  •  
    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 47:
    • One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, ( The angel ) Gabriel came and asked , “ What is faith ? "
    • Allah's Apostle replied ,
    • ' Faith is to believe
    • in Allah ,
    • His angels ,
    • ( the ) meeting with Him ,
    • His Apostles ,
    • and to believe in Resurrection ."
    • Then he further asked, “ What is Islam ? "
    • Allah's Apostle replied ,
    • " To worship Allah Alone and none else,
    • to offer prayers perfectly
    • to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat)
    • and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan .“
  • Six Articles of Belief

    • 2. Belief in all the prophets and messengers sent by God.
      • 124,000 prophets, of whom 313 are also messengers
      • 25 of these messengers are very important (mentioned in the Quran)
    • 3. Belief in the books sent by God:
      • The Suhuf scripts of Abraham

  • Qur'an 005.069 “Surely, those who believe and those who are Jews, Sabians and Christians, whosoever believed in Allah and the Last Day, and worked good, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve,” The Noble Qur’an says: “This verse should not be misinterpreted. It was abrogated by 3:85 ( “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (Surrender), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who are losers.” ) . After the coming of Prophet Muhammad no other religion except Islam will be accepted from anyone.” Abrogated - cancelled by a later revelation. Note: the later revelation is in a verse that comes numerically before this earlier verse. The surahs of Qur’an are ordered by length and usage, not by chronology. The Nobel Qur’an translation lists some of the verses considered to be abrogated. Will all those who worship one Almighty God go to heaven. Better read the fine print!
  • Is the God of the Bible the God of the Qur’an? Is Allah just the Arabic word for God ? Allah is a name. . . . . . . . . . . . . God is a title. The word for god in Arabic is ilah. Allah must be capitalized, it cannot be plural or female. The word for gods (plural) in Arabic is aliha. and goddess is ilaahaat. Noble Qur’an 29: 46 And argue not with the people of the Scripture ( Jews and Christians ), unless it be in ( a way ) that is better ( with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islâmic Monotheism with His Verses ), except with such of them as do wrong, and say ( to them ): "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilâh ( God ) and your Ilâh ( God ) is One ( i.e. Allâh ), and to Him we have submitted ( as Muslims )." Noble Qur’an 38: 5-6 Has he made the âliha ( gods ) ( all ) into One Ilâh ( God - Allâh ) . Verily, this is a curious thing! And the leaders among them went about (saying): "Go on, and remain constant to your âliha ( gods ) ! Verily, This is a thing designed ( against you )!
  • Thou shalt have no other Gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Honor thy father and thy mother. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not covet. The 10 Commandments Excerpts from Exodus 20: Translated “the LORD” 6,521 times throughout the Old Testament. The God of the Bible has a Name; and it’s not Allah. THE HOLY BIBLE Exodus 6:3 And I appeared 7200 unto 413 Abraham, 85 unto 413 Isaac, 3327 and unto 413 Jacob, 3290 by the name of God 410 Almighty, 7706 but by my name 8034 JEHOVAH 3068 was I not 3808 known 3045 to them. THE HOLY BIBLE Genesis 2:4 These 428 are the generations 8435 of the heavens 8064 and of the earth 776 when they were created, 1254 in the day 3117 that the LORD 3068 God 430 made 6213 the earth 776 and the heavens, 8064 When Jews came across God’s name in their scripture they pronounced “Lord.” The Christian writers who translated the Bible followed the example when possible.
  • Muslims WILL NOT pray to God by his Biblical name ! Therefore: Muslims agree Allah is not JEHOVAH Therefore: The God of Bible is NOT the God of the Qur’an . THE HOLY BIBLE Isaiah 45:1 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus , … Isaiah 45:12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I , even my hands , have stretched out the heavens , and all their host have I commanded. Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens ; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD ; and there is none else . Isaiah 45:21 ... who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me ; a just God and a Savior ; there is none beside me . THE NOBEL QUR’AN 2:21 O mankind! Worship your Lord ( Allâh ), Who created you and those who were before you so that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious). 2:22 Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allâh (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped ). 2:23 And if you (Arab pagans, Jews, and Christians) are in doubt concerning that which We have sent down to Our slave (Muhammad Peace be upon him ), then produce a Sûrah (chapter) of the like thereof and call your witnesses (supporters and helpers) besides Allâh, if you are truthful. So Who is the Creator?

