Ankerberg: Salvation was what for you in Islam? In other words, to get to Paradise, what in the world were you supposed to do?
Emir: Well, the pillars of Islam really demonstrate that Islam is the works-based religion in the world. Not only reciting the creed, “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His prophet,” and saying it tens of thousands of times through your life; but the prayers five times daily; the fasting which is one lunar month out of the year; and going to Mecca; and doing the tithe. These five pillars encompass your entire life. They fill up your days. And to the Muslim they are everything of who you are. When you give birth to a child, you whisper the creed into your child’s ear. When you look at your finances, it has an Islamic stamp upon it. Just like it would because it’s, you have a cradle-to-the-grave religion. This is what we were taught. And why it’s so hard to reach out to Muslims is it’s not merely theological. So many Christians dichotomize and divorce their faith from their life, so sadly so; in Islam you cannot do so.
