[We are producing answer of this question on analyzing points that Jews were once chosen by God as His People and that is a fact. Now we are going to find why God choose them? Still they are chosen or not? If not then what is their position now? --With step by step logical and scriptural explanation to reach a justified conclusion. We appreciate those are interested to refute our analysis with a better one. And we remind reader that what we produce here is just an answer of a question in a way we think appropriate. So, no one shall taken it as an INSULT or DISRESPECT of a RELIGION in any way, we are surely against it.]
What a Jew thinks shall never be valuable to us, even it may not valuable to any non-Jew as we do not find any logic of that. But it is really valuable if they are considered superior in the eyes of Almighty God. Yah, the fact is once they were Gods Chosen People. It is said-
In the bible- "For you are people consecrated to the Lord your God: of all the peoples on earth the Lord your God chose you to be His treasured people." -[Deuteronomy 7:6]
And in the Qur'an- "O children of Israel, remember my favor which I bestowed upon you, and that I favored you above all creation". -[2:47; 2:122]
Actually God declared Abraham’s superiority. God said to Abraham, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people."
What is the reason that God declared such? It is for the Abraham's credibility, because -
i). Living in the house of a idol worshipers, USING BRAIN, he discover the REAL GOD —ONE and ONLY.
ii). He proved his LOVE to God passing the Test [of God].
So God wanted to honor him, so He made a covenant, saying: "Abraham, circumcise thy foreskin and that of all thy house, for this is a covenant between me and thee for ever.'' -then He cleared Abraham the way He wanted to honour him saying, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people."--(2:124)
But Abraham confused it ends to his death or its a continuous process—-ie. applicable even to his descendants, —-so he asked,— "And of my descendants?"--(2:124) ie. Abraham said, “O God, since you have chosen me and honored me with the robe of Your approval, grant this distinction to my children also.”
God declared: “My covenant shall not reach the evildoers.”
When Abraham realized that God does not extend His loving care to the evildoers and the insolent, he tried to strike a bargain. He said, “O God, those who believe and are not evildoers— give them a portion of Your provision.”
God declared, “My provision is common to all men and women, and veryone shall have a share of it. All creatures enjoy their portion of benefits from this guesthouse. But the robe of My approval, and the honor of ennoblement and distinction, are a special gift for the elect and chosen ones.”
“We appointed the House to be
A place of visitation for the people,
And a sanctuary.
‘Take to yourselves Abraham’s station
For a place of prayer.’”-[2:125]
The literalists say that what is intended by this “House” is the Ka'ba, for in the Ka'ba it is forbidden to hunt, and no malice is allowed against anyone.
However, God told him the fact concerning circumcision, and said: "The soul that shall not have his flesh circumcised, I will scatter him from among my people for ever."
Obviously Abraham not happy hearing such, and almighty God, the All knowing and Wise one want to happy him with a “Glad Tidings” saying: "Behold, in your seed I will bless all the tribes of the earth; and as you have broken in pieces the idols, O Abraham;, even so shall your seed do."" ie. a promise for the Messiah for the mankind.
From the above we see, God not denied Abraham ie SURETY a prophethoodship among his descendants, but WITH A CONDITION OF OBEDIENT-SHIP that shall be fulfilled OBSERVING the COVENANT and His promise shall never be applicable for the transgressor. So He said this way- "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers."
Now a question why God include such covenant?
All we know that Adam, the first man, eat the fruit forbidden by God in paradise, his flesh rebelled against the spirit; whereupon he swore, saying: "By God, I will cut thee!"
And having broken a piece of rock, he seized his flesh to cut it with the sharp edge of the stone: whereupon he was rebuked by the angel Gabriel. And he answered: "I have sworn by God to cut it; I will never be a liar!"
'Then the angel showed him the superfluity of his flesh, and that he cut off. And hence, just as every man taketh flesh from the flesh of Adam, so is he bound to observe all that Adam promised with an oath.
This did Adam observe in his sons, and from generation to generation came down the "Obligation of Circumcision". But in the time of Abraham there were but few circumcised upon the earth, because that idolatry was multiplied up the earth. So God made the covenant for the "Salvation of Mankind" from the "Original Sin".
