Who was Bahira?



Brubaker answers a viewer question about “the Legend of Sergius Baḥīrā,” a 2009 book by Barbara Roggema. He uses the occasion to give a wider reflection on the topic, to show a variety of biographies of Muhammad, and to discuss the biblical context or framework of some of the details that exist in the Bahira account, both in the Biography of Muhammad by Ibn Iṣḥaq / Ibn Hisham, and also in the later Syriac and Arabic recensions published by Roggema.

  1. People….. you should watch "Blogging theology" videos to know the truth. That priest provide word with perfect evidence😊😊😊😊😊

  2. You should learn arabic perfect translation first. You are doing wrong translation and misleading people.😑😑😑😑

  3. Sir respect ✊ and appreciate your efforts and scholarship.
    But I don’t think the Quran will ever be as contradictory as the bible nor as confusing.

    Kindest regards to u

  4. Thankyou for this gentle presentation. Do you not subscribe to a much later date for the Book of Daniel being written retrospectively from the period when Seleucid/Early Roman persecutions were beginning to affect the Jewish people?

  5. I have been waiting for someone to go into the story/history of Bahira? I have always wanted to know more about this guy. Thank you. I'd love to know more about Waraqa also (and his possible impact on the Quran).

  6. JESUS IS NOT GOD OF CHRISTIANS.
    JESUS DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING CHRISTIANITY.
    THERE IS NO VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT PROVES THAT JESUS IS GOD OF CHRISTIANS.
    THERE IS NO RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JESUS AND CHRISTIANITY.
    JESUS ONLY HAS A VERY CLEAR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

    MATTHEW 15:24
    But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of ISRAEL.

    JESUS WAS BORN TO BE A LEADER WHO WILL SHEPHERD THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, NOT SHEPHERD CHRISTIANS.

    MATTHEW 2:6
    And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people ISRAEL.

    JESUS ONLY SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, JESUS NEVER SPOKE TO CHRISTIANS.

    MARK 12:29
    And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments, Hear, O ISRAEL; The Lord our God is one Lord.

    JESUS IS THE SAVIOUR OF THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, JESUS IS NOT THE SAVIOUR OF CHRISTIANS.
    THERE IS NO VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT STATES THAT JESUS IS THE SAVIOUR OF CHRISTIANS.

    ACTS 13:23
    Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto ISRAEL A SAVIOUR, JESUS.

    ALL OF JESUS' ACTIVITIES RECORDED IN THE BIBLE WERE WITH THE ISRAELITES, NEVER WITH CHRISTIANS.

    TRY TO SHOW A VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT PROVES THAT JESUS IS A CHRISTIAN GOD OR A VERSE THAT DESCRIBES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JESUS AND CHRISTIANS.

  7. IT IS BULLSHIT WHO SAYS: JESUS VOLUNTARILY SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS TO ATONE FOR HUMAN SINS.
    THE TRUE IS JESUS WAS ARRESTED BY STRATAGEM AND SENTENCED TO DEATH BY WAY OF CRUCIFIXION BY THE CHIEF PRIEST AND THE ELDERS OF THE JEWISH NATION.
    READ:
    MATTHEW 26:1-5
    LUKE 22:44

    MATTHEW 26:38
    Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

    ACTS 2 : 22-24
    22. Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
    23. Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
    24. Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

  8. Dr.Brubaker, Just want to point out to you couple of things here. Certain Muslim scholars totally rejected this tale of Bahira. Allama Shibli Nomani of old India and I think even Moulana Akram Nadwii of Cambridge too rejected this tradition as false or Fabricated in Muhammad's case. And another thing is that one of the sirah/biography book you've introduced here was by S.M Hasan al Banna – and you said the author was the founder of Muslim Brotherhood. But he is not. Actually, this S.M Hasan al Banna, who authored that book- 'The sirah of the final prophet' is a totally different person. He is still alive and of  Bangladeshi origin. He is also the founder of Awakening publishing company. And there is another book you've introduced was – The Sealed Nectar or Ar-Raheeq Al Makhtoom, – the award winning book, which won the best biography of the prophet – in 1977 because of its extensive use of narrations/hadiths. The competition was conducted at the time by the Dominant Wahhabi/Salafi dominant judges. So you know what it means when they say "award winning"….the author a Wahhabi, the judges wahhabis too, the sources were all Wahhabi selected….

  9. This monk bahira was mentioned in the story wrote by Ibn Ishaq. And what brubaker failed to mention was whether the story is authentic or not.

    Imam Al Zahabi, one of the great scholars of hadith said in his book Tarikh Al Islam ; the story about bahira and the prophet Muhammad was very problematic in terms of its Isnad or narration and it was not historically accurate. Ibn Ishaq did not mention any narrator or source from which he had received the story. Rather he wrote himself that he had taken the information of the story from people whose names he has not disclosed.

    Ibn Ishaq is a good storyteller, but not branded as trustworthy in terms of hadith narration. This was confirmed by many Great Hadith Scholars such as Imam Al Bukhari, Ibn Taimiyah, Imam Malik and Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal.

    Im not surprised this story was brought up again and again by the western orientalist such as mr brubaker here. Islamic scholars has already answered similar allegation towards the Prophet. This is all lies, and the lies was already answered beautifully.

    You guys dont have any brand new idea to go against Islam? Try again lol

  10. Bahira is undoubtedly crazy and fancied himself as a Danial, Ezekiel and John who has a false vision on the false Sinai. Did Bahira live before or after Mohamad, or maybe he was a time traveler. It is much easier to prophesy things that have already happened; or things that were imagined to happen.

  11. imaginary non-christian (pseudo-christian) "monk" telling a tall tale of imaginary young muhammad… written over a century AFTER real muhammad died

    hilarious nonsense (a silly, but passable tale for those who never knew muhammad till centuries later)

    the ONLY pseudo-christians who actually knew Muhammad directly were Khadijah and Waraqah, both Roman Catholics, who had earliest control and influence over muhammad's being groomed as a puppet-prophet of a re-arranged synthesis of arabic paganism, pagan catholicism and pagan Judaism

    the true details are lost once Khadijah and Waraqah died.

    nobody knows how many others amongst muhammad's contemporary "companions" were in on the mentoring of muhammad which continue where Khadijah and Waraqah left off.

  12. Pot calling kettle black 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏽🤦‍♀️🙇‍♂️🙇🙇🏻‍♀️

  13. Interesting. I'm not sure if you're familiar with British author Tom Holland, but he wrote the book In the Shadow of the Sword which, I believe, is the only major work that tackles Islamic history from a historical-critical analysis and is designed for the non-specialist reader. Anyway, I just found your channel and it looks like you have a lot of great content!

  14. It's almost been a month dr. Brubaker, where is your rebuttal to Dr. Altikulac's book? He basically says your work is a lot of crap.
