Muhammad claimed to have received visions from God and teachings, which is Koran; here are basic teachings of islam:
–Monotheism (Sura5:73, 112:1-4), calls God ‘Allah’, denies the Trinity (5:73)
–Jesus is not God (5:17,75) Jesus was not the Son of God (9:30), Jesus was not crucified (4:157)
–The Holy Spirit is the angel Gabriel (2:97,16:102)
–Salvation is by sincerity and works (3:135, 7:8-9, 21:47, 49:14, 66:8-9)
–No miracles done by Muhammad or Allah recorded except they claim the Qur’an is a miracle and makes no prophecies (”foretelling the future’).
As the Jews believed in the Old Testament and the Christians put their faith in both the Old and New Testaments, the Muslims believe the Quran is the divine word of God. This book, containing the supposed revelations given to Mohammed, is divided into 114 chapters, or Suras. His followers wrote the Quran shortly after Mohammed’s death.
To the Muslims, the Quran is God’s last word to the world. It states that both the Old and New Testaments are likewise divinely inspired, but have been altered by Christians and Jews (archaeological discoveries of Biblical Manuscripts are denied by Muslims, they say ‘Satan produced them’); they say Quran was kept by Allah, but how come Allah couldn’t keep the Old and the New Testament writings that He had inspired? Surah 6:115 and 18:27 say that nobody can change the Word of Allah (it does not say Quran, but ”Word”). In any place where they conflict, the Bible is wrong and the Quran is correct; the Quran is the final authority (Sura 33:40).
Islam’s basic teaching, called the Islamic creed, consists of six basic beliefs, found throughout the Quran. The favorite creed of Islam is, “There is no God but Allah,” which is recited daily by the faithful Muslim.
Muslims also believe that Allah has revealed himself through Scripture, including the Old Testament, the Gospels (though not believing them to be accurate today), the Quran, and the traditions not contained in the Quran called the Hadith. Of the above sources, only the Quran is totally trusted by Muslims.
Islam also holds a strong belief in the prophets, Mohammed being the greatest since he was sent to the entire world. Jesus is viewed as a prophet sent only to the Jews but according to the Quran Jesus is greater than Muhammad: Jesus was born through the Holy Spirit, Jesus did miracles, Jesus is coming back to settle his kingdom, Jesus was without sin, Jesus is called ”The Word of Allah”, Allah has created the world through his Word.
There is a great emphasis in Islam concerning the Day of Judgment. All men will be judged according to their works. Muslims will enter paradise (though some must first be purged for their sins); non-Muslims will be condemned forever to a pit of fire.
Besides the five basic beliefs, Muslims also have five pillars or observances that follow as part of their faith. They are:
1. The creed or statement of belief: “There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet of Allah.”
2. The ritual prayers performed five times a day facing Mecca.
3. Alms giving, offering 1/40 of their income for the needy.
4. Their observance of Ramadan where they fast during the daylight hours and feast at night (statistics show during Ramadan more food is sold than in any other month of the year)
5. Their pilgrimage to Mecca required of all Muslims before death (you can pay someone to go in your place if you cant go)
There is an unofficial sixth pillar known as jihad, the holy war. This is used to spread Islam. The Koran’s 164 Jihad Verses: K 002:178-179, 190-191, 193-194, 216-218, 244; 003:121-126, 140-143, 146, 152-158, 165-167,169, 172-173, 195; 004:071-072, 074-077, 084, 089-091, 094-095,100-104; 005:033, 035, 082; 008:001, 005, 007, 009-010, 012, 015-017, 039-048,057-060, 065-075; 009:005, 012-014, 016, 019-020, 024-026, 029,036, 038-039, 041, 044, 052, 073, 081, 083,086, 088, 092, 111, 120, 122-123; 016:110; 022:039, 058, 078; 024:053, 055; 025:052; 029:006, 069; 033:015, 018, 020, 023, 025-027, 050; 042:039; 047:004, 020, 035; 048:015-024; 049:015; 059:002, 005-008, 014; 060:009; 061:004, 011, 013; 063:004; 064:014; 066:009; 073:020; 076:008. Many of these verses say, ”kill the Christians and the Jews”. Some Muslims say the jihad was just for Muhammad’s time, but these Quran’s jihad verses are addressing all Muslims. Quran does not guarantee paradise but for those that enter jihad.
Finally, Muslims view God as an absolute deity whose will is law. God is unknowable in the personal sense; thus the goal of Islam is to obey Allah, not to know him.
*SOME OTHER FACTS ABOUT ISLAM:*
–muslims are ALLOWED TO LIE for the spread of islam; Muhammad advised his soldiers to lie to a tribe of Jews in order to be able to defeat them later; Qur’an (16:106 , Qur’an3:28 , Qur’an9:3, Qur’an40:28, Qur’an2:225, Qur’an 3:54, 8:30 and 10:21 also from Hadith: Bukhari 52:269, Bukhari 49:857, Bukhari 84:64-65, Muslim 32:6303, Bukhari 50:369, also The Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveler (p.746 – 8.2) allows to lie in special situations. It is why Obama lies that he is a Christian, when in fact he is a Muslim (search ‘Obama is a Muslim’ on youtube or google). Jesus said Satan is the father of lies Jn8:44.
–muslims say the QURAN WAS UNCHANGED since its writing, archeology has proven that it did change:
–WOMEN’S STATUS is Islam: women prisoner of war can be abused sexually Sura 4:24 (often in front of their husband before he was killed); a wife can be beaten for disobedience by the husband; husband can divorce his wife as he pleases; a woman receive only half rights of inheritance as compared to their brothers; a woman that is sexually abused must produce 4 witnesses in court; see more:
–Muslims believe that Muhammad is THE COMFORTER that Jesus announced to be sent from the Father in John 14/26 and 16/13 but Jesus gives the comforter’s name: the Holy Spirit. Muhammad was in fact prophesied by Jesus indeed: ”many false prophets will come in My Name…” Matt24:5, Luke21:8, Mark13:6
–MUHAMMAD’S SEXUAL LIFE: he asked his adopted son to divorce his wife so that he could ‘marry her’; sex with slaved allowed; he would often go from one wife to another all night, even without washing in between (Bukhari, volume 7, # 142); “Muta Marriage” is a marriage that lasts for a few hours, for the purpose of sex, we would call it prostitution; Sura 33/50 Allah allowed Muhammad to have as many wives as he wanted while his followers could only have four Sura4/3; Muhammad was dressing in women clothes, see Sahih Bukhari 2/911; 44 Islamic books—including some highly respected collections, such as Sunan Bayhaqi, Sunan Bayhaqi and Al Halabi state that Muhammad had homosexual habits; a hadith by Abu Hurreira says Muhammad was sucking the tongues of boys and girls; see more:
In the last 10 years more Muslims have become Christians than in all history combined. Jesus is drawing many to Himself! Let’s continue to pray for Muslims and to witness to them!
