As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers,

I don't know about "repeatedly sins" and "repent regularly".  Now sure, we must seek Allah Almighty's Forgiveness and Mercy every day.  I personally do this, walhamdulillah (all thanks to Allah).  These prayers almost never escape my mouth, walhamdulillah!  But if you sin repeatedly, then according to the Glorious Quran, your repentance is false, and your deeds will be worthless like your false iman (faith) because Allah Almighty will sink them to nothingness (i.e., your time, money and efforts put into your false repentance will not be accepted) for you.  Please visit:

www.answering-christianity.com/quran_moral_code.htm  (see entry 248).


To all Muslims, if you are one of those scammed idiots who think that if you go to Hajj or Pray one day in Mecca then all of your sins' weight will be either erased or overpowered by the heavier weight of the good deeds (a prayer in Mecca is like 1000000000000000000000000 times the regular prayers elsewhere pile of lies), then I give you the glad tidings that you're heading straight to Hell.  And you will be barking in the Day of Judgment that you were from the weak ones and scammed ones.  But it will be rejected from you.  See Noble Verses 14:021, 34:31-33, 40:47:

[040:047] And (imagine) when they would argue with each other in the hellfire. The weak (in this life) would say to those who deemed themselves important, “We followed you, because we were under your dominion and control. Are you now able to help us avoid some (of the pain and suffering) of the fire?”


Repentance in the Quran requires you to amend and to confess and to make it public and known that you have done wrong and have confessed and amended and paid back what is due to others, and that you have changed, and that you are not going back ever to the sin again.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Peace be upon you,



•   Prophet Mohamed said: Every son of Adam repeatedly sins, and the best of those who sin are those who regularly repent. He also said, By the One in whose hand is my soul, if you did not sin, God would replace you with people who would sin, and they would seek forgiveness from God and He would forgive them.




The Prophet never said such a thing. This fabricated hadith contains a big trap.

The Qur'an says the opposite, that a society is destroyed and changed not if it does not sin, but on the contrary, if it does sin.

And the holy Qur'an says that if a society stays away from sin, it will live a paradise-like life while still on earth.

Peace

Peace be upon you,

   Muslims believe that God is One, He is the Self-sufficient One, He begets not, and neither is He begotten, and there is nothing like Him.

Muslims believe that God is not Jesus. Muslims believe that Jesus is one of the Prophets of God. Muslims know God by His 99 names. To name some, the Almighty, the Forgiving, the Generous, the Merciful, Harsh in punishing those who disobey Him, the Compassionate, the Loving, etc. God is completely different than all His creatures.

In Islam, God does not expect people to be perfect, but He expects them to keep asking for forgiveness when they sin. This does not mean that a person can sin intentionally and at any time and all they have to do is ask for forgiveness, it means for those who sin unintentionally. All sinners have to say, “O God, forgive me” but must be sincere and intend to do their best not to sin again, but we will continue to sin. So, we have to keep asking for forgiveness and to do our best to repent.

•   Prophet Mohamed said: Every son of Adam repeatedly sins, and the best of those who sin are those who regularly repent. He also said, By the One in whose hand is my soul, if you did not sin, God would replace you with people who would sin, and they would seek forgiveness from God and He would forgive them.

Muslims believe that God will count a sin as one point and a good deed as 10 points. For example, if you say good morning to your children or neighbour, you will receive 10 credits. If you cook food for yourself or your family, you will receive 10 credits. But if you don’t feed the dog and keep him hungry, you will lose one credit. In this case, don’t you think that God is very Merciful in Islam? Muslims also believe that good deeds will wipe off bad deeds.

•   Quran (6:16) Whoever comes [on the Day of Judgement] with a good deed will have ten times the like thereof [to his credit], and whoever comes with an evil deed will not be recompensed except the like thereof; and they will not be wronged.

•   Quran (11:114) And establish the prayer (at the) two ends (of) the day and (at) the approach of the night. Indeed, the good deeds remove the evil deeds. That (is) a reminder for those who remember.

