Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:
"Behold! We gave the site, To Abraham, of the (Sacred) House (i.e., the Kaaba), (Saying): 'Associate not anything (In worship) with Me; And sanctify My House For those who compass it round, Or stand up, Or bow, or prostrate themselves (Therein in prayer). And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel, lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways; (The Noble Quran, 22:26-27)"
This Prophecy indeed gets fulfilled every single year during the yearly pilgrimage to Mecca. For ample more Prophecies in Islam, please visit:
"Ṭawāf (طواف) is one of the Islamic rituals of pilgrimage. During the Hajj and Umrah, Muslims are to circumambulate the Kaaba (most sacred site in Islam) seven times, in a counterclockwise direction. The circling is believed to demonstrate the unity of the believers in the worship of the One God, as they move in harmony together around the Kaaba, while supplicating to God." (Source)

Jesus' Original Name:
Prophet Jesus' original name was Eesa, as this is also his Islamic name. Even in Latin, it is Iesu, and in Greek it is Iesus. There is also a great deal of evidence that Jesus spoke and preached in Arabic. Not only that, but Greek wasn't even that popular in Palestine. Islam's claims are very strongly supported. See proofs below.
Did early Christians preach Prophet Muhammad in Rome?
Did the early believers preach Prophet Muhammad in Corinth, Antioch, Rome and all other places? Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was the Jews' Messiah and final Prophet. In both the Glorious Quran and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Ahmed was prophesied to come. Ahmed in the Quran is Prophet Muhammad's prophetic name. Also, see below the Dead Sea Scroll image. The New Testament too predicts the coming of three:
So did the early believers preach the coming of Prophet Ahmed or Muhammad? The answer is quite possible, but Muhammad would've been phase 2 for them and not phase 1. Jesus was the early believers' immediate Prophet, not Muhammad. And all of the details that they had were about Jesus, not Muhammad. It is also important to know that the following seven Roman Emperors have thoroughly burned all of the early believers' writings:
Read all the details with references here.
What we have today from "gospels" and "New Testament" were written 80 years to 300 years after Jesus' departure from this earth. So, the current writings that we have are not original writings. Also, to appease the Roman Empire's 3-headed pagan religion and practices, the pagan 3-headed trinity was invented     . Many lies had been fabricated after the original writings were all lost. The Jews and Christians of Arabia, however, did have writings that predicted the coming of Prophet Muhammad. These were some of the original texts that survived.
From Why Jews settled in Arabia section:
Jesus also preached in Arabic:
See the clear proofs in the following:
Prophet "AHMAD" is found in the
Dead Sea Scrolls:
2- Does Tawaaf (circumambulation) exist in the Old Scriptures?
Let us look at the following verses from the Bible:
14 So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.
15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times.
16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!
It is unknown why the Jews circled or circumambulated Jerusalem seven times. The number 7 is unknown. It's just there in the Scriptures. If anything, this proves that there is a lot more from rituals and Commands in the Bible that are missing today. This is just one example. The Bible has examples of great things that are almost entirely not talked about in it. For example, the Bible very briefly talks about Enoch, and how GOD Almighty loved him so much that He took Enoch to Heaven in his body so that he wouldn't have to taste death:
21 When Enoch was sixty-five, he had a son named Methuselah,
22 and during the next three hundred years he had more children. Enoch truly loved God,
23-24 and God took him away at the age of three hundred sixty-five.
3 Because of our faith, we know that the world was made at God’s command. We also know that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen.
4 Because Abel had faith, he offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. God was pleased with him and his gift, and even though Abel is now dead, his faith still speaks for him.
5 Enoch had faith and did not die. He pleased God, and God took him up to heaven. That’s why his body was never found.
6 But without faith no one can please God. We must believe that God is real and that he rewards everyone who searches for him.
The following articles shed more light on the topic of the Bible and its contents:
3- The Islamic Rituals of Worship are all supported in the Bible:
The Islamic Fasting, Prostrating to GOD Almighty in Worship, Doing Pilgrimage are all pillars of the Original Faith, and each one of them is supported in the Bible's Scriptures, and also outside of the Bible's Scriptures.
Again, also visit: The Bible also called the path to Mecca "THE PATH OF HOLINESS".
It was the pagans who plagiarized Islam's practices, not the other way around. The Bible also declares it.
