Remember that We and Us are singular in Koranic Arabic and refer to a single entity named Allah whom the Koran identifies as creator, that SAW is a title of respect for the prophet and in translations from Arabic to English when the word God or Lord is used it always refers to the Allah of Mohammad’s Koran.
#6) The discussion concerning the invitation to Islam is continued.
(Koran 4:171- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “O people of the scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits of your religion, nor say of Allah but of the truth. The Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), was no more than a Messenger of Allah and His Word, (“Be” – and he was) which He bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (Ruh) created by Him; so believe in Allah and His Messengers.
Say not: “Three (trinity) Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allah is (the only) One Ilah (God), Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is AllSufficient as a Disposer of affairs.” NOTE: Mohammad is saying Jesus is not God’s Son but only a Messenger (prophet) created as Adam was created and that Allah created the spirit that is mentioned in the Holy Bible and there is no trinity. END OF NOTE.
#7) How is the invitation to Islam offered?
(Sahih Muslim, Book 033, Number 6426) “The Prophet Muhammad said; No babe is born but upon Fitra (as a Muslim). It is his parents who make him a Jew or Christian or a Polytheist.” “Islam is the religion of all Prophets, Adam to Muhammad. Children are not born out of any sin, original, inherited or derived. They are born on the religion of their nature, i.e., Islam.” (Soorah Al-A’raaf, Verses 172-173) “Allah explained that when He created Adam, He caused all of Adam’s descendants to come into existence and took a pledge from them saying, Am I not your Lord? To which they all replied, “Yes, we testify to it.”
The following quotes are from a single article titled Why we are here? (www.quran-islam.org/main_topics/why_are_we_here_(P1351).html 23:115 “Did you think that We created you futilely and that you would not be returned to Us?” That Website’s Author Explains: “The reason we were brought into this world is given in the Quran. Although this information is not presented in the Quran in chronological sequence, nor grouped in one Sura, various verses give pieces of information which together present the full picture."
"The Quran confirms that we were all living in God’s kingdom before we were brought into this world. Although this is our first and only life on planet earth, it is not our first existence. We were all living before the earth was created. We were put to death and reborn into this life on earth:”
From the same article: (Koran 67:1-2) “Blessed is the one in whose hands is the sovereignty and He is Capable of all things. The One who created death and life that He may test you regarding who will do better works, He is the Dignified, the Forgiving.”
That Website’s Author Explains: “There are no words in the Quran that are coincidental, and since God is always precise in expressing and delivering any truth, we cannot overlook the order in which the words “The One who created death and life” are placed. The placing of the word “death” before “life” indicates that we were put to death before we were brought to this life on earth, hence we must have been alive before we came to this world. End of single article quotes.
NOTE: Yes, the above is repeated from Part 12. It is that important. Due to the length of the above article please, please read the complete article in the above website for a complete explanation of all things created. It is an eye-opener into Islam’s teaching concerning creation and thus the invitation to Islam. END OF NOTE.
PLEASE SEE: www.holybooks.info/sura_9.html for a Quranic general offer of Islam to various groups and individuals and the reason they should accept that offer. It is a very revealing picture of the heart of Islam.
Invitation of Islam Offered to Christians and Jews: (Koran 6:70- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “And leave alone those who take their religion as play and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world. But remind (them) with it (the Quran) lest a person be given up to destruction for that which he has earned, when he will find for himself no protector or intercessor besides Allah, and even if he offers every ransom, it will not be accepted from him. Such are they who are given up to destruction because of that which they have earned. For them will be a drink of boiling water and a painful torment because they used to disbelieve.”
EXAMPLES OF THE KORAN’S CONTRADICTIONS: Mohammad has said (Koran 8:12 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Shakir and Koran 47:4 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan: keywords in both: “those who disbelieve”) to fight Christians, Jews and pagans and to cut off their hands and heads. Then to offer the survivors the choice of accepting Allah and the Koran as their true religion or face execution." NOTE: Mohammad said to torture and then kill Christians, Jews, pagans and unbelievers who resist accepting the Koran (Islam) then offer the survivors the opportunity of accepting the Koran (Islam) or face execution. END OF NOTE.
