I don't want to really go down this route, this is going off topic but it does show how millitant muslims and islamic law are based on what the koran
says, be it their own interpretation or the law of the land. If what I quoted is wrong then it seems what they quote is even more misunderstood.
Example for crosses all over the Middle East they are banned, here in Europe muslims want them banned and taking people to court over them.
It is in their scripture to do so, not religious rights but a command to conquer another religion. Hundreds of churches have now been converted to
Mosques here in the UK, it will always be conquest victory for some.
But I really do not know how you could compare Muhammad and Christ in lifestyle and final message of God's works as a faith.
Hadith Qudsi 19:5: "The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of
Ishaq:552 "The Quraysh had put pictures in the Ka'aba including two of Jesus and one of Mary. Muhammad ordered that the pictures should be erased."
As for covering women up it is in their Koran, if it is not like some claim then please research this to put it right if this is not the case.
Qur'an 33:59 "Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and all Muslim women to draw cloaks and veils all over their bodies (screening
themselves completely except for one or two eyes to see the way). That will be better."
Muslim:C9B1N31 "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah, and believe in me (that)
I am the Messenger and in all that I have brought."
The Christ we know of the Bible never used such words as a definative answer to his lifes work and preacing message.
Christ said, "Believe and live!" (John 6:47; 11:25-26).
Christ prayed "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34).
The Bible says, "we wrestle not against flesh and blood" and "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal" (Ephesians 6:12; 2 Corinthians 10:4).
Qur'an:9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every
stratagem of war."
Qur'an:9:112 "The Believers fight in Allah's Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed."
Qur'an:9:29 "Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission."
Ishaq:324 "He said, 'Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must have no rivals.'"
aq:300 "I am fighting in Allah's service. This is piety and a good deed. In Allah's war I do not fear as others should. For this fighting is
righteous, true, and good."
Qur'an:8:65 "O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a
hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding."
This happens all the time, people leave the UK and US to fight for Islam.
r'an:8:73 "The infidels aid one another. Unless you do the same there will be anarchy in the land. Those who accepted Islam and left their
homes to fight in Allah's Cause are good Muslims."
Christ shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Ephesians 1:7).
On the otherhand Muhammad was into killing a lot.
Tabari VIII:187 "The [sixty-two-year old] Messenger of Allah married Mulaykah. She was young and beautiful. One of the Prophet's wives came
to her and said, 'Are you not ashamed to marry a man who killed your father during the day he conquered Mecca?" She therefore took refuge from
He liked the younger generaton a lot with lots of lustful stories in his journeys.
Ishaq:311 "The Apostle saw Ummu'l when she was a baby crawling before his feet and said, 'If she grows up, I will marry her.' But he died
before he was able to do so."
Tabari VII:7 "The Prophet married Aisha in Mecca three years before the Hijrah, after the death of Khadija. At the time she was six."
Ishaq:281 "When the Apostle came to Medina he was fifty-three."
Tabari IX:128 "When the Prophet married Aisha she very young and not yet ready for consummation."
Tabari IX:137 "Allah granted Rayhanah of the [Jewish] Qurayza to His Messenger as booty [but only after she had been forced to watch him decapitate
her father and brother, seen her mother hauled off to be raped, and her sisters sold into slavery]."
Lots of decieving going on too here.
Bukhari:V4B52N268 "Allah's Apostle said, 'War is deceit.'"
Qur'an 4:142 "Surely the hypocrites strive to deceive Allah. He shall retaliate by deceiving them."
Bukhari:V7B71N661 "Magic was worked on Allah's Apostle and he was bewitched so that he began to imagine doing things which in fact, he had not
Qur'an 8:30 "Remember how the unbelievers plotted against you (Muhammad). They plotted, and Allah too had arranged a plot; but Allah is the best
Qur'an 13:27 "Say, 'God leads whosoever He wills astray.'"
Satan seems to have some effect on him too.
Tabari VI:110 "When Muhammad brought a revelation from Allah canceling what Satan had cast on the tongue of His Prophet, the Quraysh said,
'Muhammad has repented of [reneged on] what he said concerning the position of our gods with Allah. He has altered [the bargain] and brought
something else.' Those two phrases which Satan had cast on Muhammad's tongue of were in the mouth of every polytheist. The Messenger said, 'I have
fabricated things against Allah and have imputed to Him words which He has not spoken.'"
As for women
The Bible teaches that a husband is to love his wife and be willing to die for her. (Ephesians 5:25)
Tabari IX:113 "Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to
food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their
bodies lawful in his Qur'an."
Qur'an 4:11 "Allah directs you in regard of your Children's (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females.... These are
settled portions ordained by Allah."
I'm not sure how many times this happens but rape victims in Muslim countries need 4 male witnesses to solve the issue, people have already made
thread about this on ATS.
r'an 4:15 "If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; if they testify,
confine them to houses until death [by starvation] claims them."
I could go on for ages and no doubt many others will use quotes about Jesus of the Bible, but I can not believe you can find more holes in what Jesus
of the Bible said which can be misunderstood or used in the same ways in which the Middle East is based on by law and actions of the people.
