@David Wood

I want to point out something in regards to the article "Has Islam Misunderstood Christianity? A Christian Response to Bassam Zawadi’s Debate with Dr. James R. White"

In it Bassam states the following whichI believe bro Sam forgot to address. He said:
"...But there’s also a verse in the Quran that says that there are verses which are clear and verses which are ambiguous in meaning – AND THAT ONLY PEOPLE WHO STUIDY ALOT SUCH AS SCHOLARS WOULD BE ABLE TO KNOW THOSE MEANINGS..."
HE thus reads 3:7 by the unusual rending of 3:7, which I'm only aware of a scholar named "Mujahid" ever having rendered it that way, as follows:

...and none knows its interpretation, save only God AND those firmly rooted in knowledge say, 'We believe in it; all is from our Lord'; yet none remembers, but men possessed of minds. S. 3:7

HOWEVER this is NOT THE QURAN IS USUALLY READ. There is a "WAKFA LAAZIM" or "COMPULSORY PAUSE" in recitation btw "SAVE ALLAH" and the conjunction "and". Thus the verse is always rendered as:
...and none knows its interpretation, save only God(PAUSE). And those firmly rooted in knowledge say, 'We believe in it. 3:7

Thus it makes the Quran even more ridiculous for it contains verses THAT NO ONE BUT ALLAH WILL EVER KNOW. The obvious qs then is why did He reveal it.

The latest articles are highly representative of Answering Islam, nonacademic and nonsense at best.

Rebuttal to Ibn Anwar article is a big joke just see his article, how academic it is and compare it with answering Islam article, see it for yourself.

Coming on to crucifixion in Egypt .Islamic awareness completely shatters this claim ,but the answering Islam team dosent want to give up.

Islamic awareness gives a highly academic and scholarly punch in the heart of answering Islam on every topic .

You might think iam lying just take a look at the articles of answering Islam and Islamic awareness and the article of new testament anachronism of Ibn anwar and decide it for yourself.

By the way answering Islam keep up the YOUR GOOD UN ACADEMIC WORK .

ali khan said...

The latest articles by answering Islam is highly representative of it , a typical UN ACADEMIC ..

See the article on 'DID THE EGYPTIANS USED CRUCIFIXION' at Islamic awareness and same thing on answering Islam and see it for yourself.

Islamic Awareness is a highly academic and scholarly punch in the heart of answering Islam

Coming to the article of Ibn Anwar on 'THE ANACHRONISTIC TALE OF MARK 2:26 ' , again compare the rebuttal and see it for your self .

David Wood said...

Anyone notice how this Muslim blasphemously identifies himself as Jesus?

Naren said...

The mind numbing repeating of senseless rhetoric is typical to Muslims. Without even reading the names, you know that the fruits have not fallen far from the tree. Somehow you feel that just repeating the same thing again and again will turn nonsense into sense... please bear in mind that you are in the presence of Christians who are commanded again and again to study, learn and defend (Eph 4:14, 1 Pet 3:15, Acts 17:11, etc) not "parrot and repeat" a.k.a. Islam.

To both the so called taqiyya practicer who has named himself above as "@JESUS CHRIST" and @Ali Khan (Can almost bet both are the same person)...I suggest to possibly read http://answering-islam.org/authors/katz/rebuttals/zawadi/parroting.html

In Christ

@ ali khan,

I believe you are the one hiding behind the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Don’t you feel comfortable hidding yourself behind the name Mohammad. Let me tell you this, Mohammad can not save you neither can Allah. Know this, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.

You are a typical moslem calling everything and anything that refutes Islam and the Quran to be un-academic. But this is what moslems do. What is UN-ACADEMIC about these articles, that they refute the Quran. Speaking of ACADEMICS, do you know that Quran can not be considered an academic book because it is the only book in the world that has no chronology. It is a mumbo jumbo of verses taken from here and there. A fifth grader and put things in order better then the Quran. According to moslems every article or scientific proof that refute the Quran or Mohammad is shattered. You can shout from the roof tops all you want that any scientific proof which states that for example, the fly does not carries antidote to the disease it carries on its wings is shattered. But then again it is your beautiful mind that thinks that not logic or science.

