Why Christians Choose the Bible, Not the Quran

Kitab-13Have you ever tried to compare the Quran and the Bible? You will discover there is a big difference between the two books. The Bible is full of prophecies, whereas the Quran is not.  What God tells us through His Prophets about things to come is called "prophecy."

Testing the Quran and the Bible through Prophecy

The only way you can know a book is from God is if the prophecies in the book come true. True prophecies are very specific. Some Muslims claim “And when books spread abroad” (Qs 81:11) is a prophecy. Books were spread abroad at the time of Muhammad. But this is not a prophecy. It is too general. Therefore, we can’t test the Qur’an to see if it is really from God based on a “prophecy” like that.

On the other hand, God’s prophet Micah prophesied 500 years before the coming of Isa Al-Masih that He would be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:1-2). This is a true prophecy. It gives a specific location of where, in the future, something would take place.

The Bible gives us many more prophecies as well. It records God’s words given through many of His prophets on things to come. These prophecies can be tested. They have been tested, and found to be true. This is why Christians believe the only Book from God is the Bible.

The Quran Cannot Be Testedbigstock-Quran-Page-36965635

If the Quran had fulfilled prophecies in it, like God’s Book, there would be a reason to believe it. But it does not. We can’t test the Quran. No, you just have to believe that Muhammad received it from the angel Gabriel. You have to believe the words of one man are more accurate than the words of many prophets.

You keep using the word "test." I do not think it means what you think it means. You're using the Bible to prove that the Bible is right.

I quote: "We cannot test the Quran." No, you just have to believe that Muhammad received the words from the angel Gabriel.

Well, we cannot test the Bible. You just have to believe that the authors of the Injil based their stories on the life of a real man. The earliest extant fragment of the New Testament is the Rylands Library Papyrus P52, a piece of the Gospel of John dated to the first half of the 2nd century. That's not contemporary.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your comment! Your views are respected and appreciated by us. Perhaps the article was unclear or confusing to you.

The purpose of the article was not to establish the dates of manuscripts, but to show the fulfillment of prophecy in the Bible. The existence of Jesus Christ is not in question.

The historical evidence for Christ is overwhelming. Other than a very rare historian who has placed his emotions above his intellect, Christ as a real historical figure is accepted the world around - even by atheist scholars.

You claim that the Qur'an has no prophesies (excluding the day of judgement) and that is incorrect. You claim that the only way to tell that a book is from God is by prophesies that have come true. This is also incorrect.

The Qur'an 2:23,24 says: "And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah, if you should be truthful. But if you do not, and you will never be able to, then fear the Fire, whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers."

The proof that the Qur'an is from God is given in the challenge to make a surah (chapter) comparable to those in the Qur'an. In 1,400 years no one has done so. The beginning of surah 30 and surah 111 are also prophesies that have come true.

Sabr Nooh,

Here is a prophecy according to some Muslim scholars from Qs 30:42, "Corruption has spread on land and sea because of what men's hand have wrought."

This is not a prophecy. This is a general statement. It is like me saying, "The world is full of evil."

Many books contain many "so-called" prophecies, and then because of the laws of probability, a couple of them come true.

What makes the Bible different is that every single prophecy about Isa Al-Masih in the Old Testament is very specific and is fulfilled in the New Testament. Study carefully the list of prophecies about Isa Al-Masih in the article above. You will see that the Quran cannot match any of those prophesies.

You claim that the Quran cannot be proven. But the Quran tells us how the universe was created and no one at the time could prove it. Then science discovered it in 1960. What do you say to that?

The Quran tells us how humans were created and no one had knowledge about that at the time. In the 20th century science discovered it. And many other things have also been proven.

The Quran is unchanged by human hands. It's pure.

Dear Shaquille,

Thank you for your comment. You are right that certain parts of the Quran can be proven through science. Do you know that Genesis 1:1, written thousands of years before the Christian era, also said that God created the world? Did you know that the Gospel, written 550 years before Muhammad, said that God created the world? Do you realize that Muhammad got most of his theological ideas from the Jewish Taurat and the Christian Injil?

Shaquille, the same can be said about the creation of mankind. It is all recorded in clear detail in the Taurat.

As Christians, we believe that all truth is from God, and we can affirm the parts of the Quran that are true.

But again, as the above article explains, the Quran can't be proven in the same way as the Bible through prophecies. Every single prophesy about Isa Al-Masih that is given in the Old Testament is then fulfilled by Isa in the New Testament.

Muslim Guy,

There are several translations of the Bible, but they are not for different churches. They are for all Christians and for Muslims too.

The Bible has been translated multiple times and the language updated because the English language, as all languages, changes. As the language changes, new Bible translations are needed so that every generation can understand what God has said through His Holy Word.

Every translation is translated from the same Greek and Hebrew manuscripts by a group of scholars who know the original Biblical languages very well. They are very careful as they translate to make sure they make no mistakes. The translation is edited many times before it is published.

I would suggest you write us and state one or two contradictions in God's Holy Word. We would like to talk with you about them.

The Bible is significant because it is God's Word given to man! It tells about how much God loves man and His plan for us.

The Bible explains how humans are separated from God because of sinfulness. It tells how God sent Isa Al-Masih (Jesus Christ) to earth to be the sacrifice for our sin and to provide eternal salvation for us.

If the Bible is God's Word then why is it in different forms - the Old and New Testaments? What does it mean?

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ (pbuh) is the Son of God, He is begotten of the Father. In the King James edition this word does not exist. Who wrote it, Muslims or Christians?

Dear Zameer,

Thank you for your question. The Old and New Testaments are not different forms of the Bible. The Old Testament is the first part of the Bible and was complete by the time Jesus lived on earth.

