Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]
  

Allah Almighty also promised in several Divine Prophecies that He will show the Glorious Quran's Miracles to mankind:
  

1-  The root letters for "message" and all of its derivatives occur 513 times throughout the Glorious Quran.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the Prophets' and Messengers' actual names (Muhammad, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Lot etc....) were also all mentioned 513 times in the Glorious Quran.  The detailed breakdown of all of this is thoroughly listed here.  This Miracle is covered in 100s (hundreds) of Noble Verses.
  

2-  Allah Almighty said that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah (chapter Noah) is exactly written in 950 Letters.  You can thoroughly see the accurate count in the scanned images.
  

Coincidence?  See 1,000s of examples [1].  Quran's Stunning Numerical & Scientific Miracles.

  
Islam also thoroughly rejects as man-made lies the Trinity and Crucifixion [2].  Jesus was also thoroughly called
slave of GOD [1] in both the OT and NT.

The Bible's holy stones.  They even get anointed with oil. 

The black stone is not holy in Islam.  It was no more than an asteroid sent by GOD Almighty to determine the location of where the Kaaba to be built by Abraham and Ishmael, peace be upon them.  And today, it is placed in one of the Kaaba's corners to mark the start and finish of the 7 circumambulations (tawaaf) around the Kaaba.

It was the pagans who plagiarized Islam's practices, not the other way around.  The Bible also declares it.

 

  
     

The black stone in Islam is NOT sacred!

Prophet Muhammad Said:

لهدم الكعبة حجرا حجرا أهون من قتل المسلم 

"Demolishing the Kaaba completely is much easier upon Allah Almighty than shedding the blood of a single Believing Muslim." (Source)

  

So what is the black stone, and Why?

The black stone was a meteorite that was sent down by Allah Almighty to Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael, peace be upon both of them, to give the precise location of where the Kaaba was to be built by them.  We believe that Prophets Abraham and Ishmael built the Kaaba.  The black stone is placed in one of the corners of the Kaaba, and it serves as a starting and ending point for the Circumambulation (tawaaf) 7 times around the Kaaba, which is also 100% supported in the Bible's previous Scriptures.  All of Islam's Rituals are 100% supported by the previous Scriptures.  Please visit:

But as the Prophet said in the Hadith above, nothing is Holy about either the Kaaba or the Black Stone.  They are not objects of worship.  They are only part of Allah Almighty's House of Worship.  Also, Islam, Prophet Muhammad, and the House of GOD Almighty (Kaaba) in the Arabian Desert prophesied in the previous Scriptures:

The Bible also called the path to Mecca "THE PATH OF HOLINESS".

The Scientific Miracle of the Black Stone (also confirmed by NASA):

An AUDIO file from Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar: The black stone was proven to be a Meteorite sent from space.  Western Scientists have confirmed that the black stone, which resides near the Kaaba in the Holy City of Mecca, is an outside METEORITE OBJECT!

NASA'S CONFIRMATION:

""Stars" falling from the skies have been known since ancient times; rarely, stones are found that were tied to these "shooting stars". One such rock has been venerated by Islam (in its encased shrine in Mecca) for more than 1300 years. By the 19th Century, meteorites were identified correctly as samples from other parts of the Solar System. They are part of the nearly 500 tons of extraterrestrial rock material that reaches and enters the atmosphere each day. Most of that material is burned up by friction from the high speed of entry but meteoric dust can remain in the air and a very few individual blocks of material survive this passage to fall in the sea or on the ground as meteorites."  (Source)

"The second city of Saudi Arabia is Mecca which contains the holiest shrine in Islam, a great plaza with a rectangular structure containing a meteorite that is considered to have fallen into the Muslim world directly from Heaven. Devout Muslims make the Hajj, a pilgrimage to this shrine required at least once in a lifetime. Here it is as seen in a Quickbird image:"  (Source)

THE BLACK STONE IS NOT WORSHIPPED BY MUSLIMS

By
Abdul Haleem

  

Christians regularly to justify their idolatrous practices - such as prayers to Mary - by claiming that Muslims "worship" the Black Stone at the Kaaba in Makkah.

