00:00:01--> 00:00:05

For us, law, the sole Creator

00:00:06--> 00:00:13

of the Universe, and make a specific lesson beyond his last messenger, Muhammad, Allah,

00:00:14--> 00:00:18

and upon all messengers and prophets who preceded him,

00:00:19--> 00:00:37

I greet you all, with the greeting of all prophets in its most beautiful and most complete form, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, which means May the Peace, blessings and mercy of Allah be with you all.

00:00:39--> 00:00:40

And I'd like to begin

00:00:41--> 00:00:53

by thanking all the organizers, and the participants, for this kind invitation to share some of those precious moments with you.

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

For the Muslim,

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

all prophets are brothers.

00:01:01--> 00:01:11

And the essence of their mission is one of the same, because it comes from the same source from Allah, the creator of all,

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

for the Muslim also

00:01:17--> 00:01:22

becoming of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his mission

00:01:23--> 00:01:32

represents the climax of the blessings that Allah promised to Abraham and his president.

00:01:34--> 00:01:43

It is also the embodiment and combination of all the prophetic traditions and history.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

The theme is this presentation

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

is that there are numerous passages in the Bible,

00:01:55--> 00:02:04

which are quite consistent with what the Quran mentioned in several places, including the one that we have heard in recitation this evening.

00:02:05--> 00:02:16

That Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was foretold, both in the Torah and the Gospel for gender in the Bible, if we use that term.

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

In order to make the presentation, easy to follow,

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

we will limit it to eight major prophecies,

00:02:31--> 00:02:31

one

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

relating to the prophecy of the Prophet Abraham,

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

which is found mainly in the book of Genesis, the first book in the Bible.

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

Plus two additional

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

prophecies made by prophets, Moses,

00:02:52--> 00:02:57

in chapter 18, and chapter 33, of the book of Deuteronomy.

00:02:59--> 00:03:10

And then there are three prophecies in the prophetic book of Isaiah in chapters 1121 and 42.

00:03:11--> 00:03:26

And two prophecies in the New Testament, one appeared in the first chapter of the Gospel According to john, and the other one is found in chapters 1415 and 16.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

Beginning with the prophecy in Genesis, Abraham.

00:03:35--> 00:03:49

In Genesis chapter 12, verses two and three, we are told that law or God, capital G, promised to bless all the nations of the earth through the crushing of Abraham.

00:03:50--> 00:03:59

At that time, Abraham was childless, he didn't have any children, since his wife at the time Sarah was buried.

00:04:02--> 00:04:18

In chapter 16 of Genesis, we are told that Abraham married a second wife, who happened to be a handmade up Sarah, her name is hater, just to have

00:04:21--> 00:04:21

because

00:04:23--> 00:04:29

the jealousy between Hagar and Sarah

00:04:30--> 00:04:35

and the mistreatment of Hagar we are told that Tigger ran away.

00:04:38--> 00:04:45

But then we are told that inherent agony, the engine of the Lord appeared before her,

00:04:47--> 00:04:49

told her that she is pregnant

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

that she is pregnant

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

and that she will have a child who

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

His name will be Fishman.

00:05:04--> 00:05:12

She was told that God's Rama will multiply that child and bless him.

00:05:13--> 00:05:16

And he ordered her to go back to her household.

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

She did.

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

After a while,

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

she gave birth to this nine. Then,

00:05:27--> 00:05:32

after the birth of his nine, and before the birth of Isaac,

00:05:33--> 00:05:38

we read in Genesis, chapter 17, especially in verse four,

00:05:39--> 00:05:51

repetition, reiteration, again. The promise made to bless the children. At that time, the only child he had was that significant.

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

In the 21st chapter of Genesis,

00:05:59--> 00:06:07

we are told that his first wife, the parent, one, Sara, gave birth to his second son,

00:06:09--> 00:06:15

we are told that chapter that God promised to bless

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

Isaac and to have the covenant with him and he sees

00:06:22--> 00:06:28

but at the same time, and in the very same chapter, in verses 13 and 18,

00:06:29--> 00:06:41

we are told that God also when bless Fishman, multiply him as well and make him a great nation.

00:06:44--> 00:06:48

According to the 21st chapter of Genesis in verse 21.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

We are told that

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

Ishmael and Hagar

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

were taken by Abraham,

00:06:58--> 00:07:05

and that they went in the wilderness of Tara, wilderness of Corona

00:07:08--> 00:07:17

according to some of the ancient geographers like Gucci and Burberry, his famous work, Martin would be done.

00:07:18--> 00:07:33

It is quite clear that Parana or Quranic Arabic is a reference to agents, and in particular, to Mecca, in which Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was born.

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

That curses prophecy alone is sufficient.

00:07:41--> 00:07:52

For it provides the clear link between the three great Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

00:07:54--> 00:08:13

For from the descendants of Isaac, came on Israelite prophets, Jacob, Joseph, down to Moses, David and so on, down to Jesus peace be upon the home, who is the last prophet in the branch of Isaac.

