Which Book is Right?
Are you one nation, one people, or are you a divided nation and a divided people who needs a common enemy to create the illusion? Are you really a nation of peace and tolerance? Then why will you not give the same freedom to Christians and Jews that you demand here? You can build your mosques wherever you want. Why can't we build one church in Saudi Arabia or Iran, let alone a synagogue? If you’re a religion of peace and tolerance, why do you still allow slavery of children and blacks, even though you call it by another name? If you're a nation of peace and tolerance, why do your scholars have to come to France, Britain, and America to publish? If Allah is giving you the victory in the Jihad, how come He’s not giving it to you? How come the God of Israel has given it to them? In the schism between the Sunni and Shi’a it was said Allah would determine who he favors on the battlefield. So then, by the standards of Islam, God has favored the Jews. Why is it that the West had to liberate Kuwait? You have no Ummah, you have no Salim, you have no victory in Jihad. But the real question is, do you have salvation?
One of the pillars of Islam as you know is “Insha’Allah” – everything that happens whether good or bad is Allah’s will. There is no assurance of salvation. And salvation is obtained by submission to Allah’s will as defined in the Quran. But given the fact that there are so many things in the Quran which cannot possibly be true logically and reasonably, given the fact that the teachings of Islam have not been able to produce the freedom and prosperity that exist in the West, let alone the peace or the justice, how can you be sure it can give salvation?
I’ve considered the claims of Mohammed, of the Quran, and of the Hadith, and I have these five questions. I'd asked them of you. I invite you to e-mail me with your response or write us here in Britain:
Moriel P.O. Box 201 Maidenhead SL69FB
I invite you to write me, explain Mohammed’s marriage to Ayesha, explain the Islamic position on slavery and women, explain the findings of your Orientalists, explain why there is no Ummah, no victory in your Jihad. If you can’t answer those questions, how can you be sure Islam can give you salvation?
I’ve considered the claims of your religion. please consider the claims of Jesus. In John 5:24 He says…
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.
He’s promising eternal life if you really believe that He died for your sins, to pay the price for what you did. And I'm reading from the apostle Peter, 1 Peter 1:3…
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…
…according to His great mercy..
No, God does have a Son. Not begotten by sex, but begotten from eternity. He always existed.
…according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled that will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in this last time.
I’ve considered the claims of Mohammed. If you are fair and reasonable you will consider the claims of Jesus.
I don't desire your destruction; I desire your salvation. I don't desire to discredit your religion for the sake of offending anybody; I desire to arrive at the truth. I have questions – serious questions – and I've asked them. If you have serious questions, please answer my questions and then I’ll answer yours.
