STEP 1: J FOR JESUS (J.A.M.M)
Question to Christian: Do you believe that Jesus is God? Or that Jesus was sent by God?
If they answer "sent by God" you can tell them that there is only one religion today that says he was sent by God, and that is ISLAM! They will be shocked. (Tell them that Christianity today believes Christ WAS God, IE. Trinity, the Father, son and holy ghost, so their belief is closer to Islam than Christianity). 

* Note: There is a 3rd option that they could say, that Jesus(pbuh) was both SENT by God, AND God! Yes, very confusing indeed! If they say this, you need to make sure you say it back to them so they can how ridiculous that statement is. God sending himself?! I thought he was the Son? Who sent who? Who was in Heaven when "God" was on Earth? Did God die when Jesus(pbuh) died?

No Muslim can be a Muslim unless he believes in Jesus Christ.

Islam also says  that Jesus was The Messiah, he was born to a virgin-mother - Mary... "The Messiah, son of Mary, was no other than a messenger; messengers before him had indeed passed away." [Quran 5:75]

And he did many miracles 
with the power of God. "...with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him..." [Bible Acts 2:22]

"And We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear miracles" [Quran 2:87]

NOTE: NO WHERE in the Bible does Jesus(pbuh) ever say himself that he is God, or that he told people to worship him. (The Christian will never be able to give you a direct single verse to back up his claim, but rather obscure verses said by third party persons, and out of context.)

"I don’t seek my own will but the will of the one who sent me." [Bible John 5:30]

Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. [Bible John 7:16]

"For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak." [Bible John 12:49]

"I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him." [Bible John 8:26]

"The word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. [Bible John 14:24]

"The crowds answered, This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee." [Bible Matthew 21:11]

"After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world." [Bible John 6:14]

"Then they turned again to the blind man, What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened. The man replied, He is a prophet." [Bible John 9:17]

He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet." [Quran 19:30,]

"Indeed, they are unbelievers who say, ‘God is the Messiah, the son of Mary.’" [Quran 5:72]

"Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs." [Quran 4:171]

Christian says they accept Jesus(pbuh) was sent by God BUT was also the (Begotten) SON OF GOD.
God in the Bible has sons by the tons! It's the language. The Son Of God doesn't mean what the Christians literally think it means and had a different meaning in the older times. The "Son Of God" is a title of honor for a person that worships God, similar to the term "Servant of God" as in Islam.
 
There seems to be only two places in the Bible where Jesus (pbuh) refers to himself as "son of God." They are in John chapters 5 and 11. Hastings in "The dictionary of the Bible" says: "Whether Jesus used it of himself is doubtful." Regardless, we have already seen what is meant by this innocent title.

However, Jesus is referred to as the "son of Man" 81 times in the books of the Bible and in the language of the Jews, that is how you say "I am a human being!"

"It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be", and it is." [Quran 19:35]

The Lords Prayer: "Pray then like this: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." [Bible Matthew 6:9-13]

Many people are called sons of God in the Bible. For example, Adam was called the son of God (Luke  3:38) and so was David (2 Samuel 7:14). Jesus himself, in the Bible said “Blessed are the 
peacemakers for they shall be called Sons of God.” (Matthew 5:9) In the Bible, lots of good  people are called Sons of God, and from what Jesus said in The Bible, any good person is a ‘son of God.’ 

The use of the term "Son of God" when describing normal human beings was not at all an uncommon practice among Jesus' people. It was just the nature of the language and not how people interpret it in today's modern world.

"I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me (King David), Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee." [Bible Psalms 2:7]

"For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." [Bible Romans 8:14]

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." [Bible Matthew 5:9]

Adam is the son of God: "Adam, which was the son of God." [Bible Luke 3:38]

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”. [Bible John 10:33] (the word 'gods' doesn't mean GOD, but meant saintly person)

"I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.." [Bible Psalms 82:6]

"My mother and my brothers are these which hear the word of God, and do it." [Bible Luke 8:21]

Solomon is God's son: "He shall build an house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son": [Bible 2 Samuel 7:13-14]

"The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation. That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son. And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son. There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant." [Qur'an 19:90]

"Indeed, they are unbelievers who say, ‘God is the Messiah, the son of Mary.’" [Quran 5:72]

"It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be", and it is." [Quran 19:35]
STEP 2: A FOR ALMIGHTY GOD (J.A.M.M)
Christian Claims Jesus(pbuh) IS God
Proof that Jesus (PBUH) is Not God (using the Bible and Logic)

Start with the Attributes of God and make sure the Christian agrees before you move on; That God is ‘All-Mighty’, ‘All Knowing’, Eternal, Independent. Then apply these attributes to Jesus and see if he qualifies.

