As-salamu `alaykum, Is there any real explanation about why we don’t all live under one religion, or why didn’t Allah give the same religion to all people in the world and make them all his sincere servants. Allah knows what will happen to each person, He knows a person when He is going to do something bad, why does Allah let him do it? Allah knows the faith of each person, why doesn’t he make the faith of each person to be the correct faith? Last question is that does Allah control our faith or He just knows about our faith? If He does control our faith why does He make the faith of some people end in a bad way? Thank you so much for your time.

  1. Why do you think the article by Rick Mathes entitled: “Allah or Jesus?” is being circulated so widely among ordinary Americans through e-mail? Why do you think the author chose the title “Allah or Jesus?” 2. Is it true that an “infidel” is a non-believer (like me)? If so, is it true that the Qur’an actually instructs Muslims to kill non-believers to guarantee them a place in heaven? If so, what are the exact words (or as near as they can be in translation)? 3. What is jihad? Is this a real on-going endless call for the murder of “non-believers” (a bit like Bush’s War on Terror), or is it a metaphor describing the need to fight for what you believe in and share your faith with the doubters? Explain. Here is “Allah or Jesus?” By Rick Mathes:Last month I attended my annual training session that is required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths who explained their belief systems. I was particularly interested in what the Islamic imam had to say. The imam gave a great presentation about the basics of Islam complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn I directed my question to the imam and asked: “Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad (holy war) against the non-believers of the world. And, that by killing a infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven. If that is the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?” There was no disagreement with my statements and without hesitation he replied: “Non-believers!” I responded: “So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can go to heaven. Is that correct?” The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He sheepishly replied: “Yes.” I then stated: “Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Pat Robertson or Dr. Stanley ordering Protestants to do the same in order to go to heaven!” The imam was speechless. I continued: “I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me. Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah who tells you to kill me in order to go to heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and wants you to be with me?” You could have heard a pin drop as the imam hung his head in shame. Chuck Colson once told me something that has sustained me these 20 years of prison ministry. He said to me: “Rick, remember that the truth will prevail.” And it will!

The Qur’an is promised to be held pure and constant. Could I ask you then, please, how it could be interpreted to justify suicide bombings and “holy war”? Doesn’t this conflict with the Qur’anic teachings? Thank you for your time and comments.

Salaam, Having visited many Islamic sites on the internet and having read a transliteration of the Qur’an, I find it hard to reconcile some of the extreme views. Given on a few of these sites with the compassion and love for humanity that is there for all to see in the Qur’an, it seems that some small minority are interpreting what is written to suit there own aims and ambitions. How in your view can these claims be countered by the silent majority.
