I have been encountering many people who claim to be Christians, yet they defend Islam and Allah. I do not understand how they can believe this. If they read their Scriptures, and they learn anything about Islam at all, they should be able to see that Allah is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Therefore, I choose to assume that these ‘Christians’ do not read their Scripture. But what is more puzzling is how so many of these same ‘Christians’ will call me a hater, a bigot and a racist when I try to educate them about Islam by sharing Muhammad’s own words with them. Recently, I have had ‘Christians’ tell me I am ‘cherry picking’ the Qur’an the same way I can cherry pick the Bible. Again, I choose to believe these ‘Christians’ do not read their Scriptures. Otherwise, how could they attack me for offering correction and edification? They are commanded — by Christ and His Apostles — not to do such things. But, more than this, how could these ‘Christians’ equate the Bible with the Qur’an, or Yahweh with Allah? I say I ‘choose’ to believe these ‘Christians’ do not know their Scriptures because the alternative is not something I want to accept:
IF YOU DEFEND ALLAH OR ISLAM, YOU DEFEND SATAN!
Before I go any farther, let me make something absolutely clear: I am not addressing any individual. I am not attacking Muslims, I am addressing Muhammad and his teachings about Allah. This means I am not a bigot, or a racist, nor do I ‘hate.’ It means I am seeking and speaking the Truth. If you feel the need to call me a bigot or a racist, or accuse me of ‘hate,’ then you had better be prepared to cite Scripture that clearly shows me where I am in error because, if you accuse on this issue without God’s Word to support you, you defend Allah/Islam. And if you defend Allah/Islam, YOU DEFEND SATAN!
Now, from the Qur’an, which Muhammad claims is the word of Allah (as given to him by the angel, Gabriel):
(This is) the Revelation of the Book in which there is no doubt – from the Lord of the Worlds.
Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds:
From the Bible:
2 Corinthians 4:4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Bible, which Muhammad said Muslims are to read for ‘guidance and light,’ the Bible declares that Satan is ‘The God (Lord) of this World.’
From the Qur’an (53:49):
And that He (Allah) is the Lord of Sirius (the star which the pagan Arabs used to worship);
From the Bible:
Isaiah 14:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 “How you have fallen from heaven,
O [a]star of the morning, son of the dawn!
You have been cut down to the earth,
You who have weakened the nations!
18 And He said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.
Allah claimed that he is:
And (the unbelievers) plotted and schemed, and Allah too planned, and the best of schemers is Allah.
“Remember how the unbelievers plotted against you (Muhammad). They plotted, and Allah too had arranged a plot; but Allah is the best schemer.”
“Whomever Allah wants to deceive you cannot help. Allah does not want them to know the truth because he intends to disgrace them and then torture them.”
“Surely the hypocrites strive to deceive Allah. He shall retaliate by deceiving them.”
“Say, ‘God leads whosoever He wills astray.'”
There are many more such passages in the Qur’an and Hadith (sayings and customs of Muhammad). I cited these so that you can have a feel for the general tone of these passages. While they use many different words, the general thought or idea is to teach that Muhammad is ‘the greatest of deceivers.’ In fact, Muhammad said this is one of ‘the 99 beautiful names of Allah.’
On the other hand, the Bible says that Yahweh is not a God of deception. However, there are many passages in the Bible that describe Satan as a deceiver. But Scripture is even more clear as to who Satan is:
John 8:44 New International Version (NIV)
44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Keep this in mind: Muhammad did not give the name to Allah, Allah claimed it, himself. Now, read this passage from Muhammad’s night journey (part of the Hadith and biography of Muhammad — both official ‘holy books’ of Islam). It describes Muhammad’s encounter with one of Allah’s creatures, Al-Buraq:’
“His color was that of a peacock whose plumage was set with red rubies and corals, on which sat a white head of musk on a neck of amber. His ears and shoulders were of pure white pearls attached with golden chains, each chain decorated with glittering jewels. His saddle was made of silk lined with silver and gold threads. His back was covered with green emeralds and his halter was pure peridot.”
And compare it to this Bible passage about Satan:
Ezekiel 28:13 New International Version (NIV)
13 You were in Eden,
the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,
topaz, onyx and jasper,
lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.[a]
Your settings and mountings[b] were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.
Now, we must understand that it would be a mistake to demand that the Bible and Qur’an use the exact same language in all cases before we accept that the Bible and Qur’an are the negation of each other. What we should look for instead are similarity of ideas. If we do that, we will find that the Bible and Qur’an are filled with many contradictory claims, and that they are asserted in very similar language (as I have shown above). I have not posted all of them. If you look, you will also find one of the 99 beautiful names of Allah is ‘The Most Proud One,’ but the Bible condemns pride. The Qur’an claims that Muhammad’s name is derived from one of Allah’s names, much the same way as Yeshuah is derived from Yahweh. The Qur’an claims that Muhammad is ‘the exalted one,’ and that Muhammad sits at the right hand of Allah and intercedes for Muslims. The Bible teaches that these things apply to Jesus, but that Jesus intercedes for all those who accept Him as their Savior. In short, the Qur’an denies everything the Bible teaches, but then tries to substitute a replacement theology where Allah takes Yahweh’s place, Muhammad takes Yeshuah’s place and some supposed ‘angel’ takes the place of the Holy Spirit.
If one reads the Bible, one should immediately recognize exactly whose hand is at work in Islam, and it is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So, for anyone who claims the Name of Christ to defend Islam, or claim that Yahweh and Allah are one… Well, if you do not already know what Scripture says about this subject, you are not going to listen to me if I try to explain it. All I can say is that, if you do not see and understand what I am trying to show you, then you are standing on Spiritually perilous ground. I strongly advise you get into your Bible and beg the Lord to open your eyes and show you His Truth – now! Before it is too late.
