Bible tells us there's only ONE God and HIS name is JESUS & there's only ONE way

to be saved - ACTS
2:38 - repentance, baptism in JESUS name, receiving the HOLY GHOST - that's what's needed. JESUS is
very specific on what we must do to be saved. JESUS' salvation is for whosoever will - but it is our choice.
Then the muslims must know that if the bible predate qoran and jesus is mentioned in the quran then
his words are true as in Acts 2;3. And Gods word cannot be changed, how then mohammed claimed he
received message from God contrally to what Jesus said in Acts 2;3 and many other verses in the bible.
Questions to Ask a Muslim
The allah of muslims hate christians & jews. In sura 9 state; may allah curse be upon the jews &
christians. If those were words received from allah by mohammed, Christians should not use the
muslim allah to refer to the God they worship
1. The Qur'an says Allah cannot have a son without a consort,
yet claims Mary had a son
without a consort.
Is this not limiting Allah's omnipotence,
and why is Mary capable
of doing something Allah cannot?
2. Is Allah the god of the Old Testament?
3. 1 of Allah's 99 names translates as the Deceiver.
Why would you believe in any such
4. Why does almost every description of Allah also equal non-existence? (i.e. incorporeal,
immaterial, ineffable, unfathomable, incomprehensible, etc.)
5. If no one has seen Allah,
its sex cannot be determined. Why do you still address it

as a male?
6. Why would Allah have to bribe his followers
by promising them loot?
[edit] Apostasy
1. Would you trust a political party which does not allow ex-members to speak out? If not,
why would you trust Islam, and why should anyone convert to a religion which kills

apostates and does not
allow criticism?
2. Why do so many people still leave Islam
even though they
receive death threats for doing so?
3. Why is there "no compulsion" in religion when the punishment for apostasy, both
"normal" apostasy and "treason",
is death?
[edit] Arabic
1. Classic Arabic is missing vowels and dots. If the Qur'an is the "words of God" only in its
original language, why did Allah not reveal it in a language that was fully developed?
2. There are only 150 million native Arabic speakers in the world today.
Why did Allah
not reveal the Qur'an in a language more widely spoken on earth such as Mandarin

(800 million), Spanish
(358 million), English
(350 million), Hindi
(200 million)
or Russian
(160 million)?
3. If you cannot criticize Islam unless you know Classical Arabic (because your
understanding of what Islam is may be erroneous), doesn't that mean the vast majority of
Muslims follow and/or propagate a religion they do not understand?
4. Why is Arabic only difficult to understand or translate when a non-Muslim criticizes the
Qur'an? And why do Muslims claim critics mis-translate words when it is often their own
scholars and their most authoritative Arabic to English dictionaries
that confirm
5. There are many Arabic dialects such as Egyptian, Gulf, Eastern Arabic, Maghrebi and
dozens of others.
Which one did Allah want us to use to interpret the Qur'an?
[edit] Body
1. Muslims believe that our body parts will testify our sins in the hereafter.
Is that true
for donated body parts as well?
2. If circumcision is a command from Allah, shouldn't it be mentioned in the Qur'an? And
why did Allah not create us circumcised if he wants us that way?
3. Why does Allah hate tattoos,
and why has he forbidden
4. Why does Allah curse people
for plucking their eyebrows?
[edit] Children
1. Muslims always attack the Christian concept of Original sin and the Hindu/Buddhist
concept of Karma. So how do you explain innocent children being born with Aids or
being born deformed? Is it "Allah's will" to make innocent children suffer? Does he think
its funny to create Hermaphrodites and Schizophrenics?
2. Why does Islam ban adoption?
What's so evil about it?
3. Little children may believe in Cinderella talking to birds and mice and stuff. What makes
you smarter than a child if you believe that Suleiman, as the Qur'an says,
was talking
to ants?
4. Why do you say there's no compulsion in religion even though the hadith says
should hit kids who don't pray?
