The difference between Christianity and Islam

Glen put this comment on the Salient website, which does an excellent job of describing the big difference between Christianity and Islam.

“Perigo has railed vociferously against all religions, including Christianity, since Adam was a boy. Nevertheless, it appears a distinction needs to be made regarding the two religions: Christians separated church and state in their native countries and gave women the vote long ago; Muslims have not. Christians stopped executing adulterers, homosexuals and heretics long ago; Muslims still do – regularly. Jesus did not advocate or practice paedophilia; Mohammed did – and by the Qur’an’s account thoroughly enjoyed it. The Bible does not demand war with the infidel until the all world is subjugated; The Qur’an does. Christian peace means peace; Islamic peace means when all the world is Islamic. Christian fundamentalists are a threat to abortionists and not much else; Muslim fundamentalists are a threat to the whole of western civilization. Moderate Christians rally against atrocities performed in the name of their religion; Moderate Muslims do not.

I could go on…

Here’s something you don’t hear moderate Muslims talking about: the Qur’an is essentially made up of two halves – the Meccan and Medinan, which have been knitted together in a non-chronological order. Mohammed wrote the first ‘peace and loving’ half in Mecca when he was trying to get support for his fledgling movement. The second ‘blood and guts’ half calling for the subjugation, proselytisation and/or execution of non-believers was recorded in Medina, when he had assassinated all the dissenters and formed his brutal totalitarian state. Now, the important bit to note is this: the latter half of the Qur’an dictates that all laws written prior to the Medinan scriptures were made null and void in what is known as the Doctrine of Abrogation. This means, quite simply, that Islam is NOT a religion of peace, and that all those who are so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims are in fact wishy-washy practitioners who digest their holy book al a Carte. It is the Jihadists who are the true Muslims and faithful followers of Islam – as proscribed by the war mongering, Jew-hating, prepubescent-girl-humping Prophet himself.

Finally, Islamofascism is not an oxymoron – unless you are completely ignorant of the brutal totalitarianism gripping Islamic states all over the world.”

Excellent comment. If you want something to compare islamofascism it is not Christain fundamentalism you should look at but nazism. The evil of Islamic Fundamentalism is almost beyond comprehension.

    The Quran(Koran) Concerning other monotheist faiths:

    Not all of them are alike; a party of the people of the Scripture stand for the right, they recite the Verses of God during the hours of the night, prostrating themselves in prayer. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin good and forbid wrong; and they hasten in good works; and they are among the righteous. And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for God knows well those who are God fearing. 3:113-115

    And there are, certainly, among the people of the Scripture, those who believe in God and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before God. They do not sell the Verses of God for a little price, for them is a reward with their Lord. Surely, God is Swift in account. 3:199

    Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve . 2:62

    Say: “O people of the Scripture : Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but God, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides God. 3:64

    And they say: “None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.” Those are their (vain) desires. Say: “Produce your proof if ye are truthful.”Nay,-whoever submits His whole self to God and is a doer of good,- He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. The Jews say: “The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say: “The Jews have naught (To stand) upon.” Yet they study the (same) Book. Like unto their word is what those say who know not; but God will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgment. 2.111-113

    If any do deeds of righteousness,- be they male or female – and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them 4.124

    The Quran(Koran) Concerning who we fight or don’t:

    As for such who do not fight you on account of faith, or drive you forth from your homelands, God does not forbid you to show them kindness and to deal with them with equity, for God loves those who act equitably. God only forbids you to turn in friendship towards such as fight against you because of faith and drive you forth from your homelands or aid in driving you forth. As for those from among you who turn towards them for alliance, it is they who are wrongdoers. 60:8-9

    Permission (to fight) is given to those against whom war is being wrongfully waged, and verily, God has indeed the power to aid them. Those who have been driven from their homelands in defiance of right for no other reason than their saying, ‘Our Lord is God.’ 22:39-40

    The Quran(Koran) Concerning freedom:

    2:256 There is no compulsion in religion, for the right way is clearly from the wrong way. Whoever therefore rejects the forces of evil and believes in God, he has taken hold of a support most unfailing, which shall never give way, for God is All Hearing and Knowing.

    16:82 But if they turn away from you, your only duty is a clear delivery of the Message .

    6:107 Yet if God had so willed, they would not have ascribed Divinity to aught besides Him; hence, We have not made you their keeper, nor are you a guardian over them.

