In the name of Allāh,
the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Peace and Blessings of Allāh on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms.
While Judaism teaches the Unity of God, there is no such Divine doctrine as a “chosen people” to the exclusion of others –it would be an injustice for God to choose people because of their race/nationality: a factor over which we have no choice.
As Judaism was Divinely decreed to end upon the advent of the Prophet Mohammad (Genesis 49:10; Deut. 18:15, 18-19) “spiritually the Jewish religion has no future” (See Muhammad Ali’s comm. to Qur’an 17:8, 2:146; 7:157; 26:192-197; 46:10; www.muslim.org). (It is to be noted that Shiloh prophesied by Jacob, prophet like thee (Moses) mentioned by Moses, and the Comforter foretold by Jesus are the same one individual known by different names/titles).
SHILOH: Genesis 49:10 says that power and prophethood shall not depart from Judah until the coming of Shiloh: “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a law-giver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and UNTO HIM shall the gathering of the people be.”
Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud –“the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uniate-Chaldean sect”– has explained in his book Muhammad In The Bible that this prophecy cannot apply to Moses, David, or Jesus, but that it could relate only to Mohammad because “Muhammad came with military power and the Qur‘an to replace the old Jewish worn-out sceptre and the impracticable and old-fashioned law of sacrifices and of a corrupt priesthood.”
Prof. Dawud notes that the Jewish “institutions” of “Royal Sceptre and the Prophetical Succession” “have been extinct for over thirteen centuries;” and that “the tribe of Judah also has disappeared together with its royal authority and its sister –the prophetical succession”– both have been out of existence for the same period of time as the advent of Mohammad.
Thus, “The Jews are forced to accept one or the other of the two alternatives, namely, either to admit that Shiloh has come already, but that their fore-fathers did not recognize him (Allāh God, says they knew, Qur’an 2:146; 26:197), or to accept the fact that there exists no longer a tribe of Judah from which Shiloh will have to descend.” Moreover, the prophecy clearly states that Shiloh “is to be a total stranger to the tribe of Judah, and even to all the other tribes,” –the sceptre and the law-giver were to remain with Judah until the arrival of Shiloh. “If Shiloh be a descendant of Judah, how could those two elements [sceptre and lawgiver] cease to exist in that tribe?”
Shiloh “could not be a descendant of any of the other tribes either, for the sceptre and the lawgiver were for all Israel, and not for one tribe only. This observation explodes the Christian claim as well. For Jesus is a descendant of Judah –at least from his mother’s side.” It is clear from the above that “the Jews are vainly expecting the coming of another Shiloh, and that the Christians are obstinately persisting in their error in believing that it was Jesus who was intended by Shiloh.” (Muhammad in the Bible, pp. 54-58).
(Jesus was no ruler and no lawgiver. Jesus commanded his followers to obey the Scribes and Pharisees and to follow the Commandments brought by Moses [until the coming of the Comforter, Mohammad, who will guide into “all truth” and “abide for ever”] in order to attain eternal; life–Matthew 23:2-3; 19:16-19. Mohammad was king and lawgiver. See Jesus-Comforter).
That this prophecy about Shiloh has already been fulfilled is evident from the fact that present-day Jews could hardly identify themselves with the tribe of Judah or any of the Twelve Tribes Of Israel (which are no longer in existence); in fact Jews may be the descendants of the “Khazar” –an eighth century Turkish tribe– that converted to Judaism; the large majority of existing Jews is of “Eastern European” ancestry. (See Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe). Shiloh cannot come in the future to or from Judah or any of the other tribes of Israel when they do not exist.
That Biblical Jews, and Jesus, were black or dark-skinned see Jesus-seen in dreams; http://www.angelfire. com/ill/hebrewisrael/printpages/phys.html).
PROPHET LIKE MOSES: God said to Moses: “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee (Israelites) a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me (Moses); unto him ye shall hearken,” “And I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee (Moses), and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him”–(Deuteronomy 18:15, 18).
A brother/brethren is “a male who has the same parents as another or has one parent in common with another”–(Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary; brother). Ishmael and Isaac had one common parent, Abraham. Thus, their children –Arabs and Israelites– are “brethren” of the other. Mohammad is the prophet like Moses.
Further, God said about this prophet like Moses, “I…will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM” (“I Myself will call him to account” as The Jewish Publication Society of America has it)–(Deut. 18:18-19).
The Qur’an –which begins “In the name of Allāh God”– is the “words” which God put into the mouth of the Prophet Mohammad through the Angel Gabriel. And as God says, whosoever does not follow Mohammad that person will have to answer to Him for his/her disobedience/rejection.(See Jesus-like Moses).
