1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 42
18 May 2014
SURAH 42: ASH-SURAH (Consultation)
(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 42/3a: “Thus doth (He (Allah*)) send inspiration - - -.” Verses and surahs that full of errors, were not sent by an omniscient god. Also see 42/3c below.
003 42/3c: “Thus doth (He (Allah*)) send inspiration to thee (Muhammad*) as He did to those (prophets*) before thee - - -.” This is directly wrong and contradicted by the Bible - but in this case we do not accuse Muhammad of lying - he did not know the Bible and most likely just said what he wanted his audience to hear, not knowing whether it was right or wrong. For Muhammad it was essential to impress on his audience and followers that he was a normal prophet just like the old ones in the Bible. Because of that you find that a large part of the stories are told a bit twisted to become parallels to Muhammad's life and activity at the time when the story was told - so also here; Muhammad claimed he got most of his claimed information from Allah via inspiration, and then the old prophets had to have received it in the same way for Muhammad to be similar to them. Unluckily the Bible tells that Yahweh only used direct contact (Abraham, Moses, Samuel, Jesus, and a few more), visions, and dreams (4. Mos. 12/6-7). Sending messages to prophets by means of inspiration, is nowhere mentioned in the Bible. 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.
###004 42/3d: (A42/2): "I.e. the basic truths propounded in the Quranic revelation - - - are the same as those revealed to the earlier (Jewish*) prophets". To be very polite: This is not true. There are oceans between Muhammad and the Jewish prophets - deep fundamental differences and contradictions, especially compared to Jesus and his new covenant. Muhammad was not in that line of prophets - not even in the same moral world - and in a very different religion - one of war and suppression, dishonesty and apartheid, simply 180 degree contradiction to Jesus' teachings, and a lot different from the older prophets, too.
The fact is that the many and deep differences between the messages in the Bible and the Quran, are one of the absolute proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
005 42/3e: "- - - Allah, Exalted in Power - - -". He in case never clearly has proved his power.
006 42/3f: “- - - (Allah is*) full of Wisdom.” See 40/75 and 41/12.
007 42/4a: "To Him (Allah*) belongs all that is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved - not even his very existence is proved.
009 42/5b: "- - - (- - - His (Allah's*) Glory ) - - -". Often claimed, never neither shown, nor proved.
010 42/5c: "- - - the Praises of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above and see if he deserves it - if he exists, and if he in case really is a god.
011 42/5d: "- - - pray - - -". What is the idea with prayers in the Quran? If Allah predestines everything long before, and in accordance with his Plan, which nobody and nothing can change, also prayers can change nothing, and is just a waste of time and effort.
012 42/5e: "- - - pray (to Allah*) for forgiveness - - -". Only 2 can forgive - the victim and a god. Allah thus only can forgive if he exists and if he in addition is a god, except in the cases where he is the victim - - - if he exists.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
013 42/5f: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book where so much is wrong like in the Quran, words like "verily" cannot be taken at face value, unless there are proofs.
014 42/5h: "- - - Allah is He, the oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Islamic moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of the sharia laws, and see if you agree. When grim realities are covered by nice words, the realities always are more reliable than cheap words and claims.
015 42/6b: "- - - take as protectors others (other gods*) besides Him (Allah*) - - -". See 25/18a above.
016 42/6c: "- - - Allah doth watch over them (in this case non-Muslims - so that Muhammad did not have to*) - - -". Only possible if Allah exists.
017 42/7a: “Thus have We (Allah*) sent by inspiration - - -". See 42/3a+c above.
018 42/7f: “- - - the Day of Assembly, of which there is no doubt - - -”. In a book with as many mistakes (see 40/75) there is reason for doubting anything:
Is Allah omnipotent and made the Quran? – or not?
Is Allah omnipotent, and did not make the Quran? Also the fact that many of the mistakes etc. in the book are in accordance with what was believed to be good knowledge and science in Arabia at the time of Muhammad, makes one wonder.
Did some human in Arabia make the Quran? - that would explain a lot, especially if he was mentally ill.
Did the dark forces make the Quran? - that in case would explain many verses in the Quran, especially in the surahs from Medina, and many points in the Quran's moral code and in the Sharia laws.
Is there a Hell? – and in case is the description in the Quran correct? – there are so many other mistakes in the book.
Is there a Day of Doom? – and in case is it run by Allah? – or by Yahweh? – or by some other god(s)?
Is there a Paradise? – and is it in case a paradise for the body like in the Quran? – or for the soul like in the Bible and in many other religions? – or something else.
This is a problem with the Quran: There are so many mistakes, contradictions, etc., that there are reasons for doubting anything, and impossible to know if something is true, and in that case what? What is true? - what is al-Taqiyya? – what is plainly and simply wrong?
A last day will come for man sometime in the future – but as there are so much wrong in the Quran, there is every reason to doubt that the description (or even existence) of Allah, and then consequently to believe that the description of Allah’s arrangement of the last day, also is wrong.
