THE SEVEN PROPOSALS OF MUHAMMAD THAT WERE REJECTED

 

1. Why did some women reject Muhammad's proposals?

2. Why did Muhammad continue to propose despite the rejections?


Dear reader,


Today I will provide evidence to show how Muhammad loved women, but some rejected his proposals and did not care about his prophethood or his wives.


Muhammad asked to marry Ghaziyyah because of her beauty, but he was rejected. Tabari claims that [Ghaziyyah] was not faithful, but he does not provide evidence. al-Tabari, volume 9, p. 136. There is no evidence that [Ghaziyyah] was unfaithful and that Muhammad was not careful not to punish her, or that she was unfaithful and Muhammad punished her.


Layla touched Muhammad's shoulder from behind and asked him to marry her. Muhammad agreed. Layla's relatives said, "How bad a thing you have done! You are a respectable woman, but the Prophet loves women. Try to separate yourself from him." Layla went to the Prophet and asked him to annul the marriage, and he agreed to that request." al-Tabari, volume 9, p. 139.


From al-Tabari, volume 9, pp. 140-141, Muhammad proposed to but did not marry:

1) Umm Hani’ bin Abi Talib [Hind] because she had a child.

2) Duba’ah bint ‘Amir because she was too old.

3) It is reported that he proposed to Saffiyah bint Bashshamah, a captive. She had to choose between Muhammad and her husband, and she chose her husband.

4) Umm Habib bint al-‘Abbas, but because al-‘Abbas was her foster brother, it was not permissible by law, so Muhammad decided to withdraw.

5) Jamrah binti Al-Harith. Her father mistakenly thought she was afflicted with something. When he returned, he found out she had already been afflicted with leprosy.


It is not explained in a clear statement whether Umm Hani’ was a Muslim before or after Muhammad asked her to marry him. al-Tabari, volume 39, p. 197 and footnote at the bottom of page 857, p. 197.


Dear reader, who is a follower of Islam, can you tell us why Muhammad's seven proposals were rejected?

MOST MUSLIMS CANNOT FACE MECCA TO PRAY

 

Muslims world-wide are commanded to pray facing Mecca. This is one of the most illogical Islamic rituals that is still being practiced by Muslims in this age of scientific enlightenment. Let us explain what we mean by this. The majority of the Muslims cannot and will not face Mecca even when they strictly observe the direction of the Qiblah (Kiblah) during their prayers. The term Qiblah simply refers to the prayer direction of the Muslims which is the Ka’ba in Mecca. This article will provide evidences to prove why the majority of the Muslims will be unable to do so. The command for Muslims to pray towards Mecca is revealed in the following Qur’anic verses:


Surah 2:50: “And from wheresoever you start forth for prayers, turn your face in the direction of Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah), and wheresoever you are, turn your faces towards, it when you pray.” (Hilali-Khan)


Surah 2:144: “We have seen the turning of thy face to heaven (for guidance, O Muhammad). And now verily We shall make thee turn (in prayer) toward a Qiblah which is dear to thee. So turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship, and ye (O Muslims), wheresoever ye may be, turn your faces (when ye pray) toward it.” (Pickthall)


While standing upright, the Muslims of the world who are further away from Mecca will not be able to face the Ka’ba while praying. While standing erect, the line of sight of any person will be projected towards outer space. This line of sight is a tangent to the earth, which is a sphere. Since Allah believed erroneously that the earth is flat, he made it mandatory for every Muslims to face Mecca while praying:


Surah 20:53: “He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out. (Yusuf Ali)


Surah 15:19: “And the earth We have spread out like a carpet.” (Yusuf Ali)


Tafsir al-Jalalayn (Surah 15:19):


And the earth We have stretched it out, spread it flat, and cast therein firm mountains, lest it should sway beneath its inhabitants, and caused to grow therein every kind of balanced thing, [every kind of thing] known and determined.


Since the vast majority of Muslims of the world will only be facing outer space when they follow the direction of the Qiblah, how can Allah then command Muslims “wheresoever” they are on this spherical earth to face Mecca? The fact is only those living near Mecca can face the Ka’ba while praying.


For Muslims who are located on the opposite side of the world from Mecca, their Qiblah would be directly down towards the ground if they want to face Mecca. For example, people in Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean will have to pray vertically downward to the center of the earth because Solomon Islands is about exactly on the other side of the earth from Mecca. In view of the global shape of the earth, a Muslim’s attempt to face Mecca from this part of the world–in the prescribed Islamic way–would be futile because he will be facing the sky and not Mecca.


Let us now analyze this issue from another angle. Let us take the example of a Muslim praying from the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean which is on the other side of the earth from Mecca. As stated above, he will be facing outer space and not Mecca when he follows the direction of the Qiblah. For the sake of enlightenment, let’s give the Muslim some allowance. Even if we were to allow his vision to curve along with the contour of the earth, the result will still be damaging for Islam. You will be surprised to learn that he will now be able to face any direction and still be facing Mecca. This is especially true for the Muslims who live on the opposite side of the globe from Mecca. They can pray even in opposing directions and still face Mecca. This will therefore make the Qiblah absolutely meaningless for them. Unbelievable?


Try a little experiment. Take a ball or any spherically-shaped object. Draw point “A” on the ball and point “B” on the opposite side. Now, see how many lines you can draw connecting point “A” to point “B” on the ball. The result will be many, many lines. The earth is the ball. Point “A” would be Mecca and Point “B” is the Muslim who lives on the other side of the world. The Muslim at Point “B” can look in any direction and still face Mecca since the earth is a globe. If you are on the opposite of the earth from the Ka’ba in Mecca, you can pray in any direction. You can pray face to face with the man in front of you and you will still be facing Mecca.


According to Islam, it would be sacrilegious for a Muslim to pray with his back towards Mecca. From a flat-earth perspective, this would make sense. But being on a spherical globe, whenever a Muslim prays facing Mecca, he will without fail have his back towards Mecca at the same time. This will be especially true if he is living on the other side of the earth. Since Muslims are not allowed to answer the call of nature by either facing or turning their backs towards Mecca, how can they in reality avoid doing so in view of the global shape of the earth?


Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith Number 388:


Narrated By Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari: The Prophet said, “While defecating, neither face nor turn your back to the Qibla but face either east or west.” Abu Aiyub added. “When we arrived in Sham we came across some lavatories facing the Qibla; therefore we turned ourselves while using them and asked for Allah’s forgiveness.”


Sahih Muslim, Book 002, Number 0507:


Abu Ayyub reported: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Whenever you go to the desert, neither turn your face nor turn your back towards the Qibla while answering the call of nature, but face towards the east or the west.


The facts provided here are so obvious and does not require much thinking but Allah seems to be ignorant of this simple basic truth. The reason for this is apparent. Allah and Muhammad does not have a clue about the shape of the earth. Allah must have thought the earth is flat. Otherwise, he would not have commanded Muslims around the world to face a specific direction while praying. The blind faith of the Muslims prevents them from admitting and acknowledging this scientific error in the Qur’an. However the true Creator is not ignorant of the shape of the earth. Centuries before the Qur’an even came into existence, the Holy Bible accurately revealed the following truth:


Isaiah 40:22: There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth.


Having clarified why the majority of the Muslims cannot face Mecca while praying, let us now consider another serious error in the Qur’an regarding the Qiblah.


QIBLAH OF THE CHRISTIANS?


All too often we find Muslims falsely claiming that the Bible is no longer the authentic Word of God. They claim that the Qur’an was sent to replace the Bible. However, at the same instant they appeal to the Bible to authenticate the prophethood of Muhammad. They claim that the coming of Muhammad is prophesied in the Bible. Consequently, Muslims have to now juggle between the claim of corruption and the claim of authenticity of the verses that supposedly prophesied the coming of Muhammad. Therefore, to reconcile these conflicting views, Muslim apologists came up with an ingenious plan. They claim that only parts of the Bible which agrees with the Qur’an should be accepted as authentic. And where there are discrepancies between the Bible and the Qur’an, the Bible should be rejected in favor of the Qur’an.


While we are happy to acknowledge that there are major differences between the teachings of the Bible and the Qur’an, we do not agree with their argument that the Qur’an should have precedence in areas where it differs from the Bible. We will now show these Muslim apologists the error of their ways. We will use a single Qur’anic verse to demonstrate why it is erroneous for the Qur’an to have priority over the Bible in areas where they differ. Let us now look at a Qur’anic verse which assumes that the following practice is observed by Christians. Two different translations are provided below:


Surah 2:145: “Even if thou were to bring to the people of the Book all the Signs together, they would not follow Thy Qibla; nor art thou going to follow their Qibla; nor indeed will they follow each other’s Qibla.” (Yusuf Ali)


The people of the Book will surely not adopt or honor your ‘Qibla’ even if you brought them all the signs. You are not going to adopt their ‘Qibla’ either. Nor do they, (the Christians and the Jews), adopt each other’s ‘Qibla.’ (Munir Munshey)


After stating that the “people of the Book” (Jews and Christians) will not follow the Qiblah of the Muslims, the Qur’an then goes on to state, “nor will they follow each other’s Qiblah.” This is indeed a gross error in the Qur’an. Christians never had a Qiblah. They never had a specific direction to face while praying. So, how can the Qur’an then tell that the Jews will not follow the Qiblah of the Christians and vice-versa? It is a well-known historical fact that Christians never had a Qiblah. Even ordinary Muslims are aware of this fact. In the entire Christian Scriptures there is not even a slightest hint of a Qiblah for Christians. This is an obvious error in the Qur’an. As such, Allah could not be the source behind the inspiration of the Gospel as the Qur’an claims.


In line with the divine teachings of their sacred Scriptures, Christians are not required to pray towards a specific direction. In 2 Corinthians 4:18, the Bible commands Christians to keep their “eyes not on the things seen, but on the things unseen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things unseen are everlasting.” Thus, instead of directing their prayers with reverence towards any physical object or place, Christians are taught to direct their prayers towards their Creator. And because of this profound teaching in the Bible, Christians are not restricted to face a certain direction during their prayers. Furthermore, the divine nature of the true Christian faith rules out the association of any physically perceivable object as a focal point for Christians to worship their God. This is potentially idolatrous.


