Reader comment on item: Offer: $1 million for Finding "Jerusalem" in the Koran
in response to reader comment: "Jerusalem's not there and never was Muhammad"

May the peace of God be upon you all,

Today's corrupted Islam has little, if anything, to do with the Qur'an. The Qur'an has been abandoned in favour of human innovations called Hadith and Sunnah. As a student of the Qur'an, I don't feign modesty; God has blessed me with a good understanding of it. All praise and glory is due to Him alone.

Muhammad never set foot in the land of Palestine. This is not disputed by anyone who understands (1) the Arabic language and (2) the Qur'an.

[Qur'an 17:1] Most glorified is the One who summoned His servant (Muhammad) during the night, from the Sacred Masjid (of Mecca) to the **farthest place of prostration**...

Subhana allathee asra biAAabdihi laylan mina almasjidi alharami ila almasjidi al-aqsa...

"Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa" -- "The Aqsa Mosque" -- means "the farthest place where there is prostration," many billions of Light Years away. This verse informs us that Muhammad, the soul, was taken to the highest Heaven to be given the Qur'an (2:185, 44:3, 53:1-18, & 97:1).

It is indeed a shame that most "Muslims" can't appreciate the miraculous nature of this verse, which informs us that Muhammad was taken to HEAVEN (Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa) from Mecca.

Jerusalem never entered the picture. Muhammad never set foot in the land of Palestine. Muhammad never rode a magical horse through the night's sky from Arabia to Palestine.

GOD be Glorified, far above these nonsensical claims made by today's corrupted "Muslims".

Regardless of whether you're a Jew, Christian, or Muslim... we can all agree... the "furthest place of prostration" is directly before Almighty God, where the Angels prostrate, in the highest Heaven. GOD is Great. This is where the soul of Muhammad was summoned. Surely, we all believe in souls... sadly most Muhammad-worshipping "Muslims" have lost theirs to idolatry.

May God guide and bless you all, and may He keep me on the right path.
