"A group of atheists once approached the great Imām, Abū Ḥanīfa with theintention of killing him. The Imām asked them what they would say about a person who claims that he has seen a ship laden with goods sailing on the sea transporting the goods from one shore to another.
The goods are piled onto the ship automatically and are similarly off-loaded by themselves upon reaching their destination. The ship navigates the waves perfectly all by itself with no sailor to steer it.
They replied that no sane human would accept such a nonsensical contention.
Thereupon the Imām remarked: "Pity upon your intelligence. If a mere ship cannot sail smoothly without a sailor, how then can it be ever possible that this entire universe runs so perfectly without a controller?"
Upon hearing this they were utterly embarrassed and immediately accepted Islam at the hands of the Imām."

(Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah page 11)

Common Xian argument: "Ur Prophet wasn't sent to us and was only sent to the Arabs."

Here's that argument rendered worthless.
Xians typically quote this verse in support of their argument:

ومآ أرسلنا من رسول إلا بلسان قومهۦ ليبين لهم ۖ فيضل ٱلله من يشآء ويهدى من يشآء ۚ وهو ٱلْعزيز ٱلْحكيم

(سورة إبراهيم آية 4)
"And We did not send any messenger except [speaking] in the language of his people to state clearly for them, and Allah sends astray [thereby] whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise."

1) Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you should. If everyone was obese, would you want to be as well?

2) This is a hasty generalisation. Not all Muslims are the same. Plus, studies show the more practicing a person is, the less likely they will do such things.
3) Without critical thinking, you won't be able to evaluate what you do or act in a rational way. Plus, why are you slandering somebody with no evidence?

4) Nope. Immigrants aren't a threat. Immigrants generate money for a country. The stats disprove this ignorant claim.

Here's a tweet on Tawheed:
What is Tawheed?

Tawheed is the belief in Islam that God is one. Period. There is no God besides Allah the Exalted. Tawheed can be split up into three types:

- Tawheed al-Rububiyyah
- Tawheed al-Uluhiyyah
- Tawheed al-Asma wa al-Sifaat
Tawheed al-Rububiyyah means "The Oneness of Lordship".

There are many places where Allah affirms this Tawheed in the Quran, His Perfect Word:

Here's a response to a common argument Xians make trying to disprove Al-Islam.

Their argument is that the Quran confirms their scriptures; their scriptures disagree with Islam and so are false.

"Between Your Hands" Claim.

While "ما بين يديه" does indeed literally mean "what is between his hands", the context is not that.

It means "what was before", back when it was the uncorrupted Torah of Moses (Not Ezra) , which occurs a plenty of times in this form.
نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكَ ٱلْكِتَـٰبَ بِٱلْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَأَنزَلَ ٱلتَّوْرَىٰةَ وَٱلْإِنجِيلَ

مِن قَبْلُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَأَنزَلَ ٱلْفُرْقَانَ ۗ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ بِـَٔايَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ ذُو ٱنتِقَامٍ
