“SATAN” IS MUSLIM’S FIRST ENEMY

When you involve in RELIGION DEBATE FORUM, you will find one IGNORANT Non Muslim’s favorite word.

“Islam is SATAN”, “Your Prophet inspired by SATAN”, “It’s SATAN inspired your Prophet in the cave. Not Gabriel.” Or, “SATAN taking shape as Gabriel”.

When you find this case, just collect all the verses about SATAN in Al-Qur’an and explain that Allah taught Muslims to make SATAN as their GREAT ENEMY.


SATAN WILL MAKE YOU FORGET THE REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH (GOD).

THE DESCRIPTIVE TITLES OF JESUS IN THE QURAN (PART 2 OF 2): “THE MESSIAH” AND “A MIRACLE”

 (3)     “Word” from God

Jesus is referred to as a “Word” from God in three passages in the Quran.  No other prophet has been described with such a title.

“…O Mary!  Behold, God gives you good news of a word from Him, who shall become known as the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary…” (Quran 3:45)

“…The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of God, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary…” (Quran 4:171)

“…God gives you good news of (a son whose name is) John, (who comes) to confirm a word from God…” (Quran 3:39)

Christians believe that in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus is identified as “the Word” (logos in Greek) incarnated, or made flesh.  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth…” Read more of this post

THE DESCRIPTIVE TITLES OF JESUS IN THE QURAN (PART 1 OF 2): “THE MESSIAH” AND “A MIRACLE”

Islam, besides Christianity, is the only major world religion that recognizes Jesus.  A Muslim’s belief is incomplete without Jesus.  Prophet Muhammad said:

“If anyone testifies that none has the right to be worshipped but God alone who has no partners, and that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger, and that Jesus is God’s servant and His Messenger and His Word which He bestowed on Mary and a Spirit from Him, and that Paradise is true, and Hell is true, God will admit him into Paradise with the deeds which he has done even if those deeds were few.”[1]

In other words, without sound belief in Jesus, one can never earn God’s Paradise.  As with other prophets of God, Muslims add to his name, alai his-salam, which means, ‘Peace be upon him.’[2] Even though Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you,”[3]  in the Gospel, Christians rarely use any honorific term but ‘Christ’, and this as part of his name.  Though this may be due to the idea that the Christian does not pray for him, but to him, it shows that Muslims have a great deal of respect for him despite not sharing such a viewpoint.

Story of Prophet Isa/Jesus (pbuh) Ibn Kathir

In many verses of the Glorious Qur’an Allah the Exalted denied the claim of the Christians that He has a son. A delegation from Nagran came to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). They began to talk about their claim about the Trinity, which is that Allah is three in one, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, with some disagreement among their sects. That is why Allah affirmed in many verses of the Qur’an that Jesus is a slave of Allah, whom He molded in the womb of his mother like any other of His creatures, and that He created him without a father, as He created Adam without a father or a mother.

Allah the Almighty said: Allah chose Adam, Noah, the family of Abraham and the family of Imran above the Alamin (mankind and jinns)(of their times). Offspring, one of theo other, and Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.

Remember when the wife of Imran said: “O my Lord! I have vowed to You what (the child that) is in my womb to be dedicated for Your services (free from all worldly work; to serve Your Place of worship), so accept this, from me. Verily, You are the All-Hearer, the All Knowing.”

Then when she delivered her (child Mary), she said: “O my Lord! I have delivered a female child,” and Allah knew better what she delivered, – “and the male is not like the female, and I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge with You (Allah) for her and for her offspring from Satan, the outcast.” Read more of this post

Why does the Qur’an Call Jesus (pbuh) “Al-Maseeh”

By

Moiz Amjad

Question:

I wish to seek your help regarding the usage of “Al-Maseeh” in reference to the Qur’an.

This is an excerpt of my argument with a Christian regarding the usage of “Al-Maseeh“. He was asking these questions:

What did Jesus do, according to the Qur’an, that made him the Messiah? He preached, that’s all?  What differentiates the Messiah from any other prophet? Again, the Qur’an’s assertion that Jesus is the Messiah is much more nonsensical than any Christian claim.