Having been on hajj let me answer this based both on history and my own experiences.   The Black Stone - Hajar al- Aswad - is NOT mentioned in the Quran.  The Black Stone is located about five feet from the ground on the East corner of the Kaaba (this corner is known as "al-rukn al-Aswad").

While there are traditions about kissing or touching the Stone, its real significance is as marker of the point at which one starts the Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Kaaba as part of hajj or omra.)  Even the traditions which talk about kissing or touching the stone are VERY CLEAR that the Stone is JUST A STONE!

BUKHARI:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 667: 

Narrated 'Abis bin Rabia:  Umar came near the Black Stone and kissed it and said "NO DOUBT, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND CAN NEITHER BENEFIT ANYONE NOR HARM ANYONE. Had I not seen Allah's Apostle kissing you I would not have kissed you."  

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 675:

Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father who said:  "Umar bin Al-Khattab addressed the Corner (Black Stone) saying, 'BY ALLAH! I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND CAN NEITHER BENEFIT NOR HARM. Had I not seen the Prophet touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you.' Then he kissed it and said, 'There is no reason for us to do Ramal (in Tawaf) except that we wanted to show off before the pagans, and now Allah has destroyed them.' 'Umar added, '(Nevertheless), the Prophet did that and we do not want to leave it (i.e. Ramal).'"

MUSLIM:

Book 007, Number 2914: 

Abdullah b. Sarjis reported:  I saw the bald one, i. e. 'Umar b. Khattib (Allah be pleased with him). kissing the Stone and saying: BY ALLAH. I AM KISSING WITH FULL CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE FACT THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND THAT YOU CAN NEITHER DO ANY HARM NOR GOOD; and if I had not seen Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) kissing you. I would not have kissed you. The rest of the hadith is the same.

The Stone is not be worshipped or regarded as anything but a marker.

===============================================

At hajj time you are actually unlikely to see the Black Stone: Masjid Al-Haram is just two crowded.  There is a line on the floor of the Masjid to tell you where the line of the Black Stone is.  Many hajis must perform Tawaaf NOT on the Kaaba floor but on the SECOND OR THIRD STORIES of the Majid Al-Haram!

On Levels #2 and #3 there are both marks on the floor and neon lights to show you where to start and stop tawaaf.

The scholars agree that waving in the direction of the Black Stone is sufficient recognition of its location as the start and stop of Tawaaf.

In actuality, waving in direction of the Black Stone is the best you will probably do at hajj time

=================================================

The Black Stone has had an interesting history during the Islamic period.  In 930 AD a ruler of Bahrain - who belonged to a branch of Ismailism known as the Karmatians - sacked Makkah and carried the Black Stone away for some 70 years until it was ransomed.

In the process, the Black Stone was cracked. It is now held together by a silver band.   The fact that Islam was able to function without the Black Stone for 70 years is one of the best illustrations that it is but a marker for Tawaaf - and NOT an object of worship.

  

  

An addition by me, Osama Abdallah:

The more I engage the Islam-hating Jews and Christians and read the Bible, the more I realize how empty their trinity religion is, and how empty their attacks on Islam are.  So the asteroid that was sent from space to Abraham and Ishamel to determine the location of where they were to build GOD Almighty's House in the Arabian desert (the Bible also mentioned this and prophesied it [2]) is idol worship in Islam according to them, because it is today placed in one of the Kaaba's corners to determine the starting and ending point of the 7 Circumambulation (tawaaf) around the Kaaba, which I've already shown in the links above that it is fully supported in the Bible, but somehow the following isn't considered idol worship to them using their own SILLY AND EMPTY STANDARDS.

  • Now again, see also the Bible's Holy Birds made of stone, wood and gold.
      
