Prophet Moses in Islam :









Here’s the story of Professor Maurice with Pharaoh Ramesses (Firaun).

Prof: Maurice Bucaille.
Prof: Maurice Bucaille.
When François Mitterrand became the president of France in 1981. France requested from the Egyptian government to host the mummy of Pharaoh. For the purpose of running laboratory and archeological examinations on the mummy of the most notorious dictator ever lived on earth. Upon arrival, a very royal attendants were there including the French president himself and all ministers who bowed in honor for the mummy.

When the ceremony ended, the mummy was carried to a specially-designedsection at the Archeology Centre of France where it started to be tested by the greatest French archeological and anatomical scientists in order to discover more about such a great mummy. The scientists were headed by Professor Maurice Bucaille. Scientists were trying to restore the mummy while Professor Maurice was mainly concerned with how did this mummy die!

The final report of the scientists was released late at night which states that the remaining salt in the mummy is an overt evidence that it was drawn in the sea, and the body was rescued very shortly where it was immediately embalmed to be saved.

An amazing thing was still confusing Professor Maurice is that how could this body possibly be safer than any other mummy despite being taken out of the sea up until this time .

Professor Maurice was writing his final report on what he thought would be a new discovery about saving Pharaoh’s body immediately after his death and embalming it. And there, someone whispered to him that Muslims claim to know something about the drowning of this mummy.

Yet the Professor firmly denied such thing saying that it’s impossible to discover this without the development of science and without using his high-tech and complicated laboratories and computers.

To his surprise, he was told that Muslims believe in a book called ‘Quran’ and this Quran narrates the story of Pharaoh’s drowning and ensures the safety of his body after his death as to be a Sign to mankind. The Professor couldn’t believe his own ears and started to wonder:

How can a book existed 1400 years ago speak about the mummy that was only found 200 years ago, in 1898??!!

How can that be possible while the ancient Egyptian heritage was discovered only a few decades ago and no one knew about it before??!!


The Professor sat down pondering on what he was told about the book of Muslims while his Holy Book narrates only the drowning of Pharaoh without saying anything about his body.

Is it possible that this mummy in front of me is the one who was chasing Moses??!! Is it possible that Muhammad knew this 1400 years ago??!!

The Professor couldn’t sleep that night till they brought him the Old Testament where he read: ‘the sea drowned Pharaoh and his army, no one else was left alive’ He was surprised that the Holy Book didn’t mention about the destiny of the body and that it will be saved *

When the scientists were done with the mummy, France retuned it to Egypt, but Professor Maurice couldn’t rest for a moment since he was told that Muslims know about the safety of the body. So, he decided to travel and meet anatomy Muslim scientists and there he spoke about his discovery of the safety of the mummy after its death in the sea and so on. *

One of the Muslim scientists stood up and simply opened the Quran and pointed to the Professor at one verse:
‘This day shall We save you in your body, that you may be a Sign to those who come after you! But verily, many among mankind are neglectful of Our Signs’(Quran 10:92)*

The Professor was struck when he read that and immediately stood in front of the crowd and said loudly:
‘I believe in Islam, I believe in Quran’.

Then he went back to France with a different face he traveled with. In France, he dedicated 10 years investigating the scientific discoveries and comparing them with the Quran and trying to come up with one scientific contradiction with the Quran. Finally he quoted one verse from the Quran to be his conclusion:

‘No falsehood can approach it (this book) from before or behind it: it is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all praise’ (Quran 41:42)

As a result of all years of his research, Professor Maurice wrote a book that shook all Europe, especially the scientists there.‘Quran, Torah, Bible and Science: A Study of the Holy Books in the Light of Modern Science’

All of a sudden, the book sold out , and even hundreds of thousands of it were translated from French to Arabic, English, Indonesian, Persian, Turkish and German, extending to include nearly all East and West bookstores; one has come to see it with any Egyptian, Moroccan or Gulf person in the US.

In another chapter in the Quran:
‘When Moses came to them with Our clear Signs, they said: This is nothingbut sorcery faked up: never did we hear the like among our fathers of old!
Moses said: My Lord knows best who it is that comes with guidance fromHim and whose end will be best in the Hereafter: certain it is that thewrong-doers will not prosper.
‘Pharaoh said:
‘O Chiefs! No god do I know for you but myself: therefore, OHaman! Light me a (kiln to bake bricks) out of clay, and build me a lofty palace, that I may mount up to the god of Moses: but as far as I am concerned, I think (Moses) is a liar!’ And he was arrogant and insolent in the land, beyond reason, – he and his hosts: they thought they would not have to return to Us!