God is All-Knowing... Jesus (PBUH) was not.
"Speaking of the last day Jesus said ‘But of That Day or That Hour knows no man, neither the angels, nor the son, but only the father" [Bible Mark 13:32]

God is All-Mighty… Jesus (PBUH) was not.
"I can do nothing on my own authority; as I hear, I judge, and my judgement is just, because I seek not my own will, but the will of Him who sent me" [The Bible John 5:30)]

God doesn’t pray to anyone … Jesus (PBUH) did :
‘And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face (sujud) and prayed.’ (Bible Matt 26:39) 

Note that: In the Bible Jesus never ever said ‘I am God, worship me’. The Christian will never be able to show you this, but rather point to obscure and unclear verses to make the allegation instead.

Conclusion, Jesus (pbuh) was NOT God, but was sent by God as a Messenger, just like the Quran states. "Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah.." [Quran 4.171]

Deuteronomy 6:4 — Hear, O Israel: The LORD thy God is one LORD.

Deuteronomy32:39 — See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me.

Psalm 86:10 — For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.

1 Kings 8:60 — That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else.

Galatians 3:20 — Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

1 Timothy 2:5 — For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 4:6 — One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Muslim: Can we agree that God is All Knowing, Almighty, He sees everything, he hears everything, he has no beginning, nor an end, is neither male or female, and is perfect in his majesty, love and beauty? Well, I'm afraid Jesus(pbuh) wasn't like that. He didn't know when the hour is "...no one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." [Bible Matthew 24.36], that shows he didn't have all knowledge.

Also, Jesus(pbuh) used to pray ("..he fell with his face to the ground and prayed.. [Bible Matthew 26.39] and according to the Oxford Dictionary the definition of 'prayer' is "A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God". I'm sure we can agree that Almighty God doesn't ask anyone for help and Jesus(pbuh) was crying out to God for help in various places, so it's clear that he isn't God. 

According to John 5:37, Jesus said that no one had ever seen God at anytime or ever heard his voice. And yet people did see Jesus, which proves that Jesus cannot be God. 

"And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form." [Bible John 5:37-38]

"God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind." [Bible Numbers 23:19]

"For I am God, and not man." [Bible Hosea 11:9]

"No man hath seen God at any time." [Bible John 1:18]

"Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live." [Bible Exodus 33:20]

"Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God.." [Bible Matthew 19:16]
 
Jesus(pbuh) had no power of his own: "Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know." [Bible Acts 2:22]

"The crowds answered, This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee." [Bible Matthew 21:11]

"After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world." [Bible John 6:14]

If Jesus was God,then why did he ask for GOD's forgiveness? "And Jesus said: FATHER, forgive them, for they know not what they do." [Bible Luke 23:34]

Jesus(pbuh) was given authority and did now own it: "Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God." [Bible John 13:3]

Jesus said he has a God: 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.' [Bible John 20:17]

He said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son. She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?" He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us': It is a matter (so) decreed."  [Quran 19:19]

Christian Claims Jesus(pbuh) IS God Because He Did Miracles
Moses(pbuh) did miracles, such as parting the red sea and turning his staff into a snake, but that doesn't mean he was God. In fact, God gave Jesus(pbuh) and many other prophets miracles as proof from being from God.

"Then Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the LORD opened up a path through the water with a strong east wind." [Exodus 14:21]


The Christian will claim he is God because he was born miraculously without a Father.

You should reply that Adam was born without a father and without mother, so that is a greater miracle, however it doesn't make him God! God is showing that he has power over all things.

