  1. Pingback: Ενα απο τα ονοματα του ΑΛΛΑΧ- Αλ-’Aλιι- Ο Υψιστος « Greek Muslimah Xenia and The Light of Islam!

  2. Jazzaki Allah Khair. Reminder to self and to yo my sister: make Du’aa everyday so that Allah keeps us firm on the right path and all Muslims and forgive us and hope that we meet Him and He is pleased with us.

  3. All of these are apparently Arabic; hmm Is Arabic the official language of Allah?

    When God spoke to Moses from a burning bush (Exodus 3) Moses asked “Who are you?” Moses having recently come from Egypt may have been implying “Which god are you?” Egypt being polytheistic worshiped gods of the moon, the river, the sun. God answers Moses “I am, I am”. Implied in this is the message; silly Moses I am not like Egyptian gods, you can not put a name upon me!

    When we put descriptive names to God they are acceptable because they are not idolatrous names; God my Savior, God Creator, God Almighty. These are simply descriptive names and are not idols.

    • Hello Maaark. Arabic is the language in which the Qur’an was revealed which Muslims believe to be the Word of God. Allah is the name of God in Arabic and has no plural ie gods. Also not gender, such as god- goddess. etc
      The name of god in the Arabic language Bible is also Allah.
      Surah 112 of the Qur’an describes Allah:

      112.001
      Transliteration: Qul Huwa Allāhu ‘Aĥadun

      Sahih International: Say, “He is Allah, [who is] One,

      112.002
      Transliteration: Allāhu Aş-Şamadu

      Sahih International: Allah, the Eternal Refuge.

      112.003

      Transliteration: Lam Yalid Wa Lam Yūlad

      Sahih International: He neither begets nor is born,

      112.004

      Transliteration: Walam Yakun Lahu Kufūan ‘Aĥadun

      Sahih International: Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”

      So this is Allah. He can not be compared with anyone or anything .

      For us humans to understand our Creator a little better, Allah the Most High reveals about Himself in the Qur’an, and Names some of His attributes.( Either in the Qur’an or through His Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)

      And these are the 99 Names of Allah.
      ( Just attributes)

      Remember “There is nothing equal or comparable to Him.”

      I hope this helps a little in understanding our belief.

      kind regards

      • Yes I have been studying more and appreciate the 99 names as a common ground the Muslim and Christian will agree upon because the glorify the character of Allah/God.
        I have some other questions about the Quran as I am reading and looking for a place to ask those. Can you recommend a place for that?

    • “All of these are apparently Arabic; hmm Is Arabic the official language of Allah? ”
      Allaah states the fact in Qur’aanul Hakeem that all the Apostles of God to humanity prior to and including Muhammad were sent with God’s Message in their own language. All of them including Jesus and Moses spoke indigenous languages.Pristine Torah was revealed in the language Moses spoke.Pristine Gospel was revealed in the language Jesus actually spoke. But, since Final Apostle of God ,Peace be upon Him(Allaah’s Rasool sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was sent to Arabs and humanity as a whole, Arabic has special significance. Final Apostle of God,Peace be upon Him told that it is the language humans would speak in The Hereafter(Aakhirah) in Paradise(Jannah).Also,few people today speak Hebrew(assuming Moses spoke Hebrew) and few speak Aramaic/Syriac(assuming Jesus spoke Aramaic/Syriac), but Arabic is a living language today that has not become extant which is believed by Muslims as a Miracle of Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem(The only Miracle that Final Apostle of God,Peace be upon Him offered to humanity to prove the fact that the message He brought is not an imposture but a genuine Divine Message).Brother Hamza Tzortzis has done some research into the Linguistic and Literary Miraculous Inimitability of Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem.It would be very instructive regarding your query.

      http://theinimitablequran.com

      http://hamzatzortzis.blogspot.com

      Aayah 4 of Soorah Ibraaheem which is the fourteenth Soorah of Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem is relevant for you.

      http://honorablequran.com/14.htm

      “When God spoke to Moses from a burning bush (Exodus 3) Moses asked “Who are you?” Moses having recently come from Egypt may have been implying “Which god are you?” Egypt being polytheistic worshiped gods of the moon, the river, the sun. God answers Moses “I am, I am”. Implied in this is the message; silly Moses I am not like Egyptian gods, you can not put a name upon me!”
      This event is also narrated in Qur’aanul Hakeem. Here Allaah refers to Himself in the following way:””O Moses! Verily I am Allah, the Lord of the Worlds….”
      The precise relevant Aayah is Aayah 30 of Soorah al-Qasas which is the 28th Soorah of Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem.
      “When we put descriptive names to God they are acceptable because they are not idolatrous names; God my Savior, God Creator, God Almighty. These are simply descriptive names and are not idols.”

