General Issues / Questions / Muhammed as the Prophet
« on: August 28, 2021, 08:09:47 PM »

When I hear muslims use the term "the prophet" abut Muhammed it makes me think that they are violating 2.137 Say: "We believe in God and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make a distinction between any of them and to Him we submit.
But now I see in 9.117 that Muhammed is mentioned as "the prophet".
Is it then okay to mention Muhammed as "the prophet" and then make a distinction between him and other prophets?

Questions/Comments on the Quran / In the name of God
« on: April 09, 2018, 06:09:46 AM »

Help neded!

I started wondering why the translation goes: "in the name of God".

Has this well known verse anything to do with a name?

(Bismi Allahi)


How to understand this?:
5:47 And let the people of the Gospel judge with what God has sent down in it.

The Gospel was/is corrupted so I don't understand this!
One could say that the intention is the original Gospel. But here God say that there should be judged with it, so it's have to be the present one.

More of same story:
5:48 For each of you We have made laws, and a structure; and if God had willed, He would have made you all one nation.

So the Christians should stay in their religion, and follow their community??

Pilgrimage (Hajj) / Planning a Pilgrimage
« on: September 30, 2017, 08:03:13 AM »
Hello all

I would love to do a pilgrimage on foot.

Has anyone here done like that?

Could it be done at all. In my case I should walk from Denmark and through Europe, Turkey, Jordan and then Saudi Arabia.

Are there a route like we know it from the Camino?

I think it would be possible just sees a lot of obsticles like finding a place to sleep, dangers on the road or visa ploblems.

But anyway I know that many refugees made it the other way on foot from Syria to Northen Europe.

I have familie: children and wife so I dont really know how I could to make it through.

But some here must have had same thoughts and maybe not bounded like me.

Or: How do you plan your pilgrimage, if you like me think that it's an obligation?


General Issues / Questions / Questions about the soul
« on: January 28, 2017, 05:16:14 PM »
Peace Everyone.

I was having some thought about the soul.

We can read, that when
God created Adam He blew His spirit into him.
38:72 "So when I have evolved him, and breathed into him from My Spirit, then you shall submit to him."

And about Jesus/Isa and Mary we read the same thing.

21:91 The one who protected her chastity, so We blew into her from Our Spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for the worlds.

In the last case I see it as the breath is ment for Jesus, but it could be for both.

Anyway is this the formular for creating life/soul. That God is blewing from His spirit?

That led me with some questions?

1. Was this formular used only on Adam and Jesus, or are we all created the same way?
2. Is our life (or should we call it the soul), a part of God. If it comes directly from Him. Or is it because its just a breath a catalysator and not a part of the product? (Or is this only relevant in Jesus/Adams case?)
3. Do animal have a spirt? (breath of God)

I?m just using you people as a great oracle, hoping to get some answers.
With Respect

Thanks and God Bless

General Issues / Questions / Was Muhammed the first muslim?
« on: April 08, 2016, 11:40:12 AM »

Was Muhammed the first Muslim?

6:14......Say: "I have been commanded to be the first who submits." And do not be of the polytheists.

or was Abraham: 6:161  Say: "My Lord has guided me to a straight path, an upright system, the creed of Abraham the monotheist; he was not of the polytheists."   

Wasn`t the messengers before Muhammed all Muslims?

Please if you could help solve this problem I would be glad. Inshallah

God bless..


Even among Christians Paul is seen as the founder of Christaniy.

Its him invented the view that you are saved because of the death of Jesus. His letters are more or less the in their original version in NT.
These letters even are the oldest part of NT.

Paul is putting forth his own interpration of the old scribtures (OT) and using them as reference to his claim that we should be saved through faith in Jesus and his death,
The scribture Paul is using and quoting are not the original Hebrew Scribtures but the greek  translation (Septuaginta)

I have seen that if I check his quotes they are in most of the cases misquotations.

Therefor I think it could be in the right place to give his view and new religion a reality check
We have all the sourses avaliblil. Or maybe someone allready did it.

But if we start with his first scribture The Roman Letter.

We here for the first time finds the idea, that because of Jesus sacrifice we should be no more under the Law. And not Judged..

Lets start to check his quotes:

1. Rom 1.17: For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed?a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,e just as it is written: ?The righteous will live by faith.
Quote is Hab; 2,4
The best way would be to go back to septuagint (LXX) and the hebrew text. And then compare after we translate.
But an easier way or a short cut we could use in the first place. Is to look first at KJV wich is a thanslation from LXX and then the text from NLT wich is a translation from the Hebrew.

