The Hijacked Bible! The Terrifying Truth that Jews have been hiding from Christians!

Allah, Bible, Christian, Islam, Jesus, Jew, Moses, Quran, Truth, قرآن

In this post , In Sha Allah, and in future ones, I will do my best to write about the truth, about the Bible, about the real message of our beloved Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him), the conspiracy of the Zionists against the world and humanity, may ALLAH guide us ALL to the RIGHT path!

Prophecy fulfillment or Hate & Bigotry Full-Filling?

The neo-con Christians and zionists have hijacked the Bible, and have deceived the masses with the lies of the so-called “End of Times Prophecies against Egypt, Syria and the rest of Arabia”, because Isaiah 17, Isaiah 19 and other so-called “prophecies” from Ezekiel and Zachariah, and other books, were talking about giving Syria and Egypt to Iraq’s King, Nebuchadnezzar! see [1] & [2].  These “prophecies” have nothing to do with today’s current events.  Instead, we find Islam’s Prophecies to be all accurately coming true [1] [2].

1-  Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32 & Proverbs 30:5-6 and the categories of the Bible:

Christians are often quick to tell you that their modern-day “Bible” (different quantity of books and gospels, and different quantity of verses exist between bibles) is the “true living word of God.”  This is despite the fact that whatever bible we’re confronted with, we can easily find countless contradictions between verses and contradictions even with history!  Not only that, but ironically, even the Bible’s own theologians admit that the bible is corrupt and was written by “mysterious” people.  Not only that, but they also declare that the bible(s) contain fictions, fairy tales and fables:

The Christian and Bible theologians call them “fictions that exist in the Bible”!
The Christian and Bible theologians say “The original manuscripts had been lost”!
The Christian and Bible theologians call them “fairy tales and fables in the Bible”!

Anyway, it is important for the reader to not fall into the tricks and deception of Jews and infidel Christians, because the Bible’s (any version) text is categorized differently.  It can not all be lumped up into one big book and treat all verses and texts equally as the deceivers and liars do today!  The following verses clearly prove this:

Deuteronomy 4:2
Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

Deuteronomy 12:32
See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.

Proverbs 30:5-6
5 Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.

Those who are familiar with the Bible (any modern-day bible) know that it is divided into the following categories:

1-  The Torah.  Also known as the five books of Moses.  They are: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

2-  The Prophets.  These are the remaining books of the Old Testament.  Their quantity varies between bible to bible, and the quantity of verses in even the common books also vary between bible to bible.

3-  The New Testament.  This also has sub-categories in it such as (1) the four gospels (Mark, John, Luke and Matthew); (2) the Acts of the Apostles; (3) Pauline Epistles; (4) Epistle of the Hebrews; (5) General Epistles; (6) Revelation.  The quantity of verses in the four gospels varies between bible to bible, and the quantity of the books in points 2, 3, 4 and 5 also vary between bible to bible.

Please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible for more details.

Also, visit Contradictions and History of Corruption in the Bible to see the differences between the bibles.

Also, Just who were the original authors of the Bible? to see quotes from the NIV and KJV Bible’s theologians admitting that the bible is corrupt.  They also brought into question many verses in common books.

(a)-  Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32 & Proverbs 30:5-6 VS. the Bible!

Now in regards to Deuteronomy 4:2 above, it is important to know that the TEXT that exist in the “Torah” (Moses’ five books) is also divided into two categories:

1-  Direct Command from GOD Almighty, such as “Thus says the LORD….” and “The GOD of Israel says….”

Sam Shamoun agreeing with this point:

Even the extremely foul-mouthed polytheist trinitarian pagan, Sam Shamoun, in his ludicrous debate on the fundamentals of trinity with another trinitarian, Craig Winn, on how to define trinity, had this to say about the Bible:

Now if you are saying that we do not find any book or passage saying
that the entire New Testament canon is inspired, that argument would also be true of the Old Testament. We do not have any specific or explicit statement in either sections telling us the exact length of the OT, nor do all the books of the OT begin with “Thus saith the Lord,” or “The Word of the Lord came to such and such” etc.

Sam Shamoun

So even the Jews and Christians deep inside themselves recognize the corruption of their bible and the difference between the direct Commands that came from GOD Almighty VS. the man-made lies, corruption and alterations that exist throughout the bible from false historical stories and contradicting accounts.

2-  General text that was written by mysterious men, including writing about how Moses died and got buried in the books of Moses himself!  Obviously, Moses would not have been able to write about himself after he died.

Deuteronomy 4:2 falls under the first category, because it was a direct Command from GOD Almighty:


Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

Deuteronomy 4:2

When GOD Almighty clearly Commanded the followers of His Holy Words to not add anything nor subtract anything from His Words and/or mix them up with man-made corrupt words, then this without any doubt or dispute proves that Deuteronomy 4:2 is indeed a clear-cut proof that the Bible is indeed a corrupt book that is filled with man’s lies and alterations in it!

