Rebuttal to Craig Winn "Prophet of Doom: JEWS" article:
The following article is a rebuttal to Craig Winn's article that is located at: http://www../quotes4.html#jews.
Important Note to the Reader:
Craig Winn purposely twisted and modified the English translations that he used! He changes words in translations and uses non-Muslim ones. I've noticed this a lot through his translations of the Noble Verses that he used from the Noble Quran.
List of Craig Winn's fabricated lies and deliberate alteration of quotes, WITH CLEAR-CUT PROOFS!
Quran 2:61 Humiliation and wretchedness were stamped on the Jews and they were visited with Allahs wrath.
Quran 4:44 Have you not considered those to whom a portion of the Book has been given? They traffic in error and desire that you should go astray. But Allah has full knowledge of your enemies. Of the Jews there are those who displace words from their (right) places, saying, We hear and we disobey with a twist of their tongues they slander Faith . Allah has cursed them for disbelief.
Quran 4:47 O you People of the Book to whom the Scripture has been given, believe in what We have (now) revealed, confirming and verifying what was possessed by you, before We destroy your faces beyond all recognition, turning you on your backs, and curse you as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers, for the decision of Allah Must be executed.
Quran 4:160 For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful for them certain (foods) in that they hindered many from Allahs Way, that they took usury, though they were forbidden, and that they devoured mens wealth on false pretenses, We have prepared for those among them who reject [Islamic] Faith a painful doom.
Quran 5:59 Say: People of the Book! Do you disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the revelation that has come to us and that which came before? Say: Shall I point out to you something much worse than this by the treatment it received from Allah? Those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom He transformed into apes and swine.
Quran 2:64 But you [Jews] went back on your word and were lost losers. So become apes, despised and hated. We made an example out of you.
Ishaq:240 The Jews are a nation of liars.... The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people.
Quran 33:26 Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.
Ishaq:250 The bestial transformation occurred when Allah turned Jews into apes, despised.
Qur'an 59:14 The Jews are devoid of sense. There is a grievous punishment awaiting them. Satan tells them not to believe so they will end up in Hell.
Ishaq:254/Quran 2:96 We will not remove a Jew from the punishment. They know the shameful thing that awaits them.
Quran 4:55 Sufficient for the Jew is the Flaming Fire!
Quran 88:1 Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces (all disbelievers, Jews and Christians) that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a boiling hot spring.
Tabari VIII:116 After his return from Hudaybiyah, Allahs Messenger marched against Khaybar. He halted with his army in a valley between the people of Khaybar and the Ghatafan tribe to prevent the latter from assisting the Jews.
Ishaq:264 A notable Jew spoke to the Apostle, twisting his tongue. He attacked Islam and reviled it, so Allah sent down, Allah knows best about your enemies. Some of the Jews change words from their contexts and say: We hear and disobey, twisting their tongues and attacking the religion so Allah cursed them.
Tabari VIII:121 Ali struck the Jew with a swift blow that split his helmet, neck protector, and head, landing in his rear teeth. And the Muslims entered the city. Muhammad conquered the [Jewish] neighborhood. Safiyah was brought to him, and another woman with her. Bilal led them past some of the Jews we had slain including the womans dead husband. When she saw them, the woman with Safiyah cried out, slapped her face, and poured dust on her head. When Allahs Prophet saw her, he said, Take this she-devil away from me!
Bukhari:V4B53N380 Umar expelled all the Jews and Christians from Arabia. Allahs Apostle after conquering Khaybar thought of expelling the Jews from the land which, after he conquered it, belonged to Allah, Allahs Apostle and the Muslims. But the Jews requested Allahs Apostle to leave them there on the condition that they would do the labor and get half of the fruits (the land would yield). Allahs Apostle said, We shall keep you on these terms as long as we wish. Thus they stayed till the time of Umars Caliphate when he expelled them.
Tabari VIII:130 The Messenger said during his final illness, Two religions cannot coexist in the Arabian Peninsula. Umar investigated the matter, then sent to the Jews, saying: Allah has given permission for you to be expelled; for I have received word that the Prophet said that two religions cannot coexist in Arabia.
Ishaq:517 Khaybar was stormed by the Apostles squadron, fully armed, powerful, and strong. It brought certain humiliation with Muslim men in its midst. We attacked and they met their doom. Muhammad conquered the Jews in fighting that day as they opened their eyes to our dust.
Ishaq:524 We cannot accept the oaths of Jews. Their infidelity is so great they swear falsely.
Quran 59:14 They [Jews] will not fight against you save in fortified townships. Their hostility and hatred amongst themselves is strong: you would think they were united, but their hearts they are divided. That is because these [Jews] are a people devoid of sense.
Ishaq:245 Do you love Jews and their religion, you liver-hearted ass, and not Muhammad? Their religion will never march with ours . Jews make false professions about Islam. So Allah sent down: Satan wishes to lead them astray. Ishaq:248 Allah increases their sickness. A tormented doom awaits the Jews. Allah said, They are mischief makers. They are fools. The Jews deny the truth and contradict what the Apostle has brought. I will mock them and let them continue to wander blindly.
Tabari VII:158 The Messenger of Allah besieged the Nadir Jews for fifteen days. In the end they made peace with him on the condition that the Prophet would not shed their blood and that their property and possessions would be his.
Quran 5:13 But because of their breach of their covenant We cursed the Jews, and made their hearts grow hard. They change the words from their (right) places [the illiterate prophet pronounced] and forget and abandon a good part of the message that was sent them. Nor will you cease to find deceit in them. And because of their breaking their covenant We have cursed them. They altered words from their context and they neglected a portion of the message they were reminded of.
Quran 5:41 Or it be among the Jews, men who will listen to any lie. They change the context of the words from their (right) times and places.... For them there is disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.
Quran 5:42 They are fond of listening to falsehood, of devouring anything forbidden; they are greedy for illicit gain!
Quran 5:44 It was We who revealed the Torah. By its standard the prophets judged the Jews, and the prophets bowed (in Islam) to Allahs will, surrendering. For the rabbis and priests: to them was entrusted the protection of Allahs Scripture Book; they were witnesses of it. Therefore fear not men, but fear Me, and sell not My revelations for a miserable price.
Quran 5:64 The Jews say: Allahs hands are fettered. Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the blasphemy they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched, giving [Muslims Jewish booty] as He pleases. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Doom. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah does extinguish it. But they strive to do mischief on earth.
Quran 98:1 Those among the People of the Book, who disbelieve and are idolaters, would never have been freed from their false religion if the Clear Proofs had not come to them. An Apostle of Allah came reading out of hallowed pages . They were commanded to serve Allah exclusively, fulfilling their devotional obligations, and paying the zakat. Surely the unbelievers and idolaters from the People of the Book will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.
Quran 5:78 Curses were pronounced on the unbelievers, the Children of Israel who rejected Islam, by the tongues of David and of Jesus because they disobeyed and rebelled.
Quran 5:80 You see many of them allying themselves with the unbelieving infidels. Vile indeed are their souls. Allahs wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide.
Quran 5:81 If only they had believed in Allah, in the Prophet, and in what had been revealed to him.
Quran 5:82 You will find the Jews and disbelievers [defined as Christians in 5:73] the most vehement in hatred for the Muslims.
Ishaq:262 Some Muslims remained friends with the Jews, so Allah sent down a Quran forbidding them to take Jews as friends. From their mouths hatred has already shown itself and what they conceal is worse.
Quran 2:59 We sent a plague upon the Jews from heaven, for their evil-doing.
Bukhari:V4B56N679 Allahs Apostle said, Plague is a means of torture sent on the Israelis.
Bukhari:V2B23N457 The Prophet went out after sunset and heard a dreadful voice. He said, The Jews are being punished in their graves.
Quran 17:7 We shall rouse Our (Muslim) slaves to shame and ravage you (Jews), disfiguring your faces. They will enter the Temple as before and destroy, laying to waste all that they conquer.
Bukhari:V1B4N147 People say, Whenever you sit for answering the call of nature, you should not face the Qiblah of Jerusalem. I told them. Once I went up the roof of our house and I saw Allahs Apostle answering the call of nature while sitting on two bricks facing Jerusalem.
Ishaq:239 About this time Jewish rabbis showed hostility to the Apostle in envy, hatred, and malice, because Allah had chosen His Apostle from the Arabs. The Jews considered the Prophet a liar and strove against Islam.
Ishaq:239 Jewish rabbis used to annoy the Apostle with questions, introducing confusion. Qurans used to come down in reference to their questions.
Ishaq:240 Labid bewitched Allahs Apostle so that he could not come at his wives. These Jewish rabbis opposed the apostle, they asked questions and stirred up trouble against Islam trying to extinguish it.
Ishaq:240 I concealed the matter from the Jews and then went to the Apostle and said, The Jews are a nation of liars and I want you to give me a house and hide me from them. If they learn Ive become a Muslim, theyll utter slanderous lies against me. So the prophet gave me a house, and when the Jews came, I emerged and said, O Jews, fear Allah and accept what He has sent you. For you know that he is the Apostle of Allah. You will find him described in your Torah and even named. They accused me of lying and reviled me. I told Muhammad, The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people.
Ishaq:241 Mukhayriq was a learned rabbi owning much property in date palms. He recognized the Apostle by his description and felt a predilection for his religion. He violated the Sabbath to fight on behalf of Islam and was killed in battle. I am told the Prophet used to say, Mukhayriq is the best of the Jews [a dead one]. The Apostle took his property.
Ishaq:242 Julas the Jew used to say, If Muhammad is right we are worse than donkeys. Allah sent down concerning him: They swear that they did not say it, when they did say the words of unbelief.... Allah will afflict them with a painful punishment in this world and in the next. [Surah 9:75] Ishaq:242 The Apostle ordered Umar to kill him, but he escaped to Mecca.
Ishaq:246 The surah of the Hypocrites came down because some men sent secret messages to the Nadir Jews when the Apostle besieged them.... Allah bears witness that they are liars. Like Satan when he says to men, Disbelieve. [59:11]
Quran 59:14 They are a divided people devoid of sense. There is a grievous punishment awaiting them. Satan tells them not to believe so both of them will end up in Hell.
Quran 59:2 It was He [Allah] who drove the [Jewish] People of the Book from their [Medina] homes and into exile. They refused to believe. You did not think that they would go away. And they imagined that their settlement would protect them against Allah. But Allahs [actually Muhammads] (torment) came at them from where they did not suspect and terrorized them. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson O men who have eyes. This is My warning. Had Allah not decreed the expulsion of the Jews, banishing them into the desert, He would certainly have punished them in this world, and in the next they shall taste the torment of Hell Fire.