(a)- The mystery of Number Seven in the Bible:
The following verses from the Bible make it clear that the number seven has a great importance in the Old Scriptures. But the reasons are not known. It's a mystery from GOD Almighty:
He himself went on ahead and bowed down to the ground seven times as he approached his brother.
when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.
He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk.
“In my dream I saw seven heads of grain, full and good, growing on a single stalk.
but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land.
Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance.
The seven years of abundance in Egypt came to an end,
When they reached the threshing floor of Atad, near the Jordan, they lamented loudly and bitterly; and there Joseph observed a seven-day period of mourning for his father.
For seven days eat bread made without yeast and on the seventh day hold a festival to the Lord.
Six days you are to gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will not be any.”
Nevertheless, some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather it, but they found none.
Bear in mind that the Lord has given you the Sabbath; that is why on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Everyone is to stay where they are on the seventh day; no one is to go out.”
So the people rested on the seventh day.
but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.
[ Hebrew Servants ] “If you buy a Hebrew servant, he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything.
and the glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud.
Do not leave the entrance to the tent of meeting for seven days, until the days of your ordination are completed, for your ordination will last seven days.
You must stay at the entrance to the tent of meeting day and night for seven days and do what the Lord requires, so you will not die; for that is what I have been commanded.”
If the shiny spot on the skin is white but does not appear to be more than skin deep and the hair in it has not turned white, the priest is to isolate the affected person for seven days.
“‘When a man is cleansed from his discharge, he is to count off seven days for his ceremonial cleansing; he must wash his clothes and bathe himself with fresh water, and he will be clean.
Live in temporary shelters for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters.
“‘If after all this you will not listen to me, I will punish you for your sins seven times over.
“‘If you remain hostile toward me and refuse to listen to me, I will multiply your afflictions seven times over, as your sins deserve.
I myself will be hostile toward you and will afflict you for your sins seven times over.
then in my anger I will be hostile toward you, and I myself will punish you for your sins seven times over.
By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.
[ Greetings and Doxology ] John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne,
The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
As we clearly see, the number seven is simply a mystery from GOD Almighty. We simply don't know why Allah Almighty Chose the number 7.
4- Islam is GOD Almighty's One and Original Faith to mankind, even according to the Bible!
I first of all want to make it clear that in Islam, we do not rely on the Bible. In fact, the Bible doesn't play any role in any of our Islamic Scriptures. But, the Bible does remain important, nonetheless, because:
1- It is mainly used by the Jews and Christians.
2- Islam is written ALL OVER the Book!
3- Islam is the Bible's One and Original Faith of GOD Almighty.
original believers were called Muslims: 
1- The believers' title was always Muslims. Salamays, Mushlams, Mushlemanies, etc... This is also where we get Shalom from. It is SALAM. The Jews' deficient tongue pronouces the S as SH and the soft A as O. This is similar to those who pronounce the W as V in India, and the TH as Z in Europe and elsewhere.
2- Moses' in-laws from Jethro and others were Salamays and Muslimays (video). Believers also during Adam, Noah and Abraham's times were also called Muslims. You can think of them as Arabia's Muwahiddeen (monotheists) before Prophet Muhammad became a Prophet.
3- Allah Almighty called Islam SELM or SILM  in the Glorious Quran. Because indeed, the religion before Allah Almighty is Islam, as He said, and before Prophet Muhammad it was called also Selm or silm.
4- Jesus also in the Bible called the believer's title Mushlem. The English translators falsely translate it as "perfect".
Peace be upon all of the Prophets of Allah Almighty. Please visit:
Circumambulation around the Kaaba, seven times, is certainly a Divine Command from GOD Almighty, and we do find support for it even in the Old Scriptures. This certainly should not be a surprise, since Islam is indeed the One and Original Divine Truth and Religion of GOD Almighty to all of mankind, for all times and all places.
Isaiah 53, Psalm 91, 116 disprove Crucifixion:
Bible's OT and NT declare
Jesus was never
The Romans had to fake his crucifixion due to Passover issues:
This Prophecy is a lie!
Jesus laid on the floor, got healed, and got up and
Trinity is a Joke!
The cursed satan QUOTED Psalm 91 to Jesus challenging Jesus to jump. Jesus simply told him that yes, while the promise of GOD Almighty to protect me from all harm and death is there, but the scripture also says:
"Do not tempt GOD."