  • It was the pagans who plagiarized Islam's practices, not the other way around.  The Bible also declares it.
  •   

    Let us look at the Bible's sacred black stones:

    Genesis 28:18
    When Jacob got up early the next morning, he took the rock that he had used for a pillow and stood it up for a place of worship. Then he poured olive oil on the rock to dedicate it to God,

    So here we clearly see that the rock that Jacob, peace be upon him, used for sleeping and resting became a holy object of worship that needed to be anointed by having oil being poured on it.  We further read from the Bible about holy stones that GOD Almighty supposedly forbade the believers from even edging or trimming:

    Exodus 20:25
    25 If you ever build an altar for me out of stones, do not use any tools to chisel the stones, because that would make the altar unfit.

    Other translations of this verse:

    Exodus 20:25
    King James Version (KJV)
    25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of
    hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

    Exodus 20:25
    New American Standard Bible (NASB)
    25 If you make an altar of stone for Me, you shall not build it of cut stones, for if you wield your tool on it, you will profane it.

    Exodus 20:25
    Revised Standard Version (RSV)
    25 And if you make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of
    hewn stones; for if you wield your tool upon it you profane it.

    Exodus 24:4
    4 Then Moses wrote down what the Lord had said.  The next morning Moses got up early. He built an altar at the foot of the mountain and set up a large stone for each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

    Exodus 25:1-9
    The Sacred Tent
    1 The Lord said to Moses:
    2 Tell everyone in Israel who wants to give gifts that they must bring them to you.
    3 Here is a list of what you are to collect: Gold, silver, and bronze;
    4 blue, purple, and red wool; fine linen; goat hair;
    5 tanned ram skins; fine leather; acacia wood;
    6 olive oil for the lamp; sweet-smelling spices to mix with the oil for dedicating the tent and ordaining the priests;
    7 and onyx stones for the sacred vest and the breastpiece.
    8 I also want them to build a special place where I can live among my people.
    9 Make it and its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.

    Who was the sacrificed son?  [1] [2]

    Here is the short answer:

    From https://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,3150.msg15747.html#msg15747:

    Can anyone prove from bible that hazrat ismail (a.s.) was in Arab and Ibrahim (a.s.) was about to slaughter him?

    Both the Bible and the Glorious Quran agree that:

    1-  Ishmael's covenant was put on hold (pause) until the Jewish covenant comes to pass, and the latter generations come:

  • Like In Jeremiah and Isaiah verses, below, about Arabia's Promise to come later, Ishmael's name and Honor were reserved for Praise for the later generations.  Let us look at Noble Verse 37:108:
      
    37:108  وتركنا عليه في الاخرين
    [037:108] and left for him among the later folk
      
    Jeremiah 51:33
    33 For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon (Arabia) is like a threshing floor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.
      
    The Bible defines "Daughter of Babylon" to be Arabia.  There are three Babylons mentioned in the Bible.  Arabia was defined as the virgin daughter of Babylon.  This is because it never had a Divine Religion with Divine Revelations sent to it yet.  Jeremiah 51:33 says that the time of sending the Divine Religion of Islam to Arabia shall come.  And Noble Verse 37:108 says that Ishmael's Covenant to Mankind was put for the latter generations.
      
    Jews' dogs:  Jesus ended the Arabs being the Jews' dogs.  He said that Arabs have "great faith".  This is why he will return from the Arabs according to the Bible and Islam.

      

  • 2-  Ishmael's name means the GOD finally heard the Prayer.  Ishmael's name is a great proof that he was the sacrificed son.  He was born after long decades of frustration and long waits.  He was born after a long time of decades of desperationIsaac would not have been that big of a deal relatively speaking, because Ishmael was already born, and the long horrid desperation was long gone.  And Ishmael at the time was his only son, and for a long time too.  Ishmael was 13 years older than Isaac.  Peace be upon them all.

    The challenge wasn't just for Abraham to give up his son for GOD Almighty.  Any mere person can do this, even to pagan deities:

    [006:137]  Even so, in the eyes of most of the pagans, their "partners" made alluring the slaughter of their children, in order to lead them to their own destruction, and cause confusion in their religion. If God had willed, they would not have done so: But leave alone them and their inventions.

