Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam.
O Allah Allah He was Javi amin, Oman,
old overlay Samira even a shape on the regime. This is him. Omar sanaka Lara machalilla and I mean,
a call also lies a la la la la he was so long live Reno.
Harper you have been a
Buddhist us he come upon Allah salatu salam, despite your brothers and sisters. The topic I will be addressing today is very important topic indeed. This topic can potentially
bring three Abrahamic faiths together.
Not that we are separate. We live on this planet together. We are part of the human family. We've had long periods of coexistence without any disturbances. Islamic history testifies to that fact that Muslims, Jews and Christians lived together for centuries. Within the domains of Islam, for example, it happened in a London was in Spain, it happened in Baghdad, it happened in Damascus. It happened throughout the Muslim civilization.
So for over 1000 years, Muslims, Christians and Jews lived in relative harmony, there have been periods of occasional outbursts of violence due to external causes or geopolitical issues. But the overwhelming majority
as far as the time is concerned,
Muslims and others lived in peace and interacted with each other.
Many Christians had written works on Islam. Many Jewish scholars, roadworks and Islam, and many Muslims wrote works on Christianity and Judaism. So this interaction, this critical thinking, this analysis of religions and sharing these views with each other is not alien to Islamic civilization.
Very often on the news on media, you hear that Muslims are intolerant towards other views, which is a lie. It is a white lie, as they say, you know, why is it a lie? Because when we look at our history, we see that Christians and Jewish scholars are writing words criticizing Islam, in a civil language, in an academic language, they were tolerated. In fact, their works were taken on by Muslim other Muslim scholars, and Muslim scholars wrote, rebuttals, reputations, in due course, none of these Jewish or Christian scholars were crucified or killed or burned alive. That didn't happen that was happening in Europe, definitely.
It was happening in mainland Europe for centuries, where if people were to criticize Christianity, or the main doctrine of the Church, or if someone was to write a work against the doctrine of the Trinity, even if such a person was Christian, would be potentially but at stake.
And we have examples of such incidents.
We know where people were burned at stake. One of those people is Miguel servito, or Michael servetus. He wrote a book against the doctrine of the Trinity, to criticize the doctrine and to argue that this doctrine doesn't actually come from the Bible. It is not biblical, it is not Christian. It wasn't taught by Jesus Christ. So the church adopted it. And it is a corruption in the religion of Christianity. He was burned at stake in 1553 in Geneva, for writing this book, and his books are burnt with him. No such incidents took place in the Islamic world or in within the Muslim civilization, people writing books, they were criticizing each other, they picked on each other, the
language of civil the language was
academic, and this is how it was dealt with.
So the issue of Mohammed salatu salam in the Bible has been dealt with a number of times throughout Muslim history. scholars were writing books on these topics.
In fact, as early as the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam some companions are realized that the Prophet Muhammad Allah Islam is clearly mentioned in the view in
a Bible. Firstly, the Quran makes the claim, no Quran in chapter seven verse 157 solara verse 150.
servando Quran makes a very clear, claim that this unlettered prophet and W ami, unlettered, Prophet, God do not home October in the Torah while in jail, they find him mentioned. They find him the unlettered prophet mentioned with them, and the Torah and in the Gospel. So the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, according to the Quran is mentioned in the previous scriptures. Whether those scriptures are Christian scriptures, or Jewish scriptures, he's there. So this is the claim the Quran makes. And as we walk around with a public book, as soon as it was revealed, it was recited, read publicly in prayers, the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, in the 1000s, memorize the Quran.
So it became public immediately. With the Bible. That wasn't the case. First of all, you know, biblical text, it took the Christian world or Christendom almost three and a half centuries to canonize it. There was no such thing as the New Testament, for example, for the first three centuries of Christianity, the document was not established. It didn't exist.
Because different Church Fathers disagreed as to the validity of different lists. They all had different lists of authoritative books.
We have 27 books now in the New Testament, as we know it today. But in the first three centuries, that wasn't the case. different lists, different at different times in different places, according to different people. So we have many church fathers who have different views on the Scripture. Firstly, for the first two centuries, the New Testament, or the writings of the New Testament, weren't even considered scripture. They were simply known as the memoirs of the apostles. Later on in the third century, and in the fourth century, scholars, church fathers increasingly started to refer to these writings as the Scripture. But when in the first in the second century, Christian
scholars, or leaders when they would say the word scripture, they they meant the Old Testament, the Jewish books, not the New Testament.
But the Quran wasn't like that. Even as far as the 12th century, the Bible was the business of the clergy, the monks, they would read Latin, they would study Latin, they would write the Scriptures for the masses, the one who is plowing the field, in the field somewhere, even in Britain, for example, here, you know, when I was driving from London to Cambridge, beautiful fields you see on the way you know, the beautiful English countryside, there's nothing like it, second to none. Beautiful. These fields are plowed by farmers. They didn't have a clue what's in the Bible. Bible was explained to them by the clergy.
When it comes to the Quran, that wasn't the case. It was made public immediately.
And the simplest of meant from the companions of the Prophet, new water Quran is saying to them, because they were Arabs, primarily, whether they were bad rain or sharp businessmen, or eschewed politicians, or you know, people who were educated, they knew what the Quran is saying, because the language was very clear. The Quranic language is moving, it's very clear. They understood what the Quran meant. So it was made public. So the Quran made a public claim that this unlettered prophet first of all there are two points that he's unlettered. He hasn't been to a university, he doesn't know what reading or writing books is. He doesn't know. He hasn't been to a school or a college or
an institution of higher learning. He hasn't taken knowledge from any professor or any teacher as such, right? He is completely unlettered, not illiterate, we don't like to use the word illiterate for the purposes of illiteracy is is a problematic topic altogether. He was unlettered didn't know how to read write. And the ground makes it very clear. So that's one point is public. And people who grew up with a new that is unlettered abakada, woreda, injera.
companions of mine when I found, you know, these people, or others, they knew that Hamas online sort of doesn't know how to read write, because it was a privilege. At that time, those who knew how to read and write are known even to this day.
countries with very low literacy rate, right.
For example, India, take India as an example. You have a village somewhere in the middle of the desert of Rajasthan, for example, and you only know two or three people
Don't know how to read and write. So when there's a letter that comes from someone, they run to this person, can you briefly read this letter for me and explain it to me, I don't know what it means. This situation was was far bigger or far more
severe or worse in the time of the Prophet, people who knew how to read and write were known in the society. So the Prophet wasn't one of them, he was not one of them. And ally explains this reason why that was the case in the Quran that you did not read a book before this, you did not write a book before this, but your right hand so that they cannot claim your adversaries, your critics or your opponents cannot claim that you are the one who is forging the text of the Quran. The Quran is not your doing. It is not the creation of your mind.
are some simpler letter. That's one point the worst makes the second point is that he is mentioned as unlettered in the previous scriptures.
So almost in Qatar, you know, one of his biggest companions, or their loved one was reading the Jewish scriptures. And he ran to the public.
So y'all know some of you are mentioned here, you actually mentioned it. We were not clear as to what passages he was reading and the progress of us nobody saw a copy of Torah in his hand, he became very, you know, angry.
Mama. If Moosa was alive today, if Moses was alive today, he would have had no choice but to follow me, because I am the final messenger of Allah. Okay, so this is an example of companions that we know the love in a bath of the log on the comments around the Quran and others, they understood that the promise of Aslan was indeed mentioned in the scriptures of the Jews and the Christian. So the question now stands, where?
And how? It's a very bold claim, isn't it? That Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is mentioned in the previous scriptures Where? That's the question. The Jews read the scriptures almost every single day. The Christians read them almost every single day. Why can't Why can't Why can't they see it? So let's see whether the claim of the Quran
you know, valid at all whether it holds any water. So let's go to the Jewish scriptures and see whether the prophet of Islam is foretold anywhere as an unlimited prophet. So I before I do that, I lost you what happened in the cave of have anyone? What happened in the cable corral?
Anyone? Don't be shy. Don't worry. Just please.
He told read. What happened? yawning. Okay, that's fine. And then what did the Prophet say?
I cannot read
Okay. Have you ever read the Bible?
Never. How old are you? 14 did I teach you the story?
and teach you the story. So you knew it from Islamic history? You've been taught from Islamic history as you were growing up that is what happened to the Polish celluloid salon in the cave of Hara. Do you all know the story?
