Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Islam: The Religion of the Devil – Part 2

Listen to today’s broadcast:

MuhammadToday I want to continue the subject we started yesterday. As one studies the history of Islam he will be convinced that the Prophet Muhammad believed that he was demon possessed. This is unlike any other prophet of God.

What we will be discussing will come from the scriptures of Islam. As we look into them I believe you will be convinced that this is not the religion of God, but rather the religion of the enemy of God, the Devil.

First I want to finish discussing the error of equating Allah with Jehovah. They are not the same God and our missionaries who use the name Allah when referring to Jehovah are making a huge mistake.

It is the Muslims who are telling us that the god of Muhammad, Allah, is the same god as the God of the Bible. They tell us that Allah created Adam and he is the god of Moses. They want us to believe that he is the same God the we Christians call Jehovah.

The characteristics of Allah and the characteristics of Jehovah are not the same. In fact, they stand in opposition to one another.

  • Jehovah has a begotten Son — Allah has no son
  • Jehovah is complex (3 in ONE) — Allah is simplex
  • Jehovah never changes — Allah can not only change his mind, he can also change his nature.
  • Jehovah Loves Sinners — Allah hates sinners

The thing that I don’t understand is why would Christians use the name “Allah” when they are referring to Jehovah? This blurs the line between Christianity and Islam. Confusing Allah and Jehovah opens the door for the religion of Chrislam, which is the mixing of the two religions.

Those who confuse the two are aiding and abetting Islam. The Qur’an teaches that the Bible has been corrupted and Allah had to send Muhammad, the final prophet, to correct the Christians and all of the things we have been taught in the Bible. Those who confuse Allah and Jehovah do so by claiming that by using Allah they are better able to reach Muslims. In fact they are confusing Muslims. We should be bringing them out of Islam and telling them that God is jealous of His name and He has given us His names in the Bible.

Shahram is from Iran and He speaks Farsi and he was able to learn the Hebrew names of God. Why can’t the Arab Christians learn the Hebrew names for God? Why can’t the Muslims in other countries like Indonesia, Pakistan, etc. learn the Hebrew names of God? The reason is they are trying to meld the two religions together.

The Bible predicts a one-world religion in the last days. This bringing together of the world’s two largest religions is a step toward that end. We as Christians must continue to stand for the God of the Bible, Jehovah.

Let me take a moment to explain the missionary point of view. Missionaries are taught that when they go to the mission field they are not to try to start an American church. The are to start a church that is in step with the culture. While this is true, we must not confuse doctrinal issues.

The more you learn about Islam, the more you will see its satanic roots. The Devil wants to destroy, and Islam destroys everything that is not in line with their beliefs. Islam enslaves and oppresses. Christianity edifies (builds up), liberates, and makes one free.

Devil tries to Counterfeit Jehovah God. This is confirmed by Scripture.

2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

We are mark those who teach false doctrine.

Ro 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Now I want to look at the “calling” of the Prophet Muhammad. Remember that in the seventh century paganism was rampant in the Arabian Peninsula. The Kabah in Mecca had 360 idols with Allah being the chief “god” over all of the others. It was a place of Babylonian worship.

We have had Walid Shoebat on our broadcast in the past. His son, Theodore, has done extensive research on the origin of the god called Allah. He has traced it back to its Babylonian roots in the 17th century BC.

Muhammad and his family were steeped in this Babylonian paganism. He believes that he gets a revelation from the angle Gabriel when he visited a cave in Hira. Here is the story from the Qur’an:

Sira No. 152…..

“…in the month of Ramadan in which God willed concerning him that He willed of His grace, the apostle set forth to Hira as was his wont. And his family with him. When it was the night on which God honoured him with this mission and showed mercy on His servants thereby, Gabriel brought him the command of God.

He came to me,’ said the apostle of God, ‘while I was asleep, with a coverlet of brocade whereon was some writing, and said, “Read!”

