Rev. David Benjamin Keldani (1867-19xx)


Rev. David Benjamin Keldani
Court of Pustaka A.
"My conversion to Islam cannot be attributed to any cause other than the gracious direction of the Almighty Allah. Without this Divine guidance all learning, search and other efforts to find the Truth may even lead one astray. The moment I believed in the Absolute Unity of God, His holy Apostle Muhammad became the pattern of my conduct and behavior."
Prof. Keldani, a former Catholic bishop, accepted Islam in 1904 and adopted a Muslim name 'Abdul-Ahad Dawud'. The above quote is taken from his scholarly work Muhammad in the Bible. An expert in Biblical scripts and languages, Prof. Keldani published many scholarly papers on the Bible and Christianity prior to his becoming a Muslim. His Muhammad in the Bible is rich with deep analysis and although published originally many decades ago, has remained today without a parallel on this topic in both originality and scholarship.
