trinity.
Notice in one moment in time we have all 3 Persons of the Trinity present (1), Jesus Christ, in the water (2) the Spirit of God also known as the Holy Spirit (3) a voice from heaven which is God the Father. How can Susie claim to have been a Christian for 16 years have she never seen this passage before? There are others, but let’s go to the Qur’ān to further prove our point.
In the Qur’ān we have a Trinity a false one but 3 nonetheless who are creators. Muslims agree that Allah is the creator, but what do they say to the fact that Allah admits he’s not the only creator.
This verse according to their own book claims that Allah is not the only creator, what do I mean by creator? Just to make it clear we’re not talking about someone making a painting or building a table etc. Muslims try to claim Allah is comparing himself to humans as “creators”. No! This is not what’s being spoken of here in this ayat. Allah is saying there are other creators (gods) but Allah is the best of all the other gods.
Additionally, the word l-khāliqīna as a genitive masculine noun showing possession. The genitive case focuses on the active participle “of” is what’s important, in this context Allah being the best of the creators.
So this means Susie’s god is not the only god according to the confession of Allah which makes Islam a polytheistic religion.
Was Jesus The Only Begotten Son Of God?
Was Jesus (AS) the only begotten son of God? No, quite clearly not. Long before Jesus (AS) was born, David (AS) said in Psalm 2:7, ‘I will declare the decree, the Lord hath said unto me, Thou are my Son; this day have I begotten thee.’ So, David (AS) is also God’s begotten son??!!!
David is not “the only begotten son of God” and neither was anyone else called the Only begotten Son of God as Jesus Christ is. Just for your own perusal, these are some translations of Psalm 2:7 and in none of these translations will you see the word “only”.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (KJV)
“I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. (NKJV)
The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. (NLT)
I will proclaim the LORD’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. (NIV)
I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. (ESV)
I will declare the LORD’s decree. He said to me, “You are my Son;[fn] today I have become your Father. (CSB)
Notice in none of the translations provided will you find the words “the only begotten son of God” in Psalm 2:7. But the Bible does say about Jesus Christ that He alone is the only begotten son of God. These are the relevant verses.
The Greek used for Jesus is τοῦ μονογενοῦς υἱοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ let’s break it down. The word τοῦ is a variation of the article and is a genitive singular masculine which means (of the) showing possession. The following word μονογενοῦς is also an adjective genitive singular masculine word which means (only begotten). We then have υἱοῦ a noun genitive singular masculine and means (Son), lastly, we have θεοῦ which is in the genitive case and means God.
The two following verses also say Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, so where is Susie getting her information from? It’s certainly not from the Bible.
Seems like Susie either never read the Bible or she lied claiming that there were others called the only begotten Son of God. But we’ve just proven that her statement is untrue.
He’s not the Son of God?
What is this?!! Jesus (AS) himself made clear that he is not the son of God. For example, Matthew 5:48, ‘Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father which is in heaven is perfect.’ So God is everyone’s father. Luke 4:41, ‘And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered not to speak for they knew that he was Christ.’ Luke 9:20-21, Jesus (AS) said to his disciples, ‘But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, “The Christ of God! And he straightly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing.’ If Jesus (AS) was the son of God, then why should he tell his disciples not to tell anyone this if everyone is to know and learn and believe this? The only explanation is that they were wrong to call him this and he was telling them so.
Seems like Susie is going against the Qur’ān using Matthew 5:48 to say that God is everyone’s Father. According to her Qur’ān, it says Allah is not the father of anyone, we can find this in Surah 19:88-93; 112:3
Why did she say Allah is everyone’s father when the Qur’ān says he’s not father to anyone is it out of ignorance or deception? Also, Jesus said He came down from heaven and He’s the Son which speaks of the deity of Christ.
Susie makes the claim that Jesus was telling the disciples not to tell people He’s the Son of God, but that’s not true. Jesus was saying not to let people know because it was not His time to come as King even though He already was. Jesus knew He had to come as the Lamb of God who would give His life on the cross for the sins of the world, that was His main purpose for His first advent.
