Chapter : Verse.

(Information in brackets is added to assist readers in the interpretation of the verse).

 

Quran 2:0 Verse 2:0 In the name of God, The Most Kind, The Most Merciful. 

 

Quran 2:1 Verse 2:1 A.L.M. (ALIF LAM MIM)

 

Quran 2:2 Verse 2:2 This (Quran) is the book of guidance for those (people) who fear and obey (love) God.

 

Quran 2:3 Verse 2:3 Who believe in the unseen (by having faith in what God has revealed) and (who) keep up prayer and give charity from what We (God) have provided for them.

 

Quran 2:4 Verse 2:4 And who believe in that which has been revealed to you (Prophet Muhammad) and that which was revealed before you (to Prophet Moses Musa in the Torah Taurat and to Prophet Jesus Isa in the Gospel Injil and to the other prophets) and firmly believe in the hereafter.

Comment 1. God guide me on the right path.

Quran chapter 1 is said in 5 daily prayers by every Muslim 17 times each day asking God to guide us on the right path.

Comment 2. The right path is to believe all the Books of God.

In Quran chapter 2:4 God answers our prayer and tells us that we must believe what is in the Quran and what God revealed before the Quran in the writings of the Torah Taurat and the Prophets (The Old Testament, the Old Bible, the Hebrew Bible, the Jewish Bible) and in the Gospel (The New Testament, the New Bible, the Christian Bible).

Comment 3. See Quran 2:5 comments.

 

Quran 2:5 Verse 2:5 They are on the right path and they shall be successful (in the hereafter).

Comment 1. Believe what is in the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran Quran.

God tells humans in Quran 2:4 to believe what you read in the Quran and the Torah and the Gospel and in Quran 2:5 God says about those humans They are on the right path and they shall be successful (in the hereafter).”

Comment 2. No one can change the word of God.

Some people do not believe the word of God in the Quran.

Some people do not believe the word of God in the Torah Taurat.

Some people do not believe the word of God in the Gospel Injil.

The word of God is protected by God so that no one can claim in the hereafter that they were misled by the word of God in the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran.

God protects His (God’s) word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran then no revelation could be trusted.


Quran 30:30 Verse 30:30 So direct yourself (Prophet Muhammad) towards the religion (the belief in one creator) for which He (God who is the one and only creator) has created (religion) for humans. No one can alter what God has created (in religion, in the Torah Taurat, the Gospel Injil and the Koran Quran). That is the right religion (belief), but most people do not know (this).


(1. Proof of God is the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran (Quran 30:30).

(2. No one has the power to change the word of God in the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran (Quran 30:30).

(3. The correct understanding of God is in understanding the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran (Quran 30:30).


Comment 3. The Muslim God and the Jewish God and the Christian God are the same one God who created the creation.

Quran 29:46 Verse 29:46 And do not argue with the People of the Scripture (the Jews and the Christians) except in the best way (by using good words and in a good manner), except with those of them that are wrongdoers. And say, “We (Muslims) believe in what has been revealed to us (Muslims in the Quran) and revealed to you (the Jews in your Torah Taurat and the Christians in your Gospel Injil). Our (Muslim) God and your (Jewish and Christian) God is (the same) one (God) and to Him (God, the creator of every creation) we have submitted (ourselves as believers in Him the one and only God).”


Comment 4. The Torah, Gospel and Quran support each other because they are from God.

The Torah, Gospel and Koran are from one God.

The Taurat, Injil and Quran are from one God.


See 1. The Torah, Gospel and Koran are from one God.

If the Torah Taurat is not protected then in the hereafter Jews could say they were misled by a Book that was not protected.

If the Gospel Injil is not protected then in the hereafter Christians could say they were misled by a Book that was not protected.

If the Koran Quran is not protected then in the hereafter Muslims could say they were misled by a Book that was not protected.

The Torah, Gospel and Quran are from one God.

The Taurat, Injil and Quran are from one God.

God protects all his books so in the hereafter no Jew or Christian or Muslim can say their Book misled them.

Quran 2:17 Verse 2:17 They (the hypocrites who say one thing but they believe the opposite thing) are like the person that lights a fire and when the light is around them (they say they have faith and understanding), then God takes away their light and leaves them in darkness (because they have no faith) so they cannot see (they cannot understand).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:13 comments).

 

Quran 2:18 Verse 2:18 They (the hypocrites who say one thing but they believe the opposite thing) are deaf (they cannot hear “understand” the truth from the messenger of God), dumb (they cannot speak the truth), and blind (they cannot see the true path to God’s guidance) and (they) cannot return (to the right path of God’s guidance).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:13 comments).

 

Quran 2:19 Verse 2:19 Like a rainstorm from the sky within which is darkness (disbelief in God), thunder (the threat of punishment) and lightning (the clear revelations of God), they (the hypocrites who say one thing but they believe the opposite of what they say) put their fingers in their ears (they do not listen) against the thunder (the threat of punishment) for fear of death (by leaving the guidance of God). God (the one with all knowledge and power) encompasses those without faith (in God, no one can escape from God).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:13 comments).

 

Quran 2:20 Verse 2:20 The lightning almost takes away their sight from them (the hypocrites who say one thing but they believe the opposite thing). Whenever it (the Quran) lights (the path) they (can see briefly and they say they have faith and) they walk (a few steps) but when it becomes dark (because of something they do not want to hear) they standstill (because they have no real faith). If God willed He (God) could have taken away their hearing and their sight (as He took away their ability to hear the truth and their ability to see the true path to God’s guidance). God has power over all things.

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:13 comments).

 

Quran 2:21 Verse 2:21 O humans, worship your Lord (God), who created you and (created) those (humans) before you so that you may fear and obey Him (God, by doing right and avoiding wrong).

 

Quran 2:22 Verse 2:22 God is the one who has made the earth a resting place for you and made the sky like a canopy and (who) causes water to pour down from the sky to produce fruits as food for you. So do not worship (do not pray to) idols or (so called) partners (of God such as prophets, sons, mothers, saints etc) as equals to God (now that you know God is the creator and the only one with the power to hear prayer).

(Comment 1. Who has the power to hear prayer?

God is the only one with the power to hear prayer.

The prophets of God, the sons of God, the mothers of God, the saints of God, the dead, the devil, idols, the stars, the Moon and the Sun are all creations of God.

The creations of God cannot hear prayer.

Prayer is a special power that can only be heard by God, the creator.

Prayer to anyone other than God is called idol worship).

(Comment 2. Those that are not grateful to God for being created by Him are misled to worship the things that God created such as the Sun, the stars, the Moon and misled to worship the humans and other creatures that God created such as saints, prophets, devils, angels, wooden idols, stone idols etc. but all these things where created by God, they are not God so they have no power to hear prayer.

(Comment 3. God created the human from dust, water and clay for the purpose of worshipping (praying) only to Him (God).

(Comment 4. God created the jinn from smokeless fire for the purpose of worshipping (praying) only to Him (God).

(Comment 5. Only God the creator has the power to hear prayer because God is the one that created everyone for the one purpose of worshipping (praying and praising and thanking) only Him (God).

(Comment 6. The creator created every creation.

Who is more deserving of prayer than your creator?

No one but the creator has the power to hear prayer.

  

Quran 2:23 Verse 2:23 And if you are in doubt concerning that which We (God through Angel Gabriel Jibril) have revealed to Our servant (Prophet Muhammad) then produce a chapter like it (the Quran) and call your witnesses (and the gods you mistakenly worship) other than God (the creator of every creation) if you are truthful (in your belief that the Quran is invented by a human).

 

Quran 2:24 Verse 2:24 But if you cannot do it and you never shall, then guard yourself against the fire and stones prepared in the hereafter (as punishment) for those without faith (in God).


Quran 2:25 Verse 2:25 And give the good news to those who believe and who do good deeds that they shall have gardens in which rivers flow in Paradise. Every time they are given a fruit (to eat in Paradise) they shall say, “This is what was given to us before” and it will be like it (like the food they enjoyed before on the Earth) and they shall live forever with purified (sinless) companions in Paradise (where human souls will have no menstruation, no stool, no urine and no sweat).

 

Quran 2:26 Verse 2:26 From God come stories that give guidance, these are stories about things as small as a mosquito to stories about larger things and those who believe know it is the truth from God but those who have no faith say, “What does God want to teach us in this story?” (Meaning- “What use is there in this story?”) By this He (God) causes many to go on the wrong path and many He (God) guides to the right path. The people who are misled (on the wrong path) are those people who are disobedient to God.

(Comment 1. What does truth mean?

Truth means these are not invented stories.

Truth means these are the stories inspired by belief in God.

Truth means these stories can be found in the Books of God, the Torah Taurat Jewish Bible and the Gospel Injil Christian Bible.

Quran 26:196 Verse 26:196 It (the revelations from God in the Quran) is (also) in the Scriptures of the people of the past (in the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil). 
Quran 41:43 Verse 41:43 Nothing is said (by God) to you (Prophet Muhammad) except what has already been said to the messengers before you. Your Lord (God) is the possessor of forgiveness and severe punishment.

 

Quran 2:27 Verse 2:27 Those who break the laws of God’s covenant (agreement) after accepting them, and who stop doing what God ordered them to do and who misbehave on the earth, they are the losers (in the hereafter).

(Comment 1. Punishment for Apostasy is from God not from humans for the apostate who made no crime and did not fight Muslims.

In the Quran God ordered freedom of religious belief 1400 years before the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

However incorrect understanding of the Quran and the hadith can cause wrongful killing of people in the name of God and in the name of human hadith stories.

Yuri Gagarin from the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialists Republics) was the first man to orbit the Earth in a spacecraft in 1380 AH (12 April 1961). The USSR has separated to become many independent countries such as Russia, the Ukraine and others).

The first man to walk on the Moon was Neil Armstrong from the USA in 1389AH (20 July 1969).

Twelve humans from the USA have walked on the Moon.

Quran 2:30 Verse 2:30 And (Prophet Muhammad) when your Lord (God) said to the angels, "I am going to place a caretaker (humans) on the earth," they (the angels) said (out of curiosity), "Shall You (God) place on the earth those who shall misbehave and shed blood (as a result of giving them free will) while we (the angels who never disobey God, continue to) glorify You (God) with praises and thanks? He (God) said, "I (God) know what you (the angels) do not know (about My plan to give humans the ability to gain knowledge with kindness and gain wisdom with mercy and reward those humans who follow the example of forgiveness and mercy that God has given to them)."

Comment 1. What does “humans are created in the image of God” mean in the Torah Taurat?

Quran 1:3 Verse 1:3 The Most Kind and The Most Merciful. 

God decreed that humans would have the ability to gain knowledge with kindness and gain wisdom with mercy which in the hereafter would benefit those who were righteous.

God has given to each human a portion of kindness and mercy.
It is the ability of humans and other creatures to show kindness and mercy that is said to be in the image of God or in the example of God or in the way of God. 

Comment 2. The Torah Taurat confirms the Gospel Injil and the Koran Quran.

Torah Exodus 20:12 You must not murder (kill). 

Torah Leviticus 19:16 ... Don't stand idly by when you can save a life: I am the LORD (God). 


Jewish Hebrew Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5, Babylonian Talmud Tractate Sanhedrin 37a Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered (by God) as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered (by God) as if he saved an entire world.

(Note 1. In the sight of God the saving of one human life is a great deed because in the sight of God it is like saving every human life on the earth. 


Torah Genesis 18:24 If there are fifty innocent people in the city, will you destroy the whole city? Won't you spare it in order to save the fifty? 

Torah Genesis 18:25 Surely you won't kill the innocent with the guilty. That's impossible! You can't do that. If you did, the innocent would be punished along with the guilty. That is impossible. The judge of all the earth has to act justly.” 

Torah Genesis 18:26 The Lord (God) answered, “If I find fifty innocent people in Sodom, I will spare the whole city for their sake.” 

Torah Genesis 18:27 Abraham Ibrahim spoke again: “Please forgive my boldness in continuing to speak to you, Lord (God). I am only a man and have no right to say anything. 

Torah Genesis 18:28 But perhaps there will be only forty-five innocent people instead of fifty. Will you destroy the whole city because there are five too few?”

The Lord (God) answered, “I will not destroy the city if I find forty-five innocent people.”

Torah Genesis 18:29 Abraham Ibrahim spoke again: “Perhaps there will be only forty.”

He (God) replied, “I will not destroy it if there are forty.”

Torah Genesis 18:30 Abraham Ibrahim said, “Please don't be angry, Lord (God), but I must speak again. What if there are only thirty?”

He (God) said, “I will not do it if I find thirty.”

Torah Genesis 18:31 Abraham Ibrahim said, “Please forgive my boldness in continuing to speak to you, Lord (God). Suppose that only twenty are found?”

He (God) said, “I will not destroy the city if I find twenty.”

Torah Genesis 18:32 Abraham Ibrahim said, “Please don't be angry, Lord (God), and I will speak only once more. What if only ten are found?”

He (God) said, “I will not destroy it (the city) if there are ten (innocent people).” 

Torah Genesis 18:33 After he had finished speaking with Abraham Ibrahim, the Lord (God) went away, and Abraham Ibrahim returned home. 

(Note 1. In the Torah Taurat human actions that will result in the sudden killing of innocent people together with wrongdoers is not acceptable in the eyes of God.

Comment 3. The Gospel Injil confirms the Torah Taurat and the Koran Quran.

Gospel of Mark 10:43 (Jesus Isa says to his people. Leaders of the people think they are great but this is) not so among you (the people who follow Jesus Isa). Instead, whoever wants to be great among you (the people) must be (a person who is) your servant (serving all the people),

(Note 1. The greatest person among humans is the person who puts them self and their interests last by being a servant that helps all people.


Gospel of Mark 10:44 and whoever wants to be first (with the best behaviour) among you (humans) shall be slave (a servant) of all (people). 

(Note 2. The best human behaviour is the giving of your life to serve all humans. 


Gospel of Matthew 19:17 ... But if you want to enter eternal life, keep the commandments." 

Gospel of Matthew 19:18 He says to him (Jesus Isa), "Which ones?" And Jesus Isa said to him, "Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 


Gospel of Matthew 26:52 Jesus Isa then says to him, "Return your sword to its place. For all who take up the sword will perish by the sword. 


Catechism of the Catholic Church 2258 "Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being." 


Catechism of the Catholic Church 2261 Scripture specifies the prohibition contained in the fifth commandment (you shall not kill): "Do not slay the innocent and the righteous." The deliberate murder of an innocent person is gravely contrary to the dignity of the human being, to the golden rule, and to the holiness of the Creator. The law forbidding it is universally valid: it obliges each and everyone, always and everywhere. 


Catechism of the Catholic Church 2268 The fifth commandment (you shall not kill) forbids direct and intentional killing as gravely sinful. The murderer and those who cooperate voluntarily in murder commit a sin that cries out to heaven for vengeance.

Comment 4. The  Koran Quran confirms the Gospel Injil and the Torah Taurat.

Quran 4:29 Verse 4:29 All you who believe, do not unjustly take the wealth of each other, but trade by mutual consent; and do not destroy yourselves (do not kill yourself, do not commit suicide, do not kill each other). God is Merciful to you.


Quran 5:32 Verse 5:32 For this reason (that for the first time a human killed another human) We (God) ordered the children of Israel (through the inspiration of the teachers of the Jewish Talmud) that whoever kills a person it is as if that person killed all of humankind (to warn humans against the great evil of killing one human life so that humans understand the great value and preciousness of one human life) unless it is in retaliation for murder or for misbehaviour in the land. And whoever saves a life it is as if that person has saved all of humankind (to teach humans the great goodness in the saving of one human life so that humans understand the great value and preciousness of one human life). Our (God’s) messengers came to them (the children of Israel) with clear arguments but still after that (inspiration of the teachers of the Jewish Talmud) many of them (among the children of Israel) continued to commit great crimes (by killing humans unlawfully) in the land (so this is a message from God to the human not to commit the great crime of killing human life but instead to work to save human life). 

(Note 1. God’s order in Quran 5:32 to the children of Israel is based on the first murder on the earth which occurred long before the children of Israel existed. This law of God applies to all humans in all times because God regards one human life as equal to every human life that God has created and it is for God to judge on the Day of Judgement what each person did in the life that God gives to each person. 


Quran 6:151 Verse 6:151 Say, “Come, I shall recite to you what your Lord (God) has made a sacred duty for you: ... And that you do not kill a person because God has forbidden killing except in the matter of (legal) justice. He (God) has commanded this for you so that you may understand (the law of God).


Quran 48:25 Verse 48:25 They (the stone idol worshippers of Mecca Makkah Arabia today Saudi Arabia) are the ones who disbelieved (in God) and turned you (Prophet Muhammad) away from the Sacred Mosque (Al-Masjid-al-Haram in Mecca Makkah) and your offerings (of 70 camels to God for the feeding of the poor which) were prevented from reaching their place of sacrifice. (You would have been allowed to enter Mecca Makkah and fight for the sake of God to worship God at God’s Sacred Mosque in Mecca Makkah) if it were not that there were believing men and women who you did not know that you may have trampled (with your offerings of 70 camels that would have killed both the believers who you did not know and the non believers because of a stampede by those animals caused by fighting that God knew would occur) and so unknowingly you would have an evil deed against you(However God stopped you from entering Mecca Makkah) so that God might bring to His (God’s) mercy whom He (God) willed (by preventing you from making sin through your actions which would have killed innocent people). If they (the believers who you did not know and the wrongdoers who had sinned against God) had been apart (so that only the wrongdoers who had sinned against God were present) then We (God) would have punished those of them who disbelieved with a painful punishment (by allowing you into Mecca Makkah and allowing the animal stampede to occur to punish the stone idol worshippers who forbid your worship of God at the Sacred Mosque Al-Masjid-al-Haram in Mecca Makkah).

(Note 1. In the Koran Quran human actions that will result in the sudden killing of innocent people together with wrongdoers is not acceptable in the eyes of God. 

 

Quran 2:31 Verse 2:31 And He (God) taught Adam the names of all the things and then He (God) showed those things to the angels and said (to the angels), "Truthfully tell Me (God) the names of these things."

 

Quran 2:32 Verse 2:32 Then the angels said, “Glory be to You (God), we have no knowledge except what You (God) have taught us. Truly only You (God) are all knowing and all wise."

 

Quran 2:33 Verse 2:33 God said, “O Adam, tell them (tell the angles) the names of these things” and when he (Adam) said their names, God said (to the angels) “Did I (God) not tell you that I (God) know the unseen in the heavens and the earth and I (God) know what you reveal and what you conceal (meaning God knows all things)?"  

 

Quran 2:34 Verse 2:34 And when We (God) said to the angels, “Prostrate (bow) yourselves in front of Adam” they prostrated (bowed) except Iblis (later known as Satan Shaitan) who refused because he was proud (arrogant) and (he) rejected faith (in God’s command).

(Comment 1. Satan Shaitan was arrogant because he believed he was superior to Adam.

Arrogance leads to misguidance because the arrogant follow their desires instead of following the example of God.

 

Quran 2:35 Verse 2:35 And We (God) said, "O Adam, you and your wife (Eve Hawa) shall live in the garden of Paradise and (you can) eat freely wherever you want but do not come near this tree or you both shall be wrongdoers."  

 

Quran 2:36 Verse 2:36 But Satan caused (with God’s permission) them (Adam and Eve Hawa to have their faith in God tested after they were warned not to go to the tree) to slip (to sin and fall) from Paradise and We (God) said “Go down as enemies between yourselves (Satan Shaitan and humans) and Earth shall be your home with provisions where you shall live for a time.”

 

Quran 2:37 Verse 2:37 Then Adam received from his Lord words (of guidance) and his Lord (God) forgave him. Truly God is the One who forgives and He (God) is the Most Merciful. 

(Comment 1. The first time God forgave human sin was in the time of Adam and Eve Hawa. 

Adam was the first human and he disobeyed God.

God taught Adam how to ask for forgiveness and how to repent and Adam was forgiven by God.

As the first human to have talked with God he is the first Prophet because he is the first to carry God’s instructions to the first generation of humans.

(Comment 2. God forgave the great sin of Moses Musa and David Dawud.

Moses Musa killed a man in Egypt, and he asked God for forgiveness and he repented to God and was forgiven by God and later became God’s Prophet.

David Dawud committed adultery (the sin of ewe) and then arranged for the killing of the husband but he asked God for forgiveness and he repented to God and was forgiven by God and later became God’s Prophet.

(Comment 3. After Moses Musa came King David Dawud.

King David asked God to forgive his sin of adultery and murder.


Quran 38:24 Verse 38:24 (King David Dawud) said, “He has done wrong by demand your (one) ewe (female sheep) and adding it to his (ninety nine) ewes (female sheep). Many brothers (in religion) oppress one another except those who believe (in God) and do good deeds, and they are few. And then David Dawud understood that We (God) were telling (a story) about him (and what King David Dawud did to Uriah the Hittite and his wife Bath-sheba) and he (King David Dawud) asked forgiveness of his Lord (God) and he bowed (prostrating) and repented (to God for his sins).

 

Quran 38:25 Verse 38:25 So We (God) forgave him (King David Dawud) and he is near to Us (God’s mercy) and (for David Dawud there is) a happy place of return (to God and Paradise).

(Comment 4. The story of the ewe (the sin of adultery and murder).

In the story of the ewe (the sin of adultery), King David admits his sins to Prophet Nathan so King David had not yet been appointed a Prophet when he committed the sins of adultery and murder as described in the Torah Taurat and the prophets and the writings (Old Bible, Old Testament, Hebrew Bible, Jewish Bible) in Second Samuel 12:1 – 12:13 and 11.1 – 11:21.

 

Hebrew Bible 2 Samuel Chapter 12:9 (Prophet Nathan delivered God’s message and said to King David Dawud) Why have you despised the word of the LORD (God), to do that which is evil in My (God’s) sight? Uriah the Hittite you have killed with the sword, and his wife you have taken to be your wife, and him (Uriah the Hittite) you have killed with (by using) the sword of the children of Ammon.

 

Hebrew Bible 2 Samuel Chapter 12:13 And David Dawud said to Prophet Nathan: “I have sinned against the LORD (God).” And Prophet Nathan said to David Dawud: “The LORD (God) has put away your sin; you shall not die.”

Note 1. God forgave King David Dawud for adultery and murder.

God forgives King David Dawud for adultery and murder and God does not decree stoning to death for adultery and murder. Why?

King David Dawud sincerely asked for forgiveness from God and repented for his sins so God gave King David Dawud another punishment.

God uses the man who will later become God’s prophet to show humans how to ask God for forgiveness and how to repent for the sins of adultery and murder.

God shows humans that He (God) is truly the Most Merciful.

 

See 1. God forgives adultery.

God forgives illegal sexual intercourse.

Stoning to death for adultery cannot be found in the Koran Quran.

Today stoning to death for adultery is not in the religion of God.

Today stoning to death for adultery is not in the teachings of God.

In the Quran the law for illegal sexual intercourse for unmarried Muslims is Quran 4:15 – 4:18.

In the Quran the law for adultery by married Muslims is Quran 4:25 and 24:1 – 24:2.

Forgiveness for all sins including adultery is in Quran 4:17 – 4:18, 4:110, 25:68 – 25:71.

God reveals the punishment for adultery in Quran chapter 24 and explains why there is no death penalty for adultery.

In Quran chapter 24 God showed that in the time of Prophet Muhammad the people of Prophet Muhammad were not afraid to falsely accuse of adultery the wife of the Prophet of God.

God showed Prophet Muhammad that if his people in his time were not afraid to make false accusations against his wife then after the time of Prophet Muhammad the people would be afraid of no one in their making of false accusations for adultery.

Quran chapter 24 removes death for adultery and explains why it was removed by showing what happened to the wife of the Prophet of God.

The wife of the Prophet of God was saved only because Muhammad was a living Prophet under the guidance of God.

After Prophet Muhammad left the Earth who would protect the people from similar injustice?

God replaced stoning to death for adultery with the mercy of Quran chapter 24.

Some people follow what humans did in the past instead of following what God commands today in Quran chapter 24.

Those that claim Islam supports stoning to death for adultery have gone astray because no such thing exists in the Koran Quran.

Muslims who believe in stoning to death for adultery believe human hadith stories more than they believe the book of God, the Koran Quran.

In the same way Christians who believe that Jesus Isa is God believe human hadith stories more than they believe the book of God, the Gospel Injil.

Muslim believers and supporters of stoning to death for adultery are the followers of human stories not the followers of the stories of God.

In the same way Christian believers and supporters of the idea that Jesus Isa is God or a partner with God are also the followers of human stories not the followers of the stories of God.

