The good ole Sheikh needs to read the Qur'an with care

Dr. Pipes

Sheikh Ra wrote

Surah 10: 47-49 declared that a Prophet shall be raised from and sent to all Nations as the Americas was not to be except.

This is nonsense or the Sheikh and I are reading different Qur'ans

Dr. Pipes this is what it says in Q10:47 and this is really the most important part of the three ayaat and it says

ولكل امة رسول

Or and for each nation/people a messenger

Which means that the above statment is incorrect and here is the correction: Allah sends a MESSENGER (not a prophet and Muslims make big deals about the difference between a Nabi and a Rasul so the good ole Sheikh does not even get what the Qur'an is really saying in Arabic) to EACH nation/people (not to all nations as the good ole Sheikh is saying) or an Arab messenger for the Arabs and an African Messneger for Africans etc... and this indeed can be confirmed if we read Q14:4 where it says

وما ارسلنا من رسول الا بلسان قومه

Or and we only send a messenger unless he speaks the language of his own people

Now we know why Allah sends a messenger to each nation this also exposes the ethno-centric nature of Islam and that it is really the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only so what religion does the good ole Sheikh belongs too? And to quote Muslims: Only Allahu A3lam but it ain't Islam because he indeed seems to be admitting that Islam is the religion of the arabs only and he discovered his rasul! Mash'allah

What a disaster
