True Muslim Beliefs Which Are Verifiable
Too many are unacquainted with Islam, which continues to grow worldwide. Hence, documented facts and definition of terms are desperately needed.
What you are about to read are the facts about what Muslims really believe, as disturbing or delightful as they may be to the readers.
Often they come from Islam's most authoritative source, which they call the noble
Briefly stated, Muhammad (570 CE-632 CE) from Saudi Arabia was a self-proclaimed prophet, who declared himself to receive Allah's (God's) revelations through the angel Gabriel -- claiming to restore the original monotheistic faith (Islam). Those revelations to Muhammad, over a period of 23 years, were first memorized, then later written down from memory in a book called the Quran, which means the recitation. The Islam of the 7th century when Muhammad was alive is the same Islam taught in the Quran today.
Islam (as defined by Muhammad) believes Abraham's chosen son of promise, and with whom God established his covenant, was Ishmael, instead of Isaac, as stated in scripture (Gen. 17:18,19; 21:12; 22:2; Gal. 4:22-29; etc.).
[Note: Jesus repeatedly referred to the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob (Mt. 22:32; Mk. 12:26; Lk. 20:37). Never did the Lord Jesus refer to Abraham, Ishmael and (his child).] Islam also believes the prophet likened unto Moses that God would raise up (Dt. 18:18,19) was Muhammad, while scripture instead says it is Jesus (Acts 3:20-23). Moreover, Islam believes Jesus would send after him the Paraclete, Comforter and helper, who Muslims have been taught was Muhammad, while the bible explicitly states the Paraclete, Comforter and helper, is the Holy Spirit (Jn. 14:26; 16:7; 16:12,13), who testifies about Jesus (Jn. 15:26). All of that misinformation has led to the Muslim's chief dogma: There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet. Just on the aforementioned alone, Muhammad fails the test mentioned at 1 John 4:1 cf. 2 Tim. 3:16,17, but there is even more.
The Muslim's Paradise
The Quran's Paradise
is gardens and vineyards for all the faithful, which even includes Muslims who die physically fighting against non-Muslims (Surah 3:195). Paradise
is more designed for men (rather than women) to have sex with dark eyed houris
-- virgin maidens with swelling breasts (which seemingly excludes their earthly wives). In Paradise, Muslims believe the faithful will have sex, drink wine, eat fowl, be decked with bracelets of gold, pearls and silk garments and lay on shaded jeweled couches, served on golden plates and cups, amidst gushing water and abundant fruit. There are rivers of water, rivers of wine, rivers of milk and rivers of honey in Paradise for faithful Muslims to enjoy. The faithful there will be waited on by young boys of their own (Surah 22:23,24; 43:71; 44:51-56; 47:15; 52:24; 55:54; 56:12-40; 76:12-21; 77:41-43; 78:32-34; etc. ).
Islamic Terms and Definitions
The following are some of the Islamic terms which often hinder one's understanding of Muslim beliefs: Shirk
-- the sin of idolatry, as defined by Islam. To them that is deifying or worshiping anyone or anything other than Allah. To the Muslims, Christians are guilty of shirk because of their belief in the deity of Christ, even though such is taught throughout scripture
(Isa. 9:6; Isa. 40:3 cf. Mt. 3:1-3; 28:18; Jn. 1:1,14; 20:28; Acts 20:28; Rom. 9:5; Phil. 2:6-8; 2 Pet. 1:1; Tit. 2:13; 1 John 5:20; etc.); Very important is taqiyya.
For the Muslim that means: (1) a feigned denial and rejection of the Islamic faith by a Muslim under persecution (Surah 16:106) and/or (2) the allowed type of deception
--that if Muslims can't fight the non-Muslims and conquer at the moment, deceive them (the ones you are to hate) by being friendly so you can gain their trust and they will be off their guard when you do fight them (Surah 3:28; 16:106); Shariah
(or Sharia) -- the Islamic religious legal system governing Muslims; Jinn
-- demons; Surah
-- a chapter in the Quran; Jihad
-- holy war which includes the religious duty of Muslims to physically fight against others, based on their beliefs,
to the point of sometimes killing them; People of the book
-- Jews and Christians.
Islam (as defined by Muhammad) believes Abraham's chosen
son of promise, and with whom God established his
covenant, was Ishmael.The Bible says it is Isaac
(Gen. 17:18,19; 21:12; 22:2; Gal. 4:22-29; etc.).