(Koran 6:69- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “Those who fear Allah, keep their duty to Him and avoid evil are not responsible for them (the disbelievers) in any case, but (their duty) is to remind them, that they may avoid that (mockery of the Quran). [The order of this Verse was cancelled (abrogated) by the Verse 4:140].” See next paragraph:
(Koran 4:140 again- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Quran) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, then sit not down with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in hell.”
NOTE: Basically, Mohammad said don't have anything to do with the Koran deniers until they take the Koran seriously and don't stay with them or they will convert the Muslims away from Islam. This contradicts the torture and killing given above. END OF NOTE.
(Koran 5:77 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “Say (O Muhammad SAW): “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Exceed not the limits of your religion (by believing in something) other than the truth, and do not follow the vain desires of people who went astray in times gone by, and who misled many, and strayed (themselves) from the Right Path.” YET: As you have seen Islam claims many of the same prophets as do the Jews and Christians. END OF CONTRADICTIONS EXAMPLE.
Invitation of Islam Offered to Muslims who have strayed from their faith: (Koran 6:71-72- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “Say (O Muhammad SAW): “Shall we invoke others besides Allah (false deities), that can do us neither good nor harm, and shall we turn on our heels after Allah has guided us (to true Monotheism)? – like one whom the Shayatin (devils) have made to go astray, confused (wandering) through the earth, his companions calling him to guidance (saying): ‘Come to us.” Say: “Verily, Allah’s Guidance is the only guidance, and we have been commanded to submit (ourselves) to the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists);”
(V.72) “And to perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat)”, and to be obedient to Allah and fear Him, and it is He to Whom you shall be gathered.
(Koran 5:34- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “Except for those who (having fled away and then) came back (as Muslims) with repentance before they fall into your power, in that case, know that Allah is oftForgiving, Most Merciful.”
Invitation of Islam Offered to pagans who worship polytheism (many gods): (Koran 9:5- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.” NOTE: Mohammad is saying to kill the pagans until the survivors accept Islam, "the religion of peace". END OF NOTE.
(Koran 40:35- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Those who dispute about the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, without any authority that has come to them, it is greatly hateful and disgusting to Allah and those who believe. Thus does Allah seal up the heart of every arrogant, tyrant. (So they cannot guide themselves to the Right Path).”
(Koran 8:12- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Shakir) “When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. NOTE: Mohammad is once more saying to torture and murder disbelievers and Allah will cast terror into their hearts. Terror = Terrorism! The religion of peace? END OF NOTE.
(Koran 8:39- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone (in the whole world). But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”
NOTE: Mohammad is saying to make Islam the whole world religion, every person! Think about these three methods of invasion: #1) into a nation's society by immigration, #2) elected into its government's positions when enough votes are available (attempt to turn part of society against Israel AND when enough governmental positions are filled start to gradually bring in Sharia Laws) #3) and war on that nation by terrorism and/or armies. Has that started in America? Draw your own conclusions. END OF NOTE.
(Koran 8:67 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Pickthall) “It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world (Mohsin Khan- the money of ransom for freeing the captives) and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise.”
(Koran 8:1 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “They ask thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say (such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah and the Messenger, if ye do believe.” NOTE: Muslims being truthful and open to each other is the only way to "keep straight the relations between yourselves:" END OF NOTE.
What does Allah say about Jews and Christians, the People of the Book? (Koran 9:30 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “The Jews call ‘Uzair (Muhammad Sarwar- “Ezra”) a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old (Sahih International- lived before them) used to say, Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the truth!”
(Koran 9:29 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya (Shakir- tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” NOTE: The People of the Book named in the Koran are always Jews and Christians. END OF NOTE.
