📖Isiah 29:12 KJV
And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Read with the name of your Lord who created (every thing),Read, and your Lord is the most gracious,who imparted knowledge by means of the pen.He taught man what he did not know.In fact, man crosses the limits,because he deems himself to be free of need.Surely to your Lord is the return.
And thus We have revealed to you an Spirit/inspiration of Our command [i.e., the Quran]. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.
Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you ( Twelve tribes of Israel ) and given to a people who will produce its fruit.
Twelve tribes of Ishmael.
📖2 Chronicles 6:32-33
As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when they come and pray toward this temple, then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name.
📖2 Chronicles 6:42
LORD God, do not reject your anointed one Masih-Christ. Remember the great love promised to David your servant.
And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.
And Mentioned when Jesus, son of Mary, said, ‘Children of Israel, I am sent to you by God, confirming the Torah that came before me and bringing good news of a messenger to follow me whose name will be Ahmad.’ Yet when he came to them with clear signs, they said, ‘This is obviously sorcery.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you -John.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Lord, he shall testify of me.
But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Lord will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
📖Genesis 16:11-12 KJV
And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew Face to face.
I will raise them up a Prophet 👉From among their brethren,👈 Like unto thee, referring to Moses And I will put My words in his mouth; And he shall speak unto them All that I shall command him.
In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.
Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was, He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah. They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “👉Are you the Prophet👈?” He answered, “No.
Prophet Ismail (peace be upon him) and Prophet Isaac (peace be upon him) are the sons of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him.), thus they are brothers. And according to the terminology of the Bible, the children of Ismail (the Arabs) and the children of Isaac (the Israelites) are thus brethren to each other.
Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed,Taught to him by one intense in strengt i.e. Gabriel Quran 2:97 The Holy Spirit Quran 26:193 – 194
Compare the above statement to what is declared in the Quran 96:1 by Allah Subhanah: “Proclaim! (or Read! O Mohammed) in the name of your Lord who created – & Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him.
So, (they met their fate) for breaking their pledge, and for their disbelief in the verses of Allah, and for their slaying of the prophets unjustly, and for their saying, “Our hearts are sealed” – rather, Allah has set a seal over them for their disbelief, so they do not believe but a little.
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices.
Those who have violated my covenant and have not fulfilled the terms of the covenant they made before me, I will treat like the calf they cut in two and then walked between its pieces.
A prophecy against Arabia: You caravans of Dedanites, who camp in the thickets of Arabia,
Servant of the Lord
Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations, He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets, A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice, he will not falter or be discouraged, till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.” This is what God the Lord says— the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: “I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison, and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.“I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols. See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.
Song of Praise to the Lord
Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them, Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar, son of Ishmael lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela, mountain in Medina sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops. Let them give glory to the Lord and proclaim his praise in the islands. The Lord will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.“For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth,I cry out, I gasp and pant. I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do;,I will not forsake them. But those who trust in idols before Prophet Muhammad Most of the Arabian people worshiped idols, who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’will be turned back in utter shame.
Israel Blind and Deaf
Hear, you deaf; look, you blind, and see! Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one in covenant with me, blind like the servant of the Lord? You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen.”It pleased the Lord for the sake of his righteousnessto make his law great and glorious. But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them; they have been made loot, with no one to say, “Send them back.” Which of you will listen to this or pay close attention in time to come? Who handed Jacob over to become loot, and Israel to the plunderers? Was it not the Lord, against whom we have sinned? For they would not follow his ways; they did not obey his law. So he poured out on them his burning anger, the violence of war. It enveloped them in flames, yet they did not understand; it consumed them, but they did not take it to heart.
📖Isaiah 60: 3
For behold, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you, and His glory will appear over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the
brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look around: They all gather and come to you; your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried on the arm.
Arabia and all the princes of Kedar were your customers; they did business with you in lambs, rams and goats.
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you, For darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples, but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will appear over you. Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look around, they all gather together, they come to you, your sons shall come from far away, and your daughters shall be carried on their nurses’ arms, Then you shall see and be radiant, your heart shall thrill and rejoice, because the abundance of the sea shall be brought to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you, A multitude of camels shall cover you, he young camels of Midian and Ephah; all those from Sheba shall come. They shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praise of the Lord. All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you, they shall be acceptable on my altar, and I will glorify my glorious house.
📖Deuteronomy 33:2 KJV
And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.
God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran, Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.
Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops.
But those who trust in idols, who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’ will be turned back in utter shame.
“’Arabia and all the princes of Kedar were your customers; they did business with you in lambs, rams and goats.
📖Song of Solomon 1:5
Dark am I, yet lovely, daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon.
bring water for the thirsty; you who live in Tema, bring food for the fugitives.
