Rabbi “Šim‘on ben Yohai” and Prediction of Prophet Muhammad !

Prophet, Muĥammad, who had come to confirm the revelations already received, whom the jews were eagerly awaiting and about whom they had been boasting before the pagan Arabs. With him, they used to tell those Arabs, ‘our victory would be complete.’

كفرهم كان لمجرد العناد الذي هو نتيجة الحسد لا للجهل، وهو أبلغ في الذم؛ لأن الجاهل قد يعذر. الألوسي: 1/322

  • Ibn Abbas said, “The Jews used to invoke Allah (for the coming of Muhammad ) in order to gain victory over the Aws and Khazraj, before the Prophet was sent. When Allah sent him to the Arabs, they rejected him and denied what they used to say about him. Hence, Mu`adh bin Jabal and Bishr bin Al-Bara’ bin Ma`rur, from Bani Salamah, said to them, `O Jews! Fear Allah and embrace Islam. You used to invoke Allah for the coming of Muhammad when we were still disbelievers and you used to tell us that he would come and describe him to us,’ Salam bin Mushkim from Bani An-Nadir replied, `He did not bring anything that we recognize. He is not the Prophet we told you about.‘ [Ibn Kathir]
وَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمْ كِتَٰبٌ مِّنْ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ مُصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَهُمْ وَكَانُوا۟ مِن قَبْلُ يَسْتَفْتِحُونَ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُم مَّا عَرَفُوا۟ كَفَرُوا۟ بِهِۦ ۚ فَلَعْنَةُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَى ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ
And when there came to them a Book from Allah confirming that which was with them – although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved – but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of Allah will be upon the disbelievers. (2:89)

Rabbi “Šim‘on ben Yohai” شمعون بن يوحاي is an eminent Jewish Rabbi from the second century.

According to the jewish site:

Simeon ben Yohai, Rabbi: (c. 100-160 CE) Mishnaic sage and mystic, student of Rabbi Akiba. When he evoked the wrath of the Roman authorities, he, together with his son Eleazar, hid in a cave for thirteen years, where their needs were miraculously provided for. He authored the Zohar, the most fundamental kabbalistic work.

In, we read:

Simeon Ben Yohai (also known as Shimon bar Yochai), a famous rabbi of the second century CE, was a disciple of Rabbi Akiva and a colleague of Rabbi Meir, Rabbi Judah and Rabbi Jose. Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai’s opinions in halachah are referred to frequently in the Talmudic records of the debates and discussions …

The secrets of rabbi simon ben yohai:

These are the secrets that were revealed to R. Šim‘on b. Yohai when he was hiding in a cave on account of (the persecutions of) Caesar king of Edom (i.e., Rome). He stood in prayer forty days and forty nights, and began thusly:

Right-wing AfD German politician reverts to Islam !

Right-wing AfD German politician reverts to Islam !

A senior member of Germany’s right-wing Alternative for Deutschland party has caused a stir by converting to Islam.

Arthur Wagner, who was until recently a member of the Brandenburg state legislative committee, said his decision to become a Muslim was a ‘private matter’.

But members of his party have repeatedly stressed that Islam ‘does not belong’ in Germany and that multiculturalism and mass migration are bad for the country.

At the time of the migration crisis – when Angela Merkel unilaterally declared that over a million people could come to Germany from around the world – Wagner said the chancellor was making a ‘huge mistake’, Tagesspiegel reported.

He explained: ‘Germany is mutating into another country.’

Wagner has resigned his senior position with the party for ‘private reasons’, according to an AfD official quoted in Berliner Zeitung.

Daniel Friese added that the party believes in the German constitution’s provision for freedom of religion.

‘Mr. Wagner resigned on January 11 from the state board on his own volition. Only afterwards was it known that he had converted to Islam,’ Friese said.

Despite his views on the migration crisis, however, Wagner is also well known for his voluntary work with refugees in his hometown of Falkensee.

He once admired Merkel, but after the mass movement of people into Germany he said he had made a ‘gigantic mistake’ about her.

It is AfD’s ‘mission’ to ‘save this country,’ he added.

He was previously a member of her Christian Democrats party.

Wagner declined to comment on his conversion. ‘He does not want to speak with the press. He believes it is a private affair,’ the party spokesman said.

The AfD became Germany’s third largest party in parliament after last September’s general election.

The just ruler (Al-Hasan Al-Basri)

When Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz assumed the caliphate, he wrote to al-Hasan ibn Abi al-Hasan al-Basri asking him to write to him and describe the just ruler.

Al-Hasan (rahimahullah) wrote:

“Be it known to you, O Commander of the Faithful, that Allah instituted the just ruler to be the redress of every wrong-doer, the discipline of every unfair person, the correction of every corrupt man, the strength of every weak one, the justice of every wronged being, and the refuge of every frightened individual.

