Rebuttal to Craig Winn "Prophet of Doom: CHRISTIANS" article:
The following article is a rebuttal to Craig Winn's article that is located at: http://www../quotes5.html#christians.
Important Note to the Reader:
Craig Winn purposely twisted and modified the English translations that he used! He changes words in translations and uses non-Muslim ones. I've noticed this a lot through his translations of the Noble Verses that he used from the Noble Quran.
List of Craig Winn's fabricated lies and deliberate alteration of quotes, WITH CLEAR-CUT PROOFS!
Noble Verse 5:51 is a mistranslation, because Muslim men are allowed to marry from Jewish and Christian women. Marriage doesn't happen in enmity. It happens in love. In Islam, marriage can not be forced, and even if it could, no free Jewish or Christian woman would marry a man (Muslim or not) whom she has enmity with or she hates.
Noble Verse 5:51 says "awliyaa", which can mean "friends" as in "personal friends", but it also means "ALLIES", and the Noble Verse came after the Jews and Christians betrayed the Prophet peace be upon him and the Muslims. So it is clearly referring to prohibiting us from making MILITARY ALLIANCE WITH THE HYPOCRITES AND BETRAYERS back then.
To the reader, please visit:
Does Islam really order Muslims to not take Jews and Christians and non-Muslims as personal friends?
The woman can not be forced into marriage in Islam!
Quran 5:72 They are surely infidels who blaspheme
and say: God is Christ, the Messiah, the son of Mary. But the Messiah
only said: O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.
Quran 74:31 We have appointed nineteen angels to be the wardens of the Hell Fire. We made a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve and We have fixed their number as a trial for unbelievers in order that the People of the Book may arrive with certainty, and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book, those in whose hearts is a disease.
Ishaq:180 According to my information, the Apostle often sat by a young Christian slave named Jabr. The Meccans said, He is the one who teaches Muhammad most of what he brings. Then Allah revealed, Quran 16:103 We know what they (pagans) say: It is only a mortal man who teaches him (Muhammad). But the tongue of the man they wickedly point to is notably foreign, while this (Quran) is pure Arabic.
Quran 72:15 But the Qasitun (disbelievers) are the firewood of hell.
Quran 88:1 Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces (Jews and Christians) that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a boiling hot spring.
Quran 9:29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, who do not forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, or acknowledge the Religion of Truth (Islam), (even if they are) People of the Book (Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission, feeling themselves subdued and brought low. [Another translation says:] pay the tax in acknowledgment of our superiority and their state of subjection.
Ishaq:552 The Quraysh had put pictures in the Kaaba including two of Jesus and one of Mary. Muhammad ordered that the pictures should be erased.
Quran 5:14 From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We made a covenant, but they forgot and abandoned a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, stirred up enmity and hatred among them to the Day of Doom. Soon will Allah show them the handiwork they have done.
Quran 5:15 O People of the Book! There has come to you Our Apostle, revealing to you much that you used to hide in your Scripture, suppressing and passing over much. There has come to you from Allah a (new) light (Muhammad) and a clear Book [the Quran].
Quran 5:17 ...Say (Muhammad): Who then has the least power against Allah, if His will were to destroy Christ, the Messiah, the son of Mary, his mother, and everyone else on earth?
Quran 5:18 The Jews and the Christians say: We are sons of Allah, and his beloved. Say: Why then does He punish you for your sins? Nay, you are but men. He forgives whom He wishes and punishes whom He pleases.
Quran 5:35 Believers, fear Allah and seek the way to approach Him, striving hard, fighting Jihad with all your might in His Cause that you may be successful. As for the disbelievers [previously defined as Christians], if they had everything on earth, two times over, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Doom, it would never be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful torment. They will desire to get out of the fire, but they shall not be released from it. They shall have an everlasting torture.
Quran 5:47 Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. If any fail to judge by what Allah has revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.
Quran 5:48 To you [Christians] We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah has revealed.
Quran 5:49 And this (He commands): Judge between them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their [Christian] desires, but beware of them lest they beguile you, seducing you away from any of that which Allah hath sent down to you. And if they turn you away [from being Muslims], be assured that for their crime it is Allahs purpose to smite them. Truly most men are rebellious.
Quran 5:57 Believers, take not for friends those who take your religion for a mockery or sport, a joke, whether among those who received the Scripture before you or among those who reject Faith; but fear Allah.
Quran 5:68 Say: People of the Scripture Book! You have no ground to stand upon unless you observe the Taurat [Torah], the Injeel [Gospel], and all the Revelation that has come to you from your Lord. It is certain to increase their rebellion and blasphemy. But grieve you not over unbelieving people.
Quran 5:72 ...Lo! Whoever joins other gods with Allah or says He has a partner, Allah has forbidden Paradise, and the Hell Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help.
Quran 5:73 They are surely disbelievers who blaspheme and say: God is one of three in the Trinity for there is no Ilah (God) except One, Allah. If they desist not from saying this (blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall themthe disbelievers will suffer a painful doom.
