Title: :: Was Muhammed name of a Prophet? ::
Post by: mmkhan on September 18, 2012, 12:35:23 PM
Salaam,

I am wondering how this can be solved. I never found any names in AlQuraan ending with this tanween (http://s16.postimage.org/7g525pigh/dammahtain1.jpg) either two of them, as in Muhammed i.e., (http://s11.postimage.org/61fz5f1nz/Muhammed.png)

Other prophet's names used in AlQuraan are as:

اِبۡرٰہِیۡمَ
اِسۡحٰقَ
اِسۡمٰعِیۡلَ
ہٰرُوۡنَ
مُوۡسٰی
سُلَیۡمٰنَ
دَاوٗدَ
اَیُّوۡبَ
یُوۡسُفَ
یَعۡقُوۡبَ
اِلۡیَاسَ
زَکَرِیَّا
یَحۡیٰی
عِیۡسٰی
یُوۡنُسَ


Why not any name ends with tanween? Is Muhammed not a name? If it is a name then how about 6:114 and 6:139?

6:114 اَفَغَیۡرَ اللّٰہِ اَبۡتَغِیۡ حَکَمًا وَّ ہُوَ الَّذِیۡۤ اَنۡزَلَ اِلَیۡکُمُ الۡکِتٰبَ مُفَصَّلًا ؕ وَ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰتَیۡنٰہُمُ الۡکِتٰبَ یَعۡلَمُوۡنَ اَنَّہٗ مُنَزَّلٌ مِّنۡ رَّبِّکَ بِالۡحَقِّ فَلَا تَکُوۡنَنَّ مِنَ الۡمُمۡتَرِیۡنَ
6:114 Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?" And those to whom We gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

مُنَزَّلٌ is set on same weight as مُحَمَّدٌ so why don't they used it as a name? Please click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=6&verse=114) to see other translations of this aayat.

6:139 وَ قَالُوۡا مَا فِیۡ بُطُوۡنِ ہٰذِہِ الۡاَنۡعَامِ خَالِصَۃٌ لِّذُکُوۡرِنَا وَ مُحَرَّمٌ عَلٰۤی اَزۡوَاجِنَا ۚ وَ اِنۡ یَّکُنۡ مَّیۡتَۃً فَہُمۡ فِیۡہِ شُرَکَآءُ ؕ سَیَجۡزِیۡہِمۡ وَصۡفَہُمۡ ؕ اِنَّہٗ حَکِیۡمٌ عَلِیۡمٌ
6:139 And they say, "What is in the bellies of these animals is exclusively for our males and forbidden to our females. But if it is  dead, then all of them have shares therein." He will punish them for their description. Indeed, He is Wise and Knowing.

مُحَرَّمٌ is also set on same weight as مُحَمَّدٌ, so why did they translate it and why not use as a name? Please click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=6&verse=139) to see other translations.

If we also translate the word مُحَمَّدٌ, which is derived from the word حَمۡدُ, means praise and مُحَمَّدٌ means praised one.

48:29 مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ...
48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah... [regular translation]

If we translate the word مُحَمَّدٌ, 48:29 will be translated as "Praised one is the Messenger of Allah....", this means whoever is the Messenger of Allah is the praised one.

Fortunately or unfortunately I don't have any evidence, not a single aayat that says that AlQuraan was given to Muhammad. Why there is no such aayat if it was given to him?

In fact means some sense, by Quran teachings and applying it and studing carefully, any one of us can be Muhamed, and a Rasul of the Quran message. its the time you perfected youre deen and then you can pass to others..
Quran teach us..IMOP to be messangers ourselfs. no one of us being special than other..just deliverers of the mesage. inside our coomunities countries cityes neighboorhoods we (because we study and inherited Quran laws) must spread truth and be active as like a rassul in and to whoever sourounds us.
Maybe im just talking sh... but Allah knows best:)

Salaam brother,

I agree with you. And I also believe that making someone special is giving a place beside God which is clear shirk. Only Allah is special and all respect due to Him alone.

I am glad to know that you like my posts, thank you for taking your time to read them  :)


May Allah protect us from all kind of Shirk and increase us in knowledge and keep us guiding to His only path  :pr

33.40  مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّ‌جَالِكُمْ وَلَـٰكِن رَّ‌سُولَ اللَّـهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا

33.40 Muhammad is not the father of any one of your men, but is God?s Apostle and the Seal of all Prophets. And God has indeed full knowledge of everything.

My understanding of this matter, is that what God is telling us is the same thing He keeps telling: prophets are all one, praised, exalted, because of the divine light and message, humanity is one, praised, exalted, because of the divine light and message, the seal of the prophets is THE MESSAGE. There has only been one message from God, the same message all over and over, in one language or another, in one form or another, there is only one message coming from God: we are Hi, everything is His, and to Him everyone and everything shall return. The seal of Prophecy stated by the prophet who received the Qur'an is the seal of conformity to the Qur'an, of corresponding to the Qur'an.

muhammad, may be a name or not, it is grade a condition attained by submission and belonging in heart and mind to the rabb, may be it is a name or may it is not and what nomad says makes sense that we all receive a message personally when we dare and can attain to that blessing and exaltation. It is humanity's vocation to be exalted and be one with everything and everybody and with all the prophets.

One again, the message is the unity of God, the unity of everything. We are not loose, we are not lost, we are one.

My understanding is that Muhammad is not a name but a title for people who deserves praise. This title is also used in the bible, where its been translated as 'lovely one'.

All prophets were Muhammad's and I agree with Nomad that every righteous person can also become a Muhammad.

Hadithers just altered the muhammad title by twisting it to mean a name of a particular person and created a whole cult around this non-exsisting person. They needed to create that person in order to have someone they could attribute all their nonsense to.

If the muhammad title wasnt found in the quran, they would simply just find another title which they could label as being a name.
For instance, God in Quran ask us to be truthfull(sadek).
1. --> Hadithers begin to claim that Sadek is the name of the messenger of Quran

2.  They begin to say and write a lot of things which they claim Sadek said.

3. They make a new shahada which ends with: Sadekrasool Allah

And woula - Sadek  is created. And by time, even his whole life is also created, where he was born in mekka and married 11 women, one of them being a litte child. In other words, my dear friend - we are talking about hadithers playing the game SIMS of the 8 century version!

In reality, we dont have any knowledge of what the name of the prophet who came with quran was. God choosed to hold his identity unknown, and call him 'oh prophet' in the quran.

Peace

what about in 61.6  ???

this is 61,6

And when Jesus, son of Mary, said: �O children of Israel, I am a messenger of God to you, authenticating what is between my hands of the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be �most acclaimed.�� But when he showed them the clear proofs, they said: �This is clearly magic�

what is it you dont understand in it?

61:6 وَ اِذۡ قَالَ عِیۡسَی ابۡنُ مَرۡیَمَ یٰبَنِیۡۤ اِسۡرَآءِیۡلَ اِنِّیۡ رَسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ اِلَیۡکُمۡ مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَیۡنَ یَدَیَّ مِنَ التَّوۡرٰىۃِ وَ مُبَشِّرًۢا بِرَسُوۡلٍ یَّاۡتِیۡ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِی اسۡمُہٗۤ اَحۡمَدُ ؕ فَلَمَّا جَآءَہُمۡ بِالۡبَیِّنٰتِ قَالُوۡا ہٰذَا سِحۡرٌ مُّبِیۡنٌ
61:6 And when Eisa, son of Maryam, said, "O sons of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad." But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, "This is obvious magic."

اَحۡمَدُ


If you notice this is also without tanween, unlike Muahmmed.

And also take a look at the ending part of Aayat "But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, This is obvious magic."

but that one is saying it's a 'name' is what I mean. Is there something in Arabic grammar that says 'this is a NAME' of someone..............not sure what I'm trying to get across here, sorry.

I can see there is a difference in the word Muhammed to the others but don't know enough about the grammar and such to have a clue what tanween actually means or does to a word.

If we also translate the word مُحَمَّدٌ, which is derived from the word حَمۡدُ, means praise and مُحَمَّدٌ means praised one.

48:29 مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ...
48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah... [regular translation]

If we translate the word مُحَمَّدٌ, 48:29 will be translated as "Praised one is the Messenger of Allah....", this means whoever is the Messenger of Allah is the praised one.

Peace mmkhan,

That is imprecise; no "is" in the verse nor can praised one be substituted in the verses to make sense. Simply try it...

3:144 وما and not محمد Muhammad الا only رسول messenger

33:40 ما not كان is محمد Muhammad ابا father احد one من from رجالكم your men ولكن and nonetheless رسول messenger الله The God وخاتم and seal النبيين the prophets وكان and is الله The God بكل in every شيء a thing عليما Knowing

48:29 محمد Muhammad رسول messenger الله The God والذين and the ones who معه with him اشداء tough على on الكفار the disbelievers رحماء merciful (plural) بينهم among them

Fortunately or unfortunately I don't have any evidence, not a single aayat that says that AlQuraan was given to Muhammad. Why there is no such aayat if it was given to him?

47:2 والذين and the ones who امنوا believe وعملوا and do الصالحات the righteous works وامنوا and believe بما in what نزل descended على on محمد Muhammad وهو and it الحق the truth من from ربهم their Lord كفر rids عنهم from them سيئاتهم their evil deeds واصلح and correct بالهم their condition

Qur'an is understood best via cross-reference and logical construct. Proof: بين between يديه His hands (i.e. directly from The God) transmission via Gabriel to messenger instructed to ?say?...

2:97 قل say من who كان is عدوا an enemy لجبريل to Gabriel فانه so indeed he نزله descended it على over قلبك your heart باذن by permission الله The God مصدقا confirming لما to what بين between يديه His hands وهدى and guidance وبشرى and glad tidings للمؤمنين to the believers

3:1 الم
3:2 الله The God لا no اله deity الا only هو He الحي The Living القيوم The Sustainer of all
3:3 نزل descended عليك to you الكتاب the book بالحق in the truth مصدقا confirming لما to what بين between يديه His hands وانزل and descended التوراه the Taurat والانجيل and The Injeel

12:111 لقد truly كان is في in قصصهم their stories عبره a lesson لاولي for those الالباب the understanding ما not كان is حديثا narratives/hadith يفترى invented ولكن and nonetheless تصديق confirmation الذي the one that بين between يديه His hands وتفصيل and detailed explanation كل each شيء a thing وهدى and guidance ورحمه and mercy لقوم for people يؤمنون they believe

6:114 Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?" And those to whom We gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

6:139 And they say, "What is in the bellies of these animals is exclusively for our males and forbidden to our females. But if it is  dead, then all of them have shares therein." He will punish them for their description. Indeed, He is Wise and Knowing.

Salaam sister,

The verse 66:1 is talking directly to the nabi at this moment, not a nabi from the past.

It's exactly the same as for example:
5:51 "... يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا "
or
10:23 "...  يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ ...."
There are hunderds of verses like this.

As per my current understanding when "ya-ayyuha..." is used then it's referring at the one who is present at the moment who fits the description after the word "ya-ayyuhaa", not someone from the past.

Please take a look at this verse to understand better:
12:88 فَلَمَّا دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ قَالُوا يَا أَيُّهَا الْعَزِيزُ  مَسَّنَا وَأَهْلَنَا الضُّرُّ وَجِئْنَا بِبِضَاعَةٍ مُزْجَاةٍ فَأَوْفِ لَنَا الْكَيْلَ وَتَصَدَّقْ عَلَيْنَا ۖ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يَجْزِي الْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ
They are talking directly to the one who at that moment fits the description of alaziez.

btw. The story of Yusuf and his brothers explains  a lot for seekers of knowledge  :yes


RED: ok, I misunderstood.

Salaam Bender,

I think he is referring to Ahmed because of falamma, where Eisa already told directly to Bani Israel that inni rasooluAllahi ilaikum so no need of saying falamma again.

I have not translated sihr to magic, I have just copied Sahih International translation and did not go into other details because don't want to deviate from the topic in hand.

I can't see why doubt the exisence of the prophet to whom the Qur'an was revealed. I do not care what his name was or whether it was Ahmed or Muhammad or whatever. We do not strain at things being revealed to Musa, to 3isa or to any previous prophet mentionned int he Qur'an. It would be strange and contradictory that the Qur'an landed in our hands without ever there having been a prophet who received it and handed down.

I feel that there is too much obssession of hadiths and hadithists to the point of wanting to reflect our dislike for hadithism on the very person of the prophet who received the Qur'an. However, the feat of handing down the seal of prophecy should, I think elicit some thought of his significance, even if hadithists say nonsense about him. Musa did not hand down something equivalent to the Qur'an that has been preserved in its integrity uncorrupted, so why should we have the highest regard for Musa, but grudge Muhammad, or whatever the name, our consideration?

I think that all prophets should be considered as a unity, the riyalullah, and not grudge them our acknowledgement.

So, who is being called in the Qur'an khatam annabiyin? If the prophet to whom the Qur'an was revealed is not Muhammadun, who is khatam annabiyin?

"33.40  مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّ‌جَالِكُمْ وَلَـٰكِن رَّ‌سُولَ اللَّـهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا

33.40 Muhammad is not the father of any one of your men, but is God?s Apostle and the Seal of all Prophets. And God has indeed full knowledge of everything."

Who is this person who is not the father of any of the "riyal" of those these words are addressed to?

I can't but feel that, indeed, the prophet to whom descended de Qur'an was Muhammadun, by name or by condition", and that he is the khatam an-nabiyin, which besides, confirms (the khatam) the essencial unity of prophethood and and all prophets.

Salaam sister,

The verse 66:1 is talking directly to the nabi at this moment, not a nabi from the past.

It's exactly the same as for example:
5:51 "... يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا "
or
10:23 "...  يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ ...."
There are hunderds of verses like this.

As per my current understanding when "ya-ayyuha..." is used then it's referring at the one who is present at the moment who fits the description after the word "ya-ayyuhaa", not someone from the past.

Please take a look at this verse to understand better:
12:88 فَلَمَّا دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ قَالُوا يَا أَيُّهَا الْعَزِيزُ  مَسَّنَا وَأَهْلَنَا الضُّرُّ وَجِئْنَا بِبِضَاعَةٍ مُزْجَاةٍ فَأَوْفِ لَنَا الْكَيْلَ وَتَصَدَّقْ عَلَيْنَا ۖ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يَجْزِي الْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ
They are talking directly to the one who at that moment fits the description of alaziez.

btw. The story of Yusuf and his brothers explains  a lot for seekers of knowledge  :yes


RED: ok, I misunderstood.

Salaam,
Bender

thanks.. i never thought about that.. you are right, its in present tense not in past tense.. I stay corrected  :)

Salaam huruf,

You cannot prove that Muhammad [if any, not yet confirmed] was given AlQuraan. Please quote at least a single aayat mentioning it. If AlQuraan proves that a person called Muhammad is the Prophet, we [me and other here] don't have any problem in accepting it. Why should we have any problem to accept him? But I personally don't like to search for my parents Deen into AlQuraan and satisfy myself.

Now lets see how the aayat quoted above with the word Muhammadun can be translated, inshaAllah.

33:40 مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّ‌جَالِكُمْ وَلَـٰكِن رَّ‌سُولَ اللَّـهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا
33:40 Praised one is not the father of any of your men, but is Allah?s Messenger and holding the Seal of Prophets. And Allah has indeed full knowledge of everything.

Please click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=33&verse=40) to see other translations of 33:40.

This aayat might be a criterion to recognize Allah's Messenger. Not sure though, Allah knows best. If you notice it says رِّ‌جَالِكُمْ means of your men. If this aayat is referring to Muhammad who lived 1400 years back, then how Allah relates it to us by saying Muhammed is not the father of any of YOUR men?

خَاتَمَ does not mean end, but it is like a certificate or degree or seal confirming him of Prophets. If you take it end or final then please take a look at the following aayaats.

2:6 اِنَّ الَّذِیۡنَ کَفَرُوۡا سَوَآءٌ عَلَیۡہِمۡ ءَاَنۡذَرۡتَہُمۡ اَمۡ لَمۡ تُنۡذِرۡہُمۡ لَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ
2:6 Indeed, those who disbelieve - it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them - they will not believe.

2:7 خَتَمَ اللّٰہُ عَلٰی قُلُوۡبِہِمۡ وَ عَلٰی سَمۡعِہِمۡ ؕ وَ عَلٰۤی اَبۡصَارِہِمۡ غِشَاوَۃٌ ۫ وَّ لَہُمۡ عَذَابٌ عَظِیۡمٌ[/color]
2:7 Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.

Please click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=2&verse=6) to see other translations for 2:6 and click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=2&verse=7) to see 2:7.

خَتَمَ is used to seal upon the hearts of kafirs.

4:137 اِنَّ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا ثُمَّ کَفَرُوۡا ثُمَّ اٰمَنُوۡا ثُمَّ کَفَرُوۡا ثُمَّ ازۡدَادُوۡا کُفۡرًا لَّمۡ یَکُنِ اللّٰہُ لِیَغۡفِرَ لَہُمۡ وَ لَا لِیَہۡدِیَہُمۡ سَبِیۡلًا [/color]
4:137 Indeed, those who have believed then disbelieved, then believed, then disbelieved, and then increased in disbelief - never will Allah forgive them, nor will He guide them to a way.

Please click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=4&verse=137) to see other translations for 4:137.

Once those who disbelieved or became kafir how can they believe again when already their hearts has been sealed as per 2:7? This clearly shows that خَتَمَ does not refers to end or finalizing but it simply means to show authorization.

Finally please check carefully 4:155

4:155 فَبِمَا نَقۡضِہِمۡ مِّیۡثَاقَہُمۡ وَ کُفۡرِہِمۡ بِاٰیٰتِ اللّٰہِ وَ قَتۡلِہِمُ الۡاَنۡۢبِیَآءَ بِغَیۡرِ حَقٍّ وَّ قَوۡلِہِمۡ قُلُوۡبُنَا غُلۡفٌ ؕ بَلۡ طَبَعَ اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہَا بِکُفۡرِہِمۡ فَلَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ اِلَّا قَلِیۡلًا
4:155 And for their breaking of the covenant and their disbelief in the signs of Allah and their killing of the prophets without right and their saying, "Our hearts are wrapped". Rather, Allah has sealed them because of their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.

طَبَعَ also sealed? Please click here (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=4&verse=155) to see other translations or 4:155.

Thank you for your kind words. As we discussed in other replies, Ahmedu chapter is already over.

chapter is over ?
do you refer to this:
When he [Ahmed] CAME to them with clear evidences, they SAID, this is obvious magic. This means, Ahmed came already and he got answer from his people that was magic.

61:6 And when Issa, son of Mary, said: �O children of Israel, I am a messenger of God to you, authenticating what is between my hands of the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be AHMADU But when he showed them the clear proofs, they said: �This is clearly Sihr/magic�

ISMUHU AHMADU means Ismuhu Ahmadu.
if Ahmadu is not MUHAMMAD, who is Ahmadu ?

Please note that this sentence have also sense
And when Issa, son of Mary, said: �O children of Israel, I am a messenger of God to you, authenticating what is between my hands of the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be AHMADU. But when MUHAMMAD/AHMADU came many centuries after and when MUHAMMAD/AHMADU showed them the clear proofs, they said: �This is clearly Sihr/magic�

When we read the verses after:
61:7 And who is more evil than he who invents lies about God, while he is being invited to submission? And God does not guide the wicked people.
61:8 They want to extinguish the light of God with their mouths. But God will continue with His light, even if the rejecters hate it.
61:9 He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the system of truth, so that it will expose all other systems, even if the polytheists hate it.

so Quran would be the sihr/magic.
it is not over for me

Peace.

Salamun alaika,

Problem will be resolved and confusion will go away InshaAllah the moment you find time to read in some gramar book about Tanween and its divisions.
Salaaman Mazhar,

I have given references of other instances and aayaats to show how Allah used words in AlQuraan. Grammar books could be wrong and misguiding in some places as it was made later. But the Book of Allah is perfect and set patterns and designs to guide those who don't have knowledge of grammar. This is how I believe AlQuraan guides alNaas [people] as per 2:185.

Please relate your understanding with aayaats or words of AlQuraan instead of grammar, so that it will be easy for us to understand what you wanted to say.

Salamun alaika,

Pl do not forget that the Arabic language was a living language when Qur'aan was revealed. Arabic language succeeds Qur'aan. And grammar is pen down for non-natives to facilitate them perceiving the text of that language.

One name is without tanween. Its pattern does not allow tanween. Tanween is a vowel-less consonant after a voweled consonant. Its presence on a Proper Noun shows that it is fully declinable. The other names you have mentioned for comparison are not fully declinable being of foreign origin.
Understanding a book of foreign language, one needs to first know the elementaries of the language in which the book is written.

the author refers to various issues and allegations that were made ​​on this topic. He looks - in contrast to the discussion here-at the former scriptures and lets stand the ism as name.
 I also think that Muhammad can be understood as an adjective, but also as a possible name. Because, as others have noted, it is clear that the Koran was revealed to an apostle, a messenger, how he has now been called, is actually secondary.

Peace Brother MMK,

2: 144 [AND MUHAMMAD is only an apostle; all the [other] apostles have passed away before him: if, then, he dies or is slain, will you turn about on your heels? But he that turns about on his heels can in no wise harm God - whereas God will requite all who are grateful [to Him]. ] Mohammed Asad

so Quran would be the sihr/magic.
it is not over for me
I did not understand this part. Can you please elaborate more. Thanks!

Salaam mmkhan
to elaborate, i will give an oriented traduction of verses

61:6 And when Issa, son of Mary, said: �O children of Israel, I am a messenger of God to you, authenticating what is between my hands of the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be AHMADU. But when AHMADU came many centuries after and when AHMADU showed them the Quran  as clear proofs, they said: �This Quran is clearly Sihr/magic�
61:7 And who is more evil than he who invents lies about God, while he is being invited to submission? And God does not guide the wicked people.
61:8 They want to extinguish the light of God, the Quran brought by AHMADU, with their mouths. But God will continue with His light, even if the rejecters hate it.
61:9 He is the One who sent AHMADU as messenger with the guidance and the true system, at the top of all the religion of GOD, Wich is Millat Ibrahim, as Teached in the real torah and in the real injeel, even if the polytheists hate it.

I noticed too late that my previous message was quite messy with quotes and answers. I will try to put it anew clearly. The quotes are from brother MMkhan:

I did not pretend to prove anything. But the question is the Qur'an was revealed to someone, who was that someone? As I said, I do not care whether his name is Muhammad or Valentine, but who was he. He was somebody, God names many of his prophets int he Qur'an, why shouldn't He name the person who is being charged with the Qur'an?

As to the trasnlation that you put, fine, I do not mind either way that you translate Muhammadun as praised one or leave it as Muhammadun, the question is he or is he not the messenger to whom the Qur'an was given to transmit?
Salaam huruf,

Very sorry for late reply.

Red part: You said you don't care whatever his name is either Muhammad or Valentine. In the same sentence you repeated twice "who was that someone?" and "but who was he"?

Honestly, I don't know whom alQuraan was given and what is his name. And I don't feel it important until Allah mentioned it in AlQuraan for us to know.

Blue part: Whosoever transmits alQuraan is the messenger.

Quote
Yes I notice what it says, but then to which present day prophet is God referring to if you say that God in that aya is addressing us? Who is that prophet of nowadays, acording to you, who is khatam annabiyin that you say has to be of today because God is addressing us and therefore could not be of whatever number of years ago?
I was just forwarded what Allah has shown me i.e., Muhammadun is not referring to someone who lived 1400 years back. Who is that Allah referring to today, sorry, I don't know, if Allah informed me, I will surely love to share that with the permission of my TheCreator's permission.

Quote
All this is well and good, but I cannot see why you are addressing all this to me. You must be thinking of somebody else, because I have not at all stated that Muhammad or whoever you say the Qur'an was revealed to was the end of prophets or anything like that.
I was not thinking of anyone while replying to your post. Its gives me such impression when I read in your previous paragraph asking "who is khatam annabiyin". Sorry, if I misunderstood you.

Quote
You answer things I have not brought up and you do not answer the questions I have in fact asked, namely:

To whom was the Qur'an revealed and was also charged with transmiting it. Does que Qur'an itself adress that person or talk about him?

Salaam
You asked to whom was alQuraan REVEALED initially then you asked to whom it was GIVEN and now again to whom it was REVEALED. There is big difference between those two.

AlQuraan is still revealing and will reveal inshaAllah. But as I told you above, I don't know exactly to whom it was given.

If my answers are not clear to you, please do let me know, I will try to re-frame again, inshaAllah.


May Allah increase us in knowledge and guide us to His true path  :pr

Peace brother MasoomBoy,

Sorry for late reply bro. You are referring to 3:144 not 2:144. I will to explain it, inshaAllah.


3:144 وَ مَا مُحَمَّدٌ اِلَّا رَسُوۡلٌ ۚ قَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِنۡ قَبۡلِہِ الرُّسُلُ ؕ اَفَا۠ئِنۡ مَّاتَ اَوۡ قُتِلَ انۡقَلَبۡتُمۡ عَلٰۤی اَعۡقَابِکُمۡ ؕ وَ مَنۡ یَّنۡقَلِبۡ عَلٰی عَقِبَیۡہِ فَلَنۡ یَّضُرَّ اللّٰہَ شَیۡئًا ؕ وَ سَیَجۡزِی اللّٰہُ الشّٰکِرِیۡنَ
3:144 And praised one is not but a messenger. Indeed messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.


How will YOU turn back on YOUR heels if one who lived 1400 years back die or killed? So, it is not referring to Muhammad who lived 1400 years back as they say.

It is a very good remark.
Let see were the expression Sihr mubin appears (i found 8 verses):

Verses where sihr Mubin is quran:

6:7 And if We had sent down to you a book already written on paper, and they touched it with their own hands, then those who have rejected would say: "This is but clear magic!"
10:76 So when the truth came to them from Us, they said: "This is clearly magic!"
34:43 And when Our clear revelations were recited to them, they said: �This is but a man who wants to turn you away from what your parents were worshiping.� And they also said: �This is nothing except a fabricated lie.� And those who disbelieved say of the truth when it has come to them: �This is nothing except evident magic!�
46:7 And when Our clear revelations are recited to them, those who rejected said of the truth that came to them: ?This is evidently magic!?

Verses where sihr mubin is ou could be not quran:
37:15 And they said: ?This is nothing except evident magic!?
11:7 He is the One who has created the heavens and the earth in six days, and His Throne was upon the water; so as to test who from among you works the best. And when you say: "You will be resurrected after the death," those who have rejected say: "This i
27:13 So when Our signs came to them for all to see, they said: "This is clearly magic!"

Our verse ;) :

Conclusion: So Sihr mubin is used by quran for quran.

22:78 And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you ?Muslims? before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper. - Sahih International

Let me ask you, what is your name? Do you say "Muslim"? If not, why? Don't you like the name given to you by Allah?

19:7 یٰزَکَرِیَّاۤ اِنَّا نُبَشِّرُکَ بِغُلٰمِۣ اسۡمُہٗ یَحۡیٰی ۙ لَمۡ نَجۡعَلۡ لَّہٗ مِنۡ قَبۡلُ سَمِیًّا
19:7 O Zakariya! surely We give you good news of a boy whose name shall be Yahya: We have not made before anyone his equal.

How did Allah gave this name "Yahya"? Yahya means "will live". Please take a look at 8:42 for the word "Yahya".

There are many references to quote from. In short, "ism" or "ithm" means "attribute" not "name". Ithms are all adjectives. You can also check 2:31-33.

Salam mmkhan!
thanks for your detailed explanation. :)
for me every name also contains an attribute, for example

Simone (my name)
information: Meaning / translation

italy. Form of Simon, 'Simon' is of 'Simeon' is derived, in the New Testament is the original name of Simon the Apostle Peter, Simon is also the name of one of the 12 apostles, Simon the Zealot, in the Old Testament is one of the 12 sons of Jacob, Simeon and hence the name of one of the 12 tribes of Israel
"He (God) has heard

or mirjam

With its many variations of the name Miriam / Miriam / Mary is in the German language most common female first name. The meaning of the name however, is not fully understood. [1]
After older understanding - as well as in the Jewish tradition - the name is a noun form of the Hebrew names to me / mar for "bitter" and jam for "sea". He would be with "sea salt" to play well "marine myrrh" or "marine drop". This meaning may quietly resonates after the medieval name Stella Maris ("Star of the Sea") for Mary, the mother of Jesus.
More recent interpretations, however, see an originally Egyptian origin as Deriving mry ("loved"), possibly with the divine subject Amun: merit-amun, "Beloved of Amun".
In addition there are other theories: [2]
The Exalted, High as a participle of the verb stem rwm Hebrew for "to stand up, raise '
The Untamed Shrew or from the Hebrew verb stem mry for "unruly"
The (of God) Gift from the Hebrew verb stem rym "pay" for
The Fertile, from the Hebrew verb stem mry "be fruitful" for.

for me personally , the term NAME always contains an associated meaning- but of course we can find perhaps meaningless name, I do not know ... and normally we don't call us by i.e. "ja, come here you standing up!" ;D
for this, you are clear right... :handshake:

Just saw this thread. Some time ago, I also wondered about the different endings/vocalisations of the prophtes mentioned in Qur'an. Actually, it's not only Muhammad that falls out of the rule but several more: Nuh, Hud, Saleh, Lut, Shu'ayb; all others are definite= without nunation/tanween. So maybe all undefinite names could be attributes while the others are proper names?

[47:2] Those who believe and work righteousness, and believe in what was sent down to Muhammad?which is the truth from their Lord?He remits their sins, and blesses them with contentment.

Sahih International: And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad - and it is the truth from their Lord - He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition.

[3:144] Muhammad was no more than a messenger like the messengers before him. Should he die or get killed, would you turn back on your heels? Anyone who turns back on his heels, does not hurt GOD in the least. GOD rewards those who are appreciative.

[33;40]Sahih International: Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing.

Sahih International: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers - so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward.[48:29]

Peace be upon you all,

I am new to this forum and am genuinely baffled by this thread. When a translation from one language to another language is carried out, the words chosen reflect the style of the translator?s interpretation of the original meanings. Some may adopt a more ?literal? style of translation or some try to bring out the ?flavour? of the text, but in all this ? names are NEVER translated.  So, why are you translating the name Mohammed?

If, for example, I know a man whose name is Hasan (which means beautiful), when I call him, I will say ?Hey Hasan, how are you??

I will not say ?Hey Beautiful, how are you??

So, Why are you translating names?

Peace all,

It was interesting to read about your theories, personally I believe there was a Muhammad, but not like hadiths claim. And humans are known to beautify history, portraying it better than it was because they more or less idolized the prophet, making historical sources biased.

This was my view of what was discussed.

Another thing that came to mind when you wrote about Ahmed and Muhammad. In the Bible's OT we can read that Abraham's name was first Abram, but God said he was to be called Abraham after he had proven himself. I do not know if this has anything to do with the name confusion.

Anyway, the message of the Quran is more important than the messengers of old. God used these devotees as signs for mankind. It may be why God has not made their names proper, as the person behind the name was a sign to mankind.

Of course the Quran talks about a man living in the 7th century as you can see stories narrated with a good description of the events. Most likely was that man named Muhammad or Ahmed maybe first.

Like I said, his name is not important other than knowing of his existence as a sign and living up to the message both he and previous messengers delivered.

Most things written in hadith is just pure nonsense, especially regarding religious practice. They are probably fairy tales invented in the legend of prophet Muhammad, just as untrue things were attributed to Jesus and other messengers.

May God help us follow the light.

21:60 قَالُوۡا سَمِعۡنَا فَتًی یَّذۡکُرُہُمۡ یُقَالُ لَہٗۤ اِبۡرٰہِیۡمُ
21:60 They said, "We heard a young man mention them who is called Ibrahim."

As per these aayaats, Ibrahim was called Ibrahim since his teen age.

Peace mmkhan,

Ok, so the OT is wrong on that matter too. See how little we can trust the Bible/Torah. And some people believe full out in Hadith.

Well, I stated that he was called Abram and thought it could be a link to this, but obviously this is not the case.

However, logically there was a prophet in the 7th century who delivered the Quran, but his name is not overly important. Although I doubt the prophet would be unknown/anonymous in the scripture.

We must follow his message, the Quran. Not man-made hadith which has been attributed to him and not follow our own conjecture or wishful thinking.

May God help us understand the truth

"Just saw this thread. Some time ago, I also wondered about the different endings/vocalisations of the prophtes mentioned in Qur'an. Actually, it's not only Muhammad that falls out of the rule but several more: Nuh, Hud, Saleh, Lut, Shu'ayb; all others are definite= without nunation/tanween. So maybe all undefinite names could be attributes while the others are proper names?"

Currently, I'm studing arabic language and I wanted to share the answer to the above question. The arabic male names end with nunation like Muhammad, Ali, Khalid, Yasir and non-arabic names end with damma. All the female names either arabic or non arabic end with damma. Like Amina, Fatima and Mariam. These are the arabic language rules.

I hope this was helpful!

Prove what? Do you mean the book was sent down by God without someone writing it down?

There are lots of verses hinting at that it was a prophet receiving the scripture, you can easily find it yourself.

Regarding 7th century, if you meant that, I am just following common understanding, even if it is wrong it is irrelevant as we have the Quran.

