A certain Sheikh is insisting that there are Hebrew words in Al-Qur’ân: e.g. Ismail, Mikaeel, and Jibreel. I told him over and over again there are NO HEBREW WORDS in Al-Qur’ân. ONLY ARABIC! He also said there are “Jewish Prophets.’ That is also a lie! I hope after studying this reply he will understand why there are no Hebrew or any other language words in Al-Qur’ân, and no such as Jewish Prophets!
This Sheikh believes chapter 14 verse 4 to mean that Allâh’s messages came in every language through His messengers which is an incorrect understanding.
I shall be using the method of Tasreef (refer to 17-41) and Tafseer (refer to 25-33) from within Al-Qur’ân to explain the ayah 14-4, and the claim that there are Hebrew words in Al-Qur’ân.
Let me begin by quoting the verse that we have a difference over. This needs to be EXPLAINED FROM AL-QUR’ÂN ALONE, and not by me or by anyone else.
14-4. “We (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 pleases and guides whom He pleases: and He is Exalted in power, full of Wisdom.”
To understand this 14-4 let me quote one of the main reasons for Revelation as stated in Al-Qur’ân by Allâh Himself:
16-64. “And We 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.”
42-10. “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.”
3-109. “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: 22-75; 2-253; 16-121). 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. Let me emphasize this please: The messengers Allâh chose were from the LINAGE mentioned in 3-33, and 6-84/90. (Those that are not mentioned as stated in 4-163/64 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 say “THE NAMES OF JEWISH PROPHETS” is a lie! 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. There were never Jewish Prophets. Why: Because the Jews came into existence through the raping by other people and so are illegitimate. I shall refer back to this 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 :
3-33. Allâh did choose Adam and Nûh, the family of Ibrâhîm, and the family of 'Imran above all people, - 3-34. “OFFSPRING, one of the other: and Allâh heareth and knoweth all things.”
Who were these offspring that Allâh refers to in 3-33/4? They are mentioned in the following AYÂT :
6-84. “We (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:
6-85. “And Zakariya and Yahyâ, and Îsâ and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous:
6-86. “And Isma'il and Elisha, and Yunus, and Lut: and to all We (i.e.Allâh) gave favour above the nations:”
6-87. (to them) and to (mîn) some of their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We (Allâh) chose them, and We (i.e.Allâh) guided them to a straight way.” [All were not guided as Allâh informs us in Al-Qur’ân about nabi Ibrâhîm’s father and Nuh’s son]
6-88. “This is the guidance of Allâh. He (i.e. Allâh)giveth that guidance to whom He pleaseth, of His worshippers. If they were to join other gods with Him (i.e.Allâh), all that they did would be vain for them.”
6-89. “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 (Allâh) shall entrust their charge to a new people who reject them not.
6-90. “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."
How did these messengers convey Allâh’s messages: Allâh informs us it was THROUGH HIS WORDS ONLY which are Arabic:
10-82. “And Allâh by HIS WORDS DOTH PROVE AND ESTABLISH HIS TRUTH, however much the sinners may hate it!”
41-3. “A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail; - A QUR’ÂN IN ARABIC, for people who understand;”-
43-3. “We have made it A QUR’ÂN IN ARABIC, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom).”
12-2. “We 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! Note also that the recipient is an Arab who understands Arabic and so the message must be in Arabic!!! Refer also to 26-195 to 199!
41-44. “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 41-44 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: 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 spirit of Faith and Truth- to thy (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 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.”
Now to the point that Sheikh brought up: that 14-4 to his understanding is that Allâh sent His message in other languages (if I understood him correctly)
To-recap: I have given 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 3-33, 6-84/90, 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. 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.
30-22. “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:
38-88. “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.
14-1. “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:
7-158. “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.
34-28. “WE (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 :
3-3. “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. al- Qur’ân), as a guide to mankind, and He (Allâh) sent down the Criterion (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) (of Judgment between right and wrong).”
35-31. “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.”
20-133. “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?”
[Note: irrespective if the word ‘all’ is removed because it does not appear in the Arabic, it still does not change the fact that PREVIOUS SCRIPTURES (in plural) are mentioned, meaning all that was previously revealed!]
Why do I say that? Because of the following ayah:
37-37. “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 10-32, 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:
3-3. “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, […]”
35-31. “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) : […].”
20-133. “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?”
41-43. “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 5-48, clearly corroborates verses 41-43 same message given to Muhammad, 20-133 all previous scriptures are safe-guarded in Al-Qur’ân, and 37-37 that Muhammad verifies the all the previous messengers and their messages.
5-48. “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). […]”
42-13. “THE SAME DEEN has He (i.e. Allâh) established for you as that which He (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Nûh - the which We (Allâh) have sent by inspiration to thee (i.e. Muhammad) - and that which We (i.e. Allâh) enjoined on Ibrâhîm, Mûsâ, and Îsâ: 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 (Allâh) pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).”
