Why Islam?

By Dr Laurence Brown

Let’s talk frankly. Almost never do non-Muslims study Islam until they have first exhausted the religions of their exposure. Only after they have grown dissatisfied with the religions familiar to them, meaning Judaism, Christianity and all the fashionable “-isms”—Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism (and, as my young daughter once added, “tourism”)—do they consider Islam.

Islam is often the last religion non-Muslims explore because of the negative media attention

Perhaps other religions do not answer the big questions of life, such as “Who made us?” and “Why are we here?” Perhaps other religions do not reconcile the injustices of life with a fair and just Creator. Perhaps we find hypocrisy in the clergy, untenable tenets of faith in the canon, or corruption in the scripture. Whatever the reason, we perceive shortcomings in the religions of our exposure, and look elsewhere. And the ultimate “elsewhere” is Islam.

Now, Muslims would not like to hear me say that Islam is the “ultimate elsewhere.” But it is. Despite the fact that Muslims comprise one-fourth to one-fifth of the world’s population, non-Muslim media smears Islam with such horrible slanders that few non-Muslims view the religion in a positive light. Hence, it is normally the last religion seekers investigate. (Read more: Islam Explained)

There is a God.

Another problem is that by the time non-Muslims examine Islam, other religions have typically heightened their skepticism: If every “God-given” scripture we have ever seen is corrupt, how can the Islamic scripture be different? If charlatans have manipulated religions to suit their desires, how can we imagine the same not to have happened with Islam?

The answer can be given in a few lines, but takes books to explain. The short answer is this: There is a God. He is fair and just, and He wants us to achieve the reward of paradise. However, God has placed us in this worldly life as a test, to weed out the worthy from the unworthy. And we will be lost if left to our own devices. Why? Because we don’t know what He wants from us. We can’t navigate the twists and turns of this life without His guidance, and hence, He has given us guidance in the form of revelation.

Sure, previous religions have been corrupted, and that is one of the reasons why we have a chain of revelation. Ask yourself: wouldn’t God send another revelation if the preceding scriptures were impure? If preceding scriptures were corrupted, humans would need another revelation, to keep upon the straight path of His design. (Learn more: The Need for Revelation)

So we should expect preceding scriptures to be corrupted, and we should expect the final revelation to be pure and unadulterated, for we cannot imagine a loving God leaving us astray. What we can imagine is God giving us a scripture, and men corrupting it; God giving us another scripture, and men corrupting it again … and again, and again. Until God sends a final revelation He promises to preserve until the end of time.

Muslims consider this final revelation to be the Holy Quran. You consider it … worth looking into. So let us return to the title of this article: Why Islam? Why should we believe that Islam is the religion of truth, the religion that possesses the pure and final revelation?

“Oh, just trust me.”

Now, how many times have you heard that line? A famous comedian used to joke that people of different cities cuss one another out in different ways. In Chicago, they cuss a person out this way, in Los Angeles they cuss a person out that way, but in New York they just say, “Trust me.”

So don’t trust me—trust our Creator. Read the Quran, read books and study good websites. But whatever you do, get started, take it seriously, and pray for our Creator to guide you.

Your life may not depend on it, but your soul most definitely does.

  1. Zarina Din says:

    I had listened to his topic on "Are You Sick of Religion" and why he chose Islam is interesting to learn. When a person changes the religion, you have to go thru a test which is very hard and difficult to adjust to. Especially, women. Well! I am glad that he had been rewarded a peaceful life. May peace be with him. The eight scroll seems to be interesting to look into next.

  2. I have read a lot about converted to Islam : their comments, their opinions, their thoughts, their interviews, their books; but frew have had a big impact on me in order to make me write a comment on them. Sometimes it´s because of their younger age. Sometimes it´s due to their intelectual shortness to make themselves understood. Sometimes it´s simpley because of lack of knowledge in Arabic language and the deepest meanings of Islam.However, when we deal with Dr Laurence Brown, things change completely : we have in front of us a man who has got all what it takes and knows profoundly what the whole thing is about. I have just come across his lecture " The Big Questions " and immediately started to translate it to Spanish language . His lecture deserves being heard because it explains the meaning of life in the most perfect way .

  3. Kevin Poplin says:

    I pray for you sir to come to Jesus. the Light of the world.

