Similarity between a Bible verse and a Hadith
« on: March 21, 2017, 11:39:49 PM »
As-salam Alaykum,
I noticed a similarity between a verse in the Bible and a Hadith. Any Explanation for this ?


Sahl bin Sa'd (May Allah be pleased with him) said:
I was in the company of the Prophet (ﷺ). He gave a description of Jannah and concluded with these words, "There will be bounties which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human heart has ever perceived." He (ﷺ) then recited this Verse: "Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Rubb in fear and hope, and they spend (in charity in Allah's Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy..." (32:16,17)

------------------

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, and upon the heart of man has not come up that which God has prepared for those who love him.”

Wa alykum wa salam brother Ahmad

In my humble opinion, I would not doubt that this could of been said by prophet Muhammad(pbuh). To think prophet Muhammad did not have any knowledge about the previous Scriptures after or during the Quran was being revealed to him is unwarranted. Did someone narrate this hadith correctly? Possibly. Do we know for certainty? Possibly not.

I find neither the hadith nor the Biblical verse you mentioned shed any tension on the verses of the Quran.

It actually maybe confirmed by the Quran by that heaven is unseen, still an abode for the believers who love the Lord.

Salam :)

Brother Hamzeh while I support your opinion above, I would like to know the reason why you wrote:

" To think prophet Muhammad did not have any knowledge about the previous Scriptures after or during the Quran was being revealed to him is unwarranted."


We know from the Quran that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was Ummi. I'm not saying illiterate, I'm saying he was "ummi". Brother Joseph talked about this in:

http://quransmessage.com/articles/was%20the%20prophet%20muhammad%20really%20illiterate%20FM3.htm

I also don't think he had any knowledge about the previous scriptures.

"And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path." (42:52)

"And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt." (29:48)


So why do you think he could have knowledge about the previous Scriptures ? Can you elaborate on this ?

Wa alykum assalam brother Ilker

Thank you for your comments.

If you notice the verses you kindly quoted they are speaking about before he became a prophet of God.

I stated that after or during his ministry sometime he might of possibly been familiar with the previous scriptures. Please see verse below

32:23 "And certainly We gave Moses the Scripture, so do not be in doubt encountering it / coming face to face with it /  meeting it (Arabic: liqaihi) and We made it a guide for the Children of Israel"

Peace
