The Ishmael Maneuver

4 Jul

by A. Freeman, contributing writer

One of the most divisive issues written into the Koran after the fact is the deceitful elevation of Ishmael, in glaring contradiction to what God has told us in the Old Covenant and New Covenant of the Bible, that the Koran (Quran) was sent to CONFIRM (Sura 2:97-98, 3:1-3, 4:47, 5:51, 6:92-94, 6:154-157, 10:37, 12:111, 22:52, 35:31, 46:12, 61:6-7).

This dishonest promotion of Ishmael as the miracle son that Abraham was willing to sacrifice to God, and as a purportedly constant, patient and righteous prophet, not only contradicts the Bible, but also the Koran itself. Were it not for this grievous error, and the gross misinterpretation of a single verse about the crucifixion (Sura 4:157), Christians and Muslims could have long ago been united in learning to actually do God’s Will by following Christ’s Example (John 14:6, Sura 3:55), thus becoming “Champions of God” (Israelites).

The Children of Israel are the descendants of Abraham through Isaac, NOT Ishmael. It was with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-Israel that God established His Covenant, NOT Ishmael, exactly as it says in God’s Law (Gen. 17:20-21) and as confirmed throughout the Koran.

There are at least 41 references to the Children of Israel in the Koran to ensure they are set apart from all other people:-

Suras 2:40, 2:47, 2:83, 2:122, 2:132, 2:211, 2:246, 3:49, 3:84, 3:93, 4:163, 5:13, 5:35, 5:73, 5:81, 5:113, 7:105, 7:134, 7:137, 10:90, 10:93, 17:4, 17:101, 17:104, 19:58, 20:47, 20:80, 20:94, 26:17, 26:22, 26:60, 26:197, 27:76, 32:23, 40:53, 43:59, 44:30, 45:16, 46:10, 61:6, 61:14

Conversely, there is no mention of the children of Ishmael anywhere in the Koran, because God did NOT establish His Covenant with Ishmael, nor with his descendants. This alone should call into question any embellishment of Ishmael and raise red-flags at attempts to deceive, divide and conquer.

The following is what we actually do know about Ishmael:-

Genesis 16:11-12
16:11 And the angel of the “I AM” said unto her, Behold, thou [art] with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the “I AM” hath heard thy affliction.
16:12 And HE WILL BE A WILD MAN; his hand [will be] AGAINST every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell to the East of all his brethren.

Genesis 17:20-21
17:20 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.
17:21 But My Covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

2 Esdras 1:35-40
1:35 Your houses will I give to a people that shall come; which not having heard of Me yet shall believe Me; they to whom I have showed no Signs, yet shall do that which I have commanded them.
1:36 THEY HAVE SEEN NO PROPHETS, yet they shall call their former estate (Abraham and Ishmael) and sins to remembrance, and acknowledge them.
1:37 I take to witness the grace of the People that shall come; whose little ones rejoice with gladness: and though they see Me not with bodily eyes, yet in spirit shall they believe the things that I say.
1:38 And now, brother, behold what glory; and see the People that cometh from the East (Moslems):
1:39 Unto whom I will give for leaders, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel, Hosea, Amos, and Micah, Joel, Obadiah, and Jonah,
1:40 Nahum, and Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi (Sura 2:124), which is called also an angel of the Lord.

Sura 28:43-48
28:43. We did reveal to Moses The Book (The Torah) after We had destroyed the earlier generations, (to give) Insight to men, and Guidance and Mercy, that they might accept warning.
28:44. Thou wast not on the Western side when We decreed the Commission to Moses, nor wast thou a witness (of those events).
28:45. But We raised up (new) generations, and long were the ages that passed over them; but thou wast not a dweller among the people of Midian, rehearsing Our Signs to them; but it is We Who send Apostles (with Inspiration).
28:46. Nor wast thou at the side of (Mount) Sinai when we called (to Moses). Yet (art thou sent) as Mercy from thy Lord, to give warning to a People TO WHOM NO WARNER HAD COME BEFORE THEE: in order that they may receive warning.
28:47. If (We had) not (sent thee),- in case a calamity should seize them for (the deeds) that their hands have sent forth, they might say: “Our Lord! Why didst Thou not send us an Apostle? We should then have followed Thy Signs and been amongst those who believe!”
28:48. But (now), when the Truth has come to them from Ourselves, they say, “Why are not (Signs) sent to him, like those which were sent to Moses?” Do they not then reject (the Signs) which were formerly sent to Moses? They say: “Two kinds of sorcery, each assisting the other!” And they say: “For us, we reject all (such things)!”

