Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

PLAGIARISM BY Mohammad in the Quran

FACT…..

Mohammad had pre-Islamic sources to write his Quran….

The story of the she-camel which leapt out of a rock and became a prophet was known in Arabia long before Muhammad (Suwar 7:73-77; 54:27-29; 91:13-14).- The story of an entire village of people who were turned into apes because they broke the sabbath by fishing was a popular legend in Muhammad’s day (Suwar 2:65; 7:163-166).- The story of Moses and the gushing twelve springs is found in Surah 2:6 0ff and comes from pre-Islamic Arabian legends.- In what is called the “Rip Van Winkle” story, seven men and their animals slept in a cave for 309 years and then woke up perfectly fine (Surah 18:9-26)! This was also a popular story in Arabia at and before Mohammed’s time. This legend was also found in Greek and Christian folks fables from that time and before.- The fable of the pieces of four dead, cut-up birds getting up and flying was well known in Muhammad’s time (Surah 2:260).- The story about the birth of Mary in Surah 3:35-37 appears to be loosely based off of an apocryphal 2nd century work, The Protevangelion of James the Lesser.

Jewish sources that were used when developing the quranic revelation22:

– The Second Targum of the Book of Esther supplied the non-biblical details of the Queen of Sheba‘s visit to King Solomon(Surah 27:17-44).- The Testament of Abrahamprovided the teachings of the Qur’an found in Surah 42:17 and Surah 101:6-9, which relate that on the judgment day, a scale of balance will be used to weigh good and bad deeds, and to make the determination of whether people will be sent to heaven or hell. This Jewish work is also apparently quoted in Surah 87:19.- The story of murderous Cain and the raven (Surah 5:30-31) is found in several Jewish writings, such as the Pirqe of Rabbi Eleazer and the Targum of Jerusalem, both of which pre-date the Qur’an.- The tale of Abraham being delivered from Nimrod’s fire (Suwar 21:51-71; 37:97-98) originated in the Midrash Rabbah on Genesis.

– The Talmud provided the Qur’an with the story of Moses’ resurrection (Surah 2:55-57)

– The story of the golden calf which was made by Israel in the wilderness, in which the image actually leaps out of the fire and moos (Surah 20:80-98), comes from the Pirqe of Rabbi Eleazer.

– Lastly, the seven heavens and hells described at various points in the Qur’an can also be found in the Zohar and the Hagigah, and the hells are further described in the Midrash on the Psalms.

  1. Just a question and something to think about. If…Muslims and Jews believe to be Abrahamic religions, then that means it’s the same God. If the same God then inspired the Torrah and the Quran, wouldn’t the same stories appear in both since it is believed to be the same author? How does that make it plagerism?

    • But that is the error exactly. Islam is NOT an Abrahamic religion. There are only two, Judaism and Christianity. The One True God found in the Holy Bible is NOT the allah of islam.

      • If by your definition of things in your response, “Allah is not the name of God”, Neither is God nor Yahway. Neither is Christianity or Judaism an Abrahamic religion. (Especially as no one person knows the real name of God, according to Christian, Judaic and Islamic belief.) Allah translates to god (deity). Not specific to any one god in particular until the destruction of the polytheistic gods by the Mohammad (pbuh) in the Kabah, which then Allah was then used to describe The One True God. It’s the same as god v. God. I would think that you would have thought about that before writing the article. It’s like dios v. Dios. We have the same in all languages. It is differentiated by the capitalization of the word as well as the connotation. There are 99 names for God in Islam. All of them are descriptive of him, not one a true name, but a description. http://muslimbutterfly.wordpress.com/2011/07/17/the-99-names-of-allah/

        According to my definition of Abrahamic, means descending from Abraham. Judaism and Christianity are religions that were descended through Isiah, and Islam is descended from Ishmael. They were both sons of Abraham. They were both promised great tribes of twelve princes (this is the bible). I seem to remember seeing that the word god was derived from Germanic polytheist. Here is something for your writing.

