Vain Inventions of Man
Islam's Friday (day 6)
(day 1 or a peculiar day 8)
Shabbat - (The Seventh Day)
“Six days you labour, and shall do all your work,
but the seventh day is a Sabbath of יהוה your Elohim.
You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter,
nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle,
nor your stranger who is within your gates.
“For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea,
and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day.
Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.
[pw =pagan word]
Isa 56:7 Even them will I bring to my morally ordained mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their offerings shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for ALL PEOPLE.
(*See His Name)
66:23 And it
shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another,
flesh come to worship before me, saith YAHUAH.

Is Mohamed a true prophet and the quran a "new revelation" ?
Our discussion with a Muslim regarding the shabbat / sabbath reveals all. He vanishes without a reply when we confront him with the "ancient book" , the Word of Elohim the scriptures.
After I stated on Youtube that Mashiak (pw Messiah) did not come to change the Tor'rah (law) and that the Quran is definitely not a new revelation that can be added to scripture, I received a reply from a Muslim by the name of Haroon. He assumed I was a Jew, which I am not, and that I followed Rabbi's ( perhaps because I referred to the To'rah which is ironic since Rabbis do not follow To'rah but Talmud and Mishna which corrupts Torah. I did not get to explain that I am a Yahudi (worshiper of Yahuah) and His Son Yah'ushua but our conversation continued as follows...
are partly on the right track. Yes Jesus pbuh said that he did not come
to change the law. and nether did Prophet Muhammud. pbuh. The Quran is
very clear that the Jews intefered with their texts making their own
For muslims the importance of friday as a day of sabbath is according to quranic injunction. One is commanded to close ones business and stop all activities and heed the call to midday prayers and the sermon . We take special ablutions for this day and put on clean fresh garb and the use of perfume is recommended . When the prayer is over we may go out and seek the bounty of God Almighty and God is the best provider of sustenance. Also this day is important as many events took place which are important in religion. Adam ws created on this day . He entered paradise on this day. He left paradise on this day to be placed on earth.The end time will be on a friday so there are many important events linked to this day. Also charity and prayer on this day holds special rewards as one leaves ones ctivities and business transactions to come to prayer for a period longer than the normal daily prayers with complete trust in God Almighty that he is the best provider of sustenance. It can also be a day of mass gathering where community matters can be discussed and believers gather to bond. many benefits.?
haroon, thanks for your reply. I appreciate our conversation. It is not
often that I can talk with someone on this level without them becoming
abusive or foolish, thank you. I will try to keep our dialogue
streamlined so that we don’t have to digress into a million different
topics at the same time. So my next question is which day according to
Muslims does the Messiah Yah’ushua accept as the sabbath if at all?
Messiah is not given a choice as to which day he can decide to accept
the Sabbath. It is by the command and decree of the Almighty that
sabbath is established . The Quran was revealed as a universal book of
Guidance hence in many places it addresses mankind " ya ayyuhan naas"
mwening O mankind " Similarly Prophet Muhammud pbuh is also addressed
in the Quran as " a mercy unto creation " So being the final revelation
its universal . All the messengers of God Almighty are described as "
One Brotherhood" but it is people who have divided themselves into
sects. " Chapter 23 9f the Quran. So all messengers would follow the
same day of sabbath. It was people who made changes after the
messengers passed away. Further God Almighty states in the Quran that
the Quran is not a new mesage but a reminder and a confirmation of
previous scripture given to other messengers pbut. That is because it
emanates from one source, the One Almighty God who gave guidance to all
. The only fully preserved scriptural text we have currently is the
Quran which God Almighty said He would preserve from corruption because
it must serve to the end time . Had the previous scriptures been
preserved in its original revealed state then tthe followers of Moses
pbuh would have accepted Jesus because he Jesus pbuh confirmed the
revelation to Moses pbuh ( i have not come to change one jot of the
Law..The Torah. It would then follow that the followers of Jesus pbuh
would have no hesitation in Accepting Prophet Muhammud pbuh as foretold
in previous scriptures and as the message Prophet Muhammud pbuh brought
would be the same as the previous messengers as confirmed in the Quran.