"The example of Jesus, as far as GOD is concerned, is the same as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, "Be," and he was." [Quran 3:59]

Jesus(pbuh) said that many false miracles will be done by people and you should not be fooled by them: 

“"For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” [Bible Matthew 24:24]

[Bible Acts 2:22]

The Quran confirms that Jesus(pbuh) was given miracles from God: "And We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear miracles." [Quran 2:87]

God tells us in the Quran that Jesus(pbuh) could speak when he was in the cradle! "He shall speak to people while still in the cradle, and in manhood, and he shall be from the righteous."[Quran 3:46]

God mentions a miracle given to none other in the Quran but Jesus, one which is quite parallel to how God himself created Adam. This miracle was one which none can argue its greatness. God mentions in the Quran that Jesus says:  "I create for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with God’s permission." [Quran 3:49] 

The Quran also mentions Jesus to a have healed the blind and lepers.  

"I also heal the blind and the leper." [Quran 3:49]

"…and I bring to life the dead, by the permission of God." [Quran 3:49]

"And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], 'Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah . And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead - by permission of Allah . And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers." [Quran 3:49]

"After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world." [Bible John 6:14]

Jesus(pbuh) was given authority and did not own it: 

"Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God." [Bible John 13:3]

Jesus(pbuh) stating that he can't do anything of his own will:

“I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me. [Bible John 5:30]

"I drive out demons by the finger of God..." [Bible Luke 11:20]

"The crowds answered, This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee." [Bible Matthew 21:11]

Jesus said he has a God: '

I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.' [Bible John 20:17]

He said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son. She(Mary, pbuh) said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?" He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us': It is a matter (so) decreed."  [Quran 19:19]

Question to Christian: If Jesus is God AND the Father is God, are they Equal?
If the Christian says Jesus is also God, along with the Father, then ask them are they equal? They are likely to say yes and when they do, you can show them verses that prove otherwise.

Jesus cannot be God if God is greater than him. The Christian belief that the Father and son are equal is in direct contrast to the clear words from Jesus.

"The Father is greater than I." [Bible John 14:28]

"My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all." [Bible John 10:29]

"Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him." [Bible John 13:16]

"I will answer thee, that God is greater than man. [Bible Job 33:12]

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." [Bible Matthew 24.36]

"I cannot do anything of myself..." [Bible John 5:30]

"Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst.." [Bible Acts 2:22]

"O you men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a MAN approved of God among you..." [Bible Acts 2:22]
Question to Christian: Does God PRAY to anyone? 

Question to Christian: WHO did Jesus pray to?
God is not in need of anyone or anything. God does not pray nor ask anyone for help. It is all of his creation that praises God and seeks His help. 

Jesus(pbuh) used to pray to Almighty God and asked him for his help continuously, begging, with cries and tears.

Ask the Christian if they know what the definition of prayer is. As per the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of prayer is: "A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or another deity."

Even a child would tell you that God does not pray to anyone, nor ask anyone for help. Here we will discover that Jesus(pbuh) to use pray and seek the help of God!

In this verse, Jesus(pbuh) wants to be saved from pain, suffering and death, which is referred by the cup... "And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” [Bible Matthew 26:39]

Why is Jesus(pbuh) crying out to God for help? Does God cry out to himself? "About three o'clock Jesus cried out in a loud voice, 'Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?' which means, "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?" [Bible Matthew 27:46]

"During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission." [Bible Hebrews 5:7]

All the messengers & prophets of God put their head on the ground and prayed:

"And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped." [Exodus 34:8]

"Then Abraham fell upon his face..." [Genesis 17:17]

"..fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord GOD!" [Ezekiel 11:13]

"Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground..." [2 Chronicles 20:18]

Question to Christian: Do you know Jesus claimed himself to be a prophet?
Most Christians don't know that there are multiple verses in the Bible where Jesus(pbuh) is referred to as a Prophet! So if he is a prophet he cannot be God! End of discussion, case closed. Therefore Jesus(pbuh) is NOT God.

