  1. Some Paulines in this web have tried to take verses from the Quran out of context and misinterpret verses in hopes to support their baseless beliefs after not bringing arguments to defend their baseless beliefs after they had all been refuted. Surah 5:13 “So for their breaking of the covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard. They distort words from their [proper] usages and have forgotten A PORTION OF THAT OF WHICH THEY WERE REMINDED. And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them. But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds]. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” Fabima naqdiHim meethaqahum laAAannahum waJaAAalna quloobahum qasiyatanyuharrifoona alkalima AAan mawadiAAihi waNasoo haththanMimma thukkiroo bihi wala tazalu tattaliAAuAAala kha-inatin minhum illa qaleelan minhumfaAAfu AAanhum wasfah inna Allahayuhibbu almuhsineen not only did the Jews distort the words from its places but they also abandoned a portion of the scripture, the Jews today only have a portion of the scripture and the other portion has been abandoned hence we see corrupted parts in the Torah and also in the Kutvim and Navim. Transliteration of Jeremiah 8:8 8How do you say, "We are wise, and the Torah of Yahweh is with us"? Verily, behold it is actually the vain pen, he made a false scribe. jeremiah 8:9 9Wise men were ashamed, they were broken and caught; behold they rejected the word of Yahweh, now what wisdom have they? we can see that in the time of prophet Jeremiah the Torah has been partially corrupted but the law has been persevered. Deuteronomy 13:1 “1Everything I command you that you shall be careful to do it. You shall neither add to it, nor subtract from it.” the Jews held faithful to the law but they abondend a portion of the scripture thus corrupted parts came in the stories. Surah 5:44 “Indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which WAS(past tense) guidance and light. The prophets who submitted [to Allah ] judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah, and they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers.” Inna anzalna attawrata feeha hudan wa noorun yahkumu biha annabiyyoona allatheena aslamoo lillatheena hadoo wa-rrabbaniyyoona wal ahbaru bima istuhfithoomin kitabi Allahi wakanoo AAalayhi shuhadaafala takhshawoo annasa wakhshawniwala tashtaroo bi-ayatee thamanan qaleelanwaman lam yahkum bima anzala Allahu faola-ikahumu alkafiroon Surah 5:46 “And following in their footsteps, We sent Jesus son of Mary, confirming that which came before him IN THE TORAH; and We gave him the Gospel, in which WAS(past tense) guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it IN THE TORAH as guidance and instruction for the righteous.” Wa qaffayna AAala atharihimbiAAeesa ibni maryama musaddiqan lima baynayadayhi mina attawrati wa-ataynahual-injeela feehi hudan wa-noorun wamusaddiqan limabayna yadayhi mina attawrati wahudan wamawAAithatanlilmuttaqeen jesus came to confirm the truth contained in the Torah which is the law and and a portion of the persevered prophetic writings and prophecies. Mathew 5:17-20 17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the law until everything is accomplished. 19Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. Surah 5:14 And from those who say, "We are Christians" We TOOK THEIR covenant; BUT they FORGOT A PORTION of that of which they were reminded. So We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do. Wa-mina al-latheena qaloo inna-nasara akhathna meethaqahum fa-nasoo haththan mimma thukkiroobihi faaghrayna baynahumu alAAadawata walbaghdaaila yawmi alqiyamati wasawfa yunabbi-ohumu Allahubima kanoo yasnaAAoon the Christians today only have a portion of the scripture and the other potion is corrupted because they abandoned a portion of what they were reminded of thus Hellenistic and pagan beliefs came in after the gospel was lost. Thus the gospels today they have as is containes only a portion of the truth. surah 5:47 “And let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed THEREIN. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient.” Walyahkum ahlu al-injeeli bimaAnzala Allahu feehi waman lam yahkum bimaAnzala Allahu fa ola-ika humu alfasiqoon The verse says to judge by what Allah has revealed IN the gospel. Jesus many times says what he says and the works is not by his own inclinations rather it is naught but a revelation. John 14:10-11 “...The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is Allaha through me who is doing His work. 11Believe me when I say that I am united(i.e in purpose) with Allaha and Allaha is united with me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.” so to know what Allah has revealed therein we judge by the law and the prophets( persevered portion). Jesus says in Mathew 5:17 17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” So Judge the gospel by the law and the prophets and the truth contained in there will be distinguished from falsehood therein. I have presented a great example of that. Surah 5:48 “And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it in/from the Scripture and AS A CRITERION OVER IT. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.” Wa-anzalna ilayka alkitaba bilhaqqimusaddiqan lima bayna yadayhi mina alkitabi wa muhayminan AAalayhi fahkum baynahum bima-anzala Allahu wala tattabiAA ahwaahum AAammajaaka mina alhaqqi likullin jaAAalna minkumshirAAatan waminhajan walaw shaa AllahulajaAAalakum ommatan wahidatan walakin liyabluwakumfeema atakum fastabiqoo alkhayratiila Allahi marjiAAukum jameeAAan fayunabbi-okum bimakuntum feehi takhtalifoon “And We revealed to You, the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it in/from(mina) the Scripture(alkitabi) and AS A CRITERION(muhayminan) OVER IT.” the Quran is a measuring rod, the prophet Muhammad ((عليه السلام)) used it to judge by what Allah has revealed in the previous scriptures. “So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth.” notice its says “from the scripture” or “in the scripture” if the Quran came to confirm the previous scriptures as it is, it would say “And We have revealed to you, the Book in truth, confirming the scripture that preceded it.” But that is not the case. The Quran came to confirm the truth contained in the previous scriptures. Surah 5:50 “Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].” Surah 5:17 “They have disbelieved who say that Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary. Say, "Then who could