Answer:


Non Islamic sites

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

These sites are most certainly prepared by Christian missionaries for the propagation of their religion amongst the muslims.    Instead of trying to prove that the way they follow is the right way, these people have tried to ridicule (we seek refuge in Allah from saying this) Prophet Mohamed (saws), and find faults in the faultless Holy Quran!    Their obvious target is the unsuspecting person who claims to be a muslim simply because he was born a muslim, and has little or no knowledge from the Quran and Sunnah of the Messenger (saws).  Anyone who has even basic knowledge of the Holy Quran,  will immediately recognize the lies and hatred of these missionaries towards Islam,  Allah,  Prophet Mohamed (saws), the Holy Quran, and the muslims, from the above sites.

Allah Subhanah has given each individual the freedom to do whatever he chooses for himself:  he may choose to believe in Allah and follow the Right Way, or believe in someone or something else and be astray.    The people who have introduced these sites have obviously chosen to lead people astray with their lies, ignorance and prejudice.    Rest assured, that it will not hurt the believers or Islam in any way, and that these unscrupulous people will have to give a severe accounting in the Court of Allah on an Inevitable Day.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 29:Proclaim, “This (Quran) is the Truth from your Lord:  now whosoever wills may accept it, and whosoever wills may reject it.” (As for those who reject it) We have prepared for such workers of iniquity a fire whose flames have encircled them.   There, if they ask for water ,  they will be given a drink like the dregs of oil,  which will burn their mouths!  What an evil drink, and what an evil abode!

 




We have written a letter to the administrators of one of these sites who have tried to write some words like in the Holy Quran, which we are attaching for your reference.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan

 


We have written a letter to the administrators of one of these sites who have tried to write some words like in the Holy Quran, which we are attaching for your reference.

 

 

By doing what the authors of this site has done in writing this poetry, they claim to take up the 1400 year old challenge of the Quran to produce a Surah like unto it, and claim to have a healthy dialogue with the Muslim. The muslims, I agree, have obviously over-reacted to these sites. Had they left them as it were, they would not have become so famous or infamous .... a few would have read them and taken them for what they are ... a handy-work of man himself. A better way for the authors and propagators to search the truth would be, to have read and studied the Bible and the Quran, pondered over their respective verses and concluded for themselves which were actually the words of God Almighty and followed the religion they wished to. There is no compulsion is religion, and God Almighty in His wisdom has allowed mankind to choose the way of life and religion he wishes to choose to attain salvation.

God Almighty does not want man to kindle hatred towards man ...... but rather to love and respect one another as slaves of the One Almighty God. If, as you claim, your intention is have a healthy dialogue with the Muslims, I urge you to read and study the Bible and the Quran, and determine for yourself if both are the words of the One God, if both are not the words of God, or, if one is the word of God and the other is not.

I also agree with your right of freedom of speech ... but as with all rights, your rights stop where my rights begin.... one cannot stample on the rights of the other in the pretence of freedom. This way would be most honorable in the sight of God. God Almighty, in His infinite wisdom has allowed man to do as he wants, even though He may hate it ... and I urge you to fear the Day of Judgment, when God Almighty will judge between all His created slaves, who did right and who did wrong. You claim that the site was misunderstood from the original intention of the authors, and I take your word for it. You might be able to fool me and all mankind, but you cannot play with God Almighty and His Words .... He knows very well the intention of the authors and the propagators of this site, and we leave it upto Him to judge between the Muslims and the Christians on the Day of Judgement, for He indeed, is the Best of all Judges.

I just have a few responses to your claims. I am writing this to you in good faith to enable you to see the other side of the coin for a moment, and if your claim that you want a healthy dialogue is true, then you will ponder seriously over these issues and search for the truth yourselves. May God Almighty guide you and us all to the Truth.

Claim #1.

You claim that the authors took up the 1400 year old challenge to produce a Surah like the Quran.

Yes, the challenge still stands unbroken!!! And you and all mankind are welcome to try and produce a Surah like unto it. But please do bear in mind, what the rest of the verse of the Quran says: ... and you may call to your help all mankind and jinns, and all your self-made deities, except the One and Only True God.

