Prophet Muhammad’s Hadith Stupidities

Hadith or sayings of the prophet are a collection of many texts which preserve Mohammads sayings and actions. Of the many Hadith collections, Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim are considered the most trustworthy by Sunni Islamic scholars. Sunni Muslims make up over 80 percent of the Muslim population in the world.

Allah – The Greatest Deceiver of them All

Allah – The Greatest Deceiver of them All

Sam ShamounThe Quran describes Allah as the best deceiver there is, a liar who is not above using the same evil and wicked schemes of his opponents.For example, the Quran calls Allah a makr, in fact the best makr there is:But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers (Wamakaroowamakara AllahuwaAllahukhayru al-makireena)! S. 3:54; cf. 8:30

Allah is the best of deceivers

Other texts that identify Allah as a makr include:Are they then secure from Allah’s deception (makra Allahi)? None deemeth himself secure from Allah’s deception (makra Allahi) save folk that perish. S. 7:99 So they schemed a scheme: and We schemed a scheme (Wamakaroo makran wamakarna makran), while they perceived not. S. 27:50The word for deception/deceiver/scheme is makr. The lexical sources define the term as:Miim-Kaf-Ra = To practice deceit or guile or circumvention, practice evasion or elusion, to plot, to exercise art or craft or cunning, act with policy, practice stratagem. makara vb. (1) perf. act. 3:54, 3:54, 7:123, 13:42, 14:46, 16:26, 16:45, 27:50, 40:45, 71:22 impf. act. 6:123, 6:123, 6:124, 8:30, 8:30, 8:30, 10:21, 12:102, 16:127, 27:70, 35:10 n.vb. 7:99, 7:99, 7:123, 10:21, 10:21, 12:31, 13:33, 13:42, 14:46, 14:46, 14:46, 27:50, 27:50, 27:51, 34:33, 35:10, 35:43, 35:43, 71:22 pcple. act. 3:54, 8:30 LL, V7, p: 256 (Source)And:He practised DECEIT, GUILE, or CIRCUMVENTION, desiring to do another a foul, an abominable, or an evil action, clandestinely or without his knowing whence it proceeded. (Lane’s Arabic-English Lexicon; source)Lest Muslims accuse these lexicons of bias or distortion notice what Muslim scholar Dr. Mahmoud M. Ayoub says when he asks,”how the word makr (scheming or plotting), which implies deceitfulness or dishonesty, could be attributed to God.” (The Quran and Its InterpretersThe House of Imran [State University of New York Press [SUNY], Albany 1992], Volume II, p. 165; italic emphasis ours)After listing several Muslim sources he quotes a renowned Muslim expositor named ar-Razi who wrote that,”scheming (makr) is actually an act of deception aiming at causing evil. It is not possible to attribute deception to God. Thus the word is one of the muttashabihat [multivalent words of the Quran].” (Ibid., p. 166; italic emphasis ours)Unfortunately for ar-Razi, the Quran attributes deception to Allah since it identifies him as the best makr there is.Ayoub also sources one Muslim who actually boasted of Allah being the best conniver/deceiver/schemer etc.,”Qurtubi observes that some scholars have considered the words ‘best of schemers’ to be one of God’s beautiful names. Thus one would pray, ‘O Best of Schemers, scheme for me!’ Qurtubi also reports that the Prophet used to pray, ‘O God, scheme for me, and do not scheme against me!’ (Qurtubi, IV, pp. 98-99; cf. Zamakhshari, I, p. 366).” (Ibid., p. 166)And here, also, is how one of the earliest sources on the life of Muhammad interpreted Q. 8:30:Then he reminds the apostle of His favour towards him when the people plotted against him ‘to kill him, or to wound him, or to drive him out; and they plotted and God plotted, and is the best of plotters.’ i.e. I DECEIVED them with My firm GUILE so that I delivered you from them. (The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, with introduction and notes by Alfred Guillaume [Oxford University Press, Karachi, Tenth impression 1995], p. 323; capital emphasis ours)Thus, the Quran unashamedly calls Muhammad’s god the best liar and deceiver of them all! It even dares to say that ALL deception belongs completely to Allah:And verily, those before them did deceive/scheme (makara), but all deception/scheming is Allah’s (falillahi al-makru). He knows what every person earns, and the disbelievers will know who gets the good end. S. 13:42In fact, the Quran states that Allah actually raises wicked individuals to deceive and scheme:Even so have we placed in every city, ringleaders of its wicked ones, to scheme therein (liyamkuroo): but only against themselves shall they scheme (yamkuroona)! and they know it not. S. 6:123 RodwellAnd further commands people to do evil so that he can then have a reason to destroy them!And when We would destroy a township We send commandment to its folk who live at ease, AND AFTERWARD they commit abomination therein, and so the Word (of doom) hath effect for it, and we annihilate it with complete annihilation. S. 17:16 PickthallThe Quran uses another word to denote that Allah is a liar, a schemer who has no problems using guile, namely kayd:And those who