Islam for Dummies
Holy Bible or Sacred Quran, Ahmed Deedat



Page last updated:





There's a lot of Christian Preachers who make derogatory claims about whether the Quran is a "sacred" book. As an example, Terry Jones made these statements when he wanted to burn Qurans :

Pastor Terry Jones : Islam is of the devil.
CNN Rick Sanchez : Why would you want to do this to 1.5 billion people ... by burning their most sacred book ...
Pastor Terry Jones : Well, for one thing, for US the book is not sacred.

So according to "them", it's not a sacred book. So what we're gonna do today is we're gonna find a test of sacred scripture from the Bible and see if the Bible can pass that test.

You see, the Quran recognizes that the original Torah and the original Gospel are sacred books, but these books have been corrupted, And the Bible itself testifies to this fact :
Jeremiah 8:8 - How can you say 'We are wise, and the LAW of the lord is with us'? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a LIE.

Ahmed Deedat - Aug 7, 1988 debate with Anis Shorrosh, The Quran or the Bible: Which is God's Word

Dr. Shorrosh began, at the beginning of this rebuttal of his, with a verse from the Bible :
2 Timothy 3:16 - All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness
It's a beautiful test, which from that he concludes that all scripture meaning the Bible is based on these 4 tests. If it is the word of God, it must prove 1 of these 4 points ...
Anything, if it is from God, it must serve some purpose. It is not for your entertainment. It must be your
- Doctrine
- Reproof : you do certain things wrong, you'll be punished
- Correction : not like this, but like that
- and encouraging you to good deeds ; Instructions unto Righteousness.
Beautiful, beautiful ...

Actually, Paul was talking to Timothy, about the previous verses, in verse 15, talking about the Old Testament. He was not talking about Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and Peter, and James, and Jude. But however, if the Christian wants to lump it all together, so lump it.


Ahmed Deedat
Judges 16:1 - Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot there, and went in to her.
Come on, come on, tell me now, what does it teach you?
Samson goes to Gaza, and he sees a harlot, a whore, a prostitute, and he goes in unto her. Full stop, nothing more. There's not a single redeeming word or phrase.
... or maybe this was a Palestinian whore or prostitute, so it means nothing. This was a Palestinian. Maybe if she was an Israeli whore, it might have meant something. She was not an Israeli. So God didn't give him AIDS, he didn't give him VD, didn't give him gonorrhea, nothing, nothing. This great hero, he went to Gaza, and he went in unto her. The more modern Bibles they say 'He spent the night with her'. What, doing what, hallelujahs? What were they doing? Spending the night with a prostitute, all night, what do you do, hallelujahs.
Look, what is the moral.

You see the Christians, they say the Quran is forged, it is copied from the Jews and the Christians.
I'm asking, what is there to copy? What have you got that is worth copying?

When you go and sleep with your own mother, your own daughter, your own sister, your own daughter-in-law, that is incest. There are 10 cases of incest in this book of God. 10! The types and types of incest that you can commit. A textbook, if you want to know what types. And as a result, in my country the whites of South Africa, most of them are Christians. 8% of all whites in South Africa, they commit incest with their own daughters, and 13% of the Americans are committing incest with their own daughters.

Dr. Vernon Jones, a psychologist of great repute, he carried out experiments on groups of school children to whom certain stories were being read, and he said that these stories made certain slight but PERMANENT changes in character. The type of story that you read, will create the type of mentality that you have. If you read junkie stuff, your mind will become junkie, you eat junkie food, your body will become junkie.

Amazing, out of the 10 cases of incest, Muhammad didn't copy a single one.

Then you read, RAPE. Not only rape, how to rape your own sister if you want to, it's given to you in detail ( 2 Samuel 13:6 ). If you want to rape your own sister. One of the sons of David, he sets you an example, what you must do if you want to rape your own sister.
GANG RAPE is there ( Judges 19:25 ). A son goes and cohabits with 10 of his father's wives ( 2 Samuel 16:22 ). 10 in a row.
I'm telling you, this is in the Holy Book. A Christian lady here in the UK, she wrote a letter, she says "ban the book". Ban the Bible. What does it have, ban it. But of course, your salvation.

Numbers 31:15 - And Moses said to them: Have you kept all the women alive?
All the women, you have kept them alive?
Numbers 31:17 - Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones,
Every male child, among the little ones of the Palestinians, kill them.
Numbers 31:17 - and kill every woman who has known a man intimately.
If any woman has ever had sex with a man, kill them also.
Numbers 31:18 - But keep alive for yourselves all the young girls
Not the little ones, little ones are a liability, you have to feed them and bring them up, no time for that. The Palestinian young girls.
Numbers 31:18 - who have not known a man intimately.
This is the instruction given to Jewish soldiers in the field. Now when they see a young Palestinian girl, how can you verify whether this woman has experienced sex or not. How do you verify? The soldier in the field. He doesn't know about the saliva test. He doesn't know anything about it. The only way is to rape and ravish these Palestinian girls to verify whether a man has been through her or not. And if they discover that she has already been used, 2nd hand, chop off her head. If not, keep them.
And they saved for themselves
Numbers 31:35 - and thirty-two thousand persons in all, of women who had not known a man intimately.
32,000 Palestinian girls, whom no man had known. After raping and ravishing them, they saved for themselves 32,000 for themselves. And out of that, the Lord Almighty, God Almighty, must also have his pound of flesh. So it says:
Numbers 31:40 - ... of which the LORD’s tribute was thirty-two persons.
I'm asking, what does the Lord do with 32 raped and ravished Palestinian girls. You tell me. In a book of God! God giving instructions, that you go along and you verify. God talking this filth and dirt, kill every little child? Male and female, kill them all? Only young girls, you must keep, and they too, one that they have not known man sexually.

