Sohail, so now Muslims have appropriated the scriptures of the Bible to authenticate Muhammad and the Qur'an. Having read the Bible and the Qur'an, this nonsense of yours is beyond ridiculous. However, I do have some bad news for you, directly from the Bible no less. But of course you will say that the Bible has been corrupted except for the parts that you have appropriated for Muhammad. In any event, here are some scriptures that have not been abrogated by the Qur'an.

Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zec 14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zec 14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Micah 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Psalms 146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
Psa 146:10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
Psa 147:2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
Psa 147:12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
Psa 147:19 He shows his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

Here are few things for you to consider: Are you keeping the feast of tabernacles? Where in the Qur'an does it say that Allah is the God of Jacob? Is God of Jacob planning to reside in Mecca or Jerusalem? Will the law go forth form Zion(another name for Jerusalem) or will it go forth from Mecca? To whom has God revealed his statues and judgments, Jacob and Israel or Muhammad and the Muslims?
