As salaamuAllaahi ‘alaykumwarahmatullaahiwabarakaatuhu, my brothers and sisters in Islaam. It is no more news that many a non-Muslimwriter or speaker does portray Islaam and Muslims in bad light. They do this by telling concocted lies and fallacies, as well as creating bogus bogey(false fear) in the minds of unsuspecting young and old Muslimuun and Muslimaat. In shaa Allaah, this column—ISLAMOPHOBIA(hatred or fear of Muslims or of their politics or culture) shall be exposing the lies of these enemies of Islaam by digging majorly into their scripture with a view to enlightening the Ummah.

FIRST EXPOSÉ

A non-Muslim apologetic writer, Dr. Robert Morey, writes on page 6 of Journal of Biblical Apologetics, Number 3, Spring 2012, Volume 5:

Face it, Islam could be a false religion. Two thirds of the people on this planet think so. Are you even open to this fact of logic? If not, then why are you reading this letter? It is addressed to open–minded Muslims who are willing to examine the evidence against Islam with objectivity and intellectual honesty.”

MY RESPONSE

Islaam is the only true religion because:

1.All prophets of Allaah, including our dear prophet Jesus brought one message:MONOTHEISM. Islaam is built on this monotheistic belief. Evidence from the Bible(s) include:

 Worship one God (At-Taoheed)

a) Mark 12:29

“Jesus answered, The first is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God, the Lord is one….”

b) Matthew 19:16-17

“And behold, one came to him and said, Teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?And he said unto him, Why askest thou me concerning that which is good? One there is who is good: but if thou wouldest enter into life, keep the commandments.”

c) Luke 4:8

“And Jesus answered and said unto him, It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

d) Exodus 20:2-5

“I am Jehovah thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.Thou shalt have no other gods before me.Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God.”

e) 1st Timothy 2:5

“For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus.”

2. All prophets of Allaah prayed the same way Muslims pray. They all bowed down to Allaah while praying. They even performed ablution as Muslims do before prayers. These are some of the proofs:

a)  Prophet David performed wuduhu in  II Samuel 12:20

“Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel; and he came into the house of Jehovah, and worshipped….”

b)                Instruction to perform ablution: Exodus 30:21

So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.”

c)                 Moses, Aaron and his sons performed ablution(wuduuhu) in Exodus 40:31-32

And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat; when they went into the tent of meeting, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as Jehovah commanded Moses.”

d)                Abraham, father of faith fell on his face in Genesis 17:3-4

“And Abram fell on his face:and God talked with him, saying,As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of a multitude of nations.”

e)                 Moses and Aaron fell upon their faces—Numbers 20:6

“And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tent of meeting, and fell upon their faces: and the glory of Jehovah appeared unto them.”

f)                  Joshua did the same in Joshua 7:6

“And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of Jehovah until the evening, he and the elders of Israel;and they put dust upon their heads.”

g)                The same thing happened during Prophet Solomon’s era. Check II Chronicles 7:3

“And all the children of Israel looked on, when the fire came down, and the glory of Jehovah was upon the house; and they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and gave thanks unto Jehovah, saying , For he is good; for his loving kindness endureth for ever.”

h)                During Nehemiah’s time, the people bowed down and worshipped Allaah—Nehemiah 8:6

“…and Ezra blessed Jehovah, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with thelifting up of their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped Jehovah with their faces to the ground.”

i)                   Jesus fell on his face in Matthew 17:39

“And he went forward a little, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass away from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

j)                   Jesus’ disciples followed suit in Matthew 17:6

“And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.”

k)                Elijah bent down to the ground in I Kings 18:42

“So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he bowed himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees.”

l)                   Ezra led his people in a congregational prayer—Nehemiah 8:4-6

“And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Uriah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchijah, and Hashum, and Hashbaddanah, Zechariah, andMeshullam.And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up:and Ezra blessed Jehovah, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with the lifting up of their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped Jehovah with their faces to the ground.”

m)              Other places where people bowed down the Islaamic way are found in Revelations 7:11, Psalm 95:6, Psalm 22:29, Judges 13;20, I kings 18:39, Ezekiel 9:8, Samuel 20:41, etc.

The question now is: WHO IS LYING? DR. ROBERT MOREY or the SCRIPTURE he purportedly believes?

 

Ma’a salaam….