My argument and response to this was:

Every prophet of God is an anointed one of God, a Messiah, but the title Al-Maseeh or Messiah, or its translation “Christ” is exclusively reserved for Jesus, the son of Mary, in both Islam and in Christianity.  This is not unusual in religion. There are certain other honorific titles which may be applied to more than one prophet, yet being made exclusive to one by usage: like “Rasulullah“, meaning “Messenger of God”, which title is applied to both Moses (19:51) and Jesus (61:6) in the Holy Quran. Yet “Rasullullah” has become synonymous only with Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, among Muslims (if you have studied Islam, that is). Every prophet is indeed a “Friend of God”, but its Arabic equivalent “Khaleellullah” is exclusively associated with Prophet Abraham (pbuh). This does not mean that the others are not God’s friends. “Kaleemullah“, meaning “One who spoke with Allah” is never used for anyone other than Moses, yet we believe that God spoke with many of His messengers, including Jesus and Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of God be upon all His prophets. Associating certain titles with certain personages only, does not make them exclusive or unique in any way. We honour all in varying terms. Read more of this post

About ARAMAIC the language of Jesus

From: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markdroberts/series/what-language-did-jesus-speak-why-does-it-matter/

Long Article by Marc.D.Roberts. To improve my knowledge.

Context – What is Aramaic?

If you’ve been hanging around churches for as long as I have, you’ve probably heard the word “Aramaic.” It was used often during the time when Mel Gibson released The Passion of the Christ, since most of the movie script was in Aramaic. But that didn’t exactly make “Aramaic” a household word. Before we try to figure out which language(s) Jesus spoke, it would be good to have some basic notion of Aramaic, since it is a leading candidate for the starring role in this drama.

Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and similar languages. According to an expert linguist whom I consulted, Hebrew and Aramaic are related much as French and Spanish or Cantonese and Mandarin. During the time of the Assyrian Empire (8th century BC), Aramaic became used throughout the Ancient Near East as the language of diplomacy. In the time of the Persian Empire (6th-4th century BC), Aramaic was the predominant language of the region. Since Judea was part of the Persian Empire, Jews for whom Hebrew was a primary language began to speak Aramaic, especially those of the upper classes. By the time of Jesus, Aramaic was the most common language in Judea, though Hebrew may have been dominant in certain areas, such as Jerusalem or the Qumran community by the Dead Sea. Greek usage was also widespread in those regions during the first century A.D. Read more of this post

The Real Name of Jesus = EASHOA = ISHO

Many Christians asking Muslims. “Why you call him ‘ISA. Jesus is the correct name.”

I will tell you the naming of Jesus in Islam is closest to the naming of Jesus’ first language.

Jesus first language is ARAMAIC. The name “JESUS” is unknown in time of Jesus and his disciples because they called him “EASHOA” or “ISHO”

Early_Syriac_alphabet_form_of_the_name_of_Jesus.svg

Isho or Eesho, the Aramaic/Syriac name of Jesus

Arabic عيسى ‘Isa

Al-Qur’an (in Islam) call him:

الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى

“Al-Masih ‘Isa” or “‘Isa Al-Masih”

In Aramaic:

Eashoa’ M’sheekha

ISHO MASIKH

eshoa masikh

The Name of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ in the Ancient Aramaic language is:

Eashoa’ M’sheekha

[name of Jesus in Aramaic]

In the Ancient Aramaic His name is written as shown above. Click on the name to hear the audio.

Eashoa’ means, “the Life-Giver.” Msheekha means, “the Anointed One.” Eashoa’ Msheekha: The Anointed Life-Giver.

Many visitors to this website e-mail me about the use of the name Jesus Christ. They say why do you use the English designations when the true name of Jesus is “Eashoa” and Christ is “The Anointed One.” Some of the people e-mailing me prefer the spelling “Yeshua.” And there are some other variations, but none of these are accurate transliterations. I prefer my own transliteration: Eashoa’.

