Islam’s Deception: Isaac or Ishmael?

156 0

Recently, Muslims celebrated ‘Eid al-Adha’, ‘Holyday of Sacrifice’ (30th July – 3rd August). It honours the willingness of Abraham/Ibrahim to allegedly sacrifice his son Ishmael/ Ismail as an act of obedience to Allah’s command. Before Abraham could sacrifice his son however, Allah provided a lamb instead.

Numerous world leaders {Politicians, Academics and Religious (Christians & Jews) from West and East}, wished the Muslims a happy holiday, NOT realizing they are aiding, abetting and perpetuating one of the most egregious lies and deceptions (among many others), perpetrated by Islam and Muslims upon humanity for the last 1400 years, that had remained unchallenged, until now.

It is a very bewildering fact that Westerners, invariably wish Muslims among them ‘happy holidays’, but never have Muslims reciprocated even though they live in Christian majority counties. It is always a one-way street of Political Correctness gone totally insane.

What is most shocking and really perplexing of all, is the reality that from among the tens of millions of Christian theologians, historians, academicians and scholars, not a single one of them, has had the backbone to publish an article proving, that what the Muslims have been claiming for 1400 years, is pure fantasy and hogwash.

After all, the origin of this story is in the Bible/ Torah (not the Quran) where it asserts unequivocally, that Isaac was Sarah’s only son, and hence the one who was being offered for sacrifice.

What is most astounding of all, is the fact that it is Allah who tells the followers of Muhammad that it was he, who revealed the Torah (Five books of: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Chronicles & Deuteronomy) to Moses.

Al Ma’ida 5: 44 “It was We (Allah) who revealed the law (Torah to Moses); therein was guidance and light. By its standard have been judged the Jews by the Prophet who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah’s will by the Rabbis and the doctors of Law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allah’s Book and they were witnesses thereto…”

Al A’araf 7: 157 “Those who follow the apostle the unlettered prophet whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures); in the Torah and the Gospel; for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil”

In the above verses, there is NOT a single accusation against either the Jews or the Christians, that they altered their scriptures, since on the contrary, Allah is asserting to the followers of Muhammad, that it was he who had revealed both unalterable books (Torah and Gospels) to Moses and Jesus.

This article compares clearly, the TWO versions of the stories of Isaac and Ishmael; that of the original in the Bible and that in Muhammad’s Quran to match and contrast.

Genesis 22:1 “And it came to pass after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to him, Abraham….Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell you.

9. And they came to the place which God had told him; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. 10. And Abraham stretched out his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. 11. And the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham…Lay not your hand upon the lad, nor do anything to him; for now, I know that you fear God, seeing that you did not withhold your son, your only son from me; Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns”

The Biblical verses above, show repeatedly and with great precision, that it is always Isaac, and ONLY Isaac, who is considered Abraham’s foremost son, as in the repeated description “your son, your ONLY son, Isaac “.

The contorted version of this event in Muhammad’s Quran is~

Al Saffat 37: 100 “My Lord, give me one of the righteous. So We (Allah) gave him good news of a clement boy. Then, when he was old enough to accompany him, he said, “O My son, I see in a dream that I am sacrificing you; see what you think.” He said, “O my Father, do as you are commanded; you will find me, Allah willing, one of the steadfast.”

103 Then, when they had submitted and he put his forehead down. We (Allah) called out to him, “O Abraham! You have fulfilled the vision.” Thus We reward the doers of good. This was certainly an evident test.

112 And We gave him good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous. And We blessed him, and Isaac. But among their descendants are some who are righteous, and some who are clearly unjust to themselves. And We blessed Moses and Aaron. And We delivered them and their people (Israel) from the terrible disaster (Ten Plagues of Egypt)”

It is crystal clear that the Quran version is completely incompatible with, and different from the Biblical narrative. Moreover, the Quran does not assert or even name Ishmael as being offered for a sacrifice – as the later Muslim scholars in desperation, concocted an alternative story to cover up the discrepancies. Nor does the Quran explain which animal was to be sacrificed instead of Ishmael.

In Muhammad’s Quran, Isaac’s name appears in association with Ishmael in four Suras (2:133/136/140; 3:84; 4:163; 14:39).

Isaac’s name appears alone (without Ishmael) in association with Abraham or Jacob in eight Surahs (6:84; 11:71; 12:6; 38; 19:49; 21:72; 29:27; 37:112 & 113; 38:45).

The Quran mentions Isaac’s name on Sixteen occasions while that of Ishmael only Eight times.

It is a great insult to the human intellect, to Judeo-Christian beliefs, as well as a pitiable and pitiful endeavour, that the followers of Muhammad attempt their worst to pervert, contort and twist, Recorded History, Facts, Reality and Language in order to give themselves a worthy ancestry, by any means possible and at any cost.