📖Exodus 5:1 ISV
After Moses and Aaron arrived, they told Pharaoh, “This is what the LORD God of Israel says: ‘Let my people go so they may make a pilgrimage for me in the desert.
O children of Israel!1 Remember My favours upon you. Fulfil your covenant and I will fulfil Mine, and stand in awe of Me ˹alone˺.
Believe in My revelations which confirm your Scriptures. ( Torah & Gospel ) Do not be the first to deny them or trade them for a fleeting gain. And be mindful of Me.
Do not mix truth with falsehood or hide the truth knowingly.
O Children of Israel! Remember ˹all˺ the favours I granted you and how I honoured you above the others. ( Meaning, I chose you above all peoples of your time.)
Guard yourselves against the Day on which no soul will be of help to another. No intercession (Intercession” is the act of pleading with Allah on behalf of another person on the Day of Judgment.) will be accepted, no ransom taken, and no help will be given.
˹Remember˺ how We delivered you from the people of Pharaoh, who afflicted you with dreadful torment, slaughtering your sons and keeping your women. That was a severe test from your Lord.
And ˹remember˺ when We parted the sea, rescued you, and drowned Pharaoh’s people before your very eyes.
And ˹remember˺ when We appointed forty nights for Moses, then you worshipped the calf in his absence, acting wrongfully, Even then We ˹still˺ forgave you so perhaps you would be grateful.
And ˹remember˺ when We gave Moses the Scripture—the standard ˹to distinguish between right and wrong˺ that perhaps you would be ˹rightly˺ guided, And ˹remember˺ when Moses said to his people, “O my people! Surely you have wronged yourselves by worshipping the calf, so turn in repentance to your Creator and execute ˹the calf-worshippers among˺ yourselves. That is best for you in the sight of your Creator.” Then He accepted your repentance. Surely He is the Accepter of Repentance, Most Merciful.And ˹remember˺ when you said, “O Moses! We will never believe you until we see Allah with our own eyes,” so a thunderbolt struck you while you were looking on, Then We brought you back to life after your death, so that perhaps you would be grateful.
And ˹remember when˺ We shaded you with clouds and sent down to you manna and quails,(Manna (heavenly bread) and quails (chicken-like birds) sustained the children of Israel in the wilderness after they left Egypt.) ˹saying˺, “Eat from the good things We have provided for you.” The evildoers ˹certainly˺ did not wrong Us, but wronged themselves, And ˹remember˺ when We said, “Enter this city and eat freely from wherever you please; enter the gate with humility, saying, ‘Absolve us.’ We will forgive your sins and multiply the reward for the good-doers.But the wrongdoers changed the words they were commanded to say. So We sent down a punishment from the heavens upon them for their rebelliousness.And ˹remember˺ when Moses prayed for water for his people, We said, “Strike the rock with your staff.” Then twelve springs gushed out, ˹and˺ each tribe knew its drinking place. ˹We then said,˺ “Eat and drink of Allah’s provisions, and do not go about spreading corruption in the land, And ˹remember˺ when you said, “O Moses! We cannot endure the same meal ˹every day˺. So ˹just˺ call upon your Lord on our behalf, He will bring forth for us some of what the earth produces of herbs, cucumbers, garlic, lentils, and onions.” Moses scolded ˹them˺, “Do you exchange what is better for what is worse? ˹You can˺ go down to any village and you will find what you have asked for.” They were stricken with disgrace and misery, and they invited the displeasure of Allah for rejecting Allah’s signs and unjustly killing the prophets. This is ˹a fair reward˺ for their disobedience and violations.
And ˹remember˺ when We took a covenant from you and raised the mountain above you ˹saying˺, “Hold firmly to that ˹Scripture˺ which We have given you and observe its teachings so perhaps you will become mindful ˹of Allah, Yet you turned away afterwards. Had it not been for Allah’s grace and mercy upon you, you would have certainly been of the losers.You are already aware of those of you who broke the Sabbath. We said to them, “Be disgraced apes!So We made their fate an example to present and future generations, and a lesson to the God-fearing.
