Every Christian involved in dialogue and witnessing to Muslims needs to know and understand the basic tenets of Islam. This web-site will help you to understand how Islam developed; give you an understanding of the life of Muhammad the prophet of Islam and help you to grasp the importance of the Quran and its theology.

Becoming familiar with the Quran

In order to understand Islam Christians need to read the Quran to find out what it teaches. Those engaged in Muslim evangelism and are coming to the Quran for the first time will find that they are looking at an entirely different kind of literature than the Bible.

Becoming familiar with the Hadith

Apart from the Quran, the Hadith is undoubtedly the greatest authority in Islam and needs to be evaluated in order to get a true appreciation of Muhammad and Islam. The Quran’s obscurities become clearer when we understand the Tradition. In our hadith section we include hadiths concerning Muhammad’s claim to be the Messenger of Allah; his alleged miracles and his assertion to be the Seal of the Prophets. Other hadiths can also be found here which concern such matters as Islam’s view of Jesus Christ; the alleged corruption of scripture and Islam’s understanding of sin and prayer.

Becoming familiar with the life of Muhammad

Who is this man whose name is linked with that of God in the pronouncement of the Muslim creed? Millions of the world’s population revere and honour him. Here we detail his early days as he grew up in the pagan background of Mecca; how he became an orphan and his alarming infancy and his consignment into the guardianship of Abu Talib who took him on his first mercantile trip into Syria. We then give other major influences on his life like his marriage to Khadijah; his additional polygamous marriages; his claims to divine revelation; his conflicts with the pagans and the Jews; his conquests and taking of Mecca and his sickness and death.

Becoming familiar with the Muslim world

The world’s Muslim population is expected to increase by about 35% in the next 20 years, rising from 1.6 billion in 2010 to 2.2 billion by 2030, according to population projections by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. They continue to state that “if current trends continue, 79 countries will have a million or more Muslim inhabitants in 2030, up from 72 countries today. A majority of the world’s Muslims (about 60%) will continue to live in the Asia-Pacific region, while about 20% will live in the Middle East and North Africa, as is the case today. But Pakistan is expected to surpass Indonesia as the country with the single largest Muslim population. The portion of the world’s Muslims living in sub-Saharan Africa is projected to rise; in 20 years, for example, more Muslims are likely to live in Nigeria than in Egypt. Muslims will remain relatively small minorities in Europe and the Americas, but they are expected to constitute a growing share of the total population in these regions.”

“About three-quarters of the world’s Muslims (74.1%) live in the 49 countries in which Muslims make up a majority of the population. More than a fifth of all Muslims (23.3%) live in non-Muslim-majority countries in the developing world. About 3% of the world’s Muslims live in more-developed regions, such as Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.” (Pew Research Center Publications)

Here is need of teaching like this, it is best comparative studies. As we are living among Muslims we need such types of studies, it is really fruitful for the Christian of Pakistan. My suggestion for you is to create your material in my language of Urdu and Punjabi also. It will bring lots of blessings of the Word of God for the Pakistani and Indian Urdu and Punjabi speaking people. For that purpose I as a translator will bring your material into Urdu languages and into Punjabi language as well.

  • Nahashon:

    I am Nahashon Mweberi an outreach pastor with ……….. Kenya, I am born again filled with God’s love , power and spirit to proclaim his word. Finding your site is an answered prayer to me because I have rarely heard people committed to reach the Muslims.Personally, I have been doing this for the last two years and have found Gods favor going before me. As I write to you now, I have more than twenty born again brothers whom I preached to and accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior. Though I have to travel a long way to reach them, I sometimes call them to my church for a week or two for further training. God bless you and thank you for the work you are doing. Pray for me too as i commit myself fully for this great call.

    • admin:

      Please read our articles about Muslim Evangelism and learn as much as you can about Islam but always ‘Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth’ (2 Timothy 2:15). If you have any particular questions please let me know.