The just ruler, O Commander of the Faithful, is like a shepherd who is tender toward his camels and kind to them; he takes them to the best pastures, prevents them from going to dangerous places, defends them against wild beasts, and protects them from the harms of the heat and the cold.


The just ruler, O Commander of the Faithful, is like a father who feels compassion for his children, works hard for them when young and teaches them as they grow older, earns for them during his lifetime, and saves for them after his death.


The just ruler, O Commander of the Faithful, is like a tender mother who is dutiful and kind to her baby, who bears him and gives him birth unwillingly, who brings him up as a child, staying up at night when he does, and being quiet when he is at rest; she suckles him for a time and then weans him, she rejoices when he is healthy and is saddened when he is in pain.


The just ruler, O Commander of the Faithful, is the guardian of orphans and treasurer of the poor, educating the young among them and providing for the older ones.


The just ruler, O Commander of the Faithful, is like the heart among the other body organs: they are healthy if the heart is healthy, and sick when the heart is sick.


The just ruler, O Commander of the Faithful, is the one who stands between Allah and his servants; he listens to what Allah says and conveys it to them, he looks to Allah and makes them look too; he is led by Allah and he leads them. Therefore, O Commander of the Faithful, in relation to the realm given to you by Allah, may He be exalted and magnified, do not be like a servant whose master entrusted him with his wealth and dependents, but who wasted the wealth and drove away the dependents like tramps, thus impoverishing his master’s family and frittering away his wealth.


Be it known to you, O Commander of the Faithful, that Allah has prescribed punishments to act as deterrents to wicked deeds and vile acts. So if these deeds and acts are committed by those responsible for implementing the punishments, what will happen? Allah has prescribed punishment as a means to better living for His servants. So if the one who should be doing justice to them kills them, what will happen? And remember death and what follows it, O Commander of the Faithful, when you will have no adherents and no supporters to help you against it; so provide for it and for the great terror that follows it.


Be it known to you, O Commander of the Faithful, that you have a home other than the one you are in now. In it you will abide for a long time. Your loved ones will abandon you and leave you in it all alone. Provide for it that which will remain with you. “On the day when a man flees from his brother, and from his mother and his father, and from his wife and his sons.” [Quran. 80:34–36]


Remember, O Commander of the Faithful, “… when what is in the tombs is resurrected, and what is in the breasts is gathered” [Quran. 100:9–10], secrets will become manifest, and the Book “… leaves out nothing small or great but has recorded it” [Quran. 18:49].


Now, O Commander of the Faithful, while you still have time and before the arrival of the appointed hour of death and loss of hope: do not rule Allah’s servants as the ignorant do, and do not behave with them as oppressors do, the way the domineering arrogant ones conduct themselves with those they deem to be weak, for they observe no covenant or compact of protection. Otherwise, you will end up bearing your burdens and other burdens too, and you will carry your loads and other loads too. Do not be deceived by those who enjoy what causes you misery and those who eat good things in this world of theirs, for you will then lose your good things in the Hereafter. Do not look at your power today but look rather at your power tomorrow, when you are captive in the snares of death, standing before Allah, may He be exalted, and in the presence of the angels, the prophets, and the apostles, when “All faces shall be humbled before the Living, Self-Subsisting One” [Quran. 20:111].

O Commander of the Faithful, although I have not achieved in my sermon what earlier men of intellect have, I have not withheld advice and sympathy from you. Consider this letter of mine to you as would a healer who gives his beloved to drink bitter medicine because he hopes for the cure and good health it will bring about. Peace be upon you, O Commander of the Faithful, Allah’s mercy, and His blessings.

[Al-Iqd Al-Farid, vol. 1, page 49-51]


