How To Witness To A Muslim

Can a Christian (born again, spirit filled) tell a Muslim they're dying and going to hell because they do not believe in Jesus? If not, how should a Christian witness to a Muslim?

Warwick, I completely understand what you are saying when you mention that you and him could have an interesting meeting. ---Mark_V. on 12/15/10

Well,I don't think you do either. It could be interesting if he didn't avoid 3/4 of scripture. He might just think his persona would impress me. He might not enjoy the reality. I've rode bulls to completion, jumped out of Airplanes. My prophets trump his opinions.
Humility is hard when you need recognition/statusfaction for/by association world things.
Been there done that... they are last in comparison to the satisfaction of sharing/knowing/living truth. More especially with those that seek,knock,search and compare.

Trav ... John 3.16God loves the world(Kosmos) (meaning it people) not just the Jews
---alan8566_of_UK on 12/16/10

It is his, and everyone and thing in it.
I'll point out that in scripture....there are twelve nations that walk through the gates....being judged by the twelve Apostles.
Why point this out....because you've been taught/mislead that Judah/jews equal all twelve of these gates. The very fact that you do not know this fact means that eleven of the gate people are in the world around you or are you.
Revelation 21:12
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
Hmmmm.

Trav, ... On your behalf I just now phoned a local Jewish organization and was informed that this is so.

BTW you need to know I am convinced ...---Warwick on 12/15/10

See, first of all you called them because you didn't know. Not on my behalf. Which makes you false. Rather than research you would rather believe those that may not even be Judahites except by self proclamation. Wow, what a witness. You would believe those that have been "anti-Christ" for 2,000 yrs?
Ur a preacher? Yeahhh u are.

BTW, these posts are never to turn you....but to expose you...avoiding what shouldn't,wouldn't be avoided to bring the Good News/Gospel to a Lost Sheep.
---Trav on 12/16/10


Trav, please tell me what these Scriptures mean:
---Warwick on 12/15/10

They mean, that you desperately seek four verses that vaguely seem to allow you to go against Christ clear statements...all Prophets and Apostles.

They mean that you want to be the interviewer instead of addressing your scriptural problems. An ancient known diversion tactic in communication when a politician/preacher is in public hot water.
Wearing a sheep skin does not make you a sheep. Your professional danger is not just in your chosen ignorance....but, in opposing prophets...more especially Christ.
Matt 10:6/15:24, Heb 8:8,Jer 51:19,20/Deut 26:18,19/Titus 2:14/1Pet 2:9/Ex 19:5 etc.

Mark, I find it interesting to converse with Trav.
However I am also well aware that God can change him.
I would like to meet Trav face to face. I think he would be an interesting person. And I mean that sincerely.
---Warwick on 12/14/10

I intrigue you a little because, you, like myself never/ever dealt with the scriptures I've posted.
You are ironically and diametrically correct... GOD has changed me,...me allowing witnesses (prophets/Apostles) for truth....there is no going back to milk.
As far as me fooling anyone....is a judge and jury be fooled by many reliable,GOD proven and diverse witnesses? Never.
The argument/debate/doubt is never with me...but, with the scriptural witnesses I've posted/pointed too.
---Trav on 12/15/10


Trav, please tell me what these Scriptures mean:

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise " Galatians 3:28,29.

Also "Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel..." Acts 9:15

And Isaiah 49:6 "I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth."

Plus Luke 2:32 "A light for revelation to the Gentiles..."
---Warwick on 12/15/10


Trav, where I live, and those many countries I have visited 'Jew' is a description of the ancestors of those to whom God gave the promised land. Not just those whose ancestors were of the tribe of Judah. On your behalf I just now phoned a local Jewish organization and was informed that this is so.

BTW you need to know I am convinced that God's offer of forgiveness and salvation if for all peoples, Jews and Gentiles alike, just as God's word and His Word says.
---Warwick on 12/15/10


There is plenty of common ground for starting points.

They hold Jesus in high regard even though they only consider him a prophet.

There is also the common ground with father Abraham.

