Muhammad: The Man and Myths of Islam

Debunking a Ridiculous Religion

Over the past five weeks, OneSource Ministries produced a short series exposing the myths of Islam.  This brief article is designed to encapsulate the highlights so anyone interested in further investigation may click on the relevant videos at the end for more information.

In short, Muhammad was either legitimately deceived or an outright liar and fraud, but either way, a thorough investigation into the religion of Islam reveals its inconsistencies and blatant lies.  Islam is a sham of a religion.

I know that’s a bold claim, and I wouldn’t be so intentionally derogatory if Islam wasn’t a direct attempt to both plagiarize and delegitimize Judaism and Christianity while trying to lend itself credibility by misappropriating their heritage.

Due to early rejection of his proclamations, Muhammad attempted to defend his revelations (the Qur’an) with a very bold claim.

Qur’an 10:37-38 (Sahih International) 37 And it was not [possible] for this Qur’an to be produced by other than Allah, but [it is] a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of the [former] Scripture, about which there is no doubt, from the Lord of the worlds. 38 Or do they say [about the Prophet], “He invented it?” Say, “Then bring forth a surah like it and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah, if you should be truthful.”

In the sűra above, the “prophet” Muhammad claimed the Qur’an is a “confirmation” and “detailed explanation” of the “former” scriptures, meaning the Hebrew and Christian scriptures.  Muhammad, in his own defense, claimed Allah told him to challenge his accusers to prove he’s incorrect.  The “need” for a new revelation is found in other sűras, as Muhammad claimed the Hebrew and Christian scriptures were corrupted.

Qur’an 2:76 (Sahih International) Do you covet [the hope, O believers], that they would believe for you while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah and then distort the Torah after they had understood it while they were knowing?

The reality is that the claims of Muhammad – and by default, Islam – regarding the distortion of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures were proven false by the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in the Judean Desert’s Qumran caves between 1947 and 1956, which predate the Qur’an.

Despite the repeated validation of Hebrew and Christian scriptures from those scrolls (and archeology), Muslims persist in promoting the lies.  For instance, Islam traces its monotheistic roots to Abraham and Ishmael, who Muhammad credited with establishing the Ka’bah in Mecca as the first place of worship for humanity.

Qu’ran 2:127-128 (Sahih International) 127 And [mention] when Abraham was raising the foundations of the House and [with him] Ishmael, [saying], “Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing. 128 Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.

Qur’an 3:95-97 (Sahih International) 95 Say, “Allah has told the truth. So follow the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of the polytheists.”  96 Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah – blessed and a guidance for the worlds.  97 In it are clear signs [such as] the standing place of Abraham. And whoever enters it shall be safe…

Although Muhammad claimed his lineage connects to Abraham through Ishmael, the Qur’an doesn’t mention any of Ishmael’s sons, which are described in the Bible as his twelve tribes.

Instead, Muhammad claimed Islam’s heritage of messengers and prophets directly from the lineage of Isaac, as detailed in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, with the exception of Moses’ father-in-law Jethro who was a Midianite (also known as Ishmaelites Genesis 37:25-28).

There’s a reason for the biblical record.  A quick study of the promises given to Abraham by the God of the Bible confirms the promises flow through Isaac, not Ishmael.

Genesis 17:15-16, 18-21 (ESV) 15  And God said to Abraham, “As for…Sarah… 16  I will bless her, and moreover, I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.”… 18  And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before you!” 19  God said, “No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him. 20  As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and multiply him greatly. He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. 21  But I will establish my covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this time next year.”

More to the point, the eternal promises of Jehovah God originally given to Abraham flow from Abraham to Isaac, Jacob (renamed Israel), Judah, David, Solomon (who built the Temple of God in Jerusalem), and ultimately fulfilled through Jesus.

Genesis 49:8-10 (ESV) 8  “Judah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons shall bow down before you. 9  Judah is a lion’s cub… 10  The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples…”

2 Chronicles 3:1 (ESV)  Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah…

1 Kings 8:1-11 (ESV) 1  Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel…to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion. … 6  Then the priests brought the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place…in the Most Holy Place, underneath the wings of the cherubim.  … 10  And when the priests came out of the Holy Place… 11  …the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.

