God in the Bible and the Holy Qur’an
Islam (Submission to the will of God) is the same and only religion ever given to the human race. It is the religion of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, Muhammed and all the other messengers mentioned or not mentioned in the scripture. Here we compare how God is presented in the Bible and in the Holy Qur’an.
|God in the Bible||God in the Qur’an|
|BIBLE: “And God said, let us make a man in our image, after our likeness.”
|QUR’AN: “Say He is God, the One and Only God, the Eternal, Absolute. He begets not, nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him!”
|BIBLE: “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He RESTED, and was REFRESHED”
|QUR’AN: “We have created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them in six days, and no fatigue touched us.”
|BIBLE: 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.
6:6 And the LORD repented that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
|QUR’AN: “With Him (God) are the keys to all secrets; none knows them except He. He knows everything on land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls without His knowledge. Nor is there a grain in the depths of the soil. Nor is there anything wet or dry, that is not recorded in a profound record.”
|BIBLE: “With the pure you show yourself pure and with the crooked you show yourself perverse”
|QUR”AN: “O you who believe stand out firmly for justice as witnesses to God even as against yourselves or your parents or your kin.”
|BIBLE: “And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the son of man had built. And the Lord said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they can do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down; and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called bable, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.”
|QUR’AN:”O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.”
|BIBLE: “We conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.”
|QUR’AN: “Do men think that they will be left alone on saying we believe and they will not be tested? But, we did test those before them and God will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.”
|BIBLE: How long will you forget me, O Lord.
|QUR’AN: He said, “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a record. My Lord never errs, nor does He forget.”
|BIBLE:Then the Lord AWAKED as one out of SLEEP, and like a mighty man that shouts by reason of WINE.
|QUR’AN: GOD: there is no other god besides Him, the Living, the Eternal. Never a moment of unawareness or slumber overtakes Him.
|BIBLE: God said to Jesus, “You are my son today I have begotten you” Heb.5:5
God said to David, “You are my son today I have begotten you”Psalm2:7
|QUR’AN: Proclaim, “He is the One and only GOD. “The Absolute GOD. “Never did He beget. Nor was He begotten.
They said, “The Most Gracious has begotten a son”! You have uttered a gross blasphemy. The heavens are about to shatter, the earth is about to tear asunder, and the mountains are about to crumble. Because they claim that the Most Gracious has begotten a son. It is not befitting the Most Gracious that He should beget a son.Every single one in the heavens and the earth is a servant of the Most Gracious. He has encompassed them, and has counted them one by one.All of them will come before Him on the Day of Resurrection as individuals.
|BIBLE: The Lord said, “I will break my covenant with them”
You said O Lord: My covenant will I not break..
38 But you cast off and abhorred, you have been wroth with your annointed. You have made void the covenant of your servant.
43 You have made all his enemies to rejoice, you have also turned the edge of his sword, and have made him to stand in the battle
46 How long, Lord? will you HIDE yourself for ever?
|QUR’AN: Such is GOD’s promise – and GOD never breaks His promise – but most people do not know.
|BIBLE: “And the Lord said, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
9:6 Slay utterly old [and] young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom [is] the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the elderly men who [were] before the house.
9:7 And he said to them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.
|QUR’AN: “GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.”(60:8)
“If they withdraw from you and fight you not, but (instead) send you (guarantees of) peace, then God alloweth no way for you (to war against them).” (4:90)
“If the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God.” (8:61)