I take this occasion to explain the usages, now that even God is in danger of being removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. First of all, the name of Jesus is not different from His name in the original language. In the Ancient Aramaic, the name is spelled “yeh-sheen-waw-ein.” In English the “yeh” becomes “J,” the “sheen” becomes “s,” the “waw” becomes a “u,” and the “ein,” becomes an “s.” Now, this might not sound like the same name, but since three of the four letters in the name don’t have English language equivalents, the English pronunciation had to be modified. Eashoa’ and Jesus are the very same name, albeit the transliterations are of two very different languages, with four thousand years of divergent evolution.

The name of Christ comes from the Greek word for “anointed.” The Greek word “Khristos” comes from the word for “oil.” The English language is based on the Latin, which in turn is based on the Greek. The word “Msheekhah” is the original word for “The Anointed.” Another good choice for “Christ” is the Messiah — again from “Msheekhah.” The same word in all the languages, designating Jesus as the Messiah prophesied by the Old Testament.

There are many misconceptions regarding the language of the Bible. In my opinion they’re all aimed at misleading people from the Truth, which is the Faith in Eashoa (Jesus) the Messiah.

Hidden Prophecies of Al-Qur’an

In The Quran itself, within some of its chapters, it foretells events in the future that have come true; these are more commonly known as “prophecies”.

It tells the story of the Exodus from Egypt, in which Moses and the Hebrews enslaved to the Pharaoh of the time escape –

“We delivered the Children of Israel across the sea. Pharaoh and his troops pursued them, aggressively and sinfully. When drowning became a reality for him, he said, “I believe there is no god except in the One whom the Children of Israel have believed; I am a submitter. Too late! For you have rebelled already, and chose to be a transgressor. Today, we will preserve your body, to set you up as a lesson for future generations. Verily, many among mankind are totally oblivious to our signs.” (Holy Quran, from 10:90 to 10:92)

As you can see from the above passage, The Quran prophesises that the body of the Pharaoh will be preserved for future generations.

This was proved correct when the mummy of Merneptah (the Pharaoh of the Exodus) was discovered well preserved in 1898, and it can be seen on display in the Royal Mummies Room of the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. Read more of this post

Christian & Islamic Views of God: Our differences don’t change who God is

One student, in a last effort to refute the presentation, conceded “Islam may be referring to the same God as the Jews and Christians linguistically, but Islam sees God very differently than Christianity.”  In a similar vein, I received through a friend a recent email from Ravi Zacharias’ ministry. The email from Ravi’s staff confirmed that we don’t disagree on the name of God, but rather His character. I agree that this is true; yet in my work I have found that those differences are much narrower than we might first suppose.

There are indeed differences in perception of the character of God, just as there are many views people may have of you!  Some view you as a friend, others as an enemy. Some may look at you as someone who is fair, others as a scoundrel. My wife views me as a partner, lover, etc, much differently than my children; they in turn see me differently than my siblings. Moreover, each of them has their individual understanding of me; my character, nature and directives. But I am the same person, viewed differently by different people. Read more of this post

Is Allah the God of the Bible? Words from Christians Pt. 2 of 3

From:

https://wordpress.com/post/wedefendislam.wordpress.com/1491

In Part 1 we addressed the differences in belief about Allah and God and began the discussion by sharing research and perspective on the argument that Allah is a pagan moon-god.  We continue this dialogue with a linguistic overview of the words used to name God in various languages.

Is the English “God” Pagan?

If one argues the name “Allah” is pagan-based, what about the origins of the English word “God?”  I personally was stunned to learn that it actually has more historic baggage than Semitic words such as Allah.  “God” is derived from a proto-Germanic pagan word (possibly Zoroastrian) for a water god, water spirit, or idol (pronounced “gut”). It held no gender until the Germanic tribes adopted Christianity, when the male gender was later included. Read more of this post
