1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 34
18 May 2014
SURAH 34: Saba' (Sheba)
(Saba' - also written as Sabah - was a country approximately where Yemen is today)
001 "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying, thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free and captives - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we personally believe in the demands and deeds. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities, not from propaganda.
002 34/1a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a above, and see if you agree.
003 34/1b: "- - - Allah, to whom belongs all things in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved.
004 34/1e: "- - - to Him (Allah*) be praised in the Hereafter - - -". Only possible if he exists and is something supernatural (beware that it will be possible for followers to praise him even if he in case belongs to the dark forces).
005 34/1g: “- - - He (Allah*) is full of Wisdom - - -“. Well, his words in the Quran proves that something is wrong, because this book is full of mistakes, contradictions, twisted arguments, claims based on thin air, invalid logic and even some outright lies (like “miracles will make no-one believe anyhow”), plus f.x. lots of unclear language. If he is full of wisdom, he did not make the Quran - too many mistakes, etc.
006 34/1h: "- - - He (Allah*) is - - - acquainted with all things". A warning - do not try to cheat. But also a promise - real or not - about good things for good Muslims . Plus see 2/233h above.
But if he is acquainted with all things, he was not involved in the making or delivery of a book as full of errors, etc. as the Quran.
007 34/2a: "He (Allah*) knows all that goes into the earth, and all that comes out thereof; all that comes down from the sky and all that ascends thereto - - -". Nice claims. But where is the documentation? - words are cheap.
008 34/2b: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Most Merciful, the Oft-Forgiving". Please read:
The surahs from Medina - they are youngest and abrogate much from the Mecca surahs.
The immoral parts of the Muslim code of moral.
The immoral and/or unjust of the sharia laws.
If you still agree to the claim above, please contact a psychologist - you need it.
009 34/2c: "- - - He (Allah*) - - - the Oft-Forgiving". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and is a god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
010 34/3j: "- - - from Whom (Allah*) is not hidden the least - - -". If he exists and is a god (if he exists among the dark forces, one may presume that some things are hidden from him).
011 34/3k: "- - - from Whom (Allah*) is not hidden the least little atom in the heavens (plural and wrong*) or on earth - - -". !): Often claimed, never proved. 2): Remember that words are cheap. 3): See 2/233h above.
012 34/3m: "- - - Record Perspicuous". Why does an omniscient god need a record?/p>
013 34/4d: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
014 34/4e: "- - - for such is Forgiveness - - -". There are just two who can forgive: The victim and a real god. Does Allah exist, and is he in case a god? - there are many claims, but not the smallest proof.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
015 34/4f: "(Allah gives good Muslims*) a Sustenance most Generous". One of the many not proved claims in the Quran. The poverty through the times and even today in many Muslim areas, prove this wrong if it is meant to be the case for this life. If it is meant the possible next life; big, not provable words are quite normal for Muhammad and the Quran. Also see 34/4a above.
016 34/5b: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah or anything. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.
017 34/6a: "- - - those to whom knowledge has come - - -". Muslims. Flattery often works.
018 34/6d: “- - - the (Revelation (the Quran*)) sent down to thee (Muhammad*) by thy Lord (Allah*) - - -“. The Quran is not from any omniscient god – too many mistakes, etc. Neither is it from a good god – war religions normally are not: Too much inhumanity, injustice and terror.
019 34/6e: “- - - that is the Truth - - -.” This is just a claim, not a proved truth. Too many things - f.x. all the wrong facts, contradictions, etc. - “talks” against the claim that it is the truth, and that the Quran is from Heaven – Islam will have to prove it to make us believe it. Also see 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
020 34/6f: “- - - it (the Quran*) guides to the Path - - -.” A book with those doubtful contents impossibly can be a god guide – Islam will have to prove it to make us believe it. (And to where does it guide if it is from the dark forces?)
021 34/6g: "- - - the Path - - -". The road to the Quran's Paradise - also see 10/9f above.
022 34/6h: "(Allah is*) the Exalted in all Might". At least he has not clearly showed his claimed might one single time in 1400 years - and never before either.
023 34/6i: "(Allah is*) Worthy of all praise". See f x. 1/1a and 34/2 and see if you agree - if he exists, which is never proved.