If the people knew He was the Christ (Messiah) they wouldn’t have crucified Him. And if He was not crucified then there would be no salvation for anyone. The second point is that if the disciples were wrong according to Susie, then Allah’s message was corrupted. Let’s not forget the Qur’ān says the followers of Jesus would be superior until the day of judgement. If the message of Jesus was corrupted then Allah failed in making the believers of Jesus superior until the day of judgement as 3:52-55 says.
In the words of Jesus Christ, He said that He’s the Son of God, read and laugh Abdoola. Why did she not read this verse, I thought she was a Christian for 16 years and she never read these verses?
Associating others with God
Secondly the concept of the Trinity. Associating others with God, i.e. to believe in the Trinity has no foundation whatsoever in Islam. In Mark 12:29 Jesus (AS) himself said, The first of all Commandments is, Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.’ 1 Corinthians 8:4 ‘there is none other God but one.’ The truth about this mater is that the word ‘Trinity’ is not Biblical at all. The Canon’s answer was as follows: ‘The New Testament writers did not create the doctrine of the Trinity. It is an attempt, admittedly human (how could it be otherwise?), to express in words something of the inexpressible.’ This just sums it up. A human attempt to describe something inexpressible because it doesn’t exist!! Perhaps the clearest indication we have that Jesus (AS) and God are not equal, and therefore not one and the same, comes from John 14:28 when Jesus (AS) is quoted as saying: “My Father is greater than I.” When someone referred to him as good master in Luke 18:19 Jesus (AS) responded, “Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is God.” Furthermore, Jesus (AS) drew clear distinctions between himself and God when he is quoted to have said, John 8:42 “I proceeded forth and came from God, neither came I of myself but He sent me.’ Jesus (AS) gave clear evidence of his subordination to God, rather than his equality with God, when he said in Luke 22:42, “not my will but Thine be one” and in John 5:30, ” I seek not mine own will but the will of the Father which has sent me.” That Jesus (AS) would admit that he did not come into the world on his own initiative but was directed to do so, that he would acknowledge another being as greater than himself, that he would negate his own will in deference to affirming the will of another gives clear proof that Jesus (AS) is not the Supreme One and therefore Jesus (AS) is not equal to or even God.
It’s sad these arguments Brackenborough is spouting are the same weak arguments from dawah missionaries. Let us go through each to show how flawed Islam is.
Christians believe in 1 God (Deuteronomy 6:4) not 3 as Muslims set up Red Herrings and bring fallacious arguments, all Christians affirm belief in 1 God. All 3 Persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) are the 1 God as they are of the one essence of God. They are co-equal in Genesis the word Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) which is a plural word.
We’re in agreement that God created the world spoken of in the first verse of Genesis, in the second verse the Holy Spirit was also involved in the making of creation “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2). Lastly in John 1:1 the Word (Jesus Christ) also created the world, the proof is in verse 3 “All things were made by him” that is all things were made by Jesus Christ. All 3 were involved in the creation of the world.
We substantiate that Jesus is the Word of Allah in the Qur’ān [4:171] “The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word”.
There you go the Qur’ān says Jesus is the Word of Allah, Muhammad copied this from the Bible without knowing what the Word of God meant.
She mentioned 1 Corinthians 8:4, let’s point out her hypocrisy. This goes against the Muslim belief as they claim that Paul was a liar, saying he changed the teachings of Jesus Christ. Yet here she’s taking one of Paul’s writings and saying she agrees with Paul that God is one. This is what Paul said, that is the height of hypocrisy.
Muslims say that Paul is the one who created Christianity and made up a lie about Jesus being God, but this Muslima is using Paul to claim what he’s teaching is correct.
John 14:28 “my Father is greater than I” Muslims love this quote but fail to understand it, Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, He became a real Man who was surrounded by people who were trying to kill Him. This verse is not speaking of the deity of Christ as being “lesser” than the Father.
