Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood
in response to reader comment: Kittab - Bible - Torah

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), May 28, 2008 at 19:01

Qur'an 9:111 -

"Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in his cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on him (Allah) in truth, through the Law (alttawrati - "tawra"), the Gospel (waalinjeeli - "injil"), and the Qur'an (waalqurani): and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah. then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme."

1. Law (alttawrati), gospel (waalinjeeli) and Qur'an (waalqurani) are all according to Allah's law, Allah's word (gospel) - the Qur'an.

2. The God of the Bible - and the Bible itself - has nothing - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING - to do with this verse.

3. Who are the "slain" in this verse, sTs?

4. Who does "slay" apply to in this verse, sTs? Is it the Midianites?

5. Does this verse promise Paradise? Paradise for doing what?

5. You will never find verse in the Bible that promises Paradise for killing or being killed.
