Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

The definition of a particular faith varies from one person to another. If a Christian is one who follows the teachings of Jesus, and a practitioner of Judaism is one who follows the teachings of Moses, it stands to follow that a Muslim is also a Christian and a follower of Judaism. Monotheism is monotheism.

2:136 Say: "We believe in God and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abram, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make a distinction between any of them and to Him we submit."

2:285 The messenger believes in what was sent down to him from his Lord; and the believers, all who believe in God, and His angels, and His Books, and His messengers: "We do not make a distinction between any of His messengers;" and they said: "We hear and obey, forgive us our Lord, and to You is our destiny."

3:84 Say: "We believe in God and what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We do not make a distinction between any of them, and to Him we submit."

4:152 And those who believe in God and His messengers and do not make a distinction between any of them, We will give them their recompense. And God is Forgiving, Merciful.

5:69 Surely those who believe, and those who are Jewish, and the Sabians, and the Nazarenes, whoever of them believes in God and the Last Day and does good works; then they will have nothing to fear nor will they grieve.

48:29 Mohammed is the messenger of God, and those with him are severe against the rejecters, merciful between themselves. You see them kneeling and prostrating, seeking the blessings and approval of God. Their distinction is in their faces, as a result of prostrating. Such is their example in the Torah. And their example in the Gospel is like a plant which shoots out and becomes strong and thick and it stands straight on its trunk, pleasing to the farmers. That He may enrage the rejecters with them. God promises those among them who believe and do good works forgiveness and a great reward.


The core of the Holy Bible is still good. Sure, it may say that rabbits chew cud and that shellfish are not good to eat. Let me expound on the shellfish part:

22:67 For every nation We have established rites which they are to fulfill. So do not let the matter fall into dispute. And call upon your Lord, for you are on a guidance which is straight.

For myself, I find little need from the Holy Bible when I find the same message with fewer distortions in Al Qur'an (commonly abbreviated as AQ).

May the Almighty see fit to guide all seekers.

Hi Abdul-Hadi

I found discrepancies in the Hebrew Bible, just as you have.  The Qur'an explains things completely and clearly, while the Hebrew Bible doesn't.

When I was a Tanakh Jew I prostrated in prayer, kept kosher and the Sabbaths and Festivals but I always felt there was something missing.  I did wonder if it was later prophets, and came to believe in Muhammad (pbuh) in winter 2019, and then became a Sunni the following March, and at the point I accepted Qur'an-centric Islam my faith felt, and feels, complete.  My soul now feels whole.


Hi rh.  Peace be upon you too.