Matthew 1:1 (ESV)  The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Matthew 5:17 (ESV)  “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

Revelation 5:5 (ESV)  And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”

Revelation 19:11, 16 (ESV) 11  Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. … 16  On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

There is zero room in the promises of Jehovah God for Muhammad and his false god Allah!

Nonetheless, Muhammad embraced the portions of Hebrew and Christian scripture that were convenient to bolster his message while disparaging the portions that prove his claims false.  For instance, Muhammad claimed Jesus is a messenger of Allah, yet not his son.

Qur’an 4:171 (Sahih International) O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, “Three”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son...

At the same time, Muhammad claimed Jesus was created by the command of Allah, as also confirmed by the narrative of the announcement of Jesus to His mother Mary.

Qur’an 19:16-22 (Sahih International) 16 And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Mary… 17 …We sent to her Our Angel… 18 She said, “Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah .” 19 He said, “I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.” 20  She said, “How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?” 21 He said, “Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.’ ” 22 So she conceived

According to sűra 19, Mary conceived Jesus at the command of Allah (just like sűra 4), meaning He is not the son of Mary’s husband Joseph.  That is why, against Middle Eastern tradition, Jesus is always mentioned as the son of Mary rather than using the traditional “bin” referring to His father (i.e. Osama bin Laden).

Muhammad admitted Jesus was miraculously conceived, yet He is not considered Allah’s son.  Why?

According to Muhammad, Jesus was simply a forerunner to Muhammad.

Qur’an 61:6 (Sahih International) And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

Jesus had to be diminished!  There is a consistent strain throughout the Qur’an, the Hadith, and all Muslim tradition: Muhammad is supreme among all messengers and prophets of Allah.  No one is superior to Muhammad, not even Moses, as proven by the tradition of Muhammad’s Isra (night journey to Jerusalem).

When I went (over the sixth heaven), there I saw Moses. … When I left him (i.e. Moses) he wept. Someone asked him, ‘What makes you weep?’ Moses said, ‘I weep because after me there has been sent (as Prophet) a young man whose followers will enter Paradise in greater numbers than my followers.’ …when I went (over the seventh heaven), there I saw Abraham.

(Sahih Bukhari – Volume 5, Book 58, Hadith 227)

Make no mistake: Muhammad was used by Satan to deceive the world into believing a lie.  Muhammad was Satan’s messenger, not God’s.  Jesus Christ is not a messenger of Allah.  Jesus is the fulfillment of every scriptural promise of Jehovah God because He is God.

John 1:1, 14 (ESV) 1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. … 14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 14:1, 6-7 (ESV)  “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. … 6  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7  If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

For Muhammad to deny the deity of Jesus or His Sonship is the very definition of antichrist.

1 John 2:18, 21-25 (ESV) 18  Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. … 21  I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth. 22  Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. 23  No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also. 24  Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you too will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25  And this is the promise that he made to us—eternal life.

As John warned, the spirit of antichrist is already in the world today, and the kingdom of antichrist foretold in the book of Revelation will be a revived Islamic Caliphate.

  1. Thanks again for such an informative article. I have watched the videos and was surprised by the background of the Muslim faith. I wonder how many Muslims have traced their roots or read their sacred writings. If they looked at their religion with open eyes, they would have many questions. Muslims are not the only ones deceived by not reading or tracing their religious beliefs. There are many so called “Christians” who follow false teachers. They do not read the Bible and do not know that false teachers are leading them astray, from God. Ignorance of God’s commands is not an excuse when facing eternity before Jehovah God. Time is short!

    1. WHAT A STUBBORNNESS OVER A RELIGION THAT HAS BEEN CHANGED ACCORDING TO ONE’S DESIRES.TALKING ABOUT CHRISTIANITY…

      1. Ahmed, I sincerely appreciate the time you have invested in responding here and on Facebook. I hope you invest even more time reading the article and watching each video. I wrote the article and produced the videos to show that it was Muhammad who tried to distort the truth of God’s word, which was verified as accurate by the Dead Sea Scrolls 1,300 years after Muhammad and the Qur’an. Muslim tradition shows Muhammad was illiterate. He couldn’t even read, yet he was supposed to be the messenger to tell others that the true scriptures were incorrect? His messenger was not Gabriel of the Bible. It was Satan in disguise. Muhammad was deceived and so are you. I pray you find the truth before it’s too late.