Ishaq:251 Moses commanded them to prostrate themselves and his Lord spoke to him and they heard His voice giving them commands and prohibitions so that they understood what they heard. But when Moses went back to the Jews a party of them changed the Commandments they had been given. [2:75]
Ishaq:252 Have you no understanding? Why do you maintain that he is not a prophet since you know that Allah has made a Covenant with you that you should follow him? While he tells you that he is the prophet whom you are expecting, and that you will find him in Our book, you oppose him and do not recognize him. You reject his prophethood on mere opinion.
Ishaq:253 Allah cursed them for their unbelief. When a scripture comes to them from Allah confirming what they already have, they deny it. Allahs curse is on them.
Ishaq:254 In the pagan era the Jews were scripture folk and we were pagans. They used to say, Soon a prophet will be sent whom we shall follow. When Allah sent his Apostle from the Quraysh and we followed him they denied him. Allah revealed, When there comes to him one they recognize, they deny him. They are wretched, so Allah cursed them, and He will give them a shameful punishment. The double anger is His wrath because they have disregarded the Torah and anger because they disbelieved in this Prophet whom Allah has sent to them. [2:89]
Ishaq:254 Long for death [Jews], if you are truthful. Pray that God will kill whichever one of us is the most false. The Jews refused the Prophets dare. Allah said to His Prophet, They will never accept your dare because of their past deeds. But they recognize you from the knowledge they have. Yet they deny. Had they accepted your dare, not a single Jew would have remained alive on the earth. [2:94]
Ishaq:254 We will not remove a Jew from the punishment. The Jew knows the shameful thing that awaits him in the next life because he has wasted the knowledge he has. [2:96]
Ishaq:255 Jewish rabbis came to the Apostle and asked him to answer four questions saying, If you do so we will follow you, testify to your truth, and believe in you. They began, Why does a boy resemble his mother when the semen comes from the father? Muhammad replied, Do you not know that a mans semen is white and thick and a womans is yellow and thin? The likeness goes with that which comes to the top. Agreed, the rabbis proclaimed.... The rabbis said. But Muhammad, your spirit is an enemy to us, an angel who comes only with violence and the shedding of blood, and were it not for that we would follow you.
Ishaq:255 So Allah sent down concerning them: When the Apostle comes to them from Allah confirming that which they have received in scripture, they put it behind their backs as if they did not know it. They follow that which Satan read concerning the kingdom of Solomonsorcery. One of the rabbis said, Dont you wonder at Muhammad? He alleges that Solomon was a prophet, and yet he was nothing but a sorcerer. So Allah sent down, Solomon did not disbelieve but Satan did, practicing sorcery. [2:101]
Ishaq:256 The Apostle wrote a letter to the Jews of Khaybar [before he annihilated them]. In the name of Allah, from Muhammad the Apostle of Allah, friend and brother of Moses who confirms what Moses brought [the Torah]. Allah says to you, O Scripture folk, and you will find it in your scripture Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. Those with him are severe against the unbelievers. You see them bowing, falling prostrate, seeking bounty, and acceptance. The mark of their prostrations is on their foreheads. That is their likeness in the Torah and in the Gospels.
Ishaq:256 The Jews used to ask Muhammad questions which annoyed and confused him. Ishaq:257 Your situation seems obscure to us, Muhammad.
Ishaq:257 O Jews, fear Allah and submit, for you used to hope for the Messiahs help against the Arabs when we were pagans. You told us that he would be sent and then told us about him. A Jew responded, Muhammad has not shown us anything we recognize as prophetic. He is not the one we spoke to you about. So Allah revealed, We confirmed what they had, and We sent one they recognized, but they rejected him so We are cursing them. The Jews replied, No Covenant was ever made with us about Muhammad. Muhammad, you have not brought anything we recognize. And God has not sent down any sign or miracle suggesting that we should believe you. So Allah said, We have sent down to you plain signs and only evildoers disbelieve them.
Ishaq:257 The Jews told Allahs Messenger, Bring us a book. Bring us something down from heaven that we might read it.
Ishaq:258 The Jews used to turn men away from Islam. So Allah said, Many Scripture folk wish to make you unbelievers after you have believed. They are envious. Be indulgent until Allah gives you his orders [to rob them, rape them, sell them into slavery, and murder them.]
Ishaq:262 Some Muslims remained friends with Jews, so Allah sent down a Quran forbidding them to take Jews as friends. From their mouths hatred has already shown itself and what they conceal is worse. You believe in their Book [though you dont have a clue what it says] while they deny your book, so you have more right to hate them than they have to hate you.
Ishaq:263 Abu Bakr went into a Jewish school [there is no mention of him ever going into a Muslim school] and found many pupils gathered around Finhas, a learned rabbi. Bakr told the Jews to fear Allah and submit. He told them that they would find that Muhammad was an Apostle written in the Torah and Gospels. Finhas replied, Why does your god ask us to lend him money as your master pretends. Abu was enraged and hit Finhas hard in the face [for telling the truth]. Were it not for the treaty between us I would cut off your head, you enemy of Allah. So Allah said, They will taste Our punishment of burning.
Ishaq:264 Allah revealed concerning Finhas and the other rabbis: Allah issued orders to those who had received the Book: You are to make it clear to men and not conceal it, yet they cast the Torah behind their backs and sold it for a small price. Wretched was their exchange. They will therefore receive a painful punishment.
Ishaq:264 The Torah confirms what Muhammad brought. Rifaa, a notable Jew, spoke to the Apostle, twisting his tongue: Give us your attention, Muhammad, so that we can make you understand. Then he attacked Islam and reviled it. So Allah sent down, Allah knows about your enemies. Some Jews change words from their contexts and say: We hear and disobey, twisting their tongues and attacking the religion. But Allah cursed them. [2:59 & 4:47]
Ishaq:264 The Jewish rabbis knew that Muhammad had brought them the truth, but they denied that they knew it. They were obstinate. So Allah revealed, People of the Book, believe in what we have sent down in confirmation of what you had been given before or We will efface your features and turn your face into your ass, cursing you.
Ishaq:269 Tell us when the Day of Doom will be, Muhammad, if you are a prophet as you say. So Allah sent down, They will ask you about the hour when it will come to pass. Say, only my Lord knows of it. None but He will reveal it at its proper time. Say, Only Allah knows about it but most men do not know. How can we follow you, Muhammad, when you have abandoned our Qiblah? And you do not allege that Uzayr [who knows?] is the son of God. So Allah revealed, The Jews say that Uzayr is the son of God [no they dont] and the Christians say the Messiah is the son of God. That is what they say with their mouths, copying the speech of those who disbelieved in the earlier times. Allah fight them! How perverse are they?
Ishaq:269 For our part we dont see how your Quran recitals are arranged anything like our Torah is. [So Muhammad who couldnt read said,] You know quite well that the Quran is from Allah. You will find it written in the Torah which you have.
Ishaq:269 If men and jinn [demons] came together to produce its like they could not. Finhas said, Did men or jinn tell you this, Muhammad? You know full well that the Quran is from Allah and that I am the Apostle of Allah. You will find it written in the Torah you have. The rabbi replied, When God sends a prophet, He provides for him, so bring us a book that is divinely inspired that we may read it and determine if you are telling the truth. We can produce our Book. So Allah revealed, concerning their words, Though men and jinn should meet to produce this Quran, they would not produce its like, even working together.
Quran 2:40 O Children of Israel, remember the favors I bestowed on you. So keep My Covenant so that I fulfil your covenant. Fear Me. And believe in what I sent down, confirming and verifying the Scripture which you possess already.
Quran 2:41 Be not the first to deny or sell My Verses for a small price; and fear Me, and Me alone. [Another translation reads:] Part not with My Revelations for a trifling price, getting a small gain by selling My Verses.
Quran 2:43 [Jews] Perform prayer; pay the zakat tax; bow down and prostrate yourself with Ar-Rakiun (the obedient bowers). You read, recite, and study the Scripture. Why dont you understand? Nay, seek [Islamic prostration] prayer: It is indeed hard, heavy, and exacting, except for those who obey in submission.
Quran 2:59 The [Jewish] transgressors changed and perverted the word from that which had been spoken to them to a word distorted; so We sent a plague upon them from heaven, for their evil-doing.
Quran 2:61 Humiliation and wretchedness were stamped upon the Jews and they were visited with wrath from Allah. That was because they disbelieved Allahs Proofs, Signs and Verses and killed the prophets. They disobeyed and rebelled.
Quran 2:64 But you [Jews] went back on your word and were lost losers. You know that you have broken the sanctity of the Sabbath, so We said: Become monkeys despised and hated. We made this punishment an example and a warning for those who fear Allah.
Quran 2:79 But woe to the Jews who fake the Scriptures and say, This is from God, so that they might earn some profit thereby. And woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they earn from it.
Quran 2:80 Yet they (Jews) say: The Fire will not touch us for more than a few days but they are enclosed in error and are inmates of Hell.
Quran 2:85 Do you [Jews] believe a part of the Book and reject a part? There is no reward for them who so act but disgrace in the world, and on the Day of Doom, the severest of punishment their torment will never decrease!
Quran 2:89 The Book was sent to them (the Jews) by Allah verifying and confirming what had been revealed to them already (the Torah and Gospel). They used to pray for victory over the unbelieversand even though they recognized it when it came to them, they renounced it. The curse of Allah be on those who deny!
Quran 2:101 When there came a messenger from Allah confirming what was with them, a party of the people of the (Torah and Gospel) Scripture Book fling away the Book of Allah, tossing it behind their backs, as if they did not know!
Quran 2:109 Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could turn you [Muslim] (people) back to infidelity after you have believed [submitted], through selfish envy, even after the Truth has become manifest to them. Indulge them until Allah issues his orders.
Tabari VII:26 When the Prophet came to Yathrib he saw the Jews fasting on Ashura day. He questioned them, and they said it was the day upon which God drowned Pharaoh and saved Moses from the Egyptians. He said, We have a better right to Moses than you do.
Tabari VII:85 After Muhammad killed many Quraysh polytheists at Badr, the Jews were envious and behaved badly toward him, saying, Muhammad has not met anyone who is good at fighting. Had he met us, he would have had a real battle. They also infringed the treaty in various ways.
