    The Gospel and the Torah, the Quran, Christian, Bahai, and other apologetics.

    In a nutshell, the Quran mentions the Gospel (Injeel), the Torah (Thaurath), and of course other scripture as well. But like a famous advertisement most of us would have these two top of mind, which probably is the reason these two are cited more often. Christian evangelists and Apologists...

    Quran Criticism - God's word or manmade?

    Hi, Ultimately us who don't believe in the Quran don't need to provide a reason for why of course, but for as long as we are free to do so some of us will openly object to submission to the Quran due to various reasons. If that describes you, by special request from one of our RF members who...

    Quran and marriage between Muslim women and non-Muslim men

    Is the law forbidding Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men found in the Quran? This law is a form of anticompetitive law designed to discriminate against non-Muslim men and undoubtedly belongs up there with apostasy and blasphemy laws as a form of not so subtle thought coercion in my...

    Allah - The word and the idea of monotheism in the book called "Al Qur'an"

    Allah is a conjunction of Al and Ilah. Al = the, and Ilah = God, Divinity or Deity. Thus the word Allah simply means The God or The Deity that defines monotheism in one word. It is equaling the use of the words “THE MOTHER”, because a person will have one mother. When you say “The Deity” it...

    I don't get how ? Qur'an does not mention stoning to death as any capital punishment for any offense , while Bible implied it for a dozen of times .