00:08:15--> 00:08:23

In the meantime, there is no dispute that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him behind that Prophet, coupled with Islam, and the word

00:08:25--> 00:08:42

was born from the descendants of Vishnu. So here is the prophecy in the promise fulfilled in both branches of the Abrahamic, feminine energy, multiplied one great nation, but in fact, two great nations in succession.

00:08:44--> 00:08:49

Let us move now to the prophecies made by Prophet Moses.

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

And taking the first one.

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

We are told in the book of Deuteronomy,

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

especially in chapter 18, more specifically, verse 18.

00:09:03--> 00:09:09

How Moses is be upon him was echoing the same promise that was made to Abraham,

00:09:10--> 00:09:24

speaking to the Israelites, in His presence, he tells them that God will send you from brother in or raise your brother, a prophet, like unto me,

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

that's one like the second

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

that God will put

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

his word in the mouth of that product.

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

So whatever you would speak

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

30 he said that anyone who does not listen, or hearken to the call of that Prophet, that Allah was required of him.

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

City cons. First, bitter brother.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

It is true

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

That independent second usage of the word brother, it is often used to refer to people of the same tribe, or of the same family. That's quite correct.

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

But it is also true that the term brother and

00:10:20--> 00:10:29

that's my second point has been used also in the Bible to refer to the close kins of the descendants of Isaac.

00:10:31--> 00:10:40

We find evidence for that in the book of Genesis, chapter 16, verse 12, and chapter 25, verse 18.

00:10:41--> 00:10:56

And since Moses was already addressing this highlights in his presence, and he says God would send you from among your brethren, may seem to be an obvious reference to the closest branch to the Israelites,

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

the Israelites.

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

The third point

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

is that, while it could be argued,

00:11:06--> 00:11:33

that Prophet Jesus peace be upon him, is similar to Moses, in the sense that they both are Israelites, both came to help or save their people, you could make analogies like that, which is not only applicable, between Moses, Jesus, but also between Moses and any other Israelite. There have been several Israelite prophets who could possibly fall to that description.

00:11:34--> 00:11:58

But if you look carefully about the crucial similarities and differences between Moses and Harmon in one hand, and Jesus and Muhammad peace be upon them all, on the other hand, we find that it's quite interesting. But for the sake of time, I just touch a few of them. In my humble little booklet, which is called the feminine the Bible, there is a table of beard that provide 10 areas of comparison,

00:11:59--> 00:12:23

which includes natural birth, for the first two. And by that I mean Moses in combat Center, which is different in the case of Jesus, natural death, or any of the mission of the first two, but not in the case of Jesus. But very important differences here, which shows the close similarity is that Prophet Moses,

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

feast or famine, brought a complete code of law.

00:12:29--> 00:12:59

Whereas Jesus Himself said, I came not to destroy the law for profits, I came to confirm. And any objective examination of his teaching shows that he focused largely on the spiritual element that was that you need by the Israelites who already had a complete code of law already since the time of Moses, but only perfect person who came after Moses came with a complete code of law, and that's a significant area.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

He is ready.

00:13:05--> 00:13:05

Second,

00:13:07--> 00:13:18

Robert Moses was a prophet, and a statesman, and a head of a community, a person who encountered his enemies in hard pursuits,

00:13:19--> 00:13:23

and was victorious, so was the case of profit.

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

But that comparison doesn't apply to Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him.

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

You could go on and on. But I just add one more point,

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

that Prophet Moses and Mohammed, both

00:13:40--> 00:13:51

were seen by their followers, as simply human beings, not divine beings. That is not the case with the followers of Prophet Jesus, the spirit

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

that be less than two concrete. The only logical

00:14:01--> 00:14:13

product who is really like unto Moses, in many respects, is not Jesus as Paul misinterpreted in his writings, but rather, it was perfectly fine.

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

In the same book, we move to the third practicing

00:14:21--> 00:14:25

in the same book of Deuteronomy, now in chapter 33, in the very beginning,

00:14:26--> 00:14:34

we have something very interesting and very curious. For it also seem to connect Moses, Jesus and Mohammed.

00:14:36--> 00:14:41

And basically Moses is making that statement shortly before his death.

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

He says God came from Sinai and

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

rose up unto them from the hills of sear

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

and shine forth from Mount Paran.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

He added also

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

If I go went out of his right hand, and he added also later, with him came 10 1000s of sins.

00:15:12--> 00:15:19

Before we try to analyze this and see whether it has any relevance to the connection between the Abrahamic religions,

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

I'd like to draw your attention to the Christianity in the Bible,

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

which to me looks like stages of the sun rising,

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

the sun rises,

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

then gets somehow to halftime,

00:15:40--> 00:15:56

but then shine sports in the new tower. And it could be no more Sunday afternoon or it could be declined. So that means some sort of progression in the extent or degree of lions. And guys.

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

Now, when it says God came from China,

00:16:02--> 00:16:08

of course, Muslims and Jews, and Christians, for that matter believe that God is not physical.

