From the above website

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Yusuf Al-Kandhelwi from his text 'The Life of the companions'




The Opening 1-7


"In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate; Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all


Beings; the All-merciful, the All-compassionate; the Master of the Day of Doom. Thee only we serve;


Thee alone we pray for succour. Guide us in the straight path; the path of those whom Thou hast


blessed, not of those against whom Thou art wrathful, nor of those who are astray."





The Family of 'Imrân 3:51


"Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path."





The Cattle 6:161-3


"Say: As for me, my Lord hath guided me unto a straight path, a right religion, the community of


Abraham, the upright, who was no idolater."


"Say: my worship and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the Worlds.


He hath no partner. This am I commanded, and I am first of those who surrender (unto Him)."


The Heights 7:158


"Say: 'O mankind, I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, of Him to whom belongs the kingdom of


the heavens and of the earth. There is no god but He. He gives life, and causes death. Believe then in


Allah, and in His Messenger, the Prophet of the common folk, who believes in God and His words,


and follow him; haply so you will be guided."





The Women 4:59


"O believers! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If


you differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in God


and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination."


64


"We did not send any Messenger but to be obeyed by the leave of Allah. Had they, after having


wronged themselves, come to you and sought forgiveness from Allah, and had the Messenger prayed


for their forgiveness, they would certainly have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful."





Spoils of war 8:20


"O believers, obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not turn away from Him, even as you are listening."

The Family of Imran 3:132


"And obey Allah and the Messenger, that ye may find mercy."





The Light 24:51 - 56


"All that the believers say, when they are called to Allah and His Messenger, that he may judge between them, is that they say, 'We hear, and we obey'; those are the prosperous. Whosever obeys Allah and His Messenger, and fears Allah and has awe of Him, they are the triumphant. They swear by Allah solemnly that, if thou order them, they will go forth. Say: Swear not; known obedience (is better). Allah is Informed of what ye do. Say: 'Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger; then, if you turn away, only upon him rests what is laid on him, and upon you rests what is laid on you. If you obey him, you will be guided. It is only for the Messenger to deliver the manifest Message.' Allah hath promised such of you as believe and do good work that He will surely make them to succeed (the present rulers) in the earth even as He caused those who were before them to succeed (others); and that He will surely establish for them their religion which He hath approved for them, and will give them in exchange safety after their fear. They serve Me. They ascribe no thing as partner unto Me. Those who disbelieve henceforth, they are the miscreants. Perform the prayer, and pay the alms, and obey the Messenger, haply so you will find mercy."





The Clan 33:70-71


"O believers, Guard your duty to Allah, and speak words straight to the point; and He will set right your deeds for you and will forgive you your sins. Whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has won a mighty triumph."





Spoils of war 8:1-4


"They will question thee concerning the spoils. Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger; so fear you Allah, and set things right between you, and obey you Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers. Those only are believers who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His signs are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust. Those who perform the prayer, and expend of what We have provided them. Those in truth are the believers; they have degrees with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous provision."


24


"O believers, respond to Allah and the Messenger when He calls you to what gives you life, and be sure that Allah intervenes between man and his heart, and that to Him you shall be gathered."





The Family of Imran 3:32


"Say: 'Obey Allah, and the Messenger.' But if they turn their backs, Allah loves not the unbelievers."





The Women 4: 13-14


"Those are Allahs' bounds. Whosever obeys Allah and His Messenger, He will admit him to gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein dwelling forever; that is the mighty triumph. But whosever disobeys Allah, and His Messenger, and transgresses His bounds, him He will admit to a Fire, therein dwelling forever, and for him there awaits a humbling chastisement."


69-70


"Whosoever obeys Allah, and the Messenger they are with those whom Allah has blessed, Prophets, just men, martyrs, the righteous; good companions they! That is the bounty from Allah; Allah suffices as One who knows."


80


"Whosoever obeys the Messenger, thereby obeys Allah; and whosoever turns his back - We have not sent thee to be a watcher over them."


Repentance 9:71


"And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends one of another; they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and they establish worship and they pay the poor-due, and they obey Allah and His Messenger. As for these, Allah will have mercy on them. Allah is Mighty, Wise."





The Family of Imran 3:31


"Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."





The Clans 33:21


"You have had an excellent example in Allah's Messenger for whosoever hopes for God and the Last Day, and remembers God often."

