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.

The Promised seed of Ishmael (pbuh)

The promised seed made to Ishmael was established when he was born.

Gen 21 only deal that Isaac as the 2nd born also included in the covenant ..yes for prophet Isaac it is the covenant for the jews but through Ishmael the covenant should be for muslims and universally binding

When we look at the Gen 21-12-134 it is clear that Prophet Muhammad is the promised seed of Ishmael.

We should treat the passage 12-13 as a whole.

כִּי בְיִצְחָק יִקָּרֵא לְךָ זָרַע וְגַם אֶת בֶּן הָאָמָה לְגוֹי אֲשִׂימֶנּוּ כִּי זַרְעֲךָ הוּא

kî bĕyiṣḥāq yiqqārēʾ lĕkā zāraʿwĕgam ʾet ben hāʾāmâ lĕgôy ʾăśîmennû kî zarʿăkā hûʾ

Here the Hebrew word “et” אֶת־ can mean a definite direct object or “with”.

So the correct translation should be

“For in Isaac a seed shall be called to thee, and also with the son of the handmaid for a (great) nation I will make him for your seed is he“.

Clearly there are two prophecised seeds here..one for Isaac and the latter for Ishmael.

While the first seed through Isaac (v12) can refer to prophet Jesus (as he said the was promised before Abraham Jh 8:58),

….. the pronoun used in 13 הֽוּא׃ /hûʾ he inevitably can only refer to Prophet Muhammad as he is the seed of Ishmael the son of Hagar as the text indicates.

Hyde Park Speakers Corner: Is Jesus God? Dr. Bilal Philips answers

Is Jesus Christ God or just a prophet?

What does the Bible say about the identity of Jesus Christ?

Why is the question over Jesus’ true identity so important?

What do Muslims believe about Jesus? Is he a prophet or more than a prophet?

Brother Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips was born in Jamaica, but grew up in Canada, where he accepted Islam in 1972.

He completed a diploma in Arabic and a B.A. from the College of Islamic Disciplines (Usool ad-Deen) at the Islamic University of Madeenah in 1979. At the University of Riyadh, College of Education, he completed a M.A. in Islamic Theology in 1985, and in the department of Islamic Studies at the University of Wales, he completed a Ph.D. in Islamic Theology in 1994.

Abu Ameenah taught Islamic Education and Arabic in private schools in Riyadh for over ten years and for three years he lectured M.Ed. students in the Islamic Studies department of Shariff Kabunsuan Islamic University in Cotobato City, Mindanao, Philippines. Since 1994 he has founded and directed the Islamic Information Center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (which is now known as Discover Islam) and the Foreign Literature Department of Dar al Fatah Islamic Press in Sharjah, UAE. Presently, he is a lecturer of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the American University in Dubai and Ajman University in Ajman, UAE.

“There is no time for holidays”, says Bilal Philips, “when you realise how little time there is, and how much work has to be done for Islam.”
