you cant hide the Truth


And there is a party among them who twist their tongues while reciting the Book to make you think that it is part of the Book when in fact it is not. They say: 'It is from Allah', when in fact it is not from Allah. They falsely fix a lie upon Allah, and do so wittingly. ( Surah 3:78)

We read in the Quran Allah Swt telling us, how a party from amongst the people of the Book twist the words of Allah Swt with their tongues.  Distorting its meaning, and deceiving people. They would say “it is from Allah” when in reality is it not from Allah. Not only would they distort the texts by misinterpreting its meaning with their tongues, they would also write their own Book claiming it was from God.

Woe, then, to those who write out the Scriptures with their own hands and then, in order to make a trifling gain, claim: “This is from Allah.” Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they thus earn. (Surah2:79)

Here we read Allah Swt is informing us how these men would write scriptures with their own hand claiming it was from Allah Swt.  Again, Not only would they distort the texts by misinterpreting its meaning with their tongues (Surah 3:78), they would also write their own Book claiming it was from God.

in the Quran Allah Swt informs us of Prophets who were given revelations and scriptures.

Say: 'We believe in Allah and what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and to Issac and Jacob and his descendents, and the teachings which Allah gave to Moses and Jesus and to other Prophets. We make no distinction between any of them72 and to Him do we submit. (Surah 3:84)

(O Muhammad!) We have revealed to you as We revealed to Noah and the Prophets after him,2and We revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the offspring of Jacob, and Jesus and Job, and Jonah, and Aaron and Solomon, and We gave to David Psalms. (Surah 4:163)

Did you notice something from the above two verses? Nowhere is Mark, Matthew, Luke, John and Paul mentioned. The very gospels that Christians want to us believe in written by those 5 individuals are not mentioned in any of those two verses from the Quran. Notice in both verses Surah 3:84 and Surah 4:163, revelations were given to Jesus Pbuh not any of his disciples or later followers. So the questions arises from whom did  Mark, Matthew, Luke, John and Paul get their inspiration from? If Jesus Pbuh was preaching the Gospel (singular), here we have 5 individuals writing their version of Gospel, which becomes Gospels (plural). Christians claim those Gospels are from God i.e. they are the inspired word of God. which we can see Allah Swt informing us about such lies as found in surah 3:78

And there is a party among them who twist their tongues while reciting the Book to make you think that it is part of the Book when in fact it is not. They say: 'It is from Allah', when in fact it is not from Allah. They falsely fix a lie upon Allah, and do so wittingly. ( Surah 3:78)

SubhanAllah and All Praise is due to Allah, who with his Mercy has blessed us and made us Muslims Alhumdulillah. we have been warned of such deceptions, that Christians bring to us. They want us to accept books which are lies and carry no weight of truth..

Question

Did the creation take 6 days or 8 days?

9 “Say (O Muhammad): Do you verily disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two Days? And you set up rivals (in worship) with Him? That is the Lord of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
10 He placed therein (i.e. the earth) firm mountains from above it, and He blessed it, and measured therein its sustenance (for its dwellers) in four Days equal (i.e. all these four ‘days’ were equal in the length of time) for all those who ask (about its creation).
11 Then He rose over (Istawa) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: ‘Come both of you willingly or unwillingly.’ They both said: ‘We come willingly.’
12 Then He completed and finished from their creation (as) seven heavens in two Days and He made in each heaven its affair. And We adorned the nearest (lowest) heaven with lamps (stars) to be an adornment as well as to guard (from the devils by using them as missiles against the devils). Such is the Decree of Him, the All-Mighty, the All-Knower”
(Fussilat 41:9-12)

Here the questioner is suggesting with his or her own understanding, that an eight day creation took place, whereas in many other verses we are told that the heavens and the earth were created in six days (e.g. surah 11:7, Surah 7:54, Surah 50:38) Just to break it down for the readers, verse 9 says two days as highlighted in bold, and verse 10 says four days and finally verse 12 says two days. So adding those numbers together one would easily understand it to be eight days in total. Well that’s not case when it comes to these verses.

Not verse 9 states Allah Swt created the earth in two days, verse 10 continues by saying, therein Allah swt places firms mountains and its sustenance for its dwellers in four days equal. That is adding the two days for the creation of earth and two days for placing mountains and sustenance which makes four days not six. Notice in verse 10 highlighted in red says equal (four Days equal),this is a clarification that the two days in  verse 9 and two days in verse 10 would make it four days equal.