cry lies to Our signs We will draw them on little by little whence they know not; and I respite them — assuredly My guile (kaydee) is sure. S. 7:182-183 Arberry and I shall respite them — assuredly My guile (kaydee) is sure. S. 68:45 ArberryThe lexicons provide the following definitions:Kaf-Ya-Dal (Kaf-Alif-Dal) = To be about to, be just on the point of, be well nigh, intend, wish, practise an artful device, desire, contrive/plot/devise such a thing, worked or laboured at or upon anything, to do something clandestinely, to deceive/beguile/circumvent, means of evading/eluding, vomited, emitted fire, had menstrual flux, gave up his spirit. kada vb. (1) perf. act. 12:76 impf. act. 12:5, 21:57, 86:15, 86:16 impv. 7:195, 11:55, 77:39 n.vb. 3:120, 4:76, 7:183, 8:18, 12:5, 12:28, 12:28, 12:33, 12:34, 12:50, 12:52, 20:60, 20:64, 20:69, 21:70, 22:15, 37:98, 40:25, 40:37, 52:42, 52:46, 68:45, 77:39, 86:15, 86:16, 105:2 pcple. pass. 52:42 LL, V7, p: 166, 167 (Source; underline emphasis ours)The Quran furnishes plenty of examples that exemplify the negative aspect and nature of this term, e.g. those who use kayd are deliberately intending something evil which results in their judgement for employing such wicked schemes:What, have they feet wherewith they walk, or have they hands wherewith they lay hold, or have they eyes wherewith they see, or have they ears wherewith they give ear? Say: ‘Call you then to your associates; then try your guile (keedooni) on me, and give me no respite. S. 7:195 Arberry He [Jacob] said, ‘O my son [Joseph], relate not thy vision to thy brothers, lest they devise against thee some guile (fa yakeedoo laka kayda). Surely Satan is to man a manifest enemy. S. 12:5 Arberry So when he [Potiphar] saw his [Joseph] shirt torn from behind, he said: Lo! this is of the guile of you (kaydikunna) women. Lo! the guile of you (kaydakunna) is very great. S. 12:28 Pickthall So gather your guile (kaydakum); then come in battle-line. Whoever today gains the upper hand shall surely prosper. S. 20:64 Arberry the day when their guile (kayduhum) shall avail them naught, and they shall not be helped. S. 52:46 Arberry if you have a trick, try you now to trick Me (kaydun fa keedooni)!’ S. 77:39 ArberryAllah is even portrayed as stooping down to the level of the deceivers and liars by acting like them in his use of guile:They are devising guile (ya keedoona kaydan), and I am devising guile (Wa akeedu kaydan). S. 86:15-16There is more to the story. The Quran uses yet another word in describing the deception of Allah, that word being khida/khuda/khada:Verily, the hypocritesseek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them (Inna al-munafiqeenayukhadiaaoonaAllaha wahuwakhadiaauhum). And when they stand up for As-Salat (the prayer), they stand with laziness and to be seen of men, and they do not remember Allah but little. S. 4:142 Hilali-KhanHere, once again, is the lexical meaning of this specific word:Kh-Dal-Ayn = To hide/conceal, double or fold, deceive or outwit, pretend, to enter, vary in state/condition, refrain or refuse, relinquish, to be in little demand of, deviate from the right course, resist/unyield/incompliant, turn away and behave proudly. khada’a vb. (1) impf. act. 2:9, 8:62 pcple. act. 4:142 khada’a vb. (3) impf. act. 2:9, 4:142 LL, V2, p: 344, 345, 346, 347 (Source)Lest there be any confusion concerning the fact that this word means that Allah is a deceiver notice how this term is used in the following references:They (think to) deceive Allah (Yukhadiaaoona) and those who believe, while they only deceive (yakhdaaoona) themselves, and perceive (it) not! S. 2:9 Hilali-Khan And if they would deceive thee (yakhdaaooka), then lo! Allah is Sufficient for thee. He it is Who supporteth thee with His help and with the believers, S. 8:6 PickthallIs there any doubt that the unbelievers were using deception as they tried to deceive Muhammad and his companions? Just as there is no doubt that Allah also uses deception in deceiving them!It gets worse. Satan accused Allah of misleading or deceiving him:He said: Now, because Thou hast sent me astray (aghwaytanee), verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Thy Right Path. S. 7:16 Pickthall [Iblis (Satan)] said: “O my Lord! Because you misled me(aghwaytanee), I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead (walaoghwiyannahum) them all. S. 15:39 Hilali-KhanWhat makes this last reference rather interesting is that Satan promises to do to mankind what Allah did to him, namely, pervert/deceive/mislead people from the path!Lest a Muslim say that these are the lies of Satan, that the enemy was merely slandering Allah, here is a text where the Quran acknowledges that the Devil was right since Allah does pervert/deceive/mislead people from the way:And my sincere counsel will not profit you, if I desire to counsel you sincerely, if God desires to pervert you (yughwiyakum); He is your Lord, and unto Him you shall be returned.’ S. 11:34 ArberryTo say that this is amazing would be a wild understatement.Concluding RemarksOur analysis has shown that Muhammad’s deity is a deceiver who cannot be trusted since he lies without hesitation.A Muslim may contend that Allah only deceives unbelievers who deserve it. The problem with this assertion is that the Muslim scripture teaches that Allah doesn’t merely deceive unbelievers but also his followers.For example, Allah deceived Muhammad into thinking that the fighting men at Badr were fewer in number than they actually were:When Allah showed them to you in your dream as few; and if He had shown them to you as many you would certainly have become weak-hearted and you would have disputed about the matter, but Allah saved (you); surely He is the Knower of what is in the breasts. And when He showed them to you, when you met, as few in your eyes and He made you to appear little in their eyes, in order that Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, and to Allah are all affairs returned. S. 8:43-44 ShakirHence, Allah lies and deceives both believers and unbelievers without discrimination. Now contrast this with how the true God Yahweh operates:”Early in the morning, Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon) and all his men camped at the spring of Harod. The camp of Midian was north of them in the valley near the hill of Moreh. The LORD said to Gideon, ‘You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands. In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own strength has saved her, announce now to the people, “Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.”’ So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained. But the LORD said to Gideon, ‘There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will sift them for you there. If I say, “This one shall go with you,” he shall go; but if I say, “This one shall not go with you,” he shall not go.’ So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the LORD told him, ‘Separate those who lap the water with their tongues like a dog from those who kneel down to drink.’ Three hundred men lapped with their hands to their mouths. All the rest got down on their knees to drink. The LORD said to Gideon, ‘With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the other men go, each to his own place.’ So Gideon sent the rest of the Israelites to their tents but kept the three hundred, who took over the provisions and trumpets of the others. Now the camp of Midian lay below him in the valley.” Judges 7:1-8 NIVIf this weren’t bad enough, one of the greatest lies and deceptions that Allah pulled over the world is the crucifixion of Christ. According to the Quran Jesus wasn’t crucified but Allah made it seem that way, thereby foisting Biblical Christianity on the masses!And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah,” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]: S. 4:157 Hilali-Khan That they said (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 of a surety they killed him not:- Y. AliThus, Allah duped the followers of Christ into believing that Jesus died by crucifixion and further deceived them into thinking that he was then raised back to life on the third day. They then went out preaching this message boldly, with some of them dying as martyrs as a result of it!Interestingly, Allah’s schemes or deceptions are so troublesome that they even scared Muhammad. Islam’s prophet was so afraid of the schemes of his god that he prayed that Allah would not deceive him but deceive on his behalf:3551. Ibn Abbas said: “The Prophet used to supplicate, saying: ‘My Lord, aid me and do not aid against me, and grant me victory and do not grant victory over me, plot (scheme/connive/deceive) for me and do not plot (scheme/connive/deceive) against me, guide me and facilitate guidance for me, grant me victory over those who transgress against me. My Lord, make me ever-grateful to You, ever-remembering of You, ever-fearful of You, ever-obedient to You, ever-humble to You, oft-turning and returning to You. My Lord, accept my repentance, wash my sin, answer my call, make firm my proof, make firm my tongue, guide my heart, and remove the treachery of my chest (Rabbi A‘inni Wa La Tu‘in ‘Alayya, Wansurni Wa La Tansur ‘Alayya,WAMKURLi Wa LaTAMKUR‘Alayya, Wahdini Wa Yassir Lil-Huda, Wansurni ‘Ala Man Bagha ‘Alayya. Rabbij‘alni Laka Shakkaran, Laka Dhak-karan, Laka Rahhaban, Laka Mitwa‘an, Laka Mukhbitan, Ilaika Awwahan Muniba. Rabbi Taqabbal Tawabati, Waghsil Hawbati, Wa Ajib Da‘wati, Wa Thab-bit Hujjati, Wa Saddid Lisani Wahdi Qalbi, Waslu Sakhimata Sadri).’” (Sahih) … [Abu ‘Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Sahih. (English Translation of Jami‘ At-Tirmidhi, Compiled by Imam Hafiz Abu ‘Eisa Mohammad Ibn ‘Eisa At-Tirmidhi, translated by Abu Khaliyl (USA), ahadith edited and referenced by Hafiz Tahir Zubair ‘Ali Za’i [Darussalam Publishers & Distributors, First Edition: November 2007], Volume 6, From Hadith No. 3291 to 3956, Chapter 45. The Book Of Supplications From The Messenger Of Allah, pp. 258-259; capital and underline emphasis ours)Muhammad wasn’t the only person troubled by Allah’s lies since his closest companion was deftly afraid of his lord’s schemes. If one is still in doubt as to the meaning of the term makr consider Abu Bakr’s testimony who, despite being promised paradise by Muhammad, was rather uncertain about his status in the hereafter because of how unreliable and fickle his god is:”Although he had such a faith, which was too great to suffice all the inhabitants of the earth, he was afraid that his heart might go astray. So, he used to utter, while weeping: ‘Would that I have been a bitten tree!’ Whenever he was reminded of his position in Allah’s sight, he would say: ‘By Allah! I would not rest assured and feel safe from the deception of Allah (la amanu limakr Allah), even if I had one foot in paradise.’” (Khalid Muhammad Khalid, Successors of the Messenger, translated by Muhammad Mahdi al-Sharif [Dar al-Kotob al-Ilmiyah, Beirut Lebanon, 2005], Book One: Abu Bakr Has Come, p. 99; bold and italic emphasis ours)(1)Now if both Muhammad and Abu Bakr were afraid of Allah’s schemes shouldn’t Muslims also be fearful of their god’s lies and deception?This very unflattering picture of God is quite embarrassing to say the least. After all, which person would be proud of a god who is described as the best deceiver, a beguiler who schemes and deliberately plots evil in order to accomplish his purposes?Such a depiction of the Deity is unbefitting the majesty and glory of the One who called Himself the Truth and who does not lie or change his mind since it is impossible for him to do so:”God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” Numbers 23:19 “He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind.” 1 Samuel 15:29 “Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.” Psalm 31:5 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” John 14:6 “a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,” Titus 1:2 “Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged.” Hebrews 6:17-18The Quran’s description of Allah best fits the one whom the Lord Jesus identified as the father of all lies:”You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44In light of the foregoing it seems rather hard to deny that the spirit who spoke to Muhammad, the entity who is revealed in the Muslim scripture, is none other than Satan, the enemy of our souls, masquerading as God in order to deceive people away from the truth of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ:”I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preachesa Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough… For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Corinthians 11:2-4, 13-15 “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” Galatians 1:8-9Recommended Readinghttp://answering-islam.org/Shamoun/allah_deceiver.htmhttp://answering-islam.org/Authors/Wood/deceptive_god.htmhttp://answering-islam.org/Shamoun/does_god_deceive.htmhttp://answering-islam.org/Shamoun/preserved-crucifixion.htmhttp://answering-islam.org/Responses/Osama/zawadi_paul_deceiver.htmhttp://answering-islam.org/Quran/Contra/command_evil.htmEndnotes(1) It needs to be pointed out that the Muslim translator has deliberately distorted the original text of Muhammad Khalid’s book. Instead of translating the Arabic words limakr Allah as “the deception of Allah” he has decided to render it as, “from Allah’s punishment,” in order to obscure the real meaning. It seems that the Muslim translator was rather embarrassed by Abu Bakr’s statement that Allah is a deceiver whose promises of granting eternal bliss to the faithful cannot be trusted.If the reader is interested in seeing what the original text really says we suggest that they turn to page 70 of the Arabic version of Muhammad Khalid’s book.Moreover, the author conveniently forgot to mention that the reason why Abu Bakr was afraid that his heart might turn away from the faith is because this close companion of Muhammad knew what the Quran says about Allah misleading and turning people away from the guidance:Then what is the matter with you that you are divided into two parties about the hypocrites? Allah has cast them back (to disbelief) because of what they have earned. Do you want to guide him whom Allah has made to go astray? And he whom Allah has made to go astray, you will never find for him any way (of guidance). S. 4:88 And We sent not a Messenger except with the language of his people, in order that he might make (the Message) clear for them. Then Allah misleads whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. S. 14:4Abu Bakr was therefore fearful of Allah turning his heart away and thereby condemning him to hell since he knew that his god was a deceiver who couldn’t be trusted to do as he says. This is despite the fact that Muhammad had personally guaranteed his salvation!Articles by Sam ShamounAnswering Islam Home Page

