  3. 3 Sunnah Foods You Should Include In Your Diet Routine: A lot has been written about the health benefits of incorporating Sunnah foods in your diet. Sunnah foods are basically food items that the Prophet (PBUH) consumed and recommended for the rest of the Muslim community. Scientific research has shown that many food items that fall into the Sunnah food category have numerous health advantages. If you are looking to add Sunnah foods to your dietary plans, here are three items that you should begin with: 1) Black seed oil products: Prophet (PBUH) referred to black seed or kalonji as the ‘cure for every disease’. Black seed has been used as a medicinal remedy for a number of ailments historically. Now, research on the subject has unveiled the wonderful health benefits of black seed oil which is extracted from the fruit of Nigella Sativa. Using black seed oil supplements with your meals can make you healthier by lowering your cholesterol levels and improving your digestion. It is also packed with anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that help the body heal. 2) Honey: A jar of honey can improve your health substantially. Not only is honey delicious but it is also packed with natural healing properties. From skin issues such as acne to digestive problems, from ulcers to chronic cough, honey helps with them all. It is also a more healthy replacement for sugar and synthetic sweeteners. Use raw honey to witness quicker results! 3) Olive oil: Olive oil or ‘zaitoon oil’ is like a treasure trove of health benefits. It is said to lower cholesterol levels, obesity and the risk of heart failure. It is packed with fatty acids that are beneficial for both your heart and brain. Moreover, olive oil can be also used as a moisturiser for skin and hair.
  4. Proofs Of The Bible's Corruption

    2 Peter 3:16 ".. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction." rest of λοιπὰς (loipas) Strong's Greek 3062: Left, left behind, the remainder, the rest, the others. Masculine plural of a derivative of leipo; remaining ones. [the] Scriptures, γραφὰς (graphas) Strong's Greek 1124: (a) a writing, (b) a passage of scripture; plur: the scriptures. A document, i.e. Holy Writ. Pulpit Commentary By "the other Scriptures" St. Peter means the Old Testament, and also, perhaps, some of the earlier writings of the New, as the first three Gospels and the Epistle of St. James. Gill's exposition: as they do also the other Scriptures; the writings of Moses, and the prophets of the Old Testament, the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and the other epistles of the apostles of the New Testament Expositor's Greek testament: ὡς καὶ τὰς λοιπὰς γραφάς. (1) There has been much discussion among commentators as to the meaning of γραφάς. Spitta takes γραφάς in sense of “writings,” and concludes that these were by companions of the Apostle Paul; but this is a very unusual sense of γραφή unless the name of an author is given. Mayor and others interpret as the O.T. Scriptures; while some who are prepared to assign a late date in the second century to the epistle, think that both Old and New Testament Scriptures are meant. On every ground the hypothesis of γραφάς = O.T. Scriptures is to be preferred. (2) The difficulty in connexion with the meaning of γραφάς is largely occasioned by the phrase τὰς λοιπὰς γρ. Does this mean that the Epistles of St. Paul are regarded as Scripture? Attempts have been made (e.g., by Dr. Bigg) to cite classical and other parallels that would justify the sense for τὰς λοιπὰς, “the Scriptures as well”. In these, certain idiomatic uses of ἄλλος and other words are referred to, but no real parallel to this sense of λοιπός can be found, and the connexion implied in λοιπός is closer than ἄλλος. The result of the whole discussion is practically to compel us to take τὰς λοιπὰς γραφάς in the obvious sense “the rest of the Scriptures,” and we cannot escape the conclusion that the Epistles of Paul are classed with these. The intention of the author of 2 Peter seems to be to regard the Pauline Epistles, or those of them that he knew, as γραφαὶ because they were read in the churches along with the lessons from the O.T.

