WHY JESUS IS THE MESSIAH?

First of all, belief in anything religious at most is not imperative of evidence as I observes but rather through emotional attachment that is, influence. In the case of Christianity, whether there is evidence or not, faith comes initially through the process called calling as it say:

1 Corinthians 1:26-29

[26]For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

[27]But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

[28]And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

[29]That no flesh should glory in his presence.

Who are the ones called? Those who are predestinated to be children of God.

Ephesians 1:5

[5]Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Romans 8:30

[30]Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

How are we called? Through Jesus Christ calling us through our preachers. We hear jesus voice through them thus through it we feel an emotional attachment. We become influenced, then, afterwards we become christians.

2 Corinthians 13:3

[3]Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking by me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.

John 10:3-5,14,16

[3]To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

[4]And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

[5]And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

[14]I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

[16]And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 

Hebrews 3:15
[15]While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

Thus regarding evidence, it comes secondary to the calling. In cases wherein there is no evidence, calling is a confirmation to its reliability. Now that I’ve shown you the case for Christianity, is it indeed true that Jesus didn’t fulfill the prophecies meant for the messiah? Let us examine the jewish argument and show them how that they are wrong.

  • My answer in this format interjected within the issues.

One of the most common questions we receive at Aish.com is: “Why don’t Jews believe in Jesus?” Let’s understand why – not to disparage other religions, but rather to clarify the Jewish position.

Jews do not accept Jesus as the messiah because:

  1. Jesus did not fulfill the messianic prophecies.
  2. Jesus did not embody the personal qualifications of the Messiah.
  3. Biblical verses “referring” to Jesus are mistranslations.
  4. Jewish belief is based on national revelation.

But first, some background: What exactly is the Messiah?

The word “Messiah” is an English rendering of the Hebrew word Mashiach, which means “anointed.” It usually refers to a person initiated into God’s service by being anointed with oil. (Exodus 29:7, 1-Kings 1:39, 2-Kings 9:3)

(1) Jesus Did Not Fulfill the Messianic Prophecies

What is the Messiah supposed to accomplish? One of the central themes of biblical prophecy is the promise of a future age of perfection characterized by universal peace and recognition of God. (Isaiah 2:1-4, 32:15-18, 60:15-18; Zephaniah 3:9; Hosea 2:20-22; Amos 9:13-15; Micah 4:1-4; Zechariah 8:23, 14:9; Jeremiah 31:33-34)

Specifically, the Bible says he will:

  1. Build the Third Temple (Ezekiel 37:26-28).
  • Let’s quote:
  • Ezekiel 37:26-28
  • [26]Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
  • [27]My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
  • [28]And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

  • Nowhere did it specifically says that building the Third Temple is one of his mission. Tabernacle or sanctuary was nowhere to be interpreted as the Third Temple. It is not literal tabernacle/sanctuary or the physical temple of Solomon rebuilt. How come? A new covenant was said to be coming:
  • Jeremiah 31:31-32
  • [31]Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
  • [32]Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

  • When was that covenant? Obviously during the coming of the messiah as it say:
  • Daniel 9:24-27
  • [24]Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
  • [25]Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
  • [26]And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
  • [27]And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

  • As you can see, 70weeks would materialized. 69weeks would transpire since the command to rebuild and restore Jerusalem and this happened probably since Cyrus commanded the temple to be rebuilt. After the 62th week the messiah would be cut off most likely killed. The end of this is the last week wherein war and desolation was expected.
  • The question is, when did this all happen? When was there a messiah cut off close to the war and desolation?
  • War and desolation happened since the 70AD war instigated by Gen Titus. The closest event wherein an alleged messiah was cut off is during when Jesus was killed. So when was the new covenant initiated? Obviously, during Jesus time as logically, the only event yet that happened close to war and desolation. Therefore jesus is the true messiah as expressed by this reality. In essence, tabernacle/sanctuary must be interpreted by this new covenant we see as having laws. Tabernacle/sanctuary in the new covenant is the church of God–the people.
  • How about the covenant of peace?
  • The answer can be seen in the revelation of John–the millenial peace of israel after jesus comes to reign as king wherein Jerusalem would be the city of the saints. After this millennial peace would be Armageddon war, wherein all nation would battle israel–a breaking of peace then afterwards the eternal peace that continues to eternity. 
  • After Armageddon war, this would happens: eternal peace for Israel specifically, Jerusalem as one God (the unified godhead) or ONE YHWH (explanation later) reigns in it as king.
  • Zechariah 14:9
  • [9]And YHWH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be ONE YHWH and his name one.
  • Zechariah 14:16-21
  • [16]And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
  • [17]And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
  • [18]And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
  • [19]This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
  • [20]In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
  • [21]Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