The Arabic word use for equal is sawāan سَوَآءً which fits in perfectly with the two days adding together equalling to four days. Then we have in verse 12 two days, thus we have six days in all. Another point I would like to make is, the days used in the verses would mean a long period of time
not literal 24 hours like some may think.  The Arabic word used is yawmayni   يَوۡمَيۡنِ which means a long period of time, take for example this statement from Allah Swt

 “They ask you to hasten the punishment.92 Allah shall most certainly not fail His promise; but a Day with your Lord is as a thousand years of your reckoning.(Surah 22:47)

Notice how a day in the sight of Allah swt is like a thousand years to humans.
There is no contradiction or confliction with the creation stages. Here is another example on a human level how to understand the days creation.

CAN ANYBODY INSTALL LIGHTING IN A HOUSE BEFORE ACTUALLY BUILDING IT? YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUILD THE ENTIRE HOUSE TO HAVE ELECTRICAL WIRES ROUND IT.

You don't have to built the entire house to have the electrical wires round it and fit a light bulb to use it. This doesn't mean you took longer to add this bulb. It only shows within the time of building the house lighting bulbs were added, whether it took 6 months to build the entire house the first two month of building the foundation was when the electrical wires were fitted, whence the job would of  finished that is the foundation and the electrical wiring, which would of both simultaneously been completed within the same time period in 2 months. 

So if one said it took 6 months to build this house 2 months for the foundation, 4 months to complete the entire house which includes the Walls, ceiling, Windows, doors vents, boilers. And 2 months to get the electrical lighting's done. This is not a contradiction.

NOTE THE HOUSE IS NOT BUILD RATHER ITS TAKING STAGES FOR THE PROCESS AND EACH PROCESS IS INDIVIDUALLY TIMED WITHIN THE SET PERIOD OF TIME!

What do Muslims scholars have to say about these verses in Surah Fussilat.

The mufassireen commented on this fact which deals with the mistaken notion. Al-Qurtubi said: 
in four days” – this is like someone saying, “I set out from Basra to Baghdad in ten days and to Kufa in fifteen days, i.e., a total time of fifteen days.” (al-Jaami’ li Ahkaam al-Qur’aan, vol. 15, p. 343). 
Al-Baghawi said: “in four days” means the creation of what is in the earth. The measuring of the sustenance was on Tuesday and Wednesday, which along with Sunday and Monday add up to four days. This is like saying “I married a woman yesterday and today I married two” – one of whom is the woman whom he married the day before. (Tafseer al-Baghawi, 7/165) 
Al-Zajjaaj said: “in four days” means two days added to the previous two days. (Al-Kashshaaf, vol. 3, p. 444 )


Conclusion the creation of the heavens and earth took six days (period), not eight days (period)

How do you fast?

Christians often say like you Muslims we also fast. Tell them that's good to know, may I ask what are the principles and requirement of your fasting, how is fasting performed?
For example :
--------------
when do you start to fast and when do you cease to fast?
How many days are you to fast and what actions are taken whilst you fast?
What prayers are performed when you fast and end fast?
who decides what year month or day your fast to start and end? What are the conditions and actions of your fast?
Where did Jesus instruct you the accuracy of fasting and its methods?
How do you know what precautions to take whilst fasting? What if you accidentally eat or drank does this nullify your fast?
Where are the instructions rules and regulations for fasting found in the gospels ?
How did Jesus fast and what did he recommend for you Christians since you call yourself his devout followers?
When did Jesus break his fast and what did he break his fast with?
How do you know your fasting is accepted as it follows the criteria of the fasting which Jesus himself did?
Can you show us from the gospels any of the above criteria of fasting or is it that your made it up yourself?
How did the early Christians fast do you have any documented records?
What types of food did Jesus and his followers eat after fasting?
What is the time like of fasting ?
Can a women fast when she's on her menses ?
What is permissible and impermissible whilst fasting?
Please enlighten us of your fasting procedures if you know yourself
--------------------
What's amazing is, that Jesus did not inform you in how to fast or what type of actions are to be sanctioned during fasting. But he did say something which Christians are very familiar with, and that is
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when the, the Spirit of truth, is come, he shall guide you into all the truth.... (John 16:12-13)
Notice the words used, Jesus has many things to tell them, but they cannot bear them now. However when the SPIRIT OF TRUTH ARRIVES HE WILL GUIDE THEM TO ALL TRUTH. This tell us Jesus did not bring All TRUTH
Rather it was Prophet Muhammed Pbuh who came with All Truth he taught us how to fast and what requirement are needed to fast. How fasting should be performed, in what way and for how long etc...

