the Bible and Qur’an 

Complied by Harold Driver  






     Can you remember the last time you watched a serious news program that did not report some Islamic militants who were plotting to kill, wanted to kill, or had killed innocent men, women and children in the name of God? A holy war they claim, drive the infidels (unbelievers of their religion) out of their lands.  

The concept of “if we leave them alone” they will leave us alone is faulty thinking.  It takes two to make peace, but only one to make war and a war has been declared against the Lord and His Church. They call it Jihad (holy war), we call it the murder of innocent men, women and children, and rightly so.  

God in his infinite wisdom has placed the right and the power to protect the citizens of a country in the hands of civil government (Romans 13:1-7). The armed forces of the United States can, and are, fighting a physical war to prevent another attack upon our home soil. Their courage may save thousands of innocent lives from those who are bent upon our destruction. 

Now having said that, there is another battle raging that members of the Lord’s church are very much involved in; namely, the battle for the hearts and minds of men, and we have a weapon that is mightier than any carnal weapon.  

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the __________ of our warfare are not _______, but mighty through _____ to the pulling down of strongholds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that __________ itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the ____________ of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:3-5). 

The purpose of this study is to show that the Muslim religion is a false religion that is incapable of saving even a single soul (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Their faith stands upon an uninspired book, written by a false prophet who, like many before/after him, claims to have spoken for God (Jeremiah 23:16-17; 21; 25). We do not say that to be unkind, but because it is true.  Since it is true, it needs to be said no matter whose feelings get hurt (II Corinthians 13:8). The following is a brief outline of our study: 

  1. A brief history of Islam.
  2. The Muslim religion fosters hate and violence, despite their denial.
  3. The Muslim religion denies the Son of God.
  4. A false religion is neither good nor noble.
  5. Different Doctrines Compared to the Bible.
  6. What can be done by the Lord’s church?


Islam is one of the major religions of the world, embracing an estimated one-fifth of the total world population. There is estimated between 7 and 8 million in the United States, with more coming in everyday (80,000 every year). 

The Arabic term Islam literally means “surrender,” or “submission.”  Islam’s believers accept surrender to the will of Allah (Arabic word of God).  Allah is viewed as a unique God—creator, sustainer, and restorer of the world.  The will of God, to which man is to submit, is made known through the Qur’an (Koran), revealed to his messenger Muhammad.  Muhammad, it is claimed was the last of the great prophets.  The basic belief of Islam is expressed in the shadadah, the Muslim confession of faith, “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is the prophet of God.” 

Islam teaches that their history goes back to the time of Abraham, and that the promised son was Ishmael of Hagar, and not Isaac of Sarah.  In Genesis 16: 11-12 we read, “An angel of Jehovah said unto her (Hagar), Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son.  And thou shalt call his name Ishmael, because Jehovah has heard thy affliction.  And he shall be as a wild donkey among men.  His hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell over against all his brethren.” 

Out of the child Ishmael, of Abraham and Hagar, came the people known today as the Arabs. They are part Hebrew and Egyptian. History records that the Arab people have fought fierce battles over the centuries with their own brethren and neighbors. 

The word Islam is derived from an Arabic root which denotes both “peace” and “submission”. It is defined literally as “peaceful submission to the will of God – without resistance”. 

Muhammad, Islam’s founding prophet, was born into one the leading tribes in the central Arabian city of Mecca in 570 A.D.  His father died before he was born and his mother died when he was six.  His grandfather cared for him until he was nine and then his uncle.  As a young man, Muhammad entered the service of a wealthy widow, fifteen years older than he named Khadija who put him in charge of her caravan trade. When he was twenty-five, Muhammad married Khadija.  He had several wives over his life time (one as young as six years of age). 

During his life time he came in contact with Arabian paganism, Judaism, and apostate Christianity, and that one of the chief gods of Mecca was an Arabian god known as ALLAH. He also knew that some believed that there was only one true God.