[edit] Pedophilia
1. Why do some of you claim sex is only allowed with girls who have had their first
menses, when the Qur'an allows sex with pre-pubescent
2. Lina Medina (born September 27, 1933, in Ticrapo, Peru), had her menarche at age 8
So is it okay to have sex with an 8 month old baby?
3. Is sex between a 53 year old man and a 9 year old girl, immoral or moral?
[edit] Conflict/Terrorism
1. Modern Muslims have religious conflicts with: Hindus in Kashmir; Christians in Nigeria,
Egypt, and Bosnia; atheists in Chechnya; Baha'is in Iran; Animists in Darfur; Buddhists
in Thailand; each other in Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen; Jews in Israel; Why is
Islam involved in more sectarian and religious conflicts than any other religion today? In
fact, why is Islam the only religion in conflict with every single one of today's major
world religions?
2. To this day there is sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shi'ites in Lebanon, Iraq,
Yemen and Pakistan. Did Allah plan this?
3. Why are Muslims often concerned about Palestinian Muslims but not about Iraqis,
Yemenis, Sudanese and Pakistanis who get butchered by fellow Muslims?
4. l-uds

Jerusalem) is not once mentioned directly in the Qur'an.

So why make
such scriptural contentions?
5. Why do Muslims build, or attempt to build, mega mosques in controversial places such as
the London Olympic site,
the New York ground zero,
and outside the Vatican?
6. Why do Muslims so often
go on a violent rampage after Friday prayers?
[edit] Creation
1. Why do some Muslims ridicule the Old Testament rendition of Eve's creation, when the
also tells us that she was made from Adam, and Sahih hadith
tell us it
was specifically from Adam's rib?
2. Isn't making all women menstruate, suffer pregnancy and become stupid as a punishment
for Eve's transgressions in the garden
(a view which is confirmed by the Qur'an and
sahih hadith)
a little sexist? What about Adam? He ate the fruit too.
[edit] Drinks
1. The Qur'an refers to alcohol as an "abomination" and "Satan's handwork",
so why does
the Qur'an also praise
alcohol and emphasize the point
that it is something found in
2. When used in moderation, there are numerous benefits in the consumption of
Rather than giving us an outright ban,

shouldn't Allah have only prohibited its abuse?
3. The Qur'an encourages people to drink milk
and tells us it is something being served in
the Muslim Paradise,
but if you claim the potential health risk of alcohol was enough
to cause its prohibition, why not also ban the drinking of milk which is potentially more
harmful due to most of the world's population, past
and present,
not being
biologically designed to digest milk?
4. If life is a test, isn't banning alcohol in Muslim countries the same as interfering in Allah's
5. Why is alcohol based mouthwash forbidden? Can people absorb enough alcohol through
the skin to get drunk?
6. Muhammad claimed Zamzam (Islamic holy water) is miraculous and it could heal any
So why does it contain arsenic levels three times the legal limit, high levels of
nitrate, and other potentially harmful bacteria?
Does Allah want to poison his
[edit] Flat Earth
1. The Qur'an says the Earth is like a rug.
No one has ever seen a spherical rug.
Why did Allah not use the word "Kurah" (Arabic for spherical) before the word "Earth"
like all Arabic texts do today?
2. Why is it that every year Muslims on opposite sides of Earth can't agree when Ramadan
starts? Did Allah use outdated astronomical calculations because he thought the Earth
was flat?
3. The earth is not flat, so why do Muslims pray to the East (or West) when the shortest
distance to Mecca is through the Earth (if you want to go through the earth) or through
the poles (if you want to travel along the surface)?
4. A Muslim must pray facing Mecca, and to pray with their back to Mecca would be
sacrilegious. From a flat-earth viewpoint, this makes sense. But the earth is spherical, so
if you pray facing Mecca, you also have your back to Mecca at the same time (and vice-
versa). How do you explain this?
5. The closer we get to the North and South poles,
the longer our days or nights become.
They can eventually extend for up to several months each, making the fourth Pillar of
Islam impossible to practice without starving yourself to death. Was Allah unaware of the
poles and Eskimos?
