What Is Islam?

There are several ways to answer the question "What is Islam?" In the following video, I discuss basic statistics on Islam, the role it plays in the lives of Muslims, and the beliefs and practices it is composed of.


Taking all sects into account, Islam is the world’s second largest religion (after Christianity) with more than 1.6 billion adherents worldwide. Islam is the majority religion in 49 countries, the largest being Indonesia. According to many sources, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world.

The term Islam means “submission” (or “surrender”). The submission emphasized by Islam is submission to Allah, the god of Islam. A follower of Islam is called a “Muslim” (“one who submits”). A Muslim submits to Allah by obeying Allah’s commands in the Qur’an (believed by Muslims to be the literal word of Allah), along with the teachings of Muhammad (Islam’s prophet) contained in the Hadith (collections of stories about Muhammad).

Essential Islamic doctrines are outlined in the Six Articles of Faith, which include belief in Muhammad’s teachings concerning (1) Allah, (2) angels and other spirit beings, (3) prophets, (4) scriptures, (5) the Day of Judgment, and (6) predestination. Core Muslim practices are listed in the Five Pillars of Islam and consist of (1) reciting the Islamic Creed, (2) performing prescribed Islamic prayers, (3) giving alms in accordance with Muhammad’s teachings, (4) fasting during the Month of Ramadan, and (5) taking the pilgrimage to Mecca.

great video. how do muslim apologist respond to the source criticism of the Quran, which blatantly derived from apocryphal gnostic gospels, fictional Talmud writings and folktales?

Another excellent and scholarly delivery from David once again. All you guys are firebrand! God bless.
NB: Osama needs our prayers, I believe he will abandon islam very soon in Jesus' name -Amen.

Dr. Wood and Dr. Logic,

IF Christ, your supposed Creator, didn't speak when he was a baby, then are you saying that he was dumb (in babies' terms) when he was born? In other words, are you saying that he had to be TAUGHT THE LANGUAGE, AND TAUGHT how to speak and write?

And as to Islam's Religious Rituals, why can't these be remnants of Divine Truth? Take the going around the Kaaba 7 times example. The Jews went around the Jerusalem and the temple also 7 times.

My point is, why can't the Islamic Rituals be indeed from GOD Almighty?

The very fact you have to ask 'why' is the reason.

The law is a reflection of God. His character, his expectations, his desires. It's easy to circle around a building seven times. It's easy to do sharia according to some muslims and even required for peace.
But these are human elements, not divine.

What's not easy is to look at the law and know you can't measure up.

Don't believe me. Go read the sermon on the Mount for yourself. Christ sums it up then and there.

Royal Son said...

Islam is built upon the 5 pillars as per Sahih Bukhari Volume 1 Book 2 Number 7.

Logically then, it cannot exist in the future, because its pillars are done away with:

Pillar 1: Shahada - Muhammad no longer occupies the office of messenger in paradise.

Pillar 2: Salaah - Muslims praying Surah al Fatihah - "Oh Allah, guide us on the straight path" in paradise?

Pillar 3: Zakat - Muslims paying the poor tax in paradise?

Pillar 4: Hajj - Muslims leaving paradise to make pilgrimage to Mecca?

Pillar 5: Sawm - Muslims fasting in paradise during the month of Ramadan?

Quite obviously, the pillars would turn paradise into a place of absurdity, poverty, and confusion.

Since the only rational explanation, is that the pillars will no longer remain, it means that the very foundation upon which Islam is built, collapses. Islam therefore itself will by logical necessity, cease to exist in eternity future.

Oh the irony of ironies. That which is haram (72 virgins and rivers of wine) become Halal in paradise. And that which is considered most halal (Islam itself) is completely absent!

I am uploading your debate with Osama Abdullah on the Miracles of the Quran.

I have edited out almost 3 hours of Osama's goofyness, but I could not get rid of the captions he put in. If anyone has any idea how to remove captions using Camstasia let me know.

Anyway the video is uploading to youtube and will take some time to processes. But here is the Link when it is ready in a few hours.