    4:79-80 Say:’Whatever good betides you is from God and whatever evil betides you is from your own self and that We have sent you to mankind only as a messenger and all sufficing is God as witness. Whoso obeys the Messenger, he indeed obeys God. And for those who turn away, We have not sent you as a keeper.”

    11:28 He (Noah) said “O my people! think over it! If I act upon a clear direction from my Lord who has bestowed on me from Himself the Merciful talent of seeing the right way, a way which you cannot see for yourself, does it follow that we can force you to take the right path when you definitely decline to take it?°

    17:53-54 And tell my servants that they should speak in a most kindly manner. Verily, Satan is always ready to stir up discord between men; for verily; Satan is mans foe …. Hence, We have not sent you with power to determine their Faith.

    21:107-109 (O Prophet?) ‘We have not sent you except to be a mercy to all mankind:” Declare, “Verily, what is revealed to me is this, your God is the only One God, so is it not up to you to bow down to Him?’ But if they turn away then say, “I have delivered the Truth in a manner clear to one and all, and I know not whether the promised hour is near or far.”

    22:67 To every people have We appointed ceremonial rites which they observe; therefore, let them not wrangle over this matter with you, but bid them to turn to your Lord. You indeed are rightly guided. But if they still dispute you in this matter, `God best knows what you do.”

    24.54. Say: “Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger. but if ye turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and ye for that placed on you. If ye obey him, ye shall be on right guidance. The Messenger’s duty is only to preach the clear (Message).

    88:21 22; And so, exhort them your task is only to exhort; you cannot compel them to believe.

    48:28 He it is Who has sent forth His Messenger with the Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to the end that tie make it prevail over every religion, and none can bear witness to the Truth as God does.

    36:16 17 (Three Messengers to their people) Said, “Our Sustainer knows that we have indeed been sent unto you, but we are not bound to more than clearly deliver the Message entrusted to us.’

    39:41 Assuredly, We have sent down the Book to you in right form for the good of man. Whoso guided himself by it does so to his own advantage, and whoso turns away from it does so at his own loss. You certainly are not their keeper.

    42:6 48 And whoso takes for patrons others besides God, over them does God keep a watch. Mark, you are not a keeper over them. But if they turn aside from you (do not get disheartened), for We have not sent you to be a keeper over them; your task is but to preach ….

    64:12 Obey God then and obey the Messenger, but if you turn away (no blame shall attach to our Messenger), for the duty of Our Messenger is just to deliver the message.

    67:25 26 And they ask, “When shall the promise be fulfilled if you speak the Truth?” Say, “The knowledge of it is verily with God alone, and verily I am but a plain warner.”

    The Quran(Koran) concerning justice:

    “And among His signs are the creation of the heaven and earth, and the variation in your language and your colors; verily in that are signs for those who know” (30:22).

    “Satan seeks only to cast among you enmity and hate”(5:91).

    O you who believe! Stand out for justice, as witnesses to God, and even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be rich or poor. An-Nisaa’ 4:134

    “O you who believe! Be the maintainers of justice and bearers of witness for God’s sake though it be against your own self, parents and relatives” (4:135).

    “O you mankind! We have created you from a single pair of male and female and made you into nations and tribes so that you know each other. Verily the most honored in the sight of God is the one who is most righteous” (49:13).

    O you who believe! Stand out firmly for God, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety and fear God, for God is well acquainted with all that you do. 5:8

    And thus We made of you a justly balanced community that you might bear witness to humankind and the Apostle might bear witness over you. 2:143

    O you who believe, observe your duty to God with right observance, and die not except in a state of submission (to Him). And hold fast, all of you together, to the rope of God, and do not separate, and remember God’s favor unto you: how you were enemies and He put love between your hearts so that you became as brothers by His grace: and how you were upon the brink of a fire and He saved you from it. Thus God makes clear His revelations unto you so that you may be guided” (3:102-103).

    “The believers are nothing else other than brothers, Thus make peace between your brethren and observe your duty to God that you may haply receive His mercy” (49: 1 0).

