Guarantee of eternal life

Q10. Does The Quran guarantee eternal life in Heaven to the Muslims?

Answer

Eternal life. Well, the Quran is very emphatic in telling the Muslim that every Muslim will enter hell. And I said that to many of the Muslims in my discussions with them. I really I am amazed, "How come that you would embrace a religion who will not give you the assurance of eternal life?" And I ask the many Muslims, and you can do the same. And they will confess that, "Are you sure that when die, as a Muslim, will you go to be with God, in Heaven? Are you sure of that?" No Muslim have that kind of assurance. No Muslim, because the Quran doesn't give this assurance to any Muslim. And then the Quran, in very plain words, you see, says that every Muslim, every Muslim must enter hell. Every Muslim. And that is in surat Mariam, surat number 19, and I want to read that for you, from there. Surat number 19, in the Quran, and we read the words, in verse 66, "And a man says, when I am dead, shall I then be raised up alive? Does not man, remember, that we created him before, while he was nothing? So by your lord, surely we shall gather them, human beings, together, and also the devil." Human beings and the devil will be gathered, and also the devil with them. "Then we shall bring them round hell, on their knees." Allah is saying we shall gather human beings with the devil, and we shall bring them round hell, on their knees. And then, it is said in verse 71, in the very same surat, "There is not one of you that will pass over hell." If we want the accurate meaning, there is no one of you but will enter hell. Passover, this is not a literal translation at all. There is no one, there is not one of you that will pass over hell. This is with your lord, a decree which must be accomplished." What does this mean? God must send every Muslim to hell. Of course, when you come to the clerics and ask them, "What do you think about that?" and they say, "Yes. Every Muslim will go to hell for a time until he serves his time, and then he'll go to paradise." But according to the Quran, anyone who will enter hell, he will be eternally there." The Quran says that! When anyone enters hell, he will be there eternally. There is no assurance for eternal life in the Quran.

On the other hand, when you come to Jesus Christ, and the gospel of John 5:24, "if anyone hears my voice, and believes on the one who sent me, he'll have eternal life" He will not come to judgment. He is transferred from this to life. Assurance. Assurance. The disciples came to Jesus rejoicing. All, even Satan, obey the commandment when we tell them to get out of any possessed person. And Jesus said, "Do not rejoice because Satan is under your authority. Rejoice because your names are written in Heaven. Rejoice because you have eternal life. That is the most important." So when you go to the New Testament, and you go to the Quran, in the Quran there is no assurance whatsoever, to any Muslim of going to paradise or to Heaven after death. On the other hand, in the New Testament, it is a guarantee. If you believe with your heart, that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross of Calvary, receive Him as the only begotten Son who died on your behalf, you'll receive eternal life immediately, and it will be eternal. That is the difference between the two.

it is very obvious that the quoran is replete with errors and contradictions.Amazingly,it recognises the worship of angels and objects as symbolised in the kaa'ba.I pray that Jesus in HIS infinite grace and truth will come to salvage their hell-bent souls to the glory of HIS name.

Which way is SALVATION ?

In the Islam religion one does not know God-only obey God. Rules and regulations make up the religion and are what one does in Islam; this is what pleases God. One can do what Allah asks their whole life and at the end there are no guarantees he accepts you, even after a lifetime of obeying. No Muslim can ever know if his good works are sufficient, or if he is predestined to Allah's favor. Salvation is mentioned several times but not as a gift, but a reward for those who submit and obey.

Surah 28:67 “But any that (in this life) had repented, believed, and worked righteousness, will have hopes to be among those who achieve salvation.”

Lol what r u talking about man. U r trying to manipulate the people here. What u said is true to some extent. Concept of he'll and heaven is that u do good deeds u go to heaven. U do bad deed u go to he'll. If every1 would understand that and follow it there would b a lot less crimes in the world. Let me tell u even u r Christian u will also go to heaven if u do good deeds and keep following Christ. And people who go to he'll will 1 day go to heave after their punishment. U go toCchurch and confess then u believe u r sin free. That is good 1.

Ibrahim,

Tell us where in the Bible you find the coming of Mouhammad? Sorry to disappoint you, there is no reference to any prophet from God in the Bible who is from Arabia.

The coming of a Prophet is not even the issue.The issue is the way to salvation-1 TIMOTHY 2:5 says-For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
JOHN 3:3 says- Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
ACT 4:12 says-Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
JOHN 14:6 says-Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
HEBREW 9:27 says-And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: JESUS is the ONLY WAY TO THE FATHER (HEAVEN).

Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 12-14:

"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is
come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me".

