This indicates you are not a man seeking after the truth.

9 - The belief in the angels:

As God's servants; they are spiritual beings: who were men inhabiting the ancient planets that broke up in the previous Doomsdays;

and because they were righteous - during thier life in the previous Worlds - and because they were monotheists devoting themselves to God alone, therefore God admitted them into His paradises or the kingdom of heavens,

then he clothed them with ethereal skins --> and so they became the angels.

They are obedient to God Most Gracious: according to what He orders them to do, they fear Him, and they always mention Him with celebration and glorification and gratitude.

Angels

Why is that? Was Jesus being modest? Were his followers simply supposed to "know" he was God? Why not just come out and say it, and dispel all doubt? There must be a reason.

Here, I tell you this:

When an enthusiastic idea was invented in the past about some of the imams of the family of the prophet:

People at that time objected to those enthusiastic, and said: We did not hear the imams themselves say they were infallible!

The enthusiastic answered: They said this only to us!

People said: Why didn't the imams tell us that they were inflallible?

The enthusiastic said: That is because they were afraid and cautious of the governors and rulers !!

I mean: neither did the imams nor did Jesus claim any glorification and any super-natural criteria of themselves, but the devils among people claimed that for personal advntages.

On the contrary: Jesus objected to someone who called him: good man; and Jesus said to him: why do you call me good: God is the only good One.

10 - The Islam is a renewal of the religion of Prophet Abraham:

When Prophet Mohammed - salam be to him - was asked: would he follow the way of Jews or the way of Christians, God ordered him to say: he is following the original way of Abraham: the devotion to God alone.

That is because Abraham was their father: who were before the Jews and Christians, and he followed the exclusive devotion to God alone without associate or equal.

(They say: 'Be Jews or Christians, and you will be rightly guided.'

Say [to them, O Mohammed]: "Not so, but [we follow] the religion of Abraham, the Hanief [i.e. the monotheist]; he was not [one] of those who associate [others with God.]")


The above between brackets is the explanation of the Quran 2: 135
وَقَالُواْ كُونُواْ هُودًا أَوْ نَصَارَى تَهْتَدُواْ قُلْ بَلْ مِلَّةَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ حَنِيفًا وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ

Studying the Bible and the Quran is an essential part of the education

Studying the Bible will certainly give much orientation and information to the Quran reader; giving more understanding and insight.

On the other hand (as has one of my relatives said):

Studying the Quran will solve the puzzles and mystery of the Bible.
The Bible (including both the Old Testament and the New Testament) has serious mystery and ambiguity concerning much many subjects.

And the Quran has come to solve and explain all this mystery and the misunderstood subjects.


(People of the Bible [:Jews and Christians],
now has Our messenger[Mohammed] come expounding to you many things in the Bible that you have been hiding, and many things else he disregards.
There has come to you light from God and a clear ‘Book’ [: the Quran]:

Whereby God guides him who seeks His good pleasure to the paths of safety,
and brings them out of darkness to light with His leave,
and guides them to a standard path [of the exclusive devotion to God alone without associate.] )

The above between brackets is the explanation of the Quran 5: 15-16
يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ قَدْ جَاءكُمْ رَسُولُنَا يُبَيِّنُ لَكُمْ كَثِيرًا مِّمَّا كُنتُمْ تُخْفُونَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَيَعْفُو عَن كَثِيرٍ قَدْ جَاءكُم مِّنَ اللّهِ نُورٌ وَكِتَابٌ مُّبِينٌ . يَهْدِي بِهِ اللّهُ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ رِضْوَانَهُ سُبُلَ السَّلاَمِ وَيُخْرِجُهُم مِّنِ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيَهْدِيهِمْ إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

In the same way after the injil was replaced by Christianity, no man had the Truth until it was given one last time to Muhammad(PBUH) Same message that was always given and this time we know it is the last time mankind will ever receive it. We had best not mess up again.
What was this same message that every prophet taught to people?
It was to invite them to God alone and no associate with Him.

In other words: it was the exclusive devotion to God alone with no patron other than God alone to be the True Patron.

So, Mohammed told people (as it is so obvious in the Quran) that :
No god but God alone without associate.

It means: No god to be worshipped in the entire universe, but only God Almighty and Most Gracious alone and none else.

This is the same [The First Commandment] in the Bible.

The Devotion Should Exclusively Be to God

Add an additional faith to your faith

A man who converted and became a Muslim, said: I didn't lose anthing; on the contrary, I added a new faith in the Quran and Mohammed, to my original faith in the Gospel and Prophet Jesus.

That is because the Muslim believes in the Gospel and in Jesus as an honored prophet and apostle.

Therefore:
>> Believe in God alone: this is [The First Commandment].
>> Believe in Prophet Mohammed, in addition to your belief in Jesus and Moses: and have all the blessing.
>> Believe in the Quran, in addition to your belief in the Bible: and have all the wisdom.

I'd be willing to guess that you have not really examined all your beliefs to see if they're true.

You would lose, but I suppose you are used to losing, right? Aren't you one who believes in many of the impossibilities written in the bible?

I suppose you have examined all those things, but decided to believe them anyway, even though you know they cannot be true, right?