[edit] Hell
1. Is it fair that (according to multiple sahih hadith) on the Day of Resurrection Allah will
spare you from hell-fire by allowing you to throw Jews and Christians into hell

2. Every non-Muslim who died before Islam was "revealed during their time-period/region"
is in Hell (this includes Muhammad's parents).
Why were they never given a
3. After death, non-Muslims will be tortured by a bald snake.
Is it the same snake from
the Egyptian myths (Apep)?
[edit] Ka'aba
1. The Ka'aba was destroyed at least twice after Muhammad's death.
Why didn't Allah
send birds to protect the Ka'aba then?
2. The Black Stone in the Ka'aba has been struck and smashed by a stone fired from a
it has been smeared with excrement,
stolen and ransomed by the
and smashed into several fragments.
Why did Allah not protect this
important 'holy' stone from desecration and damage?
3. Why do Muslims follow the pre-Islamic pagan practice of circling the Ka'aba (Tawaf)?
4. Do you think it's strange that Judaism and Christianity (the religions of those who are
considered People of the Book) do not practice ritual circumambulation (e.g. circling the
Ka'aba) to please God, but pre-Islamic Arab Paganism and Hinduism and Buddhism
religions older than Islam and accused by Islam of paganism) do practice ritual
5. Why do you have to circumambulate the Ka'aba seven times?
Why not just once? Why
not eight or six times? And why only in a counter-clockwise
6. Whenever royalty or important persons come to the Ka'aba, security give them a special
place for prayer in the hateem. Why is there such inequality at the Ka'aba?
7. There are hundreds of cleaners at the Ka'aba who regularly clean away pigeon droppings.
If the Masjid al-Haram is truly holy, why does Allah allow birds to defile it?
[edit] Marriage
1. Why are men permitted to have four wives
but women are only allowed one husband?
2. Why is having four wives permitted but having five wives is forbidden?
3. Why do many Muslim women disagree with their husband getting a second wife even
though Allah has allowed up to four wives?
4. Why does Allah allow
and even encourage (through Muhammad's example)

marriage between cousins? Does he not know it causes genetic disorders
5. Do you think its right that a man can divorce for any reason by pronounces "talaq" three
but a woman has to plead her case before a judge?
[edit] Adultery
1. Fifty percent of men worldwide have had extra-marital sex. So, in theory, do half the men
on earth deserve to be stoned or lashed?
2. Does Allah really want the children of adulterers to grow up without their parents
because they need to be executed?
3. Does Allah really think public whipping is the most enlightened way to deal with those
who have sex before marriage?
4. Instead of the outdated and unreliable method of four witnesses to adultery, why not just
use DNA samples which non-Muslims invented?
[edit] Messengers
[edit] Prophet Muhammad
1. How do you know that the angel Muhammad was talking to was from Allah and was not
Satan himself?
2. Michael H. Hart, the Jewish American author of "The 100: A Ranking of the Most
Influential Persons in History", claims the 2 reasons he decided Muhammad deserved the
number 1 spot was because of his success as a warlord,
and because he himself wrote
the Qur'an and made-up all of Islam's theology and laws.
Do you agree with these
claims? If not, do you still feel proud of his placing?
3. Do you think its okay that Muhammad beheaded a whole tribe banu qurayza)
as if
they were all guilty? Is it morally acceptable that even kids with traces of pubic
were killed?
4. Why do some of you condemn an ordinary person for engaging in pedophilia, but when
your prophet does it,
you make up excuses and even defend his actions?
5. Why does Muhammad's ascension story sound so strikingly similar to Jesus' ascension?
Could it have been a copy-cat story?
6. Why is the Qur'an full of verses that say "Muhammad is not crazy"?
Why did
so many people accuse Muhammad of being crazy?
7. Since many of Muhammad's own family members did not believe him,
why should
8. How do you know whether or not Muhammad suffered from schizophrenia, narcissism,
or Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder?
