We seek refuge in Allah from shaytan, the rejected. In the name of God. the Most Beneficent , the Most Merciful. Whoever is guided by Almighty God , no one can Misguide him and surely, whoever is misguided no one can guide him Except Almighty God. The God of Adam, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Jonah, John the Baptists, Joseph , Jesus Christ and other Prophets of God that were not mentioned. May the peace and Blessing of God continue to be with the Noble and Universal Prophet in Person of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.).
“Why lies and propaganda against Islam”, one wonders. One might be forced to wonder, why do some people employ mischief in the name of propagating their religion supposedly to have come from God. We have seen many books and articles against Islam that the names of the authors are not real. This is a response to Paul Bayero though we have no idea if he exists.
Islam teaches me that everyone has the right to practice any religion he wants without anybody attacking others because of religious differences. In Qu’ran chapter 109 verse 6;
“For you is your religion, and for me is my religion”
Qur’an chapter 2 verse 256 says
“No compulsion in Religion”
It is unfortunate that some have taken insulting other people’s belief as priority. At this age, no one will make a false claim and go scot-free without being intellectually refuted. There is a story going around about the “great” conversion of Paul Bayero. The Bible said in book of John 8:30, that you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. The Truth will be manifest in this rebuttal.
In the first of Paragraph, Paul Bayero wrote that the northerners or the Muslims were wondering whether it was true that he is now a Christian???” Certainly, NO!!!!!, The Qur’an says that no one can misguide the guided except God and no one can guide the Misguided except God. Mr. Paul also said His Mother was a devout Muslim and she used to abuse Christians anywhere she saw them. After reading that statement of Paul, we begin to doubt whether for real his mother was a devout Muslim, because devout Muslims don’t insult or abuse anyone because of his/her religion as stated in Qur’an chapter 6 verse 108, it says;
“ And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, lest they
insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have
made pleasing to every community their deeds. Then to their
Lord is their return, and He will inform them about what they
used to do”
In second paragraph, Paul Bayero wrote,
” I learnt the secrets of the Quran from Juzili which says that the words of truth and justice are in THAT book”
Whoever is Paul Bayero should provide a scholar or a verse in the Qur’an that confirms this uneducated and ignorant claim. Moreover, how does THAT book translates to the Bibles?
“According to the Qur’an, there are three books the Qur’an, injila and purah. The Torah and the Injeel are in the bible. This means that the Qur’an is saying that the truth is in the Bible”
If he is really serious that the Qur’an says the truth is in the Bible, we can ask him and those who champion him series of questions. Which of these Bibles do we accept to be the truth that the Qur’an points to?

The reader may want to comment, “But these are just translations”. These different versions of the bible go more than being just mere translations. It appears many of them are translating from different manuscript because the different bible versions vary in terms of number of books and verses in them.
For example, In the King James Version of the Protestants, we have 66 Books while in the Good News Bible of the Catholics, we have 73 books. So, we can see that they are not just mere translations but versions.
In 2 Chronicles 22:2 of the King James Bible, we read,
“Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.”
In contrast to this, We read 2Chronicles22:2 in the New International Version,
“Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king and he reigned in Jerusalem one year. His mother’s name was Athaliah, a granddaughter of Omri.”
The King James Version gives the age of Ahaziah to be 42 when he began to reign while The New International version says 22.Which did God inspire? 42 or 22?
The Revised Standard Version, The New International Version and The New World Translation of the bible expunged 16 verses from their Bibles e.g Romans 16:24
Many versions of the bible have problems with 1Samuel13:1, Let us have a look.
* NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION
Saul was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned over Israel forty- two years.
* ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION
Saul lived for one year and then became king, and when he had reigned for two years over Israel.
* KING JAMES BIBLE
Saul reigned one year; and when he had reigned two years over Israel
Saul was [thirty] years old when he began to reign; he ruled over Israel for [forty] years.
NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE 1977
Saul was forty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty-two years over Israel.
JPS TANAKH 1917
Saul was –years old when he began to reign; and two years he reigned over Israel.
AMERICAN STANDARD VERSION
Saul was forty years old when he began to reign; and when he had reigned two years over Israel,
YOUNG’S LITERAL VERSION
A son of a year is Saul in his reigning, yea, two years he hath reigned over Israel
The bible is far from being the word of God and as David Cross puts it,” Back when the bible was written, then edited, then rewritten, rewritten, then re-edited, then translated from dead languages, then re-translated, then edited, then rewritten, then given to kings for them to take their favourite parts, then rewritten, then re-rewritten, then translated again, then given to the pope for him to approve, then rewritten, then edited again, then re-re-re-re-rewritten again…all based on stories that were told orally 30 to 90 years after they happened, to people who did not how to write…so…”
While the Catholic Bible consists of 73 books, the Protestants Bible contains 66 books. Then, which of these is the truth?
