According to most of the Quranic verses, Muhammad did not consider his revelations as being the beginning of a new religion but only the perfection of the previous ones.
Muhammad insisted that his revelations merely confirmed already existing scriptures.
This is why it is astounding how the Ahadith and later Muhammadan scholars turned it into a separate religion while its very foundations and contents are rooted in the
Bible and Scriptures.
2: 130And who turns away from the religion of Abraham but such as debase their souls with folly? Him We chose and rendered pure in this world: and he will be in the Hereafter in the ranks of the righteous.
2: 135They say: "Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (to salvation)." Say thou: "Nay! (I would rather) the religion of Abraham the true and he joined not gods with Allah."
5: 3Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat blood the flesh of swine and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah that which hath been killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a headlong fall or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows:that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me.
This day have I perfected your religion for you completed my favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any forced by hunger with no inclination to transgression Allah is indeed Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful. 691 692 693 694
# 691 Cf. ii. 173 and nn. 173 and 174. The prohibition of dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which other names than that of Allah have been invoked, has been there explained. (5.3)
692 If an animal dies by strangling, or by a violent blow, or a headlong fall, or by being gored to death, or by being attacked by a wild animal, the presumption is that it becomes carrion, as the life-blood is congealed before being taken out of the body. But the presumption can be rebutted. If the life-blood still flows and the solemn mode of slaughter (zabh in the name of Allah is carried out, it becomes lawful as food. (5.3)
693 This was also an idolatrous rite, different from that in which a sacrifice was devoted to a particular idol or a false god. (5.3)
*** Almost every single one of the dietry PROHIBITIONS was plagiarised, plundered, pirated and/or perverted by Muhammad, from the ones in theTorah/ Hebrew Bible.
"This day have I perfected your religion for you"Allah is NOT telling the followers of Muhammad that he has revealed a NEW religion to them but that by following the Quran he has guided them AWAY from Paganism to Monotheism ***
694 Gambling of all kinds is forbidden; ii. 291. A sort of lottery or raffle practised by Pagan Arabs has been described in n. 241. Division of meat in this way is here forbidden, as it is a form of gambling#
3:67Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian but he was true in faith and bowed his will to Allah's (which is Islam) and he joined not gods with Allah.
3:68Without doubt among men the nearest of kin to Abraham are those who follow him as are also this Apostle and those who believe; and Allah is the Protector of those who have faith.
3:83Do they seek for other than the Religion of Allah? While all creatures in the heavens and on earth have willing or unwilling bowed to His Will (accepted Islam) and to Him shall they all be brought back.
3:84Say: "We believe in Allah and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham Isma`il Isaac Jacob and the Tribes and in (Books) given to Moses Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord; we make no distinction between one and another among them and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam)."
3: 85If anyone desires a religionother than Islam (submission to Allah) never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).
3:95Say: "Allah speaketh the truth: follow the religion of Abraham the sane in faith; he was not of the pagans."
# 421 The greater freedom of Islam in the matter of the ceremonial law, compared with the Mosaic Law, is not a reproach but a recommendation. We go back to an older source than Judaism,-the institutions of Abraham. By common consent his Faith was sound, and he was certainly not a Pagan, a term contemptuously applied to the Arabs by the Jews #
*** Muhammadan Islam is nothing more than a TOSSED UP SALAD of beliefs, fetishes, ceremonial laws and traditions that Muhammad inserted in his Quran to give his Quraysh tribe and the other Pagan Arabs a scripture emulating those of the Jews and Christians ***
4:163We have sent thee inspiration as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him;We sent inspiration to Abraham Ismail Isaac Jacob and the Tribes to Jesus Job Jonah Aaron and Solomon and to David We gave the Psalms. 668 669
# 668 First we have a general statement: that inspiration was sent to many Messengers, and the inspiration was of the same kind as that sent to the Prophet Muhammmad, forAllah's Message is one.
Note that what is spoken of here is Inspiration, not necessarily a Book. Every nation or group of people had a messenger: x. 47. Some of these messengers have been mentioned by name in the Qur-an, and some not: iv. 164. (4.163)
669 Cf. ii. 136 and iii. 84. The list here given is in three groups. (1) The first group, Abraham's family, is the same as in ii. 136, (where see the note) and in iii. 84. (2) Then we have the prophets Jesus, Job and Jonah, who symbolise patience and perseverance. (3) Then we have Aaron the priest and Solomon the King, both great figures, but each subordinate to another primary figure, viz., Moses (mentioned in the next verse) and David (mentioned at the end of this verse). David's distinction was the Psalms, some of which are still extant. Though their present form is different from the original and they do undoubtedly include Pslams not written by David, the collection contains much devotional poetry of a high order #
*** The translators and interpreters of the Quran invariably insert their own prejudices and lies into their writings to mis-inform, deceive and dis-inform the unwary reader and hence make them fall for their tricks and believe their mendacities.