The Father was in heaven, therefore, technically speaking the Father was in a greater position than the Son as He (the Father) is untouchable in heaven. While Jesus was on Earth as a real Man surrounded by enimies and subjected Himself to everything humans would be subjected to.
She then assumes in Luke 18:19 that Jesus Christ is saying He’s not good? Talk about not knowing the scriptures, if you read again Christ is asking the rich young ruler a question. In essence He’s asking the rich young ruler a rhetorical question “are you calling me God because only God is good”
This verse actually goes against the Islamic claim and rejection of the deity of Christ, even though in their own Qur’ān Jesus can do things only Allah can do. First, Jesus is called pure in other words he’s Holy, in the Arberry translation he translates it “a boy most pure”.
In case there’s any doubt that this is what the verse says here’s the word for word syntax of this particular verse. Notice it says speaking of Isa “a son pure”.
So Jesus is pure and Holy, additionally he was able to speak from the cradle in the Qur’ān, no one else was able to accomplish this, the verse I’m referring to is Chapter 3 sūrat āl ʿim’rān. Not only is he pure, Holy and will speak from the cradle but he’s also called righteous.
Unfortunately, Muhammad is never spoken of in the same way as Jesus even in the Qur’ān. Let’s not forget that Jesus in the Qur’ān is the word of Allah, a spirit from Allah, Muslims cannot give an answer for 4:171 as Jesus is a spirit from Allah and his word. There’s also a verse that says Jesus heals the blind and lepers and is raising people from the dead.
That’s not all he also knows the unseen and can tell you what you hide in your house. This means Jesus has the same ability as Allah as in verse 2:33 Allah sees the unseen.
How is it Isa knows the unseen just like Allah, Isa can create life like Allah, he’s a word and spirit from Allah, and has the ability to speak from the cradle and is called Holy. These are all traits or attrubutes of God.
In John 8:42 Jesus Christ says He came from God, meaning He (Jesus) came from heaven, this corresponds to 4:171 in the Qur’ān which says Jesus is a spirit from Allah. Even though we don’t believe Isa is the true Jesus but Muhammad didn’t know what he was saying.
The Qur’ān says Jesus is a spirit from Allah, and he is a word from Allah sent to Mary, some of the other Muslim translations read:
Sahih International “His word which He directed to Mary”
Pickthall “His word which He conveyed unto Mary”
Yusuf Ali “His Word, which He bestowed on Mary”
Shakir “His Word which He communicated to Marium”
Muhammad Sarwar “His Word, and a spirit from Him whom He conveyed to Mary.”
Mohsin Khan “His Word, which He bestowed on Maryam”
Arberry “His Word that He committed to Mary”
Here’s the verse in John where Christ says He came from God, providing evidence that Jesus Christ is eternal. No one else can make this same claim.
This ties in with another verses where the Lord Jesus said He came down from heaven. I wonder how Abdoools would respond to these words from Jesus Himself?
John 6:38 proves that Jesus preexisted His incarnation this is why He can say He existed before Abraham. It’s a hard pill for Muslims to swallow. She mentioned Luke 22:42 and misquoted it, the word is “done” not “one”. She assumes that because the Father sent the Son that this somehow discredits Jesus Christ being God.
Let’s think about this logically, if a father told his son to go to the store for him does this in anyway indicate that the son is no longer human because the father sent him? No! That would be insane and silly to claim such. This is what Muslims do, they think because Jesus was sent by the Father this means He’s not God. As we’ve just showed this has nothing to do with the deity of Christ.
She mentioned John 5:30 indicating that Christ sought the Father’s will. The will of the Father is not different from the will of the Son as they are the One God, they work in complete union together.
Therefore, it’s not strange for Christ to say He wants to do the will of the Father. Jesus Christ is not rebellious and never sinned and will do what He was sent to do. This verse corresponds with Luke 22:42.
