God hears thee / Sacrifice of Abraham / Shiloh & the Promised Land



While studying the Bible and the revelations therein, I realized that the Bible contains many prophecies about the coming of a great prophet of God. The coming of this prophet is mentioned by Abraham, Moses, John, Jesus and many other prophets (peace be upon them) in the Bible.
Most of these Bible verses mention a great prophet who has yet to come. I have selected only a few of those verses that are very clear and supported by history for discussion.
To discuss all the related material in the Bible would be too lengthy and beyond the scope of this book.
It is expected that the material presented here will clearly show that this prophet, who was to come after Jesus (pbuh), is Muhammad (pbuh) the promised prophet of Allah.

Translating the Old Testament (Hebrew) and the New Testament (Greek) to other languages presents many difficulties. Hebrew has 24 letters, English has 26 letters, and Arabic has 28 letters. Many words that were difficult to translate were either poorly translated, not translated, incorrectly translated, or omitted. Certain words also change meaning from generation to generation. Sometimes the writers of the Bible (or its chapters) changed words from place to place and put them anywhere they fitted according to their thinking. This, they did thinking in their minds that the former writers had made mistakes. Historical records were also changed or lost for numerous reasons. The loss of historical facts and places has also been considerable. For example: the "Wilderness of Paran" which included the west part of the Arabian Desert and Sinai. This area included Makkah and Medina. It is presently called Hejaz. During the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) the area was called Faran. ( see details here )
The other examples are: Genesis 1:2 mentions the spirit, stating that "and the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit, of God move upon the face of the waters." In the original Bible which was revealed in Hebrew, the word was (wind) instead of (Spirit). That is how it was translated to English and other Languages. The word in Hebrew was revealed and written (Riah) which means (wind) and it is still there. And the word (Rooh) in Hebrew which means (spirit). Those words (Rooh, Riah) are the same in Hebrew and Arabic. Allah created for the Earth, its atmosphere which is partly made of wind. This is what is meant in the verse, it has no connection whatsoever with Spirit. The water and atmosphere fulfill the requirement of man to be later created on Earth.
We know that a prophet (any prophet) was not allowed to change any of the Revelation sent to him from God, so how is it for any person to change the word of Allah; it would no longer be His word. It is the Christian belief to give support to their claim that Jesus was "Rooh Allah" the spirit of God. They did that to counteract the Jews who did not believe in "Spirit" and they tried to reduce the importance which the Jews were teaching with respect to Jacob (Israel) and David being called sons or close to God in the Bible (Exodus 4:22 and Psalm 2:7). Christians instead of two had the chance to claim three Gods; the God (Allah) the creator, the Holy Spirit and, Jesus. In claiming this; they forget the contents of the Bible elsewhere (Matthew 23:9 where Jesus states ... " and call no man your father upon the earth: for ONE is your father which is in heavens." Here Jesus clearly means he is not God, or the son of God. Islam also supports the belief of Jesus that Allah is above in the Heavens and is the only God to be worshipped. This also clarified through Jesus what the word father means in the Bible that there is ONE and only ONE (not three) God (Allah).

Many Jewish scholars converted to Islam in its early days. They worked very sincerely and became very important in Islamic history. This information was lost to later generations of Jews and Christians. Often, people were not mentioned by name but in descriptive terms. These are often misinterpreted to be names or facts.

Nouns were often confused with verbs and adverbs, like the word "Dan" in Genesis 49:16. In both Hebrew and Arabic the word Dan means "to judge" and it is not a person's name. But a very important concept for the reader to understand is that during the times of the prophets, people who were religious and devout were often called a child of God or son of God. This was meant figuratively, certainly not literally. In Exodus 7:1 God tells Moses (pbuh), that the power, God has given to Moses is far greater than the power Pharaoh has. Since Pharaoh considered himself a God, then Moses would be a God over Pharaoh. The Jews would never have thought that Moses (pbuh) was God the Creator. This was a description for Moses only. Again in Exodus 4:22 God tells Moses to tell Pharaoh that if Pharaoh kills God's first born son, Israel (the people), then God will kill Pharaoh's first born son. The Jews never thought that Jacob was literally the son of God. They understood that the meaning of certain words fit with the context of the conversation. Before the coming of Islam, many Arab countries were under Christian rule. The area south of Iraq was controlled by Persia. The population of Yemen was mostly Jewish, and the people of Arabia were idol worshippers. All of these areas eventually converted to Islam. Christians living outside these areas, especially after the Crusades, would not understand verses in the Bible that were related to Islam, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), or Arabia. Many of the maps included in the Bible include many misconceptions of place and people which originated from Jewish and Christian interpretations. Two improper translations relating to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) are found in the Bible. The first is in Haggai 2:7, where Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) name is mentioned. Mahmad Hamdduit is found in Hebrew, but no English word can be properly used. Therefore, a close sounding word was used and translated to mean "desire."

During the sixteenth century, when the King James Version of the Bible was written, the translators were fully aware of the name Mahrnad. But they were not ready to accept that prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was this Great Messenger of God and so they decided to change his name to the word "Desire". Even in Arabic, they still used the word (Desire) in their translations. Such a mistake happened in Isaiah 21: 13 where a word was translated to mean "inspiration. "The Bible is full of such errors of translation done from time to time and from place to place. Therefore, I would suggest that the reader carefully examine the difficulties in translating and to not discard certain verses for lack of understanding.

Translating the Old Testament (Hebrew) and the New Testament to other languages presents many difficulties. Certain words also change meanings.

Genesis 1: 1,2 

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 
2 And the earth was without form, face of the deep. And the wind (spirit) of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The Jews were showing with respect to Jacob (Israel) and David being called sons of (or close to God) in the Bible
Exodus 4:22 and Psalm 2:7

Exodus 4: 22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh: Thus saith the LORD: Israel is My son, My first-born.

Psalm 2:7 I will tell of the decree: the LORD said unto me: 'Thou art My son, this day have I begotten thee .

Prophecy Servant of God

word Atmak not necessarily means ‘whom I uphold’ but is infact a name

the writing of Atmak is אתמך
the writing of Ahmad is אחמד

Isaiah 42:1
God says
“Behold, 'My Servant' (pronounced as Abd-ee), ‘whom I uphold’ (pronounced as Atmak);

God mentioning about the coming of His servant
Behold My Servant Ahmad (Isaiah 42:1) - so who is this Ahmad as in God'servant?

He is none other than
Abd-Allah Ahmad (Servant of God, Ahmad) - Prophet Muhammad s.a.w


GENESIS 16:1-16.

The Bible contains discussion of only a few women who were spoken to by Angels of God (Allah). One of these blessed women was Hagar, the mother of Ishmael (pbuh). Hagar, a highly respected woman, was told by an Angel of God that she would have a son whose name would be Ishmael (pbuh). The name "Ishmael" means "God hears thee".

Only a few Prophets have been named by God. The importance of Ishmael (pbuh) is that he was God's answer to the prayers of Abraham (pbuh) and his wives Sarah and Hagar, for a son. God blessed them with Ishmael (pbuh). Ishmael was the first born and, therefore, was given the full attention of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar.

God had not given Sarah a son by Abraham (pbuh). This was a test from God to Sarah, and here reward was to come later. Because she could not bear a son, Sarah persuaded Abraham (pbuh) to marry Hagar. Sarah loved Hagar and Ishmael (pbuh). God blessed Sarah for the great love she showed for Hagar and Ishmael (pbuh) by giving her a son, Isaac (pbuh). Sarah loved Hagar and Ishmael so much, she made no distinction between Ishmael and Isaac, and God blessed all of the Abraham family (Sura 11:71-76). Thus it has become logical for a woman of this world to request here husband to marry another woman if she did not bear a child. And Sarah, a woman full of love for Hagar the new wife of Abraham was rewarded with a son by Hagar, Genesis 16:2-3. Allah blessed the whole family with a son (Ishmael). In (Genesis 18:18-19 and 17:20) Abraham's family was blessed due to the said reason: This all this blessing came from Allah due to the first son Ishmael.

