Abrogation Mentioned in Bible

It is so interesting. The Christians fuzzing about Abrogations of verses in Al-Qur’an, but we can find a similar case in the Bible.
It is in Hebrews 7: 18
New International Version (NIV)

18 The FORMER REGULATION IS SET ASIDE BECAUSE IT WAS WEAK AND USELESS
Other translation:
New King James Version
18. For on the one hand there is an ANNULLING OF THE FORMER COMMANDMENT because of its weakness and unprofitableness.

But this translation mentions ABROGATION.
Weymouth New Testament

On the one hand, we have here the ABROGATION OF AN EARLIER CODE because it was weak and ineffective.

The verse of stoning and suckling being eaten by the Goat

Source: https://muslimallegationhunters.home.blog/2019/10/18/the-verse-of-stoningsuckling-being-eaten-by-the-goat/


Christian Missionaries have led a new dishonest campaign of an apparent “proof” that Muslims have corrupted the Quran. Their argument is a Hadith from Sunan Ibn Majah which apparently demonstrates a goat eating the absent verse of suckling and stoning. I will touch on this topic as i go on.

Before we begin we must clarify on the concept of ‘Naskh’ (abrogation)

There are three types of abrogation in the Quran…

Ibn Salama says:

The scholars have divided abrogation into three kinds:

1)Abrogation of the recited (verse) together with the legal ruling.

2)Abrogation of the legal ruling without the recited (verse).

3)Abrogation of the recited (verse) without the legal ruling.

[1] Al-nasikh wa al-mansukh by Ibn Salama pg 5

Ahmad von Denffer said:

For abrogation of the recited (verse) together with its legal ruling:

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that it had been revealed in the Holy Qur’an that ten clear sucklings make the marriage unlawful, then it was abrogated (and substituted) by five sucklings and Allah’s apostle (may peace be upon him) died and it was before that time (found) in the Holy Qur’an (and recited by the Muslims). [34 Muslim, II, No. 3421.]

For abrogation of a legal ruling without the recited (verse):

Response to Slander – Prophet (SAW) Wearing Woman Clothing

 

 

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) descended from Isma’il (عليه السلام)

 / 

Source: https://qurananswers.me/2015/07/09/muhammad-from-ismail/


People harbouring hate for the Messenger (ﷺ) of God Almighty have created reasons to deny him since ages. Sometimes the Prophet Isma’il (عليه السلام) is condemned while quite recently, it has been alleged that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was not his descendant. At least it is a step forward where a Messenger of God ((Isma’il (عليه السلام)) is not condemned, abused and hated like he was previously done so.

A quick way to earn fame or money these days is to come up with absurd and wild conspiracy theories; the bigger they are the better they provide an earning. Some atheists have alleged that Prophet Eisa (عليه السلام) did not exist and following their footsteps, some vile ones from the Christians have made similar claims about Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). Following this conspiracy theory approach, a hollow piece by Amari alleges that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was not a descendant of Isma’il (عليه السلام).[1] We shall see how true the claim really is.

Background to the claim

The surprising thing about the claim is the approach used for it. The background approach adopted is that the earth is 6,000 years old and hence if anything of history contradicts this ‘self-claimed fact’, then that is false. To take accounts from a scripture, that mentions a 6,000 year old civilization, would not be a wise thing to do. Furthermore, if the author of the claim had paid a little attention inside his glass house[2], he would have thought better. However, on top of that, the author makes some really silly claims such as: Read more of this post

Answering Claim about Nabtal al-Harith

There have been many claims about how the Prophet may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon compared the devil to a ‘black man’ . These claims are based upon a report that have gone virtually unexplained and or unchallenged.