  • That eternal peace is only possible after the Armageddon war. Prior to the Armageddon war, Jesus as yhwh comes down to the mt of olives. Should it not constitute reality that after the war the covenant of peace must have been effective?
  1. The messiah would gather all Jews back to the Land of Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6).
  • Isaiah 43:5-6
  • [5]Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
  • [6]I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;

  • Nothing in those verses suggested the intervention of the messiah.
  1. The messiah would usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall man learn war anymore.” (Isaiah 2:4)
  • This is a misinterpretation! How sure are you that you have interpreted the scriptures correctly? 
  • Isaiah 2:2-4
  • [2]And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
  • [3]And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
  • [4]And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

  • As you can see my premise how that the new covenant is the final ground for interpretation. I’ve shown you how that is relative to the gospel of Christ. And in the gospel, the lord’s house is the church wherein inside it war is eradicated but instead a conversion to something peaceful.
  1. The messiah would Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: “God will be King over all the world – on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One” (Zechariah 14:9).
  • Same as above. The gospel will be the final ground of interpretation for to make a contextual scripture. 
  • Zechariah 14:9
  • [9]And YHWH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be ONE YHWH and his name one.

  • IN THAT DAY THERE SHALL BE ONE YHWH implies that there were more than one YHWH.
  • Firstly, Jesus admitted to be the I AM as it say:
  • John 8:57-58
  • [57]Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
  • [58]Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 

  • Note the words used: I AM and not I WAS, thus confirming he too, is the I AM. Likewise, he too is YHWH as it say:
  • Zechariah 14:3-4,9
  • [3]Then shall YHWH go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
  • [4]And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
  • [9]And YHWH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one YHWH and his name one.

  • As you can see YHWH would come down to earth and that he would make one YHWH. We don’t believe God almighty himself would come down to earth but through a representative–Jesus himself being the I AM and as he once said: “he that hath seen me hath seen the father”.
  • So who is the ONE YHWH that would be king over the earth? The collective unity of God and Jesus. That as utilizing the contextual participation of the gospel as the final ground for interpretation. 

If an individual fails to fulfill even one of these conditions, then he cannot be the Messiah.

Because no one has ever fulfilled the Bible’s description of this future King, Jews still await the coming of the Messiah. All past Messianic claimants, including Jesus of Nazareth, Bar Cochba and Shabbtai Tzvi have been rejected.

Christians counter that Jesus will fulfill these in the Second Coming. Jewish sources show that the Messiah will fulfill the prophecies outright; in the Bible no concept of a second coming exists.


(2) Jesus Did Not Embody the Personal Qualifications of Messiah

A. Messiah as Prophet

The Messiah will become the greatest prophet in history, second only to Moses. (Targum – Isaiah 11:2; Maimonides – Teshuva 9:2)

Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry, a situation which has not existed since 300 BCE. During the time of Ezra, when the majority of Jews remained in Babylon, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets – Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.

Jesus appeared on the scene approximately 350 years after prophecy had ended, and thus could not be a prophet.

  • ASSUMPTION. Nothing to that effect, was spoken to that regard. And regarding sources other than the bible, we don’t accept other religious books than the bible as stated:
  • ISAIAH 34:16
  • Seek ye from the SEPHER OF YHWH (writing) and read, none of it shall fail, none wants REUTH (Additional one)…his spirit it hath gathered them.

  • Historically, no other religious books fit this description than biblical manuscripts. That as inclusive of the new covenant and its laws I mentioned earlier bec if this fits only the jewish scriptures, doesnt it need an additional one, that is, the prophesied new covenant and its laws? Of course, it needs it. Having this reality, the jewish scriptures cannot be the fulfillment of the one sepher of YHWH. It could only be the bible. Therefore the bible is the writing of God.

