Question:
Please confirm that you are the writer of the letter. "A Truth to Know" which is about your phone call to Obama's church.
Answer:
I appreciate your concern. I would like to clarify that I did indeed place the call to Trinity United Church of Christ. With all respect, there are some false emails circulating over the internet but I feel that I can give enough evidence to back up my statements.

Click on the link below for a few of the most important points I have to make on this subject of Obama and his church. You may also view the videos in the multimedia page on this site. Revealing the Truth About Obama Hussien Obama

 
Question:
Gulfport that "Some virus--some disease is spreading all over America. Islam is worse than a cancer and it's spreading all over our country." Are we to understand you to mean that you would like to see Islam eradicated/destroyed?
Answer:
When you said in an interview on WAOY in We are not here to judge or execute anyone, Muslim or not. What I meant in my statement is that Islam is growing fast in America like a virus, not because Muslims are telling the truth about their religion but because they are spreading lies and they are deceiving Americans. The goal of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry is two fold. The first is to expose Islam for what it is, and yes it is worse than a cancer, and this can be shown clearly in the reading of the Qur'an and the Hadith. Secondly, reaching out to the lost Muslim through equipping Christian American as well as when the Lord gives us the opportunity to minister to them personally. The problem is not the Muslim people but Islam the religion, for we are commanded by Christ to love our enemy and hate sin. Therefore we must love Muslim and hate the religion of Islam.

 
Question:
What is the Muslim view on original sin?
Answer:
In Islam there is no connection between original sin and man's sin today. There is also no connection between forgiveness of sin and blood. In Islam forgiveness of sin comes from good works (Qur'an 111:4), fasting, prayer and especially by visiting Mecca, which is the fifth pillar in Islam. The visit to Mecca brings forgiveness of sin, past, present and future. Even though a Muslim may receive forgiveness for their sin there is still no guarantee that they will inter the garden (their heaven). For the Qur'an teaches that all Muslims will enter hell for some time and then Allah will choose whom He wills to enter the garden (Qur'an 3:185). The only guarantee that a Muslim has to enter the the garden and have the enjoyment of eternity with their virgins is when Muslims practice the seventh pillar of Islam, which is the pillar of Jihad. The Qur'an teaches that those who die while performing Jihad are not dead but they are living with their lord receiving their provision. Qur'an 3:169

 
Question:
Hello Usama, I was never a muslim but become a christian at the age of 15 and heard all sort of rumors about muslims that I lost count but I do remember one of them that I heard from someone in my family that if to become a terrorist or freedom fighter (some muslims may call it) or most heard one martyr as most muslims call it states that you cannot drink wine nor have sex with anyone for the rest of your life until you committed some type of attack against non-muslims and must have succeeded in order to get into heaven where you get 70 or so virgins and endless supply of wine. Do you think this rumor is true or false? Since you were once a muslim but now a ex-muslim and a true believer in Christ Jesus I thought that may know this and hoping to receive an answer so that I don`t get confused but know the truth. Thank you and God bless you and your ministry.
Answer:
Hi, Thank you for writing your question. I was never a Muslim but I accepted Jesus as my saviour at the age of 11. The answer to your question is that is a false teaching. In the early verses of the Qur'an Muhammad allowed Muslims to drink and gamble but in later verses he did not allow it. Even though Islam does not allow sex out of marriage but the Qur'an clearly teaches that a man can have such a thing called marriage for fun, which is marriage for a limited amount of time fora limited amount of money (prostitution). If a Jihadist performs jihad and dies in the process he is guaranteed that he will go straight to heaven and receive the 72 virgins or up to 700 virgins depending on what verse you read. You are right about the rivers of wine, honey and milk. Usama

 
Question:
Hello, I just read your letter about Sen. Obama and was wondering about the last statement : 11. His stance on the issue of gay marriage and abortion proves he is not a Christian. I was just thinking that, if in fact he is a follower of the muslim faith, the support of gay rights to marriage and womens rights to choose abortion (though this may be less important to him as Islam doesn't seem to value life as much as other cultures) would go against his religious beleifs as well. Right? I am 18 this year and will be voting for the first time. I would greatly appreciate your explination on the matter previously stated.
Answer:
Hi Sarah, I understand your concern about this question of abortion so I will explain it to you. Remember Muslims want to take over this country and make Islam the only religion. 1. A Muslim will not have have an abortion themselves. 2. Muslims want infidels to have abortions is ok because that will stop the growth of non Muslims. 3. Their support for gay marriage has two underlining reasons. First, the life span of homosexuals is getting shorter shorter. Second, If gays get the right to be married the next step will be for Muslims to have the right to have their four wives, according to their religious law. Do you see the danger? Please, I beg you, make a moral and Godly choice when you vote. Obama has convinced so many that "change" is what is important. He doesn't say what that change will be or what the ramifications do to the country. The Muslims have already put a list of changes that they want Obama to make when he is president. (You can see these on my website on the frequently asked questions page.) You should also watch my videos about Obama on the multimedia page.

 
Question:
I saw your presentation today and beleive you are the most important speaker in the christian world today. A nearby community called Carbondale has a large community of "sufis." My ex-husband is involved and is attempting to involve my teen-age children. It is very difficult to get accurate information on sufism and they hide from the media... hide that they actively recruit at the university and hide that they own many local businesses. Please provide me with information on sufism and its' relationship to islam. I believe sufism to be a dangerous cult affecting hundreds of people in the community. I need to have an understanding of what it truly is and how to protect my children and provide them with the truth. Thank you for your commitment to the truth and to the Lord and for your courage. God bless Tracy
Answer:
Thank you for your question. I hope that this informaion will help you find your answers. Within the congregation at First Christian is a woman who can answer questions about Islam and the local group that you referred too. Her name is Melissa Henson. Her email is bynx@mchsi.com and her phone number is 922-2970. She has given us permission to give out this information. This group is a cult and there is danger associated with them . The following is some infomation that Melissa has provided for us directly from the group you are referring to: Dayemi Tariqat, a Sufi spiritual community in Carbondale. It is like a cooperative except we get together 4 mornings a week to collectively educate our children and one day a week the children go to Dayempur Farm (Center for Sustainable Living) in Anna to learn more hands-on skills. We have 8 families who are currently participating with 12 children ages 6-13. This program is open to anyone. The parents work together to decide curriculum and what they would like to teach. We do fundraisers to help pay for supplies. Our mission statement: Providing a supportive, respectful environment in which to educate our children collectively so they may develop to their fullest potential spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically and socially. Here is a link to an article about Dayempur Farm and other projects: http://createdestroyenjoy.net/america/strategies.html Please feel free to email us with further questions after you have tried these resources. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sufism that gives generic information about Sufism http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/product?item_no=99568&netp_id=300245&event=ESRCN&item_code=WW&view=covers Excellent book and author on Islam - Easy reading - anything by this author will help your understanding http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/product?item_no=424003&netp_id=273662&event=ESRCN&item_code=WW&view=covers Excellent book and authors on Islam - Easy reading - anything by these authors will also help you Blessings, Usam

 
Question:
Do you have particular recommendations in how to share the gospel with Muslims?
Answer:
The best way to reach out to the Muslim requires the best training.  I am not a very good fisherman.  I tried many times to catch fish in rivers, lakes, and even in the deep sea.  I believe the reason is because I was never trained to catch fish as I grew up.  I was never trained to catch fish in all kinds of waters, so it is with evangelism.  We in America think that Muslim evangelism is like any other evangelism. We knock on their door, meet them in the street, and tell them about sin and about Jesus.  Of course, Muslims have no idea what original sin is for they do not have the true story of Adam and Eve in the Qur'an.  And of course, they will never believe and accept our Jesus, the Son of God, God who became flesh, died, and arose again.  That is nothing but infidelity.  So we're talking two different languages.  Evangelizing Muslims requires special training.  Many try without success.  I know some evangelists who traveled to do mission work in a Muslim world but end up becoming a Muslim and married to Muslim people.  Have you read the Qur'an? Have you studied the Hadith?  Do you know where the problem is in Christian doctrine for Muslims?  For example, when we teach about the doctrine of trinity, I hear some Christians make the doctrine so complicated by saying that it is a mystery, we just believe in it.  Others make it so simple by saying it is like ice, water, and steam.  But have you studied what the Bible and the Qur'an, yes, the Qur'an teaches about the triune God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  It is very important to know Islam so that you can reach out to the Muslim.  I do not believe in a specific way for I personally through the years have used many different ways which causes me to believe that Muslim evangelism requires more training for there are many different types of Muslims.  Not all Muslims are the same.  Therefore, there is not one specific way, and working with Muslims requires lots of training.  I always use the Qur'an first simply because Muslims believe in it, and we can use the Qur’an to point the Muslim to these facts:   One, the Bible is the true word of God, and it cannot be changed for the Qur’an says that no one can change the words of Allah (Qur’an 6:34).  Two, the Qur'an cannot be the word of God for it is full of errors and contradictions. “Do they not consider the Qur’an?  If it was from other than Allah, they would have found in it many inconsistencies.” (Qur’an 4:82)  Three, Mohammad cannot be a prophet, especially when we compare him to Jesus.  Four, the Qur'an teaches that women are disrespected, without value. We know for a fact that women are half of the society.  They are our mother, sisters, wives, and daughters. Five, the Jesus of the Qur'an is not the Jesus of the Bible. As a matter of fact, none of the stories of the Qur’an, which is copied from the Bible, are the same, not Noah, not Abraham, not Joseph, not Moses, etc.  Six, true freedom cannot be found but in the teachings of the Bible for only in and by Christ, the Truth, can we be set free.  Seven, Christianity is the fulfillment of the prophecy of the Old Testament, not the invention of Paul and other early Christian apostles.  Muslim evangelism needs lots of work for it is a hard field.    I remember one time that I was asked to speak in a church and was asked to share with the congregation how to evangelize Muslims.  The pastor of the church gave me 30 minutes to do so.  I stood in the pulpit and asked a few questions.  And the answer from the people of the church was obviously "no."  They never read the Qur'an or the Hadith.  They did not know anything about Islam or the Muslims.  But they needed to learn how to evangelize them in 30 minutes. My answer is obviously "no."  We can't do that.  Jesus spent 3 years with His disciples so that He can equip them.  Working with Muslims is even harder than working with Jews.  There is not a specific recipe to do so but lots of study and lots of prayer.  There are 6 DVD's that are available in our ministry with 14 hours of education, I also translated the Qur'an into a true English translation, and there are many wonderful books written about Islam.  The more you study, the more you learn, the more you are well equipped to reach the Muslims. Some think that the best way to do Muslim evangelism is to travel overseas and be a “real” missionary, but that is not biblical for the scriptures teach that Jesus sent His disciples first to Jerusalem, second to Judea, third to Samaria, and finally to the ends of the world.  Let us begin with our Jerusalem.  Yes, we were commanded to go to the ends of the world, but let us not forget about our Jerusalem first.  Christ has made it even easier for today the whole world is in our Jerusalem.  So let’s study, search, and reach.

 
Question:
Is the english translation of the Qur'an that you offer on CD/DVD?
Answer:
At this time we do not have the Qur'an on CD but it is a project we are thinking of doing. We we do have available we will have on our website and announce it in our newsletter.

 
Question:
What is the Camel Method and what is your view on it?
Answer:
There is no such thing as just one way to reach the Muslims with the gospel.  I am familiar somewhat with the Camel Method. It is like taking a story from the Qur'an and using it to teach the truth of the gospel. I personally can  use this method, but I don't think Christian Americans are equipped to do so. There is so much to learn about Islam before you can reach out or evangelize the Muslims about Jesus.     What I am worried about is that an America Christian will read this book and then try to reach out to the Muslims.  When reaching out to a lost American, you can read a book or take a class on evangelism, but you can not do that with the Muslims for evangelizing them is far more complicated and difficult to do.

 
Question:
I have been recently researching the many views of people in our country with regards to the Quran and found this document.  I would like your opinion if you would be so kind. Here is the link to the document I found. http://www.muslimaccess.com/articles/jihad/kill_the_infidels.asp
Answer:
I read the web site link, and I am very familiar with this technique that Muslims use.  They are rewriting the history of Islam with a great level of deception and lies.  They 're reinterpreting the verses of the Qur'an and ignoring the fact that it is already interpreted by their own scholars and it has been practiced exactly as it is interpreted by their scholars by Mohammed and Muslims for the last 1400 years.  Unless this gentleman does not know Arabic, he is a big fat liar.  He built his interpretation on Muslim English translations of the Qur'an, not the Arabic Qur'an.  If he had read my English translation which is the first true English translation or the Arabic Qur'an, he would have discovered that the word infidel (kafer) is all over the Qur'an.  He used soft early Mecce abrogated (erased or deleted) verses, then he reinterpreted Qur'an 9:5 with very slick deceptive words. I love what scholar Al Tabary said in his interpretation of Qur'an 2:109, and I quote, >Any verse in the Qur'an that does not include killing is an abrogated verse.<

 
Question:
Is >Allah< really the pagan moon god that was worshipped in Mecca during Muhammad's time and that when he took over the city he cleared all of the idols except this one from the Kabba? Do the crescent moon and star on the Islamic flag represent this pagan moon god and does the star represent Muhammad?
Answer:
It is my heart's desire to reach the Muslims and inform Americans about Islam.  Here are the answers to your questions. Your two questions are one in the same.      I personally believe that Allah is not the moon god, and Mohammed did not invent the word "Allah." The crescent moon is the beginning of every month for the Arabs use a lunar calendar, not a solar calendar, and that is how they know the beginning and ending month of Ramadan.  I also believe that the Allah of Mohammed is Satan for he is the lord of the world, Qur'an 1:1 when compared to the Bible, 2 Cor. 4:4.  He is also known as the read Quran 3:54 and 8:30.  He also read Qur'an 35:8.  He also desires to fill hell with people.  Have you read the Qruan? If not, you need to get our true English translation from thestraightway.org website, then you will know that the Allah of the Quran is Satan, not a moon god.  I know that some people teach that Allah is the moon god, but I don't believe that.

 
Question:
Would the muslim in this article more than likely been lying to the congregation or do they actually have altered versions of the Quran? link to article: http://www.kentucky.com/2010/09/15/1435398/tom-eblen-tiny-woodford-county.html?storylink=addthis
Answer:
The verses quoted in the article you read are from the Quran but they are early verses which is abrogated by verse 9:5. What they don't tell you is that in the Quran Christians are not innocent, but they are infidels. Read Quran 5:72 - 73. Which teaches, That all those who believe that Jesus is God are infidels and all who believe in trinity are infidels.

 
Question:
On Worldview with Brandon House, I seem to recall you talking about Muslims infiltrating Christian Churches for the purpose of the men marrying the women and luring Christians into Islam. Can you provide the names of some churches where this has happened?  Or is this a new strategy by the Muslims?  What proof is there that this will happen?
Answer:
Sadly, today there are so many liberal churches, especially ones that are opening their church doors to do interfaith denominational work (when Muslims and Christians and others hold hands and sing Kum-Ba-Ya).  Muslims will do anything to get involved in churches - fighting abortion, drugs, additions, etc.  Liberal churches are helping to expand Islam through these Muslim  without knowing that this is one of the ways that Muslims infiltrate churches.

 
Question:
Are women allowed to worship in Islam? 
Answer:
Yes women are allowed to pray in Islam.  Hadith, Tirmzi page 300 stated that   Also in Islam a woman cannot fast or pray during her period for she is unclean during this time that is why Mohammed asked them to perform more prayer, so Allah will remove them from hell. Do the muslems think we do not have souls? Quran 2:282  …So if the debtor was mentally deficient or weak or cannot dictate, so let his friend dictate with fairness and call two witnesses from your men; so if there were not two men, so one man and two women of those among whom you are pleased for witnesses so that if one of them should make an error, the other may cause her to remember. And she will inherit half of that of a man, Quran 4:11. As to why male and female do not pray together, because the Qur'an teach that women are unclean and dirtier than dirt.  Quran 4:43:  O you who have believed, do not come near the prayer while you are drunk until you know what you are saying, nor after sexual orgasm except that you are merely passing by, until you wash. And if you were sick or traveling or one of you has relieved himself or you have touched the women, so you did not find water, then rub your face and your hands with good dirt. Surely Allah was pardoning, forgiving. That is why the Hadith teaches that there must be a barrier between male and female in pray as it is written:  In Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Number 1032 also Al-Bukhari, the Book of Prayer: 514 Abd Allah ibn al-Samit said: Abu Dharr said: The Messenger of Allah  said:   I said: He replied:  Do they believe we are hell bound no matter what we do?  No, may dear Sue Merriner, not all woman will be in hell.  But most of them.  Roughly around 99%. For the Hadith by Bukhari 5251, Mohammed said, And Kanzu al-'ummal, 22:10, That is talking about Muslim women.  So as for you, the chance for you to get to Heaven is zero.  But the good news is Galatians 3:28, There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

 
Question:
Can you tell me how your translation of the Koran differs from other English versions?   I saw an online interview with a Muslim who said each Arabic word can have 5-6 different meanings so it's impossible for English-speakers to get an accurate understanding. He was trying to say that verses that say really mean something else.
Answer:
First of all the statement that the Arabic words have 5-6 different meanings is false. There is an English word for every Arabic word. The difference in our translation is that I used the true meaning of the word not a fabrication or interpretation of the word. As an example, the word have sex in Arabic  has been translated in the other Qurans as marriage but ours says, to have sex. We also depend on the Muslim scholar's interpretations of the words so therefore we cannot go wrong in the meaning of the word in our translation. We can back up what we have translated by what the excepted Arabic scholar's say.

 
Question:
What is your stand on burning Qurans?
Answer:
Many of you are asking me about the Quran burning. I am not in agreement with the burning because of what the outcome would bring. My idea is and always will be that people need to read the Qur'an to know what it teaches and then speak the truth. The book is evil because of what is taught in it and you can't stop that by burning it. Being educated about the enemy is the way to defeat it. Know my heart, you can hate Islam but you must love the Muslims. Don't get the two confused, loving someone does not mean you condone the evil they believe in and call it a loving peaceful religion when their book teaches the opposite.

 
Question:
What is the Sharia Law and how does it affect non-Muslims?
Answer:
Sharia is the Arabic word which means law. Islamic Sharia or Islamic law is the practice of the teaching of the Quran, I know some moderate Muslims, which I don't believe exist, but on paper, I call them deceivers, and some dumb liberals will defend Islam by saying that, . All this has nothing to do with Islam but that is a lie from hell, for the Qur'an teaches to cut the hand on the thief as it is written in Quran 5:38 And the male thief and the female thief, so cut off their hands (as) reward of what they earned as a punishment from Allah, and Allah is dear, wise. And the Qur'an also teaches Muslim to fight against all non-Muslims as Allah said in Quran 8:65 O you prophet, Provoke the believers to engage in war... Notice Allah commands Mohammed to provoke believers not extremest.  As for jihad is throughout the Quran. Giving the jizya (Tribute tax) is in Quran 9:29.     Have you read our true English translation for the Quran? If not please visit our website so you can obtain a copy. The problem in America is that we have not yet studied the Quran so we know what Islam is really about.

 
Question:
The name "allah", I've heard simply means The god or that Allah was a pre-Islamic Moon god as well as a few other theories. Do you know for sure which is accurate or are both arguments true? Thanks so much and keep up the great work you are doing!
Answer:
The word (Allah) is not an Arabic word.  It came from he hebrew word "Elohem."  In the Arabic language, we use this word (Allah) for God as you see throughout my Arabic Bible.  I do not believe in the moon god theory.  Mohammed did not invent this word for his father was named (the servant of Allah) before Mohammed was born.  When Mohammed spoke of Allah throughout the Quran, he meant the god of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, the Creator of heaven and earth.    The question we must ask is  - is the god of Islam the same god as the God of Christianity?  The answer is absolutely not.  For the god of Mohammed is the Satan of the Bible.  We can see this clearly in Quran 1:1 which indicates that Muslims worship the god of this world who is Satan (See 2 Corinthians 4:4) who is known as the best deceiver (See verses 3:54 and 8:30) and who leads people astray (See verse 35:8).

