I banned the weasel who pretended to be a Muslim, dear brother Sama, and I put my link instead.  LOL

Indeed, has www.answering-islam.com been refuted??

Pease be upon you,

You have the right to know:

The Bible says that Jesus did not come to bring peace on earth but a sword. This means that Jesus is a dictator.
 
•   Matthew (10:34) Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

The Quran “Holy Book of Muslims” says that Jesus is blessed wherever he is, and peace is on him everywhere.

•   Quran (19:30-34) [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.

Did Jesus rise from the dead?

Christians believe that Jesus rose from the dead. But, according to the Bible, Jesus did not die. When the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus to give them a sign to convince them that he was the Messiah, Jesus gave them 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 that the Son of Man [Jesus] will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

1.   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.”

2.   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.

3.   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.

Jonah’s story: God told Jonah to go to Nineveh to preach to the wicked, but Jonah fled to another city, Tarshish. When he got into the boat, God sent a great wind on the sea to punish him. The people on the boat threw a lot to find out who was responsible for this catastrophe “the high wind” because they were superstitious. The lot fell on Jonah, and they threw him into the sea. He was swallowed by the whale, and he remained in its stomach for three days and three nights. He prayed from inside the whale and God answered his prayer and commanded the fish to vomit him.

•   Jonah (2:1-2) From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. And he said: “I cried out to the LORD because of my affliction, And He answered me. “Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, And You heard my voice

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

Jonah prayed to God from inside the whale and cried. This means that Jonah was alive in the belly of the whale. If Jonah died when the whale swallowed him and then resurrected inside its belly, this means that he will die twice because the whale vomited him on the ground. This means that he returned to live normally like every human and he will die again like everyone else. But God said in Hebrews that man will die only once. This proves that Jonah did not die when the whale swallowed him and then resurrected inside its belly.

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

So Jonah was alive when they threw him into the sea “entered the sea”, and he was alive when the whale swallowed him, and he was alive inside the belly of the whale, and he was alive when the whale vomited him. Let us return to the sign that Jesus gave to the Pharisees and teachers of the law, which is Jonah will be three days and three nights inside the belly of a huge fish, so that the son of man [Jesus] will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. We conclude from this that Jonah entered the sea alive, so Jesus entered the heart of the earth alive. Jonah was three days and three nights alive in the belly of the whale, so Jesus was three days and three nights alive in the heart of the earth. The whale vomited Jonah alive on the ground, so Jesus came out from the heart of the earth alive, not dead. Therefore, the claim of Christians that Jesus raised from the dead is completely false. Please note that Christians believe that the heart of the earth is a tomb. But since he was alive in all conditions, we conclude that the “Heart of the Earth” is a cave, not a tomb.

The Crucifixion:

Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross to bear our sins and that he rose from the dead. But the Bible says that it was not Jesus who was on the cross. God said in Isaiah that His servant will not cry, but the one who was on the cross cried. This is to prove that Jesus was not the one who was on the cross.

•   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?”).

What does the Quran say about crucifixion?

Quran mentions that one of Jesus’ disciples, a Jew and traitor, believed that Jesus was a liar and wanted to kill him to please God, is the one who was put on the cross. God placed Jesus’ gaze on this man and he was crucified. This traitor arranged with his king and told him of the address of Jesus. When they went to crucify Jesus, this man knocked on Jesus’ door and asked him to come out because he wanted to talk to him. But God told Jesus everything before their arrival and commanded him not to go out with him. So Jesus told him that he would follow him in a few moments. When this man turned his face to the king and his army, he did not realize that he became like Jesus, they all attacked him assuming he was Jesus and put him on the cross. This man believed that he was a believer and was serving God, when they put him on the cross, he cried out to God and said to Him, why have you forsaken me?

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

Another proof from the Bible that the person who was on the cross is not Jesus:

When they crucified the Jewish man (and everyone assumed he was Jesus because as I mentioned above, God put the likeness of Jesus on this man) and buried him, Mary Magdalene went to visit the tomb on the third day and was stunned when she found the tomb opened and empty. She cried and started looking for Jesus everywhere while crying. If Jesus told people that he will rise from the dead, she should have rejoiced when she did not find him in the tomb. When she found Jesus, he told her that he had not yet ascended to the Father. Christians believe that Jesus rose from the dead and remained on earth for a while and then ascended to heaven to God. If this is true, why did she cry when she did not find him in the tomb and was stunned when she found him alive? If Jesus was going to rise from the dead, he should have told the people about it, and Mary is supposed to be normal when she found him. When Jesus told Mary that he had not yet ascended to the Father means that he did not die yet. This is to prove that Jesus was not the one who was on the cross.

In verse 13, Mary asks where they have laid Jesus while crying. This means that she was looking for the other tomb that they put him in, which means she was looking for a dead Jesus.

•   John (20:13) They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.”

In next verse, Mary saw Jesus but could not recognize him.

