What I am sharing is from a Islamic page. I will give my responses after each point. It is a very long tedious article but I am only posting the points I want to respond to. If I didn’t do that it would take forever to read. You can find the article named above… Please understand I don’t hate anyone, My concern is about the truth. The title and the words give a wonderful version of the religion but, Islam’s history is there to see. What is written sounds good on the surface, but the truth cuts deep.

* Our Love for Jesus Guided us to Islam Compiled and prepared by: Jotiar Bamarni

May Allah show mercy to those who printed, photocopied, translated, or made this book available on different social media platforms, without any addition or omission! May Allah reward them abundantly and make them and us steadfast upon Islam!

And you will surely find that the closest of them in affection to the believers are those who say: “We are Christians.” That is because among them are priests and monks, and they are not arrogant.

When they hear what has been sent down to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of recognizing the truth. * Saying is a response referring to the Muslim Jesus.

These real stories were lived by their writers over a number of years, along with their love for the Messiah, for Christianity and the Gospel. This love pushed them, by natural disposition, to search for the truth about Prophet Jesus and his true status in the sight of Allah Almighty and to seek the Creator of the worlds and the Disposer of their affairs. * Jesus gave some prophecies but He is above all.

Jesus the Creator

They wanted to know Islam’s stance on Jesus and his mother, the pious virgin woman, and to revisit the Gospels with sincere intent to discover whether these words are truly the speech of Allah and His infallible prophets; or, whether they contain many distortions and alterations, leaving nothing remaining for them to follow.

Their curiosity and impartiality led them to find out the false claims about the position of Islam and Muslims regarding the Messiah and the rest of the messengers. They found the opposite of these claims, which led them to know the truth of Islam, the only true religion remaining on Earth.

They searched and held a comparison between their beliefs and Islam, studying and reviewing many books on comparative religion. They discovered that the religion that corresponds with the image that they themselves have of the true God, the true religion, and the right way of life that leads to success in this world and the Hereafter is Islam – so they testified that none is worthy of being worshiped except Allah alone and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and that Jesus is the messenger of Allah.

Islam: Jesus Was a Created Being

While Jesus, in Islam, was born of a virgin, they also insist that He is a created being, not God the Son. Bible: John 14:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

I was amazed at the Qur’an’s description of Mary’s purity and the testimony of Jesus about the chastity of his mother, while he was still a baby in the cradle. Jashua described that night as the best night of his life!

Yusha Evans was born in Greenville, South Carolina, where he grew up in an ultra-conservative Christian home. But in the summer of 1996, his life changed. He studied the Bible from cover to cover and found many things that were against his beliefs and realized that his entire life was not consistent with the outcome of his search.

He left Christianity and set off searching for the truth – after numerous transformations and turns, and ups and downs, and after looking into many religions of the world that search for the tangible proof for the right way of life.

He read the Bible from cover to cover and found a lot of ambiguities and meaningless things and noticed there were numerous versions of it, as anyone could add or omit anything to it in accordance to their personal agendas. Then, he decided this was the book he had been searching for throughout his life.

The major additions to, omissions from, and misleading translations to be found in the Bible. * Can’t be denied, Satan has done some damage. But that does not mean every version is wrong.

He mentioned, thereafter, that he completed extensive reading of the entire Qur’an in three days, after which he declared his conversion to Islam, in December 1998. He urges Muslims to convey the light they have far and wide.

His father was an atheist, while his mother was a follower of the Roman Catholic Church. Hence, Abdur-Rahīm Green was raised upon the Catholic beliefs from babyhood.

After the colony of Dar al-Salam in Tanzania gained independence, his parents returned to the United Kingdom, where Green joined the Catholic Monks boarding school and then Gilling Castle school, and finally Ampleforth College.

Green attended the Catholic churches. At the age of 11, he moved to Cairo after his father was offered a job there, and he used to spend his long holidays in this city.

Green began to pose questions about life and faith to his Catholic teacher, and he would defend faith versus atheism, even though he did not think that his beliefs were right.

Green’s interest in Islam as a religion began in 1987, and he managed to obtain a translated copy of the Qur’an. “I was amazed at this great and astonishing book,” he said.