When human hadith stories are believed more than the Books of God (the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran Quran) then the result is misguidance because you have trusted human stories more than you have trusted the stories of God.

On the day of Judgement the innocent will testify against their killer.

Quran 81:9 Verse 81:9 “For what crime were you (the baby girl) killed? (The baby girl shall say in the hereafter, “They killed me on the earth without a just reason”).

In the Quran the law for illegal sexual intercourse for unmarried Muslims is Quran 4:15 – 4:18.

In the Quran the law for adultery by married Muslims is Quran 4:25 and 24:1 – 24:2.

Forgiveness for all sins is confirmed in Quran 4:17 – 4:18, 4:110, 25:68 – 25:71.

(Comment 5. Only God is infallible.

The sin of mistakenly praying to what God created instead of correctly praying to God who is the creator of every creation.

In the Torah Taurat, the Gospel Injil and the Koran Quran God teaches humans not to make His (God’s) prophets into idols of worship or into infallible humans.

Only God is infallible and only God should be worshipped.

God teaches that after humans have made great sins God not only forgives genuine repentance but also gave some such people such as Moses and David the honour of becoming a prophet of God.

 

Quran 2:38 Verse 2:38 We (God) said, "Go out all of you (Adam and Eve Hawa and Satan Shaitan) from Paradise, then whenever there is guidance to you from Me (God) whoever follows My (God’s) guidance shall have no fear and shall not grieve (in the Hereafter).”

(Comment 1. The first time God promised returning humans back to eternal life was in the time of Adam and Eve Hawa. 

God forgave the first human sin as proof that God is the most merciful.

 

Quran 2:39 Verse 2:39 But those (like Satan Shaitan) who have no faith and deny Our (God’s) revelations shall live (forever) in fire in the hereafter.

 

Quran 2:40 Verse 2:40 O Children of Israel (the Jews, the Hebrews), remember My (God’s) favour when I (God) favoured you (by sending My revelations to you)? Fulfill the covenant (agreement) between you (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) and Me (God) and I (God) shall continue to fulfill our agreements and fear (no one but) Me (God).

(Comment 1. The promise of God to the Children of Israel.

God promises to fulfill his covenant (agreement) with the Children of Israel (the Jews, the Hebrews) if they also fulfill God’s covenant (agreement) in the Torah and fear only God.

 

Quran 2:41 Verse 2:41 And believe in what I (God) have revealed (in the Quran) that confirms what you already have (in the Torah, Old Bible, Old Testament) and do not be the first (of the people of the Book, the Jews of Yathrib Arabia today Medina Saudi Arabia) to disbelieve it (meaning, do not be the first to deny God’s revelations to Prophet Muhammad), and do not let go of My revelations (God’s word) for a little gain (meaning, do not reject God and the hereafter because of pride arrogance or jealousy in this first life). Keep your duty to Me (God).

Comment 1. God tells us that the Koran Quran confirms what is in the Torah Taurat.

This means that God has protected His Koran Quran and His Torah Taurat.

God protects His (God’s) word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran then no revelation could be trusted.

The Torah, Gospel and Quran support each other because they are from God.

See Quran 2:5 comments

 

Quran 2:42 Verse 2:42 And (Jews of Yathrib Arabia) do not mix up truth with falsehood and do not hid the truth (that Prophet Muhammad is a messenger of God) when you know it is true.

Quran 2:49 Verse 2:49 And remember when We (God) rescued you (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) from the people of the Pharaoh Firon (the King of Egypt) who gave you hard tasks and punishments, killing your sons and spared your women. This was a great trial (test) from your Lord (God).

 

Quran 2:50 Verse 2:50 And remember when We (God) separated the (Red) sea (between Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula) for you (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) and rescued you and drowned the followers of the Pharaoh Firon as you looked on.

 

Quran 2:51 Verse 2:51 And remember when We (God) appointed for Prophet Moses Musa forty nights and when he was away you (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) took a calf (as an idol) and worshipped it as your god and you did (this) great wrong.

Comment 1. See: Prophet Moses Musa, The Ten Commandments, the messenger Angel Samil, Samiri and the calf in the Koran Quran.

Quran 2:53 Verse 2:53 And remember when We (God) gave Prophet Moses Musa the Scripture (the Torah Taurat) of right and wrong so that you (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) would be rightly guided.

Comment 1. What would happen if God did not protect the Torah Taurat?

If God did not protect the Torah Taurat then no one with a Torah Taurat could use it to confirm the truthfulness of the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran because their words would be different.

Comment 2. What would happen in the hereafter if God did not protect the Torah Taurat?

If God did not protect the Torah Taurat then people in the Hereafter who received the Torah Taurat would say we did not believe the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran because their words were different to the Torah Taurat and we were promised that no one can change the word of God in the Torah Taurat.

Comment 3. God gave the Torah Taurat.

This means that God has protected His Torah Taurat.

God protects His (God’s) word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah or the Gospel or the Quran then no revelation could be trusted.

The Torah, Gospel and Quran support each other because they are from God.

See Quran 2:41 comments  


Quran 2:54 Verse 2:54 And remember when Prophet Moses Musa said to his people (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews), "My people, truly you have been wrong to worship the calf (the golden idol made in the image of a calf), so repent to your creator by killing (the guilty) yourselves, that shall be better for you in the sight of your Creator (God)." Then your Creator (God) forgave you, He (God) accepts repentance and He (God) is Most Merciful.

(Comment 1. The story of the punishment God ordered for those among the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews who worshipped the golden calf near Mount Sinai is remembered in the Old Bible, Old Testament, Hebrew Bible, Jewish Bible in Torah Exodus Chapter 32 Verses 19 – 28 and is confirmed in the Quran). 

(Comment 2. The stories of punishment from God are a lesson only, they are not an order for humans to copy.

Only God through His prophets had the right, wisdom and knowledge to give such punishments.

Today no one has the right, wisdom and knowledge to copy a punishment that only God and His prophets had the right to give.

(Comment 3. Today there are no more prophets of God who order such punishments because God today has given every human freedom to choose their religion (belief).

In the Quran God ordered freedom of religious belief 1400 years before the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

However incorrect understanding of the Quran and the hadith can cause wrongful killing of people in the name of God and in the name of human hadith stories.

(Comment 4. Today the word of God is in the Torah, Gospel and the Quran for all humans to consider and God’s judgement of each human shall come on the Day of Judgement.

See: The Golden Calf and the punishment of the guilty near Mount Sinai 3200 years ago http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/246635/jewish/The-Golden-Calf.htm 


Quran 2:55 Verse 2:55 And remember when you (some among the Children of Israel) said, "Prophet Moses Musa, we shall not believe you until we see God ourselves," so death took you as you tried to look (at God, after you were warned not to look at God). 

Comment 1. No one on Earth can look at God and live means no one on Earth can enter a site that God has made Holy for the purpose of communication with humans unless they have been invited to enter.

God is not a creation that the human eye can see.

To ask to see God invites idol worship of something that is a creation.

Prophet Moses Musa saw God not as a creation but in a special way which God makes known through angels.

Nothing that is a creation is God because God is the creator of every creation.


Torah Exodus 19:21 And the LORD (God) said to Prophet Moses Musa: 'Go down (from Mount Sinai) and warn the people in case they break through to gaze at the LORD (God), and many of them die.

Torah Exodus 19:22 And let the priests also, that come near to the LORD (God), sanctify themselves (make themselves Holy), in case the LORD (God) comes on them (with death).'

Torah Exodus 19:23 And Prophet Moses Musa said to the LORD (God): 'The people cannot come up to Mount Sinai; because you did warn us, saying: Set bounds around the mount (mountain), and sanctify it (make it Holy).'

Torah Exodus 19:24 And the LORD (God) said to him (Prophet Moses Musa): 'Go, down, and come back up, you, and Prophet Aaron Harun with you; but do not let the priests and the people break through (the boundary around the mountain) to come up to (gaze at) the LORD (God), in case He (God) comes upon them (with death).'

Torah Exodus 19:25 So Prophet Moses Musa went down to the people, and told them.


Comment 2. Jewish Rabbinical literature in 6th century Arabia in the Koran Quran.

Quran 2:55 and 2:56 is a story of the rabbis and teachers of the Jews of Yathrib Arabia which has been preserved in the Quran to reveal how some of the children of Israel disobeyed the warning not to go past the boundary around Mount Sinai to gaze at God.

God sometimes uses stories not in the Torah Taurat but in the Jewish Rabbinical literature of Arabia as a way of showing that the Quran is for all humans including the Jews of Yathrib Arabia who knew this story from their rabbis and teachers.

Jewish Rabbinical literature are the writings of Rabbis in Jewish hadith stories that answer questions not answered in the Torah Taurat.


Comment 3. Quran 2:55 and 2:56 explains why the people did not want to see God in Torah Exodus 20:15 after they had insisted they wanted to see God before they would believe Prophet Moses Musa.

Torah Exodus 20:15 And they (the children of Israel) said to Prophet Moses Musa: 'You speak with us, and we will hear; but do not let God speak with us, in case we die.'


Comment 4. In the Hereafter those granted Paradise will see God in a special way.

God will be visible in a special way in the Hereafter.

Quran 75:22 Verse 75:22 Some faces on that Day (of Resurrection and Judgement) shall be bright (with happiness).

Quran 75:23 Verse 75:23 Looking at their Lord (God). 


Comment 5. In the Hereafter those granted Hell will not see God.

God will be visible in a special way in the Hereafter.

Quran 2:174 Verse 2:174 Those (Jews of Yathrib, Medina, Arabia) who hide (during their arguments, discussions or teachings, something of) the Scripture that God revealed have exchanged it (the truth of God’s revelations) for a small price (of worldly gain such as profit, pride or fame because of arrogance, jealousy or dishonesty) and they fill their stomach with nothing but fire (evil). God shall not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection (because of God’s anger for what they said about God and His messengers), nor clean them (of their sins), and theirs shall be a painful punishment (in the hereafter). 


Quran 83:15 Verse 83:15 No (those stories of the past were not from people but were inspired in humans by God in the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil and the Koran Quran). On that Day (of Judgement) they (the wrongdoers) shall be partitioned from (the mercy of) their Lord (God, and they shall not be given the pleasure of seeing God’s mercy because they had no love of God and no fear of God and no belief in God).


5-1. What did some Jews in Yathrib Arabia say against God and His messengers?

Quran 3:181 Verse 3:181 (When the Muslims were collecting donations for the war effort against the stone idol worshippers from Makkah in defence of Yathrib Arabia today Medina Saudi Arabia) God surly heard the saying of (some of) those (Jews of Yathrib Arabia) who said, "God is poor and we are rich." We (God) shall record their saying and their (boasting of their) wrongful killing of the prophets and We (God) shall say (to them in the hereafter) suffer the punishment of Hell fire (for what you said about God and about God’s prophets).

Quran 3:182 Verse 3:182 This (judgement of God in the hereafter) is the consequence of your own doing. God is never unjust to His servants (people, creatures).

(Note1. Quran 4:157, Verse 4:157 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) said (showing their disbelief in the messenger Prophet Muhammad and his followers by boasting), "We killed messiah Jesus Isa, son of Mary Mariam, the messenger of God" ….”


5-2. Punishment for words against God and His messengers come from God not from humans. 

See Quran 2:174 in comment 5 and Quran 3:182 - 3:183 in comment 5-1.


Comment 6. In what way did Moses Musa see God?

Quran 6:103 Verse 6:103 Nobody (in this world) can see Him (God) but He (God) can see everything (that He has created). He (God) is subtle (God’s will is revealed every second) and He (God) is aware of all things.

(Note 1. God does not need eyes to see so the words "God can see" means God knows everything.

(Note 2. Prophet Moses Musa saw God does not mean that God was physically seen but means Prophet Moses Musa communicated with God.

(Note 3. Everything between creations and the creator is mediated through the angels of God.


Gospel of Matthew 23:9 And call no one on earth your father (God), because there is only one father (God) for you, the heavenly one.

(Note 1. God is not in one place but to show that Jesus (Isa) who is speaking on the Earth is not God the expression God in heaven is used.

(Note 2. Prophet Moses Musa saw God does not mean that God was physically seen but means Moses Musa communicated with God.

(Note 3. Everything between creations and the creator is mediated through the angels of God.


Comment 7. Why did God kill people for looking at God?

God killed people for looking at God means God killed people who entered a site that God has made Holy for the purpose of communication with humans if they had not been invited to enter.

7-1. Before the time of Prophet Moses Musa God revealed to Prophet Abraham Ibrahim that only the guilty are punished.

Torah Genesis 18:24 If there are fifty innocent people in the city, will you destroy the whole city? Won't you spare it in order to save the fifty? 

Torah Genesis 18:25 Surely you won't kill the innocent with the guilty. That's impossible! You can't do that. If you did, the innocent would be punished along with the guilty. That is impossible. The judge of all the earth has to act justly.” 

Torah Genesis 18:26 The Lord (God) answered, “If I find fifty innocent people in Sodom, I will spare the whole city for their sake.” 

Torah Genesis 18:27 Abraham Ibrahim spoke again: “Please forgive my boldness in continuing to speak to you, Lord (God). I am only a man and have no right to say anything. 

Torah Genesis 18:28 But perhaps there will be only forty-five innocent people instead of fifty. Will you destroy the whole city because there are five too few?”

The Lord (God) answered, “I will not destroy the city if I find forty-five innocent people.”

Torah Genesis 18:29 Abraham Ibrahim spoke again: “Perhaps there will be only forty.”

He (God) replied, “I will not destroy it if there are forty.”

Torah Genesis 18:30 Abraham Ibrahim said, “Please don't be angry, Lord (God), but I must speak again. What if there are only thirty?”

He (God) said, “I will not do it if I find thirty.”

Torah Genesis 18:31 Abraham Ibrahim said, “Please forgive my boldness in continuing to speak to you, Lord (God). Suppose that only twenty are found?”

He (God) said, “I will not destroy the city if I find twenty.”

Torah Genesis 18:32 Abraham Ibrahim said, “Please don't be angry, Lord (God), and I will speak only once more. What if only ten are found?”

He (God) said, “I will not destroy it (the city) if there are ten (innocent people).” 

Torah Genesis 18:33 After he had finished speaking with Abraham Ibrahim, the Lord (God) went away, and Abraham Ibrahim returned home. 

(Note 1. In the Torah Taurat human actions that will result in the sudden killing of innocent people together with wrongdoers is not acceptable in the eyes of God. 


7-2. God also revealed that every creation has a predetermined period of time on the Earth.

Deuteronomy 32:39 See now that I (God), namely  I, am He, and there is no God with Me (One God alone is the creator and ruler of every creation); I kill, and I make alive; I have wounded, and I heal; and there is none that can deliver (what I have decreed) out of My hand. 


7-3. God revealed that everything that is Holy must be correctly treated. 

Torah Numbers 4:17 And the LORD (God) spoke to Prophet Moses Musa and to Prophet Aaron Harun, saying:

Torah Numbers 4:18 'Do not cut yourselve off from the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites;

Torah Numbers 4:19 but do to them (teach so), that they may live, and not die, when they approach to the most holy things: Aaron Harun and his sons shall go in, and appoint each one to his service and to his work;

Torah Numbers 4:20 but they shall not go in to see the holy things as they are being covered, in case they die.'

(Note 1. Death comes not from humans but from God to the priest who does not care for the Ark of God as he has been taught.

(Note 2. Death comes not from humans but from God to any person who disrespects the Ark of God by incorrectly touching it or looking inside it.


Hebrew Bible 1 Samuel 6:19 And He (God) killed of the men of Beth-shemesh (in Judah), because they had gazed upon the ark of the LORD (God), He (God) killed of the people seventy men; and (for people in a small village where every person knew each other the pain was as if God had killed) fifty thousand men, and the people mourned, because the LORD (God) had struck a great blow upon the people (of this small agricultural community).


8. Punishment for incorrect behaviour towards Holy things comes from God not from humans. 

It is not permitted for humans to copy the punishments of God.

The stories of the punishments of God are lessons for humans.

The stories of the punishments of God are not orders for humans to copy.

Humans do not have the wisdom of God.

Humans do not have the authority of God.

God is the creator.

Humans are created.

When humans become arrogant they forget God and act as if there is nothing more important and knowledgeable than themselves.

Quran 2:56
Verse 2:56
 Then We (God) raised (resurrected) you (the Children of Israel) up after your death so that you might be thankful.

Comment 1. In the time of Prophet Moses Musa God killed some among the children of Israel who violated Holy ground in Mount Sinai and then God brought them back to life.

God brought the children of Israel back to life so that they would be thankful to God and so that they might return to the right path.

God shows the children of Israel that God can bring the dead back to life. 

Comment 2. God brings dead people back to life on the Earth. See Quran 2:72 – 2:73

Comment 3. See Quran 2:55 comments.

 

Quran 2:57 Verse 2:57 And We (God) made clouds that gave you (the Children of Israel) shade and We (God) sent down manna (food from heaven) and quail to you and said, “Eat the good things that We (God) have provided for you," but they (the Children of Israel disobeyed by not being thankful for the food that came from heaven and instead they asked for the old foods that they use to eat and so they) did not wrong Us (God) but they wronged themselves (because they were not thankful to God for what God gave them).

Comment 1. God in the Koran Quran is the same God in the Torah Taurat.

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 16:4 Then the LORD (God) said to Prophet Moses Musa: “Look, I (God) will cause bread to rain (down) from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day so that I (God) may trial them, whether they will walk in My (God’s) law, or not.

Comment 2. The people did what they wanted instead of obeying God’s commands.

Quran 2:61 Verse 2:61 And remember when you (the Children of Israel) said, "O Moses Musa, we cannot endure one kind of food so ask your Lord (God) on our behalf to give us what the earth grows, its herbs, cucumbers, garlic, lentils and onions." He (Prophet Moses Musa) said "Would you exchange something that is better for you (food specially sent to you from heaven) with something not as good (the foods that you remember eating in earlier times)? Then go to any town and you shall find what you want." Humiliation, misery and the wrath of God (anger of God) was on them because they (the Children of Israel) continually disbelieved God's word by disobedience and rebelled (against God) by killing God’s prophets unjustly.

Note 1. Quran 4:157, Verse 4:157 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) said (showing their disbelief in the messenger Prophet Muhammad and his followers by boasting), "We killed messiah Jesus Isa, son of Mary Mariam, the messenger of God" ….”

 

Quran 2:58 Verse 2:58 And remember when We (God) said, "Enter this town (in the country of Canaan, today known as Israel and Palestine) and eat freely whatever you (the Children of Israel) wish, but enter the gate in prostration (humbly bowing) and say 'forgive us,' and We (God) shall forgive you (the Children of Israel of) your sins and increase the reward for those who do good."

Comment 1. The children of Israel in the Holy land.

The Holy land which God has given to the Children of Israel. 

Children of Israel enter the Holy land which God has given to you.

Quran 5:21, Verse 5:21 "O my people (the children of Israel), enter the holy land (Canaan, today known as Israel and Palestine) which God has given to you and do not turn back (in fear of the people that are there) or you shall return as the losers."

Quran 7:161, Verse 7:161 And it was said to them (the children of Israel), live in this town (in the country of Canaan, today known as Israel and Palestine) and eat anything you like that you find in it, and say "Relieve us of our burdens" and enter the gate (of the town) bowing humbly and then We (God) shall forgive you your sins and We (God) shall increase (the reward) for the doers of good.

 

Quran 2:59 Verse 2:59 But those (of the Children of Israel) who did wrong exchanged God’s word (with their own desires and ignored what God had commanded them to do) which had been told to them and instead they followed their own desires and so We (God) sent a punishment from heaven for their evil doing.  

(Comment 1. The children of Israel disobeyed God’s commands.

The Holy land shall be forbidden to the children of Israel for forty years.

The Holy land shall be forbidden to the children of Israel for 40 years.

Quran 5:23 Verse 5:23 Two among them (Joshua or Yashu bin Noon and Caleb or Kalab) who feared (God) and on whom God had bestowed His (God’s) Grace said, “Enter (attack) through the gate and when you (the children of Israel) enter you shall be victorious. Put your trust (in God) if you have faith (in God).”

 

Quran 5:24 Verse 5:24 They (the children of Israel) said, "O Prophet Moses Musa, as long as they are in it (Canaan, today known as Israel and Palestine) we (the children of Israel) shall never be able to enter it. You (Prophet Moses Musa) and your Lord (God) go and fight and we (the children of Israel) shall sit here."

 

Quran 5:25 Verse 5:25 He (Prophet Moses Musa) said, “My Lord (God), I have control of none but myself and my brother (Prophet Aaron Harun), so distinguish between us and the disobedient people.”

 

Quran 5:26 Verse 5:26 God said, “For this (because the children of Israel fear fighting against the idol worshippers in Canaan more than they fear God and for their continuous disobedience to God) the land (the promised land of Canaan, today Israel and Palestine) shall be forbidden to them (the children of Israel) for forty years and they shall wander in the land (in the wilderness of the Sinai Peninsular, Sinai desert, as punishment from God). So (Prophet Moses Musa) do not grieve for the disobedient people (among the children of Israel).”

 

Quran 2:61 Verse 2:61 And remember when you (the Children of Israel) said, "O Moses Musa, we cannot endure one kind of food so ask your Lord (God) on our behalf to give us what the earth grows, its herbs, cucumbers, garlic, lentils and onions." He (Prophet Moses Musa) said "Would you exchange something that is better for you (food specially sent to you from heaven) with something not as good (the foods that you remember eating in earlier times)? Then go to any town and you shall find what you want." Humiliation, misery and the wrath of God (anger of God) was on them because they (the Children of Israel) disbelieved God's word by disobedience and rebellion and by killing God’s prophets unjustly.

 

(Comment 1. Quran 2:57 Verse 2:57 And We (God) made clouds that gave you (the Children of Israel) shade and We (God) sent down manna (food from heaven) and quail to you and said, “Eat the good things that We (God) have provided for you," but they (the Children of Israel disobeyed by not being thankful for the food that came from heaven and instead they asked for the old foods that they use to eat and so they) did not wrong Us (God) but they wronged themselves (because they were not thankful to God for what God gave them).


Quran 4:157, Verse 4:157 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) said (showing their disbelief in the messenger Prophet Muhammad and his followers by boasting), "We killed messiah Jesus Isa, son of Mary Mariam, the messenger of God" ….”

 

Quran 2:62 Verse 2:62 Truly those who believe and those who are Jews, Christians and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Day of Judgment and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and they shall not fear or grieve in the hereafter.

(Comment 1. Who goes to Paradise?

The Jews who believe in God and do what is good go to Paradise.

The Christians who believe in God and do what is good go to Paradise.

The Sabians who believe in God and do what is good go to Paradise.

The Muslims who believe in God and do what is good go to Paradise.

Everyone who believes in God and does what is good goes to Paradise.

Whoever God wills shall go to Paradise.

See: The Torah, Gospel and Quran are from one God.

Who goes to Paradise in the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran Quran.

Quran 2:63 Verse 2:63 And remember when We (God) took your covenant (the agreement between the Children of Israel and God) and We (God) were on the Mountain (Mount Sinai) above you (saying), "Hold firm to what We (God) have given you (in the Torah Taurat) and remember it so you may be righteous.”

(Comment 1. Looking from the top of the mountain the people below are described as being “under the mountain” – meaning below the mountain).

(Comment 2. Quran 2:63 confirms what is “remembered” in the Torah Taurat in relation to God’s revelation on the mountain (Mount Horeb, Mount Sinai) in Torah Deuteronomy 4:11, Torah Exodus 19.18, 19:9 – 19:25, 20:15 – 20:19, 24:15 – 24:18 and in Torah Deuteronomy 4:11, 5: 2 – 5:5, 5:19 – 5:28, 9:10, 10:4).

 

Quran 2:64 Verse 2:64 Then, even after that, you (the Children of Israel) turned away, and if it had not been for the kindness of God and His (God’s) mercy then you would have been among the losers (in the hereafter).

Quran 2:65 Verse 2:65 And certainly you (the Children of Israel) have known that those among you who broke the Sabbath (between Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, the Jewish day of rest and praise to God), We (God) said to them, “Become apes, (be) despised and rejected (for working on the Sabbath).”

Comment 1. Jewish Rabbinical literature in 6th century Arabia in the Koran Quran.

Quran 2:65 and 2:66 is a story of the rabbis and teachers of the Jews of Yathrib Arabia which has been preserved in the Quran to reveal the story of Torah Nehemiah 13:18.