As in Genesis 25:7-10 Abraham (pbuh) live 175 years and when he was of good age when he died. His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Macphelah (now called Al Khalil) in Palestine where his first wife Sarah was also buried. This is beside Al Khalil Mosque; where Muslims and Jews pray in separate compartments. The presence of two sons at the time of burial of their father clearly shows the good relation between them and with their father. Ishmael was living generally in Makkah a long distance from Palestine, but they were often visiting each other and keeping family relations.

The younger brother Isaac (pbuh) must have called his elder brother in the sickness of his father sometime earlier such that he (Ishmael) could be present at the time of burial.

The loving father maintained good relations with all his sons from all three wives. He was very old even at the time of birth of his first two sons, but later with the blessing of Allah, he begat six sons from the third wife Keturah. In order to make Children of Abraham the father of big nations as mentioned in Gen 17:4.
Ishmael was a Child when he was brought to Makkah by his father Abraham and his Mother Hagar. He grew up into a strong and sturdy man in that land of a desert Gen 16:12, where he married Rahlah Bent Mothath of Bani Jarham by the consent of his father, who was visiting them every now and then.

'The Visitations of Abraham to his son Ishmael (pbut) is clear from the fact that the Kaabah, the House of Allah, was built by both father and son working together. The children of the third wife Keturah were living in Median which is north of Hejaz and south of Aqaba. Thus, it is crystal clear that Prophet Abraham who had to be the great father of great Muslim nations which was fulfilled and blessed only through Prophet Muhammad. Gen 18.18. Through Prophet Muhammad Gen 17:4; who become Muslims lived a happy social life with peace and justice among the member of Abraham family.

Esau son of Isaac married Mahalath daughter of Ishmael, Gen 28:9 and Moses (pbuh) married Zipporah, Exodus 4:21 from descendants of Keturah, and there are many other examples of inter marriages in the Abraham family.

Not a trace of difference among all brothers, and Allah blessed them in all respects. The main covenants of Allah to Abraham were passed to Isaac, and his Children. They were made responsible to protect the everlasting covenant and they were blessed by ruling the country Palestine, by David and Solomon (pbut), which Allah had fulfilled that promise to Isaac.

In Gen 15:18-21. Allah promised Abraham, the land from the Euphrates to the Nile including Palestine, to his children. Allah had fulfilled that promise through Ishmael by Muhammad the last Prophet and his companions in 638 A.D.
When Abraham was 17 years old, he rejected what the people in his time worshipped idols, the sun, the moon, and the stars, etc. He was the only one to worship (the One God) Allah. When he rejected all others, he prayed to the Creator to guide him on the right path and to make him wise. When he destroyed the people's gods they under the order of King Nimrod put him in fire where he remained for days, Sura 37:83-98. Allah ordered the fire not to harm him, though he preferred this fire in this world by putting his life at stake; compared to being thrown in fire (Hell) in the next world after the Day of Judgment. He was not afraid of the fire and surrendered to Allah. Allah ordered the fire to be cool and peaceful to Abraham. This was the first test and the first sacrifice of Prophet Abraham. Allah rewarded him by saving his life and making him wise.

The second test upon Abraham and his surrender to Allah was in the matter of Sarah, his wife and the king of Egypt. Under the directions of Allah, Abraham left Canaan (Palestine) where the land was dry and there was famine, Gen 12:10, and went to Egypt. The king of Egypt tried to insult his wife Sarah, Gen 12:10-20 he could not do here any harm as she was under the protection of Allah. The king felt ashamed and to compensate Abraham, he offered him the best available lady (Hager) to be slave for Abraham's wife. As Abraham could not fight the King of Egypt, he solely depended upon Allah for protection of his wife. The reward for this dependence was a great lady (Hager).

She remained in the same house for ten years with Sarah and was tested by her to be the best lady as a wife to her husband Abraham, although Hagar was a slave woman but she was never used by Abraham as was their practice at those times. It was only on the request of Sarah with all passion that Abraham married Hagar, Gen 16:1-3.

Sarah loved the child Ishmael and his mother Hagar and it was after 13 years that she got the reward of this sacrifice over a period of 23 years. Abraham who did not ask Allah for a child all his life, was given a child, in whose progeny a rose the greatest man in the world: The last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

Abraham under the order of Allah took his wife Hagar and his first son Ishmael to Makkah a bare desert at that time, and left them there under Allah's protection as mentioned in Gen 21 :20. And later with the help of this son (Ishmael) built the house of Allah, the Kaabah.

Another great sacrifice by Abraham and his first son Ismael when Abraham through a vision was asked to slaughter his only son. Now Sarah's sacrifice for all 23 years and she being happily with the only child from the second wife, and the sacrifice of Hagar, to live in a desert with a child for 13 years, and above all Abraham remaining at peace till his old age without a child and then upon a direction of Allah, and through a vision becomes ready to slaughter his young son. The thirteen year old faithful son is also ready to carry out the vision of his father, and fulfill the order of Allah with patience and with no hesitation.Gen 17: 18

By the will of Allah Ishmael remained alive and a sacrifice was accepted through a big slaughtered ram which was sent down from Allah by an angel.

The great sacrifices by all the family brought a fruit, a son (Isaac), who, was granted to Sarah the very next year when Abraham was one hundred years old, Gen 21:5, and 17:17. The sacrifice or Abraham and Ishmael was made a tradition (Sunna) for all times to come, for those who visit Kaabah for hajj. And above all the entire great family was blessed with a son from the children of Ishmael who would be the last Prophet to the world. He would generate a great Muslim nation and a big Islamic State.

Thus all the nations of the world were blessed only through the descendants of Ishmael (pbuh) for all times, to fulfill the promise of Allah to Abraham, Gen 12:2 and 18:18-19.

No family or any nation in the world was blessed through Israelis, (the children of Isaac).

Therefore, any person or nation who does not follow the last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) from the children of Ishmael (pbuh), will get a curse from Allah according to Gen 12:3.

The king of Egypt offered Sarah the best available woman from his people (Hagar) to be her slave. Genesis 12:15-16, Genesis 20:6-8
Genesis 12: 15-16

15. And the princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

16. And he dealt well with Abram for her sake; and he had sheep, and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and maid-servants, and she-asses, and camels.

Genesis 20: 6-8

6 And God said to him in the dream: 'Yea, I know that in the simplicity of thy heart thou has done this, and I also withheld thee from sinning against Me. Therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

7 Now therefore restore the man's wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live; and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.' 

God hears thee
(Abraham, Ishmael, Sarah, Hagar)
Gen 16: 1-16.
1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bore him no children; and she had a handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. 
2 And Sarai said unto Abram: 'Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing; go in, I pray thee, unto my handmaid; it may be that I shall be builded up through her.' And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to Abram her husband to be his wife.
4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
5 And Sarai said unto Abram: 'My wrong be upon thee: I gave my handmaid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.' 
6 But Abram said unto Sarai: 'Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her that which is good in thine eyes.' And Sarai dealt harshly with her, and she fled from her face.
7 A the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
8 And he said: 'Hagar, Sarai's handmaid, whence camest thou? and whither goest thou?' And she said: 'I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.'
9 And the angel of the LORD said unto her: 'Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.'
10 And the angel of the LORD said unto her: 'I will greatly multiply thy seed, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her: 'Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son; and thou shalt call his name Ishmael, because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
12 And he shall be a wild ass of a man: his hand shall be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the face of all his brethren.'
13 And she called the name of the LORD that spoke unto her, Thou art a God of seeing; for she said: 'Have I even here seen him that seeth Me?'
14 Wherefore the well was called 'Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
15 And Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.
16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. 