Yes or no? Okay. In case you don't know.
Al Bukhari, when you open the book of Bukhari, the book or katavi, were the first the very first book of Satan Buhari. And you see the story I share on the long run, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, she narrates the story as to how this revelation started to come on the prophets, Allah lives and how it was revealed, or what was the process? How when did this actually happen? So she explains the populism used to when he was he reached the age of 40 or 35. He started to seclude himself away from the society, and he would go simply go away from the city, and, you know, contemplate or pray, or, you know, meditate in this cave, in the outskirts of the city of
Makkah, and the Cave of smell the Cave of Hara is in the in the wilderness. There's no one there, right? So he would sit there and contemplate and meditate. And then suddenly, one day an angel appears to him Jabra you, okay? And he takes him against his I mean, he came in human form, and he held him against his chest and squeezed him really hard.
And the prophets of Allah salami said I thought I was going to die.
And then he let him go. And really let him go. He said, that read
and the Prophet peace be upon him he responded. You know, naturally, ma Vicari and I have not learned I cannot read mana McCarty and I have not learned, read what? And then he took him again and he squeezed him out against his chest and he said that God is agreed. He's a man of the party in free time this was done. And then the first five verses of the Quran were given to the Prophet, they were revealed or they were set by the angel in the pocket heard them clearly. And what are those five verses Surah 96 of the Quran Chapter 96 is the first five verses of the blemish upon the regime. So that is Mira
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah inside Marlin Yama. So these five verses were given to the prophet SAW Salem, and in a state of shock. in a state of trauma, he runs to his wife for leisure.
And he says to her, some military zombie loony locker catchy to
cover me cover me, I, I fear for my life. I don't know what happened to me this experience, I don't know what it means. And then she takes into a matter of scriptures in the city of Makkah, Waka nofal, who was related to her Wanaka asks him what happened to you when he explains that this is what happened to me in the cave. And when waka who had already read the scriptures, because Monica was the man of scriptures, not Prophet Mohammed. He told Bahama, some lies alone, having heard the story,
how the Namu Salinas de la Moosa, this is the same spirit that came to Moses. This is the same angel that came to Moses, same Angel has come to you to give the same message and the Prophet, he still doesn't know he's a prophet of God. He doesn't know what this means. And Baraka is trying to comfort him. And then Baraka tells him, now what God has become, or he has
accepted, is profit already before he preached to him before the Prophet preach, because he doesn't know he's a prophet. Prophet Muhammad to this day to this time, doesn't know he is a prophet of God, he still doesn't understand what's happening. And what a guy is telling him You are a prophet, actually, you know, this is the same angel that came to Moses. And then Wanaka says, I wish I will be alive on the day when your people will drag you out. And now he's telling him what was going to happen. And the Prophet is shocked. My people are more collegial, they will drive me out Why? And then vaca tells him that anyone who came with this message
to anyone who received this message was driven out by his people. He's a prophet of God, and Monica died soon after. Soon after this incident he died. Having told the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam as to what he was talking about, so what normos amazingly, this hadith is in the book, Sal Bihari, when you pick up the Arabic version,
you read the word now moves there. How the nomos levinas del Allahu Allah Moosa.
What does the word novice means? Anyone?
Even those who know Arabic,
Girona, moose means
I don't know what okay, but is it an Arabic word now moose, how the nomos unluckiness, levinas, are Allahu Allah Musa, and who is directing the Hadees,
who's written the disease in Bahrain, Qatar was one of the first I think, is a second or third
who narrates the Hadith? I shall, I shall have the laquanda, the wife of the Prophet salallahu Salam. Now Namu was is actually the Greek word normals. She didn't know Greek. She simply narrating what she heard from either the Prophet himself or from someone who heard it from Khadija,
right? So I changed the rating.
And even the professionalism doesn't know what no, now moves means enormous. This was the word used by worker
What are you what nomos means? On now moves means and Baraka
means they're the spirit normals means spirit in the Greek language, okay? And spirit is the angel. He's talking about our role. Okay, our role codes, okay, who is that Who? Okay, so now, what Akka has told him who he is. So which spirit is he talking about? So when we go to the Old Testament, Chapter
29, verse 12.
of the book of Isaiah, Book of Isaiah.
In the book of Isaiah we are told,
and if I'm not mistaken, you have a Bible a,
give a Bible so I can read from the Bible directly. You don't, okay?
Because it's better to code the word so that you can hear exactly.
I have the Bible.
If I open it very quickly.
I have the entire
It'll be one minute before I get the text off.
So it's Isaiah 2912. The Book of Isaiah, chapter 29. actually don't have the text to one second. So now I have to use it.
Anyway, I know the words by heart, okay, I know the verse by heart. And if someone can quickly do a Google search, and take Isaiah 2912 out, the book of Isaiah Ay, ay, ay, ay ay ay, ah 2912.
Isaiah 29th row reads as follows. And it's a prophecy. How do we miss a prophecy? Because I've read the commentaries on the Bible. On the Old Testament, there is a scholar, German scholar who wrote commentaries on the book of Isaiah in particular, his name is Otto Kaiser.
He referred or he when he addressed this particular verse, is that
the three different versions? Yeah, no problem, Either is fine. Okay, here we have.
So there are a number of different versions, I will read the King James Bible, in English, okay.
So otter Kaiser said, this particular verse was a prophecy in the book of Isaiah doesn't say when it was fulfilled. But let's see, you all know the story now of the cave.
And the book is delivered to him that is not learned.
When the book is given to the one who is not learned, I'm quoting word by word.
And it is said to him, read, I pray thee, and he will say I am not learned.
I am not learned book of Isaiah chapter 29, verse 12, do you want me to repeat this?
Do you want me to repeat this, when the book is given to the one who is not learned is only not learned. And it is said to him read, which book is this? According to the story, we already know what happened in the case is no more on the revelation of the crown, when it is given to him, and it is set to read. And in Hebrew, the word is Accra, by the way, in Hebrew text of the book of Isaiah here, and it is a dream, read, I pray the read, and he will say, I cannot read. In other words, I have not learned at my party, in word by word 13 centuries before the prophet of Islam was born. These verses are put down in the book of Isaiah. Isaiah was a prophet Israelite prophet who lived
about eighth century BC. Okay, he was alive in the eighth century BC. And the oldest scroll of the book of Isaiah we have is among the dead sea scrolls, dusty scrolls were found in Jordan, the the density borromean, which is the Dead Sea, you know, in Jordan, it touches the land of Palestine, as well as the land of Jordan yet, it's called the Dead Sea. And there were some caves. So there was a Jewish community in the first century BC or first century CE II, called the scenes they had written these documents and they put them in jars, and they left oven case. So in the 1940s, an Arab a shepherd, looking for his goat, he went inside these caves and found these documents and they became
a sensations immediately. Everyone wanted a piece of them the Catholic Church, the Jewish rabbis, and other you know, book dealers, antique dealers, so they split them up, they are broken into different pieces and sold to different so some, some schools survived. Amazingly, the scroll of Isaiah which is one of the most important scrolls, as far as the prophecies about the Prophet Muhammad are concerned, survived in its entirety, and is still in Jerusalem museum. That particular scroll. Isaiah q1 is called, which is in Jerusalem museum to this day, was written about according to carbon dating between
100 bc before Christ, or 100 feet in between these two centuries. So they euro carbon dating, how does it work? It doesn't give you the exact date what it will tell you, it gives you two ends, okay? This is the earliest end and this is the latest and basically Yeah, so the earliest end is 100 bC 200 C, in between these two centuries, these clothes are thought to have been written. Okay, and this is still about five centuries before the prophet of Islam was born five centuries before Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ala was born. So these scrolls are there you can go and look, I mean, even you can the text is available online. You want to study? Yes.
Isaiah 2912 Isaiah 2912.
So it is there it mentioned clearly an unlettered prophet and this is exactly what what a cabin nofal was talking about when he heard the story. it you know, it rang a bell in his mind. Okay, hold on a second. Angel constraint tells you read and he says I cannot read manga be Korean. And then these five verses are given to him. So he remembers that in the book of Isaiah, he has read the story already and he says Allah,
Allah, Allahu Allah Musa, this is the same angel that came to masala Salah. So this is a prophecy foretelling? The coming of a prophet because when you go to verse 10, to verse it before, it talks about prophets, Allah God is talking to prophets. I mean, I am not saying this is in the pure form, how it was actually given to Isaiah, we don't even know what language is spoke. What we know today, the oldest form we have is in Hebrew, okay, written in an early text, which is very difficult to read.
