The Fruits of Modern Christianity

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” – Matthew 7:3.

Dear Christians, in the same way you ask Muslims to rebuke sinful Muslims, there are also extremist, sinful, hateful, xenophobic Christians on pulpits, in schools and on street corners throughout the world. Don’t let this hate divide us, rebuke your Christian brothers and sisters today!

Bible – The Greatest Story Book Ever!

While checking out a few book shops today, by happenstance I came across a Bible entitled, Baby’s First Bible. My curiosity got the best of me and while flipping through the pages I came across a pretty interesting page. On the last picture below, the publishers describe the Bible as the greatest story book ever! I cannot disagree, the Bible has stories that rival those of Cinderella, Game of Thrones and even Harry Potter.

It’s good to see that publishers are educating kids by being honest about the veracity and reliability of the Bible.

Dividing Infinity Into Three

During a discussion on Facebook, a Christian happened to mention that God is one, infinite and indivisible. Then he mentioned God was shared by three persons. For a moment I wasn’t sure what I had read. How was it possible that God was one, infinite and indivisible, but at the same time three and divisible (shared)? I think this meme summarizes the confusion I had.

So, any takers? How do I divide infinity into three?

Missionary Mishap – Copying Bad Arguments

Everyone wants to be a debater. Today, all it takes is a keyboard and adding a title to one’s name. In this case we have a callow missionary by the name of Evangelist France Francis. He has previously boasted that he is a friend of Jonathan McLatchie (a quick perusal of Jonathan’s timeline indicates that ‘France’ comments often on his page). With that said, while Jonathan has accepted that he made an error with regard to his claim that nowhere does Allah say: ‘I am God, Worship Me’ in the Qur’an, his young missionary friend has yet to get this memo:

As can be seen, Br. Mustafa Sahin an up and coming Muslim apologist and debater, knocks France the Evangelist out of the park. His Qur’anic reference directly refutes the missionary:

Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance. –20:14.

It truly is amazing just how fast bad arguments can spread. Even when the missionary you allegedly learn from recants his position, missionaries still insist on using those bad arguments. It’s quite embarrassing to say the least.

The Passing of Br. Akbar Ali Sidi

cc-2016-akbarsidi

As Salaamu ‘Alaykum,

Br. Akbar Sidi was a founding member of Calling Christians. I came to know him while giving da’wah to Christians online. For many years we worked together and he supported my da’wah efforts greatly. He introduced me to the brothers and sisters that eventually went on to found Calling Christians. Due to him, I was inspired to converse, dialogue and debate with missionaries. At the moment I am lost for words. However, what I will say is that he is perhaps one of the greatest Muslim men I have ever known, his faith was steadfast and despite his old age he strove in the path of Allah by giving da’wah everyday, and true to character he also did so in the hours before his passing.

May Allah forgive him of any misgivings and grant him Jannat al Firdous, Ameen.

إِنَّا لِلَّـهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ –

“Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.” – Qur’an 2:156.

Biography & Testimony:

I am Akbar Ali Sidi by name. Born in 1951 on the 1st of June. Born in a Muslim family, married with four children. Three of those children are already married. I worked for the Bank of Baroda briefly after completion of my high school but took up my favorite career in auto engineering. I then joined the Kenyan police force and did part time service to my country for 12 years. Presently, I’m in auto repairs in my small workshop.

Br. Akbar Ali Sidi

Educated at Consolata Catholic School where I did Bible studies as one of the compulsory subjects. The school was run by Italian priests. My mentor in Bible studies was the late Father Tosillini who was also the Principal of the school. In those days I was convinced that the only true religion was Christianity. I was so involved in Bible studies that I had opted to enroll in a Christian Bible Seminary College for further studies in the Bible. But due to financial strains I was not able to. All my religious discourses involved the Bible.