      You are right.When I say God is my Creator.It translates into Arabic as Allaahu Khaaliqee(Al-Khaaliq meaning The Creator).
      In fact the ninety names are descriptive names(Asmaa which describe Sifaat or Attributes of Allaah) except Allaah which is His personal name.Some say that it comes from al-Ilaah(The God where ‘al’ stands for The and ‘Ilaah’ stands for god as when we become Muslim we say Laa Ilaaha IllAllaah ‘Laa’=No,’Ilaaha’=god,’Ill(aa)’=Apart from,’Allaah'(The God))
      But Holy Spirit and The Son not the descriptive names of The Creator but created beings, and the trinitarian idolatry is the most prevalent idolatry on the planet existing today. Muslims believe that salvation is not possible without Tawheed which is strict monotheism and strict unitarianism and its opposite Shirk is the Most Heinous and the greatest Unforgivable Offense man can commit against God and is even worse than murder(qatl) and adultery(zina). In Biblical terms, Shirk is what makes God jealous.One of the reasons mentioned in Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem in Soorat-ul-Kahf(18th Soorah of Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem, that is mentioned by Final Apostle of God ,Peace be upon Him in connection with Antichrist(Dajjaal)) regarding its Nuzool(Literally Descension and Metaphorically Revelation) is to warn Christians who treat God as a Father having a Son(May Allaah protect us from such a blasphemy) .Messiah, Peace be upon Him , was a man of God, but never God Himself. We love God more than servants of God. God is greater than Jesus. Glory belongs to God.Muslims will never compromise upon this Truth till they depart this world.Tawheed is the raison detre of Islam.
      The relevant Aayaat are Aayah 4-6 of Soorat-ul-Kahf:

      http://honorablequran.com/18.htm

      and Aayah 48 of Soorat-un-Nisaa.

      http://honorablequran.com/4.htm

      May Allaah cause us all to die upon Laa Ilaaha IllAllaah(There is not god apart from Allaah).
      Who says Laa Ilaaha IllAllaah, it is Najaat(Salvation) for him.
      -Final Apostle of Allaah,Peace be upon Him.
      May God guide us all unto His Straight Way(Siraat-ul-Mustaqeem) and unite us in the Heaven in The Hereafter with Noah,Abraham,Moses,Jesus and all prophets of God, Peace be upon them all.

      • When I wrongly said ‘extant’ I actually meant to say ‘extinct’ in the sense of a dead language.

      • Thank you for taking the time for such a thoughtful response. I have been studying since I made my comment and I do appreciate the 99 names. Christians would see all but maybe 3 as consistent with our Creator as described in scripture. And about Arabic you gave a very good response I have never heard so thanks. You gave a definition of “Allah” that I did not know “except Allaah which is His personal name”. In this sense the word God may not be good translation. I don’t think that our word god whether refering to the ultimate monotheistic creator or refering to little idol god is a personal name. It is a funny thing how language is used. I am sure many people use God as a personal name but in the strict definition it is not. Like you said the Bible was written in the common language of the people so even the word “elohim” (Genesis 1) was a common Canaanite word and the prefix “el” is simply sir or lord. The Bible has used many words from the culture like the greek “theos”; god and that is why it is so universal and not so much one ethnic group. I think this is a strong point rather than trying to become Arabic.

        Your explanations of Tawheed and Shirk are definitely the main points. I think Christians should realize that this is the central issue. We can argue about many minor details but it helps to get to the point. And I realize that when Muhammad went back to Medina for the first jihad he was waring against shirk; idolatry (Surah 4:116). Do I understand this correctly?

      • Hi Mark

        (116. Verily, Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom He wills, sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, has indeed strayed far away.) (117. They invoke nothing but female deities besides Him (Allah), and they invoke nothing but Shaytan, a persistent rebel!) (118. Allah cursed him. And he ﴿Shaytan﴾ said: “I will take an appointed portion of your servants.”) (119. “Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah.” And whoever takes Shaytan as a Wali instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss.) (120. He ﴿Shaytan﴾ makes promises to them, and arouses in them false desires; and Shaytan’s promises are nothing but deceptions.) (121. The dwelling of such (people) is Hell, and they will find no way of escape from it.) (122. And those who believe and do righteous good deeds, We shall admit them to the Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. in Paradise) to dwell therein forever. Allah’s promise is the truth; and whose words can be truer than those of Allah)
        This is from http://www.qtafsir.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=605&Itemid=59#1

        When Prophet Muhammad ( peace be upon him) returned to Makkah after his Hijra to Medinah, and when Allah granted the Muslims Victory over the polytheists in Makkah, there were over 300 idols in the Kaaba. Prophet Muhammad entered the Kaaba and destroyed.

        Idolaltry /shirk is a major sin which we have been told by Allah (swt) that He will not Forgive though He Can Forgive Anything else if He Wills.
        Verily, Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom He wills, sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, has indeed strayed far away.)(4:116)

        I hope this is of some help

      • “In this sense the word God may not be good translation.”
        Allaah should only be transliterated not translated.
        “Christians would see all but maybe 3 as consistent with our Creator as described in scripture. ”
        What are they?
        “that is why it is so universal and not so much one ethnic group.”
        In fact, Allaah intended Islam as a universal religion as evident from explicit statements in Qur’aan-ul-Hakeem.Like, someone said:Islam is universal Judaism.Perhaps because circumcision is a part of Islam.I myself am a non-Arab(‘Ajami) Muslim.