        1. Save Gaffney it alway makes me feel happy when a man of other religion writes against Islam or the Prophet of Islam, thinking that he is Mr Right n have all the knowledge regarding his point of view.
          I was grown up among Christians n the funny thing is that I did not understood Islam in Pakistan while I was studi g in a Christian school but it was America where I learned abt Islam.
          Now coming to ur points where u try ur level best to show Islam as a religion of Satan, to u it can be as it is a famous saying that u c the world with ur eyes so if 1 is a follower of Satan to him every will be a follower of Satan.
          Dave I am from the lost tribes of Israel n have study the old n new testaments.
          All u said is right but tryi g to hide the truth. Religion was given to the children of Isacc for that certain area n the last n final Prophet was also promised to them but what happen n how all that changed n the favour was taken away from them, u forget to qoute that.
          In old testament God said to Moses to tell them that the favour was taken away from them n is given to their brethens, now Dave who are the brethens of Jews of cause the Arabs, the children of Ishmael.
          So Dave the final words cannot be given to children of Israel.
          Again it is said that the final word will be given to the 1 who could not read or write.
          Dave I am not here to convert u but for sure I can clearly tell u that u are following Satan n God of urs is a very weak God, who at 1 place can do anything by saying To Be n create Adam from nothing but when it comes to Jesus then He is a weak God as He needed a woman to have sex to give birth to Jesus.
          Dave Jesus came for the house of Israel not for others n u r not from the house of Israel n u follow Paul who saw a dream to spread the word of Lord now can’t that dream be from Satan.
          Paul matches the religion of Christianity with Roman beliefs n was easy to spread in that time western world.
          Dave what is 25th Dec.
          What is easter
          What is 3 I to 1
          What is 1 I to 3.
          Dave I can keep on writing but I can not make u understand n will pray to Allah to guide u to the truth.
          Read my words u r not following Jesus but u are following Paul a tax collector n a proven lair in history.
          U do not need Muslims to tell u that Bible has been changed as u have thousand of Christians telling u that.
          As Quran tell us that u have ur religion n I have mine.
          Salaam
          Peace be upon i

          1. Again, Saeed, thank you for your comments. As indicated in my previous response, I will address your comments one at a time. But, first, I would respectfully submit that if you are going to mention scripture, you really should quote it with its reference.

            God never revoked His blessing or promises from the Jews permanently. As any father gets angry and disciplines his children, so does God. We were made in His image. The Bible is clear that His anger toward His children, the Jews, was always temporary. He provided His initial covenants through Abraham, Isaac (not Ishmael), and Jacob (renamed Israel).

            Genesis 35:10-12 (ESV) And God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; no longer shall your name be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name.” So he called his name Israel. And God said to him, “I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply. A nation and a company of nations shall come from you, and kings shall come from your own body. The land that I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you, and I will give the land to your offspring after you.”

            That is why all the land in dispute in Israel and Palestine belongs to the Jews, as even Muhammad confirmed in the Qur’an.

            Qur’an 5:20-21 (Sahih International – https://quran.com/5/20-30) And [mention, O Muhammad], when Moses said to his people, “O my people, remember the favor of Allah upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds. O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back [from fighting in Allah ‘s cause] and [thus] become losers.”

            But, back to the main point, God may have been angry for a moment, but His promises to the Jews are eternal, as confirmed to the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah.

            Isaiah 54:7-8 (ESV) For a brief moment I deserted you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the LORD, your Redeemer.

            Jeremiah 31:1, 3, 31-33 (ESV) “At that time, declares the LORD, I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they shall be my people.” … I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. … “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the LORD. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

            The new covenant God promised was fulfilled after Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead and the Holy Spirit indwelt every new believer, which still happens today. Before Jesus was crucified, He indicated the Spirit was with His disciples, but that it would be in them.

