Is the God of Muslims the same as the Christian God?

The answer is no. In the case of Catholics, Protestant’s, Orthodox and many others the answer is no In the denominations where the Trinity is worshiped the Father is God, the Son is God and the Holey Spirit is God in a Trinity. In Islam there is no trinity. God is ONE. Muslims worship the One and Only God, the creator of all things as the Jews do and all the prophets including Jesus (pbuh).  Some Christians denominations do not worship a Trinity, they worship God the creator but they do believe that God as a Son. In Islam, God Read More

Is the God of the Bible the same as the God of the Quran?

Yes, The God of the Bible and the Quran are the same though Christians will deny this fact because they were taught to believe in the Trinity,  a man-made believe. You can read more about the Trinity and how it came into practice under the Christianity tab of this website. Nowhere in the Bible can the word Trinity be found, nor did Jesus (pbuh) ever teach the Trinity.  The fact that God is referred to as Allah in the Quran and different names in the Bible like Yahwe, Elohim, El Elyon, Eli etc. does not mean that these are different Read More

Do Muslims Worship the Kaaba?

No, Muslims worship God in heaven. The Khaba also known asal-Masjid al-Haram  is the house of God on earth and it is the direction of prayer Muslims face when performing the obligatory prayer (Salah). Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 19:      Narrated Al-Bara:      We prayed along with the Prophet facing Jerusalem for sixteen or seventeen months.      Then Allah ordered him to turn his face towards the Qibla (in Mecca):–      “And from whence-so-ever you start forth (for prayers) turn your face in the direction      of (the Sacred Mosque of Mecca) Al-Masjid-ul Haram..” (2.149) The Prophet Muhammad Read More

What is the significance of the black stone in the Kaaba?

Christians most often make comments stating that Muslims worship the black stone in the Kaaba and that is why they kiss it. This is absolutely false.  In order to get a better understanding I will give you some background and context.  The scholars of Islam have differed on who first built the Kaaba. Some say that it was built by the angels. Others say the father of humankind, Adam first built the Kaaba but over many centuries it fell into disrepair and was lost in the mists of time, to be rebuilt  by Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael on Read More

Do Muslims worship a moon God?

This question and many others like it are all cynical statements which Christians make against Muslims. I have seen Christian websites with long articles written trying to prove that Muslims worship a moon God. Every website has different theories on this proving that these are all made up fairy tales to stop Christians from converting to Islam. The websites actually state that Christians should not convert to Islam as Muslims worship a pagan moon God. They use the crescent moon and star symbol which are found on the tops of the minarets of certain mosque and also used as the Read More

Does the Quran order the killing of none believers?

The word Islam in Arabic is derived from root word “salam” which means peace. Another word in the semantic field of “salam” is “aslaam” which means submission. So through the system of meaning in the semantic field, Islam is a religion revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) through which believers attain peace through submission to God.  We find clear proof in the Quran that there is no compulsion to be Muslim. People are free to believe in what they want.  There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and Read More

Does Islam teach terrorism?

Absolutely not, Islam does not teach the killings of innocent people. In the previous post you can see that the 4 verses that Christian quote where killing is mentioned in specific context and only pertains to the Makkan pagans at the time doe not promote killing of innocent people today. There are no other Quran verses that orders any killings of innocent people. This is a stigma that the west has placed on Islam as part of it’s propaganda campaign. The few Muslims that kill innocent people are nothing more than murderers. There is no way for them to justify Read More

Is there proof that Muhammad (pbuh) was really a prophet?

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a Prophet and a messenger and when God send his messengers God always gives us proof that they were sent by Him. God gave Solomon (pbuh) the ability to speak to animals and control nature, God bestowed Moses (pbuh) with many miracles to prove to the people that he was sent by Him and God bestowed Jesus (pbuh) with many miracles so that the people would believe that God had sent him.  The Bible tells us how to test if a Prophet is from God:  1 John:1-3 – Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the Read More

Is there proof that the Quran is the word of God?

The first thing you need to know is that Prophet Muhammad was unlettered. He could neither read nor write and this was Allah’s plan as people would say that Muhammad (pbuh) wrote it himself. A person who is unlettered can in no way be a master of language and writing. This skill can only be acquired and developed with practice of reading and writing. Please refer to the previous question and answer: “Is there proof that Muhammad (pbuh) was really a Prophet of God?” The answer provided to this question proves that Muhammad (pbuh) was a Prophet of God and Read More

Did the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) really marry Aisha when she was only 9 years old?

The first thing you should know is that the thought of marrying Aisha had never crossed Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) mind. Aisha reports that it was a command from God.  Aisha reported: Gabriel came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, with her image on a green, silken cloth and he said, “Verily, this is your wife in this world and in the Hereafter.” Source: Sunan al-Tirmidhī 3880 Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Albani Today we understand that the Prophet’s marriage to Aisha was  crucial as she played a major roll in Islam.  Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) occupies Read More

Does Islam force Muslim women to wear the Hijab (the headscarf)

Islam does not force anything upon any person but God does point out that the one who rejects evil and choses the right way will be successful.  There is no compulsion in religion. The Right Way stands clearly distinguished from the wrong. Hence he who rejects the evil ones and believes in Allah has indeed taken hold of the firm, unbreakable handle. And Allah (Whom he has held for support) is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Quran 2:256) God does tell the believing women to cover their heads and their bodies and not to reveal their adornments other than to those to whom Read More
