ARABS-THE SEED OF ABRAHAM(as)

 

In this discourse, I would like to discuss, Insha'Allah(God Willing), the Arabs and their rights as the legitimate seed of Prophet Abraham(as). I will use the very scripture of the Jews and Christians, namely the Bible, as well as historical sources, to bring to light the grave injustice perpetrated against the Bani-Ishmael, or the Children of Ishmael, throughout history by both Christians and Jews. It is not my intention to disrespect either faith, namely Christianity and Judaism, but rather to show how both parties have deliberately distorted history and Biblical scripture in order to hide the legitimacy of Prophet Ishmael(as) as the first born son of Prophet Abraham(as), as well as his rights as the first born son which is supported by the very Bible of the Christians and the Jews, all for the purpose of their own pro-Zionist ideals. Let us all use reasoning and common sense and pursue this matter with an open mind free of hate and prejudice, Insha'Allah(God Willing).

 

In the story of Prophet Abraham(as), as told in the Old Testament of the Bible, it is said that Allah(swt) spoke to him and said;

 

“I promise that I will give you as many descendants as there are stars in the sky or grains of sand along the seashore.”  Genesis 22:16

 

It is very clear from this passage that Allah(swt) kept His promise. One has only to see that the first born son of Abraham(as), Ishmael(as); born from Hagar(ra) the Egyptian princess and being the father of the Arab Semitic Peoples, truly reflects the fulfillment of this promise. The seed of Abraham(as) through his first born son Ishmael(as) has indeed multiplied, just as Allah(swt) had promised. On the other hand, the Jews(the Sephardim Jews, not the pseudo Ashkenazim Jews of Europe) or Sephardic Semites have not multiplied in the same way as the Arabs have as to fulfill Allah’s(swt) promise made to Abraham(as). What could be any clearer than that fact? There is much more at issue here than can be fully explained. If we are to consider the fact that the ancient Jewish scholars and scribes altered many of the texts of the Torah(Taurat), thus creating the impression that it was Isaac(as), the younger son of Abraham(as) by Sarah(ra), that was to be Abraham’s(as) sacrifice to Allah(swt), it would be made very clear. The Holy Qur’an clearly states that the son of Abraham(as) that was to be sacrificed was Ishmael(as) and not Isaac(as) as is stated in the Torah. Oddly enough, although the name of Isaac(as) appears in the text of the Bible as the “Sacrificial” child, the Torah, in actuality, confirms that Ishmael(as) was indeed the “Sacrificial” child, if not by name, then by fact. In the story of the “Sacrifice”, found in Genesis 22:2, Allah(swt) says to Abraham(as), “…Take now thy son, thine only son…”. This statement in fact confirms that Ishmael(as) was to be the child sacrificed. At no time was Isaac(as) ever the only son of Abraham(as), whereas Ishmael(as) was Abraham’s(as) only son for 14 years, so Isaac(as) could not possibly be the child referred to as “thine only son” found in the Torah. In light of this information, people in general fail to realize what the “TRUE” sign of the covenant between Allah(swt) and Prophet Abraham(as) was. That sign was the “CIRCUMCSION” of all the male offspring and was instituted before the birth of Isaac(as). Ishmael(as) was 13 years of age when he was circumcised, one year before the birth of Isaac(as). This fact can be proven with the Torah of the Jews in Genesis 17:1-27. Many ignorant minded people, in order to disprove the validity of Ishmael(as) as the first born son of Abraham(as) and rightful heir to the promise made as first born (see Deuteronomy 21:16-17) have gone so far as to refer to Ishmael(as) as a “BASTARD” child (A’udhu-Billah). This flagrant lie is squashed by the very Torah of the Jews itself were it is written in Genesis 16:3,

 

“And she(Sarah) gave her(Hagar) to Abraham to be his ‘wife’.”

 

How can Ishmael(as) be a bastard child (A’udhu-Billah) if both Abraham(as) and Hagar(ra) were legally married? Regardless of the fact that the ancient scribes substituted the name of Ishmael(as) for that of Isaac(as), all evidence in the Torah points to the fact that the promise made from Allah(swt) to Abraham(as) was fulfilled in Prophet Ishmael(as). The corruption of the Torah by the scribes was brought to light in the book of Jeremiah 8:8 were it is written,

 

“How can you say, we are wise, since we have Yahweh’s Law? Look how it has been falsified by the lying pen of the scribes.”