Christian Claims God Is A Trinity, that is to say that JESUS is God, the FATHER is God, and the HOLY SPIRIT is God, but they are not three, but really all one.
Many modern day Christians now believe that God is three distinct persons in one "God head". That is to say Jesus is God, the Father is God and the Holy Spirit is God, but they are not three but one. 

This is absolutely irrational and nonsense as you'll soon see.

99% of Christians don't really understand this and are just taught this growing up. They will not be able to prove it rationally or from the Bible, and discussions often resort to emotional beliefs.

God is very clear on who He is in the Old Testament ("Hear, O Israel: The Lord God, the Lord is One." Mark 12.29), and He is not the author of confusion as the Bible. 

Once you start asking them questions about this you'll soon find them getting confused and calling it a mystery when they fail to give a satisfactory rational answer based on biblical evidence. 

The word ‘Trinity’ is not mentioned in the Bible.

Trinity says that Jesus is also ‘God’ – If you show Jesus is not God then there is no Trinity .

Trinity was formally adopted in the year 325 C.E. with The Nicene Creed. (Therefore 325 years after Jesus left the Earth).

Muslim: I understand the Church has taught you this, but if you actually look at what Christ said you'll realise that he never said he was God, or told anyone to worship him. In fact, he told people to worship only the Father. We Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was a messenger of Almighty God, and that he was born miraculously without a father. That he did many miracles with the permission of God. He also said that someone else will come after him from the Father, and that he will glorify him.  Do you know who that was?
Christian: No
Muslim: It is Muhammad (peace be upon him). He is the only person that came after Christ that confirmed Jesus (pbuh), and Muhammad came with the exact same message, to worship only One God. We don't worship Muhammad, just as we don't worship Jesus or any other messenger. But we love them and respect them and follow them.

Questions to ask the Christian about the Trinity, to make them stumble. The purpose is to help them realize that what they believe is not the truth and not in the Bible.

Christ Himself warned His followers: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name . . . and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).

Q: Where is the Trinity mentioned in the Bible?

Q: Show me a verse from the Bible where Jesus(pbuh) himself says that he is God, or he says worship me?

Q: Show me a verse from the Bible where God is three in one? (They will never be able to find one, and if they do provide something it will be obscure verses stretched so far with their imagination that they will look desperate, and you'll easily be able to refute it insh'Allah)

Q: When did the doctrine of the Trinity come about? 
A. It came three centuries after Christ, after a meeting. The debate was to decide the nature of Christ and if he was divine or not. There were opposing views and in the end, they voted that Christ was divine and God. (You only have a debate when you are not sure about something. Jesus never said he was God, nor did he tell anyone to worship him!) Source: http://www.gotquestions.org/council-of-Nicea.html


STEP 3: MIRACLES OF QURAN (J.A.M.M)
Present Miracles Of Quran To Christian
Firstly tell them that The Book is 1400 hundred years old and is unchanged. This fact is accepted by many scholars of various backgrounds (non-Muslims). 

Non–Muslim Scholars may not like what it says and obviously they don’t believe that it’s from God, otherwise they would be Muslims; but they do agree that it has not changed.

There is only ONE version of The Quran! 

You can go to any country around the World and its the exact same. If you were to put every Quran, Bible (and every other book) on Earth into the Sea, it is only the Quran that would come back within minutes because it has been memorized by millions of Muslims all around the world, young and old, from the start to the end, and we're talking about 600 pages, in the right order, with the right pronunciation sounds! 

"This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion." [Quran 5:3]

Scientific Facts in the Quran:

The Quran contains many Scientific Facts [Scientifically accurate statements] even though the book is 1400 hundred years old.
For example:

EMBRYOLOGY

[A description of how a baby forms inside the womb of a mother is accurately described] (Qur'an translated Surah 23 Verses 12-14)  
Not our opinion but the opinion of Professor Keith Moore. See ‘YouTube’... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws9LdtuoePk

[Professor Keith Moore is Professor of Anatomy specializing in Embryology at The University of Toronto in Canada. He is highly acclaimed and has won many international Prizes for his work on embryology.]
UNIVERSE

How The Universe Started with an initial mass [lump] which then separated to form the Universe. Today we call this ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (Quran translated Surah 21 Verse 30)

THE EXPANDING UNIVERSE

(Quran translated Surah 51 Verse 47). The Quran correctly mentions that the Universe is expanding it. Until very recently ‘The Steady State model’ was accepted which says that the Universe is constant and has always been like that.

