  1. 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
  3. 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.

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.

    Jeremiah 23:36 "But you must not mention 'a message from the LORD' again, because each one's word becomes their own message. So you distort the words of the living God, the LORD Almighty, our God." so that you pervert וַהֲפַכְתֶּ֗ם (wa·hă·p̄aḵ·tem) Conjunctive waw | Verb - Qal - Conjunctive perfect - second person masculine plural Strong's Hebrew 2015: To turn about, over, to change, overturn, return, pervert Benson Commentary: For every man’s word shall be his burden — You shall be made severely to account for your loose and profane speeches, wherewith you deride and pervert the words and messages of God himself. 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.
  7. 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.

  8. 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
  9. حرم الإسلام الاعتداء بكل أشكاله و حصر القتال علي من يقاتل وذلك مصداق قول الله : ( وَقَاتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلا تَعْتَدُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ ) فإذ وقعت الحرب فالقتال محصور علي المحارب فقط ، وكل الآيات القتالية في القرآن الكريم محمولة علي الحربيين - الجيش بالمصطلح المعاصر - ، اما الذين لا يقاتلون - المدنيين بالمصطلح المعاصر - فيحرم قتلهم .. *قال الإمام إبن قدامة -أحد أكابر أئمة المذهب الحنبلي - : ( لا تقتل إمرأة ولا صبي ولا شيخ فأن ولا يقتل زمن ولا أعمي ولا راهب ولا عبد ولا فلاح ) [ المغني ﻹبن قدامة 13 / ص 177-180 ] وذاك لأنه لا يوجد ترابط بين الكفر و القتل في الإسلام ولو كان الكفر واحدة مبيحا للقتل للزم قتل هؤلاء لأنهم كفار ولكن حرم قتلهم فدل ذلك ان الكفر وحده لا يبيح القتل، ولكن المبيح للقتل هو الحرابة.. قال إبن تيمية : ( والكفار إنما يُقاتَلون بشرط الحِراب، كما ذهب إليه جمهور العلماء، وكما دلَّ عليه الكتاب والسنَّة ) [ كتاب النبؤات ص 570 ] *وقال إبن القيم : ( ولأن القتل إنما وجب في مقابلة الحراب لا في مقابلة الكفر ولذلك لا يقتل النساء ولا الصبيان ولا الزمني والعميان ولا الرهبان الذين لا يقاتلون، بل نقاتل من حاربنا ) [ أحكام اهل الذمه ص 110 ] ولا يقتصرِ النهي عن الاعتداء على بني البَشر فقط؛ وإنَّما تجاوز ذلك ليشملَ النهي عن الإتلاف، وقطع الشَّجر، وقتْل الحيوانات، وتخريب الممتلكات بغير مصلحة، أو ضرورة تقتضي الإقدامَ على ذلك، وهذا سُموٌّ أخلاقي لم تعرفْ له البشرية مثيلًا في تاريخها قديمًا وحديثًا. ويعلق المؤرخ الفرنسي غوستاف لوبون علي هذه النصوص و الأحداث التاريخية و يقول : "والحق أن تاريخ العالم لم يشهد فاتحين ارحم من العرب ولم يشهد ديناً أكثر تسامحا من دينيهم "...

  10. UK: Terrorist shout “All Muslims must die” and stab one! It comes after at least 52 people were killed in a horrific far-right terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday, by Australian-born Extremist. A stabbing in Surrey which saw a man rampage with a baseball bat and knife while allegedly shouting ‘all Muslims must die’ is being treated by police as a terror incident ‘inspired by the far-right’. Neighbours in Viola Avenue, Stanwell, near Heathrow Airport, said the 50-year-old suspect had also been screaming ‘white supremacists rule’ before knifing a 19-year-old man in a nearby Tesco car park on Saturday night. He also asked the teenager ‘Do you wanna die? Well you’re gonna die!’ ahead of the horrifying attack, according to witnesses. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and remains in hospital, while the suspect is in custody after being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and racially aggravated public order. Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the Surrey attack on Sunday evening and thanked the emergency services for their ‘handling of the terrorist incident’.
  11. Joram van Klaveren is the second ex-PVV politician to convert. A former member of Geert Wilders’ far-right Dutch party announced Monday that he has converted to Islam. Joram Van Klaveren said he made the switch from critic to convert while writing a book about Islam. “During that writing I came across more and more things that made my view on Islam falter,” he told Dutch radio. Van Klaveren was a member of parliament for the Freedom Party (PVV) from 2010 to 2014, but quit the party after Wilders’ asked supporters during a rally in 2014 if they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands, to which the crowd chanted “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!” After leaving the PVV, Van Klaveren set up his own party, For Netherlands, but failed to win a seat in the 2017 national election and quit politics. Van Klaveren was a harsh critic of Islam during his time as PVV politician, saying “Islam is a lie” and “The Quran is poison,” newspaper NRC reported. Asked in the newspaper interview if he feels guilty about these statements, Van Klaveren said he had been “simply wrong,” adding that it was “PVV policy: everything that was wrong had to be linked to Islam in one way or another.” Arnoud van Doorn, a former PVV official, was an earlier convert to Islam. Van Doorn congratulated Van Klaveren on his decision via Twitter, writing: “ never thought that the PVV would become a breeding ground for converts.” https://islamicnafahat.wordpress.com/2019/02/05/van-klaveren-dutch-former-anti-muslim-politician-converts-to-islam/
  12. My job is in conflict with my religion.

