What does Islam say about Christianity, Jesus, the Trinity, the Holy Bible, and Almighty God? What does Islam say about the Absolute Truth of Islam, the Prophet Muhammad, and the Holy Qur’an (also spelled Koran)? If there is only One Almighty God, then Christians and Muslims must be praying to the same God. So, what are the differences between the two religions, and why do Muslims reject Christianity, the Bible, and Jesus as the Son of God, but still accept Jesus as a prophet of God? For non-devout and ex-Christians, this book will explain the problems with Christianity from an Islamic perspective. It will also explain that the Prophet Muhammad was sent to replace Jesus as the next person in a succession of prophets that started with the Prophet Adam and finished with the Prophet Muhammad. For Muslims who grew up without a strong religious education, this book will explain that all religions are not the same, that Christianity is no longer valid or accepted by God, and that we should use the logical brains that God gave us to understand Islam. In this book, you will discover that Islam is simply the continuation of Judaism and Christianity, that Islam is the One True Religion of Almighty God and always has been since the time of Adam and Eve, and that the Prophet Muhammad is the next messenger and also the Final Messenger from God, that Jesus promised to his followers. -Gene Netto

Opening the Qur'an can be a bewildering experience to non-Muslim, English-speaking readers. Those who expect historical narratives, stories, or essays on morals are perplexed once they pass the beautiful first Surah, often shocked and then bogged down by Surah 2, and even offended by Surah 3's strictures against nonbelievers. Walter H. Wagner "opens" the Qur'an by offering a comprehensive and extraordinarily readable, step-by-step introduction to the text, making it accessible to students, teachers, clergy, and general readers interested in Islam and Islam's holy Book. Wagner first places the prophet Muhammad, the Qur'an, and the early Muslim community in their historical, geographical, and theological contexts. This background is a basis for interpreting the Qur'an and understanding its role in later Muslim developments as well as for relationships between Muslims, Jews, and Christians. He then looks in detail at specific passages, moving from cherished devotional texts to increasingly difficult and provocative subjects. The selected bibliography serves as a resource for further reading and study. Woven into the discussion are references to Islamic beliefs and practices. Wagner shows great sensitivity toward the risks and opportunities for non-Muslims who attempt to interpret the Qur'an, and sympathy in the long struggle to build bridges of mutual trust and honest appreciation between Muslims and non-Muslims. "Walter Wagner's Opening the Quran: Introducing Islam's Holy Book raises excellent questions designed to draw in curious readers. He then follows up with sound analysis that is easy to grasp. Wagner has clearly learned much about the Qur'an and Islam. What is more he has found a most appealing way to speak about what he has learned to his fellow non-Muslims. --Charles E. Butterworth, University of Maryland, College Park "A number of observers, like Mahmood Mamdani, have pointed out that contemporary events have led to an expansion in the market for translations of the Qur'an. This book will assist and guide readers of these Qur'an translations in the English language. This book could be used in introductory courses on Islam or advanced courses focusing exclusively on Islam's holy Book, the Qur'an . . . general readers outside the academy may also find it useful in helping them understand how to use and make sense of the Qur'an." --A. Rashied Omar, The Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame "The QurÕan can be terra incognita for the non-Muslim reader. Walter Wagner's learned book brings us to terra firma. With clear, empathetic, religiously sensitive yet historical-critical commentary, Opening the Qur'an makes sense of Islam's holy book. Wagner is a rare guide: a committed Christian who has listened carefully and sympathetically to Muslims, who understand the Quran as God's word. Wagner conveys their faith without compromising his own. This is more than a work of scholarship and pedagogy; it is an act of respect from one great tradition to another." --Alan Mittleman, The Jewish Theological Seminary "This is not just a book that is being introduced but a context, a culture, its teachings, and the way Muslims have been interpreting, finding meaning, and living in obedience to the Qur'an over the centuries. What for many non-Muslims has been a puzzling, bewildering, and perplexing book now begins to come alive and to make some sense. . . . I highly recommend this book for use in schools and seminaries and even church study groups where people are serious about learning why the Qur'an is considered by Muslims to be God's final revelation. The book's step-by-step procedure and the important glossary of key terms in the back are extremely useful for readers who are being introduced to the Qur'an for the first time." --Harold Vogelaar, Center of Christian-Muslim Engagement for Peace and Justice, Lutheran School of Theology

Jesus sacrificed himself to curb all sins. When a person believes Jesus died for the sins of mankind his inherited sin will be cleared. Those who disbelieve in Jesus will retain their sin. This is the foundation of Christianity.
Author: P. Zainul Abideen
There is no God but Allah. No one is worthy of worship save Allah. Allah sent prophets to mankind. The basic faith of Islam is Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was the last prophet sent to mankind. Only when a person accepts this he becomes a Muslim. Let us see the basic faith of Christianity, a major religion of world. What makes a person Christian? What faith should he nurture? God's first creation was Adam. God gave Adam a wife Eve; they resided in the Garden of Eden and were provided with fruits from trees. He permitted them to eat all fruits except the forbidden one. They disobeyed God by eating the forbidden fruit and were cursed. Due to them their descendants inherited sin. For any sin committed sacrifice was given. Due to Adam mankind became sinners; a great sacrifice was needed to clear it. Jesus sacrificed himself to curb all sins. When a person believes Jesus died for the sins of mankind his inherited sin will be cleared. Those who disbelieve in Jesus will retain their sin. This is the foundation of Christianity.

