How To Witness To Muslims 4

This article will deal primarily with areas in which Christians and Muslims disagree. When the Quran and the Bible disagree both cannot be correct.

Bible teachings about the great flood of Noah

Genesis 6:10, 17-18: And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. . . . And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons* wives with thee.

Surah 11: It was revealed to Noah: None of thy people will believe except those who have believed already . . . But construct an Ark . . . for they are about to be overwhelmed (in the Flood) . . . So he said: embark ye with them on the waves . . . and Noah called out to his son, who had separated himself (from the rest): O my son! Embark with us, and be not with the unbelievers! The son replied: I will betake myself to some mountain; it will save me from the water. Noah said: This day nothing can save, from the command of Allah . . . And the waves came between them, and the son was overwhelmed in the flood.

The birth of John the Baptist to Zacharias

Luke 1:13: But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

Luke 1:20: And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

Luke 1:62-63: And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.

Surah 3:41: He said, O my Lord! Give me a Sign! Thy Sign, was the answer, Shall be that thou shalt speak to no man for three days.

Allah and Jehovah are vastly different and cannot possibly be regarded as one and the same

Romans 5:8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Surah 2:190: For Allah loveth not transgressors.

Surah 3:57: As to those who believe and work righteousness, Allah will pay them (in full) their reward; but Allah loveth not those who do wrong.

The Quran says that works have saving merit

Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Surah 3:57: As to those who believe and work righteousness, Allah will pay them (in full) their reward; but Allah loveth not those who do wrong.

The Quran teaches that we cannot become children of God

John 1:10-12: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

1 John 3:1-2: Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Hebrews 12:5-7: And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Surah 39:4: Had Allah wished to take to Himself a son, He could have chosen whom He pleased out of those whom He doth create: but . . . (He is above such things.) He is Allah, the One, the Irresistible.

Surah 37:151-152: Is it not that they say, from their own invention, Allah has begotten children? But they are liars!

Surah 5:18: The Jews and Christians say: We are the sons of Allah, and his beloved. Say: Why then doth He punish you for your sins?

Allah and Jehovah are vastly different and cannot possibly be regarded as one and the same. Allah is unknowable. Jehovah is personal and wants to be known. Allah changes his mind. Jehovah never changes. Allah is a simplex unity. Jehovah is triune. Allah has no son. Jehovah has an incarnate son, Jesus.
