1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 36
18 May 2014
SURAH 36: YA SIN
(The Surah is named after two Arabic letters)
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 36/2b: “By the Quran, full of Wisdom - - -”. With all its mistaken facts and other mistakes, contradictions, cases of invalid logic, and unclear language, etc. it is difficult to know what is wisdom and what is the opposite - or bluffs.
003 36/3b: “Thou (Muhammad*) art indeed one of the messengers - - -.” Only 2 things are sure:
This is never proved or in any other way documented – and with all the other mistakes in the Quran, such a proof is strictly necessary.
If Muhammad was a messenger, then for whom or what? The only two things that the Quran makes very clear about this, are that it was not for an omniscient god (too many mistakes, etc.) and not for a good god (too much stealing/robbing, dishonesty, suppressing, rape, inhumanity, terror, blood and war, etc.). Similar claims in 4/179 - 5/19 – 48/29.
004 36/3d: "- - - one of the messengers - - -". Muhammad claimed to be in the same line of prophets ("messenger" is not used as a title in the Bible) as the biblical ones. To be in that line, his teachings had had to be similar to theirs at least in contents, and also the facts and prophesies and not least the moral and ethical codes had had to be an integrated part of the ones from the prophets in that line. Nothing of this is the case. In spite of strong - and as normal from Muhammad and Islam not proved - claims, Muhammad is not in that line of prophets - and not in the same religion. His deeds, demands, introduced rules, code of moral, etc. all clearly places him far outside that line - and places both him and his religion in the line of religions of war, together with religions like the one of the Vikings, the one of the Aztecs, the one of Genghis Khan, etc.
We must admit we also see similarities between the life - and perhaps the death - of Muhammad and f.x. the Zulu king Shaka. (There is a possibility that also Muhammad was killed, though in case with poison. Of the first 11 caliphs after Muhammad, 10 were murdered, so that if also Muhammad was murdered, this in case just was the start of a tradition.)
005 36/4: "On a Straight Way". "The Straight Way" is the Quran's symbolic name for the road to Paradise. In the Bible you find 2 such symbolic names: "The Narrow Road" - the difficult road leading to Paradise - and "The Wide Road" - the easy road leading to Hell. Is there any symbolism in the fact that "The Straight Way" of the harsh war religion Islam gives associations to "The Wide (and easy*) Road" more than to "The Narrow Road" of the NT?
006 36/5c: “It (the Quran*) is a revelation sent down by (Him (Allah*))”. Once more: Can it really be sent down by an omniscient god, with all those mistakes and invalid “signs” and “proofs”, etc.? Never.
007 36/5d: "(Allah is*) the Exalted in Might". Perhaps, but he has never - not one single time throughout history or prehistory - unmistakably showed his claimed might or power. Yahweh has if either the Bible or the Quran speaks the truth (though the Quran mixes Yahweh with Allah, claiming it is the same god, even though the teachings are far too different for that). But Allah never.
008 36/5e: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust parts of the sharia laws and see if you afterwards agree.
009 36/6d: “- - - (- - -Signs of Allah) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah or anything. See 2/39b above.
###010 36/7a: "The Word (from the Quran*) is proved true against the greater part of them (non-Muslim Arabs in this case*) - - -". The Quran has so many mistakes, that it at best is partly true. ("A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion". Muhammad's claims are not based on proved facts, and in addition logic often can give at least two possible explanations for them. ##Islam too often is pretty "free" with using words like "proof", etc. Also see 36/7b just below.)
Some other quotes about proofs and invalid or made up proofs:
"Strong claims need strong proofs.
"A claim without a proof may be dismissed without a proof".
"Claims are cheap, but only proofs are proofs".
"The use of invalid proofs normally proves that something is fishy".
"The cheat or deceiver naturally must rely on claims pretending to be facts or proofs".
"A made up "proof" makes the man very suspect".
"A strong belief is not a proof - not necessarily even a truth".
