Just a side note – the historicity of the Quran – the historical integrity of the Quran
you know who Haman is in the Quran?
he’s the minister
or one of the ministers of who?
Haman is mentioned in the Quran
about 6 times
and Allah tells us about Haman
that Firaun commanded him to build him a tower
Firaun commanded him to build him a tower
is there a mention of a Haman in the Bible?
is there a mention of Haman building a tower?
but the Haman in the Bible didn’t work for Firaun, he worked for another king named Xerxes in the Biblical Book of Esther
So the Biblical Catholic scholars in the 1600’s
who were first getting into Oriental studies – Islamic studies
they look this thing up in the Quran and say “Aha! We found a mistake in the Quran”
“They’re talking about Haman”
“working under Firaun, while the Book of Esther tells us that Haman worked under the king named Xerxes, a 1000 years after the Pharaoh”
“in Babylon, not even in Egypt”
“and he built them a tower”.
you ever heard of the story – “The Tower of Babylon”?
so they challenged the historical integrity of the Quran (MaazAllah) – they said from the disbeliever’s point of view
“Oh! Muhammad must have plagiarized it from a priest”
“and made a mistake”
“because he mixed up the story of the Tower of Babel”
“and the story of Xerxes with the story of the Pharaoh and he’s confused between the two of them”
that’s what he did
misquotation in the Quran
what’s really interesting is?
In the late 1800’s
the body of Catholic scholarship
unanimously denied the book of Esther as a valid source of history
they acknowledge their own book
they acknowledge that their own book, unanimously
is legend – just stories made up – names made up
The Jewish Encyclopedia even now tells you the Book of Esther has no historical value
but then it remains – this one question remains – the Quran tells us
that this Quran tell Bani Israel about the things that even they disagreed in
vven they disagreed in some stuff and this Quran tells them – this speaker is giving this to you
he can’t be the speaker then – there’s some – this knowledge is coming from somewhere else
now check this out
You know Maurice Bucaille
this famous Muslim who wrote “Bible, Quran and Science”
before he got into that subject, he was a historian – he wanted to study Islamic history
when he came across this problem presented by Catholic priests
he did a little research – you see – what happened in the late 1800’s was
The Egyptian hieroglyphics
being revived as a language
Because hieroglyphics had died about almost 2,000 years
before the Prophet (sallahu alahi wasallam)
Egyptian hieroglyphics had died as a language
and they were revived by German and French scholars
the study is called “Egyptology”
they traveled to Egypt, they studied hieroglyphics and they developed a scheme of you know spelling those images and turning them into a
pronounceable words and all this stuff – okay?
it started about a 120, 130 years ago
So they got into this study
and they made documentation of who the ministers that are mentioned in there
the documents of the Egyptians
what their roles were etc etc.
Maurice travels to France
goes to an egyptologist and asks him
by the way, in your records, did you see any name “Haman”?
And he says “Well, I wouldn’t know, you have to go to Germany, but where did you get the name Haman?”
He said “well there’s a Messenger, a man who claims to be a Messenger – in the 7th century”
who says that there was a minister of
who’s name was what?
“and he told him to build a tower”
he said “that’s impossible!”
nobody could have had access to any names
From that time because the language has already died at the Prophet’s time – for how long already?
so he travels to Germany to look up the names of
different architects and constructors and ministers under the name – under the Pharoah
specifically under the Pharaoh at the time of the historical era of Musa (alahi salam) – of Moses
what does he find – “Haman”
minister of the stone quarries
This name is discovered in the 1900’s
they actually have a statue in Austria, I believe
“Haman” written on it underneath – they revived it from Egypt – his name is Haman – in Austria – the statue is sitting there
we don’t know for sure if that’s the Haman of – of
You know – of the Quran, but still the name exists
the fact that he’s in charge of construction exists
and this is something they didn’t have – but which speaker had?
The Messenger of Allah
but actually the speakers is who then?