        The earliest written form of the Germanic word god comes from the 6th century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. Most linguists agree that the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ǵhu-tó-m was based on the root * ǵhau(ə)-, which meant either “to call” or “to invoke”.[4] The Germanic words for god were originally neuter—applying to both genders—but during the process of the Christianization of the Germanic peoples from their indigenous Germanic paganism, the word became a masculine syntactic form.[5]

        In the English language, the capitalized form of God continues to represent a distinction between monotheistic “God” and “gods” in polytheism.[6][7] The English word God and its counterparts in other languages are normally used for any and all conceptions and, in spite of significant differences between religions, the term “God” remains an English translation common to all.. The same holds for Hebrew El, but in Judaism, God is also given a proper name, the tetragrammaton (written YHWH), in origin the name of a Edomite or Midianite deity, Yahweh. In many translations of the Bible, when the word “LORD” is in all capitals, it signifies that the word represents the tetragrammaton.[8] Allāh (Arabic: الله‎ allāh) is the Arabic term with no plural or gender used by Muslims and Arabic speaking Christians and Jews meaning “The God” (with a capital G), while “ʾilāh” (Arabic: إله‎ ellāh) is the term used for a deity or a god in general.[9][10][11] God may also be given a proper name in monotheistic currents of Hinduism which emphasize the personal nature of God, with early references to his name as Krishna-Vasudeva in Bhagavata or later Vishnu and Hari.[12]

        The name of Allah is much closer to the El in Hebrew. I hope this helps.🙂

        • As the correct lineage of God’s chosen people as prophesied to the patriarch Abraham is through his son Isaac, the son that God intended to be His people, only Judaism and Christianity are truly Abrahamic religions.

          Called “the father of the faithful” (compare Romans:4:11), Abraham obeyed God’s instruction to leave his native Ur and move to Haran.

          Notice his example of unquestioning obedience: “Now the LORD had said to Abraham ‘Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing …’ So Abram departed as the LORD had spoken to him …” Hebrews:11:8 adds: “And he went out, not knowing where he was going.”

          God was working with Abraham to establish him and his descendants in the land of Canaan (later called the Promised Land and often referred to as the Holy Land, this is modern Israel).

          At the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, this area was ideal for God’s chosen people, who were to be an example to the rest of the world (Deuteronomy:4:5-8).
          On arriving in the new land, God promised Abraham that He would give the land to his descendants, (Genesis:12:7) His chosen people, Jews and Christians.

          “And the LORD said to Abram,… ‘Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever'” (Genesis:13:14-15).

          God added: “And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered” (verse 16). Significantly, God later changed Abram’s name to Abraham (Genesis:17:5). His earlier name meant “high (exalted) father.” God renamed him “father of a multitude,” saying, “I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you” (verse 6).

          At the time these prophecies must have seemed ironic to Abraham, for his wife Sarah was barren. Her infertility was to be very significant in the development of the modern Middle East. God promised Abraham in Genesis:15:4 that he would have an heir: “one who will come from your own body.”

          Impatient, Sarah told Abraham to take her Egyptian handmaid Hagar and to produce a child by her. This took place “after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan” (Genesis:16:1-3). Thus, Ishmael and his descendants are a product of Abraham’s disobedience.

          Abraham’s first son is born

          “So he went in to Hagar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress became despised in her eyes” (Genesis:16:4). The relationship between Sarah and Hagar quickly deteriorated and Hagar fled. But a divine message was given to Hagar, telling her to return. It also reassured her that her son would have many descendants—but descendants with traits that would be evident throughout their history: “I will so increase your descendants that they will be too numerous to count … You are now with child and you will have a son. You shall name him Ishmael [‘God hears’], for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers” (verses 10-12, New International Version).

          Summary: God’s people are the descendants of the promise, of Isaac. The Abrahamic faiths are ONLY Judaism and Christianity. The opposition in all things come through the disobedience of Abraham, his son Ishmael. “his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers“. This is Islam and it is NOT of the promise and thus NOT an Abrahamic faith.