•   John (20:14) Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus

In next verse, Jesus spoke to Mary but could not recognize his voice and thought he is the gardener. The question is
how a woman who has known Jesus for so many years and stood with him face to face could not recognize him and thought he is the gardener. This is because Jesus was disguised himself (dressing similarly) as a gardener and spoke with a different accent. Why did Jesus disguise, this is because he was afraid, because he knew that they were looking for him to kill him. Mary told him “Sir, if you have carried him” which indicates that she meant a dead body because we only carry the dead, but the living can walk. This means she was looking for a dead Jesus.

•   John (20:15) Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”

In next verse, Jesus spoke to Mary while she is still crying in his natural accent and called her only by her name, the moment she heard his voice, she recognized him immediately but was stunned to discover that he is alive. If Jesus told people that he will rise from the dead, she supposed to be natural.

•   John (20:16) Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher)

In next verse, since Mary was shocked to discover that Jesus was alive, she either touched him on his hands or arms by an accident. Jesus instructed her not to touch him. The reason why Jesus instructed her not to touch him is that in Islam a man is not allowed to touch (like shaking hands) a foreign woman other than his wife, mother, sister, daughter, niece, aunt and grandmother. Then Jesus told her that he had not yet ascended to God. This means that he is not dead yet. Therefore, the person who was on the cross was not Jesus.

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

Also when Jesus appeared to the disciples, they were stunned and terrified and thought he is a ghost. Again, if Jesus told them that he would rise from the dead, why were they afraid and thought he is a ghost? This is quite clear evidence that when Jesus came to them, he did not come from the dead, and the person they saw on the cross was not Jesus. Since they saw someone who looked like Jesus on the cross, they assumed that Jesus was dead and they buried him, for this reason they thought Jesus is a ghost when they saw him again.

•   Luke (24:36-37) While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.

In next verses, Jesus tries to comfort them and convince them that he is not a ghost and he is alive.
 
•   Luke (24:38-39) He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”

Therefore, other verses in the Bible that say Jesus will die on the cross and rise from the dead have been modified because these verses contradict the verses I mentioned above.

The Savior:

Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross to bear our sins. As I explained above that Jesus was neither crucified nor dead, therefore Christians misunderstood the meaning of “God has laid on him the iniquity of us all” and assumed that God meant that Jesus will be a savior who would bear our sins.

•   Isaiah (53:6) 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

The correct meaning of “God has laid on him the iniquity of us all” is that God entrusted him with the responsibility of preaching His message to the Israelites, or that God will hold him accountable for our sins. However, Jesus preached the message of God to the people of Israel. Evidence that Christians have misunderstood the meaning of
the savior is found in Ezekiel which says that an evil person needs to turn away from his/her sins, repent and do good deeds in order to be forgiven. God did not say that we need a savior to bear our sins.

•   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!

•   Proverbs (28:13) Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy

Christians believe that Psalm 53 and Romans (3:10-20) say “No one is righteous, no, not one… no one does good, not even one…” and because the Bible says that God loved the world, that He gave His only son (Jesus), and because the Bible says that Jesus is a savior, so they assumed that Jesus was a savior.

•   John (3:16) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

•   1 John (4:14) We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world

But Christians misunderstood the meaning of “God loved the world” and assumed that God’s love was unconditional. But the Bible says that God’s love is conditional on those who keep the commandments. Therefore, for those who don’t keep the commandments, God does not love them. So we understand from this that Jesus is the savior of only those who keep the commandments only. 

•   John (14:21) Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”

Then after the verse that says Jesus is the savior, it says that we rely on the love God has for us. And God loves only those who love Him. Those who love God keep the commandments. Therefore, for those who don’t keep the commandments, God does not love them.

•   1 John (4:16) And so we know and rely on the love God has for us

•   Proverbs (8:17) I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

The meaning of “God gave his only son” is that God offered Jesus to teach people the commandments, which include repentance and good deeds then they will have eternal life.

Psalm 53 and Romans (3:10-20) say that there is no one on earth who does good, but prophet Abraham, Moses, Isaac, etc., did some good deeds. Although they committed some sins, but also did some good deeds, they at least preached the message of God to people. Therefore, we conclude that Psalm 53 and Romans (3:10-20) have been modified and contained errors.

Evidence is also found in Ezekiel which says that no one bears anyone’s sins. Each person is responsible for his/her work. Then when the Bible says “whoever believes in him” and “the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all”, we see from this that Christians misunderstood their meanings when they claimed that Jesus is a savior.

•   Ezekiel (18:20) The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

Then the next verse in Ezekiel says that good deeds will erase your sins, and that is exactly what the Quran says.

•   Ezekiel (18:22) None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live

Jesus said if you don’t believe what Moses wrote, that means you don’t believe in Jesus. As I mentioned above,
Moses wrote that no one will bear the sin of another human being. This means if you believe that Jesus is your savior, then you are not a believer in Jesus.

•   John (5:45-47) “But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set. If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?”