    Opening Egypt Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said: "You would soon conquer Egypt and that is a land which is known (as the land of al-qirat). So when you conquer it, treat its inhabitants well. For there lies upon you the responsibility because of blood-tie or relationship of marriage (with them). " "‏ إِنَّكُمْ سَتَفْتَحُونَ مِصْرَ وَهِيَ أَرْضٌ يُسَمَّى فِيهَا الْقِيرَاطُ فَإِذَا فَتَحْتُمُوهَا فَأَحْسِنُوا إِلَى أَهْلِهَا فَإِنَّ لَهُمْ ذِمَّةً وَرَحِمًا ‏" The blood-tie: Hagar, the Mother of Ismael, and Maryia, the mother of Ibrahem (The son of Prophet Muhammad),both were Egyptians. http://sunnah.com/muslim/44/323
  6. Proofs Of The Bible's Corruption

    Matthew 15:7-9 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:8 “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 9 They worship me in vain; Their teachings are merely human rules. Matthew Henry Commentary 15:1-9 Additions to God's laws reflect upon his wisdom, as if he had left out something which was needed, and which man could supply; in one way or other they always lead men to disobey God. How thankful ought we to be for the written word of God! Never let us think that the religion of the Bible can be improved by any human addition, either in doctrine or practice. Our blessed Lord spoke of their traditions as inventions of their own, and pointed out one instance in which this was very clear, that of their transgressing the fifth commandment.... The doom of hypocrites is put in a little compass; In vain do they worship me. It will neither please God, nor profit themselves; they trust in vanity, and vanity will be their recompence. Barnes' Notes on the Bible In vain do they worship me - That is, their attempts to worship are "vain," or are not real worship - they are mere "forms." Teaching for doctrines ... - The word "doctrines," here, means the requirements of religion - things to be believed and practiced in religion. God only has a right to declare what shall be done in his service; but they held their traditions to be superior to the written word of God, and taught them as doctrines binding the conscience. Isaiah 29:13 The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.

    Forms of governance the Muslim nation would experience Ḥudhayfa b. al-Yamān (rA) reported that the Prophet ﷺ said, “Prophethood will remain amongst you for as long as Allah wishes. Then Allah will remove it whenever He wishes to remove it, Then there will be a caliphate upon the prophetic methodology. It will last for as long as Allah wishes it to last, then Allah will remove it whenever He wishes to remove it. Then there will be an abiding dynasty, and it will remain for as long as Allah wishes it to remain. Then Allah will remove it whenever He wishes to remove it. Then there will be tyrannical (forceful) kingship, and it will remain for as long as Allah wishes it to remain. Then He will remove it whenever He wishes to remove it, and then there will be a caliphate upon the prophetic methodology.” تَكُونُ النُّبُوَّةُ فِيكُمْ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ ، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا عَاضًّا، فَيَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ يَكُونَ ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ الله ُأَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيّاً ، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ ، ُثمَّ سَكَتَ: Aḥmad (18406); deemed ḥasan by al-Arna’ūṭ, and “at least ḥasan” by al-Albāni in as-Silsila aṣ-Ṣaḥīḥa -مشكاة المصابيح

    Psalm 56:4-5 NIV 4 In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? 5 All day long they twist my words; all their schemes are for my ruin. New American Standard Bible All day long they distort my words; King James Bible Every day they wrest my words: יְעַצֵּ֑בוּ (yə·‘aṣ·ṣê·ḇū) Strong's Hebrew 6087: To carve, fabricate, fashion, to worry, pain, anger Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible Every day they wrest my words,.... Form, fashion, and shape them at their pleasure; construe them, and put what sense upon them they think fit. The word (u) is used of the formation of the human body, in Job 10:8; They put his words upon the rack, and made them speak what he never intended; as some men wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction, 2 Peter 3:16; and as the Jews wrested the words of Christ, John 2:19. Clarke's Commentary Every day they wrest my words - They have been spies on my conduct continually; they collected all my sayings, and wrested my words out of their proper sense and meaning, to make them, by inuendos, speak treason against Saul. They are full of evil purposes against me.