God sometimes uses stories not in the Torah Taurat but in the Jewish Rabbinical literature of Arabia as a way of showing that the Quran is for all humans including the Jews of Yathrib Arabia who knew this story from their rabbis and teachers.

Jewish Rabbinical literature are the writings of Rabbis in Jewish hadith stories that answer questions not answered in the Torah Taurat.


Comment 2. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah Taurat.

 

Torah Nehemiah 13:14 Remember me (Nehemiah), O my God, concerning this (good deed), and do not wipe out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for your wards (the children of Israel).

 

Torah Nehemiah 13:15 In those days I saw in Judah (today Israel and Palestine) some (people) treading wine-presses on the Sabbath (Saturday, the Jewish day of rest and praise to God), and (people) bringing in heaps of corn, and (people with) lading asses carrying wine, grapes, figs and all manner of burdens which they brought into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day and I warned them in the day (of their sin) when they sold (their) provisions.

 

Torah Nehemiah 13:16 There also lived there men from Tyre (today in Lebanon), who brought in fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the Sabbath to the children of Judah and in Jerusalem.

 

Torah Nehemiah 13:17 Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said to them, “What evil thing is this that you do and disrespect the Sabbath day?”

 

Torah Nehemiah 13:18 “Did not your fathers do that? And did not our God bring all this evil upon us and upon this city? Yet you bring more wrath (from God) upon (the children of) Israel by disrespecting the Sabbath.”

 

Comment 3.Become apes, (be) despised and rejected (for working on the Sabbath)” means “Be despised and rejected by Me (God) for breaking your covenant (agreement) with Me (God).”

 

Comment 4. God promises to fulfill his covenant (agreement) with the Children of Israel (the Jews, the Hebrews) if they also fulfill God’s covenant (agreement) in the Torah and fear only God.

 

Quran 2:40 Verse 2:40 O Children of Israel (the Jews, the Hebrews), remember My (God’s) favour when I (God) favoured you (by sending My revelations to you)? Fulfill the covenant (agreement) between you (the Children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) and Me (God) and I (God) shall continue to fulfill our agreements and fear (no one but) Me (God).

Quran 2:66 Verse 2:66 We (God) made it a perfect punishment for those who witnessed it (the change from a human to an ape) and (for) those who came after it (who remember this story) and as a warning to the righteous (to honour their covenant, agreement with God).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:65 comments.

 

Quran 2:67 Verse 2:67 And remember when Prophet Moses Musa said to his people, "Truly God commands that you sacrifice a cow” and they (the Children of Israel) said, “are you making fun of us?” and Prophet Moses Musa replied, “I seek the protection of God from being one of the ignorant (like these people who are without faith).”

Comment 1. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah Taurat.

Torah Numbers 19:1 And the Lord (God) spoke to Prophet Moses Musa and to Prophet Aaron Harun, saying:

Torah Numbers 19:2 This is the statute of the law which the Lord (God) has commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring you a red heifer (a cow that has not had a calf), faultless, which has no blemish (no marks), and on which never came yoke (meaning which had never been made to do work).

Comment 2. Torah Deuteronomy 9:24 (Prophet Moses Musa said to the children of Israel), “You have been rebellious against the Lord (God) from the day that I knew you”.

 

Quran 2:68 Verse 2:68 They (the Children of Israel) said, “Ask your Lord (God) for us to make it clear to us what kind of cow she is.” Prophet Moses Musa said, “He (God) says, she is a cow not too old or too young but of middle age so do now what you are commanded.”

 

Quran 2:69 Verse 2:69 They (the Children of Israel) said, “Ask your Lord (God) for us to make it clear to us her colour.” Prophet Moses Musa said, “He (God) says, she is a fawn-colored calf, pure and rich in the shade of its colour (the red shade of brown) and a delight to see.”

Comment 1. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat.

Torah Numbers 19:2 This is the statute of the law which the Lord (God) has commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring you a red heifer (a cow that has not had a calf), faultless, which has no blemish (no marks), and on which never came yoke (meaning which had never been made to do work).

 

Quran 2:70 Verse 2:70 They (the Children of Israel) said, “Ask your Lord (God) for us to make it clear to us what she is because to us the cows all look the same, we ask for guidance if God wills.”

 

Quran 2:71 Verse 2:71 Prophet Moses Musa said, "He (God) says she is not trained to plough the soil or water the fields and she is sturdy without a mark on her." They (the Children of Israel) said, "Now you have brought the truth." Then they offered her in sacrifice, although they nearly decided not to.

 

Quran 2:72 Verse 2:72 And remember when you killed a man and accused each other of it (the killing) and God showed what you (the Children of Israel) were hiding (meaning, showed who the killer was).

Comment 1. God shows the children of Israel that God can bring the dead back to life.

 

Quran 2:73 Verse 2:73 We (God) said, "Hit the (dead) body with a piece of the sacrificed cow" and God brought the dead to life and showed this to you (the Children of Israel) so that you may understand (that God knows everything and you cannot hide anything from God who is the creator of every creation). –

Comment 1. God shows the children of Israel that God can bring the dead people back to life.

Comment 2. God brings dead people back to life on the Earth. See Quran 2:55 – 2:56

 

Quran 2:74 Verse 2:74 After that, your hearts became hardened (against acceptance of the truth), like rocks and even harder (than rocks). There are rocks from which rivers gush, and there are rocks which split apart so that water flows and there are rocks which fall down for fear of God (but your hearts are unmoved and not humbled to God). God knows what you do.

 

Quran 2:75 Verse 2:75 Can you (the people of faith, the Muslims) hope that they (the Jews of Yathrib Arabia today Medina Saudi Arabia) can believe like you (sincerity believe in God) when a group of them (Jewish rabbis in Yathrib) use to listen to the words of God (in the Torah Taurat) and then (purposefully) distorted the (implementation of the) Torah Taurat after they clearly understood its meaning (meaning, they fall in and out of belief in the word of God)?

Comment 1. Notice that God is not saying that the Torah Taurat has been physically changed.

God is saying that the interpretation of the Torah Taurat was changed in the mind (in the heart) of the Jews of Yathrib because they no longer followed what the Torah Taurat commanded.

This is the meaning of “distorting the Torah Taurat.”

Other references in the Quran such as "some can see and others cannot see" refer to people that read the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran. God has allowed some people to understand what they read while other people who read the same verses shall not know that God has put a covering on their heart so that they cannot correctly understand what they read.

Comment 2. God confirms that the Torah Taurat is from God.

God protects God’s word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil; or the Koran Quran then no revelation could be trusted.

Comment 3. See Quran 2:5 comments.  

 

Quran 2:76 Verse 2:76 And when they (the hypocrites from among the Jews of Yathrib, Arabia today Medina, Saudi Arabia who say one thing but they believe the opposite thing) meet those (Muslims who live in Yathrib) who have faith, they (the hypocrites from among the Jews of Yathrib) say “We also believe (in God)” but when they (the hypocrites from among the Jews of Yathrib) are alone with their own people (then those that are righteous among the Jews of Yathrib that are not hypocrites and who love God) say (to the Jewish hypocrites), “Do you talk to them (the Muslims) about what God has revealed (only for the purpose) so that they (the Muslims) can argue about it with you (the Jews of Yathrib) in front of your Lord (God), have you no sense (to argue about God in this way because in the hereafter you might be asked, “If you really believed in God then why did you not talk honestly and sincerely about God with God’s followers among the Muslims and God’s messenger Prophet Muhammad?”).

(Note 1. See Quran 2:13 comments.

 

Quran 2:77 Verse 2:77 Do they (the Jews of Yathrib) not know that God knows what they hid and what they reveal (in this and all other matters)?

 

Quran 2:78 Verse 2:78 And among them (the lettered Jews of Yathrib Arabia today Medina Saudi Arabia, the Jews with religious knowledge in Yathrib Arabia, the Jews who are educated in the Scriptures) are unlettered people (ummiyyoona, Ummiyyun, ommiyyoona, Jews who are uneducated in the Scripture, Jewish people who have not studied the Jewish Scriptures, Jews) who do not know the Scripture except from what they heard others say and (with that small knowledge) they do nothing but conjecture (guess and speculate about the meaning of the Scriptures because they have not studied the Torah Taurat as every Jew should have studied).

Quran 2:79 Verse 2:79 Warning (of serious consequences) to those who write the Scriptures (falsely) with their own hands and then say, "This is from God," so they can exchanged it (the truth of God’s revelations) for a small price (of worldly gain such as profit, pride or fame because of arrogance, jealousy or dishonesty). Warning (of serious consequences) to them for what their hands have written and a warning to them for what (sin) they (shall) earn. 

Comment 1. Writing that something is from God but it cannot be found in the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran is a sin against God.

The one with the right to punish a sin that is against God is God only not humans.

God has given humans a lifetime to ask forgiveness and repent.

It is not for humans to judge other humans in a matter that is only for God to judge and for God to punish.

See  Quran 2:78, 2:79 and 22:3 comments.

Quran 103:2 Verse 103:2 Humans are lost (from the mercy of God) –

Quran 103:3 Verse 103:3 Except those who believe and who do righteous deeds and who encourage each other to the truth and encourage each other to have patience.

Note 7. The best behaviour is patience and goodness.

Quran 67:2 Verse 67:2 (It is God) who has created life and death (meaning, God has created you) to test which of you is best in behavior. He (God) is mighty and forgiving.

Quran 64:14 Verse 64:14 All you who believe, Among your wives and your children there are enemies for you (if they try to move you away from God) so beware of them. If you pardon (what people have done) and overlook (the faults of people), and forgive (people) then God is forgiving and merciful (to you).

Quran 41:34 Verse 41:34 The good deed and the evil deed are not the same (meaning they are not both correct). Repel (evil) with a better (deed, for example repel anger with patience and forgiveness), then the person with whom you had hostility (hate and bad feelings) shall become like a close friend.

Quran 41:35 Verse 41:35 And no one shall be granted such goodness except those who are patient and who possess a great portion of goodness (within themselves).

Note 8. The punishment for mocking comes from God only, not from humans.

Quran 13:32 Verse 13:32 And certainly the messengers (of God) were mocked before you (Prophet Muhammad, in the same way that you have been mocked), but I (God) granted some time to those who disbelieved (so that they might understand and repent and ask for forgiveness).

Note 10. Mocking is corrected by the righteous who speak with understanding and knowledge.

Quran 2:88 Verse 2:88 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib) say (to Prophet Muhammad, mockingly), "Our heart is wrapped” (sealed, covered, meaning, we have our own beliefs and we are closed to any other beliefs) but it is God’s curse (the misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) that is on them for their disbelief, so little it is that they believe.

Note 11. Mocking is corrected by the righteous who speak politely with wisdom.

Quran 2:231 Verse 2:231 “… And do not treat the verses of God as a joke, but remember God’s favour on you (when God gave you faith), and He (God) has revealed the Book (the Quran) and wisdom (through the example of Prophet Muhammad) to teach you. And fear God and know that God knows all things.


Comment 3. It is a sin to say that God orders death for leaving religion when God has given no such order.

Note 1. God has given humans freedom to choose their religion. 

God has given humans freedom of belief.

God has given humans freedom to pray.

God has given humans freedom of religion.

God has given humans freedom of worship.

Quran 18:29 Verse 18:29 And say, “The truth (of the Quran) is from your Lord (God)" so whoever wishes let them believe and whoever wishes let them disbelieve. …”

Quran 2:256 Verse 2:256 There is no compulsion in religion ..."

Note 2. The one who punishes people who leave their religion is God only.

The one who judges people who leave their religion is God only.

Al-Walid bin al-Mughirah was an apostate because he accepted God and later rejected God.

In Quran 74:11 God forbids humans to punishment those who leave Islam.

In Quran 74:11 only God is allowed to punish those who believed in God and later abandoned their belief.

In Quran 74:11 the one who has the authority to punish the apostate is God only.

Quran 74:11 Verse 74:11 Leave Me (God) to deal with (Al-Walid bin al-Mughirah, Al-Walid ibn al-Mughirah, the apostate) the one I (God) created (as one human baby born all) alone.

Note 3. God has given humans freedom to choose their religion.

God has given humans freedom to choose their belief.

God has given humans freedom to choose their religion.

Quran 76:29 Verse 76:29 This is a reminder (from God to humanity), so that whoever wishes may take a path to their Lord (God).

Quran 83:33 Verse 83:33 But they (the believers of God) were not sent as guardians over them (the wrongdoers, because God has given freedom of belief and freedom of religion to every person).

Note 4. It is God who decides who stays and who leaves their religion.

No human can punish another human for what God has decided.

Quran 76:29 Verse 76:29 This is a reminder (from God to humanity), so that whoever wishes may take a path to their Lord (God).

Quran 76:30 Verse 76:30 And you do not desire (to do) except what God wills (for you to desire to do). God knows all and is wise.

Note 5. Punishment for leaving religion comes from God only not from humans.

The stone idol worshippers in Mecca threatened death for leaving the religion of worshipping stones.

God does not order humans to kill people who leave their religion.

In Quran 16:106 God forbids humans to punishment those who leave Islam.

In Quran 16:106 only God is allowed to punish those who believed in Islam and later left Islam.

In Quran 16:106 the one who has the authority to punish the apostate is God only.

Quran 16:106 Verse 16:106 Whoever disbelieves in God after they had believed, on them is the wrath (anger) from God and for them is a great punishment (from God) except for the person who is forced (to declare disbelief in God against their will because of the threat of death from the stone idol worshippers of Mecca in Arabia) but whose heart still has belief (in God).

Note 6. God decrees who believe and who disbelieve in God.

God gave humans freedom to choose believe in God or reject belief in God.

Humans are not allowed to punish other humans for their belief because it is God who has decreed their belief.

Quran 74:36 Verse 74:36 A warning to humans (to remember God and the hereafter and) -

Quran 74:37 Verse 74:37 For whoever among you wills (to accept the warning from God) to go ahead (on the path of righteousness) or stay behind (in disbelief of God who is your creator).

Quran 74:55 Verse 74:55 So whoever wills shall remember it (God’s warning to avoid evil and to do what is good).

Quran 74:56 Verse 74:56 And they shall not remember it (God’s warning to avoid evil and to do what is good) unless God has willed (for them to will it). He (God) is worthy of (your) fear and worthy to forgive (your wrongdoing).

Quran 76:30 Verse 76:30 And you do not desire (to do) except what God wills (for you to desire to do). God knows all and is wise.

(Note 7. Islam does not force belief in God.

Islam does not force belief in religion.

God did not will for all humans to believe because God could have created all humans to believe if God willed. So God is saying, if God has not willed all humans to believe would you force humans to do something that God has not willed? 

Quran 10:99 Verse 10:99 And if Your Lord (God) willed then all who are on the earth would have believed together. (God asks), “Would you (Prophet Muhammad) force people (to believe in God against their will) before they are believers? (The answer is No, Islam does not force belief in God).”

(Note 8. Humans do not have permission to do what only God is allowed to do.

God decrees what humans believe according to what they have earned of the goodness that is in their heart.

Humans are free to choose their belief.

Humans have no authority from God to punish anyone for their religious belief.

In the matter of belief God decrees religious belief according to what a soul has earned.

The only one with authority to punish humans for their religious belief is God.

Quran 10:100 Verse 10:100 It is not for any soul to believe except by the permission of God and He (God) shall bring punishment to those who do not reason (and think when they see or hear or feel the signs of God).

(Note 9. Quran 2:256 Verse 2:256 There is no compulsion in religion (meaning, it is not compulsory to accept religion). …” See Quran 2:256


See: Apostasy in Islam.

In the Quran God ordered freedom of religious belief 1400 years before the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

However incorrect understanding of the Quran and the hadith can cause wrongful killing of people in the name of God and in the name of human hadith stories.

Quran 2:80 Verse 2:80 And they (the Jews of Yathrib) say, "In the hereafter the Hell fire shall only touch us for a few days" Say, (to them), "Have you received a promise from God? He (God) never breaks His (God’s) promise, or are you saying something about God that you do not know?"

 

Quran 2:81 Verse 2:81 Whoever has done evil and is surrounded by their sins shall live in fire (as their punishment in the Hereafter).

Note 1. Quran 17:60 Verse 17:60 “.... We (God) warn (people to do what is good and avoid what is evil) and make them afraid (of God by describing the home for evil doers in Hell Fire in the Hereafter) but it only increases them (some of the humans) in nothing but greater disobedience against God (and the commandment to do what is good and avoid what is evil). 

 

Quran 2:82 Verse 2:82 And those who have faith and do good deeds, they shall live in the Garden of Paradise forever (as their reward in the Hereafter).

 

Quran 2:83 Verse 2:83 And remember We (God) took a covenant (agreement) from the Children of Israel stating that they worship no one but God and that they be kind to their parents, relations, orphans and those in need and talk kindly to people and be consistent  in prayer and charity. Then you (the Jews of Yathrib) turned away (from your agreement by) opposing (the agreement with God) except a few among you (the righteous among the Jews of Yathrib).  

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:84 and 2:85

 

Quran 2:84 Verse 2:84 And remember We (God) took your covenant (agreement) that you shall not kill each other and that you shall not expel your own people out of their homes and you sincerely agreed and witnessed this promise. –

(Comment 1. The Torah Taurat confirms the Koran Quran.

Jewish Bible Torah Leviticus 19:18 (And God spoke to Prophet Moses Musa saying) You shall not take vengeance (revenge, retaliation, punishment), nor bear any grudge (complaint, resentment) against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbour as (you would love) yourself: I am the LORD (God and this I have commanded).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:85 comments.

 

Quran 2:85 Verse 2:85 Yet you (the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) kill each other and expel a group among you from their homes, assisting (their enemies) against them (unlawfully) in sin and transgression, and if they came to you as captives you would ransom them (lawfully) whereas their expulsion was unlawful for you to do. Is it that you believe in only part of the Scriptures and you reject the rest? What do you think shall be the reward for those that did that except disgrace in this life? On the Day of Judgment they shall have a serious punishment because God knows everything they do.

Comment 1. Quran 2:84 – 2:85 is about two Jewish and two Arab tribes who lived in the Yathrib area in Arabia at the time of Prophet Muhammad.

The Jewish tribe of Qurayza lead by Ka'b ibn Asad in Yathrib had an alliance with the Arab tribe of Aws lead by Saad ibn Muadh.

The Jewish tribe of Nadir lead by Ka'b ibn al-Ashraf and Huyayy ibn Akhtab in Yathrib and the Jewish tribe of Banu Qaynuqa in Yathrib allied themselves with the Arab tribe of Khazraj lead by Abdallah ibn Ubayy (Abdullah ibn Salul) also in Yathrib).

(Comment 2. The time before the arrival of Prophet Muhammad in Yathrib.

Before the arrival of Prophet Muhammad the tribes in the Yathrib area in Arabia (today Medina, Saudi Arabia) attacked each other based on their alliance and expelled one another taking captives and then ransoming them.

(Comment 3. When a Jewish tribe was asked, “Why do you fight each other and then pay their ransom?” they replied, “Because God commands us to ransom” and if asked, “Why then do you fight?” they said, “To save our allies from the humiliation of defeat.”

(Comment 4. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah.

In Quran 2:85 God warns the Jews of Yathrib: “Do you believe in the part of the Scriptures (in the Torah Taurat) about ransom and disbelieve in the part about not fighting your own people and not expelling your own people from their homes and not helping one group fight with another group of your people?” The outcome for such people is disgrace in this world and punishment in the hereafter. 

(Comment 5. See Quran 2:84.

  

Quran 2:86 Verse 2:86 These are the people (those among the Jews of Yathrib) who exchange the life of this world (by doing what is forbidden for a short time on the Earth) at the cost of (losing eternal life in Paradise in) the Hereafter and they shall have punishment and no one to help them (in the hereafter).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:84 and 2:85. 

  

Quran 2:87 Verse 2:87 We (God) gave Prophet Moses Musa the Scriptures and followed him with messenger after messenger. We (God) gave Prophet Jesus Isa the son of Mary Mariam clear signs (of his truthfulness) to show he was a messenger of God and strengthened him with a Holy Spirit. Is it not true that whenever a messenger (of God) comes to you (the children of Israel, the Jews of Yathrib) that you don’t like, you become filled with your own pride and some messengers you disbelieve and others you kill?

Comment 1Quran 4:157, Verse 4:157 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) said (showing their disbelief in the messenger Prophet Muhammad and his followers by boasting), "We killed messiah Jesus Isa, son of Mary Mariam, the messenger of God" ….” 


Quran 2:88 Verse 2:88 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib) say (to Prophet Muhammad, mockingly), "Our heart is wrapped” (sealed, covered, meaning, we have our own beliefs and we are closed to any other beliefs) but it is God’s curse (the misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) that is on them for their disbelief, so little it is that they believe. –

(Note 1. See Quran 2:13 comments.

 

Quran 2:89 Verse 2:89 And (God’s curse, the misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance is on them because) when a Book (the Quran) came to them (the Jews of Yathrib) from God confirming what was with them before (in the Torah Taurat) they disbelieved (the Quran). In earlier times they (the children of Israel, the Jews, the Hebrews) prayed for victory against those without faith, but now they (the Jews of Yathrib) themselves disbelieved. The curse of God (the misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) is on those without faith.

(Comment 1. What is the curse of God?

The curse of God, the misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance is on those that knew God and then disbelieved God. See Quran 2:88 – 2:89, 2:104 comments 1 and 2:159.

(Comment 2. What is the combined curse of God?

The combined curse of God (misfortune from God) and of angels and of humans is on those that knew God and then disbelieved in God. See Quran 2:161.

(Comment 3. What is the wrath of God?

Wrath after wrath, anger after anger is from God on those that knew God and then disbelieved in God. See Quran 2:90).

(Comment 4. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah.

God tells us that the Quran confirms what is in the Torah.

This means that God has protected His Quran and His Torah.

God protects His (God’s) word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah or the Gospel or the Quran then no revelation could be trusted.

See Quran 2:5 comments

  

Quran 2:90 Verse 2:90 How bad is that to have sold (given away for the small price of envy a home in Paradise for) their own souls by disbelieving what God has revealed (in the Koran Quran) out of envy (jealousy) that God should send down His (God’s) favour on whichever of His (God’s) servants He (God) pleases (such as Prophet Moses Musa 3200 years ago and Prophet Jesus Isa 2000 years ago and Prophet Muhammad 1400 years ago). For this reason they (the children of Israel who disbelieved the Torah Taurat revealed to Prophet Moses Musa and then disbelieved the Gospel Injil revealed to Prophet Jesus Isa and then disbelieved the Koran Quran revealed to Prophet Muhammad) have brought to themselves wrath after wrath (anger after anger from God, for the sin of moving in and out of belief in God and His messengers) and for those without faith there is a humiliating punishment (in the hereafter).

(Note 1. See Quran 2:89 comments

 

Quran 2:91 Verse 2:91 When it is said to them (the Jews of Yathrib), "Believe in what God has sent down”, they (the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) say, "We believe in what was revealed to us" (in the Torah Taurat, the Old Bible, Old Testament) yet they reject all that came after it (from Prophet Jesus Isa in the Gospel Injil, New Bible, New Testament and Prophet Muhammad in the Koran Quran) even though it is the truth confirming what has already been revealed to them (in the Torah Taurat). Ask (them), "Why in times gone by (meaning, in the past) did you kill the prophets of God if you really believed?"

Comment 1. Killing the prophets of God.

See: Boasting they kill the prophets of God.

Quran 2:92 Verse 2:92 Prophet Moses Musa showed you (the children of Israel) clear evidence of the truth (that he was a messenger of God), then you (the children of Israel) worshipped a calf (idol as your god) when he (Prophet Moses Musa) was away (receiving the commandments of God on top of Mount Sinai Horeb) and you did great wrong (during his absence).

(Note 1. See Quran 2:51 comments.

 

Quran 2:93 Verse 2:93 And remember when We (God) took your covenant (the agreement between the Children of Israel and God) and We (God) were on the Mountain (Mount Sinai) above you (saying), "Hold firm to what We (God) have given you (in the Torah Taurat), and remember it so you may become righteous.” They said, "We heard but we disobeyed." Their hearts were made to worship the calf (idol) because they had no faith (in God). Say (to the Jews of Yathrib Arabia), “Bad things are what your faith brings to you, if you are really believers (in God)."

Comment 1. See the covenant between the Children of Israel and God in Quran verse 2:63.

Comment 2. God’s books are protected but the hearts of humans move in and out of belief in God.

If the Books of God were not protected then humans might say in the hereafter, “I trusted the books of God but they misled me.”

However the word of God is protected by God so that no one can claim in the hereafter that they were misled by the word of God in the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran.