I said, “What shall I read?” he pressed me with it so tightly that I thought it was death; then he let me go and said, “Read!”

I said, “What shall I read?”

He pressed me with it again so that I thought it was death; then he let me go and said “Read!”

I said, :What shall I read?”

He pressed me with it the third time so that I thought I was death and said “Read!”

I said, “What then shall I read?”

And this I said only to deliver myself from him, lest he should do the same to me again.

He said: “Read in the name of thy Lord who created, Who created man of the blood coagulated. Read! Thy Lord is the most beneficent, who taught by the pen, Taught that which they knew not unto men.”

So I read it, and he departed from me. And I awoke from my sleep, and it was as though these words were written on my heart.”

Remember, Muhammad was illiterate. He could not read, yet here he says he read what the spirit told him to read. In other accounts of this same story he told the spirit that he did not read.

Here is the account from the Buhkari Hadith:

Buhkari Hadith – Vol 6 Book5 81

The angel came to him in it and said, ‘Read!’

The Prophet said, ‘I said, “I do not read.”

He seized me and squeezed me until all the strength went out of me and then released me and said, “Read!”

I said, “I do not read.”

Then he seized me and squeezed me a second time until all the strength when out of me and then released me and said, “Read!”

I said, “I do not read.”

Then he seized me and squeezed me a third time…..

He returned with that and his heart was quaking. He went to Khadija and said, ‘Wrap me up! Wrap me up!’ They wrapped him up until the STATE OF TERROR had left him and then he said to Khadija, ‘What is wrong with me?’……the Prophet became so sad that we heard that his sorrow several times made him want to throw himself off the tops of the mountains.”

Muhammad was so bothered by what had happened that he wanted to commit suicide. This is so unlike any of the prophets of the Bible.

In Arabic the spirit is called the Jin. It is where we get the word “genie”, like the one from Aladdin and the lamp. There are other words in Arabic for angles. Muhammad was not sure if this was an angle or a demon. Muhammad, himself, thought he was demon possessed.

Sira No. 153 & 154 (Ishaq)

I thought, Woe is me POET OR POSSESSED – Never shall Quraysh say this of me! I will go to the top of the mountain and throw myself down that I may kill myself and gain rest. So I went forth to do so and then) when I was midway on the mountain, I heard a voice from heaven saying ‘O Muhammad! thou are the apostle of God and I am Gabriel.


Sira No. 154 (Ishaq)

So when Gabriel came to him, as he was wont, the apostle said to Khadija, ‘This is Gabriel who has just come to me.’

Get up, O son of my uncle,’ she said, ‘ and sit by my left thigh’.

The apostle did so, and she said, ‘Can you see him?’

Yes,’ he said.

She said, ‘Then turn round and sit on my right thigh.’ He did so, and she said, ‘Can you see him?’

When he said that he could she asked him to move and sit in her lap.

When he had done this she again asked if he could see him, and when he said yes. She disclosed her form and cast aside her veil while the apostle was sitting in her lap.

Then she said, ‘Can you see him?’

And he replied, ‘No.’

She said ‘O son of my uncle, rejoice and be of good heart, by God he is an angel and not a satan.’

I told ‘Abdullah b Hasan this story and he said,

I heard my mother Fatima, daughter of Husayn, talking about this tradition from Khadija, but as I heard it she made the apostle of God come inside her shift, (sexual intercourse) and thereupon Gabriel departed, and she said to the apostle of God, “This verily is an angel and not a satan.”

In the mind of Khadija, one of Muhammad’s wives, it was this sexual activity that determined whether it was an angle or a demon. I suppose she thought that if it was a demon that he would have stayed and watched the show, but since he left, it was probably and angle. I doubt that this is a good test because I am sure that the sexual activity would have taken the focus of Muhammad off of the vision.

I am going to stop here for today. We will continue on this subject in tomorrow’s post.
