NOTE:  Islam has so-called "sacred" writings other than the Quran, which are viewed by Muslims as just as inspired. The "Hadith" is a collection of early Muslim traditions which record the words and deeds of Muhammad as relating to his wives, his family members, friends and Muslim leaders not usually found in the Quran.

Dr. Muhammad Hamidullah, a Muslim scholar, in his book Introduction to Islam, states, "The teachings of Islam are based primarily on the Quran and Hadith, and, as we shall presently see, both are based on divine inspiration." [page 23] Also stated is that it is incumbent upon every Muslim to believe and to obey it [the Hadith]. "It is incumbent upon you to strive hard to do righteous deeds according to the traditions of Muhammad as is clearly expressed in his Hadith." [p.xvii]

So . . . what are some of the teachings and traditions of the "so called" sacred books of Islam? Just a few of them are listed below:

Muhammad did NOT know what "allah" would do with him on judgment day.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume V, no. 266. The Prophet said, "By Allah, even though I am the Apostle of Allah, yet I do not know what Allah will do to me."

Satan urinates into the ears of those who fall asleep while praying.

The Hadith / Burhari volume II, no. 245. If one sleeps and does not offer the prayer, Satan urinates in his ears. Narrated Abdullah: The Prophet said, "Satan urinated in his ears."

The miracle wings of a fly. Don't worry about drinking water with a fly in it, because while one wing has disease in it, the other wing has an antidote to that disease.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume IV, no. 537. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "If a housefly falls into the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it [into the drink] because one of its wings has a disease and the other wing has the cure [for that disease]."

Mohammad instructed his followers to drink camel urine.

The Hadith / Burkari volume I, no. 234. The Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of camels and to drink their milk and urine.

Muhammad's answer to this question: "Why does a child resemble its father and why does it resemble its maternal uncle?"

Bukhari volume IV, no. 546. Allah's Apostle said, "As for the resemblance of the child to its parents: If a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and gets his discharge first, the child will resemble the father, and if the woman gets her discharge first, the child will resemble her."

The Quran says several young men and a dog entered a cave. The men and dog fell asleep for 300 to 309 years. When they awoke, they left the cave as young as they were before.

The Quran / Surah XVIII:9-25. Do you understand that the Companions of the Cave and of the Inscription were wonders among our signs. Behold, the youths entered the Cave and said, "Our Lord, bestow upon us your mercy and deal with us in the right way." We drew a veil over their ears for a number of years in the Cave. Then we awakened them in order to test which of the two parties was best at calculating th number of years they had stayed in the Cave. We relate to you their story in truth . . . so they stayed in their Cave three hundred years and some add nine more years to that."

Muhammad taught that Satan lives in the upper part of the nose at night; therefore, one must clean his nose three times before prayer to clean the devil out.

The Hadith / Burkari volume IV, no. 516. "Satan stays in the upper part of the nose all night."

Footnote (1) We should believe that Satan actually stays in the upper part of one's nose, though we cannot perceive how, for this is related to the unseen world of which we know nothing except what Allah tells us through his Apostle Mohammed.

Muslim volume I, no. 462. Abu Huraira reported: The Apostle of Allah said, "When any one of you awakes from sleep and performs ablution, he must clean his nose three times, for the devil spends the night in the interior of his nose."

Non-Muslims have seven intestines.

Muslim volume III, nos. 5113 Chapter DCCCXII. A believer eats in one intestine whereas a non-believer eats in seven intestines.

Ibn Umar reported Allah's Messenger as saying that a non-Muslim eats in seven intestines while a Muslim eats in one intestine. (See also nos. 5114-5120).

If you pray with your eyes lifted up toward heaven, they will be snatched out of your head.

The Hadith / Muslim volume I, nos. 863 Chapter CLXXIII. It is forbidden to lift one's eyes toward the sky in prayer. Abu Haraira reported Allah's Apostle saying: "People should avoid lifting their eyes towards the sky while supplicating in prayer, otherwise their eyes would be snatched away."

If you eat garlic or onions before your pray, allah will not hear you if you have bad breath.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume I, no. 812. What has been said about uncooked garlic or onion. And th statement of the Prophet: "Whoever has eaten garlic or onion because of hunger or otherwise should not come near our mosque." (See also nos. 813-815.)

According to the Prophet, all yawning is from Satan.