Quran 5:75 The Messiah, Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had to eat their food. See how Allah does make His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded!
Quran 4:157 We [Jews] killed the Messiah, Jesus, but they killed him not, nor crucified him. It appeared so to them (as the resemblance of Jesus was put over another man and they killed that man). Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself. Those who differ with this version are full of doubts. They have no knowledge and follow nothing but conjecture. For surely they killed him not.
Quran 4:171 O People of the Book! Do not exaggerate in your religion; nor speak lies of Allah. The Messiah, Christ Jesus, the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not Trinity. Cease and Desist: (it is) better for you: for Allah is one Ilah (God). (Far it is removed from him of) having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. The Messiah is proud to be a slave of Allah, as are the angels, those nearest. Those who disdain His worship and are arrogant. He will gather them all together unto Himself to (answer) . He will punish with a painful doom; Nor will they find, besides Allah, any to protect or save them.
Quran 4:159 And there is none of the People of the Book but will believe in him (Jesus as only a messenger of Allah and a human being) before his (Jesus) death. He will be a witness against them.
Quran 5:77 Say (Muhammad): People of the Book, do not overstep the bounds in your religion, or follow the people who erred and led many astray. Cursed are the unbelievers among the Children of Israel by David and Jesus.... They do vile things, allying themselves with the infidels so that Allahs indignation is upon them and in torment they will suffer for all eternity. [Another translation reads:] Curses were pronounced on the unbelievers, the Children of Israel who rejected Islam, by the tongues of David and of Jesus because they disobeyed and rebelled.
Quran 5:80 You see many of them allying themselves with the unbelieving infidels. Vile indeed are their souls. Allahs wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide. Quran 5:81 If only they had believed in Allah, in the Prophet, and in what had been revealed to him.
Quran 5:82 You will find the Jews and disbelievers [defined as Christians in 5:73] the most vehement in hatred for the Muslims.
Quran 5:110 And God will say: O Jesus! Recount My favor to you and to your mother. Behold! I strengthened you with the Holy Spirit so that you spoke to the people in the cradle and in the prime of life. Behold! I taught you the law and the judgment, the Torah and the Gospel. And behold, you made out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird and you breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission. And you healed those born blind by My permission and the lepers by My permission. And behold! You raised forth the dead by My permission. And behold! I did restrain the Jews from harming you when you came with clear proofs. And the unbelievers among the Jews said: This is nothing but magic.
Quran 5:111 Behold! I inspired the [Christian] disciples to have faith in Me and My Messenger. They said, We are believers, and bear witness that we prostrate ourselves to Allah as Muslims. Quran 5:112 Behold! The disciples, said: O Jesus, can your Lord send down to us a table well laid out from heaven? Said Jesus: Fear Allah, if you have faith. When the disciples said: O Jesus, son of Mary, is your Lord able to send down for us a table spread with food from heaven? He said: Observe your duty to Allah, if you are true believers. Quran 5:113 They said: We only wish to eat thereof to satisfy our hearts, and to know that you have told us the truth. We want to witnesses a miracle. Said Jesus, the son of Mary: O Allah our Lord! Send us from heaven a table well laid out, that there may be for us a feast, a Sign from you. Quran 5:115 Allah said: I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, resisting Faith [Islam], I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted on any one of my creatures, man or jinn. I will punish them with a torment such as I have not inflicted on any one of my creatures.
Quran 5:116 And behold! Allah will say: O Jesus, the son of Mary! Did you say unto men, worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah? He will say: Glory to You! Never could I utter what I had no right. Quran 5:117 I only said what You (Allah) commanded me to say: Worship Allah, my lord and your Lord. I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them but you took me up. (This is a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole world.)
Tabari IX:15 One of the Ansari who was plundering the slain came upon a Thaqif boy. He discovered that he was an uncircumcised Christian. He uncovered others and then yelled out at the top of his voice, Allah knows that the Thaqif are uncircumcised.
Tabari IX:86 Dont seduce the Jews or Christians for incumbent on them is to pay the jizyah protection tax.
Bukhari:V2B23N414 The Prophet in his fatal illness said, Allah cursed Jews and Christians because they took their Prophets graves as places for praying.
Bukhari:V5B59N727 When Allahs Apostle became seriously sick, he started covering his face with a woolen sheet. When he felt short of breath, he removed it, and said, That is so! Allahs curse be on Jews and Christians.
Bukhari:V4B55N607 Allahs Apostle said, On the night of my Ascension to Heaven, I saw Jesus with a red face as if he had just come out of a bathroom. And I resemble Abraham more than any of his offspring.
Quran 2:111 They say: None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian. Those are their (vain) desires. Say: Produce your proof if you are truthful. Nay, whoever submits His face to Allah and surrenders, he will get his reward; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. The Jews say: The Christians follow nothing; and the Christians say: the Jews follow nothing (true); Yet they (profess to) recite the (same) Scripture Book. But Allah will judge between them in their quarrel.