024 34/7d: "- - - (in ridicule) - - - (because of the claim that *) when ye (people*) are all scattered to pieces in disintegration, that ye shall (then be raised) in a New Creation - - -". The reason for their skepticism hardly was the resurrection. Perhaps it was true that the old Arabs did not believe strongly in a next life, but they in case knew that resurrection was normal for the surrounding religions, and thus nothing new or strange. What was difficult to believe, was resurrection of the body, not only of the soul. (But for Muhammad resurrection of the body was necessary, as most of the pleasures in his claimed Paradise were bodily pleasures).
025 34/8a: "Has he (Muhammad*) invented falsehood - - ?" Already at that time there were persons seeing there were reasons for suspicion - but then Muhammad grew military too strong, they had to be careful saying such things.
##026 34/8c: "- - - has a spirit (sized) him (Muhammad*)?" This question was and is more relevant than you should believe, because in the old days when someone lost his mind or turned crazy - more or less - one many places believed he/she had been invaded by a bad spirit. This expression thus means they thought there was something wrong with his brain - - - and modern medical science strongly suspects he had the mental decease TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) - an illness which can give just such fits and traumas/religious "experiences" like it is told Muhammad got. If this is the case, this is a good partial explanation for why the Quran was made up (the rest easily may be because of his lust for power, honor, and riches for bribes, and women).
027 34/8f: “- - - those who believe not - - - are - - - in the farthest Error.” The question is: Who is likely to be in the farthest error; he/she who believes naively and blindly in a book where not a thing is proved or documented, except it is proved that much of its contents are wrong and twisted and invalid and some of it even lies, and a book which is told by a man of very dubious character, but with lust for women and power? Or he/she who tries to find out if his tales can be true or not – and then leaves it if they find it is a made up religion (or start looking for a true religion, if such one exists). A made up religion has no value whether another real religion exists or not (but of course it is most serious if such a true religion exists, and one is denied the possibility to search for it. Then the possible next life may be troublesome).
028 34/8g: "- - - (to be in) Error - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
029 34/9d: “We (Allah*) could cause - - - a piece of the sky to fall upon them (non-Muslims*). Verily this is a Sign for every devotee that turns to Allah - - -”. The sky is an optical illusion made by the bending of light in the upper atmosphere - not a material heaven like Muhammad believed. It is not possible to make a piece of an optical illusion fall, and absolutely not upon someone.
Besides: This statement only is a claim, not a proved fact. If a child boasts: "My father is stronger than yours", it easily may be wrong.
A totally invalid statement. In this case also an untrue statement. Some sign of Allah!
030 34/9e: “If We (Allah*) wished We could cause the earth to swallow them (non-Muslims*) up - - -.” Easy to say as long as you do not have to prove anything. Also see 14/19d above.
031 34/9f: "- - - verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 2/2b above.
032 34/9g: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
033 34/10c: "O ye Mountains! Sing ye back the Praises of Allah with him (David*)". Animism. Plus that David hardly sung for Allah - his god quite clearly was Yahweh, two quite different gods, especially visible if you compare the Quran to NT and the new covenant.
Animism is something you normally find in primitive religions and in fairy tales.
034 34/10d: "And We (Allah*) made the iron soft for him (David*)". Anyone is permitted to believe the iron was softer for David than for anybody else. But among other facts, it is a fact that this is not mentioned in the Bible, and the Jews had hardly omitted miracles from facts about their greatest king - if it had been true.
##035 34/11b: "Make you (David*) - - -". And the verse continues: "Make thou (King David*) coats of mail, balancing well the rings of chain armour - - -". This is piece of extra interesting information (also in) 21/79-80): The Quran tells that Allah taught David how to make coats of mail (also named chain mail or ring mail). Soldiers and warriors have used mail - f.x. scaled mail - for thousands of years, but coats of mail was not invented until around 300 BC, according to Wikipedia - some 700 years after David - and then by the Celts, who were not very close to Allah, and ever so far from Israel. Any god had known this, but Muhammad not. This point simply is scientific nonsense. Then who made the Quran?
036 34/11c: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
037 34/11e: "- - - be sure I (Allah*) see (clearly) all that ye do." The often used warning - and promise (never documented to be kept). But also see 2/233h above.
038 34/12b: “And to Solomon (We (Allah*) made) the Wind (obedient) - - -.” Islam will have to prove that this is not just one more storey “borrowed” from a legend/fairy tale. (It is not from the Bible, and is sure the Jews had mentioned this - to glorify their big king - if it had been true).
039 34/12d: “- - - and We (Allah*) made a Font of molten brass to flow for him (Solomon*) - - -“.