Think of it this way: a new software will not function properly on an old processor until you enhance it. Here on earth, the God Jesus (software) was contingent upon the corporeal Jesus (processor) which is a creation.

SHAH ALAM said...

Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was not the founder of Islam. Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) didn't brought the new Religion. As a Muslim (One who surrender to Almighty God) we follow the same religion which was followed by previous Prophets. I follow the same religion which was followed Jesus (Pbuh). Jesus (Pbuh) believed in Almighty God, He worshiped Almighty God and said others to do the same. Jesus (Pbuh) was a Perfect Muslim. Islam was in existence even before the creation of Human being. Islam is the Religion of The Earth, the moon, the sun, etc as the follow the commandments of Almighty God. Please revert to Islam. May Allah give you Guidance

George Igler said...

Very refreshing indeed!

Osama Abdallah said...

And when Christ was taught how to speak when he was a baby, did he call MARY "me me"? You know how kids butcher in their own innocent and very-very-cute ways the names of people, and words in general.

I am just wondering here how the supposed Creator of the Universe grew up on this earth! Do you see just how crazy your logic and faith sound?

Osama Abdallah said...

And was baby Jesus, the supposed Creator of the Universe, spanked? Grounded for being a bad boy? Disciplined? Or was he filled with the Holy Spirit, as the Holy Quran Says, from the and began to speak Injil (that Quran that was sent to him) from the beginning?

At least Islam's claims make a lot more sense!

REPLY:
1. How do you know Jesus worshipped God?
2. How do you know Jesus and the other prophets practiced Islam?
3. Muhammad IS the founder of Islam. Take him out and Islam vanishes!


SHAH ALAM:
Jesus (Pbuh) was a Perfect Muslim.

REPLY:
If Jesus was the perfect Muslim, Muhammad wasn’t! Jesus submitted to God completely and never sinned. As you know sin is rebellion against/disobedience to God. Muhammad did sin and had to be forgiven for his sins. Therefore, why do you follow Muhammad when Jesus is the better example.

By the way. Allah hates perfect Muslims according to your prophet:

Abu Sirma reported that when the time of the death of Abu Ayyub Ansari drew near, he said: I used to conceal from you a thing which I heard from Allah's Messenger and I heard Allah's Messenger as saying: Had you not committed sins, Allah would have brought into existence a creation that would have committed sin (and Allah) would have forgiven them. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037, Number 6620)

Abu Ayyub Ansari reported that Allah's Messenger said: If you were not to commit sins, Allah would have swept you out of existence and would have replaced you by another people who have committed sin, and then asked forgiveness from Allah, and He would have granted them pardon. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037, Number 6621)

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger having said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, Allah would sweep you out of existence and He would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and He would have pardoned them. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037, Number 6622)


So why do you strive to obey Allah all the time? Allah takes pleasure in your sins. Once you stop sinning, Allah destroys you.

A Few Simple Questions for Muslim Visitors

Richard said...

Today is the day America celebrates Freedom. But while it does so the flames of freedom are flickering and being extinguished in the western world.

America the last bastion of freedom and the hope of Europe, is being led by a traitor who is supported by an ignorant and uneducated section of the public, while under attack from a vile and implacable enemy of freedom - Islam.

Thomas Jefferson wrote "liberty can never be safe but in the hands of the people themselves, AND THAT TOO OF THE PEOPLE WITH A CERTAIN DEGREE OF INSTRUCTION. "

No longer is that instruction being given to us, or to our children.

Instead we are being fed with a monstrous lie.

The lie that Islam is a peaceful religion that promotes equality and justice, instead of the truth - that Islam is a totalitarian ideology, that preaches violence, discrimination and violence against women and non-believers, silences criticism and dissent with violence and intimidation, and mandates its spread through violence and deceit, through its indoctrinated cohorts.

Thomas Jefferson wrote “ truth is great and will prevail if left to herself; that she .. has nothing to fear .. unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate ; errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them.”

Today truth is disarmed by human intervention of her natural weapons of free argument and debate.