2 Corinthians 5:7: “For we are walking by faith, not by sight.”


The worship of Christians is not based on any external ritualistic form of veneration. Rather, it is a superlative form of devotion that is governed by the inner spiritual reverence of the person towards his Creator. Can true godliness be attained by just the bodily turning to the right or left? Is not the turning of the heart towards God in righteousness that counts with Him? Jesus firmly established the Christian position in the Gospel of John:


John 4:19-24: The (Samaritan) woman said to him: “Sir, I see that you are a prophet. Our forefathers worshiped on this mountain, but you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where people must worship.” Jesus said to her: “Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you people worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, because salvation began with the Jews. Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. For indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him. God is a Spirit and those worshiping him must worship with spirit and truth.”


According to the teachings of Jesus, it is futile to direct our prayers towards any physical objects or places of reverence, even if it means a city such as Jerusalem. Christians were never taught to pray facing any physical object, place or city. Thus, Christians were never required to face a specific direction while praying. If Christians had to face a certain direction in order to pray, it will be an insult to the supremacy of their God. Christians do not need a Qiblah. Jehovah, the God whom they worship, will be able to listen and accept the prayers of his faithful servants from whatever directions such prayers are expressed towards Him. It is not the direction of our prayers that matters to Jehovah but the trueness of our heart:


Psalms 145:18: Jehovah is near to all those calling on him. To all who call on him in truth.


The Qur’an made an enormous mistake when it spoke about the Qiblah of the Christians. We challenge Muslim apologists to produce a single verse from the Bible that speaks about the Qiblah of the Christians. This is actually a double error in the Qur’an. In the first place, the Qur’an made an obvious error in stating that Christians face a specific direction while praying. Secondly, the Qur’an failed to understand that it is ethically and morally wrong for a Christian to face a specific object while praying as Muslims do. This is because it is potentially idolatrous. Such an act does not harmonize with the spirit directed teachings of the Holy Bible.


From the very beginning, Jehovah God warned the Israelites from falling prey to this subtle form of idolatry. It is subtle because those who engage in this form of worship will deny–just as Muslims do today–that they are actually rendering worship to the object of reverence. Muslims cannot see it as an act of idolatry. Muslims claim that though they pray facing that object of reverence, their minds and prayers are actually directed towards Allah. Therefore, the object of reverence has no bearing whatsoever in their worship of Allah. If this claim is true, then there is absolutely no reason to face that object of reverence since it supposedly has no bearing whatsoever in their worship of Allah. In other words, their purpose of facing that object of reverence is in reality pointless. However, this argument does not change the fact that praying towards an object is potentially idolatrous. Consider now a parallel situation.


The Muslim argument is that while they pray facing the object of reverence, their minds and prayers are actually directed towards Allah. Therefore, they reason it is not actually an act of idolatry. The Muslim argument can be likened to that of a man who justifies his adulterous acts by claiming that he was only thinking of his wife while he was committing that sinful act. Does his reasoning absolve him of the sinful act? Adultery is adultery no matter where you direct your thoughts during that sinful act. And idolatry is idolatry no matter where you direct your thoughts while performing the idolatrous act.


Another claim that Muslims conjure up is that the purpose of the Qiblah is to promote unity. It is said that the entire Muslim world is unified by the requirement to face a single focal point while praying. However, contrary to the claims made by Muslims, unity is not attained by facing a single direction but by love. The fact that Muslims kill and slaughter one another–while facing a single Qiblah–is proof of this truth. Both Sunni and Shia Muslims share the same Qiblah. Why then are they slaughtering one another? The Islamic divide is actually much more serious than most Muslims are willing to admit.


Well, why are Muslims then commanded in the Qur’an to face that object of reverence whenever they approach Allah in prayer? Why is it mandatory for them to do so? Contrary to the claim of Muslims, that object of reverence is significant in their form of worship. It is an essential component in their sacred service to Allah. Thus, it is indisputably an act of idolatry.


And we must not overlook the fact that during the Hajj, Muslims actually touch and kiss the Black Stone with reverence–the focus of the direction of their prayers. That the Black Stone is truly the focus of their prayers can clearly be seen by the fact that the entire ritual of the Hajj centers on this idol in the shape of a Black Stone. And Muslims fondly kiss the Black Stone with reverence in their heart. This is purely an act of idolatry no matter what excuses Muslims give. Any reverence given to an object is idolatry. Why kiss a stone if your mind is on Allah?


Centuries before the arrival of Islam, Jehovah God warned the nation of Israel to avoid this subtle entrapment of Satan. An entrapment that Islam, centuries later, failed to escape. Read the warnings of Jehovah:


Leviticus 26:1: “Do not make for yourselves worthless idols. You must not erect for yourselves a carved statue or a sacred pillar and you must not put a stone as a sacred showpiece in your land to bow down toward it. I am Jehovah your God.”


Jehovah God told the Israelites not to bow down to any images. And that includes images in the form of a stone:


Exodus 20:4-5: “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them, because I Jehovah your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion.”


1 Corinthians 10:14: Therefore, my beloved ones, flee from idolatry.


There was never and there will never be a Qiblah for Christians. Christians can pray to their God from anywhere, from any direction, in any respectable position, at any time of the day or night and still be confident that their beloved God would listen to them. To insist that you have to face a specific direction or an object to talk to God is an insult to his Almightiness.


Well, there is a disagreement now between the teachings of the Bible and the teachings of the Qur’an. So, what should Christians do now? Should they listen to the suggestion of these Muslim apologists and abandon the profound teachings of the Holy Bible? Should they, in imitation of Muslims, start looking for a pagan sacred stone to face while praying? Would it not be wise for them to follow the divine teachings of the Bible and worship their God with spirit and truth? While we are on this subject, we would like these Muslim apologists to enlighten us on the following questions:


Since when did Christians have a Qiblah?

What is the Qiblah of the Christians?

Where are Christians supposed to face while praying?

If Allah is truly the one who inspired the writings of the Gospel as the Qur’an claims, then why did he not know that there is no Qiblah in Christianity?

What vital lessons can sincere Muslims learn from this article? The Qur’an should never contradict the teachings of the Holy Bible. As the following Qur’anic verse testifies, the Qur’an should never evaluate the Book that evaluates it:


Surah 10:94: So if you are in doubt, (O Muhammad), about that which We have revealed to you, then ask those who have been reading the Scripture before you. (Sahih International)


And Allah warns the Muslim apologists:


Surah 29:46: And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians). (Hilali-Khan)


Thus, we can clearly see that the suggestions of Muslim apologists to reject the teachings of the Bible that are in conflict with the Qur’an are not only baseless but it can also lead to embarrassment for Muslims. True Christians believe and accept the entire Bible as the authentic “Word of God.”


1 Thessalonians 2:13: “And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God’s message, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the Word of God.”


And it will be extremely wise for Muslims to do the same. We would like to conclude this article by raising the following thought-provoking questions:


Why must the prayers of the Muslims be directed towards the pre-Islamic pagan shrine in order to reach the ears of Allah?

Since the Blackstone was venerated by the pagans during pre-Islamic days, why are Muslims all over the world commanded to face the same pagan Blackstone whenever they pray?

If you say it to unify Muslims, why are there hundreds of Muslim sects in Islam?

Why are these Islamic sects, who while praying unitedly in the same direction, still fighting and killing each other, even within the same sect?

The Sunnis and the Shias face the same direction when they pray, why are they then not united?

We hope this article will move sincere Muslims to seek the Truth about the true God.


Shalom

WHY DO MUSLIMS LIKE TO INSULT CHRISTIANS?

 **Wednesday, November 16, 2016**

1. HERE IS THE SECRET OF INSULTS FROM MUSLIMS

2. MUHAMMAD ALSO USES VULGAR LANGUAGE TOWARDS AN ORPHAN


Christians should not be surprised by the insults from Muslims.


It is very common to see Muslims hurling heavy insults without any fear, especially when they find Christian arguments difficult to counter. They resort to insults because their mouths are filled with the words of Satan. Satan expands his rear and leaves flatulence in their mouths, making them insult without shame. This evidence is stated by Muhammad himself, the prophet of the Muslims.


**MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY SATAN IN THEIR MOUTHS:**


Abu Huraira (r.a) narrated that: The Prophet (s.a.w) said, "Anyone who insults, it is because Satan has influenced his mouth." (Fat'hul Baary Vol. 10, Pg. 176)


Therefore, our fellow Muslims are under the influence of Satan. We should not be too surprised by this but rather continue to preach the Gospel to them, so they may awaken and stop being influenced by Satan in their mouths, as Satan has a strong hold on them. Besides influencing their mouths, Satan also settles in their nostrils.


**SATAN SLEEPS IN THE NOSTRILS OF MUSLIMS:**


Abu Huraira (r.a) narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w) said, “When one of you wakes up from sleep, let him wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out three times, because Satan has spent the night in the upper part of his nose.” (Bukhari, Hadith No. 516, Vol. 4)


BUT SATAN DOES NOT JUST INFLUENCE THEIR MOUTHS AND SLEEP IN THEIR NOSTRILS; he also enjoys playing games by blowing on the buttocks of Muslims.


The Prophet (s.a.w) said, “Satan comes to one of you in prayer and blows on your buttocks, making you think that you have released wind when you did not. If you experience this, do not leave your prayer unless you hear a sound or smell something.” (THE BOOK OF SINCERE MUSLIMS, VOL. 1-2 HADITH NO. 74, PG. 42)


Therefore, we Christians have a great responsibility to deliver the Gospel to these slaves of Satan, the Muslims, so they can stop being influenced by Satan in their mouths, stop being his beds, and stop being used as his playthings through their buttocks.


**MUHAMMAD INSULTS AND CURSES AN ORPHAN**


Prophet Muhammad insulted and cursed an orphan who was with Umm Sulaim (the mother of Anas). (Sahih Muslim, Book 032, Number 6297)


**SHARE KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT INSULTS!**

Remember, all religions prohibit insults!


