Hi Muhammad.

It is sad that Muslims are discouraged from reading the Jewish prophets. I have been reading one named Sirach and I thought of you.

39:1 How different the man who devotes himself to the study of the law of the Most High! He explores the wisdom of the men of old and occupies himself with the prophecies;

2 He treasures the discourses of famous men, and goes to the heart of involved sayings;

3 He studies obscure parables, and is busied with the hidden meanings of the sages.

4 He is in attendance on the great, and has entrance to the ruler.

5 He travels among the peoples of foreign lands to learn what is good and evil among men.

6 His care is to seek the LORD, his Maker, to petition the Most High, To open his lips in prayer, to ask pardon for his sins. Then, if it pleases the LORD Almighty, he will be filled with the spirit of understanding; He will pour forth his words of wisdom and in prayer give thanks to the LORD,

7 Who will direct his knowledge and his counsel, as he meditates upon his mysteries.

When I was a young man and I read Isa say "Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of (God) Allah"

I asked myself how can I be sure what Allah said or what men may have said he said?

I decided to read the holy books of every religion to see if I could heard the words of Allah. I did not want to miss a single word.

If you are truly seeking the truth you must turn over every stone.

I encourage you to read the words of Isa. And let Allah guide you.