"Wrong claims and invalid "proofs" are working tools of the cheat".
"A student with correct facts gets a more correct answer than 20 professors with wrong facts". (Invalid, "signs", claims, "proofs", etc. of course are wrong facts.)
And we may add from Peer Gynt in his original language: "Naar utgangspunktet er som galest, blir resultatet tidt originalest" - freely translated: "When you conclude from wrong claims/wrong facts/invalid "proofs"/etc., you get wrong conclusions".
#####011 36/7b: "- - - proved - - -". Whenever you meet words like "proof", "proved", "truth", "sure", etc., etc in the Quran, in Islam, or from Muslims, you had better be careful, as they are very free with using such words (also beware that the word "Sign" in Quran-speak indicates a "proof" for Allah or Islam or Muhammad). A proof is #########"one or more proved facts which can give only one solution/answer". Muhammad, the Quran, Muslims, and Islam all have a strong tendency to use a not proved claim or something, skip proving Allah has anything to do with it, and then tell that this and this are proofs, etc. for Allah or Muhammad or Islam. NEVER accept or believe in such claims until you have checked that they really have proved that Allah is behind the phenomenon they say proves something, or that the claims really are true. If not the proof, etc. are totally without value - even worse: They may simply be trying to chat you by using an al/Taqiyya (a lawful lie) or a Kitman (lawful half-truth), etc. - forms of permitted dishonesty you only find in Islam of the big religion. (But do not accuse a Muslim too quickly of dishonesty in such cases - many are so used to misuse of words like "proof", that they think they are honest when they call a loose claim a proof, especially if they themselves find the claim logical).
012 36/8a: "(Allah has) their (non-believers*) heads forced up (and they cannot see (the road to Paradise*))". One more case of serious difference between the Quran and NT with its new covenant: Yahweh would never, never, make the slightest hindrance for anyone at all, on the way to Paradise according to NT - at least not without a very good reason, and here the reason just is that they are not Muslims, and here are robbed the possibility to become such. Yahweh and Allah definitely are not the same god
013 36/9a: "We (Allah*) have put a bar in front of them (non-believers*) and a bar behind them; and further, We have covered them up, so that they cannot see (the road to Paradise*)". Here the difference between NT and the Quran is even easier to see than in 36/8 just above. No chance that Yahweh and Allah is the same god no matter how dearly Muhammad liked the idea - the fundamental ideas and ideal behind the teachings are too different. Muhammad was wrong there, too. And we do not bother to remind you that the standard, but never documented, Islamic claim that the Bible is falsified, also is proved not correct (there are many and strong circumstantial and empirical proofs for this), even though this claim was the only way out for Muhammad to explain away the differences between what he claimed the Bible said, and what it really said. Science has too thoroughly proved that claim wrong, and Islam has done the same even more thoroughly by combing the old manuscripts without finding one single relevant proved falsification.
014 36/10c: "- - - they (skeptics*) will not believe". At least for a large number of them because they already then saw that things were very wrong in Muhammad's new religion.
015 36/11c: "- - - the Message - - -". The Quran - or this early (614-15 AD) rather Muhammad's preaching, as the Quran hardly existed yet - only some of the surahs.
###Another point is that as no god ever sent a message as full of errors as the Quran, then who in case sent the "message"? There only are 3 possibilities: The dark forces, a sick brain (f.x. TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - like modern medical science suspects), or a cold brain (f.x. Muhammad's).
016 36/11d: "- - - the (Lord (Allah*)) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above, and see if you agree.
017 36/11e: "- - - good tidings - - -". The Quran has good news only if it is true and only if it really is from a god (which it is not, as no god makes that many mistakes, etc.)
018 36/11f: "- - - Forgiveness - - -". Only two can forgive; the victim and a god. Was Allah a real god - if he existed?
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
019 36/11g: "- - - a Reward most generous". Paradise. Also see 10/9f above.