Some Internal Contradictions Within The Quran: Moses was the first Muslim (Surah 7:143,144), then Surah 3:67 states Abraham (who lived before Moses) bowed to Allah's will making him the first; it is not okay to marry idolatrous women (Surah 2:221), then yes, it is okay to marry unbelievers (Surah 5:5);
1 day to Allah = 1,000 years (Surah 22:47), then a day to Allah = 50,000 years (Surah 70:4). Islam is the only religion acceptable to God (Surah 3:85), then it says some people of the book (Jews and Christians) are righteous (Surah 3:113-115). Regarding the golden calf incident, the Quran has the idolatrous Hebrews repenting before Moses returned (Surah 7:149), but in a different account in the Quran they did not repent before Moses returned (Surah 20:91). A major contradiction to that event and the bible is also shown where the Quran has Moses putting down the stone 10 commandment tablets and grabbing Aaron by the hair and dragging him to himself (Surah 7:150, 154), instead of breaking them to pieces as taught in the Bible and with no mention of grabbing Aaron by hair and dragging him to himself (Ex.32:19-21). Quran discrepancies prove it is not from God (Surah 4:82).
Some Quran Contradictions With The Bible (besides the glaring ones of denying the crucifixion of Christ and his identity as the one of a kind Son of God): One of Noah's sons died in the Flood and the Ark came to rest on Mt. Judi (Surah 11:42-44), while the bible says all of Noah's sons were saved in the Ark with him (Gen. 7:7,13; 8:18; 1 Pet. 3:20) and the Ark finally came to rest on Mt. Ararat (Gen. 8:4). The righteous in Paradise will have garments of silk (Surah 22:23), but the bible says they are linen robes (Rev. 19:8,14). Cain talked with Abel about killing him before Abel was murdered, followed by a raven scratching the ground to mark the burial spot for Abel (Surah 5:27-31), while Gen 4:8-10 states Cain attacked his brother in a field, without any prior conversation or raven mentioned. Hell fire was made for evil people (Surah 48:6), but the bible says eternal fire was prepared for the devil and his angels (Mt. 25:41).
Muhammad Thought Miriam Was Mary
The Quran teaches Mary was the sister of Aaron (Surah 19:28), but the bible shows it was Miriam who was the sister of Aaron and Moses (Ex. 15:20; 1 Chron. 6:3) and they lived about 1,400 years earlier than Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Muhammad apparently thought Miriam (the sister of Moses and Aaron) was the same Mary who gave birth to Jesus. More substantiating proof of Muhammad's confusion (and another error in the Quran) is that the Quran says Mary is the daughter of Imran (Surah 66:12), again displacing her 1,400 years earlier as the sister of Moses and Aaron. Amram was the father of Moses, Aaron and Miriam (1 Chron. 6:3), but his name is Arabicized to Imran in the Quran. The truth is, the only sister of Aaron and daughter of Amram (Imran) was Miriam, not Mary, who lived centuries later.
The Quran Teaches The Bible is Accurate -- NOT Corrupted
Christians are to judge based on the Gospel (Surah 5:47), which falsifies and disproves the Quran and Muhammad.
based on the Gospel also assumes Christians have reliable accurate
scriptures to judge by, proving the bible has not been corrupted
(as charged by Muslims). Again, the Quran exalts the Bible as an accurate guidance (Surah 5:47; 3:3; 4:136; 29:46); and the Bible condemns and discredits the Quran, Muhammad and Islam, as shown.
Very Strange Erroneous Quran Declarations: The moon is cleft in two (Surah 54:1); birds have pelted elephants with clay stones so that the elephants became like withered grass which has been eaten (Surah 105:1-5);
Sabbath breakers are changed into apes (Surah 2:65); the sun sets in a pool of black mud (Surah 18:86); the dead are raised with slices of beef (Surah 2:72,73); hail comes from heaven's mountains (Surah 24:43); meteors are hurled at demons (Surah 37:8); stars are missiles to pelt the devils (Surah 67:5); the earth is flat (Surah 88:20).
Muhammad left a trail of blood as he killed people who even verbally criticized him (such as Abu Afak and Asma Marwan), raping and beating women, enslaving children and promoting polygamy. Even Muslim's own disobedient wives are to be physically beaten (Surah 4:34).
Muhammad violently opposed the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and persecuted the Lord's faithful followers to their death (Surah 48:29 cf. 8:12; 47:4). Specifically, he and his followers adamantly deny that Jesus was crucified, further adding that the crucifixion would be a monstrous falsehood against Mary (Surah 4:156,157).
Muhammad was against all idolatry, as defined by him, with the exception to Muhammad's own idolatry of kissing the black stone of Kaaba, which is still practiced today among Muslims.