Few Examples from among literally 1000s of man-made lies in the Bible:

1-  Paul fighting with the disciples:

“When Peter came to Antioch, I [Paul] opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong.   Before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles.  But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he [Peter] was afraid of those who belonged to the circumcision group.  (The NIV Bible, Galatians: 2:11-12)”

So if GOD Almighty spoke His Divine Words through the mouths of the disciples, then was GOD Almighty *fighting* with Himself?

Please visit: The authors of the New Testament have conflicts (hostility) with each others.

Paul Versus the Disciples.

I would like to ask you (the Christian reader) to consider this:  Imagine if Jesus approached Abraham and accused him of being “clearly wrong” or “afraid”.  Imagine if Moses approached Jesus and accused him for going astray.

If an apostle of GOD in the New Testament was “clearly wrong” or had gone astray, then how would it be possible for us to trust everything he says?  And if so, then how would it be possible for us to take for granted everything his accuser said about him?

I find it to be quite ironic that the so called “Apostles of GOD” in the New Testament conflict with each others and charge each others.  The apostle of GOD is supposedly a person who speaks nothing but the words of GOD.  How in the world would it be possible for him then to do wrong or to go astray?

The people who wrote the current New Testament that we have today and called it the words of GOD are nothing but liars.  Paul was not an apostle of GOD.  He never even met Jesus peace be upon him in person.  Not even once.  How could he be then a companion of Jesus?  Is Jesus trying to confuse us?  I don’t think so.

The Gospels of Matthew, John, Mark, etc… were not written by their Matthew John, Mark, etc…  These Gospels were written by third party people.  Consider this: We read from the book of Matthew so many verses such as this one:

“…And as Jesus passed forth thence, HE (Jesus) saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and HE (Jesus) saith unto HIM (Matthew), follow ME (Jesus) and HE (Matthew) arose, and followed HIM (Jesus). “

Matthew 9:9

Did “Matthew” write this about himself? Why then didn’t Matthew write for example: “he (Jesus) saw ME, and my name is Matthew. I was sitting at the receipt of custom…” etc.

Similarly, we read in the books of Moses things such as “And the LORD said to Moses…”, or “Moses went to that place….”, etc…  We also read in the Old Testament about Moses’s burial.  Now if Moses alone supposedly wrote his books, then how is it possible for him to write about his own burial when he is already dead??!!

Such evidence can be found in many places throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament.  The so called “Original letters/Gospels” that were written in Greek and Hebrew, were written by third party people.

2-  Paul talking about how he is wanting to “winter there”.  Was his talk about his personal life, for instance, equivalent to GOD Almighty’s direct Commands in the Mosaic Law?

3-  The “fairy tales”, “fables” of the Bible.  For those who might say that the stories of the disciples and Prophets should be included in the Bible and that they were “inspired”, I tell them:

  i- Please read Deuteronomy 4:2 again because it clearly commanded the Believers to not add or subtract anything from what GOD Almighty Said.  You are certainly adding a ton of man-made material to GOD Almighty’s Words.
  ii- Also, please read Jeremiah 8:8 in the sub-section below and pay attention to its charge and warning about lies being added to the Law.
  iii- Who told you that these stories were “inspired” by GOD Almighty?  GOD Almighty is not the author of contradictions, lies and confusions, because these stories contain countless contradictions in text (a book contradicting another in the bible), countless contradictions and conflicts with history and archeology, and many of them are outright lies because they never happened!  Ironically, even the Christian and Bible theologians call them “fables” and “fictions” that exist in the Bible!
Please visit:  Contradictions and History of Corruption in the Bible 
for full proofs.
 

(b)-  Jeremiah 8:8 confirms Deuteronomy 4:2!

“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us’? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a LIE.   (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)”

As the charge and warning of false words/verses being ascribed to GOD Almighty in Deuteronomy 4:2 apply to Jeremiah 8:8 itself, but nonetheless, the latter verse certainly confirms the corruption of the Bible, because even the Mosaic Law got corrupt by getting mixed up with false verses (teachings and commandments of men) from the scribes and other alterations, which ultimately resulted in having all of them being put together into one big corrupt book called “the bible(s).”

So while Jeremiah 8:8 is not a Divine Noble Verse from GOD Almighty, but it nonetheless bears witness that false revelations had been inserted into the bibles, with all of the latters’ different and variant false books and gospels.

Please visit: Jeremiah 8:8 proves Historical Corruption in the Bible – by John McCarthy.  Got detailed archeological evidence.

The Argument of Jeremiah 8:8 Still Standing!