Muslims and Christians believe there is only one God / Allah. The basic testimony of Islam is called the 'shahada', the first clause of which states that "la ilaha illa Allah" -- "There is no god but God." This is certainly a statement that Christians would affirm. But how Christians and Muslims conceptualize God in their respective theologies is actually quite different. The emphasis in the Islamic theology of God can be summarized by one word: 'tawhid', which means "absolute unity." Muslims insist that there is no distinction within the Godhead. God is sublimely one. Thus the Islamic polemic against Christianity has centered on the doctrine of Trinity. This is the central doctrine that causes problems for Muslims when they consider Christianity. Muslims have caricatured Christians as tritheists guilty of "shirk," that is, attributing an associate to God. By believing in the Trinity, Muslims say, Christians believe in three gods. This attitude is expressed in the Qur'an: Say not "trinity," Desist. It will be better for you. For God is One God (4:171). They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity, for there is no God except One God (5:76). But every one who knows Christian theology well knows that the doctrine of Trinity was articulated precisely to oppose the idea of believing in three gods! Apparently the understanding of the Trinity was very inadequate among the Christians with whom the earliest Muslims interacted. Early Muslims, therefore, came to understand the Christian doctrine of the Trinity in very distorted, inadequate terms. It seems that some even believed that Christians worshipped Mary as part of the Trinity! This misunderstanding of the Trinity found expression in the Qur'an itself: And behold, God will say; "O Jesus the Son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, "Worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God?" (5:119).
why should it be believed that someone is a prophet in direct communion with the
one - and - only god and that what he ... or Jesus , or Allāh are the only gods and
that there are no gods besides them is just a matter of preferential description .

This book tries to look at the ideological basis of religious statements to find their relevance and validity. Any insistence on supradenominational validity of a particularist religious idea requires to be questioned.The author undertakes a critical examination of the validity of religious claims regarding the exclusive truthfulness of an idea of the divine in supersession of every other idea. A comparative study of the idea of 'God' in the Judaic and Indian traditions have been forcefully used to underline the fact that mankind has described God in myriad forms over the past millenia.

Jewish ) scriptures and the Sabians and the ... They surely lie ( against Allah ,

The Quran, a book which brings glad tidings to mankind along with divine admonition, stresses the importance of man's discovery of truth on both spiritual and intellectual planes. Every book has its objective and the objective of the Quran is to make man aware of the Creation plan of God. That is, to tell man why God created this world; what the purpose is of settling man on earth; what is required from man in his pre-death life span, and what he is going to confront after death. The purpose of the Quran is to make man aware of this reality, thus serving to guide man on his entire journey through life into the after-life. The main themes of the Quran are enlightenment, closeness to God, peace and spirituality. The Quran uses several terms, tawassum, tadabbur, and tafakkur, which indicate the learning of lessons through reflection, thinking and contemplation on the signs of God scattered across the world. The present translation of the Quran and its explanatory notes are written keeping in mind these very themes.

Who would ever think America would be where it is today. Religious liberty is at stake and the ambition of the Islamic countries to rule the world is noticeable in the Congressional leaders, the cabinet of President Obama and the many churches that continue to embrace Islam. This booklet is about the controversy over the name Allah. In Islamic countries, the name Allah is the name of God in most religions. Some have said. “It is the Aramaic word for God and no other name in Aramaic is given to this deity.” While the rest of the world uses Jehovah, Yahweh, and God as titles for God these names are not accepted by Islamic led countries. Because of this, the names for God is compromised in many Islamic countries do not know the difference between the God of the Bible and “the god” of Islam. Christianity is established upon Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Christians accept God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as three persons but one in God. This is known as the trinity and is not accepted by many cultic religions as well as Islam. In Islam to claim that Allah has a son a person can be sentenced to death. I hope that by God's grace I will help to open the eyes of the reader to see the Allah of Islam is no more than a name given by Muhammad to a false deity who was one of many gods of the Nomadic tribes as far back as 8500 BC. These tribes worshiped many gods and by 1200AD they were predominate Islamic and Buddhism. While Islam and Buddhism were the most prominent religions during the Pax Mongolica and other religions were practiced and for the most part tolerated. Assyrian Christianity, was introduced to China in the 7th century in Chang'an, had many followers, including Kublai Khan's mother. Ignorance seems to be the answer why so many are drawn to the name Allah. Biblical history reveals there is one God and He was and is the God of the Jews who sent His son to die on the cross for the sins of man. Until Jesus was born, the message was directed to the Jews and the Barbarians. Because the Jews refused Christ as Savior and Lord, His Virgin Birth, and Resurrection the message went to the Gentiles who received it with open arms. The Church was established upon Christ and according to scripture is His bride that he will return for them someday. This book I hope will open the eyes of the reader to who Allah really is and who Yahweh is.