God told Abraham to sacrifice his first born son, Ishmael when he was 14. This happened 1 year before the birth of Isaac. Abraham wishes his son could live
Genesis 17: 18 

18 And Abraham said unto God: 'Oh that Ishmael might live before Thee!'

Abraham lived 175 years and when he was of good age he died.
Gen 25: 7-10.
7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, a hundred threescore and fifteen years. 
8 And Abraham expired, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
9 And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;
10 the field which Abraham purchased of the children of Heth; there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

Esau, son of Isaac married Mahalath,
Daughter of Ishmael.
Gen 28:9
9 so Esau went unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives that he had Mahalath the daughter ofIshmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebaioth, to be his wife. 

Moses (pbuh) married Zipporah from descendants of Keturah
Exodus 4:15-21
18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in- law, and said unto him: 'Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren that are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive.' And Jethro said to Moses: 'Go in peace.'
19 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian: 'Go, return into Egypt; for all the men are dead that sought thy life.'
20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt; and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.
21 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'When thou goest back to Egypt, see that thou do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in thy hand; but I will harden his heart, and he will not let the people go.

All Nations of the world were blessed only through the descendents of Ishmael for all times.
Gen 12:1-3, Gen 18:18,19 
1 Now the LORD said unto Abram: 'Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto the land that I will show thee.
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing,
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.'

Genesis 18:18,19

18 seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
19 For I have known him, to the end that he may command his children and his household after him, that they may keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice; to the end that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which He hath spoken of him.'

The great sacrifice by all the family
of Abraham brought a fruit
Genesis 21:5-8 and
Genesis 17:15-20

Genesis 21: 5-8

5 And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. 
6 And Sarah said: 'God hath made laughter for me; everyone that heareth will laugh on account of me.'
7 And she said: 'Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should give children suck? for I have borne him a son in his old age.'
8 And th   e child grew, and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. 

Genesis 17: 15-20 
15 And God said unto Abraham: 'As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. 
16 And I will bless her, and moreover I will give thee a son of her; yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be of her.'
17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart: 'Shall a child be born unto him that is a hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?'
18 And Abraham said unto God: 'Oh that Ishmael might live before Thee!'
19 And God said: 'Nay, but Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son; and thou shalt call his name Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. 
20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee; behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 

God blessed all of the Prophets in Abraham's family Sura 11: 71-76.

Sura 11

71. And his wife was standing (there), and she laughed: But we gave her glad tidings of Isaac, and after him, of Jacob. 72. She said: "Alas for me! shall I bear a child, seeing I am an old woman, and my husband here is an old man? That would indeed be a wonderful thing!" 73. They said: "Dost thou wonder at Allah’s decree? The grace of Allah and His blessings on you, O ye people of the house! for He is indeed worthy of all praise, full of all glory!"74. When fear had passed from (the mind of) Abraham and the glad tidings had reached him, he began to plead with us for Lut's people. 75. For Abraham was, without doubt, forbearing (of faults), compassionate, and given to look to Allah. 76. O Abraham! Seek not this. The decree of thy Lord hath gone forth: for them there cometh a penalty that cannot be turned back!

The Qur'an mentions the sacrifice of Abraham for the sake of Allah.
Sura 37: 79-113.

Sura 37

79. "Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!" 80. Thus indeed do we reward those who do right. 81. For he was one of our believing Servants. 82. Then the rest we overwhelmed in the Flood. 83. Verily among those who followed his Way was Abraham. 84. Behold! he approached his Lord with a sound heart. 85. Behold! he said to his father and to his people, "What is that which ye worship? 86. "Is it a falsehood- gods other than Allah. that ye desire? 87. "Then what is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?" 88. Then did he cast a glance at the Stars. 89. And he said, "I am indeed sick (at heart)!" 90. So they turned away from him, and departed. 91. Then did he turn to their gods and said, "will ye not eat (ofthe offerings before you)? .. 92. "What is the matter with you that ye speak not (intelligently)?" 93. Then did he turn upon them, striking (them) with the right hand. 94. Then came (the worshippers) with hurried steps, and faced (him). 95. He said: "Worship ye that which ye have (yourselves) carved? 96."But Allah has created you and your handwork!" 97. They said, "Build him a furnace, and throw him into the blazing tire!" 98. (This failing), they then sought a stratagem against him, but We made them the ones most humiliated! 99. He said: "I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me! 100. "O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!" 101. So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear. 102. Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if Allah so wills one practising Patience and Constancy!" 103. So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah., and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice), 104. We called out to him "O Abraham! 105. "Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" - thus indeed do We reward those who do right. 106. For this was obviously a trial- 107. And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice: 108. And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times: 109. "Peace and salutation to Abraham!" 110. Thus indeed do We reward those who do right. 111. For he was one of our believing Servants. 112. And We gave him the good news ofIsaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous. 113. We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.

The Sacrficed Son of Abraham (PBUH)

2 Vayomer kach-na et-bincha et-yechidecha asher-ahavta et-Yitzchak velech-lecha el-eretz haMoriyah veha'alehu sham le'olah al achad heharim asher omar eleicha.

He said, "Please take your son, your only one, who you love - Yitzchak - and go to the land of Moriyah. Sacrifice him as a burnt-offering on one of the mountains which I will designate to you."

Genesis 22:2

فان الله سبحانه وتعالى خاطب ابراهيم ( عليه السلام ) قائلا باللسان العبراني:

قاح اث بنخا اث يحيذخا أشار اهاب

تفسير ذلك: خذ ابنك الذي أحببته وقربه لي قربانا

وهذه الآية تدل على أن الذبيح هو اسماعيل عليه السلام من نص التوراة لأنه ما كان لابراهيم وحيد الا اسماعيل..


النص المكتوب بالعربية هو للتوراة العبرية وكذا الترجمة العربية والتعليق هي كلها مما أورده العالم اليهودي الذي أسلم وهو سعيد بن حسن الأسكندراني
في كتابه: مسالك النظر في نبوة سيد البشر

Said ibn Hasan El Eskandarany ( of Alexandria, Egypt ) said commenting on this verse:

The explanation is:

Take your son, that you have loved, and offer him as a sacrifice for me..

But this verse is a proof from the text of the Torah, that the Sacrificed Son is Ishmael PBUH, for Abraham had not an " only one " except Ishmael..

This is yet another Biblical discrepancy, a contradiction represented in considering God's order to Abraham to sacrifice his son to be fulfilled in Isaac..

God's Order to Abraham is explicit in the Hebrew text, where it says:

kach-na et-bincha et-yechidecha asher-ahavta et..

take your son, your only one, who you love..

This just couldn't be so..Simply because Abraham had two sons
Ishmael and Isaac..It is stated in the Bible that Ishmael is Abraham's firstborn...
So when God ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son his ( et-yechidecha ) "only one", then this order must have been, before Isaac was born, God couldn't have been mistaken in referring to Isaac as Abraham's " only one ", when Ishmael was already his firstborn..

Then the name -Yitzchak which is Hebrew for a obviously a later addition by the Rabbis and Scribes and should be refuted as a shameless, blatant insertion and a debunked interpolation..