Whenever Jesus talks about "the Law and the Prophets" He is referring to the Old Testament. The New Testament is the second part of the Bible and was written after Jesus returned to Heaven. God's Holy Spirit inspired men to correctly record the Words of Isa Al-Masih. God also gave further revelation to the Apostles.

Zameer, you will see that the Word "begotten" is in the New Testament. Please note, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (Injil , John 1:14, NKJV).

Sometimes the word "begotten" is translated as "One and Only."

We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

But it was written in the Bible that a last prophet would come and the name of that prophet would be Muhammad. So that prophet (pbuh) came and took the book of the Quran from God through Gabriel.

Muhammad is the last prophet and a prophet cannot tell lies. And the Quran testifies about the Bible that the Bible is a true book that also came from God.

The Bible has been completely edited so you cannot test the Bible with the Quran. Only the Quran is in the original state from the beginning until now. It will not be changed and cannot be, because Allah promised to keep it in it's original state until the end.

Where does it say in the Bible that the last prophet to come would be Muhammad? I don't know of any verse that actually names Muhammad as the last prophet.

There are many Scriptures in the Taurat and the Prophets that state another would come who would fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament, but the names given are all names that Jesus was later called, not Muhammad.

Thank you for your question. The thing is, Jesus was sent for all people, not just for Israel. He told his disciples, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you" (Injil, Matthew 28:19-20).

He also told them this in Acts 1:8, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:47, and John 20:21. Jesus told his disciples to share His message with the whole world, not just Israel!
This article gives a more full explanation about why and how Jesus came for everyone: http://isaandislam.com/Isa-Al-Masih/did-isa-al-masih-practice-racial-discrimination.html.

Jesus wants to have a relationship with every person, not just Jews. If you would like to know how to do this, go to the "Way of Salvation" section on our site.

You asked a good question. The reason why Jehovah's Witnesses don't accept the Trinity is because they are not real Christians. Jehovah's Witnesses are a cult, or a sect, similar to Ahmadi Muslims.

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am shocked to see that you are ignorant of the teachings of the Quran. What silly logic are you giving about a book being true only if it predicts the future. Which Bible are you talking about my friend?

With so many versions, how can the book be true? I as a Muslim believe in the Bible as a book of God. But over time, people have distorted facts about the Bible and have created different versions.

On the other hand, there is only One Quran, and Allah will protect His word forever. There are at least ten million Muslims who know the Quran by heart. May I recommend that you at least read the Quran once.

Arjumand,

There is only one Bible. You are right that the Bible has many translations, but they are all from the same Greek and Hebrew manuscripts. Much research and work has been done to preserve those manuscripts, and when the manuscripts we have now are compared to the fragments that date back to the 2nd century BC (Taurat) and the 1st century AD (Injil), they are the same.

The differences between different Bible translations are very minor, such as the differences in translations of the Quran. The differences are because different scholars disagree about what word is best to convey the message in the original Greek and Hebrew languages.

You are right that the Quran tells about many prophets. It also states that to fully learn about those prophets, one must read the Taurat and the Injil (Qs. 2:136).

The Bible has not been changed. There are many verses that attest to this. Some of them are:

"The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand forever" (Isaiah 40:8).

"Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens" (Zabur [Psalm] 119:89).

The Bible (Word of God) is eternal! It "stands firm," ie, it cannot be changed.

Why don't you consider the Holy Quran with care. It is the only book Allah (God) promised to prevent from human's manipulation, is this not a prophecy? This makes it different from the Bible.

As you know, the Bible contains a lot of contradictions and errors. The Quran has confirmed prophecies that exist among us but you can't figure them out because you don't really want to know the truth. I would like to engage you in discussion via online.

"The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand forever" (Isaiah 40:8).

"Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens" (Zabur [Psalm] 119:89).

The Bible (Word of God) is eternal! It "stands firm," ie, it cannot be changed.

"I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished" (Injil, Matthew 5:18).

The Bible cannot be changed until every prophecy has been fulfilled, which will be after the end of time as we know it, for the Bible even prophesies about what life will be like in Paradise after Jesus returns to earth.

The Quran is the holy book of Islam (words of God), but we also read Hadiths (words of the prophet Muhammad saw). So, we have more books to read and learn than those of the Old and New Testaments.

Hadiths contain not only guidance but also prophecies spoken through the prophet Muhammad saw. Some prophecies of Al-Quran (mainly scientific, i.e. about plate tectonic theory) and some in Hadiths have been fulfilled.
Quote
# Jasmin 2012-12-12 21:25

Imtihanah,

The Hadiths cannot be the revelation of God nor should Muslims believe them. For example: The Prophet said, "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease" (Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537). When the Hadiths contain these kinds of ideas, it is clear that the Hadith are not reliable.

Explaining how the earth works, i.e. plate tectonic theory, is not a prophecy. A prophecy is foretelling of what will happen in the future. For example the prophet Isaiah 500 years before Christ foretold that Jesus Christ would suffer for the sins of humanity. ”But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all” (The Prophet Isaiah 53:5-6).

Remember that the Old Testament pre-dates the Quran by thousands of years and the New Testament pre-dates the Quran by 500 years or more. Also it is important to note that most of the contents of the Quran have been taken from the Old and New Testaments.

You said that the Bible is full of prophecies, but they should also be tested. One prophecy in the Bible is that as Jonah was in the belly of the fish for 3 days & 3 nights so shall the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for 3 days & 3 nights. How many days was Jesus in the heart of earth?

The prophecy has another link also that Jonah was alive and to fulfill the prophecy Jesus must be alive but according to Christians Jesus was dead. If this is true, then the prophecy is not fulfilled. Please explain.

Wasim, you are absolutely correct. All prophecies need to be tested!