To keep a fountain of molten brass running, was technical impossible at that time. (Also this is not from the Bible - see 34/12b above).
If it had been running all the same, there is no chance at all for that it had been forgotten or omitted from the Bible - too mighty a wonder to omit.
The claim simply is a fairy tale, perhaps inspired by the temple's brass “sea” the Bible tells about – a round metal vessel filled with water, 10 cubits (4.5 m) diameter and 5 cubits (2.25 m) high (1. Kings 7/23).
040 34/12e: “- - - and We (Allah*) made a Font of molten brass to flow for him (Solomon*) - - -“. Here Yusuf Ali has an informative twist - informative about Muslim ways of explaining and explaining away. We quote from his "The Meaning of the Holy Quran" (YA3804): "(2. Chronicle 4/2 (says*)), "Also he (Solomon*) made a molten sea of 10 cubits (4.5 m*) from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits (2.25 m*)the height thereof - - -. The receptacle or "sea" or Font was made of molten brass - - -". Here the honorable Yusuf Ali - highly respected Muslim writer - is able to include most of the central words in the same piece in the Quran. Only the "fact" that the Quran says it was a running font of molten brass flowing for Solomon, instead of filled with water, is missing.
What the Bible in reality says (NIV) is: "He made the Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring 10 cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high".
There is a difference between a "Sea" of water - an artificial "pond" - and a running font of molten brass. There is a difference between being made from cast metal - melted when made, but then hardened - and being "molten brass to flow for him". There is a difference between an artificial pond and a font "presumably containing flowing water" as YA continues to be able to include the word "flowing". This even more so at flowing water on top of the Temple Mount was technically impossible at that time - a fact a learned man like Mr. YA well knew. Lead tubes existed. But to have running water, one had to have a source of water lying higher than the Temple Mount and the Temple - which did not exist within reasonable distance.
Solomon made an artificial "pond" for water. Islam needs to explain away "a font of molten brass to flow for him". Mr. YA really tries, ####and quite likely many Muslims believe him - the ones who strongly wants to believe in any explanation which seems to remove mistakes, the ones without enough knowledge to see the impossibilities, and the naive ones.
Actually this point is scientific nonsense - one did not have the technology making it possible to make molten brass flow continuously like a font at the time of Solomon.
041 34/13a: "They (Jinns¨*) worked for him as he (Solomon*) desired - - -". Not from the Bible - and you may bet large money on that the Jews had not omitted a miracle like this connected to the hero king Solomon, if there had been the slightest truth in it. Jinns are not even mentioned in the Bible, and also nothing which can be jinns under another name.
##042 34/14a: “Then, when We (Allah*) decreed (Solomon’s) death, nothing showed them (the surroundings included jinns*) his death, except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away his staff - - -”. Wrong:
In the castle of Solomon there would be no earth and then no worm from the earth. (This could not happen outside, as his servants would not leave the mighty king sitting outside through many days and nights).
There exists no worm from the earth able to gnaw dry, hard wood like in a staff. Some Muslims wants this to have been a termite, but a termite is no worm, and a god knows that. And could one termite gnaw fast enough?
See also 34/14b just below.
(This one counts because it is so obvious and easy to see that this is physically impossible and thus that the Quran is wrong.)
##085 34/14b: “Then, when We (Allah*) decreed (Solomon’s) death, nothing showed them (see 34/14a just above) his death, except a little worm from the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away his staff; so when he fell down - - -”. Wrong: It would take days or more for a small worm to weaken the staff enough for Solomon to fall - may be weeks.
A mighty king sitting not mowing for too long would after some time be addressed by his servants.
A mighty king not talking for a long enough while, would be addressed by his servants.
A mighty king not taking care of his duties and his visitors for a long enough while, would be addressed by his servants.
A mighty king not going to bed in the evening would be addressed by his servants.
Rigor mortis (the only possible, but highly unlikely reason for the situation) takes time to start – and it disappears. If not for other reasons, he would fall because of that long before a small worm had the time to weaken the staff.
In the climate of Jerusalem - even in winter (when there after all would be a fire) - his body would start decomposing. Everyone had to notice that.
Scientific nonsense and a fairy tale simply. Even Islam admits that this is from an Arab legend (A34/20 and A76/21 - to verse 21/82).
