Does The Word Nikah Mean Marriage In Islam?

Followers of Muhammad say Islam is the final revelation from “God” to humanity, that Allah is the same as Yahweh the true God we find in the Bible, but are they the same? If they are the same then God would convey His message the same without contradicting each other if they are indeed the same God. The problem we find is that Allah and Yahweh don’t say the same things.

We come across a Hadith which all Sunni Muslims follow, for the Sunnah are the sayings of Muhammad their prophet. In the following Hadith the topic is on women’s menstruation and what a man’s allowed to do with her during this period.

The above Hadith tells us that it’s Halal (permitted) to engage in certain sexual acts during a woman’s menstruation “the Prophet said: “Do every thing else apart from sexual intercourse (with your wives)””. Muhammad in the Hadith is obviously talking about sex not marriage, therefore why do Muslims take the word Nikah (اَلنِّكَاحَ) and try to pass it off as “marriage”?

وَعَنْ أَنَسٍ ‏- رضى الله عنه ‏- { أَنَّ اَلْيَهُودَ كَانُوا إِذَا حَاضَتْ اَلْمَرْأَةُ لَمْ يُؤَاكِلُوهَا, فَقَالَ اَلنَّبِيُّ ‏- صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏- “اِصْنَعُوا كُلَّ شَيْءٍ إِلَّا اَلنِّكَاحَ” } رَوَاهُ مُسْلِم

If the word Nikah (اَلنِّكَاحَ) meant marriage as Muslims say then the Hadith would read: “Do every thing else apart from marriage(with your wives)” don’t forget this in the context of having sexual relations; which would be promoting fornication.

Muslims have falsely translated this word to mean “marriage” but there’s no such thing as marriage in Islam according to their own Qur’an and Hadith’s. Take a look at the following misleading English translations below.

The actual word for marrige in Arabic is زواج (zawaj), note the difference Nikah: اَلنِّكَاحَ and Zawaj: زواج these are not the same word. The following is a translation from Arberry look how deep the deception goes as they try to pass of the word Nikah as marriage.

When talking about this subject in Islam the Arabic word Nikah is a vulgar word which I will not say here, but if your curious and want to look into the word for yourself and see the true meaning of the word I’ll provide a link here. Just beware it’s a vulgar word which the Qur’an uses, the true God Yahweh would never use such language.

How to say marriage in Arabic

The word Nikah cannot mean both Marriage and Sexual Intercourse, therefore the only way for Muslims to deceive others into thinking the word means Marriage is to falsely translate to Arabic. I’m providing this information so that you can keep yourself from being deceived by the Dawah tactics of Muslims.

Also, for Muslims who are sincere in knowing the truth, I understand that it can be hard to learn these things after being so invested in a belief especially being born and raised in this cult. I do this not because I hate Muslims but because I love them and want them to come to the only One who can save them, that’s the Lord Jesus Christ.

Sacrificial Love

img_3925

I once was given a privilege by the Lord Jesus to witness a man of God acting in pure Christlike sacrificial love. And it changed me. This image will forever be seared in my heart.

I was at a Christian evangelism conference and every morning breakfast was provided by the church. It was pancakes. People were lingering around, concerned about getting their breakfast, getting their fill, their satisfaction, their need met.

The speaker mentioned that whatever was in the serving plate, that’s all we had. Everyone still got their fill, not showing any concern for others getting enough. One man piled up his plate with about 10 pancakes oozing with syrup.

Then, I notice something. A man on the other side of the breakfast table, quietly grabbing his pancakes. Except, he grabbed the burnt one at the bottom, taking the least desired pancake while the rest piled up their plates and had their fill.

My eyes couldn’t believe it. I was watching Christ through this man and it was glorious. It was like watching the pages of scripture unfold before me. It was so pure, so holy, so beautiful, so lovely, sacrificial.

Nobody noticed him, nobody appreciated that they were being thought of by him as more important than himself. And he didn’t care if not a single person noticed, because he was doing it for his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. But I noticed, and it will forever be with me.

God gave me a wonderful gift that day.

This is true Christlike godly Christian love. Sacrifice. Just as Christ sacrificed His life for us, we as His children are to walk in sacrificial love, letting our lives and bodies be a sacrifice unto God. Just as Christ was a servant and washed His disciples feet, are we to be servants and wash each others feet. We are to walk in humility, making others more important than ourselves. That is true godly love.

If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” John‬ ‭13:14-15‬

I am going to marry this man one day. ❤
