The Geological Miracle in Noble Verses 30:2-5 (the place where the Romans were defeated).

 

 

 

How many years is "few years" and "many years"?

The sections of this article are:

1-  The Christian anti-Islam claim exists in the Bible itself.
2-  An addition from brother
Karim, one of the site's authors.

 

 

1-   The Christian anti-Islam claim exists in the Bible itself:

The "Answering Islam" team raised objections against the Noble Quran for using "few years" as a promise for a Prophecy fulfillment.  Yet, their very own Bible used the same term, and also "many years", for Prophecy foretelling as well.

Let us look at the following:

"The Roman Empire has been defeated- In a land close by; but they, (even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious- Within a few years. With God is the Decision, in the past and in the Future: on that Day shall the Believers rejoice- With the help of God. He helps whom He will, and He is exalted in might, most merciful.  (The Noble Quran, 30:2-5)"

Daniel 11:19-21
19 After this, he will turn back toward the fortresses of his own country but will stumble and fall, to be seen no more.
20 "His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor. In a few years, however, he will be destroyed, yet not in anger or in battle.
21 "He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue.

Leviticus 25:51-53
51 If many years remain, he must pay for his redemption a larger share of the price paid for him.
52 If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, he is to compute that and pay for his redemption accordingly.
53 He is to be treated as a man hired from year to year; you must see to it that his owner does not rule over him ruthlessly.

1 Kings 17:1-3
1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word."
2 Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah:
3 "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan.

Job 16:21-23
21 on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.
22 "Only a few years will pass before I go on the journey of no return.

 


As we clearly see, their laughable point is soundly refuted in these few examples.

 

 

2-  An addition from brother Karim, one of the site's authors:

Note:  Brother Karim's addition below proves that the Biblical verses of Daniel 12 to 13 years!

Color and underline emphasis below are mine.

I did some research on the prophecie mentioned in Daniel 11:19, i found
this:

________________________________________________________________________


DANIEL 11:19 "Then he shall turn his face toward the fortress of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found." (NKJV)

As a consequence of the Roman victory over Antiochus III, the outlying
provinces of the Seleucid empire again reasserted their independence.
With his kingdom now reduced to Syria, Mesopotamia, and western Iran,
Antiochus III was in dire need of funds with which to pay Rome for the cost of the war. In 187 BCE, while attempting to plunder a pagan temple in Babylon near Susa (Shushan), Antiochus III was murdered.

DANIEL 11:20 ""His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain
the royal splendor. In "a few years", however, he will be destroyed, yet
not in anger or in battle." (NIV)

Antiochus III's eldest son, Seleucus IV Philopater, took over after his
father's death. Due to the heavy debt burden imposed by Rome, he was
forced to seek an ambitious taxation policy on his shrunken empire. This
included heavy taxation on the people of Israel. In fact, Seleucus IV even sent his treasurer, Heliodorus, to the Temple in Jerusalem to extract money.

The Roman senate decided to trade hostages; therefore, they ordered Seleucus IV to send his son Demetrius, the heir to the throne, to Rome. In return, the Romans released Seleucus IV's younger brother, Antiochus IV. When released, Antiochus IV went to Athens.

In 175 BCE after Demetrius had been sent away to Rome, Seleucus IV was poisoned by his minister Heliodorus. Some historians think that Heliodorus desired the throne for himself, while others believe that Antiochus IV was behind the murder. Seleucus' young son, (another Antiochus - age 5) was put on the throne in his place. However, Heliodorus was the actual power behind the throne.

SELEUCUS IV PHILOPATOR 187-175 BC assassinated, son of Antiochus III,
born c. 217 BC. (HELIODORUS, a non-Seleucid, briefly usurped the throne in 175 BC; fate uncertain.)

let's count: 187 BCE  - 175 BCE = 12/ 13 years, yet these hypocrites attack the quran when they scream a few years must be 3 to 9 years (which off course is not true) , how more hypocrite can they be !
