But Islam Contradicts the Bible
by Saying that:
FJesus was no more than a prophet. He
was not the Son of God (S.5:78).
FJesus was a good man, but was
certainly not divine (S.5:19).
FGod is not a Trinity (Father, Son and
Holy Spirit) (S.4:171; 5:75-78, 119).
FJesus did not die on the cross for
FThere is no atonement or
reconciliation of the sinner to God by
means of the sacrifice of Jesus
or any other substitutionary
sacrifice (S. 22:36+37).
The Qur’an Contradicts the Bible
Much of the Qur’an is made up of
Bible stories. However, they are
often distorted and misunderstood.
FNoah had only one son – and he
drowned in the flood (S.11:42-43).
(Cf. Gen. 6 & 7).
The father of Abraham in the Qur’an, was Azar (S.6:74). (Cf.
Moses in the Qur’an, adopted by Pharaoh’s wife (S.28:89).

Practice of Islam
Muslims must believe in:
1. One God, Allah.
3. All revealed Books. These are named to be:
— The Taurat (the 5 books of Moses or perhaps the
whole of the Old Testament.)
— The Zabur (the Psalms of David).
— The Injil (the Gospel or the New Testament).
— The Qur’an.
4. The Prophets sent by God. Muslims believe that
124 000 have been sent to all nations, but only a
few are mentioned by name. Among these are:
Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph,
Moses, David, Jesus and Muhammad.
5. Life After Death which includes a fatalistic
Predestination and the coming Last Day of
Judgement which will determine whether a
Muslim reaches paradise or hell.
The Six Pillars of Islam
1.The open confession of faith (“Shahãda”).
2. The five daily prayers (“Salat” [pronounce “Salãh”]).
3. The keeping of the fast during the full month of
Ramadan (“Sawn”). But Muslims are allowed to eat and drink
from sunset to sunrise.
4. The giving of alms (“Zakãt’” [pronounced: “Zakah”]).
5. The Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a
lifetime, provided one has the means for that (“Hajj”).