The United States of America  being one of the greatest countries built by the greatest founders that established a great system of law from the greatest teachers including the greatest of teachers--Muhammad. This country exalted his name by including his image in one of the greatest places--the Supreme Court. The greatest kings of his time glorified him, for example the Christian King of Abyssinia, the Jewish king of Yemen, and all the Christian Arab kings followed him regardless of him not being royalty and only by his letter. This letter was not imposing by force nor by threat. These kings followed and believed him because of the proof of their Holy Scriptures (Torah and Gospel). An example of these instances was with the Coptic King of Egypt. He exalted Muhammad (peace be upon him) by offering him the best of what he had--the daughter of a priest (Maria) to become a servant/slave for Muhammad, but rather, Muhammad glorified this gift and honored the king by marrying Maria instead of making her a slave. This story circulates back to the greatest grandfather--Abraham (peace be upon him). ******In reference to Gen 20:6-8, the king of Egypt, to satisfy Abraham and Sarah and please God, he offered Abraham the princess, Hajar, to become his slave. Similarly, Abraham glorified his gift and had her become his wife as mentioned in Gen 16: 3. Because Abraham migrated from Ur (Iraq)Gen15:7. to the Palestinian wilderness, he owned nothing but his own tent. He bought a well for seven sheep and that location in the wilderness of Palestine became named Beir Saba' (Seven sheep)Gen21:29-34,22:9,26:33-34. All his children including Isaac and Jacob lived in this location without ever owning anything. They all moved to Egypt because of good living according to Gen 46. There, they lived as slaves Gen15: 13-17. When they lived Palestine, they did not own any of it. When they lived in Egypt, they did not own any of it. When they lived by the Euphrates, they did not own any of it, as well. Only through Abraham (peace be upon him), all nations will be blessed Gen 12:2-3 and 18:18-19. Muhammad (Shiloh) in Gen 49:10 was the first and only to unite the ten tribes between the Euphrates and the Nile in Gen 15: 18-21. And all of the relatives of Abraham (maternal and paternal and direct offspring) are all recognized today as Muslims which include these ten tribes and the six children of Keturah, the third wife of Abraham (peace be upon him) as mentioned in Gen 25: 1-4. And the ten lost Israeli tribes, Habakook 3: 7, are now situation in present day Afghanistan. The followers of Muhammad today count from 1.5 billion from various nations, tribes, colors, races, from all over the world. The golden time of the relationship between Jews and Muslims was during Islamic Spain (Andalusia). The children of Levi migrated to the Arabian Peninsula awaiting a prophet from Arabia as mentioned in Isaiah 21: 13-17 and the only unlettered prophet as stated in Isaiah 29: 11-12 and his name being Mahmad as in Hagai 2: 6-9. They were waiting for the prophet that would establish the Kindom of God as in Daniel 2: 44, and with him will be ten thousand saints to open Makka in 630 A.D. Det 33:2 and this prophet will be coming from Mekka as mentioned in Psalms 84:1-7. They were looking for the prophet that would establish a pure society that had never been established before in Isaiah 42: 1-21. He was the only one that was offered the highest of gifts, royalty, wealth, and other various worldly temptations, and yet, he rejected them all. He did not differ from the prophets before him, he was also a shepard and easily rejected worldly temptations and died peacefully and poor leaving behind teachings and the Quran. 

For anyone that would like to learn more about him, the resources are endless and available considering he was one of the greatest teachers in the world. Thank for your time.

"The Prophet Muhammad the Last Messanger in the Bible" by Kais Al-Kalby AMUSLIMMI@YAHOO.COM TEL: 734-369-8100
Read from below short passage from jewish website not a muslim/Islamic website to know that Hagar was a Egyptian princess gifted by Pharoah to Abraham PBUH HAGAR - One of the most interesting women in the Bible is Hagar, Abraham's second wife, and the mother of Ishmael. The Arab and Bedouin tribes claim to be descendants of Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Hagar. According to the Midrash, Hagar was the daughter of King Pharaoh of Egypt. When she saw the miracle which G-d performed for the sake of Sarah, to save her from the hands of the Egyptian king during Abraham's visit there, she said: "It is better to be a slave in Sarah's house than a princess in my own." Her name "Hagar," according to the Midrash, stems from this beginning of her association with Abraham's house. It comes from "Ha-Agar," meaning this is the reward. Hagar became Sarah's Maid, but when Sarah was not blessed with children, she persuaded Abraham to take Hagar as his second wife. Sarah hoped that she could bring up Hagar's children and merit G-d's blessing that way, so that she, too, perhaps might be blessed with a child. Abraham took Sarah's advice and married Hagar.
Further, reference In the narrative in Gen. 12:10–20, when Abraham and Sarah went down to Egypt, Sarah was taken to the house of Pharaoh. In response, the Lord afflicted Pharaoh and all his household with mighty plagues. When, in the midrashic amplification, Pharaoh sees the miracles that were performed for Sarah in his house, he gives her his daughter Hagar as a handmaiden. He said: “It would be better for my daughter to be a handmaiden in this house [i.e., Sarah’s] than a noblewoman in another [in the palace in Egypt].” The Rabbis offer an etymological explanation of Hagar’s name: Pharaoh said to Sarah, “This is your reward [agrekh],” as he gave her his daughter as a handmaiden (Gen. Rabbah 45:1).

GENESIS 13: 15-17.

Jacton son of Eber; his descendants lived throughout Arabia before the time of Prophet Abraham (pbuh), Gen 10:25.

Abraham (pbuh) was promised by God that wherever he walks that land would be given to his seed forever, (Ishmael and Isaac and the others from his third wife Keturah).

One day they will own these lands. It is important to note that God's promise to Abraham for thousands of years was not yet fulfilled.

The descendants of the third wife (Keturah) of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) also lived and are still living in Arabia, Gen 25:1-4. They were never under the rule of the sons of Prophet Isaac (Israel), but always under the rule of Prophet Ishmael and his children. They never immigrated out of the Arabian region. The children of Isaac (Israel) either lived in Palestine or in other lands, depending on the circumstauces. Gen 15:13-16.

The prophets/kings David and his son, Solomon (pbuh) fulfilled God's promise for their people to enter (Palestine).

This is the promise that God made to Moses (pbuh), to lead his people from Egypt to Palestine. The people of Moses (pbuh) wandered in the Sinai Desert for 40 years because they had not obeyed God's order to enter the promised land, Sura 5:20-26. The people of Moses feared the Palestinians and would not enter. David's generation did surrender to God's will and were allowed to enter the Promised Land. With surrender to God's will, they were chosen to live in the Holy Land as long as they continued to surrender to God's will, Gen 15:16. When they again disobeyed God, the Babylonians conquered the Israelis and took them as slaves out of Palestine to Iraq.
King Corsh (Cyrus) of Persia, after 70 years regained control, of Palestine. He brought the children of Isaac (sons of Israel) back to Palestine, but they were never allowed to rule Palestine.
King Corsh knew the children of Israel had no right to rule Palestine since God's promise to them was already fulfilled through Prophet David as in Genesis 15:13-16. God's promise to the children of Israel was to let them live in Amorites a small area in Palestine, not to own, not to rule, control, or extend their authority over Palestine.

God allowed the Prophets Davis, Solomon, and their descendants who worshipped God, to be the rulers of Palestine.

When the children of Israel became corrupt, other nations, even nations of atheists were allowed to rule Palestine. The Palestinians accepted the rule of the Prophets David and Solomon (pbuh) because they were just and honorable and never expelled the Palestinians from their land. These Israeli prophets and rulers never tried to replace the Palestinians and expel them from their land.

The Roman Christian and the Crusaders who ruled Palestine always disrupt and expelled the Israelis from Palestine. In 315 A.D, when the Romans converted to Christianity, they expelled and even killed many Jews in Palestine. In 638 A.D. the Arab Christians asked the Muslims to expel the Jews from Palestine, because the Arab Christians knew that the Muslims had the right to have Palestine (Zechariah 9:9-10). Again during the 11th century, thc Crusaders tortured the Jews and expelled them from Palestine. All these foreign rulers knew that the only time the Israelis were authorized by God to rule Palestine was during the time of the Prophets Davis and Solomon (pbuh). This prophecy has been fulfilled and, therefore, the Israelis have no current or future ights to own or rule Palestine (Genesis 15:13-17) though the Israel is have now force fully occupied all of Palestine through political pressure of western and other government nations.

The Israelis were tortured and expelled from Palestine by the Roman Christian Empire after 300 A.D. and later by the crusades in the 11th century. During their expulsion; they spread throughout in the Islamic state in Spain (Alandalus), Iraq, and Turkey. They preferred to live under Islamic rule, because they were treated well.

