Youssef, I think that your assessment, although well intended, doesn't agree with what Khalifa himself did.
Please keep in mind that Khalifa didn't declare messengership after he made the claims about the so-called mathematical miracle. He had made those claims years prior to declaring to be a messenger. He declared messengership based on a story about a dream. This dream is the cornerstone of his claim of messengership. The second cornerstone of his messengership was not "quran alone". The second cornerstone of his messengership was the removal of 9:128-129 since he claimed that he came as a messenger to "purify the quran from those two false verses."
Ironically both cornerstones of his messengership are based 100% on Hadiths. His dream about visiting with the prophets in heaven is plagiarized from Hadiths even down to the details of boasting about looking like Abraham:
قال ابن إسحاق #8207; وزعم الزهرى عن سعيد بن المسيب أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وصف لأصحابه إبراهيم وموسى وعيسى حين رآهم في تلك الليلة ، فقال #8207; أما إبراهيم ، فلم أر رجلا أشبه قط بصاحبكم ، ولا صاحبكم أشبه به منه ؛ وأما موسى ، فرجل آدم طويل ضرب جعد أقنى كأنه من رجال شنوءة ؛ وأما عيسى بن مريم ، فرجل أحمر ، بين القصير والطويل ، سبط الشعر ، كثير خِيلان الوجه ، كأنه خرج من ديماس ، تخال رأسه يقطر ماء ، وليس به ماء ، أشبه رجالكم به عروة بن مسعود الثقفي .
Here is a translation of the part of the Hadith that inspired Khalifa in case you can’t read Arabic:
As for Abraham, I have never seen a man who looks more like me and I look more like him.
And of course overyone knows that the removal of 9:128-129 is based 100% on Hadith.
Khalifa's delusions were not honest mistakes. He was a liar and a hypocrite. The two cornerstones of his messengership were based on Hadiths!
The simplest and more logical explanation is that there is simply no missing Bismallah and Chapter 8 actually included what is presently Chapter 9 and the great reading has 113 chapters. You have to keep in mind that chapter titles and decorations that separate chapters are a later innovations. In the early manuscripts the Bismallah was the only separator.
First I appreciate for allowing me to republish your claim
but not many are interested as is big blow to Sunnah, they reject your claim without any examination of of it as they do something with Miracle.
If all your claim be wrong but black stone is demonstrating something wrong with place when is nor authored in Quran, and then recent finding
adds more question
I am not sure if Dr.Eid agrees with your claim
I noticed how with a few word the mind of Yousef changed to a disbeliever so quick.
This is not first time that i see some people come here to promote miracle and with your repeated SUNNISM accusation which is mix of truth and false they change their mind which is based on misunderstanding the Miracle and can not understand Interlocking system is used in Miracle .
They feel more comfortable with REFORM ( keeping some of past plus some new ideas) than clear cut of their idolization learning past. They are happy to do their 5-3-2- .... 17 times with code 17 and 19 as tradition. If Rashad was an theist and then his claim and ideas could be clear of any tradition but growing up in a religious family and practcing it for 40 years could mislead him to some mistake which could result of his companions which wee yet they discuss the issues schi olarly and ignore opinion of regular people like me.
It is years that I have stated iam not Submitter but believer.
I remember a female Submitter was here and may be here yet that promoting Miracle with all kind of word but no example, when i contacted to her and asked how much you know about Interlocking system is used in First chapter she did not know enough and when i asked what caused you believe in Miracle she told me that her sister believed and she do not lie !!! and then she told me a personal case of her life was going for 19 years !!!!!
I think i should start to open a topic for testing all Submitters, from top to down to see how many of them understood reality behind such Security textual numerical interlocking system.
Many of them thin anything multiple of 19 is Miracle and your claim for 1/19 works prefect with these people, instead of bringing example and explaining the how the system works and functions they send disbeliever to hell and other one use it to claim be another messenger.
I am happy with your presence and your post for challenging and something Eid which either have PHD, you in mechanic and Eid in Mathematics, but academic degree can help to certain point for understanding Miracle, first thing is disconnection with parents belief totally and convert to researcher for find existence of superhuman with any name.
I make it short Miracle do not need any human support its interlocked superhuman system is clearing everything and removing doubt from heart of doubters by itself.
What you I and others write on this screen and is recorded is not Hadith, our children would not read that as Hadith but opinion of older generation and their understanding of truth and fact
And now we have such simple to understand impossible to imitate . ( No manipulation design your own from scratch,) http://mastertablet.ca/http://youtu.be/6ace4i1osfUhttp://purified-scripture.com/