Ishaq:232 The Jews shall contribute to the cost of war so long as they are fighting alongside the believers. The Jews have their religion, the Muslims have theirs. None of them shall go out to war unless they have Muhammads permission. The Jews must pay, however, for as long as the war lasts. If any dispute or controversy should arise it must be referred to Allah and Muhammad, His Apostle. If the Jews are called to make peace they must, except in the case of Holy War. Allah approves of this document.
Tabari VII:85 What happened to the Qaynuqa [the wealthiest Jewish tribe in Yathrib] was that Muhammad assembled them in their Marketplace and said, Jews, beware lest Allah brings on you the kind of vengeance which He brought on the Quraysh. Accept Islam [submit] and become Muslims [surrender]. You know that I am a Prophet. You will find me in your Scriptures and in Allahs Covenant with you.
Ishaq:363 The Jews of the Qaynuqa replied, Muhammad, do you think that we are like your people? Do not be deluded by the fact that you met a people with no knowledge and you made good use of your opportunity.
Tabari VII:85 The Qaynuqa were the first Jews to infringe the agreement between them and the Messenger. [We are not told how they infringed.] The campaign of the Prophet against the Banu Qaynuqa was in Shawwal (March 27, 624) in the second year of the Hijrah [migration from Mecca].
Tabari VII:86 Gabriel brought down the following verse to the Messenger: If you apprehend treachery from any people (with whom you have a treaty), retaliate by breaking off (relations) with them. [8:58] When Gabriel had finished delivering this verse, the Prophet said, I fear the Qaynuqa. It was on the basis of this verse that Muhammad advanced on them.
Ishaq:363 Allahs Apostle besieged the Qaynuqa until they surrendered at his discretion unconditionally.
Tabari VII:86 Abd Allah [a Yathrib chief] rose up when Allah had put them in his power, and said, Muhammad, treat my ally well, for the Qaynuqa are a confederate of the Khazraj. The Prophet ignored him, so Abd Allah repeated his request. Ishaq:363 The Prophet turned away from him so Abd Allah put his hand on the collar of the Messengers robe. Muhammad said, Let go of me! He was so angry his face turned black. Then he said, Damn you, let me go! Abd Allah replied, No, by God, I will not let you go until you treat my ally humanely. There are seven hundred men among them who defended me from my foes when I needed their help. And now, you would mow them down in a single morning? By God I do not feel safe around here any more. I am afraid of what the future may have in store. So the Messenger said, You can have them.
Tabari VII:87 The Prophet said, Let them go; may Allah curse them, and may he curse Abd Allah with them. So the Muslims let them go. Then Muhammad [went back on his word and] gave orders to expel the Jews. Allah gave their property as booty to his Messenger. The Qaynuqa did not have any farmland, as they were goldsmiths. The Prophet took many weapons belonging to them and the tools of their trade. The person who took charge of their expulsion from Yathrib along with their children was Ubadah. He accompanied them as far as Dhubab, saying: The farther you go the better.
Bukhari:V5B59N362 He exiled all the Qaynuqa Jews from Medina.
Ishaq:364 Muslims, take not Jews and Christians as friends. Whoever protects them becomes one of them, they become diseased, and will earn a similar fate.
Ishaq:364 I fear this change of circumstance may end up overtaking us. So Allah replied, He will be sorry for his thoughts. True believers perform prostrations, they pay the tax, they bow in homage, and renounce their agreements with the Jews. They are HezbollahAllahs Party.
Quran 59:2 It was Allah who drove the (Jewish) People from their [Yathrib] homes and into exile. They refused to believe. They imagined that their strongholds would protect them against Allah. But Allahs Torment came at them from where they did not suspect. He terrorized them. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson. This is My warning. Had I not decreed the expulsion of the Jews, banishing them to the desert, I would have punished them. They shall taste the torment of Hell Fire. Quran 59:4 That is because they resisted Allah and His Messenger. If any one resists Allah, verily Allah is severe in Punishment.
Quran 59:6 What Allah gave as booty to His Messenger, He has taken away from the Jews. Allah gives His Messenger Lordship over whom He will. Whatever booty Allah has given to Muhammad and taken away from the (Jewish) people of the townships, belongs to Allah and to His Apostle.
Tabari VII:94 The Murder of Kab bin Ashraf, The Evil Genius of the Jews: The Prophet sent messengers to the people of Medina announcing the good news of the victory granted to him by Allah at Badr. They listed the names of the polytheists they had killed. Ishaq:365 Kab bin Ashraf was from the Jewish clan of Nadir. When he heard the news, he said, Can this be true? Did Muhammad actually kill these people? These were fine men. If Muhammad has slain them, then the belly of the earth is a better place for us than its surface! Ishaq:365 When the enemy of Allah became convinced the report was true, he set out for Mecca. He began to arouse people against Muhammad [i.e., he exposed him]. He recited verses in sympathy for the Quraysh men Muhammad had cast into the pit. Kab Ashraf composed the following poetic lines: The blood spilled at Badr calls to its people. They cry and weep. The best men were slain and thrown into a pit. Ishaq:365 Drive off that fool of yours so that you might be safe from talk that makes no sense. Why do you taunt those who mourn over their dead? They lived good lives, and as such we must remember them. But now you have become like jackals.
Tabari VII:94 The Prophet said, Who will rid me of Ashraf? Muhammad bin Maslamah, said, I will rid you of him, Messenger of Allah. I will kill him. Do it then, he said, if you can.
Bukhari:V4B52N270 The Prophet said, Who is ready to kill Kab bin Ashraf who has really hurt Allah and His Apostle? Muhammad bin Maslama said, O Allahs Apostle! Do you want me to kill him? He replied in the affirmative. Ishaq:365 Who will rid me of Ashraf? Maslama said, I will deal with him for you. O Apostle, I will kill him. Muhammad said, Do so if you can.
Ishaq:365/Tabari VII:94 Muhammad bin Maslamah said, O Messenger, we shall have to tell lies. Say what you like, Muhammad replied. You are absolved, free to say whatever you must.
Tabari VII:94/Ishaq:367 Maslamah made a plan to kill Kab, the enemy of Allah. Before they went to him, they sent Abu ahead. When he arrived, they spoke together for a while. They recited verses, for Abu was something of a poet. Then Abu said, Kab, I have come to you about a matter which I want you to keep secret. Go ahead, he replied. The arrival of the Prophet Muhammad has been an affliction for us. Abu said, Most Arabs are now hostile to us. We cannot travel along the roads, and the result is that our families are facing ruin. We are all suffering. Kab replied, I warned you that things would turn out like this. Abu said, I would like you to sell us some food. We will give you some collateral and make a firm contract. Please treat us generously.
Tabari VII:95 Abu said, We will deposit sufficient weapons with you to guarantee the payment of our debt. Abu wanted to fool the Jew so that he would not be suspicious about the weapons when they came bearing them. Abu went back to his companions, informed them of what had happened. He told them to grab their swords and join him. Before leaving, they went to the house of the Messenger. Muhammad walked with them as far as Baqi al-Gharqad. Then he sent them off, saying, Go in Allahs name; O Allah, help them [assassinate the outspoken Jew]! Then the Prophet went back home. It was a moonlit night, and they went forward until they reached Kabs house.
Ishaq:368 Then Abu called out to him. He had recently married, and he leapt up in his bed. His wife took hold of the sheets, and said to the strange voice, You are a fighting man; as only a man of war leaves his house at an hour like this. Bukhari:V5B59N369 His wife asked him, Where are you going? Kab replied, Out with Muhammad bin Maslamah and my brother Abu. His wife said, I hear evil in his voice as if his words are dripping blood. Kab said. They are my brother and my foster brother. A generous man should respond to a call at night even if invited to be killed.
Muslim:B19N4436 Muhammad said to his companions: As he comes down, I will extend my hands towards his head, I will touch his hair and smell it. When you see that I have got hold of his head, strip him. When I hold him fast, you do your job. Bukhari:V5B59N369 Muhammad said. I have never smelt a better perfume than this, so that Kab would relax his guard. Will you allow me to smell your head? Then Abu thrust his hand into the hair near his temple. When Muhammad got a strong hold of him, he said, Strike the enemy of Allah! So they smote him.
Ishaq:368 Their swords rained blows upon him, but to no avail. Muhammad bin Maslamah said, When I saw that they were ineffective, I remembered a long, thin dagger which I had in my scabbard. I took hold of it. By this time the enemy of Allah had shouted so loudly lamps had been lit in the homes around us. I plunged the dagger into his breast and pressed upon it so heavily that it reached his pubic region. Allahs enemy fell to the ground.
Tabari VII:97/Ishaq:368 We carried Kabs head and brought it to Muhammad during the night. We saluted him as he stood praying and told him that we had slain Allahs enemy. When he came out to us we cast Ashrafs head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been assassinated and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allahs Cause. Our attack upon Allahs enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.
Ishaq:368 Kabs body was left prostrate. After his fall, all the Nadir Jews were brought low. Sword in hand we cut him down. By Muhammads order we were sent secretly by night. Brother killing brother. We lured him to his death with guile [cunning or deviousness]. Traveling by night, bold as lions, we went into his home. We made him taste death with our deadly swords. We sought victory for the religion of the Prophet.
Tabari VII:97 The next morning, the Jews were in a state of fear on account of our attack upon the enemy of Allah. After the assassination, the Prophet declared, Kill every Jew.
Bukhari:V1B1N6 Just issue orders to kill every Jew in the country.
Tabari VII:97/Ishaq:369 Thereupon Masud leapt upon Sunayna, one of the Jewish merchants with whom his family had social and commercial relations and killed him. The Muslims brother complained, saying, Why did you kill him? You have much fat in you belly from his charity. Masud answered, By Allah, had Muhammad ordered me to murder you, my brother, I would have cut off your head. Wherein the brother said, Any religion that can bring you to this is indeed wonderful!
Quran 59:14 The Jews will not unite and fight against you except from behind walls. They hate themselves. You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided. That is because these [Jews] are a people devoid of sense. Like those who recently preceded them [the Meccans at Badr], they [the Jews who were just sent into the desert to die] have tasted the evil result of their conduct. And for them a grievous punishment.
Quran 59:16 They [the Jews] are like Satan when he tells man, Not to believe, When (man) denies, Satan says, I have nothing to do with you. I fear Allah, the Lord of men and jinn!