First of all the “heart of the earth” is figurative language for the grave. In Jewish thinking in the first century a part of a day was equivalent to a full day. So they would understand that part of Friday, all day Saturday and part of Sunday as three days. Other verses state that Jesus would rise on the third day (Injil, Matthew 16:21 and Luke 9:22). So he fulfilled the prophecy for being in the grave three days.

As to the second question, Jesus is alive today. He rose from the dead on the third day and He lives with His followers today. Thus He fulfilled that prophecy. In fact He promised those who love and follow Him, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Injil, Matthew 28:19).

Thanks brothers! ,I have carefully gone through all arguments on this matter and I have one concern. Our brothers in the Muslim world have no reason not to turn to Jesus Christ as the only Saviour of the world. It seems they just intentionally hate the truth.

Mohammad was smart in his way but confused his followers. How can a prophet who received God's word (Quran) and passed it to his followers become the first to break it? How many wives did Mohammad marry and how many did he tell his followers to marry, which is which?

Jesus and the Bible remain pure and the only consistent Word of God. Can a messenger of God (Muhammad) of over 40 years defile a girl of 09 years?

People, let’s own up! This is confusing.

I don’t believe Muslims hate the truth. They have been taught for years that the Gospel is untrustworthy. They have been trained from childhood that Muhammad is a great prophet who received a revelation from God. It is hard for them to think that they might be wrong. In fact they have been warned not even to investigate the claims of Christianity or to question their own faith. This is why they seem to hate the truth.

Most people feel bewildered that Muhammad had more than four wives, I think 13 in all. Of course the marriage to the nine year girl is abhorrent too, to most people. Muslims really need to face these problems and try not to justify Muhammad’s actions.

We would appreciate prayer. We want to share clearly with all people God’s love as it is shown in Christ Jesus. Our desire is that both Muslims and Christian would “…know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; [and] . . . be filled with all the fullness of God” (Injil, Ephesians 3:19).

You know very well that the Bible and Isa say that Islam is the true religion. I choose Islam. The Bible says that Ahmad is the name of my prophet Muhammad.

Please don't print false things about Islam. Holy Quran is wholly God's word. It will never change until the Day of Judgment. I request that don’t tell lies. God sees and hears. Islam and the Quran are true. Please don't abuse Islam.

Why do you change the Bible’s facts and meaning?

Vaseem, we are committed to telling the truth. If you read the Bible carefully you will see that there is not one word in it about Islam. The name Ahmad is not found in the Bible. Some Muslims want to believe that Muhammad is spoken of it the Bible. His name or any reference to him is totally absent.

Our staff says nothing false about Islam. We do see many things that are false in Islam. We encourage Muslims to critically study their religion. If they do they will discover many things they claim to be true are not true.

No one has changed the text of the Bible. Muslims claim Christians have changed the text but this is a charge that can not be proven by Muslims. It is just a Muslim strategy to try to discredit the Bible. The Bible is God’s Holy Word. Men cannot change it!

The word "Al-Masih" is from what chapter?
Quote
# Jason Gilead 2013-02-26 19:39
`
The word "Al-Masih" is the Arabic translation of the Aramaic "Messias." The Greek translation of "Messias" is "Christ."

You see the name Christ all throughout the New Testament. When Muslims refer to son of Mary they say Isa Al-Masih. Christians refer to Him as Jesus Christ. So Al-Masih and Christ and just two names for the Son of Mary.

Isa Al-Masih said, "For the Son of Man [Jesus Christ] came to seek and to save what was lost" (Luke 19:10). Christ came to save us from sin! Please always keep this in the forefront of your thinking, when you think about Isa Al-Masih.

I would challenge Muslims to read the whole Old Testament to see if there is a reference to Muhammad. I can assure you that there is not one reference.

Islamic scholars try very hard to find a reference to Muhammad in the Old Testament. There is no reference.

Please note the following verse revealed to the Prophet Isaiah 500 years before the coming of Isa Al-Masih: "But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all" (Nabi Isaiah 53:5-6).

Who do you think Isaiah 53:5-6 refers to?

In my opinion, the Quran is God's words because it has not been altered from how it was revealed originally, while the Bible has been modified many times.

The Quran confirms and answers: why am I alive, who created the world, and where is my future after death.

Also, the Quran confirms Jesus' prophecy and his resurrection, but the Bible only emphasizes love and sin, which is a small part of life.

Abi,

The Bible has been modified many times in order to adjust with the development of civilization. Originally the Bible was written in the very old Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek languages. People nowadays are hardly to understand those languages therefore they are translated with the current-use languages. Just like the Bible, the Qurans are also translated. There are at least seven versions of the Qurans’ translation, such as Sahih International, Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, Shakir, M. Sarwar, Mohsin Khan, and Arberry). For further information, please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/the-bible/why-are-there-so-many-translations-of-the-bible.html.

Eventhough the Bible emphasizes about Isa and sin, it does tell about the creation, God’s good plans for His people, hell and heaven, even about the Kingdom of God, a place where God wants His people to be. From the Bible, we know that How God loves us very much and He wants to be known by His people. However,Sin made human minds distorted. Thus, God sent Isa as the way, the truth and the life so that everyone who receives Isa can go to God (Injil, John 14:6). Furthermore about Isa, please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/isa-al-masih/what-does-the-quran-say-about-isa-al-masih.html.

But Muslims also believe that the Quran is the continuation of the one true religion which started with Adam and ended with Muhammad.

All your observations have been very clearly answered and scientific facts proven by Dr. Zakir Naik's video where he has a debate with Dr. William Campbell. If it still doesn’t answer your concerns then May Allah guide you, for no one else can.

Thank you for you gentle response to our content.

