Al Saff (Battle Array) (61) -14 M

1>        Whatever is in the heavens and on earth let it declare the Praises and Glory of Allah: for He is the Exalted in Might the Wise.

2        O ye who believe! why say ye that which ye do not?

3        Grievously odious is it in the sight of Allah that ye say that which ye do not.

4        Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array as if they were a solid cemented structure.

5>        And remember Moses said to his people: "O my people! why do ye vex and insult me though ye know that I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you?" Then when they went wrong Allah let their hearts go wrong: for Allah guides not those who are rebellious transgressors.

6>        And remember Jesus the son of Mary said: "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad Tidings of an Apostle to come after me whose name shall be Ahmad." But when he came to them with Clear Signs they said "This is evident sorcery!"

       #5436        The mission of Jesus was to his own people, the Jews. Cf. Matt. x. 5-6. See also Matt. xv. 24: "I am not sent but to the lost sheep of Israel;" also Matt. xv. 26: "It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs." 5437        Cf. Matt. v. 17. 5438        "Ahmad", or "Muhammad", the Praised One, is almost a translation of the Greek word Periclytos. In the present Gospel of John. xiv. 16, xv. 26, and xvi. 7, the word "Comforter" in the English version is for the Greek word "Paracletos", which means "Advocate", "one called to the help of another, a kind friend", rather than "Comforter". Our doctors contend that Paracleots is a corrupt reading for Periclytos, and that in their original saying of Jesus there was a prophecy of our holy Prophet Ahmad by name. Even if we read Paraclete, it would apply to the holy Prophet, who is "a Mercy for all creatures" (xxi. 107) and "most kind and merciful to the Believers" (ix. 128). See also n. 416 to iii. 81. 5439        Our holy Prophet was foretold in many ways; and when he came, he showed forth many Clear Signs, for his whole life from beginning to end was one vast miracle. He fought and won against odds. Without learning from men he taught the highest wisdom. He melted hearts that were hard, and he strengthened hearts that were tender and required support. In all his sayings and doings men of discernment could see the working of Allah's hand; yet the ignorant Unbelievers called it all Sorcery!-called that unreal which became the most solid fact of human history!#

       *** There is no mention of Ahmad or any other prophet to follow Jesus anywhere in the whole of the New Testament -in Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic.

       The interpreter's convoluted and crackpot explanations above cannot change the fact that he is a preposterous liar.

       Like many of the most important verses in the Quran, they have been tampered with, edited and corrupted to suit the agenda of the followers of Muhammad.

       All these alterations occurred over the decades and centuries following his death.

       There are no records of the original Quranic verses to compare  with since these were deliberately destroyed - by Uthman and others - to obliterate all possibility of finding the actual truth.

       The angel Gabriel would not have pronounced this as well as other corrupted verses since they are all incompatible with the original Biblical narratives ***

7        Who doth greater wrong than one who invents falsehood against Allah even as he is being invited to Islam? And Allah guides not those who do wrong.

8        Their intention is to extinguish Allah's Light (by blowing) with their mouths: but Allah will complete (the revelation of) His Light even though the Unbelievers may detest (it).

9        It is He Who has sent His Apostle with Guidance and the Religion of Truth that he may proclaim it over all religion even though the Pagans may detest (it)

       #5442        "Over all religion": in the singular: not over all other religions, in the plural. There is really only one true Religion, the Message of Allah submission to the Will of Allah: this is called Islam. It was the religion preached by Moses and Jesus; it was the religion of Abraham, Noah, and all the prophets, by whatever name it may be called. If people corrupt that pure light, and call their religions by different names, we must bear with them, and we may allow the names for convenience. But Truth must prevail over all. See also ix. 33, n. 1290, and lxviii. 28, n. 4912.#

       *** Islam - the belief in the One and Only God - was preached by Moses and Jesus since both were MONOTHEISTS centuries before Muhammad and his UPSTART CULT BELIEF SYSTEM ***

10>        O ye who believe! shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?

11        That ye believe in Allah and His Apostle and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah with your property and your persons: that will be best for you if ye but knew!

12>        He will forgive you your sins and admit you to Gardens beneath which rivers flow and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity: that is indeed the supreme Achievement.

13>        And another (favor will He bestow) which ye do love help from Allah and a speedy victory: so give the Glad Tidings to the Believers.

14>        O ye who believe! be ye helpers of Allah: as said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?" Said the Disciples "We are Allah's helpers!" Then a portion of the Children of Israel believed and a portion disbelieved: but We gave power to those who believed against their enemies and they became the ones that prevailed.

       *** According to this verse, the Aposles are all MUSLIMS, which of course they had to be since they were all believers in the

                        One and Only God of Israel***
