Islam’s Connection towards Slavery and Racism

The “religion of peace” is shrouded in slavery and racism, Muslims are unaware that Muhammad shared a common passion along side names such as: David Rice Atchison an owner of many slaves and a plantation. Vasco Núñez de Balboa was a Spanish explorer, governor, and conquistador who always searched for gold and slaves while enlarging his territory. Robert Ruffin Barrow was an American sugar planter and slave owner from Louisiana. He owned a dozen plantations and hundreds of slaves.

Muhammad’s name is among such people, we can look into the Muslim sources to see what’s been documented about ha-Meshuggah (Hebrew: מְשֻׁגָּע‬‎, “the Madman” or “the Possessed”) as the Jews called him.

In the Bible the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob hated slavery, it’s a common theme running through the Bible. One such event comes to mind which is the captivity of the children of Israel in Egypt. The Israelites came into bondage. Israel’s sons sold Joseph into slavery recorded in the book of Genesis.

Genesis 37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty [pieces] of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

Joseph lived in Egypt for 17 years. During that time he gained the favour of Pharaoh and became second ruler only to Pharaoh himself. There was a great famine and Jacob brought his father (Israel) and brothers into Egypt after years of believing Joseph was dead. Information about Joseph is found in Genesis chapters 37-50.

After the death of Jospeh the 2nd Pharaoh at that time didn’t know Joseph (Exodus 1:8) and placed the children of Israel under slavery. They were under hard bondage for 400 years, in which God raised up a deliver in Moses. God used Moses to free the Israelites out of slavery, proving the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob is against slavery.

What about Islam? The best way to view Islam’s position on slavery is to look at Muhammad “the best example to mankind” according to Muslims. I must admit before looking into it my first impression of Muhammad was that he was a dark man.

To my surprise I found out that Muhammad is actually a white man. The Hadith’s give us insight into what he looked like, such words used to describe him are: white thigh, white armpit, white man and rosy color. Let’s first establish this fact of Muhammad’s “whiteness”.

White thigh
Narrated Abdul Aziz Anas said, ‘When Allah’s Apostle invaded Khaibar, we offered the Fajr prayer there (early in the morning) when it was still dark. The Prophet rode and Abu Talha rode too and I was riding behind Abu Talha. The Prophet passed through the lane of Khaibar quickly and my knee was touching the thigh of the Prophet. He uncovered his thigh and I saw the whiteness of the thigh of the Prophet. … — Sahih al-Bukhari 371, Book 8, Hadith 23, Vol. 1, Book 8, Hadith 367

White armpit
The narrator Anas added that the Prophet (ﷺ) raised his hands (during the invocation) to such an extent that the whiteness of his armpits was visible. — Sahih al-Bukhari 1030, Book 15, Hadith 25, Vol. 2, Book 17, Hadith 140

White man
Narrated Anas bin Malik: While we were sitting with the Prophet (ﷺ) in the mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said: “Who amongst you is Muhammad?” At that time the Prophet (ﷺ) was sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm. We replied, “This white man reclining on his arm.” … — Sahih al-Bukhari 63, Book 3, Hadith 5, Vol. 1, Book 3, Hadith 63

Rosy color
Narrated Rabi`a bin Abi `Abdur-Rahman: I heard Anas bin Malik describing the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, “He was of medium height amongst the people, neither tall nor short; he had a rosy color, neither absolutely white nor deep brown; his hair was neither completely curly nor quite lank. …” — Sahih al-Bukhari 3547, Book 61, Hadith 56, Vol. 4, Book 56, Hadith 747

It’s clear Muhammad wanted us to know how white he was, establishing these facts through the Muslim sources we can see how important it was to him. Moving one we’ll see that Muhammad owned black slaves.

Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledg- ed allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man) — Sahih Muslim 1602, Book 22, Hadith 152, Book 10, Hadith 3901

Yahya related to me from Malik from Thawr ibn Zayd ad-Dili from Abu’l-Ghayth Salim, the mawla of ibn Muti that Abu Hurayra said, “We went out with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in the yearof Khaybar. We did not capture any gold or silver except for personal effects, clothes, and baggage. Rifaa ibn Zayd presented a black slave boy to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, whose name was Midam. … — Book 21, Hadith 25, Book 21, Hadith 986

I came and behold, Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) was staying on a Mashroba (attic room) and a black slave of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) was at the top if its stairs. I said to him, “(Tell the Prophet) that here is `Umar bin Al- Khattab (asking for permission to enter).” Then he admitted me. — Sahih al-Bukhari 7263, Book 95, Hadith 17, Vol. 9, Book 91, Hadith 368

Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!” — Sahih al-Bukhari 6161, Book 78, Hadith 187, Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 182

Narrated `Urwa on the authority of `Aisha: On the days of Mina, (11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah) Abu Bakr came to her while two young girls were beating the tambourine and the Prophet (ﷺ) was lying covered with his clothes. Abu Bakr scolded them and the Prophet (ﷺ) uncovered his face and said to Abu Bakr, “Leave them, for these days are the days of `Id and the days of Mina.” `Aisha further said, “Once the Prophet (ﷺ) was screening me and I was watching the display of black slaves in the Mosque and (`Umar) scolded them. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘Leave them. O Bani Arfida! (carry on), you are safe (protected)’.” — Sahih al-Bukhari 987, 988, Book 13, Hadith 36, Vol. 2, Book 15, Hadith 103

Seems Muhammad was fond of owning black slaves, for a religion which claims to be “peaceful” and grant equal rights to people these Hadith’s contradict that narrative. Lastly, what’s Islam’s view on the position of black people? We’re told that satan looks like a black man.

The apostle said, “Whoever wants to see Satan let him take a look at Nabtal b. al-Harith!” He was a sturdy black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks. … (Sura 9:61) (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasulallah, translated as, The Life of Muhammad by A. Guillaume, page 243)

Mohsin Khan: On the Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) when some faces will become white and some faces will become black; as for those whose faces will become black (to them will be said): “Did you reject Faith after accepting it? Then taste the torment (in Hell) for rejecting Faith.” — Surah 3:106

There’s your proof, Islam is rife with racism, Muhammad is reported as saying that whites will go to Jannah (Paradise) while blacks will go to Hell. How can this be a “religion of peace”, Muslims read your own sources. These verses show Islam is false, a man made religion which places you in bondage. Come to Jesus Christ for freedom and salvation.

French teacher beheaded for discussing cartoon of Muhammad

The “religion of peace” strikes again as a french teacher was beheaded for discussing about cartoon caricatures of Islam’s “prophet” Muhammad. How many times have we heard from devout Muslims that Islam is a “religion of peace”?

No don’t get me wrong not every Muslim is looking to behead someone, there are some nice people who happen to be Muslim. Unfortunately, they aren’t truly following the teachings of Islam. Muhammad was known as a war monger, he killed Jews, raped women and owned black slaves.

The tragic event that happened in France is actually the true face of Islam. Even their own Islamic sources tell us how violent true followers of Islam are from the following Hadith.

It has been narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah said:I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer, and pay Zakat and if they do it, their blood and property are guaranteed protection on my behalf except when justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah.

Sahih Muslim 22, Book 1, Hadith 36, Book 1, Hadith 33

Make no mistake the teachings of Muhammad are rife with violent subjugation of non-Muslims. It’s very disheartening to hear of this horrific event. We pray that Muslims will wake up and come out of the darkness of Islam and into the Light of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Majority of Women will be in Hell according to the Quran

Muslims say the religion of Islam benefits women, that Muhammad was a champion for defending women. But how does their “prophet” view women in Islam? No better place to start than with their own Muslim sources.

Woman’s testimony counts as half of a man’s testimony

Pickthall: O ye who believe! When ye contract a debt for a fixed term, record it in writing. Let a scribe record it in writing between you in (terms of) equity. No scribe should refuse to write as Allah hath taught him, so let him write, and let him who incurreth the debt dictate, and let him observe his duty to Allah his Lord, and diminish naught thereof. But if he who oweth the debt is of low understanding, or weak, or unable himself to dictate, then let the guardian of his interests dictate in (terms of) equity. And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not (at hand) then a man and two women, of such as ye approve as witnesses, so that if the one erreth (through forgetfulness) the other will remember. And the witnesses must not refuse when they are summoned. Be not averse to writing down (the contract) whether it be small or great, with (record of) the term thereof. That is more equitable in the sight of Allah and more sure for testimony, and the best way of avoiding doubt between you; save only in the case when it is actual merchandise which ye transfer among yourselves from hand to hand. In that case it is no sin for you if ye write it not. And have witnesses when ye sell one to another, and let no harm be done to scribe or witness. If ye do (harm to them) lo! it is a sin in you. Observe your duty to Allah. Allah is teaching you. And Allah is knower of all things.

Surah 2:282

According to the Quran a woman’s testimony is not equal to a man’s testimony. Islam teaches 2 women’s testimony is equal to 1 man, therefore, in Islam woman aren’t equal to man but lower. The thought here is that having 2 women ensures that if 1 of the women “forgets” the other can remind her. It’s not looking good for Islam.

