(formerly named: Muhammad, Terrorist or Prophet?)
(Muhammad, aka: Mohammad, aka Mohammed, aka Mahomet)
“I am the prophet that laughs when killing my enemies.” (Hadith)
Christians & Jewish martyrs say; “I will die for what I believe”.
A Muslim martyr says; “you will die for what I believe”….
We apologize to anyone who may be offended by the history of the founder of Islam (Muhammad) below. And we are aware of the sensitivities involved. However, infinitely more damage has been done to Islam’s “believers” by Islam’s history of withholding the truth about its founder to them — – and the circumstances surrounding its inception — than any “damage” this true history below can cause. BUT, In our opinion – Islam is a satanically inspired religion because (1) Islam rejects the God of the Bible as a Father. (2) Islam rejects Jesus as the divine son of God. (3) Islam rejects the Jewish people as inheritors of God’s promises. (4) Islam rejects ALL the tenets of the Christian faith, especially – Islam LIES that Jesus/Yeshua NEVER died on across outside the gates of Jerusalem. IF that never happened, Satan well knows the that there is absolutely NO path to salvation. YET, the Four (4) Gospel writers (Apostles of Jesus) told us that the sinless Son of God (Jesus/Yeshua) loved us so much that He took our sins upon Himself, so that we who believe He is God’s Son, and sincerely repent of our Sins will be in Heaven one day. Alternatively, Islam’s Muhammad was a militaristic 7th century terrorist who insisted on 20% of all booty for himself – from the Muslim attacks on innocent cities and caravans. Muhammad also had many wives, and he had sex with 9 year old A’isha when he was in his 50’s. That is in her words. If you are a Christian we pray that you will study the history of Islam ‘in depth’, before you make the fatal decision to become a Muslim – and thus rejecting the only path to eternal salvation the real God has laid out (embracing Jesus/Yeshua’s sacrificial death for your sins).
As you will see below, Muhammad posed as an apostle of God. Yet his life is filled with lustfulness (12 marriages and sex with a child, slaves and concubines), rapes, warfare, conquests, and unmerciful butcheries. The infinitely good, just and all holy God simply cannot tolerate anything in the least unjust or sinful. What Muhammad produced in the Qur’an is simply a book of gibberish consisting of later evil verses abrogating (superseding) earlier peaceful verses. These verses in Arabic poetically “tickle” the ears of Arab listeners. Islam is a caustic blend of paganism and twisted Bible stories. Muhammad, its lone “prophet”, who made no prophecies, conceived his religion to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money. He was a terrorist. And if you think these conclusions are shocking, wait until you see the evidence mostly from Islamic historians below. 70% of what is here is from Muslim and ex-Muslim historians – back to the 8th century and the Qur’an itself.
Just a cursory look at Muhammad’s Qur’an (Koran) should be enough to warn you to keep your distance from Islam:
In it you will see “unbridled raw evil”, such as statements like these:
Truly, God loves those who fight
Fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them,
and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for
them in every stratagem.
Chop off their hands and chop off their fingertips
When you meet the unbelievers, chop off their
Fight and slay those who don’t convert wherever
you find them
Believers take neither Jew nor Christians for your
Those who follow Muhammad are ruthless to
Those who reject Islam are “the vilest of creatures”
and thus deserve no mercy
Fight them until Islam reigns supreme (throughout
There are more than 100 verses in the Qur’an (Koran) advocating the use of violence to spread Islam. There are exactly 123 verses in the Qur’an about killing and fighting.
The word “Islam” has been falsely proclaimed by Muslims to mean peace. The word Islam, actually means “submission” to the Muslim god of intolerance and hatred. It comes from the root Arabic word “taslim“. In Arabic, the word for peace is only “solh“.
The Sirat Rasul Allah was written by Ibn Ishaq in 750 A.D. He died in 773 A.D. It was edited and abridged by Abd al-Malik ibn Hisham in 828 A.D. and translated by Alfred Guillaume under the title, The Life of Muhammad in 1955 by Oxford Press. Abd al-Malik ibn Hisham’s “Life of Muhammad” relied on the earlier works. Ulmar al-Waqidi of Medina, who died in 825 A.D. produced a work, which portions of which have survived, called “The Expeditions of Muhammad”. The History of al-Tabari was written by Abu Muhammad bin al-Tabari between 870 and 920 A.D. His monumental work was translated and published in 1987 through 1997 by the State University of New York Press. Make sure you study I, II, VI, VII, VIII, and IX. Al-Bukhari’s Hadith, titled: Sahih Al-Bukhari and The True Traditions which was collected by Imam Bukhari in 850 A.D. Be sure to use the collector’s original nomenclature because the only printed English translation (Publisher-Maktaba Dar-us-Salam, Translator-Muhammad Khan) was abridged and erroneously numbered. Finally, I recommend that you acquire at least three of the following Qur’an translations: Ahmed Ali, Pikthal, Noble by Muhsin Khan, Yusuf Ali, or Shakir. The oldest Qur’an fragments date to around 725 A.D. – a century after they were first recited.
The main intent of this article is to warn Christians who may be “fooled” into Islam, because they did not have all the facts. It is a matter of grave concern. If you reject Jesus and the salvation He made possible — and follow Islam, your entire salvation (where you will spend eternity) is at stake. Islam can deceive you. It can fool the very elect. It rejects the salvation Jesus has made possible. Islam spreads the lie that Jesus never even died on a cross. That alone makes it demonic. This document also exists as a reference document to get out the truth which Muslims are never allowed to see. Of all the holy books in the world, Satan has taken pains to ensure that Muhammad and his Qur’an defiantly stand in diametrical opposition to Jesus, the Son of God, the true Prince of Peace – and his New Testament.
The immortal souls of billions of individuals are involved here. To good Muslims I say; “I have sympathy with your having to grow up in a closed society — where not embracing Islam would have gotten you shunned or even killed”. According to many interpretations of the Qur’an (aka: Koran), conversion to a faith other than Islam is punishable by death. Like Satan’s slavery, Islam maintains a choke hold on its followers. This sorrowful situation most Muslims are born into should arouse compassion and not scorn, from the followers of the Christ.
Jesus never said a true prophet would appear in the last days. Rather, He said false prophets would arise who would deceive, if possible, the very elect.
One Must be a Christian to be Saved! References for this is found in John 14:6; Acts 4:12, and 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16. One cannot be a Christian without verbally confessing the deity of Jesus the Christ. One cannot even pray to God, let alone have sins remitted by Him, without approaching Him through Jesus (John 14:6 and 13, 15:16; 16:23-24; Romans 5:2, and Ephesians 2:18). I know Muslims and Mormons, Christian Scientists and Seventh Day Adventists will not want to hear this, but the Bible declares that Jesus was the FINAL revelation of God to man. There have been no others. (The Quran Unveiled).
You can always know a false god.
False gods always demand the blood of innocents.
Whenever the innocent and just are being slain, there you will find Moloch the god Ba’al; always masquerading.
The god of Muslims is revealed as a tyrant who demands Muslims and all others submit to him. Whereas in the New Testament, Jesus revealed to Christians a God who is a loving Father, who wants us to come to Him via free will. In the Old Testament (Exodus 34:6) the real God revealed Himself as “merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth”. He is the Creator of the Universe, the God of Love, and Lord of Life. The God of Israel is this true God. He insists “Thou shall not kill the innocent and just”.
When a Muslim declares that Islam is a religion of peace, he/she is either ignorant of the Koran (Qur’an), or is deceitfully thinking of this “peace”, as it extends only to those within the Muslim Community. The deceit is that they will not tell you exactly what they mean. According to the Qur’an: “Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to unbelievers” Surah 48:29. “Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush…” Surah 9:5. Also see Surah 9:29: PICKTHAL: “Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture (Christians & Jews) as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.”. Please note that there is not a single verse in the entire Christian Bible that contains this “open-ended”, universal command to kill/or be ruthless to unbelievers.
Surah 47:4 says:
Fa’idh? Laq?tumu Al-Ladh?na Kafar? Fa?arba Ar-Riq?bi ?attaá ‘Idh? ‘Athkhantum?hum Fashudd? Al-Wath?qa Fa’imm? Mann?an Ba`du Wa ‘Imm? Fid?’an ?attaá Ta?a`a Al-?arbu ‘Awz?rah? Dh?lika Wa Law Yash?’u All?hu L?nta?ara Minhum Wa Lakin Liyabluwa Ba`?akum Biba`?in Wa Al-Ladh?na Qutil? F? Sab?li All?hi Falan Yu?illa ‘A`m?lahum
Therefore, WHEN YOU MEET THE UNBELIEVERS, SMITE AT THEIR NECKS; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.
Many Quran translators have tried to soften the meaning in their translation by adding the words “in war” in brackets after the word “Unbelievers” but they are NOT there in the original Arabic text.
Allah – the Pagan god:
Islam, teaches that Jews and Christians both have earned the wrath of Allah by failing to follow Islam, and that they have also lost the way by following the teachings of the Torah for the Jews, or the Bible for Christians. Additionally, This god Allah (with a little g) lies about Jesus. Islam says that Jesus not only is not the Son of God, but that He did not even die on a cross in Jerusalem… Allah is therefore proven to be a false pagan god… Jews also do not believe this about Jesus (Yeshua). Who will believe it? The greatest of kings. Born in the humblest of places…. God, born in the flesh! The Apostle Paul tells us that Jews have been supernaturally blinded to this by God. Yet Christians and Jews worship the same God (Yahweh) and share the same Bible. Learn more. See movies “The Nativity Story” and “Jesus”, here.
About 578 years before Islam came along, Christians were warned against Islam by both Jesus and the Apostle Paul. Jesus warned us about the many false prophets who would follow Him (Matthew 16:11-12) . Paul warned us when he wrote:
“But even if we (or an angel from heaven) should preach a Gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be condemned to hell!” (Galatians 1:8).
Since Islam’s message differs fundamentally from the Gospel, it is clear what Paul taught regarding the fate of Muhammad and those who propagate Islam. Islam bypasses the sacrificial mediating work Jesus did for believers on the cross, thus negating the forgiveness of sins. This condemns non-believers to die in their sins. Jesus said; “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” John 8:24
Jesus also predicted the current dilemma of Muslim intolerance and fanaticism. He warned that the day was likewise coming when religious zealots will kill Christians and think they are offering a service to God (John 16:2-4).
Dear Christians and Muslims. Jesus is committed to winning the spiritual Holy War. He wants nobody to suffer an eternity without God, confined to a godless place. Know this, that God Himself is calling out those Muslims with good hearts! Jesus (Isa) Himself is appearing to many. A few years ago, Al-Jazeera reported that roughly six million Muslims are leaving Islam and becoming followers of Jesus every year in Africa. In 2005, roughly 250,000 Muslims converted to Christianity in Iran. Between 2003-2005, roughly 1 million Muslims converted to Christianity in Arab countries. Muslims are coming to Christ in North America, too, although not to the same extent as in Muslim countries. Tens of millions are embracing Jesus every few years in India and in China. Chinese missionaries are now gearing up to bring the Gospel of Jesus to dark Muslim places.
The Muslim Qur’an (Koran) and Muslim Hadith are unique among all the sacred writings in the entire world — because they alone counsel its followers to make war on unbelievers. Any thoughtful reader will be forced to admit that evil literally “drips” from their pages. One in every 55 verses in the Muslim Qur’an consists of this fake god Allah insisting that Muslims make war on unbelievers.
As you will see below, the Qur’an is a made up book of gibberish, of evil verses abrogating (superseding) peaceful verses.
The Qur’an cannot be trusted because it contains numerous “divinely inspired” contradictions. If God has a history of abrogating (changing) his own revelations as is done in the Qur’an, then how can we be certain he will not abrogate it again in the future? If Allah can abrogate his eternal speech, how can you trust him with your eternal soul?
Comparing the Bible with the Qur’an “has likewise brought the firm realization that the contrast is stark and astounding. The superiority of the Bible is so transparently evident that one is flabbergasted and dumbfounded that so many human beings have embraced Islam in the last 1,400 years”. .. “The Quran lacks this heavenly manifestation of inspiration”. The Quran Unveiled, page 254
To the Muslim, Jesus Christ is merely one of the many prophets of Allah (Sura: 4:171; 5:74). According to Islam, the prophet Muhammad supersedes Jesus Christ. Islam says Jesus Christ is not the Son of God or part of any Trinity (Surah 5:17; 5:116; 19:35). We are told by Islam that Jesus was the Messiah (Surah 3:45; 4:157; 171), but nothing but a slave on whom God showed favor (Surah 43:59); yet elsewhere in the Qur’an we are told the Messiah is not a slave (Surah 4:172). The Qur’an tells us that Jesus Christ did not atone for anyone’s sins, although he was himself sinless (Surah 3:46) and is one of those who are near to God (Surah 3:45). Positively, the Qur’an says that Jesus Christ performed miracles (Surah 3:49; 5:110) and was the Messiah. The Qur’an says Jesus did not die on a cross. Various Muslim traditions say that Jesus either miraculously substituted Judas Iscariot for himself on the cross, or that God miraculously delivered Him from the hands of the Romans and Jews before He could be crucified. Most Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was taken bodily into heaven without having died (Surah 4:157). However, Surah 19:33 says Jesus died and would be resurrected. Muhammad on the other hand died in his wife Aisha’s home, not long after he was poisoned by a slave girl. Muhammad’s body was lowered into a hole in Medina, and his dead body was covered by dirt and brickwork.
It is interesting to compare Jesus and Muhammad according to the Qur’an. Jesus did miracles (Surah 3:49; 5:110), but Muhammad did not (Surah 13:8: “thou art a warner [of coming divine judgment] only”; also 6:37; 6:109; 17:59 and 17:90-93).
Jesus was sinless (Surah 3:46), but Muhammad sinned and needed forgiveness (Surah 40:55: “Ask forgiveness of thy sin”; 42:5: “Ask forgiveness for those on the Earth”; 47:19: “Ask forgiveness for thy sin” ; 48:2: “that Allah may forgive thee of thy sin”).
Jesus was called “the Messiah” by Allah in the Qur’an. And Jesus was even born of a virgin (Surah 3:45-57)! Yet Muhammad who had 12 wives, 2 concubines, and participated in many attacks on innocent caravans and villages, and insisted on 20% of all the booty from these raids — is supposed to be the greatest of the prophets.
Both Muslim holy books (Qur’an/Koran and Hadith) contain commands for Muslims to subjugate the world, militarily. Muhammad commanded Muslims to spread Islam through Offensive Jihad; or conquest of non-Muslim lands. Muslims are also commanded to take back any land that was formerly Muslim, such as Israel.
Radical Muslims believe that they are Mujahideen, or “holy warriors of Allah”. Their goal, like Islam’s goal is to establish the entire world as a pure Islamic state (a Khalifah), which conforms to Islamic laws.
An example of what Muslim children are taught in Muslim schools is this statement, found in a Jordanian/Palestinian school book in 1998:
“This religion (Islam) will destroy all other religions through the Islamic Jihad fighters”

The Qur’an itself calls the Gospel of Jesus “Guidance and Light“
The biggest threat to Islam is without a doubt the teachings of the true “Prophet of Peace” Jesus Christ. Islamic leaders go to extraordinary means to hide the Gospel of Jesus from Muslims.
The fact that Muslims do not read and study the New Testament / the Gospel of Jesus is yet another contradiction in Islam. Question the “dark side” – the Islamic Fear of Christianity. Just as Satan wails at a crucifix at an exorcism – the Islamic cult member normally wails at the sight of the Christian Bible. A false prophet can always be recognized, because he attacks the true prophet. A false Bible can be recognized, because it contradicts the true Bible.
Islam goes one step further. First Islam tries to gain acceptance by attesting to the truth and validity of both the Christian and Jewish holy books. But, it then clearly steps out of the light, exposing itself to its diabolical agenda, by contradicting and falsifying the facts and teachings in both these books. Also, question the “dark side” of a Religion such as Islam that requires you to only recite salah and prayers like the Namaz, in a language (Arabic) you do not understand. All Muslims, Arab and non-Arab alike, are obliged to pray in Arabic. Even if you do not understand a single word. Muslims are also required to read the Qur’an in Arabic, in order to attain any graces at all from Allah. It is not necessary that the person can understand even a word of what he is reading. This is what the warning means that Jesus left us with, when he said; “insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Most Muslims do repetitive prayers in a language (Arabic) which they do not understand. The mandatory recital – The Shahadah: Ash hadu ala ilah ha ilahlah wa ash hadu anna Muhammadah Rasullulah. Translated, it says; “I testify that there is no god but allah and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
You cannot recite only “ I testify that there is no god but Allah “ and not include “Muhammad is the prophet of Allah “ . That is forbidden or ‘haram’. You must recite “ Muhammad is the prophet of Allah “.
