Prophet Samuel Mosque?

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

Years ago I noted something very strange.  The holy tomb of the biblical prophet Shmuel – Samuel, located on a hilltop just outside the Ramot neighborhood and hilltop of Jerusalem, had an islamic mosque built on top of it.  I inquired from a few online islamic sources about why, as Shmuel HaNavi (the biblical prophet Samual) is part of the Nevi’im, Tanach (in the Jewish world) or Old Testament (in the Xian world) - - and has no role in the islamic world.  I received no meaningful answer beyond a confirmation that there are no references to the biblical prophet Samuel in islam.

Last week I wrote an article on super-super secessionism, the belief of another religion coming to replace an existing one.  First this was the position of the catholic church (super secessionism), and later of Islam, replacing xianity that replaced Judaism.  An anonymous commentor simply explained it thus: “the Qur'an says that all prophets were Muslims (Muslim is an Arabic word, the translation to English is “one who submits to the will of G-d”.) According to this definition, all Prophets were Muslims.”

But commentor Jesterhead has broken it down for us much better.  Here’s his comment:

“The islamic equivalent of replacement theology is known as Tahrif and accuses Jews and Christians of distorting their own texts (with the former cursed for angering G-d by rejecting his message aka islam and the latter cursed for being led astray) as well as believing that original Jews and Christians were essentially proto-muslims called Hanifs.

One could also call it Retroactive Super Secessionism since muslims believe that Adam was the first muslim before the concept of religion even existed.  Other nonsense includes Haman existing in the time of the Exodus instead of during the Persian Achaemenid Empire and being the vizier of Pharaoh.”

Now I understand…

Well, nothing new here. They feel the whole world is theirs and that's it. Wherever they tread, it's theirs. We all know this is their thinking by now, but the sadder part is how the SOI is allowing this to happen in our "Jewish" land, without even a peep.

Reb Akiva said “One could also call it Retroactive Super Secessionism since muslims believe that Adam was the first muslim before the concept of religion even existed.”

My answer: “Muslim” means “one who submits to the will of G-d”.
Adam was commanded not to eat from a tree, that was G-d's will.
Adam disobeyed, he asked forgiveness, then G-d forgave him.

Reb Akiva said “Other nonsense includes Haman existing in the time of the Exodus instead of during the Persian Achaemenid Empire and being the vizier of Pharaoh.””

My answer: Akiva lived in the first century, it's not possible that Akiva is in this blog now!!! :)