Hell Dwellers will consist of mostly women?

Let’s back this up with another Muslim source. The following Hadith expounds upon the view of women in Islam. Reading from (12) Chapter: The witness of women

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?” The women said, “Yes.” He said, “This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2658, Book 52, Hadith 22, Vol. 3, Book 48, Hadith 826

We’re beginning to see the low view of women in Islam. According to Islam’s most authentic Hadiths from Sahih al-Bukhari, a woman’s mind is considered deficient.

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful.” It was asked, “Do they disbelieve in Allah?” (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, “They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, ‘I have never received any good from you.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 29, Book 2, Hadith 22, Vol. 1, Book 2, Hadith 29

Things continue to go down hill quickly as the Hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari says the majority of people which will make up hell is women! It must be difficult for Muslim women to accept. Muslims leave Islam there’s no hope for you in a dead religion with no life. But there is life found in Christ, He has life in Himself.

John 5:24-26 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

The Lord Jesus never condemned women to hell, Christ forgave a women who was a prostitute but the Pharisee’s in their heart condemned her saying “This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner” (Luke 7:39), the Lord Jesus Christ replied saying:

Luke 7:40-42 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

Simon the Pharisee responded saying “I suppose that [he], to whom he forgave most.” (Luke 7:43). Christ then tells him “Thou hast rightly judged”, the Lord gets him to see that those who are forgiven for much of their debt that individual will greatly appreciate him which forgave. Now He points to the woman and says:

Luke 7:44-47 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped [them] with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, [the same] loveth little.

Notice the love of Christ, He expounds upon the fact that while this woman was indeed a sinner, she came to Christ and washed His feet with her tears. She greatly loved the One who has forgiven her of her sins, she poured out her soul in complete admiration and gratefulness.

The problem with Islam is Muslims are in bondage to a god which has no love, a god which is not willing to save his own creation. Allah is an unrighteous pagan god who “saves” those who work for his approval. Therefore, the Muslim god allows men who beat their wives into Jannah without being forgiven of their sins.

A false “prophet” Muhammad who commanded Muslim women to breastfeed grown men 10 times, then reduced to 5 times, the same man who married a 6 year old girl (Aisha) and had sexual relations with her at the age of 9 years old.

The Lord Jesus as the sinless Lamb of God would never commit such horrid atrocities. He forgave sinners, never commanded His followers to commit sexual Immorality. Instead the Word of God tells men to love their wives. The only one condemned are those who reject Christ as their Saviour.

Dear Muslim friends your only hope is in coming to the Lord Jesus Christ for everlasting life. These teachings from Islam are ungodly at its core. It’s the sincerest hope of Christians that we would see individuals leaving the cult of Islam, and coming to the One who offers you the living water. The Lord Jesus said:

John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Was Muhammad a Prophet of God?

The entire Islamic religion is contingent upon if Muhammad was a “true prophet” sent by God. Muslims compassionately profess that Muhammad was the last prophet sent by God, but is this true? Can we test this claim?

Each prophet from the beginning spoke about the One who would come. The prophets successively followed after another proclaiming the same message without contradiction from Genesis 1445-1405 BC, until the Messiah came James 44-49 AD till the book of Revelation 94-96 AD.

Muhammad arrives on the scene hundreds of years later being born in 571 AD, and started Islam in 613 AD (7th century). That’s 580 years after Christ, additionally Muhammad was illiterate, therefore, the Quran was written by his companions. Muhammad died in the year 632 AD the companions completed the Quran at least 200 years or more after Muhammad’s death.

The manuscript on which the Qur’an was collected, remained with Abu Bakr till Allah took him unto Him, and then with ‘Umar till Allah took him unto Him, and finally it remained with Hafsa, Umar’s daughter. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 201) 

No text of the Quran was compiled during Muhammad’s time. Further proof from the following traditions.

[Zaid b. Thabit said:] “The Prophet died and the Qur’an had not been assembled into a single place.” (Ahmad b. Ali b. Muhammad al ’Asqalani, ibn Hajar, Fath al Bari [13 vol., Cairo 1939], vol. 9, p. 9)

With that background let’s compare Muhammad to the prophets who came since the time of Moses until Christ and see if Islam’s message lines up with the them.

Muhammad claims to follow the same footsteps of the prophets before him.

