1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 40
18 May 2014
SURAH 40: Al-Mu'mim (The Believer)
(Mecca, 616-618 AD)
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 40/2a: "The revelation of this Book (the Quran*) - - -", The Quran claims to be a series of revelations from Allah. This is one of the many never proved claims in the Quran, and the claim is highly dubious - or more: No god ever reveled a book with so many mistaken facts, contradictions, cases of invalid logic, cases of unclear language, etc. Islam will have to produce proofs for that it really is a revelation, to make realists believe it. And not least: They will have to prove who in case revealed it - as said; no god revealed anything of a quality like the Quran. (Islam claims the Quran is top literature. You have to know very little about literature to be able to believe that.)
003 40/2c: "- - - (Allah is*) Exalted in Power - - -". This is a frequently repeated, but never proved claim in the Quran.
004 40/2d: “- - - (Allah is*) full of Knowledge - - -”. Not if he sent down the Quran. See 38/29.
005 40/2e: "- - - Knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
006 40/3a: "(Allah*) forgiveth Sins - - -". Only 2 can forgive sins - the victim and a god. This sentence is not true unless Allah exists and is a god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
007 40/3b: "- - - 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 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.
008 40/3e: "- - - (Allah*) hath a Long Reach (in all things)." Similar often claimed in the Quran, but never proved anywhere. Many claims, not one proved case.
009 40/3f: "There is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". Even omitting all other gods claimed to exist, there is the problem with Yahweh. Both the Quran and the Bible claim that this originally Jewish god exists - even though the Quran mixes him with Allah. The teachings of Yahweh and Allah are fundamentally so different that it is clear that Muhammad's, Islam's, and the Quran's never documented claim that the two are the same god, is wrong. If there is only one god, which of the two - if any - do exist? (There are no proofs at all for the existence of Allah whereas both the Quran and the Bible tell that Yahweh - partly via Jesus - performed many miracles. If thus one of those two books tells the truth on this point, it is proved that something supernatural took place connected to the Jewish god Yahweh.) Also see 2/255a, 6/106b, 25/18a above
010 40/3h: "- - - to Him (Allah*) is the Final Goal." This is a much repeated claim in the Quran - in different words. But how reliable is a book with hundreds and more of mistakes, claiming to be from a god, but clearly not so as no god makes such and so many errors, contradictions, etc. - and only dictated by a man of doubtful morality? This also is a claim used by all religions - as long as no proofs are necessary, any preacher can use it free of charge, as words are that cheap.
011 40/4a: “None can dispute about the Signs of Allah but the Unbelievers”. This may be absolutely correct, though the correct expression may be "are permitted to" not "can":
It is a reason for social extrication in Muslim societies to doubt any word in the Quran.
It is a reason for imprisonment in some Muslim countries to doubt too much or deny belief in the Quran. (March 2008: A woman in Malaysia, Kamariah Ali, was just (2007? AD) sentenced to 2 years of prison for being inconsistent with Islam. The judge, Mohammad Abdullah, told she had committed a grave offence, and that the sentence was in the public interest.)
It is a good reason in some countries and in some societies for being murdered by Muslims if you express too much doubt in the Quran, not to mention in Muhammad - the weak link in the religion (the only claimed witness and not a very holy character).
It still is a reason for death penalty – official or unofficial – in some Muslim areas to doubt too much in the Quran, not to mention to want to leave Islam.
Your marriage is automatically void and ended the moment a Muslim leaves Islam - and not everyone wants to lose his wife or her husband or the mother or father of their children (not to mention lose their children).
Even for non-Muslims it is dangerous to doubt the signs and the Quran - they may be murdered. Islam do not trust the power of the word - with a reason, thinking about all the mistakes and invalid statements, “signs” and “proofs”, etc. in the Quran - and resort to murder. It is better blindly to believe in the never proved religion of the fathers (taqlid), than to try to find out if it really is true. Like Islam says when “hunting” for proselytes: It is difficult to question your (heathen*) deepest beliefs and what you were imprinted as a child". They forget that this also goes for Muslims: Better not to control if what you believe in is right or wrong - and to run the risk of not finding the right religion (if one exists) in time, if Islam is wrong.
Yes, many places only non-Muslims can - or actually are permitted to - discuss or dispute the signs of Islam. And even for us it is so dangerous, that this book cannot be printed unless the printer is very brave, in spite of the book being very down-to-earth and based entirely on the Quran and other central Islamic literature + correct scientific knowledge.
#012 40/4b: “None can dispute about the Signs of Allah but the Unbelievers”. Wrong in reality - Muslims can, but are not permitted to. There is no reason why it is not possible for Muslims to discuss them, too, except religious ideas and prohibitions. And they should do so, as none of the religious claims in the Quran are valid proofs (they rest on thin air or unproved claims or statements) of Allah. A few taken from the Bible may prove Yahweh, but absolutely none proves or even indicates Allah. They f.x. can be used by any priest in any religion about his god(s).
####013 40/4c: “- - - the Signs of Allah - - -”. The presumed signs (=indications or proofs) of Allah are indicated to be manifested realities, even though not a single one of them is proved – to dispute the “signs” means you are an unbeliever. But to check on never proved facts before you accept them, is the only responsible and intelligent thing to do. And to believe mainly because your father stated that his grandfather had told something had to be true, because so his own father's mullah had claimed, and then it had to be the truth - well, that is pretty naive (but the majority believe the Quran is the Truth because of such "logic" - what they name "taqlid", but believe only goes for non-Muslims). Also see 3/39b above.
014 40/4e: "Let not, then, their strutting about through the land deceive thee (Muslim*)!" Who is normally the deceiver - the one who demands blind belief or the one who asks you to check if claims and claimed facts can be true?
015 40/5a: "- - - (the Signs) - - -". See 3/39b or 40/4c above.
016 40/5d: "- - - (- - - Evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
017 40/5g: "- - - condemn the Truth - - -". The correct expression may have been "condemn what they saw was not the truth" - much is wrong in the Quran.
018 40/5h: "- - - the Truth - - -". That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. Yes, the Quran itself proves this claim wrong. With so much wrong, the Quran at best is partly the truth. No mistakes becomes more correct because of the claim that is the truth is repeated many times - but often it may cheat some people to start believing it is the truth, anyhow. Also see 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
019 40/5j: "And how (terrible) was My (Allah's*) Requital!" Impossible if Allah did not exist and was something supernatural - but beware that he could punish even if he in case belonged/-s to the dark forces.
020 40/6b: "- - - proved true - - -". In a book with so much wrong like in the Quran, expressions like this cannot be accepted at face value, unless accompanied by real proofs.
