Only Religion before Allah (God) is Islam (submission to His Will)



Only religion before ALLAH (God) is ISLAM (PEACE) which was the religion of All Prophets of ALLAH God Almighty

Bible orders you to become a muslim.

Job 22:21 
"Submit to God and be at Peace with him ..."

What is the translation of this in Arabic ?!! 

"Aslim" (i.e Be a Muslim)

Do you need more explanation about Islam ?!!

Submit to God and be at Peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you. Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored ..." (Job 22:21-23)
21 اسْتَسْلِمْ إِلَى اللهِ


Luke 24:36  
وَفِيمَا هُمَا يَتَكَلَّمَانِ بِذَلِكَ، وَقَفَ يَسُوعُ نَفْسُهُ فِي وَسَطِهِمْ، وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «سَلاَمٌ لَكُمْ!»  36 ( And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.)

John 20:19

Arabic Bible: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-AR)
19 وَفِي مَساءِ ذَلِكَ اليَوْمِ، أوَّلِ أيّامِ الأُسْبُوعِ، كانَ التَّلامِيْذُ قَدِ اختَبَأُوا فِي مَكانٍ مُغلَقِ الأبوابِ خَوفاً مِنَ اليَهُودِ. فَجاءَ يَسُوعُ وَوَقَفَ أمامَهُمْ وَقالَ: «السَّلامُ مَعْكُمْ.» 
Jesus came and stood among them and said to them,“Peace be with you.”


Note : Muslims also say in original Salamalaikum. Arabic and aramaic are sister languages. Hebrew alphabet has no "seen سَ " alphabet and arabic has (seen) and (sheen) alphabets both. Salamalaikum in arabic is Shalamalaikum in hebrew. (لَكُمْ means on you) .


John 20:21 فَقالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ ثانِيَةً: «السَّلامُ مَعْكُمْ. كَما أرسَلَنِي الآبُ، فَإنِّي أنا أُرسِلُكُمُ الآنَ.»  21 (Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you ................ ) http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=john%2020:21&version=KJV
Salam ma'akum means peace be with you. (مَعْ means with you) 

QURAN
6:54. When those come to thee who believe in Our signs, Say: "Peace be on you: Your Lord hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) mercy: verily, if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amend (his conduct), lo! He is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful.

16:32. (Namely) those whose lives the angels take in a state of purity, saying (to them), "Peace be on you; enter ye the Garden, because of (the good) which ye did (in the world)."

Chapter Mary:19:47. Abraham said: "Peace be on thee: I will pray to my Lord for thy forgiveness: for He is to me Most Gracious.

Islam is mentioned BY NAME in the LAST TESTAMENT by ALLAH our creator:

Quran 3:19. The Religion before Allah is Islam (Submission to His Will): Nor did the People of the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.

Muslim is mentioned BY NAME in the LAST TESTAMENT by ALLAH our creator:

3:52. When Jesus found Unbelief on their part He said: "Who will be My helpers to (the work of) Allah." Said the disciples: "We are Allah.s helpers: We believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims. 3:64. Say: "O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah. that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah." If then they turn back, say ye: "Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah.s Will). 3:65. Ye People of the Book! Why dispute ye about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel Were not revealed Till after him? Have ye no understanding?

5:111. "And behold! I inspired the disciples to have faith in Me and Mine Messenger. they said, 'We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims'". 5:112. Behold! the disciples, said: "O Jesus the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?" Said Jesus: "Fear Allah, if ye have faith."

7:126. "But thou dost wreak thy vengeance on us simply because we believed in the Signs of our Lord when they reached us! Our Lord! pour out on us patience and constancy, and take our souls unto thee as Muslims (who bow to thy will)!

16:89. One day We shall raise from all Peoples a witness against them, from amongst themselves: and We shall bring thee as a witness against these (thy people): and We have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims. 16:102. Say, the Holy Spirit has brought the revelation from thy Lord in Truth, in order to strengthen those who believe, and as a Guide and Glad Tidings to Muslims. 22:78. And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive, (with sincerity and under discipline). He has chosen you, and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation); that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer, give regular Charity, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protector - the Best to protect and the Best to help! 28:53. And when it is recited to them, they say: "We believe therein, for it is the Truth from our Lord: indeed we have been Muslims (bowing to Allah.s Will) from before this.