Pickthall: Lo! We inspire thee as We inspired Noah and the prophets after him, as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and as We imparted unto David the Psalms; — Surah 4:163

Here, the Quran claims Allah inspired Noah, the prophets after him, Abraham etc. Notice: one of those names doesn’t seem to fit among the rest. The Arabs wanted a prophet so badly that the name of Ishmael is among them. If you’re familiar you’re aware that Ishmael was not a prophet according to the Torah. In fact God told Abraham bring your son your only son Issac.

Genesis 22:2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only [son] Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

The God of the Bible never claims Ishmael to be Abraham’s son even though he was the first born of Abraham biologically. Ishmael was not part of the line in which the Messiah would come. God did tell Hagar He would multiply her seed (Genesis 16:9-12) this is the line in which Arabs came, Muslims claim Muhammad is of the line of Ishmael and try to assert he “prophethood” in this way. But Ishmael was cast out and was never part of God’s plan.

Ishmael lived in Paran and married an Egyptian woman and had twelve sons (Genesis 21:13-21). The scriptures locates Paran near Israel and Egypt, below Judah. If Muhammad is born in Mecca this would place him nowhere near Paran.

Muhammad is told to follow and to confirm his message with the scriptures that proceeded.

Arberry: Therefore call thou, and go straight as thou hast been commanded; do not follow their caprices. And say: ‘I believe in whatever Book God has sent down; I have been commanded to be just between you. God is our Lord and your Lord. We have our deeds, and you have your deeds; there is no argument between us and you; God shall bring us together, and unto Him is the homecoming.’ — Surah 42:15

Therefore, Muhammad’s message must be in agreement with the previous prophets before him right? The problem is Muhammad’s message contradicts the prophets before him. The Bible says Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that all prophets must speak in his name or authority and preach the Gospel.

Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Because Muhammad contradicts the message of Jesus Christ, denying He’s God, therefore, Muhammad cannot be a prophet from the true God. Muhammad in essence is calling God a liar thereby he’s an antichrist.

1 John 2:18, 22 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. … Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Muslims it’s quite obvious that Muhammad contradicts the Lord Jesus Christ. The Quran is a book riddled with plagiarism taking sources from the Jewish Talmud, Targums and Bible. Muhammad gets all the facts wrong further proving he’s not a messenger from God but instead a false prophet.

My Muslim friends Jesus Christ calls you to repentance, to place your faith in the One who has holes in His hands and feet. The only One who came into His own creation to save sinners from hell. The true God of the Bible, come to Him in faith and He will save you from the darkness of Islam. The Lord Jesus says:

John 5:39-40 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

The suicide attempts of Muhammad

Muslims believe that Muhammad was a “prophet of God”, yet Muhammad’s message contradicts every prophet (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel etc.) before his time which came with the consistent message of Jesus Christ. For example in Isaiah we read that the one who would be born through a virgin is called God.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Muhammad and his followers reject that Jesus Christ is God, yet their Quran tells them the Torah, Psalms and Gospel (Injeel) are from Allah (Surah 2:87, 4:163, 3:3, 5:46) and its preserved because the Quran says Allah’s words cannot be changed (Surah 6:34, 6:115, 10:64).

Why Did Muhammad Attempt Suicide?

The point of this article is to prove Muslims follow a man who was demonically influenced to the point that he wanted to commit suicide. Early Muslim sources dictate that Muhammad attempted to commit suicide. Sahih al-Bukhari tells us that Muhammad attempted suicide on more than one occasion. The various accounts agree on how Muhammad tried killing himself (jumping off a cliff), they fail to agree on why. Here are the different narrations.

…But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while and the Prophet (ﷺ) became so sad as we have heard that he intended several times to throw himself from the tops of high mountains and every time he went up the top of a mountain in order to throw himself down, Gabriel would appear before him and say, “O Muhammad! You are indeed Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) in truth” whereupon his heart would become quiet and he would calm down and would return home. And whenever the period of the coming of the inspiration used to become long, he would do as before, but when he used to reach the top of a mountain, Gabriel would appear before him and say to him what he had said before. (Ibn `Abbas said regarding the meaning of: ‘He it is that Cleaves the daybreak (from the darkness)’ (6.96) that Al-Asbah. means the light of the sun during the day and the light of the moon at night). — Sahih al-Bukhari 6982

Sahih al-Bukhari 6982, Book 91, Hadith 1, Vol. 9, Book 87, Hadith 111

Sahih al-Bukhari explains how Muhammad became sad (depressed) and several times tried throwing himself of a mountain. This is obviously not the acts of a sane man.