Only in the case when a Muslim helps those who are in need and donate to them, they will receive 700 credits and God may increase their rewards. What’s more mercy would you expect than 700 credits for only helping those in need e.g. giving a poor a sandwich or a glass of water.

•   Quran (2:261) The example of those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah is that of a grain that sprouts into seven ears, each bearing one hundred grains. And Allah multiplies the reward even more to whoever He wills. For Allah is All-Bountiful, All-Knowing.

•   Prophet Mohamed said: Save yourself from the hell fire even with half a date (to be given in charity) and if you do not find a half date, then with a good pleasant word.

   Non-Muslims believe that Muslims want to force Islam unto everyone. This is completely incorrect. In fact Muslims are not allowed to enforce Islam unto anyone. It’s either a person accepts Islam willingly and for the love of God or God does not want them. God said in Quran that there shall be no compulsion in religion.

•   Quran (2:256) There shall be no compulsion in religion; the right way has become distinct from the wrong way.
Whoever renounces evil and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy handle; which does not break. God is Hearing and Knowing.

God told Muslims in Quran to remind non-Muslims only, and we are not controllers over them. This means that we are not allowed to force them unto Islam. God alone will punish those who disbelieve. Muslims are not allowed to punish or kill those who refuse to accept Islam as a religion.

•   Quran (88:21 - 24) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. You are not over them a controller. However, he who turns away and disbelieves - Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment.

God also said that we are allowed to explain Islam to non-Muslims in nice manner only, and whoever wills, let him believe, and whoever wills, let him disbelieve. God alone will punish those who disbelieve, not Muslims.
 
•   Quran (16:125) Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good advice, and debate with them in the most dignified manner. Your Lord is aware of those who stray from His path, and He is aware of those who are guided.

•   Quran (18:29) And say, “The truth is from your Lord. Whoever wills-let him believe. And whoever wills-let him disbelieve”. We have prepared for the unjust a Fire, whose curtains will hem them in. And when they cry for relief, they will be relieved with water like molten brass, which scalds the faces. What a miserable drink, and what a terrible place.

   Non-Muslims believe that Muslims believe in “Jihad” i.e. killing non-Muslims. This is completely incorrect. The meaning of “Jihad” is to do your best to achieve the best result in anything you do i.e. when you work for your employer, you must do your best to do a good job; if anyone attacks you, you must do your best to fight to defend yourself; and so on. Muslims don’t believe in killing innocent people regardless of their religion. Islamic law allows the use of force in self-defence and in defence of those who are oppressed and unable to defend themselves only. If Muslims initiate the fight, God will not love them and will be destroyed in hellfire forever.

•   Quran (2:190) Fight in the way of God against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God loveth not aggressors.

When Muslims fight the aggressors for self-defence and if they ask for peace in the middle of the battle, Muslims should incline towards peace and cease the fight.

•   Quran (8:61) But if they incline towards peace, then incline towards it, and put your trust in God. He is the Hearer, the Knower.

If Muslims begin fight or kill deliberately innocent person for no reason, God will punish them in hellfire forever.

•   Quran (4:93) Whoever kills a believer deliberately, the penalty for him is Hell, where he will remain forever. And God will be angry with him, and will curse him, and will prepare for him a terrible punishment.

You may ask why then Muslims keep fighting and kill each other as we see on TV. Please note that those are NOT Muslims. They are the enemies of Islam and hate Muslims so they use Islam in their fights to damage our reputation.

   Non-Muslims believe that when Prophet Mohamed was weak in Makkah, he preached about peace, but in Medina, as he gained power, he changed his approach to military. This is completely incorrect because Quran was sent to be a solution to mankind to all times until the day of judgement, not only to Mohamed’s time. Quran was NOT sent completely to Mohamed at one time. Verses of Quran were revealed to Mohamed gradually based on the challenges he used to deal with. In Medina God commanded him to fight those who attacked him for self-defence. He had a small army and he used to fight huge armies and God protected him at all times. While God said to Moses in the Torah that if a liar claimed to be a prophet, God will kill him. Quran from beginning to end is about peace, relationships, fighting the enemy if they begin hostile without killing innocent people, animals, gardens, etc.