Christians have also misunderstood the meaning of “Jesus gave his life as a ransom” and assumed that this meant that he died on the cross to bear our sins. As I explained above, no one will bear the sin of another one, therefore, the true meaning is that Jesus devoted his life to preaching the gospel and did not give up when they tortured him.

•   Matthew (20:26) Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

In Islam, God does not expect people to be perfect, but He expects them to keep asking for forgiveness when they sin. Prophet Mohamed said that everyone makes sins which mean that humans are not perfect and will commit sins constantly. He also said that if we don’t sin, God will replace us with other people who sin and ask for forgiveness and God will forgive them. When the Prophet said this, he did not mean to encourage people to sin deliberately, but he meant to give us hope that God will forgive us if we ask for forgiveness each time we sin. The sinners should say in their hearts, “God, forgive me,” but they must be sincere and strive not to sin again, but we will remain sinning, so we have to keep asking for forgiveness each time we sin and God will always forgive us because He is Forgiving.

•   Prophet Mohamed said: All children of Adam make sins, and the best of sinners are those who 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.

•   Quran (39:53) Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”

Muslims believe that God will count a sin as one point and a good deed as ten rewards. For example, if you say good morning to your kids or neighbours, you will get ten rewards. If you cook for yourself or your family, you will get ten rewards. But if you don’t feed the dog and make him hungry, you will lose one credit. Don’t you think in this case that God is very Merciful in Islam? Muslims also believe that good deeds will erase sins.

•   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.

Just in the case of a Muslim helping the needy, they will receive seven hundreds rewards and God may increase them. What mercy do you expect more than this? Just for giving a needy person a sandwich or a glass of water, you will receive at least seven hundreds rewards.

•   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.

Who is the man that God spoke of in Isaiah and Deuteronomy?

According to a few verses from the Bible, the man God spoke of is clearly not Jesus. Please note that Jesus is the Messiah “servant and prophet of God”, but in these specific verses, God meant a man other than Jesus.

•   Isaiah (53:9) 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.

The verse says that he was assigned a grave. Christians believe that Jesus had a grave for three days and then rose. However, as I demonstrated above that Jesus was not crucified and did not die and that the heart of the earth that he entered was not a grave but a cave, therefore Jesus did not have a grave. If Christians disagree with this, then you have to understand that when God has assigned for him a grave means that the grave is permanent until the Day of Judgment so that whoever wants to see can see it. However, Prophet Mohamed has a permanent grave until today. 

•   Isaiah (53:10) 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

The verse says that he will see his offspring, but Jesus had no children while Muhammad had. Christians believe that the meaning of “offspring” is “spiritual offspring”, those who believe in Jesus. Please note that the verse does not say spiritual, and this is an assumption made by Christians to make it fit their belief. The verse clearly says “God will prolong his days” which means that God will make him live longer to show him his offspring in his naked eyes.

Christians misunderstand the Book of Revelation (21:7) when it says “I will be their God and they will be my children” and assumed that it is Jesus who said this. If you read verse 2 in the same chapter, you will find that it is God who addresses Jesus. Please note that the verse says “I saw” which is “Jesus saw” the new Jerusalem coming down from heaven “from God”.

•   Revelation (21:2) I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

Then the following verses say, “He said to me” which is “God said to Jesus”: I will be their God and they will be my children. The verse says that the victorious will be the children “lovers” of God, not children of Jesus.

•   Revelation (21:6-7) He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.

Please note that King James Bible “KJB” translated verse 2 above as “And I John saw the holy city...” and then translated verse 7 as “I will be his God, and he will be my son”. KJB translated the verse that John will be the son of God who is one person, while other translators have translated the verse without mentioning any names and in plural as “I will be their God and they will be my children”. If we assume that KJB is the accurate translation, it would mean that only John will be the son of God, not all those who believed in Jesus. This proves that the Christians’ assumption that “he will see his offspring” means his “spiritual offspring” is incorrect. Various translations of the Bible also prove that the Bible is incorrect and contains errors.

Christians also misunderstood Galatians (3:26) which says that we are sons of God through faith in Jesus Christ. The verse does not say that we are sons of Jesus, but sons of God. The meaning of “through faith in Christ Jesus” is by believing that Jesus is the Messiah “a prophet and servant of God” and by following his teaching.

•   Galatians (3:26) For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus

•   Matthew (21:11) And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee

Jesus clearly referred to himself in the Bible as a Prophet of God when some Pharisees told Jesus to leave because Herod wants to kill him.

•   Luke (13:31) At that time some Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, “Leave this place and go somewhere else. Herod wants to kill you.”

Then in verse 33, Jesus replied that a prophet should not die outside Jerusalem. Jesus identified himself as a Prophet. 

•   Luke (13:33) Nevertheless, I must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.’ 

