Supremacy of Allah in Bible

The Supremacy of Allah in the Torah

 

Reflections with Moses (pbuh) and his vicegerent Joshua (Yashu’) (pbuh)

 

Moses (pbuh) applies the Supremacy of Allah upon the sons of Israel:

What did Moses (pbuh) do with those who believed in him and accepted him, other than emigrating with them from the land of the tyrant, in order to apply the supremacy of Allah on another land:

Gospel of Exodus – Chapter 7:

(15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning;… 16 And thou shalt say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go17 that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear….) [1]

And what is mean by (serve me) here is that they would have a godly ruler whom they would obey and follow his example and would establish in them the supremacy of Allah, otherwise the acts of worship such as prayers, fasting and the likes of that do not require the emigration of the people, for they in general can be performed everywhere. And Joseph (pbuh) and the family of Jacob (pbuh) in his time worshiped Allah in the land of Egypt while the Godly ruler who was Joseph (pbuh). Moreover the believers from Bani (sons of) Israel and from them Moses and Aaron (pbut) used to establish prayers and perform their acts of worship in the land of Egypt all those years before the emigration.

So it clear now that what is meant by the worship that Moses (pbuh) was demanding was the application of the supremacy of Allah and in the book of Exodus chapter 19 is the clarification of that, that the goal of the exodus was none other than the supremacy of Allah:

Gospel of Exodus – chapter 19:

(1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt… 3 And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles ’ wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant , then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests , and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel…)

Moses (pbuh) commands in the last days of his message the supremacy of Allah:

Moses (pbuh) in the end of his message indicated to his people very clearly that the law, the judgment and the ruler ship are to Allah and that He Exalted is the One who appoints the judge, the ruler and the ruler ship:

Gospel of Deuteronomy – chapter 17:

(8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose; 9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment: 10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee: 11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left. 12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel. 13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously. 14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee , whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.)

About seeking verdicts and applying the divine law, Moses (pbuh) directed his people and the believers to come toward the judge or the priest appointed by Allah. And the judge meant here is from the appointed prophets by Allah Exalted and Almighty or appointed by the Prophets (pbut), not the judges who appoint themselves or get appointed by the people who are known for their injustice and are famous for taking in bribes. For that reason He said: (…and unto the judge that shall be in those days….) meaning the judge whom He shall appoint and send in those days:

Gospel of Judges – chapter 2:

(18 And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge…)

Moses (pbuh) clarified to his people in his commandments that came before that the king also has to be appointed by Allah:

(…Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee , whom the LORD thy God shall choose:…)

And not every king the people chose is chosen by Allah:

(15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee……. 36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone) Deuteronomy -chapter 28.

And that is also what manifests clearly in the story of the group of believers who came to Moses (pbuh) in the times of the last “judge” and successor of Allah, Ismael (pbuh), (or Samuel (pbuh) as is his name in the Torah) when they asked him to appoint to them a king whom would go out with them to fight in the cause of Allah. So he appointed to them by the command of Allah “Taloot” (pbuh) (Saol as is his name in the Torah) [2] then he appointed after him David (pbuh) by the command of Allah, a caliph to Allah to stand his stance. And the request of that group from the prophet of Allah Ismael to appoint for them a king is evidence and a compelling argument for the doctrine of God’s governance or supremacy.

Joshua pbuh (Yousha’) calls for the supremacy of Allah:

Joshua (or Yusha’ as is his name in the Torah) is the vicegerent of Moses (pbuh) who was calling for the supremacy of Allah and was reminding his people that it is an obligation that they obey him, as he is the one appointed by Allah and with a statement from Moses (pbuh). He is the executor of the jurisprudence of Allah and his commands. His people acknowledge that to him:

Gospel of Joshua – chapter 1:

(1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying…… 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying…. 12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, ……….. 16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses. 18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.)

Glad tidings of establishing the supremacy of Allah upon the Earth in the End Times:

The prophets and the messengers (pbut) came, giving glad tidings of a day when the supremacy of Allah upon the earth would be applied and the divine just state would be established in the End Times, that time known by the reign of Satan and the tyrants. The prophets(pbut) have clarified that the one whom shall establish it is the Savior and the redeemer. And the Torah is full of such texts which will be examined when looking at the proofs Sayyed Ahmad Al-Hassan (pbuh) brings forth from the wills of the prophets (pbut). Here, we mention some examples from the New Testament:

· John (pbuh) gives glad tidings of the establishment of the supremacy of Allah upon the earth in the End Times:

(1:3 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2:3 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight) – Mathew – chapter 3

· And after John (pbuh), Jesus (pbuh) gives glad tidings of the establishment of the supremacy of Allah:

In the Gospel of Mathew – chapter 4:

(17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand….. 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.)

· And Jesus (pbuh) commanded his disciples and the believers in him who would come after him to pray for the coming of the divine rulership upon the earth:

In the Gospel of Mathew – Chapter 6:

(9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.)

And after Jesus, the glad tiding continued on of the coming and approaching of the divine just state through the messengers of Jesus whom he charged to do so:

In the Gospel of Mathew – Chapter 10:

(5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded themsaying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.)

We shall suffice with that much of texts. They are very many so whomever wants more shall go over the Torah and the Bible.