043 34/15e: "- - - (peoples'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". The Quran here indicates that Sheba was Muslim. But Sheba was conquered from East Africa (Abyssinia - now part of Ethiopia - if we remember correctly) around 350 AD. The conquerors were Christians, and Sheba became mainly Christian during the next 300 years (till it was taken by the Muslims and more or less forcibly made Muslim). So at the time of Solomon they were pagans, and at the time of Muhammad their lord was Yahweh, not Allah.
044 34/15f: "- - - a Lord (Allah*) Oft-Forgiving - - -". See 1/1a above. Also Allah can forgive none unless he exists and is a god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
045 34/16a: "But they (the people of Sheba*) turned away (from Allah) - - -". No trace is ever found in what once was the country of Sheba indicating it was Muslim. Nothing that old was ever found from Islam - nothing older than after 610 AD and the start of Muhammad's teaching.
046 34/17b: "- - - never do We (Allah*) give (such) requital except to such as are ungrateful rejecters". No place was hit as hard as Ache on North Sumatra by the tsunami in 2004. Was this because these intensely and conservative Muslims were "ungrateful rejecters"? - and what about the killing winter in North Pakistan 1-2 years later (one of the most Muslim areas of all)? This sentence simply is not true - catastrophes, man-made or natural, hit also good and devoted Muslims.
047 34/19d: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book with so many errors, etc. as in the Quran, the word "verily" is not reliable without proofs.
048 34/19e: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
049 34/20a: "And on them (the leaders of the caravans in 34/19a above*) did Satan prove true his idea - - -". Everything which is not according to Muhammad and his new religion, is caused by Satan, according to the Quran. For one thing it does not have to be true, even if Muhammad and his Quran says so, and for another: Where has the claimed free will of man disappeared if Satan decides everything for him (well actually how to explain Satan's influence when the Quran many places makes it clear that Allah predestines everything, and according to his Plan which nobody and nothing or even the Devil can change??)
050 34/21a: "- - - except that We (Allah*) might test a man - - -". There is no reason for an omniscient god to test anybody - and especially if the god on top of all decides everything.
051 34/21d: "- - - thy (Muhammad's/Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) doth watch over all things". Be good and he will reward you, be no-good and he will punish you. The carrot and the stick. But is the claim true?
052 34/22b: "Call upon any other (gods) whom ye (people*) fancy, besides Allah; they have no power". Perhaps correct - but also Allah has never, not one single time, clearly showed any power. Is he any better?
053 34/22d: "- - - nor is any of them (other gods*) a helper of Allah". If Allah does not exist, he naturally can have no helper.
054 34/23c: "That which is true - - -". Then it cannot be taken from the Quran - not without reservations - as there far too many errors. Also see 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
055 34/23e: "- - - true - - - just - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, and if relevant, its own partly unjust judicial code.
056 34/23f: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Most High, Most Great". Similar is often claimed, but never proved.
#057 34/24d: "- - - and certain is that either we (Muslims*) or ye (non-Muslims*) are in manifest error". Wrong: There is a 3. alternative: That both are in error. But one another thing is sure: The ones relying fully on the Quran, are in error, because the Quran at best is partly true only - and thus not from a god.
058 34/24e: "- - - certain - - -". See 2/2b above.
059 34/24f: "- - - right (here indicated the Quran*) - - -". See 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
060 34/24g: "- - - guidance (here indicated the Quran*) - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107b above.
061 34/24h: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.
062 34/24i: "- - - Error - - -". Beware that when the Quran talks about moral errors, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. When it talks about facts, it normally compares to its own claims, which often are wrong.
063 34/25d: "- - - your sins - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. We also may mention that just this word - "sins" - often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, than in more normal religions (Islam is a religion of war - in spite of its loud slogans), not to mention how much its meaning in the Quran often differs from the basic of all human moral; "do against others like you want others do against you". Read the surahs from Medina and weep.
One small remark: As Yahweh's religion and f.x. moral code at many points are totally different from Allah's, you may qualify for Yahweh's Paradise even if Muslims condemn you to Hell - if both exists.
064 34/26d: "- - - in truth - - -". See 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
065 34/26e: "- - - in - - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, and its own partly unjust judicial code.
066 34/26f: "- - - He (Allah*) is the One to decide - - -". Allah decides and predestines everything - then where is the free will of man? x - x = 0.
067 34/26g: "- - - Allah is*) the One who knows all". See 2/233h above.
068 34/27c: "- - - He is Allah, the Exalted in Power - - -". He in case never clearly has demonstrated that power.