I therefore opted to be employed and joined Bank of Baroda where I worked for three years. I then opened my own workshop and it was during this time that the turning point in my religious views began. The person responsible for this was none other than the late Sheikh Ahmed Deedat who at that time was on a brief visit to Kenya. I enrolled in his classes on Comparative Religions that is: Islam and Christianity. My main interest was to hear his views on the Bible. Our first lecture was on the Crucifixion of Jesus. Contrary to what I had believed he convinced me beyond no doubt that it was a false concept in Christianity. This was followed by lectures on Trinity which he again proved to be a false doctrine.

Br. Akbar Ali Sidi

It was at this juncture that I started looking keenly at my birth religion with renewed interest. I started talking with various Christian friends on the Bible and Quran showing the superiority of the Quran on the Bible. From then on I have been involved in debates with the Christians. Alhamdulillah to have been born a Muslim and that is why I debate strongly on the internet (Facebook, with them).

Nabeel Qureishi Deemed Heretic by Christian Scholar

The former Qadiani, Nabeel Qureishi attempted to unceremoniously drag noted Christian scholar and theologian, Miroslav Volf into his response to the Wheaton College suspension of a Professor for promoting solidarity between Islam and Christianity.

cc-2015-nq-slav

Unfortunately for Nabeel, he earned the ire of Miroslav Volf, who deemed him a heretic for arguing that Jews worship a different God than that of Jesus’s. His argument is that according to the Bible, Jesus acknowledged that Jews worshiped ‘His Father’, despite denying his (Jesus’s) alleged divinity. As such, not only does this demonstrate Nabeel’s lack of education when it comes to his own theology, it indicates to the wider public that Nabeel is not serious about his faith and is clearly more interested in pandering to the lay-Christian audience that follows RZIM.

This is quite disappointing, but in some respect it is a sign that not only does Nabeel not understand Islam, despite trying to study Christianity, he still is unable to grasp its theological nuances to the extent according to one well noted Christian scholar, he holds heretical notions and beliefs.

Missionary Mishap: Jonathan McLatchie’s Honesty

People make mistakes, I’ve made mistakes, however if you accept your mistakes and take responsibility for them, you can make amends. There are some people though, where the issue of honesty is not so black and white. In this case, it quite literally is black, there’s no denying it. So, here we are again with another infamous Missionary Mishap! In August of 2015, Jonathan McLatchie unleashed a xenophobic tirade, describing Muslims in Europe as a cancer. At that point in time, he was unable to clear his name, since video evidence was widely available. He never apologized or recanted his xenophobic views. Recently, Jonathan once again unleashed another xenophobic tirade, denigrating Caucasian converts to Islam.

The Muslim community continues to forgive Jonathan for his xenophobic views, and we do not ascribe his extremism to his faith. We do not hold Christianity responsible for Jonathan’s views. However, Jonathan seems to have found himself in another controversy. In his video denigrating Caucasian converts to Islam, he erroneously claimed that Khalid Yasin, the African American convert to Islam, was a white (caucasian) man. After repeated attempts at correcting him, Jonathan insists that Khalid Yasin is a white man. He even went so far as to claim he met Khalid Yasin to prove that he was a white man. This incident is indicative of Jonathan’s inability to correct himself when wrong. Jonathan refuses to acknowledge that he made a mistake.

I’ve got news for Jonathan. Khalid Yasin is an African American man. He is not white, as is noted by the photo above. To assess Jonathan’s ability to correct himself, he was contacted via Twitter and he continued to affirm that he had not made a mistake, Khalid Yasin was a white man, and the proof was that Jonathan met him.

cc-2015-jm-khalidyasintwitter

In response to that, I too also met Khalid Yasin several years ago when he visited Trinidad at the IBN TV8 studios. I can assure Jonathan that Mr. Yasin, is indeed, not a white man. As proof, I also offer any image or video of the man himself. No one in the Muslim community can make sense of Jonathan’s inability to correct himself in the face of obvious and glaring mistakes. Even when the issue is as simple as the difference between black and white, Jonathan is unable to be honest or correct himself. If he cannot be honest for such simple matters, should he be trusted when it comes to theology? The answer is clearly no.

Should Jonathan correct himself, I will edit this post to reflect this. However, that is as likely as it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.