How do the above verses square with the ones below?

Ishmael additions made (in red)?

Sura 2:136. Say ye: “We believe in God, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes [of Israel], and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord: we make no difference between one and another of them: and we yield our wills to God’s Will (as they all said and did).”

Sura 2:140. Or do ye say that Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the [twelve] Tribes were Jews or Christians?” Say: “Do ye know better than God?” Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from God? But God is NOT unaware of what ye do!

Sura 3:84. Say: “We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob-Israel, and the (twelve) Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord: we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to God do we bow our will.”

Sura 4:163. We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: We sent inspiration to Abraham; Ishmael; Isaac; Jacob-Israel and the (twelve) Tribes (of Israel); to Aaron; Job; Solomon son of David; Jonah; Jesus; and to David We gave the Psalms (in the Old Covenant/Testament. Note well Psalm 22).

Note well: The Covenant (and the revelation and inspiration that The Covenant brought) was established with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel, from whom Moses, Jesus and ALL of the prophets were descended; NOT with Ishmael. Father (God) separated Ishmael from Abraham and Isaac when Ishmael was 15 or 16, although Ishmael was later blessed.

Was Ishmael added to these verses when the Koran was translated from Syriac into Arabic? Did Father not make a crystal clear distinction/difference between Isaac and Ishmael? And between Ishmael and the Prophets, ALL of whom were descended from Isaac through Jacob/Israel?

How could one be a wild man, working against everyone else, while at the same time be a constant, patient and inspired prophet to a people who had been sent no prophet?

Where are the prophecies of Ishmael or references to “the children of Ishmael” if God actually sent inspiration and prophecies to him? Isn’t it obvious God made an unquestionable distinction between the children of Israel and the children of Ishmael (Gal. 4:22-26), as evidenced by the emphasis God placed on the children of Israel throughout the Old Covenant, New Covenant and Koran?

Ishmael substitutions made (in red)?

Sura 6:82-90
6:82. It is those who believe and confuse not their beliefs with wrong – that are (truly) in security, for they are on (right) Guidance.”
6:83. That was the reasoning about Us, which We gave to Abraham (to use) against his people: We raise whom We will, degree by degree: for thy Lord is full of Wisdom and Knowledge.
6:84. We gave him Isaac and Jacob-Israel: all (three) We guided: and before him, We guided Noah, and among his progeny, Joseph, Job, Moses and Aaron, David and Solomon: thus do We reward those who do good:
6:85. And Zacharias and John, and Jesus and Elijah: all in the ranks of the righteous:
6:86. And Elisha (1 kings 19:19) and Ishmael, and Jonah, and Lot: and to all We gave favour above the nations:
6:87. (To them) and to their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We chose them, and We guided them to The Straight Way.

6:88. This is the Guidance of “I AM”: He giveth that guidance to whom He pleaseth, of His worshippers. If they were to join other gods with Him, all that they did would be vain for them.
6:89. These were the men to whom We gave The Book, and Authority, and Prophethood: if these (their descendants) reject them, behold! We shall entrust their charge to a new People who reject them not.
6:90. Those were the (Prophets) who received “I AM”‘s guidance: copy the guidance they received; say: “No reward for this do I ask of you: this is no less than a Message for the nations.”