I want you to know that we have read and studied Islam for 50 years. In all of my studies I have not found Islam or the Al-Quran defensible. There are so many contradictions in Islam and the Quran. Answers that Muslims have given are not adequate. I have not closed my eyes to the truth and have tried to be open to Islam and the Quran in every respect.

I have listened to some of the video referred to above. It is very clear from the video that Dr. Campbell’s explanation about embryology shows how modern science contradicts the Quran.

My friend, I would encourage you to read the Gospel very carefully. You will find, what so many Muslims have found, that Christ Jesus is the Savior of world. This salvation can be received by faith through grace alone. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast” (Injil, Ephesians 2:8-9).

Thanks but true enough. This sparks a long file of religious dialogue.

Hope you focus more on the works of Isa and how He saves us and not just the comparison of the Quran and the Bible next time. Remember how Isa was so irked by the Pharisees (religious leaders) who knew every bit of the Old Testament but never knew the Person in front of them.

It is not how much we know about the Bible but it is really about our relationship with Isa that should speak louder in winning people to Him. Please show more about how Allah loves us that He sent His one and only Son, Isa Al-Masih to save us.

Thank you Paul. Your advice is right on target. We feel that we must try to answer honest and polite questions about the Bible. Nevertheless it is far more important to share about the person of Christ and what He did on the cross for us. So thank you!

Paul, the great apostle wrote, “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners - - - of whom I am the worst” (Injil, I Timothy 1:15). This is why Christ came! To save us! And we all, if we really look deep into our hearts will say, “I am the worst of sinners.” We must receive Him as Savior for he came to save “the worst of sinners”!

Jesus did not say that He had the truth (although He does). Instead He said, "I am the Truth." He did not say that He had life (although He did). Instead He said "I am the life." He did not say I know the way or point to the way (although He could). Instead He said "I am the way." And in the same verse He said that no one goes to the Father, e.g. enters heaven, except through Him, that is through accepting Him as Savior.

Dear Admin,

I really appreciate this open discussion. I think this can help us, both Christians and Muslims, to present our point of view.

The subject is, the Quran or Bible, which one is God's (Allah's) Word.   This is a very old and common argument.

As you said and boasted, that Bible is the Word of God.

As a Muslim, the Quran guides us Muslims to ask those people who are claiming, relating or attributing some thing to God which is not be fitting to  God (Allah). The Quran tells us to ask them if you are right or true, then produce your proof.

And as a Christian you already clearly said that Bible is the Word of God. And Quran is not. So I think it is a waste of time if I try to explain to you something from the Quran.

So if the Quran is not the Word of God and Bible is, then let us examine Bible. Put this book on test. If it passes the test then we Muslim's have no objections to accept that this book is the Word of God. If you agree then I will continue.

Dear Syed:

Yes, we believe fully that the Bible is God's Word and that the Quran is not God's Word. And we are willing to answer any questions about the Bible.

It is important to note that most of the Quran comes from the Old and New Testaments. It is made up of stories that your prophet heard from the Jews and the Christians in Arabia.

You can read why we don't accept the Quran as God's Word by reading carefully three articles on contradictions in the Quran - http://www.isaandislam.com/Way-of-Salvation/

Finally, as to the Bible, it is much older than the Quran and it has been preserved by God. God is all powerful and He would not permit His holy Word to be corrupted. To charge that God's holy Word has been corrupted is to doubt the power of God.

Kind regards,

It is true that the Bible gives prophesies. But the real thing behind it all is that the Bible calls Jesus to be the Son of God. Can you believe that? Can you believe that God came here to earth and He was not even able to survive?

The Quran does give prophesies. It tells us that the skin is where all the feeling are. It tells us about the convection of the currents during a rain, etc. But you have to be eager enough to search for them.

Allah is the only creator. He created the heaven and the earth and Jesus. He Is the Master and Creator of them all.

Arqam, thank you for your good comments.

Jesus is the Son of God, but not in the way mankind thinks of a son. "Son of God" is a figure of speech. Jesus is also called "Kalimah Allah" but He is not a sentence. And because God is all-powerful He can easily come to earth as a man if He pleases. Who can stop Him?

The Triune God willed that Jesus, the eternal Kalimah Allah, would be crucified to save us from eternal punishment. That is how much He loves us. Because He is all powerful, He rose from the dead. This is a great victory.

The prophecies you speak of are not prophecies at all. To prophesy is to foretell events that will happen in the future. For example the prophet Isaiah foretold (prophesied) that the Kalimah Allah would be crucified 500 years before it happened. Please see Isaiah 53. This is a perfect example of a true prophecy.

Yes, Allah is the creator and Master of the universe. The Kalimah Allah and the eternal Spirit (Rohullah), members of the Triune Godhead, also participated in the creation. Please read Genesis 1:1-2.

From what I understand, in the beginning God allowed men to eat only fruits and vegetables, but later on allowed some meat.

Later on again allowed basically all meat except the blood. Then in the New Testament everything could now be eaten because everything was cleansed already by the blood of Christ.

With these changing Biblical guidelines about food over time, can we say that the Word of God is really absolute over time?
Quote
# Jason Gilead 2013-05-15 18:51

The Bible is absolute over time as to the person of God, the condition of mankind, moral truth etc.

It is not absolute over time as to modes of dress, modes of transport, ways to eat, how to build houses, forms of worship, e.g. cultural matters. These things vary through over time and are not of great importance. Under the OT law there were some prohibitions on what was eaten. When Isa Al-Masih came, He emphasized that what comes out of a person’s heart is more important than what goes into his stomach (See Mark 7:14-23).

Thus the followers of Jesus can easily adjust to other cultures. The Bible is a book for the heart, not the outward form of religion. Islam (and some other sects as well) place unwarranted importance on the external, whereas God places almost no emphasis on the external.

