Wa Alaikum As'salam Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuh dear brother Idris,

Jazaka Allah Khayr akhi.  Go ahead and post your article and link the images to an outside site.  I then will update your post and re-link your images to my website after I upload your images.  I've done this with all of your previous posts and with a few brothers' posts here as well.

I have setup the blog to restrict certain functions on all except my account to prevent problems.  This helps me keep the maintenance of this blog simple and always healthy for all :), insha'Allah.  Hope this will work for you, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

As-Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah,

Thank you dear brother Osama, I would need a practical help, but I’ll explain after I finish entirely my post about Isaiah 29:12.
For now, can I upload an image directly from my PC ? I don't see such a function.

As-Salam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraketuh,

I have not participated in this forum for long time.

I just want to tell you about a very interesting details which would be - as I think - a factual confirmation of the view that Prophet Mohammed (SAAW) is mentioned in Isaiah 29:12. I find this new discovery as a welcome support for Muslim interpretation.

Muslims for a long time have seen Isaiah 29:12 as an allusion to Prophet Mohammed's (SAAW) first revelation which was given by Gabriel (AS) in the cave Hira. Indeed, a very suggestive description is given by Isaiah, pointing to the first experience which according to the Muslim tradition occurred in this place.

There is a certain word which appear in the text of Isaiah 29:12 to which Muslims did not paid attention, since it was "obscured" under the translation. It seems that this word was originally understood as a proper name for a geographic location.
Moreover, I found a further confirmation from two patristic authorities that the one who was giving this book to the "unlettered one" is the Holy Spirit which in Islam is non other than Gabriel himself (AS). As biblical scholars has also observed, the motif of "creating human from clay" is a part of the chapter 29 which thematically fits the story of al-'Alaq.

I will discuss here insha'Allah this finding, but in return I would need some help from you.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Research on "Good" in NT
« Last post by QuranSearchCom on March 12, 2019, 10:43:12 AM »
As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

Beefing up my www.answering-christianity.com/trinity_crucified.htm article, I am currently researching the following:

John 10:11 "I am the Good Shepherd...."
Good = kalos καλὸς (good, beautiful)
https://biblehub.com/lexicon/john/10-11.htm

Mark 10:18 ""Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone."
Good = agathon ἀγαθόν, agathos ἀγαθὸς
https://biblehub.com/lexicon/mark/10-18.htm

Agat is the root word.  Did it mean Divine or Supreme or Almighty in Greek 2,000 years ago? 



Why reject it on himself?

Why was Jesus offended by it?  Why did he refuse to call himself Agat or Agathon?  Now of course, Greek is not even the language Jesus spoke.  But even in this Greek, why is it forbidden for Jesus to be Agat?

Because it is for the Supreme Deity:


From https://canyoustandthetruth.com/what-does-agathon-mean/:
WHAT DOES “AGATHON” MEAN?
By Angeliki Anagnostou

The Ancient Greek word Ἀγαθόν [Agathón=good, benevolent, kind] refers to an aggregate of concepts encompassing all moral, intellectual and spiritual virtues of man. It must be thought of as an absolute state, with an existence which is independent and unaffected by time, space or any other change. Only The Supreme Deity, The Unified Being, The Monad, can be characterized by the term Ἀγαθός
......
Plato, in his Republic, gives us a definition of the term Ἀγαθόν:

[508e] «This reality, then, that gives their truth to the objects of knowledge and the power of knowing to the knower, you must say is the idea of Ἀγαθόν, and you must conceive it as being the cause of knowledge*, and the cause of truth in so far as they become known.
Yet, fair as they both are (knowledge and truth), you will think rightly in supposing Ἀγαθόν to be something different and fairer still than these.
But as for knowledge and truth, even as in our illustration [509a] it is right to deem light and vision as being sun like, but never to think that they are the sun, so here, it is right to consider these two (knowledge and truth) as being like Ἀγαθόν but to think that either of them is Ἀγαθόν, is not right.»

* Of Spiritual matter-less Knowledge


From https://epistole.wordpress.com/2009/03/26/the-meaning-of-aristotles-%CF%84%E1%BC%80%CE%B3%CE%B1%CE%B8%CF%8C%CE%BD-the-benefit-of-a-humanist-ethos/:

Contrary to those who see the phrase as a reference to the Trinity, Vermigli believes that τἀγαθόν refers to the “good itself” or the common good, which is the common form of the many naturally desired goods. A horse seeks after its own good, a dog its own good, and a human aims at its own good, but all things seek the good in general. If all things aimed at God or the supreme good there would be no natural end or reason for which each species was created, as if nature does not aim at its own preservation and perfection.  Vermigli recounts the interpretation of Leonardo Aretino (a.k.a Bruni; d. 1444) and George of Trabizond (d. 1486), who were led by the Greek article preceding the noun to interpret the phrase as a reference to the Trinity.  Instead, Vermigli follows the exegesis of Johannes Cardinal Bessarion (d. 1472).  “Bessarion, Nicene cardinal and the most learned man among the Greeks of the modern era, refuted this opinion, saying that Trapezuntius [Trabizond] should have been aware that in Greek when an article precedes a word it has a triple function.” (ibid, 22, 23)  Vermigli then adopts as his own the translation of the humanist Johannes Argyropoulos (d. 1487) who rendered τἀγαθόν as “the good itself.” (ibid)


Trinity is a lie and blasphemy!