  4. Read the Quran. It is easy to understand and you will inshaAllah adopt it.

  5. Jane Grover says:

    Rooha Ghaznavi Qureshi, I have read it, it is an awful book, poorly written, full of contradictions, laughable "science" and often gibberish

  6. Brother, Jesus loves you and all, he is too a beloved Servant of Allah,and sent with the light.. what if we are denying the truth what Jesus Christ(peace be upon him) said to the Humanity,,still we love Jesus then…. its upto u , Suggest u to Seek and Find, and i myself believe that a Heart dat hold the love towards Jesus Christ(p.b.u.h) won't be Misguided when they seek, May our Creator guide you Brother

  7. Esam Ahmed Elbadry says:

    Jane Grover u have to be honest with urself . how can u say that on quran while u never read it?? u say it s poorly written ?? even the titans of arabic language n that time couldnt say that about quran.can u tell us some of contradictions in quran???? can u tell us what s the laughable science n quran???? i will wait untill u reply otherwise i ll know that u never read quran.

  8. Ali Oukemoum says:

    I will give an information for you that muslims love Jesus more than any christian .but we don't worship him because we believe that he is a messenger of God as it is mentionned in the bible.
    And muslims fellow Jesus's commandements more than christians themseves. ( for example nudity, wine and porc are forbidden ).: You don't fellow Jesus why do you worship him as God, son of God or savior???

  9. Jane Grover says:

    Ali Oukemoum, jesus never existed

  10. Jane Grover , only goes to prove you have not read it.

  11. Jane Grover says:

    Rooha Ghaznavi Qureshi, read what? The koran? That's no proof of anything

  12. Mrb Ali says:

    You will find the true Jesus in Islam.

  13. Jane Grover says:

    Mrb Ali, nope, i will find the islamic jesus in islam and the christian jesus in christanity. However it is very unlikely that either ever existed

  14. Jane Grover It only goes to show that you have not read it.

  15. Jane Grover says:

    Rooha Ghaznavi Qureshi, not read what? Some old books of myths and folk tales don't prove anything

  16. Pari Zad says:

    what ever is written above is pure lie because Quran is a book of contradictions all over and an incomplete scripture stolen from the books which existed well before islam. and yes i can prove it from their Authentic scriptures. so please DO NOT MISGUIDE HUMANITY FROM THE PATH OF GOD. and stop serving satan.

  17. Eng Abdikariin Tacshiir says:

    Allah akbar

  18. Ben Sung says:

    I agree with you completely. Those who are confused, please read the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. They mixed up and messed up all the contents of those books and claim this religion has its own prophecies and new idea. The reality of this religion is summed up in the book, "Son of Hamas" by Mosab Hassan Yousef. Please read it and wake up!

  19. Jason Jones says:

    However the parallels of the story of Jesus were stolen from the Egyptian story of Horus almost verbatim.

  20. Jason Jones says:

    A lot of Islam bashers on here. I've noticed that Christianity is the only religion to put down other religions. Muslims revere Jesus and other figures that appear in the Bible.

  21. Jane Grover says:

    Jason Jones islam denigrates both judaism and christianity. Muslims revere the jesus of islam not the jesus of christianity

  22. Jason Jones says:

    It's the same Jesus. They don't believe he was cricified.

  23. Jane Grover says:

    Jason Jones or the personification of god – rather fundamental difference wouldn't you say?

  24. what is your proof that QURAN is a lie read it again cos we muslims think is a miracle from GOD ALMIGHTY to mankind.
    i say this with love

  25. Anonymous says:

    than you Mr Brown for revealing the Truth! Everybody should emrbrace Islam asap and find happiness and peace.
    I would like to emphasise once more that the Quran (which has remained the same, word for word) contains not 1 single scientific error. I have a challenge for every paid cruisader and atheist: TRY to disprove the Quran: JUST find 1 SINGLE ERROR in the Quran JUST1, you can not because it is the verbatim word of God, UNLIKE the Bible which claims that the earth is flat and stationary , which claims that the WHOLE WORLD WAS FLOODED during Noahs time, which claims that the world was created in 6 DAYS and on the 7th GOD RESTED , its hard to get intelectual free thinking converts with these very scientifc errors

  26. Anonymous says:

    I challenge you folks to find just 1 SINGLE SCIENTIFIC ERROR in the QURAN , just 1 . Its hard for you to cope with the fact that the Quran has remained unchanged and the verbatim word of God for the past 1400 years ,and its even harder for you people to draw intelectuals to christianity with biblical facts such as the earth being flat and stationary, world was created in 6 DAYS (when there was no days) , vegetation was created before the sun etc etc.

