Biblical Prophesy fulfilled by Islam!

Tower of Babble

by Ibn Anwar

  According to the Bible the world was once united by ONE common language , “the whole earth was of one language and of one speech.” (Gen 11:1). However, this status quo changed over night in the famous incident of the “Tower of Babylon” wherein humanity wanted to see God, so they built an exceedingly high tower to reach Him. In recipcoration of their arrogance, God punished them by putting a curse on them i.e. speaking many different languages which led to confusion and chaos, hence stopping them from completing the tower. This is the story found in Genesis 11. Accordingly, we are still afflicted with this curse because each society today boasts a unique language of its own. However, there is a verse in the Old Testament which says that this curse will be lifted :

“For then will I turn to the people a pure language that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one consent.” (Zaphaniah 3:9)

In addition, the word language in the above verse is “saphah” in Hebrew which according to Strong’s Concordance number 8193 has three meanings namely, lip(as body part), language, geography(side, edge, shore, border).

Therefore, Zapahaniah 3:9 can be alternatively translated as,”For then will I turn the people to one direction(geography, side) that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one consent.” In simple terms, God will unite people to a single direction.

Christians for the past 2000 years have never fulfilled this prophecy. In fact, they are babbling away in no less than 2000 different languages which is evident in their recitation of the Bible in 2000 different languages in many different versions.

There are now over 2,000 languages in which at least one book of the Bible has been published. Although this figure represents less than half of the languages and dialects presently in use in the world, it nonetheless includes the primary vehicles of communication of well over 90 per cent of the world’s population” http://www.biblesociety.org/latestnews/latest273-slr2003.html

Clearly, the Christians are still living the curse of Genesis 11.

This prophecy, however, curious as it may sound is fulfilled by no other than Islam. The Qur’an removes the curse of the Tower of Babbel by inspiring its adherents to commune with God and worship Him in one unified pure language that is Arabic. The Muslims today, Arab or otherwise are united in the sense that they call upon God IN ONE CONSENT, which is a direct fulfillment of Zapahaniah 3:9. In addition, that language which is described as pure is also fulfilled whereby the Qur’an says:

“A lecture in Arabic, containing no crookedness(pure) that haply they may ward off(evil).”(Qur’an 39:28)

Last but not least, Islam fulfills the alternate meaning of Zaphaniah 3:9 in the sense of geography and direction i.e. Muslims today when worshipping face one single common direction which is Mecca. The Christians on the other hand face different disorganised directions.

In conclusion, Islam removes the curse of Babylon whilst Christianity lives it. Alhamdulillah, Islam is the TRUTH!
