Islamophobia is something I’d never dreamt would happen. Why are people afraid of a religion that they know nothing about? Donald Trump has made it publicly “OK” to bash anyone of the Islamic faith, or anyone Arab for that matter- religious or not! Why is this happening? Why aren’t people taking the time to research and discover for themselves what this beautiful religion is all about?
Christianity and Islam are both Abrahamic religions. The Quran and Bible share similar stories and some of the same people appear in both. Abraham, Moses, Noah, Adam, Jesus, etc. are all found in both books. Shocking, right? Or did you really think every other word in the Quran is ‘bomb’?
Jesus is mentioned more times in the Quran than Muhammad. Muhammad is not mentioned in the Bible by name. He is being referred to, he was not born yet. Jesus basically says there will be one more Messenger after him to spread the word of God, and that is it. Muslims believe Muhammad is the final messenger, Jesus preceding him.
Mary has a whole chapter named after her in the Quran. Mary, the mother of Jesus. We Muslims believe she is one of the best of women to walk the Earth. Why isn’t there a chapter in the Bible dedicated to her? Hmm.
The Bible has several different “authors” and was written down many years after the events took place. How do we know things weren’t left out, added in, or even exaggerated? The Bible has been changed many times throughout history. If this is the true word of God, what human feels so entitled that they can change the word of God? The Quran has never been altered since it’s revelation 1400+ years ago.
Christians worship Jesus. For what reason? They believe he is God, and also the son of God… crazy concept right? The father, son, and holy spirit are all one person, so 1+1+1=1 . Jesus has never said, “I am God, you must worship me”. Jesus can not be God. Jesus was born, he had to eat, sleep, drink… all of the humanly functions that God does not have to do. All the powers Jesus had, came from God. If God had to eat, it would mean he is a human like us, which he is definitely not. God is something our minds can not comprehend. God doesn’t need to drink to re-hydrate, he doesn’t need to sleep, he doesn’t need to shower, or anything that us humans have to do. God has no partners, he has no one that is comparable at all.
Islam teaches peace, modesty, respect, discipline, charity, sacrifice. It does NOT teach us to bomb each other, like what the media portrays. Please, research credible sources and discover for yourself what this beautiful religion is all about, and my God guide you to the straight path.
