SOME NATIONS' ENVYING THE PROPHET

"Has the Reminder been sent down to him out of all of us?" They are in doubt about My Reminder. They have yet to taste My punishment. (Qur'an, 38:8)

Their Prophet said to them: "God has appointed Saul to be your king." They said: "How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does? He has not even got much wealth!" He said: "God has chosen him over you and favored him greatly in knowledge and physical strength. God gives kingship to anyone He wills. God is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing." (Qur'an, 2:247)

They say, "Why was this Qur'an not sent down to one of the great men of the two cities?" (Qur'an, 43:31)

New Testament

When the Sabbath came, he [Jesus] began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. "Where did this man get these things?" they asked. "What's this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! Is this not the carpenter? Is this not Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Are his sisters not here with us?" And they took offense at him. (Mark 6:2-3)

 


SOME NATIONS' DEMANDING MIRACLES

Those who do not believe say [to Mohammed]: "If only a Sign could be sent down to him from his Lord!" You are only a warner. Every people has a guide. (Qur'an, 13:7)

They say: "We will not believe you until you make a spring gush out from the ground for us; or have a garden of dates and grapes that you make rivers come pouring through; or make the sky, as you claim, fall down on us in lumps; or bring God and the angels here as a guarantee; or possess a house built out of gleaming gold; or ascend up into Heaven-and even then we will not believe in your ascent unless you bring us down a book to read!" Say: "Glory be to my Lord! Am I anything but a human messenger?" (Qur'an, 17:90-93)

New Testament

"Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe." (John 4:48)

So they asked him: "What miraculous sign, then, will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?" (John 6:30)


PROPHETS ACCUSED OF BEING POSSESSED

Equally, no Messenger came to those before them without their saying: "A magician or a madman!" Did they bequeath this to each other? Indeed, they are an unbridled people. (Qur'an, 51:52-53)

New Testament

When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him [Jesus], for they said: "He is out of his mind." And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said: "He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons." (Mark 3:21-22)


PROPHETS DO NOT SPEAK FROM WHIM

Your companion is not misguided or misled; nor does he speak from whim. It is nothing but Revelation revealed, taught him by One immensely strong. (Qur'an, 53:2-5)

...[Khidr said,] I did not do it of my own volitionů (Qur'an, 18:82)

New Testament

By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but Him Who sent me. (John 5:30)

And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:19-21)

Old Testament

I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. (Deuteronomy 18:18)


THE IMPERMANENCE OF THIS LIFE

The life of this world is nothing but a game and a diversion. The abode of the Hereafter-that is truly Life, if they only knew. (Qur'an, 29:64)

Old Testament

We are aliens and strangers in your sight, as were all our forefathers. Our days on Earth are like a shadow, and there is no abiding. (1 Chronicles 29:15)


THE UNBELIEVERS WILL BE RESURRECTED BLIND

Those who are blind in this world will be blind in the Hereafter and even further off the Path. (Qur'an, 17:72-73)

But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one, and on the Day of Rising We will gather him blind. (Qur'an, 20:124)

Old Testament

I will bring distress on the people and they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord. (Zephaniah 1:17)