Ibn Tymiyyah a very well respected ancient Islamic thinker says; “The Arabic language itself is part of Islam, and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty.
See a graphic example of the Christian idea of Jesus as our mediator and one with the Father (same light and substance) in this true Near Death Experience here
Islam claims that Allah is the same God who was revealed in the Bible. . . . then if the Bible and the Qur’an have differing views of God, then Islam’s claim is false. Don’t forget that Muhammad claimed in Suras 2:87, 29:46, 32:23, 5:44, 6:154, 6:155 that Allah confirmed the Torah (Taurat) and Christian Gospel (Injeel) (Surah 2:87, 5:46, 5:68, 29:46 and 43:63). So, if the Torah and Gospel are correct, all the errors in the Qur’an shown below make the Qur’an false.
Islam and Christianity are forever diametrically opposed:
A tenet of Islam is that both Mohammed and Jesus of Nazareth were both Muslims. Islam says both were prophets sent by Allah. If this were true, then it is mandatory that these two great prophets must coincide exactly in all points and never contradict each other. Did not the same Allah send both of them? Then, aren’t even the smallest of contradictions between the two, very big red flags? And there are a great many, which you will see below. Christianity and Islam are necessarily forever diametrically opposed to one another, just as evil and good are. Oral confession of the deity of Jesus Christ is prerequisite to becoming a Christian (Romans 10:9-10). To a Muslim, this is blasphemy. To a Christian it is blasphemy to not attribute divinity to Jesus the Christ. The New Testament could not be clearer on this subject. The heart, core and soul of Christianity is allegiance to Jesus Christ as God, Lord, and Savior! Were Jesus Christ who the Muslim Qur’an who it makes him out to be, then Christianity would be blasphemous and baseless.
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. (Romans 10:9-10)
Surah 5:68 – Say: “O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law (Torah), the Gospel (Injeel), and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.”
Surah 29:46 Muslims are told by Allah, not to question the authority of the scriptures of the Christians, saying, “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say, “We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;
Islam says that Jesus did not die. So, again –Islam has proven to be false; because Muhammad claimed the Gospel is true, and all 4 Gospels (Injil) testify that Jesus died and rose from the dead. God does have a begotten Son (not made, but one with the Father), which Islam denies. The Jewish Torah / Taurat (Tawrat) clearly indicated this over 1000 years before Muhammad and Islam. In addition their are collateral 1st century sources that testify that Jesus was put to death. In the “Annals” written by Roman historian Tacitus, in Book XV, Chapter 44 we read “Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius.” Roman historian Josephus also wrote about the death and Resurrection of Jesus. Even Satan says that Jesus died on the cross. Also, the Roman Historian Seutonius wrote in his work “Life of the Emperor Claudius” the following about Christians: “and deny the gods of Greece, and worship the crucified sage, and live after his laws.” The Roman historian Pliny wrote about Jesus’ death in Book X of his Epistles. Julius Africanus, quoting Thallus another Roman historian, who wrote in about 52 A.D. about the miraculas happenings the day the Son of God was killed. He wrote: “On the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness; and the rocks were rent by an earthquake, and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down”. Like Muhammad, Satan also cringes in fear at the sight of the cross. Read this true Exorcism here
Proverbs 30:4 (700 B.C.): “Who hath ascended up into heaven or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the Earth? What is His name, and what is His son’s name, if thou canst tell?”
(Psalm 2:11-12) Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Even after Allah confirmed the Torah and Gospel, Islamic Mullahs and Imams have tried to sell the lie that the Christian Gospels and Jewish Torah have been corrupted.
This a complete lie! This lie is perpetuated by Islam, because of all the historic, scientific, and simple mathematical errors in the Koran/Qur’an – as you’ll see below… The Qur’an just doesn’t add up.
“They” could not have changed the Christian Gospels after Muhammad, since there are 5,735 (Welte, 2003) manuscripts of the whole or part of the Greek text of the New Testament (Injil) pre-dating Muhammad still in existence. Worldwide, there are 24,800 copies of these original manuscripts. These include the Codex Vaticanus (325-350 AD) located in the Vatican library and the Codex Siniaticus (350 AD) located in the British Museum. There are also 80,000 quotations in the works of early Christian writers which are so extensive that the New Testament could virtually be reconstructed from them without the actual New Testament documents. Then there is the obvious fact that the Christian Gospels were so widely distributed both before and after Muhammad, that any attempt to change (add/subtract) something in the Christian Gospels would have resulted in immediate discovery and condemnation. Additionally, the New Testament was handed down from apostolic times and its genuineness was guarded by Christian churches, and it was zealously watched by enemies of Christianity. A very wide protest would have resulted from both sides were it tampered with. Likewise, the Septuagint edition of the Old Testament was always in the hands of both Christians and Jews, both rivals in religion. Any attempts to change this by either side would have been vigorously attacked.
There are four more “safeguards” for the integrity of the Bible. (1) Jesus Himself read from Isaiah scroll in a Synagogue in Nazareth and declared it as Scripture (inspired from God), Luke 4:16-21; (2) The Dead Sea scrolls, found in 1947, verified the Jewish Torah back to 100 AD to 200 BC, when they were copied. Prior to this discovery, the oldest Torah dated to the 9th century AD. The Dead Sea scroll of Isaiah verified almost exactly the Isaiah scroll copied in the 9th century; (3) Early Church Fathers like Ignatius, Clement of Rome, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Irenaeus, who wrote from between 90-160 AD all cited in their writings Christian Gospel accounts (Guthrie, 1990, page 24); (4) We know that the writings of Moses were preserved as far back as 621 BC. 2 Kings 22 speaks of this at the time of the Israeli King Josiah. Ezra 7:14, Nehemiah 8:1-18, and Jeremiah 36 also speaks of the Jews maintaining Scripture.
Some versions of the Bible from 1881 differ in a few words here and there. However, the essential theological points remain the same and are complete. Bibles we recommend, that have not changed are:
Protestants original Authorized King James (1611)
Catholics Catholic Douay Reims – older versions
The Christian Bible predates Muhammad and Islam by more than 575 years. The Jewish Torah predates Muhammad and Islam by 1,000 – 3,000 years. Muhammad said for Muslims to read the Bible for “Guidance and Light.” For Islam to say they are corrupted, then is to call Muhammad a liar for recommending it.
The same Bible Muhammad would have seen (if he ever did) is in both (1) The Vatican (Codex Vaticanus) and (2) British Museum (Codex Sinaticus). It is all there, including Jesus dying on the cross as atonement for our sins. And, His resurrection, and ascension into heaven – in front of many witnesses. The New Testament is preserved in almost perfect condition in these two Greek texts which both predate Muhammad and Islam by over 200 years.
Everything in the Christian/Jewish Bible is being authenticated by archeology. Consider the Babylonian cylinder inscription of Nabonidus (thought to be the last king of Babylon) which commemorates the reconstruction of a ziggurat at Ur by Nabonidus and records a prayer to Belshazzar (Daniel 5) his son ‘the firstborn son, the offspring of my heart’. Not only does this prove that Belshazzar was indeed a member of the Babylonian royal family, which had long been disputed, but it also explains why Daniel is told he could be the third ruler (with Nabonidus and Belshazzar more or less acting as co-regents). Also, consider the ‘chariot wheels’ divers found in the Red Sea, proving the Hebrew Exodus from Egypy was real; and that the Egyptian army chasing the Jews was drowned by God (Yahweh), just as was recorded in the Jewish Bible.
Chariot wheels found in the Red Sea (Gulf of Aqaba)
Muslims should note that nowhere in the Qur’an there is even a suggestion that the Christian Biblical text has been altered or corrupted. The word “tahrif” is never used with reference to the Christian Gospels (Injil). The Qur’an occasionally accuses the Jews of altering their Scripture (like in Surah 5:13); but it never levels this accusation at Christians. It in no way implies that the text of the Gospel of Jesus (Injil) has been corrupted. In fact, the Qur’an attests to the validity of the Christian Gospels, Zabur (Psalms) and the Torah.
The uninspired Qur’an
The Jewish and Christian Bibles were written by “inspired men of God” who immediately committed God’s Word to writing. Islam doesn’t even have either an original or inspired Qur’an. The Muslim Qur’an was made up supposedly from “memory” from those who supposedly committed the words of Muhammad to memory, and from a few scraps found under a bed. This was originally begun about 15-20 years after Muhammad died at his wife Ayish’s home in Medina, and he was lowered into a hole in the ground, where he remains. The compilation was not finished until at least 150 years after Muhammad’s death. This “hearsay” argument seriously brings the credibility of the Qur’an into question. But, that’s only the beginning. All the errors, including simple mathematical and historical errors you will see in the Qur’an below renders it impossible to be a divine revelation.
Al Bukhari, a Muslim scholar of the 9th-10th century, and the most authoritative of the Muslim tradition compilers, writes that whenever Muhammad fell into one of his unpredictable trances his revelations were written on whatever was handy at the time. The leg or thigh bones of dead animals were used, as well as palm leaves, parchments, papers, skins, mats, stones, and bark. And when there was nothing at hand the attempt was made by his disciples to memorize it as closely as possible.
Zaid b. Thabit said: “The Prophet died and the Qur’an had not been assembled into a single place.” (p. 118, Ahmad b. `Ali b. Muhammad al `Asqalani, ibn Hajar, “Fath al Bari”, 13 vols, Cairo, 1939/1348, volume 9, page 9)
Zuhri reports, ‘We have heard that many Qur’an passages were revealed but that those who had memorized them fell in the Yemama fighting. Those passages had not been written down, and following the deaths of those who knew them, were no longer known; nor had Abu Bakr, nor `Umar nor `Uthman as yet collected the texts of the Qur’an.
“During the battle of Yamama, 450 reciters of the Quran were killed.” (The True Guidance, An Introduction To Quranic Studies, part 4 [Light of Life – P.O. BOX 13, A-9503 Villach, Austria], p. 47- citing Ibn Kathir’s Al-Bidaya wa al-Nibaya, chapter on Battle of Yamama).
Muhammad’s child wife said this after Muhammad died:
“The verse of the stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my bed. When the messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.”

As to the Taurat (Torah), Jewish scribes painstakingly copied it via a system of checking, double checking and adding each letter on each line. Any attempt to change something in the Torah would have resulted in immediate discovery and condemnation. And copies of the Torah from around the world agree exactly. Thousands of the Hebrew Old Testament manuscript copies are still available for textual criticism, ranging in age from the second century B.C. (Before Christ) to the eleventh century A.D. (After Christ).
The Qur’an is not an authentic book or revelation.
There are no Arabic chronicles of Islam from the first century of Islam. Many of the earliest documents known about Islam refer to the followers of Muhammad as “hagarenes,” and the “tribe of Ishmael,” in other words as descendants of Hagar, the servant girl that the Jewish patriarch Abraham used to father his son Ishmael.
This same quality of transmission we find regarding the Jewish and Christian bible cannot be said of the Islamic Qur’an. The Islamic Qur’an was mostly written down from 3rd and 4th hand accounts; and from a few thoughts written on scrap papers, palm leaves and stones –and compiled over 150 years after Muhammad died in 632 A.D. In the Mishtatu ‘lMasabih, chapter 3, we are informed that by the command of the first Caliph, Abu Bakr, the text of the Qur’an was “collected” by Zaid ibn Thabit “from palm leaves and stones and from the breasts of those who had learned by heart” the various revelations.” Abu Bakr’s copy came into the possession of Hafsah, one of Muhammad’s widows. Qustalani states that after Hafsah’s death her copy was torn to pieces by Mirwan, who was governor of Medina.
The oldest Qur’an dates from around 790 A.D. (after Jesus), and it is in the British Library. That’s 158 years after Muhammad’s death. See corrupted Qur’an here.
Muslims often claim that the manuscript of the Qur’an housed in the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, Turkey is one of the oldest sources. Muslims say it dates from around 650 A.D. There is an insurmountable problem with this. This document is written in Kufic (also known as al-Khatt al-Kufi) script. Coins in the British Museum show that the first coins using the Kufic script date from the mid to end of the 8th century (750-800 A.D.). The only script used during and after Muhammad’s days was the Jazm script. These earliest copies of the Qur’an are written without vowels and diacritical dots that modern Arabic uses to make it clear what letter is intended. In the eighth and ninth centuries, more than a century after the death of Muhammad, Islamic commentators added diacritical marks to clear up the ambiguities of the text.
Sorry suicide bombers. There will be no sexual favors (virgins) for you –where you are going
For example, the famous passage about the virgins is based on the word hur, which is an adjective in the feminine plural meaning simply “white.” Islamic tradition insists the term hur stands for “houri,” which means virgin, but Mr. Luxenberg who teaches at the Saarland University in Germany insists that this is a forced misreading of the text. In both ancient Aramaic and in at least one respected dictionary of early Arabic, hur means “white raisin.”
Reward the Qur’an promises
The Qur’an is not an authentic book or revelation. Much of the Qur’an was copied from early Christian texts. Mr. Luxenberg has traced the passages in the Qur’an dealing with “paradise” to a Christian text called Hymns of Paradise by a fourth-century author. Mr. Luxenberg said the word paradise was derived from the Aramaic word for garden and all the descriptions of paradise described it as a garden of flowing waters, abundant fruits and white raisins, a prized delicacy in the ancient Near East. In this context, white raisins, mentioned often as hur, Mr. Luxenberg said, makes more sense than a reward of sexual favors.
“I think the broader implications of some of the revisionist scholarship is to say that the Koran is not an authentic book, that it was fabricated 150 years later,” says Ebrahim Moosa, a professor of religious studies at Duke University, as well as a Muslim cleric whose liberal theological leanings earned him the animosity of fundamentalists in South Africa, which he left after his house was firebombed.
The Samarkand (aka: Othman Koran) manuscript in the Soviet Library in Tashkent, Uzbekistan also uses the Kufic script, indicating late 8th century. Many believe it is the oldest in existence. Only About one-third of the original survives.
The library where the Koran is kept is in an area of old Tashkent known as Hast-Imam, well off the beaten track for most visitors to this city. It lies down a series of dusty lanes, near the grave of a 10th century scholar, Kaffel-Shashi.
This Samarkand codice manuscript is considerably incomplete. It only begins in the middle of verse 7 of Suratul-Baqarah (the second Surah) and from there on numerous pages are missing. The next oldest Muslim manuscripts are also from the 8th-century. One is written in al-ma’il script and the other in Kufic. Neither of these correspond precisely to today’s Qur’an. Also, in 1972, construction workers who were restoring the Great Mosque of Sana’a in Yemen found a cache of manuscripts scraps that differ and contradict today’s Qur’an so badly, that Muslims try to hide this. These Yemeni Qur’an manuscripts date back to the 7th and 8th centures, and are actually the oldest found, and they are in Hijazi. Hijazi (Makkan or Madinan) script, is the script in which the earliest masahif of the Qur’an were written. These manuscripts calls to question whether the present Qur’an was delivered to Muslims in pristine form. Your guess is as good as mine as to who in addition to Muhammad made up the Qur’an.
Other than a few incorrect references to the patriarchs and Moses, the Qur’an is primarily centered on the period of time Muhammad himself lived in, including Muhammad’s many military attacks on innocent caravans and Arabian villages. This seems to be hardly compatible with a holy revelation of God. Considering the complete absence of external and internal evidence that should effectively verify the revelatory character of the Qur’an, we find it very hard, if not impossible, to accept the Qur’an as a Message sent by God. This is particularly so, because the Qur’an contradicts earlier revelation, the evidence for the origin of which is given in Qur’an/Koran Suras below.
Ask a Muslim, by whom, and when were the Christian and Jewish Scriptures corrupted? You will get a blank stare. Muslims only know is that this lie has been “drilled” into them since childhood.
Even though their own prophet completely attested to the genuineness and authenticity of the Old and New Testaments, Islam makes the claim that they have been corrupted. Why? Because the Qur’an erroneously contradicts them both. And Islamic clerics know it. In Muslim cleric minds this also relieves them of Muhammad’s statements such like:
Muslims who have received the Qur’an have no solid grounds of faith, and that the foundation of the Muslim faith is insecure and insufficient and the Muslim religion is futile, unless they observe and follow the Taurat (Torah) and the Gospel (Injil).
Many Muslims Imams and Mullahs falsely point to Surah 2:140 to try and prove that Jews and Christians had corrupted their Scriptures. Referring to the Jews, this Surah says; “…who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah?…?” Yet, nowhere does this Surah state that the Jews and Christians corrupted their scriptures. Muslim clerics need to point to something because they know that the Jewish Torah and Christian Gospels badly contradict the Islamic Qur’an. The fact that Muhammad and Allah told Muslims to believe in the Torah and Christian Gospels is a very bad dilemma for these professionals who wish to continue making a good living in Islam.
