What Islam thinks about Christianity


DISCLAIMER: What a religion’s texts teach does not speak for all those who claim to be members of this religion; this is the perfect example in which not all self-professing Muslims display animosity towards non-Christians.  Also, most of these passages do not refer specifically to Christians, but since this is directed to a specifically Christian audience, that is the reason for referring specifically to Christianity.

Islam calls the Crucifixion “a grave false charge” (cf. Quran 4:156).

Islam announces Allah’s curse “on them” [the Christians] for believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (cf. Quran 9:30).

Islam says Christians “blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity” (cf. Quran 5:73).

Islam says that Christians “forgot a good part of the message that was sent them” (cf. Quran 5:14).

Islam prescribes that the caliph or successor of Muhammad may wage war against Christians “provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax” (cf. Reliance of the Traveller, @O9.8).

Islam teaches that Christians must be fought “until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (cf. Quran 9:30).

Islam teaches the disbelieving Christians’ “abode is Hell,- an evil refuge indeed” (cf. Quran 9:73).

Islam professes disbelieving Christians to be “apes, despised and rejected” (cf. Quran 7:166).

Islam professes Muslims “are strong against” Christians, “(but) compassionate amongst each other” (cf. Quran 48:29).

Islam proclaims those Christians “are the worst creatures in the Sight of Allah” who “whenever a pious man dies amongst them, make a place of worship at his grave and then they make those pictures in it” (cf. Sahih al-Bukhari 2:23:425).

Islam teaches that Christians “are forbidden to build new churches” (cf. Reliance of the Traveler, @O11.5.7).

Islam mandates that Christians “are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar)” (cf. Reliance of the Traveler, @O11.5.2).

Islam mandates that a Christian “may not enter the Meccan Sacred Precinct (Haram) under any circumstances, or enter any other mosque without permission” (cf. Reliance of the Traveler, @O11.7).

Islam forbids “an endowment for printing the” New Testament since Christians allegedly “have altered the texts and interpolated spurious material” and as such it is not “permissible to occupy oneself with printing their scriptures because doing so is to participate in their disobedience to Allah” (cf. Reliance of the Traveler, @K30.6.6).

Islam teaches, “It is offensive to pray: . . . in a church” (Reliance of the Traveler, @F4.14.5).

Islam teaches Christians “are forbidden . . . to ring church bells or display crosses” (cf. Reliance of the Traveler, @O11.5.7).

Islam teaches, “The blood of a Muslim . . . cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims” (Sahih al-Bukhari 9:83:17).

Islam professes that Muslims must expel all Christians “from the Arabian Peninsula” so as to “not leave any but Muslim” (cf. Sahih Muslim 19:4366).

Islam teaches that if there is any doubt regarding a church, “it is better to err on the side of caution, treat it as new, and demolition it” (Ibn Qayyim, “Rules for the Dhimmis).

Islam mandates that Christians “are forbidden to . . . recite” the Scriptures publicly (cf. Reliance of the Traveler, @O11.5.6).

Islam teaches Christians “believe in sorcery and Evil” (cf. Quran 4:51).

Islam teaches Muslims must not take Christians as “friends and protectors” (cf. Quran 5:51).

Islam teaches Christians “have no ground to stand upon unless” they observe Islam’s interpretation of Scriptures (cf. Quran 5:68).

This is written in honor of all Christians who have suffered under Islamic oppression.