We are not permitted to challenge the lie of Islam. When we tell the truth about Islam we are accused of the trumped up charge of “Islamophobia” and labelled as racists and bigots by the followers of this racist and bigoted ideology and their ignorant and unthinking supporters.

Our newspapers publish only the lie of Islam and deny any criticism of it to be published.

The lie of Islam thus has become most dangerous, as we are not permitted freely to contradict it.

With every terror attack by Islamic Jihadists, muslims, our compliant press and our spineless and compliant leaders, deny victimhood to the slaughtered victims of Jihad and instead accord it to Islam and Muslims, while it is used as an excuse by Muslims to find creative ways to blame non-Muslims for the atrocities of the killers.

Today is the day America celebrates freedom at a time when freedom is under attack by a vile and implacable foe – Islam.

The newly born nation of America was also under attack by Islam after its birth.

Let us remember the words of one of America’s most illustrious founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson:

“We took the liberty to make some enquiries concerning the ground of their pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. The Ambassador [of Tripoli] answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority WERE SINNERS, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.

This is the truth of Islam. This was true during the time of Thomas Jefferson, it was true during the time of Muhammad, the Crusades, the fall of Constantinople, and today.

This is the truth that is denied by our press and our leaders and instead they feed us with the monstrous Islamic lie.

Truth has been, by human interposition, disarmed of her natural weapons - free argument and debate.

Yet we will fight for freedom and against tyranny and slavery and we will win, because truth always wins in the end.

ICA said...

Nakdimon, "Muhammad IS the founder of Islam. Take him out and Islam vanishes!"

Quoted for truth. This reminds me of Revelation 13:18, which says “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count ['psēphizō' - reckon] the number ['arithmos'] of the beast: for it is the number ['arithmos'] of a man; and his number ['arithmos'] is 'χξς'”

Biblically speaking, the “number” (arithmos) of the Beast does not necessitate the use of mathematics or gammatria to “reckon” what it is, as many Bible prophecy teachers have often assumed. The reason for this is simple. The word “arithmos” is used a total of 18 times in the New Testament, and aside from Revelation 5:11 when John is referring to the number of angels around the throne of God, every other time “arithmos” is used it is always referring to a group of people. This therefore suggests that the understanding intended by John is again referring us to a specific group of people, as in “the multitude of the beast: for it is the multitude of a man.” But what man would that be and who are the people associated with him? First, there is absolutely nothing in the text telling us that the man who John was referring to must be someone alive at that specific time of the end, another assumption often espoused by many teachers. Second, the Greek word “χξς” (chi-xi-stigma) — which is often translated as “666″ — is nearly identical to the Arabic Bismallah, which means “In The Name Of Allah”. Thirdly, of significance is the fact that in order to convert to “Allah’s religion” one must recite the Islamic creed, called the Shahada, by declaring that “There is no god but Allah, and MOHAMMED is his messenger.” Without Christ, there can be no Christianity. Likewise, without Mohammed, there can be no Islam. Thus, if one does not acknowledge the man Mohammed, they cannot become a Muslim and will not be counted as part of his number, the people of Islam called the Ummah. In this light, it therefore only stands to reason that “the number (multitude) of a man” is not referring to an eschatonic Antichrist, but rather to Mohammed — the founder and (false) prophet of Islam — whose teachings even today continues to force all those under Islamic rule to worship Allah — the god of Islam — who should otherwise be killed if they refuse.

Oso,

Very normal growth. What's so strange about it?

"And was baby Jesus, the supposed Creator of the Universe, spanked? Grounded for being a bad boy? Disciplined?"

Why do you take the two extremes? Neither He had to be disciplined nor did He act like a 30 year old. You must have had a rough childhood. You can't conceive of someone growing up without being beaten up by his parents.

"Or was he filled with the Holy Spirit, as the Holy Quran Says, from the and began to speak Injil (that Quran that was sent to him) from the beginning?"

Think about it: Jesus was born of a virgin. He was the “word” of God and from the “spirit” of God. No one harmed him. He is still alive and eventually he will return to judge the earth. Yet Muhammad, the seal of the prophets, had none of those privileges. It sounds strange doesn't it?

