Mary a Levite, then Jesus a Levite

The idea of Messiah comes from the Torah- which was written upon the Stone Tablets given to Musa (AS). In the Torah, the Messiah is the Kohen Gadol; a messiah is one anointed with the Oil of Anointing (Shemen haMishchah). This oil was entrusted to the Family of Harun (AS)- the First Kohen Gadol over Israel. No other person- aside from a direct descendant of Harun- may be in possession of or make the shemen hamishchah- on pains of death. The Torah stipulated very clearly that the oil may not be used upon the flesh of any other person than a descendant of Harun.

The first king over Israel was Musa (AS) and not Sha'ul- as many falsely claimed. The Torah stated expressly:

 תּוֹרָה צִוָּה-לָנוּ מֹשֶׁה מוֹרָשָׁה קְהִלַּת יַעֲקֹב
וַיְהִי בִישֻׁרוּן מֶלֶךְ בְּהִתְאַסֵּף רָאשֵׁי עָם יַחַד שִׁבְטֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל

Musa (AS) commanded us Torah- the inheritance of the congregation of Ya'aqub (AS); and he was king in Yeshurun when the heads of the people were gathered together- the united tribes of Israel.

Yeshurun is another name for Israel.

Allah commanded Musa (AS) to select Yehoshua ben Nun (AS) as his successor- he was the second of a long line of Shepherd Kings over Israel.

In the days of Eli and Shemuel (AS), Israel was in rebellion; the monarchy of the Israelite kings was a result of rebellion. There is no such thing as a Kingly Messiah in Torah. The prophet Yehezqel (AS) explained that in the end, the Israelite system would return to that of the Torah.

    • Some men do it voluntary to cover their hair out of piety, even when it is not necessary for them to wear it. It is not confused Sister, and He do say you need to cover your hair clearly. He clearly in verse make it obligatory to cover the hair but also the chest, because there used to be women who only covered their hair and not chest. to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands... Quran 24:31 Many people always focus on Physical aspect on Hijab, when the spiritual is the most important. We need to obey Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى if we claim ourselves to be Muslim in every commands He give us, if we do not do that, then we are obeying Shaytan and Shaytan will lead us to wrong path. Don't you want to be guided and follow Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى way?

      I understand. But i just don't understand the reasoning nor the justice as to why men dont have to cover their hair. Allah has written about hijab in such a confusing way. He doesnt say anywhere that you need to cover your hair, from what i have read. And people always use the "oh it protects you" argument. Which is a complete lie. Girls wearing hijab still get hit on.
    • أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Alif, Lam, Meem, Allah, there is no God but He, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all things subsist, Allah bears witness that there is no God but He, and so do the angels and those possessed of knowledge, maintaining His creation with justice; there is no god but He, the Mighty, the Wise, Whoever goes aright, for his own soul does he go aright; and whoever goes astray, to its detriment only does he go astray: nor can the bearer of a burden bear the burden of another, nor do We chastise until We raise a messenger, Whoever desires this present life, We hasten to him therein what We please for whomsoever We desire, then We assign to him the hell; he shall enter it despised, driven away, And whoever desires the hereafter and strives for it as he ought to strive and he is a believer; as for these, their striving shall surely be accepted,
    • I know your self hate it, you should ponder over yourself and your relation with God, because the hate does not come from piece of cloth, but rather of your self desire and your beauty.
    • It is a wajib, that should be the first priority, not what you like, but what Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى like and made it as command to obey.
