I have been called upon on several occasions in Ghana to preach on the "Examination of Muslim Religion," both in public and in the Lord's church. I went to Nigeria and stayed there for four years. Since about 50% of the population are Muslims, I preached this same subject in some of the churches of the Lord and to Muslims as well. I have, on the strength of this, produced this tract for all loving people of God. Adjei-Mensah
Muhammed founded the Muslim religion early in the Seventh Century. His followers call their faith Islam, which means submission (to the will of Allah). Their sacred book is called the Quran (or Koran), which means reading. We will undertake our examination of some of the teachings of this book.
Muhammed affirms Jesus is a prophet. In the same chapter, verses 151 and 152, Muhammed again says, Disbelieving in one Messenger [prophet] of Allah, is to disbelieving all and these indeed are veritable disbelievers, and we have prepared for the disbelieving an humiliating punishment.
Jesus, a prophet of Allah says, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. (John 14.6, NAS).
Since all Muslims should believe in Christ, the prophet of Allah, any Muslim who thinks he can bypass Christ and go to the Father is a disbeliever and humiliating punishment awaits him. Jesus, being a prophet of Allah, cannot tell lies. To disbelieve what Jesus said is to disbelieve Muhammed and the Quran (4:151-152).
Muhammed said again, God told Mary through an angel that I may bestow on thee a righteous son, and Mary said, How can I have a son when no man has touched me, neither have I been unchaste? The angel replied, Thus it is. But says thy Lord, it is easy for me; and we shall do so that we may make him a sign unto men... (Q. 19:20-23).
If it is Allah who gave the righteous Son to Mary while a virgin, then the Quran itself proves that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
God is the Father of what the seed given to Mary produced.
Muhammed is a prophet of war and hatred---Jesus is a prophet of peace and love. Which of these two is from the merciful God?
Quran 29:47 says, We [Muslims] believe in that which has been revealed to us and that which has been revealed to you [Christians]; and our God and your God is One. How can Muslims believe in two things that contradict one another?
Since God forbids killing and hatred, all should endeavor to follow a prophet of peace and love: Jesus Christ.
Many people desired to see miracles from Muhammed, but he did none. (Q. 17:91-95). However, in Q. 5:111, Muhammed clearly said that Jesus performed many miracles including raising the dead and healing the blind.
Why did leading people of God perform miracles? Moses performed miracles before the people of Israel and Egypt so they would know that God had sent him. (Exodus 4.1-5). Jesus performed miracles for the people to believe that "Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name." (John 20.30-31, NAS).
Why then couldn't Muhammed also perform miracles? The reason is obvious: Muhammed was an imposter; God did not send him. (Jeremiah 23.21-22).
What if I am riding in a vehicle or in an airplane and an accident is about to occur? I am afraid and want to pray, but there is no water or "pure dust" around. Will I tell the airplane to wait for me to go to water or pure dust so I can pray before the accident?
The Muslims are not consistent with their doctrine. They refer to John 13.4-17 where Jesus washed the feet of His disciples to confirm their teaching. This scripture cannot support their false teaching. In verses 14 and 15 Jesus said, "If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you." (John 13.14,15, NAS).
Jesus said, Wash one another's feet.. He said nothing about washing your own feet nor did He make this a religious obligation.
Jesus did not tell anyone to wash hands, head, ears, and anus before prayer. If you do, you are adding to God's law. (Deuteronomy 4.2).
Because of its importance, Jesus washed the feet himself to set an example. (verse 15). What was Jesus teaching here? Only one thing: If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet... If a Master serves a servant, it means the servant should serve more than the Master did. Therefore Jesus was teaching humility and service with that fine illustration.
God will never call for water or dust for the same prayer. Our God is not a God of confusion. (1 Corinthians 14.33). God requires nothing physical from anybody before praying--only a pure life and heart. (Isaiah 59.1-2).
Muslims who demand the washing of feet before prayer are condemned before God for adding to God's word. (Revelation 22.18-19).
Why should they fight and kill the unbelievers of the Muslim religion if it is not their responsibility to let them follow the right path?
"There should be no compulsion in religion..." (Q. 2:257). Why then do they compel people to become Muslims by threat and killing? This is a big contradiction of the Quran indeed.
Why should the good God use Jesus' death to deceive many in order to get them to hell?
Is God a respecter of persons?
Does He want only a handful of people to be saved?
Can any responsible person believe that the good and merciful God would deceive people who are anxious to worship Him?
Listen to Muhammed again: and we gave him [Jesus] the Gospel which contained guidance and light. (verse 47).
Where there is guidance and light no one can miss his or her way to God. I, therefore, invite all Muslim friends to join Christians in worshipping God through the New Testament which Muhammed, their own prophet, says contains guidance and light. (Muhammed cannot be wrong here.)
Listen to Muhammed once more: and whoso judges not by what Allah has revealed, these it is who are rebellious. (verse 48). If a Christian doesn't judge by this, he is rebellious. If a Muslim doesn't judge by this, he is rebellious. All who will not judge by this are rebellious.
All rebellious people have missed the light and guidance, therefore they have missed the way to God. If you miss the way to God, you go to Satan-- straight to hell. (Quran 4:168-170).
You can't live wrong and die right, for, Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7, NAS).
