Chapter 6: Evidences That Demand A Verdict - What does Islam offer, and what is new in Islam?

Article Index

10. What does Islam offer, and what is new in Islam?

This is an evidence that demands a verdict

It is of great importance to know that true religion must give answers to the basic spiritual needs of mankind.

There are four basic spiritual needs of the human heart:

  1. The need to be loved and to love.
  2. Assurance of total forgiveness of sin and relief from the sense of guilt.
  3. A way of life designed by God, the Supreme Authority, to show man how to please God and deal with his fellow man.
  4. Complete assurance of eternal life with the Holy God in a holy, heavenly bliss.

Are these needs met in Islam? I would leave the answer to the sincere researcher.

Most importantly, what is new in Islam? Monotheism is clear through the Bible. The True God was known centuries before Muhammad.

The only new doctrines that Islam brought is legalizing polygamy and the beating of wives:

Marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly [with them], then only one, or that which your right hand possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice (Surat Al-Nisa 4:3).

If we know that Muhammad, the excellent example of the Muslim, married fourteen women, we must not expect that any Muslim will do better than Muhammad.

There is no real love between a man and his four wives, it is only a physical relationship.

Moreover, Islam allows husbands to beat their wives in case they fear their disloyalty:

As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds, beat them (Surat Al-Nisa 4:34).

What woman would like to exchange the biblical commandments to their husbands, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it" (Ephesians 5:25 - NKJ), with what the Quran says?

Something of great interest should be mentioned here before the conclusion of this chapter, namely that there came a time when Muhammad doubted the revelations he received, and was commanded to ask those who read the Bible before him.

These are the words of the Quran:

If thou [Muhammad] wert in doubt as to what we have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book [the Bible] before thee (Surat Yunus 10:94).

If Muhammad doubted the revelations he received, then we have the right to doubt these revelations.

Islam has many more things contrary to Judaism and Christianity. Space will not permit elaboration.

These are evidences that demand a verdict, and the verdict is that Jesus Christ is truly the Son of the living God, the only Savior of mankind, the judge of all the earth, and God’s LastMessenger, and whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life:

He that believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him (John 3:36).

Muslims insult Jesus all the time by saying he was just a prophet and that he is not God. Then Muslims insult Christians by saying that the Gospels have been changed. Now that shows that Muslims do not believe that our God is Almighty. As our Almighty God will with ease ensure that no simple human can change his word. So Muslims are blasphemers as well. I wonder how they explain that on Judgement day.

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14

If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. Revelation 22:18

"And We have sent down to you the Book in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and rectifying it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging away from the truth that has come to you..."
[al-Qur'aan, Surat al-Maa'idah, 5:48]

May Allah guide those of you who are sincere to the truth.

For your own sake please read SEEKING ALLAH FOUND JESUS. The new Testament was written by Peter, Paul, John, James, followers of Jesus says this research... written 30 years after Jesus Crucifiction. Q'ran was written 200 years after Mohammed's death and 800 years after Jesus's crucifiction. May God turn you to him and His truth. Your religion is false. Mohammed was a general social and military reformer who heard of the religion of the Jews and Christians. When Islam is defeated and Jesus rdturns in Glory, I hope to see you among those greeting Him. Please turn to the one and true God and turn away from Satan. God truly loves you and please for God research and accept Jesus as the true Messiah Ashua that He is. Amen.

Sara,
We do not believe that God had a son, either! Jesus is called the "Son of God" because it shows exactly what and who He is like - God Himself. Arabs are called "Sons of the Desert" but we all know the desert did not get married to a woman and birth a race of people. Just as "son of the desert" identifies what a desert-dweller looks like, acts like, etc... so "Son of God" identifies Jesus Christ as being the very image and picture of God. Read the words of Jesus in the Injeel or New Testament of the Bible and you will see that Jesus says He and the Father (God) are ONE - He is saying that He is, in fact, God! You can find this in John chapter 14. As a last note, we do not worship idols and we believe that salvation is for every person on the whole earth!

haha! What a highly un-nuanced article. I was reading everything nicely, until the beating of the wives made me laugh out loud. I beg to differ with you sir. Islam did bring something new to the table. The pristine, pure monotheism, open to all of humanity, that cannot be found in other faiths today (we do not believe God had a son, or is an idol or that religion is exclusive to a chosen few).

And you did in fact misquote the Quran, in your interpretation. But let me ask you this - why would Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who was also an illiterate man, admonish himself in his own book? No! He did not! This verse has an "if" clause, and is hypothetical. Read the context.

And yes, I do encourage your readers to read about Islam and make their own judgments. As for me, I cannot read more about your faith, because of the way you describe mine. I would never do that to yours. And may God guide us all to knowledge.
