שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

The Furqan

Posted By Snow at 8/26/2010

Surah Al-A'la

Recently, I heard the mosque reciting the Fajr prayer. & I clearly overheard these verses:
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
[إن هذا لفي الصحف الأولى [18] صحف إبراهيم وموسى [19
Indeed, this is in the former scriptures.
The scriptures of Abraham and Moses.

[Holy Quran 87:18-19]
Wow. How is it that I, who can't speak much arabic, actually recognize these verses. سنقرئك فلا تنسى الا ماشاء الله [Q87:6-7] (◠v◠) So I was wondering what surah it was from. Then, I randomly open the Quran. & it's exactly the surah for the verses! Surah Al-A'la (The Most High). The Quran states that Rasulullah recited this surah for the two Eid prayers. ماشاء الله

What's more, now I keep randomly opening Surah An-Najm. It also has:
[أم لم ينبأ بما في صحف موسى [36] وإبراهيم الذي وفى [37
Or has he not been informed of what was in the scriptures of Moses.
And (of) Abraham, who fulfilled (his obligations).
[Holy Quran 53:36-37]
The scriptures of Abraham & Moses. It shares the same message as the Quran. [QA Torah] So much so, that the Torah is called the Furqan (الفرقان : separator of right & wrong) - just like the Quran. [Q2:53, Q2:185]

Agreeably, both Abraham & Moses are believed by jews, christians & muslims. But somehow, not Jesus & Muhammad, even though they too deliver the same message. ومصدقا لما بين يدي من التوراة [Q3:50], نزل عليك الكتاب بالحق مصدقا لما بين يديه وأنزل التوراة والإنجيل [Q3:3]

Still, even if the faiths differed, both Abraham & Moses advised that the Hereafter is better and more enduring. That we can have nothing but what we do. & our efforts will be shown to us for recompense.
[39] ألا تزر وازرة وزر أخرى [38] وأن ليس للإنسان إلا ما سعى
[41] وأن سعيه سوف يرى [40] ثم يجزاه الجزاء الأوفى
That no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And that there is not for man except that for which he strives. And that his effort is going to be seen. Then he will be recompensed for it with the fullest recompense. [Holy Quran 53:38-41]
Abraham preceded both Judaism & Christianity, yet his faith is still purely about surrendering in peace to the One Allah. & this is what defines a muslim. أسلمت لرب العالمين [Q2:131-132]

Ohh isn't nativity plays amusing. (◠v◠)v