2:127. And remember Abraham and Isma'il raised the foundations of the House (With this prayer): "Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us: For Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-knowing. 2:128. "Our Lord! make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy (Will), and of our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy (will); and show us our place for the celebration of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in Mercy); for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

 All Prophets were Muslims and prayed like Muslims pray



All Prophets were Muslims see the Jews are now admitting clearly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8MChk7i_gE


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIWQGqzVVIk When Pharoah was going to die when he was drowning he said he wanted to follow the religion of Moses and wanted to become a Muslim.


Following is the 4 line definition of who Allah (God) is:

Surah 112. The Unity, Sincerity, Oneness Of Allah
1. Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; 2. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; 3. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; 4. And there is none like unto Him.


So Dear Christians are you aware that Easa son of Mary http://neurotherapy-of-christian-brain.blogspot.com/2012/05/original-name-of-jesus-pbuh.html never heard the word Jesus or christians and jews. Their original names were greekanized by prefixing J for Jesus its and suffixing "s or es" as a greek tradition this phenomena is called J-walking. 

Musa (Moses) never heard the word Judaism he never heard in his life. The simple statement if we will meet him in the hereafter inshaAllah he will say if we ask what is your religion we dont expect him to say Judaism/jew because he never heard this word. What we expect him to say is "My religion is total Submission to Allah (God)'s will." One word for that in Arabic and its sister languages Aramaic is ISLAM (Peace). Jesus said SHALOM (Peace) all Muslims say SALAM (Peace). (Courtesy Ahmed Deedat)

About the LABELS: Judaism, Christianity and Islam

Courtesy : Mohamed Moukhtar 

Yahud, translated Jews Yahudi, translated, Jew, Yahudiyah, translated Judaism, sounds more like Judea, which is a place in Palestine..In fact Judea is also translated al Yahudiyah in Arabic..Judeans are those who live in Judea, so a Judean is a native of Judea..

The sons of Jacob who is also called Israel in both the O.T and the Qur'an, are the Israelite, the Bani Israa2eel. But Judaism and Christianity are two faith, which people claim to adhere..What i meant to say is that, it is came to pass that a people claimed themselves as being Jews. God did not label them as such..So Judaism is a man-made name that men accordingly call themselves as such..

Nasaara, translated Christians, Nasraani, translated Christian, Nasraaniyah, translated Christianity, sounds more like Nazareth, which is also a place in Palestine..In fact Nazareth is translated al Naasiryah in Arabic..Nazarenes are those who dwell at Nazareth, so a Nazarene is a native of Nazareth..

The followers of Jesus Christ also known as Jesus of Nazareth, called themselves the Nazarenes..Whether you call them Christians or Nazarenes ( Nasaara ) today, then again God did not label them as such..It came to pass that people claimed themselves as being Christians, Nazarenes ( Nasaara ). So Christianity, the Nazarene faith or ( Nasraaniyah ) is a man-made name that men accordingly call themselves as such..

Islam, which means Submission and Surrendering, is the name that Allah ( God ) applies to those who Sincerely Worship Him, whatever their place in Human History and Geography..
It is the Religion that is acceptable to Allah ( God )..And it is the Faith that Allah accepted for the those who believe in the Final Book of Revelation and the Prophetic Office of Mohammad..PBUH

أَمْ تَقُولُونَ إِنَّ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَالأَسْبَاطَ كَانُوا هُودًا أَوْ نَصَارَى قُلْ أَأَنْتُمْ أَعْلَمُ أَمِ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ كَتَمَ شَهَادَةً عِنْدَهُ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَمَا اللَّهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ البقرة:140
" Or do ye claim that Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes were Hudan ( Jews ) or Nasaara ( Christians ). Say ( O Mohammad ): Is it that you are more Knowledgeable or Allah?
And who is more unjust than him who suppresses a witness that is with him from Allah. And certainly Allah is not negligent of what ye do." Al Baqara ( the Heifer ) :140


I hope this will make the choice of religion very easy!!!

Further a Jew Rabbi Ben Abraham also confirms in his article " Islam in the Bible" 
http://www.facebook.com/notes/ben-abrahamson/qurban-shelamim-islam-in-the-bible/202642339761814 

In the New Testament it is written "Blessed are the peacemakers..." (Matthew 5:9). The greek word is eirhnopoioi, which is usually translated "those who make peace", but could be be translated as "Muslims". The Peshitta has תוביהון לעבדי שלמא and עבדי שלמא looks very much like Onkelos' שלמאי
The above expression in Matthew 5:9 is comparable to that in the Psalms: Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands. (Psalms 112:1) 
Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways (Psalms 128:1). 
These "God fearers" are referred to as yireh shamayim, bnai noah, or ger toshav in hebrew, theosebea in greek, and salamai or Muslamai in aramaic. 