The Bible is a collection of 66 Books
The Bible is a collection of 66 Books covering two thousand years of history written over nearly a thousand years. Inaccuracies and contradictions are likely to occur as it was not kept pure and the language changed. It could be said that the Bible is a book of ‘Chinese Whispers’ in that the message had been passed on, in some cases, from eyewitnesses to their associates. Original manuscripts can change as they are copied out. Existing original material is almost non-existent. No entire original documents have survived. The language is untranslatable as time has changed the language and so earlier languages of the Bible cannot fully be understood. All there are are copies of the Gospels written hundreds of years after the original writing.
It’s funny that Susie says the Bible has “inaccuracies and contradictions” yet her prophet said he believes in the Bible, which means Muhammad believes in the inaccuracies and contradictions according to her.
I would like her to answer when was the Bible corrupted, was it before Muhammad’s time or during his time? Her claim of corruption goes against Allah, as he said none can change his words, as the Torah and Injil according to the Qur’ān are Allah’s words.
Other verses which speak no one being able to change Allah’s words are surah 6:115, 10:64, which means Allah is incapable and not powerful enough to protect his books. Let’s not forget all of the contradictions found in the Qur’ān, I’ll link to some articles which lays this argument.
Just like every other Muslim Susie speaks of something she has no knowledge of, in order to change an ancient manuscript the process would be impossible as we would be able to detect where those “changes occurred”.
In order for this to happen they would have to gather all existing manuscripts in the entire world. Not an easy task as they were distributed to different churches (Antioch, Corinth, Ephesus, Thessalonica, Rome, Colosse) not to mention any other place not recorded.
We’re talking about thousands upon thousands of manuscripts. Then in order to change the text, a pumice stone would be used. Using a pumice stone would cause damage to the manuscript itself. Lastly, we would be able to make out what text was laid down before the pumice stone was used. It’s just not physically possible.
The nail in the coffin is that the Qur’ān was the book not preserved, we have up to 40 different Arabic Qur’āns with different words and meanings. Plus there are missing verses in the Qur’ān like the breastfeeding verse eaten by a goat. Here’s the article speaking of the unpreserved Qur’ān.
Here’s the sum Susie Brackenborough has no clue what she’s talking about just like every Muslim. She has learned these nonsensical arguments and is parroting them. According to what we learned she was never a born-again Christian. While the word Trinity is not found in the bible the teaching is, but the word Tawhid is not found in the Qur’an.
The Lord Jesus is the ONLY Begotten Son of God and He is the Son of God. He’s called the Word of God found in both the Bible and Qur’an meaning He’s eternal. And the Bible has been preserved as we have plenty of manuscript evidence while the Qur’an has none! We’re calling Susie to come to Jesus Christ for salvation as He is the Living Word of God.
 Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The first one to introduce the innovated view that ‘Ali was infallible and that he should have been the caliph on the basis of religious texts was the leader of these hypocrites, ‘Abdullah ibn Saba’, who was originally Jewish, then pretended to be Muslim and aimed to corrupt the Islamic religion as Paul had corrupted the Christian religion.
 Ironically, Jesus withholds the anticipated answer. Does Jesus sense that the questioner, like the Pharisee in the previous parable (18:11-12), is overconfident or disingenuous? “Why do you call me good?” responds Jesus. “No one is good — except God alone.” The Greek me (v. 19, “me”) in the rhetorical question is positioned emphatically at the front of the sentence, “Why do you call me good?” Plummer calls the ruler’s address of Jesus “extraordinary,” for in Judaism God or Torah are rightly called good, but not rabbis. Jesus does not affirm his goodness but implies that his goodness is the goodness of God, the source of all goodness, working in him: “The Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees the Father doing” (John 5:19). Given Jesus’ servant posture and reticence regarding his messianic status, he directs the ruler unambiguously to God. “No one is good — except God alone” could also be translated “except the one God,” thus directing the ruler to the Shema (Deut 6:4).