And for that covenant, every time the Israelis deviated from the path of God, He sent a messenger among them. But the Jews were inattentive, bad intentional and disgraceful. Most of them ever believed on those Prophets. They denied some of them and killed others. So, they never understood Gods will, or His real Attributes. Qur'an says-
And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed. -(2: 87)
But the Israelis were the "Chosen People", and a covenant between God and Abraham already made, so God wished them back to the right path as a try for the last time, through a prophet with some Godly Attributes, so that, they may never slipped from the path of God and no one to blame God for negligence in keeping promise for the chosen people, that can be done through the power of God. So He inform Israelis, what He will do for the last time. It is written in the book of Jeremiah-
I will make them to know,
Once and for all,
I will cause them to know,
My hand and My might;
Then they shall know,
I am the Lord, God". - [Jeremiah 16:21]
Why God wanted to make the Jews to know once and for all? And why through a Prophet with Godly some Attributes? It is because God sent a lot of Messengers among them and of which a no of prophets with clear proofs ie. backed by Signs, but they denied some of them and killed others- we already said before.
So, Jesus came with "Godly Power" as the Messiah to them. He urged to them to heard him. He said,"O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah [Almighty God] (sent) to you, confirming the Law (Torah or Old Testament) before me, and giving "Glad Tidings" of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad." -[61:6]
The man moved village to village to every place, so that they may hear him and they may not lost. Cause of huge journey his toe, finger bloodied all the time, but he never took rest, because that may taken by God as his negligence if a “sheep” lost.
|Bris Millah, the Covenant|
Jesus didn't tell the Israelis that he is Messiah to them, how could he? The Rabbis made some rubbish idea and added them with the criteria as Messiah analyzing the verse from Malachi——
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the L-RD. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers; lest I come and smite the land with utter destruction." -[Messiah: 3:23-24],
Elijah holds a unique place in Judaism, as Elijah never actually died in the Bible. In 2 Kings 2:11, Elijah is brought to Heaven in a chariot of fire, after which Elisha takes over as the primary prophet for the Jewish people. However, they thought Elijah will return, and his return will be quite special. Actually, they made a “hotchpotch” with their Messiah with a “Messiah to the mankind”.
So, Jesus couldn’t tell Jews directly that he is Messiah to them, but he indirectly proved himself as Messiah through a series of Parables, one of Lost Sheep- [Luke 15:3-7]; one of Lost Coin, -[Luke 15: 8-10]; and through a Parable of the Lost Son-[Luke 15:11-32] -so that they may understand him as well as Gods Mercy to them, but no one heed him except a few. Now, in that situation, if Jesus directly declared him as Messiah, do you believe they might be hear him?
Again, Jesus clarified him saying, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” -[Mathew, 15:24], So no option left for Israelis blaming God in the day of Judgement, claiming as no one sent to them as Messiah, so that they may guide them to the right path.
So, what is left for Jesus?
It was "warning them" with the resultant result of their action ie. if they reject him, they will be treated as “Habitual Transgressor" because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of God and killed the prophets without right, And most of all their “RELIGIOUSTIC PRIDE” as “CHOSEN PEOPLE” which made them “SUPERIOR” over other religious group shall be taken from them and given to them those will produce FRUITs. He said this through the following parable.
"There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he leased the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit.
“The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way. Last of all, he sent his son to them. ‘They will respect my son,’ he said. “But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, ‘This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and take his inheritance.’ So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
“Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” Will not he bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time?”
IS NOT THAT HAPPENED? Is not that vineyard taken back from Bani Israel and leased that to Bani Ismael?.
And we see God awarded Muslims with the “RELIGIOUS PRIDE” that taken back from the Israelis for the 1st and last time through a “only Messenger” but most honored to God, to His angles, to Insan, to all his creation as he is the Messiah for all (created beings). proofs? Before that let us see what Jesus said at the finishing of the parable- He said, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
“The stone, that rejected by the Masons
Has become the cornerstone;
The Lord has done this,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’ -[Zabur, 118:22-23; Matthew 21:33-42]
Interesting thing is this, the stone, which rejected by the Masons (by Angels during construction of Ka'ba, by Abraham and Ismael during its reconstruction) was fell from the Heaven as a guide for Adam where to build Ka'ba. It never worshiped, and not set as the Corner Stone to the House of God when written in Zabur even when Jesus mentioned it. Muhammad, placed it as the eastern corner stone of Ka'ba in the year 605.