Suras 6:34, 6:115, 10:64 and 50:28,29 clearly says to Muslims, “No change can there be in the words of Allah” and that Allah cannot alter (or abrogate) his words.” So the Torah and Christian Gospels are correct, because Allah did verify this fact — this clearly makes the Muslim Qur’an false; because it contradicts Allah.
As you can see from these verses below in the Qur’an (Koran), the Gospel of Jesus and the Jewish Torah are the divine Word of Allah, and Muhammad commanded the reading of the Holy Injil (Gospel of Jesus) and the Torah (Taurat) as part of Islam.
As a Good Muslim – Have you read the Gospel of Jesus?
The Gospel of Jesus and Old Testament (Torah): “Guidance and Light”
– Surah 2:87 – And most certainly We gave Musa the Book and We sent apostles after him one after another; and We gave Isa, the son of Marium, clear arguments and strengthened him with the holy spirit,
– Surah 3:48 – And He (Isa/Jesus) will teach him the Book and the wisdom and the Tavrat (Torah) and the Injeel (Christian Gospel).
– Surah 3:50 – And a verifier of that which is before me of the Taurat (Torah) and that I may allow you part of that which has been forbidden t you, and I have come to you with a sign from your Lord therefore be careful of (your duty to) Allah and obey me.
– Surah 5:44 – “Surely We revealed the Taurat (Torah/Bible Old Testament) in which was guidance and light”, with it the prophets who submitted themselves….
– Surah 5:46 – And We sent after them in their footsteps Isa, son of Marium, verifying what was before him of the Taurat (Jewish Torah) and We gave him the Injeel (Christian Gospels) in which was guidance and light, and verifying what was before it of Taurat and a guidance and an admonition for those who guard (against evil).
– Surah 5.68 – Say: O followers of the Book! you follow no good till you keep up the Taurat and the Injeel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord;
– Surah 6.154: Again, We gave the Book (Torah) to Musa to complete (Our blessings) on him who would do good (to others), and making plain all things and a guidance and a mercy, so that they should believe in the meeting of their Lord.
– Surah 6.155: And this (Torah) is a Book We have revealed, blessed; therefore follow it and guard (against evil) that mercy may be shown to you.
– Surah 29:46 “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say, “We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;
– Surah 32:23 – And certainly We gave the Book to Musa, so be not in doubt concerning the receiving of it, and We made it a guide for the children of Israel.
– Surah 43:63 – When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said: “Now have I come to you with Wisdom, and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) on which ye dispute: therefore fear Allah and obey me.
– Surah 46:12 we are told…. “And before it the Book of Musa (Moses) (Torah) was a guide and a mercy: and this is a Book verifying (it) in the Arabic language that it may warn those who are unjust and as good news for the doers of good……”
The Great Muslim dilemma
The Christian Bible Says Jesus is God, and one with the Father
Muslims have no choice but to believe in the Christian Bible and the Apostles who wrote it. The Qur’an forbids anyone, on pain of shameful punishment, from making distinctions between the authority of the apostles and prophets of God, or from choosing between God’s words. No one is permitted to believe in part and reject a part. Those who presume to do so, it says, are infidels in reality (Suras 4:150-152; 2:89; 42:13-15; 29:46-47). See Christian Bible references to who Jesus really is: here
Who is he talking about?
This Surah below shows how Muhammad had a complete misunderstanding of the Christian Gospel, and what the Trinity is. Apparently, Muhammad is referring to Christians. But his error here is that both Christians and Jews believe there is only One God. Muhammad also mistakenly thought the Trinity was the Father, Son and Mother (Mary).
– Surah 5:73-75, “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three…”
Again, below Muhammad attests to the Torah’s (Taurat) authority.
So, for Muslims to claim the Bible was corrupted is an argument already lost….
– In Surah 5:48 we are told that Muhammad is given the Qur’an as a confirmation of the bible; that is – it is meant to prove the bible’s authenticity…. “And We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, verifying what is before it of the Book and a guardian over it,”
– In Surah 46:12 we are told…. “Yet before it there was the Book of Moses (Torah/Old Testement) which was an authority, and a mercy. This (the Qur’an) is the Book confirming it in the Arabic tongue…..”
Muhammad deferred to the Torah for Guidance Himself
Asked to produce the Torah and read from it, Âl ‘Imran 3:93.
A group of Jews went to Muhammad and ask him to pronounce judgment on an adulterous couple. Muhammad asked for the Torah to be brought before him, and the couple was subsequently stoned, in accordance with the penalty laid down in the Torah. (see Sahih Bukhari Book 38, no. 4434)
This incident indicates that Muhammad deferred to the Torah for judgment. In the whole incident, there is no indication whatsoever that the Torah is not trustworthy, Also see: fate of those who do not live by Torah, al-Jum`ah 62:5 ; referred to settle dispute on food, Âl ‘Imran 3:93-94 ; retribution in, al-Ma’idah 5:45
Torah/Taurat: This word occurs 18 times in the Qur’an. It refers to the 39 books that make up the Jewish & Christian Old Testament. Jesus Himself said “every iota” (or every bit) of this Torah/Taurat is true.

Today may be the time to free yourself from that tyrannical yoke of living in a false religion which came about to glue together a group of robbers, murderers and opportunists.
Your first step towards eternal salvation is no harder than to invite the only begotten Son of God into your heart as your Lord, Savior, and the one who has already paid for your sins Himself.
ON THE LORDSHIP / SONSHIP OF JESUS
Is it possible that the Muslim Qur’an is nothing more than an entire book of Satanic lies & verses that “tickle Arab ears”? Let’s examine this closer.
Muhammad posed as an apostle of God. Yet his life is filled with lustfulness (12 marriages and sex with a child, slaves and concubines), rapes, warfare, conquests, and unmerciful butcheries. The infinitely good, just and all holy God of the Bible simply cannot tolerate anything in the least unjust or sinful. Yet He cared enough for us sinners to mercifully take our sins upon Himself. It is revealing that this “Allah”, never tries to change Muhammad’s sinfulness or life style.
Below is taken from “Islam Reviewed” by M. Ali:
Islam opposes the cardinal teachings of Christianity such as the sonship of Christ, the fatherhood of God and the death of Jesus Christ. Because of these opposing doctrinal views, the need to review Islam is critical to those who hunger for truth. The teachings on the person of Christ determine the genuineness or falsity of any religion. Without Christ, all religions could be right.
Attributing fatherhood to God is condemned vehemently by Allah in the Koran. In fact, it is regarded as blasphemy. Together with the many scientific, historical, and simple mathematical errors found in the Qur’an/Koran (see more on these errors below) which cannot be reconciled, this is chief among the reasons that Muslims believe the Bible texts have been corrupted. Muslims are of the opinion that Jesus never addressed Himself with any title of Sonship. This title is so repulsive to Allah that he even resorted to outright cursing in one of the suras in the Koran:
. . .The Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth. [In this] they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God’s curse be upon them . . (Surat attaubah, 30).
If Allah is really the Rahman Rahim (i.e. the Beneficent, the Merciful) why doesn’t he wish that the “blasphemous” Christians repent?
This Allah resorts to outright cursing? Yet in the Bible, God has to bear with Satan until the appointed time. Why can’t Allah bear with Christians? At this point, one is forced to ask: who is this Allah that has to resort cursing those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God? Could he be the same God that spoke in the Bible? If the Bible and the Koran had the same author, would they not definitely speak the same thing?
It does not mean God married a wife and begat Jesus in the usual biological process, as the Koranic Allah declares. Jesus is the unique Son of God in a spiritual sense. Because of the marvelous love the Bible God has towards sinners, He came down to us in the person of Jesus Christ. He became known to us as God’s Son and He came to save us from our sins.
“And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16).
Muslims cannot imagine God loving sinners to the extent of coming down personally, as the Son, to save them. To Muslims this is evidence of polytheism, because they are taught in the Koran that Allah does not love sinners (Surah 2:190). This is repeated twenty four times in the Koran for emphasis. That Allah does not love unbelievers (Surah 3:31) and that he has even blocked their ears, sealed their hearts and blindfolded their eyes (Surah 2:6-7). All these are in direct opposition to Bible teachings which instruct that:
“God commended His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us” (Roman 5:8)
The central theme of the Bible is this:
“For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)
Are you a sinner? You know down in your heart that you are. You also know in your heart that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. But in spite of all your sins, the Bible God loves you and has made provision for your salvation through His perfect sacrifice, the shed blood of Jesus, His only Son.
The word Arabic “inni-mutawaffeeka” translated “I will take thee” is the point of controversy among scholars. Some hold that the word means death of sleep and God raised him in his sleep.
1 Others say the word means I, God, ‘take you’ from the world, but not by death.
2 Yet others claim it means God caused Jesus to die three hours and then raised him.
3 Muhammad Ibn Ishaq said, he was dead seven hours, then God raised him to life and took him to heaven. Dr. Anis Shorrosh says:
4 “As an Arab, I have never known of any other meaning than death for this expression, i.e. ‘inni-mutawaffeeka’, within or outside the Koran.”
The controversy rages on in Surah 4, An-nisa, 157:
“That they said [in boast], We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of God; But they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no [certain] knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.
From this Surah comes the popular belief of Muslims that Allah cast the likeness of Jesus onto another man and that this man was the one crucified while Jesus was snatched into heaven. Muslims believe that the world was deceived into believing that it was Jesus that was crucified.
The Chief culprit in this deception is Allah himself. Whoever invented this clever fable actually did a good job for Islam, but not a thorough one. He fell short of identifying the Jesus substitute, thereby leaving room for more controversies.
Muslims deem it convenient to select Judas Iscariot since he was the one that betrayed Jesus. But that cannot be since Judas, after betraying Jesus, was overwhelmed with guilt and committed suicide (Matthew 27:3-5). And so Muslims must swim and eventually sink (unless they repent) in the ocean of dilemma into which Allah and Koran have immersed them.
Realizing the untenable nature of the ambiguous statement in Surah 4:157, some scholars are busy experimenting with more “suitable” theories. One such scholar is the aggressive sophist, Ahmed Deedat. In one of his specious arguments entitled Resurrection or Resuscitation?, Deedat propounded the “Swoon theory” as a theory that Jesus survived the cross half dead and recovered afterwards in a roomy grave.
The repeated denial of Jesus’ death on the cross in Surah 4:157 not only exposes Allah’s deception, but it also exposes his ignorance of prophetic tradition. The true God mentioned the triumph of Messiah (Jesus) over Satan through death when He gave the promise in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:15). The Prophet Isaiah predicted His (Jesus) virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14) and also His atoning death (Isaiah 53:5-9). The Prophet David, whom Muslims call Anabiya Dauda, also prophesied Jesus’ death (Psalm 16:10), a prophecy which is confirmed in Acts 13:32-35.
If you are the kind of person who is skeptical of fulfilled prophecies, then consider one that will be fulfilled at Christ’s second coming:
“And I will pour upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of Grace and supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced” (Zech 12:10; CF. Rev. 1:7).
An Allah who is ignorant of these prophecies cannot be a true God even if he claims to be one. As we see in Surat al-Maryam, 15: “So peace on him [refers to John] the day he was born, the day that he dies and the day that he will be raised up alive [again]!”
And verse 33 of the same sura:
“So peace is on me [Jesus] the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day I shall be raised up to life.”
There is no arguing the fact that Muslims believe the Apostle John (Yahaya) was born and died according to the first verse. Then why not believe the same of Jesus the Christ according to the second verse?
Because the order of the two verses is the same and the wordings are practically the same. The context in the second can only mean one thing.
Yusuf Ali seems to realize this fact. 1 In comparing Surah 19:15 with Surah 19:33, he commented thus:
“Christ was not crucified (Surah 4:157) but those who believed He never died should ponder over this verse (i.e. 33 of Surat al-Maryam)”.
Some do not want to believe the crucifixion on the ground that God would not have allowed His chosen prophet like Jesus to be killed by wicked hands. Such reasoning is refuted by the Koran itself.
They (also) said:
“God took our promise not to believe in an apostle unless he showed us a sacrifice consumed by fire [from heaven]. Say: ‘there came to you apostles before me, with clear signs and even with what ye ask for: why then did ye slay them, if ye speak the truth?’ ” (Surah 3:183).
If we examine the whole Koran, we find that the only messenger who came from God with the kind of offering described in the above quoted Surah is Christ as can be seen in Surah 5:115-117.
The Apostle Paul, whom Muslims hate to hear, made an amazing remark concerning the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. A remark which makes a mockery of anyone trying to deny this historical event.
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He arose again the third day according to the Scriptures: And that He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep” (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).
In essence, the Apostle Paul is saying this: if you are in doubt, go and ask the eyewitnesses. If the Muslims knew the importance of the cross in Gods program, they certainly would not have rejected it. Satan knows that he met his Waterloo through the death and resurrection of Jesus:
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also Himself [Jesus] likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that hath the power of death, that is the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their life time subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:14, 15).
This was the sole mission of Christ and He accomplished it, praise God. Contrary to Muslim allegations, neither Christ nor Paul established a religion. Religion is Satan’s dragnet to catch men into Hell-fire, while Christ came purposely to conquer Satan and deliver as many as put their trust in Him. Does the Koran inform us of how Allah defeated Satan? No, on the contrary, Allah even incorporates Satan’s cohorts (the jinns demons) into the Islamic fold (Surah 72:14), and concentrates on fighting against the Salvation plan of the Bible God.
Historic Note: In Jerusalem, on the ancient temple mount of God most Holy, Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan, in 688 AD, built the Dome of the Rock as a memorial to Muhammad. The Dome was erected just 300 feet south of where the Solomonic Temple once stood, and only a few hundred yards from where Jesus was crucified. Within the Dome is a prominent inscription in Arabic that reads: “God forbid that He should have a Son.”
The Al Aqsa Mosque was constructed around A.D. 709 to serve as a shrine near another shrine, the Dome of the Rock, which was built by an Islamic caliph.
About 100 years ago, Al Aqsa in Jerusalem (Yerushalayim in Hebrew and al-Quds in Arabic) became associated with the place Muslims came to believe Muhammad ascended to heaven. Jerusalem, however, is not mentioned in the Quran. Jerusalem was NEVER mentioned at all – at any time as a holy place in the Muslim Qur’an. This Palestinian obsession with Jerusalem only came later in the 20th century – when Muslims decided to use it to convince the gullible in the United Nations – and liberals in America and in the West that Jerusalem was somehow holy to Muslims. In all History it never was.
According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad took a journey in a single night from “a sacred mosque” – believed to be in Mecca in southern Saudi Arabia – to “the farthest mosque,” and from a rock there ascended to heaven to receive revelations from Allah that became part of the Quran. There was nothing on the Temple Mount during Muhammad’s life time. So how could the Jewish temple site be their “farthest mosque”? Muhammad died in 632 A.D.
Palestinians today claim exclusivity over the Temple Mount and Palestinian leaders routinely deny Jewish historic connection to the site, yet historically, Muslims never claimed the al Aqsa Mosque as their “third holiest site” and always recognized the existence of the Jewish Temples.
According to research by Israeli author Shmuel Berkovits, Islam previously disregarded Jerusalem. He points out in his book “How Dreadful Is this Place!” that Muhammad was said to loathe Jerusalem and what it stood for.
ISLAM, LIKE SATAN – WANTS ONLY SLAVES….
Most Muslims do not realize that Islam allows no freedom. This alone should make them realize that it is Satan behind Islam, and not an eternal God. Satan wishes only to enslave Muslims to help him enslave the entire world. He does this by turning them away from the truth — that salvation is yours already, if you only have faith in God’s Son, Jesus. Islam is a religion based on intimidation and fear. The word “Islam” does not mean “peace.” Muslims who tell you that the word “Islam” means “peace” are lying to you. The word “Islam” is an Arabic word. The word for peace in Arabic is “solh,” and not Islam. Islam is derived from the root word “taslim,” which means submission or surrender. A Muslim is not allowed to leave Islam or else risk his or her life. At birth, a person is branded either Muslim or non-Muslim depending on one’s descent.
Among other things, the religion of Islam is a brain-washing religion, and that is why so many Muslims turn into crazy mindless zombies. The Muslims are required to pray 5 times a day in Arabic to a God who is not there, from the moment they embrace Islam; and when they do so they touch their head to the floor. That is one reason they get so brain-washed, this repetitive prayer. You can often spot fanatical Muslims by the marks on their foreheads resulting from this repetitive touching their head to the floor, where they may whack their head if they really get into it. As an example, take a look at the below image (and all others released) of Osama’s Al Qaida second in command, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, who always gives an anti-U.S. rant; Dr. Ayman has this tell-tale bruise on his forehead from too much head-whacking.