    The Quran(Koran) Concerning propagation:

    Invite (all humankind) to the path of your Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation and argue with them in the most kindly manner, for, indeed, your Lord knows best as to who strays from His path, and best who are the right-guided. (16:125)

    Had your Lord so willed, all those who live on earth would surely have attained faith, will you then compel people, against their will, to believe? 10:99

    And We have not sent you, but as mercy to all the worlds. 21:107

    The Quran(Koran) Concerning Jesus the messiah:

    When the angel said, “Mary, God gives you a good tidings of a Word from Him whose name is messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, -high honoured shall he be in this world and the next, near stationed to God. He shall speak to men in the cradle, and of age, and righteous he shall be, “lord” said Mary “How shall I have a son, seeing no mortal has touched me? “Even so, he said “God creates what He will”. When he decrees a thing He but say to it, “Be”, and it is. (Al-Imran 3:45-47)

    “Then she brought the child to her folk, carrying him, and they said, “Mary, you have surely committed a monstrous thing. Sister of Aaron, your father was not a wicked man, nor your mother a woman unchaste. Mary pointed to the child; but they said, ‘Hoe shall we speak to one who still in the cradle, a little child. And he said, ‘Lo, I am God’s servant, God has given me the Book and made me a Prophet Blessed He has made me ,wherever/may be; and He has enjoined me to prayer, and to give the alms so long as I live, and likewise to cherish my mother; He has not made me arrogant and wicked. Peace be upon me, the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I am raised up alive. “Maryam 19:29-33)

    “And they say, The All-Merciful has taken unto Himself a son. You have indeed advanced something hideous. As if the skies are about to burst, the earth to split asunder and its mountain to fall down in the utter ruin for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son; and behaves not the All-merciful to take a son. None there in the heavens and earth but comes to the All-Merciful as a servant” (Maryam 19:88-93)

    Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God’s sight is as Adam’s likeness; He created him of dust, then He said upon him, ‘Be’ and he was. (Al-Imran 3:59)

    People of the Book, do not go beyond the bounds in your religion, and say nought as to God but the Truth. The messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only the messenger of God, and his word that he committed to Mary, and a spirit originating from Him. So believe in God and His Messengers, and say not ‘Three’. Refrain, better is for you. God is only one God. Glory be to him-that He should have a son! To Him belongs all that is in the Heavens and in the Earth; God suffices for a guardian. (4.171)

    110. Then will God say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel and behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave, and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them said: ‘This is nothing but evident magic.’

    Islam is peace, Jesus is peace.

    Islamic Forum Islamic Forum is to know about islam and friendly Islamic international community for all Islamic discussions. Islam is the moderate religion and way of life meant for everyone

    ??? Why Islam and not the others

    ——————————————————————————–

    God says in the Holy Quran what means “Allah is-the Protecting Friend of those who believe. He bringeth them out of darkness into light. As for those who disbelieve, their patrons are false deities. They bring them out of light into darkness. Such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein. ( Al-Baqra :257)

    Once I was asked Why Islam should always be the only right doctrine and not the other ones?

    My answer man has no other choice wherher to believe or not because choosing to believe is one of the most important thing in human life ,so the question should be like this :

    Which is right ? to choose Christianity or to choose Islam ?

    To answer the questions we should think a little about which one is good , which one is reliable.

    The Holy Book , though revealed by God , but owing to human tampering has many holes .

    The Holy Book had been written in a period over one thousand years and by tens of authors who are not of the same efficiency (Encyclopedia Britannica , Bible ) , moreover there are many differences between the texts of the different denominations and cults . The Catholic version of the Bible are five chapters more than the version of the protestants .

    Which is correct ?Is it the catholic version or the protestant version or the syriac version ?

    Even the successively printed versions of the same cult undergoes the same differences , complete chapters can be inserted in one version and then deleted in the second version and vice verse . Moreover , what about the newly discovered codices such as the dead sea Scroll and Nag Hamadi library that are different from all of these present versions? A new science called the science of Holy Textx Criticism was invented in an attempt of finding a text that is relatively like a certain lost text .

    (A) The Holy Book:

    Also , the Holy Book is not the same as that was available a few years ago . Many synods have been held since the 4thcentury(A.D) to decide which bibles are sacred and worth being worshipped by and which are not ..Among these synods is the synod of carthage (398 A.D) in which most of the books in use now were agreed upon , many of the books that had remained for a long times in use were abrogated by these synods , also there a lot of controversial books, such as The Epistle of Shepherd Hermes and The Epistle of Barnaby, which were considered sacred for a certain times and unsacred for other some times . ( The previous source) . “In ancient times , some of these alternative versions may have circulated more widely than the familiar four gospels.” (National Geographic – may 2006)

    Many bibles that were unknown before are found from time to time and we still , up till now , find more . The same periodical we already referred to says ” “we cannot know how many books were lost as the bible took shape , but we do know that some were hidden away . ( The previous source )

    (B) The Apocrypha :

    As to the question of the Apocrypha with Christianity scientists , the Holy Quran has referred to this question and even condemned it . God says in the Holy Quran what means ” .O people of the ******ure! Now hath Our messenger come unto you, expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the ******ure, and forgiving much. Now hath come unto you light from Allah and a plain ******ure .” Al-ma’da :15)

    So he told Mohummed about that ?!!!!

