Shalom ya Moshe,/Salam ya musa ,

Etymologically the word Islam came from shalom or salam means peace. I'm a Malaysian muslimah and we are always being told that you people are ahli kitab, people of the book. however, "they" influence us that all evil are jewish. I studied comparative religion and wish to understand other people's faith. I came to a conclusion that religions are man made but revelations are metaphysical.

Queen of Sheba embraces the faith of king Solomon, she's Arab and he's jewish. The quraish meccan tribe of our prophet rejected abrahamaic religion, whereas the yemenese were of the gnostic in the pre islamic time. They quraish even try to kill him . It's true that the jews were prosecuted in yemen and sorry for that.

I'm trying to understand the jewish culture and arts and loving it.