    While it was a test for Abraham to give up his son for GOD Almighty, but I believe it was also more of testing Abraham to give up what he longed for, and was desperate for, for many decades.  And it was also to honor Ishmael, the Prophet of Allah Almighty.  Peace be upon Abraham and his sons.

      

    It matters not:

    Let me make it absolutely clear that Islam does not stand and fall on:

    (a)-  Whether Ishmael was the sacrificed-to-be son or not.
    (b)-  Or whether Abraham and his children were Arabs or not.

    None of this matters in Islam.  We are only presenting what the Glorious Quran confirms here.  If Isaac was the sacrificed son, then it wouldn't matter.  We still say Peace be upon all of Allah Almighty's Prophets and Messengers.  And Isaac was certainly one of them, and we love Isaac and revere him as much as Ishmael and all of Allah Almighty's Prophets.  Peace be upon them all.

    And again, ethnicity has nearly no value in Islam:

    [049:013] O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

    As to Ishmael being an Arab, again, it matters not.  But if you care to know, Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac's father, was from Iraq.  Most Iraqis are Arabs.  Assyrians and others are a minority.  And even Assyrians and Kurds and others speak Arabic, and their bloods are mixed with Arabs.  Arabic had always been the dominant language in the Middle East and North and Central Africa for 20,000 years, if not even more.  And it's the language of the Holy Quran, Allah Almighty's Perfect and Miraculous Book with 1000s of Numerical and Scientific Miracles [1], and also Prophecies [2].  See literally the 1000s of STUNNING Miracles are listed here.  Also visit:

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah

      

    The following is the detailed answer....  

    1-  Who was the sacrificed son?

    Ishmael's Covenant was made for the latter generations according to both Islam and the Bible.  Let us look at Ishmael in great details:

  • Noble Verses 37:100-111 speak about Ishmael being the sacrifice.  Ishmael in these Noble Verses promised his father to be obedient to Allah Almighty’s Command for him to get slaughtered.
      
  • Noble Verse 19:54 confirms this Promise:
      
    19:54
     واذكر في الكتاب اسماعيل انه كان صادق الوعد وكان رسولا نبيا
      
    [019:054]  Also mention in the Book (the story of) Isma'il: He was (strictly) true to what he promised صادق الوعد, and he was an apostle (and) a prophet.
      
      
      
    Here is Ishmael's Promise:
      
    37:102 فلما بلغ معه السعي قال يابني اني ارى في المنام اني اذبحك فانظر ماذا ترى قال ياابت افعل ماتؤمر ستجدني ان شاء الله من الصابرين
      
      
    [037:102]  Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if God so wills one practising Patience and Constancy! ستجدني ان شاء الله من الصابرين"  
      
      
  • Noble Verse 37:112 talks about Allah Almighty gave Abraham the glad tidings of the coming of Isaac, who will be a Prophet.  But in the earlier Noble Verse 37:101, a glad tiding was already given for the other son, Ishmael.
      
      
  • Ishmael was put on PAUSE until the covenant of the Israelites comes to an end:
      


    Like In Jeremiah and Isaiah verses, below, about Arabia's Promise to come later, Ishmael's name and Honor were reserved for Praise for the later generations.  Let us look at Noble Verse 37:108:
      
    37:108  وتركنا عليه في الاخرين
    [037:108] and left for him among the later folk
      
    Jeremiah 51:33
    33 For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon (Arabia) is like a threshing floor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.
      
    The Bible defines "Daughter of Babylon" to be Arabia.  There are three Babylons mentioned in the Bible.  Arabia was defined as the virgin daughter of Babylon.  This is because it never had a Divine Religion with Divine Revelations sent to it yet.  Jeremiah 51:33 says that the time of sending the Divine Religion of Islam to Arabia shall come.  And Noble Verse 37:108 says that Ishmael's Covenant to Mankind was put for the latter generations.
      
      
    Here are several of the English translations Noble Verse 37:108:
     
    [037:108] And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations.
    [037:108] And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation).
    [037:108] And We left the following salutation to be bestowed on him by the latest posterity,
    [037:108] And We left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations (to come) in later times.
    [037:108] and left for him among the later folk
     
    A PAUSE WAS PUT ON ISHMAEL until later generations (after the Jewish Covenant comes to an end).  Also visit this PPT file: Ishmael was put on pause until the Israelites' Covenant passes.  See slides 32-38.  Both the Bible and Glorious Quran agree on this.
      