    Welcome to the forum Prophet Muhammad -sala Allahu alayahe wa salam- said: "إنَّ الْحَلَالَ بَيِّنٌ، وَإِنَّ الْحَرَامَ بَيِّنٌ، وَبَيْنَهُمَا أُمُورٌ مُشْتَبِهَاتٌ لَا يَعْلَمُهُنَّ كَثِيرٌ مِنْ النَّاسِ، فَمَنْ اتَّقَى الشُّبُهَاتِ فَقْد اسْتَبْرَأَ لِدِينِهِ وَعِرْضِهِ، وَمَنْ وَقَعَ فِي الشُّبُهَاتِ وَقَعَ فِي الْحَرَامِ، كَالرَّاعِي يَرْعَى حَوْلَ الْحِمَى يُوشِكُ أَنْ يَرْتَعَ فِيهِ، أَلَا وَإِنَّ لِكُلِّ مَلِكٍ حِمًى، أَلَا وَإِنَّ حِمَى اللَّهِ مَحَارِمُهُ، أَلَا وَإِنَّ فِي الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، وَإذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، أَلَا وَهِيَ الْقَلْبُ". “That which is lawful/halal is clear and that which is unlawful/haram is clear, and between the two of them are doubtful matters about which many people do not know. Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honor, but he who falls into doubtful matters [eventually] falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly Allah’s sanctuary is His prohibitions. Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh, which, if it be whole, all the body is whole, and which, if it is diseased, all of [the body] is diseased. Truly, it is the heart.” [Bukhari & Muslim] Do your best to avoid haram just like Sahaba when they heard that alcohol has been forbidden, so the roads of Al-Madinah were full of wine.
  13. God in Bible and Quraan

    Bible VS Quran: In Bible Satan Is The God Of The World !! In Quran Allah Is The Lord Of The Worlds !! In Bible Jesus Is The Cursed One !! In Quran Satan Is The Cursed One !! ◄ 2 Corinthians 4:4 ► New Living Translation 4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe.

  14. Why Do We Send Peace and Blessings Upon the Prophet? Over and over again, we send blessings on the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), but do we know the meaning of what we are saying or why we are even saying it? Understanding what it is that we repeat at every mention of Prophet Muhammad’s name will not only increase our love for him but increase our awareness of how great this man really was. God says: إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace. (Quran 33: 56) The Muslim scholar, Sheikh Al-Sa’di says: “And in this there is an indication of the Prophet’s completeness, high rank, elevated status with Allah and His creation, and his wide fame. Indeed, Allah the Exalted and His angels confer blessings upon him, meaning that Allah praises him before the angels, and in the exalted assembly of angels due to His love for him. And the angels also praise him, make dua [supplication] for him, and seek forgiveness for him in humbleness and humility.” Imagine the status of Prophet Muhammad: Pure, sinless angels praise him and make dua for him. Not only that – our creator (God) praises him before these pure creations Himself! Sheikh Sa’di continues: “Oh you who believe, ask Allah to send blessings upon him and ask Allah to grant him peace. Through this you will be following the example of Allah and the angels, rewarding him for some of the rights he has upon you, completing your faith, glorifying him, loving and honoring him, increasing your good deeds, and expiating your sins.” When Should We Send Blessings and Peace? There is only one time that the blessing upon the Prophet is mandatory, and that is in the last part of the prayer, the tashahhud (when one sits down after the last prostration). There are, however, many times that sending blessings upon the Prophet are highly recommended. These include: – After hearing his name mentioned – After hearing the call to prayer – While making dua – During the prayer offered when a person dies – During the Friday khutba (sermon) – When entering or leaving the masjid – All through the day of Friday – When teaching and conveying knowledge – At the time of the marriage contract – In times of hardship and stress Some of the Virtues of Sending Blessings Upon the Prophet: – Fulfilling the command of God, as in the verse mentioned above – Following the example of God and the angels – Receiving ten blessings from God The Prophet said: He who sends blessings on me once, Allah sends blessings on him ten times and removes from him ten sins and raises him by ten degrees. (Muslim) – Having the intercession of the Prophet on the Day of Judgment:The Prophet said: Whoever sends blessings on me ten times in the morning and ten times in the evening will have my intercession on the Day of Judgment. (Al-Albani) – Relief from worries and sins:Ubayy ibn Ka’b relates: “I said: “O Messenger of Allah, I send much blessings on you. What proportion of my prayer should I devote to (sending blessings on) you?” He said: “As much as you like.” I said: “A quarter?” He said: “As much as you like, and if you increased it would only be better for you.” I said: “Then a half?” He said: “As much as you like and if you increased then it would only be better for you.” I said: “Then two thirds?” He said: “As much as you like and if you increased it would only be better for you.” I said: “I’ll devote all of my prayers to sending blessings on you.” The Prophet said: In that case it will suffice you from your worries and your sins will be forgiven. (At-Tirmidhi) – It increases your love for the Prophet. O Allah! Send Your mercy on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your mercy on Abraham and on the family of Abraham. And send Your blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as You sent your Blessings on Abraham and on the family of Abraham. Verily You are the Most Praise-worthy, the Most Glorious.