 

This fact of corruption was also brought to light by Prophet Jesus(as) in the Gospel of Barnabas,

where Jesus(as) accuses the scribes and Pharisees of the same crime of changing the text of the Torah and substituting the name of  Ishmael(as) with that of Isaac(as). Incidentally, the Gospel of Barnabas is a non-canonical gospel written by one of the followers of Jesus(as) during his(Jesus) time in Palestine as opposed to the four canonical gospels which were written 70 to 115 years after by people who did not even know Jesus(as). Curiously, the Gospel of Barnabas is considered heresy by the Christian church. I would like to point out, however, that even though the Gospel of Barnabas pre-dates the four canonical Gospels and possesses more in the sense of historical authenticity, it should not be made a matter of dogma by the Muslims as it too possesses many historical inaccuracies. Now it should be mentioned that being a Muslim transcends any particular race, and even though the religion of Islam was born from Arabia, it is a religion that recognizes no racial differences, as we are all one under Almighty God. Further proof of the blessings of Almighty God being bestowed upon the Muslims can be found in the book of Genesis 12:2-3, where it reads;

 

“And I(God) will make a nation of thee(Abraham), and I(God) will bless them and make thy name(Abraham) great, and thou(Abraham) shalt be a blessing: and I(God) will bless them that bless thee(Abraham).”

 

My reason for emphasizing the name of Prophet Abraham(as) in the above verse is in order to prove my point of the blessings bestowed upon the Muslims. That proof is the sending of peace and exaltation upon the name of Prophet Abraham(as) whenever a Muslim performs his/her prayers. Five times a day, when a Muslim prays, he/she sends peace, blessings and exaltation upon the name of Prophet Abraham(as). A Muslim will never end their prayers without sending peace upon the name of Prophet Abraham(as) and his family. Now I ask; in what manner of prayer does a Jew, or a Christian for that matter, send any form of blessings upon the name of Prophet Abraham(as)? When was the last time a Jew or Christian sent any form of blessing upon the name of Prophet Abraham(as)? Can the above mentioned proof be any clearer with respect to the blessings bestowed upon the Muslims by Almighty God? I believe the next time either a Jew or Christian disputes the blessings upon the Muslims, it is prudent to remind them of this verse from the Bible, their own book, as well as to ask them if they can recall the last time they sent any form of blessings upon the name of Prophet Abraham(as) in their prayers, as well as after merely mentioning his name, “ie..Prophet Abraham(as-peace be upon him)”, just as the Muslims do. It is a safe conclusion that they will not recall such a time.

 

Now that we have the legitimacy of Ishmael(as) and the Arabs established, let us now concentrate on the Jews. Who is really a Jew? Only those of the Jewish (Tribe of Judah) race or Israelites can be called Jews. It should be pointed out, however, that the term “Jewish” was totally alien to Prophet Abraham(as) as well as Isaac(as).

Prophet Abraham(as) was not a Jew, nor is there any mention in the Bible of him being a Jew. This is a word that came into being long after him, and it stems solely from the tribe of Judah.

Of all the twelve tribes of Israel, Judah was one of only two remaining tribes long after the Diaspora brought upon the Israelites by the Babylonians. From that name stems the term Jew or Jewish, and it was a means to establish an identity for themselves separate from that of the other eleven tribes. So while the terms Jew, Jewish and Judaism have come to be the only words synonymous with this race of people today, they where terms unknown to Prophet Abraham(as), who was not a Jew, and would later be applied to only one of the twelve tribes (or Children) of Israel (Jacob). At that however, we are still left with the question; “Who is a Jew”? Are the Jews of today really Jews descended from the Tribe of Judah, the Children of Israel? Consider the following; if someone converts to Christianity, that person does not take the race of the Christians that convert him/her. So, while being of the Christian faith, race is outside the realm of the religion. Similarly, when one embraces Islam and says their prayers in Arabic, that person does not become an Arab. Actually, Arabs make up only 15% of the world’s total population of Muslims. Case in point is myself. I am of an Italian background, yet I am a Muslim, not an Arab. Another case in point is King Herod of the Bible. King Herod, while being an Arab, practiced Judaism, but was not a Jew by race. Jew and Judaism is both a religious and cultural institution as opposed to Islam and Christianity, which are both universal religions. Simply put, you are either a Jew or a non-Jew. Khazars from Russia and Central Asia that embraced Judaism, for political reasons, in the mid-seventh century prayed in Hebrew. Since they were already Khazars and other races, they could not very well become Jews because they could not change their race. Remember, Judaism is a religion which is based on race, that being the Jewish race. Thus, the non-Biblical peoples of Khazar and Central Asia that adopted Judaism, for political reasons, as their religion cannot be considered Jews, since they have no links with the Biblical Jews at all. So the promise made by Almighty God to give a homeland to His people(???), as the Zionist Jews refer to themselves and endorsed by Zionist Christianity, does not include those who converted to Judaism, but only to the Sephardim or Biblical Jews. If truth be told, much in the way of Hebrew literature refutes the notion that the Jews stand above all peoples, while the rest of the world is nothing but “Goyam” (Filth). I refer you to the following Talmudic teachings;

 

"No one can become a Priest or Levite unless he is so born.