The land promised to Abraham (pbuh) by God from the Euphrates to the Nile comprises the area presently by Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan and Palestine, Gen 15:18-21. even during the time of Jesus (pbuh) all this land had yet to come under one people, one religion and one language. During those times, different nations and kingdoms (Romans, Persians, Egyptians, etc.) ruled these lands. Still, God's promise to Abraham (pbuh) was not yet fulfilled, as in Gen 15:18-21. Finally, the land promised to Abraham's seed came under one rule. This great event (638 A.D) occurred under the rule of Muhammad (pbuh), a prophet of God and a descendent (seed) of Abraham (pbuh) through Ishmael. Muhammad (pbuh) is for all people while Moses, Davis, Solomon and Jesus (pbuh) are prophets sent to Israel and were from the seed (descendants) of Isaac (pbuh).

Joctan son of Eber, had descendants that lived throughout Arabia before the time Prophet Abraham(pbuh)
Genesis 10:25
25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

Prophet Abraham (pbuh) walks in the Middle East (Arab Region).
Gen 13: 15-17.

15 for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth; so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for unto thee will I give it.'

The descendants of the third wife (Keturah) of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) also lived in Arabia. Always under the rule of Prophet Ishmael's children.
Gen 25: 1-4
1 And Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah.
2 And she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
3 And Jokshan begot Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
4 And the sons of Midian: Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah .

The people of Moses wandered in the Sinai desert for 40 years because they had not obeyed God's order to enter the promised land.
Sura 5: 20-26.

Sura 5
20. Remember Moses said to his people: "O my people! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you, when He produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave you what He had not given to any other among the peoples. 21. "O my people! Enter the holy Jand which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin." 22. They said: "O Moses! In this land are a people of exceeding strength: Never shall we enter it until they leave it: if (once) they leave, then shall we enter." 23. (But) among (their) Allah’s fearing men were two on whom Allah had bestowed His grace: They said: "Assault them at the (proper) Gate: when once ye are in, victory will be yours; But on Allah put your trust if ye have faith." 24. They said: "O Moses! while they remain there, never shall we be able to enter, to the end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord, and fight ye two, while we sit here (and watch)." 25. He said: "O my Lord! I have power only over myself and my brother: so separate us from this rebellious

GENESIS 15:1-7,
GENESIS 15:13-17 And
GENESIS 15:18-21.

God promised Abraham (pbuh) that wherever he traveled would belong to his descendants forever (Genesis 13: 15-17). When God made the promise to Abraham (pbuh), he had not yet fathered any children. Because or God's promise, Abraham (pbuh) wanted to adopt a son (Eliezer). So he would have a son to fulfill God's promise. God told Abraham (pbuh) that only a son born from his seed can have this honor, Genesis 15:1-5. The first born son of Abraham was Ishmael (pbut), (Genesis 16:1-16 and Genesis 17:20). God's promise was fulfilled through Muhammad (pbuh), who is a direct descendant of Ishmael (pbuh) Gen 15:18-21.

In Genesis 15:13-16, God tells Abraham (pbuh) the descendants of his second son Isaac (pbuh) will be held by Egypt in slavery for 400 years. The verses 13-16 do not mention any name but, historically, it is proved that this happened through Jacob (Israel) son of Isaac. This historical fact has been admitted by everyone.

The verse also states that this land will never be owned by Israelis. God told the Israelis, through Moses (pbuh), to leave Egypt. If Egypt was not part of the promise from the Euphrates to the Nile that God promised Abraham, God would have given the Israelis the authority to stay there.

History has shown LIS that God's promise has been fulfilled. Moses (pbuh) will lead the Israelis out of Egypt. He led the Israelis out of Egypt but he never entered the promised land, Amorites, a small piece of land in Palestine. This did not happen until the leadership of Prophet David, when the Israelis finally followed the word of God and entered Palestine.

In verse 16, God tells the Israelis that they can live in this area in Palestine where the Amorites people live. (See map). Genesis 15:19-21, lists the names of the tribes who lived in the promised land from the Euphrates to the Nile. The third wife of Abraham (pbuh), Keturah (Gen 25:14), was an Arab from one of these tribes, and her descendants mixed with the other tribes in the area. Keturah was not a slave. Her descendants were ruled by the children of Ishmael (pbuh). They never left the area and were never under the rule of the children of Isaac.

Even Moses (pbuh) married Zipporah, the daughter of a preacher of Median, Exo 4:25 who was a descendant of the fourth son of Keturah named Median, after whom the area was named. All the maps clearly show the area of Median and it is still called Median. Median was the place from which the prophet Shuaib rose.

In Gen 15:19-21, there were 10 tribes scattered throughout the land where Prophet Abraham (pbuh) walked, beside his six children from Keturah and the children of Ishmael. Many of the cities that they built still exist. The promise of God has been fulfilled through Prophet Muhammad (pbub) a descendent of Prophet Ishmael in Gen 15:18-21. Gen 15:13-16 show that God's promise to Abraham (pbuh) is partly fulfilled through the descendants of Isaac, the children of Israel.

In Gen 15:18-21, God tells Abraham (pbuh) that his descendants shall be given the land (Arabia) between the river of the Nile (Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan) and the river Euphrates (Iraq, Turkey, Syria). Again, history has shown this promise to be fulfilled through Ishmael by Muhammad (pbuh), The Israelis always tried to live in Palestine. There were ten nations between the Euphrates and the Nile who were not the children of Abraham, nor were they Jewish, They became one nation through Muhammad in 638 A.D. God never said that the Arabs are strangers to this land or slaves to any nation, thereby giving it to them forever.

In Deuteronomy 34:1-5, we again see a strong proof of which land was promised by God to the children of Israel. God showed Prophet Moses (pbuh) the land promised to the children of Isaac and Jacob. The lands described are within the bounds of Palestine, not all the land between the Euphrates and the Nile rivers. The land from the Euphrates to the Nile Rivers were clearly given to the descendants of Ishmael as is stated in Genesis 15:18-21. History has shown us that the land shown to Moses in Palestine and God's promise was fulfilled through Prophet David (pbuh). We also see that God's promise to the descendants of Prophet Ishmael (pbuh) was fulfilled when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions ruled all the land between the Nile and Euphrates Rivers (638 A.D.), because God had promised Abraham (pbuh) the land to his seed between the river Euphrates and the Nile. And they put an end to all the Empires in the region viz. Romans, Persian, Babylonia and Egyptians, etc. as mentioned in Daniel 2:44.

God promised Abraham the land between the river Euphrates and the Nile, Gen 15:19-21. During the time of Abraham (pbuh), this land consisted of ten nations. Along with six tribes who were from the children of Keturah, the third wife of Abraham. This land was divided by different governments, languages, and religions until the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Then, this promised land was united under one language (Arabic) and one religion (Islam) and one rule (the Islamic State). None of this land was ever promised to the descendants of Isaac.

God's promise was fulfilled in 638 A.D., when under the rule of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) these ten nations were united under the flag of Islam. Under the law of inheritance, the first born son is given more than any of the other children (Deuteronomy 21:15-16).

This final covenant gives Palestine to the descendants of Ishmael and expects the descendants of Isaac to be under the rule of Ishmael's children. The rule of God came through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and the children of Israel have the right to live anywhere under the nation of Islam. They have not been given the right to a separate nation inside the region that was promised to the descendants of Prophet Ishmael (pbuh).

Many rulers expelled the Jews from Palestine or the Jews left by their choices, but Muslim leaders have never expelled the children of Israel from this land.

All the land from the Nile to the Euphrates including Palestine came under the rule of Islam to fulfill the promise as in Gen 15:18-21, and all other people viz. Christian, Jews could live under that Muslim State, but could never claim the right to rule any part of it.

