ISLAM IS THE DEEN GIVEN TO EVERY MESSENGER

Al-Qur’ân: Chapter 41 verse 43. “NOTHING IS SAID TO THEE (i.e. MUHAMMAD) THAT WAS NOT SAID TO THE MESSENGERS BEFORE THEE (i.e MUHAMMAD): that thy Rabb has at His command (all) forgiveness as well as a Most grievous penalty.” [Meaning the message is the same and the language is the same]

Chapter 42 verse 13. “THE SAME DEEN has He (i.e. Allâh) established for you as that which He (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Nûh (Noah)- the which We (i.e. Allâh) have sent by inspiration to thee (i.e. Muhammad) - and that which We (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Ibrâhîm (Abraham), Mûsâ (Moses), and Îsâ (Jesus): namely, that ye should remain steadfast in deen (religion), and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allâh, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allâh chooses to Himself those whom He (i.e. Allâh) pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).”

EXPLANATION OF CHAPTER 14 VERSE 4

Using the method of Tasreef (refer to Chapter 17 verse 41) and Tafseer (refer to Chapter 25 verse 33) from within Al-Qur’ân to explain the Chapter 14 verse 4.

Let’s begin by quoting the verse.

Chapter 14 verse 4. “We (i.e. Allâh) sent not a MESSENGER except (to teach) IN THE LANGUAGE OF HIS (own) PEOPLE, in order to make (things) clear to them. Now Allâh leaves straying those whom He (i.e. Allâh) pleases and guides whom He (i.e. Allâh) pleases: and He (i.e. Allâh) is Exalted in power, full of Wisdom.”

To understand Chapter 14 verse 4 let me quote one of the main reasons for Revelation as stated in Al-Qur’ân by Allâh Himself:

Chapter 16 verse 64. “And We (i.e. Allâh) sent down the Book to thee for the express purpose, that thou shouldst make clear to them those things in which they differ, and that it should be a guide and a Mercy to those who believe.”

Chapter 42 verse 10. “Whatever it be wherein ye DIFFER, the DECISION THEREOF IS WITH ALLÂH. Such is Allâh my Rabb: in Him I trust, and to Him I turn.”

Chapter 3 verse 109. “To Allâh belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: TO HIM (i.e. ALLÂH) DO ALL QUESTIONS GO BACK (for decision).”

Now that we have established that ALL QUESTIONS are answered by Allâh let us find the answers from Al-Qur’ân as Allâh orders us to do!

________________________________________________________________________.

The first point: Allâh makes it clear that the messengers were chosen by Allâh Himself. Refer to (not quoted: Chapter 22 verse 75; Chapter 2 verse 253; Chapter 16 verse 121). These chosen messengers had to teach their own people in the language of their (own) people.

I am sure the above is clear enough.

Second point: What language did these messengers and their people speak? The answer is Arabic. Why? Because Allâh makes it abundantly clear in TEN AYÂT THAT THIS IS AN ARABIC QUR’ÂN and no words other that Arabic are in His Book. The messengers Allâh chose were from the LINAGE mentioned in Chapter 3 verse 33, and Chapter 6 verses 84/90. (Those that are not mentioned as stated in Chapter 4 verses 163[1]/64 are also from the same linage. Not quoted)

Thirdly: Every name of Allâh’s messengers mentioned in Al-Qur’ân is in ARABIC! Refer to 6-84/90 below. Therefore the messengers were given the message in ARABIC just as Muhammad was given Al-Qur’ân in Arabic! Al-Qur’ân can never contain any word in any other language! Otherwise there would be a contradiction and Allâh says in chapter 4 verse 82 that is NO CONTRADICTION IN HIS BOOK. Allâh will not say ten times this is an ARABIC Qur’ân and then put in Hebrew words to contradict Himself. It would also mean that the Qur’ân cannot be divine if man made words are used. To believe that there are Hebrew words in Al-Qur’ân is a grave sin when Allâh says ten times THIS IS AN ARABIC QUR’ÂN !

Fourthly: To claim “There were Jewish Prophets” is not true! There were never any Jewish prophets. The linage of all the messengers is pure and Allâh has secured their pure linage in Al-Qur’ân. Because the Jews came into existence through the raping by the Romans and Greek and so are illegitimate. I shall refer to this point and provide more details later from Al-Qur’ân.