Trav face up to God's word:

Now you say Paul preached to Jews alone in Athens at the Areopagus! ---Warwick on 12/14/10

With u and others at some point your precepts of scripture is clear by ur post that "jews" equal all nations of Israel.
You,me others have been taught this....scripture confirms repeatedly they are not.
Point is the Nations...gentiles you speak of are in most cases these divorced,losing their marriage name, Nth House of Israel nations.
You've lost them,the churchyanity's have lost them....GOD has not. It pains all including and probably more especially "jews" and some actual judeans that GOD desires these lost ones back. Your avoidance of Heb 8:8 and verses posted for example.
---Trav on 12/15/10




Warwick, I completely understand what you are saying when you mention that you and him could have an interesting meeting. I find that talking on this blogs does get emotional some times only because we are not face to face. I'm pretty sure that in person everyone would act different. I disagree with many, but I do not take it personal unless they are trying to hunt me down like wolves. Then I know they are not defending the faith, but are more concern about themselves.
As I have said before, as long as the Truth goes out, that is all we are responsible for, God takes care of the rest, for His word never returns void, it always accomplishes what God intended it to acommplish.
---Mark_V. on 12/15/10


Mark,
He berates me for not quoting enough Scripture then ignores any pertinent Scriptures I do quote.

---Warwick on 12/14/10

Your verses were not pertinent or an answer to Christ declarations in my post.

Gal 4:4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

5 To Redeem "Them" That Were Under the Law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
(Nth house was divorced under the Law. Losing her married name of Israel. While hidden from you, it does not make her physically not there. Sth house of Judah/Benjamin still under law at time of Christ.)
---Trav on 12/15/10


Mark, I find it interesting to converse with Trav. He berates me for not quoting enough Scripture then ignores any pertinent Scriptures I do quote.

I do not imagine I will ever shift him from his nonBiblical crusade. I do hope however that other readers will see what the Biblical truth is and not be fooled by him.

However I am also well aware that God can change him.

I would like to meet Trav face to face. I think he would be an interesting person. And I mean that sincerely.
---Warwick on 12/14/10


Trav face up to God's word: "and there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28.

Now you say Paul preached to Jews alone in Athens at the Areopagus! That is not what Scripture says.

Why was Paul sent to the Gentiles by God if they were not to be saved:
But the Lord said to Ananias, "Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel..."Acts 9:15 And before the people of Israel!

As regards Gentiles see also Isaiah 42:6, 49:6 "I will also make you a light for the Gentiles." Luke 2:32 "A light for revelation to the Gentiles...."
---Warwick on 12/14/10


Warwick, I find that many here no matter the argument they will dispense of God's word as if it was not there for all to see. They make every effort to discount what it says and means in order to stay with their own believes. Trav is one of them. He wants salvation only for the Jews. And he even tells you which ones. All that died in the ovens through Hitler were not of those tribes so they deserved what they got he tells me. He even took a passage from the Old Testament which states that God wanted that judgment. The most rediculous thing I ever heart. He took from Scripture what was meant for those people then, and put it on the Jews in the ovens.
---Mark_V. on 12/14/10


God's chosen apostle to the Gentiles preaching to? Why would God have Paul as an apostle to the Gentiles if they were not to be saved.

You need to face up to what Scripture actually says.
---Warwick on 12/13/10

Gentiles= Nations. Nation= Nation/s of Israel.
Heb 8:8 = Covenant. New 2 who?
Matt 10:6/Matt 15:24...
Hmmm.
It should be a cease point for an individual acknowledging unwitnessed doctrines that don't align with all prophets or the New Covenant.
Because you don't understand (can't see)....doesn't mean the Lost sheep will not be able too. We've gotten along fine with "Actual" witnesses in scripture.

Trav God's word says "and there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28.

Reasoning from God's word it is very clear to me that Jesus died for all mankind. And commands that we preach the gospel to all peoples, Matthew 28.19, Luke 24:47, Acts 1:8. Read Acts 16:16-34-to whom was Paul, God's chosen apostle to the Gentiles preaching to? Why would God have Paul as an apostle to the Gentiles if they were not to be saved.

You need to face up to what Scripture actually says.

It is not for trav to do anything.....other than put two or more witnesses together for

Trav
Your ideas are repugnant .....

---Warwick on 12/10/10

You do love your (self) own reasoning/logic. Like pastors witnessed in scripture. Scripture is repugnant to U. You can't discuss scripturally witnessed truths....because they don't testify what you preach. Teaching falsely, excluding in ignorance,the very thing that GOD loved most. It will not change the end result. There is freedom in accepting truth.....that a fence climber denier may never know.
John 10:1
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
---Trav on 12/13/10


Trav you wrote '"Reason" can never stand before GOD's Truth,his Prophets of Scripture,Apostles in scripture revealing.'

But Scripture commands we do reason- "... Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have...." 1 Peter 3:15.

Your ideas are repugnant because God's word says all mankind was made in His image and He became man to die upon the cross, paying the price for all the sin of all mankind. But you would exclude some!

As God's word says "and There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28 As this is what God has written, it is good enough for me.

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation..to create in Himself one new man from the two. Thus making peace and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross" Eph. 2:11-16.