    • “I think Christians should realize that this is the central issue. ”
      Dear maark
      The following link would InshaaAllaah(God willing) benefit you in Dunyaa(Earthly Life) and Aakhirah(Life after Death) to understand the central faith(Eemaan) issues.
      For Najaat(Salvation) Eemaan in Tawheed and Eemaan in Risaalah of Muhammad sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wasallam is essential.
      In other words:
      Laa ilaaha illAllaah
      Muhammad-ur-Rasool-ul-(A)llaah.

  4. As-salaamu-alaikum. Aahhh. This is real. So unique and beautiful. All Praises be to Allaah. The Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Most Truthful. Profound is complete and unique. Best to be. Shallow is common but empty. Purity frees us better than liberty. Islam makes us the best friends freed from vanity. Humility for Allaah (G-d) is better than agreeable human beings. I love you. Stay true. Stay beautiful, please. May Allaah Protect and show Mercy. <3

    Sincerely yours with warm regards,
    Khalid

  5. Pingback: AL-QA’IM-The Self-Sustaining | Islamic Times and Reflections

  6. I read 99 names for Allah and not 1 is Love. Does Allah not Love ?In my Christian faith the Lords love created (us) and saved (us) as well. John 3:16 For God so loved the world….. Does a man not love his own child? Where did love come from…assureadly from our Lord.

  7. “Does a man not love his own child”
    In Islam,the maternal love with which a mother loves her children is more emphasized.It is said that Allâh is 70-fold more Loving than a mother.Allâh’ name ar-Raheem(The Compassionate,The Merciful) comes from a root word(masdar) which is shared by the word for mother’s womb.Muslims most profusely use this name in their daily liturgy of Salâh 5 times a day.
    Also, there are 114 Soorahs in Qur’ân-ul-Hakeem, and in the beginning of 113 of them, the formula of Tasmiyah(which refers to the act of taking The Ism(Name) of Allâh) is used.So, one time less than everytime a Muslim starts reciting a Soorah of Qur’ân,he or she invokes two names of Allâh- ar-Rahmân and ar-Raheem both of them emphasize the Loving attributes of Allâh.

    Hence,in the 24-hours of Muslim daily life, a Muslim invokes maternally similar but more profoundly maternal aspect of Allâh’s Love, more than anyone else on the planet.

    The Christian narrative about Islam gives Muslim an opportunity to explain Islam.

  8. Thanks for answering my question-If you dont mind I have several more.

    #1 I noticed some other names “Most Merciful” “Most Compassionate”
    It is said that in Islam God gave us (free will) to choose”right from wrong”?
    Why is it that in Islamic socities if you convert to another religion it is permitted that they be put to death? That doesnt sound like the same belief to me.Thats not free will.

    #2 It is said when we die our sins will be weighed. My question is: If (I) commit adultery,and steal, today, and then tomorrow (I) do three(3) good deeds and continue that pattern,how is it then I would ever be condemned? Not taking in consideration which faith I’m from whether it be Islam,Christian etc.

    • Hello and welcome back to the blog and thank you for your questions
      Regarding your questions…
      #1 Please see this Video which hopefully will enable you to understand the Islamic position with regards to apostasy

      #2 We all have abstain from sins. Our intention should be to keep ourselves away from all bad acts. In the case of Muslims and Islam and sins:

      We believe that there is going to be a Day of Judgement and that Allah, The Most High is the Most Just of Judges.

      We as humans should aim to do our very as I mentioned above to keep away from sins.

      If we (unintentionally) sin, we can repent and seek God’s forgiveness.

      But if we are calculating as you mentioned eg say I will sin today and try to balance it out tomorrow, it is impossible for us to judge and be confident in the balance of our sins as we as humans do not know the weight of each sin. God Only Knows. How can we feel secure and confident for salvation by using this method?

      Of course some sins are more grievous than others and we have been informed about them in the Qur’an which we Muslims believe is the word of God.

      The Qur’an has used the word “Kabaa’ir” to imply big sins. According to the Qur’an a person should be very mindful of the “Kabaa’ir”. If a person saves himself from “Kabaa’ir”, God, with His all encompassing mercy shall forgive his smaller sins (see Al-Nisaa 4: 31, Al-Shooraa 42: 37, Al-Najam 53: 32).

      No body knows which sins will be forgiven and which won’t. Every person Allah Almighty created will be Judged uniquely. His life record will be played before him, and all of the good and bad deeds he committed will be pointed out for him. Allah Almighty will then decide on sentencing the person to Hell or Heaven: “Then shall anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom’s weight of evil, shall see it. (The Noble Quran, 99:7-8)”

      We Do Not Know and He Knows

      I hope I have answered your questions

    • Its 2 year old discussion,yet im leaving cmnts with hope that you will some day..

      Q 1 : Do you know Christians also Killed Other Christians just for having different beliefs ? Specially chk during reformation ?

      in 12th or 14 th century Christians Burned around 250 other Christians Alive for having different faith.

      oh BURNING Alive is Fav method of Christians to Kill those who belief different. In London in 14th century millions died….protestant killed catholic…catholic killed protestant.

      So its not something special done only in Islam. you need to read history…
      ===========
      Q 2 :

      If you are doing with plan…then surely you will regret ur acts.. God knows that you are trying to play game..you can fool us…NOT HIM.