You may ask about verse (9:5) which Muhammad was told to slay the idolaters wherever he finds them. Please note that God is talking in this verse about the polytheists who made a treaty with Mohamed that they will not fight against him, but they broke their covenant and betrayed him and fought against him and killed many of his followers. So, God commanded Mohamed to slay them wherever he finds them because God knows they are not trustworthy. But if the innocent among them ask for protection, God commended Mohamed to grant them protection. So, please understand that this is not for all mankind. This is the proof:

•   Quran (9:4) Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].

Then God said in next verse to kill the polytheists wherever you find them. This is because in previous verse God said “if they don’t violate the treaty or support anyone against you”, but they violated it.

•   Quran (9:5) And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Then God commanded Mohamed in next verse to protect those who don’t violate the treaty from the polytheists.

•   Quran (9:6) And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah. Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.

   You may also ask about verse (9:29) which says Muslims are to fight against those to whom the Scriptures “Bible and Torah” were given until they pay tribute.

Please note that this verse was revealed because Jews and Christians refused to pay taxes to the city. The city needs to pay for cleaning roads, police, welfare for all religions, and so on. Then God commended Mohamed to fight them until they pay the taxes. Please note that God said to fight them until they pay the tribute, He did not say until you SLAY them. There is nothing wrong for asking citizens to pay tax and if they refuse, the government should impose fine against them or imprison them. This happened everywhere on earth today.

•   Quran (9:29) Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture [Torah and Bible] - [fight] until they give the jizyah [tribute] willingly while they are humbled.

You may wonder why only Christians and Jews have to pay jizyah (tax). This is because Muslims have to pay Zakah, 2.5% of their wealth tax. If Christians and Jews pay the taxes, Prophet Mohamed is not allowed to fight them or enforce them to accept Islam. He is only allowed to preach Quran in good manners as I explained above.

   You may also ask about verse (8:39) which says that after winning a crucial battle, Muhammad received instruction from God that permanently authorizes holy wars to spread Islam. Please note that in this verse, God is talking about those who hinder people from praying at the sacred Mosque (Ka’ba), and those who pay their money to hinder people from the way of God. This is not for all mankind. 

•   Quran (8:33) But what plea have they that Allah should not punish them, when they keep out (men) from the sacred Mosque - and they are not its guardians? No men can be its guardians except the righteous; but most of them do not understand.

•   Quran (8:35) The unbelievers spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the path of Allah and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell.

•   Quran (8:37) Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from unbelief) their past would be forgiven them; but if they persist the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them)

•   Quran (8:38) And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do.

•   Quran (8:39) If they refuse, be sure that Allah is your protector the Best to protect and the Best to help.

   In fact, God wants Muslims to be friends with all mankind regardless of their religion and to be just when dealing with them as long as they don’t fight us in order to encourage them to read the Quran.

•   Quran (60:8) Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes - from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.

Please note that God said in Quran He sent Prophet Mohamed to be a mercy to mankind to save them from hellfire, not to kill them. But those who rejected him and attacked him, God commanded him to fight them for self-defence.

•   Quran (21:107) And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.

   There are five pillars of Islam:

1.   For anyone to be a Muslim, they must believe in their heart and say in their tongue the testimony (Al-shahadah): I testify that there is no god but one God, and I testify that Mohamed is His prophet,

2.   Five daily prayers (each takes an average of 8 minutes, morning, noon, afternoon, evening, and night)
If anyone is disabled, they must pray while sleeping in bed or sitting in a chair but can’t ignore it.