Christians believe that Isaiah (53:9) says “He was assigned a grave with the wicked… though he had done no violence”, and that Prophet Mohamed was engaged in many battles. Please note that Mohamed did not initiate any violence, he was only fighting in self-defense. Christians claim that it didn’t matter whether he was engaged in violence in self-defense or not, the bottom line is that he was engaged in violence. Well, the Bible says that Jesus was engaged in violence as well because he commanded people to sell their clothes and buy swords. Swords are used in battles to kill people. This proves that neither Jesus nor Mohamed fought in any battle except in self-defense, and this is not considered violence in the law of God because God allowed humans to fight for self-defense.

•   Luke (22:36) Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.

God told Moses in Deuteronomy (18:18) that He will send a prophet.

•   Deuteronomy (18:18) I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers…

God said that the prophet would be like Moses, but Jesus is different from Moses because Jesus was born without a father, only from a mother, but Moses was born from a father and a mother. This is evidence that God meant a prophet other than Jesus. Christians believe that the meaning of “like you” is that he would be a preacher like Moses. But God said in the beginning of the verse that he would be a prophet, and the duty of the prophet is to preach mankind the message of God.

God told Moses that the Prophet would be from their brothers. Christians misunderstood the meaning of “brothers” and assumed that it would be from the brothers of the Israelis, the house of Jacob, because of these verses:

1.   Deuteronomy (18:15) The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers - it is to him you shall listen

Please note that God first said “from among you” which means from the family of Prophet Abraham. Muslims,
Christians and Jews are all from the same family because Prophet Abraham is our father. Then, God made it clear and said “from your brothers”. Isaac and Ishmael are sons of Prophet Abraham. Jesus is from Isaac’s descendants, and Mohamed is from Ishmael’s descendants. Therefore, the prophet will come from Ishmael’s decedents and not from Isaac’s descendants because Ishmael is the brother of Isaac.

2.   Deuteronomy (17:15) you may indeed set a king over you whom the LORD your God will choose. One from among your brothers you shall set as king over you. You may not put a foreigner over you, who is not your brother

Christians also misunderstood the meaning of “foreigner” and assumed that he would not be from any other nation than the Israelis. As I explained above, Ishmael is the brother of Isaac and he is not a foreigner.

•   Genesis (25:9) Isaac and Ishmael, his [Abraham] sons, buried him in the cave of Machpelah…

Kedar is the son of Ishmael. Kedar lived near the eastern border of Egypt which is Saudi Arabia where Mohamed lived. The Servant whom God will send will sing a song of praise to God in the city where Kedar lives.

•   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…

•   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…

Please note that Genesis says that this song of praise will be sung from the eastern border of Egypt which is Saudi Arabia from which Prophet Mohamed came. But Jesus came from Nazareth which is north of Egypt. The proof that the prophet will come from Ishmael’s decedents, not from Isaac’s descendants is in Genesis (17:20) which says that the offspring of Ishmael will be a great nation e.g. winners of paradise.

•   Genesis (17:20) “And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.”

Then in the next verse, God said that He will establish His covenant with Isaac.

•   Genesis (17:21) “But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.”

Although God said that He will establish His covenant with Isaac, but his descendants did not keep this covenant and violated it. That is why Jesus told them that the kingdom of God will be taken away from them and will be given to another nation.

•   Matthew (21:43) Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it.

The nation that Jesus meant is not Christians because the origin of Christians is from the same nation of Israel, the descendants of Isaac, because Jesus is from the descendants of Isaac, and Genesis says that this great nation will be from the descendants of Ishmael. This proves that Mohamed is the prophet that God spoke of in the Old Testament.

God said He would send a prophet to the nations. “Nations” is plural which means many nations. But Jesus came to one nation only that is “Israel”, which is single nation. This proves that God meant a prophet other than Jesus.

•   Isaiah (42:6) I am the LORD; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations.

•   Matthew (15:24) Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep - the people of Israel.”

On the other hand, God said in Quran that He sent Prophet Mohamed to all nations.

•   Quran (7:158) Say, [O Muhammad], “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death.” So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided.

The proof that this man is Mohamed is in Deuteronomy (18:20) which says that if any liar claims to be a prophet, God will kill him. However, God did not kill Mohamed. He survived for 22 years until he delivered the Quran to mankind. Keep in mind that Mohamed was involved in many battles, but God saved him.

•   Deuteronomy (18:20) But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’

Also God said in Deuteronomy (13:1-5) not to listen to any prophet who asks you to worship other gods. But Prophet Mohamed asked us to worship the God that Prophet Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Jacob, etc worshipped. Verse 5 also says that you must put a false prophet to death. But as I said above, God did not give the power to anyone to kill Prophet Mohamed.

•   Deuteronomy (13:5) That prophet or dreamer must be put to death for inciting rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. That prophet or dreamer tried to turn you from the way the Lord your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.

The Bible says that a Counselor will come after Jesus’ departure. Christians believe that this Counselor is the Holy Spirit. Please note that the Holy Spirit was present in the hearts of believers since Moses, David and earlier, and there is no reason for Jesus to ask God to send the Holy Spirit back because it was already there before the departure of Jesus. This is to prove that Jesus meant someone else other than the Holy Spirit.