  • Now let’s see what the Bible says about Arabia and Ishmael…
  •   

    2-  The Bible’s Support for Ishmael:

    Even in the altered Bible, there is strong evidence that support that Ishmael was the son to be sacrificed.  Ishmael's name means "GOD Heard", which implies:

  • GOD finally heard my Prayers, or
  • GOD finally answered my Prayers.
       
      
    The Jews from birth are liars?
      
  • Bible says that Jews' from their essence were liars.  From their "birth" they were liars the Old Testament declares them.  This is another proof that the Bible is full of man-made corruption and fabrications, especially in the Jews' ancient history and stories.  Jeremiah 8:8 is thoroughly covered here.
      

  • Jews' dogs:  Jesus ended the Arabs being the Jews' dogs.  He said that Arabs have "great faith".  This is why he will return from the Arabs according to the Bible and Islam.

  •   

    Ishmael was 13 years older than Isaac, and Noble Verse 37:102 supports that Ishmael was a teenage boy:

  • 37:102 فلما بلغ معه السعي قال يابني اني ارى في المنام اني اذبحك فانظر ماذا ترى قال ياابت افعل ماتؤمر ستجدني ان شاء الله من الصابرين

    [037:102]  Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if God so wills one practising Patience and Constancy!"
  •   
    Ishmael was put on PAUSE until the Covenant of the Israelites comes to an end:

  • Once again, we read in Noble Verse 37:108:
      
    [037:108]
    And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations.
    37:108  وتركنا عليه في الاخرين

    Are you the Prophet?

    In the OT, "the Prophet" will come from "their brothers" (the Jews' brothers).  The Ishmaelites are the brothers of the Israelites.  Also, a plethora of Prophecies in OT and NT that speak about this Prophet to be a Gentile, and will come from the Southern Lands, and from the Lands of Kedar and Teman (all in Saudi Arabia), and the House of GOD will be established in the deserts of Kedar:

    300 years before Islam, Paran was Mecca:


    From www.answering-christianity.com/predict.htm:

      

    300 years before Islam, manuscripts were found that gave the location of Paran to be in modern-day Mecca.  "Burden" is a monumental honorable thing from GOD Almighty.  Burden was used for Noah and other Prophets' tasks as well.  Notice in the following honorable burden how GOD Almighty will come from a far southern land, and from Teman and Paran in Arabia:
      
      

    Isaiah 21:13
    13 The burden upon Arabia....

    Habakkuk 1:1
    1 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet
    did see.

      

    What burden did he see?

    Habakkuk 3:3
    3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah (Arabian desert of  Selah in Isaiah 42:11 and MOUNT SELA in Medina thoroughly discussed below). His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.
      
      

    Tema in Hebrew means the "south country".  We also know that Tema (Tayma) is in Saudi Arabia today, and Saudi Arabia is indeed south of Palestine and Jordan.  So, GOD came from the south Arabian country, and His holy one from Mecca is the future burden that Prophet Habakkuk saw.  300 years before Islam, Paran was Mecca.

      

    Isaiah 30:6
    6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.

    Isaiah 30:27
    27 Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:

    Isaiah 42:10-13 (listed in details below)   GOD will sing a New Song from Arabia via the gentile Prophet who will come from the Jews' "brothers" (Deuteronomy 18:18).  The Ishmaelites are the brothers of the Israelites.  Also, only Islam fulfilled Deuteronomy's army of 10,000 Believers (Deuteronomy 33:2).  The New Testament also renews this Prophecy and claims it is yet to be fulfilled in the future.  Also, Ishmael's Covenant was left for the "latter generations".

    1-  Tema was one of Ishmael's sons.  It is also worth mentioning that Arabs in the OT and NT were called "perfect and upright" and have "great faith".  Not a single Jew was ever called that.