020 36/12b: "Verily We (Allah*) shall give life to the dead - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 7/158i above.
021 36/12c: "- - - We (Allah*) record - - -". Why did an omniscient god need to keep a record (other places in the Quran even tells it is written in a book - like mentioned in the end of the verse)?
022 36/12f: “- - - in a clear Book (the Quran*) (of evidence) - - -”. A book with that many mistakes and invalid “signs” and “proofs“, etc., gives little clear evidence. Besides: To falsify what you write is just as easy as to falsify what you speak. Now it here is possible it is referred not to the Quran, but to the claimed book where all your good and bad deeds are written. But why does an omniscient god in case need such a book
023 36/13-27: A story with similar problems of disbelief which met Muhammad - good for his followers in ca. 614-615 to hear that this was the normal for prophets, and to hear the happy ending. There are numbers of such stories in the Quran. Good psychology towards his followers, especially from verse 20 and on. And just for the record: There is no such story in the Bible.
024 36/14b: "Truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 2/2b above.
025 36/15b: "- - - (Allah*) Most Gracious - - -". Non-Muslims would not say this.
026 36/15c: This verse and up to 36/19 is a mirror of what Muhammad experienced at this time (614-15 AD - not long after he had started his preaching in earnest). In the Quran you find many stories which are such parallels - they told his followers that his situation was normal for claimed prophets, and this indicated that he was a real prophet.
027 36/16: "Our Lord (Allah*) doth know that we (3 claimed prophets*) have been sent on a mission to you (a city*)". Allah may know this, if he exists and if he in case is a god - or even if he belongs to the dark forces.
028 36/17c: “- - - the clear Message (the Quran*).” A book that full of mistakes, contradictions (f.x. man has free will vs. Allah decides/predestines everything – even Islam is unable to explain that, “but it has to be true, because it is said by Allah (in the Quran*)”(!!!)) according to “The Message of the Quran” (A6/141) - invalid arguments and ditto logic, give no clear message.
Also the language in the Quran often is unclear - and unclear language produces no clear message.
##029 36/19: "- - - ye (the claimed messengers for Allah*) are a people transgressing all bounds!". If you look at all the immoral, injustice, and inhumanity in Muslim political, military, and f.x. slave history, may be the ones who said this were right.
030 36/20b: "Obey the messengers - - -". Not obey the god, but obey the messengers - just Muhammad's message here on Earth, as to obey Allah on Earth in reality meant to obey Muhammad.
031 36/21a: "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves) - - -". This is reflecting Muhammad's often repeated, but very wrong claim that he demanded nothing from his followers. He demanded much - extremely much - included their lives, total power, huge fortunes to use as gifts/bribes to attract and keep followers, respect, lots of women, etc. Persons like Jesus and Buddha really claimed nothing for themselves, and there is an irony in that if Muslims are to follow verses like this in the Quran, they cannot follow Muhammad, but have to follow f.x. one of the two mentioned.
032 36/21b: "- - - those who have themselves received guidance - - -". A new mirror of Muhammad’s situation. But the $64ooo question is: Did Muhammad really receive guidance?. The point easy to answer, is that he in case did not receive it from any god - all the errors, etc. in the Quran prove that. The difficult point is: If he all the same received guidance, them from whom or what? - dark forces? - a sick brain? - a cold, scheming brain?
#####033 36/21d: (YA3967): "Prophets do not seek their own advantage". If you read the Bible, you will find that this mostly is correct. Which is another indication/proof for that Muhammad was no prophet - he wanted and got respect and power (in addition to riches for bribes for more power and women - he was well off when he died (in spite of Muslims' claims about his poverty), f.x. with estates in Medina, Fadang, and Khaybar).
034 36/22b: "- - - to Whom (Allah*) ye (people*) shall be brought back (at the Day of Doom*)". Often claimed, never documented - and only true if Allah exists, if he is a major god, and if he is correctly described in the Quran, a book full of mistakes, etc. and thus not from any god.
