ANSWERS TO A PASTOR: 20 October 2016 on FB
Pastor: Quran calls Mary mother of Jesus as a Sister of Aaron. So Quran has error, because Aaron lived long before Mary and cannot be his sister.
Sufi Answers: Mary (peace be upon her) was genealogical sister of Aaron(peace be upon him). It is a custom among traditional communities to call upon people by the lineage of their famous relatives.
See Matthew 1:20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. (NIV)
According to this logic and analogy of the Pastor which is used for criticising the Holy Quran, Gospel of Matthew also must be considered as error, as David is not the father of Joseph the Promised Husband of Mary (I.e according to the Christian books). Because King David (peace be upon him) lived 28 generations before Joseph (See MATTHEW 1:17) and calling someone as son of David who lived 28 generations after David, cannot be justified in their faith, while such analogy in Islam considered as error by the same pastor!
CHRISTIAN MISCONCEPTION OF THE QURAN (19:28)
SISTER OF AARON : 7 May 2017 on FB
Quran 19:28 “O sister of Aaron! thy father was not a man of evil nor thy mother a woman unchaste!”
Al Mughira bin Shu’bah (may Allah be well pleased with him) narrated: The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) sent me to Najran. They said to me: ‘Do you people not recite: ‘O sister of Harun (Sura Maryam 19:28)- while between Musa and Eisa there is such (gap)as there is!?’ I did not know how to respond to them. So when I returned to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) , I told him about that, and he said: ‘Why didn’t you tell them that they were named after their Prophets and righteous people before them.” (Sahih)
Jami At-Tirmidhi 3155
Comments: Even today, Christians comes with this arguments to point out this verse as an error of the Quran without knowing it’s context and meaning.
I talked to those Christians the same point in this Hadith which came my heart a few months ago , before reading this Hadith today. And I gave them a proof from their own Bible to show support my point and as you see this Hadith.
That point I gave them was: Jesus is called son of David in the New Testament, as there is generation gap between Christ and Prophet David (Peace be upon them) , the Bible calls Messiah son of David.
Such is the situation of those hearts who claim they have the power of Holy Spirit and are living in Christ and God.
REFUTING CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS: (15 January 2018):
Answering Christian Prince:
Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) who was born centuries after David is known as son of David.
The foolish school level Christian Prince (high level scholar in Christian world standard) cannot understand the traditions of the biblical families to call their children by their glorious ancestors family names .
Matthew 1:1 This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham:
Matthew 15:22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”
Matthew 20:31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
Matthew 22:42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” “The son of David,” they replied.
Mark 10:48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus son of David and David son of Abraham. CP and other Christian apologetics can only attack Islam with their hypocrisy and double standard.
So If Jesus can be called son of David , and if David can be called as Son of Abraham, and if Joseph can be called Son of David in the scriptures, then what is the problem if the Quran calls Mary as sister of Imran??? (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon them), except your hypocrisy and double standard!.
Calling someone brother or sister of someone else is a general custom even today!. But calling someone as “Son” of so and so or as “father” of so an so other than the actual father is more problematic than calling someone as brother or sister of someone!
The hadith Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asking the Christians and Jews that do they call their children with the name of their prophets and pious men is clearly in accordance with the book’s of Christians and Jews. That shows the the words in the Quran and the Hadith of the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) in in full agreement with the Gospel and the tradition of the people of that time who used to call their children (like Jesus,Jospeh, Mary Peace be upon them and so on) by the names of their Prophets and glorious ancestors.
Even the Angel of the Lord calls the children by the name of their ancestors!
But the liars continue to attack Islam!. It is a disease in their heart not holding on to truth or to the corroborated facts their own books !!!
Every time this apologetic missionaries speak (who believe that they are commissioned by Holy Spirit to preach the Gospel), they expose their lack of wisdom and understanding, their hypocrisy and double-standard (poor Judgement of the words of Quran equally with the Bible) which ultimately shows the world that they have no Holy Spirit and Truth in them, nor the human attributes like logic, rationality,common sense, intelligence, honesty and truth etc!
When will you all get redemption from IGNORANCE AND lies???
THE FOOLISHNESS OF ANOTHER APOLOGETIC:
This person’s square head thinks that, Mary is not Levite, but Judah, and Quran calls Mary as sister of Aaron is incorrect because Aaron is from Levi!. Such foolishness is again a school level understanding. Because, the Tribes of Israel married among them, they were even married to non-Israelite followers of God (The Wife of Prophet Moses, peace be upon him) the Esau, the son of Isaac (Peace be upon him) married Daughter of Ishmael (Peace be upon him) and so on.
In my experience with many Christian scholars, when the truth is presented to them, they refuse to listen to it, or they rejected it , some of them said not to discuss with them anymore, some of them said to me do not read Bible anymore, some said, don’t mail to us this, some said to remove them from their mailing list , some of them refused to discuss, some of them were blocked us on Whatsapp and facebook, some are very silent
Peace be upon the Prophets and Messengers of Allah
Praise be to Allah the Lord of All Creations.