    2-  Tema in Hebrew means the "south country".  We also know that Tema (Tayma) is in Saudi Arabia today, and Saudi Arabia is indeed south of Palestine and Jordan.  So, GOD came from the south Arabian country, and His holy one from Mecca is the future burden that Prophet Habakkuk saw.  300 years before Islam, Paran was Mecca.

      


    GOD's burden will be upon Arabia prophecy.  The same word, "burden," was also used for monumental assigned tasks to Prophets.  So, Arabia was chosen to carry the burden, and to bear the brunt and pain of spreading GOD Almighty's Truth to the entire world.  See Goddess Asherah, pornography, return of the Messiah from Damascus, Bible and Islam Prophecy for ample verses and proofs.  The Prophecy also says GOD will come from a 
    far southern land [1], and from Teman and Paran [1] (both are in Saudi Arabia).  That's precisely Islam.  300 years before Islam, Paran's geography was determined to be in modern-day Mecca.  Manuscripts were found.


    Know also that the entire "House of Jacob", in Isaiah's prophecy, was commanded to follow this Servant-to-come from the deserts of Arabia [1].  Do not be afraid (Isaiah 41:8-13) of this new GENTILE SERVANT (Isaiah 41:2, 42:1) and the NEW CHANGE (he will sing a NEW SONG of new Divine Revelation Isaiah 42:10) that the desert of Kedar will rejoice for his coming (Isaiah 42:11).  Never was this said for an Israelite Prophet.  THE ENTIRE HOUSE OF JACOB were commanded to not be afraid of him, because he will be a NON-ISRAELITE ProphetNEW SONG here means a new non-Hebrew Arabic Scripture to come from Arabia (Kedar); the Glorious Quran.  Read Isaiah 41 & 42

    Also, cave Hira, which the Glorious Quran was sent down in, was precisely mentioned by the name in Isaiah 29:12.

      
      

    Teman Prophecy in Isaiah:

    The Ishmaelites are the brothers of the Israelites.  Ishmael was the older brother of Isaac.  The Arabian desert of Kedar, which covers Teman [1]:

    Isaiah 42:
    10 Sing to the Lord a NEW SONG (new non-Hebrew, non-Jewish Divine Revelation "from their brothers (the Ishmaelites)" (Deuteronomy 18:18), i.e., the Arabic Quran) And His praise from the ends of the earth, You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, You coastlands and you inhabitants of them!
    11 Let the wilderness (
    desert in many translations) and its cities lift up their voice, The villages that Kedar inhabits.  Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, Let them shout from the top of the mountains.
    12 Let them give glory to the Lord, And declare His praise in the coastlands.
    13 The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a
    man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.

    Indeed, Islam came from Arabia.  The Glorious Quran is the NEW SONG that the Hebrew speaking Jews are not part of or used to.  And Islam prevailed over its Arabian enemies in the desert and ended the polytheism and idol worship.  Read Isaiah 41 & 42 Notice again:

    Isaiah 42:11
    1599 Geneva Bible
    11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the towns that [a] Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rocks sing: let them shout from the top of the mountains.

    Footnotes
    a. Isaiah 42:11 Meaning, the Arabians, under whom he comprehendeth all the people of the East.

    Source:  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+42%3A11&version=GNV

      

    Isaiah 42:11 Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice, The villages that Kedar inhabits.  Let the inhabitants of Sela סלע  sing, Let them shout from the top of the mountains.

    סלע:

    ס = S
    ל = L
    ע = A

    It is the city and region of Saleh in Saudi Arabia.  Hebrew SALA or SELA is SALAH or Saleh in Arabic.  Vowels are added to letters in Hebrew and Arabic to change the sound of letter.  This is similar to the letters E, O and other vowel letters in English.  Also inside the city of Medina, Islam's second holiest city, there is also Mount Sela.  Medina was Yathrib before Islam.  The Jewish Prophecy here could either be referring to the entire region or directly and specially to the city of Medina.  In either case, the geography is clearly deep in Arabia:

    Sela (Arabic: سلع ‎) is a mountain in Medina in modern Saudi Arabia. Mount Sela in the "District of the Seven Mosques" in city of Medina Municipality in Saudi Arabia. Sela means "sliced", because the mountain looks as if it is sliced several times. The Islamic prophet Muhammad in the Battle of the Trench prayed to God for victory on Mount Sela.

