Hey guys, I found the following to be quite interesting, they have some great links to JW literature, maybe this will help the lurkers to see that the house to house
preaching waste of time, is pretty redundant as many religious people are now wise to the fallacy of the Borg. What to you guys think?
A MUSLIM GUIDE TO COUNTERING JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES The greatest menace to Muslim homes in the West
by Malik Ali
As a Muslim who lives in a Western country, I have come to realise that the greatest harassment comes from a Christian sect that numbers a mere 6-7 million; the Jehovah's Witnesses. The Muslims come across them so often for the very factor that they come knocking on their doors. The group was born in the U.S.A. (Like almost every other cult you might come across) and every weekend they come armed with their contrived New World Translation Bible and their Awake, Watchtower magazines; they'll come pounding on your doors. Yes, the lady and the gentleman who come dressed in business suits. No their not trying to sell you products, but "simply" to destroy your Iman in exchange for their humorous "The world is coming to an end" cult.
Many Muslims are aware of their failed past prophecies; but it's usually your word against theirs. The purpose of this page is to expose these cultist using their own tools. The following are scanned Photostats of the past magazines of Awake and the Watchtower. Articles that these cultists dread if any one was to come across; yet over the past decades they have been handing them out door to door, country to country. The Jehovah's Witnesses view the Islamic faith as satanic, they have written anti-Islamic materials and even travel to Muslim countries to try and witness (their euphemism for convert) to our brethren. Muslims have to understand that Christianity is not a monolithic rock, it comprises of innumerable sects that differ on almost every theological aspect of the Christian faith, and to defend yourselves against it you have to understand the nature of these offspring's. it is pointless arguing with a Jehovah's Witness that the Bible says this and says that. Trying to bring up contradictions, the humanity of Jesus (incidentally, they don't believe Jesus is God, but still acknowledge his divine sonship), etc. Their faith seems to belong in a man made organisation, the Watchtower in New York. They'll vehemently deny this; but ask them where all their magazines, Bibles, commentries, religious books and guides are printed. Their are many former Jehovah's Witnesses that have entered the fold of Islam (ironically, it starts from them having visited a Muslim home in order to witness). Although many are trained not to listen, you as a believer can only do your best, and leave the rest to Allah (swt). This page is meant mainly as a defense for Muslims, and not necessarily Dawah to them.
I recommend for Muslims who regularly come into contact with Jehovah's Witnesses, to print out the scanned Photostat articles following from the links below. Trust me, once you've shown them this. They'll give you a pathetic defense and stand their pretending their shocked, and most of them will never come to your houses again. It's difficult for someone to swallow their own past failures that now go against their dogma.
STEP BY STEP, WE BEGIN
STEP 1.The book of Deuteronomy 18:20-22 sets a standard on how to judge if a Prophet is from God.
And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Well, it's simple. This is a criteria that Muslims can also agree to, if a Prophet is from God, any Prophecy he makes should eventuate as claimed. This would be the sole ultimate proof of the Prophets genuineness. If the prophecies don't come to pass, then the so-called Prophet is a false Prophet. And hence he is not being guided by God at all, we shall not be afraid (respect) of them, let alone of what they teach. As you'll see, the Jehovah's Witnesses headquarters (the Watchtower in Brooklyn, New York) claims to be a body of Prophets as those sent to the peoples of the Biblical era.
WHO GUIDES THE WATCHTOWER SOCIETY? Just incase they tell you they've always relied on human wisdom (or lack of it). You must show them that the Watchtower claims to be a Prophet of Jehovah (God). If they don't acknowledge it, then it is really pointless exposing to them the failed prophecy articles coming up. But they usually will confirm that the Watchtower organisation is indeed "inspired and guided" by God almighty.
WHAT DO THE WATCHTOWER MAGAZINES GLEAM WITH? "the scriptural and prophetic truths"
WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO HUMANITY IN 1918? Take one big guess
WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO HUMANITY IN 1925
AND WHICH PROPHETS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE RESURRECTED? Oops, I think our calculations were wrong
WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN IN 1975? and it wasn't Muhammad Ali's boxing victory against Joe Frazier
LETTING THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG? Who makes false prophecies?
You can now see the false nature of the Jehovah's Witnesses. According to the criteria set by God to Moses, the Jehovah's Witnesses are a false body. Not withstanding the religious factor, on a legal and material basis, they have duped thousands into doing ludicrous things prior to these expected prophecies; such as selling their property and cars at ridiculous cheap rates. After all, your not going to need your BMW, Benz and mansion in the hereafter.
But there's more, the same organisation that claims God guides and the Holy Spirit inspires their Awake and Watchtower magazines. Published an article in 1957, entitled "50 000 Errors in the Bible" . Print the 2 pages out. Let the Jehovah's Witness read it, and their initial shock will subside and they'll most likely say (once the Holy Ghost has "inspired" him or her) "The article says most of the 50 000 errors have been corrected" (in their New World Translation.) Indeed that is what the article reads, but wait!
Ask them "If most of the errors have been corrected, how many remain; 5 000, 500, 50. Or even if 50 errors remained. Would you attribute those 50 errors to God"They'll look shocked, scanning their eyes through the article. After some weak ums and buts, they'll usually come to two points in the end.
This is what you can likely expect; they'll ask you if they can take the article or the publication date in order to go to their
past archives and verify if its genuine. Be generous, and allow them to do so.
The next thing they'll say is that they will come with a senior member of their Kingdom Hall (Church) to discuss this issue. In other words they won't come again. And if you had given them the extract, without question they will not come again, (Probably thinking that it's the only copy you have). In all my encounters with them, they have never come back. Maybe you could be lucky..
For some reason, it's like they're programmed to come up with the same responses and postures. That's why I've found them to be very predictable; and you'll most likely too.
THE NAME JEHOVAH
In regards to the Name Jehovah, you can read Sheikh Ahmed Deedats book What is his name?. In the chapter under the heading Who is Jehovah?. An excellent essay I have come across is by Gerald Sigal,
THE WATCHTOWER SOCIETY AND THE NAME OF GOD located at the Jews for Judaism site. Yep, you're not alone, even our cousins are wary of these cultists. Another great essay by the same author has written
THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES? The thesis is about how Jehovah's Witnesses attempt to cover up their failed prophecies.
Both the essays above are brief and is a must read.
I have written up a page giving the names of Jehovah in many languages of the world. You'll be shocked, no the English speaking cultists have not settled for one name. They've allowed many nations and cultures around the world to distort the supposed name of God into various stylish names. Get this, the Japanese Jehovah's Witnesses pronounce the "divine name" as Ehoba. Well I guess the cult can claim to cater for all cultural tastes. Despite the fact that the Semitic peoples (Jews and Arabs) have always placed an emphasis on correct vocal pronunciation of any name or concept; especially the name of God Almighty.
STORIES OF CONVERTS
FROM THE WATCHTOWER TO THE MINARETA story of a Jehovah's Witness who became a Muslim. Out of all the conversion stories I've ever read, this one has to be the most humorous of all.
