Abraham was a muslims according to bible!
« on: November 02, 2022, 07:42:13 PM »
Salam alaikum brothers and sisters
I'd like to give you something very interesting i found in the bible
Let's start

We read from
Targum Jonathan on gensis 17
וַהֲוָה אַבְרָם בַּר תִּשְׁעִין וּתְשַׁע שְׁנִין וְאִתְגְלֵי יְיָ לְאַבְרָם וַאֲמַר לֵיהּ אֲנָא אֵל שַׁדַי פְּלַח קֳדָמַי
וֶהֱוֵי שְׁלִים בְּבִשְרָךְ
And Abram was the son of ninety and nine years, and the Lord appeared to Abram, and said to him, I am El Shadai; serve before Me and be shelim in thy flesh

But what does "shelim" or "שלם" means?
According to Hebrew and Chaldee lexicon to the Old Testament Scriptures translated page 830
(3) cherishing peace and friendship (see the root in Pual, Hiphil, Hophal). Gen. 34:21, Ὁ i3AN Di “ they live peaceably with us;” specially M7} DY “Y devoted to God, at peace with him, 1 Ki. 8:61; 11:4; 15:3, 14; and without these words, 2 Kings 20:3; 1Ch. 28:9; 2 (ἢ. 15:17. Compare
Sve iiiphil No.2; (also سلم devoted to God and to Ma-
homet, one who professes the islamic religion.) (4) [Salem, Shalem], pr. n.i.q. Down Jerusa-

So what do you think guys about it!
Salam alaikum.

Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother Ibn Layla,

Jazaka Allah Khayr and welcome to the board, akhi.  Great discovery!  One of Islam's names in the Glorious Quran is SILM:

"O ye who believe! Enter into Islam (في السلم into the Selm (another name for Islam)) whole-heartedly; and follow not the footsteps of the evil one; for he is to you an avowed enemy." (The Noble Quran, 2:208).

So SHILM in Genesis 17 is being a Muslim.  I will add to the website and do further research, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