Always On is correct!

You will need to get educated. Since most Christians are pathetically ignorant of their faith, it's usually better they don't talk at all.

Also, remember that you are NOT responsible to get him save. You need to only talk to him about the facts of Jesus being The Christ. That takes knowledge.

Saul/Apostles spoke about facts as they were witnesses to an event.

In this case you will need to draw the line from Jesus The Prophet(Muslim) to Jesus The Messiah(Christian)

And that's it! You're done!

For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

If you feel lead to only preach the gospel to one certain people then you should do so. Just as Paul and others were called to preach to the gentiles.

Maybe you should spend more time actually preaching the gospel and less time attacking others.

Warwick 2: I sometimes believe it might be easier to bring the gospel to a Muslim then it is to discuss anything with those who pretend to be Christian and like to argue all day long for long periods of time and call you names. It is much easier to take the good news to those who have never heard of Christ. All the others have big problems because of their theological bias's. Debates are great, we can each put Scripture down and go from there, but arguments are when you give proof from Scripture and all you get is arguments with opinions and a few slanderous remarks to go with it, to make sure everyone gets it. Sort of showing their power. And all they show is evidence of their bad fruit.
---Mark_V. on 12/5/10


Warwick, your correct on all counts. We should witness to all people from all nations. What I believe we should not do is, after witnessing to others and they trample what is holy, the Word of God, we should do what Matt. 7:6 tells us. Only in those cases. Here on line it is not really witnessing, but discussing issues of Scripture with each other, but many here get angry, for many reasons and start using the attitude that you are something you are not. I hear it all the time. Trav, does not discuss anything that has to do with Gentiles having salvation. His stuck with all testament Israel, divorced, not divorced, 12 tribes, 1 tribe.

It is a true Christian's duty to always speak God's truth no matter who they're talking too. But the best way to witness to anyone is to first witness to yourself.

Always seek to show Christ power to your own self. Always stay on your face before Christ, knowing that if you think you stand beware lest you fall. Always seek to be consumned by His presence and then you will find that without saying much of anything to anyone...you will witness unto them!
---L_Will on 12/3/10


Trav you need to read more carefully. Jesus said He was called to the lost sheep of Israel. However it should be obvious I was referring to what He commands we should do-preach the gospel to all people.

Your racist attitudes have been shown on a number of occasions. If you trusted God's word you would know it says all humans are descended from Adam and Eve. Man was created in God's image, an image now marred by sin. Still we are all equal and equally deserving of having the opportunity to receive God's forgiveness via the substitutionary death of Jesus upon the cross.

If you feel certain peoples are not deserving of this chance I can do nothing about that. However that is not what God's word says.

Muslims and christians have jesus in commong. Christians belive that he is the messiah and muslims belive that Jesus is a true prophet.

To witness to a muslim one possible key can be Jesus.
If Jesus is a true prophet, that what he says about Himself must be true.

Muslims cannot have it both ways

Trav your attempt at insults are of no consequence to me. Those who know me know what I am. You don't know me but feel the need to insult and ridicule. I am sorry if I have made you feel inferior. That was not my intent.
---Warwick on 12/1/10

Ha, you're special. I'm sorry if you feel insulted. Truth is ,truth should be considered as such. I only point....that one is aware of preacher gimmicks.
Yes I'm proud to say I'm inferior to your superiorness.....in resorting to such with simple sheep.
Luke 1:16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
Hmmm. Many.
33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever, and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Thanks Mark. Your comment is true. Many people have learning or experiences which give them an edge in certain topics.

I took it that some were adamant that we should not bother witnessing to Muslims, Jews and others as it is a waste of time. This is contradicted by Scripture where we are commanded to " go and make disciples of all nations,....' Matthew 28:19. And " "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation" Mark 16:15.

Scripture convinces me we are to take every opportunity to preach the gospel to all people. Nowhere does it say don't bother with Muslims, jews and others. The very idea is repugnant.

Trav if Catherine is saying we should not bother preaching the gospel to certain peoples she is wrong. I can boldly assert this only because this is what God's word says. My opinion is of no consequence. See for example Mark 16:15 and Matthew 28:19.

It is obvious you also have no idea what Catherine meant by her garbled collection of sentences. This isn't meant as an insult to her but a comment on the obvious. Surely we must all do our best to make clear statements.

---Warwick on 12/1/10


Warwick, you are right, I did not get it right either, for she corrected me. I believe you do great in answering, and don't think you are superior but might have more insight on many topics then others might in some cases. But so is everyone else. Depending on the studies and depending on how much the Spirit reveals to us. Also something that matters very much is that we do not allow our theological bias to stop us from learning.