  15. Proofs Of The Bible's Corruption

    The Gospel of Mark: Note: This gospel is the oldest and supposedly the most original one in the New Testament! "Although the book is anonymous, apart from the ancient heading "According to Mark" in manuscripts, it has traditionally been assigned to John Mark, in whose mother's house (at Jerusalem) Christians assembled. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1064)" "Although there is no direct internal evidence of authorship, it was the unanimous testimony of the early church that this Gospel was written by John Mark. (From the NIV Bible Commentary [1], page 1488)" We certainly do not know whether Mark was the author or not! The quote clearly states "no direct internal evidence of authorship". Also, the so-called unanimous testimony of the early church: - Does not prove that the author was Mark. - Nor does it prove that other people did not alter and modify the book, especially when the book was written at least 40-50 years after Christ. We don't even know if Mark even wrote the book. "Traditionally, the gospel is said to have been written shortly before A.D. 70 in Rome, at a time of impending persecution and when destruction loomed over Jerusalem. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1064)" "Serious doubts exists as to whether these verses belong to the Gospel of Mark. They are absent from important early manuscripts and display certain peculiarities of vocabulary, style and theological content that are unlike the rest of Mark. His Gospel probably ended at 16:8, or its original ending has been lost. (From the NIV Bible Foot Notes [1], page 1528)" "This verse, which reads, "But if you do not forgive, neither will your heavenly Father forgive your transgressions," is omitted in the best manuscripts. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1081)" "This passage, termed the Longer Ending to the Marcan gospel by comparison with a much briefer conclusion found in some less important manuscripts, has traditionally been accepted as a canonical part of the gospel and was defined as such by the Council of Trent. Early citations of it by the Fathers indicate that it was composed by the second century, although vocabulary and style indicate that it was written by someone other than Mark. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1088)" So, in reality, we don't really know whether Mark was the sole author of this Gospel or not, nor do we know when and where the "gospel" was even written. And since The New Testament wasn't even documented on paper until 150-300 years (depending on what Christian you talk to) after Jesus, then how are we to know for sure that the current "Gospel of Mark" wasn't written by some pro of Mark? (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark%2016:9-20;&version=31;) The above text reads: "The most reliable early manuscript and other ancient witnesses do not have Mark 16:9-20." Now my concern to this corruption and 'answer-the-problem-away' statement is that what are those so-called "reliable early manuscript(s)" and who are the "ancient witnesses"? I hope you see the real danger in making these assumptions when you are willing to DIE for the fact that such Gospel is the actual True Word of GOD Almighty! Further regarding this Gospel, we read the following commentary about Mark 16:9-20: "Serious doubts exists as to whether these verses belong to the Gospel of Mark. They are absent from important early manuscripts and display certain peculiarities of vocabulary, style and theological content that are unlike the rest of Mark. His Gospel probably ended at 16:8, or its original ending has been lost. (From the NIV Bible Foot Notes [1], page 1528)" This quote raises a very serious issue here. First of all, as we've seen above in the first quote, we have no evidence that proves that John Mark was the sole author of this so called "Gospel". Second of all, we see that this Gospel has some serious problems/suspicions in it. The issue of Mark 16:9-20 is a scary one, because many Christian cults today use poisonous snakes in their worship and end up dying. (see above) Removing Mark 16:9-20 is quite appreciated, because it prevents people from dying from snake bites. But however, the serious issue of man's corruption of the Bible remains. We can be absolutely certain now that the above quotes prove without a doubt that the Bible is doubtful. The quote "or its original ending has been lost" proves that what we call today "Gospels" were not written by their original authors such as Mark, John, Matthew, etc... It proves that the Gospel had been tampered with by man. Let alone considering it as the True Living Words of GOD Almighty. If John Mark wasn't the one who wrote Mark 16:9-20, then who did? And how can you prove the ownership of the other person? Let alone proving that it was GOD Almighty's Revelation. And as we saw in the first quote above, we don't even know that John Mark was indeed the one who wrote the so called "Gospel of Mark". To say the least in our case here, we now have enough evidence to discard the entire Gospel of Mark from the Bible, because you can't take bits and pieces of it and say some of it belongs to him and some of it doesn't! Let alone considering the entire corrupted Gospel as the True Living Word of GOD Almighty, which is a complete blasphemy.