Quran 9:30 The Jews call Uzair the son of Allah, and the Christians say that the Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying from their mouths; they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allahs (Himself) fights against them, cursing them, damning and destroying them. How perverse are they!
Quran 9:31 They (Jews and Christians) consider their rabbis and monks to be gods besides Allah. They also took their Lord Messiah to be a god but they were commanded (in the Taurat and Injeel) to worship only One Ilah (God). There is no ilah (god) but He. Too holy is He for the partners they associate (with Him).
Quran 9:34 Believers, there are many (Christian) monks and (Jewish) rabbis who in falsehood devour the wealth of mankind and hinder (men) from the way of Allah. And there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in Allahs Cause. (Muhammad) announce unto them tidings of a painful torture. On the Day [of Doom] heat will be produced out of that (wealth) in the Fire of Hell. It will be branded on their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs. This is the (treasure) which you hoarded for yourselves: now taste it!
Quran 2:116 They say: Allah hath begotten a son: glory be to Him. Nay, to Him belongs all that is in heavens and on earth: All are subservient and obedient to Him.
Quran 2:145 Even if you were to bring to the people of the Scripture Book all the Signs, they would not follow Your Qiblah; nor are you going to follow their Qiblah; nor indeed will they follow each others Qiblah.
Quran 2:146 The People of the Book, unto whom We gave the Scripture, know/recognize this revelation/him as they know/recognize their own sons; But lo! a party of them knowingly conceals truth.
Quran 2:71 The semblance of the infidels is one who shouts to one who cannot hear. They are deaf, dumb, and blind. They make no sense.
Quran 2:174 Those who conceal Allahs revelations in the [Bible] Scripture Book, and thus make a miserable profit thereby [selling it to Muhammad], swallow Fire into themselves; Allah will not address them. Grievous will be their doom. Quran 2:175 They are the ones who bartered away guidance for error and Torment in place of Forgiveness. Ah, what boldness (they show) for the Fire! (Their doom is) because Allah sent down the Book in truth but those who seek causes of dispute in the Book are in a schism of great opposition.
Tabari VIII:98 Between the truce of Hudaybiyah and his death, the Messenger dispersed his Companions with letters. I have been sent as a mercy and for all. Therefore, convey the message from me, and Allah shall have mercy on you. Do not become disobedient to me as the Disciples became disobedient to Jesus. He called them to the like of what I called you to. Those whom he sent close by were pleased and accepted; those whom he sent far off were refused. Jesus complained of their behavior to Allah, and when they awoke the next morning, each could speak the language of the people to whom he had been sent. Then Jesus said, This is an affair that Allah has determined for you; so go forth!
Quran 8:50 If you could have seen the infidels when the angels drew away their souls, striking their faces and smiting their backs. The angels said: Taste the penalty of the blazing Fire.
Quran 8:52 They brought this on themselves. Their case is like that of Pharaoh and of those before them. They denied and rejected the revelations of Allah, and Allah destroyed them, punishing them for their crimes: for Allah is strict, severe in punishment.
Quran 61:6 And Jesus, the son of Mary, said: Children of Israel, I am the Messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming that (which was revealed) before me in the Torah, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad, the Praised One. But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, this is sorcery!
Quran 61:14 O Muslims! Be helpers of Allah: As Jesus the son of Mary said to the Disciples, Who will be my helpers (in the Cause) of Allah? Said the disciples, We are Allahs helpers! Then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: But We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the victorious.
Quran 3:37 Mariam was given into the care of Zacharyah. Whenever he came to see her in her chamber he found her provided with food, and he asked, Where has this come from Mary? She said, From Allah who gives in abundance to whomsoever He will. Zacharyah prayed, Bestow on me offspring that is good [i.e., not a girl]. As he stood in the chamber the angels said, Allah sends you tidings of Yahya (John) who will confirm a thing from Allah (the creation of Isa (Jesus), the Word of Allah) and be a noble prophet, one who is upright and does good [a Muslim].
Quran 3:42Quran 3:44 Behold! the angels said: Mariam! Allah has chosen you and purified you above the women of all nations and creation (including jinn). Mary! submit with obedience to your Lord (Allah). Prostrate yourself, and bow down with those [Muslims] who bow down. This is part of the tidings of the things unseen, which you have no knowledge and We reveal unto you (Messenger!) by inspiration. You were not with them when they cast lots with arrows, as to which of them should be charged with the care of Mariam. Nor were you with them when they disputed.
Quran 3:45 Behold, the angels said: O Mariam! Allah gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be the Messiah, Isa (Jesus), the son of Mariam, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of those nearest to Allah.
Quran 4.171 O people of the Book (Christians), do not be fanatical in your faith, and say nothing but the truth about Allah. The Messiah who is Isa (Jesus), son of Mariam, was only a messenger of Allah, nothing more. He bestowed His Word on Mariam and His Spirit. So believe in Allah and say not Trinity for Allah is one Ilah (God) far be it from His Glory to beget a son.
