The night when angels and the Spirit come down ... Really? July 2014

In Islam, ‘Laylat Al Qadr’ – the night of power, is traditionally celebrated during the last nights of the month of Ramadan, particularly on the odd nights (ie. the 23rd, 25th and 27th). Muslims worldwide spend the last ten nights of Ramadan in solid devotion, retreating to the mosque to read the Qur'an (i'tikaf) and reciting special supplications (du'a). Many Muslims pray continuously during the night to God for mercy, forgiveness, and salvation.

Ramadan- June 28-July 27, 2014 Ramadan: A response to a Muslim's question about fasting July 2014

Every year, Muslims around the world fast in the month of Ramadan. On such occasions, they often ask their Christian neighbors about their way of fasting. According to Islamic teaching, all people of God fasted, including Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus. In seeing no special fasting celebration among Christians, some Muslim friends ask, "Why do Christians not fast as Jesus and Moses did?" (Matthew 4:2; Exodus 34:28) Here are some thoughts in response.

Fathers Day Happy Fathers Day June 2014

Islam has 99 names for Allah but not one of them is "Father." I still remember the day, at age 13, when I received the gospel account of John in the Urdu language. I liked reading and finished it in one day. I found that not only is Jesus different than what I was taught in Islam, but also God in his attributes is different. I knew God as our Rab, Lord, but not as Abba, Father. I didn’t come to accept what I learned in the Bible till later.

What's Going on Behind Church Doors? January 2014

In the name of tolerance, peace, interfaith and multiculturalism, many Churches have opened their doors to a wave known as "coexistence" and “Chrislam”. In recent years, some Muslim scholars and activists have joined in to use all such efforts to their advantage by keeping their enemies close. Islam, like a Trojan horse, has entered some key congregations in the United States of America and is destroying from the inside, the Biblical foundation of many churches.

A Common Word: Love of God and Love of Neighbor August 2013

Does the Bible instruct Christians to find common ground with other faiths so to live in peace? In the name of tolerance, peace, interfaith and multi-culturalism many Christians have opened their hearts to a wave known as ‘coexist’. In recent years some Muslim scholars and activists too have joined in to use all such efforts to their advantage. More ‘Christian leaders’ are joining in to support world peace initiatives. Others have even gone to the extent of agreeing not to encourage Muslims to become Christians.

persecution Persecution and Suffering January 2013

Why do people suffer? The Bible gives many reasons. It may be because of our own faults and sin. "A man reaps what he sows" (Galatians 6:7). People suffer because of the effect of the wrongdoings of others. At times God allows innocent people to suffer, like Job (Qur'an 38:41). The full story is related in the book of Job in the Bible. Often, God allows suffering so that people may learn a lesson (Qur'an: 7:94; Bible: John 9:2-3; Hebrews 12:5-13). Although God is not obliged to state reasons for his sovereign will, He may allow us to learn the cause of some sufferings.

Marriage in Islam and Christianity May 2012

A Christian and Bible believing couple equally yoked together spiritually in Christ does not worry about the deep theological differences. They start off in unity. The man does not have to worry about her being an infidel, or unbeliever.  He does not have to exert patriarchal control, just to keep a semblance of unity. The family is more harmonious.

More than a Mosque More than a Mosque April 2012

In Islam a mosque (masjid) serves as a place where Muslims come together for prayer; an Imam leads the prayer five times a day and delivers a sermon on Friday afternoon prayer. This gives most Americans an assumption that the mosque is simply a place where Muslims go to worship, but this is a wrong assumption. To understand the role of the mosque in a Muslim’s life, one has to check on Islam as faith, its history and how Muhammad lived his life and used the mosque for his purpose.

What is Chrislam? What is Chrislam? August 2011

There is a subtle, dangerous and perilous movement roaming about, raising voices for a false unity between Islam and Christianity. It is called Chrislam, claiming to share the same God, the prophets and the Truth. The idea behind it is to relativize all differences for the common good to create a utopian society.

Interestingly, here are some Muslims also propagating it and yet after a glance, one finds that they are only involved so to take advantage of preaching and propagating their faith.

Building Bridges – but what kind of bridges? Building Bridges – but what kind of bridges? January 2011

When it comes to sharing the Gospel with Muslims, we find that Muslims comprise at least 39% of all un-evangelized people of the world. Only 1% of mission force is directed to reach them. Most of the work by some nowadays is directed towards Muslims to make them feel at home in their own religion in the name of ‘tolerance’ and ‘love’. Indeed many of such churches, their mission committees quote the scriptures as ‘Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love’ (1 John 4:8).

Resurgent Islam has adopted Muhammad's season of diplomacy Resurgent Islam has adopted Muhammad's season of diplomacy January 2011

In the USA, instead of a military attitude the resurgent Islam has adopted Muhammad’s season of diplomacy from his Meccan period. Although traces can be found of militant Islam and of terror, Muslims are using, in the forefront, all legal means to spread their ideology. Financial aid in the millions is given to Islamic organizations and secular Universities and colleges by Saudi Arabia and Gulf states to enlighten people in the USA to see Islam as the best way of the Abrahamic path. Muslim organizations are using every available source from IT to PR.

Be warned of the ‘Interfaith’ delusion that is about in the USA Be warned of the ‘Interfaith’ delusion that is about in the USA January 2011

We are living in a time where in the name of tolerance we try to find something good anywhere and everywhere and whatever the situation may be. Mindful people claiming to be from various faiths in the USA, have established themselves into what is known as Interfaith dialogue. On the surface, when you look at it, you find that in the forefront Judaism, Christianity and Islam as ‘Abrahamic faiths’ and not as Judeo-Christian faith is presented. They claim that ‘The Torah, the New Testament, and the Quran all contain exceptional teachings instructing us to love God, to love one another, and to care for all people.’

Pastor Terry Jones and the burning of the Qur’an Pastor Terry Jones and the burning of the Qur’an January 2011

Well, we heard it all - Pastor Terry Jones and the burning of the Qur’an. We thank the Lord that he did not follow the conviction and withdrew from it. However, I believe he could have used the opportunity while announcing his withdrawal to remind the media of the atrocities against Christians that are committed day and night in Muslim majority countries. Churches are burned down and even members killed and their Scriptures are destroyed. The Pastor could have easily reminded the media asking ‘where are you when such things happen? Why don’t you report them? I am calling on you to look into your conscience and ask yourselves which side you are on.’

Why I followed Jesus and not Islam? Why I followed Jesus and not Islam? May 2010

Like the Jews of Paul’s day Muslims too are very zealous for God. But their zealousness is in the wrong place. Like Paul’s heart cried for his fellow Jews, my heart cries for Muslims to know Christ. I love them all. It is not the Muslims but the ideology of Islam that is the problem. The ideology and faith that is very much ‘works’ related and still a Muslim is not sure whether God will accept him in His paradise as only martyrs in the way of Allah have Qur’anic assurance.Although the Qur’an talks about reward for good deeds, it also states that God has created some to lead them into the straight path of God and yet others to lead them astray.
