Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem,
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,


A recent article by the ignoramuses over at PYEM, has copied the missionary CAMEL approach. It's a method widely debated within Christian missionary circles as it is based upon a lie or interpolation. This method tries to prove that Jesus is God in the Qur'aan by applying Allah (swt)'s asma wa sifaat [names and attributes] to Jesus. This tends to split Christians, as most evangelicals would call the Islamic concept of God to be Satanic, while others are willing to accept the Islamic God in light of Christian doctrine. We would like to thank PYEM for once again, exposing themselves and showing the masses that they are dependent on copy pasted materials from age old deceivers. 


The ignorant author, begins with relaying a number of Qur'aanic ayah, where Allah (swt) says that only He is the creator. Then implies this:


Note that the life came from Jesus’ breath, not from Allah; he didn’t send life to the created bird. The breath of life was given by Jesus, he was the Al-Muhyi in this episode.
While I am sure that the author of PYEM's latest article cannot read, this is simply embarrassing from there end. Nowhere does this ayah say that Jesus is the source of anything, Jesus merely fashioned a clay bird, just as many of us have made clay animals out of plasticine. Does that make us Gods? No! So how does the clay bird come to life? Well, the same Qur'aanic ayah says how: بِإِذۡنِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

What is funny, is that they totally ignore this part of the ayah, which is repeated atleast twice. In communication studies (studying the use of languages and their applications), I have learned that you repeat something based on emphasis. The phrase in Arabic means, "by the permission of Allah". So the Qur'aan emphasises that Allah made this bird come to life. The New Testament (Acts 2:22) also says the same thing:
“Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know."
Who did the miracle? God! Through who? Jesus! Similarly in John 5:30 it says:
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
 So the New Testament agrees with the Qur'aan that the source of the miracles of Jesus, is not Jesus in himself, but God! Why did PYEM leave out such an important statement in the ayah (verse)? They quote a verse and leave out the most important parts of them! That is called intellectual dishonesty. We here at PYEM not only quote entire verses, but we give Christian sources for all of our information.


What is worse is their understanding of the knowledge of the unseen. They say Jesus saw the unseen and Muhammad (saw) did not. This is untrue, only Allah has knowledge of the unseen. What they are implying is that because Jesus narrated what the people ate in their homes (Qur'aan 3:49) that he had knowledge of the unseen. However, what does the Qur'aan say about Muhammad (saw) and Jesus concerning this knowledge?


(The All-Knower of the Unseen, and He reveals to none His Unseen. Except to a Messenger) This is similar to Allah's statement,
﴿وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَآءَ﴾
(And they will never compass any thing of His knowledge except that which He wills.) (2:255) Similarly, Allah says here that He knows the unseen and the seen and that no one of His creation can attain any of His knowledge except that which Allah allows him to have. Thus, Allah says,
﴿عَـلِمُ الْغَيْبِ فَلاَ يُظْهِرُ عَلَى غَيْبِهِ أَحَداً إِلاَّ مَنِ ارْتَضَى مِن رَّسُولٍ﴾
(The All-Knower of the Unseen, and He reveals to none His Unseen. Except to a Messenger whom He has chosen,) This includes the angelic Messenger and the human Messenger. Then Allah says,
﴿فَإِنَّهُ يَسْلُكُ مِن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ رَصَداً﴾
(and then He makes a band of watching guards to march before him and behind him.) meaning, He particularly gives him additional guardian angels who protect him by the command of Allah and they accompany him with that which is with him of Allah's revelation. Thus, Allah says,
﴿لِّيَعْلَمَ أَن قَدْ أَبْلَغُواْ رِسَـلَـتِ رَبِّهِمْ وَأَحَاطَ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ وَأَحْصَى كُلَّ شَىْءٍ عَدَداً ﴾
(Till he knows that they have conveyed the Messages of their Lord. And He surrounds all that which is with them, and He keeps count of all things.) The pronoun `he' which is in His statement,
﴿لِيَعْلَمَ﴾
(Till he knows) refers to the Prophet . Ibn Jarir recorded from Sa`id bin Jubayr that he said concerning the Ayah,
﴿عَـلِمُ الْغَيْبِ فَلاَ يُظْهِرُ عَلَى غَيْبِهِ أَحَداً - إِلاَّ مَنِ ارْتَضَى مِن رَّسُولٍ فَإِنَّهُ يَسْلُكُ مِن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ رَصَداً ﴾
(The All-Knower of the Unseen, and He reveals to none His Unseen. Except to a Messenger whom He has chosen, and then He makes a band of watching guards to march before him and behind him.) "These are four guardians among the angels along with Jibril,
﴿لِيَعْلَمَ﴾
(Till he knows) This means Muhammad ,
﴿أَن قَدْ أَبْلَغُواْ رِسَـلَـتِ رَبِّهِمْ وَأَحَاطَ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ وَأَحْصَى كُلَّ شَىْءٍ عَدَداً﴾
(that they have conveyed the Messages of their Lord. And He surrounds all that which is with them, and He keeps count of all things.)'' This was recorded by Ibn Abi Hatim. It has also been reported by Ad-Dahhak, As-Suddi and Yazid bin Abi Habib. `Abdur-Razzaq reported from Ma`mar, from Qatadah,
﴿لِّيَعْلَمَ أَن قَدْ أَبْلَغُواْ رِسَـلَـتِ رَبِّهِمْ﴾
(Till he knows that they have conveyed the Messages of their Lord.) "So that the Prophet of Allah would know that the Messengers had conveyed their Messages from Allah and that the angels have protected them and defended them.'' This has also been reported by Sa`id bin Abi `Arubah from Qatadah, and Ibn Jarir preferred this interpretation. Al-Baghawi said, "Ya`qub recited it as, (لِيُعْلَمَ) (in order to be known) this means, so that the people may know that the Messengers had conveyed the Message.'' It also could carry the meaning that the pronoun refers to Allah (i.e., So that He (Allah) may know). 

