Pease b upon you,

I want to prove to you that according to Isaiah chapter 53, it’s crystal clear that the man God spoke about is not Jesus.

   1 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

   2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

The verse says (like a root of dry ground). Jesus came from Nazareth which is a fertile land. While Mohamed came from Makkah which is desert land e.g. dry land.

   3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

•   The verse says a man of suffering… Like one from whom people hide their faces: Mohamed was rejected by his own tribe and his uncles and they all fought against him.

•   The verse says a man of suffering, and familiar with pain: Mohamed’s father died before he was born while his mother was pregnant; his mother died when he was five to six years old; he does not have brothers or sisters; his grandfather who adopted him died when he was eight years old; his beloved wife Khadegah who loved her so much died two years after he became a prophet.

•   The verse says that we held him in low esteem: his tribe used to assault and mock him and they accused him that he is crazy. They expelled him from Mecca to Medina. All the teaching of Mohamed tells us that he perfected good manners, but up to today the majority of people call him a terrorist.

   4 Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.

Quran says that Mohamed bores our suffering.

•   Quran (9:128) There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful.

   5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.

Mohamed was engaged in several battles to defend the believers from the aggressors who used to invade them.

   6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Please note that Christians misunderstood the meaning of (the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all) and assumed that it means a savior who will carry our sins. The correct meaning is that God put him in charge of mankind to preach to them the His law so we repent in order to be forgiving. The proof that Christians misunderstood the meaning of savior is in Ezekiel which says that a wicked man needs to turn from his sins and repent and do righteous in order to be forgiving. It did NOT say that you need another person (savior) to carry our sins.

•   Ezekiel (18:21) “But if the wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed and observes all My statutes and practices justice and righteousness, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 22 “All his transgressions which he has committed will not be remembered against him; because of his righteousness which he has practiced, he will live.

•   Ezekiel (18:30) “Therefore, I will judge each of you, O people of Israel, according to your actions, says the Sovereign LORD. Repent, and turn from your sins. Don’t let them destroy you!

God commanded Mohamed to convey His message (Quran) to mankind, and God warned Mohamed that if he does not convey the message, God will hold him liable for the sins of humanity. But Mohamed conveyed the message.

•   Quran (5:67) O Messenger, announce that which has been revealed to you from your Lord, and if you do not, then you have not conveyed His message. And Allah will protect you from the people. Indeed, Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.

   7 He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

As I said in verse 5 above that Mohamed was engaged in several battles, and also his tribe used to assault him and they wounded him, yet he did not complain or opened his mouth. When the angel came to him and asked his permission to destroy the city on the wicked, Mohamed refused and told the angel that perhaps their offspring may become believers.

•   Children in Ta'if stoned the Prophet and caused his blood to flow. Whilst he sat and cried, an angel came seeking his permission to destroy the city but he tearfully said, "No, for I have hope that their offspring shall believe

   8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished.

The verse says that he was cut off from the land of the living: When Mohamed and his followers couldn’t handle the aggression of his tribe, he escaped from Makkah to Medina.

   9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.

This is one crystal clear evidence that God was not talking about Jesus in this verse. The verse says that he was assigned a grave with the wicked, but Jesus does not have a grave on earth because he rose. However, Mohamed has a grave and he was buried with the wicked who rejected him and assaulted him.

   10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.

This is another crystal clear evidence that God was not talking about Jesus in this verse. The verse says that he will see his offspring, but Jesus does not have children while Mohamed has.

   11 After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.

The meaning of (he will bear their iniquities) is that he will be patient from their assaults against him because verse 7 above says that he was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth.

   12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

I already explained the meaning of (he bore the sin of many) above, and the meaning of (made intercession for the transgressors) is that God granted him intercession to take out of hellfire anyone who associated none with God.

•   Prophet Mohamed said: …When I see Him (God), I will fall down in prostration before Him, and will remain in prostration as long as He will, and then He will say, “Raise your head, O Muhammad, and speak, for you will be listened to, and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted, and ask, for your request will be granted.” So I will raise my head and praise Allah as He has taught me and then I will intercede and He will put a limit for me (to intercede for a certain type of people). I will take them out of hellfire and let them enter Paradise, till none will remain in the Fire except those whom Quran will imprison (i.e., those who are destined for eternal life in the fire)…
Sahih al-Bukhari 7440

As verse 9 above says that he was assigned a grave, and Jesus does not have any grave on earth, therefore, Christians have no excuse not to believe that God was talking about another man. Please send this message to all your Christian friends that perhaps God may guide them and you will receive the reward.

Regards,

The Bible says that Jesus is racist, rude to his mother, and terrorist; and the Torah says that God is foolish.

1.   The Bible says that Jesus was rude to his mother Mary.

•   John (2:4) Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.”

2.   The Bible says that Jesus was a terrorist. He came to kill people and to remove peace from the earth. This verse contradicts another verse that says if anyone hits you on your right cheek, then turn to him your left cheek.

•   Matthew (10:34) “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

However, Quran says that Jesus was very nice and polite to his mother Mary, and he was not a dictator.

