WHO IS ALLAH? Part 1

Question:

Who is Allah?

I understand that he is the God of Muslims and the religion of Islam, but can you please give a short introduction, while explaining the meaning of the word ‘Allah’?

Answer:

Who is Allah?

‘Allah’ is the Arabic term for the One and only Creator of the universe. It is NOT a name for a tribal Arabian God or the God of Muslims. Thus, both Muslim and Christian Arabs refer to God as ‘Allah’ although their concept of God may differ. Read more of this post

Ten Reasons Muhammad Could Not Have Authored the Qur’an.

Source: http://www.manyprophetsonemessage.com/2014/03/18/ten-reasons-muhammad-could-not-have-authored-the-quran/


A problem facing many Scriptures is multiple authorship over many generations. The Old Testament consists of 39 books authored by numerous individuals over a period of many centuries. The New Testament contains 27 books written by multiple authors spanning a period of nearly half a century. The questions and uncertainties that surround the chronology and authorship of the Bible, for example many of the books were written anonymously, only serve to hinder one from accepting, at least wholesale, that it is the pure word of God.

This is not a problem that affects the Qur’an. There is no doubt that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was the person responsible for transmitting the Qur’an. There are mass historical reports that support this claim, and the Qur’an itself confirms that it was revealed to him. Although Muhammad was responsible for transmitting the Qur’an, was he its author? It will now be demonstrated that it is impossible for Muhammad to have been the author of the Qur’an: Read more of this post

What ALLAH says about IDOL WORSHIP

When you are active in the Religion Debate Forum, you will read “ALLAH IS SATAN” or “ALLAH IS PAGAN GOD”. Part of them claims Allah is one of the idols. This reference I did to copy and paste and show them what Allah says about Idol Worship.


AL-QUR’AN

HQ 5:3 – ALL KIND OF ANIMAL THAT HAS BEEN SLAUGHTERED FOR IDOLATROUS ALTARS, FORBIDDEN TO EAT.

HQ 5:90 – IDOLATROUS PRACTICES IS LOATHSOME EVIL OF SATAN DOING.

HQ 14:35 – ABRAHAM PRAY TO ALLAH TO PROTECT HIS GENERATIONS FROM IDOL WORSHIPING.

HQ 21:58 – ABRAHAM DESTROY THE BIGGEST IDOL CREATED BY HIS FATHER

HQ 22:30 – ALLAH COMMANDS MUSLIMS TO AVOID IDOL WORSHIPING

HQ 31:13 – IDOLATRY IS A GROSS INJUSTICE

HQ 4:48 – GOD DOES NOT FORGIVE IDOLATRY

HQ 4:116 – GOD DOES NOT FORGIVE IDOL WORSHIP (if maintained until death)

HQ 39:65 – IF YOU EVER COMMIT IDOL WORSHIP, ALL YOUR WORKS NULLIFIED AND YOU WILL BE WITH THE LOSERS


HADITH AND THE BIOGRAPHY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD PBUH (SEERAH)

Muslim (832) narrated from ‘Urwah ibn ‘Abasah that he said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “With what were you sent?” He said, “I was sent to uphold the ties of kinship,TO BREAK THE IDOLS, and so that Allaah would be worshipped alone with no partner or associate.”

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar said:

This hadeeth indicates that it is prescribed to remove things that may tempt or confuse the people, whether they are buildings, people, animals or inanimate objects.

1 – The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) sent Khaalid ibn al-Waleed (may Allaah be pleased with him) on a CAMPAIGN TO DESTROY AL-‘UZZA.

2 – and he sent Sa’d ibn Zayd al-Ashhali (may Allaah be pleased with him) on a campaign TO DESTROY MANAAT.

3 – And he sent ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) on a CAMPAIGN TO DESTROY ANOTHER BIG IDOL CALLED SUWAA’. All of that happened after the Conquest of Makkah.

4 – Jarir all the way to Yemen TO DESTROY A HOUSE IN WHICH IDOLS WERE WORSHIPPED. ( as related in the Hadith by Bukhari (Volume 5: Book 59, Number 643) – he blessed Jarir and his army five times after they had done the job – which clearly indicates the nobility of this action.