I just meant that there was a prophet living after Jesus who delivered the Quran. Otherwise who lived through the events described so well in the Quran and who was the one communicated through 2nd person singular.

Peace be upon you mmkhan,

So, let me get this right ? you are claiming that Muhammad is not a name, but a ?title? due to some grammatical anomaly for it to be a name?

As, posted by others, Muhammad is mentioned a few times in the Qur?an. As an example, the following Ayah mentions Muhammad

(Pickthall translation) 2:144 ?Muhammad is but a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) have passed away before him. Will it be that, when he dieth or is slain, ye will turn back on your heels? He who turneth back on his heels doth no hurt to Allah, and Allah will reward the thankful.?

How can a title die or be slain?

That is a person being refereed to.  A number of other Ayah?s refer to this very same person? as Muhammad.  If this is indeed a ?title? as you claim, why are other prophets mentioned by name and the prophet Muhammad as a ?title??

Additionally, why are the previous prophets not referred to by the same ?title?: Muhammad? After all, they were also delivering the same message.

May Allah guide us all.

33.

There can be no difficulty to the Prophet in what Allah has indicated to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And the command of Allah is a decree determined. (38)

(It is the practice of those) who preach the Messages of Allah, and fear Him, and fear none but Allah. And enough is Allah to call (men) to account. (39)

 Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things. (40)



So, who is this khatam an-nibiyin?


As far as I gather from the contents of the whole of Qur'an his mission is the message contained in the Qur'an, which is a reminder and a check for all revelation from the Divina Light. That is why he is called khatam annabiyin, because his message, the Qur'an is khatam a nubu'wa, the seal of profecy.

The Qur'an keeps telling that God sent warners everywhere to every people and keeps reminding that His message has been the same and He has kept reminding humanity of His revelation, and telling us that all prophets are one, that they are not better one than the other, because in fact Prophecy is what they are, the belong to Prophecy and not Prophecy belongs to them. Just like the angels they are subservient to their mission and not the other way around.

To guide us in the maze of purported or authentic revelations and divine "certainties" propferred by men, comes the seal of prophecy the message transmitted by Muhammad and whether it is a title or a name or both things, does not change a thing in the message. And the message is the same one handed down from all time of humanity through whichever prophet. And there have been many prophets for humanity, not just those mentionned in the Qur'an. That is Muhammad, the seal of all those, the sublime confirmation of the sublime message to all humanity through the ages. So that when we learn and compare from whetever messages, we know which message handed down is authentic and true or not, be the prophet who transmitted it known or unknown. Prophets are one, their mission one, pass the Divine Light to people. And that is why the Qur'an orders us to deal equally with all the prophets because they are the same, they are one, they are all indeed praised, because their mission is one who broghut light to humans.

Let us not be stingy, they are all sent for our service, if we do not feel at ease calling one of them Muhammad, let us call all of them Muhammad, they are one and they did love the people and served them.

Peace be upon you Man of Faith,

I am new to this forum, and I must admit i am dismayed by the over analysing and the constant search for the 'hidden' meaning of the Quran. Things that I would take literally, are in this forum being dissected and analysed to such an extend that it makes me wonder;  did Allah intend  the Quran to be understood by a bunch of code breakers only?

I myself read/recite the Quran but do not understand Arabic. I rely on no less than 5 different translations to understand any ayah.  I freed myself from the obsession with Hadith that most Muslims have, as I could not rationalise most of the stuff in the light of the Quran ? and also a lot of it did not make any logical sense as well. But now I find myself in another dilemma ? I feel some of the stuff here is at the other extreme of the scales.

May Allah guide us all on the true straight path.

Peace FindingTheTruePath,

I suppose it is a problem with humans that they often must be so exaggerated about what they do, so they lose all proportions. Does God not tell us that the Quran is easy to learn?

But on the other hand, the traditionalists distorted much of the religion over centuries, so its practices need to be purified. However we shouldn't jump to hasty conclusions, as to remove physical prayers, invalidate Hajj, change fasting rules and such changes.

I have felt it cannot be that physical prayers are invented, even Jews do them to some extent and they were not really islam-friendly. It feels strange so many circumstantial sources would be so wrong.

And here in this thread people try to erase prophet Muhammad from history. Why not erase Jesus or Abraham too? There are little proof of them too.

Despite this risky business I find this forum to be the best place to find the truth, and not all here are so quick to adopt such controversial ideas. Personally I am careful about rushing to conclusions, and you will find many other too.

May God show us the true path

Peace,

Red: Nope, alQuraan is for all, but unfortunately people don't or cannot come out of their mindsets that they already in practice. This might be the reason, rasools are sent to people to correct them in their understandings, and to explain them what they don't know, etc.

Decoding of aayaat of alQuraan can be done by any person who is:

- Willing to do so by giving time for it with an open mind.
- By seeking Allah help and guidance on the same.
- And trying to be a Muttaqee [one who avoid whatever Allah asked to avoid].

Many things that you don't agree with does not make it wrong or hasty. If you stick to alQuraan and seek Allah's help in its understanding, you will surely come to conclusions on many things that you don't know or you don't believe them to be true now. Please be patient and do not deny the aayaat, just keep on hold as per 10:109.

Do you deny the aayaat of Allah in alQuraan? Don't you see evidence given in the opening thread. Do you think if you love Muhammad you will get Jannat or am I trying to get Jannat by omitting Muhammad?

I simply don't follow what I like or my wishes brother, I only follow what Allah guides me to, alhamduliAllah.

Saying anyone wrong is very easy, but proving them wrong with the aayaat are the real deal.

Peace mmkhan,

I apologize for seeming arrogant in the earlier post, I realized I came about a bit bluntly and it was not my intention. It seems it can be a human defect.

What is most important is that we worship God alone, believe in the Hereafter and are righteous.

God was most likely not harsh when he put certain rituals on our shoulders considered his 1:1 attributes.

The individual development is most important, like becoming kind, generous, helpful etc, to be admitted into God's kingdom. This is what probably will keep most people
from salvation, involving idol worship. The ego as idol is common.


By the way brother mmkhan, I used to call myself Christian before this. I do not have much connection to traditional islam and hadith etc. I did never believe in the trinity and it may  have made it easier for me to accept the Quran.

Anyway, my opinion on this thread is that Muhammad was a prophet, but the arguments against this are interesting, I have to admit that. More solid proof and I might believe it. Unfortunately this feels just like saying Jesus never lived.

May God guide you into the light

before being a nabi, Muhammad was a pagan.
we can deduce from that that the name he was given at birth was probably pagan.

some historians give the name of Qotham, or Zobath (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Muhammad)

according to legends, he was named qotham by his great father in memory of a son lost 3 years before.

on the other side, even the name of the father of the prophet. Abd Allah is not usual in pagan society and it seems that there is no abdallah before that abdallah.

Whatever is the real name of the prophet before prophecy, his name after is Muhammad or Ahmed wich are extracted from the same root.

6:155 And this is a Book that We have sent down which is blessed, so follow it and be aware, that you may receive mercy.
6:156 Lest you say: "The Book was only sent down to two groups before us, and we were unaware of their study!"
6:157 Or you say: "If the Book was sent to us we would have been more guided than they!" Clarity has come to you from your Lord, and a guidance and a mercy. Who is more wicked than he who denies the revelations of God and turns away from them? ....


62:2 He is the One who sent to the OMMIYIN a messenger from among themselves, to recite to them His revelations, and to purify them, and teach them the Book and the wisdom. And before this, they were clearly astray.

3:20 If they debate with you, then say: "I have submitted myself to God, as well as those who follow me." And say to those who have received the Book and the OMMYIN: "Have you submitted?" If they have submitted then they are guided, and if they turn away, then you are only to deliver, and God is Seer over the servants.

7:157 "Those who follow the OMMI messenger prophet whom they find written for them in the Torah and the Injeel; he orders them to kindness, and prohibits them from vice, and he makes lawful for them the good things, and he makes unlawful for them the evil things, and he removes their burden and the shackles that are upon them. So those who believe in him, and support him, and help him persevere, and follow the light that was sent down with him; these are the successful ones."

OMMI meaning is clear according to quran : who don't receive book.
the illeterate meaning is from hadiths.

Peace be upon you all,

I also, like brother Man of Faith, do not idolize the prophet Muhammad, but reading through some of the posts (in other threads) here I feel as some people think this was just a regular delivery guy from DHL who came to drop off a package. For me personally he has my utmost respect, for he was chosen from all of mankind to deliver Allah's message. He is also described in the Quran as an 'honoured messenger' ... so why do we not hold him in honour (without idolizing him)?

069.040
Asad: Behold, this [Quran] is indeed the [inspired] word of a noble apostle,
Pickthall: That it is indeed the speech of an illustrious messenger.
Sahih: [That] indeed, the Qur'an is the word of a noble Messenger.
Shakir: Most surely, it is the Word brought by an honored Apostle,
YusufAli: That this is verily the word of an honoured messenger;

I struggled for a long time with the Hadith ... they just did not make ?sense?, just as I am struggling to understand why it is claimed his name was not Muhammad.  I cannot rationalise the reasons given so far. Maybe I have missed something.

Interesting little info here:

Mahomet

Mahomet, the history of whom is well known to us, recognized the teaching of Moses and Jesus Christ. He thought that he had to draw people's attention to wrong interpretations given by Jews-rabbis, but at the swne time he criticized also the Orthodox Church - particularly for its final decision accepted in the 4th century to recognized Jesus Christ as a God's Son and stating the dogma of Trinity. Jesus Christ was for him a prophet lighted up by the Holy Spirit (Ghost). Mahomet considered himself to be a person, whom archangel Gavriil ordered to teach people, but his personal behaviour was not ordered him from the above, he did not pretend to it.

One must not forget that the Arabs' cultural level in the epoch of Mahomet was lower than that one in the epoch of Jesus Christ. They were idolaters and did not dispose moral foundations stated according to religious laws. The law of the strong one predominated among them in the epoch of Moses at the beginning of the 7th century.

As well as Moses Mahomet forcibly brought his people to monotheism and worldly morals.

OMMI meaning is clear according to quran : who don't receive book.
the illeterate meaning is from hadiths.

I think you do not understand the meanings of "Pagan"..
Ummi / unlearned / uneducated doesn't necessarily mean Pagan..

The "Books within a bundle called Bible" (and so does the Quran) is not THE ONLY source of guidance thus you can deduce those who are not aware of Bible (or Quran) is definitely a Pagan.

And that's actually one of the key message being put forward with Muhammad..
It's the same as saying: "You Jews/Xtians (People of the book) are not the ONLY guided people and/or the chosen people on earth. There are many others! And I (God) can guide whomever I wish with or without any book"

i think Ommi is to be opposed to people of the book.
i am now from people of the book. Muhammad became from people of the book after he received Quran.

i don't know what was the religion of Muhammad before he received the book.
Pagan is the most probable hypothesis. Perhaps he accepted Jewish faith before receiving the Book. I don't know.

God sent prophets to all people so says the Qur'an, so all peoples are peoples of the book.

But, anybody, even while formally or outwardly posing as people of tghe book, can become pagan, by beliefs or behaviour. To become pegan you do not need to worship Mercury or a goat. You can worship yourself, your fancies, another person, ideas, whatever, and that is why there are people that have gone astray. Guidance came to everybody, and amongs all peoples there have been those that go astray. Within christians, within muslims, within anything, because strayness is always within reach, you do not have to do anything extraordinary, and you may not even feel it, you may even think that you are serving or defending an ideal...

But actuallly not having faith that ALLAAH will guide you and protect you, means tha what you say from your mouth you do not believe in. It means what'?  :hmm

Very interesting post, surprisingly, there are number of occassions people posted ayat 33:40 and did not analyse it further, I agree all the names are attributes to the personalities in Quran, which can be proven by Allah's name/attribute, He is Rehaman, Jabaar, Khahar etc but He is one Allah (The God).  Similarly, the attributes to Al-Kitab are Quran, Furqaan, Burhan, Rooh, Torah, Injeel but only one Book.  Going back to 33:40

"Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things."

1. Muhammad is not the father of men (Muhammad is in present tense and he is not a father of men)
2. But he the Messenger of Allah and seal of the prophets (Muhammad's job is a messenger of Allah, and he seals that message to all the prophets, including Ibraheem, Mosa, Essa so on).
Therefore Muhammad existence from all times as a messenger until present. 
Further the people who were given the book are mentioned in 6:83-90

Peace:

Of course the name Mohamed means something (and something great since it was given to the prophet by God), names given to people by God have meanings. not like the names given to us nowadays that are totally meaningless. Remember that in the torah God named Abraham, since that was not his original name, and also  God changed the name to Jacob calling him Israel, etc.   

Why do you argue about something that only God Knows (is The All Knowing obliged to tell us in every revelation why He changes the name of His prophets and when, how is it that you reason, The all-mighty does whatever he wills). Of course we should not idolize prophet Mohamed, but we certainly shall respect his name, for he was blessed by God with revelation. Mohamed was the name given by God to His last messenger/prophet, and that all that matters.

God will not reward us for finding the original names of his prophets. He doesn't say: run to find all the hidden stuff in the Qur'an, he says Run to do the good deeds. Adore only God and treat your brother as you would like to be treated. respect all the prophets and make no difference between them.

Here is an explanation of the name  of Prophet Mohamed found for 61:6 Mohamed Assad's message of the Qur'an:

6 This prediction is supported by several references in the Gospel of St. John to the Parakletos (usually rendered as  Comforter") who was to come after Jesus. This designation is almost certainly a corruption of Periklytos ("the Much-Praised"), an exact Greek translation of the Aramaic term or name Mawhamana. (It is to be borne in mind that Aramaic was the language used in Palestine at the time of, and for some centuries after, Jesus, and was thus undoubtedly the language in which the original - now lost -texts of the Gospels were composed.) In view of the phonetic closeness of Periklytos and Parakletos it is
easy to understand how the translator - or, more probably, a later scribe - confused these two expressions. It is significant that both the Aramaic Mawhamana and the Greek Periklytos have the same meaning asthe two names of the Last Prophet, Muhammad and Ahmad, both of which are derived from the verb hamida ("he praised") and the noun hamd ("praise"). An even more unequivocal prediction of the advent of the Prophet Muhammad - mentioned by name, in its Arabic form - is said to be forthcoming from the so-called Gospel of St. Barnabas, which, though now regarded as apocryphal, was accepted as authentic and was read in the churches until the year 496 of the Christian era, when it was banned as "heretical" by a decree of Pope Gelasius. However, since the original text of that Gospel is not available (having come down to us only in an Italian translation dating from the late sixteenth century), its authenticity cannot be established with certainty.

I understood.

Until you stop reading all this, you will never understand alQuraan's true meaning bro. You did not properly read nor understood the opening post of this thread for sure... because I was saying something else there and you came up with something else.

Anyways, I will make it easy for you, just answer my simple question.

Q. Who is Muhammad? If you say [as you already said in your post] a messenger and/or a prophet, prove it from alQuraan. There is no person called Muhammad in alQuraan.

The true meaning of the Qur'an is only known by The All-knowing,  I will understand the true meaning of the Qur'an only if God wills it. For the moment I am happy to see it as guidance, guidance from The Most-Merciful for those who open their hearth humbly and are not blindly arrogant. I seek refuge in God from being of the ignorant.

3:144...... وما محمد إلا ر‌سول
    And not muhamad (mhmd) except messenger
33:40 ....ما كان محمد أبا أحد من ر‌جالكم ولكن ر‌سول اللـه
     Muhamad is not the father of any one of your men, but is God's Apostle/messenger
47:2..........والذين آمنوا وعملوا الصالحات وآمنوا بما نزل على محمد
whereas those who have attained to faith and do righteous deeds, and have come to believe in what has been bestowed from on high on/over Muhamad
48:29......محمد ر‌سول اللـه ۚ والذين معه أشداء على الكفار‌
   Muhamad messenger/apostle (of) God and those who (are) with him (are) firm towards/over the disbeliever/deniers of the truth

Remember that everybody here is posting his/her personal opinions about the Qur'an/God's message, patience patience is a sign of the Guided ones. That which is written in the verses above is enough for me to recognize the prophet as  Muhamad. If we deny the name of Muhamad, we will end up denying Jesus, for his name is not in the old testament, and neither he mentions his name in the words attributed to him in Matthew/Mark/Luke/John. Remember that God is the only one that is going to show us on judgement day the truth about that on which we differ.

Those aayaat are already been discussed on this same thread in previous pages, please take a look at them if you want to understand it. I simply wanted to say that the usage of word "MuhammadUN" or "MuhammadIN" in alQuraan is not used as a name. If you like to accept it, its for you and if you want to deny, its up to you. No offence intended.

مُّحَمَّدٌ رَّسُولُ اللَّهِ ۚ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ أَشِدَّاءُ عَلَى الْكُفَّارِ رُحَمَاءُ بَيْنَهُمْ ۖ تَرَاهُمْ رُكَّعًا سُجَّدًا يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلًا مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانًا ۖ سِيمَاهُمْ فِي وُجُوهِهِم مِّنْ أَثَرِ السُّجُودِ ۚ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ مَثَلُهُمْ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ ۚ وَمَثَلُهُمْ فِي الْإِنجِيلِ كَزَرْعٍ أَخْرَجَ شَطْأَهُ فَآزَرَهُ فَاسْتَغْلَظَ فَاسْتَوَىٰ عَلَىٰ سُوقِهِ يُعْجِبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِيَغِيظَ بِهِمُ الْكُفَّارَ ۗ وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ مِنْهُم مَّغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا

Muhammad is the messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate themselves (in prayer), seeking Grace from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. On their faces are their marks, (being) the traces of their prostration. This is their similitude in the Taurat; and their similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed which sends forth its blade, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick, and it stands on its own stem, (filling) the sowers with wonder and delight. As a result, it fills the Unbelievers with rage at them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous deeds forgiveness, and a great Reward.

The red highlight above is from me.

Dear mmkhan,

It seems that you don?t know much about the rules and regulations governing the Arabic language. You just write down a bunch of words out their context, from The Qur?aan, claiming that, because they SOUND just the SAME in your ears, then they all must belong to the same group, linguistically. You're just following your whim and conjecture on issues you have little or no knowledge about, none whatsoever.

In 48:29 I purposely, and in big lettering, highlighted the PROPER name ?MUHAMMAD? and the pronoun ?HIM? that was used to refer to the Prophet, pbuh, in the verse, i.e. the part that talks about ?those who are with HIM?. You disregard the whole meaning and context of the verse and follow your own impulsive gibberish.

Peace brother,

Red: This is not from alQuraan, but what I wrote is indeed from alQuraan. Allah never said in His Book that Arabic Language rules and regulations which was made by humans is the way to understand the aayaat of alQuraan. But Allah said, He guides whom He wills... How? This is an interesting question, you have to understand this point.

AlKitaab is nothing but referring to alQuraan's TEXT, which is very important, and alKitaab is the guidance for alMuttaqeen 2:2. If you ignore that and run behind man made rules and regulations which Allah never confirmed, then you have to answer to your Lord what you have done. And surely, here you follow your own wishes. Do you see this difference bro?

In 48:29 I purposely, and in big lettering, highlighted the PROPER name ?MUHAMMAD? and the pronoun ?HIM? that was used to refer to the Prophet, pbuh, in the verse, i.e. the part that talks about ?those who are with HIM?. You disregard the whole meaning and context of the verse and follow your own impulsive gibberish.

Peace,
Khalil   
Why didn't you read previous pages of this thread to get your answer on this. I did not disregard it, I said in my previous post
Quote from: mmKhan
Salaam Man of Faith and Khalil,

Please go through this thread from beginning, these questions has been answered already.

Cool down brother, how can you blame me with "I disregard the whole meaning and context of the verse", "I follow my own impulsive gibberish" and "I am following my whim and conjecture" without studying this thread in full? Even if you do so, I will ask you to seek Allah's help and guidance on this subject, inshaAllah, He will show you the right path.


May Allah increase our knowledge and guide us on His path :pr

I am wondering how this can be solved. I never found any names in AlQuraan ending with this tanween (http://s16.postimage.org/7g525pigh/dammahtain1.jpg) either two of them, as in Muhammed i.e., (http://s11.postimage.org/61fz5f1nz/Muhammed.png)

How about the verses 11:42, 11:45, 26:106, 37:75, 71:21, and 71:26 below. I hope you didn't miss them on purpose.

وَهِيَ تَجْرِي بِهِمْ فِي مَوْجٍ كَالْجِبَالِ وَنَادَىٰ نُوحٌ ابْنَهُ وَكَانَ فِي مَعْزِلٍ يَا بُنَيَّ ارْكَب مَّعَنَا وَلَا تَكُن مَّعَ الْكَافِرِينَ

وَنَادَىٰ نُوحٌ رَّبَّهُ فَقَالَ رَبِّ إِنَّ ابْنِي مِنْ أَهْلِي وَإِنَّ وَعْدَكَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنتَ أَحْكَمُ الْحَاكِمِينَ
إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ نُوحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ    
وَلَقَدْ نَادَانَا نُوحٌ فَلَنِعْمَ الْمُجِيبُونَ
قَالَ نُوحٌ رَّبِّ إِنَّهُمْ عَصَوْنِي وَاتَّبَعُوا مَن لَّمْ يَزِدْهُ مَالُهُ وَوَلَدُهُ إِلَّا خَسَارًا

Peace Khalil,

Not only "Nooh" but also "Loot", "Hood", "Saleh", "Shuaib" are also used with tanween, so they might not the names. It is like:

2:67 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=2&verse=67) وَ اِذۡ قَالَ مُوۡسٰی لِقَوۡمِہٖۤ اِنَّ اللّٰہَ یَاۡمُرُکُمۡ اَنۡ تَذۡبَحُوۡا بَقَرَۃً ؕ قَالُوۡۤا اَتَتَّخِذُنَا ہُزُوًا ؕ قَالَ اَعُوۡذُ بِاللّٰہِ اَنۡ اَکُوۡنَ مِنَ الۡجٰہِلِیۡنَ
2:67 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=2&verse=67) And when Moses said to his people, "Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you take us in ridicule?" He said, "I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant."

Here the word Baqara is not a name and also note that "fatha tanween" is used on word baqara that means a cow or any cow. And when it is pointing to a particular one, then it will be said as:

2:68 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=2&verse=68) قَالُوا ادۡعُ لَنَا رَبَّکَ یُبَیِّنۡ لَّنَا مَا ہِیَ ؕ قَالَ اِنَّہٗ یَقُوۡلُ اِنَّہَا بَقَرَۃٌ لَّا فَارِضٌ وَّ لَا بِکۡرٌ ؕ عَوَانٌۢ بَیۡنَ ذٰلِکَ ؕ فَافۡعَلُوۡا مَا تُؤۡمَرُوۡنَ
2:68 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=2&verse=68) They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is." [Moses] said, "[Allah] says, 'It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,' so do what you are commanded."

Here "dhamma tanween" is used on the word Baqara to point out a particular one among cows, but still it is not referred as name. This is how Allah explains, alhamduliAllah :hail

Hope you get what I am saying inshaAllah.

Yes word Muhammad can be literally means "commendable".But it's normal, if a person's name adopted from the words.

Even we're reject hadith.This means we aren't fully or radically trashed the hadith.May hadith already distorted in term of fiqh, but not so in historical shira'.

You should say "I" instead of "WE" brother. I don't have any place for hadith nor for so called historical shariah.

Nope! That's not funny if you say "I don't know", but this is funny to claim to be a muslim and care about people more than Allah. I personally don't care about people, but I care about my Lord, Allah. What if He don't like it if I say something, is important that what people think.

Peace brother,

Nope :nope: and why should I? And there is no aayat asking me to do so, do you have any? Please quote. Besides that, I have the following aayaat to share.

5:105 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=5&verse=105) یٰۤاَیُّہَا الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا عَلَیۡکُمۡ اَنۡفُسَکُمۡ ۚ لَا یَضُرُّکُمۡ مَّنۡ ضَلَّ اِذَا اہۡتَدَیۡتُمۡ ؕ اِلَی اللّٰہِ مَرۡجِعُکُمۡ جَمِیۡعًا فَیُنَبِّئُکُمۡ بِمَا کُنۡتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ
5:105 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=5&verse=105) O you who have believed, upon you is yourselves. Those who have gone astray will not harm you when you have been guided. To Allah is you return all together; then He will inform you of what you used to do.

16:91 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=16&verse=91) وَ اَوۡفُوۡا بِعَہۡدِ اللّٰہِ اِذَا عٰہَدۡتُّمۡ وَ لَا تَنۡقُضُوا الۡاَیۡمَانَ بَعۡدَ تَوۡکِیۡدِہَا وَ قَدۡ جَعَلۡتُمُ اللّٰہَ عَلَیۡکُمۡ کَفِیۡلًا ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰہَ یَعۡلَمُ مَا تَفۡعَلُوۡنَ
16:91 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=16&verse=91) And fulfill the covenant of Allah when you have taken it, and do not break oaths after their confirmation and surely Allah has made you a kafil over yourself. Indeed, Allah knows what you do.

To understand what "Kafil" means, you can take a look at 3:37 where Allah made Zakariyya a kafil of Maryam. Hope this may help inshaAllah.

It seems like you're ignoring the fact that the earliest manuscripts of the Quran didn't contain any diacritics/vowel marks, and that they were introduced much later. Now please don't say that you don't believe this very well-known fact since it's not written in the Quran.


And as for tanwin, the signs which indicate, "-un, -in, -an", may be written in a vocalised text even if they are not pronounced. So, even if it's written "Muhammadun", you have no warrant to conclude that it is not a name of a person as you can't find any other names containing a tanwin.


And your claim that the Quran was revealed upon Prophet Moses (pbuh), contradicts with hundreds of verses of the Quran.

The thread which you've referred above, clearly shows your fallacies and how you've failed to reply to the arguments which Mazhar has put forward against yours. Hence, I would hinder myself from going into more arguments regarding this subject. Please don't mind, cause I think that even if I give you irrefutable proofs, you won't see them as "proofs", and our arguments will go in circles as it happened before between you and Mazhar.

Sorry to jump in here but I thought he meant he doesn't care about what people think, if they think something is funny or not. Like some people will mock the idea of talking to God who we can't see. They can't see that they themselves constantly study and refer to what can't be seen such as the past, future, all manner of natural processes and so on. The follow up question would why do we need to see God rather than to know God? Anyway, that's just an additional point about how people can take on a mocking tone and I don't think we should care about what they think.

Thanks for trying to calm the situation. I may have rushed to conclusions. Well, brother mmkhan is entitled to his opinion about the Quran and that there is no prophet called Muhammad. Only thing is that I wonder to who God revealed Quran to then. And who is the prophet in the stories of Quran, anonymous?

Like people say, it is actually irrelevant, but it is still weird to have an anonymous prophet who delivered the Quran :)

I actually agree with you in that I believe Prophet Muhammad was an actual man named Muhammad, it follows through with the system/approach established before. I mean, if Muhammad is simply a title, if that's what Allah swt has stated and that's what He guides me towards I will accept but right now that's not what I get from the Quran. As you said, each to their own. :)

Peace supportpeacenotwar,

True we are our own individuals, but I wish there was a little bit more consensus. Is the Quran really so hard to interpret?

But as I have stated before; it feels like people are over-ambitious at cleansing traditional islam in my opinion in some areas. Some have removed prayers completely, no form of them at all and it seems so weird and is not symmetric to what I have grasped of the Quran. Sujud may not mean prostration, but what does it matter. I think it means "to submit" or something along the lines. It does not prevent me from prostrating since it is a form of very humble greeting and not only related to religion historically. It is taking bowing down a little further. You can do sujud by prostrating is what I believe and say some beautiful words in prayer.

Sorry for drifting off-topic. Muhammad or not Muhammad - is the question. Since we have no other name, let us call the man Muhammad (glad that "Muhammad" is not alive and heard all crap attributed to him ;)

Be cool. I understand the challenges you face, brother MMKhan in discovering a breakthrough phenomenon on who was given the Quran and to present it as the truth. IMHO, that indeed is a very remarkable finding. The truth is yet to be discovered. I am open. I give you my support. Please continue with your research. The Quran is self-explanatory, consistent and easy to remember.

I have studied carefully on the concept of messenger, they are living in every nation, they use the language of the people, their mother tongue, they go to the market, they are people like you and me (sorry I don?t have time to show the ayats). Among them are human and angel messengers.
And We did certainly give Musa the Book (lKitaba) and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Isa, the son of Maryam, clear proofs (bayinati) and supported him with the lqudusi. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party you denied and another party you killed. (2:287)

That is the Book, wherein is no doubt, a guidance to the godfearing (2:2)
Also people of Abraham was given the Book?

Is it the same Book? Perfected. Protected. Delivered by angel messenger, and the Quran as messenger, to human messengers for all people in all nations? Unlike other prophets, why there no story on prophet Muhammad in the Quran? Am I into dangerous zone?

Peace:

O people why do you argue about the things that you will never know with certainty. why don't you stop and focus on the clear and easy stuff. If you go down this path you will only end up in more sects, creating more division and confusion than unity.

3:7He it is who has bestowed upon thee from on high this divine writ, containing messages that are clear in and by themselves - and these are the essence of the divine writ - as well as others that are allegorical.5 Now those whose hearts are given to swerving from the truth go after that part of the divine writ6 which has been expressed in allegory, seeking out [what is bound to create] confusion,7 and seeking [to arrive at] its final meaning [in an arbitrary manner]; but none save God knows its final meaning.8 Hence, those who are deeply rooted in knowledge say:"We believe in it; the whole [of the divine writ] is from our Sustainer - albeit none takes this to heart save those who are endowed with insight.

If this is how God refers to the ones that fight/dispute because of what their own sick mind tell them is the final and true meaning of allegorical verses, think of how God sees those that fight/dispute for what only their own minds see and that the truth of it they will never know.

Just because the scribes decided to put the same diacriticals as other words to the name/title of prophet Muhamad, it doesn't mean that Muhamad is not the way God called His messenger.

Peace wrkmmn,

Thanks for quoting an aayat. I also have an aayaat to share, please follow:

39:45 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=39&verse=45) وَ اِذَا ذُکِرَ اللّٰہُ وَحۡدَہُ اشۡمَاَزَّتۡ قُلُوۡبُ الَّذِیۡنَ لَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِالۡاٰخِرَۃِ ۚ وَ اِذَا ذُکِرَ الَّذِیۡنَ مِنۡ دُوۡنِہٖۤ اِذَا ہُمۡ یَسۡتَبۡشِرُوۡنَ
39:45 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=39&verse=45) And when Allah is mentioned alone, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink, but when those other than Him are mentioned, immediately they rejoice.


May Allah protect us from such behavior and guide us on His path alone :pr

the issue here is not about worshiping God alone, don't twist it. The issue is that you want to leave us with a nameless prophet. Do you really believe that the believers, which have been many since the birth of Islam, would forget to pass on the true name of the prophet. Come on! that's nonsensical, and is like saying that the Israelites would have forgotten the name of Moses, or the Christians Jesus.  If we accept your proposition, we will have a book containing a message from God  that was received by nobody. Then in the future somebody like You will come out with the Idea that the Book descended it form heaven,  or that somebody found it under a rock (like the Mormons).

I wonder why many here call themselves wise-ones/burn outs, but their words don't reflect it. Also, they call themselves believers, but in their word the sign of God is hard to see or totally absent. I have started to believe what many traditionalist accuse the followers of this movement of, of being people trying to twist the Book just to fit their twisted westernized mind.   

Have anybody here heard the proverbs: He who calls himself wise is the worse fool.

Then many here react angrily and arrogantly: a true believer can't feel anger nor be arrogant, those are signs of the hypocrites who only look for personal glory and to be praised by the other sheeps. humbleness and Patience, patience is the sign of the guided ones.

Peace,

Where does 39:45 enter the picture in response to wrkmmn's post? I doubt he means that we should feel joy about hearing Muhammad's name. Just that we should not twist the Truth. I think very few here idolize Muhammad to any greater extent.

Use the ayat of the Quran wisely please.

I think that borther Mmkhan is very much within his own reflections and believes in them but when it comes to bringing over to others what he thinks or believes is right, I really cannot make heads or tails of it, specifically in this question. I still do not know what he is getting at or what he sees wrong with people thinking that the Qur'an was revealed or given or borught or whatever to a perticular person and that person having a name or being denominated by whatever means.

Usually revelation, be it new revelation or the same revelation renewed, comes and is transmitted through certian people, all over the world, sometimes as utterances in the transmitter own expression, sometimes in the very form it was revealed.

I find it surprising that somebody should take the whole of Qur'an as authentic and really a revelation from The Divine, and that at the same there should be3 so much stinginess in recognizing that it has come through some human vehicle to the rest of the people who are not that vehicle. What is wrong with having a rasul, human rasul, as has been done all over time all over the world, to bring the good news to the people? I am at a loss as to this whole problem of a messenger being a problem.

And yes, we all may be messengers for everybody else, but so what? That first messenger to give us word by word the Qur'an what was it, a cloud, an automatic device? The praised or the most praised automatic device? Yes the Qur'an is embedded in everybody's fitra, so what? There is still a Qur'an word by word that has been transmitted generation after generation, and which must have come from somewhere, as a brother says, what? was it found under a rock or something?