God protects God’s word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah or the Gospel or the Quran then no revelation could be trusted.

Note 1. See Quran 2:5 comments.


Quran 2:94 Verse 2:94 Say (to the Jews of Yathrib Arabia), "If you are truthful that life in the Hereafter with God is specially for you and not for anyone else (as you say), then do you look forward to death?"

 

Quran 2:95 Verse 2:95 But they (the Jews of Yathrib) shall never look forward it (death), because of what their hands have done (in sin which the soul shall present for judgement by God in the hereafter). God is aware of (who are) the evil-doers and (who are) the disbelievers (in Him).

 

Quran 2:96 Verse 2:96 And you shall most certainly find them (the Jews of Yathrib Arabia) the greediest of people for life (doing what they want instead of what God commanded them to do), they are even more greedier than the idol worshipper’s love of life. Each one of them (the Jews of Yathrib) wishes they could be granted life for a thousand years (instead of wishing to obey God), but such a long life (of a thousand years) would not save them even a little bit from the punishment that is due in the hereafter because God sees all that they do.

(Comment 1. Those among the Jews of Yathrib who lost their belief in God also lost the guidance of God.

  

Quran 2:97 Verse 2:97 Say (Prophet Muhammad, to the people), who is against (Angel) Gabriel Jibril?because it is he (Angel Gabriel Jibril) who has revealed this (Scripture, the Quran) to your heart (Prophet Muhammad) by God’s permission, confirming what was revealed before it (in the Gospel Injil and in the Torah Taurat), and as a guidance and good news for those who believe.

 

(Comment 1. The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah and the Gospel.

Quran 2:98 Verse 2:98 Whoever is against God and His (God’s) angels and messengers and (Angel) Gabriel and (Angel) Michael should know that God is against them.

 

Quran 2:99 Verse 2:99 We (God) have sent to you clear revelations that none shall reject except those who have no faith in (God and no faith in) good guidance.

 

Quran 2:100 Verse 2:100 Is it not true that every time they (the Jews of Yathrib) made an agreement a group among them would break it (the agreement)? Most of them do not believe (in God because they do no respect their agreements).

(Comment 1. Why did different Jewish tribes in Yathrib break peace agreements with the Muslims?

The long time friendship and business relationship between the Jewish tribes in Yathrib Arabia and the stone idol worshippers of Mecca Arabia caused the Jews of Yathrib to forget God in times of conflict and support their long friendship with the stone idol worshippers against the new Muslim believers of God.


Quran 2:101 Verse 2:101 And when a messenger (Prophet Muhammad with revelations) from God came to them (the Jews of Yathrib Arabia), confirming what was with them (in the Torah Taurat, the Old Bible, Old Testament, Hebrew Bible, Jewish Bible), some of the people of the Scripture (some of the Jews of Yathrib) who were given the Scripture threw away the Book of God behind their backs (ignored the Quran), as if they did not know what it was.

Comment 1. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah Taurat.

Comment 2. Prophet Muhammad with revelations from God confirmed what is in the Torah because the Torah belongs to God and no one can change the word of God.

Comment 3. Prophet Muhammad was sent with new laws to ease the burden of some laws in the Torah Taurat just as Prophet Jesus Isa came with new interpretations to laws in the Torah Taurat that corrected human understanding of the word of God.

Comment 4. In religious matters over which the Jews and the Christians differed and disputed Prophet Muhammad was sent by God to correct the Jewish and the Christian understanding of the word of God.

Comment 5. Prophet Muhammad confirmed that all the books that God revealed are correct today.

The word of God is protected by God so that no one can claim in the hereafter that they were misled by the word of God in the Torah or the Gospel or the Quran.

Quran 2:102 Verse 2:102 And they (some of the Jews of Yathrib in Arabia today in Medina Saudi Arabia) believe what the evil ones said about the special powers of Prophet Solomon Suleiman during the time of his kingdom (they said Solomon's power was magic from evil ones as is written in Jewish rabbinic literature). (The truth is) Prophet Solomon Suleiman had faith (and all his powers were from God). It was the evil ones who were disbelievers who taught magic that had been revealed to Angel Harut and Angel Marut in Babylon. These Angels (when they taught the first humans this knowledge) first said “We are a test for your faith, do not disbelieve in God (by learning magic from us) and to those who disbelieved they taught the magic that caused dispute between husband and wife and caused harm only with God’s permission. They (the disbelievers) learned what harmed them (by learning what was evil) and not what profited them (by having faith in God and doing what was good) and they knew (because they were warned) that buyers of it (magic) would have no happiness in the Hereafter. If they only knew how terrible the price was (for learning the magic of doing evil) for which they sold their souls (for a place in fire in the hereafter). 

Comment 1. In Quran 2:102 God corrected a faulty story in Jewish rabbinic literature which was well known to the Jews of Yathrib in Arabia.

Comment 2. See more about why God put Rabbinic Jewish literature in the Koran in Quran 34:12 – 34:14 comments. 

Comment 3The Quran confirms that the Torah and Gospel and Quran have no faults because they are the word of God

God protects His Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran Quran. 

God protects God's word. 

No one has the power to change the word of God. 

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah Taurat or the Gospel Injil or the Koran Quran then no revelation could be trusted. 

See Quran 2:5 comments.  


Quran 2:103 Verse 2:103 If they had kept their faith and stayed away from evil they would have found that the reward from God is far better (than anything else), if they only knew.

 

Quran 2:104 Verse 2:104 You who believe, do not say (to Prophet Muhammad) “Raina” (meaning, “Hear us” which is also used with a twist in language to change its meaning so as to mock faith in God), but say, “Unzurna” (meaning, “Make us understand”) and then listen. To those without faith (in God) there is a painful punishment (in the hereafter). 

(Comment 1.  Quran 2:104 is further explained in Quran 4.46.

Quran 4.46 Verse 4.46 Among those who are Jews (the Jews of Yathrib) there are some who twist words so they have a different meaning and (they) say, "We hear your word (Prophet Muhammad) and disobey," and "Hear and let you (Prophet Muhammad) hear nothing." And (they say the word) “Raina” (and) with a twist of their tongues they mock faith in God. And if only they had said, "We hear and obey" and "Do make us understand," then it would have been better for them and more proper, but God has cursed them (with the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) for their disbelief, so they believe not (in God) except a few (of them who do believe in God).

(Comment 2. The punishment for mocking God.

The punishment for mocking belief in God.

The punishment for mocking religion.

The punishment for mocking a Prophet of God.

The punishment for mocking Prophet Muhammad.

The punishment of a lack of faith.

The punishment of wandering blindly with no genuine faith in God.

The punishment of misguidance.

The punishment in the hereafter.

It is not for humans to punish other humans for mocking religion because when people mock religion the one who gives punishment is not humans but God.

See Quran 2:13 – 2:20 and 2:79.

 

Quran 2:105 Verse 2:105 It is never the wish of those without faith (in God) among the People of the Scripture (those among the Jews in Arabia who have no faith in God and those among the Christians in Arabia who have no faith in God) or the (Arab stone) idol worshippers (in Arabia who have no faith in God) that anything good should come down to you (Prophet Muhammad) from your Lord (God, because of their envy and jealousy of you). But God chooses for His (God’s) special mercy whom He (God) pleases and God is the Lord of great bounty (favours and rewards).

 

Quran 2:106 Verse 2:106 None of Our (God’s) revelations do We (God) cancel or cause to be forgotten, but instead We (God) substitute something better or similar. Do you not know that God has knowledge over all things (and knows what and when to reveal something better or similar)?

Comment 1. Why did God remove stoning to death for adultery in the time of King David Dawud?

Prophet David Dawud lived after the time of Prophet Moses Musa. 

Quran 2:106 Verse 2:106 explains that God substituted something better or similar in the writings of the Torah Taurat and the Prophets (The Old Testament, The Old Bible).

God reveals that human repentance and God’s forgiveness is the most important message of religion because the person who sincerely asks God for forgiveness and repents to God and changes their bad behaviour by doing what is good shall be successful in the hereafter.

Quran 2:128 explains that God is always ready to give mercy because God is the Most Merciful.

Comment 2. Why did God remove stoning to death for adultery in the time of Prophet Jesus?

Prophet Jesus Isa lived after the time of Prophet David Dawud. 

Quran 2:106 Verse 2:106 explains that God substituted something better or similar in the Gospel Injil (The New Testament, The New Bible).

God reveals that human repentance and God’s forgiveness is the most important message of religion because the person who sincerely asks God for forgiveness and repents to God and changes their bad behaviour by doing what is good shall be successful in the hereafter.

Quran 2:128 explains that God is always ready to give mercy because God is the Most Merciful.

Comment 3. Why did God remove stoning to death for adultery from the Quran in the time of Prophet Muhammad?

Prophet Muhammad lived after the time of Prophet Jesus Isa. 

Quran 87:6 Verse 87:6 We (God through Angel Gabriel) shall make you (Prophet Muhammad) recite (the Quran) so that you shall not forget it.  

Quran 87:7 Verse 87:7 Except for what God wills (to be removed and forgotten).


Quran 2:106 explains that God substituted something better or similar in the Koran Quran.

God reveals that human repentance and God’s forgiveness is the most important message of religion because the person who sincerely asks God for forgiveness and repents to God and changes their bad behaviour by doing what is good shall be successful in the hereafter.

Quran 2:128 Verse 2:128 explains that God is always ready to give mercy because God is the Most Merciful.

(Comment 4. Forgiveness for adultery in the Quran.

The Quran does not order death for adultery.

Stoning to death for adultery cannot be found in the Koran Quran.

Today stoning to death for adultery is not in the religion of God.

Today stoning to death for adultery is not in the teachings of God.

In the Quran the law for illegal sexual intercourse for unmarried Muslims is Quran 4:15 – 4:18.

In the Quran the law for adultery by married Muslims is Quran 4:25 and 24:1 – 24:2.

Forgiveness for all sins including adultery is in Quran 4:17 – 4:18, 4:110, 25:68 – 25:71.

God reveals the punishment for adultery in Quran chapter 24 and explains why there is no death penalty for adultery.

In Quran chapter 24 God showed that in the time of Prophet Muhammad the people of Prophet Muhammad were not afraid to falsely accuse of adultery the wife of the Prophet of God.

God showed Prophet Muhammad that if his people in his time were not afraid to make false accusations against his wife then after the time of Prophet Muhammad the people would be afraid of no one in their making of false accusations for adultery.

Quran chapter 24 removes death for adultery and explains why it was removed by showing what happened to the wife of the Prophet of God.

The wife of the Prophet of God was saved only because Muhammad was a living Prophet under the guidance of God.

After Prophet Muhammad left the Earth who would protect the people from similar injustice?

God replaced stoning to death for adultery with the mercy of Quran chapter 24.

Some people follow what humans did in the past instead of following what God commands today in Quran chapter 24.

Those that claim Islam supports stoning to death for adultery have gone astray because no such thing exists in the Koran Quran.

Muslims who believe in stoning to death for adultery believe human hadith stories more than they believe the book of God, the Koran Quran.

In the same way Christians who believe that Jesus Isa is God believe human hadith stories more than they believe the book of God, the Gospel Injil.

Muslim believers and supporters of stoning to death for adultery are the followers of human stories not the followers of the stories of God.

In the same way Christian believers and supporters of the idea that Jesus Isa is God or a partner with God are also the followers of human stories not the followers of the stories of God.

When human hadith stories are believed more than the Books of God (the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran Quran) then the result is misguidance because you have trusted human stories more than you have trusted the stories of God.

On the day of Judgement the innocent will testify against their killer.

Quran 81:9 Verse 81:9 “For what crime were you (the baby girl) killed? (The baby girl shall say in the hereafter, “They killed me on the earth without a just reason”).


Quran 2:128 explains that God is always ready to give mercy because God is the Most Merciful.

God forgives illegal sexual intercourse.

(Comment 5. Who does God say is correctly guided?

Quran chapter 1 is said in 5 daily prayers by every Muslim 17 times each day asking God to guide us on the right path.


In Quran 2:4 God guides by telling us that we must believe what is in the Koran Quran and what God revealed before the Quran in the writings of the Torah Taurat and the Prophets (The Old Testament, the Old Bible, the Hebrew Bible, the Jewish Bible) and in the Gospel Injil (The New Testament, the New Bible, the Christian Bible).

 

God guides by telling humans in Quran 2:4 to believe what you read in the Quran and the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil and in Quran 2:5 God says about those humans They are on the right path and they shall be successful (in the hereafter).”


God guides by telling us in Quran 2:6 that the people who do not believe what they read in the Koran Quran and the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil They do not believe in God and nothing you do will change their mind (unless God removes the covering from their heart and the covering from their ears and the covering from their eyes).”

 

Quran 30:30 Verse 30:30 So direct yourself (Prophet Muhammad) towards the religion (the belief in one creator) for which He (God who is the one and only creator) has created (religion for) humans. No one can alter what God has created (in religion, in the Torah Taurat, the Gospel Injil and the Koran Quran). That is the right religion (belief), but most people do not know (this).


(1. Proof of God is the Torah, Gospel and Quran (Quran 30:30).

(2. No one has the power to change the word of God in the Torah, Gospel and Quran (Quran 30:30).

(3. The correct understanding of God is in understanding the Torah, Gospel and Quran (Quran 30:30).


(Comment 6. The Muslim God and the Jewish God and the Christian God is the same one God who created the creation.

Quran 29:46 Verse 29:46 And do not argue with the People of the Scripture (the Jews and the Christians) except in the best way (by using good words and in a good manner), except with those of them that are wrongdoers. And say, “We (Muslims) believe in what has been revealed to us (Muslims in the Koran Quran) and revealed to you (the Jews in your Torah Taurat and the Christians in your Gospel Injil). Our (Muslim) God and your (Jewish and Christian) God is (the same) one (God) and to Him (God, the creator of every creation) we have submitted (ourselves as believers in Him the one and only God).”

Comment 7. See God removed stoning to death for adultery.

Quran 2:107 Verse 2:107 Do you not know that to God belong the heavens and the earth and besides Him (God) you have no (other) protector or (other) helper?

Note 1. Unless God wills in the hereafter for an angel of God or a messenger of God or others to speak but they shall only say what God has permitted them to say.

 

Quran 2:108 Verse 2:108 Or would you question your messenger (Prophet Muhammad) in the same way that Prophet Moses Musa was questioned (by his people who had little faith) in the past? The person who changes from faith to disbelieve has moved away from the right path.

Comment 1. God does not order the killing of people who change their religion.

God not humans gives judgement and punishment to humans who lose their faith.

In the Quran God ordered freedom of religious belief 1400 years before the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

However incorrect understanding of the Quran and the hadith can cause wrongful killing of people in the name of God and in the name of human hadith stories.

Those that claim Islam supports killing a human only because they have changed their belief have gone astray because no such thing exists in the Koran Quran.

Muslims who believe in killing a human only because they have changed their belief believe human hadith stories more than they believe the book of God, the Koran Quran.

In the same way Christians who believe that God is the same as Jesus Isa believe human hadith stories more than they believe the book of God, the Gospel Injil.

Believers and supporters of killing a human only because they have changed their belief are the followers of human stories not the followers of the stories of God.

When human hadith stories are believed more than the Books of God (the Torah Taurat, Gospel Injil and Koran Quran) then the result is misguidance because you have trusted human stories more than you have trusted the stories of God.

On the day of Judgement the innocent will testify against their killer.

Comment 2. How was Prophet Moses Musa questioned by his people?

What did the people of Prophet Moses Musa say after the Pharaoh Firon and his army drowned in the Red Sea?


Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 15:22 And Prophet Moses Musa led (the children of) Israel onward from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur (in the Sinai Peninsula today in Egypt); and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 15:23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah (meaning bitter).

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 15:24 And the people murmured (whispered) against Prophet Moses Musa, saying: 'What shall we drink?'

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 15:25 And he (Prophet Moses Musa) cried to the LORD (God); and the LORD showed him a tree, and he throw it (the tree) into the waters, and the waters were made sweet (and good to drink).

 

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 16:2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured (whispered) against Prophet Moses Musa and against Prophet Aaron Harun in the wilderness;

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 16:3 and the children of Israel said to them: “It would have been better if we had died by the hand of the LORD (God) in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots (of food) and we ate all the bread we wanted; because you have brought us out (of Egypt) into this wilderness, to kill this whole community with hunger.”

Jewish Bible Torah Exodus 16:4 Then the LORD (God) said to Prophet Moses Musa: “Look, I (God) will cause bread to rain (down) from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day so that I (God) may trial them, whether they will walk in My (God’s) law, or not.

 

Quran 2:109 Verse 2:109 Many of the People of the Scripture (the Jews and the Christians) wish they could turn you (Muslim people) back to disbelief (in God) after you became believers (in God) because of envy from themselves (envy from their own souls, even) after the truth (that your God is the same as their God) became clear to them. But forgive them and pardon them and follow God’s commands. God has power over all things.

(Comment 1. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah and the Gospel.

(Comment 3. A person who carries the sins of their past evil deeds is not a righteous person and they are led to do more evil through envy and jealousy.

A person carries the sins of their past evil deeds when they have not asked for forgiveness and when they have not sincerely repented for their sin.

 

Quran 2:110 Verse 2:110 Be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity and whatever good you do shall be taken with your souls (to the hereafter) and God shall see the good you did. God sees everything you do.

 

Quran 2:111 Verse 2:111 And they (some Jews and some Christians) say, "None shall enter Paradise unless he is a Jew or a Christian." This (belief) is only from their desires. Say (to them), "Show your proof if you are truthful."

(Instead) whoever does wrong shall earn (the punishment for the wrong) and that person shall not find any protector or helper other than God (in the hereafter).

Note 1. Unless God wills in the hereafter for an angel of God or a messenger of God or others to speak but they shall only say what God has permitted them to say.

(Comment 4. No human can say only Jews or only Christians or only Muslims shall enter Paradises because God shall be the only judge on the Day of Judgement.  

The Torah, Gospel and Koran are from one God.

The Taurat, Injil and Quran are from one God.

See Quran 2:5 comments.

 

Quran 2:112 Verse 2:112 It is certain that whoever submits to God and does good (deeds), they shall get their reward from their Lord (God) and they shall have no fear or grief (in the hereafter).

(Comment 1. Who enters Paradise?

Prophet Muhammad corrected the understanding of religion by revealing that anyone who submits to the will of God and who does what is good shall enter Paradise. 

See Quran 2:111 comments.

 

Quran 2:113 Verse 2:113 The Jews say, "The Christians have nothing (the Christian religion is wrong) and the Christians say, "The Jews have nothing (the Jewish religion is wrong) even though they both recite the Scriptures (sent to them by God who revealed the same message in the Torah Taurat to the Jews and in the Gospel Injil to the Christians). Those (stone idol worshippers in Mecca Arabia today Makkah Saudi Arabia who do not know (the Scriptures) say the same thing (that only their religion of stone idol worship is correct). God shall judge between them (the Jews and Christians and the stone idol worshippers) on their arguments on the Day of Judgment.

(Comment 1. Which religion is correct?

Some Christians say the Jewish religion is wrong.

Some Jews say the Christian religion is wrong.

Some Jews and Christians say that the Muslim religion is wrong.

Some Muslims say that the Jewish and Christian religion is wrong.

Prophet Muhammad reveals that God shall judge between them on their arguments on the Day of Judgment.  

(Comment 2. In Quran 2:112 Prophet Muhammad corrected the understanding of religion by revealing that anyone who submits to the will of God and who does what is good shall enter Paradise.

(Comment 3. What does Muslim mean?

Muslim means submitting to God. Muslim means submitting your will to God.

(Comment 4. A Jew who submits to God is a Muslim.

Before Islam a Jew who submitted to God and anyone who submitted to God was a Muslim.

Before Islam a Christian who submitted to God and anyone who submitted to God was a Muslim.

(Comment 6. Every Prophet of God and messenger of God is a Muslim.

Every Prophet of God and messenger of God is a Muslim because they have submitted their will to God.

 

Quran 2:114 Verse 2:114 And who is more unjust than those (stone idol worshippers) who stop people from entering places for the worship of God, where God’s name is celebrated (at the Kabah in Mecca Arabia) and whose zeal (to stop people from worshipping) is to ruin them (in the hereafter)? Such people (as the stone idol worshippers) themselves should not be in a place of worship except if they are there in fear of the Lord (God). For them (the stone idol worshippers in Mecca Arabia) there is disgrace in this world and they shall have a great punishment in the Hereafter.

 

Quran 2:115 Verse 2:115 To God belong the east and the west, whichever way you turn there you shall find the presence of God. Surely God is all-sufficient and all-knowing.

 

Quran 2:116 Verse 2:116 And they (the Christians) say, “God has a son.” No, all glory is only to Him (God) to Him (God) belong whatever is in the heavens and the Earth, everything gives worship to Him (God).

Comment 1. What does son of God mean?

The Quran corrected some Christians who thought that Son of God meant a real biological Son of God.

In the Torah Taurat son of God means “servant of God” therefore in the Gospel Injil the correct meaning of son of God is servant of God.

Comment 2. Why was Prophet Jesus Isa sent to the Jews?

Prophet Jesus Isa was sent by God to explain the correct interpretation of religion to the Jews.

Comment 3. Why was Prophet Muhammad sent to the Jews and the Christians?

600 years after Prophet Jesus Isa, Prophet Muhammad was sent by God to explain the correct interpretation of religion to the Jews and the Christians.

Comment 4. Some Christians misunderstood the meaning of “son of God.”

Some Christians misunderstood the meaning of Son of God by saying that Jesus Isa was a real son of God meaning that Jesus Isa is a partner with God and some Christians believed that Jesus Isa is God.

Some Christians made the human Jesus Isa into a god that replaced the idols of many different gods that were built in the form of human statues in the Roman empire.

In the Torah Taurat God calls this kind of worship “idol worship” which is prohibited by God in the Torah Taurat.

Comment 5. In the Gospel Injil only God knows the time of the end of the earth.

Gospel of Mark 12:29 (A Jewish scribe asked what is the first commandment of God?) and Prophet Jesus Isa answered him, The first of all the commandments (of God) is, Hear (listen), O (all the children of) Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord (God).

Gospel of Mark 12:30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment (of God).

Gospel of Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words (the message from God delivered by Prophet Jesus Isa in the Gospel of Mark 12:29 – 12:30) shall not pass away.

Gospel of Mark 13:32 But the day (the time) of the hour (of the end of the Earth) which no human knows, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son (Prophet Jesus Isa), but only the Father (God knows the time of the hour of the end of the earth).

(Comment 6. Some Christians correctly believe that Jesus Isa is a prophet and a messenger of God.

(Comment 7. God sent Prophet Muhammad to reveal that Prophet Jesus Isa was a servant of God who was created by God so Prophet Jesus Isa is not God but Prophet Jesus Isa is a human who was a prophet and a messenger of God.

(Comment 8. In the time of Prophet Jesus Isa some believed and some disbelieved him in the same way as 600 years after Prophet Jesus Isa some believed and some disbelieved Prophet Muhammad.

(Comment 9. The Gospel Injil confirms the Koran Quran.

See 4. Injil of Isa by John. Gospel of John https://sites.google.com/site/islamandthequran/the-gospel-of-john-chapters-1-3 


Quran 2:117 Verse 2:117 God made the heavens and the earth. When He (God) commands something to happen He (God) only needs to say “Be (created)” and it is (created).

(Comment 1. “Be (created)” means that God decreed every creation.

 

Quran 2:118 Verse 2:118 And those without knowledge of God ask, “Why does God not talk to us?” or “Why does God not show us a sign?” Just as the people of the past use to say. Their hearts are all the same (meaning that people in the past and the present who ask these questions are the same because both have no faith). We (God) have made revelations that are clear signs (clearly recognized, clearly understood) for people who hold strong faith (in God).

 

Quran 2:119 Verse 2:119 Truly We (God) have sent you (Prophet Muhammad) with the good news (of Paradise in the hereafter for those with faith in God) and as a warner (of Hell fire in the hereafter for those with no faith in God). And You (Prophet Muhammad) shall not be responsible for those who shall be in Hell fire.

Note 1. Quran 17:60 Verse 17:60 “.... We (God) warn (people to do what is good and avoid what is evil) and make them afraid (of God by describing the home for evil doers in Hell Fire in the Hereafter) but it only increases them (some of the humans) in nothing but greater disobedience against God (and the commandment to do what is good and avoid what is evil). 

