Interesting article. I just wanted to point out a tiny error in your article, under the Historical category. You wrote that "Moses and Jesus introduced mistakes into the Word of God". However this is incorrect because the message they brought as believed by Muslims, was correct. It was the people to whom it was revealed and to those who continued to transmit the message( people from the time of Moses and Jesus (pbuh) ) to the later generations that added, deleted as well as modified the original scriptures and caused the adulteration of the original message. The message has always been the same, but since the scriptures were tampered with, Allah sent Muhammad (pbuh) to bring back the word of Allah once again, to confirm the teachings that were brought to the people by Moses peace be upon him and Jesus peace be upon him as well as the previous prophets,only this time in the final revelation Allah promises to preserve this book from any corruption. This is why not a single verse of the Quran, not even a single letter has changed since it's revelation to Muhammad (pbuh). Islam is the religion that worships God in the most monotheistic way, by not associating partners or deities or saying that God is anything like His creations. Islam teaches to worship the Creator, not His creations.