   But if anyone wishes to become a holy and righteous man,

   he can do so even though he is a non-Jew. Kindness,

   holiness and piety are not hereditary and are not the

   possession of an exclusive race or nation. Justice and piety

   are acquired through one's own deeds."

   Midrash Rabbah Numbers 8

 

  "Not only the Jew is sacred, but everyone who is loyal to G-d

   and walks in the path of righteousness has in himself some

   particle of the Divinity, and G-d will provide for him in his time

   of need as He provided for the Priest and Levite in the time

   of yore."                       

   Moses Maimonides, Mishneh Torah

 

  "Heaven and earth I call to be witnesses, Be it non-Jew or 

   Jew, man or woman, man-servant or maid-servant, according

   to the quality of the deeds of every human being does the

   Holy Spirit of G-d rest upon him."

   Yalkut Shimoni 42

 

Not withstanding that bit of information, the theory being put forward by the descendants of Europeans that converted to Judaism of a Jewish homeland is, therefore, without any legal basis in Biblical terms. These European Jews are Ashkenazim and not Sephardim and are therefore without any Semitic origins. There is no validity to the claim of these pseudo Zionist Jews of Europe in wanting to create a homeland in Palestine and establishing the “ILLEGAL” State of Israel. So the case of a person being a Jew is very clear, from the Bible, since one cannot change one’s race.

 

The present “ILLEGAL” State of Israel is not a state created by Biblical Sephardim Semitic Jews, but rather by European Ashkenazim Non-Semitic Jews who had converted to Judaism, for political reasons, centuries ago. The idea of a Zionist State was the brain child of Baron Theodor Herzl, who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1837 of the Judaic faith and not as a person of the Jewish race. The fact remains, the only people who have a right to refer to themselves as the Children of Israel are those who were banished from Palestine in the Diaspora of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon around 600 BC and, over time, found themselves in North Africa, the Middle East, Spain, Kashmir and Afghanistan. To this day, in both Kashmir and Afghanistan, there are tribes who refer to themselves as the Bani Israel or Children of Israel. Incidentally, these same Children of Israel are of the Islamic faith; they are Muslims. In this instance I would like to refer you, dear reader, to the book,

 

“The Thirteenth Tribe” by Arthur Koestler.

 

Arthur Koestler was a Jew born in Budapest, Hungary in 1905. In his search for his Semitic origins, he discovered that he had no Semitic origins along with the majority of the Jews of his time, which of course has carried on into the present day. His book exposes this fact as well as a detailed history of the Jews of the Khazarian Empire and their conversion to Judaism for political reasons. It seemed that the King of Khazar did not want to become sub-servant to either, the Christian Byzantium Empire, nor the Islamic Empire by embracing either faith and as such mandated that the religion of the Khazarian Empire would henceforth become Judaism. Again I stress the point; they became Jews for political reasons.

 

In conclusion I would like to clarify two points. First, I will no doubt be labeled and accused of being “Anti-Semitic” for bringing to light the truth of today’s Jews, however, that will be a false accusation built on the lie created by these Zionist Jews of today. Considering the Ashkenazim European background of these Jews, which is proven using both historical facts and evidence, there is absolutely nothing Semitic about them. This term “SEMITE” has been both hijacked and monopolized by these Zionists and used whenever someone opposes them. The Palestinian Arabs, on the other hand, are indeed of Semitic origins, unlike their oppressors, regardless of whether they are Christian or Muslim and have every right to the land of Palestine. Secondly, I would like to once again state that the State of Israel is an Illegal State, endorsed by the western world (USA, Britain, France, etc…) and the Pro-Zionist Christian Movement, all of which are turning a blind eye to the atrocities being committed by the Zionist Jews to the hapless Palestinian Arabs (Christians and Muslims alike) who are the rightful heirs to that land. I refer you, dear reader, to the following 6 books for further study;

 