And those are the Dead Sea Scrolls. Okay. Prior to the Dead Sea Scrolls or earlier texts, we had one of the meta retic Greek or sorry, not Greek, Hebrew texts. But What language did Isaiah speak, really speak the Hebrew of the Jews of today? No. did Moses speak Hebrew? We don't know, What language did Jesus speak with? To this day? scholars don't know what language Jesus spoke. Mostly he spoke Aramaic, a dialect spoken in Syria, but they're not sure they're not 100% sure, as to what language Jesus actually spoke. So this is one of the prophecies, clearly speaking about a prophet coming in the future when the book will be given to him. And he will be unlearned. And it will be
said to him read and he will say I have not learned I cannot read. If this is not Prophet Mohammed salatu salam, then who is it? That's the question.
Okay. One can easily claim
that you know, what, Mohammed knew about this Salam autism, he probably read it. He probably heard it from someone, or he probably knew about it somehow somehow. And he made us made up a story and he came to work with his story and even the story of work is made up people can claim right and people who claim in order to rejects your difficult things like this people do claim things like this. Or maybe it's the whole story is made up mama do about it. Now the reason why they can't reject the story because the story of Buhari is very old. Okay. And
even if people were to reject these literature and say, okay, it was the Hadith scholars who made up the story. people claim things like this, you know, it was a magazine who forged or they fake the story to substantiate the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. What are you gonna do with the Quran?
What you're gonna do with the quran quran was important. How do we know that? We have manuscripts of the Quran, from the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recently the carbon dated from the Quran, one found in Birmingham, it's only a parchment. But there are 1000s of others that haven't been yet. Carbon dating, carbon dating, once they are carbon dated Will you know we will have an accumulation of manuscripts from the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So the Quran is very ancient, it's very old. We have copies of the Quran, from the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam of this particular verse, chapter seven, verse 157, where it says, an unlettered prophet is mentioned with
them and the old in the books of the Jews and the book of the Christians, which is, indeed, what we're going to do with that. Was that also, no, of course not. It is definitely from the time of the world. The only claim that can make that Hammerstone ally so never knew about it. Okay, let's go with that claim, for argument's sake, that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam knew about this passage, and somehow he is the one who forged the story, but for crying out. Loud Avila is, in fact a story. And he has made this claim, but let's go to other passages in the Bible. They go further, and then they prophesize as to what will happen.
Number one, there are passages in the order
Isn't that clay claimed that a profit will come from Arabia?
from Arabia, a profit will emerge from Arabia and he will do x y Zed.
These are the things he will do. Okay, where are these passages? One of the first passages I'll take you to is,
is the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 33 verse two, you might have heard these passages before, but the commentary I'm going to give you might not have come across this commentary before, okay. In this passage, we are told
that there are three locations and from these three locations, somehow men of God will come, okay. Can you take out Deuteronomy 33 chapter 33, to Deuteronomy, chapter 33. To so that we can read and deal with it word by word, one by one after another.
Okay, stop there. The LORD came from Sinai, carry on.
And don't over saya
And he shone forth from Mount Paran. He came
from the south from he came from, he came.
He came with many hours of the holy ones, okay.
from the south from his mouth, okay. So three locations in
Sinai, sire and peran.
three locations. Do you agree? Deuteronomy 33. Two is this clearly there? Who came from Sinai?
Who came from Sinai
masala Salam? Yes. So that's a reference to musala Salah Moses, Mount Sinai, who came from saya saya is a mountain range in Palestine. So it is called in Arabic or sire in this language or in the Latin Isaiah anglicized version is
a mountain range in Palestine who came from Palestine. Jesus. Yes, he saw the salon Jesus. Yes. Where's prom?
That's the question now.
Where's para que se maka? Why?
Okay, let us explain why Peron is Arabia. First of all peran is generally Arabia. Okay, so we have three locations here. Number one, Mount Sinai, which is Egypt.
The mountain range range of Sire, which is where Palestine Jesus Peron
is Arabia. According to the Bible, it is Arabia. How do we know? According to the book of Genesis, chapter 21. We are told that Abraham, he took his wife, Hagar or Hydra and her son Ishmael, left them in the wilderness. It's in the Bible, by the way, Genesis, okay, we have the we have the Quranic version. And we have the biblical version, okay. They are slightly different, by the way, they are slightly different. So he left his wife and his child in the wilderness. And then we know the story, according to chapter 21, verse 21, that this child started to die. He was dying. Yes, he was dying and he started to, you know, because he was thirsty. There was no water there in this
wilderness. Brian just left them and is gone. Hydra is running
in between two mountains, according to the Islamic version Safa and Marwa. Yeah. When she comes back, she finds water under his feet.
And where is this happening according to the Bible?
Can you read the book of Genesis chapter 21? Verse 17. Where is this actually taking place?
chapter 21 verse 17, the book of Genesis
chapter 21, verse 17.
visited Sara as he had said,
this is Chuck, are you reading chapter 2117?
Yeah, I'm calling her the voice of the month and the angel of God called a pendant.
Okay. It says God has worked
heard the voice of the lad lad is the boy. And subsequently there was water provided Hri two verse 21 of the same chapter. Where did this happen?
he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran.
And we all know that his mile was left by his father in Arabia. Okay. Let's be more specific about it. If you go to the book of Isaiah, chapter 21,
Chapter 21, verse 13, we are told the dog is in Arabia in categorical words, okay, we are told qaisar if you go to chapter eyes, Isaiah book, have you got book of eyes? I opened it. Okay. You go to book of Isaiah, read chapter 21 verse 13.
because I am going to give you a specific riff reference from the Bible where it is clear that Iran is definitely Arabia. It is not nowhere else.
Chapter 21 verse 13, the heading is a prophecy about Arabia. Yes.
prophecy about Arabia, that's part of the text, right. And within this prophecy, we have the word Qaeda mentioned there, right. gaydar is in Arabia, who is Qaeda, Al Qaeda is a second son of his mind. If you go back to the book of Genesis, chapter 25, verse 13, it gives you the genealogy or not the genealogy sorry, it gives you the names of the sons of his mind. These are the names of the sons of his wife, number one, number two, number jobs, number two Keidar, and then the list goes on. Okay, Dawn is the second son of his model is Allah, who was in Arabia, if the sun is in Arabia, where is the father? Where is the Father? Father is also in Arabia, right? The father has to be in
Arabia for the son to be born in Arabia, right? So Arabia,
cannot is in Arabia. And it's mine, who was in Toronto, who is also in Arabia. So Karen is Arabia. So there are three locations there. Number one,
Mount Sinai number two, Palestine, the mountain range of size and number three, the mountain range of Paragon which is in Arabic foreign, okay. So we have three locations there. And what is being said here, they are very powerful messages will come from these three locations. We know Moses has come we know Jesus come and who came from Arabia.
myriad of saints will come Who are these myriad no other prophet had the following the Prophet Muhammad sallahu, wa Salaam had an entire history of prophethood. If you look at all the prophets, Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem has a largest following in the history of humanity to this day. In fact, his companions are over 100,000 people. And 10,000 of them we know by name.
And many are actually means 10s of 1000s. Amazingly, we know them by name, 10,000 of them in books. You know, there's a book by Emirati also the law, the motto for the Sahaba. In this book, we have 1000 biographies of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So there are three locations Arabia, Saudi Arabia is the location where the profit zone came from. Now if we go to the books of genealogies, okay, the books of unsub Okay.
The Arabs, you know, they remember the genealogies, even the horses, they knew that their horses were descended from the horse of so and so tribe and so as a tribe, they are genealogies of the horses, let alone men. So the Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa salam, his genealogy is well preserved.
the genealogy of the Prophet of Islam comes in three sections, one is agreed upon section there is a drama on this section from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to anon his ancestor of non linearity Gemma from a non tree smile, there is a Mangala for me smile to the face is yearning is problematic. This is don't don't even reach it, but from a non smile. The poisonous venom is number 60.