Let us first, look at the report :
Al Qurtoby may Allah have mercy upon him mentions in his explanation of the Quran. In his explanation, he uses the term ADAM:
Ibn Ishaaq said, ” Nabtal was a stocky man with unkempt hair on his head and his beard was unkempt too, he was ADAM in complexion with red eyes and reddish black cheeks. He was a deformed creation.” And he(Nabtal) is whom the Prophet may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon said, ”Whoever would like to see the devil should look at Nabtal.”
قاله ابن إسحاق . وكان نبتل رجلا جسيما ثائر شعر الرأس واللحية ، آدم أحمر العينين أسفع الخدين مشوه الخلقة ، وهو الذي قال فيه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : من أراد أن ينظر إلى الشيطان فلينظر إلى نبتل بن الحارث .

THE PROPHETIC BIOGRAPHY (SIRAH OF IBNU HISHAM):
السيرة النبوية لابن هشام …

By ABD AL MALIK IBN HISHAM


The March Of Khalid lbn Al-Walid To Ruin Al-‘Uzza
“Then the Messenger of Allah [peace be upon him] sent Khalid Ibn Al­ Walid to Al-‘Uzza at Nakhlah, a house which the pagans of Quraysh, Kinanah and all the tribes of Mudar exalted; and its custodians and guardians belonged to Banu Shayban of Sulaym, the allies of Banu Hashim. Hearing about the coming of Khalid, its guardian hung a sword to its neck and supported it to the mountain where it was, and asked it to kill Khalid once he would come to attack it otherwise it would not deserve to be worshipped. When Khalid reached HE RUINED IT ENTIRELY AND THEN RETURNED TO THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH [peace be upon him].”

Destruction of temple

The Muslim historian Hisham Ibn Al-Kalbi mentions the event in his book the “Book of Idols” as follows:

Ibn-‘Abbas said: Al-‘Uzza was a she-devil which used to frequent three trees in the valley of Nakhlah. When the Prophet captured Mecca, he dispatched Khalid ibn-al-Walid saying, “Go to the valley of Nakhlah; there you will find three trees. Cut down the first one.” Khalid went and cut it down. On his return to report, the Prophet asked him saying, “Have you seen anything there?” Khalid replied and said, “No.”

The Prophet ordered him to return and cut down the second tree. He went and cut it down. On his return to report the Prophet asked him a second time, “Have you seen anything there?” Khalid answered, “No.”

Thereupon the Prophet ordered him to go back and cut down the third tree. When Khalid arrived on the scene he found an Abyssinian woman with dishevelled hair and her hands placed on her shoulder[s], gnashing and grating her teeth.

Behind her stood Dubayyah al-Sulami who was then the warden of al-‘Uzza…

Turning to the woman, he dealt her a blow which severed her head in twain, and lo, she crumbled into ashes. He then cut down the tree and killed Dubayyah the warden, after which he returned to the Prophet and reported to him his exploit.

Thereupon the Prophet said, “That was al-‘Uzza. But she is no more. The Arabs shall have none after her. Verily she shall never be worshipped again.”

Proof of Abrogation From the Bible Part 3

Source: https://thedebateinitiative.com/2014/12/03/abrogation-in-the-bible/


Christian apologists often try to cast doubt on Islam because of the issue of abrogation.

In this article we will turn the tables on Christian apologists, by bringing up abrogation taking part in the Bible. Bear in mind, Christian apologists try to argue against the Quran because of abrogation, therefore if they are consistent and follow their own criteria, the should now argue and doubt the Bible because it too contains abrogation.

Can you marry your sister?

In the Bible, we read that Abraham married his half sister:

Genesis 20:11-12: And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake. And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

Later on in the Bible we read that such a marriage is forbidden, and the one who practices it is cursed:

Deuteronomy 27:22: Cursedbe he that lies with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother. And all the people shall say, Amen

So this is a clear example of a change in ruling, previously there was no command against marrying your sister, as Abraham (pbuh) practiced such an act. Afterwards however, in the law of Moses (pbuh), marrying your sister was forbidden, and the person who would do such a marriage would be cursed. Read more of this post

Proof of Abrogation From the Bible Part 2

Abrogation in Bible in detail …

Source: https://www.facebook.com/notes/answering-christanity/abrogation-in-bible-in-detail-/206912162674361/


When one studies the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, it becomes clear that omnipotent and omniscient God did make mistakes and repented. This means that the God did not know his own actions and the outcomes of the actions. According to Bible…  Now for some fine examples.