•   John (16:7) Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send him to you.

•   Numbers (27:18) And the LORD said to Moses: “Take Joshua the son of Nun with you, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand on him;

•   Samuel (16:13) Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel arose and went to Ramah.

The Bible says that the Counselor will tell us about the future. Well, Quran that was sent to Prophet Mohamed told us many miracles about the future that was recently discovered with technology. This technology was not available at the time of Prophet Mohamed. To name one, 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. Don’t you think that this is a proof that Mohamed told us about the future through God. https://www.bing.com/search?q=Seven+layers+of+earth&cvid=03ab05869de64da8bccff75141edfb67&aqs=edge..69i57j0j69i59j0l6.4175j0j1&pglt=43&FORM=ANNTA1&PC=U531

•   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.

•   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.

Since God said that the seven earths are like the seven heavens and in another verse He said that the heavens are in layers, therefore, the seven earths are also in layers.

The question is how Mohamed knew these miracles? Non-Muslims believe that the evil angels or Satan passed these secrets to Mohamed so that people would believe that he is a prophet. But when Mohamed told the people about these miracles, the disbelievers mocked him and accused him of being crazy. So if Satan is the one who passed on these secrets to Mohamed, then he did nothing because these secrets discouraged people from believing Mohamed.
 
•   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 knew the secrets that were mentioned in Quran if the Bible says that no one has the ability 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.

The Bible also says that the Counselor will glorify “honour” Jesus.

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

Well, Quran honoured Jesus and his mother Mary. God said in Quran that Mary is the most purified woman on earth, and Jesus is distinguished in this world and the hereafter and among those brought near to God.

•   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 (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].

The Bible says that the Counselor will testify about Jesus.

•   John (15:26) But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

The Bible says many offensive statements about Jesus such as Jesus refusing to help a dying child because she was not Israeli and insulting her by calling her names. This means that Jesus was racist and rude. On the other hand, Quran that God sent to Mohamed testified about Jesus and said that Jesus was very beneficial to everyone, he even asked God to send food from heaven to the people whom among them were disbelievers to encourage them to believe. God answered Jesus’ call and sent the food from heaven, and told Jesus to tell the disbelievers that if they don’t believe after that, God will punish them a terrible punishment.

•   Matthew (15:22) And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon”

•   Matthew (15:25) The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

•   Matthew (15:26) But Jesus replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

•   Quran (5:114-115) Said Jesus, the son of Mary, “O Allah, our Lord, send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven to be for us a festival for the first of us and the last of us and a sign from You. And provide for us, and You are the best of providers.” Allah said, ‘Indeed, I will send it down to you, but whoever disbelieves afterwards from among you - then indeed will I punish him with a punishment by which I have not punished anyone among the worlds.”

This proves that Prophet Mohamed is the Counselor that the Bible spoke about.

Is Jesus god or son of God?

Christians believe that Jesus is god or son of God “equal to God”. They believe that God came to earth in the form of man “Jesus”. But God said that He is not a man or a son of man, while Jesus referred to himself that he is a man and son of a man. Therefore, Jesus is not God.

•   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?

•   John (8:38-40) I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father. They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.

•   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,

•   John (5:22 and 27) Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

Christians believe that Thomas called Jesus god, therefore, Jesus is god.

•   John (20:28-29) Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

But Exodus also says that Moses is god.

•   Exodus (4:16) He shall speak for you to the people, and he shall be your mouth, and you shall be as God to him.

•   Exodus (7:1) And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.

So, if Jesus is god, and Moses is god, then that means there are two gods. But Jesus told us that there is one God. This proves that the Bible has been modified and contains errors. The translation of “My Lord and my god” is incorrect because Jesus said that he is a man. Therefore, it should be “Sir and my leader”. And also, “I have made thee a god to Pharaoh” should be “I have made thee a preacher to Pharaoh”. 

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

Christians believe that when Jesus said “before Abraham was, I am”, he was referring to the same “I am” used in Exodus (3:14). Therefore, Jesus is god.

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

•   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.’”

If Jesus meant to say that before Abraham was, I am “god”, why did he say in John (5:30) by myself, I can do nothing? God said in the Bible that He is self-sufficient. When Jesus said he could do nothing by himself, he meant that he was dependent on God. If Jesus is dependent 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 or any humans, 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

If Jesus also meant to say before Abraham was, I am “god”, why then did he say 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 has no authority over anything.

•   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

Christians will argue that Jesus has authority because of Matthew (28:18). But the authority that God gave to Jesus is specified in next verse which says that God authorized Jesus to send his disciples to preach to all nations.

•   Matthew (28:18-19) And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
If Jesus meant to say in Matthew (28:18-19) that he had authority and then said in John (14:10) that he had no authority then clearly the Bible contains errors because these verses contradict each other.