B. Descendant of David

Many prophetic passages speak of a descendant of King David who will rule Israel during the age of perfection. (Isaiah 11:1-9; Jeremiah 23:5-6, 30:7-10, 33:14-16; Ezekiel 34:11-31, 37:21-28; Hosea 3:4-5)

The Messiah must be descended on his father’s side from King David (see Genesis 49:10, Isaiah 11:1, Jeremiah 23:5, 33:17; Ezekiel 34:23-24). According to the Christian claim that Jesus was the product of a virgin birth, he had no father – and thus could not have possibly fulfilled the messianic requirement of being descended on his father’s side from King David. (1)

According to Jewish sources, the Messiah will be born of human parents and possess normal physical attributes like other people. He will not be a demi-god, (2) nor will he possess supernatural qualities.

  • I ask again, did you correctly interpreted the scriptures correctly? The messiah would come from his father’s side. Let’s quote their sources:
  • Genesis 49:10
  • [10]The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

  • Obviously, it is interpreted that way bec customary genealogy then was through the father but remember what I keep reiterating that the new covenant and its laws would be the final ground for interpretation? We believe that is the gospel which has been the abrogating part of the scriptures. Meaning, the new way of interpretation is a reality now through the gospel. 
  • Next,
  • Isaiah 11:1
  • [1]And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

  • That stem of Jesse is David and not a patriarchal line.
  • Jeremiah 23:5
  • [5]Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
  • Jeremiah 33:17
  • [17]For thus saith the LORD; David shall never cut off a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

  • True. But nowhere was it said that kings are the descendants of the messiah. 
  • Ezekiel 34:23-24
  • [23]And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
  • [24]And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.

  • Thank you for not confirming anything.

C. Torah Observance

The Messiah will lead the Jewish people to full Torah observance. The Torah states that all mitzvot remain binding forever, and anyone coming to change the Torah is immediately identified as a false prophet. (Deut. 13:1-4)

Throughout the Christian “New Testament,” Jesus contradicts the Torah and states that its commandments are no longer applicable. For example, John 9:14 records that Jesus made a paste in violation of Shabbat, which caused the Pharisees to say (verse 16), “He does not observe Shabbat!”

  • Let’s quote:
  • Deuteronomy 13:1-4
  • [1]If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
  • [2]And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
  • [3]Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
  • [4]Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

  • Thank you again for not confirming anything. Nothing that say the Torah is binding forever in fact, this is a selective reality bec the verses speaks of itself and not for the whole torah. Deut 13:1-4 is binding forever yet only for itself and not speaking of the whole torah. Jesus abrogated the torah as it say in Luke 16:16.

(3) Mistranslated Verses “Referring” to Jesus

Biblical verses can only be understood by studying the original Hebrew text – which reveals many discrepancies in the Christian translation.

A. Virgin Birth

The Christian idea of a virgin birth is derived from the verse in Isaiah 7:14 describing an “alma” as giving birth. The word “alma” has always meant a young woman, but Christian theologians came centuries later and translated it as “virgin.” This accords Jesus’ birth with the first century pagan idea of mortals being impregnated by gods.

  • Even new testament passage never specifically stated any virgin birth. 

B. Suffering Servant

Christianity claims that Isaiah chapter 53 refers to Jesus, as the “suffering servant.”

In actuality, Isaiah 53 directly follows the theme of chapter 52, describing the exile and redemption of the Jewish people. The prophecies are written in the singular form because the Jews (“Israel”) are regarded as one unit. Throughout Jewish scripture, Israel is repeatedly called, in the singular, the “Servant of God” (see Isaiah 43:8). In fact, Isaiah states no less than 11 times in the chapters prior to 53 that the Servant of God is Israel.

When read correctly, Isaiah 53 clearly [and ironically] refers to the Jewish people being “bruised, crushed and as sheep brought to slaughter” at the hands of the nations of the world. These descriptions are used throughout Jewish scripture to graphically describe the suffering of the Jewish people (see Psalm 44).

Isaiah 53 concludes that when the Jewish people are redeemed, the nations will recognize and accept responsibility for the inordinate suffering and death of the Jews.

  • Indeed, at some point, Ezekiel or isaiah expressed the death of Israel as a nation then afterwards revived. It could be reflected as the reality in Isaiah 53. It could possibly be talking about the death of Israel but then nothing is confirmatory of it bec matter of fact is, it could be speaking about the messiah. As for me, I prefer the latter. My evidence for it is this:
  • Daniel 9:24-27
  • [24]Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
  • [25]Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

  • [26]>>>>>And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.<<<<<<

  • [27]And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.