(Koran 19:88-91 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “They say: “(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son. (V.89) Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous! (90) At it the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains fall down in utter ruin. (91) That they should invoke a son for (Allah) Most Gracious.” NOTE: Mohammad says that it is monstrous that Allah (God) could have a Son named Jesus. END OF NOTE.
NOTE: Islam considers Christians to be polytheists (worshipping many gods) because Christians accept the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit as the triune Godhead. For effect Islam makes little distinction between pagans (those who worship many pagan gods) and Christianity. Kafir is a keyword in Koranic writings. SO:
Question: What is a Kafir? Wikipedia: “Kafir is an Arabic term (from the root K-F-R “to cover”) meaning “one who covers the truth” or “one who covers something.” It is also translated as “infidels” or “unbelievers”. The term alludes to a person who rejects or disbelieves in God according to the teachings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and denies the dominion and authority of Allah by treating the Gods of other religions as equals or otherwise does not heed the beliefs and prescriptions held by the religion of Islam.
Kafir is sometimes used interchangeably with mushrik (those who commit polytheism), [which is] another type of wrongdoer mentioned frequently in the Quran and Islamic works.” The Wikipedia definition of Kafir goes on and on if you wish to investigate.
SO: “one who covers the truth” or “one who covers something.” From the second paragraph above: Basically, Islam denies both Judaism and Christianity as legitimate religions (Gen. 17:19-21) because both religions accept Isaac as Abraham’s legitimate son by a legal wife and both religions consider Ishmael as Abraham’s illegitimate son by an Egyptian slave. THEN:
(Gen. 17:19-21) The Holy Scriptures of both Jews and Christians teach that Isaac (Abraham's son) and thus his physical seed (lineage) resulting in Judaism AND Isaac’s spiritual seed (lineage) through Jesus resulting in Christianity are the legitimate heirs to God’s covenant with Abraham. SO, Muhammad considers both to be Kafir. END OF NOTE.
#8) How do unbelievers become Muslims?
Muslim defined:- used as a noun- a follower of the religion of Islam; used as an adjective- of or relating to the Muslims or their religion.
https://IslamReligion.com This is verbatim: “Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process. All that a person has to do is say a sentence called the Testimony of Faith (Shahada), which is pronounced as: “La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad rasoolu Allah.” These Arabic words mean, “There is no true god (deity) but God (Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God.” Once a person says the Testimony of Faith (Shahada) with conviction and understanding its meaning, then he/she has become a Muslim.” AND:
verbatim: “The first part, “There is no true deity but God,” means that none has the right to be worshipped but God alone, and that God has neither partner or son. The second part means that Muhammad was a true Prophet sent by God to humankind. To be a Muslim, one should also: -Believe that the Holy Quran is the literal word of God, revealed by Him. -Believe that the Judgment Day (Resurrection Day) is true and will come. -Believe in the prophets that God sent and the books He revealed, and in His angels. -Accept Islam as his/her religion. -Not worship anything nor anyone except God. It is that easy!”
(Koran 30:43- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face to (the obedience of Allah, your Lord) the straight and right religion (Islamic Monotheism), before there comes from Allah a Day which none can avert it. On that Day men shall be divided (in two groups, a group in Paradise and a group in Hell.”
Remember that We and Us are singular in Koranic Arabic and refer to a single entity named Allah whom the Koran identifies as creator, that SAW is a title of respect for the prophet and in translations from Arabic to English when the word God or Lord is used it always refers to the Allah of Muhammad’s Koran.
#9) What is the Muslim relationship with Allah?
(Koran 2:2- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “This is the Book (the Quran), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqun [the pious and righteous persons who fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]."
(Koran 3:31- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan:) “Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
(Koran 3:32- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Shakir) “Say: Obey Allah and the Messenger, but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.” NOTE: These two Koran statements say man must love Allah first to get Allah to love him! END OF NOTE.
NOTE: These two Koran statements are the second biggest contradiction between Islam and Christianity because (John 3:16-21 esp. V.16 & Rom. 8:5-12 esp. V.8) the Holy Bible states "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." AND "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ (Jesus) died for us." The Holy Bible states God loved man first! END OF NOTE.
