And so it begins. For those who know the true intent of Muslims and organizations such as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), you will recognize what the co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trials are attempting. Those who are blind to their subversive intents will nod in agreement without ever questioning those intent on our destruction.
“In fact,” Awad continued, “the Muslim declaration of faith (shahada) states: ‘There is no god but God’.”
In other words, this man is suggesting that Muslims follow the God of the Bible despite the fact their shahada states, “There is no god but Allah.” But, what he is really doing is trying to sneak in a rhetoric in order to perpetrate stealth conversion. Awad’s essay appears on the CAIR website and goes into great detail to explain his foolish comparison.
According to the Daily Caller, Awad’s essay is a response to Wheaton College’s intention to fire political science professor Larycia Hawkins after she donned a hijab to wear until Christmas to show her support for Muslims who face bigotry. Wheaton College, an evangelical Christian college, claimed Hawkins stated in a Facebook post in December that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. Her December 10th post read, “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”
This is not the first time Hawkins has been controversial at the Christian college. Prior to this incident, Hawkins clashed with the college administration on matters of religious orthodoxy, photos showing her attending a house party in Chicago last year the day of the gay pride parade, and authored a paper that suggested she supported Marxism.
The essay by Awad entitled, “Our Religion is One — Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God,” is absolute garbage in the attempt to scrub Islam of its promotion of death, oppression and vile practices. Read a portion of his essay to see where Awad is engaging in taqiyya.
Now one might claim that Muslims worship “Allah,” not “God,” but that would be in willful ignorance of the fact that “Allah” is merely the Arabic translation for “God” and that all Arabic-speaking Christians refer to “Allah” in their prayers.
Muslims commonly use either “God” or “Allah” when referring to the single deity. Islam’s Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.”
In the Quran, Islam’s revealed text, God clearly states the unity of monotheistic faiths:
“Say: ‘We believe in God, and in that which has been bestowed from on high upon us, and that which has been bestowed upon Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and their descendants, and that which has been vouchsafed to Moses and Jesus, and that which has been vouchsafed to all the [other] prophets by their Sustainer: we make no distinction between any of them. And it is unto Him that we surrender ourselves.’” (The Holy Quran, 2:136)
God also states: “(Rest assured that) those who believe (in the Quran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians. . .whoever believes in God and the last day and performs good deeds – will be rewarded by their Lord. They will have nothing to fear or to regret.” (The Holy Quran, 2:62)
