The Hijaz Torah

Muhammad Mustafa Mansour

Al Intishar




The Hijaz Torah develops three notions that radically challenge the entirety of Western Biblical studies:

1- The Umm al-Qura and its environs are the holy land that God provided to Abraham and not Palestine.

2 - The Israelites were defunct Arabs believing in the Hanifiyas, then in the law of Moses, and in the disbelief - after the conquest of Nebuchadnezzar. They finally became Muslims with Muhammad. Most of the Jews today, including those in Palestine, do not belong to Abraham according to studies of nucleic acids.

3- The texts of the Torah, mainly the tablets of the covenant of Moses, were written in an ancient Arabic language, which was the first dialect of the Kinānas, who inhabited Tihama al-Hijaz since the 3rd millennium B.C. The texts were written in Jazm script which contradicts the dictation of Sibawayh's writing rules.

Kamal Al-Salibi, who had an exceptional understanding of the Torah, enable Muhammad Mansour to reconsider its language and geography. He revealed the greatness of the Arabs history, which is indispensable to understand the present of the Arab nation and the vitality of its heritage.