  • WORD OF LIFE MINISTRY KENYA PO BOX 2629 MERU 60200-Kenya Email.wordoflifeministry@rocketmail.com http://www.wordkenya.org Ref.Appeal for Muslim evangelistic resources

    For the last 4 years now since 2008,Word Of Life Ministry is committed to reach out to the Muslim neighbors by sharing the gospel message through confidential correspondence courses and literature distribution. In all those years we have been relying on materials from our sister friends from Australia and Oldham UK.We have translated a number of the courses in Kiswahili and we now have a class of over 400 local correspondence students. We are also operating a Bible Training school in Kenya and wish to appeal for our Christian friends to come out and sponsor one or two of many interested locals who want to serve God among Muslim communities. We would also appreciate Bibles and other Christian libraries. We also need practical support such as clothing and shoes to support our dear friends whom we are reaching in arid and remote places of the country. Peter N Ibui

  • Riverofgrace:

    Dear Sir,

    Hi,it’s good to know your website. I had a quick look around and I think that You’ve done wonderful job for God’s kingdom. I’m really pleased to check every categories and will read more carefully as much as I can.

    Every Blessings


    Please note that the name of God is not Allah the god. God is Ilah, Ar-Rahman, the Beneficent, the Most Gracious To translate the name of Allah as God in English is completely wrong. God is always Ilah, Ar Rahman in Arabic, the Qur’an and Islamic law. The English translation of Allah is always ‘the god’. The Shahada, the pledge of faith for conversion to Islam:
    La ilaha ill-Allah, there is no god but Allah. The sentence comprises a denial and an affirmation. Negation: ‘La ilah’ negates all forms of god or God. Affirmation: ‘illAllah’ affirms that there is only Allah. In other words before you can say ‘I believe in Allah’ (illa Allah) you have to reject or disbelieve in any other god or God (La illaha). The reliable translator Pickthall says: ‘I use the word God only where the corresponding word Ilah is found in the Arabic.’ Mohammad M. Pickthall The Glorious Quran, pg. 1 Translator’s Note

  • Seeking for an approval to use some of your articles.

    Thank you

  • Asrael:

    I would like to point out, that while Islam is a neutral thing by itself, Allah has a plan that involves purging the inferior races (Arabs, blacks,… etc) and only using them as slaves, which however, shall outlive their usefullness.

    I would like to ask that this most holy aspect of racial Islamism shall be taken into consideration and spread.

  • Stacey Benoit:

    I don’t think Islam is a good religion … The Islamic Faith will not include even gay Muslims … Yet a person’s gender should never make them feel they don’t belong. Women and men can be stoned to death and that is violent and brutal and that is disgusting to make a person suffer before being killed by a mob with stones.
    I am a Christian … I am proud to be a Christian … Jesus saw a woman about to be stoned for adultery and he told the mob “let him who is without sin cast the first stone” and nobody threw a stone at the woman and yet Muslims can stone a woman to death for adultery and its disgusting that a person’s life can be ended by being stoned to death for just adultery and yet it’s Ok for Muslim men to have more than one wife as sleeping with a second wife when he has another is just as bad as a woman committing adultery.
    So why would anyone want to embrace the Muslim faith? If they are gay they are not accepted and gay Muslims have been hanged in Islamic countries and to end a person’s life because of gender is disgusting because that person does no wrong to anyone if they are gay or not.

    In Saudi Arabia a Muslim preacher tortured, raped and then murdered his 5 year old daughter … He was never punished and after a short time in prison he was given back his freedom on agreeing to pay compensation to the mother of the daughter he murdered … He had the right to rape and murder his own daughter … That is disgusting as that man is evil to do that to any child let alone his own daughter and then be allowed his freedom … Yet gay men are hanged and women are stoned for adultery and whipped too … But a preacher who did that to his daughter is given back his freedom. So these things are evidence that Islam is and never has been a religion of peace … The following link is about the Muslim preacher who tortured, raped and murdered his daughter and went unpunished for it … http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/saudi-preacher-who-raped-and-tortured-his-five-year-old-daughter-to-death-is-released-after-paying-8480440.html

  • Roger:

    Pastors, you’re all *********opportunists making a living like parasites. Praying on the weak of mind. Mohammad, a vile pedophilic sadistic coward. Read your Quran! Christ, a liar and egotistical trouble maker. Read you Bible. Moses, another liar and ego maniac. Read your Talmud. If you read this ancient horseshit, think about it, and still think it has anything to do with “God”, you all deserve to live with you stupidity and ignorance, and that fine, however, stop ****** and molesting the kids and women, you twisted scumbags. — Every so sincerely yours, Roger

    • admin:

      As far as Christ is concerned you obviously have not read the Gospels but are depending on hearsay. As far as those who molest kids and women are concerned they do so in flagrant contradiction of the teaching of scripture and your condemnation of them is in agreement with the very scriptures you condemn. As far as the Quran and the Talmud are concerned we leave the Muslims and Jews to answer your objections.

