Apologetics and Agape

Ahmed Deedat explains why he started his own Islamic Da’wa (Invitation) – his work of debating Christians and inviting people to Islam.

Deedat recounts the author of the book, “Izharul Haqq”, ( اظهار الحق ) “Statement of Truth”, noted that Arabs, Indians, and Persian Muslims in India (before creation of Pakistan and Bangla Desh), in the late 1800s, after missionaries began to learn Muslim languages such as Persian and Urdu (the language of Pakistan), Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, and Arabic, noted:

“Since they started learning our language, and challenging us in our mother tongue, the Muslims were forced to accept the challenge.”  “that is when we knew we had to respond.”

This demonstrates the power of learning another language in missions, in order to communicate the truth in such a way that the other culture actually really understands what we are saying.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

    I’m a big fan of learning Islamic concepts and turning it around – for example, Bi-la Kaifa and Kun Faya Kun in responding to questions about the comprehensibility of the Trinity or Incarnation.

    Dawagandists cannot dismiss the concepts since it’s their own religious statements, and citing them introduces the Muslim listeners to an entire world of difficulties, conundrums, controversies, inquisitions and doubt within classical Islam itself.