Jesus concluded “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”-[Matthew 21:43-44]
What happen later? Those stand against Muhammad and Muslim, they all broke into pieces. On the other hand, Muhammad and Muslin stand against those, they all destroyed.
But it is a question why God sent only one prophet to the sons of Ismael? It is because Abraham prayed such—
And when Abraham and Ishmael were raising the foundations of the House [of God], (Abraham prayed): Our Lord! Accept from us (this duty). Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Hearer, the Knower. Our Lord! And make us submissive unto Thee ——and of our seed a nation submissive unto Thee,——- and show us our ways of worship, and relent toward us. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Relenting, the Merciful.Our Lord! ——And raise up in their midst "a messenger" from among them “who shall recite unto them Thy revelations”, and “shall instruct them in the Scripture and in wisdom” and shall make them grow. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Mighty, Wise. -(2:127-129)
Upto this, what we analyzed— We found that Israelis lost their SUPERIORITY upon others as Gods Chosen People. And that Pride of SUPERIORITY taken from them and permanently tagged on Muslims.
But the Question is, why they lost?
Qur'an Answers- Surely those who believe (became submitter on God, believe on Moses) then disbelieve (became disbeliever worshiping Calf, Opis), again believe (Promising not to do it again after killing each other, which killed 70 of them) and again disbelieve (Slandering Mary and disbelieving Jesus, they turn themselves as disbeliever), then increase in disbelief (then increasing their disbelief, disbelieving Muhammad. So they can’t able to recognize the Messiah to the mankind), Allah will not forgive them nor guide them in the (right) path.-(4:137)
What is the importance of Muhammad? Why he was chosen?
Muhammad, who’s soul was created before the creation of all. As God said to Adam: "Be you welcome, O my servant Adam. I tell you that you are the first man whom I have created. And he [Ahmed] whom you have seen is your son, who shall come into the world many years hence, and shall be my Mercy, for whom I have created all things; who shall give light to the world when he shall come; whose soul was set in a celestial splendour; sixty thousand years before I made any. thing."
It can be answered as- Everyone that works, works for an end in which he finds satisfaction. Wherefore, God, as He is perfect, hasn't need of satisfaction, because He has satisfaction Himself. And so, willing to work, He created before all things, the soul of Muhammad, His Habib, for whom He determined to create the whole, in order that the creatures should find joy and blessedness in God, whence His Habib should take delight in all His creatures, which He has appointed to be His Messenger, His slave. And wherefore this is, so save as thus He willed. This is the cause he was blessed by all Muslims, even by angels and through God Himself-
"Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels. O you who have believed, ask blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace". -(33: 56)
But Muhammad as the salvation of Mankind, what is the Justification?
This justified thus- Every prophet when he came, borne to one nation only, which was the mark of the mercy of God. And so their words were not extended save to that people to which they were sent. But the Messiah, when he shall come, God shall give to him as it were the seal of His hand, insomuch that he shall carry salvation and mercy to all the nations of the world that shall receive his doctrine.He, the Messiah, shall come with power upon the ungodly, and shall destroy idolatry, insomuch that he shall make Satan confounded; for so promised God to Abraham, saying: "Behold, in your seed I will bless all the tribes of the earth; and as you have broken in pieces the idols, O Abraham;, even so shall your seed do.""
But how we justify Muhammad as the blessing and mercy of God to the whole world?
The appointment of the Prophet Muhammad is indeed a blessing and mercy of God to the whole world. This is because he aroused the neglectful world from its heedlessness and gave it the knowledge of the criterion between truth and falsehood [Qur'an or Furqan], and warned it very clearly of both the ways of salvation and ruin. This makes him as Messiah to the mankind.
"We have sent you forth as a witness, a bearer of good tidings, and a warner, as one who calls people to God by His leave, and as a bright, shining lamp".-[ 33:45-46] "We have sent you as a blessing for the people of the whole world". -[ 21:107]
Then, is there any hope for salvation?
Qur'an Answers- Those who disbelieve and avert from the way of God -He (God) will waste their deeds. And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad- He (God) will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition and it is the truth from their Lord.-[47:1-2]
Why this is so?
