The Coming Of The Teaching Of Islam (Surrendering
And Submission) For Furthering The Course Of Humanity History (His
Story) Was Part Of The Promise Given To Abram (Abraham)
God promised Abram and
his seed many things. The son of Abram was Ishmael, the son of
Hagar. Ishmael is the father of the Arabs.
changed his name from Abram (A-Bram) to Abraham and gave him new
promises for his seed. He then begot Isaac from his wife
significance of the name change from Abram to Abraham, and the
difference between the two promises given to Abram and his
seed, and to Abraham and his seed, is very important for
understanding the great mystery of the historical events that took
place later on. Without knowing this, a great truth will be
lost and we will not be able to see how the promises He had given to
Abram and Abraham were fulfilled.
Also, in the
promises He gave to Abram and Abraham, there were two aspects in
each promise: (1) the birthright or territorial possession, and (2)
the spiritual kingly promise (scepter). Then the Bible
continues with the promises that were given to Abraham for his seed
So, Isaac and
Ishmael both received the blessing, the birthright, and the scepter.
And both of them were eventually fulfilled.
Genesis 49:10, it states:
shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people
This is a great prophecy which has been ignored by many and is the
very key in understanding most of the events which had happened
throughout the past several thousand years.
This means that the Messiah or spiritual king should come from the
tribe of Judah, and the lawgiving and its enforcement would be by
this tribe. However, this promise is not forever, but only
“until Shiloh come”.
coming of Esa the Christ (“Shiloh”), the kingly spiritual being
promised to Abraham was finished, and as Esa prophesied, “The
kingdom of God shall be taken from” Judah and instead given to
another nation (Matthew 21:43). Therefore, the scepter and the
lawgiving were removed from the tribe of Judah and given to another
This other nation was the Arabs. The spiritual kingly
personality was Muhammad. The spiritual truth and laws were
Islam and the Koran.
With this, another prophecy was fulfilled, and also history is the
witness of this truth that God promised would happen.
Furthermore, nothing happens without His Will. So, if a person
would be able to establish a new great religion, it has been His
Will, even if some people do not understand or do not like it.
Also, as we can see
historically, the promises given to Ishmael, the father of the
Arabs, have come true. Arabs are a great nation with a great
see that even Abraham did not understand the promises God was giving
to him and his sons, because when God said, “I am going to give you
a child by the name of Isaac,” Abraham said, “Can’t this blessing be
upon Ishmael?” He did not believe he would have another child
because he was ninety-nine years old and his wife ninety years old.
He said, “What are you talking about, God? I cannot have a
child. It is too late for me” [laughing]. So, he said,
“God, can you give that blessing also to Ishmael? I know that
I am not going to have another child.”
But God said, “No, I am going to give you a child.” Even
though Abraham did not understand it, God said, “I have already
blessed Ishmael.” In the Bible, it shows that when He
gave the first promises to Abram, they were for Ishmael. Then
later on He said, “Now your name is Abraham, your wife’s name is no
longer Sarai, it is Sarah, and I am going to give you a child who
you will name Isaac, and this blessing is now for Isaac.”
Abram (Abraham) is known
as the submissive one, the one who was completely surrendered and
submissive to the Will of God. He had left his family and
obeyed God, even when God said, “Take your child and sacrifice him
for Me.” Abraham said, “OK, fine, if that is Your Will, I will
do that.” So, you can see how submissive he was, compared to
our submission to the Will of God. Of course, that does not
mean that He is going to ask everyone to do that. But that shows how
submissive Abraham was.
Because Abram (Abraham) followed the Will of God, God blessed him.
When you obey God, the blessing becomes an unconditional blessing.
That is why God said, “Forever this blessing is going to be upon
you, that all nations are going to be blessed by you. Whoever
blesses you will be blessed,” and all that, which has been given him
in the Bible.
can see that there were two promises for two children. As we
said, one child was the first child of Abram, and he was Ishmael.
We can also find this in the Koran. The same thing was
revealed to Prophet Muhammad that, “We will make a nation out of you
and a Messenger will come out of thee.” Exactly the same
promise, isn’t it, that he is going to be a nation?
Actually, after I wrote down this revelation about the two sons of
Abram (Abraham), I found this in the Koran. After I
wrote this down, later on, one day I was reading the Koran
and I said, “Hey, look, it is even in the Koran.”