   Quran (19:32) And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant.

3.   The Bible says that Jesus was racist in his answer to the Canaanite woman who sought his help to cure her daughter who was “severely demon-possessed”.

•   Matthew (15:22-26) … But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”

4.   The Old Testament says that God is foolish, weak, and powerless. I can’t imagine how Christians and Jews believe in such books.

•   1 Corinthians (1:25) “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”

5.   Genesis says that Jacob defeated God. Who of the creatures of God could defeat Him? None.

•   Genesis (32:28) Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.”

However, Quran says that God is the most powerful.

   Quran (22:74) They have not appraised Allah with true appraisal. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

I hope this is enough to convince you that the Bible and Torah are modified. I invite you to read Quran with good intention that you want to know the truth, and God willing, you may be able to discover the truth.

Let me prove to you that Jesus is not God or son of God and from the Bible.

When Jesus says that (The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father,) he clearly means that he is not god because he does not have any authority. Then when Jesus says (I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me), it does not mean that Jesus and the Father are one. (I am in the Father) means that he is protected and supported by God, (and that the Father is in me) means that the love of God is in Jesus e.g. Jesus keeps thinking of how to please God.

•   John (14:10) Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.

This is to prove that God is one God and Jesus is a Lord. The meaning of a Lord is not god, it means master, leader, king.

•   Ephesians (1:3) “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”

Jesus will tell Christians on the Day of Judgment that he never knew them and to stay away of him because they are evildoers. As you see in the verse, Christians will tell Jesus that we did everything that you commanded us to do, but Jesus will tell Christians that I did not tell you in the Bible that I am God, but you considered me part of God or God. For this reason, Jesus will say to Christians to stay away of him. Please note that they called Jesus Lord, they did not call him God. I already explained to you the meaning of Lord in previous verse.

•   Matthew (7:22-23) Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

The Bible says that Jesus is a mediator between God and men. Therefore, this is a proof that Jesus is not God. Please note that the Bible says that Jesus gave himself a ransom for all (to be testified in due time). The meaning of (to be testified in due time) is to testify on the Day of Judgment before God that he never told mankind that he is god.

•   1 Timothy (2:5-6) For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Jesus said (I ascend unto … and to my God, and your God). Please note that Jesus said (my God) which means that he is not God. I just don’t understand what’s more proof the church needs to see in order to understand that Jesus is not God. 

•   John (20:17) “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”

Jesus told people (our God) which means the God of Jesus and the God of people. This is the principle of Islam that God is one and if you associate any partner with him or you worship another god other than Him, you will never enter paradise and you will be destroyed in hellfire forever.

•   Mark (12:29) Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.

I just don’t understand how Christians believe that God came to earth in the shape of a man while God says that He is not a man.

•   Hosea (11:9) I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.

•   Numbers (23:19) God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Christians believe that Jesus is god or part of God because there are few verses in the Bible that says that they worship Jesus. Please understand that the meaning of (let all the angels of God worship Him) is (let angels accept him and obey him). God also says in Quran that He instructed all angels to bow down (prostrate) to Adam. This does not mean that Adam is god or part of God. It just simply means that God wants all angels to obey Adam and to consider him the leader.

•   Hebrews (1:6) And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “And let all the angels of God worship Him.”

•   Quran (2:34) And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate before Adam"; so they prostrated, except for Iblees (Satan). He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers.

This verse is incorrect because it says that every knee will bow to Jesus who is on earth. But more than 70% of people on earth don’t believe that Jesus is god and they never bowed to him, but the verse says (every) which means 100%.

•   Philippians (2:10) so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

Those who are in the boat (worshiped him) mean that they obeyed him and honoured him and followed his instructions and teaching precisely. Please note that they told him that you are son of God, they did not tell him you are God. The meaning of son of God does not mean son (partner), it means one of those who are closed in love to God because the Bible says about many prophets that they are sons of God like Adam …

•   Matthew (14:33) And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!”

•   Luke (3:38) Kenan was the son of Enosh. Enosh was the son of Seth. Seth was the son of Adam. Adam was the son of God.

Please note that this verse says king of the Jews which means leader. Then it says (worship him) which I already explained above that they honoured and obeyed him and followed his instructions and teachings, and also as I mentioned above in Quran that all angels bow down to Adam…
 
•   Matthew (2:2) “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”

Again, in this verse the man called Jesus (lord) which I explained above with proof that it means leader. I already explained the meaning of worshiped him many times above which means accepted to follow his teaching.

•   John (9:37–38) Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.” Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.

If the meaning of (worship me) as I mentioned above is that Jesus is god, why did he say in this verse “the Father is greater than I”.
 
•   John (14:28) You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

If Jesus is god, why did he say in this verse “My father… is greater than all”.

•   John (10:29) My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
 
If Jesus is god, why did he say in this verse “By myself I can do nothing… for I seek not to please myself but Him who sent me”.

•   John (5:30) By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

If Jesus is god, why did he say in this verse “…they belong to the Father who sent me”.

•   John (14:24) Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

If Jesus is god, why did he say in this verse “the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent”.