      A sin can be forgiven…if person regret his act and wish to never do this again…then God knows whats inside his heart.

      bytheway….also know that Good Deeds will not take us heaven…ONLY Allah (God) Mercy can,. this mercy you can get,if you obeyed him..

      Even According to Bible God fulfilled his promise given to Abraham becoz Abraham Obeyed him.

  9. Thanks for answering these questions. I always figured it was better to go to someone who understands their religion.
    I have Muslim friends..and they know im Christian and when I ask questions they become guarded when I ask questions.
    I have another set of questions if you dont mind-

    #1 It said that one of Muhammads wife A’ishah was as young as 6yrs,but that”encounters “didnt begin till she was 9yrs,what God would ever bless that.

    #2 In the bible 1 John 4:1 -Beloved do not believe every spirit,but test the spirits,whether they are of God;because many false prophets have gone out in the world. It is said that when Muhammad first received “revelations” he was
    disturbed,but was reassured by his wife. I have found no evidence Muhammad tested any spirit,and nor is there any evidence supporting that God spoke to his wife,confirming his revelations coming from God.So where is there evidence in the qur’an supporting these? As you are aware there are many religions claiming an “Angel” or “Jinn”or “Buddah” revealed “Gods” word.

    Thank you for answering my questions,I as a God Loving Christian am appreciative of your answers,I have heard answers before but very vague responses,and with your answers to my questions,it will help with misconceptions that I may have had.Thanks again.

    • Joseph thank you for asking those questions.
      I am hoping to answer#2 in detail very soon.
      But just now regarding #1
      Before I reverted to Islam I was asking in a similar manner and similar questions, including #1
      I was told that:
      First I had to understand the character of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) i.e
      prior to his marriage to the Mother of the Believers, Aisha (ra), he was married to a lady much older than himself, Khadijah (ra), who was a widow. They remained happily married until her death, 25 years later.
      That is a solid indication that the person concerned, in this case our prophet(pbuh) was not polygamous or interested in young age brides.
      Also we have to look at the times. The bride being of a young age was not unusual in those days. If it was the enemies of the Prophet would have picked on the issue and they would have made a feast of it.
      The prophet (pbuh) married Aish(ra) with the permission of her parents and I will stress on the Married
      Aisha(ra) loved the Prophet (pbuh) very much and at times she was jealous of his other wives. Would anyone who was forced into such a marriage exhibit feelings of love and devotion?
      The prophet (pbuh) passed away in her arms.
      The marriage was with the permission of Allah (swt), and Aisha (ra) became a scholar and a narrator of Ahadeeth. She as a member of the Prophet’s household, fresh, intelligent and young, lived long after the prophet’s death to offer a mega contribution to Islam and Muslims.

      Joseph, I have to point out that I am not a scholar and as such I am very careful to what I write or say.

      I am happy to share what I know but I could also make errors.

      I will find suitable articles from reliable scholars on the issues and get back to you.

      Kind Regards

    • #2 In the bible 1 John 4:1 -Beloved do not believe every spirit,but test the spirits,whether they are of God;because many false prophets have gone out in the world. It is said that when Muhammad first received “revelations” he was
      disturbed,but was reassured by his wife. I have found no evidence Muhammad tested any spirit,and nor is there any evidence supporting that God spoke to his wife,confirming his revelations coming from God.So where is there evidence in the qur’an supporting these? As you are aware there are many religions claiming an “Angel” or “Jinn”or “Buddah” revealed “Gods” word.

      As far as Muslims are concerned The Qur’an is the Word of the One and Only True God, my God and yours, Our Creator.
      If you read the Qur’an you will be left in no doubt that The Author is not of the Human kind but it is the Word of Allah, The Exalted.

      The Spirit is no other than the Angel Gabriel ( peace be upon him). The same Angel who brought the revelations to the prophets ( peace be upon them all).

      In the Qur’an we read:

      And indeed, We gave Mûsa (Moses) the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers. And We gave ‘Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (gabriel)]. Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed. (Al-Baqarah 2:87)

      Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ): “Whoever is an enemy to Jibrael (gabriel) (let him die in his fury), for indeed he has brought it (this Qur’ân) down to your heart by Allâh’s Permission, confirming what came before it [i.e. the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] and guidance and glad tidings for the believers. (Al-Baqarah 2:97)

      And there are more verses to confirm the same.

      The prophet (pbuh) was of course in a situation when he received the first revelation as we or any human being would be if something like that was to happen to us.

      And he did run to his wife ( a woman ) for comfort and reassurance.

      O you (Muhammad SAW) enveloped (in garments)! (Al-Muddaththir 74:1)

      Arise and warn! (Al-Muddaththir 74:2)

      We believe that the Bible contains some of the word of God, but as you know it has been altered with the many editions and translations etc.

      Joseph, I would like to invite you to the truth, The Religion of Islaam.

      Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was the Last and Final prophet and Islam is the Perfect Religion of God.

      Islam is not a new Religion and prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not bring a New Message .

      It is the same Message that all the Prophets brought.

      To Believe and Worship God without any partners.

