A small truth about Islam that most people do not know.
Islam: There is much to say about this religion. First you must know that it started with one man. His name was Mohamed. Mohamed is professed by the Islamic faithful as the one and only profit of Allah, the Islamic god. Before we go any further a clarification must be made here. Allah is not the Great I AM, of the Judah/Christian Faiths. Don't confuse the two.
Islam dose take its linage back to Ishmael the first born of Abraham. Islam dose not recognize Jacob's Birth right over Ishmael. But it is clear that The Great I AM dose. This is the first point of contention; that is The Birth right of Ishmael.
The second point is, that Islam dose not recognize Jesus as the son of GOD. Allah has no sons or daughters only the Faithful. In the eyes of Islam Jesus was a minor profit. Islam recognizes the miracles of Jesus and the good he did.
The Bed rock of the Christian belief is.
1. Jesus was born of a virgin through Immaculate Conception.
2. Jesus lived a flawless life for 33 years.
3. Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament in full.
4. Jesus died on the cross to fulfill the last of the prophecies and became the last sacrifice that would ever have to be made.
5. Jesus was raised from the grave by The Great I AM after three days as it was prophesied.
6. Jesus did ascend into heaven to be with his Father, The Great I AM.
Islam dose not believe in any of these things and refuses to consider them. Islam believes that Jesus will come back one day. Islam Believes that Jesus will come back and break the cross, (Defeat Christianity), and convert all who remains alive to Islam.
Another point to understand is the Islamic definition of the word infidel. Infidel is anyone who is not a member of Islam. Who you are makes no difference. If you do not except Islam as your faith, YOU are an infidel.
What does this mean to you? It means that you are to be forced to except Islam or you are to be put to death. To Islam there is no other faith and no other way. If you are not among the faithful you are dead.
There is a true story about a man named Rick Mathes. Rick Mathes is a well known leader in Christian Prison Ministries. Rick wrote the following article. I will lay it out as he wrote it. This will serve as an illustration.
Allah or The Lord Jesus Christ?
... By Rick Mathes ...
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for
maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training
Session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the
Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say.
The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a Video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and Answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked:
'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams
and Clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the
Infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a
Command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If
that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without
Replied, 'Non-believers! '
I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All
followers Of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith So they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to .That of 'a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the Cookie jar.'
He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine
Pope Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or
Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to
guarantee Them a place in heaven!'
The Imam was speechless!
I continued, 'I also have problem with being your 'friend' when you
and Your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me
ask You a question. Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill Me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love You because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?'
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Another fact about Islam is that women have few if any rights. Women are the property of men and are subject to their husbands will. Chattel if you will, unworthy of any consideration except to bare children. If the husband takes issue with anything that the wife dose she is punished. Obedience to the husband is mandatory. Women are given by their fathers to the father's choice of husband, for what ever reason the father has. The young woman has nothing say in the decision.
In the strict Islamic belief, such as practiced by the Tali ban in Afghanistan, women are never to show any part of their body to any one other than their husband. They are to wear a full veil form head to toe. If a woman fails to follow this and other very strict rules she is condemned to death.
The death that she will suffer is very gruesome. She is usually sat down in a mock trial of the male members of the extended family, IE Husband, father, uncles, brothers and elder sons. She is then judged by these male members. If found Guilty she is held down and her throat is cut there and then. Her body is in some cases just thrown out with the garbage. The woman's body is not given a burial. Her memory is rubbed out of the family's memory and she is not ever spoken of ever again.
