When it comes to debating Islam with atheists, it is futile to debate any subjects of Islam like; prophecy, morals, laws, or any other subject of faith if the basis of faith itself is ignored. It is useless to discuss a subject if there is no common ground to start with, i.e. the presence of a Creator.
So getting into morality with an atheist is the worst thing to do because he has no set morality, and no reference. As it goes for laws, the same applies. As it goes for prophecy, the cause is negated (Allah), therefore the reason is refuted by default.
That’s why the only terrain on which one can discuss with an atheist is whether there is, or not, the presence of a Creator. And even on this point, can anyone really doubt the presence of a Creator
… “Is there any doubt about Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth?…
Surah Ibrahim (14 – 10)
For me, believing in the Creator of Heavens and Earth is like saying the sun is there (pointing to the sun). It is the ultimate truth. But for you, it’s not pertinent to know what I think, it’s more important for you to know what you believe in. So instead of debating whether there is a god or not, we shall discover how Allah reveals his word in the Quran as the ultimate truth. And if you accept it as the truth, that the Quran cannot be of a worldly origin, only from an All-Knowing entity, then you have concluded that Allah is true.
Now hold your horses, no one is to believe this claim without evidence. So that is exactly what we are going to do in the following weeks In Sha Allah. Prove beyond any doubt that the Quran comes from the All-Knowing, Allah.