Quran 59:17 Both [Jews and Satan] will go into the Fire of Hell, dwelling therein forever. Such is the reward of the Zalimun (disbelievers and polytheists).
Quran 62:5 The likeness of those who are entrusted with the Taurat (Torah), who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of an ass which carries huge books (but understands them not). Wretched is the likeness of folk who deny the Verses of Allah.
Quran 62:6 Say: You Jews! If you think that you are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then desire death, if you are truthful! But never will they long (for death), because of what their hands have done before them! Allah knows well the polytheists! Say: The Death from which you flee will truly overtake you.
Quran 3:65 You People of the Book! Why dispute you about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Have you no understanding? Ah! You are those who fell to disputing (even) in matters of which you had some knowledge! But why dispute in matters of which you have no knowledge? It is Allah Who knows, and you who know not!
Quran 3:67 Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was a true Muslim, surrendered to Allah (which is Islam), and he joined not gods with Allah.
Quran 3:77 As for those who sell for a small price the covenant and faith they owe to Allah and their own plighted word for a small price, they shall have no portion in the Hereafter. Nor will Allah speak to them or look at them on the Day of Judgment, nor will He cleanse them: They shall have a grievous torment, a painful doom. There is among them a section who distort the Book with their tongues. (As they read) you would think it is from the Book, but it is not from the Book; and they say, That is from God, but it is not from Allah: It is they who tell a lie against Allah, and (well) they know it!
Quran 3:84 Say (Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed to us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob and the tribes [of Israel], and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered, bowing our will (in Islam).
Quran 3:85 If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (Surrender), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who are losers. Quran 3:87 Of such the reward is that on them (rests) the curse of Allah, of His angels, and of all men, all together. In that will they dwell; nor will their penalty of doom be lightened.
Tabari VII:156/Ishaq:437 In the fourth year of the Islamic Era the Prophet expelled the Nadir [a large Jewish community in Yathrib] from their homes.
Tabari VII:158 Call Muhammad bin Maslamah to me. When Muhammad came, he was told to go to the Jews and say, Leave my country. You have intended treachery. He went and said, The Messenger orders you to depart from his country. They replied, We never thought that an Aws would come with such a message. Hearts have changed, Muhammad said. Islam has wiped out our old covenants.
Ishaq:437 The Apostle ordered them to prepare for war and to march against them. Muhammad personally led his men against the Nadir and halted in their quarter. The Jews took refuge against him in their homes, so he ordered their date palms to be cut down and burnt. They shouted, Muhammad, you have forbidden wonton destruction of property and have blamed those who perpetrated it. Why are you doing this? Quran 59:5 The palm trees you cut down or left standing intact was by Allahs dispensation so that He might disgrace the transgressors.
Ishaq:437 So Allah cast terror into the hearts of the Jews. Then the Prophet said, The Jews have declared war.
Tabari VII:159 The Messenger of Allah besieged the Banu Nadir for fifteen days until he had reduced them to a state of utter exhaustion, so that they would give him what he wanted. The terms in which the Prophet made peace with the Jews were: he would not shed their blood, he would expel them from their lands and settlements, providing for every three of them a camel and a water-skin. Ishaq:438 The Jews loaded their camels with their wives, children, and property. There were tambourines, pipes and singing. They went to Khaybar with such splendor as had never been seen from any tribe. Ishaq:438 The Nadir left their property to Muhammad and it became his personal possession, to do with it as he wished.
Ishaq:438 Allah wreaked His vengeance on the Jews and gave His Apostle power over them and control to deal with them as he wished. Allah said, I turned out those who disbelieved of the Scripture People from their homes. And in the next world I will torment them again with a painful punishment in Hell. The palm trees you cut down were by Allahs permission; they were uprooted on My order. It was not destruction but it was vengeance from Allah to humble the evildoers. The spoil which Allah gave the Apostle from the Nadir belongs to him.
Bukhari:V4B52N153 The properties of Nadir which Allah had transferred to His Apostle as Booty were not gained by the Muslims with their horses and camels. The properties therefore, belonged especially to Allahs Apostle who used to give his family their yearly expenditure and spend what remained thereof on arms and horses to be used in Allahs Cause.
Bukhari:V4B52N176 Allahs Apostle said, You Muslims will fight the Jews till some of them hide behind stones. The stones will betray them saying, O Abdullah (slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.
Bukhari:V4B52N177 Allahs Apostle said, The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.
Ishaq:441 A man who had neither shown treachery nor bad faith haply had a change of fortune and took revenge, cutting down their palm trees and killing the Nadir. A sharp sword in the hand of a brave man kills his adversary. The rabbis were disgraced for they denied mighty Lord Allah. Ishaq:442 Sword in hand we brought down the Nadir. By Muhammads order we beguiled them.
Tabari VIII:7 The Quraysh said: Jews, you are the people of the first Scripture, and you have knowledge about the subject on which we and Muhammad have come to differ. Is our religion better or his? Your religion is better, they said. You are closer to the truth than he.
Ishaq:450 They are the ones concerning whom Allah revealed: Have you not seen those to whom a portion of the Scripture has been given? They believe in idols and false deities. They say, These are more rightly guided than those who believe?until the words, Hell is sufficient for their burning. They are jealous and Allah has cursed them. [4:51]
Tabari VIII:15 When the news reached Muhammad, he sent Sad, chief of the Aws to Kab. If it is true, speak to me in words that we can understand but that will be unintelligible to others. So he went out and found them engaged in the worst of what had been reported. They slandered the Messenger and said, There is no treaty between us. Sad reviled them, and they reviled him. Sad was a man with a sharp temper. He told the Jews, Stop reviling him for the disagreement between us is too serious for an exchange of taunts.
Ishaq:461 Just before the noon prayers, Gabriel came to the Apostle wearing a gold turban. He was riding a mule. He said, Have you laid down your weapons and stopped fighting, Muhammad? Yes, he replied. Gabriel said, The angels have not laid down their arms! Ive just returned from pursuing the enemy. Allah commands you to march to the Qurayza. I, too, will attack the Jews and shake them out of their homes.
Bukhari:V5B59N443-8 When the Prophet returned from the Trench, laid down his arms and took a bath, Gabriel came to him covered in dust. Why have you laid down your sword? We angels have not set them down yet. Its time to go out against them. The Prophet said, Where to go? Gabriel said, This way, pointing towards the Qurayza. So the Prophet went out to besiege them.
Bukhari:V5B59N444 The dust rose in the streets of Medina as Gabriels regiment marched through. The angels joined Allahs Apostle in attacking the Qurayza Jews.
Ishaq:461 The Messenger commanded a crier to announce that all should heed and obey. He ordered that none should perform the afternoon prayer until after they reached the Qurayza settlement. The Prophet sent Ali ahead with his war banner against the Jews, and the Muslims hastened to it. Ali advanced toward their homes and heard insulting language from the Jews about Allahs Messenger. Ali ran back and told the Prophet that the Jews were rascals and that there was no need for him to go near those wicked men. Why? Muhammad asked. Have you heard them insult me? Yes, Ali answered. Had they seen me, Allahs Apostle replied, they would not have said anything of the sort.
Tabari VIII:28 Before reaching the Qurayza, Muhammad greeted his Companions. Has anyone passed you? he asked. Yes, Prophet, they replied. Dihyah ibn Khalifah passed us on a white mule with a brocade covered saddle. Allahs Apostle said, That was Gabriel. He was sent to the Qurayza to shake their homes and terrorize them.
Tabari VIII:29 The Prophet said, No one should pray the afternoon prayer until they are in the territory of the Qurayza because warfare against the Jews is incumbent upon Muslims.
Ishaq:461 The Muslims had been totally occupied with warlike preparations. They refused to pray until they had come upon the Jews in accordance with Muhammads order. Allah did not find fault with them in His Book, nor did the Messenger reprimand them for it.
Tabari VIII:28 When the Messenger approached the Jews, he said, You brothers of apes! Allah shamed you and cursed you.
Bukhari:V5B59N449 On the day of the Qurayza siege, Allahs Apostle said to Hassan, Abuse them with your poems, for Gabriel is with you.
Ishaq:461 Muhammad besieged them for twenty-five nights. When the siege became too severe, Allah terrorized them. After the siege exhausted and terrorized them, the Jews felt certain that the Apostle would not leave them until he had exterminated them. So they decided to talk to Kab Asad. He said, Jews, you see what has befallen you. I shall propose three alternatives. Take whichever one you please. He said, Swear allegiance to Muhammad and accept him; for it has become clear to you that he is a prophet sent from Allah. It is he that you used to find mentioned in your scripture book. Then you will be secure in your lives, your property, your children, and your wives. Tabari VIII:30 The Jews said, We will never abandon the Torah or exchange it for the Quran. Asad said, Since you reject this proposal, then kill your children and your wives and go out to Muhammad and his Companions as men who brandish swords, leaving behind no impediments to worry you. If you die, you shall have left nothing behind; if you win you shall find other women and children. The Jews replied, Why would we kill these poor ones? What would be the good of living after them?
Ishaq:462 Then the Jews asked, Send us Abu Lubaba, one of the Aws, for they were confederates, so that we can ask his advice. The Prophet complied and the Jews grabbed hold of him. The women and children were crying, so he felt pity for them. They said, Lubaba, do you think we should submit to Muhammads judgment? Yes, he said. But he pointed with his hand to his throat, indicating that it would be slaughter. Lubaba later said, As soon as my feet moved, I knew that I had betrayed Allahs Apostle. He rushed away and tied himself to a pillar in the mosque. He cried, I will not leave this spot until Allah forgives me for what Ive done. I betrayed His Apostle. Ishaq:462/Tabari VIII:32 I heard Allahs Apostle laughing at daybreak; so I said, Why are you laughing, Prophet? May Allah make you laugh heartily! He replied, Lubaba has been forgiven. Ishaq:463 He vanished into the night. It is not known to this day what happened to him. Some allege that he was bound with a rotten rope and cast away.
Tabari VIII:33 In the morning, the Jews submitted to the judgment of Allahs Messenger. The Aws [Medina Muslims] leapt up and said, Muhammad, they are our allies. You know what you did the other day with the allies of the Khazraj [another tribe of Medina Muslims]! Before besieging the Qurayza, the Messenger had besieged the Qaynuqa, who were the confederates of the Khazraj. They had submitted to his judgment and were banished.