This opinion has been mentioned by Ibn Al-Jawzi in Zad Al-Masir. The meaning of this is that He protects His Messengers through His angels so that they will be able to convey His Messages. He protects what He reveals to them of revelation so that He will know that they have indeed conveyed the Messages of their Lord. 

We greatly suspect that PYEM has comprehension problems, if I were to say: "I ate the apple, by the permission of my mother." Who allowed me to do my action? My mother! Not me, I only did what I was told to do, I only did the action that I was permitted to do by my mother. Therefore we must ask, yet again, why PYEM does not quote the entire verse? It is because it exposes their lie, as again it says that Jesus did cure men and raise them to life, by God's will!

Who says this? Jesus does! In the next verse, which PYEM has refused to quote (3:50):

"(I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before me, and to make lawful to you part of what was (before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah and obey me."
 PYEM, has also invented new words to describe Jesus in the Qur'aan. They claim the Qur'aan calls Jesus a "holy son" and they cite Qur'aan 19:19, yet the word for "holy" in Arabic is not there! The word for "holy" in Arabic "Quddus". However, Jesus is called a pure son (zakiyyah - زَڪِيًّ۬ا) not holy (quddus as in the meaning divine being). They depend on English Qur'aan and not Arabic! Hence they will forever be misinformed.

Now, I am not sure if PYEM ever plans to quote something in it's entirety, but they happen to quote a hadith about Isa (as), about satan the accursed not touching him and claims he is God because he (Jesus) prevented satan from touching him. What does the hadith actually say?
The Prophet said, "When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead."
Satan did not touch Jesus because he (jesus) is God, but because he (satan) failed!

What we are asking is if they claim Jesus to be God from the Qur'aan, where is the evidence?
  • Why misquote every single verse?
  • Why not quote entire hadiths or verses?
  • Why not show the Arabic to expose your lies?
  • Why not show the verses before and after?
  • Why use the deceptive CAMEL method?
At the end of the day, PYEM has failed again and this time they clearly had to make up verses, make up interpretations and make up the reality of the hadiths they quoted. I have cited and referenced everything, while placing them in full context (i.e. by giving full verses, full arabic and english translations, verses before and after and full hadiths). They are using a tactic called "the fallacy of decontextualization", where you detract from the reality of the quoted statements by either: not fully quoting or partially referencing.


This gives you the ability to analyze the content for the reader and place your eisegesis (personal interpretation) as being valid or the only correct understanding. It is commonly used during plagiarism or when having no knowledge of the content being discussed (deception). We are sorry that PYEM has had to stoop to such new lows.

    Why isn't the Quran listed in your poll? Which of the following isn't God's word?
    Are you scared of what the results would be?