Jewish expectation of a coming Messiah to redeem them has no Divine foundation.
“The Old Testament never speaks of an eschatological messiah –one inaugurating the last times– and even the “messianic” passages containing prophecies of a future golden age under an ideal king never use this term. Nevertheless, many modern scholars hold that Israelite messianism grew out of beliefs connected with kingship…When the vicissitudes of actual reality and the careers of particular historic kings proved more and more disappointing, the messianic kingship ideology was projected onto the future. With the declining national fortunes of Israel, whose political kingdoms were conquered or even abolished by the great empires (Assyria, Babylonia, etc), the notion developed of the eschatological messiah-king.”1
Elias, whom Jews are expecting, already returned, as John the Baptist, as Jesus says–(Matt. 11:11-14; 17:10-13, If John is not Elias, Jesus, the Christian’s God/Son of God, is wrong).
Deuteronomy 32:43 which says: “Praise his People, O Nations: For he will avenge the blood of his servants. He will render vengeance against his adversaries and make expiation for his land and his People,” does NOT refer to future nations but to the nations at the time of the many “ites” kingdoms that Joshua would exterminate, so God can keep His Word to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob–(Deut 7:6, 8, 12; 10: 15). This is stated in 32:49, where God showed Moses the land of Canaan: “and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the Children of Israel for a possession.” This blessing was tied in to Jews following Mohammad as stated in the next chapter that says:
“And this is the BLESSING, wherewith Moses…blessed the Children of Israel before his death. And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them”–(Deut. 33:1-2).
If Sinai and Seir refer to Moses and Jesus, respectively, “Mount Paran is not found in any other country except Arabia, Makkah being located in its valley”2 and refers to Mohammad; the ten thousand saints is the number of followers the Prophet Mohammad had upon his triumph at Makkah, and the fiery law is the Holy Qur’an.
MOHAMMAD IS THE BLESSING GOD GAVE TO JEWS.
Jews salvation lies in them accepting:
‘There is no God but Allāh;
Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
COMFORTER: (While Jews do not believe in Jesus). Jesus foretold the coming of “another” Comforter who will guide us into “all truth”: “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter that he may abide with you forever;” “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth”-(John 14:16; 6:13).
Jesus also says this “another” Comforter will “testify of” and “glorify” him–(John 15:26; 16:14).
Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud B.D. –“the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uniate-Chaldean sect”– points out:
“The Comforter –the Spirit of Truth– spoken of by Jesus was no other than Muhammad himself. It cannot be taken as the Holy Ghost, as the Church theology says. “It is expedient for you that I go away,” says Jesus, “for if I go not away the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart I will send him unto you” (John 16:7). The words clearly show that the Comforter had to come after the departure of Jesus, and was not with him when he uttered these words. Are we to presume that Jesus was devoid of the Holy Ghost if his coming was conditional on the going of Jesus: besides, the way in which Jesus describes him makes him a human being, not a ghost. “He shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear that he shall speak” (John 16:13). Should we presume that the Holy Ghost and God are two distinct entities and that the Holy Ghost speaks of himself and also what he hears from God? The words of Jesus clearly refer to some messenger from God. He calls him the Spirit of Truth, and so the Qur‘an speaks of Muhammad, “Nay, he has come with the Truth and verified the apostles” (Qur’an 37:37). (Muhammad In The Bible, p. 6).
Jesus says the Comforter will not speak of himself but what he hears-(John 16:13), which is the same as God informing Moses about Him raising up a prophet like Moses putting His words into “this” prophet’s mouth (as noted above). The words God put into the mouth of the prophet like Moses and the words the Comforter heard from God is the Qur’an–(Qur’an 53:3-5).
NEW JERUSALEM: As noted above, Moses informed his people: “The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them”–(Deut. 33:1-2). The only Prophet to come with ten thousand saints is Mohammad, and mount Paran is located in the valley of Makkah.
That the new “Jerusalem” is Makkah. Jesus says: “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he (Jesus) that came down from heaven, even the son of man which is in heaven”–(John 3:13).
“Son of man” is Barnasha in Hebrew. If Jesus is the “Son of God” who came down from heaven and the “son of man” was yet in heaven (to come), who is this son of man?
Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud –“the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uniate-Chaldean sect”– has shown in his book Muhammad In The Bible that “Son of Man” as mentioned by Jesus refers to the Prophet Mohammad. And has explained this prophecy to show that
“The new Jerusalem is none other than Mecca, for it is in a southern country, its two hills, the “Marwa” and “Sapha,” bear the same names as those of Moriah and Zion, of the same root and signification but originally earlier. “Irushalem” or “Urshalem” of old becomes a city of “Light and Peace.” It is for this reason, too, that Mecca as the seat of the sacred ka’aba became the “Qibla” –the direction towards which the Muslims turn their faces at prayer. Here every year tens of thousands (millions now) of pilgrim from all Muslim countries (and around the world) assemble, visit the Holy Ka’aba, offer sacrifices, and renew their fidelity to Allāh and promise to lead a new life worthy of a Musulman. Not only Mecca, but also Medina and the territory surrounding them, has become sacred and inviolable, and forbidden to any non-Muslim man or woman! It was in fulfilment of his vision of Idris or Enoch, too, that the second Khalipha, Omar, rebuilt the Sacred Mosque at Jerusalem on the hill of Moriah, on the spot of the Temple of Solomon! All these marvellously prove that the vision was seen by a Seer inspired by God, who saw the Muslim events in a far-distant future. Could Rome or Byzantium claim to be the New Jerusalem? Can the Pope or any schismatic Patriarch claim to be the Apocalyptic White Bull with two large horns? Can Christianity claim to be the Kingdom of Peace (Islam = “Shalom”) while it makes Jesus and the Holy Ghost coeval and consubstantial with the Absolute One God? Most decidedly not.
In those chapters dealing with the Kingdom of Peace, the Messiah is called Son of Man, but in the description of the Last Judgment which follows at the end of this Reign of Islam or Peace he is called “Son of Woman” and “Son of God,” and made to share with God in the Judgment of the World. It is admitted by all scholars that these extravagant and foolish statements are not of Jewish origin but belong to the Christian imaginations, inserted and interpolated by them.
The other Apocalypses, those which bear the names of Moses, Baruch, Ezra, the Jubilees, and the Oracula Sibylliana, should be studied impartially, for it is then that they, like those of Daniel and Enoch, will not only be understood but also prove to be fulfilled in Muhammad and Islam.” (pp. 257-263). (See also Islam-is Baca Makkah?).
God sending a Messiah to redeem Jews would contradict His decree that power and prophet-hood would be taken from the Israelites, who are to follow Shiloh–(Gen. 49:10); contradict His sending a prophet like Moses, whom the Israelites are to follow–(Deut. 18:15-19); contradict His sending the Comforter who will give “all truth” and “abide for ever”–(John 14:15 -16; 16:12-13); contradict His taking His kingdom from Jews and giving it to another people–(Matthew 21:43); contradict His decree that Jerusalem would cease to be the focus of Divine worship–(John 4:21; Isaiah 60:7; 65:15; Haggai 2:9; Mal. 1:11).
Allāh God raised messengers among all people and gave them guidance suitable to their people and for a limited period. Through the Prophet Mohammad Allāh has “completed” His favor to us and “perfected” our religion to the Resurrection and He requires us to follow this Law–the Qur’an.
The Qur’an consists of the teachings of past Scriptures that are applicable to all time and contains teachings not met with in past Scriptures. Thus, the Qur’an consists of, exceeds, and supersedes all Scriptures. No religion can be shown to be superior to or equal with Islam. (See Bible corrupt & obsolete; Jesus-redundant no ransom; Qur’an; Islam superior to other religions).
Unless a person wants to incur the wrath of God and account to Him his/her disobedience and opens himself/herself to Hell-fire.3 Whoever elects to embrace Judaism (or Chrsitianirty) is automatically obligated to follow “Shiloh” and the “prophet” like Moses (and the Comforter); and is thus propelled into following Mohammad/Islam.

3. Muhammad Ali notes in his comm. to Qur’an 2:80: ““It is a received opinion among the Jews at present that no person, be he ever so wicked, or of whatever sect, shall remain in hell above eleven months, or at most a year, except Dathan and Abiram and atheists, who will be tormented there to all eternity.”(Sale).”
What needs to be pondered over is whether the eleven months or one year, of the above belief, is in human time or Divine. Given the estimation that one day of God is equal to 1,000 years of human time–(Qur’an 22:47), one year of God would be 365,000 years. This is a terrifyingly long time to be in hell. Even if the time to be spent in hell is according to human reckoning (365 days) it is no light matter. A cook who has received on the bare skin a splash from a boiling pot may attest to the jolting sensation at the experience. Imagine then, one’s whole person being engulfed by flames or submerged in boiling liquid. Since the Hereafter is spiritual, it would seem then that time would be in Divine reckoning–365,000 years. Throw in another thousand years if it’s a leap year.