  • As you can see, there is a report about a messiah to be cut off before war and desolation. This would happen before the dispersal of Israel and its return to build one kingdom bec after this, there is no more any possibility of desolation in Israel. Whereas the cutting off of the messiah is prior to desolation.
  • Ezekiel 37:21-22
  • [21]And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
  • [22]And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
  • Amos 9:15
  • [15]And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

  • Why I believe Isaiah 53 speaks of the messiah? Bec in the abovementioned passages it implied the cutting off of the messiah happened before war and desolation and this desolation specifically speaks of the desolation prior to israel’s reestablishment as one nation that happened 1947 or 1948 bec after this there is no more desolation as implied “they shall no more be pulled out of their land”. Therefore the cutting off of the messiah happened before 1947 and before 70AD war and desolation. This only points to no other than the crucifixion of Jesus bec there was no other messiah killed before war and desolation other than Jesus Christ.
  • So why do i believe isaiah 53 speaks of the messiah?
  • Bec its a reality, the messiah was killed in the person of jesus christ.

(4) Jewish Belief is Based Solely on National Revelation

Throughout history, thousands of religions have been started by individuals, attempting to convince people that he or she is God’s true prophet. But personal revelation is an extremely weak basis for a religion because one can never know if it is indeed true. Since others did not hear God speak to this person, they have to take his word for it. Even if the individual claiming personal revelation performs miracles, they do not prove  he is a genuine prophet. All the miracles show – assuming they are genuine – is that he has certain powers. It has nothing to do with his claim of prophecy.

Judaism, unique among all of the world’s major religions, does not rely on “claims of miracles” as the basis for its religion. In fact, the Bible says that God sometimes grants the power of “miracles” to charlatans, in order to test Jewish loyalty to the Torah (Deut. 13:4).

Of the thousands of religions in human history, only Judaism bases its belief on national revelation – i.e. God speaking to the entire nation. If God is going to start a religion, it makes sense He’ll tell everyone, not just one person.

Maimonides states (Foundations of Torah, ch. 8):

The Jews did not believe in Moses, our teacher, because of the miracles he performed. Whenever anyone’s belief is based on seeing miracles, he has lingering doubts, because it is possible the miracles were performed through magic or sorcery. All of the miracles performed by Moses in the desert were because they were necessary, and not as proof of his prophecy.

What then was the basis of [Jewish] belief? The Revelation at Mount Sinai, which we saw with our own eyes and heard with our own ears, not dependent on the testimony of others… as it says, “Face to face, God spoke with you…” The Torah also states: “God did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us – who are all here alive today.” (Deut. 5:3)

Judaism is not miracles. It is the personal eyewitness experience of every man, woman and child, standing at Mount Sinai 3,300 years ago.

Further reading: “Did God Speak at Mount Sinai?”

Waiting for the Messiah

The world is in desperate need of Messianic redemption. To the extent that we are aware of the problems of society, is the extent we will yearn for redemption. As the Talmud says, one of the first questions asked of a Jew on Judgment Day is: “Did you yearn for the arrival of the Messiah?”

How can we hasten the coming of the Messiah? The best way is to love all humanity generously, to keep the mitzvot of the Torah (as best we can), and to encourage others to do so as well.

Despite the gloom, the world does seem headed toward redemption. One apparent sign is that the Jewish people have returned to the Land of Israel and made it bloom again. Additionally, a major movement is afoot of young Jews returning to Torah tradition.

The Messiah can come any day, and it all depends on our actions. God is ready when we are. For as King David says: “Redemption will come today – if you hearken to His voice.”

Lastly, if ever that after discussing it yet nothing is resolved regarding this issue. If we cannot resolve if Jesus is messiah or not. If by a fraction of misinterpretation, nothing is resolved through biblical evidence, prophecy and historicity. There is still one way for you to believe Jesus is messiah that is through supernatural means termed as calling i emphasized early on. However faithful you’re to Judaism, if god calls you in the christian faith, rest assured you will believe Jesus is the messiah as i reiterated, evidence is not primary, the calling is.

May you be called to this faith.