prevent Allah at all if He had intended to destroy the Messiah, the son of Mary, and his mother or everyone on the earth?" And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills, and Allah is over all things competent.” Laqad kafara allatheena qaloo inna Allaha huwa almaseehu ibnu maryama qul famanyamliku mina Allahi shay-an in arada an yuhlika almaseeha ibna maryama wa-ommahu waman fee al-ardijameeAAan walillahi mulku assamawati wal-ardi wama baynahuma yakhluqu mayashao wallahu AAala kulli shay-inqadeer Those who believe jesus is God are considered disbelievers not of the non-Muslim believing people of the book. surah 5:18 “And the Jews and the Christians say, "We are the sons of Allah and His beloved." Say, "Then why does He punish you for your sins?" Rather, you are human beings from among those He has created. He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, and to Him is the [final] destination.” Wa-qalati alyahoodu wan-nasara nahnu abnao Allahi wa-ahibbaohu qul falima yuAAaththibukum bithunoobikum bal antum basharun mimman khalaqa yaghfiru liman yashao wa-yuAAaththibu man yashao walillahi mulku assamawatiwal-ardi wama baynahuma wa-ilayhialmaseer Deuteronomy 8:5-6 “5You shall know in your heart, that just as a man chastises his son, so does the Lord, your God, chastise you. 6And you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, to go in His ways, and to fear Him.” Surah 5:72 They have disbelieved who say, " Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers. Laqad kafara allatheena qaloo inna Allaha huwa almaseehu ibnu maryama wa-qala almaseehu ya banee isra-eela oAAbudoo Allaharabbee wa-rabbakum innahu man yushrik billahi faqadharrama Allahu AAalayhi aljannata wamaA-wahu annaru wama lith-thalimeena min ansar Surah 5:73 They have disbelieved who say, " Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. Laqad kafara allatheena qaloo inna Allaha thalithu thalathatin wamamin ilahin illa ilahun wahidun wa-inlam yantahoo AAamma yaqooloona layamassanna allatheenakafaroo minhum AAathabun aleem the Trinitarians believe this without realising it and some do believe this but they arrogantly deny it. The Trinity is, the Father, the Son(jesus) and the Holy Spirit who share the same essence and are co-eqeual and co-eternal but are distinct but they are one. Now the fact they are DISTINCT from each other and share the same ESSENCE and are co-equal shows that there are three Gods. the Father is God Almighty, 1 Corinthians 8:6 “6yet for us there is but one God, THE FATHER, from whom all things came and for whom we live” no sign of the trinity at all; now the fact they share the same essence as the Father, who is God Almighty, and are DISTINCT shows that the trinitarians believe in three Gods, obviously when the trinitarians are faced with this they jump into other heresies and start being inconsistent. Trinitarians try to misinterpret many verses to fit in the trinity but fail to do so and enter into a another heresy. We can see many times in the gospels that jesus calling upon Allaha/the Father and prays to Him and says explicitly he has a God. Here are examples John 11:41-42 41So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “FATHER(Allaha), I THANK YOU(Allaha) THAT YOU(Allaha) HAVE HEARD ME(jesus). 42I KNEW THAT YOU(Allaha) ALWAYS HEAR ME(jesus), BUT I SAID THIS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PEOPLE STANDING HERE, THAT THEY MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU(Allaha) SENT ME(jesus).” John 20:17 17Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, TO MY God and your God.’ ” Even Paul(Saul) believed Jesus has a God although he believes Jesus is divine he saw him as being subordinate to the Father. Paul believed the Father is God almighty he did not believe in a trinity. Trinitarians try to use 2 Corinthians 13:14 to try an show that the trinity existed in Paul’s epistle, let’s examine the verse... 14May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. We can clearly see that Paul is distinguishing between Jesus Christ and the “love of God” and the Holy Spirit. Paul himself believed the holy spirit is a gift from God. 1 Thessalonians 4:8 ...the very God who gives you His holy spirit.” The question arises did Paul believe in a trinity or was he a dualist ? 1 Corinthians 8:6 “6yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live” Paul makes it clear that “the Father” is God, not the Son nor the Holy Spirit. If Paul was a trinitarian he would say, “there is but one God, the Father the Son The Holy Spirit,...” Paul calls God “the Father” the same way Prophet Ezra, Daniel Jeremiah called God “Allah”. Ephesians 1:3 “3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” “Praise to be the God....of our lord Jesus Christ” Romans 15:6 6so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. ”you may glorify the God...of our lord Jesus Christ” We can clearly see that Paul is distinguishing God from Jesus and that Jesus has a God and that God is the father of Jesus. Colossians 1:3 “3We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” The trinitarians are not seen as of those who are of the people of the book rather they are disbelievers. Jesus himself denies being God. John 10: 27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. As can be seen from John 10:28 and John 10:29 Jesus was telling the Jews that he and God share something in common, and it was: no one can pluck the faithful from either of their hands. This was the common factor between Jesus and God in this case, and not that Jesus was himself God, or that they were exactly the same. John 10:30 30I and the Father are one.” then the Jews took this part of out of context and started to stone him 31Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father(GOD). For which of these do you stone me?” Jesus at this point didn’t know why he was getting stoned even though he was carrying out God’s commands and purpose which are not blasphemous hence why he said “I have shown you many good works from the Father(God). And asked, “For which of these do you stone me?” Then Jews replied to him, 33“We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” Then jesus replies cleverly to their false accusation, 34Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “elohim” ? the Jews are radical monotheists, jesus quotes Psalms 82:6, jesus is challenging them by pointing out is “elohim” over here is to be taken literally or not ? If saying “I and the Father are one” is blasphemy then “I have said you are elohim” is also blasphemy. The Jews knew very well the it is not to be taken literally rather it is an expression, jesus was making it clear that “I and the Father are one” was just an expression meaning him and God are one in purpose , If Jesus was God or one literally with God then he wouldn’t have hesitated to clarify the matter at that point. then jesus takes advantage of Pslams 82:6 to make it clear to them that he is a Messenger of God. 35If he called them ‘elohim,’ to WHOM THE WORD OF GOD CAME—AND SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE SET ASIDE— 36what about the one whom the Father set apart as His very own [representative] and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am the son of Allaha’? 37Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father. 38But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is united(i.e in purpose) with me, and I am united with the Father.” In verse 35 jesus crystal clearly points out that Pslams 82:6 is about God’s Messengers (Messengers receive divine scripture like David,Moses,job,Ezekiel,Enoch,Noah. Prophets of God don’t receive any divine scripture rather they confirm the truth contained within the scripture), then in verse 36,right after, jesus says,”WHAT ABOUT THE ONE WHOM THE FATHER(Allaha) SET APART AS HIS VERY OWN [REPRESENTATIVE] AND SENT IN TO THE WORLD?” Then jesus takes advantage of Psalms 82:6 that he used to refute their false accusation and says, “Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am the son of Allaha’? 37Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father.“ as Pslams 82:6 calls the Messengers of God “sons of the Most Hight(El Elyon)”. In verse 37 jesus makes it clear that he does these good work with not his own authority rather with God’s authority and Jesus tells them to not believe in him if he does these without God’s authority, Jesus was simply carrying out God’s commands and purpose. Which he makes clear in the next verse, “38But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is united with me, and I am united(i.e one in purpose) with the Father.” it is clear as daylight jesus was just a Messiah, Prophet, Messenger of God. Another incident where it shows Jesus is not God. Mark 10:17-18 17As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.” Jesus questions the questioner for calling him “Good teacher” then says to the questioner “No one is good except God alone” THEN jesus answers his Question. Jesus questions the questioners minor praise by calling him “Good” jesus didn’t want any sort of praise not even the least rather he wanted all praise to God hence why he said “no one is good except God alone” then after that Jesus answers his question ,which was what must he do to inherit eternal life, and says “19You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’” 20“Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.” 21Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Jesus loved him when the boy said he has kept these this shows that Jesus did encourage to keep the commandments and also preached to keep as we can see in many occasions. Jesus having the knowledge of the Unseen does not show in any way, shape or from that Jesus is God, Prophet Jesus is no different to other prophets who had the knowledge of the unseen when they prophecies about future events or what will happen to a particular person. Jesus was asking the boy to follow him physically, again this in no way, shape or form does it show jesus is God; jesus told the boy to sell everything he had and then to come follow him. Even when jesus tells the people to follow him that in no way shows he is God, jesus is carrying out God’s purpose and commands and he has the knowledge to the door of salvation so when jesus tells other people to follow him he is telling them to follow his teaching which God is preaching through him just like the previous prophets and to take him as a role model just like the previous prophets. And it is God who gives jesus followers as we have shown before. And also notice the boy didn’t call jesus “Good teacher” the second time rather he only called him “teacher” the boy recognised that Jesus didn’t want any sort of praise at all period. surah 5:75 The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded. People saw jesus as a prophet of God and was introduced as one. Mathew 21:11 11The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” Matthew 21:45-46 45When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus’ parables, they knew he was talking about them. 46They looked for a way to arrest him, but they were afraid of the crowd because the people held that HE(Jesus) WAS A PROPHET. Luke 24:19 “About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He WAS A PROPHET, powerful in word and deed before Allaha and all the people. Luke 24:37-39 37They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I HAVE.” Surah 5:77 Say, "O People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the soundness of the way." Qul ya ahla alkitabi lataghloo fee deenikum ghayra alhaqqi wala tattabiAAoo-ahwaa qawmin qad dalloo min qablu wa-adalloo-katheeran wadalloo AAan sawa-i assabeel the Paulines added many innovations in the gospels and teachings so did the trinitarians to the further extent of taking verses out of context and misinterpreting verses deliberately; so will they not go back to the truth and reconstruct the gospels. Surah 9:30 And the Jews say, "Ezra is the son of Allah "; and the Christians say, "The Messiah is the son of Allah ." That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded? Wa qalati alyahoodu AAuzayrun ibnu Allahi wa qalati annasara almaseehu ibnu Allahi thalika qawluhum bi-afwahihim yudahi-oona qawla allatheena kafaroo min qablu qatalahumu Allahu anna yufakoon Jesus himself didn’t believe he was the literal son of God nor did he accept being called the son of God rather these terms in gospel(s) was added by Pauline authors who added these in gospels to put in their Hellenistic beliefs. Luke 4:41 “41Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Messiah.” It is clear that Jesus rebuked them because they were calling him the literal son of God when deep down they knew he was the Messiah not the literal son of God as the verse clearly states. Jesus was already preaching and healing so demons and later on the Pharisees are trying their hardest to give a accusation in order to get him executed so Jesus was constantly explaining himself and being clever with his