9. If Muhammad was illiterate, why does Sahih Hadith such as Bukhari say he used to write

10. The most authentic hadith collections, like Sahih Bukhari,
Sahih Muslim,

and Abu Dawud
confirm that Muhammad fornicated with a 9 year old. So does
So why do some Muslims ignore or deny this?
11. In Islam, Muhammad is given the honor of being the uswa hasana. He is viewed as "the
perfect model of conduct for all Muslims," and Allah asserts his morality as being
So what crime exactly has Osama bin Laden committed which
Muhammad did not?
12. Unlike Muhammad,
Osama bin Laden is not a known pedophile. Doesn't this mean
that the world's most notorious terrorist is in fact a more moral man than the founder of
[edit] Jesus Christ
1. The Qur'an claims the New Testament is a book given to Jesus.
However, in reality, it
consists of books by Jesus' followers. Why make such an obvious error?
2. When Allah fooled the Jews (and eventually the Christians) into thinking Jesus was
crucified on the cross,
was he being a Deceiver?
3. Why did Allah wait 600 years to tell the Christians and Jews that Jesus did not really die
on the cross?
4. Instead of simply saying 'Jesus didn't get resurrected', why did Allah not prove Jesus was
not resurrected to avoid more than two billion mislead Christians?
5. According to Muslims, Jesus never said he was the son of God. So why is "son of Mary"
explicitly added whenever anyone addresses him?
Are they telling
Jesus something he doesn't already know?
[edit] Natural Disasters
1. Why does Allah mostly target Muslim majority countries
in major earthquakes? If
this is a test of faith, doesn't the indiscriminate killing of innocent women and children
make him unworthy of worship?
2. While non-Muslims provide most of the aid after a natural disaster, Allah does nothing.
Does he abandon his people on purpose and wish to humiliate them?
3. Why doesn't Allah prevent Mosques from being desecrated during earthquakes in Muslim
4. Allah tells you not to take non-Muslims as friends and protectors.
So why do
Muslims accept aid from non-Muslims?
5. Kashmir is divided between India, Pakistan, and China. Why did Allah destroy the
Pakistan-controlled part of Kashmir
rather than the Hindu and Buddhist majority
regions in the 2005 earthquake?
[edit] Prophecy
1. Why do you deny the prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmed, Bah'u'llh, and Rashad
2. Islam makes many prophecies about the end of times, but why are none of the modern
technologies prophecized?
3. How much of a god is Allah if he sent 128,000 failed prophets before sending us
Muhammad with a final message?
4. People such as Nostradamus,
Isaac Newton,
and Einstein
had many prophecies
so were they divinely inspired too?
[edit] Rules & Rituals
1. Why can't you simply say in your head "thanks Allah" instead of praying to Allah with
gestures that don't make any sense?
2. Why would Allah care about which foot
we enter the toilet with, and why does he
care about which shoe we put on first?
3. Why does Allah care whether you use even or odd numbers of toilet paper or
in the loo?
4. Why would an omnipotent deity care which hand
you use to eat?
5. Why does Allah care whether or not you sleep on your stomach?
6. Why does Allah want you to trim your mustache and grow your beard?
Why is he
preoccupied with such trivial things?
7. Why in Islam is it forbidden to touch a dog but not a rat, when rats are much more dirty?
8. Why does Allah recommend you to dye your hair?
Why on earth would an
omnipotent deity care what color your hair is?
9. Why does Allah forbid silk for men?
Why does he care what clothing material you
have on?
10. Why does Allah care what type of clothes (i.e. the ihram) you wear when going on Hajj?
[edit] Science
1. If there truly is science in the Qur'an, why didn't Maurice Bucaille
convert to Islam?
2. Other religions claim to have scientific miracles too, so wouldn't this mean that the
Islamic argument is void?
3. Why do alleged claims of compatibility between the Qur'an and science only come after
the scientific discovery is made?
4. If Muslims trust Muhammad, why not use his recommended medicines (mentioned in
numerous sahih hadith) such as camel urine
rather than western products?
5. Muhammad said if you eat seven dates every morning, no poison can harm you.

Does that include protection against arsenic, cyanide, ricin, and sarin?