 
Question:
Where in the Koran does it state that one born to a Muslim father is a Muslim? Thanks!
Answer:
In Quran chapter 18:74-80, 74So they went on until they met a young man, so he killed him. So he said, Have you killed a pure soul, without a soul? Indeed, you have done a horrible thing! 75He said, Did I not tell you that you would not have patience with me? 76He said, If I ask you about anything after this, so do not accompany me. Indeed, you have received an excuse from me. ...78He said, (This is the parting between you and me. But I will first tell you the interpretation of that with which you could not be patient. ...  80And as to the young man, so his parents were believers so we feared lest he should trouble them by rebellion and infidelity. 81So we desired that their lord might exchange in his place, better than he was in virtue and closer in mercy.   The interpretation of Muslim scholars is that this young man, if he would live longer, he would for sure become an infidel, meaning leaving Islam.  That's why Allah gave this prophet the wisdom to kill him, for any who are born to a Muslim family, if they leave Isalm, they must be put to death.  This can also be found in the Qur’an 6 :151 …And do not kill the soul which Allah forbids except with a just cause…                                see also 17:33, 25:68.   Also in the Hadith, Bukhari, volume 9, #17 Mohammed said, (The blood of a Muslim cannot be shed except in three cases for murder, adultery,  and the one who becomes an Apostate (leaves) from Islam ) In Saheeh Muslim book #33, Hadith #6426, Mohamed said that every child is born Muslim.  Some will be indoctrinated by their family to other religions, but they must revert to Islam.

 
Question:
Is it true that Islamic Law says that once a territory has been conquered by Islamic forces, that territory can never be allowed to be returned to non Islamic ownership ? This is important for Americans to know regarding the Palestinian (and USA backed) proposal to establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank of Israel - as a "solution" for a plan of "peaceful co-existence of Palestinians & Jews" That solution seems to be just a ploy and a temporary trick to make many countries agree to force Israel to accept co-habitation with a new Palestinian nation - which has no intention of allowing Israel to have any sort of peace once the new Palestinian state is established. Could you comment and tell me what you know of Sharia law or Islamic law regarding this, and regarding the Hamas Mission Statement that follows here ?
Answer:
Yes, that is true.  Islamic law states when a land is conquered by Muslims, it is Muslim land forever. The article written by Hamas is true.   The Scripture says that God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Isreal.  So guess what is going to happen to America?

 
Question:
If the world is ruled by Satan, then are all the nations of the world provinces in Satan's empire? Is Israel an exception? Is the US an exception? Are there any other exceptions?
Answer:
There is no exception of the kingdoms or governments on earth.  The entire world belongs to Satan.  The world is the kingdom of Satan.  In 2 Corinthians 4:4 the Bible clearly teaches that Satan is the god and the lord of this world. The church, however, does not belong to this world.  The world does not love the church because the church is the kingdom of Jesus.  Jesus will rule with the church forever.

 
Question:
Do you believe the birth certificate that shows President Obaama was born in Hawaii,is his real true Birth certificate? If not, how can one find the truth?
Answer:
If Obama had ever been issued a real birth certificate, he would lose crediblity.  There must be something unusal about his certicifacte for what would be the point of spending over 2 million dollars if there was not something fishy about it to hide such a certificat all this time?  That would make him disqualified to be elected to any political office because that would make him mentally sick to spend that much money to hide it. There is no reason for him to not have one, so what is the mystery about his.

 
Question:
I am a language student, and I do a lot of things on-line.  I try to help others learn English as well as learn their language.  In doing this, I meet a large number of people.  One of the people I met was a young girl, born in Vienna, yet 100% Karachay-Balkar.  She is a Muslim, and when I tried to talk to her about the Gospel, she decided that she wanted no more contact with me.  I know that all the arguments 7 wise men can render could never persuade her if she is not willing to listen, however, I also have a responsibility to be the best, sharpest tool I can be for my Lord's use.  Can you advise me of good resources to use so that I may better evangelize Muslims should I encounter one again?
Answer:
Witnessing to Muslims is a great challenge.  The more you know about Islam, the better you are equipped to do so.  Most likely unsecure Mulims will not carry on a conversation when you start sharing your faith.  That's when you need to change your way of sharing the gospel.   Please go to our web site at www.thestraightway.org and go to the FAQ section and look for this question, "Do you have particular recommendations in how to share the gospel with Muslims?" You will find the answers to some of your questions there.

 
Question:
I am fighting a Muslim Mosque being built in Richmond, VA. I say me, because other are afraid to get involved. It will be right by a public grade school. Do you have a short fact sheet that I can give out to the people in the area. I went toe to toe with the Iman in a parking lot (no one else around) The lies are unbelievable!!!! I had a Quran and he said it was a foreign copy...they aren't like this in America. Had I not been grounded in my faith he would have been believable. Please help me...
Answer:
“More UU Temples in America!” Liberals in the West have been speaking loudly the last two years about freedom of religion.  If you ask why, you will discover that it is not because they would like churches in America to prosper or for freedom of Christianity to spread abroad during our lifetime.  It is because they simply would love to see more UU temples be built all over our land, especially one at Ground Zero in New York City.  Why build UU temples in America?  Since we have freedom of religion in America, people have the freedom to build buildings to practice their religions in our country. Let me give you a scenario.   I would love to build a UU temple, so I will go to your city hall to get a permit to build the first UU temple in your city.  I will be required to fill out an application.  In it I will describe what the UU religion is.  So I will fill in the application with references from our holy books.  I will say that in our holy book in Chapter 2:216, “War is decreed to you, and it is hated by you. And perhaps you may hate something and it is good for you, and perhaps you love something and it is evil for you.  And UU god knows, and you do not know.”  UU god teaches us to engage in war with all people, even if we hate to do so.  The prophet of our religion commands us to fight people until they worship our UU god alone as he taught in Bu:V4B53N386, "Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship the UU god alone or pay us the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: ‘Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.'"  Our prophet also said in Mu:C9B1N31, "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but UU god, and believe in me (that) I am the Messenger and in all that I have brought." Our scholars gave us the true understanding of who we are and what we stand for as we read in their teachings in TaIX:69, "UU people are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are UU god's helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in the UU god. He who believes in the UU god and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of the UU god. Killing him is a small matter to us."  We have a mission to torment all the people who live in America.  Our god commands us to do so in our holy book when he said to us in Chapter 9:14, “Engage in war with them. The UU god will torment them by your hands and put them to shame and give you victory over them and heal the chest of a believing people.”  For we were provoked by our prophet as true believers to do so as it is written in our holy book in Chapter 8:65,  “O you prophet, provoke the believers to engage in war. If there will be twenty patient (steadfast in fighting) ones of you, they will have victory over two hundred…” If we the UU people fill this application to build our temple out truthfully, we will never build one UU temple in America.  Therefore, we will lie on the application which is lawful in our religion.  In it we will use early verses from our holy book.  We know and  believe that these verses are abrogated (cancelled or erased), but that is exactly what our great prophet did years ago.  He began peacefully; but then when he became powerful and strong, he used the final verses of our holy book.  In the next few years, since we are not the majority in the land now, we will be peaceful as we will use verses from our book which our prophet used when he was outnumbered in the land, such as in the following verses.  Chapter 47:35, “So do not be weak and do not call for peace when you have the upper hand. And UU god is with you, and he will not leave from you [for] your work.”  Chapter 2:256, “No compulsion in religion. Indeed, the right way is made distinct from the error…”  We know that these are abrogated verses by new and final verses of our holy book as in the Verse of the Sword,  Chapter 9:5, “So when the forbidden months are passed, so kill the polytheists wherever you find them, and take them [as captives], and besiege them, and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush, so if they repent (convert to the UU religion) and perform the prayer and give the legal alms, so leave their way free. Surely UU god is forgiving, merciful.”  In simple words, this means that when we become 5-6% of the population in America, we will give your children one of the three following options: we will kill them, take them as slaves, or force them into our religion.  If it happens that you are a Christian and believe that Jesus is God, we call you an infidel as it is written in our holy book in Chapter  5:72,  “’Infidels indeed are those who said, ‘Surely God is the Christ, son of Mary."’  Also, if you believe in what you call the Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - we will judge you for being an infidel as it is written in our holy book in Chapter 5:73, “’Infidels indeed are those who said, ‘Surely God is the third of three."’ The punishment of being a Christian according to our religion is death by decapitation with one strike on the neck with a sword.  Our holy book teaches in Chapter 47:4, “So when you meet those who became infidels, so strike the necks (decapitate) until you have made a great slaughter among them…”     We will fight with our money and our swords for the sake of our god as our holy book teaches in Chapter 9:41, “March forth lightly or heavily, and perform holy war with your money and your lives for the sake of UU god. This is best for you, if you were knowing.”  We will be very harsh with you, and we know for sure that you will spend eternity in hell as our holy book teaches us in Chapter 9:73, “O you prophet, perform holy war against the infidels and the hypocrites, and be harsh with them. And their abode will be hell, and evil is the destination.”  We will cast terror into your hearts, and we will kill some of you and take some of you as slaves.  We will inherit your land, homes, and money as our holy book teaches in Chapter 33:26-27, “26 And he brought down the people of the book (Jews& Christians) who backed them from their strong places and cast terror into their hearts. A group of them you are killing, and a group of them you are taking captive. 27And he made you to inherit their land and their homes and their money and a land which you had never set foot on. And UU god was mighty over all things.”  We do this because we want our god to love us in 61:4, “Surely the UU god loves those who engage in war in ranks for his sake, as if they were a solid wall.” Right now we can lie to you and tell you that we are your friends because we need to protect ourselves from you because that is the only way that we can build our temple in your land as it is written in our holy book in Chapter  3:28, “Believers do not take infidels for friends, rather than the believers. Whoever does this so he has nothing to do with the UU god, but that you should guard yourself from them your fear of him [UU god].  And the UU god himself warns you, and to the UU god is the return.”  However, after we take over your land, we will practice the words of our god in Chapter 5:51, “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as friends. They are friends to one another. And whoever among you takes them as friends, so surely he is of them. Surely UU god does not guide the unjust people.”  We will fight you forever until you worship with us in our religion, and the UU religion will be completely to our god, meaning that every person on earth will belong to the UU religion as it is written in our holy book.  If you are stubborn and do not accept the UU religion peacefully, our religion will spread by strength and by the sword for you will have no choice but to submit to the new reality.  In the future, if you choose not to continue in our religion or if you choose to leave our religion, this is what we will do to you.  Narrated Ab:  UU god's Messenger said, "The blood of a UU person…cannot be shed except in three cases… (for murder), (adultery), and the one who reverts from UU religion (Apostate) and leaves the UU religion."  Since you are ignorant of our religion,  I have shared with you these few verses  even though there are over three hundreds verses in our holy book that teach the same language as mentioned above.  We will just lie to you and tell you that we are a loving, peaceful religion. Thank you for giving me the permit to build another UU temple, you ignorant people. Notice that the UU religion is Islam, the UU god is Allah, the UU prophet is Mohammed, the UU people are Muslims, and the UU holy book is the Qur’an.  Also, Bu is Bukhari, Mu is Muslim, Ta is Tabari, and Narrated AB is Narrated Abdullah.

Question:
Zudhi Jasser is self-described as a "devout" (his word) Muslim whose actions and words appear to indicate he is a true "moderate" Muslim. I don't understand how he can be "devout" at the same time he disavows or reinterprets hundreds of verses of the Qur'an and Hadith into something that the great majority of Muslim leaders around the world do not teach. Is he practicing a form of taqiyya? Is he being more patient than other Muslims in portraying "true Islam" as mild and benign until Islam has greater influence? Or is he a sincere but lone voice in the Islamic wilderness trying to make Islam into something it is not? His words describing himself as a "devout" Muslim don't ring true. A Christian who called himself a "devout" Christian would certainly not disavow major portions of the Bible or interpret them differently than the majority teachers of orthodoxy. There are certainly devout Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and Christian Scientists, but they certainly are not orthodox, and most orthodox Christians do not believe they are Christian. What kind of Islam is Jasser devout about?
Answer:
Let me begin by stating that  there is no moderate Muslim for there is no moderate Islam.  Your email is not a confusion, and the answers are in your own writing in your email. For all the points that you mentioned are true.  Zudhi Jasser is a very smooth, sneaky, deceptive Muslim.  He practices taqiyya which is Qur'an 3:28, "Believers do not take infidels for friends, rather than the believers. Whoever does this so he has nothing to do with Allah, but that you should guard yourself from them your fear of him [Allah]." No Muslims ever take Americans for friends for if they do so, they lose their relationship with Allah.  As it is also written in Qur'an 5:51 when Allah commanded the Muslims not to take the Jews and Christians as friends.  But if the Mulsims are the majority in the land, Allah gave them permission to live in hypocracy, that is to protect themselves, and they will not be expelled from the land, and that is what we call taqiyya.  He will continue to do so until Muslims have the upper hand for the Qur'an clearly teaches in Qur'an 47:35 when Allah said, "So do not be weak and do not call for peace when you have the upper hand..." The problem in the West which the western world faces is when those who call themselves moderate Mulsims have the upper hand, then the fuzzy wuzzy feeling with our dear Muslim friends like Zudhi Jasser will end, and then it will too late.

 
Question:
I have a question about a particular verse in the Koran.  There is a source that quotes Quran (9:30) as........ "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away. In the Quran that you sent me the words "may Allah destroy them" are the following (instead):       "Allah engages in war with them" I am not sure what version the "may Allah destroy them" comes from, but it is quite a different expression than "Allah engages in war with them" Could you please verify that verse because it makes a big difference which translation is more accurate. If Muhammed said "May Allah destroy them" that is quite a show of his character in that one verse.
Answer:
My translation is an accurate translation of the Arabic.  The word in arabic is 'katalhom allah' the true translation is, Allah engages in war with them. The other translations are interpretations to the meaning.

 
Question:
What is Shariah Finance?
Answer:
Here is a link that will give you some good information. http://www.shariahfinancewatch.org/blog/

 
Question:
I googled Usama Dakdok, and this is one of the links I found:    http://thefactsaboutislam.blogspot.com/2010/10/usama-dakdok-scandal.html   The media can put a negative spin even on us "good guys" (e.g. anti-choice zealots), but it can't be denied that Usama was FAR less than gracious in the clip.
Answer:
I understand your concern, and believe me, if you look on the internet long enough you will find "hateful" videos of many well-known Christian teachers such as Rick Warren, Franklin Graham, and so on. Those who are uncomfortable with strong speech about the soul-damning darkness of Islam should read their own Bible. Jesus used "hateful" speech when He called the false-teachers of His day a "brood of vipers", "whitewashed tombs" and He ran them out of the temple with leather whips! If these videos were on youtube showing Jesus saying and doing this, what do you think the world's reaction would be? Any different than what you have read about me? The real problem is that we are unaware about the lies of Islam, and if we realized that over a billion people are lost and without Christ due to it's darkness, we would worry less perhaps about "strong" language. Paul employed "strong" language, as well as Moses. The desire of our ministry is to help expose the lies of the enemy who is seeking to keep people away from the truth of salvation in Christ. I have lived in a Muslim nation, studied in Muslim schools, witnessed firsthand the oppression of all those who will not bow the knee to "Allah." We need to take a strong stand for the truth of the gospel, and as Paul said: "reproving the works of darkness".  I understand your concern, and I am passionate as I teach and preach, as Jesus did as well (not that I am comparing myself to our Savior), and perhaps it comes off as hateful, but my heart is for the truth and for those who are trapped in this false-faith.  The Qur'an teaches that Jesus did NOT die on a cross for our sins, it says that He is NOT the Son of God. We cannot allow "moderate" voices in Islam to claim that Islam believes in the same God as Christianity, and that all faiths are essentially the same. It is not a religion of peace, as is claimed, because chapter 9 of the Qur'an commands for Muslims to kill unbelievers many times. Most in the West are unaware of these 3 central facts. I appreciate your concern, but please do not consider a passionate appeal and style as equivocating hate or intolerance. My prayer is that the truth of our Savior may shine into their hearts.

 
Question:
I have been listening to Usama on the VCY network almost every day and am learning a lot.  It says on the program that even Muhammad didn’t know if he was going to heaven.  Is there a verse in the Koran that states that?  Can you let me know the verse?
Answer:
You can find this in the Qur’an, chapter 19:71, 72 (Everyone burns in hell for a while, and only the fearer of Allah will ever get out. See also verse 3:185. This contradicts the Bible. See Matthew 25:46 and Luke 16:26.) This is a statement by Usama in his translation, The Qenerous Qur’an, and is not part of the Qur’an. 19:71, 72 71And there is none of you who will not go down into it. This was an unavoidable decree of your lord. 72Then we will deliver those who fear and warn the unjust in it on their knees. (Before entering the garden, Muslims will be in hell for a time.) This is a statement by Usama in his translation, The Qenerous Qur’an, and is not part of the Qur’an. 3:185 185 Every soul tastes the death, and surely you will only receive your wages on the day of resurrection. So whoever is removed from the fire and enters the garden, so indeed he becomes triumphant. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of the proud? This link gives another explanation. http://answering-islam.org/Quran/Contra/qi029.html

 
Question:
I just finished listening to your interview with Dr. Stan on Radio Liberty. I can tell by your tone that you are a very passionate brother in Christ. A friend of mine has a son who is taking a college class on Islam. We had a chat at a party recently and he told me that the Qu’ran is not a book that promotes violence. I’d like to send him some info based on your interview. Would you be so kind as to give me a list of the chapters and verses you mentioned so that I can send them to him and give him a link to an online English version of the Qu’ran so he can verify this himself. I don’t need the text, just the chapter and verse notations.
Answer:
Here are some verses: there is not one verse in the Qu'ran that teaches love and peace. But there are some soft verses, early Macci abrograted verses. But, on the other hand there are close to 350 verses that teach nothing but hate. As the great scholar Altabrie, for his interpretation to Qu'ran 2:109. For the verse 109Many of the people of the book desire to turn you back to infidelity after you have believed, out of envy from themselves, after the truth has been shown to them. So pardon and forgive them until Allah will come in with his command. Surely Allah has might over all things. "All verses does not teach killing is early abrogated verses." Therefore we know for sure there is not one verse in the Qu'ran that teaches love or peace. Qur'an 2:216 War is decreed to you, and it is hated by you. And perhaps you may hate something and it is good for you, and perhaps you love something and it is evil for you. And Allah knows, and you do not know. Qur'an 9:14 Engage in war with them. Allah will torment them by your hands and put them to shame and give you victory over them and heal the chest of a believing people. Qur'an 9:38 O you who have believed, what is the matter with you? When it is said to you, "March forth (performing jihad) for the sake of Allah," you cling heavily to the earth. Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the hereafter? So what is the enjoyment of the life of this world but a little [compared] to the life of the hereafter? Qur'an 8:65 O you prophet, provoke the believers to engage in war. If there will be twenty patient (steadfast in fighting) ones of you, they will have victory over two hundred… Qur'an 9:5 So when the forbidden months are passed, so kill the polytheists wherever you find them, and take them [as captives], and besiege them, and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush, so if they repent (convert to Islam) and perform the prayer and give the legal alms, so leave their way free. Surely Allah is forgiving, merciful. Qur'an 47:4 So when you meet those who became infidels, so strike the necks (decapitate) until you have made a great slaughter among them… Qur'an 9:41 March forth lightly or heavily, and perform jihad (holy war) with your money and your lives for the sake of Allah. This is best for you, if you were knowing. Qur'an 9:73 O you prophet, perform jihad (holy war) against the infidels and the hypocrites, and be harsh with them. And their abode will be hell, and evil is the destination. Qur'an 9:29 Engage in war with those who do not believe in Allah and in the last day. And do not forbid what Allah and his messenger forbid, and do not believe in the religion of the truth (Islam) among those who have been given the book (Jews& Christians) until they pay the jizya (tribute) out of hand and they are subdued. Qur'an 33:26 And he brought down the people of the book (Jews& Christians) who backed them from their strong places and cast terror into their hearts. A group of them you are killing, and a group of them you are taking captive. Qur'an 33:27 And he made you to inherit their land and their homes and their money and a land which you had never set foot on. And Allah was mighty over all things. Qur'an 61:4 Surely Allah loves those who engage in war in ranks for his sake, as if they were a solid wall. Qur'an 5:51 O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Nasara (Christians) as friends. They are friends to one another. And whoever among you takes them as friends, so surely he is of them. Surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. Qur'an 8:39 And engage in war with them until there will not be sedition and the religion (Islam) will be completely to Allah. So, if they cease, so surely Allah sees what they do. Muslim:C9B1N31 "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah, and believe in me (that) I am the Messenger and in all that I have brought." Bukhari:V4B53N386 "Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah alone or pay us the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: ‘Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.'" Tabari IX:69 "Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah's helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us."