2-  The Noble Quran’s Claims on the Bible’s Laws:

Let us look at what Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran said about the Bibles of today:

(a)-  The Bibles are corrupt:

“That they rejected Faith; That they uttered against Mary A grave false charge;  That they said (in boast):  ‘We killed Christ Jesus The son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah.’  But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.  Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise.  And there is none of the people of the book (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him  (Jesus) Before his death; And on the Day of Judgment He (Jesus) will be a witness Against them. ”  

The Noble Quran, 4: 156-159

“Know they not Allah Knoweth what they conceal and what they reveal? And there are among them illiterates, who know not the Book (i.e., the Bible), but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing but conjecture.  Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: ‘This is from Allah,’ To traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby. “

The Noble Quran, 2:77-79

“O Apostle! let not those grieve thee, who race each other into unbelief: (whether it be) among those who say “We believe” with their lips but whose hearts have no faith; or it be among the Jews,- men who will listen to any lie,- will listen even to others who have never so much as come to thee. They change the words from their (right) times and places: they say, ‘If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!’ If any one’s trial is intended by God, thou hast no authority in the least for him against God. For such – it is not God’s will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.”

The Noble Quran, 5:41

(b)-  The Jews and Christians need to follow the “Law”:

Noble Verse(s) 6:89-6:90
Arabic (from right to left):
‏6:89 اولئك الذين اتيناهم الكتاب والحكم والنبوة فان يكفر بها هؤلاء فقد وكلنا بها قوما ليسوا بها بكافرين‏6:90
 اولئك الذين هدى الله فبهداهم اقتده قل لااسألكم عليه اجرا ان هو الا ذكرى للعالمين
Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:
[006:089]  They are those whom We gave the Book, AlHukm (understanding of the religious laws), and Prophethood. But if these disbelieve therein (the Book, AlHukm and Prophethood), then, indeed We have entrusted it to a people (such as the Companions of Prophet Muhammad SAW) who are not disbelievers therein.[006:090]  They are those whom Allah had guided. So follow their guidance. Say: “No reward I ask of you for this (the Quran). It is only a reminder for the Alameen (mankind and jinns).”
Noble Verse(s) 10:94-10:95
Arabic (from right to left):
‏10:94 فان كنت في شك مما انزلنا اليك فسأل الذين يقرؤون الكتاب من قبلك لقد جاءك الحق من ربك فلا تكونن من الممترين ‏10:95 ولاتكونن من الذين كذبوا بايات الله فتكون من الخاسرين
Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:
[10:94] ” So if you are in doubt concerning that which We have revealed unto you, then ask those who are reading the Book before you. Verily, the truth has come to you from your Lord. So be not of those who doubt (it).[10:95]  And be not one of those who belie the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, for then you shall be one of the losers.”

So how are we exactly supposed to read this?  It’s very clear and very simple, and Deuteronomy 4:2 above gives the greatest back up to the Noble Quran’s Divine Claims:

Deuteronomy 4:2
Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

1-  The Bibles’ books and gospels are corrupt and man-made.

2-  The Mosaic Law is the closest book to the Truth!

This is clearly confirmed in the following Noble Verses:

(c)-  The “Book” was only given to Moses and not to any other Prophet, and the only book that was “inherited” (as the Law) to the People of Israel!

The “Book” الكتاب (al-kitab) is the book that was sent to Moses:”We did aforetime give Moses the (Book of) Guidance, and We gave the book in inheritance to the Children of Israel,-  (The Noble Quran, 40:53)”

‏40:53 ولقد اتينا موسى الهدى واورثنا بني اسرائيل الكتاب

We gave Moses the Book (al-kitab) and followed him up with a succession of apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!  (The Noble Quran, 2:87)”

“Can they be (like) those who accept a Clear (Sign) from their Lord, and whom a witness from Himself doth teach, as did the Book of Moses كتاب موسى before it,– a guide and a mercy? They believe therein; but those of the Sects that reject it,- the Fire will be their promised meeting-place. Be not then in doubt thereon: for it is the truth from thy Lord: yet many among men do not believe!  (The Noble Quran, 11:17)”

“And before this, was the Book of Moses كتاب موسى as a guide and a mercy: And this Book confirms (it) in the Arabic tongue; to admonish the unjust, and as Glad Tidings to those who do right.  (The Noble Quran, 46:12)”

Noble Verse(s) 46:29-46:30
Yusuf Ali:[046:029]  Behold, We turned towards thee a company of Jinns (quietly) listening to the Quran: when they stood in the presence thereof, they said, “Listen in silence!” When the (reading) was finished, they returned to their people, to warn (them of their sins).[046:030]  They said, “O our people! We have heard a Book revealed after Moses, confirming what came before it: it guides (men) to the Truth and to a Straight Path.Arabic (from right to left):‏46:29 واذ صرفنا اليك نفرا من الجن يستمعون القران فلما حضروه قالوا انصتوا فلما قضي ولوا الى قومهم منذرين‏46:30 قالوا ياقومنا انا سمعنا كتابا انزل من بعد موسى مصدقا لما بين يديه يهدي الى الحق والى طريق مستقيم

Notice that the “Book” only belongs to Prophet Moses, peace be upon him, and not to the Prophets that came after him, except for the Noble Quran which was the “Book” (the Law for the Muslims) sent to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him:”It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book (al-kitab), confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment be tween right and wrong).  “

(The Noble Quran, 3:3)

He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book (al-kitab): In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is a llegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except God. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord:” and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.  “

(The Noble Quran, 3:7)

Continuing on….

