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)

    Islamic Materials Support.

    My Name is Brother Sogbesan Luqman and I am the chairman of the board of directors at Allstate Concepts. Allstate Concepts play an important role as the service provider in the locality. Our Organization is Jamhiyatu Nurul Akwaani. I serve as a representative of the Ifo, Ogun State community here at Jamhiyatu Nurul Akwaani, and I assist our resident Imam, Animashaun with community activities. Jamhiyatu Nurul Akwaani was established in 1985. It started with a small group of hardworking Muslim men and women, who held Friday prayers and Islamic Sunday school at one of the members homes. Eventually, they wearable to relocate and transfer their activities.

    Our Muslim community is currently facing Traditional and christian challenging, they are taking away all our widows, brothers, sisters and children to there religions because of lack support of Islamic materials and financial to complete/build our mosque in our community.We are giving our best efforts to make sure we end this, we still need help from individuals Muslim bothers and sisters, companies and foreign Islam aids. Your Help is very crucial to our longstanding efforts in solving the problem.

      Christians are not taking away widows, brothers or children from Islam because of financial areas but because the good news of the Gospel is so attractive to those in search of salvation and it has positive teaching about how to care for widows, orphans and the Christian community.

  • 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. Have you ever read Muhammad’s life? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCgj6p3JTLg plss watch this video to understand better

    They threw him rocks. As Muhammed was praying, they threw camels bowel on him; they (unbelievers) had left off trade with Muslims so that Muslims had no money and hungry. They put poison on his food and tried to kill him; they set up trap; they killed women and men; they killed his grandchilds.. etc . But HE NEVER GAVE UP . For what ? for money? for women? for reputation? What is really strange is that those who do not believe him but trust him . They called him EL EMİN ( confidential ) source( Sîretu İbn Hişam, 1/266; İbnu Seyyid’n-nas,Uyunu’l-eser, 1/132; İbn Kesir, es-Sîretu’n-Nebeviye, 1/474; Beyhakî, Delail’u’n-Nübüvve-şamile- 2/63; Taberî, 2/218-220)

      Seemed to have missed these comments. Here we have two opposite points of view. It shows that you need to study the source documents to argue effectively with Muslims. They will never accept any criticism of Muhammad from conjecture. Thankfully we have sufficient evidence in Muslim source documents which show he never surpassed the glory of Jesus Christ. Please read our detailed information concerning Muhammad under the heading ‘Muhammad’. The best thing of course is to read the Gospels and get a glimpse of who Jesus Christ is.

  • If we have a claim, we must prove that we can not get rid of it. The University of Birmingham in England has some parts that are thought to be the oldest Qur’an in the world. Carbon 14 dating methods show that the book is at least 1370 years old. The surveys show that the parchment has 95 percent probability that it stays between 568 and 645 years.When we compare it with today’s Qur’anic, we see that there is no difference.

    • admin:

      Here is another comment that has arrived at our site some time ago so a reply is in order.
      We think you are getting carried away a little here. What you fail to say is that the Birmingham University manuscript is a four page manuscript made of parchment, written in ink, containing only parts of Surahs 18,19 and 20. The radiocarbon dating of the parchment, on which the text is written suggests that the parchment has a date range of between 568-645 with 95.4% probability. The manuscript shows that rather than there being no difference there is in fact difference amounting to 4.6% just in this part of the Quran. If the whole Quran is measured by this light the differences throughout the whole Quran are considerable. There was a time when Muslims used to assert that Christians only have fragments in their ancient manuscripts but now you seem to want to highlight a procedure that Muslims have for long-periods of time decried. Amazing.

      When we compare it with today’s Qur’anic, we see that there is no difference.

  • Brotheus:

    Hello to everyone. First of all, it’s a great thing to research religions and I’m investigating to. Islam has made more sense to me than yours. Because most of the things you write are answered by Islam. I wanted to answer comments one by one, but I could not find how to make it. If you’re really sincere and want to find out the truth, we can talk. There are answers to what you wrote as I said, please send me a message.:)))

    Here is my gmail

    • admin:

      It’s great that you are inquiring into the merits of Islam and the Christian faith. It sounds as though you have a number of stumbling blocks that prevent you from seeing the truth of Christianity. If you could write your comments on the appropriate section of our web-site meessage4muslims.org it would be great, then others could read your views and perhaps make their own comments. We look forward to hearing from you again. ——- Admin message4muslims. I have sent you a private e-mail as requested.

    Koran is a falsified document by Roman Emperor Constantine.

    • admin:

      While we agree that the Quran is not the ‘Word of God’ we think that your assessment of it being falsified by Constantine is very far fetched, and you produce no evidence to substantiate your claim.