00:16:09--> 00:16:22

incarnation is a different, but the notion that is even accepted by all three divisions that God is not physical is not limited. So obviously, the reference here is coming to the command of God coming up the revelation of God,

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

not physical.

00:16:25--> 00:16:34

God coming from Sinai, then for His revelation, it is an obvious reference to Moses receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai.

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

That's King Rose,

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

Rose under the moonlight, more

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

motivation from the hills, CA.

00:16:50--> 00:16:58

Those of you who are familiar with the geography of Palestine, know that there is a village which is called Sagat.

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

Village.

00:17:01--> 00:17:08

And actually, the name is not new, you go back to the time of the acuity

00:17:10--> 00:17:19

in which he says it also is a village in Palestine. That could be a possible reference to the kind of refugees.

00:17:22--> 00:17:28

But then what is para for? You might recall that we said earlier

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

that he

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

stated quite clearly that foreign

00:17:37--> 00:17:37

around

00:17:38--> 00:17:45

is actually just more specifically map that has been the tradition, how many was given.

00:17:47--> 00:18:08

And it is exceedingly interesting also, to notice or remind ourselves that in Genesis chapter 21, verse 21, it specifically, clearly states that Hagar and Krishna dwells in the witness of para magic.

00:18:10--> 00:18:20

This is something which is indisputable. In fact, we all know that there are relics already existing macker

00:18:21--> 00:18:30

confirming the tradition that has been buried among the Earth's traditional historical traditions, that they are descendants of Ishmael.

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

We know that the cow was built by Abraham with the help of his son, Fishman, we know that his belief that Hagar is very next to the car, that's quite

00:18:45--> 00:19:05

a lot inside, you have to go outside of that. We know that the will of Samson was the one that gush with water under the feet of baby fish, not quite crying out of thirst when he was lifting his mother, by his father, Abraham.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

So in that sense,

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

the pieces seem to fit together.

00:19:16--> 00:19:23

But then there are two additional thing in that prophecy that seemed to confirm this and show that this is not a forced interpretation.

00:19:24--> 00:19:29

Because it says his right hand went to the fire low for her.

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

There was no problems who sent you the complete code, no.

00:19:39--> 00:19:45

But something very fascinating when it speaks about the 1000s of scenes.

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

And if we remember

00:19:51--> 00:19:51

the number

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

of Muslims who went with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam victoriously back to my

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Okay, what was the number?

00:20:05--> 00:20:14

And the historians who gave this information? We're not aware of any of this proxy. It was simply the coordinate, what happened at the time?

00:20:17--> 00:20:21

We can conclude then that on both of these prophecies of Moses,

00:20:22--> 00:20:33

the second and the third, they seem to be a great difficulty pointing to anyone, indeed, other than perfect.

00:20:35--> 00:20:42

And for your information, if there's any question about any of the descendants of Krishna,

00:20:43--> 00:20:54

there are mentions of that already. And we seem to be more recognition in more recent Christian works, including the restriction of the

00:20:55--> 00:21:13

International Standard Bible encyclopedia, Smith, Bible Dictionary of all differences, that allude also to the fact that it is commonly understood that a hammer is a descendant of perfect.

00:21:16--> 00:21:26

Now we move to prophecies number 456, in a very important prophetic book, the book of Isaiah,

00:21:28--> 00:21:32

Isaiah, as you know, came after Moses and before Jesus.

00:21:34--> 00:21:39

We begin first by the reference made in Isaiah chapter 11.

00:21:40--> 00:21:43

What again, for focus planets give you the gist of the prophecy.

00:21:45--> 00:21:48

Basically, it speaks about an important personality

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

that will come from the standard,

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

Jessie J. SSP.

00:21:57--> 00:22:02

That personality is described with wisdom, understanding,

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

the spirit of righteousness, and

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

it is also described as a personality of strength and power, not just spite power also.

00:22:16--> 00:22:20

And that is, that person will be a judge,

00:22:21--> 00:22:27

ruling in justice and fighting against the wicked.

00:22:30--> 00:22:37

It also indicates that the utterances to be revealed to that person

00:22:38--> 00:22:48

will have a great influence and attraction on humanity. using the term he would smite the earth with his time, smite

00:22:49--> 00:22:58

to be so eloquent, so impressive, that it really strikes those who listen to those patterns, or revelations.

00:23:01--> 00:23:01

Now,

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

looking at the Israelite history,

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

it is, to me impossible

00:23:13--> 00:23:22

to find the person who combines not someone who combines all of those description except for one that

00:23:25--> 00:23:28

yet some people might say, why not this? Why not that.

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

And the solution to that problem

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

has been found already

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

in chaise encyclopedia.

00:23:40--> 00:23:48

And it's centered around the question as to what is that Jessie that Isaiah did speak about?

00:23:49--> 00:24:02

Some biblical scholars used to uphold that just see, according to the Bible is the name of the father of date. That is, there is fire.

