God says in Quran that the original texts of Bible and Torah do not exist as they have been corrupted/falsified by people and lost, the Christian scholars themselves accept this fact too. If Jesus is God according to corrupted Bible, then Adam, Noah Ibraheem, Moses and many others sent by Allah before Prophet Jesus must be Gods too. You, Christians know that in the Quran it is mentioned that Allah had sent 124,000 prophets in different religions in the past. The Koran says Jesus is the Spirit of God only, not says He is the God or Son of God, and Surah 18:27 states that no one can/will change God´s words any longer.
Do you have any idea how many times the Bible was changed by power head Christians who changed it to their liking to scare the common people. On the other hand, the Qu´ran has never been changed. Not even once. Mohammed (pbuh) received the message, he and his followers memorized it and wrote them down. And after his death they collected all the messages and compiled the Qu´ran. It has never been changed since. Want the TRUE sayings and guidance of ALLAH (GOD) ? You should read the Holy Qu´ran!!
Islam says the same as did all the Prophets before Jesus; obey and live your life according to Allah´s commandments to be successful in the Hereafter. With regard to confessing one´s sins, muslims do not need to confess to anyone/any priest because it is only Allah who can forgive sins. This is called Tawba.
We realise we have erred and seek Tawba by beseeching Allah for forgiveness and commit not to repeat the same again, for Allah is oft forgiving, most merciful.
In the Bible itself, any reference to Jesus as God is implicit. If he were a God, he would have said people to worship him. But instead he said, God is greater than me. How can he be a God when Jesus admits a God greater than him. In fact in Luke 18:19 Jesus (pbuh) is clearly saying that God is One, and he is not God - "Why do you call Me good?” Jesus replied. “No one is good except God alone."
If Jesus was GOD and he died on the cross who looked after the world while he was dead, when he came back to life, Who brought GOD back to life if GOD was dead?
All the Prophets were sent by Allah as a guide and warner to their people commanding them to obey Allah for their salvation in the Hereafter, i.e. Islam.
The last of the line of messengers was Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Allah´s guidance through him is the Quran. There is no need for an intercessor between man and his Creator.
The Bible was originally in Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew. Those that translate the Bible are scholars in those languages, and constantly trace it back to its original source. According to the original Bible is clear that Jesus is not God, and that there is only one God.
According to corrupted/falsified Bible you have is also clear that Jesus was crucified for the sins of the World, He chose this death, He overcame death by resurrecting 3 days later, He is now in Heaven, God did this because He is holy (separate sin) and because He is just and because He is love.
If the Bible Christians have were original, then it would not have mentioned such future events relating to things happened to Jesus just before he was allegedly crucified. The facts concerning curicification must have been explained in an other books written by other authors/ observers/ historians. As a matter of fact the truth is clearly explained only in the Quran
[Eğer bugün Hıristiyanların elindeki İncil Orijinal olsaydı; Hz. İsa’nın sözde öldürülmesinden hemen önceki kısa zaman diliminde bahsedilen sözde Çarmıha gerilmesine dair olaylar İncil’de değil, zamanın gözlemcileri/ yazarları/ tarihçileri tarafından kaleme alınmış herhangibir başka kitapta yazılı olurdu. Bu konudaki gerçekler sadece Kur´an´da yazılıdır]
But lots of media lie about Islam, if you want to truly know Islam, read the Quran completely a few times. In his entire life all the battles were never initiated by Prophet Mohammad’s side rather it was the other side who started and thus battles started. Also, Prophet Mohammad did not say anything like your sins will be forgiven if you only believe on me and God, rather one has to perform good deeds to expect heaven as reward God.
There are hundreds of cases that people of other religions have converted to Islam after reading Quran, even Bible lead many Cristians to Islam, if Cristianity was so true as Christians call it, why so many Cristians read Bible are converting to Islam, and no one converts Islam to Cristianity?
Those Christians who left Christianity, most of them have the genuine need of God. But the God in Christianity is too human and the Bible is so corrupted that their trust in Christianity dissolved. Jesus in Islam is just another prophet conveying the messages of God Almighty the Creator of the whole universe. Transition to Islam is easy as easy if a person says Islamic Confession of Faith by tongue and heart, that is “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad (pbuh) is the servant and Messenger of Allah”
Why are So Many Westerners Converting to Islam?
It is a fact that Islam is growing rapidly in the West. In the U.S. alone the number of Muslims has risen dramatically, about 10,000 in 1900 to 3 million or more in 1991 (some authorities say 4.5 million). Most of this growth is due to recent immigration and the high birth rate of Muslims (5 children per family on average), rather than to conversion. Still, the number of those who convert to Islam is significant. In the U.S., the majority are African-American (a third of all Muslims according to most authorities), but there have also been significant numbers of Anglos to convert as well, many of them well-educated.
What is motivating people to turn to Islam? A recent article in Christianity Today (Aug 20,1990) reported that in the U.S., the average age of those converting to Islam (31) is about twice that for conversion to Christian faith (age 16). It listed 5 main reasons given for becoming Muslim: Islam´s doctrine is simple and rational, all believers are equal, it is a "practical" religion, and lacks a priesthood. I read and clipped the article at the time, but when I recently pulled it out to re-read it, it struck me that those "reasons" merely parrot the arguments Muslim apologists use to propagate Islam. On reflection, I would say that all that they show is that Muslim apologetics is having some effect, but these are not necessarily what is motivating Americans to become Muslim.
An American Muslim interviewed in a fairly recent book (Neighbors: Muslims in North America. Friendship Press, 1989) gave the following reasons when asked why African-Americans are turning to Islam. I have heard the same things African-Americans in Philadelphia more than once. First on his list is racism in the church. "The discrimination that we feel makes Islam attractive to us because it´s a way of rejecting the culture that will not have us. In sociological terms I think that one of the reasons that many African-Americans go to Islam as opposed to Christianity--and many of us have been raised Christian--is that the people doing these things to us are also Christian." How often does one not hear it said, "America is no more segregated than at eleven o´clock on Sunday mornings." The second reason he gives is, I believe, also important in the conversion of Anglo-Americans. "Another factor--and this is part of what attracted me to Islam--is direction and discipline." Our society is disintegrating for lack of discipline, especially in the city. Through its disciplined life-style, to many people Islam seems to hold out the promise of helping them get their lives back in order again.
Finally, there is a third factor which probably no one would ever mention explicitly, for obvious reasons, but which, I believe, is nevertheless important. This is the fact that Islam offers a conversion experience and the opportunity to get one´s life in order, without needing to confess ones sin and need of salvation. In fact, Islam makes quite a point of denying these truths. It tells people they do not need salvation; all they need is to follow the "guidance" of God´s law, and they will make it to heaven. That is something the natural man likes to hear.