From Qaeda, direct descendant of Qaeda radar was the second side of his mind. This is what brings us to the next prophecy.
And amazingly these three locations
these three locations Sinai, Sai and phoron are mentioned in the Quran. where, according to Nakayama jovia, who
wrote a book on comparative religion on Christian
charity. You know, he was a student of Jamia scheffel Islam and Tamia Allah. You know what in April Tamia was a great scholar who lived in Syria during the period of the Mongol invasions. And he lived, you know, he outlived all these invasions and destruction
has, you know, caused by the Mongol invasions and he was writing a number of works. And he wrote a book on Java 11 Bugzilla.
And his students wrote relatively smaller work
had either via Java Your Holiness era, and this is a module here in this book he gave these three locations are mentioned exactly in the Quran. Do you know where they are? Anyone? Any guests?
Okay, thank you very much for that, you know, sort of thing Yeah.
You know, sort of the feeling that we're on what does it say what Jeannie was a don't see work only seen.
I mean, so what locations are these? What theory was a tune? By
the by the olive and the fig? Alive swearing by the olive and the fig which is the land of
Philistine palace, Palestine, the land of Palestine was already seen and by the Mount Sinai, which is where Moses, actually right will have been, I mean, and we will soon read. Makkah. Yes. And Ha ha ha. Amina, and this blessing land the land of Makkah. So the Quran mentions these three locations, in different words, okay. And amazingly, these locations are mentioned in the Bible in the book of Genesis chapter. So the book of Deuteronomy chapter 33, verse two, so where is how did this correspond? Okay? So, apart from that, even if we were to play the professor or someone was making these theories up, there is another very powerful by prophecy in the book of Isaiah chapter 42. The
entire chapter, the entire chapter is talking about one person.
And this person is the chosen one of God Mustafa is the chosen one of God
and with whom Allah God will be well pleased, he is coming in the future. It is a prophecy about a prophet King. According to Christopher north, Christopher North was a scholar. I don't know if he's alive today. In the 1960s, he wrote a book
titled the suffering servant of deutero. Isaiah, or the book he wrote was called the second Isaiah, he wrote a commentary on the book of Isaiah is specialized on the book of Isaiah Christopher north, from the University of Oxford. And in this book, he wrote that the Prophet king who is being foretold in this particular chapter, chapter 42, are you getting bored by the way? Are you bored? Are you sure?
You're getting bored? Tell me I'll ask you to give me a gift. Give me another cup of tea, because you're getting bored.
Yes, okay. I'll carry on.
Chapter 42, of the book of Isaiah, is the entire chapter is talking about a Masonic figure. The Jews when they read the chapter, they say, this is the Messiah, the Promised Messiah, the Promised Messiah. When the Christians read the passage, they say this is referring to Jesus, because he was the Promised Messiah. When the Muslim read that passage is normal. It is neither the Jewish Messiah, nor Jesus Christ, it is someone else.
And this is from Arabia. How do we know that? Now, we know the Jewish Messiah, the Promised Messiah, according to us, the Muslims as well as the Christians was Jesus, he was the Promised Messiah, but this passage cannot be possibly referring to Jesus Christ. Why? Let's see, because it has a number of
pointers, number of, you know,
signs about this person who will emerge in the future. Number one, he is the chosen one, oh god, no problem. Jesus can be that no issue, but his law will be spread on on the planet.
When he comes in verse number four of the same chapter states that islands will wait for his law,
he will deliver a law and this is not the Mosaic Law. This is not the Mosaic Law, by the way, because Isaiah lived almost four centuries after Moses.
And this prophecy is not talking about the Mosaic law because this person will bring a new law and iron shall wait for his law. His laws, or his law will go as far as islands of the world it will spread in the whole planet.
Okay, and he will spread judgment in the world and he will spread justice in the world. When he emerges, he will establish justice in the world. Basically, he will, you know, and This in itself is this verse one can, you know, it's a lesson of history and we can talk about it extensively how the Prophet Muhammad SAW Solomon, he came after him subsequently, his Sahaba, his companions took so much land and established justice in it. This is another topic in itself, okay.
Jesus never did that. By the way, Jesus, first of all, did not bring a new law rather what we know Jesus, he said, I have not come to bring
I have not not come to challenge the law. Rather, I've come to fulfill it in chapter, the book of Matthew, chapter five, verse 17, we are told that Jesus said that I have not come to abolish the law, rather, I've come to fulfill it. Okay. So he did not bring a new law. He himself was a follower of the Mosaic Law. It's not Jesus. Jesus did not govern the world. His law did not spread all over the planet. Islamic law did, Muslims did from southern China to, to, sorry, Northern China to southern France, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he died in the year 630. To see, right the year 11 632. In the year 732. Exactly A century later, we were the Muslims. We were the Muslims, anyone
northern northern France, in a place called point A, which is about 500 miles away from this place right now where we sit right now. Okay. And on the other side, Muslims were in northern China, and in the salt waters are already in India. In hint,
this was a largest empire world had ever known. And this was a again, it's not only the prophecy of Isaiah, it was prophesized in the Quran, Chapter 24 verse 55, what a lot of levina
what levina most of us
complete him. It is a promise of a lot of those who believe among you, and do right is these that Allah will give you succession in the land. Okay, so this was a promise made by God to the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and within three generations they are taken the largest chunk of land ever taken by any human group in history before.
So as I said, this law is spread on the islands it will go all over the place and he will spread justice in the land, and he will fight idol worshippers he will fight idol worshippers he will confront people who make graven images and say to these images, you are our gods supanova Jesus number four idol worshippers, he never fought anyone. He never had the chance to find anyone, Prophet Muhammad. On top of that, he will triumph against his enemies, his enemies will not be able to defeat him. Okay, this is not Jesus again. Okay. This is a prophet King. So Christopher north from the University of Oxford, he said, looking at the entire chapter, it seems that this is a
prophet king. He is a prophet as well as the King with temporary power, not only spiritual power, he will have temporary power, even more power in his hand, and he will be ruler and he will bring with him a system like Islam, by Allah, these are not my words. These are the words of a man writing. In the University of Oxford, his name is Christopher north, and he wrote a commentary in the book of Isaiah chapter 42 year old, he will bring something like Islam, a system like Islam.
And he's not a Muslim, by the way. So this is what he says this is the closest correspondence, or the the closest fulfillment of this is in Islam, basically.
So the passage goes on. How do we know he's coming from Arabia? That's the point. How do we know he's coming from Arabia, verse number 11, of the same chapter, chapter 42. States, let the villages of Qaeda rejoice. Let the villages of Qaeda rejoice. Let them lift up their voices. Let them sing a new song from the top top of the mountains. Now who is Qaeda?
Second Son of it's my Okay. Now, this is a global prophecy. Think about this. I'm trying to raise you know, some some points here. This is a global prophecy chapter 42 is talking about a Masonic figure of Prophet King was coming in the future is a prophecy about someone coming in the future with a new law. It's a global prophecy. But then suddenly in verse 11,
let the village of radar rejoice villages of Qaeda Why would you fight to certain villages in Arabia and ask them to rejoice? Why? Why Arabia, why kids are in particular
When the prophesy is global, let them rejoice let them sing a new song from the top of the mountains. What happens when you go to Hajj?
Jebel Rama what do you do?
You go to the top. And what do you say? The new song which is the new song, love bacon, llama love, bake, love Baker, la sharika back in the hamba. Well, nama Tanaka, la sharika. Once a year, all of you get together and you think, Oh man, if you're recording a song, you know, it's not a song. But it's, you know, you're reading something you're reciting collectively, millions of people are reading the same thing yet. And when you go to juvenile Rama, you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala. And this is all mountains.
The Villages of Qaeda where are they Makkah, right? And it's all surrounded by mountains. So this prophecy is very, very clear that this prophecy First of all, it's very general, okay. Law will come, Justice will be spread, he will find it worshippers, he will be a messenger of God. According to the software subsequent verses, he will triumph against his enemies. But then suddenly, verse 11, he sounds he has something to do with the villages of Qaeda Arabia, which is clearly Arabia. Who is this? Who is this? If it's not Maha masala lawless Allah? Who is this? Who do these prophecies fit?
How are they fulfilled?