In Gen 15:7, it is stated that God brought Abraham out from Ur (Iraq) in order to give this land to him to inherit it. History shows that Abraham never returned to Ur and had no control over its lands. He lived in Palestine with his first wife Sarah, and later in Median with his third wife Keturah. Several times he visited his second wife Hagar and his son Ishmael in Makkah. It is obvious that Isaac and his children, and Keturahs sons never had the chance to inherit Ur. The descendants of Isaac (Israelis), remained slaves in Egypt for four hundred years, (Gen 15:13-17), after the death of Prophet Yousaf (Joseph). They remained under the strict rule of Pharaohs, (Kings of Egypt). In the times of Ramses II and III they were tortured and were treated inhumanly. Their sons were slaughtered but their daughters were allowed to live. It was only in the time of Moses (pbuh) they were rescued and taken to Sinai Desert. Later they were enslaved in Ur, Iraq by the Babylonians when they captured Palestine and destroyed the two separate kingdoms of Israel, where they and their ancestors ruled fix about two hundred years. Thus, the Israelis never inherited Ur, or to say, the Euphrates of Iraq. As said earlier, they remained slaves in Egypt thus they never controlled the Nile either. And so, Israel has no right whatsoever to say that all lands from the Nile to the Euphrates belong to them. In fact there never was a verse in the Bible saying anything about an Israel State from the Nile to the Euphrates. It was the right of the (children of Kedar) the second son of Ishmael, Gen 25:13-17, who in the time of his descendant, Prophet Muhammad and his companions would rule all this area from the Nile to the Euphrates, including Ur, and forever. Thus, the promise as in Gen 15:7 to Abraham was fulfilled, not through the descendants of Isaac, but through the descendants of Ishmael (pbuh), The Israelis therefore have no right to rule any of the said area and never Palestine, itself, which was part of the state from the Nile to the Euphrates formed by descendants of Ishmael.

The Kingdom of Israel which was ruled by the Prophets David and Solomon (pbut) remained in Palestine, which was supported by God. This Kingdom was on the right path and had a good chance to rule this land (from the Euphrates to the Nile); especially since they were in control of Yemen. They always made pilgrimage to Makkah and no one opposed them. But this land was promised by God to Prophet Muhammad and their respect for him would not allow them to claim any part of that land. This kingdom was divided into two kingdoms and was only within the bounds of Palestine for about two hundred years. What happened to them is known through history, that they were expelled and tortured by the Babylonians, the Romans and others.

The Islamic State which included all the lands from the Nile to the Euphrates and the areas where the descendants of Prophet Lot (pbuh) lived; and other nations including the Israelis in the surrounding lands, were allowed to live like any other citizens, and free to practice their own religion. We all are to believe in Allah, Christians, Muslims or Jews, and we all have to obey God (Allah) and have to accept the fact of history that this state from the Nile to the Euphrates was formed by the children of Ishmael through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions and it belongs to them. The promise to Abraham (pbuh) as in Gen 15:7 was fulfilled.

The Arab Christians believed and supported Muslims in that this area from the Nile to the Euphrates including Palestine belongs to the children of Ishmael (the followers of Muhammad (pbuh)). Let us accept the fact; even if it is against our desire.

Prophet Abraham (pbuh) wanted to adopt a son (Eliezer). God told him that only a son born from his seed can fulfill God's promise.
Genesis 15:1-5.

1 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying,: ‘Fear not, Abram, I am thy shield, thy reward shall be exceeding great.’
2 And Abram said: 'O Lord GOD, what wilt Thou give me, seeing I go hence childless, and he that shall be possessor of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?'
3 And Abram said: 'Behold, to me Thou hast given no seed, and, lo, one born in my house is to be mine heir.' 
4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying: 'This man shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.'
5 And He brought him forth abroad, and said: 'Look now toward heaven, and count the stars, if thou be able to count them'; and He said unto him: 'So shall thy seed be.'
6 And he believed in the LORD; and He counted it to him for righteousness.
7 And He said unto him: 'I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.'

God tells Abraham the descendants of his son (Isaac) will be held by Egypt in slavery for 400 years and God tells the Israelis that they can live in the area of Palestine where the Amorites people live.
Gen 15:13-17.
13 And He said unto Abram: 'Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
14 and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge; and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15 But thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
16 And in the fourth generation they shall come back hither; for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full.'
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and there was thick darkness, behold a smoking furnace, and a flaming torch that passed between these pieces.

The land shown to Prophet Mosses (pbuh) is within the bounds of Palestine and God's promise was fulfilled through Prophet David (pbuh)
Deut. 34: 1-5
1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the LORD showed him all the land, even Gilead as far as Dan;
2 and all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah as far as the hinder sea;
3 and the South, and the Plain, even the valley of Jericho the city of palm-trees, as far as Zoar.
4 And the LORD said unto him: 'This is the land which I swore unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying: I will give it unto thy seed; I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.'
5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

God tells the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) that his descendants shall be given the land (Arabia) between the river of the Nile (Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt etc.) and the river Euphrates, including the Amorite land. That promise was fulfilled through Prophet Muhammad in 638 A.D.
Gen 15:18-21.

18 In that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: 'Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates; 
19 the Kenite, and the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite,
20 and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Rephaim,
21 and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Girgashite, and the Jebusite.’

the law of Inheritance the firstborn son was given more than any of the other children of Abraham. This final covenant gives Palestine to the descendants of Ishmael. The rule of God came through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Deut 21: 15-17.

15 If a man have two wives, the one beloved, and the other hated, and they have borne him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the first-born son be hers that was hated;
 16 then it shall be, in the day that he causeth his sons to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved the first-born before the son of the hated, who is the first-born;
17 but he shall acknowledge the first-born, the son of the hated, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath; for he is the first-fruits of his strength, the right of the first-born is his.

In the Qur'an, God told the Israelis through Moses to leave Egypt and Moses led them, but never entered the promised land, Palestine, and they wandered in Sinai desert for 40 years.
Sura 5:20-26.

Sura 5

20. Remember Moses said to his people: "0 my people! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you, when He produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave you what He had not given to any other among the peoples. 21. "0 my people! Enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiollsly, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin." 22. They said: "0 Moses! In this land are a people of exceeding strength: Never shall we enter it until they leave it: if (once) they leave, then shall we enter." 23. (But) among (their) Allah.fearing men were two on whom Allah had bestowed His grace: They said: "Assault them at the (proper) Gate: when once ye are in, victory will be yours; But on Allah put your trust if ye have faith." 24. They said: "0 Moses! while they remain there, never shall we be able to enter, to the end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord, and fight ye two, while we sit here (and watch)." 25. He said: "0 my Lord! I have power only over myself and my brother: so separate us from this rebellious people!" 26. Allah said: "Therefore will the land be out of their reach for forty years: In distraction will they wander through the land: But sorrow thou not over these rebellious people.

GENESIS 17:19-20

In verse 19, it is stated that Abraham will get a son from Sarah (Isaac), "God will establish covenant with him (Isaac) for an everlasting covenant and with his seed after him." Covenant means a solemn agreement or a contract. The Old and new Testaments of the Bible means: God's promises to man. In this particular case it means Prophet Abraham and his sons Ishmael, Isaac (pbuh) and the other six sons of Abraham.
In Gen 17:7 when God said "And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and in thy seed and after thee in their generations for all an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee." God meant there will be prophet from all the sons of Abraham, from all the three wives. This clearly shows the belief that "Yahweh" (God) is only meant for the Israel children is incorrect; it clearly means God is for all the children of Abraham (pbuh). In verse 8, when God says, "And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God." In verse 18 "Abraham stated unto God that Ishmael might live before thee." To fulfill these covenants.

Until this time Isaac (pbuh) was not born yet. It was only a promise of Allah as in verse 16 and 17 that will bear a son from Sarah. In verse 19, Allah clearly told Abraham that Sarah although she was 90 years old and he 100 years old will get a child to be named Isaac and God will make covenant with him, an everlasting covenant and with his seed afterwards.