One can see that the name 'Islam' was not given by Muslims themselves, nor by Arabs, nor by other people, nor by Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). Neither has the name itself acquired the usage in the course of time. The names 'Islam' and 'Muslim' are given by Allah SWT Himself.

This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed my favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion (Surat Al Maeda 5:3)

...It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this [Revelation]. (Surat Al Hajj 22:78)

Islam is not a new religion, which was founded or started by Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). The term 'Muslim' goes back much further than Mohammed (pbuh). In the Qur'an, it is explained that the Prophet's (pbuh) role was to complete the original message, fulfillment of the original religion, as revealed from Allah SWT.

Full quotes:

Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah; that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, Allah is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surat Al Maeda 5:3)

And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive, (with sincerity and under discipline). He has chosen you, and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation); that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer, give regular Charity, and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector - the Best to protect and the Best to help! (Surat Al Hajj 22:78)


Shalom as Islam in The Beloved and I, such as in 
Isaiah 33:7 
Hear “Their lion of God” they cry,
Messengers of Islam come by
With bitter weeping where
 they steer.
8 Desolate are highways so that
The traffic ceases on the path,
He has broken the covenant,
He’s despised enemies in slant,
Esteeming no man in his wrath.
9 The earth mourns and withers in frown,
Shamed Lebanon’s trees are cut down,
Sharon is like a wilderness,
Bashan and Carmel shake distress.

Isaiah prophesies the falling down
Of the Assyrian of golden crown,
And at the same time looks down through the years
To coming of Islam and all the tears
That coming makes, not just the spreading place
Of desert and of wilderness in trace
Of cedars of Lebanon failing grace,
But for the tears when that great lion of God
Exalted was stricken down to the sod
Of prayer by sword. All things are noted well
In ancient Scripture, as oracle’s spell.
Beloved, I beat my breast and weep to tell
The story of the fateful locust horde
That in Muhammad’s name raised up a sword.

My advice to all my christians (to be muslims inshaAllah) brothers  & sisters is that Embrace Islam as soon as possible. No one knows his time of death which can come anytime so avail this precious gift of life which is test for the hereafter and choose the right and straight way to God (ALLAH ALLMIGHTY) which is Islam. When the time for choosing the option in the test (Life) will be over you will NOT be given a second chance. Be wise and do the right thing (Chinese quote) for your own benefit and say ' THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH AND MUHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH .
Once you say and declare in your heart so simply enter the folds of ISLAM. 
May Allah help you to take the right decision inshaALLAH. Amen

Luke 18:19 - Aramaic http://neurotherapy-of-christian-brain.blogspot.ae/2012/05/religion-before-allah-is-islam.html 
ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܛܒܐ ܠܝܬ ܛܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܀
āmar leh yešūa mānā qārē ant lī ṭāḇā?

"And Jesus said unto him, Why do you call me good?
no one is good except Alaha (God) alone"
Aramaic translation 


LET US SEE BY A SIMPLE ANALYSIS THAT IF JESUS AND THE DISCIPLES WERE MUSLIMS OR NOT 

1. Jesus (pbuh) taught that there is only One God and Only God should be worshipped as taught in Deut 6:4, Mark 12:29. Muslims also believe this as taught in the Qur'an verse 4:171.

2. 
Jesus (pbuh) didn't eat pork as taught in Leviticus 11:7 , and neither do Muslims as taught in the Qur'an verse 6:145.

3. Jesus (pbuh) greeted with the words "as salaamu alaikum" (Peace be with you) in John 20:21. Muslims also greet each other this way.

4. Jesus (pbuh) always said "God Willing" (inshallah), Muslims say this too before doing anything as taught in the Qur'an verses 18:23-24.

5. Jesus (pbuh) washed his face, hands, and feet before praying. The Muslims do the same.

6. Jesus (pbuh) and other prophets of the Bible prayed with their head to the ground (see Matthew 26:39). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur'an verse 3:43.

7. Jesus (pbuh) had a beard and wore a throbe. It is Sunnah for Muslim men to do the same.

8. Jesus (pbuh) followed the law and believed in all the prophets, (see Matthew 5:17). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur'an verses 3:84, and 2:285.

9. Jesus' mother Maryam (pbuh) dressed modestly by fully covering her body and wearing a headscarf (hijab) as found in 1 Timothy 2:9, Genesis 24:64-65, and Corinthians 11:6. Muslim women modestly dress the same as taught in the Qur'an verse 33:59.

