ISLAM – THE RELIGION OF HATE


A growing number of Muslims are slowly beginning to realize that there is something fundamentally wrong with Islam. As a result, some are leaving Islam quietly. Others desperately try to salvage Islam through lies and deception. However, it is not that simple anymore. The information age is exposing the truth about Islam as never before. Islam is no longer a private affair. Muslims can no longer conceal the darkness of their religion. The hateful teachings in the Qur’an are no longer a secret. They are acted out on the streets. Islam’s lust for blood is captured in vivid images for the world to see. And the world is slowly waking up to the atrocities and horrors of Islam.

And to match this murderous hate oozing out of the bloody pages of the Qur’an, Allah gave Muslims an equally cruel prophet. Muhammad was a vile man. His acts of cruelty are recorded in the most authentic Islamic sources. And they are pure evil. When we put aside the lies and the deceptions of the Muslims and study the true life history of Muhammad, the portrait of a psychopath emerges. Muhammad was anything but a prophet of the true God.

The difference between Christianity and Islam lies in the difference between Jesus Christ and Muhammad. And their differences can be comparable to the contrast between light and darkness. While Jesus was the icon of everything that is good, Muhammad was the incarnation of evil. Do not take our word for it, please check the sources of Islam. Check the historical record of Muhammad in the Hadiths. Let the record speak for itself.

The atrocities perpetrated by Muhammad far exceed anything we can imagine. Muslims who read his biography are stunned by his ruthless violence and his hideous inhumanity. However, in their blindness to justify his wickedness, they reasoned that there must be some grand underlying rationale behind all this evil which they failed to recognize in their ignorance. Otherwise, how could a man claiming to be a prophet of God be so ruthless? How could he kill so many people with such fervor while praising God at the same time? How could he plunder the wealth of others while encouraging his followers to become pious? It makes no sense. And Muslims blame themselves for failing to make sense of the madness of Muhammad. Those sensible enough to see through the hypocrisy of Muhammad are fearful to question his actions, lest they incur the wrath of Allah at the hands of fellow Muslims.

Most criminals do not talk about God. They often have a trace of conscience left in them. And many are overtaken by remorse. But not the psychopaths! Psychopaths do not have a conscience. They feel entitled to kill, and they believe they are doing the work of God. And Muhammad was a psychopath. This explains much of Muhammad’s behavior, from his extreme ruthless conduct to his debased immoral lifestyle. This psychopath even issued death warrants against those who simply recited poetry that criticized him. Such feelings of grandiose – an above criticism mentality – is a common trait among psychopaths. And today Muslims try to massacre all those who criticize their prophet. In sharp contrast to the wicked unforgiving attitude of Muhammad, Jesus forgave even his executioners. In his dying breath he prayed:

Luke 23:34:“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

Well, what about Allah? What does the Qur’an reveal about him? How does he compare to the loving nature of the true God? Regarding Jehovah, the Holy Bible reveals his deep loving concern for mankind. And it shows how much he cares for their eternal salvation. As mankind’s true Creator, he even pleads to the wicked to leave their evil ways:

Ezekiel 18:23: “‘Do I take any pleasure at all in the death of a wicked person?’ declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘Do I not prefer that he turn away from his ways and keep living?’

Ezekiel 18:32: “‘I do not take any pleasure in the death of anyone,’ declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. So turn yourselves from your bad ways and live, O you people.’”