preaching. Verse 43 jesus explicitly says he must go preach the the good news of the covenant of God and in verse 42 people are tying to make him stay. So in short Jesus was already preaching and he had to face false accusations from the demons then later on the teachers of the law and the Pharisees. Surah 9:31 They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah, and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him. Jesus came to confirm the Law which stressed a lot on Monotheism. And exposed those who added to God’s law yet the rabbbi’s added to the law and the Jews took their opinion instead of God’s law as if the rabbi’s were lord’s beside Allah and likewise with the Christians taking the innovations of their church fathers and neglecting God’s law as if they are equal to God. The Paulines claim jesus is to be the son of God when they weren’t commanded such thing and is blasphemous. Exodus 20:3-5 “You shall have no other gods upon My face. You shall not make for yourselves a graven image or any LIKENESS which is in the heavens above, which is on the earth below, or which is in the water beneath the earth. You shall neither prostrate yourself before them nor worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a zealous God, who visits the iniquity of the father’s upon the sons, upon the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me...” “You shall have no other gods upon My Face” it’s clear that Allah commanded not to associate anyone with Him. And to worship Him alone. Deuteronomy 6:4 “4Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God; the Lord is one.” Mathew 5:17 17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. Matthew 5:19-20 19Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. Mark 12:28-29 28One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Matthew 7:24-27 24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” surah 19:88-95 And they say, "The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son." You have done an atrocious thing. The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son.And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son. There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant. He has enumerated them and counted them a [full] counting.And all of them are coming to Him on the Day of Resurrection alone. The adoptionist Nostorians believed that God has adopted Jesus son of Mary. This is blasphemous since adopting is an attribute that strictly belongs to the animal kingdom and to humans and does not befit the Divine since He created these laws within nature. Surah 3:23 Do you not consider, [O Muhammad], those who were given A PORTION FROM the Scripture? They are invited to the Scripture of Allah that it should arbitrate between them; then a party of them turns away, and they are refusing. Alam tara ila allatheena ootoo-naseeban mina alkitabi yudAAawna ila kitabiAllahi liyahkuma baynahum thumma yatawallafareequn minhum wahum muAAridoon the jews only have portion of God’s word in the Tanakh and the Christians only have a portion on God’s Word being conveyed in their bible as it is. Surah 9:75 Do you covet [the hope, O believers], that they would believe for you while a party of them used to hear the word(i.e the Torah) of Allah and then ALTER IT after they had understood it while they were knowing? AfatatmaAAoona an yu-minoo lakum waqad kana fareequn minhum yasmaAAoona kalama Allahi thumma yuharrifoonahu min baAAdi ma AAaqaloohuwahum yaAAlamoon The Jews after they had understood God’s word (I.e the Torah and prophetic writings) they altered it thus they have only a portion of God’s word with them today. Surah 9:78 And among them are unlettered ones who do not know the Scripture except in wishful thinking, but they are only assuming. Wa-minhum ommiyyoona la yaAAlamoona alkitaba illa amaniyya wa-in hum illayathunnoon Ironically the Christians fall into this category the most. Surah 9:79 So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from Allah," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn. Fawaylun lillatheena yaktuboona alkitaba bi-aydeehim thumma yaqooloona hatha min AAindi Allahi liyashtaroo bihi thamanan qaleelan fa-waylun lahum mimmakatabat aydeehim wa-waylun lahum mimma yaksiboon the jews are guily of this and especially the Christians. 1st level the Pauline author of the gospels have added their own words and removed some to put in their Hellenistic beliefs 2nd level the trinitarians have also altred the partially altered gospel(s) we can see that in my post “Doctrine of the trinity refuted”. The following excerpts come from a slightly unaltered version of gospel according to Matthew that were probably copied from the original manuscript written by Matthew; which is now lost and cannot be found. Thus Eusebius informs us of the actual words Jesus spoke to his disciples in Matthew 28:19. “With one word and voice He said to His disciples: “Go, and make disciples of all nations in My Name, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you,” — (Proof of the Gospel by Eusebius, Book III, ch 6, 132 (a), p. 152) Who said to them; “Make disciples of all the nations in my Name.” — (Eusebius, Proof of the Gospel, Book III, Chapter 7, 138 (c), p. 159) In Book III of his History, Chapter 5, Section 2, which is about the Jewish persecution of early Christians, we read, “relying upon the power of Christ, who had said to them, “Go ye and make disciples of all the nations in my name.” And in his Oration in Praise of Emperor Constantine, Chapter 16, Section 8, we read, “Surely none save our only Savior has done this, when, after his victory over death, he spoke the word to his followers, and fulfilled it by the event, saying to them, “Go ye and make disciples of all nations in my name.” “I saw that God had especially guarded the Bible; yet when copies of it were few, learned MEN HAD IN SOME INSTANCES CHANGED THE WORDS, thinking that they were making it more plain, when in reality they were mystifying that which was plain, BY CAUSING IT TO LEAN TO THIER ESTABLISHED VIEWS, WHICH WERE GOVEREND BY TRADITION.” — (E.G. White, EW, 220.2, 1882) this is is sufficient proof that alterations took place even after the first major one. All alterations were taken place for theological and political reasons. 3rd level, Paulines try to include epistles as the word of God. This is nothing but a desperate attempt. Epistles are not scripture they are letters and sermons. The gospels are not scripture aswell rather it is a biography of jesus.