069 34/27d: "- - - He is Allah, - - - the Wise". Not if the Quran is a sample of his wisdom - much is wrong there".
070 34/28a: "We (Allah*) have not sent thee (Muhammad) - - -”. Was Muhammad really sent by an omniscient and omnipotent god? As you see if you read this chapter, there are serious reasons for doubt. (See f.x. 41/12). So serious reasons that Islam will have to prove it, not only rely on demanding blind belief built on a book with hundreds of mistakes and twisted logic, etc. – told by a man of very dubious character and morality, but with a taste for power and women and with religion his platform of power.
And if you read our Book A, you will see that the real situation for Islam is even more sinister.
071 34/28b: “We (Allah*) have not sent thee (Muhammad*) but as a universal (Messenger) - - -“. If he was universal, why then is everything in the Quran only from Arabia or neighbors? – even when correct information existed other places (f.x. the form of the Earth), in the Quran you find wrong knowledge from Arabia. And only things from Arabia and surrounding area. And made up and wrong legends and fairy tales which circulated in Arabia? No god had done such mistakes as using them instead of using correct information.
072 34/28g: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. See 33/45c above.
073 34/28h: "- - - (against sins) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. We also may mention that just this word - "sins" - often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, than in more normal religions (Islam is a religion of war - in spite of its loud slogans), not to mention how much its meaning in the Quran often differs from the basic of all human moral; "do against others like you want others do against you". Read the surahs from Medina and weep.
One small remark: As Yahweh's religion and f.x. moral code at many points are totally different from Allah's, you may qualify for Yahweh's Paradise even if Muslims condemn you to Hell - if both exists.
074 34/28i: "- - - most men (women count little in Islam*) understand not". But possibly some did? - understood that something was wrong with the new religion? But in any case it was better tactic for Muhammad to claim that the reason why they did not believe him, was that they did not understand. To admit that they might be right, would be to destroy his religion.
075 34/29c: "When will this promise (from Allah*) (come to pass) - - -?" There has never been a proved case of Allah keeping a promise - not even of giving one. Never.
076 34/29d: "- - - if ye (Muhammad*) are telling the truth?". Muhammad's message was the Quran. See 13/1g above and 40/75 below. People did not quite trust him.
077 34/30b: “The appointment to you is for a Day, which ye cannot put back for an hour nor put forward”. Predestined. Whatever you do you cannot change the hour of your death that Allah has decided. Not even by leaving Mecca at Hajj if you are a sheep. The same for a man in a battle. (Any relevant scientist can prove by statistical means that it is more dangerous to take part in a battle than to sleep or play or work at home - - - if such a proof is necessary.)
078 34/31c: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. "Wrongdoers" in the Quran may well be "doers of good" in a normal religion (as opposed to a distaste and suppression and war religion like Islam).
079 34/32: "- - - Guidance - - -". See 16/107 above.
080 34/33c: “We (Allah*) shall put yokes on the necks of the Unbelievers: it would only be a requital for their (ill) Deeds.” That is what those bad people deserve. They are not better. But it is true?
081 34/34a: "Never did We (Allah*) send a warner to a population, but the wealthy ones among them said: 'We believe not in the (Message) - - -". For one thing this is wrong, there were prophets in the Bible who were believed (f.x. Samuel). But the other thing is that this hardly is information, but psychology: Mainly only poor and uneducated people accepted Muhammad the first 12-14 years (until Muhammad started to gain wealth and power), and then it was soothing for his followers to "know" this was normal for prophets (this surah is believed to be from 620 AD).
082 34/36b: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book with this much wrong, this word cannot be accepted as reliable unless there is at least one proof.
083 34/36d: "- - - most men understand not". Obviously that was what at least some of them did - understood that something was seriously wrong with Muhammad’s new religion. But this was better for Muhammad to claim, than to admit they might be right. Claims in spite of proofs, is nothing unnormal for religious people.
084 34/37c: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
085 34/37d: "- - - there is a multiple Reward for their (good Muslims'*) deeds - - -". The Quran some places tells that the value of good deeds will be multiplied at the Day of Doom. (Thus it is easy to be accepted to the Quran's paradise - see 10/9f above - IF the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth).
086 34/37e: "- - - there is a multiple Reward for their (good Muslims'*) deeds - - -". Only if Allah exists, is a major god, and only if everything told about him is true.
087 34/39b: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 34/36a above.
