Allah and Elohim - Are they the Same God? Part 21

Honor your father and your mohter!

Exodus 20:12, "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you."

This is one of the commandments of God which God gave to Moses. Out of the ten commandments this is one. How much importance God gave to relationship and family life. Family life is instituted by God and God wants that our homes may be God centered with godly children who fear God. And in this commandment God says to children, "honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you."

Bible tells us about the sons of priest Eli in 1 Sam 2:12, "Now the sons of Eli were corrupt; they did not know the LORD." And further the Bible says that they used to take the meat which were to be offered to God. They lay with the women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. When Eli heard all these things, he tried to tell them that it is not right. But they did not heed to the voice of their father as we read in 1 Sam 2:25 "If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?" Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them."

Sons of Eli did not heed to the voice of their father but they did what they wanted and we see the consequences of their sin. They had no blessing in their lives and they died a miserable death. Bible tells us that the Israelites fought with Philistine and could not prevail against them and the ark of God was captured; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, died. Also we read further that when Eli heard all these things and heard that the Ark of God was captured, he fell from his seat and died. Not only that, his daughter-in-law, Phinehas' wife who was with child and due to be delivered; when she heard the news that the ark of God was captured, and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she also died.

We see the consequences due to the sin of Eli's sons how God's judgment came upon the whole family just because they did not obey their father. Yes, my friend God wants you to raise your children in His fear and in discipline so that they obey their parents. And when it happens His blessings will come upon you and your children. He will give long life and satisfy with all goodness.

But when we come to Quran we see that the pattern of marriage is changed in Quran. Instead of marrying one woman, Quran says that you can marry 4 women and keep as many concubines as we read in

An-Nisa (Women)

Sura 4:3 If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.

Marriage is no longer a sacred act according to Quran as Allah gave permission to marry more than one woman. When marriage is not a sacred act and not between one man and one woman then how the children will obey their parents?

God of the Bible gave clear instruction saying, "that you must honor your mother and father so that you may live long in the land which He gives you." But we find that in Quran that there is no instruction of honoring mother and father. We read a few of the commandments in this Quranic verses but still there is no sign of the commandment of honoring our mother and father.

She That Is To Be Examined, Examining Her

Sura 60:12 O Prophet! When believing women come to thee to take the oath of fealty to thee, that they will not associate in worship any other thing whatever with Allah, that they will not steal, that they will not commit adultery (or fornication), that they will not kill their children, that they will not utter slander, intentionally forging falsehood, and that they will not disobey thee in any just matter,- then do thou receive their fealty, and pray to Allah for the forgiveness (of their sins): for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

If Allah is the same God of the Bible then the question is, "why Allah did not give this commandment which He gave to Moses written by His own finger?" Did He forget what He gave to His people a few centuries back? Why He should change the pattern of marriage? In my opinion there is no other reason but Allah is not Elohim/Yahweh God who gave commandments for our benefit and for our blessings. But Allah tried to destroy and tear off our family lives. Allah tried to make division among husband and wife and children. So Allah is in no way God of the Bible.