  2. First some Introductory points: The Bab was a man who claimed he is the gate to Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s), then claimed he is the Mahdi Himself, then he is a new Prophet and then he claimed he is God. This happened about 150 years ago in Persia. He appointed a man called Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal as his successor and executor of his will. Mirza Yahya was the leader of the Babis until his half-brother Baha'u'llah (creator of the Baha'i cult) succeeded in sending him to the sidelines. Mirza Yahaya is greatly hated by Baha’is and regarded as one their greatest enemies. To put it in a nutshell, this is how he is viewed by Baha'is: “Mírzá Yaḥyá is scarcely spoken of, but when he is mentioned he is called Satan.” (E.G. Browne, Materials for the Study of the Babi Religion, p. 117)​What most Baha’is don’t know or will not tell you is that according to the Bab, Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal, was God. This is how the Bab’s will to Subh-i Azal starts: “Name of Azal, testify that there is no God but I, the dearest beloved. Then testify that there is no God but you, the victorious and permanent.”​First the Bab states very explicitly that he is God (not a messenger from God or a manifestation of God, but God himself), then he tells Subh-i Azal that he too is God and should testify to this (seriously what the hell)! These statements being illogical and meaningless aside, according to the Bab Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal is God and according to Baha’ullah he is the Satan and devil! Why should anyone takes the claims of Baha'u'llah seriously when he claims he is the one that the Bab had prophesied about when he doesn't have faith in the Bab's God and calls him Satan?And why should we take the Bab's claims seriously who claims he is God then Passes his Godhood to Mirza Yahya who is then deprived of his Godhood by Baha'u'llah and changed into satan?!Why do these people claim they are monotheists while the core of their beliefs is polytheism and belief in multiple human Gods (Baha'u'llah also claims he is God)?Where is the logic in any of these claims?

  3. Salaam, This is somewhat of a cryptic post but do you believe our Imams to be more powerful or Shaytan (Iblees) to be more powerful? Reason for either choice?
  4. Salaam Alaykum, ''God did curse him, but he said: “I will take of Thy servants a portion marked off; I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires'' Some of the tafaseer are very straightforward and clear in this, however, this verse raises an issue in my mind that I can't get rid off, namely, Satan's power and creative abilities. Not only does he have power over ''a portion of His servants'' but he also will ''create within them false desires''. How does he create? Who gave him the power to create? He can create IN us? Does he create out of nothing or is there already something in us he builds upon? How do we recognize the false from the true desires? Surely there is a reason why he says false desires. Or are all desires false by default?
  5. I hope you're all well. Keeping it simple, my question is, why is satan promised eternal damnation in hell? Was it because he refused to bow to adam, or was it because of the acts that followed? Perhaps it was about more than just refusing to bow? I can't accept the notion that it was a simple rejection to bow that led to his punishment. God is all Seeing, All knowing, Most Merciful. He is aware of satan's pride, and how it blurrs his judgement. The Quran says, "Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity". There is the element of free will and the concept of testing, but I can't believe Satan would be stupid enough to disobey a direct command from God with first hand proof of His existence. Knowing fully that there is no escape from God, even if I believed it were unjust (due to my ignorance), I'd follow through. And I've only been living for 21 years. Satan has been living long before then. What I mean to say, he is most definitely wiser than any of us. So is there more to the story? I do realise that the bow wasn't only meant for Adam, but the light of the ahl-albayt and muhmmad (pbuh) that resided in him. I ask this because I hoped to better understand the extent of God's mercy. Thank you for reading
  6. In Islamic tradition it is the site where Adam fell to earth and where his footprint can be found https://youtu.be/AA8kzXDW4xk Adam's Peak or Seri Pada in Sirilanka which in Buddhist tradition is held to be the footprint of the Buddha, in Hindu tradition that of Shiva and in Islamic and Christiantradition that of Adam, The footstep is covered by a handsome roof, and is guarded by the priests of a rich monastery half-way up the mountain, who maintain a shrine on the summit of the peak." And as mentioned in the Islamic history, Adam A.S fell on Serendib Mount in Sirilanka , and Eve (Hawa A.S) fell on Al-Marwa in Mecca, while the Satan was dropped in the lowest point on earth, a salty valley in Basra/ Iraq
  7. Salam dear friends I am sure that everyone is witnessing some great changes and challenges of the modern world. The times are strange to say the least. Are these the end times? The possibilities exist. After study of many books and listening to many lectures, I have reached the conclusion that there is one guy who is ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT for all of us to listen to. His speeches are vital regarding our responsibility. I have a lot to share but all my work is summarized by these speeches. I INSIST again n again n again all my friends that they MUST listen to this: http://www.hussainiat.com/album/1921/01-safar-1435-hj-maulana-ali-murtaza-zaidi-201/16537.aspx I hope that it enlightens us. May everything that we possess be served to Allah, The Merciful. Waslam
  8. Salam, Humble Bundle has chosen to put Rushdie's "Satanic Verses" in their latest collection of audio books that they sell for a cheap price. A comment has been made on their Facebook-page and it would be great if you could support and answer the comment, especially considering that it is done at the same time as it is the birthday of our beloved Prophet!! https://www.facebook.com/humblebundle/posts/657211527655488 Please spread this so we all who love our Prophet(S) can make a stance!