For sure I do not want to make fun of anybody, except myself, but I sum up saying the same as at the beginning of this message, brother Mmkhan, be clearer, we do not see what it seems you want to show, really what are you getting at? so that we do not have to guess and, as it seems, guess wrong again and again.

Red: Am I twisting the word of Allah? I seek refuge in Allah for the same. Do you see that aayat about WORSHIPING Allah alone? :&

Why don't you see if you are fitting in the aayat 39:45? Is this aayat not for you? I see in each and every aayat whether I fit in that in a positive or negative sense. I quoted this aayat only after seeing people's frustration when Allah is mentioned ALONE. I don't see what is the problem with it? Why they need some other human with Allah for whatever reason it might be, specially when it is not mentioned in alQuraan.

@huruf, Salaam,

I am not trying to apply anything on anybody, I am just trying to bring all to our ONE SINGLE LORD, ALLAH. But I can see, I fail here to do so. I also saw that no body cares to see what aayaat of alQuraan says, they are ready to reject or ignore it. But they are happy to believe in something which is NOT mentioned in alQuraan. Surprized!!!

When I got upset and sad after reading all the responses to this thread where people don't want to accept only Allah alone. Allah has shown me 6:33. Either you see it fits at the situation or not, but I am thankful to my Lord on His guidance, alhamduliAllah :hail

Who says anything about needing other than God? I think that you underestimate people. Because we acknowledge that the Quran was delivered by a man called Muhammad we associate partners with God? This has not to do with being content with God alone and it is just for a factual reason I believe this. The Quran could have been delivered by a man called Santa Claus too if it was true and we would believe it.

I think the emotions from some people is because they were able to leave the hadiths about the bad Mohammed, but they did not leave yet the hadiths about the good Mohammed.
So doing the good Mohammed injustice (ofcourse not from Quranic point of view) is at the moment a little bit to much.

Peace brother Bender,

It comes down to the interpretation of verses. We acknowledge through the verses that this person was called Muhammad, nickname or not. And like I said, hypothetically it would not matter if he was called Santa Claus, we just want something to refer to.

I understand if it is thrilling to remove Muhammad completely off your map for the purpose of nullifying the practices of traditional muslims once and for all. I am just curious who the man in the Quran who lived through the stories was then. And who was the man with so many stories invented about him and original written parchment with the Quran on written by him.

Whoever it is who wrote it we can call him Muhammad even if by nickname. How does it matter?

Should we refer to him as the anonymous messenger that the Quran was revealed to and who caused a lot of stories to emerge? Codename Muhammad is better then, is it not? Is it better to pretend he never existed?

Oh by the way, how about "the Quran man"?

Okay. I admit I am a bit sarcastic now. But remember if you erase Muhammad from history you have a book written by no one since God did not finish it straight in Heaven and sent it down. It was revealed to someone who wrote it down. A prophet.

Still I wonder why you are so touchy about one man no matter what his name was. And it is not because I embrace hadith, I have barely ever read a hadith.

God bless you

Yes, I am puzzled, he torah or whatever or the injil or the zabur has permission from intelligent people to have been received by one prophet or other, but there is no such permission for the Qur'an. Understood. Good. Great. So did it  come through a pure virgin who didn't even feel something passed through her or there is another way we stupid people have not thought about?

I am beeing sarcastic, yes, because, I asked certain questions or raised certain points, other people did too, and the only answer I got was that God alone was wanted. Great. Obviously I hadn't thought of that, I was having luch with Saturn, Brhmaputra, Bush son and father, a few gnomes and dunces and whatever.


Please do not hide behind "Godaloneskirts?". We may be on another lower, much lower level than others, but please leave the God alone admonitions and holier than thou stuff  and say whatever you have to say as to how the Qur'an came to the first people who got it. You know? that book that starts with Bismillaherahmanirrahim, and then goes on with Alhamdul-llahi... See the one I mean?

All the other put forward we already got it, even before reading this thread,  we all are prophets or could be. Great. Good. Very well. That I am sure of, but I confess that I did not have anything to do with giving the Qur'an to print orwrite down or recite the first time it was done. All I want to know is how and through which means it came about as it is and got to be known like that. The God alone part, I my be unworth of it, but I did get right the first time, and even before, and even while I was christian I never mistook with God a bearded man. I don't like beards. So now may be we can get to the next bit.

The simple purpose is to get the truth. As simple as that. If a sect X can proof only from Quran deed Y, then I will inshaAllah practise Y in the same way as sect X.

imo there must be a first person(s) who got The Quran first, and imo we can find who this person is by studying only the verses of The Quran very carefully.
And I am sure the information is there in The Quran in front of our eyes, but we can't grasp it because we are not clean enough to see it.

Why not call him Muhammad? Even if it is by codename or nickname. Well, brother, I am eager ears if you have a better option. Please do not get me wrong, I am no narrow-minded traditionalist and I try to be rational and draw logical conclusions. In fact I am interested about mmkhans research, but I am not quick to run to conclusions.

Give example?  Well, the Quran is narrated as if there is a person between the Believers and God. Who is it if not a prophet? You have the whole Quran as your example brother.

Okay. I misunderstood your intent. I have a prejudice that many people are here to nullify everything about traditional islam :)

At a final note brother Bender, interpreting the Quran can be tedious and I understand if the name Muhammad may be inaccurate, but so far Muhammad is the best answer for me.  I do not glorify him or anything.

I find it a bit silly to give an example. What about most of the context of Quran. You can sure find it yourself. Maybe I will give an example and description when I have the opportunity.

So, please then, give a translation of 48.29


On the other hand, it is very logic if a messenger was to come whose name will be Ahmad, which means the most praiseworthy, that later on the fullfilment of 3isa's rediction be stressed by stating that indeed, the most preaisale is indeed praised, which is Muhammadun, one that was to be the most praisedworthy surpisingly turns out also to be praised.

So what is shocking about that and why so much mistery on the part of the "there is no messenger muhammad to come and give in plain words and without riddles what their notion is, because as yet I have not seen that they have given any explanation of anything that should clear anything at all. All we get is "that can't be.

No reason why that cannot be and no idea of what can be either. So we are left with a batallion of prophets whose ,essages are not guranteed and the one message which is guranteed, is forbidden to have a transmitter from God to the rest of the mortals, because it si a sin to speak of such a prophet. I find it too much of a joke. Not that I am shocked. I am not, I feel cheated, because of much ado about nothing and what looks like a big promise of some way the Qur'an was transmitted, but there is nothing, so according to that notion what we should believe, ignorant as we are, is that the Qur'an is there but forbidden to discuss or imagine how it came to be there. If that is not what is being said, then please be clearer, because I am starting to feel the whole thing as a practical joke. So people are lectured if they speak about Muhammad, but then they are asked to believe in what, in speontaneous generation? so it seems.

If those who put forward the ban Muhammad campaign cannot answer what they are asked, then I am out of this thread because it is a cheat.  I know that nobody is going to cry for that, for sure I am not, Huruf can leave any time she wants, but I want to say that: that nothing is being spoken clearly and all I have seen is a parade of offers which are not followed by any delivery.

I was not responding to your posts because you said, you are out of it, but now I found you still continuously using my name, so I would like to clarify on the part I have highlighted in your quote above.

Please feel free to believe in Muhammad or whatever you want to make him, I cannot question it. Because that is you who is doing so and you are only responsible for that. Please remove from your mind that I am forcing anyone to believe in what I believe, NO! I am not doing that. But I am sharing my knowledge that Allah gave me. So that,

- Some may benefit from it.
- Some may discuss it further and bring in some more facts and discoveries from alQuraan and get to its conclusions.

This was only my intention. But its seems that people think I am getting some million bucks for making others convince on what I said, unfortunately. :brickwall:

Peace mmkhan,

No need to take such a defensive stance brother. I am not disallowing you from having your opinion and I am sorry if I was sarcastic before. I am sure you care about people and I was slightly misusing your mood state.

Sorry that I was referring to you but it was because it was your main idea so I used you as reference. Well, since you obviously have been reading my posts you know my conversation with brother Bender. I thought you may had put me on ignore or something.

I am sure you were pressured earlier when you responded to me and others, I understand how frustrating it must be to be so determined about something and people do not believe you. If you are right about the non-Muhammad theory then try harder and people might embrace your ideas if they are true. Please do not believe that he is utterly important for me, I am truly God alone and that is not the reason I argued about him but only for the Truth itself.

And if Muhammad is actually a man then we must respect him like any other dead person. I am sure that there is a man who wrote down Quran and even if his name was not Muhammad we must show a little respect at least, not because he was prophet or messenger but for his status as a human being. Or the anonymous prophet as you would like to put it.

Hmm... I do not remember that I told you that I am out of it, but I may have lost my memory about it. Perhaps I was also under influence of emotions.

May we stay like brothers despite our differences.

first this is a statement, second the statement was there 1000 years ago and is still here at present time and will be in the future.
Does this Mohammed not die if it was a person? So if it dies then it can for sure not be the Mohammed of The Quran, because the Mohammed of 48:29 in The Quran is always in present time. Note also that it is written as MohammedUN, thus a not specified Mohammed.
it is written in the same way as "Allahu rabbu Al3alameena" only difference is that it is not Al-LahUN as Allah is always specified and present.
Anyways this is how Allah showed me.

Also I like to say that there is nothing to feel cheated about, we are just discussing.
And there is no ban Mohammed campain.
As I already told, I have no answers yet for the questions.
The only thing I know at the moment is that from my study and with what Allah showed me, Mohammed of 48:29 can never be a name of a person, probably it is something like a title.
That's all I know.
And I also do not agree with MmKhan that it was Musa.

Anyways lets try not to get in  :voodoo: mood  :) I think this is a interesting subject and at the end of the day we will all learn more inshaAllah.

Dear Bender,

In Arabic language, nearly all PERSONAL MASCULINE NOUNS end with ?THZAMMAH TANWIN?, which pronounces ?UN?. It is a rule of the language. This ending can change to other forms depending on the structure of the sentence, but the noun will still remain a noun. It does not change to anything else like where you guys out of ignorance think it is a ?CHARACTER?. See the verses below as examples.

BTW; the names in the verses below are all PROPER nouns.

26:106 إِذۡ قَالَ لَهُمۡ أَخُوهُمۡ نُوحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ
26:124  إِذۡ قَالَ لَهُمۡ أَخُوهُمۡ هُودٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ
26:142  إِذۡ قَالَ لَهُمۡ أَخُوهُمۡ صَـٰلِحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ
26:161  إِذۡ قَالَ لَهُمۡ أَخُوهُمۡ لُوطٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ
26:177  إِذۡ قَالَ لَهُمۡ شُعَيۡبٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ

There are many verses which provide proof. 3:144

Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.

Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing.

Salaam, Bender,

Thanks for your politeness saying that the discussion is heated up instead of saying that I was being too sharp or worse. I heated it up because I saw it going nowhere. I was trying to get the thing out with forceps, not even so I got it, but you at least answered what you could answer. Thank you. It was a deliberate but
not an illwilled of hostile heating. I appreciate brother mmkhan and you.

I remember in one of the threads that brother mmkhan said that the Arabic word "ism" does nto mean name. I think, after thinking it over myself, that that assumption might have something to do with the difficulty for him to say straight what he has in mind, if he knows it. "Ism" might not be a 100% equivalent of "name" in English but certainly in a big proportion it is equivalent. He opposed name to attribute if I don't remember wrong. Well, may be that opposition might be made in English but not necessarily in Arabic, and if we think of it, any name is named after attributing something to the named. Persons are named when they are born, but that is just a usage. Usually many things and persons through history have been named after the name they earned, not the name they were given at birth or inception.

I thank those of you who have cleared the question about the tanwin in names. I sort of had an idea that that did not make a name into a non-name, but as I did not recall axactly the rule, I did not say anything. In fact, again, it all comes from separating atributes from names. Al 3adil is a name of God, but, like names should be, it is not a void name, it is a name full of significance. So, seen from the point of view of the faithful, what is the reason for Muhammadun not being a name besides beeing an attribute since in Arabic, Quranic Arabic, both things go hand in hand? Anybody respoding to that denomination would be Muhammadun and could be named Mhammadun. Which Muhammadun? Obviously the Muhammadun at hand for the purpose that is being dealt with.

You say_

I have very great doubts on that and not because I think that it cannot be applied to anybody any time if she or he fulfills de conditions, but because the fact that it might include other people does most certainly not exclude the person then and there who was existant when it was said or revealed for the Qur'an. In fact it occurred to me long time ago, that the khatam an-nabiyin, if taken as last prophet, what it would mean would be that for those who believe in that prophet, that khatam, they would not be needing any other prophet, that is, they would have reached adult age as believers and faithful and would themselves emancipate and be for themselves and for their community their prophets, that is a community of universal prophethood. That is one way which I thought could be interpreted, which in itself is full of meaning. Obviously for those who did no benefit from the prophethood of Muhammadun, there might be other prophets, I do not know, but I see it as possible.

But then, even assuming that as a verified fact, what I do not get is why the need of keeping all the prophets previous to the transmitter of the Qur'an, and then do away with the transmitter fo the Qur'an as if it was a blot o something to be ashamed of. There is something very wrong there, unless a good explanation is given. So please if there is such explanation, once more, I request it for the purpose of understanding the whole thing and if there is something to it. If there was ever a prophet, then the khatam annabiyin certifies it, it would ridiculous that somebody who does not existe does any certifying.

So, Bender, thanks for your answer and let us see if brother mmkhan can and will explain further or not.

Brother if there is something which you can not comprehend it does not mean that I speak of ignorance.
Maybe I have have knowledge that has not reached you yet.
And even if I am wrong then it's not because of ignorance but because I am always in learning phase.
Allah never called Ibrahim ignorant when he searched for Him even when he was wrong. No Allah says Ibrahim was not of almushrikeen.

Anyways, maybe you can look again at one verse before every ayaat you mentioned.
I will give you the first one:
26:105  كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ الْمُرْسَلِينَ
As you can see Almurasleena is plural. How is that possible? So who are those " الْمُرْسَلِينَ " when we know that only Nuh was sent.

Same goes for every ayaat you mentioned, inshaAllah it will be more clear for you.

Furthermore I want to state that you can study The Quran only in 1 way and that is with the help of Allah.
Grammar books and other sources besides Allah will only confuse you.

According to the book, "A Reference Grammar of Modern Standard Arabic".
Muhammad is a proper arabic name, the nunation indicates the proper
name is derived from an adjective.  So to answer the question of the thread,
"Was Muhammed name of a Prophet?"  The answer would be yes.

Thanks mmkhan for this thread   :handshake:

You say_

per my current understanding, the closest definition for "ism" in The Quran is something like "identifier" not an attribute.
see for example 12:78
12:78 They said: "O Al3azeezu, he has an elderly father, so take one of us in his place. Indeed we see you as one of the good doers."
Obviously Al3azeezu is not an attribute of Yusuf, but that is how his brothers identified him.
The same goes for AlAsma AlHusna, they are not attributes of Allah but identifiers of Him. Like "He is Al3azeezu AlHakeemu".
Anyways this is how I understand it at the moment.

RED: yes that is entirely possible, but his proper name could also be Ahmed or Richard.

I have very great doubts on that and not because I think that it cannot be applied to anybody any time if she or he fulfills de conditions, but because the fact that it might include other people does most certainly not exclude the person then and there who was existant when it was said or revealed for the Qur'an.


No I am not excluding the person then  :nope:

But as far as I know The Quran never says that AlQuran was revealed and/or given for the first time to a man named Mohammed, this information did not came to us from The Quran but from sources other then The Quran.

Quote
In fact it occurred to me long time ago, that the khatam an-nabiyin, if taken as last prophet, what it would mean would be that for those who believe in that prophet, that khatam, they would not be needing any other prophet, that is, they would have reached adult age as believers and faithful and would themselves emancipate and be for themselves and for their community their prophets, that is a community of universal prophethood. That is one way which I thought could be interpreted, which in itself is full of meaning. Obviously for those who did no benefit from the prophethood of Muhammadun, there might be other prophets, I do not know, but I see it as possible.


Sure it is a possibility. I think we have to think out of our boxes to understand the ayaats of The Quran better. As long as we have preprogrammed information which is not Quran based then it is very hard to grasp the ayaats of The Quran.

Quote
But then, even assuming that as a verified fact, what I do not get is why the need of keeping all the prophets previous to the transmitter of the Qur'an, and then do away with the transmitter fo the Qur'an as if it was a blot o something to be ashamed of.

I understand that some might think this. But that is absolutely not true. The Mohammed mentioned in The Quran is nothing to be ashamed of  :nope:
But I can not proof from The Quran that he was  the transmitter of the Quran  :( And as long as no body can proof this I have every option open.
And 1 of the many options is that there was a man who's proper name was Mohammed and that he was the first person who got The Quran.

Quote
Furthermore I want to state that you can study The Quran only in 1 way and that is with the help of Allah.
Grammar books and other sources besides Allah will only confuse you.

2nd: Common sense dictates that, if a particular language is NOT my mother tongue, then for me to understand it and be able to render a correct and valid opinion regarding that language, is to first study and learn the rules and regulations governing the language.

3rd: Arabic language existed long before the revelation of The Qur?aan, and then Allaah, swt, decided to pick Muhammad, pbuh, as His Prophet messenger, giving The Qur?aan to him. Muhammad was an Arab, speaking Arabic. So, The Qur?ann MUST had been revealed in Arabic following its grammatical rules in order for Muhammad and his people to understand it. That is why 26:198,199 inform us that if The Qur?aan was sent down to NONE Arabs and read to them, they wouldn?t believe in it. Why? Because it was not in their tongue.

Quote
Anyways, maybe you can look again at one verse before every ayaat you mentioned.
I will give you the first one:
26:105  كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ الْمُرْسَلِينَ
As you can see Almurasleena is plural. How is that possible? So who are those " الْمُرْسَلِينَ " when we know that only Nuh was sent.

Same goes for every ayaat you mentioned, inshaAllah it will be more clear for you.

4th: What does this have to do with the subject of this tread?

I answer it anyway. Those people had rejected the messengers that had come to them BEFORE Noohh, Hood, Saalih, Loot, and Shu?ayb.

Hi,

Saying that Grammar books are there for confusion is stupidity. It is Allah who has constrained us to language and that is why other sources are necessary. Often when people say this:

" I want to state that you can study The Quran only in 1 way and that is with the help of Allah. " - it tends to be meaningless cop-outs. Everything happens because of the almighty. But when you are ill, you still head for the doctor.

As to the Mursileen being plural, then those are the Prophets before Noah.

Quran does prove [it is not 'proof'] that a person named Muhammad received the Quran. I am sorry to say, your whole basis is illogical. As a Sunni, I am thinking how blessed I am. About 1500 years history doesn't disappear like that. Your dilemma is evidence as to why the "Quran only" position is so illogical and leads to chaos.

I have given you two verse that are pretty explicit:


Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.

Hi,

Please learn basics of Arabic and have some humility to ask if unsure rather than dictate to people.

Ibrahim is name of Hebrew origin and not of Arabic. However the name is Arabicised.  For example the name Benjamin is Anglicised version of the Hebrew name Ben Yamin - which in Arabic is Binyameen.

In Arabic foreign names are classed as Ghayr Munsarrif [ Mamnu al-Sarf] - which means they do not have Tanween.

I will give you again  :handshake: not because I agree with you but because you say a lot of things which are not from The Quran and only if you read a couple of verses before and after 26:198,99 then you will come inshaAllah to new understandings.

I answer it anyway. Those people had rejected the messengers that had come to them BEFORE Noohh, Hood, Saalih, Loot, and Shu?ayb.

Brother, making a word in capitals and bold does not make it part of The Quran  :nope:
Maybe you wish there was a BEFORE but I am sorry.

Here is a verse were BEFORE is used.
22:42 وَإِن يُكَذِّبُوكَ فَقَدْ كَذَّبَتْ قَبْلَهُمْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ  وَعَادٌ وَثَمُودُ
Here is a verse were AFTER is used.
7:68 أَوَعَجِبْتُمْ أَن جَاءَكُمْ ذِكْرٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ عَلَىٰ رَجُلٍ مِّنكُمْ لِيُنذِرَكُمْ ۚ وَاذْكُرُوا إِذْ جَعَلَكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ مِن بَعْدِ قَوْمِ نُوحٍ  وَزَادَكُمْ فِي الْخَلْقِ بَسْطَةً ۖ فَاذْكُرُوا آلَاءَ اللَّـهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

in 26:105 it would be something like this: Kaththabat qablahum qawmu noohin almursaleena

Salaam,
Bender

Hi,

Saying that Grammar books are there for confusion is stupidity. It is Allah who has constrained us to language and that is why other sources are necessary. Often when people say this:

" I want to state that you can study The Quran only in 1 way and that is with the help of Allah. " - it tends to be meaningless cop-outs. Everything happens because of the almighty. But when you are ill, you still head for the doctor.

Hi,

Please learn basics of Arabic and have some humility to ask if unsure rather than dictate to people.

Ibrahim is name of Hebrew origin and not of Arabic. However the name is Arabicised.  For example the name Benjamin is Anglicised version of the Hebrew name Ben Yamin - which in Arabic is Binyameen.

In Arabic foreign names are classed as Ghayr Munsarrif [ Mamnu al-Sarf] - which means they do not have Tanween.

"Per my current knowledge I am 100% sure that Mohammed is not used as a name of a person in The Quran.
proof: translate the first 3 words of 48:29."

 

If the name Muhamad is not referring to a person:
 
48:29MUHAMMAD is God's Apostle; and those who are with him are firm and unyielding towards all deniers of the truth,  full of mercy towards one another. Thou canst see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking favour with God and goodly
acceptance: their marks are on their faces, traced by prostration.


how could he have prostrated with those with him?

33:40 [And know, O believers, that] Muhammad is not the father of any one of your men,50 but isGod's Apostle and the Seal of all Prophets.51 And God has indeed full knowledge of everything.

How could he be referred as father, not just human but male?

3:144 AND MUHAMMAD is only an apostle; all the [other] apostles have passed away before him: if, then, he dies or is slain, will you turn about on your heels?104 But he that turns about on his heels can in no wise harm God - whereas God will requite all who are grateful [to Him].

How could he have been slain or die, if not human?
 
Muhamad could be a title just like Israel was the title of Jacob, or the title Abraham, but whether it  is a title or name, it is the title/name given to the one who received the Qur'an from Gabriel. Also, if those names are to be considered titles, then people should be forbidden from using them as personal names, for they will never ever be equal to  those to whom those names/titles were given.

 Maybe the reason why mmkan and bender are so fiercely arguing about this issue is because they want to probe is a title that they can assign to themselves. Sorry Guys, maybe you can call yourselves prophets since you are professing the Qur'an, but I don't think anybody will like you calling yourselves Muhamaduns.

first this is a statement, second the statement was there 1000 years ago and is still here at present time and will be in the future.Does this Mohammed not die if it was a person? So if it dies then it can for sure not be the Mohammed of The Quran, because the Mohammed of 48:29 in The Quran is always in present time.

People use some common sense. the "is"could be time bound for the time when the prophet walked the earth and for the people who was around him. For example: if the phrase said  "Mohamed is the father of this child" and somebody reads it in front of you and your son, would then that mean that Muhamad is the father of your son. lest not be of the ignorant.

When a disagreement arises, one clarifies where one belongs. Shia, Sunni and etc all call themselves Muslims, but, when you add further identities it instant clarifies who you are and where you belong.

 "O humankind We [God] have created you male and female, and made you into communities and tribes, so that you may know one another. Surely the noblest amongst you in the sight of God is the most godfearing of you. God is All-knowing and All-Aware" (Quran 49:13).

Post by: huruf on May 24, 2013, 12:49:30 AM

This is partly a reply to Bender's post 170

Quote
per my current understanding, the closest definition for "ism" in The Quran is something like "identifier" not an attribute.
see for example 12:78
12:78 They said: "O Al3azeezu, he has an elderly father, so take one of us in his place. Indeed we see you as one of the good doers."
Obviously Al3azeezu is not an attribute of Yusuf, but that is how his brothers identified him.
The same goes for AlAsma AlHusna, they are not attributes of Allah but identifiers of Him. Like "He is Al3azeezu AlHakeemu".
Anyways this is how I understand it at the moment.

I think we are back to splitting hairs. Of course names are identifiers, but they are not numbers. If we identified people by numbers randomly attributed, we could keep to the "identifier" idea without any problem. But names identify not randomly, identify because somebody uses them for a reason. All prophets names in the Qur'an and even non prophet names have a reason. When you say that Al 3adil is an identifier, I agree, but it identifies because it is pointing at something which pertains to the named, it is not a mark without a meaning. So in fact a name is also a title in the Qur'an. We are "perverted" by our present usage of giving names which mean nothing, whereas through history were for a long time given with a meaning. They still are in many places and on many occasions, and those names that are earned, may be called nicknames, alias or whatever, they may not be legal names of a person but they are certainly names by Qur'anic usage. Such a name may be attrributed to more than one person, then those persons would be distinguished by some other addition if the person meant did not get idenfied clearly, like with X the younger or X the older, or things like that.

So really  this thing about Muhammad name or title, we may quietly say that it is both, so what? And, as I said in previous message some pages ago, if there is the prediction by 3isa ibnu Maryam that there will come a messenger whose name is Ahmad, which means the most praised, and then later on there is talk about a Muhammadun which means praised, is it really, really that preposterous to think that that passive participle, muhammadun, praised, is in fact a certification by the Qur'an, that that Ahmad prediction has been fulfilled, that the most praised has indeed been praised, that the prediction is a thing done?

Then there are allusions to the present to how what is said in the Qur'an is nto for the past (only I guess) but for all time, so what? That does not change a thing to the fact that the Qur'an was transmitted at a certain point in history, as to when exactly there are different opinions, but for us certainly in the past rather old past. So now we are all, or we should all strive to be Muhammaduun, fine, so in what that does change a thing to a past Muhammadun? And what is incoherent or surprising to having a praised messenger as khatam annabiyin? does that not stand as a praise to all prophets, as a praise to prophecy, as a praise to the unbreakable flow from God to humanity. Prophecy is living it is not dead, The praised one made it universal under his seal, God made it so. We are all under that seal. All past prophets, all people who received prophecy, in fact all people, all we have to do is to accept it.

This Muhammadun, as far as I am concerned not only does not do away with a Muhammadun person but in fact makes a perfect circle with all creation, because all creation is praised and everybody is praised for as long as we acknowledge that we spring from the divinity, that all we are is a flow from the divinity, prophecy is that, the certification that Divinity is always flowing to us and back, or not? the conscience of being a projection of the divinity, of the divine conscience and will, and as a divine deed wothy of praise because we are not by ourselves, but by the divine will.

I may be wrong, but I perceive in some people, not you Bender, a certain guilty selfconsciousness concerning al Rasul that transmitted the Qur'an, as if he was helplessly tainted by polygamy, cruelty, all the sins that have been piled on him by enemies and "friends" alike.

We should do away with that. Those are mental ghosts, noise. What remains is the khatam and the string of Allah to all of us, which we should not let go of. The khatam entails also a promise from our God, and this "our" is not as opposed to yours or their, but a closer feeling of God, who is not a stranger, but our intimate God. 

This khatam and Muhhamadun thing is greater than our petty personal appreciations of this or that depiction of a man. It is a declaration of essence, of divine essence to humans. We are not tied to minute dos or don'ts and splitting hairs. We are free, free to feel, to think, to love, fee not to put limits to our divine aspirations.

Yes, sorry , this was a long sermon. The catholic church does not know what it lost when it didn't allow women to be priests. I would have made may be not the best, but the longest sermonist around. My excuses.

Salaam

Post by: Scribbler on May 24, 2013, 01:10:36 AM
Peace be with you, Bender.



Brother, it is seems like you haven't looked closely into some verses of the Quran which are essential for the discussion of the points that you have raised. The truth is right there, we just need to see clearly. I'll answer your points in three steps, God willing, it should now be clear to you.




STEP 1:



Who is a messenger? A messenger is a person who is entrusted with a message, a message bearer. This definition is sanctioned in the Quran.


So the king said: "Bring him to me." But when the messenger (Arabic: rasulu) came to him, (Joseph) said: "Go back to thy lord, and ask
him, 'What is the state of mind of the ladies who cut their hands'? For my Lord is certainly well aware of their snare." (12:50)


You can see that the message bearer who was sent to the prison to summon Prophet Joseph (pbuh) is referred to as a "Rasul" (messenger).



STEP 2:



Now take a look at the following verse.


O Messengers! (Arabic: rusulu - plural). Eat of the good things and do right. Indeed, I am aware of what ye do (23:51)


You can see that God is saying "messengers - plural", and not "messenger - singular".


This verse is directed to whom?

The messengers!


To whom is God directly talking/referring in this verse?

The messengers!



If you read this verse in context with its following verse, it becomes clear that this verse was directed at the Prophet's community.


And indeed this brotherhood/community (Arabic: ummatukum) of yours is a single brotherhood, and I am your Lord, therefore fear Me (23:52)



Therefore, those that aided the Prophet in spreading the message were also being referred to as "messengers". It is clear, brother. God wouldn't say "messengers - plural" instead of "messenger - singular" if this verse was only directed to one person. God never makes any mistake. So there is NO WAY you can deny this.



STEP 3:



You can now see the same thing, as you probably have already, with respect to Prophet Noah (pbuh) and his supporters of bearing the message, who also by God have been referred to as "messengers - plural".


The people of Noah rejected the messengers. (26:105)



This can be further supported with verse - 25:37



And the people of Noah, when they rejected the messengers, We drowned them and We made them as a Sign for mankind and We have prepared
for (all) wrong-doers a grievous Penalty (25:37)




But you were right on one thing. People who say that the plurality of messenger denotes messengers BEFORE Prophet Noah (pbuh), are completely wrong in their reasoning. Their assertion sounds nonsensical as the verses clearly talk about people who were present during the time of Prophet Noah (pbuh) when they rejected him.



This is the same case with the rest of the messengers of the past:


The Ad (people) rejected the messengers (26:123)


The Thamud (people) rejected the messengers (26:141)


The people of Lut rejected the messengers (26:160)


The Companions of the Wood rejected the messengers (26:176)




Dear Bender, I have provided you evidence directly from the Quran. The signs of Allah are clear and lucid, at least for me, alhamdoulillah, I see no ambiguity and no abstrusity.

Peace be with you, Bender.



Brother, it is seems like you haven't looked closely into some verses of the Quran which are essential for the discussion of the points that you have raised. The truth is right there, we just need to see clearly. I'll answer your points in three steps, God willing, it should now be clear to you.




STEP 1:



Who is a messenger? A messenger is a person who is entrusted with a message, a message bearer. This definition is sanctioned in the Quran.


So the king said: "Bring him to me." But when the messenger (Arabic: rasulu) came to him, (Joseph) said: "Go back to thy lord, and ask
him, 'What is the state of mind of the ladies who cut their hands'? For my Lord is certainly well aware of their snare." (12:50)


You can see that the message bearer who was sent to the prison to summon Prophet Joseph (pbuh) is referred to as a "Rasul" (messenger).



STEP 2:



Now take a look at the following verse.


O Messengers! (Arabic: rusulu - plural). Eat of the good things and do right. Indeed, I am aware of what ye do (23:51)


You can see that God is saying "messengers - plural", and not "messenger - singular".


This verse is directed to whom?

The messengers!


To whom is God directly talking/referring in this verse?

The messengers!



If you read this verse in context with its following verse, it becomes clear that this verse was directed at the Prophet's community.


And indeed this brotherhood/community (Arabic: ummatukum) of yours is a single brotherhood, and I am your Lord, therefore fear Me (23:52)



Therefore, those that aided the Prophet in spreading the message were also being referred to as "messengers". It is clear, brother. God wouldn't say "messengers - plural" instead of "messenger - singular" if this verse was only directed to one person. God never makes any mistake. So there is NO WAY you can deny this.



STEP 3:



You can now see the same thing, as you probably have already, with respect to Prophet Noah (pbuh) and his supporters of bearing the message, who also by God have been referred to as "messengers - plural".


The people of Noah rejected the messengers. (26:105)



This can be further supported with verse - 25:37



And the people of Noah, when they rejected the messengers, We drowned them and We made them as a Sign for mankind and We have prepared
for (all) wrong-doers a grievous Penalty (25:37)




But you were right on one thing. People who say that the plurality of messenger denotes messengers BEFORE Prophet Noah (pbuh), are completely wrong in their reasoning. Their assertion sounds nonsensical as the verses clearly talk about people who were present during the time of Prophet Noah (pbuh) when they rejected him.



This is the same case with the rest of the messengers of the past:


The Ad (people) rejected the messengers (26:123)


The Thamud (people) rejected the messengers (26:141)


The people of Lut rejected the messengers (26:160)


The Companions of the Wood rejected the messengers (26:176)




Dear Bender, I have provided you evidence directly from the Quran. The signs of Allah are clear and lucid, at least for me, alhamdoulillah, I see no ambiguity and no abstrusity. With utmost respect, even now if you don't get that the names (Nooh, Hud, Loot, Shuaib, Muhammad etc.) are all proper nouns, then I really don't have anything else to say anymore.