            John 14:15-20 (ESV) “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.”

            After His death and resurrection, He fulfilled His promise by giving them the Holy Spirit.

            John 20:19-22 (ESV) On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

            Today, the Holy Spirit indwells new believers, so God’s law – His very presence – is within them…written on their hearts, as Jeremiah foretold.

            As for December 25th, I agree 100%. Jesus was born in the spring, in line with the Jewish Spring festivals. He will return in the Fall, in line with the Jewish Fall festivals.

        2. Dave kindly do a bit more homework as KABBA WAS BUILT BY ADAM FOR THE FIRST TIME.,
          Jesus was not a Christian but a Jewish by faith.
          Islam came to this world by the first man Adam.
          Dave u r not from the house of Israel as u are out aider n Jesus came for the house of Israel
          Ur religion is not the beliefs of jesus but of Paul, a result of a dream claiming that he saw jesus but in fact was Satan who guided him n all he had to do was to change the names as Roman already had the religion of 3 into 1 n 1 into 3 God’s. Easy way to spread call Jim, Jack.
          Sun God was given the name of God
          The son of the sun God was given the name as jesus
          N the middle 1 was called the holy.
          Dave don’t take the name of Jesus as u are from the beliefs of Mr Paul

          1. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, Saeed. It is for people like you that I have a burden to reach the people of Islam. Have you read the entire Qur’an and Hadith? Have you read the whole Bible? If you have, I’m amazed you can maintain the positions you do in both comments. So, I will address your comments one at a time from the relevant sources.

            First, your own Qur’an states Abraham first built the Ka’bah with Ishmael (2:127-128 above), not Adam. But, if you do your own homework, the Ka’bah was a polytheistic shrine maintained by Muhammad’s Qurayshi people prior to the invention of Islam, which is why the Qur’an and Hadith make frequent mention of the polytheists. Opposition from his polytheistic people and resistance to the message of Islam is why Muhammad left Mecca for Medina and didn’t return until he was able to build an army strong enough to overtake Mecca by force. So, when Muhammad mentions polytheism and Allah having no partners (even though the Qur’an very frequently quotes Allah saying “We” and Us”), he’s not just talking about Christians, he’s talking about the gods polluting the Ka’bah and his own family’s polytheistic heritage, but that does lead me to point number two.

            Second, the triune Godhead is not based on Roman religions or traditions adopted by Christianity through the writings of Paul. It’s evident in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.

            The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament: 1 Samuel 16:13 (ESV) … And the Spirit of the LORD rushed upon David from that day forward. …

            God the Father speaking to God the Son in the Old Testament: Psalm 110:1 (ESV) The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”

            Jesus speaking of the triune Godhead in the New Testament: Matthew 28:17-20 (ESV) And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

            I know these passages won’t comport with what you’ve been brainwashed to believe because you have been taught those scriptures have been corrupted. That is why the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls between 1947 and 1956 is so important and powerful. The scrolls contain both Hebrew and Christian scriptures predating the Qur’an, confirming the accuracy of the Old and New Testament. Muhammad claimed the Hebrew and Christian scriptures were corrupt, but he was unable to read. He relied on the word of a “messenger” to “reveal” what he claimed to be the truth. Unfortunately, he initially thought that messenger was an evil spirit and that he was demon possessed. In relaying a portion of that tradition, Sahih Bukhari (Book 1, Hadith 3 – https://bit.ly/2I2Qpph – also below) even calls the period before Muhammad Preislamic, so how could Adam (or Abraham) have been Muslims?

            Sahih Bukhari Book 1, Hadith 3: … The angel came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet ﷺ replied, “I do not know how to read.” … Then he went to Khadija bint Khuwailid and said, “Cover me! Cover me!” They covered him till his fear was over and after that he told her everything that had happened and said, “I fear that something may happen to me.” … Khadija then accompanied him to her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin ‘Abdul ‘Uzza, who, during the PreIslamic Period became a Christian and used to write the writing with Hebrew letters.

