A REBUTTAL TO THE CLAIMS IN THE BOOK "Israel and the Prophecies of the Holy Qur’an" – by Ali Akbar

There are numerous claims held by Muslims against Christianity written by different authors and I thought it would be a thing of duty to give response to some of them. They are as follows:

1.     Israel and the Prophecies of the Holy Qur’an – by Ali Akbar
2.     Should you believe in Trinity?- By the WTBT$
3.     The already refuted claim of contradictions in the Bible by Ally Shabbir in a nutshell
4.     The alleged “x rated” pornography in the Bible by Osama Abdallah, e.t.c.

Firstly, I do believe that there are many religions in the world today and even though I believe, as a Christian, that Christ Jesus is the only way to salvation, I still cannot say that a religion is better than another because that is left for the Almighty God to decide.
            These books listed above carry numerous claims against the entirety of Christianity and in order to debunk Christianity, these Authors contradict themselves or what they believe in, misquote sources and add words to a misunderstood aspect of Christianity so that the reader develops a very strong hatred for Christianity and if possible, the followers of the doctrine.
            I will first and foremost, be addressing the book “Israel and the prophecies of the Holy Qur’an” by Ali Akbar. I felt so disappointed after reading this book that in fact, I felt that the name he gave the book was a mistake; he, instead, should have named the book: “Debunking Christianity” if not, what does the name “Israel and the prophecies of the Holy Qur’an” have to do with debunking Christianity? Why those attacks on Christianity? If a Christian says anything against Islam, they [Muslims] immediately give the person a name- “Islamophobic bigot”- not minding the fact that they do the same criticism to others. This man [Ali Akbar] focused solely on trying to debunk Christianity and in most instances, he, misunderstanding what he was trying to refute, condemns a particular belief [Trinity] as polytheism even though in actual sense, it is strict monotheism.
