Rebuttal to Answering Islam's Article "Are Christian Dyed or Baptized?"
Their article could be located here.
Read it first and then my response.
Since some Christians believe that baptism is part of salvation, Allah is only using a figure of speech saying that the baptism of Allah is the best and only way for salvation.
When Allah says 'baptism of Allah' it is simply referring to the religion of Allah, which is Islam. Refer to (Tafsir of Suyuti), (Tafsir of Tabari) and (Tafsir of Qurtubi).
We don't believe that Prophet John ever ordered baptism. Even if he did, then it was probably only meant for that time. In Islam we have something similar known as Ghusl and someone who becomes a Muslim is obliged to take it.