On the authority of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah (the biographical account of the life of Muhammad), the “prophet” attempted to end his own life because he believed he was possessed by an evil spirit. After a terrible nightmare about a spirit attacking him while forcing him to recite the Quran. Muhammad thought hurling himself off a cliff was the best thing to do.

Ibn Ishaq, p. 106—[Muhammad said,] “So I read it, and he departed from me. And I awoke from my sleep, and it was as though these words were written on my heart. (T. Now none of God’s creatures was more hateful to me than an (ecstatic) poet or a man possessed: I could not even look at them. I thought, Woe is me poet or possessed—Never shall Quraysh say this of me! I will go to the top of the mountain and throw myself down that I may kill myself and gain rest. So I went forth to do so and then) when I was midway on the mountain, I heard a voice from heaven saying, “O Muhammad! thou art the apostle of God and I am Gabriel.”

https://archive.org/stream/IbnIshaqMuhammad/Ibn%20Ishaq%20-%20Muhammad_djvu.txt

Al-Tabari also provides narrations depicting Muhammad’s suicide attempts in Ta’rikh al-Rusul wa’l-Muluk. Apparently Muhammad tries to kill himself before receiving the first Quranic revelation. During Muhammad’s yearly pagan retreat, a spirit came to him and said, “Muhammad, you are the Messenger of God.” Muhammad then fled to his wife Khadijah and begged her to cover him. After this Muhammad considered killing himself.

Al-Tabari, Volume VI, p. 68—He (Muhammad) said: I had been thinking of hurling myself down from a mountain crag, but he appeared to me, as I was thinking about this, and said, “Muhammad, I am Gabriel and you are the Messenger of God.” Then he said, “Recite!” I said, “What shall I recite?” He took me and pressed me three times tightly until I was nearly stifled and was utterly exhausted; then he said: “Recited in the name of your Lord who created,” and I recited it. Then I went to Khadijah and said, “I have been in fear for my life.”

Muhammad was not a stable individual he was depressed and tried killing himself on several occasions. How are followers of Islam comfortable following a suicidal man? None of the prophets found in scripture thought of killing themselves. As we continue to critique the teachings of Islam we will realise more how Muslims are blindly following someone who was demonically possessed.

Our Muslim friends need their eyes open to the reality that Muhammad was nothing but a self proclaimed false prophet. The path of Islam only leads to a lost eternity. There’s only hope in the one who has the nail prints in His hands and His feet, the Lord Jesus Christ who is God and offers all Muslims eternal life.

John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Islam a religion of peace?

The Quran presents Muhammad as the perfect example Muslims are to emulate. We’ve heard from Muslims that Islam is the religion of peace, but is this true? Most non-Muslims don’t understand how Islam works. There are underlying rules as to how Islam goes about in establishing itself.

Islam is a 3 stage approach, to have a deeper understanding a quick history lesson is in order. When Muhammad first received his “revelation” from angel “Jibril” as being “the last of the prophets”, he preached in his own city of Mecca. It was not well received only Muhammad’s closet friends and family followed his new religion.

Muhammad then went to Medina as he intended to bring his new religion to the Jews who lived in Medina which at the time was a Jewish business hub. He thought if he could get the Jews to follow his religion this would give him more authenticity, respect and stature among the Arabians which would make them more willing to accept him.

Muhammad then plagiarised from the Old Testament, this is why you’ll find similar stories in the Quran for instance verse 5:45 in the Quran says:

Pickthall: And We prescribed for them therein: The life for the life, and the eye for the eye, and the nose for the nose, and the ear for the ear, and the tooth for the tooth, and for wounds retaliation. But whoso forgoeth it (in the way of charity) it shall be expiation for him. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are wrong-doers. — Surah 5:45

Does this sound familiar? It should if you’re familiar with your Bible you’ll know that this comes from the Torah, in Exodus we’re given this verse.

Exodus 21:23-25 And if [any] mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

There are verses and stories such as these plagiarised in the Quran as it’s a book which takes from the Bible and Talmud. Muhammad did this in order to make his religion more palatable to the Jews, hence why you’ll find similarities with Judaism and Islam like Yom Kippur and Ramadan, kosher and halal.

Muhammad went to Medina trying to recruit the Jews into his religion but was rejected. This is when Muhammad started to wage war killing Jews and non-Muslims.

Islam’s Model of Dealing with Enemies

Stage 1: Preach tolerance when outnumbered by unbelievers/No retaliation stage. In this stage Muslims will preach “tolerance” quoting “peaceful” verses. These verses are usually referred to as the Mecca verses, this is when Islam was more peaceful as Muhammad didn’t have an army yet. This is why you’ll hear Muslim’s who live in non-Muslim countries saying “there’s no compulsion in religion”, “To you your religion, and to me my religion!”.