Quran 3:46 And he shall speak to the people when in the cradle and when of old age, and shall be one of the good ones.
Bukhari:V4B55N645 The Prophet said, None spoke in cradle but three: The first was Jesus, the second was an Israeli called Juraij. While he was offering his prayers, his mother called him. He said, Shall I answer her or keep on praying? He went on praying and did not answer her. His mother said, O Allah! Do not let him die till he sees the faces of prostitutes.
Quran 3:47 Mary said: O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me? He said: Even so: Allah creates what He wills: When He has decreed a plan, He but says to it, Be, and it is! Quran 3:48 And Allah will teach him the Scripture Book and Wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel, and appoint him a messenger to the Children of Israel, with this message: Lo! I come unto you with a Sign from your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird, by Allahs leave. I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I raise the dead, by Allahs leave. [As if reading a different Arabic text, the Ali translation says:] He will teach him the Law and the Judgment, the Torah and the Gospel, and he will be Apostle to the children of Israel, (saying) I have come to you with a prodigy from your Lord that I will fashion the state of destiny out of the mire for you and breathe (a new spirit) into it, and (you) will rise by the will of Allah.
Bukhari:V4B55N657 Allahs Messenger said, Isa (Jesus), the son of Mariam, will shortly descend amongst you Muslims and will judge mankind by the law of the Quran. He will break the cross and kill the swine [Jews] and there will be no Jizyah tax taken from non-Muslims. Money will be so abundant no one will accept it. So you may recite this Holy Verse: Isa (Jesus) was just a human being before his death. On the Day of Resurrection he (Jesus) will be a witness against the Christians.
Bukhari:V4B55N658 Allahs Apostle said How will you be when the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you and he will judge people by the Law of the Quran and not by the law of Gospel.
Bukhari:V4B55N651-2 I heard Allahs Apostle saying, I am the nearest of all the people to Jesus. There has been no prophet between me and Jesus. All the prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.
Quran 3:50 (I [Isa/Jesus] have come) to attest the Torah which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah, and obey me. Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.
Bukhari:V4B56N814 There was a Christian who embraced Islam and he used to write the revelations for the Prophet. Later on he returned to Christianity again he used to say: Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him.
Quran 3:52 But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief, he cried: Who will be my helpers in the Allahs Cause? The disciples said: We will be Allahs helpers. We believe in Allah, and do you bear witness that we are Muslims. Quran 3:54 And they (the disciples from the previous verse) schemed, and Allah schemed and plotted (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers. [Another translation reads:] Quran 3:54 Lord, we believe in Your revelations [the Torah and Gospels] and follow this Apostle [Jesus]. Enroll us among the witnesses. But the Christians contrived a plot and Allah did the same; but Allahs plot was the best. [A third translation says that they refers to disbelievers, not the disciples and they plotted to kill Jesus.] And they (disbelievers) plotted (to kill Isa [Jesus]) and Allah plotted too.
Quran 3:55 Allah said, Jesus, I will take you and raise you to Myself and rid you of the infidels (who have forged the lie that you are My son). Those who are infidels will surely receive severe torment both in this world and the next; and none will they have as a savior for them. [Interesting, considering...] Quran 5:72 They are surely infidels who say; God is the Christ, the Messiah, the son of Mary. [Another translation reads:] Quran 3:55 Behold! Allah said: O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow you superior to those who reject faith. Then shall you all return unto me, and I will judge between you on the matters wherein you dispute. [Another:] (Remember) when Allah said: Jesus! Lo! I am gathering you and causing you to ascend unto Me. I am cleansing you of those who disbelieve. [A fourth reads:] When Allah said: Jesus, I am going to terminate the period of your stay (on earth) and cause you to ascend unto Me and purify you of those who disbelieve.... I will decide between you concerning that which you differed.
Quran 3:56 As for those disbelieving infidels, I will punish them with a terrible agony in this world and the next. They have no one to help or save them. Quran 3:58 This is what We rehearse to you of the Signs and Message, a wise reminder. The similitude (likeness) of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: Be. And he was.
Quran 3:60 The Truth (comes) from Allah alone. So be not of those who doubt, waver or dispute. If any one disputes in this matter with you, now after knowledge has come to you, say: Come! Let us gather together our sons and women among ourselves. Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!
Quran 3:61 If anyone disputes with you about Jesus being divine, flee them and pray that Allah will curse them. Quran 3:62 This is the true account, the true explanation: There is no Ilah (God) except Allah; and AllahHe is the Mighty, the Wise. And if they turn away, then lo! Allah is aware of the corrupters, the mischief-makers. Say: O People of the Book, come to common terms as an agreement between us and you: That we all shall worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with him; and that none of us shall take others for lords beside Allah. If then they turn back, say you: Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims surrendered.