And what about each and every Muslim if the Quran is partly or completely wrong, and they because of threats, social pressure or simply by the glorified plain and blind belief, have not had the chance to find out in time? If there is nothing after this life, they will have lost nothing – except they have made this life difficult or a hell or worse for many. But if there is something afterwards, it may be a rude awakening, because there only are two things which are sure about the Quran: No god – omniscient or not – made (not to mention revered in his own Heaven) a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, etc., and with that much invalid logic and as invalid “signs” and “proofs”. And no good and benevolent god made a religion with partly immoral or highly immoral moral codes, partly unethical ethical codes, and partly unjust - some of them highly unjust - laws.
019 42/8b: “If Allah had so willed, He could have made them (humanity*) a single people - - -”. At that time this was impossible - - - unless Allah exists and is a god.
020 42/8c: “- - - He (Allah*) admits whom He will to His Mercy - - -.” One of the big differences between Yahweh and Allah: Yahweh admits - and strongly wants ("the lost sheep" - Matt. 18/12-14 - and others)- anyone who wants and qualify for Paradise, even if he/she does not qualify until in "the 11. hour" (Matt. 20/8-13).
021 42/8d: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.
022 42/8g: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
023 42/8i: "- - - the wrongdoers will have no protector or helper". See 42/8g just above. In addition there is this big gap between who is a wrongdoer in the war religion Islam, and in the NT. A wrongdoer in Islam, simply may be a god or even very good person in a normal religion - - - and then he may qualify for f.x. Yahweh's Paradise.
There are so many and deep differences between who is a good person in normal religions - included f.x. followers of Yahweh - and cultures, compared to Islam, that it is one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
024 42/9b: "But it is Allah - He is the Protector - - -". This only may be true if Allah exists, and if he is a major god. And it only is true if the Quran describes him and his religion correctly (if he belongs to the dark forces, he may be quite a protector!)
If Allah happens to be from the dark forces - like many points in the Quran may indicate, even though we believe that not even a devil had sent a "holy" book of a quality like the Quran (unless he was forced to) - then he really is some protector./p>
025 42/9c: "- - - Allah - - - it is He Who gives life to the dead". This very interesting claim surfaces several places in the Quran - interesting because it never is anything but words, as Allah never proved this (or anything else of any consequence), whereas Yahweh and his men proved it time and again if the Bible and/or the Quran are/is correct. See 7/158i and 5/110d above.
026 42/9d: "- - - it is He (Allah*) Who has power over all things". He in case never clearly has proved such power.
#####027 42/10a: “Whatever it be - - - such is Allah my (Muhammad's*) Lord: In Him I trust, and to Him I turn.” #####Muhammad is praying to or talking about Allah, not quoting him. In a book at least 13.7 billion years old (from before creation of the Universe) – and in a copy of a Mother Book (13/39b, 43/4, 85/21-22) revered by Allah in his own “home”. This is one of the at least 8 places in the Quran where Muhammad himself is talking. Some Muslims want to explain this away with that Allah or someone has forgotten the word "Say", but if that is the case, how many more places in the Quran has he then made mistakes? - and how can an omniscient god make mistakes or forget? It also tells something about Muslims' honesty, that some translators or commentators add the word "Say" in front of places Muhammad is speaking in the Quran, indicating that it in reality is Allah who has said it. (They explain that the text makes the word "Say" necessary - and they are right if the meaning is to explain away what the Quran really says.)
034b We may add that the information that Muhammad here changes to praying, is from Islamists. We will add that just in this case we disagree with them - we see it as part of his speech, not as a prayer.
##028 42/10b: "- - - the decision thereof is with Allah - - -". According to the Quran, Allah decides - and predestines - everything. We may also add that just this verse is one of the arguments some Muslim scholars (f.x. Ibn Hazm and Razi) use when they claim it is not correct to use analogy (qiyas) in the religious laws, where no clear rules exist, because it is up to Allah to decide. An interesting piece of information, as it proves that the Quran does not explain everything, even though this is claimed now and then - not to mention explains everything clearly.
029 42/10c: "In Him (Allah*) I (Muhammad*) trust, and to Him I return". Three possible comments: If Allah does not exist and Muhammad knew it: Muhammad cheated his followers to get power, etc. If Allah do not exist, but Muhammad believed so (f.x. because of his possible illness - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, TLE). Or if Allah existed in the dark forces, but had cheated Muhammad to believe he was a god - f.x. by impersonating Gabriel: Poor Muhammad if there is a next life. The third possibility - that Allah exists and is a god - in reality is not possible, if he is behind the Quran - no god is involved in a claimed holy book of that quality.
030 42/11a: "(He Allah') is) the Creator of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere. See 11/7a and 21/56c above.