When he was about forty (40) years of age, Muhammad began to frequent a cave at Mount Hira in the vicinity of Mecca.  It was there, in something of a trance or semi-conscious state, that he claims to have begun receiving revelations from Allah through the angel Gabriel.  These “revelations” were first shared with his wife, then with close friends and Meccans at large.  Those who believed began to memorize and record Muhammad’s words.  It is said that Muhammad could not read nor write, so, they collected their records and remembrances into the book known as the Koran/Qu’ran after his death in 632 A.D. 

Muhammad and his followers apparently suffered much persecution in Mecca itself from the established religious leaders, but Muhammad’s following nonetheless grew and spread in other cities of Arabia.  One such city, located 280 miles north of Mecca, was Medina.  The leaders of this city invited Muhammad to come and mediate between warring factions in the city.  Having sent a number of his followers ahead, Muhammad escaped to Medina in 622 A.D.  This trip, called the Hiijra or “Flight” by Muslims, marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar.  Muhammad soon gained total control of Medina.  By 630 A.D., Muhammad ruled over armies in a vast area of Arabia and was able to re-enter Mecca as a conquering hero.  From about the age of 52 until is death at 62, Muhammad raided some sixty cities to spread his “religion of peace” until it controlled all of Arabia and some of the surrounding areas.  Islam reached it peak, land wise, under three empires, the Ottoman Empire, which fell in 1922, was the last. 

Mecca is the chief city of Islam.  It is there that a building stands that Muslims say was built by Abraham and Ishmael. They call the building “The Kaaba.” 

The Palestinian question today is the major problem with the Arabs.  During the Second World War, England asked the Arabs to help them in fighting the Germans, and promised the Arabs that a Palestinian State would be set up after the war. This promise was not kept by England.  Instead, they set up a Jewess State, which upset the Arabs to no end, and talked the United States into helping them.  By 1947/48 the Jewish State of Israel was set up and war broke out between the Arabs (Palestinians) and the Jews with England and the United States helping the Jews.  Because of this the Muslims look at the United States as the “Great Satan”. 

The Jews look at the land as theirs because God told Abraham (Genesis 12) that He would give it to his (Abraham) people, which He did (see book of Joshua).  The Muslims look at the land as theirs because they claim to have had control of if for over 1500 years.

Muslims claim that their religion is non-violent; however, experience denies that claim, as does the book they follow. Moreover, one does not have to be very observant to notice that the killing is not limited to non-Muslims, for they torture and murder even those who profess to follow the same religion. Now, you may be inclined to ask “why?” I believe that there are at least three reasons that help to answer that question:

1.      Greed and power are the driving force behind this base religion (that is why they fight and kill each other).

2.      They have little or no regard for other human life.

3.      God, through his inspired word, has given us an insight into why the Muslim world is beset by violence. “…Evil shall hunt the __________ man to overthrow him” (Psalms 140:11).  Their violent behavior breeds evil. “For all they that take the ________ shall perish with the ____________” (Matthew 26:52). 

The Muslims use the Qur’an to justify their murderous behavior, and rightly so, for the Qur’an gives them permission to use violence. The following is a sample of those verses. The Qur’an uses the word “Sura” for each chapter or portion of the book. 

Violence with God’s approval 

Muslims justify their indiscriminate murder by issuing a warning first.

“Never did we destroy a population that had not a term decreed and assigned before. Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it” (Sura 15:4-5).


“God did indeed fulfill His promise to you when ye with His permission were about to annihilate your enemy, until ye flinched and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed it after He brought you in sight (of the booty) which ye covet...” (Sura 3:152). 

“Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil: So fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of Satan” (Sura 4:76). 

“Apostle! Rouse the believers to fight. If there are twenty among you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding” (Sura 8:65). 

“Soon shall we shall cast fear into the heart of the unbelievers…” (Sura 3:151). 

“Of a truth ye are stronger (than they) because of the terror in their hearts, (sent) by God. This is because they are men devoid of understanding” (Sura 59:13). 

“And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith” (Sura 2:191). 

Too many times have we watched the last terrible moments of bound and blindfolded Americans before they were beheaded by those who claim to follow this godless religion (II John 9-11). Notice the following verse: “Therefore when you meet the unbelievers (in fight), smite them at their necks; at length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are you commanded): but if it had been God’s will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others, but those who are slain in the way of God, He will never let their deeds be lost” (Sura 47:4). 

