Reply to "Who is Allah (according to Islamic teachings)"

Quote from article: A Muslim may love Allah and wish to please Allah, but the question in his mind will invariably be “is it enough? Are my works enough to merit salvation?” Christians believe that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to provide an answer to the question “is my work enough?” The answer is, no, our work is not enough (Matthew 5:48). This is shocking to anyone who has been trying on his own to appease God. But this was the point of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1–48). The Jews that Jesus spoke to, just like the Muslims who follow Allah, were trapped by the knowledge that nothing they did would ever meet God’s perfect standard. But Christ’s perfect life, atoning death, and resurrection did meet God’s standard (Hebrews 10:10; Romans 8:1–8). Jesus’ message to the Jews and His message now, to Muslims and everyone else, is “repent and believe” (Mark 1:15). This does not mean “stop sinning” and “believe that God exists.” It means “turn from sin and stop trying to please God by your own ability” and “believe that Christ has accomplished everything for you.” The promise to those who trust Christ is that they will become the children of God (John 1:12).

 

First of all, Muslims don't follow Allah. Allah is God. Muslims follow Muhammad so right off the bat, the author does not even know what Muslims do.

Secondly, as I mentioned above, if Muslims do no good or no bad in their life, they will get to heaven because Allah in His infinite mercy brought them into this world with a clean slate. They are not born with sin nor are they inclined to commit sin. In fact, people are naturally inclined to do good and usually have to push themselves very hard to do bad things. So salvation is useless since there is no original sin to be saved from. Muslims' striving is to raise their standing in heaven since they believe in a heaven with different levels. Jesus death can't save no one and Jesus certainly didn't have a perfect life. That is all nonsense. In fact, of all the religious personalities ever recorded, Jesus was the most hapless and the least successful one. Imagine that his closest compadres didn't even accept him. All other religious personalities had multitudes of followers who accepted them while they were still here. Hoping that Jesus can save you is a pipe's dream. He couldn't even save himself.

Allah on the other hand is enough as a provider amongst other attributes listed  here
