Daniel 7:13-14 Messiah Jesus God?

According to Trinitarian Jesus-worshippers, Daniel 7:13-14 proves the deity of Jesus and that he should be “worshipped.” Now here is a problem we have, the verse does not say the person should be worshipped. According to Trinitarians because the Hebrew word “פלח” (Pelach) is used in the passage, then that proves the deity of Jesus. They say: “the word פלח (Pelach) is used for God alone and it has never been used for humans (besides Jesus).” As we will investigate you will know the word פלח (Pelach) is used for others beside God, saints, ministers etc.

New International Version (©2011) Daniel 13 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations…

Was Prophethood Exclusive to the Children of Israel (Bani Israel) by Dr. Shabir Ally

Dr. Shabir ally holds a B.A. in Religious Studies from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, with a specialization in Biblical Literature, an M.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Toronto with a specialization in Quranic Exegesis and a PhD studies in Quranic Exegesis at the University of Toronto.
Dr. Shabir is the founder of the Islamic Information and Da’wah Centre in Toronto, Canada.

He’s the author of the book ” Is Jesus God? The Bible Says No ! “

He currently teaches Arabic at the University of Toronto.

Why Should God Allow Jesus (peace be upon him) being crucified?

“Why Should God Allow one of his mighty prophet Being disgracefully crucified?”

Crucifixion means defeat: If Jesus had really died on the cross, it would have meant
the failure of his whole mission: His disciples had forsaken him, Judas had betrayed him,Peter had disowned him and Jesus was dying.

Crucifixion means disgrace: Such a disgrace as it would be to be nailed on the cross like a criminal would have been a death unworthy of a honored prophet. God would beunjust, if Jesus had suffered like a wicked transgressor, and God would not have been onJesus’ side, since he did not rescue him in such a desperate plight.

The Bible does not really support the crucifixion: Deut 21:23 teaches that the one who is hung on a tree is under God’s curse. Consequently, Jesus could not have died on the cross, since he was a honored prophet, and not a cursed criminal. Also that Jesus’ words on the cross “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” prove, that Jesus was crucified against his will.

The crucifixion and the representative salvation is intellectual nonsense: How can the death of a mortal man can bring salvation or anything else for another human being. The fact that Jesus did not deserve his death, but suffered innocently, adds to this intellectual nonsense.

The idea of crucifixion has its origin in heathen religions: Christian dogmas like the trinity, sonship of Jesus or the Christian idea of salvation were not originally part of original teaching of Jesus but have been introduced by Paul, the one who corrupted Christianity after the death of Jesus. Such ideas, could have been originated from the Roman-heathen environment of early Christianity and were taken into it like certain elements from Neo-Platonism and deviated Judaism.

 

وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَٰكِن شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ ۚ وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ اخْتَلَفُوا فِيهِ لَفِي شَكٍّ مِّنْهُ ۚ مَا لَهُم بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعَ الظَّنِّ ۚ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ يَقِينًابَل رَّفَعَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَيْهِ ۚ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَزِيزًا حَكِيمًا

“And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain. Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.”  (Q 4:157-158)

How Do Jews Pray?

Let me tell you a little secret… I have been waiting nearly 6 minutes to make a post like this, after looking over a popular post that I wrote a while back entitled, How Do Muslims Pray? I was going to hold onto it since I published something earlier on Muslims and health-care reform. But I thought this was an interesting topic and very different from the health-care reform issue and perhaps a bit more entertaining. So where do we start?

Well, lets start with the basics. Muslims believe that Ibrahim/Abraham (a.s.) is a prophet of Islam. The Lord of the Worlds says to the believers,

“O ye who believe! bow down, prostrate yourselves, and adore your Lord; and do good; that ye may prosper.” (22:077)

He also commands,

“And strive hard in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him; He has chosen you and…

Islam and Judaism: a common heritage

Judaism consider christianity is idolatry. While Christians generally focus on the “personality” of God as man- i.e. Jesus, the ways in which He is active in the world – and worship God as a “man”, Muslims and Jews realize that God’s activities are not God “Himself”, and focus on and worship God “in Himself” – the One free of any finitude.

Here, Benyamin Abramson an an orthodox Chasidic Jew from Israel, a historian to the court in Jerusalem. He talk about the similarities between Islam and Jewish customs.

Benyamin Abramson enjoy talking about the hadith, tabari, ibn hisham, wakidi, talking about the kings of chimyar as much as I enjoy talking about the Midrash Rabbah, the Midrash Geulah, Rambam, Tosafot, the Shulchan Aruch. He also like to talk about common prayer customs between Islam and Judaism, He believes that they obviously go back to a common root, a common faith.
