Interview with Jay Smith on Confronting Islam

Jay Smith regularly confronts Islam at Speakers’ Corner in London. Yet many Christians (and non-Christians) believe that it is wrong to criticize Muhammad or the Qur’an. Is there a place in Christianity for pointing out the obvious flaws and weaknesses inherent in Islam? David Wood and Jay Smith discuss the issue.

Keep them (islam) busy defending their own lies. Take it to their doorsteps.

6 Quran Quotes That Teach Love, Tolerance and Freedom of Religion
Islam, according to the Quran, teaches love and compassion for every human being, no matter their religion, says author Adnan Oktar whose television show is watched by millions in Turkey and the Arab world.

He believes the problem for the majority of Muslims is that some groups are following traditions and superstitions invented centuries after the Quran was first sent and the Prophet lived, and these have gotten more radical over time.

After the attacks of September 11, 2001, Oktar published a book, Islam Denounces Terrorism. He argues that violent and intolerant beliefs about Islam go against the teachings of the Quran. Here, he presents six quotes that support his claim.

Peace is the Cornerstone
The word “Islam” is derived from the word meaning “peace” in Arabic. Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceful life where the infinite compassion and mercy of God manifests on earth. God calls all people to live by the moral values He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace and love can be experienced all over the world.

“O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Holy Quran: 2, 208)

In the verse above, Islam intrinsically calls for peace and fosters a life in absolute sincerity and honesty before God. Therefore it is vitally important for an individual to believe in God with his own will and aspiration, and observe God’s commands and advice through personal conscientious contentment.

No One Should be Forced to Believe in Islam
“There is no compulsion where the religion is concerned.” (Holy Quran: 2/ 256)

As stated in the verse, no one can be compelled to live by Islamic morals. Conveying the existence of God and the morals of the Qur’an to other people is a duty for believers, but they call people to the path of God with kindness and love and they never force them. It is only God Who guides people to the right way. This is related in the following verse:

“You cannot guide those you would like to but God guides those He wills. He has best knowledge of the guided.” (Holy Quran/28: 56)

Freedom of Thought and Religion are Paramount
The Quran provides an environment where people can fully enjoy freedom of thought and freedom of religion and allows people to live by the faith and values they believe in. According to Islam, everyone has the right to live freely by his beliefs, whatever they may be. Anyone who wants to support a church, a synagogue or a mosque must be free to do so. In this sense, freedom of religion, or freedom of belief, is one of the basic tenets of Islam. There is always freedom of religion wherever the moral values of the Qur’an prevail.

That is why Muslims also treat Jews and Christians, described in the Qur’an as “the People of the Book,” with great justice, love and compassion. God says in the Qur’an:

“God does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you in the religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. God loves those who are just.” (Surat al-Mumtahana, 8)

Compete With Each Other in Doing Good

Muslims who share these basic values believe in the need to act together with Christians and Jews. They therefore strive to eliminate prejudices stemming from provocations by unbelievers and fanatics. Jews, Christians and Muslims should strive together to spread moral virtues across the world.

SEE: All the Good News Stories About Muslims on GNN

God explicitly states that the existence of people from different faiths and opinions is something that we have to acknowledge and welcome heartily, for this is how He created and predestined humankind in this world:
“We have appointed a law and a practice for every one of you. Had God willed, He would have made you a single community, but He wanted to test you regarding what has come to you. So compete with each other in doing good. Every one of you will return to God and He will inform you regarding the things about which you differed.” (Surat al-Ma’ida, 48)

In acknowledgment of this fact, Muslims have an inner love and compassion for people of all faiths, races and nations, for they consider them as the manifestations of God in this world and treat them with an heartfelt respect and love. This is the very basis of communities administered by Islamic morality.

The values of the Qur’an hold a Muslim responsible for treating all people, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, kindly and justly, protecting the needy and the innocent and “preventing the dissemination of mischief”. Mischief comprises all forms of anarchy and terror that remove security, comfort and peace.

“God does not love corruption”. (Surat al-Baqara, 205)

The Quran is like the bible: a big book of multiple choice. There are also many, many quotes in the Quran that say the polar opposite of these examples.

To see these examples, do a search for “Skeptics Annotated Quran” and when you get to that page click on the “Intolerance” link on the right.

I am afraid you come to think just because you read some such verses without taking the contexts into account.

Lol you seem to have misunderstood the English translation. It literally says:

In 2:256 it clearly states the complete opposite of what you think…
La ikraha لا اكراه literally meaning “No forcing in the religion” So no compulsion in acceptance of religion… get it now? You shouldn’t be pushed to accept it.

In the other verse, where is anything about me forcing you into religion, lol? Apparently there’s no contradiction with the first verse.
Thank you.

First off as a Muslim man I would like to apologize for the behavior of the majority of Muslim men out there. That being said, I would like to direct you to the Quran on this subject matter. The only restriction placed on Muslim marriage are pagans. If you are a Christian or Jewish, a Muslim is free to marry. Culturally Muslim’s can be perceived as distant and has much to do with the Islamic lifestyle. This is why it is a strong suggestion by the Muslim community to marry within the community. It is actually an explicit sin for a Muslim to request his potential partners conversion; as Islam clearly requires that, a convert, converts solely for the love of Allah.

Again I apologize for the behavior of some Muslim men and any negative impression they may have left you with, but I assure you True Islam (the Islam that teaches us to respect the teaching of Jesus and Moses, and considers all people of Abrahamic faith to be cousins) , not what you see in the media, is actually a beautiful religion. I truly wish you a wonderful day and hope you will look further in…

PARTNERS IN CRIME IN THE NAME OF JESUS I LOVE THIS JOB GOD BLESS YOU GUYS

You are few schoolers bringing the truth to the world God bless you the rest of the Christianson sleeping under the cover of wealth. Sharia will kick them up that will be too late for christians.

Keep doing what you’re doing. I left Islam, converted to Christianity thanks to you guys. You give us a lot of infornation we never heard before.

I think God is saving Middle east COUNTRIES by Christian leaders like Jay Smith, David Wood, Al Fadi, Sam shoumeem, Hatun Tash and many more great leaders converted from Islam false teachings to Christ centered life’s. Praise God for he has begun His protocol to start saving the nation’s.

Great to c u both together, I had been waiting for this day again to come. You both are the pillars of CHRISTIANITY irrespective of false claims by islams.
Praise God for both of you.

Happy to see both together…
Both are blessed and doing a great and courageous act…

Hello to both of you! I believe Jesus. But there is one question which haunts me all the time. Why iscariot Judas never be forgiven when son of man must be betrayed and crucified? Someone answer me please, I am asked this question mostly by Christians who all equally believe in Jesus.

Two great men of God​:fist::heart:

Certainly agree. Christian need to moved on