021 40/6e: "- - - truly they (non-Muslims*) are the companions of the Fire!". Not if they believe in a real god - f.x. Yahweh if he is real, like both the Bible and the Quran claims (though the Quran wrongly mixes him with Allah*). And especially not so if Allah is a made up god, like all the mistakes in the Quran indicate - no god ever was behind something that full of errors, etc.
022 40/6f: "- - - companions of the Fire". Persons - non-Muslims - destined for Hell. But also this is a never proved claim.
023 40/7b: "- - - implore Forgiveness (from Allah*) - - -". Allah can forgive nobody, unless he exists and is a god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
024 40/7d: "Thy (Allah's*) Reach is over all things - - -" = Greater than everybody else. Well, it at least is a claim.
025 40/7e: "- - - (Allah is the greatest in) Mercy - - -". Read the surahs from Medina, the dark parts of the Quran's moral code, and the unjust parts of the sharia laws, and see if you agree.
026 40/7f: "- - - (Allah is the greatest in) Knowledge". Not if he made the Quran - far too much is wrong.
027 40/7g: "- - - Knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
028 40/7h: "Forgive - - -". Only 2 can forgive: The victim and a god. Thus Allah can forgive only if he for one thing exists, and for another if he is a victim or a god.
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.
029 40/8a: “And grant our Lord (Allah*), that they (Muslims*) enter the Gardens of Eternity, which Thou hast promised to them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their posterity (descendants*)!” Good and well, but here the Quran runs into a mathematical and practical impossibility. Your father and wives are ok. But your children and their children (because your sons have the same promise), and their sons, and their sons, and their sons - - -. It will be quite a melee after 1000 generations - or even after 100.
030 40/8e: "- - - righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
031 40/8f: "(Allah is*) the Exalted in Might - - -". At least he has never clearly proved his might.
032 40/8g: “- - - (Allah is*) Full of Wisdom.” Not if he sent down the Quran. See 38/29.
033 40/9c: "- - - truly - - -". Similar to 40/6b above. Also see 2/2b above. Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim.
034 40/9d: "- - - the highest Achievement". To be admitted to the Quran's paradise. But we are back to the old fact: There is not one proof for its existence - only the word of a dubious man who had a lot to gain from making people believe in him and his new religion. Also see 10/9f above.
035 40/10b: "- - - ye (non-Muslims*) were called to the Faith - - -". Yes, but all the mistakes in the Quran shows that it was a faith with much wrong in it at best, and thus clearly not from a god.
036 40/11a: "- - - twice hast Thou (Allah*) given us life!" See 6/2b, 11/7a and 21/56c for creation of life and 7/158i for resurrection.
037 40/11b: "- - - our 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 often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, compared to 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.
038 40/12a: "- - - Allah was invoked as the Only (object of worship) - - -". Well, there still is the question about f.x. Yahweh, whom the Quran admits exists, even though it wrongly mixes him up with Allah. Also see 2/255a, 6/106b, and 25/18a above.
039 40/12e: "The command is with Allah - - -". Similar often claimed in the Quran, but never proved.
040 40/12f: "- - - Allah, most High, Most Great". Is he really, if the Quran is not from a god, and very much of the claims and claimed information in reality are unreliable or wrong?
041 40/13a: “- - - His (Allah's*) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
042 40/13b: "(Allah*) sendeth down Sustenance (in this case rain*) to you from the sky - - -". One of the many, many places in the Quran where Muhammad claims - always without any proof - a natural phenomenon as glorification and proof for his god - - - just as easily and cheaply as any believer in any religion claims just the same phenomena for his god(s), as long as he can flee from the questions of proofs or evade such questions with the glorification of blind belief - the cheapest of all money for swindlers, deceivers, etc. Also see 11/7a above.
043 40/13c: "- - - only those receive admonition who turns (to Allah)". This only can be true if Allah exists, is a major god and if at the same time no other god exists - f.x. Yahweh whom both the Bible and the Quran claims exists (even though the Quran mistakenly mixes him with Allah - their teachings are fundamentally too different for them to be the same god).
044 40/14a: "Call ye (Muslims*), then, upon Allah with sincere devotion to Him - - -". First one perhaps should find out if there are chances for that he exists? - and that he in case is a god?
045 40/15b: "- - - (He (Allah*) is the Lord of the Throne (of Authority) - - -". One of the many, many never proved claims in the Quran.
046 40/15d: "- - - the spirit (of inspiration) - - -". Muhammad claimed he got his information from his god by means of inspiration, and many places in the Quran you find he claims all other prophets received their information the same way - which in case would make Muhammad’s claim, that he himself got it by inspiration, was a normal way of divine communication, and thus Muhammad a normal prophet. As far as we can find the word "inspiration" is not used in such connections anywhere in the Bible, and thus very unnormal for Biblical prophets.
047 40/16b: "- - - not a single thing concerning them will be hidden from Allah". Why then does Allah need witnesses that day? And why does he need to test even his followers, when he will know everything anyhow? See 2/233h above.</>
048 40/16c: "Whose will be the Dominion that Day? That of Allah - - -". Similar often claimed in the Quran, but never proved. You find similar claims in most religions - unproved words are that cheap.
049 40/16f: "- - - Allah, - - - the Irresistible!" Similar claims are legion in the Quran - but never anything but claims.
050 40/17b: "- - - no unjustice will there be that Day (the Day of Doom*) - - -". Wrong: There is no honest justice between the mediocre sins of most sinners, and the devilish and sadistic and everlasting punishment they will receive. Not to mention if Allah has predestined the sins.
051 40/17d: "- - - Allah is Swift in taking account". If he exists, if he is a god or a devil, and if the Quran has described him correctly.
052 40/18e: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Remember that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
053 40/19b: "(Allah) knows - - - all that the hearts (of men) conceal". Se 2/233h above.
054 40/20a: "And Allah will judge (at the Day of Doom*) - - -". Only if he exists and is not just a god or devil, but the top god.
055 40/20c: "And Allah will judge with (justice) and Truth - - -". Not always if he is judging according to the sharia laws. Some of these laws are among the most unjust and immoral laws which have ever existed on this Earth - f.x. a raped woman is to be punished for illegal sex if she cannot bring 4 male witnesses who have seen the very act, and are willing to witness in spite of risking punishment for not helping her. Or a man correctly blaming a woman for unlawful sex, but unable to produce 4 male witnesses, is guilty of slander ONTO ALLAH (!!!) even if the omniscient - according to Islam - Allah has to know he is speaking the truth. And non-Muslims cannot witness against Muslims. Stealing, enslaving and raping are "lawful and good" as soon as it can be called part of a jihad - and "everything" is jihad, etc.(actually to permit such crimes and inhumanities in the name of Allah, makes them even more detestable and despicable). And not to forget al-Taqiyya, Kitman, deceit, and "break your oaths if that gives a better result".