 To begin, we must emphasize that out of these 150,000 variants, 99 percent hold virtually no significance whatsoever. Many of these variants simply involve a missing letter in a word; some involve reversing the order of two words (such as “Christ Jesus” instead of “Jesus Christ”); some may involve the absence of one or more insignificant words. Really, when all the facts are put on the table, only about 50 of the variants have any real significance– and even then, no doctrine of the Christian faith or any moral commandment is effected by them. For more than ninety-nine percent of the cases the original text can be reconstructed to a practical certainty. Ron Rhodes (2022). Manuscript Evidence for the Bible’s Reliability.

The purpose of this blog is to (1) reach out to Muslims who are stuck in the cult of Islam, to show them that only through Jesus Christ can they have salvation. As Jesus Himself said there’s no other way to heaven except through Himself (John 14:6). And (2) to inform Christians on how to respond to the Muslim claims against Christianity as there are unfortunately many Christians who are ignorant of the teachings of Islam.
This video shows such an intercation between a Christian woman and the Abdoools of Madinah Van who had to gang up on a woman. But they don’t dare to debate a Christian who has knowledge of what their Qur’an teaches. You can view the weak attempt from Medinah Van here and see how we destroy their silly arguments against the Bible.
Muslims typically claim that Jesus was only sent to Israel, this is not true. If they knew the context of scripture they wouldn’t make this mistake. Christ was sent to Israel first and then the Gentiles. He came to bring salvation to the entire world not only Israel, the following verses prove this point.
The Gospel of John chapter 3 verse 15 says that anyone (whosoever) believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life. If language is how we are to communicate then the word whosoever (πᾶς) means exactly what it means anyone regardless if they are a Jew or Gentile.
If we parsed πᾶς so that we know how the word functions in John 3:15 we’d get:
After parsing the word we know the subject (Nominative) is personal in Number (Singular) meaning anyone willing to trust in Christ can come to Him for salvation. It’s personal, between you and your Creator.
The following verse 1 John 4:9 explains that God sent the Lord Jesus into the world (κόσμον) for us that we would live through Christ. The world doesn’t encompass the Jews only, in fact, the Jews are a very small minority when compared to all the other nations in the world.
Jesus came for all mankind including Muslims who are willing to place their faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Only those who do so will make it to heaven, the others who deceive and reject the salvation Jesus offers will find themselves in grave trouble on the day of judgement. As they will face Jesus as their judge, not their Saviour.
We then have the teachings of Paul in which the Abdoool on the video claimed apostle Paul taught contrary to Jesus Christ. Here we have in 2 Corinthians 5:19 Paul said Christ was reconciling the world to Himself. This is in line with the 2 verses above.
To reconcile (καταλλάσσων) is to bring onto Himself, and that’s what Christ did at the cross of Calvary, He was atoning for the sins of the world. That’s the wonderful message that He gave Himself for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2).
Once again Paul who taught the same as the Messiah said Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners (ἁμαρτωλοὺς). Muslims are sinners, and so is Muhammad, unfortunately their prophet is suffering in hell for rejecting the salvation only Jesus can provide.
Let’s continue demolishing the lies of the Dawah Van, as we see Christ came for the whole world not only Israel as the Abdoool said.
The truth was “for” Jesus?
“We believe that Jesus He was upon the truth, the Way the truth and the Life was for Jesus”
The Lord Jesus Christ was the one who brought not “a” truth but the Truth, He is that truth! In John 14:6 Christ authoritatively declared this to those who were around.
It’s wonderful that we have the New Testament in the original language and if you’re capable of reading Greek would know that the word ἡ ἀλήθεια has the article which means The Truth. If Jesus Christ is the source of all truth then this would be a claim of deity as only God is absolute truth. We find in the Qur’an that Allah is called the truth, this is not looking good for the Muslims.
If we take the words of Jesus Christ with what the Qur’an is saying this means Jesus claimed to be Allah, but we already know that Allah of the Qur’an doesn’t exist. If we take a look at the Arabic text and review the nouns used in this verse we’d see.
