My Response for this claim consists of my personal writtings and the footnotes descriptions of the Holy Verses from my Holy Quran, which was translated by Sheik (Minister) Abdallah Yusuf Ali.
Anti-Islamic Claim: 48.From among all nations or from Abraham's seed? Surah 29:27 states that all prophets came from Abraham's seed. But 16:36 claims that Allah raised messengers from among every people.
My Response: Let us look at Noble Verse 29:27 "And We gave (Abraham) Isaac and Jacob, and ordained among his progeny Prophethood and Revelation, and We granted him his reward in this life; and he was in the Hereafter (of the company) of the Righteous."
Let us look at Noble Verse 16:36 "For We assuredly sent amongst every People an apostle, (with the Command), 'Serve Allah, and eschew Evil': of the People were some whom Allah guided, and some on whom error became inevitably (established). So travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who denied (the Truth)."
There is no contradiction in the Noble Verses above.
Where in Noble Verse 29:27 does it state that all prophets came from Abraham's seed ??!! There is a little fraud on your part Mr. Jochen Katz. I hope that you do actually read the Noble Verses that you attack before you post them on your site !.
For Noble Verse 29:27 above, Isaac was Abraham's son and Jacob his grandson, and among his progeny was included Ishmail the eldest son of Abraham. Each of these became a fountainhead of Prophecy and Revelation. Isaac and Jaacob through Moses, and Ishmail through Muhammad. Jacob got the name of "Israel" at Bethel (Genesis 32:28, and 35:10), and his progeny got the title of "The Children of Israel".
For Noble Verse 16:36 above, even though Allah Almighty's signs are everywhere in nature and in men's own conscience, yet in addition Allah has sent human messengers to every people to call their attention to the good and turn them from evil. So they can not pretend that Allah Almighty has abondoned them or that He does not care what they do. His divine grace always invites their will to choose the right. Let us look at Noble Verse 10:47 "To every people (was sent) a messenger: when their messenger comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged."
Also let us look at Noble Verse 35:24 "Verily We (Allah) have sent thee (Muhammad) in truth, as a bearer of glad tiding, and as a warner: and there never was a people, without a warner having lived among them (in the past)."
In Noble Verses 10:47 and 35:24 above, we clearly see that Allah Almighty had sent to all people on earth Messengers of God to spread the good news and the truth to their people. Allah Almighty is very fair and He certainly would not judge a nation or a group of people if they did not recieve His Noble Words.