00:24:04--> 00:24:26

There are two responses to it. First of all, if you're speaking about a great personality to come, and they say is the descendant of you must mention someone who is well known in history. For example, in the New Testament, when some of the people used to call on Jesus peace be upon him. What did they call him, some of this, but the

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

son of David, David is a much well known personality in the Bible, much more than his father, his father is very influential and influential in the history of the Bible. So it would be rather illogical to speak about the great personality saved from the the descendants of the father of David was way less known, rather than, say, the descendants of David as consistently seen when the New Testament writers try to apply many of the prophecies to Jesus they keep saying he's the son

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

They don't say he is the son of Jesse.

00:25:03--> 00:25:20

But then, like I mentioned, one of the interesting thing that I have to check it myself, even now University outside of my home, in University of Toronto, which has a huge library, and I didn't check it with my own eyes, I did not feel comfortable until I did it with my own eyes.

00:25:22--> 00:25:22

This is

00:25:24--> 00:25:28

why it gives the Hebrew names because the Old Testament as you know,

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

has been written in Hebrew.

00:25:33--> 00:25:36

Also, the other languages, the Hebrews and put the language

00:25:37--> 00:25:54

and embed in cecropia. If you check under names, the name Jessie J. S, you will be surprised to find that they say just C is a contraction of Krishna.

00:25:55--> 00:25:59

But let me add a little more like to see where the name came from.

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

You know the word

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

schema in Hebrew?

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

God

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

is not like Arabic. Yes.

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

Yes, not

00:26:14--> 00:26:39

a lot. Yes. Now, that a lot when, which means that when Hagar was crying in the wilderness because of the mistreatment of Sarah, she was played to Allah. So that engine him to comfort her and tell her Yes, ma'am. Allah, He, here's your complaint. And then the good news of the birth is it actually is related to have suffered.

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

Now, so if you take the blue pill,

00:26:46--> 00:26:54

and you make it every day, Yes, ma'am. Yes. And yes, she is the same like Jessie, like when you say, Jehovah, and

00:26:56--> 00:27:05

this is how the name actually came to be. And this is not a Muslim source. It is an encyclopedia biblical based on the original Hebrew term. Yes.

00:27:06--> 00:27:18

So if there's any doubt as to whether this description could apply to someone else, who is that someone else who have all those description plus, being a descendant, of which married

00:27:19--> 00:27:25

to my husband? Absolutely none, but one perfectly.

00:27:28--> 00:27:33

We move now to the fifth cross, which is the second one in the book of Isaiah.

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

In chapter 21,

00:27:37--> 00:27:43

that chapter begins with some curious statements. It says the utterances,

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

utterances or

00:27:46--> 00:27:50

translations of the Bible, concerning Arabia,

00:27:51--> 00:27:55

that the one utterances concerning Arabia,

00:27:56--> 00:28:06

keep that in mind and move on to verses 13 through 17. Can you find something most amazing,

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

but in order to

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

understand the background of it,

00:28:12--> 00:28:17

I just make a quick note on one important aspect of the history of

00:28:18--> 00:28:22

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam started his teaching in Mecca.

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

For 13,

00:28:27--> 00:28:30

that was the time of persecution of Muslims.

00:28:31--> 00:28:42

Finally, the command came to the Prophet peace be upon him and some of the many Muslims to migrate to Medina. Medina was a little

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

at that time, it was known as Yes, which is the same as Medina that you hear about.

00:28:52--> 00:28:55

Also, that historically speaking,

00:28:57--> 00:29:00

when the doctor said to yesterday,

00:29:01--> 00:29:07

he and the Muslim were persecuted, were received with great enthusiasm

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

that the residents of yesterday,

00:29:11--> 00:29:53

called Medina after is commonly shared with the brethren, everything they have is well known in history. But something very crucial also happened. What happened in the second year of that migration, a defining moment in the history of Islam, not any of the other veterans as a defining moment. And according to all historians, Muslim students alike, it was very crucial for the future. And that is the Battle of battle, where Muslims were outnumbered more than three to one, and much more or much less equipped than the way

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

in which to speak about divine intervention angels helping the believers in a very

00:30:00--> 00:30:00

Tell me,

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

what was the number

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

10.

00:30:05--> 00:30:14

And the historians who get this information, we're not aware of any of this policy. It was simply to coordinate what happened at the time.

00:30:17--> 00:30:33

We can conclude then that both of these prophecies of Moses, the second and the third, they seem to be a great difficulty for pointing to anyone, indeed, other than perfect.

00:30:36--> 00:30:42

And for your information, if there's any question about any of the descendants of Fishman,

00:30:43--> 00:31:14

there are mentions of that already, and you seem to be more recognition in more recent Christian works, including the restriction of the Bible, International Standard Bible encyclopedia, Smith, Bible Dictionary of all differences, that allude also to the fact that it is commonly understood that a hammer is a descendant. Perfect.

00:31:16--> 00:31:26

Now we move to prophecies number four, five and six, in a very important prophetic book, the book of Isaiah.