    2. It breaks my heart, Grace. The responses I have received from the boosted post on Facebook show how deep the deception is. Muslims genuinely believe Jews and Christians are the ones deceived, all based on the lies of a deceived and deluded false prophet. My continued prayer is that the message in this article and the videos will reach those who are genuinely seeking the TRUTH. That is why I produced it all, and that is why I felt so compelled to be so direct in this article. Sometimes, soft-peddling doesn’t work and needs to be replaced with brutal honesty to shake people awake. Muslims often claim blasphemy if a Christian disparages Muhammad or Allah or desecrates a Qur’an, but they have committed the ultimate blasphemy by denying the deity of Jesus Christ and claiming the superiority of a false god.

      1. Satan is a liar, deceiver and a thief. He has deceived the Muslims and they are unaware of it. I too am praying for their salvation.

  2. what a wonderful piece of historical fact.
    Frankly speaking, Islam is a religion founded on lies plus hatred and that is why it’s fragmenting into three groups nowadays.
    1- Political Islam which is being propagated by some radical political leaders.
    2- Islamic Extremism under the notorious armed militia groups.
    3-The so-called Moderate Islam which is being spearheaded by the most wealthiest Kings in Arab World.

    In this regard,Islamic religion is been misinterpreted by the said groups above to only serve their interests and suppress any dissenting voice against them whether be it political Islam, Extremism or Moderate Islam.

    Therefore, I would conclude that Islam is a religion founded by Mohammad as an encounter to Christianity .

    1. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, Akot. I truly appreciate your time. Yes, Islam is fractured, which fits the description found in Daniel 2 referring to the succession of world kingdoms after Nebuchadnezzar, but specifically, the kingdom to precede the eternal kingdom established by God.

      Daniel 2:43-45 (ESV) As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.”

      Luke 1:30-33 (ESV) And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”

        1. Thanks for joining the conversation, Riyaz. Unfortunately, anyone can make a bad decision if they are deceived. There are four glaring problems with Muhammad’s deception, and all four explain the need to claim the Hebrew and Christian scriptures were corrupt.

          Problem 1: The story of Ishmael’s relationship with Abraham indicates he was sent away with his mother Hagar when he was in his mid-teens and had nothing to do with the promises of God that flowed through Isaac and Jacob, who God renamed Israel. The story of Ishmael’s conception and birth is found in Genesis 16 (https://bit.ly/1P6WA7w). Jehovah God’s clear instruction that His promise to Abraham would be confirmed through Isaac is found in Genesis 17 (https://bit.ly/1O8uxaO). The story of Isaac’s birth and the rejection of Ishmael is found in Genesis 21:1-21 (https://bit.ly/2WrHGBf). The story of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice Isaac – not Ishmael – is found in Genesis 22 (https://bit.ly/2L5NjjE). The story of Abraham’s death, confirmation Ishmael did not live with Abraham and Isaac, and a list of Ishmael’s descendants is found in Genesis 25:1-18 (https://bit.ly/31oIBWQ), which leads directly to problems two and three.

          Genesis 25:5-6 (KJV) 5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac. 6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

          Problem 2: The Tomb of the Patriarchs that was recently named a Palestinian world heritage site by UNESCO (https://bit.ly/2wJvJfM) contains the remains of Abraham and his wife Sarah (Isaac’s mother), Isaac and his wife Rebekah, and Jacob/Israel and his wife Leah, but it does not contain the remains of Ishmael. The story of Sarah’s death and burial, along with the purchase of the family burial cave, is found in Genesis 23 (https://bit.ly/2K93j7D). Abraham’s death and burial is found in Genesis 25:1-18, as indicated above. Isaac’s and death is found in Genesis 35:16-29 (https://bit.ly/2F2XmVr). Jacob’s death and burial, along with confirmation of who is buried in the Tomb of the Patriarchs is found in Genesis 49:28-33 (https://bit.ly/2KPLtpV). Ishmael is not among them.

          Genesis 49:28-33 (KJV) 28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them. 29 And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, 30 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace. 31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah. 32 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth. 33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.

