Hello Christian Brothers & Sisters,

I have read your article to do with the connection between Darwins’ theories and those views that the Nazi’s had and found them very informational.

I myself am a muslim, and my belief also says that God Almighty created us, and our Mother and FAther was Eve and Adam, Islam is against the theory of Evolution. In the Qur’an (holy scripture) it says that people should not judge on colours or nations.

Truly GOD will not judge us on colour or nations on the day of JUDGEMENT, in HIS eyes we are all equal, brethren to each other.

Your website is very good and explains everything, may ALLAH (GOD) guide us all!!! Ameen

Dear U.,

Thank you for contacting Answers in Genesis. It is good to hear your feedback. It is sad that the Nazi’s had plans to exterminate so many peoples. With their mindset of evolution, they failed to acknowledge that we are all related through Noah and ultimately Adam and Eve. They were murdering their own brothers and sisters.

Reading the Qu’ran and parts of the Hadith one finds that Muhammad had tremendous respect for the Christian Bible. A few verses from the Qu’ran that display this are:

Surah 4:136 AYA ‘O ye who believe! Believe in God and His Apostle, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Apostle and the scripture which He sent to those before (him). Any who denieth God, His Angels, His Books, His Apostles, and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far, far astray.’

Surah 3:84 AYA ‘We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes (of Israel), and in the Books given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them.’

There are other verses as well. If you would like more on this please refer to the Muslim-Christian dialogue page and see the following article: What does the Qu’ran say about the Jewish and Christian Scriptures?

We know that even Muhammad had a copy of the Bible that he kept with him from Surah 7:157 and 2:89 (MP). Muhammad inserted that it was acceptable to learn from the Bible and that it was trustworthy, especially the books of Moses (Surah 53:36 AYA). Those who were not acquainted with the books of Moses had no excuse to be ignorant.

As a Muslim, it would be consistent to use the Bible as Muhammad did. In Surah 10:94 AYA, Muhammad says that if there were doubts about a particular message then they should consult the Scriptures before him (Jewish and Christian Scriptures). It is fascinating that many Christians and Muslims do not go to the Bible very often as a source of information that came from the almighty God.

The Qu’ran and Hadith also speak very highly of Jesus the Messiah. He is even regarded as the only person to ever live without sin. He made no mistakes and fulfilled what God had him do without one flaw. Strangely, many Muslims do not even know his basic teachings such as the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ which is a beautiful message.

For more about Jesus’ purposes please read the following article: The Way, the Truth and the Light.

In Genesis chapter 3, we find the historical event of Adam and Eve rebelling from God. At this, God cursed the creation and death entered into the world. God, because He loved us, gave a prophecy (Genesis 3:15) that there would be a way to return to Him and it would be a sign given as a virgin birth. (Also Isaiah 7:14 saying that the virgin’s son would be called ‘Immanuel’ meaning ‘God with us.’) This was but one prophecy of many to come (through Moses, the Psalms, and the Prophets). Jesus was born of the virgin Mary and is the way back to the God.

To clarify, God did not have relations with Mary to conceive Jesus. This is both blasphemous to Muslims and to Christians. The reference to ‘Son of God’ is referring to Jesus as being the part of God to come down and inhabit a human body to live a sinless life and die as the final sacrifice to cover all peoples’ sins. By doing this, it allows all people to be saved and bring them back to grace with God if they only confess with theirs mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord. This is found in Paul’s letter to the Romans:

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