•   John (17:3) Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

If Jesus is god, why did he say in this verse “Jesus of Nazareth, a MAN approved by God to you…”

•   Acts (2:22) "Men of Israel, hear these words! Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved by God to you by mighty works and wonders and signs which God did by him in the midst of you, even as you yourselves know,

If Jesus is god, why did he tell people that he is NOT good, and “No one is good except God alone”.

•   Luke (18:18-19) Then a certain ruler asked Him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call Me good?” Jesus replied. “No one is good except God alone.

I hope this may convince you that Jesus is not God, but a prophet of God like Abraham, Moses, Joseph, etc. The principle of Islam is to believe willingly in your heart and say in your tongue that:
“There is no god but One God, Mohamed is His prophet, and Jesus son of Mary is not god or son of God but a prophet of God”

With Great Respect,

Peace be upon you,

Christians believe that Jesus suffered and died on a cross. He died for our sins. He was raised from the dead. After I researched the Bible, I was able to conclude that Jesus did not die. When they asked Jesus to give them a sign so they believe that he is the Prophet of God, Jesus gave them only one sign which is the sign of Prophet Jonah. Then Jesus told them that Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the son of man [Jesus] will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.   

•   Matthew (12:38) Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.”

•   Matthew (12:39) He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

•   Matthew (12:40) For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

I’ll summarize the story of Jonah, but if you are interested, you can read the whole story by clicking on this link
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jonah%201&version=NIV

God asked Jonah to go to Nineveh to preach wicked, but Jonah ran away to another city, Tarshish. When he boarded the boat, God sent a great wind on the sea. Then, they cast lots to find out who is responsible for this calamity (great wind) because the people on the boat used to believe in superstition. The lot fell on Jonah and they threw him into the sea. Then God commanded the huge fish to swallow him. He stayed inside the belly of the fish for three days and three nights. Inside the fish, he prayed to God from inside the belly of the fish, and God answered his prayer and commanded the fish to vomit him.

•   Jonah (1:7) Then the sailors said to each other, “Come, let us cast lots to find out who is responsible for this calamity.” They cast lots and the lot fell on Jonah.

•   Jonah (1:15) Then they took Jonah and threw him overboard, and the raging sea grew calm.

•   Jonah (1:17) Now the Lord provided a huge fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

•   Jonah (2:1-2) From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said: “In my distress I called to the Lord…

•   Jonah (2:10) And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.

Let’s analyze the story of Jonah. He prayed to God from inside the fish. Therefore, Jonah was alive when they threw him into the sea, and he was alive when the fish swallowed him, and he was alive inside the belly of the fish, and he was alive when the fish vomited him. God said that a man dies only once. Therefore, it can’t be that Jonah was dead when they throw him into the sea and when he entered the belly of the fish, then he came to alive inside the belly of the fish when he prayed to God.

•   Hebrews (9:27) And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,

Let’s go back to back to the sign that Jesus gave to them as I mentioned above in Matthew (12:38). The only sign that Jesus gave them is that Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the son of man [Jesus] will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Since the sign that Jesus gave them was the same sign of Jonah except that Jonah entered the belly of a fish, while Jesus will enter the heart of the earth. We conclude from this that Jonah entered the fish alive. Therefore, Jesus entered the tomb alive. Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the fish alive. Therefore, Jesus was 3 days and 3 nights alive in the heart of the earth (grave). The fish vomited Jonah
fish alive. Therefore, Jesus rose while he was alive and not while he was dead.   

If Christians believe that Jesus was dead when he rose, therefore, he did not fulfill the prophecy sign that he gave to the Pharisees and teachers of the law.

More evidence that Prophet Mohamed is mentioned in the Torah and the Bible

I seek refuge with God from the accursed Satan,

•   Deuteronomy (18:18-20) I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him. But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.

God told Prophet Moses in the Torah that He will send a prophet. Christians believe that this person is Jesus. God said a prophet, but Christians call Jesus either God or son of God. God said that the prophet will be like Moses, but Jesus is different than Moses because Jesus was born from a mother only while Moses was born from a father and a mother. This proves that God meant a prophet other than Jesus. God told Moses if anyone claims that he is a prophet while he is a liar, he shall die. But Mohamed did not die, he remained alive for 22 years until he delivered the whole Quran (Holy book of Muslims) to mankind.

God told Moses that the prophet will be from among their brothers. Jesus came from the descendants of Isaac. Mohamed came from the descendants of Ishmael. Ishmael is the brother of Isaac. Therefore, the prophet that God spoke about will come from Ishmael's lineage. Let me prove this:

•   Genesis (25:9) Isaac and Ishmael, his sons, buried him in the cave of Machpelah…
•   Genesis (25:13) These are the names of the sons of Ishmael…then Kedar
•   Genesis (25:18) [Ishmael] His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the eastern border of Egypt, as you go toward Ashur…

Mohamed is from the lineage of Kedar. Kedar lived near the eastern border of Egypt which is Saudi Arabia, where Mohamed lived.