So these are some of the points I have to share with you today. So first prophecy, we'll discuss both Isaiah 2912, where it is clearly stated in the book is given to the one who has not learned in a dissenting read, and he will say I have not learned, we know what happened there. Then we talked about three locations in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 33, verse two, and we explained these three locations are there, Sinai, sorry, and then Iran, of Iran, which is Arabia. And then we talked about the book of Isaiah chapter 42. And when people talk about the gospel of john, you know, para corralitos, or the Holy Spirit, which was foretold by Jesus, he saw this alarm and he said, that
another one will come after me and he will tell you about things I haven't told you and He will glorify Me, okay, these prophecies are very important, but I believe these three I have shared with you today are the most powerful, the most clear, and the most evident prophecies in the Bible on the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, because they give specific locations Arabia, Arabia, is there in all of them. Okay. And who came from Arabia? So, looking at the history of the Prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad, you know, he was definitely one of the most important figures in the history of humanity. Would you agree? Would you agree? Yes, yes. He was definitely one of the most, if not the
most, I mean, we were Muslims believe he was the most important person though. This is a this is a Muslim belief, no problem. Okay. Others don't have to agree with it. But was he one of the most important personalities?
Because, you know, one of the, one of the people who from the USC wrote a book titled, The most influential 100 figures, human human in human history, his name was Michael Hart. For America, he wrote this book, and number one was Mohammed Salatu. Salam, number one in his book, that he was the most influential person in human history. Right? Forget about what the media saying media is painting Islam as a barbaric, backward fade. Let the media bark at you no problem because media cannot change history. So long as history is preserved, so long as the history is alive, no one can change it. Okay. History is very, very clear what Islam did what Muslims did, what Islamic
civilization stood for 1000s of people, hundreds of 1000s of people lived in Muslims and flourished, lived happily for over 1000 years. In fact, Bernard Lewis, one of the Jewish historians, who wrote a book called The Jews of Islam, and in his book, he claims that Muslims protected the Jewish people for over 1000 years. If it was not for the Muslim protection, the Jewish people would have been extinct. They would have been destroyed if the Muslims did not protect them, because they were facing heavy persecution in Northern Europe, Western Europe, Ottoman Empire. Yeah, I mean, not only Ottomans, Muslim Jews took refuge in islanders in Spain, before the Ottomans. And when they found it
difficult to live there, they found refuge with the U beads. Okay. They came to the they came to Egypt. For example, when in the 12th century, a Mullah Dune, a group came from North Africa conquering Spain again, okay.
First of all, we had our Morabito, who came into Spain, okay in the in the 11th century, then came on more than they were
very extreme in the, you know what's happening in Iran. It was very similar to that situation. You know, they came in they both. So my monitor is Muslim in my moon was a Jewish scholar born in Cordova. Islamic Cordova. Yes, he was born there. And some Jews are forced into Islam by this group, although I don't, you know, falsely wrongly, okay? Because we know Islam cannot be forced against anyone. Okay. Where did you find refuge? Did he go to Northern Europe? No. He found refuge in Egypt and he was governing in Egypt at the time.
And he became a physician to the brother so counselor, Dean. Mousavi, mamoon. So Islamic justice was spread all over the world. You know, the, the Jews and the Christians. I mean, even if you look at the Ottoman Empire, for example, in 16th century, from the year 17, sorry, 1500 to 1570. You know, in Jerusalem, they were courts, Muslim courts, the Sharia court, you know, where the kadhi was there, right. And people will take the cases to the court. So what they did was they, you know, Ottomans did one thing that documented the cases very well. You know, the richest documentation we have in Muslim history is either from watermelons or from India, from the Mongols, unfortunately,
the previous, you know, they were either burnt in a library or they were they were destroyed because of wars or whatever happened. The Mongols, when they came, they destroyed a lot, that destroyed the entire library about that, you know, millions of books are burnt and destroyed and thrown into the river. And when the Catholics came, and they took the last stronghold of the Muslims called Grenada in, in Spain, they burnt 1 million books. And when Ferdinand and Isabella, you know, both the monarchs one, the ruler of Castilian, the other one was the ruler of Aragon, when they saw Alhambra palace, you know, Alhambra in ornata, organelle. They said, We cannot destroy this, this is too
beautiful for us to destroy. In fact, they said we will be buried, and the graves are there, they actually buried there. But they destroyed the Muslim box, the real legacy of Islam was destroyed systematically, unfortunately, in Spain. And Manuel, of course, did what they did on the other side, so a lot of these so these documents were preserved. So one of the Jewish scholars from Israel, his name is Amnon Korean, he started to study the world records for 70 years from 1500 to 1570. These records are called sigil. Court records, Sharia court, Islamic records of Islamic cases, people Muslim who brought cases to the court, and they were documented what happened and you know, and the
outcome, and the case was decided, and so and so in such a such, what used to happen. So he studied these corporate courts, and he found 1000 Jewish cases filed in the Muslim court,
even though they were Jewish courts in Jerusalem at a time, you know, according to the Islamic law, the Jews and Christians don't have to follow the law of Islam. Did you know that they have their own autonomy, they don't even have to dress like Muslims. They don't have to eat the Muslim food, they don't even have to follow Islamic law.
In when they come to the Muslim quarters. Of course, there is then there are some protocols, for example, Christians can find pigs, they can find pigs, they can produce wine within the domain of Islam, as long as they don't sell it to Muslims, as well. So you know, this misconception Islam is imposed on everyone. So lie, historically is a lie.
study the history of the Ottoman Empire. So they were Jewish courts in Jerusalem, but Jews were voluntarily coming to the Muslim courts seeking justice. And then he concludes, he's a Jewish scholar from Israel. 1994, he wrote a book titled A world from within.
And he said that, in the 16th century, the Jews were more, you know, they were more prosperous than the Muslims were in Jerusalem. And they had nothing to do nothing. They had no problems. They were living a very easy, prosperous life. And this is what we find throughout Islamic history where our Muslim is covered. So unfortunately, even the Muslims have been brainwashed by the media, not his Muslim start to think maybe our history was because we don't read. We don't study although our source of information comes from that screen. Either this. Yeah. This is not that fitna. Yeah, or the big screen the TV, we don't read. We don't look at the books. Once we start reading, then we
will start to wake up inshallah and see what Islam achieved throughout history and how great it was, you know, not because it was,
you know, severe or it was oppressive or tyrannical, no, to the contrary, it was a very, very liberating, very, very, you know,
tolerant faith, and it is to this day, nothing has changed. Thank you very much for listening. I know I've talked about a number of different issues. The topic was prophecy, prophecies about the Paloma masala
selam in the previous scriptures, I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions, please put them forward. And I'll do my best to answer any questions or Yes, there is a question here. Okay, let's see what it says. Salaam Alaikum
is not going to head for the talk, Please, could you remind us on what we as Muslims can take from the Bible and how we should regard the Bible? Please give us a quick summary and how the Bible was compiled soccerloco? while you've asked me five questions, and then you asked me to summarize them, quickly, and these are these five questions are a lecture each in themselves? I have done a complete course on this Muslim view on the Bible. If you go on YouTube, watch the videos
is about six hours course. Yeah, it's called the Muslim view of the Bible. To put it in a nutshell, I'll give you
the most live view on the Bible is in somebody who, according to the Muslims, Bible is neither completely altered, corrupted change, nor it is completely authentic. Is that clear? This is the view of shareholders lobbies will take me up not a lot. And I find this view to be very balanced, that the Bible is not entirely corrupted. And it is not entirely authentic. It definitely has interpolations. And even the Christians and the Jewish scholars will tell you that that it has been altered, it has been changed. No one doubts no serious scholar, no serious student of knowledge, who is aware of the evidence and the biblical studies will ever doubt this point. That Bible has been
altered, it has been changed a number of times, it has been changed textually it has been changed contextually and both ways. So there are, for example, passages in the Bible today, and that cannot be fine. That cannot be found in the ancient manuscripts. For example, if you go and look at the most oldest Bibles in the world, they are in the British Library in London, go to King's Cross. If you ever go to London Next, go to Kings Cross and there is British, the British Library they have the oldest Bibles there. One is called Codex Sinaiticus. The other one is called Codex alexandrinus. Okay, and even in them, there are certain passages we find in the Bible today. They're not to be
found there. Okay, they were added later on. I'll give you examples. For example, the entire chunk, the gospel of Mark chapter 16, verse nine to 20 was added later on. It doesn't exist in the earliest manuscripts. The Gospel of john chapter seven, verse 53, to chapter 811, this entire chunk, the story of the adulterous You know, there was an adulterous brought to Jesus. And they asked him to stone her to death because she thought she was an adult. And she said, Well, the one who hasn't committed sin should be the first one to stone her. And no one's told her. This story actually doesn't exist in the earliest manuscripts. It's a very famous story. It's called raw copy of
adultery. Okay? It's not there. And then we have another passage called
no Johnny comma, first original john, chapter five, verse seven. It's not there. The only verse that substantiates the doctrine of the Trinity. It was added later on in the fourth century. So it has been altered, even the Old Testament has been altered in a number of different places. So it's not entirely true, and it is not entirely corrupt. So how do we deal with the Bible? Our yardstick or our standard for the Bible is the Koran. Basically, whatever agrees with the Quran, we accept it. And whatever does not agree with the Quran, we just simply leave it as it is. We don't take it. Okay? Because we believe the Quran is the word of Allah. It is the purest document from the ancient
world, it hasn't been altered, it hasn't been changed, okay? And those who believe it to be divine, that's the yardstick. Basically the Quran is your criterion is all forgone under the name of the parameter for God, which is the criterion, your yardstick. Okay, I hope that answers the question.
