  1. The book of Isaiah 61:1-4 says: The Spirit of the Lord God is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners; 2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of our God’s vengeance; to comfort all who mourn, 3 to provide for those who mourn in Zion; to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, festive oil instead of mourning, and splendid clothes instead of despair. And they will be called righteous trees, planted by the Lord to glorify him. 4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins; they will restore the former devastations; they will renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. I've meditated on this passage for the last couple of days and found multiple aspects of it very comforting. I often find that I'm so broken and captive by my sin and shame that I'm helpless to free myself. However, this passage brings hope that God can do what I cannot! Points that mean a lot to me: My soul has been wounded by sin and shame. But God has healing in store for my heart Sin has captured and imprisoned me. However, God has declared liberty and freedom! I'm no longer bound to those things. I cry and grieve my shortcomings like one who mourns and wails, but instead, God has made me crowned and dressed me as royalty. I will be called a tree of righteousness, full of strength and standing tall. God is glorified and praised by how I've been changed. The places in my heart that are run down and empty He helps build back up into being full of life and flourishing. Question 1: What are your thoughts on these verses? Question 2: How do you find encouragement when discouraged by human brokeness?
  2. Here are some "trading cards" (not really, but because of the size) inspired by the Old Testament passages as labeled that I made when I was trying to pass the time a few weeks ago. Media is ballpoint pen on brown paper bag. I am NOT an artist by any stretch of the imagination & these were the first drawings I've done in at least 4 years. I purposely chose to do these images because I cannot draw people or animals to save my life; unfortunately that really limits what art I can produce. Let me know if you like these, I'd love to do some of the Kaa'ba or the Dome of the Rock if it will not be seen as offensive (eventually I want to do one inspired by Hussain because I relate to his story so deeply)
  3. SalamAlaykum Brothers and Sister, I hope you are all well I was wondering if someone can tell me where in the Quran it says that the Old and New Testament is Corrupt. Because Muslims say that the Injeel and Torah was changed but where does it say that in the Quran. PLEASE DONT BRING VERSES WHICH TALK ABOUT THE WORDS BEING ALTERED ORALLY, But verses which mention that it was changed in writing. Jazakallah
  4. In the name of Allah Hello everybody Introduction The belief in “Mahdi” (pbuh) originates from the divine nature of mankind. This belief causes hope in the hearts of people. Furthermore, even though there have been differences in the belief of the existence of a savior, this belief however existed amongst many of the ancient communities. Due to the divine law of Allah sending prophets to promise the arrival of a savior, the belief in a savior has been mentioned in other holy books. Though the narrations regarding to savior in other beliefs do not all coincide exactly with the [Edited Out]ta faith, they at least prove the existence of such a belief. This article will be elaborating and presenting the different beliefs of previous faiths about the existence of a savior. Imam Mahdi (pbuh) in the Old Testament The promise of the Savior has been mentioned in 35 section of the 150 part Muzamir of Prophet David’s Gospel (Holy book). “For oppressors will be eradicated, but the waiters of God inherit the earth. After a while there would be no oppressors and …” “And a stem has grown from its roots; a branch will spring from its roots. And on it will the ghost of God be placed and …will judge the poor fairly and will judge truthfully toward the oppressed.” In this book there is a brief explanation about reappearance era: “A Wolf will live with a sheep, a leopard will sleep with a goat, a calf will be tamed with a lion, and a small kid will operate upon them. And there won’t be a single loss or corruption within any of my holy mountains because the world will be filled with the insight of God.” And further He emphasizes upon this holy occultation, “Though the result of this may delay, await for it, for it will truly come without hesitation.” Mahdi (pbuh) in the New Testament (The Gospels and their additions) It has been talked about him in different Gospels: "The appearance of Human's Son is like light that spreads from east to west ... and then his signs will appear in the sky, and all the people will beat their breast at that time, and will watch him come down on clouds majestically." And this same Bible (New Testament) speaks of awaiting (during occultation) as such, “Thus you to be prepared, for the son of Man