Islam Muhammad And The Quran

Islam Muhammad And The Quran Muhammad is one of the most controversial person in the history of mankind.  Muslims believe that he is the greatest prophet, the seal of the prophets, and that no prophet will come after him.  Christians believe that Muhammad is a false prophet.

More than eight hundred million human beings confess Islam, the religion Muhammad founded. Therefore it is important to know Muhammad and his teachings.

It is fitting that we study Muhammad's life from his birth to his death as well as the Quran.   Thomas Carlyle, a Scottish historian who lived between 1795 and 1881, wrote concerning Muhammad:

 

Can it be possible that so many creatures have lived and died for something which must be regared as a tragic fraud?

Because of the great number of people who follow Muhammad and his religion, Islam, Carlye assumed that Muhammad was sincere and original.  Carlyle forgot what the Lord Jesus Christ said:

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13, 14, NKJ)

We cannot judge any religion by the number of its adherents.
Alighieri Dante, the Italian poet who lived between the years 1265 and 1321 A.D., wrote THE DIVINE COMEDY.  In it he describes Muhammad, with his body split from the head down to the waist, in the twenty-eight sphere of the inferno and shows him tearing apart his severed breast with his own hands, because he is the chief among the damned souls who have brought schism into religion.

To the medieval mind, Muhammad's claim to deliver a divine revelatin, superseding Judaism and Christianity, can only be regarded as an implausible fraud.  Yet, Anis Mansoor, a well known Egyptian journalist, wrote a book entitled THE DISTINGUISHED PERSONALITIES IN HISTORY ARE ONE HUNDRED, MUHAMMAD IS THE GREATEST OF THEM. How can there be such diverse and extreme opinions regarding one man such as there are about Muhammad?

Let us study this man Muhammad.  Let us also study the Quran.

This book is a documented analysis of Muhammad's life: his roots, his marriages, his call, his migration, his battles, and his death.  It is also a documented analysis of the Quran, which the Muslims spell "Qur'an."

What is the Quran? The Quran is the Muslims's Holy Book - they call it "The Glorious Qur'an" or "Al-Mushaf Al-Shareef."  The Quran came almost 600 years after Christ.  Many of its contents contradict the Bible and it records many of the Bible stories with great distortion.  It commands the killing of Jews and Christians, permits polygamy (marring more than one woman at one time), permits the husband to beat his wife, and permits a Muslim man to marry a Christian or a Jewish woman, but forbids the Muslim woman to marry a Christian or a Jew.  Many more things are mentioned in this book.

It would be helpful for the English speaking reader to buy an English translation of the Quran and read it carefully to see the great contradictions between it and the Bible, and at the same time to discover the discrepancies in the Quran itself.

This book compares the Quran and the Bible.  It has been written after many years of research to inform the English speaking people concerning Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, and the Quran.
It is offered with much prayer.

Allah tells in the Quran yes Muslim women can not marry non muslim men and the reason is very clear. If you are not sincere to your creator how can you be loyal and sincere to a muslim wife< instead you will bring her to darkness and filthy life, many haram and unwanted things which are the cause of destruction for humanity

it is true that God created men and women to get into conjugal relationship and reproduce to preserve the human race, but we read in the book of genesis that Abraham didn't want to take a wife for his son Ishaq from the land of Canaan despite the fact that religions were not in existence yet> so it's not only about religion, it's about manners and social traditions.

YES!

Muslim girls are not allowed to marry anyone but a Muslim.

A Muslim male can marry a Jew or a Christian!

Hindu women who want to get rid of their husband in Muslim countries, CONVERT to Mohammedanism & the husband is kicked out of the home.

Amy, i dont know u re sunni or syiah, but i assume that you dont know about hadith.I recommen you ti read Hadith Sahih Bukhari valume 3, buku 43, no 648as a background for Baca QS 66 At Tahriim verses 1-11). Miuhammad had a sex with his Jewish woman slave out of marriage.And how he treated Sauda bt Zamah, hid 2nd wife (Hadith Sahih Bukhari vol 6 buku 60 no 380), how he permit mut'ah (muslim man can marry anyone even slave just for a temporary, ie 3 days) with agreement.This is a covered up prostitution dony tou agree? There are a lot of verses which show that woman is not equal with man ini Quran.

Dear Amy, do you believe that someone (Muslim)cannot understand quran without hadith? Dont you believe Muslim must take a role model from Muhammad (which is known in hadith)? Muhammad himself practice mut'ah to the slave he captured from the war? And he encourage hid followers to practice it. Quran allowed man to have 4 wives (maximum) but Muhammad (according to hadith) had 11 wives. He married a 9 year girl, premenstrueted child (Aisyah), etc etc. Muhammad never saw a woman equal to man.