    Before I finish my comment on the Holy Book , I ‘d like to say that the authenticity and the credence of the Holy Book is so shaky and weak .In 2005 , the Catholic Church issued a report in which they say that the words in the Holy Books are not reliable when thinking about the truth .

    These words are nearly the same words of Pope Benedict in his book “The Nazarene Jesus ” in which he asked his followers not to deal with the Holy Book as a revealed book from God but rather a derived book from God . These words were mentioned in the Newsweek , number (562007) ,where also Thomas Jefferson says that Jesus true words can be seen as pearls in a pile of rubbish!!!

    (C) Evidence to the invalidity of the doctrine of the Christians :

    The multiple doctrines of the Christians :

    Which doctrine is right ? Is it the present doctrine of Trinity ? The present doctrine was not there before the synod of Niece (325 ) in which Constantine practiced clampdown over the participants to impose the doctrine of Trinity though the overwhelming opinion in that synod was against it , crackdown was imposed to ban the books and the meetings of the theists .(national geographic .may 2006)( The previous Reference under a marginal title “the Forgotten Christianities) , Pat Erman is of the same opinion in his book ” Lost Christianities ” in which he says the church in the first century(A.D) was a chaos of beliefs ; some worshipped one God , some worshipped two gods and even some worshipped twelve gods .( The previous source)

    The Savior is not just one

    The Christians believe in the concept of Jesus the Savior ( the doctrine of the god , the son of the virgin ,who sacrificed himself for the remittance of the sins of people and his rise from his grave ) . This doctrine is also found in another sixteen doctrines other than the christianity ; the concept of savor is also there with the adherents of Krishna , Buda and Horus . Why then is Jesus only the Savior ?!!! Tom Herbert , an American theologian , make the same query in his book ” The Pagan Christ”.

    The question is why did he Christian invent this illogic doctrine ? The answer is that they did not invent it but rather they were just rubber-mats. The Holy Quran revealed this fact in the following verse ” They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. ” ( AL-Tawba :30)

    But why do the Christians toil themselves to understand this illogic doctrine ?!!!

    Saint Augustine says ” I believe in Christianity because it is an illogic religion !!!

    Kirk Guard , the founder of the new Christianity in the beginning of the 20th century comments on the belief in Christianity saying it is nothing but absurd belief ” ( The History of the Church , volume 5 , the priest John Lormier )

    Also , Deidre , notable scholar in the Renaissance age , says the worst and the most absurd about Christianity lie in its doctrines ” ( The previous source )

    Jesus seminar cult are skeptic about their books and deny the sacredness of their books .

    Birmingham university issue a book called ” the myth of god incarnate ”

    Francis young says the new Greek Christians stand accused of changing the Jewish Jesus from Palestine into an incarnated entity .

    The Holy Quran debunked the hoax of the deity of Jesus , the Holy Quran says ” They surely disbelieve who say : Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. The Messiah (himself) said : O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.” The same thing is stressed in John( 12:17) where Jesus says ” I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”

    (D) The Crucifixion

    Did the Christians know that the doctrine of the Cross had not been known at all in the early centuries of Christianity ? Did they know that many ancient cults such as Carpocrates, Marsyonien and many others believed that Jesus had not been crucified and it was Simon a Cyrenian, the person who was crucified instead and Jesus stood laughing at the stupidity of the Jews ? Also among the many books that were against the doctrine of crucifixion is the book of Sheeth and the Bible of Judah ,which state that it was Judah ,who was crucified instead of Jesus of his own accord .

    Some people might think that the already controversial question may bring to him salvation while many of the Quranic verses are resonate with fear , to those people we say why don’t you read these two following verses from the Holy Quran ?!!