2 Peter 3:9: “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but desires for all to come to repentance.”

The true God is a God of love. He cares for the people. His love even reaches out to the wicked. He entreats the wicked to change their evil ways and keep living. In contrast to the loving nature of Jehovah, the following Qur’anic verses expose the shocking evil nature of Allah. They reveal that Allah deliberately holds back guidance from mankind. In Islam, Allah decides the final destination of every individual in the hereafter. He predestines who will go to Paradise and who will go to Hell. And the destiny of that individual is predetermined by Allah before that person is even born. The reason why Allah deliberately holds back guidance is to make sure that his quota of the number of persons he has predestined to Hell will be accomplished without fail. Allah delights in sending people to Hell. Carefully reflect on the following diabolic decree of Allah:

Surah 32:13: Had we willed, we could have given every soul its guidance, but it is already predetermined that I will fill Hell with jinns and humans,all together.(Khalifa)

If We had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, “I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together.” (Yusuf Ali)

And

Surah 11:119: “…and for this did He create them: and the Word of thy Lord shall be fulfilled: ‘I shall fill Hell with the jinns and men altogether.’” (Yusuf Ali)

Those predestined to Hell are doomed from the very beginning since it will be impossible for such ones to work out their own salvation against the predetermined will of Allah. In the Religion of Hate there is no free will when it comes to salvation or damnation. A person’s salvation or damnation is predetermined in advance by Allah and assigned to that individual. This means that even before an individual commits a single sinful act, he or she is already destined to Hell by Allah. Is not Allah’s predestination of a person to suffer eternal torment a gross violation of justice? Not only does Allah deliberately hold back guidance, but he also misleads and sends astray whomever he wishes. If you think we are making this up, please read the following Qur’anic verse. Three different translations are provided here for you. Allah reveals his evil ambition to Muhammad in the following verse:

Surah 5:41: “He whom Allah doometh unto sin, thou by thine efforts wilt avail him naught against Allah. Those are they for whom the Will of Allah is that He cleanse not their hearts. Theirs in the world will be ignominy, and in the Hereafter an awful doom.”(Pickthall)

And the one whom Allah wills to send astray, you will never be able to help him in the least against Allah; they are those whose hearts Allah did not will to cleanse; for them is disgrace in this world, and for them is a great punishment in the Hereafter.” (Faridul Haque)

Yet whomever Allah wishes to mislead, you cannot avail him anything against Allah. They are the ones whose hearts Allah did not desire to purify. For them is disgrace in this world, and there is a great punishment for them in the Hereafter.” (Ali Quli Qarai)

Even Muhammad cannot save those whom Allah doometh unto sin.” How can one submit to a deity who intentionally holds back guidance for the sole pleasure of filling Hell with mankind? This can only mean that the spirit which speaks until today in the Qur’an is neither divine nor godly but rather an ungodly demonic power that holds more than a billion Muslims in captivity. And this same demonic spirit inspires Muslims to kill. Submitting to the will of this murderous spirit, Muslims kill with impunity. That is why every killing in the name of Islam is carried out to accompaniment of the blood-thirsty cries of “Allahu Akbar”  Allah is Greater. This demonic spirit has to be glorified before the sacrifice is offered. Decent humans everywhere express shock and horror at the mindless slaughter carried out by Muslims. They cannot comprehend how anyone could become so evil. The answer can be found in the Bible:

John 8:44: You are from your father the Devil and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a murdererwhen he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him.

Yes! The reason Muslims kill with an untroubled conscience is because they reflect the same murderous spirit as the deity they worship. In opposition to the murderous spirit of Islam, Christians are commanded to love their enemies. They are commanded to love their enemies in imitation of the God they worship:

Matthew 5:44-45:However, I say to you: Continue to love your enemiesand to pray for those who persecute you, so that you may prove yourselves sons of your Father who is in the heavens, since he makes his sun rise on both the wicked and the good and makes it rain on both the righteous and the unrighteous.

Jesus Christ stated an interesting principle in the Holy Bible:

Matthew 7:16-18:“You shall know them by their fruits.Do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles?  Likewise every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit; a good tree cannot bear worthless fruit,neither can a rotten tree produce fine fruit.”

In line with this principle, we can determine the true source of Islam by observing its fruitage. And the fruits of Islam are evil. Only evil can begat evil. An undeniable evidence of this can be seen by the teachings of Islam in the Qur’an. The Qur’an contains more than a hundred verses that call for Muslims to wage war against non-Muslims. Muslims who do not join the fight against the non-Muslims are termed as “hypocrites” in the Qur’an. These “hypocrites” are warned of a fiery destination in Hell if they do not join in the slaughter.

