Technically Moses did, and Moses heard from Yahweh, so Yahweh did, and Jesus is Yahweh, so Jesus did !!! 🙂
9 “‘If a priest’s daughter defiles herself by becoming a prostitute, she disgraces her father; she must be burned in the fire.
This goes against the authentic hadith:
It was narrated from ‘Ikrimah that ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) burned some people. News of that reached Ibn ‘Abbaas and he said:If it were me, I would not have burned them, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:“Do not punish with the punishment of Allah.” And I would have executed them as the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever changes his religion, then execute him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3017).
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) sent us on a mission and said: “If you find So and so, and So and so, then burn them with fire.” Then the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, when we were about to leave: “I had commanded you to burn So and so, and So and so. But verily no one punishes with fire except Allah. So if you find them, execute them.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3016)

“……by the time of Jerome, ignorant readers, imagining the Tetragrammaton to be a Greek word, actually pronounced it ‘Pipi‘!”
The New World Translation uses the name Jehovah 237 times in the New Testament where the extant texts use only the Greek words kurios (Lord) and theos(God).

If one believes there is such a thing as Yahweh-derived theophoric names, then you would have no choice but to agree that the pagan god Baal is Yahweh. Let us examine the following name in the Bible:
1 Chronicles 12 New International Version (NIV)
Warriors Join David
12 These were the men who came to David at Ziklag, while he was banished from the presence of Saul son of Kish (they were among the warriors who helped him in battle; 2 they were armed with bows and were able to shoot arrows or to sling stones right-handed or left-handed; they were relatives of Saul from the tribe of Benjamin):
3 Ahiezer their chief and Joash the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; Jeziel and Pelet the sons of Azmaveth; Berakah, Jehu the Anathothite, 4 and Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty warrior among the Thirty, who was a leader of the Thirty; Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, Jozabad the Gederathite,[a] 5 Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah and Shephatiah
Now let us focus on this particular figure, who said to be one of the warriors who helped David:
Some Christians claim that the Greek word Kyrios/Kurios is a direct translation of the Hebrew name Yahweh, because the word does not appear openly in the Greek New Testament; instead the word Kyrios/Kurios is used. In essence they are claiming that every occurrence of the word Kyrios/Kurios is a placeholder for Yahweh.
So let us use Christian “logic” and say for the sake of argument that this is true. Now how do we explain the following verse:
Thus Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord [kurios] (1 Peter 3:6).
Is Abraham Yahweh?
“Who were the Phoenicians ?” by Dr Nissim Raphael Ganor , and he mentions the following regarding Yahweh/Yehova-derived theophoricnames (page 203-210):
Herewith we will see why it is impossible to accept the conjecture that the names assumed theophoric derive from the name ‘Yehova’ (the Tetragrammaton) and then we will discuss the meaning of the names themselves.
An article worthy of reblogging.
Critics of Islam have gone so low that they have started malicious attacks on Allah, calling him a ‘deceiver’. When these Missionaries have no legs to stand on, to refute Islamic Doctrine, they resort to lies to degrade Islam. I for one would not even be bothered to write something like this, but due missionary lies I am writing this article to show/prove Yahweh is a deceiver. YHWH admits, says: “he deceives people” and even Prophets in the Old Testament speak of Yahweh being a deceiver. There are 5 verses I will present that YHWH is a deceiver. I will also provide commentary by experts on each verse I present from the Old Testament on what the passages mean.
Yahweh Deceives Verse 1
Jeremiah 4:10 Then I said, “Ah, Sovereign LORD, how completely you have deceived this people and Jerusalem by saying, ‘You will have peace,’ when the sword is at…

Wow, well done
My apologies for the poor quality of the images taken on my iPhone earlier. These are taken from the invaluable scholarly resource A Man Attested by God: The Human Jesus of the Synoptic Gospels by Dr J.R. Daniel Kirk. Many Jewish figures are called ‘God’ in the Jewish scriptures and other non-canonical Jewish writings, disproving the often made Christian claim (by Richard Bauckham for example) that these titles (and their roles) are the exclusive preserve of God Himself. In the Bible and in the DSS they are not.
Many claim that Joseph is a theophoric-name rooted in the word Yahweh, meaning “Yahweh will Add” instead of “He will Add”. Now we know that the name Yahweh was first revealed to Moses:
Exodus 6:3 English Standard Version
I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD(Yahweh) I did not make myself known to them.
If the name Yahweh was first revealed to Moses, and Moses came after the Prophet Joseph, how can Joseph be “Yahweh will Add”.?
And so when the New Testament uses the word “Lord”, it is not clear if it is referring to someone (God, or man) as Yahweh or Adonai. As we know the regular “Lord”/Adonai can not only be used for God, but also for someone who is considered master, superior, King etc. (Like when Sarah refers to Abraham as Lord).
Just to reiterate, the New Testament refers to God as “Lord” (Kyrios). Is that his personal name (Yahweh) or just designation of Lord(Adonai) ?
This not only shows the lack of importance of the name Yahweh, within the early Christian community. It also puts into question, whether the God of the Old Testament was ever called Yahweh in the first place?