6. If the Qur'an and Hadith are full of science (as Muslims claim) why did the owners of
these scriptures not invent computers, TVs, spaceships, helicopters, ipods, satellites, birth
control pills, vaccination for smallpox, telephones, radios, light bulbs, microchips, CDs,
playstations, refrigerators, microwaves, stainless steel, plastic, x-rays, polio-vaccine, anti-
biotics, heart-transplants, DNA studies etc?
7. Most claims of scientific achievements made by followers of Islam during the so-called
"Golden Age" (for example; all 20 inventions mentioned by Paul Vallely) have been
either refuted or shown to have been greatly exaggerated. How do you feel about that?
8. Why doesn't Allah find a way to refute human evolution?
9. Muhammad said that black cumin cures all diseases except death.
Can it cure
AIDS, Polio, Diabetes and Bird Flu among many others?
[edit] Scriptures
[edit] Bible
1. Why do you claim the Bible is corrupt but at the same time proclaim Muhammad is
mentioned in the Bible?
2. If you believe only parts of the Bible have been corrupted, how do you differentiate
between the good and the bad? Don't you think arbitrarily choosing whatever verses suit
your argument is intellectually dishonest?
3. The Qur'an never says the physical scriptures of the previous revelations were corrupted,
only their interpretations. So why does the Qur'an contradicts the message of the Bible?
4. Early Islamic scholars such as Ibn al-Layth, Ibn Rabban, Ibn Qutayba, Al-Ya'qubi, Al-
Tabari, Al-Baqillani, Al-Mas'udi, and Al-Bukhari
confirm that the Taurat and Injil
were not physically corrupted. So why is belief to the contrary so prevalent among
todays Muslims?
5. Why did Allah not (as most Muslims claim) protect Christianity or Judaism from
"corruption"? If he couldn't get it right the first two times, why is Islam any different?
6. If the Taurat and Injil were "perfect" and agreed with todays ur'an but are now
corrupted, then why did Allah declare "today I have perfected your religion"?
the previous revelations sent on other days not perfect?
7. If you believe previous scriptures were corrupted because Allah was "testing" humans or
he expected humans to look after their scriptures, doesn't that negate his omnipotence?
[edit] Quran
1. Why does Allah prefer sending scriptures to desert regions of the world?
2. Why does the Qur'an only speak about religions which were prevalent in Arabia at the
time of its revelation? Why are there no Dharmic or Taoic religions mentioned?
3. ccording to many Muslims, literary excellence of the uran) proves divine
inspiration, so was Shakespeare or Virgil divinely inspired too?
4. Why does the Qur'an discuss extinct religions such as Sabians,
while ignoring major
religions such as Hinduism?
5. Caliph Uthman had all different copies of the Qur'an destroyed,
so how do you know
that his version is the correct one?
6. Muslims claim no-one can produce a single chapter like the Qur'an, but is there anything
extraordinary, for example, about chapter 108
and its three short ayahs?
7. Muslims do not know what the Qur'an verse "Alif Lam Mim" means. So what was the
point of putting it in the Qur'an?
8. The earliest found Qur'an did not have diacritical marks,
so how can you say the
Qur'an is uncorrupted?
9. Is it possible to open a random page in the Qur'an and not find a verse of violence in
10. If Allah knows everything, why did he make the Qur'an so ambiguous? Did he want
Muslims to spend their spare time trying to figure out its meanings?
11. Why does the ur'an repeat the same things over and over and over? Wouldnt the space
have been better filled by covering fundamental Muslim beliefs such as the Five Pillars or
circumcision, neither of which are mentioned in the uran?
12. The Qur'an
claims Satan misleads Muslims - so how can we trust Islamic scholars, or
indeed any Muslim?
13. The Qur'an says faces will turn black if the person is a sinner, and the face will turn white
if the person is not.
In the light of this, what will happen to black people?