The Servant that God will send will sing a song of praise to God in the city where Kedar lived. Muslims believe it's Adhan (calling for prayer i.e. Allah Akbar… which means God is Greatest…)

•   Isaiah (42:10-12) Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them. Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops. Let them give glory to the LORD and proclaim his praise in the islands.

God said that the servant that He will send will not shout or cry. But according to the Bible, Jesus cried out in a loud voice. This also proves that God meant another prophet other than Jesus.

•   Isaiah (42:1-2) Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets.

•   Matthew (27:46) About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

The Bible says that a person will come after the departure of Jesus. Christians believe that this person is the Holy Spirit. The signs of the person that will come after the departure of Jesus:
 
•   John (16:7) But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

Please note that the verse said “him” which means a male (man). If it’s a Holy Spirit, it should be “it”.

•   John (14:16-17) I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

Bible says that he will be with us forever. The book that Mohamed came with “Quran” is still with us for more than 1400 years. God promised in Quran that He will protect it from alteration and no one can change a letter from it. Please click
https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2015/07/22/oldest-quran-manuscript-found-orig.cnn/video/playlists/the-quran/
to watch non-Muslims from England who tested the age of the original copy of the Quran that was written more than 1400 years and compared it to the current copy of the Quran that we have today and found it to be the same.

•   John (15:26) When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me,

Please note that Quran testifies about Jesus.
1.   Quran (3:45 and 49) The Angels said, O Mary, God gives you good news of a Word from Him. His name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, well-esteemed in this world and the next, and one of the nearest. A messenger to the Children of Israel: “I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I make for you out of clay the figure of a bird; then I breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God’s leave. And I heal the blind and the leprous, and I revive the dead, by God’s leave. And I inform you concerning what you eat, and what you store in your homes. In that is a sign for you, if you are believers.”

•   John (16:13) When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.

Bible says that he will tell you about the future. There are many miracles in Quran that were recently discovered with highly sophisticated technology. To name one, Big- Bang
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang
1.   Quran (21:30) Do the disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were one mass, and We tore them apart? And We made from water every living thing. Will they not believe?
 
•   John (16:14) He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.

Bible says that he will admire Jesus. Quran admired Jesus and his mother Mary.
1.   Quran (3:42) And [mention] when the angels said, O Mary, indeed God has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.
2.   Quran (19:30-36) [Jesus] said, Indeed, I am the servant of God. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah (paying charity) as long as I remain alive. And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive. That is Jesus, the son of Mary - the word of truth about which they are in dispute. It is not [befitting] for God to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is. [Jesus said], “And indeed, God is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.

Please note that God told Moses in the first verse that I mentioned above whoever does not follow the words that God tells to this prophet, He will require it of him i.e. will suffer in hellfire. Christians believe that God is our father, and a father will not make his children suffer in hellfire. Let me remind you what happened to Adam when he disobeyed God. God created Adam in the garden and told him to eat from whatever trees he wants except one tree. When Adam disobeyed God and ate from this tree, God immediately kicked him out of the garden to the earth to suffer and work hard and so on. God made this incident to show mankind how serious God is about punishing those who disobey Him.

Peace be upon you and your family,

I want to prove to you that Prophet Mohamed is mentioned in the Torah and the Bible.

1.   First, let me prove to you that the Jewish changed the name of the sacrificed son of Prophet Abraham from Ishmael to Isaac.
 
•   Genesis (16:16) Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael.
•   Genesis (21:5) Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

According to these two verses, Ishmael was 14 years older than Isaac.

•   Genesis (22:2) Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love-Isaac- and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”

According to this verse, God told Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his only son Isaac. But as I mentioned in previous two verses, Ishmael was 14 years older than Isaac. Therefore, the only son prophet Abraham had when God instructed him to sacrifice was Ishmael.


2.   Let me remind you that God is Jealous. Jealous does not mean that He is jealous of someone who has a better car or house, etc. Jealous here means that He does not share anything with anyone. For example, a human or animal has a son; therefore, God does not have a son.

•   Isaiah (42:8) I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols.
•   Exodus (34:14) for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

Some Christians may say that Jesus is not a son of God, but he is god, or the shadow of God, or trinity i.e. part of God. Let me prove to you that Jesus claimed in the Bible that he is nothing, not even good.

•   Luke (18:18-19) Then a certain ruler asked Him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call Me good?” Jesus replied. “No one is good except God alone.

If Jesus did not allow people to call him even “good”, why then Christians call him son of God or God. Some Christians may claim that Jesus meant to be humble. Let me then tell you that in this case Jesus misled mankind and I don’t believe this.

3.   God told Prophet Moses in the Torah that He will send another prophet. Why God did not mention the name of the prophet? Is God playing games with us? Of course not, God mentioned the name of the prophet but the Jewish deleted it.

•   Deuteronomy (18:18-20) I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him. But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.