Fifthly: Who were these messengers Allâh refers to that received His messages? Allâh informs us in the following AYÂT:

Chapter 3 verse 33. Allâh did choose Adam and Nûh, the family of Ibrâhîm, and the family of 'Imran above all people, - Chapter 3 verse 34. “OFFSPRING, one of the other: and Allâh heareth and knoweth all things.”

Who were these offspring that Allâh refers to in Chapter 3 verses 33/4? They are mentioned in the following AYÂT (verses):

Chapter 6 verse 84. “We (i.e. Allâh) gave him (i.e. Ibrâhîm) Ishâq and Yacub: all (three) We (i.e. Allâh) guided: and before him, We (i.e. Allâh) guided Nûh, and among his progeny, Dawud, Sulaimaan, Ayyûb, Yusuf, Mûsâ, and Haroon: Thus do We (i.e. Allâh) reward those who do good:

Chapter 6 verse 85. “And Zakariya and Yahyâ, and Îsâ and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous:

Chapter 6 verse 86. “And Isma'il and Elisha, and Yunus, and Lut: and to all We (i.e.Allâh) gave favour above the nations:”

Chapter 6 verse 87. (to them) and to (mîn) some of their fathers, and (some) progeny and brethren: We (i.e. Allâh) chose them, and We (i.e.Allâh) guided them to a straight way.” [All the fathers were not guided as Allâh informs us about nabi Ibrâhîm’s father and Nuh’s son]

Chapter 6 verse 88. “This is the guidance of Allâh. He (i.e. Allâh) giveth that guidance to whom He (i.e. Allâh) pleaseth, of His (i.e. Allâh) worshippers. If they were to join other gods with Him (i.e.Allâh), all that they did would be vain for them.”

Chapter 6 verse 89. “These were the men to whom We (i.e. Allâh) gave the Book, and authority, and prophethood: if these (their descendants) reject them, Behold! We (i.e. Allâh) shall entrust their charge to a new people who reject them not.

Chapter 6 verse 90. “Those were the (prophets) who received Allâh’s guidance: copy the guidance they received; say: "No reward for this do I ask of you: This is no less than a Message for the Nations.” (cf: Chapter34 verse 28; Chapter7 verses 157/158)

How did these messengers convey Allâh’s messages: Allâh informs us it was THROUGH HIS WORDS ONLY in Arabic:

Chapter 10 verse 82. “And Allâh by HIS WORDS DOTH PROVE AND ESTABLISH HIS TRUTH, however much the sinners may hate it!”

Chapter 41 verse 3. “A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail; - A QUR’ÂN IN ARABIC, for people who understand;”-

Chapter 43 verse 3. “We (i.e. Allâh) have made it A QUR’ÂN IN ARABIC, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom).”

Chapter 12 verse 2. “We (i.e. Allâh) have sent IT down as an ARABIC QUR’ÂN, in order that ye may learn wisdom.”

The following verse is explicit: Allâh sent Al-Qur’ân in the Arabic language because the message is perfect in Arabic[2]! Refer also to Chapter 26 verses 195 to 199!

Chapter 41 verse 44. “Had We (Allâh) sent this as a Qur’ân (in the language) other than Arabic, they would have said: "Why are not IT’S (i.e. al- Qur’ân) verses explained in detail? What! (a Book) not in Arabic and a Messenger an Arab?” Say: “It is a guide and a healing to those who believe; and for those who believe not, there is deafness in their ears, and it is blindness in their (eyes): they are (as it were) being called from a place far distant!”

What Allâh is informing us clearly in Chapter 41 verse 44 is that no other language can be clearer than Arabic! The following verses make it even clearer that Allâh’s Revelation was always in Arabic. Pay attention to the following:

IN THE PERSPICUOUS ARABIC TONGUE!
Had We (Allâh) revealed it to any of the non-Arabs, and had he (i.e. Muhammad) recited it to them, they would not have believed in it.”

Chapter 26 verses 192-199. “Verily this is a Revelation (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) from the Rabb of the Worlds: with IT (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) came down the RÛHIL AMEEN of Faith and Truth- to thy (i.e. Muhammad’s) heart and mind, that thou (i.e. Muhammad) mayest admonish IN THE PERSPICUOUS ARABIC TONGUE. Without doubt it is (announced) in the mystic Books of former peoples. Is it not a Sign to them that the learned of the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL[3] knew it (as true)? Had We (i.e. Allâh) revealed it to any of the non-Arabs, and had he (i.e. Muhammad) recited it to them, they would not have believed in it.”