14. Islamic sources,
including Sahih Hadith,
confirm that Muhammad and the
early Muslims were fooled by Satan who produced a counterfeit Qur'anic verse that was
indistinguishable from the real thing (i.e. the "Satanic Verses" incident). Taking verse
with its "Surah like it" challenge into consideration, isn't the Qur'an discredited
by its own criteria?
[edit] Sex
1. A Muslim male is allowed to have sex with up to four wives,
his concubines, his
and with POW.
How do you feel about your religion permitting men to
practice pre-marital sex, adultery, rape, and polygamy? Do you think any of this is
2. Does Allah really want homosexuals to be put to death
for expressing what
they feel, often against what they wish they felt?
3. Muslim men are allowed to practice al-'Azl (withdrawing the penis before ejaculation
during sexual intercourse) with female slaves and POW.
What about doing this
with male slaves?
[edit] Shariah
1. If people truly have free will why does the Islamic Shari'ah prevent people from
executing it?
2. Why is listening to music under most circumstances forbidden in Islam?
why can Muslims not agree on its permissibility? Isn't Islam supposed to be clear?
3. People date in order to find out the character of a possible spouse. So why does Allah
forbid dating?
4. Why has Allah forbidden taking pictures,
and why do so many Muslims ignore
this command?
5. Why is talking to the non-mahram opposite gender forbidden according to Islam?
6. Why according to Islam should dogs
(especially black ones)
be killed?
7. Why did Allah forbid the playing of chess
and masturbation? Aren't these things
8. Why does Allah want Muslims (if not the entire world) to follow 7
century Shari'ah
[edit] Women
1. If nikah (Islamic "marriage") literally means "sexual
and the mahr is payment for
nikah, what does that make all Muslim women?
2. Women are not permitted to practice polygamy, men are.
Women are not permitted to
have have pre-marital/extra-marital sex with slaves and POW,
men are. Women are
not permitted to beat their marital partners, men are.
A male inherits twice that of a
And the testimony of a women in court is worth half that of a man's
Considering these rules set out by the Qur'an, how can you possibly claim
Islam stands for equality between the sexes?
3. Why can a woman on her period
not touch the Qur'an?
4. A woman cannot pray to her creator for a quarter of the time because she is "dirty".

How do you feel about that?
5. It has been recorded in several sahih hadith that Muhammad said women should suckle
grown men in order to stay in the same house alone with them.
Is that good
[edit] Hijab
1. If Hijab and niqab is (Islamically) good for society, why are there so many homosexuals
in the Arabian peninsula?
2. Why do Muslim apologists claim the hijab is only cultural when critics point out that it is
oppressive to women, but then claim it is a religious obligation when governments
attempt to ban it?
3. If women observing hijab is deemed by Islamic logic necessary to prevent a woman
arousing lust in a man, why are men also not enjoined to wear a burqa to prevent women
and homosexuals from lusting after them?
4. In some tropical countries, the weather is hot and humid, Muslim women who wearing a
hijab may feel uncomfortable, especially when doing physical exercises, did Allah know
[edit] Miscellaneous
1. Would you accept your husband's right hand possessions (sex slaves) in your home?
2. Why doesn't the Qur'an actually say there are 5 declarations of faith? Did Muslims make
these things up?
3. In the 7
century some Arab guy flew on a winged horse to Heaven and was told by God
everyone needed to bow towards a cubical in the Saudi desert 5 times. Why should we
believe this?
4. Why does Allah love sneezing but hate yawning?
Didn't he know germs are spread
via sneezing, while the body gets more oxygen when it yawns?
5. Why did Allah turn Sabbath breakers
into monkeys and pigs?
6. Muhammad said that anyone who knows the 99 names of Allah will go to Heaven
Does this apply to non-Muslims who believe Muhammad was a warmongering fraud and
a pedophile?
7. Why did Muhammad
change Qiblah?
8. Why does Allah not accept
the prayer of someone who farts?
9. Muslims have to look down when they pray, because looking up towards "Heaven"
during prayer will make them go blind.