Salam,

That is why I am correcting him. Reason for asking his age is that I find his reasoning to be quite poor and attitude somewhat immature.

"ONLY thing I said is that Mohammed in The Quran is not a proper name of a person."


Hello again Bender,

And your evidence? It has been rather conclusively proven - it IS a name and not a title.
When a disagreement arises, one clarifies where one belongs. Shia, Sunni and etc all call themselves Muslims, but, when you add further identities it instant clarifies who you are and where you belong.

 "O humankind We [God] have created you male and female, and made you into communities and tribes, so that you may know one another. Surely the noblest amongst you in the sight of God is the most godfearing of you. God is All-knowing and All-Aware" (Quran 49:13).



 
Yes I did.

Please read reply #174
Dear one :-),

Often things are implied and not always stated. Else discourse would be infinitive. The above is a simple enough logic. I think I've said enough on it.

Salaamun alayka,

whatever makes you happy  :handshake:

Bender

People use some common sense. the "is"could be time bound for the time when the prophet walked the earth and for the people who was around him. For example: if the phrase said  "Mohamed is the father of this child" and somebody reads it in front of you and your son, would then that mean that Muhamad is the father of your son. lest not be of the ignorant.

Salaamun alayka,

RED: Can you please give me an example from The Quran, thx.

BLUE: It must be: "Mohammed is the father of YOUR child" if it is general and "Mohammed is the father of BENDER's child"  if it was only for Benders. And if it was specific for me then I do not think Allah will reveal something like that in a book for everyone but would only reveal it to me.

GREEN: Allah shall inform us about our disputes.

Post by: Bender on May 28, 2013, 05:34:48 AM
This is partly a reply to Bender's post 170

I think we are back to splitting hairs. Of course names are identifiers, but they are not numbers. If we identified people by numbers randomly attributed, we could keep to the "identifier" idea without any problem. But names identify not randomly, identify because somebody uses them for a reason. All prophets names in the Qur'an and even non prophet names have a reason. When you say that Al 3adil is an identifier, I agree, but it identifies because it is pointing at something which pertains to the named, it is not a mark without a meaning. So in fact a name is also a title in the Qur'an. We are "perverted" by our present usage of giving names which mean nothing, whereas through history were for a long time given with a meaning. They still are in many places and on many occasions, and those names that are earned, may be called nicknames, alias or whatever, they may not be legal names of a person but they are certainly names by Qur'anic usage. Such a name may be attrributed to more than one person, then those persons would be distinguished by some other addition if the person meant did not get idenfied clearly, like with X the younger or X the older, or things like that.

Salaamun alayki,

I totally agree with you :)

Quote
So really  this thing about Muhammad name or title, we may quietly say that it is both, so what?

For you and for me it's so what, but for most people its close to blasphemy.
Besides this it has also consequences in how one understands The Quran.
Anyways in The Quran it is never used as proper name.

Quote
And, as I said in previous message some pages ago, if there is the prediction by 3isa ibnu Maryam that there will come a messenger whose name is Ahmad, which means the most praised, and then later on there is talk about a Muhammadun which means praised, is it really, really that preposterous to think that that passive participle, muhammadun, praised, is in fact a certification by the Qur'an, that that Ahmad prediction has been fulfilled, that the most praised has indeed been praised, that the prediction is a thing done?


This is entirely possible.

Forgive me but I like splitting hairs and going of-topic  ;)
It was not a prediction

Quote
Then there are allusions to the present to how what is said in the Qur'an is nto for the past (only I guess) but for all time, so what?

I do not agree, I think this is not so what  :nope: I think this has major consequences  :yes


Quote
That does not change a thing to the fact that the Qur'an was transmitted at a certain point in history, as to when exactly there are different opinions, but for us certainly in the past rather old past. So now we are all, or we should all strive to be Muhammaduun, fine, so in what that does change a thing to a past Muhammadun?
nothing, but for now it changes a lot.


Quote
And what is incoherent or surprising to having a praised messenger as khatam annabiyin? does that not stand as a praise to all prophets, as a praise to prophecy, as a praise to the unbreakable flow from God to humanity. Prophecy is living it is not dead, The praised one made it universal under his seal, God made it so. We are all under that seal. All past prophets, all people who received prophecy, in fact all people, all we have to do is to accept it.

This Muhammadun, as far as I am concerned not only does not do away with a Muhammadun person but in fact makes a perfect circle with all creation, because all creation is praised and everybody is praised for as long as we acknowledge that we spring from the divinity, that all we are is a flow from the divinity, prophecy is that, the certification that Divinity is always flowing to us and back, or not? the conscience of being a projection of the divinity, of the divine conscience and will, and as a divine deed wothy of praise because we are not by ourselves, but by the divine will.

I may be wrong, but I perceive in some people, not you Bender, a certain guilty selfconsciousness concerning al Rasul that transmitted the Qur'an, as if he was helplessly tainted by polygamy, cruelty, all the sins that have been piled on him by enemies and "friends" alike.

We should do away with that. Those are mental ghosts, noise. What remains is the khatam and the string of Allah to all of us, which we should not let go of. The khatam entails also a promise from our God, and this "our" is not as opposed to yours or their, but a closer feeling of God, who is not a stranger, but our intimate God. 

This khatam and Muhhamadun thing is greater than our petty personal appreciations of this or that depiction of a man. It is a declaration of essence, of divine essence to humans. We are not tied to minute dos or don'ts and splitting hairs. We are free, free to feel, to think, to love, fee not to put limits to our divine aspirations.

Yes, sorry , this was a long sermon. The catholic church does not know what it lost when it didn't allow women to be priests. I would have made may be not the best, but the longest sermonist around. My excuses.

Salaam

I understand now why they didn't allow women to be priests  ;D

I agree with most what you said, nice post.

Bender

Is 5:6 also only for the prophet's community? If not, then please show me how to distinguish such verses.

Quote
Therefore, those that aided the Prophet in spreading the message were also being referred to as "messengers". It is clear, brother. God wouldn't say "messengers - plural" instead of "messenger - singular" if this verse was only directed to one person. God never makes any mistake. So there is NO WAY you can deny this.

I never deny an ayaat of The Quran  :nope:
That verse indeed is directed to the messengers (PLURAL) BUT there is no restriction in time  :nope: That verse is in present  :yes
Allah never makes mistakes and He did not forget any words.

Besides that, do you know that what you said here is not clear at all for 99% of the so called muslim world. If you tell them there were human messengers with Mohammed they would chase you down, because it goes against everything they believe in. InshaAllah you will understand why I mention this.

This was also for a long time my understanding. Please compare 26:105-106 with 36:13-14.
I am almost sure that you know that in all the pasages in The Quran about Nuh, he was always the only one.
Thus you will never find "Nuh and the other messengers said ..."
So how come the plural is used.
InshaAllah if you understand verses like  7:11 and 7:22-24 then verses like 26:105-106 and 25:37 and many more verses will  be more clear.

But you were right on one thing. People who say that the plurality of messenger denotes messengers BEFORE Prophet Noah (pbuh), are completely wrong in their reasoning.

Rethinking word مُحَمَّدٌ :

1) the word muhammadun is a noun

2) the word muhammadun is a male plurar world

3) The tanwin an in un is depending of the verse context

4) مُحَمَّدٌ is a passive word, this mean this word is a word who is become a target to giving a task or something

Similiarity cases occured in:

وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ       
إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ   
وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ
   

Clear verse that proof Muhammad is a name:

33:40 Mohammad(un) is not the father of any of your men, but he is the messenger of God and the seal of the prophets. And God is fully aware of all things.

Maybe my explanation sound strange

Salam all,

Quote
But the signs Allah showed me are also very clear to me and from what He showed me I know for sure that Mohammed is not a proper name.

If my tone becomes harsher, I apologize in advance. But I am losing patience with statements of Bender. Look at the above comment. Such statements cannot be taken seriously at all. What signs? So, for over thousand years "Muhammad" - has been a name - and now say so of someone are we expected to accept it. Bender has had his chance to give evidence. Failing that, above is just an excuse and a poor one. Personal "signs" cannot be taken with seriousness where the Quran is concerned.

As a Sunni, this kind hogwash and easy acceptance of it really portrays a negative image of "Quran-only". You claim to follow Quran only - yet - repeatedly I find evidence on this board people tend to believe what they want to believe and call it "Allah's signs". There is absolutely no evidence that the word Muhammad is a title. There has been no other person ever claiming to be of this title. Just because someone has thought it up in their mind and are obstinately sticking to it - should these "thoughts" be given an airing in public and have any credence? No. Then everyone will make up whatever their heart wishes.

You reject "Hadith" on the basis of it "weakness" - yet - we Sunni's strongly reject all such interpretations. Here is one very clear reason why Sunnism has an easy and crucial advantage over "Quran only":

Besides over 1,500 years - it is development of Sunni thought and it bounding into coherent law. We have pretty clear principles that have developed over time as to how "law" can be derived. Before rejecting - it would be nice if people knew exactly what they were rejecting. But I seriously doubt 1 person has studied say - Usuls of Sunni thought. 

I think people will find the following book very useful:

"Language and the interpretation of Islamic law" by Dr. Sukrija Husejn Ramic.

It is available freely - as Phd Thesis - if Phd theses are available free in your country. In England - it is available from the British library website.

The book doesn't teach you Hadith. It is about how law from source - whether Quran or Hadith - is derived from language.

Peace The_Chimp,

There are those who take one step too many in the interpretation of Quran. But you should know that not everyone around here believe in the threads and the statements put forth nor support them.

Apart from that, the only laws you need to know can be found relatively easily in the Quran, no other hadith required. God's religion does not have an excessive amount of laws and restrictions, it is a pretty easy religion unless you follow a lot of man-made inventions.

In fact it is so easy that you could follow only the Bible and be a muslim as long as you follow the underlying Message to worship God alone, believe in the Last Day while being a good person.

There is a reason why God says that people from the Nazarenes and Jews can make it to Heaven too. The very reason is that all are islam (as long as unitarian Christian or other non-idolatrous believers).

I have studied as much as necessary of sunni thought. I study sahih hadith at the moment and there is not much to discover really.

Many people around here came from sunnism and they know what it is about. And most have been wise enough to leave the sect.

Personally, I see little reason in not rejecting hadith. Why would God add extra rules besides the main revelation? Did He "forget" to add them in the Book?

God said: "We did not leave anything out of this book!". Do you claim that God is a liar?

Are you among the Sunni muslims who also do not believe the Quran is preserved?

You may be talking about that it is Muhammad's "Sunnah" that is in hadith. But why follow his sunnah when he followed God's sunnah? Is it not better to live the kind of life God expects out of us in the Quran? Quran is pretty clear on what God likes and dislikes. And I do not want to be a stereotype, do you think God likes that?

Simply following the commands and inspiration from Quran and thus obeying God makes me reject hadith. Would I not then I would not be a Believer.

"Perfectly detailed"

"Easy to remember, want to learn?"

"In what other hadith do they believe?"

Please do not make a joke out of my Master when he says the Quran is sufficient. God does not like it. The Book is my Guide and I am fine with it. The Quran is God's exact wordings where no other book has been, what is better to follow if not God's own choice of words?

And hadith is so unreliable it is barely usable for anything except a good laugh for the amusing things one can read in it. Come on, an average blessed man can write books with better guidelines.

Back to what you wrote, I have no reason to not believe Muhammad was not a Messenger of God. I think most of those who keep coming up with these conspiracy theories are just falling victim to wishful thinking in attempts to nullify the practices of traditional islam completely. I do not believe that everything traditional muslims do and believe is wrong, I am not that arrogant, self-proclaimed. Some people are removing prayers from the map based on conjecture and I think that is rushing to naive conclusions.

You are right, Quran alone may not keep going strong, at least not in the favor of God, if people keep abrogate verses from Quran by crazy interpretations of it. The no prayer approach does not even seem have any support for it as it does not suit the context. And people are coming up with conjecture about fasting while the verses are pretty clear. So in some of your initial criticism you are right, and therefore I agree that this approach to Quran has a negative image, but that is not the fault of the approach bit rather in the minds of people.

Remember, I did not become a Quran only to make the religion Westernized or more slack but rather purify it. I still do regular prayers, fast, pay charity and follow every other guideline within Quran and I will continue to do so.

And hey, do not come with questions such as "Where do you find information on salat in Quran?" because I just frown and make some silly gesture. If you actually study sahih bukhari you will know why. And Quran is pretty clear on what to give to charity too, so do not come about with common silly rhetoric.

The Quran suffices me.

And please I did not mean to insult your belief system. I understand that my stand is pretty certain, but I accept other belief systems (deens). Please go ahead and call me kufr because it is correct in your deen, but then think twice on why you call me that.

Kufr for believing in God alone and following His revelation, is that not a joke?

Had I been of the same caliber, all of that deen of Sunni would be kufr, even mushrik, but I refrain from such statements out of courtesy. In my faith we do not aggress against others and only fight in self defense. And we discuss in the friendliest possible manner. Peace.

And finally, sorry for bringing this all into the inappropriate thread.

God bless you

Salam all,

If my tone becomes harsher, I apologize in advance. But I am losing patience with statements of Bender. Look at the above comment. Such statements cannot be taken seriously at all. What signs? So, for over thousand years "Muhammad" - has been a name - and now say so of someone are we expected to accept it. Bender has had his chance to give evidence. Failing that, above is just an excuse and a poor one. Personal "signs" cannot be taken with seriousness where the Quran is concerned.

As a Sunni, this kind hogwash and easy acceptance of it really portrays a negative image of "Quran-only". You claim to follow Quran only - yet - repeatedly I find evidence on this board people tend to believe what they want to believe and call it "Allah's signs". There is absolutely no evidence that the word Muhammad is a title. There has been no other person ever claiming to be of this title. Just because someone has thought it up in their mind and are obstinately sticking to it - should these "thoughts" be given an airing in public and have any credence? No. Then everyone will make up whatever their heart wishes.

You reject "Hadith" on the basis of it "weakness" - yet - we Sunni's strongly reject all such interpretations. Here is one very clear reason why Sunnism has an easy and crucial advantage over "Quran only":

Besides over 1,500 years - it is development of Sunni thought and it bounding into coherent law. We have pretty clear principles that have developed over time as to how "law" can be derived. Before rejecting - it would be nice if people knew exactly what they were rejecting. But I seriously doubt 1 person has studied say - Usuls of Sunni thought. 

I think people will find the following book very useful:

"Language and the interpretation of Islamic law" by Dr. Sukrija Husejn Ramic.

It is available freely - as Phd Thesis - if Phd theses are available free in your country. In England - it is available from the British library website.

The book doesn't teach you Hadith. It is about how law from source - whether Quran or Hadith - is derived from language.

Salaamun alayka,

No I did not find your tone to be harsh.

About signs, I will give you again the sign Allah showed me, as He is showing it to every one who wants to accept His ayaats as they are.
مُّحَمَّدٌ رَّسُولُ اللَّـهِ  "
If you can't read Arabic then there are in here a lot of people who can translate it for you or maybe you know yourself some expert in Arabic language.
Now in what time is this sign written and how it is written?
With "how" I mean, is it telling a story or is it a command or is it statement or maybe something else.
If you can not accept the ayaats of Allah as they are then please don't blame me for your aversion against them.

Same goes for 26:105, if you can't accept it as it is, then I am afraid you have trouble accepting the ayaats of Allah as they are  :&

Peace Bender,

Not particularly this topic although it is highly controversial a theory. Sounds very far fetched that people for over 1400 years been roaming the Earth falsely believing their prophet was named Muhammad while he was not.

Although, hadith mainly refers to him as Allah's apostle and not by his name most of the time.

Well, not matter if your reasoning would be true or not it is still viable to refer to him as Muhammad, if but because it is his title as you claim. Just remember many names in the middle-east have another meaning than simply a name, for example, both Hassan and Hussein have other uses as words, so with your reasoning these people cannot be real persons?

I am sure the prophet of Quran is named in the scripture. Maybe his name was Ahmad and changed to Muhammad like Ibrahim was only called Ibram before messengership.

You tend to get it wrong though with my and other's tendency to want to stick with the name or nickname Muhammad, that it is due to remnants of idolatry and we want to stubbornly defend this posture until the end. I could not care less about the name of the prophet of Quran, but it is natural that one uses a name to refer to something if but as a codename.  We, humans, tend to give names to all sorts of things for easier reference and "prophet of Quran" is an awkward solution.

Give me the true name of the prophet and I will gladly change my usage. You said earlier that the true name might be right in front of our eyes so keep looking and later try to convince me about your discovery. Until then I will use Muhammad if not because this is the way God refers to him (and as you seem to claim, other apostles).

Philosophies are always appreciated, brother Bender, but until your theory gains foothold and other evidential backup it is still too controversial to believe. It is like a conspiracy theory. Many people believe you just do everything to nullify the religion of traditional muslims, just like the people around here who cut in the practices of praying, fasting and the likes. I am sure this may not be your intent but you are wary that the Quran is 1400 years old and not correctly understood like the ants of the valley that brother noshirk solved the riddle and meant something else.

Keep looking and I am open to further philosophies, but until then Muhammad is Muhammad.

God bless you

So why not lift the veil of the mystery and just give a clear simple explanation yourself:

Just give your translation of of that aya, say exactly what muhammad(un) means in each of the ayas in which it appears, your translation of those ayas. So may be we will know what eah is talkign about, because this thread in a way looks like we are trying to hold water between our fingers and of course, we don't catch it.

Why learning how law was derived from language for people of other times, when you can learn how to derive laws for our time in "The Principles of STATE AND GOVERNMENT IN ISLAM  by Muhammad Assad".

Salam brother,

Try not to answer for the sake of answering. I don't really think you know what you are talking about.

The book I mentioned simply shows how law/value is derived from text, in other words how language can be interpreted. These are principles - irrespective of time.

Muhammad Assad's book is about governance, a totally different subject.

Thank you.

I know Classical Arabic very well. Although a non-Native, I have studied to Masters level.

As to this:

"Now in what time is this sign written and how it is written?
With "how" I mean, is it telling a story or is it a command or is it statement or maybe something else.
If you can not accept the ayaats of Allah as they are then please don't blame me for your aversion against them."

I find it to be meaningless. What "sign" are you talking about?

That is beginning of verse verse 48:29. All it says is Muhammad is Messenger of Allah. There is ABSOLUTELY no indication that the word Muhammad is a title of some kind.

"If you can not accept the ayaats of Allah as they are then please don't blame me for your aversion against them."

So which verse am I not taking as it is? Please do not make petty accusations! In conclusion, you have no evidence for your "signs" and that is very clear. And you have not been able to present any.

As for the verse 26:105 that is simple and very clear

"The people of Noah denied the messengers"

Noah was the ONLY messenger sent to his people. A messenger point not only to Allah but to the messengers sent before him. Hence, his people denied him and those before him.

This is evidenced in the next verse:

"When their brother Noah said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?"

You will not find a verse where any more messengers are mentioned addressing tribes OTHER THAN Noah. What does that tell you? Noah was the only messenger sent to his people

Might I be so bold to suggest, it is you that lacks expertise in Arabic.

As per 2:67 BaqaratAN was the ONLY cow in buffaloes?



4:163 اِنَّاۤ اَوۡحَیۡنَاۤ اِلَیۡکَ کَمَاۤ اَوۡحَیۡنَاۤ اِلٰی نُوۡحٍ وَّ النَّبِیّٖنَ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِہٖ ۚ وَ اَوۡحَیۡنَاۤ اِلٰۤی اِبۡرٰہِیۡمَ وَ اِسۡمٰعِیۡلَ وَ اِسۡحٰقَ وَ یَعۡقُوۡبَ وَ الۡاَسۡبَاطِ وَ عِیۡسٰی وَ اَیُّوۡبَ وَ یُوۡنُسَ وَ ہٰرُوۡنَ وَ سُلَیۡمٰنَ ۚ وَ اٰتَیۡنَا دَاوٗدَ زَبُوۡرًا

26:106 اِذۡ قَالَ لَہُمۡ اَخُوۡہُمۡ نُوۡحٌ اَلَا تَتَّقُوۡنَ
2:68 قَالُوا ادۡعُ لَنَا رَبَّکَ یُبَیِّنۡ لَّنَا مَا ہِیَ ؕ قَالَ اِنَّہٗ یَقُوۡلُ اِنَّہَا بَقَرَۃٌ لَّا فَارِضٌ وَّ لَا بِکۡرٌ ؕ عَوَانٌۢ بَیۡنَ ذٰلِکَ ؕ فَافۡعَلُوۡا مَا تُؤۡمَرُوۡنَ

And as per 2:68, BaqaratUN was ONLY cow in buffaloes.

So We inspired (fa-awhayna) to him, "Construct the ship under Our observation, and Our inspiration, and when Our command comes and the oven overflows, put into the ship from each [creature] two mates and your family, except those for whom the decree [of destruction] has proceeded. And do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are to be drowned. (23:27)

And when you have boarded the ship, you and those with you, then say, 'Praise to Allah who has saved us form the wrongdoing people.' (23:28)

And say, 'My Lord, let me land at a blessed landing place (munzalan), and You are the best to accommodate [us].' " (23:29)

Surely in that are ayats, and surely We put to the test. (23:30)

Then, after them, We brought forth another generation; (23:31)

And We sent (fa-arsalna) among them a messenger from themselves, [saying], "Serve Allah ; you have no deity other than Him; then will you not fear Him?" (23:32)

Salaam,

Here is a translation for all four aayaat using words MuhammadUN and MuhammadIN inshaAllah with the permission of my Lord, Allah. Translation is copied from Sahih International [with necessary changes]. Whatever I am going write down is from my personal understanding, please seek help theCreator, Allah to guide to the truth.

3:144 وَ مَا مُحَمَّدٌ اِلَّا رَسُوۡلٌ ۚ قَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِنۡ قَبۡلِہِ الرُّسُلُ ؕ اَفَا۠ئِنۡ مَّاتَ اَوۡ قُتِلَ انۡقَلَبۡتُمۡ عَلٰۤی اَعۡقَابِکُمۡ ؕ وَ مَنۡ یَّنۡقَلِبۡ عَلٰی عَقِبَیۡہِ فَلَنۡ یَّضُرَّ اللّٰہَ شَیۡئًا ؕ وَ سَیَجۡزِی اللّٰہُ الشّٰکِرِیۡنَ
3:144 Muhammad is not but a messenger. Messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.

My personal understanding about 3:144
Because of use of MuhammadUN [with tanween], it is not referring to a name of any person as you might have seen in my previous post. To understand the usage of tanween better, please take a look at the following aayaat:



HudAN - 2:2  |  marazAN - 2:10  |  naarAN - 2:17  |  firaashAN, binaaAN, maaAN - 2:22  |  yawmAN, shaiyAN - 2:48 
laiylatAN - 2:51  |  raghadAN, sujjadAN - 2:58  |  QawlAN, rijzAN - 2:59  |  a3iynAN - 2:60  |  misrAN - 2:61  |  qiradatAN - 2:65

JannaatIN, thamaratIN - 2:25  |  samaawaatIN - 2:29  |   kafirIN - 2:41  |  nafsIN - 2:48  |  unaasIN - 2:60  |  saalihAN* - 2:62
ta3amIN, waahidIN, ghazabIN - 2:61  |  quwwatIN - 2:63

GhishaawatUN, a3zaabUN - 2:7  |  thummUN, bukmUN, u3myUN - 2:18  |  muheetUN - 2:19  |  QadeerUN - 2:20  |  a3dlUN - 2:48
balaaaUN, a3zeemUN - 2:49  |  KhairUN - 2:54  |  khaufUN - 2:62  |  faaridhUN, bikrUN, faaqiu3UN - 2:69



These words are taken just from let then 70 aayaat of sura baqarata, you may find thousands of examples in alQuraan, inshaAllah.

Now back to 3:144, it has to be translated as
And there is no praised one except the messenger. Indeed messengers have passed before* him. So, if he die or be killed, would YOU turn back on your heels? And whoever turns back on his heels will never does any harm to Allah. And Allah will reward those who are grateful.

Questions from 3:144.
- If he die or be killed would YOU turn back on your heels? How will YOU turn back on heels, when a messenger die 1400 years ago? Inqalabtum is not a past tense, but it has to be used in present and future. How?
- And whoso ever turns back on his heels will never does any harm to Allah. This part of aayat is also not in past tense. Then how do you understand this?



33:40 مَا کَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ اَبَاۤ اَحَدٍ مِّنۡ رِّجَالِکُمۡ وَ لٰکِنۡ رَّسُوۡلَ اللّٰہِ وَ خَاتَمَ النَّبِیّٖنَ ؕ وَ کَانَ اللّٰہُ بِکُلِّ شَیۡءٍ عَلِیۡمًا
33:40 Muhammad is not the father of one of your men, but the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing.

As per my personal understanding of 33:40, it has to be translated as:
Did not become a praised one to be a father of YOUR men, but being a messenger of Allah and having a stamp of prophets. And ever is Allah, of all things, Knowing.

To understand the meaning of khatama, please get back to my previous messages in this thread. And look at a word taba3a as seal in 16:108. To understand initial part of 33:40, please check 16:58 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=16&verse=58) and 16:59 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=16&verse=59).

16:58 وَ اِذَا بُشِّرَ اَحَدُہُمۡ بِالۡاُنۡثٰی ظَلَّ وَجۡہُہٗ مُسۡوَدًّا وَّ ہُوَ کَظِیۡمٌ
16:58 And when one of them is informed of a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief.

16:59 یَتَوَارٰی مِنَ الۡقَوۡمِ مِنۡ سُوۡٓءِ مَا بُشِّرَ بِہٖ ؕ اَیُمۡسِکُہٗ عَلٰی ہُوۡنٍ اَمۡ یَدُسُّہٗ فِی التُّرَابِ ؕ اَلَا سَآءَ مَا یَحۡکُمُوۡنَ
16:59 He hides himself from the people because of the ill of which he has been informed. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground? Unquestionably, evil is what they decide.

Questions about 33:40
- How could be Muhammad of 1400 years back be a father of YOUR men?
- If he was last of the prophets, then how there are still prophets who are guiding people as per 5:44?



47:2 وَ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَ اٰمَنُوۡا بِمَا نُزِّلَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ ہُوَ الۡحَقُّ مِنۡ رَّبِّہِمۡ ۙ کَفَّرَ عَنۡہُمۡ سَیِّاٰتِہِمۡ وَ اَصۡلَحَ بَالَہُمۡ
47:2 And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad - and it is the truth from their Lord - He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition.

As per my personal understanding of 47:2, it has to be translated as:
And those who believe and do rectified deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon any praised one and that is the truth from their Lord. He will hide from them their misdeeds and rectify their condition.

Nuzzila is used in 47:2, which is not for past, but it is used for present and future, please take a look at 25:25 for exact word.



48:29 مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ ؕ وَ الَّذِیۡنَ مَعَہٗۤ اَشِدَّآءُ عَلَی الۡکُفَّارِ رُحَمَآءُ بَیۡنَہُمۡ تَرٰىہُمۡ رُکَّعًا سُجَّدًا یَّبۡتَغُوۡنَ فَضۡلًا مِّنَ اللّٰہِ وَ رِضۡوَانًا ۫ سِیۡمَاہُمۡ فِیۡ وُجُوۡہِہِمۡ مِّنۡ اَثَرِ السُّجُوۡدِ ؕ ذٰلِکَ مَثَلُہُمۡ فِی التَّوۡرٰىۃِ ۚۖۛ وَ مَثَلُہُمۡ فِی الۡاِنۡجِیۡلِ ۚ۟ۛ کَزَرۡعٍ اَخۡرَجَ شَطۡـَٔہٗ فَاٰزَرَہٗ فَاسۡتَغۡلَظَ فَاسۡتَوٰی عَلٰی سُوۡقِہٖ یُعۡجِبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِیَغِیۡظَ بِہِمُ الۡکُفَّارَ ؕ وَعَدَ اللّٰہُ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ مِنۡہُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَۃً وَّ اَجۡرًا عَظِیۡمًا
48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating, seeking bounty from Allah and pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers - so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward.

As per my personal understanding of 48:29, it has to be translated as
The praised one is a messenger of Allah, and those with him are forceful......

Questions about 48:29.
- Who is YOU in "...you see them bowing and prostrating..."?
- If that YOU is referring to us, how can we see those people who passed 1400 years ago?
- Yabtaghoona is muzaarey, that means they are not referring to past, but is used in present and future, how?
- Example of people who are with Muhammad are given in alTawraat and alInjeel and Muhammad's example was not given, why?
- This part of aayat "Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward." Is this forgiveness and great reward on for those people who are with Muhammad 1400 years back?


These are details of my personal understanding of all four aayaat with the word Muhammad(UN)/(IN) in it. Hope this may be of some help if Allah permits, inshaAllah.

May Allah increase our knowledge and guides us on His path :pr

2:23 وَ اِنۡ کُنۡتُمۡ فِیۡ رَیۡبٍ مِّمَّا نَزَّلۡنَا عَلٰی عَبۡدِنَا فَاۡتُوۡا بِسُوۡرَۃٍ مِّنۡ مِّثۡلِہٖ ۪ وَ ادۡعُوۡا شُہَدَآءَکُمۡ مِّنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰہِ اِنۡ کُنۡتُمۡ صٰدِقِیۡنَ

And as per 2:23 SuratIN is an ONLY sura in alQuraan!



26:106 اِذۡ قَالَ لَہُمۡ اَخُوۡہُمۡ نُوۡحٌ اَلَا تَتَّقُوۡنَ
2:68 قَالُوا ادۡعُ لَنَا رَبَّکَ یُبَیِّنۡ لَّنَا مَا ہِیَ ؕ قَالَ اِنَّہٗ یَقُوۡلُ اِنَّہَا بَقَرَۃٌ لَّا فَارِضٌ وَّ لَا بِکۡرٌ ؕ عَوَانٌۢ بَیۡنَ ذٰلِکَ ؕ فَافۡعَلُوۡا مَا تُؤۡمَرُوۡنَ
2:19 اَوۡ کَصَیِّبٍ مِّنَ السَّمَآءِ فِیۡہِ ظُلُمٰتٌ وَّ رَعۡدٌ وَّ بَرۡقٌ ۚ یَجۡعَلُوۡنَ اَصَابِعَہُمۡ فِیۡۤ اٰذَانِہِمۡ مِّنَ الصَّوَاعِقِ حَذَرَ الۡمَوۡتِ ؕ وَ اللّٰہُ مُحِیۡطٌۢ بِالۡکٰفِرِیۡنَ

And as per 2:68, BaqaratUN was ONLY cow in buffaloes.
And as per 2:19, Ra3dUN was ONLY thunder and BarqUN was ONLY lightening in this world!


May Allah open our hearts for Islam and allow us to accept the aayaat of Allah :pr

Greetings,

mmKhan - you leave a lot unsaid. It is difficult to ascertain what you are trying to say. Please, state your point and not just paste verses.

Quote
As per 2:67 BaqaratAN was the ONLY cow in buffaloes?

What was the point of this?

Buffaloes and Cows are 2 different animals!!!!!!!!!!

Also that verse is talking about a single cow - that is true.



Quote
And as per 2:23 SuratIN is an ONLY sura in alQuraan!

In that verse only a single chapter is meant. And that is it.

 



Having said that - I do not know what point you are trying to make. Rather than trying to be clever, if that is the game you are playing. Why don't you state you point?

mmKhan,

Quote
"Because of use of MuhammadUN [with tanween], it is not referring to a name of any person as you might have seen in my previous post."

huh? I don't think you know much Arabic at all. Do you?

Tanween comes on ALL INDEFINITE NOUNS - except those that are Ghair Munsarif, upon whom Tanween is not applicable. For example the name Ibrahim - it doesn't take tanween becuase it is Gahir Munsarif - as non-Arabic names do not accept tanween. As all names are nouns - tanween occurs on them. Just because tanween is upon the name Muhammad that does NOT mean it isn't a name.

Please improve your understanding of Arabic. What you suggest is complete hogwash.



Quote
These words are taken just from let then 70 aayaat of sura baqarata, you may find thousands of examples in alQuraan, inshaAllah.

So what? What does it show? Like I said.  Tanween occurs on all indefinite nouns - unless there is reason for it not to be there.



Quote
And there is no praised one except the messenger. Indeed messengers have passed before* him. So, if he die or be killed, would YOU turn back on your heels? And whoever turns back on his heels will never does any harm to Allah. And Allah will reward those who are grateful.

I am sorry. I do not think you understand Arabic. Understanding tanween is just the basics.

Here is where your argument falls down:

Quote
Did not become a praised one to be a father of YOUR men, but being a messenger of Allah and having a stamp of prophets. And ever is Allah, of all things, Knowing.

Your translation is completely wrong. See you "invented" the translation to fit in with your argument. Ma Kana does not mean: "Did not become"



Quote
- How could be Muhammad of 1400 years back be a father of YOUR men?
- If he was last of the prophets, then how there are still prophets who are guiding people as per 5:44?

1. Again - your poor understanding has let you down. The verse is in - it is NOT referring to men today.

2. There are NO MORE prophets. And neither do verse 5:44 say there are



Quote
And those who believe and do rectified deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon any praised one and that is the truth from their Lord. He will hide from them their misdeeds and rectify their condition.