Or, “Every man shall have most reason to regard his own word as hurtful and prejudicial to him. For the words of God were delivered with a salutary tendency, to warn sinners of the danger of their situation, and to call them to repentance. Those, therefore, who made a right use of them would have no cause to complain. But those who despised and rejected them perverted that which should have been for their wealth into an occasion of falling.” — Blaney.

  19. Proofs Of The Bible's Corruption

    The bible confirms its own corruption ! Jeremiah 8:8 " 'How can you say, "We are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely" Clarke's Commentary on the Bible: “The deceitful pen of the scribes. They have written falsely, though they had the truth before them. It is too bold an assertion to say that “the Jews have never falsified the Sacred Oracles;” they have done it again and again. They have written falsities when they knew they were such.” Many of modern Christian scholars will agree with Dr. Clarke’s statement. It is a historical fact that the Old Testament has been corrupted in its earliest stage, and it was exhaustively proved more than 250 years ago by Dr. Benjamin Kennicott, a prominent Hebrew scholar who was able to trace the process of the Hebrew text transmission till the times of Ezra (ca. 450-420 B.C.). Here are some excerpts from his latin work Dissertatio Generalis which till today is of great importance for Biblical scholarship: Reference: J. C. Nott & G. R. Gliddon, Types of Mankind: Or Ethnological Researches, Based Upon the Ancient Monuments, Paintings, Sculptures, and Crania of Races, and Upon Their Natural, Geographical, Philological, and Biblical History.

