Who is mikhail in islam
Islam, Muhammad, and the Koran: A documented analysis by Labib MikhailToday I had the displeasure of coming across Islam: Muhammad and the Koran (A Documented Analysis). This is written by Dr. Labib Mikhail and is set forth as a learned scholar who has studied Christianity and Islam and lectures as such. However, it is clear from his resume and his introduction to the book that he is biased and not seeking to research and display Islam itself and then perhaps compare it to Christianity. His goal is definitely to tell you why Islam is a fraud. While I realize such writing is nearly commonplace the title makes you wish to believe it is well researched, footnoted, and done with a good faith analysis of Islam. However, many of his debatable points come from a politicized tafsir (basically using opinion of the translation to try to show its deeper meaning; it rather reminds me of a Talmud scholar though through my encounters, the Talmud scholar keeps leniency and open-mindedness; mostly because its generally an oral tradition - you dont have to write down your stance and have it set in stone; after all, we are not God.) of the Quran and tries to pass as actual translation.
He enjoys citing this many times without putting it in context.
He also opens his text about not being able to find the lineage of Muhammad. He then displays how we can see the lineage of Moses and Jesus. Moses, picked out from so many tribes and so many unconfirmable names birthed by people in their hundreds of years and led by men fathering illigitimate children through slaves/concubines. Then shows that we know Jesus pure whereabouts b/c Gabriel... an angel... comes and says God/Juno impregnates a woman. So the child of a married woman who had an affair with a deity is a fine origin for a prophet and even a son of God. However, for Muhammad, with an upbringing said to be of an orphan, that is simply not good enough. Then, sourcing a biography on Muhammad from 758 AD, he says he found that Muhammads family were idolaters and even encouraged, through his great grandfather, brought together 369 idols to put in a shrine in Mecca.
The point being driven is that Muhammad is from an unpure family (i.e. two humans, like Moses, but without names for humility or general unimportance is obviously horrible religious practice) who were pagan (thanks Christian scholars for another everyone versus us word). The point that should be given is that Muhammad, with the same monotheistic deity that Christians and the Jewish people share, struggled out of his familys beliefs to find his one true God and he, in fact, tried to convert people to see his vision of one God.
If this is just the first section of trying to prove research of Islam then the rest of the book is most likely to be a further tug of war with twisted outlooks arming Christianity with all the muscle and the Islamic sect to hold the meek. Watch out though, indignation could help them take over the world if the meek are to inherit the earth.
What are the duties of Mikail (Michael)? Did he see and talk to the Prophet (pbuh)?
Mikail is one of the four great angels. He is the angel that supervises natural events, human beings, animals, plants, sustenance and rain. His name is mentioned once in the Quran:. Allah is an enemy to those who reject faith. Angels and spiritual beings are the inhabitants of the country of the sky. The Prophet pbuh saw and talked to Hz.

Naming the baby with western or nonmuslim name will make others get impression that he is not muslim. That happened to me and kinda hurt :. Besides, I have heard classical story that in judgement day, Allah will call us with our earthly names given by our parents. So it will be better if we give our children good Islamic names that won't embarass either us or our children in front of Allah. It is Arabic spelling of "Michael".
Islam teaches that the angel Michael has played significant roles in human history. However, most of the information about Michael is not in the Quran, but Islamic tradition, which contains far more extensive accounts of Michael's angelic duties. According to Muslim religious scholars, the angel Michael not only assisted Muhammad in fulfilling his spiritual mission, but he continues to provide sustenance and insight to people today.

In other Protestant churches, he is simply called "Archangel Michael". Michael is mentioned three times in the Book of Daniel. The idea that Michael was the advocate of the Jews became so prevalent that, in spite of the rabbinical prohibition against appealing to angels as intermediaries between God and his people, Michael came to occupy a certain place in the Jewish liturgy. In the Epistle of Jude Michael is specifically referred to as "the archangel Michael". Catholic sanctuaries to Michael appeared in the 4th century, when he was first seen as a healing angel, and then over time as a protector and the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil. The prophet Daniel experiences a vision after having undergone a period of fasting. Daniel describes Daniel's vision of an angel who identifies Michael as the protector of Israel.