Christians will also argue that Jesus was given the authority to judge as in John (5:27). Please note that this authority is based on judging people on earth and telling them if they are sinners and reminding them to repent, not judging people on the Day of Judgment, because Jesus said in John (5:30) I judge only as I hear from God. If these verses mean that Jesus has the authority to judge people on the Day of Judgment, then these verses contain errors because they contradict each other.   

•   John (5:22 and 27) Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man

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. The phrase “I am in the Father” means that he is protected and supported by God and “the Father is in me” means that the love of God is in the heart of Jesus and his only concern is to please God.

•   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” and there is nothing wrong with this because every prophet sent by God to mankind from Adam, Noah, John, Moses, Joseph, etc. was also the way and the truth because all of these prophets preached the message of God to mankind. So they were the way and truth.

Jesus said “No one comes to the Father except through me” which means “through his teaching”. Christians assumed that it means “except through worshiping Jesus” which is entirely false because Jesus clearly testified in the Bible that he is not God. He said “the Lord our God” means his God as well. Please note that Jesus also said that “the Lord is one” which means that Jesus is not part of God i.e. trinity “equal to God”.

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

Christians will argue that John (10:30) says that Jesus and the Father are one, this means Jesus is god. But in the next few 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 that you claim to be God.

•   John (10:30-31) I and my Father are one. 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 said to the Jews, it is not written in your Scriptures that you are all gods. Does this mean that the Jews are gods? No, “gods” mean those who preach the message of God.

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

Jesus also said in John (17:21 and 23) to his disciples Peter, Thomas, Judas, etc. that you are all in me as I am in the Father. Does this mean that these disciples are also gods? No, so when Jesus said “I and my Father are one” he meant to say one in the same purpose not one in nature. One in the same purpose means that both God and His servant Jesus have the same purpose of preaching 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.

The Bible says that Jesus asked God to glorify him with the glory that he had with Him before the world existed. 

•   John (17:5) And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was

But God said in Isaiah that He does not share His glory with anyone. How then God did share His glory with Jesus? As I demonstrated above that Jesus is not God, this will prove that the Bible has been modified and contains errors.

•   Isaiah (42:8) I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols

Christians believe that “in the beginning was the word, the word was God, and the word became flesh” means that Jesus is god. Well, the Bible is the word of God. Does this mean that the Bible is god? No, it simply means that the Bible is the command of God. The meaning of “in the beginning was the word” is “in the beginning was the command”, and the meaning of “the word was God” is “the command was God” which means that everything God commands humans to do is from God, and the meaning of “the word became flesh” means “the command of God became flesh, became man (Jesus)”. When God commands anything, He just says to it be and it becomes.

•   (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 Quran, the angels told Mary that God is giving you the tidings of a “word” from Him whose name is Jesus.
The meaning of “word” is the command or will of God.

•   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…

Then Mary said to the angels, how I would give birth to a child when no man had sex with me? The angels replied, this is God’s decree “command”, when He decrees a thing, He just says “Be” and “it becomes”. So the meaning of
“Word” is decree “command”.

•   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 lord. The meaning of lord in the Bible for Jesus is a servant of God, prophet, teacher, master, 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 misunderstood the meaning of “Jesus is worshipped” and assumed that this means Jesus is god. The meaning of “let all the angels of God worship Him” is “let all angels of God accept him as their leader and listen to him”. God also said in the Quran that He commanded the angels to bow down “prostrate” to Adam. This does not mean that Adam is god or equal to God. It simply means that God wants the angels to take Adam as their 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 in the boat “worshiped him” mean that they listened to him and obeyed him. Please note that they said to him, “you are God’s son”, not “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 called him son of God, then he is equal to God “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 as for Jesus. The meaning of son of God does not mean partner with God or a minor god or equal to God because God said in Isaiah (42:8) that He does not share His glory with anyone. The phrase “son of God” means the person whom God loved and chose from among people to preach his message to 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 the leader; then it says “the star comes to worship him” which means that it comes to accept his teaching and 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.”

Well, if the meaning of “Jesus is worshipped” is that Jesus is god, then 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 “…the words belong to the Father who sent me, not to Jesus”.

•   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 Jesus tell him not to call him good, and commanded him to call God alone 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 not to call him good or he is a man approved by God, he meant to be humbled like a human being. Well, in this case, Jesus misled mankind when he said these statements, and it is impossible that Jesus wants to mislead people. This is just the way Christians think, and this is not from the Bible. There is not a single verse in the Bible in which Jesus himself explicitly states that he is god. In fact, Jesus explicitly admitted in the Bible that he was just a man. On the other hand, Allah clearly referred to himself in Quran that He is God. The word Allah translates to God in Arabic. All Arabic speakers of all faiths call God “Allah” including Christians. However, the concept of Allah for Christians is different that of Muslims. Arabic-speaking Christians believe that Jesus is Allah while Muslims believe that Jesus is not Allah and that Allah is the God that Prophets
Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, Moses, Jesus, etc. worshipped.