Quran 3:67 Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was a true Muslim, surrendered to Allah (which is Islam), and he joined not gods with Allah. Quran 3:69 It is the wish of the followers of the People of the Book to lead you astray. But they make none to go astray except themselves, but they perceive not. You People of the Book! Why reject you the signs, proofs, and verses of Allah, of which you are witnesses? You People of the Book! Why do you clothe Truth with falsehood, and conceal the Truth?
Quran 3:118 O you who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, and Christians). They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin. Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths. What their hearts conceal is far worse. When they are alone, they bite off the very tips of their fingers at you in their rage. Say unto them: Perish in your rage.
Quran 4:48 Allah forgives not that partners [Christ as God] should be set up with Him; but He forgives anything else, to whom He please; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin most heinous.
Quran 4:50 Behold! how they invent lies against Allah! That is flagrant sin.
Quran 4:51 Have you not seen those to whom a portion of the Book has been given? They believe in sorcery and false deities and say of those who disbelieve: these are better guided than those who believe. They are (men) whom Allah has cursed: And those whom Allah has cursed, you will find that they have no savior.
Quran 4:54 Are they jealous and envious what Allah has given them of his bounty? But We had already given the house of Abraham the Book, and conferred upon them a grand kingdom. Some of them believed, and some of them averted their faces from him. And Hell is sufficient for their burning. Those who reject our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire. As often as their skin is burnt and singed, roasted through, We shall change it for fresh skin, so that they may go on tasting the torment.
First of all, as I proved in my previous rebuttals, the Al-Tabari and Ibn-Ishaq and other sources are extremely doubtful and unauthenticated. Most Muslim scholars today firmly and strongly believe in this. Not that the hadiths above are bad or anything, but as most Muslim Scholars agree, we Muslims can't take them as absolute Truth or accurate information. Much of these volumes are either corrupt or taken out of context. Again, this is according to the Muslims scholars. This is why these volumes are considered "unauthenticated".
Also visit: What parts of the Bible and Hadiths do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth, and Why?
Now as to:
Ishaq:552 The Quraysh had put pictures in the
Kaaba including two of Jesus and one of Mary. Muhammad ordered that the pictures
should be erased.
It is only normal and natural for to remove any object (picture, idols, etc...) from the House of GOD Almighty!! Islam is strict and clear about not associating any partners, even in the slightest manners, with GOD Almighty in Worship.
As to the Noble Verses above, I've covered in great details the status of the non-Muslims, Jews and Christians in Islam. From www.answering-christianity.com/blessed_jesus.htm:
The Blessed Jesus peace be upon him and Place of Jews and Christians in Islam:
The sections of this article are:
1- The Blessed Jesus and the Place of Jews and Christians
2- Jesus' place in Islam.
3- Did Jesus say that you must be a Christian or else you will go to hell?
4- Jesus was enforced by the Holy Spirit.
5- Only Allah Almighty is Perfect.
6- What about Jesus' Saying in John 14:5-7?
7- What is the place of the Jews and Christians in Islam?
- The Righteous and Beloved Jews in the Noble Quran.
8- Allah Almighty predicted that Christians would be great, honorable and peaceful people! But this still doesn't guarantee all of them Paradise!
9- Can Muslims be friends with Jews and Christians?
According to the religion of Islam, Prophet Jesus peace be upon him is one of Allah Almighty's Holiest Prophets. He was the last Messenger of GOD to be sent to the people of Israel. He preached the Gospel to his people, which mainly to love and respect others, and to love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Jesus' peace be upon him place in Islam:
As I mentioned above, Prophet Jesus peace be upon him is one of Allah Almighty's Holiest Prophets. It is he who will come to ultimately fight the army of the Devil and defeat it. Allah Almighty will not send Muhammad, nor Moses, nor Noah, nor David, nor Solomon, nor Adam, etc... peace and blessings be upon all of them. Allah Almighty clearly chose Jesus peace be upon him to take on this huge task. Jesus is the Good that Allah Almighty wants to bring to mankind. Jesus is the Good that will fight the evil of the Devil (Dajjal).