God answers-That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, and those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. And in Qur'an God present to the people both their comparisons.-[see, 47:3]
Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him - it is those who will be the successful. [7:157]
So NO WAY of SALVATION without MUHAMMAD as Moses and Jesus already instruct them to follow Muhammad and that is still written in the book of Torah and Gospel.
Then what we concluded from our Analysis?
It is this that in our way of system, which we called in math "Diagonal Matrix", it is proved now that—-
——JEWS LOST SUPERIORITY even HOPE FOR SALVATION ie. they are completely LOST, RUINED.-----
"But they were the Chosen People! God made a Covenant with Abraham!!"
Once but not for ever. Remember what God replied to Abraham-
"My covenant does not include the Evildoers." - [2:124]
"O my God!!!"

When Abraham discover the Real God and came to understand that all on earth were in clear wrong, he dismantled all those false God. And when people discover it was Abraham who did the massacre. They arrest and brought him to the court to Nimrod. "Then, you- the Abraham!! who finds a True God? Who is He?"—Nimrod asked.
In that confrontation with Nimrod, Abraham argues that God is the one who gives life and gives death. The king responds by bringing out two people sentenced to death. He releases one and kills the other as a poor attempt at making a point that he also brings life and death. Abraham refutes him by stating that Allah brings the Sun up from the East, and so he asks the king to bring it from the West. The king is then perplexed and angered ordered to throw him in an open fire so that people may watch to understand clearly that there is no God but Nimrods.
And the God of Abraham nakedly save him in front of the whole country men. Then Angel Gabriel said: "Abraham, all the world shall know how God loves you; but how shall the world know the love that you bear to God? Assuredly it is necessary that you do something for love of God."
Abraham answered: 'Behold the servant of God, ready to do all that which God shall will.'
Then spoke God, saying to Abraham: "Take your son, your firstborn (ie. Ishmael);and come up the mountain Marwah [al-Marwah- a mountain now located in the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca] to sacrifice him."
And to prove his love to God, Abraham brought Ismael to the said place and down him and then raised his naked sword and downed that towards the neck. And the very moment God…….
Thus Abraham fulfilled Gods commands, but it was only a test.
Muhammad in Jewish Scripture:
1. The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet "likeunto me", from the "midst of thee", "of thy brethren"; unto him ye shall hearken;-[Deuteronomy 18:15]
2. "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brothers, like to you, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in My Name, I will bound them to hear".-[Deuteronomy 18:18-19] and,
3. "Lord came from Sinai,
And rose up from "Seir";
To them, "He shined" forth from mount "Paran",
He came "with ten thousands of saints":
And his right hand upholds a
"fiery law for them"".-[Deuteronomy 33:1-2]
i). Like unto me ie. like Moses that means the said prophet shall be with a Divine Book of Complete Shariah Laws like Torah. It indicates no one but Muhammad, as he was the only one who fulfill such criterion.
ii). Midst of thee ie. among the seed of Abraham.
iii). Of thy brethren ie. He shall not come from the seeds/sons of Israel/Issac, but from their brethren ie. From the seeds of Ismael [Ismael was the elder brother of Issac].
iv). I will bound them to hear: Jews, whom were against Muhammad, defeated by Muslims, therefore, they have left options only to accept Islam or die.
Not clear yet? So, tell me, how you bound people to hear you? Do you not see Jesus urged Jews to hear him, moving village to village on foot, bloodied his toe, finger all the time for his huge Journey, did they pay heed to him?
So, people bound to hear only when they are under the sword. Now you may understand why Muhammad fought. Again, do not forget what John the Baptist says- "I am baptizing with water, but who shall come after me, shall baptize you with fire."
Is Jesus Baptizes any, ever?
Is Jesus after John?,
Then who is after John?,
It is Muhammad, and he Baptized people with Blood [symbolically fire].
v). Seir, masculine noun שער (sha'ar), meaning gate; "it means of controlled access to a city surrounded by mountain" which indicates none but Mecca;
vi). He shined ie. Prophet Muhammad enlighten with Qur'an from mount paran which is called as Jabal-e -Noor at Mecca;
vii). Paran, a place surrounded by mountains in the Arabian desert, ie. the city Mecca; and at mount Paran, where Qur'an Reveled ie Jabal-e -Noor at Mecca;
viii). With ten thousands of saints ie. Muhammad came to conquer Mecca with ten thousand Sahaba (Saints), and
ix). Fiery law for them ie. Qur'an, the law book of God reveled on Muhammad.