"At least Islam's claims make a lot more sense!"

I'm not sure whether Islam renders its adherents qualified to determine what makes sense or not. I wonder why Muslims are lagging behind the Kuffars in virtually every field.

BM200032 said...

It's ironic that the Quran claims to be clear, and detailed, yet hardly any major muslim beliefs come out of it, even the details of muhammeds life are totally obscure and one can not even begin to become a muslim through reading the quran, the quran is a total literary mess.

The quran is not even in order, yet muslims want us to think it's inerrant? what kind of logic is that?

The only things about islam we can learn from the quran are follows:

Theres this god named allah
he has a prophet named moe
the earth is flat

the sun revolves around the earth

a totally messed up view of embryology ( in line with what was believed at the time, and totally in disagreement with modern science)

Stars soot down genies who try to listen in on allah and fly back through space to tell soothesayers

and allah surprisingly changed his mind quickly about fighting in the sacred months when it was learned how muhammed could profit from it.... a little suspicious, me thinks.

Honestly, to be a muslim you have to have the intellectual capacity of an ant.

And that reminds me, according to the quran, ants speak, they where even able to identify Solomon and his army, quite amazing

the list of absurdities goes on and on and it's just plain embarrassing, I honestly don't see why muslims are drawn to this dark aged mythology, the quran isn't even coherent or consistent with itself, much less the world at large and principals of science and logic.

Look also at the speech of Solomon in the Kings and the Chronicles, in which he dedicates his temple.
Who indeed is without sin?
The question is not literal, but rhetorical.
This great king understood human frailty and the need for divine forgiveness.

But, but... David, you didn't say a thing about 'Shai-Hulud' or 'the spice' or the Mahdi (Imam Paul Atreides).

HOW can there be an Islam without 'the Maker' (Mohammed, the big mouth worm) or 'the Water of Life' (camel urine) or the 'Spacing Guild Navigators' (western dhimmis like Dhimmi Carter)?

And, David, would you please tell us all - once and for all - is it you or is it Sam who is the 'Kwisatz Haderach'?

So it is true. Islam is really just a shaky façade cobbled together from bits and pieces of old pagan superstitions, lies, fables, assorted abominations, blasphemies, and pieces of the Law and Gospel mixed together in confusion. Behind this façade find the devil there laughing up his sleeve.

Arrow said...

Hello Deleting,

I forgot to mention that the Qur'an furthermore admits that, unlike Muhammad, Jesus was sinless and performed miracles.

“you said no one harmed him. Can you expound on why you said that”

Muhammad suffered an agonizing death because a Jewish woman poisoned him (see David's video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6st_tFj6ouM). By contrast, Jesus evaded crucifixion because Allah took him away and replaced him with a double.

So the question is, why the favoritism on the part of Allah? Isn't Muhammad supposed to be the final messenger whom everyone should eventually follow? And why is Jesus mentioned much more than Muhammad in the Qur'an?

It doesn't make sense (unless if you're an Osama). It does, however, if the authors of the Qur'an drew and translated materials from Christian sources (see “Did Muhammad exist?” by Robert Spencer).

"And as to Islam's Religious Rituals, why can't these be remnants of Divine Truth? Take the going around the Kaaba 7 times example. The Jews went around the Jerusalem and the temple also 7 times"
hi Osama, where did you read in the bible that the jews" went around Jerusalem or the temple 7 times. you go on to say "My point is, why can't the Islamic Rituals be indeed from GOD Almighty?" one among many reason is that the God of the bible is not the same as the God of the quran. what God declares to be an ABOMINATION in the bible is declared to be His revelation in the quran.
Malachi 3:6
“For I am the Lord, I do not change" yet we see that Mohammed received revelations that were abominable to the God of the bible.