056 40/20d: "And Allah will judge with (justice) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like "justice", it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and partly unethical moral and ethical codes, and not least in accordance with its own partly unjust Judicial codes.
057 40/20e: "- - - Truth - - -". This is one of the words which cannot be taken at face value unless there are proofs, in a book where so much is wrong as it is in the Quran.
058 40/20g: "- - - (other gods*) will not (be in a position) to judge at all". The same goes for Allah if he is a made up god - and we remind you that the Quran with all its mistakes is not from any god. Besides: If f.x. Yahweh exists, the quote is wrong.
059 40/20h: "- - - (other gods*) will not (be in a position) to judge at all". There is the always recurring question about Yahweh - which means this is contradicted by the Bible. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
060 40/20i: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See "Truth" in 40/20b just above.
061 40/21c: "- - - their 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 often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, compared to 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.
062 40/22a: "That (the destruction*) was because there came to them their messengers - - - but they rejected them". Wrong unless Islam really proves the claim. See 40/21a above.
063 40/22b: “- - - Clear (Signs) (= proofs for Allah*) - - -“. There are no clear signs for Allah in the entire Quran or anywhere else. See 2/39b or 2/99 above.
064 40/22c: "- - - He (Allah*) is Full of Strength - - -", He has in case never one single time clearly documented the strength.
065 40/22d: "(Allah is*) Strict in Punishment". See 3/77b above.
066 40/23a: "Of old We (Allah*) sent Moses - - -". It is most likely - an understatement - it was Yahweh who sent Moses. The two gods are not the same in spite of Muhammad's claims, as the teachings fundamentally are far too different (and we remind you: Science has proved the Bible is not falsified - and Islam has proved it even stronger by never being able to document one single falsification of the tens or hundreds of thousands of falsifications which had had to be made to cover up falsifying the Bible.)
067 40/23d: "- - - an Authority manifest (from Allah*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which says it was from Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
068 40/24b: "- - - Pharaoh - - -". According to science (f.x. Encyclopedia Britannica) Exodus happened around 1235 B.C. (if it is not fiction) under Pharaoh Ramses II. Now Ramses II likely was the greatest pharaoh ever, and science knows much about him - among other things that he did not drown, in spite of that both the Bible and the Quran says so. But the Bible is written by humans, and humans can have mistaken one of Ramses II's generals or one of his 67(?) sons for the pharaoh. This explanation is not possible for the Quran, which is claimed to come from a god - no omniscient god makes mistakes. Because of this Islam tries to claim it happened earlier - sometimes as early as 1500 BC or even a bit earlier - under less known pharaohs whom we do not know if may have drowned or not. That this also collides with other information about Exodus, does not matter very much for Islam - it is quite normal for Muslims to find "explanations" which seemingly give the answer they want, and overlook - or "overlook" - other facts which goes against their "explanation" or even makes it impossible. (In this case f.x. the 70 - 80 of Jacob's family who settled in Egypt around 1665(?) BC, impossibly could have multiplied to the number which according to the Bible left Egypt at Exodus in less than some 400+ years (430 according to the Bible). Something Muslim scholars know, but never mention.)
069 40/24c: “- - - Haman - - -”. See 28/6c above.
070 40/24d: "- - - Qarun - - -". This man and his story are not from the Bible. And there are - and were - no other sources from that time relevant to Moses. This story thus either is made up or from some supernatural source - but in spite of Muhammad's claim the Quran is not from a god, as no god makes that much wrong and use so many mistaken facts, etc. like in the Quran - or it is from a legend or a fairy tale - - - or made up.
071 40/25a: "Now, when he (Moses) came to them in Truth, from Us (Allah)". (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.) See 40/23a above. Another fact is that according to the Bible Moses' god was Yahweh, not Allah.
072 40/25b: "- - - Truth - - -". That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See 13/1g above and 40/75 below.
073 40/26c: "What I (Pharaoh Ramses II*) fear is lest he (Moses*) should change your religion - - -". For one thing this is naivety - it is not that easy for a little known leader of some slaves to change the religion of a mighty country, which Egypt was under Ramses II, and for another thing this is not from the Bible. See 40/24b above. There was nothing about the religion during Exodus in the Bible, only: "Let my people go".
074 40/27b: This verse - and more - is contradicted by the Bible, in the meaning that there was no religious quarrel or similar with the Egyptians according to the Bible during Exodus, only: "Let my people go". Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
075 40/28b: "A believer, a man from the people of Pharaoh (Egyptians*) - - -". How many Muslims existed in reality in Egypt ca. 1850 years before Muhammad started his religion?
076 40/28d: "- - - faith - - -". Islam. Only Islam is faith in the Quran. Contradicted by the Bible which tells that the god of the Jews and of Moses was Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
077 40/28e: "My (Moses'*) Lord is Allah". Believe this if you want - most likely only Muslims are able to. But see 40/28d just above.
078 40/28g: “- - - Clear (Signs) - - -“. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.
079 40/28h: "- if he be a liar, on him is (the sin of) his lie: but if he is telling the Truth, then will fall on you - - -". Something to think over for angry Muslims who do not want to hear our facts, not to mention think them over and think over what they mean, but instead send us death warnings because we know things they do not like to hear - or others to hear? (#########We have not got many death warnings, but they have come, and we are informed there are unpleasant warnings other places on the net, too - one of the main reasons why we are doing this work; we do not want our descendants to be forced to live in a world where terrorism and murder are accepted arguments - and even more so when used for promoting what proves itself to be a made up cause.)
080 40/28i: "- - - (the sin of) - - -". 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 - "sin" - 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.
####By the way: Have you noticed how many points in the Quran's moral code which are similar to the corresponding points in the moral codes of f.x. the Mafia, the Triads (Chinese), and of terrorist "revolutionary armies" like "the Shining Path", and M23 (Africa)?
081 40/28j: "- - - truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 40/20b above.
082 40/28l: "- - - guide - - -". You cannot be a good guide with a guide-book as full of mistakes as the Quran.
083 40/28-33: Contradicted by the Bible: Neither this man, nor this story is mentioned in the Bible - like so much more of the "Biblical" stories in the Quran (most of them are from apocryphal - made up - scriptures, folklore, legends, and fairy tales). See 40/24b above. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
084 40/30b: "Truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 2/2b above.