So Who is the Creator? 100 years before it happened; The God of the Bible wrote a note to a pagan king who would free his people from captivity after Israel was conquered by Babylon. Before his people had been defeated. Before this king had been born. Calling this king by name and describing details of the conquest of Babylon. Then God said to Cyrus, “I have made the earth, … I, even my hands, … I am the Lord and there is none else. … who hath declared this from ancient times.” Cyrus allowed the Jews to return and resettle Israel after 70 years of being captivity.

So Who is the Creator? Mohammed told those of other religions, if they doubt his prophethood, to produce a Surah (Qur’an Chapter) like unto his. [remember Mohammed could not write ] [This would be an Arabic poem in rhyming meter and form.]

    Belief in Allah ( The God of Islam ).
  • This is why Islam is viewed as a tolerant and inclusive religion.
    • If you believe in teachings of ____________ or the books of __________.
    • Islam accepts that God has spoken to many people through many prophets.
    • And that all have proclaimed that man must submit to the will of God. (Islam)
    • ( Just what rituals the God of the universe wants you to submit to in Islam,
    • we will deal with in the Pillars of Faith section. )
    • They say God, ( your God) , has spoken last through the prophet Mohammed.
    • His message is to all mankind and has been preserved in the Qur’an.
    • What this means is:
    • The books or teaching you hold sacred have been corrupted.
    • Mohammed and the Qur’an have the only true uncorrupted message left.
    • 2. Belief in all the prophets and messengers sent by God.

      • 25 of these messengers are very important (mentioned in the Quran)
  • 123,925 other prophets left un-named … 288 other holy books given and lost …
  • The books by Biblical Prophets talked about in the Qur’an are not the same as the books in the Bible attributed to these prophets since they say and do different things than in the Qur’an stories.
  • Example: The Prophet Lot, Abraham’s Nephew Bible Quran Lot is not a prophet. Lot is a prophet. Sent to warn Sodom. Lived in Sodom by Choice. Two angels tell him to escape. Two angels tell him to escape. Wife looks back and becomes a salt pillar. Wife stays behind. Escapes with two daughters. Escapes with two daughters.
  • Holy Bible Genesis 19: 29 – 38 The Bible continues Lot’s Story: And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain , that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow , … And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain , and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave , he and his two daughters . And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old , and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine , and we will lie with him , that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father ; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. … And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him ; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father . And the firstborn bore a son , and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. And the younger , she also bore a son , and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

And the younger , she also bore a son , and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day. How dare you say such things about the Prophet Lot (PBUH) ! No prophet of Allah could ever do that ! You Lie ! The Noble Qur’an says , “But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [ i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughter s ]. Surah 51 THE DISPERSING: v.36 Muslims agree the Qur’an Prophets are not the same as the Bible characters.
  • The Holy Bible Luke 17:28 - 33 Jesus refers to Lot … 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot ; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all . 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop , and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away : and he that is in the field , let him likewise not return back . … 32 Remember Lot's wife . 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.  
  • The Holy Bible 2 nd Peter 2: 6 - 9 Jesus’ desciples refer to Lot … 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly ; 7 And delivered just Lot , vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked : 8 ( For that righteous man dwelling among them , in seeing and hearing , vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds ); 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations , and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished :
  • Surah 11 HUD 77. And when Our Messengers came to Lout ( Lot ), he was grieved on their account and felt himself straitened for them ( lest the town people should approach them to. commit sodomy with them ) He said: "This is a distressful day.“   78. And his people came rushing towards him, and since aforetime they used to commit crimes (sodomy, etc.), he said: " O my people! Here are my daughters (i.e. the daughters of my nation), they are purer for you (if you marry them lawfully). So fear Allâh and degrade me not as regards my guests! Is there not among you a single right-minded man?"   79. They said : "Surely you know that we have neither any desire nor in need of your daughters , and indeed you know well what we want !"   80. He said: "Would that I had strength (men) to overpower you, or that I could betake myself to some powerful support (to resist you)."   81. They ( The Messengers ) said: "O Lout (Lot)! Verily, we are the Messengers from your Lord! They shall not reach you! So travel with your family in a part of the night, and let not any of you look back , but your wife ( will remain behind ), verily, the punishment which will afflict them, will afflict her. Indeed, morning is their appointed time. Is not the morning near?"   82. So when Our Commandment came, We turned ( the towns of Sodom in Palestine ) upside down , and rained on them stones of baked clay , piled up;
    • Islam can’t accept all prophets
    • Any prophet that comes after Mohammed must be a false prophet.
    • Muslim believe Joseph Smith was a false prophet even though :
    • He spoke with an angel, (also God the Father and Jesus.)
    • Was told that Christians had corrupted the religion of Christ.
    • Was given golden plates which, with the angels help, he translated into new Holy Book.
    • The new book uses Bible names and stories plus new names and stories of tribes in Americas.
    • Joseph Smth was the sole source of the new divine revelation. He spoke for God.
    The Angel Moroni shows Joseph Smith the Golden plates which will be translated into the Book of Mormon.
  • Shouldn’t these guys be on the same side?
    • Islam can’t accept all prophets
    • Any prophet that comes after Mohammed must be a false prophet.
    • Muslim believe Joseph Smith was a false prophet even though :
    • Mormons and Muslims both believe Jesus had a wife, even multiple wives.
    • Joseph Smith was given permission to have multiple wives.
    • Later, Mormons were permitted to plunder gentiles, (non-Mormons)
    • Later, leaders used assassins (destroying angles) to silence mockers.
    • INTOLERANCE?:
      • Muslims believe Joseph Smith was a false prophet.
      • Mormons believe Mohammed was a false prophet.
    The Angel Moroni shows Joseph Smith the Golden plates which will be translated into the Book of Mormon. Could there have been another prophet ? Could the Qur’an be corrupted or Abrogated ? How would you know ?
  • How Can You Tell a False Prophet from a Real Prophet ? Jeremiah 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not , neither have I commanded them , neither spoke unto them : they prophesy unto you a false vision . Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets , which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves . [ ravening 1 : to feed greedily 2 : to prowl for food; prey 3 : plunder ] Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce , if it were possible, even the elect. 2 nd Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies , even denying the Lord [ Jesus ] that bought them , and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 nd Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you : … covetousness 1 : marked by inordinate desire for wealth or possessions or for another's possessions 2 : having a craving for possessions. feigned 1 : fictitious 2 : not genuine or real merchandise 2: …commodities … or goods that are bought and sold for a profit .