  27. Anonymous says:

    if you are uneducated, or a sheep just follwing the herd or just a fool believing that the earth is flat and stationary or that the earth was created in 6 DAYS and in many other scientific errors in the 1000 different existing versions of the bible (google it) then go for Christianity, if you are intelectual and educated and truly seeking for the Truth then GO FOR ISLAM and the verbatim word of GOD = QURAN ;-) (references dr keith more, dr laurence brown)

  28. In the past I had questions about certain topics in Islam. After doing some investigation I found my answers and were happy with them. Islam is a beautiful faith that is filled with common sense, compassion, and forgiveness. I invite you to learn more about this faith by ordering a quran from whyislam.org. WhyIslam can also provide other literature e.g. Holy Quran Translations. Here is a link to a really beautiful recitation of a chapter from our holy book. You will LOVE it In Sha Allah. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5aIi3OqOJU

  29. Malek Khan says:

    I am amazed Pari Zad and like are not able to understand the simple fact that since the source of Abrahamic faiths is God, there has to be similarities in the teachings yet there are differences. If there would have been major major differences then that would be a thing for concern.

  30. Malek Khan says:

    and yet several people are guided to the truth via the Quran…:)

  31. Jane Grover says:

    Malek Khan nope, it's what they believe to be the truth – there is no evidence to up the claims of the koran.

  32. Jane Grover says:

    The koran is full of errors – the problem is muslims refuse to acknowledge those errors


  33. Jacinto Jaramillo says:

    No ,No, No, por favor, no traduscas mas basura a mi idioma. Demaciado me es tener que contender con el cristianismo demoniaco que USA ,a invevtado y enviado a mi gente. Y ahora tu quieres echarle peor lenia al fuego con ese demoio. ustedes los de USA, y los que son como ustedes ,andan perdidos en el espacio.

    La , Gente no handa en busca Dios. Buscan el perdon de sus Pecados. Y eso solo Jesucristo lo puede dar ,Lucas, 5: 17 -26.

    aqui en la tierra. No confundas mas a mi Gente , por favor no agas esa maldad que estas aciendo por dinero.

  34. Jacinto Jaramillo says:

    The Bible tells us: There fore to him that knows to do good ,and does it not ,to him it is sin. (James 4: 17).

    For those of you who may not know, Mr. Laurence Brown, is an ordain Inter-Faith minister.
    What is Inter-Faith? For an explanation of your liking, go to: jamiat.org.za/blog/what-exactly-is-the-inter-faith-dialogue
    Because if I tell you, you won't believe me, and if I ask you, you will not answer me.
    As you well know, the US has hundreds of T.V. preachers making millions of Dollars, selling books, and , telling people what they want to hear. That was prophesied long ago. (2 Timothy,4:3-4; & 2Peter 2: 2-3).

    The Muslim version of the above said are : Mr Laurence Brown and your well known public speakers. some knowingly, others, not knowingly.

    Since the mid 1800's many demonic Christian sects have surged from the US, along with many false teachers and perversions of the Bible. From those false Christian doctrines and teachers, is where your religious instructors get their material to tickle your ear, and make merchandise of you.

    All this falsehood is believed to be the work of the Roman church? the Church of England? European & English speaking governments? members of the Masons in government? The Bible tells us :Believe not every spirit, but try the spirits to see if they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1).

    How can you know for sure that they are of God? would they be like me?, or like you ? , or like Jesus?, or is there some one else that they could be like?

  35. Nurhaidi Abdullah says:

    Hello Pari. You said that the Quran's contents were stolen from other books. May I know what is this "authentic scriptures" you were talking about which has the evidence to your claim?

  36. Khandy Alawi says:

    you should search for the real teaching of Jesus (peace be upon him) so you'll not go astray…

  37. Jane Grover says:

    Khandy Alawi, i doubt jesus ever existed

  38. Irfan Arif says:

    Jane Grover anti islamic Website have no proofs rather than His view.. full of lies!

  39. Irfan Arif says:

    david_kafaji when here was no days but time is. to measure time we Days is used as unit. for us to understand..!