Let us analyze these three verses. The Christians believe that the man that God spoke about is Jesus.
1.   Prophet (as I bolded above in the verse): God told Moses “a prophet”, so why do Christians call Jesus son of God, or God.
2.   Like you (as I highlighted above in the verse in red color): Please note that God told Moses that the prophet will be like Moses. But Jesus is different than Moses because Jesus was born from a mother and Moses was born from a father and a mother. Therefore, God meant another person.
3.   From among their brothers (as I highlighted above in the verse in blue color): God told Moses that the prophet will be from among their brothers. Jesus is from the Israelites, but Mohamed is from the brothers of the Israelites, because Jesus came from the descendants of Isaac and Mohamed came from the descendants of Ishmael, and as I mentioned above Ishmael is the brother of Isaac.
4.   That same prophet shall die (as I highlighted above in the verse in purple color): God told Moses if the prophet is a liar, he shall die. But Mohamed’s book “Quran” is still with us for more than 1400 years.

4.   God also said in the Bible that a man will come after the departure of Jesus. Why God did not mention the name of this person. It’s because Christians deleted his name. Christians today believe that this person is the Holy Spirit. Please note that the verse said: “him” which means a male (man).

•   John (16:7) But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

•   John (16:14) He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.

Please note that Jesus said in the Bible that the person who will come will glorify him. Let me inform you that Quran glorifies Jesus and his mother Mary. Please note that Quran is the holy book for Muslims.

•   Quran (3:42) And [mention] when the angels said, O Mary, indeed God has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.

•   Quran (19:30-36) [Jesus] said, Indeed, I am the servant of God. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah (paying charity) as long as I remain alive. And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive. That is Jesus, the son of Mary - the word of truth about which they are in dispute. It is not [befitting] for God to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is. [Jesus said], “And indeed, God is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.

5.   I hope this proves to you that Prophet Mohamed is mentioned in the Torah and the Bible but his name was deleted similar to the name of the sacrificed son of Prophet Abraham whose name was changed to Isaac as I mentioned in the first page.

6.     Now if Prophet Mohamed is a liar and he is not a prophet of God and he only wants to become famous, why then he told Christians that they are disbelievers. If a man wants to be famous, he should be friend with everyone to gain more supporters.

•   Quran (5:72) They have certainly disbelieved who say, “God is the Messiah, the son of Mary” while the Messiah has said, “O Children of Israel, worship God, my Lord and your Lord.” Indeed, he who associates others with God - God has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.

•   Quran (5:73) They have certainly disbelieved who say, “God is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.

•   Quran (9:30-31) The Jews say, “Ezra is the son of God”; and the Christians say, “The Messiah is the son of God.” That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May God destroy them; how are they deluded? They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides God, and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him.

What do Muslims believe in?
1.   Muslims believe in one God, who is not Jesus, we don’t associate any partner with Him,
2.   And His angels,
3.   And all His prophets from Adam till Mohamed,
4.   And all the books that He sent to mankind i.e. Zober for prophet David (does not exist anymore), Torah for prophet Moses (that some of it are currently altered), Bible for prophet Jesus (that some of it are currently altered), and Quran for prophet Mohamed (which God promised to protect from alteration till the end of the world because God will not send any books anymore). Please click this link to watch scientists from England that tested the original copy of the Quran that was written more than 1400 years and compared it to the current copy of the Quran that we have today and found it to be the same.
https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2015/07/22/oldest-quran-manuscript-found-orig.cnn/video/playlists/the-quran/
5.   And the unseen (i.e. we don’t know the future, whatever happens, is the will of God whether good or not and we have to accept it and be grateful to God even if it’s not good),
6.   And in the Day of Judgment and the disbelievers will go to hellfire forever as a punishment and believers will go to heaven forever as a reward.

Muslims believe that God will count a sin as one point and a good doing as 10 points. When we make more sins than our good doings, God may delete them if He wills except if you associate any partner with Him. If anyone associates any partner with God like Jesus, Ezra, etc, there will be no court for them and they will go directly to hellfire forever.

To become a Muslim, you must believe in your heart and say in your tongue the following statement:
•   I testify that there is no god but one God, and I testify that Mohamed is His servant and His prophet, and I testify that Jesus (son of Mary) is His servant and His prophet.

Thank you kindly for taking the time to read this article. May God enlighten your heart and the heart of every human on earth to see the way of heaven? Please forward a copy of this article to all non-Muslim friends that may God guides them.

With Great Respect,

Assalamo Alaikum,

I am choking: And wait patiently for the judgment of your Lord, for surely you are before Our eyes (انا اختنق) : (وَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ فَإِنَّكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا)
And how is that: You do not know that Allah may after that brings some new thing to pass (و كيف ذلك) : (لَا تَدْرِي لَعَلَّ اللَّهَ يُحْدِثُ بَعْدَ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ أَمْرًا)
And when: So be patient with a good patience, surely they think it to be far off, And We see it near (ومتى) : (فَاصْبِرْ صَبْرًا جَمِيلًا إِنَّهُمْ يَرَوْنَهُ بَعِيدًا وَنَرَاهُ قَرِيبًا)

O son of Adam … Keep smiling … Allah  (يا ابن ادم ... تبسم ... فان الله)
                                                      Didn’t cause you distress except to make you happy                      (ما اشقاق الا ليسعدك)
                                                      And didn’t take anything from you except to give you                    (وما اخذ منك الا ليعطيك)
                                                      And didn’t make you cry except to make you laugh                        (وما ابكاك الا ليضحكك)
                                                      And didn’t withhold from you except to give you from His favor       (وما حرمك الا ليتفضل عليك)
                                                      And didn’t try you except He loves you                                          (وما ابتلاك الا لانه يحبك)


وَسَارِعُوا إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ
Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth, prepared for the righteous (3:133)

So, please keep your duty to Allah!