    • Tawrat – To Prophet Moses (Musa)
    • Zabur – To Prophet David (Dawud)

    Do Muslims Accept these Books of the Bible and their Teachings?
  • Muslims do not accept the Books of the Bible, they believe a lost version of these books existed teaching Islam. Status of Books besides the Quran
  • Status of Books besides the Quran Holy Bible Psalm 12: 6-7 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them , O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever . Holy Bible Luke 21:33 [ Jesus said ,] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away . (repeated in Matthew & Mark)
  • What about the Bible? The Taurat given to Moses, as mentioned in the Quran, is NOT synonymous with the first five books of the Old Testament or the Old Testament . The Injeel given to Jesus is NOT synonymous with the New Testament or the four Gospels . The word ‘ Bible ’ and the word ‘ Gospels ’ never occur in the Quran .
    • The Injeel, Taurat, Zabur etc. given to the Prophets Jesus, Moses and David were the pure words of Allah.
    • The Bible (Old Testament and New Testaments) contains the words of historians , the words of Prophets , the words of eyewitnesses and may contain words of God.

Jews and Christians were persecuted and scattered throughout many countries taking their scriptures with them. All Previous Revelations have been Corrupted. Only my words can be trusted. I am the last prophet. Only I speak the words of God. When, Where and How could all the scriptures of the Bible been altered?
  • Qur'an 005.069 “Surely, those who believe and those who are Jews, Sabians and Christians, whosoever believed in Allah and the Last Day, and worked good, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve,” The Noble Qur’an says: “This verse should not be misinterpreted. It was abrogated by 3:85 ( “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (Surrender), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who are losers.” ) . After the coming of Prophet Muhammad no other religion except Islam will be accepted from anyone.” Abrogated - cancelled by a later revelation. Note: the later revelation is in a verse that comes numerically before this earlier verse. The surahs of Qur’an are ordered by length and usage, not by chronology. The Nobel Qur’an translation lists some of the verses considered to be abrogated.