  40. Irfan Arif says:

    Rather than asking for Jesus Ask God to show you truth. and he will..

  41. Irfan Arif says:

    Jane Grover and if you believe in God. Ask him to show you truth… and he will..!

  42. Irfan Arif says:

    For Allah nothing is impossible.. He tell us about 6 days.. He till us about six days that we could understand.. that is his signs.. there are many researches on going about Universe and IshAllah Ultimately all will Rested on the that point.. that Worlds created in 6 days.. After his signs for presence and Muhammad(SAW) as messenger will you not believe then?

  43. Irfan Arif says:

    lol. Islam wasn't a new Religion though.. We Relate it to Abraham.. the Religion of Abraham, the Religion of Musa, the Religion of Jusus and all others prophets before Muhammad(SAW) were monotheist and were muslim(submission to 1 Allah). If all a few stories were their it doesn't proof that Quran is not word of God.

  44. I must comment on what Dr Brown says ie that Muslims only come to the religion after trying all the others – every Muslim reading that knows it is not true! How did you become a Muslim? Most likely because your parents are Muslim and brought you up as a Muslim. The same thing is true of Christians, Hindus and all members of other religions, apart from a small number of converts.

  45. it is our understanding and belief thet the a muslim is the one who submits to the will of God,as such the whole of nature is muslim,the moon the stars the seas the rivers mountains,everything is a muslim,because they all submit,are you telling me thet the father of the moon was a muslim,or the father of Mt averest was a muslim so it is also a muslim.the defination of a muslim is very differant from a christian or a jew.

  46. we muslims dont need to learn anything about jesus pbuh from christians,we know this mighty messanger of God,more then anyone else,we dont need any proof or convincing from the christians about who jesus christ pbuh is,what do you mean by come to jesus?we believe in jesus pbuh and we believe in all the true messangers of God,whom he sent to mankind for guidance.you christians need to come to jesus pbuh,and if you do,you will automaticelly become a muslim.

  47. why dont you show us the errors

  48. prove it.show us,we want to be inlightned by your knowledge of the Quran,plz show us the chapters which are stolen from the previous books,and how many previous books have you read?and where did you find them?

  49. Jane Grover says:

    Irfan Arif there is no science in the koran.

  50. Ram Krishna says:

    Quran says marry up to 4. How many times the messenger of Allah married? Was he following Quran?

  51. Ram Krishna says:

    david_kafaji If Quran says earth is round, then why it says look towards Makka while praying? On a round earth, any direction is tangential to that place. Then Islamic calender is shorter by 11 days and your Ramadan month shifts by 11 days every year. All knowing gods will not make this blunder.

  52. show us the errors.where are the errors?

  53. first of all.we muslims dont believe in paris,so you dont exist.

  54. Allah says in the holy Quran,the religion in the sight of God is islam,he only acknolodges islam,which means submission.there is not a bible or a geeta or a torah anywhere in the world,where God says this is my book,or where he says,christianity is my religion,or judisiam is my religion or hinduism is my religion,the claim is not there the name is not there,these so called isms are mans creation,with Allah,there is only one religion and thet is total submission,in arabic,it is called Islam,religion of total submission to Gods will.

  55. if you had the thruth way are people waking up and going to islam???

  56. i pray for you and for 1Billion 300 million christians to come to jesus christ pbuh,because i know if you come to jesus christ peace be upon him,you will all automaticelly become Muslims.

  57. read the Bible and the Quran and you will know what the creator is telling you,dont listen to man,listen to your masters voice,jesus christ peace be upon him,said once to his unbelieving people,the sheep and the goat hear there masters voice,how come you dont hear,are you dumber then the sheep.

  58. Jane Grover no sir you have not read the Quran,or you will not be talking like this,do you know your bible has 1000s of errors,are you telling me thet the one who created the heavens and the earths,makes errors and contradicts himselfs.for real,find a contradiction in the Quran and show us,go find one.

  59. Jane Grover says:

    the bible and the koran are both nonsense

  60. Jane Grover please do us all a favour,and show us the errors,plz and dont be ignorant,read the Quran and understand it,and then tell us about the errors.