If you are a Muslim, and not praying the mandatory 5 times a day (in Arabic), which must be preceded by the ritual washing/ablution (Wudu) , according to Muhammad you are in great danger of going to hell. Muslims may be excused from observing the other pillars of Islam like fasting, almsgiving, pilgrimage to Mecca. But, no Muslim is ever excused from mandatory 5 times a day prayer. In Christianity there is no compulsion or mandatory prayer. The Lord God has given Christians free will. Christians know they are to honor God every day, and not just on a Sunday. Muslims should count their “blessings”. During Muhammad’s fanciful mystical Night Journey to Heaven, Muhammad said that he was originally told by Allah to command his followers to pray fifty times daily, but later Allah revealed this to be too much of a burden. What Muhammad probably meant was he soon found out that even he couldn’t keep up with fifty mandatory prayer sessions a day. So like many Sura’s you’ll see below, miraculously a Surah appeared to help Muhammad out in his personal life.
In Christianity, there is no such compulsion. Yahweh wants heartfelt prayers. Not scripted prayers. Christians know enough to speak with God as their “Abba” (literally – daddy in Aramaic). Muslims typically never even think of one-on-one, two-way prayers to God. Muslim prayers resemble a “broadcast”; and no reply from their Allah is usually ever expected.
Jesus told us: “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen (pagans) do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.” Matthew 6:7 – 8
How to spot the truly fanatical Muslim
Notice top of Ayman al-Zawahiri’s forehead
Satan, Muhammad and al-Zawahiri all “rail” against the cross!
CAIRO, Egypt, Dec. 11, 2005 In a taped message Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged all Muslims to take up arms and said their refusal to join the fight against “the Cross and Zionism” was a “malignant illness” that would only lead to the defeat of militant Islam.
Another example of this mindless zombie behavior you see in Muslims is the Shiite Muslim “holiday” of Ashoura, commemorating the death of Muhammad’s grandson Husayn. Some Shiite Muslims stab themselves in the head on this “holiday”, making a cut on their heads and beating the wound so it keeps bleeding. And the “bleeders” then walk around in groups yelling. And the cruelest and worst practice of Muslims is their practice of genital cutting (aka: FGC, Female Genital Cutting), genital mutilation, of young girls in Muslim countries. It has been estimated that approximately 2 million infants, young girls, and women are subjected to this painful and needless practice each year worldwide. FGC is typically done without anesthesia or antibiotics.
A symptom of enslavement:
BUT, WHAT ABOUT THE CRUSADES – YOU MAY BE ASKING:
Every Christian who participated in the Crusades, did so, against the teachings of Jesus.
However, in retrospect, the Crusades probably allowed the western world a thousand years of freedom from the diabolical Islamic religion. The Crusaders stopped the expansion of the Islamic empire. This allowed Christianity to prosper in Europe which preserved the gospel for the rest of the world to receive.
The Crusades were a reaction to the Muslim crusades against the entire world.
In the 7th century, the Muslims took control of Jerusalem, and in the 11th century they began to hassle, kill, molest Christian pilgrims in the Jerusalem area. The Muslim Turks even attacked Rome and Belgrade in 1456 A.D. The Crusades were also in response to the cries of help from the eastern Byzantine Empire, which was very worried about the military threat to it from the Seljuk Turks. So if the Christians did not respond, the Muslims would have conquered all of Europe and wiped out Christianity from the planet. Did this have any significance to Osama bin Laden’s sick mind? The Muslim high point in Europe ended when they were turned back from Vienna on September 11, 1683 A.D.
In AD 1009, Kalif Hakem of Egypt ordered the destruction of the Holy Sepulcher and all Christian places of worship in Jerusalem. Christians were persecuted cruelly and pilgrims were attacked.
Here is a speech from Pope Urban II to Christians from this Crusader era:
For your brethren who live in the east are in urgent need of your help, and you must hasten to give them the aid which has often been promised to them. For, as most of you have heard, the Turks and Arabs have attacked them and have conquered the territory of Romania (the Greek empire) as far west as the shore of the Mediterranean and the Hellespont, which is called the Arm of St. George. They have occupied more and more of the lands of those Christians, and have overcome them in seven battles. They have killed and captured many, and have destroyed the churches and devastated the empire. If you permit them to continue thus for a while with impunity, the faithful of God will be much more widely attacked by them. On this account I, or rather the Lord, beseech you as Christ’s heralds to publish this everywhere and to persuade all people whatever rank, foot-soldiers and knights, poor and rich, to carry aid promptly to those Christians and to destroy that vile race from the lands of our friends.
SPAIN UNDER THE MOORS
Neither was Spain under the Muslim Moors the jewel of Islamic tolerance that it is often purported to be. In 920 A.D. all the inhabitants of Muez were put to the sword. Cordova, Zarajoza and Merida were burned to the ground, with all adult males executed and all women and children enslaved. In AD 1066 all the Jews of Grenada were slaughtered. In AD 1126, all the Christians of Grenada were deported to Morocco.
CARNAGE IN CONSTANTINOPLE
Under Mehmet II the Turks conquered the great Byzantine capital, Constantinople. On 29 May, 1453 A.D., waves of Turkish soldiers swept into Constantinople, the greatest city in the world at that time, and put it to the sword. Priceless libraries and irreplaceable works of art were burned, the population slaughtered, even in the Hagia Sophia, the greatest Christian church in the world at that time.
For centuries the Turks demanded an annual “blood levy” of Christian boys. Parents were forced to hand over one out of every five Christian boys for service in the Sultan’s army as janissaries.
In 1860 over 12,000 Christians were slaughtered in Lebanon. In 1876 14,700 Bulgarians were murdered by the Turks. 200,000 Armenian Christians were slaughtered by the Turks in Bayazid in 1877. And in 1915 the Turks massacred over 1.5 million Armenian Christians. As recently as September 1922 the Turkish army destroyed the ancient city of Smyrna with its 300,000 Christian population.
About Muhammad himself:
Moslems, as well as others, have disregarded the historical facts. They have continually striven to turn this man [Mohammed] into an imaginary superhuman being, a sort of God in human clothes, and have generally ignored the ample evidence of his humanity. They have been ready… to present these fantasies as miracles.
Reference: Ali Dashti, “Twenty Three Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad”
Much is known about the life of Muhammad. In 1851, the French scholar Ernest Renan wrote that Muhammad lived “in the full light of history.” Muhammad’s first biographer was Muhammad Ibn Ishag (704-773 A.D.) who wrote “Sirat Rasul Allah”, a work which has not survived. No finished biography of Muhammad appeared until 150 years after his death in Arabia.
According to tradition, Muhammad was born in Mecca on April 20, 570 A.D. Shi’ites say he was born on April 26th. His full name was Muhammad Bin-Abdullah. At the time Muhammad was born Muhammad’s father was the chief of the pagan worshipping tribe of Koreish. Muhammad’s father was ‘Abd All?h ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, of the family of Hashim (Shaiba ibn Hashim). ‘Abd All?h” means “slave of Allah”. His father died soon after his son’s birth–while he was out on a trading expedition. His father was the youngest son of Abdul Muttalib and the great-grandson of Kussai. Muhammad was orphaned early in his life after his mother Amina died and was raised by his grandfather Abdul Muttalib, then chief of the Quraysh (Koreish) tribe, and his uncle Abu-Talib beginning at age 6. Earlier, at about 5 years old while in the care of a Bedouin nurse named Halima Muhammad became subject to epileptic fits. The branch of the Quraysh tribe Muhammad belonged to was known as the Beni Hashem.
At the age of nine the boy Muhammad mounted a camel and went on a merchandising expedition into Syria. It was while with his grandfather and uncle that Muhammad learned learned to be lordly, and to exercise power, to fast, and to pray at certain specified times of the day. The Quraysh tribe prayed to idols at sunrise, noon, and at sunset; and they faced the direction of the idol black stone and the Kaaba.
While away from Arabia he saw the sacred places of the Jews. He stood on the spot where the King of Salem came out and did obeisance to Abraham. He was shown the place where his great mother, the bondwoman Hagar, went forth leading Ishmael by the hand. He saw Damascus, city of the desert, and Sinai, the mountain of the law. Then he returned to Mecca full of visions and dreams. His teen years were as a shepherd and an attendant of caravans.
At the age of 20 Muhammad was hired by a wealthy woman named Khadija (or Khadeejah) to manage her late husband’s caravan business. When Muhammad was 25 he married Khadija; six children were born to them, but only one survived to adulthood; his beloved daughter Fatima. While in the caravan business Muhammad happened to make many journeys to Syria and Palestine. During this time Muhammad became acquainted with both Jews and Christians. Later, the monk-like Muhammad would cause things to be written in the Koran about both Jewish and Christian history, which shows that Muhammad did not possess an intellect befitting a historian. It has also been thought that Muhammad could not read or write. In fact, the Qur’an says Muhammad was illiterate (Ummi) in Surah 7:157. These Qur’an (Koran) entries you will see below are marred with gross errors and inattention to detail. This marriage to the much older Khadija, who was then 40 years old and who already had been married twice proved very fortunate to Muhammad. Muhammad suddenly became equal to the richest men in Mecca. While married to Khadija Muhammad did not marry any other wife. However, after she died, Muhammad would show no restraint in his self gratification for lust with multiple wives, slaves, captives, and even his own adoptive son Zaid’s wife. Khadija gave Muhammad two sons, both of whom died young. They both also had 4 daughters together. Their names were Rockeya, Kolthum, Zeinale, and Fatima. In his older age, Muhammad used to color his hair red to hide his gray hair. He is said to have had a large hairy egg sized mole under his left shoulder. Not being able to find any prophecy of Muhammad’s coming in the Bible – many foolish Arabs have tried to ‘tie’ this hairy mole into Isaiah 9, where it is written, “the government shall be upon his shoulder”.
People used to ask Muhammad’s favorite child bride Aisha how the Prophet lived at home. “Like an ordinary man,” she answered. “He would sweep the house, stitch his own clothes, mend his own sandals; water the camels, milk the goats, help the servants at their work, and eat his meals with them; and he would go to fetch a thing we needed from the market.”
Aisha (only 6 when married) believed whatever Muhammad told her about his divine inspiration. Muhammad claimed that he used to get revelations from Allah only when he slept with Aisha. Why is it that Gabriel did not bother to visit him when Muhammad spent nights with other wives in his harem?
Reference: ahadith from Sahih Bukhari: “Muhammad used to get divine inspiration only in Aisha’s bed”…3.47.755
Aisha did not see Gabriel while Muhammad introduced Gabriel to her…4.54.440
Volume 4, Book 54, Number 440:
Narrated Abu Salama:
‘Aisha said that the Prophet said to her “O ‘Aisha’ This is Gabriel and he sends his (greetings) salutations to you.” ‘Aisha said, “Salutations (Greetings) to him, and Allah’s Mercy and Blessings be on him,” and addressing the Prophet she said, “You see what I don’t see.”
Greatest False Teachings in the Qur’an:
– The New Testament repeatedly declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He was crucified and resurrected to both pay for our sins and to make possible our salvation, but the Qur’an expressly denies all these things. The Qur’an says Jesus was not crucified. (Surah 4:157-158). The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ as an atonement for our sins was a stumbling block to Muhammad. Muhammad said that only one in his likeness was crucified. This clearly contradicts all 4 Gospels (Injil) which Muhammad confirmed in the as the revealed word of God in the Qur’an itself.
Islam is actually guilty of upholding the cause of Satan himself, who argued from the very beginning that man is entitled to disregard the known will of God as Satan had done. Satan lies that man could disregard God’s will without incurring the penalty of death. But God cared enough about our sinful guilty human race to endure our punishment for us Himself, in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, whose perfect atoning sacrifice saved every repentant, believing sinner. To think that one can have eternal Life without someone like Jesus “paying our price” for our sin is to mistakenly believe that God can righteously forgive without requiring any atonement at all. This makes God Himself a protector of sin rather than its avenger.
If you accept Islam, you forever reject Jesus and His substitut suffering and death for your sins on the cross. It is a decision that will effect where you spend eternity.
The New Testament was written by people who walked with Jesus. Muhammad only heard about Jesus (called Isa in the Qur’an) over five centuries later, and even what he heard he seems to have gotten confused.
Jesus was not merely a Prophet
Christians need to remember, Jesus Christ warned us that if you deny Him, He will deny you before the Father. Muslims falsely believe they have “this base” covered because they show reverence to Jesus as a “great Prophet” only.
Surah 3.45: When the angels said: O Marium, surely Allah gives you good news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the ‘. Messiah, Isa (Jesus) son of Marium, worthy of regard in this world and the hereafter and of those who are made near (to Allah).
You “deny” Jesus when you do not follow His teachings, such as He is the only way to the Father and salvation. You deny Jesus when you do not make Him the center of your life. Jesus of Nazareth is the Jewish Messiah foretold thousands of years before His arrival (see here) by numerous Prophets of God. Jesus led a sinless life. And only Jesus, the Son of the Father is the awaited Christ and mediator between you and the Father.
Comparison between Muhammad and Jesus (Isa)
|Jesus is God (John 1, Col. 1) and here. Jesus forgave sins and dispelled demons in His own name. He said “I and the Father are one“.
||Muhammad admitted he is only a man (Surah 18:110)|
|Jesus raised Himself from the dead (Matthew 28:6)and rose into heaven in front of many witnesses.
||Muhammad remains dead|
|His Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection was foretold bynumerous prophets. See here
Proverbs 30:4 (written 700 B.C./1300 yrs before Muhammad): “…What is His name, and what is His son’s name, if thou canst tell?”
|Nothing predicted about Muhammad. The “Comforter” was the Holy Spirit Jesus promised the apostles.
|Jesus lived a sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21).||Allah himself refers to Muhammad as sinful (Surah 40:55, 48:1-2).
|Jesus did numerous miracles to prove His divinity, including raising the dead and command over nature (All Gospel writers and Josephus). While teaching his apostles Jesus said; “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves” (John 14:11 and Matthew 9:2-7)
||On two occasions in the Qur’an Muhammad admitted he could do no miracles to show any sort of divinity or divine calling (Surah 17:90-95; 3:183, also see: 29:50-51)|
|Jesus cared for His enemies (Matthew 5:43-44).Jesus promised to save those who believe and trust in Him.
||Killed his enemies and anyone who disagreed with him (Surah 9:5)|
|Held a high view of marriage and hated divorce – as God the Father does (Matthew 19:7-8).
||Muhammad commanded his adopted son to divorce his wife so that she would become his (Surah 33:36-38)|
|Accurately prophesied many verifiable events that took place after His time (Matthew 24).||Delivered only one –questionable–guess/prophecy about the Romans winning a future battle. No date or place given. (Surah 30:1-4)
|Jesus gave his disciples authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness (Matthew 10:1; Mark 6:12-13)||Muhammad gave his followers the authority to wage war on unbelievers.Muhammad is Allah’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to unbelievers. (Surah 48:29)|
Jesus told his disciples not to ask for money, and not to carry money with them. (Matthew 10:8-9, Luke 10:7)
Muhammad instructed his followers on how to divide booty they seized from unbelievers. He insisted on 20% for himself.
Jesus said to his followers that if anyone will not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town. (Matthew 10:14-15, 23)
|Muhammad ordered Muslims to attack any city that rejected Islam.|
|Jesus told his followers to get ready, because unbelievers would flog them, arrest them, and put them on trial (Matthew 10:16-19)||Muhammad told his followers to fight (militarily) hard against unbelievers.“Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush…” Surah 9:5. Also see Surah 9:29.|
|Jesus washed his disciples’ feet.He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. John 13:4-5, 12-17||One day after battle, Muhammad came back home and said to his daughter Fatima, “Wash the blood from this sword and I swear in the name of Allah this sword was obeying me all the time.” Muhammad then took the swords of his friend Ali ibn Abu Talib and washed them for him.
|Jesus never took up a sword or encouraged anyone else to do so. Once a close follower took it upon himself to take up a sword. Jesus soundly reprimanded him. Jesus warned; “all who take the sword will perish by the sword” (Matthew 26:52)||According to Muslim scholar Pickthal, “the number of campaigns (military) he (Muhammad) led in person during the last ten years of his life is twenty-seven, in nine of which there was hard fighting. The number of expeditions which he planned and sent out under other leaders is thirty-eight” (n.d., pg. xxvi)|
|Jesus said: “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? (Matthew 5:44-46)||Surah 9:29: PICKTHAL: “Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture (Christians & Jews) as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.”
Jesus’s last message to his followers about himself and his mission:Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:46-47
Muhammad’s last speech to his followers on Mt Arafat:…..”I descended by Allah with the sword in my hand, and my wealth will come from the shadow of my sword. And the one who will disagree with me will be humiliated and persecuted.”