  9. "...and whoever takes the Satan for a guardian rather than Allah he indeed shall suffer a manifest loss.." (Surah Nisa: Verse 119 ) Interpretation(Tafsir): When one calls the Satan, that is, obeys his commands, Allah counts it as taking the Satan for a guardian, as He says: "And whoever takes the Satan for a guardian rather than Allah he indeed shall suffer a manifest loss." It should be noted that Allah has not said: Whosoever the Satan is his guardian; because the previous verses have clearly shown that the guardian is Allah alone and no one else has any guardianship on anything even if someone takes him as his guardian. (Al-Mizan) If we observe our society in this era of the ghaibah of our Imam(a.s) we can simply understand that majority of Muslims have accepted Satan as their guardian, and our hearts have turned black. It will be misleading to say that the our society is very good and only some men and women have been misled, the ground realities are totally different. When a person with strong belief goes out of his house, it becomes extremely difficult for him to save his eemaan from immodestly dressed women, along with ones wearing seductive hijaabs, luring music and many other fatal temptations. And this is the reason why the Masoom(as) said that a time will come when Saving Eemaan will be more difficult than holding fire in hand.
  10. Just read this disturbing news. Wahabis threatening Shias with murder and rapes at 2013 Hajj. What level has this Saudi "fonicated" money brought the Wahabis/Sunnis down to? La'an on these enemies of Allah and humanity. http://abna.ir/data.asp?lang=3&id=473388
  11. (salam) I just found a hadith about Satan changing his way where Umar is. Is there anybody who can shed some light on the following hadith? Just want to know how much this hadith is authenticated and what does it really mean? Narrated Sa'd: 'Umar bin Al-Khattab asked permission of Allah's Apostle to see him while some Quraishi women were sitting with him and they were asking him to give them more financial support while raising their voices over the voice of the Prophet. When 'Umar asked permission to enter, all of them hurried to screen themselves the Prophet admitted 'Umar and he entered, while the Prophet was smiling. 'Umar said, "May Allah always keep you smiling, O Allah's Apostle! Let my father and mother be sacrificed for you !" The Prophet said, "I am astonished at these women who were with me. As soon as they heard your voice, they hastened to screen themselves." 'Umar said, "You have more right, that they should be afraid of you, O Allah's Apostle!" And then he ('Umar) turned towards them and said, "O enemies of your souls! You are afraid of me and not of Allah's Apostle?" The women replied, "Yes, for you are sterner and harsher than Allah's Apostle." Allah's Apostle said, "O Ibn Al-Khattab! By Him in Whose Hands my life is, whenever Satan sees you taking a way, he follows a way other than yours!" Volume 8, Book 73, Number 108: http://www.islamicit...ri/073.sbt.html (wasalam)
  12. Some sunni from school sent me a video today to prove that Shia's are kufar. He said that we must love Ibes (Satan) because he loves imam Ali In the video a shia shiek said that Ibes (Satan) said that "The best thing iv'e saved for you in the day of Judgement is my love for Amirul Mu'minin Ali" Is this true? explain please? P.S. here's the video, but be warned it's pretty much a video for anti Shia's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0SZuHi17xA
  13. In The Name of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. Assalamualaykum wa RAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATOH. I hope you all are, INSHALLAH (God Willing), well and in the best of health and Faith (Imaan). I remember once hearing a lecture whereby the speaker talking about the Jinns and the story of Iblis being ousted from Paradise. Now, the speaker had said before Adam (as) had been created, Jinns were already existing and that Allah (SWT) had sent a severe punishment on the Jinns for their disobedience but Iblis was the best of the Jinns who used to worship him a lot so Allah (SWT) has raised up to the seventh Heaven to live alongside Jibrail (as) when the Jinns were punished due to his high levels of worship. Then, the angels of the first heaven (sky) had come to know from Allah (SWT) that he was going to do something - I don't remember what exactly it was but it something that the angels got worried about. According to what he had said, the angels also have classes and levels and, so, the angels of the first heaven are inferior to those of the second heaven who, in turn, are inferior to those of the third heaven and so on while the angels of the seventh Heaven are the most superior. So, the lecturer had said these first heaven angels started to panic that this bad thing - as I have said, I don't remember what exactly it was - which Allah (SWT) had mentioned may happen to them so they so went to the angels of the second heaven in order to ask them to intercede for them but these second heaven angels, themselves got worried about what if it was for them and they, in turn, went to angels of the third heaven and so until they all reached the four biggest angels until, at last, they all reached Jibrail (as) who also got worried and suggested they all go to Iblis and ask him to pray to Allah (SWT) because he was so special to Allah (SWT) that He had raised to live with Jibrail (as). So, they all went to Iblis and asked him to pray on their behalf to which he agreed and then, Allah (SWT) punished Iblis which was his ouster because of his disobedience. Basically, the moral that this lecturer was trying to impart was that when you want to pray for material things like cars, money and their like, you should first pray for your friends, family neighbours etc...like the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) used to do and then lastly for yourself but when it comes to praying for forgiveness and immunity from sin, then you must start with yourself and then go to the others. This is the mistake Iblis made whereby he prayed for all the angels but forgot himself so he was the one who suffered! Regardless of the moral from this story, what I would like the respected members of this forum to do is, if they can, provide me references for this story IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER THE SOURCE IS SHIA OR SUNNI. :D By the way, the lecturer was Maulana Sadiq Hasan (some of the oldies may know him as Sadiq Bapu) who is a very, very famous Urdu speaker so I would, most probably, trust his words and be assured that if he says something, then he must have some sources for it. So, I am looking forward to get the source for this hadith. I am in urgent need of it so I would be very grateful if someone could provide me with a reference to this story! :D May Allah (SWT) bless us all, our families and loved ones, may He guide us all with His Perfect Guidance and may He, The Forgiver of Sins and The Oft-Forgiving, forgive all our sins for, indeed, there is neither any refuge nor any respite for the sinners except in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì.