Moreover, We gave Moses the Book (al-kitab), completing (Our favour) to those who would do right, and explaining all things in detail,- and a guide and a mercy, that they might believe in the meeting with their Lord.  (The Noble Quran, 6:154)”

We certainly gave the Book to Moses, but differences arose therein: had it not been that a word had gone forth before from thy Lord, the matter would have been decided between them, but they are in suspicious doubt concerning it.  (The Noble Quran, 11:110)”“We gave Moses the Book, and made it a Guide to the Children of Israel, (commanding): “Take not other than Me as Disposer of (your) affairs.”  (The Noble Quran, 17:2)”

“And We gave Moses the Book, in order that they might receive guidance.  (The Noble Quran, 23:49)””(Before this,) We sent Moses The Book, and appointed his brother Aaron with him as minister;  (The Noble Quran, 25:35)”

We did reveal to Moses the Book after We had destroyed the earlier generations, (to give) Insight to men, and guidance and Mercy, that they might receive admonition.  (The Noble Quran, 28:43)””We did indeed aforetime give the Book to Moses: be not then in doubt of its reaching (thee): and We made it a guide to the Children of Israel.  (The Noble Quran, 32:23)”

We certainly gave Moses the Book aforetime: but disputes arose therein. Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from thy Lord, (their differences) would have been settled between them: but they remained in suspicious disquieting doubt thereon.  (The Noble Quran, 41:45)””Nay, is he not acquainted with what is in the Books of Moses–  (The Noble Quran, 53:36)”

Noble Verse(s) 2:53
Yusuf Ali:[002:053]  And remember We gave Moses the Scripture and the Criterion (Between right and wrong): There was a chance for you to be guided aright.Arabic (from right to left):‏2:53 واذ اتينا موسى الكتاب والفرقان لعلكم تهتدون
Noble Verse(s) 21:48
Yusuf Ali:[021:048]  In the past We granted to Moses and Aaron the criterion (for judgment), and a Light and a Message (Thikr) for those who would do right,-Arabic (from right to left):‏21:48 ولقد اتينا موسى وهارون الفرقان وضياء وذكرا للمتقين

Aaron, however, was not the main Prophet.  He was Moses’ brother and his helper because Moses had speech disabilities:Noble Verse(s) 20:20-36:

Yusuf Ali:[020:020]  He threw it, and behold! It was a snake, active in motion.

[020:021]  (God) said, “Seize it, and fear not: We shall return it at once to its former condition”..[020:022]  “Now draw thy hand close to thy side: It shall come forth white (and shining), without harm (or stain),- as another Sign,-

[020:023]  “In order that We may show thee (two) of our Greater Signs.[020:024]  “Go thou to Pharaoh, for he has indeed transgressed all bounds.”

[020:025]  (Moses) said: “O my Lord! expand me my breast;[020:026]  “Ease my task for me;

[020:027]  “And remove the impediment from my speech,[020:028]  “So they may understand what I say:

[020:029]  “And give me a Minister from my family,[020:030]  “Aaron, my brother;

[020:031]  “Add to my strength through him,[020:032]  “And make him share my task:

[020:033]  “That we may celebrate Thy praise without stint,[020:034]  “And remember Thee without stint:

[020:035]  “For Thou art He that (ever) regardeth us.”[020:036]  (God) said: “Granted is thy prayer, O Moses!”

Arabic (from right to left): ‏20:20 فالقاها فاذا هي حية تسعى

‏20:21 قال خذها ولاتخف سنعيدها سيرتها الاولى‏20:22 واضمم يدك الى جناحك تخرج بيضاء من غير سوء اية اخرى

‏20:23 لنريك من اياتنا الكبرى‏20:24 اذهب الى فرعون انه طغى

‏20:25 قال رب اشرح لي صدري‏20:26 ويسر لي امري

‏20:27 واحلل عقدة من لساني‏20:28 يفقهوا قولي

‏20:29 واجعل لي وزيرا من اهلي‏20:30 هارون اخي

‏20:31 اشدد به ازري‏20:32 واشركه في امري

‏20:33 كي نسبحك كثيرا‏20:34 ونذكرك كثيرا

‏20:35 انك كنت بنا بصيرا‏20:36 قال قد اوتيت سؤلك ياموسى

This is further proven in the following Noble Verses:

“Of the people of Moses there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth.(The Noble Quran, 7:159)”“We did aforetime give Moses the (Book of) Guidance, and We gave the book in inheritance to the Children of Israel,-  (The Noble Quran, 40:53)”

‏40:53 ولقد اتينا موسى الهدى واورثنا بني اسرائيل الكتاب

We gave Moses the Book (al-kitab) and followed him up with a succession of apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!  (The Noble Quran, 2:87)”

“Can they be (like) those who accept a Clear (Sign) from their Lord, and whom a witness from Himself doth teach, as did the Book of Moses كتاب موسى before it,– a guide and a mercy? They believe therein; but those of the Sects that reject it,- the Fire will be their promised meeting-place. Be not then in doubt thereon: for it is the truth from thy Lord: yet many among men do not believe!  (The Noble Quran, 11:17)”

“And before this, was the Book of Moses كتاب موسى as a guide and a mercy: And this Book confirms (it) in the Arabic tongue; to admonish the unjust, and as Glad Tidings to those who do right.  (The Noble Quran, 46:12)”

And the other Noble Verses mentioned above and others that are mentioned in the Noble Quran.