“A declaration of immunity from God and His apostle, to those pagans with whom ye have contracted mutual alliances for four months. But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them” (Sura 9:1-2; 5).  

“The punishment of those who wage war against God and His prophet is: execution or crucifixion, cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the hereafter” (Sura 5:36). 

The Bible says in Matt. 5:44 “But I say unto you, “__________ your enemies, __________ them that curse you, do ____________ to them that hate you, and _________ for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”  

Romans 12:19-21 “Dearly beloved, _____________ not yourselves, but rather give _________unto wrath: for it is written, ____________ is mine, I will _________, saith the Lord.  Therefore if thine ________ hunger, ________ him; if he _________ give him ________: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his ______. Be not _____________ of _______ but overcome ________ with _________.” 

Promises given to those who kill and are killed 

“Can you expect from us (any fate) other than one of two glorious things – (Martyrdom or victory)? But we can expect for you either that God will send His punishment from Himself, or by our hands. So wait (expectant); we too wait with you” (Sura 9:52). 

Speaking of those who are nearer to unbelief than to faith. “(They are) the ones that say, (of their brethren slain), while they themselves sit (at ease): “If only they had listened to us, they would not have been slain”. Say: “Avert death from your own selves, if ye speak the truth. Think not of those who are slain in God’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the Presence of the Lord; They rejoice in the bounty provided by God: And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve” (Sura 3:168-170). 

“God hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of paradise): They fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the law, the gospel, and the Quran: And who is more faithful to His covenant than God? Then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: That is the achievement supreme” (Sura 9:111). 


“Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of God, and his word, which he bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in God and His apostle. Say not “Trinity”: desist: It will be better for you: for God is One God: Glory be to Him: (Far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in heaven and on earth. And enough is God as a disposer of affairs” (Sura 4:171). 

“They blaspheme who say that “God is Christ the son of Mary…” (Sura 5:75). 

“Christ the son of Mary was no more than an apostle…” (Sura 5:78). 

“The Jews call “Uzair a son of God and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the truth!” (Sura 9:30). 

“They say, “God hath begotten a son!” – Glory be to Him! He is self-sufficient! His are all things in the heavens and on earth! No warrant have ye for this! Say ye about God what ye know not?” (Sura 10:68). 

“They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a trinity: for there is no god except One God” (Sura 5:76). 

“That they say (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of God” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for a surety they killed him not” (Sura 4:157). 

The seriousness of this should escape no true believer. To deny the Son is to deny the Father: “That all men should honour the _____, even as they honour the ____________. He that honoureth not the _____ honoureth not the ________ which hath sent him” (John 5:23). “Whosoever ________the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that ____________ the Son hath the Father also”

(I John 2:23). “He that ________ me hateth the ____________ also” (John 15:23). 

To deny the crucifixion is a blatant attempt to dismiss the power of God (Rom. 1:4).

  1. How was the love of God demonstrated for all men? ____________________________ (Romans 5:6; 8; 10; I John 4:9).
  2.  Jesus, by the grace of God, tasted of death for the benefit of whom? ______ (Hebrews 2:9).
  3. The atoning blood of Christ, shed for what? _____________________ (Matthew 26:28; Hebrews 10:10; 12; Revelation 1:5).
  4. The blood of Christ purchased what? ____________________________ (Acts 20:28).
    1. Reconciliation unto God is in the what? _____________ (Ephesians 2:12-16).
  5.  Christ was declared to be the Son of God by the what? _____________ (Romans 1:4).
  6. Christ was raised from the dead to _________ at God’s right hand (Acts 2:30; Romans 15:12).
  7. Christians have a lively hope because of what? ______________________ (I Peter 1:3).
  8. The _________, ___________ and ______________ of Christ are inseparably connected to salvation (I Corinthians 15:1-4).


Mohammad puts words in the mouth of Abraham and Jesus in order to support his false religion: 

The supposed prayer of Abraham and Ishmael to make of us Muslims - please keep in mind that Abraham lived some two thousand years before Christ, long before the false prophet Muhammad and his made-up religion were ever heard of, or thought of!   