Hab 2,4KJW:  but the just shall live by his faith.
NLT: Hab 2,4: But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God.

So here in the first situation its hard to say if he quoting correect or not. Anyway it looks like there in the original scribtures are more to it than just faith.
The very core of all Pauls teaching is IMO that it should be through faith you are saved. And not due to your acts. So this thing about faith is quite essential.
But to justify his claim he need more to hold on so lets continue to check his quotes.
 Rom 2;6  God ?will repay each person according to what they have done,
But as this aint in conflict with the normal view in Islam/Jewish there is no use for checking it. Here we dont doubt him  :)

No. 3 Here he are addressing the Jews.
Rom 2:24: No wonder the Scriptures say, ?The Gentiles blaspheme the name of God because of you.?
Isaih 52:5: My name is blasphemed all day long.

So nothing about the Gentiles in the original. Maybe this in the first case look like a minor mistake. But if we go into the mindset of Paul this is quite important. Cause the meaning would be that the Gentiles (whom normally shouldn?t be under the Law) now are described as someone committing a big sin.
And we should also have in mind that Paul saw himselves as the Apostle for the Gentile (not Jewish).

No. 4 Rom. God is true. As the Scriptures say about him,

?You will be proved right in what you say,
and you will win your case in court.?

Again this claim aint controversal. But again he quoting LXX.  Please check this link, where you can see that nearly all references about the quotes have to have the note: (greek version)  Check for foodnotes in the button.

Paul himself says that he was a Pharisee in Acts 23:6; 26:5 and Philippians 3:5.  But why should he then use the greek translation and not the original Hebrew. If he should have been a Pharisee this wouldn?t be the case.

Let me post now. And try to continue later. Inshalla.

Peace and thanks for reading.

Peace all

According to NT
 Jesus is judged by the jews and about to be stoned for  breaking the Jewish law:
John 10:33
"We are not stoning you for any good work," they replied, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.

Then he apparently solve the situation like this:10:34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are "gods.
But is this reference used by Jesus correct? Or should I say the writers of this text....

I think all refrences to OT in NT used is the greek (mis)translation which was in use that time.
The verse Jesus (apparently) quoted was Psalm: 82.6: which in the Greek translation (Septuagint) sounds like:  6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all [of you] children of the Most High.
(PS its here called nr. 81)

But can this really be true. Should the Jews in their book have that they are gods and children of the most high?

Thats clearly blasphemic in my view.
But on the other hand it shows that Jesus wasn?t claiming to be God no more than anybody else. And that all should be seen as children of God. Again making Jesus no more than any other human/prophet.
Maybe the vers is wrong translated and we can find the real meaning in the Hebrew text. Here it should be something like: I have said (are) you gods of you (are) children of the most high.
I my eyes this text could be about other gods and they are like children to the (true )God.
If someone here are into the original text then please help me. Cause I cant see the meaning in that Psalm verse.

I have two verses I cant understand correct.

1. 31.34: With God is the knowledge regarding the Hour. And He sends down the rain, and He knows what is inside the wombs. No soul knows what it may gain tomorrow, nor does any soul know in which land it will die. God is Knowledgeable, Expert.

Is this true? What if you are close to die. May you not know in which country you?r going ti die?
Okay maybe you cant be 100% sure, but when you are lie and taking the last breath, I think you know, or?

2.  32.3  Or do they say: "He fabricated it!" No, it is the truth from your Lord, so that you may warn a people who never received a warner before you, in order that they may be guided.

Here it must be the bringer of the Quran (Muhammed) the text is about.
Is it true that there wasn?t send a warner to this people. I thinking: What about Abraham, wasn?t he there before?
Or maybe he wasn?t a warner

I hope I can get some help to understand these two verses.

God bless

General Issues / Questions / Blood transfusion
« on: October 23, 2015, 10:46:12 PM »

I was wondering if the blood in 16.115 also includes bloodtransfusion-
We can read that blood isn?s allowed, unless you are forced to take it.

But in the operation stuation (where you need the blood) you can say no to blood, unless you are unconscious.

I know that JW-people in such situations are suposed not to take the blood. And the consequence can be death.

But wouldn?t it be a situation where you are forced. Because you have to survive.

I was givng blood the other day. And now I start to think that maybe I did something not so good. Since if the hospitals dont have to much blood to give, they are forced to think in alternative ways.
I have heard about new operations where you dont need to give blood in the same way. And wouldn?t that be to prefere. But again the blood in someway also could save a life or at least make the life easier for that person who needs it.