**ISLAM:**


Muhammad said: "A true believer does not accuse others, nor curse others, nor use vulgar language." {Musnadu Ahmad Vol. 1 Pg. 416, Hadith No. 3948}


**CHRISTIANITY:**


(Ephesians 4:31) - "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice."


**THERE IS JUDGMENT FOR THOSE WHO INSULT!**


(1 Corinthians 6:9-10) - "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God."


God bless you all.

THE ORIGIN OF THE QURAN AND ISLAM IS SATANIC

 **Monday, December 5, 2016**

Dear reader,


Today we will learn about the origin of the Quran and Islam. What or who is the source?


Without wasting time, let's begin reading Muslim books.


IF MUHAMMAD WAS BORN WITH SATAN, PLAYED WITH BY SATAN, WHY DO YOU FOLLOW HIM?


1. HIS BIRTH,

Abu Huraira (r.a) narrated that "Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) had Satan from the time he was born." (Fat'hul Baary Vol. 6 Pg. 389).


From the proof we read above, we have learned that Muhammad was born with the power of demons, and that is a very bad beginning since we have no verse or hadith that says Muhammad was freed from these demons when he was given prophecy by a strange creature.


Surprisingly, Muhammad was given prophecy by a strange creature that choked him until he struggled and saw stars. Read the proof below.


2. AFTER LEAVING THE CAVE, MUHAMMAD CONFESSES THE FOLLOWING,

So the Prophet was frightened, returned to his wife, told her, and immediately a high fever struck him. He wanted to be covered with clothes, trembling severely, and he was scared, saying, "I fear for myself, being played with by demons, ruining my mind and deceiving me." (The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, pg. 17, written by Sheikh A. Farsy).


You have read for yourself and understood that the act of Muhammad being choked until he struggled in this way surely did not come from the God of Adam, Abraham, Moses, and other Prophets of the Bible. There is not a single verse in the Holy Bible that says His prophets were choked by angels; instead, we read that all the prophets in the Bible were given prophethood by God Himself and not by a strange creature who gave Muhammad prophethood at night in a cave.


3. MUHAMMAD BEING BEWITCHED,

Aisha, the wife of the Prophet, said, "A Jew named Labiid bin Al'answan bewitched the Prophet Muhammad, and sometimes the Prophet would become confused and start calling out aimlessly." (Sahih Muslim Vol. 4 Pg. 38-39)


DOES IT MEAN THAT GOD COULD NOT FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO SEND EXCEPT MUHAMMAD WHO WAS PLAYED WITH BY DEMONS?


THIS IS A GREAT TRAGEDY FOR MUSLIMS, BECAUSE NOW WE KNOW THAT MUHAMMAD WAS NOT ONLY BORN WITH DEMONS BUT WAS ALSO ADDED TO BY BEING BEWITCHED.


Although there is no verse or hadith that says Muhammad was freed from demons, it is not wrong to acknowledge that Muhammad died with demons in his heart, and therefore his end is hellfire.


The tragedy continued later, even the writer of the Quran was possessed by demons.


My friends, why don't Muslims read their own books?


DID THE WRITER OF THE QURAN HAVE A DEMON?


READ:

The first person to learn reading and writing in the city of Mecca was Mr. Harb bin Umayya, the grandfather of Mr. Muawiya. He learned from the people of Yemen and then taught those who wanted to learn in Mecca.


When the Prophet received prophethood, there were only six people in Mecca who knew how to write. Four of them entered Islam and became the scribes of "Wahyi" (Quranic verses). These people were Sayyidna Abubakar, Sayyidna Umar, Sayyidna Uthman, and Sayyidna Ali. (The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, pg. 8, by Sheikh A. Farsy)


SAYYIDNA ABUBAKAR,

Abubakar said, "Surely I have a demon that visits me from time to time, so whenever it comes to me, avoid me." (Tabaqatul Kubra, Vol. 3 Pg. 212)


NOW, IF THE "QURAN" WAS WRITTEN BY A PERSON WHO HAD A DEMON, WHY SHOULD WE NOT ACCEPT THAT THESE ARE VERSES FROM SATAN?


Dear reader, I urge you to be careful with Islam because there is nothing good there except demons everywhere. From Muhammad, the Quran, to their Allah, all have confirmed that Satan is in their hearts.


So why follow Satan when the Great God exists and loves you?


JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO SALVATION. ALLAH IS NOT THE WAY. MUHAMMAD IS NOT THE WAY. THE QURAN IS NOT THE WAY.


Jesus is the only way to salvation because He alone can pay the penalty for our sins (Romans 6:23). No other religion teaches the depth and seriousness of sin and its consequences. No other religion pays the penalty for sin except Jesus alone. No other "religious founder" had God become human (John 1:1, 14) - the only way to pay the debt. Jesus had to be God so He could pay our debt. Jesus had to become human so He could die. Salvation is found through faith in Jesus Christ! “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).


Have you made a decision for Christ based on what you have read here?


Make sure you understand the meaning of salvation.


1 John 5:13 tells us, "I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life." God wants us to understand the meaning of salvation. God wants us to have confidence in knowing for sure that we are saved. Let's briefly go over the key aspects of salvation:


(a) We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God (Romans 3:23).


(b) Because of our sins, we deserve to be punished by being separated from God forever (Romans 6:23).


(c) Jesus died on the cross for our sins (Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus died in our place, taking the punishment that we deserved. His resurrection proved that Jesus' death was sufficient to pay for our sins.


(d) God offers forgiveness and salvation to all who believe in Jesus – trusting His death as the payment for our sins (John 3:16; Romans 5:1; Romans 8:1).


Those are the details of salvation! If you have placed your faith in Jesus as your Savior, you are saved! All your sins are forgiven, and God promises never to leave you or forsake you (Romans 8:38; Matthew 28:20). Remember, your salvation is secure in Jesus Christ (John 10:28-29). If you believe in Jesus alone as your Savior, you can be confident that you will spend eternity with God in heaven!


God bless you all,


I am Dr. Max Shimba, a servant of Jesus Christ, the GREAT GOD

MUHAMMAD NEVER SPLIT THE MOON

 

HE USED A LUNAR ECLIPSE AS A MIRACLE FOR ISLAMIC PAGANS


Join me directly and let's see where the lie is in this religion of Gabriel ibn Allah.


MUHAMMAD'S CLAIMS ABOUT THE SPLITTING OF THE MOON


"The pagans demanded of the Prophet that he show them a miracle, and he showed them the splitting of the moon. 'Abdullah bin Massud reported: During the lifetime of the Prophet the moon was split into two parts and on that the Prophet said, 'Bear witness (to this).' Bukhari volume 4 book 56 chapter 26 and volume 4 book 56 chapter 26 and.830, p.533.


Note that splitting into two parts means that the moon was divided in half, and the verb used here is in the past tense. We have no records of any other people in the world, including their neighbors in Egypt, Syria, or Persia, who saw the moon split into two parts. The Quran and hadiths do not say how the moon could return to being one again.


Imam Ahmad recorded that Jubayr bin Mutw'im said: "The moon was split into two parts during the time of the Messenger of Allah and part of the moon was on one mountain and the other part on another mountain. They said (the pagans), "Muhammad has bewitched us". Then they said: "If Muhammad can bewitch us, he could not bewitch all people" [Imam Ahmad]


Imam Ahmad recorded that Jubayr Mutwila said that the Moon was split into two parts and part of the Moon was placed on a mountain.


NOW LET'S START OUR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND CALCULATIONS.


THE MOON HAS A DIAMETER OF 1079 MILES


This means that the size of the Moon is about 14.6 million square miles, equivalent to 38 million square kilometers. Compared to the entire continent of Asia, which is about 17.2 million square miles, you can see that the entire continent of Asia is slightly smaller than the Moon.


SAUDI ARABIA HAS A SIZE OF (800,000 SQUARE MILES)


Now, half of the moon has a size of 7.3 million square miles, which is more than 14 times the size of Saudi Arabia. BUT MUHAMMAD CLAIMS AND CONVINCES MUSLIMS THAT HE PLACED THIS 7.3 MILLION SQUARE MILE PIECE ON A MOUNTAIN WITHIN A SMALL COUNTRY WHICH IS 14 TIMES SMALLER.


Why don't Muslims understand mathematics, or why do they like to act stupid and foolish when this claim of splitting the Moon can be proven by fourth-grade math calculations?


LET'S READ THIS CLAIM IN ANOTHER HADITH


"Anas reported that the people of Mecca asked the Prophet of Allah to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting moon." Bukhari volume 4 book 56 chapter 26 and.831, p.533.


SO, HOW DID MUHAMMAD SHOW THEM THE MOON WHICH, IF PLACED ON A MOUNTAIN AS HE CLAIMS, WOULD COVER ALL OF ARABIA?


So where did Muhammad stand when he showed these two halves of the Moon, each the size of half of the continent of Asia?


When we say that the late Muhammad was a FALSE prophet, we are not accusing him more than giving him his solid attribute of FALSEHOOD.


WHAT HAPPENED?


LUNAR ECLIPSE


A lunar eclipse is when the Moon does not appear partially or completely for a short time until it reappears as a full moon. This change can last from one hour to three and a half hours.


A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth's shadow falls over the Moon partially or completely. This happens when the Moon, Earth, and Sun are in line, with the Earth in the middle of the Sun and the Moon. Then the Earth's shadow touches the Moon. It only happens during a full moon. This is the opposite of a solar eclipse, where the Sun, Moon, and Earth are also in line but the Moon is between the Sun and the Earth, and this is when the Moon causes darkness on the Earth's surface where its shadow passes over the Earth.


Often, lunar eclipses are not easy to recognize because they are not complete. Here the Moon passes through only part of Earth's shadow. A partial eclipse is a situation where part of the light is blocked, but some still reaches. The difference in brightness is not very sharp.


MUHAMMAD USED A LUNAR ECLIPSE AND CLAIMED TO HAVE SPLIT THE MOON.

MUHAMMAD USED THE SWORD TO SPREAD ISLAM


WHY DO ALLAH AND MUHAMMAD FORCE PEOPLE TO JOIN ISLAM?


SO, ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF COERCION


What does Islam teach about coercion in religion?