    God says in the Holy Quran what means “Say: My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgiveth all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. ( Al-Zmr :53)

    God says in the Holy Quran what means ” Those who avoid enormities of sin and abominations, save the unwilled offences (for them) lo! thy Lord is of vast mercy. He is best aware of you (from the time) when He created you from the earth, and when ye were hidden in the bellies of your mothers. Therefor ascribe not purity unto yourselves. He is best aware of him who wardeth off (evil). ( AL-Nagm :23)

    Moreover , there is not any verse in the Bibles that talks about the deity of Jesus , nor the sonship or even the trinity but this divine sonship was just what Paul ,the Founder of Christianity , concluded from the rise of Jesus from among the dead.(Romans) , this doctrine was imposed after Paul in the synods .

    So I don’t accept the present Christianity because it is not logical and it is not revealed from God but rather a human made doctrine or a derived doctrine.

    Why should I choose Islam ?

    (1) The logic in its doctrine

    In Islam , God is One , no one is equal to Him , His fine name is supreme and no one like Him , he doesn’t beget , nor He is begotten , No one is equal to Him .All the religions claim that they are monotheistic religion but the truth they are not owing to the human tampering in them . Islam is the only pure religion of the pure monotheism .

    (2) The authenticity of the Holy Quran

    It is the only Holy Book that remained for fourteen centuries without the least change , every letter , ever verse is as it was revealed first time . No one but prophet Mohummed dared to arrange its Suras .

    It is a book that is so clear , a book that doesn’t need what could be like the synods to decide which is sacred and genuine and which is not , neither do we need the science of scrutinizing holy texts .

    (3) The Quran is the book of logic and wisdom.

    Unlike the other Holy books , the Holy Quran remained untouched by any human , so pure and genuine is the Holy Quran . A book which is resonate with wisdom , A book that you feel ecstasy when you read it.

    It is the only Holy Book that deems Allah high while the other books do not ….. they say that God relax , wrestles the others and God sleeps (Deuteronomy:22:32& 2:2 ) .

    The Holy Quran deems the prophets of God so high ,while the other holy books talk about heinous crimes committed by the prophet .

    In Quran ,Lute is a generous prophet, who never disobeyed God while the other Holy books say that he made adultery with his two daughters .

    In Quran ,Arone is a prophet, who never disobeyed God while the Torah says that he is a prophet who made for the Jews an idol made of gold and ordered them to worship it.

    That is what the Holy Quran says about God and His prophets”Glorified be thy Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they attribute (unto Him) ,And peace be unto those sent (to warn).And praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds! ( Al-Safat : 180-182) .

    The revelation of the Holy Quran was really the birth of many facts that correct what the other made and inserted in their Holy Books.

    Quran is the birth of the verdict of the innocence of all the prophets and angels whom the ******ure weaved malign against them . It is the Holy Book which not only mentions the errors in the scripures but even corrects them and that is one the maning of quranic watching over other holy books .

    (4) The tolerance of the holy Quran

    Unlike the other holy books , the Holy Quran is completely devoid of the war strategy found in the Holy ******ures; the holy ******ure strategy of war is best explained in the chapter of Joshua (6:21) and the (Numbers:31:13-18) , where we read about the strategy of war which is summarized in eliminating men ,women , children and even animals , the strategy of war in Quran is best explained in the following verse :

    God says in the Holy Quran what means ” Those who, if We give them power in the land, establish worship and pay the poor due and enjoin kindness and forbid iniquity. And Allah’s is the sequel of events.” ( Al-Hajj:41)

    (5) The scientific miracles in the Holy Quran

    The Holy Quran , in order to prove its divine source and the impossibility of the human tampering , contains a large number of verses that refers to scientific facts in all the different branches of science , we can read about the different mountains ,clouds , the embryology and the successive stages of the embryo , the creation of the universe , the dark sea and many other verses that are compatible with modern science . Prophet Mohummed was unlettered ,who lived in the desert and there were any channels of communicating with any knowledge in his age, which was in most of its scientifically wrong .

    Compare this with what the Genesis says about the creation of the universe , many mendacious facts that runs counter with scientific modern findings are there in the Holy ******ures . Human Tampering are responsible for these mistakes.

    (6) The miracle of the prophecies about the future.

    Many prophecies concerning the future are mentioned in the Holy Quran , these prophecies came true in their fixed time ; the triumph of the Roman Empire over the Persian is an example , if just a simple mistake took place in these prophecies , the religion of Islam would have been left shaky .