 
Question:
Usama, You say you grew up as a Christian. If so, why is your name Usama? Usama is a name traditionally used by Muslims, not Christians.
Answer:
There are 28 names for "the Lion" in the Arabic language. Usama is the first name of the 28 names. It is a very strong Arab name that Christians, Jews, and Muslims use. I was named by my family because of a wonderful neighbor who had chosen this name for me. For almost 25 years, I did not understand why God chose such a name for me, but now I know why. It is because someone like you would question my name and ask why. And then the Lord opens a door for me to share Christ with them after sharing the truth about Islam. There are thousands of Americans who have asked me the same question, thinking perhaps I am a Muslim. Now just because of my name they know the truth about Islam and the love of Christ.

 
Question:
I have a Muslim friend I am sharing with. I asked him about Eide, and it being about the sacrifice of "Ishmael" when it is clearly "Isaac" in the Bible. In reply he wrote the following: Walking down to my lab, I remembered Muslim response would be for your question. Since in the Bible, God says "take your son, your only son, Isaac" for sacrifice. The Issac was not Abraham first son but second. Ishmael was his only son for more than a decade. Thus the conclusion is that it is altered! Now it would be the matter of interpretation of what is the definition of "your only son" according to you. What advice do you have for me to respond to him?
Answer:
If you talk to any Muslim about the test which God gave to Abraham concerning the sacrifice of his son, Muslims immediately will state that the sacrificial son was their father Prophet Ishmael. When you ask why they believe that the sacrificial son was Ishmael and not Isaac, the answer is because the Bible was corrupted and changed. They claim that the Bible originally stated that it was Ishmael who was sacrificed, but the Jews, because of their jealousy of Mohammed, changed the sacrificial person to Isaac. Although all manuscripts, including the Dead Sea Scrolls which were written at least 600 years before Mohammed was born, say it was Isaac not Ishmael. But who is the sacrificial son, even according to the Qur’an and the Hadith? All that we know concerning the sacrificed one comes from the writing of Ibn Kathir (page 182, The Beginning and the End) who stated he knew for sure that the sacrifice was Ishmael. (In the same paragraph he says that Abraham met with Ishmael only three times after he left as an infant with his mother.) The only place in the Qur’an which mentions the sacrificial son comes from 37:99-113 where there is no mention of the name Ishmael but actually mentions Isaac in verses 112-113. In verse 102, the son was walking and talking with Abraham. According to the writing of Ibn Kathir (185) and other Muslim scholars like Al Sohale, the sacrificial son must be Isaac because Ishmael was not with Abraham at the age of "walking and talking," according to Mohammed in the Hadith. Ishmael was living at that time in Mecca with his mother. What was the real reason for Muslims to claim and insist that the sacrificial son was Ishmael? It is because they claim they are the descendants of Ishmael, and they want to tie Mohammed to Abraham through Ishmael. Therefore, Mohammed would be the prophet from whom the blessing will come to the world. Can any Muslim scholar prove this theory by any document, historical or genealogical? What Muslims do not know, like most people, is that the Arabs are not the descendents of Hagar through Ishmael, but they are the descendants of Keturah, as written in Genesis 25:1-6. Now where do the descendants of Keturah live and can we tie them to Arab countries? The Bible states that the children of Keturah lived in the east country. In Job 1:3, the Bible states that Job was living in the land of the east. Also notice that one of the children of Keturah was Shuah, Genesis 25:2, who is obviously related to Job’s friend. How about the name Sheba in Genesis 25:3? That is another name that is tied to the Queen of Sheba, I Kings 10:1-13. She was the queen of the country we know as Yemen today. One can continue through the names of the children and grandchildren of Keturah and can tie them to Arab countries, like the Midianites. However, Ishmael's descendants, the Ishmaelites, lived north between Havilah and Shur, which is between Egypt and Assyria. They had no ties to Mohammed or the Arabs, as we see in Gen. 25:12-18. Because many people believe in something for a long time does not make it true. For example, the whole world believed that the earth was flat. Mohammed believed this, as it is written in the Hadith and the Qur’an, but that did not make it true. It is clearly ISAAC, not as the story is written in the Qur’an where Abraham was speaking to his son concerning a dream. The Bible says that God spoke to Abraham telling him to take his only beloved son Isaac and offer him as a sacrifice. The promise of the inheritance had been given to Sarah and her son, not Hagar and Ishmael. The request of God was specific. Genesis 22:2 states: “Take your son, your only son whom you love Isaac.” God had promised Abraham he would have a son from his wife Sarah, Genesis 17:16. Examine Genesis 22:1-14 for the account concerning the test of Abraham and the true account of the son to be sacrificed. The details of the Genesis account let us know when (Genesis 22:1, "when it came to pass" - the fulfillment of the promise of God concerning Isaac, sending Ishmael away with his mother, and then Isaac alone to be sacrificed - the true test), where (in the land of Moriah, and offer him as a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which God would tell him), how (through the audible voice of God to Abraham, not in a dream, as stated in the Qur’an, when He said to him to take his only son to sacrifice him), who (his only son, Isaac, not his son as it is written in the Qur’an), and why (a test, wherein God proved that Abraham feared and obeyed God. It is for us to fear and obey God. It is also a picture of what would take place within two thousand years, when Jesus would be sacrificed, instead of the sinful human race. God provided the sacrificial ram in Genesis 22:13 to be sacrificed instead of Isaac. God provided His true Lamb, Jesus Christ, to be a sacrifice for our sin.) The Qur’an, the Hadith, and Muslim scholars do not have answers for these questions. Their answers would be simply that Allah knows best. In other words, they did not know. To learn more details you should to get my new book, The Revelation of Error, when it comes out next year. I hope this was a help to you.

 
Question:
I have another two questions for Usama about certain koran verses. 2: 221 which says "invite them to the fire", does this mean that the polytheists are to be burned? I regret I do not understand if this is a command to kill by fire, perhaps you can shed some light on this. Then 2: 229 which talks about the "limits of allah". I am asking for help to understand what the supposed limits of allah are.
Answer:
Qur'an 2:221 refers to Muslims who marry polytheists (unbelievers), be influenced by them, become an infidel like them (the unbelievers), and then will end up in hell. Qur'an 2:229 the limits of Allah are the rules which Allah gives. The rule in this situation here is that a man can only divorce his wife three times, and he can remarry her after the first two divorces within the limit of three months. If the divorce period goes over three months, (like 3 months and a day), he cannot remarry her. If he divorces her the third time, he cannot remarry her until she marries a new husband and has sex with that husband. If the new husband divorceses her, then she can be remarried to her first husband. That is the opposite of what the Bible teaches in Deut. 24:1-4 "When a man hath taken a wife…and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand…she may go and be another man's wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement…or if the latter husband die…Her former husband…may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD… "

 
Question:
Please explain briefly the meaning of jihad I have attended worldview weekend and have many of your dvds and own a copy of the generous quran.
Answer:
Jihad can be understood simply by reading the verses by Allah in the Quran.  There are 30 verses in the Quran where the word jihad is mentioned, and every one of these verses indicate to go out to fight and kill non-Muslims or to invade non-Muslim land; therefore, jihad is a holy war to spread Islam and get rid of other religions, faiths, and cults.

 
Question:
As I was talking to a sister and she said that Abraham was a pagan before he was called by God. Is this true? I can't seem to find anything in the bible saying that he was pagan. Please help me understand this.
Answer:
Abraham was born in Ur of the Chaldeans, but there is nothing in the Bible that says he worshiped idols.  That is from a Quranic teaching. The story in the Qur'an is full of nonsense  - such as Abraham breaking the idols and as a consequence was thrown in the fire, and the long conversation between his father and Abraham did not happen.  When we read the Bible, we see that none of this fabrication is true.

 
Question:
Do Muslims in Islam worship God or Satan?
Answer:
Muslims worship Satan by the name of Allah. For example, in Quran 1:1, it states that Allah is the god of the worlds.  The Bible clearly teaches in 2 Cor. 4:4 that the god of the world is Satan.  In Quran 3:54 and 8:30, Allah is known as the best deceiver.  The Bible clearly teaches that the deceiver is Satan.  Quran 35:8 says that Allah leads people astray which is a description of Satan in the Bible.  Allah desires to fill hell with humans, but the Bible teaches that God desires that not one person should perish.

 
Question:
Who is the we in verses such as 7:40 and 42, 7:160 and 62? What does verse 9:36 mean?
Answer:
Verse 9:36 refers to the lunar year, that is 12 months of 28 days or so.  It begins with the start of the new moon and ends with the new moon.  Four of these 12 months are called the forbidden months. These are the months where Arabs used to set aside where no one could kill, even if the person lost a father or a son on the day before the beginning of these four months.  They would not take revenge during these months. After Islam took over the Arabs, this beautiful custom was stopped. Now Muslims kill all year long.

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Quran 9:111. I read english and russian translations and many of them have a big differences in meaning. This verse seem describing the exact bargain with the Satan, as we know it. Allah buying your soul for paradise. Like Satan (buying) your soul for eternal life. What exactly does this verse say in accurate translation? What known scholars say about the meaning? I saw very little attention in the web and in the media to this verse, though it seems absolutely revealing the core of this faith. Considering that Chapter 9 is Medina s one of the latest chapters. Thank you!
Answer:
In Quran 9:111 the true translation is: Surely Allah has purchased from the believers their persons and their money so that they may have the garden. They will engage in war for the sake of Allah. So they will kill, and they will be killed; a promise of this is true in the Torah and in the Gospel and in the Qur'an. And who is    more faithful to his covenant than Allah? So receive the good news in your pledge which you have pledged with, and this is the great triumph.   In simple words, Muslims are slaves to Allah. He owns them and everything they have.  Allah will exchange their souls and their money for the garden.  So if they go and fight, they may kill others or they themselves may be killed.  Then Mohammed lied and said that this was the same message of the Torah and the Gospel. But the Bible does not teach such a message.  Mohammed ended this verse by stating that this is the good news and commanded the Muslims to continue to hold onto their pledge for they will end with a great triumph which is the garden.

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Christianity. I prefer to you not to be aggressive because it never helps. Helps only truth. Secondly if Jesus A.S was God or Gods spirit was in him do you think that spirit goes to toilet. Third he was born Miraculously and Adam A.S was created by Allah (GOD) from nothing witch sounds strong ?We have to say that Adam A.S is Greatest GOD? And who is that naked man on the cross. And if you respect the Jesus A.S why do you put picture of naked man as if it is Jesus A.S.We as a Muslims respect not only our beloved prophet S.A.S also all prophets and their followers. We would never put picture of any prophet because of respect. I am not saying naked picture i am saying just picture. I am not scientist i am not scholar i am just a simple man. Who loves not only babies who was born in Muslim family and killing by real terrorists (Terrorist is not less than president) around the world also babies who was born in any religious family.
Answer:
Thank you for your question. Why do you think I am aggressive? Do you believe that Jesus was aggressive? It is okay to be angry, but not to sin. It's okay to tell the truth in boldness and not to be a hypocrite.  To be aggressive is not a bad thing. The Bible teaches us to be cold or hot, not lukewarm. I'm glad you believe that the truth helps, and the truth is what I will share with you.   Jesus is God. Not because I believe so, but because the Bible says so. God is everywhere. God is in your kitchen, He is in your bedroom, your living-room, as well as in your bathroom; if you are in your car or on an airplane or even in a rocket shuttle. God is not limited to space or time. Nothing is impossible for God to do. Christianity teaches that Jesus is 100% God as well as 100% man. As man, He was born of flesh; He is the son of Virgin Mary so He came out of Mary in the flesh.  As God, He is the Son of God, and He came out of the Father. Jesus cannot be a good teacher and teach lies. He taught that He is the Beginning and the End, and these are two of Allah s natures in the Quran. Jesus created birds from mud; and that makes Him a creator, another nature of Allah in the Quran.    Allah told us in the Quran that Jesus can tell us the future, and no one can tell us the future except Allah.  Jesus gave life to the dead in the Quran, and this is another attribute of Allah in the Quran for only Allah can give life. Jesus is named Holy Son in the Quran, another name of Allah. There are so many descriptions of Jesus in the Bible as to being a full human, except in one thing  - which is that He never sinned.  He ate and drank as a human, so he went to the toilet as a human, but He also did all the things which are of God as we shared earlier.    Also, Jesus forgives sin in the Bible and only God can forgive sins. Jesus claimed that He is God. You need to read the Bible to understand that. The birth of Jesus is not the beginning of Jesus for even as the Qur'an teaches, Jesus is the Word of God and a spirit from God. God's Word was never created and neither was His spirit. Why was Jesus birth miraculous? It was because He became flesh. Adam was created from dirt, not by Allah, but by Jesus Himself for the Bible tells us that everything was created by the Word of God and nothing of all that was created could exist without the Word of God from the beginning until the end.   I would like you to read the Bible to know some truth about Jesus. Here is what the Bible says in John 1:1-3.  (1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.)  Is Adam a thing? Then he must have been made by the Word of God.  From the previous three verses we can learn that heaven and earth and all that is in them were made by Him, the Word of God. This Word of God, you can read about more in Genesis, Chapter 1, where the six days of creation were created by the Word of God, the same Word of God that we are talking about here. For example, on the first day, God said in verse 3 (And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.)  As you continue to read Genesis 1:6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, and 26, that is all what was created in creation.  God created all things by His spoken Word.  This Word of God is Jesus Christ for the Bible says in John 1:14, (And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.) That Jesus is the Word of God who became flesh. Jesus was not created by God, but He was the Word of God who became flesh.   I see that you have more respect for Mohammed than for Jesus or any other prophet for you write A S after Jesus and Adam, but you write S A S after Mohammed. Obviously, as you are a Muslim man, I believe you do not know anything about your Mohammed. Later I will share more information about your Mohammed from your Qur'an and your Hadith so that I can prove to you that Mohammed was a very sinful man. You said that Adam was created from nothing, which sounds strong.  I am assuming that you mean better, but that is not true for Adam was created from dirt, but Jesus was not created from dirt. Jesus was not created at all.  Jesus is the Word of God and a Spirit from God, and that is what Mohammed said in the Quran.  I believe that you believe that the Word of God and the Spirit of God are stronger than dirt for they are eternal. Therefore, Adam is not greatest god, but Jesus alone.    The naked man on the cross is the Word of God who became flesh. If you know His real name, you will understand why He was on that cross. His name is Joshua in the Hebrew language which means Savior for the Bible said that His name would be called Jesus (Joshua) becasue He would save His people from their sin. That is exactly what Jesus came to this world to do.  He is God who became a man to die on the cross for the sins of man. We read about this in Philippians 2:6-7  (6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:)  The death of Jesus on the cross was a prophecy written over a thousand years before Jesus went to the cross. We read about it in Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22 and many other places throughout the Old Testament.  As a matter of fact, everything that took place in Jesus life on earth was already a prophecy written in the Old Testament. If you are interested, I would love to send to you a full list of the prophecies and their fulfillment.   I have all respect for Jesus.  I do not believe in any picture, naked or not, of Jesus, but I am proud of my Jesus who died naked on the cross for my sins. You do not know Mohammed, as I said earlier, that 's why you respect him. If you knew Mohammed, you would not have any respect for such a man. I know that the Quran commands you to believe in the prophets and their followers; but you don't for if you did, you would believe in Jesus and respect Jesus, not the Isa of Mohammed of the Quran, the counterfeit Jesus, but the Jesus of the Bible. As born again Christians, we do not have pictures or statues of any prophets, of Jesus or others.  The cross that we have in our churches and our homes is an empty cross for our Savior is raised from the dead, and He is no longer on the cross.   Christianity never taught to kill babies, born or not. That is why I am anti-abortion. Terrorism is not the teaching of the New Testament, but is taught in the verses of Allah in the Quran and the command of Mohammed in the Hadith. Read Quran 3:151, 8:12, 33:26, 59:2, and there are many more verses in the Quran that teach to kill Christians, Jews, and others who do not believe in Mohammed and Islam.

 
Question:
I have your translation of the Generous Quran. I have a few Muslims in my carpool and I was asking the question that you noted in Quran 1:1 that it states Allah is the god of this world but that 2 Corinthians 4:4 states Satan is the God of this age. My Muslim friend responded that Aalameen I plural for ^worlds^ not ^world^, he said the ^meen^ pluralizes the word, so it was meant that Allah is the creator of everything seen and unseen.
Answer:
The teaching of the god of the worlds is a false teaching in the Quran for it could mean humans, demons, jinns, angels, or it could also mean the seven earths and the seven heavens.  Either way, it is a false teaching, but throughout the Quran you will find that Allah is the god of this world. The word aalameen is not an Arabic word, but it is a non-Arabic word of Aramaic/Hebrew/Syriac origin which means "worlds" in English.  But the rest of the description of Allah throughout the Quran is perfectly the best description of Satan in the Bible, and that is what your Muslims friends did not talk about.  Allah, the best deceiver, is Satan.  Allah who wishes to lead people to astray is Satan.  Allah who desires to fill hell with people is Satan.  Allah who rejected the Sonship of Jesus Christ is Satan.  Allah who rejected the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is Satan.  Allah who called Christians infidels is Satan.  Allah who commands Muslims to kill Christians for believing in Jesus Christ is Satan. Allah, the god of Mohammed and of the Quran, is Satan.