  14. I know it sounds like an odd question, but, as far as I am aware Allah (swt) locks Satan in Hell for the month of Ramdan. In that case surely he's freed during Eid, meaning he can get back to misguiding people. In that case wouldn't that make Eid a day of celebration for Satan, as he is no longer bound by Allah? :P
  15. I was wondering, what exactly is the shaytan. I believe he is a jinn but surely he must be more than just that. I remember reading somewhere that when a man is alone with a woman the shaytan is the third "person" there. Yet, I'm sure there are bound to be cases where two couples (that's two men and two woman) are together, separately (such as in different countries). So how is the shaytan with both couples at the same time. He's just a jinn after all right?
  16. Dear Reader! plz let me know if there is any mistake in my topic>> i really need your help before i publish it in the library of the shrine of Imam Hussain AS. thanx 8 Important questions about Satan May Allah curse him By: Sheikh Ali Alfatlawi First question: What are the power limits of Satan on human? The answer: Satan has no power more than decking, seducing, evil whispering, and inciting; means he doesn’t force human to sin, nor prevent him to choose his action. This has been stated by Quran verses and the following traditions: 1. A verse referring to inciting; to incite people against each others as stated in His the Almighty saying: (And definitely in case an incitement from Ash-Shaytan (the all-vicious (one), i.e., the Devil) ever incites you, then seek refuge in Allah; surely He is Ever-Hearing, Ever-Knowing..) (Quran, 7:200) 2. A verse referring to show the evil ugly deeds lovable to them, then human imagine it as a benefit and he get trapped by it as stated in His the Almighty saying: (And [remember] when Satan made their deeds pleasing to them and said, "No one can overcome you today from among the people, and indeed, I am your protector " Then as soon as the two communities sighted each other, he retreated on his heels and said, "Surely I am quit of you; surely I see what you do not see; surely I fear Allah; and Allah is strict in punishment.") (8:48) 3. A verse referring to evil whispering and its impacts as stated in His the Almighty saying: (Who whispers into the hearts of men) (Quran, 114:5) 4. A verse referring to seducing as stated in His the Almighty saying: (the Satan has made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.) Second question: what are the methods used by Satan to pull the leg of human to do sins and disbelief? The answer: The methods are many! The commander of the faithful AS 3 attractions which are taking place of the origin of the sin which human fall into and do disobedience to Almighty Allah "There are three types of charms: the love of women, which Satan uses as his sword; drinking wine, which Satan uses as his snare; and love of the dinar and the dirham [symbols of wealth], which Satan uses as his arrow.’ (Kanz Alomal: 30883/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol5, Page 191, No. 9376) Third question: What is the answer to he who put the blame on Satan when he sins? The answer: to blame Satan is an escape from responsibility, and lack of recognition of dereliction for what mentioned earlier because Satan do nothing but decking and whispering without compulsion to do the action as Satan distancing himself from the bad deeds of human and put the blame on him as stated in the Almighty saying: (And the Satan shall say after the affair is decided: Surely Allah promised you the promise of truth, and I gave you promises, then failed to keep them to you, and I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you obeyed me, therefore do not blame me but blame yourselves: I cannot be your aider (now) nor can you be my aiders; surely I disbelieved in your associating me with Allah before; surely it is the unjust that shall have the painful punishment.) (Quran, 14:22) The commander of the faithful answered those who curse Satan who pulls their legs to sins by saying: "don’t curse Satan on public while you are his friend on secret" (Sharh Nahj Alblagha by Ibn Alhadid: Vol 20, Page: 329, No. 767) Fourth question: What is the answer to he who says that his Satan won over him and trapped him in sins? The answer: this is the justification indicates an escape from taking responsibilities and pushing the blames away from once-self as Satan has no authorities on the strong faithful for two reasons: A. the weakness of the satanic strategies as stated in the Mighty saying (Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan; surely the strategy of the Satan is weak.) (Quran, 4: 76) B. the strong faithful is the one who fight Satan and wins but in the other hand he who show weakness in front of Satan and surrender to him, is not counted with the strong faithful and (the strong faithful is better than the weak faithful) thus Imam Al-Kathem AS advising us in his well to Hisham " You should begin with the nearest to you, the most inimical, the most harmful, the most aggressive, and the most hidden despite his closeness to you. It is Iblis who is instigating your enemies against you and the source of the hearts' ill inspirations. You should regard him as the most antagonistic enemy and you should be more tolerant in striving him than he is as he is trying to lead you to perdition. He is surely less supported than you are and less harmful despite his great