10. Jesus (pbuh) and other prophets of the Bible fasted up to 40 days (see Exodus 34:28, Daniel 10:2-6. 1Kings 19:8, and Matthew 4:1-11. Muslims do also during the month of Ramadan. Muslims are required to fast the full obligatory 30 days (see Qur'an 2:183), and others take it a step further by fasting an additional 6 days to increase their rewards.

11. Jesus (pbuh) taught to say "Peace to this house" when entering it (see Luke 10:5), and to also greet the people in the house with "peace be unto you". Muslims do exactly what Jesus did and taught. When we enter our homes and the homes of others we say "Bismillah" and also greet with "as salaamu alaikum" (peace be upon you) as taught in the Qur'an verse 24:61.

12. Jesus (pbuh) was circumcised. Circumcision is 1 of the 5 fitrah in Islam, so Muslim men are required to be circumsised. According to the Bible in Luke 2:21, Jesus was eight days old when he was circumcised. In the Torah, Allah/God stated to the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) that it is an "Everlasting covenant" (see Genesis 17:13). In the Qur'an verse 16:123 Muslims are required to follow the religion of Abraham. The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said, "The Prophet Abraham circumcised himself when he was eighty years old." (see Sahih hadith Bukhari, Muslim, and Ahmad).

13. Jesus (pbuh) spoke aramaic and called God "Elah", which is pronounced the same as "Allah". Aramaic is an ancient, Biblical language. It is one of the Semitic languages that also include Hebrew, Arabic, Ethiopic and the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian language of Akkadian. The Aramaic "Elah" and the Arabic "Allah" are the same. The Aramaic "Elah" is derived from the Arabic "Allah", and it means "GOD". "Allah" in Arabic also means "GOD", the Supreme GOD Almighty. You can easily see the similarity in their pronunciation so this concludes that the God of Jesus is also the God of the Muslims, of all mankind, and all that exist.
"Now these are some of the VALID REASONS WHY AND HOW WE MUSLIMS ARE LIKE JESUS (PBUH) AND TRUE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS THAN MOST CHRISTIANS BELIEVE

He(Jesus) Himself stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be to you.” - NewTestament (Luke 24:36)

Jesus said to them again, “peace be with you” - New Testament (John 20:21)
"And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house." - New Testament (Luke 10:5)
"And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally." (Qur'an, An-Nisa 4:86)
"O you who believe! enter not houses other than your own, until you have asked permission and greeted those in them, that is better for you, in order that you remember." (Qur'an, An-Nur 24:27)
"....But when you enter houses, greet one another with a greeting from God(The Creator), blessed and good...."(Qur'an, An-Nur 24:61)
Exchanging salaam (peace) holds a high position in Islam(Sumission to The Creator alone in peace). Not only is salaam equated with many other important deeds, but it is one of the defining criteria of belief.
a man asked the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) about which aspect of Islam was best. The Prophet replied:
"Feeding the hungry, and saying salaam to those you know and those you don't know." (Bukhari and Muslim)
The Prophet also said: "You will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another: 'spread salaam' (the greeting of peace) among you." (Muslim)
The Prophet Muhammad also explained another virtue of salaam in the following Hadith:
"When two Muslims meet (give salaam), and shake hands, they are forgiven their sins before they part (with each other)." (Abu Dawud)
Finally, reflect on another saying of the Prophet , when he said:
"O people! spread salaam(peace), feed the hungry, be in touch with your kin, and pray while people are asleep (at night) you shall enter paradise peacefully." (Tirmithi)
There are several forms of exchanging salaam(peace). Each has its grade which corresponds to the extent of the phrase.
There is a Hadith(saying of the prophet pbuh) where Imran Ibn Hussayn (may God be pleased with him) narrated that:
"A man came to the Prophet and said, 'assalaamu alaykum/peace be unto you!' The Prophet returned his greeting and when the man sat down, the Prophet said: 'Ten.' Another man came and said: 'assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah/peace be unto you and God’s mercy unto you.' to which the Prophet also responded, and when the man sat down, He said 'Twenty.' Another man came and said: 'assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh/peace be unto you and God’s mercy and blessings unto you.' The Prophet returned his greeting, and after the man sat down, he said: 'Thirty." (Abu Dawud and Tirmithi)
The Hadith has been interpreted to mean that the minimum form of the Islamic greeting which is acceptable is "assalaamu alaykum" and one is rewarded ten good deeds for saying it. The second grade, adding "wa rahmatullah", raises the reward to twenty good deeds. The best grade of salaam is "assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu", and this is worth thirty good deeds.
The response to the greeting is similar in form and rewards. The least one could say is "Wa alaykum-us-salaam/and upon you be peace" and the best response is: "Wa alaykum-us-salaam wa rahmatulahi wa barakatahu/ and upon you be peace God’s mercy and blessings".
In the time of the Prophet the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet ) would compete with each other, to see who could give salaams first.
The Prophet peace be upon said:
"The best of the two persons is the one who begins with salaam." (Related by Nawawi in his book Al-Adkar)
returning the salaams (greeting of peace) after it is offered is considered 'wagib'/obligatory, based on the first Qur'anic ayah/verse mentioned.
"You have indeed in the Messenger of God(The Creator), a beautiful pattern for anyone whose hope is in God(The Creator) and the Last Day."
(Qur'an, Al-Ahzab 33:21)