Sura 19:49-58
19:49. When he had turned away from them and from those whom they worshipped besides God, We bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob, and each one of them We made a Prophet.
19:50. And We bestowed of Our Mercy on them, and We granted them high honour in the language of truth.
19:51. Also mention in the Book (the story of) Moses: for he was specially chosen, and he was an Apostle (and) a Prophet.
19:52. And We called him from the right side of Mount (Sinai), and made him draw near to Us, for mystic (converse).
19:53. And, out of Our Mercy, We gave him his brother Aaron, (also) a Prophet.
19:54. Also mention in the Book (the story of) Ishmael: he was (strictly) true to what he promised, and he was an Apostle (and) a Prophet.
19:55. He used to enjoin on his people Prayer and Charity, and he was most acceptable in the sight of his Lord.
19:56. Also mention in the Book the case of Enoch: he was a man of truth (and sincerity), (and) a Prophet:
19:57. And We raised him to a lofty station.
19:58. Those were some of the Prophets on whom “I AM” did bestow His Grace,- of the posterity of Adam, and of those who We carried (in the Ark) with Noah, and of the posterity of Abraham and Israel (formerly known as Jacob)- of those whom We guided and chose. Whenever the Signs of (“I AM”) Most Gracious were rehearsed to them, they would fall down in prostrate adoration and in tears.

Sura 21:85-86
21:85. And (remember) Ishmael, Enoch, and Ezekiel, all (men) of constancy and patience;
21:86. We admitted them to Our mercy: for they were of the Righteous ones.

Sura 38:45-48
38:45. And commemorate Our Servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, possessors of Power and Vision.
38:46. Verily We did choose THEM for a SPECIAL (purpose)- proclaiming the Message of the Hereafter.

38:47. They were, in Our sight, truly, of the company of the Elect and the Good.
38:48. And commemorate Ishmael, Elisha (1 kings 19:19), and Ezekiel: Each of them was of the Company of the Righteous.

Was Ishmael substituted for the Bible prophet Samuel in the four verses cited above? Sura 19:54 says “he was (strictly) true to what he promised” which is a perfect description of the vow (promise) of the Nazarite (to truth) that Samuel took. Samuel was given favour above the nations in anointing the kings of Israel. And Samuel is also indirectly referenced in Sura 2:246-248, as a Chief of the Children of Israel, and in relation to The Ark of The Covenant.

Ishmael (Arabic: إسماعيل, romanized: ʾismāʿīl)
pronounced: “Is.ma’eel”
Hebrew name meaning: “God will hear”

Samuel (Arabic: صموئيل, romanized: Samū’ēl)
pronounced: “Sam.wa’eel”
Hebrew name meaning: “God has heard”

Doesn’t the evidence above unequivocally reveal that Ishmael was added to some verses (Sura 2:136, 2:140, 3:84, 4:163), and in four others (Sura 6:86, 19:54, 21:85, 38:48) “God will hear” (Ishmael) was maliciously substituted for “God has heard” (Samuel)? Isn’t this precisely what was done in Sura 2:125 and 2:127, where Ishmael was very obviously substituted for Isaac, to support the impossibleAbraham-Ishmael-Kaba-in-Mecca” farce?

With the Ishmael additions and substitutions removed:-
(so that these verses/ayats agree in context and with the rest of Scripture – Sura 39:23)

Sura 2:136. Say ye: “We believe in God, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes [of Israel], and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord: we make no difference between one and another of them: and we yield our wills to God’s Will (as they all said and did).”

Sura 2:140. Or do ye say that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the [twelve] Tribes were Jews or Christians?” Say: “Do ye know better than God?” Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from God? But God is NOT unaware of what ye do!

Sura 3:84. Say: “We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob-Israel, and the (twelve) Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord: we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to God do we bow our will.”

Sura 4:163. We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: We sent inspiration to Abraham; Isaac; Jacob-Israel and the (twelve) Tribes (of Israel); to Aaron; Job; Solomon son of David; Jonah; Jesus; and to David We gave the Psalms (in the Old Covenant/Testament. Note well Psalm 22).

