> Psalm 83: 4-6 talks about the enemies of among others Ishmaelites (Isma'il a.s), and Hagrites (Hajar being the mother of Prophet Isma'il). >> Psalm 84: 4-6 "4~Blessed are those who dwell in your House; They will still be praising You. 5~Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on the pilgrimage. 6~As they pass through the valley of Baca. They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools." There are several interesting points in the above verses. The name #Baca could be Hebrew whereas the word 'Makkah' is Arabic. Added to this the fact that there is a designated House of Allah built by Abraham (alayhis salaam), in Makkah where yearly pilgrimage was performed from the time of Abraham and Ishmael (alayhis salaam), even to this day. The valley of Baca could indeed be the same as the valley of Makkah. The above verses seem to place Hagar (Hajar), Ishmael and their children in the valley of Makkah where Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) was born. >> Isaiah, 21:12-17 mentions: "12 ~ ... In the forest in Arabia you will lodge ... 15 ~ For they fled from the swords , from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the distress of war." (Probable connection with the enemies mentioned in Psalm 83: 4-6 quoted above; also settlement in Arabia is confirmed; the verse 16 which follows, also confirms these verses are about Ishmaelites (Isma'il), Kedar being the 2nd son of Prophet Ishmael). "16 ~ For thus the Lord ... all the glory of Kedar will fall. 17 ~ And the remainder ... people of Kedar will be diminished ... " >> Isaiah 42:1-13 - These are very moving verses about "God's elect servant" who will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. A point worth noting is that Gentiles are the non-Jews and it was confirmed by Jesus (alayhis salaam), that he was sent to the Jews. Moreover Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), is consistently named by Allah as Mustafa which means 'elected' and 'Abd' which means 'servant'. Prophet Muhammad always referred to himself consistently as the 'Servant of Allah.' The above verses cannot be about Jesus (alayhis salaam), as many Christians believe, for at least two reasons. = Firstly, the Christians and the Catholics describe him as the son of God and not the servant of God; whereas Prophet Muhammad is known exclusively as the Servant and the Messenger of God. = Secondly, Jesus was sent exclusively to the Jews whereas Prophet Muhammad was sent among the Gentiles." />

ISLAAM AND OUR BELOVED PROPHET (SALLALLAAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) CONNECTION TO THE BIBLE

Do you know that Islam and our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and His Forefather (Prophet Isma'l alayhis salaam) have a good historical links with the Bible (Gospel and the Old Testament)? ____________ >> In the Old Testament, Genesis, 21:21 it is said: "He (Prophet Ishmael/Isma'il) dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran; and his Mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt." >> Psalm 83: 4-6 talks about the enemies of among others Ishmaelites (Isma'il a.s), and Hagrites (Hajar being the mother of Prophet Isma'il). >> Psalm 84: 4-6 "4~Blessed are those who dwell in your House; They will still be praising You. 5~Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on the pilgrimage. 6~As they pass through the valley of Baca. They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools." There are several interesting points in the above verses. The name #Baca could be Hebrew whereas the word 'Makkah' is Arabic.