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

Christians and Jews believe that their books, the Torah and the Bible, are true because God said in the Quran that the
Jews have the torah, and in it, is the judgment of God. Also God said in the Quran to Christians and Jews to uphold the law of the Torah and the Bible. Therefore, this means the Quran testifies that the Torah and the Bible are true.   

•   Quran (5:43) But how is it that they come to you for judgement while they have the Torah, in which is the judgement of Allah? Then they turn away, [even] after that; but those are not [in fact] believers.
   
•   Quran (5:68) Say, “O People of the Scripture, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord.” And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.

When God in the Quran told Christians to uphold the law of the Bible, He meant to say that you must follow the verses I mentioned above that Jesus is only a prophet and servant of God, not god or son of God e.g. equal to God.

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

When God said in the Quran to the Jews that the Torah contains the judgment of God, He meant to tell the Jews to follow the verses that say not to bow down to anyone other than God, and not to share anyone with Him because He is jealous. But the Jews amended the Torah and claimed that they are the children of God, and God will beckon to the nations to bow down to them with their faces on the ground. In this case, the Jews shared with God the “bowing down” and referred to themselves as sons of God. The Jews claim that when God commands all nations to bow down to them, does not mean worshipping them, but rather humiliating all nations and honor them. Well, the Jews should know that God humiliates and honor anyone in any way He wants but not in that which applies to Him because He is jealous. 

•   Exodus (20:4-5) “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.

•   Isaiah (49:22-23) This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their hips. 23 Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”

Why would Jesus tell Christians on the Day of Judgement to stay away from him?

The Bible says that whoever believes in Jesus will be redeemed by his blood and will be forgiven for their sins.

•   Ephesians (1:7) In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our wrongdoings, according to the riches of His grace

This means that the sinners will be forgiven if they believed in Jesus. So if this verse is true and not modified, why
those who believed in Jesus and performed miracles in his name will not be forgiven, and why would Jesus ask them to stay away from him on the Day of Judgment? This is because Jesus told Christians in Luke (18:19) that he is not God, and commanded them not call him even good, but Christians called him god or son of God, “equal to God.” 

•   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!’

Jesus will also tell Christians that I told you in the previous verse to do the will of the Father “God” in order to enter heaven, but you did the will of Jesus.

•   Matthew (7:21) Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Those who performed miracles mean that they were extremely devoted e.g. they prayed all the time, gave most of their fortune to charity, etc. So, why Jesus will refuse to speak to them and will tell them evildoers? Christians believe that this is because those who performed miracles in Jesus’ name but did not do the will of God were not living a life of obedience. This means that they were sinners, but Jesus said that the sinners will be forgiven through his blood if they believe in him, and those who performed miracles in Jesus’ name absolutely believed in him. This is to prove that “we have redemption through His blood” is incorrect. Also, the Bible says that those who performed miracles in Jesus name even if they are wicked will become righteous in the next moment and will not say anything bad about Jesus.

•   Mark (9:39) “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me”

As I explained above, Jesus is neither God nor son of God i.e. equal to God. He is a prophet of God like Abraham, Moses, Joseph, etc. God said that He is jealous and does not share His glory with anyone. The meaning of “His glory” is His attributes, names, and descriptions. God also commanded us not to misuse His name. This means that God is unique and completely different from all his creatures, and everything that applies to the creatures does not apply to Him. For example, a man has a son, and we say Mike is the son of Dave, so God does not have a son, and it is not permissible for us to say “son” of God. Also a man is the father of a child, and we say that Jason is the father of Derek, so God is not the father of anyone, and it is not permissible for us to call God “father.” The words “son” and “father” contradict the fact that God is jealous and does not share His glory with anyone. However, the Bible says that God forbade people on earth from calling anyone a “father”. But all people on earth are calling men ‘father’ because they have children. And God said that those who misuse His name are guilty. This means that all people are misusing the name of God and therefore we are all guilty. But since people were able to use the name “father”, then this name is not for God. This proves that the translation of the Bible has been modified and incorrect.     

•   Matthew (23:9) And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven

•   Exodus (20:7) You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name

•   Exodus (34:14) for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

•   Isaiah (42:8) I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols

For this reason, Jesus will tell Christians on the Day of Judgment that he never knew them and to stay away from him because they shared him with God. Therefore, if you want to be saved from the fire of hell, you must pray directly to God alone, not through Jesus.

As I explained above, God in Islam is willing to forgive all sins for those who repent and seek forgiveness except for those who share with Him.

•   Quran (4:48) Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.

What is Islam?

Muslims believe that God is One, He is self-sufficient One, He begets not, and neither is He begotten, and there is nothing like Him. We pray to God and call Him for help directly without any intercessor. 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 few, 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.