  61. pari zad i know why you are so against the Quran, the Quran tells us thet there is no such thing as a pari or a pari zad,you are living in a world or mithology,thet is what your religion is based upon.i am sure you are a hindu,,i can tell you thet this word hindu is not in your books,your books tell a differant story and your believes are differant from your books,you talking about islam is like me talking about computer science,you are completely ignorant of this religion,called Islam and this Book called Quran.

  62. and i pray for you to come to Jesus christ the Son of Marry,because if you do,you will automaticelly become a Muslim.

  63. Hassan Raza says:

    lol son of hamas… yeah no worries… total sell out for $$.. trust me he has no idea what the quran says…May I ask you how can I worship a man who died and was resurrected and apparently was God or the son of God.. very contradictive my friend.. just think for a minute brother

  64. Hassan Raza says:

    lol.. nice try.. you have not even read a verse trust me

  65. Jane, I read the article, many assumptions and errors in the article. This was only made to discredit Islam. One book of western scientist: Maurice Bucaille, wrote about scientific in Quran may answer a lot of this.

  66. Your comment shows your misunderstanding of the religion and the fact that you're just repeating what you hear. first i'd like to point out that opinions of the likes of Khalid Qureshi (above) are his own twisted ideas and don't represent our religion. So if you actually know what the Quran is about you will know that it actually ADMITS that it has the same message of the true religion before it,simply because those religions were created by the same god so obviously the message will be similar which is the quite opposite of contradictory!
    We as muslims believe in moses, jesus and mohammed all as prophets, we have a whole chapter in the quran thats called Mary.

    If the Quran was full of contradictions as you say then please enlighten me! i am not a muslim by nature, i was born a muslim but never actually believed until i did the research myself. and believe me, if such contradictions exist then they would've been highly exposed by now and in no way the religion or the book will hold up for more than 1400 years.

    I can talk and talk about the topic but i will stop here. I wish you find the true path which i believe is islam. and if anyone is reading this and have a question or a few i'll be happy to answer to the best of my abilities.

  67. Anwar Alam says:

    Islam is a one of religious

  68. Said Amal says:

    Jane Grover i'm prettu sure you didn't read it, and you cannot read it because you are afraid .. so stop telling ppl lies

  69. show us the errors and we will acknoledge them, but if you fail then you will have to submitt.

  70. what is there to copy,dirty filthy storys,storys thet are half told,Bible tells us thet the light of the moon is its own light,if the Quran says the same thing then you can call it a copy.this one error in the bible should be inough for this Book to be thrown out as a revelation from the creator.any Book from God almighty will be free from errors,and the Bible which includes the Christian Bible and the Jewish Bible is full of contridictions.

  71. and i pray to Allah the lord of the universe,my creator and your creator,to bring you back to the path,may he open up your mind and your eyes to understand who this mighty messanger of Allah,Jesus Christ was,what was his Message and what were his teachings,you have to study this mighty messanger and listen to him what he says and not what someone says he said.the minute you will understand jesus may peace be upon him,you will become a Muslim.

  72. Brother we know who Jesus Christ is,we dont need any conformation or proof from the Christians,we believe in this mighty Messanger of Allah,on the authority of Revelation given to the Prophet of Islam,may peace be upon him.we dont need any convincing or proof from the Christians.

  73. Trebor Emiaj says:

    I am waiting for someone, somewhere to PROVE there is a god without using a "holy book"… why? because that is a false argument. Religious people just seem foolish and naïve to me— you kill in the name of your god. If god was real and you killed in his name, he (or she) would kick your butt — I am tired of DUMB— and religion is JUST DUMB. non of it makes sense.. and the next argument I hear is "well, that's because god doesn't WANT you to understand unless you believe" which is another ABSURD and SILLY argument. I am WILLING to believe if someone can just PROVIDE PROOF. That's NOT A HIGH BAR… evidence? sigh. just makes me sad. Just like those losers with their confederate flag… you NEVER admit you MIGHT be wrong— which makes you even SCARIER……. I feel sorry for you folks, that life is soooo empty you need a crutch… we are only human here. Religion is an insult to one's natural born intelligence—-

  74. Trebor Emiaj says:

    you can't find error in a book of fictional poetry….which is what the bible and the quaran is.

  75. Trebor Emiaj says:

    so what does Allah say about using computers? are they demon possessed? is that what you believe?