“You [God]do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings” (Psalm 51:16). Thus wrote the Psalmist even though God commanded the burnt offerings. Why?

In another place the prophet writes, “I [God] hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me” (Amos 5:21).

What God desires first and foremost is a broken and contrite heart, humility, goodness, kindness, love etc. But religious people think God cares about what we eat, what we wear, the bodily position in prayer.

Good day,

You mentioned in one of your replies that Mohammad picked up most of the scientific information from the books before the Quran.

There is a surah in the Quran that is specifically about about iron, the metal. The words that used are "iron is sent down," which points to the fact that iron is not produced in the earth's core since it is not hot enough.

Therefore all the iron we have was once produced in stars in our galaxy. For a person who did not know how to read and write to gather information like this is remarkable.

I have not read the Bible but can you give me a reference from where this kind of information could have been gathered?
Quote
# Jason Gilead 2013-05-15 19:12

You are referring to Qs 54:25. Please note that not all translators translate this verse in the same way. Three well known and trusted translators of the Quran translate it as: “God brought forth iron” (Mohsin Khan), “revealed iron” (Pickthall), “made iron” (Shakir). Keep this in mind.

But be careful about your confidence in the Quran? There are many things that are confusing. For example a Muslim must believe that God made the stars as missiles to throw at devils. “And We have (from of old) adorned the lowest heave (sky) with lamps, and have made such (Lamps as) missiles to drive away Satan . . .” Qs 67:5). We all know that this idea is foolish. Of course you can say that Muhammad was speaking poetically, and I will accept that. He was also speaking poetically when he mentioned the matter of iron.

Please don’t be taken in by the idea that the Quran contains all kinds of scientific knowledge. I know this is hammered into our brains by Muslim apologists but it is just not so.

To my knowledge the Quran contains no prophecies. A prophecy is a prediction about an unknown event that will happen in the future. The Bible is full of prophecies about what will happen in the future.

You are absolutely correct. Many people are going to be very, very sad when some of the Biblical prophecies are fulfilled.

Christians say that: "The Father (F) is God, the Son(S) is God, and the Holy Ghost(H) is God, but the Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Holy Ghost, and the Holy Ghost is not the Father".

In simple arithmetic and terms therefore, if F = G, S = G, and H = G, then it follows that F = S = H, while the second part of the statement suggests that F ¹ S ¹ H (meaning, "not equal"). Isn’t that a contradiction to the Christian dogma of Trinity in itself ?

I agree with Michael Lee Cline. Well then there are not just prophecies in Qur'an. There are also scientific facts!

Of course the Qur'an has nothing as complicated as modern science like what Mr. Campbell said about embryo. But the embryo thing and how humans were made in the Qur'an is going in the same direction. Look for how humans were made in the Qur'an. There is no contradiction there. And it makes humans curious to know the truth. For example, like "don't you see how camels were made?"

in the Qur'an it is not explained that camels were made from sperm and ovum in the camel's body. I take it as Allah wants people to figure it out by their own eyes, doing experiments and so on.

As a student I decided that the Qur'an is my best guide because it fulfills all the parts of living. There you see how you act to your God, to people, to the environment and so on. It is your fundamental guide for thinking.

First of all, to my knowledge, there are no prophecies (predictions of future events) in the Qur'an.

Secondly, it is impractical to accept any holy book because one thinks it contains scientific evidence. One man wrote a book, "Scientific Facts in the Bible." I think it is nonsense to write a book like this. The presence or absence of scientific facts do not verify that a book is revealed by God.

I am amazed at how people try to prove that the Qur'an or the Bible contain scientific facts.

The Holy Bible is God's only message for mankind because it adequately deals with the problem of sin and salvation. No other book provides a solution for how we humans can be sure of heaven. Jesus said to His followers: "I am the way the truth of the Life. No man comes to the Father but through Me" (Injil, John 14:6).

The unchanging words and sentences don't justify the truthfulness, but the content and the powerful words - because of the Holy Spirit, one will say that the Bible is the Word of God.

The Quran was also written by a human being through retelling stories of Muhammad's friends after He died.

Therefore, both books are written by human beings. However, as mentioned above, the Bible can be tested, but Quran cannot and you have to believe the accuracy of one man rather than the accuracies of many prophets.

The Old Testament and the New Testament are the words of God. They were written by human beings, but were inspired by the Holy Spirit. "All Scripture is God-breathed... " (2 Timothy 3:16).

God told us through the Bible that none are righteous and all have sinned, including His Prophets (Romans 3:10). In the Bible, one can see indecent stories of His Prophets, but this doesn't mean that sin is allowed. These stories are to show us that God hates sin, so He already set a way for us to overcome our sin through the sacrifice of Isa Al-Masih.

Muslims respect Isa (A.S.) as a prophet and servant of Allah Almighty. Isa (A.S.) was blessed with miracles of healing of the sick and raising the dead. This was from Allah Almighty, as Isa (A.S.) used to say 'Qum be izn Allah' (rise by the will of Allah). He never claimed to be the son of Allah. This concept was not taught until some 200 years later by the true followers of this great prophet by emperor Constantine.

Constantine created an amalgam of true Christianity (for us Muslims, it was Islam that Isa (A.S.) preached) and the pagan mythology. Ever since that time the Christians have had this misconception. The text of the Injil was changed to teach this idea. It is very hard to differentiate between the two, when we talk about the Christian trinity and the pagan Roman or Greek mythologies, where gods and goddesses had a 'human' touch, where they used to have sexual intimacies and bore off-spring.