Sura 6:86. And Elisha (1 kings 19:19) and Samuel (Wisdom 46:13-15), and Jonah, and Lot: and to all We gave favour above the nations:

Sura 19:54. Also mention in the Book (the story of) Samuel: he was (strictly) true to what he promised (Numbers 6:1-8), and he was an Apostle (and) a Prophet (1 Sam. 3:20).

Sura 21:85. And (remember) Samuel (1 Sam. 2:26), Enoch (Gen. 5:22), and Ezekiel (Ezek. 24:24), all (men) of constancy and patience;

Sura 38:48. And commemorate Samuel (Jer. 15:1), Elisha (1 kings 19:19), and Ezekiel (Wisdom 49:8-9): Each of them was of the Company of the Righteous.

Notes about Samuel in the Bible that fit the descriptions in the Koran/Quran:-

Samuel was a Nazarite (a strict vow/promise to God/Truth):

1 Samuel 1:11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O “I AM” Lord of hosts, if Thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of Thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget Thine handmaid, but wilt give unto Thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the “I AM” all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head (Numbers 6).

Samuel earned the favour of both Father and men:-

1 Samuel 2:26 And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the “I AM”, and also with men.

Father made Samuel a Prophet:

1 Samuel 3:20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel [was] established [to be] a Prophet of the “I AM”.

Father made Samuel a judge of Israel:

1 Samuel 7:15 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life.

Samuel anointed the kings of Israel at Father’s Command:

1 Samuel 9:16-17
9:16 To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him [to be] captain over My people Israel, that he may save My people out of the hand of the Philistines: for I have looked upon My people, because their cry is come unto Me.
9:17 And when Samuel saw Saul, the “I AM” said unto him, Behold the man whom I spoke to thee of! this same shall reign over My people.

1 Samuel 12:1 And Samuel said unto all Israel, Behold, I have hearkened unto your voice in all that ye said unto me, and have made a king over you.

Samuel was constant and patient throughout his life, despite all the wickedness Israel did, including choosing an earthly king over Father (1 Sam. 8):

1 Samuel 12:20-22
12:20 And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the “I AM”, but serve the “I AM” with all your heart;
12:21 And turn ye not aside: for [then should ye go] after worthless [things], which cannot profit nor deliver; for they [are] worthless.
12:22 For the “I AM” will not forsake His people for His great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the “I AM” to make you His people.

Wisdom 46:13-20
46:13. Samuel, the Prophet of the Lord, beloved by His Lord, established a kingdom, and anointed princes over His people.
46:14. By The Law of the Lord he judged the congregation, and the Lord had respect unto Jacob.
46:15. By his faithfulness he was found a TRUE Prophet, and by his word he was known to be faithful in vision.
46:16. He called upon the mighty Lord, when his enemies pressed upon him on every side, when he offered the sucking lamb.
46:17. And the Lord thundered from heaven, and with a great noise made His voice to be heard.
46:18. And he destroyed the rulers of the Tyrians, and all the princes of the Philistines.
46:19. And before his long sleep he made protestations in the sight of the Lord and His anointed, I have not taken any man’s goods, so much as a shoe: and no man did accuse him.
46:20. And after his death he prophesied, and showed the king his end, and lifted up his voice from the earth in Prophecy, to blot out the wickedness of the people.

Jeremiah 15:1 Then said the “I AM” unto me, Even if Moses and Samuel stood before Me, [still] My mind [could] not [be] toward this people: cast [them] out of My sight, and let them go forth.

Hebrews 11:32-33
11:32 And what shall I more say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and [of] Barak, and [of] Samson, and [of] Jephthah; [of] David also, and Samuel, and [of] the Prophets:
11:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

As with all vain attempts to tamper with God’s Word, the Truth eventually reveals the inconsistencies these crimes create.

