  1. If Jesus (peace be upon him) did not die on the cross, then what happened to him?
    • The Holy Quran states, “…and for their saying, ‘We killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the apostle of Allah’—though they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but so it was made to appear to them. Indeed those who differ concerning him are surely in doubt about him: they do not have any knowledge of that beyond following conjectures, and certainly, they did not kill him. [Ch.4, v.157] Indeed, Allah raised him up toward Himself, and Allah is all-mighty, all-wise.”   [Ch.4, v.158]  
    • Our belief is that an unbeliever with the semblance of Prophet Jesus was crucified instead, and that Prophet Jesus had already been raised up to Allah – to return during the end of times.
  2. Where in the Bible is Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prophesied?
    • Genesis chapter 17 verses 6-7 –> “And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”
    • Deuteronomy chapter 18 verse 18 –> “I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”
    • Deuteronomy Chapter 33 verses 1-2 –> “And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; He shined forth from Mount Paran, and He came with ten thousand of saints: from His right hand went a fiery law for them.”
    • Isaiah Chapter 42, Verses 9-12 –> “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. `Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth’, Ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto the Lord, and declare His praise in the inlands.”
    • Habakuk Chapter 3 verse 3 –> “God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.”
    • John chapter 16: verses 7-8 –> “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.”
    • John Chapter 1 Verse 19-21 –> “And this is the record of John’s when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, who art thou? And he confessed and denied not ; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, what then? Art thou Elias?” And He said, I am not. “Art thou that Prophet?”And he answered, No.”
    • John Chapter 14 verses 15 to 16 –> “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever”
    • This verse again refers to Prophet Muhammad. 
    • If we observe these verses, Prophet Jesus always refers to the Comforter as ‘he’ and not ‘it’, therefore we know that the comforter is a person and not a spirit.
    • We have also discussed above that the Holy Spirit existed before Prophet Jesus and during his lifetime, so why would there be a need for Prophet Jesus to leave for the Holy Spirit to come.
  3. Some Muslims claim the bible is corrupted. What evidence is there to support this claim?
    • The corrupt interpretations of the Bible does not mean the Bible itself is corrupt.
    • The Holy Quran states, “Then, because of their breaking their covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard: they pervert words from their meanings, and have forgotten a part of what they were reminded of. You will not cease to learn of some of their treachery, except a few of them. Yet excuse them and forbear. Indeed Allah loves the virtuous. [Ch.13, v.13]
    • The Quran’s verses are clearly referring to the use of the Bible by some evildoers, rather than the text itself. This suggests the change of the proclamation, utterance, telling, or interpreting the text, rather than fabricating the text itself.
  4. How can we trust that the Quran was perfectly preserved since the time of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)?  
    • The Holy Quran is a collection of hymns/songs which are recited in many of our prayers since Prophet Muhammad. Given the nature of the scripture, many Muslims have memorized the entire Holy Quran.
    • Additionally, the Holy Quran states that God has preserved it:
    • Lastly, we do not believe that God would leave his Word to be corrupted by His creations. The Word is Mankind’s hope for attaining perfection in their deeds
  5. How can we reconcile the law of apostasy as being just?
    • The law of apostasy is often over-simplified and requires a deeper understanding of mankind’s purpose for being created and divine justice.
  6. If the Quran propagates that the only miracle from Muhammad is the Quran itself, then how can we trust the hadiths that portray Muhammad performing mircales (e.g. story around the Prophet shooting water from his fingers)?
    • The Holy Quran is the greatest miracle of Prophet Muhammad. It isn’t the only miracle.
  7. How does Islam reconcile Prophet Muhammad marrying Aisha, a 6 year old, and then consummating the marriage with her at 9 years old as being okay?
    • Our view is that Aisha was 17 years of age during the first year of the Hijrah. She officially wed the Prophet during the month of Shawwal of the second year after Hijrah, meaning that she was 19 years old when she was wed to Prophet Muhammad.
