God loves, Allah doesn't We love Him because He first loved us.

As you see above, 1 John 4:19 says that God loved us first. If you want to bring Muslims to Christ, this is a good Scripture to start with. Devout Muslims, or what the West has masked as "radical" and "extremist", are willing go die for Allah, especially if they're engaging in jihad (holy war against "infidels" or non-Muslims). Since they are so willing to die, any devout believer in Christ would wonder why. Well, this question was sort of answered already but when sharing the Gospel with a Muslim, I ask what Allah did for them that they're so "hopelessly devoted" to the seventh century pagan idol. They cannot answer the question because there is no answer.

Coming back to this Scripture, God loved us first. This also connects to the famous John 3:16 "for God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (NKJV). But all in all, God loved us first and STILL loves us today... even the Muslims.
