Posted by DJM on May 3, 2009

    How unbiased

  5. things that made ​​Muhammad (pbuh) by Allah’s command are better than those of Jesus because Jesus is not God, it also proves the Bible when Jesus said, Matthew 12:29, hear ye sons of Israel, the Lord God Our is only one God, and I look for an explanation of this statement by Christians please

    All the quotes of the Quran is wrong that is mentioned in “Jesus vs Muhammed”

    3. Muhammad was illiterate.
    (Qur’an 7:156) but while the same verse states:
    “And ordain for us that which is good, in this life and in the Hereafter: for we have turned to you. He said : “with my punishment I visit whom I will; but My Mercy extends to all things. That (Mercy) I shall ordain for those who do right, pay zakat ( poor-due ), and those who believe in Our Signs-”
    Q: where does it states that Muhammad was illiterate?

    Really people if you want to believe this “crap” then use their reverence and go look up in the Bukhari, Quran etc and go see the truth about what is written there. Just one question. Why in the Quran is there more written about Jesus than the Bible it self? If Islam is so wrong to follow an Saint Worshipper why would there be an open Grave of Jesus next to Muhammed’s grave? God would never let Jesus be burried next to the Saints right? These questions just make you think, doesn’t it?

    ” But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and believe in the ( Revelation ) sent down to Muhammad – for it is the Truth from their Lord – He will remove from them their ills and improve ther condition.” (Q 47:2 )
    Why would our Lord pick a Saint worshipper to be an Messenger and Prophet of God?

    ” It is He who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion: and enough is Allah for a Witness” (Quran 48:28 )
    So God sent a saint worshipper with guidance for the followers? And then God is for a witness of it? O please people He sent down Muhammed to give one message of the One God and the only God and that nothing can accompany Allah. ” La Illaha Illillah”- there is no God except Allah. Why would a saint worshipper bring this message to us?