Assalamo Alaikum, dear brothers and sisters,

I have been reading few articles that some brothers asking of why Anti-Muslim sites say so and so about Quran. Therefore, I decided to write to remind you that once you notice that this is an Anti-Muslim site, you MUST immediately close it.
 
Example: Allah told the believers in Quran to lower their gaze (from looking at any forbidden things). Thus, if you see a naked woman in bikini, you must turn your eyes away of her. However, if you choose to go and chat with her to explain to her Islam, then in my personnel opining you are only playing (deceiving yourself) because there are many other occasions/places to explain to her Islam. 

You are claiming that the Anti-Muslims sites are the major enemies to Islam. My two cents answer is: this is incorrect. In fact we (Muslims) are helping them to stay in business by visiting their sites and asking them questions. It’s very simple, if you open a store and no one buy from you, you will be out of business within a month or two. If you want to marry, would you go to a Strip Club to search for a wife!!! Therefore, why do you go to these sites? What would you expect the goal of these sites other than misleading Muslims and non-Muslims and promoting hatred against Muslims? Those Anti-Muslims sites are Satan (Shayateen Al-ins)

O ye who believe! follow not Satan's footsteps: if any will follow the footsteps of Satan, he will (but) command what is shameful and wrong (24:21)
 
Allah told us to deliver Quran to mankind but as He wants, not as we want. Our duty is to advertise in public media about Quran and invite them to contact us to explain to them Quran and answer any question they may ask. But if they reply to mock or undermine Quran, then we are not allowed to deal with them anymore.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, Convey from me even an Ayah of the Qur'an; relate traditions from Banu Israel, and there is no restriction on that; but he who deliberately forges a lie against me let him have his abode in the Hell.

We all know that Allah sent a warning to Prophet Mohammad when he erred.
(The Prophet) frowned and turned away. Because there came to him the blind man (i.e. 'Abdullah bin Umm-Maktum, who came to the Prophet while he was preaching to one or some of the Quraish chiefs). And how can you know that he might become pure (from sins)? Or he might receive admonition, and the admonition might profit him? As for him who thinks himself self-sufficient, To him you attend; What does it matter to you if he will not become pure (from disbelief: you are only a Messenger, your duty is to convey the Message of Allah). But as to him who came to you running, And is afraid (of Allah and His punishment). Of him you are neglectful and divert your attention to another, Nay, (do not do like this); indeed it (this Qur'an) is an admonition. So whoever wills, let him pay attention to it. (80:1-12)

If you agree with me, please tell your friends/relatives about it. If not, please share your knowledge/suggestions with us.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Question about Zakir Naik
« on: December 12, 2016, 02:12:37 AM »
Akhi Osama, Assalamo Alaikum,

I got to know Zakir Naik through your website. I read a couple of articles in his website peace. Later, I saw his picture receiving award from Saudi Arabia Ruler Salman.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/03/world/middleeast/saudi-award-goes-to-dr-zakir-naik-a-muslim-televangelist-who-harshly-criticizes-us.html?_r=0
I researched further about Zakir and found on Wikipedia “He is regarded by some as an exponent of the Salafi ideology, and, by some, as a radical Islamic televangelist propagating Wahhabism”

Let me remind you what our beloved Prophet Mohammad (ﷺ) told us:

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مَهْدِيٍّ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ أَبِي مُوسَى، عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ مُنَبِّهٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ مَنْ سَكَنَ الْبَادِيَةَ جَفَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ الصَّيْدَ غَفَلَ وَمَنْ أَتَى أَبْوَابَ السَّلاَطِينِ افْتُتِنَ‏
It was narrated from Ibn 'Abbas, that the Prophet (ﷺ) said: Whoever resides in the deserts, he becomes ignorant, whoever follows game, he becomes heedless, and whoever comes to the door of the Sultan, he will suffer a Fitnah (perverted).

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عُبَيْدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ الْحَكَمِ النَّخَعِيُّ، عَنْ عَدِيِّ بْنِ ثَابِتٍ، عَنْ شَيْخٍ، مِنَ الأَنْصَارِ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِمَعْنَى مُسَدَّدٍ قَالَ ‏"‏ وَمَنْ لَزِمَ السُّلْطَانَ افْتُتِنَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ زَادَ ‏"‏ وَمَا ازْدَادَ عَبْدٌ مِنَ السُّلْطَانِ دُنُوًّا إِلاَّ ازْدَادَ مِنَ اللَّهِ بُعْدًا ‏"‏ ‏.
Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: He said: He who sticks to a king is perverted. This version adds: The nearer a servant (of Allah) goes to a king, the farther he keeps away from Allah.

