    Islam Lineage of six prominent prophets according to Islamic tradition Adem (Adam) Nūḥ (Noah) Ibrāhīm (Abraham) Ismā'īl (Ishmael) Isḥāq (Isaac) Mūsa (Moses) Marīam (Mary) ʿĪsā (Jesus) Abdul-Muttalib Muhammad Ishmael is recognized as an important prophet and patriarch of Islam. Muslims believe that Ishmael was the firstborn of Abraham, born to him from his second wife Hagar. Ishmael is recognized by Muslims as the ancestor of several prominent Arab tribes and being the forefather of Muhammad.[36] Muslims also believe that "Muhammad was the descendant of Ishmael that would establish a great nation, as promised by God in the Old Testament.[37]" And...

    President Barack Obama is right that the U.S. and the West, in general, are "not at war with Islam." As he has said, 99.9% of Muslims want exactly what the rest of us desire peace, justice and happiness. But the air is thick with misunderstandings and lies. Recently a Muslim woman was banned from wearing a headscarf called a hijab in a Quebec courtroom. Far from hiding a woman's face, the hijab is a tasteful symbol of a traditional respect for modesty, not a mask. Many non-Muslims in the West have no idea how huge a contribution was made...

    Answering Islam ^ | 12/18/14 | Sam Shamoun
    (I offer this for those who need information to refute the lies about Islam being just another religion born from Abraham. Muhammad is NOT a descendant of Ismael and thus it is not a fulfillment of a prophecy given to Hagar in Genesis 16:11 or Genesis 21:13-21.) Ishmael is not the Father of Muhammad Sam Shamoun According to the Holy Bible Ishmael settled in Paran and married an Egyptian from whom he had twelve sons: "Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders...
  • The Bible Anticipates Islam...ISlam and the Bible pt 3

    Islam as a world religion didn’t burst onto the world scene until the 7th century AD. But in the 14 plus centuries since, it has played a major role in world affairs, as a foil to the Judeo Christian world, and a scourge on India, the Levant, Persia, Southern Asia, much of Africa, the Caucasus, and even part of China. Many have forgotten that Islam menaced Europe as late as the 17th century when the siege of Vienna ended. It was as recent as early in the last century that the Caliphate of Sunni Islam finally collapsed, after Ottoman Turkey...

    SNIPPET: "Actually, two have been convicted by a jury for using their nightclubs to launder the proceeds of drug and weapons deals, one was acquitted of money laundering but has pled guilty to a drug trafficking charge, and one of those convicted of money laundering has now been charged with tax evasion. And that's not to mention the failure to pay state liquor taxes and fees, the unsolved murder of a one-time business partner, and various immigration-related issues. Money was transferred in to a relative and known Hizballah operative in Lebanon, and there are strong ties to the Lebanese expat...
  • Sons Of Ishmael- Islam In Prophecy pt 2

    We have been discussing recent events in the Arab world. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Jordan , Saudi Arabia, Dubai, among others are being shaken by massive, violent, popular demonstrations. Governments are falling, factions are being emboldened, and as in the late 1980s in Eastern European Soviet ruled nations, fear of brutal leaders is dissolving. There are two things these Middle Eastern nations have in commo; they are Arabic, and they are majority Muslim, and in the midst of a revival of fundamentalist Islam. That is why the so-called democratic aspect of these upheavals is meaningless. As we have seen reently...

    "And Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil soup and he ate and he drank and he rose and he went and Esau despised the birthright." (From this week's Torah portion, Toldot, Genesis 25:34) Esau is a practical guy. Modern. He isn't interested in "birthrights," titles and mysticism. He builds the world with his own two hands. Jacob's soup smells good and if his primitive dreamer of a brother wants some intangible entity in exchange for the red stew, he is more than happy to sell it to him. After all, everybody dies in the end anyway, so what good is...
  • "St. John of Damascus Critique of Islam" (the heresy of the Ishmaelites)

    St. John of Damascuss Critique of Islam Webmaster note: The following passage is from Saint Johns monumental work, the Fount of Knowledge, part two entitled Heresies in Epitome: How They Began and Whence They Drew Their Origin. It is usually just cited as Heresies. The translators introduction points out that Fount of Knowledge is one of the most important single works produced in the Greek patristic period,offering as it does an extensive and lucid synthesis of the Greek theological science of the whole period. It is the first great Summa of theology to appear in either the East or the...

