If you are Muslim you have been taught and lied to believe that God is not a Father. I want you to know that God IS a Father and not only do His prophets say so, but Jesus (the One whom He calls His Son and to listen to) says so and Jesus is the Truth and does not lie. Jesus also said that anything that He says the Father told Him to say.

Muhammad on the other hand spoke from an “angel”, in a dark cave, at night…saying the complete opposite of Jesus and the Father. This is why Allah is not the God of Abraham and Islam is not an Abrahamic religion.

God being a Father was not invented in the New Testament as some people claim. He has been called Father and here are a FEW of many verses that shows so in the Old Testament:

Jeremiah 31:9  They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.

Isaiah 64:8  But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Isaiah 63:16  Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.

Deuteronomy 32:6  Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? Is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?

Jeremiah 3:19  But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.

Malachi 1:6  A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

Malachi 2:10  Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

Proverbs 3:12  For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Psalms 103:13  Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

Not only is God Almighty known as the “Father”, He calls His people as “Children”

Hosea 1:10  Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

Isaiah 1:2  Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

Exodus 4:22,23  And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

Deuteronomy 14:1  Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

Hosea 11:1  When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

Psalms 82:6  I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

These are not even half the scripture that God calls Himself a Father and is called a Father by those who believed in Him before Jesus’ ministry. God can be a Father. A man doesn’t start fatherhood. God does and because all things come from God He is the first Father and the First Prophet to teach fatherhood and prophethood to man. That’s why a Muslim’s claim that Jesus is “just a prophet” is invalid to try to denounce His divinity. Jesus is THE Prophet before all prophets existed as He said Himself “Before Abraham WAS, I AM”. I AM is the name of God, not Allah.

You have to first BE what you teach in order to teach it. God is the only Teacher in heaven you should be listening to Muslims as we all are. Jesus whom you claim to believe in says to call no man teacher (Matthew 23:8) and yet Islam functions off of Imam’s (teachers) interpretations of Muhammad and Jesus. You are not obeying what Jesus says who says you have one Father in heaven (Matthew 23:9)

God is a Father because He is our provider which is also what Father means in Hebrew and He teaches men how to be husbands and fathers by His righteousness. God sets the definition of what a father is and looks like by leading by example. He doesn’t need anything and doesn’t have a wife to be our Father. Men need a woman to compliment them to be considered a husband and to have children and be considered a father. God does not and He defines Fatherhood.

Don’t lean on your own understanding and base your understanding on what God defines Himself as. That is what Muhammad and many people outside of Islam try to do and fail. It is written also that God is a Father to the fatherless and protector of widows is God in is His Holy habitat (Psalm 68:5).

Stop listening to what another man said as Jesus warned that many would do who do not accept Him and what He said long before Muhammad was born (John 5:43) and believe what God says that sent Jesus and not Muhammad (Luke 9:35) who came lying saying that God “can’t” be a father. Saying this is giving glory to man who CAN be a father, while it’s also claiming that ONLY man can be a father, which is also claiming that man can be and do what God cannot (a lie) and all glory goes to man with this false claim when all glory goes to God alone who doesn’t have limitations. Man does. Allah is not the God of the Bible.