Have you or anyone ever witnessed this
10. How come all the Islamic messengers of the Qur'an come from the Middle East? There
are still unreached Indigenous people today in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Oceania -
is it fair Allah ignores them?
11. Before reading and writing were invented (5000BC), what basis did Allah use to judge
the people who died?
12. Fatimah was born 5 years after First Revelation according to Shia sources. Muhammad
married Khadijah when he was 25 and she was 40. Muhammad claimed prophet hood
when he was 40, therefore Khadijah would have been 60 when she gave birth to Fatimah.
Isn't this a miracle?
13. Do you think it's appropriate that slave murderers are custodians of the two holy

14. Why did Allah make the Islamic holy day Friday, the Jewish holy day Saturday, and the
Christian holy day Sunday?
15. There are many monotheistic religions before Islam (such as Judaism, Christianity and
Zoroastrianism), and after Islam (such as Yazdnism and Sikhism), so what is wrong
with them specifically?
16. Muhammad's father was named Abdallah (meaning Allah's slave). Since Muhammad's
father was a pagan, aren't you simply following a modified pagan religion?
17. Pigs, which are in the family Suidae are haaram. Does this prohibition also include the
unrelated New World animals such as the Javelina, in the family Peccary? Does this also
include related animals such as the Hippos which are in neither family?
[edit] Questions for Islamic Sects
Large mainstream sects that are partially accepted by one another.
[edit] Sunnis
1. Why didn't Muhammad appoint a leader before his death to avoid Shi'ites and other sects
splitting up from Sunnis?
2. Why do some of you try to distance yourself from Salafis (or "Wahhabis") in front of
non-Muslims, when they are the most pious Sunni Muslims? Are you ashamed of the
Salaf (first 3 generations of Muslims)?
3. Why do you criticize Shi'ites for Mut'ah when Sunnis practice Misyar which is essentially
the same thing?
4. If Shi'ites are wrong, why did Allah allow Ali and his Shi'ite army to defeat the Sunnis at
three separate battles of Bassorah, Siffin and Nahrawan?
[edit] Shi'ites
1. If Allah wanted Ali to be the substitute after Muhammad, why did he fail in his plan?
2. Why do some of you slice children's foreheads with a blade on Ashura? Isn't this child
[edit] Questions for Non-Islamic Sects
Sects/cults that call themselves "Muslim" but are considered "outside the fold of Islam" due to
being as different to Islam as Christianity or Judaism.
[edit] Ahmadis
1. Which death is more humiliating for a prophet of Islam; being crucified or dying of
diarrhea in a public toilet?
2. Why do you claim there are 200 million of you when in reality there are only 10 million
Ahmadis worldwide?
3. Considering Ahmadis believe only they are true Muslims, does it surprise you that you've
been declared non-Muslims by Muslims the world-over?
[edit] Baha'is
1. Two alternative Baha'i organizations have been sued by the Baha'i Faith organization for
using the word "Baha'i" to describe their beliefs. That's like the Catholic Church suing
Protestants for calling themselves "Christians". Do you agree that this makes your faith
look ridiculous and petty?
2. You believe that eventually all people and nations should come under the theocratic rule
of the infallibly inspired Baha'i Universal House of Justice. How is this any different than
the Caliphate and Shari'ah?
3. In the Kitb-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) Baha'u'llah limits the number of wives to 2, but
he had 3 wives. Why believe in such a hypocrite?
4. Bah'u'llh was a polygamist who allowed men to have up to 2 wives, so why is
polygamy forbidden by Baha'i law?
5. In the Kitb-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) Baha'u'llah commands that a thief should have a
visible mark put on his forehead after the third offense. Why do you consider this man to
be the greatest Manifestation of God?
6. In the Kitb-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) sodomy is forbidden. Why is this?
7. Being such a new faith, you'd expect it to incorporate many liberal ideals. So why are
homosexual relationships forbidden and homosexuality seen as a handicap that should be
treated? Was Baha'u'llah a homophobe?
8. Abdu'l Baha and Shoghi Effendi are both infallible, so why can't they decide if Confucius
was or was not a Manifestation?
