To My Muslim Friend, with Love
  
Warm greetings to you, my friend, as you consider the cover of this pamphlet. Much has been said about Jihad, but it is most important that we have an unambiguous understanding of it because of its alleged role in salvation. Your sincere desire to enter Paradise requires that you strictly adhere to the teachings and example of the Prophet Mohammad as written in the Holy Qur'an and Hadiths, respectively. Unfortunately, these texts are written in Arabic which less than 15 per cent of world Muslims understand. As in any other religion or organization where people cannot or do not read or understand their guidebook, most devout Muslims depend upon and trust their leaders (Imams and Mufti) to teach them the fundamentals of Islam from the Qur'an and Hadiths. On September 11, 2001 several educated Muslim men obeyed such leaders and killed themselves and thousands of innocent people in a most ghastly manner. The entire intellectual world has questioned the jihadists' sanity: why did they kill themselves instead of enjoying the American life they had dreamed of? The Qur'an answers: suicide  during jihad is the one sure way to Paradise (Heaven). But the Prophet, Mohammad, declared on more than seven occasions that one who commits suicide will remain in the Hell-fire forever. Have they been deceived by this double-talk? Could you? If they could, perhaps they would wish to warn other unsuspecting Muslims!

A Deathly Dilemma
  
Since 9/11/01, many conflicting accounts of Islam have surfaced in the media. Many Muslims are confused about the call to arms against America and other "infidels" because all they seek is a spiritual path into Paradise. Our western Muslim friends are particularly troubled because their Imams' teachings about the west completely contradict their experiences here. In fact, life in the west provides a fine preview of the  Islamic version of Paradise. Crime here, including pornography, is no more brutal than in Islamic countries. A Biblical Christian heritage leads the world in providing you education, compassion, freedom of speech and worship, human rights for all, civility, and a rational criminal justice system. Even while they enjoy its goodness, the Imams call America the "Big Satan" which you are  instructed to attack and conquer for Allah, lest you be executed for being worse than an infidel. You are told that fighting in jihad earns you forgiveness of sins (Sura 61:12), but then you hear that you will spend eternity in Hell if you commit suicide during Jihad. Yet the "human bomb" is the weapon of choice for Islamic Jihad! Relatives of the 9/11 jihadists  said they felt betrayed by Islam, but  leaving Islam would mean certain execution.

Needed: Truth that Liberates
  
All men everywhere affirm the virtues of the Biblical statement of Jesus the Messiah: "The truth shall make you free" (John 8:32 Injil). In a recent television interview, many loved ones of the 9/11 suicide pilots tearfully wished that they had known the truth about their Imams' "call to the service of Allah" in jihad . They begged other Muslims to avoid the bondage of Jihad. Our Muslim friends would have escaped this tragedy if they had searched for the truth themselves rather than rely on their clerics: jihad presented in the Qur'an and in the Hadiths unmasks the deadly contradiction, and reading the Injil would have provided the true pathway to a truly divine heaven. What do these texts teach about suicide, jihad, and salvation?

Qur'an or Hadiths? Or both?
  
All ranking Muslim scholars in Egypt and Saudi Arabia agree that the Hadiths are equal in value to the  Qur'an, some even asserting that the Hadiths (traditional sayings ascribed to Mohammad) give clearer practical guidance . As a sincere Muslim, you must recognize that the Hadiths are conveniently rejected by those who know of the deception but use it to maintain control over others. This terrible disservice results not only in tragic suicide but also in eternal Hell fire! True scholars are never afraid of opposing ideas, just as truth never feels threatened by lies.

A Tragedy of Terrors
  
Robbed of love:
Every human being feels the need for love. The Biblical quotation "God is love" is well known, and the most masterful description of love is given in the Injil , 1 Corinthians 13. Allah does not love unconditionally, and the Qur'an further emphasizes that he loves those who die in jihad (Sura 4:74; 3:195; 61:4). Sadly, the desperate act of seeking Allah's "love" robs the jihadists and their victims from experiencing and living in true love. How about you: do you feel truly loved, or manipulated? The God of the Bible loves you!

Devout deceived: Mohammad and Allah are quoted in Sahih al Bukhari as saying that one who commits suicide will spend eternity in hell, regardless of the method of suicide. Bukhari 2:23:445: so Allah said, "My slave has caused death on himself hurriedly, so I forbid Paradise for him." Bukhari 2:23:446: The Prophet said, "He who commits suicide by throttling shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell Fire forever, and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell Fire." Bukhari 8:78:647: The Prophet said, " whoever commits suicide with something will be punished with the same thing in the Hell Fire " Those poor souls of 9/11 are "throttling" in Hell Fire! Yet they were assured of a Paradise of wine and women (insulting our intelligence). How about you: do you find comfort in such promise?