Jesus = Good
Dajjal = Evil
Let us look at few Sayings (Hadiths) from our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him regarding our beloved Prophet Jesus peace be upon him and the enemy that he will fight, the Dajjal:
Narrated Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman: "Subay' ibn Khalid said: I came to Kufah at the time when Tustar was conquered. I took some mules from it. When I entered the mosque (of Kufah), I found there some people of moderate stature, and among them was a man whom you could recognize when you saw him that he was from the people of Hijaz. I asked: Who is he? The people frowned at me and said: Do you not recognize him? This is Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman, the companion of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him). Then Hudhayfah said: People used to ask the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) about good, and I used to ask him about evil. Then the people stared hard at him. He said: I know the reason why you dislike it. I then asked: Apostle of Allah, will there be evil as there was before, after this good which Allah has bestowed on us? He replied: Yes. I asked: Wherein does the protection from it lie? He replied: In the sword. I asked: Apostle of Allah, what will then happen? He replied: If Allah has on Earth a caliph who flays your back and takes your property, obey him, otherwise die holding onto the stump of a tree. I asked: What will come next? He replied: Then the Antichrist (Dajjal) will come forth accompanied by a river and fire. He who falls into his fire will certainly receive his reward, and have his load taken off him, but he who falls into his river will have his load retained and his reward taken off him. I then asked: What will come next? He said: The Last Hour will come. (Translation of Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 35, Trials and Fierce Battles (Kitab Al-Fitan Wa Al-Malahim), Number 4232)"
Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal: "The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The greatest war, the conquest of Constantinople and the coming forth of the Dajjal (Antichrist) will take place within a period of seven months. (Translation of Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 37, Battles (Kitab Al-Malahim), Number 4282)"
Narrated AbuHurayrah: "The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist (Dajjal) and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him. (Translation of Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 37, Battles (Kitab Al-Malahim), Number 4310)"
Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, 'There are angels guarding the entrances (or roads) of Medina, neither plague nor Ad-Dajjal (i.e., Antichrist) will be able to enter it.' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues of Madinah, Volume 3, Book 30, Number 104)"
Narrated Anas bin Malik: "The Prophet said, 'There will be no town which Ad-Dajjal will not enter except Mecca and Medina, and there will be no entrance (road) (of both Mecca and Medina) but the angels will be standing in rows guarding it against him, and then Medina will shake with its inhabitants thrice (i.e. three earth-quakes will take place) and Allah will expel all the nonbelievers and the hypocrites from it.' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues of Madinah, Volume 3, Book 30, Number 105)"
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: "The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A'maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of the people of the earth at that time will come from Medina (to counteract them). When they will arrange themselves in ranks, the Romans would say: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took prisoners from amongst us. Let us fight with them; and the Muslims would say: Nay, by Allah, we would never get aside from you and from our brethren that you may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of the army would run away, whom Allah will never forgive. A third (part of the army). which would be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah's eye, would be killed and the third who would never be put to trial would win and they would be conquerors of Constantinople. And as they would be busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst themselves) after hanging their swords by the olive trees, the Satan would cry: The Dajjal (i.e., antichrist) has taken your place among your family. They would then come out, but it would be of no avail. And when they would come to Syria, he would come out while they would be still preparing themselves for battle drawing up the ranks. Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus (peace be upon him) son of Mary would descend and would lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would (disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he (Jesus) were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolve completely, but Allah would kill them by his hand and he would show them their blood on his lance (the lance of Jesus Christ). (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book Pertaining to the Turmoil and Portents of the Last Hour (Kitab Al-Fitan wa Ashrat As-Sa`ah), Book 041, Number 6924)"

Jesus is the "Beast" in the Noble Quran who will come and fight the devil.
Did Jesus say that you must be a Christian or else you will go to hell?
Absolutely not!. Please visit Jesus saying "I am the way and the truth and the life..." doesn't prove that he is the Creator of the Universe. Jesus promised and guaranteed Paradise to non-trinitarians.
There is not a single Verse in the New Testament where Jesus promises hell fire to those who are not Christians. "And they say: 'None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.' Those are their (vain) desires. Say: 'Produce your proof if ye are truthful.' (The Noble Quran, 2:111)" The word "Christian" is not a valid word, for there is no religion of Christianity according to Islam.
According to Islam, Jesus came and Preached the Gospel. Jesus' followers were never called Christians. All of the religions of GOD Almighty taught the Oneness of GOD Almighty, which means "Islam" in Arabic.
Jesus was mostly concerned about teaching good ethics and morals to his followers. Let us look at few quotations of Jesus from the New Testament:
1- Acts 20:34-36 "In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: `It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
2- Matthew 5:9-11 "Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
3- Matthew 5:8-10 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God."
4- Matthew 5:5-7 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."
5- Matthew 5:6-8 "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."
6- Matthew 5:7-9 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."
7- Matthew 5:3-5 "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
8- Matthew 5:4-6 "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth."
9- Mark 12:29 "Here, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord." See Answering Trinity
In the above Sayings of our beloved Prophet Jesus peace be upon him, we clearly see that he was most concerned with "righteousness". It doesn't make any sense that Allah Almighty would bless a person and throw him in hell at the same time. When Jesus said that GOD or Allah Almighty will bless those who do righteousness, he meant it.
This is the Gospel that we Muslims believe that Jesus peace be upon him taught. Believe in One True Living GOD Almighty, and love each others. Please see why Muslims only believe in Jesus' quotes to be the closest to the truth in the Bible.
Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran: "They do blaspheme who say: 'Allah is Christ the son of Mary.' But said Christ: 'O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' Whoever joins other gods with Allah- Allah will forbid hi the Garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help. (The Noble Quran, 5:72)"
Jesus was enforced by the Holy Spirit:
It is important to know that Jesus peace be upon him was strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Jesus' place to Allah Almighty is very special.