The Qur’anic verses calling for the violent subjugation of non-Muslims are open-ended. This means that they are not restrained or limited by time. In other words, they are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah. Therefore, the call for warfare against the non-Muslims is just as relevant today as it was in Muhammad’s time. Islam is not a religion of peace, it has never been. The following are direct quotes from the Qur’an. According to the Qur’an, warfare is “good” for Muslims:

Surah 2:216: Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you know not. (Pickthall)

To fool us, Muslims deceitfully claim that Islamic wars are defensive in nature. The following Qur’anic verse belies their claim:

Surah 9:29: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. (Yusuf Ali)

Observe the above commandment of Allah carefully. This Qur’anic verse does not say that Muslims should fight only those who attack them. Muslims are simply commanded to fight against those:

(1) Who believe not in Allah. (2) Who do not believe in the Last Day. (3) Who do not prohibit for themselves all that which has been forbidden by Allah and his Messenger. (4) Who do not acknowledge Islam as the religion of Truth.

Does the commandment in Surah 9:29 restrictMuslims to fight only defensive wars? Is it not an unmistakable commandment to wage offensive wars against all those who do not believe in Allah or his teachings in the Qur’an? In fact, just by consuming pork or alcohol or anything else which are forbidden by Allah, you have signed your own death warrant. You have given Muslims sufficient reasons to wage warfare against you. The only reason Muslims are not enforcing this commandment of Allah on a global scale is because of the strength of the infidels. It may not remain this way forever. But there is more to Surah 9:29.

Actually Surah 9:29 is a commandment from Allah to fight the “People of the Book.” The term, “People of the Book” refers to the Jews and Christians. Muslims were commanded to fight the Jews and Christians “until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Allah’s commandment to fight the Jews and Christians is not because they were attacking or even planning to attack the Muslims. It was because the Muslims feared poverty. A new situation developed during the early days of Islam, resulting in the sudden loss of trade for Muslims. This was because Allah now prohibited the pagans from entering the sacred Mosque in Mecca. And it resulted in financial loss for Muslims.

Well, what was Allah’s solution for the financial reversal of the Muslims? Attack the Jews and Christians and let them compensate for the loss of trade. This is made clear in Surah 9:28 – the verse preceding Surah 9:29. We will now read both these verses together to understand the clear message of Allah:

Surah 9:28-29: O ye who believe! Truly the Pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the Sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty, soon will Allah enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for Allah is All-knowing, All-wise. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.

Just like a common criminal, Allah is willing to kill for money. The Tafsir (Commentary) by the renowned Muslim scholar, Ibn Kathir, provides the historical context for the purpose of revealing Surah 9:28-29.

Ibn Kathir, “The Battles of the Prophet,” pp. 183-4:

Allah, Most High, ordered the believers to prohibit the disbelievers from entering or coming near the sacred Mosque. On that, Quraish thought that this would reduce their profits from trade.Therefore, Allah, Most High, compensated them and ordered them to fight the people of the Book until they embrace Islam or pay the Jizyah. 

Allah says, “O ye who believe! Truly the pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the sacred Mosque. And if ye fear povertysoon will Allah enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (Surah 9:28-29)

Therefore, the Messenger of Allah decided to fight the Romans in order to call them to Islam. (End of Quote)

The Messenger of Allah decided to fight the Roman Christians not because they were attacking or planning to attack the Muslims but because of Allah’s command in Surah 9:29. It was a unilateral attack by the Muslims. It was Allah’s easy solution for their loss of income.

Christians who refuse to convert to Islam have to pay a hefty sum of their wealth as compensation for their life. And this is not a one-off thing. The monetary compensation has to be paid on a regular basis as long as they are under the Muslim yoke. Hence, the only reason Christians were given an alternative choice is not because Allah is merciful. It is because the Muslims needed a steady flow of cash to make up for their idleness. Dead Christians cannot be extorted to make payments on a regular basis. And Allah knew that.