Ezekiel 8.15 Then He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn again, you will see greater abominations than these.” 16 So He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east

Sahih bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 13 :Narrated by Al-Bara The Prophet prayed facing Bait-ulMaqdis (i.e. Jerusalem) for sixteen or seventeen months but he wished that his Qibla would be the Ka'ba (at Mecca). (So Allah Revealed (2.144) and he offered 'Asr prayers(in his Mosque facing Ka'ba at Mecca) and some people prayed with him.

there are so many other abominable practises that were revealed to Muhammad. please Osama do not put your faith in 1 man who initially thought he was demon possessed, and went onto contradict ALL of the previous prophets sent to the nation of Israel

bob said...

Islam is full of abominations and blasphemies, but overall, the greatest abomination and personal affront to God that Islam represents is its denial of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. E.g. verse 4:157 in the Koran says:

They said “We killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger.” But they did not kill him or crucify him, although it appeared so to them [the person crucified was not Jesus but a “double”]. And those who argued about it were in doubt concerning him. They had no clear knowledge about him and only went with opinion. They did not really kill him, but Allah lifted him up to himself.

In denying the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, the Koran is criticising God’s sovereign right to restore his name, honour and glory which have been profaned by our sins.

“Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned.” Ezekiel 36:22

Any doctrine that downplays or removes sin and redemption from the heart of the gospel is defiling the name and honour of God.

“It is not for your sake that I will act, says the Lord GOD; let that be known to you” Ezekiel 36:32

God is redeeming us in order to restore the honour and glory that is due to him, and which we have defiled through our sin. When we sin we do far more than just condemn ourselves to death. When we sin, we dishonour God, and not only do we dishonour God, but we defile his creation. When we sin, not only do we go down, but we bring God’s name down with us.
But when God redeems us, he not only redeems us but he also redeems his own honour and name and the whole creation along with us (Rom. 8: 18– 21; Rev. 21: 1– 5).

When God fulfils his word (the promise of salvation)...

“So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11

...his honour is vindicated and his name is glorified.

But there are passages in the Koran that go against God’s plan for the salvation of his creation from sin and death (John 3:16; Hebrews 9:22 ‘…without the shedding of blood there is no remission.’ ‘…of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.’ Revelation 13:8)

Surely they are kafirs who say, “Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary.” 5:17

People of the Book [Christians]! Do not overstep the boundaries of your religion and speak only what is true about Allah. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, is only Allah’s messenger and his Word which he sent into Mary was a spirit from him. Therefore, believe in Allah and his messengers and do not say, “Trinity.” Hold back and it will be better for you. Allah is only one god. Far be it from Allah to have a son! All the heavens and earth are His. Allah is the sufficient as a protector. The Messiah does not condescend to be Allah’s servant, nor do his favoured angels. Those who disdain service to Him, are filled with arrogance, Allah will gather them all together before Him. 4:171

And the Jews say: “Ezra is the son of Allah” [this tradition is unknown in the Old Testament]; and the Christians say: “The Messiah is the son of Allah.” Such are the in their mouths, but they resemble the sayings of the kafirs of old. Allah destroy them. How they are deluded from the truth! 9:30

They surely blaspheme who say, Allah is the third of the three [The trinity], for there is no god except one Allah, and if they do not refrain from what they say, a grievous penalty will fall on those who disbelieve. 5:72

In light of the above, who else could be the author of the Koran but the devil himself?

Tom ta tum Tom said...

@Bob, (Ezekiel 36:22 & other) that will PREACH, Mister!

His Name, His ESSENCE, His Character, His Persona is what we seek to have IN US and ON US when we pray IN HIS NAME! That Name is HOLY.

At the same time we're praying, we're seeking transformation!! There can be NO COHABITATION between His Perfection and our worthlessness.

Only the Blood of Jesus (His Essence, His Persona, His Life, His BEING) can make it possible for us to be in right relationship with the ONLY Holy & Living God. WOW!

Islam HATES relationship with The One Holy and Eternal God! Being submitted in adoration and love for the Only Living God - PRICELESS!

Being submitted to a pagan Beelzebub like Allahu Ohynksmorr - WORTHLESS & HOPELESS!

DAVID GRAY said...

David, what is the reason that you still refer Islam to being a religion? I have come to the decision that Islam is not a religion. It is my honest opinion that Islam is an evil ideology with a facade of religious overtones.
