Does the Bible Predict the Coming of Muhammad? by Dr. Tony Costa

In Islamic apologetics one inevitably comes across Muslims who, in their interaction with Jews and with Christians in particular, argue that the Bible mentions and prophesied the Islamic prophet Muhammad. This argument usually comes as a surprise to Christians and Jews, and those who are familiar with their Scriptures who will often reply that they have never seen any such references to Muhammad. Many prominent Muslim apologists have written and argued for the biblical support [...]

The Principal Duties of Islam: The Isma Doctrine by John Gilchrist

1. The Development of the Isma Doctrine. Throughout the Muslim world today it is generally believed that all of the prophets enjoyed an isma, a protection against sin, and that they were accordingly sinless. It is one of the anomalies of Islam that this Doctrine has been established and maintained against the plain teaching of the Qur'an and Hadith to the contrary.

What every Christian needs to know about the Hadith and the Sunnah by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5-Minute read).  Traditionally, the word Hadīth’ (Arabic: حديث‎ ʾhādīṯ or plural ahādīth أحاديث) [1] means ‘communication’ or ‘narrative’ and in an Islamic setting, it would pertain to the stories about the life of Prophet Muhammad and his companions. Shaik Kadir in his helpful book, ‘Islam Explained’, writes; “Apart from the Qur’an, there is another book that Muslims rely on for guidance — the Hadith, which contains the words and deeds of the Prophet.

The Qur’an before the Qur’an by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(15-Minute read). Keith Small wrote that any religion professing to be the sole foundation of truth should never shy away from any form of scrutiny. He wrote; “Many people of all faiths and no faith have come to realize that religious tradition cannot be followed blindly. If a religion is to commend itself in this age, it must be open to the hardest and best questions put to it. We no longer live in [...]

A discussion about the version of the Bible available to Muhammad by Prof. Henk G. Stoker & Paul Derengowski

ABSTRACT It is a mandate that all Muslims believe in all previous revelations given by God along with the Qur'an (Surah 2:4). Relative to discussions with Christians, Muslims are required to believe the Bible. Some Muslim apologists today contend that the Bible has been 'corrupted' or tainted through the infusion of faulty doctrines and the exclusion of valuable texts that support Islamic ideas by dubious scribes and malicious copyists. According to them there is no [...]

A Critique of “Jesus & the Injeel” by John Fontain by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

John Fontain has written a little booklet scrutinizing various themes making large claims concerning the Bible, Jesus and the Christian understanding of the Gospel. I do not endeavor in this evaluation to look at everything Mr. Fontain mentioned and as far possible tried to keep it short and precise, assessing his claims from a Biblical Christian and Scholarly understanding. About the cover: Just an interesting observation about the cover of this little booklet. The quality [...]