Muhammad in Christian Scripture:
Gospel (of John): Jesus said to his Disciple, Nevertheless I tell you the truth;It is expedient for you that "I go away": for "if I go not away", Ahmed [Hibru word Messiah in Greek is Periclytos, which means Ahmad in Arabic] will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
[Of sin, because they [Jews] believe not on me;
Of righteousness, because
I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
he aroused the neglectful world from its heedlessness and gave it the
knowledge of the criterion between truth and falsehood [Qur'an or
Of judgment, because [Ahmad] the prince of this world is judged.]
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the "Spirit of Truth" [Ahmad], will come, "he will guide you into all truth": for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. "He shall glorify me": for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.-[John 16:7-14]
The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet "like me" from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. -[John 14:16]
Ahmed, the Spirit of Truth, whom the Father will "send in my name", "he shall teach you all things", and "bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you." [John 14:26]-
[The Periclytos is holy ghost as so called Christian Scholars claims. But those actually brilliant claims others such as MANI, 300 yrs before Muhammad, Mani, the founder of Manichean Religion claims he was that Periclytos of whom Jesus prophycised.]
i). I go away: not definitely means that he is going to be killed.
ii). if I go not away: ie it was pre planned for the sake of Jews.
iii). Periclytos: Ahmad [the Praised One] or Muhammad [Who Praise, is a translation of the Koine Greek word Periclytos. and Qur'an gives the name as Ahmad, one of several ways to say Muhammad. Just as we we say Joseph as "Joe", "Jonathan" as "John" and in the same way we find in Arabic Muhammad as Ahmad or Hamad, where "hamd" means 'praise, ie. "The one who praises (God)" or "the Praised One"; etc. Again Greek Paracletos means Comforter also indicates Muhammad as his presence brought comfort and reconciliation to family of his milk-mother.
[Sean W. Anthony, says, "The first is what one might called the “philological” solution – even if the philology supporting it is rather dubious. This solution aims to maintain the connection between Q. 61: 6 and the Paraclete of John’s Gospel, but it proposes a rather novel solution to the incommensurability between the Arabic Aahmad and the Greek paráklētos. According to this argument, the Greek παράκλητος (“comforter/advocate”) was either misread or misunderstood as περικλυτός –meaning “renowned”, “far-famed”, or even (with a little imagination) “praised one”.
This proposition first appears, to my knowledge, in the Refutatio Alcorani of the pioneering Italian professor of Arabic at La Sapienza University, Ludovicco Marracci (d. 1700).86 A modified version of Marracci’s suggestion has gained and maintains a considerable following in popular Muslim apologetic writings. Drawing upon Quranic claims regarding the corruption (tah ̣ rīf) of Jewish and Christian scriptures, such writings argue that periklytós was the original reading of the Greek text John’s Gospel rather than paráklētos. It’s certainly an odd twist of fate that the arguments of such Muslim apologetic works ultimately derive from a suggestion popularized by a priest of the Order of the Mother of God and confessor to pope Innocent XI.
Marracci’s suggestion is clever, but probably too clever. In order for his proposition to work, one first must assume that Muhammad (or even, say, a hypothetical redactor of the Qur'an) knew both Greek and Syriac. Second, one must assume that Muhammad, or the Qur'an’s redactor, lacked access to the origin al Greek text of the Gospels, and so had to “reverse engineer” a Greek word from the Semitic consonantal skeleton p.r.q.l.y.t ̣ .s, which he found in either a Syriac or CPA Gospel text. Faced with the Greek letters π.ρ.κ.λ.τ.ς, either Muhammad or the redactor then reinserted the missing Greek vowels but arrived at περικλυτός, “renowned”, rather than παράκλητος, “comforter”. While the reading butchered the original text of John’s Gospel, it did just so happen to match, albeit rather approximately, the meaning of “Ahmad”.