There are five pillars of Islam:

1.   For a person to be a Muslim, he/she must believe in his/her heart and say the testimony (Shahadah) in his/her tongue: I bear witness that there is no god but one God, and I bear witness that Mohamed is His prophet.

2.   Five daily prayers in the morning, noon, afternoon, evening, and night. Each takes an average of 10 minutes. If anyone is disabled, he/she must pray while sleeping in bed or sitting on a chair but should not avoid it.

3.   Fasting one month in Ramadan from sunrise until sunset without food, water, and sex during this time. If a person is sick and can’t fast, he/she has to fast the missing days after Ramadan. If a person is seriously ill and can’t fast, he/she shouldn’t fast but should feed one poor person for every missing day (average $10 per day). If a person is seriously sick and does not have money, God will not hold him/her accountable. 

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

5.   Pilgrimage: Any person who is physically and financially able to make a jou

Salam alaikum brothers :)
I read some commentaries about Isaiah 42 and i have a question
Is selah that mentioned there is the city of selah in Palestine or selah mountain? I'm confused


Selah in Palestine??  Does the place even exist?  Has any Biblical place in Palestine ever been called Selah?  Tell the these priests lovers, - the  monkeys of the cross, - to read their own Bibles:


Isaiah 42:11
Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice, The villages that Kedar inhabits.  Let the inhabitants of Sela סלע  sing, Let them shout from the top of the mountains.

סלע:

ס = S
ל = L
ע = A





Kedar is in Saudi Arabia, and Sela is also in Medina.  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, made history-shaping prophecies that brought down entire empires on this mountain.

As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers,

The following will provide further proofs that it is Arabia, insha'Allah:

Isaiah 30:6 The burden upon the south.

Isaiah 30:27
27 Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far (Far from Palestine.  Mecca is 900+ miles far, and it is in the south)

Isaiah 21:13
13 The burden upon Arabia....

See also other Arabian regions prophecies in details throughout the Bibles such as:

Dedan
Kedar (name of one of Ishmael's sons)
Dumah

Wa alaikum assalam

Both are called so; but the context tells us everything.


The prophecy of Isaiah 42 about the Prophet:

1. Lives where Kedar the son of Ishmael [Genesis 25:13]
2. Kedar from Arabia [Ezekiel 27:21]
3. Will live besides Sela (mountain in Arabia)
4. He will sing a new song (law)
5. Will be sent from Gentiles not Jews
 NOT TO THE LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL Matthew (15:24)
6. Man of war (Isaiah 42:13)
7. Will be sent to idol worshipers (Isaiah 42:17)

Who is this man?

Holy Quran
2:57 We shaded you with clouds, and sent down to you manna and quails, "Eat from the goodness of the provisions We have provided you." They did not wrong Us, but they wronged themselves.

2:58 We said, "Enter this town, and eat from it as plentifully as you wish; and enter the gate humbly, and talk amicably, We will then forgive your mistakes, and We will increase for the good-doers."

2:59 But the wicked altered what was said to them into a different saying, thus We sent down upon the wicked an affliction from the sky because they had transgressed.

2:60 Moses was seeking water for his people, so We said, "Strike the rock with your staff." Thus, twelve springs burst out of it; each tribe then knew from where to drink. "Eat and drink from God's provisions, and do not roam the earth as corruptors."

2:61 You said, "O Moses, we will not be patient to one type of food, so call for us your Lord that He may bring forth what the earth grows of its beans, cucumbers, garlic, lentils, and onions." He said, "Would you trade what is lowly with what is good?" Descend to Egypt, there you will find what you want. They were thus stricken with humiliation and disgrace, and they remained under God's wrath for they were not appreciating God's signs, and killing the prophets with no justification. This is for what they have disobeyed and transgressed

Here, the Israelites do not like manna, an extraordinary food specially produced for them, and they want to turn to other foods of inferior quality.

At first glance this may seem to some to be "wanting variety and richness". But no, a hundred kinds of tents are not worth one luxury villa or castle. If you choose a hundred kinds of tents over a castle, you are choosing poverty and misery, not riches.

"Exchanging an inferior blessing for a superior one" is self-cruelty.

And choosing misery and oppression over happiness and pleasure is deviation.

So self-persecution is not virtue, it is cruelty.

So we have to choose the good, the beautiful and the happy for ourselves and for all humanity.

The way to go to heaven in the hereafter is to offer beauty to ourselves and humanity in this world.

In other words, avoiding suffering and evil.

The Qur'an "shows what are the 'true interests' of human beings" and "shows the means of achieving these interests, of attaining lasting salvation. "

Some of the commands and prohibitions that seem like sacrifices are actually desires that in the long run provide pleasure and benefit both in this world and in the hereafter.

Those who play chess know well that you can bait a queen and checkmate your opponent after a few moves. Taking that queen may seem like a win for the opponent at the time, but after a few moves it will turn into a great misery for him.

The Qur'an warns people against such traps, and shows them how to "checkmate", that is, how to win in the end and avoid suffering.