Bukhari:V5B59N448 Sad said, O Allah! You know that there is nothing more beloved to me than to fight in Your Cause against those who disbelieve Your Apostle. If there remains any fight with the infidels, then keep me alive till I fight against them for Your sake.
Ishaq:463 En route to Muhammad, the Aws said, Treat our client well for the Prophet has put you in charge of this matter. After many requests, Sad said, The time has come for Sad, in the Cause of Allah, not to be influenced by anyones reproach. Some of the people who heard him, announced the impending death of the Qurayza before Sad Muadh reached them because of the words he had said.
Ishaq:463/Tabari VIII:34 When Sad reached the Messenger of Allah and the Muslims, the Prophet said, Pass judgment on them. Sad replied, I pass judgment that their men shall be killed, their women and children made captives, and their property divided. Allahs Apostle proclaimed, You have passed judgment on the Jews with the judgment of Allah and the judgment of His Messenger.
Bukhari:V5B59N362 So the Prophet killed the Qurayza men. He distributed their women, children and property among the Muslims.
Tabari VIII:39 After the affair of the Qurayza ended, the wound of Sad broke open. He prayed saying, O Allah, You know that there are no men whom I would rather fight and kill than men who called Your Messenger a liar.
Quran 33:26 Allah took down the People of the Scripture Book. He cast terror into their hearts. Some you slew, and some you made prisoners. And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, giving you a land which you had not traversed before. [Version two:] And He drove the People of the Scripture down from their homes and cast panic into their hearts. Some you killed, and you made some captive. And He caused you to inherit their farms, houses, wealth, and land you have not trodden.
Ishaq:464 The Jews were made to come down, and Allahs Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today), and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men. As they were being taken in small groups to the Prophet, they said to one another, What do you think will be done to us? Someone said, Do you not understand. On each occasion do you not see that the summoner never stops? He does not discharge anyone. And that those who are taken away do not come back. By God, it is death! The affair continued until the Messenger of Allah had finished with them all.
Tabari VIII:40 Allahs Apostle commanded that furrows should be dug in the ground for the Qurayza. Then he sat down. Ali and Zubayr began cutting off their heads in his presence.
Tabari VIII:35/Ishaq:464 Huyayy, the enemy of Allah, was brought out. He was wearing a rose-colored suit of clothes that he had torn all over with fingertip-sized holes so that it would not be taken as booty. His hands were bound to his neck with a rope. When he looked at Muhammad he said, I do not regret opposing you. Whoever forsakes God will be damned. He sat down and was beheaded.
Ishaq:464/Tabari VIII:36 According to Aisha, one Jewish woman was killed. She was by my side, talking with me while Allahs Messenger was killing her men in the marketplace.
Tabari VIII:38 The Messenger of Allah commanded that all of the Jewish men and boys who had reached puberty should be beheaded. Then the Prophet divided the wealth, wives, and children of the Qurayza Jews among the Muslims. Ishaq:465 When their wrists were bound with cords, the Apostle was a sea of generosity to us.
Ishaq:465 Then the Apostle divided the property, wives, and children of the Qurayza among the Muslims. Allahs Messenger took his fifth of the booty. He made known on that day the extra shares for horses and their ridersgiving the horse two shares and the rider one. It was the first booty in which lots were cast.
Tabari VIII:38 According to this example (Sunnah), the procedure of the Messenger of Allah in the divisions of booty became a precedent which was followed in subsequent raids. Tabari VIII:39 Then the Messenger of Allah sent Zayd with some of the Qurayza captives to Najd, and in exchange for them he purchased horses and arms.
Tabari VIII:38 The Prophet selected for himself from among the Jewish women of the Qurayza, Rayhanah. She became his concubine. When he predeceased her, she was still in his possession. When the Messenger of Allah took her as a captive, she showed herself averse to Islam and insisted on Judaism.
Ishaq:466 The Apostle chose one of the Jewish women for himself. Her name was Rayhanah. She remained with him until she died, in his power. The Apostle proposed to marry her and put the veil on her but she said, Leave me under your power, for that will be easier. She showed a repugnance towards Islam when she was captured.
Ishaq:466 Allah sent down [a surah] concerning the Trench and Qurayza raid. The account is found in the Allied Troops. In it He mentions their trial and His kindness to the Muslims.
Ishaq:468 Allah brought down the People of the Scripture Book. I forced the Qurayza from their homes and cast terror into their hearts. Some you slew, and some you took captive. You killed their men and enslaved their women and children. And I caused you to inherit their land, their dwellings, and their property. Allah can do all things.
Ishaq:479 Slain in Allahs religion, Sad inherits Paradise with the martyrs. His was a noble testimony. When he pronounced his verdict on the Qurayza, he did not judge on his own volition. His judgment and Allahs were one. Sad is among those who sold his life for the Garden of Bliss. Ishaq:469 An Ansar [Muslim] recited this poem: The throne of Allah shook for only one man: Sad the brave and bold, a glorious leader, a knight ever ready. Stepping into the battle, he cut heads to pieces.
Ishaq:469 On the day the Qurayza Jews were slain, one Muslim was martyred. A stone was thrown on him and it inflicted a shattering wound. The Apostle said, He will have the reward of two martyrs.
Ishaq:475 Allah commanded that horses should be kept for His enemy in the fight so they might vex them. We obeyed our Prophets orders when he called us to war. When he called for violent efforts we made them. The Prophets command is obeyed for he is truly believed. He will give us victory, glory, and a life of ease. Those [Jews] who call Muhammad a liar disbelieve and go astray. They attacked our religion and would not submit.
Ishaq:481 The Apostle slew them in their own town. With our troops he surrounded their homes. We shouted out cries in the heat of battle. The Jews were given the Scripture and wasted it. Being blind, [the illiterate man said] they strayed from the Torah. You Jews disbelieved the Quran and yet you have tasted the confirmation of what it said. May Allah make our raid on them immortal. May fire burn in their quarter. They will no longer ruin our lands. You [Jews] have no place here, so be off!
Ishaq:480 The Qurayza met their misfortune [now theres an understated word]. In humiliation they found no helper. A calamity worse than that which fell upon the Nadir befell them. On that day Allahs Apostle came to them like a brilliant moon. We left them with blood upon them like a pool. They lay prostrate with the vultures circling round.
Before I get into the status of the Jews in the eyes of the Prophets and GOD Almighty, it is important for the reader to know that as I proved in my previous rebuttals, the Al-Tabari and Ibn-Ishaq and other sources are extremely doubtful and unauthenticated. Most Muslim scholars today firmly and strongly believe in this. Not that the hadiths above are bad or anything, but as most Muslim Scholars agree, we Muslims can't take them as absolute Truth or accurate information. Much of these volumes are either corrupt or taken out of context. Again, this is according to the Muslims scholars. This is why these volumes are considered "unauthenticated".

My below responses will be divided into 3 main sections:
1- The Jews'
status in the Bible.
2- The Noble Quran is clear about the Jews. Some of them are Great people, and most of them are evil ones.
3- After the Jews' betrayal to the Prophet peace be upon him, it became necessary to punish them and cleanse them out of the Holy Lands.
1- The Jews' status in the Bible:
Now according to the Bible itself, most Jews are people of evil, lies and worst of all, betrayal. Let us look at what the Bible also says about them:
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! (From the KJV Bible, Matthew 23:37)"
"Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. (From the KJV Bible, Matthew 21:43)"
"You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? "From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, 'Yes, I knew of them.' You have neither heard nor understood; from of old your ear has not been open. Well do I know how treacherous you are; you were called a rebel from birth. For my own name's sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to cut you off. (From the NIV Bible, Isaiah 48:6-9)"
"So I will disgrace the dignitaries of your temple, and I will consign Jacob to destruction and Israel to scorn. (From the NIV Bible, Isaiah 43:28)"
"But now, all you who light fires and provide yourselves with flaming torches, go, walk in the light of your fires and of the torches you have set ablaze. This is what you shall receive from my hand: You will lie down in torment. (From the NIV Bible, Isaiah 50:11)"
Further more from www.answering-christianity.com/bible_quran_differences.htm:
The Bible gives ample evidence of their blasphemy to GOD Almighty. You can read in full details the following Biblical books:
Exodus 32 - They built their golden calf god using their jewelry.
Exodus 34 - The Jews are hard-headed people who don't listen.
Deuteronomy 31 - Moses is concerned about the Jews' future after his death because they are constantly rebellious against the Holy Words and Law of GOD Almighty.
Here are some sample verses from the chapters above:
1 When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, "Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don't know what has happened to him."
7 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt.
8 They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, 'These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.'
9 "I have seen these people," the LORD said to Moses, "and they are a stiff-necked people.
8 Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped. 9 "O Lord, if I have found favor in your eyes," he said, "then let the Lord go with us. Although this is a stiff-necked people, forgive our wickedness and our sin, and take us as your inheritance."
25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD :
26 "Take this Book of the Law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God. There it will remain as a witness against you.
27 For I know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are. If you have been rebellious against the LORD while I am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die!
28 Assemble before me all the elders of your tribes and all your officials, so that I can speak these words in their hearing and call heaven and earth to testify against them.
29 For I know that after my death you are sure to become utterly corrupt and to turn from the way I have commanded you. In days to come, disaster will fall upon you because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD and provoke him to anger by what your hands have made."
12 Then Moses summoned Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab. But they said, "We will not come!
13 Isn't it enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert? And now you also want to lord it over us?
14 Moreover, you haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey or given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Will you gouge out the eyes of these men? No, we will not come!"
10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites.
11 The LORD said to Moses, "How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs I have performed among them?
12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they."
22 not one of the men who saw my glory and the miraculous signs I performed in Egypt and in the desert but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times-
23 not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their forefathers. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it.
24 But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.
29 If these men die a natural death and experience only what usually happens to men, then the LORD has not sent me.
30 But if the LORD brings about something totally new, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them, with everything that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the grave, then you will know that these men have treated the LORD with contempt."
31 As soon as he finished saying all this, the ground under them split apart
Note: I believe this is where they were transformed into apes and swines according to the Noble Quran. The earth probably never opened up and swallowed them. Or may be it did after they were shown to everyone. Only Allah Almighty Knows about the exact timing.
2- The Noble Quran is clear about the Jews. Some of them are Great people, and most of them are evil ones:
What is the place of the Jews and Christians in Islam?