To-recap: there are many AYÂT that makes clear:

The names of the messengers were all ARABIC
The messages given to every messenger was all in ARABIC
Allâh say that every messenger was an offspring of the names mentioned above in Chapter 3 verse 33, Chapter 6 verses 84/90, all ARABIC names
Muhammad was given the message in ARABIC for ALL OF MANKIND- Question: Do all mankind speak Arabic? Of course not! So why Arabic?
Two reasons spring to mind: One that Arabic is the Mother of all languages[4]. Secondly being the most precise and clear language to make the messages clear as stated in the AYÂT. Over time languages change but Allâh’s message must be in an unchangeable language.
Chapter 30 verse 22. “And among His (i.e. Allâh’s) Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and THE VARIATIONS IN YOUR LANGUAGES and your colours: Verily in that are Signs for those who know.”

Let us analyze the above verse. Allâh says THE VARIATIONS IN YOUR LANGUAGES, tells us that human languages evolved but Allâh’s language does not evolve! It remains the same but the meanings will become clear over time as knowledge advances as stated in:

Chapter 38 verse 88. “And ye shall certainly know the truth of IT (i.e. al- Qur’ân) (all) after a while.”
The Arabic language is easily memorized as is proven over the centuries.

There are many such AYÂT in Al-Qur’ân stating the following: e.g.

Chapter 14 verse 1. “Alif. Lâm Ra. a Book which We (i.e. Allâh) have revealed unto THEE (i.e. Muhammad), in order that thou mightest lead MANKIND out of the depths of darkness into light - by the leave of their Rabb - to the way of (Him) the Exalted in power, worthy of all praise!”-

ALLÂH SAYS THE QUR’ÂN IS A MESSAGE FOR ALL OF MANKIND. Are we going to reject what Allâh says? Does anyone know better than Allâh?

Next: was Muhammad a messenger for all of mankind though he spoke Arabic? Let us see what Allâh orders Muhammad to say:

Chapter 7 verse 158. “O MANKIND! I (i.e. MUHAMMAD) AM SENT UNTO YOU ALL, AS THE MESSENGER OF ALLÂH, to whom belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth: there is no god but He: it is He (i.e. Allâh) that giveth both life and death. So believe in Allâh and His Messenger, THE UNLETTERED PROPHET, WHO BELIEVETH IN ALLÂH AND HIS WORDS: follow Him that (so) ye may be guided.”

ALLÂH REPEATS THIS FACT AGAIN HIMSELF THAT HE SENT MUHAMMAD AS A UNIVERSAL MESSENGER.

Chapter 34 verse 28. “WE (i.e. Allâh) HAVE NOT SENT THEE (i.e. Muhammad) BUT AS A UNIVERSAL (MESSENGER) TO MANKIND, giving them glad tidings, and warning them (against sin), but most men understand not.”

____________________________________________________________________________________

What does Allâh say regarding the Qur’ânic message in relationship of the previous messages? Have they been lost or destroyed? Allâh says they have been secured in Al-Qur’ân :

Chapter 3 verse 3. “It is He (i.e. Allâh) who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth the Book, CONFIRMING WHAT WENT BEFORE IT (i.e. Al- Qur’ân); and He (i.e. Allâh) sent down the AT-TAURAT (of Mûsâ-Moses) and AL-INJEEL (of Îsâ-Jesus) before THIS (i.e. al- Qur’ân), as a guide to mankind, and He (i.e. Allâh) sent down the Criterion (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) (of Judgment between right and wrong).”

Chapter 35 verse 31. “That which We (i.e. Allâh) have revealed to thee (i.e. Muhammad) of the Book is the Truth, - CONFIRMING WHAT WAS (REVEALED) BEFORE IT (i.e. al- Qur’ân) : for Allâh is assuredly- with respect to His servants - well acquainted and fully Observant.”

Chapter 20 verse 133. “They say: “Why does He (i.e. Muhammad) not bring us a Sign from His Rabb?" Has not a Clear Sign come to them of (all) THAT WAS IN THE FORMER BOOKS OF REVELATION?”

