as far as i know, they weren't. been a while since i've read the pentateuch, so i can't be sure.
the covenant with Israel was highly national - the Mosaic Law was the law of the children of Israel.
"And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel. // And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments."
Shin-Lamedh-Mem is the triconsonantal root of many Semitic words, and many of those words are used as names. The root itself translates as "whole, safe, intact".
Arabic ' (), Maltese Sliem, Hebrew Shalom (), Ge'ez sälam (ሰላም), Syriac šlama (pronounced Shlama, or Shlomo in the Western Syriac dialect) () are cognate Semitic terms for "peace", deriving from a Proto-Semitic '.
The word salām is used in a variety of expressions and contexts in Arabic and Islamic speech and writing. "Al-Salam" is one of the 99 names of God in Islam, and also a mal...
I am sure its there but cant find the exact location
False friends are pairs of words or phrases in two languages or dialects (or letters in two alphabets) that look or sound similar, but differ significantly in meaning. An example is the English embarrassed and the Spanish embarazado, which does not in fact mean "embarrassed" but rather "pregnant".
Often, there is a partial overlap in meanings, which creates additional complications: e.g. Spanish lima, meaning "lime" (the fruit) and "lime" (the calcium-based material), but also "file" (the tool). Only when lima is used to mean a file does it become a false friend to the English "lime"....
Wanted to know how the word "Jew" or "Yehudim" came to be used for people following prophet Moshe in the Torah, did he coin the term and does it bear a geographic relevance? And if Moshe did not call himself a Jew then what he described himself and his followers in the Torah?
Update(On why it is...
Allah had chosen them , Now they are not but now only Islam remains the only perfected, and complete religion for entire mankind
My hypothesis quoted earlier @El'endiaStarman
So what my hypothesis is that the word "Mushalam" had to be present in previous scriptures as it gives an idea about "One who Submits to Allah(Al-Salam)" and we know this idea existed since Adam Muslim= Mu+SLM MUSHALAM= Mu+SLM AND jESUS said: Not my will but only God's Will shall be done (John) which is nothing but submitting your will to God ALONE
Ah, I see. Well, linguistically, I know very, very little about ancient Biblical languages, so I can't speak to that effect. Theologically, do remember that I don't believe that Islam existed until the sixth to seventh century, so the idea that Islam predates Christianity, let alone Judaism, seems silly to me.
Prophet Muhammad was NOT a founder, but a MESSENGER of Islam
The founder of Islam is actually Allah Almighty. Allah chose Muhammad (pbuh) to be the final Prophet sent to this world to give both a warning and glad tidings.
@El'endiaStarman The word "islam" can be translated as "surrender/submission" (to God). A "muslim" can be translated as "one who surrenders/submits" (to God).
According to The Quran, everything in the universe, willingly or unwillingly has ultimately surrendered to God, thus the basic concept of islam/surrender/submission is as old as the universe itself:
Do they seek other than the system of God, when all things in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly have surrendered to Him, and to Him they will be returned. [3:83]
Say: "We believe in God and what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make any distinction between any of them, and to Him do we submit. [3:84]
And Muhammad is no more than a messenger; the messengers have already passed away before him; if then he dies or is killed will you turn back upon your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, he will by no means do harm to God in the least and God will reward the grateful. [3:144]
A very important point here @El'endiaStarman @goldPseudo , The Quran specifically mentions the term "muslim" for those before prophet Muhammad, including: Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, and the companions of Jesus. [see 2:128, 2:131, 3:67, 3:52, 5:111, 10:72]. Thus, the prophet Muhammad was not the founder of islam/submission, but simply continued this universal message as one of many messengers of God.
Firstly Quran was and is present in the Heavens in Lauh Al Mahfuz even before the creation. It was revealed in piece wise fashion. And Muhamad pbuh was an illiterate shepherd who couldnt have the ability to retconn
Muhammad pbuh is just the last prophet in a long chain of prophets..
The Quran specifically mentions the term "muslim" for those before prophet Muhammad, including: Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, and the companions of Jesus. [see 2:128, 2:131, 3:67, 3:52, 5:111, 10:72].
@AlUmmat Very good question because the same objection has been leveled against both, especially the Injeel. I have seen arguments that details like Jesus' death and resurrection were retconned into the story some time after His death. The main counter is that the Injeel was written within a century of Jesus' death, and there were still many surviving witnesses to confirm or deny the claims.
Websites like eToro offer services where you can buy and sell currencies, commodities(gold, silver, oil, etc.) and indices(SPX500, NSDQ100, DJ30, UK100, FRA40, GER30, etc).
It's basically an online trading platform. The way it works is that, for example, you buy gold or euro at a price from the...
i've not really looked into the mechanics of forex, but fundamentally there's nothing wrong with trading an amount of one currency for an amount of another currency (and then trading it back later for a profit).
@devWaleed You can take the Story of the people of Loot (لوط) as example, they were destroyed because they refused to take women, in other words they were homosexual, hence they were destroyed because of this
@Noah that page pretty much confirms what i said; "Immediate buying and selling without delay" (i.e. no margin trading). the "Islamic online trading" account only appears to eliminate interest, it's still your own responsibility to make sure any individual transaction is valid.
if the mecahnics of margin trading involves an actual transfer of currencies to your account before selling them, then it's valid as far as I know (which it looks like they do)
@devWaleed today people and things, the earth, the atmosphere, is being destroyed because People (scientists) think they are God, hence they start meddling in things without knowledge or considering the consequences. that isn't the only reasons why destruction is spreading, but just one
because at that point, it's clearly a loan of currency; you're borrowing x dollars of a currency, and you repay x dollars of that same currency later (regardless of how much the value of the currency fluctuates in the interim)
People in the beginning thought that Lunar Eclipse occurs due to some dark devil and started to worship Moon, But the science proved that its just a Lunar Eclipse, Similarly, If we think creating a planet is impossible, its just because we don't have enough data, in future we might be able to create a planet or Galaxy! and Yes of course on Allah's will!
@devWaleed see this verse from the Quran "O ye assembly of Jinns and men! if it be ye can pass beyond the zones of the heavens and the earth, pass ye! Not without authority shall ye be able to pass!" Surat Arrahman Ayah 33
