Islam means "submission to God in peace". Islam teaches there is only One God, whose primary name is "Allah" in the Arabic language. Islam is the same essential message given to all the prophets, from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and finally to the Last Prophet, Muhammad, (peace be upon them all). They all proclaimed the same basic Divine message: worship only God, stop worshipping human beings and other created things There's a different between Islam and Muslims!! What's the purpose of life? What Do You Know About Islam? Not what you have heard about Islam, not what you have seen in the actions of some Muslims, but what do you really know about Islam?

Sub-section One: the texts they cite from the Gospel as evidence to prove redemption and how to refute them:




Sub-section One: the texts they cite from the Gospel as evidence to prove redemption and how to refute them:



1. We read in John: “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”[1] Notice the contradiction between this text and another text where Jesus rebukes the man who described him as a good teacher: “Why callest thou me good? None is good, save one, that is, God.”[2]

2. In John we also read: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”[3] The declaration that Jesus is the only son of Allah is not mentioned save by John. Why do the other Gospels not mention it albeit it is a significant doctrine in Christianity?

3. In Mark we read: “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”[4] These texts are none but falsities and allegations to justify the story of the Crucifixion that they believed and had faith in. “They claimed that the Crucifixion was the real honor and the supreme goal of the Message of Christ, and but for the Crucifixion Christ wound not have come. They continued chattering on this matter and trying to search for justifications to make it acceptable and rational. But their speech in reality complicates the issue and confuses the readers and the audience.”[5]