“And remember Abraham and Ishmael raised the foundation of the house (with this prayer): “Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us: For thou art the All-Hearing, the All-knowing. Our Lord! Make of us Muslims, bowing to thy (will), and of our progeny a people Muslims, bowing to Thy (will); and show us our places for the celebration of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in mercy); for thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful” (Sura 2:128). 

Jesus made it clear that his words would be the standard of judgment; “He that rejecteth ____, and receiveth not _______________, hath one that judgeth him: the _______that I have ______, the same shall _________ him in the last day” (John 12:48).

Mohammad, in his effort to establish his own credibility, has Jesus pointing a finger to him. 

“And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: “O children of Israel! I am the apostle of God (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving glad tidings of an apostle to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad (or Muhammad – A. YUSUF ALI). But when he came to, them with clear signs, they said, “This is evident sorcery!” (Sura 61:6). 

Bible: I John 4:1, 14 “Beloved, believe _____ every spirit, but ______ the spirits whether they are of ______: because many __________ ___________ are gone out into the world….And we have ________ and do __________ that the ____________ sent the ________ to be the Saviour of the __________.”

Bible: Gal. 1:8-9 “But though we, or an ____________ from heaven, _______ any other ______unto you than that _________ we have _______________ unto you, let him be _____________. As we said before, so say I now again, If ________ man ___________ any other ____________ unto you than that we have _____________, let him be accursed.”Bible: Jude 11 “______ unto them, for they have gone in the _______ of _______...”                                


General Classification of Food.

This teaching comes from the Shariah law, which tells Muslims how to live and interpret the Qur’an.

Food is divided into two primary categories by Islamic law. HALAL food is “that which can be lawfully eaten” by all Muslims. HARAM is the word used for “anything which is forbidden” and therefore, it is used in reference to all food which cannot be eaten under Islamic law (Shariah).Some foods that are forbidden (if eaten the wrath of Allah will come on them):                                   


Pork (cannot eat the meat, but can take of the fat)                                   

The meat of carnivorous animals (lion, tiger, etc.)                                   

Meat from donkeys, monkeys, and elephants                                   

Any animal that has died naturally or has been killed by  some wild animal                                   


Drugs (except for medical reasons)                                   

Zebra (some teach that this of okay and some don’t) 

Most vegetables and other animals are to be eaten, if they are fixed the right way.  All animals must have their throat cut (with a very shape knife) and the blood drained out.  Killed any other way is forbidden.

No Muslim is allowed to eat from any thing that is made of gold or silver (bowls, plates, knifes, forks, etc.).

They can only eat with their right hand. 

The Bible teaches in Acts 15:29 “That ye ___________ from meats offered to ________, and from ____________, and from things _________________, and from fornication: _________ which if ye keep yourself, ye shall do _______. Fare ye well.” 

I Tim.4:2-4 “Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;  Forbidding to marry, and ______________to ____________ from ________, which God hath created to be _____________ with thanksgiving of them which ____________ and ________ the ___________. For _________ creature of God is good, and _____________ to be refused, if it be ____________ with ________________.” 

Muslim men are not allowed to wear silk material (they will be allowed this in heaven).Men can not wear gold.Women can wear silk. 

Islam is a religion that denies the completeness of the Bible 

God made it clear that the Bible (Old Testament and New Testament) is both inspired and complete to meet every spiritual need.

“All scripture is given by the ______________ of God, and is profitable for ___________, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in________________________: That the man of God may be perfect, _________________furnished unto every good work” (II Timothy 3:16-17). 

“According as his divine power hath given unto us ______________ that pertain unto ______ and ______________________; through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). 

Moreover, God has forbidden the addition, subtraction or modification of his word. “Ye shall not _______ unto the word which I command you; neither shall ye diminish _________ from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you” (Deuteronomy 4:2). 

“Add thou _____ unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:6). 

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall ______ unto these things, God will ______ unto him the plagues that are written in this ________. And if any man shall take _______ from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take ________ his part out of the book of _________, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19). 

“But though we, or an _________ from heaven, preach any other _______ unto you than that which we have _____________ unto you, let him be__________________. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach ______ other __________ unto you than that ye have received, let him be _______________” (Galatians 1:8-9). 