The scenario is so convoluted as to be absurd. -Muḥammad, Menaḥem, and the Paraclete: new light on Ibn Ishāq’s (d. 150/767) Arabic version of John 15:23–16:11-Sean W. Anthony, The Ohio State University.]
iv). "Spirit of Truth": The Spirit of Truth means "as-Sadik" in Arabic, before prophethood, Muhammad called with this name by the Quraish,
v). He will guide you into all truth: Again Christian believed on a Jesus who died an evil death on cross with thieves. Though it was written in their scriptures, yet that was not written by Jesus but by some who even were not his disciple, not ever seem him. And as there was not a single eye witnessed and as from their scriptures (Canonical Gospels) one can prove very easily with simple logic that he was not died on Cross, nor even he Crucified. But the Christian could not able to see that as they are blind. However Muslim rejects their idea, as God rejects them. And Muhammad explore this truth and this was fore told by Jesus and said "He will guide you into all truth". Qur'an says-
That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";-but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-[4:157-158] God lifted him up to a lofty station 4th heaven where angels (those works to the Universes below them as a part of extension of God) lives. And this was said by Jesus.
vi). He shall glorify me: Bani Israelis Deny Jesus as their Messiah. But Qur'an declares and confirms that Jesus was the Messiah to them. Again glorify him from falsehood of "Son of God" and Qur'an declares he was not. and this was also said by Jesus-
Jesus, said: “..For if men had not called me God, I should have seen God here as he will be seen in paradise, and should have been safe not to fear the day of judgment. But God knows that I am innocent, because never have I harbored thought to be held more than a poor slave. No, I tell you that if I had not been called God I should have been carried into paradise when I shall depart from the world, whereas now I shall not go thither until the judgment. ..."
"....that for this I must have great persecution, and shall be sold by one of my disciples for thirty pieces of silver. Whereupon I am sure that he who shall sell me shall be slain in my name, for that God shall take me up from the earth, and shall change the appearance of the traitor so that every one shall believe him to be me; nevertheless, when he dies an evil death, I shall abide in that dishonour for a long time in the world. But when Muhammad shall come, the sacred Messenger of God, that infamy shall be taken away. And this shall God do because I have confessed the truth of the Messiah who shall give me this reward, that I shall be known to be alive and to be a stranger to that death of infamy."
vii). Like me/send in my name: Like Jesus Muhammad also Messiah. Jesus was sent as Messiah to the children of Israel, but Muhammad was sent as Messiah for the Mankind.
viii). He shall teach you all things: Quran covers before creation to afterlife.
ix). Bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you: Qur'an only remembering Christians what Jesus Teaches and told to his disciples-
"O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah [Almighty God] (sent) to you, confirming the Law (Torah or Old Testament) before me, and giving "Glad Tidings" of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad." -[Qur'an 61:6] ie. Qur'an states, Jesus came to the house of Israel with Gospel [Good News or Tidings], as Messiah to the house of Israel and with a 'Glad Tidings' for them of the upcoming Prophet Ahmed, who shall be the Messiah for the creation.
Gospel of John: When the chief priests and Levites came to John the Baptist and asked him-
Are you "Christ"? - [No]
Are you Elijah? - [No]
"If you are not the Messiah (Christ in Koine Greek), and not Elijah, then", They said, "Are you "THAT Prophet?" -[Gospel - John 1:20]
John - [No], but then he told them that "someone who will come after him" and claims he is not worthy even to unlace his shoes.
i). "Christ": Christians should know that Christ is merely a shortened form of the Koine Greek word "christos," intended to mean the Hebrew word "Messiah."
ii). "THAT Prophet": Here, the question is who is "That Prophet?" John confessed, that he was not "Christ" nor even Elijah.
iii). "Someone who will come after him": Jesus not after John, but already came when he said this. So, definitely the mentioned one shall be that prophet who shall be the Messiah for the mankind and will come after him.
# A man Said, "Jews are not believe in Qur'an or Muhammad so could you Pl. prove it other ways that they will be rewarded HELL not Paradise?"
@ Bro, I am not saying they will be rewarded Hell, I said, they are completely lost, Ruined,.. so that you may consider what ever you wish.
However, a truth is a thing that you will judge from which angle you wish, it never changes. Let us consider that the Jews will be rewarded Paradise, ok?
Now, we have to find, what type of Paradise that shall be. Isn't it?