Dear Nadeem,

Could you please show me the proof that the Injil was changed? Christianity and the Bible at that time had already been spread through many places in the world, therefore if even a small part were changed, biblical scholars certainly would have noticed. Many manuscripts of the Bible were distributed everywhere, so it would have been impossible to change all of the manuscripts that existed.

It’s also impossible to change the Injil, because God is Almighty. He can preserve and protect His words perfectly. Injil, Matthew 5:18 says, “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” Injil, Matthew 24:35 also says, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." The Quran even says, “And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.” (Sura Al-An’nam 6:115). For further information, please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/the-bible/is-it-true-that-the-present-day-torah-and-gospel-old-and-new-testaments-are-not-pure.html

Regarding Isa Al-Masih, He is the Son of God because He perfectly reveals God to humanity. He is the Word of God and perfectly explains the will and character of God to humanity. As the Son and the Word of God, Isa shows the love, holiness, and salvation of God to humanity.

As a Muslim, I believe Jesus Christ is our prophet. We also follow him. In the Injil, John 16:7-8 says, "Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment:"

I would like to ask some questions about the above verses. Who is "He"? Who is the "Helper"? Who came after Isa (peace be upon him)?

Dear Mohammed,

We’re glad to help you with your question above. The Helper refers to the Holy Spirit of God. He is also called the Comforter, the Advocate, and the Counselor. He is the third person in the Trinity. “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me.” (Injil, John 15:26). He is a person, just like God the Father and God the Word. He can speak (Acts 13:2), He can be grieved (Ephesians 4:30), and He also has a will (1 Corinthians 12:11).

He is also called “the spirit of truth" (John 14:17). “The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him " (Injil, John 14:17). Because He is Spirit, Isa Al-Masih told His disciples that, “He lives with you and will be in you " (John 14:17).

Ashfaq,

What do you mean that “the Quran and Islam will eradicate all ideologies in the world”? Also, what is the point of doing that?

Through Isa, we can know that God is Love. He said to "love your enemies and pray for for those who persecute you" (Injil, Matthew 5:44). The highest values in the Christian faith are love, sacrifice, humility, and compassion for others, which includes patience.

However, He promised that He would bring whoever receives Isa Al-Masih as their Sacrifice to Himself. “Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'” (Injil, John 14:6).

We will not stay forever in this world. The world will disappear. Therefore, “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near” (Isaiah 55:6). If you seek the truth, you’ll find that Isa is the way. For further information please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/Isa-Al-Masih/jesus-a-sign-to-men.html

Dear Aila,

I'm not comforted with your answer. And I'm not seeking your help. I'm just showing you some of the verses in the Injil that are still there without any changes. I am cross-checking with the Quran. The Injil, John 16:7-8 says,
"But what I am saying is true: my going is for your good: for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And he, when he comes, will make the world conscious of sin, and of righteousness, and of being judged."

You said in your previous comment this is the "Holy Spirit." But in John, Isa (Pbuh) mentioned He is the Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh). Do you have any proof Isa is referring to the "Holy Spirit" here? And where do you see the Holy Spirit after Isa (pbuh)?

And we have proof that the comforter, ruler and judge mentioned in John 16:7-8 who would come after Isa (pbuh) is Muhammad (Pbuh) He came to the world and said the same thing (Qs 61:6) "the son of Mary, said, 'O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.' But when he (Isa) came to them (Israel)with clear evidences, they said, "This is obvious magic."

Cross checking with verses of the Injil (John 16:7-8) and the Quran (Qs 61:6), what Allah says is true. The prophet Muhammad was the last messenger.

Mohammed,

I am sorry that I was not able to comfort you.

The Book of John, does not have any statements saying that the Prophet Muhammad is the Helper. In the Injil, John 14:17, it says “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth,whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

From this verse, we know that it’s the unseen Spirit of truth; He’s from Above, not from the world. The world does not receive Him either, however Isa’s disciples know him. The Spirit of truth will dwell with and stay in them. From these things, how could it be possibly be Muhammad?

Fifty days after Isa went up to heaven, the Holy Spirit came down from Heaven and the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit. “When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:1-4). After that, the Holy Spirit led Isa’s disciples in continuing His work on earth even more than that was done when Isa was on earth because of the Holy Spirit.

They preached the Gospel (Good News about Isa), healed the sick, and cast out demons throughout the world.

Aila,

It was indeed my mistake to state that the text of "Injil" was altered. Actually at some given point of time, when people were made to believe that Isa (A.S.) was God's relative, the actual Injil was shelved at a very discreet location (maybe some hidden vault in Vatican City) and something, closely resembling the Injil was introduced. This new text had the word "son" replacing the word "servant" wherever it was used in the context of Isa (A.S.). Then the different versions were based off this text. We have reached the King James Version at this present time, and do not know where the journey will end.

Aila, here I will totally agree with your quotation from the Injil and the Quran that make the statement about the God Almighty being the real Protector of His Words. I believe a day will come (In Sha Allah) when we Muslims will be able to recite the actual Injil, just as we recite the actual Quran today.

Thanks for your clarification.

Could I ask you a question? Why would you wait for a day to come to be able to recite the Injil? The Injil, which was confirmed by Muhammad, is the same Injil which is available now.

Muslims often make claims that the Bible is unreliable. They say that men have changed the Bible over the course of time. But the text of the Bible can be traced back almost two thousand years.

Sir/ma'am,

I would like to ask one question only. Why don't Christians pray or worship the way Jesus Christ and other prophets prayed or worshiped? According to the bible, Jesus Christ fell down with his face to the ground and pray, Moses fell down with his face to the ground and pray, and Abraham fell down with his face to the ground and pray.
Quote
# Aila 2013-09-05 05:24

Oseni,

Thank you for your question.