MUHAMMAD CONFIRMS ALL PREVIOUS MESSENGERS, WHICH MEANS THAT ALL THEIR MESSAGES ARE NOW SAFE GUARDED IN AL-QUR’AN: REFER Chapter 20 verse 133

Chapter 37 verse 37. “NAY! HE (i.e. MUHAMMAD) HAS COME WITH THE (VERY) TRUTH, AND HE CONFIRMS (THE MESSAGE OF) THE MESSENGERS (BEFORE HIM).”

Please pay attention to this verse carefully. The first part says: Muhammad has come with the TRUTH (AL-HAQQ) which is Al-Qur’ân, as also mentioned in Chapter 10 verse 32, see below! The next part of the verse states Muhammad confirms the messengers before his time. To confirm the messengers also means to verify / confirm the messages that were given to them for their people, as stated in 14-4.

And that is exactly what Allâh says in the following AYÂT: I have to repeat some parts of the abovementioned verses to remind ourselves of the following:

Chapter 3 verse 3. “It is He (i.e. Allâh) who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth the Book, CONFIRMING WHAT WENT BEFORE IT (i.e. Al- Qur’ân); and He (i.e. Allâh) sent down the At-Taurat (of Mûsâ) and Al-Injeel (of Îsâ) before THIS (i.e. Qur’ân), as a guide to mankind, […]”

Chapter 35 verse 31. “That which We (i.e. Allâh) have revealed to thee (i.e. Muhammad) of the Book is the Truth, - CONFIRMING WHAT WAS (REVEALED) BEFORE IT (i.e. Al- Qur’ân): […].”

Chapter 20 verse 133. “They say: "Why does he (Muhammad) not bring us a Sign from His Rabb?" Has not a Clear Sign come to them of (all) THAT WAS IN THE FORMER BOOKS OF REVELATION?”

Chapter 41 verse 43. “NOTHING IS SAID TO THEE (MUHAMMAD) THAT WAS NOT SAID TO THE MESSENGERS BEFORE THEE (MUHAMMAD): that thy Rabb has at His command (all) forgiveness as well as a Most grievous penalty.” [Meaning the message is the same and the language is the same]

The verse Chapter 5 verse 48, clearly corroborates verses Chapter 41 verse 43 same message given to Muhammad, Chapter 20 verse 133 all previous scriptures are safe-guarded in Al-Qur’ân, and Chapter 37 verse 37 that Muhammad verifies the all the previous messengers and their messages.

Chapter 5 verse 48. “To thee (i.e. Muhammad) We (i.e. Allâh) sent the Scripture in truth, CONFIRMING THE SCRIPTURE THAT CAME BEFORE IT (i.e. Al- Qur’ân), AND GUARDING IT (previous Scriptures) IN SAFETY (inside of Al-Qur’ân): so judge between them by what Allâh hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the truth that hath come to thee (Muhammad). […]”

Chapter 42 verse 13. “THE SAME DEEN has He (i.e. Allâh) established for you as that which He (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Nûh (Noah)- that which We (i.e. Allâh) have sent by inspiration to thee (i.e. Muhammad) - and that which We (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Ibrâhîm(Abraham), Mûsâ (Moses), and Îsâ (Jesus): Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in deen (religion), and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allâh, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allâh chooses to Himself those whom He (i.e. Allâh) pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).”

Note: “THE SAME DEEN (religion) has He (i.e. Allâh) established for you as that which He (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Nûh - the (same deen) which WE (i.e. Allâh) have sent by inspiration to thee (i.e. Muhammad) - and that which WE (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Ibrâhîm (Abraham), Mûsâ (Moses), and Îsâ (Jesus): […]”

Allâh repeats again that the message given to the previous messengers is the same as before in language and laws.

Therefore:

When one wants to know what Nabi Îsâ said to his people we find it in Al-Qur’ân. E.g, Chapter 3 verses 49/52 etc. What did Nabi Ibrâhîm say to his father and his people we find it in the Qur’ân What did Nabi Nûh say to his people and to his son; we find it in Al-Qur’ân. What did nabi Mûsâ say to Firoun, we find it in Al-Qur’ân and so on and so forth. What did Muhammad say to his people and their questions to him, we find it in Al-Qur’ân. The word Firoun is Arabic and not from another language. Allâh says His words are Arabic.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

LET US TAKE THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE:

Firoun was the overlord of a vast empire – Misr- and is specially mentioned because of his strenuous hatred of the Messages of Allâh that Mûsâ was sent with. Mûsâ grew up in Firóun’s (Pharaoh’s)house since a baby! Could Mûsâ have spoken any language other than Firoun’s? Suppose that Mûsâ went to Firoun and delivered Allâh’s message in a slave language, i.e. Hebrew which the Old Testament lays claim to. Can anyone think it is possible that Firoun would have even given a hearing to Mûsâ? He would never have listened because as the King / Overlord of his vast country he will never stoop so low to learn a slave language and he claimed to be god as is mentioned in Al-Qur’ân! So the communication must have been in Arabic. Even today the people of Egypt speak a dialect of Arabic irrespective of their religious belief.