قول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إياكم وأبواب السلطان، فإنه قد أصبح صعبا هبوطا. رواه الطبراني والديلمي، وصححه الألباني
the Prophet , peace be upon him , said: Beware of the doors of the Sultan, it may become difficult downs

قال علي بن ابي طالب: إذا رأيت العلماء عند باب الملوك فبئس الملوك وبئس العلماء واذا رأيت الملوك عند باب العلماء فنعم الملوك ونعم العلماء
Ali ibn Abi Taleb said: if you see the scholars at the doors of the kings, then the kings and the scholars are evil, and if you see the kings at the door of the scholars, then the kings and the scholars are righteous.

I am really confused. Can you please explain to me???

My Lord! bestow wisdom on me, and join me with the righteous, And grant me an honourable mention in later generations, And make me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight.  (26:83-85)

رَبِّ ٱجْعَلْنِى مُقِيمَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِى ۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَآءِ
O my Lord! make me one who establishes regular Prayer, and also (raise such) among my offspring O our Lord! and accept Thou my Prayer. (14:40)

Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous. (25:74)

Our Lord! we believe in what Thou hast revealed and we follow the messenger, so write us down with those who bear witness. (3:53)

Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Hell. Indeed, its punishment is ever adhering. It is a terrible abode and an evil station. (25:65-66)

رَبَّنَا ٱفْتَحْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ قَوْمِنَا بِٱلْحَقِّ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلْفَـٰتِحِينَ

Our Lord! forgive us for our sins and wasted efforts, make our foothold sure, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk. (3:147)

رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَآ إِصْرًۭا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦ ۖ وَٱعْفُ عَنَّا وَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا وَٱرْحَمْنَآ ۚ أَنتَ مَوْلَىٰنَا فَٱنصُرْنَا عَلَى ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلْكَـٰفِرِينَ
Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people. (2:286)

رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِىٓ أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ ٱلَّتِىٓ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَىَّ وَعَلَىٰ وَ ٰلِدَىَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَـٰلِحًۭا تَرْضَىٰهُ وَأَصْلِحْ لِى فِى ذُرِّيَّتِىٓ ۖ إِنِّى تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ وَإِنِّى مِنَ ٱلْمُسْلِمِينَ
My Lord! Grant me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favour which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds, such as please You, and make my off-spring good. Truly, I have turned to You in repentance, and truly, I am one of the Muslims (submitting to Your Will). (46:15)

I invite you to heaven which Allah described it in Quran (32:17) No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.

Please do yourself a favor, please read Quran.

May Allah guides you to the truth,

With peace and respect,

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Question re miracle of 19
« on: November 22, 2016, 10:58:57 AM »
As’alamo Alaikim Brother Osama,

I have read few articles about the miracle of 19 in your website and I have few questions:

What is the reason that he didn’t mention the entire verse as in this example?
http://www.answering-christianity.com/the_great_miracle_book/Scan0269.jpg
He used: وَلَا أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِندِي خَزَائِنُ اللَّهِ وَلَا
But the actual verse is: وَلَا أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِندِي خَزَائِنُ اللَّهِ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ وَلَا أَقُولُ إِنِّي مَلَكٌ وَلَا أَقُولُ لِلَّذِينَ تَزْدَرِي أَعْيُنُكُمْ لَن يُؤْتِيَهُمُ اللَّهُ خَيْرًا ۖ اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ ۖ إِنِّي إِذًا لَّمِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ   
By the way, this is not the only example. There are other examples that he didn’t mention the whole verse.

Why did he only mention two words only from verse 36?
http://www.answering-christianity.com/the_great_miracle_book/Scan0277.jpg
One would claim that he is only using whatever words that are suitable to satisfy and prove his theory!

Quote from your article: “Adding all of the numerical values of the Prophets' and Messengers' names that were mentioned in the Holy Quran also all add up to a number that is a multiple of the number 19 without any remainder:

1)   I noticed that he mentioned the name of Prophet Jesus twice, once as Issa and another as Al-maseeh Essa ibn Mariam; and the name of Prophet Mohammad twice, once as Mohammad and another as Ahmed; and the name of Prophet Ibrahim twice, once with I and another without I.
I am only thinking of why he added the names of these Prophets twice? The only meaning I would think of is that he only wants to prove his theory!!!

Please note that those are only my thoughts and I could be wrong. Thus can you please explain this to me.

As'salamo Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

When Jibril asked Prophet (ﷺ) to tell him about the sign of the hour, He said: "when you see the barefoot, naked, destitute shepherds competing in constructing tall buildings - وَأَنْ تَرَى الْحُفَاةَ الْعُرَاةَ الْعَالَةَ رِعَاءَ الشَّاءِ يَتَطَاوَلُونَ فِي الْبُنْيَانِ ‏ "

I am thinking that Muslims misunderstood this Hadeeth, because they only attributed it to the Arab in the Gulf i.e. the Arab of the desert were poor, working as shepherd, and then they became rich and constructed tall buildings. I think that this Hadeeth has different meaning!

