Arabs - The Seed of Abraham (peace be upon him)

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 Allahs(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 Abrahams(as) sacrifice to Allah(swt), it would be made very clear. The Holy Quran 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 Abrahams(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 (Audhu-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 (Audhu-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 Yahwehs 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,
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
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.
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
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
all the twelve tribes of
"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
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

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 todays 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

6. Forcing Gods 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 todays 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, InshaAllah(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 Gods 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 Gods Chosen People, whatever they do, its 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. InshaAllah(God Willing), this treachery will one day be exposed and the truth will finally be revealed, InshaAllah(God Willing).
May Allah(swt) guide us all to the truth, InshaAllah(God Willing).