Proof That Muhammad Was An Idolatrous Pedophile and Child Molester
(the one proclaimed as the messenger of Allah)
kissed the black stone of Kaaba:
A man asked Ibn 'Umar about the touching of the Black Stone. Ibn 'Umar said, "I saw Allah's Apostle touching and kissing it." The questioner said, "But if there were a throng (much rush) round the Ka'ba and the people overpowered me, (what would I do?)" He replied angrily, "Stay in Yemen (as that man was from Yemen). I saw Allah's Apostle touching and kissing it." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 26, Number 680)
Muhammad also had nine wives
(Sahih Bukhari, Volume-1, Book-5, Hadith-268), while the Quran limits the number to 4
(Surah 4:3). One of Muhammad's wives was a 6 year old child-bride (Aisha), with whom he started having sex when she was 9
(Sahih Al-Bukhari, vol 7, book 62, #64,65).
(If, like most children, Aisha still had her baby teeth at that point.) Muhammad was 53 years old then. Muhammad himself, therefore, was a pedophile and child molester by definition, but such doesn't end there. Muhammad openly allowed his followers to have wives who were pre-menstruated girls (Surah 65:4), thus more child marriages and even more pedophile behavior among Muslims. Sex with their slave-girls (plural) is also allowed
The Muslim's Quran (Koran) claims to be the word of Allah, but has definite internal and external contradictions mixed in with glaring inaccuracies and impossibilities (as previously shown), while it claims no discrepancies for itself (Surah 4:82) and repeatedly teaches to physically fight against all who reject Islam because of their personal beliefs -- even to cutting off people's limbs, fingertips and heads (Surah 5:33; 8:12; 9:5; 47:4; etc.). Fighting is obligatory (Surah 2:216). To follow Muhammad is to be ruthless to unbelievers (Surah 48:29). True believers fight with their wealth and with their persons in the cause of God (Surah 49:15,16). God loves those who fight for his cause in ranks as firm as a mighty edifice (Surah 61:4).
But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah 9:5)
The Fruit of Islam's Quran and Muhammad
Islam, unlike all other world religions, has produced suicide
bombers, pedophiles, polygamists, female genital mutilations, honor killings, child marriages well below the age of puberty and a flood of violent opposition and bloodshed to all other religions (Surah 8:38,39; 9:29,30,39), especially professing Jews and Christians, which the Quran openly declares are the worst of all people and will go to Hell
(Surah 98:6). Muslims are forbidden to take Jews or Christians as their friends (Surah 5:51). Through misinformation, propaganda and Islamic taqiyya deception (Surah 3:28), the Islam of the Quran has been sanitized and distorted as a religion of peace.
At present, there are about 1.6 billion Muslim people who are supposed to pray 5 times a day facing Mecca and the Kaaba with its black stone (which they kiss to get forgiven of sins), accept Muhammad as their prophet and implicitly believe the Quran is Allah's word.
Sadly, because of their beliefs and practices, Muslims don't know the real Jesus who died for them and, therefore, remain in the greatest spiritual danger in the universe, based on God's word.
Bible Truth For Muslims
The biblical message for all, including Muslims, is:
repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 20:21 cf. 26:20). We must deny ourselves and take up our cross daily and follow Jesus (Lk. 9:23). All
of the sexually immoral, drunkards, liars, thieves, homosexuals
, idolaters, sorcerers
, murderers, etc. are unrighteous
and will not inherit God's Paradise kingdom
in that condition (1 Cor. 6:9-11; Eph. 5:5-7; Rev. 21:8; etc.), but can be forgiven through repentance
and a submissive faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
(Acts 26:18; Eph. 5:24a; Gal. 3:27; etc.). Jesus is the son of God,
as proclaimed by the angel Gabriel (Lk. 1:35), the heavenly father (Mt. 17:5), Jesus himself (Jn. 3:16; etc.) and Jesus' apostles (Acts 9:20; 1 John 1:3; etc.), though flatly disclaimed in Islam.
On that point alone, without considering all the other evidence, the God of the bible is definitely proven to not be the Allah of Islam.
Jesus is Greater Than Muhammad Based on the Quran
According to the Quran: Jesus was sinless, spoke from the cradle (Surah 3:46; 19:29,30), created a living bird out of clay (Surah 3:49), healed and raised people from the dead (Surah 3:49), is the word of God (Surah 4:171), is alive now and is coming back.
On the other hand Muhammad was a sinner (Surah 47:19); never spoke from the cradle; never created a living bird, never healed anyone or raised a single person from the dead, is not alive now, is not the word of God and is not coming back. Just based on that evidence alone, Jesus is greater than Muhammad.