  76. Orukomi Ni says:

    Hi Trevor. That's really thought provoking question indeed. I really never considered it, but now that your mentioning it got me thinking.
    Right from when I started to understand the world around me, I understood that for there to be a creation, then there must be a creator somewhere. So if I exist, created me? Mum and dad? Who created them? Who was the first man or first sperm and locum? Who created them?
    Ok, maybe it's not God because we don't like that noun. So we'll just stick to the adjective "creator".
    The holy books tell us about Him just like the science books tell us about Aristotle otherwise we'll assume all our history is false because we didn't witness them.
    Now, who created the creator? That is beyond me but I am humble enough to admit that there's superior existence, with humility, my mind is open and my brain can distinguish truth from falsehood and sieve out arrogant cliches of people who don't even have power over their own bowels.

  77. Orukomi Ni says:

    No it's not what we believe Trevor. Open your mind and ask more intelligent questions. We believe computers are believe computers are a product of the intelligence God gave to mankind to benefit him.

  78. can you prove to me thet your Father is indeed your Father? without showing the birth certificate.anyway,yes i can prove to you there is a God and this God is the God,he is the only God who claimes to be the God,he is the creator of all things,if there was no God then the universe whould not be in harmony,there would be chaos,planets would come crashing down of one another,the ocean will over take the land,if there is the creation,there has to be a creator,and our creator is mercyfull and he is just,he have created everything in order and balance,this earth of ours is the only planet in the universe which is protected,no other planet thet we know is protected.i can go on writing stuff,but i think for someone who has the ability to think and is not blind this should be inough.

  79. jane Grover you have one hundred years from today to bring forth one error,please i just want one,and you can seek help from any human or some other being if you know one,you have one hundred years,take your time and do your research,and please be honest in your research.

  80. bring me one i dont want hundreds i only want one,and you have one hundred years to find it.pari zad you have made a statement which you in hundred years cannot prove.

  81. Kavin Poplin,do you know thet if you today decide to live your life 100% according to the teachings of Jesus Christ may peace be upon him,you will not last more then a week,do you understand what it means to follow Christ?do you even know who Christ was and to whom he was sent.can you read the first commandment in the language of Christ.

  82. Trebor Emiaj what are you even talking about?.it makes no sence.

  83. Anwar Dani says:

    I pray for you sir to come to allah . we love jesus more than you

  84. Anwar Dani says:

    Ram Krishna He did it for a reasons . one of them was that many women wanted to have the chance to be a wife of the prophet . and there is a lot's of reasons .

  85. Anwar Dani says:

    just prove that your house cames from nothing . and you will know

  86. there are plenty amount of things the quran speaks about which science, the big bang, the water cyle, embryo development, the moving of the sun to a specfic point in space where it run of out fuel after a time, there are loads of things, function of the mountains, the layers of the earth and atmosphere, everything that we know as fact with science does not dissagre with the quran in the slightest, and i would like to say also the quran although having many of todays recent scientific discoveries,the quran is not a book of science, its a book of signs in which more then a thousand signs speak about science

  87. are you crazy if the quran was a copied book from old scriptures then how could any of the scientifc errors have been corrected or things added that wernt it old scripure for example the bible says in the creation of the earth that the moon has its own light, we know through science and the quran says the moon has reflected light from the sun and im sorry but even the prophet muhammed(pbuh) is mentioned in all the old scriptures of his coming

  88. Khalid Qureshi Yes I can prove my father is my father. 1. He exists in subatantive reality. 2. There are genetic tests that can prove conclusively and which can be reproduced by any who are interested to show that he is my father. 3. I can interact in reality with my father (not in my head or in a way that is impossible for anyone to pervcieve.

    An assertion without proof (pointing to the sky is not proof as I can offer natural non-supernatural explanations for the universe) is really not even worth cosidering as a propostion of truth.

    here is an eaxmple: I have an invisible dragon. He is both maximally powerful and Maximully knowledgeable. He has chosen to recveal himself only to me and select other – (but not you). Even so he has charged me with making you beleive in him. I must tell you if you fail to beleive in him and follow the tenants of the dragon (handed to me by the almighty dragon) he will eat you and you will spend eternity on the pit of his stomach with all the other non-believers. I know the dragon exists because he talks to me (in my heart). He created the universe with a swathe of his tail and yo uknow this is true beacuse you can see all that he created – any questions. Make sure you swear your life to him by the end of the day or ill be forced to let him know that you are a non-believer…

  89. Khalid Qureshi the errors have been posted previously – but you have to actually read them – so as a curtesy here they are again – http://wikiislam.net/wiki/Scientific_Errors_in_the_Quran

  90. Trebor Emiaj says:

    thank you for not being angry and resentful. molecules are not nothing, still I don't see it as proof of anything. If you were transported back 2000 years ago and you took an IPod with you and played the music for people, you would be killed as a witch. We know that the iPod doens't have a demon, it's just electricity. Absence of an answer does not an answer make. I wish you the best.. thank you.

