The character of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him ﷺ)

A beautiful and passionate speech from young Da’ee Shaykh Abu Usamah exlplaining the marvelous character of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him ﷺ) clearing up misconception from christian Islamophobes such as jay Smith and David Wood.

Shaykh Abu Usamah is the Imaam of Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham, U.K. He grew up as a Christian in New Jersey. He found the truth and embraced Islam in 1986; he studied Islam from the University of Medina and earned his degree in Usul al-Deen and Da’wah.

His style and and eloquence in giving Da’wah really impressed me. He is a gift to Da’wah, may Allah gave blessing to Sh. Abu Usamah abundantly. Amen.

Dr. Jerald Dirks, John 1:1 and James White

Dr. Bart Ehrman answers James White on his criticism on Dr. Jerald Dirks on the Prologue of John (John 1:1-18) as a later addition on the Deen Show, dismissing him as having a mere liberal view. –

What an incredible arrogant by James who got his “doctorate” by PO Box against someone with Harvard Divinity School pedigree like Dr. Jerald Dirk

Hunting for the word of God

20130120-112423.jpg

No longer are we able to claim the authenticity of even one passage from the New Testament. The whole Christian edifice is now in danger. Conversely, today the authenticity of the Qur’ānic text is also being challenged by questioning the Islamic version of the preservation of the Muslim holy book, and the preservation of the canonical readings of the original text.

In the last decade, some missionaries started using the recent discovery of Qur’ānic manuscripts in Sana’a (Yemen) to claim that there had been an early corruption of the text.

This book aims at taking its readers on a journey through the latest academic research on the topic, in the hope of bringing them as close as possible to the heart of the debate. It also has, as its objective, to provide the most satisfactory answers to the most bewildering questions readers may have about the authenticity of the two texts in question—the New Testament and the Qur’an.

The author Sami Ameri who has expertise in both the Biblical and Qur’ānic teaching will enable the reader to gain solid knowledge of the subject matter tackled in this book. He has a M.A. degree in Islamic Studies. He is a Lecturer on Comparative religion and Islamic Creed. He is the author of several books in comparative religion and Islamic studies

The Glad Tidings Of The Messiah

Examining the words used in the narratives relating how the Prophets died and the verses dealing with the Prophet Jesus’ (pbuh) ascent to Allah’s Presence reveals an important fact: The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) did not die like the other prophets did, nor was he murdered by the unbelievers. Rather, our Lord took him up to His Presence. In this chapter, we will examine the Arabic words used to express how the Prophets died and how Prophet Jesus (pbuh) was raised up to Allah’s Presence, and investigate how the Qur’an uses them.

As we will see in greater detail later on, the Qur’an uses qataloohu (to kill), maata (to die), halaka (to perish), salaboohu (they crucified him), or some other special expressions to describe the death or murder of the Prophets. In the case of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh), Allah clearly states that he was not killed in any of those…

The Ten Commandments in the Bible and the Qur’an

Darvish

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

It has been said that everything in the Old Testament can be found in the New Testament, and that everything in the Old and New Testament can be found in the Qur’an. And the Qur’an defines and sets the standards of social and moral values for Muslims.

In the 17th chapter, “Al-Israa” (“The Night Journey”), verses 17:22, the Qur’an provides a set of moral stipulations which are “among the (precepts of) wisdom, which thy Lord has revealed to thee” that can be reasonably categorized as ten in number. These resemble the Ten Commandments handed down by God to Moses, and represents the fullest statement of the code of behavior every Muslim must follow. However, these verses are not regarded by Islamic scholars as set apart from any other moral stipulations in the Qur’an, nor are they regarded as a substitute, replacement, or abrogation of some…
