Common Questions asked by Non Muslims
Yusha (Joshua) Evans was raised by his grandparents in Greenville, South Carolina in a very strict Methodist home. In his teenage years, he became very involved in the church and was studying at a small Bible college in his hometown with the intention of eventually enrolling in Bob Jones University. He 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 he read the Bible cover to cover a half a dozen times. In doing so, he realized there were many inconsistencies and contradictions. He realized the Bible was not the inerrant Word of God as he had always been taught. He eventually left Christianity and searched for the truth about God elsewhere.
He studied every religion from Judaism to Buddhism, Wicca to Bushido. While many religions had certain truths to them, they had major tenants or flaws he could not accept. All praise is due to God, one day he found himself talking with a young Muslim who invited him to jumuah, the Friday service and congregational prayer. When he 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 him. He asked for a copy of the Quran, read it from cover to cover in three days, and the rest (as they say) is history.
May God show us all the straight path, Ameen!