Well, Mohammad was not the founder of Islam, Islam was the religion for all prophets starting from our father Adam till Mohammad including Moses and Jesus christ.Mohammad called for worshipping one god "Allah".The Quran does have descrepancies, what people may think as discrepancies are only illustrations and some tolerances. When an english speaking reader wants to read quran, he must communicate with other people who are able to elaborate and explain many aspects of it.the Quran is not a history book that mainly deals with dates and battles and kings, and if these are contained at some parts of the quran they are there to set examples of people who disobeyed or obeyed the orders and commands of" Allah".

Bro aAmer
U have a logically incorect. 1. If Islam is the religion of all prophets, there will be a tons of evidence for it. Jewish and Christian afiirm that Muhammad story bout prophets was wrong.Your evidence is just Muhammad sayings that come from Khadijah. Khadijah was a Christian who dont know the real story about the prophets. So Muhammad sources was incorrect.2. There are a lot of the Muslim apologist take the verses of the Bible without cummunicate with people who are able to elaborate and explain many aspects of the Bible. What do u say bout them?
3. There are so many irrasional aspect of quran which i can say came from the true God.ie: to kill anyone who opposed islam.
4. Muhammad got an attack of black magic (Hadits Sahih Al Bukhari no 3175, no 5765). There no prophets in the Bible can defeat by black magic.

aAmer,

It is interesting that Islam claim that Jesus Christ and Abraham were Muslims when every aspect of their claims (Jesus Christ, Moses and Abraham) contradicts the Quran! Prove that Abraham, Moses and Christ were Muslims - don't simply claim it.
Question for you - where in the writings of he scriptures we see the Shahadah of Islam "there is no God except Allah and Mohammad is his messenger"? No one in the scriptures of the Jews and of the Christians uttered it. Therefore, no one in the sacred scriptures is a Muslim!!! If you can point to one single person in the Scriptures uttering the Shahadah, Islam has a claim!.

aAmer,

You say that Muhammad only continued the religion of Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. Yet so much of what Muhammad did is exactly opposite from them. Even his name should clue you in to this. I wrote about this at http://unravelingislam.com/blog/?p=122

There are many such examples illustrating Muhammad invented Islam, rather than extending a religion that was already in place.

The study of the Holy Quran cannot properly done in prejudiced disposition. Advice your followers to disabuse their mind and freely study the Quran and see the straight path (Islam) and the crooked path (Christianity). I would have love an open debate with people like you who unformed or the misinformed people astray.Inform me if you accept the challenge. Bring your best resource person.

I'll reply to you Yusuf in this Jesus Christ who is God, the Almighty clearly commanded us to love our enemies whereas Islam commands its followers to kill their enemies! You need to beg Jesus to open your eyes so you don't end up on the lake of fire, the second death! I'll pray that you don't!

Dear, Yusuf, i m not an expert of Quuran. But I studied quran and hadith, all that i can say, it doesnt make any sense. Its not from the Jews or Christian source, but from the trustable Muslim source. ie QS 36:38 “And the sun runs on course towards its stoping point”. U have to study it with the hadith Sahih Bukhari (English transl, by DR Muhammad Muslim Khan) vol 4 book 54 no 421. U can read it and will find that according to Muhammad, the sun have a ruh so it can be prostrated and pray (ask permission). U can read all of Muhammads behaviour that so embaraced to talk from the trustable Muslim sources.I can tell here, but i cant (coz it so embaraced). I haver a tons of evidence that Muhammad is not a true prophet

Yusuf,

We have not studied the Quran in a prejudiced method at all. Keep in mind that we are Arabic speakers and we are fully able to read the Quran in Arabic not mentioning the Hadith. However, when we compare what the Quran offers Vs what the Bible offers - there is no comparison. The Bible is living word of God!

We have had many debates between our people and your people. We have captured some of the debates in this site and of course there are hundreds of them on the web. If you are an Arabic Speaker we invite you to read our sister site at Elhaq.com . This is where we have listed our challenges and questions to our Muslim friends concerning the faith of the prophet of the Arabs.

Hi All

it is interesting to see a Christian website slander Islam when all you need to do is promote Christianity. In Islam we believe in the Bible (original Bible). what you call the bible today is not the word of GOD. it has been manipulated and edited by Humans who have created many versions to divide you. Today the Christians worship crosses and statues of Jesus (Idol worshipping). I fear that one day Christians will accept gays and again amend the bible to say it is the word of GOD.

Dear Shazad,
What proof do you have that the Bible has been changed? Not one word has been changed in the Holy Bible. I am a Christian and I can tell you that we do not worship crosses or statues of Jesus. This is simply not true. We worship God Himself, Yesuah al-Mesih, not a statue of Him!