      Joseph, I am so glad that you sent your questions:)

    • //#1 It said that one of Muhammads wife A’ishah was as young as 6yrs,but that”encounters “didnt begin till she was 9yrs,what God would ever bless that.//

      What was the age of Mary When she became pregnant ? history says between 11-13 ,before they used to get married early.

      please know that By Nature A Girl turn into women ,when her periods are started..this is a sign that girl turned in to women.in some communities the first period is celebrated by families… Aisha r.a periods started before she was transferred to prophet house..

      We don;t have enough and clear history written about her..but yet there are some ways to know her age by calculating the important events in those days. for example :

      1) Aisha R.A joined prophet house…after 3 years there was a war…the first battle in islamic history…she was involved in this battle… don;t tell me child join battle..

      =========================
      Now A List of Important points

      muhammad s.a.w was given advice by a lady to marry Aisha.

      Aisha R.A was already Engaged with some1 else.
      She was involved in war.
      Aisha R.A mother and other women wish her good luck.those Women were Very Happy.

      After Hijarah….It was Aisha Father….who asked prophet that why he is not taking wife with himself…he said he don’t have enough money to pay mohardain to Aisha.

      Were all these people Mad ? Didn’t Mother know What will happen and where she is going..if there was some harm then surely parents will denie.but in this case her father requested prophet to take her home.

      i hope this helps you understand matter.

  10. Thanks for answering my questions.
    I will decline the offer.
    Jesus showed many signs of his divine authority through healings,casting out demons,and through his Love,Grace.He (Jesus) spread the truth through Love,unlike Muhammad through the sword.Islam suppresses people .Why is it that so many muslims leave their Islamic country and go to Christian countries…its because they seek freedom. True followers of Christ dont force their religion.I watched the youtube clip you suggested.There was a problem,that if you leave Islam its only death if you talk bad about Islam..if someone leaves it, then tell someone you are no longer Muslim.
    Just by saying that,they are rejecting already the Qu’ran.Which means “DEATH”.
    In the Qu’ran it is said Allah offered free will.Sure doesnt sound like Muslims offer the same.Its illegal to even have a bible in many Muslim countries.

    Again I do appreciate your responses.But I will always defend what I know is TRUTH.

    • You are very welcome. It was a pleasure answering your questions.
      There is no compulsion in Religion.
      I would like to add that all the Prophets were given miracles.
      At the time of Moses(pbuh) the people excelled in Magic thus he was given the miracle of his staff turning into a snake and his hand turning white.
      At the time of Jesus (pbuh) the people excelled in medicine thus the miracles of curing the lepers and rising the dead by the permission of God.
      Also the miracles lasted for however long the Prophets were alive.
      Prophet Muhammad was given the Qur’an as the Arabs of his time were excellent in poetry.
      The Qur’an has been preserved and is a miracle in eloquence and content.

      With regards to the Video it is very important not to misinterpret and add our own ideas or reading inaccuracies behind the words.

      It has really been a pleasure.

      Many thanks

      At the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) the Arabs were very eloquent in poetry thus Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was given the Qur’an

    • Greetings. You said Jesus (Prophet of G-d pbuh) was loving but your words are (arrogant) prejudice. Ironically. The ego breeds prejudice. To be honest; not ego-defensive. America has manipulative freedom. Most of its terrorists/murderers are (were) Christian. You know why? Cause it’s free to lie about its freedom and justice. Christopher Columbus (celebrated as a hero) was America’s Most Wicked (Christian). Honesty is more needed than love and kindness. Thus, blame the ego and its faulty freedom to be true/humble. The gospel is truer than the bible. I’m Muslim but understand that. A few true Christians believe Jesus (pbuh) was only a Prophet. Most don’t. Hope that’s not you. Please, respect Muslims and Jews as you want Christians to be. The same goes for all countries (Jewish, Christian, or Islamic). Sin is a selfish (egoistic) intention; not opinion. To defend humility (virtue) is wiser than to defend what we say is Truth. Respect is for all the Prophets (pbut) whom we should fairly regard. Nothing and no one deserves blame except materialism and egoists. The greatest freedom is humble and sincere (without ego/deceit).

  11. Assalâmu ‘alâ manittab’al-Hudâ
    Peace and Salâm be upon whom who follow Guidance and Hudâ

    I was trying to prepare a systematic set of answers to Joseph’s questions, but he has said too many things which independently need refutation.So, I may have not been able to give the attention that I had initially intended to give to each question in a short time.

    “Why is it that in Islamic socities if you convert to another religion it is permitted that they be put to death?”

    Divide this question into two parts.
    i)Conversion from Islam to Christianity
    Some Muslims might want to convert to Christianity for worldly reasons like a luxurious lifestyle in the West, yet lack of religious appeal of Christianity to Muslims is admitted even by a Catholic in the following words:
    “Islam is apparently unconvertible. The missionary efforts made by great Catholic orders which have been occupied in trying to turn Mohammedans into Christians for nearly 400 years have everywhere wholly failed. We have in some places driven the Mohammedan master out and freed his Christian subjects from Mohammedan control, but we have had hardly any effect in converting individual Mohammedans….”

    ii)Conversion from Islam to non-Christian religions
    I think we should agree on the religions like Hinduism,Sikhism,Buddhism,Taoism,Atheism,Agnosticism,Secularism,Humanism,Materialism being false religions not from God.