00:31:28--> 00:31:32

Isaiah, as you know, came after Moses and before Jesus.

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

We begin first by the reference made in Isaiah chapter 11.

00:31:40--> 00:31:44

Where again, for shortness of time, give you the gist of the prophecy.

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

Basically, it speaks about an important personality

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

that we've come from Western

00:31:52--> 00:31:55

Jesse, J is

00:31:57--> 00:32:03

that personality is described with wisdom, understanding,

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

the spirit of righteousness, and

00:32:09--> 00:32:15

it is also described as a personality of strength and power, not just fighting power, also.

00:32:17--> 00:32:20

And that that person will be a judge,

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

ruling in justice, and fighting against the workplace.

00:32:30--> 00:32:37

It also indicates that the utterances to be revealed to that person

00:32:38--> 00:32:58

will have a great influence and attraction on humanity. using the term he would smite the earth with his time, smite the rest of the planet, to be so eloquent, so impressive, that it really strikes those who listen to those patterns, or revelations.

00:33:01--> 00:33:02

Now,

00:33:04--> 00:33:08

looking at the Israelite history,

00:33:10--> 00:33:12

it is, to me impossible

00:33:14--> 00:33:24

to find the person who combines not someone who combines all of those description, except for one that's kind of summarizing.

00:33:25--> 00:33:29

Yet some people might say, why not this, why not that.

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

And the solution to that problem

00:33:33--> 00:33:35

has been found already.

00:33:36--> 00:33:38

In she's in second encyclopaedia.

00:33:40--> 00:33:48

And it's centered around the question as to what is that Jessie that Isaiah, speak about?

00:33:49--> 00:34:00

Some biblical scholars used to uphold that just see, according to the Bible is the name of the father of David

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

Davis.

00:34:04--> 00:34:50

There are two responses to that. First of all, if you're speaking about a great personality to come in and say he is the descendant of you must mention someone who's well known in history. For example, in the New Testament, when some of the people used to call on Jesus peace be upon him. What did they call him? thing about him some of this? What did they call the Bible? Some David. David is a much well known personality in the Bible, much more than his father, his father is very influential and influential in the history of the Bible. So it would be rather illogical to speak about a great president he saved from the the descendants of the father of David was way less known,

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

rather than the descendants of David as consistently seen when the New Testament writers try to apply many of the prophecies of Jesus. They keep saying these

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

The sound they don't say he's the son of just.

00:35:04--> 00:35:20

But then, like I mentioned, one of the interesting thing that I have to check it myself, even now University outside of my home in University of Toronto, which has a huge library, and I didn't check it with my own eyes, I did not feel comfortable and delighted with my own hands.

00:35:22--> 00:35:23

This is

00:35:24--> 00:35:29

why it gives the Hebrew names because the Old Testament as you know,

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

has been written in Hebrew.

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

Also, the other languages the Hebrews and put the language

00:35:37--> 00:35:41

and embed encyclopedia. If you check under

00:35:42--> 00:35:54

the name Jessie, j. s, you will be surprised to find that they say just C is a contraction of Fishman

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

but let me add a little more like to see where the name came from.

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

You know, the word

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

schema in Hebrew.

00:36:07--> 00:36:07

God

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

is not like Arabic. Yes, ma'am. Yes, not

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

a lot. Yes. Now, that a lot.

00:36:17--> 00:36:35

Which means that when Hagar was crying in the wilderness because of the mistreatment of Sarah, she was sprayed Allah. So the agent came to comfort her and tell her Yes, ma'am. Allah, He is your complaint, and then give her the good news.

00:36:36--> 00:36:38

The birth is live.

00:36:41--> 00:36:44

Now, so if you take that, yes, ma'am.

00:36:46--> 00:36:54

And in wicked every day, Yes, ma'am. Yes. And yes, she is the same, like just like when you say Jehovah, and

00:36:56--> 00:37:04

this is how the name actually came to be. And this is not a Muslim source. It is an encyclopedia replica based on the original Hebrew.

00:37:05--> 00:37:18

Yes. So if there's any doubt as to whether this description could apply to someone else, who is that someone else who have all those description plus, being a descendant of

00:37:21--> 00:37:25

absolutely none, but one perfectly.

00:37:28--> 00:37:33

We move now to the fifth cross, which is the second one in the book of Iceland.

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

In chapter 21,

00:37:37--> 00:37:43

that chapter begins with some curious statements. It says the utterances,

00:37:44--> 00:37:45

utterances or

00:37:47--> 00:37:50

translations of the Bible, concerning Arabia,

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

that they've been utterances concerning Arabia.

00:37:56--> 00:38:06

Keep that in mind. and move on to verses 13 through 17. Can you find something most amazing,

00:38:08--> 00:38:08

but in order to

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

understand the background of it,

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

I just make a quick note on one important aspect of the history of

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam started his teaching in Mecca.

00:38:25--> 00:38:26

For 13,

00:38:28--> 00:38:30

that was the time of persecution of Muslims.

