A Muslim throws some selective Quran verses in to his post and I am not certain that he is reading Quran properly
God didn't make all of the religions which are followed today. As a Muslim, I believe that Islam was here since the beginning. Many say that Islam was created by the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), but we Muslims believe that Muhammad was the last Prophet - not the first. The Qur'an, [3:67] says: ''ABRAHAM was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a MUSLIM [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists.'' We find similar verses in 2:132, 12:101, 2:133, 3:52, 5:111 and many more.
Hello A Muslim ., Glad to read your posts., CEMB forum has fair number of Muslims.. such as "A Muslim, The Muslim, Agnostic Muslim, Atheistic Muslim .. etc.. etc Muslim "
So I often wonder how many of them are REAL Muslims., Anyways ., I like reading Quran so let me read the verses you selected in your post..
003.067 : Ibrahim was not a Jew nor a Christian but he was (an) upright (man), a Muslim, and he was not one of the polytheists.
002.132: And the same did Ibrahim enjoin on his sons and (so did) Yaqoub. O my sons! surely Allah has chosen for you (this) faith, therefore die not unless you are Muslims.
012.101: My Lord! Thou hast given me of the kingdom and taught me of the interpretation of sayings: Originator of the heavens and the earth! Thou art my guardian in this world and the hereafter; make me die a muslim and join me with the good.
002.133 : Nay! were you witnesses when death visited Yaqoub, when he said to his sons: What will you serve after me? They said: We will serve your god and the god of your fathers, Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq, one Allah only, and to Him do we submit.
003.052: But when Isa perceived unbelief on their part, he said Who will be my helpers in Allah's way? The disciples said: We are helpers (in the way) of Allah: We believe in Allah and bear witness that we are submitting ones.
005.111: And when I revealed to the disciples, saying, Believe in Me and My messenger, they said: We believe and bear witness that we submit (ourselves).
that is what those verses say., Quran is a funny book., If choose and pick verses here and there from different chapters it sounds as if you are trying to brain wash the readers or your disciples.,But if you read some 5 verses below and above the the verse of your interest it tells you different story.
any ways your post with pick and choose verses does send a message to the readers
Funnily enough, (if I may add) Christianity itself was said by many Rabbi's, (for example) Ben Abrahamson to have been an heretical sect which arose from Judaism. But, Rabbi Ben Abrahamson also holds the thought that Islam might be the religion from the beginning. He calls it, ''the religion of Adam himself'' because the terms: Muslims, Salamays, Mushlams, Mushlems and Mushlimana are the believers' original title in the Hebrew and Aramaic scriptures, (the Bible).
Hmm., that is funny., So Islam started way before the birth of alleged Prophet of Islam "Muhammad"??
Now I wonder about all that biology., chemistry., Physics I read in My school and I wonder about Prophets and revelations before Abraham. Hell., Why start with Abraham? we should think about revelations and prophets even before Adam and Eve..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzmZjO1RDOQ
Errrr., you stupid yeeze..., why I think about all that Junk?? Just read the Quran you fool ., Allah., Prophet and revelations is good enough in this 21st century.. and My good wishes to you A Muslim