(Koran 2:285 & 286- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. “We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers. We hear, and we obey: (We seek) thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to thee is the end of all journeys.
(286) On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (Pray:) “Our Lord! Condem us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a burden Like that which thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith.”
www.quran-islam.org/main_topics/pillars_(P1188.html) Three Paragraphs: #1) “Although we do not see the words “Pillars of Islam” as such in the Quran, this is merely a phrase that speaks of the principal practices of the religion of Islam. These five practices constitute the foundation of Islam, they are: 1- Testimony of Faith (Shahada) 2- The Prayer (Salat) 3- The Obligatory Charity (Zakat) 4- The Fasting of Ramadan (Siyam) 5- The Pilgrimage (Hajj)."
#2) "Important Notice details presented here for each of the five pillars of Islam are a presentation of what is contained and authorized in the Quran and nothing else. Consequently, many rules/practices that are taken for granted and considered by many Muslims to be integral parts of Islamic practice are absent here simply because they are not authorized in the Quran. May we all be reminded of God's clear words in the Quran:"
#3) (6:114) "Shall I seek other than God as a law maker, when He has brought down to you this Book fully detailed? (33:2) Follow what is revealed to you from your Lord (42:21) Or do they have ‘shurka’ (partners) who legislate for them religious laws which were not authorized by God? If it were not for a decisive decree, they would have been judged immediately. Indeed, the transgressors shall have a painful punishment. Ultimately, it is up to each reader to decide for themselves whether to stick to God’s Law in the Quran or to follow additional practices not found in the Quran.”
https://www.islam-guide.com/ch3-16.htm “1- Testimony of Faith (Shahada): The testimony of faith is saying with conviction, There is no true god (deity) but God (Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God. The first part, There is no true god but God means that none has the right to be worshipped but God alone, and that God has neither partner nor son. The testimony of faith is the most important pillar of Islam.
2- The Prayer (Salat): Muslims perform five prayers a day. Each prayer does not take more than a few minutes to perform. Prayer in Islam is a direct link between the worshipper and God. There are no intermediaries between God and the worshipper. In prayer, a person feels inner happiness, peace, and comfort and that God is pleased with him or her. The Prophet Muhammad said: (Bilal, call (the people) to prayer, let us be comforted by it.) Bilal was one of Muhammad’s companions who was charged to call the prayers.
Prayers are performed at dawn, noon, mid-afternoon, sunset, and night. A Muslim may pray almost anywhere, such as in fields, offices, factories, or universities. (For detailed information on how to perform prayer, please refer to the links at How to Perform Prayer <(given on the website) or refer to the book entitled A Guide to Salat (Prayer) by M. A. K. Saqib.)
3- The Obligatory Charity (Zakat) Support of the Needy: All things belong to God, and wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. The original meaning of the word zakat is both ‘purification’ and ‘growth.’ Giving zakat means ‘giving a specified percentage on certain properties to certain classes of needy people.’ The percentage which is due on gold, silver, and cash funds that have reached about the amount of 85 grams of gold and held in possession for one lunar year is two and a half percent.
Our possessions are purified by setting aside a small portion for those in need, and, like the pruning of plants, this cutting back balances and encourages new growth. A person may also give as much as he or she pleases as voluntary alms or charity.
4- The Fasting of Ramadan (Siyam): Wikipedia: Ramadan (Arabic root word ramida or ar-ramad defined- scorching heat or dryness) is the ninth month of the Muslim year (Islam’s calendar is based on the lunar cycle) during which strict, obligatory fasting for adult Muslims from sunrise to sunset and is observed by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.
During fasting from sunrise to sunset Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, engaging in sex, and sinful behavior (insulting, backbiting, cursing, lying, etc. and fighting except in self-defense).
