Al Fadi and Sam Shamoun compare the presence of God in the Tabernacle in the Old Testament with Christ's incarnation and dwelling among us when he came to earth in human body(John 1). They also point out when Jews pray towards the temple they are acknowledging God's presence in it, not so the case when muslims face the Kaabah they do not say that God's presence is in it.
Al Fadi talks about one social media platform, Facebook, blocking , how is that happening, and its effect on the ministry. He asks for prayer and support to face this attack and to be more effective in speaking the truth. Despite all the opposition God is still at work in the lives of people who are being reached by FB posts.
Why do muslims face al kaabah when they pray? Are muslims prayers effective if they were not facing the kaabah? Is facing the kaabah a command or a choice? What is the role of the black stone in Islam? listen as Al Fadi and Sam Shamoun answer these questions and more.
Why do muslims run around the Kaaba seven times at least once in their lifetime? Do muslims worship Muhammad? Is there forgiveness of sins apart from Muhammad?(Q 4: 64,65).Why did Muhammad kiss and touch the black stone and the Kaaba? These questions and more are answered in this episode by Al fadi and Sam Shamoun.
Al Fadi talks about two series of videos that he has done alone or with others on U-tube channel;cirainternational. 1.The doctrine of the original sin in Islam. Al calls it The Islamic original sin dilemma. Muslims do not believe in the original sin so Al Fadi shows from Islamic sources that Islamic sources talks about the original sin. 2. A series with Dr. Jay Smith: a. The unknown history of Islam. b. The Quran many problems. Listen to hear more details about the subject.
Al Fadi discusses the subject of intercession in Islam. He points to his Facebook post on March 3rd. He gives examples from both the Quran and the Hadith that contradicts each other on the subject; some say that Mohammad will be an intercessor for muslims and others says that he can't. Listen as Al Fadi explains the subject.
What is the Kaaba? Why do muslims face it when they pray? Who built it and why? What do muslims do when they go on a pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca? Al Fadi and Sam Shamoun are starting a new series on this. Listen as they answer the above questions and give more details about it.
Al Fadi highlights one Quranic passage(Q 48: 8-9) to show that the word tawheed in the Quran does not mean oness but unification. He goes on to discuss several English translations beside the Arabic to show that honor and reverence are ascribed to Muhammad as to Allah making Mohammad a partner with Allah(See Facebook post on Feb.23).
Al Fadi explains in this episode that Muhammad is the supreme deity in Islam and without him their is no salvation. He explains the post on Feb. 14 of his Facebook page Alfadi.cira, which he calls " Devastating Dilemma". Using Q 9:103, he explains that if Muhammad purify and sanctify muslims; then he is "god" or that verse no longer applies because Muhammad is dead.
In this episode Al Fadi and Sam Shamoun discuss passages from the Quran and other quranic sources that is telling muslims to pray to Mohammad for the forgiveness of their sins. By doing that Muhammad made himself the muslims saviour and make them believe that they do not need Jesus as a saviour. Not to mention that by that claim he is making himself equal to God who forgives sin.
Sam and Al Fadi continue to discuss the dilemma of who God is praying to in Islam; when muslims pray five times a day saying;"Sala Allah Alayhi wa sallam". Is God praying to Mohammad or to himself? If Allah is invoking Mohammad; does that mean that Allah is equal to Mohammad? That is a massive dilemma.
To worship; Dua'a; supplication are the same thing. Al Fadi and Sam Shamoun continue to discuss what it means that God worships. It could mean that he is praying to himself, praying to other Gods, or He is more than one person. Listen to this episode to learn more.
Sam Shamoun with Al Fadi answer the muslim objection: if jesus is God why the is he praying to the Father? 1. The three eternal persons of the one triune God has fellowship with one another, and prayer is a form of fellowship (John 17: 5,24). 2. Jesus became flesh(man), he became the perfect man who loved, obeyed, and worshiped God( John 1:14, 6:38). 3. Psalm 102: 25-27, Hebrews 1: 8-12) shows that the Father also glorify and praises the son.
Muslims believe that the Quran we have today is an exact replica of the Quran in the time of Muhammad (7th century),and it is completely preserved in heaven. Al Fadi says that we do not have a complete 7th century Quran that matches today's 1924 edition of the Quran. He adds that today's Quran was standardised in 1924(Cairo edition),and It was based on oral transmission and not on any manuscripts.
The Quran(4:71) appears to attack the false trinity (God,Jesus,and Mary). It also affirms that Jesus is God's word and a Sprit of God, which makes him equal to God and divine. Listen to Al Fadi as he gives explanation from both the Quran and the Bible to prove that.
The Quran says that Christian believe that Allah(God) is one third of three members(Q 5: 73-75); Who are these three according to the Quran? What do Bible believing Christians and the Bible say what the trinity is? Do Christians believe in more than one God? Does the Quran make a sound argument when it accuses the Christian of worshiping three Gods? listen as Al Fadi explains.
Muslims attack the doctrine of the trinity saying that christians worship three gods. They also say that the term trinity is never mentioned in the bible. Al Fadi explains that the muslim doctrine of tawheed does not mean one,but means to unify into one. Also the word tawheed is not mentioned in the Quran. Listen to the episode to learn more.
Al Fadi explains the meaning of Christmas; that it is the birth of Christ who came to the world as a baby. God in the flesh. He fullfilled old testament prophecies and died on the cross to save us from our sin. He took our punishment to satisfy God's justice. And if we believe in him we are saved and have eternal life. But if we don't believe we are under God's judgment and wrath(John 3:16-18).