    Sorry about the vanity but I already in the past few hours have heard multiple references stop not being sure what James Lee motives were or questions about whether he was right-wing or left-wing because he mentioned being against anchor babies. Alan Colmes on my drive home was ranting at Steve Mulzberg that he was against anchor babies and that was a right-wing cause. Well I happen to have the book ISHMAEL on my bookshelf. I read it sometime about ten years ago and James Lee motives for being against immigration all come from this book as well. It has...

    A Wild Ass of a Man Posted on August 23, 2010 by billrandles The Ground Zero Mosque controversy has many dimensions to it. For example there are political aspects involved, and of course religious tensions have emerged as well. The divide between left and right in this country has been exposed by it also. Finally, the rift between our own ruling elite and the rest of the country has been highlighted through this conflict. But one aspect of this story has yet to be examined, to my knowledge. This episode is an illustration for all of the world to see...

    Iraqi policemen shot dead four US soldiers and their local interpreter in the main northern city of Mosul on Tuesday, an interior ministry official said. "Four US soldiers and their Iraqi interpreter were killed by two Iraqi policemen who opened fire at them in the Dawasa district of (central) Mosul and then fled," the official told AFP, declining to be named. The incident took place during a US army visit to the Mosul headquarters of the Iraqi police in charge of protecting the city's bridges, police said. The bullet-riddled body of the interpreter was taken to the local mortuary. It...

    Chapter 9, part 2 of The Blessings of Abraham: Becoming a Zion PeopleBy E. Douglas ClarkA few years hence, [1] to celebrate the weaning of Isaac, Abraham put on what Genesis calls a great feast (Gen. 21:8) or a great banquet (NJB Gen. 21:8). It was a sumptuous spread, a lavish offering open to all and attended by a great multitude, including, as Jasher reports, all the great people of the land who came to eat and drink and rejoice. [2] The event was also a harbinger, says Jewish tradition, of things to come, for the Holy One ... will...

    One of my favorite stories is of famished Samaria under siege. "Hear the word of the Lord," Elisha said in 2 Kings 7, "Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria." He was announcing imminent bargain prices on a starvation day when "a donkey's head was sold for eighty shekels of silver" and some dove's dung for five shekels (2 Kings 6:25). Sure. No way. Who will not pity Saul? Nothing was happening. The brave hero, having waited seven days...

    I recently set out to learn more about Islam. I had no agenda at the time except to broaden my knowledge on the subject. What I have learned sickened me. I had previously been accepting of the notion that Islam was a peaceful religion and that the Muslim terrorists who inflict so much pain and death around the world represented a fringe element outside of mainstream Islam. I was wrong. The Islamic deity, Allah, is a false god. While the term "Allah" does indeed carry the same meaning as "God," Mohammed's Allah is nothing more than a construct of a...

    Evangelicals outraged over Bush's 'same god' remark Christian leaders express dismay: 'He is commander in chief, not theologian in chief' Posted: November 24, 2003 11:26 a.m. Eastern 2003 Many Evangelical Christians in the U.S. say they are outraged over President George Bush's statement that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. The statement was made Thursday, during the joint press conference in England with Prime Minister Tony Blair. A reporter noted that Bush has frequently expressed the view that freedom is a gift from "the Almighty," but questioned whether the Bush believes "Muslims worship the same Almighty" as...

    Ishmael Ishmael, from the Hebrew word meaning God hears, was the son of Abraham and Hagar, the Egyptian maid of his wife Sarah. When Sarah had found herself not having children, she arranged to have a child with Abraham by Hagar acting as a surrogate mother (Genesis 16:1-4), even though God had specifically stated that a child would be born to Sarah in due time (see Isaac). The result was bitter conflict between Ishmael and Isaac, and their descendants, that has gone on right to the present day. Ishmael was born at Mamre, when Abraham was 86, 11 years...