5- The Pilgrimage (Hajj): The Pilgrimage to Makkah (Mecca): The annual pilgrimage (Hajj) to Makkah is an obligation once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able to perform it. About two million people go to Makkah each year from every corner of the globe. Although Makkah is always filled with visitors, the annual Hajj is performed in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar. Male pilgrims wear special simple clothes which strip away distinctions of class and culture so that all stand equal before God."
Pilgrims pray at the Haram mosque in Makkah. In this mosque is the Kaaba (a black building) which Muslims turn toward when praying. The Kaaba is the place of worship which God commanded the Prophets Abraham and his son, Ishmael, to build.
The rites of the Hajj include circling the Kaaba seven times between the hillocks of Safa and Marwa, as Hagar did in her search for water. Then the pilgrims stand together in Arafa and ask God for what they wish and for His forgiveness, in what is often thought of as a preview of the Day of Judgment.
The end of the Hajj is marked by a festival, Eid Al-Adha, which is celebrated with prayers. This, and Eid al-Fir, a feast-day commemorating the end of Ramadan, are the two annual festivals of the Muslim calendar.”
See: https://www.scribd.com/document/39273859/The-Black-Stone-at-Kaaba “The Black Stone is a Muslim object of reverence, which according to Islamic traditions dates back to the time of Adam and Eve. Many consider it to be a Tektite. It is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient Sacred Stone towards which Muslims pray in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is covered with an elaborately gold-threaded embroidered Quranic verses on a black-draped cloth.” NOTE: The article includes pictures, please view them. END OF NOTE.
See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Stone If you desire an in-depth study of the Black Stone please see this website because it discusses the Black Stone, its description, appearance, history and tradition by the pre-Islamic pagans, Muhammad’s involvement with it before and after he had “his revelations”, its desecrations and ritual role, its meaning and symbolism. NOTE: It also includes very revealing pictures that will promote your understanding. END OF NOTE.
Remember that We and Us are singular in Koranic Arabic and refer to a single entity named Allah whom the Koran identifies as creator, that SAW is a title of respect for the prophet and in translations from Arabic to English when the word God or Lord is used it always refers to the Allah of Muhammad’s Koran.
#10) Muhammad’s Statements (Koran) Concerning Resurrection
(Koran 6:73- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “It is He Who has created the heavens and the earth in truth, and on the Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) He will say. “Be!”, - and it shall become. His word is the truth. His will be the dominion on the Day when the trumpet will be blown. AllKnower of the unseen and the seen. He is the AllWise, WellAware (of all things).”
(Koran 7:53- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Await they just for the final fulfillment of the event? On the Day the event is finally fulfilled (i.e. the Day of Resurrection), those who neglected it before will say: “Verily, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth, now are there any intercessors for us that they might intercede on our behalf?
Or could we be sent back (to the first life of the world) so that we might do (good) deeds other than those (evil) deeds which we used to do? Verily they have lost their ownselves (i.e. destroyed themselves) and that which they used to fabricate (invoking and worshipping others besides Allah) has gone away from them.” NOTE: Is this a plea to live life over so they don't go to hell? I think there will be people from all religions and the atheists also who will want to do that! END OF NOTE.
(Koran 74:1-56 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) NOTE: You can read this rambling account that touches on Allah’s goodness, the resurrection, judgment, hell and various warnings to unbelievers because it is far too vast to be included verbatim in this article. END OF NOTE.
#11) Muhammad’s Statements (Koran) Concerning Judgment
(Koran 35:6 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Yusuf Ali) “Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents, that they may become Companions of the Blazing Fire.” (Koran 35:7- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Those who disbelieve, theirs will be a severe torment; and those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do good deeds, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise).”
(Koran 37:19-23 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (V.19) “It will be a single Zajrah [shout (i.e. the second blowing of the Trumpet)], and behold, they will be staring! (V.20) They will say: “Woe to us! This is the day of recompense!” (V.21) (It will be said): “This is the Day of Judgment which you used to deny.” (V.22) (It will be said to the angels): “Assemble those who did wrong, together with their companions (from the devils) and what they used to worship." (V.23) “Instead of Allah, and lead them on the way of Flaming Fire (Hell);” NOTE: The chapter goes on if you wish to read it. END OF NOTE.