Islamic Satanic Lies
Islam is built on subtle lies which have been concocted by evil men in order to maintain cohesion and discipline within their robber band. Islam is the only religion that says that Jesus did not die on the cross. Islam denies this historical fact about Jesus which therefore negates the salvation given us by the Son of God’s painful death and miraculous resurrection from the dead. Even the Jewish Sanhedrin (High Religious Court) in Jerusalem admits Jesus died there. In addition to the writers of the 4-Gospels and Josephus, the Jewish 1st century historian (See Antiquities 18-63) — the Jewish Babylonian Talmud (Sanhedrin 43a) from the Tannaitic Period recorded: “On the eve of the Passover Yeshu [the Nazarene] was hanged”…. This means on a wooden cross.
The Miracle Surrounding the Death of Jesus
Also, A pagan historian by the name of Thallus, who lived shortly after the resurrection of Christ (about A.D. 52) wrote concerning a miraculous darkness that covered the earth at the Passover of A.D. 32 and attempted to explain it as an eclipse of the sun.
Islam claims to be a religion of the people of “The Book”, or Ahel al-Kitab, which would have one believe it is a continuance of that Book God revealed to His Jewish Prophets. If it were, it would not deny what is in that “Book”, especially after confirming the authority of the Jewish Torah and Christian Gospels. If Islam was true, Muslims would know the name of the true God is not Allah, but Yahweh. See more about Mohammed found in the Bible Codes here. These matrixes say: “Mohammed Profanes My Holy Name” and “Mohammed, Blaspheming, Demon”.
Satan has conned Muslims into misdirecting their prayers to a pagan Moon god!
To be saved – you only have to know One name and it is NOT Allah. The name of Allah is found nowhere in “the book” (Torah or Gospels of Jesus).
As you will see below, “Allah” was an old pagan tribal “moon god” in the Arabian Peninsula.
Indeed, it is an established archaeological fact that worship of the moon-god was the main religion of the ancient Middle East.
But what about the Arabian Peninsula, where Mohammed (570-632) launched Islam? During the last two centuries, prominent archaeologists have unearthed thousands of inscriptions which prove beyond any doubt that the dominant religion of Arabia during Mohammed’s day was the cult of the moon-god.
In fact, for generations before Muhammad was born, the Arabs worshipped some 360 pagan gods housed at a stone temple in Mecca called the Kabah. According to archaeologists, the chief deity of Mecca was the moon-god called al-ilah (meaning the god or the idol), which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. Pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave themselves: Muhammad’s father ‘Abd All?h ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib’, for example, had Allah as part of his name. Allah then is an ancient Arabian “moon god, and the son of Baal”.
Muslims are wrongly taught about the Trinity. The Trinity has nothing to do with how many gods there are. It only has to do with God’s nature and the three persons/natures that make up the one God. Christians know there is only one God, but this God has 3 persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). This is a mystery. “Can a dog understand the nature of man?” Likewise, we only have proofs of God’s three natures. God is spirit and light. God’s Holy Spirit is present in all places at once.
Muslims have to get over the lie that God cannot begot. He surely did. He did it in “the book”. Look to Genesis where God says;
Genesis 1:26 (4000 Before Christ / 4570 yrs before Muhammad):
“And God said, Let us make man in our image….”
Proverbs 30:4 (700 Before Christ / 1270 yrs before Muhammad): “Who hath ascended up into heaven or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the Earth? What is His name, and what is His son’s name, if thou canst tell?”
(Psalm 2:11-12) Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Muslims generally mistakenly conceive of this term “begotten” as meaning a literal, physical, sexual act between God and Mary. The Christian Church never taught that. Islamic mullahs and imams are those who teach that lie in order to confuse. “Begotten” here does not concern physical birth.
It’s equally hard to understand to some that a person is also tripartite. God created us with 3 distinct but entirely separate “parts”. But, nevertheless, it is true. We have a physical body, a spirit and a soul (intellect & will).
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23
Moses in Deuteronomy speaks of a Triune God. In Deuteronomy 6:4 where Moses says; “Hear O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.” The Hebrew word for “one” in this passage is ‘echad’, which in Hebrew refers to a combined unity. From the root word meaning to unify or collect together. In the Bible ‘echad’ often refers to the combining of two or more things. A few other examples in Scripture where the word ‘echad’ is used are in Genesis 2:24: “The two shall be one flesh”. The two dreams that Joseph interpreted for the Pharaoh are describes being ‘one’. (Genesis 41:25-26)
If Muslims would read their own Qur’an they would realize Allah can and DID do such a thing.
Surah 3:47 – She (Mary) said: My Lord! when shall there be a son (born) to me, and man has not touched me? He said: Even so, Allah creates what He pleases; when He has decreed a matter, He only says to it, Be, and it is.
Note: Begotten means “come from” without necessarily being created. Before the beginning of time, Jesus, who is also called the Word of God and the Logos, came from God the Father. Logos means the divine Word of God; the second person in the Trinity (incarnate in Jesus). God is Spirit and loving light! Exactly how Jesus and the Father are one is a mystery. Try and picture two spot lights focused on the same spot. These separate lights merge as one.
Two Examples of the Father & Son as One:
Muslims have this erroneous vision of Allah as carnal body. It is often for this reason that Muslims cannot envision God miraculously overshadowing Mary to conceive a Son. The concept of “only begotten Son”, meaning not made, but one and the same substance with the Father –usually escapes Muslims entirely.
For graphic examples of what Christians mean when they say that Jesus is one with the Father, read this true Near Death Experience (NDE) here – – showing the light of the Father and of Jesus is one and the same. And this true NDE, here, by an ex-Atheist, again showing God as loving light; in short Spirit.
Words of Jesus Himself:
John 2: 22-23
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
“Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravaging wolves.
They worship Me in vain, teaching as doctrines the commands of men.”
Leave them alone! They are blind guides. And if the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
False messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
Christians were told in the Bible to be on-guard and that the Antichrist will not only just be a man who appears shortly before the Lord Jesus returns, but also a movement (Islam) which denies that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God. Islam is adamant in its denial of the deity of Jesus.
It is easy to overlook, but followers of Islam place their eternal salvation entirely on the whimsical sayings of only one single man – the imperfect and violent man Muhammad.
Christianity and Judaism is heavily corroborated by many different prophets and apostles of God. Additionally, Christianity and Judaism abound with many, many miracles, all witnessed by throngs of people. Physical evidence such as 5,300 original manuscripts confirming the New Testament (Injeel) are still here to read.
The fact of the matter is; not one individual or document can corroborate Muhammad’s testimony.
As prophecies go, Muhammad simply made none!
Muhammad made only 1 very vague utterance (guess) that wishfully might be considered a prophecy. This was when he said that in a few years the Romans would win a battle. No time or place was even given. As to any signs that Muhammad was divinely inspired, Muhammad admitted twice he could do no miracles.
An Apostle of God must prove his mission by working miracles.
All God’s prophets (Muhammad did not) did miracles to prove they were speaking for God. God would have it no other way.
The life of Jesus on earth abounded with astounding miracles. The Qur’an itself declares in Surah 5:110 that Jesus performed miracles. Forget what’s in the made up Hadiths; the Qur’an itself admits twice that Muhammad said he could do no miracles (Suras 13:7 and Surah 17:90-94 ). Jesus makes it quite clear that miracles are necessary to prove what one speaks is of divine origin. Jesus said; “If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.” (John 15:24). Jesus made the deaf hear, the lame walk, the blind see, the dumb speak. He multiplied 5 loaves of bread to feed 5000 people, and he cured lepers and many other diseased people, and raised the dead with his word only. One woman was cured by just touching Jesus’ garment. Jesus walked on water, caste out demon spirits, raised his own self from the dead, and finally rose to heaven in front of many witnesses. The ability to confirm one’s oral proclamation with supernatural acts is what sets the genuine apart from the counterfeit (The Quran Unveiled, page 216).
The so-called “Prophet” of Islam lived an extremely sinful life of raping, plundering and murdering for profit. His entire purpose for the Qur’an (Koran) was simply to increase his personal self esteem, attain superior status, and for maintaining discipline and cohesion within his robber band. An Apostle of God must be a good and righteous man as Jesus was and Muhammad was not.
Muhammad’s inability to perform even a single miracle to prove his connection with divinity forced him to establish his own credibility in the Qur’an, by numerous threats to obey him, and so-called revelations calling on Muslims to venerate him. 201 times in the Qur’an Muhammad had the need to make sure everyone knows that he is “Allah’s Messenger”. Typical of Muhammad’s threats in the Qur’an is this in Surah 33:57: “Those who annoy Allah and His Apostle – Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment.”
Note: John the Baptist’s main role was not as a prophet, but as a forerunner.
Muhammad had a diabolical aversion to the form of the cross.
Symptomatic of the state of Muhammad’s soul during his lifetime is the strikingly similar behavior regarding the cross that demons have demonstrated over and over.
According to Al Waqidi, Muhammad would break everything brought into the house with a shape of the cross on it. Additionally, Ahmad ibn Hanbal (A.D. 855) said that Muhammad would foam at the mouth during prayer. Christians should immediately remember the Apostle Mark’s telling of Jesus casting a demon out of a boy who was possessed. This demon-possessed boy also showed this symptom of “foaming at the mouth”.
More than eight hundred million human beings confess Islam, the religion Muhammad founded. There is no more militant movement on earth equal to Islam. No religion teaches hatred more than Islam. Jesus said; “many false prophets will rise up and deceive man.” Islam has managed to turn billions of people away from the true Word of God, and not merely by its distraction of the truth. But also by its outright denial of the truth.
There is never any hatred preached against Muslims or anyone when Christians and Jews Worship God. This is not true in Islam. Is it?
Here is an interesting January 2007 article about a show on British television where undercover “Muslims” were sent into mosques during a 12 month period, and tape what was being said. Among other things, it shows clerics at a number of leading British mosques exhorting followers to prepare for jihad, to hit girls for not wearing the hijab, and to follow Islamic law over UK law. Some are praising the Taliban. In response to the news that a British Muslim solider was killed fighting the Taliban, the Muslim speaker declares: “The hero of Islam is the one who separated his head from his shoulders.” Another speaker says Muslims cannot accept the rule of non-Muslims. “You cannot accept the rule of the kaffir,” Dr Ijaz Mian tells a meeting held within the mosque. “We have to rule ourselves and we have to rule the others.” Read here
– Surah 9:5 – But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war);
– Surah’s 8:39; 9:5; 9:29: 47:4 in the Muslim Qur’an are ‘divine’ commandments to persecute Jews and Christians, to defeat them in battle and then to consign them either to slavery or to death.
April 27, 2007
Prayer by Sheik Ahmad Bahr, acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, declared during a Friday sermon at a Sudan mosque that America and Israel will be annihilated and called upon Allah to kill Jews and Americans “to the very Last One”.
“Oh Allah, vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one. Oh Allah, show them a day of darkness. Oh Allah, who sent down His Book, the mover of the clouds, who defeated the enemies of the Prophet defeat the Jews and the Americans, and bring us victory over them.”
Jesus Never Spoke of Another true Prophet to Follow Him
Islam vainly tries to gain legitimacy over other, older religions, by creating a scene in which the former prophets agree to Mohammad’s mastery.
Muslims often deliberately claim that Jesus spoke of Muhammad as that prophet who would follow him, or that Muhammad was the “Comforter” Jesus promised would come. The references Muslims vainly cling to about this are mentions of a comforter to follow Jesus in John chapters 14, 15, and 16. Both of these are more Islamic lies. Jesus did warn us that false prophets (Muhammad) with false Gospels (Qur’an) would follow Him, and try to deceive many.
The Comforter Jesus spoke of was the Holy Spirit who filled the Apostles while they gathered together on Pentecost. While gathered together they all began speaking in foreign tongues. The Comforter/Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh also imparted the ways of God on Mary, the Apostles of Jesus, and about 120 other Disciples that day. Three thousand came into the Church that same day. Jesus’ followers then immediately took Him seriously and they went out and began preaching the Gospel. The Comforter was NOT Muhammad. In John 14:26 the comforter is specifically identified as the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in the name of Jesus Christ. There is no mention of any Allah, Muhammad, or any prophet to follow Jesus in any Christian or Jewish Holy Books.
Jesus told us, there would only be one more revelation of truth that would come after Him. John 14:17, 16:7 & 13 tell us that Jesus said a “Spirit of Truth” (not a man – a Spirit), the Comforter would come after He Himself departed. This Comforter was to guide us “into all truth”. So there would then be no truth remaining which would be sealed or hidden. Christians know this “Comforter” as the third person of the triune God, or the “Holy Spirit”.
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26).
The “Comforter” refers to the Holy Spirit who descended on the Apostles of Jesus at Pentecost, just as Jesus said.
This is another attempt by Islam to gain some sort of credibility. Jesus foretold the coming of the “Comforter”, which is the Holy Spirit.
Jesus did not say the following:
`Jesus, the son of Mary, said, O children of Israel, verily I am the Apostle of God sent unto you confirming the law which was given before me, and bringing good tidings of an Apostle who shall come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.’ (Surah 7:157)
We at Bible Probe believe Muhammad is one of those false prophets who would deceive many (billions of souls) that Jesus warned us about.
This following passage from the Qur’an shows that Muhammad was one of the imposter’s Jesus warned about. In the passage below, Muhammad attempts to make himself equal to the sinless Jesus who showed his divinity by many miracles.
Muhammad himself admitted twice he could do no miracles.
In fact nowhere in the Qur’an does Muhammad perform even one miracle. So for Muslims to claim he performed miracles when the Qur’an itself states he did not is simply lies.
There are no recorded miracles of Muhammad in the Qur’an, but when Muhammad’s followers saw Muhammad’s inferiority to Jesus they started making some up in the Hadith: Muhammad cut the moon in half with a sword, a palm tree cried like a baby because Muhammad wouldn’t preach under it, Muhammad made water flow out of his fingernails so that people could drink–the Hadith contradicts itself on how many supposedly people drank it. These made up “miracles” go on and on. Also, the Hadith makes it clear that Muhammad was a sinner–NOT sinless as some Muslims now claim: “Muhammad replied…”O Allah, set me apart from my sins…” Volume 1, number 711
The Hadith, Bukhari, Vol 2, No. 167 “The sun eclipsed and the prophet jumped up terrified that it might be the Hour (of Judgement)”
– Surah 17:90-94 of the Qur’an tells about how, when Muhammad was challenged to perform a miracle and prove he was from the true god, he could not perform any and here he actually says himself: “Am I anything but a man,- a messenger? “.
– In Surah 13:7, we find that Muhammad did not perform any miracles. The people are saying that even one sign would be enough to convince them, just one miracle performed by Muhammad – and yet he still does none….
All along, the unbelievers asked Muhammad to perform a miracle so that they could believe. All they got in response was,
– Surah 17:90 They say: “We will by no means believe in you until you cause a fountain to gush forth from the earth for us.,”
And Muhammad would reply:
– Surah 17:93 Say: “Am I anything but a man,- a messenger?”
Muhammad did no miracles. He did not heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, or rule the wind and the waves. He had no more power than any normal man. The famous Iranian scholar, Ali Dashti comments:
Moslems, as well as others, have disregarded the historical facts. They have continually striven to turn this man [Mohammed] into an imaginary superhuman being, a sort of God in human clothes, and have generally ignored the ample evidence of his humanity. They have been ready… to present these fantasies as miracles.
Reference: Ali Dashti, “Twenty Three Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad”,
Muhammad even disqualified himself as a true Prophet of God.
– Surah 29:27 states clearly that, as far as Allah and the Qur’an are concerned, the only true prophets are those related to Isaac (Ishaq) or Jacob (Yaqoub); yet Muhammad, according to Muslim tradition, is related to Ishmael and not Isaac or Jacob.
The real God (Yahweh) chose to establish His covenant with Abraham and Sarah’s son Isaac, instead of with Ishmael, the son of the slave girl Hagar. God informed Abraham a full year before Isaac’s birth that he would perpetuate His covenant through Isaac, not Ishmael. This choice of Isaac by God is mentioned 5 times, beginning in Genesis 17:18-21. Both God and Abraham cared for the young Ishmael. But, God only promised to make the descendents of Ishmael a great nation. Yet, who did this false Islamic god, Allah adopt? Ishmael! In fact, an important Islamic holiday called Id-al-Adha celebrates the bogus near sacrifice of Ishmael by Abraham in Mecca. Even though there is nothing in scripture suggesting Abraham ever set foot in Arabia.
Herein lies another prophetic truth! God rejected Ishmael and Esau because they were “wild donkeys” (Genesis 16:12) and men of the sword (Genesis 27:40). God did promise, however, to make Ishmael a great nation (Arabs). Who can deny that Islam, with its roots in Arabia, has not always acted like psychotic “wild donkeys” and “men of the sword”? I call to mind the rather recent “Cartoon” row with worldwide demonstrations by Muslims. Nothing of the sort occurred in Christendom after Dan Brown published his best selling book of lies known as the “Da Vinci Code”.