According to Islam, the righteous people from the Jews and Christians will have their Great Reward from Allah Almighty and will enter Paradise. Let us look at the following Noble Verses:
"And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book [Jews and Christians], those who believe in God, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to God: They will not sell the Signs of God for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and God is swift in account. (The Noble Quran, 3:199)"
"Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous. (The Noble Quran, 3:113-114)"
"Those who believe (in the Quran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (The Noble Quran, 2:62)"
"Nay,-whoever submits His whole self to God and is a doer of good,- He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (The Noble Quran, 2:112)"
"Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (The Noble Quran, 2:277)"
The Righteous and Beloved Jews in the Noble Quran:
"Of the people of Moses (i.e., the Jews) there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth. (The Noble Quran, 7:159)"
The above Noble Verses clearly speak about the righteous Jews and Christians who believe in Allah Almighty and do righteousness and will have their Great Reward and enter Paradise.
However, according to Allah Almighty, from among the people of the Book, most of the ones who will gain Paradise are Christians; few of them are Jews. Let us look at the following Noble Verses:
"Strongest among men in enmity to the believers [Muslims] wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, 'We are Christians': because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant. (The Noble Quran, 5:82)"
"The Jews say: 'God's hand is tied up.' Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from God increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, God doth extinguish it; but they strive to do mischief on earth. And God loveth not those who do mischief. (The Noble Quran, 5:64)"
"But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few - ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for God loveth those who are kind. (The Noble Quran, 5:13)"
We must also know that according to Islam most of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) are perverted transgressors, deceiving, in some cases are hypocrites, and most of them are considered Truth rejecters! Let us look at the following Noble Verses:
"Ye [Muslims] are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. (The Noble Quran 3:110)"
"And they say: 'None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.' Those are their (vain) desires. Say: 'Produce your proof if ye are truthful.' (The Noble Quran, 2:111)"
"A section of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians during Prophet Muhammad's time] say: Believe in the morning what is revealed to the believers [Muslims], but reject it at the end of the day; perchance they may (themselves) turn back (from Islam). (The Noble Quran, 3:72)"
"Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: 'The Guidance of God,-that is the (only) Guidance.' Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against God. (The Noble Quran, 2:120)"
"They say: 'Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (To salvation).' Say thou: 'Nay! (I would rather) the Religion of Abraham the True, and he joined not gods with God.' (The Noble Quran, 2:135)"
"They do blaspheme who say: 'Allah is Christ the son of Mary.' But said Christ: 'O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' Whoever joins other gods with Allah - Allah will forbid him the Garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help.(The Holy Quran, 5:72)"
3- After the Jews' betrayal to the Prophet peace be upon him, it became necessary to punish them and cleanse them out of the Holy Lands:
Let us never forget that the Jews fought against the most honourable person and the master of the Prophets and Messengers; our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, until the very last moment of his life, despite the fact that they knew for certain that he was the seal of the Prophets which the Torah and the Bible had mentioned. They also knew for sure that Allaah would grant him victory over them and all other disbelievers; but despite all of this, they still fought, betrayed and deceived him. Moreover, they actually plotted to assassinate him sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam and never lowered the banner of war against him.
During the worst and most difficult times of times for the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, at the battle of the trench, while there were armies surrounding Madeenah, the Jews plotted to kill the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam and his companions from within Madeenah. The companions, may Allah be pleased with them, were having a terrible experience during this battle, yet the Jews of Banu Quraydhah (who were one of the Jewish tribes of Madeenah), at this most critical of times, broke the pledge of non-aggression and mutual defence which they given to the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam.
The Jews intimidated the Muslims, which added to their sense of fear and danger of being in Madeenah. Their families were at great risk and had it not been for the mercy of Allaah, the Jews of Banu Quraydhah would have started another front in the war against the Muslims from within, just when the Muslims were at their most vulnerable.
Allaah rendered the Jews plans as futile as well as those of the confederate tribes who had surrounded Madeenah. He sent down His angels who cast terror into the hearts of the confederates and they withdrew, leaving the Jews of Banu Quraydhah alone with no support.
When the battle was over, the Muslim army and the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam went back to their homes. He sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam then took off his armour and began to have a wash when the angel Jibreel, peace be upon him, came to him and said: O Messenger of Allaah! You have taken off your armour, but I swear by Allaah that the angels have not yet put down their weapons, go to them (and he pointed in the direction of Banu Quraydhah). Thereupon, the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam instructed an envoy to command the Muslim army to go to attack Banu Quraydhah by proclaiming: None of you should pray Asr until they are within the territory of Banu Quraydhah. After this, the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam set out with his army of believers who numbered close to three-thousand mujaahideen.
Banu Quraydhah were surrounded and blockaded for more than twenty nights until they offered to surrender on the condition that Sad Ibn Muaadh, may Allaah be pleased with him, would act as an arbiter in their case. They asked for this because he, may Allaah be pleased with him, was from the tribe of Aws who were their allies before Islaam and therefore they hoped that he would give a biased judgement in their favour. Also, they refused the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam as a judge because they where afraid of the consequences of his judgement.
So the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam sent for Sad, who was injured during the battle and therefore had to be carried. The judgement of Sad was that all their men should be beheaded, their properties be seized and distributed among the Muslims and that their women and offspring be held captive. Thereupon, the Messenger of Allaah exclaimed: Allaahu Akbar! O Sad! You have judged by the command of Allaah.
Indeed, this is the judgment of Allaah with regard to the Jews who are the people of betrayal, deception, evil and corruption; the people who exhibited these repugnant characteristics even with the most honourable of the creations of Allaah; His Prophets and Messengers.
THE BATTLE OF THE TRENCH
WHEN the Prophet (Pbuh) first arrived in Medina, the Jews whowere living there had welcomed him. The Prophet (Pbuh) had returned their greeting, as he wished to be on good terms with them. An agreement was also reached between the Muslims and the Jews, which gave the Jews the freedom to practice their religion andwhich also set out their rights and their duties. Among these duties was that in the case of war with Quraysh, the Jews would fight on the side of the Muslims.
Despite this agreement, however, some of the Jewish tribes, who resented the Prophet's presence in Medina, soon began to cause trouble amongst the Muslims. They tried to set the Muslim Emigrants from Mecca and the Ansar against each other. The troublemakers were given many warnings but they continued to be a nuisance. In the end, the Muslims had no choice but to drive them from Medina. A new agreement was offered those Jews who remained but the trouble did not end there. One of the Jewish tribes, the Bani Nadir plotted to murder the Prophet (Pbuh) but their plan was discovered and they, too, were exiled from the city. Knowing that they could not defeat the Muslims themselves, some of the leaders of the exiled Jews secretly went to Mecca to enlist the help of Quraysh. Knowing what the Meccans would like to hear, they pretended to believe in the same things. They said that they thought that the old Arab tradition was better than the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) and that they believed that the Quraysh religion of worshipping many idols was better than the Prophet's with only one God. Then the Jews told them that if all the Arab tribes attacked Medina, the Jews inside the city would help to defeat the Prophet (Pbuh) and Islam once and for all.
The leaders of Quraysh were pleased to hear all this and seizing on what seemed to them a very good opportunity, agreed to the plan and began to gather together a formidable army. In the meantime in Medina, only one Jewish tribe, the Bani Quraydhah, refused to betray the Muslims.
Eventually the Muslims learned of the preparations being made for war in Mecca and of the plotting of the Jews within Medina itself. The betrayal of the Muslims by the Jews did not surprise the Prophet (Pbuh), who said of them: 'The hearts of the Jews have become closed to the truth. They have forgotten what Muses taught them long ago that there is only one God.'
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The likeness of those who are entrusted with the
Law of Moses, yet apply it not, is as the likeness of the ass carrying books.
Evil is the likeness of the people who deny the revelations of Allah. And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.
The Muslims wondered how they could defend Medina. They heard that Abu Sufyan was coming to attack them with an enormous army which included many other Arab tribes, as well as Quraysh. What were theyto do with only a single week to prepare? The Prophet (Pbuh) and his men knew that it would be impossible for them to fight off all these tribes! The only thing they could do was to stay inside the city and try to defend it as best they could.
Now among the people of Medina was a Persian named Salman, who had to live in the city some time before the Prophet's arrival there. As a convert to Christianity he had traveled to Medina after Christian sages had told him that a Prophet would be born in Arabia. On arriving in Medina he was, however, sold into slavery by the merchants with whom he had traveled. Later he became a Muslim, gained his freedom and became a member of the Prophet's household.
When the people gathered to discuss a plan of action against the approaching enemy, Salman was present and it was he who suggested that they should dig a trench around the city. The Prophet (Pbuh) thought this a good idea, so the Muslims set to work, although it was in the middle of winter. They worked day and night, digging the trench as quickly as possible. The Prophet (Pbuh) himself carried rocks and when the men were tired he gave them the will to carry on. Someone later recalled how beautiful he looked, dressed in a red cloak with dust upon his breast and his dark hair nearly reaching his shoulders.
There was little food at this time and the men were often hungry as they worked. On one occasion, however, a little girl gave some dates to the Prophet (Pbuh), which he spread out on a cloth. The men were then called to eat and the dates kept increasing in number until everyone had been fed. Even after everyone had eaten their fill, the dates continued to increase so that there were more than the cloth could hold.
Similarly, there is the story of the lamb, that has come down to us from one who was there: 'We worked with the Apostle at the trench. I had a half-grown lamb and I thought it would be a good thing to cook it for Allah's Messenger. I told my wife to grind barley and make some bread for us. I killed the lamb and we roasted it for the Prophet (Pbuh). When night fell and he was about to leave the trench, I told him we had prepared bread and meat and invited him to our home. I wanted him to come on his own, but when I said this he sent someone to call all the men to come along. Everyone arrived and the food was served. He blessed it and invoked the Name of Allah over it. Then he ate and so did all of the others. As soon as one lot were satisfied, another group came until all the diggers had eaten enough, but still there was food to spare.
On March 24, 627 A.D., Abu Sufyan arrived with more than ten thousand men. The Muslims numbered only three thousand. Quraysh and their allies surrounded Medina but between the two armies was the long, wide trench. The Prophet (pbuh) and his men stayed behind this trench for nearly a month defending the city against their more powerful enemy. Many times warriors tried to cross the trench and enter the city, but each time they were pushed back by the Muslims. The Muslims were afraid that if any did manage to cross over, the Jews inside Medina would join forces with them and the Muslims would be beaten. The Jewish tribe of Bani Quraydhah, who had stood by the agreement with the Muslims, were pressed by a Jewish emissary from the enemy without, to break their promise. Eventually they agreed to do so and when the news of this reached the Prophet (pbuh) and his companions they were greatly troubled. Sa'd ibn Mu'adh, the leader of the tribe of Aws, was sent by the Prophet (pbuh) with two other men to find out if this were true. When they arrived in the part of Medina where the Jews lived, they found were even worse than they had previously thought. Sa'd ibn Mu'adh, whose tribe was closely allied with the Bani Quraydhah, tried to persuade their leader not to break the treaty with the Muslims, but he refused to listen. This meant that the Muslims could not relax their guard for one moment, for they were now threatened not only by the enemy beyond the trench, but by the Bani Qurayzah, within the walls of the city.