(d)-  The modern-day New Testaments are all corrupt:

“That they rejected Faith; That they uttered against Mary A grave false charge;  That they said (in boast):  ‘We killed Christ Jesus The son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah.’  But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.  Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise.  And there is none of the people of the book (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him  (Jesus) Before his death; And on the Day of Judgment He (Jesus) will be a witness Against them.   (The Noble Quran, 4:156-159)”  

So the “Book” that Allah Almighty Commanded the Jews and Christians to follow in the Noble Quran is the Mosaic Law because not only the Noble Quran claims it, but also Deuteronomy 4:2 above clearly confirms it!

(e)-  Even Jesus was not given the “Book”!

Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was only given the “Injil”, which is Revelations or Inspirations that were sent down to him:

We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!  (The Noble Quran, 2:87)”

‏2:87 ولقد اتينا موسى الكتاب وقفينا من بعده بالرسل واتينا عيسى ابن مريم البينات وايدناه بروح القدس افكلما جاءكم رسول بما لاتهوى انفسكم استكبرتم ففريقا كذبتم وفريقا تقتلون

“Then, in their wake, We followed them up with (others of) Our apostles: We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the Gospel (Injil); and We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him Compassion and Mercy. But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them: (We commanded) only the seeking for the Good Pleasure of God; but that they did not foster as they should have done. Yet We bestowed, on those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are rebellious transgressors.  (The Noble Quran, 57:27)”

‏57:27 ثم قفينا على اثارهم برسلنا وقفينا بعيسى ابن مريم واتيناه الانجيل وجعلنا في قلوب الذين اتبعوه رافة ورحمة ورهبانية ابتدعوها ماكتبناها عليهم الا ابتغاء رضوان الله فما رعوها حق رعايتها فاتينا الذين امنوا منهم اجرهم وكثير منهم فاسقون

(f)-  So what Book is the “People of the Book’s”?

Say: ‘O People of the Book (i.e., Jews and Christians)!  Come to common terms as between us and you:  That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.’  If then they turn back, say ye: ‘Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will).’  (The Noble Quran, 3:64)”

The “People of the Book” (i.e., Jews and Christians) are the People of the Book of the Law and Thikr of Moses كتاب موسى:

“Can they be (like) those who accept a Clear (Sign) from their Lord, and whom a witness from Himself doth teach, as did the Book of Moses كتاب موسى before it,– a guide and a mercy? They believe therein; but those of the Sects that reject it,- the Fire will be their promised meeting-place. Be not then in doubt thereon: for it is the truth from thy Lord: yet many among men do not believe!  (The Noble Quran, 11:17)”

“And before this, was the Book of Moses كتاب موسى as a guide and a mercy: And this Book confirms (it) in the Arabic tongue; to admonish the unjust, and as Glad Tidings to those who do right.  (The Noble Quran, 46:12)”

The People of Dhikr (Thikr) of Moses are the People of the Book!

Allah Almighty called them the People of the Thikr and People of the Book.  Therefore, the Moses’ Thikr is the Book of the People of the Book.  see Noble Verses 21:48, 16:43-44, 21:7, 21:105, 3:58, 15:6, 15:9, 36:11, 38:1 and 68:51

Furthermore, the Noble Quran further Says:

–  Ask the People of Thikr if you (Muhammad) know not.
–  We (Allah) have sent to you (Muhammad) the Thikr.

Noble Verse(s) 36:11

Noble Verse(s) 68:51
Yusuf Ali:[068:051]  And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message (Thikr); and they say: “Surely he is possessed!”Arabic (from right to left):‏68:51 وان يكاد الذين كفروا ليزلقونك بابصارهم لما سمعوا الذكر ويقولون انه لمجنون


There is no question that the following points are true:

1-  The Thikr came down to Prophets Moses and Muhammad, peace be upon them.

2-  The Jews and Christians were called “People of Book” and “People of Thikr”.

Therefore, the People of the Book are the People of Moses’ Thikr.  And again, the clear-cut proof and greatest back up for this is Deuteronomy 4:2:

Deuteronomy 4:2
Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

Also, when one reads the Bible’s Old Testament, one would see that even in the Prophets’ books, all of their actions and laws did revolve around and come from the Mosaic Thikr (Law).  Not only that, but they constantly made ample references to it as well, as shown in Jeremiah 8:8 above and many other verses.  So even in the Bible, this point is thoroughly proven.  Even Jesus Christ in the New Testament had this to say about the Mosaic Law:

“Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.  I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke or a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.  (Matthew 5:17-18)” 

Jesus, peace be upon him, said that every Law in the Law of Moses and every Prophecy that was made by the Prophets, peace be upon them, shall be fulfilled and completed.  He did not come to abolish any of them.