CONSTRUCTION OF MOUNTAINS

The Quran correctly describes two characteristics of mountains.
1. They have deep roots.
2. They reduce the earth surface from shaking.  (Quran translated Surah 78 Verse 7, Surah 21 Verse 31).  Geologists accept the above statements. 

PAIN RECEPTIONS FOR BURNING IN THE SKIN]

Sensors for heat are in the skin. Therefore somebody who has a complete loss of their skin is unable to feel the pain of burning. (Quran Surah 4 Verse 56)
 
HOW GRAVITY (OR MASS) WORKS

(Quran translated Surah 36 Verse 40).

SUN & MOON ARE SWIMMING IN ORBITS 

Therefore two things are mentioned: 
1) Swimming.
2) Circular or elliptical movements.

To swim would require a medium or substance. We NOW know that ‘empty’ space is filled with Higgs-Boson particles. Just as water is displaced by a swimmer, similarly space appears to be displaced by the presence of stars etc. (celestial bodies). So swimming is really a very accurate description of space; this is something that was discovered very recently. The movement of the stars and the planets is indeed circular/elliptical.

THE WATER CYCLE

The first clear formulation of the water cycle must be attributed to Bernard Palissy in 1580 CE. He claimed that underground water came from rainwater infiltrating into the soil. This theory was confirmed by E. Mariotte and P. Perrault in the 17th century CE.
In the following passages from the Quran, there is no trace of the mistaken ideas that were current at the time of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh):

(Qur’an translated Surah 7 Verse 57). This is obvious to us now, but was not known at the time of The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Also see: [Quran 50:9-11] , [Quran 23: 18-19], [Quran 15:22], [Quran 30:48], [Quran 7:57], [Quran 39:21], [Quran 36:34], [Quran 56: 68-70]

GIVEN TO AN UNLETTERED PROPHET

The Book was given to a man (The Prophet Muhammad PBUH) who could neither read nor write. This is mentioned in the Quran and his enemies did not accuse him of lying. No one ever saw him read or write!

"Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them." [Quran 7:157 ]
HAS REMAINED UNCHANGED

The book has remained unchanged for 1400 years - See for yourself in the British Library! http://britishlibrary.typepad.co.uk/asian-and-african/2016/04/the-british-librarys-oldest-quran-manuscript-now-online.html

Oldest Quran fragments found at Birmingham University new piece in the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jul/22/oldest-quran-fragments-found-at-birmingham-university

“It is We who have sent down the Dhikr (Quran) and surely We will preserve it” [Quran 15:9]

THE CHALLENGE

God challenges mankind to produce one Surah (chapter) like it. He says that it can NEVER be done.  “And if you are in doubt about what we have sent down upon our servant then produce a chapter like it ...” [Quran 2:23]

From a human being this would be a very arrogant and impossible statement. Only God who is outside our time frame could say such a statement and remain true. 

“This Quran is not such as can be produced by other than Allah, on the contrary it is a confirmation of (revelations) that were sent before it, and a full explanation of the book, wherein there is not doubt from the Lord of the worlds”. [Quran 10:37]

NO CONTRADICTIONS

There is not a single contradiction in The Quran even though is was revealed over a 23 year period a little bit of time. It is also important to remember that the Quran was revealed according to situation, circumstance and sometimes in answer to questions that were asked.

Just as miraculous is the fact that even though The Quran mentions many diverse subjects and is 1400 years old (on Earth) yet it contains no errors says Professor Jeffrey Lang, -Prof of Mathematics at The University of Kansas - USA.

“Don’t they ponder over the Quran, had it been from anyone besides Allah, they would surely have found therein many contradictions” [Quran 4:82)]

THE LARGEST PRACTICED & FASTEST GROWING RELIGION

It has resulted in the largest following in the world; 1.7 billion people. The Quran (with the Sunnah) has produced The Religion with largest following 1.8 billion people. Today it is also the fastest growing religion. [Guinness book of records 2005].