Let us first start with Old Testament. In the story of Noah(P), it is mention that:

And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground anymore for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done [Genesis 8:21]

And in the story of Moses(P), we read

    And the LORD repented of the evil which he

thought to do unto his people [Exodus 32:14]

Oh no! that is Old Testament, cries the Christian. The New Testament has replaced all that. Yes, in the New Testament, the monotheistic and henotheistic God of Israel, Yahweh, suddenly starts to be interpreted as Trinity. So, the concept of monotheistic and henotheistic God itself got abrogated in the New Testament as the Christians allege! So we have to assume that the monotheistic and henotheistic God of Israel did not know that he was Trinity and made a serious mistake or he simply changed his mind or in the worst case scenario, he cheated the People of Israel.

Proof of Abrogation From the Bible Part 1

Source: https://www.letmeturnthetables.com/2010/04/quran-abrogation-lie-of-lost-verses.html


There are many commandments in the Bible that changed. Instead of discussing them, I give concrete references for abrogation declared in the Bible.

‘For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.’ (Hebrews 7:12)

Well known Christian commentator Adam Clarke writes under this verse:

‘The priesthood, therefore, being changed, Jesus coming in the place of Aaron, the law of ordinances and ceremonies, which served only to point out the Messiah, must of necessity be changed also.’

Lost books of the Bible

In fact, there were many books to which even the authors of the Canonical books also referred but they are lost or at least not in the Bible.

Some of them are:

1- The Book of the Wars of the Lord mentioned in Numbers 21:14
2- Book of Jasher mentioned in Joshua 10: 13 etc
3- Book of Nathan the Prophet mentioned in2-Chronicles 9: 29
4- Acts of Rehoboam & Book of Shemaiah the prophet mentioned in 2-Chronicles 12:15
5- Book of the acts of Solomon mentioned in 1-Kings 11:41
6- Acts of Uzziah mentioned in 2-Chronicles 26:22

This proves that the teachings of the prophets have been lost. Do Christians have any scriptural proof or historical evidence that nothing of value has been lost in these books and their teachings and records have been preserved in their so-called canon now?

All this exposes the liars who try to put the authenticity Book of Islam to doubt while their own book of authority is in the worst condition on the very accounts they try to challenge the Quran.

Jews actually confirming the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad

Ibn Hisham, As-Sirah an-Nabawiyyah, vol. 2, pp. 257-258, Cited in Muhammad Fathi Mus’ad, The Wives of the Prophet Muhammad: Their Strives and Their Lives, p.162

Safiyyah (May Allah be pleased with her) came from a family that held a significant amount of power. Her father, Huyayy ibn Akhtab was a leader of one of the largest Jewish tribes living in Madinah. Safiyyah narrates:

I was my father’s and my uncle’s favorite child. When the Messenger of Allah came to Madinah and stayed at Quba, my parents went to him at night. And when they looked disconcerted and worn out, I received them cheerfully but to my surprise no one of them turned to me. They were so grieved that they did not feel my presence. I heard my uncle, Abu Yasir, saying to my father, “IS IT REALLY HIM?” HE SAID, “YES, BY ALLAH”. MY UNCLE SAID: “Can you recognize him and confirm this?” He said, “YES”. MY UNCLE SAID, “How do you feel towards him?” He said, “By Allah I shall be his enemy as long as I live.” [i]

Safiyyah (May Allah be pleased with her) was shocked by this reaction of her father and uncle after meeting the Messenger of Allah (PBUH). THEY CONFIRMED THAT THIS MAN WAS TRULY A MESSENGER OF GOD, BUT INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING HIM THEY DECIDED TO FIGHT HIM. She later explained that it was due of their sense of superiority because of lineage that they refused to accept an Arab Prophet.