That it exactly what it says, “A nation is going to come out of you
and a Prophet will guide them.” Again, the nation is the
material blessing and the Prophet is the Messiah, or the spiritual
blessing or the scepter.
We can see that even the Koran confirms that God has already
promised Ishmael that such things were going to come to him.
So, the blessing which was given to Abram was for Ishmael and his
So, the birthright or territorial possession was given to the
children of Ishmael, or the Arabs. The Arabs are a nation,
aren’t they? They are from Saudi Arabia to Jordan, to part of
Israel, Egypt, all of North Africa, all the way to Spain.
when they came to Spain, they mingled with the Spanish population,
and after two hundreds years they have created a lot of children.
Who are the rest of the people in Spain? They are the Spanish
people. And where are the Spanish people? Most of the
Spanish people are in South America. We even have a lot of
them here in the United States.
We can see they really are like the number of the stars. Can
you count all the Arabs in North Africa, Asia, and South America?
Christians and Jews realize this, that God already promised also
there was going to be a Prophet through Ishmael and he came through
Prophet Muhammad, we already have three religions unified, don’t we?
Judaism and Christianity are pretty close. Actually they are
both the children of Isaac. And Islam is from the children of
Islam is one of the
accepted world religions, and a great part of humanity has been
blessed through it. So, denying its validity and that it has
been the work of God for fulfilling the promises given to Abram for
his seed Ishmael is just like denying the sun on a sunny day.
This truth (promise of
spiritual blessing for Ishmael) either had been lost from the
through the turbulent history of the Hebrews, or the book was
changed, and that part which told of a Prophet also coming from the
seed of Ishmael was taken out of the Old Testament.
Both of these explanations are possible because we know that the
Bible was written around 500 B.C., and the book was completely
lost after the captivity of the Jews. It was revealed again in
the Koran, “They say it is from Allah what they have written
by their own hands. Woe be unto them!” (Surah The Cow, 79).
The point is that the
promise of material possession (the birthright) and the spiritual
blessing (the scepter) were both also given to Ishmael. Not
accepting this is to miss a great part of The Plan of the Lord.
Any time any new
religion comes, any new revelation comes, it unifies every religion
before it. It is just like when Christ came, he tried to unify
the Jews and Gentiles. He said, “There is no difference
between Jews and Gentiles. They are all the children of God.
They are all created by Him so there is no difference between them.”
Then Prophet Muhammad came and said. “We are the children of the
book and we all came from Abraham. There is no difference
between us. Let us not argue, let us be unified.”
Baha’i came and said, “Everything is universal. There is no
difference between our religions.” Basically, they all said
the same thing about unifying.
Now we come and we put everything together, Hinduism, Buddhism, all
the Mystical Paths, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Baha’i, etc., and
say, “There is no difference between you. Everything is from
God and each of these revelations has a part of the Eternal
Divine Path. So, let us be unified.”
See, Prophets do not come to separate human from human. Who
separates human from human? Humans themselves.
Prophet Muhammad is the
(“the last”) of the Prophets in the sense of spiritual
understanding. That is why Prophets or Messengers after Islam
did not bring any higher spiritual truths than what had already been
revealed to humanity. But new understandings were necessary to
complete The Greatest Sign.
Also, with the coming of Christ and Prophet Muhammad, the promises
given to Abram or Abraham about his seed Ishmael and Isaac (that the
nations of the earth would be blessed through them) were fulfilled.
That is why the next Prophet (Baha'i) did not come from the Children
of Abram but from people who geographically were close to them.
He came from Persia which had a long relationship with both Arabs
With fulfillment of all
the promises God had given to Abram’s and Abraham’s seed, which were
explained, He is no longer obligated to any special people.
Now humans once more are equal. All these historical events
have happened according to the Scriptures, to make men again
understand that they are not left alone in this world with no one
looking after them, or that they can do whatever they want to, or
that they can choose their ways as they please.
Now it is time for the
human to see the limits of his intellect and understandings, then
surrender himself to God and the words revealed through His
Prophets, and overcome the confusion between them by understanding
The Greatest Sign. Then the glory of God will be realized
and His Kingdom will come on earth as it is in heaven.
