As a Muslim, can you tell me how people get to Heaven according to the Bible?

The Quran commands the Jews in verse 5:44 to judge using the Torah. And in the verse 5:47, it commands: "Let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein."

Why does Quran command Christians and Jews to judge by the Gospel and Torah when Muslims say it is corrupted?

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / The Messiah and the Prophet
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:55:11 AM »
You say that, "the awaited Messiah and the awaited "the Prophet" were clearly TWO DIFFERENT PERSONS, who are strangers to each others, and are not from the same bloodline."

I find this interesting because in the scripture you quoted, something doesn't make sense (John 1:19-21).

If the Prophet was to be an Ishmaelite, or a non-Israelite, then why in the world did these Jews ask a fellow Israelite, John, if he were that Prophet to come? Why did they ask John, an Israelite, if he were that Prophet if the Prophet was to be a non-Israelite, a Gentile?

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Jesus will return as an Arab?
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:46:34 AM »
Reading through your article entitled, "Jesus will return as an Arab, not as an Israeli (or Israelite)!", I found something interesting. You say that Jesus will return as an Arab since the scripture says, "For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man."

I would like to shed some light on this scripture. First, this scripture has already been fulfilled. The "coming" described here is the coming of Jesus in judgement on Jerusalem, which happened in 70 AD. This is not a scripture directed to Christians 2000+ years into the future. This prophecy has been fulfilled, therefore, it cannot mean what you say it means. Let us examine the scriptures:

Matthew 24:25-27
25 See, I have told YOU ahead of time.
26 “So if anyone tells YOU, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.
27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

Who is the "YOU" Jesus is speaking to? Is it Christians 2000+ years into the future? No. It is his disciples. This scripture is not future, it is past.

Now, for V.27. Jesus had just finished telling His disciples not to believe it when someone tells them that they saw Jesus in the wilderness, or that they saw him in the inner rooms because when He returns, it will not be mistaken or a rumor. This phrase, "For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west" is not designed to denote the quarter from which he would come (East, West, North, South), but the manner. He does not mean to affirm that the "Son of man" will come from the "East," but that he will come in a rapid and unexpected manner, like the lightning. Many would be looking for him in the desert, many in secret places; but he said it would be useless to be looking in that manner; it was useless to look to any particular part of the heavens to know where the lightning would next flash. In a moment it would blaze in an unexpected part of the heavens, and shine at once to the other part. So rapidly, so unexpectedly, in so unlooked-for a quarter, would be his coming.

You see, it must be read in context and we must look at history to see if Biblical prophecies have been fulfilled and this one has been.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Muslims and non-Muslim friend/spouse
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:35:21 AM »
Hello!

Thank you for all your hard work on this website. I am a Christian, but have been interested to know what Muslims believe. A website like this takes a lot of time and hard work, so thank you for that!

In your article entitled, "Can Muslims take non-Muslims as friends?", you say, "It is clear that Islam doesn't prohibit personal friendships with Jews and Christians or any other people." You also say, "Muslim men are allowed to marry Jewish and Christian women."

But in your article entitled, "Marriage in Islam", you say, "If we are not allowed to take the Jews and Christians as friends and protectors, do you think we should consider marrying from them?"

That is a contradiction. Can you clarify, please?

Thank you!