These errors have very fortunately been corrected in the King of kings’ Bible, which includes the Old Covenant, New Covenant and Koran, fully cross-referenced for the first time in human history to help gather the “Elect” before Judgment Day.

Can YOU handle the Truth and find The Way home?

The Medina Myth

20 May

by A. Freeman, contributing writer

According to the “Islamic tradition” (hadith), Muhammad and his followers journeyed from Mecca (which doesn’t appear on any map of the Arabian peninsula until the 10th century AD) to Medina during a 12-day “hijra” (migration), c. 622 AD. But is any of that true?

One retelling of the fabled migration to Medina, “which marked the greatest moment in the history of Islam”, may be found at the following link:-

The Hijrah – The Emigration of the Prophet from Mecca to Medina

There are currently three (3) references to the proper noun “Medina” in most translations of the Koran/Quran (with some translations parenthetically adding more), none of which directly mention any of the details found in the story linked above. Please find them below:

Sura 9:101. Certain of the desert Arabs round about you are hypocrites, as well as (desert Arabs) among the Medina folk: they are obstinate in hypocrisy: thou knowest them not: We know them: twice shall We punish them: and in addition shall they be sent to a grievous Penalty.

Sura 9:120. It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighbourhood, to refuse to follow “I AM”‘s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his: because nothing could they suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness,- whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue, or hunger, in the Cause of “I AM”, or trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers, or received any injury whatever from an enemy: for “I AM” suffereth not the reward to be lost of those who do good;-

Sura 63:8. They say, “If we return to Medina, surely the more honourable (element) will expel therefrom the meaner.” But honour belongs to “I AM” and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not.

Looking at each occurrence individually in the allegedly original Arabic (m-d-n), the triliteral root mīm dāl nūn (م د ن) occurs 17 times in the Quran, in two derived forms:

  • three times as the noun madāin (مَدَآئِن)
  • 14 times as the nominal madīnat (مَدِينَة)

Source: corpus.quran.com

So the very same word which is usually translated as “the city” is randomly translated as “the Medina” 3 out of 14 times (Sura 9:101, 120 and 63:8)? Was this intentional mistranslation a shameless attempt to invent the Mecca-Medina “migration” myth?

The Roman Catholic church (RCC) did the same thing with the Hebrew name “David” in Ezekiel 34:23 and Ezekiel 37:24-25. David means “Well-Beloved” in English. Leaving that word untranslated renders those verses nonsensical, as David had already been dead for hundreds of years when those passages were given to Ezekiel to write.

Did a city named Medina even exist during Muhammad’s lifetime? No. Pretending Medina had some ancient, alternate name is an overt admission of that fact. And who refers to the name of a city as “the New York” or “the London”? Shouldn’t the exact same word be translated exactly the same way every time?

Stating that someone is “of the city” (i.e. from an urban area) to distinguish them from someone who is not of the city (i.e. from a rural area, whether that be countryside, desert wilderness, or jungle, etc.), is a common practice. The verses also make much more sense when they are correctly translated.

Sura 9:101. Certain of the desert Arabs round about you are hypocrites, as well as (desert Arabs) among the city folk: they are obstinate in hypocrisy: thou knowest them not: We know them: twice shall We punish them: and in addition shall they be sent to a grievous Penalty.

Sura 9:120. It was not fitting for the people of the city and the Arabs of the neighbourhood, to refuse to follow “I AM”‘s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his: because nothing could they suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness,- whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue, or hunger, in the Cause of “I AM”, or trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers, or received any injury whatever from an enemy: for “I AM” suffereth not the reward to be lost of those who do good;-

Sura 63:8. They say, “If we return to the City*, surely the more honourable (element) will expel therefrom the meaner.” But honour belongs to “I AM” and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not.

*Note: in context,the City referenced in Sura 63:8 appears to be Jerusalem (Sura 2:126, Sura 6:92, Sura 42:7, Sura 90:1)

Please also note well: Yathrib” (Ethrib in the original Syriac) is NOT some ancient, alternate name for Medina, as the totally fabricated and self-contradictory hadith falsely claims. Yathrib/Ethrib refers to a tribe of people – specifically the Israelite tribe of Ephraim – rather than to a city that conveniently was named “the city”.