085 40/30d: "- - - (the sin of) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this - sin - 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.
By the way: Have you noticed how many points in the Quran's moral code which are similar to the corresponding points in the moral codes of f.x. the Mafia, the Triads (Chinese) and of terrorist "revolutionary armies" like "the Shining Path", and M65 (Africa)?
#086 40/31c: “- - - Allah never wishes injustice to His Servants.” Wrong. One star example: The Islamic law that tells that a woman who is raped is to be severely punished/stoned for indecency/unlawful sex if she cannot produce 4 male witnesses that actually saw the rape. Probably is the most unjust law that ever existed in an even half civilized society. Extreme injustice.
087 40/31d: "- - - injustice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and partly unethical moral and ethical codes, and not least in accordance to its own partly unjust judicial codes (sharia laws).
088 40/33b: "- - - no defender shall ye (non-Muslims*) have from Allah - - -". Now we are back to the fact that many moral, ethical and even judicial codes are very different between especially NT and the Quran. This means that Yahweh may think you are a good person who at least tries to live according to his basic ideal: "Do unto others like you want others do unto you", even if Allah wants to send you to Hell for not wanting to steal/rob, enslave, suppress, and murder for him and Muslim leaders. So may be Yahweh will interfere? - if any of them exists. (Well, to interfere against Allah should not be too difficult, as it is highly unlikely he exists - the only rumor about him is in a book full of mistakes, dictated by an man with doubtful morality, believing in the use of dishonesty, and liking respect, power, riches - at least for bribes - and women.)
089 40/34c: "No Messenger will Allah send (to Egypt*) after him (Joseph*)". This is not from the Bible - like so much of the "Biblical" stuff in the Quran. See 40/24b.
Besides this is wrong even according to the Quran, as Joseph lived somewhere around 1700 BC (3 generations after Abraham, who according to science lived around 2ooo-1800 BC), whereas Moses lived around 1400-1300 BC = after Joseph. (According to the Quran the messenger and prophet Moses tried to teach Islam to Ramses II and his Egyptians.)
090 40/35b: "(Such) as dispute about the Signs of Allah, without any authority - - -". The sinister question is: Do Muslims have any authority? - a book full of mistakes, etc. dictated by a man of doubtful moral and ethics, but wanting power and women, is no authority, and definitely no divine authority.
091 40/35c: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
092 40/35d: "- - - Grievous and odious (is such conduct) in the sight of Allah - - -". Only if Allah exists and is a god.
093 40/35e: "- - - Grievous and odious (is such conduct) in the sight of - - - the Believers". Obviously - but because they are right or because they are blind and in addition unable to or refuse to think?
094 40/35g: "Thus doth Allah seal up every heart - of arrogant and obstinate and transgressors." See "the lost sheep" or "the 11. hour". Not the same god as in NT.
095 40/36b: "Pharaoh (Ramses II*) said: 'O Haman! Build me - - -". See 40/25d above.
096 40/36c: “- - - Haman - - -”. See 28/6c.
40/37d: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
097 40/37e: “- - - the plot of Pharaoh led to nothing but perdition (for him).” Wrong. We know from other places in the Quran, that the perdition is said to be drowning. But Ramses II did not die by drowning, and on top of that he did not die until several years after the possible exodus in ca. 1235 BC - both according to science.
098 40/38b: "- - - the Path of Right". The road to the Quran's Paradise. Also see 10/9f above. And remember we are in the pagan Egypt some 1850 years before Muhammad. Believe it if you want to.
099 40/39: "- - - it is the Hereafter (Paradise*) that is the home that will last". If there is a hereafter, this may well be true. But how will life in a possible hereafter be? It is unlikely in the extreme that it is correctly described in the Quran, as that book with all its mistakes, etc. is not from any god. No god delivers such a quality like the Quran. (Muslims glorify the language in the book - polished for some 250 years by good scholars. But to what use is a glorious wrapping paper if the contents of the packet is without value - or worse?
100 40/40b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
101 40/40d: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expression like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
102 40/40g: "- - - therein (Paradise*) will they (good Muslims*) have abundance without measure." If the Quran has told the truth - the full truth and only the truth.
103 40/42a: "- - - blaspheme against Allah - - -". This only is possible if Allah exists and is a god.(It will take a lot to blaspheme if he exists and belongs to the dark forces.)
104 40/42b: "- - - Allah - - -". Remember that this happened(?) around 1235 BC - some 1850 years before Muhammad’s "23 years". Neither science nor Islam has found a single trace from Islam in Egypt older than 610 AD (or actually somewhat later - from 639 AD on (Muslims invaded Egypt in December 639 AD)). So it is up to you what you want to believe.
105 40/42c: "- - - to join with Him (Allah*) partners (other gods*) - - -". See 25/18a above.
106 40/42d: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a.
107 40/42e: "(Allah*) the Exalted in Power". An often repeated but never documented claim in the Quran.
108 40/42f: "- - - (Allah*) forgives again and again!" This only is possible if Allah exists and is a god - only a god (and the victim) can forgive.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
109 40/43a: "Without doubt - - -". See 2/2b above.
110 40/43c: "- - - our (peoples'*) Return (on the Day of Doom*) will be to Allah". This only is possible if Allah exists and is a major god, and if the Quran has described the possible next life correctly.
111 40/43d: "- - - Transgressors - - -". One of Muhammad's many distaste inducing names for non-Muslims. But remember that the expression is in accordance with the Quran's somewhat "special" moral code.
112 40/44a: "- - - Allah (ever) watches - - -". This only is possible if he exists.
113 40/44b: "- - - Allah (ever) watches over His Servants". The old warning: Do not try anything. The old promise: Everything good will be remembered, too. If Allah exists and is a god.
114 40/46-50: This is not from the Bible. See 49/24b above. There is much in the Quran pretending to be from the Bible, but which is not. We point out some of it. But from where did Muhammad get this kind of stuff? Not from a god, as no god delivers books with so many mistakes, etc. From dark forces? From a mental illness - like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like modern medical science suspects? From made up or apocryphal scriptures? From legends or fairy tales (science knows Muhammad "borrowed" many of his tales in the Quran from such ones and from made up apocryphal stories)? From fantasy?
115 40/47a: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) will dispute with each other in the Fire!" Nonsense. If they are resurrected in a body like on Earth, like the Quran states many places, and if the pain is even in the neighborhood of what the Quran states - and like anybody who has burnt themselves a little has felt - they will be unable to dispute.
116 40/48a: "Those who had been arrogant - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims. (It here is quite an irony in that the Arab Muslims the first centuries were so arrogant towards non-Arab Muslims, that it led to strife and revolt. Even today many Muslims are arrogant in their belief in a never documented, but believed by them to be a superior religion.)
