What religion did Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael follow, according to you?

What was Ishmael's prophetic message? Who did he give this message to?

Abrahan was not prophet of Jews Jews did not exist as race until Juda get your fact . As for Noah he was not sent to Jews . This is what expert says about Judaism


Judaism (from the Latin Iudaismus, derived from the Greek Ioudaïsmos, and ultimately from the Hebrew יהודה, Yehudah, "Judah";[1][2] in Hebrew: יַהֲדוּת, Yahadut) is a set of beliefs and practices originating in the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Tanakh, and explored and explained in later texts such as the Talmud. Jews consider Judaism to be the expression of the covenantal relationship God developed with the Children of Israel—originally a group of around a dozen tribes claiming descent from the Biblical patriarch Jacob and later the Jewish people.[3] According to most branches, God revealed his laws and commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of both the Written and Oral Torah.[4] However, Karaite Judaism maintains that only the Written Torah was revealed,[5] and liberal movements such as Humanistic Judaism may be nontheistic.[6]

Judaism claims a historical continuity spanning well over 3000 years. It is one of the oldest monotheistic religions,[7]
we know know that Abraham is 4000 yers ago

Dear GrupoCupda,

Judaeism as a defined, established religion in the full sense of the word can be dated back to about 1400 before Christ, when the earliest bibical texts were written. So the fully developed Judaeism is indeed about 3000 years old.

However, it would be wrong to say that Judaeism started then. It did not begin out of nothing, from one day to the next. Judaeism itself tells us its story of its beginning. And it began with Abraham.

Judaeism traces its own beliefs back to the beliefs of Abraham, and it had a long history of growing and refining itself, and all the texts in the Old Testament took over 1000 years to write.

To say that Judaeism started with Judah, because of the name, is misleading. Judah did not "found" Judaeism.

Read this, you ignorant and confused bum:

وَاذْكُرْ فِي الْكِتَابِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ ۚ إِنَّهُ كَانَ صَادِقَ الْوَعْدِ وَكَانَ رَسُولًا نَبِيًّا (54)
And remember in the book Ismail; indeed, he was truthful in (his) promise, and he was a messenger, a prophet.
[Al Quran ; 19:54]

-> See you stupid, Ismael is mentioned as being A MESSENGER AND A NABI: وَكَانَ رَسُولًا نَبِيًّا, i.e. and he was a messenger, a prophet.

UNLIKE Ishaq and Yaqoub, they were only mentioned as NABI, and not messengers:

فَلَمَّا اعْتَزَلَهُمْ وَمَا يَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ وَهَبْنَا لَهُ إِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ ۖ وَكُلًّا جَعَلْنَا نَبِيًّا (49)
So when he withdrew from them and from what they worship other than Allah, We gave him Ishaq and Yaqoub, and each of them We made a prophet.
[Al Quran ; 19:49]

-> See dumby, what the verse says about both Ishaq and Yaqoub: وَكُلًّا جَعَلْنَا نَبِيًّا, i.e. and each of them We made a prophet.

I.e. from the perspective of Allah, Ismael has more of a mission as messenger and a prophet of Allah than both Ishaq and Yaqoub who were not messengers but were only prophets.

Noah wasn't 'sent' to anyone, there was nobody left for godsake! He, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are the embodiment of Judaism,
to which Moses came back much later. They were the 'living laws' of Israel, based on the Noachide Covenant, way before Islam.

Judah at the beginning of a 'race' is laughing stock. Please tell me with whom did they 'race' with? :ermm:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_genetics" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Human to human total genetic variation is approximately 0.5%. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are single base-pair DNA differences accounting for 0.1% variation. Of this 0.1% difference, 85% is found within any given population, 7% is found between populations within a continent and only 8% is found on average between the various continental populations.
Judaism per se isn't a race, no more than Islam or Christianity are races. It's a religion embraced by many different peoples,
especially since the Diaspora. One may be an ethnic Jew without embracing Judaism, another may be professing Judaism
without being an ethnic Jew. But the becoming of Juda as a state has nothing to do with both. Get your own fact straightened!
An ethnic must primarily be associated with cultures, not with race. One can be of Italian ethnicity, but not of the Italian race!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_group" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Now, according to the Koran itself, the line of prophethood and of -scriptures- is going from Noah to Abraham (Q.57.26), then
from Abraham to Isaac and Jacob (Q.29.27) and bani Israel (19:58): These are they unto whom Allah showed favour from among
the prophets, of the seed of Adam and of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Noah, and of the seed of Abraham and Israel.

