The name “MUHAMMAD” found in the Old Testament.

It’s in The Song of Songs Chapter 5: 16

Hebrew text:

חכו ממתקים וכלו
מחמדים זה דודי
וזה רעי בנות
ירושלם׃

Transliteration:

ChKV MMThQYM VKLV MChMDYM ZH DVDY VZH Ur’yY BNVTh YUrVShLM.

Translation in English:

King James Version
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

Now Copy this Hebrew word:

מחמדים

to Google Translation. Result:

muhammadim

If you delete the LAST of Hebrew word, this is what you’ll have:

muhammad

So, the correct translation is:

King James Version
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is MUHAMMAD. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

The name “AHMAD” found in the Bible

By Admin.

There are prophecies about the coming of Propet Muhammad (pbuh) inside the Bible. But one clear evidence is Isaiah 42:1-4 where you can find the word “AHMED /AHMAD” which is translated as “whom I uphold”.


“Behold! My Servant, whom I uphold; My Elect One, in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry out, nor raise His voice, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench. In truth He shall bring forth justice. 4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established justice in the earth; and the islands shall wait for His law.”

— Isaiah 42:1-4
In Hebrew, WHOM I UPHOLD is:

(Etmokh) אחמד 

Now go to “Google Translate” This is what you’ll find:

The Word Allah In The Arabic Bible

Abu Imân cAbd ar-Rahmân Robert Squires

Just a few examples for those who are still in doubt . . .

The images below, with the exception of the first image, were taken directly from The Holy Bible in Arabic. Referred to in Arabic as al-Kitâb al-Muqadis (i.e. ,The Holy Book), this is the scripture which is used by Arabic-speaking Christians (of which there are still about 15 to 20 million in the Middle East). So that those unfamiliar with Arabic script have something to compare these images with, the first image below is a verse from the Qur’ân – which is the Muslim scripture. In the images, the Arabic word Allah is underlined in red so that it can be easily identified. Upon comparing the images, one should be able to clearly see that the word Allah appears in both the Qur’ânic and Arabic Bible images. Indeed, the word Allah appears throughout Arabic translations of the Bible, since it is simply the Arabic name for Almighty God. Insha’llah, the examples below will help quell the doubts of those who have been duped into believing that Muslims worship a different god – either by the hostile media or by Christian missionary propaganda. We hope that this serves as enough documentation for those who still have doubts about this. We could think of no other way to prove this point, except to encourage everyone to do further critical and open-minded research on their own. Please, don’t forget to compare the images . . .

Murder in the Bible

I put this article for me to use it in time debating the Christians who claim Islam is the most violent religion.


The act of murder is rampant in the Bible.  In much of the Bible, especially the Old Testament, there are laws that command that people be killed for absurd reasons such as working on the Sabbath, being gay, cursing your parents, or not being a virgin on your wedding night.  In addition to these crazy and immoral laws, there are plenty of examples of God’s irrationality by his direct killing of many people for reasons that defy any rational explanation such as killing children who make fun of bald people, and the killing of a man who tried to keep the ark of God from falling during transport.  There are also countless examples of mass murders commanded by God, including the murder of women, infants, and children.

The following passages are a very small percentage of the total passages approving of murder in the Bible.  They are divided here into three parts: 1) Capital Punishment Crimes, 2) God’s Murders for Stupid Reasons, 3) Murdering Children, and 4) Miscellaneous Murders.  This list is long, but it barely scratches the surface of all the murders approved of in the Bible.

1) Capital Punishment Crimes:

Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

Kill Witches

You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB) Read more of this post

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

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

Church Tradition & The Textual Integrity Of The Bible

by M S M Saifullah, Qasim Iqbal & Muhammad Ghoniem

Source: http://www.islamic-awareness.org

Assalamu-alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu:

The basis of evaluation of any hadîth (story or report) in Islam of any text concerned particularly with religion is based on the study of matn (i.e., text) and its isnad (i.e., chain of narration).