LOGIC SAYS, ISLAM IS TERRORISM

There is no ayat which directly says that Islam is terrorism, on the other hand many ayats supports logic or reason to say Islam is terrorism. Logic or reason is an integral part of Islam so its best that we utilize this aspect in making our conclusion as a Muslim site confirms:

Muslim scholars throughout history have undertaken the challenge of reconciling reason (aql) and revelation (naql), the divine scripture with the findings of natural law and science. The health and well-being of Muslim societies depends upon the proper balance of religion and science such that these two great bodies of knowledge and truth perform their necessary social functions in harmony with each other.

Ibn Taymiyyah writes:

الْعَقْلُ شَرْطٌ فِي مَعْرِفَةِ الْعُلُومِ وَكَمَالِ وَصَلَاحِ الْأَعْمَالِ وَبِهِ يَكْمُلُ الْعِلْمُ وَالْعَمَلُ لَكِنَّهُ لَيْسَ مُسْتَقِلًّا بِذَلِكَ بَلْ هُوَ غَرِيزَةٌ فِي النَّفْسِ وَقُوَّةٌ فِيهَا بِمَنْزِلَةِ قُوَّةِ الْبَصَرِ الَّتِي فِي الْعَيْنِ فَإِنْ اتَّصَلَ بِهِ نُورُ الْإِيمَانِ وَالْقُرْآنِ كَانَ كَنُورِ الْعَيْنِ إذَا اتَّصَلَ بِهِ نُورُ الشَّمْسِ وَالنَّارِ وَإِنْ انْفَرَدَ بِنَفْسِهِ لَمْ يُبْصِرْ الْأُمُورَ الَّتِي يَعْجِزُ وَحْدَهُ عَنْ دَرْكِهَا … فَالْأَحْوَالُ الْحَاصِلَةُ مَعَ عَدَمِ الْعَقْلِ نَاقِصَةٌ وَالْأَقْوَالُ الْمُخَالِفَةُ لِلْعَقْلِ بَاطِلَةٌ

Reason is a requirement for acquiring knowledge and performing righteous deeds, through which knowledge and deeds are perfected, but it is not enough on its own. Rather, it is a faculty of the soul and an ability like the ability within the eye to see. If it is connected with the light of faith and the Quran, then it is like the eye receiving the light of the sun and torch. If it is left to itself, it cannot gain insight into matters that it cannot know alone… Thus, the circumstances resulting from the denial of reason are defective, and ideas that contradict reason are false.

And he also writes:

مَا جَاءَ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كُلُّهُ حَقٌّ يُصَدِّقُ بَعْضُهُ بَعْضًا وَهُوَ مُوَافِقٌ لِفِطْرَةِ الْخَلَائِقِ وَمَا جُعِلَ فِيهِمْ مِنْ الْعُقُولِ الصَّرِيحَةِ والقصود الصَّحِيحَة لَا يُخَالِفُ الْعَقْلَ الصَّرِيحَ وَلَا الْقَصْدَ الصَّحِيحَ وَلَا الْفِطْرَةَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَةَ وَلَا النَّقْلَ الصَّحِيحَ الثَّابِتَ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

Every reliable narration from the Prophet is the truth and confirms one another. It agrees with the natural instinct of creatures, sound reason that has been placed within them, and noble purposes. It cannot contradict sound reason, nor a noble purpose, nor an upright instinct, nor an authentic and established revelation from the Prophet.

Source: Majmūʻ al-Fatāwá 6/580

Indeed, one of the trustworthy methods by which a narration falsely or mistakenly ascribed to the Prophet can be recognized is whether or not it contradicts sound reason.

Ibn Al-Jawzi writes:

إِذَا رَأَيْتَ الْحَدِيثَ يُبَايِنُ الْمَعْقُولَ أَوْ يُخَالِفُ الْمَنْقُولَ أَوْ يُنَاقِضُ الْأُصُولَ فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّهُ مَوْضُوعٌ

If you find a prophetic narration disagreeing with sound reason, contradicting established revelation, or conflicting with the principles, then know that it is inauthentic.

Conversely, Allah has blamed those who forsake the use of their God-given reason. Irrationality is the characteristic of unbelief, idolatry, and hypocrisy, as the betrayal of reason hinders the ability of people to recognize the value of religion or causes them to cynically abuse religion for some worldly purpose.