This form of protection money that Allah shamelessly extorts from Christians is known as the Jizya. Any Christian who fails to pay will be put to death. Allah knew that most Christians would rather pay the Jizya tax than convert to Islam. Thus, like a common gangster, Allah enriched the Muslims through extortion. Allah is an extortioner.

Compare the wicked attitude of Allah with the compassion of Jehovah for the foreigners who were living in the midst of his people. Consider carefully the laws that Jehovah God gave to the ancient nation of Israel. Notice how these laws reveal his loving concern even for those who were not fellow Israelites. The Israelites were commanded to love them. Instead of taking, they were commanded to give. Please read the following verses carefully:

Deuteronomy 10:17-19: For Jehovah your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the God great, mighty and fear-inspiring, who treats none with partiality nor accepts a bribe, executing judgment for the fatherless boy and the widow and loving the foreign resident so as to give him bread and clothing. You too must love the foreign resident, for you became alien residents in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 19:9-10: And when you people reap the harvest of your land, you must not reap the edge of your field completely and the leftovers of your harvest you must not pick up. You must not gather the leftovers of your vineyard and you must not pick up the scattered grapes of your vineyard. For the afflicted one and the foreign resident you should leave them. I am Jehovah your God.

Leviticus 19:33-34: And in case a foreign resident resides with you as an alien in your land, you must not mistreat him. The foreign resident who resides as an alien with you should become to you like a native of yours; and you must love him as yourself, for you became foreign residents in the land of Egypt. I am Jehovah your God.

Unlike Allah, Jehovah did not command the Israelites to extort the foreigners for their livelihood. Instead he commanded the Israelites to love and provide for them. These are the hallmarks of a true Creator. It is very obvious that Islam cannot be the religion of the true God.

Allah is not through with extorting the Christians. The Religion of Hate also teaches that everything that is owned by the infidels belong to the Muslims. This right of ownership is granted to Muslims by Allah. Thus, Allah has given Muslims the divine right to rob us of everything in our possession. And this means our property, our land, our women and even our lives. Therefore, it should not surprise us to learn that Muhammad became a robber only after he became a Muslim. Before that he worked hard as an honest trader for Khadijah.

Surah 33:27: And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and to a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things. (Shakir)

And Allah gradually stole the lands of the infidels by allowing their lands to come under the control of Muslims:

Surah 21:44: See they not that We gradually reduce the land in their control from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win? (Yusuf Ali)

And the Religion of Hatealso decrees that any non-Muslim who converts to Islam by mistake or to escape death at the hands of Muslims, cannot thereafter leave Islam. Death is the only Islamic way out!

Surah 4:89:  But if they turn back from Islam, take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them and take neither Auliya’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them. (Hilali-Khan)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:

Narrated ‘Ikrima: Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’”

Allah prefers the killing of the infidels than converting them to Islam. The Religion of Hate confirms this blood-thirsty nature of Allah in the following Qur’anic verses:

Surah 8:67: It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth for you the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise. (Pickthall)

Surah 47:35: And be not slack so as to cry for peace and you have the upper hand, and Allah is with you. (Shakir)

Ibn Ishaq, one of the earliest biographers of Muhammad, recorded the chilling words of Allah.

Ibn Ishaq: 327: Allah said, “A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.”

Today, Muslim jihadist like the Islamic State and Boko Haram are doing just that. They are carrying out the commandments of Allah in the Qur’an. And like their prophet they are waging jihad against the rest of the world:

Surah 9:88: But the Messenger and the believers in his company have carried out Jihadwith their wealth and lives, and for them there are the good things, and they are the successful. (Usmani)

As we have noted, Muslims are commanded not to “cry for peace when they have theupper hand.”  They are also commanded to slaughter before collecting captives” because “Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.” While the Holy Bible teaches Christians to love their enemies, the Religion of Hate teaches Muslims to kill as a means to gain salvation.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 73:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abi Aufa: Allah’s Apostle said, “Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords.”

