Ah I see, this is another one of those cases were Mulsims say that the Scriptures were changed.
They claim that Ismael and not Isaac, was Abraham’s sacrificial son.
Its interesting that the Quran claims that the jews were —favoured above all other nations.
We encountered a muslim who argued that they were favoured because they obeyed Allahs law.
There is nothing wrong with this argument.
Yet the verses say
Children of Israel! call to mind the favour which I bestowed upon you, and that** I preferred you to all others.** (Surah 2:47 repeated in 2:122)
Remember Moses said to his people: "O my people! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you, when He produced prophets among you, made you kings, and** gave you what He had not given to any other among the peoples.**(Surah 5:21)
We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment, Inflicted by Pharaoh, for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.** And We chose them aforetime above the nations, knowingly,** (Surah 44:30-32)
We did aforetime grant to the Children of Israel the Book the Power of Command, and Prophethood; We gave them, for Sustenance, things good and pure; and** We favoured them above the nations.** (Surah 45:16)
Now muslims would have us believe that the jews broke this covenant with God.
And therefore they fell from favour, and the muslims were chosen to replace them.
This argument would work well, if Allah was refering to jews personally, But He is not, He is referring to the jewish nation.
How can Allah be choosing the Jewish Nation above all others?
When Islam says that the covenant was made with all descendants of Abraham?
Does Allah show favoritism?
