How our world has changed! These days it is impossible to escape the daily news of a suicide bomber somewhere in Iraq or Pakistan, a Christian girl captured and forcibly converted to Islam in Egypt, raging mobs burning Churches in Indonesia, rape epidemics by Muslim men in England and Sweden and the constant threats to blow up the West because we have “insulted” the Religion of Peace. And we in the West meekly accept what the Imams tell us, that Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship the same God.
Of course, the Quran confirms this in Sura 29.46:
“And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One, and unto Him we surrender”.
Even to the casual observer, the “God” of the Muslims seems so different to the Christian Jesus who brought a message of loving your fellow man. Allah requires Muslims to hate their fellow man (who is not a Muslim).
Both Christian and Muslim believe their God is the all powerful God of creation. Unlike the Bible, the Quran is supposed to be the direct word of God given to the prophet Mohammed.
In this article then, we will explore whether Allah can be the creator God by analysing the Quran, and also whether Allah can be the same God as Yahweh in the Bible.
Many people know that the Arabs were Moon worshippers and that the Kaaba originally contained 360 idols.
It is useful to read an earlier article on this site by Dan Zaremba called “Yahweh or Hubal” which also addresses this topic and examines the earlier practices of the desert Arabs. Read article (here).
Before we tackle the first question as to whether Allah can be the creator God based on his own revelations to Mohammed, we should first discuss creationism. We appreciate there are many readers on this site who don’t believe in God and also necessarily in an act of creation for our universe. However, it is worth exploring first.
Darwinism versus Intelligent Design
It is sad that so many education institutions today are teaching Darwinism as if it is a fact and that there is no need for a creator God. This is a reflection of the decline in Western society that we try to remove God from every fabric of our lives. Many decades ago Science certainly backed a Darwinist approach, but today our understanding is much deeper and Intelligent Design should be taught and debated in our Education System.
We will quote a few examples here from an excellent book on this subject called “The Case for a Creator” by Lee Strobel.
Big Bang Theory for Universe
It is widely accepted now that our universe had a beginning (about 13.7 billion years ago) and hence this supports an Intelligent Designer. There is the famous Kalam Cosmological argument which is attributed to a Muslim scholar al-Ghazali (b1058 - d1111) which states:
- Whatever begins to exist has a cause
- The universe began to exist, therefore
- The universe has a cause.
It is impossible for Darwinism to explain the Big Bang for Creation.
The Anthropic Principle
One of the most amazing findings about our Universe is that the settings of over 30 parameters necessary for life are so finely tuned that it is a miracle that life exists at all.
Moreover, these finely tuned settings were together at the start of creation leaving no time for a “Darwinian” evolution. Let us consider statements from prominent scientists here.
“Would it not be strange if a Universe without purpose accidently created humans who are so obsessed with purpose?” [Sir John Templeton]
“Through my scientific work I have come to believe more and more strongly that the physical universe is put together with an ingenuity so astonishing that I cannot accept it as merely a brute fact”. [Paul Davies, former professor of Theoretical Physics at University of Adelaide].
“I do not believe that any scientists who examine the evidence would fail to draw the inference that the laws of nuclear physics have been deliberately designed with regard to the consequences they produce inside stars”. [Astrophysicist Sir Fred Hoyle]
This is not the place for a detailed discussion but the settings of the strong and weak nuclear force, gravity, the mass ratio of proton to neutron, the cosmological constant and many more are so finely tuned that any natural “Darwinian” development is simply absurd. Darwinism fails totally on the Anthropic Principle.
Flagellum; the world’s most efficient motor.
Discovered in 1973, flagellum propels cells like a rotary propeller. The flagellum’s propeller is long and whip-like, made out of a protein called flagellin. This is attached to a drive shaft by a hook protein, which acts as a universal joint, allowing the propeller and drive shaft to rotate freely. Several types of protein act as bushing material to allow the drive shaft to penetrate the bacterial wall and attach to the rotary motor. Energy is generated by a flow of acid through the bacterial membrane. The propeller can spin at 10,000rpm, stop within a quarter of a turn and spin in the other direction at 10,000rpm. Incredible! The simple truth is that the flagellum won’t work unless all components exist together and this is where Darwinian evolution again fails.
Only Intelligent Design can explain the origins of the Universe, the Anthropic Principle and Irreducible Complexity. So why don’t we include Intelligent Design in our Academic Institutions?
