in response to reader comment: To Abarbane: Why do non-Muslims fool themselves about Islam

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Nov 12, 2006 at 18:22

Nuray, your concept that Islam is the last version of the religion of Abraham is ridiculous. Muslims are making this proposal in order to authenticate a belief system that has nothing in common with Christianity or Judaism.

I've studied the Bible, Old and New Testament for thirty years and am reasonably familiar with the content. I've also studied the Qur'an for five years, and have read three Qur'ans translated by three different authors and continue referencing these Qur'ans on a regular basis. By the way, I've just purchased my latest Qur'an; "The Qur'an", by Abdullah Yusuf Ali.

Furthermore, I've read at least a dozen books on the history of Muslim nations and Islam. I therefore state unequivocally, that there is nothing common between the Bible and the Qur'an other than these books are about two different deities. The simplest difference is that God resides in heaven and Allah lives in dilapidated Ka'aba. The foolishness of your ongoing allegation that Adam, Abraham, Isaac and other Old Testament personalities were Muslims should cease as it doesn't persuade anyone other than Muslims. In reality, you may have a better chance of convincing the world that lions from the jungle of Africa, are no more dangerous that kittens, and would make wonderful house pets. On the other hand if you insist on alleging that there is similarity between Christianity and Islam, give us some real examples. And please don't follow Sohail's nonsensical example of quoting Biblical scriptures and insisting that they are related to the Qur'an.

And yes, Islam is the fastest growing religion, and that is because it is compulsory in Muslim countries. If you want to learn about Islam; read the Qur'an, the Hadiths and the history of Islam, for the truth is not to be found on Islamic websites.