Yacub and his sons (and family) had settled in Misr long before Mûsâ’s time as the Qur’ân informs us. Yacub and his family must have spoken Arabic. Their progeny were made slaves after his and his family’s demise by the rulers of Misr as stated in Al-Qur’ân (refer to surah Baqara) and there is a lot of mention of the sufferings of the Banî Isrâeel. That is why Mûsâ tells Firoun to release them from the bondage. Refer to Chapter 2 for a detailed history in Al-Qur’ân.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Al-Qurân is Al-Haqq (Absolute Truth):

Chapter 10 verse 32. “Such is Allâh, your real Cherisher and Sustainer: apart from Al-Haqq, what (remains) but error? How then are ye turned away?”

Chapter 6 verse 153. “Verily, This is My way, leading straight: follow IT (i.e. Al-Qurân): follow not (other) paths: they will scatter you about from His (great) path: thus doth He (i.e. Allâh) command you. That ye may be Righteous.”

Chapter 6 verse 19. “Say: “What thing is Most weighty in evidence?” Say: Allâh is witness between me (i.e. Muhammad) and you; THIS QUR’ÂN HATH BEEN REVEALED TO ME (i.e. MUHAMMAD) BY INSPIRATION, THAT I (i.e. Muhammad) MAY WARN YOU AND ALL WHOM IT (i.e. AL- QUR’ÂN) REACHES. Can ye possibly bear witness that besides Allâh there is another Allâh.” Say: “Nay! I (i.e. Muhammad) cannot bear witness!” Say: "But in truth He is the one Allâh, and I (i.e. Muhammad) truly am innocent of (your blasphemy of) joining others with Him (i.e. Allâh).”

Allâh says that Muhammad is a universal messenger: Meaning for ALL MANKIND:

Chapter 34 verse 28. “We have not sent thee (i.e. Muhammad) but as a UNIVERSAL (MESSENGER) TO MANKIND, giving them glad tidings, and warning them (against sin), but most of mankind understand not.”

Regarding Chapter 14 verse 4:

If we apply just one verse for the interpretation of Chapter 14 verse 4 then the over one and half billion (non Arab) Muslims should never accept the Qur’ân as a Universal Message and neither can mankind accept Muhammad as a Universal Messenger! It will also mean that numerous ayât that speak about the Qur’ân and Muhammad being for all of mankind are in Al- Qur’ân for no purpose! It would furthermore mean that Allâh made a mistake when He said the message of Al- Qur’ân is for all of mankind! Allâh says in Chapter 6 verse 38 He omitted nothing; in Chapter 20 verse 52; Chapter 19 verse 64 that He never makes mistakes and never forgets!

___________________________________________________________________________________

NOW WE COME TO THE JEWS: HOW DID THEY COME INTO EXISTENCE? THE QUR’ÂN ANSWERS:

Firstly: There is not one verse in the entire Qur’ân where Allâh says He sent Jewish Prophets. The messengers came from the list mentioned above. All have Arabic names.

The Jews came into existence through the raping (twice) as mentioned in the following ayât:

Nabi Mûsâ came to the Banî Isrâeel – the linage from Yacub, Yusuf, and others as mentioned Chapter 6 verses 84/90: and they came from the linage of Nûh:

Chapter 17 verse 3. “O ye that are sprung from those whom We (i.e. Allâh) carried (in the Ark) with Nûh! Verily he was a devotee Most grateful.”

Allâh gave two warnings of His punishment to the Banî Isrâeel for their evils:

Chapter 17 verse 4. “And We (i.e. Allâh) gave (clear) warning to the Banî Isrâeel in the Book, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)!” Chapter 17 verse 5. “When the first of the warnings came to pass, We (i.e. Allâh) sent against you Our servants given to terrible warfare: they entered the very in-most parts of your homes; and it was a warning (completely) fulfilled.”