1) The Hadeeth began with (when you see the barefoot and naked), Prophet (ﷺ) didn't say (those who were barefoot and naked i.e. in the past). Thus, this means that we MUST see them in our naked eyes. As we see today, mankind (men/women) from all walks of life wear bikini in Egypt, Dubai, Lebanon, Jordan, Europe, China, India, and so on. We also see them in public half naked. If the Prophet (ﷺ) meant with (naked, barefoot, shepherd) as "poor" i.e. couldn't afford the cost of dress, he could have simply said (al-masakeen or al-fokra'a / المساكين او الفقراء).

2) (رِعَاءَ الشَّاءِ is translated to shepherds) and in another Hadeeth, it says, (رِعَاءَ الْبَهْمِ which is translated to herdsmen), but if we read this Hadeeth (كُلُّكُمْ رَاعٍ، وَكُلُّكُمْ مَسْؤولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ - All of you are shepherds (guardians) and each of you is responsible for his flock), then (رِعَاءَ الشَّاءِ) could mean "guardians of the beast i.e. those who have no brain).

3) Then, he said (competing in constructing tall buildings), which we see today all over the earth.
 
Therefore, the meaning of the Hadeeth will be: "you will see the barefoot, the naked, the destitute, the guardians of the beast constructing tall buildings". I think Prophet   (ﷺ) described mankind in this Hadeeth as (beast - الْبَهْمِ). The scary question is, does this include "those who think that they are Muslims because WE ALL think that we are Muslims but Allah alone knows this)?

If my thoughts are correct, then Allah yostar! because the Prophet (ﷺ) also said: The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish. Someone asked: Will that be because of our small numbers at that time? He replied: No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be scum and rubbish like that carried down by a torrent, and Allah will take fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and last enervation into your hearts. Someone asked: What is wahn (enervation). Messenger of Allah (ﷺ): He replied: Love of the world and dislike of death.

I decided to share with you my thoughts to solicit your feedback. Please feel free to brainstorm.

Jazakom Allah Khair,

As’salamo alaikum dear brothers and sisters,
 
First of all, the reason for calling to Islam should be based on a win-win solution. We want to win the blessings of Allah, and the person we are inviting into Islam should feel that he/she is welcomed to ask any questions they have in their minds regardless of anything. 

Second, we must follow Quran and the way of Prophet Mohammad (ﷺ):

1.   Never insult or confront non-Muslims i.e. don't fire back into those who criticize Islam by criticizing their religion. They do this on purpose to stir Muslims and damage Islam.

(6:108) And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge…

2.   When non-Muslims insult Muslims, we should say word of peace only. We are not allowed to insult them.

(28:55) And when they hear ill speech, they turn away from it and say, “For us are our deeds, and for you are your deeds. Peace will be upon you; we seek not the ignorant.”

3.   We also should remember that Allah ordered us to avoid those who mock Quran.

(6:68) When you see people mocking Our revelations, turn away from them so that they may change the subject. If Satan causes you to forget this, do not sit with the unjust people when you remember.

4.   We must use Quran alone for reference.

(50:45)... So admonish with the Qur'an such as fear My Warning.

5.   Please follow the way of Prophet Mohammad (ﷺ). Always inform them good news and if you become angry, remember to remain silent.

•   Anas reported that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Make things easy and do not make them difficult, cheer the people up by conveying glad tidings to them and do not repulse (them). “يسروا ولا تعسروا وبشروا ولا تنفروا”

•   Ibn Abbas reported that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Teach and make things easy and not difficult. When one of you is angry, he should be silent.”
“عَلِّمُوا وَيَسِّرُوا وَلاَ تُعَسِّرُوا، وَإِذَا غَضِبَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَسْكُتْ‏"

6.   If you choose to use other references i.e.;
•   Deuteronomy (18:18) I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.

Then, please don’t let them feel that you are confronting them. Otherwise, they will immediately tell you either “Jesus” or “the Prophet didn’t come yet”. Instead, show them that you are enquiring about it. You can say: I am unable to understand of why God told Moses that He will put His words in the mouth of the new Prophet. God already gave His words to Moses “Law”. Why God didn’t tell Moses that “I will send another Prophet to teach the Law that I already gave it to you”? Well, does this mean that God forgot to tell Moses specific things, or made errors and He wants to correct them. Of course not, this is impossible. God doesn’t forget nor makes errors. Therefore, I am guessing that God knew that mankind will alter His Law and want to send another Prophet to correct it.
 
Well, they may say its “The Bible, New Testimony”. You can tell them, but according to the Bible, Jesus said that he came to fulfill the Law of Moses.
•   Matt (5:17) Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
 
Then, you can say, does this mean that Jesus wants to fulfill a corrupted Law. It doesn’t make sense. So, it seems to me that the Bible is also altered; and so on.

I am sure that you will not be able to convince them except Allah wills. So, I prefer to use only Quran as a reference.

If anyone has a better suggestion, please feel free to share it with us. May Allah guide all of us to the straight path.

Jazakom Allah Khair