  1. be logical, my brother. If p"peace be with you" make you a Muslim, if considering the factor of logic, should all the Muslims be Christians as Christ Yehoshua said to them first? this is the inherited problem of Aarab people after they were rejected as Abraham's legitimate offspring. read Genesis.

  2. "Islam is not a new religion, which was founded or started by Prophet Mohammed (pbuh)."?? Islam is about in 7th century, which is more than 600 ears after Christianity. You have no proof nor you can prove that what Mohammed received were from G-d. as your "prophet" claimed he was the last prophet of Allah, if what he received were not from G-d, then all Muslims could be deceived. your faith has a very dangerous and dark area that you Muslims must be aware of.
    if you believe one G-d as Christian believes, then this One G-d must be a living G-d. if He is a living G-d, why he cannot talk to Muslims as he talks to Christians even nowadays?

  3. the Prophets of Israel heard from G-d. the prophets of gentile Christians hear from G-d. why would no other Muslims hear from your Allah? If Mohammed was the only prophet for Muslims, can it be true when all other monotheism religions with the same one G-d have more than hundreds of true prophets over the history?
    what happened if Mohammed was deceived by a fallen Angel who disguised himself as the angel of light? Islamic faith has zero evidence or assurance of what they believe: the good work can lead them to heaven. it is a blind faith even it is a pure faith. when a faith cannot lead anyone to what it promises, it is even a false faith like many others including Buddhism, Hinduism, and Atheism.

  4. what you wear or what you eat does not bear any effect to your resurrection of your soul as our bodies decay under the ground: a simple scientific fact. what matters is our souls whether it is pure and righteous. No men can see G-d unless he is Holy. how can a sinful believer face the righteous G-d on any day if what G-d said is true and unchangeable? Islam does not teach how a sinner can become a righteous and pure and holy man? forget not, it is the soul of man needs to be purified and to be righteous and Holy. No any earthly work can even touch this part of cleansing and sanctification work. Only in the Holy Bible, Christ Yehoshua teaches us that only by Him, Through Him, we can be so. did you miss this vital teaching?

  5. John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives." said Yehoshua (the name of the Son of G-d in Hebrew). This peace is between the Christians and G-d the Father, and among the Christians. when Muslim brothers said peace be upon you, they did not mean it is true to give their peace to me. when I sat with them, just after a few minutes, some of them said, "I will kill you if we are in a Muslim country." what I said? I disagreed with what you claimed totally. If Islam is a true faith, why those Muslims wanted to kill me, a Christian street preacher who disagrees Islam and asked legitimate questions? Islam is not a peaceful religion. Christ Yehoshua taught us, "by its fruit, you know whether the tree is good or evil."

  6. Islam teaches not to convert non-Muslims by force. and said in one place, to kill all the non-believers among the Muslims. can this be true? can you answer why Islam teaches to kill all non-believers just because they do not believe in Islam? if you insist on this teaching, you will make yourselves murders under UN universal human rights and freedom. Christianity never teaches to kill non-believers, but to separate themselves out from this evil and sinful world. see the difference and try to understand Christians' G-d is distinct different from Allah of Muslims as they are distinct in nature of their teachings and laws.

  7. peace and love from our Christ be with all of you, our Muslim brothers. I truly believe that our G-d loves us all, Christians and Muslims. However, only those who found the Truth, the Way, and the Life will live once again. we know the Truth as He came to us. we know the Way as Christ Yehoshua shew us the only Way to heaven. We know the eternal Life as He gives such life to those who believe in Him, accepted Him, follow Him, obey Him. Yes, Christians have bold assurance from G-d the Father that will guarantee them to enter the new heaven and the new earth.
    Read the Holy Bible with neutral mind set. if you cannot do it in your place, come to a place that you can do so. May our G-d bless all you who fear Him. Amen.
