Today we are going to pick up where we left of yesterday. We had learned that when Muhammad received his first “revelations” from the jinn, he didn’t know whether it was a demon or an angel. He feared that his people would think he was demon possessed, and considered committing suicide.
Tradition tells us that it was his wife, his uncle, and a slave convinced him that it was not a demon, it was the angel Gabriel.
The revelation given to Muhammad was given as the final revelation, which meant that it was going to contradict every revelation that came before it, including the Torah, and the New Testament. According to this revelation, the entire Bible has been corrupted, and Allah was giving revelation to Muhammad to correct this.
I often hear that the Qur’an and the Bile have many common stories. There are some stories that are similar, but the entire purpose of the Qur’an was to refute every revelation that came before it.
It is important to note that all of the revelation given to Muhammad comes from a spirit that he first thought was a demon. Others had to convince him that it was the angel Gabriel. Every Muslim will acknowledge that the Qur’an came through this spirit.
Everything we have said thus far is critical because the foundation upon which a house is built will determine how solid the house is. A corrupt foundation will cause the house to crumble. If it was a demon that visited Muhammad, it means that the entire foundation of this religion is satanic. Even Muslims believe that demons come from Satan.
On the other side of the issue, if it was Gabriel, the revelation he gave should not contradict previous revelation from God. Gabriel is seen in both Testaments. It was the angel Gabriel that visited Mary to announce the birth of our Lord. He is the one who said the Jesus was Emmanuel, God come in the flesh.
There being no contradictions between the revelation of the Bible and the revelation of the Qur’an. Instead we see the exact opposite. The Qur’an contradicts every major tenant of the Bible. This means that if the Qur’an is correct, the Bible must be thrown in the garbage. This is exactly what Muslims believe.
If the Qur’an comes from a demon it should be rejected. If it truly comes from God, then all of us should become Muslims. If the Qur’an is from God, then it should agree with the Bible, but if it is from a demon there are certain tings we should expect to find.
The Devil wants to destroy mankind because we are made in the image of God. Every time he looks at man, Satan is reminded of God, of His power, and the judgment that will, one day, fall upon him. He hates mankind and everything that reminds him of this. The message of Islam is all about killing. Islam is a religion of death. It not only wants to kill all of those outside Islam, it kills Muslims who are not fundamental enough, and it teaches Muslims to kill themselves for Allah.
The Qur’an contradicts every major doctrine concerning Jesus Christ. It takes away His deity, His crucifixion, burial and resurrection, His shedding of His blood for our sins, etc. All of these are essential for the Gospel. You can see that the message of the Qur’an is a mastermind conceived by the Devil.
Some say that there are common stories in both the Bible and the Qur’an. They both talk about Adam, Abraham, and Moses. The first major difference is that, according to the Qur’an, these were all prophets of Allah, and they were all Muslims. The Jesus (Isa) of the Qur’an is a Muslim and only a prophet.
The stories of the Bible are distorted in the Qur’an. For example, the story of Abraham offering his son, Isaac, is changed to say that it was Ishmael, not Issac that was offered. Satan is a masterful deceiver, that is why the Bible calls him the father of lies. Satan takes a little bit of truth, and then perverts it. The bottom line is that Islam is either the only revelation, or it is demonic. There is no middle ground.
Good scholarly examination of the Qur’an and Islamic doctrine shows Islam for the false religion it its. There has been, through the centuries, a thorough examination of the Bible. If the same were true of the Qur’an it would be found to be false. The Bible has stood the test of time and found to be reliable. This is why Muslims are told not to question or study things out for themselves. They are told that if they do, they can go to Hell. Muslims know very little about the Qur’an because to study it is discouraged.
We will stop here today, but come back tomorrow and we will continue looking at the sources of Islamic doctrine.