3.   Fasting one month in Ramadan from sunrise till sunset, no food, drink, or sex during this time. If a person is sick and can’t fast, they must fast the missing days after Ramadan. If a person is sick for serious reasons and can’t fast, they shouldn’t fast but must feed one poor person for every missing day (average $10 a day). If a person is sick and does not have money, God will not hold them liable. 

4.   Zakah (paying charity): every year Muslims must pay 2.5% of their savings above $10,000 to the poor. Necessities like house, car, furniture, etc are not included, only savings.

5.   Pilgrimage: any person who is physically and financially capable of undertaking a journey to Makkah “Saudi Arabia” must do so only once in their lifetime. If incapable, God will not hold them liable.

   The reason God prescribed five prayers to Muslims every few hours a day is to keep reminding them to stay away of evil i.e. to remind them not to cheat, murder, harass people, etc. and to remind them to keep the commandments of God i.e. donate to charity, act justly, be dedicated at work, etc. It’s like an alarm, we set up the alarm at certain time to help us wake up on time and avoid being late. God said in Quran that the purpose of prayer is to prohibit immorality and wrongdoing.

•   Quran (29:45) Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do.

   The reason God prescribed fasting to Muslims in Ramadan from sunrise till sunset from food, water, and sex is to make them taste the suffering of hunger and thirst to help them remember that there are poor people who are also suffering from hunger so we help them by donating money, food, clothes, protection, etc. The meaning of Ramadan is a name of an Arabic month, like in English January, February, etc. Some people may think that fasting 15 hours a day is impossible, but when you fast for the love of God and fear from God, He will make fasting extremely easy for you and you will never feel tired. God said in Quran that the purpose of fasting is that you may become righteous.

•   Quran (2:183) O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous.

Then God said in Quran that we will never achieve righteousness until we donate to the poor from our money.

•   Quran (3:92) You will never achieve righteousness until you donate some of what you cherish. And whatever you give is certainly well known to Allah.

•   Prophet Mohamed said, whoever observes fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven.

   The reason that God prescribed to Muslims to pay Zakah (charity) is to purify them and delete their sins and cause their wealth to increase. When we donate to the poor, God will help us find a better job with better pay, so our incomes increase.

•   Quran (9:103) Take, [O, Muhammad], from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase, and invoke [Allah’s blessings] upon them. Indeed, your invocations are reassurance for them. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

   There are six pillars of belief:

1.   Muslims believe in one God, who is not Jesus, we don’t associate any partner with Him i.e. God has no son,

2.   And His angels,

3.   And all His prophets from Adam… Abraham… Jesus… until the last prophet Mohamed. We are not allowed to make distinction between any of them. We should treat all of them in the same manner we treat Mohamed.

4.   And all the books that God sent to mankind i.e. Torah for Prophet Moses (some of it are currently modified), Bible for Prophet Jesus (some of it are currently modified), and Quran for Prophet Mohamed (which God promised to protect it from modifications till the end of the world). Please click this link
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 original copy of Quran that was written more than 1400 years and compared it to the current copy of Quran that we have today and found it to be the same.

5.   And the unseen (we don’t know the future, whatever happens, is the will of God whether good or not, and we must accept it and be grateful to God even if it’s not good),

6.   And the Day of Judgment, people will go to either hellfire or heaven forever. There will be no savoir. Every human is responsible for their doings.

   There are many scientific miracles knowledge in Quran that was recently discovered with technology that was not available during the time of Prophet Mohamed. To name few, there are two seas in the same sea that meet together but there is a barrier between them and the water of each sea does not merge with the other. Today, scientists discovered that there are two oceans in the Gulf of Alaska that meet but never mix.

•   Quran (55:19-20) He has made the two seas to flow freely (so that) they meet together. Between them is a barrier which they cannot pass

   God said in Quran that there are 7 layers of heaven and 7 layers of earth. Scientists discovered today that there are seven layers of earth. For more information about other miracles, please read Quran.