 
Question:
I've heard that it is written in a Hadith that Muslims are allowed to have a baby wife and even have some sexual relations with them . If you know this is true would you be so kind as to let me know the name of the Hadith and the verse ?
Answer:
It is in  Quran 65:4. Muslim men may have sexual relations with their child wives, even if they have not reached the age of menstruation. Quran 64:4  ^And for those of your women who despair of menstruation (older women), if you doubt [that they may be pregnant], their prescribed waiting time is three months, as well as for those who have not yet begun menstruation female children). And as for the pregnant ones, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah, he will make his affair the easiest.^

 
Question:
I have a question reguarding Christianity. Simple question.... what do I have to do to be saved?
Answer:
Let me first explain that when sin entered a perfect world created by God that the wages of sin, death, had to be paid when Adam and Eve disobeyed God. God used the death of animals to cover the bodies of Adam and Eve.  Because of this, the Bible explains in Romans 3:23 that ^all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.^   Years later, the Israelites, while in slavery in Egypt, were told to kill a (perfect) lamb, called the Passover lamb, and put the lamb's blood on their home's doorposts so that the death angel would pass over them and only those who obeyed did not loose their firstborn child.   Sin required a sacrifice to pay for the sin wage.  This sacrifice requirement was fulfilled 2,000 years ago when the Perfect Lamb, Jesus Christ, paid for your sins and my sins on the cross. His blood covers our sins so that when God looks at us, He only see us through the blood of Christ and finds us cleansed from our sins if we trust in Christ to save us from our sins.   The Bible tells us in John 3:16 that ^God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.^  That's how much God loves us.  He sent His Son to die for condemned people. As John 3:17-18 tells us that  ^for God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.^   For a person to come to the saving faith in Jesus Christ, this can be done in some simple steps.   1.  Admit that you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 - ^all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.^   2. Believe in Jesus. (He lived a perfect, sinless life, was crucified for your sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day.)  Jesus conquered death! I Timothy 2:5 - ^For there is one God and one Mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus.  Hebrews 7:25a - ^Therefore, He (Jesus) is able to save... those who come to God through Him.^  John 6:37b - ^Jesus said, ^The one who comes to Me, I will by no means cast out.^   3. Repent of your sins. Repentance means to be sorry enough to stop sinning. Act 3:19a - ^Repent, therefore, and be converted that your sins may be blotted out.^  2 Peter 3:9 - ^The Lord is ...long suffering towards us, not willing that anyone should perish.  That all should come to repentance.^    4. Confess your sin to Jesus - 1 John 1:9 - ^If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins.^    5. Forake your sin - which means to give it up, leave it alone.  Proverbs 28:13 - ^He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.^  Psalm 37:27a - ^Depart from evil and do good.^   6. Believe on Jesus Christ - Romans 10:9 - ^If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you will be saved.^  Ephesians 2:8-9 - ^For by grace you have been saved through faith...it is the gift of God, not of works lest anyone should boast.^  Acts 16:31b - ^Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved..^   7. Receive Jesus Christ into your heart and your life.  John 1:12  - ^But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God , even to those who believe in His name.^   I do not believe in saying a specific prayer because I do not believe just saying a prayer will save you, but you have to pray from deep in your heart and mean what you pray.  You can pray something like this -   Dear Lord Jesus,   Thank you for dying on the cross to take my sins away. I am sorry for the wrong things I have done. Please come into my heart; live in my heart forever. I am trusting You, and I know that you can make my heart clean.  I take you as my very own Lord and Savior.   In Your name I pray. Amen

 
Question:
I have a question reguarding Islam. why do you always say that muslims dont know islam because they dont know arabic. So if that is the case then the majority of the christians dont now christianity because they dont know the hebrew language including yourself ?
Answer:
The Gospel was preached in Acts 2 for the first time in 13 langauges. Acts 2:7-11 says, ^And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8 tongue, wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Creates and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.^    Islam was spread by the sword among people who could not understand what the barbaric army of Mohammed was trying to tell them. People who were forced into Islam did not have the opportunity to leave this cult if they chose to when they discovered what Islam meant even if they could have been allowed this opportunity to leave. That was in the case from Mohammed and continues on today.   While the Bible was translated to every language, even sign language, the Quran was not translated and Muslims insist that one must read the Quran in Arabic. One of the amazing things about translation is that Umar forced, in the Pact of Umar, Christians in the Middle East not to learn the Quran. For if Christians were to know the Quran, they would expose the lies and false teachings in it, just as I do today.   While Christians can pray in any language - English, French, Spanish, etc.  We Christians do not have to speak Hebrew or Greek; but sadly, over a billion Muslims, who must pray in Arabic, do not have a clue what Islam is  - simply because they cannot read the Quran.

 
Question:
I have witnessed to Muslims using (LOVE) as my theme and they QUICKLY depart. Does this Qur'an give us the answers we need?
Answer:
If you are talking about my English translation of the Quran, yes, it will help you to understand what Muslims really believe.  I believe my translation will help you to understand the truth about Islam.  Ministering to Muslims using the Gospel message is a waste of time because every truth we have in the Gospel is to the Muslim a falsehood; but if we start with the Quran, there is enough information there which proves to the Muslim.   1.  the Bible is true and has never been changed or corrupted     2.  the Qur'an is a false counterfeit of the Bible and full of errors     3.  Islam is not a peaceful, loving religion as they claim     4. Mohammed was a sinful man, a child molester, a sex offender, a womanizer, a prophet pretender, a thief, a killer, an adulterer; therefore, he cannot be a prophet                                                      Now we can go back to the Bible and share the truth of the love of Christ through the Gospel.  Muslims must be convinced that they are lost before they will have the need or desire to search for the Straight Way, who is our Lord and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

 
Question:
There is a proposal to build a mosque in our city. I have had dialog with the president and other notables from the Islamic Fnd. of Milwaukee. The question that arises at all dialogs is: Do you practice Shairia Law? The last encounter took place before a large group who were suppose to be enlightened on the "misconceptions" of Islam and the church. It is usually answered by Mr. Atta that it is a lie or non existent outside of the home. The group was satisfied with his answer that Shairia law is practiced in the home, but in no other areas. I believe that you can't have one without the other. Please give me the truth in layman's language.
Answer:
The word Shariah means Islamic law.  It's origin comes from the Qur'an which is Allah's words and the Hadith which is Mohammed's words.  Shariah encompasses everything in a Muslim's life - from birth to burial.  It is the food they eat, the liquid they drink, the air they breathe, the clothes they wear, the insurance that they don't buy, the hand they cut off of a thief, and the head that they chop off in the case of committing adultery, killing a Muslim, or leaving the cult of Islam to any other religion or faith; it is the beating of women and children.  Now if all of this can be only practiced at home, then this Mr. Atta has told you the truth.  I would love to debate Mr. Atta any time and any place to reveal the truth about the unconstitutional wicked, barbaric cult of  Islam.    None of what I mentioned above is about culture as Muslims claim, but it is the way of life.  Maybe in the next City Council meeting, I could be invited to speak to those who are in charge.  I am willing to come if I am invited by the leaders of your city.

 
Question:
I have Arab Christian friends who call Jehovah (Allah). They tell me that Christians invented the term (Allah)before Islam was born. This seems very odd as I thought (Allah) was a pre-Islamic god worshipped by the Arab pagans at the Kaaba. I assume you are an Arab Christian? Can you shed light on this for me? Thank you!
Answer:
The word (Allah) is put into the Arabic translation of the Bible by the Muslims.  As well, the Muslims forced this word and the Arabic language on all the Christians throughout the Muslim world.  The word Eliohim would be translated into Arabic in the plural Arabic as (al a lahah) which means (Gods.)  The god of Mohammed, Allah, is the Satan of the Bible who is known as the god and the lord of the world, the best deceiver, the one who leads people astray, and the one who desires to fill hell with humans.  He is not the father of Jesus Christ, nor does he have any person with him like the Holy Spirit.    Muslims in the West lie and claim that the Allah, the god of Mohammed, is the same God of the Bible.  The truth is that not one Muslim in the 57 Muslim countries, with decency or a sincere heart ever taught that the God of the Bible is the god of the Qur'an.   Another fact is that it is not because someone used the name Jehovah (like Jehovah Witnesses) that they believe n the Bible, for we Christians know the Jehovah Witnesses are nothing but a cult.  So are those who believe in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Saints. Just because they use the name Jesus Christ does not mean that they believe in my Jesus. All born again Christian Arabs, like myself, do not believe that we worship the same god, Allah, the god of Mohammed; but as a mater of fact, we rebuke Allah, the god of Mohammed, in the name of Jesus, for Allah is Satan.

 
Question:
Is Obama a Muslim? What determines how someone is Muslim?
Answer:
A child's religion in Islam must follow the religion of his father.  There is no such a thing in Islam (of freedom of religion.)  If a Muslim chooses to leave Islam, he or she must be put to death.  As it is written in Quran 6 :151 (…And do not kill the soul which Allah forbids except with a just cause…) and the Hadith in Bukhari, volume 9, #17 Mohammed said, (The blood of a Muslim cannot be shed except in three cases for murder, adultery,  and the one who becomes an Apostate (leaves) from Islam )  This is what we call (honor killing.")   Therefore, Obama, like it or not, is a Muslim. If he prayers or fasts during Ramadan or visits Mecca, he is a Muslim.  Muslim men in the West marry Christian women or other women, but they will never allow a Christian man or other to marry a Muslim woman.  If she does marry a Christian man or other, she will be put to death.

 
Question:
As you know The Mecca Temple is the most sacred place in the Muslim world. Muslims pray towards it all the time wherever they are. But I cant help but wonder. What do you think would happen if that temple were to be destroyed. How do you think Muslims would react if the Kabbah and The Black Stone inside it were to be destroyed. Muslims tend to think that their religion is protected by God and is untouchable. But lets say if the CIA dropped a bomb on The Kabbah and destroyed the black stone inside it. Do you think that Muslims would go crazy and launch an all out Jihad against The West. Or would they finally wake up and realize that they are wrong and their religion is a sham? This is just being curious.
Answer:
I do not believe in victimizing the Muslim twice.  I do not believe that we will get rid of Muslims by attacking their holy site. They are already a victim of the cult of Islam. We cannot get rid of Islam by using bullets or bombs, but only when we reveal the truth about Islam, Mohammed, and the Qur'an; that's when we can lead them to Christ. I do agree with you that if someone ever did put a bomb in Mecca, the Muslims would destroy the world.

 
Question:
I have heard your speeches and they are very good. but I recently heard someone talk about in the bible section deuteronomy 22:13-21, where they talk about stoning a woman if she is not a virgin. Can you tell me how do we reply to people when they bring this up and say the bible has such verses, so why talk bad about the quran. thanks!
Answer:
The killing in the Old Testament is justified killing, for the wages of sin is death. The Bible describes death as 3 different deaths, spiritual, physical, and eternal. Spiritual death is to be separated from God, physical death is to return to dust, and eternal death is to burn in hell forever. God throughout the Old Testament condemned sin in many ways, sometimes by flood as in the case of Noah, sometimes in fire as in the case of Sodom and Gomorrah, and many times by the sword as did Moses, Joshua, Saul, and David as they engaged in war with the people of the land. Sometimes God punished His own chosen people through the wicked people of the land because the Jews had sinned against God. Sometimes God punished His own people by the angel of the Lord and killed thousands of them. Sometimes God killed His people by the poison of the snake or plague. God gave Moses the Law which states that if someone commits adultery, they must be stoned to death. So it was justifiable for every one who committed adultery to be put to death. That is the Jewish law, and that is teaching of the Old Testament In the New Testament teaching, we believe that the God of the Old Testament is the same as the God of the New Testament, and He justified sins' punishment on His own self for on the cross God reconciled the world to Himself through Jesus Christ who died and rose again on the third day. Therefore, God no longer requires a physical death for those who sin against Him, but He will requires the third death which is eternal hell for all those who refuse to take Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Remember, as we read in John 8:3-11, when the Jews brought a woman who was caught in adultery, and they asked Him, (Moses commanded this woman to be stoned. What would you do, Jesus?) Jesus answered, "Whoever among you who is without sin may cast the first stone on her." Then they all left. Jesus said to the woman, (Go and sin no more.) Muslims may think that Christianity does not condemn sin because Jesus did not stone this woman. Others claim that Christianity condones sin because Christians do not judge sin. Neither of these statements is true for Jesus died for this woman's sin, and any one who sins without Jesus will pay for his own sin. We no longer live by the Law of Moses which is justifiable, but we live by the grace of Christ. On the other hand, Mohammed ordained death for women who commit adultery. Sadly, if a woman in Islam is raped, they must provide 4 eye witnesses (3 are not qualified) for the actual act or it is not considered rape and the woman will be stoned to death. In Judaism there is justice, in Christianity there is grace, but in Islam there is no justice at all. To learn more about Islam and women in Islam, watch our DVD (Women in Islam.)

 
Question:
My question is about the different names that are used to refer to Jesus by Arab Christians. I was told by a friend who was told by an Arab Christian that the name for Jesus is (Isa). I listened to a podcast from a pastor that I respect who said the name Arab Christians use for Jesus is not (Isa) but (Yasu'). Is there a difference between the two names? If so, what is the difference between (Isa) and (Yasu')? If an Arab Christian uses either name for Jesus, is he referring to the Jesus of the Bible?
Answer:
Isa is not an Arabic word, and it is not Jesus name in Arabic.  The real name for Jesus in Arabic is Yasu. Isa is a counterfeit of Mohammed for Isa is not the Son of God, and he did not die on the cross or rise again.  By denying the deity of Christ and the work of Jesus on the cross, we would lose the Old Testament prophecy and the fulfillment of the New Testament. The Isa of Mohammed prophesied that Mohammed would come after him, but Jesus of the Bible prophesied that Mohammed is a false prophet as are other false prophets.  For more information watch our video (What the Qur'an teaches about Jesus.)

 
Question:
Is there any factual evidence that Muhammad actually existed? We all know there is hostorical evidence for Jesus's existence on this earth but what about Muhammad? I thank God for your ministry and may he bless you and your family even more abundantly!
Answer:
I believe you have read the new book of Robert Spencer. I believe that he did a good job in his book, and his challenge to the Muslims is very strong. It is funny that Muslims cannot win the debate against him, but I personally can.   1.4 billion Muslims who believe in Mohammed to be a prophet is an evidence that he did exist, but it is amazing that none of them is able to prove him to exist historically which is a great evidence of the foolishness to believe in him as a prophet, especially the more highly they exalt him as the best man - prophet-husband-messenger who ever walked on the face of the earth. The great evidence of how foolish Muslims are is to ask these two questions concerning Mohammed. First, can Muslims share something good or excellent concerning their prophet Mohammed. Second, can Muslims share with us one sin that Mohammed did not commit. They believe in a man that they know nothing about for if they knew who Mohammed was, they would not believe in Islam. The opposite is true if they were to know who Christ is, they would become a Christian.

 
Question:
Are you aware of ANY fatwa (command from an imam) that would say that it is permissible or even a command to learn the bible or even read it? I saw something on tv about an imam telling a freedom fighter to study the bible to get an understanding of it.
Answer:
Muslims do not read the Bible to undersand it, but they read it to know more of its errors for they believe that the Bible is 100% Corrupted – Old Testament and New Testament. That’s why in many countries the Bible is an illegal book, and Muslims believe that if they read it they will become an infidel.  Only the strong in the religion of Islam can read it to attack the Christians and the Jews for the purpose of leading them to Islam.

 
Question:
Your evening presentation referenced a verse from the Qur'an that gives Muslims an (out) from financially contributing to Obamacare.  Would you please send me that verse?  Also, could you please tell me the status of the bill making it a federal hate crime to offend a Muslim or disparage Islam?
Answer:
There is not a specific verse in the Quran from which Muslims have a proof of a conscience objection to buying insurance, but they will simply say that it is forbidden in Islam to buy insurance for it shows that Muslims do not trust Allah if they buy any.   As for the hate crime bill, it was written almost 5 years ago when Pres. Obama was a senator and signed by 24 senators and then vetoed twice by Pres. Bush. My personal opinion is that Obama will sign it into law in his next term if reelected.

 
Question:
Is there really a promise for Perpetual Virgins in Islamic Paradise?
Answer:
Yes, it is true, and they are 72.   Quran 2:25 states: And bashshar (1) those who believed and did good [deeds], that for them are Jannat,(2) below which the rivers flow. Every time they were provided from it a provision of fruit, they said, This is the provision we had before. And they will be given the like of it. And they will have in it pure (3) azawaj,(4) and they will abide in it forever. The pure azawaj are the ever-virgins.

I do not know the program but they say they are being taught to use the Koran to win people to Jesus and it is a weekend course and I am very concerned.  Paul said I preach the Cross, Jesus crucified and it is foolishness tome that do not believe.  Where in the Bible does it tell Christians to use the Koran in this way.  I am very concerned that  this is an off shoot of  Rick Warren and Chrislam or what ever they call it.  I think this group is based in Minnesota I am not sure.  Is this a Islamic way of infiltrating the churches?  Their pastor and I attended Bible School at the same time though I am 7 years older than he is it is a very contemporary church and up until recently they did not have altar calls, if you needed to talk to some one just see us at the back on your way out was the close of the service.  They have started having altar calls recently, my son (33) asked me the other day why do you think the pastor started do you think he was under conviction to do so and my response was he should have been!!     I personally think it is unscriptural what is your take on it and advise ??
Answer:
In what way are they using the Qur’an? Do they use the Quran because they believe in it or because the Muslims believe in it? I personally use the Quran when I minister to Muslims. First, to prove to the Muslims that the Bible is correct. Second, to prove to the Muslims that the Quran is not the perfect word of God. Third, then I go back to the Bible to share the truth of the Gospel to them.

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Islam. hello I am a Catholic. You know most Muslims I communicate with have no interest in learning Christian theology. All they seem to want to do, is to discredit our Bible, right off the bat and close their ears to everything else. I don't have a problem with that. But I do get a little frustrated,because Christianity offers us a guide to living in today's world. Personally speaking,I understand that a belief in God, angels, jinn's etc. is a belief in the supernatural. I can not say that the existence of God is a 'fact'.....I asked a Jehovah witness if his belief in God is a supernatural belief and he said for him God is a 'fact'. I ask Muslims the same and they all avoid answering the question. Theologically speaking nothing is implausible. I say this because it is impossible to place limitations on our Creator. I am looking for a way to level the playing field with the Muslim. So that no one (especially the Muslim)thinks of his faith as superior to ours....I don't look at any faith,especially my own in this manner. The Muslim wants for me to listen and I want them to listen. But if I can't get the Muslim to say to himself that his belief in God is a supernatural belief. Then talking to the fellow is a waste of time. I would appreciate your comments on what I have written. thank you.
Answer:
There is so much that we can say about Islam, but it would be a waste of time. The best way to talk to a Muslim is to compare their book to our book.  Have you thought about investigating Islam's holiest book, The Generous Quran, to that what is written in the Bible.  This is what we call comparing apples to apples.  My new book, The Revelation of Error, which will be published shortly, this would be a help.  In the mean time, compare the stories in the Bible to what Mohammed copied (from the Bible) in the Quran. I disagree with your statement that the existence of God is not a fact.  Let me ask you some questions. Do you exist? Can you be sure that you exist? How can you exist, if you do not believe that God the Creator does not exist as a fact? The Bible declares that nature itself reveals that God exists because of His creation. As it is written in Romans 1:20: (For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.)

 
Question:
Jesus Christ claimed to be God - (I and the Father are one.) Is there any verse in Quran where Mohammed claims to be Allah or does he recognize that he is only a man? Therefore he cannot be on the level with Jesus Christ as he claims.
Answer:
Mohammed never claimed to be Allah, but he claimed to be the seal and final prophet. Qur'an 33:40- (Mohammed was not the father of any man among you, but is the messenger of Allah and the seal of the prophets. And Allah was the knower of all things.) Bukhari vol. 4, book 56, #735: (Mohammed said) (…I am the last of the Prophets.) According to Islam, Mohammed was in a higher position than Jesus, simply because Muslims believe that Jesus was just a man, not the Son of God, and Mohammed claimed to be the cornerstone. Bukhari vol. 4, book 56, #735: (Mohammed said) (My similarity in comparison with the other prophets is that of a man who has built a house nicely and beautifully, except for a place of one brick in a corner… I am that brick...)   Therefore, Allah kept the best of the prophets to the end. Muslims claim that Jesus message was corrupted, he never died on the cross, and all that Christians believe is a lie. (Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461) Narrated Abdullah: (…god has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, 'It is from God,' to sell it for a little gain…)   Muslim claim the truth can only be found in the teachings of Mohammed and the word of Allah in the Quran.  Arabic author Mahdi La Li: ((The) Holy Quran mentions…that no corruption shall touch it from any side…(the) Holy Qur’an has remained unchanged (not) altered an iota during all these 1400 years. It shall remain so until the final Day of Judgment, for god has taken it on Himself to protect it.)   Therefore, Muslims believe that the only accepted religion is Islam. Quran 3:85- (And whoever desires any other religion except Islam, so it (any other religion) will not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he will be of the losers.)