  • What are the Jinns? The Nobel Qur’an 51: 56 And I ( Allâh ) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me ( Alone ). The Nobel Qur’an 11: 119 Except him on whom your Lord has bestowed His Mercy (the follower of truth - Islâmic Monotheism) and for that did He create them . And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled (i.e. His Saying ): " Surely, I shall fill Hell with jinns and men all together. ” The Nobel Qur’an 7 : 179 And surely, We have created many of the jinns and mankind for Hell . …
  • What are the Jinns? The Nobel Qur’an 46: 29 And (remember) when We sent towards you ( Muhammad ) Nafran ( three to ten persons ) of the jinns , (quietly) listening to the Qur'ân , when they stood in the presence thereof, they said: "Listen in silence!" And when it was finished, they returned to their people, as warners . They said: "O our people! Verily! We have heard a Book (this Qur'ân) sent down after Mûsa (Moses), confirming what came before it, it guides to the truth and to a Straight Path (i.e. Islâm ).
  • What are the Jinns? Sahih Bukhari V4: B55: N634: The Prophet said, " A strong demon from the Jinns came to me yesterday suddenly, so as to spoil my prayer , but Allah enabled me to overpower him, and so I caught him and intended to tie him to one of the pillars of the Mosque so that all of you might see him , but I remembered the invocation of my brother Solomon : 'And grant me a kingdom such as shall not belong to any other after me.' ( Surah 38: 35 ) so I let him go cursed .”
  • What are the Jinns? Sahih Bukhari V5: B:58 N:200 … When he finished, I walked with him and asked, "What about the bone and the animal dung? " He [ The Prophet ] said, " They are of the food of Jinns. The delegate of Jinns of (the city of) Nasibin came to me--and how nice those Jinns were --and asked me for the remains of the human food. I invoked Allah for them that they would never pass by a bone or animal dung but find food on them ."
  • What are the Jinns? The Nobel Qur’an 55: 56. Wherein both will be those ( maidens ) restraining their glances upon their husbands, whom no man or jinn yatmithhunna ( has opened their hymens with sexual intercourse ) before them .
  • What are the Jinns? Sahih Bukhari V9: B93: N480: The Prophet used to say, "I seek refuge (with YOU) by Your 'Izzat, None has the right to be worshipped but You Who does not die while the Jinns and the human beings die. "
  • Are Jinns the same as Devils? The Nobel Qur’an 2 : 14 And when they meet those who believe, they say: "We believe," but when they are alone with their Shayâtin ( devils - polytheists , hypocrites , etc. ), they say: "Truly, we are with you; verily, we were but mocking." The Nobel Qur’an 6: 112 And so We have appointed for every Prophet enemies - Shayâtin ( devils ) among mankind and jinns , inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion (or by way of deception). The Nobel Qur’an 17:27 Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatîn ( devils ), and the Shaitân ( the Devil , Satan ) is ever ungrateful to his Lord.
  • Are Jinns the same as Devils? The Nobel Qur’an 19:83 See you not that We have sent the Shayâtin ( devils ) against the disbelievers to push them to do evil . The Nobel Qur’an 7:27 O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitân ( Satan ) deceive you , as he got your parents [ Adam and Hawwa ( Eve )] out of Paradise, stripping them of their raiments, to show them their private parts. Verily, he and Qabîluhu ( his soldiers from the jinns or his tribe ) see you from where you cannot see them. Verily, We made the Shayâtin ( devils ) Auliyâ' ( protectors and helpers ) f or those who believe not.
  • Angels are always obedient to Allah
  • What are Angels in Islam?
  • Angels bowed down to Adam
  • Was Satan a fallen angel?
  • Why did Allah command angels to worship Adam?
    • Allah commanded the angels (and satan) to prostrate to Adam.
    • Allah wanted to honor Adam (humans) as the best of HIS creation.
    • The arabic word used is ‘Sujood’ = Prostrate
    • Allah did not used the word ‘Abudoo’ = worship
    • In many cultures, people bow down to each other for respect. Are they worshipping each other?
  • Some prominent Angels in Islam.
  • Some prominent Angels Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 23, Number 422: The Prophet said, " When a human being is laid in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their foot steps, two angels come to him and make him sit and ask him : What did you use to say about this man, Muhammad ? He will say: I testify that he is Allah's slave and His Apostle . Then it will be said to him, 'Look at your place in the Hell-Fire . Allah has given you a place in Paradise instead of it .' " … But a non-believer or a hypocrite will say to the angels, ' I do not know , but I used to say what the people used to say! It will be said to him, ' Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by reciting the Quran ).' Then he will be hit with an iron hammer between his two ears , and he will cry and that cry will be heard by whatever approaches him except human beings and jinns ."
  • The Holy Bible Some prominent Angels THE HOLY BIBLE does not go into any detail about angels or devils. It is a book from God to man. Only God gets the glory. Angels are messengers of God: OLD TESTAMENT HEBREW: מלאך To despatch as a deputy; a messenger ; specifically of God, that is, an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher): - ambassador, angel, king, messenger. NEW TESTAMEN GREEK: ἄγγελος ; aggelos, ang'-el-os ; to bring tidings ; a messenger ; especially an “angel” ; by implication a pastor: - angel, messenger. Only three angels are mentioned by name: Michael Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people :… Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel , when contending with the devil… Gabriel Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God ; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to show thee these glad tidings.… Lucifer (who is also called Satan)
  • The Holy Bible Some prominent Angels Some Angels followed Satan in Rebellion: Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed , into everlasting fire , prepared for the devil and his angels : 2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned , but cast them down to hell , and delivered them into chains of darkness , to be reserved unto judgment ; Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate , but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent , called the Devil , and Satan , which deceiveth the whole world : he was cast out into the earth , and his angels were cast out with him .
  • The Holy Bible Some prominent Angels Devils are Unclean Spirits they deceive men into worshiping them as gods, and they possess men. Colossians 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels , intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 1 Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice , they sacrifice to devils , and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Deuteronomy 32:16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods , with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils , not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee , teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils , and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them .

