2:146 Those to whom We gave the Scripture before, recognize this (Revelation) as they
recognize their own children but some of them (their scholars) conceal the
truth, and they very well know it. [The advent of Prophet Muhammad from
the Ishmaelite descendants of Abraham has been foretold in the Bible. Genesis
21:13-18. Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, 16:7. See QXP 2:125. Historically,
the Gospel of Saint Barnabas, which was accepted and widely read
in churches, has the name 'Muhammad' in it. But Pope Gelasius found the
Arabic name distasteful and banned that Gospel in 496 CE. The Italian translation
of Barnabas was discovered in Vienna, Austria in the 16th century]

6:20 Those who have been given the Scripture, recognize this (Message) as they recognize
their sons. Yet those who have squandered their own 'self' fail to accept
such undeniable truth.

Is it possible that the Western World understood “Salaat and Zakaat” better than the Muslims and applying it. ?