Use it and lose it: From the inception of Islam it has been a crime punishable by execution to question what Mohammad did or said, without regard for the truth. Many thousands of Arabs were slaughtered in Medina (Yathrib) and in Mecca by Mohammad and his men because they questioned Mohammad's proclamations. While he paid lip service to the Biblical counsel of seeking and utilizing knowledge, Mohammad detested  those who questioned his ideas, and he conveniently received a Sura from Allah to the effect that the human head is dangerous: if you use it, you may lose it! Suras 2:216, 9:41 and 33:36 express Allah's hot displeasure with those who question Islam: hypocrites are worse than an infidel (fit only to be executed)! But Allah misleads people (Suras 4:80, 143; 7:186; 40:33-34). How about you: will you seek truth in order to escape Hell Fire, or follow a lie into Hell? God's Truth welcomes scrutiny: seek it with all your heart.

 These tragic facts raise critical questions for my devout  Muslim friends who seek salvation. The forgiveness of sins according to Sura 61:12 raises questions of justice. The Islamic texts raise serious questions about Allah's identification with the God of the Bible: love, wisdom, mercy, patience, and justice are redefined and limited to the Muslim brotherhood only. Even jihad is being interpreted away in the most outrageous attempts to evade the clear meaning in the Qur'an: war against non-Muslims to conquer the world for Allah. What is the truth that will break your link to Hell?

Injil, Taurat, Psalms give hope
  
Sura 3:3 declares that the Bible was given as  guidance for mankind. Suras 5:48, 6:34,115 and 10:64 state that the Bible could not be corrupted because it was divinely protected. They who teach my Muslim friends that the Bible was corrupted question Allah's omnipotence and omniscience. Clearly, you have reason to abide by Sura 10:94 and 5:46,68: the Bible has withstood every type of scrutiny; a large number of Bibles which circulated in Mohammad's time still exist and show no change in meaning. Almighty God truly preserves His Word with the following message for ALL mankind regardless of what language they speak!

God's Message For Mankind
  
We, as sinners, cannot enter God's perfect Heaven. Being touched by and soiled with sin, the works of our hands and our very thoughts are "as filthy rags " before God (Isaiah 64:6). Romans 3:23 confirms this: "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Sin condemns us to eternal Hell fire: "the wages of sin is death (Hell)". This verse continues: " but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Holy God says that even if we work hard at earning our way to Heaven, the only wage we can earn with such "rags" is Hell; BUT, His love for us led Him to provide a perfect substitute who took our judgment (death) upon himself. No other person but Jesus the Messiah was sinless because He was the human manifestation of God who is spirit. The Qur'an calls Jesus Ruhillah (Spirit of God) and Kalimatullah (Word of God): the Bible also calls Him "Son of God" to express God's authority and identity in a male human form and not as a reproductive outcome. John 3:16 summarizes the good news for you: "For God so loved the world (YOU included) that He gave His one and only (manifestation as a) Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish (in Hell fire) but have everlasting life (Heaven)".

 My friend, regardless of the fancy explanations given for the deceptions they teach, your leaders will  "all likewise perish" (as Sodom was destroyed with fire and brimstone) unless they come to Jesus the Messiah. Regardless of all the mosques built in the world, and all the westerners who become Muslims, or all the Christians who are killed and brutalized in Muslim countries, or any such attempt to discredit Jesus the Messiah, Muslims all over the world (especially in Muslim countries) are being brought to faith in Him by the Spirit of God (Ruhillah)! This unique Jesus, virgin born, sinless, mighty over demons and the storms and diseases and death itself, is returning for His people soon. This is the only person who can and will give you assurance of salvation (Sura 2:4) There is no other way to salvation. Even through dreams He speaks to you.

 What if you are wrong about Jesus the Messiah? He loves you, and He says, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man can come to the Father but through me" (John 14:6). He is the Noor ul Haqq who alone can lead you to your heavenly Father so you can call Him "Abba, Father" (Romans 8:15). Read the Injil and ask God to lead you to Himself. He will open your understanding. Please ask Him:  "Lord Jesus, please wash my sins away with your sacrificial blood and make me your child. Thank you for a home in heaven too, and help me to live for you. Amen!"