 
Question:
Do you have Video sources (youtube ext.) of the 'peaceful' Muslims coming to the UK and now they're doing the opposite?
Answer:
I personally do not have videos, but there are many videos available on line.  Here are a few:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSK6se-0fZ0 http://www.youtube.com/watchv=ocU5x_03MDM&feature=relatedLoad:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN6TZ6HpheA&feature=related

 
Question:
I found this link about sharia crucifixion occurring in Egypt. Have you verified this? If true, it has remained outside of the mainstream media. I look forward to seeing you again. In Christ, Jim http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/arab-spring-run-amok-brotherhood-starts-crucifixions/
Answer:
Yes, I have checked it out with some sources from Egypt. Crucifixions are taking place by using ropes, not nails.  The victims are naked and severely beaten before being crucified.  Here are a couple of websites:  http://www.copts-united.com/Arabic2011/Article.php?I=1256&A=66349    http://www.christian-dogma.com/vb/showthread.phpt=277618

 
Question:
Please explain the difference between ilah and allah. Eel,ilah and el,elohi,elohim are same?In Arabic, the word stands for God is Ilah or allah?
Answer:
All these words, ilah and allah, eel, ilah, el, elohi, and elohim, come from the root Hebrew word elohim which is God in the plural form.  Muslims claim that Allah, the god of Mohammed, is the same Allah, the God of the Bible, but that is not true. In the Arabic Bible we use the word Allah for God, but one important fact is that the Allah of the Bible is not Allah the god of Mohammed. You will find this to be a fact if you simply ask the Muslim if he believes if Allah the god of the Qur'an is the father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  They will simply say that this is infidelity and that Allah has no son. And when you read the Quran, you see that Mohammed's god, Allah, is Satan for Allah is the god of the world according to the Quran. According to the Bible, the god of this world is Satan. See 2 Corinithians 4:4. Allah the god of Mohammed is known as the best deceiever.  See Qur'an 3:45 and 8:30. He also leads people astray.  See Quran 35:8. He also desires to fill hell with people.  See Quran 11:119.  Therefore, we Christians do not believe in Allah the god of Satan.

 
Question:
How does your translation of the Koran handle those passages which are nothing but gibberish? Do you just omit them or do you translate into english gibberish?
Answer:
I understand what you mean.  The Arabic is much worse than you think. I do my best in translating without adding or taking away words or meaning.

 
Question:
I think Abraham was a pagan before he was called by God according to Joshua 24:2,3.
Answer:
When we read the account in Genesis 11 and 12, the Bible does not say that he was a pagan.  In Joshua 24:2, the Bible does not say that Abraham served other gods, but his father Tereh and his ancestors are the ones who worshipped false gods.  We do not have direct information that Abraham served other gods. Joshua 24:2 -(And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.)   Here is another important fact. We are all (pagans) before we come to Christ.

 
Question:
Do any or many Arab Christians pray in Arabica to Isa and actually use that term (that Rick Warren used)? Before Islam, there was still the Arabic language....though confined to primarily Saudi Arabia. So for 600 years from Christ to Mohammad, there certainly had to be many Christians who spoke Arabic and there must be at least a few extant writings by Arab Christians who wrote in Arabic invoking the name of Jesus. So same question. What term did they use to address Jesus or pray to him?
Answer:
They pray in the name of  Yaso'e  which means savior the word Isa is a made up word by Mohammed and actually has no meaning in Aribic athough it has become known as the word for Jesus. Yasoe comes from the Hebrew (Yeshua) for more information on this go to http://jesusisajew.org/YESHUA.php 

 
Question:
My reason for the question was to have an answer for those who believe Islam is a peaceful religion and we in America have nothing to fear from them or from shariah law,(I probably spelled that wrong). but, I am absolutely possitive that due to many scriptural references to Christians and Jews being beheaded in the last days, that Islam will be the world religion of the tribulation period and that America is being set up to accept Islam by our current administration. If we who are true believers in Jesus Christ do not stand up for the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, this country is destined to fall in the very near future.   I also, wanted the chapter and verses in the Quran to compare with the copies I've been given, to show the same group of people how they have been lied to and the it is totally acceptable and even encouraged, for a Muslim to lie to an infidel (any one who is not Muslim).
Answer:
Here are some verses from the Quran and one from the Hadith which instruct Muslims to lie. 1.   It is lawful to deny the faith Quran 16:106 (Whoever becomes an infidel in Allah after he believed, except one who was compelled and his heart is secure in faith, but whoever opens his chest to the infidelity, the wrath of Allah will be on them, and they will have great torment.)   2.  It is lawful to lie in swearing  Quran 2:225 (Allah will not hold you responsible for your mere utterance in an oath, but he will hold you responsible for that which your hearts gained. (what your heart meant) And Allah is forgiving, forbearing.)   3. Mosnad Ahmed # 26315 Hadith (Mohammed s sayings) Mohammed said,(It s lawful to lie in three cases.  A man to his wife that she will be pleased with him, or at a time of war, because war is deception, or to make peace between people.)

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Christianity. Where will the human soul after death? 2. Should we pray for forgiveness and well-being of the soul of the deceased? Please include reference verses from the gospels about whether the ground can support or not.
Answer:
It is written in the Bible in Hebrews 9:27 that (And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.)  Before people die, if they were saved they will go to heaven where they have eternal life. If they were not saved, they will spend eternity in hell.  As you have seen in this verse, there is no such thing as a second chance.  After death, there is judgment. When we say a person can be saved, we mean saved from the punishment from sin. The punishment of the wages of sin is death as written in Romans 6:23. (The wages of sin is death...) To believe in Jesus and that He died on the cross for our sins, that will give us the forgiveness for our sins; and therefore, we will not die the second death but actually will have eternal life for the scripture says in Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus.   Anyone who accepts Jesus as his or her Lord and Savior will have eternal life in heaven. As written in John 3:16-17: (For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that  whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.)   Anyone who rejected the gift of God, which is etenal life by rejecting Jesus' substitutional death on his or her behalf, he or she will spend eternity in the lake of fire as it is written in Revelation 20:14-15 which  says :  (And death and hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.)

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Christianity. Why in Genesis 6:4 God has mentioned animals as clean and unclean, while in the new testament Acts 10:15 God has made it clean. I know that the old testament was commands for the the Jews, but I still find it confusing. Does it means that some foods or animals were unclean then God changed it to be clean?
Answer:
God created animals, some as clean and some as unclean simply to show a division of His creation. For some of these were clean to be used as sacrifices to bring cleanliness to sinful men and to be a picture to the righteous and pure sacrifice for all mankind, our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. After Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies of the Old Testament  when He died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day, there is no such a thing as clean and unclean animals for there is no need for animal sacrifice.  The vision in Acts 10 that was given to Peter is not about clean and unclean animals, but is actually about clean and unclean people for before this vision was given to Peter, the Jewish people believed not only that the Gentiles were unclean but even mixed races between the Jews and other nations were unclean as in the case of the Samaritan. The application of this vision to Peter was not that he would be able to eat unclean animals and fish like pigs or shellfish, but that he might go and minister to Cornelius who was a Gentile who  was considered unclean before the vision but clean after hearing the Word of God from Peter, believing in Christ as Lord and Savior, filled with the Holy Spirit.   On the other hand, clean and unclean animals of the Old Testament was also to divide the people of the earth.  Those who are believers in God and who obey His laws by not eating the unclean creatures,  these were called the people of the Jewish faith and were set apart from the rest of the people of the earth beginning with Adam, his son Abel,  Noah, Abraham, King David, and ended with God's Son, Jesus Christ, the true Lamb of God, who came for His own (Jewish people).  Because His own rejected Him, all those who believe in Him, both Jews and Gentiles, are once again clean because of Christ s sacrifice.

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Islam. Where did Obama go to school to learn Islam for two hours a week? Is there proof that I can show people who have reservations?
Answer:
President Obama spent hours each day in a public school in Indonesia where he learned all about Islam.  That does not make him a Muslim because even Christians attended class.  To learn more about Obama's Islam, please watch our videos on our website - (Revealing the Truth about Barak Hussein Obama) and Freedom or Surrender.  It is available on our home page.  Just click on it.

 
Question:
I have a question regarding Islam. Does the word (Jihad) actually appear in the Quran, and if so, can you give me the chapters an verses it appears in. I'm being told that it does not???
Answer:
Perhaps  whoever told you that the word is not mentioned in the Quran could not read Arabic or does not have my true English translation of the Quran.The word jihad, in fact, is mentioned in the Quran 31 times. Here are the references: Quran       2:218        3:142       4:95       5:35,53,54      8:72, 74,75                     9:16,19,20,24,41,44,73,81,86,88         16:110         22:78        25:52       29:6, 69                    47:31         49:15         60:1         61:11       66:9   Do not forget.  There are 79 verses a direct command from Allah in the Quran to Muslims to engage in war.  And here is a soft whisper to you my friend, get yourself a copy of my Quran and study it and be a learner, not like most Americans. For the scripture says in Hosea 4:6 - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.  

 
Question:
Hi Mr. Dakdok, I'm a high school student and am currently in a U.S. Government class. My teacher stated that he knows for 100% certain that Obama is not a Muslim because one of the five pillars of Islam states that you have to publicly proclaim Allah is God. And my teacher says that Obama has never publicly stated Allah is God. As a Christian I have honest concerns about President Obama. Even though he states he is a Christian, his actions and words definitely do not represent it. I would just like your words and wisdom to help clarify this issue. Thank you for all of the work you have done in the apologetics field, your materials have been a great resource to me, and I look forward to obtaining more knowledge from them.
Answer:
I am glad that our ministry s materials are informing you about Islam.  Perhaps your teacher does not know much Islam.   Do you know that Allah said in the Quran that it is lawful for a Muslim to deny his faith? In Quran 16:106: (Whoever becomes an infidel in Allah after he believed, except one who was compelled and his heart is secure in faith, but whoever opens his chest to the infidelity, the wrath of Allah will be on them, and they will have great torment.)   Did you know that it is lawful for a Muslim to lie in their swearing?  Qur'an 2:225: (Allah will not hold you responsible for your mere utterance in an oath, but he will hold you responsible for that which your hearts gained. (what your heart meant) And Allah is forgiving, forbearing.)   Do you u know that Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, taught in the Hadith (Mohammed's sayings )that it is lawful to lie to the nearest of them in their family - that is their wives, and to their enemies - that is the Christians and the jews, and to their friends.  In other words, Mohammed taught the Musims that it is lawful to lie to everyone?   Mosnad Ahmed Hadith #26315,  Mohammed said, (It is lawful to lie in three cases. A man to his wife that she would be pleased with him, or at a time of war because war is deception, or to make peace between people.)   There is more to be given to answer your illogical teacher who is most likely a liberal Obama worshiper. If you need more, write back to me, or even better, give me a call.

 
Question:
I'm a baptist pastor for Korean language group in dallas, TX. I' would like to know recent islamic activities in education and court in America. Would you give me some information.
Answer:
Muslims are pursuing their dreams of infiltrating and taking over the United States of America. So far they are doing a great job. Simply  because the Americans are helping the Muslims to take over America by giving them the textbook.  As a matter of fact, they are giving the Muslims more than that (the entire country).  If you ask me why, I will give you a simple answer. 1.  The ignorance among Americans concerning Islam.  Hosea 4:6 2,  Political correctness which is the foundation for the 21st century in the West. 3. The level of deception among so-called moderate Muslims whom I believe are true Muslims who practice taquah. (Quran 3:28) The main reason is that the West is rejecting the Bible and the God of the Bible. Perhaps if the church in America will wake up before it's too late and practice  2 Chronicles 7:14, we can save America from the barbaric cult of Islam and save the Muslim from the fire of hell to the glory of God.

 
Question:
How are sins forgiven in islam?
Answer:
Here is the answer to your question about sins being forgiven in Islam.   Sins are forgiven in Islam through good deeds. 1. In Quran 2:286:  (So he (Allah) will forgive whom he wills, and he (Allah) will torment whom he wills.)  Men have no say in it.  2.  Quran 11:114: (Surely good deeds drive away the evil deeds.)  Prayer, fasting, alms giving, visiting Mecca, the pilgrimage – helps Muslims to receive forgiveness for sins, but this will not guarantee them the paradise.  The only guarantee for paradise is for Muslims to die for the sake of Allah as written in Quran 3:169. (And do not think that those who were killed for the sake of Allah dead. Yet they are alive with their lord, receiving their provision.)

 
Question:
Can a good Muslim be a good American?
Answer:
Absolutely not.  The answer is that to be a good Muslim, you must believe and practice the Quran which commands Muslims not only to hate Americans and their constitution, but to kill Americans (infidels) and destroy their constitution by replacing it with sharia (Islamic law), the command of Allah in the Quran and the command of Mohammed in the Hadith. 

 
Question:
My colleague was trying to quote from genesis regarding Esau and Issac. Quoting Issac being born red and hairy as proof that he is the father of the Caucasian. I responded by correcting him in scripture and telling him that it's possible speculation. At present I am hearing Muslims say that Jesus is their main prophet under Muhammed. Why are they suddenly doing this?
Answer:
White Europeans came from Japheth, the youngest son of Noah. Jesus is not a prophet to the Muslim and Mohammed is not a prophet to us Christians. Jesus prophesied that he would die and rise again on the third day. Do Muslims believe in His this prophecy?  Obviously not, therefore, Jesus cannot be a prophet.  Jesus also prophesied that many false prophets would come after Him, meaning Mohammed is a false prophet especially when we study everything to know about Mohammed, we will discover that he is the only prophet without one prophecy, but in his life we discover that Mohammed was an unrepentant sinful man, a child molester, sex offender, a prophet pretender, an adulterer, a womanizer, a thief, a killer, a liar, and many more by the permission of Allah his god, who is Satan, the god of this world, the best deceiver, the one who leads people astray, and his desire is to fill people with hell.  Amanda, read the Quran, Allah s word, and the Hadith, Mohammed s word, and you will see the truth there for yourself.

 
Question:
How does Obama s gay agenda go along with Islams teachings, and him being a Muslim? Are not they against homosexuals? I try to tell someone that he is a Muslim and they bring this up, I have no answer.
Answer:
Obama would like to destroy the morality of America.  This can be done by destroying the American family. Destroying the American family will destroy America from within. Muslims, with their growth rate, within 100 years will overtake America, but if Obama’s agenda and the gay agenda succeed in America, this will help the Muslims to have unlimited number of wives. The Muslims will take over America in 30 years instead of 100 years.  Muslims will use anything to accomplish their goals.

 
Question:
Can you please tell me about the founding of Islam? I have read that it grew out of a pagan religion worshiping a moon god. Others insist that it came out of the Bible.
Answer:
I personally do not believe that Mohammed had anything to do with the moon god.  Mohammed worshipped the Satan god for as we read the Quran, we see that Allah is nothing but Satan. As stated in Quran 1: 1: 1 (The praise be to Allah, the lord of the worlds.)  The Bible tells us that the lord of the world is Satan.   You need to read the Quran.  We encourage you to get a copy of our Qur’an and also a copy of our new book which will be available soon, The Revelation of Error. These books will show you that Mohammed did not come up with anything new but just copied and distorted stories from the Bible.

 
Question:
The Quran and Hadiths clearly tell Muslims not to take Jews or Christians as friends.  Muslims counter this with the word is not friend, but protector.   You quotes a Surah or Aya that would make Muslims protectors of Allah, since the same word is used.   What is that aya or Surah.
Answer:
The verse is Quran 5:51. The word "aolya" is mentioned in the Qur'an in different forms, sometimes (wali) as in Quran 2:107 or 2:120. 107Do you not know that Allah has the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and that you do not have a friend nor helper other than Allah?   Notice how other Muslim translators translate the word - Maulana used the word (friend.) Bickthal used the word (guardian.) Rashad used the word (lord.) Sarwar used the word (helper.)  Shakir used the word (guardian.) Sherali used the word (helper.) Yusufali used the word (patron.) As for Khan, he simply used the word wali.   The word {aulya} is the plural form for wali as in Qu'an 5:51.     51O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Nasara (Christians) as friends. They are friends to one another. And whoever among you takes them as friends, so surely he is of them. Surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.  Notice how the same scholar above translated the same word as mentioned in this verse three times.   Maulana used the word (friends, friends, friends.) Bickthal used the word (friends, friends, friends.) Rashad used the word (allies, allies, ally.) Sarwar used the word (intimate friends, friends, whoever does.) Shakir used the word (friends, friends, friend.) Sherali used the word (friends, friends, friends.) Yusufali used the word "friends and protectors, friends and protectors, turned to them [for friendship].)  Notice he added the words (and protectors.) As for Khan, he simply used the word {auliya}. (Then he added the words [friends, protectors, helpers, etc.], auliya' to one another, as {auliya}.)   As you see above, almost all English translators used the word (friends,) but a few struggled and tried to use other words knowing that the English translation will be read by Westerners, and they tried not to present the word of Allah in the Quran to show enmity between Muslims and Christians and Jews.  That is why they tried to use other words as written above.  Therefore, they came up with the assumption that Allah meant in these verses that he does not desire for the Muslim believers to take the Jews and the Christians as helpers or allies or protectors at the time of war, but they can take them as friends. But here we ask the question, who was Mohammed fighting? In the first 13 years that he lived after he emigrated from Mecca to Medina, was he fighting Indians? Or the Americans? Or perhaps the Australians? The answer is very simple. None of the above. He was simply fighting the Christians and the Jews.  He invaded their lands, killed their men, and raped their females.   I think this problem of understanding the word  wali (friend) or auliya' (friends) can be ended when we read the interpretation of these words by all Muslims scholars as it is repeated throughout the pages of the Qur'an. For example, Ibn Kathir said that (Allah forbids his servants, the believers, for taking the Jews and Christians as friends, for they are the enemies of Islam. May Allah engage in war with them.) Now you can have an idea of how Muslim scholars treated the Jews and Christians.  Was it love or was it hate? You cannot take me as friend if you have one desire and one desire only, which is to kill me.

 
Question:
Does the Quran permit its followers to more readily, or easily, or blindly, accept the government perpetrated hoax of evolution over what true Christians know from the bible of the true origin of man and of all God's creations?
Answer:
Muslims countries teach evolution in their biology classes, and sadly the teachers who teach this subject do not have enough knowledge to speak against or to defend creation. The Quran does not give any details concerning creation, but there are plenty of contradictions and nonsense in its creation story. The Hadith, Mohammed's sayings, adds more water to the muddy Quranic verses, so it is chaos.  That is why I wish some Christian scientists could teach Christian creation science in the Muslim world for this could be a great tool to defend the lies of evolution and also the truth of the Bible.

 
Question:
How many muslims are there in America? What can we do to stop them from coming in?
Answer:
The true number in America is unknown because of political correctness, no one has the guts to really count them as we count the Hispanics. We are commanded by Christ not like the Muslims but to love them for they are our enemy, and Christ commanded us in Matthew 5:44 to (love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and hate you.) We must separate the Muslim from Islam.  Islam as a cult (Quran - the words of Allah, Hadith - the words of Mohammed) must be hated for it is evil, but Muslims, on the other hand, are victims of Islam and we must love them.    The only way we can get rid of them here in America is to lead them to Christ.  They are like cancer cells and have already spread all over America, and the only chemotherapy to get rid of this cancer is Jesus Christ. So learn the truth about Islam ad Christianity and share it with the Muslims.

 
Question:
Can you translate word for word 9:31 of the Quran, not adding or removing anything?I have seen translations and none are the same.Something is added or removed or switched around in everyone of them.
Answer:
Here is the verse as translated in my true, accurate translation of the Quran, The Generous Quran.  Do you have a copy of it? It is available on line at my website.

 
Question:
Please explain the difference between the standard Arabic greeting and the Muslim greeting. And two, why was it such a big deal when Obama got a standing ovation when speaking at the Egyptian university? If you email me the answer I will forward it to them.
Answer:
The standard Arabic Christian greeting is Salam lakum,  which means (peace be to you.)  As Jesus said in the Bible, Salame lakum, which means (My peace to you.") The response to this greeting is Salam wa namah lakum which means (peace and grace to you.)   The Arabic Muslim greeting is El salam alakum which means literally (you owe me the peace) or (the peace be upon you.)  The response is Wa alakum el salam which means (and you owe us your peace) or (the peace be on you, too.) Not a clap of hands as it was in the case of Obama. The reason why the Muslims cheered was because they knew he was a Muslim man, and that was the big deal about Obama getting a standing ovation when speaking at the university .

 
Question:
What do Shia Muslims believe the twelfth Imam will do when he returns? (If he returns)
Answer:
The Shia (which are only 15% of the Muslims) believe that the twelfth Imam will come before the end of time and will be the helper for the christ who we know in the Christian faith as the Anti-Christ.  The 12th Imam historically disappeared in the 8th century. Shia believe that he as taken alive to heaven and that's why  he will return.  I personally believe that he was killed. By the way, no such prophecy exists in the Quran or the Hadith. As a matter of fact, there are no prophecies in the Quran at all.