" any praised one" Where did ANY come from? Again - you invented it to fit in with your "personal understanding"

You are hiding behind this "personal understanding". But this is about being CLEARLY wrong.

"Nuzzila is used in 47:2, which is not for past, but it is used for present and future, please take a look at 25:25 for exact word."

Again your understanding lets you down. Arabic can use Present tense to as past tense and to signify tense-less sentence. Also, please read your translation back to yourself . . . why in English have you translated in past? 

"has been sent down upon" <- - - This is your translation!



"These are details of my personal understanding of all four aayaat with the word Muhammad(UN)/(IN) in it. Hope this may be of some help if Allah permits, inshaAllah."

I am sorry - but this is reckless ignorance and clear mistakes. And not "personal understanding"



See - this is why "quran-only" leaves a lot to be desired. This is clear fitnah! Whatever anyone feels like - they invent new meanings and understanding.

Mr mmKhan - why do I get the feeling you have some other hidden agenda?

Post by: huruf on May 31, 2013, 10:09:29 AM
Salaam,

Here is a translation for all four ayaat using words MuhammadUN and MuhammadIN inshaAllah with the permission of my Lord, Allah. Translation is copied from Sahih International [with necessary changes]. Whatever I am going write down is from my personal understanding, please seek help theCreator, Allah to guide to the truth.

3:144 وَ مَا مُحَمَّدٌ اِلَّا رَسُوۡلٌ ۚ قَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِنۡ قَبۡلِہِ الرُّسُلُ ؕ اَفَا۠ئِنۡ مَّاتَ اَوۡ قُتِلَ انۡقَلَبۡتُمۡ عَلٰۤی اَعۡقَابِکُمۡ ؕ وَ مَنۡ یَّنۡقَلِبۡ عَلٰی عَقِبَیۡہِ فَلَنۡ یَّضُرَّ اللّٰہَ شَیۡئًا ؕ وَ سَیَجۡزِی اللّٰہُ الشّٰکِرِیۡنَ
3:144 Muhammad is not but a messenger. Messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.

My personal understanding about 3:144
Because of use of MuhammadUN [with tanween], it is not referring to a name of any person as you might have seen in my previous post. To understand the usage of tanween better, please take a look at the following aayaat:



HudAN - 2:2  |  marazAN - 2:10  |  naarAN - 2:17  |  firaashAN, binaaAN, maaAN - 2:22  |  yawmAN, shaiyAN - 2:48 
laiylatAN - 2:51  |  raghadAN, sujjadAN - 2:58  |  QawlAN, rijzAN - 2:59  |  a3iynAN - 2:60  |  misrAN - 2:61  |  qiradatAN - 2:65

JannaatIN, thamaratIN - 2:25  |  samaawaatIN - 2:29  |   kafirIN - 2:41  |  nafsIN - 2:48  |  unaasIN - 2:60  |  saalihAN* - 2:62
ta3amIN, waahidIN, ghazabIN - 2:61  |  quwwatIN - 2:63

GhishaawatUN, a3zaabUN - 2:7  |  thummUN, bukmUN, u3myUN - 2:18  |  muheetUN - 2:19  |  QadeerUN - 2:20  |  a3dlUN - 2:48
balaaaUN, a3zeemUN - 2:49  |  KhairUN - 2:54  |  khaufUN - 2:62  |  faaridhUN, bikrUN, faaqiu3UN - 2:69



These words are taken just from let then 70 aayaat of sura baqarata, you may find thousands of examples in alQuraan, inshaAllah.

Now back to 3:144, it has to be translated as
And there is no praised one except the messenger. Indeed messengers have passed before* him. So, if he die or be killed, would YOU turn back on your heels? And whoever turns back on his heels will never does any harm to Allah. And Allah will reward those who are grateful.

Questions from 3:144.
- If he die or be killed would YOU turn back on your heels? How will YOU turn back on heels, when a messenger die 1400 years ago? Inqalabtum is not a past tense, but it has to be used in present and future. How?
- And whoso ever turns back on his heels will never does any harm to Allah. This part of aayat is also not in past tense. Then how do you understand this?



33:40 مَا کَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ اَبَاۤ اَحَدٍ مِّنۡ رِّجَالِکُمۡ وَ لٰکِنۡ رَّسُوۡلَ اللّٰہِ وَ خَاتَمَ النَّبِیّٖنَ ؕ وَ کَانَ اللّٰہُ بِکُلِّ شَیۡءٍ عَلِیۡمًا
33:40 Muhammad is not the father of one of your men, but the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing.

As per my personal understanding of 33:40, it has to be translated as:
Did not become a praised one to be a father of YOUR men, but being a messenger of Allah and having a stamp of prophets. And ever is Allah, of all things, Knowing.

To understand the meaning of khatama, please get back to my previous messages in this thread. And look at a word taba3a as seal in 16:108. To understand initial part of 33:40, please check 16:58 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=16&verse=58) and 16:59 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=16&verse=59).

16:58 وَ اِذَا بُشِّرَ اَحَدُہُمۡ بِالۡاُنۡثٰی ظَلَّ وَجۡہُہٗ مُسۡوَدًّا وَّ ہُوَ کَظِیۡمٌ
16:58 And when one of them is informed of a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief.

16:59 یَتَوَارٰی مِنَ الۡقَوۡمِ مِنۡ سُوۡٓءِ مَا بُشِّرَ بِہٖ ؕ اَیُمۡسِکُہٗ عَلٰی ہُوۡنٍ اَمۡ یَدُسُّہٗ فِی التُّرَابِ ؕ اَلَا سَآءَ مَا یَحۡکُمُوۡنَ
16:59 He hides himself from the people because of the ill of which he has been informed. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground? Unquestionably, evil is what they decide.

Questions about 33:40
- How could be Muhammad of 1400 years back be a father of YOUR men?
- If he was last of the prophets, then how there are still prophets who are guiding people as per 5:44?



47:2 وَ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَ اٰمَنُوۡا بِمَا نُزِّلَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ ہُوَ الۡحَقُّ مِنۡ رَّبِّہِمۡ ۙ کَفَّرَ عَنۡہُمۡ سَیِّاٰتِہِمۡ وَ اَصۡلَحَ بَالَہُمۡ
47:2 And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad - and it is the truth from their Lord - He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition.

As per my personal understanding of 47:2, it has to be translated as:
And those who believe and do rectified deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon any praised one and that is the truth from their Lord. He will hide from them their misdeeds and rectify their condition.

Nuzzila is used in 47:2, which is not for past, but it is used for present and future, please take a look at 25:25 for exact word.



48:29 مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ ؕ وَ الَّذِیۡنَ مَعَہٗۤ اَشِدَّآءُ عَلَی الۡکُفَّارِ رُحَمَآءُ بَیۡنَہُمۡ تَرٰىہُمۡ رُکَّعًا سُجَّدًا یَّبۡتَغُوۡنَ فَضۡلًا مِّنَ اللّٰہِ وَ رِضۡوَانًا ۫ سِیۡمَاہُمۡ فِیۡ وُجُوۡہِہِمۡ مِّنۡ اَثَرِ السُّجُوۡدِ ؕ ذٰلِکَ مَثَلُہُمۡ فِی التَّوۡرٰىۃِ ۚۖۛ وَ مَثَلُہُمۡ فِی الۡاِنۡجِیۡلِ ۚ۟ۛ کَزَرۡعٍ اَخۡرَجَ شَطۡـَٔہٗ فَاٰزَرَہٗ فَاسۡتَغۡلَظَ فَاسۡتَوٰی عَلٰی سُوۡقِہٖ یُعۡجِبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِیَغِیۡظَ بِہِمُ الۡکُفَّارَ ؕ وَعَدَ اللّٰہُ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ مِنۡہُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَۃً وَّ اَجۡرًا عَظِیۡمًا
48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating, seeking bounty from Allah and pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers - so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward.

As per my personal understanding of 48:29, it has to be translated as
The praised one is a messenger of Allah, and those with him are forceful......

Questions about 48:29.
- Who is YOU in "...you see them bowing and prostrating..."?
- If that YOU is referring to us, how can we see those people who passed 1400 years ago?
- Yabtaghoona is muzaarey, that means they are not referring to past, but is used in present and future, how?
- Example of people who are with Muhammad are given in alTawraat and alInjeel and Muhammad's example was not given, why?
- This part of aayat "Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward." Is this forgiveness and great reward on for those people who are with Muhammad 1400 years back?


These are details of my personal understanding of all four aayaat with the word Muhammad(UN)/(IN) in it. Hope this may be of some help if Allah permits, inshaAllah.

May Allah increase our knowledge and guides us on His path :pr

Before anything else, rather than past nor present, what verbs in Arabic indicate is whther the action is completed or uncompleted. Completed or uncompleted actions can be in the past, the present, or the future. It is from other pointers from which the time of the action has to be gathered.

In many cases, for obvious reasons what is most proper int he Qur'an is that what must be valid for all time not be characterised by a fixed and that it should not be adscribed to past present or future.

Assuming that the Prophet to whom the Qur'an was revealed was told to say something told to him by God and is so expressed in the qur'an, obviously it was indeed said in the past, the question is whether it is to be valid after that. In that case:

What is the problem that Muhamadun be name or title as far as the Qur'an ins concerned. Or is it being suggested that the Qur'an was revealed to more than one Prophet?

I appreciate that finally translations have been provided, or the understanding of the ayas, but I am still puzzled as to how does that affect the prophet who transmitted the Qur'an to the rest people at large. Is that it, that there was more than one prophet, what is being put forward?

As to the question of he being father of rijal as opposed to daughters, that has been traditionally aknowledged. Is there some other aspect of it that is new and tied to the titleness of Muhammadun and not tied the namness of Muhammadun?

On the other hand, rijaal is not necessarily only males, it can be persons of certain standing or eminence or capability in whatever domain, or also any person.

Also that verse is talking about a single cow - that is true.

In that verse only a single chapter is meant. And that is it.

Greetings to you too,

Red: This is what I was asking you. Why it becomes "a single" in the aayaat quoted and why it became "ONLY" when it comes to Nooh? Check what you wrote in your previous message. This is what I was trying to clarify.

Verse 2:67

And [recall] when Moses said to his people, "Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you take us in ridicule?" He said, "I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant."

A single cow is mentioned because that is what was going to be slaughtered! It is "single" because of the linguistic form of the word: Indefinite singular noun.

For example:

I want an apple in Arabic is: اريد تفاحا

You can understand from this a single apple is meant.



As for this:

" "ONLY" when it comes to Nooh? "

You do realize that - ONLY is from me and NOT in the verse!

In the verse:

3:33

Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of 'Imran over the worlds -

Noah is name as is Adam as is Abraham and Imran. They are ALL names!



"Thank Allah that I am not done masters in Arabic, alhamduliAllah."

A pity - then you would not make basic mistakes. And do I take it you have chosen to stay silent on the other questions?

Salaam,

I am wondering how this can be solved. I never found any names in AlQuraan ending with this tanween (http://s16.postimage.org/7g525pigh/dammahtain1.jpg) either two of them, as in Muhammed i.e., (http://s11.postimage.org/61fz5f1nz/Muhammed.png)

Other prophet's names used in AlQuraan are as:

اِبۡرٰہِیۡمَ
اِسۡحٰقَ
اِسۡمٰعِیۡلَ
ہٰرُوۡنَ
مُوۡسٰی
سُلَیۡمٰنَ
دَاوٗدَ
اَیُّوۡبَ
یُوۡسُفَ
یَعۡقُوۡبَ
اِلۡیَاسَ
زَکَرِیَّا
یَحۡیٰی
عِیۡسٰی
یُوۡنُسَ


Why not any name ends with tanween? Is Muhammed not a name? If it is a name then how about 6:114 and 6:139?

6:114 اَفَغَیۡرَ اللّٰہِ اَبۡتَغِیۡ حَکَمًا وَّ ہُوَ الَّذِیۡۤ اَنۡزَلَ اِلَیۡکُمُ الۡکِتٰبَ مُفَصَّلًا ؕ وَ الَّذِیۡنَ اٰتَیۡنٰہُمُ الۡکِتٰبَ یَعۡلَمُوۡنَ اَنَّہٗ مُنَزَّلٌ مِّنۡ رَّبِّکَ بِالۡحَقِّ فَلَا تَکُوۡنَنَّ مِنَ الۡمُمۡتَرِیۡنَ
6:114 Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?" And those to whom We gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

مُنَزَّلٌ is set on same weight as مُحَمَّدٌ so why don't they used it as a name? Please click here (http://free-minds.org/translation.jsp?chapter=6&verse=114) to see other translations of this aayat.

6:139 وَ قَالُوۡا مَا فِیۡ بُطُوۡنِ ہٰذِہِ الۡاَنۡعَامِ خَالِصَۃٌ لِّذُکُوۡرِنَا وَ مُحَرَّمٌ عَلٰۤی اَزۡوَاجِنَا ۚ وَ اِنۡ یَّکُنۡ مَّیۡتَۃً فَہُمۡ فِیۡہِ شُرَکَآءُ ؕ سَیَجۡزِیۡہِمۡ وَصۡفَہُمۡ ؕ اِنَّہٗ حَکِیۡمٌ عَلِیۡمٌ
6:139 And they say, "What is in the bellies of these animals is exclusively for our males and forbidden to our females. But if it is  dead, then all of them have shares therein." He will punish them for their description. Indeed, He is Wise and Knowing.

مُحَرَّمٌ is also set on same weight as مُحَمَّدٌ, so why did they translate it and why not use as a name? Please click here (http://free-minds.org/translation.jsp?chapter=6&verse=139) to see other translations.

If we also translate the word مُحَمَّدٌ, which is derived from the word حَمۡدُ, means praise and مُحَمَّدٌ means praised one.

48:29 مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ...
48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah... [regular translation]

If we translate the word مُحَمَّدٌ, 48:29 will be translated as "Praised one is the Messenger of Allah....", this means whoever is the Messenger of Allah is the praised one.

Fortunately or unfortunately I don't have any evidence, not a single aayat that says that AlQuraan was given to Muhammad. Why there is no such aayat if it was given to him?


All explanations, comments, suggestions, critics, advises, support are welcome.


May Allah increase us in knowledge and guide us to His true path  :pr

Mr Khan,

Your original post shows an absolute basic error of Arabic. Why are you obstinately continuing in this, when you clearly know that you do not understand Arabic? If you do not know about Tanween in Arabic, then this does mean you do not understand Arabic. In your last post you had the audacity to suggest that you did not need Arabic.

Can I suggest, if you are that interested in studying Quran, then please learn the language. And not pretend to know a lot and end up misguiding other.

Thank you.

See - this is why "quran-only" leaves a lot to be desired. This is clear fitnah! Whatever anyone feels like - they invent new meanings and understanding.

6:20 اَلَّذِیۡنَ اٰتَیۡنٰہُمُ الۡکِتٰبَ یَعۡرِفُوۡنَہٗ کَمَا یَعۡرِفُوۡنَ اَبۡنَآءَہُمۡ ۘ اَلَّذِیۡنَ خَسِرُوۡۤا اَنۡفُسَہُمۡ فَہُمۡ لَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ
6:20 Those to whom We have given alKitaab recognize it as they recognize their sons. Those who will lose themselves do not believe.

Do you know what alKitaab is? I think you don't.

6:21 وَ مَنۡ اَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ افۡتَرٰی عَلَی اللّٰہِ کَذِبًا اَوۡ کَذَّبَ بِاٰیٰتِہٖ ؕ اِنَّہٗ لَا یُفۡلِحُ الظّٰلِمُوۡنَ
6:21 And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie or denies His verses? Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed.

If you don't understand this aayat, surely you will come to know soon.

6:22 وَ یَوۡمَ نَحۡشُرُہُمۡ جَمِیۡعًا ثُمَّ نَقُوۡلُ لِلَّذِیۡنَ اَشۡرَکُوۡۤا اَیۡنَ شُرَکَآؤُکُمُ الَّذِیۡنَ کُنۡتُمۡ تَزۡعُمُوۡنَ
6:22 And the Day We will gather them all together; then We will say to those who associated others with Allah , "Where are your 'partners' that you used to claim?"

6:23 ثُمَّ لَمۡ تَکُنۡ فِتۡنَتُہُمۡ اِلَّاۤ اَنۡ قَالُوۡا وَ اللّٰہِ رَبِّنَا مَا کُنَّا مُشۡرِکِیۡنَ
6:23 Then there will be no examination except they will say, "By Allah , our Lord, we were not those who associated."

This is the real fitna. And do you understand what these aayaat are about? Or do you think this is for Christians, Jews, Hindus and others? Take it on yourself and see, how it fits perfectly. Because if keeping your rasool besides Allah is not shirk for you? Why we need them for NOW? And finally it is said that "By Allah , our Lord, we were not those who associated." This happens because you don't consider it as shirk. This is shirk to me, and alhamduliAllah, by my Lord's grace and blessings I am not of mushriks. :hail

6:24 اُنۡظُرۡ کَیۡفَ کَذَبُوۡا عَلٰۤی اَنۡفُسِہِمۡ وَ ضَلَّ عَنۡہُمۡ مَّا کَانُوۡا یَفۡتَرُوۡنَ

Yaftaroon.... What ever is invented is going to lost, and many of having invented hadith, rasool, nabi, etc.

6:25 And among them are those who listen to you, but We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. Even when they come to you arguing with you, those who disbelieve say, "This is not but legends of the former peoples."

Green: See how truthful my Lord is...

Red: I am seeing that...

Blue: Wow! So many stories of former people we have... even when it is not in alQuraan actually... SubhanAllah!

Mr mmKhan - why do I get the feeling you have some other hidden agenda?

Nothing to worry bro... it seems, you see beyond your limits.

10:41 وَ اِنۡ کَذَّبُوۡکَ فَقُلۡ لِّیۡ عَمَلِیۡ وَ لَکُمۡ عَمَلُکُمۡ ۚ اَنۡتُمۡ بَرِیۡٓـــُٔوۡنَ مِمَّاۤ اَعۡمَلُ وَ اَنَا بَرِیۡٓءٌ مِّمَّا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ
10:41 And if they deny you, then say, "For me are my deeds, and for you are your deeds. You are disassociated from what I do, and I am disassociated from what you do."

Before anything else, rather than past nor present, what verbs in Arabic indicate is whther the action is completed or uncompleted. Completed or uncompleted actions can be in the past, the present, or the future. It is from other pointers from which the time of the action has to be gathered.

In many cases, for obvious reasons what is most proper int he Qur'an is that what must be valid for all time not be characterised by a fixed and that it should not be adscribed to past present or future.
Salaam huruf,

Can you please get me some aayaat as an example to what you said?

Quote
Assuming that the Prophet to whom the Qur'an was revealed was told to say something told to him by God and is so expressed in the qur'an, obviously it was indeed said in the past, the question is whether it is to be valid after that. In that case:

What is the problem that Muhamadun be name or title as far as the Qur'an ins concerned. Or is it being suggested that the Qur'an was revealed to more than one Prophet?
I am really surprise to see that no one bothers to look for to whom alTauraat was revealed. And we are not in trouble even if we don't find anyone mentioned for the same. But when it comes to alQuraan, someone is needed, somehow! Does this really matter? specially when it is not mentioned?

Red: The problem with it is, we will be lying on Allah if we say something that is not said by Allah. Look what Allah says:

10:17 فَمَنۡ اَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ افۡتَرٰی عَلَی اللّٰہِ کَذِبًا اَوۡ کَذَّبَ بِاٰیٰتِہٖ ؕ اِنَّہٗ لَا یُفۡلِحُ الۡمُجۡرِمُوۡنَ
10:17 So who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah or denies His signs? Indeed, the criminals will not succeed

Is it not dangerous? :& May Allah protect us :pr

Quote
I appreciate that finally translations have been provided, or the understanding of the ayas, but I am still puzzled as to how does that affect the prophet who transmitted the Qur'an to the rest people at large. Is that it, that there was more than one prophet, what is being put forward?
Can you please get me a single aayat mentioning the red highlighted part above? If not, then please remember the above quoted aayat.

Quote
As to the question of he being father of rijal as opposed to daughters, that has been traditionally aknowledged. Is there some other aspect of it that is new and tied to the titleness of Muhammadun and not tied the namness of Muhammadun?
Muhammadun is not the title of any known person or something... but every rasool is Muhammadun.

Quote
On the other hand, rijaal is not necessarily only males, it can be persons of certain standing or eminence or capability in whatever domain, or also any person.

Salaam

Sorry, I cannot say anything here on rijaal as I have to study on this subject.

Mr Khan,

Your original post shows an absolute basic error of Arabic. Why are you obstinately continuing in this, when you clearly know that you do not understand Arabic? If you do not know about Tanween in Arabic, then this does mean you do not understand Arabic. In your last post you had the audacity to suggest that you did not need Arabic.

Brother Chimp,

Do you mean that every person need to do masters in Arabic to understand alQuraan? Do you have any aayat to support your claim? How do you understand 2:185?

2:185 شَہۡرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِیۡۤ اُنۡزِلَ فِیۡہِ الۡقُرۡاٰنُ ہُدًی لِّلنَّاسِ وَ بَیِّنٰتٍ مِّنَ الۡہُدٰی وَ الۡفُرۡقَانِ ۚ فَمَنۡ شَہِدَ مِنۡکُمُ الشَّہۡرَ فَلۡیَصُمۡہُ ؕ وَ مَنۡ کَانَ مَرِیۡضًا اَوۡ عَلٰی سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّۃٌ مِّنۡ اَیَّامٍ اُخَرَ ؕ یُرِیۡدُ اللّٰہُ بِکُمُ الۡیُسۡرَ وَ لَا یُرِیۡدُ بِکُمُ الۡعُسۡرَ ۫ وَ لِتُکۡمِلُوا الۡعِدَّۃَ وَ لِتُکَبِّرُوا اللّٰہَ عَلٰی مَا ہَدٰىکُمۡ وَ لَعَلَّکُمۡ تَشۡکُرُوۡنَ
2:185 The month of Ramadhan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.

I am interested to know how do you understand the highlighted part above? A guidance for alNaasi. How? After learning man made Arabic grammar? Or alNaas does not mean all humans, but referring only to ulamas? I don't see it is mentioned here... Do you have any other aayat to quote on this, please do so, I am open for corrections.

2:2 ذٰلِکَ الۡکِتٰبُ لَا رَیۡبَ ۚۖۛ فِیۡہِ ۚۛ ہُدًی لِّلۡمُتَّقِیۡنَ
2:2 That is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for alMuttaqeena

Again, alKitaab guides to alMuttaqeen. Do you want to say, every muttaqee is already done masters in man made Arabic grammar? Think about it bro.

Quote
Can I suggest, if you are that interested in studying Quran, then please learn the language. And not pretend to know a lot and end up misguiding other.

Thank you.

10:108 قُلۡ یٰۤاَیُّہَا النَّاسُ قَدۡ جَآءَکُمُ الۡحَقُّ مِنۡ رَّبِّکُمۡ ۚ فَمَنِ اہۡتَدٰی فَاِنَّمَا یَہۡتَدِیۡ لِنَفۡسِہٖ ۚ وَ مَنۡ ضَلَّ فَاِنَّمَا یَضِلُّ عَلَیۡہَا ۚ وَ مَاۤ اَنَا عَلَیۡکُمۡ بِوَکِیۡلٍ
10:108 Say, "O mankind, the truth has come to you from your Lord, so whoever is guided is only guided for his soul, and whoever goes astray only goes astray against it. And I am not over you a manager."

7:186 مَنۡ یُّضۡلِلِ اللّٰہُ فَلَا ہَادِیَ لَہٗ ؕ وَ یَذَرُہُمۡ فِیۡ طُغۡیَانِہِمۡ یَعۡمَہُوۡنَ
7:186 Whoever Allah sends astray - there is no guide for him. And He leaves them in their transgression, wandering blindly.

You see Allah is the one Who misguides , who am I to misguide anyone? But why Allah misguides is the real question...

6:20 اَلَّذِیۡنَ اٰتَیۡنٰہُمُ الۡکِتٰبَ یَعۡرِفُوۡنَہٗ کَمَا یَعۡرِفُوۡنَ اَبۡنَآءَہُمۡ ۘ اَلَّذِیۡنَ خَسِرُوۡۤا اَنۡفُسَہُمۡ فَہُمۡ لَا یُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ
6:20 Those to whom We have given alKitaab recognize it as they recognize their sons. Those who will lose themselves do not believe.

Do you know what alKitaab is? I think you don't.

6:21 وَ مَنۡ اَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ افۡتَرٰی عَلَی اللّٰہِ کَذِبًا اَوۡ کَذَّبَ بِاٰیٰتِہٖ ؕ اِنَّہٗ لَا یُفۡلِحُ الظّٰلِمُوۡنَ
6:21 And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie or denies His verses? Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed.

If you don't understand this aayat, surely you will come to know soon.

6:22 وَ یَوۡمَ نَحۡشُرُہُمۡ جَمِیۡعًا ثُمَّ نَقُوۡلُ لِلَّذِیۡنَ اَشۡرَکُوۡۤا اَیۡنَ شُرَکَآؤُکُمُ الَّذِیۡنَ کُنۡتُمۡ تَزۡعُمُوۡنَ
6:22 And the Day We will gather them all together; then We will say to those who associated others with Allah , "Where are your 'partners' that you used to claim?"

6:23 ثُمَّ لَمۡ تَکُنۡ فِتۡنَتُہُمۡ اِلَّاۤ اَنۡ قَالُوۡا وَ اللّٰہِ رَبِّنَا مَا کُنَّا مُشۡرِکِیۡنَ
6:23 Then there will be no examination except they will say, "By Allah , our Lord, we were not those who associated."

This is the real fitna. And do you understand what these aayaat are about? Or do you think this is for Christians, Jews, Hindus and others? Take it on yourself and see, how it fits perfectly. Because if keeping your rasool besides Allah is not shirk for you? Why we need them for NOW? And finally it is said that "By Allah , our Lord, we were not those who associated." This happens because you don't consider it as shirk. This is shirk to me, and alhamduliAllah, by my Lord's grace and blessings I am not of mushriks. :hail

6:24 اُنۡظُرۡ کَیۡفَ کَذَبُوۡا عَلٰۤی اَنۡفُسِہِمۡ وَ ضَلَّ عَنۡہُمۡ مَّا کَانُوۡا یَفۡتَرُوۡنَ

Mr Khan,

It is quite apparent that you do not understand even the basics of Arabic. Yet you have come down this path. Now misleading yourself is something else, but, misleading others is very dangerous.

It is not so much everyone needs formal education and degrees in Arabic, no. But they do need expertise in Arabic. And you lack this. I have been greatly disappointed. I have pointed out your basic mistakes. You have chosen not to account for them. Rather, take the somewhat cowardly way out, of posting verses in order to be sanctimonious. Please tell me how does this answer for your not even knowing what tanween is, yet you go on to build a whole narrative upon it? If premise of an argument is proven to be false then the conclusion is automatically false.

Now it NOT my intention to "humiliate" you in anyway. However, stopping this nonsense is. I see clear, basic errors in your understaing. I have pointed them out. Shouldn't you believe in those moralising verses and go and check this out and correct your understanding?



See, here is your ignorance laid bare:

Quote
After learning man made Arabic grammar?

You mean, you have a private version of Arabic? In which, what you says goes? Now which verse is this from? How does asking further questions account for you previous mistakes?



Quote
Do you want to say, every muttaqee is already done masters in man made Arabic grammar? Think about it bro.

I am sorry to say, I do not find you a mutaqee. A mutaqee would not, when their mistakes are pointed out, still find excuses to cling to them. A mutaqee would not pretend and give false impressions. How does this account for you, not even understanding the basics such as Tanween?  If you are claiming to be such a mutaqee - then why is it rather than learning Arabic - you are wasting time in building such falsehoods? When this is pointed out, then you say Arabic grammar is "man-made"?



Quote
You see Allah is the one Who misguides , who am I to misguide anyone? But why Allah misguides is the real question...

No, My dear, no. If one walks on the path of MISGUIDANCE then and only then Allah misguidance. Why would Allah misguide a truthful person?

Why is it you coloured this green and left is discounted:

"O mankind, the truth has come to you from your Lord"

Just to make up, whatever?



It is up to you. I would suggest desist from this madness.

Peace mmKhan,

Those who say you need expertise etc in Arabic in order to understand the Quran, appear to ignore the fact that the Quran is a reminder. If it is a Reminder, it's almost like its getting you back on track about the essentials you should already know. So, even if you barely know any Arabic, you can still understand the core principles and guidance of the Quran. Of course, some verses are contentious, but I think its quite easy to identify these and leave them for the time being in the learning process. considering that the central principles of Islam - belief in one God, the last day and doing good, are all laid out in the Quran translations even. Islam, I also believe, is bookless as others on here have stated. The Signs of Allah swt are everywhere and the Quran is one Sign.

I also find that people who think this way are overlooking the simplicity of Islam. That God swt grants us the morality and understanding in the first place. I find this overlooking of simplicity among atheists too. The fact that Allah swt talks about signs in the world and universe - this is all too simple for atheists. But then where would God place His signs? And if Islam (devotion to the Creator etc) is to be accepted and understood by all people, regardless of education, then what could be more fair than placing the Signs in the world all around you. Very straightforward, Subhan'Allah.

Salam,

Did you by any chance miss the fact that Mr Khan made basic errors and has been unable to defend other than making

Or do you misunderstand the fact why expertise are needed?

Why do you come out to defend sheer ignorance?

Was it not you who said

Are these 'signs' of yours not from Satan?

Why do you think one needs scholars? If ill, how many times do you reject medical opinion and treat yourself? Medical science is there to benefit all. It benefits everyone. Everyone has access to it. But why do you think "experts" are required?



"Those who say you need expertise etc in Arabic in order to understand the Quran, appear to ignore the fact that the Quran is a reminder. "

If you cannot understand Arabic, then you rely on those who do. Else you cannot understand one word. Which makes this sheer nonsense. Brother, you have done what happens at every forum. You clearly can see this person is misleading with his ignorance and nonsense. Yet, you have come out defend this ignorance. Now, where is your high-flying rhetoric about truth?



" If it is a Reminder, it's almost like its getting you back on track about the essentials you should already know. So, even if you barely know any Arabic, you can still understand the core principles and guidance of the Quran. "

Yes, by reading translations. But if you get bare basics wrong, yet have the audacity and stupidity to preach sheer ignorance, then you are not being "guided". This is about basic honesty and truth. Mr Khan knows he is wrong and he does not understand Arabic and he knows he cannot defend his ignorance. Yet, it appears, he also lacks  the basic honesty, humility and truthfulness to admit it and stop spreading ignorance.



"Of course, some verses are contentious, but I think its quite easy to identify these and leave them for the time being in the learning process. considering that the central principles of Islam - belief in one God, the last day and doing good, are all laid out in the Quran translations even. Islam, I also believe, is bookless as others on here have stated. The Signs of Allah swt are everywhere and the Quran is one Sign."

No, on evidence, it is not easy, far from it. Risalah is/was and absolute basic principles of Islam. Look at it? It has been ripped to absolute shreds. With what? With absolute nonsense and sheer ignorance. When mistakes are pointed out, what happens? People start spouting meaningless moralising verses about irrelevant and different subject. Why?



"I also find that people who think this way are overlooking the simplicity of Islam. That God swt grants us the morality and understanding in the first place. "

So, making fundamental mistakes and preaching this ignorance to others, is "simplicity". Isn't this making mockery of Islam. Why do you think hardly ANYONE believes in "quran-only"?  Or has ever and will ever believe in this ignorance? Because "quran-only" has no principles whatsoever. It's sheer chaos.



"The fact that Allah swt talks about signs in the world and universe - this is all too simple for atheists."

huh?



"But then where would God place His signs? And if Islam (devotion to the Creator etc) is to be accepted and understood by all people, regardless of education, then what could be more fair than placing the Signs in the world all around you. Very straightforward, Subhan'Allah. "

Here again - you talk about all people as if the majority are in agreement with your position. You are aware that over 99.5% of Muslims do not share the "Quran only" position. You are a very, very very minute sect. You have yet to acquire a single scholar that can stand up. Yes - there is someone like Yuksel. But even someone like Sina bested him.

There is no consistent and clear methodology of interpreting Quran that "Quran only" have developed. Else where is it. This is why, whenever any old oddity speaks up and start to spout the kind of ignorance above, then you have no one that can assess and verify.



I am disappointed by your position - supportpeacenotwar - you have chosen to side with ignorance rather than standing for truth and honesty.

Everything that exists, exists only because God makes it exist out of Its own existence. Nothing is of itself. So it is only logical that everything that exists has His imprint. Nothing can be straneous to Him or come as a surprise or without His names on it. Therefore we recognize, because we also belong in that existence which is His existence.

Nothing exists that is not a sign of His.

The Qur'an is a sign for people who reflect. We may use scholars or we may not, we reflect. We may use one scholar and not the rest. We may think somebody is a scholar and disagree with the rest of the world on that. We reflect. We must reflect if we must learn from God's ayas. And more than scholar we need righteous and sincere people, whether scholars or beggars. Knowledge is not the same thing as scholarship. Virtue is not the same thing as scholarship. And virtue is not learnt by reading scholars, but by following good examples and, above all, by believing in it from the heart.

