This is a common problem people think that they have the power to change someone’s belief. You cannot even stop your own desires so how could you change anyone else’s opinion never mind faith.
As for the apparent rebuttals that you have given none are based on any facts. If you have recorded sources then please forward them to me.
My belief is like the belief of all the Prophets which I believe in God without description other than the description that God gave himself.
Even in modern times you can find different types of the bible and there are many differences even the King James Version is different.
Whilst the Quran has one version that’s it even groups that disagree, agree that the Quran is protected. Then compare this to the bible it has several versions if not hundreds and people will buy a bible that they are happy with. If you like to drink and sleep with anyone you want then you buy the appropriate bible. So does this mean God was wrong when he sent mankind the bible? Because changing the original scripture to modern ways of live is stupid and in denial of the original message.
All the holidays are pagan holidays and they have roots in paganism and they were not reclaimed they were changed by the Christians. In order to spread Christianity easier. Like yourself you think by not praying and by just being a good person will save you but your belief is against all the Prophets and my belief is like the Prophets so I will go with them inshallah. If you belief something that’s is paganism don’t be surprised if you join the pagans!
As for yourself it’s a pagan belief system and a lot of what you said makes no sense because its not based on sources its based on conjecture.
In the king James version I have it does not give who actually said it, it is part of Psalms of David which can neither be sure that they correct because the original texts were destroyed when nebacessar invaded Jerusalam and then the next time the texts re-surface is years later.
The old and new testament has references to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) like:
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
Holy Qur'an 3:96-97
96 The first House (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bakka full of blessing and of guidance for all kinds of beings:
Becca is what Mecca was known as.
Isaiah 29:12 (read verses 11 through 18 for full context)
And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
This is how the Quran was revealed to Muhammad in the cave of hira. The Angel Gabriel came to him and ordered him to read and he said, "I am not a reader."
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
And he (Ishmael) shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. (Genesis 16:12).
And he (Ishmael) died in the presence of all his brethren. (Genesis 25:18).
One of numerous examples of '...and I will put my words into his mouth...' is given below from the Qur'an; the verses begin with the word 'Say':
"Say (O Muhammad): He Is Allah the One and Only;
Allah, the Eternal Absolute;
He Begetteth Not, Nor Is He Begotten:
And There Is None like unto Him.
The evidence for 'he shall speak in my name':
Every Surah (Chapter) of the Qur'an, except the ninth, begins with the words:
"In The Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful."
The Quran was revealed in verses and parts not all at once
Isaiah 28:10-13 (read verses 10 through 16 for full context)
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
The burden on Arabia. in the forest in Arabia
Burden here translated to from the word wah'i which means revelation. He was the only Arab Prophet.
1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.
2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.
3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.
It was ten thousand companions who accompanied the Prophet in the triumphant entry of Makkah and cleansing of Ka'bah of Idols.
Isaiah 60 Verses 6 to 18:
6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD.
7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.
10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.
12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
The Ka'bah is not exactly cubical and its sides are not of the same length. The Holy Sanctuary (Haram) of which Ka'abah is at the center remains open day and night throughout the year and it is always filled with people praying and supplicating to Allah (the One True God). Muslims face toward it during prayer forming circle in the Haram (Holy House) and the circle extends out in this manner throughout the planet Earth.
The holy sanctuary (Haram) has remained unconquerable. Abraha al-Ashram, the Abbysinian viceroy of Yemen, tried to demolish it in 570 CE with a strong army and hordes of elephants but was prevented from entering the city (Holy precinct). The people of Makkah had decided not to defend the Ka'bah, fled the city and took refuge in nearby hills overlooking Ka'bah. By Allah's Command, the 'Abaabeel' (flying creatures, birds) pelted stones at Abraha's army and decimated it, leaving them like green crops devoured by cattle. This incident is described in the Surah (chapter) 105 of the Qur'an. The year 570 CE is popularly known by the Arabs as 'The year of the Elephant,' and Prophet Muhammad was born in that year.
Song of Solomon 5:16
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.
The phrase "he is altogether lovely" reads in the Hebrew as "he is Mahamaddim."
And I will shake all nations, and the Himada of all the nations will come; and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts. Mine is the silver, mine is the gold, says the Lord of hosts, the glory of my last house shall be greater than that of the first one, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place I will give Shalom, says the Lord of Hosts. (Quoted from Reference 4).
The Hebrew words Mahmad, Mahamod, Himdah, and Hemed appearing in the Old Testament and the Arabic words Muhammad and Ahmad are all derived from the same root "H, M and D," and refer to the same general meaning. These Hebrew words convey qualities as well as the person depending on the phrase used in the Old Testament.
The Hebrew word Shalom and the Arabic word Salam have the same meaning - peace. They are derived from the root alphabets "S, L and M." Islam is also derived from the same root alphabets and means the path of peace.
12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:
13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.
Arabia and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with thee in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy merchants.
The dominate trade in Mecca was people who buying and selling, Merchants!
"AND THE AHMED OF ALL NATIONS WILL COME." - HAGGAI, ii.7.
the same root words as the name Muhammad
The new Testament
And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are thou? 20. And he confessed, and denied not: but confessed, I am not the Chrsit.21. And they asked him, what then? Art thou Elias? and he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? and he answered no.
So there was questioning of the Prophet John about three people who was that Prophet? He is Muhammad.
Jesus (upon him peace) said,
"If you love me, keep my commandments.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of
these least commandments, and shall
teach men so, he shall be called the
least in the kingdom of heaven . . ." (matthew 5:19)
The Ten Commandments are meant here and ascribing another deity to God is breaking the first and most important commandment.
1. I am the Lord your God
2. You shall have no other gods before me
3. You shall not make for yourself an idol
Jesus says in John 16.7
"Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the comforter will not come unto you; but I depart, I will sent him to you."
Who is the comforter? the Quran describes the Prophet Muhammad as a mercy to the universe what else could a mercy be except comfort!
"... for he shall not speak from himself but whatsoever he shall hear, that he shall speak."
In the new English bible says
"For he will not speak on his own authority, but will tell only what he hears."
The revelation of the Quran was heard or delievered to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) like this by the angel Gabriel and sometimes directly.
