The texts with authority for the Muslim are the Koran and the Hadiths.

There are six different sets of authentic Hadiths ; the Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, Tirmizi, Sunnan Ibn Majah and Sunnan Nasa’I.

The following is not intended to offend Muslims, but to show the teachings and examples of Muhammad. Many Muslims may have little real knowledge of what their god Allah and their prophet has said on this topic.

The general approach today is that of unity through diversity, tolerance and multiculturalism. This is promoted through half truths and complete falsehoods and lies.

The extent of this approach is that many people believe that Allah … the god of the Koran and Islam … is the same as Jehovah (not Yahweh who is an ancient pagan rain god) … the Old Testament God to Israel of the Christian Bible.

Christians and Muslims claim the God of Abraham as their own … however a close look shows they are not the same but are vastly different.

In the Bible and the Koran, both Jehovah are described as Creator, One, Ruler, Revealer, Loving and Forgiving, and a Judge. The Koran claims that Allah and the God of the Bible are identical as follows:

Sura 29:46: “ And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them that do wrong; and say: We believe in that which has been revealed unto you; our God and your God is One, and unto Him we surrender.”

Now in the light of this teaching in the Koran, Muslims claim that Christians have misrepresented Allah as a three—fold God and that they should revert to the original simplicity of the oneness of Allah.

The Bible is way older than the Koran and research shows that the King James Bible has not been changed over time as many Muslims claim.

Deception and Truth



Has a consistent standard of righteousness. He tells people to trust him because he is a covenant-keeping and faithful God (Genesis 17:7; Exodus 34:6; Deuteronomy 7:9; Psalm 36:5; 89:33; 2 Timothy 2:13; Hebrews 13:20)

God’s word stands forever and does not change (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 24:35; Luke 21:33; Numbers 23:19; Malachi 3:6)


There is no deceit in God’s mouth (Isaiah 53:9)

Allah does away with and changes his words (Sura 28:59; 16:101; 13:39; 17:86; 87;6-8).

This makes it difficult to trust a God who changes his preferred people, his methodology and standards.

Allah does as he pleases – leading them in the right way or leading them astray (Sura 8:30) Sura 3:54 And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers

Forgiveness of sins



God always forgives our sins

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)


Muhammad prayed frequently for the forgiveness of sins, but there was no assurance that his sins were forgiven and that he would go to heaven (Sura 46:9; Bukhari Vol. 8, Hadith No. 319).