Is The Bible In Our Hands The Same As During The Time Of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)


Christians like James white boast that the bible we have now is exactly the same as during the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)... This is not true without a doubt, let's not even talk about the Protestant and Catholic bible, a big reformation took place where 7 books have been dropped as apocrypha by the Protestants which was in circulation for nearly 1100 years.. This however is known and agreed upon unanimously that the bible has many many different books and none can be trusted as authentic unless they have a strong chain or Narration which I'm afraid to say they don't have
--------------------


Let's take this to another level what Did the bible look like during the time of Islam this is a difficult question to answer mainly because the information about Christianity and the books it used as scriptures in Arabia during the advent of Islam are quite sketchy. We have the non-Islamic and Islamic sources that provide some information about the Bible, but nothing conclusive. But they both are sufficient to show that the Christian "scriptures" are not demonstrably the same today as in Muhammad's(Pbuh ) time.
This information is taken from Islamic awareness

Ibn Hisham's Al-Sirah Al-Nabawiyyah. He mentions some of the beliefs of the Christians who talked to the Prophet(P):




[Those who talked to Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, were Abu Haritha Ibn `Alqama, Al-`Aqib `Abdul-Masih and Al-Ayham al-Sa`id.] They were Christians according to the faith of the king with differences between them; they say: He is Allah, and say: He is Son of Allah, and say: He is the third of three [i.e., part of Trinity] and these are the claims of Christianity. [They use as evidence for their claim that He is Allah the argument that] he used to raise the dead, cure the sick, create from clay bird-like structure then breathe into it to make it a [living] bird. All this was by the leave of Allah, the Praiseworthy the Exalted {to appoint him as a sign for men} (Maryam:21). 
They also argue for saying that he is Son of Allah by saying he had no known father and spoke in infancy which is something never done by any human being. They use as evidence for their claim that He is the third of three [i.e., part of Trinity] the argument that Allah says: We did, We commanded, We created and We judged [i.e., by using the plural for Himself], and whereas if He was one, He would say: I did, I judged, I commanded and I created; but it is He, Jesus and Maryam. The Qur'an was revealed addressing all these arguments.
There are two things about Christianity during the time of the Prophet(P) that stand out. Firstly, the belief that Jesus(Pbuh) spoke in infancy and that he used to create from clay bird-like structures and breathe into them to make them living birds. Secondly, the trinitarian doctrine that God is composed of the Father, Jesus and Mary. Since the doctrinal issue does not concern our discussion, we will focus on the first point that deals with the nature of the scripture itself.
The miracles of Jesus(Pbuh) speaking in infancy and giving life to birds made out of clay are usually dismissed by the missionaries as "apocryphal" but these were perfectly acceptable to Christians in Arabia during the advent of Islam. The Online Catholic Encyclopedia attests the popularity of infancy narratives among the Syrian Nestorians. It is interesting to note that the Arabic version of infancy narratives were translated from a Syriac original.
This indirectly confirms Ibn Hisham's narrative in Al-Sirah Al-Nabawiyyah with regard to the belief of Christians during the advent of Islam that Jesus(Pbuh) spoke in his infancy and breathed into clay bird-like structures and turned them into living birds. However, this only provides us a snap-shot of the kind of "scripture" the Christians were using during the advent of Islam and can in no way provide a complete picture of what their entire "scripture" looked like.
Moreover, the disagreement of Jews and Christians among themselves about their own scriptures was well-known during the advent of Islam and that also gave an impetus for `Uthman to collect the Qur'an.
Hudhaifa bin al-Yaman came to `Uthman at the time when the people of Sham and the people of Iraq were Waging war to conquer Armenia and Azerbaijan. Hudhaifa was afraid of their (the people of Sham and Iraq) differences in the recitation of the Qur'an, so he said to `Uthman, "O Chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book (Qur'an) as Jews and the Christians did before."
The disagreement among the Christians concerning their scriptures can be shown by studying the various canons of their Bible throughout the centuries before and after the advent of Islam. The disagreement among them concerning their scriptures persist even today. With all the facts in front of us, we can conclusively say that the Christian scriptures are demonstrably not the same today as in Muhammad's(Pbuh) time.

The above is enough evidence to shatter any Christians apologist who claim the bible they have has always been the same!!

IAM or I WILL BE

"Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!
(John 8:58 Christian bible)
----------------------------------------
Probably the most unique verse Christians use to prove Jesus's divinity, the IAM statement. Unfortunately Christians are not aware, that the Hebrew bible doesn’t say IAM.
God said to Moses, "(Ehyeh asher ehyeh) I will be what I will be,"..
(Exodus 3:14 Hebrew Bible)
So now we have a serious problem. If the Hebrew bible doesn’t use the word IAM, then John 8:58 cannot be the same statement used by Jesus. If Christians want to prove the divinity of Jesus using the Hebrew Bible by cross referencing with Exodus 3:14, then they have to change the texts to make it say:
"Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born I will be what I will be! (John 8:58 Christian/Hebrew altered version)
Like they say, you can't have the cake and eat it lol

he is confused!


