Know Islam, Know Paradise

…AND THE WOMAN IS HUMAN, TOO

…AND THE WOMAN IS HUMAN, TOO. By Sanni Kay. Yusuf The woman should be receptive of the other woman as a partner in progress, not as a rock in rivalry. This is the ideal of Islam; the reality of the era; and the truth of the matter. But it is apparently not easy for the…

Click here for previous session     It’s far easier to imagine Jesus saying, “Do not say Trinity: desist …” or “They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except one God” than to imagine him saying, “Well, sure, I said there was only one God, but what I really meant was …” Understandably, some view the clarity of Islamic monotheism, once juxtaposed to the tangled and indefensible web of Trinitarian ideology, and wonder, “Well, what’s wrong with Islam then?” Others continue to object, “But Jesus is God!” Upon the foundation of such opposing viewpoints are the lines of…

The qualification that gave you a job is the same qualification someone has, but does not have a job. Be grateful to Allah and say Alhamdulilahi. The Imam who officiated at your wedding, blessed your marriage and today you have children, was the same Imam who officiated and blessed others’ marriages but they are still…

Click here for previous session       Similarly, for every verse held as evidence of the Trinity, there is one or more that discredits or disqualifies. Much to the frustration of the Christian world, biblical confirmation of Jesus teaching the Trinity is not just scarce, it is absent. If anything, the opposite is the case. Three times Jesus is recorded as having emphasized the first commandment, saying, “The Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Mark 12:29; Matthew 22:37; and Luke 10:27). In none of these three instances did he even hint at the Trinity. And who has more biblical authority than Jesus? Vain analogies similarly fall apart. The Trinitarian argument that, “God is one, but One in a triune being, like…