035 36/23b: "- - - (Allah) most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.
036 36/23c: "- - - of no use whatever will be their (other gods*) intercession for me (a person*), nor can they deliver me". But there never was a proved case which showed that Allah can do this, too. If such a proved case had existed, you bet Islam had told about it - Islam and each and every of its Muslims.
037 36/23d: "- - - of no use whatever will be their (other gods*) intercession for me (a person*), nor can they deliver me". What about Yahweh in case? - he may help at least his followers (and there is a small chance for that Yahweh exists, versus none for Allah - at least as a god (the Quran with all its errors prove things are very wrong concerning the claims about Allah)).
038 36/24a: “(If I took another god*) I would indeed - - - be in manifest Error.” Not if that god exists – and especially not if Allah on top of that is a made up god (he after all was taken over from the pagan Arab gods by Muhammad - he just dropped the name al-Lah, and only used Allah, and even took over most of the pagan Arab religious rituals, too. And not least: Neither Allah nor Muhammad was ever able to produce the feeblest proof for Allah's existence or power.) Lots of claims, but not one proved case.
There also is a likeliness - but not a clear case - for that also Hubal was a name for al-Lah/Allah, and a possibility for that the name Hubal was connected to the name/title Ba'al (= lord, master, owner) - the more or less representative of the Devil, according to several prophets in the Bible. The name Ba'al or similar was used for some gods in a wide region in the Middle East. (see second part of 1/1d)
039 36/24e: "- - - Error - - -". This is one of the words the Quran frequently use about opponents or opposing meanings - or facts - without proving it.
040 36/26b: "Would that my People knew (what I know)". Or maybe not: There is a difference between people knowing the reality and people knowing the contents of a book full of mistakes, etc., and all the same wrongly believing it is from a god.
041 36/27a: "For that my (a Muslim*) Lord (Allah*) has granted me forgiveness and has enrolled me among these held in honor!" This only is possible if Allah exists, is a major god and is correctly described in the Quran - a book so full of errors that no god has ever been involved in it.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
042 36/27b: "- - - forgiveness - - -". Only two can forgive; the victim or a god. Is Allah a god? - see f.x. 36/27a just above.
Another point is that to forgive - or for that case to punish or reward or fulfill prayers - means for Allah to change his Plan considering the sinner/person, something which according to the Quran is something nobody and nothing can make him do. See 2/187d above.
043 36/28a: (A17 – comment omitted in English 2008 edition): “And We (Allah*) sent not down against his People, after him (a man who came running in 36/20*) - - -.” The literal meaning of the Arab “hi i min ba’dihi” is “after him” (like said here) or after “this”. But does it refer to “after what he did in this situation” or – as it is told he went to heaven in 36/26 (2 verses earlier) – does it refer to “after his death”. Islam does not know and in 2008 the “revised” “The Message of the Quran” does not even want to inform its readers about the uncertainty any more.
044 36/28b: "- - - hosts from heaven - - -". Muhammad claimed Allah sometimes sent down angels from Heaven to help in battles or to avenge or punish - in this case the verse indicates that Allah thought this was not necessary, but used another punishment instead (see 36/29 just below). (But why can such things at all be necessary if Allah predestines everything?)
045 36/28c: "(The punishment*) was no more than a single mighty Blast - - -". But how to justify punishment if Allah predestines everything - and on top does so according to his own Plan which nothing and nobody can change, like the Quran states unequivocally several places? (Islam is unable to explain this - they only say that predestination and free will for man (and thus responsibility) both must be true, because it is said so in the Quran. Blind belief - "taqlid" - gone amuck.
046 36/31a: "See they (people*) not how many generations before them We (Allah*) destroyed?"
Muhammad told - like normal for him without any proof - his followers, that Allah frequently had destroyed peoples of the old. f.x. the ones who had lived in the old ruins or empty houses in and around Arabia - included homes cut into rocks so long ago that no-one knew who really had made them. And the same about disappeared tribes from old Arab folklore.