In truth, Darwinism is observational and explains evolution at a macro level only and not at the fundamental level. Comparing Darwinism to Intelligent Design is a bit like comparing Newtonian Physics to Einstein’s General Relativity.
We have seen how incredibly complex our universe is, so now we should consider our first question in detail.
Q1. Is ALLAH the Creator God of the Universe?
Muslims claim that the Quran is the direct word of Allah unaltered by human hands. [Sura 85:21-22]
Therefore we should see the wisdom to match what we know about our Universe and ourselves.
We shall consider some text that relate to the Universe and the Earth and also to the creation of man.
Creation of Universe and Earth
Consider this extract from Sura 41:9-12. This is a popular quote that Muslims use to show Allah’s greatness.
“Say (O Muhammad, unto the idolaters): Disbelieve ye verily in Him Who created the earth in two Days.
He set on the (earth), mountains standing firm, high above it, and bestowed blessings on the earth, and measure therein all things to give them nourishment in due proportion, in four Days.
So He completed them as seven firmaments in two Days, and He assigned to each heaven its duty and command. And We adorned the lower heaven with lights”.
Let us now analyse this extract. We notice two things:
- Allah created the Earth first and then the Heavens, and
- Creation took 8 “days” [Earth-2, Mountains etc-4, Heavens-2].
We know our Universe is about 13.7 billion years and that the Earth formed from our Solar system and is about 4.5 billion years. The Earth was NOT created first!
In Sura 25:59 “He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between, in six days”, Allah said creation took 6 “days”. So was it 6 days or 8 days? Did Allah fail Primary school maths?
In summary, Sura 41:9-12 does NOT represent the Truth as we know it.
Mountains as extraterrestrial “pegs”
Consider Sura 78:6-7 which states:
“Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse, And the mountains as pegs?”
Muslims explain this as saying that Allah gave mountains deep roots to stop the Earth from shaking.
However Geology tells us that it is the colliding of tectonic plates that force mountains to form, and this actually represents instability, not stability as Muslims claim.
From an article on this site by Mumin Salih entitled The Quran: The Mountains are Extra Terrestrial. Read article (here).
“According to the Quran, the earth and the mountains are two separate entities, just like the earth and the skies are also two separate entities. The Quran asserts that the mountains did not originate from the earth, but were brought from ‘outside’ and then erected on the earth to fix it and stop it from swaying!”
The Arabs, like many other nations at the time, believed that the world was a massive flat land that was attached to the sky until separated by a god. The Arabs believed that it was Allah, their moon god, who did the separation. The Quran confirms this myth in verse:
Q.21: 30 “Do not the unbeliever’s see that the skies and earth were stitched together, and then we separated them”.
Allah’s claims about mountains are contrary to our knowledge and are plain silly.
Human Reproduction and sperm
Allah being all-knowing all-wise advises us how man is created in Sura 86:5-7.
“Now let man but think from what he is created!
He is created from a drop emitted Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs”.
Once again, we know that sperm is produced in the testicles, not from between the backbone and the ribs.
Allah can NOT be the Creator God based on his scientific revelations.
If Allah then is NOT the Creator God, then we must consider the next Question.
Q2. Is ALLAH the God of the Bible?
This is perhaps the most important question of all, because this is how Muslims get “cheap conversions” by saying that Jews and Christians worship the same God and that the Quran is the final revelation. Consider Sura 29:46.
“And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One”.
So this is very clear, but is it TRUE?
The God of Creation
Unlike the Quran, the Bible offers no scientific “proofs”, and Yahweh (the God in the Bible) is called the Creator. We have shown that Allah is NOT the creator God, and hence this implies he is NOT Yahweh.
The Name of God
When Moses was at Horeb and encountered the burning bush, he was instructed by an angel of the Lord thus:
“YHWY, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation”. [Exodus 3:14-15]
The Quran has no mention of Yahweh as God, even though it is clear this name was to stand forever.
And the Bible says that men began to call on the name of YHWY after the birth of Enoch, the son of Seth who was the son of Adam. [Genesis 4:26]
When Moses asked who he is to say God was, God said “I AM who I am”. When Jesus was preaching in the temple about Abraham, he stated “Very truly I tell you, before Abraham was, I AM”. [John 8:58] So Jesus was referring to his divinity and that he was of ancient origins as the prophet Micah had predicted. [Micah 5:2] Jesus also claimed to be “the Alpha and Omega” in Revelation 1:8. Now WHWY means “he is or he will be” and is the third person form of “I AM”. So from Abraham to Moses and to Jesus, the name for God is WHWY and is constant. This is accepted by both Jew and Christian. However the name WHWY does not appear at all in the Quran. Allah which is an abbreviation of Al Ilah or “the God” is always given as the name of the Muslim God.