    Moreover , the Holy Quran mentions some details that were mentioned in the codices that have been found already , It is impossible that Mohummed copied from these books because of :

    The number of these books was too many and the number of the one version was few .

    These were written in different ********s.

    These belonged to different cults.

    These were found in different places .

    These were not found in one time ..

    These books were considered Apocrypha.

    Many of these books contained errors and the Quran verses were in conformity with those who are correct .

    Prophet Mohammed was illiterate who could neither read nor write .

    God says in the Holy Quran in this concern what means ” Will they not then ponder on the Qur’an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity.”( Al-Nasa:82)

    7- The Glad tidings about the Quran and the prophet in the Holy ******ures:

    There are many glad-tidings about :

    The name of the prophet .

    The place of the birth of Islam.

    The moral features of the prophet of Islam .

    The seal of the brotherhood .

    The term “Islam”.

    (8) The rhetoric miracle

    God challenged the early Arab pagans to give one verse like the verses of the Holy Quran and though they were masters in the rhetoric of Arabic they failed , even their great poets could not , they testified to the mirculousness of the rhetoric style in the Holy Quran , The Holy Quran though includes all the Arabic figure of speech , it contains something which can not be categorized as figure of speech , something can not be described , this creates an atmosphere of sweetness and ecstasy in the same time , no tautology , no repetition , the choice of the word is significant though many *****alents may suit but the Quranic word has special significance , the wording of the sentences is special and full of meanings….many can be said and yet not fulfilling the greatness of this miracle .

    Also , the sura in Quran was not arranged according to the time of revelation like Torah , though this was not scientifically accurate .

    The Holy Quran was arranged according to subjects to the extent that you find a good harmony between the beginning of the Sura and the end of the same Sura .

    The linguistic loftiness of the Quranic ******** , the Holy Quran uses one third of the Arabic words (371 word roots) , every root occurs one time .

    The spread of Islam

    Islam is now is the fastest growing religion in the world and that what the minister of foreign affairs has stated in July 2007 , a report that made the president of US hold a meeting with mass media men who adopt antagonistic view against Islam to thwart Islam , what is really astonishing is that the more they attack Islam, the more people convert into it .

    In 2006, the American foreign policy Magazine reports that Moslem will form (30%) of the French during the coming 20 years , as to England , the total number of the English pilgrims amounted to 30.000 in the last pilgrimage , most of these pilgrims were Young men .

    The number of the English Moslems who are keen on performing their Islamic religion duties will increase by (10%) , if compared with their Christian counterpart in the church .

    In Russia , the Moslems form about (15%) of the Russians and one fifth of the capital are Moslem , the Economist says that the number of Moslem will reach (50%) of Russia in the next 25 years .

    In Holland the majority of the people will be Moslems (German magazine , Number 28-5-2005)

    In Mexico , the number of Moslems is increasing fast between the Red Indians .

    The Christian thinker , Kmal Fareid says Christianity will die out during the coming one hundred years because of t convert into Islam .

    After the eleventh of September events , the number of the new Moslem have increased and after the Danish affront to the prophet of Islam , the number of the Holy Quran copies sales was increased by (38%) in France . All the attempts , be a apostasy or affront or the suicide of a priest ( a priest committed suicide protesting against the wide spread of Islam and the silence of the church towards that ) won’t avail .

    God says in the Holy Quran what means ” And whomsoever it is Allah’s will to guide, He expandeth his bosom unto the Surrender, and whomsoever it is His will to send astray, He maketh his bosom close and narrow as if he were engaged in sheer ascent. Thus Allah layeth ignominy upon those who believe not.” AL-Anam :135

    Pease be upon those who follow true guidance. I am pleased to inform you that your perception of Islam quite distorted. In fact, to Muslims, it is absurd. I think, insha’Allah, the brothers here have given enough information but I wanted to add just a couple things, insha’Allah (God willing)