117 40/49-50: “Those (sinners*) in the Fire will say to the Keepers of Hell: ‘Pray to your Lord (Allah or the Devil?*) to lighten us the Penalty for a Day at least.’ They will say: ‘Did there not come to you messengers with Clear Signals?’ They will reply, ‘Yes’. They (the keepers*) will reply, ‘Then pray (as you like)! (to no avail*)”. In Hell there is no pardon. But do all sinners deserve such a sadistic punishment? Most of them after all are just comparatively small sinners - f.x. believed in Yahweh instead of Allah.
A never proved "conversation".
118 40/50b: “- - - Clear Signs (= proofs of Allah*) - - -“. There exists no proof of Allah – not in the Quran, not anywhere else (even many Muslim scholars admit this). If a proof had existed, you can be 1000 – thousand - % sure all the world had been informed and with big letters. Contradicted by reality and by the laws of logic - and by Islam's inability to prove this.
119 40/50c: "- - - the praying of those without Faith is nothing but (futile wandering) in (mazes of) error!". But are prayers from Muslims any better, as the Quran they believe in, literally are mazes of error?
As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are taught that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)
120 40/50g: "- - - error - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
121 40/51a: “We (Allah*) will, without doubt, help Our messengers and those who believe - - -.” Only possible if Allah exists and is something supernatural (but what his help is worth if he in case belongs to the dark forces, may be another question).
122 40/51b: "- - - without doubt - - -". In a book with so much wrong as in the Quran, there is reason for doubt about anything which is not proved".
123 40/51e: "- - - when the Witness will stand forth - - -". Why does an omniscient god who on top of all decides all things, need witnesses?
124 40/52c: "- - - Wrongdoers - - -". Will the Muslims be among those if the Quran is a made up book? MUCH of what the Quran advices and demands its followers to do, is horrible and immoral and very wrong (Muslims are unable to see it, though, as they have been told from they were toddlers that such things are glorious).
This word also is one of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims.
125 40/52d: "- - - Wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
126 40/55a: "- - - (the Book*) - - - A Guide and a Message to (the Jews*) - - -". This may well be true as far as the "Books of Moses" go. But beware that Muhammad claimed what Moses - and all other prophets - got, was a copy of the claimed "Mother Book" from Allah - similar to the Quran (which the bad Jews and Christians later falsified and made into the Bible instead - and as Jesus is claimed to have been a good Muslim, the falsifications must have been made later (after 33 AD): Dignified Jews Pharisees in black suits sitting down with as honorable bishops to agree on what to falsify, and how the two religions now should be changed, and not least what to falsify about Messiah (Jesus) in OT. And not to forget how to falsify all old manuscripts spread on 3 continents, and how to do it in such ways that future experts would be unable to find out anything about what was falsified - and of course how to do it without the congregations on 3 continents discovered that things had been falsified and changed, and how to falsify the scrolls which existed in each and every synagogue without the believing Jews noticed anything (and remember here that the changes in the texts had to be enormous).
We will have to hope that persons like Mr. H. C. Andersen and the Grimm brothers were members of the commission - and perhaps dr. Isaac Asimov as an adviser about future techniques concerning fraud detection to circumnavigate or cheat future experts.
127 40/55d: "The Promise of Allah - - -". But in a book full of mistakes, how to know what - if any - really is the promise of Allah?
128 40/55e: "The Promise of Allah - - -". As the Quran is not from any god, it is little likely that it contains any promise from Allah or from any other god.
129 40/55f: "The Promise of Allah is true - - -". In a book like the Quran with so much wrong, no word like "true" can be taken at face value unless it is proved. It also is a fact that there through all times has not been one single documented case of Allah keeping a promise - lots of claims, but not one proved case.
130 40/55g: "- - - ask forgiveness - - -". Allah cannot forgive unless he exists and in addition is a god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
131 40/55h: "- - - celebrate the Praises of thy (Muslims*) Lord (Allah) - - -". Read 1/1a and see if he deserves it - if he exists.
##132 40/55j: “- - - Praises thy Lord in the evening and in the morning.” This with prayers at fixed times of the day - actually there are 5 a day - was so essential for Allah, that they became one of the 5 main pillar for his religion. Whereas Yahweh was totally uninterested in that kind of formalism - pray when there was a wish or a need. One more of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god.
##########133 40/56b: "Those who dispute about the Signs of Allah without any authority bestowed on them - - -
If they believed in f.x. Yahweh and Yahweh exists, they had authority to discuss this.
If Allah does not exist, nobody needs authority to discuss him or the Quran or Islam - or "his" signs.
If the Quran is not from a god, Muslims have no authority to discuss or claim anything.
134 40/56c: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
135 40/56e: "It is He (Allah*) Who hears and sees (all things)". You find versions of this claim all over the Quran. Normally it is used for one or more of these purposes: 1): Allah sees everything, so do not try to cheat him or his messenger (Muhammad*) - here on Earth in reality Muhammad (and his successors). 2): Allah sees everything, so if you are a good guy and do your best, he will reward you, if not in this life, then in the next (cheap promises for any leader). 3): Allah sees all things, so take it easy: He will punish those rich, no-good non-Muslims, if not in this, then in the next life. Soothing to "know" - and an easy "explanation" for any leader for why not his followers are on top; Allah's unfathomable decision.
136 40/57a: "Assuredly - - -". This word is a claim, not a documented fact. See 2/2b above.
137 40/57b: "Assuredly the creation of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of men - - -". Probably - if a god created some of it. But is it created? - it is not proved. And in case by whom - many gods demand the honor, included Allah, even though he has never been able to prove even his own existence. Everything only is words, and words are cheap".
#138 40/57c: "Assuredly the creation of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of men - - -". As we know nothing about creation, we also know nothing about what is most difficult to create (if it is created): Dead elementary matters or organic life and consciousness. This "proof" thus is invalid, as it is built on presumptions - like so often in the Quran - not on real knowledge.
139 40/57e: "- - - most men understand not". That was just Muhammad's problem - and is Islam's problem: Too many understand that something is very wrong in the Quran, and thus in Islam - no god would deliver a holy book full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, etc.
140 40/58b: "Not equal are the blind and those who (clearly) see - - -". This is worth an afterthought when comparing the blindly believing Muslims and non-Muslims seeing that something is seriously wrong in the Quran, and hence in Islam.