Things became more difficult for the Muslims day by day. It was extremely cold and food began to run out. To make matters worse, the Bani Qurayzah began openly and actively to join forces with the other Jews and cut off all supplies to the Muslims, including food. The enemies of Islam then planned how to capture Medina.
The situation looked desperate and the Prophet (pbuh) prayed to Allah to help the Muslims defeat their enemies. That very night a sandstorm blew up which buried the tents of Quraysh. The storm continued for three days and three nights making it impossible for the enemy to light a fire to cook a meal or warm themselves by.
On one of these dark nights the Prophet (pbuh) asked one of his men, Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman, to go on a dangerous mission. The Prophet (pbuh) told him to make his way across the trench to the enemy camp where he should find out what they were doing.
With much difficulty Hudhayfah crossed the trench and made his way to a circle of Quraysh warriors talking in the darkness. He sat near them, but as there was no fire, no one noticed him. He then heard Abu Sufyan's voice: 'Let us go hom!' he said. 'We have had enough. The horses and camels are dying, the tents keep blowing away, most of the equipment has been lost, and we can not cook our food. There is no reason to stay!' Shortly after hearing this Hudhayfah made his way quickly and quietly back across the trench and the next morning the Muslims rejoiced to find that what he had overheard had come true-Quraysh and their allies had gone away! The siege of Medina had ended in a great victory for Islam.
But this was not to be the end of the difficulties, for the Archangel Gabriel came to the Prophet (pbuh) and told him that he should punish the Bani Qurayzah for betraying him and the Muslims. On hearing this, the Prophet (pbuh) ordered the Muslims to march against the Bani Qurayzah as they hid in their fortress. The Muslims besieged them for twenty-five days until they finally gave in. On surrendering, they asked the Prophet (pbuh) to let someone judge their case, and he agreed. He also allowed them to choose who would give the ruling.
The man chosen to judge the Bani Qurayzah was Sa'd ibn Mu'adh, leader of the Aws, a tribe which had always protected Bani Qurayzah in the past. Sa'd ibn Mu'adh who had himself been wounded in the battle, decided that the Jews should be tried by their own Holy Law, according to which anyone who broke a treaty would be put to death. As a result all the men of the Bani Qurayzah were executed and the women and children made captive.
If the Jews had succeeded in their pact, Islam would have been destroyed. Instead from that day on, Medina became a city where only Muslims lived. Very soon after peace had been restored to Medina, Sa'd ibn Mu'adh died of his wounds. It was said that the Archangel Gabriel came in the middle of that night and said to the Prophet (pbuh) 'O Muhammad, who is this dead man? When he arrived, the doors of heaven opened and the Throne of Allah shook.' The Prophet (pbuh) got up as soon as he heard this, but found that Sa'd was already dead. Although he had been a heavy man, the men who carried his body to the grave found it quite light. They were told that the angels were helping them. When he was buried, the Prophet (pbuh) said three times 'Subhan Allah!' (Glory be to Allah!), and 'Allahu Akbar!' (Allah is Most Great!). When asked why he did this, he replied, 'The grave was tight for this good man, until Allah eased it for him.' This is one of the rewards that Allah gives to martyrs and good Muslims.
Prophet of Doom provides a comprehensive, contextual, and chronological review of the Islamic scriptures starting with the religions rendition of creation and ending with the terror it inspired. The book brings Islams five earliest and most trusted sources together, putting their words and deeds into the context of time and place to expose what the dogmas founder had to say about himself, his ambition, religion, and god. There is no better way to understand Muhammad, Allah, or Islamor to evaluate their legacy.
When reviewing the primary papers of any dogma we must be mindful that context comes in three forms. There is the context of historical chronologythat of circumstance, place, people, and time. There is the context of adjacency the proximity of related words and thoughts within the writings themselves. And context can be topical; in this case similar themes can be brought together and organized by subject. All forms of context provide clarity.
Unfortunately, the Quran fails its faithful on all three counts. The book lacks any semblance of chronology. It is deficient when it comes to providing the required context of place, people, and time. Adjacent verses are usually unrelated and often contradictory. In the Meccan surahs there is a preoccupation with railing against Muhammads mockers and with describing Allahs torments, but the rejections and condemnations are strewn haphazardly through the text. This is also true of the Medina surahs and their fixation on submit and obey, perform and pay, fight or burn. Yes these are themes, and they are repetitive, but they are not presented in cohesive groupings.
The Qurans failures in this regard dictate Prophet of Dooms length, order, and format. The narrative and chronological Hadith compiled by Ishaq and Tabari were required to provide the Quran with the context of circumstance, time, and place that it otherwise lacked. Bukharis and Muslims topical Hadith were used to amplify important Islamic themes. Therefore, Muhammads message has never been as clear as it is in these pages. Unfortunately for humankind, unmasked, his message is repulsive, even terrorizing. But that is precisely what makes this study important.
The Muhammads Own Words appendix isnt the best way to learn about Muhammad or to understand his Quran. But its topical structure may be the most effective means to evaluate his religion. This format facilitates the study of important issues from various perspectives. Their relative significance can be evaluated based upon the volume of material relegated to them. So for your edification and convenience, this appendix collates nearly 3,000 quotes from the Quran, Sira, Tarikh, and Hadith under subject headings like Fighting, War, Jihad, Murder, Thievery, and Intolerance. In contrast to the book, Muhammads Own Words ends with Islamic creation and begins by focusing on the tools of tyranny and terror. They represent the dogmas least understood and most lethal pronouncements. I trust you'll find this endeavor as sobering as it is enlightening.
Every passage in this appendix is recorded in one of Islams prime sources: the Sira (biography), Tarikh (history), Hadith (report), or Quran (recital). They are all documented. Each quote fell from Muhammads lips, no matter how it was inspired. Every recital, whether surah or hadith was passed along to us by the same group of men and by the same meanshearsay. As you will discover, the message does not differ from source to source because the author was always the same.
Ishaqs Sirat Rasul Allah, provides the sole account of Muhammads life and the formation of Islam written within 200 years of the prophets death. It is a Hadith collection, comprised of oral reports from Muhammad and his companions. There is no earlier or more accurate source. While the character, message, and deeds portrayed within its pages are the antithesis of Christs and his disciples, the Siras chronological presentation is as indispensable to Muslims as are the Gospels to Christians. The Quran cant be understood or followed without it.
The Tarikh is the oldest, most trusted, and comprehensive history of Islams formation and Muhammads example, called Sunnah. It was compiled by Tabari. His History of al-Tabari is formatted like the Bible. It begins with Islamic creation and ends with the acts of Muhammads companions. Tabari also composed Islams most revered Tafir, or commentary, on the Quran. He was the dogmas first scholar. His history serves to explain Allahs Recital and Muhammads Sunnah by way of his compilations Hadith.
The most revered topical collections of early Islamic Traditions were compiled by Bukhari and Muslim. They, like this appendix, assort Hadith under important Islamic themes, such as Jihad, Islamic Raids, Knowledge, Creation, Fear, Taxes, Money, Witnesses, Punishment, and Predestination.
To confirm the validity and nature of the Islamic scriptures quoted herein, read what Muslim scholars wrote in the preface of the Hadith and Quran: Bukhari is a Collection of sayings and deeds of Prophet Muhammad, also known as the Sunnah. The reports of the Prophets sayings and deeds are called Hadith. Bukhari lived a couple of centuries after the Prophets death and collected his Hadith. Each report was checked for compatibility with the Quran, and the veracity of the chain of reporters had to be established. The Quran is one leg of two which form the basis of Islam. The second is the Sunnah of the Prophet. What makes the Quran different from the Sunnah is its form. The Quran is quite literally the Word of Allah, whereas the Sunnah [which is comprised of Hadith] was inspired by Allah but the wording and actions are the Prophets.
When quoting from the Quran and Hadith, I have elected to use a blended translation. No language transfers perfectlyone word to another. Five of my twelve translations of the Quran were combined to create the most accurate conveyance of the message possible. For clarity and readability, I have trimmed unruly word patterns and meaningless repetitions, being careful not to alter the meaning or message of any passage. Insertions within parenthesis (like this) were added by the Arabic translators to fill in missing words or to clarify the text. Insertions within brackets [like this] represent my observations.
There are many reasons Islamic clerics are sensitive about having the Quran translated into a contemporary language. The most important are that they dont want anyone to know what it actually says or how poorly its written, but well get to that in a moment. Muslims claim that Arabic was Allahs original tongue and that translations are simply paraphrases. But that would make Allah younger than man because Arabic is one of mans most recent dialects. Its written form didnt emerge until the 7th century. And most every important religious word, concept, and name used in the Quran was derived from Syriac, the language of Syrian Christians in the 6th century.
Muslims invest a quarter of their school day learning to recite the Quran not reading it or understanding it. They simply learn to mouth its sounds in the arcane, inadequate, and odd dialect of Religious Arabic. That way they can be fooled into believing that its Gods Book, and that its written intelligently. Ignorant, they can be indoctrinated and thus manipulated by clerics and kings. Even turned into human bombs when it serves Islams interests.
If Muslims were to shed their yoke of ignorance, they would discover that the real reason those who indoctrinate them, control them, suppress them, fleece them, and abuse them want them deceived is that the actual message contained in Allahs Book is horrendous. It is more intolerant, racist, punitive, and violent than Hitlers Mein Kampf. There are one hundred vicious verses for every nice one. The book inspires infinitely more terror than peace.