088 34/39d: "- - - nothing do ye (Muslims*) spend in the least (in His (Allah's*) cause but He replaces it". To some degree this was right: It was replaced by means of loot. But if it was Allah who did so or the robbers/warriors, is another Question.
089 34/39e: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Best of those who grant Sustenance". Two points: There has never been proved that he grants anything at all - words are cheaper than deeds. And where on the list is Yahweh?
090 34/40b: "Was it you (angels*) that these men (non-Muslims - no women in Islam?*) used to worship?" As for Jews and Christians they never worshipped angels. Perhaps some of the old Arabs?
091 34/41c: "- - - Jinns, most of them (non-Muslims*) believed in them". Wrong. In most parts of the world nobody knew about jinns - they are from Arab and surrounding folklore and pagan religion. An Arabism. They f.x. were material beings and not spirits, and therefore cannot be compared to the spirits one find in many religions.
092 34/42c: "- - - wrongdoers". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
093 34/43a: “When Our (Allah's*) Clear Signs are rehearsed to them (skeptics*) - - -”. One more place where the word "sign" - here even strengthened with the word “clear” - is used like if the so-called signs are manifested facts. But not one single of them is a proved fact - as said before; with the possible exception of some shanghaied from the Bible, but those in case prove Yahweh/God.
There are literally hundreds of places in the Quran where the word “Sign” and others are disused like this. This is one of the dishonest techniques the Quran uses MANY places. Also see 2/39b and 2/99 above.
094 34/43d: "- - - the (worship) our (non-Muslims'*) fathers practiced". This also is what the Muslims do: Practice the worship their fathers believed in and wrote down - "taqlid". All the mistakes in the Quran proves there is no god behind the book, and consequently not behind the religion.
095 34/43f: "This (Islam*) is only a falsehood invented". All the mistakes, etc. in the Quran show they were right - no god is behind a book of a quality like the Quran with all its errors, etc.
096 34/43g: “And the Unbelievers say of the Truth (the Quran*) - - -”. The Quran at best represents partly the truth - see all the mistakes, invalid statements, etc. Also see 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
097 34/44a: "- - - Books - - -". A "holy" book was of essential interest for Muhammad. It is known he had an inferior feeling on behalf of the Arabs compared to Jews and Christians because they had books, and the Arabs not. What he did not care about, or maybe did not even know, was that a book is as easy to falsify as spoken words. This may be difficult for modern people to understand, but in the old time the written word carried much more respect than today, and what was written often was regarded as more or less proved facts. (Also Muhammad used the lack of holy books by pagans, as proofs for that things were wrong with their religion.) A book itself proves little or nothing.
098 34/45a: "- - - (the Truth) - - -”. This is just a claim, not a proved truth. See 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
099 34/45b: "- - - My (Allah's*) messengers - - -". But f.x. Muhammad was not the messenger of a god - too much was wrong in his claimed message. If he was a messenger, then for whom?
#100 34/45c: "- - - these (the Arabs at the time of Muhammad*) have not received a tenth of what We (Allah*) had granted those (earlier, but disappeared people in and around Arabia*) - - -". In and around Arabia there were empty buildings and ruins, and also there were folk tales about disappeared tribes and people. Muhammad claimed they had all been destroyed by Allah because of sins (science tells there are a lot of other possible explanations in a harsh and warlike area). And to magnify his god and the god's power, if he mentioned the strength of disappeared people, he always claimed that they had been much richer and more powerful than the Arabs of his own time. Just read the Quran, and you will see this.
101 34/45d: "- - - how (terrible) was My (Allah's*) rejection (of them (the non-Muslims*))". The good and benevolent god of peace. Also see 3/77b above.
102 34/46c: "- - - your Companion (Muhammad*) is not possessed - - -". Well, mental problems in the old times often were described as being possessed or being invaded by a bad spirit. Modern medical science suspects that Muhammad had a mental illness named TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy). So perhaps that was just what he was according to the old way of saying it: Possessed. Plus he liked power and women and not least riches for "buying"/bribing more followers.
103 34/46d: "- - - he (Muhammad*) is no less than a warner to you (people*) - - -". When this was dictated around 620 AD Muhammad did not have the power to be more than a "warner" (but was he even this - and in case from whom?). This changed as he and his successors gained power - they also became enforcers. Much of Arabia and the rest of the Islamic area became Muslim by means of the sword, or by means of other kinds of pressure backed by the sword.
