    Yes............
    the "Ali" concept was fabricated it is the word. A part this, He is an historical figure.


    Funny because you demonstrate that Ali was not the name of that amir  ; funnier is the fact that you say the same thing as Dequin but you oppose his sayings.  Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

    Quote
    Well... There are testimonies that the 8th c.Umayyads have started to organize a pilgrimage to Mecca. It is findable in academia.


    Are you referring to a papyrus found at Nessana if I am correct inviting someone to attend the hajj ? Honestly, I don't see how a pilgrimmage to Mecca under the Umayyads could have happened.

    Quote

    Beliefs, doctrina in islam are not my topic. My topic is the Quran. What the "muslims" have elaborated from it with the help of other religious traditions is a specific topic in itself which have nothing to see with the autho(rs) of the Quran and this one does not interest me. As I said, Dequin should write a monography about the origin of the Shia without binding it with the origin of the Quran which is another topic.


    My topic is the authors of the Quran, not what are the external influences which have shaped what the "Muslims" fabricated from it in Iraq.



    You are funny because the starting point was Dequin, not your work about early islam. Dequin's paper title is Early ʿAlī worship and creation of the Abbasid worldview ; he is not trying to deal with Quran origins and Quran writers.

     The Ascent of Ishmael Genealogy, Covenant, and Identity in Early Islam
    https://www.academia.edu/41329340/The_Ascent_of_Ishmael_Genealogy_Covenant_and_Identity_in_Early_Islam
    Quote
    This essay argues that biblical genealogy serves as a fundamental organizing principle in the Qurʾān. In particular, the Qurʾān anchors the cultic and scriptural aspects of the Prophet’s mission squarely on his community’s descent from Abraham via Ishmael. The first part of the essay marshals qurʾānic evidence in support of this claim and critiques a number of recent studies that downplay or deny the significance of Abrahamic-Ishmaelite genealogy in the Qurʾān. The second part reinforces this significance by demonstrating that Ishmael’s qurʾānic characterization as an upright prophet sharply contrasts with his predominantly negative portrayals in pre-Islamic writings. The final part shows that modern scholars initially acknowledged Abraham and Ishmael’s key ancestral and cultic roles in the Qurʾān but came to see these roles as exclusively Medinan constructs. The essay challenge this view and offers a different explanation for the Qurʾān’s varying portrayals of Abraham and Ishmael.

    Yes. I started using this thread as the place to put up links to articles on early Islam as well as the quran. I then started the other thread for anything about Islamic history that clearly isn’t about early Islam, though I haven’t been very consistent about this. I know the thread title doesn’t really fit the content of the thread, but that’s the way it is.

    Sijpesteijn seems to have a lot of imagination and reads a lot into the papyrus message. The note really doesn't seem a directive to take up a journey of +1000 km by camel, through the desert to Mecca. Rather it's  a directive to go to the towns camel market.

    If anything this papyrus works against Mecca. But of course S. doesnt consider that possibility. Maybe not enough imagination after all?

    637 Jerusalem: Arabs military leaders order to build the House. Why? Because literati around the military leaders tell them to do so.
    Q 2, 127: And remember Abraham and Isma'il raised the foundations of the House (with this prayer): "Our Lord! accept (this service) from us: for Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.
    As long as you do not want to envisage this verse as a plausible reason of the building of the House in the Temple Mount you will not get it.
    But envisaging it questions all what you think about the Quranic texts that you consider being late, etc. As you do not want moving on this, you're stuck. It's factual.

    We are not going to start that discussion again ; until there are more solid proofs, I cannot buy it nor do I buy the artificial link with Q 2:127.