Dear reader,


Muslims have been told to fight against the Unbelievers or kill them or accept joining Muhammad's religion. Islam does not allow believers of other faiths or religions to worship freely. That's why in Arab countries like Arabia in Mecca, there are no churches. Allah does not like freedom of worship.


Surah At-Tawbah 29. *Fight against those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day*, and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful, and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.


Surah Al-Anfal 38. Tell those who have disbelieved [that] if they cease, what has previously occurred will be forgiven for them. But if they return [to hostility] - then the precedent of the former [rebellious] peoples has already taken place.


39. And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah. And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.


Surah At-Tawbah 5. And when the sacred months have passed, then *kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.* But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.


Surah Al-Baqarah 193. And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah. And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.


Surah Al Imran 84. Say, [O believers], "We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him.


MUHAMMAD USED THE SWORD TO SPREAD ISLAM:


Muhammad's peaceful efforts to spread Islam failed miserably. For 13 years, Muhammad had only 100 followers, most of whom were his relatives. After failing badly to spread Islam peacefully, Muhammad changed his strategy and revealed these above verses to coerce people to join his religion, or else they would face severe consequences, even death. He told his followers that Allah commanded him to compel people to join his religion of Islam.


In his later years, before his death, Muhammad no longer cared whether people joined or not, but he forced everyone to join Islam by threatening death. This included his greatest enemy, Abu Sufyan, and his wife Hind. According to Islamic history, Abu Sufyan went to Muhammad seeking peace after Muhammad's intense hatred, but Muhammad forced him to join Islam, threatening to kill him otherwise. The exact words Muhammad told him were, "Submit and bear witness that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger or refuse and you will have your head cut off." Read the Testimony in Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 814. So Abu Sufyan agreed.


MUHAMMAD INVADED MECCA WITH THE SWORD:

The entire city of Mecca betrayed the command, when Muhammad invaded with his group. Many refused but were forced to convert to Islam, and those who refused were beheaded by Muhammad himself.


Others were expelled from Mecca after the last pilgrimage. Read Quran 9:5. Christians and Jews who were in Arabia at that time also faced this ordeal of Muhammad forcing them to join Islam or be killed. Many were given only one choice: to join Islam or be expelled from their lands. Read Sahih Muslim 19:4366.


Before he died, Muhammad sent his armies to force the Arab Pagans to join him, the tribe of al-Harith. He told them they had only one choice to join him or he would kill them all with the sword. But that pagan tribe was afraid and joined him. Later Muhammad cursed all Christians and Jews. Read Sahih Bukhari 8:427.


According to al-Shafi: "The Ordinances of the Quran", Muhammad forced people to join him or he killed those who refused. Read Bukhari 53:386.


Furthermore, Abu Bakr, who took over after Muhammad, conducted even worse Jihad in neighboring countries against those who refused Islam. In a letter sent to the Persians, Abu Bakr said, "Submit and become Muslims, then you will be safe, but if you refuse then know that I have come to you with an army of men that love death just as you love life."


These attributes of Muhammad are now seen in groups like Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab. Evidence of this culture also exists in ISIS, who have killed millions in Syria. Even in Africa, in Nigeria, Boko Haram has been at the forefront of implementing Muhammad's order to kill Christians. Their Muslim followers believe that doing so fulfills Allah's wishes and they will be rewarded in the Hereafter. Bukhari 52:254.


Muhammad also forced Jews to pay JIZYA. Allegedly, because they refused to join his religion. This was a method of hurting and tormenting the Jews, so they would join Islam, Muhammad's religion. Bukhari and Ahmad (5114 or 4869, depending on the Tafsir).


One thing you must understand is that, in Islam, actions are more important than belief in Allah. Even today, if you go to countries with a majority of Muslims, they do not like the presence of other beliefs or religions. For example, Saudi Arabia, Zanzibar, Somalia, etc.


Finally, Abu Sufyan's son, Muawiyah, succeeded in defeating and killing Muhammad's foster son, Ali. He also poisoned Hassan, one of Muhammad's beloved grandsons. Abu Sufyan's grandson named Yazid became Caliph and he was the leader of Muhammad's grandson, Hussein.


This is Islam and how it forces people to join it, unlike Christianity, which does not force people, but teaches about Jesus. In Christianity, there is no coercion as in the Islam of Muhammad.


1. Which God is this who uses Swords to force people to join him?

2. Which God is this who kills people and claims that it is the way to the Hereafter?

3. Why is there no coercion in the Bible?

4. Why are there no Prophets in Christianity who use Swords and Knives to force people to join Christianity as in Islam?

5. Why in Christianity, their God does not have such great hatred as the Allah of Islam?


Today we have learned that in Islam, there is coercion unlike in Christianity. Furthermore, Allah is not the Jehovah God of the Bible, because their actions are completely different. Therefore, it is not wrong to say that Adam, Abraham, David, Jesus, and the prophets in the Bible were not Muslims and did not worship Allah

MUHAMMAD AND ALLAH FAILED TO SHOW US THE BOOK REVEALED TO IBRAHIM


SO, MUHAMMAD AND ALLAH ARE JUST DECEIVERS

SO, THE QURAN IS FAKE AND FULL OF GREAT DOUBT


Dear reader,


Surah Al-Baqarah 136. Say, [O believers], "We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him."


Allah tells Muhammad's followers to say they believe in what was revealed to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, along with other prophets.


Now then, if Allah speaks the truth and Muhammad is his messenger, I would like people to tell us and bring us a copy of the book that was revealed to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.


Continue to hold on to your lies, Muhammad and your Allah.


Surah Al-A'la

18. Indeed, this is in the former scriptures,

19. The scriptures of Abraham and Moses.


Allah says in Surah Al-A'la verse 19 that he revealed a book to Abraham.


QUESTION: Tell us what book was revealed to Abraham and where is its copy and what is its name?


Muhammad, the prophet of Allah, has been falsely attributing lies to Allah without knowing, by claiming that Allah has revealed only four books:


1. Torah - Moses

2. Psalms - David

3. Gospel - Jesus, son of Mary

4. Quran - Muhammad


That's why I continue to say that Islam is a religion of fabrication, not of Jehovah.

QUESTIONS OF CHRIST DENIERS ABOUT THE DIVINITY OF JESUS


THEY WILL ASK THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: -


(1) Why does Jesus talk about himself going to his Father and his God? If he is God?


[John 20:17]


Answer:


Our God is one in three persons. The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. And these are not three gods but one [1 John 5:8-9]. These three persons are one God.


The Bible says in Jeremiah 32:27: -


"Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh......".


And for that reason, Jesus called the Father his God when he was in the form of a man because he had taken on flesh on earth.


Jesus has two natures, divinity, and humanity, together.


Jesus, as God, has no God over him. But in his second nature of humanity, the Father becomes his God.

————

(2) Why does he pray to the Father as his God? If he himself is God?


[John 17:1; Matthew 27:46]


Answer:


He prayed to the Father as his God when he was in the form of a man who had taken on flesh on earth. That's it. So when he was in trouble, he learned to rely on God in prayer to set an example for us to follow in his footsteps. [Read Hebrews 5:7]

————

(3) He said they should know you the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent (John 17:3). If he is God, why differentiate himself from God and claim to be sent?


Answer:


The Bible says by nature, God is not a man [Hosea 11:9].


And for that reason, Jesus in that verse differentiated himself from God because he stood in the nature of his humanity when he was a man. The Bible says when he was a man, he did not consider equality with God something to be used to his advantage [Philippians 2:6, 8].


Jesus, as a man, is our greatest apostle and prophet, our great high priest, the Son of God [Hebrews 3:1].


But Jesus in Spirit is God just as much as he is the Father. They are no different [John 10:30-33; John 14:7-9]

————

(4) Why did he say the Father is greater than he is? If he himself is God?


[John 14:28]


Answer:


The Bible says in Job 33:12: - "....For God is greater than man".


Man cannot be above God.


And for that reason, when Jesus said the Father is greater than him. He said so with humility when he was a man who had taken on flesh here on earth [Philippians 2:6-8].


But Jesus in Spirit is God just as much as the Father is. They are both equal [John 5:19-.23; John 14:7-9]. All three persons of God are equal even though they work humbly. For example, Jesus glorifies the Father, and the Father glorifies Jesus. They both glorify each other [John 13:31-32; John 17:1, 4-5]. Jesus calls the Father greater than himself. And the Father calls Jesus his shepherd and fellow man [Zechariah 13:7]. These are the three persons of God working humbly, although they all have equal authority and equal power.


These names Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are just names aimed at distinguishing these persons according to their work. And it is not that one person is greater than another.


————


(5) When Jesus was on the cross, he said, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabaktani? That is, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? [Matthew 27:45-46]. So if Jesus is God, why would he say his God if he himself is God?


Answer:


Yes. Jesus said so when he was a man who had taken on flesh.


Jesus is all in all, he is fully God and fully man.

It is important to be able to distinguish the role of the divinity of Jesus from the humanity of Jesus. They are two different things although they are within one person.


Titus 2:13-14: - "While we look forward to that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good".


"JESUS ​​CHRIST IS GOD AND THE SAVIOR OF HUMANITY".


God bless everyone who reads this message by 

believing in this truth.


Shalom

ALLAH REVEALED VERSES AND SWORE BY JESUS CHRIST HIS GREAT GOD


First, let's learn the meaning of swearing so that we can understand why Allah swore by Jehovah.

What does it mean to swear?


Swearing, or taking an oath, means to affirm, using the name of Almighty God, that something being sworn – and which lacks clear evidence - is true and correct as claimed by the one taking the oath, and therefore it must be believed because the Ultimate Guarantor is Almighty God, the Only Knower of the truth or falsehood of hidden matters!


In a Hadith narrated by Abdullah bin `Umar R.A.A. and reported by Al-Bukhari, "Verily, Allah prohibits you from swearing by your fathers. So, whoever has to take an oath, should swear by Allah or remain silent."


Now let's read about Allah, who is not Jehovah "Yahweh," who does he swear by?