The Bible is very clear about the crucifixion being a man-made lie:
Psalm 118 & Jesus the "stone":
Furthermore, we read in Psalm 118:
Yes, they beat the day lights out of Jesus (he never felt a thing), but he never died. He was never crucified. He was never given over to death. GOD Almighty saved him. I quoted Psalm 118:22 above for you to show you that the Psalm chapters and verses that I referenced are all talking about Jesus, and not anyone else.
Never felt a thing:
Again, Jesus never felt a thing. Clear proofs from the Bible and the Glorious Quran are given at:
If it is possible?? Why are you backing down now??? I thought you were the brave King Kong that satan made out of you:
(Jesus: King of Kings or King Kong?)
So let me get this straight:
1- Jesus calls Peter a satan for telling Jesus that GOD Almighty would not allow Jesus to suffer.
2- Jesus himself begs GOD to save him from the crucifixion and all suffering?
Is Jesus greater than Adam? NT says no.
And Jesus is supposed to be our Creator? Infidels bray too much, and their whole religion of conjecture, "Christianity", is all empty nonsense and lies.
The doomed-to-Hell infidels have nothing but garbage NT scriptures and lies.

Corruption in the Old Testament.
The New Testament confirms the Apocalypse (Revelation in Greek) of Peter which claims that Jesus never died on the cross!
Crucifixion of Jesus is a lie according to several of the Disciples' early writings.
Also see detailed refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20 that supposedly suggest that GOD Almighty was going to get pierced on the cross.

The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.
Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.
Was Jesus crucified on a tree (according to Peter), cross (according to others), or never got crucified (according to Islam)?

Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross. Allah Almighty saved him.
The blessed Jesus in Islam.
Do Psalm 16:8-11 refer to Jesus' resurrection as the book of Acts suggest?
Jesus was never crucified according to the Gospel of Barnabas.
Isaiah 42-54 seem to predict Islam and the removal of GOD Almighty's Covenant from the people of Israel.
Deconstructing Isaiah 53 & the crucifixion/resurrection of Jesus - Exposing Paul's inventions.
None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.
Jesus is Yahweh the Son? See how Christians got this very wrong in the NT,
using Jesus' words himself!
Also, is Islam the anti-Christ system according to 1 John 2:22?
Who was the sacrificed son?
Here is the short answer:
Can anyone prove from bible that hazrat ismail (a.s.) was in Arab and Ibrahim (a.s.) was about to slaughter him?
Both the Bible and the Glorious Quran agree that:
1- Ishmael's covenant was put on hold (pause) until the Jewish covenant comes to pass, and the latter generations come:
2- Ishmael's name means the GOD finally heard the Prayer. Ishmael's name is a great proof that he was the sacrificed son. He was born after long decades of frustration and long waits. He was born after a long time of decades of desperation. Isaac would not have been that big of a deal relatively speaking, because Ishmael was already born, and the long horrid desperation was long gone. And Ishmael at the time was his only son, and for a long time too. Ishmael was 13 years older than Isaac. Peace be upon them all.
The challenge wasn't just for Abraham to give up his son for GOD Almighty. Any mere person can do this, even to pagan deities:
[006:137] Even so, in the eyes of most of the pagans, their "partners" made alluring the slaughter of their children, in order to lead them to their own destruction, and cause confusion in their religion. If God had willed, they would not have done so: But leave alone them and their inventions.
While it was a test for Abraham to give up his son for GOD Almighty, but I believe it was also more of testing Abraham to give up what he longed for, and was desperate for, for many decades. And it was also to honor Ishmael, the Prophet of Allah Almighty. Peace be upon Abraham and his sons.
It matters not:
Let me make it absolutely clear that Islam does not stand and fall on:
(a)- Whether Ishmael was
the sacrificed-to-be son or not.
None of this matters in Islam. We are only presenting what the Glorious Quran confirms here. If Isaac was the sacrificed son, then it wouldn't matter. We still say Peace be upon all of Allah Almighty's Prophets and Messengers. And Isaac was certainly one of them, and we love Isaac and revere him as much as Ishmael and all of Allah Almighty's Prophets. Peace be upon them all.
And again, ethnicity has nearly no value in Islam:
[049:013] O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).
This Noble Verse is not just to Muslims, but to all humans. For more details, please visit:
3- The Jews' accounts and the Bible's credibility are a joke! The Jews fabricated many lies. Ironically, their accounts even admit this.