And how was the Bible compiled? This is another topic in itself. It was compiled by different people in different places by for different reasons, for example, and Bible was not established, as I said earlier, for as late as the fourth century. The final list of the biblical canon when it comes to the New Testament is from the year 367. In a letter written by a man called Athanasius. And the the 27 books of the New Testament are put down by him in order Okay, as we find them today, in the New Testament, and he said, this is it, this is the end, add no more, subtract, no more. Okay, this is the fountain of salvation. That's what he said. Okay. So it was in the year three
67 See, almost 330 years after Jesus, when the New Testament was, eventually finally canonized. Prior to that they were all debating church fathers. Even the documents for gospels are anonymous documents, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and john, or figures who are anonymous, these documents were anonymous. There is only one testimony we have that attributes the names to these documents, and that person is poppiest of hierapolis. This is one man who in the early second century said, The Gospel of Matthew, in my view was written by Matthew, the Gospel of Luke was written by the physician of Paul Luke. So he attributed these names to these documents and then since then, they
have come to be known as the Gospels of Luke, Matthew, Mark and john. Okay. For the gospel of john, we have three candidates. We have three candidates. And who are they john, the son of Zebedee, john, the presbyter. JOHN
of Ephesus, john of Ephesus, three candidates, we don't know which one wrote the gospel of john, the highest authorities in the Christian world are to this day not sure who actually wrote the gospel of john.
So how can we know imagine what happens in a Hadees forget about the Quran, Quran is out of the question is well established, who knows what the water is not water lovely. It is transmitted word by word for the prophets also Hadees the prophetic tradition. If you are in doubt about one person in the chain, whether he is Abdullah bin Amaro love a lot of other Sahaba the doubt usually arise, you know, it comes about either Tommy or Tommy, okay, if you're not sure who that person is, what do you do with that police?
If the Robbie's module module is unknown?
What do you do?
When you have a module narrator and an unknown narrator, in the chain of any hobbies, that this is life, simple, scholars do not accept it. So
moto moto in some ways,
is a lie. There's a liar. There is a there is a narrator who is a liar. Okay, he's got that. And it is Casa philos. It is model we don't even accept it. Okay. But when there is a Ravi and a return in the chain of Hades, and he's unknown module, okay, none of the phenomenon of them have been loaded. It is simply rejected that happens, no matter how beautiful the text is. The text may be very nice, you know, very beautiful. It may be telling you, if you make one, you know, if you make what do you get 1 million reward for it. Now, you get this and you get that maybe. But if the generator is unknown, that it's rejected. If we apply that criteria, if we apply the standard of Hades to the
Gospels, gospels wouldn't even make it to the table. They wouldn't even make it to the table. Because we're not we're not we're not only not have the chains, we have Inca, ties, ties in compiled interruption. You know, for example, we have these that a man from the the the second century of Islam, nourished from the prophet SAW lots of them. For example, a man from the time of Imam Abu hanifa, from Allah, who died in 153. Yet, or among Malik, who died in 170 979, Mr. Malik died. So imagine if someone said Follow us on lies on the lower audio or something in the 180. Someone made that statement, that that the Prophet Mohammed salatu salam said this, people, you know, the
scholars of Islam would ask you, okay,
who according to who you are saying in the year 180, that he said this about a man who died in the year 11. Okay, so there's a difference of 170 years between you and him. You are claiming or you are attributing a statement to him? According to who, and if he's unable to give you the chain, because the chain is well established. For example, in Buhari, so he'll Bokeria Do we have copy of wakaya?
I'm sure there is.
Well, there is power.
Okay, I'm sure there is a Bukhari somewhere. I can see some volumes it no less curar.
In Bulgaria, we have chains from Bokhari to the Prophet civilize a member when Buhari says powerful lies all lies on him. He doesn't say it because he's saying it. He gives you the authority.
gives you the chain and there is no interruption in the chain no interruption. For example Bokhari has
chains and in these chains you have minimum three people and maximum seven people. Is that clear?
Some chains have seven people between Buhari and the profit. Okay. Some chains have three people between Bukhari and the Prophet depending on who he got this wrong. So the shortest chain for example, Bukhari derives from his teacher McKubre, Ibrahim. And Bukhari took these reports directly from his teacher McHugh. So Bukhari where he raised the Hadees he says, I took it from mokuba Ibrahim, and there is no doubt that alert komaki blow dry. macular Brian says, I took it from yazeed No, wait, is he to be obeyed? Was the teacher a mockumentary now you see them? No, we have eight. He took his Hadith from Salma Gabriella, who was the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and
then he took it from the Messenger of Allah Allah wa Salaam, so there is no interruption in the chain.
And all three sama Tahlequah, he lived about 70 to 80 years. Then await is either via Wait, he lives up to 90 also did
his student McHugh he died in his 90s so a man Buhari was a young man when he took a diesel monkey when he was in his 90s already. Some of my teachers they are in the 90s when I took a diesel now my change handler because I'm always looking for shorter, shorter chain. Yeah, going back to the poisoning, so it is possible to find them. So then we have
change in body with more men in them. For example, Abdullah Yusuf is a teacher of Macari Macari took the some of the love and use of Abdullah bin use them together these from Mr. Malik with us who died in the year 179. My mother took these from nothing. His teacher was nothing. Nothing took these from Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah bin Omar took these from the Messenger of Allah Salah Muslim, no interruption direct chain information coming directly one after another person will change to the later generations and then is documented in Bukhari. And after Bukhari. How many students did Buhari have?
over 90,000, people took, say, Al Bukhari from Mr. McCauley.
And they don't, they don't doubt even one report in the chain is uninterrupted with the Gospels, there is no chain,
there is no chain.
So someone in the second century claims that Jesus did this, somehow there is no change. There's no interruption of not one generation, three generations, almost a century we're in the stories come from. So these are the these are some of the big problems we face with the documents of the ancient world. Okay. Islamic literature is the only literature which is preserved in this unique way. And we simply cannot have any doubts about it. So it's a very big topic in itself, and we can talk about it.
Yes, yes. You can also comment on a dimension of the Prophet that is also known by name in the Song of Solomon.
I deliberately didn't mention that the brother talked about Song of Solomon chapter 15, where the word Mohammedan is mentioned. But I am not convinced about that argument. Other people argue the case powerfully. Or in my opinion, that is not the strongest argument. That's not the strongest passage in the Bible, where Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem is referred to as a prophet in the future. But the passages I have mentioned, I believe they are the strongest in my opinion, they are the strongest and the most powerful passages. And the most clear, you know, there is not I mean, you can't put any spin to them. How are you going to train them? How are you going to change the
location? Peridot Arabia is very clear how you're going to change that. The geography is so specific, you simply can't change it. You can't change it to Native America, or sorry, South America, you can't change it to Australia, because it's so clear guys are was in Arabia. And the villages of gaydar is where the Prophet was born. salatu salam was very clear. Anyone else? Yes, please. Three references. First reference I use was Isaiah 2912. Okay, the second was Deuteronomy chapter 33, verse two, Deuteronomy, Deuteronomy, the second book of the Bible, from the Old Testament, 33, two and the first, the third passage was Isaiah,
And there is another one you can note, which tells talks about the Battle of butter, in my opinion, is chapter 21, verse 13, the book of Isaiah, this is another one for one. Take that take that one down as well and read it in your own time. Chapter 21
language student because my English is not good,
that patient normal
one time while speaking with a priest, he asked me questions by I couldn't answer it when I was searching it to be able to answer next time, but I think you can answer this.