Qur'an 91:1-7 Suratul Ash-Shams (The Sun)

By the sun and its brightness. And by the moon as it follows it. And by the day as it displays the sun's [radiance]. And by the night as it conceals it. And [by] the sky and He who constructed it. And [by] the earth and He who spread it. And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it.


Qur'an 92:1-3 Suratul Al-Layl (The Night)

By the night when it covers. And [by] the day when it appears. And [by] He who created the male and female.


Here we see Allah, worshiped by Muslims, swearing by the sky and the One who created it, by the earth and the One who spread it.


Who is the One who spread the earth and constructed the sky?


This means Allah swears by Him. Your answer is, God Jehovah created male and female, God Jehovah created the sky and the earth, but Allah swears by the One who created the sky and the earth and created male and female. Allah swears by Jehovah, the God of Christians.


Who Created Male and Female?


Qur'an 92:1-3

1. By the night when it covers, 2 and [by] the day when it appears, 3. and [by] He who created the male and female...


Does a person who swears by another become God or a human?


Who is the Creator here? Because Allah swears by the Creator, and creation is a characteristic of God. So, Allah did not create.


Who is this Creator of Male and Female that Allah of Islam swears by?

Continue reading...from the Holy Bible....


Jeremiah 27: 5 I have made the earth, the man, and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm; and I give it unto whom it seemeth meet unto me.


Now we read Jehovah, the God of the Bible, saying that He created everything, including Male and Female, which Allah of Islam swears by. Therefore, Jehovah created male and female, and Allah of Islam swears by Him, so determine for yourself who is God?


Can God Swear by Another? Continue to gain knowledge...


Hebrews 6:13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself,


Jehovah says there is no one greater for Him to swear by, but Allah in the Quran says he swears by the One who created male and female.


So today we understand that the Creator is Jehovah and Allah swears by Jehovah, the God of the Bible and Christians.


God bless you all

MUHAMMAD AND MUSLIMS ASTOUNDED AFTER REALIZING JESUS WAS NOT A MUSLIM

 Saturday, July 23, 2016

BIBLICAL AND QURANIC EVIDENCE:


Muslim believers have often claimed that Jesus was a Muslim. These claims have been made in their religious sermons without substantial evidence to support their claims.


Today, I will respond to these claims using the Bible and the Quran as follows:


JESUS NEVER DECLARED THE SHAHADA

According to Islamic law, for one to be a Muslim, they must declare the shahada. Jesus did not say the SHAHADA (La ilaha illallah), and there is no biblical or Quranic evidence that Jesus said the SHAHADA. Therefore, Jesus was not a Muslim.


JESUS DID NOT WORSHIP ALLAH

Jesus never prayed to or worshipped "Allah," but according to the Bible, Jesus prayed to His Father, John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: The Quran and Islam acknowledge that Allah is not the Father, and there is not a single verse that calls Allah Father. Jesus was not a Muslim.


JESUS DID NOT PRAY FACING MECCA

Jesus never prostrated himself facing Mecca, a requirement in praying to or worshipping "ALLAH." Quran 2:149. Whencesoever thou comest forth turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship; and wheresoever ye may be (O Muslims) turn your faces toward it (when ye pray) so that men may have no argument against you save such of them as do injustice - Fear them not, but fear Me! - and so that I may complete My grace upon you, and that ye may be guided. 150. Whencesoever ye cometh forth turn your face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship. And wheresoever ye may be (O Muslims) turn your faces toward it so that people shall have no accusation against you, except such of them as do wrong; fear them not, but fear Me; and that I may complete My favor upon you, and that ye may be guided aright.


Now let's read about how Jesus prayed in the Bible. Where did He look while praying?

Jesus prayed looking up to Heaven. Read: Mark 6:41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

In the above verse, we have evidence that Jesus looked up to Heaven where His Father is, and not towards Mecca.


JESUS DID NOT TEACH ABOUT THE KAABA

Jesus never mentioned or taught His disciples about the "KAABA," which is done by Muslims and was taught by Muhammad, the prophet of Allah.


JESUS DID NOT FAST DURING RAMADAN

Jesus did not fast during Ramadan, which is part of Islam to fast during Ramadan every year. Quran 2:183, O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you, as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint.


There is not a single part in the Bible where we read that Jesus commanded His followers to fast every year, but we read that in Matthew 6:16-18: Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.


JESUS DID NOT ENGAGE IN JIHAD

Jesus did not engage in Jihad as every Muslim is commanded to engage in Jihad. Quran 2:216. Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that ye hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that ye love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, ye know not.


But Jesus said the following about fighting: John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.


In the above verse, Jesus teaches us that His Kingdom is not of this world but Heaven, so He cannot engage in Jihad as Allah commands Muslims. Jesus was not a Muslim, and He did not engage in Jihad.


JESUS SAID TO LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, WHILE ALLAH SAYS HATE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS

Jesus did not hate those who opposed Him, but He loved them and prayed for them, contrary to Allah's commands to Muslims. Read Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.


Now let's see how Allah shows hatred towards His followers. Quran 5:51. O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.


JESUS DID NOT TEACH TO STONE ADULTERERS

Jesus did not stone people to death, nor did He teach that adulterers should be stoned, as is taught in the Islamic religion. Read John 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.


But in Islam, we read about Muhammad ordering the stoning of an adulterer: Volume 2, Book 23, Number 413: Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:


A Jew brought to the Prophet two men who had committed sodomy with each other. The Prophet ordered both of them to be killed near the place of offering the funeral prayers beside the mosque.


Therefore, Jesus was not a Muslim, and He did not stone adulterers, but we read about Muhammad stoning people and teaching the stoning of adulterers in Islam.


JESUS DID NOT TEACH PEOPLE TO PERFORM ABLUTION BEFORE PRAYING

Jesus did not follow the ritual of washing or performing ablution before praying, as Muslims do every day. Read about Jesus in Matthew 15:2-11. But Allah practices the rituals of washing and ablution before worshipping Him. Quran 5:6. O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; Rub your heads (with water); and (


wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity, bathe your whole body. But if ye are ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from offices of nature, or ye have been in contact with women, and ye find no water, then take for yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands, Allah doth not wish to place you in a difficulty, but to make you clean, and to complete his favour to you, that ye may be grateful.


Jesus did not perform ablution before praying to His Father, as is in Islam. Jesus was not a Muslim.


JESUS DID NOT USE THE TERMS "SAW" OR "PBUH"

Jesus did not instruct people to write abbreviations "SAW" (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) or "PBUH" (Peace Be Upon Him) after mentioning their names, unlike Allah and His Prophet who teach to say this in Islam after mentioning the names of Prophets and Messengers.


Dear readers, today we have read about Jesus and His character and teachings, all of which contradict the laws and customs of Islam.


It is my hope that this journal will help you understand that Jesus did not follow Islamic customs and did not worship Allah.

God bless you greatly

IS THERE A SABBATH IN THE NEW COVENANT?


The Bible says that in these last days, there will be perilous times.


Some will depart from the faith, listening to deceitful spirits and teachings that go against the truth [2 Timothy 3:1; 1 Timothy 4:1]. In these days we live in, we are surrounded by "DISCIPLES OF MOSES" [John 8:28-29], who, by emphasizing the worship of Saturday and keeping the Sabbath, teach that all who worship on Sunday are lost, and they bear the mark of the beast "666".


They teach that abandoning the Sabbath and worshiping on Sunday was established by Constantine together with the Catholic Church.


It is important then, as disciples of Jesus, to learn all about this matter so that we can earnestly contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints [Jude 1:3].


We will divide this subject into five parts:-


(1). INTRODUCTION TO THE SABBATH.

(2). THE ABOLISHMENT OF THE SABBATH.

(3). THE SABBATH, A SHADOW OF JESUS CHRIST.

(4). REASONS WHY CHRISTIANS WORSHIP ON SUNDAY.

(5). KEEPING A DAY IS NOT A WAY OF SALVATION.


*1) INTRODUCTION TO THE SABBATH*


*1. THE MEANING OF THE WORD SABBATH.*


The word "Sabbath" comes from the Hebrew word "SHABBATH," which means REST or CEASING FROM WORK.


This rest is not necessarily on the seventh day. In some instances, people were commanded to have a Sabbath on the first day and the eighth day [Leviticus 23:39], and they also had a Sabbath on the seventh day of every week [Exodus 20:8-11].


There was also a Sabbath of a whole year for the land. It was not allowed to farm the land in that year; the land was supposed to rest [Leviticus 25:2-5]. Anyone who claims today that they are keeping the law by observing the Sabbath must not farm or harvest every seventh year, otherwise, they have failed in all [James 2:10].


*2. THE BEGINNING OF THE COMMAND TO KEEP THE SABBATH AND ITS PURPOSE*


The first command for people to keep the Sabbath was given by God to the Israelites, through Moses, in the OLD COVENANT. This command was not given to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and others before Moses [Deuteronomy 5:1-3,12-14].


*This command was also for the NATION of Israel only!* Not for other nations that were not given the law [Romans 2:14; Deuteronomy 4:7-10]. THE ISRAELITES were commanded to keep the Sabbath for the following purposes:-


(a). To remember how they were slaves in the land of Egypt and how the LORD God brought them out of slavery and gave them REST from the labor of slavery [Deuteronomy 5:15].


(b). To be a SIGN of their covenant with God, the old covenant [Exodus 31:12-13,16-17; Ezekiel 20:20]. *This covenant is referred to as "ETERNAL" not in the sense that it is endless*. Not everywhere in the Bible where "ETERNAL" is used does it mean without end.


ETERNAL COVENANT here means a covenant of a very long time to come. [Examples: A house to be confirmed "forever" [Leviticus 25:29-30]; A person to be a servant of someone "forever" [Deuteronomy 15:12-17]; Leprosy to be "forever" [2 Kings 5:25-27].


*3. THE ACCOMPANYING SERVICE OF DEATH FOR NOT KEEPING THE SABBATH.*


The command to keep the Sabbath was a strict one. Anyone who did not keep the Sabbath was given the service of death, THEY WERE KILLED [Exodus 31:14-15, 35:2-3]. Even a mother who tried to gather firewood to cook for her children on the Sabbath was stoned to death [Numbers 15:32-36].