رسالة الإمام الحسن البصري الى أمير المومنين عمر بن عبدالعزيز في صفة الإمام العادل
اعلم يا أمير المؤمنين، أن الله جعل الإمام العادل قوام كل مائل، وقصد كل جائر، وصلاح كل فاسد، وقوة كل ضعيف، ونصفت كل مظلوم، ومفزع كل ملهوف والإمام العدل يا أمير المؤمنين كالراعي الشفيق على إبله، الرفيق بها، الذي يرتاد لها أطيب المراعي، ويذودها عن مراتع الهلكة، ويحميها من السباع، ويكنها من أذى الحر والقرّ. والإمام العدل يا أمير المؤمنين كالأب الحاني على ولده، يسعى لهم صغاراً، ويعلمهم كبارًا، يكتسب لهم في حياته، ويدخر لهم بعد مماته. والإمام العدل يا أمير المؤمنين كالأم الشفيقة البرة الرفيقة بولدها، حملته كرهًا، ووضعته كرهًا، وربته طفلاً تسهر بسهره، وتسكن بسكونه، ترضعه تارة وتفطمه أخرى، وتفرح بعافيته، وتغتمّ بشكايته، والإمام العدل يا أمير المؤمنين وصى اليتامى، وخازن المساكين، يربي صغيرهم، ويمون كبيرهم. والإمام العدل يا أمير المؤمنين كالقلب بين الجوارح، تصلح الجوارح بصلاحه، وتفسد بفساده. والإمام العدل يا أمير المؤمنين هو القائم بين الله وبين عباده، يسمع كلام الله ويسمعهم، وينظر إلى الله ويريهم، وينقاد إلى الله ويقودهم. فلا تكن يا أمير المؤمنين فيما ملّكك الله عز وجل كعبد ائتمنه سيده، واستحفظه ماله وعياله، فبدد المال وشرد العيال، فأفقر أهله وفرق ماله. و اعلم يا أمير المؤمنين أن الله أنزل الحدود ليزجر بها عن الخبائث والفواحش، فكيف إذا أتاها من يليها! وأن الله أنزل القصاص حياة لعباده، فكيف إذا قتلهم من يقتص لهم! واذكر يا أمير المؤمنين الموت وما بعده، وقلة أشياعك عنده، وأنصارك عليه، فتزود له ولما بعده من الفزع الأكبر. و أعلم يا أمير المؤمنين أن لك منزلاً غير منزلك الذي أنت فيه، يطول فيه ثواؤك، ويفارقك أحباؤك، يسلمونك في قعره فريدًا وحيدًا. فتزود له ما يصحبك {يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ . وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ . وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ} [عبس:34-36] وذكر يا أمير المؤمنين {أَفَلَا يَعْلَمُ إِذَا بُعْثِرَ مَا فِي الْقُبُورِ . وَحُصِّلَ مَا فِي الصُّدُورِ} [العاديات:9-10]، فالأسرار ظاهرة، والكتاب لا يغادر صغيرة ولا كبيرة إلا أحصاها. فالآن يا أمير المؤمنين وأنت في مهل قبل حلول الأجل، وانقطاع الأمل. لا تحكم يا أمير المؤمنين في عباد الله بحكم الجاهلين، ولا تسلك بهم سبيل الظالمين، ولا تسلط المستكبرين على المستضعفين، فإنهم لا يرقبون في مؤمن إلاّ ولا ذمة، فتبوء بأوزارك وأوزار مع أوزارك، وتحمل أثقالك وأثقالاً مع أثقالك. ولا يغرنك الذين يتنعمون بما فيه بؤسك، ويأكلون الطيبات في دنياهم بإذهاب طيباتك في آخرتك. ولا تنظر إلى قدرتك اليوم، ولكن انظر إلى قدرتك غدًا وأنت مأسور في حبائل الموت، وموقوف بين يدى الله في مجمع من الملائكة النبيين والمرسلين، وقد عنت الوجوه للحى القيوم. إني يا أمير المؤمنين، وإن لم أبلغ بعظتي ما بلغه أولو النهى من قبلي، فلم آلك شفقة ونصحاً، فأنزل كتابي إليك كمداوي حبيبه يسقيه الأدوية الكريهة لما يرجو له في ذلك من العافية والصحة. والسلام عليك يا أمير المؤمنين ورحمة الله وبركاته.

Jews on Prophet Muhammad !

Jews on Prophet Muhammad !
The Garden of Wisdom (Bustan Al‑Ukul بستان العقول) is a rare Jewish systematic theology. It is a treatise of the theology of the Jews living in Southern Arabia-Jews of Yemen- written by Nathanael Ibn al-Fayyumi لابن الفيومي  in the twelfth century.
Edited and Translated from an Unique Manuscript in the Library of Columbia University.
(Translated from the Arabic by David Levine, New York, The Columbia University Press, 1908, pp. 103-110).
He wrote:
Even before the revelation of the Law He sent prophets to the nations, as our sages of blessed memory explain, “Seven prophets prophesied to the nations of the world before the giving of the Torah: Laban, Jethro, Balaam, Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar.”
And again after its revelation nothing prevented Him from sending to them whom He wished that the world might not remain without religions ….. It is further said,
” يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ لِيُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَيَهْدِيَكُمْ سُنَنَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ “
“God desireth to declare these things unto you and direct you according to the ordinances of those who have gone before you.”^
That indicates that Mohammed was a prophet to them but not to those who preceded them in the knowledge of God …. A proof that He sends a prophet to every people according to their language is found in this passage of the Koran,
” وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلاَّ بِلِسَانِ قَوْمِهِ لِيُبَيِّنَ لَهُمْ “
“We sent a prophet only according to the language of His people.”
Consequently has He sent a prophet to us He would have surely been on our language …. and again, had He been for us why did God say to him,
” لِتُنذِرَ قَوْماً مَّآ أُنذِرَ آبَآؤُهُمْ “
*’Lo thou art one of the apostles sent to warn a people whose fathers Have not warned.”^
He meant the people who served at-Lat and al-Uzzah. As for us, behold our fathers were not without warnings throughout an extended period, and likewise prophets did not fail them. But Mohammed’s message was to a people whose fathers had not been warned and who had no Divine Law through which to be led aright, therefore he directed them to his law since they were in need of it.
This is an evident testimony that Muhammad was a true Prophet of God, but he – as a jew- refused to follow the truth, just because ‘his fathers were warned’.
This, however can be easily refuted by the Ayat that explain that Prophet Muhammad was sent to the whole humankind;