And ˹remember˺ when Moses said to his people, “Allah commands you to sacrifice a cow.” They replied, “Are you mocking us?” Moses responded, “I seek refuge in Allah from acting foolishly, They said, “Call upon your Lord to clarify for us what type ˹of cow˺ it should be!” He replied, “Allah says, ‘The cow should neither be old nor young but in between. So do as you are commanded!, They said, “Call upon your Lord to specify for us its colour.” He replied, “Allah says, ‘It should be a bright yellow cow—pleasant to see, Again they said, “Call upon your Lord so that He may make clear to us which cow, for all cows look the same to us. Then, Allah willing, we will be guided ˹to the right one, He replied, “Allah says, ‘It should have been used neither to till the soil nor water the fields; wholesome and without blemish.’” They said, “Now you have come with the truth.” Yet they still slaughtered it hesitantly! ˹This is˺ when a man was killed and you disputed who the killer was, but Allah revealed what you concealed. So We instructed, “Strike the dead body with a piece of the cow.” This is how ˹easily˺ Allah brings the dead to life, showing you His signs so that you may understand. Even then your hearts became hardened like a rock or even harder, for some rocks gush rivers; others split, spilling water; while others are humbled in awe of Allah. And Allah is never unaware of what you do.
Do you ˹believers still˺ expect them to be true to you, though a group of them would hear the word of Allah then knowingly corrupt it after understanding it?When they meet the believers they say, “We believe.” But in private they say ˹to each other˺, “Will you disclose to the believers the knowledge Allah has revealed to you,(i.e., verses prophesizing the coming of the Prophet (ﷺ) in the Torah (including Deuteronomy 18:15-18 and 33:2).) so that they may use it against you before your Lord? Do you not understand?”Do they not know that Allah is aware of what they conceal and what they reveal?
And among them are the illiterate who know nothing about the Scripture except lies, and ˹so˺ they ˹wishfully˺ speculate. So woe ( i.e., warning of a curse or punishment.) to those who distort the Scripture with their own hands then say, “This is from Allah”—seeking a fleeting gain! So woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they have earned.
˹Some of˺ the Jews claim, “The Fire will not touch us except for a number of days.” Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Have you taken a pledge from Allah—for Allah never breaks His word—or are you ˹just˺ saying about Allah what you do not know?”But no! Those who commit evil and are engrossed in sin will be the residents of the Fire. They will be there forever. And those who believe and do good will be the residents of Paradise. They will be there forever.
And ˹remember˺ when We took a covenant from the children of Israel ˹stating˺, “Worship none but Allah; be kind to parents, relatives, orphans and the needy; speak kindly to people; establish prayer; and pay alms-tax.” But you ˹Israelites˺ turned away—except for a few of you—and were indifferent. And ˹remember˺ when We took your covenant that you would neither shed each other’s blood nor expel each other from their homes, you gave your pledge and bore witness. But here you are, killing each other and expelling some of your people from their homes, aiding one another in sin and aggression; and when those ˹expelled˺ come to you as captives, you still ransom them—though expelling them was unlawful for you.(The indigenous people of Medina were divided into two warring groups: Al-Aws and Al-Khazraj. Some Jewish tribes were allied with the former and others with the latter, which meant that in times of war each of these Jewish tribes had to fight along with their allies against their enemies, including other Jews. When the Prophet (ﷺ) migrated to Medina, he brought about a lasting peace in the city.) Do you believe in some of the Scripture and reject the rest? Is there any reward for those who do so among you other than disgrace in this worldly life and being subjected to the harshest punishment on the Day of Judgment? For Allah is never unaware of what you do, These are the ones who trade the Hereafter for the life of this world. So their punishment will not be reduced, nor will they be helped.
Indeed, We gave Moses the Book and sent after him successive messengers. And We gave Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the holy spirit.( Gabriel) Why is it that every time a messenger comes to you ˹Israelites˺ with something you do not like, you become arrogant, rejecting some and killing others?
And He will teach him the Scripture and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel, and [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], ‘Indeed I have come with a sign to you from your Lord in that I create [a figure] from clay for you like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of God. And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead – by permission of God. And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed there is a sign in that for you, if you are believers.
O People of the Scripture, Our messenger has come to you to make [the religion] clear to you after a period [of suspension] of messengers, unless you should say, “No bringer of good news or warner came to us.” But a bringer of good news and a warner has come to you. And God is Powerful over all things.
📖Quran 33:45 – 46
O prophet, indeed We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good news and a warner. And a Caller [Comforter] to God, by His permission, and an illuminating lamp.
📖Quran 3:98 – 99
[So] say, “O People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of God while God is Witness over what you do?” [And] say, “O People of the Scripture, why do you avert those who believe from the way of God, seeking to make it [seem] deviant, while you are witnesses [to the truth]? And God is not unaware of what you do.
O people of the Book, there has come to you Our Messenger disclosing to you much of what you have been concealing of the Book, while He overlooks much. There has come to you, from Allah, a Light and a clear Book;
Surely, those who reject the verses of Allah and slay the prophets unjustly, and slay those of the people who bid justice, give them ‘the good news’ of a painful punishment.
And whoever desires other than IsLam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.