00:38:31--> 00:38:48

Finally, the command came to the Prophet peace be upon him and some of the medical students to migrate to Medina. Medina was a letter maybe, at that time, it was known as yesterday, which is the same as Medina that you hear about.

00:38:52--> 00:38:55

Also, that historically speaking,

00:38:57--> 00:39:00

when the doctor said to yesterday,

00:39:01--> 00:39:07

he and the Muslim were persecuted, were received with great enthusiasm

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

that the residents of yesterday

00:39:12--> 00:39:18

called Medina after he shared with the brethren everything they had known in history.

00:39:19--> 00:39:26

But something very crucial also happened. What happened in the second year of that migration,

00:39:27--> 00:39:37

a defining moment in the history of Islam, not any other veterans as a defining moment. And according to all historians, you must remember,

00:39:39--> 00:39:59

it was very crucial for the future standard. And that is the Battle of battle, where Muslims were outnumber more than three to one, and much more or much less equipped than the way in which to speak about divine intervention and angels helping the believers

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

You sound, different language and you saw Arabic

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

symbolized

00:40:08--> 00:40:23

by the exam, from hundreds of 1000s of minutes every day, every year. For centuries, we shall continue, continue to live judgment. The grace of God will be heard from the mountain

00:40:24--> 00:40:29

from the top of the mountain, what happens every year, and mountains and the

00:40:31--> 00:40:38

amount of data that they can actually collect in a fake prism? I love it. Good news to everyone year,

00:40:39--> 00:40:45

putting all the pieces together. I don't know, how else could have been.

00:40:46--> 00:40:50

Moving on to the New Testament, the last two processes.

00:40:51--> 00:40:55

The first one was made by

00:40:57--> 00:41:04

john the baptist, and actually it was known to the Jewish priests and violence.

00:41:08--> 00:41:14

In chapter one, in verses 19 through 26. In the Gospel, according to john,

00:41:15--> 00:41:20

we have a description of what happened when john the baptist came to preach. Yeah.

00:41:23--> 00:41:25

And it says that the scholars, the

00:41:26--> 00:41:30

Jewish scholars came to him and asked him three questions.

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

Are you Elijah?

00:41:35--> 00:41:35

He says no.

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

To Are you Christ?

00:41:39--> 00:41:44

He said, No. Then they asked about the third person, are you that?

00:41:46--> 00:41:52

And he said, No. Then they said, if you're not Elijah, for Christ, for that problem, why

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

are you trying to baptize people?

00:41:58--> 00:42:01

Now let's look at these three personalities.

00:42:02--> 00:42:06

First of all, when they say are you like, for us?

00:42:08--> 00:42:20

There was already a belief among Jewish scarves, that there is a profit to come like Elijah, Elijah has come again. Some of them interpret that to mean

00:42:21--> 00:42:33

that whose spirit would come again to life rather than coming in some sort of another prophet in the power or money in Asia. But why did john the baptist say he is not?

00:42:34--> 00:42:35

Elijah? Second,

00:42:39--> 00:42:54

let me turn to the Bible itself, to the statement attributed to the Prophet Jesus peace be upon him himself. In the Gospel, according to Matthew, chapter 11, verse 14, when Jesus clearly said that Elijah was not

00:42:57--> 00:43:02

the prophet in the power of Elijah is not means but

00:43:05--> 00:43:08

but why the gentleman that is denied? Maybe he didn't realize,

00:43:09--> 00:43:12

a prophet has sent a lot sent him like,

00:43:13--> 00:43:14

but he said,

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

no, that means that is expected the agenda,

00:43:21--> 00:43:28

but mistaken it second, second person class, when Muslim Jews and Christians

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

but then there is a third person

00:43:33--> 00:43:45

when they said you're not available, you're not quite in, you're not that probe. It is amazing to find in the life of some biblical scholars, Christian scholars, that they say that that Prophet meant Jesus.

00:43:47--> 00:43:54

But Jesus is the same as Christ. It's almost like asking, Are you say no, are you

00:43:56--> 00:43:57

say no, when asked, but

00:43:59--> 00:44:00

that's redundant.

00:44:01--> 00:44:02

Because I

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

must be a third person.

00:44:06--> 00:44:08

So there must be a different person

00:44:10--> 00:44:10

mentioned

00:44:12--> 00:44:23

except that Prophet that Moses spoke about him, a prophet, lightning to him, from the president of the extravagance, from the descendants of Ishmael.

00:44:25--> 00:44:29

Now we come to the last price,

00:44:30--> 00:44:35

which is found numerous verses in the Gospel equivalent to john chapter 14 through 16.

00:44:36--> 00:44:48

The background behind it is that very shortly before the end of his earthly mission, property, Jesus peace be upon him, was trying to encourage this for according to the Bible,

00:44:50--> 00:44:51

telling them

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

that I have to go

00:44:55--> 00:44:55

I have to go

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

because if I don't go the

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Take that word as it is explained the product, the industrial use of

00:45:06--> 00:45:08

the product leaves will not.