Allah says to His servant and Messenger Muhammad :

[وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَـكَ إِلاَّ كَآفَّةً لِّلنَّاسِ بَشِيراً وَنَذِيراً]

(And We have not sent you except as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all mankind,) i.e., to all of creation among those who are accountable for their deeds.

This is like the Ayah:

[قُلْ يَأَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ جَمِيعًا]

(Say: “O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah.”) (7:158)


[تَبَارَكَ الَّذِى نَزَّلَ الْفُرْقَانَ عَلَى عَبْدِهِ لِيَكُونَ لِلْعَـلَمِينَ نَذِيراً ]

(Blessed be He Who sent down the Criterion to His servant that he may be a warner to the all creatures.) (25:1)

Allah knows best !

Why Australian prisoners are reverting to Islam ?

Why Australian prisoners are reverting to Islam ?

Academics, imams and prison workers widely agree that conversions to Islam are now commonplace in Australia’s prisons.

Robbie Maestracci, a community outreach worker with the Islamic Council of Queensland, pays weekly visits to Muslim inmates in the greater Brisbane area. He believes there is a prominent trend of conversions to Islam among detainees.

“Without a doubt there is … We’re constantly being made aware of new names of people who have embraced Islam or names of people who are wanting to embrace Islam. At least every two weeks, there’s another name or two being added to our list,” Maestracci says.

Michael Kennedy, a veteran detective of 20 years, knows more than most about the subject. Since leaving the New South Wales organised crime squad he has studied Islam and incarceration extensively as an academic at the University of Western Sydney.

Kennedy has maintained contact with a “lot of good crooks” met in his former life. They exchange letters now and again. His correspondents drift in and out of jail, giving him a unique insight into the place of religion in prison.

“They’re pretty easy to talk to. One in particular I’m thinking of, I said [name removed], ‘did you get religious?’”

“He said ‘Oh no, but a lot of people do, it’s the way you get by. It’s the way you’re able to deal with what’s happened to you.’

“You’re isolated from all the people that you know in your life, whether good people or bad. You need to connect with someone about something.”

In this reading, the discovery of religion is essentially a coping mechanism, and a way to forge a shared identity in the dog-eat-dog world of prison.

Kennedy says more often than not it’s a positive influence, which can open a pathway to rehabilitation. It gives inmates some semblance of structure and provides a motive to stay away from drugs and alcohol.

“I actually don’t think it’s a bad [coping mechanism], but some would argue that it is,” he said. “If you think about it, from my point of view, it gives them a bit of hope.”

The best publicly available information comes from a 2013 census of NSW prisoners, which suggests Muslims remain a minority, although one that is overrepresented. The census showed Muslims accounted for about 9.3% of the state’s prison population compared with 3.2% of the NSW population.

“Inmates suspected of, or identified as, holding radical views are closely monitored by experienced and well trained staff, and moved away from other inmates if necessary.”

But Jones believes there are risks in segregating already radicalised offenders from the general prison population, an approach not adopted in Victoria, where they are dispersed.

A spokeswoman for Corrections Victoria said it disperses prisoners “wherever practicable” and “according to their assessed level of risk and individual needs”.

“This approach aims to prevent extremist views being continually reinforced by like-minded prisoners,” she said.

Ali Kadri, the vice-president of the Islamic Council of Queensland, believes there is no real evidence suggesting prisoners are becoming radicalised.

He believes, ultimately, religious conversions are a force for good.

“Not just that, we find people who have always been socially isolated and are living a life in crime finding faith in prison and feeling apart of a community, so they have more motivation to behave than they did before,” Kadri says.

“We believe that faith, not just Islam, has the potential to help people who are in that situation, to find the right path.”