    Don’t think from the perspective of Shaitânic(Satanic) liberalism according to which man can even deny God but from the perspective of Aakhirah(the eternal life which starts the moment we die).It is a principle of legal psychology that what is feared most deters most.Allâh wants us to go to Jannah by renouncing Shirk(Ascribing partners to Allâh) . Islam treats other religions and ideologies as religions and ideologies that serve Shaitân(Satan).Take the example of trinitarian idolatry which is a gross violation of the First Commandment of Tawheed(Strict Islamic Unitarianism).

    http://hamzatzortzis.blogspot.com/2010/04/podcast-doctrine-of-trinity-with-adnan.html


    Even in the distorted versions of Tawraat and Injeel, capital punishment is prescribed for idolatry(a subset of Shirk).If you die, believing in trinitarian idolatry, you would not be forgiven.Shirk is the Only Unforgivable in Islam.
    In Soorah an-Nisâ,Allâh says:
    116. Allah forgiveth not (the sin of) Shirk (Joining other gods) with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one who joins other gods with Allah, Hath strayed far, far away (from the right)

    http://www.englishkuran.com/4-an-nisa-women/

    Hence, Allâh doesn’t want us to go into Jahannam(Hellfire).If you think that Muslims will burn in Jahannam inspite of strict unitarianism, you should substantiate it, and should advocate the same for Christians if you really believe in the truth of Christianity- a name which doesn’t exist in man-made Bible.In non-Islamic societies, religion is not taken seriously.People switch religions like they switch channels on TV.This also discourages non-serious converts to Islam.Those who see the truth of Islam convert inspite of knowing this.I know that this is a difficult question, but all Muslims whose hearts affirm the intrinsic truth of Islam should be religiously capable to defend this, to be able to advocate its enforcement, to deter humanity from its non-serious attitude towards religion.Even when this law is not enforced,its psychological wisdoms are great because it attracts the curiosity of non-Muslims about Islam.

    However, there is no ideal Islamic Kingdom on the planet now to enforce this law, but when Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Peace be upon Him, will descend, there would be no problem for Christians when He will enforce this law.

    Allâh says about Islam(Obedience to Allâh):
    2:132 And this was the legacy that Abraham left to his sons, and so did Jacob; “Oh my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; then DIE NOT except in the Faith of ISLAM.(Obedience to God)”
    2:133 Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold, he said to his sons: “What will ye worship after me?” They said: “We shall worship Thy Allah and the Allah of thy fathers, of Abraham, Isma’il and Isaac,- the one (True) Allah. To Him we bow (in ISLAM).”
    2:136 Say ye: “We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to Allah (in ISLAM).”
    2:208 O ye who believe! Enter into ISLAM whole-heartedly; and FOLLOW NOT the footsteps of the evil one; for he is to you an avowed enemy.
    3:19 The RELIGION before Allah is ISLAM (submission to His Will): Nor did the People of the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.
    3:67 Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to Allah’s (Which is ISLAM), and HE JOINED NOT GODS with Allah.
    3:83 Do they seek for other than the Religion of Allah.-while all creatures in the heavens and on earth have, willing or unwilling, bowed to His Will (Accepted ISLAM), and to Him shall they all be brought back.
    3:84 Say: “We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (in ISLAM).”
    3:85 If anyone desires a religion other than ISLAM (submission to Allah), NEVER WILL IT BE ACCEPTED OF HIM; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).
    3:102 O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and DIE NOT except in a state of ISLAM.
    5:3….This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day HAVE I PERFECTED YOUR RELIGION for you, completed My favour upon you, and have CHOSEN FOR YOU ISLAM AS YOUR RELIGION. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, Allah is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
    6:14 Say: “Shall I take for my protector any other than Allah, the Maker of the heavens and the earth? And He it is that feedeth but is not fed.” Say: “Nay! but I am commanded to be the first of those who bow to Allah (in ISLAM), and BE NOT THOU of the company of those WHO JOIN GODS with Allah.”
    6:125 Those whom Allah (in His plan) willeth to guide,- HE OPENETH THEIR BREAST(THEIR HEART) FOR ISLAM; those whom He willeth to leave straying,- He maketh their breast close and constricted, as if they had to climb up to the skies: thus doth Allah (heap) the penalty on those who refuse to believe.
    29:46 And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, “We BELIEVE IN the revelation which has come down TO US and in that which came down TO YOU; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him we bow (in ISLAM).”
    39:22 Is one whose heart Allah has opened to ISLAM, so that he has received Enlightenment from Allah, (no better than one hard-hearted)? Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating the praises of Allah. they are manifestly wandering (in error)!
    40:66 Say: “I HAVE BEEN FORBIDDEN TO INVOKE those whom ye invoke besides Allah,- seeing that the Clear Signs have come to me from my Lord; and I have been commanded to bow (in ISLAM) to the Lord of the Worlds.”
    41:33 Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, “I am of those who bow in ISLAM”?