  

Quran 2:120 Verse 2:120 The Jews and the Christians shall never be satisfied with you (Prophet Muhammad) unless you follow their (Jewish or Christian) religion. Say, “God’s guidance is the (only) guidance (I am following).” If you were to follow their (Jewish or Christian) desires after knowledge (from God) has reached you then you (Prophet Muhammad) would have no protector or helper and you would be against God (and God’s commandment to you).

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:111, Quran 2:112 and Quran 2:113.

 

Quran 2:121 Verse 2:121 Those to whom We (God) have given the Scripture (the Torah Taurat to the Jews and the Gospel Injil to the Christians and the Koran Quran to the Muslims) and who recite it (the Scripture) with its true recital (meaning with its true meaning). They are the ones that believe in it (God’s Scripture in the Torah Taurat and in the Gospel Injil and in the Koran Quran). Those who reject faith in it (the Scripture in God’s Torah Taurat and in the Gospel Injil and in the Koran Quran) they are the losers (in the hereafter). 

 

Quran 2:122 Verse 2:122 O Children of Israel, remember My (God’s) favour when I (God) favoured you from all others (by sending God’s revelations to you).

 

Quran 2:123 Verse 2:123 Then guard yourselves against a Day (the Day of Judgment in the hereafter) when no soul can get help from another, when no compensation shall be accepted and no intercession shall be of any use and there shall be no (outside) help (for you).

Note 1. Unless God wills in the hereafter for an angel of God or a messenger of God or others to speak but they shall only say what God has permitted them to say.

 

Quran 2:124 Verse 2:124 And remember when Prophet Abraham Ibrahim was tested (for his faith) by his Lord (God) with certain commands, which he fulfilled, He (God) said, “I shall make you a teacher (of right and wrong) to humans.” (Prophet Abraham Ibrahim) said, “and of my offspring” (shall there be teachers)?” He (God) said “(Yes but) My (God’s) promise does not include wrong-doers and those without faith.”

(Comment 1. The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah and the Gospel.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil.

(Comment 2. If God is real then the same son of Prophet Abraham Ibrahim would be the son to be sacrificed in the Torah Taurat and Koran Quran.

Quran 2:124 Verse 2:124 And remember when Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) was tested (for his faith) by his Lord (God) with certain commands, which he fulfilled. …”

(Comment 3. Prophet Isaac Ishaq is named as the son to be sacrificed by Prophet Abraham Ibrahim in the Torah Taurat of Prophet Moses Musa.

(Comment 4. Which son of Prophet Abraham Ibrahim was to be sacrificed in the Koran Quran?

The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah Taurat.

The only people who God blesses in the story of the sacrifice in Quran chapter 37 are Prophet Abraham Ibrahim and Prophet Isaac Ishaq both separately and together as the father and the son.

God names Prophet Isaac Ishaq as “the good news” son 9 times in Quran chapter 11, 15, 19, 29 and 51.

God names Prophet Isaac Ishaq four times in Quran chapter 37 (twice as the good news and twice by name).

Since God uses “the good news” son 9 times in Quran chapter 11, 15, 19, 29 and 51 for Prophet Isaac Ishaq it is clear that the two uses of the good news son in Quran chapter 37 are both Prophet Isaac Ishaq.

In the Torah Taurat and the Koran Quran the good news son in the story of Prophet Abraham Ibrahim is always the name for Prophet Isaac Ishaq.

(Comment 5. The same son of Prophet Abraham Ibrahim was to be sacrificed in the Torah Taurat and Koran Quran.

The Quran is a reminder of what is in the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil.

The Quran is a confirmation of what came before it in the Torah Taurat and the Gospel Injil.

Quran 2:125 Verse 2:125 Remember when We (God) made the House (in Bakkah Baka Bakka Bakk’a Becca Bekka, the House called the Kaaba in Mecca Arabia today the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia) a place of assembly and safety and made where Prophet Abraham Ibrahim stood a place of worship, and We (God) imposed a duty on Prophet Abraham Ibrahim and Prophet Ishmael Ismail saying, “Keep My (God’s) house holy for those who walk around it in contemplation, prayer, bowing and prostration.”

Comment 1. In the Torah Taurat we learn that Prophet Ishmael Ismail was an expert with arrows and led a life as a hunter.

Comment 2. In the Koran Quran we learn that Prophet Ishmael Ismail and Prophet Abraham Ibrahim built a place of prayer to God. 

Comment 3. The Torah Taurat explains the personality of Prophet Ishmael Ismail in relation to his life style as a hunter and the Quran explains a second personality of Prophet Ishmael Ismail in relation to his service to God.

Comment 4. Quran 3:96 Verse 3:96 The first House (of worship) appointed for humans was the one at Bakkah Baka, Bakka, Bakk’a, Becca, Bekka the House called the Kaaba in Mecca Arabia today the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia), (it is) full of (God’s) blessing and (it is) a guidance for the peoples of the world.

 

Quran 2:126 Verse 2:126 And remember when Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) said, "My Lord (God), make this (Mecca) a city of peace, and provide fruits for its people who believe in God and the Last Day (of the Earth, the Resurrection and the Judgement)." He (God) said, "(Yes I shall) and for those who disbelieve I will provide for them enjoyment for a little while (on the Earth) and then (in the hereafter) I (God) shall compel them to the punishment of fire and how bad is their destination (which is the home for evil-doers in the hereafter).”

Note 1. Quran 17:60 Verse 17:60 “.... We (God) warn (people to do what is good and avoid what is evil) and make them afraid (of God by describing the home for evil doers in Hell Fire in the Hereafter) but it only increases them (some of the humans) in nothing but greater disobedience against God (and the commandment to do what is good and avoid what is evil). 

  

Quran 2:127 Verse 2:127 And remember when Prophet Abraham Ibrahim with Prophet Ishmael Ismail built the foundations of the House (of worship in Bakkah Baka Bakka Bakk’a Becca Bekka, the House called the Kaaba in Mecca Arabia today the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia, and Prophet Abraham Ibrahim prayed): "Our Lord (God), accept this (Holy House) from us. You (God) are the all hearing and the all knowing.”  

Comment 1. Quran 3:96 Verse 3:96 The first House (of worship) appointed for humans was the one at Bakkah Baka, Bakka, Bakk’a, Becca, Bekka the House called the Kaaba in Mecca Arabia today the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia), (it is) full of (God’s) blessing and (it is) a guidance for the peoples of the world.

 

Quran 2:128 Verse 2:128 “Our Lord (God), make us follow your will (Muslim are those who submit to God) and make from our children, a nation, that follows your will (Muslim are those who submit to God) and show us how to worship (correctly) and turn to us (in mercy), and forgive us (our sins) because You (God) are the forgiver and the Most Merciful.”

(Comment 1. God is always ready to give forgiveness because God is the Most Merciful.

There is no sin God shall not forgive if you sincerely ask God for forgiveness and then do only what is good.

 

Quran 2:129 Verse 2:129 “Our Lord (God), send to them (our children) a messenger who shall recite Your (God’s) revelations and instruct them in scripture and wisdom so they are righteous. You (God) are the mighty and the wise.”

 

Quran 2:130 Verse 2:130 And who would turn away from the religion of Prophet Abraham Ibrahim except the person who has a soul that is foolish (not to follow God)? We (God) chose him (Prophet Abraham Ibrahim as a leader of righteousness in the world) and in the end (on the Day of Resurrection and Judgement) he (Prophet Abraham Ibrahim) shall be among the righteous (in the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:131 Verse 2:131 When his Lord (God) said to him (Prophet Abraham Ibrahim) “submit” (yourself to God’s will), he (Prophet Abraham Ibrahim) said, “I have submitted (my will) to the (commands of God who is the) Lord of the Worlds.”

(Comment 1. What does Muslim mean?

Muslim means submitting to God. Muslim means submitting your will to God.

 

Quran 2:132 Verse 2:132 And this was what Prophet Abraham Ibrahim left to his sons and to Prophet Jacob Yaqub Israel: "O my sons, God has chosen this religion (faith, belief) for you, so do not die without submitting (your will to God)."

(Comment 1. What does Muslim mean?

Muslim means submission to God. Muslim means the submission of your will to God.

 

Quran 2:133 Verse 2:133 Were you witnesses when death was near to Prophet Jacob Yaqub Israel when he said to his sons (the children of Israel), “What shall you worship after me?” They said, “We shall worship your God, the God of your fathers, Prophet Abraham Ibrahim and Prophet Ishmael Ismail and Prophet Isaac Ishaq, and to Him the one God (of every creation) we submit (our will and our faith).”

 

Quran 2:134 Verse 2:134 Those people (Prophet Abraham Ibrahim and Prophet Ishmael Ismail and Prophet Isaac Isaq and Prophet Jacob Yaqub and many generations after them have) passed away. They shall have what they earned (the righteous rewards earned in their life shall be given to them in the hereafter) and you (the current generation) shall have what (righteous rewards) you earn (in this life given to you in the hereafter). You will not be questioned about what they (the people in past generations) did (you will be questioned on what you did so worry more about what you are doing than what other people did before you because it is what you do by which God shall judge you in the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:135 Verse 2:135 They (the Jews and the Christians) say, "Become Jews or Christians if you want be guided (to God)." (Prophet Muhammad) say (to them), “No, I would rather follow the religion of Prophet Abraham Ibrahim because he did not worship idols (the idol of this life, idols of God or any partners with God).” 

(Comment 1. Who enters Paradise?

Prophet Muhammad corrected the understanding of the word of God among some Jews who incorrectly said only Jews enter Paradise.

Prophet Muhammad corrected the understanding of the word of God among some Christians who incorrectly said that only Christians enter Paradise.

Prophet Muhammad corrected the understanding of the word of God among some Muslims who incorrectly said that only Muslims enter Paradise.

Prophet Muhammad corrected the understanding of religion by revealing that anyone who submits to the will of God and who does what is good shall enter Paradise.

No human can say only Jews or only Christians or only Muslims shall enter Paradises because God shall be the only judge on the day of Judgement.  


See 1. Who shall go to Paradise? Jew or Christian or Muslim? See in Quran 2:110 – 2:113

We make no difference between one (prophet) and another (we say that all the prophets have the same message which is that there is only one God who is the creator of every creation) and we submit (our will) to (the will of) God."

Quran 2:137 Verse 2:137 If they (the Jews and the Christians) believe as you (Prophet Muhammad) believe in Him (God), then they (the Jews and the Christians) are correctly guided but if they (the Jews and the Christians) turn away then (they have turned away from God’s guidance and) they are in opposition (to God), and God shall be sufficient (protection) for you (Prophet Muhammad) against them. He (God) hears all and knows all.

Comment 1. Which is the correct religion?

If the Jews and the Christians believe in one God like the Muslims believe in one God then the Jews and the Christians and the Muslims who believe in one God and do good deeds are correctly guided. See Quran 2:137.

Say (Prophet Muhammad to them), “Do you know (the answer) better than God? (God knows the truth about their faith). (A more important question might be) who is more unjust than those who conceal knowledge that they have from (the revelations of) God? (This refers to some Jews and some Christians who pick and chose what they want in the scriptures and disregard other parts to make arguments, some matters are invented and other matters that are known are hidden by not mentioning them). God is not unaware of what you do.”

(Comment 1. Who belonged to which religion?

Where the people of the past Jewish?

Where the people of the past Christian?

They shall have what they earned (of righteous rewards given to them in the hereafter) and you shall have what (righteous rewards) you earn (in this life given to you in the hereafter). You shall not be asked about what other people did in past generations (meaning pay attention to what you do in your life because this life has rewards for righteousness that will be given to you in the hereafter. God knows the truth about the faith and the religion of the people of past generations and there is no reward in the hereafter for you in arguing this question).

(Comment 1. The people of the past have earned their reward for the hereafter.

In the hereafter you shall not be asked about what other people did in past generations.

So pay attention to what you do in your life because a righteous life is rewarded in the hereafter.

 

Quran 2:142 Verse 2:142 (The Jews pray by facing the Holy Jewish Temple ruins in Jerusalem Al-Quds, Palestine today in Israel and Palestine). The foolish (those without faith in the messenger of God) among the people shall say “What has turned them (Prophet Muhammad and his followers) away from their qiblah (the direction faced during prayer towards the Holy Jewish Temple ruins in Jerusalem Al-Quds) which they used to face? Say, “To God belong both east and west (meaning whichever way you turn there you shall find the presence of God). He (God) guides whom He (God) wills to the right path. –

Comment 1. God made a test to show who believed Prophet Muhammad and who pretended to believe Prophet Muhammad. See Quran 2:143.

 

Quran 2:143 Verse 2:143 And so We (God) have made you a moderate people (moderate nation, moderate community, a just and balanced community, sensible and reasonable community, pleasant and temperate community, not too little and not excessive but a medium community, not below expectation and not excessive but a middle community, community of the middle way, the best community, not extreme and not fanatical) so that you may be an example (of the best community, a moderate people, a just and balance nation) to all people and the Prophet is an example for you. We (God) determined the qiblah (qibla, the direction to face during prayer and changed it from facing the Holy Jewish Temple ruins in Jerusalem Al-Quds to facing the the Kaaba in Mecca Arabia today the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia) only to test who followed the messenger (Prophet Muhammad) and who turned away. It is difficult (to pray and accept facing a new direction during prayer) except for those whom God has guided (on the right path to accept the change). God would not have caused you to lose your faith (with this test if your faith was genuine) because God is full of kindness and Most Merciful. – 

Comment 1. Islam is the religion of moderation.

Extreme behaviour is not allowed in Islam.

Comment 2The religion of Islam and the belief in Islam is correct in moderation. 

Religion and belief is not for God when it is extreme or fanatical. 

The correct belief is the belief that no person should be made to fear a human more than they fear God.

The moderate belief is the belief that no person should be made to fear a human more than they fear God.

The best belief is the belief that no person should be made to fear a human more than they fear God.

The correct religion is the religion where no person is made to fear a human more than they fear God.

The moderate religion is the religion where no person is made to fear a human more than they fear God.

The best religion is the religion where no person is made to fear a human more than they fear God.

Comment 3Religion and belief is not for God when it is extreme or fanatical. 

Comment 4. What is a terrorist? 

A terrorist is a person who uses terrorism to achieve a political aim. 

Terrorism is a criminal act intended to provoke a state of terror in the general public by the use of violence (hostility, brutality, cruelty, aggression, and killing) and intimidation (threats, fear, coercion, bullying, and terrorization) in the pursuit of political aims. 

A terrorist deliberately (knowingly, intentionally, purposefully) attacks civilians (unarmed people, defenceless people, vulnerable people). 

No religion allows the deliberate killing of civilians. 

Nothing in any religion can justify the deliberate killing of civilians (unarmed people). 


Quran 3:151 Verse 3:151 (On the Day of Resurrection and JudgementWe (Godshall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved (in God) because of what they (the stone idol worship in Mecca Arabia today in Makkah Saudi Arabia) associated (in the form of stone idol statues) with God, (these are stone idols) for which He (God) had sent no authority (for you to worship idols instead of correctly praying to God who is the creator of every creation). Those wrong doers shall live in the punishment of fire which is the home for evil (in the hereafter). 

Note 1. God has authority to terrify humans. 

God has not given humans authority to terrify other humans. 

Humans must only fear God. 

It is not fitting to cause a human to fear other humans more than they should fear God. 

Note 2. Why does God terrify humans? 

Quran 17:60 Verse 17:60 “.... We (God) warn (people to do what is good and avoid what is evil) and make them afraid (of God by describing the home for evil doers in Hell Fire in the Hereafter) but it only increases them (some of the humans) in nothing but greater disobedience against God (and the commandment to do what is good and avoid what is evil).

Note 3. Why should humans fear God more than fearing humans? 

Fear no one but God. 

Quran 2:40 Verse 2:40 “…fear no one except Me (God).”  

Quran 2:150 Verse 2:150 “… So do not fear them (humans) but fear Me (God) so that I (God) may complete My (God’s) blessings on you and that you may walk on the right path.

Quran 2:155 Verse 2:155 “And We (God) shall test you with some fear …”

Quran 2:189 Verse 2:189 “… righteous (is the person) who fears God.”

Quran 3:173 Verse 3:173 Those to whom the people said, "the people have gathered against you so fear them" instead increased the faith of the faithful and they said, "God (alone) is all we need and He (God) is our best protector."

Quran 3:175 Verse 3:175 It is only Satan Shaitan that suggests that you fear his supporters, so do not fear them but fear Me (God), if you have (true) faith (in God).

Quran 4:77 Verse 4:77 “… then suddenly some of them feared humans as they feared God or even feared humans more than they feared God …. The Hereafter is much better for those who fear God …”

Quran 5:3 Verse 5:3 “… Today those without faith have despair of (not being able to destroy) your religion, sodo not fear them (humans) but fear Me (God) instead. …”

Quran 5:44 Verse 5:44 “… So do not fear humans but fear Me (God)… Whoever does not judge by what God has revealed is a disbeliever in God.”

Quran 5:54 Verse 5:54 O you who have faith (in God), Whoever leaves his religion, (know that soon) God shall bring a people (to replace them) whom He (God) loves and who love Him (God) and (they shall be) humble toward those with faith (in God) and stern toward those without faith (in God), striving in the way of God and without fear of anyone who may criticize them. …”

Quran 9:13 Verse 9:13 “… Surely God has more right that you should fear Him (God), if you are (true) believers (in God).”

Quran 12:57 Verse 12:57 “… And the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believe and who used to fear God. 

Quran 16:50 Verse 16:50 They (who believe in God) fear their Lord (God) above them (humans) and they do what they are commanded. 

Quran 16:52 Verse 16:52 To Him (God) belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth and to Him (God) is due constant worship. Shall you then fear anyone other than God? 

Note 4. Do not make humans afraid of other humans. 

Teaching God’s word is better than terrorism. 

Teaching God’s word is better than intimidation. 

Do not make humans fear a human.

Fear God.

The correct belief is the belief that no person should be made to fear a human more than God.

The moderate belief is the belief that no person should be made to fear a human more than God.

The best belief is the belief that no person should be made to fear a human more than God.

The correct religion is the religion where no person is made to fear a human more than God.

The moderate religion is the religion where no person is made to fear a human more than God.

The best religion is the religion where no person is made to fear a human more than God. 

Comment 5. God protected the messenger of God from unknowingly committing the sin of terrorism in Quran 48:25.

Quran 48:25 Verse 48:25 They (the stone idol worshippers of Mecca Arabia today Makkah Saudi Arabia) are the ones who disbelieved (in God) and turned you (Prophet Muhammad) away from the Sacred Mosque (Al-Masjid-al-Haram in Makkah) and your offerings (of 70 camels to God for the feeding of the poor which) were prevented from reaching their place of sacrifice. (You would have been allowed to enter Makkah and fight for the sake of God to worship God at God’s Sacred Mosque in Makkah) if it were not that there were believing men and women who you did not know that you may have trampled (with your offerings of 70 camels that would have killed both the believers who you did not know and the non believers because of a stampede by those animals caused by fighting that God knew would occur) and so unknowingly you would have an evil deed against you(However God stopped you from entering Makkah) so that God might bring to His (God’s) mercy whom He (God) willed (by preventing you from making sin through your actions which would have killed innocent people). If they (the believers who you did not know and the wrongdoers who had sinned against God) had been apart (so that only the wrongdoers who had sinned against God were present) then We (God) would have punished those of them who disbelieved with a painful punishment (by allowing you into Makkah and allowing the animal stampede to occur to punish the stone idol worshippers who forbid your worship of God at the Sacred Mosque Al-Masjid-al-Haram in Makkah).

Note 1. In the Quran human actions that will result in the sudden killing of innocent people together with wrongdoers is not acceptable in the eyes of God.

 

Quran 2:144 Verse 2:144 We (God) have seen the turning of your face to heaven (for guidance, Prophet Muhammad). And now truly We (God) shall make you turn (in prayer) toward a qiblah (prayer direction) which is dear to you. So turn your face toward the sacred place of worship (the the Kaaba in Mecca Arabia today the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia), and you (who have faith) wherever you are, turn your faces toward it (the Kabah in Makkah when you pray). Those who have received the Scripture know that (this revelation) is the truth from their Lord (God because those of them who believe in God shall believe the messenger of God). And God knows what they do. –

Comment 1. God made a test to show who believed Prophet Muhammad and who pretended to believe Prophet Muhammad. See Quran 2:143.

 

Quran 2:145 Verse 2:145 And even if you bring to those who have been given the Scripture (the Jews and the Christians) every sign (from God) they (the Jews and the Christians) would (still) not follow your qiblah (the Muslim direction to face during prayer) and you (the Muslims) cannot be a follower of their qiblah (their direction to face during prayer) and they (the Jews and the Christians) are not followers of each other's qiblah (the direction to face during prayer). So if you (Prophet Muhammad) follow their desires after this knowledge has come to you (from God), then you would be among the wrongdoers.

Comment 1. God made a test to show who believed Prophet Muhammad and who pretended to believe Prophet Muhammad. See Quran 2:143. 

Comment 2. Which is the correct religion?

2a. The revelation of Prophet Jesus Isa caused disagreement among the Jews and a new religion Christianity was created.

2b. The revelation of Prophet Muhammad caused disagreement among the Jews and the Christians and a new religion Isalm was created.

2c. God created the Jewish religion, the Christian religion and the Muslim religion.

2d. If the Jews and the Christians believe in one God like the Muslims believe in one God then the Jews and the Christians and the Muslims who believe in one God and do good deeds are correctly guided. 

See Quran 2:137.

(Comment 4. All the prophets and messengers of God have the same message that there is one creator of all creation.

The Torah, Gospel and Koran are from one God.

The Taurat, Injil and Quran are from one God.

See Quran 2:5 comments.

 

Quran 2:146 Verse 2:146 The people of the Scripture (the Jews of Yathrib Arabia today Medina Saudi Arabia) know him (Prophet Muhammad) as (clearly as) they know their own sons, but some of them (the Jews of Yathrib) conceal this truth.

(Comment 1. The recognition of Prophet Muhammad as a messenger of God who was known by the Jews in Yathrib, Arabia “as clearly as they know their own sons” came from Rabbi Al-Husayn bin Salam who became Abdullah bin Salam.

(Comment 2. It is reported that Rabbi Al-Husayn bin Salam who became Abdullah bin Salam saw Prophet Muhammad when Prophet Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Yathrib in 1 AH (622 CE, 622 AD). He was the first Jewish Rabbi to become a Muslim.

  

Quran 2:147 Verse 2:147 The truth (in the Koran Quran) is from your Lord (God), so do not be in doubt.

 

Quran 2:148 Verse 2:148 Every people have a direction to which they face (during prayer), so quickly come together towards all that is good from wherever you are when God calls you to come together (in worship), surely God has power over all things.

Comment 1. Which is the correct religion?

1a. Every people have a direction to which they face during prayer (Quran 2:148 Verse 2:148).

1b. The Jewish people face Jerusalem Al-Quds during prayer.

1c. The early Christian people faced East towards the rising Sun during prayer.

1d. The Muslim people face the Kabah in Makkah Saudi Arabia during prayer.

1e. God created all religions and ordained their direction for the offering of public prayers in an assembly.

1f. If the Jews and the Christians believe in one God like the Muslims believe in one God then the Jews and the Christians and the Muslims who believe in one God and do good deeds are correctly guided.

See Quran 2:137.

 

Quran 2:149 Verse 2:149 Wherever you are (when it is time for prayer) turn your face towards the sacred place of worship (the Kabah in Makkah). It is the truth from your Lord (God) and God knows what you do.

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:148 comments.

 

Quran 2:150 Verse 2:150 Wherever you come from (when it is time for prayer) turn your face towards the sacred place of worship (the Kabah in Makkah). Wherever you are (when it is time for prayer) turn your faces towards it (the Kabah in Makkah) so that people shall have no argument with you (about the correct way to face during prayer), except those who are wrong doers. So do not fear them but fear Me (God) so that I (God) may complete My (God’s) blessings on you so that you may walk on the right path.

(Comment 1. See Quran 2:148 comments.

 

Quran 2:151 Verse 2:151 We (God) sent to you a messenger (Prophet Muhammad who is) from among you (the people of Arabia today Saudi Arabia), who recites to you Our (God’s) verses and cleans you (of sin) and teaches you the Book (the Quran) and wisdom (through the example of Prophet Muhammad) and teaches you (the people of Arabia) what you did not know.

Comment 1. See Quran 2:78 comments.

 

Quran 2:152 Verse 2:152 Therefore remember Me (God) and I (God) shall remember you and be thankful to Me (God), and do not lose your faith in Me (God).

 

Quran 2:153 Verse 2:153 All you who believe, seek assistance through patience and prayer. God is with the patient.

