Does Allah Love Unbelievers? (Christian and Muslim Perspectives)

Does Allah love unbelievers? Or does he only love Muslims?

One of Allah’s 99 Names is al-Waddud, “the Loving.” Allah is called al-Waddud twice in the Qur’an. In 11:90, the prophet Shu’aib tells the people of Midian, “Ask pardon, then, from your Lord, then turn to Him; verily, my Lord is merciful, loving!” Likewise, in 85:12-16 we read: “Lo! the punishment of thy Lord is stern. Lo! He it is Who produceth, then reproduceth, and He is the Forgiving, the Loving, Lord of the Throne of Glory, Doer of what He will.”

Nevertheless, other passages in the Qur’an qualify Allah’s love significantly. While Allah is said to love those who do good deeds (2:195), those who are pure (2:222), those who are righteous (9:7), and those who fight in his cause (61:4), the Qur’an is equally clear that Allah has no love for transgressors (2:190), ungrateful sinners (2:276), the unjust (3:57), or the proud (4:36). Even more significantly, the Qur’an states that Allah does not love non-Muslims:

Qur’an 3:31-32—Say [O Muhammad]: If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Say: Obey Allah and the Apostle; but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.

Qur’an 30:43-45—Then turn thy face straight to the right religion before there come from Allah the day which cannot be averted; on that day they shall become separated. Whoever disbelieves, he shall be responsible for his disbelief, and whoever does good, they prepare (good) for their own souls, that He may reward those who believe and do good out of His grace; surely He does not love the unbelievers.

Notice that 3:31-32 makes Allah’s love contingent on whether a person believes in Muhammad. This is similar to what we find in 19:46, which declares: “Lo! those who believe and do good works, the Beneficent will appoint for them love.”

Hence, although Allah is called “the Loving,” the Qur’an only means by this that Allah will love people once they believe in him and obey his prophet. The god of Islam has no love for sinners and unbelievers.

Interestingly, the “Love me first and I’ll love you back” kind of love exhibited by Allah in the Qur’an is condemned by Jesus in Matthew 5:43-48:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Praying for her daughter, she’s in danger, Islam is a satanic cult. Jesus is Lord :latin_cross:

The sound was too bad on this. I stopped listening.

The Roman idea of God in three persons has been turning people away from Christianity in droves. Think of a continuum. Almighty God, who expresses Himself through the entire host of heaven, chooses to represent himself in Creation as Yahweh. This is confirmed when Yahweh visits Abraham along with two of his angels. God chooses the people of Yahweh from which He chooses Mary. Through her seed God chooses to manifest Himself solely as Yeshuah, meaning Yahweh saves. Finding Himself in the flesh He chooses His apostles who begin to form the church. God puts the entire Creation on the line, that it is indeed “good”, and through it He will reign victorious. After submission to the cross and justifying His own victory over sin and death, Yahweh, now as the glorified person of Jesus (Yeshuah)occupies the throne of God heaven. The Holy Spirit, which always was the Father’s universal spirit as much as it is grounded in mankind, breathing life into every soul, fills and enlivens the church as one body. Thus, as much as the church becomes one body, the Holy Spirit is grounded upon the church.

Allah love all his creations. Allah love you more then 70 mother’s love you .

My dear humans find oldest Bible and oldest Quran. To days Bible’s stories was totally different from oldest Bible .and today’s and oldest Quran was similar :wink:

I became intrigued by this topic because it has been a struggle for me converting to Islam, imagining a less loving God. But it is wrong and this page has completely brought me to peace. Unconditional love would not be just and it would contradict any concept Hell or Justice.

The true and living God loves the transgresser

Jesus is a prophet, a messenger of God AKA Allah. Get it straight folks before you burn in hell.

If god hates non believers i whould be disappointed and my religion whould be a lie

Here’s the truth God has many names in many nations through many belief systems. The one thing all the religions of the world have in common is this, they all have faith that there is only “1” supreme being that created all things. When every believer in the creator starts to unite, no matter what their religious practices are, but rather ban together in their shared love and faith in the creator. We can completely change the world uniting all nations under love, grace, mercy and the protection of the great Creator.

