Meaning of Islam

Every religion of the world has been named either after the name of its founder or after the community and nation in which that religion took its birth. For instance, Christianity takes its appellation from the name of its prophet Jesus Christ; Zoroastrians from its founder zoroaster; and Judaism, the religion of the Jews, from the name of the tribe Judah (of the country of judea) wherein it took its birth. Similar is the case with other religions. But not so with Islam. This religion enjoys the unique distinction of having no such association with any particular person or people. The word ‘Islam’ does not confer any such relationship-for it does not belong to any particular person, people, or country. It is neither the product of any human mind nor is it confined to any particular community. It is a universal religion and its objective is to create and cultivate in man the quality and attitude of Islam. Islam, as a matter of fact, is an attributive title. Whosoever possesses this attributive, may he belong to any race, community, country, or clan, is a Muslim. According to the Qur’an (the Holy Book of the Muslims), among every people and in all ages there have been good and righteous people who possessed this attribute of them were and are Muslims.

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?

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…)