In no way can the name WHWY be the same as Allah.
Separation of Church and State
Islam is totalitarian and demands no separation of Church and State but combines politics, law, civil behaviour and faith worship into a single entity.
Both Judaism and Christianity are strongly about a separation of Church and State.
Allah defines things as either Halal (permitted) or Haram (forbidden) whereas WHYH defines things as Holy or secular. In the Bible, God appointed prophets, priests and Kings as separate and distinct functions of office.
At the time of Abraham, he was served by the High Priest Melchizedek in Genesis 14.
Moses was served by the High Priest Aaron.
In a story in 1 Samuel 13, Saul was relieved of his kingship by God because he performed the priestly duty of offering sacrifice instead of waiting for Samuel. Yahweh was very clear on this separation. Allah is not.
Jesus also offered his famous quote “give to Caesar what is Caesars” when asked about paying taxes.
When brought before Pilate Jesus remarked “my kingdom is not of this world”.
Hence from Abraham, to Moses and to Jesus there was a clear separation of Church and State.
Wine was served as a priestly duty from Melchizedek, to Aaron and to Jesus, yet Allah bans wine!
Islam is distinctly different to Judaism and Christianity as it is totalitarian.
Building a House for God
When Moses built the sanctuary to worship WHWY in the wilderness, God gave him very specific instructions as to the floor plan and the requirements. [Exodus 36]. The temple consisted of three parts. An inner court which connected to an inner sanctuary, called the “Holy of Holies”, and an outer court. The Holy of Holies was to house the Ark of the Covenant which Moses was to build with specific instructions. The presence of the Lord filled the Ark of the Covenant, a concept which is foreign to Islam as they believe that Allah is distant or remote.
Likewise when Solomon built a temple for WHWY on Mt Moriah over the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he was building to a similar plan. [1 Kings 6,7,8] Note that God asked Solomon, a Jew, to build a temple to God on the Holy Mountain. God did NOT ask an Arab Muslim to build a Mosque on Mt. Moriah. The Quran states that Adam was a Muslim [Sura 2.37] and also Moses was a Muslim. [Sura 7.143]
The Dome of the Rock
However, in 685AD the Muslim leader Abd al-Malik did construct a shrine to the prophet Mohammed on Mount Moriah after the second Temple built by Herod was destroyed in 70AD by Roman soldiers led by Titus. The Dome of the Rock as it is called was completed in 691AD and also the Al Aqsa mosque was built behind it and finished in 705AD. An interesting and not insignificant fact is that the Dome of the Rock was NOT built over the site of Solomon’s temple but some one hundred metres to the South. Because of this, it stands in the Court of the Gentiles and is NOT holy to WHYW at all.
In 533BC, a prophecy was given to the prophet Daniel by the angel Gabriel about a structure that would be set up on the Holy Mountain.
“From the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that desolates is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days”. [Dan 12:11]
Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon destroyed Jerusalem and the sanctuary in 586BC but it was in 583BC, the 23rd year of his reign, when the last group of 745 Jews were taken away to captivity. [Jeremiah 52:30].
His reign began in 606AD so his 23rd year would have been 583BC. Now the 1290 days are to be interpreted as prophetic years of 360 days. Converting to astronomical solar years we get 1271.5 years as the vision of the prophecy. Moving forward 1271 years from 583BC we get 1271 – 583 = 688AD.
Hence the fulfilment date becomes 688AD which was the mid-point of the building program of Abd al-Malik. Now in over 1300 years no other structure has been built on Mt Moriah so the Dome of the Rock, the shrine to Allah’s prophet Mohammed, is an Abomination that Desolates in the eyes of WHWY.
- Allah is not the Creator God and so is not Yahweh
- The names of Allah and Yahweh can never be reconciled
- Allah demands totalitarianism while Yahweh demands a separation of Church and State
- The temple design for Yahweh is totally different to a mosque
- The Bible prophesised that the Dome of the Rock is an Abomination to Yahweh.
- We have presented just a few but it is obvious that Allah is NOT Yahweh, the God of the Bible.
So we have shown that Allah is neither the Creator God nor is he the God of the Jew and Christian.