A person was not allowed to walk a mile on the Sabbath. The "Sabbath day's journey" allowed so that one is not counted as having worked was just under a mile, like the distance from Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives [Acts 1:12].


Even carrying a mattress was breaking the law of keeping the Sabbath [John 5:8-10].


Even healing on the Sabbath was breaking the law of keeping the Sabbath [Luke 13:14].


It was a service of punishment, a service of death! [2 Corinthians 3:7-9].


*The disciples of Moses today,* who claim to keep the Sabbath, should not go to the hospital on the Sabbath, nor seek healing in any way on the Sabbath, and among them, anyone who does not keep the Sabbath should be killed! Why don't they do these things?


*(2) THE CESSATION OF THE SABBATH.*


Man was not created for the Sabbath, but for God who is the LORD of the Sabbath or the founder of the Sabbath. God, who brought the command to keep the Sabbath, also has the right to end it or remove that command, and no one has the right to blame Him [Mark 2:27-28].


Early in prophecy, before the coming of Jesus Christ, it was predicted that God would end the Sabbath [Hosea 2:11]. Jesus Christ came to fulfill the law by ending the Sabbath.


Our chief leader of salvation, Jesus Christ, openly opposed every Jewish idea of keeping the Sabbath. He came to end the Sabbath by breaking it.


If Jesus is our Lord, then we too should be at the forefront of following Him as an example and breaking the Sabbath [Mark 2:23-28; Luke 6:6-11; 13:10-16; 14:1-6; John 5:8,18; 9:13-16]. Jesus Christ, nailed the accusation of not keeping the Sabbath to the cross, abolished it, let it no longer exist! [Colossians 2:13-14].


*Keeping days, months, times, and years is a return to WEAK AND IMPERFECT TEACHINGS [Galatians 4:9-11].*


We should no longer be judged by ANYONE because of the SABBATH! [Colossians 2:13-16]. To get a good translation of the word "Sabbath" in that passage, read the King James Version Bible, which mentions "SABBATH DAYS" (Colossians 2:16) "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days." So, let no one judge us concerning Sabbath days.


The fourth commandment of the Sabbath in the Ten Commandments is not in the New Covenant, neither Jesus nor the apostles commanded us to keep the Sabbath [Matthew 19:16-19; Acts 15:1-29]. Like the time before Moses, we, as descendants of Abraham by faith, were not commanded to keep the Sabbath as Ibrahimu was not commanded!


The New Commandment has become instead of the Old Covenant, which was deficient, which had a service of punishment or death. *That service has been repealed [2 Corinthians 3:6-11; Hebrews 8:6-9,13].*


*(3) THE SABBATH, A SHADOW OF JESUS CHRIST.*


The Sabbath was a shadow of things to come [Colossians 2:16-17].


The Sabbath was only a shadow of REST that humans troubled and overwhelmed with burdens would find by going to Jesus Christ [Matthew 11:28]. After coming himself as REST, Jesus Christ; we no longer need to keep the shadow. If we hold on to Jesus Christ, HE will also give us an ETERNAL SABBATH in heaven [Hebrews 4:8-11]. This Sabbath is not on Saturday because those who will diligently enter that rest and stay away from disobeying Jesus will enter [Hebrews 4:1-11; Revelation 14:13]


*(4) REASONS FOR CHRISTIANS TO WORSHIP ON SUNDAY*


There is no scripture in the New Testament that records a gathering of Christians on the Sabbath to worship God.


The word "Sabbath" appears 60 times in the New Testament. Fifty times in these, it is used BEFORE the New Covenant itself was made with the blood of Jesus. Of the remaining ten times, six (6) mention Paul preaching to JEWS in NON-CHRISTIAN gatherings on their Jewish sabbaths [Acts 13:14, 42, 44; 17:1,2;18:4]. Twice, the word describes the law of Moses being read by the Jews in the synagogues [Acts 13:27; 15:21]; Once it tells us how we should not be judged concerning the Sabbath [Colossians 2:16]; The remaining one mentions the Sabbath day's journey [Acts 1:12].


SUNDAY, which is the first day of the week, THE LORD'S DAY, when He conquered death and rose again [Revelation 1:10], We set apart specially to worship the Lord because: -


( a ). It is the feast of the first fruits of the harvest, which was done in the Old Covenant, on the SECOND DAY after the Sabbath; It is a prophecy of Christ who is their FIRST FRUITS who have fallen asleep [Leviticus 23:9-14; 1 Corinthians 15:20].


( b ). It is the victorious day of our Lord Jesus who rose from the dead, and revealed himself to his disciples after the resurrection of Jesus [John 20:1,19,26 Romans 10:9].


( c ). The day the Holy Spirit, the Chief Observer of all of God's work in the church, came, was the day of Pentecost, which is Sunday, the second day after the Sabbath [Acts 2:1].


( d ) The day of Pentecost Sunday is the first day when the first church began preaching and 3,000 people were saved and the first church service began [Acts 2].


( e ). The Christians of the first church gathered on Sunday [Acts 20:6-12; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2].


*These reasons clearly also show that the worship of Sunday was not initiated by King Constantine or the Catholic Church.*


There is no scripture that says anyone who worships on Sunday has the mark of the beast 666. That is a fabrication. The Bible gives us the freedom to choose the day to honor the Lord [Romans 14:5-6]. It is also important to note that every day is a day to learn the Word [Acts 17:11; 2:46].


*(5) KEEPING DAYS IS NOT A WAY TO BE SAVED*


Keeping any day, even Sunday, is not a way to be saved. We are saved by believing that Jesus is the LORD and SAVIOR and not by keeping any day [Romans 10:9-10,13].


There are many blessings for anyone who shares this message on Facebook, Twitter, etc., with relatives, friends, and acquaintances so that they too can have the opportunity to read this message and be blessed as you have been. The blessings of God will be with you.

ALLAH CUT MUHAMMAD'S MAIN ARTERY

SO ALLAH DID NOT LOVE THE LATE MUHAMMAD


**Who killed Muhammad?**


This question has many answers as he had many enemies, including pagans, Jews, and even Christians due to his conquests, killing people, raping their wives, and enslaving their women. Indeed, Muhammad had many enemies.


- **How was he killed?** There are many possible ways: some could have used poison, others a knife, a club, or pushing him off a cliff, etc.


- **What is interesting is that the Quran tells us how Allah would have killed Muhammad.**


**Quran 69:44-46**


44. And if he (Muhammad) had forged a false saying concerning us,


45. We surely would have seized him by his right hand,


46. Then We would certainly have cut off his life artery (Aorta).


Let's see some interpretations of this verse as translated by various scholars.


**Quran 69:44-46**  

- If he (Muhammad) had forged a false saying concerning us, We would surely have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might), and then certainly should have cut off his life artery (Aorta). (Hilal-Khan)


And if (Muhammad) had invented lies against Us, We would certainly have seized him by the right hand, then We would certainly have cut off his life artery. (Pickthall)


Had he invented lies concerning Us, we would have seized him by the right hand and severed his heart's vein. (Dawood)


If he had fabricated against Us, some of the sayings, We should certainly have seized him by the right hand, then We would certainly have cut off his Aorta. (Shakir)


- **All these interpretations mean the same thing.**


Therefore, according to the Quran, if Muhammad had fabricated revelations, Allah would have killed him by cutting his life artery (Aorta).


**Now let's see what the Hadith says about Muhammad being poisoned by a Jewish woman.**


**Sahih Al-Bukhari 2617**  

A Jewess brought a poisoned (cooked) sheep for the prophet who ate from it. She was brought to the Prophet and was asked, "Shall we kill her?" He said, "No". Anas added: "I continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of Allah's Messenger."


Translation:  

A Jewish woman brought poisoned cooked meat to the Prophet, who ate from it. She was brought to the Prophet and questioned, "Shall we kill her?" The Prophet said, "No". Anas added, "I continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of Allah's Messenger."


**Sahih Muslim 5430**  

A Jewess came to Allah's Messenger with poisoned mutton, and he took of what had been brought to him. (When the effect of this poison was felt by him), he called for her and asked her about that, whereupon she said: "I had determined to kill you." Thereupon he said: "Allah will never give you the power to do it."


Translation:  

A Jewish woman came to Allah's Messenger with poisoned mutton, and he took what was brought to him. (When he felt the effect of this poison), he called for her and asked her, whereupon she said: "I had determined to kill you." Thereupon he said: "Allah will never give you the power to do it."


**You see? Muhammad confidently tells the woman that Allah will not allow her to kill him, but unfortunately, the poison killed him. Why did the woman want to kill Muhammad?**


**The answer to this question is found in the Hadith of Ibn Sa'd, Volume 2, pp. 251-252**


The Apostle of Allah sent for Zaynab bint Al-Harith and said to her: "What induced you to do what you have done?" She replied: "You have done to my people what you have done. You have killed my father, my uncle, and my husband, so I said to myself, if you are a prophet, the foreleg will inform you; and others have said: if you are a king, we will get rid of you."


The Prophet of God sent for Zaynab bint Al-Harith and said to her, "What made you do what you did?" She replied, "You have done to my people what you have done. You killed my father, my uncle, and my husband, so I said to myself, if you are a prophet, the foreleg will inform you; and others have said, if you are a king, we will get rid of you."


**Ibn Sa'd, Volume 2, pp. 251-252**


So you see, the woman killed Muhammad because he had killed her family. However, Zaynab was not alone in this; she had a partner in the plot.


**Sahih Al-Bukhari 4428**  

The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, "O Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison."


Translation:  

The Prophet, in his ailment in which he died, used to say, "O Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison."


**Sunan Abu Dawud 4498**  

A Jewess presented (Muhammad) at Khaibar with a roasted sheep which she had poisoned. The Apostle of Allah ate of it, and the people also ate. He then said: "Lift your hands (from eating), for it has informed me that it is poisoned." Bishr al-Bara b. Ma'rur al-Ansari died. So he (the Prophet) sent for the Jewess (and said to her): "What motivated you to do the work you have done?" She said: "If you were a prophet, it would not harm you; but if you were a king, I would rid the people of you." The Apostle of Allah then ordered regarding her, and she was killed. He then said about the pain of which he died: "I continued to feel pain from the morsel which I had eaten at Khaibar. This is the time when it has cut off my aorta."