So We seized his and his hosts, and We flung them into the sea: now behold what was the end of those who did wrong!

And We made them (but) leaders inviting to the Fire; and on the Day of Judgment no help shall they find.

In this world We made a curse to follow them: and on the Day of Judgment they will be among the loathed (and despised).’
(Quran 28: 36-42)

So now, Has not the time arrived for the Believers that their hearts in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and the Truth which has been revealed to them, and that they should not become like those to whom was given Revelation aforetime, but long ages passed over them and their hearts grew hard?

For many among them are rebellious transgressors. Know you (all) that Allah gives life to the earth after its death! Already have We shown the Signs plainly to you, that you may learn wisdom.


For those who give in charity, men and women, and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credits), and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward.And those who believe in Allah and His messengers- they are the Sincere (lovers of Truth), and the Witnesses (who testify), in the eyes of their Lord: they shall have their Reward and their Light.


But those who reject Allah and deny Our Signs,- they are the companions of Hell-Fire.’
(Quran 57: 16-19)

An open letter to Jehovah Witness :

A letter to Jehovah Witness by Rachidm: Dear Jehovah’s Witnesses:

I would like to share with you some biblical research based upon my discussions with Jehovah’s Witnesses friends.
My wife used to be a Jehovah Witness. When we got married, I, as a  Muslim told her ; "you have the right to practice your religion". I even offered to give her a ride if needed to the Kingdom hall ( Jehovah Witness place of worship ) .
 With an open mind, I supported her and told her I would never mind her practicing and preaching her religion. During our first couple years  of blessed and happy marriage together, I was privileged to engage with my parents in law (upon their request) in a comparative study between Islam and their beliefs. Although they were discouraged from dialogue since they believe their way is the only correct way, I always enjoyed a good open discussion about religion in general.
My Mom in law offered me a copy of the New World Translation  (a version of the bible exclus…

THE DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN

Greetings of peace,

This post is an answer to a new friend whom I recently met and respect , a devout Christian  passionate about sharing his religion with others , who challenged me to provide some proofs regarding why Muslims don't accept the doctrine of  original sin; a doctrine ( including the concept of trinity ) that  was  added by the Church at the Council of Nicaea some 325 years after Jesus left the earth.  Notice I say left the earth ( meaning resurected alive by Allah )  and not died yet or crucify as some claims ,  but that is a topic for another day. Back to the doctrine of original sin.

Are we born with so called Original sin or born innocent ?
Is a Newly Born Baby really a Sinner? Islam Challenges The Concept of Original Sin. Let us found out why ?
let's take a look at the following passages from The Bible:

(Deuteronomy 24:16)

“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers, every man shall be pu…

Medical, Scientific and religious Reasons for not Eating Pork:

People ask me all the time, Why don't you eat pork? ...Is it for  religious reasons? ...Are you vegetarian? Are you a Muslim or a Jew  ? Do you know that pork taste good ?

Honestly, just today I was even asked for sound scientific evidence affirming the danger of eating pork. I will share a few findings with you.

Medical and Scientific Reasons for not Eating Pork:

This is a direct quote from "What the Bible Says About Healthy Eating" by Dr. Rex Russell. He attended Baylor School of Medicine in Houston, Texas and did his residency at the Mayo Clinic at Rochester, Minnesota.

Let us watch this short video , let the conversation begin:



"One reason for God's rule forbidding pork is that the digestive system of a pig is completely different from that of a cow. It is similar to ours, in that the stomach is very acidic. Pigs are gluttonous, never knowing when to stop eating. Their stomach acids become diluted because of the volume of food, allowing all kinds of vermin…

Big Sur International Marathon 2018

"The Big Sur International Marathon is a point-to-point course run on scenic California Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel the last Sunday each April every year. Towering redwoods, crashing waves, coastal mountains and verdant pastures are featured on this bucket list course. The centerpiece of the course is the iconic Bixby Bridge, located at the halfway point of the race."









After visiting the area two years ago, I knew I wanted to return and after stumbling upon the fact that this beautiful place hosts a renowned marathon, I decided it would be perfect to incorporate the race into my return trip. Little did I realize, the race is extremely popular world-wide and spots go quickly. Just when I thought it was too late, I was fortunate enough to be selected to register in a last minute drawing. Since being selected, it was a major goal for me to complete this marathon along with my 51st birthday. AlhamduAllah (Thanks to Allah), I'm happy to say that I did it and it felt great!