Every word that Jesus peace be upon him spoke during his ministry was the Word of Allah Almighty, because the Holy Spirit literally took over his tong; "We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers; We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit....(The Noble Quran, 2:87)"
Important Note: Except for Allah Almighty's Revelations to His Prophets, not every word they spoke or instructed during their daily lives was truly inspired by Allah Almighty, because non of them except for Jesus peace be upon him had the Holy Spirit in him. Note that in the Bible, we don't see Jesus saying things such as "GOD Almighty said....." Jesus taught GOD Almighty's Revelations directly through his personal teachings. Muhammad and Moses peace be upon them on the other hand, did separate Allah Almighty's Revelations from their daily Conversations/Sayings with people.
Jesus is not Allah Almighty, nor part of Allah Almighty. Jesus was no more than a Messenger from Allah Almighty: "O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say Of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah, (The Noble Quran, 4:171)"
Jesus peace be upon him taught his followers to be Muslims: "And behold! I inspired the Disciples to have faith in Me [Allah] and Mine Messenger [Jesus]; they said, ''We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims.' (The Noble Quran, 5:111)"
Noble Verse 5:111 seems to agree perfectly with Jesus' teachings in the Bible's New Testament in Luke 6:40:
Jesus using the word "Muslim" in Luke 6:40:
This article was give to me by brother Tamer, may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.
Let us look at Luke 6:40 from my N.I.V. Bible "A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher."
|From me, Osama Abdallah:
Evidence from the English translation of Luke 6:40 that further prove that the word 'Muslim' was used by Jesus:
Luke 6:40 (KJV)
Luke 6:40 (Darby)
Luke 6:40 (Young's Literal Translation)
Luke 6:40 (21st Century King James Version)
Luke 6:40 (American Standard Version)
The perfection here means a spiritual one. What the verse is saying is that knowledge is not what matters! The teacher or master is higher in knowledge than his student. But the student can be as high as his teacher, or even higher, by being a true 'MUSHLAM' or Muslim, a spiritually perfect and well-disciplined person!
"Ein talmeed na'leh 'al rabbo; shekken kal adam she'MUSHLAM yihyeh k'rabbo."
In other words:
1- My math teacher can be more knowledgeable than me in math, but with my baseera (being a very good Muslim that is), I can be an equal or even better person than him or her!!
2- My master, if I were a slave, can be higher than me in authority and worldly reputation, but with my baseera (with my Islam), I can be an equal or even better person than him!!
Even their wrong word clearly supports Islam, because the verse is crystal clear in Aramaic!! The most accurate and honest translation for the Aramaic Mushlam is none other than the Arabic Muslim, which means Believer!
Continuing with brother Tamer's article....
Let us look at what Jesus said in Luke 6:40 in the language of Aramaic translated into Hebrew as shown below:
"Ein talmeed na'leh 'al rabbo; shekken kal adam she'MUSHLAM yihyeh
Taken from the Aramaic bible society. See also the PDF file at this link.
Note: Aramaic and Hebrew are read from right
to left, which is opposite to English.
Translation in English: "No student can be above his teacher, but everyone that is a MUSLIM, can be as his teacher."
Important Note: The Hebrew word "Mushlam" comes from the root "Sh L M". "Shalom" which comes from the same root means "peace". The Arabic word "Muslim" comes from the root "S L M". "Salam" means "peace". "Salem" means "safe". Also taken from the Aramaic bible society, http://home.comcast.net/~rzuberi/index_files/page0005.htm, and http://home.comcast.net/~rzuberi/articles/Being_Like_The_Teacher.pdf.

Most recent discoveries:
Recently Father Pecerillo, a famous Franciscan Archiologist, found more than twenty churches in Madaba at the south of Jordan. From the Forth Century we found houses in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine with this inscription in Arabic :"Bism Allah al Rahman al Rahim" which showed that Christians were the first to use this name, Allah for GOD Almighty, which proves that the name of GOD Almighty in the Noble Quran, "Allah" is the correct one. This also proves to us that the Bible is not all found. There are still missing pieces in it that disprove trinity.
For more details and proofs, visit: Jewish and Christian Arabs used the word "Allah" for GOD before Islam. See historical and archeological evidence and most recent discoveries in the Middle East.
Only Allah Almighty is Perfect:
According to Islam, no one is perfect except for Allah Almighty. Non of Allah's Prophets (including Jesus) were perfect. But however, they were all sinless. Jesus peace be upon him was in no way GOD Almighty, nor related to GOD Almighty. Jesus was not Divine. Jesus was a beloved Prophet from GOD Almighty whom GOD decided to strengthen him with Holy Spirit that He [GOD] did not give to any other of His Messengers.
What about Jesus' Saying in John 14:5-7?
Let us look what Jesus said in John 14:5-7 "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Again, please visit Jesus saying "I am the way and the truth and the life..." doesn't prove that he is the Creator of the Universe. Jesus promised and guaranteed Paradise to non-trinitarians.
