Some useful pages on Islam

Islam, as is true of all other religions, does not offer the guarantee of Salvation that following Jesus does, since it offers no “Saviour“.

The Quran’s teachings regarding salvation give no assurance of salvation. On the one hand, the Quran teaches that salvation is based on purification by good deeds (Quran 7:6–9). A Muslim can become righteous through prayer, almsgiving, fasting, and living according to the Quran.

Yet the Quran also teaches that Allah has predetermined every person’s destiny, and one’s righteous acts may or may not affect Allah’s decision (Quran 57:22).

It teaches that everyone, both the righteous and the unrighteous, will be led into hell by Allah, before the righteous will enter heaven (Quran 19:67–72). Therefore no Muslim can know his or her eternal destiny in this life.

Even Muhammad himself was unsure of his salvation (Quran 31:34; 46:9).