After defeat by Muhammad’s forces at the Battle of UhudAbu Sufyan ibn Harb, leader of the Quraysh army, is said to have called on Hubal for support to gain victory in their next battle, saying “Show your superiority, Hubal”.[6] When Muhammad conquered Mecca in 630, HE REMOVED AND HAD DESTROYED THE STATUE OF HUBAL, ALONG WITH THE OTHER 360 IMAGES AT THE KAABA., and dedicated the structure to Allah.[7]


https://www.al-islam.org/the-message-ayatullah-jafar-subhani/chapter-48-conquest-makkah

A large number of idol-temples were situated around Makkah. They were the objects of respect for many tribes. In order to uproot idol-worship from the region of Makkah the PROPHET SENT BATTALIONS OF SOLDIERS TO DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS TO DESTROY THE IDOL-TEMPLES SITUATED THERE. It was also announced in Makkah itself that whoever happened to have an idol in his house should break it immediately

Whenever you read the Quran, seek refuge with God from SATAN THE OUTCAST

When you hear they claim Allah is Satan just show to them:

Sura:

16:98

فَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

What does Islam say about Rape? [Part 2]

by  • DECEMBER 26, 2014


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Kaleef K. Karim

This topic comes up frequently in the media. Whenever a person’s name begins with Omar or Ahmed (or any other Muslim name for that matter), they portray it as if the religion sanctions it as such. They do not care if the perpetrator has never practised their faith. As long as they can stir up more hatred towards Islam and Muslims, they have achieved their satanic goals, in demonizing the Muslim community.

The aim of this article is to refute the claims made by critics that ‘Islamic Law does not punish rapists’. Moreover, I have touched upon this topic before – you can read it here.

The following is an excellent excerpt on how the perpetrators of rape were dealt with in the lifetime of Prophet Muhammed (p) and the Companions. It is written by Islamic scholar Dr. Mufti Allie Haroon Sheikh (May God reward him for his efforts). Read more of this post

What does Islam say about Rape? [Part 1]

by  • DECEMBER 30, 2013


Kaleef K. Karim

One of the misconceptions towards Islam is that a rape victim gets punished, while the rapist gets unpunished and can walk away free. It is assumed by some that men in Islam can commit rape with impunity. Another lie anti-Muslim propagandists spread is that a victim who has been raped has to produce four witnesses in order for the rapist to get convicted and punished. Critics have never produced any evidence, either from the Quran or Hadith anywhere indicating that there has to be four eye-witnesses for a rapist to get punished. The only time when there has to be four eye-witnesses needed is for adultery, and this is practically impossible to convict anyone with.

The Prophet (p) stoned a man who had raped a woman. This is reported in Jami` at-Tirmidhi. The chapter of the narration goes like, “woman who is forced To commit adultery” i.e., rape:

“A women went out during the time of the Prophet to go to Salat, but she was caught by a man and he had relations with her, so she screamed and he left. Then a man came across her and she said: ‘That man has done this and that to me’, then she came across a group of Emigrants (Muhajirin) and she said: ‘That man did this and that to me.’ They went to get the man she thought had relations with her, and they brought him to her. She said: ‘Yes, that’s him.’ So they brought him to the Messenger of Allah, and when he ordered that he be stoned, the man who had relations with her, said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I am the one who had relations with her.’ So he said to her: ‘Go, for Allah has forgiven you.’ Then he said some nice words to the man (who was brought). And he said to the man who had relations with her: ‘Stone him.’ Then he said: ‘He has repented a repentance that, if the inhabitants of Al-Madinah had repented with, it would have been accepted from them.’” (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi volume 3, Book 15, Hadith 1454 [Hadith is Hasan – Darrusalaam])

Quran 9:5 – Sword Verse

by  • MARCH 4, 2014


Kaleef K. Karim

Whenever critics bring verses of the Quran to demonstrate that Islam is violent, that it sanctions Muslims to kill non-Muslims (as claimed by them), they do a cut and paste of a verse and try to hide its context. They don’t show the previous and the verses after, what it actually says. Take for example this passage,

“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” – Quran 9:5

‘Holy Bible’ Allows Lying – Deception?

by  • JANUARY 22, 2015


Kaleef K. Karim

Note: This is article is by no means to disrespect Christian or Judaic brethren/sisters or their Faith. I only endeavoured to write this article because of some extremist Christians and Jews who charge the Islamic faith with deception – that Islam as a religion sanctions lying in all circumstances, a claim which has no backing from Islamic scripture. I have already responded to these claims in the following Link: Response To ‘Taqiyya’ Deception – Lying.

I have carried out a thorough examination on verses in the Old Testament and New Testament on whether lying is allowed. The verses I encountered shows that deception and lying is permitted in certain situations. The circumstances in which the verses show that one can utter falsehood are the following:

– Lying in order to save innocent lives from being killed
– Using deception in war so as to get the upper hand
– Lying in order to conceal your motives
– Lying so one can escape persecution
– Deceiving so you don’t get harmed
– Advancing the Christian faith by means of deception Read more of this post