3-  Conclusion:

I believe that the following points had been clearly established throughout this article by Allah Almighty’s Grace, Mercy and Will:

1-  The modern-day bibles are all corrupt and filled with man-made lies and alterations. 

2-  Deuteronomy 4:2 clearly and indisputably confirms that mixing up the Bible between GOD Almighty’s Divine Law and Revelations with man’s words is not acceptable. 

3-  Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran never recognized Constantine’s “Bible” or any other “Bible” from among the many bibles out there as the Divine Truth.

4-  The Book of Moses كتاب موسى  is the “Book” that Allah Almighty Commanded the Jews and Christians to follow in the Noble Quran, and it was the only Book that was “inherited” (as the Law) to the People of Israel.

5-  The “People of the Book” in the Noble Quran are the people who were Commanded by Allah Almighty to follow the Law/Book of Moses كتاب موسى , peace be upon him.

6-  The “People of the Book” were also called the “People of Moses’ Thikr.”  Hence, the People of the Book are the People of the Mosaic Law (Thikr) الذكر.

I just want to conclude this article by telling my Jewish, Christian and also Muslim readers that no one, who sincerely and truthfully follows the Mosaic Law’s Great 10 Commandments, which also exist in the Noble Quran, goes astray!  Allah Almighty clearly said in the Noble Quran:

Of the people of Moses there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth.(The Noble Quran, 7:159)”

“Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration.  They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous.  (The Noble Quran, 3:113-114)”

“And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book [Jews and Christians], those who believe in God, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to God: They will not sell the Signs of God for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and God is swift in account.   (The Noble Quran, 3:199)”

As to those who hold fast by the Book and establish regular prayer,- never shall We suffer the reward of the righteous to perish.  (The Noble Quran, 7:170)”

All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone.

WHAT IS ISLAM

Allah, Arabic, Bible, Christian, Islam, Jesus, Jew, Life, Moses, Peace, Quran, Uncategorized

WHAT’S ISLAM? Who is ALLAH? What is Quran?

Part 1

That’s a question many people are asking today, Islam is the topic of many discussions, yet, very often people don’t have the essence of the meaning, even Muslims themselves are not sure how to translate it.

The word ISLAM is the only word not translated from the Qur’an when they bring it to the English language, and there’s a reason for that, when we go into Arabic dictionary we find that it takes a series of words to represent the concept of what “ASLAMA” means

Aslama: verb for the noun: Islam, it caries the meaning of:

  • Surrender
  • Submission
  • Obedience
  • Sincerity
  • Peace

We understand about: Surrender, to give in, Submit, that’s to go along with something. To Obey the commandments and then to be Sincere, and we can stop right there for a moment and think about it, if it requires Sincerity then there’s no possible way that you’ll be forced anyway, because if anyone is forced to do anything then, there will be NO longer to be sincerity, thus we realize that the concept of Islam being spread by the sward or any type of force is IMPOSSIBLE because Islam requires Sincerity.

Finally, the word Peace, this is the peace that a person has in his heart, after they have done the other four, meaning that they have to surrendered, submitted in obedience and sincerity, and now they are going to be in peace with whatever transpires or comes out of it.


There’s an other word related to it, MUSLIM: مسلم, for you and I, we may not think the word Muslim will be read Islam, but that’s because in Arabic we use the prefix Mu before a verb to denote the one who is performing the action, whereas in English we use the “ER” letters as a suffix at the end of a word to represent the one who does the action, like:

  • walk walk-er
  • Call call-er
  • Talk Talk-er
  • Think Think-er

and then, in Arabic you put “Mu” ahead of it

  • Mu-safir = Traveler
  • Mu-athen = Call-er (the one who calls to prayer)
  • Mu-salli = Worshiper (the one who prays)

This helps us to understand the word Islam, but what does Islam imply? we talked about the terminology of the word but has it to do with ALLAH? Is Allah God? Is there a purpose behind all of this? who is this God? who is the Ilah? and in fact, In Islam, the most important subject is ALLAH.

Allah does not exactly translate into the word God! and that’s because the word God, in English, only has one form : God, whereas in Arabic Allah comes from: elah

  • god = Elah : اله – Singular
  • gods = Aleha: الهة – Plural

and Elah is anything that can be worshiped, it can be a rock, a stick, a stone, a bone, things made with the hand, things that you can put on a shelf or carry along with you and worship, could be the stars, the moon, the universe, whatever a person worships, that’s their Elah, even their position in life, who they are, their degrees, their job, their position as a human being, all of these things are Aleha (plural for Elah: god)

But in English you don’t have a proper noun for the One and Only God, so what they do is, take the word god and make a big “G” out of it and say this is the proper noun, whereas in Arabic you can’t take Elah and then you have Allah! and it doesn’t just mean The God, cause that would be “Al Elah” but Allah is the actual name of the One and Only God, you don’t have to worry about capital letters in Arabic, because there aren’t any! you can hear it Clearly: ALLAH, the One and Only God to be worshiped.