#####141 40/58d: “- - - nor are (equal) those who believe and work deeds of righteousness and those who do evil”. This is obvious. But what then about those points in the Quran's codes of moral, of ethics, of conduct, of warfare, etc. which are evil? And what about the unjust parts of the sharia laws? (Muslims normally are unable to see the evil such places, because they have been told since they were born that this is just and good and glorious. But anyone - Muslims and non-Muslims - is/are free to compare such points to "do to others like you want others do to you".
142 40/58f: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
143 40/58h: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
144 40/58i: "- - - admonition - - -". What can you really learn by admonition based on a book like the Quran with all its errors, immoral moral and ethical rules, etc.?
#145 40/58j: A summary of this verse is that Muslims are much better - much better quality - than non-Muslims. A "fact" many (most?) Muslims "know" very well today. Just think about the debate in Pakistan (in 2009?) about whether non-Muslims had half the value of Muslims, or less.
But if Muslims take the power, this may be what we will have to live with. Because of a powerful religion built only on a clearly made up book.
146 40/59b: “The Hour will certainly come - - -". It is quite possible that an hour of doom may come - many religions say so. But as the Quran has given not one single valid proof for it - just cheap, though often strong, words - there are strong reasons for doubting a doom and a hell like in the Quran. This even more so as the Quran has so many other mistakes, and uses so many contradictions and invalid “signs” and “proofs”, not to mention all the statements resting on nothing or on other invalid statements, “signs“ or “proofs“ - quite likely the way the claimed Day of Doom will be experienced, also is wrongly described in that book.
147 40/59c: "- - - therein is no doubt - - -”. In a book with so much wrong like in the Quran, there is reason for skepticism and doubt against most things which are not proved.
148 40/60a: "I (Allah*) will answer your prayers - - -".
But for the last 1400 years and until today he has not given one single clear and indisputable answer. There have been coincidences, etc., but not one single unmistakable answer unmistakably and proved for Allah. Not in 1400 years! (If there had been even one single, Islam had broadcasted it in all media each and every time the question had cropped up. But it has never happened.)
149 40/60b: "- - - prayers - - -". But what is the idea behind and what is the effect of prayers, if Allah long since has predestined everything - and predestined according to his Plan which nobody and nothing can change, like the Quran states several places? If predestination is true, prayers just are waste of time and effort - there is no way they can have any effect. To claim differently either needs a good explanation or is mumbo-jumbo.
150 40/60d: "- - - (non-Muslims*) will surely find themselves in Hell - - -". A nice pep-talk - like so much in the Quran - for Muhammad's followers (as said; gloating is a good feeling for many). But whether it is true or not, will depend on if Allah exists and is a god, and whether this god in case is correctly described in the Quran.
151 40/61b: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. Similar to 40/20b above. Also see 2/2b above.
152 40/61c: "Verily Allah is full of grace - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you agree - - - if he exists.
153 40/61d: "- - - most men give no thanks (to Allah*)". For the simple reason that at least many of them see that something is seriously wrong with that religion, and do not believe he exists.
154 40/62a: "- - - Allah, your Lord (god*) - - -". If he exists and in addition is a god, then perhaps.
155 40/62b: "(Allah*) the Creator of all things - - -". An often used, but never proved claim in the Quran - a claim used by most religions as it cost nothing to claim it for ones god. It is one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad frequently use to "verify" or glorify his god - free of charge, but absolutely without any value as an indication or a proof for Allah, as long as it is not proved that it really is Allah who created it.
156 40/62c: "There is no god but he (Allah*) - - -". See 2/255a, 6/106b, and 25/18a above - and in addition there does not exist one single proof for that Allah exists - only Muhammad's words, a man of dubious morality to say the least of it, even according to the Quran, Hadiths and other Islamic books - read the reality behind the glorious words, and you easily see this.
#157 40/62e: “- - - how ye (non-Muslims*) are deluded away from the Truth! (the Quran*)”. That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See 13/1g above and 40/75 below. Who are deluded if the Quran is made up? - and it is a made up book at least in the meaning that with all its errors, contradictions, etc. it is from no god. But of course it may be from the black forces, if a god forced them to deliver such a quality book.
158 40/62f: "- - - the Truth - - -". That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below. A book like this at best represents partly the truth.
159 40/63a: "Thus are deluded those who are wont to reject the signs of Allah". But as the book is not from a god - too many mistakes, etc. - who may really be the deluded ones?
160 40/63b: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
161 40/64a: "It is Allah Who made for you the earth - - -". One more natural phenomenon claimed by Muhammad for glorification of and "proof" for his god - as always without any documentation. You find similar claim in many religions - claims are cheap and a number of believers believe in it, no matter which religion they belong to. According to science the Earth is made by nature, and Islam will have to prove - prove - differently to be believed.
162 40/64c: "- - - (Allah*) has provided for you Sustenance". According to the Quran everything are gifts from Allah - so why work?
163 40/64d: "- - - Glory to Allah - - -". See 1/1a above and see if he deserves it - if he exists.
164 40/64e: "- - - Allah, Lord of the Worlds - - -". Often claimed, never proved.
165 40/64f: "- - - Allah, Lord of the Worlds - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the lord, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
166 40/65a: "He (Allah*) is the Living (One) - - -". There has never in the entire history of Islam been a proof for this.
167 40/65b: "- - - there is no deity save Him (Allah*) - - -". See 2/255a, 6/106b, 40/3e, and 40/62c above.
168 40/65c: "- - - call upon Him (Allah*) - - -". It may be worth a try. But he has never provably answered anyone between Muhammad and now. And besides if he has predestined everything like the Quran states several places, prayer cannot have any effect - everything is already decided.
169 40/65d: "- - - giving Him sincere devotion". What for if he does not exist? - or is not worth devotion? There never was an unmistakable sign for his existence - only Muhammad's pretty unreliable words.
170 40/65e: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a and find out if he deserves it - if he exists.
171 40/65f: "- - - Allah, Lord of the Worlds - - -". Often claimed, never proved.
172 40/66c: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. Wrong. See 2/39b or 2/99 above.
173 40/66d: "- - - Allah, Lord of the Worlds - - -". Often claimed, never proved".
174 40/66e: "- - - Worlds - - -". Wrong. There are no 7 worlds like the Quran claims in 65/12, which the plural here refers to. Also see 26/77 above.
175 40/67a: “It is He (Allah*) Who has created you from dust - - -”. Wrong. Man was not made from dust. See 6/2b above.
176 40/67b: “(Allah then made you*) from a sperm drop - - -”. Wrong. You were not made from a sperm drop. You were made from the fusing of a sperm cell and an egg cell - the egg cell even is by far the biggest. From other places in the Quran it is clear that Muhammad believed the sperm came from inside the body, and was “seeds to plant” in a woman, and there started to grow like seeds do to become a fetus and then a baby. Any one inch tall god had known that this claim was wrong. Then who made the Quran?