I said him
you he said me at Luke didn't see prophets, Jesus, but he you know, wrote a passage and another
is how can you trust these people who didn't see a prophet and wrote something, they said this is from God. And he asked me, but you know, Quran is Quran was written
after that of Prophet Muhammad, how can you trust these readings? Because
maybe they are,
they may change they may have had they they may change the look of it. May He may have changed it. Oh, yeah. Okay. The brother is asking that he was having a discussion with the Christian priest and he asked him questions that how can you trust these documents? If Luke has never met him? So he's writing modules? How can you? First of all, we don't even know who Luke is. Okay. This is only an attribution for the second century, some man from the second century called copies of our office. He said Luke wrote ago, we don't know who Luke is. Luke is otherwise completely unknown. It is only Papyrus who said Luke was his physician. That's it. Okay. But then Quran he asked you that, how can
you trust her it was written by his companions afterwards. Firstly, there is no comparison. If something was written by the companions of Jesus, and was transmitted through a chain without interruption, we would have no problem in accepting it. If it was authentically narrated from the companions of Jesus. We have nothing from his companions. That's the first argument okay. With the Quran, we have no doubt, and no serious scholar, Muslim or non Muslim Tao. So the Quran actually was collected by the companions of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And how do we know what the Quran is? We know the Quran, because of the Prophet right? Some of us who did the Quran come to from
him, from him to his companions, he taught his companions, right? So there were 1000s of his companions, he will read the Quran to them every single day, and they would memorize it, and some would write it. So this is wrong when he said that the Quran was not actually written in the life of the Prophet. The Quran in its entirety was written in the life of the police. Also, it wasn't collected in one place. That was the problem. Yes. Okay. Because why wasn't it collected? Like a book like this? Why didn't the Prophet make a book like this and give it to his companions?
Why? Because it was still coming down. Okay, when you put something down in a book, you can't just cross it and then add, you know, today we have computers, cut and paste here. Yeah, there was no computer at the time. So the focus of the salon would simply when the revelation would come down here, 30, scribes, 3030, scribes, and we know we know the names of them. We know the Maven gob was one of the scribes. I don't even know we thought it was gonna be so fun. Okay, we add
a little bit of it. Okay, so this is a list. There's a book actually written by Muhammad Mustafa, he is a scholar. He has written a book titled The history of the Quranic text from revelation to computation. Okay. He has given a list of the prophets scribes, scribes, for what, that's the question. scribes are what they were writing the Quran, for the purposes of so they are written on, on sometimes on leather, sometimes on stones, sometimes on bones, whatever material they could find, and they protected the preservative after the professionalism died in the year 11. What happened? Revelation?
No more Why?
It's not going to come down anymore. There is no profit after him. So our worker was advised by oma
to compile the Koran into one place, so that we all can easily conveniently approach it. So aboubaker the long run command and saved in Sabbath who is right now, they is a scribe of the prophet who has completely taken the Quran from the Prophet directly. Here. It is no interruption. There is direct link. They've been savage and Prophet Mohammed solothurn. Direct Link. They're both, you know.
They both learned and studied
read the Koran together. So zaven Tommy was chosen for the task. And he put down the Quran together in one volume and later on of man who is another direct Companion of the parser. So he standardized the text, the text journey, the reading of the Quran, the spellings of the words and how to read it properly. That's it, so
that then he didn't take a one verse, etc. to witnesses. Yes. We have reports that Abu Bakar commanded him. They've been savage specifically that even though you know the Quran by heart because they knew the Quran by heart, all of it, he knew, he said even though you know it by heart, but do not write it down until a companion of the Prophet comes with the written Quran with two witnesses, not one, two witnesses. This is how the Quran was preserved. whether anybody who memorize Quran during prophet mon Yes, yes, they've been a bit of a volume went away when cop Abdullah bin Massoud took 70 chapter 70 suitors of the Quran directly from the Prophet
Abdullah bin Massoud, okay, there are many companions and the names are there in that book. Okay, so get that book is called the history of the Quranic text from Revelation and compilation is the second second edition is out now next time I have a
job in Java, but also there are people who have
heard that they have the change as well. From the
Yes, yes, we are doing the origin of the grant of the year. Yes, yes. So we have changed the Quran as well. For example the Quran so if there is a party, kimono besides the Koran, you know, his chain because he learned from someone how to read right? And he learned from his teacher the chain goes back to the police officers not only really not only right and not only written form, we have the manuscripts in the old manuscripts written by from the time the companions but even the orator transmission goes back to the peninsula. Yeah, this is prasada
Can you please shed some light on
What is okay, we have we had seven roof basically
Buhari the Quran was revealed in seven different modes, okay, I use the word mode in English
mode actually means forms seven different forms. And what exactly these forms were, we don't know the companions knew. The Albert assumed they knew. Okay, so some scholars believe that these forms were different Arabic dialects because
you know what didn't speak one language. Okay, for example, English accent or English pronunciation of certain words changes from place to place, right? If you if you're in Birmingham, they speak very slightly different English. If you go to Bradford they call a boss a boss. Yeah. Yeah, you're also the accent changes yet you go to Scotland, I struggled to understand English you know the Scottish English. So, the other similarly you know borrow hanifa What are they
borrow what find yet all of these different tribes, they are different dialects. Okay. So our rules are revealed to allow certain flexibility for them to read the Quran different dialects, okay. So this when derived came with one dialect, the Qureshi dialect, the prophets, Allah said, My people will not be able to do it. Because the hours are very rigid with the language. And they were very tribe centric. They had they took a lot of pride in the tribal tradition. Yeah, so imagine the Christians went to
what happened to the people of five? When the Prophet preached to the people who were from Turkey. Morocco was a very big tribe. And when he said euro Qureshi, why did the Prophet come to us Empire? So yeah, four months okay. If you are a Qureshi
for example, or some tribe or some tribe from
Abuja, Abuja was from bundle masovia. Yes, what what what did he say to the price or something? Why did the Prophet come to Zoo Why do we have to follow some emotion? Why do we have to follow so, so they had this you know, so, the promises are new my people, the hubs will not accept one currency, because immediately what what does it say? What does it mean Qureshi, the superior the language is the word of Allah is coming in the language of the Cornish. So they are trying to
You know, they would have been difficult to process. Allah, Allah Allah. So debrided brought seven different modes, dialects for them to have certain flexibility, and then it was completely
naturalized or neutralized, rather neutralized by the founder of the lavon. Because now Islam has become dominant Muslims have learned doctrine they have imagined they have taught aid, you know that tribalistic mindset is already gone now, it's already 30 years after the particular saddam he said class now, we will bring it back to the Qureshi dialect and put it in the data. So these crabs 10 crabs or seven kilohertz, slight differences in them actually come from the roof.
So these, my view is an aroma have, you know, different views on this topic? Yeah. So these slides for example, Maliki and Maliki. Yeah, the difference wash, when the read is murky or muddy? And we when we do in houses molecule, there is no difference. Okay? The meaning molecule medic, there's not much difference, okay. So these slight variations are actually coming from the roof themselves. In my opinion, this is the real life. Okay.
Anyone else? Yes, please.
