Beliefs of Islam
Beliefs of islam:
*****#1. God: There is one true God, his name is Allah.
*****#2. Angels: They are the servants of Allah, who reveal his will. The greatest angel is Gabriel who appeared to Mohammed. All Muslims have two "recording angels" . . . one angel records their good deeds, the other records their bad deeds.
*****#3. The Prophets: Allah has spoken through many prophets, but the final and greatest is Mohammed. Other Muslim prophets include Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus.
*****#4. The Holy Books: The Quran or Koran is the holiest book of Islam, which supposedly is Allah's final revelation to man. It replaces all previous revelations, including the Bible. It contains Allah's word as passed on orally to Mohammed by Gabriel. It contains 114 chapters or Suras. Muslims also recognize the Law of Moses, the Psalms and the gospels but consider them to be really corrupted.
*****#5. The Day of Judgment: A dreadful day on which each person's good and bad deeds will be balanced to determine his fate in eternity.
*****#6. The Decree of God: Allah ordains the fate of all. Muslims believe all events are predetermined and therefore inevitable. "If Allah, wills it", is the comment of a devout Muslim on almost every situation or decision he faces.
The five pillars of Islam:
*****#1. Affirmation: "There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger" which is recited constantly by devout Muslims.
*****#2. The Fast: Faithful Muslims fast from dawn to dusk every day during the ninth month of the Islamic calender, Ramadan, which is sacred.
*****#3. Almsgiving: An earnest Muslim must give 2.5% of his income to the poor.
*****#4. Prayer: True Muslims are required to pray five times a day, kneeling and facing Mecca.
*****#5. The Pilgrimage: Muslims are expected to journey to Mecca at least once in their lifetime.
Islam teaches that Allah is so far above man in every way that is not possible for anyone to know him. He will send individuals to Paradise or Hell, as he chooses.
Islam teaches that Jesus was simply a messenger of God, not the son of God. Muslims deny that Jesus is Almighty God come in the flesh. (John 1:1-14; I John 4:1-2). Muslims deny that Jesus is divine (John 1:1-2; 10:30; 14:9; Col.1:19; 2:9) Muslims deny that He died on the Cross for our sins (many believe that Judas died in his place). Muslims deny that Jesus rose from the dead (Mat.27:66; Lk.24:39-40; Jn.20:20; Acts 1:3; Rev.1:18). Muslims deny that Jesus is the final, conclusive revelation of God (Heb. 1: 1-5).
Is Allah really a god?
Was this stone god (idol) the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? NO! He was NOT! Just because Mohammed said so does NOT make it so! Allah chose Hagar and her son, Ishmael for his covenant. The God of the Bible chose Abraham's other son, Isaac, as heir to His covenant. (Gen 21:12; 22:2-18).
The Muslim’s Allah is an impersonal being, impossible to approach or understand. The Bible's God befriends men like Abraham (Isa.41:8) and talks with them (Gen.18:23-33)! He loved us so much He sent His only begotten Son to die for us! (John 3:15-18, 36; 5:24; 1 John 5:10-13).
Allah is a god of fear and terrorism that commands destruction of ALL who refuse to convert to Islam. The Bible's God lovingly shows His infinite mercy. His Gospel is the Good News of peace and forgiveness.
Allah demands total obedience to Islam and weighs the works of people. Allah and the Quran lower Jesus to just the last prophet before Mohammed, and was far below his authority. Muslims believe that Jesus was NOT the Way, and could only point the way to Mohammed. The Bible's God can only be reached through Jesus Christ and trust in Him is the only way to Heaven. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV)
Allah needed the works of Mohammed to complete his words of judgment to man. The God of the Bible sent His Son who did the finished work of grace for man. (John 19:30).
Because of Allah's real origin and his radical and severe difference from the God of the Bible, it is perfectly clear that Allah is NOT the TRUE God of the Universe! Neither is the name Allah, a common Mid-East name for God, even though many Christians may think this. Allah is the name of a FALSE god (idol) who cannot save anyone from anything. Rather, through his false prophet, Mohammed, he continues to lead hundreds of millions into eternal darkness.