  20. Rabbi Allen Maller I neither believe nor disbelieve in the Qur’an. If I believed in the Qur’an, I would be a member of the Muslim ummah (community). But I cannot disbelieve in the Qur’an because I believe that Muhammad was a prophet and I respect the Qur’an as a kindred revelation, first revealed to a kindred people, in a kindred language. Ignác/Ignaz (Yitzhaq Yehuda) Goldziher (June 22, 1850 – November 13, 1921), was a Hungarian scholar of Islam and is considered one of the three founders of modern Islamic studies in Europe. He was educated at the universities of Budapest, Berlin, Leipzig, and Leiden, and became a privatdozent in Budapest in 1872. In the next year, under the auspices of the Hungarian government, he began a journey through Syria, Palestine, and Egypt. In the personal journal he kept he wrote: In those weeks, I truly entered into the spirit of Islam to such an extent that ultimately I became inwardly convinced that I myself was a Muslim, and judiciously discovered that this was the only religion which, even in its doctrinal and official formulation, can satisfy philosophic minds. My ideal was to elevate Judaism to a similar rational level. His admiration for Islam did not prevent Goldziher from remaining a devout Jew all his life. Indeed, Goldziher was appointed the secretary of the Jewish community in Budapest. This bond to Judaism and the Jewish people was unusual for a man seeking an academic career in Europe in the late 19th century. This in part was why Goldziher saw Islam through the eyes of someone who refused to assimilate into the contemporary Christian European culture. He had little admiration for European Christianity. Goldziher was denied a teaching post at Budapest University until he was 44. As a Christian convert, he would easily have received a university appointment as a full professor but he always refused to convert. In Edward Said’s critical attacks on western academic scholars of Islam in his book Orientalism, Said himself reproved them for failing to pay sufficient attention to scholars like Goldziher. Of the five major German orientalists, Said remarked that four of them, despite their profound erudition, were hostile to Islam. Goldziher’s work was an exception in that he appreciated ‘Islam’s tolerance towards other religions’. Dr. Yitzhaq Yehuda Goldziher was a 19th-century example of the famous Jew Rabbi Mukhayriq, who was one of many Jews who supported the Prophet Muhammad when he first arrived in Medina. Rabbi Mukhayriq, a learned leader of the tribe of Tha’labah, was part of a tribe that was made up of Jews from the land of Israel who had settled in Medina several centuries earlier, which included a large number of local Arabs who had converted to Judaism over the ensuing generations. According to Ibn Ishaq, the first major biographer of Prophet Muhammad, Rabbi Mukhayriq had “announced to his congregation that he would fight to protect Prophet Muhammad from his many enemies among the pagan Arabs of Makkah; stating that if he died in the battle (as he did) he wanted his estate to go to Prophet Muhammed to be distributed as charity.” When the Prophet Muhammed, who was seriously injured in that battle, was informed about the death of Rabbi Mukhayriq, Muhammed said about the Rabbi: “مُخَيْرِيقُ سَابِقُ يَهُودَ, or Mukhayriq is the foremost among the Jews (Ibn Shabbah, Ta’reekh Al-Madinah 467)”. In another narration, the Prophet said: “مُخَيْرِيقٌ خَيْرُ يَهُودَ, or Mukhayriq was the best of the Jews (Ibn Sa’d, Tabaqat Al-Kubra 1535)”. Ibn Ishaq also wrote that Rabbi Mukhayriq “recognized the Apostle of Allah by his description, and by what he found in his scholarship. However, (since) he was accustomed to his own religion, this held him back (from converting to Islam)”. Christians did not accept Muhammad as a legitimate prophet because they believed Jesus was a part of a Holy Trinity and the Qur’an explicitly states: “The Messiah (Jesus) the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary, a soul from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say Three: desist! – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son (4:171)”. But why did the Jews of Medina not support the Prophet Muhammad, who was just as unitarian as Moses? Most of them may have been afraid that after the death of Prophet Muhammad, his ex-pagan polytheist followers would turn him into a son of God and worship him, just as the followers of Jesus had turned him into a Son of God; and not only worshipped him but persecuted the Jews who would not worship Jesus. Thank God that did not happen, but by the time Prophet Muhammad died, the three Jewish tribes in Medina had already been defeated in inter-tribal fighting and had banished from Medina. I first studied Islam when I was a student at UCLA almost 60 years ago, and then again while I was in Rabbinical school. Over the years I continued to read the Qur’an and other Islamic books. I read these books as the Prophet taught his followers to read when seeking knowledge, “not as a believer, and not as a disbeliever”. But what does that mean? The Qur’an, of course, is sacred scripture for Muslims. A disciple of Muhammad named Abu Huraira related: “The people of the Book used to read the Torah in Hebrew and then explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. Allah’s Apostle said (to the Muslims): ‘Do not believe the people of the Book, nor disbelieve them, but say, ‘We believe in Allah, and whatever is revealed to us, and whatever is revealed to you’ (Bukhari Vol. 9, Book 92, #460 and Vol. 9, Book 93, #632)”. Following Muhammad’s teaching, I too neither believe nor disbelieve in the Qur’an. If I believed in the Qur’an I would be a member of the Muslim ummah (community). But I cannot disbelieve in the Qur’an because I believe that Muhammad was a prophet and I respect the Qur’an as a kindred revelation, first revealed to a kindred people, in a kindred language. In fact, the people, the language, and the theology are closer to my own people, language, and theory than that of any other on earth. Thus, I feel that I am a Muslim Jew, i.e. a faithful Jew submitting to the will of God, because I am a Reform Rabbi. Reform Jews are also now the largest of the Jewish denominations in the United States (in the UK, Reform Judaism is called Liberal Judaism). As a Rabbi, I am faithful to the covenant that God made with Abraham, the first Jew to be a Muslim, and I submit to be bound by the covenant and commandments that God made with the people of Israel at Mount Sinai. As a Reform Rabbi, I also believe that Rabbis should modify Jewish traditions to prevent them from making religion too difficult to practice. This important teaching in the Qur’an (7:157) was taught by Prophet Muhammad twelve centuries before the rise of Reform Judaism in early 19th century Germany. As Abu Huraira related: “The Prophet said, ‘Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded (Bukhari book 2 #38)”. May the faithful believers of all religions commit themselves to this excellent teaching. Rabbi Maller is a graduate of UCLA and the Hebrew Union College. Rabbi Maller is Past President of the Southern California Association of Reform Rabbis and is now President of the National Jewish Hospitality Committee. https://themuslimvibe.com/faith-islam/a-short-history-on-jewish-admirers-of-islam