How can any sane being compare the Bibles that are full of errors, anachronisms, discrepancies, variations, inconsistencies and contradictions with the glorious Qur’an that is the only book that has existed for over a million yet still in its pure pristine purity, unrevised, untampered with, historically and scientifically accurate!
He also forgot that the word “BIBLE” is not found in the Bible itself unlike the Qur’an that is written in several verses of the Qur’an. If you claim God gave you the Bible without giving it a name and we claim God gave us the Qur’an that God named, you should consider what to believe in. Many Christians do not know the meaning of the word “BIBLE’ and which language is it. The word bible comes from the Greek word BIBLOS and it means Collections of Books written by Many different People(historians), when you combine all the writings, it is called Bible, It can be a Biography of Person or Ancient History written by Men, not from God. In summary, the Qur’an knows nothing like Bible, even the Book you call Bible doesn’t know the word because it’s not inside the Bible.
In Mr. Paul’s fourth paragraph, he wrote that “The Qur’an talks more about Jesus Christ than Mohammad” which is very TRUE. The Qur’an talked about ‘Eesa (AS) more than prophet Muhammad (pbuh) because God was the One talking to Muhammad (pbuh), God was telling Muhammad (pbuh) about Jesus Christ and how People misunderstood Jesus Christ. How do you expect God to talk about Muhammad (pbuh) after it’s the same God revealing what to say him?. When reading the Old Testament, have you found the name of Jesus Christ throughout the Old Testament? Obviously NO!!! So why, what happened???
The name of Jesus is mentioned twenty-five times in the Qur’an whereas the name of Muhammad(pbuh) is mentioned only four times, but when going through the Qur’an you will come across the word “SAY” in several verses. Who is that person to say??? That’s Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Anywhere you see the word “Say” in the Qur’an, it is mostly referring to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the word “SAY”appeared in the Qur’an about 332 times.The Qur’an, as Muslims believe is God’s revelation to Muhammad(pbuh) in direct speech addressing all of us, his followers, relating to us, him, and the stories of the Prophets before him. If I were to be talking to Person A and relaying the biography of Person B to him, would not I mention the latter more than the former? Easier example, if I were to be narrating the story of Abraham Lincoln to my grandchildren would not the name of Abraham Lincoln be mentioned more in my speech to them than their own names?
The argument that the name of Jesus is mentioned more times in the Quran than the name of Muhammad is irrelevant since it is God narrating to prophet Muhammad(pbuh) the stories of Jesus, Moses, Abraham and other prophets. Pharaoh is mentioned in the Quran than Muhammad and Jesus (pbuh) combined. Pharaoh is mentioned seventy-four times. More than the names of three prophets of Islam. Does that mean anything at all? Even Shaytan (the devil) was mentioned more!!!
His Mother that he said was a devout Muslim encouraged him to join the Shiite sect???
A devout Muslim use charms???
What verses are the Satanic verses??
Mr Paul said he was a disciple of Sheikh Gumi, but Sheikh Gumi was never a Shiite.
Something that people like Paul Bayero need to know is that the Qur’an is not Muhammad’s word rather God’s word. Many people know about the background of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) even before the revelation of the Quran. Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) was created in order to serve God and to teach the world how to get Closer to God, that’s the essence of the Qur’an not to narrate to you his background, If you need to know about his background, go and read the book “SIRATUN NABIY” bu the Qur’an is just God’s words revealed to Muhammad (pbuh) not what the prophet knew already
The Life of Jesus Christ was recorded in the Qur’an over 1400 years ago, and we can boldly say that the Christians do not know what happened on the very day Jesus Christ was born even his miracles that they know are few. If you want to know more about Jesus Christ from his birth, you have to go through the Qur’an. Even the Bible says that “not all the Miracles of Jesus are in this Book(Bible)” in JOHN 20:30.
Mr. Paul Joined a Jihadist Group as he claimed and they have killed as many Christian as possible in 1987, despite the Qur’anic verses in several chapters that talks about religious freedom and that no one should abuse or kill adherents of other religions. The Qur’an does not instruct Muslims to take innocent lives. In fact, the right to Religion that the Quran gave to People is nowhere to be found in other religious Books. The Qur’an said in Chapter 6 verse 108;
“And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah”
Also the Qur’an makes it clear in Qu’ran chapter 5 verse 32;
“Who ever kills a soul ,it’s as if he has killed the whole of mankind and also whoever save a soul it is as if he has save the whole of Mankind”
Furthermore, the Qur’an gives the right to religion and the highest form of Religious tolerance in Qur’an chapter 109 verse 6;
“For you is your religion, and for me is my religion”
Also in Qur’an chapter 2 verse 256, it says;
“No compulsion in Religion”
In summary of the above paragraph,
“Islam is against taking innocent lives. Anyone who kills people in the name of Islam or take insulting adherents of other faiths as his priority, such is not a good Muslim and is totally ignorant about Islam”
We do not know where Paul got his killing doctrine from. Mr. Paul said that, in Islam, nothing like forgiveness is taught, we then check the Qur’an and see what is in Qur’an 2 verse 199, Qur’an 7 verse 155, Qur’an 11 verse 61, Qur’an 11:52, Qur’an 46:31…
Qur’an 45:14 Says, [O Muhammad], to those who have believed that they [should] forgive those who expect not the days of Allaah [i.e., of His retribution] so that He may recompense a people for what they used to earn.