"Whatever spoils Allah has passed on to His Messenger from the people of the towns is for Allah and for the Messenger, and for the kinsmen and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it may not circulate only between the rich among you. And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you from, abstain (from it). And fear Allah; Allah is stern in reprisal."

Moon refutation

As for Allah being a pagan name for a moon diety this can be easily refuted.

Heres seven reasons which refute them.

Christan missionaries claim there was a deity in the shape of a moon, but if you look the symbol is not a moon, its a cresent. Thats number one

2. The Cresent is not accepted by all the muslims some do not put it onto there mosques.

3. The pagan deity hubal was in the shape of man, so if they were worshipping a man. why was the first action of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) when entering mecca to destroy ever idol present there.

4. The cresent was taken up as a symbol of Islam by the Ottomans when the conquered constantinople. As there is was the sign of Mary mother of Jesus, it symbolised purity.

5. The name Allah is the same semetic root as the word ilohim in hebrew and "im" here is a plural of respect leaving Iloh which is the same word as what Jesus used whilst on the cross. "Mark 16.34 Jesus cried in a loud voice, "E-loI, E-loI La ma sa-bach'tha-ni" Which is, "My God, My God why have you forsaken me!"

Eloi means my God from the same word.

6. The Jews had the name Abdullah which means slave of Allah or slave of God.

7. To add to this point the pre-islamic Arabs would write agreements with, "Bisik Allahumma," which means in your name Allah.

8. This name predates all religions and it goes back to the Prophet Adam (upon him peace) pre-dating Islam! The word Allah is known and was known as the ultimate name of God.

This is enough for those who see with their hearts, as well as their eyes.

What non-Muslims say about Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him), Part 2



Napolean Bonaparte as Quoted in Christian Cherfils, 'Bonaparte et Islam,' Pedone Ed., Paris, France, 1914, pp. 105, 125.
Original References: "Correspondance de Napoléon Ier Tome V pièce n° 4287 du 17/07/1799..."
"Moses has revealed the existence of God to his nation. Jesus Christ to the Roman world, Muhammad to the old continent...
"Arabia was idolatrous when, six centuries after Jesus, Muhammad introduced the worship of the God of Abraham, of Ishmael, of Moses, and Jesus. The Ariyans and some other sects had disturbed the tranquility of the east by agitating the question of the nature of the Father, the son, and the Holy Ghost. Muhammad declared that there was none but one God who had no father, no son and that the trinity imported the idea of idolatry...

"I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of Qur'an which alone are true and which alone can lead men to happiness."

Sir George Bernard Shaw in 'The Genuine Islam,' Vol. 1, No. 8, 1936.
"If any religion had the chance of ruling over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, it could be Islam."
"I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity."

"I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today."

Sir John Bagot Glubb
"Khalif (Caliph) Al-Ma'mun's period of rule (813 - 833 C.E.) may be considered the 'golden age' of science and learning. He had always been devoted to books and to learned pursuits. His brilliant mind was interested in every form of intellectual activity. Not only poetry but also philosophy, theology, astronomy, medicine and law all occupied his time."
"By Mamun's time medical schools were extremely active in Baghdad. The first free public hospital was opened in Baghdad during the Caliphate of Haroon-ar-Rashid. As the system developed, physicians and surgeons were appointed who gave lectures to medical students and issued diplomas to those who were considered qualified to practice. The first hospital in Egypt was opened in 872 AD and thereafter public hospitals sprang up all over the empire from Spain and the Maghrib to Persia."
On the Holocaust of Baghdad (1258 C.E.) Perpetrated by Hulagu:
"The city was systematically looted, destroyed and burnt. Eight hundred thousand persons are said to have been killed. The Khalif Mustasim was sewn up in a sack and trampled to death under the feet of Mongol horses.
"For five hundred years, Baghdad had been a city of palaces, mosques, libraries and colleges. Its universities and hospitals were the most up-to-date in the world. Nothing now remained but heaps of rubble and a stench of decaying human flesh."

H.G. Wells
"The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it....Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity."


Bertrand Russel in 'History of Western Philosophy,' London, 1948, p. 419.
"Our use of phrase 'The Dark ages' to cover the period from 699 to 1,000 marks our undue concentration on Western Europe...
"From India to Spain, the brilliant civilization of Islam flourished. What was lost to christendom at this time was not lost to civilization, but quite the contrary...
"To us it seems that West-European civilization is civilization, but this is a narrow view."