All the prophet in the bible are jewish. that is that and the coming of jesus fulfilled all that of the laws in the old testaments. This was 600 yrs before the false prophet and therefore is utterly useless to argue that old testament prophesied the coming of an Arab?!!. no way. this is always about the jews and israel. nothing to do with Arabia.

Your article sounds really funny. Do u know Islam? You christian people think that Jesus Christ (PBUH) will take all the sins of christian and and u will go to heaven? That's why u Christian people drink alcohol, kill innocent people, keep girl friends but you will go to heaven. Boy's you are in dreams. Be logical, think deeply probably u will be shown the straight path.

Harun,
We believe Jesus will take the sins of ALL people if they put their faith and trust in Him. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him." He is saying that He and the Father (God) are one - that He is God and the only way to God. It is through what Jesus did that anyone can be saved. My friend, I am a Christian, meaning I have put my faith and trust in God through Jesus, and I can tell you that I do not drink alcohol, kill innocent people, or sleep around. Jesus would not want these things and neither do I. Please read the Bible Harun and you will see that God offers forgiveness of sin to all, not just a few.

Now tell me this . Do you even know what islam is based upon ? Do you nkow as a Muslim it is a obligation upon me to read the bible as well , and take from it only the truth about what is being said instead of interpreting it upon what other people want it to be ? If you know the bible then you know that jesus prayed as a muslim . He would drop to his face in prayer just like me. You would know he wasnt the only man in the bible to refer Allah/ ELI / Illah to be his )holy father ? So before you try to brake up bits and pieces and share nothing but lies to your people . And The prophet muhammad what referred to as Ahmad in the bible .

Zayna, Jesus may not have been the only one to refer to God as Father, but he WAS the only one to say, "I and the Father are ONE"! He declares complete equality and one-ness with God, stating that He Himself is, in fact GOD! In John 10:30-33 we read Jesus saying, "I and my Father are one." The reaction from those listening tells us that they understood Jesus was saying He was equal with God! "Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, "Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?" The Jews answered him, saying, "For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God." Many who listened to Jesus thought he blasphemed because he declared himself to be equal with God! But my friend, we also read that "many believed on him there" John 10:42. I pray you might become one of those which believe.

How many worlds do we have to live in? Just one! Let's find a middle ground where we can help each other and take care of each other. Even Jesus wouldn't have allowed spreading hatred and animosity. Why do that then? For argument sake in here: Verse 19:71 says everyone will pass through it that means no one is special including Muslims but then it says in 19:72 those who did good will be saved and those who did wrongs will remain. Isn't fair that even Muslims are set at par with all others? No one is the "chosen" one and the only thing that sets you apart is your conduct (49:13)? Think about it if you are sincere.

The reason why christianity/JesusChrist/Grace is so come against is because it is against human logic that bad deeds can still produce reward and eternal life and vice versa. But the strength of sin is condemnation, and the empowerment of holiness comes by FREELY receiving the love of God.

If we have to pay for the love from God, that also means that we can earn it. No amount of good deeds can redeem ourselves from being BORN a sinner, and the bible clearly states that sinners go to hell. At the same time, no amount of bad deeds can take our birthrights of being BORN again as the son of God through believing in Christ's finished work.

Jesus said to mary magdalene, 'your sins have forgiven you, go and sin no more.' It is not: 'go and sin no more, then I will forgive you.'

Human understanding cannot be used to interpret how God loves us. If we are unable to fully understand how God loves us, we will be above him. Nobody can be above God.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (KJV)

We have sinned and because of that our works cannot get us into heaven.

Isaiah 64:5 But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; (KJV)

Don't rely on works to ensure eternal life Jesus Christ suffered and bore your sins for you.
If you're called by the Holy Spirit please answer the call. God will impute Jesus' righteousness to you and wash your sins away and give your spirit clean garments and a personal relationship with our Father and you'll become a joint heir with Christ and eternal life that cannot be taken from you.

How can there be any guarantee of any sort of Heaven for Muslims when the Qur'an says that Allah is the greatest of deceivers, and Abu Bakr thought it possible that even if/when he places one foot in Heaven that Allah could still change his mind, or have second thoughts, and cast him into Hell.

Even 'Satan?' is recorded as having admonished Allah for deceiving him! So just what can you safely believe of the Qur'an?

SURAH 19 MARYAM VERSE 72, "And we shall save [FROM HELL] those who have been conscious of Us [ALLAH SWT]; but we shall leave in it [HELL] the evildoers, on their knees." This shows that Allah [SWT] will leave the sinners in hell and save the pure souls.