Trav, maybe you are the perfect person to unscramble this sentence ...
---Warwick on 11/30/10

What is the most apparent is Catherine applied scripture correctly and you added to it. She/ep tagged you scripturally and you couldn't handle it. Goes against your false doctrines.
True Sheep seek/see scriptural authority, wolves seeking a way in, cloak it. John 6:44
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
---Trav on 12/1/10


Trav, maybe you are the perfect person to unscramble this sentence which Catherine wrote "What my statement was originally said by me and his bringing up that Scripture, which had absolutely nothing to do, a much to do, with witnessing to an individual or a bunch of people who just don't or won't believeee or care about, Jesus Christ." ???

I am not trying to be smart but I have absolutely no idea what Catherine means. Maybe English is not her first language.

Also I am sorry you believe I see myself superior to others. I do not.

Catherine, sometimes your English is so garbled that I am not sure what you mean.

My point is that it is our job to preach the gospel to all and sundry.---Warwick on 11/28/10

Here's the deal Catherine. You'll never be as superior as Warwick...thinks he is. Oh, he claims to understand a muslim but, not a sheep.
His superiorness and ilk promote a gospel that is not in scripture. (Note he posts no scripture above as witness) Gospel means good news/truth. Good news for the Matt 10:6/15:24 sheep.
For 2000 years, these people have been/are found....you can rejoice. Others reject. He rejects/garbles himself....this hidden from himself simple truth.
---Trav on 11/29/10


We must explain to those in other religions that Christ is the only way to the father Acts 4:12 and John 14:6 and that without His shed blood that there is no forgiveness for their sins Heb 9:22 and Gal 1:4. If you can cause someone to see there is no other way to God the Father except through God the Son there can be a transforming of thought when they realize the goodness of God Rom 2:4 to send His only Son for them.1 John 4:9
---paul on 11/28/10


Catherine, I get you point now. I thought you were concern with the rest of the passages. I guess it would be fine to do what you say, but only if they refuse to listen or try to mock the word you bring them. There is where the principles of Matthew 7:6 should be used,
"Do not give what is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces"
Other passages also speak of what we should do when others reject or trample the word of God. But we should first bring the gospel to them, that is commanded of all of us by Jesus Christ. If that does not work we dust off our shoes and move on.
---Mark_V. on 11/28/10


Catherine, sometimes your English is so garbled that I am not sure what you mean.

My point is that it is our job to preach the gospel to all and sundry. And it is not our job to prejudge who will and who will not receive the message. It is not our job to convict or save, that is God's job.

A true evangelist takes any opportunity to spread the truth of the gospel anytime, and to anyone.

From experience I know that Muslim's are often very sincere seekers after God but to varying extents blinded to the truth of the gospel, because of their indoctrination. However that does not and should not stop us from giving them the good news.

No. That is not what I was saying, at tall. Warwick Missed the whole thing. What my statement was originally said by me and his bringing up that Scripture, which had absolutely nothing to do, a much to do, with witnessing to an individual or a bunch of people who just don't or won't believeee or care about, Jesus Christ. Hallelujah. Do you get my POINT?
---catherine on 11/28/10


Warwick, I believe that Catherine is saying that your explanation was not complete because you did not finish what Paul was saying in Romans 10:12-15, for the next verses say, they did hear and did not obey the gospel. Faith had not come to them even though they heard the gospel truth. Israel was ignorant of the salvation truth contained in her own Scriptures, including that the gospel would reach the Gentiles, as promised in Deut. 32:21, Is. 65:1,2.
The only ones that call on Him are those who have faith. "For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to 'all who call upon Him." for whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved" Why? because they have faith.
---Mark_V. on 11/28/10


Warwuick, I am so sorry, but you do not understand that one particular scripture. Please try and stick to the topic on the blogs.
---catherine on 11/27/10


I have a niece through marriage who is a convert from Islam, & I have now ministe to a girl who was muslim, & has opened her life to the Lord Jesus. Discernment of spirit & being spirit filled (so that you are strong in the Lord, does not mean all charismatics/pentecostals are!) are essentials to minister to muslims, who are very committed & disciplined in their faith. A sensual free lifestyle of "Christians" in dress, sexual beliefs etc. are tools for satan to use, so you could be helping him than the cause of the Lord.

The case of Dr. Ergun Caner (was the head of Liberty University's seminary) is an example. He lied about his testimony of conversion from Islam. Muslims exposed the factual lies online.

Catherine, Scripture says otherwise.