You are right that Isa did fall on his face and pray. But He didn't always pray this way. And Isa never taught us to pray by falling down on our faces. when the disciples asked Isa how to pray, this was His response:

“This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one'”
(Matthew 6:9-13

In teaching this prayer, Isa told us to come to the Father, worship and praise Him, and ask for our needs. Isa didn’t teach us to memorize this prayer and repeat it every day. In fact, Jesus said, “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words” (Matthew 6:7). Our prayer should be alive and fresh everyday with our praise, worship, and request from our sincere heart.

Again you are with the Holy Spirit and its super natural Christians only believing and there is no proof.

Many Christians say they have read the Bible many times and have never found any mentioning about our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh). But we can show you numerous passages predicting the advent of Mohammad (pbuh), as well as passages mentioning his name!

If we take a look at the Old Testament, Song of Solomon 5:16, it is written: “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”

In the original Hebrew, it is written:

“Cheeko mame tah kim, vechulo Mohamadim. Zeh doudi, Me zehre he, beyna Jeruzalem”

There is evidence of the Holy Spirit of God living in every believer. First, the evidence can be seen through the gifts of the Spirit such as speaking in tongues in different languages, interpreting those languages, prophesies, and healing (I Corinthians 12:4-11). All of these are given supernaturally by the Holy Spirit. Another evidence is the fruit of the Spirit, which are the qualities Christ-likeness which are found in every person who has trusted in Isa Al-Masih (Injil, Galatians 5:22-23).

Regarding the verse that you quoted (Song of Songs 5:16), from some research, I found that the pronunciation is almost the same. It’s machamadim or machmadyim, not mohamadim. It also does not refer to a name.

Isa Al-Masih is of God. He was ". . . made lower than the angels . . ." (Hebrews 2:9). He also “emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men...” (Philippians 2:5-8). Isa was a man but also God (in the meaning of divine nature). He was in a lower position than the Father God, because He lowered Himself to become a human (Colossians 2:9). However, both are equally powerful.

For sure the Bible is not a book from Allah. Let me ask a question: if it is God's book then to whom was it revealed to and where? Second, Allah's book should be free from man's interpretation.

Omari,

Even though the Bible was written by men, it was inspired by God himself through the Holy Spirit. The Quran says, “…we bestowed on him [Isa] the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah" (Qs 5:46). And the Quran says that the Word of God cannot be changed, “Perfected is the Word of thy Lord in truth and justice. There is naught that can change His words" (Qs 6:34). If the Quran acknowledges the Bible, then why don’t you?

The Catholic and the Protestant Bibles are a little bit different because at the time of the Reformation, the Protestants decided not to include the books which weren’t in the Hebrew Bible. However, despite the differences, both bring God’s message about Isa Al-Masih, in whom we have faith. Isa is the way, the truth, and the life. None can come to Allah except through him (Injil, John 14:6).

Christian history indicates that there were 3 different texts available at the time the first Bible and the first Torah were compiled. These text were A) Scacerdotal text, B) Iloyist text and C)Yavist text.

According to history, each text was compiled at different stages ranging from 200 years to 600 years after Prophet Moses (pbuh), ie: 10BC, 8BC, 6BC

From these 3 texts, the Bible (Old Testament) was compiled. Theological research has now proven that the first verses of Genesis contain a mixture of the 3 texts.

If the Bible is the word of God, can you please tell me who wrote the Old Testament (who wrote the Iloyist, Yavist and Scacerdotal texts). EXACT NAMES & SURNAMES of the authors and scribes would be a great help since these are the people who were inspired (by God) to write these texts.

I don't agree that the Bible encourages blind followership and discourages questions. Through Isa Al-Masih, we have freedom to ask in walking in God's ways. When we follow Isa, we also repent from our old ways and choose to follow his ways. We need to be aware of what we are doing otherwise we are not following anyone! The Christians also don't believe in three Gods, but one God. The God Father, God Son, and God Spirit is one eventhough that each part functions differently. Like head, hand and feet, they function differently, but one and cannot be separated. Also, we do need sacrifice when we repent and choose to live in God's ways. Before it required animals' blood which was practiced by God's prophets, yet Isa came to fulfill the requirements, therefore we won't need the animal sacrifice anymore.

Sorry to say, but how did He, God, slept with Mary to make himself come to the earth in the form of a human being named Jesus? Third, If Jesus died who did see him coming back to life? Fourth, When was Jesus born? If you have the answers to this questions then the Bible is correct if not then read the Quran and understand it and you'll see that Muhammad came to correct mankind thinking just like all the other prophets did to worship the only God, not come up with new names or three Gods because that's what the devil is doing to you. He's making you believe that Jesus is God when God created Jesus like He created all of us. So come back to Allah (God) and only pray to him. You can't put the word Lord (God) in front of a man's name. That is like worshiping a rock or a wall. Islam is the only way Allahu Akbar (God is great).

Here are the answers to your questions:

1. There were many verses showing that He is God. Some of them are:
"For unto us a Child (Isa) is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I AM He, you will die in your sins” (John 8:24).

'“Jesus answered them, “I and My Father are one.” Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him"' (John 8:24).

Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God” (John 10:30-33).

Etc.

2. Isa was born not through man's touch yet was put into the virgin's Mary womb. This is also confirmed by the Quran (Qs 3:45-46)

3. Isa was resurrected witnessed by Mary Magdalene and other apostles (John 20).

4. According to a research Isa was born in late November of 5 BC.

Also, the Christians don't worship three Gods, but one God. The three persons don't represent three Gods but one God. They are like head, hand and feet which each functions differently but one.

If the Bible is God's word, then God made a scientific error when he created the plants first and then the sun. Refer to Genesis in your Bible.

Most of your muslim users keep telling you that the Bible in its current form is not the Injeel that you so eloquently refer to all the time.