177 40/67c: “(Allah*) lets you (living beings*) reach a Term appointed - - -”. Allah lets any living being reach the time for dying he has decided. Though if you are a sheep and are brought to Mecca before Hajj, it is easy to prove by means of statistics that you had had a much better chance to be alive after Hajj if you had stayed at home. And the same for a man in a battle.
178 40/67e: "- - - wisdom - - -". As for words related to knowledge in the Quran, see 26/83a above.
179 40/68a: "It is He (Allah*) who gives Life - - -". This interesting claim appears several places in the Quran - interesting because it never is proved, whereas both Jesus and Yahweh proved they have the power (if the Bible and/or the Quran is/are reliable on this point).
180 40/68b: " - - - He (Allah*) says to it, 'Be' and it is". And who knows - maybe he once said: "Be a son" and Jesus was. What human is able to understand the unfathomable thoughts and wishes of an omniscient god?
181 40/69a: "Seest thou (Muhammad?/Muslim?) not those that dispute concerning the Signs of Allah? How they turn away (from reality)?" This is pure, but not intended irony: As there is not one single valid proof or sign for Allah - many claims, but not a single valid one - it is the ones who believe in such claimed "signs" who have no contact with reality.
182 40/69c: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
183 40/69d: "How are they (non-Muslims*) turned away (from Reality (the Quran*))? - - -". A book full of mistakes, etc. does not represent reality.
184 40/70c: "- - - (revelations (from Allah*)) - - -". But does the Quran represent revelations? - and in case from whom, as gods are out of the question (too many mistakes, etc.)?
####185 40/70d: (A40/52 - English 2008 edition A40/51): "Since, as the Quran often points out, the fundamental truths set forth in all divine revelations are the same, a rejection of the last of them (the Quran*) amounts to a rejection of all the preceding ones (the Bible*)". #######Both these claims are wrong. Many of the fundamental truths are far from the same. The fundamental differences between the basic thoughts and rules, ethics and moral codes, etc. in the Quran and in the Bible - and especially compared to NT and its New Covenant (f.x. Luke 22/20) - are so enormous, that there is a Ginnunga Gap - or Abyss - (see the Vikings' religion and geography where it represents geographically the very end of the world) between them. The gap between the Quran and NT is such that in stark contradiction to Mr. Azad's claim here, is not possible not to reject the Quran if one believes in NT - and the same goes for the Quran compared to the Mosaic religion, even though the abyss may be a little - little - less there. Muhammad was way away from the "road" of the old prophets - not in the same line or religion at all, also this in 180 degree contradiction of Islam's never proved claim (a claim only possible to believe in for persons not knowing the Bible or believing in the disproved claim that the Bible was much falsified).
186 40/71-72: “When the yokes (shall be) round their (sinners in Hell*) necks, and the chains; they shall be dragged along – in the boiling fluid; then in the Fire they shall be burned.” Not a refined treatment, but efficient – and easy also for primitive men to understand. Daily life in Hell according to Muhammad or Allah (?). Also see 3/77b above.
187 40/74a: "In deterioration of Allah - - -". It is in deterioration of Allah only if Allah exists and is a main god - and one only have Muhammad's claimed visions - perhaps based on TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) - and his not to morally strong personality. And even if Allah should happen to exist, this claim further depends on that he is reasonably correctly described in the Quran with its many mistakes, etc.
188 40/74b: "Thus does Allah leave the Unbelievers to stray". This he only can do if he exists and in addition is a god. If not, their behavior is because of something else.
##189 40/75: “- - - the Truth (the Quran*) - - -”. To repeat things:
The Quran contains more than 1750 (likely 2ooo+) places with wrong facts. Add the ones we have overlooked (some more we have found during the work with this book will be added - perhaps 250 new ones? - 2ooo all together?) + all the other kinds of mistakes and other types of wrongs and you may have some 3000 or more places with mistaken facts, other errors, contradictions, etc. in one single book.
The Quran in addition contains at least 200+ “most likely“ wrong facts.
The Quran is likely to contain more mistaken facts we have not seen.
The Quran contains lots of invalid “signs” claiming to be indicating or “proving” Allah/Islam. The use of invalid arguments is the hallmark of cheats.
The Quran contains a number of invalid “proofs,” pretending to indicate or “prove” Allah/Islam. The use of invalid “signs” and “proofs” are strong hallmarks for cheats, swindlers, and deluders.
The Quran contains a huge number of claims and statements taken from thin air or resting on other not proved claims, statements, “signs”, or “proofs”. The use of such invalid arguments and cheap words is a hallmark of cheats and deceivers.
There is not one single statement, “sign” or “proof” in the Quran which really proves Allah - they without exception are logically invalid, mostly because it is not first proved that it really is Allah who is behind them. There are a few taken from the Bible that may indicate a god - not Allah, but a god. But the Bible talks about Yahweh, not about Allah (and the teachings are fundamentally so different - see 29/46 - that in spite of what the Quran and Hadith say, Allah is not the same god as the one Jesus told about - not unless he is schizophrenic.)
The Arab Quran contains more than 100 linguistic mistakes according to linguists.
The Quran is said to be pure Arabic. It contains a lot of non-Arabic words. We have seen different numbers, but perhaps 275 different words according to Arthur Jeffries (the word Quran is said to be one of them). For the story these are not serious, but they are mistakes compared to what the Quran says, and the Quran pretends to be perfect and without mistakes - sent down from an omniscient god. Islam has an explanation, though: Arabs has used the foreign words and made them Arab. A Negro does not become an Arab even if he moves to Arabia. A very practical way of making something look true only.
The Quran contains at least ca. 400 contradictions. (To be on the careful side we often say 300+)
The Quran contains at very least 400+ places where the original Arab text is so unclear that it is impossible to be sure what is really meant. (To be on the careful side we often say 300+)
The Quran contains lots and lots and lots of places where the text is unclear (at least 300+ only of "different ways of reading") - this is openly admitted also by Muslim scholar (you will find it in any reasonably thorough book explaining Quranic texts).
The Quran at best is partly true. There are very good reasons for doubt and skepticism.