The infamous “Yathrib was renamed Medina by Muhammad when he moved there” fable was invented during the Abbasid dynasty (750-900 AD) in Baghdad (Babylon), when the entire collection of hadiths and the sira (seerah) were fabricated, as well as the Arabic language, to promote the newly minted organized religion now known as “Islam”.

The Arab empire, having witnessed the great consolidating power wielded by the Roman empire through its spread of “Christianity” (Roman Catholicism), needed their own Arab-specific organized religion to rival Rome. Of course that required a massive dose of historical revisionism, with new “holy” cities, temples, and pilgrimage sites, along with volumes of made up stories and traditions to try to tie it all together in an entertaining, “Arabizing” kind of way. The barren, uninhabited desert sands in the Hijaz provided just the clean slate the Arab empire needed to build the fictional foundation for “Islam”.

________________________________________________________________

Therefore, in actual fact, there isn’t one single mention of “the Medina” – or of the city of Mecca – found anywhere in the Koran (Quran), either directly or by implication.

Which means there are NO Meccan nor Medinan Surahs

________________________________________________________________

The reason the Medina myth is so desperately needed in the organized religion that deceitfully refers to itself as “Islam” is that without it, the references to “the Prophet” traveling with his fellow emigrants (muhajirs) and helpers (ansar), during their 40-year migration to the land God and His Messenger (Exodus 3:2, Rev. 1:1, Sura 4:157, Sura 7:158) promised them, would be immediately recognized as Moses and the Israelites during the EXODUS from Egypt to the Promised Land. Of course, in turn, the totally fabricated hadith and sira (seerah) would be dealt yet another death blow.

Sura 33:22. When the Believers (Joshua and Caleb – Num. 14:6-9) saw the Confederate forces (Num. 13:25-33), they said: “This is what “I AM” and His Messenger had promised us (the Promised LandGen. 12:7, 13:14-16, 15:7, 18-21, 17:7-8, 26:2-5, 50:24, Exod. 6:6-9, Lev. 20:24, Num. 27:12, Deut. 6:10-13), and “I AM” and His Messenger told us what was true.” And it only added to their faith and their zeal in obedience.

Once it’s correctly understood that neither Mecca nor Medina existed during the lifetime of Muhammad, it logically follows any reference to a Prophet leading a mass migration could not possibly be referring to Muhammad, Mecca or Medina.

The Koran/Quran repeatedly tells us it was sent to CONFIRM what came before it in the Bible (see: Sura 2:97-98, 3:1-3, 4:47, 5:51, 6:92-94, 6:154-157, 10:37, 12:111, 22:52, 35:31, 46:12, 61:6-7), which should motivate readers to logically seek explanations for the events described in the Koran from within the Old Covenant and New Covenant, rather than from the satanic “Islamic traditions” (Matt. 15:3, 9).

Removing the veil of Arab storytelling that dominates “Islam”, and applying this simple logic reveals easy-to-understand answers (Sura 54:17) to mysteries in the Koran that have baffled the so-called experts and scholars for centuries. For example, what about the Prophet, Emigrants and Helpers, and the three that were mercifully left behind in Sura 9:117-118?

Sura 9:117-118
9:117. “I AM” turned with favour to the Prophet (Moses), the Muhajirs (Emigrants), and the Ansar (Helpers – Num. 11:16-17),- who followed him in a time of distress, after that the hearts of a part of them had nearly swerved (from duty); but He turned to them (also): for He is unto them Most Kind, Most Merciful.
9:118. (He turned in mercy also) to the three who were left behind (Bezer, Ramoth and GolanDeut. 4:41-43); (the slayers felt guilty) to such a degree that the Earth seemed constrained to them, for all its spaciousness, and their (very) Souls (Beings) seemed straitened to them,- and they perceived that there is no fleeing from “I AM” (and no refuge) but to Himself. Then He turned to them, that they might repent: for “I AM” is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

Numbers 11:16-17 – the helpers (ansar)
11:16 And the “I AM” said unto Moses, Gather unto Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the Tabernacle of the Congregation, that they may stand there with thee.
11:17 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which [is] upon thee, and will put [it] upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people WITH THEE, that thou bear [it] not thyself alone.