    Source: https://www.bing.com/search?q=mount Sela in Medina
      

    Remember in Isaiah 42:13, above, "MAN OF WAR. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies." (Isaiah 42:13)


      

    And again, it is also worth mentioning that Arabs in the OT and NT were called "perfect and upright" and have "great faith".  Not a single Jew was ever called that.
      

      

    Desert of Saleh :

    Isaiah 42:11 Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice, The villages that Kedar inhabits.  Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, Let them shout from the top of the mountains.
      

    Although archaeological remains may not be the first thing that spring to mind when most people think of Saudi Arabia, it has incredible historic sites. Mada'in Saleh, which was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, contains many remarkable ruins and tombs. It is the first location in Saudi Arabia to have achieved this distinction. It was once the second city of perhaps the most important pre-Islamic Arabian civilization, the Nabateans.

    Remember:  Burden is a monumental honorable thing from GOD Almighty.  Burden was used for Noah and other Prophets' tasks as well.  Visit section #2 in the following article about "2-  The honorable burdens throughout the Bible".  Notice how GOD Almighty will come from a far southern land, and from Teman and Paran in particular in Arabia:
      

          Isaiah 21:13  The burden upon Arabia
         
                 
    Isaiah 30:27  GOD's Name will come from a far land
              
         
            Habakkuk 3:3  GOD will come from the southern (Tema) Arabian lands

    Isaiah 42:13 The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man;
    Habakkuk 3:3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.

    So we have the deserts of Teman, Paran, Kedar, Sela (Selah).  We also have Arabia, Duma, Deedan, and others.  Again, remember: Burden is a monumental honorable thing from GOD Almighty.  Burden was used for Noah and other Prophets' tasks as well.  Visit section #2 in the following article about "2- The honorable burdens throughout the Bible".  Notice in the following honorable burden how GOD Almighty will come from a far southern land, and from Teman and Paran in Arabia:

    Hub leading to Islam:
      

    Jesus was the final Jewish Prophet, and the Messiah who shall return from Arabia (Matthew 24:25-27 and Islam say this), and his mission and message were limited to his Jewish generation.  He was a hub leading to Islam and to the new change:
      

    Matthew 15:24 24 Jesus answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”
    Matthew 24:34  "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
    Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

    Jesus was limited to only his Jewish generation.  Beyond that, he was only a hub leading to Islam and to Muhammad, the gentile Prophet.  Please also visit:

    Muhammad in the Bibles.
    Muhammad in the NT.
    Muhammad in the OT.
    Jesus was for his generation only.  Detailed Greek analysis.

    This is further proven in the following:

    = War on GOD:

    Christianity is a war on GOD Almighty and a polytheist trinitarian paganism.  It turned sinful into lawful and lawful into sinful.  (ex: pork became lawful, polygamy became sinful and many other examples of blasphemies and quackery):

    Daniel 7:25
    25 He shall speak words against the Most High,
    and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
    and shall think to change the times and the law;
    and they shall be given into his hand
    for a time, times, and half a time.

    3-  Abraham had no child for almost 100 years. He was completely barren:

    Abraham was very desperate for a son.  Ishmael was the greatest gift from GOD Almighty to Abraham.  This is why Abraham named him GOD finally Answered my Prayer.  GOD Almighty put Abraham to the ultimate test by Commanding him to slaughter this precious son.  Abraham obeyed GOD Almighty by attempting to slaughter his son, Ishmael.  Ishmael too was true to his promise.  He never resisted, nor disobeyed.  He was willing to get slaughtered for the Will of Allah Almighty.  GOD Almighty saved Ishmael at the last minute, and Commanded Abraham to slaughter a ram instead.