    Firstly, you claim Christians stopped killing homosexuals, adulterers, etc. long ago. For the most part, this is true. Now they just kill innocent people with bombs and heavy artillery. God made laws. Who are we to ignore them? Why should we ignore them? Do you not see what neglecting God’s laws have done? Fornication is legal and as a result, disease and abortion (murder) is widespread. Diseases pouring from homosexuality is no suprize, nor is the satanic lifestyle they live. God has destroyed nations for these acts of disgusting immorality. He has ordered us to punish people for their crimes, not like the west and their sympathy for the criminal. So you are proud that Christians do not follow the laws of God? Jesus (PBUH) tells you, in YOUR book to follow the law to the LETTER. You are proud to not do so? The Bible is so full of contradictions, I know it makes it difficult to know exactly what you should do. Should you enforce the law as Jesus (PBUH) says or “turn the other cheek?” as Jesus (PBUH) said. I guess when one believes that he is punished for something someone else did (original sin of Adam & Eve) and then saved by something someone did (salvation through cruciFICTION) laws don’t seem to matter much as religion becomes an emotional matrix of nonsense, derived from pagan beliefs of dozens of “sons of God” who were sent to die for the sins of the world. Once we learn how to accept, implement and live by the law, as well as enforce it, we become servants of our Creator, not servants to a pagan belief (see adonyus, mithra, bachus, horus, etc, etc.) that easily crept it’s way into the teachings of Jesus (PBUH) who said without ambiguity that we must worship the ONE God and follow His laws. Somehow Christians took this as worship Jesus (PBUH) and follow Paul who said “The law is corrupt” So trust me, I can understand Christian confusion in what to do or not do for GHod Almighty.

    Secondly,

    _______________________________________________________________

    Emphasis on “sexual object” not wife!! Pedophilia has NOTHING to do with marriage. It is a purely sexual affliction. I think we can both agree that Pedophilia is a “sexual perversion in which CHILDREN are the preferred sexual object” right? Who has the right to establish marriage laws(most non-Islamic countries establish laws of fornication, being that you don’t have to be married. It is a sexual law)
    The answer is not the U.S. or Britain, Sweden or Italy. If you believe the state or country has this right, then WHICH ONE IS CORRECT because sex is permitted at age 12 in many places while it is not allowed until 20 in others. http://sidesplitters.catastrophe.net/arch/2002/www.ageofconsent.com/ageofconsent.htm
    WHO IS RIGHT and why? Answer, NONE of them are right because illicit sex is a major sin. We MUST implement God’s law. You MUST be married to an adult woman by her own free will and with the permission of her gaurdian. What is an adult woman? Is it 16, 18? Maybe, if that is when God ordains that they can bear children. Allah says in the Qur’an women can be married when they attain puberty and start their menses. Makes sense to me! The Prophet’s (SAWS) WIFE, A’isha (RA) was of legal age to marry at 9 as were many females in that time were. She was also married by her own free will and by her gaurdian (father) Abu Bakr (RA). This “child” you talk about, A’isha (RA) never married another after the prphet’s (SAS) death and wrote in GREAT detail about her LOVE for him and his kindness and compassion for her. She went on to narrate MANY, MANY Islamic teachings and laws and was the leading female scholar of Islam. I hope some of this makes sense to you and makes you regret your malicious statements about the best man that EVER walked the face of God’s Earth.

    Thirdly, TRUE believers would GLADLY sacrifice their life in battle for the sake of their Creator. The hypocrites are the ones who say they love God, yet when the time to fight in His way comes, they stay where they are, attached to their material life that will decay, rot and vanish after they are in the grave. I prefer to strive for eternity.

    I could go on and on but really, do I have to? How hard is it to see that Islam (submission to God) is salvation, not some pagan belief?
    The Bible – pagan tradition = Al Qur’an

    Peace be upon all who seek Allah’s mercy and submit to Him and Him alone.

    I had to come back and add a couple more points.

    You said
    “the Meccan and Medinan, which have been knitted together in a non-chronological order. Mohammed wrote the first ‘peace and loving’ half in Mecca when he was trying to get support for his fledgling movement. The second ‘blood and guts’ half calling for the subjugation, proselytisation and/or execution of non-believers was recorded in Medina, when he had assassinated all the dissenters and formed his brutal totalitarian state.”
    This is riddled with error and misunderstanding. In the Meccan period, the Muslims were not allowed to fight because the revelation of self defense had not yet come. They suffered extreme torture, murder, boycotts, were forced to into exile for three years and disallowed any food, water, etc. as Meccan pagans monitored the routes in and out of the Meccan outskirts where the Muslims had been exiled, not allowing them to go anywhere else or let any provisions in. They tried peace for 13 years until, in Medinah, Allah revealed the verses

    “Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loves not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. But if they cease, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevails justice and faith in God; but if they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression” (2:190-193).