1.       Palestine Papers-The Seeds of  Conflict” by Doreen Ingrams and John Murray

2.       “The Palestine Problem” by Pamela Ferguson

3.       “Publish it Not-The Middle East Cover Up” by Christopher Mayhew and Michael Adams

4.       “They Dare to Speak” by Paul Findley(former US Congressman)

5.       “Holy War” by Karen Armstrong

6.       “Forcing God’s Hand” by Grace Halsell(former White House Reporter)

 

As well as all documented evidence of Dr. Israel Shahak, the Chairman of the Israeli League for Human and Civil Rights and a Jew himself who publicly spoke out against his fellow Jews about the torture of the Palestinian Arabs. It should be kept in mind, dear reader, that there is a great difference between Judaism and Zionism. Judaism is a religion whereas Zionism is a political movement.

 

I am not anti-Jew (I refrain from using the term anti-Semitic for reasons which have been made clear in this chapter); I have many wonderful friends who are Jewish. What I am, however, is anti-Zionist and not surprisingly, many Jews are anti-Zionist also. It is to this Zionist attitude that the contents of this chapter are aimed at. I will say this; however, that history shows the destructive results of Zionism which should in no way be mistaken or confused with the religion of Judaism. Zionism is a political movement whereas Judaism is a religion. The Palestinian people are an oppressed people, oppressed by overwhelming forces. It is very easy to sit and watch news programs painting the Palestinians as terrorist monsters, but it should be pointed out that the Palestinian people did not engage in any terrorist activities prior to 1967, which was the result and not the cause of Israeli repression in the occupied territories. Up until that time, the Zionist movement was the responsible party for the propagation of terrorism. For example, “The Stern Gang” who began terrorizing the Palestinian people as far back as the 1930s and 1940s, “Lahome Herut Israel” or the “LHI” who, on December 5, 1946, threatened the life of the Under Secretary of Foreign Affairs (in London). The assassination of Count Folke Bernadotte by Israeli terrorists as well as the massacre at Deir Yassin, just to name a few. And, let us not forget the obliteration of Palestinian villages such as Imwas, Yalu and Beit Nuba. Without question, the “Balfour Declaration” has resulted in one of the worst tragedies in known history, to which human rights and decency are suffering at the hands of cruel taskmasters. Although I will no doubt be labeled as anti-Semitic due to the contents of this chapter, regardless of the fact that I have fully explained the term “Semite” in light of the Jews of today and the Arab people, I feel perhaps that further clarification is required with respect to the definition of the word “Semite”. The Winston Canadian Dictionary defines the word “Semitic” as follows;

“Semitic, adj. Pertaining to the Semites, a speech family comprising Esp. the Hebrews, Arabs, Assyrians and Aramaeans.”

To label the Arabs as anti-Semitic, as is the case in light of recent world events, is utter nonsense being that they themselves are Semitic. So how do the Jews of today fit in considering that their primary language is Yiddish and not Hebrew, Arabic or Aramaic as is dictated in the above definition? The term “Anti-Semitic” has become much too loose in today’s society fuelled by ignorance of the true meaning and misuse of the term, either intentional or unintentional. As I have already shown, there is nothing Semitic about the majority of Jews today. But in spite of that, there are many pious God Fearing Jews who are themselves anti-Zionist, such as Dr. Israel Shahak, and are ashamed of what their own fellow Jews are doing to the hapless Palestinian Arabs in their own homeland. We should never allow our own personal feelings towards the deeds of a misguided few, namely Zionists, to cause us to show hatred towards anyone, namely Jews, in general. We are all brothers and sisters under Almighty God, regardless of race, creed or colour. We can only hope and pray that, Insha’Allah(God Willing), the grave injustice perpetrated against the Palestinian Arabs, both Christian and Muslim alike, by these pseudo Zionist Jews will be rectified. These pseudo Zionist Jews have proven themselves to be among the most ruthless people of recent history.

Keep in mind, dear reader; I am differentiating between Zionists Jews and God Fearing Jews. Their (the Zionist Jews) false claim as God’s Chosen People leads them to believe that they are above any law and thus feel they have a right to commit crimes against humanity, all with the blessing of the Pro-Zionist West who are of the opinion that, since the Jews are God’s Chosen People, whatever they do, it’s as if God Himself is doing it. It would be, without question, beneath the Majesty of Almighty God if He were to choose one group of people above all His Creation. Insha’Allah(God Willing), this treachery will one day be exposed and the truth will finally be revealed, Insha’Allah(God Willing).

 

May Allah(swt) guide us all to the truth, Insha’Allah(God Willing).
