Our dear slayhy I'm very glad that you brought up the subject of al-masjid al-Aqsa so you tell us

1. How come al-Tabari had no clue about what is really the Quranic al-masjid al-Aqsa?

2. And how come all the inscriptions deal with Christian polemics and even Muhammdan Abd Allah must be read as the blessed the servant of Allah aka Jesus? Any guesses?

For the readers: the Qur'an as usual has the yes and the no and the only Allahu a3lam or only Allah's knows and this is a case in point so the Qur'an tells us that Jesus did not die but it also tells us that he did die and he was resurrected as you shall see and the credit here goes to Luxenberg

1. The Qur'an says اني عبد الله اتيني الكتب وجعلني نبيا where Jesus is quoted as saying that he is THE SERVANT OF ALLAH (or Abd Allah so now we know who is really the Quranic Abd Allah) and that Allah provided him with the book (read this as the NT) and that Allah made him a prophet

2. Now if we turn to the inscriptions at al-Masjid al-Aqsa we find the following اللهم صلي على رسولك وعبدك عيسى ابن مريم or O God bless your messenger and servant (see number 1) Jesus son of mary (see Luxenberg) then it says والسلم عليه يوم ولد ويوم يموت ويوم يبعث حيا or and grace be upon him the day he is born and he will die and the day he will be resurrected

Do you know what this means? It means that the Umayyads (Abd al-Malik the builder of this monument belonged to the Umayyads clan) were saying that Jesus will be born he will die and he will be resurrected and this is indeed what the Christians are saying

4. So let us turn to the Qeryan aka the Qur'an and for the readers the author of Qur'an assumes that the reader of the Qur'an already is aware of that is in the Bible and case in point is the story of the sacrifice where the subject of the sacrifice is not identified in the Qur'an but it is assumed that the reader already knows who is really the subject and this is indeed the case here and if we turn to Q4:157 and as was pointed out by Luxenberg "the Quran does not deny the crucifiction as a historical fact" which means that the understanding of the Umayyads was that Jesus indeed died and you will find in this inscription that he indeed will die

5. As for resurrection of Jesus we have to turn to Q72:19 where it says وانه لما قام عبد الله يدعوه كادوا يكونون عليه لبدا or

1. wa inahu lama or and when

2. qama means he stood up but the word here really means he was resurrected (yum al-qeyama means the day of standing or resurrection)

3. Abd Allahi is Jesus as we established in 1

4. yad3ohu or calling him

5. kadoo yakununa 3alayhi or they almost upon him

6. LABDA this word has no meaning

And this is what Luxenberg is saying and it makes much sense that the word LABADA is a misreading of the Syriac word ܥܒܕܐ or 3abada because the Syriac letters ayn and lam are very close and this is the lam in Syriac ܠ and this is the Syriac 3ayn ܥ and what really happened is that the Syriac word ܥܒܕܐ was read as ܠܒܕܐ or the Quranic لبدا or LABADA et voila and here is Luxenberg's translation of Q72:19

and when the servant of god (read this as Jesus) was resurrected all the while calling him (that is continuing to worship god) they (the people would almost have worshiped him (as God)

So it seems that the Qur'an really says that Jesus died and was resurrected

Oh the Umayyads? there is no doubt that they were Christian Arabs and that islam did not exist this early in 72 AH or 692CE when al-Masjid al-Aqsa was built

So congratulations our dear slayhy but the Qur'an and the inscriptions at al-masjid al-Aqsa really say that Jesus indeed died and was resurrected

Oh the Nativity? Stay tuned