The accusative word l-laha is an accusative noun pointing to Allah and the nominative masculine word l-ḥaqu is the subject of the verse. The same as in John 14:6 Jesus is the subject of the verse ὁ Ἰησοῦς (nominative masculine). What in the world are the mutah boys of Dawah Van going to do with this one?
Clearly, the Qur’an says objectively states God is the truth and Jesus in the Bible (John 14:6) which was written hundreds of years before the Qur’an says Jesus Christ is The Truth. This destroys the Islamic claim in which Muslims reject Jesus as God.
The Comforter is Muhammad?
“If I don’t go the comforter will not come and when the comforter comes He’ll mention of me He’ll tell you many things to come and we believe that comforter is prophet Muhammad”
This claim from Abdoools is beyond silly when they claim Muhammad is the comforter they are essentially saying Muhammad is their god. In the same chapter in which Christ says He’s The Truth an attribute only God possesses. Now He tells us who the Comforter, the Holy Spirit is.
Notice in the same verse Christ identifies who the Comforter is saying He’s the Holy Ghost who the Father will send in the name of Jesus Christ (“my name”). Do Muslims believe Muhammad came in the name of Jesus Christ? No they do not, but they do believe Allah sent him (John 14:6). Additionally, in Islam Muslims claim the “holy spirit” is Jibril.
If the Comforter is another name for the Holy Spirit how can Muhammad be the comforter? Let’s prove this nonsense and get them busted. According to one of their trusted websites, Islamqa here’s what they say about Muhammad being supposedly found in the Bible.
These two verses  indicate that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel (the Bible), no matter how much the Jews and Christians claim that he is not, for the word of Allaah is the best and most truthful of words.
They then quoted a few verses from the Bible for the proof of Muhammad’s existence in the Bible one of those being the Gospel of John 16:6-8, 12-13. These same verses refute the claim of Muhammad being the comforter as the comforter is sent by Jesus Christ notice the words “I will send him unto you”.
But in Islam Muhammad is sent by Allah, how can Abdoool reconcile this other than admitting Jesus Christ is Allah. They also claim Muhammad is “the Spirit of truth” the problem is the Spirit of truth is going to glorify Jesus. Again notice the words “He shall glorify me” in verse 14 this is Jesus speaking.
Unless they’d like to admit Muhammad is sent by Jesus and will glorify Jesus Christ there’s no getting around these verses.
Jesus Never Mentioned He’s the Son of God?
“he never in a single entirety of the Bible He never called Himself the Son of God.”
This is not looking good for the guys at Dawah Van, in the video, the Abdoool said Jesus never called Himself the Son of God. The term Son of God was mostly used by others declaring that Christ is the Son of God, and Jesus Christ never rejected this He always accepted this title. Here we have Christ referring to Himself as the Son of God in John 5:24-26.
The Lord Jesus is the one speaking in this passage, notice the personal pronouns “I”, and “my”, went as far to say those who are dead would hear Jesus’ voice and come out of the graves. This can only mean that Christ by the power of His word/speech can bring people back from the dead. This is a claim of deity as there is no one else who can do this.
Again Jesus in speaking to the blind man, He gave him sight mentioned if the blind name believed on Christ as the Son of God. This was after the Pharisees banned the no longer blind man from worshipping in the temple.
We easily demolish Muslim arguments here on this blog, they don’t stand a chance against God’s true word the Bible. Here’s the nail in the coffin of the Dawah Van mutah boys, in John 10:36 there’s a great discourse between the religious rulers and Jesus Christ.
In John 10:30 Jesus made this statement which caused the Jews to have a meltdown saying “I and my Father are one.” The reaction from the Jews says it all as they picked up stones to kill Jesus as they knew He was claiming equality with God the Father, that’s why they said He’s making Himself God.
Jesus said that His anything the Father can do Jesus Christ can do, in plain terms anything God can do Jesus can do because He’s God. Notice the Jews accused Christ of blasphemy and Jesus said how can that be because He (Jesus) said He’s the Son of God. So why are Dawah Abdoools lying when they said Jesus never said He’s the Son of God? That’s because Islam teaches you can lie.