One moment Korede says, the word Shahada is not found in the Quran. The next moment he says the word Shahada is used in the Quran. At least Korede has admitted, that the word Shahada is found in the Quran.
Korede said Allah Swt took the Shahada, by quoting Surah 3:18. To be honest I'm very baffled with his post, I don't understand what Korede is trying getting at?.
Let's understand this verse through Quran commentary before we expose Korede for good.
---------------------
Islamic studies Tafheem :

Himself bears witness that there is no God but He;14 and likewise do the angels and the men possessed of knowledge15 bear witness in truth and justice that there is no God but He, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. 
14. The testimony in question is from God Himself, Who knows directly all the realities of the universe, Who observes every existing thing without obstruction. It is the testimony of the One from Whose sight nothing is hidden, and who can be a better first-hand witness than He? His testimony is that no one but He is possessed of the attributes of godhead; no one has the power to govern the universe, and no one has the right to claim the rights which belong exclusively to God.
15. After God, the most trustworthy testimony is that of the angels, for they carry out the administration of the universe. The testimony of the angels, based on their own observations, is that the Will of God alone reigns supreme in the universe, and they turn to Him alone in the governance of the heavens and the earth. Moreover, all creatures possessing knowledge of reality have testified, unanimously, that no one except the One True God reigns and rules over the universe.
Ibn kathir tells us :
Allah bears witness, and verily, Allah is sufficient as a Witness, and He is the Most Truthful and Just Witness there is; His statement is the absolute truth,
(But Allah bears witness to that which He has sent down (the Qur'an) unto you (O Muhammad )) ﴿4:166﴾.
Allah then mentioned the testimony of His angels and those who have knowledge after he mentioned His own testimony, and the angels, and those having knowledge (also bear witness to this)). This Ayah emphasizes the great virtue of those who have knowledge.

--------------------

As we can see from the above commentators, that the witness of Allah Swt is sufficient and He is the most high and Truthful. Testifying that there is only one God by God Almighty Himself shows how true this is. If Korede thinks by God testifying means he gave Shahada, then Korede has to explain this verse taken from the Arabic Bible.

7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God. (Psalm 50:7)

اسْمَعْ يَا شَعْبِي فَأَتَكَلَّمَ. يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ إِنِّي أَشْهَدُ عَلَيْكَ: «أَنَا اللهُ إِلَهُكَ.

Notice how the word Shahada أَشْهَدُ in Arabic is used. Shall we conclude Yahweh took shahada?. How about this :

Samuel said to them, "The LORD is witness against you, and also his anointed is witness this day, that you have not found anything in my hand." "He is witness," they said. (1 Samuel 12:5)

5 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «لِيَكُنِ الرَّبُّ وَمَلِكُهُ الْمُخْتَارُ شَاهِدَيْنِ فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ عَلَى بَرَاءَتِي الْكَامِلَةِ». فَقَالُوا: «يَشْهَدُ الرَّبُّ».

Can we conclude Yahweh and his anointed gave shahada شَاهِدَيْنِ ?

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. (Psalm 19:7)

7 شَرِيعَةُ الرَّبِّ كَامِلَةٌ تُنْعِشُ النَّفْسَ. شَهَادَةُ الرَّبِّ صَادِقَةٌ تَجْعَلُ الْجَاهِلَ حَكِيماً.

Again the above verse in Arabic read the Shahada of Yahweh is true. Do you see the problem Korede brings to himself.

Conclusion :according to the understanding of Korede, Yahweh of the Bible took his Shahada as found in the Arabic Bible

Question for my Christian friends


What if a 1st century manuscript was discovered in Palestine, which mentioned the name Muhammed (Pbuh) as a foretold Messenger, what would your reaction be.? One cannot dismiss this , since manuscripts of the gospels are still being discovered. So theoretically dismissing, the finding of a 1st century manuscript is absurd. note this is after the manuscript was authenticated through palaeography, as an official 1st century manuscript (document).

Would you :

(a) reject the 1st century manuscript as a forge, and stick to the 3rd and 4th century manuscripts instead.?

(b) question the authenticity of gospels you have within your hands, seeking for answers.?

(c ) denounce your belief in Christianity for deceiving you to believe it was the truth, and reject the entire bible.?


(d) accept Islam as the Truth.?
