Islam's Beliefs, Practices and History

Islam is the world's fastest growing ideology. Men are permitted up to 4 wives and each one is expected to produce children. High birth rates account for 96 percent of Islam’s growth.

Muslims believe there is one God, Allah, and Muhammad was his prophet. Muhammad claimed only one miracle, the Qur’an, the most holy book of Islam.

Muhammad studied books of the Bible and interacted with Jews and Christians; 23 percent of Qur’an verses refer to Judaism and Christianity.

Islam holds that all prophets named in the Christian Bible were Muslims, including Noah, Moses, David and Jesus. (Qur’an 3:33, 3:42-47; 3:48-55; 5:109-120; 34:10-14)

In Islam ‘praying’ means reciting words in Arabic but fewer than 20 percent of Muslims understand Arabic.

Nearly all Muslims are taught from childhood that Islam is a religion of peace.

Muslims must conform to the traditions of Islam. Any who willfully disobey or try to escape Islam may be executed for blasphemy or apostasy. (Qur’an 3:90; 4:89) Muhammad said, “If anyone discards his religion, kill him.” (Bukhari 1:52:260)

Muslim scholars freely admit that Islam cannot exist without the death penalties for blasphemy and apostasy.

Islam holds that Jesus was born of a virgin, could heal the sick and raise the dead but was only human; that Jesus was a prophet but Muhammad was a greater prophet. (Qur’an 18:4-5; 37:152; 43:81)

The Quran identifies Jews and Christians as hell-bound friends of Satan who will always try to lead Muslims astray. (Qur’an 2:145, 2:211, 2:120; 2:159-160; 2:221; 4:56)

Islam holds that Allah loves only Muslims and commands them to convert, subjugate or kill non-Muslims to make Islam the only religion on earth. (Qur’an 8:39; 9:5; 9:14; 9:29; 9:111)

Every one of Islam’s required five-a-day prayers reminds Arabic-speaking Muslims that Jews and Christians are enemies of Islam.

Ten years after Muhammad’s death in AD 632, the Qur’an was compiled from notes made by people who remembered some of Muhammad’s recitations.

Islam holds that Christians are polytheists because they worship three Gods (Qur’an 4:171; 5:72-75; 6:101; 13:36 and other verses) ; Christianity holds there is only one God in three persons, similar to the way one man can be a father, a husband and brother at the same time.

Islam’s “principle of abrogation” is kept secret because it reveals the Qur’ans violent verses supplant all the peaceful verses.

The only Muslims who can be certain Allah will send them to Paradise are those killed or wounded while fighting in the Cause of Allah. All others must wait until Judgment Day for Allah to weigh their good and bad deeds.

One percent of fighting age Muslim men produces an army of 2.6 million (2,600,000) soldiers. Muslims already control 21 percent of the world’s habitable land. See calculation.

Tens of millions of the world’s refugees are Muslims trying to escape the hatred, violence, wars, poverty and harsh demands of Islam.

Part of Islam’s mandatory contributions to Allah (zakat) goes to fund Islamic jihadists.

Islam prohibits Muslim charities from helping non-Muslims in need.

Islam encourages lying when a Muslim’s personal safety depends on concealing his beliefs, and when deception is necessary to maintain a military advantage. (Qur'an 8:58; 3:28; 6:106; 3:54)

Islamic fighters value death more than life; if killed while fighting they believe Allah will send them to Paradise and provide food, wine and beautiful virgins for their eternal sexual pleasure. (Qur’an 38:52; 52:20; 4:57; 55:56)

A huge and growing number of “Muslims” look and behave like their neighbors but are secret disciples of Isa al-Masih (Jesus the Messiah). Startling accounts of their faith and courage are contained in the works of David Garrison, Nabeel Qureshi, Tom Doyle and Jerry Trousdale.