It makes absolute sense. There is no question of superiority .?
Dear Haroon, thanks for the reply. You agree then that Messiah Yah'ushua is subject to the correct sabbath day of To'rah as delivered by Moses and written by the finger of Yah'uah Elohim , so again my question is what day was that? If you are not sure is there any source that you have Quranic or from the scriptures Genesis to Revelations that you could point out??
It is a historical fact that we dont have a Gospel according to God Almighty as revealed to Jesus pbuh. What we have are the writings of four unknown authors and letters of the self appointed Paul and original GREEK scripts.
The language of the biblical lands was Aramaic/Hebrew and not greek or latin. An attempt at preserving a form of religion for christians devised by bishops and roman rulers has resulted in the serious compromise of the religion .
Dear Haroon thank you. Now I read in chapter 23 the Quran states
Exo 20:9 “Six days you labour, and shall do all your work,
Exo 20:10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath* of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. Exo 20:11 “For in six days יהוה made the shamayim (pw heavens) and the world (pw earth), the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה barak'd (pw blessed) the Sabbath day and set it apart. [*-note There are other Sabbaths, but this is the weekly Sabbath.]
The week starts on saturday so the sabbath falls on the friday. The days start at the early evening prayers which is at sunset so after sunset is a new day. We follow the Gregorian calendar for convenience purposes but you have to understand that the gregorian calendar is associated with paganism which i am sure you are aware of. We are of the Abrahamic religions.We do nnot have the revelation as given by God Almighty to Moses pbuh. We have traces of it just like the Gospel . But again i reiterate that the Quran confirms the revelations given to Moses pbuh and Jesus pbuh. So for example when neo atheists attack the person of Moses pbuh and Jesus pbuh as being imagined personalities then the Quran defende their mission, their person and their dignity as noble messengers of God Almighty. And yes i did tell you what day the Prophets accepted as Sabbath and that is Friday. Or else God Almighty would not have told us in the Quran to ask them about the sabbath and how the jews changed it. It says '"ask their doctors of divinity" So there is no ambiguity. There is One God Almighty and His message to all the messengers would be absolutely consistent . Being consistent would then mean that at the finality of Prophethood, the final messenger would be recognised as a true messenger because the message would be the same and a fulfilling of the prophecy of previous messengers as to the coming of the final Messenger. Thus we would all be united in belief and one body of believers. Its logical conclusion to serve until end times. Sabbath for all prophets would be same.?
In the Bible it says to rest on the seventh day of the week, because G-d created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. Today Christians rest on Sunday, Muslims rest on Friday, and Jews rest on Saturday. How do you know that you are celebrating on the right day?
Your very question was dealt with by the Midrash Rabbah, a compilation close to 2,000 years old.
We were first commanded to keep Shabbat in the desert shortly after we left Egypt. How did we know when to keep it? In Exodus 16, we are told that during our journey in the desert, manna fell every day except for one—the Shabbat. So what did we eat then? A double portion fell every Friday so that we would have what to eat the next day as well. On the first Friday after the manna began to fall, the people were surprised to see so much manna—double that which they had received on each of the past five days. When they came to ask Moses about this phenomenon, he revealed that the next day would be the Shabbat and that no manna would fall at all.
The actual wording of G-d's message to Moses and the Jewish People is "See that G-d has given to you the Shabbat." The Midrash points out that the word used is "see" and not "know." It explains:
This is what G-d was saying to them: "If the idolaters will come to you and ask, 'Why do you make the Shabbat day on this day?' you will tell them, 'See, the manna does not fall on the Shabbat.'"
For the next 40 years we had a weekly reminder of the Shabbat every time the manna did not fall. Since then, we have continued to keep count and will continue to do so for the rest of time.
