Loving Our Muslim Friends and Neighbors (Abdu Murray, Ex-Muslim, RZIM)

Abdu Murray is Senior Vice President of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM). Since Abdu is a former Muslim and a convert to Christianity, I asked him how Christians can show love to our Muslim friends and neighbors.

#AbduMurray #Evangelism #LovingMuslims

We pray for the family in Iran but don’t have opportunities to speak with them. We share info about the Gospel and pray they understand :sparkling_heart:

▓▒░ More sincere prayers are often
uttered in the hallways outside the
Intensive Care Unit and waiting rooms
of hospitals . . . than inside a Church.
It is when they become profoundly brokenhearted - that they'll speak to Jesus Christ with all sincerity. ░▒▓

How about you, david wood, stop insulting muhammed pbuh and we wont find it hard to listen to you.

Ha ha ha Islam and Christianity two sides of the same coin, trying to spread their tentacles.
Both will sink together, when mankind & human intelligence rejects them.

No. They want to kill me to get their virgins defending their make believe diety<

I am not sure this is a good idea. What fellowship does light have with darkness?

when they changed to be Christian, they looks so handsome more with humble face. Opss! :grin:

My coworker is a veiled, meek, muslim woman. If I discussed Christianity with her I’d be fired. She’d not be if she tried convincing people Islam is peaceful. She’s very nice, but I disagree with her forced ideology. Sadly, work treats her as if she is better than me and I’m the damn glue that holds down the Fort. They give in to her. I have to fight for what I need/want

I have a Pakistani Muslim coworker that I love to talk to about religion, politics, etc. Despite what his religion teaches, he’s very open and polite regarding other religions and differences. haven’t gotten into any debates yet.

Never met a Moslim who didn’t turn their head away from me.

Hey David do video on how Mohammed meets Aisha :grin:

May all our loving Muslims come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and enjoy royal life in heaven with Jesus. Amen.

the London bridge just involved the neighbors with muslims, he was sporting his typical muslim wear , a vest of course we will probably find out that no woman could stand to be within a few feet of the kook and therefore should have gone back to the old country. You muslims know which of your people is going off the rails but you also know that it is a good thing for the caliphate, and it is dangerous to upset the muslim community that you are a part of. So you are playing both sides of the game. nov 29, 2019

What the Qur’an Teaches Muslims
We have used the most widely available English text of the Qur’an and readers are welcome to verify our quotes from the holy book. Please have an open mind and read through these verses again and again. The following quotes are taken from the most trusted Yusufali’s translation of the Qur’an.