104 34/48b: "Verily - - -". See 2/2a above.
###105 34/47b: “No reward do I (Muhammad*) ask of you - - -“. - - - except absolute power and plenty of women. Yes, and 20% of all stolen/looted valuables and slaves – 100% if there is no fight – and poor-tax (on average ca. 2.5% of everything you own each and every year, but up to 10%) as I need money for bribes, for strengthening my religion and platform of power, and for war and myself and my large family (NB: There is reason to believe that he did not take from the so-called "poor-tax" (the 2.5%) for personal use*), and some for the poor.
106 34/47c: "- - - my (Muhammad's*) reward is only due from Allah - - -". Hypocrisy. When he grew in power, he lived a good life - not really rich, but reasonably well off (and with enough riches to feed all his women). You will meet Muslims telling how poor he was when he died - it is a Kitman (a lawful half-truth). When he died he had estates in Mecca, Fadang and Khaybar. The false rumor about his poverty emerged from the fact that he had decided that his riches should follow the religious establishment. Because of that there exists a short list over some personal belongings, which many Muslims claim - and often honestly believe - was everything left after him. (They even forget the fact you also Islamic literature mentions, that his daughter Fatima for the rest of her short life (and her husband Ali afterwards) quarreled with the first caliph, Abu Bakr, because she demanded the inheritance after her father).
107 34/48c: “Verily my Lord (Allah*) cast the (mantle of) the Truth (the Quran) - - -”. It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See f.x. 13/1 above or 40/75 below, and many others.
108 34/48d: "- - - He (Allah*) that has full knowledge of (all) that is hidden". The well known reminder and warning: Allah sees everything, so be good and obedient - included obedient to Muhammad.
But the old fact: If he knew everything, there was no reason for testing people - and also not for all the errors in the Quran.
109 34/48e: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a.
110 34/49b: “The Truth (the Quran*) has arrived - - -”. That the Quran is the truth is just a claim, not a proved fact - the claim actually is proved wrong. See f.x. 13/1g above or 40/75 below, and many others.
111 34/49c: "- - - Falsehood - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
####112 34/49d: "- - - Falsehood neither creates anything new, nor restores anything". As the Quran is a falsehood - or at least with all its errors and weaknesses not from any god - this might give reasons for thinking for Muslims.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
#####113 34/50b: “If I (Muhammad*) am astray, I only stray to the loss of my own soul - - -.” Wrong to at least the 9. power (as there are better than a billion Muslims – or the 10. power or more if you reckon the ones through the times). ############################# If Muhammad was astray – ALL believing Muslims are astray – and all the mistaken facts, contradictions, invalid logic, etc., tell an ominous tale. The Quran - its mistakes, errors, etc. - also is contradicted 100% by any non-religious knowledge and by logic. ONE MORE PLACE WHERE AN INTELLIGENT MAN LIKE MUHAMMAD HAD TO KNOW HE WAS LYING, BECAUSE BOTH THE FACTS AND THE LOGIC ARE WRONG.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
114 34/50cd "- - - if I (Muhammad*) receive guidance, it is because of inspiration - - -". If Muhammad got information from anyone, it at least was not from Yahweh. For one thing the teachings are too different by far, and for another Yahweh did not use inspiration as a means for giving information - only direct contact, visions , and dreams (4. Mos. 12/6-8).
Also remember here that one of the theories on who made the Quran and thus Islam, is the dark forces - and there are reasons for that suspicion.
115 34/50e: "- - - it is He (Allah*) Who hears all things - - -". The oft repeated warning (and sometimes promise). But also see 2/233h above.
116 34/50f: "- - - (Allah*) is (ever) near". One more of Muhammad's never proved claims.
117 34/52a: "- - - the (truth) - - -". See 13/1g above.
118 34/54a: "And between them (non-Muslims*) and their desires is placed a barrier - - -". One of Muhammad's many unproved claims in the Quran. Besides it is wrong: Many of non-Muslims' desires are fulfilled.
119 34/54b: "- - - for they (non-Muslims*) were indeed in suspicious (disquietening) doubt". Similar you find here and there. It is a nice and psychological smart thing to tell followers wanting to believe what you are saying, so that they will believe this, too. Whether it is true or not, does not matter very much - the main thing is that it is good pep-talk for the followers if they believe it.
Another main point is that it is not true - something f.x. the Jews who were murdered, proved (many of them could have save their lives by becoming or pretending to be Muslims).