    “He (Jesus) spread the truth through Love,unlike Muhammad through the sword.”
    Muhammad,Peace be upon Him spread the truth like Moses,Peace be upon Him who used sword for just reasons, as well as, Jesus,Peace be upon Him, who would use sword for religious justice and religious morality of Islam to prevail, as well as, to kill Antichrist when Allâh causes Him to descend.
    34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword”

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+10:34&version=NIV

    However,sword is not synonymous to Coercion(Ikrâh) to accept Islam which is harâm(illegal) in Islam.Islam is unique in its categorical and systematic dealing with the important subject of Ikrâh, unlike all other religions which are not as clear as is Islam.

    “Islam suppresses people .Why is it that so many muslims leave their Islamic country and go to Christian countries…its because they seek freedom. ”
    Not every Muslim ,but many Muslims don’t go to Christian countries for religious reasons but worldly reasons like education like my father who studied in US and sometimes for worldly freedoms like illegal(harâm) sex outside marriage(nikâh) which is illegal in Islamic countries.So, if you equate what you should consider as Christian morals as suppression, then the difference between Christians and non-Christians is diminished.

    “True followers of Christ dont force their religion.”
    Nor will Muslims.
    “In the Qu’ran it is said Allah offered free will.Sure doesnt sound like Muslims offer the same.”
    Allâh wants mankind to use free will to choose Tawheed(strict Islamic unitarianism) and Jannah(Paradise), not the path of Shirk(ascribing partners to God like in trinitarian or incarnation idolatry).
    “Its illegal to even have a bible in many Muslim countries.”
    The prevalence of sins in historically Biblical countries vindicates the statement of Jesus,Peace be upon Him, that Bible is not a tree planted by God but Injeel(Pristine Gospel-Word of God that was given to Jesus,Peace be upon Him).By their fruits you shall know them.
    “But I will always defend what I know is TRUTH.”
    Bible indicates the advent of a Spirit of Truth to come after Jesus,Peace be upon Him.

    But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come.

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+16:13&version=NIV

    In Soorah an-Najm, Allâh says:
    3. Nor does He say (aught) of (his own) Desire.

    4. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him

    http://www.englishkuran.com/53-an-najm-the-star/

    “Jesus showed many signs of his divine authority through healings,casting out demons.”
    Muhammad sall Allâhu ‘alaihi wasallam also showed miracles to pagans of His times like Splitting of Moon.
    Anas reported that the people of Mecca demanded from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) that He should show them (some) signs (miracles) and He showed tlicin the splitting of the moon.

    http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/muslim/039.smt.html#039.6728

    “tlicin” is some mistake.

    In Soorah al-Qamar,Allâh says:
    1. The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.

    2. But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, “This is (but) transient magic.”

    3. They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time.

    4. There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them),

    5. Mature wisdom;- but (the preaching of) Warners profits them not.

    http://www.englishkuran.com/54-al-qamar-the-moon/

    But, Qur’ân-ul-Hakeem is an ever greater Miracle.

    http://theinimitablequran.com/

    The Prophet said, “Every Prophet was given miracles because of which people believed, but what I have been given, is Divine Inspiration which Allah has revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will outnumber the followers of the other Prophets on the Day of Resurrection.”

    http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/061.sbt.html#006.061.504

    The Prophet said, “There was no prophet among the prophets but was given miracles because of which people had security or had belief, but what I was given was the Divine Inspiration which Allah revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will be more than those of any other prophet on the Day of Resurrection.”

    http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/092.sbt.html#009.092.379

    “Beloved do not believe every spirit,but test the spirits,whether they are of God”
    It indicates the possibility of at least one true Prophet.Islam is categorical about no future true prophet unlike Jesus,Peace be upon Him, who didn’t say that all prophets after me would be false prophets.By their fruits you shall know them.Islam gives me the strength to resist temptations so it can’t be from Shaitân(Satan).

    “nor is there any evidence supporting that God spoke to his wife,confirming his revelations coming from God.”
    According to one tradition, she took the Prophet (peace be upon him) to Waraqah ibn Nawfal the next morning.Another tradition suggests that the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned the matter to his close confidant and companion, Abu Bakr, and requested him to arrange a meeting with Waraqah. A Christian by religion, Waraqah ibn Nawfal was very old at the time, and had lost his eyesight. When the Prophet (peace be upon him) saw him and narrated the incident, Waraqah burst forth without any hesitation: “O Muhammad! If what you have just narrated is correct, your namus resembles that of Moses (peace be upon him).” The word ‘namus’ is used for honour in Urdu. Obviously this is not the sense of Waraqah’s statement. Some commentators suggest that the word means “reliable” or “trustworthy.” This too is not applicable to the context. Some scholars have suggested that namus was the name given to Gabriel. But even this meaning is not relevant. In Islamic literature, Gabriel is referred to a the Trustworthy Soul, al-Rah al-Amin (26:193). I think that namus, originally an alien word, was Arabicised. It is the Greek word Nomos. In the Greek language, the Torah is called Nomos i.e. Law. In other words, Wanqah ibn Nawfal stated that what he had heard from the Prophet (peace be upon him) resembled the Torah of Moses and this meaning seems to be most relevant and reasonable.