The Hadith / volume IV, no. 509. Narrated Abu Haraira: The Prophet said, "Yawning is from Satan."

According to Mohammed, Hell is populated mainly by women.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume I, no. 28. The Prophet said, "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful."

The Hadith / Burkhari volume I, no. 301. Allah's Apostle ... said, "O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you women ... I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you."

Mohammed did NOT know what allah would do with him on Judgment Day!

The Hadith / Burkhari volume V, no. 266. The Prophet said, "By Allah, even though I am the Apostle of Allah, yet I do not know what Allah will do to me."

Mohammed was a white man.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume I, no. 63. While we were sitting with the Prophet in the mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said, "Who among you is Mohammed?" At that time the Prophet was sitting among us leaning on his arm. We replied, "The white man reclining on his arm."

The Hadith / Burhari volume II, no. 122. Mohammed is described as "a white person."

The Hadith / Burkhari volume IV, no. 744. Narrated Ismasil bin Abi Khalid: I heard Abu Juhaifa saying, "I saw the Prophet and Al-Hasan bin Ali resembled him." I said to Abu Juhaifa, "Describe him [i.e. Allah's Apostle] for me." He said, "He was white and his beard was black with some white hair in it. He promised to give us 13 young she-camels, but he died before we got them."

Muhammad's "child bride" of nine years old. Engaged to him at the age of six.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume V, nos. 234. Narrated Aisha: The Prophet was engaged to me when I was a girl six years old ... I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends ... Unexpectedly Allah's Apostles came to me in the afternoon and my mother handed me over to him. At that time I was a girl of nine years of age.

The Hadith / Burkhari volume V, no. 236. The Prophet ... married Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age and consummated that marriage when she was nine years old.



NOTE: When Muslims pray to "allah" they are praying to a non-entity; they are praying to the name of a god who is NO god.

Jehovah God, the God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is NOT "allah." Don't let anyone deceive you: "allah" is NOT the name of the true God. Muhammad is the dead false prophet of a non-entity called "allah." There is NO being with distinct and independent existence named "allah" except that which is made up. The name "allah" was the false deity worshipped by the cult of the moon god in Arabia. And, this was long before Muhammad was born.

To confuse "allah" with Jehovah is as foolish as comparing "Baal" with "Jehovah." The only reason the name "allah" is used in the Arabic translation of the Holy Bible is that it wasn't translated until the 9th Century A.D. By this time, Islam (the religion started by Muhammad) had used the name "allah" for about 200 years, and to be polite, the translators used that name. The translators actually gave in to political and religious pressure because they feared the that fanatical Muslims might kill or harm them.



In this module on Islamic Studies we have compared briefly the Holy Bible with the Koran, the life of Jesus Christ with the life of Muhammad, and investigated the foolishness of Islam's "so called" sacred writings. The major goal of these studies was to provide you with information to give you confidence when dealing with Muslims, but also to give you a compassion for them by realizing the great deception to which they are in bondage.

We have discussed previously in another module the importance of intercession in reaching Muslim people . . . and whole areas of Islamic society.

We discussed that recently an "unnamed" missionary from one East African country was invited to a rural area to witness a very special event. Another tribe in an area, whose members were formerly animistic, first heard about Christ 25 years ago and became Christians.

Two years ago they were building a large stone church for their village when halfway through he construction, God told them to stop building and go plant churches on their enemy's territory! This enemy tribe was Muslim, and the two groups hated each other to the point where they were killing one another. "But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you." [Luke 6:27]

As these Christians trusted God and went to their Muslim neighbors, they found God had prepared the hearts of their enemies and they were ready to listen. In fact, God confirmed His truth for the Muslims with VISIONS and DREAMS about the very things the Christians were telling them. Now, two years later 1,000 Muslim "enemies" were being baptized into the family of God. The original believers church remains unfinished as a testimony to the tribe's obedience and God's faithfulness.

Another example of intercession for Muslims is as follows. Years ago there was a whole community of Muslims in Eastern Europe where all the accountable people were born again in ONE NIGHT when the Lord Jesus appeared to them in DREAMS and VISIONS. The reason for this was that PRAYER and FASTING had been carried out for over 20 years by a group of people whose relatives had been killed by the people in the Muslim community.

Why not challenge your people to form intercessory prayer groups for the sole purpose of interceding for the Islamic world, and specific areas and people individually? You will see great moves of the Spirit of God!