Pickthall: There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower. — Surah 2:256

Pickthall: Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion. — Surah 109

Stage 2: Permit Defensive Fighting when there are enough Muslims and weapons to successfully carry it out. Muhammad at this stage bought his time building an army but stood on the defensive. This is what you’re currently seeing in countries such as the United Kingdom or in the United States (Dearborn Michigan)

This is when verses teaching Muslims to fight back is instituted such as Surah 2:190-194 which says:

Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors. And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors. [Fighting in] the sacred month is for [aggression committed in] the sacred month, and for [all] violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you. And fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him. — Surah 2:190-194

Do you see the progression? Islam becomes more violent as the Muslims become more in number in any particular place. This is why we see Sharia zones in the UK.

Stage 3: After amassing a large number of soldiers and resources permission is given to carry out Offensive Warfare in order to kill the pagans and humble the Christians and Jews. This is when the true face of Islam is on display, countries like Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries treat non-Muslims as second class citizens.

[This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists. So travel freely, [O disbelievers], throughout the land [during] four months but know that you cannot cause failure to Allah and that Allah will disgrace the disbelievers. And [it is] an announcement from Allah and His Messenger to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that Allah is disassociated from the disbelievers, and [so is] His Messenger. So if you repent, that is best for you; but if you turn away – then know that you will not cause failure to Allah . And give tidings to those who disbelieve of a painful punishment. Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him]. And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know. — Surah 9:1-6

The message is clear in Islam the call is to overtake anyone who’s not a Muslim, to capture and to kill them; these are the teachings of Islam. Muhammad was not a man of peace but one of war.

Contrasting the Bible and what the Lord Jesus Christ taught from that of the Quran and Muhammad, we are given a completely different message.

Matthew 5:43-48 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Christians are commanded to love our enemies, bless them, do good to them and pray for them. Our LORD shows mercy to our enemies, therefore, we should also. He gives them rain and sunshine. If we only love other Christians then we are likened to a Publican; they only love those who love them.

Christ commands us to love them unconditionally, this is how we become perfect in love.

Luke 6:27-36 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the [one] cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not [to take thy] coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask [them] not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. And if ye lend [to them] of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and [to] the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

Again we are to love our enemies, do good to them and lend wishing for nothing in return; as well as we need to show mercy as our Father in heaven shows them mercy. We also read in the Gospel of Luke about The Good Samaritan.

Luke 10:30-37 And Jesus answering said, A certain [man] went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded [him], and departed, leaving [him] half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked [on him], and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion [on him], And went to [him], and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave [them] to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Notice how this man who was most likely an Israelite was beaten and left for dead. Those who first saw him were prominent “religious” individuals who didn’t show love. They were involved in outward appearances. Then a Samaritan man the least likely person to help being that the Jews and Samaritans had very poor relations. The Samaritans were viewed as a lower class, yet the Samaritan man was willing to help by bounding his wounds and taking him to an inn.

The Bible teaches compassion, love, grace, mercy and truth. The Old Testament does have violent passages we can’t deny that, but it was not because of the God of the Bible. Violence in the Old Testament was on the account of the sin of man. Moving into the New Testament which is where Christians derive all of our foundational teaches like the beatitudes and how we’re to treat others.

The Quran is the opposite, a have a sinful man named Mohammad commanding his followers to rape, murder, lie, marry young girls, idolatry, jihad and polygamy. Muslims are trapped in an ideology which teaches to slay unbelievers everywhere. Muslims leave the darkness of Islam and come into the Light of the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.

Quran Variants (1)

Muslims make a few astounding claims (1) they say that Islam is the only true path. (2) That the Bible has been corrupted with the biggest claim they make is (3) the Quran is perfectly preserved. They say all Qurans in the word are exactly identical, every word, dot, letter and sound.

Let’s answer these claims. If you’re familiar with Islam Muhammad contradicts the Bible in many ways. One that comes to mind is the Quran says Jesus Christ was never crucified. Muslims deny the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.

This verse from the Quran says Christ was never crucified.

Pickthall: And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain. — Surah 4:157

The Lord Jesus clearly said He would be killed (crucified) be buried and raise the 3rd day.