Dear Saadiq,

I don't want to debate with the facts which you mentioned above. The Quran was there in hundred years after the Al-Masih, and it was even very much longer after the universe created with all the living creatures in it. The creation is convicted magic, and I won't debate it. Yet, Isa came to bring Salvation and Forgiveness for our sin. He was from above and wanted to save all his people to remain with him forever. Sin separates us from God, yet the blood of Isa cleanse our sin. Whoever believes this will be alive eternally.

My brothers and sisters,

Everything is written in Quran. Bible is book from Allah. It was given to my prophet Jesus by the angel Girail. But it was for old times. After that, my Allah sent a complete book Quran of my prophet Muhammad pbuh. The people who was in the time of Jesus if they believed in Bible and Allah they must be in heaven. And the people in the times of prophet Muhammad pbuh who believed in prophet Muhammad pbuh and Allah, they will go paradise. And who didn't believe they will surely be in hell forever.

Dear brother Faisal,

Thank you for your comment. You are right that Isa came to the Israelis. However, Isa told his disciples to go to the other nations to tell them what they had witnessed. “But you will receive power w hen the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Injil, Acts 1:8). “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptiz ing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age ”(Injil, Matthew 29:19-20). Isa wanted the world to know that He is God's words who came down to earth. He is Son of God and taught God's commandments to the people He met, died, resurrected from the death, and ascended to Heaven. He will be coming on the second time to judge the world. Whoever don't believe this, will not come to the Father (Allah) in heaven. “'Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”' (Injil, John 14:6).

Dear Jasmin,

The bible was compilled 100 years after Isa(as) passed away by Constantine. And after 10 years after the bible was compiled, Constantine passed away. Hours before he passed away, he converted to Christianity. As far as Muhammad (saw) not being mentioned in the Bible, he is in the hebrew bible where Mahmood is Hebrew for Muhammad.

I am sorry that we can't find Muhammad or “Mahmood” in the Bible. It should have been written clearly and several times in the Bible if what you said is right. Could you show me what's the verse in the Hebrew Bible?

Dear friends,

The problem arises when Muslims deny the Deity of Jesus, pointing their literal meaning of the "father-son" relationship between God and Jesus.
To make it clear to Muslims, God is a Supreme Being whose nature is not understandable in this space-matter-ti me realm, unless He reveals Himself.

The human body is composed of body parts - head, hands, legs, ears, eyes, heart, etc., each part having a specific function, just as one can stretch his hand to pick up a coin, or uses his feet to "go" to school. He won't say "my hand picked up the coin" but would say "I picked up the coin". This is the exact concept as to why Christians say that God visited us in human form. Whether He used His feet, hands, or face, we don't know.

Muslims agree that God appeared to Moses in the form of a burning bush. The same God appeared again to Moses as a pillar of cloud and "spoke to Moses face to face".

So who is to argue that this God cannot appear as a human being?

A fulfilled prophecy from the Quran:

S 30:1-4 "The Roman empire has been defeated - in a land close by: but they,(even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious within bid' years. With Allah is the decision, in the past and in the future”

Bid': It means short-period- from 3 to 9 years. The period between the loss of Jerusalem (614-15 A.C) by the Romans and their victory at Issus (622 A.C) was seven years, and that to the penetration of Persia by Heraclius was nine years.

Muslim,

The Roman fall was prophesied long before the Quran. It was through the prophet Daniel. You may read about this prophecy in the Bible (Old Testament) in the book of Daniel 7:23-24.

Thanks to you. I believe in my Bible now much more than ever before. I believe that it's God's word and is the most authentic.

Do Christian and Muslim serve the same God?

Having different ways of worshiping don't mean that Islam's and Christian's God is different. The fact is that there are similarities in viewing God by the two religions. They both acknowledge that God created the world, who is powerful, merciful, and full of grace. However, one of the differences is that the Christians believe the God manifests into three persons: God Father, God Son, and Holy Spirit. And Islam believes that God is Tawhid, not Trinity. If you want to learn more about this differences, please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/muslim-beliefs/the-muslim-problem-of-tauhid-god-s-oneness.html, and http://www.isaandislam.com/christian-beliefs/why-do-christians-believe-that-there-are-three-gods.html.

Will Muslims, who came more than 500 years after Isa (Jesus Christ) and who believe that the Bible was altered, tell where and when it was altered and by whom?

I really do not believe that the Quran is a book from the God of the Bible. Many Christian erroneously believe that the God of Islam is the same God of Christian. This is completely false. The Name Allah, is it a revealed name? Did God tell Prophet Mohammed that my name is Allah? If not where does the name come from? In the Bible see Moses encounter with God and how God himself reveal His real name. In Exodus 3:13-15, find out who truly is Allah, you will know where the Quran came from.

Thank you for your comment. We believe there is only one true God. It's amazing that most people realize, there is something beyond this life and someone beyond this world. It's God and His Kingdom. “The heavens declare  the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun” (Zabur, Psalm 19:1-4).

From the beginning God revealed Himself. The Bible taught, He revealed Himself as “I am”. '“...'I am who I am”' (Taurat, Exodus 3:14). He is the God who wants to be sought. He longs for an intimate relationship.

However, some people call God, Allah. The name of Allah: is from Semitic language. Al means the, and Ilah means deity, God. Semitic language is a group language consisting of Arabic, Amhar, and Hebrew. In Hebrew, Allah means Elohim, El, Elyon and Eloah.

Since Taurat was written in Hebrew, therefore the first name for God the Creator is Elohim.

“Allah” was firstly used by those who were called “Kafiroon” in Mecca before Muhammad was born. The Arabic Christians at that time also used Allah. Yet, nowadays, Muslims claim Allah is Islamic name for God.

Blessings.
