Judaism Was Here Hundreds Of Years Before Islāmic Religion

We should be very wise in the way that we evangelize.  Actions speak louder than words and they don't necessarily have to be direct interactions with other people but our lifestyles in and of themselves speaks volumes to even people we've never even met.  

One thing that I've just learned because of last weeks assignments in class is that Muslims believe Christians and Jews have desecrated the Qur'an and I was thrilled to learn that on the World Religion Time Line that we studied at the first  of this subterm taught us that Hinduism was the oldest religion and that Judaism came along before Islāmic Religion.

This means that our Holy Bible has not desecrated their text in the Qur'an and the Hadith but all of our historical dead sea scrolls and even the Holy Masoretic manuscripts date back to A.D. 900.

And unless they can prove that their Qur'an and Hadith were written before our oldest Holy texts then that means that Surah 2:75 78-79 can be challenged as their truth that they use to accuse the Jews and Christians of sabotaging the Qur'an.

I once had a friend from Iraq.  We worked together at El Palacios Mexican restaurant in Jackson, MS. in the mid eighties.   He was a very nice guy and we wanted so much to accept each other that he told me that Allah was one and the same as the God that I serve.

My heart and spirit knew differently even way back then.  But it never stopped us from being the dearest of friends.  Things are a bit different now and I am not sure that I would feel as comfortable in that relationship today.