Now, is this the God of the Arabs? as Muslims, yes, what about Arab Christians? did you know there’s Arab Christians, Arab Jews? They use the exact same word. In fact, in the Arabic Bible, which by the way, much older than the English Bible, you find the word Allah on page one on Genesis, seventeen times! that’s right! and in the new testament, you’ll find it very easily in almost any hotel or motel you go to it, because, when you pull over the little drawer by the bed, you’ll notice there’s a book in there, a Bible, you turn few pages, you see examples of the translations of the Bible into different languages, and the second language is Arabic, and the phrase is taken from John 3:16: “For God so loved the world..” and the word there for God, is used, is “ALLAH”

Now what about the belief in Muhammad? is that something that is similar to Christianity or Judaism? Well, for Christians who believe in Abraham as Jews believe in Abraham, as being the First or the pregenerator of this monotheistic belief,the belief in One God, then the answer would be Yes , because this is what Muhammad taught (Peace be upon him) He is a direct descendant from Abraham, Yes! by the way of his son Ismail (Ishmael) so, Ismail is well known to be a father of many Arabs today, and it’s from him, through Abraham, Ismail, that we find others all the way down to the prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

What about the other prophets, that came by way of Isaac, from the other branch of Abraham? Well, we know Moses, don’t we?, David, Solomon and of course Jesus, and we say: Peace be upon them all, (this is very important for Muslims to always say that; Peace be upon them)

What was it that Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus had in common with Muhammad (peace be upon them)? Do you know what it was? it was the message that they brought to their people.

  • Abraham taught people to worship God directly and not be involved in false worship or pagan worship.
  • Moses, peace be upon him, My Gosh!that’s very clear, isn’t it?! when we look to the ten commandments we find immediately the very first commandment is that you shall not have any other worship except for the One God; ” Thou shall Not Have Any Other Gods Beside Me” that’s the way God ordered Moses to write it down isn’t it!
  • And David, with his Psalms, and Solomon, of course, they were in the exact same thinking, their beliefs were not just similar, they were Identical.
  • And then, Jesus ( peace be upon him), many people would tell you that Jesus said this or he said that, but when we look to the Bible, you know what we find? we find that it wasn’t Jesus who had these different opinions and ideas, it was actually PAUL! The quotes from Jesus in the Gospel are so identical to prophets before, you can’t help but notice it!

For instance in Mathew 5:17 where Jesus says:

“Think not that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets, I came not to destroy but to FULFIL.”

Mathew 5:16

And not all things are accomplished, shall a single dot, or jot, or iota or little being in any wise lessened“.

So, we see right away that he was saying: I’m holding up the Torah, the law from before. Then when we look further into the book of Mark, we see what is the greatest of all commandments, that’s in 12:29 in the book of Mark, and look what it says, when somebody is asking him, what’s the greatest commandment?According to English translation I have it says that Jesus responded: It is to know: O, Israel, the Lord, your God is ONE Lord, and you have to love Him with All your heart and your mind and your strength”.

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord, our God is One Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord Thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.”

Mark 12:29

So, obviously, we know now that this message was very important; worshiping God Alone without partners. And that is Exactly what Muhammad (peace be upon him) was trying to do with his people, at his time in Mekka, because they had strayed far away from their great ancestor Abraham ( peace be upon him), they still perform some of the rituals but without the proper belief, they still made circumambulation around the same place that Abraham had built a long with his son Ismail or Ishmael in English. And do you know, and this is an amazing thing, when you think about it, these people were thinking they were doing exactly the same as their ancestors, but their ancestors, has strayed so far away that all they had, was the physical presentation without any other proper beliefs, not in their worship, and certainly not in the way they treated each other, these people had become alcoholics, they have become womanizers, they had become very bad, we will just leave it at that.. because we want to come to something next about our subject, what is Islam?

What about this book called Qur’an? what is that all about? in the very beginning of the Qur’an itself, it demands the believers who believe in the Qur’an , MUST also believe in the previous revelations. To believe to what is said to Muhammad, (peace be upon him), in what was sent before, and the Qur’an go on to tell us about the Torah: the Law or the old testament, The Zaboor; this is the Psalms, and the Injeel: Gospel ( New testament). So whoever would not believe that God was the originator of these, that God was One who sent those down, if they wouldn’t believe that, the, their belief in the Qur’an by itself is not enough, because the Qur’an says that! ( to believe in what was sent before).

And what does Qur’an exactly mean?in simple English, well, it doesn’t mean “Book”, the word “Bible” literally means “Book”, Biblios from Greek, but the word Qur’an is Arabic, it means “Recitation” , that is which is being recited, and that’s how the Qur’an comes to us today. Because, did you know that the Prophet Muhammad, he used to recite it just as he “heard” it from the Angel “Gabriel (Jibreel) the way that it was recited

I will stop right there, and will be back to you again in the 2nd part of this “Written” video of Yusuf ESTES : What is ISLAM

The Relation between Torah, Injil & Quran ?