@ali khan and the one whom calls himself "Jesus Christ"

I was once a very strict practicing sunni, more specifically deoband, Muslim and was very upset when i first saw the site answering-islam in 2001. At tht time net was very slow n i lived in a third world country. I searched n searched until i fnd Osama Abdullah's answering-christianity site. I was so happy n always tried to throw his articles at Christians. HOWEVER I NEVER EVEN DARED to read wht the Christians at answering-islam wrote. In yrs to come i noticed hadith were full of BS so i became Ahlul Quran for nine yrs. ONLY LAST YR i started hearing some debates btw Chritians n Muslims n then i noticed wht a BIG BLUNDER the Quran itself makes when e.g. it commands Christians to JUDGE(PRESENT TENSE) by wht Allah had revealed in the gospel n must not ever fail to do so(5:47) n many other verses saying the Quran CONFIRMS/MUSADDIQ(literally CLAIMS TRUE) that which is BAINA YADAIHI(PRESENT AT THE TIME IN QS) and THT WHICH IS M'AAHUM(WITH THEM). That was a huge blow. After that i actually started reading some articles at answering-islam and my conclusin is THEY ARE THE BOMB. Anyone who reads them and still holds onto islam must be a fool. So i became Christian.

Using Jesus Christ name to write such a nonsense should be a crime haha, i mean Jesus when refuting someone he would say why they were wrong, yet this "jesus christ" writting here say : "they are un academic" yet he fails to say why, he says "Islam awareness is more academic" and also he fails to say why, it's ironic using Jesus name to say such things haha

I subscribed to your youtube page, you have some good videos there, God keep blessing you and your team!!!

Johnnykzj - regarding surah 3:7 - the clear verses are referred to in the verse as the mother of the book. According to ibn kathir and imam bukhari, the mother of the book is surah al fatihah. That would make a grand total of 7 clear verses . The remaining 113 chapters thus would be known only to allah.

ali khan said...

What can be expected from people whose basic believes the trinity , hypostatic union and penal substitution are at best INTELLECTUALLY BANKRUPT.

They will automatically say and believe things as dubious and mind numbing .

Just go and see the articles on Islamic awareness and compare with answering Islam .

See how academically enriched the articles are on Islamic awareness are and how hollow they are on answering Islam , repeating same things like a broken record.

See the article of Ibn Anwar on mark 2:26 and the answering Islam rebuttal ,see it for yourself , who is academically hollow.

"The prophesy of Jesus about last days is being fulfilled that the wickedness is reaching its peak, like this man who identifies himself as Jesus the Son of God."

It is not wickedness to get associated with Jesus Christ and to have ones identity based on his name , instead it is an honor.

Coming on to prophecy of Biblical Jesus about end of times it is a big failure , acknowledged by biblical scholars themselves.

It is really strange that people are waiting for a failed prophecy to get fulfilled !!!

@Ali Klhan
You again have wrote a lot of thing, repeating yourself (quran style) yet again failing to explain why the article from Answreing-Islam is worse than the one from Islamic Awareness, it's interesting to see how your all knowing God and you a normal unprepared guy/woman, has the same wisdom.
BTW since you have been defending Jesus in your own wicked quran edition, would you tell us what "Messiah" means in Islam, what does the Quran or the "Relieable" hadiths explain about the word "Messiah", when you Muslims say Jesus is the Messiah what do you mean by that? we would love to know that, in case you don't know you can ask to islamic awareness they must know since they are so "academic" aren't they? but then again if the Quran fails telling yo what "Messiah" means, isn't that a clear contradiction with the Quran being "clear in detail" verse by verse in arabic tongue?
Have fun...

Cristo Te Ama said...

@Ali Khlan
Also you said "Coming on to prophecy of Biblical Jesus about end of times it is a big failure , acknowledged by biblical scholars themselves."
Would you quote us those "Biblical Schollars" and what they said, because Schollars say Muhammad never existed, so if i just use this argument, that would mean YOUR PROPHET NEVER EXISTED, yet if i want to defend that, i must quote them and write their arguments to defend such point. What we all see is that actually wickedness is getting to higher levels, i.e if we look at Muslims rejoicing in the unjustice against non muslims in Egypt, Syria, Lybia, Pakistan, the violence you put over everyone who doesn't believe in that what you believe even against another Muslims like the Shia, and the worst part is that you are so wicked now that you can't even see the evil inside as Osama Abdallah. But then again i wonder if Muslims have ever being different? maybe the wickedness is higher in this part of the world, and you are still in the same wickedness since the times of Muhammad...