Adn as per the Qur'an: wherever you turn is the face of Allah. Everything helps and scholars may help, but God there is only one, and of each of us there is only one. Each one must do his or her own reflection, and the best reflection comes from sincerity, from one's own heart that we try to purify as m?s as we can. That task we cannot delegate. It is ours. It is our responsibility. Howe we do it is also our responsibility and our task, and for that we have to know ourselves or try to. It is us who must change, evolve, develop, even more than we may try to change, eolve or develop the world. If we do not have power over ourselves, what can we do for others. However, since we are not isolated beings, the best and most productive is that we deal with each other, and learn from others aobut ourselves. Like the river stones, we shape by rubbing and clashing with the others, and we become polished.

Peace huruf,

My point about Signs in the world around us/within ourselves (I should have included that bit as well, it was late, cut me some slack! :P) is really about quoting the Quran without actually quoting it. My point was not to limit the Signs of Allah or say that it isn't deep. The point was directly in relation to the times I have seen many atheists mock the idea that things like the day or night, that stars set in motion, other natural phenomenon that are mentioned in the Quran such as the movement of clouds and so on, that this is all too simple to be a sign of God. That's the direct point I was addressing so it seemed most appropriate to put it like that. Especially since the Quran uses the type of terminology in translation - of Signs of Allah in the world and in themselves.

I agree with you that all of existence reflects God's existence because its made by Him. I made a similar point about God's Signs manifesting on every level in another thread. http://free-minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=9605300.msg326341#msg326341

This is more pretence. Meaningless sanctimony and preaching. Look at the issue above. A person has posted ignorance - and you are claiming we don't need scholarship? I am sorry, but that is against logic and basic common sense. It is absolute basic - to understand Quran at first hand, you need to know Arabic. 

There is no getting around the issue. Else - you end up making some pretty horrendous mistakes. I mean, think about it, here is a book you consider to be divine word of God, written in Arabic, and you cannot be bothered to learn it. What do you do? Make petty excuses. Isn't that just dishonest.

But, one would expect, that the "quran-only" would be foremost in knowing Arabic and the Quran, and that just isn't the case.

Interesting you pick up on this post of mine, but don't respond to the posts I made that directly addressed you earlier about hadith and everything. I'm only mentioning this because of the tone I'm getting from you. Then again, maybe those discussions would get TOO drawn out and the discussion wears itself down so it might be for the best. Especially if you continue to discuss this way.

Sorry, but I haven't been reading all the posts, that caught my attention because I believe one does not need much or any knowledge in Arabic in order to understand the central principles Quran. I agree that it is important to understand that translations are limited and that sometimes the Arabic is not translated well. But for all the central and primary principles of Islam, I believe we have them already and the Quran is just a reinforcer and reminder, yet another blessings - I'm sure you agree - that God swt will bestow knowledge and understanding upon those seek guidance.

Was it not you who said

Are these 'signs' of yours not from Satan?

What? Can you explain this? I don't say things are from Satan, and in fact I've said that several times on this forum. :)

If you cannot understand Arabic, then you rely on those who do.

Brother, my whole point is about relying on God. Knowledge of Arabic is nice and all but its not necessary. The central principles of faith are laid out in the Quran. Believe in The Deity, the last day, and do good. That is all about 'salvation' as some put it but I don't really use that term.

Quote
Yes, by reading translations. But if you get bare basics wrong, yet have the audacity and stupidity to preach sheer ignorance, then you are not being "guided". This is about basic honesty and truth. Mr Khan knows he is wrong and he does not understand Arabic and he knows he cannot defend his ignorance. Yet, it appears, he also lacks  the basic honesty, humility and truthfulness to admit it and stop spreading ignorance.

You have the audacity to say you know the Quran but then you use language and a demeanour like this. I see this is clearly what you learnt was acceptable from the Quran when you read it in Arabic? Calling people stupid, ignorant. My point was not about Mr Khan, I just thought of some points based on what he said.

Quote
No, on evidence, it is not easy, far from it. Risalah is/was and absolute basic principles of Islam. Look at it? It has been ripped to absolute shreds. With what? With absolute nonsense and sheer ignorance. When mistakes are pointed out, what happens? People start spouting meaningless moralising verses about irrelevant and different subject. Why?

The rest of the Quran contains enough hints or you can simply look at whether the verse is encouraging a strange violent response when it does not encourage violence e.g. ''then beat them'' in relation to your wives.

When you call upon God swt for guidance, God swt doesn't restrict Himself to those who know Arabic or the experts and you have to then go through them to get it. Otherwise many people are doomed because they may simply not have access to such expertise. God swt emphasises equality and justice.

"The fact that Allah swt talks about signs in the world and universe - this is all too simple for atheists."

Sorry, sister,

I did not mean to point out any lack in your post, I just saw the opportunity of pointing out what I did. I am sure you are aware and conscious of it. But, as I say, it seemed to me particularly to the point, because if we think tawheed means anything, then everything is coherent and harmony and sense will pervade everything that exists and speak to us if we listen.

You seem a very patient person. Best wishes.

And what tone is that?



Quote
because I believe one does not need much or any knowledge in Arabic in order to understand the central principles Quran. I agree that it is important to understand that translations are limited and that sometimes the Arabic is not translated well.

But this discussion isn't really about understanding the basics is it? No one is questioning that Arabic is not required to be a simple believer and practitioner of Islam.

However, I would have thought Prophethood is a basic and central point of Quran. Yet, it isn't being understood. But look at the basis of the challenge from Mr. Khan. He in proficient in Arabic, yet builds a whole narrative, clearly upon mistakes. Yet when these are pointed out, he spouts meaningless diatribe. And you chose to answer that. Why?

It is essential to know Arabic - if you are going to talk about Arabic and use it. Would you go to a doctor who lacked basic knowledge of medicine? No.

Also this about basic "truthfulness". Which I find to be lacking.



Quote
But for all the central and primary principles of Islam, I believe we have them already and the Quran is just a reinforcer and reminder

Please elaborate - what primary principles? I would have though Prophethood was basic.  Yet look at the way it is being challenged. Again we are not talking about being a simple believer. This person himself build quite an elaborate narrative on Arabic that was clearly wrong.

Yet, he knew that he did not know much Arabic. So why did he do that? And when his mistakes are pointed out. He is not able to defend them other than meaningless diatribe. What I mean is, he could not salvage his Arabic mistakes, which are mistakes and he knows it. Yet still tries to claim credence.

I find that amazing and lacking in honest and sheer stupidity.

This is not about being a simple believer. But when you begin to advocate theology, knowing full well that your Arabic level is poor and likely to be wrong then sure that is deliberately misleading people. Then it does not matter how many irrelevant verses you throw out. Does it.

And if their evasion is difficult for you, then if you are able to seek a tunnel into the earth or a stairway into the sky to bring them a sign, [then do so]. But if Allah had willed, He would have united them upon guidance. So never be of the ignorant.

Do you know how strongly the Quran deals with stupidity, ignorance and spreading falsehood? I don't think there is any point in quoting verses is there.

Once again - this is NOT about simple guidance. And it is about expertise. I doubt Allah guides those that lack basic sense of "truth". Do you? How is deliberately spreading falsehood even remotely guidance?

I am sorry to say, fine sentiment, but to my ears it rings very hollow. Shouldn't you be siding with "truth" - rather than whom you perceive to be you fellow? I believe you have the faculties to assess who is telling the truth, in this matter?

"Those who say you need expertise etc in Arabic in order to understand the Quran, appear to ignore the fact that the Quran is a reminder. "

This is taking sides! I don't think you can really deny that. It doesn't matter you did not mention me. The reference IS toward me. Actually, I find that somewhat lacking in courage.  And the logic of the line is faulty. Just because something is a "reminder" why would its basic language not matter?

Peace,

I think ignorance and misleading ideas are spread everywhere, however, the intelligent can see through them. One cannot say that disinformation about God and His system is not spread within the Sunni sect because of blind reliance upon hadith and man-made conjecture.

I am not swallowing the ideas of mmnkhan and Bender, but yet here I am following this community as a friend. They are at least reminding us that Muhammad can mean something else other than a name which is true, just like Hassan and Hussein. In the context of these verses which mmkhan highlighted it is higher probability that they are names though or the phrases would sound a bit strange. Yet it is always good to watch everything one knows with a critical eye, even things which are dumbproof. I am not saying mmkhan is right though with his thesis, but I am at least treating him with respect.

On this forum, critical viewing of the Quranic passages has in many cases lead to a better understanding and some have solved inconsistency which was due to misinterpretation. People are not always right, but many times they are. If the idea is flawed it oftenly shows itself and the blessed and guided follower will see it.

And several of the members on this forum are quite skilled at Arabic and you can call them professionals. And uniting the thinking power across them is also boosting the outcome.

I would say that the Quran translations which are not tainted by traditional thinking are among the best ones around. Take a sectarian Quran translation and you will see many errors right away and thus is reflects the "professionalism" of these individuals.

I am not saying I am an expert in Arabic, I need lots of help interpreting the original language, but I do not rely on biased sources. I work together with English translations and the Arabic script simultaneously and occasionally seek enlightenment elsewhere. I trust God will lead me to the true interpretation as long as I am guided.

God bless you

I strongly believe that everyone here presented their understanding of a phenomenon from the knowledge that they discovered.

We believe that all phenomena are created in truth by Allah, the Creator. His creations are everywhere, around us and within us. We are descendants of scientists, who seek the truth on every existing phenomena created by Allah.

And He taught Adam the names - all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, "Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful." (2:31)

Knowledge is what we construct as meanings about an existing reality or a phenomenon.  Language is just a tool of communication to enable us to engage in symbolic interaction. What is important is to arrive at the truth, the exact meaning and understanding on that particular phenomenon. This thread is to discuss a phenomenon known as Muhammad.

I strongly believe that the Quran Arabic, in terms of its manifest symbols as Arabic words and the meanings to a particular phenomenon it represents, is the God?s language created in truth for those who seek His guidance.

Most of us are used to imagine Muhammad as a superhuman Arab man, lived 1400 years ago, who is a warrior, negotiator with God (to have five prayer times for his ummah), had many wives and able to predict the future (from hadith literature).

Brother MM Khan has presented what he believes to be the true meaning of the word that represents the phenomenon Muhammad. I respect his understanding and discovery. Some may find it hard to accept.

By the way Muhammad is still a messenger, that doesn?t change.

Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky? With it We then bring out produce of various colours. And in the mountains are tracts white and red, of various shades of colour, and black intense in hue. (35:27)

And among people and moving creatures and grazing livestock are various colors similarly. Those truly fear Allah, from among His servants, who have knowledge (l-ulama). Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Forgiving. (35:28). In this context, ulamas are those who study natural phenomena.

Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and leads it through springs in the earth? Then He causes to grow, therewith, produce of various colours: then it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow; then He makes it dry up and crumble away. Truly, in this, is a Message of remembrance to men of understanding. (39:21)

Of course it is. However within Sunni Islam there is a system to challenge this and there is not the easy acceptance of "whatever goes". Also, and advantage, a clear advantage, Sunni Islam has is that it has some clear principles and methods, which Quran-only lack.

However, it is not Sunni Islam that is under-discussion. We can make it so. But, right and wrongs of Sunni Islam have no bearing on this.

I am sorry, but when you deliberately set out to mislead with your two-penny's worth then that is severely problematic. Why would some pretend to have knowledge of something they clearly don't.

And the argument that the word "Muhammad" is not a name is build upon clear mistakes. And you cannot cover that up.

I am sorry to say, this kind of meaningless spiel doesn't work. I can easily prove mmKhan is wrong and to an extend have done so.

When you say:

"Brother MM Khan has presented what he believes to be the true meaning of the word that represents the phenomenon Muhammad. I respect his understanding and discovery. Some may find it hard to accept."

No he hasn't. he clearly hasn't. Mr Khan has basic issues of truth and honesty. So what is this "discovery" that you respect? Please do share in your own words. A summary?



"By the way Muhammad is still a messenger, that doesn?t change. "

So if this doesn't change, what is the point, what is this new discovery?



"I strongly believe that the Quran Arabic, in terms of its manifest symbols as Arabic words and the meanings to a particular phenomenon it represents, is the God?s language created in truth for those who seek His guidance."

Statements like this are virtually meaningless. What do you mean?

People like The_Chimp know only how to shout and claim others are wrong without able to prove it from alQuraan. They could not able to quote a single aayat to prove wrong. But they very well know how to call stupid, ignorant, meaningless sanctimony, horrendous mistakes, dishonest, untruthful, misguiding, I can prove him wrong, I have already proved him wrong, and the list goes on.... but still could not able to prove any of his points.

It is very easy for me to say the same about him, but then I will not be truthful as I don't know him.

What these people actually do is mentioned in 41:26.

41:26 And those who disbelieve say, "Do not listen to this Qur'an and speak noisily during it that perhaps you will overcome."

So, bring your prove to show me wrong instead of just babbling if you are truthful.

When you talk about Arabic and get the basics wrong. Then, it has nothing really to do with the Quran.

Sadly, this is not true either. For one thing - all the proof you have brought has been dismissed. And if you look back at my posts - I have and can still give references from the Quran.

However, making basic Arabic mistakes has not got much to do with the Quran.

But they very well know how to call stupid, ignorant, meaningless sanctimony, horrendous mistakes, dishonest, untruthful, misguiding, I can prove him wrong, I have already proved him wrong, and the list goes on.... but still could not able to prove any of his points.

Again Mr Khan - you are simply wallowing.

I have conclusively shown your Arabic mistakes.



Quote
It is very easy for me to say the same about him, but then I will not be truthful as I don't know him.

Sorry, but this is not how it works. I note that you have not spend any time in refuting - but in wallowing. And that really does speaks volumes. Also - not a single person, whose names you quoted above, have agreed with your position. Or jumped up and answer on your behalf. 

The support they show you is that you are their brother. I am not.



Quote
What these people actually do is mentioned in 41:26.

See my friend, what you do is far, far, far worse in my eyes. You use the Quran to justify. That is wrong. See - you have just implied I am a kafir! I have not done so - or even hinted at this against you.



Is it possible for you to answer simple questions? I mean, why do you speak about Arabic - when clearly you are unable to understand even the basics.



Quote
Bring your prove to show me wrong instead of just babbling if you are truthful.

I already have. Pretending otherwise will not help you.

Sorry, sister,

I did not mean to point out any lack in your post, I just saw the opportunity of pointing out what I did. I am sure you are aware and conscious of it. But, as I say, it seemed to me particularly to the point, because if we think tawheed means anything, then everything is coherent and harmony and sense will pervade everything that exists and speak to us if we listen.

You seem a very patient person. Best wishes.

Salaam

Peace sister,

Don't worry about it. I know what you mean. Thank you, that's nice of you to say.

May Allah shower you with blessings on the path that leads straight to Him.

Salam Zone,

I am sorry to say, this kind of meaningless spiel doesn't work. I can easily prove mmKhan is wrong and to an extend have done so.


Peace The_Chimp.

You have shown your true colors, the sunni character, calling others stupid, ignorant and their ideas meaningless, professing that you are the master of religion.

What do you expect to hear or read in a God Alone Quran Alone community forum? When you witness people discuss the term Muhammad, messenger, hadith, ayah, ulama, shirk, and other Quranic words, using the Quran as a guidance, which are phenomenal to us in becoming a true muslim.

So it is not surprising that you see people here share some basic principles such as:
Allah teach us the Quran
Allah guides us or whomever He wills
Allah knows who are in His straight path
Allah commanded us not to set up masters besides Him
Allah commanded us not to set up partners with Him
Allah said there will be no intercession
Allah commanded us to verify

If you have a better argument, bring forth as an alternative. I would like to see objectivity, consistency and accuracy in your argument with proofs. Stop belittling people who presents differing ideas from what you have.

And if you brought to those who were given the Book every ayat, they would not follow your qiblah. Nor will you be a follower of their qiblah. Nor would they be followers of one another's qiblah. So if you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, indeed, you would then be among the wrongdoers. (2:145)

And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided. (2:48)

O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Book which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah , His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray. (4:136)

Peace The_Chimp,

I actually believe that Muhammad was a man. If mmKhan wants to explore different possibilities, who am I to stop him? I know that I explore different ideas about Ramadan, Shaytan etc. We can all discuss here but it is much better and in the spirit of the Quran and the believer to keep a more civil tone. You said that we don't need to know Arabic to follow the central principles/be a 'simple believer', then you ask me which principles those are? They are the principles of Islam that one can follow without knowing Arabic - as you already agreed to.

I also listed some of the central principles in on the very quotes: believe in God, the last day, do good.

I really have not been following all of this, I read some things and I do not know if there are some flaws in what mmKhan is saying.

In terms of 'stupidity', as we are told not to name call, I would class that as going against the Quran. As well as the fact, it is not necessary. If mmKhan is being truly sincere and seeking Allah's swt guidance along the way, then he is simply seeking the truth as best he can. I am sorry if that answer is not good enough for you. Allah swt is the best Judge.

My point about the Quran and the so called 'beating' verse, was in relation to the point that I believe we don't need to know Arabic to understand the Quran or to find parts of the translations that stand out as more problematic. What is the language of the Quran, is a video I saw and I think the uploader makes some interesting points especially about the magnitude of the point that the Quran is for all mankind... not just Arabic speakers. Not just those most fluent in Arabic either.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLNNZG9Wky0

When we hear the Quran is it just that it speaks to us if we know Arabic, or does it speak to us on a deeper level? As a Muslim... I'm sure you know what I'm getting at with the deeper level part, i.e. the way in which the Quran is very moving when you listen to it in Arabic even if you cannot understand what all the words mean in Arabic itself.

I don't know what reference you are talking about but no  - it was not to you. I agree with you that Muhammad was a man and I agree with mmKhan that we don't need to know Arabic in order to understandthe Quran.

The Quran as a reminder: I explained that in my original post. My point is that we do not need to know Arabic to understand the main message of the Quran. We already know of the moral issues, the devotion and sincerity necessary, the logical conclusion that there is one God - with or without the Quran. Of course, the Quran is a blessing and a Reminder to that. So my point is even in translation, we can get at that message that we are already aware of and that we are being reminded about.

Do we need to know a much Arabic to understand any 'finer' points? Only Allah swt knows the answer to that. He bestows understanding and guidance.

I tried to keep this 'short and sweet' as they say and that's one the reasons I didn't quote you, but I found I should explain more. I hope you can appreciate that and that it does not become a source of contention.

Try concentrating on your words:

"You have shown your true colors, the sunni character"

In other words - you already have prejudice against over 1 billion people!

I am sorry - but that is far worse. I have specifically been against Mr. Khan and his views. Have you bothered to read the posts? I have been quite restraint aagainst someone who call me a "Kafir".

A meaningless ideas are just that - meaningless. Ignorance is ignorance. Stupidity is stupidity. Getting basics of Arabic wrong but obstinately advocating a view built upon wrong information is all three.

And I have not proceeded to imply anyone as Kafir.

Salam Mr Kahn,

I am sorry but this is plain wrong:

When you talk about Arabic and get the basics wrong. Then, it has nothing really to do with the Quran.

Salaam The_Chimp,

Did I talk about Arabic, really? When? Where? Why? Please take a look at how I have started by clicking here (http://free-minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=9604387.0). Do you find me talking about man-made Arabic grammar there? Please point me if you find it.

This is what I was talking, just reverse your sentence and see how it works. "It has nothing really to do with man-made Arabic grammar when we talk about alQuraan".

Quote
Sadly, this is not true either. For one thing - all the proof you have brought has been dismissed. And if you look back at my posts - I have and can still give references from the Quran.
Red: How? How are they dismissed, you just said I am wrong and we have to agree with you.

Blue: Please point me to them again, sorry I missed them.

However, making basic Arabic mistakes has not got much to do with the Quran.
Wake up brother! Just don't rush... I am discussing alQuraan not man-made Arabic grammar full of errors.

I am not strong enough to judge and deny aayaat of alQuraan based on man-made Arabic grammar. If you can, then please do, I don't have to do anything with it.

Quote
Again Mr Khan - you are simply wallowing.
This is because, you are claiming to be a sunni and I am not at all interested in discussing with any sects. Because they are already set their minds, so nothing can go through their throat. I have experienced it personally many many times. Sorry to say this, but it is you who said to be a sunni about yourself and also you have shown your anger against alQuraan aloners.

I am surprise to know that... then what is the purpose of alQuraan? Is it just to get 10 favors for each word read? I don't think so. If you understand the meaning of kafir, then you may agree. Yes, that is because, I am kafir of your deen.

Red: I am sure that alQuraan is the Book of Allah and there is a dialectical problem in it? :hmm

Peace.What I mean is not like this bro mmmkhan.

mmkhan looks like you're expert in arabic but?
Did you know if tanwin "un" is to make clear if that owner of the name is male/mudzakka or female/mussnat.

Example:
مُسلِمُ =muslimun (for male)
مُسْلِمَةٌ=muslimatun (for female)

فَاطِمَةُ=fathimatun (for female)
دَاوُدُ, يُوْسُفُ , etc

Evidence that you must see,mmkhan:

إِذْ قَالَ يُوسُفُ لِأَبِيهِ يَا أَبَتِ إِنِّي رَأَيْتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوْكَبًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ رَأَيْتُهُمْ لِي سَاجِدِينَ

See the word Yusuf also using dhammah so it's impossible if Yusuf is not a name.

وَإِذْ يَرْفَعُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ الْقَوَاعِدَ مِنَ الْبَيْتِ وَإِسْمَاعِيلُ رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

Look Ibrahim's name also using dhammah too.

مَرَرْتُ بغُلاَمِ زَيْدٍ الفَاضِلِ

The word zaid is using kasrah tanwin, but Zaid is not only noun but a male which became noun.So the word Zaid is a mudzakkar name.It's strange if the word Zaid isn't a name.

Tanween comes on ALL INDEFINITE NOUNS - except those that are Ghair Munsarif, upon whom Tanween is not applicable. For example the name Ibrahim - it doesn't take tanween becuase it is Gahir Munsarif - as non-Arabic names do not accept tanween. As all names are nouns - tanween occurs on them. Just because tanween is upon the name Muhammad that does NOT mean it isn't a name.

Good point by brother the Chimp

Mr mmKhan - why do I get the feeling you have some other hidden agenda?

I am sorry, you what? "I actually believe that Muhammad was a man. If mmKhan wants to explore different possibilities" Read that back to yourself!

Look - discussion is one thing. Deliberate dishonesty is something else.  I am have not objected the having such discussions in the 1st place. No - the honesty and the truth of it.

Quote
My point about the Quran and the so called 'beating' verse, was in relation to the point that I believe we don't need to know Arabic to understand the Quran

Look, disagree strongly with this and I do find this as sheer nonsense and stupidity. We do need the Arabic to understand the Quran! That is common sense! I cannot disguise that.



Quote

I'm sure you know what I'm getting at with the deeper level part, i.e. the way in which the Quran is very moving when you listen to it in Arabic even if you cannot understand what all the words mean in Arabic itself.

If you cannot "get" Quran at primary level, I doubt you can get "deeper depths". Yes some non-Muslims hear it and their heart is changed. But that is not under discussion.

Mr Khan was using Arabic. he started its use, hence why the discussion arose. Why is he building an Arabic langauge argument, when he is not even aware of the basics? It is a perfectly valid question?



Quote
I don't know what reference you are talking about but no  - it was not to you. I agree with you that Muhammad was a man and I agree with mmKhan that we don't need to know Arabic in order to understandthe Quran.

To me, that is completely wrong. We do need to know Arabic. Doesn't Quran itself say it is in Arabic? Else you cannot understand one word of Quran.

And please go back and look this up. Why was Mr Khan building an argument out of the language of Quran, when he does not understand it? I would really appreciate an answer.




Quote
The Quran as a reminder: I explained that in my original post. My point is that we do not need to know Arabic to understand the main message of the Quran.

So how else do you understand it?



Quote
We already know of the moral issues, the devotion and sincerity necessary, the logical conclusion that there is one God - with or without the Quran.

In other words, because you were brought up in a Muslim house hold and you got that from you parents. Sorry, but this is a circular argument, a likely paradox.



Quote
Of course, the Quran is a blessing and a Reminder to that. So my point is even in translation, we can get at that message that we are already aware of and that we are being reminded about.

All this is somewhat off topic. You cannot understand Quran without the language. As you have yourself said [see above] external perceptions have nothing to do with the Quran. Hence you did not achieve them from Quran. So, to read Quran you need to know Arabic. I am sorry, but that is just common sense!

What you are saying is this:

We do not need a Maths book to know about Maths and its usefulness. However to learn and apply Maths. One does need to learn what the Maths book says.

Hence:

We do not need the Quran book to know about God. However to learn and apply God's instructions. We do need to learn what the Quran says. And we can only get to this knowledge, by learning Arabic.



Quote
Do we need to know a much Arabic to understand any 'finer' points? Only Allah swt knows the answer to that. He bestows understanding and guidance.

Brother, you are confusing the issues here. If the 'finer points' relate to language, then we do need Arabic. As was the case with Mr. Khan's argument.

Why did he start down this path of Arabic. Then when he is pulled up short and is now attempting to move the goal posts by saying that Arabic isn't needed.

Peace Chimp,

If this is going off topic, maybe we should leave it. I was not really brought up in a religious household. Plus, I also left Islam for a bit and then came back. But the point about already knowing morality etc is because God has imbued us with a level of understanding, that is why the Quran is also a Reminder (and a confirmation) - of what we already know (and what has gone before.)

And I am not a brother. I don't know why you are asking me 'how else do you understand the Quran?' - if you don't know Arabic, what would you do? Ask Allah swt for guidance, seek out many translations. Then you can start look at the transliteration where possible as you learn bits of terminology.

I have been patient and courteous - whilst you have implied I am a kafir and whatnot . . what was it? Dumb, blind, etc. Overwhelmingly Muslims have been Sunni for the life of Islam. So it is you who is the sect.

Red: Did I say that? You see, how you are in rush and making baseless conclusions? Please scroll above and see again what I wrote. Your rush and conclusions are making your wrong, so, please be patient and seek Allah help on every step you take.

Nope, my dear Mr Khan. This is a baseless accusation. You will realise it:

"Also - not a single person, whose names you quoted above, have agreed with your position. Or jumped up and answer on your behalf."

Read this again. All those people you were thanking:

"Thanks to supportpeacenotwar, huruf, man of faith and zone for your kind words. May Allah bless you."

Did not stand by your pet theory that Muhammad is a title.

So where is this baseless conclusion that i have made?



Quote
I am happy to see that :yes And my ultimate support is from Allah, alhamduliAllah. :hail

Everyone claims this. A point of absolutely zero importance and value. The Almighty sustains even those who do not agree he exists!



Quote
I am surprise to know that... then what is the purpose of alQuraan? Is it just to get 10 favors for each word read? I don't think so. If you understand the meaning of kafir, then you may agree. Yes, that is because, I am kafir of your deen.

See - you are happy enough to call others "Kafir"! I doubt the almighty intended a small band of people to attain the "truth" 1,500 years after the advent of Islam. As you imply. Your religion is completely new.

Again??? :o

Where am I talking about man-made Arabic?

So which Arabic were you talking about? And what is "Tanween"? I know what it is in er . . . man made Arabic.

Peace.What I mean is not like this bro mmmkhan.

mmkhan looks like you're expert in arabic but?
Did you know if tanwin "un" is to make clear if that owner of the name is male/mudzakka or female/mussnat.

Example:
مُسلِمُ =muslimun (for male)
مُسْلِمَةٌ=muslimatun (for female)

فَاطِمَةُ=fathimatun (for female)
دَاوُدُ, يُوْسُفُ , etc

Evidence that you must see,mmkhan:

إِذْ قَالَ يُوسُفُ لِأَبِيهِ يَا أَبَتِ إِنِّي رَأَيْتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوْكَبًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ رَأَيْتُهُمْ لِي سَاجِدِينَ

See the word Yusuf also using dhammah so it's impossible if Yusuf is not a name.

وَإِذْ يَرْفَعُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ الْقَوَاعِدَ مِنَ الْبَيْتِ وَإِسْمَاعِيلُ رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

Look Ibrahim's name also using dhammah too.

مَرَرْتُ بغُلاَمِ زَيْدٍ الفَاضِلِ

The word zaid is using kasrah tanwin, but Zaid is not only noun but a male which became noun.So the word Zaid is a mudzakkar name.It's strange if the word Zaid isn't a name.

Good point by brother the Chimp
 :& :& I hope you're not Christian misionaries who disguised as Muslim like in another online Muslim forum did.

Mr Khan has already said he is not an expert of Arabic. Man made Arabi that is! It appears he has a different version. God knows, what its rules are!

Peace Chimp,

If this is going off topic, maybe we should leave it. I was not really brought up in a religious household. Plus, I also left Islam for a bit and then came back. But the point about already knowing morality etc is because God has imbued us with a level of understanding, that is why the Quran is also a Reminder (and a confirmation) - of what we already know (and what has gone before.)

And I am not a brother. I don't know why you are asking me 'how else do you understand the Quran?' - if you don't know Arabic, what would you do? Ask Allah swt for guidance, seek out many translations. Then you can start look at the transliteration where possible as you learn bits of terminology.

Sorry Sister!

But using translations IS relying on Arabic. Only then you are moving to second had resources. I would have thought this reliance on translations would be abhorrent. As for seeking out guidance, doesn't that lead back to Arabic. As the Quran itself says it is in Arabic. Hence, learn Arabic.

"Then you can start look at the transliteration where possible as you learn bits of terminology."

Again, this is going back to learning Arabic!



It does appear that we are not really in conflict. Knowing Arabic is essential.

Plus, I also left Islam for a bit and then came back.

I hope you don't end like this verse sister  :(

4:137 Those who believed, then rejected, then believed, then rejected,
then they increased in rejection; God was not to forgive them nor
to guide them to the path.

And I am not a brother. I don't know why you are asking me 'how else do you understand the Quran?' - if you don't know Arabic, what would you do? Ask Allah swt for guidance, seek out many translations. Then you can start look at the transliteration where possible as you learn bits of terminology.

As who do know nothing about arab and don't want to know about it, then I recommend you for reading only this translations:

-Free Mind Translation
-Reformist Transaltion
-http://www.sublimequran.org/
-Rashad Khalifa's or another Quranist translations

Remember only read translations by Quran aloners, because this translation is free sectarian and you dont need to worry anymore.

Islam is not about Arab language, fatwas, the more important is your faith, your heart.

2:177 Piety is not to turn your faces towards the east and the west, but pious is one who believes in God and the Last Day, and the angels, and the Book, and the prophets, and who gives money out of love to the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer, and those who ask, and to free the slaves; and who upholds the contact prayer, and who contributes towards purification; and
those who keep their pledges when they make a pledge, and those who are patient in the face of hardship and adversity and when
in despair. These are the ones who have been truthful, and these are the righteous

Peace Chimp,

Seeking out guidance could be many many different things, first is with Allah swt who can guide us on how to use our reason and logic, as well as some more 'intuitive' knowledge. Other ways could include finding out more about other people's interpretations, such as coming on here and another way could include finding out more about some of the Arabic terminology in the Quran, yes. This would also go back to the point that the Quran is for the whole of mankind... everyone. So knowledge of Arabic can help but I wouldn't call it essential.

'You alone we worship and from You alone we seek aid' - from Surah Fatiha. Whatever we find and whatever we understand of the Quran, we know that it is ultimately a journey that we constantly ask God swt for help with and that it is God swt who grants us knowledge - and no I'm not talking direct revelations.

I could go into poetic things about the language of the Quran but I don't think that's necessary and like you said, we are going off topic. We should leave it, at least on this thread.

Salam Mr. Kahn,

Yes, Read: "I am wondering how this can be solved. I never found any names in AlQuraan ending with this tanween"

This is talking about Arabic.
Salaam brother, [this is second time you wrote my name wrongly willingly or unwillingly.]

You are really funny, I am sorry to say that... but did you understand what I wrote above? Am I talking about alQuraan or man-made Arabic grammar?

Quote
What is and isn't man-made Arabic? To this day - I am only aware of 1 Arabic. Is there an alternative? Where? So I can learn it too. Does this Arabic have different grammar rules?
Don't you know of other Arabic? Sad, anyways, let me tell you, there are differences between Saudi Arabic, Syrian Arabic, Misr Arabic, Lebanon Arabic, etc. etc...

But I was talking about Arabic of alQuraan, which is different from all.

No - I am not going to do that. This is plainly dishonest. If you wish to start again. Then in a separate post please state you point clearly [nothing else] then I will answer.
Fine, I will do the same for you, inshaAllah.

How do you pronounce these funny looking letters? And separately could you also give 5 errors within this "man-made Arabic"?
No - I am not going to do that.

Brother, please understand, if you do something like kafirs do, then surely you will fall under those aayaats that shows their behavior, so it is not me who is calling you kafir, but Allah is categorizing it. Was it not that Allah said so? Or do you think I made that aayat myself? Check, aayat no. is already given.

Peace Earthdom,

Thanks for your concern, I place my trust in Allah swt and I believe the way I was guided back is almost a sign in itself. That verse you mention about leaving faith, then coming back several times, that could also be about people who call themselves Muslim but they don't really believe and don't really follow through. When I 'left' Islam, I still believed Islam had truth to it, and was a great faith, my personal story is not necessary here though. So i don't know whether technically I believed in some of the Quran and Islam even then... it was a while ago so I can't recall everything entirely but Allah swt knows best.