The first warning was fulfilled with the first punishment: The in-most part refers to the most valuable thing a man prizes, i.e. his wife was violated and the children that were born were through the raping were illegitimate. (see further on for the law governing these illegitimate children)

Allâh turned in mercy to them:

Chapter 17 verse 6. “Then did We (i.e. Allâh) grant you the return as against them: We (i.e. Allâh) gave you increase in resources and sons, and made you the more numerous in man-power.”

Then the second of Allâh’s warnings came to pass, because they reverted again to evil: again the enemies destroyed and raped their women, and that is how the Jews came into existence.

Chapter 17 verse 7. “If ye did well, ye did well for yourselves; if ye did evil, (ye did it) against yourselves. So when the second of the warnings came to pass, (Allâh permitted your enemies) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your temple as they had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power.”

Allâh has left a warning if they do it again:

Chapter 17 verse 8. “It may be that your Rabb may (yet) show mercy unto you; but if ye revert (to your sins), We (i.e. Allâh) shall revert (to Our punishments): and We (i.e. Allâh) have made Hell a prison for those who reject (Faith).”

We find in Al-Qur’ân information about when the Jews came into existence. It was AFTER NABȊ MÛSÂ (Moses), and they were present during Nabî Eesa and Nabî Muhammad’s time. Never during Ibrâhîm’s time as stated in verses quoted below! So during Ibrâhîm’s time there were no Jews in existence. Hebrew never existed. In fact the word Hebrew originates from the Greek language as we find in the Oxford dictionaries. The Greeks designed Hebrew just as the Hollanders designed Afrikaans when they colonized the Cape.

Allâh says that this Qur’ân is the right guidance in all matters, including the correct understanding of why Allâh used Hadu for the Jews and Banî Isrâeel for the children of Yacub:

Chapter 17 verse 9. “Verily this Qur’ân doth guide to that which is most right (or stable), and giveth the glad tidings to the believers who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a magnificent reward;”

Look at Allâh’s mercy: He told the messengers after nabi Mûsâ to judge the Hadu (Jews) according to Allâh’s messages although they are illegitimate:

Chapter 5 verse 44. “It was We (Allâh) who revealed the At-Taurât (to Mûsâ): therein was guidance and light. BY ITS (i.e. At-Taûrat) STANDARD HAVE BEEN JUDGED THE JEWS, by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to Allâh’s will, by the rabbis and the doctors of law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allâh’s Book, and they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear Me (i.e. Allâh), and sell not My Signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allâh hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers.”

____________________________________________________________________________________

Note that Allâh always differentiates between the Banî Isrâeel and the Hadu (Jews) in Al-Qur’ân! That is why we find that there is a difference of wording in the following ayât regarding Nabî Mûsâ and Nabî Îsâ: Mûsâ says to the people he was sent to as: O my people! Because the Jews were not yet in existence: They came into existence after they continued to vex Nabî Mûsâ and after he passed away they were punished twice as stated in the verses quoted above.

Chapter 61 verse 5. “And remember, Mûsâ said to his people: "O MY PEOPLE! Why do ye vex and insult me, though ye know that I am the messenger of Allâh (sent) to you?" Then when they went wrong, Allâh let their hearts go wrong. For Allâh guides not those who are rebellious transgressors.”

Nabi Îsâ was sent to the Banî Isrâeel and says: O Children of Israel! Notice Îsâ says: sent to Banî of Isrâeel, because he was sent to them and not to the Hadu! Yet he was to judge the Hadu, (who were illegitimate) according to Allâh’s law- Chapter 5 verse 44.

Chapter 61 verse 6. “And remember, Îsâ, the son of Maryam, said: “O Banî of Isrâeel! I am the messenger of Allâh (sent) to you, CONFIRMING THE LAW (which came) before me, and giving glad tidings of an Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.”But when he came to them with clear Signs, they said, “This is evident sorcery!”

__________________________________________________.

Allâh says they write their books themselves!

Chapter 2 verse 79. “Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say:"This is from Allâh," to traffic with it for miserable price! - woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.”

Allâh says their book is not part of Allâh book!

Chapter 3 verse 78. “There is among them a section who distorts the Book with their tongues: (as they read) you would think it is a part of the Book, but it is no part of the Book; and they say, "That is from Allâh," but it is not from Allâh. It is they who tell a lie against Allâh, and (well) they know it!”