Translation:  

A Jewish woman presented poisoned roasted sheep to Muhammad at Khaibar. The Apostle of Allah ate from it, and the people also ate. He then said: "Lift your hands (from eating), for it has informed me that it is poisoned." Bishr al-Bara b. Ma'rur al-Ansari died. So he (the Prophet) sent for the Jewess and asked her, "What motivated you to do the work you have done?" She said: "If you were a prophet, it would not harm you; but if you were a king, I would rid the people of you." The Apostle of Allah then ordered her to be killed. He then said about the pain from which he died: "I continued to feel pain from the morsel I had eaten at Khaibar. This is the time when it has cut off my aorta."


**You start to get the picture here. Did anyone in the Quran say they would cut Muhammad's main artery?**


**Quran 69:44-46**


44. And if he (Muhammad) had forged a false saying concerning us,


45. We surely would have seized him by his right hand,


46. Then We would certainly have cut off his life artery (Aorta).


**You see? You can connect the dots here.**


We have also seen one of Muhammad's companions, Bishr b. Al-Bara b. Ma'rur al-Ansar, dying after eating the poison.


But before he died, he told Muhammad that as soon as he put the piece of meat in his mouth, he felt the poison, but he continued to eat because he saw the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, eating.


**Ibn Sa'd, Volume 2, pp. 252-252**  

The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, took the foreleg, a piece of which he put into his mouth. Bishr ibn al-Bara took another bone and put it into his mouth. When the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, ate one morsel of it, Bishr ate his, and other people also ate from it. Then the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: "Hold back your hands! Because this foreleg; and according to another version, the shoulder of the goat, has informed me that it is poisoned." Thereupon Bishr said: "By Him who hath made you great! I discovered it from the morsel I took. Nothing prevented me from emitting it out, but the idea that I did not like to make your food unappetizing. When you had eaten what was in your mouth, I did not like to save my life after yours, and I also thought you would not have eaten it if there was something wrong." Bishr did not rise from his seat but his color changed to that of Taylsan (a green cloth).


The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, took the foreleg, a piece of which he put into his mouth. Bishr ibn al-Bara took another bone and put it into his mouth. When the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, ate one morsel of it, Bishr ate his, and other people also ate from it. Then the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: "Hold back your hands!

Bishr did not rise from his seat but his color changed to that of Taylsan (a green cloth).


**Ibn Sa'd, Volume 2, pp. 251-252**


So Bishr died because he trusted Muhammad, believing him to be a prophet and thinking he would detect the poison.


Muhammad explained his pain to Bishr's mother.


**Sahih Abu Dawud 4449**  

Umm Bishr said to the Prophet during the illness of which he died: "What do you think about your illness, Apostle of Allah? I do not think about the illness of my son except the poisoned sheep of which he had eaten with you at Khaibar." The Prophet said: "And I do not think about my illness except that. This is the time when it has cut off my aorta."


Translation:  

Umm Bishr said to the Prophet during the illness of which he died: "What do you think about your illness, Apostle of Allah? I do not think about the illness of my son except the poisoned sheep of which he had eaten with you at Khaibar." The Prophet said: "And I do not think about my illness except that. This is the time when it has cut off my aorta."


**At-Tabari, Volume 8, p. 124**  

The messenger of God said during the illness from which he died—the mother of Bishr b. Al-Bara had come to visit him—"Umm Bishr, at this very moment I feel my aorta being severed because of the food I ate with your son at Khaibar."


The messenger of God said during the illness from which he died—the mother of Bishr b. Al-Bara had come to visit him—"Umm Bishr, at this very moment I feel my aorta being severed because of the food I ate with your son at Khaibar."


**At-Tabari, Volume 8, p. 124**


According to his wife Aisha, Muhammad was in severe pain before his death.


**Sunan Ibn Majah 1622**  

Aisha said: "I never saw anyone suffer more pain than the messenger of Allah."


Translation:  

Aisha said: "I never saw anyone suffer more pain than the Messenger of Allah."


**Sunan Ibn Majah 1622**


**Sahih Al-Bukhari 2588**  

Aisha said: "When the Prophet became sick and his condition became serious, he requested his wives to allow him to be treated in my house, and they allowed him. He came out leaning on two men while his feet were dragging on the ground."


Translation:  

Aisha said: "When the Prophet became sick and his condition became serious, he requested his wives to allow him to be treated in my house, and they allowed him. He came out leaning on two men while his feet were dragging on the ground."


**Sahih Al-Bukhari 2588**


Now, since the Quran says that if Muhammad had been a false prophet, Allah would cut his main artery, and Muhammad admitted that his main artery (Aorta) was cut, we can conclude that Muhammad was not a true prophet.


You might also wonder about Muhammad's judgment in accepting food from someone whose relatives he had killed.


If Muhammad did not have the common sense to avoid food from someone whose family members he had killed, can he be trusted in anything he says?


Moreover, Zaynab tested Muhammad, believing that if he was a true prophet, he would not die from the poison, but if he was a false prophet, he would die. Muhammad failed this test.


Additionally, Muhammad's friend Bishr tasted the meat and realized it was poisoned but continued to eat because he saw Muhammad eating and trusted him.


Lastly, when the Jews tried to kill Jesus, Allah intervened and saved him.


**Quran 4:157-158**


157. And for saying, "We killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah." But they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.


158. Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.


It's remarkable that Allah saved Jesus from the Jews but allowed Muhammad to be killed by a single Jewish woman.


In conclusion, Muhammad wanted to die as a martyr in battle but died from poison given by a woman.


**Sahih Bukhari 2797**


"By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Allah's cause and then be resurrected and then be martyred, and then be resurrected again and then be martyred, and then be resurrected again and then be martyred."


Translation:  

"By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Allah's cause and then be resurrected and then be martyred, and then be resurrected again and then be martyred, and then be resurrected again and then be martyred."


**Sahih Bukhari 2797**


Unfortunately, Muhammad died from poison given by a woman.


Remember, Muhammad received revelations from Allah whenever he needed them, whether it was meeting Aisha, marrying four wives, or marrying his adopted son's wife. Allah always fulfilled Muhammad's desires.


Here, I am laying the foundation by looking at the surrounding details in the Quran. Later, I will start revealing the hidden teachings within the Quran. This journey will be long and requires great patience.


I am not engaging in religious debates but trying to show you how Muhammad died and who killed him.


Unlike what your religious leaders tell you to control your thoughts, this is about freeing your mind if you receive it with an open heart.

MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS, WAS SHE AARON AND MOSES' SISTER?

*THIS IS A GREAT TRAGEDY FOR MUSLIMS**


**Contradictions in the Quran:**


Mary, Aaron and Moses' sister, and the daughter of Amram, who lived 1600 years before the birth of Jesus in the Bible, is claimed to be the mother of Isa in the Quran. Are these claims true?


In several Surahs, the Quran confuses Mary, the mother of Isa [Miriam in Hebrew], with Miriam, the sister of Aaron and Moses, and the daughter of Amram, who lived about 1600 years earlier.


Finally, she (Mary) brought him (the baby) to her people, carrying him. They said, "O Mary! Indeed, you have brought a thing unprecedented. O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste."

-- Surah 19:27-28

And Mary, daughter of Imran...

-- Surah 66:12


I understand what Muslims claim to be the solution to this problem. Yusuf Ali, for example, writes in his footnote 2481, explaining the above verse: “Aaron, the brother of Moses, was the first in the line of Israelite priests. 'Sisters of Aaron' or 'daughters of Imran (who was the father of Aaron).'”


This is a misconception. Only Aaron was made a priest of the Lord and indeed the first High Priest. Only Aaron's descendants became priests. Neither Moses nor their sister Miriam are ever understood to be in the "priestly line." Amram is certainly not a priest. If Mary's lineage as part of the priestly family was to be emphasized, she must be called the daughter of Aaron since all the priests of Israel are descendants of Aaron, while his siblings are not counted among the priestly line.


I acknowledge that the terms "father," "daughter," and "sister" can sometimes be used loosely to indicate a general family relationship. Therefore, we must carefully read each mention to see what it means. The Quran makes it clear that the specific, physical meaning of daughter and (therefore) sister is intended in this matter, as I will show below. Even if there was no concern about the issue of "priesthood" and a broader family relationship was viewed, why does the Quran not say "daughter of Aaron," who is more famous? Although the term "sister" can be used more broadly than a sister in a close family, isn't it standard usage even in Islam that "brothers and sisters" live in nearly the same generation (like cousins) while "father and daughter" indicate a generational difference between the two? Why call her the sister of the famous Aaron (1400 years older than Mary) instead of the daughter of `Imran (Biblically Amram), whose only mention is in genealogical tables in Exodus 6 and 1 Chronicles 23? This seems clear that the two Miriams were indeed confused. But attempts to harmonize seem not very logical.


The above points are only some of the "smaller questions." The larger problem is that the Quran clearly does not speak of a broad genealogical relationship as we see in the following verse.


Remember! The wife of Imran said: "O my Lord! I dedicate to You what is in my womb for Your service... When she delivered, she said: "O my Lord! I have delivered a female child!" "... And I have named her Mary..."

-- Surah 3:35-36


Muslims are generally very precise about who is the wife of whom, and it is certainly not allowed that anyone can just make love to a woman because she is "more his sister." If Mary is a female child from the womb of the wife of `Imran, then she is directly the daughter of Imran and there is no doubt that the theory of a "distant lineage" is contradicted by the Quran itself.


Yusuf Ali in his footnote 375 to Surah 3:35 even goes further by concocting (?) a second Imran by claiming that “by tradition, Mary's mother was called Hanna... and her father was called Imran,” to somehow save the Quran from this conflict. But the same tradition that names Mary's mother as Hanna also names her father as Joachim. Why does Yusuf Ali accept one part of this tradition (e.g., in the Proto-Evangelion of James the Less) and reject another?


Yusuf Ali provides no reference for this "tradition" he refers to. Until I see any reference for this, there is no reason to accept this theory. To my current knowledge, there was no such tradition preceding Muhammad. Some Islamic commentators may have created something later to explain this very issue, but a late theory/"tradition" is not very reliable.


