CHAPTER 2 “AQEEDAH” IS PLAGIARISED FROM THE HEBREW BIBLE
CHAPTER 2 “AQEEDAH” IS PLAGIARISED FROM THE HEBREW BIBLE
The head covering for women (hijaab) that is practiced by the Sunnis and Shiahs is an idea that is stolen from the Christian Bible. This hijaab idea is NOT Islamic and it is definitely not from the Quran and the Prophet.
We will see proof in this book that the Shariah Laws in the Sharia system of the Sunnis is plagiarized from the Christian Bible. It is NOT from Islam or the Quran which was taught by the Prophet. The Sunni beliefs like the punishment of death for the apostates is also an evil idea stolen from the Christian Bible. For starters I would like to talk about one more Sunni idea that is actually a plagiarism from the Christian Bible. This is the Ahlul Sunnah concept of ‘Aqeedah’.
As we discuss these things I would like to keep reminding the reader that the Ahlul Sunnah and the Shiah are actually practicing Christians. They are giving life to the Christian Biblical teachings which they have been fooled into believing is part of their religion of Ahlul Sunnah and Shiah.
In the Sunni religion the concept of “aqeedah” is very important (hebrew : aqeedah, arabic : also aqeedah). The following definition of aqeedah is taken from the ISLAMIC DA`WAH NET at this location :
“Therefore al-aqeedah according to the scholars of Islam is : the firm creed that one's heart is fixed upon without any wavering or doubt. It excludes any supposition, doubt or suspicion.”
In fact it is a major concern for the Sunnies that their ‘aqeedah’ or religious creed be on the right track. They are always concerned that ‘aqeedah’ can be deviated or crooked, especially if it is the ‘aqeedah’ of their neighbours. They like to be ‘holier than thou’. They always like to judge their neighbours’ aqeedah.
For example in the never ending struggle between the Shiah and the Ahlul Sunnah cults, the Ahlul Sunnah say that although they may have outward similarities with the Shiahs (for example they both dress up like the Thief of Baghdad) but their aqeedah differs in that the core of their beliefs are different. This gives them an excuse to kill each other.
Other more pliant Sunnies say the exact opposite – they say that although they may have differences between their cults, the Shias and the Sunnis actually share the same aqeedah.
The truth is that this word ‘aqeedah’, which is a source of so much holier than thou persecution inside the Ahlul Sunnah cults, can never be found in the Quran to signify religious faith, religious belief, religious creed etc. In the Quran God and the Prophet never taught us anything about ‘aqeedah’ as referring to "religious faith". The Quran only refers to faith or 'iman' (arabic : eeman). The truth is this word ‘aqeedah’ is not even found in the Quran. There is occurrence of derivatives like ‘uqdah’ referring to ‘the knot of marriage’ (2:235) or ‘aqada’ referring to upholding the proper sharing of inheritances (4:33) but there is no such word as ‘aqeedah’ in the Quran and neither is there any reference of aqeedah as religious creed or binding faith in the Quran.
In their vain attempt to cover up their plagiarizing the concept of aqeedah as ‘binding faith’ from the Bible, some Sunnis try to say that ‘aqeedah’ is found in the Quran. They fail miserably to prove this point. Here is one argument from the Sunnis :
“Al-Aqeedah linguistically is derived from the term aqada. In Arabic, one states, "Aqada the rope" when the rope is tied firmly. And, "Aqada the sale" or "He settled the sale" when the person ratifies and contracts a sale or agreement. And Allah says in the Quran, "And as for those whom your right hands have made a covenant (Ar., aqadat)" [Al-Nisa 33]. And Allah also says, "But He will take you to task for the oaths which you swear in earnest (Ar., aqadtum) [Al-Maida, 89] which means asserted and adhered to, as proven in the verse, "And break not oaths after the assertion of them" [An-Nahl, 91].
In truth none of these verses they refer to above have anything at all to do with the concept of ‘the firm creed that one's heart is fixed upon without any wavering or doubt’. Each of the verses referred to above carries its own meaning that has nothing to do with the fabricated concept of aqeedah. These are the belatedly lame explanations by the Sunni ulema that have popped up to fill in the yawning gaps in their arguments.
Where does this Sunni idea as well as the word ‘aqeedah’ come from ? Would anyone like to guess ? It comes from the Christian Bible, in this case the Hebrew language Bible. It is NOT found in the Quran. Aqeedah is also a Hebrew word.
The Oxford Companion to the Bible talks about 'aqeedah' on page 43.
"Aqedah: The Hebrew word for 'binding', and the common designation for Genesis 22:1 - 19 in which God tests Abraham by commanding that he sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham "binds" Isaac (verse 9)."
“The New Testament refers to the aqedah not as an example of a redemptive sacrificial death but rather as an example of “FAITH". See the following verses:
[Jas 2:21] Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar?
[Heb 11:17] By FAITH Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was ready to offer up his only son,
[Rom 4:16] That is why it depends on FAITH, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants-- not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, for he is the father of us all,”
The Oxford Companion to the Bible also says that "From antiquity the AQEDAH has been portrayed in the arts. For example it appears on a wall painting of the third century CE SYNAGOGUE at Dura-Europos and on a floor mosaic of the sixth century SYNAGOGUE at Beth Alpha."
Long before any Sunni thought of ‘aqeedah’ as ‘the firm creed that one’s heart is fixed upon’ the Jews and Christians had already drawn paintings and illustrations about aqeedah or ‘binding faith’ in the Third Century and the Sixth Century.
The Prophet is believed to have existed around the Seventh century (so they say). The cult or madhab of Ahlul Sunnah did not come into existence until about the Tenth century. The Sunni ideas about aqeedah were not written down until later. So the Christians had a seven hundred year head start talking about ‘aqeedah’.
Again the Bible is the real source of the ‘aqeedah’ or religious creed of the Ahlul Sunnah and Shiah. They have plagiarized their religious creed from the Christian Bible. There is not one thing they do which is from the Quran. The Ahlul Sunnah and Shiah are actually good Christians.