1 Samuel 18:27 - therefore David arose and went, he and his men, and killed two hundred men of the Philistines. And David brought their foreskins,
you know when you do circumcision, that skin, which you throw away: very valuable. Don't throw it away. It might be used for currency.

1 Samuel 18:27 - and they gave them in full count to the king,

full count, he counted out: 1, 2, 3, you know like you say $1, $2, $3, he counted out 200 cash foreskins

1 Samuel 18:27 - that he might become the king’s son-in-law.
to get a wife, a princess, you know Saul's daughter Michal. He paid out in foreskins of the Palestinians was used for currency.

Judges 16:1 - Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot there, and went in to her.
This is supposed to be in the Word of God. Now, under the test that is given to us by Dr. Shorrosh, where does it fit in? Is that your Doctrine? That when you go someplace and you see a prostitute, you go in unto her? Your Doctrine, is that your teaching? Reproof: was there any reproof given by God Almighty, saying 'I'll punish you. I'll put you in hell.' Nothing. Correction: saying 'No, you mustn't do this, but you must marry her, and then you can cohabit.' What? What instruction, nothing at all. So, I'm asking the Doctor or any Christian at any time, please, please, read the Bible with this critical eye. There are things there in the Bible you can't fit in anywhere.

Genesis 38 - you read about Judah, the father of the Jewish race. He has 3 sons,
Genesis 38:6 - and he gets the elder son married.
Genesis 38:7 - And he does something that God didn't like, so God killed him. Ask the Christian, where does it fit in? He says reproof, which is correct. God told him not to do a certain thing, and he did it, so God killed him.
Genesis 38: 8 - So now, Judah tells his 2nd son, Onan, you go in unto your brother's wife, according to a Jewish custom and make a child by her, so that the name of the deceased might carry on.
Genesis 38:9 - This guy Onan, he goes unto his brother's wife, trying to fulfill his duty, but at the critical moment, the jealousy enters his heart, he says look, the seed is mine, but the name will be my brother's. So he spills it on the ground. I'm reading the Bible. He spilled it on the ground,
Genesis 38:10 - so God killed him also. Where does that fit in? Reproof. So look, this is your custom, you're supposed to do a certain duty, you perform. You don't, God kills you also.
Genesis 38:11 - The old man sends his daughter-in-law back to her father's house, telling her that the next time the 3rd fellow is grown up, I will call you. But conveniently, he forgets.
Genesis 38:14 - So the woman wants to take revenge.
Genesis 38:13 - So she gets the news that her father-in-law is going to Timnah ... to shear his sheep.
Genesis 38:14 - So she goes and sits by the way-side, and covers her face.
Genesis 38:15 - The old man passing by, he sees this woman, and he's game. So he comes to her, I'm reading the Holy Bible, he says
Genesis 38:16 - ... "Please let me come in to you" ...
What Samson did in Gaza, same thing, let me do to you.
Genesis 38:16 - ... So she said,
I'm reading the Holy Bible:
Genesis 38:16 - ... “What will you give me, that you may come in to me?”
Genesis 38:17 - And he said, “I will send a young goat from the flock.”
Genesis 38:17 - So she said, “Will you give me a pledge till you send it?”
Genesis 38:18 - Then he said, “What pledge shall I give you?”
Genesis 38:18 - So she said, “Your signet and cord, and your staff that is in your hand.”
Genesis 38:18 - Then he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him.
So the old man gave it to her, and he cohabited with his daughter-in-law by the roadside, and made her pregnant. Twins, straight away, one hit, twins. And these twins are Perez and Zerah, who are the great-grandfathers of Jesus Christ according to the genealogy. Children of incest are the great grandfathers of Jesus (which Muslims deny). Now I'm asking, in this test that you gave, beautiful test : 2 Tim 3:16 - doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction unto righteousness. I'm asking where does this fit in, into the Book of God, tell me. And if you can't fit it in anywhere, then it fits into pornography.

Now these were just a few examples of unholy content in the Holy Bible. And they want to say the Quran isn't sacred! Mr. Deedat, what do we say to this?

Look, Jesus told you, he warned you. He said
Matthew 7:1 - Judge not, that you be not judged.
Matthew 7:2 - For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; ...
Matthew 7:5 - Hypocrite! ...
Matthew 7:3 - And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?
Matthew 7:5 - ... First remove the plank from your own eye ...

So Preachers, before you attack the Quran about ANYTHING, you better check the Bible first.