They would also discover that the Quran is poorly written. There are countless meaningless words, foreign words, and missing words which is why translations differ so significantlyeveryone is guessing as to what Muhammad thought Allah was trying to say. This is why Gerd Puin, the worlds leading specialist in Arabic calligraphy and Quranic paleography, studying the oldest manuscripts, speaks with disdain about the willingness of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to accept Islamic dogma. He says: The Quran claims for itself that it is mubeen, or clear, but if you just look at it, you will see that every fifth sentence or so simply doesnt make sense. Many Muslims will tell you otherwise, but the fact is that a fifth of the Quran is just incomprehensible. This is what has caused the traditional anxiety regarding translation. If the Quran is not comprehensible, if it cant even be understood in Arabic, then its not translatable into any language. That is why Muslims are afraid.
By reading the Quran in a language they actually understand, Muslims would find that there is no semblance of order in the central book of Islam either. The Quran is a jumbled mess without context, chronology, or rational transitions. It is only by rearranging the Quran in the order it was revealed and infusing it with the context of the chronological Hadith narratives, that the book begins to make sense. But by so doing, it becomes obvious that the Quran was simply a reflection of Muhammads demented character and of his misplaced ambition. The more you know, the more you will come to despise the fraud Muhammad perpetrated on his fellow Arabs and they on human kind. To know the Quran is to reject Islam.
The documented references in Muhammads Own Words were derived from English translations of ancient Islamic manuscripts. The Sirat Rasul Allah by Ibn Ishaq, circa 750 A.D., was edited and abridged by Ibn Hisham in 830 and translated by Alfred Guillaume under the title, The Life of Muhammad in 1955 by Oxford Press. The History of al-Tabari was written by Muhammad bin al-Tabari between 870 and 920 A.D. His work was translated and published in 1987-97 by S.U.N.Y. Press. I quote from volumes I, II, VI, VII, VIII, and IX. Al-Bukharis Hadith, titled: Sahih Al-BukhariThe True Traditions was collected by Imam Bukhari in 850 A.D. I have used the collectors original nomenclature. The following Quran translations were blended and amplified: Ahmed Ali, Pikthal, Noble by Muhsin Khan, Yusuf Ali, and Shakir.
This appendix is not designed to replace the book. It is an aid for those who have read the book. Every quotation is presented chronologically in Prophet of Doom within the context of Muhammads life. They are reviewed in juxtaposition to their adjacent passages. Finding the page upon which a Hadith from Ishaq or Tabari is covered is thus relatively simple since their authors observed a strict chronology. The higher the page number or volume, the later youll find the reference in Prophet of Doom. But the Quran isnt as logical. So if you want to review its surahs within the context of chronology, place, circumstance, and adjacency, youll have to use the Index and turn to the chapter in which the specific surah is presented.
Some of these quotes have been abridged so that non-topical material doesn't clutter the subject. Most of my explanatory comments have been removed and thus I strongly encourage you to read Prophet of Doom prior to using the appendix.
First of all, the issue of the Noble Quran's chronology had been thoroughly addressed at:
Your nonsense above had been soundly debunked with clear facts and proofs. The Noble Quran had proven itself to be a Divine Holy Book that is empty from the slightest amount of errors. Perhaps you need to examine your own bible to see just how corrupt it is:
4- Irrefutable Proofs that the Bible had been altered and corrupted by man:
Let us look at Jeremiah's claim about the Bible being altered to fit their purpose and cover up their shame:
How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie. (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
As we clearly see, the Jews had altered the Law of the LORD (i.e., the Revelations sent to Moses) and turned it into a "lie". Let us further examine the history of the Bible and read the quotes of many of the Bible's theologians:
The original manuscripts had been lost!
"Christians readily admit, however, that there have been 'scribal errors' in the copies of the Old and New Testament. It is beyond the capability of anyone to avoid any and every slip of the pen in copying page after page from any book, sacred or secular. Yet we may be sure that the original manuscript (better known as autograph) of each book of the Bible, being directly inspired by God, was free from all error. Those originals, however, because of the early date of their inception no longer exist."
"Because we are dealing with accounts which were written thousands of years ago, we would not expect to have the originals in our possession today, as they would have disintegrated long ago. We are therefore dependent on the copies taken from copies of those originals, which were in turn continually copied out over a period of centuries. Those who did the copying were prone to making two types of scribal errors. One concerned the spelling of proper names, and the other had to do with numbers."
"Most Christians will affirm that the Bible is our rule of faith and practice. It is a little self contradictory to stand in the pulpit and say the word of God is inspired, when in his heart the pastor knows he is not referring to any book here on this earth that people can hold in their hands and believe. He really should say what he believes - that the word of God WAS inspired at one time but we no longer have it, so the best we can do is hope we have a close approximation of what God probably meant to tell us."
"It also seems a bit inconsistent to say he believes the originals were inspired, when he has never seen them, they never were together in one single book and they no longer exist anyway. How does he know they were inspired? He accepts this by faith. Yet he seems to lack the faith to actually believe that God could do exactly what He said He would do with His words. God said He would preserve them and that heaven and earth would pass away but His words would not pass away."
Irrefutable contradictions, and proofs that the original authors of today's Bible are UNKNOWN!
Muslims and Christians both agree that the Noble Quran does not agree with today's Bible in everything. Just because the Bible might disagree on something in the Noble Quran, it doesn't at all negate the claim of the Noble Quran or make it false. There is a certain flow of logic that the Noble Quran presents which we the Muslims believe that it is the truth.
The Bible's contents today were not written by their original authors. For example, we read from the book of Matthew so many verses such as this one:
"...And as Jesus passed forth thence, HE (Jesus) saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and HE (Jesus) saith unto HIM (Matthew), follow ME (Jesus) and HE (Matthew) arose, and followed HIM (Jesus). (Matthew 9:9)"
Did "Matthew" write this about himself? Why then didn't Matthew write for example: "he (Jesus) saw ME, and my name is Matthew. I was sitting at the receipt of custom " etc.
Similarly, we read in the books of Moses things such as "And the LORD said to Moses...", or "Moses went to that place....", etc... We also read in the Old Testament about Moses' burial. Now if Moses alone supposedly wrote his books, then how is it possible for him to write about his own burial when he is already dead??!!
Such evidence can be found in many places throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament. The so called "Original letters/Gospels" that were written in Greek and Hebrew, were written by third party people!
Consider the following few examples that consist of historical contradictions in the Bible:
II Samuel 10:18 talks about David slew the men of 700
chariots of the Syrians and 40,000 horsemen and Shobach the commander.
I Chronicles 1:18 says that David slew the men of 7000 chariots and 40,000 footmen
I Chronicles 9:25 says that Solomon had 4000 stalls for
horses and chariots.
I Kings 4:26 says that he had 40,000 stalls for horses
Ezra 2:5 talks about an exile Arah having 775 sons.
Nehemiah 7:10 talks about the same exile Arah having 652 sons.
II Samuel 24:13 So God came to David, and told him, and said unto
him, shall SEVEN YEARS OF FAMINE come unto thee in thy land? or will thou flee three
months before thine enemies, while they pursue. thee?

Also, your original scriptures are all doubtful according to the Bible's own theologians and historians. It's quite hilarious that even the Bible itself admits that it has been tampered with and corrupted by man's garbage:
"`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
The Revised Standard Version makes it even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'?
But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
(From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
And regarding who wrote the books and gospels of the Bible, as I quoted above, here is a sample of what the NIV Bible's theologians and historians wrote:
"Serious doubts exists as to whether these verses belong to the Gospel of Mark. They are absent from important early manuscripts and display certain peculiarities of vocabulary, style and theological content that are unlike the rest of Mark. His Gospel probably ended at 16:8, or its original ending has been lost. (From the NIV Bible Foot Notes, page 1528)"
"Although the author does not name himself, evidence outside the Scriptures and inferences from the book itself lead to the conclusion that the author was Luke. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 1643)"
"The writer of this letter does not identify himself, but he was obviously well known to the original recipients. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 1856)"
"The letter is difficult to date with precision....(From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 1905)"
"It seems safe to conclude that the book, at least in its early form, dates from the beginning of the monarchy. Some think that Samuel may have had a hand in shaping or compiling the materials of the book, but in fact we are unsure who the final author or editor was. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 286)"
"Although, according to tradition, Samuel wrote the book, authorship is actually uncertain. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 322)"
"The date of the composition is also unknown, but it was undoubtedly during the monarchy. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 322)"
"The author is unknown. Jewish tradition points to Samuel, but it is unlikely that he is the author because the mention of David (4:17,22) implies a later date. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 360)"
"Who the author was cannot be known with certainty since the book itself gives no indication of his identity. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 368)"
"There is little conclusive evidence as to the identity of the author of 1,2 Kings. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 459)"
"Whoever the author was, it is clear that he was familiar with the book of Deuteronomy. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 459)"
"According to ancient Jewish tradition, Ezra wrote Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah (see Introduction to Ezra: Literary Form and Authorship), but this cannot be established with certainty. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 569)"
"Although we do not know who wrote the book of Esther, from internal evidence it is possible to make some inferences about the author and the date of composition. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 707)"
"The unknown author probably had access to oral and/or written sources....(From the NIV Bible commentary, page 722)"
"Regarding authorship, opinions are even more divided....(From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 773)"

It is quite obvious that Christians today believe in third party authors' words as the words of GOD. This is a very serious corruption in the Bible that must be taken into deep consideration by the Bible's followers. Please visit "Is the Bible the true word of GOD?" to see a full and complete paper about the logical corruptions in the Bible, along with many Christian famous priests and ministers opinions that agree with the Bible's corruption. I have their personal quotes in that site.

You can not disprove Islam by presenting stories from the Bible that are not narrated the same from the Noble Quran. We Muslims believe that there are many disagreements in today's Bible, and that the Noble Quran should be the Bible that the Jews and the Christians should follow.
Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran in Noble Verse 11:110 "We (Allah) certainly gave the Book To Moses, but differences Arose therein: had it not been That a Word had gone forth Before from thy Lord, the matter Would have been decided Between them: but they Are in suspicious doubt Concerning it."
"Previous revelations have been corrupted and deprived of their spiritual value by their followers' vain controversies and disputes. It was possible to settle such disputes under the flag, as it were, or the old Revelations, but Allah's Plan was to revive and rejuvenate His Message through Islam, amongst a newer and younger people, unhampered by the burden of age-old prejudices.
There is always in human affairs the conflict between the old and the new, the worn out system of our ancestors, and the fresh living spring of Allah's inspiration fitting in with new times and new surroundings. The advocates of the former look upon this latter not only with intellectual doubt but with moral suspicion, as did the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) upon Islam, with its fresh outlook and vigorous realistic way of looking at things."

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.
Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross. I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