will come at a time you do not expect.” (Chapter 24, verses 37 and 45). Marcus talks about awaited people: “But Father, no one knows of that day and hour, not the angels and not even the Son. So stay alert and supplicate, because you do not know when that time will arrive” (The Bible of Marcus, Chapter 14, verses 26-27, 31 and 33). An interesting point about the Bible: According to American writer Max, the word ‘Son of Human/Man’ has been mentioned 80 times in the Gospel and the new additions. However, only 30 of them are about Jesus (pbuh) and the 50 other are regarding the savior who will reappear near the ends of time. Jesus (pbuh) will come with him, and will respect him greatly. And no one knows of the hour and day of the reappearance but the Almighty creator. Mahdi (pbuh) in Hindu's holy books Let it be emphasized that from the point of view of the Shiite belief, these books are not considered holy. Rather these excerpts are collected from previous holy books and/or from noble people. Also these specific predictions must be somehow related to sacred works and revelations. It has been narrated in one of the Hindu books known as “Bask” that: “a just commander near the ends of time will end two worlds. This commander is the leader of angels and mankind. The truth is with him. And he will get hold of what are hidden within the seas, earth, and skies.” In "Shakmoni", an accredited Hindu book, it has been mentioned that: “Monarchy in this world will end by the son of the best creature, "Koshen"(name of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP)). He will rule on the mountains of the east to west and will ride upon the clouds...” Furthermore, we read in "Vashen-Jool" about the end results of the world: “Eventually, the world will turn toward the one whose name is “Auspicious”, he loves God and is of God’s special servants." We may find texts about The Savior in other Hindu books such as: Dartek, Dideh Patkil, and Shaboohergan. Mahdi (pbuh) in Zoroastrians references In “Zand”, one of the holy books of Zoroastrians, the end of the world is discussed in this way, “Then, Izadan will be aided by Ahoora Mazda and will gain a great victory against Ahrimans. It is after Izadan victory that human beings will become prosperous.” The book of Jamasb, one of the Zoroastrian scholars, describes the characteristics of Mahdi (pbuh) as such, “Someone will come from the Tazian Land of Hashem descendants with the religion of his ancestors; he will come towards Iran with many troops; he shall civilize and fill the earth with justice.” And somewhere else he says, “From the last prophet’s descendants, someone will come who follows his ancestor’s religion. “From the justice he practices, the entire world will become ‘Mehr Azmay’ (Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH&HP)) followers.” “Bahman” contains Zoroaster foretells. In the book of Zand and HooHooMan Lisen the arrival of Socians, the great savior of the world has been foreteller as, “Signs for the arrival of the savior will be seen as marvelous signals appear in the sky and some angels will carry his messages from the east and the west to the whole world.” The ancient Iranians believed so strongly in the arrival of “Socians” that when their empire was defeated decisively in “Qadesieh war” the third Yazdgerd turned to his great castle, “Mada’in”, and said “Bless you; I will leave now and shall return with one of my descendants who has not reappeared yet” (Book of Jamasb, pages 121-122). However, the Shiite believes Mahdi (pbuh) is of the descendants of Yazdgerd’s daughter. She was the wife of the third Imam of Shiites, Imam Hussein (pbuh), who is the ancestor of Imam Mahdi (pbuh). Mahdi (pbuh) in different nations Below is a brief description on a few beliefs of different nations: 1) The ancient Iranians believed that “Garzas,” their historical hero, is alive and that a hundred thousand angels will keep him until the day he will come and fill the world with justice. 2) The Slovakian believe that someone will reappear from the east, unite all the Slovakian tribes and will set them over the world. 3) The Germans believed that one of them will come and set Germans over the world. 4) Residents of “Sebastian” waited for the return of “Marco Karliowich”. 5) The Jews believe that”Messiah” (the great savior) will come and rule the world forever. But they know him as the descendants of Is’haq. However, the Old Testament regards him as the descendant of Isma’il, obviously. 6) People of “Scandinavia” believe that the world will receive some misfortunes. World wars will ruin most of the nations, then “Oodin” or the divine help will come and defeat the entire world. 7) The Greek believe “Kal”, the great savior, will come and save the entire world. 8) Central America tribes believe that the savior of the world will gain victory after some events in the world. 9) The Chinese know someone called “Keresna” to be the savior of the world.10) The central Europe tribes wait for the coming of “Bokhes”.