The Qur’an tells us: “not to make friendship with Jews and Christians” (5:51), “kill the disbelievers wherever we find them” (2:191), “murder them and treat them harshly” (9:123), “fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem”
(9:5). The Qur’an demands that we fight the unbelievers, and promises “If there are twenty amongst you, you will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, you will vanquish a thousand of them” (8:65).
Allah and his messenger want us to fight the Christians and the Jews “until they pay the Jizya [a penalty tax for the non-Muslims living under Islamic rules] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (9:29).
Allah and his messenger announce that it is acceptable to go back on our promises (treaties) and obligations with Pagans and make war on them whenever we find ourselves strong enough to do so (9:3). Our God tells us to “fight the unbelievers” and “He will punish them by our hands, cover them with shame and help us (to victory) over them” (9:14).
The Qur’an takes away the freedom of belief from all humanity and relegates those who disbelieve in Islam to hell (5:10), calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) (9:28), and orders its followers to fight the unbelievers until no other religion except Islam is left (2:193).
It says that the “non-believers will go to hell and will drink boiling water” (14:17). It asks the Muslims to “slay or crucify or cut the hands and feet of the unbelievers, that they be expelled from the land with disgrace and that they shall have a great punishment in world hereafter” (5:34).
And tells us that “for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods” (22:19-22) and that they not only will have “disgrace in this life, but on the Day of Judgment He shall make them taste the Penalty of burning (Fire)” (22:9).
The Qur’an says that “those who invoke a god other than Allah not only should meet punishment in this world but the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to them, and they will dwell therein in ignominy” (25:68).
For those who “believe not in Allah and His Messenger, He has prepared, for those who reject Allah, a Blazing Fire!” (48:13). Although we are asked to be compassionate amongst each other, we have to be “harsh with unbelievers”, our Christian, Jewish and Atheist neighbours and colleagues (48:29). As for him who does not believe in Islam, the Prophet announces with a “stern command”: “Seize ye him, and bind ye him, And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire. Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits! This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High. And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent! So no friend hath he here this Day. Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds, Which none do eat but those in sin.” (69:30-37)
The Qur’an prohibits a Muslim from befriending a non-believer even if that non-believer is the father or the brother of that Muslim (9:23), (3:28). Our holy book asks us to be disobedient towards the disbelievers and their governments and strive against the unbelievers with great endeavour” (25:52) and be stern with them because they belong to Hell (66:9).
The holy Prophet prescribes fighting for us and tells us that “it is good for us even if we dislike it” (2:216). Then he advises us to “strike off the heads of the disbelievers”; and after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives” (47:4). Our God has promised to “instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers” and has ordered us to “smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them” (8:12).
He also assures us that when we kill in his name “it is not us who slay them but Allah, in order that He might test the Believers by a gracious trial from Himself” (8:17). He orders us “to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies” (8:60). He has made the Jihad mandatory and warns us that “Unless we go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish us with a grievous penalty, and put others in our place” (9:39). Allah speaks to our Holy Prophet and says “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern against them. Their abode is Hell – an evil refuge indeed” (9:73).
He promises us that in the fight for His cause whether we slay or are slain we return to the garden of Paradise (9:111). In Paradise he will “wed us with Houris (celestial virgins) pure beautiful ones” (56:54), and unite us with large-eyed beautiful ones while we recline on our thrones set in lines (56:20).
There we are promised to eat and drink pleasantly for what we did (56:19). He also promises “boys like hidden pearls” (56:24) and “youth never altering in age like scattered pearls” (for those who have paedophiliac inclinations) (76:19). As you see, Allah has promised all sorts or rewards, gluttony and unlimited sex to Muslim men who kill unbelievers in his name. We will be admitted to Paradise where we shall find “goodly things, beautiful ones, pure ones confined to the pavilions that man has not touched them before nor jinni” (56:67-71).
In the West we enjoy freedom of belief but we are not supposed to give such freedom to anyone else because it is written “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good) (3:85). And He orders us to fight them on until there is no more tumult and faith in Allah is practiced everywhere (8:39).
As for women, the book of Allah says that they are inferior to men and their husbands have the right to scourge them if they are found disobedient (4:34). It advises to “take a green branch and beat your wife”, because a green branch is more flexible and hurts more. (38:44). It teaches that women will go to hell if they are disobedient to their husbands (66:10). It maintains that men have an advantage over the women (2:228).
It not only denies the women’s equal right to their inheritance (4:11-12), it also regards them as imbeciles and decrees that their witness is not admissible in the courts of law (2:282). This means that a woman who is raped cannot accuse her rapist unless she can produce a male witness.
Our Holy Prophet allows us to marry up to four wives and he licensed us to sleep with our slave maids and as many ‘captive’ women as we may have (4:3) even if those women are already married. He himself did just that. This is why anytime a Muslim army subdues another nation, they call them kafir and allow themselves to rape their women. Pakistani soldiers allegedly raped up to 250,000 Bengali women in 1971 after they massacred 3,000,000 unarmed civilians when their religious leader decreed that Bangladeshis are un-Islamic. This is why the prison guards in Islamic regime of Iran rape the women that in their opinion are apostates prior to killing them, as they believe a virgin will not go to Hell.

Muslims have more respect for Jesus than Jews do. This false narrative that Islam is a threat to the west is pushed by Jews that literally think Jesus is burning in a lake of pissandshit. Think this is wrong? Go read the jewish talmud to see for yourself and then go ask a Muslim about Jesus, they usually say “Jesus, peace be upon him”.

NOT the kind of folks I wanna get to know or be around…contrary to what you are saying in this video…
Bangladesh: Muslims scream “Allahu akbar” as they’re sentenced to death for murdering 22 non-Muslims
“Seven Islamists have been sentenced to death for a 2016 attack on a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital in which 22 people….Some of the men shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (an Arabic phrase meaning ‘God is greatest’) as they were led away from the packed courtroom.”

As far as they were concerned, it was a triumph.

“Holey Artisan cafe: Bangladesh Islamists sentenced to death for 2016 attack,” BBc, November 27, 2019:

Seven Islamists have been sentenced to death for a 2016 attack on a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital in which 22 people, mostly foreigners, were killed.

The attack on the Holey Artisan cafe in Dhaka was carried out by a group of five men, who took diners hostage.

Eight people were on trial, accused of planning the attack and supplying weapons. One man was acquitted.

The 12-hour siege was Bangladesh’s deadliest Islamist attack. Most of the victims were Italian or Japanese.

The attack was claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group, but Bangladesh disputed this, instead holding a local militant group responsible. All of the gunmen were killed by police….

Sentencing the men in Dhaka, the judge said they wanted to undermine public safety and create anarchy.

Some of the men shouted “Allahu Akbar” (an Arabic phrase meaning “God is greatest”) as they were led away from the packed courtroom, AFP news agency reported….

… Is this April Fool’s Day??? What kind of Unicorn :poop: is this fool talking about. I don’t respect anything about Klingons and their backwards culture & ideology. And don’t pretend for one second that they don’t feel the same same way about us.

If this person was an ex-Klingon, he would know this, not stand there with a stupid grin while telling us that we need to engage them and bring up things that will make them become aggressive and hostile - because that’s what they do, we live in the real world. This was just dumb.

Tired of talking. Gonna talk ourselves into obscurity.

your constant attack to islam , give us idea about your situation. Islam as nightmare which threat your religion at your home . Mohammad let your nation at worry since 1400 years . prophet of islam is greatest man because you worry of his religion despite being in his grave .