Bible, Christian, Jesus, Jew, Life, Moses, Quran, Uncategorized

We read from Quran Chapter 3, verse 3 ( Surat Al Imran)

(3:3) He has revealed this Book to you, setting forth the truth and confirming the earlier Books, and earlier He revealed the Torah and Gospel
(3:4) for the guidance of mankind; *2 and He has also revealed the Criterion (to distinguish truth from falsehood). A severe chastisement lies in store for those who deny the signs of Allah. Allah is All-Mighty; He is the Lord of Retribution.

Explanation :

*2). The Torah is generally taken to signify the first five books of the Old Testament, and the Injil (Gospel), to mean the four Gospels of the New Testament, even though those books form a part of it. This has sometimes caused people to wonder if these books were indeed revealed by God. If they are accepted as revealed, one may wonder if the Qur’an really verifies their contents as this verse says. The fact is, however, that the Torah is not identical with the first five books of the Old Testament even though those books form a part of the Torah. Likewise, the Injil is not identical with the four Gospels of the New Testament.
The fact is that the Torah, in the Qur’anic usage, signifies the revelations made to Moses (peace be on him), in about forty years, from the time he was appointed a Prophet until his death. These include the Ten Commandments’, which were handed over to him inscribed on stone tablets. Moses took down the rest of the revealed injunctions and handed over one copy to each of the twelve tribes of Israel, and one copy to the Levites for safe keeping. It is this book which was known as the Torah and it existed until the first destruction of Jerusalem. The copy entrusted to the Levites was put beside the Ark of the Covenant along with the Commandment tablets, and the Israelites knew it as the Torah. The Jews, however, neglected the Book: during the reign of Josiah the King of Judah the Temple of Solomon was under repair and the high priest, Hilkiah, chanced to find the Book lying in the construction area. He gave it to the King’s secretary, Shaphan, who in turn took it to the King as if it were a strange find (see 2 Kings 22: 8-13).
Hence, when the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar, conquered Jerusalem and razed it and the Temple of Solomon to the ground, the Israelites lost for ever the few original copies of the Torah which they possessed, and which they had consigned to obscurity. At the time of Ezra the priest, some Israelites returned from captivity in Babylon, and when Jerusalem was rebuilt the entire history of Israel, which now comprises the first seventeen books of the Old Testament, was recorded by Ezra with the assistance of some other elders of the community. Four of these books, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, consist of a biographical narrative of Moses. In this biography those verses of the Torah available to Ezra and the other elders are also recorded and in the contexts in which they were revealed. The present Torah, therefore, comprises those fragments of the original book which are interspersed throughout the biography of Moses (composed in the manner described above).
In locating these fragments of the original Torah there are certain expressions which help us. These are interspersed between the different pieces of biographical narration and usually open with words such as: ‘Then the Lord said to Moses’, and ‘Moses said, the Lord your God commands you.’ These expressions, then, are fragments of the original Torah. When the biographical narration re-commences, however, we can be sure that the fragment of the true Torah has concluded. Wherever authors and editors of the Bible have added anything of their own accord, by way of either elaboration or elucidation, it has become very difficult for an ordinary reader to distinguish the original from the explanatory additions. Those with insight into Divine Scripture, however, do have the capacity to distinguish between the original revealed fragments and the later, human interpolations.
It is these scattered fragments of the original revealed Book which the Qur’an terms as the Torah, and it is these which it confirms. When these fragments are compared with the Qur’an, there is no difference between the two as regards the fundamental teachings. Whatever differences exist relate to legal matters and are of secondary importance. Even today a careful reader can appreciate that the Torah and the Qur’an have sprung from one and the same Divine source.
Likewise, Injil signifies the inspired orations and utterances of Jesus (peace be on him), which he delivered during the last two or three years of his life in his capacity as a Prophet. There are no certain means by which we can definitively establish whether or not his statements were recorded during his lifetime. It is possible that some people took notes of them and that some followers committed them to memory. After a period of time, however, several treatises on the life of Jesus were written. The authors of these treatises recorded, in connection with the biographical account, those sayings of his which they had received from the previous generation of co-religionists, in the form of either oral traditions or written notes about events in his life. As a result the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are not identical with the Injil. Rather, the Injil consists of those statements by Jesus which form part of these Gospels. Unfortunately we have no means of distinguishing the fragments of the original Injil from the pieces written by the authors themselves. All we can say is that only those sections explicitly attributed to Jesus, for example in statements such as: ‘And Jesus said’ and ‘And Jesus taught’, constitute the true Injil. It is the totality of such fragments which is designated as the Injil by the Qur’an, and it is the teachings contained in these fragments that the Qur’an confirms. If these fragments are put together and compared with the teachings of the Qur’an one notices very few discrepancies between the two, and any discrepancies that are found can be resolved easily by unbiased reflection.