Bani Israel means the whole Israelite people.

Isaac is mentioned many times as a child born from divine intervention, like Adam and Jesus.
But I ask: where is it stated in the Koran that Ishmael was from the rightful seed of Abraham?


Al-Tabari, looking upon the historicity of the debate, stated: "Only the Quran could serve as proof that the account naming Isaac
is clearly the more truthful of the two.
(Annals V2: p. 82). The Book does not mention any tidings of a male child given to
Abraham except in the instance where it refers to Isaac
, in which God said, ‘And his wife, standing by laughed when we gave her
tidings of Isaac, and after Isaac, Jacob’, and ‘Then he became fearful of them’. They said. ‘Fear not!’ and gave him tidings of a
wise son. Then his wife approached, moaning, and smote her face, and cried, ‘A barren old woman’. Thus, wherever the Quran
mentions God giving tidings of the birth of a son to Abraham, it refers to Sarah (and thus to Isaac) and the same must be true of
God's words ‘So we gave him tidings of a gentle son’, as it is true of all such references in the Quran.
" (Ibid., p. 89).
--Quoting some verses from Q.37.100-113.

This is what you included in your post:

Here you are, telling others how stupid you are, and you cannot remember what you wrote, and you cannot spell the name right, either: Judah,not Juda, in fact Yahuda would be better.

Let me make my point simpler: Those who are today often referred to as Jews where better known as the Israelites in ancient times, and they say that Abraham is their ancestor and the man who established the beginnings of their religion.

If you want to call Abraham a prophet (which is not accurate either) then the people he had the most influence on were those who later became known as the Israelites, and later still as the Jews. The people did not change, just the terminology.

You are saying that Abraham who lived 4000 years ago founded Judaism while I showed you that Judaism is only 3000 years old so stupid there is 1000 years between Judaism and Abraham. How could Abraham have founded a religion which would exist 1000 years later . Judaism has more to do with Moses who was the author of Torah and with Talmud written after Moses death .

1. Who do you think the Torah is talking about in its first book, between chapters 11 and 24?

2. By your logic, Islam must have nothing to do with Abraham either, being born millenias later!

3. Where do you think that the expression 'Abrahamic' (or Semitic) religions comes from?

These are dictonaries of ENGLISH etymology...
Do you think the authors know Arabic or just copied it from other authors ?

I presume you do not speak Arabic because if that was the case you would show me evidence from Arabic dictionaries and lexicons...
Allah means God, a generic, like in the Bismillah: In the name of God. If Muslims insist on it being a proper name, then it must be
understood solely as 'the god mentioned in the Koran' with no affiliation with any other ones from the Bible, contrary to Koran 29.46!
Whatever the origin of the word "Allah," it then no longer carries a neutral connotation as a general word "God." As such, it would be
inappropriate to use it for any deity except the god of the Quran. It truly becomes ''The idol of the Muhammadans''!
Why not...If Allah is Al ilah then the shahada means just There is no God but the God...What is wrong with that ?

Check my thread "99 names of Allah" and see how manipulative wikipedia is...when it comes to islam it is rather dawahpedia...
Galatians 1:7-8
But there are some who trouble (agitate) you, and they would pervert the good news of Christ.
If we or an angel from heaven should preach to you any message other than that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.

Etymology is the study of the history of words and how their form and meaning have changed over time. For languages with a long written history, etymologists make use of texts in these languages, and texts about the languages, to gather knowledge about how words were used at earlier stages, and when they entered the languages in question. Etymologists also apply the methods of comparative linguistics to reconstruct information about languages that are too old for any direct information to be available. By analyzing related languages with a technique known as the comparative method, linguists can make inferences about their shared parent language and its vocabulary.....
So to state that an English etymological dictionary is confined to 'English' words is silly as can be.
Many English words can be traced back to Greek, Latin, French or even Arabic (ex. algebra).
When it got into the English usage, etymologists had to traced its particular background.

There are NO Arabic etymological dictionaries. Muslims are way too afraid of the truth for that.
Muslims like to say that Allah is a proper name, doing so they shrink Him to a mere Arabic idol.
But the Turkish people, Muslims too, use 'Tengri' or 'Tanri' interchangeably with Allah, as God...

Allah (God with a capital) is a contraction of Al-Ilah (The God) which, again, refers to the Akkadian