  12. Thanks for your answers.
    I do not believe in three” Gods” I beieve God is omnipresent meaning he is in all places at any and all times.God has three distinct natures(Father,Son,Holy Spirit) they are all One. If you read “Old Testament” peoples sins we’re forgiven by the sacraficing of “perfect lambs” but because of greed and disobedience the “temple elders” would make people buy animals inside the gates regardless if others lambs where perfect or not, at inflated prices meaning the poor could not have their sacrifices taken place to have their sins forgiven that is why”the perfect Lamb” came so all could be forgiven. I am a Christian and I do not seek materialism.I seek my Father who is the great “I AM”. There was a reply that because of advanced medicine healings took place-Medicine cannot raise people from the dead,feed the thousands and many more.Also you mentioned people might convert to the”Western ways” for unpure reasons.In the west we all have freedom Mulims,Christians etc. without persecution unlike controlled societies.NOTE:Christianity originated from the “EAST”.I think everyone can learn from this blessed quote-“YOU HAVE HEARD THAT IT WAS SAID,YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AND HATE YOUR ENEMY. BUT “I”(Jesus) SAY TO YOU,LOVE YOUR ENEMIES,BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE YOU,DO GOOD TO THOSE WHO HATE YOU,AND PRAY FOR THOSE WHO SPITEFULLY USE YOU AND PERSECUTE YOU, Matthew 5:43-44.- LOVE IS GREAT.I ask all look at the Character of Muhammad and Jesus.Who shows a pure and loving character.Who resembles God more.THAT IS THE ANSWER.

    • “I am a Christian and I do not seek materialism.”
      If this is true, you will fall in love with Islam,inshaaAllaah.

      “that is why”the perfect Lamb” came so all could be forgiven.”

      Allaah is Al-Hayy(Forever Alive).He never dies.Allaah is Al-Ghafoor(The Forgiver).No one else has the right to forgive sins.We can only pray to Allaah and do good deeds for our Forgiveness and the Forgiveness of others.This opens the door of hedonism with false hopes from God through which Satan has deceived billions.

      “In the west we all have freedom Mulims,Christians etc. without persecution unlike controlled societies.”
      “I ask all look at the Character of Muhammad and Jesus.”

      Muslims have a religious duty not to persecute any Jew or Christian.
      The following illustrates the Character of The Last Apostle of God(May God bless Him and grant Him peace).
      The Last Apostle of God(May God bless Him and grant Him peace) said:”On the Day of Resurrection(Day of Rising from the dead,Yawm-ul-Qiyâmah) I shall dispute with anyone who oppresses a person from among the People of the Covenant, or infringes on his right, or puts a responsibility on him which is beyond his strength or takes something from him against his will.”
      People of the Covenant refers to a non-Muslim living in an Islamic Kingdom.

      It is illegal for Muslims here to burn Torah and Gospel even in their distorted forms which contain some remnants of Divine Truth for which Qur’aan is the Benchmark of Truth, as well as it is illegal to blaspheme Prophets,Peace be upon them, including Jesus,Peace be upon Him.I am shocked to find statements that Jesus,Peace be upon Him, was a Sodomite by people living in the West.Muslims believe in God’s Kingdom and any genuinely religious individual cannot use pejorative titles for God’s Kingdom.

      “There was a reply that because of advanced medicine healings took place-Medicine cannot raise people from the dead,feed the thousands and many more.”
      You are right,Joseph.
      Allaah gave His Apostles,Peace be upon them, miracles which they performed with Allaah’s Leave(biIdhnillaah) . Allaah gave miracles to Moses,Peace be upon Him , and Jesus,Peace be upon Him, so that people may believe that Allaah sent them.Allaah gave Muhammad sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wasallam the greatest miracle of Qur’aan, through which Allaah will cause Disbelief,Denial of Truth of One God and Faithlessness to finally end in the world.

      In Soorah Aali ‘Imraan,Allaah The Exalted says:

      45. Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah.

      46. “He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous.”

      47. She said: “O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?” He said: “Even so: Allah createth what He willeth: When He hath decreed a plan, He but saith to it, ‘Be,’ and it is!

      48. “And Allah will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel,

      49. “And (appoint him) an apostle to the Children of Israel, (with this message): “‘I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah’s Leave: And I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead, by Allah’s Leave; and I declare to you what ye eat, and what ye store in your houses. Surely therein is a Sign for you if ye did believe;

      50. “‘(I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (Before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah, and obey me.

      51. “‘It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a Way that is straight.’”

      52. When Jesus found Unbelief(Kufr) on their part He said: “Who will be My helpers to (the work of) Allah.” Said the disciples: “We are Allah’s Helpers: We believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims(Those who love and obey Allaah and His Apostles,Peace be upon them)

      http://www.englishkuran.com/al-imran-the-family-of-imran/

      “God has three distinct natures(Father,Son,Holy Spirit)”
      If this had not been Shirk and idolatry you would not have needed to suffix the following:
      ” they are all One. ”

      Allaah has given Muslims a duty to warn Christians not to destroy their eternal Life after Death of Aakhirah by Shirk.

      5:73 They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.

      Allaah The Exalted says:
      56. It is true thou wilt not be able to guide every one, whom thou lovest; but Allah guides those whom He will and He knows best those who receive guidance.