 
Question:
My wife is half American and half Afghani. We have three sons. I am Christian. My wife is not Christian. My wifes dad is from Afghanistan and he is Muslim. Can you give me versus that speak to Muslims killing the infidel?
Answer:
The words [engage in war] are repeated in the Quran 79 times.  Here are some examples.    Quran 2:216 War is decreed to you, and it is hated by you. And perhaps you may hate something and it is good for you, and perhaps you love something and it is evil for you, and Allah knows and you do not know. Qur’an 9:5  So when the forbidden months are passed, so kill the polytheists wherever you find them, and take them (as captive), and besiege them and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush, so if they repent and perform the prayer and give the legal alms, so leave their way free. Surely Allah is forgiving, merciful. Qur’an 9:14 Engage in war with them, Allah will torment them by your hands and put them to shame and give you victory over them and heal the chest of a believing people. Qur’an 8:65 O you prophet, provoke the believers to engage in war. If there will be twenty patient ones of you, they will have victory over two hundred…   There are over 30 verses in the Quran where Allah and Mohammed commands Muslims to perform jihad against Christians and Jews for the purpose of spreading Islam.    Quran 9:41 March forth lightly or heavily and perform jihad (holy war) with your money and your lives for the sake of Allah. This is best for you, if you were knowing. Qur’an 9:29 Engage in war with those who do not believe in Allah and in the last day. And do not forbid what Allah and his messenger forbid, and do not believe in the religion of the truth (Islam) among those who have been given the book until they pay the tribute out of hand and they are subdued. Qur’an 8:39  And engage in war with them until there will not be sedition and the religion (Islam) will be completely to Allah. So, if they cease, so surely Allah sees what they do.   For tyranny was invented by Allah in the Qu'an as stated in the following verses: Quran 33:26-27 And He brought down the people of the Book (Jews and Christians) who backed them from their strong places, and cast terror into their hearts. A group of them you are killing, and a group of them you are taking captive. 27And He made you to inherit their land and their homes and their money and a land which you had never set foot on. And Allah was mighty over all things. And do not forget Mohammeds words in the Hadith: Muslim:C9B1N31 (I have been commanded to fight people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah, and believe in me I am the Messenger and in all that I have brought.") Bukhari:V4B53N386 (Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah alone or pay us the Jizyah [tribute tax] in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: (Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.)   Remember that all Christians are infidels as stated in the Quran. For all Christians believe that Jesus is God. Qur’an 5:72  Infidels indeed are those who said, (Surely Allah is the Christ, son of Mary.) And the Christ said, (O children of Israel, serve Allah, my lord and your lord.) Surely whoever partners with Allah, so indeed Allah forbids him the garden. And his abode is the fire, and the unjust will have no helpers.    All those who believe in the trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are also infidels as stated in the Quran : Quran 5:73  Infidels indeed are those who said, "Surely Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one god, and if they do not refrain from what they are saying, a painful torment will touch those who became infidels among them.   The way to kill the Christian infidels is stated in the Qur'an in the following verse: Quran 47:4 So, when you meet those who became infidels, so strike the necks (decapitate) until you have made a great slaughter among them…   Once again, get yourself a copy of my Quran translation so that you can read the rest of the other verses (over 300 verses) throughout the Qur'an which teaches the same message.  You can also get our DVD (Revealing the Truth about Islam) which would help you a lot.

 
Question:
My answers for 11 questions from a 15 year old boy are following.
Answer:
1) What was it like to grow up as a Christian in a Muslim country? Before I answer this question, I would like to let you know that my country, Egypt, was a Christian country 1800 years ago before Muslims came to invade my homeland. Within 100 years Muslims killed 4 million Christian men, and they took many of the wives and daughters of these Egyptian Christian men that they had killed as concubines and slaves. They raped them and impregnated them. That is who the Muslim Egyptians are today. They are the children of my ancestor’s females who were born as a result of killing and rape. The early Muslims who came to Egypt did not immigrate as husbands, wives, and children. They were army men who came 1400 years ago and invaded my home country Egypt. As for your first question, of what was it like to grow up as a Christian in a Muslim country, there are two answers. The propaganda answer which you may read about in your textbook which is written by some liberal or some Muslim to brainwash students like yourself with lies like saying that it is a normal life for Muslims and Christians to live in harmony and love in the Muslim world, but that is far away from the truth. For centuries, Christians were and still are persecuted in the 57 Muslim countries around the world. There are no equal rights or human rights for non-Muslims in the Muslim world, especially for those who become a Christian from a Muslim background. They are actually killed by their own families. 2) What are some examples of Christian persecution in Egypt? There is no freedom of worship in Egypt. Christians are not allowed to build churches or even in some cases to remodel a church. Many times my father, who was a Baptist minister, tried to apply for a permit to build a church, but he was denied each time. My brother, who is also a Baptist minister, could not remodel his church in Alexandria. Important jobs are not given to Christians in Egypt. Many Christians are not treated with respect or dignity. 3) How do people in Egypt know if you are a Christian or not? This is very simple. In our picture ID, after the name comes that person’s religious preference. Add to that is the way we dress and the way we talk – even when we greet each other. Muslims and Christians use different greetings. 4) What were some of the biggest struggles you and your family faced in Egypt? I remember when I was in high school and my professor, Mr. Mohammed, deceived me in the classroom when he gave us Christians the freedom to speak. This was very unusual for a Christian in Egypt to be able to speak his mind because freedom of speech does not exist for Christians. He said, (Let’s all have freedom to speak, Christians and Muslims alike, and share what is on your heart.) Then he said, (Some people claim that Islam was spread in Egypt by the sword, but that is not true.) This was a discussion study of the story of the first caliph, Abu Buker, who was engaging in the first civil which is known as the War of Apostasy, which is when the true Muslims killed thousands of Muslims who left Islam after the death of Mohammed. I raised my hand to take my professor at his word. I told him that there are many verses in the Qur’an which clearly teaches that Islam was spread by the sword. I quoted him Quran 9:5 which, by the way, is known as the verse of the sword. “So when the forbidden months are passed, so kill the polytheists (Christians) wherever you find them, and take them [as captives], and besiege them, and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush, so if they repent and perform the prayer and give the legal alms, so leave their way free. Surely Allah is forgiving, merciful.” I told my professor, “This verse gives Christians only three choices: #1 to be killed, #2 to be taken as a slave, and #3 to repent and convert to Islam. So you tell me, sir, how can Islam spread by any other means than being spread by the sword?” I won the argument, but I lost my school. After a few days of harsh treatment of my professor picking on me even though there were 45 students in the classroom, I left the school and finished high school at home. My sister, on the hand, was threatened with death by the Muslims, but was protected in one case by the secret police. The reason she was hated was simply because she was a music teacher. Music in Islam is forbidden. When my brother was in college, he was kidnapped for three days by the Brotherhood, and he beaten physically. Both my brother and another Christian student were taken as hostages until President Sadat freed the blind sheik, Abd Al Rahman, who was arrested as the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood at the time. By the way, he is the guy who is in prison for life in the United States for his crime of trying to bomb the World Trade Center in 1993. Most likely he will be set free within the next few years by the Muslim President Barack Hussein Obama. There are many more storied that I can share with you, but for the same of time, I will stop here. 5) In your opinion, why do people want to come to the U.S.? Most Muslims who come to the United States are here to invade the United States, and the proof is very simple. When you read in the Quran in Chapter 2 and verse 218, (Surely those who have believed and those who emigrated and performed jihad1 for the sake of Allah, those hope for Allah’s mercy. And Allah is forgiving, merciful.) Allah inserted the word jihad to follow the word emigrate which is a holy war against infidels. In reality, many Muslims in America who receive citizenship – say on Monday when they stood up in the court in front of a judge and raised their hand pledging allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America – these same Muslims then meet with our legislators – say on Tuesday – asking them to replace the Constitution of the United States of America with Sharia (Islamic law). Even when Christians in the West try hard to ban Islamic law, sadly, a few Muslims with the help of some liberal judge will reverse the voice of the American people as in the case of the state of Oklahoma. Muslims may claim that they are here because they like freedom or democracy. Then we ask the question: why Muslims carry signs all over Europe which states in English, “Freedom go to hell” and (Democracy go to hell)? However, for Christians who come to the West, they come for freedom, escaping persecution, and seeking a better way of life. 6) Do you have confidence in President Obama to lead our country? I am shocked to hear this question from a fifteen year old student. The answer in very simple words is that President Obama has his social agenda which will make America a weak country. He is a terrible weak leader as he has shown in many ways as he traveled abroad apologizing to the world of how ignorant and arrogant Americans are, and then bowing down to the Saudi King, Abd Al Aziz, which is very astonishing for not even the Saudis bow to their king. In Islam it is not right for a man to bow down to another man. If President Obama can get his way, he will also destroy this great country’s defense. Also, he will continue to borrow money and spend it compulsively. Sadly, I believe that he won his second term because the American people still do not know who he is or what he is capable of doing to this great country. 7) Why do you believe that it is important for Americans to know the Quran? There are two contradictory opinions for what Islam is. Some may say that Islam is a loving, peaceful religion. Others say it is a barbaric, hateful cult. The only way to know the truth about Islam is to read the Quran. That is why I spent four years of my life to translate this book to an accurate, modern English translation, and that’s why our ministry, The Straight Way of Grace Ministry, sent a copy to each senator, congressman, governor, and the supreme court judges. Some claim that burning the Quran is a great insult to Islam, but I believe that reading the Quran will bring the end of Islam. 8) What intelligence can we benefit from reading the Quran? The only benefit Americans can learn from reading the Qur’an is saving America from destruction. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6 that (My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.) Muslims will continue to take over America as long as Americans do not know Islam. The only way to know Islam is simply by reading the Quran. 9) Do you believe your seminars have impacted people personally? Yes, indeed. There are thousands of Americans who now know the truth about Islam because in our seminars we simply read the verses of the Quran and the words of Mohammed in the Hadith. 10) How long have you been doing your seminars? I have been doing this now for 11 years as we travel throughout the United Stated of America, Canada, Asia, and Europe. Because of the technology that we have today, I minister daily to the world on radio programs, TV, and through the internet. 11) With you being one of the premier Christians leading the fight against Islam in the U.S., does it worry you how fast it is spreading across the world? It does worry me because the Islam which Muslims spread in the West is not the real Islam. It is what I call (baloney Islam.) Women in the West believe that Islam has a high respect for women. Men in the West believe that Islam is a loving, peaceful religion. Generally, people in the West believe that Muslims believe in Jesus, so on and so on. There is so much misguided information about Islam, and with the political correctness and fear in the West, few like myself are willing to stand and speak the truth for the love of God, for the love of America - this great country that we live in - and for the love of Muslims.

 
Question:
I am a Muslim woman, raised in Muslim family and community in China. I am NOT Uygher, as all Muslims in China are not. So, my question is, seeing so much (political) stuff on your web page, Where in the Bible did Jesus engage in politics, and when was Jesus ever (against) someone because of what they believed.
Answer:
Perhaps maybe you only saw one of my presentations on my website. We have 100's of programs and many seminars in which we do not talk about anything political, but you need to realize that our ministry is to reveal the truth about Islam. As you many know, Islam is not a religion but a cult which includes everything about Muslims life. Islam is more of a political movement than a spiritual movement. So, it is very important for our ministry to expose the Muslim agenda as well as the teaching of Islam in the West.    In regards to your question about Jesus and politics, I would like you to read the following article  by Rev. Mark Creech. : http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/creech/060314   As to your question about if Jesus was against anyone because of what they believed, there are many stories in the Bible where Jesus rejected what people believed, especially when that belief went against the will of the God the Father.  For example, Jesus kicked  the people who were selling animals out of the temple even though they did not think that they were doing anything wrong. I encourage you to read the Gospel, that is the books in the Bible of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  If you try to compare me to Jesus about my stand against Muslims, perhaps you need to understand the truth about Islam for if you had understood, notice I did not say read or memorized the Quran but simply understood the religion of Islam, you would realize that what I am doing is almost close to nothing. For how can I not speak of the danger of Islam when l believe that the Lord has appointed me to be a watchman and I see the end of freedom in the West is coming by the hand of those who believe and practice the religion of Islam.

 
Question:
This is another Question from the lady in China. You said in your responce that (Islam is a political system rather than a spiritual system), and before that, you called it a (cult) in your responce. The only religion I can really comment with some knowledge about is Islam. I am not well educated enough to comment scholarly on any other religion..so I do not... but logic and reason tell me that Islam is a good path for me. As you might know, there is a lot of difference in practice of Islam, especially comparing Asian Muslims (like the Cham, the Malays, Indonesians, the Chinese) and Arabian practice. I have studied the dialouge in which people who claim that Islam is a cult and a political system, and found that they quote...first the Hadiths, rather than the Quran...and when challenged on this, they claim that the Hadiths are the basis of practice in Islam. Secondly, they quote (scholars) and (ex Muslims) as sources, but I have yet to see one quote an Asian scholar, or an ancient Islamic scholar such as those who practice the Islam I learned do. So, I will assume that you belive I dont have the facts about Islam, and I will humbly allow you to teach me the (truth) about Islam.
Answer:
It is good to hear back from you. From your own words, I came to the conclusion that you do not know Islam for Islam is not what Asians believe or what some other Arabs believe. Islam is the teaching of Allah in the Qur'an and Mohammed in the Haddith, not one without the other. Some believe like yourself, that Islam is the teaching of the Qur'an alone without the Haddith.   So let me ask you some questions. What is the shahadah? The answer is: the statement by which a man or a woman becomes a Muslim. That is for a person to say, (I bear a witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear a witness that Mohammed is his messenger.) Muslim all over the world say the shahadah, but many of them do not know, like yourself, that the shahadah is not mentioned in the Qur'an; but it can be found in the Haddith. Another important fact is that a Muslim cannot be a Muslim without saying the shahadah. Another fact is that if Muslims comprehend what the shahadah states, they will realize that they are false witnesses, meaning that their shahadah (their witness) is a lie, for according to Islam a witness is a man or a woman who testifies of things he has seen by his eyes or heard by his ears or smelled by his nose or touched by his hand or tasted by his tongue, meaning that he or she must use some of the five senses as a witness. Shahadah (witness) in Islam is very complicated. In the case of inheritance, the Quran states that there must be two men as witnesses, and if there are not two men then one man and two women as stated in the following verse: Qur’an 2:282 …So if the debtor was mentally deficient or weak or cannot dictate, so let his friend dictate with fairness and call two witnesses from your men; so if there were not two men, so one man and two women of those among whom you are pleased for witnesses so that if one of them should make an error, the other may cause her to remember.   By the way, we learn from the Quran in Allah's words that women are not as smart as men because they forget. I can tell you more about this later. On the other hand, in the case of the witness for adultery, the Qur'an is very clear that the requirement of the number of witnesses is four eyewitnesses as stated in the following verse: Qur'an 4:15:   15 And for those who commit indecency among your women, so call four witnesses from among you against them. So if they testify, so detain them in their houses until death takes them or Allah makes another way for them.   and Qur'an 24:4:   4 And those who accuse virtuous women, then they cannot bring four witnesses, then scourge them with eighty stripes, and do not receive their testimony forever, for those are transgressors,…   In the previous verse, three eye witnesses were available to testify to the fact that Aisha, Mohammed s favorite wife (she was a six year old child when Mohammed married her when he was 51 years old) committed adultery. Their shahadah was rejected because it was not the right number. There must be four eye witnesses. Add to that, not only four eye witnesses who see a man and a woman in bed, even if they are naked, but the witnesses must have seen a full intercourse. In Qur'an 53:32:    32 Those who avoid big sins and sexual immorality except Al-lemam. Surely your lord is broad in the forgiveness. Al-lemam here means all that a man can do with a woman except intercourse. That is not adultery but in Allah's words considered to be a small sin. So even the four eye witnesses to an adulterous relationship requires more detail than just seeing a man and a woman in bed. So if three of them saw the actual intercourse, but the fourth did not, then this was not a true witness. So now my question to you, my dear friend, is how can you be a Muslim without saying the shahadah (the statement of witness) which is the first pillar in Islam if you do not believe in the Haddith when this statement exists in the Haddith and not in the Quran? How can you say the shahadah if you have never seen Mohammed, touched Mohammed, heard Mohammed, smelled or tasted Mohammed? Do you understand now what I mean by stating that the first pillar makes Muslims false witnesses?   How about prayer, the second important pillar in Islam? Where can we find in the Qur'an that Muslims pray five times a day? Don't waste your time because you will never find it there. The answer is very simple. It is in the Haddith which you choose not to believe in. It is amazing as we grew up in the Muslim world, we knew all of these facts; but sadly, foreign Muslims like yourself, do not have a clue as to what we are talking about. By the way, when you read the Haddith, which teaches the five prayers of the day and comprehend it, you will stop praying completely because there are so many errors and nonsense in the Haddith.   I believe there are two reasons why Muslims do not believe in the Haddith. 1. Simply because they do not know about it. 2. They know it and are embarrassed about it. For example, some Muslims do not know that Mohammed married Aisha when he was 51 years old and she was 6 years old. Others who believe in the Haddith read Aisha's own words, and she said that the Prophet of Allah, may Allah's prayer and Allah's peace be on him, married me when I was six years old and had sex with me when I was nine years old. This is the Haddith of Aisha from the Correct Haddith of Muslim # 1422 and here is the link: http://www.dorar.net/enc/hadith?skeys=%D8%AA%D8%B2%D9%88%D8%AC%D9%86%D9%8A+%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%86%D8%A8%D9%8A+%D9%88%D8%A7%D9%86%D8%A7+%D8%A8%D9%86%D8%AA+%D8%B3%D8%AA+%D8%B3%D9%86%D9%8A%D9%86&xclude=°ree_cat0=1       That is why some Muslims reject the Haddith. Other Muslims defend the Haddith, and they will say that Prophet Mohammed did not have a sexual relationship with Aisha until she turned nine. Some say that girls matured at an earlier age because of the heat in Saudi Arabia while others say that Aisha was fat and that caused her to mature at a younger age. But if you ask these Muslims what Mohammed was doing during these three years with Aisha, their answer will shock you for they had no problem with Mohammed molesting this child by simply touching her in her private parts with his private parts, only from outside, without having real intercourse. Some will say so what - all men in Mohammed's day were marrying little children wives and that was the normal culture in those days. If all people of some prophet's day were living ungodly, would that give permission for the prophet to live like the rest of the people? Now some Muslims will lie and give Aisha an older age, some say she was 24 and some say she was 36 and so on and so on. Since you believe in the Qur'an, I would like to share a verse in Qur'an 65:4 where Allah said:   4And for those of your women who despair of the menstruation, if you doubt [that they may be pregnant], their prescribed waiting time is three months, as well as for those who have not yet begun menstruation. And as for the pregnant ones, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah, he will make his affair the easiest.   Do you understand what this verse says? In case you do not know, let me help you. Allah here is saying that if a Muslim divorces his wife (and let’s say she is 45 years old), and the husband does not know if she is pregnant or not, for as you know in those days they did not have pregnancy tests, that is why Allah in his wisdom told the Muslim men that after the divorce is accomplished, women must wait three months in which they cannot remarry so that in case she is pregnant the ex-husband (not the mother) has the right to keep the child. If the wife is pregnant, the ex-husband must pay her to breastfeed the child, that is, obviously, if they agree on the price. However, if they disagree, then the ex-husband has the right to take the child from the mother, and then another woman would breastfeed his child for him. We can see this clearly in the following verse in Qur'an 65:6:   6 Settle them where you settle according to your means. Do not harm them to make it difficult for them. And if they are pregnant, so spend on them until they give birth. So if they breastfeed for you, so give them their wages and consult among yourselves with kindness. And if you meet with obstacles, so then let another breastfeed him.   How about the little children wives? What happened if they got divorced? Still, as you see in the bold statement in Qur'an 65:4, Allah also stated that they must wait three months in case they were pregnant. Yes, they have not yet begun menstruation, but what if the husband somehow got them pregnant before the divorce. You may say that you don't believe in the Haddith and you don't believe that Mohammed was a child molester, a sex offender, or what is known as a pedophile. The question I have for you here is why did Allah in the Qur'an allow men to marry and have sex with little children who had not yet begun to menstruate?   Now I would like to go back to the five times of prayer a day. The Haddith is very clear that Mohammed made up a fairy tale, and here is its summary. He was taken from his house to Jerusalem in the blink of an eye. Then he rode on his supersonic mule to the seventh heaven. He saw Adam crying in the first heaven. He met with Moses in the fourth heaven. Alone, he was able to meet with Allah in the seventh heaven who told him that he must ask his people, the Muslims, to pray 50 times a day. However, Moses advised him in the fourth heaven to ask Allah for a reduction, so Allah changed it to 45 prayers a day. Still Moses said that this was too much. Ten times Mohammed met with Allah, and very time Allah cut five prayers off. Mohammed ended up with five prayers, and then he returned to his bed from the seventh heaven and his bed was still warm. That is why Muslims pray five times a day.   If you know all the lies in this story, I promise you, you will not pray another day - not five times or even one time. For example, was there any witness to this wonderful miracle? The answer is no. However, Muslims will say that the Qur'an said so. The answer is in Qur'an 17:1:   1Praise be to him who took his servant by night from the forbidden mosque to the farthest mosque, who we have blessed that which surrounds him, that we might show him some of our signs. Surely he is the hearing, the seeing.   All the prophets who performed miracles in the Bible had a witness, but in the case of Mohammed, there was no witness. The Bible is very clear. In heaven there is no crying or tears. So how can Mohammed see Adam crying in heaven? By the way, did you notice that Mohammed exaggerated a little bit when he said that Adam was 90 feet tall? How in the world was Mohammed able to meet Moses in the fourth heaven and Allah in the seventh heaven if the Bible clearly teaches that there are only three heavens - the heaven of the birds and airplanes, the heaven of the sun, the moon, and the stars, and the heaven of heavens known in the Bible as the third heaven? But don't worry. Not only the Haddith said there are seven heavens, the Quran which you believe in states that there are seven heavens and seven earths as written in Qur'an 65:12: Allah is who has created seven heavens and the same number of earths. The divine command comes down through them all so that you may know that Allah has might over all things and that Allah indeed surrounds all things in knowledge.   I have one more question. How fast was this supersonic mule of Mohammed's? Did you notice that the Haddith is very clear that Mohammed's bed upon his return was still warm? This mule must have been going real fast, a million times faster than the angels. Did you know that the Qur'an said that the distance between heaven and earth is - for the angels - equal to 1,000 years as stated in Qur'an 32:5?   5 He arranges the affair from the heaven to the earth. Then it ascends to him in a day, its duration was one thousand years from what you count.   Wait a minute. It might take a longer time than that as stated in Quran 70:4: The angels and the spirit ascend to him in a day; its duration was fifty thousand years.   It does not matter anyway, 1,000 years or 50,000. What difference does a few thousand years make? That is why I told you earlier that if you understand the fairy tales of the Qur'an and the Haddith, you will not pray one more time to Allah.   Not as you stated in your email, notice that I am using the Qur'an and the Haddith. In my next email I will quote more from the Quran. You stated in your email, (The only religion I can really comment with some knowledge about is Islam.) You also said that (but logic and reason tell me that Islam is a good path for me.) In my next email, I will respond to these two statements.   I would like to end this email by sharing with you some good news. God loves you. You and I are sinners. The wages of our sin, the Bible says, is death, but because God loves us so much He sent His Son who took our place on the cross. He died and was buried. Then He rose from the dead on the third day. If you believe that He died as a substitute for you and accept the free gift of eternal life, your sins will be forgiven, and you will spend eternity in heaven. I know that this is not what you believe as a Muslim. And if you ask yourself why you do not believe this, the answer is very simple - because Mohammed said so. However, have you ever investigated Mohammed? Will you reject the love of God as stated in the Old Testament prophecies written hundreds and even thousands of years before the coming of Christ? Will you reject the love of Jesus because of a lie given by a sinful man who was a child molester, a sex offender, a womanizer, and a prophet pretender? Perhaps you have some questions about what I shared with you about this email. Why not write them back to me? I will continue to respond to your emails.