•   Quran (65:12) It is Allah who has created seven heavens and of the earth, the like of them…

•   Quran (71:15) Do you not consider how Allah has created seven heavens in layers.

   The question is how Mohamed knew these miracles? Non-Muslims believe that the bad angels or Satan passed these secrets to Mohamed so people may believe that he is a prophet. But, when Mohamed told people about these miracles, the disbelievers mocked him and accused him that he is crazy. Therefore, if Satan is the one who passed these secrets to Mohamed, he did not benefit anything because these secrets discouraged people from believing Mohamed because he did not have any technology to prove it, and they thought he is crazy.

•   Quran (15:6) And they say, O you upon whom the message has been sent down, indeed you are mad.

The next question is how these bad angels or Satan foreseen the future and knew that a day will come unto people and invent technology that will prove these miracles if the Bible says that no one has the power to predict and reveal future events or know what tomorrow holds except God alone.

•   Revelation (5:2-3) And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it.

•   Matthew (24:36) But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.

This is to prove that God is the one who told Prophet Mohamed about theses miracles.

Please note that when God said “I am” in Exodus (3:14), He used in Greek “ho on”, but, when Jesus said in John (8:58) “I am”, he used in Greek “ego eimi”. Those are two different words, but those who translated the Bible from Greek to English translated it incorrectly.

The correct meaning is of "I am":

Please note that the Greek translation of the Hebrew text in Exodus (3.14) is “Ego eimi ho On”. The Creator’s description of Himself is translated into Greek as (ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ὤν Ego eimi ho on = I am the One Who IS). But in John 8.24, “...I am (he)! (ἐγώ εἰμι Ego eimi)” is the Greek translation of the Hebrew statement “I (am) he (אֲנִי֙ ה֔וּא Anee hoo)”. I found a video on Youtube that explains the meaning of “I am” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzheOdj0cFg

Peace be upon you,

Christians believe that Jesus is god or son of God “equal to God” because of a few verses in the Bible that they misunderstood and I will explain them and prove that Jesus is neither God nor son of God.

•   John (8:58) Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”

Christians believe that when Jesus said “I am” in John (8:58), he meant the same “I am” that God used in Exodus (3:14). Therefore, Jesus is god.

•   Exodus (3:14) God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

Please note that when God said “I am” in Exodus (3:14), He used in Greek “ho on”, but, when Jesus said in John (8:58) “I am”, he used in Greek “ego eimi”. Those are two different words, but those who translated the Bible from Greek to English translated it incorrectly.

If Jesus meant to say that (before Abraham was, I am “god”), why then he said in John (5:30) that “by myself, I can do nothing”? God said in the Bible that He is self-sufficient. When Jesus said that by himself he can do nothing meant that he is dependent on God. If Jesus depends on someone else, then he is not God. When Jesus said “before Abraham was, I am”, he simply meant to say that before God created Abraham, and before God placed mankind on earth, he was in the knowledge of God that he will be the Messiah “Prophet”.

•   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.

Also, if Jesus meant to say that (before Abraham was, I am “god”), why then he said “The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father”? This clearly means that he is not god because he does not have any authority.
 
•   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

•   John (14:6) Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus said “I am the way and the truth…” Please note that every prophet that God sent to mankind from Adam, Noah, John, Zachariah, Moses, Joseph, etc. was also the way and the truth because all those prophets preached the message of God to mankind. Therefore, they were the way and truth.

Jesus said “No one comes to the Father except through me” which means “through his teaching” which is the Bible that God gave to him to preach to people. Christians assumed that it means “except through worshiping me” which is completely incorrect because Jesus clearly testified in the Bible that he is not God. He said “the Lord our God” which means his God too. Also, note that Jesus said “the Lord is one” which means that Jesus is not part of God i.e. trinity.

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

When Jesus said “I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me”, he did not mean to say that he and the Father are one. “I am in the Father” means he is protected and supported by God, and “that the Father is in me” means that the love of God is in Jesus’ heart e.g. Jesus keeps thinking of how to please God.