Comment 1. Quran 2:153 Verse 2:153 “… God is with the patient.

Quran 103:2 Verse 103:2 Humans are lost (from the mercy of God) –

Quran 103:3 Verse 103:3 Except those who believe and who do righteous deeds and who encourage each other to the truth and encourage each other to have patience.

 

Quran 2:154 Verse 2:154 And do not speak (when delivering news) of those who are killed in the cause of God as being “dead”, No, they are alive (their soul is alive), but you cannot see them.

Comment 1. The souls of dead people are alive in the care of God until the day they are resurrected on the Day of Judgement in a spiritual body that can feel the reward or punishment that they had earned.

Quran 2:155 Verse 2:155 And We (God) shall test you with some fear and hunger and loss of lives, wealth and the fruits (of your labour) and (We meaning God revealed through Angel Gabriel Jibril to Prophet Muhammad) give good news (of Paradise in the hereafter) to those who are patient.

(Comment 1. The stresses of life are a test of patience from God (Quran 2:155).

Quran 30:60 Verse 30:60 So have patience (Prophet Muhammad), God’s promise is the truth. Do not let those who have no certainty (in their belief in God) make you (Prophet Muhammad) impatient.

Quran 70:5 Verse 70:5 So (Prophet Muhammad) be patient by being gracious in (your) patience (towards the stone idol worshippers in Makkah).

Quran 73:10 Verse 73:10 And have patience with what they (the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) say and when you leave them be polite (to them).

Quran 90:17 Verse 90:17 And be a person who believes (in God who is your creator) and encourage each other to be patient and to show compassion.

Quran 103:3 Verse 103:3 Except those who believe and who do righteous deeds and who encourage each other to the truth and encourage each other to have patience.

 

Quran 2:156 Verse 2:156 (Those) who say, when misfortune comes, "To God we belong, and to Him (God) we shall return",   

(Comment 1. The stresses of life are a test of patience from God (Quran 2:155).

 

Quran 2:157 Verse 2:157 those are the people on whom (descend) blessings and mercy from their Lord (God) and they are the people that receive guidance to the right path (because they have faith and they do what is good).

(Comment 1. The stresses of life are a test of patience from God (Quran 2:155).

 

Quran 2:158 Verse 2:158 (The 2 hills near Makkah in Arabia) As-Safa Safa Safah Suffa Zafa and Al-Marwah Marwa Marwah Merwah are among the signs of God. It is therefore not a sin for anyone who is on pilgrimage to the House (of God, the Kabah in Makkah) or who visits it at other times to go (walk) between them (even though this was done by the stone idol worshippers of Makkah). And the person who voluntarily does a good thing (shall find that) God is responsive (to them) and (God is) all knowing (of what you do).

 

Quran 2:159 Verse 2:159 Those who hide (from people) what We (God) sent down of clear proofs and guidance (such as Torah Deuteronomy 18:15 – 18:22 which reveal God’s messengers and prophets) after We (God through angle Gabriel Jibril to Prophet Muhammad) made it clear for the people of the Scripture (the Jews of Yathrib), they (who hide by not revealing all of the Torah Taurat) are the ones who shall receive the curse of God (misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance for their disbelief in God) and the curse of those entitled to curse (at those who lack faith in God, the creator).

Comment 1. The curse of God (misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) on those that knew God and then disbelieved God. See Quran 2:88 – 2:89 and 2:104 comment 1.

 Comment 2. The combined curse of God (misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) and of angels and of humans is on those that knew God and then disbelieved in God. See Quran 2:161.

Comment 3. The wrath after wrath from God is anger after anger from God on those that knew God and then disbelieved in God. See Quran 2:90.

Comment 4. The hiding of parts of the Torah Taurat by some Jews of Yathrib Arabia refers to the selective quoting of the Torah Taurat by not telling people about some of the revelations from God that exist in the Torah in regards to the signs that indicate that a person is God’s messenger or prophet. There is a curse on the person who hides such revelations of God from other people.

Comment 5. Concealing  parts of the Torah Taurat by some Jews in Yathrib refers to the signs of God’s messengers and God’s prophets.

See 8. Where is Prophet Muhammad in the Bible?

Comment 1. God confirms that stoning to death for adultery does not apply today.

God confirms what was revealed before the Quran in the Torah and in the Gospel.

The Torah Taurat of Prophet Moses Musa introduced stoning to death for adultery.

God did not order stoning to death for adultery after Prophet Moses Musa in the time of King David Dawud.

After the time of Prophet David Dawud the Gospel Injil of Prophet Jesus Isa made stoning to death for adultery impossible because of the interpretation that no one can throw the first stone except a person who has no sin however there is no human without a sin.

Comment 2. Today Jews do not kill anyone for adultery.

Today Christians do not kill anyone for adultery.

Today most Muslims do not kill anyone for adultery.

Stoning to death for adultery in the Torah Taurat.

Stoning to death for adultery in the Gospel Injil.

Stoning to death for adultery in the Koran Quran.

See Quran 2:37, 2:58, 2:106, 2:176 and 2:177

Comment 3. Forgiveness for adultery in the Quran.

The Koran Quran does not order death for adultery.

In the Koran Quran the punishment for illegal sexual intercourse for unmarried Muslims is Quran 4:15 – 4:18.

In the Koran Quran the punishment for adultery by married Muslims is Quran 4:25 and 24:1 – 24:2.

Forgiveness for all sins including adultery is confirmed in Quran 4:17 – 4:18, 4:110, 25:68 – 25:71.

Quran 2:128 explains that God is always ready to forgive because God is the Most Merciful.

Quran 2:161 Verse 2:161 Those who reject faith and who die without faith, on them is the combined curse of God and of angels and of humans (the combined misfortune from God, misfortune of having lost God’s guidance).

Comment 1. The curse of God (misfortune from God, the misfortune of having lost God’s guidance) on those that knew God and then disbelieved in God. See Quran 2:88 – 2:89, 2:104 comment 1 and 2:159.

Comment 2. The wrath after wrath (anger after anger) from God on those that knew God and then disbelieved God. See Quran 2:90.

  

Quran 2:162 Verse 2:162 They shall live in there (under God’s wrath in Hell) and their punishment shall not be reduced and they shall not be excused (in the hereafter because they had no faith in God).

Note 1. Quran 17:60 Verse 17:60 “.... We (God) warn (people to do what is good and avoid what is evil) and make them afraid (of God by describing the home for evil doers in Hell Fire in the Hereafter) but it only increases them (some of the humans) in nothing but greater disobedience against God (and the commandment to do what is good and avoid what is evil). 

 

Quran 2:163 Verse 2:163 And your God is One God, there is no God but He, the most kind (who created you) and the Most Merciful (in the hereafter to those who had faith in God). 

Comment 1. If the Jews and the Christians believe in one God like the Muslims believe in one God then the Jews and the Christians and the Muslims who believe in one God and do good deeds are correctly guided. See Quran 2:137.

Comment 2.  The Torah, Gospel and Koran are from one God. The Taurat, Injil and Quran are from one God, See Quran 2:5 comments.

 

Quran 2:164 Verse 2:164 See in the creation of the heavens and the earth, see in the changes of the night and the day, see in the sailing of ships through the sea for the benefit of humans, see in the rain which God sends down from the skies and the life which He (God) gives to an earth that is dead, see in the animals of all kinds that He (God) scatters throughout the earth, see in the change of the winds, see in the clouds which are held between the sky and the earth. (Here) indeed are signs (evidence of the creator) for people that reason. 


Quran 2:165 Verse 2:165 Yet there are people who take (for worship) others besides God, as equal (with God, these are some of the Christians who pray to Prophet Jesus Isa instead of praying to God and the stone idol worshipers who pray to stones instead of praying to God). They love them (the Christians love wooden idols of Prophet Jesus Isa and the idol worshipers love stone idols in the same way) as they should love God (only). But those who believe love God more (than anything or anyone else). If only those who do wrong could see their punishment (in the hereafter for their lack of faith in the one God who is the creator of every creation). All power belongs to God and God is severe in punishment (to those without faith in God).  

(Comment 1. They love them in the same way as they should only love God means “The Christians love wooden idols of Prophet Jesus Isa and the idol worshipers love stone idols in the same way as they should be in love only with God who is the one who created every creation.”  

 

Quran 2:166 Verse 2:166 (On the Day of Judgement) when those who were followed (such as Prophet Jesus Isa shall) disown (by declaring himself innocent of) those who (incorrectly) followed (him by wrongfully misleading others when they said that Prophet Jesus Isa was God or was an equal partner with God), those followers (that said the messenger of God is God or an equal partner with God) shall see (in the hereafter) their punishment and they shall see that all their relations (ancestors) disown them (because of their disbelief in God who has no partners and who is the creator of every creation).  

Comment 1. Jesus on the Day of Judgement. 

Isa on the Day of Judgement. 

On the Day of Judgement Prophet Jesus Isa shall deny to God that he (Prophet Jesus Isa) had misled his followers who had started to say that Prophet Jesus Isa was God after Prophet Jesus Isa had left the earth).

Gospel of Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me (Prophet Jesus Isa) in that day (The Day of Judgement), “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name we have cast out devils? And in your name we have done many wonderful works?

Gospel of Matthew 7:23 And then I (Prophet Jesus Isa) will declare to them (and to God), “I never knew you: depart from me, you (and your) works of wickedness”.

Comment 2. In the Gospel Jesus is not God because only God knows the time of the end of the earth.

In the Injil Isa is not God because only God knows the time of the end of the earth.

Gospel of Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words (the message from God delivered by Prophet Jesus in the Gospel of Mark 12:29 – 12:30) shall not pass away.

Gospel of Mark 13:32 But the day (the time) of the hour (of the end of the Earth) which no human knows, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son (Son meaning the servant of God, Prophet Jesus Isa), but only the Father (God knows the time of the hour of the end of the earth).

Comment 3. In the Gospel there is only one God.

In the Injil there is only one God. 

Gospel of Mark 12:29 (A Jewish scribe asked what is the first commandment of God?) and Prophet Jesus Isa answered him, The first of all the commandments (of God) is, Hear (listen), O (all the children of) Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord (God).

Gospel of Mark 12:30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment (of God).

Quran 2:167 Verse 2:167 And those who followed (Prophet Jesus Isa and who wrongfully said that Prophet Jesus Isa was God or an equal partner with God) shall say (in the hereafter), "If only we had one more chance to return (to the worldly life), we would disown (declare ourselves as innocent from) them (God’s prophet) as they (the prophet) have disowned (declared themselves innocent from) us." Thus God shall show them that their deeds are nothing but (insincere) regrets. And they shall have no way out of the fire of punishment (because of their disbelief and insincerity to God).

 

Quran 2:168 Verse 2:168 O people, eat the lawful and good things that are on the earth and do not follow the footsteps of Satan Shaitan, he is to you (humans) an open enemy.

 

Quran 2:169 Verse 2:169 He (Satan Shaitan) commands you to do only what is evil and sinful and tries to make you say things against God, things of which you have no knowledge.

Comment 1. Satan tries to make you say things against God.

Comment 2. Jesus never said he was God. 

Isa never said he was God.

Prophet Jesus Isa said God is greater than him.

Gospel of John 14:28 "You heard that I (Prophet Jesus Isa) said to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me (Prophet Jesus Isa), you would have rejoiced because I (Prophet Jesus Isa) go to the Father (God), for the Father (God) is greater than I (Prophet Jesus Isa).

(Comment 3. Jesus never said pray to me.

Isa never said pray to me.

Prophet Jesus Isa said you must pray to God yourself.


Gospel of John 15:16 You did not choose me but I (Prophet Jesus Isa) chose you, and appointed you (as my disciples, as my followers) so that you would go and bear fruit (by spreading the belief in God), and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father (God) in my name (meaning, “I pray to God in the name of the messenger of God who is Prophet Jesus Isa”), He (God) may give to you. (Meaning that all prayer must be directed to God, not to Prophet Jesus Isa).

 

Gospel of John 16:26 "In that day you will ask in my name (“I pray to God in the name of the messenger of God who is Prophet Jesus Isa”), and I (Prophet Jesus Isa) do not say to you that I (Prophet Jesus Isa) will request of the Father (God) on your behalf (Meaning that all prayer must be directed to God, not to Prophet Jesus Isa because creations have no power to hear pray and creations have no power to pass on prayers to God. Only God has the power to hear prayer because God is the creator of every creation).

Note 1. Prophet Jesus Isa the created human reminds humans that Prophet Jesus Isa shall not pray to God for you.

You yourself must pray to God not to Prophet Jesus Isa because only God the creator has power to hear prayer and grant requests.

Prophet Jesus Isa says this so that on the Day of Judgement no one shall be able to say that Prophet Jesus Isa misled the people to believe that Prophet Jesus Isa was God).

Comment 4. Like every prophet before him, Jesus said another prophet shall come after him. Why?

Gospel of John 16:9 ­(Prophet Jesus Isa said that another messenger, The Comforter, would come after him and judge) concerning sin, “because they (the children of Israel) do not believe me (Prophet Jesus Isa)” (and therefore they do not believe God who sent Prophet Jesus Isa as the messenger of God to warn the children of Israel that they are making sin, wrong doing).

(Note 1. Like every prophet of God, Prophet Jesus said another messenger would come after him in the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26 – 15:27, 16:7 – 16:15 

Comment 5. God tests every human including Jesus with Satan (the devil, Shaitan).

God tests every human including Isa with Satan (the devil, Shaitan).

Those who obey Satan Shaitan fail the test of life that God has given.

Those who reject Satan Shaitan pass the test of life that God has given.

Comment 6. Satan invites those without knowledge of God to sin by whispering false things to them about God such as -

God has 3 parts (wrong there is only one God),

God is Jesus Isa (wrong Jesus Isa is a human and a prophet and a messenger of God),

Pray to Jesus Isa (wrong only God has the power to hear prayer),

Pray to Mary Mariam (wrong only God has the power to hear prayer),

Pray to saints (wrong only God has the power to hear prayer),

Humans are in the real image of God (wrong this encourages the worship of idols in the image of humans such as idols of the human Jesus Isa, idols in the image of Mary Mariam and idols in the image of saints.

A correct understanding of humans are in the image of God is that humans who are kind and merciful follow in the image meaning in the example of God because God is the most kind and the most merciful.

Comment 7. God is unique and does not resemble his creations in any way.

Anything that resembles the creation with eyes, hands, feet etc could not create the Universe.

The image of the creator is like nothing we can ever imagine and so the image of God is unique to God and does not look like any creation.

Comment 8. The image of God is best understood as the gift possessed by humans to forgive and love each other.

Forgiveness and love are the way of God, the gift of God, the image of God that humans are able to give to each other. 

Comment 9. Only God the creator can hear prayer and so praying to someone or something else is like praying to an idol (idol worship).

Comment 10. No one on the Earth is God.

Gospel of Matthew 23:9 (Jesus Isa said) and call no one on earth (including Jesus Isa) your father (God), because there is only one father (God) for you, the heavenly one …”

(Note 1. No one on the Earth is God because everything on the Earth is created by God.

God is not in one place however to make clear that Jesus Isa is not God the expression “God in heaven” is used to show that Jesus Isa who is on the Earth is not God).

Quran 2:170 Verse 2:170 When it is said to them (the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) "Follow what God has revealed," They say "No, we shall follow the ways of our fathers". What, even though your fathers had no understanding (by worshipping stone idols) and no guidance (from God)?


Quran 2:171 Verse 2:171 The example of those (stone idol worshippers in Makkah) who disbelieve (in God) is like a person who shouts out to something (like stone idols) that can not hear anything. It (what they do) is nothing but a shout and a call.. They are deaf (to words that are against their stone idol worship), dumb (they cannot speak the truth about their stone idol worship), and blind (they cannot see the true path about their stone idol worship) so they do not understand what they are doing (when they worship stones).

 

Quran 2:172 Verse 2:172 All you who believe (in God), eat the good things that We (God) have provided to you and give thanks to God when you worship Him.

 

Quran 2:173 Verse 2:173 He (God) has forbidden you to eat the meat of animals found dead, and blood, and the meat of pigs, and that which is killed as a sacrifice in the name of anyone other than God. But if one is forced by necessity and not from a desire to be disobedient or from a desire to exceed the limit of the law then there is no sin on you (to eat those foods). Truly God is most forgiving and Most Merciful.

 

Quran 2:174 Verse 2:174 Those (Jews of Yathrib Arabia) who hide (during their arguments, discussions or teachings, something of) the Scripture that God revealed have exchanged it (the truth of God’s revelations) for a small price (of worldly gain such as profit, pride or fame because of arrogance, jealousy or dishonesty) and they fill their stomach with nothing but fire (evil). God shall not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection (because of God’s anger for what they said about God and His messengers), nor clean them (of their sins), and theirs shall be a painful punishment (in the hereafter).
Comment 1. See Quran 2:55 comments.

 

Quran 2:175 Verse 2:175 They are the ones who buy error instead of (buying) guidance (from God), and (who buy) punishment instead of (buying) forgiveness (from God). What made them steadfast for the fire (in the hereafter)? 

 

Quran 2:176 Verse 2:176 It is because God has revealed the Book (the Koran) with the truth and those who go against the Book (the Quran) are in opposition (to God).

Comment 1. There is no stoning to death for adultery in the Book of God (the Quran).

See Quran 2:37, 2:58, 2:106, 2:160 and 2:177

Comment 2. Stoning to death for adultery is in opposition to the Book of God (the Quran).

Are you afraid of God or are you afraid of stories (hadith) from humans?

Comment 3. God guaranteed that no one can change the Quran.

God did not guarantee that stories (hadith) from humans cannot be from Satan Shaitan.

Quran 30:30 Verse 30:30 So direct yourself (Prophet Muhammad) towards the religion (the belief in one creator) for which He (God who is the one and only creator) has created (religion for) humans. No one can alter what God has created (in religion, in the Torah Taurat, the Gospel Injil and the Koran Quran). That is the right religion (belief), but most people do not know (this).

 

Quran 2:177 Verse 2:177 It is not (a sign of) righteousness if you turn your faces towards the East or the West (in prayer), but righteousness is this, that one should believe in God and the Last Day and the Angels and the Book (the Quran) and (all) the Prophets and give away (your) wealth out of love for Him (God) to your near relations and the orphans and the needy and the traveller and those who ask for help and for the freedom of captives and keep up prayer and pay the tax to help the poor (Zakah) and fulfill agreements that have been promised, and those who are patient in times of distress, sickness and in time of conflicts, these are the people who fear and obey (God).

(Comment 1. Righteous is the person who believes the Book (the Koran Quran).

The Quran does not order humans to stone to death for adultery.

See Quran 2:37, 2:58, 2:106, 2:160 and 2:176.

 

Quran 2:178 Verse 2:178 All you who believe, the Law of equal punishment (legal retribution, legal justice) is prescribed for you for those murdered, the free for the free (Meaning, the murder of a free man shall result in the equal punishment of killing a free man and not a slave), the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. But if the killer is forgiven (pardoned) by his “injured brother” (“injured brother” means - the inheritors of the killed man that has the right to punish or pardon) then grant any reasonable demand and compensate him well (with blood money or other) and with good conduct (honourably, with gratitude, with fairness, without delay and without fraud), this is a concession and a mercy from your Lord (God). After this whoever exceeds the limits (for example, if there is another killing after the pardon or compensation agreement is completed) then there shall be a painful punishment (in this world and in the hereafter).

Comment 1. Quran 2:178 is modified under the authority of Quran 2:106, by Quran 17:33 which require that all people not exceed the limits in the matter of taking life. The limit requires that in the case of killing, only the killer may be killed (if he or she has not been pardoned).

Comment 2. Around the year 2000 Sheik Bulbul in Galkayo, Somalia said on a Radio Galkayo religious lesson “If anyone where to kill me I forgive them in advance (I pardon them in advance).” He used Quran 2:178 to save the life of any future killer as a righteous deed for God to show he cared more for God than he cared of revenge for himself or of revenge against any person. Such a forgiveness and pardon to a killer is from humans in this life only because it shall be God that decides on any punishment for a killer in the hereafter. In 2004 in Galkayo, Somalia, Sheik Bulbul was accidentally shot and killed while trying to stop a fight between two men, both men were pardoned as Sheik Bulbul had requested 4 years earlier).

(Comment 3. Your forgiveness and your pardon can be a test that you love God more than anything else.

See in Quran 2:165 “… Those who believe love God more than anything else. ...”).

(Comment 4. Your forgiveness and your pardon can be a test that you love God more than your relations who were killed by someone.

See in Quran 2:200 “... remember God (in praise) much more than you remember your ancestors. ...”).

 

Quran 2:179 Verse 2:179 – The Law of Equality (legal retribution, legal justice) is to save life, so that you may understand (the consequences in this world of your action) and may restrain yourselves (from killing).

Comment 1. In Quran 2:178 and Quran 2:179 God warns his creations to protect their life and avoid killing. God created life and all life belongs to God. God has ordered that life be protected.

Comment 2. In Quran 2:179 God explains to “people of understanding” that if the killer knows they shall be killed then they shall stop themselves (from killing) and both save their own life and the life of the person that they wanted to kill and so they shall be rightly guided by God not to kill.

Comment 3. In Quran 2:179 those that kill carry the burden of their evil sins. They are against God and are not “people of understanding” and they (the killers) have lost the guidance of God.

Comment 4. Why is the saving of human life important?

God revealed in Quran 2:179 that the purpose of revealing Quran 2:178 is to save human life.

See Quran 2:30 comments.

  

Quran 2:180 Verse 2:180 It is prescribed for you (who have faith in God) that when death approaches any of you that you leave your wealth in a bequest (gift in a Will) to your parents and next of kin (your relatives) according to reasonable manners. This is a duty on the righteous.

 

Quran 2:181 Verse 2:181 Then whoever (dishonestly) changes the bequest (gift in a Will) after hearing it, the sin shall be on those who make the change. Truly, God hears all and knows all.

 

Quran 2:182 Verse 2:182 But if a person fears from the bequeather (the person that made the Will) some error (such as error in law that needs correcting) or sin (such as specifying a rich person who is not in need) and corrects that which is between (the testator who has written the Will and the trustee who holds the property in the Will) then there is no sin on him. God is most forgiving and merciful.

 

Quran 2:183 Verse 2:183 All you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you so that you may become righteous (faithful to the will of God).

 

Quran 2:184 Verse 2:184 (Fast) for a fixed number of days, but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number (of fast days should be made up) from other days. And as for those who can fast with difficulty (example, old people, etc.) they have (a choice either to fast or) to feed a poor person (for each day). But it is better for you (in reward in the hereafter) to do good (example, feeding the poor, etc) voluntarily (for free by your own initiative). It is better for you to fast, if only you knew (the value of the reward for fasting).

 

Quran 2:185 Verse 2:185 In the month of Ramadan the Quran was revealed as guidance for humans with clear reasons for the guidance and with judgment (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent of the Moon on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan) should spend that month in fasting, but if anyone is ill or on a journey, the prescribed period of days (should be made up) later. God intends that things be easy for you, He (God) does not want to make things difficult for you and (God wants you) to complete the prescribed period (of the fast) and to glorify Him (God) in (the way) that He (God) has guided you (until the end of fasting when the crescent of the Moon returns) and that you give thanks to Him (God).

Quran 2:186 Verse 2:186 And when My (God’s) servants (the humans) ask you (Prophet Muhammad) concerning Me (God), then (say) surely I (God) am near and I (God) answer the requests of prayer when they (who have faith) call on Me (God), so they should respond to My (God’s) call (with obedience) and believe in Me (God) so that they may be (correctly) guided.

 

Quran 2:187 Verse 2:187 It is made lawful for you to have sexual relations with your wives on the night of the fasts (after the fast is broken at night). They are your garments and you are their garments (meaning enjoy the pleasure of living together, sexual intercourse). God knows what you used to secretly do among yourselves but He (God) turned to you and forgave you (by changed the rules of the fast) so (that you can) now have sexual relations with them and do what God has ordained (made legal) for you (such as making children) and eat and drink until the white thread of dawn (just before sunrise) appear to you distinct from its black thread (night) and then (start the) fast till the night appears but do not have sexual relations with your wives while you are in the mosques (confining oneself away from worldly affairs and in prayer). Those are (the legal) limits (set by) God, obey the rules for fasting. God makes clear his revelations to humans so that they may become righteous (faithful to the will of God).

 

Quran 2:188 Verse 2:188 Do not consume (use) each other’s wealth unjustly (by theft or in extortion by unlawfully obtaining money, property or services) nor send it (as corruption in bribery) to rulers (judges) to help you to sinfully consume (use) another person’s wealth, when you know (it is illegal).