Here we back up our claims with proof but if you notice as you watch their video they jump over important points. They love to quote John 17:3 which actually proves once again Jesus is God because this verse is saying that Jesus along with the Father is the one true God. It’s a conjunction bringing the two objects of the verse together (ἀληθινὸν θεὸνκαὶ ὃν ἀπέστειλας Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν). I’ve bolded the καὶ which is the conjunctive word and both θεὸν and Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν are in the accusative singular.
 (10:31-9) The evangelist continues to stress that Jesus is God’s Son. w. 31-3, first in v. 33 the Jews indicate blasphemy as the reason why they want to stone Jesus (cf. Lev 24:16). As in 8:59 it is an attempt to kill him without official trial. In the synoptic tradition Jesus is accused of blasphemy when he forgives sins (Mk 2:5-7 Par), and when he speaks of the coming Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power (Mk 14:62— 4 par.). Probably all propositions that questioned God’s uniqueness were considered as blasphemy in Jesus’ time (cf. 5:18). Ironically the Jews speak the truth: for the evangelist Jesus is in a certain sense ‘God’. ‘Good’ is used in 2:10 of the wine, and in 10:11,14 in reference to the shepherd. The good shepherd is sent by the Father, and therefore his work exhibits the Father’s goodness (cf. v. 25). w. 34-6, Jesus uses an argument afortiori: if the Scripture refers to those who received the word of God as ‘gods’, the one whom God has sanctified cannot blaspheme when he says that he is God’s Son.

One of the most ridiculous arguments from Muslims is the claim that the authors are “unknown”, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are liberals who claim the writers of the Bible are unknown and Muslims and other enemies of the Gospel use this to discredit the Bible.
First let’s prove how silly this argument is, from the Muslim’s perspective their own sources say the Torah and Injil are from Allah. That would make Allah the author of the Torah and Injil which makes up the Bible, of course, we don’t believe Allah sent us the Bible as we don’t believe he exists. But for Muslims, they’re against Allah saying those books have unknown authors. Wouldn’t the author be Allah?
To answer the Abdool we do know who wrote the books of the Bible, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote the Gospels, the text of the Bible attests to this fact. Paul wrote Romans, Ephesians and others. Peter wrote 1st and 2nd Peter, James and Jude. We also have the five books of Moses Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. David wrote the Psalms as well as a few others. We actually have names of authors who wrote these books.
If we ask Muslims who wrote the Qur’an, they say, Allah, so Allah came into his creation and wrote a book called Qur’an? We’re told that Allah cannot enter his creation, therefore, it’s not logical to claim Allah wrote the Qur’an. The question remains who wrote the Qur’an we need names but of course, they cannot provide any.
Another false claim is that Jesus in Mark 7:27 was somehow disrespecting a woman, just as this Abdool stated in his comment. Let’s get him busted to prove Muslims don’t know anything about the Bible, they don’t even know their own book. In the Gospel of Mark Jesus was approached by a woman Syrophenician by nation, she asked Jesus to cast out devils from her daughter.
This Muslim tried to focus on Jesus saying “dog” to this woman in verse 27, let’s bust this Abdool. This is an English translation, in Greek, the word used by Jesus was not one of insult, in reality, it was a word of endearment.
The word used in the text is κυναρίοις and the root word is κυνάριον (kynarion), this is a neuter noun. And the immediate context of the word is generated puppy or little dog. Nowhere in this verse is Jesus Christ insulting this lady as this Abdoool would like for us to believe.
This was an endearing term used by Christ toward the Syrophenician woman. The reason and context of the word used here are to contrast the relationship between the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews were the first to receive the grace and revelation from God, their Messiah was there in their midst and they failed to realise Him.