    Think about for a second. Is this aggression? Is this unjust? These Meccans have been killing and torturing the Muslims for 13 years!! When they migrated to Madinah more came to Islam and being out of the terrible conditions they were dealt in Meccah, laws were established, as well as rights, salat (5 daily prayers) and yes, jihad. The Meccan verses focus primarily on tauheed (the unique Oneness of God) because this is the first pillar of Islam and without tauheed, one cannot be a Muslim, period! Once tauheed and iman (faith) were established, laws, rights and jihad came. Jihad itself contains MANY laws (see my Muslim brothers’ posts above)

    When you say things like ‘blood and guts’ it is VERY misleading. Islam did away with gore on the battlefield. It was pagan tradition to mutilate their enemies after killing them. This tradition was abolished by Allah Most High. Some laws include, but are not limited to:
    *fighting ONLY those who fight against you
    *If those who fight you drop their weapons against you, you MUST give them protection and safety
    *No killing or injuring ANY elderly, children, women non-combatants (In the bible, you will find that people are ordered to kill all living things, including women, suckling infants, animals and are instructed to spare all virgin little girls for themselves, in one place even instructed to set so many aside for God ?!?! )
    *no destruction of homes, property, land, etc. as this was pagan tradition to destroy all their enemies had
    *no mutilation of the Muslim’s enemies
    *any taken as prisoners of war are to be fed, clothed, treated with kindness. Muslims would let their POW’s sit and eat with them and would teach them Islam. Many converted seeing the mercy of Islam.
    *POW’s would be set free without punishment if they tought ten Muslims to read and write

    I could go on and on but, insha’Allah, I have made my point in this issue.
    Just IMAGINE if everyone lived by these rules today! Could you imagine? As the west drops bunker buster bombs on innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, using depleted uranium bombs that will cause death and birth defects to millions. Israelis destroys Palestinian’s homes, kill their family’s and make them watch as their loved one’s lives are taken by these evil people. The west and Israel have commited atrocities that make Sadaam Hussein look like saint, yet they use 9/11 to manipulate their people into supporting a fake war on terror to further their geo-political agenda of global imperialism (see http://www.informationclearinghouse.info and follow these links located toward the top right of the main page Bush Planned Iraq ‘Regime Change’ Before Becoming President

    You said
    “The second ‘blood and guts’ half calling for the subjugation, proselytisation and/or execution of non-believers was recorded in Medina, when he had assassinated all the dissenters and formed his brutal totalitarian state.”

    Islam does not even permit, much less call for the “subjugation, proselytisation and/or execution of non-believers”
    I don’t know where you get this info but it is absolutely incorrect.

    As far as “assassinating all the dissenters”, what are you implying? If you mean the 3 Jewish tribes of Madinah who consistantly broke their agreements and treaties with the Muslims, either trying to kill Muhammad (SAS) or planning with the Meccans to afford them a “back way” into Madinah to extinguish every last Muslim, then YES they were treated as treasonous to the state and some were executed, but by the judgment of a judge they chose!! all the others were expelled from the city, even after attempted murder of the prophet (SAS) If you mean those who did EVERYTHING they could to stir up enmity toward the Muslims by encouraging others to draw their forces to kill the Muslim community, then YES, execution was their fate, as it should have been.

    I strongly encourage you to study these things as I can see that your statements come from lack of objective education.

    The “totalitarian state” was a result of the non Muslims failure to keep their agreements. The Madinan people accepted Muhammad (SAS) as their governor, agreed to his treaties and his Constitution, etc. and continually broke EVERY single treaty, agreement and Constitutional declaration. If they lived there according the law they asked for (they invited him) they could’ve co-existed peacefully but they all chose to be backstabbers to their state. This is called TREASON!

    Last point, insha’Allah

    There indeed is a growing fascism but it is not withing the Muslim community. It is the land of the “free”, home of the slave, amerikkka and their western allies. It is all too clear to those who study these things that the evil powers of the west and those of Israel have allied in the destruction, humiliation and suffering of those who do not let them TAKE what they want!

    F.Y.I – I was born and raised in America and converted to Islam at 28 years old after an 8 month in depth comparative study on Christianity and Islam. I was, up until that time, a Christian. I had never known a single Muslim. I studied with an open mind and objectively sought the truth. I put aside my media driven perception and explored Islam based on Islam, not what some Muslims say or do. I was and am convinced that I found it. Praise Allah!

    May the peace and blessings of Allah be on those who follow true guidance from now until the Last Day. Ameen
