comment Is Hebrew the mother of all languages spoken today in the world?
@Eytan Yammer The difference between the Shakesperean age and the modern English age is hardly 500 years. But if you talk about the Hebrew of Torah, or the language that Abraham, Yitzhak, Yishmael and Yaakov(may peace and blessing be upon all of them) used to speak then the time difference is so huge. That really makes me feel to doubt if the modern Hebrew or Yiddish is close enough to convey the full meaning of what message the scriptures would convey. Also what is Judeo Arabic or Ladino? Thankyou for adding so much to my information.

But what is really the assurance or guarantee that Hebrew language spoken today is the same Hebrew Abraham (may peace and blessings be upon him) used to speak? Also how much of Yiddish is classical Hebrew? Thanks for the information. :)

This is where the difference in moral guidelines lie! You being a Jew can only recoginze Jews as your brothers. While in Islam, everyone being the children of Adam belong to the same fraternity. You can lend us money on interest but Islam forbids us to lend money to you or anyone on interest!

comment Ethical business dealings
This question had been very interesting and informative if complete details had been posted including the contract details. I would ask the asker to rephrase this question, add detail and repost it.

You are confusing between "Judaism" and "Zionism" when you say that "Jewishness is a matter of national identity". Can you tell me how a Jew who practices the basic rules of morality via Islam fails his duty as a Jew? Do you know that usury or interest on loan is completely forbidden in Islam while Jews allow it for the non-jews to pay them interest so what do you say about that? Where are the jewish moral guidelines now?

comment Is it permissible for a Jewish woman to marry a Muslim man and vice versa?
All the 7 Laws of Noah are completely observant for person to be a practising Muslim in Islam. Thngs like Idolatory, Theft, Murder, Sexual Immorality, Blasphemy, Eating flesh of an alive animal and Establising courts of law are what Islam has emphasized from day 1! FYI: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noachide_Laws FYI: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Shari%27a. So according to you if a Muslim whose mother was a Jew is also a Jew..is it? A person who is an atheist si also a jew just because this person has a Jewish mother...is it? How?

Isn't this sexism? You are prefering a woman over a man for carrying religious identity. Why? Where it is written in the Torah that a person whose mother is a jew happens to be a jew? Please explain

comment Why was the “Ark of the Covenant” lost?
@HodofHod "According to some traditional interpretations of the Book of Exodus,[2] Book of Numbers,[3] and the Letter to the Hebrews[4] the Ark also contained Aaron's rod, a jar of manna and the first Torah scroll as written by Moses" is stated in Wikipedia. How can you say that "The Ark did not contain any of Moshe's or Aharon's personal objects"? FYI: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ark_of_the_Covenant

@Seth J Thanks for updating me. So Talmud being a text central to Jewish mainstream, should be able to pinpoint the exact location and the Ark should have been found by now! Why it is still hidden?

Can you please quote from an authentic historical text? How do we know that the Ark was buried by the king in Jerusalem?

I see! Then why Abraham(the first Jew according to Judaism) had sexual relations with Hagar who happened to be among the gentiles? Please explain.

@Monica Cellio What makes the God controversial between a Jew and a Muslim? As far as i know both worship the same omnipotent, one single God. FYI: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/14461/…

comment Is there any difference between Jewish G-d and Muslim G-d?
@YDK What about the notion of being a Jew and not believing in God at the same time, only because you are born to a Jewish mother or Jewish parents! So an atheist can also be a jew only because that person is born to jewish paresnt(s)! How?This is notion is something entirely based on racism. Do correct me if this is wrong. On the other hand Islam makes mandatory for every Muslim to believe in one God and to respect all the prohpets form Adam to Muhammad (May peace and blessings be upon all of them).

The first man who is claimed to be a Jew by the Jews was not practicing Judaism in its entireity! How and what? What about Moses (may peace and blessings be upon him)? And what made him a devout Jew? Also why the term "Yehudi" is not mentioned in the Hebrew Bible?

You can never say "he may have indeed faced Jerusalem", because if he had done that then the Hebrew Bible must have mentioned about it.