#12) Muhammad’s Statements (Koran) Concerning Heaven
(Koran 18:107-108- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Verily! Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, shall have the Gardens of Al-Firdaus (the Paradise) for their entertainment. (108) Wherein they shall dwell (forever). No desire will they have to be removed therefrom.”
(Koran 13:23-24 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (23) “Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens), which they shall enter and (also) those who acted righteously from among their fathers, and their wives, and their offspring. And angels shall enter unto them from every gate (saying): (24) “Salamun ‘Alakum (peace be upon you) for that you persevered in patience! Excellent indeed is the final home.”
(Koran 47:15 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “The description of Paradise which the Muttagun (pious – see V. 2:2) have been promised is that in it are rivers of water the taste and smell of it which are not changed; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine delicious to those who drink; and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure) therein for them is every kind of fruit; and forgiveness from their Lord. (Are these) like those who shall dwell forever in the fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels?”
(Koran 56:25-34 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “No Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk) will they hear therein, nor any sinful speech (like backbiting, etc.). (26) But only the saying of: Salam!, Salam! (greetings with peace)! (27) And those on the Right Hand, Who will be those on the Right Hand? (28) (They will be) among thornless lote-trees, (29) Among Talh (banana-trees) with fruits piled one above another, (30) In shade long-extended, (31) By water flowing constantly, (32) And fruit in plenty, (33) Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off, (34) And on couches or thrones raised high."
(Koran 37:41-53- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (41) “For them there will be a known provision (in Paradise). (42) Fruits, and they shall be honored. (43) In the Gardens of delight (Paradise), (44) Facing one another on thrones, (45) Round them will be passed a cup of pure wine; (46) White, delicious to the drinkers, (47) Neither will they have Ghoul (any kind of hurt, abdominal pain, headache, a sin, etc.) from that, nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom.
(48) And with them will be chaste females, restraining their glances (desiring none except their husbands), with wide and beautiful eyes. (49) (Delicate and pure) as if they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved. (50) Then they will turn to one another, mutually questioning. (51) A speaker of them will say; “Verily, I had a companion (in the world), (52) Who used to say: Are you among those who believe (in resurrection after death).”
(Koran 41:31-33- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (31) “We have been your friends in the life of this world and are (so) on the Hereafter. Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask for. (32) “An entertainment from (Allah), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (33) And who is better in speech than he who [says: “My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness),” and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and invites (men) to Allah’s (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: “I am one of the Muslims.”
(Koran 2:82- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “And those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah swt- Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, they are dwellers of Paradise, they will dwell therein forever.”
NOTE: I Spent several hours searching the Koran to see if Allah loved mankind, his creation, first. AND: If the Koran stated Allah would have a personal loving relationship with a Muslim on earth or in paradise/heaven. I found neither but I did find that the only way to obtain Allah’s love is to love Allah first and obey Muhammad’s Koranic writings then Allah will love that person but Allah will not have a personal relationship with the lover, believer, obeyer. In other words; “I’ll do all the Koran’s list of rituals and list of behaviors and Allah will finally love me and owe me paradise/heaven. END OF NOTE.
#13) Muhammad’s Statements (Koran) Concerning Hell
Highlighting Mine: (Koran 35:6- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Surely, Shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing fire.”
(Koran 66:10- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be severe against them, their abode will be Hell, and worst indeed is that destination.”
(Koran 13:25- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “And those who break the Covenant of Allah, after its ratification, and sever that which Allah commanded to be joined (i.e. they sever the bond of kinship and are not good to their relatives), and work mischief in the land, on them is the curse (i.e. they will be far away from Allah’s Mercy); And for them is the unhappy (evil) home (i.e. Hell).”
