Rebuttals to Sam Gerrans and Dan Gibson:

  • Jesus is more than a Rasul (Prophet).
      
  • Deuteronomy 4:2 clearly declares that the Bible is corrupt!  Also, which "Book" is the People of the Book?
  •   

    Was Prophet Muhammad from Petra or Mecca?

  • Prophet Muhammad was from Petra, not Mecca?  The entire thread on this website's blog.
      
  • http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,2911.msg13880.html#msg13880  My detailed rebuttal to the points.

    "NWO cleanse, take your time, take a deep breath, get comfortable and write a summary...it would be easier for brother Albarra and the others to discuss your points..."

      
    My Response:

    I'll do it for him, akhi.  Here is the video and here are the points:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inJ1mCIsz5A&t=53s

    1-  Mecca called "the mother of all cities" refers to it being the center of all trading routes.  This is false because Petra was the center of the trading routes.

    RESPONSE:  Your author, NWO Cleanse, - Sam Gerrans, - imposed this meaning on the Quranic term to the Holy City of Mecca.


    2-  Mecca was not found on any map until around year 900 AD, 300 years after Prophet Muhammad came.  

    RESPONSE:  No proof.  Yet, we have ample physical proofs that Mecca existed far earlier than this.  See above.


    3-  Mecca does not have any substantial valley or mountain surrounding it, "which is part of the Quranic concept of a holy site"??

    RESPONSE:  Where did your Sam Gerrans come up with this lie??  The Glorious Quran does not give this criteria or condition for any holy site!  Also, Mecca does have surrounding mountains, - MOUNT ARAFAT is used in the pilgrimage, - and it does have the underground stream of Zamzam, which fills the Well of Zamzam and it sustains life there.

    Then he goes on to say that Petra has deep routes and that supposedly matches the Glorious Quran's "deep routes" statement about Muslims coming from all over the world to do Hajj (pilgrimage).  And he talked about the doomed civilizations that were mentioned in the Glorious Quran were all located in Northern Arabia.  

    RESPONSE:  The Arabs in central Arabia were fresh and had no corrupt scriptures like the Jews and Christians were.  They were ready for a new Prophet and new Scripture, and this is one of the reasons why Allah Almighty chose them:

    ‏34:44 ومااتيناهم من كتب يدرسونها وماارسلنا اليهم قبلك من نذير

    [034:044] Although, prior to you We did not give them books they could study كتب يدرسونهاnor did We send a warner towards themوماارسلنا اليهم قبلك من نذير.

    This would not apply to the northern Arabs around Petra, because they were under the Christians' rule at the time.  The central Arabs were nomadic people and had no scriptures and no Prophets.



    Silencing Mr. Sam Gerrans:

    I finished the video and it has ample problems.  All wishful thinking, conjecture and bias towards Petra.  Again, there are points that you just can't refute:

    1-  Muslims by the MILLIONS flock to pilgrimage to Mecca, not to Petra.  If Muslims were flocking to Petra by the THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS during the early days of Islam, then they would not be flocking today to Mecca.  And we would certainly have a record for it (Petra), which we do not.


    2-  The graves of Prophet Muhammad and many of his companions are in Medina and Mecca and near by lands.  Yes, some are in Northern Arabia due to the battles with the Romans and Persians, and many ended up settling there.  But the Prophet's grave is in Medina!  Can you refute that?


    3-  The four Islamic Rightly Guided Caliphs, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman and Ali ruled in Medina.  Ali later migrated to Iraq, but he was elected in Medina and began his rule in Medina.  Uthman was killed in Medina.  Omar was assassinated by the Persians in Medina.  Abu Bakr fought the apostates from Medina.  Ali migrated to Iraq from Medina.  The Muslims liberated Mecca with 10,000 Muslims army.  And it's even prophesied in the Bible:

    Nothing mentioned about Petra.

    Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]

    Here are some of my favorite Stunning Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran from among the tens (10s) that are listed in the main sections, below:

    1-  Here is one stunning Numerical Miracle, from the 10s below, for you:

    The Glorious Quran has 114 Chapters. The sum of those Chapters is 6555 (1+2+...+114 = 6555). There are also 6236 Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran. Now, IF YOU ADD EACH CHAPTER # with the number of its Verses, then you get a list of numbers. So 1 (first Chapter) + 7 (# of its Verses) = 8. Do this for all Chapters.

    1-  The sum of the odd numbers from the list = 6555.
    2-  The sum of the even numbers from the list = 6236.

    See the XLS file for 100% confirmation.
      

    2-  The Great Miracle.  Allah Almighty in the Holy Quran called the Number 19 Miracle "One of the Mighty Ones (Miracles)" (74:30-37) [1] [2].  See the 100s of Noble Verses that clearly testify to this Great Miracle.  Also, did you know that Allah Almighty Said in Surat Nuh (that's Noble Chapter Nuh (Noah)) that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years among his people. 

    Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah is exactly written in 950 Letters [1] [2]!  You can thoroughly see this in the scanned images that thoroughly verify every single Noble Letter, in the links.  Click on the links to see the many other Numerical Miracles in the Holy Quran.  Also, see the Numerical Miracles section along with all of the other great sections.  Also, 1,000s of examples in zip & PDF (fonts) files all demonstrated in this article!

      
    3-  19 X 115 = 2185 Number 19 and BASMALA Miracle.  The total numerical value of Noble Verses 74:30-37 themselves, which are the heart of the Number 19 Miracle, has a stunning Miracle in it.  The value of these Noble Verses matches the multiplication of the BASMALA's number of letters (19 Letters) and their total numerical values (115): 19 X 115 = 2185.  The Basmala, which full text in Arabic means "In the Name of Allah The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful" is the Key to the Glorious Quran.  It is recited first before reading the Holy Quran, and it is also obligatory upon every Muslim to start with the Basmala before starting any task.  Again, 1,000s of examples in zip & PDF (fonts) files all demonstrated in this article!

      
    4-  Please also checkout the many hundreds (100s) of Great Numerical Miracles, and the many tens (10s) of other Great Scientific Miracles:

    The Glorious Quran declares that the earth is spherical: [1]
      
    Allah Almighty in the Glorious Quran said that earth is:

           -  Spherical: "egg-shaped" [1].
           -  Is rotating around itself.
           -  Is moving in space in curvy orbits [2].
           -  Is in constant motion.
           -  Is suspended in space.
           -  Is swimming in space.
           -  Is traveling through the constantly expanding universe [3].
           -  The sunsetless North Pole miracle in the Glorious Quran [4]. 

  • At the top of the North Pole, the sun never sets, and I showed the video for that, and also quoted the scientific sources for that. Also in the lands near by, it almost never sets either, and I quoted sources for that as well, and also showed pictures of the "polar night" skies on these lands.
  •        -  The Glorious Quran also speaks about many earths [5] and not just earth.
           -  The Glorious Quran predicts
    11 planets in our solar system [6].

      
    This is also all demonstrated in good details in the following