Christians will disagree and say that John (10:30) says that Jesus and the Father are one. Therefore, Jesus is god.

•   John (10:30) I and my Father are one

But in next verses, when the Jews heard Jesus saying that he and the Father are one, they picked up stones to stone him because they told him you are claiming that you are god.

•   John (10:31) Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him

•   John (10:33) “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

In next verse, Jesus told the Jews, is not written in your own Scriptures that God said you all are gods. Jesus told Jew you all are gods, does this mean that Jews are gods? No, “gods” mean those who preach the commandments of God e.g. messengers of God.

•   John (10:34) Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law: 'I said you are gods'?

Then Jesus said in John (17:21 & 23) to his disciples Peter, Thomas, Judas, etc. that you all are in me just as I in the Father. Does this mean that these disciples are also gods? No. Therefore, when Jesus said “I and my Father are one” meant to say “one in the same purpose” which is to preach the commandments of God to mankind e.g. messenger of God, not “one in nature.” “One in the purpose” does not mean that Jesus is equal to God. “Purpose” means that both God and His servant Jesus have the same purpose which is to preach the commandments of God to mankind. 

•   John (17:21) that they may all be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.

•   John (17:23) I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

Christians also misunderstand the meaning of these two verses.

•   (John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

•   (John 1:14) The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

“In the beginning was the Word” – the meaning of “Word” is the commandment of God.
“The Word became flesh” – means the commandment of God which is “be and it is” became flesh that is Jesus.

Well, the Bible is the Word of God. Does this mean that the Bible is god? No, it means that the Bible is the commandments of God.

In Quran, the angels told Mary that God gives you good news of a “WORD” from Him who is Jesus. The meaning of “WORD” is a commandment.
 
•   Quran (3:45) [And mention] when the angels said, O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah].

Then Mary told the angels, how will I have a child when no man ever has sex with me? The angels replied, this is the commandment of God, when He wants anything, He only says to it “Be” and it is.

•   Quran (3:47) She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?” [The angel] said, “Such is Allah; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.

God is one God, and Jesus is a lord. The meaning of lord in the Bible for Jesus is a servant of God, prophet, messenger, teacher, sir, leader, mediator, and king. It doe not mean God.

•   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:”

•   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.

Christians believe that God came to earth in the shape of a man “Jesus”, but God says 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 misunderstand the meaning of “they worshipped Jesus” and assumed that he is god. Please note that the meaning of “let all the angels of God worship Him” is “let all angels of God accept him as a leader”. God also said in Quran that He instructed all angels to bow “prostrate” to Adam. This does not mean that Adam is god or equal to God. It just simply means that God wants all angels to accept Adam as a 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.

Those who are in the boat “worshiped him” mean that they obeyed him and followed his teaching. Please note that they told him “you are son of God”, they did not tell him “you are god”.

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

Some Christians believe that since they told him son of God, therefore he is equal to God “e.g. Trinity”. Well, the Bible also says that Adam, Ephraim, etc. are sons of God. Does this mean that Ephraim is equal to God? No, this is the same for Jesus. The meaning of son of God does not mean partner with God or little god or equal to God because God said in Isaiah (42:8) that He does not share His glory with anyone. “Son of God” means one who God loved and chose among people to preach His message to mankind because he is more sincere and dedicated to God than other mankind.

•   Jeremiah (31:20) Is not Ephraim my dear son, the child in whom I delight...

•   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.

This verse says “king of the Jews” which means leader. Then it says (the star comes to worship him) which means it comes to follow him.
 
•   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.”

If the meaning of “worship me” above is 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.

And 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.
 
And why did he say in this verse “…they belong to the Father who sent me”.

•   John (14:24) … These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

And 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.

And 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,

And why did he tell people that he is nothing, not even good? God alone is “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.