Allah said:

وَإِذَا نَادَيْتُمْ إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ اتَّخَذُوهَا هُزُوًا وَلَعِبًا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لَّا يَعْقِلُونَ

When you call to prayer, they take it in ridicule and amusement. That is because they are people who will not reason.

Surat Al-Ma’idah 5:58

And Allah said:

أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَابَ ۚ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ

Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture? Then will you not reason?

Surat Al-Baqarah 2:44

You have to accustom first yourself with how I concluded that Islam is terrorism. Please read this blog first for the premise of this conclusion:

Now for the logical concept, let me pose these questions?

  • ALL REVELATION IS IN THE FULLY DETAILED QURAN. MUHAMMAD MUST ACT ONLY THROUGH THE REVELATION. THE QUESTION IS, WHERE IN QURAN IS THE REVELATION TO KILL BY ANOTHER MAN’S VERDICT OR TO KILL ADOLESCENTS WITH PUBIC HAIRS AND SPARE THOSE THAT HAVE NONE THAT MUHAMMAD DID WITH BANU QURAISHA?
  • QURAN IS COMPLETE IN TRUTH AND FULLY DETAILED. SOMEHOW, IT MUST HAVE ACCOUNTS OF IT. 
  • IT HAS NONE THUS ITS MURDER, AN UNLAWFUL KILLING, A TRANSGRESSION AGAINST ALLAH THAT MUHAMMAD MUST ACT ONLY THROUGH THE REVELATION BUT HE VIOLATED IT. 
  • I follow nothing, except what is revealed to me. Truly I fear, if I should rebel against my Lord, the chastisement of a dreadful day.’ S. 10:15 Arberry
  • MUHAMMAD DID THINGS AGAINST ALLAH BY DOING THINGS OUTSIDE THE REVELATION WHEN HE COMMITTED MURDER. DESPITE THIS, ALLAH CONSIDERED IT A GOOD THING BY SAYING, MUHAMMAD IS A PATTERN OF CONDUCT. THE QUESTION IS, IF YOU ARE A TRANSGRESSOR, ARE YOU NOT PRONE TO TRANSGRESS IN ALL ASPECT OF THE LAW?
  • OF COURSE, YOU ARE, RIGHT? BEC ONCE MUHAMMAD DID AND YET ALLAH SAID ITS GOOD BY MAKING MUHAMMAD A PATTERN OF CONDUCT. THEN THAT MEANS YOU CAN KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE AS A MEANS OF TRANSGRESSION BEC A TRANSGRESSOR IN ONE RULING IS A TRANSGRESSOR IN ALL RULING, AS IMPLIED, TRANSGRESSION IS GOOD ACCDG TO ALLAH BY MAKING MUHAMMAD’S TRANSGRESSION AS A PATTERN OF CONDUCT. WHAT DID HE VIOLATE? THIS: THAT ALL RULING MUST BE IN QURAN YET THE KILLING OF BANU QURAISHA BY A JEW’S VERDICT IS NOT IN QURAN. THEREFORE, LEADERS CAN DO THINGS OUTSIDE OF QURAN SUCH AS MURDER LOGICALLY INCLUDING KILLING OF INNOCENT PEOPLE AS A FORM OF VIOLATION AS IT IS LAWFUL TO VIOLATE.
  •  THE QUESTION IS, WHO IS INNOCENT IN ISLAM?
  • THE ANSWER MUST BE BASED ON THE MURDER OF THOSE WITH PUBIC HAIR. IT WAS BY THE LEADER THAT PRESUMED THE GUILT OF THE ADOLESCENT WARRIORS AND SPARED NON-PUBIC HAIRED BOYS, MEANING, IT WAS BY PRESUMPTION THAT INNOCENCE IS ESTABLISHED. SO THE LEADER DECIDES WHO ARE INNOCENT. THE LEADER BASED HIS JUDGMENT ON PERSONAL DECISION AS KILLING OF ADOLESCENTS WITH PUBIC HAIRS IS NOT FOUND IN THE QURAN. 

Now for the logical conclusion, what is Islam? Based on the aforementioned Q & A, it is conclusive to say, Islam is killing people through transgression of the law, including innocent people if by the leader’s decision, they are not innocent bec it is an Islamic principle that transgression of the law is a good thing as exemplified by Muhammad’s murder of Banu Quraisha.

That as by the ruling of logic.

IS THAT NOT CONSTRUING TERRORISM?