In General it will be seen that the followings were the main covenant of God with the seed of Abraham;
1. Worshipping Allah (God) only.
2.To accept and follow all the Prophets.
3.To spread the religion; the word of Allah
4.Provided they carry out 1-3 mentioned above, they will have the land from the Nile to the Euphrates (Including Canaan land, Palestine).

Safa and Marwah. Hagar, mother of Ishmael (pbuh) walked between these small mounts, seven times looking for water Gen 16:1-20. 

God had established covenant with Ishmael (verse7). The children of Ishmael were supposed to carry them out but worshipped other gods (Idols) beside Allah. Although, they were not sent any prophets in their time after Ishmael in their area, they were supposed to follow Abraham and Ishmael to believe in one and only one God. In the beginning they were on the right path, but later they worshipped idols beside Allah and thus, they were not worthy to have all the area promised by Allah to Abraham as in Gen 15:18-21.

Similarly the children of Isaac or the Israelis did not carry out all the covenant of Allah, though they believed in God as one. They did not accept all the prophets neither follow them; rather they killed some, like Prophet Zechariah, John the Baptist and others. They did not obey Jesus either instead tried to kill him. They also restricted the religion to themselves, and did not spread it to other people even their brethren (children of Ishmael) and children of Keturah as required under the covenant. Thus, they were not worthy to rule the promised land either. Rather they were destroyed by Allah and were expelled from the area and scattered all over the world. As for Keturah's descendants, they were not worthy either for the same reason, neither were the children or Ishmael before Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The right time had come for the promised prophet and the last to rise by Allah from the seed of Ishmael in Holy Baca (Makkah), land of Arabia Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He carried out the covenant of Allah and his companions and followers faithfully followed him to spread the words of Allah all over the promised land and beyond. Thus, they were given and ruled the promised land from the Nile to the Euphrates including Canaan (Palestine as in Gen.15:18-21), which they deserved and until today still maintain. Today, Israel occupies Palestine through political and other supports of Christian and atheist governments, but will not be able to maintain this for long and their dream of a greater Israel will never be fulfilled.
To conclude, as in verse 19, God had established a covenant with the children of Isaac, the everlasting covenant, which the Israelis, who claim to be the descendants of Isaac, are supposed to carry out in full. They believed in one God but did not accept all the prophets, rather killed some of them. Not only did they not spread the words of Allah, but changed them from their right places and forgot a good part of the message that was sent to them. For those reasons the prophethood ended in their line and was given to another line (their brethren, the children of Ishmael). When the last Prophet of Allah (Muhammad) came, the Jews did not accept him, rather opposed him and his followers even until today. Unless they obey the covenant of Allah, they will not nourish. They can be rescued only if they follow the last Messenger and Prophet of God (Allah); the last Messenger in the Bible, Muhammad (pbuh) otherwise, they will perish. They would be doomed forever unless they accept and believe the Prophets Zechariah, John the Baptist (Yahya), Jesus, and the last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and embrace Islam and become true Muslims.

God promises that He will make Ishmael (pbuh) fruitful and his descendants. Sura 19:54-55 God will bless Ishmael (pbuh) with 12 princes and make a great nation of Ishmael's (pbuh) seed. History has shown this promise had been fulfilled. The places where the seed of Ishmael (pbuh) shall live (Makkah and medina) have never come under any foreign power. These areas have always been independent. Sura 106:1-4. Allah supported Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to make one nation from the Euphrates to the Nile as promised by God in Genesis 15:18-21. All the Bible maps show the areas where they lived. The children of Ishmael (phuh) scattered throughout Arabia, as shown in the Bible verses and maps. They started in Sinai and south of Palestine, and then to southern Syria, southern Iraq, and western Iran (Arabistan tribe of Bani Kaib)

During the early days of the Islamic movement the children or Ishmael moved into other areas (Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, and Libya) to spread Islam. They intermarried with all the people of these new areas. Today most of these people are considered the children of Ishmael. The area from the Atlantic ocean to the Arabian Gulf contain the children of Ishmael. God's promise to Abraham (pbuh) that his children will inherit the land from the Euphrates to the Nile river has been fulfilled (Genesis 15:18-21). In Genesis 17:20, God promises that Ishmael (pbuh) will have twelve princes. If Ishmael's sons are princes then he must be a king. God also says he will make him a great nation. The descendants of Prophet Ishmael (pbuh) will continue to be princes since God has called them princes from the beginning. History has shown us that the children of Ishmael have never been under the rule of other nations.

The reason that Allah ordered Abraham to take his son Ishmael (pbuh) to a land which did not belong to anyone (Hejaz which was a wilderness at that time) and to let him be the ruler of this area and his children would be princes. Allah selected this desert for Ishmael and his children so as not to create any attraction for the Romans, Persians or others, and would be independent and not under any kind of influence. When Islam came, the Children of Ishmael embraced it with purity, because they were never under any influence of other religions, nations, or cultures, unlike other religions such as Christianity and Judaism.

If Ishmael's sons are Princes then he must be a King. Gen. 17: 19-20
19 And God said: 'Nay, but Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son; and thou shalt call his name Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him.
 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee; behold, I have
blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

Prophet Ishmael was fruitful as mentioned in the Quran.
Sura 19: 54-55.
Sura 19
54. Also mention in the Book (the story of) Isma'il: He was (strictly) true to what he promised, and he was an apostle (and) a prophet. 
55. He used to enjoin on his people Prayer and Charity, and he was most acceptable in the sight of his Lord.

The places where the seed of Prophet Ishmael shall live (Makkah) has never come under any foreign power and has always remained independent.
Sura 106: 1-4.
1. For the covenants (of security and safeguard enjoyed) by the Quraish, 
2. Their covenants (covering) journeys by winter and sumrner.- 
3. Let them adore the Lord of this House, 
4. Who provides them with food against hunger, and with security against fear (of danger),

GENESIS 25: 13-18.

This chapter tells of the cities in the promised land that will bear the names of the children of Ishmael (pbuh). The cities started in Arabia and most of them still exist. The first born son of Ishmael (pbuh) was Nebajoth, who later settled in Medina, and the second son was Kedar who settled in Makkah, Sura 42:7. The descendants of Kedar are called the Quraish, (Tittle (Fihr Ibn Malik) 9th grandfather of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh))and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is a direct descendant of Kedar. Quthum, the grandson of Kedar, ruled the area from Shur Sinai to Havilah during the time of David, Gen 25:18. The children of Kedar worshipped God and followed the teachings of Abraham (pbuh) during this time.

In Genesis 25: 18, the Bible states that Prophet Ishmael (pbuh) died in Havilah in the presence of his brethren. The brethren mentioned here refer to the children of Keturah, the third wife of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) (see maps for locations of these areas). In verse17, the Bible states that Ishmael (pbuh) "died and was gathered unto his people," which means he was their king. Prophet Ishmael (pbuh) died in Makkah, Sura 14:35-37.

Verse 18 shows the children of Ishmael lived, in Shur Sinai to Havilah, the Arabian Peninsula as in the Bible's maps, and they were never expelled or thrown out from their lands. The children of Ishmael were promised by God to fulfill the contents of Gen 15:18-21. Through Prophet Muhammad they united the land from the Nile to the Euphrates.

The second son of Ishmael was Kedar who settled in Makkah. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a direct descendant of Kedar.
Gen 25: 12-18.

12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bore unto Abraham.
13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the first-born of Ishmael, Nebaioth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
14 and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa; 
15 Hadad, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedem; 
16 these are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their villages, and by their encampments; twelve princes according to their nations.
17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty and seven years; and he expired and died; and was gathered unto his people.
18 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Asshur: over before all his brethren he did settle .

The second son of Ishmael was Kedar who settled in Makkah and Prophet Muhammad was his descendant.
Sura 42:7 .
7. Thus have We sent by inspiration to thee an Arabic Qur'an: that thou mayest warn the Mother of Cities and all around her,- and warn (them) of the Day of Assembly, of which there is no doubt: (when) some will be in the Garden, and some in the Blazing Fire.

