When we witness to Muslims, we’re going to have to attack their final authority. Muslim’s final authority is the Quran, the most holy writing to them. The second most holy writing in Islam is the Hadith.
The reason why they will not believe the verses that we give out of the Bible is because they believe the Quran or Hadith is a replacement of the Bible.
The first thing that I usually do which is very effective is this: they believe that Jesus is a prophet so whatever Jesus said they’re going to have to believe it’s from God, so we can use the Bible and the verses and they will listen. There are those who are a little sharper, it doesn’t matter if we use verses and say that this is what Jesus said, they’re not going to listen because they’re going to say the greatest or most recent prophet is Muhammad. They claim he wrote the Quran then the Hadith, followed by the Muslim prophetic sayings and those things replaced the word of God, replaced the words of Jesus.
They have a doctrine in Islam called abrogation. This basically means that the sovereign God has the right to replace what he said earlier on. So no matter what kind of words of God we pull up from the Bible on what Jesus or God said, they’re going to say ‘Oh no, the Quran doesn’t teach that because that replaced what Jesus said so Muhammad is the replacement of Jesus.’
Quran 2:106 “We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten except that We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent?”
This is the verse on abrogation.
Quran 13:39 “Allah eliminates what He wills or confirms, and with Him is the Mother of the Book.”
The idea is because Allah is god, god can do whatever he wants, he can even replace his own words.
But we’re going to see the folly of abrogation. Let’s assume that this is a legit doctrine, it kind of makes sense that god is god, he can do whatever he wants so he can replace his own words. But what we’re going to find out is that it seems like their god Allah, he’s only using abrogation because he made mistakes before on what he said. Because he’s such an incompetent god, he has to make new laws to revise it.
Quran 3:59 “Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, “Be,” and he was.”
Quran 21:30 “Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?”
Quran 25:54 “And it is He who has created from water a human being and made him [a relative by] lineage and marriage. And ever is your Lord competent [concerning creation].”
Quran 96:1-2 “Recite in the name of your Lord who created – Created man from a clinging substance.”
Quran 15:26 “And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud.”
Quran 16:4 “He created man from a sperm-drop; then at once, he is a clear adversary.”
The peaceful ones would say no, the terrorists would be the ones that say yes. No wonder there are 2 different factions because their passages go by 2 different things.
Quran 2:193 “Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors..”
This says yes, you should force people to join.
Quran 2:256 “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.”
This says no.
This is an off-topic issue but to get you an idea why there are so many contradictions is because if you study the historic sources, there are Muslim scholars who quoted and documented that Muhammad did not write the Quran, all he did was just speaking stuff out of his mouth and somebody was writing it down for him. That’s why it makes sense all the contradictions you see is because all he was doing was spitting out whatever he felt like and he made a mess of the bible.
Quran 17:103 “So he intended to drive them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him all together.”
Quran 43:55 “And when they angered Us, We took retribution from them and drowned them all.”
Yes, he did.
Quran 10:90-92 “And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, “I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims.” Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters? So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people, of Our signs, are heedless”
No, Pharaoh did not drown in the Red Sea.
It contradicted itself, it just shows how incompetent Allah is. If it’s not Allah’s fault then it’s Muhammad’s fault, he was the one that wrote it, then you should blame him for being incompetent.
If we dismantle their book, the Quran, and their prophet Muhammad then we make them see that the Bible and Jesus should be more legit and trustworthy. When we witness to Muslims, we need to dismantle their final authority: Quran and Hadith, and their prophet Muhammad who wrote them, then they have no final authority. If they believe that Jesus is a prophet, we can use His words to support it.
Quran 32:4 “It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them in six days; then He established Himself above the Throne. You have not besides Him any protector or any intercessor; so will you not be reminded?”
Allah created the earth in 6 days.
Quran 41:9 “Say, “Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds.””
Allah created the earth in 2 days.
Quran 4:157 “And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.”
He was not killed.
Quran 3:55 “[Mention] when Allah said, “O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allah alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, and I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ.”
Here Allah said that he did die.
Quran 78:31-35 “Indeed, for the righteous is attainment – Gardens and grapevines And full-breasted [companions] of equal age And a full cup. No ill speech will they hear therein or any falsehood -“
Their god is not only incompetent but he’s perverted.
Quran 44:51-59 “Indeed, the righteous will be in a secure place; Within gardens and springs, Wearing [garments of] fine silk and brocade, facing each other. Thus. And We will marry them to fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes. They will call therein for every [kind of] fruit – safe and secure. They will not taste death therein except the first death, and He will have protected them from the punishment of Hellfire As bounty from your Lord. That is what is the great attainment. And indeed, We have eased the Qur’an in your tongue that they might be reminded. So watch, [O Muhammad]; indeed, they are watching [for your end].”
Quran 56:35-36 “Indeed, We have produced the women of Paradise in a [new] creation And made them virgins,”
Quran 47:15 “Is the description of Paradise, which the righteous are promised, wherein are rivers of water unaltered, rivers of milk the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink, and rivers of purified honey, in which they will have from all [kinds of] fruits and forgiveness from their Lord, like [that of] those who abide eternally in the Fire and are given to drink scalding water that will sever their intestines?”