According to Islam, as I mentioned above, Jesus is the chosen Prophet of GOD Almighty who will come to fight the army of Satan and defeat him. Jesus is the Good that GOD Almighty will use to defeat the bad here on earth. As we've seen above, Allah Almighty according to Jesus' quotes, honors those who do righteousness. Jesus didn't say in these quotes that you have to believe in me as the GOD Almighty Himself and then do righteousness in order for you to be blessed. No mention of any Triune GOD by Jesus. Jesus was clear about teaching us what pleases Allah Almighty, and what doesn't; believing in One Mighty GOD and doing righteousness is what Jesus taught.
Also, please visit Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Does that make him GOD?
This is the same exact message the Noble Quran (The Muslims' Holy Scripture) teaches; "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other. Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well-acquainted. (The Noble Quran, 49:13)" See also Noble Verses 2:130, 2:212, 2:241, 3:15, 3:39, 3:46, 3:114, 3:133, 3:193, 3:198, 4:34, 4:69, 5:27, 5:65, 5:84, 6:32, 6:69, 6:85, 6:153, 6:155, 7:35, 7:128, 7:168, 7:169, 7:170 and many other Noble Verses.
If I do good, then I belong to the army of Jesus; the army of Good. If I do good, then I am alive in the sight of Allah Almighty and I would have Jesus in me, my leader in this life against Satan. If I do bad and continue to be an evil doer, then I would not gain the after life.
In order for someone to be a Muslim, he must believe in Allah Almighty's teachings in the Bible, through what Jesus peace be upon him taught in the Gospel and what was Revealed to Moses peace be upon him; "It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong). (The Noble Quran, 3:3)" That's why Muslims only believe in Jesus' quotes to be closest to the truth in the Bible.
After we believe in Allah Almighty's previous Messages in His Gospel, then we must believe in the Noble Quran, Allah Almighty's Revelations to His Messenger Muhammad peace be upon him. Prophet Muhammad was the Seal of the Prophets, and he was sent to all of mankind.
Please see Prophet Jesus predicted the coming of Muhammad after him in the Bible.
Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Does that make him GOD?
Jesus saying "I am the way and the truth and the life..." doesn't prove that he is the Creator of the Universe. Jesus promised and guaranteed Paradise to non-trinitarians.
What is the place of the Jews and Christians in Islam?
According to Islam, the righteous people from the Jews and Christians will have their Great Reward from Allah Almighty and will enter Paradise. Let us look at the following Noble Verses:
"And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book [Jews and Christians], those who believe in God, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to God: They will not sell the Signs of God for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and God is swift in account. (The Noble Quran, 3:199)"
"Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous. (The Noble Quran, 3:113-114)"
"Those who believe (in the Quran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (The Noble Quran, 2:62)"
"Nay,-whoever submits His whole self to God and is a doer of good,- He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (The Noble Quran, 2:112)"
"Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (The Noble Quran, 2:277)"
The Righteous and Beloved Jews in the Noble Quran:
"Of the people of Moses (i.e., the Jews) there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth. (The Noble Quran, 7:159)"
The above Noble Verses clearly speak about the righteous Jews and Christians who believe in Allah Almighty and do righteousness and will have their Great Reward and enter Paradise.
However, according to Allah Almighty, from among the people of the Book, most of the ones who will gain Paradise are Christians; few of them are Jews. Let us look at the following Noble Verses:
"Strongest among men in enmity to the believers [Muslims] wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, 'We are Christians': because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant. (The Noble Quran, 5:82)"
"The Jews say: 'God's hand is tied up.' Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from God increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, God doth extinguish it; but they strive to do mischief on earth. And God loveth not those who do mischief. (The Noble Quran, 5:64)"
"But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few - ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for God loveth those who are kind. (The Noble Quran, 5:13)"
We must also know that according to Islam most of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) are perverted transgressors, deceiving, in some cases are hypocrites, and most of them are considered Truth rejecters! Let us look at the following Noble Verses:
"Ye [Muslims] are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. (The Noble Quran 3:110)"
"And they say: 'None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.' Those are their (vain) desires. Say: 'Produce your proof if ye are truthful.' (The Noble Quran, 2:111)"
"A section of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians during Prophet Muhammad's time] say: Believe in the morning what is revealed to the believers [Muslims], but reject it at the end of the day; perchance they may (themselves) turn back (from Islam). (The Noble Quran, 3:72)"
"Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: 'The Guidance of God,-that is the (only) Guidance.' Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against God. (The Noble Quran, 2:120)"
"They say: 'Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (To salvation).' Say thou: 'Nay! (I would rather) the Religion of Abraham the True, and he joined not gods with God.' (The Noble Quran, 2:135)"
"They do blaspheme who say: 'Allah is Christ the son of Mary.' But said Christ: 'O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' Whoever joins other gods with Allah - Allah will forbid him the Garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help.(The Holy Quran, 5:72)"
Allah Almighty predicted that Christians would be great, honorable and peaceful people! But this still doesn't guarantee all of them Paradise!
Allah Almighty predicted that Christians would be great, honorable and peaceful people! But this still doesn't guarantee all of them Paradise!

My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