  91. Since this site is primarily aimed at non-Muslims and those considering Islam so I believe the statement is true. He was not speaking to those raised in it, just those coming to it.

  92. Yes..I believe Jesus, who said: "I Am the Truth"..and 'I and the Father are One"..and "If you seen Me, you have Seen the Father".."He who has received the Son is Free and he who is Free is Free Indeed"…that the Light (Christ) came into the world but the Darkness knew it not nor could it comprehend it". In God, Christ was crucified before the foundation of the earth…why would I believe a man-made system that denies salvation in The One who came to take away 'The Sin of the world' for a vaccuous system ? It makes no sense at all…It is by the Grace of God we are saved into Eternity and not of works. Christ did the work that no man can do -as a perfect sinless man as our Representative before a Perfectly Holy God..Mohammed was no perfect man by any sense of the word. No even close.

  93. Allah knows the number of those amongst His creation that will deny His existence. Note how patient He is with them ! And that those who don't believe cast those that do as "dumb", "foolish", "silly" like we have nothing better to do in the world but worship our Creator… how boring our lives must be ! Lol ! But I say their argument that there is no God is just as "dumb", "foolish", "silly" and because I don't physcially see God has never been solid proof to me that there is no God. How ABSURB ! Lots of things going on around us we can't SEE. Duh ! Provide Proof that there is No God…I didn't create myself…my parents have never divulge to me that they created me in the basement like would-be Doctor Frankensteins. I'm waiting for the day when those who think there is no God, the Creator of Death, claim that they escaped being touched, in any way, by DEATH…and PROVE it ! The Creator of Intelligence, ALLAH, and ALLAH alone, is worshipped by me !

  94. Islam is the religion of satan. Go ahead guys, rule the world and kill all the Christians and Jews. Every single soul that you behead in the name of Allah will reign with Christ for all eternity. You may be able to destroy our body but you cannot destroy our soul. Cut our necks till our heads fall off but you cannot touch the soul my friends. I DO NOT FEAR ISLAM or DEATH. I will believe in Jesus Christ of Christianity and reject Islam until my mortal body is no more. All of the muslims who cut off the heads of Christians are fulfilling bible prophecy! This is the way it was written 2000 years ago that it will happen! That is Islam's only purpose, it is to be used by the Anti-Christ possessed by lucifer himself to deceive the whole world into worshiping him and to BEHEAD all those that refuse to. I cannot be clear enough all muslims are siding with Satan himself. This is the religion of the anti-christ. Get out of this false religion while you still can! Preach the true gospel of Jesus Christ! And expose the false doctrines like Islam! Do not be afraid of torture or death! If a muslim threatens your life let him kill you he is doing you a favor! Preach the gospel until the moment you draw your last breath!