      

    4-  The corrupt Jewish books say it was Isaac:

    But the name "ISHMAEL" really exposes their lies and gives it all away!  The name clearly suggests that Abraham was MOST DESPERATE with Ishmael, and hence, Ishmael's test would‘ve been FAR GREATER than Isaac's.  Isaac was the second son, and 13 years younger.  The Jewish Law gives double the inheritance to the OLDEST SON when the father dies (Deuteronomy 21:17). 

    This is not a war between Ishmael and Isaac.  In Islam, we honor all of the people of Israel's Prophets and Messengers of GOD Almighty.  Peace be upon Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac. And peace be upon Hagar and Sara.  Again, please visit:

  • Bible says that Jews' from their essence were liars.  From their "birth" they were liars the Old Testament declares them.  This is another proof that the Bible is full of man-made corruption and fabrications, especially in the Jews' ancient history and stories.  Jeremiah 8:8 is thoroughly covered here.
  • Again, please visit: Ishmael was put on pause until the Israelites' Covenant passes.  See slides 32-38.  Both the Bible and Glorious Quran agree on this.

      

    "El" in names as in Ishmael was common among the Jews.  Is the GOD of Islam different?  Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah in both Islam and Judaism.

      

    5-  Is Elohim Allah? [1, *] [2] [3]

    The "im" in Hebrew is a majestic plural for GOD Almighty.  The root Word is "Eloh".  And the more original Jews such as Yemenites and others say Alohim or Alah-im.  And when you yourself pronounce it, you do naturally pronounce it with a double "l": Allah.  Jews do call Him: Allah-im.  Aramaic-speaking people also call GOD Almighty Allah.  See the following videos for Biblical references and proofs.  Also, pre-Islamic Biblical archeological findings have GOD Almighty as "Allah".  So the Original Holy Name for GOD Almighty is not Eloh.  It is Allah!  Eloh is a Hebrew dialect, which not all Hebrew speakers use anyway.  Allah had always been the Original and Universal GOD Almighty even before birth of Judaism, and the existence Hebrew.  And Hebrew is a developed language from Phoenician.  See the following links:

           http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenician_alphabet
           http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_Hebrew

      

    6-  What about “EL”?
     
    "El" was a shortened name for Allah (ALIF, LAMED, LAMED, HEY) In Hebrew.  Watch above vidoes.  Allah is also spelled out with ALIF, LAMED, LAMED, HEY in Hebrew to be GOD.  Allah Almighty allowed for shortening of His Holy Name and Titles for the Jews.  This is where you get Ishmael, Garbriel, Ezekiel (short for Allah).  This is also where you get Hallelujah, Netanyahu (short for Yahuwah, or Yahweh) Islam also has shortened Name for Allah Almighty.  Alhamdulillah is short for Alhamdu li Allah Visit:
  • What is the Wisdom of Islam?  Allah Almighty allowed for customized Laws and Creeds for different groups of people.
    There is only one Religion with GOD, and that is Islam.  But Islam was allowed to be customized for different groups of people, and in different times, languages, dialects, ages:
      
    Noble Verse(s) 5:48
    Yusuf Ali:

    [005:048]  To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what God hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If God had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to God; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;

    Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]
      

    Allah Almighty also promised in several Divine Prophecies that He will show the Glorious Quran's Miracles to mankind:
      

    1-  The root letters for "message" and all of its derivatives occur 513 times throughout the Glorious Quran.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the Prophets' and Messengers' actual names (Muhammad, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Lot etc....) were also all mentioned 513 times in the Glorious Quran.  The detailed breakdown of all of this is thoroughly listed here.  This Miracle is covered in 100s (hundreds) of Noble Verses.
      

    2-  Allah Almighty said that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah (chapter Noah) is exactly written in 950 Letters.  You can thoroughly see the accurate count in the scanned images.
      

    Coincidence?  See 1,000s of examples [1].  Quran's Stunning Numerical & Scientific Miracles.

      
    Islam also thoroughly rejects as man-made lies the Trinity and Crucifixion [2].  Jesus was also thoroughly called
    slave of GOD [1] in both the OT and NT.
