    Quran's Mistakes

    There are many errors in the Quran; many, many, many errors in the Quran. And I say that from
    a ten-feet view point. For instance, when the Quran said that the earth was flat, that was a mistake.

Guarantee of eternal life


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


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.

You make point of people choosing a religion to gain eternal life. I am confused as to what you mean? Many religions state that if you do not believe in a specific religion, you will not gain eternal life. They also state, if you do not do certain actions such as praying, or having a relationship with someone, you will go to hell. So what are you trying to say when you speak of people choosing religions based on if they want eternal life? Thanks for the clarification.

Zany if I pray the way you are referring to but from within I am a dirty liar and deceiver, do I still go to heaven. more than our outward, our inward matters that is why in new testament, circumcision is of heart not of flesh.

Waqas Ahmed if we are to go to heaven based on our deeds, why do you think we need God? we can go to heaven ourselves then by doing good deeds.

Speaking of Eternal life. does the Qur'an teach anything about the end times? Does it talk about the world ending or does the world just exist forever?

This is interesting because I had never known that Muslims did not have assurance of a life after this earthly one. My question is, if the Qur'an says that each person will go to hell and gather up the devil and the other people there, what (according to the Qur'an) would they do? That part didn't make any sense to me.

Yes Peyton, there are similarities between Islam and Catholicism, and Judaism for that matter. By way of contrast: Jesus took our sin upon himself and so relieved us of the impossible burden of repairing the damage caused by sin, the ultimate damage being death itself. The only cure for Death is Life, are not the source of Life but Jesus is. In John 10:28 He said "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish" Read also Isaiah 53 (a prophecy about Jesus taking our sins) verse5 he was pierced for our transgressions,he was crushed for our iniquities;the punishment that brought us peace was on him,and by his wounds we are healed. verse 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,each of us has turned to our own way;and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Hi Isabel, It is not a matter of judging anyone.However it would be tragic if God had revealed a sure way of access to Paradise and people lived unaware of it. Regards, Ken

Honestly, this article is so irritating. There are many religions where you don't have a 100% assurance that you will enter eternal life. This is not strictly a Muslim thing- we do not know for sure who will enter eternal life or not. It ultimately is decided by God, so who are we to judge them for not understanding?

From what I have been told at church, it takes more than just belief in God and Jesus to get into heaven. You also have to follow the commandments and the word of Jesus. Additionally, there is a similar belief for Catholics when it comes to visiting hell, only they call it purgatory. In there, souls are cleansed of their sins before they enter heaven. I thought it was interesting the similarities between Catholicism and Islam in this respect.