We now have to ask ourselves a third question.
Q3. Is ALLAH the Satan of the Bible?
Before proceeding we should establish how the Bible describes Satan. We acknowledge here that many readers are not interested in the Bible but there are over 2 billion people who claim to be Christian.
To understand this story we need to evaluate Revelation chapter 12.
Satan is described as a fallen angel who was jealous and wanted to assume God’s position, and because of evil, Satan was defeated in a battle and he and his followers were cast down to Earth.
Satan is described as a Dragon with seven heads. This is symbolic as the seven heads represent the seven Satanic or Beast empires that appear on Earth to persecute God’s people.
The story tells of how the woman (Israel) gives birth to a child (Jesus) who was taken up to Heaven and how :
“the dragon was angry with this woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her children, those who keep the commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus”. [Revelation 12:17]
Now we understand from this that Satan wants to:
- Make war on Israel
- Make war on the Christians.
Allah of course in Muslim book 41 Number 6985 demands that Muslims fight and kill all the Jews.
Allah also has Isa denying the crucifixion and destroying the Christian church by “breaking crosses”.
Allah is a perfect fit with Satan in wanting Muslims to kill Jews and destroy Christianity.
Denying the crucifixion and Resurrection
Jesus was the fulfilment of prophecy and even as he died on the cross his last words which reflected God’s plan for mankind were “it is finished”. [John 19:30]
There was a remarkable moment when Jesus told his disciples that he must be tortured, killed and would rise again after 3 days. When Peter intervened and said this must not happen, Jesus said “Get behind me Satan”. [Matthew 16:23] Jesus is saying that to deny the crucifixion and the resurrection is to follow Satan.
And what does Allah say in Sura 4:157?
“That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- 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”.
So Allah denies the crucifixion and hence is identifying as Satan.
How is Satan identified?
The great prophet Isaiah in chapter 14:12 talks about the fallen angel Satan and describes him as “Hilal ben Shahar” Hilal can be translated as “crescent moon” and Shahar as “morning star”.
So Satan is identified as the crescent moon and morning star. Sound familiar?
Look at the top of every minaret in a mosque or the flags of Turkey or Pakistan.
What you see is the crescent moon and morning star.
So over 2,700 years ago, Isaiah tagged Satan with the symbol of Islam!
The Mark of the Beast
“Also it causes all to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell if he doesn’t have the mark”. [Revelation 13:16]
The badge of allegiance worn by Muslims today on the right arm and/or the forehead is the Bismillah with the crossed swords. Bismillah means “in the name of Allah”.
In Revelation, what the Apostle John saw is recorded as the Greek symbols Chi, Xi, Stigma, or the number “666”. However, what if John had seen the Islamic badge of honour in the crossed swords, and “in the name of Allah”, and recorded it in Greek as best he could. In badges, Allah is usually written vertically when incorporated into a badge (as in Figure 2 below).
So could the angel have shown John the Islamic badge of submission (Fig.2) and did John then record it in Greek as Chi-Xi-Stigma which translates as the number 666?
Was the mark of the beast really meant to be the Islamic badge of submission?
So who are Satan’s Soldiers?
From the 10th century BC right through to the 6th century BC there are consistent predictions as to who will fight with the AntiChrist against God’s peoples.
Psalm 83 discusses the enemies of God in the Last Days and how they will plot together to destroy Israel.
“with one mind they plot against you; they form an alliance against you”. [Psalm 83:5]
The Psalmist then goes on to name these nations that fight with the Antichrist as Edom (Jordan to Saudi Arabia), Moab and Ammon (Jordan), Gebal (north Lebanon), Tyre (Lebanon), Philistia (Gaza), Ishmaelites and Hagarites (Arabs in general), Assyria (Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Egypt and Iran), Amalek (Jordan, south-west of Dead Sea).
Isaiah mentions the OT countries of Babylon, Assyria, Philistia, Moab, Damascus, Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia and Egypt.
Ezekiel names Magog (western Turkey), Rosh (north-west Iran and Azerbaijan), Ancient Persia (Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, western China), Meshech (Turkey), Tubal (Turkey), Ethiopia (Ethiopia and/or Eritrea), Put (Libya and/or Sudan), Gomer (southern Crimea, Dagestan and Chechnya and/or eastern Turkey), Beth-togarmah (southern Turkey and northern Syria).