  • The One:

    If your 12th Imam Madhi ever does arise, mark my words “I WILL KILL IT”

    • admin:

      The correspondent is for some reason commenting about the Shiite Imami community who believed that the 11th Imam had in fact produced a son who had been hidden away from the Abbasid rulers. This 12th Imam is believed by the Twelver Shiites to have withdrawn from the unjust world of the time and went into hiding but unbeknown performed the Hajj and communicated with his followers through a select series of ambassadors. In 941 the last ambassador announced that the ‘hidden imam’ was withdrawing from the world altogether but would eventually return as the ‘awaited imam’ and the Mahdi. The correspondent expresses a strong animosity towards this belief. There will be only one will come again – the Lord Jesus Christ who was crucified, buried, raised from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day return – and this message should be proclaimed in love and compassion.

  • If a doctor practiced as the priests mullahs and rabis practiced all patients will die. If a flight engineer practiced like them the planes will not fly or just crash. I believe this you believe that. No proof needed. Just believe. Why not replace believe with make-believe. Biggest hypocrites are the religious, the make believers.

    • admin:

      Doctors and flight engineers have a code of practice they must adhere to Christians have a code of practice they adhere to; they call it the Bible. Should the Christian fail to live up to that code he may well deserve being called a hypocrite but those who live life according to these principles do not deserve this slur. The historical setting of the Christian ‘faith’ is beyond dispute, ‘saving faith’ confesses its truthfulness and rests in what Christ has accomplished.

  • yemmy:

    I really pity u and all your contorted views aimed @ getting converts by crook and means….Islam will rule the world….mind u,Muslims are guided by the Islamic injunction….. la ikra fi deen-meaning there is no compulsion in religion

    • admin:

      We are sorry that you believe we are using ‘contorted views aimed @ getting converts by crook and means’ we seek to exhort Muslims to consider the gospel in the same way as the Apostle Paul did “For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile” (2 Thessalonians 2:3). Its a pity that a good number of Islamic authorities believe the verse ‘there is no compulsion in religion’ has been abrogated in favour of the ‘verse of the sword’.

  • Amir:


    1. Quote from Qu’ran where it is written that Allah began the creation of mankind
    with Adam and Adam only.

    2. Quote from the Qu’ran where it is written that Allah created Adam without father
    and mother.

    3. Quote from the Qu’ran where it is written that Allah created Eve from a rib-bone
    of Adam.

    I know Arabic, so just quote Qu’ran chapter and verse. No English, no translation. No
    explanation. No Hadith. No Tafsir.

    Thank you.

    • admin:

      If you require only an Arabic Quranic response you will need to contact your Islamic scholars? If you want ‘no explanation’ this makes the task impossible? If you are suggesting the Quran has a problem with the person of Adam, we agree the Quran has a problem?. The Quran suggests that Adam was created in Paradise and dwelt there with his wife while the hadith adds she was created from her husband’s left rib (Al-‘Araf 7;9 fff). We would be interested to know who’s name you would insert into such verses as “He created you (all) from a single person: then created, of like nature, his mate” if that single person is not Adam?

      The Quran purports to be a confirmation of the previous scripture yet in its wide but brief distribution of the creation account fails to do it justice. As you suggest it leads to questions such as the ones you have posed. You will know that all sorts of difficulties arise if you only quote the Quran, for without the hadith and tafsir the ulema could not give their various pronouncements which have become part of Sunni theology and practice.

  • Amir:

    You can run but you can’t hide from God!!!

  • Hue Man:

    Everyone knows Muhammad just made it up so he could gain power. He was a well documented murderer and liar who ripped off folk, told tales and called it the Quran. He then went around and convinced the uneducated and poor that he spoke for God so he could use them as his own personal army to kill and steal land from “heretics” and ultimately further his ambition of ruling the world
