The Imperfections of the Quran – Part 1

Islam_Anno2_64Muslims generally believe that the Quran is perfect, meaning, it is complete and error free. However, a close examination of the evidence suggests that the Quran is incomplete and therefore imperfect.

1. Part of Quranic revelation was eaten by a goat

Sunan Ibn Majah, Book of Nikah, Hadith # 1934
“Narrated Aisha ‘The verse of stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept
under my bed. When the Messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.'”

Wars of Early Islam

images (3)Muslims often project Islam as the religion of peace. But can this be true in the light of the historical evidence in the form of wars during the early Islamic history? Let’s evaluate.

Mohammed migrated to Medina from Mecca in the year 622 A.D. This migration is called Hijra, and 622 is the first year of the Islamic calender. The first year of the Islamic calender does not start with the year Quran was given to  Mohammed, year 610 A.D or the year Mohammed gave the public proclamation to embrace Islam 613 A.D or the year 620 A.D when the Prophet is claimed to have visited heaven. These do not mark the watershed moment in Islam. But 622 A.D does.

The migration to Medina in the year 622 A.D resulted in a paradigm shift in the life of Mohammed and the Muslims. Until then Mohammed and his followers were a persecuted bunch. Some of them had already migrated to the Christian empire of Abyssinia for refuge. This migration happened twice. But after Mohammed migrated to Medina in the year 622 A.D., his life changed. He acquired power. He became a ruler. Once he became a ruler, a series of battles followed. These include: [Read more…]

The Most Common Question Muslims Ask Christians: Where did Jesus say, “I am God! Worship me!”?

jesus-christ-by-MikeOC[232498]If you any Muslim friend who is apologetically inclined, then the question he would have asked you is this. ‘Where did Jesus say, ” I am God! Worship me!”?’

Now it is an interestingly and intelligently worded question to take unaware any ill-equipped Christian. It assumes that there is a certain way Jesus must express himself “I am God” and if he has not said that then he is not God. The Muslim thinks that Jesus should express his divinity in accordance with his understanding or wish as to how he should express it. Secondly, he assumes that Jesus has not said that.

But Jesus has expressed his divinity in multiple ways.

1. Jesus claim to be deity. [Read more…]

The Cross and the Falsification of Islam

Sura 4:156-159 states:

“Allah set a seal upon them owing to their unbelief, so they shall not believe except a few. And for their unbelief and for their having uttered against Marium a grievous calumny. And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa  son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and  they killed him not for sure. Nay! Allah took him up to Himself; and Allah is Mighty, Wise. Andthere is not one of the followers of the Book but most certainly believes in this before his death, and on the day of  resurrection he (Isa) shall be a witness against them.”

The Quran claims that Jesus was not killed. It denies the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary.

The Crucifixion of Jesus attested by both biblical and extra-biblical evidences. [Read more…]

Islamic Fundamentalism, Islamism and Extremism – Introduction

islamism

“The mere fact of adherence to Islam has profound political consequences.” – Daniel Pipes, In the Path of God: Islam and Political Power.

The topic  of Islamic fundamentalism, Islamism, and extremism is being widely studied, discussed, and researched in academia, in almost all the top secular Western universities, parliaments, media, and communities. Its prominence came in the wake of the Oklahoma bombings and the 9/11 incident. The rise of attacks on the West and Western tourists visiting Islamic countries and the rise of Al-Qaeda and ISIL has shown new battlefronts emerging and new generations entering into conflict because of ideologies developed from the Quran. Even within Islam, there is no consensus over these ideologies. There is no clarity and many Muslims are increasingly getting radicalized by preaching they hear from radicals invited to preach in their mosques. What makes Muslims become suicide bombers or join ISIS? What drives them and motivates them to kill people with whom they have no personal issues? What lies behind the hatred of the West in many in Islamic societies? Does an average Muslim support extremists? [Read more…]