So for a period of 500 years, the prophets have consistently named the same Middle East countries as producing the future soldiers for Satan. And they are all Islamic countries today. The soldiers of Satan will be comprised of Muslims from all the neighbouring nations to Israel. No surprises there.
What is the preferred method of execution?
Revelation 20 talks about the souls who have been beheaded for belief in Jesus and of course Islam condones beheading because Mohammed practised it.
Both Sura 47:4 and Sura 8:12 call on the faithful Muslims to “strike at the necks of infidels”.
Hence beheading identifies Islam with the soldiers of Satan.
The False Prophet and the Powerful Delusion
In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus claims that only false prophets will follow him, and in 2 Peter 3 it is stated that only false prophets promise sexual rewards in Heaven. Mohammed of course came after Jesus and did promise sexual rewards in Heaven with 72 virgins for martyrs.
Mohammed of course broke the TEN Commandments of Moses and was a murdering, raping, Jew hating, slave trading paedophile. God promised in 2 Thessalonians 2 to send a powerful delusion to lead people astray who ignored previous revelation, and what better than Mohammed.
Allah requires all Muslims to follow Mohammed’s example, and if they do, they will automatically break the TEN Commandments of Moses.
What a powerful delusion!
Islam’s Holiest sites
According to Muslims, Mecca is its holiest site but in Islamic eschatology Mecca will be destroyed.
“The final battle will be waged by faithful Muslims coming on the backs of horses...carrying black banners. They will stand on the east side of the Jordan river and will wage war that the Earth has never seen before. The true Messiah who is the Islamic Mahdi...will defeat Europe...will lead this army of Seljuks. He will preside over the world from Jerusalem because Mecca would have been destroyed.” [Yawm Al-Ghadab, Safar Alhwaly]
How extraordinary that Allah can’t protect his holiest site, but of course, Satan’s plan was always to conquer Jerusalem and stand on the Holy Mountain and declare that he is God. [2 Thessalonians 2] You only have to listen to Iran’s President Ahmadinejad to understand how desperately they want the Mahdi to appear and lead them to a crushing victory. Mecca was never the Holiest site as Jerusalem was ALWAYS the Prize.
Allah is NO supporter of the Arts
Researchers tell us that the human body is designed as a receiver of sound vibrations. It appears as if we have been designed to enjoy music. It is reported that about 50% of near death experiences involve hearing music “with a beautiful floating sound”. Read the article (here).
We have often reflected on why Allah bans art forms like music and singing, but if you take that leap of faith and consider that Allah is really Satan, there may be a simple solution.
The same prophet that describes the followers of Satan also alludes to the fact that Satan was involved with music before he fell from grace. Ezekiel 28:13 says “the workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created”. We know there were harps in Heaven from Revelation 5:8 and 15:2.
Before he fell from grace, Satan was described as the “anointed cherub” and was adorned with every jewel imaginable. If Satan was so admired, his fall from grace could have triggered this animosity to the art forms that enoble and uplift mankind. Consider what Allah’s prophet says:
Hadith Qudsi 19:5: "The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of ignorance."
Muhammad also said:
- “Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affair of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance.”
- “On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.”
So did Satan get the sulks when he was ejected from Heaven and now denies his followers on Earth the pleasures that music delivers?
In Summary, we have shown the many ways that Islam is identified with Satan in the Bible. From the list of nations that will fight with the Antichrist, Islam is the ONLY credible contender.
Mohammed was a false Prophet. Islam is the Religion of Satan. The Quran is Satan’s War Manual.
Before making our concluding remarks, we should consider the claim by Muslims that Allah sent down the Quran because Jews and Christians had corrupted the Bible. Let us consider this now.
Was the Quran the final revelation?
We will let the Bible have the final say here. In the last chapter of the last book of the Bible, Jesus gives this warning:
“I warn everyone who hears the words of prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book. If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away that person’s share in the tree of Life”. [Revelation 22:18-19]
The Quran ADDS to the book by coming after Revelation, and the Quran also TAKES AWAY because Muslims are told to ignore the Bible. This message should be a warning to anyone who wants to follow Islam.
We have shown by analysing the Quran that Allah is NOT the Creator God of the Universe.
Also we have shown that Allah is NOT Yahweh, the God of the Bible.
By examining the profile of Satan in the Bible we can only reach the conclusion that Islam is the religion of Satan.
So to answer our question “Who is Allah”, the answer is Allah is Satan!
BAN ISLAM...BAN the QURAN...ISLAMIC is SATANIC