9. You believe all the greatest faiths founded by Manifestations differ only in non-essential
aspects of their doctrines. Even a cursory glance at the doctrines of the major world
religions will tell you this is false. So why do you believe this?
10. If Baha'u'llah is the apex of all previous Manifestations, why can't he walk on water or
split the moon?
11. According to your faith, each Manifestation is more perfect than the previous one, but do
you honestly believe Muhammad's teachings are superior to Christ's or Buddha's?
12. Why do you think Muhammad was so great, when his followers are killing you? Doesn't
this suggest that there's something wrong with his teachings?
13. Buddha was a monotheist and a prophet?
14. You believe Manifestations are all sinless. Moses, Abraham and others would disagree.
Who are we to believe; them or your obscure beliefs?
15. In "Baha'u'llah and the New Era" (official Baha'i text) Abdu'l Baha ("Slave of Baha", the
infallible guide and eldest son of Baha'u'llah) stated that the Kingdom of God would be
established on earth by 1957. Where is it, and why has this statement been removed from
the 1970 republication?
16. Bab declared Mirza Yahya (Baha'u'llah's brother) as his successor and presented
Baha'u'llah as an inferior. Why do Baha'is suppress this fact?
17. If Baha'is are so peaceful, why was the faith founded on violence and assassinations
between supporters of Mirza Yahya and Baha'u'llah?
18. You believe Christianity was perverted during the first century (as per Shoghi Effendi's
claim). Isn't this hypocritical coming from a faith that suppresses source materials and
revises the writings of deceased authors in futile attempts to make your beliefs match
historical reality?
19. Abdu'l Baha "excommunicated" practically all his closest relatives and deprived them of
their income from Baha'u'llah's estate after his fathers death. Do you agree that your
infallible guide was a cruel and heartless individual?
20. Based on the example set by the infallible Abdu'l Baha, Covenant-breakers (heretics and
apostates) are often treated unkindly and ostracized by other Baha'is. So what makes your
faith any better than mainstream Islam?
[edit] Qur'anists
1. Why do you deny the hadith? Is it because you are ashamed of your prophet?
2. Does it bother you that even without the hadith, the Qur'an sanctions pedophilia,
domestic abuse, and many other crimes? Shouldn't you embrace your apostasy and get rid
of the Qur'an?
3. Why do some of you accept the hadiths that make Muhammad look good and reject the
ones that make him look bad? Do you enjoy being intellectually dishonest?
4. The historical evidence for Muhammad is found in the hadith and sirat. If you do not
accept these sources, how do you know your prophet ever existed?
5. If you reject the hadith, you lose the whole context and order of the Qur'anic revelations.
So is there no compulsion in religion or do you have to slay the idolaters wherever you
find them?
6. Why do you believe the Qur'an is the uncorrupted word of God, when the narrators of
corrupted hadith are the same people who passed down the Qur'an?
7. The Qur'an never explains how to offer salat. Who taught you how to pray?
8. The Qur'an says there should be 3 daily prayers. Who told you to pray 5 times?
9. The Qur'an mentions Abu Lahab. Without referencing "corrupted" hadith, please tell us
who is he and why does Allah hate him?
10. Is it upsetting knowing that most Muslims think you follow an obscure cult and that
you're a non-Muslim?
11. One can be a Muslim their entire life without ever meeting a "Qur'anist". So why are
there so many of you on the net?
12. Why accuse the Sunnis and Shi'ites, who've been following hadith for 1000+ years, of
innovation, when it's you who's the innovator?
13. What did Muhammad look like? How many wives did he have and what were their
names? What were the names of his children? How old was he when he first received his
prophethood? When and how did he die? Do you even know anything about your
14. Why do you accept the revelations given to someone who you know nothing about?
15. Did you know that Rashad Khalifa was a lying pedophile and rapist?
16. If you don't accept the history behind the compilation of the Qur'an, what makes it
different from any other poorly written Medieval text? How do you know that (like The
True Furqan) it's not an old parody?