No prophet of God was ever subject to epileptic fits & uncertainty- like Muhammad was…
We know from Islamic historians that Muhammad’s many wives did believe he was a a prophet of Allah, in part, because Muhammad would frequently go into epileptic frenzies and foam at the mouth, while receiving his “revelations”. Also, unlike any of the true prophets of Israel, Muhammad would go through prolonged periods of time when he himself thought he was going mad, or that he was possessed by demons. The Hebrew prophets never acted like this. The Hebrew prophets were certain that God (Yahweh) was speaking to them.
What can be rationally thought of the nearly weekly suicide bombings by Muslims, and the very real Muslim psychosis of thinking they will kill every Jew, and then every Christian and Hindu and every other non-believer, who doesn’t convert to Islam? I advise Islam to read the real “Book” that says in Jeremiah (Prophet Jeremiah) that “there will be no more Jews on the face of the earth when the moon, the sun and the stars no longer shine.”
A Prophet must make prophecies:
In the Christian/Jewish Bible there are literally hundreds of prophecies, all made in God’s name. There are over 300 foretelling the coming of Jesus –in detail. Yet in the Qur’an there is but one prophecy, and this is in Surah 30:1-4.
In this gem of a Surah we are told that the Roman empire has been defeated but that, “in a land close by” the Romans will be victorious again “in a few years”.
Think about this for a minute! The “prophet” Muhammad gave no signs, performed not one miracle and made but one, vague, uttering taken for a “prophecy” that sometime in the next few years the 7th century Romans who were still somewhat strong militarily would have a victory. Earth shaking stuff, huh?
100% Accuracy is Expected from the True God
The Koran is without a doubt filled with many serious scientific, historical and theological errors. The Islamic Koran (Qur’an), unlike the Judeo-Christian Bible is written in a style that is deliberately misleading. The only joy Muslims find in reading of the Qur’an is that of its poetry and that they believe that it came from God. Nothing in the Qur’an will either save you from your sins or point you to eternal life.
The Koran is written in an esoteric, mysterious and vague style. Its rhythmic prose and the jingling sounds of the words give great delight to Arab ears. It is also written in a incorrect, arbitrary and haphazard order, as if the uninspired human – Muhammad died before putting it together correctly. In addition to countless repetitions and redundant exclamations, the Qur’an meanders from one idea to another, without any real connection between them. It reads as if a lot of uninspired, uneducated men were renting their rage on many things. The only book I know of that exceeds the Koran in deliberate tediousness, false claims, and incoherence is the Book of Mormon. It is quite obvious to any reader of the Qur’an that Muhammad had not a clue of the role in God’s plan for salvation that the Jewish Messiah (Jesus) was to play.
The Qur’an is one man’s ticket from mediocrity:
Once begun, the Qur’an took on a “life” of its own, because Muhammad saw how it magnified himself to a powerful position in front of his band of murderous robber followers. The Qur’an is also one uneducated man’s (Muhammad) feeble attempt to piece together Christian and Jewish theology. Throwing about pieces of his limited knowledge of what he learned about the Christian and Jewish religions provided Muhammad a way to elevate himself further in front of his listeners. Ample evidence suggests that before Muhammad began raping, murdering and pillaging for profit, he was viewed as a lunatic, especially by Jews, Christians, Medina and Mecca Arabs, and Hindus. The Jews professed disgust at a prophet whose chief concern was his harem of many wives. The majority of Jews, however, suffered Muhammad’s wrath when they refused to join his terrorist band of Muslims – mainly because the Jews could not reconcile their fundamental belief which is backed up in Scripture. That is, that God would never send a prophet who was a descendent of Ishmael instead of one from the line of Isaac. God had already made His choice to make a covenant with Isaac and his people.
During his early 13 years of preaching his message in Mecca, Muhammad was not driven toward violence. He was also in fact tolerant and cooperative; even in the face of boycotts by the Meccans against him and his new converts. After Muhammad moved to Medina, however, Muhammad turned into a violent, cruel, lustful and intolerant man, who personally led raids on innocent caravans. Beginning in Medina, Muhammad spread Islam militarily. Muhammad accompanied his terrorist army on 27 raids . Muhammad, the warrior non-prophet who made no prophecies, fought himself in 9 of these raids: Badr, al-Mustaliq, Hunayn, Uhud, al-Khandaq, Qurayza, Khaybar, al-Ta’if, and the occupation.
Muhammad’s early attempts to unite with Christians and Jews were not successful
Because Muhammad thought the “People of the Book” (Jews & Christians) also claimed allegiance to this same God he invented, Muhammad’s early recitations about Christianity and Judaism in the Qur’an were irenic (Tending to promote peace; conciliatory):
“O believers, be you God’s helpers, as Jesus, Mary’s son, said to the Apostles. ‘Who will be my helpers unto God?’ The Apostles said, ‘We will be helpers of God’ ” (Surah 61:14).
When Muhammad started preaching his new religion in Mecca he was conciliatory and appeasing to Christians. He told them: “We believe in What has been sent down to us and sent down to you, our God is the same as your God.” Surah 29:46. And in Surah 2:62 it says; “Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve. ”
Christians and Jews in Muhammad’s time treated Muhammad as a False Prophet:
Later, as Christians and Jews treated this self proclaimed prophet with sustain, recitations regarding the “People of the Book” (both Jews and Christians) became more belligerent:
Compare this with what happened later, in Medina, after Muhammad gained strength and Christians refused to follow Muhammad’s Allah. Allah then tells him to “Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day…Nor acknowledge the religion of truth (Islam), (even if they are) of the people of the Book, until they pay Jizya (tribute tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued”. Surah 9:29
“And the Jews say: Uzair (possibly Ezra) is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; ” (Surah 9:30); and
(The difficulty with Surah 9:30 above is with Uzair/Ezra, is the fact that no historical evidence can be adduced to prove that any Jewish sect, however heterodox, ever subscribed to such a tenet. What grounds were there for the accusation? It is probably a figment of Mohammed’s own imagination.)
“O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.” (Surah 5:51).
Are the following words what one might expect to hear from an all-knowing, benevolent deity? Or, are they the words one might expect from an Arab terrorist who needs to discipline his marauding troops today – and even in the 7th century (Muhammad)?
– Surah 5.38 “And (as for) the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands as a punishment for what they have earned, an exemplary punishment from Allah; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.”
Who is it that uses Islam to populate hell?
In his book, “Islam and Terrorism”, the former professor of Islamic history at Al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt (pen name: Mark A. Gabriel, PHD) says on Page 5-6: “Even the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, practiced his faith in many ways that contradicted the Quran. The Quran said that Muhammad was sent to show the mercy of God to the world. But he became a military dictator, attacking, killing and taking plunder to finance his empire. How is that showing mercy? Mark further writes: Allah, the god revealed in the Quran, is not a loving father. It says that he desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39, 126; 43:36-37). He does not help those who are led astray by him (Surah 30:29) and desires to use them to populate hell (Surah 32:13)”. So, the Qur’an says that the god of Islam works with Satan and demons to lead people astray.
Jesus is the “Good Shepherd”, and the God of love – who does not lead people astray.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18
The true Word of God needs to be infallible!
The Jewish and Christian Bible has been scrutinized and acknowledged to be without error by leading evangelical scholars over the centuries – as one would expect an inspired book from God to be.
The Koran was written 500 years after the Christian Bible was completed. If it too is truly an inspired book from God, it too should measure up to be as infallible as the Jewish and Christian Bible. If you expect the Koran to be as internally consistent and as factually correct as the Jewish and Christian Bible is – you are wrong. A few examples follow:
The Islamic Qur’an was edited
Today the Islamic Qur’an (Koran) is made up of 114 chapters called Suras and then sub-divided into verses. In the days of Muhammad’s wife A’isha, one chapter of the Koran (the Sura) had about 200 verses. Shortly after her death, this Surah had only 73 verses. Muslims say that 127 verses of the original text were lost and never found. Also, After the sudden death of Muhammad, Zaid-ibn-Thabith was ordered to compile and write down the Qur’an (Mishkat’ul Masabih). It is attested that at least three revelations were left out. One of these, according to Muhammad’s wife, A’isha, with whom he resided at this death, was kept under their bed at the time of Muhammad’s death, but was eaten by a domestic animal (a goat). When Uthman compiled the Qur’an, the missing verses could not be found. One of them was called the verse of Stoning, and is said to have containestoned the order to stone a man or woman who had committed adultery….This verse is said to have been part of the original Qur’an. Many early authorities say so, and what is very significant is that the first Caliphs punished adulterers by stoning; this is still the penalty prescribed in Muslim law-books, whereas the Qur’an (Surah 24:2) prescribed a hundred stripes.” (“Islam” by A. Guillaume, p. 191). References: Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal. vol. 6. page 269; Sunan Ibn Majah, page 626; Ibn Qutbah, Tawil Mukhtalafi ‘l-Hadith (Cairo: Maktaba al-Kulliyat al-Azhariyya. 1966) page 310; As-Suyuti, ad-Durru ‘l-Manthur, vol. 2. page 13:
Another tradition states (Sahih Muslim, page 912, Mishkat II, page 534 and others):
“Umar said: ‘Verily Allah sent Muhammad with truth and revealed the Book to him. Out of the verses, the Almighty Allah revealed. there was the verse of stoning to death. The Messenger of Allah stoned to death (Sahih Muslim, page 920) and after him we also stoned to death: And in the BOOK OF GOD stoning to death is a truth against one, who commits adultery. The verse was thus: ‘The old man and the old woman, if they have committed adultery, they stoned them both assuredly.’ ”
This passage too, is not in the Qur’an. See other corruptions of the Qur’an here.
Many Hadith, including Sahih Bukhari give proof that Stoning was ordered and practiced by Muhammed, for example:
Ayatollah Khomeini, an Iranian “butcher” gives us a clear insight into what awaits countries who fall to Islam’s satanic grasp:
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini explains what happens when these murderous mullah’s take over:
According to Khomeini:
“Killing is a form of mercy because it rectifies the person. Sometimes a person cannot be reformed unless he is cut up and burned. You must kill, burn and lock up those in opposition.”
Here is a real example of what the Muslim head “stoner” says to begin the ghastly “festivities:
“We have all gathered here to implement divine punishments. Oh, Almighty, we plead with you to give victory to Islam and Muslims.”
The Qur’an talks only about scourging and exiling the adulterer, yet Muhammad himself stoned some adulterers. Thus, stoning the married adulterer (male or female) and not flogging them, has become Islamic law. The reason for that is that Muhammad said and did so.
Under Iran’s brutal Islamic Sharia Laws, women usually get stoned for crimes against chastity. While men who even murder someone in a fit of rage in these cases, usually get only a few years in jail.
Under Iran’s strict Sharia law, women sentenced to execution by stoning have their hands bound behind their back. They are wrapped from head to toe in sheets before being seated in a pit. The ditch is filled up to their breasts with dirt, and the soil is packed tightly before people assemble to execute the woman by pitching rocks at her head and upper body.
Article 104 of the Iranian Penal Code states that the stones used for execution should “not be large enough to kill the person by one or two strikes, nor should they be so small that they could not be defined as stones.”
Ironically, the court sentenced the woman’s brother Abu Bakr Ghorbany and husband Mohammad Daneshfar to only six years in jail for killing her lover. According to Sharia law, murder carries a lesser penalty than “crimes against chastity.”
Benevolence and Forgiveness?
One time a woman was brought to Muhammad who had committed adultery. They asked him, “What shall we do with her? Muhammad said, “Go away. Bring her back after the baby is born.” So they brought her back after the baby was born, and Muhammad said, “Let her go and nurse the child. Bring her back when the child is two years old.” So they brought her back, and Muhammad said, “Take the baby from her and kill her.” And that is what they did. Reference: “Islam and Terrorism”, Page 203-204
Islam has always been strong on “forced conversions”, especially via terror and the sword:
“When Muhammad and his followers were about to attack Mecca to subjugate it to Islam, his adherents arrested Abu Sufyan, one of Mecca’s inhabitants. They brought him to Muhammad. Muhammad told him: “Woe to you, O Abu Sufyan. Is it not time for you to realize that there is no God but the only God?” Abu Sufyan answered: “I do believe that.” Muhammad then said to him: “Woe to you, O Abu Sufyan. Is it not time for you to know that I am the apostle of God?” Abu Sufyan answered: “By God, O Muhammad, of this there is doubt in my soul.” The ‘Abbas who was present with Muhammad told Abu Sufyan: “Woe to you! Accept Islam and testify that Muhammad is the apostle of God before your neck is cut off by the sword.” Thus he professed the faith of Islam and became a Muslim.” (Ibn Hisham, “The Biography of Muhammad” (Part 4, Page 11). This man, Abu Sufyan, was not a believer at first, but he quickly “believed” after he was threatened by death.’ Contrast this with Christianity, which rejects the testimony of the mouth if it does not stem from faith that is rooted in the heart first.
Contrast the above to what Jesus said about stoning and adultery:
According to the Gospel of John, the Jewish Priests (Pharisees), in an attempt to discredit Jesus, brought a woman charged with adultery before him. The Pharisees reminded Jesus that adultery was punishable by stoning under Law of Moses and challenged Jesus to judge the woman so that they might then accuse him of disobeying the law. Jesus thought for a moment and then replied, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.” The people crowded around him were so touched by their own consciences that they departed. When Jesus found himself alone with the woman, he asked her who were her accusers. She replied, “No man, lord.” Jesus then said, “Neither do I condemn thee: go and sin no more.”
The hypocrites who had been blinded to their own sin were judged first. It was their own consciences that caused them to depart from Jesus’ company! The accused remained in Jesus’ company and no doubt was sorry for her sin. She received forgiveness of her sins from Jesus who has the power to do this! The others wandered away in shame.

The Stoning of Soraya M. by Freidoune Sahebjam
When a woman is accused by her husband – rightly or wrongly – of infidelity, she is no longer considered human. This is the true story of an innocent woman stoned to death in modern Iran. Soraya M.’s husband Ghorban-Ali, was a shiftless, ambitious man, prone to rages and dreams of wealth. He wanted to get out of his marriage. When Soraya began cooking for the widowed husband of a friend, he found his excuse. Abetted by village authorities and aided by Islamic law, he accused his wife of adultery. Soraya M. – rendered mute by the injustice of the accusations, exhausted by her husband’s constant abuse and her grinding daily routine – said nothing in her defense, and her silence was taken as guilt. Perhaps, too, she knew that her protests would not be heard. She was taken away, buried up to her shoulders and neck in the ground, and then stoned to death. Day by day, hour by hour, the author re-creates Soraya’s unbearable ordeal, providing the reader with an eyewitness account of a terrible miscarriage of justice, so typical within Islam.
This shows how Muhammad made it up as he went along:
The canonical traditionists report that Surah 4:95 was dictated by Muhammad to his amanuensis Zayd (Zaid) thus: ‘Those believers who sit at home are not equal to those who fight in the way of God with their goods and their persons.’ A blind man was present and heard the words. He immediately interjected that were he as other men he would certainly fight; whereupon Muhammad interposed the words ‘except those who suffer from a grave impediment’ which stand in the text today.” (“Islam” by A. Guillaume, p.191).
Before an authorized version of the Qur’an (Koran) was established under the Caliph Uthman there were four rival editions in use. These have long since disappeared, but we are told that they differed from the authorized version, some containing more and some less than the latter.
When men who had learned one version came into conflict with those who possessed a rival version it was feared that scriptural exegesis (i.e. critical explanation or analysis) would pursue the course it had taken among Jews and Christians who at that time accused one another of corrupting and falsifying the sacred text. Uthman then entrusted a commission, in which Zayd took a prominent place, with the task of preparing a text which everyone must accept. Only the men of Kufa refused the new edition, and their version was certainly extant as late as A.D. 1000. Uthman’s edition to this day remains the authoritative word of their God to Muslims. The Uthman collection tradition poses a difficult question: which Qur’an tradition is the more authentic, 1. the Hijazi tradition represented in the universally acknowledged text; 2. the Kufan tradition claiming descent from Abdullah ibn Mas’ud; 3. the Basran stemming from Abu Musa; or 4. the Syrian from Ubayy ibn Ka’b one of the scribes of Muhammad (or from Miqdad/? Mu’ad)?
Differing readings of the Qur’an were known to Muhammad and he lacked the pedantry to object. More fickleness — more making it up as he went along.