The Real Lord Jesus Christ
In reality: Jesus, not Muhammad, is sitting on the throne at the right hand of the Father in heaven (Rom. 3:4; Eph. 1:20; Heb. 1:3; etc.). It is Jesus, not Muhammad, that every knee will bow to and every tongue confess is Lord
(Phil. 2:10,11), including Muhammad. It is Jesus, not Muhammad, who is the judge of the living and the dead
(2 Tim. 4:1), thereby showing the Lord Jesus will judge Muhammad, as well as you, the reader.
The real Jesus uniquely has the only name in which salvation is found (Acts 4:12), is the way, the truth and the life (Jn. 14:6), the door and good shepherd for the sheep (Jn. 10:7-11), the only mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 12:24; etc.), is the only one in heaven and earth worthy to open the 7 seals of the scroll (Rev. 5:1-5), created all things for himself (Col. 1:16) is the Lord of lords and King of kings (Rev. 17:14) and much more. See 100 Biblical Names, Offices and Titles Reveal Who Is Jesus Christ (https://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/titles-of-jesus-names2.htm)
Eternal life is only found in Jesus Christ (1 John 5:12), who is eternal life (1 John 1:2). Believing or disbelieving on Jesus (without Muhammad at all) is what saves from condemnation or not (Jn. 3:18; 1 John 5:12; etc.).
Believing or disbelieving on JESUS
(without Muhammad at all) is
what saves from condemnation or not.
The real Jesus is also prayed to (Acts 7:59; 1 Cor. 1:2; etc.), worshiped (Heb. 1:6; Lk. 24:52; etc.), trusted in equally as God is (Jn. 14:1), equally praised and worshiped in heaven with the Father (Rev. 5:13,14),
to be equally honored and revered as the Father is (Jn. 5:23), was crucified for our sins and resurrected (Acts 4:10; 1 Cor. 15:2-4; etc.), now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone (Heb 2:9). Jesus now has all power in heaven and earth (Mt. 28:18). That Jesus is the true light (Jn. 1:9), true bread (Jn. 6:32) and true vine (Jn. 15:1), but he is not the Jesus believed by Muslims.
Again, the real Jesus is very unlike Islam's different Jesus (2 Cor. 11:4) -- who was only a messenger of God (Surah 4:171), no more than an apostle (Surah 4:171; 5:75), on a par with Ishmael, Jacob and other prophets (Surah 2:136), not the Son of God (Surah 2:116; 9:30) and never crucified for our sins (Surah 4:157). Without question, the spirit and message of the Quran is totally different from the holy bible and therefore cannot be from the same supernatural source -- the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit -- who inspired the bible, which focuses on the Lord Jesus Christ and his redemptive holy cleansing blood sacrifice for our sins at the cross (Acts 20:28; Rom. 3:25; 5:9; Eph. 2:13; Col. 1:20; 1 Pet. 1:18,19; Rev. 1:5; 7:14).
Dear reader, for your own soul's sake, humbly and sincerely go to Jesus directly and ask him for living water (Jn. 4:10; 5:39,40), forgiveness of your sins (Mt. 9:2-6; Lk. 7:36-50; 23:42,43) and rest for your soul (Mt. 11:28-30). Follow Jesus (Mk. 1:17; 2:14; 8:34; etc.), live holy (2 Pet. 3:11; 1 John 2:3,4; 3:7,8; Heb. 5:9; etc.) and make your short life count for God (Gal. 2:19; 1 Cor. 9:24; Rom. 12:11). Be an honor to the Lord Jesus (2 Cor. 8:19; 8:23),
who is the bread of life and the resurrection and the life (Jn. 6:35; 11:25,26). If you disown Jesus before man, he'll disown you before the father (Mt. 10:33). You must love the real Jesus more than your own natural family and life, as well as take up your cross and follow him to be worthy of Jesus (Mt. 10:35-39; Lk. 14:26,27; Rev. 12:11).
Do you? All men will hate you because of Jesus, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved (Mt. 10:22).
Jesus Warns of False Prophets
Jesus taught: "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell
" (Mt .10:28). Unlike Muhammad, "All the [true] prophets testify about him [Jesus] that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name" (Acts 10:43). True salvation will set you free from your sin addictions (Rom. 6:18; 6:22) and put love in your heart for bible-defined Christians (Jn. 13:35 cf. 1 John 3:14,15). Jesus also warned not to be deceived by false prophets, who will come after him and deceive many (Mt. 24:11; etc.). You decide if you will be one of the many. What you just read is the truth and can be easily verified. Nothing here has been distorted or is Islamophobia.