CHANGES PEOPLES' LIVES

Its words have the effect of changing people’s lives forever. Grown men are brought down to tears when they hear its because they know it is the truth from God; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcqFWr6h4qc

EASY TO MEMORIZE

Millions have memorized the whole Quran off by heart even though most of the followers are not Arabic speaking!
“…made easy to remember” (Quran 44:58)
 
NO CROOKEDNESS

By any measurement The Quran sets the highest of moral standards and it contains nothing which could be regarded as bad. “An Arabic Quran without any crookedness” [Quran 39:28] 

QURAN SAYS THAT IT IS FROM GOD

"[This is] the revelation of the Book about which there is no doubt from the Lord of the Worlds." [Quran 21:2]

“This Quran is not such as can be produced by other than Allah, on the contrary it is a confirmation of (revelations) that were sent before it, and a full explanation of the book, wherein there is not doubt from the Lord of the worlds”. (10:37)

COMPLETE GUIDANCE FOR MANKIND

“This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed my favours upon you and  chosen Islam as your Deen (Way of Life)” [Quran 5:3]

“Lo! this Qur’an guides to that which is most upright”. (17:9)

“...a guidance for mankind and clear evidence of guidance and discrimination (between wrong)”. (2:185).


STEP 4: MUHAMMAD THE FINAL PROPHET (J.A.M.M)
Convey Muhammad(pbuh) came after Jesus(pbuh) and was the final Prophet of God.
Jesus Christ said that one will come after him and that he will glorify him. There is only one person in history after Christ that confirmed him and also said he was sent from the same God, and that is Muhammad(peace be upon him).

“It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” [Bible John 16:7] 

"There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can't bear it now. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. [Bible John 16:12]

How do we know that this expression spirit of truth refers on prophet? In biblical language 'spirit of falsehood' is false prophet, and 'spirit of truth' is true prophet.

[Evidence] 

"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world." [Bible 1 John 4:1-6]

This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. 

Who else fits the picture, if not Muhammad (peace be upon him)?

"O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad." [Quran 61:6] (The name Ahmad and Mohammed come from the same Arabic root and in essence are the same name.)

If Muhammad (pbuh) made things up, why would he say this?! 

"And if he (Muhammad SAW) had forged a false saying concerning Us (Allah), We surely should have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might), And then certainly should have cut off his life artery (Aorta), And none of you could withhold Us from (punishing) him." [Quran, Surah Al-Haqqah:44-47] (God is saying that if Muhammad (pbuh) made things up about Allah, He would have ended his life.)

Muslim: Did you know that Jesus (peace be upon him), stated in the Bible that there will be someone to come after him, who will be sent by God, will confirm him and convey the truth. [Bible John 16:12]?

Christian: No, I didn't know that, who is it?

Muslim: Yes, it is Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Christian: Oh really?

Muslim: Yes. There is no other religion today that makes it an article of faith to accept Jesus Christ, other than Islam. No Muslim can be a Muslim if they don't accept Jesus(pbuh) as a prophet of God. Also, Muhammad (peace be upon him) confirmed that Jesus Christ came before him.

Christian: When did Muhammad (pbuh) come?

Muslim: He came about 600 years after Jesus Christ. Almightly God gave many miracles to his prophets as proof. Moses (pbuh) was in an era of magic, and God gave him any miracles that out did the magic at the time, such as turning his staff into a snake, parting the read sea. At the time of Jesus, it was an era of medicine, and Jesus (pbuh) healed people, like the blind, the leaper, and he raised the dead. While we weren't around to witness these we believe in them.

Christian: Cool

Muslim: Do you know what the miracle that was given to Muhammad is? It's something you can actually see for yourself today!

Christian: No..

Muslim: Yeah, it's the Quran! [Miracles of Quran as mentioned earlier]. It is God (Allah) that testified in the Quran, that Muhammad (pbuh) is His Prophet and Messenger.