Luke 18:31-33 Then he took [unto him] the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: And they shall scourge [him], and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

This is clearly a contradiction, therefore, who do we believe Jesus Christ or Muhammad? The sinless man (Jesus Christ) or the sinful man (Muhammad)? This was just to demonstrate the Quran contradicts the Bible in many places. Lastly the Quran claims that the word of God is preserved and says the Torah, Psalms and Gospel (Injeel) are God’s words which cannot be changed see (Surah 6:34, 6:115, 10:64) using phrases such as “None can change His words”.

Arabic Quran Variants

Our Muslims friends say all Qurans are the same, every word, dot, letter and sound. Let’s put that claim to the test. To date there have been found over 30 different Arabic Qurans with about 9000 variant readings. Here’s one of these verses from the Quran.

Most Muslims use a Quran called Hafs, it’s the most popular version of the Quran used. There’s another version called Warsh this version is typically used in countries such as Algeria, Morocco, parts of Tunisia, West Africa and Sudan. Below you can clearly see from the 2 highlighted portions the words are not the same, neither the sound one is “aw ain yuzhir” the other being “wa ain yuzhir”.

Chapter (40) sūrat ghāfir (The Forgiver God)

Chapter (40) sūrat ghāfir (The Forgiver God)
Pickthall: The Fire; they are exposed to it morning and evening; and on the day when the Hour upriseth (it is said): Cause Pharaoh’s folk to enter the most awful doom. — Surah 40:26

As you can see the above words in the verse are written differently in the Arabic. This is something Muslims have a hard time grasping because they have been lied to in regards to the Quran being the eternal word from allah and it’s perfectly preserved from any corruption.

The question is why are Muslims making the claim that all Qurans are identical word for word, dot for dot, letter for letter and sound for sound? Here are just a few more variant readings proving there are differences between the Hafs and Warsh Qurans. Reminder this is not including the other 28 or so versions which also have different readings.

The following examples are of the same word(s) in the same verse from these two Qurans. Occasionally the verse number differs because the two Qurans number their verses differently as they don’t equal the same amount of verses.

The call to our Muslim friends still rings out, the gift of salvation which is freely given by God not because of anything you done but because of what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for guilty lost sinners. Islam cannot be the “true path” as the evidence shows. If you’re a Muslim reading this be thankful that you still have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, He’s willing to save you from your sins. Muhammad can’t do anything for you.

The Lord Jesus said:
John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

The Morality of Muhammad

Islam claims that Muhammad is the perfect example of what humanity should be. Muslims even go as far to claim that he was not a sinner pretty much stating he was a sinless man. I have to seriously disagree there’s only One sinless man I know of and that’s the Lord Jesus Christ.

Just to be fair let’s give our Muslims friends the benefit of the doubt and put those claims to the test. Truth is able to withstand scrutiny but false ideas will not, we’re going to take a look at some of the Quran and Hadith which describe Muhammad’s life as Islam’s “prophet”.

It’s well known that Muhammad was fond of little girls, he was especially fond of a 6 year old girl named Aisha, let’s see how he loved her from Islam’s Hadith.

Muhammad’s Wife Aisha

Sahih al-Bukhari 5133: “the Prophet (ﷺ) married her [Aisha] when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old….”

https://sunnah.com/bukhari/67/69

We’re told from al-Bukhari that Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha at the age of nine. This is not a good start for someone who is supposed to be a prophet of God. We’re given more insight of Aisha’s experience by Sahih Muslim.

Sahih Muslim 1422 c: “’A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) married her when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her.”

https://sunnah.com/muslim/16/83

According to Sahih Muslim he confirms that Muhammad married Aisha when she was still a little girl, and was taken to Muhammad’s house at 9 years old along with her dolls. Let’s look at one more.

Sunan Abi Dawud 4931: “I used to play with dolls. Sometimes the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) entered upon me when the girls were with me. When he came in, they went out, and when he went out, they came in.”

https://sunnah.com/abudawud/43/159

Sunan Abi Dawud also agrees with Sahih Muslim and Sahih al-Bukhari that Muhammad had sexual relations with a prepubescent girl. This is Islam’s great prophet who is to be an example to others and how they should live their lives.

Let’s compare this to the Lord Jesus Christ its only fair, because as Christians we have nothing to hide or fear.

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

Christ went through everything we could ever experience in life and while we fail miserably, the Lord Jesus was triumphant in every way because He never sinned.

1 Peter 2:21-22 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

We’re told again from the apostle Peter that Christ never sinned and never lied. Yet He was willing to suffer for us on our behalf, bearing our sins and taking the wrath of God upon Himself.

1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

John the apostle tells us there’s absolutely no sin found in Christ, He’s the spotless Lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world. Contrast this to Islam’s Muhammad who’s morality was that of a sinful man who slept with under age girls.