The Quran claims Allah is a good and benevolent god, but he is quite good at killing people - much bloodier by far than Yahweh in OT (before the new and milder covenant in NT).
047 36/32a: "But each one of them all (humans*) - will be brought before Us (Allah*) (for Judgment (on the Day of Doom*))". Often claimed, never documented - and a claim most religions make on behalf of their religion, Islam like most others. Words are that cheap, as long as no proofs are needed.
048 36/33a: “A Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah or anything. See 2/39b above.
049 36/33c: "- - - We (Allah*) do give it life - - -". This is a claim you frequently meet in the Quran: Allah gives life. In just this and similar cases, where there is life already, but only need water to sprout, it just is a bluff which may look - look - like being true. But for real creation of life or real resurrection there never was a valid proof for that Allah had or has such power (as opposed to Yahweh who has proved both if the old books tell the truth).
050 36/33-35: Muhammad claims nearly all and everything of natural phenomena as indications for Allah and/or glorification, without even one single time trying to prove that it really is Allah who is behind it. It all is just unproved words and claims - just like so many other religions. Invalid as indication, not to mention as proofs, as long as it is not first proved that it is Allah's work. Also see 11/7a above.
051 36/36b: “Glory to Allah, Who created - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.
052 36/37a: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
053 36/38b: "- - - for a period determined by Him (Allah*) - - -". For as long time as Allah has predestined.
054 36/38e: (YA3983): “And the sun runs its course for a period determined (“mustaquarr”) for it - - -.” According to this comment, it is possible to read at least 5 meanings:
“- - - a limit of time - - -.”
“- - - a period determined - - -.”
“- - - a place of rest - - -“.
“- - - a place of quiescence - - -“.
“- - - a dwelling place - - -.”
All these meanings are correct according to the original Arab Quran – and its unfinished alphabet.
Very clear language in the Quran? Or just clear?
055 36/38f: "(Allah is*) the Exalted in Might - - -". He in case never has proved that might - there only are words and claims.
056 36/38g: "(Allah is*) the All-Knowing". Not if the Quran is his work. But also see 2/233h above.
057 36/40b: “It is not permitted for the Sun to catch up the Moon - - -”. Visibly this actually seems to happen now and then - during solar eclipses. Muhammad even witnessed such one once - and superstitious persons believed it had something to do with the death of his son Ibrahim. But that happened years after this surah was published, and no comment was added here. In real life the sun and the moon are so far from each other, that to catch up is out of the question - except perhaps in some 5 billion years, when the sun perhaps gobbles up Earth.
058 36/41a: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
059 36/42: “And We (Allah*) have created for them (people*) similar (vessels) (similar to the ark*) - - -“. We have never heard that Allah built boats. Muslims tends to say Allah showed man how to build boats, but that is not what the Quran says.
060 36/43b: "- - - the there would be no helper - - -". In comes once more the question about Yahweh? He exists according to the Quran, even if they mistakenly mix him with Allah - perhaps he would help his followers? And what about Muslims as the Quran and all its errors are from no god?
061 36/44: "- - - Mercy from Us (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above.
062 36/45c: "- - - receive Mercy (from Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above.
063 36/46a: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
#064 36/47f: "- - - ye (Muslims*) are in nothing but manifest error". All the errors in the Quran indicate that the non-Muslims here were right.
065 36/52a: "This is what (Allah) most Gracious had promised". At least it is what Muhammad and his Quran promised.
066 36/52b: "This is what (Allah) most Gracious had promised". There never was a case where it was proved that Allah gave a promise - not to mention kept one.
067 36/52c: "- - - (Allah) most Gracious - - -". Read 1/1a and see if you agree.
068 36/52d: "And true was the word of the messengers!" The tale Muhammad is telling "confirms" Muhammad's claim that he is telling the truth. Convenient. But believable?