And a final question:

Is there any other instance in the Quran where someone is repeatedly called the daughter [son] or sister [brother] of people who are more distant relatives?


Even if there were one such name in the lineage that was so strong that everyone is referred to in relation to that one person, it is doubly unlikely that anyone would be called in relation to two distant relatives instead of "father" and "brother," and never mentioned in relation to their actual parents or siblings. If this is the only instance, then the explanations of Muslims become more difficult since emergency explanations, i.e., explanations that have no purpose other than to explain this one problem but are not used elsewhere, are not very reliable. It appears like a makeshift argument in this case. And the fact that Aaron is the son of Imran and this is a direct and correct genealogical relationship also shows that all others are understood as daughter and sister in the usual, everyday meaning.


Thomas Patrick Hughes in his book "A Dictionary of Islam," page 328, writes on this issue that "it certainly is the cause of some perplexity for commentators. Al-Baidawi says she was called `sister of Aaron' because she was of the tribe of Levi; but Husein says that the Aaron mentioned in the verse is not the same person as the brother of Moses."


As usual, conflicting explanations are evidence that there is indeed a problem in the Quran and no clear and satisfactory solution is found.


Note: Moses and Aaron are called "Moses ibn `Imran" and "Aaron ibn `Imran" in the Hadith, just as Mary is called "Maryam ibnat `Imran" in Surah 66:12.

A BOOK FULL OF CONTRADICTIONS, WITHOUT DIRECTION OR LOGICAL FLOW

When we quote a verse with contradictions, hatred, or exposing the lies of Muslims in the Qur'an, Muslims vehemently deny it, claiming that the verse is incomplete unless we read the verse preceding or following it. 


So let's look at these verses written in the sequence of numbers 191, 192, 193, 194, and 195 to see if they indeed build a logical argument. You will be surprised by the Qur'an, which is claimed to be a good guide for Muslims.


**NOTE:** My explanations are in brackets (…).


**QUR’AN: Surah Al-Baqarah 2:191-195:**


**191. And kill them wherever you overtake them, and expel them from wherever they have expelled you; for fitnah (persecution) is worse than killing. And do not fight them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.**


(…if persecution is worse than killing, why then should you kill them? Sometimes it says not to fight them at the Sacred Mosque, and other times to fight them there. Which one is it? Is it the Muslims who retaliate or Allah?)


**192. But if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.**


(…who is being forgiven here, the disbelievers or the Muslims because both have sinned by fighting)


**193. Fight them until there is no more fitnah, and the religion is entirely for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.**


(…but did not Allah say in verse 192 that He is forgiving? How then does He command to fight them (the disbelievers)?)


**194. [Fighting in] the sacred month is for [aggression committed in] the sacred month, and for [all] violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you. And fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.**


(…so attacking someone who attacks you is fearing God? SERIOUSLY????)


**195. And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.**


(…but did not Allah say in verses 191, 193, and 194 to fight them and kill them? How then does He command you not to destroy them with your own hands?)


**EVALUATION:**

The Qur'an is a book full of contradictions, fitnah, hatred, and permission to kill non-Muslims. Its verses lack logical flow. Each verse stands on its own and does not relate to the preceding or following verse. 

In one verse, Allah commands his followers to strike non-Muslims, while in another, he commands them to forgive. Which one should be followed?

Allah is like a bat, chameleon, double-tongued, and centipede—the evidence is in his writings and the behavior of his followers.

ALLAH MAKES A BIG SCIENTIFIC AND GEOGRAPHICAL MISTAKE ABOUT THE SETTING OF THE SUN


Dear reader,


**Zul-Qarnain and the Setting of the Sun in Surah 18:85-86**

Is it true that the sun sets in a spring of muddy or dark water, or is there an error in the Quran, or is there another explanation? First, let's look at the clear meaning of Surah 18:85-86, and then we will look at some Muslim explanations and responses to this issue.


**A Little Astronomy**


It may not be widely known that the Abbasid Muslim rulers, Arabs, and Persians made significant advancements in astronomy, naming many stars, and even correcting some of Ptolemy’s astronomical tables. However, the sun is many times larger than the entire Earth, and the Earth orbits around the sun. The sun does not set in a muddy spring.


**Who is Zul-Qarnain?**

We have no evidence that Muhammad ever told anyone who Zul-Qarnain actually was. Muslims have four different views.


- **Alexander the Great (of Macedonia)**: This is the view held by most Muslims. Zul-Qarnain means "the man with two horns." There is a fabricated legend that Alexander the Great was a god and had two ram's horns growing from the sides of his head. Despite the fact that this wasn't true (and it would be problematic to find a helmet that could fit), this legend was known, and many Muslims think that Allah mentioned Alexander in Surah 18 by this name.

- **Cyrus I of Persia**: This is another view. His kingdom was essentially a dual kingdom of the Medes and Persians, but there is no evidence that the two horns refer to him.

- **A king of Yemen** who wore a helmet with two ram’s horns, is another view held by some Muslims.

- **An unknown person**: This is the fourth view. However, it doesn’t seem very helpful to give an explanation about someone whom the speaker has never heard of.


Conclusion: It doesn’t matter who Zul-Qarnain was. If he discovered that the sun sets in a spring of muddy water, and it doesn’t set in a spring of muddy water, then this is false regardless of who Muhammad was talking about.


**Surah 18 Thoughts and Responses**


**Idea 1: The sun sets in a spring of muddy water!**

For early Muslims, the Quran taught that this actually happens. The early Muslim historian al-Tabari, volume 1, page 234, shows this. Another example is “[Dhu al-Qarnaiyn] saw the setting of the sun in its resting place in a black, muddy spring.” According to al-Tabari volume 5, pages 173-174, Dhu Qarnain [Zul Qarnain] is also found in al-Tabari volume 1, page 371.


Another related thing is that the Earth sits on a large fish according to al-Tabari volume 1, page 220 (839-923 CE).


**Idea 2: The sun appeared to Alexander to set in the lake of Ithaca in Macedonia**


This idea assumes that Zul-Qarnain was Alexander, and that Alexander was a good Muslim. This idea does not fit with the fact that Alexander had a temple built for himself. Additionally, Alexander went to conquer lands northwest of Ithaca, which is modern Albania.


Even worse for this idea, Greeks had settlements hundreds of miles west of Ithaca, including in Spain, Sicily, etc., for at least five hundred years before Alexander. Why would a very intelligent Greek think the sun set in a lake in Macedonia when Greek ships were sailing far west of Alexander’s country? Furthermore, Tertullian in "A Treatise on the Soul" chapter 49, page 227, says that Aristotle, who lived at the same time, mentions a hero from the island of Sardinia far west of Macedonia but about the same latitude.


**Idea 3: The “spring of muddy water” is the Atlantic Ocean**


The Atlantic Ocean is not muddy and not black; it is blue-green. Also, it is not a spring but an ocean. The sun does not set in the ocean. More importantly, Alexander, Cyrus I of Persia, and the kings of Yemen never went to the Atlantic Ocean, and Surah 18:85-86 says Zul Qarnain saw or witnessed this.


Any one of these four reasons is enough to dismiss this idea, so why do some Muslims propose this? This shows the lengths they go to in order to show that Surah 18:1-2 is not false. If the Allah of Islam thought this idea was true in the Quran, and Allah knew this idea was false, then this would be a lie. If the Allah of Islam did not know this fact, they would not have the knowledge and certainly not the power to know everything. If these verses did not come from the Allah of Islam, then the Quran would have an obvious error, as it attributes this falsehood to Allah when it was not so. Of course, if the Allah of Islam does not really exist, and the true God is not the author of the Quran, then the Allah of Islam did not lie because he does not exist.


**Idea 4: The “spring of muddy water” is where Cyrus I looked at the Black Sea**


Even if Cyrus I went to the eastern shore of the Black Sea, how would the sun appear to set in the Black Sea if he had already passed the eastern shore heading south and east? We have no evidence that Cyrus ever traveled to the region that includes modern Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, etc., east of the Black Sea.


A Muslim would have a slightly weaker argument if they said Cyrus saw the sun rising from the Black Sea, as he passed through to Greece, but the Quran talks about the sun setting. However, the Black Sea is not a spring, and everyone from the Egyptians to those far north knew the sun did not set in the Black Sea.


**Idea 5: The “spring of muddy water” is where Cyrus I looked at the Aegean Sea**


But the Persians knew very well the Athenians, Spartans (original Greeks), and other Greeks. The Persians would know that the Greeks were not on the other side of the sun.


**Idea 6: The “spring of muddy water” is where a king looked at the Red Sea**


Yemenis (Sabaeans/Shebans) were always aware of the Abyssinians (Ethiopians) across the river. If they thought the sun set in the Red Sea, then the Abyssinians would be the people on the other side where the sun was.


**Idea 7: The “spring of muddy water” is a metaphor**


If this was not real but a metaphor for something else, then the Quran failed to explain that it was not real, and the idea would be misleading. Furthermore, no one can say for certain what this metaphor referred to.


There is nothing in the Quran that indicates this was not real, and most early Muslims took it as literal truth. Considering that they knew the actual meaning of this from Muhammad’s followers, they were misled by Surah 18.


**Idea 8: Muhammad was recounting a dream**


This idea does not identify who Zul-Qarnain was. If Muhammad was recounting a dream, the sun could set wherever he wanted it to. Even if it is not clear who this mythical figure saw something totally false, and people believed it to be true, how would that teach us to believe the truth?


However, if someone said they saw someone named ‘Ali doing some amazing things, and millions of people believed in him for many centuries, how could that person be a liar if they forgot to tell people that "it was just my dream, and I did not see Ali doing this with my eyes"?


**Conclusion**


Regardless of who Zul-Qarnain was, the Quran presents this as truth that the sun sets in a spring of muddy water. Even people 1,000 years before Muhammad knew the sun did not set in Spain. This idea was not a metaphor because no early Muslim took it as such or provided an alternative meaning as a metaphor, and all early Muslims believed the Quran was not meant to deceive.
