Allah means God in Arabic or the god as some contend. Muslims say yes he is the same god and some Christians say yes he is as well, but many Christians say "no He is not." The God in the Bible has a son, but Allah says he doesn't. Muslims say Christians associate partners unto God, but Christians say that is not true and that they are monotheistic or that God is one.

Muslims do not believe when Christians say they are not polytheistic. Christians say Muhammad isn't a confirmed Biblical prophet, but Muslims say he is. Muslims say the Bible has been corrupted, but Christians say the Quran is corrupted.

The Bible says Ishmael is no prophet. Muslims say he is. Jesus said he is "The Way, the Truth, and the Life." Muslims say he was that for his time and for the Jews he came only. Christians say that Jesus is the truth for all time and all people and that Jesus never said I show the truth or the way.

The Quran says that Jesus is not the word of God made flesh, but the Bible says he is. Muslims don't have eternal security, but Christians say we can know now from the Bible if we will be saved and know now if we have eternal life because God assures us. Christians believe that Jesus is Deity, but Muslim so no he is just a prophet or messenger.

Any of these topics on this thread are welcome and open for discussion and or debate!

That while many Christians and others condemn Islam on the grounds that it is "sexist" and "anti-female", the fact is that this religion is the fastest growing in the world. That in Europe and in the USA 70% of its converts are women.


Irrelevant. Your argument is based on the premise that women cannot convert to a sexist ideology, but that's not the case at all. There's nothing logically preventing women from adhering to an anti-woman ideology, and so pointing out that most converts to Islam are women does nothing to refute the claim that the teachings of Islam are sexist.

That the vast majority of these are white women.


Also irrelevant. What does the racial background of a religion's converts have to do with the truth or morality of a religion?

That these converts are producing children at a far faster rate than any other religion.


Please provide a source for this claim.

And that because of the pace of this growth, by the end of the century Muslims will be the majority religion in this world.


Please provide a source for this claim.

Question: if Islam is as sexist as claimed by its critics, why are women converting to it at such huge numbers?


Because they find something attractive about the religion. This doesn't mean that it isn't harmful, just that it may be attractive for some reason. After all, millions of people choose to start smoking tobacco even when they know the harm that tobacco use causes.

Why are religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and others failing to attract so many women?


Who says that these religions are not also sexist?

These are questions you may want to direct to those women who convert to Islam. An even more significant question is, why are they not converting to Christianity if it is so protective and non-sexist as some say it is?




As for population growth, that is subject to speculation and I do not have time to research it much but here is one article:

I cannot say it is reliable as factors can readily change within short periods of time. By the way, others deny these claims quite vigorously.

I never said Christianity wasn't sexist. I think it is, though maybe a bit less oppressive than Sunni Islam. All Abrahamic religions are misogynistic.

Not sure that I want to characterize any religion as such. Compare Islam to Hinduism and to Hindu society where female infanticide and genocide is practiced FAR more than all societies combined:



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_infanticide_in_India

http://dvkperiyar.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/genocide-of-women-in-hinduism.p...




This holocaust surpasses what Hitler did. Yet, there is virtually no criticism from the West or the East.


By contrast, Islam has the greatest female conversion rate in the world.


So which religion(s) is/are the most sexist? Abrahamic or pagan?

How can Allah and the Christian God possibly be the same god? Allah doesn't have a son...


So which is it.
  1. The Christians and the Muslims believe different things about the same god? The Christians, for example, believe that God has a Son while the Muslims believe that God cannot have a Son. OR
  2. The Christians and the Muslims believe in two distinct gods?


It is a). Same God, different beliefs about that God. It should be pointed out that Jews don't believe God has a (literal) Son either.

Yet all three, Jews, Christians and Muslims worship the same God of Abraham, Yahweh, although Muslims know Him as "Allah".

Is a table with its top removed still a table? Muhammad had jumbled ideas of Judaism and Christianity and the system he cobbled together produced Allah, a derivative from Yahweh. Since Muhammad wasn't in the business of inventing new gods, Allah is Yahweh with a personality change. Given the state of the world today, it is a dangerous personality change, far removed from the God of Love in the NT.