Yes, Islam is about your faith, intent and actions.

Zone,

Try concentrating on your words:

"You have shown your true colors, the sunni character"

In other words - you already have prejudice against over 1 billion people!

I am sorry - but that is far worse. I have specifically been against Mr. Khan and his views. Have you bothered to read the posts? I have been quite restraint aagainst someone who call me a "Kafir".

A meaningless ideas are just that - meaningless. Ignorance is ignorance. Stupidity is stupidity. Getting basics of Arabic wrong but obstinately advocating a view built upon wrong information is all three.

And I have not proceeded to imply anyone as Kafir.



Have you been following this thread? The last thing I expect to see is making mistakes in Arabic and building arguments upon mistakes. Sorry, but have you missed all that. And are you simply trying to "abuse" me for being Sunni? That is what your comments seem to imply.



So why are you belittle me? It is clear you have not followed the thread and you are not aware of the argument so far. This is about mmKhan making blatant errors and still claiming credence for his views.

What has this got to do with:

Have the decency and the good grace to be truthful and honest and at least follow the thread, IF you are going to comment. Else do not bother, purely on the basis of bigotry [evidence read the 1st objection above] .



And quoting verses is no argument.

Peace.

When two conceptual ideas differ, they represent many differing positions, frame of references, premises, methodologies, parameters and origins of knowledge. It just prove that Quran and Hadith do not match, so same to sunnahAllah and sunnahrasul. You your way me mine.

As I said, please have the decency to follow the argument/thread else not comment. It is clear you haven't. The only reason, it appears, you are having a go at me is due to your prejudice, and nothing more. 

" It just prove that Quran and Hadith do not match"

How? This have not been an argument about Hadith and Quran? So how does this proof come about?



Like I keep saying, this has got nothing to do with:

"two conceptual ideas differ, they represent many differing positions, frame of references, premises, methodologies, parameters and origins of knowledge"

I am sorry for shouting. But talking to you is turning out to be like banging one's head against the wall.

There is only 1 Arabic when Quran is mentioned. Just 1.

Fine, I will do the same for you, inshaAllah.

I will wait - and look forward to it.

No - I am not going to do that.

Why not? If your Arabic is different, then why are you not going to share it?

In my er. . . man made Arabic, they are vocalized as Alif, Baa, Taa, Thaa. . . etc.

What is this Arabic of yours. Where is it? Please stop playing games. I have asked you plenty of time. And this is going nowhere.

The only Arabic I know is Classical Arabic and its modern variation MSA. However there is only little difference between the two. As for dialectic Arabic. That is NOT under discussion.

We come back to the same point repeatedly, sister. If you do not understand Quran through the language, how els do you understand it? There is no other way. You might cover your argument with extraneous points, but we come to this. It is common sense that to read a book, one needs to know the language it is written is. hence it is essential. To say otherwise is "stupidity".

Salaam mmKhan,

Yes, very true, and one can know Arabic very well they won't appreciate the message of the Quran. There are ex-Muslims who know Arabic for example. As it states in the Quran, Allah swt grants many different types of knowledge. The Prophets like Jacob were given what appears to be an intuitive knowledge - such as when Jacob senses Yusuf and people tell him Yusuf is not here, but Yusuf's coat is in brought in. This may not be the type of knowledge we are given, but I think it shows there are 'intuitive' ways of understanding things. I hope that makes sense!

Not particularly this topic although it is highly controversial a theory. Sounds very far fetched that people for over 1400 years been roaming the Earth falsely believing their prophet was named Muhammad while he was not.

Salaamun alayka,

BLUE: You know what a highly controversial theory is? That it is also a the proper name of the first man who received The Quran
GREEN: No you did not say this  :nope:
you were Christian before no? How many years do they believe according to their own sources that Jesus son Mary is God and His son?

Quote
Although, hadith mainly refers to him as Allah's apostle and not by his name most of the time.
You think they only name him Allah's apostle? He has according to some of them 99 names just as much as how many names they think Allah has.
here a link with his names: http://www.ezsoftech.com/islamic/infallible1f.asp
There is at least 1 member here on this forum who calls him Lord, that is highly controversial don't you think. 

Quote
Well, not matter if your reasoning would be true or not it is still viable to refer to him as Muhammad, if but because it is his title as you claim. Just remember many names in the middle-east have another meaning than simply a name, for example, both Hassan and Hussein have other uses as words, so with your reasoning these people cannot be real persons?

I think you missed the point.
How Mohammed is used in the ayaats of the Quran is not used as a proper name. Just like you can use hassan or mohsin as not proper names.

Quote
I am sure the prophet of Quran is named in the scripture. Maybe his name was Ahmad and changed to Muhammad like Ibrahim was only called Ibram before messengership.

RED: maybe that is just one of many the possibilities for me now.
BLUE: You know that your source for this claim is for me a  :nope:

Quote
You tend to get it wrong though with my and other's tendency to want to stick with the name or nickname Muhammad, that it is due to remnants of idolatry and we want to stubbornly defend this posture until the end. I could not care less about the name of the prophet of Quran, but it is natural that one uses a name to refer to something if but as a codename.  We, humans, tend to give names to all sorts of things for easier reference and "prophet of Quran" is an awkward solution.

BLUE: I agree, such person does not exist  ;) just joking, I know what you mean. For me as long as I can't proof from the Quran what his/her/their name was then I don't like to give him/her/them a name.

Quote
Give me the true name of the prophet and I will gladly change my usage. You said earlier that the true name might be right in front of our eyes so keep looking and later try to convince me about your discovery. Until then I will use Muhammad if not because this is the way God refers to him (and as you seem to claim, other apostles).

GREEN: sorry don't know

Rest:  :handshake:

Quote
Philosophies are always appreciated, brother Bender, but until your theory gains foothold and other evidential backup it is still too controversial to believe. It is like a conspiracy theory. Many people believe you just do everything to nullify the religion of traditional muslims, just like the people around here who cut in the practices of praying, fasting and the likes. I am sure this may not be your intent but you are wary that the Quran is 1400 years old and not correctly understood like the ants of the valley that brother noshirk solved the riddle and meant something else.

How many things do you do different from the Sunni's? why is that not controversial?

Keep looking and I am open to further philosophies, but until then Muhammad is Muhammad.

That is the remarks you made in this thread. I am sure it must be based on your knowledge and wisdom. So I am among the stupid, ignorant, supporter of falsehood. I am okay with that. What else have I not been called by sunnis? Kafr, satan, the demolisher of truth. I am sure when they said this it is not baseless. It must be from the knowledge that they have, the mastery of religion and the Arabic language and the voice of the majority one billion people. If it is true I deserve it. So what?

Where? Do point it out. This is simply shows your prejudice. And that is it. I have highlighted several dishonest statements of yours. And you have not bothered to answer. You did not bother to read the thread or follow the argument. Just had a go at me! So, you have no room to talk.

Yes. You have ventured to support falsehood. I have proved it. And now you are turning around trotting off. Good luck

What makes you think I care what others have been calling you? Frankly I am not surprised. Look at the way you behave! I am sorry you have an aversion to truth. But I cannot do anything about it.

Well Good bye and be on your way!

Sister,

It does not make sense. You are confusing the issues again. Faith is something different. It is absolutely essential to know Arabic. And there are no two ways about it.

Peace brother,

So would you say that the Quran is mainly for Arabs and fluent Arabic speakers?

GREEN: No you did not say this  :nope:
you were Christian before no? How many years do they believe according to their own sources that Jesus son Mary is God and His son?
You think they only name him Allah's apostle? He has according to some of them 99 names just as much as how many names they think Allah has.
here a link with his names: http://www.ezsoftech.com/islamic/infallible1f.asp
There is at least 1 member here on this forum who calls him Lord, that is highly controversial don't you think. 

I think you missed the point.
How Mohammed is used in the ayaats of the Quran is not used as a proper name. Just like you can use hassan or mohsin as not proper names.

RED: maybe that is just one of many the possibilities for me now.
BLUE: You know that your source for this claim is for me a  :nope:

BLUE: I agree, such person does not exist  ;) just joking, I know what you mean. For me as long as I can't proof from the Quran what his/her/their name was then I don't like to give him/her/them a name.

GREEN: sorry don't know

Rest:  :handshake:

How many things do you do different from the Sunni's? why is that not controversial?

How do you call this in Arabic? ayaat no?

Quote
That is beginning of verse verse 48:29. All it says is Muhammad is Messenger of Allah. There is ABSOLUTELY no indication that the word Muhammad is a title of some kind.

Ok thank you for your translation.
Now is that statement valid today or not?

Quote
As for the verse 26:105 that is simple and very clear

"The people of Noah denied the messengers"

Noah was the ONLY messenger sent to his people. A messenger point not only to Allah  but to the messengers sent before him. Hence, his people denied him and those before him.

BLUE: I hope that I did not understood this correctly
RED: you see, you can not take the ayaat as it is but you have to invent your words in it by force. I already gave you ayaats were BEFORE and AFTER is used.
GREEN: there is nothing to hence, just a hence of your own wish.

Quote
This is evidenced in the next verse:

"When their brother Noah said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?"

You will not find a verse where any more messengers are mentioned addressing tribes OTHER THAN Noah. What does that tell you? Noah was the only messenger sent to his people
yes correct, Noah was the only one sent to his people but why then 26:105 "The people of Noah denied the messengers"
And pleeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase don't come back with sentences with the word BEFORE in them, thx.

mmKhan,

huh? I don't think you know much Arabic at all. Do you?

Tanween comes on ALL INDEFINITE NOUNS - except those that are Ghair Munsarif, upon whom Tanween is not applicable. For example the name Ibrahim - it doesn't take tanween becuase it is Gahir Munsarif - as non-Arabic names do not accept tanween. As all names are nouns - tanween occurs on them. Just because tanween is upon the name Muhammad that does NOT mean it isn't a name.

So how does that fit with: Arabic is essential for knowing the Quran? Arabs, those who know Arabic and/or classical arabic are on a better footing and according to you, they have the number 1 essential thing for knowing the Quran.

Some of here would say the number 1 thing you need is prayer to Allah swt.

Peace Bender,

Yes. I used to be Christian or what to say, although I was unitarian, I did not believe in Jesus' divinity. I am not defending the belief in the trinity which I felt was ignorant back then already. I am still in the slightly dangerous seat of favoring Jesus, but it is a healthy admiration I think. By no means I say thank jesus or things like that or believe in any intercession whatsoever.

You got me wrong, brother Bender, I did not defend the validity of the prophet's name with my utterance of the mentions of apostle for Muhammad in hadith. Well, in fact I tried to defend your stand a little.

Brother, I meant by controversial that it is very new and here is no big foundation to go on so far if your theory happened to actually be true. Controversial means it arises intense discussions and attention because it is difficult to believe. It does not say that something being controversial cannot be true.

However, it seems like The_Chimp has a point when it comes to his remarks on the claim that Muhammad was only a title, although I disagree that one should let his tone become harsh against those who may be committing an error. I would like to see the discussion on more friendly and islamic terms and that we could peacefully find a good answer to the issue.

Not defending anyone I am thinking that we should remember what is written in the Quran about proper conduct. Even disbelievers should be met respectfully. We are only showing our fellow Sunni brother that we are no better than his fellowship.

About Muhammad, Hassan etc 's use in Quran I did not misunderstand brother. I mentioned it as an example for us. I mentioned them because I know they are used also as common words.

I know my source for Ibrahim and Ibram is not valid for you. I just wanted to draw a hypothetical parallel. Ahmad it mentioned in Quran, which is basically of same root as Muhammad. Ibram and Ibrahim would also be the same root obviously and that was the parallel I wanted to make. Even if you doubt a source you can think hypothetically and even unreliable sources can carry a potential partial Truth enough to verify something pure.

I pray with prostration and bowing and some other meanings interpreted from Quran. That I do not consider following Sunni islam and the similarity is on a very superficial level to be honest. I searched deeper into the roots of the behavior of prostration and it has broader applicability than only religious purposes in ancient times. Even to bow your head is a sort of semi-prostration while going down on your head is the deepest kind of respect you can show someone. It is more than a ritual for me as you so kindly refer it as but as an obeisance paying homage.

I know I still use the disputable rakah pattern, but it is under investigation by me. I am checking and while I have found signs of invention I have not yet been able to prove it to myself. The roots of the trouble I have been looking for in hadith as off lately and it indeed looks as if the pattern commonly used by traditional muslims is an invention. I may soon change my ways. It seems there is no such pattern but all that counts is your intention and how devoted you would like to be. In the meantime I know I am not to blame for following the pattern in ignorance as I commit no idolatry. Last traces of following traditional islam I guess and I need to look somehow like others when I need to pray here in public in Iran.

Peace be with you brother Bender. No fighting intended.

God bless

Peace Family,

Tanween does not always indicate indefiniteness; tanween is used with people's
proper names and those are always definite nouns. This is just one of the
peculiarities of Arabic.
Examples  Muhammad or muhammad(un) مُحَمَّدٌ
 Ali  "aliyy(un) عَلِيٌّ

Tanween is NOT used for proper names of foreign origin that have more than
three letters.

The only definite singular nouns that take tanween are usually people's first names.

Structure: emphatic passive participle مُفَعَّلٌ

Meaning: much thanked, much praised

 
The name Muhammad can also appear in compound first names, like:

مُحَمَّد عَلِيّ

Many male proper names which are derived from nouns or adjectives have
(tanween) as their final vowel even though they are DEFINITE.

Example: حَامِدٌ is just ?Hamid?, and not ?a Hamid?

Note: Male names have tanween and hence have (-un) sound in the end.

God Bless

   :peace:

Peace The_Chimp,

You are right that Sunni islam was not under discussion, but since you referred to the issues with Quran alone I took the liberty of highlighting flaws with your fellowship too.

Your "advantages" can also be disadvantages as you require consensus which may not always be right due to the hierarchical system of yours. Add over-reliance on hadith for guidance as a further intensifier of the disadvantageous perspective.

Without any better knowledge on the issue and your elaboration on the word usage in Arabic I insist that it is as you say regarding Muhammad. I was very skeptical to begin with, but now it seems even more unlikely. I felt that where the word Muhammad occurs in the Arabic discourse, it can never be any other than a name.

You can treat someone who is wrong with respect too, the Quran shows that possibility pretty clearly. I am not defending mmkhan's alleged bad language and sectarian accusations however. We must all prove we are muslims.

I have limited ability to link to other threads at the moment. However, I can agree with you that there are threads were people are a bit dangerously daring, for example, discussions on prayers and fasting where I do not agree at all. The Quran seems pretty clear on the topics discussed and yet it seems disputed somehow. Worth noting is that this is a free-minded Internet forum though, although taken a Quran only approach is not really bound to any sect or thinking. You choose yourself what you want to soak up.

I have said it before, but I can say it to a Sunni brother too: "Follow the best and ignore the rest".

I know there are very good articles hidden in the mess somewhere. I have read a whole bunch of good threads over the 5 months I have been a member. I think anyone can appreciate some of them, even a muslim with traditional thinking and who does not want to leave their ways.

Prejudiced over sectarian English translations of Quran? Well, I am surely rightly so, no offense intended. I prefer Quran translations without brackets and parentheses (for readability they are okay, but not for preconceived understandings). Adding O Muhammad where it does not exist in the Arabic script is not okay as well as many other examples.

Literal or at least translations not bound to a particular sect are the best ones in my opinion. You cannot come across the perfect translation because there is none, but you can have as neutral translation as possible. As you said, learning Arabic is the best solution and I am doing that on a small scale although it is not all I am doing in this life. I am using Zekr (program) with three translations at the moments plus Arabic text and an Arabic dictionary.

I do not claim I know much Arabic although I can read the script and understand some words and some minor grammatical rules. Apart from your belief I believe that God can enlighten even those with minor knowledge of His language of revelation.

Biased sources are those who twist the translations of Quran so that it does not reflect the original nature of it. There is no unbiased source, but less biased ones in my opinion. Even my more trusted Quran translations contain errors where I have to think for myself.

Anyway, I hope you understand that I am not hostile to your choice of calling yourself Sunni muslim. I hope you understand my reason for disliking some translations of Quran based on what I wrote. I wish all people on Earth could show a muslim-like behavior and there could be eternal peace, but I guess I have to wait and hope I get admitted to Paradise.

Peace be with you, always. Hope God will make it happen if it is according to His will.

God bless you

Ibrahim was a Hebrew name, that means he was not an Arab according to brother Chimp. Hence it does not take tanween. If he was non-Arab, why he went to Mecca? Were there people who spoke his language or speak English like today? :hmm

Then Nooh was of Arab origin. And A3ad and Shuaib also... Oh I forgot Loot, they all has tanween on their names. MashaAllah, I learn Arabic grammar today... it is really easy. You all can try it. Where ever you find tanween on any name, remember it is Arabic name, be it Kitaab or Baqara or any other...

In my opinion nothing is more enlightening than going through a journey of self discovery though the topic/issue is not new and highly controversial. The truth is out there.

Something for us to ponder:

And when it is said to them, "Follow what Allah has sent down," they say, "Rather, we will follow that upon which we found our fathers." Even if Satan was inviting them to the punishment of the Blaze?  (31:21)

But those who disbelieve - for them is misery, and He will waste their deeds. That is because they disliked what Allah sent down, so He rendered worthless their deeds (47:8-9)

When those who disbelieved had put into their hearts chauvinism - the chauvinism of the time of ignorance. But Allah sent down His tranquillity upon His Messenger and upon the believers and imposed upon them the word of righteousness, and they were more deserving of it and worthy of it. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing. (48:26)

You serve not besides Him except names you have named them, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. Legislation is not but for Allah. He has commanded that you serve not except Him. That is the correct Deen/System, but most of the people do not know. (12:40)

They are not but names you have named them - you and your forefathers - for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow not except assumption and what their souls desire, and there has already come to them from their Lord guidance. (53:23)

And do not pursue  that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart - about all those will be questioned. (17:36)

Salaamun a3laika Zone,

Thanks for the aayaat bro.

Red: Very true! I agree with you :handshake: but majority of people don't understand this. They think, they are not allowed to discover anything. If they understand what PATH means in اِہۡدِ نَا الصِّرَاطَ الۡمُسۡتَقِیۡمَ, that will be easy for them to realize that how enlightening are the discoveries. Because on PATH we have to keep on walking, we cannot stop anywhere. Hope these people may understand, inshaAllah.


May Allah increase our knowledge and guide us on His path :pr

You are welcome bro.  :handshake:

From my experience, I did face challenges in walking on the straight path in eagerness to discover truth and understand how it felt when antagonized. Also as humans I did err in the process. Keep the spirit high with good intention. To Allah alone we seek help, guidance and mercy.

"Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people." (2:286)

Certainly did Allah confer favor upon the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His ayats and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, although they had been before in manifest error. (3:164)

It is nice not to rush, as per 10:109 we are asked to be patient until Allah judges for us, so it is always better to be patient and wait for Allah judgement. AlhamduliAllah, I always try to follow it. :)

How do you discern between who is right and who is wrong?

Peace wrkmmn,

First, we ourselves must seek knowledge thru patience and supplication.
We will need to gain familiarity with the subjects of interest to us.  This
knowledge will enable us to narrow down the possible answers to consistant
sensible choices.  We must develop a keen sense of judgement so that those
who are advising us are "adding" to and not munipulating our knowledge.

Secondly, those who we take advice or counsel from must have a proven
track record which should include integrity as a character trait.

In Addition, there is nothing wrong with a second opinion to comtemplate.
Trust your instincts, and be a good listener, think and do not be afraid of the answer.


God Bless

The question that most of us ask now, arose before during the time of Muhammad s.a.w; preaching the words of God onto Arabia. Was Muhammad mentioned? This was the question by inhabitants of Arabia towards Jews that embraced Islam. And if we refer to the claim by past Jewish converts, they had quote verses from Isaiah 42.

Lets look at the passages in Isaiah. God address His chosen servants with their names, and in the prophesied verse we see God mention clearly the prophet?s name. Some examples of God mentioning His servant by name.

(My Servant Isaiah, My Servant Eliakim, David My Servant, Jacob My Servant, My Servant Israel, and so in Isaiah 42:1 , God specifically mention My Servant Ahmad)

In Isaiah 42:1, it is deemed not a coincidence upon seeing the writing of both אתמך (Atmc) אחמד (Ahmd). And the word before אתמך (Atmc), is עבדי (Abdi~My Servant). For indeed, it is indicating Ahmad; Abdullah (Ahmad; Servant of God).

Not to mention אתמך (Atmc) happen to be a special term foretelling the coming of a righteous man and is used only ONCE throughout the entire Book. [could this be a copying error or an intended error?]

~~
The prophecy tells about Ahmad; ?Servant of God? whom will war to correct the wrongs and bringing judgement based on the law of God. He will liberate act of worshiping molten images and thus Arabia (wilderness desert, villages and cities) will glorify God since then. As can be seen today, Arabia are worshiping,praising God and singing words of God daily. Inhabitants from all around the world gather there and voice out loud their praise to God.

And we continue reading Isaiah 42:18 ? 25; God remind the ?blind and deaf? about the wrath of God towards Children of Israel, whom neglect the message brought by past Servant of God.

And not to repeat; the same mistake upon the coming of the new Servant of God

[Quran 43:3] We have rendered it an ARABIC Quran, that you may understand.

[Quran 13:37] We revealed these laws in ARABIC, and if you ever acquiesce to their wishes, after this knowledge has come to you, you will have no ally, nor a protector, against God.

[Quran 20:113] We thus revealed it, an ARABIC Quran, and we cited in it all kinds of prophecies, that they may be saved, or it may cause them to take heed.


[Quran 26:195] In a perfect ARABIC language ..
.
[Quran 46:12] Before this, the book of Moses provided guidance and mercy. This too is a scripture that confirms, in ARABIC, to warn those who transgressed, and to give good news to the righteous.

Contrary to the assertion that no proper name is used in the Quran that ends in tanween, we find هُودٌ , صَالِحٌ , شُعَيْبٌ and - albeit not the name of a prophet - زَيْدٌ .

Notwithstanding this, nunation, or the lack thereof, is no measure of a word being classed as a proper name.

"Muhammad" is used as a name of a man in the Quran, and it would take a considerable amount of contextual contortion to assemble a hypothesis contrary to this.

Fortunately or unfortunately I don't have any evidence, not a single aayat that says that AlQuraan was given to Muhammad. Why there is no such aayat if it was given to him?

All explanations, comments, suggestions, critics, advises, support are welcome.

I do not understand the obsession with the name Muhammad. No matter called Muhammad or not, there was a man which the Quran was narrated to/about. Unless you have a better alternative what the fuss about it and why not call him Muhammad disregarding if it is used for praiseworthy or not. He needs a name, right?

All important Messengers in history had names clearly laid forth and why not the Messenger that received the Quran? The Quran hints at that the Quran was written by hand and by a human.

It is madness in my opinion.

Salaam,

Well. Quran is written by someone's hand, but not this person's own words. The Book was gradually released to this individual's memory and written down. This is at least the common interpretation.

The Quran hints at that it was not sent down from Heaven, but says even if it was people would not believe.

Divine inspiration is a complicated topic for discussion but this is likely what happened to Mr. Muhammad about 1400 years ago and he suddenly with little effort begun to know this information he wrote down. When you receive this kind of inspiration you get almost like an 'aha' sensation.

I also suppose that Muhammad may have been almost like in a trance state when he was writing the book. Like partially under alien control as in science fiction movies.

It is pretty obvious that he did not write his own words if you believe in the mathematical composition of Quran as it would have taken an astronomical amount of attempts to get the combinations right. Even with a computer today it would be difficult. But he had only paper or parchment to write on and he would have needed to start over countless times because of mistakes and he had no calculator. "Anti-code" proponents need not to reply to this as it is not the aim of this post to discuss.

Anyway, part of the test is to believe in the Quran because it was not directly sent down from God but "dictated" to Muhammad as a mediator who wrote down it, to put it in a simplified way. But Quran is the only text which is the exact wordings of God except the revelation to Moses on Mount Sinai.

Lately I have begun to ponder whether God would allow someone to change anything from the original Quran or if it is exactly the way it was those years ago. Well, it has known changes such as the added symbols to make reading easier and and scribe mistakes such as wrong letters at certain places. Despite what was written in the Book it has changes even though minor and they might affect the meaning if you use the extra symbols to interpret it.

I wonder if God meant that He will always preserve the Message. I will look up that verse again which talks about preservation.

But I think the Quran is preserved pretty much as the original and the literal content is the same. The weird passages is due to our problems of reading it after deliberate changing of meaning of the words over the years.

Sorry. This post was not really covering the title of this thread even if it concerned Muhammad as a name and loosely connected to the question in the title.

God bless you

THANKS TO ALLAH THERE IS NO AUTHOR OTHERWISE THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN MANY CONTRADICTIONS

IT IS REALLY REALLY NICE THAT EVEN THE AUTHOR DOES NOT HAVE A COURAGE TO WRITE HIS NAME IF HE WAS A HUMAN BEING AS HE
MAY BE HAVING FEAR OF ALLAH

:::IF HE WAS A HUMAN BEING HE WROTE THE QURAN IN ARABIC

AND MENTIONED   THAT THE QURAN IS IN ARABIC MANY TIMES IN THE QURAN ITSELF ? SO STUPID

IF  I WOULD HAVE WRITTEN A BOOK IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE ::::::I WOULD HAVE NEVER  TOLD IN MY WHOLE BOOK THAT THIS BOOK IS IN ENGLISH SO COMPREHEND

 

7:144 He said, "O Musa, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My speaking. So hold what I have given you and be among the grateful."

7:145 And We wrote for him on the tablets of all things - instruction and explanation for all things, "Hold them strongly and order your people to take the best of it. I will show you the home of the defiantly disobedient."

[Quran 46:12] Before this, the book of Moses provided guidance and mercy. This too is a scripture that confirms, in ARABIC, to warn those who transgressed, and to give good news to the righteous

SURAH KAHF  27 AIYAAT
And recite what has been revealed  to YOU of  the BOOK of your lord. NONE CAN CHANGE HIS WORDS and NEVER YOU WILL FIND A REFUGE BESIDE HIM





even without the author this book changellenges the world ..that no one can change its words ....i have found many books they are regularly updated with new edition just because the contents need to be added or mistakes need to be corrected ...who wrote this book without errors
 
i am believer to god and i will  not argue

18:54    And We have dispatched in this Qur'an for the people from every example; but human being  has always been most argumentative.



5:104    And if they are told: "Come to what God has sent down, and to the messenger;" they say: "We are content with what we found our fathers doing." What if their fathers did not know anything nor were guided?

We know from " Qoran" that it was sent by God. There is no  argument there.

However ,it was inspired to be written down. The writing was done by the messenger;

The Quran tells us that Muhammad wrote down the Quran  as he was receiving it.- Muhammad's contemporaries are quoted as saying,

وَقالوا أَسٰطيرُ الأَوَّلينَ اكتَتَبَها فَهِىَ تُملىٰ عَلَيهِ بُكرَةً وَأَصيلًا

[Quran 25:5] They also said, "Tales from the past that he wrote down; they were dictated to him day and night."
You cannot "dictate" to an illiterate person.
The Prophet's enemies who accuse him of illiteracy abuse Verse 29:48, which relates specifically to previous scriptures.

وَما كُنتَ تَتلوا مِن قَبلِهِ مِن كِتٰبٍ وَلا تَخُطُّهُ بِيَمينِكَ إِذًا لَارتابَ المُبطِلونَ
[29:48]
You did not read the previous scriptures, nor did you write them with your hand. In that case, the rejecters would have had reason to harbor doubts.

Finally::

3:1] As the stars fell away.‏[١:٥٣] وَالنَّجمِ إِذا هَوى
[53:2] Your friend was not astray, nor was he deceived.‏ ما ضَلَّ صاحِبُكُم وَما غَوىٰ
[53:3] Nor was he speaking out of a personal desire. وَما يَنطِقُ عَنِ الهَوىٰ
[53:4] It was divine inspiration. إِن هُوَ إِلّا وَحىٌ يوحىٰ
[53:5] Dictated by the Most Powerful.‏ عَلَّمَهُ شَديدُ القُوىٰ

Of course the words are from God , but the writing was done by a human hand.

Peace to you

INTERESTING AIYAT IF MUHAMMED DUTY WAS THE THE MESSENGER AND A SEAL TO PROPHETS
IF MUHAMMED IS SENDING THE ONLY THE MESSAGES OF ALLAH AMONG PEOPLE
THEN WHO IS THIS PERSON WHO IS WRITING THIS DIVINE INSPIRATION
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT MUHAMMED WAS WRITING THE QURAN WEATHER HE IS LITERATE OR ILLITERATE  IT DOESNT MATTER
YA I BELIEVE THAT IT WAS REVEALED TO MUHAMMEDIN AS PER 47.2
but i also believe that this divine writing can be revealed on slave of allah  as per 18:1
slave of allah cannot only be muhammed
BUT WHO WAS WRITING ?
53 :2,3,4 can be  taken upon any reader

are you sure was it muhammed or some other person who has written and passed away  before muhammed ...then someone  has revealed on  the aiyats again. and became the MUHAMMEDUN RASOOL ALLAH :hmm

The ayats that you are quoting have no " write" in them?

May be you do not believe there was a person called " Mohammed" who received Qoran from God.
I believe that "Nabi Mohammed" received the words of God through - inspiration/Gabriel...- sent by the most high...  And he wrote the words as he was receiving them.
He delivered the message. People to this day are still writing "Qoran"--Putting pen to paper.--.

That is the point I was discussing.

As for teaching, understanding, accepting, believing, living... Qoran. These are different

I was only discussing the " Writing".

You did not read the previous scriptures, nor did you write them with your hand. In that case, the rejecters would have had reason to harbor doubts.

Finally::

3:1] As the stars fell away.‏[١:٥٣] وَالنَّجمِ إِذا هَوى
[53:2] Your friend was not astray, nor was he deceived.‏ ما ضَلَّ صاحِبُكُم وَما غَوىٰ
[53:3] Nor was he speaking out of a personal desire. وَما يَنطِقُ عَنِ الهَوىٰ
[53:4] It was divine inspiration. إِن هُوَ إِلّا وَحىٌ يوحىٰ
[53:5] Dictated by the Most Powerful.‏ عَلَّمَهُ شَديدُ القُوىٰ

Of course the words are from God , but the writing was done by a human hand.

Peace to you



Peace brother Good Logic,

Nice to see you back :D
Thanks for the aayaat, but sorry to say that none of the aayaat you quoted above has the word "Muhammad" in it as you claimed in the red highlighted part above of your post.
Please be careful in saying anything about Allah, His punishments are severe :&


May Allah increase our knowledge and guide us on His path :pr

Peace mmkhan.

Thank you for the welcome.

The " Ayats" are about the one who received the Qoran, the messenger of God.. It does not mention " Mohammed". But  elsewhere  in Qoran  God says" Mohammed, the messenger of God."

I am trying to be very careful brother. I must follow all "Qoran" not just part of it.

Peace to you brother.

Because God is talking specifically about this messenger in [25:5]:

Let e tell you why?:
[25:7]
وَقالوا مالِ هٰذَا الرَّسولِ يَأكُلُ الطَّعامَ وَيَمشى فِى الأَسواقِ لَولا أُنزِلَ إِلَيهِ مَلَكٌ فَيَكونَ مَعَهُ نَذيرًا

And they said, "How come this messenger eats the food and walks in the markets? If only an angel could come down with him, to serve with him as a preacher!"

Now God talks about the others:
[25:20]
وَما أَرسَلنا قَبلَكَ مِنَ المُرسَلينَ إِلّا إِنَّهُم لَيَأكُلونَ الطَّعامَ وَيَمشونَ فِى الأَسواقِ وَجَعَلنا بَعضَكُم لِبَعضٍ فِتنَةً أَتَصبِرونَ وَكانَ رَبُّكَ بَصيرًا

We did not send any messengers before you who did not eat food and walk in the markets. We thus test you by each other; will you steadfastly persevere? Your Lord is Seer.

May be you do not believe there was a person called " Mohammed" who received Qoran from God.
I believe that "Nabi Mohammed" received the words of God through - inspiration/Gabriel...- sent by the most high...  And he wrote the words as he was receiving them.
He delivered the message. People to this day are still writing "Qoran"--Putting pen to paper.--.

That is the point I was discussing.

As for teaching, understanding, accepting, believing, living... Qoran. These are different

I was only discussing the " Writing".

Peace .to you.


YES YES I AM PROUD THAT I DONT BELIEVE IN ANY OF THE FAIRY TALES :::THANKS TO ALLAH WHO HAS GUIDED ME TO THE RIGHT WAY AS I FOLLOW  ONLY THE REVELATIONS OF ALLAH

3:84
Say, "We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him.


SORRY NO MUHAMMED HERE

IF YOU CAN BRING PROOF OR AIYATS FROM THE LORD THAT MUHAMMED WAS WRITING QURAN THEN I NO PROBLEM IN ACCEPTING THAT

OTHERWISE THAT IS THE USE JUST TO SIMPLY BLAME THAT THERE IS ONE NABI MUHAMMED WHO WAS WRTING SO CALLED QURAN
WHICH NOBODY HAS SEEN NOT EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE WRITTEN THOUSANDS OF HADITH ON THAT PERSON:::::

Salam to all

I know how anti-Muhammad Quranist's methodologis, because I already get discussion both in here and with my fellow countrymen.