To find this, Let us start with a story like the following one for a better understanding.
"There was a king who found by the wayside a man stripped by thieves;,who had wounded him to death. And he had compassion on him, and commanded his slaves to bear that man to the city and tend him, and this they did with all diligence. And the king conceived a great love for the sick man, so that he gave him his own daughter in marriage, and made him his heir. Now assuredly this king was most merciful; but the man beat the slaves, despised the medicines, abused his wife,spoke evil of the king, and caused his vassals to rebel against him. And when the king required any service, he would say: "What will the king give me as reward?"
Now, when the king heard this, what did he do to the man?"
God has said to Jews by His prophet Isaiah: "I have nourished slaves and exalted them, but they have despised me."
"The king of the Jews is God, who found Israel in this world full of miseries, and gave them therefore his servants Joseph, Moses and Aaron, who tended them. And God conceived such love for them that He smote Egypt, drowned Pharaoh, and discomfited an hundred and twenty kings of the Canaanites and Madianites; He gave them His laws, making them heir of all that [land] wherein they are now dwelling.
"But how do Jews bear themselves? How many prophets have they slain; how many prophecies have they contaminated; how have they violated the Law of God: how many for that cause have departed from God and gone to serve idols, through their offense, and how do they dishonor God with their manner of life!
And now you ask me directly: "Why the Jews will be rewarded Hell? Why not Paradise? Bro, they will be rewarded paradise, and I will show you what will God give them in that Paradise,"
It is interesting that you wold not asked me: "What will be the punishment that God will give them in hell; and then what they ought to do for true penitence in order that God may have mercy on them."
"If you desire horses like knights, o Jew! you have to go forth to war:
if you desire fair clothing like women, o Jew! you have to spin and nurture children;
if you desire the fruits of the field, o Jew! you have to cultivate the Earth;
if you desire the fishes of the sea, o Jew! you have to go for a fishing;
if you desire honour as citizens, o Jew! you have not the burden of the republic; and,
if you desire tithes and first fruits as priests, o Jew! you have to serve God in truth.
Now, if the Jews desire here every good without any evil, then seeing this what shall God do with them in Paradise?
Surely, God will give them a Paradise where they will have every evil without any good."
# A man said, "People of this days are SMART, they are not convincing with this".
@ I said, "Then you think we are here for convincing people? You may think so but we Muslims are not Fool. We never insisting someone to accept this, nor we asked him to change his religion with ours, even we have no hidden intention in our mind ever such. It is because, we are SURE that those people after passing the last one of 1,44,000 prophets with the same message, yet they failed to find the truth, then no one but only a STUPID could ever thought of convincing them even for a fraction of a moment .
We are the people of the TRUTH. And our duty to place nothing but the truth, so that, no one could blame us in the day of STANDING.
So, we just analyze scriptures here and we believe we Muslims can do it better than any other because of the prayer of Abraham that granted by God—“shall instruct them in the Scripture and in wisdom” -(2:129) Thus it is said in the Qur'an- “Verily, We have revealed the Reminder (i.e. the Qur’an) to you so that you may explain to the people what has been revealed to them…” [16:44].
# Another Questions, "What do you say about Christians claim? They claims that they are the Chosen People of God." The link is here.__" Who Are God's Chosen People?
@ I laughed loudly, ha, ha, ha__ Are they actually claiming? What a "Wonderful Novel Stage" this world is__ "Chosen People". Ha, ha, ha,.. do you know what Iblees promised to God?
He promised: "O my Lord! because Thou hast put me in the wrong, I will make (wrong) fair-seeming to them on the earth, and I will put them all in the wrong,-[15:39]
However, What the law says?
It says_ "A Falsehood, or a True mixing with falsehood shall have no power to impose falsehood to anything, because only "PURE TRUTH" deserves this power." And, If they really claim, then we have to say SURELY they will be CURSED by God at the "day of STANDING". And, We already prove [in the article above] with a "Mathematical Formula", which is called "Diagonal Matrix" that already falsify them with the Jews."
So its a critical time for them who will fail to judges themselves to bring out TRUTH. Therefore, EARNING KNOWLEDGE is now MANDATORY for all, because, SURELY the ignorant will be CURSED at the day of STANDING too.
