As one of the Christian apologists, one of my basis that Qur’an is not the Word of God since God Himself of the Qur’an ordered the killing of enemies.

Here is what is written in Surah 9:5 of the Qur’an.

Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”(Surah At-Taubah 9:5)

In spite of this, I embraced the fact that the Bible is the true Word of God since it is the reverse of what Qur’an says.

“But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”(Matthew 5:44, NRSV)

The God in the Bible taught us to love our enemies.

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink, for you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.”(Proverbs 25:21-22)

Islam defenders said we do not understand this verse because according to them, it does not say to kill innocent people but pagan soldiers. It speaks about war and it is natural that there are killings in war.

The Surah 9:5   is the verse of the sword. It is the final word of Allah concerning people who do not repent or get converted to Islam. It is one verse Allah used in the Qur’an to cancel or erase all previous soft verses of the Qur’an.

Muslim scholars said there were 124 verses that match perfectly teachings of Muhammad when he said, “I have been commanded to engage in war against people until they testify that there is no god except Allah as Mohammed is the messenger of Allah (becoming Muslim).” As Allah stated in Qur’an 3:85: And whoever desires any other religion except Islam, so it will not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he will be of the losers.

This is what one great Islamic scholar said in his book What does the Koran really say?