The shortest route to Paradise is through the sword – through the shedding of innocent blood. If the Islamic Paradise is “under the shades of swords,” what does this teach you about Islam? Can it really be a religion of peace? Islam lives and grows by shedding blood. It needs blood to survive. There are many more teachings of absolute hatred in Islam. What we have revealed in this article is only a minute fraction of these teachings. It will be pointless to continue enumerating all these teachings of hatred if we have no intention of working out a countermeasure against it.

Islam has to be countered. This very suggestion may be staggering to many. How do we counter a religion that has grown so powerful and huge? A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. We need to take that first single step. Indifference is not an option. Focusing on the monster will only dishearten us. Instead, we need to focus on individual Muslims. We need to help sincere Muslims leave this cult of death. We need to know the strength and weaknesses of Islam. To have a meaningful dialogue with Muslims, we must know the Islamic faith well.

Before we proceed any further, it must be emphasized that armed violent confrontation with Islam, as suggested by a growing number, is not the answer. It only makes Islam stronger and justifies its violence. And more importantly, it is not the way of the loving God that we worship:

2 Corinthians 10:3-5: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage warfare according to what we are in the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful by God for overturning strongly entrenched things. For we are overturning reasonings and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are bringing every thought into captivity to make it obedient to the Christ.

This emphasizes the need to recognize the spiritual nature of our conflict with Islam. To begin, we must have the confidence that we can win this war. We must have the confidence that honest-hearted Muslims can be helped to see the truth and come to an accurate knowledge of the true God. And we can have this confidence because the number of persons leaving Islam is growing by the day. Yes! Many are leaving this Religion of Hate. The reason for this is because they are learning the truth about Islam. Many more are waiting to be saved. Are you prepared to engage in this life-saving work? Islam is a lie and it is allergic to truth. Hence, revealing the truth about Islam is crucial in our warfare. For truth to prevail over falsehood, it must be preached and defended:

Romans 10:13-14:How, in turn, will they put faith in Him about whom they have not heard? How, in turn, will they hear without someone to preach?

Islam has a weakness. Islam claims that the Qur’an is the literal word of God. And it claims that Allah dictated the Qur’an word for word to Muhammad. Therefore, Islam is an all-or-nothing cult. Any fault in the Qur’an, or doubts as to the truthfulness of Muhammad, can easily shaken the faith of the Muslims. Muslims have already realized this. That is why they fly into tantrums whenever Muhammad or the Qur’an is criticized. This paranoid, hypersensitive defensiveness and outrage at criticism cannot be the reactions of a confident belief system. These reactions are evidence of an attempt to protect a fatal vulnerability – an attempt to cover the weakness of Islam.

We need to take advantage of this weakness. We need to expose the immoral character of Muhammad. If we destroy Muhammad, we destroy the credibility of Islam. If Muhammad is exposed as a wicked imposter, an immoral man, a cold blooded killer, a violent rapist, then the Qur’an and the Hadiths will become nothing more than the worthless ravings and ramblings of an impotent religious system. It is good to remember that while exposing the ugly truth about Muhammad, we do so with tact and discretion. However, this does not mean we water down our message.

The vast majority of Muslims do not know the true teachings of Islam. And Muslims revere Muhammad because very few know the truth about him. If we awaken sincere Muslims to see the true nature of Muhammad, they will leave this barbaric cult. In the beginning it may hurt Muslims to learn the ugly truth about Islam and their beloved prophet. However, when they realize that what we are sharing with them is actually based on the Qur’an and the historical records written by their own Muslim scholars, it may be the beginning of their journey to know the real Islam. They will slowly realize that Islam has nothing to do with the true God. And they will reach out to other Muslims. The key to countering the teachings of Islam is education. Ideologies should be countered with ideology. Since the ideology of Islam is built on a religious foundation, we must also encounter it on a spiritual premise. Our defense must be based on the solid foundation of God’s Word. In order to accomplish this, we must educate ourselves. Only then we can educate others.

