False Prophecies of Muhammad

Muhammad
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGDC64jC-Qo People talk to me all the time “What about the predictions of the great prophet? What he said 1400 years ago is coming true today.” The most famous hadith that they quote is the one prophet Muhammad said that a time will come when Arabs, goat herders, the Bedouins will be with each other in building tall structures. So they go “Look, they've built Burj Khalifa and the SaudI Tower and Jeddah Tower. Arabs are building tall structures as prophet Muhammad had predicted but the second part of the same prediction is that slave girls will be giving birth to their masters. Now we don't have any slavery but they don't talk about that. They go “Well, he meant something else. He meant maids. It's not slaves in this…

Women in Islam

Practices
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Csl0gxWnyzs According to Surah 2:282 of the Quran, the testimony of a woman is worth half the testimony of a man. Muhammad explains why in Sahih Bukhari 2658 The prophet said “Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?”. The woman said “Yes”. He said “This is because of the deficiency of her mind.” The testimony of women is unreliable because women are stupid. Muhammad also claims that women are morally deficient. In Sahil Bukhari 1052 Muhammad says that most of the people in hell are women. He tells us why in Sahih Muslim 142. “O womenfolk, you should give charity and ask much forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of hell.” A wise lady among them said “Why is…

A Comparison of Violence in the Bible & the Koran

Practices
https://youtu.be/JzU7MoVp4lc Recently there was a study done in which a statistical analysis was made of Quran and the Old Testament and the New Testament which made claims that the Bible was more violent than the Quran. This struck me as a bit odd because my analysis shows just the opposite.  I define violence as political physical violence i.e. when Cain kills Abel, this to me is not political violence because what I'm interested in is in the Old Testament, how Jews kill non-Jews and in the New Testament how Christians are ordered to kill non-Christians, just as when I measure violence in the Quran, the sunnah and the hadith, I'm interested in political violence. And the other thing is I'm interested in actual violence. You would need to do more…

The Islamic View of Paradise

Salvation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsqqevAGq08 This is how Muhammad really won converts. If you join me in this life and you survived battle, you're going to take home female captives, you're going to take home the treasure. If you die in battle, you're going to a paradise where an eternity of deflowering young virgins awaits you.  Tell me if you think this is a message from God, that this is what God has in store for people who believe in him. Let me just read what the Quran says. I'll describe these maidens of pleasure known as hoodies in Paradise, what awaits them if they are God-fearing and they're allowed to enter Paradise. Surah 55:54-58 Reclining upon the couches, line with silk brocade and the fruits of the two gardens will be near at…

Every Muslim Will Go To Hell, according to the Quran

Salvation
https://youtu.be/fMuM_OwI_74 Recently I talked with ex-Muslim Mohamed Faridi about the differences between Islam and Christianity. What he said about the Islamic doctrine of hell may shock you.  (Thaddeus): So you've been a Christian for a decade or so, and you had of course a couple decades in Islam, so you know both religions pretty well. What would you say the key differences between Islam and Christianity are?  (Mohamad): The key difference is hell and heaven. One ends you in hell, one ends you in heaven. Islam definitely guarantees, the Quran promises every Muslim the word, actually uses the word “wāriduhā”, meaning “entering”. Every Muslim will enter in hell and from within hell, Allah will pick out some Muslims for paradise, so that's the guarantee of the Quran. I'm not teaching…

Shabir Ally’s mathematical miracles debunked

Quran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltrfIslJ9gE In his debate with brother David Wood, Shabir Ally made two attempts to prove that the Quran has several numerological miracles concerning the number seven, which according to Shabir proves that the Quran is from God since no man can insert such mathematical wonders. In this video, however, we will show you, in a matter of minutes, that Shabir Ally has overlooked a number of things, four things to be exact. First, it is definitely possible for humans to insert this kind of multiple into a text. Second, the example given by Shabir is one of those possibilities. Third, the perfect number of 28, which Shabir mentions has been known for literally ages before Muhammad was born. Fourth, a very brief search into the Bible gives us a bunch…

Are there numerical miracles in the Quran?

Quran
https://youtu.be/Nuc4KOkmR9A Now they're arguing about the mathematical patterns of the Quran as proof of its divine origin and yet when you point out something similar in the Bible they say no. You can do that with almost anything, you can take anything and find the mathematical marvel because what you do is: you count a number of words and it doesn't equal some mathematical marvel so you ignore this one, you ignore that one and keep going through different words and counting them until you get to some pattern and then you say “It's a mathematical marvel”.  For instance, it's a common claim that the Quran uses the word “day” 365 times. Isn't that a miracle that Allah knew that there are 365 days mentioned? If you actually start looking…

The Quran and the Problem of Abrogation

Quran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkRCpQ8LA4Y The doctrine of abrogation. As Christians we believe that God can give revelations in one Covenant and then later on make a different Covenant with a different group of people. What's the difference here with this doctrine of abrogation that Muslims believe in? Why would we consider this a problem? The difference is: In the scriptures we have God announcing a future Covenant that will take centuries for it to be fulfilled. So circumstances have changed, the people have changed and God is preparing people for a New Covenant that doesn't necessarily cancel out the previous commandments but fulfills them and they are consummated in the coming of Christ. What you have in the Quran is a phenomenon in which Muhammad will say “This is what we're going to…

Abrogation, the way that self-contradiction in the Quran is resolved

Quran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDVM2bw0v3Y Abrogation - this is the way that  self-contradiction in the Quran is  resolved. Surah 2:106 “We do not  abrogate a verse or cause it to be  forgotten except that we bring forth one  better than it or similar to it. Do you  not know that Allah is over all things competent?” Here's the problem. How do you handle the  situation where one verse in the Quran  contradicts another verse? It's very  important to Muslims to believe that the  Quran contains no contradictions. So how  is this dealt with? Very simply. The later  verse cancels the earlier verse, which is  now superseded and the  self-contradiction disappears, except  that it doesn't. It's still there because  the older verse is not removed from the  Quran. Think of a software manual showing  the…