069 36/53a: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) will be brought up before Us (Allah - on the Day of Doom*)". Often claimed, never documented. It only may - may - be true if Allah exists and is a god correctly described in the Quran.
070 36/55b: "Verily the Companions of the Garden shall have joy - - -". If the Quran's tales are true, and if Allah exists and is a major god.
Also remember that the deep differences between the reasons for the joy in Yahweh's Paradise compared to in Allah's Paradise, are one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
071 36/56: “They (Muslims*) and their associates will be in groves of (cool) shade reclining on Thrones (of dignity)”. We still are in the paradise taken from the royal dreams of poor and primitive people living in a too hot country – but is that all an omnipotent god is able to offer? Also see 10/9f above.
072 36/57: “(Every) fruit (enjoyment) will be there for them; they shall have whatever they call for - - -”. A very material paradise. Also see 36/55b and 36/56 above.
073 36/58: "- - - a Lord (Allah*) Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a above.
074 36/59b: "- - - in sin - - -". 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 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 exist. One more of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
075 36/60a: "Did I (Allah*) not enjoin on you (man*) - - -". If Allah does not exist, this only was done by Muhammad, not by Allah. Many a self proclaimed "prophet" both before and after Muhammad have done similar things and made a platform of power for themselves - though not as successful as Muhammad. (And if Muhammad was mentally ill (f.x. TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like modern medical science strongly suspects), he may have at least partly have believed in his own tales - he was too intelligent to believe all of them.) Also see 67/9c below - a strong one.
076 36/60b: "- - - ye (people*) should not worship Satan - - -". This sentence may be a bit ironic, as one of the theories for who made the Quran, just is Iblis/Satan (f.x. parts of the Quran's (im)moral code and the religions many points of inhumanity, may strengthen this theory).
077 36/61b: "- - - the Straight Way - - -". The road to the Quran's paradise - but only if everything is true in the Quran.
##078 36/62a: "But he (the Devil*) did lead astray a great multitude of you (non-Muslims*)". As the Quran with all its errors is not from a god, this multitude may include all Muslims - especially if the real maker of the book is from the dark forces. A sad, but plain fact.
079 36/62b: "Did ye (non-Muslims*), then, understand?" That just was one of Muhammad’s main problems before he grew powerful enough to force his religion on people and big enough warlord to tempt his religion on warriors wanting loot: Too many understood that things were very wrong with his new religion.
080 36/64c: “- - - for that ye (the “unbelievers”*) (persistently) rejected (truth).” The “truth” in the Quran at best is just partly the truth. Too many mistakes, etc.
081 36/64e: "- - - (truth) - - -". There is none so eager claiming that his words are true, as the cheat and deceiver. Another hallmark for cheats, swindlers, and deceivers is that they only have more or less loose claims and fast-talk for arguments.
The text here refers to Islam and the Quran - and the only fact which is really true here, is that no god would make or deliver a book of a quality like the Quran.
082 36/65b: "But their hands will speak to Us (Allah*), and their feet bear witness - - -". Why does an omniscient god need witnesses? He is presumed to know and decide everything himself.
083 36/66a: "If it had been Our (Allah's*) will - - -". See 14/19d above.
084 36/66c: "- - - surely - - -". See 2/2b above.
085 36/66d: "- - - the Path - - -". The claimed road to the Quran's and Islam's paradise. See 10/9f above.
086 36/67a: "And if it had been Our (Allah's*) will - - -". See f.x. 14/19d above.
087 36/67b: "- - - We (Allah*) could have transformed - - -". One of Muhammad's many, many never proved claims. Claims are cheap.
088 36/68a: "If We (Allah*) grant a long life to any - - -". Not possible unless Allah exists and is something supernatural, white or black.
089 36/68b: "- - - will they (non-Muslims*) not then understand?" Quite likely that is what many do; understand that things are very wrong in the Quran.