“Whosoever transgresseth and _________ not in the doctrine of Christ, _______ not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of _________, he hath both the __________ and the ______. If there come any unto you, and bring not this ______________, receive him not into your house, neither bid him ______ speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his _________ deeds” (II John 9-11). 

Mohammad states that God gave him a message in addition to the Bible. More than that, the Qur’an would have us believe that the prophet Mohammad is the true light; to resist him is a supreme disgrace, and accepting the Qur’an is a must (Sura 9:63; 2:88-90). 

Is the Qur’an inspired?

Of course you recognize that if the Bible is true, the Qur’an is not, and if the Qur’an is correct, the Bible is not. Even if I did not have the Bible to prove the Qur’an false, I would know that God is not the author of it by reading the Qur’an, and its absurd description of the creation. 

“Has there not been over man a long period of time, when he was nothing (not even) mentioned? Verily we created man from a drop of mingled sperm (the seed of a man and woman yet uncreated?), in order to try him: So we gave him (the gifts) of hearing and sight” (Sura 76:1-2).  

“Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled (without purpose)? Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)? Did he become a leech-like clot, then did God make and fashion him in due proportion, and made of him two sexes, male and female” (Sura 75:36-39)? 

“We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that we may manifest our power to you…” (Sura 22:5). 

Bible: Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make _______ in our ________, and after _______ likeness: …”           

Genesis 2:7, 21-22 “And the Lord God formed _______ of the _______ of the ________,and breathed into _______ nostrils the breath of _________; and  ________ became a living soul. …And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon _________ and he slept: and he took one the ______ _______, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the ______, which the Lord God had taken from man, _______ he a _________, and brought _____ unto the ______.”  

Is Mohammad the prophet? 

Is Mohammad the prophet promised by God in Deuteronomy 18:15-18, as the Muslims claim? Well, not only do I know that he is not, I can prove it.  

The Old Testament was addressed primarily to a single nation. That nation has a traceable line from the beginning of human history. Take a Bible journey with me that will set the matter before us. God, in His wisdom, provides a lineage that will enable you and me to trace this point from Adam to Moses. The first ten generations are Adam – Seth – Enos – Cainan – Mahalaleeel – Jared – Enoch – Methuselah – Lamech – Noah. During the days of Noah, some 1556 years from the creation, God said enough (Genesis 6:5-6), and all life ended with the exception of those God wanted to carry over. All human life traces back to the sons of Noah - Shem, Ham and Japheth.

  1. The sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Phut and Canaan. The descendents of Noah through Ham settled in Africa. Cush means Ethiopia, Mizraim – Egypt, Phut – Libya.
  2. The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras. The descendents of Noah through Japheth settled in Western Europe, by these were the Isles of the Gentiles divided (Genesis 10:5).
  3. The second ten generations. Shem: Arphaxad, Salah, Eber, Peleg, Reu, Serug, Nahor, Terah, Abraham.

That brings us to Genesis chapter 12 and a promise given to Abraham (Genesis 12:3; 22:18). Twenty-five years later, Isaac is born (Genesis 21:5), and the same promise is repeated in Isaac (Genesis 26:4). Some sixty years later, Jacob and Esau are born to Isaac and Rebekah - twins divided by parental favoritism (Genesis 25:23; 28).  

Jacob (Israel) would become the father of the twelve tribes of Israel (Genesis 32:28; 46:9-24), and through him the promise continues (Genesis 28:14). Jacob brought his family down into Egypt and stood before Pharaoh at the age of one hundred and thirty (Genesis 47:9). Now, who went down into Egypt? The children of Israel! Two hundred and fifteen years go by, which for the most part were spent in cruel bondage (Exodus 1:8-13), until God determined that it was time for Moses to deliver the people from Egyptian bondage (Exodus 3). Ten plagues later, the nation of Israel comes out of Egyptian bondage (Exodus 12). Again, who went down into Egypt? The children of Israel. Who came out of Egypt? Why, the same ones that went down into Egypt. The children of Israel - the descendants of Abraham through Jacob (Israel)! 