Then, he officially converted to Islam in 1988. Yet, he continued to drink alcohol and eat pork. In one of his videos, he jokingly said:

After embracing Islam and spending a lot of time examining reliable sources and studying the religion extensively, Green became one of the most prominent preachers of Islam in the West. He devoted his life to serving this religion and calling people to it.

Shaykh Abdur-Rahīm Green also used to give lectures at Speakers’ Corner in the famous Hyde Park in London, and he frequently appears on Peace TV and Islam TV channel.

My input: Islamic fundamentalist — there is no separation between the political and the religious. Islam is, in essence, both religion and regime (din wa-dawla) and no area of human activity is outside its remit.

Perfection lies in the ways of the Prophet and the events of his
time; therefore, religious innovations, philosophical relativism, and intellectual or political pluralism are anathema. In such a worldview, there can exist
only two camps — Dar al-Islam (“The House of Islam” — i.e., the Muslim
countries) and Dar al-Harp (“The House of War” — i.e., countries ruled by
any regime but Islam) — which are pitted against each other until the final
victory of Islam. These concepts are carried to their extreme conclusion by
the radicals; however, they have deep roots in mainstream Islam. {end}

{Allah: none has the right to be worshiped except Him, the Ever-Living, All-Sustaining. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on earth. Who is there that can intercede with Him except with His permission? He knows what was before them and what will be after them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge, except what He wills. His Kursī [footstool] extends over the heavens and earth, and safeguarding of both does not weary Him, for He is the Most High, the Most Great.}[Surat al-Baqarah: 255]

This universe did not come from nothing. It comprises a very delicate cosmic engineering. Hence, this life must be consistent with Allah’s intent.

I used to read the Gospel a lot. But I always saw that it does not accord with science. Science has certain facts and things, and the Bible says something different. I cannot believe in anything without proof. This caused a conflict within me. * Genesis Science Network – Science from a Biblical view

Questions began to come to my mind one after another, and doubts sneaked into my soul. I said: ‘I must go to the church,’ which I did. I met the priest and posed many questions to him, like: ‘Why is God three though He is supposed to be One?’

I asked him to convince me of the allegation of trinity and the reason behind salvation. If the Messiah was a god, what was the salvation for?

He answered me: ‘You should believe with your heart only.’ This phrase was like telling me: Do not think, do not discuss, do not ask. I cannot do that. I cannot believe in anything unless it is established to me by a proof. {thankfully there is an answer}

If we exclude Barnabas’s clear and explicit prophesies about the mission of Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him), mentioning him by name, as the church does not acknowledge this Gospel in the first place, Christ gave nine prophesies in the Gospel of John. The word ‘paraclete’, which is used by John in several prophesies, has five meanings: the comforter, the intercessor, the lawyer, the praised one, the praiseworthy one. All these meanings fully apply to Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him). He is the comforter to the group of believers and followers of the truth after their past loss and decadence. And he is the lawyer who defends Jesus, the son of Mary, and all prophets and messengers after the Jews and Christians distorted their image and changed their religion, which is Islam.

The Letter of Barnabas was essentially a treatise on the use of the Old Testament by Christians. Very anti-Jewish, the author believed that the Old Testament could not be fully understood by Jews, as its significance could be understood only by those who read it and searched for types, or prefigurations, of Jesus. I also Barnabus mentioned Mohammad since he wasn’t yet born. What did Barnabas encourage them towards? “He encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts” (verse 23c). Perhaps this was his way of saying: Remember this day always. Remain true even when temptation comes.

Hence, the Gospel of John, 14:16-17, says: “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; the spirit of the truth.” In another prophesy, 16:13-14, He says: “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you to all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me.” This agrees with the Qur’anic verse

Notice the actual verses.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ” 16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

“another Comforter” is real he is the Holy Spirit not Muhammad.

The fact that the Bible credits two different people with killing Goliath. {where?} According to 1 Samuel 17, Goliath, a heavily armed Philistine giant, challenged Saul for 40 days to send out a man to fight him. No one would face this warrior until David, armed only with a sling and stones, volunteered. David hit the giant in the forehead with a stone and killed him

The major additions to, omissions from, and misleading translations to be found in the Bible. * Can’t be denied, Satan has done some damage. But that does not mean every version is wrong.

Is there a difference between the Christian God and Allah?

God bless, Dan Beliveau
