Amader Bap Khuda
Arabic-like reversed order of Bengali pages as a gesture to the Arabic Qur'an. Jesus is the bestower of salvation from sins. Whoever surrenders to him will gain forgiveness from his Father who will lodge the saved individuals in Paradise. The Muslims…

Ke Amader jonno Shiphayot koriben?
Sins such as theft against people of property are like those committed against god. If the justly-jailed thief repents, could Muhammad act as his intercessor? That would be ruled out by the fact that Muhammad committed sins. Since the Qur'an says…

Shofayot
Written in clear Sanskritised literary Bengali interspersed with a few pro-forma Arabic words. Render sMu'minin (Believers) with word debpujokera. No verse in the Qur'an and hadith mentions that Muhammad could intercede with God to forgive sins. Only…

Amra Isa Masihke Mani
Not everyone who praises Jesus with his mouth will enter into Heaven. Those who praise Jesus with their mouths but misrepresent his nature will be "all completely whipped out on the Day of judgement" ("tahader shorbonash hoibe"). Jesus said that he…

Jonab Isa Masiher Boyan
The Qur'an says that Atonement is not necessary. In contrast, the New Testament, including the Gospels, St Paul, and the Book of Revelation say that Jesus died to lift sin and suffering from human beings.

Forqan
The Torah, Psalms and four Gospels are all God's word: all predict that the evildoers go to Hell and the pious to Heaven, and that Moses and Jesus worked miracles. The Mawlavis say that the Qur'an is beautifully styled but the Bengal-resident people…

Qur’an kirupe Khristio Dhormo-Shastroshomuher Promankare o Rokhokshorup hai
The Qur'an claims to maintain previous scriptures, yet it often contradicts them. For instance, it denies that Jesus was the son of God: he was little more than an ordinary Prophet. To maintain that the Qur'an breaks with the line of concepts from…

Hojrot Muhammader Begona Thaka bishoye Musulman Maolavi Sahebegoner shikha
This is an argument with Mawlawi Helaluddin of Shantipur, and Shamsul-'Ulama' Mawlawi Ahmad of Calcutta Madrasah College. The Mawlawis argue that all prophets were sinless. Why then did the Qur'an depict Moses as felling an Egyptian who was fighting…