And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge). 17 ( Remember! ) that the two receivers ( recording angels ) receive (each human being after he or she has attained the age of puberty), one sitting on the right and one on the left ( to note his or her actions ) . 18 Not a word does he (or she) utter , but there is a watcher by him ready ( to record it ). … 20 And the Trumpet will be blown , that will be the Day whereof warning (had been given) (i.e. the Day of Resurrection ). 21 And every person will come forth along with an ( angel ) to drive (him), and an ( angel ) to bear witness . … 23 And his companion ( angel ) will say : " Here is ( this Record ) ready with me!" 24 (And it will be said): " Both of you throw (Order from Allâh to the two angels) into Hell, every stubborn disbeliever (in the Oneness of Allâh, in His Messengers, etc.). 25 "Hinderer of good, transgressor, doubter, 26 "Who set up another ilâh (god) with Allâh, then ( both of you ) cast him in the severe torment .”

They will say, '(No doubt) You are our Lord ,' and they will follow Him . Then a bridge will be laid over the ( Hell ) Fire ." Allah's Apostle added, "I will be the first to cross it . And the invocation of the Apostles on that Day, will be 'Allahukka Sallim, Sallim ( O Allah, save us, save us! ),' and over that bridge there will be hooks Similar to the thorns of As Sa'dan (a thorny tree). … "So the hooks over that bridge will be like the thorns of As-Sa-dan except that their greatness in size is only known to Allah. These hooks will snatch the people according to their deeds . Some people will be ruined because of their evil deeds, and some will be cut into pieces and fall down in Hell , but will be saved afterwards , when Allah has finished the judgments among His slaves, and intends to take out of the Fire whoever He wishes to take out from among those who used to testify that none had the right to be worshipped but Allah . We will order the angels to take them out and the angels will know them by the mark of the traces of prostration ( on their foreheads ) for Allah banned the fire to consume the traces of prostration on the body of Adam's son
  • Sahih Bukhari V8: B76: N577: … continued So they will take them out , and by then they would have burnt ( as coal ), and then water , called Maul Hayat ( water of life ) will be poured on them , and they will spring out like a seed springs out on the bank of a rainwater stream, and there will remain one man who will be facing the ( Hell ) Fire and will say, 'O Lord! It's (Hell's) vapor has Poisoned and smoked me and its flame has burnt me; please turn my face away from the Fire .‘ He will keep on invoking Allah till Allah says, 'Perhaps, if I give you what you want), you will ask for another thing?' The man will say, 'No, by Your Power, I will not ask You for anything else.' Then Allah will turn his face away from the Fire. The man will say after that, 'O Lord, bring me near the gate of Paradise.' Allah will say (to him), 'Didn't you promise not to ask for anything else? Woe to you, O son of Adam ! How treacherous you are!' The man will keep on invoking Allah till Allah will say, 'But if I give you that, you may ask me for something else.' The man will say, 'No, by Your Power. I will not ask for anything else.' He will give Allah his covenant and promise not to ask for anything else after that. So Allah will bring him near to the gate of Paradise, and when he sees what is in it, he will remain silent as long as Allah will, and then he will say, 'O Lord! Let me enter Paradise.' Allah will say, 'Didn't you promise that you would not ask Me for anything other than that? Woe to you, O son of Adam ! How treacherous you are!' On that, the man will say, 'O Lord! Do not make me the most wretched of Your creation,' and will keep on invoking Allah till Allah will smile and when Allah will smile because of him, then He will allow him to enter Paradise, and when he will enter Paradise, he will be addressed, 'Wish from so-and-so.‘ He will wish till all his wishes will be fulfilled, then Allah will say, All this (i.e. what you have wished for) and as much again therewith are for you.' " … That man will be the last of the people of Paradise to enter (Paradise).