“Ubayy entered the mosque and, hearing a man recite, asked him who had instructed him. The man replied that he had been taught by the Prophet. Ubayy went in search of the Prophet. When the man recited. Muhammad said, ‘That is correct.’ Ubayy protested, ‘But you taught me to recite so-and-so,’ The Prophet said that Ubayy was right too. ‘Right? right?’ burst out Ubayy in perplexity. The Prophet struck him on the chest and prayed, ‘O God! cause doubt to depart.’ Ubayy broke into a sweat as his heart filled with terror. Muhammad disclosed that two angels had come to him. One said, ‘Recite the Qur’an in one form.’ The other advised Muhammad to ask for more than this. That was repeated several times until finally the first angel said. ‘Very well. Recite it in seven forms.’ The Prophet said, ‘Each of the forms is grace-giving, protecting, so long as you don’t terminate a punishment verse with an expression of mercy, or vice-versa – as you might for example say, Let’s go; or, let’s be off.’ ” (Tafsir of Tabari.).
“A man complained to the Prophet, Abdullah taught me to recite a Surah of the Qur’an. Zaid taught me the same Surah and so too did Ubayy. The readings of all three differ. Whose reading ought I to adopt?’ Muhammad remained silent. Ali who was at his side replied, ‘Every man should recite as he was taught. Each of the readings is acceptable, valid.’ ” (Tafsir of Tabari).
“Umar said, I heard Hisam b. Hukaim reciting Surat al Furqan and listened to his recital. On observing that he was reading many forms which the Prophet had not taught me, I all but rushed upon him as he prayed. But I waited patiently as he continued, and, collaring him when he had finished, I asked him, ‘Who taught you to recite this Sura?’ He claimed that the Prophet had taught him. I said, ‘By God! you’re lying!’ I dragged him to the Prophet telling him that I had heard Hisam recite many forms he had not taught me. The Prophet said, ‘Let him go. Recite, Hisam.’ He recited the reading I had already heard from him. The Prophet said, ‘That is how it was revealed.’ He then said, ‘Recite, Umar’, and I recited what he had taught me. He said, ‘That’s right. That is how it was revealed. This Qur’an was revealed in seven forms, so recite what is easiest.’ “(Tafsir of Tabari). (See also Mishkat vol.III pp. 702-705). Also, Al Baizawi (in his commentary on Suras 3:100, 6:91, 19:35, 28:48, 33:6, 34:18, 38:22, etc.) suggests variations extant in his time. (Mizanu’l Haqq, page 261).
Scientific blunders in the Qur’an (Koran):
The Qur’an claims to be free from internal discrepancies. “Will they not then ponder on the Qur’an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity.” (Noble Qur’an Surah 4:82) Surely, nothing less than perfect is expected from God. But, let’s go on a journey through the Qur’an and peek at the evidence against this claim.
Islamic scholars in Egypt and Saudi Arabia agree with Muhammad, that lightning and thunder are two angels. Muhammad, the prophet of Muslims, claims that the thunder and the lightning are two of God’s angels—exactly like Gabriel! Baydawi comments on verse 13 of the chapter of the Thunder in the Qur’an:
“Ibn Abbas asked the apostle of God about the thunder. He told him, ‘It is an angel who is in charge of the cloud, who (carries) with him swindles of fire by which he drives the clouds.”’
The Qur’an teaches that the world is flat. This doctrine is believed by a great many Islamic scholars even today. The Jewish/Christian Bible revealed that the earth is round in Isaiah 40:22 and via Job (26:7). Speaking of God in Isaiah 40:22, the Jewish/Christian Bible says; “It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. Funny isn’t it, that the Bible said the earth was a “circle”, even when everyone believed the earth was flat”. Job 26:7 says, “He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing”.
– In many places, the Qur’an alludes to the fact that the earth is flat and its mountains are like poles which create a balance so that the Earth does not tilt. See Qur’an, Suras 79:30 (And the Earth after that He(Allah) FLATTENED it.; and 18:47 (and you will see the earth a leveled plain).
Qur’an Surah 79:30 says:
Wa Al-Arda bada Zalika DaHaaHaa, which means:
And the Earth after that He (Allah) FLATTENED it.
With regards to Surah 79:30, ” Dahaahaa ” does NOT mean ” shape like an egg “. It is appalling that some dishonest Muslim apologists actually have the audacity to dishonestly cheat non-Arabic speakers to such an extent. So if concisely translated, Surah 79:30 should read as “And the Earth after that He (Allah) Spread out like a carpet and Flattened it.”
The Arabic word for egg is ” Baidah ” and NOT ” Dahiyah ” . There is NO such Arabic word as ” Dahiyah “. ” “Dahaahaa ” actually means ” FLATTEN “. And the concise meaning of “Dahaahaa” is “Spread out like a carpet and Flattened”. This points to a clear scientific error in the Quran. The word “Dahiyah” is a word that comes from one of the NON-Arab tribes of North Africa. It is definitely NOT an Arabic word and NOT a word that comes from the Arabian Peninsula or Muhammad’s tribe.
Surah 10:5 says
Huwa Al-Ladh? Ja`ala Ash-Shamsa ?iy?’an Wa Al-Qamara NURon Wa Qaddarahu Man?zila Lita`lam? `Adada As-Sin?na Wa Al-?is?ba M? Khalaqa All?hu Dh?lika ‘Ill? Bil-?aqqi Yufa??ilu Al-‘?y?ti Liqawmin Ya`lam?na which means “It is He Who made the sun to be a shining brightness and THE MOON TO BE A LIGHT, and measured out stages for her; that you might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did Allah create this but in truth. (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand.”
The Arabic word “Qamara” means “Moon” and “NUR” means “LIGHT”. “Al-Qamara” means “The Moon”.
Surah 10:5 CLEARLY says ALLAH MADE THE MOON A LIGHT.
The word “NUR” means “Light” and it does NOT AT ALL mean “reflected light”. Anyone who knows Arabic knows that. If it does, then in the Arabic text of Surah 24:35, Allah is himself a reflected light ! Is any muslim apologist willing to accept such an insult, degradation and blasphemy to Allah ?? Also, if as according to the LIES of muslim apologists, “NUR” means “reflected light” which it does NOT, then in the Arabic text, Surahs 2:257, 4:174, 5:16, 5:46, 6:1, 6:122, 7:157, 9:32, 33:43, 33:46, 35:25, 42:52, 57:9, 61:8, 64:8 make absolutely no sense at all and make the already absurd Qur’an even more absurd, ridiculous and erroneous.
Surah 10:5 is a clear scientific MISTAKE in the light of modern science. The moon is NOT a light and does NOT give out its own light ! The moon reflects light from the sun. Of course, the Qur’an does not mention this at all because Muhammad did not know this.

– The Qur’an teaches that the sun sets into a Muddy Spring on earth. According to Surah 18:86, the sun literally sets into a muddy spring or a black sea here on Earth, and Surah 18:90 mentions a specific place on Earth where the sun rises. Many Muslims try and say about this absurdity “oh this is poetic”. Nice try, it cannot be dismissed as figurative language or poetic, because it is given as part of an historical narrative.
The Qur’an says that one of the righteous men of God’s servants saw the sun set in a certain place of the earth—in particular a well full of water and mud. There, this man found some people. Let us read what is recorded in the Qur’an (chapter “the Cave”, Surah 18 verse 86). “Until when he reached the place where the sun set, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people. We said: O Zulqarnain! either give them a chastisement or do them a benefit. “.
Zamakhshari remarks in his book, “the Kash-shaf”,
“Abu Dharr (one of Muhammad’s close companions) was with Muhammad during the sunset. Muhammad asked him: ‘Do you know, O Abu Dharr where this sets?’ He answered: ‘God and His apostle know better.’ Muhammad said: ‘It sets in a spring of slimy water”’ (3rd Edition, Volume 2 p. 743,1987).
In his book, “The Lights of Revelation” (p. 399), the Baydawi indicates, “The sun sets in a slimy spring; that is, a well which contains mud.
Why were stars created? In Surah 67:5 we read that the stars were created to be thrown at devils (Shaitans).
The real “Book” is factual…The Bible is an anvil on which many hammers have been broken. However, its enemies never tire of attempting to make some impression on it.
The Jewish-Christian Bible is a journal-like record of creation, including of the earths initial conditions. It is obvious that only the Bible is both supernaturally accurate and inspired. The Bible correctly describes creation from the standpoint of astrophysics and geophysics. It also summarizes the sequence of changes through which the Earth came to be inhabited by fallen angels, living things (dinosaurs and the like), and ultimately by humans. The Bibles’ order and its description of creation perfectly matches established records of nature. God’s direction to Joshua and Israel to wipe out tribes already present in Israel was due to God’s great love for humanity. Fallen angels had mixed with women and created a perverted race, many of whom were giants. God simply desired that this mixed half human/half fallen angel gene pool be weeded out from the human genes.
God walks in many dimensions:
Hebrews 11:3 speaks of a transcendent creation (from beyond our known dimension) when it states that the universe that we humans can measure and detect was made from that which we cannot measure or detect. At least 12 verses in the Bible makes a claim that the universe is being “stretched out”, or expanding – which one would expect were there a “Big Bang” creation. Job 9:8, Isaiah 44:24 and 45:12 repeatedly say that it is God alone who is responsible for this cosmic “stretching”. The Bible also holds the formula for “Pi”, and more. See here.
If the Qur’an is a true miracle of God – why is it so muddled with historical, scientific and other errors, including simple math? Wouldn’t we expect an all-knowing Allah to be better student of history, science and math? If there is but one error in the Qur’an, how can it be inspired by God?
Muhammad had obviously heard some Bible stories, but he seems to have got them confused and mixed up when it came out in his prophetic utterances. It is quite apparent that the Qur’an is simply the product of hearsay and imperfect editing from a plurality of traditions then known to Muhammad.
When Muhammad was growing up, there existed two heretic branches of Christianity in Arabia which many arabs embraced. These were the Ebionite and Nestorian branches. Muhammad’s first wife’s (Khadija) cousin, Waraga bin Neufel was a pastor of the Ebionite Church in Mecca. Both of these branches falsely taught that Jesus Christ was not divine. This heretic pastor actually performed the marriage of Muhammad to Khadija. Also, many reports indicate only the Gospel of Matthew was translated into Arabic during this time. This information is given to show you where the human Muhammad got his false teachings about Jesus, the Trinity, and Christianity.
The stories in the Qur’an relating to events described in the Bible contradict the Bible in many points. It is quite apparent that Muhammad took much of what he taught from the Samaritan Pentateuch and the Psalms. Muhammad shows no knowledge of their prophetic or historical writings, however.
The formula “There is no God but the One” is an often recurring refrain in Samaritan liturgies. The similarity of the Muslim proclamation “There is no God but Allah” is very interesting. Also of note the opening chapter of the Qur’an is known as the Fatiha (meaning opening, or gate). The Samaritan’s also have a prayer which is also considered a succinct confession of faith that begins with the words: “Amadti kamekha al fatah rahmekha”. This means “I stand before thee at the gate of thy mercy”. The Samaritan word for the opening or gate is “fatah”.
In Surah 18:10-27 we see that Muhammad regurgitated the early Christian Rip Van Winkle-like myth/legend historians know as the “Seven Sleepers of Ephesus” from around the 250’s AD. This is a legend about 7 noble Christian youths who took refuse in a cave while fleeing persecution during the rein of the Roman Emperor Decius. Their lives were miraculously saved because they fell into a deep sleep for almost 200 years. Typical of Muhammad’s inattention to any literary or historical detail, Muhammad’s Surah has them sleeping for 300-309 years. Surah 18:25 – So they stayed in their Cave three hundred years, and (some) add nine (more).
Behold, the youths betook themselves to the Cave: they said, “Our Lord! bestow on us Mercy from Thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way!” Then We draw (a veil) over their ears, for a number of years, in the Cave, (so that they heard not):… Surah 18:10-11
Historical errors in the Qur’an:
The Historical, Scientific, simple mathematics and theological contradictions in the Qur’an are too numerous to list. Remember, since Muhammad already proclaimed the Jewish Torah/ Christian Old Testament (Taurat) as correct in Qur’an Suras 2:87, 3:48, 3:50, 5:44, 5:46; 5.68, 6:154, 6:155, 29:46, 32:23, 43:63, 46:12, then the following gross errors that differ with the Torah and Christian Gospels are inexcusable.
These errors their selves scream out the Qur’an itself is entirely false.
We have noted newer English translations of the Qur’an popping up on the internet which are deceitfully attempting to cover up many of the errors cited below. Double check with your older Qur’ans–you’ll see. The world is aware that the Qur’an is made up of 114 chapters (suras), made up of 30 parts, 6,616 verses (ayas), 77,943 words, and 338,606 letters. So consider this as you try and fine tune it to rid it of errors.
In Suras 2:87, 3:50, 5:44, 5:46 and 29:46 we are told that Muhammad is given the Qur’an as a confirmation of the Jewish/Christian Bible; that is – it is meant to prove the bible’s authenticity…. In Surah 46:12 we are told…. “And before it the Book of Musa (Moses) was a guide and a mercy: and this is a Book verifying (it) in the Arabic language……”
Yet the historical, scientific, and simple math errors in the Qur’an that differ from the Jewish/Christian Bibles it already confirmed are utterly careless, foolish and devoid of any touch of divinity, as you will see. Also, disturbing about the Qur’an is that it makes no attempt at linear history. The Qur’an appears thrown together half hazardly with nological sequence, except only the largest Sura’s are in the beginning. Whereas the Jewish Pentateuch (1st 5 books of Jewish Bible) is a continuous narrative from the beginning of the world until the Hebrews enter the Promised Land.
Never fully trust any one English or other non-Arabic translation of the Qur’an. Muslim apologists are fond of taking advantage of non-Arabs’ ignorance of the Arabic language to fool people. In the Arabic text, many verses of the Quran are very harsh, very illogical, very bloodthirsty and very scientifically erroneous. Therefore, trust the translations that are more harsh, more illogical, more bloodthirsty and more scientifically erroneous; because these are the more honest translations. Something Muslims will not tell you is that the Arabic language is not all that “pure”. Syriac words occur in the Qur’an, like masih (Messiah) in Surah 3:45, furgan (salvation) in Surah 2:50, and istabrag (silk brocade) in Surah 76:21 (1988, Shorrosh, page 199)
Muhammad probably never knew the true name of God:
In the Torah/Old Testament, which the Qur’an claims above to support – God gives us another condition a true prophet must meet. A true prophet must prophesy in the name of the one true God. He must use Gods unique name. Gods unique name in the bible is YHWH (pronounced Yaweh) and is mentioned 6,823 times in the Bible. Muhammad never used Gods real name even once, suggesting he never knew it. Muhammad also seems to have not known He also told the Hebrews to call Him “I Am”.
Here are just a few notable errors in the Qur’an:
– In Surah 2:249 Muhammad confuses the persons of Saul (Talut) and Gideon. See: Judges 7:4-7
– In Surah 26:54 the Israelites were said to be “a scanty band” (small band); vastly inferior to the Egyptians. But in Exodus 1:7-10 the Egyptian king said to his people that the Israelites had become “more and mightier than we”. Exodus 1:9 speaks of the Hebrews as multitudes.
– The Koran confused the sister of Moses by implication (Miriam) with Mary, the mother of Jesus 3 times. And Muhammad seemed to think that Jesus was Moses’ nephew, the son of Moses’ sister Mariam. Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Miriam the sister of Moses actually lived about 1500 years apart. The entire Chapter 19 is devoted to Mary (Maryam) the mother of Jesus in the Qur’an. Surah 19:28, “O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!” Surah 66.12 calls Mary ‘daughter of lmran”. lmran is the Arabic form of the Hebrew Amram mentioned in Numbers 26.59 as the father of “Aaron, Moses and Miriam.” The title “sister of Aaron” is given to Miriam in Exodus 15.20. Surah 3.35-36, The wife of Amram said, “My Lord, I have dedicated (the baby) in my belly to You, totally, so accept from me. You are Hearer, Omniscient.”
– How many angels were talking to Mary? When the Qur’an speaks about the annunciation of the birth of Jesus to the virgin Mary, Surah 3:42,45 speaks about angels (plural) while it is only one in Surah 19:17-21. The Christian Bible clearly indicated one angel; “In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth,” Luke 1:26
– Jesus taught people even in his “old age”. (Surah 5:110). Actually Jesus ascended into Heaven while in His mid 30’s.