00:45:09--> 00:45:09

That's one side.

00:45:11--> 00:45:12

The second time,

00:45:13--> 00:45:25

they said that, when that perfectly comes, He will teach you things because he said, there are many things I want to tell you now, but you can burn you can't understand. But

00:45:26--> 00:45:31

he will explain to you. So there's additional knowledge to be revealed to that.

00:45:35--> 00:45:43

I said that product leads, does not speak on his phone. But what he hears from God shall he say,

00:45:45--> 00:45:46

to remember that

00:45:49--> 00:45:54

they said that correctly, when glorify me, He will speak positive

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

five.

00:45:58--> 00:45:59

He says that

00:46:01--> 00:46:14

correctly, it will tell you of things to come. That means you make prophecies about the future, which will turn out to be true as an evidence that indeed is receiving revelation from Allah.

00:46:15--> 00:46:16

few other descriptions.

00:46:17--> 00:46:25

But even if you take this, and start looking at the alternate interpretation of the productions,

00:46:26--> 00:46:28

Christian scholars generally

00:46:29--> 00:46:29

have

00:46:31--> 00:46:44

interpreted correctly, it is to be the common of the Holy Spirit, when it descended upon the disciples on one of the famous istigh celebration on the day of Pentecost,

00:46:46--> 00:46:49

which was about 40 days after the ascension of Jesus to heaven.

00:46:51--> 00:47:09

That says, when that spirit came into them, it gives them courage and determination. So they stood in the face of persecution. And it also enabled them to speak different languages, miraculously, to the point that even

00:47:10--> 00:47:13

when writers of the of the New Testament,

00:47:14--> 00:47:18

trying to defend innocent, they look almost like being drunk,

00:47:19--> 00:47:29

because they speak languages, and we cannot communicate with one another, or miraculous way, this has been interpretation of the characters.

00:47:30--> 00:47:33

But now, let us go to an object.

00:47:35--> 00:47:46

According to the Christian doctrine, of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is the third person in the one try you got it.

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

See, third person,

00:47:50--> 00:47:58

say, manifesting himself in the form of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit is part of that.

00:48:00--> 00:48:06

According to the ancient church documents, expressing the creed,

00:48:08--> 00:48:11

it says, the father is God in his own right.

00:48:12--> 00:48:21

The sun is God in his own right. The Holy Spirit is God of his own right, but these are not three Gods they are when

00:48:22--> 00:48:23

the Father,

00:48:24--> 00:48:32

the Son is eternal, the Holy Spirit is eternal. But these are not three determinants of quantity.

00:48:33--> 00:48:46

Now, we're leaving aside the discussion of the 20 button, simply referring to that, to indicate that according to the doctrine of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is God.

00:48:47--> 00:48:53

Now, when Prophet Jesus peace be upon him, say that that

00:48:55--> 00:49:02

cannot speak on his own, but only what he hears from God, that could not apply to a divine.

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

If the Holy Spirit is God, he does not need

00:49:06--> 00:49:09

to speak from anyone else he's got in his own right.

00:49:11--> 00:49:21

But the person who speak only what has been put into his mouth as we finally determined, or what he hears from the Lord, can only be someone cannot say anything.

00:49:22--> 00:49:29

Except without authority of philosophy is to be a creature of law, not equal to law,

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

and human being.

00:49:32--> 00:49:33

Second,

00:49:34--> 00:49:35

Jesus also said

00:49:36--> 00:49:39

that the world knows him not.

00:49:40--> 00:49:51

Yet, when we examine the New Testament, we find that the concept idea of what his spirit was known long before Jesus made that prophecy.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

In fact, at the time of baptizing of Jesus by john the baptist, it is said that the heavens

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

And

00:50:02--> 00:50:04

descended upon Jesus like a da.

00:50:05--> 00:50:07

So this might even occur.

00:50:09--> 00:50:23

Furthermore, when Jesus peace be upon, sent his emissaries for missionaries to preach in Palestine, he said to them, receive me the Holy Spirit.

00:50:24--> 00:50:32

So to say that, that is the Holy Spirit contradict that notion, because the Holy Spirit was already known

00:50:33--> 00:50:34

for them.

00:50:36--> 00:50:45

He said that, there are many things I want to tell you, what you can do is additional knowledge that will be given to additional revelation.

00:50:46--> 00:51:29

I'm not familiar with any historical record, that specifically say, what happened in the day of Pentecost, what additional revelation or information given to the disciples. In fact, history tells us, that after the day of Pentecost, and for many centuries, until now, there is severe dispute even about the divinity of Jesus and the nature of the relationship between the Son and the Holy Spirit and the father. That's when you have major differences even within the same set, if indeed, there was a new limitation, that would remove those disputes. It would have not continued for 2000 years after that they would have been across, but only by the coming of Prophet Muhammad, some alarms and

00:51:30--> 00:51:50

all those who are guided to the truth of Islam. From all sects, and all backgrounds, found unity in the truth in all of them, differences and disputes, were automatically dissolved by restoring the true position of Jesus as a great prophets and beloved messenger of Allah.