The single most important step to help Muslims is to first attain a good knowledge of the Bible. Never underestimate this first step of knowing the Word of God. Many will scoff at this suggestion. If you are among them, pause for a moment and think. Have you ever wondered why nations that are more powerful, more knowledgeable and more advance than Islam powerless to stop it? Have you ever wondered why the leaders and intellectuals of these powerful nations seem to be under the spell of Islam? Have you ever wondered why these leaders mindlessly cave in to every demand of the Muslims? Have you ever wondered why they are unable to see the dangers of Islam? Have you ever wondered why they are unable to see the obvious?

The answer to these questions is simple but not to many. It is because in their arrogance these leaders have rejected the divine knowledge of God. And as a result, they have failed to understand that there are causes more sinister than meets the eye. They have failed to comprehend the reality of unseen forces at work in the affairs of the world. Please read the sobering disclosure of these unseen forces in the following Bible verses:

2 Corinthians 4:3-4: If, in fact, the good news we declare is veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing, among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers.

Ephesians 6:11-12:We have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places.

Beyond the physical world, there are invisible forces at work. Thus, we can clearly see that a purely temporal approach in countering the state of affairs has resulted in the utter failure of these leaders. But even more serious than that, it has resulted in their failure to perceive the reality of the dangers looming over them. They could not see that beyond the symptom there is a more destructive disease at work. There is an interesting verse in the Bible that is worth considering:

Hosea 4:6: My people perished because of lack of knowledge.

Now ask yourself: If the Bible is not a threat to Islam, then why do Muslim leaders go to such great lengths to suppress the knowledge of the Bible from reaching the Muslims? Why is it illegal to share Bible truths with Muslims in many Muslim countries? Why does Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, ban foreigners from bringing in the Bible – even if it happens to be their own personal copy? Why are Muslims discouraged by their leaders to read the Bible? What is it in the Bible that generates such fear for it?

Ephesians 6:17: “Also, accept the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God.”

The Bible is a powerful weapon in our spiritual warfare against the darkness of Islam. And God’s word is called “the sword of the spirit.” When used effectively, the Bible’s message can free Muslims from spiritual bondage to the false teachings of the Qur’an. It is a sword that saves lives instead of destroying them. We should strive to wield it skillfully. A soldier can wield his weapon effectively only if he has practiced and has learned to use it well. It is the same with the use of the Bible. Be a good soldier. Christians have an advantage. The God of the Bible is love personified. By touching the hearts of Muslims with this intrinsic love of our God, we can overcome any insurmountable barriers that stand in the way to reach them.

Does this then mean that we now rush into martyrdom? Of course not! That would be both foolish and counterproductive. It means we must find ways to save Muslims without stirring the hornet’s nest. It means we must go about accomplishing our task quietly and discreetly. Our enemies should not even realize the loss that is occurring in their midst. Yet, it must be done. In order to burn a forest, we do not have to personally set fire to the entire forest. Such a task would be insurmountable. All we have to do is to start a few fires here and there and let the fire do their work. Similarly, if we begin by helping a few Muslims, here and there, to come to an accurate knowledge of the Bible, they will now be in a position to spread this knowledge to still others. A husband to his wife, a man to his siblings, children to their parents and so on. Slowly but surely the fire will spread.

In our endeavor to save Muslims, we must learn from the example of Jesus. The courage of Jesus was based not on bravado but on faith. To avoid becoming fainthearted, faith is important. And faith can move mountains.

1 John 5:4: “This is the conquest that has conquered the world, our faith.”

We must also remember that it is God who draws people to the truth by means of his holy spirit. Therefore, we must pray for God’s holy spirit in both helping us to speak the Word of God and in opening the hearts and minds of the Muslims with whom we share the Gospel. And God will help us. He has promised to do just that:

Acts 1:8: You will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you and you will be witnesses of meboth in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the most distant part of the earth.