It is also told that the Quran is a copy of a revered “the Mother of the Book” (= "the Mother of the Quran") in the Heaven of Allah. This has to be wrong. An omnipotent god impossibly can have revered - not kept as a funny curiosum, but revered!! - a book with that many mistakes and contradictions, that number of loose and without value claims and statements, that much unclear language, not to mention all the invalid “signs” and “proofs”- hallmarks of an imbecile or a cheat or deceiver. Besides: The other 124ooo+ earlier prophets according to Islam received a similar copy of the Mother Book. Pretend you were the prophets Hud or Salih living at least 2000 years before Muhammad (because Moses spoke about them according to the Quran, and he lived (?) some 1850 years before Muhammad - Hud and Salih consequently must have lived before that), or that you were one of the Indian prophets in the Americas before 1492 AD – or in the Arctic or in Australia 100 years before Botany Bay – the Quran and Islam claims that all people have had prophets. Then read the Quran and see how much you would understand and how much not – even words like cows, sheep, goats, camels, ships, coats of mail, and a number of other words – what did they mean in South America or Australia or in arctic Canada? And how much is irrelevant? – f.x. Muhammad’s family problems, all the facts and happenings relevant mostly for Arabia, etc.
Read the Quran with that in your mind – and weep. Or smile.
Would a god make or revere or use copies of such a claimed timeless and unchangeable book for his prophets through all times and all over the world? – Remember we here talk about the perfect and timeless Mother Book that the Quran and all other not falsified books sent down to the prophets all over the world from Adam to Muhammad are exact copies of. This in spite of that Islam explains that the reason for new prophets and new scriptures were that time changed, so the scriptures had to be changed a little - how to change perfect copies of the one and perfect Mother Book and all its errors?
190 40/77b: “- - - the Promise of Allah is true - - -“. So much is wrong in the Quran, that also this has to be proved = there also are serious reasons for doubts about whether the religion itself is true. If it is a made up book, of course “Allah’s promises” also are not true. Also remember that through all times there has not been one single proved case of a promise from Allah which has come true - yes, there is not even one single proved case where it is proved that Allah even has given a promise (if you here points to texts in the Quran, remember that a book so full of mistakes, contradiction, etc., etc., is not from any god, and thus also not from Allah if he is a god (but it is possible if he is not a god). Lots and lots of claims, but not one reliably proved case.
191 40/77e: "- - - (- - - Our (Allah's*) Mercy) - - -". See 1/1a above.
192 40/77f: "- - - it is to Us (Allah*) that they (people# shall (all) return (on the Day of Doom)". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere - and a similar claim you find in most religions, as claims are cheap.
#193 40/78a: "We (Allah*) did aforetime send messengers - - -". The Quran claims that all communities all over the world through all times have been sent prophets from Allah teaching Islam. Neither science nor Islam has found any traces from any of them neither in art, architecture (f.x. mosques), archeology, religion, history, folklore, or even in fairy tales. More comments about this claim really should not be necessary. Islam will have to bring proofs, not just claims, to be believed - claims are too cheap.
#195 40/78d: "It was not (possible) for any messenger to bring a Sign except by leave of Allah - - -". Is this why Muhammad never brought a reliable sign, not to mention a proof for Allah or for his own connection to a god? Muhammad never brought even a tiny wee bit of a corner of such a sign or proof. (Hadiths claims he did, but the Quran indirectly, but totally unmistakably proves that all those stories about Muhammad and miracles or foretelling/prophesies are made up ones - a fact Islam admits by stating that there are no miracles connected to Muhammad "except the making of the Quran".
It is no problem for f.x. a false prophet/messenger to claim he was/is bringing signs - and claim was all that Muhammad did here, as he never proved even one of his claimed signs.
196 40/78e: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
197 40/78f: "- - - the matter was decided in Truth - - -". In truth only if you are lucky, if the basis was the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. There may be points in that book which is true, though hardly any of the central points. And with justice only if one do not have to use one of the unjust and/or immoral ones of the laws in sharia.
198 40/78i: "- - - Falsehoods". In this and many other connections: Anything not in agreement with the Quran, no matter whether it is true or not.
199 40/79: "It is Allah Who made cattle for you - - -". Typical the Quran - claim glory for Allah, but never able to prove even a comma of the claims. Invalid as indication or proof for Allah. Also see 11/7a above.
200 40/81b: "- - - which of the Signs of Allah will ye (people*) deny". As there is not one single valid sign (Quran-speak for proof) for Allah anywhere, there is not one to deny. As for the wrongly claimed "signs", the laws of logic deny them all (there never is proved that Allah really is behind the claimed signs - Quran-speak for "proofs for Allah" - and then the logic is gone and the claimed sign invalid - and more than invalid as a proof for a deity, because who is it who uses invalid proofs and fast talk? - the cheat, the deceiver, and the swindler.
#201 40/82a: “Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the End of those before them?” In and around Arabia there were - and are - scattered ruins. Muhammad told they were all remains of people punished by Allah for sins (and for good measure they were stronger than Muhammad’s contemporary Arabs). Believe it who wants - but contact a professor of history or a psychologist if you do. Similar claims at least in 3/137 – 6/11 – 7/4 – 9/70 -16/36 - 21/6 - 40/21.
A sweet and naive story: Also in Pakistan there are ruins. The authorities debated in 2010 to repair/secure some of them to attract tourists. Local Muslims instead proposed to put placards on them, telling that this was how Allah punished non-Muslims and sinners(!!)
202 40/83a: "For with their (people of the older times*) messengers - - -". Muhammad and the Quran claim that all people to all times and all over the world have got messengers and prophets to teach them about Allah - Hadiths mention the number 124ooo, and there even may have been more. Neither science nor Islam has ever found the smallest trace from such teaching before 610 AD except among the Jews, and there the god was Yahweh, not Allah, and the teaching in realty quite different. As not even Islam has found clear such traces, you are free to believe whatever you want.
203 40/83b: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. See 2/39b or 2/99 above.
204 40/83c: "- - - Knowledge - - -". As you understand from this verse, knowledge counted little, as long as it was not about the Quran and Islam. Also see 26/83a above.
205 40/84b: "- - - Allah - the One God - - -". See 2/255a, 2/165c, 6/106b and 25/18a above.
206 40/85c: "(Such has been) Allah's way of dealing with His servants (from the most ancient times)". Neither science, nor Islam has ever been able to find traces from a religion like Islam older than 610 AD when Muhammad started his religion. The one somewhat similar monotheistic religion is the one of the Jews and to a degree the Christian one - which are older than 610 AD - but those ones are about Yahweh, not Allah (and in spite of Muhammad's never proved claims, those religions are too different from Islam; those two gods are not the same god. This is even clearer as science - and also (unintentionally) Islam - has proved that also another Islamic claim is wrong: The Bible is not falsified. (Islam loudly has proved this, by never finding one single proof for their claims).
6351 + 206 = 6557 remarks.
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".
