“Say, ‘O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you – that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah…’” (Al-Imran 3:64)

Ehlikitap (Ahl Al-Kitab)

The Qur’an calls a group of people “the People of the Book” Ahl Al-Kitab. Who are these people? What do they believe? The members of the divine religions like Judaism and Christianity are called “Ahl al-Kitab” (the People of the Book). The people of the Book are mentioned a lot in the Quran, for example: “There is a community among the People of the Book who are upright. They recite Allah’s Signs throughout the night, and they prostrate.

Kur’an’da Kutsal Kitap Tanıklığı

Today we hear many voices say that the Bible has undergone many changes with regard to its early manuscripts and their translated versions, but in reality the Qur’an does not support such accusations, “And if thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the book from before thee…” (Yunus 10: 94), how come the Qur’an is asking the Muslims to “ask those who have been reading the book from before thee” IF the Book “the Holy […]

“Tanrı’nın Oğlu” Ne Demektir?

Almost every Muslim will deny that Jesus is the Son of God. For Muslims, “Son of God” means literally that God had sexual relations with a woman and fathered a baby. Is that what the Injil teaches? What the Injil means by “Son of God” is very different from what a Muslim means by “Son of God.” Let us study this subject carefully: The Qur’an and the Injil affirm that Isa had no human biological father.

Without a Savior, we must depend on our own good deeds, which may be rewarded by a dispensation of Allah’s mercy.