Allah is Satan

allah is satan

 According to the Bible, Allah is Satan. Qur’an 1:1 indicates that Muslims worship the god of this world who is Satan who is known as the best deceiver and who leads people astray.

Let us look at what both the Bible and the Qur’an say to prove this point.

Qur’an 1:1 states that Allah is the god (lord) of this world:
1The praise be to Allah, the lord of the worlds. Allah is Satan as it is written throughout the Qur’an. The Bible states in <a href="https://biblehub.com/2_corinthians/4-4.htm”>2 Corinthians 4:4 that the god of this world is Satan: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Both verses in Qur’an 3:54 and 8:30 state that Allah is the best deceiver:
And they deceived, and Allah deceived. And Allah is the best deceiver. What does the Bible say about this? Revelation 20:10 tells us: And the devil that deceived them…

Qur’an 35:8
states that Allah leads people astray:
8…So surely Allah leads astray whom he wills and guides whom he wills. Does God lead people astray? No. Then who does the Bible say wants to lead people astray and keep them from having eternal life through Jesus Christ? Satan leads people astray. <a href="https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/1-Peter-5-8/”>1 Peter 5:8 tells us that Satan walks about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, and Revelation 12:9 states: The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray…

Qur’an 38:85 and 11:119 both state that Allah desires to fill hell with people:
85…surely I will fill hell from you and from those who followed you from among them together. 119 …“I will surely fill hell with the jinn and the people together.”

What does the Bible say about people?
God wants us to be with Him in heaven. He even sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to pay for our sins so that people can have a way to live eternally in heaven with Him. He does not want any to perish. John 3:16 states:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

More characteristics of Allah

Allah is not God because Allah is proud. Qur’an 59:23 states:
23He is Allah. There is no god except him… the proud. But the God of the Bible is meek and lowly in heart. Matthew 11:29 states: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart….

Allah is a seditionist
. Qur’an 25:20 states:
20…and we made some of you to be a sedition to some others…

Allah is a seducer
. Qur’an 11:34 states:
34 And my advice will not profit you, if I desire to advise you, if Allah was desiring to seduce you….

Allah is abominable.
Qur’an 10:100 states:
100 And it was not for a soul to believe except by Allah’s permission, and he will lay the uncleanness on those who will not understand…

Allah is wrathful
. Qur’an 2:59 states:
59So those who were unjust changed the saying to what had not been said to them, so we sent down on those unjust a wrath from the heaven because they were transgressors.

See also Qur’an 7:162.
Allah is a misleader.
88…And whomever Allah leads astray,Quran 4:88 so you will not find for him a way.

But the God of the Bible is a true leader
. See Proverb 3:5-6.
Allah is a schemer. Qur’an 68:45
45… surely my scheme is firm. Also Qur’an 86:16 states: 16and I am scheming a scheme.

Allah spreads hate. Qur’an 5:14 states:
14… so we have stirred up enmity and hatred among them….

The more we read the Qur’an, the more we know that Allah is Satan.

Is Allah the Same God as the Lord God of the Bible?


The Qur’an claims that Allah and the God of the Bible is one and the same. It can be politically convenient to hold this view and may appear to promote tolerance. Yet, for true tolerance and effective dialogue, a deeper understanding of one another’s religious claims is imperative. In this book Solomon and Debs draw on Qur’anic scholarship to present a compelling case against this doctrine of ‘sameness’. The characteristics of the God of the Bible are far removed from the Allah presented in the Qur’an. The Lord God of the Bible looks for a loving relationship with humankind whom he created in his image; in full revelation of himself, God became man on earth and dwells by his Holy Spirit in the hearts of all who ask him.