evil, provided that you cling to Allah so as to be guided to a straight path. (Tuhaf-Aloqol: Page 399-400/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol 5, Page 1925: No. 9387, Page 1920: No. 9370.) Fifth question: Why Allah Allowed Satan to spoil his servants? The answer: We know that life is an examination and test world and to achieve reward and punishment there must be attraction to make the faithful attracted towards them, in order to make him deserve one of the two; the reward or the punishment, and this is the divine justice accurately, as stated in the Mighty saying (And in no way did he have any all-binding authority over them, except that We would know him who believed in the Hereafter from him who was in doubt thereof. And your Lord is Ever-Preserving over everything.) (Quran, 34:21) Sixth Question: What is the best way to get rid of Satan's seduce? The answer: It is clear to every sane one that to resort to the Almighty Allah, to hold hard his laws, seek refuge with him are the best defense against the accursed Satan, as stated in the Mighty saying (And say, "My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of the devils, And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they be present with me.") (Quran, 23:97, 98) Also His The Almighty saying (So when you recite the Quran, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan) (Quran, 16:98) His The Almighty saying (But when she delivered her, she said, "My Lord, I have delivered a female." And Allah was most knowing of what she delivered, "And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allah].) (Quran, 3: 36) His The Almighty saying (And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.) (Quran, 7:200) This was confirmed by the commander of the faithful when he said: I praise Allah and seek His help from (what led to the) punishment of Satan and his deceitful acts, and (I seek His) protection from Satan's traps and waylaying. (Nahj Albalagha, Sermon 151) Seventh Question: Who could survive from Iblis (Satan)? The answer: No one saved except the servants whose fear The Almighty Allah and worship him as if they could see him, as stated in the Mighty saying (Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.) (Quran, 16:99), and in His the Almighty saying (Indeed, My servants - no authority will you have over them, except those who follow you of the deviators.) (Quran, 15:42) This is the act of worships which the one who want to survive from Iblis, to be characterized with. Imam Al-Sadiq AS explained that when he said "The damned Satan says that there are five types of people which he cannot deceive, but he has full control over others. The first type consists of those who sincerely take refuge in God and rely on Him in all their affairs. The second type consists of those who say the praises of their Lord often in daytime and at night. The third type is those who like for their believing brothers whatever they like for themselves. The fourth type consists of those who do not lose their calmness at times of calamities. The fifth type are those who are content with what God has given them and do not grieve about their share of daily bread." (Alkhisal: Page 285, No. 37/Mizan Alhekma: Vol 5, Page 1928, No. 9401) Imam al-Baqer AS referred to the importance to fear Allah seriously when he said "Beware of Iblis by truthful fear" (Bihar Al Anwar: Vol 78, Page: 164, No.1./ Mizan Alhekma: Vol5, Page: 1925, No. 9402) There is an easy way that a faithful bondman can fallow to be saved from the evil of Iblis which referred to in the Commander of the faithful saying "'Increase in your supplication and you will be secure from Satan's force.’(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol 78, Page: 9, No.64/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol5, Page: 1928, No.9403) Eighth Question: If Iblis doesn’t have authorities over those who believe as stated in the noble verse (Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.) then how could we explain the suffering of some faithful to the harm of Iblis? The answer: The authority of Iblis is confined on the material side of human without the spiritual side, in other word; his faith and religion are protected by the Almighty Glorious Allah, and this was stated by Imam Al Sadiq AS when he said: "By Allah! He is authorized of the faithful over his body and not authorized on his religion. He was authorized on Ayub AS, he distorted his appearance and wasn’t allowed on his religion." (Alkafi: Vol 8, Page: 288, No.433/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol 5, Page: 1929, No.9405)
  17. (bismillah) 1)Why do we seek refuge from Satan in "Allah" while we start a Surah in "Allah's name"? ÇÚæÐ ÈÇááå & ÈÓã Çááå 2)What is this name of Allah that we start in? It was always a perplexing topic to me. "In The Name Of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful" What is that "Name" or is this imperceivable by human nature? Thanks in advance for your answers. (wasalam)
  18. What do you think, what is the root cause of homosexuality in society? Remember societies are different, there are oppressive societies and cultures such as Saudi Arabia, Wahabi, Salafi cultures of over separation of genders and so on. And then there is ultra feminist, man hater cultures of the West. Please do not comment on Gender Identity Crisis (the disease) since I want to limit this topic only to probing the causes of homosexuality (the crime).