Covenant of Allah? islam101.com/sociology/conceptLife.htm the article: The Islamic Concept of Life by Abul Ala Maududi, the subtitle Man: Its Nature and Character: “Verily Allah hath bought of the Believers their lives and their properties for the price that theirs shall be Paradise: so they fight in the way of Allah and slay and are slain. It (i.e. the promise of Paradise) is a covenant which is binding on Him in the torah and the Injil and the Qu’ran. And who is more faithful unto his covenant than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph. (al-Tawbah (9:111)" NOTE: The religion of peace? END OF NOTE.
In the above verse the nature of the relationship which comes into existence between man and Allah because of Man (the belief, trust and faith in Allah) is called a ‘bargain’. This means that Man in Allah is not a mere metaphysical concept; it is in the nature of a contract by which man barters his life and his possessions in exchange for the promise of Paradise in the Hereafter. God as it were, purchases a Believer’s life and property and promises, in return, the reward of Paradise in the life after death This concept of a bargain and a covenant has important implications, and needs to be clearly understood.”
(Koran 56:92-95- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (29) “But if he (the dying person) be of the denying (of the Resurrection), the erring (away from the Right Path of Islamic Monotheism), (93) Then for him is entertainment with boiling water. (94) And burning in Hell-fire. (95) Verily, this! This is an absolute Truth with certainty.”
(Koran 2:23-24- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “(23) And if you (Arab pagans, Jews, and Christians) are in doubt concerning that which We have sent down (i.e. the Quran) to our slave (Muhammad Peace be upon him), then produce a Surah (chapter) of the like thereof and call your witnesses (supporters and helpers) besides Allah, if you are truthful. (24) but if you do it not, and you can never do it, then fear the Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for unbelievers.”
(Koran 18:105-106- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (105) “They are those who deny the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of the Meeting with Him (in the Hereafter). So their works are vain, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall not give them any weight. (106) “That shall be their recompense, Hell; because they disbelieved and took My Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and My Messengers by way of jest and mockery.”
(Koran 18:102- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Do then those who disbelieve think they can take My slaves [i.e., the angels, Allah’s Messengers, ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), etc.] as Auliya’ (lords, gods, protectors, etc.) besides Me? Verily, We have prepared Hell as an entertainment for the disbelievers (in the oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism).”
(Koran 4:171 Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “O people of the scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits of your religion, nor say of Allah aught but the truth. The Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah and His Word, (“Be” – and he was) which was bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (Ruh) created by Him; so believe in Allah and His Messengers."
Say not: “Three (trinity)!” Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allah is (the only) One Ilah (God), Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is AllSufficient as a Disposer of affairs.”
(Koran 21:97-101- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) (97) “And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfillment). Then (when mankind is resurrected from their graves), you shall see the eyes of the disbelievers fixedly stare in horror. (They will say): “Woe to us! We were indeed heedless of this; nay, but we were Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc).”
(98) “Certainly You (disbelievers) and that which you are worshipping now besides Allah, are (but) fuel for Hell! (Surely), you will enter it.”
NOTE: (John 14:15-26 esp. V.16, 18, 23 & 26) Jesus not only believed in the trinity but said He is part of the trinity. For effect Mohammad says Jesus is a liar which is sin, Jesus believing in the trinity is sin and all that is punishable by going to hell! END OF NOTE.
(99) “Had these (idols, etc.) been aliha (gods)’ they would not have entered there (Hell), and all of them will abide therein.” (100) “Therein breathing out with deep sighs and roaring will be their portion, and therein they will hear not.” (101) “Verily for those whom the good has preceded from Us, they will be removed far therefrom (Hell) [e.g. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary); ‘Uzair (Ezra), etc.].” NOTE: Yet Mohammad is saying Jesus will go to heaven! END OF NOTE.
Concerning liars: (Koran 3:61- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) “Then whoever disputes with you concerning him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allah, and having no share in Divinity) say: (O Muhammad SAW) “Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and your selves – then we pray and invoke (sincerely) the Curse of Allah upon those who lie.”