Chapter 2 verse 140. “DO YOU CLAIM THAT IBRÂHÎM AND ISMAIL AND ISHÂQ AND YACUB AND THEIR DESCENDANTS WERE `JEWS' OR `CHRISTIANS'?” Say: “Do you know more than (Allâh) does? And who could be wicked than he who suppresses a testimony given to him by God? Yet (i.e. Allâh) is not unmindful.”

Chapter 3 verse 65. “Ye People of the Book! Why dispute you about Ibrâhîm, WHEN THE AT-TAURÂT AND AL-INJEEL WERE NOT REVEALED TILL AFTER HIM? Have ye no understanding?”

Chapter 3 verse 67. “IBRÂHÎM WAS NOT A JEW NOR YET A CHRISTIAN; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to Allâh (in Islam), and he joined not gods with Allâh.”

Ibrâhîm lived thousands of years before the Hadu (i.e. Jews) who spoke a Greek designed language that came into existence! The knowledge of Al-Qur’ân is from Allâh’s own knowledge which is perfect

Chapter 4 verse 166. “BUT ALLÂH BEARS WITNESS THAT WHAT HE (i.e. ALLÂH) HATH SENT UNTO THEE (i.e. MUHAMMAD) HE (i.e. ALLÂH) HATH SENT FROM HIS (i.e. ALLÂH’S OWN) KNOWLEDGE, and the malâ’ikah bear witness: but enough is Allâh for a witness.”

Chapter 18 verse 109. “Say: “If the ocean were ink (wherewith to write) the words of my Rabb, SOONER WOULD THE OCEAN BE EXHAUSTED THAN WOULD THE WORDS OF MY RABB, even if We (Allâh) added another ocean like it, for its aid.”

Chapter 31 verse 27. “And if all the trees on earth were pens and the ocean (were ink), with seven oceans behind it to add to its (supply), YET WOULD NOT THE WORDS OF ALLÂH BE EXHAUSTED (in the writing): for Allâh is Exalted in power, full of wisdom.”

Chapter 4 verse 46. “Of the Jews there are those who displace words from their (right) places, and say: "we hear and we disobey"; and "hear what is not heard"; and "Ra'ina"; with a twist of their tongues and a slander to Faith. If only they had said: "we hear and we obey"; and "Do hear"; and "Do look at us"; it would have been better for them, and more proper; but Allâh hath cursed them for their unbelief; and but few of them will believe.”

Al-Qur’an has Divine words:

Chapter 74 verses 24/26. “Then said he (i.e. the unbeliever): "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" “Soon will I (i.e. Allâh) cast him (i.e. unbeliever) into Hell-Fire!”

Chapter 41 verse 40. “Those who pervert the truth in Our (i.e. Allâh’s) AYÂT are not hidden from Us. Which is better? - he that is cast into the fire, or he that comes safe through, on the Day of Judgment? Do what ye will: verily He (i.e. Allâh) seeth (clearly) all that ye do.”

MUHAMMAD A WARNER AND BRINGER OF GLAD TIDINGS TO ALL NATIONS!

Chapter 42 verse 48: “If then they turn away, WE (i.e. (i.e.Allâh) HAVE NOT SENT THEE (i.e. MUHAMMAD) AS A GUARD OVER THEM. THY (i.e. MUHAMMAD’S) DUTY IS BUT TO CONVEY (THE MESSAGE OF AL-QUR’ÂN). And truly, when We (i.e. Allâh) give man a taste of a Mercy from Ourselves (i.e. from Allâh), he doth exult thereat, but when some ill happens to him, on account of the deeds which his hands have sent forth, truly then is man ungrateful!”

THE BEST HADÎTH IS ALLÂH’S HADÎTH:

Chapter 39 verse 23. “Allâh has revealed (from time to time) z ah’sanal hadîth the most beautiful Hadîth (message) in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Rabb[5] tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allâh’s praises. Such is the guidance of Allâh. He guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as Allâh leaves to stray, can have none to guide.”

Every other hadîth is idle tales:

Chapter 31 verse 6. “But there are among mankind, those who purchase ulawal ‘hadîth (idle tales), without knowledge (or meaning), to mislead (mankind) from the path of Allâh and throw ridicule (on the Path): for such there will be a humiliating penalty.”