These are just few verses from a whole lot that talks about forgiveness in the Qur’an.
” I remember that in the mosque in those days, our teachers taught us to pray against Christians that Christians should be destroyed. But in Christianity I discovered that the prayer of Christians towards Muslims all over the world is not for them to be destroyed but for God to show them the light, so that they would join hands together to worship God in the true and acceptable manner. You see the difference.”
Paul Bayero is a pathetic liar. He is not an example of a good Muslim as he wrote in his “fakeversion story”. There is no mosque of Allah where we pray for Christians to be destroyed. It is on Paul Bayero to provide the mosque that prays for the destruction of Christians!
“I hated to have anything to do with Christians, even my wife never wanted to see anything that had to do with Christianity. After the Christians I killed in 1987 during the riot, sometimes I would become confused, blood would be running in my head because of the lives of people that I took, thinking that God would never forgive me.”
The government needs to do something if Paul Bayero is real. He is a murderer and he denied not rather exposed himself.
He went on to call Jesus King of Kings. In the Bible, Jesus was not called a King But a Prince ( Book of Isaiah 9:6). How can a prince be king while the King is alive and will never die. Mr Paul said Jesus is Lord of Lords but Jesus said in the Bible Book of Mark 12:29 that there is another Lord greater than him. Mr Paul can be seen clearly Going against the Word of Jesus Christ. IS THAT A GOOD CHRISTIAN?????
The Bible says in Isaiah 43:10-11,
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me.
I, even I, am the Lord,
and apart from me there is no savior.
If God stated that He is the ONLY LORD AND SAVIOUR, on whose authority is Paul Bayero calling Jesus the Lord of Lords?!
Mr Paul said that Jesus appeared to Him and that brings to mind the story of Paul of Tarsus in the Bible, the Person that authorized about 13 Books of the New testament . This Paul’s event occurred after Paul claimed that Jesus appeared to him and spoke to him on the way to Damascus (Acts 9:3-8). Surprisingly, he suddenly became the chief spokesman in the name of Jesus, claiming that he was appointed by Jesus to preach to the world (Acts 9:3-6).
Christians have always claimed to have had encounter with Jesus. They tell us that he appears to them yet Christians cannot agree on the true image of Jesus Christ. They cannot take selfies with him when he appears to them or teach them how to worship God.
Watch false apparition of Jesus…
Mr. Paul said The Holy Spirit taught him how to speak English and how to write, forgetting to teach him and his People how to Serve and worship God in Unity which should be the priority. Paul Bayero is a terrible liar. Jesus did not speak English Language, if he wanted to teach someone, it should have been Aramaic, the language of Jesus. Jesus appeared to him and he cannot ask to be taught which church to go, which of the Bibles are correct etc!
Mr Paul and his brothers are eager to jump to the book of John 14:6;
“I am the way the truth and the Life no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”
During the time of Abraham, Abraham was the truth the way and the life. During the time of David, David was the truth the way and the life, All prophets of God are the way, Including Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Say, “This is my way; I invite to Allah with insight, I and
those who follow me. And exalted is Allah; and I am not of
those who associate others with Him.”
Mr Paul said Fatima asked Muhammad(pbuh) in the Qur’an about Salvation and he told her he does not know.This is not in the Qur’an but it is worthy to note that Prophet Muhammad had no knowledge of the unseen likewise Jesus except what is revealed.
The Bible says Jesus said in Matthew 24:36;
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
Allah says in Qur’an 7:158;
Say [O Muhammad]: “O mankind! Verily, I am an apostle of God to all of you, [sent by Him] unto whom the dominion over the heavens and the earth belongs! There is no deity save Him; He [alone] grants life and deals death!” Believe, then, in God and His Apostle-the unlettered Prophet who believes in God and His words-and follow him, so that you might find guidance!
Mr Paul is praying to God to give him the Land of Muslims forgetting about the Great Nation that God Promised Ishmael in the Book of Genesis 21:13-18 which is the Muslim world. The fastest growing religion in the world.
