The Prophet Muhammad [S.A.A.W]
Bismillaah ir Rahmaan ir Rahiim. As salaamu 'alaikum.
The disciples said: "O master, it is written in the Book of Moses, that the promise was made in Isaac." Jesus answered with a groan: "It is so written, but Moses did not write it, nor Joshua, but rather our rabbins, who do not fear God! Truly I say to you, that if you consider the words of the angel Gabriel, you shall discover the malice of our scribes and doctors. For the angel said: "Abraham, all the world shall know how God loves you; but how shall the world know the love that you bear to God? Assuredly it is necessary that you do something for love of God." Abraham answered: 'Behold the servant of God, ready to do all that which God shall will.'
Then spoke God, saying to Abraham: "Take your son, your firstborn Ishmael;, and come up the mountain to sacrifice him." How is Isaac firstborn, if when Isaac was born Ishmael was seven years old? Then said the disciples: "Clear is the deception of our doctors: therefore tell us you the truth, because we know that you are sent from God." Then answered Jesus: "Truly I say to you, that Satan ever seeks to annul the laws of God; and therefore he with his followers, hypocrites and evil-doers, the former with false doctrine, the latter with lewd living, to day have contaminated almost all things, so that scarcely is the truth found. Woe to the hypocrites! for the praises of this world shall turn for them into insults and torments in hell.
"I therefore say to you that the Messenger of God is a splendour that shall give gladness to nearly all that God has made, for he is adorned with the spirit of understanding and of counsel, the spirit of wisdom and might, the spirit of fear and love, the spirit of prudence and temperance, he is adorned with the spirit of charity and mercy, the spirit of justice and Piety, the spirit of gentleness and patience, which he has received from God three times more than he has given to all his creatures.
O blessed time, when he shall come to the world! Believe me that I have seen him and have done him reverence, even as every prophet has seen him: seeing that of his spirit God gives to them prophecy. And when I saw him my soul was filled with consolation, saying: "O Muhammad;, God be with you, and may he make me worthy to untie, your shoelatchet;, for obtaining this I shall be a great prophet and holy one of God." And having said this, Jesus rendered his thanks to God." The Gospel Of Barnabas
Chapter 44 Jesus [PBUH] gives tribute to Muhammad [PBUH] The Messenger of GOD, and teaches that Ishmael [PBUH] is first born of Prophet Abraham [PBUH]. And that it was Ishmael [PBUH] who was taken to be sacrificed. Genesis 22, of the Bible, is not in agreement with those facts. The Holy Qur'an, 37:112 supports this truth: after the rescinded 'trial of sacrifice' of Ishmael [37:100-111] verse 112 declares: "And We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous." Al-Qur'an, 037.112 (As-Saaffat [Those who set the Ranks, Drawn Up in Ranks]).
This gospel [by Barnabas] differs as to the counting, of the ages of Ishmael and Isaac. It states that Ishmael was 7 years old at the time of the birth of Isaac. Abram [PBUH] was 86 years old at the time of the birth of Ishmael (Genesis 16:11), and Abraham [PBUH] was 100 years old at the time of the birth of Isaac (Genesis 21:5), this would make Ishmael about 14 years old at the time of the birth of Isaac. Satan, attempts [relating to this gospel, other Scripture, and the Bible] to make inoperative / ineffective, (to annul) the Laws of Allaah; The Judge, The Humiliator, The Retarder. In present time's the Satan and his hypocrite, evil doing, filthy, lustful followers of false doctrine, and lewd living have tried, but have been unable to corrupt - The Guarded Book - The Book of Wisdom; The Holy Qur'an of THE ONE AND ONLY GOD, The Sovereign, The Subtle. It is obvious that the hands of the Satan and his followers have tampered with this very Gospel of Barnabas.
37:100. "O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!"
37:101. So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.
37:102. Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if Allah so wills one practising Patience and Constancy!"
37:103. So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah), and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),
37:104. We called out to him "O Abraham!
37:105. "Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" - thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
37:106. For this was obviously a trial-
37:107. And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice:
37:108. And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times:
37:109. "Peace and salutation to Abraham!"
37:110. Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
37:111. For he was one of our believing Servants.
37:112. And We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous. Yusuf Ali's Quran Translation
The Remembrance of Allah, The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful, is Life's Greatest Blessing.
To Be Or Not To Be, That Is The Question?
