How to Respond to the “Muslims are Obsessed with Sex” Argument

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I’m sure you’ve all encountered this argument before. Recently, the British government made the accusation that the hijab sexualises and objectifies young women (this was made in objection to Islamic schools mandating hijab at the age of nine). This argument seems to be pervasive in Western literature, and many ex-Muslims also make similar claims. I believe the general attitude can be summarized in this meme recently posted on Facebook by an atheist page: Continue Reading

Beliefs That Do Not Make Sense: Salvation in Protestant Christianity

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

If God is All-Loving, and we are saved through grace without the condition of good works, why is it that there is the requirement of faith at all, according to Protestant Christianity? In other words, why do I need to believe in Jesus to be saved?

Why can’t I be saved with neither faith nor good works? Continue Reading

  يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ ۚ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا ۖ فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا ۚ وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرًا – 4:135 Continue Reading

The “Atheists Are More Moral” Argument

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I’ve often heard the argument that atheists are more moral; indeed the only ones who are truly moral. Why you make ask? Well, because religious believers only do good deeds for the sake of heaven or from fear of hell, or otherwise to get something from God, rather than doing good for goodness sake. Continue Reading