It’s our hope that our Muslim friends would flee from the twisted religion of Islam and come into the Light of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

The Crucifixion of Christ and how the Quran gets it wrong

Very recently the world of Islam has been shaken to its core, a well renowned Muslim scholar by the name of Dr. Yasir Qadhi was interviewed by a fellow Muslim named Muhammad Hijab. During this interview Hijab was pressing Qadhi on the “perfect preservation” of the Quran. In which Qadhi responded making a shocking statement. Qadhi in regards to the Quran said “the standard narrative has holes in it” (pic above).

Muslims have always said that the Quran has been perfectly preserved, that every Quran in the world is exactly the same word for word, dot for dot, sound by sound, letter by letter. That there are no 2 Qurans which are different in all the world. In later articles we’ll be diving into this claim deeper to see if this is true? But for now let’s talk about the crucifixion of Christ and how the Quran get’s it wrong.

As a Christian if you’ve ever had the chance to speak with a Muslim you may hear “Muslims believe in Jesus as a prophet.” Islam teaches Jesus Christ is only a prophet, He’s not the Son of God and He was not crucified on the cross. In-fact they teach at the last moment before Christ was crucified allah sent angel Jibril (Gabriel in Arabic) to save the Lord Jesus from dying on the cross. The idea comes from the Quran in Surah. 4:157-158:

And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain. — Surah 4:157-158

Here in Surah 4:157-158 it says “they did not kill him (Jesus) nor did they crucify him” the text also says “another was made to resemble him to them” in other words, because allah is the greatest of deceivers he tricked everyone into believing that Jesus Christ was crucified but it was not actually Him. Somehow allah did the switcheroo, instead of Christ on the cross it was someone else who “resembled” Him.

My friends this is the great deception of Islam, this is why many Muslims are in a darkness which is leading them into the pit of hell. When engaging Muslims a good first step is to get them to understand that their own Quran affirms the Bible. Muslims are shocked to hear this because they have been told the “Bible is corrupted.”

In order to prove to them this is not true you can point them to these verses. First the Quran says that allah sent the Torah (5 books of Moses) to Moses, the Psalms to David; and the Gospel (Injeel) to Jesus Christ.

Torah
“We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of messengers,”— Surah 2:87

Psalms
“We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms,”— Surah 4:163

Gospel – “It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong),” — Surah 3:3
Also, “And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah,” — Surah 5:46

Because the Quran contradicts the Bible in many places this poses a huge dilemma for Muslims. If the Quran is correct in saying the Bible is preserved and affirmed then Islam is false. If the Quran is incorrect then Islam is false because the Quran is wrong. Either way Islam crumbles.

There are verses in the Quran which says allah’s words cannot be changed, but Muslims claim the Bible is corrupted. If this is true that means the Quran is wrong because allah’s words have been changed. Christians do not believe in the Quran and allah is definitely not the God we Christians serve. I’m just providing the means how you can shackle a Muslim and cause them to self-destruct with the huge contradictions from the Quran.

If a Muslim denies the Bible they are confirming the Quran is false and Muhammad is a false prophet which is true. If the Quran is true in saying the Bible is not corrupted then Islam crumbles. Here are the verses which says allah’s words cannot be changed or altered.

“Rejected were the messengers before thee: with patience and constancy they bore their rejection and their wrongs, until Our aid did reach them: there is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of Allah. Already hast thou received some account of those messengers,” — Surah 6:34

“The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfillment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all,”— Surah 6:115

“For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme felicity,”— Surah 10:64

With that established we know the Bible is the Word of God and is truth. Muslims ask the question, where in the Bible did Jesus Christ say He would die? In the Bible we find the words of Christ Himself who prophesies His own death.

Matthew 20:17-19 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify [him]: and the third day he shall rise again.

Mark 10:32-34 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him, [Saying], Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Luke 18:31-33 Then he took [unto him] the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: And they shall scourge [him], and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

This is a problem for Muslims because we’ve just learned that the Quran affirms the Bible is preserved, and we just read in the Bible Jesus Christ said He would be put to death and rise again. To our Muslim friends, you must abandon the darkness called Islam, Muhammad didn’t die for you but Jesus Christ did. And through Him (Jesus Christ) you can have eternal life. Islam can never provide the full assurance Christians enjoy knowing we have a home in heaven.

Learn more about how this all got started and shook the Muslim world with “the standard narrative has holes in it” which is forcing many Muslims to leave Islam.