          Problem 3: All the messengers and prophets of Islam are from the lineage and promises of Jehovah God that flow through Isaac, Jacob/Israel, and ultimately fulfilled by Jesus, as indicated in the article above. Although mentioned in the Bible, Ishmael’s descendants aren’t mentioned in the Qur’an. The history of the Jews and the promises of Jehovah God include the establishment of His temple in Jerusalem (not the Ka’bah in Mecca), the place where His holy presence dwelt, which was built by Solomon, as indicated in the article above.

          These first three problems are compounded by the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls (https://bit.ly/2apfyII) in the Qumran Caves of the Judean Desert between 1947 and 1956. The scrolls they discovered contained fragments (or even entire books) of every book in the Hebrew scriptures except the book of Esther (https://bit.ly/2JcuBFt). Among the discoveries, they were able to recover Genesis 17:18-19.

          Genesis 17:18-19 (KJV) 18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! 19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

          The Septuagint Bible (https://bit.ly/2HW5xXC) containing all the Hebrew scriptures was already in its current form more than 200 years before Jesus walked the earth. Those scriptures were confirmed by the Dead Sea Scrolls more than 1300 years after Muhammad died. They predate and postdate Muhammad, and have been proven accurate. Whether you believe their contents is up to you, but it’s hard to discredit them since Islam bases its entire heritage of prophets on its contents, yet those promises center on Jerusalem. In fact, Jehovah God selected Judah and Jerusalem as His own inheritance.

          Zechariah 2:10-12 (KJV) 10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.

          Problem 4: Jesus. Islam claims to embrace Jesus, but it’s a perverted version of Jesus invented by Muhammad and Gibril. There is no doubt Jesus lived, and there is also no doubt He changed the world. Every major religion embraces Him as a wise man and prophet. Why? What was so significant about Him, and how can every major religion make claim to Him if they all claim different things about Him? The real story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, along with the Apostolic letters, is only found in the Christian scriptures, which were compiled in their current form at least 200 years before Muhammad was born (https://bit.ly/2K9cuF7). And, in addition to the Dead Sea Scrolls, other discoveries have been made and copies remain of both the Hebrew scriptures and Christian scriptures (https://bit.ly/2IuLixi), and they both predate and postdate Muhammad. So, here is the problem for Islam with the real Jesus and the proven validity of the text of the Christian scriptures: The 27 books of the New Testament describe Jesus as the Son of God – God in the flesh, who died for the forgiveness of sins for anyone who would believe, and rose from the dead to conquer death and offer His followers eternal life. It also describes Him returning to reward His followers, establish His eternal kingdom in Jerusalem, and punish the works of Satan and all unrepentant sinners.

          Luke 1:30-33 (KJV) 30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

          John 1:1-18 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 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: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

          John 3:12-21 (KJV) 12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

          Colossians 1:12-22 (KJV) 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

          Philippians 2:5-11 (KJV) 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

          Acts 1:6-11 (KJV) 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

          Acts 2:1-4 (KJV) 1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

          Revelation 19:11-16 (KJV) 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

          Revelation 21:1-3 (KJV) 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

          You see, Muhammad and Gibril had to claim the Hebrew and Christian scriptures were corrupt. Otherwise, they would prove Muhammad and the newly minted religion of Islam was a lie. Without the Hebrew scriptures, Islam falls apart, yet reading them carefully also makes Islam fall apart. There is so much more I could reveal, but if you cannot believe the truth already presented, no additional evidence will change your mind. My prayer is that you are receptive to the truth.

  3. Dave, you read a lot and thus you got to the point of your disagreement. The answers you are looking for out of the conflicts you assumed, i hope you will get them soon as you re-read them. Maybe you by all your intention will convert to Muslim as you have researched this far. Even, i myself borne in a Muslim family haven’t researched this much. This is shameful for me, sad but true. But i always found my answers whenever i was in doubt and set off to look for it, and i believe LORD will bless you and you too will receive yours.
    Good luck man!!

    1. Thanks for joining the conversation, Ping. Although I appreciate your intent, I have already found the truth. Once you have researched as much as I have into your own religion, my prayer is that you will finally find the truth, as well. Jesus is not a prophet of Allah. He is the only Son of Jehovah God, and He wants you to realize Who He is so you can receive the gift of eternal life.