Prophet Ishmael lived and died in Makkah . Sura 14: 35-37.
Sura 14
35. Remember Abraham said: "O my Lord! make this city one of peace and security: and preserve me and my sons from worshipping idols. 36. "O my Lord! they have indeed led astray many among mankind; He then who follows my (ways) is of me, and he that disobeys me,- but Thou art indeed Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful. 37. "O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in a valley without cultivation, by Thy Sacred House; in order, O our Lord, that they may establish regular Prayer: so fill the hearts of some among men with love towards them, and feed them with fruits: so that they may give thanks.


"Israel" is another name for "Jacob". The same name in Arabic is "Abdullah", which means "Servant of God".
Jacob (pbuh) in a conversation with his sons tells Judah31 that the prophethood will go to his descendants and will remain with his descendants and will remain with his descendants for many generations. This includes Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Eventually, the scepter of prophet hood will go to Shiloh, and all the people will gather around Shiloh, Sura 2: 133. Shiloh is mentioned only twice in the Bible, once as a place and in this chapter as a person which means the Messenger of Allah (Rassol Allah). In Hebrew, Shiloh from Shiluakh means "very important messenger". Genesis 49:10 states that the scepter will go to the messenger who will receive a new law.

Shiloh has power in his own time to renew and establish a kingdom, and this kingdom is forever (Islam). Shiloh has military forces, Daniel 2:44, Mathew 21 :43.

Shiloh is not from the descendants of Judah, but still from the descendants of Abraham (Ishmael) Gen 17:20. Prophet Muhammad spread God's word under Islamic law to unite the nations. All Muslims obeyed Muhammad (pbuh) with love and respect, but never raised him to God's equal. Because Qur'an is the word of God, not that of Muhammad, and he followed the word of God. Muhammad has never been worshipped.
If the Israelis denied that Muhammad is Shiloh, then either Shiloh came without notice, or Judah never existed. Shiloh will solve problems for all nations, not just for the Israelis. Muhammad is the only prophet to do this for all nations.

-Judah: Son of Jacob
-Juda Makapi: The leader of Jewish revolution against Romans in 165 B.C.
-Judas: a traitor; also was crucified instead of Prophet Jesus (pbuh).

The new law was meant to supersede the law that God had given in the past. Before Islam the laws of Moses (pbuh) were sent to the children of Israel to gather the Israeli tribes and guide them. The new laws sent to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were meant for all people and for all times. According to this verse, the new law is meant for all generations and to gather all the nations together. Islam came to the world at the correct time.

As is stated in the QURAN (Sura 2: 143), it was a time of balance among civilizations, cultures, and languages in the Middle East.

Once Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had proven to the people that the QURAN was the word of God, it served as proof for all the other prophets which came before him. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) served as the teacher for all generations that came after him. This is part of the balance mentioned in the QURAN.

This prophet will be for all people, not just for Israel.

Muhammad (pbuh) received a new through the QURAN and also gathered all the people of the land God promised to Abraham (pbuh) Genesis 15: 19-21, and Isaiah 43:9- I 2.

Prophet Jesus (pbuh) did not receive a new law, but followed and taught from the Book of teachings of Moses (pbuh), He also corrected and remembered what the children of Israel had lost. Jesus (pbuh) received authority from God to remove what had forbidden or what served as a penalty in the past.

The Jews say the Messiah will be a king and extend the kingdom of Israel from the Euphrates to the Nile. The Bible says the Messiah will be a king for the entire world, which is a fulfillment of the prophecy, Gen 15:18-21, to unite the land between the Euphrates and the Nile.

Jerusalem was not the center of religion for the ten tribes of Israel because the Jews were divided into two kingdoms.

Neither kingdom lasted forever, Each kingdom had its own prophets who did not fulfill this prophecy.


The word Dan is a verb, which in Arabic and Hebrew means to judge. Here, it means a Ruler. This verse is saying that Shiloh will judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel. This shows that Shiloh's people will not be from the children of Israel. The people ofIsrael had been sent many prophets.
This was the first time that the descendants of Ishmael (pbuh) had been honored by a prophet, who was Muhammad (pbuh).
This Ruler judged his people like any prophet or king from the Israel.
If we knew that Shiloh or ruler is outside from the children of Israel according to this verse, then it can not be outside from children of Ishmael because he was already blessed, Gen 17:20. His children will always be Princes. Then the Prince of the world in the Islamic Nation, (Dan or Shiloh) will be Prophet Muhammad.

EZEKIEL 21 (30)

Ezekiel says to the descendants of Israel, that they have become wicked and so the prophethood (scepter) will go away from them. The line of prophethood will go out from Israel. The promise made by God to Abraham (pbuh) was fulfilled when Muhammad (pbuh] became the prophet of God who was a descendent of Ishmael.

EZHEKIEL 21 (32)
Ezekiel says that after the ruining (the passing) of many generations, the prophethood will go to a person who has the right to it (Shiloh).
The children of Israel knew that the prophethood would be taken away from them when the last Prophet (Messiah) from their line was sent to them. And when his time came and they knew his time had arrived, they didn't know his name, only that he was called the Messiah. The children of Israel didn't recognize him and were confused of who he was. Therefore, they were not on the best of terms with him. At that time the Israeli society was corrupted and divided into two groups; the Pharisees and Sadducees. 

God raised Jesus the messiah from the Pharisees, and when they rejected him, the Sadducees automatically felt no obligation to him. And that's why John the Baptist described them as vipers, as in Matthew 3:7. They also knew of the promise that God had made to Abraham. Having understood this principle, the children of Israel (Levi) left their lush Palestine and immigrated to the barren desert of Madinah, there to await the coming of Prophet Muhammad, as mentioned in Gen. 49:10 and in Isaiah 21: 13-17. They did not want to lose their last chance, the last messenger for all nations, and they hurried to follow and support him (Muhammad), but they still hoped God would raise this prophet from them. The people of madinah readily accepted Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Islam because the children of Israel had told them of Muhammad's prophethood.

Shiloh will be for all people, not just for the children of Israel. Muhammad received (the Qur'an) a new law from God, to gather the people as in
Gen 15:19-21.

Genesis 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, as long as men come to Shiloh; and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.

The word Dan means a Ruler or a Judge and that Shiloh will judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel. That means Shiloh's people will not be from the children of Israel, but from the children of Ishmael (Prophet Muhammad),

49:16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

Ezekiel says to the descendants of Israel, that they have become wicked and so the prophethood (scepter) will go away from them to the person who has the right to it (Shiloh),
Ezekiel 21:30-32
Ezekiel 21:30 And thou, O wicked one, that art to be slain, the prince of Israel, whose day is come, in the time of the iniquity of the end;
Ezekiel 21:30 I thus saith the Lord GOD: The mitre shall be removed, and the crown taken off; this shall be no more the same: that which is low shall be exalted, and that which is high abased.
Ezekiel 21:32 A ruin, a ruin, a ruin, will I make it; this also shall be no more, until he come whose right it is, and I will give it him.

Jacob in a conversation with his sons, when death appeared before him.
Sura 2:133.
133. Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold, he said to his sons: "What will ye worship after me?" They said: "We shall worship Thy Allah and the Allah of thy fathers, of Abraham, Isma'il and lsaac,- the one (True) Allah. To Him we bow (in Islam)."

Islam came to the world at the correct time. It was a time of balance between civilization, culture, and language. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) served as the teacher for all generations which came after him as is stated in the Qur'an
Sura 2:143. Thus, have We made of you an Ummat justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger a witness over yourselves; and We appointed the Qibla to which thou wast used, only to test those who followed the Messenger from those who would turn on their heels (From the Faith). Indeed it was (A change) momentous, except to those guided by Allah. And never would Allah Make your faith of no effect. For Allah is to all people Most surely full of kindness, Most Merciful.