090 36/69c: “- - - this is no less than a Message and a Quran - - -.” At least it is far less than a true message and a true/correct Quran, which the Quran itself proves – far too many mistakes, twisted arguments and too much invalid logic + some clear lies. Etc.
##091 36/69d: “- - - this is no less than a Message and a Quran - - -.” But in case from whom? With all its mistaken facts and other errors, contradictions, unclear language, etc. it is from no god. It hardly can be even from a devil - no devil would use a book that helpless and full of errors, because he would know that sooner or later he would be looked through and lose credibility. (One possible explanation: May be the god demanded it done in this sloppy way, in order to permit the Devil luring more people to Hell, so that it should be easy for persons using their brains - the second most valuable gift a human has after life itself - easily should see and evade the trap. This in case also may explain the Quran's demand for blindness - blind belief and blind obeying.)
The last alternative is that the Quran is man-made. Actually the helpless composition and style of the book (except a linguistically polished Arab language - linguistically polished through some 250 years up to around 900 AD by the best Muslim brains) and all the scientific mistakes which one believed were correct science at the time of Muhammad in the "Middle East", plus that all the tales, etc. are from in and around Arabia, indicate this. Also the at least some clear lies in the Quran indicate human or dark force origin.
092 36/69e: “- - - a Quran making things clear”. A book with this many mistakes, contradictions, misleading “signs” and “proofs”, etc. makes things confused rather than clear.
But all the same: Remember that the Quran here claims it makes things clear. It is a good thing to know, each of the many times Muslims claim mistakes are not mistakes, but parables or something.
######That the Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran is clear, explained by Allah, and to be understood literally, you find f.x. these places: 3/b, 3/138a, 11/1b, 15/1b, 17/1, 18/2a, 19/97, 20/113, 24/34, 24/54, 26/2, 27/1, 28/2, 36/69e, 39/28b, 41/3, 44/58, 54/17, 54/32, 54/40, and 745/19. Worth remembering each time a Muslim or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the text means something different from what it says. In such cases either the Muslim/Islam lies when he/she claims the text means something different from what it says (the claim often is that it is a parable or something), or the Quran lies when it says that the book uses clear texts (where nothing else is indicated).
Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to tell what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims behind such "explanations".)
093 36/69f: (A36/41 - in the English 2008 edition A36/39): "- - - the Quran is an integral element in the process of divine revelation". = An integral element in the Jewish and Christian revelations. This is a central Muslim - like normal never proved - claim and dogma, but it is wrong. The Quran is fundamentally so different from the other scriptures, that it does neither fit nor belong in that series. Islam and Muslims and the Quran itself try to explain away this well known fact with that the Bible and other scriptures are falsified, but both science and Islam itself have delivered solid circumstantial and empirical proofs for that this is not true - neither of them has found one single proved falsification of a relevant and authentic scripture, this even though there are many thousands of such manuscripts known.
094 36/70a: "- - - it (the Quran*) may give admonition - - -". A book with that many errors, etc. and with a partly immoral moral code, etc.?!
095 36/70c: “- - - reject (truth (the Quran*)) - - -“. The Quran at most is partly true – too many mistakes, etc. Also see 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
096 36/71a: "See they (humans*) not that it is We (Allah*) Who have created for them - - - cattle - - - ?" Well, cattle existed for eons before man found out he could utilize them some 15ooo years ago. They simply were part of the nature and the fauna, not created for the humans.
097 36/71b: "it is We (Allah*) Who have created - - -". See 11/7a above.
098 36/73: "Will they (people*) not then be grateful?" Most likely they will - if it is proved or at least made likely that Allah really made this.
###099 36/74: "Yet they (non-Muslims*) take (for worship) gods other than Allan - - -". Most natural, as they do not believe in Allah - some even knowing how much is wrong in the Quran and thus in Islam.
100 36/75a: “They (different gods*) have not the power to help them (man? gods?*) - - -". One pertinent question: Has Allah ever proved any power at all? And another: What about f.x. Yahweh? - if the old books tell the truth, he at least has proved his existence and power - - - if as said the old books tell the truth.
