Muslim Question

Does Allah only love Muslims? Someone told me that the qu'ran says that Allah dosn't love unbelievers.

  • yeah according to the qu'ran thats right but the Christian God loves all... thats the difference between Allah and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Unbelievers in the qu'ran include the jews and christians....

  • The Muslim God is the same God that the Jews and Christians worship - the God of Abraham, and as any Christian, Muslim, or Jew will tell you, He loves everyone.

  • Muslims trace their line through Abraham's eldest son, Ishmael, Jews and Christians through Isaac. But all three faiths trace back to Abraham and worship Abraham's God.
    Muslims refer to Christians and Jews as "people of the book", because they follow the previous revelations (the Torah and the Gospels) of God. They (Muslims) believe that the Torah and Gospels are true, but have been tainted through years of translations and copies and so on. Therefore the Quran is the ultimate word, but is meant as an accompaniment and addition to the two, not a replacement of them. It is meant to complete the revelations of God to man, and to reiterate His message for us, as Muslims believe the Torah and Gospels have lost their validity through the generations (as I've previously said). The Quran, however, is not considered a true Quran if it is not in Arabic (it is considered a TRANSLATION) in order to retain the original significance.

  • The Quran describes God (Allah) as merciful, loving, benevolent, etc. (here is a list of His 99 names)

    Muslims also believe that nonbelievers who live good lives have a chance of salvation, while (most) Christians do not because Muslims believe that God judges our deeds in this life and (most) Chrisitans put all the emphasis on whether or not someone is saved, or has accepted Jesus.

    So, I think at least, that Muslims believing that nonMuslims have a chance of going to heaven when (most) Christians believe that nonChristians CAN'T go to heaven shows that Islam shows more of God's love than Christianity in that sense... But that's just me...