No where can any Muhammadan 'scholar' point out a single verse in the Quran which asserts that thePeople of the Book, the Jews and Christians, have ever CHANGED, ALTERED or RE-ARRANGED the TEXT of their Holy Books.
Let us for one instance of time assume that they had changed the TEXT of their Holy Books, then let any follower of Muhammad bring to the attention of an ignorant world such a book as an example and proof of their allegations.
No human being on the face of Planet Earth can do so because none exist except in the PERVERTED, EVIL, JEALOUS and DEPRAVED minds of the followers of Muhammad ***
4:125Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah does good and follows the way of Abraham the true in faith? For Allah did take Abraham for a friend.
*** Since the 'religion' of Abraham is the ULTIMATE and purest form, then Muhammadan Islam, which pretends to follow it, cannot be also a NEW religion.
It has been theIsraelites and their descendants, the Jews,after all, who were the ONLY followers of Abraham who have kept their faith in the One and Only God for at least 2300 years, while the alleged descendants of Ishmael, Muhammad and his fellow Arabs, wallwoed in PAGANISM.
It is with their usual obscene degree of HYPOCRICY and with a Depraved PATHOLOGICAL indifference to Reality, to Facts, to History, to Justice, to Morality to Religion and to Language, that the later followers of Muhammad claim Religious, Ethical and Moral superiority over the People of the Book,without whom the Quran would and could not EXIST ***
6:161Say: "Verily my Lord hath guided me to a way that is straight a religion of right the path (trod) by Abraham the true in faith and he (certainly) joined not gods with Allah."
12:38"And I follow the ways of my fathers Abraham Isaac and Jacob;and never could we attribute any partners whatever to Allah: that (comes) of the grace of Allah to us and to mankind: yet most men are not grateful. 1691
# 1691 Again the same note of personal modesty. 'You may think I am as young as you, or younger. Yes, but I have the heritage of great men renowned for wisdom and truth, such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob. Surely what they knew is worthy of respect. Never did they swerve a hair's breadth from the Gospel of Unity. It is not that we boast. It was Allah's grace that taught us and Allah's grace is teaching all mankind. But men show their ingratitude by inventing other so-called gods' #
22:78And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive (with sincerity and under discipline): He has chosen you and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslimsboth before and in this (Revelation); that the Apostle may be a witness for you and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer give regular Charity and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector the Best to protect and the Best to help!
# 2862 The Jewswere hampered by many restrictions, and their religion was racial. Christianity, as originally preached, was a hermit religion: "sell whatsoever thou hast" (Mark x. 21); "take no thought for the morrow" (Matt. vi. 34). Islam, as originally preached, gives freedom and full play to man's faculties of every kind. It is universal, and claims to date from Adam: father Abraham is mentioned as the great Ancestor of those among whom Islam was first preached (Jews, Christians, and Arabs) #
*** As many times as the followers of Muhammad attempt to deceive and mislead the unwary reader, I also, must counter with the facts as recorded in their history as well as in and by the the records of others.
Since according to the Quran, it was Allah who revealed the Torah to Moses, and since ALL the RESTRICTIONS in theTorahwere ordained by God to Moses, then these restrictions are DIVINE and not MAN MADE and have to be obeyed by the Israelites and the Jews.
There are numerous verses in the Quran and the Ahadith that ASSERT the concept of human PRE-DESTINATION and the total lack of any human FREEWILL.
It is therefore obvious that the translator is DELIBERATELY falsifying the actual message in the Quran to deceive the readers into believing that this message is peaceful and benign ***
42: 13The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah--the which We have sent by inspiration to thee--and that which We enjoined on Abraham Moses and Jesus: Namely that ye should remain steadfast in Religion and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).
46:9Say: "I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the apostles nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I follow but that which is revealed to me by inspiration: I am but a Warner open and clear."
# 4782 'What is there to forge? All prophets have taught the Unity of Allah and our duty to mankind. I bring no new fangled doctrine, but etemal truths that have been known to good men through the ages. It is to reclaim you that I have come. I do not know what will be your fate for all this callousness, nor what you will do to me. But this I know, that I am preaching truth and righteousness as inspired by Allah. My duty is only to proclaim aloud and clearly the Message entrusted to me by Allah. The rest I leave to Allah.' #
*** Muhammadan Islam is neither a new religion nor is it a religion in the same sense as those of the People of the Book,because Muhammadan Islam is a CULT; it is the CULT of MUHAMMAD.
The followers of Muhammad have no choice but tO IMITATE, EMULATE and/or FOLLOW, slavishly, Muhammad'smanners, deeds, sayings, morals, thoughts and/or instructions.
They are after all, only obeying and immitating a HUMAN BEING and not a DIVINE ***