Christians believe that when Jesus said that he is not good or a man approved by God or etc., he meant to humble himself like a human. Well, in this situation, Jesus misled mankind, and this is impossible. This is only the way how Christians think, and this is not from the Bible. There is not a single verse in the Bible that Jesus “himself” claimed explicitly that he is god. But in Quran, there are many verses where Allah clearly declared that He is God.

•   Quran (20:14) Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance.

Please note that all Arabic-speaking people from all religions call God “Allah” including Christians. So, you should know that Christians who speak Arabic call God “Allah”. Allah is the translation of God.

Quran Morality and Moral Code, Laws & QA / The quest of all people for Salaat
« Last post by Emre_1974tr on June 25, 2022, 05:14:54 AM »
Allah Almighty has set up His system in such a way that if you obey His commands and prohibitions, you begin to experience blessings in this world, and if you do not, you begin to experience hardships in this world...

Prayer is one of them.

Not only is prayer in itself good for the human psyche, but the time of the morning prayer is precisely the time when nature begins to come alive and joy and peace are at their peak. And even if the person who wakes up at this time does nothing, he will still be filled with the joy of living. And if he performs his prayers, his happiness, peace and joy will grow exponentially.

In addition, the time of Maghrib prayer is also a time of peace, introspection and relaxation. By praying at this time, right on time, you will be able to maximize the benefits of this transitional phase and minimize the problems that may arise from it.

In other words, praying 3 times a day will provide you with countless material and spiritual benefits. It will enable you to perceive its traces in this world even before you go to paradise. The benefits to your physical and mental health are countless. I don't even need to mention again the real beauties of the work such as good deeds and getting closer to Allah.

And if you don't do this, apart from the reward and servitude part of it, what will you miss in terms of worldly blessings?

This is what happens; you start looking for help from yoga, meditation, stimulation of your energy point on your forehead (Shirodhara), as Westerners and Far Easterners are doing now. You will be swimming in depression and stress, and you will be in a hurry to look for the beauty of prayer in these methods. In fact, if there is a craze for meditation, a craze for yoga, a craze for Shirodhara in today's world, it is because of the search for prayer. It is the lack of it.

You can find the "Shirodhara" technique, the real name in Ayurveda, on the internet, on search engines, and you can examine it.

And today people are in a rush to get up and do yoga in the morning just in time for the sunrise. Because they think it makes them more peaceful and reduces their stress and depression.

And they call this cleansing gymnastics in the morning at the time of sunrise "sun salutation". And again, if you study this yoga practice, you will see that the movements are very similar to salaat.

In the same way, in the evening there is a similar yoga exercise, and people are trying to achieve peace and health.

And apart from that, they usually try to meditate twice a day.

And again, people are actually looking for prayer/salaat. They are struggling to attain the beauties and blessings it will give. But unfortunately they are looking for this happiness in the wrong place.

So, if we say that prayer is superior to practices like meditation and yoga, then there must be some concrete evidence to confirm this.

Yes, there is. As even Dr. Deepak Chopra(now he is Muslim), an ayurvedic expert, admits and even writes about in some of his books, the longest-lived people in the world are usually Muslims. And these people have achieved this not through meditation or superfoods like ginseng, like the Far Easterners, but through rituals like prayer and fasting and foods like yogurt and red meat.

In today's geography, societies with long-lived individuals called "super centenarians" can be found in places like Georgia and Azerbaijan. They live especially in mountainous areas. But since their genes are mixed, scientists explain their longevity not by genetic factors but by their way of life.

The longest known long-lived person is the Azerbaijani Shirali Mislimov. He is said to have passed away in 1973 at the age of 168.

The healthy people of the town of Lerik on the Azerbaijan-Iran border are especially noteworthy.

In fact, the benefits of prayer and fasting are now being discovered by the scientific world. They are more beneficial for health and quality of life than yoga and other techniques.

We hope that people all over the world will discover the prayer they have been searching for without realizing it and take another step towards true happiness and salvation.

I am sure you all know that Prophet Mohamed was illiterate.

•   Isaiah (29:12) And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.”