I have thoroughly proven the
Quran Miracle: The Jews' and Christians' scribes changed and still change the Words. Proven with images, text and videos from their corrupt bible and books! See how they removed words and altered words.
As to Ishmael being an Arab, again, it matters not. But if you care to know, Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac's father, was from Iraq. Most Iraqis are Arabs. Assyrians and others are a minority. And even Assyrians and Kurds and others speak Arabic, and their bloods are mixed with Arabs. Arabic had always been the dominant language in the Middle East and North and Central Africa for 20,000 years, if not even more. And it's the language of the Holy Quran, Allah Almighty's Perfect and Miraculous Book with 1000s of Numerical and Scientific Miracles , and also Prophecies . See literally the 1000s of STUNNING Miracles are listed here. Also visit:
But again, it matters not to Islam what ethnicity Abraham was.
The following is the detailed answer....
1- Who was the sacrificed son?
Ishmael's Covenant was made for the latter generations according to both Islam and the Bible. Let us look at Ishmael in great details:
2- The Bible’s Support for Ishmael:
Even in the altered Bible, there is strong evidence that support that Ishmael was the son to be sacrificed. Ishmael's name means "GOD Heard", which implies:
•Ishmael was 13 years older than Isaac, and •Noble Verse 37:102 supports that Ishmael was a teenage boy:
For ample more passages, visit:
3- Abraham had no child for almost 100 years. He was completely barren:
Abraham was very desperate for a son. Ishmael was the greatest gift from GOD Almighty to Abraham. This is why Abraham named him GOD finally Answered my Prayer. GOD Almighty put Abraham to the ultimate test by Commanding him to slaughter this precious son. Abraham obeyed GOD Almighty by attempting to slaughter his son, Ishmael. Ishmael too was true to his promise. He never resisted, nor disobeyed. He was willing to get slaughtered for the Will of Allah Almighty. GOD Almighty saved Ishmael at the last minute, and Commanded Abraham to slaughter a ram instead.
4- The corrupt Jewish books say it was Isaac:
But the name "ISHMAEL" really exposes their lies and gives it all away! The name clearly suggests that Abraham was MOST DESPERATE with Ishmael, and hence, Ishmael's test would‘ve been FAR GREATER than Isaac's. Isaac was the second son, and 13 years younger. The Jewish Law gives double the inheritance to the OLDEST SON when the father dies (Deuteronomy 21:17).
This is not a war between Ishmael and Isaac. In Islam, we honor all of the people of Israel's Prophets and Messengers of GOD Almighty. Peace be upon Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac. And peace be upon Hagar and Sara. Again, please visit:
Again, please visit: Ishmael was put on pause until the Israelites' Covenant passes. See slides 32-38. Both the Bible and Glorious Quran agree on this.
"El" in names as in Ishmael was common among the Jews. Is the GOD of Islam different? Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah in both Islam and Judaism.
The "im" in Hebrew is a majestic plural for GOD Almighty. The root Word is "Eloh". And the more original Jews such as Yemenites and others say Alohim or Alah-im. And when you yourself pronounce it, you do naturally pronounce it with a double "l": Allah. Jews do call Him: Allah-im. Aramaic-speaking people also call GOD Almighty Allah. See the following videos for Biblical references and proofs. Also, pre-Islamic Biblical archeological findings have GOD Almighty as "Allah". So the Original Holy Name for GOD Almighty is not Eloh. It is Allah! Eloh is a Hebrew dialect, which not all Hebrew speakers use anyway. Allah had always been the Original and Universal GOD Almighty even before birth of Judaism, and the existence Hebrew. And Hebrew is a developed language from Phoenician. See the following links:
6- What about “EL”?
•"El" was a shortened name for Allah (ALIF, LAMED, LAMED, HEY) In Hebrew. Watch above vidoes. •Allah is also spelled out with ALIF, LAMED, LAMED, HEY in Hebrew to be GOD. •Allah Almighty allowed for shortening of His Holy Name and Titles for the Jews. This is where you get Ishmael, Garbriel, Ezekiel (short for Allah). This is also where you get Hallelujah, Netanyahu (short for Yahuwah, or Yahweh) •Islam also has shortened Name for Allah Almighty. –Alhamdulillah is short for Alhamdu li Allah. Visit:
