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.

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".

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.

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.