 
Question:
What can I do about getting the school books changed in America that tell lies about Islam? who can I call?
Answer:
First of all, you need to check your school textbooks, especially Social Studies, History, and Geography. Simply look in the index for the words "Islam" and "Muslim". Then, contact the rest of the parents who care about their children. Then together in unity, contact the school board and demand the removal of these books from your school. You cannot do this by yourself. You will be laughed at and mocked. You will need the backing of other parents to accomplish this task. thank you for your boldness and willingness to do whatever it takes.

 
Question:
If I heard correctly on your broadcast, the ancestors of the Muslim faith was Keturah and not Hagar. Then that would mean it was not from Ha gar s son Ishmael, but from Keturah s son Median that our modern day Islam religion came from? Just curious.
Answer:
Yes, the Arabs do come from Keturah, not from just Midian but also from her other sons. Here is the list of the names of her sons from the Bible: Genesis 25:1-5  -  Abraham again took a wife, and her name was Keturah. 2 And she bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. 3 Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim. 4 And the sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah. 5 And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac. 6 But Abraham gave gifts to the sons of the concubines which Abraham had; and while he was still living he sent them eastward, away from Isaac his son, to the country of the east.

I sent you a page from Britannica about sea salt. I look forward to your comments. (Sorry we don't have the page here just Usamas answer.)
Answer:
When I read all of the numbers of 1.5 - 2 billion or 542 millions of years, I can't help but to laugh for these people who come up with these numbers forgot to add what time of the day this began.  Was it 3:05 in the afternoon or 1:27 in the morning? It is nothing but hogwash. These are professional liars who were not there but deceive people like yourself, and obviously you believe these people without any doubt because you allow Satan, the god of this world, to blind your eyes, your heart, and your soul. Can you explain to me why Niagara Falls is where it is right now? If the numbers concerning salt is true, do you know where Niagara Falls' edge should be right now?  Perhaps way, way beyond the state of Michigan. It would be for sure past the source of the Great Lakes.   See what the psalmist in Psalm 14: 1-3. 1 The fool has said in his heart, (There is no God.) They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. 2 The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. 3 They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.

 
Question:
I have been in much distress through this past night..I have had a wonderful opportunity of late to be able to speak to some very sweet and polite young friends from Calcutta India and 1 young man from Bangladesh,named Ata.. There is somewhat of a language barrier.but he seems to have a good understanding of what I tell him about the love of christ,and he tells me he is not muslim,but he often tells me about it,and it was the faith of his mother whom he misses..I have explained to Him many things,qnd have been trying to get him a Bible in his language..I recently sent him this wonderful website of yours,and he sent me message that said (you hurt me) Without explanation...My Facebook page is my metod of reaching hopefully many people for christ,because Ata had sent me names of many of his friends that I speak to also...my hope being if I could just reach one for Christ I would reach many..some of the young men are communist,marxist,and some are into the New Age Judaism,that I recently heard about...I feel that Our Lord has called all of us to share His love despite criticism and even when our head is on the block,and the hatchet is raised,but an feeling like I may have overstepped myself..I am trying to be loving because I sincerely care about them,but maybe I have been too outspoken,I don't know how to correct it.I know in my heart what is right,but I don't want to hurt anyone...I need help..I want to learn more about Islam through Quran...the Bible says of course all false gods are Satan,Allah is a false god...I think this is what upset him,because of his mother.tell me what to do...please and I ask in Jesus Holy name,and many thanks also.
Answer:
I believe that this young man is really a Muslim, and he did not tell you the truth. When he saw our website, he was faced with the truth about Islam, and truth really hurts. if he was not a Muslim, he would not be upset but be concerned about those who believe in Islam. Do not be discouraged for you cannot send the unsaved to hell #2.  There is only one hell, and don't forget, only the truth can set people free.

 
Question:
I have enjoyed your teachings on VCY immensely. I have especially enjoyed your teachings showing the corruption of the Quran. Our church sponsors 4 missionaries who use The CAMEL Method of evangelism to Muslims where they use the Qur'an to show Jesus. Jesus is not found in the Qur'an, only the counterfeit Isa. We are working hard to inform our pastor and discredit this method. I do want to mention one thing to Usama. I heard Usama mention that one or two verses in the Qur'an points to the Bible being inspired prior to Mohammed, or something like that. Usama gave validity to one or two verses in the Quran. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis says we should not use any source to prove the Bible's authority because by doing so we give more authority to the other source. In other words, we should not use something else to prove anything in the Bible because that means that source has more authority than the Bible. Hope that makes sense. As you have said many times, the Qur'an is a counterfeit Bible with many contradictions and abrogation. It is demonically inspired and I would not want to use it in any type of evangelism unless it would be to show the Quran contradicts itself and is corrupted.   Here is a book review of The CAMEL Method. The book review is not favorable at all toward the CAMEL Method, but is gracious toward the guy who came up with the method. http://sites.silaspartners.com/cc/article/0,,PTID314526_CHID598014_CIID2482670,00.html
Answer:
I completely agree with you and Brother Ken Ham. The Camel Method is a poor presentation for it tries to use the Quran to prove to the Muslim about the Gospel of Jesus. But in fact, the name Jesus is not mentioned in the Quran but Isa who is not the Son of God or the son of Allah and who did not die on the cross - so it is actually an empty circle. However, on the other hand, I use the Quran when I minister to the Muslims after assuring them that I do not believe in it as  - step number 1 -  for Mohammed declared in the Qur'an that the Bible is the Word of God, which had never been corrupted and will never change. Because Muslims believe in their Qur'an, they must believe that the Bible is the perfect Word of God.    Then step number 2 -  I use the Qur'an to disprove the Qur'an to be the Word of God. Obviously, that is as we show hundreds of error and contradictions, which is now available in our new two volume book, Exposing the Truth about the Quran, The Revelation of Error.   Then we lead the Muslim to the truth of the Gospel which is step number 3. If we do not take these easy three steps and just expose the error and contradictions in the Quran and convince the Muslim that the Quran and Islam are false, we may lose them for good to atheism. Also, before I show my Muslim friends that they are lost in Islam, it is very important to let them know about the truth of the Gospel as mentioned in step number 1.  Don't forget, when I use the Quran, I emphasize to my Muslim friends that I do not believe in it.   God bless you.  Check our new book out, Exposing the Truth about the Quran at http://www.thestraightway.org/RevelationError.asp

 
Question:
1)      If it is understood that the Quran ultimately finds its origin from Satan himself (or perhaps one of his demons) as you have implied by pointing out the Satan is able to disguise himself as an angel of light, and as I do believe, is it therefore dangerous for people to read/study? This point of refutation did come up in our class as one believer present who had previously read another version of the Qur’an began to offer words of warning to the group about the Quran. I am not sure if he was saved at the time or not.  I did not give any warning to less discerning believers, young Christians, or perhaps lost people who were present, or to those present who believe they are saved but are actually lost!  Instead I exhorted them to take action by buying the Qur’an and studying it, after seeing the necessity of a true objective translation,  the lack of understanding in general here in the West regarding the Islam faith, and the necessity of studying it to refute it from God s Word.   Is it irresponsible of me to encourage a mixed maturity group to buy a Quran and study it and compare the Bible? Here I should point out that I did not teach them to study any Quran, but very specifically your translation of the Quran, and that for many good reasons, not the least of these are your bold print comments and references to the Bible inserted between the text of the Quran itself. As I mentioned earlier, we showed the 3 minute (commercial) in class explaining why this Quran is the best choice for us to study.   In response to this, I said that I did think it was a valid warning, then  I did quote Col. 2:8 (See to it no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ), and that was the end of it at that point.  But someone may counter that verse application by pointing out that it’s better to stay away from the Qur’an entirely to avoid being taken captive. How would you answer that?      If I remember from the conference in Branson, the most critical information (on DVD) to get into people’s hands is the Freedom or Surrender DVD. Is that still true?
Answer:
1.There is no danger in reading my translation of the Quran because I point out and expose the lies in the Quran. As a matter of fact, if a Muslim will read my Quran they will leave Islam and if you read the last 2 sections of my Quran, there is a great opportuinty for them to become a christian. There is no age limit, for Muslims are teaching our children Islam (hogwash isalm) in our school from kindergarten on up. Reading my Qur'an is not reading it to become a Muslim but to learn the truth about this cult.  It is like studying and learning about a disease - we are not learning about a disease to become sick but to learn how to cure it.   2. Yes, Freedom or Surrender still shows what President Obama is doing to America politically. All of the DVDs reveal what Islam does to a country.

 
Question:
How can you explain that Jesus Christ is Lord to Muslim, because they do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
Answer:
According to the Bible, God is Triune - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  God is not the Father alone nor the Father and the Son, nor the Father and the Holy Spirit, or the Son and the Holy Spirit, but God is the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,  3 Persons together.  God the Father is God. God the Son is God. God the Holy Spirit is God. Some may consider this to be a mystery, but I believe it is how God describes Himself in His word, the Bible.  God declares that He is Triune.  That is why we come up with the expression - Trinity.  If God choose to declare Himself as ten persons, then we would call Him Tenity.  It is not for us to tell God what He can be and what He cannot be.  In the Book of Genesis, Chapter 1:1-3, God declared that He is plural, for in the beginning Elohim is plural for God. In verse 2 we see the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit.  In verse 3 we see the Word of God, the Creator of all things as God spoke His Word in Genesis 1:3, 6, 9, 18, and 24 -creation came to exist.  This Word of God was from the beginning, the Creator of all things, who is God - as we see it in John 1:1-3 who became flesh as it is written in John 1:14.  Jesus is not a prophet or a teacher or a good man, and Christians mistakenly worshiped Him and made Him a God, but Jesus is God who became flesh as stated in Philippians 2:5-11.    By the way, Allah in the Quran said the same thing in Qur'an 4:171 -  O people of the book, do not exaggerate in your religion and do not speak against Allah, except the truth. Surely the Christ ‘Isa (Jesus), son of Mary, is only a messenger of Allah and his word, which he cast to Mary, and a spirit from him.   Notice that not one Muslim yet is able to answer the question why they reject trinity if Allah in the above verse declared that he has a spirit and word, which is Jesus. Obviously Mohammed did not know what he was talking about. He was just making up poetry.

 
Question:
Looking at the parable of the King of Babylonia of Isa. 14, specifically verse 12.   “How you have fallen from the heavens, O glowing morning star; been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of nations?”    I find a deeper meaning than the common held understanding of this verse. The term, (heylel) [ eliyl  - idol ] in Hebrew refers to the star Venus or the son of darkness [ laylah ]. Venus and Athar appear to have the same meaning. In the Babylonian / Thamud gods, safaitic [ northern arabic? ] they use the name (halah”)and in southern Arabic (?) they use the term (allah) having the same meaning.  This appears as though Venus and Allah may possibly one and the same pagan star or moon idol? Please correct, if there is a error in this, please enlighten.
Answer:
Mohammed did not invent the word Allah for God . Christians who lived in Muhamed days believed in God to be called Allah . this is actually a Hebrew word which is alohiem according to Mohammed teachings of the Koran and the Hadith is not with the Moon god leh When Mohammed mentioned a law in the Koran and in the Hadith he ment the God of the Bible and the proof is he always links Allah to Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all of the biblical names but in reality Allah the god of Mohammed is nothing but Satan himself for as we read In the Quran chapter 1:1 Allah is known to be the god of the worlds. according to the Bible he is Satan Mohammed also stated int the Quran that Allah is the best deciecer , see Quran 3:54 and 8:30 (and Allah is also the one who leads people astray) see Quran 35:8. And he desires to fill hell with people see Quran 38:85. I personally do not believe that Allah is the moon god because you cannot support it anywhere in the Quran.

 
Question:
The following answer is in regard to questions from people who want to know what to do when they meet with the Muslims from Islamic Centers.
Answer:
Quran 9:5, The Verse of the Sword, abrogates  all the soft Mecci verses.  9:5 replaces the peaceful  verses with the killing verses.  Muslims are instructed in the Quran that when the forbidden months are past, there are 3 choices for infidels -   kill them, take them as captive, or they must repent and return to Islam. Therefore, now there is no peace with the infidels because Allah is no longer merciful. A. 1.       Ask the Muslim man ----Are all Christian’s infidels?  (He will say that they are not infidels.)   Then ask him to read Quran 5:72 and 5:73.  Here Allah says that all Christians who believe that Jesus is God’s Son are infidels.  In verse 73, infidels are those who believe in the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.   2.       Ask:  What is the punishment of infidels?  Ask him to read Quran 47:4.  Christians and Jews are infidels.   (Engage in war) is mentioned in the Quran 79 times, and it is interpreted by Muslims scholars to mean perform jihad.  Perform jihad is mentioned in the Qur’an 31 times and is interpreted by Muslim scholars to mean engage in war, not internal struggle.  Did Mohammed and early Muslims and Muslims all over the world misunderstand what jihad means?  Only the Muslims in America say that jihad is a struggle to try to deceive the American people. Quran 5:51 says not to take the Christians and Jews as friends.  The reason Allah does not want the Muslims to take the Christians and Jews as friends is because they are infidels and Muslims are instructed to kill the infidels (the People of the Book) and terrorized them.  They are to kill the men and keep the women (to rape them) and the children --- 9:29, 33:26-27. 3.       Is the cutting the hand of the thief culture or Islam?  He will say culture.  Then ask him to read what Allah say in Qur’an 5:38. Therefore it is not culture.  Sharia is not the same law as American law.     These are just a few of the questions that need to be asked and exposed in such meetings.   Take a video camera with you and tape the entire meeting  and send us the footage.  They will not let you do it.  But if for some reason they do, please send us the footage either way.

 
Question:
Comment from a Crosstalk program with Usama: The Dangers of Islam, Part 2; Another lier, ignorant and islamophobe. Please tell me where exactly is this mosque in Cairo, Egypt. I am Egyptian and really wants to know. Where did get the idea that honor killing is from Islam? Again, here is my cell phone 419-344-4032. Please give me a call if you think that you even know the difference between Islam and Muslims. If you are really Egyptian and lived there, give me the name of the school that teaches the religion of Islam to both Muslim and Christian. Just FYI, during the religion class, Muslims go to an Islamic class and Christians go to their own religion class.
Answer:
Response to comment. Perhaps if you want to know who is the liar who taught you to lie, he is Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, who said in Mosnad Ahamed hadith # 26315 where he (Mohammed) said, (It is lawful to lie in three cases: a man to his wife that she will be please with him, or at a time of war because war is deception, or to make peace between people.) This means your prophet Mohammed taught you to lie to your family and your enemies and your friends. I think that covers everybody. By the way, the Bible says in Rev.21:8 that liars will go to hell. Think about that, my dear Muslim friend. As for honor killing, let me teach you about that. According to Qur’an 6:151…(And do not kill the soul which Allah forbids (the Muslim soul) except with a just cause…) See also 17:33 and 25:68. You may ask: what is a just cause? To know the answer, we read in Bukhari, volume 9, #17 where Mohammed said, (The blood of a Muslim cannot be shed except in three cases for murder, adultery, and the one who becomes an Apostate (leaves) from Islam.)

 
Question:
I hope this does not sound like an ignorant or ridiculous question, but I was wondering if Usama might be willing to give his take on how far we can go to reach out to our Muslim neighbors or make them feel comfortable within our congregations should they decide to visit or join. Since scripture does not speak specifically against certain specific Muslim customs, would Usama be opposed to letting a Muslim background believer indefinitely retain some of the rituals that he grew up with? By way of comparison, there are Christians of Jewish background who still wear Yarmulke's when they meet during their Sabbath services. Likewise, if a convert from Muslim background wanted to join a Christian church would he necessarily have to stop wearing Muslim garb and, or would it be wrong to discourage him from bringing in a prayer rug? I hope this question does not seem absurd because it seems like it could become an issue that would need to be addressed someday. Would the solution be to let Muslim background believers keep these practices but meet in a separate building on a separate day like Friday instead of Sunday? Any insight in this area would be much appreciated.
Answer:
If you are talking about a Muslim neighbor who is not a Christian, it doesn’t matter.  A Muslim woman can wear her hijab or Muslim men can wear their attire. However, if he or she becomes a Christian, they put everything about Islam aside, including their names. A former Muslim woman would not wear her hijab. Former Muslims would not meet separately and not on a Friday.  They would meet with their fellow Christians on Sunday together. Jews and Christians have the same roots.  I do not have a problem with the Jewish people wearing their yarmulke. Jewish tradition is within the foundation of the Christian faith.  However, Islam is anti-Christian and has nothing to do with Christianity, for where will you draw the line?  You must get rid of the whole thing - Muslim practices.