00:51:52--> 00:51:56

Now, you look at other signs mentioned earlier.

00:51:58--> 00:52:01

And it says that he will show you things to come

00:52:02--> 00:52:08

means making promises. And again, anyone who's familiar with the seal of the preference,

00:52:09--> 00:52:13

and what he said, in the prophecies, you may not one

00:52:14--> 00:52:23

was proven to be false. And some of those prophecies were very unlikely at the time when they were made. And some took place centuries after the

00:52:24--> 00:52:33

equity at the time of Muslims were persecuted. And as one of those habits and even one of the one of the hypocrites,

00:52:34--> 00:52:37

when Muslims were surrounded, he said, This man

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

is promising

00:52:40--> 00:52:50

the Muslims to have victory and to conquer and dissension. And one of us cannot go safely without house even in combat and security. So it was very unlikely

00:52:51--> 00:52:52

that

00:52:53--> 00:52:54

it was

00:52:55--> 00:53:03

Byzantine, it was Constantinople. And it was many centuries, even after the process in the hands of

00:53:07--> 00:53:19

who else came after Jesus peace be upon him with this 100% accuracy, not sound for almost 100% absolute accuracy of prophecies made.

00:53:22--> 00:53:27

Now the thing that Jesus mentioned, but that is that we will glorify Him,

00:53:29--> 00:53:40

and who came after Jesus, who glorify Him, and praise him from too terrible from the standpoint of faith, terrible accusations,

00:53:41--> 00:53:46

one accusation that was made by the Israelites, that he was an illegitimate son.

00:53:49--> 00:53:53

And the parent defended him and the purity of his mother may.

00:53:56--> 00:54:03

But the other one, from the standpoint of faith is nothing but the lesson because among even Israelites,

00:54:05--> 00:54:23

as well as in Islam, to have any partners with God, is blasphemy, that the person says that you say his partner, God will be the first to condemn. So in fact, it's also his own Jesus, from cleaning quality with his creation message.

00:54:26--> 00:54:27

Now,

00:54:28--> 00:54:29

I know

00:54:30--> 00:54:32

there are other things that could be

00:54:34--> 00:54:59

there are some objections also that can be raised and aware of that, and in fact, if there was enough time, to go through them and respond to them, but maybe just to revive interest, stop at this point in conclusion, and leave the rest of the discussion to conclude that now we have looked at eight

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

Both in the Old and New Testament, we have seen one Genesis pertaining to Abraham is the sentence, it could be not the interpretation that is reasonable and kosher.

00:55:11--> 00:55:39

We have seen two major ones in Deuteronomy 18 and 33. There could be no other cogent interpretation. Outside of this. We have seen three practices in Isaiah, especially most impressive chapter 21, that gives prophecy of specific events, people to places in Arabia, exactly as it manifested itself in the migration, and the better, the better. And we have seen to also in the New Testament,

00:55:41--> 00:55:43

even Prophet Jesus said,

00:55:44--> 00:55:47

to me, my company conclusion, which I'm not pushing,

00:55:49--> 00:55:53

that I researched a topic for too long. And I've read all kinds of objections. And

00:55:54--> 00:55:55

I have not,

00:55:56--> 00:55:59

quite frankly, I never saw

00:56:00--> 00:56:03

any good argument, except

00:56:05--> 00:56:10

that this applies to any one of one person, especially if you put it all together,

00:56:13--> 00:56:14

who was sent as mercy

00:56:16--> 00:56:17

to the whole world,

00:56:23--> 00:56:40

but as mercy to the whole of mankind, a message for all, a decision that has to be made by each and every person, and their own decision must be respected. For each one of us sitting here tonight, someday,

00:56:41--> 00:56:43

we'll be standing before is created.

00:56:45--> 00:56:56

No excuses can be offered. A lot of I say, my people used to do this. My nation used to believe that my parents used to do this. A lot has given us spirituality,

00:56:57--> 00:57:05

and said that he breathed into every human being something of his spirit in the spiritual element.

00:57:06--> 00:57:09

And if one uses that spirit uncorrupted,

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

it will guide him to the truth.

00:57:13--> 00:57:19

But Allah gave us a control of the abuse of the structural nature and fields that could

00:57:22--> 00:57:23

give us intellect.

00:57:24--> 00:57:44

intellect is not the opposite of faith in Islam. It is a tool to strengthen faith. It's a tool to work hand in hand with the spirituality to look at the evidence presented to us. And as such, individual responsibility is well established. And he had all the answers

00:57:47--> 00:57:49

now must help us

00:57:50--> 00:57:51

make the right decision.

00:57:52--> 00:57:56

the right choice for our prosperity in this life

00:57:58--> 00:57:59

and making joining us

00:58:00--> 00:58:05

in janetta in the Garden of Eden, in China in his

00:58:07--> 00:58:09

presence, cinema