@ ali khan,

It appears that you didn’t read any of the replies to your earlier post. How sad. We Christians always give the other person the benefit of the doubt even though we know how ridiculous the answer is going to be. You Mr. Ali Khan (I think you are from Pakistan) like a parrot keep repeating the same nonsense just as you keep repeating the Quran without any understanding every single day.

You state, “What can be expected from people whose basic believes the trinity , hypostatic union and penal substitution are at best INTELLECTUALLY BANKRUPT.”
Response: So are you saying that Mohammad was also INTELLECTUALLY BAKRUPT when he said that Christians and Jews will be substituted for Moslems on behalf of their sins. Book 037, Number 6668: Abu Burda reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: There would come people amongst the Muslims on the Day of Resurrection with as heavy sins as a mountain, and Allah would forgive them and He would place in their stead the Jews and the Christians.

You state: “They will automatically say and believe things as dubious and mind numbing .”
Response: What dubious and mind numbing thing has been said? If you can’t, it shows that you are intellectually bankrupt. You name me one mind numbing thing we believe in and I will show you a slew of mind numbing things from the Quran.

You state, “Just go and see the articles on Islamic awareness and compare with answering Islam .”
Response: What articles are you referring to? The ones that talk about stars are missiles that allah uses to shoot jinns? Or the article that explains that Quran allows adultery? Or the article that explains that liying is allowed in Islam? Which one?

You state, “See how academically enriched the articles are on Islamic awareness are and how hollow they are on answering Islam , repeating same things like a broken record.”
Respnse: What is your definition of “academically enriched”. Are you saying that they are better then Shakespeare writings? What do you know about academically enriched documents after reading the Quran? Is Quran the standard you are using to judge articles on answering islam? If it is, may, who ever you believe in, help you.

You state, “It is not wickedness to get associated with Jesus Christ and to have ones identity based on his name , instead it is an honor.”
Response: It appears that there are no boundaries of lying for you. Can you please tell me, who in the entire moslem world ever associated with the name Jesus? Where as every other moslem has the name Mohammad. Or I will even give you little more room, tell me any moslem who was born in a moslem family and given a Christian name let alone given the name Jesus Christ?

You state: “Coming on to prophecy of Biblical Jesus about end of times it is a big failure , acknowledged by biblical scholars themselves.”
Response: Which biblical scholar are you referring to? Can you please name one? Like a parrot, you are repeating the same things over and over again. I guess some of your madrassa habits have not left yet as you keep saying things with out providing any reference or proof. And then you have the audacity to say that we are academically bankrupt. How pathetic.

Hey Ali khan and fake jesus christ; what do you guy(s) have to say about johnnykzj??

aaron said...

@Ali Khan
regardless you lied to all of us which means your credibility is about as that of a thief that a police is interrogating. funny to see you sink to such low levels

aaron said...

hey every one I just got historical evidence against muslims claiming the council of nicea. look up the time of their prophet and look up when the council is held which means muslims will burn themselves pulling it out so it was not corrupted at council of nicea and shows muhummed had a imperfect understanding of the bible and torah

@ Ali

So are you telling us that God almighty is limited by your ability to comprehend? God has limitations? Well maybe your Allah does because he cannot have a son without a partner. By my God knows NO such limitations!

How could He have a son when He has no consort, and He (Himself) created everything, and He is the Knower of all things. S. 6:100-101 Shakir

How weak your Allah is. What a shame.

Herakleios, I tried proxy but it was very slow it took around 15 minutes to acces a page.

I am using Ben's link and it works now. Thanks Ben.

@Ali khan, Wow, a muslim calling christians intellectually bankrupt.
These are the same muslims who follow a prophet who said that water mixed with menstrual clothes and dead animals is still pure. Who believes that a fly has both the disease and the cure on wings.
Who believes that black cumin is a cure for all disease except death (note muhammad believed death to be a disease) bukhari 7:71:
591. Who believes that eating seven najwa dates every morning will not be affected by poison or magic. Ironically muhammad was poisoned and was afflicted by magic..

Wow, to believe all this crap is really mind numbing and dubious for a thinking person