101 36/76b: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book where so much is wrong, the word "verily" cannot be relied on unless there are proofs.
102 36/76c: "Verily We (Allah*) know what they hide as well as what they disclose". See 2/233h and 35/38b above.
103 36/77b: "- - - it is We (Allah*) Who created - - -". Similar claims you find many places in the Quran, and we find them as interesting each time, as there never was a proof for that Allah created even the left hind foot of a gnat. There only are words and claims - whereas Yahweh has proved a lot if the old books tell the truth about this.
104 36/78b: "Who can give life to (dry) bones, and decomposed ones (at that)?" Muhammad claimed that Allah gathered all the bits and molecules and fluids which had made up you, and resurrected you physically (but into a young adult). This was a bit difficult for the skeptics to believe, naturally.
105 36/79b: "He (Allah*) will give them (humans*) life (here resurrection*) - - -". See 7/158i above.
106 36/79c: "He (Allah*) will give them (humans*) life Who created them for the first time!" See 6/2b, 11/7a and 21/56c above.
107 36/79d: "For He (Allah*) is well-versed in every kind of creation!" See 6/1e, 6/2b, 7/158i, 11/7a, 21/56c above, and 65/12 below.
108 36/81a: "Is not He (Allah*) Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". But was it he - among all the gods claiming credit for that creating - who created it? There only are the loose, never proved words of an unreliable man (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, even broken oaths and betrayals) with strong motives (f.x. lust for power) for telling tales, like many false prophets do and have done throughout the times. Only on this man's undocumented claims does this unproved claim rest - and the same man's other claims are proved wrong, and a few times even clear lies, literally far more than a thousand times. The chance for it to be true is feeble to say the least of it. A very minimum demand is that Islam proves something before they can expect to be believed. Also see 11/7a above.
Besides science tells that the Earth and the universe were created by nature.
109 36/81f: "For He (Allah*) is the creator Supreme - - -". Often claimed, never proved. Also see 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c above.
110 36/81g: "(Allah is*) of skill and knowledge (infinite)". Not if he made the Quran - the knowledge there is very finite.
111 36/82a: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book where so much is wrong, the word "verily" cannot be relied on unless there are proofs.
###112 36/82b: "Verily, when He (Allah*) intends a thing, His Command is 'Be', and it is!" It is not for mere humans to speculate about why a god might want company, but if the god for some reason did want it, #######he according to the Quran just could say "Be a son" and Jesus was. This as a comment to Muslims' - and the Quran's - repeated question about how the god could have a son when he had no consort. (Besides in the very old Hebrew religion there also was a female deity - the male god's Amat. (Source "New Scientist" and others). Thus Jesus well could have been created "the natural way" if that is necessary for gods. The Amat was over time forgotten - the strictly masculine society of the old Hebrews did not respect a female, even not a female deity.)
113 36/83a: "So glory to Him (Allah*) - - -". Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.
114 36/83b: "So glory to Him (Allah*) in Whose hands is the dominion of all things - - -". Muhammad has a strong tendency to glorify or give credit to Allah for everything without the slightest proofs - words are cheap. But it is thought provoking that the believers of even small pagan gods and "powers" do the same for their gods and "powers".
115 36/83d: "- - - to Him (Allah*) will ye all (humans*) be brought back". Often claimed, never documented - never even documented that Allah exists, in contrast to Yahweh who made so many miracles, that there is no doubt about his existence - - - if either the Bible or the Quran speaks the truth on these points. (Beware that the Quran mistakenly calls Yahweh Allah when it "borrows" him from the Bible or from religious legends and fairy tales - but the basics of their teachings are so fundamentally different, that it is obvious they are not the same god).

Not formed like questions for proofs, but what needs to be proved normally easy to see all the same. And: References you do not find here, go to "1000+ Comments on the Quran".
