This video is a humble attempt to show everyone that what Islam teaches, what the Quran says, and what Muslims do can be verified not only through its own sources (which are indeed sufficient) but also by other books considered holy by millions of people. So I ask you, do you really know what the Bible says? Do you know that it teaches that God is one and never three? Do you know it says Christmas is forbidden? Do you know it prescribes washing yourselves before you pray and to pray bowing and prostrating on the floor (like Muslims do)? Do you know it teaches that there is no original sin? Do you know the Bible teaches that Jesus was a messenger of God and not divine? I assure you it does. Take a journey with me on my path and examine Islam in the Bible.
My name is Yusha Evans. I am 27 years old and am living in College Park, MD. I was raised by my grandparents in Greenville, South Carolina in a very strict Methodist home. In my teenage years, I became very involved in the church and was studying at a small Bible college in my hometown with the intention of eventually enrolling in Bob Jones University. I was learning to read the Bible in Hebrew and Greek and was very interested in textual criticism of the Bible. It was during these years of intense Bible study that I read the Bible cover to cover a half a dozen times. In doing so, I realized there were many inconsistencies and contradictions. I realized the Bible was not the inerrant Word of God as I had always been taught. I eventually left Christianity and searched for the truth about God elsewhere.
I studied every religion from Judaism to Buddhism, Wicca to Bushido. While many religions had certain truths to them, they had major tenants or flaws I could not accept. All praise is due to God, one day I found myself talking with a young Muslim who invited me to jumuah, the Friday service and congregational prayer. When I saw the Muslims praying, bowing and prostrating with their heads on the floor, all the verses of the Bible describing the prayer of the prophets came flooding back to me. I asked for a copy of the Quran, read it from cover to cover in three days, and the rest (as they say) is history.