  95. ??? ???? ?????? ??? ??????? ??? ???? ???? ? Who Will Save You from Me Now ??? There was a small community in an isolated area. Weak and defenseless, the people of this community lived in fear and anxiety, because they were being relentlessly attacked by a gang of bandits.
    We can scarcely imagine their fear. It is the fear of a helpless person in the face of a strong and merciless abuser. These bandits knew only the law of the jungle. Like lions, they recognized no code of ethics besides their own hunger and lust. Anyone they could subdue was fair game.
    Though the community lived in the desert, before the arrival of the gang, they enjoyed peace and security and managed to prosper. Now they were being stripped of their lives, their liberty, and their honor. In desperation, they appealed to the authorities to come save them.
    The head of state decided to take it upon himself to lead his forces into the area and punish the ones who were spreading terror and violating the lives and security of his people. News of this mobilization spread quickly and soon the bandits knew that the authorities were coming after them in force. They were compelled to flee the area and seek refuge in the surrounding mountains. They hid among the highest peaks they could find, hoping to save themselves. They knew that they could very well meet their fate in the very place they were fleeing to, but they hoped to at least be able to scope out the forces that were being sent against them.
    The forces arrived under the command of the head of state to find that the bandits had abandoned the area and taken up positions on a nearby mountain to survey the situation from a safe vantage point.
    As soon as the forces arrived, a thunderstorm struck, flooding the valleys near the mountain. The head of state was soaked through. After the storm passed, he went off to find a place to remove his clothes and allow them to air out. He found a tree, took off his outer garments, and hung them on a branch to dry. He sat beneath the tree to rest from the tiring journey. Fatigue defeated him and he soon drifted off to sleep.
    One of the bandits was watching this with interest, and said to himself, “This is an excellent opportunity to subdue the leader while he is sleeping. Then no one will stand in our way.”
    Exercising the utmost stealth, he climbed down from the mountain and snuck across to where the leader was sleeping.
    As he approached the tree, he noticed the leader’s sword beside him. He looked left and right to make sure that no one else was around. Then, with his skill as a thief, he quickly snatched up the sword and then pointed it in the leaders face.
    The bandit sneered and exclaimed: “Who will save you from me now?”
    The leader woke up at these words to see the bandit standing, threateningly above his head, sword in hand. He realized immediately that the glowering bandit had disarmed him and was threatening to kill him. Imagine what you would do in such a situation.
    The leader kept his composure, straightened himself up where he was sitting, and regarded his assailant calmly. After listening patiently to the bandit’s threats, he answered his assailant’s question, and said, “God will save me.”
    The bandit felt a shudder go through his body and down his arm. He dropped the sword. As swiftly as it fell, the leader snatched it up and came upon the bandit with it, repeating the same question that the bandit had asked him moments before, “Who will save you from me now?”
    Imagine that you found yourself in this leader’s position. What would you do with the bandit? Would your state of mind give you any chance to think before acting? Would anyone blame you if you struck the thief down in self defense?
    However, this leader had a strong, magnanimous heart, a heart that knew neither rancor nor vengefulness. He regarded vindictiveness to be a sign of weakness. Imagine that the leader not only pardoned the bandit, but offered him the opportunity to join with his forces in their campaign. Moreover, he promised him that if he took the offer, he would receive all of the entitlements and rewards that the other soldiers would get.
    We would suspect the bandit to eagerly take up this offer, at least as an act of deception. However, the bandit did the unthinkable. He refused, and the ruffian did so with all the coarseness and impertinence that he could muster. The leader said to him, “Then go. You know the way.”
    The bandit began to hasten away, but then stopped and said, “I will not fight against you, nor will I ever join with any group who fights you.” This, in and of itself, was an acceptable enough outcome.
    When the bandit returned to the rest of his gang, they could see that he was elated to have survived the encounter. He said to them, “I have come to you from a leader like no other.” He then related to them everything that had happened and how fortunate he was to still be alive.”
    It remains for us to reveal the identity of this leader. He was the same person who is often maligned and depicted in a most ignoble light. Yes, he was none other than Muhammad, the Prophet of God.

  96. but jesus is also beloved to muslim,

  97. Mohammad Salman Mir the Jesus u believe in is a false Jesus… The true Jesus died on the cross was buried and rose again. Your Jesus is a worthless prophet who never died and therefore is powerless to save anyone from their sins. If your Jesus was the true Jesus then everyone who ever existed would be damned. Thank God Jesus is the Son of God however and not a useless prophet

  98. "Islam is often the last religion non-Muslims explore" That is true !!. Because the ones that were born muslims, cannot really "explore" any other religions. That is apostasy punished by death!! Read your Quram.

  99. If a muslim male martir, kills himself with a suicide bomb. He gets 72 virgins. If a female suicide bomber kills herself is she getting 72 guys?

  100. If a muslim suicide bomber, very devoted and willing to be a martir. Wants to kill dozens of infidels , but due to a malfuntion, the thing explodes before and only him is killed. Does he still get the 72 virgins? Just 36? 18? None?

  101. Desecrating a Quran is so bad, we know many muslim will seek proper punishment. If someone desecrates a thousand Qurans but secretly. In a basement and does not tell anyone, what are the implications? Are the same if he had dececrated only 500 or only 10?

  102. My fellow muslim friends, I really apreciate it if you give answers to the below questions. Respectully, Elias
