Islam, Muhammad, Quran And The Hadiths

Is Islam a peaceful religion?  What are freedoms like in an Islamic country?  How are people of other beliefs treated in these countries?

"So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush.."
Sura 9:5

"Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection."
Sura 9:29

"And fight in the way of Allah, and know that Allah is Hearing, Knowing."
Sura 2:244    

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement."
Sura 5:33

"So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish."
Sura 47:4

The Quran teaches men can have up to four wives.

"And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course."           
Sura 4:3

The Quran teaches it is ok to beat your wife.

"Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great."
Sura 4:34

The Quran teaches it is ok with Allah if you lie.

"Allah indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and He is the Knowing the Wise."
Sura 66:2         

Allah could have saved us, but He had to fill hell.

"And if We had pleased We would certainly have given to every soul its guidance, but the word (which had gone forth) from Me was just: I will certainly fill hell with the jinn and men together."
Sura 32:13    

Compare Jesus To Muhammad Using The Quran       

Jesus did miracles (Sura 3:49, 5:110), but Mohammad did not (Sura 13:8 "thou art a warner [of coming divine judgment] only"; also 6:37; 6:109, 17:59 and 17:90-93); Jesus was sinless (Sura 3:46), but Mohammad sinned and needed forgiveness (Sura 40:55: "ask forgiveness of thy sin"; 42:5: "ask forgiveness for those on Earth"; 47:19  "ask forgiveness for thy sin"; 48:2 "that Allah may forgive thee of thy sin").  Jesus was called "the Messiah" and was even born of a virgin (3:45-57)!

How could Muhammad be the greatest of the prophets?  If you would just follow the Quran as a Muslim, you would have to view Jesus as greater than Muhammad.


Islam teaches:

1)  God is virtually unknowable.
2)  God will send people to Hell or Paradise as he chooses. (Sura 32:13)
3)  Jesus was not the Son of God. (Sura 19:35, 112:3)
4)  Deny that Jesus is God in the flesh. (Sura 4:116)
5)  Deny that Jesus died on the cross. (Sura 4:157-58)
6)  Deny that Jesus rose again. (Sura 4:157-58)
7)  Deny that Jesus is the final, conclusive revelation of God.
8)  Deny that Jesus is the way to God.
9)  God requires total obedience to Islam.
10)  It is the unforgivable sin of "Shirk" to say that Jesus is God. (Sura 4:116)
11)  God required the works of Muhammad to complete his words of   judgement to man.
12)  The Bible is corrupt and cannot be trusted.
13)  Deny the death of Jesus on the cross as payment for our sins, rather Islam teaches that salvation is based upon good works. (Sura 4:157-58)
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
John 14:6
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Acts 4:12
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber...Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."
John 10:1,7-9