Then we have a Gentile woman who exercised faith in the Lord Jesus asking Him to heal her daughter from demonic possession. The Gentiles were to receive the message of salvation after the message was relayed to the Jews. This is why the bread and table are mentioned, the dog receives food from the table after those who are at the table eat.
This lines up with what Paul the apostle wrote in the book of Romans, how the Jews were given the message and God then had the message brought to the Gentiles. We can find this in Romans chapter 1 verse 18.
Mark 7:26-30 is a picture of salvation for all who trust in Jesus Christ. But where’s the compassion for women in Islam? Unlike Muhammad who said the majority of women will be in hell fire.
Here we have Muhammad saying the majority of women will be in hell, which means all the Muslima will end up in hell-fire according to their prophet. What’s the point in following Islam if you’ll end up in hell anyway?
To further prove the point that women have no place in Islam we’ll include a quote from Shaykh Assim Al Hakeem who has his show Ask Zad.
“The concept of equality is also something that we have a lot of the women and the men thinking that this is a prime concept in Islam, women and men are equal. This is totally unIslamic, this is totally wrong it’s not even logical how can they be equal? In Islam in the Qur’an Allah says clearly and a male is not similar to a female, they’re different.” — Ask Zad
As you see this is how Muslims who don’t even know their own religion try to twist the scriptures of the Bible when they speak with Christians. All one has to do is know the surrounding context of the verse and get them busted every time. Jesus Christ never insulted the Gentiles but Muhammad indeed said most women will be in hell. I wonder how Muslimas feel about that?
 Jesus’ reply and the woman’s repartee each contain a metaphor. The first is the metaphor of the children and the little dogs. That the girl is likened to a little dog— the similarity in sound between the two words may have led to the comparison— has everything to do with the fact that the episode is about the relation between Jews and Gentiles, and that dogs, particularly stray dogs, are despised and regarded as unclean. 106 Along with the pig, the dog is symbolic of the Gentile, who is often referred to as living like a dog. 107 To call up that image in the presence of a Gentile woman is unfriendly, even crude, but the use of the diminutive relativizes this. These little dogs are not stray or watch dogs but well cared for pets that share the life of the family. The suggested image is that of a well-to-do family, as is confirmed by the circumstance that meals are not served on a floor mat but on a real table, under which the little dogs can find a spot for themselves. 108 The ‘children-little dogs’ relation is a metaphor for the relation between Jews— the children of Israel— and Gentiles. The second metaphor is that of the bread and the crumbs. With this the story remains in the sphere of food and eating that has been so prominent in the two preceding episodes, and also remotely recalls the thematics of the mass meal related in 6.35-44. The metaphor of the bread and the crumbs is an equivalent of the (in comparison with the metaphor, material) loaves and leftovers from that meal. 109 In this sharp verbal exchange Jesus employs this metaphor in an attempt to shrug the woman’s request off with a joke. The Jews come first (πρῶτον). Roman readers who remember what Paul wrote to them will recall Rom. 1.16 in which he says of his ‘gospel’ that it is a power for every one who has faith, ‘to the Jew first and also to the Greek’, words that are repeated twice in the same letter (2.9 and 10). The time of the Gentiles has not yet come. Jesus still has too much to do in Galilee to attend to them. The woman accepts Jesus’ metaphor but adds one of her own, saying that the little dogs are content with the crumbs from the children’s table. What she asks of Jesus— to free her daughter from her demonic obsessions— is so little that the Jews need not miss anything. Jesus recognizes the sharpness and aptness of her retort and gives in.

 “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) went out to the musalla (prayer place) on the day of Eid al-Adha or Eid al-Fitr. He passed by the women and said, ‘O women! Give charity, for I have seen that you form the majority of the people of Hell.’ They asked, ‘Why is that, O Messenger of Allah?’ He replied, ‘You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religious commitment than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.’ The women asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is deficient in our intelligence and religious commitment?’ He said, ‘Is not the testimony of two women equal to the testimony of one man?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Is it not true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her religious commitment.’” Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid (2022, June 10).