What the authors of these fabricated Surahs have done is shamelessly plagiarized from the Quranic verses and added a few words here and a few words there. They have used the same format as the Quran itself, and now claim that they are making a Surah like unto the words of the Quran!!!. If the authors are indeed willing to take up this challenge from God Almighty Himself, ask them to produce a Surah like the Quran, with its prophecies, with its eloquence, with its linguistic beauty, with its magnificence, with its breathtaking literature .... without taking help from the Quran itself. If they change a few words here and there in the Surah, and then claim that they are taking up the challenge of making a literary masterpiece like the Quran, they are not only cheating and plagiarizing, but fooling themselves. You are challenged by God Almighty to create a Surah without taking help or reference from the Quran. By doing what the authors have done, they have themselves borne witness that these words are indeed the words of none other than God Almighty, and borne witness that they cannot even create one Surah like unto the Quran without taking help from the Quran!!!! Praise be to the Creator, the prophecy of the Quran is absolutely true .... they will never be able to make a Surah like unto it, without the help of God Almighty's words, the Al Quran.

Claim # 2.

Your claim is that the authors of these verses posted are not claiming that these words are from the Quran.

Indeed, that is true. Nowhere on your site, the authors have claimed that these paragraphs posted are words of the Quran, and the muslims have over-reacted to these sites. The muslims, you claim, just assumed that these were verses of the Quran. Now lets turn the tide for a moment; and try to imagine what the Christians would do if we muslims were to fabricate verses from the Holy Bible and substitute the words written by John, Luke, Mathew or Mark from your holy Bible!!! But of course, we do not need to do it, as we have the words of God Almighty Himself in the Quran which confirms what is true from the Old and the New Testament, and what is false and fabricated by man himself. We never felt the urge to fabricate something man has written as we are more than satisfied in what we have as a Mercy from God Almighty Himself, the Al Quran. Thus what the authors of the paragraphs posted have done nothing, but to confirm that they are not satisfied with the words of man in their Bible, and need to copy and plagiarize the words of the Holy Quran. God Almighty says in the Quran, You cannot defeat God Almighty and His approved religion of Islam, however much you try. Praise be to God, the Creator and Sustainer of the Heavens and the Earth.

Claim # 3.

You claim that the site was not supposed to be "malicious", but rather it arose from as a result of a healthy dialogue between the two major faiths.

How can it not be malicious, when you copy and plagiarize words from our Holy Quran and put in your own "malicious" words claiming Muhammad agrees with the charge on the Day of Judgement that he fabricated the whole thing!!!! ( I seek refuge in God from saying this!!!). Where is the healthy dialogue that you claim it is supposed to be!!! Are your healthy dialogues supposedly based on lies and falsehood attributed to the Prophets of God Almighty!!! Is that what you call healthy dialogues between the two major faiths of this world!!! Be assured, that nothing is out of the grasp of God Almighty, and He will definitely take account of the mischief of the evil-mongers and liars of the Truth. The authors might get away with it in this world, but I urge you to fear God and the Last Day .... It will not be a pleasant sight for the liars and fabricators of the Truth on the Day of Judgement.

I can understand where the pain of the Christians is coming from and I do sympathize with you ... Islam is now officially the worlds largest religion and growing, whereas Christianity, although after having a 600 year head start, are a distant second and declining!!! Many people are born and die into Christian families, but never attend their Church and services on a regular basis .... Muslims on the other hand are flocking to the Mosques and worshipping the One and Only True God. Inspite of the Central support, and millions of missionaries, the Christians are unable to convince people to convert to Christianity ........ and the number of Muslim converts (majority of them from Christianity!) just keep on growing and growing, day by day. Praise be to God, the Lord of the Universe!!!!

 

God Almighty says in the Quran in Chapter 17 Bani Israel verse 81: The Truth has come, and falsehood will vanish. And falsehood is a thing, that by its nature, must vanish!

I invite all my Christian brethren who read this, to read the Holy Quran once, and then judge for yourselves, without any pre-conditions and prejudices, whether these are the words of God Himself or not. If yes, you are welcome to be our brothers in faith in the wonderful religion of Islam. If not, follow your way, and prepare to account for yourselves on a Day when nothing but the truth will prevail!!