    Quote
    One explanation for for the Dome, which holds that 72/691–2 marks its completion, anchors its construction in the events of this still-raging civil war. According to this interpretation, which finds support in a number of relatively early histories, the war between the Marwanids (the clan of Umayyads that took its name from ‘Abd al-Malik’s father) and the Zubayrids (that is, Ibn al-Zubayr and his brothers) had made it either impossible or undesirable for Syrians to carry out the ritual obligation of the Hajj – the Pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina in Arabia. According to this reading, ‘Abd al-Malik built the Dome of the Rock as an alternative pilgrimage site. One guess holds that the building works took about three years to complete, and, as it happens, the resulting date of 69 (where one arrives by subtracting three years from the inscription date of 72) is actually mentioned by one of the accounts that supports this interpretation, in this case a thirteenth-century historian, here citing late eighth- and early ninth-century authors: “We have already said that ‘Abd al-Malik began to build it in the year 69. According to al-Waqidi (an historian who died in 823), the reason for its construction was that Ibn al-Zubayr had then taken control of Mecca and, during during the Pilgrimage season, he used to catalogue the vices of the Marwanid family, and to summon (the people) to pay homage to him (as caliph). He was eloquent, and so the people inclined towards him. ‘Abd al-Malik, therefore, prevented the people from performing the Pilgrimage” (Elad, ‘Dome’, 34, slightly modified). According to this interpretation, the Dome of the Rock thus reflects intra-Muslim politics. There are alternative interpretations, however. These explain the Dome of the Rock by adducing not intra-Muslim politics, but inter-monotheistic polemics. Whatever one makes of the precise timing of the Dome of the Rock’s construction and how it relates to Ibn al-Zubayr’s control of the Meccan sanctuary, one must account for the fact that ‘Abd al-Malik chose to site his building not merely at the heart of the Holy Land, but upon the Temple Mount – that is, Judaism’s most sacred spot.

    Nope it is not. Jerusalem was the first hajj after they build the House in 637 because  (for me ...)of  Q 2:127.

    Quote
    -125- Remember We made the House a place of assembly for men and a place of safety; and take ye the Station of Abraham as a place of prayer; and We covenanted with Abraham and Isma'il, that they should sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in Prayer)
    -127- And remember Abraham and Isma'il raised the foundations of the House (with this prayer): "Our Lord! accept (this service) from us: for Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.


    It is  what they did in 637 as son of Ishmael therefore sons of Abraham that they were since ages (Jewish and Christian propaganda ...)  without knowing that a guy called Zubayr will take over the stuff 50 years later as the story around the Quranic texts were developed.

    Mecca/Medina did not exist at that time until the Zubayr faction invented it from the Quranic texts they have to sit their symbolic power vs ‘Abd al-Malik. As all the story comes from the Zubayr side, ‘Abd al-Malik gets it back after 692 having defeated him.
    It is plausible, logic, etc...
    Of course one cannot call Zubayr on his Iphone... Wink

    Quote
    Likewise, those coins that depicted and praised the Persian ruler Xosrov, who ruled until 628, did not seem to offend the Lakhmid Ishmaelites, although the king was of Zoroastrian faith. Before the reform, al-Malik’s rival, the Quraysh az-Zubair, was found on a coin dated 686, identified as caliph. A coin dated 692 that bore al-Malik’s name was made of the same stamp series but said “partisan of the Caliph” and bore also the imprint “Muhammad, Apostle of God.” Al-Malik had been used on a coin dated 685 once before in connection with the prophet Muhammad. There, he was branded “governor” of his (future) enemy az-Zubair.

    637 is the taking over by Arabs of Jerusalem it is not a pilgrimage...
    And what they do? they build a house competing with the Jews.
    Who told them to do so? It comes from where?
    As Q 2:127 is showing what their fathers did, ( And remember Abraham and Isma'il raised the foundations of the House) they felt legitimate to do so...as there was nothing anymore on the Mount.

    -125- Remember We made the House a place of assembly for men and a place of safety; and take ye the Station of Abraham as a place of prayer; and We covenanted with Abraham and Isma'il, that they should sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in Prayer)

    Quote
    From the evidence of the coins struck in the name of Abdallah bn Zubayr, we can infer that his appointment as emir of those who grant safety/who led the faith came to an end in Darajbjird in the year 60 of the Arabs. Immediately afterwards, he was mentionned as a provincial ruler, but with no title, in Ardarsir-Khurra from the years 65-67 of the Arabs. In Kirman his name is found on coins from the years 62-69 of the Arabs. Coins from the years 63 and 66 of Istakhr in the Persis. This shows that he had been sidelined and the leadership has been taken over by the more radical, messianic "Servant of the Lord of the Day of Judgement ('Abd al-Malik).