According to the alleged, unsubstantiated and totally fabricated Arab Islamic ‘traditions’, and contrary to the original stories from the Biblical records, Ishmael is their ‘father’ just as Isaac was the ‘father’ of the Israelites.

It is very important that readers be aware, that the above so called Islamic ‘traditions’ did not exist in the minds or customs of the Pagan Arabians for the previous 1000 years prior to their alleged ‘revelations’ in Muhammad’s Quran (610/632 AD) and later Hadiths.

According to the fictional and unsupported Arab Muslim ‘traditions’, Abraham journeyed with the ‘baby’ Ishmael and his mother (Hagar) to the valley of Mecca and together later on raised the Foundations of the Kaaba.

Al Baqara 2:127 “And remember Abraham and Isma`il raised the foundations of the House (with this prayer): “Our Lord! accept (this service) from us for thou art the All-Hearing the All-Knowing 128 “Our Lord! make of us Muslims bowing to Thy (Will) and of our progeny a people Muslim bowing to Thy (Will)”

The falsification of history and the contorting of facts and reality are the FORTE of most of the so called ‘scholars of Islam’ since nowhere in the whole of the Torah/ Bible, are the names of Arabia, Mecca and Kaaba mentioned or that Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael ever set foot in Arabia.

These ‘scholars’ know full well that there exists no such ‘Arab tradition’ anywhere in neither the pagan Arabian records nor in the Oral traditions of these Arabs to substantiate any of their contentions.

If the Muslim scholars are correct, then Allah must have spoken Hebrew to Abraham and the first language heard near the Kaaba was therefore Hebrew, not Arabic.

It is an extreme measure of their intellectual and theological desperation, that the Muslim scholars even contradict their Quran which otherwise asserts in several verses, that neither Muhammad nor the Pagan Arabs had any knowledge of previous revelations (the Hebrew Bible and New Testament)

Al Baqara 2:78 “And there are among them illiterates who know not the Book [ummiyoona la ya’lamoona’l kitaba]”

The God of the Bible, made it crystal clear to Abraham by emphasizing that his ‘only son Isaac’ – the one from his wife Sarah, and not from his concubine Hagar – was to be sacrificed, thus eliminating Ishmael from both the attempted sacrifice as well as from the blessing of inheriting the Promised Land.

Muslims have therefore been confronted for the last 1400 years by an extremely serious and monumental dilemma (there are another 28 of them in the Quran); either the Bible is false or the Quran is. Both, cannot be correct when they are giving conflicting versions of the same events.

Since the Bible preceded the Quran by at least 2100 years, one has to believe that the angel Gabriel gave Muhammad a completely altered version of the Torah from what was given to Moses ‘face to face’ by the Almighty and not passed down second hand and adulterated by any intermediary as is the case with the Quran.

More important than the antiquities of the Torah and Gospels is the indisputable fact, that Allah repeatedly asserts in the Quran, that it was he who revealed the Torah to Moses, and it is in that very Torah that the stories of Abraham, Isaac and Ismael are recorded that utterly controvert the version in Muhammad’s Quran.

One has therefore to assume, that Allah repeatedly and wilfully misguided Gabriel’s transmissions to Muhammad, by deliberately changing his previous revelations to Moses, which is inconceivable.

Since it is impossible to believe, that ANY Omniscient, Merciful and Compassionate God would have ever revealed all the Discrepancies, Hatemongering, Warmongering, Discrimination, Grammatical Errors, as well as the Historical and Character dislocations, Intolerance, Mendacities, Abnormalities, Inconsistencies and Time and Space Displacements that permeate the Quranic versions of the Biblical events, then only ONE conclusion can be possible.

That every letter, every word, every verse/aya and every chapter/surah in the Quran, are the product of Muhammad’s personal thoughts and imaginings, the secretions of his confused mind, based upon his distorted recollections of stories and tales he had heard from Jewish and Christian individuals.

The Quran actually represents Muhammad’s own alter ego, his auto-biography, but very cleverly projected into the unsuspecting mouths of Allah and Gabriel, to give them the aura of sanctity and divinity.

For the 10th time and based entirely on different verses, we have demonstrated that it is the Quran that proves beyond a shadow or even a reasonable doubt, that Allah is most definitely NOT the same as the God of Abraham, Moses and Jesus.

In conclusion: The author of the Quran was the ventriloquist Muhammad, wherein Allah, Satan and Gabriel were and are his voices over.

Therefore, Muhammad, Allah, Gabriel and Satan are all Muhammad himself.

Islam is after all, not an Abrahamic revealed religion, but a Cult belief system; the Cult of Muhammad, and not a single Muslim from among 1,500,000,000, can prove anything in this article either wrong or untrue, because Muslims can never win a debate under the full light of knowledge, but only under the darkest abyss of other peoples’ ignorance