We are ready for two plain passages that show to which nation the Law of Moses was given: “The Lord our God made a ___________ with ___ in Horeb. The Lord made _______this covenant with our __________, but with ____, who are all of us alive this day” (Deuteronomy 5:2-3). 

“Remember you the Law of Moses my servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all _________, with statutes and judgments” (Malachi 4:4).

To what people was the Law given? The nation of Israel. Anyone else?  

Now, to the promise given in Deuteronomy 18:15; 18 “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a ___________ from the midst of thee (the nation of Israel), of thy brethren, like unto _________; unto him ye shall hearken”. “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in ____ mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall ______________ him”. 

I would hate to think we could not understand that. The Prophet that was promised in Deuteronomy 18:15; 19 would arise from among the nation of Israel (He would be a Jew), the same ones Moses delivered by God’s mighty hand and brought to Mount Sinai to receive the Law. There were Jews in the first century who knew that Jesus was that prophet (John 6:14), but more than that Peter, speaking by inspiration of the Holy Spirit (John 16:13), declared that Jesus was the Prophet promised by God (Acts 3:18-22). 



Sura 11:42-43 states that one son of Noah was lost in the flood of Genesis. “So the Ark floated with them on the waves (Towering) like mountains, and Noah called out to his son, who had separated himself (from the rest): “O my son! Embark with us, and be not with the Unbelievers!” The son replied: “I will betake myself to some mountain: It will save me from the water.” Noah said: “This day nothing can save, from the Command of God, any but those on who He hath mercy!’ – And the waves and the son was among those overwhelmed in the Flood.”  

Bible: Genesis 6:10 “And Noah begat ________sons, ______, __________, and ___________.”

Sura 4:38 “Men stand superior to women in that God had preferred some of them over others…But those (wives) whose perverseness ye fear, admonish them and remove them into bedchambers and beat them.” 

Bible: Eph. 5:25, 28, 29 “Husbands, _____ your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;…So ought men to _____ their wives as their own _______. He that loveth his _______ loveth himself.  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and ______________ it, even as the Lord the church.”

Bible: 1 Peter 3:7 “Likewise ye husbands, dwell with them according to ________________, giving ___________ unto the _______, as unto the __________ vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that _______ prayers be not ___________.”           


Muslim men are allowed 4 wives at a time.

Divorce granted by saying, “I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you.” (This cannot be said any other way, or jokingly).

A male Muslim, that divorces his wife, cannot remarry her until she has been married to another man and divorced by him.

Temporary marriages are allowed among some of the Muslims (Shi’ites mainly).  This is where a contract is signed for a set time between the man and woman.  When the contract runs out the marriage is over.  The husband, who wants to have a temporary marriage, while permanently married, has to get his wife’s permission.A Muslim woman cannot marry a non-Muslim. 


Hebrews 13:4 “_____________ is honourable in _______, and the bed ___________:…”

Matthew 19:4-6, 9 “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the __________made them __________ and ____________, And said, “For this cause shall a _________ leave father and mother, and shall ___________ to his _________: and they twain shall be _____flesh.”… “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his _________, except it be for _________________, and shall marry another, committeth _____________: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit _____________.”

Romans 7:1-3 “Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the ______,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?  For the woman which hath an _____________ is bound by the law to her _____________ so _________ as he __________; but it the husband be ________, she is loosed fro the law of her ___________. So then, if, while her ___________ liveth, she shall be married to another ________, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her ____________ be _________, she is free from that law; so that she is no ______________, though she be married to another man.”

God held Mount Sinai over the heads of the Israelites to scare them into obedience (Sura 7:171).

God turned some of the Israelites into apes and pigs because of their disobedience (Sura 5:60).

God killed thousands of Israelites and raised them from the dead in Moses’ time (Sura 2:55, 56).

Abraham was a Muslim (Sura 3:67).

Jesus speaking from the cradle, Sura 19:30 “He said: “I am indeed A servant of God: He hath given me Revelation and made me a Prophet; v.33 “So peace is on me The day I was born, The day that I die, And the day that I Shall be raised up To life (again)! v.34 “Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: it is a statement Of truth, about which They (vainly) dispute.”

