Islam

People normally classify Muslims as either: extremists or peaceful. You can also say conservative and liberal, unfortunately the extremists are the ones actually following what the Quran says to do. The peaceful ones are the liberal ones who are now all squishy

however, whether or not the Quran is violent, doesn’t prove it to be false. It just tells us that we don’t like it.

let me start out by saying that if the Bible is true than Islam is false: Islam claims to have the old testament and the gospels as an authority. the Bible says that Jesus Christ is God and a part of the Trinity, and there is no God besides him.

If the Bible is False than Islam is false: Islam relies on the the Bible and if it isn’t correct as they claim than neither is Islam.

In the Beginning:

Islam’s last prophet Muhammad meditated in a cave for contemplation he was visited by an angelic being who over a period of many years visited him and gave him revelation telling him that Christianity and Judaism are wrong and they departed from the truth and making claims that Jesus was not who the Christians say he is. (this sounds similar to every other non Christian religion/cult to try and debunk Christianity).

Misrepresents Trinity

Sura 5:116 And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? he saith: Be glorified! It was not mine to utter that to which I had no right. If I used to say it, then Thou knewest it.

Sura 4:171 O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.

  • These verses show a complete misunderstanding of the Trinity, if the Quran was truly revelation from “Allah” you’d think they would get the beliefs of Christians correct. Muhammad never had contact with the Bible (if he did he wouldn’t be able to read it) he only knew of the concept Christians in the area he apparently thought the Trinity was three separate Gods that consisted of the Father the Son and Mary. On top of that he got the impression that God had a baby.

Relationship with Jews and Christians.

Sura 5:51 O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Sura (3:28) – “Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah…”

Can the Words of Allah be Changed?

  • The Words of Allah cannot be changed

Sura 6:34 Rejected were the Apostles Before thee: with patience And constancy they bore Their rejection and their wrongs, Until Our aid did reach Them: there is none That can alter the Words (And Decrees) of God. Already hast thou received Some account of those Apostles.

Sura 6:115 The Word of thy Lord Doth find its fulfilment In truth and in justice: None can change His Words: For He is the one Who Heareth and knoweth all.

  • The Bible is the word of Allah.

Sura 5:44  It was We who revealed The Law (to Moses): therein Was guidance and light.’ By its standard have been judged The Jews, by the Prophets Who bowed (as in Islam) To God’s Will, by the Rabbis And the Doctors of Law: For to them was entrusted The protection of God’s Book…

Sura 4:136 O ye who believe! Believe in God And His Apostle, And the scripture which He Hath sent to His Apostle And the scripture which He sent To those before (him) Any who denieth God, His angels, His Books, His Apostles, and the Day Of Judgment, hath gone Far, far astray.

  • The Bible has been changed.
99% of the Muslims you will have contract with will say that the Bible has been corrupted. However, in searching for verses in the Qur’an i found it difficult to back up. A popular verse they like to use is Sura 5:41:
Sura 5:41 O Apostle! let not Those grieve thee, who race Each other into Unbelief: (Whether it be) among those Who say “We believe” With their lips but Whose hearts have no faith; Or it be among the Jews,— Men who will listen To any lie,—will listen Even to others who have Never so much as come To thee. They change the words From their (right) times And places; they say, “If ye are given this, Take it, but if not, Beware!” If any one’s trial Is intended by God, thou hast No authority in the least For him against God. For such—it is not God’s will to purify Their hearts. For them There is disgrace In this world, and In the Hereafter A heavy punishment.
However like all verses I’ve found on this subject seems to be inferring that we don’t listen to what the Bible says.
Nevertheless, Their claim is that the Bible is corrupted… but what is their evidence? We see through the discipline of textual criticism that the Bible Muhammad had (at least the one that existed at the time of Muhammad) is the same one that existed in the time of Jesus. See Here for more.

Violence

Sura 9:123 O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

Sura (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

8:39 And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah; but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do.

Sura (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

Sura (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]…and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

Sura (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”

Sura (6:93) – “Who can be more wicked than one who inventeth a lie against Allah?”

  • Peaceful Muslims suggest that these verses are in the context of self defense.

Baby Jesus Talks

19:29-31 But she pointed to him. They said: How should we speak to one who was a child in the cradle? He said: Surely I am a servant of Allah; He has given me the Book and made me a prophet; And He has made me blessed wherever I may be, and He has enjoined on me prayer and poor-rate so long as I live;
