Shared Prophets

Paperback 264 pages.

Shared Prophets brings together, in one place, revelations about the Biblical heroes, and the odd villain, whom Allah invited to strut their stuff on His stage, the Koran. Read about what they said and did and be both amazed and mystified.

Shared Prophets assumes a rudimentary knowledge of the Old Testament’s best known characters i.e. Moses, Abraham, Noah, Joseph (son of Jacob), Solomon, Lot, Saul, David, Jethro, Adam, Cain and Abel.

As to the New Testament, it is sufficient to be aware that Christians believe 1) that Jesus is the Son of God 2) that he was born of the Virgin Mary 3) and that he died on the Cross.

The Koran gives credence only to the Virgin birth and vociferously denies the other two core Christian beliefs, with Jesus being the most vocal, after Allah, in denouncing those who would claim he is the son of a god.

Mary, the only woman mentioned by name in the Koran, is there to back her son’s claim that he is not divine, but just another Prophet of Allah, and a lesser one at that. There is no Joseph, Mary is a single mother, or so it would seem.

This introduction is my way of beginning the process of convincing those of you who don’t care to read about the Koran in the mistaken and dangerous delusion that it is like the Bible, that you are wrong! The Koran is not like the Bible – especially the New Testament portion, of which the Koran is the antithesis. Don’t take my word for it. Read Shared Prophets, and let Allah's varied spokespersons, including the only Arab prophet mentioned in the Koran, Salih, convince you.

10:90 And We brought the Children of Israel across the sea. Pharaoh and his troops followed them insolently and aggressively; but when he was about to drown, he said: “I believe that there is no god but He in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of those who submit [to Allah].”