– Do you remember the evil Persian Haman who conspired to kill all the Jews during the time of Esther in the Babylonian captivity (about 500 BC). In the Koran, Muhammad incorrectly taught that this wicked man Haman was the prime minister of the Egyptian Pharaoh (Firon) in Moses’ time (1450 BC). See Suras 28:4-6, 28:38-39, 29:39, 40:23-24,and 40:36-37. Throughout the Qur’an–Nimrod and Abraham, Haman and Moses, Mary and Aaron, the tower of Babel (2500 BC) and Pharaoh were all pictured as living and working together. Moses and the flood are also incorrectly found together. Muhammad thought these all happened at the same time. Muhammad was always mixing people together in the Qur’an who did not live at the same time. See Suras 21:51-76; and 29:15-16. See this historical fumbling below…
Muhammad additionally confuses the Tower of Babel in this rant, found in Suras 28:38-39 and 40:36-37:
And Pharaoh said: O Chiefs! I know not what ye have a god other than me, so kindle for me (a fire), O Haman, to bake the mud; and set up for me a lofty tower in order that I may survey the god of Moses; and lo! I deem him of the liars. And he and his hosts were haughty in the land without right, and deemed that they would never be brought back to Us (Surah 28:38-39) And Pharaoh said: O Haman! Build me a tower that haply I may reach the roads, the roads of the heavens, and may look upon the God of Moses, though verily I think him a liar. Thus was the evil that he did made fair – seeming unto Pharaoh, and he was debarred from the (right) way. The plot of Pharaoh ended but in ruin (Surah 40:36-37)
Reference:The Quran Unveiled, page 133
– What about Noah’s (Nuh) son? According to Surah 21:76, Noah and his family is saved from the flood, and Suras 29:15 and 37:76-77 confirms that his seed survived. But Surah 11:42-43 reports that Noah’s son drowns.
– Surah 7:59 and 7:136 say Noah’s flood took place in Moses’ day. Did anyone tell Moses that?
– Surah 14:37, says Abraham lived in the valley of Mecca (Muslim Sacred House). The Bible says he lived in Hebron, Israel. (Genesis 13:18, 23:2, 35:27)
-Surah 2:61 In this beauty, Moses is being told about the prophets who were killed in Moses’ day. Yet there were no prophets killed during Moses’ time. Moses was the first prophet.
(Noble Qur’an) PICKTHAL: And when ye said: O Moses! We are weary of one kind of food; so call upon thy Lord for us that He bring forth for us of that which the earth groweth – of its herbs and its cucumbers and its corn and its lentils and its onions. He said: Would ye exchange that which is higher for that which is lower? Go down to settled country, thus ye shall get that which ye demand. And humiliation and wretchedness were stamped upon them and they were visited with wrath from Allah. That was because they disbelieved in Allah’s revelations and slew the prophets wrongfully. That was for their disobedience and transgression.
– Surah 9:30 mistakenly claims that the Jews believed that Ezra was the Son of God, the Messiah, just as Christians claim for Jesus. No Jews have ever believed this.
– Surah 6:74, says Abraham father’s name was Azar. The Bible says it was Terah (Genesis 11:27). How can Muhammad claim he verified the Torah which came first as true, yet differ with the facts in the Torah?
– Surah 9:10 says Zakarias was mute for only 3 days. The Bible says Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, was made mute because of his unbelief concerning Gabriel’s prophecy of John’s birth. He would remain mute until the baby was born (Luke 1:20), which is roughly nine months.
Islam says it was Ishmael that was nearly sacrificed on the mountain rather than Isaac as both the Torah and Christian Gospels say. Islam says that Hagar was the legitimate wife (and not a concubine) of Abraham, rather than Sarah; so Ishmael was the heir of Abraham. But wait! Muhammad had already attested to the Bible and Torah as being correct. Then why these huge errors? Of note: After Muhammad’s death, the Meccans (Waraquah) changed the name Isaac in Suras 2:125 and 127 for the name Ishmael and invented the story about Abraham taking Ishmael to their black rock in Mecca, so that pilgrims would continue to visit Mecca.
– Surah 5:72, The Quran falsely teaches that Jesus is not the Messiah. The Holy Injeel says He is.
Muhammad never understood the Trinity (Father / Son / Holy Spirit):
Surah 116, 4:171, 5:73-75, Muhammad mistakenly thought the Christian Trinity was 3 gods: the Father, the Mother (Mary), and the Son (Jesus). This is based on Muhammad’s own misunderstanding seen in Surah 5:119. Also, in the last of all Suras we read: O Jesus, Son of Mary, hast thou said unto mankind ‘Take me and my mother as two Gods beside God? ‘ He shall say: ‘Glory be unto Thee! it is not for me to say that which I know to be not the truth.’ There is no way for Muslims today to escape the fact that the Koran indeed contains this major theological blunder. The Bible, shows that there is a Trinity (Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7).
To make things far worse for Islam. In the Qur’an where Allah speaks, he says “We”, “Us”, Our” over 100 times!… Showing again and again that God is not a single person, but several persons in one divine being:
To get a clearer idea of the Christian Concept of the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) read this real Near Death Experience Testimony here and here. It shows that Jesus’ light is one and the same as the Father’s. And that only Jesus is our mediator with the Father. All (Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindu, etc) have sinned. So all require a mediator.
– Suras 7:8–9 and 21:47 teach Muslims that salvation is determined by good Works. Masons also teach this erroneous and very harmful theology. The Gospel of Jesus is adamant that we are saved by Faith alone, and not by works (Ephesians 2:8–9). Granted, the Bible says we must do a few things to obtain salvation, like repent (Acts 2:38), confess Jesus (Romans 10:10), and be baptized (Acts 2:38), but it is our continuing faith in Jesus as our only mediator that saves us. That is not to say we need not have works at all—we must have works to back up our faith (James 2:26). Nevertheless, we are not saved by our works, but by our faith and the grace of the Lord Jesus.
– Surah 28:8-9, says is was Pharaoh’s wife who adopted Moses. The Bible says it was Pharaoh’s daughter in Exodus 2:5-10.
– Paradise has one garden. (Surah 39:73, 41:30, 57:21, 79:41). Paradise has many gardens. (Surah 18:31, 22:23, 35:33, 78:32).
Even the name for Jesus in the Qur’an is incorrect. The name for Jesus in the Qur’an is given as “Issa.” Issa is the Arabic equivalent of Esau, the name for the twin brother of Jacob. The correct Arabic name for Jesus would be Yeshua or Yeshuwa.
The names “Jesus and John” were among the most common names in Israel at the time of Jesus the Messiah. The name John was quite common in ancient Israel. Yet speaking of John the Baptist, a contemporary of Jesus, the Qur’an says in Surah 19:7 that the name John (Yahya) was not previously given. But In the biblical book of Ezra dating from a far earlier time than John the Baptist, we read; “And of the sons of Azgad; Johanan (John) the son of Hakkatan”. The name John is also mentioned earlier than John the Baptist in: 2 Kings 25:23, and Jeremiah 40:8.
– Surah 20:83–89 tells us that a Samaritan (Samiri) made the golden calf for Israel while Moses was receiving the law. There are two problems with this: One, the Bible says it was Aaron (Exodus 32:1–4), and two, Samaritans didn’t exist yet until after 870 BC (1 Kings 16:24). Samaria was founded by King Omri in about 870 B.C. (see 1 Kings 16:24). But “the Samaritans” as a distinct people only emerged after the exile of the Northern kingdom of Israel and the resettlement of the area under king Sargon II in after 722 B.C. The Exodus happened much earlier in about 1300-1400 BC.
– Pharaoh drowned. (Surah 17:103, 28:40, 43:55-56). Pharaoh did not drown. (Surah 10:91-93).
(Noble Qur’an, Surah 17:103) speaking of Pharaoh Pickthal says; “And he wished to scare them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him, all together”. (Noble Qur’an, Surah 10:92) speaking of Pharaoh Pickthal says; “But this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayst be a portent for those after thee. Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents.”
Muhammad made up historical references for the Kabah (Kaba/Ka’bah). The Qur’an says the Kabah in Mecca was built by Adam and rebuilt by Abraham. Actually it was was built by pagan Meccans to worship a black rock that fell out of the sky. Abraham never lived in Mecca according to the Torah. The late Taha Hussein, one of the most famous Egyptian professors of Arabic literature said that the Islamic myth of Abraham building the Kaba came into vogue just before the rise of Islam. He comments:
“The case of this episode is very obvious because it is of recent date, and came into vogue just before the rise of Islam. Islam exploited it for religious reasons”. Quoted in ‘Mizar al-Islam’ by Anwar al-Jundi. Here are two “beauties”:
– Surah 18:85,86, says that Alexander the Great (Zul-qarinain) followed the setting sun and found that it went down into the waters of a muddy spring. Surah 18:89-98 says the Greek Alexander the Great was a Muslim and worshipped Allah. Actually, Alexander the Great died very young and was by no means a Muslim. Alexander the Great lived from 356 – 323 B.C. (Before Jesus). He was 33 years old when he died. Muhammad and Islam did not come along till 610 A.D. (after Jesus), when Muhammad began preaching Allah and his new religion in Mecca. This was over 900 years after Alexander the Great died. Yusuf Ali and the Concise Dictionary of Islam confirm that Zul-qarinain in the Quran is Alexander the Great.
The Qur’an also incorrectly says in Surah 105:3-4 that Abrah’s army was defeated by birds dropping stones on them. History (Guillame, Islam, pgs.21ff) says Abrah’s army withdrew after smallpox broke out.
Other notable errors in the Qur’an:
Flip Flops: The origin of calamity? Is the evil in our life from Satan [Surah 38:41]; Ourselves [Surah 4:79]; or Allah [Surah 4:78]? Can slander of chaste women be forgiven? Yes [Surah 24:5], No [Surah 24:23].
Abrogation? “The words of the Lord are perfect in truth and justice; there is NONE who can change His words” (Surah 6:115). Also see Suras 6:34, 10:64, and 50:28,29. But then Allah (or Muhammad?) sees the need to exchange some of them for “better ones” (Suras 2:106, 16:101). And it is not for ignorant people to question Allah because of such practices! Let us Reason. How can a divine revelation be improved upon? If divine, would it not have been perfect from the start?
Suras 6:34, 6:115, 10:64 and 50:28,29 clearly says to Muslims, “No change can there be in the words of Allah” and that Allah cannot alter (or abrogate) his words.” So the Torah and Christian Gospels are correct, because Allah did verify this fact — this clearly makes the Muslim Qur’an is false; because it contradicts Allah.
– Consider the change of amount of days creation took, first from 6 days (Suras 7:54, 10:3, 11:7, and 25:59) and then it gets changed to 8 days (Suras 41:9-12). Is someone not playing with a full deck?
– Allah can have a son. (Surah 39:4). Allah can’t have a son. (Surah 6:101, and 25:2).
– All angels obey Allah. (Surah 16:49-50). Not all angels obey Allah. (Surah 2:34)
– In Surah 19:19-22, the human Mary was told she would have an “immaculate conception,” or be impregnated by Allah. Yet, Surah 6:100-101 denies that Allah could have a son or daughter through mortals.
– Face Mecca while praying. (Surah 2:144). Face Jerusalem while praying. Originally Muhammad instructed Muslims to face Jerusalem when praying; probably because Solomon established the practice of praying while facing Jerusalem (1 Kings 8:29, 30, 44; 2 Chronicles 6:21; Daniel 6:10). Apparently, Muhammad believed at first that God wanted him to pray facing Jerusalem and he did so for nearly 16-17 months – at least while he thought the he could convert the Jews to his religion. However, later, when the Jews rebuffed him Muhammad preferred to pray towards the Ka’ba in Mecca which, during this point in time, contained 360 idols.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 392:
Narrated Bara’ bin ‘Azib:
Allah’s Apostle prayed facing Baitul-Maqdis for sixteen or seventeen months but he loved to face the Ka’ba (at Mecca) so Allah revealed: “Verily, We have seen the turning of your face to the heaven!” (2:144) So the Prophet faced the Ka’ba and the fools amongst the people namely “the Jews” said, “What has turned them from their Qibla (Bait-ul-Maqdis) which they formerly observed“” (Allah revealed): “Say: ‘To Allah belongs the East and the West. He guides whom he will to a straight path’.” (2:142) A man prayed with the Prophet (facing the Ka’ba) and went out. He saw some of the Ansar praying the ‘Asr prayer with their faces towards Bait-ul-Maqdis, he said, “I bear witness that I prayed with Allah’s Apostle facing the Ka’ba.” So all the people turned their faces towards the Ka’ba.
– Is Jesus a Prophet or not? Will Jesus burn in hell? In Surah 4:158 Jesus is raised to Allah, and in Surah 3:45 Jesus is stationed near Allah. Jesus is worshiped by billions of Christians. Yet Surah 21:98 says, that all that are worshiped by men besides Allah will burn in Hell together with those who worship them. Or, is Jesus Allah, the same substance with the Father?
– Did Jesus Die or Not? Surah 3:144 is quite adamant that all messengers died before Muhammad. But then Surah 4:158 claims that Jesus was raised to God (alive?) and 4:157 falsely says Jesus did not die.
– In Surah 4:157 we read that Jesus certainly did not die, yet in Surah 19:33 we read that not only did he die, but he arose again! 19:33 reads about Jesus: “And peace be upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day I get resurrected.”
– What is the punishment for adultery? Surah 24:2 -Flogging with a 100 stripes (men and women); Surah 4:15 -“confine them to houses until death do claim them (lifelong house arrest – for the women); Surah 4:16 – For men: “If they repent and amend, leave them alone”. Surah 24:2 contradicts both the procedure for women and men in Surah 4:15. And why is the punishment for women and men equal in Surah 24.2 but different in Surah 4:15?
– In Surah 19:67, “But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing?.” In Surah 15:26, man is created from clay (We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape;).” Since clay is something, we have a contradiction since “nothing” excludes the possibility of “clay.”
– The Koran is a divine revelation with no errors. Hmm! “This Qur’an is not such as can be produced by other than Allah; on the contrary, it is a confirmation of (revelations) that went before it, and a fuller explanation of the Book – wherein there is no doubt – from the Lord of the worlds” Surah 1:37; and “The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom” Surah 45:2 . But then look at this. “Never have We sent a prophet or apostle to you with whose wishes Satan did not tamper. But Allah abrogates the interjections of Satan and confirms His own revelations.” Surah 22:52
Didn’t Allah have a Basic Education?
– It just doesn’t add up: Surah 4:11-12 and 4:176 state the Qur’anic inheritance law. When a man dies, and is leaving behind three daughters, his two parents and his wife, they will receive the respective shares of 2/3 for the 3 daughters together, 1/3 for the parents together [both according to verse 4:11] and 1/8 for the wife [4:12] which adds up to more than the available estate. A second example: A man leaves only his mother, his wife and two sisters, then they receive 1/3 [mother, 4:11], 1/4 [wife, 4:12] and 2/3 [the two sisters, 4:176], which again adds up to 15/12 of the available property.
– In Suras 6:14, 6:163 and 39:12 we are told that Muhammad (born 570 years after Jesus) was the first to bow down to Allah; making him the first Muslim. But wait, yet earlier in Qur’an passages weren’t we already told in the Qur’an that Abraham, his sons and Jacob were former Muslims (Surah 2:132), and that all the earlier prophets (Surah 28:52-53), and Jesus’ Jewish disciples (Surah 3:52) were also Allah believing Muslims?.
– Does Allah’s day equal to 1,000 human years (Surah 22:47, 32:5) or 50,000 human years (Surah 70:4)? “Verily a Day in the sight of thy Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning.” Surah 22:47; “The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in the Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years.” Surah 70:4
– Heaven and Earth created? Surah 2:29 says first earth and then heaven was created. But wait, Suras 79:27-30 indicate, first heaven was created, and after that earth?.
– To Intercede or Not To Intercede? The Qur’an makes contradictory statements about whether on the Day of Judgment intercession will be possible. No: in Suras: 2:122-123, 254; 6:51; 82:18-19; etc. Yes: in Suras: 20:109; 34:23; 43:86; 53:26; etc. Typically, with Qur’an errors; each position can be further supported/abrogated by a later Hadith.
– Does Allah forgive shirk? Shirk can encompass any object that a person may hold in regard higher than Allah. It is the most severe of sins and will not be forgiven. But the author of the Qur’an seems unable to decide if Allah will ever forgive it or not. No in Suras 4:48 and 4:116; and Yes in Suras 4:153, 25:68-71. Another contradiction: According to lies in Surah 6:76-78 Abraham committed this sin of polytheism as he takes moon, sun, stars to be his Lord. Yet Muslims believe that all prophets are without any sin!
– In Surah 96:1-2 we read that God made man from a blood clot. But in Surah 21:30 it says man was made from water. And Surah 15:26 says man was made from clay.
– According to Surah 10:90-92, Pharaoh believed “in the sight of death” and was saved. But Surah 4:18 says that such a thing can’t happen because Pharaoh did not also repent.
– Will Christians enter Paradise or go to Hell? Suras 2:62 and 5:69 say “Yes” to Paradise. Surah 5:72 (3 verses later) and Surah 3:85 say “No” to Paradise.
– In Surah 2:234 widows are to keep themselves apart for 4 months and 10 days after their husband’s death. In Surah 2:240 it is one year.
– Allah, the god revealed in the Quran, is not a loving father. It says that he desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39, 125-126)