 
Question:
My question has to do with Christmas and Easter please. Some say both are no Christian in origin and we should not celebrate such things. They say God has provided many Biblical celebrations that mainstream Christians tend to ignore. Any advice and insight would be appreciated about what celebrations honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and which celebrations grieve His heart.
Answer:
Although the Bible does not say anything about Christmas and we do not know the exact day of the birth of our Lord, Christians choose to celebrate the birth of Christ.  And there are two dates has been put aside to celebrate the birth of Christ, January 7 or December 25.  I personally believe that neither date is correct I believe Jesus was not born in the winter, because the scripture declares at the time of the birth of Jesus the shepherds were watching over their flocks in the fields which does not happen in winter.  But if I would celebrate my wife and son’s birthdays and other family members birthdays, surely I will celebrate the birth of my Lord any date set aside.  Notice when great grandma or great grandpa dies, we no longer celebrate their birthdays, but our Lord and Savior died and rose again, so He is alive for ever more. That is why we celebrate His birthday. We also celebrate the resurrection of our Lord which is Sunday, not once a years as some do, which is also okay, but it is every Sunday as we gather with the rest of the body of believers to worship Him. If you desire to celebrate any of the Old Testament feasts, I would not hold it against you, but the scriptures say not to let anyone judge you according to Col. 2:16, (Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:)

 
Question:
I recently watched a movie put out by Vision Video called, (More than Dreams.) Maybe you've heard of it. I've heard of people in Muslim countries having no contact with Christians  or the Bible, they a dream or vision of Jesus and they become a Christian. It seems amazing, if they are truly turning to Christ. I didn't hear any mention of repentance as of yet, I have 2 more stories to watch. I know that Satan can appear as an angel of light, but I also know that the great missionary to America  Samuel Morris, had a vision that brought him to the cross as well. He was truly sold out to Lord. What do you and Usama think of this. Or what scriptures can I look at to validate this. I sort of think of the Apostle Paul and the road to Damascus. Do you think this is the similar? Do you two know of anyone who came to Christ this way? I'd really appreciate your insight. I don't want to prejudge nor do I want to  promote anything that is not of God.
Answer:
These dreams are true.  I have met and translated several of these dreams of Muslims who became Christians into English so I know these are true.  

 
Question:
from a Muslim- the living jesus in the four canonicle gospels never spoke of polythiest god.so pls explain to me the relationship of christianity to pagan doctrines like trinity,chritmas,esther.etc
Answer:
Perhaps you are as ignorant of Christianity as your Mohammed was. So you try to insult people with the same tone of Mohammed. The Christians' belief is not a polytheist belief for Christians believe in one God who declared Himself throughout the Bible and in your Qur'an as a triune God. That is what theologians call Trinity. No pagan exists who believes in the Christian Trinity which is one God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The trinity which Mohammed rejected in the Qur'an is father, mother, and son which you can read about in Qur'an 5:116      116And when Allah said, (O ‘Isā, son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as two gods, other than Allah'?) He said, "Praise be unto you. It is not for me that I say what is not true for me; if I had said it, so indeed, you know it. You know what is in my soul, and I do not know what is in your soul. Surely, you are the knower of the unseen.   This verse is clear evidence that Mohammed and his god, Allah, and his Isa, all are ignorant of the true God of the Bible and Jesus. The true Trinity is God the Father, and His eternal Word who became flesh, Jesus Christ, and His eternal spirit, the Holy Spirit. Let me give you a verse that Mohammed put in the Qur'an which shows his ignorance and his confusion. It is Qur'an 4:171.     171O People of the Book, do not exaggerate in your religion and do not speak against Allah, except the truth. Surely the Christ ‘Isā, son of Mary, is only a messenger of Allah and his word, which he cast to Mary, and a spirit from him. So believe in Allah and his messengers, and do not say, (Three.) Cease; it is better for you. Surely Allah is only one god. Praise be to him that there would be to him a son. To him what is in the heavens and what is on the earth, and Allah is a sufficient guardian.   Notice that Mohammed here declared the word of Allah, the spirit of Allah, and Allah - that is the trinity which Mohammed denied in the same verse when he stated,  "and do not say, 'Three.'"  As for Jesus' declaration of Trinity, it is all over the 4 Gospels. Read John 1:1. The Scripture is very clear that the Word of God is God, the Word of God is the Creator of all things, John 1:3, and the Word of God is Jesus, John 1:14. Jesus is not a man that Christians made a God, but He is God who emptied Himself and became a man, that is to die on the cross. God the Father gave Him a name above all names. Every knee will bow down to Jesus, even the knees of your Mohammed. Read Philippians 2:6-11. Not only does the New Testament declare the Trinity, but it is all over the Bible beginning with Genesis Chapter 1. Here we learn about Gods (plural ) as declared in the Hebrew word Elohim in Genesis 1:1. In Genesis 1:2 we know about the spirit  of God. The Word of God, the Creator of all things is in the rest of Genesis Chapter 1 in verses 3, 6, 9, 11, 14 20, 24, and 26.   If you are interested, I can share with you more verses throughout the Bible, both Old and New Testaments which declare the true triune God of the Bible, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Just ask in your next email.

 
Question:
Same Muslim as before - was jesus forsaken by god when he said ''father why have you forsaken me''on the cross?then relate this to your hope of salvation.
Answer:
It is amazing how Muslims do not bother to learn things about Christianity or the Bible by seeking scholars interpretation to verses in the Bible as I have been doing the last 30 years or so by reading the Qur'an and its interpretation by Muslim scholars, which I found myself lying by calling them scholars for I believe they are dumbers. If Muslims will ask us Christians any question concerning our belief or faith in a good manner, we will have no problem to do so. We will be very pleased to do so. But the foolishness of Muslims can be shown not only in the simple facts of the Christian faith but also in their sarcastic questions as they mock Christianity. The question could be asked, "What did Jesus mean or why did Jesus say or would you please explain the statement of Jesus in Matthew 27:46.   46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Obviously, because Muslims are ignorant of the book of Psalms even though the Qur'an mentions the word Zabor, which is the wrong name for Psalms, many times throughout its pages. If you have a chance to read Psalm 22, you will not ask this question, for Psalm 22 is the prophecy which I relate on its verses, my hope of salvation, for here I read the prophecy of Prophet David whom Muslims believe in without having a clue to what his prophecy was about. For if they knew David and his prophecy, they would never believe in Mohammad and his propaganda. Have you ever read Psalm 22? I encourage you to do so. It begins with the same words of Jesus. Here is verse 1.      1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? So I believe deep in my heart that when Jesus was on the cross if He had 5 more minutes, He would have recited the rest of Psalm 22 to tell those who killed Him  - here I am on the cross fulfilling the prophecy of my servant David. For all those who saw Jesus scorned Him, shoot out the lip, shook their heads, they also said that He trusted on the Lord to save Him so let us see if He is delighted in Him. Read Psalm 22:7-8. On the cross they surrounded Jesus as if they were strong bulls. They gaped upon Him with their mouths.  Read Psalm 22:13. His bones were out of joint, His heart melted like wax, He became very weak, His tongue cleaved into His jaw, they pierced His hands and His feet, you can count His bones, they parted His garment, and they cast lots for His clothes. Read Psalm 22:12-18. All of these prophecies were fulfilled when He was on the cross as we read in Matthew 27 and as you read the rest of the Gospels, Mark, Luke, and John. And more and more of prophecies were written about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and they were all fulfilled, not only through the life of our Lord,  but on that cross and in His resurrection. If you want to know more about the prophecies about His coming, birth, life, crucifixion, death, and resurrection which was written hundreds of years before the coming of our Lord and Savior which we have over 300 of prophecies throughout the Old Testament, I would be pleased to send them to you if you ask politely. For I believe in Jesus' words when he said, "Do not throw your pearls to pigs" in Matthew7:6. 

 
Question:
Same Muslim as before.- you say you love Christ and love people but you seem so controlling and demanding. you are very strong willed and are trying to persuade people with logic which is not the Christian way. Let go and learn to love your enemies irregardless of what they believe espouse and teach. when you do you will see a transformation in your ministry.
Answer:
Thank you for your letter. if you have a child who is playing with a gun loaded with bullets, even if he is just playing by himself, If you truly love him surly you will rush to him doing everything that you can to remove the gun from his or her hand. If an enemy has a gun loaded with bullets and he totally believes that he must kill you and your children to love him and to love your children you must do everything you can to take this gun out of his hand. At the same time you will do everything to remove your children and yourself from the scene. Christianity is truth and very logical, the more you know about the cult of Islam and Muslims the more you will see that I truly love Muslims and people in general.

 
Question:
The same muslim as before - The god of christianity murdered his beloved son to save his creatures.poor jesus of the christianity was an unwilling victim,at the time of the murder he has been complaining and crying blood like a coward,because it was his father's will to die not his,even women sometimes could be brave if they are perishing for sake of their children.finally this poor jesus hopefully waiting for god's help after he had prayed was forsaken to perish shamefully.my question is 'can the salvation of the universe depends on the gruesome murder of this jesus'?. jesus was crying because he has forgotten the contract he had with his god.jesus of christianity is god's unwilling victim of murder for salvation.some pagan god's were born december 25th and they died for the sins of mankind.christmas which is dec. 25th is the 100% prove that salvation in chritianity is false and is of pagan origin.so there was a serious marriage between chritianity and paganism.we muslim are not worshipers of a trinity god.jesus himself says worship God who is my father and your father,the jews and jesus for thausands of years were ignorant of this enigmatic triad pagan god.no wonder christian's faith depends on the murder of jesus and the triad gods.it is also clear that jesus was murdered because of the message he brought and not for the salvation of mankind.
Answer:
If you continue to write to me with out any respect as how Mohammed spoke to Jews and Christians in his days I will simply block you from my emails. As to your question, Jesus is God (the Word of God who is God-John 1:1-3 and 14.) who cam to this world to die for our sin. God the Father and God the Holy Spirit did not force (poor Jesus) to die on the cross, but Jesus himself gave up his life for our sins. He said in John 10:18 (No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.)  You do not know that your Qur'an 4:171 Surely the Christ ‘Isā, son of Mary, is only a messenger of Allah and his word, which he cast to Mary, and a spirit from him. this verse declares the Trinity of the Christian faith as I have written to you previously. Allah, his word, his spirit. Ask Mohammed or his angel Gabriel to explain this to you. For almost 600 years Christianity spread all over the world as it is the exact fulfilment for hundreds of the prophesy which were written hundreds of years earlier. Not one historian denies the truth of the death and Resurrection of Jesus, even Mohammed by accident told us in the Quran, that Jesus died. Here are a few verses from your Qur'an to think about. 1- Quran 3:185 every soul tastes the death. Why not Jesus? 2- Quran 5:70 Indeed, we took the covenant of the children of Israel and sent messengers to them. Whenever a messenger came to them with what their soul did not desire, a group they denied and a group they are killing. Can you name for me one messenger from the Qur'an whom the Jews killed? 3- Qur'an 4:155 So because of their breaking of their covenant and being infidels in the verses of Allah and their killing of the prophets unjustly and their saying, "Our hearts are uncircumcised." Yet Allah has taba'a (repent) on it for their infidelity so that they will not believe except for a few. Can you name for me one prophet from the Quran that the Jews killed? 4- Quran 19:33 Isa (Jesus) said (And the peace be on me the day I was born and the day I die and the day I am raised alive.)  Here Jesus prophesied that he will die in the future tense. 5-Quran 3:55 When Allah said, (O ‘Isā (Jesus), surely I am causing you to die, and I am raising you up to me and purifying you from those who became infidels and make those who follow you above those who became infidels, until the resurrection day. Then to me is your return, so I will judge between you about what you were differing.)  Here Allah is telling Jesus he will die in the present tense. 6- Qur'an 5:117 Isa (Jesus) said ( I did not tell them except what you had commanded me, 'That serve Allah, my lord and your lord, and I was a witness among them as long as I was with them. So when you caused me to die, you were the watcher over them, and you are the witness of all things.)  Here Jesus declared He died in the past tense.  7-Qu'an 4:157-158 And their saying, (Surely we killed the Christ ‘Isā, son of Mary, the messenger of Allah.)And they did not kill him, and they did not salaba(crucify) him; but it was made to appear to them, and surely those who disagree about him are in doubt of him. They do not have any knowledge of him except following the conjecture, and they did not kill him for certain. 158Yet Allah raised him up to himself. And Allah was dear, wise. This is the only verse which Muslim scholars will use to say that Jesus was not crucified. I wish you could go and read the interpretation of Muslim scholars to this verse. Not only will you disrespect them but you will laugh at them for their interpretation is nothing but fabrication. It is nothing but made up stories and sadly there is no agreement between those (so called) Muslim scholars.   Now I give you my simple interpretation to these two verses. The Jews thought that they got rid of Jesus through killing Jesus on the cross, but  in reality they could not get rid of Jesus because God raised him from the dead and he is alive right now in heaven. Notice that I used the Quran to prove to you the death and Resurrection of Jesus. If you are sincere in your search about the truth I will continue to answer your emails, otherwise this will be our last communication.

 
Question:
I am in Saudi Arabia and have muslim people ask me questions about the Bible saying it is corrupted. I know all the right answers to give them in English but most of them cant understand me. Please do you have any explanations for them in Arabic on this subject?
Answer:
The best way to answer Muslims is to use the Qur'an.  Using the Bible to prove that the Bible is not corrupted is not acceptable to Muslims for to them you are using a corrupt book, the Bible. Since Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the perfect word of Allah, I would use the Qur'an to prove to them that the Bible is the perfect word of God.   For example: Qur'an 15:9 says: "Surely we have sent down the reminder (the Bible, compare to Qur'an 16:43; also the Qur’an, Qur'an 16:44) and surely we will be its guardian."   Here we see that Allah sent his reminder, that is his word, and he will guard it.  Some will say that this reminder in this verse is the Qur'an and not the Bible.  So we take them to Qur'an 21:48 which says: "And indeed, we gave Moses and Aaron the discriminator and a light and a reminder for the fearer."    Now we see that the Torah which was given to Moses is called the reminder. Add to this that Allah in the Qur'an states that all the men who wrote the Bible were inspired, and the entire Bible is called the reminder for we read in Qur'an 16:43: "And we did not send before you any except men that we inspired, so ask the people of the reminder (Jews and Christians) if you were not knowing."   Now we know that the Bible is called the reminder and that Allah will guard his reminder.  This is enough to know that no one can change Allah's word. Another good evidence that no one can change Alla's word is Qur'an 6:34: "And indeed the messengers before were considered liars, so they were patient on being considered liars, and they were until Our victory came to them, and no one can change the words of Allah. And indeed, some of the news of the messengers came to you." Now we know for sure from the Qur'an that no one can change Allah's word.   Muslims are commanded in the Qur'an to believe in the Bible. As we read in the following verse - Qur'an 4:136: "O you who have believed, believe in Allah and his messenger and the book, which he has sent down on his messenger, and the book, which he has sent down before. Whoever becomes an infidel in Allah and his angels and his books and his messengers and the last day, so indeed he has strayed far away astray."  So how can Allah command the Muslims to believe in the Bible if it was corrupted?   Allah commanded the Jews to judge and live by the Torah in the following verse.  Qur'an 5:44: "Surely we have sent down the Torah, in it is guidance and light. The prophets judge by it those who submit themselves to the Jews and the Jewish teachers and the priests in what they guard from the book of Allah, and they were witnesses over it. So do not fear the people, and fear me, and do not purchase with my verses a little price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has sent down, so those are the infidels."   Notice, if anyone who does not live or judge by the Torah, Allah calls them an infidel.  That is an evidence that the Torah is perfect, has no corruption.     How about the New Testament?  We read in Qur'an 5:46 and 47: "And in their footsteps we sent ‘Isa (Jesus), son of Mary, confirming what is between his hands of the Torah, and we gave him the gospel, in it is guidance and light, and confirming what was between his hands from the Torah, and a guidance and an admonition to the fearer. 47 And that the people of the gospel judge by what Allah has sent down in it. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has sent down, so those are the transgressors." Allah declares here that the New Testament confirms the Torah and it is guidance e and light. Also, Allah said that anyone who will not judge by the gospels will be transgressors.    The Qur'an also declares that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is perfect., and the Qur'an's responsibility is to guard the Bible. So if Muslims accuse the Bible of any corruption, as we read in the following verse - Qur'an 5:48: "And to you we have sent down the book with the truth, confirming what is between his hands of the book and as guardian over it."   Do you know that Mohammed doubted his own Qur'an? So Allah asked him to check the truthfulness of his Qur'an by the Bible as we see this in the following verse - Qur'an 10:94:  "So, if you (Mohammed) were in doubt concerning what we have sent down to you, (the Qur’an) so ask those (Jews and Christians) who are reading the book (the Bible) before you; indeed, the truth came to you from your lord, so do not be of the doubters."  That is another evidence that the Bible is perfect. How can Allah, the all knower, ask Mohammed to check validity by a corrupt book.    The more you learn about the Qur'an, the more you can use it to minister to Muslims. Don't forget, we do not use the Qur'an because we believe in it, we use it because Muslims believe in it. Because after we use the Qur'an to prove to the Muslim that the Bible is the perfect word of God, then we will use the Qur'an to prove to the Muslims that the Qur'an is not the word of God.

 
Question:
Does the Quŕan or any of its abrogation’s found in the Hadith, describe a heaven that has different levels in order to accommodate most of the followers of the Islamic ideology ?
Answer:
The Quran teaches that good deeds remove evil deeds  …Surely good deeds drive away the evil deeds… Qur'an 11:114  but also the Quran teaches that all Muslims will go to Hell  …So whoever is removed from the fire and enters the garden, so indeed he becomes triumphant… Qur'an 3:185 and then Allah will show his mercy to some of them and he will admit them to one of his seven paradises. Only jihadist who die for the sake  of Allah will make it to paradise without going to hell.  Qur'an 3:169 And do not consider those who were killed for the sake of Allah as dead. Yet they are alive with their lord, receiving their provision.

 
Question:
What is your view of The Camel Method?
Answer:
The Camel Method is a poor presentation for it tries to use the Qur'an to prove to the Muslim about the Gospel of Jesus. But in fact, the name Jesus is not mentioned in the Qur'an but Isa who is not the Son of God or the son of Allah and who did not die on the cross - so it is actually an empty circle. However, on the other hand, I use the Qur'an when I minister to the Muslims after assuring them that I do not believe in it as  - step number 1 -  for Mohammed declared in the Qur'an that the Bible is the Word of God, which had never been corrupted and will never change. Because Muslims believe in their Qur'an, they must believe that the Bible is the perfect Word of God.    Then step number 2 -  I use the Qur'an to disprove the Qur'an to be the Word of God. Obviously, that is as we show hundreds of error and contradictions, which is now available in our new two volume book, Exposing the Truth about the Qur'an, The Revelation of Error.   Then we lead the Muslim to the truth of the Gospel which is step number 3. If we do not take these easy three steps and just expose the error and contradictions in the Qur'an and convince the Muslim that the Qur'an and Islam are false, we may lose them for good to atheism. Also, before I show my Muslim friends that they are lost in Islam, it is very important to let them know about the truth of the Gospel as mentioned in step number 1.  Don't forget, when I use the Qur'an, I emphasize to my Muslim friends that I do not believe in it.