Romans 10:12-15 "For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'

Because of the courageous and loving preaching of many to Muslims large numbers are being saved.
---Warwick on 11/27/10


They will not believe you, anyways. It is impossible for anyone to believe, not until after Jesus saves them. Don't waist your time, in trying to convince another person of Jesus Christ. Now, If someone asks you, that's a different scenario. Then they would be leaving themselves wide open for a good witnessing time for Jesus+
---catherine on 11/27/10


When preaching the gospel we must understand the listeners culture.

Consider the difference between Peter (Acts ch. 2) and Paul in Athens (Acts 17). Peter's listeners were well founded in God's word, understood the message and thousands were saved. However when Paul preached to Athenians they had no Biblical foundation, could not understand, and thought him mad. Paul didn't curse or reject them because of this, but at his next opportunity preached the gospel in a way they understood. He gave the gospel a foundation and we all know how many gentiles came to the Lord from then on, via Paul's works.

Likewise Muslim's need to be approached in a way considerate of their totally different religious culture, and understanding.
---Warwick on 11/23/10


Witnessing to a Muslim is no different from witnessing to an unbeliever. Tell it as it is, "unless ye repent, ye will likewise perish."
---christan on 11/15/10

Why would you? Repent? They were never under the laws of Israel.

They have had 2,000+ years to accept, that Christ is GOD of Israel, didn't seem to take or interest them. Didn't take the disciples long to dust their feet. It takes denom/doctrinally and preacher confused Christians century's.
We have a very high rate of literacy in this country but an even higher degree dependance on someone else standing before GOD in front of us. Wake up, you'll be there one day....all by yourself. Ur denom/doc'd Shepherd was not one at all....he ran.

How...? As the Lord leads by unction of His Holy Spirit! Otherwise, shutup!!! Don't beat the water with a stick & think you're going to catch fish. There's a saying: "A fool tries to convince me with his reasons. A wise person persuades me with my own." Again, be a witness only as God has set the stage & makes room for your Christian testimony (words your mouth) & expressed assurance of salvation only thru Jesus Christ.
---Leon on 11/20/10


In general, Muslims are extremely loyal to their traditions and families. To break them from their understandings would lead the Muslim down a very narrow and lonely path (humanly speaking), as they would no longer be one with their families and friends. Our Messiah Christ explained that entering the kingdom does not happen when you walk the broad road. The narrow road leads to heaven (communion with God) and the broad road, of course, leads to every where else but heaven. The broad road is full of traditions and things that are in essence foolishness to God. The only thing that matters to God is that you love Him and follow His laws of love for one's own good and for the good of all His people.
---Syvannah on 11/19/10


(1) The Holy Spirit has to lead you into it(2) As Moderator & AlwaysOn has already written, you have to learn something about what the Muslim knows & believes. (3) You have to be friendly and avoid arguments. (4) You must be ready to listen to him/her as well as he/she will also like to tell you what he/she knows. (5) By interaction, listening and comparison, people have been able to reach some for Christ.
---Adetunji on 11/16/10


---Syvannah on 11/15/10 I did all that you said and I let him see the love of God shine through me by shaking his hand (because he asked me to).

I am almost at a point where I believe they are sooo rooted in demonic activity or in demons themselves, that they don't want to believe or hear about Jesus.

I believe (after speaking with this man for many hours about Jesus) that they think they are the RIGHT ones and we are WRONG in our beliefs.

Are they THAT deceived? and why are they?

"How should a Christian witness to a Muslim?" Just as you would to anyone else.
"Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season." 2Ti 4:2
But "Avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law, for they are unprofitable and useless." Tts 3:9
"Hold fast the faithful word as [you] hath been taught, that [you] may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers." Tts 1:9
"In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works, in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you." Tts 2:7,8
---josef on 11/16/10


Your best witness to a Muslim is the example of how you live your life as a Christian. If you are friends, explain your beliefs and your experiences as a follower of Christ, that you believe in baptism and believe in the Gospel of Christ. Explain your hope for heaven and your hope for the return of Christ. Muslims too, hope for the return of Christ, but they have a different understanding. Show Christian love and charity, but there is nothing gained from endless arguments about Christ vs. the prophet Mohammed.
---Syvannah on 11/15/10


How many people did the Messiah approach with news of the Kingdom by first telling them they were going to hell? Like the moderator said, start with common ground first. Remember that Muslims hold Yahushua (aka Jesus) in high regard. In the Quran, he is referred to as Issa. So, to answer your question, start by educating yourself on what they already know and love about Him, and go from there. There's a book by former congressman Mark Siljander on this very topic, which you may find enlightening if you're truly interested in witnessing to Muslims.