(Koran 21:97-101 again from three paragraphs above esp. V.99- Quaranic Arabic Corpus: Mohsin Khan) This is an ABSOLUTELY CONTRADICTORY Koranic chapter and verses from Muhammad because Jesus plainly stated He IS PART OF THE TRINITY. The whole Koran ABSOLUTELY CONDEMNS (polytheism- POLYTHEISTS) and the Koran states those Christians who believe what Jesus said will go to hell YET Muhammad states Jesus will not go to hell but will go to paradise! BUT:
(John 14:8-9) (V.8) “Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.” (V.9) “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father.” Jesus had said He is the Father (God) manifested in the flesh of a man! SEE: (John 1:1-4 and V.14 keywords: And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us then 1John 1:1-7 then 1Tim. 3:16 keywords: God was manifest in the flesh).
(John 14:15-27) (V.16-17) Jesus plainly identifies the Holy Spirit and that the Holy Spirit will live (V.15) within people who love Jesus and keep His commandments. (V.23 keywords: my Father) Jesus says He is the Son of God. And that Jesus and his Father (God) will come and live within individuals through (V.16-17 & 2Cor. 3:17) the previously identified Spirit of truth (Holy Spirit). In these statements Jesus has plainly stated the trinity of God; God the Father, Jesus the Son of God and the Holy Spirit (V.16-17) of comfort and truth! SEE: (Eph. 1:13-14 then Rom. 8:6-17 esp. V.9 keywords: Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of his.).
(John 14:6-7) Jesus even said He is the only way a person can get to God! (V.6) “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Then Jesus again says he is actually God manifested in the flesh! (V.7) “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him and have seen him.”
(Mark 14:60-64) The high priest of the Jews was questioning Jesus (Mark 15:10-15) so they could kill Him (V.61) and the high priest said to Jesus; “Art thou the Christ the Son of the Blessed?” “And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”
The words in the first underlining, I am, is a direct reference (John 8:48-58 esp. V.58 keywords: I am) to when (Gen. 17:1-22) God incarnated into His Jesus form and appeared to Abram, changed his name to Abraham, made His everlasting covenant with Abraham (V.19 & 21) and God said the covenant would be passed on to and be established with Abraham’s legitimate son Isaac.
And again (Ex. 3:14 keywords: I AM) is a direct reference to when God appeared to Moses, identified Himself as I AM and started the process of leading the Jews out of bondage just like (Ex. 33:11) when God incarnated into His Jesus form and spoke to Moses face to face as a man speaks to a friend.
The words in the second underlining, on the right hand of power, is a direct reference (Acts 7:54-60) to how Stephen saw Jesus when Stephen was dying and (Heb. 4:14-16) it is also a direct reference to Jesus’ “throne of grace” where Christians can spiritually come to Jesus in prayer to “obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
The second and third underlining keywords: Son of man and coming in the clouds of heaven is a direct reference to (Dan. 7:1-28 esp. V.13-14 keywords: the Son of man) Daniel’s dream and visions that led to his prophesy of the coming world powers and that Jesus (the Son of man) will triumph and have His everlasting kingdom with His saints which is verified in (Rev. 19:11 thru 21:10).
NOTE: #1) Muhammad goes to great lengths throughout the Koran to say the trinity of God is a lie and those who believe such will go to hell! See the tenth paragraph above this one starting with Concerning liars: According to Muhammad, Allah gave him the Koran and the Koran is Allah’s true word and that true word says liars will go to hell. (John 14:6 keyword: truth) Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me”.
#2) (Matt. 27:43 keywords: for he said & John 14:23-26 esp. V.23 keywords: my Father & we will come unto him and make our abode with him) Jesus also said the trinity of God is real and declared Himself a third part of it (God’s Son). The Koran calls Jesus’ teaching a lie, that Jesus is a liar and all liars will go to hell BUT Mohammad said in the Koran that Jesus is going to paradise/heaven! SO: WHO IS THE LIAR, Mohammad or Jesus? The Koran or the Holy Bible? The unholy spirit (Satan) or the angel Gabriel? END OF NOTE.