Thank you very much.
addition, I want to ask the question about Old Testament and New Testament, according to the New Testament,
Father, and son, there is a correlation between father and son. Can we find the same correlation in Old Testament? Father and son? Yes, Father, yes. And yes. Now, if you see later on, the issue of son was confused by Greek thought. Okay. As far as the Jewish people were concerned, when they refer to God as the Father, they considered him as the Heavenly Father of the Creator, okay, Father, figure run, father in the physical, the biological sense, Jews, no mention that God is the father in the biological sense. Rather, he is the father figure, He is the Creator, later on. And even in the New Testament, okay? When Jesus speaks to His disciples, He says to them, you are all sons of God, in
the, in the sense in the sense of the euro, because they are the creation, they are the creation of God, and God is the Creator. So he's the father in that sense, not in the physical sense, okay. But this point, or this concept was later on confused because of the Greek philosophy neoplatonism. What happened in the second and third century, a lot of these church fathers were neoplatonic philosophers. So they started to explain a Jewish tradition. In Greek language of Greek philosophical language, we in Islam had the same problem, by the way, when what does the law, you know, a group rationalists, they came about, and they started to explain Islam, according to the
Greek philosophy, and then many problems arose, right. And then the scholars, Allah dealt with those problems, you know, because they started to talk about things which were like, You're not even important, not even relevant Islamic tradition. Same thing happened. This is all a doctrine of the Trinity came in doctrine of the Trinity actually was justified by the Greek philosophy neoplatonic philosophy. It is not Jewish. Jews never worship for Trinity. Jews were strictly monotheistic. They were very, very monotheistic. And when they worship the Father, they didn't mean he's the father in the sense that human sense he is the father figure, the creator father, that's where it goes. So
afterwards, Islam forbade all these terms, you know, you can't, because anything that can cause confusion, you know, must be put aside what happened in the time of Joseph Yusuf Alayhi Salam it was allowed to prostrate for Tavi, you know, to bow to someone for respect, okay. And we have so many passages in the Old Testament in the New Testament, where people bowed and the even the word worship is used for this bowing of respect Okay, worship doesn't actually mean in the Old Testament or us or the new testament to worship like God you would like to worship God worship also means to respect to pay respect, okay, but then these confusions were for you know, forbidden by Islam so you cannot not
even bow to someone even for a step bowing is only for a lot for only for God Almighty, okay? previously was okay. But now of Islam came Islam abrogated these confusing practices or confusing terms. So the term father you cannot use it for God anymore because look, look at the confusion at cost throughout history for the Christians.
Anyone else? Yes, please.
I think would you say that isn't the reason the Christian
Barnabas because it makes all this clear
For the training team that won
the Gospel of Barnabas, as we know it today,
the Christians believe that it is a forgery. On the 16th century, the oldest manuscript of this gospel we have is on the 16th century 1500s. And it is in Italian, it is an Italian language, it's not even original. We don't know where the original is. So we don't know who wrote it, where it came from, although there are passages very, very,
you know, very powerful passages in it and very much in favor of Islam. Okay, as some people even call it like slamming gospel. So, some Christian scholars claim that this particular gospel was written by a Christian convert to Islam, a Christian who had converted to Islam and was well versed in Christianity, who, he's the one who penned his gospel, and attributed to due to Barnabas, and then claim that, you know, all these passages were in the original Gospel of Barnabas, we simply cannot reject these claims or accept them. We don't know who wrote the Gospel of Barnabas, we don't know whether it's actually original or not. So for that reason, it is usually kept out of the debate
because it's, the status of the gospel is very, you know, unsettled, is dubious, it's not completely certain where the gospel came from. So some people use it some people completely rejected, but we don't need the Gospel of Barnabas. That's the point we have so much in the Bible as it is that you know, like the passages I shared with you, and if we go on and on and on, there is so much more that corresponds to like Jesus, for example, Jesus was a Muslim in practice. How did Jesus pray?
How did Jesus pray, you know, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us that previous prophet spread like this, like when before on the, you know, when we fall on our face,
here, Jesus in the garden of get so many we are told the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 36, word 20, was 2016. When he goes to the God garden or gets so many falls on his face, how do you fall on your face? How do you fall in the face this your face, right, fell in his face when you pray to God? Abraham fell on his face and he prayed to God, Moses fell in this way. So who prays like a Muslim? Right, Jesus greeted his companions by saying Assalamualaikum
that's how he greeted his companions. Assalamu aleikum wa. Isn't, isn't the Gospels. So there is so much there. So gospel born of Barnabas his status is questioned, not so much by Muslims by by Christian Christian scholars. So that's why it cannot be used as a, as a document that is agreed upon.
Well, the Bible, the Christians cannot dispute because it's their document. Right. So that's why we,
you know, rely on but but there are other documents, amazingly, that have survived from the ancient world, Christian documents. One of those documents is called the dark age, which was read more by Christians and the gospels were the darky was a document is like,
it's like a book on prayers, you know, the book of glass, for example, how to pray, how to purify yourself, how to make wudu, ablution, things like this here, there is no mention of crucifixion, there is no mention of Jesus of divinity. It simply is simply a book on Christian devotion. That's why that's the reason why it was kept out of the Canon captured, this cannot be with the Word of God, because, you know, it doesn't give us what we really want. So they, you know, the way Bible was compiled, in particular the New Testament. How was it canonized because there were so many documents written in the second century as well.
And they were attributed to Jesus, why were they rejected? and Why were these particular ones accepted? Because there was a criteria used by church fathers to accept documents. And according to Christian scholars, such as Bruce Metzger, he stated in a book titled the canon of the New Testament, he states that the criteria was
the conformity to the established doctrine. So the church had an Akita view of Jesus, and he document that didn't support that we was rejected, regardless of his status, Who wrote it? Well, it doesn't matter if it doesn't support the doctrine is rejected. But in reality, it should be the other way around the aqeedah. The doctrine should be according to the book.
But the doctrine was formed. And according to that doctrine, books are collected. That's why the New Testament was canonized. And so many of the books were rejected and they have survived to this day, and those documents like the decay is one of them, that there is another one called the shepherd of hermas, which is another book of devotion with a lot of prayers and no mention of divinity of Jesus. No mention of crucifixion. Okay, then another one is opinion.
Barnabas not the gospel, not the gospel, epistles letters of Barnabas. Okay? And actually when you when you see the oldest manuscript in the British Library, Codex atlanticus, two documents are in the back. They are, they're still in that document. So even in the fourth century, someone considered them to be canonical. Someone actually included them in the Scripture. But then the main church rejected them, they were not never included.
There is a lot more we can talk about, I think,
yes, yes, I get the message. Your might, I might understand that it might be okay to go to the Bible. But actually, the prophet is also when he's talking about on the lawn with
paper, he got upset to be an official
I understand that my main view to go except if you have the knowledge, depending on I think it's a mistake when some scholars not so scholar students or scholars claim that it is not allowed to read the Bible and take any wisdom from a normal not with the right tool. You have to have the right tool here. You have to have the knowledge and you have to have the way Yeah, absolutely. I agree. He goes to the Bible. Yeah, but even that this is a context. Why was the publisher said I'm upset. He was upset because the way it came to him.
You understand? He was upset because the owner was so excited. Suddenly, you became excited. Yeah, this little law, you know, that it's no good. And the person what will happen to you, man, you know, so profits also never. I mean, give me a statement and don't read it. Why are you reading it? No, no, no, no more, probably says I'm gonna report that he even kissed. Do you know the Old Testament of the Jewish people? You know, the scripture of scriptures of the Jews even kissed the gizzard. And we have books written by shekel Islamic potamia. Our job was to heal him and
what did he use in that book? He's into his arguments of based on the Bible, and then his student in Okayama jovia when he wrote the book,
battle, yeah, the yoga is all based upon the Bible that Abraham Londolozi, you know, when he wrote his book,
middle one now, it's all based upon.
Yeah, no, I agree. I agree. But we when we say that it is haram forbidden, and we have to bring evidence. But I agree with you 100%, that people who read these texts are, are the ones who should be the ones who have the knowledge of Sharia, they understand their akiza correctly, they have access to the books of classical scholars, and then they go to these books and start to explain them and study them. No problem. No problem. Yes, I agree. It's not for everyone. If you don't know what you don't know a word of doctrine, and you don't know anything about the progressivism read the Bible to understand the progress doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense. I agree with you. 100%.
So people who study the Bible, and the previous scriptures or other scriptures are the ones or shouldn't be the ones who have solid grounding in Islamic knowledge and they understand the Islamic view and then they are there to understand the other view to explain it to the masses properly.
Chapter Seven verse 57.
verse 137. And there is another one where it is a small mud
dust. I don't know if his family was
You know, where?
Allah subhanaw taala says that he saw his alarm foretold the coming, man his name will be his new. Okay, so that reference is also there
No, I don't know the reference another verse.
Sorry, mistake. Number six. Number six, verse number six.
