Roger Bolton  from the BBC News Magazine on the BBC website writes this article. Here is an excerpt:

For those who believe the Bible is the inerrant, unaltered word of God, there will be some very uncomfortable questions to answer. It shows there have been thousands of alterations to today’s bible.

The Codex, probably the oldest Bible we have, also has books which are missing from the Authorised Version that most Christians are familiar with today – and it does not have crucial verses relating to the Resurrection.

“When people ask me if the Bible is the word of God I answer ‘which Bible?'”

California Debates

I have had some discussions with some people about the value of debates in inviting people to faith. Debates could be a lot like sports matches. I believe that debates are only useful for the small percentage of any audience who can hear beyond the art of speech and who attend carrying an academic mentality towards religion (as all Muslims should be since Islam focuses on logic throughout the Quran… we can debate that too).

I like the way that the second debate started and I would like to reiterate it here:

“Christians wake up; no body is dying for your sins. You will be accounted for every single deed that you make or will make.”

These 2 debates took place in California between Jalal Abu Al Rub, David Wood and James White.

The topics a are as follows (you can download the audio by clicking at the titles)

1. Is Muhammed (pbuh) a Prophet?

2. Does the bible teach that Jesus (pbuh) is God?

Prove It…

How can we prove that Islam is the best way of life? All religions speak good things: not to rob, not to steal, etc. What is the difference?

I will let the video speak for itself.

You can listen to the aforementioned Quranic verse in Arabic and English (translation of its meaning):

Mohammed in Their Eyes

During Crusade Era, many lies were concocted by the missionary and western writers to discredit the Prophet of Islam, his message and his teachings. This continued until recently when scientific discoveries and freedom of thought changed many people’s perception of things, and it became increasingly difficult for falsehood-mongers to pull wool over peoples’ eyes. The following are some testimonies that some non-Muslim scholars, thinkers and political icons had to give about the Prophet of Islaam.

Larmatine, the French scholar says:

“If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could dare to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. (more…)

Who Wrote the Bible? Historical Background.

The 4 gospels were written by 4 different men. Who were these men? when did they write the new testament? is it a word of God? (I have heard so many say that the bible is a word of God because it says that it is a word of God… this is a logic of the illogical indeed)

Please understand my questions as a search for historical knowledge and not as an attack on any other religions book. I found some answers in this very interesting documentary. Corrections and/or comments are encouraged.

If you do have the time, it is worthwhile watching the whole series.

A New Muslim

A story of a Christian Arab woman who turned to Islam (English) (Arabic)

Here is something to contemplate in regards to the holy Quran being preserved:

If one day we lost all the holy books in the world .. and we asked people to re-write their exact books. There is no body who can rewrite the exact book of the Bible because there are too many versions, and they are still discovering new different scripts till now .. But I can find you more than a million Muslims who rewrite an identical Moshaf which contains the Quran which is preserved till the end of time .. Isn’t that amazing!!

Doesn’t that testify to something as Allah said:

Please visit her website; plenty of interesting information. I think I will be posting from it more inshallah (God willing).

مقتطفات من كتاب “هداية الحيارى في أجوبة اليهود والنصارى” لابن القيم

هل انتشر الاسلام بالسيف؟

قال ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما وغيره الاديان ستة واحد للرحمن وخمسة للشيطان وهذه الاديان الستة مذكورة في آية الفصل في قوله تعالى ان الذين آمنوا والذين هادوا والصابئين والنصارى والمجوس والذين أشركوا ان الله يفصل بينهم يوم القيامة ان الله على كل شيء شهيد ” الحج 17.

فلما بعث الله رسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم استجاب له ولخلفائه بعده اكثر الاديان طوعا واختيارا ولم يكره أحدا قط على الدين وانما كان يقاتل من يحاربه ويقاتله وأما من سالمه وهادنه فلم يقاتله ولم يكرهه على الدخول في دينه امتثالا لامر ربه سبحانه حيث يقول :” لا اكراه في الدين قد تبين الرشد من الغي ” البقرة 256. وهذا نفي في معنى النهي أي لا تكرهوا أحدا على الدين نزلت هذه الآية في رجال من الصحابة كان لهم أولاد قد تهودوا وتنصروا قبل الاسلام فلما جاء الاسلام أسلم الآباء وأرادوا اكراه الاولاد على الدين فنهاهم الله سبحانه عن ذلك حتى يكونوا هم الذين يختارون الدخول في الاسلام

والصحيح ان الآية على عمومها في حق كل (more…)
