Confronting an Imam: Like catching a kid a cookie Jar

 I came across this email circulating around and figured I’d share it.  not sure where it came from.

Allah or Jesus by Rick Mathes

Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.

When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked:

Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’

There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers!’

I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’

The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of ‘a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’

He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’

I then stated, ‘Well sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Charles Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’

The Imam was speechless!

I continued, ‘I also have problem with being your ‘friend’ when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with Rick’s way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.

    This story can’t possibly be true …… they usually lie and prevaricate so well!

  • Rudy

    Yes they do lie, but I imagine at times they are unprepared, in the West especially, to be challenged in such a manner. Obviously is taqqiya was not strong, and the infidel in question who challenged him is a great warrior for freedom and intelligent free thought.

    Taking stories like this as fact and passing them along is dangeros — especially to a simple mond. The “hanging his head in shame” is the tip off. I agree with abuTrevor. While the base thninking might be true, the story is a fabrication. Thisw email account is but a dream someone had and, as we all know, our dreams always end in our favor. Sorry, but anyone that would qoute this story is and — well, you fill in the blank. Peace, in the name of our Savior, YaHshua

    I agree with abutrevor — the give away is the, hanging his head in shame, this is but a dream. This account is from someone’s imagination about how perfect it would be to confront and Imam on this point, but in reality I am afraid it would not go like the author of this bogus email would like. The author’s point is made but the stroy is a fabrication no doubt. Anyone quoting this email as a source had better have their brains check for a virus. Peace to you all, in our Savior’s name, Yahshua
