We will dwell into a little bit of historical facts for the purpose of this write up. It is a known fact that Ishmael and Isaac are of the same offspring. It is also a statement of fact that Sarah gave her maid Haggai to Abraham as wife when she was unable to conceive. Forget the inspiration to interpret what the bible says, we know Abraham never called Haggai his wife. Abraham casted out Haggai and her son Ishmael on Sarah’s instruction backed up by God when Haggai started misbehaving. We are also aware that this does not go down well with Abraham. All the aforementioned confirm Ishmael son ship right to Abraham. Before the departure of Haggai and Ishmael into the desert or wilderness, whatever, Abraham makes sure he got food and water for his wife and son.
What happened when the mother and child are in the wilderness also corroborate that God Himself accepted the son ship right of Ishmael to his father Abraham. He did this when He rescued the mother and child from dying of thirsty by providing well water for them through which they were able to quench their thirst. God also made a pronouncement that he will make a nation out of Ishmael. He went on to inform Haggai that He had seen that she was treated badly and for this the child she is carrying will help her out. So in essence God did proclaim the type of person Ishmael will be right before he was conceived. As a freedom fighter if you ask. Please read your bible very well and tell me the literary meaning of God’s statement regarding this. God recognized the fact that Haggai was badly treated. The question is by whom? Is it by Sarah? Or is it by Abraham? One needs God’s wisdom and understanding to interprete this bearing in mind that God himself gave backing to Sarah’s instruction concerning this.
When Abraham died at the ripe age of one hundred and seventy five, it was Ishmael and his brother Isaac that gave their father Abraham a befitting burial.
Let us now trace the genealogy of Ishmael and Isaac. It has been established and widely acclaimed that Prophet Mohammed (SAW) who is the progenitor of Islamic religion came directly from the Ishmael descendant. While Jesus, Al Masih in Arabic language (ASAW) who is the progenitor of Christianity came from the descendant of Isaac. All these are established facts. This goes to show that both Jesus and Mohammed are blood brothers. This singular fact made all their followers brothers and sisters; this is what this has confined on all who believe in them and their teachings.
In Galatians chapter five where Apostle Paul made reference to this historical facts. He did refer Haggai as a bonded woman and Sarah as the free woman. He went ahead to claim that Haggai can be likened to Mount Sinai which represents Saudi Arabia  of today and Sarah represent Jerusalem. To my own understanding Paul made all this interpretation based on his own spiritual understanding of the whole events as it is espoused in the Old Testament.
I would want anyone that care to listen to impress it on everybody that it has come to a stage we have to put a stop to the trend whereby religion is used to fan the ember of discord in the world. This ugly trend has to stop. The two religions preach peace. Why hiding in it to perpetrate evil. There is no place inside the Bible and Quran where God approve of violent and senseless killings.Infact this act is condemn out rightly in all its entirety. Unfortunately this is what we now experienced these days among the practitioners of the two religions. People should stop hiding the cloak of religion to cause confusion all over the world.
I would have loved to expatiate further on this, but I have to abide by the teaching of the Holy books. God does not make a judge on this issue, so I recognized the fact that I can not pass judgement.I belief God himself will at appointed time judge everyone that is using religion to foment trouble all over the world has He deem fit. Most practitioners of this religion are hypocrite; they failed to see the log in their own eyes while accusing their fellow human being of wrongdoings. It’s only God that can judge some of you. Some of you have used your antics and evil ways to misled people. Unfortunately most people are cowed and afraid to speak out. I made bold to claim that some of them are worse than some people that we tagged as been violent in the society.
There is no justification for the recent killing of the Pakistan Governor .How do you explains it? Just because the man refused to conform to the statusquo by supporting the authority to pass death sentence on a Christian woman accused of blasphemy against the holy Prophet Mohammed. This is my point with these practitioners of this religion. I doubt if they do read these Books they profess to believe in. There was no place in the Bible where any killings on the accusation of blasphemy was suported.Even Jesus that was killed based on this did not want to die, but he allowed it to happen just to fulfill the prophecy. Though Quran believed he ascended to heaven before the killing take place. The person that was killed was definitely not Jesus. Quran was emphatic on this that on no occasion must a Muslim kill his fellow man unless mistakenly. Penalties for these offences were spelt out. Quran did say that on no account must children be killed for lack of wealth. Allah said he will always provide for us. Unfortunately this entire barbaric act now pervades our entire life, all in the name of religion.History has shown that most of these people that claimed that they are religion leaders are mostly perverters,paranoid and schizophrenic.  May God help us from these hypocrites.
According to Quran, a good Muslim must have belief in all God’s prophet and their books. So a good Muslim must desist from critizing the word inside bible blindly. We recognized the fact that there are some areas where there are some differences, all we need is understanding to accommodate each others ideas, beliefs and interpretations on these areas. Muslims and Christians that have gone on holy pilgrimage to Mecca and Jerusalem can attest to the fact that there is no much difference, apart from the mode of worship.
So Israel, Pakistan, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Nigeria, United State of America and all nation of the world that have experienced one form of terrorist acts in the name of religion should please wake up and let us sheath our hatchet and call off the bluff of any Political leader, religion leader or any leader of sorts that might wants to use religion as a tool to cause disunity and war among the nations of the world.
Thank you.