 

Quran 2:189 Verse 2:189 They ask you (Prophet Muhammad) about (what are) the new Moons. Say, these are signs to mark fixed periods of time for (the affairs of) humans and for the pilgrimage. It is not righteous for you to enter the houses from the back (door) but righteous (is the person) who fears God. So enter houses through their proper doors and fear God so that you may be successful (in the hereafter with the correct faith in God).

 

Quran 2:190 Verse 2:190 And fight in the cause of God (the cause of righteousness and not for your own selfish causes) against those who fight you, but do not go over the legal limits (that God has imposed on you). Truly, God does not like people who make actions that He (God) has made illegal (it is illegal to kill people who are not fighting such as women and children). 

Comment 1. Quran 2:190 is supplemented by Quran 9.36 under the authority of Quran 2:106).

Quran 9.36 Verse 9.36 ……….and fight the Pagans (stone idol worshippers from Makkah) all together as they fight you (those of faith in Yathrib) all together. But know that God is with those who restrain themselves (from going over the legal limits allowed by God during war, for example it is illegal to kill people who are not fighting such as women and children).

Comment 2. Forgive the disbelievers.

Quran 45:14 Verse 45:14 Say (Prophet Muhammad) to those who believe (in God that) they (should) forgive those who do not expect the Days of God (in the hereafter, meaning forgive the disbelievers, forgive the non believers, forgive the stone idol worshippers in Mecca, forgive the people who do not believe in God) so that He (God) may reward (the righteous) people for what they earn (in reward for the hereafter by obeying God’s command that the people who believe in God should forgive the people who do not believe in God so that you forgive the disbelievers in your life in the same way that you wish God to forgive you in the next life in the hereafter).

(Note 1, Forgive disbelieves in this world just as you would like God to forgive you in the next world (the hereafter).

(Note 2. Verses that God revealed in the Quran during a time of war with stone idol worshippers in Mecca, Arabia today Makkah Saudi Arabia do not cancel the revelations God revealed earlier in the Quran just as the verses that God revealed in the Torah Taurat during a time of war with stone idol worshippers in Canaan today Israel and Palestine do not cancel the revelations God revealed earlier in the Torah Taurat.

All of God’s verses carry a message of wisdom for humankind.

Some verses give guidance in times of war and other verses give guidance in times of peace.

The correct interpretation of each verse in the Books of God gives knowledge and wisdom and guidance to whoever God wills.

See Quran 2:30 and 2:179 comments.

 

Quran 2:191 Verse 2:191 And (you can) kill them (those who fight you in battle) wherever you find them (fighting you) and drive them out from where they drove you out (to reclaim your territory) because to be persecuted (by the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) is worse than being killed (because God loves those who defend themselves against the persecution of their religion) but do not fight them at the Holy Mosque inside Makkah unless they fight you there first. If they (the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) attack you (there first) then you can kill them (there in battle).This is the result for those without faith in God (if they fight against Muslims without a just cause).

Comment 1. When does God not support Muslims?

Quran 2:190 Verse 2:190 And fight in the cause of God (the cause of righteousness and not for your own selfish causes) ..."

Quran 2:190 Verse 2:190 "... do not go over the legal limits (that God has imposed on you). ..."

Quran 2:190 Verse 2:190 "... God does not like people who make actions that He (God) has made illegal (it is illegal to kill people who are not fighting such as women and children). 

Quran 9.36 Verse 9.36 "... know that God is with those who restrain themselves (from going over the legal limits allowed by God during war, for example it is illegal to kill people who are not fighting such as women and children).

See Quran 2:30 and 2:179 comments.

 

Quran 2:192 Verse 2:192 But if they (the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) cease (stop fighting), (then you stop fighting) God is most forgiving and Most Merciful.

Comment 1. When defending the persecution of religion stop fighting when your opponent stops fighting.

Comment 2. In war be forgiving and merciful that is the example of God. 

See Quran 2:30 and 2:179 comments.

 

Quran 2:193 Verse 2:193 And fight them (the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) until there is no more persecution and the religion is for God. But if they (the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) cease (stop fighting) then you stop fighting except against (continuing) wrongdoers.

Comment 1. 1400 years ago God established the religion of Islam and removed the persecution against Muslims by the stone idol worshippers in Makkah.

Comment 2. When fighting against the persecution of religion stop fighting when your opponent stops fighting.

1400 years ago the stone idol worshippers in Makkah surrendered without a fight to the Muslims of Yathrib.

The Muslims of Yathrib forgave the stone idol worshippers in Makkah except a few who did not want forgiveness and did not ask for forgiveness.

See Quran 2:30 and 2:179 comments.

 

Quran 2:194 Verse 2:194 The sacred month is for the sacred month (do only sacred things in the sacred month of Ramadan), and for the prohibited things there is the Law of Equality (the law of legal retaliation whose purpose is to save life by acting as a deterrent against evil actions). If someone breaks the prohibition (for example to fight against you during the Holy month of Ramadan) then you may also break the prohibition (for example to fight against them during the Holy month of Ramadan). And fear God and know that God is with the pious (the righteous).

Note 1. Quran 2:179 Verse 2:179 – The Law of Equality (legal retribution, legal justice) is to save life, so that you may understand (the consequences in this world of your action) and may restrain yourselves (from killing).

See Quran 2:30 and 2:179 comments.

 

Quran 2:195 Verse 2:195 And spend (time, property and wealth) in the way of God (meaning for all that is good), and do not make your own hands contribute to your) destruction (by doing what is bad) but only do good because God loves those who do good.

Comment 1. God loves those who do good.

 

Quran 2:196 Verse 2:196 Perform the pilgrimage (Hajj) and the holy visit (Umra to Mecca, Umrah to Makkah) in service to God. But if you are prevented send what offering for sacrifice that you can find (like a camel, cow or sheep to Makkah) and do not shave your heads until the offering reaches the place of sacrifice. And if any of you is ill or has an ailment in his scalp (preventing shaving), then compensate by fasting (for 3 days), or feed the poor (6 poor people) or offer sacrifice (of one sheep). When you have security (and peace with the stone idol worshippers in Makkah) then those who wish to perform the holy visit (Umra to Mecca, Umrah to Makkah) along with the pilgrimage (Hajj), should make a sacrifice that they can afford. But if you have nothing (to sacrifice) then fast for three days during the Hajj and seven days on your return, making ten days in all. This is for those whose home is not near the sacred mosque. And fear God and know that God Is strict in punishment.

 

Quran 2:197 Verse 2:197 The pilgrimage (Hajj) is (performed in) the well known (lunar year) months (i.e. the 10th month, the 11th month and the first ten days of the 12th month of the Islamic calendar, i.e. two months and ten days). Whosoever intends to perform the pilgrimage in those months should not have sexual relations (with his wife), not commit sin and not dispute unjustly during the pilgrimage (Hajj). And the good you do shall be known by God. And take provisions (with you) for the journey but the best provision is righteousness. People of understanding, obey Me (God).

 

Quran 2:198 Verse 2:198 There is no sin on you if you seek the favour of your Lord (God during pilgrimage by trading). Then when you leave (Mount) Arafat, remember God (by thanking God in prayers) at the sacred monument Mashar-al-Haram. Remember Him (God) because He (God) guided you (to the right path) whereas before you were one of those (stone idol worshippers) who were astray (on the wrong path).

 

Quran 2:199 Verse 2:199 Then continue moving with the crowd and ask God for His (God’s) forgiveness. Truly, God is most forgiving and Most Merciful.

 

Quran 2:200 Verse 2:200 When you have finished your rituals and ceremonies then remember God (in praise) much more than you remember your ancestors. Among humans there are some who say, "Our Lord (God), give us in this world" and for them there is no blessing in the hereafter.

 

Quran 2:201 Verse 2:201 And there are some among them who say, “Our Lord, grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter and save us from the punishment of the fire.”

 

Quran 2:202 Verse 2:202 For them they shall be rewarded for what they have did (when they remembered God's promise of the hereafter). And God is swift to account (for what you do).

 

Quran 2:203 Verse 2:203 And remember God during the appointed days (of the pilgrimage) but if anyone leaves in two days there is no sin on them and whoever stays on there is no sin on them if they do good and obey God. Remember that you shall be gathered to Him (God in the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:204 Verse 2:204 And of the people there is a person (Akhnas bin Shariq of Mecca, Arabia, a hypocrite who says one thing but does the opposite of what they say) whose speech in this worldly life may please you (Prophet Muhammad) and he calls God to witness what is in his heart, yet he is the most quarrelsome of the opponents (with no faith in God).

 

(Comment 1. Quran 2:204 refers to a hypocrite who said he believed Prophet Muhammad but he really did not believe. He was Akhnas bin Shariq one of the leaders and hypocrites of the stone idol worshippers in Mecca, Arabia).

 

Quran 2:205 Verse 2:205 And when he (Akhnas bin Shariq of Mecca, Arabia, a hypocrite who says one thing but does the opposite of what they say) goes away (from you Prophet Muhammad), his effort in the land is to misbehave and to destroy the crops and the cattle. God does not like mischief-makers.

 

Quran 2:206 Verse 2:206 When it is said to him (Akhnas bin Shariq of Mecca, Arabia, the hypocrite), "Fear God", he is led by pride to (make more) sins. Hell is an evil resting-place that shall be sufficient for him (in the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:207 Verse 2:207 And there is the type of man (Suhayb ibn Sinan) who would sell himself (by giving his life) to earn the pleasure of God, and God is full of kindness to (His (God’s)) servants.

 

(Comment 1. Suhayb ibn Sinan (Suhayb bin Sinan, Suhayb ibn Sinan al-Rumi, Suhayb bin Sinan al-Rumi) 35 BH – 35 AH (587 – 658 CE, 587 – 658 AD) immigrated to the safety of Yathrib, later known as Medina in Arabia today Saudi Arabia to escape the idol worshippers in Mecca, Arabia who were persecuting those who believed in the one God).

 

Quran 2:208 Verse 2:208 All you who believe, come, all of you, into submission (to God) and do not follow the footsteps of the devil (Satan). He (Satan) is your openly declared enemy.

 

(Comment 1. In Quran 2:208 The Devil wants you to make forbidden the things that God has not forbidden. See Quran 2:169 comments).

 

(Comment 2. The Jews in Yathrib, Medina, Arabia who accepted Prophet Muhammad as the messenger of God found it hard to stop following the Jewish eating restrictions. When Rabbi Al-Husayn bin Salam (Abdullah bin Salam) in Yathrib, Medina, Arabia said, “I recognise Muhammad is a Prophet of God as clearly as I would recognise my own son” (in Quran 2:146) and became the first Jewish Rabbi to become a Muslim he did not eat camel meat, however since God removed many of the food restrictions He (God) had placed earlier on the Jews, Quran 2:208 was revealed with the meaning, do not follow the Devils desire to lead you away from God (by making forbidden to you the things that God has not forbidden to the Muslim, such as the eating of camel meat).

 

Quran 2:209 Verse 2:209 If you backslide (go back to reject faith in God) after the clear (signs of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad) have come to you then know that God is all-mighty and all-wise (meaning remember that God shall be your judge in the hereafter).  

 

Quran 2:210 Verse 2:210 Do they (who do not enter Islam, meaning, “do those who do not submit to the will of God”) then wait for anything other than that God should come to them in the shadows of the clouds with the angels? Then the case (of who has faith in God) would have already been decided (because it would be the Day of Judgement). And to God return all matters (for judgment on your faith in Him (God)).

 

(Comment 1. God will come in the shadows of the clouds with the angels on the Day of Judgement.

This is the time when Prophet Jesus and all other humans shall be resurrected.

The second coming of Jesus and the second coming of every other created human will occur at the same time.

See the Gospel and the Quran where the return of Prophet Jesus is on the Day of Resurrection and Judgement.

See 1. The Torah, Gospel and Quran united - Part 1. The Torah, Gospel and Quran are from one God.

Quran 2:211 Verse 2:211 Ask the Children of Israel how many clear signs and revelations We (God) gave them. Whoever changes God’s blessing after it had come to him, (meaning whoever rejects the religion of the one and only God and accepts disbelief), then surely, God shall be severe in punishment (in the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:212 Verse 2:212 The life of this world is made (to appear) beautiful (and happy) for those (idol worshippers of Mecca) with no faith in God and they mock at those who have faith in God (they mock the people such as Bilal bin Ribah, Ammar bin Yasir and Suhayb al-Rumi who are among the poor people of Mecca). But those who obey God’s orders and keep away from what He (God) has forbidden shall be above them (the idol worshippers) on the Day of Resurrection. And God gives (everything) to whom He (God) wills without limit.

 

(Comment 1. Among the first Muslims were the poor people in Mecca who were persecuted by the wealthy stone idol worshippers for believing in one God.

Some of the believers in the one God included:

Suhayb bin Sinan (Suhayb ibn Sinan, Suhayb ibn Sinan al-Rumi, Suhayb bin Sinan al-Rumi 35 BH – 35 AH (587 – 658 CE, 587 – 658 AD).

Bilal bin Ribah (Bilal ibn Ribah, Bilal al-Habashi, Bilal the Ethiopian 42 BH – 19 AH (580 – 640 CE, 580 – 640 AD).

Ammar bin Yasir (Ammar ibn Yasir 53 BH – 36 AH, (570 – 657 CE, 570 – 657 AD).

 

Quran 2:213 Verse 2:213 Humans were one community (before they separated), then God sent the prophets with the good news (of the resurrection of life in Paradise for the righteous) and warnings (of the resurrection of life in Hell fire for the evil doers) and sent down with them the Scripture (the Torah and later the Gospel) with the truth to judge between people in the matters where they differed. But the people (the Jews and the Christians) who were given it (the revelations from God) were the ones who disagreed about it (its meanings) after the clear revelations came to them because of the selfish envy between them (envy that led each of them to think they were the more righteous). God by His (God’s) grace guided those with faith in God to the truth concerning matters over which they differed. God guides whom He (God) wills to the straight path (the right path, the correct path).

 

(Comment 1. Quran 98:5 Verse 98:5 And they (the Jews and the Christians) were not commanded anything (from God) except that they (the Jews and the Christians) should worship God and be faithful in religion to Him (God) and establish pray (only to the one God who created them) and give charity (to the needy people). That is the correct religion of God.

 

(Comment 2. Some Jews called Jesus a false prophet because man killed him and God did not protect him.

 

(Comment 3. Some Christians said Jesus was God or a partner with God in a Trinity of three inside one godhead.

 

(Comment 4. Muslims believe that Prophet Jesus was a messenger from God and that Prophet Jesus was not killed on the cross because God protected him.

See Quran 4:157 and Quran 4:158 in Did Jesus die on the cross or not?

(Comment 5. Judaism, Christianity, Islam and why God gave the Quran to the Jews and Christians when God had already sent Moses with the Torah and Jesus with the Gospel?

Quran 2:214 Verse 2:214 Or do you think that you shall enter Paradise without such (trials and tests from God) as came to those who passed away before you? They (those who passed away before you) encountered suffering and adversity, and were so shaken in spirit that even the Messenger (the Messenger of God, prophet of God) and those of faith who were with him cried, "When shall the help of God come?" Truly, help from God is always near. 


Quran 2:215 Verse 2:215 They (the people with faith in God) ask you (Prophet Muhammad) what they should give (in charity?) Say, whatever you spend of good must be for parents, relations, orphans, the poor, the travelers and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, God is aware of it.

 

Quran 2:216 Verse 2:216 Fighting (in “the cause of God”, and not for your own selfish individual causes like power, wealth, land, pride, envy and other reasons that are not about “the cause of God” but are really about “your own human causes”) is prescribed for you although you hate it (because of the hardship). It is possible that you hate a thing (fighting) which is good for you (good meaning that fighting is good for you and brings you victory when it is “in the cause of God following Prophet Muhammad” against those who forbid you to worship the one God, as do the stone idol worshippers in Mecca, Arabia) and that you love a thing which is bad for you (bad meaning not to fight is bad for you and brings you persecution for following your religion, from the stone idol worshippers such as those in Mecca, Arabia from whom many Muslims escaped to find safety in Yathrib, Medina). God knows things that you do not know (regarding what would happen to you, if you did not fight the idol worshippers in Mecca, Arabia).

 

(Comments on: The difference between fighting that is guided in the way of God and human misguided fighting.

Fighting in the way of God and fighting in the way of the misguided selfish causes of humans.

Fighting in the path of God and fighting in the path of the misguided selfish causes of humans.

Fighting for God and fighting for the misguided selfish causes of humans.

Fighting in the path of God and human misguided fighting.

Fighting for God and misguided fighting for the selfish causes of humans.

Fighting that is correct and fighting that is evil.

Fighting that God orders and fighting that you have misguidedly ordered.

Fighting that God commands and fighting that you have misguidedly commanded.

Fighting for God and fighting misguidedly for Satan.

Fighting in the path of the Prophet and fighting in your own misguided path.

See the comments below:

 

(Comment 1. Fighting in “the cause of God” is not for your own selfish individual causes like power, wealth, land, pride, envy and other reasons that are really about “your own human causes” and not about God only).

(Comment 2. Prophet Muhammad was rightly guided by God because he was a prophet who received instructions directly from God).

(Comment 3.At this time in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) no one today has shown the same wisdom and authority as Prophet Muhammad who understood the difference between “the cause of God” and “selfish individual human causes).”

(Comment 4. At this time in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) no one’s mouth today has spoken words that every Muslim would recognise as “fighting for the cause of God”, instead it is clear that fighting today is only “for the cause of humans”).

(Comment 5. At this time in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) no one’s hands today have produced actions that every Muslim would recognise as “fighting for the cause of God”, instead it is clear that fighting today is only “for the cause of humans”).

(Comment 6. Those of today 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) who use the words “fighting for the cause of God” might (only God knows) be asked:

Why did you kill Muslims?

Why did you kill women and children?

Why did you kill people that were not fighting you?

And for these questions they shall have no answer, except that they were wrongly guided.

So they shall really be blaming God, because God guides everyone.

But God knows why some are made to be wrongly guided (but the wrongly guided do not know and they say that what they do is for God but their interest is really for themselves and they have no real understanding of God or of God’s creation or of God’s best creations which includes the humans).

(Comment 7. And those of today 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) that use the words “fighting for the cause of God” might (only God knows) be asked in the hereafter:

Why after Prophet Muhammad succeeded to remove the persecution on your religion did you not continue the work of Prophet Muhammad in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) in “the cause of God” by using your mouth and your feet to fight Satan (the Devil) by telling all the men, women and children in the world about God?).

(Comment 8. At this time in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) instead of fighting in the “selfish causes of humans” why did you not travel around the world and talk with all humans about the message of the last prophet of God?”).

(Comment 9. The enemy of humans is Satan (the Devil, your only true enemy), so why do you join with Satan to fight against humans?).

(Comment 10. Satan whispers reasons for Muslim to fight Muslim and when Muslims fights Muslims saying that they fight Muslims for “the cause of God” all Muslims know that such action is pure evil and that such fighting is only “for the selfish cause of humans”).

(Comment 11. Satan whispers proclaim “the cause of humans” to be the same as “the cause of God” but it is a sin because “the cause of God” is the cause that is only for God and is nothing to do with “the selfish causes of humans”).  

(Comment 12. Thanks to God, today in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) we are a people that inherit an Earth free from religious persecution.

But to spoil God’s creation (and as a test of our faith in God ), Satan whispers reasons for Muslim to fight Muslim and when Muslims fight Muslims and call it “the cause of God” we know it is pure evil they do because such fighting is only for “the selfish cause of humans”).

(Comment 13. Satan works hard to make all the people in the world to be afraid of Muslims because Satan does not want the message from God’s last Prophet to reach all the peoples of the world before the Day of Judgement).

(Comment 14. God sent all the prophets and the last Prophet Muhammad to remove religious persecution so that today in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) people are free to spread the message of God everywhere on the Earth without suffering from religious persecution).

(Comment 15. Today in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) Muslims can do what Prophet Muhammad loved best, which is to praise God, to be the Most Merciful person and the kindest person in their daily deeds and in happiness and in peace passing the message of God to the people of the world).

(Comment 16. Today in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) Satan uses fear to make people afraid of Muslims and run away quickly from them so that they do not hear the message of the last prophet of God).

(Comment 17. To defeat Satan, follow Prophet Muhammad in the cause of God by using your mouth and your feet to tell all the men, women and children in the world about God).

(Comment 18. Stay away from the misguided fighting, that fighting is only a trick from Satan who wants to keep you busy frightening and killing yourselves instead of you using your time in the real “cause of God” which is to pass the message of God’s last prophet to all the people of the world).

(Comment 19. Today in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) God knows what is the cause of God, so to avoid sin:

Do not say I am fighting in the cause of God when you fight Muslims,

Do not say I am fighting in the cause of God when you kill women and children,

Do not say I am fighting in the cause of God when you kill people that are not fighting you.

If you must fight avoid sin and do not say I am fighting in the cause of God when God knows His (God’s) cause but you do not know the plans of God.

Only a prophet knows God’s command and God has revealed that Prophet Muhammad was the last of God’s prophets).

(Comment 20. Today in 1432 AH (2011 CE 2011 AD) if you fight to kill then recognise you do not know the will of God and do not say, “I am fighting in the cause of God”. Are you a prophet? Only God knows the truth about what you are doing. Do not lead other people into sin by using “the cause of God” to kill people for “the selfish cause of humans”).

(Comment 21. If you see fighting, be ready to answer to God for what you do.

Do not get additional sin by using God’s name in fights that have nothing to do with fighting only for the cause of God.

Fighting for the cause of God was commanded and directed by God through his prophets to remove the persecution of religion on the Earth.

Fighting for the cause of God was first revealed because of the persecution against Muslims by the stone idol worshippers who did not allow Muslims to freely pray in Mecca, Arabia).

(Comment 22. Of all the creations in the heavens and the earth the most loved of God’s creations includes the humans that Satan has promised to spoil in every generation.

Today we hear or see actions that destroy some of God’s best loved creations, the humans.

Among people are those who believe Satan when he whispers into the heart of men and women encouraging them to destroy what God has created (with the permission of God as a test to show which people are the true believers who reject Satan’s evil suggestions.

Satan (with the permission of God to test your faith in God) says destroy the poor men, the poor women and the poor children that are in crowds or are travelling together and are not fighting you, although God has absolutely forbidden you to do it.

Satan knows that among the poor crowds or poor travelers who do not fight you it is absolutely certain there are people you shall kill who love God.

Such killing is forbidden but Satan misleads some people by whispering into their heart reasons for dissatisfaction in their life that God gave to them and whispering into their heart Satan’s false interpretations of the Quran to confuse them).

(Comment 23. The wise know that Prophet Muhammad lived at a time when teaching Islam (the worship of one God) was forbidden in Mecca, Arabia and that the Quran shows how Prophet Muhammad changed the world so that today the teaching of Islam (the worship of one God) is not forbidden anywhere.

Muslims today can travel to every country in the world and bring the good news of God to whomever God wills.

Praising God and telling the world about God was the most loved thing that Prophet Muhammad wanted to do in his worship of God and this was the purpose of his life in the cause of God.

The prophet was only ordered by God to fight to stop the persecution of Muslims by the stone idol worshippers when they prayed to God in Mecca, Arabia today Saudi Arabia).

(Comment 24. Today it is possible for a Muslim to visit people anywhere around the world and invite them to God, God willing.

Everyone today can hear news reports on radio and see on TV and on the internet how Satan works very hard every day to make people all over the world afraid of Muslims.

Satan wants people to stay away from Muslims by using fear so that they do not learn about God.

God revealed to Prophet Muhammad over 1400 years ago corrections from God that are to be passed to the Jews, the Christians and to all humans in every generation.

Among the best acts in life if God wills is to be able to explain God to someone that does not correctly know God.

This is the direction for the righteous in today’s world were the teaching of the one God is no longer forbidden anywhere).

(Comment 25. When Satan whispers to spoil God’s creations reply first with:

Quran 4:93 Verse 4:93 Whoever intentionally kills a person who has faith in God his (the home for the killer) is Hell (forever in the hereafter) and the wrath (the anger) and the curse of God (the misfortunes from God) are on him. For him (the killer) a great punishment is prepared (in Hell Fire in the hereafter).

(Comment 26. When Satan whispers to spoil God’s creations reply secondly with:

Quran 4:114 Verse 4:114 There is no good in most of their (the people’s) secret talks except in him (the person) who calls for charity, kindness and peace making between humans, he (the person) who does this (charity, kindness and peace making between humans) and seeks the approval of God, We (God) shall give them a great reward (in Paradise in the Hereafter).