A hadîth (pl. ahâdîth) is composed of two parts: the matn (text) and the isnad (chain of reporters). A text may seem to be logical and reasonable but it needs an authentic isnad with reliable reporters to be acceptable; cAbdullah b. al-Mubârak (d. 181 AH), one of the illustrious teachers of Imâm al-Bukhârî, said, “The isnad is part of the religion: had it not been for the isnad, whoever wished to would have said whatever he liked.”[1]

The Christian ‘hadîth’ is composed of matn (text) but no isnad (chain of narration). Without isnad, as cAbdullah b. al-Mubarak said, anyone can claim anything saying that it is coming from the authority. The authorities in the case of Christian ‘hadîth’ are the Apostles and later day Church Fathers. But how can one be sure that the Christian ‘hadîth’ is not mixed with falsehood without the proper isnad and its verification?

The Old Testament, to certain extent and the New Testament in toto lack chain of narration. When this argument was put forward, the Christian missionary Jochen Katz wrote:

On 8 Oct 1998, Jochen Katz wrote (on a different thread):

> That is a bogus argument from an Islamic point of view.

Missionaries when cornered try to wiggle out of the argument by calling names. According to Katz, the Islamic argument of using the chain of narration, i.e., isnad, is ‘bogus’ because the New Testament and major part of Old Testament lacks it and above all it is a Muslim argument. By calling the Islamic argument of isnad ‘bogus’ Katz thought that he is already refuted it. Unfortunately, the Orientalists like Bernard Lewis who read this ‘bogus’ Islamic tradition and compares it with the Christian scholarship say that: Read more of this post

WHO WROTE THE BIBLE (Article 1)

Friedman, Richard Elliott
Summit Books (Simon & Schuster, Inc.) 1987
[We begin our quote from page 232-233]

Artistry Upon Artistry

The redactor [1] , whom I identify as Ezra, has been the least appreciated of the contributors to the Five Books of Moses. Usually, more credit is given to the authors of the stories and the laws. That may be an error.

The redactor was as much an artist, in his own way, as the authors of J, E, P and, D were in theirs. His contribution was certainly as significant as theirs.

His task was not merely difficult, it was creative. It called for wisdom and literary sensitivity at each step, as well as a skill that is no less an art than storytelling.

In the end, he was the one who created the work that we have read all these years. He assembled the final form of the stories and laws that, in thousands of ways, have influenced millions. Read more of this post

101 Proofs that the Quran is Not Copied from the Bible

By Abdalla S. Alothman

{Nay, We fling (send down) the truth (this Qur’ân) against the falsehood (disbelief), so it destroys it, and behold, it (falsehood) is vanished. And woe to you for that (lie) which you ascribe (to Us)}.
[Quran 21:18]

Time and time again, we Muslims have to endure accusations that our Qur’an is copied from the Bible. Below are 101 proofs that makes it impossible for the Qur’an to be copied from the Bible.

1 – Who was created first, Adam or Satan? The Quran says Satan, the Bible doesn’t say anything?

2 – Who was created first, Adam or the Angles? The Quran says the Angels, the Bible doesn’t say anything? Read more of this post

Legitimacy of Hagar and Ishmael

Many Christians and Jews mistakenly believe that Abraham’s descendants through Ishmael (Muhammad and his ancestors, as seen in Fig. 3) were excluded from God’s covenant with Abraham (pbuh) because Ishmael’s mother, Hagar,was not a legitimate wife of Abraham, thus, her son Ishmael (the father of the Arabs) was not a legitimate son of Abraham. Therefore, they conclude that Ishmael(pbuh) and his descendants were not included in God’s covenant with the sons of Abraham (pbuh) and that this covenant was exclusive to Abraham’s second son, Isaac, the father of the Jews.

In what follows we will disprove each of these claims, in addition to showing evidence of human tampering with the text of the Biblical verses.

The story of Ishmael according to the Bible is as follows: Abraham married Sarah (pbut). Sarah was a barren woman and bore him no children (Genesis 16:1). God then made a great promise to Abraham even before any children were born to him.

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Read more of this post