But in paradise, (I guess they have a license to sin and) they drink wine over there.
Al-Hadis Volume 4:34
If we pull up these verses to the Muslims and they say, Oh no, God doesn’t teach that anymore, that was something way back then, then we can tell them that he must have been a very incompetent, perverted god because he was saying a bunch of perverted things in the past and now he’s trying to cover it up.
Quran 5:17-18 “They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary. Say, “Then who could prevent Allah at all if He had intended to destroy Christ, the son of Mary, or his mother or everyone on the earth?” And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. But the Jews and the Christians say, “We are the children of Allah and His beloved.” Say, “Then why does He punish you for your sins?” Rather, you are human beings from among those He has created. He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, and to Him is the [final] destination.”
Muslims deny the Trinity very hard. They called their god ‘Allah’ because it means ‘the god’, so basically only one god. Islams consider infidels to be the Christians.
Quran 8:15-17 “O you who have believed, when you meet those who disbelieve advancing [for battle], do not turn to them your backs [in flight]. And whoever turns his back to them on such a day, unless swerving [as a strategy] for war or joining [another] company, has certainly returned with anger [upon him] from Allah, and his refuge is Hell – and wretched is the destination. And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them. And you threw not, [O Muhammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw that He might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.”
Quran 4:76-77 “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak. Have you not seen those who were told, “Restrain your hands [from fighting] and establish prayer and give zakah”? But then when fighting was ordained for them, at once a party of them feared men as they fear Allah or with [even] greater fear. They said, “Our Lord, why have You decreed upon us fighting? If only You had postponed [it for] us for a short time.” Say, The enjoyment of this world is little, and the Hereafter is better for he who fears Allah . And injustice will not be done to you, [even] as much as a thread [inside a date seed].””
If you’re a true Muslim, you will fear god and you will fight in war for him. But if you reject fighting in war for Allah then you actually don’t fear god at all, you fear men.
Quran 5:51 “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.”
Quran 3:28 “Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence. And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the [final] destination.”
Christians will always have hope and when we die, we will still die in hope. But Muslims don’t have that. They have to cling onto terrorism and hatred, without that they lose their hope, their life, their religion. That’s why this religion is dangerous.
Quran 9:81-84 “Those who remained behind rejoiced in their staying [at home] after [the departure of] the Messenger of Allah and disliked to strive with their wealth and their lives in the cause of Allah and said, ‘Do not go forth in the heat.” Say, “The fire of Hell is more intensive in heat” – if they would but understand. So let them laugh a little and [then] weep much as recompense for what they used to earn. If Allah should return you to a faction of them [after the expedition] and then they ask your permission to go out [to battle], say, “You will not go out with me, ever, and you will never fight with me an enemy. Indeed, you were satisfied with sitting [at home] the first time, so sit [now] with those who stay behind.” And do not pray [the funeral prayer, O Muhammad], over any of them who has died – ever – or stand at his grave. Indeed, they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger and died while they were defiantly disobedient.”
Quran 9:85-89 “And let not their wealth and their children impress you. Allah only intends to punish them through them in this world and that their souls should depart [at death] while they are disbelievers. And when a surah was revealed [enjoining them] to believe in Allah and to fight with His Messenger, those of wealth among them asked your permission [to stay back] and said, “Leave us to be with them who sit [at home].” They were satisfied to be with those who stay behind, and their hearts were sealed over, so they do not understand. But the Messenger and those who believed with him fought with their wealth and their lives. Those will have [all that is] good, and it is those who are the successful. Allah has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide eternally. That is the great attainment.”
Allah have prepared paradise for those who actually go to war but those who do not go to war and want to enjoy and sit down at home at the world, they have their reward.
If we pull up these verses that show about killing people and all that, one Muslim argument that they will do is they’d say that the Christian Buble also shows that God demanded the Israelites to slay various tribes in Canaan.
The simple answer is this: If we look at the Bible, the Israelites weren’t conquering the whole world, slaughtering everyone to their religion, they were redeeming their land. That was normal during those days, the culture was very different.
The most positive beneficial culture was the Jews in every historical period. It doesn’t change the fact that Christianity, God’s religion, the Bible is the most positive beneficial religion in every historical age.
Genesis 15:18-21 “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”
Deutronomy 7:1-2 “When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:”
God commanded Israel to slay their enemies because the land of Israel belonged to them, not to the other tribes.
What about today? God doesn’t use Israel anymore, He uses the Christian church. What do we do today?
Romans 12:20-21 “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
We’re supposed to treat our enemies well.
Christianity is a more beneficial religion than Islam, that’s what we want to aim for the Muslims, is to make them see that the authority for Christians is better, the profit of Christianity is better and the most beneficial life to live in is Christianity: with peace, assurance of salvation and joy. But, compared to Islam, it’s hatred, violence, and no hope.