Brother Shazad,
1. ytwo of the top experts of Quran that Muhammad recomended r : Abdullah ibn Masood and Ubay ibn Kab. They (even Aisyah) said that Quran has been changed.
2. QS 18:27 there NO ONE can change the word of God. Do you believe the original Torah and Injil are the word of God?NO ONE can changed them.
3. QS 10:94 when Muhammad doubted about his prophetness and the word from Allah, Allah command him to ask ahlulqitab (Jewish and Christian) about it. Logically, if Torah and Injil were coruupted, how can Allah ask Muhammad to ask these people who held the 2 qitabs?
4. In sunnan Abu Daud no 4464, Muhammad put his hand on the Torah swore in the name of Allah that Torah which he held is the word of God. If Torah wa being corrupted that time, how can Muhammad did that?
I dont want to offend Muslim or Islam, but just want to tell the truth.

Brother Shazad, 1. there is an ayat (verse) of quran that Muslim never did. read QS 3: 84. If someone make a cartoon of prophet Yunus, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa etc,will Muslim attack him just like when he did it to Muhammad? I dont think so. Deep in all of Mulsim mind, Muhammad already became a second god. 2. Quran that we have right now is not an original quran, said 2 expert of quran whom Muhammad recommended (Abdullah ibn Mas’ood and Ubay ibn Khab). Even Aiyah (Muhammad s third wife) said that.Read ur sahih Bukhafri and sahih Muslim. 3. Quran say that Bible which we have today is not corrupted. Read ur quran carefully and objectively.

It is true that islam allows polygamy; but what about judaism? Solomon, one of the great prophets and wise kings of jews was married to 1000 women. If the author of this had any moral values he ought to mention this in his introduction to the book
Reply
+2 # Karaz Bishara 2014-10-31 00:20
The difference is that it is allowed in Islam. Solomon married many women, yes, but it was not a good thing, nor was it ever praised or allowed. Ultimately, it was his multiple marriages that led his heart away from following after God. God made them male and female and "for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh" Matthew 19:5 (Jesus speaking) Polygamy is never allowed in the Bible, from the first word to the last. It is recorded as what occurred in history, but never is it allowed.
Reply
+2 # Abd El-Massih 2014-10-31 03:34
Ashur,

The polygamy as found in the Old testament of the Bible was never commanded by God. God from the beginning designed the marriage to be between one man and one woman. We find that the Prophet of the Arabs permitting his followers to marry up to four wives and he himself broke that command by marrying 12 wives and many concubines. Polygamy was NEVER commanded by God as we find it in the Quran. Therefore Islam is not a religion that surpasses Christianity since it brought you and its followers backward. Read the Injeel and come to Jesus Christ who is Lord of all.

Jews were only mainly allowed to do that in certain instances,certa in circumstances. Like when a mans brother had died and he had not had children,his brother should marry his widow and have children with her. They were supposed to give the first born son the name of his deceased brother to keep his lineage going. God always ordained it to be one man,one woman. Just like with the issue of divorce,God didn't condone it,but he allowed it.He made only one wife for Adam,and he told Noah to take his one wife on the Arc with him,he could have told him to get more wives to help him repopulate the earth,but he didn't tell him that. Yes,some people did that in some tribes,and at certain times,but only of their own accord,God actually didn't want that,becuz it can cause alot of problems and strife.Man and woman were meant to be as 2 halves of one whole,united as one.3 women to one man,do not equate to equal halves.It's just men giving men the right/excuse to take advantage and be self indulgent.

Muhammad never claimed prophethood — and for good reason: He was not a prophet. The Quran never refers to Muhammad as a prophet, but rather a “messenger” or an “apostle”. A messenger is one who carries messages between people. An apostle is one who tries to persuade others to share an idea or cause. A prophet is one who foretells the future. However, a prophet may serve as a “messenger” or an “apostle”. But this does not make a “messenger” or an “apostle” a prophet.

Sword -
People are free to choose whatever they want. The growth that Islam is experiencing is mainly biological growth due to size of families of Islamic communities and the fact in poor Muslim communities, many Muslim men have more than one wive. As to why there converts to Islam? Because it is earthly - and those who think of earthly things get attracted to earthly things. The greatest Prophet of all times John the Baptist (Yahyah) said about Christ:"He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all." Jesus is above all!

I do not believe that God would command his people to kill other people because they do not have the same belief. That is an act of man. Do not argue over Dogma that too is an act of man. I believe that God is a loving God and loves all of his Creation. He makes no mistakes. He supports no rule or law that would hurt another without just cause. Love will conquer all. Hatred is the spawn of the Devil. Go forth and spread God's Love throughout the World.