    • admin:

      Sorry, but we seem to have missed your comments sent in June. If you are still interested it would be nice to hear from you again. The Quran is certainly the work of a false prophet but you are on very thin ice if you want to blame Constantine for falsification. If you think you can substantiate your claim then it would be good to hear from you also if you have any other comment please just write.

  • Cris Morgado:

    Ultimately my understanding is that Allah is perceived as one of the unique names of God for Muslims.

    Ultimately God, as it is often written by several religions, are but names to point to the ultimate truth: infinite intelligence that created all and is all.

    The more words one uses to describe God the more confusion ensues. For example, God does not have gender as God is all.

    Best to connect with ones’ pure heart, of good deeds of action where the ultimate result is one of communion with the divine.

    • admin:

      Names in the Bible are not a mere label but refer to characteristics of the real personality to whom they belong. The name Moses for example means drawn out of the water. While the basic and general names of El, Elyon and Elohim are used God reveals himself to his covenant people in more personalised terms focussing on participles of El or Jehovah. We agree that you are correct in identyfying that the names point to ultimate truth but would suggest they are not a impersonal but on the contrary they are intensely personal, given in order to meet the needs of his people. For example Jehovah yir’eh means “the Lord provides” – while in its original setting (Genesis 22:8,14) God provided a substute ram for Isaac the Lord’s people are conscious of how the Lord provides for their many personal needs. The name Jesus of course is a transliteration of the Hebrew ‘Joshua’ meaning ‘Jehovah is salavtion’.
      Christans believe that sin has separated them from fellowship with God and one’s heart is not pure but exceptionally deceitful. When sin is dealt with, through the redemption obtained through Jesus Christ, communion with the divine can commence and a life given to righteousness and good works can begin.

  • Crystal Williams:

    When ever someone cries out to Allah, how come he does not do anything. Its only Jesus who is the healer the one who answers. Why is Allah deaf, why did Jesus come to rescue a terrorist Muslim? Leave all the books aside Muhammed has done nothing but create trouble. Examine the life of Jesus and Mohammed and then see who is the liar, don’t have to be a scholar to view this. An apple tree bears apples, by their fruits you will know them. Jesus says do not kill love your enemies and pray for them / Mohammed says kill them for Allah. Seems like Allah is a wimp, do you really know who is Allah? Its Satan.

  • Why Muslim people wanna that i become in muslim religon I was born in this religion (Hindu)and I will die in in this religon plz keep this in your mind.

    • admin:

      The important thing about any religion is that it should lead you to a true understanding of who God is; how you can have a relationship with this God and how you can please Him in your life. Of course there are many other factors, but may I ask you to consider the Christian faith of which Jesus Christ is the corner stone:” Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:12-14)

  • jazbar49:

    “soften metal with his bare hands”??? Well, yes, Muhammad also has you believing that a dog and some humans spent 309 years sleeping in a cave (Quran 18:25), that a hoopoe bird returning from a spy mission had a conversation with Solomon (Quran 27:22-24), that a talking ant knew Solomon’s name (Quran 27;18) and that some humans got turned into apes and pigs.(Quran 5:60).
    Now if your own mother told you that she received a message from the god of the universe that 6 kangaroos spent 258 years sleeping on a hill would you believe her? No, you would use your brain. But you choose to believe all the stupid nonsense Muhammad tells you to believe. Why?
    Islam oppresses women and lies to non-Muslims. Murders Shia and Sunni and innocents abroad. A religion, as all religions, grows upon strife, murder and infanticide. Get SCIENCE and GET REAL.

    • admin:

      You illustrate above why progressive Muslims are trying to re-interpret the Quran and ahadith. There is a real battle going on within Islam attempting to change what cannot be changed.
      Of course we would disagree with you that New Testament faith creates strife, murder and infanticide but perhaps this will be the target of your next assault. We wait to see. Compliments.

  • Nyam Cy:

    I need help to tell a friend more about Jesus. we often have a good debate.

    • admin:

      So many Christians these days do not have non-Christian friends so this is a lovely opportunity to remain a true friend but also share the gospel with him with your words and actions as appropriate. Discussion is very important and you may need to do some research to counter your friend’s objections. If we can help in this area please drop us another line.

  • 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.

  • 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’.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

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

    Thank you


    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

    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

    I am Pastor Iqbal from Pakistan, this site gives very good knowlege for Indian and Pakistani people.

  • 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.

  • I am Sarah from Pakistan. I have studied your web site, and I found it the most wonderful site to get right to the True Word of God. 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.

    In Him,