    The natural link is that Jerusalem is the place of Abraham in Jewish traditions.The Temple is build there because of the ligature of Isaac it is the traditional view of the Jews. Arabs are sons of Abraham. The link is there. But Jerusalem has no Temple any more and is hold by Christianity. So there is no pilgrimage.

    When you are in power you're in peace. Zubayr was in power in Damascus, as Muawiya was in power in Iraq? Surely not.
    Zubayr had enough support to mint coins vs the Umayyad occupation in Iraq but he was not in "power". He was revolting against Damascus who hold Iraq since Muawiya.

    "Any Muslim who needs hadith to understand ORIGINAL QURAN   is NOT Quranist  neither he is Muslim., He is an idiot  and Islamic religious bigot  and following cultural Islam NOT ORIGINAL QURAN.. "

    well this post is a good one from Altara.. good responses to Marc doubts  but I don't get this question 

    Why the Jews go and pray on Abraham's tomb in Hebron?    Because they are forbidden of Jerusalem since 135.

    I didn't get that .. was that sarcastic question ..??   you really do not know the answer??

    But it is an interesting question w.r.t the date  when actually Islamism Rulers eliminated Jewish folks praying at that site  and history of that city Hebron  which is at present in  Palestine southern West Bank, ~ 20miles to the  south of Jerusalem   in the Judaean Mountains,  It is also famous for Murders and mayhem

    As we know that Jews and Muslims both claim the so-called " burial site of Abraham in Hebron " as their own.   and Hebron is very very famous NOT because of it is birth place /buried place of those Jewish   patriarchs and matriarchs  such as ....Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob .........but because of THIS HERO FROM AMERIKA   ..........

    But Muslims/or non-Muslims specially Christians and Jews ., it is worth reading and worth  learning about that city Hebron ..

    Yeez - that video is from a school in the US ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebron_Academy ). It has nothing whatever to do with Hebron - the one in Palestine - or with this thread.

     Cheesy   I know that zeca I know ., well don't you see in that post how that AMRIKA produces such wonderful songs as well as produces fellows like Baruch Goldsteins and osama bin ladens and Anwar al-Awlakis   and and play both side of the games..

    But..but give me links on time line + history of that city Hebron  .. I would appreciate that

    with best wishes

    Quran 2:127

    I am starting to buy into the link. The masjid al Haram of Quran could be Jerusalem and the total focus of these first 5 surahs could be Jerusalem.

    The first hajj being Jerusalem? That is something different again. What points to that?

    Let's look at Sijpelseijn's article again. It talks about a hajj as the local fair, could be anything/anywhere.

    I think you got lost in your own thoughts at some stage ; you created a controversy that didn't exist, at least in my mind, and now you have sailed to another destination.

     Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy No they pray there because his tomb is there. That is the reason they go to that place.

    Anyway, you both didn't understand my point so let me try and make it clear (if I can) :

    - Arabs know they were related to Abraham,
    - that is why we can see them going and praying on locations related to Abraham (Mamre, Hebron) and we know this from history,
    - now I am to believe that out of the blue Arabs because they read a verse in a text go to a place they were never linked with and build something there,
    - because I find this hard to believe (things don't pop up like this) and because that verse is cryptic at best, I cannot buy into this explanation and i favor a more classical one based on sources that have historical grounds
    - I might be wrong but I cannot base my rationale on thin air,
    - So I was taking the examples of Hebron and Medina just to show that there were traditions based on clear facts and not some unknown reasons that we have to guess.

    When you are in power you're in peace. Zubayr was in power in Damascus, as Muawiya was in power in Iraq? Surely not.
    Zubayr had enough support to mint coins vs the Umayyad occupation in Iraq but he was not in "power". He was revolting against Damascus who hold Iraq since Muawiya.

    .Zubayr was revolting.


    This is the muslim tradition you are quoting and even that tradition hardly hide that az Zubayr might have been the rightful ruler ; numismatics (see AJ Deus) confirm this.