Therefore, Prophet Mohamed fulfilled the prophecy in Isaiah, because Jesus was a teacher which means he was literate. Isaiah says that the prophet will be illiterate. This is to prove that God was speaking about another man other than Jesus.

Cheers and keep in mind that the fire of hell is not for a few moments and you exit, it’s FOREVER.

Peace Fadi

No, in these 2 verses it says that heaven and hell is not a law that happens by itself, it happens because Allah willed it so with His free will. If you notice, the same expression is used for those in heaven.

Here Allah Almighty is telling us what He will do in the future.

And He says "unless I will otherwise, I will never remove those in Paradise".

And he promises he won't.

In other words, "I can change this judgment if I want to, but those in Paradise will stay there forever because I freely willed that they should stay there."

By the way, paradise and hell are in the Hereafter Universe called the Floor of the Lord (Indallah). It exists even now and there are planets in that universe. The heaven and earth refer to that Hereafter Universe and the planets in it, of course, and they are eternal.

By the way, the verses repeatedly say that a person who enters hell will never enter paradise. The only way out for those in hell is to perish with hell, that is, to taste eternal death.

Peace be upon you,

Regarding your argument that some Muslims will not enter hellfire for a limited time, and the sinners among Muslims will be punished on earth before they die is incorrect. Many Muslims will enter hellfire but for a limited time according to their sins if God decided not to forgive them.

God said in Quran that those who will enter hellfire will abide in it as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what God will. The meaning of “they will abide in it as long as the heavens and the earth endure” does not mean the earth we live on today or the heaven we see in our naked eyes. It will be different earth and heavens because God said in Quran that He will replace the earth and heavens. Also the meaning of “they will abide in it as long as the heavens and the earth endure” is “will abide in it forever” 

•   Quran (14:48) [It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah, the One, the Prevailing.

The meaning of “except what God will” is “except they will NOT abide in hellfire forever e.g. will enter hellfire temporary and then exit and enter paradise forever”.

God also said that those who will enter paradise will abide in it as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what God will. The meaning of “they will abide in it as long as the heavens and the earth endure” is “they will enter paradise immediately forever and will not be punished in hellfire”. And the meaning of “except what God will” is “they will NOT enter paradise immediately and they will be punished temporarily in hellfire and then enter paradise”.

•   Quran (11:106) As for those who were [destined to be] wretched, they will be in the Fire. For them therein is [violent] exhaling and inhaling.
•   (107) [They will be] abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what your Lord should will. Indeed, your Lord is an effecter of what He intends.
•   (108) And as for those who were [destined to be] prosperous, they will be in Paradise, abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what your Lord should will - a bestowal uninterrupted.

Please feel free to reply with support "Verses" from Quran if you disagree.

God said in Quran that Christians and Jews know that Mohamed is the Prophet of God and Quran is the Holy Book of God as they know their own children, but they refuse to believe because they are arrogant.

God said in Isaiah that His servant will GROW UP in a DRY LAND. Jesus grew up in Nazareth which is a VERY fertile land (with many gardens). While Mohamed grew up in Makkah (Saudi Arabia) which is a desert e.g. dry land.

•   Isaiah (53-2) 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.

Also, God said that His servant will sing a song of praise to God from the EASTERN border of Egypt which is Saudi Arabia where Mohamed came from. But Jesus came from Nazareth which is the NORTH of Egypt.

Kedar is the son of Ishmael. Kedar lived near the eastern border of Egypt which is Saudi Arabia. God said that His servant will sing a song of praise to God in the city where Kedar lived, which is Saudi Arabia.

•   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…

•   Isaiah (42:10-12) Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth…let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice

Do Christians need a magnifier to see these SUPER CRYSTAL CLEAR verses to understand that God was talking about another man other than Jesus? Christians and Jews know all of these facts but they don’t want to believe because they don’t want to follow Mohamed who is an Arab man because they are arrogant and think that they are superior to Arabs.
