Reassess­ing The Bina­ry : Chris­t­ian Depic­tions of Jesus and Muhammad

In the face of Chris­t­ian polemics, a crit­i­cal explo­ration into Islam­ic teach­ings offers a path­way to uncov­er­ing the true essence of Prophet Muhammad’s mes­sage. This approach reveals the depth, com­pas­sion, and wis­dom of Islam, con­trast­ing sharply with mis­con­cep­tions. Embark on a jour­ney to chal­lenge nar­ra­tives, seek authen­tic­i­ty, and illu­mi­nate the pro­found prin­ci­ples of Islam. 

Resolving The Christian "I-Know-Nothing" Multi-Problem 1

Tex­tu­al Crit­i­cism : Resolv­ing The Chris­t­ian I‑Know-Noth­ing” Multi-Problem

Occa­sion­al­ly, we come across Chris­tians face-to-face and, more fre­quent­ly, on the Inter­net, who, when informed that the text of the gospels under­went cor­rup­tion dur­ing their trans­mis­sion, often react with the fol­low­ing type of ques­tions : When ? Who did the cor­rup­tion ? In what coun­try ? Before or after Muham­mad ? Why was it done ? How come no one noticed it?” These type of seem­ing­ly inno­cent” ques­tions mere­ly reveal the incal­cu­la­bly colos­sal igno­rance of the per­son in question.

The Myth of "The Myth of Moderate Islam" 2

The Myth of The Myth of Mod­er­ate Islam”

In a recent arti­cle in The Spec­ta­tor mag­a­zine in the UK, the evan­gel­i­cal leader Patrick Sookhdeo takes a swipe at Mus­lims and their reli­gion. Does his case stand up to scruti­ny ? Patrick Sookhdeo’s arti­cle (July 30, 2005) in London’s The Spec­ta­tor, The Myth of a Mod­er­ate Islam” reflects a dan­ger­ous trend in the war on ter­ror. Under the guise of inform­ing West­ern­ers about Islam, he is in fact spread­ing the very same dis­in­for­ma­tion that anti-Islam­ic polemics have been based upon for over 1,000 years. This plays direct­ly into the hands of Osama bin Laden, Abu Musab al-Zar­qawi and oth­ers, for it encour­ages the clash of civ­i­liza­tions” they so appalling­ly desire. It is indeed of the utmost impor­tance that we learn more about Islam and fight the scourge of extrem­ism with all the tools pos­si­ble. But Sookhdeo and those like him cor­rupt this process, seek­ing to advance their own agen­da by turn­ing the war on ter­ror into an ide­o­log­i­cal war against Islam.

Schism

Schism — A Mus­lim Answer To Fitna

This short movie was made in less than twen­ty four hours in response to Geert Wilder­s’s anti-Islam polem­i­cal movie, enti­tled Fit­na”. The six-minute video called Schism” by 33-year-old Sau­di blog­ger Raid Al-Saeed takes vio­lent Bib­li­cal texts and inter­spers­es them with fiery rants by a Chris­t­ian fun­da­men­tal­ist youth leader in Texas. Kudos goes to the Mus­lim broth­er who direct­ed the video. This is the kind of response” that is need­ed from Mus­lims, an intel­lec­tu­al response and not one which is based on emotion.

Response To "Muhammad as Al-Amin (the Trustworthy): How His Enemies Really Viewed Him" And The Christian Missionaries 3

Response To Muham­mad as Al-Amin (the Trust­wor­thy): How His Ene­mies Real­ly Viewed Him” And The Chris­t­ian Missionaries

It has become a habit for some to pub­lish respons­es to any paper deal­ing with the issue of Islam, its truth­ful­ness and the false­hood of oth­er reli­gions. This is par­tic­u­lar­ly true of the Chris­t­ian mis­sion­ar­ies as such peo­ple do not care whether they pro­vide an effi­cient respons­es or not ; all they care about is to respond, regard­less of the out­come. Is this reac­tion an idi­ot­ic one ? Well, we can­not claim that it is a stu­pid strat­e­gy ; because it is always use­ful to show your fol­low­ers that you are able to respond and speak loud­ly, drown­ing oth­er voic­es. The psy­cho­log­i­cal fac­tor is after all always impor­tant here. But what is glar­ing indeed are the con­tent of such respons­es” because the writer tries to show that he is com­pe­tent in the field when in actu­al fact he is total­ly unqualified.