Jesus is a prophet, but the fact that Jesus could do miracle things you believe he is god. Ever prophet god sent on this earth had some form of gift to show people who were worshipping candles, cemeteries and statues that there is a god that cannot be seen, heard and touched. The gift that the prophets had could provide evidence for people who didn’t want believe in god. for example Jesus could do lots of miracles things.

islam is the only true religion, islam state that there is no god but allah and mohammed,(pbuh) is the prophets.

I am so confused so one ur saying Jesus is god, god is the son of Jesus, I don’t understand this logic

god doesn’t have no partners, nor does he have a son

how can Jesus Christ be a god and a human that doesn’t make any sense.

wooaaa!!! Hey mate, you got a big misconception here. ALLAH does not hate the Non-Muslims. Where in Qur’an is it written that ALLAH hates the Disbelievers??? ALLAH hates the wrong does not the disbelievers. In Islam, we are not supposed to hate anyone. As you are familiar with the current terror going on, those guys are not following the real teachings of Islam. We hate the sin not the sinner. There are many cases written in Qur’an which clearly do show the love and mercy of ALLAH for the disbelievers. If the Creator of the Universe, the Almighty would hate the disbelievers do you think that you would be alive now? HE just says “Be” and it is!

We Christians will be persecuted and hated by all nations and falsely say all kinds of evil against us. And why all types of people and Christians don’t trust the teachings of Islam and what is written in the Quran by the creator and founded by Muhammad alone and those follow him to listen and record his sayings and doings in history of time until now.Muslims today don’t mind us sharing and talking to us about theirs and ours. Does Allah love well lets see:Hell and Hate Does Islam tell Muslims to love or hate those outside the faith?

            There is no place in the Quran where Muhammad tells Muslims to love                 people of other religions. By contrast there are at least three dozen                 verses that tell believers to fight against non-Muslims, and about 500 that speak                 of their place in Hell. They are from each period in Muhammad's life,                 scattered across 87 of the Quran's 114 chapters. 

To put this in perspective, nearly one out of twelve verses in the Quran implies that Allah hates non-Muslims to the extent that he will torment them for eternity in horrible ways. The Suras that make reference to this comprise about 95% of the Quran’s total volume. If Allah creates infidels merely to fuel the fires of Hell, then there is little reason for Muslims to believe that such lives are of any worth in this world either. Quran As mentioned, there are nearly 500 verses from 87 Suras that speak of Hell. This is just a sample:Quran (40:71-72) - When the fetters and the chains shall be on their necks; they shall be dragged Into boiling water, then in the fire shall they be burnedQuran (22:19-21) - But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads; Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron Quran (4:56) - Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, WiseQuran (56:92-94) - But if he is of the rejecters, the erring, then the welcome will be boiling water and roasting at hell-fire
As to what regard Muslims are to show for those who don’t believe, the Quran says to be ruthless toward them, since they are going to Hell anyway:Quran (9:73) - O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destinationQuran (66:9) - O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.

Quran (8:55) - Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve
Quran (9:30) - And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah… Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they! Quran (4:52) - Those (Christians) are they whom Allah hath cursed…Quran (4:47) - O you (Jews) who have been given the Book! believe that which We have revealed, verifying what you have, before We alter faces then turn them on their backs, or curse them as We cursed the violaters of the Sabbath, and the command of Allah shall be executed. Quran (5:59-60) - This verse begets the infamous belief on the part of some Muslims that Jews are descended from swine and apes, since it says that wicked Jews (at least) were transformed by Allah in the past. (See also 2:64)Throughout this passage Allah does not love unbelievers or Muslims either.

Allah sucks

worship one God, he is the creator of the heaven and the earth, us muslim we worship one God, all alone… we obey him, ask him for forgiveness, every nation have good/bad, if someone commits a crime you can’t hang the whole nation… educated ur self… do your self a favour read the holy Quran, compare holy bible and holy Quran word by word, and you will see which one is the God (Allah) word… MAY GOD ( ALLAH) guide us all to the right path, and save us from the hell fire…

“Oh People of the Book (jew, and christian)! Commit no excesses in your religion, nor say of God anything but the truth. Jesus, the son of Mary, was (no more than) a messenger of God, and His Word which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Say not, ‘Trinity.’ Desist! It will be better for you, for God is One God, Glory be to Him! (Far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a Disposer of affairs” holy Quran (4:171).