“O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) making (things) clear unto you, after a break in (the series of) Messengers, lest you say: “There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner.” But now has come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And Allah is Able to do all things." [Quran, Surah Al-Maida:19]

Muhammad was born and raised in Mecca. When he was nearly 40, he used to spend many hours alone in prayer and speculating over the aspects of creation. He was concerned with the "ignorance of divine guidance", social unrest, injustice, widespread discrimination (particularly against women), fighting among tribes and abuse of tribal authorities prevalent in pre-Islamic Arabia. The moral degeneration of his fellow people, and his own quest for a true religion further lent fuel to this, with the result that he now began to withdraw periodically to a cave named Mount Hira, three miles north of Mecca, for contemplation and reflection. It was here he was to receive first divine revelation from Almighty God (by the Angel Gabriel).

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." John 16:17

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come." John 16:13

"I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever." [Bible John 14:16]

"Say, I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord - let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone." [Quran 18:110]

"Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered." [Quran 3:84]

"It is no less than inspiration sent down to him: He was taught by one Mighty in Power." [Quran 53:4-9]

“Verily, this is the Word (this Quran brought by) an honourable messenger (Gabriel), from God to the Prophet Muhammad. Owner of power, and high rank with (God, the Lord of the Throne). Obeyed (by the angels), trustworthy there in the heavens.”Quran 81:19-21

“...Gabriel - for he brings down the (revelation) to your heart by God’s will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings to those who believe”. [Quran 2:87]

“Do not exaggerate about me(Muhammad) as was exaggerated about ‘Jesus' Say: the slave of Allah and His Messenger.” [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6830.]

"Therefor warn (men, O Muhammad). By the grace of Allah thou art neither soothsayer nor madman." [Quran 52:29]

Hart's first book was The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History (1978), which has sold more than 500,000 copies and been translated into 15 languages. The #1 (first) person on Hart's list was Muhammad, chosen over Jesus or Moses. Hart attributes this to the fact that Muhammad was "supremely successful" in both the religious and secular realms. He also accredits Muhammad for his role in the development of Islam, far more influential than Jesus' contribution to the development of Christianity. Hart claims that St. Paul was more pivotal than Jesus to the growth of Christianity.

"Prophet Muhammad Honored By the U.S. Supreme Court As One Of The Greatest Lawgivers Of The World In 1935"

Here are some of the Prophet’s notable contributions:

He taught that there is one God for all mankind.

He taught Muslims to believe in all of the prophets.

As the Prophet established a peace sanctuary called Madinah after his migration from Makkah, he negotiated treaties with the Jews and the pagans of Madinah. Muslims consider these treaties to be the first written surviving constitution in the world. The constitution guaranteed freedom of religion, self-governance, and legal autonomy in all matters. It called for the common defense of Madinah, and declared the Jews, pagans, and Muslims of that treaty to be one nation, or “one Ummah.”

He prohibited hunting and the cutting of trees in the peace sanctuary of Madinah.

He declared killing non-combatants to be illegal, placed severe restrictions on how warfare could be conducted, and even paid compensation for the killing of some dogs by one of his commanders.

The Prophet’s teachings include the following:

Moral behavior: personal cleanliness; emphasis on preservation and nourishment of all life forms, including plants and animals; rituals and spirituality of prayers; fasting and charity; righteous conduct and good deeds; and rights of parents, children, spouses, and neighbors.

Interpersonal relations: teaching to enhance human relations and to avoid breaking relationships; encouraging mutual consultation in all affairs; prohibiting bigotry and racism; and emphasizing kindness and hospitality toward others, especially the weak and the poor.

Financial guidelines: encouraging charity, rights of the poor, respect for workers, and rejection of exploitation; and circulation of wealth among all classes.

Personal rules and laws regarding privacy, gender relations, marriage, divorce, and inheritance.

FINAL STEP: INVITE TO ISLAM
"The Close"
If the Christian has agreed to all your points above, invite them to Islam and to become a Muslim by saying the 'Shahada' (declaration of faith) in English, and then Arabic. (If they didn't agree you need to go back up, answer any objections, and progress back to here.)

Don't be afraid to invite them to Islam. Just progress naturally and pose the question. Most people have never been invited, so they may jump at the chance!