Deuteronomy 4:41-43 – the three left behind
4:41 Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward the sunrising [East];
4:42 That the slayer might flee there, which should kill his neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing unto one of these cities he might live:
4:43 [Namely], Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, of the Manassites.

Could it be any more obvious that the referenced Prophet is Moses? It was by God’s Command that the 70 “helpers” were gathered from among the emigrants, to help Moses bear the burden of administering God’s Statutes, Judgments and Commandments to millions of emigrants, during their 40-year migration from Egypt to the Promised Land.

Nothing about the alleged 12-day migration of Muhammad and a couple of close friends can withstand even the most basic level of scrutiny, particularly when it’s correctly understood that there is zero scriptural, historical or archaeological evidence for any of it.

Who are the “Quraish”? They certainly are not some ancient, Arab tribe no one ever heard of, from a town that didn’t exist. Nor were they fighting against Muhammad who, according to the evidence in the Koran/Quran, was living near the Dead Sea.

There are many similar details about the exodus and the Prophet Moses (Sura 19:51) throughout Sura 33, as he led the Israelites and a mixed multitude (Exodus 12:37-38) through the desert wilderness, protected by God and His Angels against Pharoah and his army, and later against the Confederate forces that occupied Canaan (Numbers 13:27-29).

Sura 33:6. The Prophet (Moses) is closer to the Believers than their own “selves”, and his wives are their mothers**. Blood-relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Decree of “I AM”, than (the Brotherhood of) Believers and EMIGRANTS: nevertheless do ye what is just to your neighbours (Lev. 19:18 , Mark 12:31): such is the writing in the Decree (of “I AM”).

**Note: If Muhammad is NOT the father of ANY of your men (Sura 33:40), then how could his wives be the mothers of the Brotherhood of Believers? Clearly Sura 33:6 cannot be referring to Muhammad. Is it not obvious that it instead is referring to Moses and his TWO wives (the Midianite Zipporah, and the Ethiopian woman – Exod. 2:21, Num. 12:1, Sura 66:1-4)?

Sura 33 confirms multiple events from the Exodus in detail, based on the Biblical record found in Exodus 14, Numbers 1-3, Numbers 12-14 and Psalm 78, where the Prophet is indeed Moses, leading the Israelite emigrants through the midst of the Red Sea at God’s Command and with God’s Help and Protection (exactly as described in Exodus 14), and on through the wilderness of Sin, to the Promised Land. An in-depth study of Sura 33 with the above in mind should be eye-opening, recognizing some of the terms have been left untranslated and/or have been intentionally mistranslated, to promote the hadith-driven Medina myth among numerous other make-believe stories fraudulently attributed to Muhammad.

The answers to ALL of mankind’s problems, sicknesses and confusion are found in The Law that God gave us via His Prophet/Servant Moses on Mt. Horeb in Sinai. Remember? That is the core message that God has repeatedly sent down through the ages via His Angels, His Apostles/Messengers and His Prophets, as recorded throughout the Old Covenant, New Covenant and Koran (Sura 9:107-111).

Within that message coming down from God out of heaven there is SALVATION and The City (l-madīnati) of Light to which the final exodus/migration and gathering will be.

Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the Holy City, “New Jerusalem”, coming DOWN from God OUT OF HEAVEN, prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 21:22-23
21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb (His Messenger) are The Temple of it.
21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the Light thereof.

This is The Straight Way home (John 17:3, Sura 46:30). All other roads lead to The Fire.