Rabbi Yehuda Halevi in his 12th century classic, "The Kuzari," points to an earlier source for the universally accepted week. He points to the striking fact that the vast majority of the world keeps a seven-day week—evidence that this must be a very ancient custom indeed. How did it begin? When Adam was banished from Eden on the first Friday afternoon of Creation, he rested that first Shabbat. He then counted six days and again rested on the seventh. Ever since, his offspring in many parts of the world have emulated this practice, living their lives by a seven-day week.” reference chabad.org
Isa_42:21 YAH’UAH is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.
Where did i say sixth day. You havent read what i wrote properly. I said the week begins on Sat and ends on fri so friday would be the last day of the week making it the seventh day. I also explained to you when the day starts. Now coming to scripture. Is the Midrash the Torah as revelaled to Moses pbuh. You are relying on Rabbinical writings and presenting it as Torah. That cannot be right. Scholars of judaism and christianity have already reserched this topic extensively and hve stated that The Torah is no more and all we have are Rabbinical writings. It is the same with the Talmud which has gained notoririetary for its content . This has been lamented by many scholars. The gospel has suffered the same fate. However the Quran has confirmed the validity Of what was revealed to Moses pbuh and Jesus pbuh. This confirms the validity of their Messengership and the ORIGINAL pure revelations. Are those previous revelations in existence, no , . Furthermore , Why would the Quran want to change the Sabbath of the Jews or Christians. The Sabbath of the Christians being a Sunday has already been agreed by many biblical historians,to be pagan derived from the pagan roman religion of Mithraism. This was more for political reasons. As for jews, i think your own Rabbis will in secret concede and in fact some have done it openly , that the jews have proven themselves in history to be the most contentious and the most rebellious of the believing peoples. The biggest indictment is the fact they regressesd to worshiping the golden calf after being delivered from bondage. So the story of the changing of the Sabbath sounds extremely credible .
Dear Haroon what you are saying is that the Rabbis moved the week forward by one whole day, from Fridy to Saturday. Now if you are referring to scholars looking at this then that is from the world perspective and from the world’s acceptance of which day is the last day of the week. Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary
Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea, (AD 336) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday….
—Rev. Peter Geiermann, C.SS.R., (1946), p. 50.
So 300 something years before Quran Saturday was still the Sabbath day for us who keep To’rah.
BEFORE TALMUD AND MIDRASH were ADDED by them. The rabbis NEVER tell you they changed the To’rah but they DO tell you they have the “right” to overide the To’rah using their evil Talmud and Midrash traditions etcetera etcetera. The same applies to the pope he is not ashamed to say he overides the SEVENTH DAY sabbath. He accepts the To’rah as unchanged but that he has changed it with his own tradition. So we do not throw away To’rah we throw away the Vatican and Judaism and any religion which changed To’rah.
If you do not accept the TO’rah as reliable then why quote it here as a witness against them? What assures you that the golden calf story is not hearsay?
Exo 31:13 “And you, speak to the children of Yisra’?l, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, יהוה, am setting you apart.
Also see Eze_20:12 and Eze_20:20.
Exo 31:14 ‘And you shall guard the Sabbath, for it is set-apart to you. Everyone who profanes it shall CERTAINLY BE PUT TO DEATH, for anyone who does work on it, that being shall be cut off from among his people.
Exo 31:15 ‘Six days work is done, and on the seventh is a Sabbath of rest, set-apart to יהוה. EVERYONE DOING WORK ON THE SABBATH DAY SHALL CERTAINLY BE PUT TO DEATH.
Exo 31:16 ‘And the children of Yisra’?l shall guard the Sabbath, to perform the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant.
Exo 31:17 ‘Between Me and the children of Yisra’?l it is a sign forever. For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ”
Exo 31:18 And when He
ended speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Mosheh two tablets of
the Witness, tablets of stone, WRITTEN WITH THE FINGER OF ELOHIM.
2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying Yah’ushua that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction
I have not heard from Haroon again.