Muslim: So let's quickly recap: (these are the six pillar of faith, plus one extra about Jesus (pbuh)

1. Do you believe that there is only One God? [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

2. Do you agree that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet of God, who was born miraculously, did many miracles with the permission of God, but was not God, nor his literal son? [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

3. Do you accept Muhammad (pbuh) as a Prophet of God and his Messenger, who was just a man like many messengers that came before, just like Jesus (pbuh)? [Wait for them to answer yes.]

4. Do you believe in the unseen, like the Angels, who are another creation of God that we've been told about? [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

5. Do you believe in the divine books that God has sent through the ages? (ie. the Toral, Psalms, Injeel... however while we accept all the books, they aren't in the same form today and have been altered or lost. God knows best. PS. The Quran is the exception as it hasn't changed.) [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

6. Do you believe and accept all the prophets of God, like David, Solomon, Jacob, Abraham and all the others (peace be upon them)? [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

7. Do you believe in the day of Judgement? [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

8. Do you believe in Destiny, that God has planned things out for you and everything else? [Wait for them to answer yes.] 

Muslim: Now that you've agreed on everything we've discussed, you should repeat the following sentence and you will become a Muslim. This means you'll actually be following Jesus Christ properly, and praying to God the way God wants us to, and ONLY to God (not to Muhammad or Jesus or anyone else). Your life will change and all Muslims are guaranteed to go into Paradise, where you will live forever! You want that yes? You'll have beautiful food, beautiful partners, big mansions, true happiness, no sickness, no jealousy, no stress but only peace, and whatever your heart desires. Allah says in the Quran....

“... there will be there all that the souls could desire, all that the eyes could delight in …” (Quran 43:71)

“Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent forth (good deeds) in days past!” (Quran 69:24)

“… They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold, and they will wear green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade. They will recline therein on raised thrones. How good [is] the recompense! How beautiful a couch [is there] to recline on!” (Quran 18:31)

“...its provision is eternal and so is its shade…” (Quran 13:35)

“...and they shall have therein purified mates…” (Quran 2:25)

“...rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes...” (Quran 47:15)

“No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy, as a reward for what they used to do.” (Quran 32:17)

“Crystal-white, delicious to those who drink (thereof), free from intoxication, nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom” (Quran 37:46-47)

“They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin. But only the saying of: Peace! Peace!” (Quran 56:25-26)

“And We shall remove from their breasts any (mutual) hatred or sense of injury (which they had, if at all, in the life of this world)…” (Quran 7:43)

In fact, there is something even better. Shall I tell you what it is?

Christian: Yes please.

Muslim: It is to see the Glorious Face of Almighty God! That will be the highest climax of Heaven, to see your creator, your maker, the one who gave you life. The worst punishment for those in Hell would be that they will never get to see God. In paradise you'll also be re-united with your loved ones, and when you become a Muslim all your sins will be wiped away and forgiven! How does that sound?

Christian: Great!

Muslim: Okay, let's say this in English first so you understand.

Christian: Okay

Muslim: I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship, but Allah (God), and I bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him), is the messenger of Allah, just like Jesus Christ, Son of Mary.

Christian: (repeats the above)

Muslims: Okay, now in Arabic: “ASH-HADU ANLA ELAHA ILLA-ALLAH WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOHAMMADAN RASUL-ALLAH”. ( Listen on how to pronounce it here: https://youtu.be/GmNbJIKEeSY )
AFTER ACCEPTING ISLAM
"New Muslim Resources"
IMPORTANT! Following up with a new Muslim is VERY important!

Now that someone has taken the Shahada and entered into Islam, it is a duty upon you to continue to follow up with the new Muslim, and guide them to prayer, and other beneficial information. 

Many new Muslims can feel overwhelmed and isolated as they take on a new faith and change their life, so make them feel like help is on hand and be as comforting as you can be.

Do not overwhelm them, but you must stress that the first thing that they should start doing are the prayers.

You can also ask them if they have a local masjid in the area that they can visit and interact with, or if they have any Muslim friends or associates they can seek help and assistance from.

Below are some helpful resources you can share with them.