  • Performing the Salaat (five daily prayers) There are seven conditions for a salaat to be corrected. 1-Niyyat (intention) to perform salaat : 2-Tahrima (To say the Takbir; “Allah Akbar” ) 3-Qiyam (Standing) 4-Qiraat (Recitation of Quran by mouth gently) 5-Ruku (To bow) 6-Sajda (Prostration) 7-Qa'da-i- Akhira (Last sitting) PRAYER AFTER THE SALAAT: It is stated in a hadith, 'If a person says, "Astaghfirullah Al'azim-il-llazi La ilaha illa Huw-al-hayy-ul-qayyuma Wa Atubu ilayh" , after every prayer of salaat, all his sins will be forgiven.’ The Imam and the followers raise their hands as high as their chest and pray (Dua) for themselves and for all muslims. Ahadith declares, 'Prayers (Dua) sent after the five daily fard will be accepted', But the prayers (Dua) must be done with a vigilant heart . Fingers are turned towards the qibla. Arms are not opened apart in the right-left direction. They are close each other, forward. (v) After making your Prayers (Dua), it is sunnat to rub the hands gently on the face.

  • The Holy Bible Matthew 6:5 -15 Jesus said, … And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets , that they may be seen of men . Verily I say unto you, They have their reward . 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet , and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret ; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly . 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions , as the heathen do : for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking . 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 9 After this manner therefore pray ye:
  • The Holy Bible Matthew 6:5 -15 Jesus said, … 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you : 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses .
  • The Holy Bible Matthew 7: 7 -12 Jesus said, … 7 Ask , and it shall be given you; seek , and ye shall find; knock , and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth ; and he that seeketh findeth ; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened . 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread , will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish , will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil , know how to give good gifts unto your children , how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him ? 12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you , do ye even so to them : for this is the law and the prophets.

  • Fasting – In the Bible ...

  • Fasting – In the Bible ...
    • Jonah 3:4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown .
    • So the people of Nineveh believed God , and proclaimed a fast , and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
    • For word came unto the king of Nineveh , and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him , and covered him with sackcloth , and sat in ashes .
    • And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast , herd nor flock, taste any thing : let them not feed , nor drink water :
    • But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth , and cry mightily unto God : yea, let them turn every one from his evil way , and from the violence that is in their hands .
    • Who can tell if God will turn and repent , and turn away from his fierce anger , that we perish not?

  • Fasting – In the Bible ... The Jews would fast before every feast, but did not humble their heart … Isaiah 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen ? to loose the bands of wickedness , to undo the heavy burdens , and to let the oppressed go free , and that ye break every yoke ? Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry , and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house ? when thou seest the naked , that thou cover him ; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matthew 6:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; Matthew 6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly

Allâh knows but you do not know. The Nobel Qur’an Surha 9 Verse 38 O you who believe! What is the matter with you , that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd ) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter. 6 Jehad

  • What about Christian Holy Wars like the Crusades? The Pope who was once the leader of the church of Rome, he declared himself to be the leader of all churches, he said that he judged all and was judged by none, that he spoke for God, and that to obey him was required to go to Heaven. He controlled an army, he required tribute, anyone who disagreed with his teachings was tortured and killed. Kind of like the Mohammed we’ve seen.
  • What about Christian Holy Wars like the Crusades? I believe God allowed Mohammed and Islam to spread as the mirror image of the Pope and his Church in order to oppose it, until Christians cried out to God.
  • Muslims denounce terrorists and radical Islamists as not being true Muslims since they violate the teachings of the Qur’an. We’ve looked at the Qur’an and the Bible. We’ve looked at the lives of Jesus and Mohammed. Has the Pope followed the teachings of Jesus? Is he a true Christian?
  • What about Islam today?
    • Christians consider,...
    • Muslims pray five times a day, fast, go to a mosque every Friday.
    • How often do you pray (and fast) ?
    • How often do you go to church?
    • Muslims recite their Qur’an, most have it memorized, and all believe what it says.
    • Do you read your Bible?
    • Do you even know what it says?