They mostly only use harakat, tashkeel and nahwu-sharaf knowledge as their main base and only pick one, two verses not entirely.They reject any historical prespective.

As we know originally Arabic letters has no vowel, harakat but created during Ummayad or Abbasiyah after the dead of Phrophet, this means Phrophet Muhammad himself never ratify this.The system called tashkeel and harakat was inputted in the Quran, so non Arabic speaker can easilly to read it.

I give  example:

وما محمد إلا رسول 3:144

That was the original Arabic Quran without tashkeel and notice the red word, how do you pronounce it??Muhammad or Muhammadun?? The answer is can be both of two.

But the current Arabic Quran have harakat inputted on it, then the word محمد became like this : مُحَمَّدٌ.So that's why we pronounce Muhammadun because tanwin in the last huruf.
And because of this too, they claim if Muhammad is a noun, not a name of a person.Of course as we know humans, animals, and another living creatures are included as a noun.

In the corpusquran, the word Muhammad(un) had been categorized as "proper noun".As we know proper noun and proper name is forbidden to be translated into another language and the word Muhammad is of course not an ordinary noun and it refer to a Phrophet we know for long time.

Secondly like @good-logic says if they didn't believe on Phrophet Muhammad, his sira' another connected histories (some of them even didn't believe on existence of Rasyidin Caliphate), then How they know:- the history of the Quran,?? the history of tashkeel and harakat??
                                                                                                                         
Thirdly they always said, "We must believe on Quran only, to believe on history we must also believe on Quran only".

Now the question: Is the Quran a History Book??

The answer is no.The Arabic Quran has no 5W+ 1H (What, Why, Who , When , Which, How). This means the Quran cannot been categorized as historical references.

Quran is a Scripture and the guidance for deen not history and this Book is: -Phropet saying (69:40)
                                                                                                                          -Confirmation of the previous Kitabs (3:3 etc)

The purpose of verses in the Quran like verses about Phrophets is not for historical knowledge but for the guidance for our faith (read 11:120, 12:3 ,12:111).So thats why Old Testament give history of Phrophets more detail rather than Quran.
This mean to understand the history of the Quran, we may need another narrations like sira'.

There is some evidence proofs if Phrophet Muhammad is Exist : LINK (http://free-minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=9604838.msg330377#msg330377)

This post is only my 2 cent, and this is based on my experiences.

Remember هٰذَا الرَّسولِ both words represent present time (http://free-minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=9604284.msg306146#msg306146) or at least هٰذَا clearly means "this", so how could "this" is referring to THAT rasool who has passed 1400+ years ago.

BTW, it is mentioned AL+Rasool, which was never used with the word Muhammad in alQuraan. You can take a look at this thread (http://free-minds.org/forum/index.php?topic=9602494.msg279514#msg279514).

The overly strict Quran-aloners reject Muhammad because of how the tashkeels are used in the word محمد.

Guys, tashkeels are just human inventions! Some of earliest Quran manuscripts don't contain tashkeels.

may be it was wrong someone tried to violate the law of allah without inserting marking so allah has kept it in the museum just like firaun body  is placed in the museum  as the saying of people ...not even a single word i understand from that paper i cant even predict the arabic text of it ...and neither Arabic speaker do that but  if all the quran has the word muhammadun than what about that paper will it be having the same or different ? the meaning is definitely going to be translated ....because allah says this

Thank you for ayaat [19:2]

God sometimes mention a name, other times He does not have to, because it is obvious like [17:1]:

سُبحٰنَ الَّذى أَسرىٰ بِعَبدِهِ لَيلًا مِنَ المَسجِدِ الحَرامِ إِلَى المَسجِدِ الأَقصَا الَّذى بٰرَكنا حَولَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِن ءايٰتِنا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ البَصيرُ

Most glorified is the One who summoned His servant (Mohammad/ Ahmed...) during the night, from the Sacred Masjid  to the farthest place of prostration,* whose surroundings we have blessed, in order to show him some of our signs. He is the Hearer, the Seer.

You are going to say I inserted ( Mohammed/ Ahmd..)but:

If it is other than the one who received Qoran, i.e Mohammed/Ahmed...Or whatever name you have for him...I will eat my hat!

Hope you will understand something.

Why I have posted this image? Just to make known that the Quran was written without tashkeel and whatever we find in the present Quran  as MUHAMMUD UN  MUHAMMAD AN is nothing but MUHAMMAD, the name of the messenger. The tashkeel is an insertion to facilitate the reading of the Quran by non Arabic people. If still people argue that MUHAMMAD UN OR AN is not a name of a person / messenger but praiseworthy then it is their choice.

That aayat doesn't say it was alQuraan. If you understand what means naazil, inshaAllah, it will be easy for you to understand this subject brother. For example:

The overly strict Quran-aloners reject Muhammad because of how the tashkeels are used in the word محمد.

Guys, tashkeels are just human inventions! Some of earliest Quran manuscripts don't contain tashkeels.

Regards,
Yuliana

Salaam Yuliana,

I am afraid that you are saying something on Allah that you have no knowledge/evidence of :&
AlQuraan don't support this thing. This is all a big game, spreaded by the writers of hadith that alQuraan was without tashkeels. No human or jinn can add tashkeels in such a way it is used in alQuraan even though if they gather together to help each other. It is not a work of man or jinn.
Please be aware of Allah's punishments on saying something on Allah without holding any evidence about it.

Absolutely right

Let them find the same what they quote in the oldest manuscript of the Quran which are kept in the libraries of Tashkent,  Istanbul, Cairo, Yemen . If they find all they quoted suffixed by UN AN then they have a valid point to argue or else they should terminate the debate / argument.

Thanks

Salaam brother,

I believe that this manuscripts are made willingly to misguide people.
Haven't you seen how tashkeel is used in alQuraan? Do you think anyone can write in so perfect way.
Is it really allowed to add something to the Book of Allah?
Or is Allah's Book dependent on humans and cannot be read or understood by others without human's help? :&
Its a pre planned word to misguide people from the path of Allah, because alQuraan never support such claims.

Peace mmkhan.

Thank you for ayaat [19:2]

God sometimes mention a name, other times He does not have to, because it is obvious like [17:1]:

سُبحٰنَ الَّذى أَسرىٰ بِعَبدِهِ لَيلًا مِنَ المَسجِدِ الحَرامِ إِلَى المَسجِدِ الأَقصَا الَّذى بٰرَكنا حَولَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِن ءايٰتِنا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ البَصيرُ

Most glorified is the One who summoned His servant (Mohammad/ Ahmed...) during the night, from the Sacred Masjid  to the farthest place of prostration,* whose surroundings we have blessed, in order to show him some of our signs. He is the Hearer, the Seer.

You are going to say I inserted ( Mohammed/ Ahmd..)but:

If it is other than the one who received Qoran, i.e Mohammed/Ahmed...Or whatever name you have for him...I will eat my hat!

Peace to you.


Peace brother,

Keep a full bottle of distilled water with some salt, because you may find difficult to digest your hat ;)
Where did alQuraan says that it was received by Muhammad/Ahmed?

Hope you will understand something.

Why I have posted this image? Just to make known that the Quran was written without tashkeel and whatever we find in the present Quran  as MUHAMMUD UN  MUHAMMAD AN is nothing but MUHAMMAD, the name of the messenger. The tashkeel is an insertion to facilitate the reading of the Quran by non Arabic people. If still people argue that MUHAMMAD UN OR AN is not a name of a person / messenger but praiseworthy then it is their choice.

Thanks

Salaam Hafeez Kazi, Yuliana and Earthdom,

Why do you bother only for the AN/UN what hapened with the rest of the tashkeel.
With other words why did you not write mIhUmIdA? as far as I can see there are also no tashkeel on those letters.

You know what, let's put it on a test. Does any of you have the courage to write or pronounce the next sentence and say that this is from Allah. :
Mihimmudu risila Alluha (48:29)

Another thing, how is it possible that you give authority to a Quran from centuries ago as the true Quran while you doubt about the one you hold today in your hands?
So if you like to discuss with me about the Quran then please use the ones we both share and not one who is in a museum without tashkeels and with big parts missing and even not accesible to the public.
Allah will not call you to account on what was before you but on what is present with you.

Salaam,
Bender

I actually hold a bit of Bender's slight critical approach in certain cases. Not sure about the constant nagging in Quran about rasuul allah really constantly repeats about just the Messenger.

But I still believe the Messenger was named Muhammad or something like it. It does however not matter much.

Quran was not sent down from Heaven was it? Did someone not write it?

According to what I have understood it was not sent down already with written text on paper/papyrus, so someone was a prophet with a pen, right?

Well, most Messengers and Prophets are mentioned in Quran, but not the actual person that wrote it? Is that not a bit strange?

Ahmed or Muhammad, or Abraham Lincoln, how does it matter really? If now he is anonymous then it should not matter if you give him worthy nicknames, right? Is not Muhammad (praiseworthy) a worthy nickname for the Messenger of Quran? So it is just pointless arguments going on here.

If there came a Messenger now and he did not necessarily come from the Arab countries, then his name would most likely not be Muhammad (praiseworthy) so that would make the verse with Muhammad a bit strange, would it not? That taking into consideration that like almost every Messenger in history was named in the scriptures and legends (and proved through Quran). Why at the advent of Quran would the Messenger suddenly be anonymous? No he was not, he was likely named Muhammad (Praiseworthy) much like Hussein or Hassan which also mean something.

How about Emanuel (contains Iman = Faith)?

first of all you are forcefully inserting one particular person in the quran which allah has not at all mentioned
you are teaching allah to insert muhammed forcefully as if allah does not know anything
the word you when i read quran it many times appears to myself then any other particular person
then why allah said that quran is a guidance to all human beings
and why allah said that al kitab is a guidance to mutaqueens
and that battle of badr aiyat if anyone can explain it properly i would be thankfull to him as i dont trust translators

Peace brother,

You believe very strongly in hadith/history still.
If the word Ba-Daal-Ra is used in 3:123, does that mean "battle of Badr"? If so, how will you translate a derivative, which is derived from the same root Ba-Daal-Ra in 4:6?

4:6 وَابْتَلُوا الْيَتَامَىٰ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا بَلَغُوا النِّكَاحَ فَإِنْ آنَسْتُم مِّنْهُمْ رُشْدًا فَادْفَعُوا إِلَيْهِمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ ۖ وَلَا تَأْكُلُوهَا إِسْرَافًا وَبِدَارًا أَن يَكْبَرُوا ۚ وَمَن كَانَ غَنِيًّا فَلْيَسْتَعْفِفْ ۖ وَمَن كَانَ فَقِيرًا فَلْيَأْكُلْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ فَإِذَا دَفَعْتُمْ إِلَيْهِمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فَأَشْهِدُوا عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّـهِ حَسِيبًا

And also please take a look at other translations of 3:123 (http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=3&verse=123) here. There is no word "victory" in aayat.

Okay, so you have a different translation/understanding than I do. With the monotheist translation I get the impression that the Qur'an was written down by a Messenger. There are too many ayat in Quran which seem to fit this idea, look yourself.

They are names of people and their names also have some meaning as words. I gave examples and it was no special people I referred to.

Why do I have to provide an ayat when the whole Quran shines with this testimony? And otherwise it does not matter as I said if he is named Jackass or whatever as there was a guy that came or they have to rewrite all the translations I have read. Else I have to paste the whole Qur'an for you right here.

First of all Lord Mohammed M. Khan, Earliest Qur'an manuscripts ever are without tashkeels. It is the Sunnah lovers and inventors that put the tashkeels. The tashkeel are often used for recitation (and singing) of the Qur'an. COPIES of Qur'an often vary in styles of writings (alphabetical style). So don't accuse me of lying about God.

So you are saying God throws down Qur'an from the sky? How illogical!

There are many verses that say Qur'an were written. The words of Qur'an are inspired by God.

Anyways I don't even know whether I should believe in scriptural faith anymore. I will never believe in Sunnism, Shia, Ahmadiyya etc. However I am also sick of differences in interpretations.

I am sick of people justifying polygamy, sex-slavery in the Qur'an. Is this what intelligent deen about?
I think many of Qur'an aloners, liberal muslims etc are just being apologetic.

Sorry for my crying here.
I know this is not the right place to cry over this.

I am sick of people justifying polygamy, sex-slavery in the Qur'an. Is this what intelligent deen about?
I think many of Qur'an aloners, liberal muslims etc are just being apologetic.

Sorry for my crying here.
I know this is not the right place to cry over this.


i think that sunnah lovers and inventors god inspiration to put that particular  tanween only on muhammed at every place ....leaving all the other prophets name

6:83 to 6:89
allah took all the names and said
we gave the al kitaab the judgement and prophethood but muhammed is not included
in these passage ....did allah forgot to give   al kitaab to muhammed

Peace wasi, mm khan,Bender.

Wasi I believe in the " best hadith"!

Those who were not at " badr" have not received any " victory" of that ayaat . Werther they believed in Qoran or hadith!

Did " hadith" exist  at the time of "Badr"?

It is fine anyone of you can answer.

Peace to you all.





 peace good logic

my understanding


how did we get this quran

from my parents ....i dont know any history of islam because allah says

1.   Ar rahaman is our teacher :   55:2 It is He Who has taught the Qur'an.


2.   You are commanded to follow what is sent down from  your lord :
3.   7:3    Follow what was sent down to you from your Lord, and do not follow besides Him any supporters. Little do you remember!


4.   Majority of the people are FALSE
5.   6:116    And if you obey most of those on the earth they will lead you away from the path of God; that is because they follow conjecture, and that is because they only guess.


every aiyat should satisfy us ........this is my opinion and what does mmkhan n bender say on this

Salaam Hafeez Kazi, Yuliana and Earthdom,

Why do you bother only for the AN/UN what hapened with the rest of the tashkeel.
With other words why did you not write mIhUmIdA? as far as I can see there are also no tashkeel on those letters.

You know what, let's put it on a test. Does any of you have the courage to write or pronounce the next sentence and say that this is from Allah. :
Mihimmudu risila Alluha (48:29)

Another thing, how is it possible that you give authority to a Quran from centuries ago as the true Quran while you doubt about the one you hold today in your hands?
So if you like to discuss with me about the Quran then please use the ones we both share and not one who is in a museum without tashkeels and with big parts missing and even not accesible to the public.
Allah will not call you to account on what was before you but on what is present with you.

Salaam,
Bender

First of all, I was not justifying the existence of Qur'an recipient named Mohammed by using no-tashkeel theory. I was just saying that using tashkeel to disprove Mohammed as a name because of tanween in arguments is weak because tashkeel is man-made inventions to COPIES of Qur'an.

I prefer using history for arguments about Mohammed as a name of a person who received Qur'an.
Recently I have been having doubt either Mohammed ibn Abdullah ibn Abdul Muthalib is the 'Mohammed' that is mentioned in the Qur'an.

Peace mm khan.

The link you gave , here are the translations:
Chapter (3) sūrat āl ʿim'rān (The Family of Imrān)

Sahih International: And already had Allah given you victory at [the battle of] Badr while you were few in number. Then fear Allah ; perhaps you will be grateful.

Pickthall: Allah had already given you the victory at Badr, when ye were contemptible. So observe your duty to Allah in order that ye may be thankful.

Yusuf Ali: Allah had helped you at Badr, when ye were a contemptible little force; then fear Allah; thus May ye show your gratitude.

Shakir: And Allah did certainly assist you at Badr when you were weak; be careful of (your duty to) Allah then, that you may give thanks.

Muhammad Sarwar: God gave you victory in the battle of Badr where your forces were much weaker than those of the enemy. Have fear of God so that you may give Him thanks.

Mohsin Khan: And Allah has already made you victorious at Badr, when you were a weak little force. So fear Allah much [abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden and love Allah much, perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained] that you may be grateful.

Arberry: and God most surely helped you at Badr, when you were utterly abject. So fear God, and haply you Will be thankful.

Have you given the right link?
I found most of them talk about " Victory"?
Peace to you.


Peace brother,

Yes, I have given you the correct link.
It is not about winning between us. I wanted to show you to think on why other translators did not translate it as victory? It means those who translated as victory are based on hadith and trying to fit that badr story into the aayat of alQuraan.


Peace be with you too :pr

First of all Lord Mohammed M. Khan, Earliest Qur'an manuscripts ever are without tashkeels. It is the Sunnah lovers and inventors that put the tashkeels. The tashkeel are often used for recitation (and singing) of the Qur'an. COPIES of Qur'an often vary in styles of writings (alphabetical style). So don't accuse me of lying about God.

So you are saying God throws down Qur'an from the sky? How illogical!

There are many verses that say Qur'an were written. The words of Qur'an are inspired by God.

Anyways I don't even know whether I should believe in scriptural faith anymore. I will never believe in Sunnism, Shia, Ahmadiyya etc. However I am also sick of differences in interpretations.

I am sick of people justifying polygamy, sex-slavery in the Qur'an. Is this what intelligent deen about?
I think many of Qur'an aloners, liberal muslims etc are just being apologetic.

Sorry for my crying here.
I know this is not the right place to cry over this.

Peace Yuliana,

Easy easy, relax!
Red: :& [please don't do shirk by making me your Lord :&]
Blue: I am not accusing you, but wanted to warn you that when your knowledge/understanding don't match with alQuraan, then it is a lying on Allah. So, just wanted to make you aware of it, so that you can say only what you have evidence for.

I cannot believe that sunna lovers or mushriks are so talented to add tashkeel to the book of Allah. If you start understanding the usage of it, then you will come to know, how perfectly it has been set. It is not possible for any human or jinn to add it in such a perfect way.


May Allah bless you and increase our knowledge :pr

Like I said before, the styles of writing (i.e. alphabetical styles) in COPIES or PRINTINGS of Qur'an usually differ. The Arabic diacritics were invented because at that time Qur'an had been considered as islamic mantra-singing book.

Peace Yuliana,

InshaAllah, you will learn soon that old copies of alQuraan/manuscripts are made in purpose by polytheists by removing markings/tashkeel from the aayaat of alQuraan.

They did it on purpose to misguide people and unfortunately they are succeeded.

We don't have to look at other copies of alQuraan, you will be asked from what copy of alQuraan you have given and I will be asked from the copy I am given. So, nothing to worry. One thing is clear that old copies are not for us and we are not going to answer for those copies, so what is the point in arguing for something which we have nothing to do with.

Hope you understand what I am trying to say, inshaAllah.

TODAY HOW DOES ALLAH COMMUNICATES WITH US 
42:52
And thus we have revealed to YOU an inspiration by our command. YOU did not KNOW what AL-KITAB  is  nor faith is. But we have made it a light by which we guide whom we will of OUR slaves .And indeed,you guide to the Straight path..


peace good logic

it is very nice to converse with you  :) :)

 ....a year ago i was not even knowing the word Al-kitab ....but today i can find the much difference between al kitab and al quran

if you comprehend the sentences of al kitab properly you can feel as if allah is communicating truely to you...

is there any problem for you to become a nabi .....every past nabi was a human being and there is no problem for us to be a nabi
if we have a courage and move forward for submitting to allah almighty then allah will surely accept us ......


and we are the seal to khatimana  nabiyiana(prophets)


i am not so sure but i can say that

muhammadun is not singular

rasoolun is not singular or particular

and
khatimana nabiyiana is not singular

rasoola of 33:40 is different from rasoolu of 61:5 as it is refereed to musa a particular person and next aiyat 61:6 matches with 61:5 as rasoolu

allah knows how to use words but the problem is we are effected by history n corruption of islam we need to be pure in understanding the words properly

BY THE WAY  TO MISGUIDE PEOPLE ARABS CAN DO ANYTHING BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT ARAB HAVE A SPECIAL CATEGORY OF AS ALLAH DEFINED IN THE QURAN



9:98
And some ARABI  Look upon their payments as a fine and watch for disasters for YOU: on them be the disaster of evil: for Allah is He that hearer knowledge.

WILL YOU WANT TO TRUST THE PEOPLE OF  ARABS AFTER LOOKING TO THIS AIYAT


AND ARABIS ARE HAVING A STRONG DISBELIEVING HEART WITH ALLAH

9.97
The ARABA  are more hard in disbelief and hypocrisy, and more likely to be ignorant of the limits which Allah hath revealed unto His messenger. And Allah is knower, Wise.


MAY BE THEY HAVE WANTEDLY WRITTEN BY SEEING THE ORIGINAL QURAN WITH TASHKEEL TO  WITHOUT TASHKEEL AND ALLAH HAS TAKEN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROTECTING THIS BOOK AS WE CAN CLEARLY SEE WITH OUR EYES:::WHY THOSE MUSEUM PAPERS ARE NOT WITH US AND WHY THIS QURAN IS IN YOUR HANDS

if muhammed was the messenger of allah a particular person then the sencentence could have been

muhammadha rasoolu aallahiii ....but the fact is this person has not came to people as allah did not said  in the meeting..... like how  allah said ....musa came in 61:5
and when musa said:
and said among his people rasoolu allahi

and
do you find a speech like this
 i muhammed declares my self as i am the   rasoolu allahi  and SEAL  NABI  AND THIS AL QURAN IS WRITTEN OR GIVEN TO ME :::::::NOT  KHATIMANA NABIYINAAA

khatimana nabiyiana is not singular

rasoola of 33:40 is different from rasoolu of 61:5 as it is refereed to musa a particular person and next aiyat 61:6 matches with 61:5 as rasoolu

when rasoolu comes it comes with allahi

and why muhamadin is used in 47:2 why not muhammedun the names cannot be changed in prounication n spelling

I don't trust Arabs for my arguments that diacritics are innovations. Those are based on facts.
The diacritical marks make no significance to our salvation.

You can barely show your proofs that real Qur'an was without the goddamn tashkeel.

If Qur?an was revealed or given to know as spoken word, the tahskeel does not make any difference. The sounds would be learn and any tashkeel would have to conform to the sounds. The question is there has been transmitted only one version of Qur'an, either spoken or written, that is there are not variations (the ones there are are minuscule and do not change anything). So tahskeel or no tashkeel, what we have is what we have. If we think the sounds have been changed we can also think ayas and whole lots of the Qur'an may have been changed, that is, we would have no Qur'an.

Since the Person is most suitable by Allah, HE named the Person as Mohammed. We respect Mohammed who is truthful and Great Implementer of Quran. Now also Who Implements Quran in real Life By the Satifaction of Allah, I dont doubt Allah will elevate him to the level of Mohammed.

"This article is a selected passages (about Islam) from the works of Fomenko and G.V.Nosovskogo series "New Chronology." More information about these authors and their books can be found on the official website of the "New Chronology? (http://chronologia.org)."

"From the book "Empire"

Orthodoxy and Islam ... were united under one religion. Then a deep division between Orthodoxy and Islam was not. Islam initially, as is well known, was over Christian - Nestorianism. The difference in the rites, etc. accumulated for a long time before the split. As a result of these two branches of Christianity then strongly diverged. But this was already in the XV century."

"Division ... was the result of religious schism beginning of the XV century AD Orthodoxy, Islam and Catholicism.

And ... what George the Victorious and Muslims, only confirms our reconstruction that in the XIV century Islam had not yet stood out from Orthodoxy.

History of Islam ... today it already begins with the presentation of the VII century BC Therefore, this history actually been lengthened compared to reality, at least three-four years.

Islam ... Islam had already been forced to extend its history in the past."

"From the book "Mathematical chronology of biblical events"
Chapter 4. Application sequence BIBLE phantom phantom-REAL EVENTS EUROPEAN MIDDLE AGES
6. WHY ERA GEDZHARY reckoned names from VII century AD?
6.1. OVERVIEW"

"At the same time, chronology, recorded in the Quran, sometimes significant controversy and biblical chronology. For example, the Koran apparently believes ARON = Aria (?) - Uncle of gospel Jesus. Therefore, Moses and Aaron according to the Koran are in the generation immediately preceding Jesus Christ, that, of course, at odds with Scaliger's point of view on a few hundred years."

Information on the Hajj , the pilgrimage that is the shrine in the Middle Ages is very vague and sketchy . After a pilgrimage to the remnants of a meteorite Harun al -Rashid , allegedly VIII century AD , comes a break in the Hajj . Then , allegedly in the X century AD Carmathians besieged Mecca and took with them to Hedger "heavenly stone" , thinking to attract crowds of pilgrims to her. However , after some time, some of the fragments of the "heavenly stone" returned to Mecca. Maybe these medieval pilgrimage Ark of the Covenant and are reflected in the Bible, specifically describing the abduction Ark enemies , his " moving " from place to place , after which he was returned back (1 Samuel 5-7). As in the case of the Muslim Kaaba , "kidnapping Ark " occurred only once ( in the Bible ) .

Only since the alleged X-XI centuries AD begins more or less authentic period Scaligerian history of Hajj . By the way, in the XVIII century religious war broke out , which Scaliger historians hastened to explain the complete absence of Mecca and Medina, any credible tombs of the Prophet and his companions. Allegedly , when in 1803 , Saud took Mecca , he ordered to kill all the servants of the Kaaba and bulldoze ALL tombstones family members of Mohammed. But not created specifically whether this legend to somehow "explain" the lack of reliable graves here ?

i also believe that there is none in this world who can show the history properly except the creator of this world

12:102  That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal, to you. And you were not with them when they put together their plan while they conspired.


only my lord is the best know er of history .....


secondly who cares of HISTORY i am more and more interested not even with my history but with my future as my lord teaches me the best ...

"This article is a selected passages (about Islam) from the works of Fomenko and G.V.Nosovskogo series "New Chronology." More information about these authors and their books can be found on the official website of the "New Chronology? (http://chronologia.org)."

"From the book "Empire"

Orthodoxy and Islam ... were united under one religion. Then a deep division between Orthodoxy and Islam was not. Islam initially, as is well known, was over Christian - Nestorianism. The difference in the rites, etc. accumulated for a long time before the split. As a result of these two branches of Christianity then strongly diverged. But this was already in the XV century."

"Division ... was the result of religious schism beginning of the XV century AD Orthodoxy, Islam and Catholicism.

And ... what George the Victorious and Muslims, only confirms our reconstruction that in the XIV century Islam had not yet stood out from Orthodoxy.

History of Islam ... today it already begins with the presentation of the VII century BC Therefore, this history actually been lengthened compared to reality, at least three-four years.

Islam ... Islam had already been forced to extend its history in the past."

"From the book "Mathematical chronology of biblical events"
Chapter 4. Application sequence BIBLE phantom phantom-REAL EVENTS EUROPEAN MIDDLE AGES
6. WHY ERA GEDZHARY reckoned names from VII century AD?
6.1. OVERVIEW"

"At the same time, chronology, recorded in the Quran, sometimes significant controversy and biblical chronology. For example, the Koran apparently believes ARON = Aria (?) - Uncle of gospel Jesus. Therefore, Moses and Aaron according to the Koran are in the generation immediately preceding Jesus Christ, that, of course, at odds with Scaliger's point of view on a few hundred years."

Could you please summarize somewhat the main point of those Russians, because even after reading that translation that you linked to with Google translation I couldn't discern anything logical or orderly?
Looks like a schizophrenic bubbling.

Thank you

It is informative.
There IS truth in everything, the perception of it usually depends on the subconscious programming of the person perceiving it.
But I wonder now why everybody tries to establish Jerusalem in their own garden? It seems that they claim that Jerusalem is Moscow  :rotfl:




2:42  Do not confound the truth with falsehood, nor shall you conceal the truth, knowingly.

3:3   He sent down to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming all previous scriptures, and He sent down the Torah and the Gospel. (Qur'an would be ininteligible without the Bible)

3:18  God bears witness that there is no god except He, and so do the angels and those who possess knowledge. Truthfully and equitably, He is the absolute god; there is no god but He, the Almighty, Most Wise.

I'm not Russian. To me, it seemed too biased, watching these videos in Russian year ago. But when I am faced with its explanation of Islam and prophet, I am very troubled as you are - at that time I was still a Sunni ...
Therefore, your reaction is normal. Keep looking and reading, you will discover many wonderful things.

To the person who started this thread...

You may be onto something. However, if anyone would care to explain, when it speaks about ahmadu, assuming this word is a PROPER NOUN denoting the name of a being, how can it be the qurans deliverer? By this I mean, Isa has said that there will come a messenger who's name is ahmadu, so would that not imply that the qurans messenger was the next messenger after Isa? What would happen then to all the messengers that came in between if that's not the case?

Also could someone please give a definitive answer as to whether the theory is true or false, providing undeniable evidence of either one.. It is really annoying having to sift through 50 plus pages trying to find a few relevant posts with people drifting off topic.

Peace GODsubmitter

With regards to what you wrote, the Holy Quran was sent down as an authority over the Book [which comprises of the Torah and Injeel]. It is not the other way round.

AQ 05:48

And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Book [Bible] and as an AUTHORITY over it. So judge between them by what ALLAH has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had ALLAH willed, HE would have made you one nation [united in religion], but to test you in what He has given you; so race to good. To ALLAH is your return all together, and HE will inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.

Peace MMKhan

The Holy Quran is

1. PERFECTED - AQ 11.01 A.L.R. This is a book whose verses have been perfected?

2. CLEAR PROOF - AQ 06:155-157  This (Quran) too is a blessed Book that we have revealed; you shall follow it and lead a righteous life, that you may attain mercy. Now you can no longer say, "The Book was sent down to two groups before us (Jews and Christians), and we were unaware of their teachings"

Nor can you say, "If only a scripture could come down to us, we would be better guided than they." Now there has come to you a ?Bayyinah? (clear proof) from your Lord and a beacon, and a mercy. Now, who is more evil than one who rejects these proofs from God, and disregards them? We will commit those who disregard our proofs to the worst retribution for their heedlessness?

3. EASY TO COMPREHEND - AQ 44:58 We have made it (the Quran) COMPERHENSIBLE and in your own tongue (language) that you may take heed?

4. WITHOUT CROOKEDNESS - AQ 39:28 "An Arabic Quran, without any crookedness, that they may take heed"

With the above quality of the Holy Quran, you still cannot comprehend OR you refuse to believe that the recipient of the Holy Quran was the seal of the prophets, Muhammad?

And to ALL who read...

AQ 06:112-116

And thus We have made for every prophet an enemy - devils from mankind and jinn, inspiring to one another decorative speech in delusion. But if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so leave them and that which they invent.

And [it is] so the hearts of those who disbelieve in the Hereafter will incline toward it and that they will be satisfied with it and that they will commit that which they are committing.

Seeking judgement other than ALLAH while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?" And those to whom We [previously] gave the Book know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

And the word of your LORD has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

And if you obey most of those on earth they would mislead thee far from ALLAH's way. Indeed, they follow but assumption, and they do but guess.


Peace

Yes, but more than half of the Qur'an is the repetitions and material already exposed in the Bible, I do not see how could it be the other way round if the Qur'an is based on Bible, and confirms it?
It's just plain common sense which should not be lost because of any religious fervor!

If the Quran is base on bible than why ALLAH rejected the bible and why did HE sent down the Quran? There is no religious favour on my part, I am very sure of that!

?The Qur'an based on the Bible? ?Wht: did God need any base to reveal to anyubody whatever He wanted? The Qur'an mentions hapennings and events that are mentioned in the books of the Bible because amongst the people the Qur'an was first revealed those stories were common knowledge and God reminds them of them and points the lessons to be gained from those events. Also, there are prophets and events that do not appear in the Bible, so it is too daring to say that the Qur'an is based on the Bible, rather the Qur'an used the stories that were common knowledge amonst the people it came for its own purposes.

I suggest to brother mmkhan if you study Quran please don't depend too much on diacritic.
To understand a word in the Quran, don't see it's diacritic first, but see the root of that word, because there are some possiblility if the word have another meaning which we don't expecting before.

The Qur'an mentions hapennings and events that are mentioned in the books of the Bible

Agreed

Peace,

The audience of the Quran also included the people of the Book, hence the references to the previous Books to
make clear to them the authenticity of God's revelation.  Also the Ayat that begins with "They ask thee " is a
challenge offered to Muhammad to prove that he was a messenger.

8/183 They ask thee concerning Zul-qarnain. Say, "I will rehearse to you something of his story."

2/101 And when there came to them a messenger from Allah, confirming what was with them, a
party of the people of the Book threw away the Book of Allah behind their backs, as if (it had been something)
they did not know!


God bless

Peace be upon you too brother,

Thanks for your concern.
But I very strongly believe that diacritics of alQuraan is set by Allah.
And that is how it explains EVERYTHING in detail.
I agree with you about roots of words and its different possible meanings. And roots surely help, but they are limited to its meaning but diacritics explains further and further. It has been set so precisely that no jinn or ins can bring such Book.

Peace,

Are diacritics not added later to make old languages easier to understand?

How are they in that case part of God's revelation and not be affected by human error?

Same with Hebrew or Aramaic. The languages were written with no vowels and it was a disadvantage later of course. Even there they have later added diacritics to make understanding and reading easier.

I think the diacritics lead to a lot of conjecture. I would not rely on them, not to 100% anyway.