Some of the above mentioned were called prophets in the Bible, but the writer of Hebrews said of Christ, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the ___________ by the ___________, Hath in these _______ _______ spoken unto us by ______ _______, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the _______________ of his ___________, and the _____________ image of his ___________, and upholding all things by the word of his ________, when he had by himself purged our _______, sat down on the _______ hand of the _____________ on high; Being made so much better that the _________, as he hath by ________________ obtained a more excellent _________ than they.” (Heb. 1:1-4). 


Jibril (Gabriel)








And the two scribes who record one’s good and bad deeds, each of who, is called a“present observer.”

These two angels stand at judgment and tell Allah your good deed and your bad deed. If the good is more than your bad you get heaven. HELL Sura 7:41

“They shall have a bed on the floor of Hell and coverings of fire, this is how We reward them.”Sura 13:5

“Those who deny will wear collars and chains, yokes tying their hands to their necks; they will be inmates of Hell…They will witness Our exemplary punishments! …”Sura 21:39

“If only the unbelievers knew they will not be able to ward off the fire from their faces, nor from their backs!”Sura 40:72

“…in the boiling fetid fluid then in the Fire shall they be burned.”Sura 47:15

“Those who shall dwell forever in the Fire are given to drink boiling water that tears their bowels to pieces, and cutting their intestines to shreds.” 

The above is not all they teach about hell, but I believe you get the point. 


Matt. 5:22 “…but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of ______ ______.”

Matt, 10:28 “And fear not them which kill the ______, but are not able to kill the _______: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both ______ and ________ in ________.”

Mark 9:43-48 “And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed then having two hands to go into ________, into the _________ that __________ shall be ____________: Where their worm dieth not, and the _______ is not ________. …cast into _______, into the ______ that _________ shall be __________:…and the _______ is not ___________. …, than having two eyes to be cast into ________ ________: …and the _______ is not ______________.”

The teaching of Jesus about hell strongly emphasized the aspect of eternal darkness. Look at Matt. 25:30 “And cast ye the unprofitable servant into __________ __________: there shall be _____________ and ____________ of ___________.”

Matt. 13:41,42 “The Son of man shall send forth his _______, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and them that do iniquity, and shall _______ them into the ____________ of ________: there shall be the __________ and the ________ of teeth.”

2 Peter 2:4 “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to _______, and delivered them into chains of _______________, to be reserved unto judgment…”

Rev. 20:14, 15 “And death and hell were cast into the _______ of _______. This is the second__________. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the _______ of _________.” 

I believe you can see the difference between the Muslim doctrine on Hell and the Bible doctrine. 


Sura 37:42-49 “Fruits (Delights); and they (Shall enjoy) honour and dignity, In Gardens of Felicity, Facing each other on Thrones (of dignity): Round will be passed To them a Cup From a clear-flowing fountain, Crystal-white, of a taste Delicious to those Who drink (thereof), Free from headiness; Nor will they suffer Intoxication therefrom, And besides them, will be Chaste women, restraining Their glances, with big eyes (of wonder and beauty). As if they were (Delicate) eggs closely guarded.”Sura 47:15

“…wine; … rivers of honey, … all kinds of fruit…”Sura 52:20

“They will recline (with ease) On Thrones (of dignity) Arranged in ranks; And We shall join them To companions, with beautiful Big and lustrous eyes.”Sura 52:22

“And We shall bestow On them, of fruit and meat, Anything they shall desire.”Sura 52:24

“Around about them will serve, (Devoted) to them, Youths (handsome) as Pearls Well-guarded.”

Muslim men are taught that if they die in service to Allah, they will be reward in heaven with 72 big eyed virgins. 


John 14:2 “In my Father’s house are many __________: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a ________ for you.”

1 Corinthians 2:9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not ________, nor ear __________, neither have entered into the ________ of man, the things which God hath ____________ for them that love him.”

The Bible does not give us a physical view of Heaven.  However, we do understand that certain things will not be there like: moon, sun, seas, pain, tears, sorrow, crying, marriage nor death.All the former things will pass away (Read Rev. 21:4).