(Comment 27. When Satan whispers to spoil God’s creations reply thirdly with:

Quran 4:125 Verse 4:125 And who has the best religion than the one who submits himself to God while doing good (to other humans whom God created) and following the religion of Prophet Abraham, (whom God made to be) righteous? And God took Prophet Abraham as an intimate friend (because he had a pure love for God). 

(Comment 28. Quran 15:39, Verse 15:39 (Iblis (Satan)) said, "O my Lord (God), because you misled me, I shall make the path of wrongdoing seem attractive to them (humans) on the earth, and I ((Satan) shall mislead all of them (humans to do evil in a way where they think that their evil is not evil but is something that is good for humans to do).

Quran 15:40, Verse 15:40 Except Your (God’s) chosen, (correctly guided) servants (who are) among them (humans)."

 

Quran 2:217 Verse 2:217 They (the people with faith in God) ask you (Prophet Muhammad, what to do) concerning fighting in the sacred (Holy) Month. Say, "Fighting in the sacred month is a serious offence but more serious in the sight of God (is when the stone idol worshippers of Mecca) prevent (those with faith in God) access to the path (roads, pathways) to God (God’s sacred sites), to deny God (to forbid praise to God in God’s holy sites), to prevent access to the sacred Mosque (the Kabah in Mecca) and to have God’s faithful members driven out from the holy sites." Persecution (of those with faith in God by the stone idol worshippers in Mecca) is worse than being killed (in the cause of God for the right to pray in God’s holy sites). They (the stone idol worshippers of Mecca) shall not stop fighting you until they turn you away from your faith in God if they can. And if any of you turn away from your faith in God and die without faith, your works shall bear no fruit (meaning, you shall not be successful) in this life and in the Hereafter and you shall live in fire (punishment) in the hereafter. 


Quran 2:218 Verse 2:218 Those who have faith in God and those who suffered exile (when they were made to leave their homes to escape the persecution of the stone idol worshippers in Mecca) and struggled hard in the path of God (meaning, struggled hard in the path of righteousness), they have the hope of the mercy of God and God is most forgiving and Most Merciful. 

 

Quran 2:219 Verse 2:219 They (the people with faith in God) ask you (Prophet Muhammad, what to do) concerning the drinking of alcohol and gambling? Say, "In them (alcohol and gambling) is great sin and some profit for humans but the sin is greater than the profit." (It is better for you not to drink alcohol and not to gamble because alcohol and gambling give more disadvantage than benefit in the hereafter). They (the people with faith in God) ask you (Prophet Muhammad) how much they are to spend (in charity). Say, "What is beyond your needs (meaning spend in charity from the resources that you do not need)." Thus God makes clear to you His (God’s) revelations for you to consider (regarding this worldly life and the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:220 Verse 2:220 Regarding (questions about) this worldly life and the hereafter, they (the people with faith in God) ask you (Prophet Muhammad, what to do) concerning orphans. Say, "The best thing to do is what is for their good (honestly) and manage their affairs with yours (honestly) so that they are like your brother. God knows the person who intends misbehaviour (in the management of the property of an orphan) from the person who intends good (by keeping good management of the property of an orphan). And if God had wished, He (God) could have put you into difficulties (for example you might have been made an orphan), God is indeed all mighty and all wise (in all things)." 

 

Quran 2:221 Verse 2:221 Do not marry disbelieving women until they believe, a slave woman (female slave) who believes is better than a disbelieving woman even though she (the disbeliever) might be attractive to you. Do not marry your girls to disbelievers until they believe, a man slave (male slave) who believes is better than a disbeliever even though he (the disbeliever) might be attractive to you. Disbelievers call you to the Fire (of punishment in the hereafter) but God calls you by His (God’s) Grace to Paradise and forgiveness and makes His (God’s) revelations clear to humans so that they may remember (His (God’s) guidance regarding this worldly life and the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:222 Verse 2:222 They (the people with faith in God) ask you (Prophet Muhammad, what to do) concerning menstruation. Say, it is not a thing for a husband to have sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses (menstruation, when blood is seen from her vagina), therefore keep away from women during menses and do not go to them (meaning do not have intercourse with them) till they have been cleaned (from menses and have taken a bath). And when they have cleaned themselves go to them as God has ordained for you (in any manner in their vagina). Truly, God loves those who turn to Him (God) in repentance and loves those who keep themselves pure and clean (by washing their hands, mouth, nose, face, arms, hair, ears, neck, body, private parts, legs, feet, toes etc).

 

Quran 2:223 Verse 2:223 Your wives are like a field for you (to cultivate children) so approach your field when or how you like (with sexual intercourse to plant your seed) but do some good act for your souls beforehand (do good deeds, praise God and ask God for righteous children) and fear God (remember God). And know that you shall meet Him (in the Hereafter), and (Prophet Muhammad) give (this) good news to those who have faith.

 

Quran 2:224 Verse 2:224 Do not swear against doing a good deed or against acting righteously or against making peace among humans by using the name of God (in such wicked oaths), God is all hearing and all knowing.

 

Quran 2:225 Verse 2:225 God shall not call you to account for what is unintended in your oaths (like saying “(I swear) by (the name of) God” spontaneously and unintentionally from a slip of the tongue) but (God shall call you to account) for the intention in your heart and He (God) is most forgiving and most tolerant (of our mistakes). 

 

(Comment 1. It is a sin to use God’s name in vain. Do not make false oaths using the name of God).


Quran 2:226 Verse 2:226 Those who take an oath not to have sexual relation (because they want to divorce) their wife must wait four months but if they change their mind within four months (and decide not to divorce then they are not divorced) and truly God is most forgiving and Most Merciful.

 

Quran 2:227 Verse 2:227 And if they decide to divorce then God hears and knows all things.

 

Quran 2:228 Verse 2:228 And divorced women shall wait (in regard to marriage) for three menstrual periods (a period for women called Iddah) and it is not lawful for her to conceal what God has created in her womb (if she is pregnant with a child and) if she believes in God and the Last Day. In that case (where pregnancy is found during Iddah) her husband would do well to take her back if they desire reconciliation. And they (women) have rights (over their husbands in regards to living expenses etc.). Husband and wife have similar rights (regarding kindness, respect etc) and all is according to what is reasonable and men have a degree (of responsibility) above them (their wives) and God is all mighty and all wise (in his rulings and all things).

 

Quran 2:229 Verse 2:229 After the word divorce is said twice, you either keep your wife on reasonable terms or release her with kindness. And it is not lawful for you (men) to take back (from your wives) any of your Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) which you have given them, except when both parties fear that they would be unable to keep within the limits given (to them) by God (such as to deal with each other on a fair basis in their marriage). If they fear that they would not be able to keep within the limits given by God (to them to deal with each other on a fair basis in their marriage) then there is no sin on either of them if she freely give back something for her divorce (such as the bridal money or a part of it to free herself from her husband). These are the laws given (to them) by God so do not disobey them. And whoever disobeys the limits given (to them) by God they are the wrong-doers.

 

Quran 2:230 Verse 2:230 So if a husband divorces his wife (after saying the word divorce a third time), he cannot, after that, marry her until after she has married another man and that man has divorced her. In that case there is no sin on either of them if they marry again provided they feel that they can keep the laws given (to them) by God. Those are the limits given (to them) by God which He (God) makes clear to those who understand.

 

Quran 2:231 Verse 2:231 And when you have divorced a women and she has fulfilled the term of her prescribed period (Iddah, the period after which she can marry) then either take her back on reasonable terms or set her free on reasonable terms. But do not take her back to hurt her because whoever does that wrongs their soul (in the hereafter). And do not treat the verses of God as a joke, but remember God’s favour on you (when God gave you faith), and He (God) has revealed the Book (the Quran) and wisdom (through the example of Prophet Muhammad) to teach you. And fear God and know that God knows all things.

 

Quran 2:232 Verse 2:232 And when you have divorced a woman and she has fulfilled the term of her prescribed period (Iddah, the period after which she can marry), do not prevent her from marrying her (former) husband if they mutually agree on reasonable terms. This (instruction) is for all among you who believes in God and the Last Day. That is a more virtuous and pure (thing) for you (to do), surely God knows that which you do not know (regarding your situation in the hereafter and the rewards for following the laws of God).

 

Quran 2:233 Verse 2:233 (Divorced) mothers may suckle (breastfeed) their babies for two whole years if they wish to complete the period of suckling (breastfeeding). The father of the child shall bear the cost of the mother's food and clothing on a reasonable basis. No person shall have a burden laid on him or her greater than he or she can bear. No mother shall be treated unfairly because of her child and no father shall be treated unfairly because of his child. And (if something happens to the father) then the responsibilities of the father are transferred to the (father's) heir. If they (husband and wife) both decide on weaning (slowly stopping suckling) by mutual consent and after due consultation then there is no sin on them. And if they decide on a foster breastfeeding mother for their children than there is no sin on them provided they pay (the foster mother) what they agreed (to give her) on reasonable terms. And fear God and know that God sees all that you do.

 

Quran 2:234 Verse 2:234 And those of you (men) who die and leave wives (widows) behind them, they (the wives) shall wait (in regard to their marriage) for four months and ten days and then when they have finished that time period (Iddah), there is no sin on you if they (the wives) marry. And God is well aware of what you do.

 

Quran 2:235 Verse 2:235 And there is no sin on you if you speak indirectly to a women to hint about marriage (example "If one finds a wife like you he shall be very happy") or if you keep (the proposal) concealed in your mind, God knows that you are thinking about her, but do not make a promise of marriage with her in secret except to speak honourably unless you speak in a lawful manner (proposing marriage). And do not consummate (complete the marriage with sexual intercourse) until the prescribed period for women (Iddah) is completed, and know that God knows what is in your minds and therefore beware of Him and know that God is most forgiving and most tolerant (so be forgiving and tolerant to each other).

 

Quran 2:236 Verse 2:236 There is no sin on you if you divorce a woman before you have touched her (had sexual relations with her) and before you have given her Mahr (the bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage). But give her (a suitable gift), the rich according to what he can afford and the poor according to what he can afford, a gift of reasonable amount is a duty for those who do good.

 

Quran 2:237 Verse 2:237 And if you divorce her before you have touched her (had a sexual relation with her), and you have agreed on the Mahr (bridal money given by the husbands to his wife at the time of marriage), then pay half of that (Mahr) to her, unless she agrees to forego it (meaning - unless she does not want the Mahr), or he (the husband), in whose hands is the marriage tie (meaning - the husband who is the one responsible for making the marriage proposal), agrees to forego (the legal half Mahr payment) and give her the full Mahr (bridal money). And (for you) to forego (the amount required by law and instead give her the full amount of Mahr) is nearer to righteousness. And do not forget kindness between yourselves. Truly, God sees all that you do.

 

Quran 2:238 Verse 2:238 Guard strictly (don’t forget) to do your (five daily) prayers (4.50 am, 12.30 pm, 3.30 pm, 6 pm and 7.30 pm depending on your location) especially the middle prayer (3.30 pm near the time when people are working) and stand up with devotion to God.

 

Quran 2:239 Verse 2:239 But if you are in danger (if you fear an enemy) then (say your prayers) on foot (as you are walking) or on horseback (as you are riding) and when you are in a safe place then remember God (and pray) in the manner He (God) has taught you and which you did not know before (when you worshipped stone idols).

 

Quran 2:240 Verse 2:240 And those of you who die and leave behind wives should bequeath for their wives a year's maintenance and residence without turning them out (of the home) but if they (the wives) leave then there is no sin on you for what they freely do for themselves lawfully. And God is all mighty and all wise.

(Comment 1. Quran 4.240 is replaced by Quran 4:12 under the authority of Quran 2:106.

Quran 4.12 From (the assets) that your wife leaves (when she dies) the husband’s share is a half if they have no child but if they have a child he shall get a fourth of what the wife leaves after the payment of legacies she bequeathed and her debts. From (the assets) that your husband leaves (when he dies) the wife’s share is a fourth if they have no child but if they have a child she shall get an eighth of what the husband leaves after the payment of legacies he bequeathed and his debts. If the man or woman whose inheritance is in question has left neither ascendants nor descendants but has left a brother or a sister each one of the two gets a sixth, but if there are more than two (brothers and sisters) they then share in a third of what is left after the payment of legacies that he (or she) may have bequeathed and debts, in a way that no loss is caused (to anyone). This is a Commandment from God and God is all knowing (of what you do) and most tolerant (in waiting for proof of your sincerely in Him (God)). 

  

Quran 2:241 Verse 2:241 For divorced women living support (should be provided) on a reasonable (scale). This is a duty on the righteous.

 

Quran 2:242 Verse 2:242 Thus God makes clear His (God’s) revelations to you, in order that you may understand.

 

Quran 2:243 Verse 2:243 Have you (Prophet Muhammad) not considered the days of old when thousands (of the people of the children of Israel) who feared death left their homes and God said to them, “Die”, and then He (God) brought them back to life (as Prophet Ezekiel watched). God is the Lord of kindness to humans but most humans are not grateful (to God).

 

(Comment 1. In the Jewish Bible God brought the dead children of Israel back to life.

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:1 The hand of the Lord (God) was on me (Prophet Ezekiel), and the Lord (God) carried me out in a spirit, and set me down in the midst of the valley, and it was full of bones;

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:2 and He (God) caused me (Prophet Ezekiel) to pass by them and I saw there were very many (bones) in the open valley and they were very dry.

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:3 And He (God) said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I (Prophet Ezekiel) answered, “O Lord God, You know.”

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:4 Then He (God) said to me, 'Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, “O you dry bones, hear the word of the Lord (God).

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:5 The Lord God said to these bones, “See how I (God) shall cause breath to enter into you and you shall live.”

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:6 “And I (God) shall lay sinews on you and shall bring up flesh on you and cover you with skin and put breath in you and you shall live and you shall know that I am the Lord (God).”

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:7 So I (Prophet Ezekiel) prophesied as I was commanded and as I prophesied there was a noise and a commotion and the bones came together, bone to its bone.

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:8 And I (Prophet Ezekiel) looked, and there were sinews on them (bones), and flesh came up and skin covered them above but there was no breath in them.

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:9 Then He (God) said to me (Prophet Ezekiel), “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath”, The Lord God said, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain (people) so that they may live.”

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:10 So I (Prophet Ezekiel) prophesied as He (God) commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up on their feet, an exceeding great (number) host (of people).

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:11 Then He (God) said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; look, they say, “Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are clean cut off (from having a future generation that shall come after us).”

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:12 Therefore prophesy, and say to them, The Lord God said, Look, I (God) shall open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, O My (God’s) people; and I (God) shall bring you into the land of Israel.

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:13 And you shall know that I am the Lord (God), when I (God) have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves, O My (God’s) people.

Jewish Bible Ezekiel 37:14 And I (God) shall put My (God’s) spirit in you, and you shall live, and I (God) shall place you in your own land; and you shall know that I the Lord (God) have spoken and performed it, said the Lord (God).”

 

Quran 2:244 Verse 2:244 Then (have faith in God and) fight in the cause of God (righteously, in a good way to promote God, not for personal interests but for God only), and know that God is all hearing and all knowing.

 

Quran 2:245 Verse 2:245 Who shall give to God a good gift (your faith) so that he may multiply it many times? It is God who decreases or increases what you have (to test your faith in Him (God)) and to Him (God) you shall return (in the hereafter).

 

Quran 2:246 Verse 2:246 Have you not considered the leaders of the Children of Israel after Prophet Moses (Musa), when they said to a prophet of theirs (Prophet Samuel), "Appoint for us a king, so we may fight in the cause of God (righteously, in a good way, for God and not for personal interests). Their Prophet (Prophet Samuel) said, "Is it not possible that if you were commanded to fight than you would not fight?" They (the people) said, "How could we refuse to fight in the cause of God, seeing that we have been driven out of our homes and our children (families have been taken as captives)?" But when they were commanded to fight, they turned back, except a few among them. God has full knowledge of those who do wrong.

 

(Comment 1. In the Jewish Bible the children of Israel ask for a King.

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 8:6 But the thing displeased Prophet Samuel, when they (the Children of Israel) said, “Give us a king to judge us.” And Prophet Samuel prayed to the Lord (God).

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 8:7 And the Lord (God) said to Prophet Samuel, Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you because they have not rejected you but they have rejected Me (God) so that I (God) should not be king over them (the Children of Israel).

 

Quran 2:247 Verse 2:247 Their Prophet (Samuel) said to them, "God has appointed Saul as your king." The leaders said, "How can he be our king when we are better able to lead the kingdom and he has not enough wealth." Their Prophet (Samuel) said, "Surely, God has chosen him above you and He (God) has greatly increased him in knowledge and stature. And God grants His (God’s) kingdom to whomever He (God) wills. God cares for all His (God’s) creatures’ needs and He (God) knows everything."

 

(Comment 1. In the Jewish Bible God appointed Saul as the King of the children of Israel.

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 9:15 Now the Lord (God) had revealed to Prophet Samuel a day before Saul came, saying:

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 9:16 “Tomorrow about this time I (God) shall send you a man out of the land of Benjamin, and you shall anoint him to be prince over My (God’s) people (the people of) Israel, and he (Saul) shall save My (God’s) people out of the hand of the Philistines.

  

Quran 2:248 Verse 2:248 And their Prophet (Samuel) said to them, "A sign shall come to you in the Ark of the Covenant (the agreement between God and the children of Israel) with (an assurance) in it for the security of the kingdom (of the children of Israel) from your Lord (God) and the relics left by the family of Prophet Moses and the family of Prophet Aaron, carried by angels. Most surely there is a sign in this for those who have faith.

 

(Comment 1. In the Jewish Bible Saul and the Ark containing God’s covenant (agreement) are brought together.

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 14:18 And Saul said to Ahijah, “Bring here the ark of God.” For the ark of God was there at that time with the children of Israel.

 

Quran 2:249 Verse 2:249 When King Saul departed with the armies, he said, "God shall test you at a river so that whoever drinks it he is not with me and whoever does not drink it is with me except he who takes it (drinks) from the hollow of his hand." Yet, they drank it (by putting their mouth in the river instead of drinking the water out of their hands), all, except a few of them. When he and the faithful (the few who drank the water from their hand) crossed the river, some said, "(On) this day we cannot cope with Goliath and his (large) army" but those who knew with certainty that they were to meet their Lord ((God) in the hereafter), said, "How often by God’s will has a small force defeated a big one? God is with those who are steadfast (firm).” 

 

(Comment 1. In the Jewish Bible Goliath challenges King Saul and the children of Israel.

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 17:8 And he (Goliath of Gath in Philistine) stood and cried to the armies of Israel and said to them, “'Why do you come out arrayed for battle? Am I not a Philistine and you servants to King Saul? Choose a man from you and let him come down to me.”

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 17:9 “If he is able to fight with me and kill me then we shall be your servants; but if I prevail against him and kill him, then you shall be our servants and serve us.”

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 17:10 And the Philistine said, “'I taunt the armies of Israel this day to give me a man so that we may fight together.”

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 17:11 And when King Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.

 

Quran 2:250 Verse 2:250 When they advanced to meet (their enemy) Goliath and his forces, they prayed, "Our Lord, make us patient (to endure hardship) and make our steps steadfast (firm) and give us help against the people that have no faith."

 

Quran 2:251 Verse 2:251 And they (the Children of Israel) defeated (Goliath) by God’s will when David killed Goliath and God gave (David) the kingdom (after the death of King Saul) and wisdom and taught him (King David) whatever He (God) willed. And if God did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would be full of misbehavour. But God is full of kindness (meaning - all creation enjoy a share in this world for a time whether they have faith in God or not).

 

(Comment 1. In the Jewish Bible David defeated Goliath.

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 17:50 So David succeeded over the Philistine (Goliath) with a sling and with a stone, and hit the Philistine, and slew him (to the ground); but there was no sword in the hand of David.

Jewish Bible 1 Samuel 17:51 And David ran and stood over the Philistine and took his sword and drew it out of the sheath and killed him and cut off his head. And when the Philistines saw that their mighty man was dead, they ran away.

 

Quran 2:252 Verse 2:252 These are the revelations of God. We (God through Angel Gabriel Jibril) recite them to you (Prophet Muhammad) with the truth. You surely are one of the Messengers (of God).

 

See 1. God protects His Torah, His Gospel and His Quran.

God protects His word.

No one has the power to change the word of God.

If humans could change the word of God in the Torah or the Gospel or the Quran then no revelation could be trusted.

Quran 2:253 Verse 2:253 The messengers We (God) endowed with gifts, some (with) more (gifts) than others. To some of them God spoke and to others He (God) raised their rank (of honour). To (messenger and prophet) Jesus the son of Mary We (God) gave clear (signs of his truthfulness) and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit (Angel Gabriel). If God had so willed He (God) could have made succeeding generations not fight among each other if after the clear (signs of God’s revelations) the people believed, but they (chose) to dispute, some believing (the Prophets of God) and others rejecting (the Prophets of God). If God had willed then they would not have fought each other but God fulfills His (God’s) plan (does what He desires).

 

(Comment 1. The sacrifice of Prophet Isaac in the Quran.

Quran 37:102 Verse 37:102 And, when he (“he” is the “good news son” Prophet Isaac, that God promised in Quran 37:101) was old enough to work with him (Prophet Abraham), he (Prophet Abraham) said, "O my dear son (Prophet Isaac), I see in a dream that I am slaughtering (sacrificing) you, (my son) what do you think?" He (Prophet Isaac) said, "O my father, do as you are commanded, God willing you shall find me patience (not complaining).”  

 

The different messengers of God had different gifts from God such as the gift of vision to understand dreams.

Quran 2:253 Verse 2:253 The messengers We (God) endowed with gifts, some (with) more (gifts) than others. …”

Quran 38:45 Verse 38:45 And mention Our (God’s) servant Prophet Abraham, Prophet Isaac and Prophet Jacob (who were), men with strength (of faith in God) and vision (to understand the will of God in dreams).

 

Notice that Prophet Ishmael is not mentioned as the father and son with the power of vision in Quran 38:45 instead God mentions Prophet Ishmael separately and without his father three verses later in Quran 38:48.

Quran 38:48 Verse 38:48 And mention Prophet Ishmael and Prophet Elisha and Prophet Ezekiel. All are among the chosen (messengers of God). 

 

Prophet Ishmael is never mentioned in the story of the sacrifice Quran chapter 37 because Prophet Ishmael is not in the story of the sacrifice.

 

In Quran chapter 38 God shows that Prophet Ishmael and Prophet Isaac are two different stories.

The story of Prophet Ishmael is the story of the building of the Kabah.

The story of the good news son is the story of Prophet Isaac and the sacrifice.

 

In Quran chapter 38 God blesses the father and the son with the blessing of vision to understand dreams by blessing Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac together in Quran 38:45 and three verses later Prophet Ishmael is blessed without his father in Quran 38:48.

 

God has made clear for who ever God wills that Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac are the father and son in the story of the sacrifice which confirms that no one can change the word of God in the Torah and in the Quran.

If humans had the power to change the word of God in the Torah and in the Quran then no revelation could be trusted because it would be proof that God did not protect His word which would be proof that God does not exist.

Quran 30:30 Verse 30:30 So direct yourself (Prophet Muhammad) towards the religion (the belief in one creator) for which He (God who is the one and only creator) has created (religion for) humans. No one can alter what God has created (in religion, in the Torah, the Gospel and the Quran). That is the right religion (belief), but most people do not know (this).

 

In Quran chapter 37 the story of the sacrifice the only blessing from God is to Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac. God leaves no blessing to Prophet Ishmael because Prophet Ishmael is not in the story of the sacrifice.

 

God revealed that God gave Prophet Joseph and Prophet Jacob the ability to interpret dreams in the same way as in an earlier time God gave Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac that same ability in the story of the sacrifice.

In Quran 12:4 – 12:7 God gives the story of another son, Prophet Joseph and his father Prophet Jacob who both interpreted a dream where the son Prophet Joseph might be killed and God says that He (God) gave them that power to interpret and understand the meaning of dreams as a favour from God in the same way that God gave that same power to Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac in an earlier time).

 

“….as He (God) perfected it (the ability to understand dreams) upon your fathers before you, Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac. …” (Quran 12:6 Verse 12:6)

 

Quran 12:6 Verse 12:6 “And so your Lord (God) shall choose you (Prophet Joseph) and shall teach you the interpretation of stories (dreams, visions) and shall perfect His (God’s) favour upon you and upon the family of Prophet Jacob as He (God) perfected it (the ability to understand dreams) upon your fathers before you, Prophet Abraham and Prophet Isaac. Your Lord (God) knows all things and is wise.”