Read again: “THE SAME DEEN 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, Mûsâ, and Îsâ: […]” Is this not clear enough that Allâh repeats again and again that the message given to the previous messengers is the same as before in language and laws?
When one wants to know what Nabi Îsâ said to his people we find it in Al-Qur’ân . E.g. 3-49/52 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. I believe Al-Qur’ân and no other book and nobody else!!!
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 Firoun’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 surah 2 for a detailed history Al-Qur’ân.
Al-Qurân is Al-Haqq (Absolute Truth):
10-32. “Such is Allâh, your real Cherisher and Sustainer: apart from Al-Haqq, what (remains) but error? How then are ye turned away?”
6-153. “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.”
6-19. “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:
34-28. “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 the language meaning in 14-4 then the over one and half billion Muslims should never accept the Qur’ânas 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! Examples: chapter 7 verses 157 & 158; chapter 6 verse 19, verse chapter 34 verse 28, (see above). 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 6-38; 20-52; 19-64 that He never makes mistakes and forgets nothing!
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. That is another lie! Allâh says He omitted nothing, forgot nothing and never makes mistakes (6-38; 20-52; etc). 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 6-84/90: and they came from the linage of Nûh:
17-3. “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 warning of His punishment to the Banî Isrâeel for their evils:
17-4. “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)!” 17-5. “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:
17-6. “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.
17-7. “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:
17-8. “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 nabi MÛSÂ and they were present during nabi 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, so 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:
17-9. “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: (Bukari says illegitimate children do not inherit if I remember correctly- but Qur’ân gives them rights of inheritance from the mother)
5-44. “It was We (Allâh) who revealed the At-Taurât (to Mûsâ): therein was guidance and light. BY ITS 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 also we find that there is a difference of wording in the following ayât regarding Mûsâ and Îsâ: Mûsâ says to the people he was sent to as: O my people!
61-5. “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 so 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- 5-44.
61-6. “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!"
I want to be explicitly clear that I accept only Al-Qur’ân and no other book as guidance. Allâh says judge only according to His Book, otherwise one will be classed as an unbeliever etc in 5-44, 45, and 47. Herewith my reasons are from Al-Qur’ân why I reject all other books claiming to be Divine or a book of guidance:
Allâh says they write their books themselves!
2-79. “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!
3-78. “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!”
2-140. “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 more wicked than he who suppresses a testimony given to him by God? Yet (i.e. Allâh) is not unmindful.”
3-65. “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?”
3-67. “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.”
Question: Could Ibrâhîm, a messenger of Allâh have named his son Ismail from the Hebrew language when Hebrew was non-existent during his time? Only a person sick of mind can make that kind of statement. 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! Can it be that the All-Knowing Creator will have to ‘borrow man made words’?
4-166. “BUT ALLÂH BEARS WITNESS THAT WHAT HE (ALLÂH) HATH SENT UNTO THEE (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.”
HEBREW LANGUAGE: It is an affront to Allâh, and Allâh’s knowledge / Book for anyone to even dare make suggestions that the Qur’ân has Hebrew words that are man-made! Any sane person would have noted the following AYÂT in Al-Qur’ân: Allâh says so beautifully and eloquently that the HIS WORDS WILL NEVER BE EXHAUSTED!!!
18-109. “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.”
31-27. “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.”
Reading the above verses any intelligent person will never argue with irrational arguments that there are Hebrew (or of any other language) words in Al-Qur’ân, as if Allâh did not have enough of His own words, but had to ‘borrow’ from an illegitimate nation who are mostly liars:
4- 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.”
Look again and at this verse and pay attention to:
The Jews at the time of Muhammad spoke Arabic!!! Why? because Allâh says they displace QUR’ÂNIC ARABIC words: e.g. Ra'ina
Allâh has cursed them for doing so.
Yet this sheikh insists that the Hebrew language was in existence during Ibrâhîm’s time which is a complete lie. Refer again to 2-140; 3-65 and 3-67!!!
Allâh ‘borrowed’ words from these liar Jews
The following is a warning to those who do not have knowledge and want to impose their own ideas:
17-36. “And pursue not that of which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) the heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).”
The following is a severe warning to those who think or suggest that there are man-made words in Al- Qur’ân: Take note! They will be cast into hell!
74-24/26. “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!”
41-40. “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.”
In closing I want to say that I do not expect anyone to agree with what I have written. But what I do expect is that one should verify from the Qur’an themselves and decide whether to reject or accept the explanations which I have extracted from al-Qur’ân only.
MUHAMMAD (as) A WARNER AND BRINGER OF GLAD TIDINGS TO ALL NATIONS!
42-48: “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 FOLLOWING ARE THE 92 REFERENCES IN AL-QUR’ÂN WHICH STATE MUHAMMAD AND ALL THE MESSENGERS WERE SENT BY ALLÂH AS WARNERS AND BRINGERS OF GOOD TIDINGS ONLY.