031 42/11d: "- - - there is nothing whatever like unto Him (Allah*) - - -". There is the nagging question: What about f.x. Yahweh? - a god the Quran admits exists, even though it wrongly mixes him with Allah. This question becomes even stronger as Allah never was able to prove anything at all - not even his own existence - whereas Yahweh has proved both his existence and his power many times, if the Bible and/or the Quran tell(s) the truth about this.
032 42/11e: "- - - He (Allah*) is the One that hears and sees (all things)". See 2/233h above.
033 42/12a: "To Him (Allah*) belong the keys of heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Similar claims many places in the Quran - to Allah belongs everything - but not one proof. Only loose claims.
034 42/12b: "To Him (Allah*) belong the keys of heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says the heaven, etc. belong to Yahweh, not to Allah. 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.
035 42/12d: "He (Allah*) enlarges and restricts the Sustenance to whom He will - - -". Muhammad's standard explanation for why some have a better life than others - even non-Muslims: Allah has decided it so in his unfathomable wisdom - - - but sooth yourself; you will be rewarded for your good deeds and the bad people punished for their bad ones in the next life. Cheap and easy words, and impossible to prove wrong. But also never proved true. Never.
036 42/12e: "- - - He (Allah*) knows full well all things". Not if he made the Quran. And also see 2/233h above.
037 42/13a: “The same religion has He (Allah*) established - - -”. With all the mistakes (see f.x. 40/75) there are good reasons for asking if it really is an omnipotent god who made this religion. At least he did not make the Quran with all its errors, etc. in case.
##038 42/13d: “The same religion (Islam*) has He (Allah*) established for - - - Abraham, Moses, and Jesus”. Neither the Quran, nor Hadith, nor Islam has brought the slightest valid proof for this - only words and claims. And at least when it comes to Jesus, it is provably wrong. The teachings of Jesus and the ones of Muhammad are fundamentally too different. Of course Muslims say that the Bible is falsified and that scriptures have disappeared – that is the only way out they have. But they have yet to prove the first and to prove that scriptures documenting all the points Islam says are wrong in other religions, have disappeared and none reliable and impossible to misunderstand ones have reappeared among the relevant 12ooo - 13ooo scriptures + the some 32ooo with references to the Bible which exists. “Strong claims need strong proofs.” This even more so as science by means of all the old scriptures has proved that the Bible is not falsified – a fact that is extra clear for NT. And as central: Islam has proved the same even stronger, by being unable to find one single proved falsification among all those scriptures. You bet they had told about it if they had found even one.As for Abraham and Moses being good Muslims, for one thing that is strongly contradicted by the Bible, which tells their god was Yahweh, and for another thing: As mentioned no traces from Islam older than 610 AD has ever or anywhere been found - not even by Islam - - - and Moses lived some 2000 years before, and Abraham some 2500+ years before.
#############There also is another hard fact here concerning Jesus: Jesus lived deep inside the times of written history. We know for sure that there was no religion like Islam and no god like Allah anywhere in the Roman Empire not before Jesus and not until several centuries after him - not until after 610 AD when Muhammad started his mission. This is an indisputable historical fact. (May be one cannot prove the details of Jesus' teaching from historical sources outside the Bible, but one easily can prove that the Mosaic religion and something like Islam was not the religion among the Jews at the time of Jesus, and thus that the basis for Jesus' teaching was the Mosaic religion and not something like Islam). This means Jesus was no Muslim. Another historical fact is that also early Christianity is known from such sources, and it had no similarity to Islam - and the same for the Jewish religion. The claim that Jesus was a Muslim and preached Islam thus is proved by written history to be made up claims (claims also never proved true by Islam - like normal for Muhammad's very many claims).
A point: In no case even OT can have been falsified until after 33 AD. If falsified before, the claimed good Muslim Jesus had warned about it. (And science knows very clearly that nothing in the Bible is falsified later.)
039 42/13g: "- - - by inspiration - - -". Muhammad claimed he god much of his information from Allah via inspiration (a very convenient way, especially if some or all was not from Allah). This is one of the indications or more for that Yahweh and Allah was not the same god: Yahweh did not use inspiration for transferring information, according to the Bible. 4. Mos. 12/6-8 clearly tells that Yahweh used direct contact, vision, or speaking in dream. Inspiration is never mentioned in such connections in the Bible. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. 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.
040 42/13h: "- - - to those (non-Muslims*) who worship other things (gods*) than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou (Allah*) callest them". If Allah exists. If he is a major god. And if he is correctly described in the Quran in spite of all its errors, etc.
041 42/13k: "Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself - - -". The old fact: Possible - possible - only if he exists and is something supernatural.
042 42/13l: "Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases - - -". Whereas Yahweh in his covenant via Jesus tries to get all. "The lost sheep", "the 11. hour", "it is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick (Matt.9/12)". The same god? No.
043 42/13m: "- - - (Allah*) guides - - -". Not possible by means of a book with so much wrong and immoral moral like in the Quran - that is to say: It is possible, but where does then the "trip" end?
####044 42/13o: (YA4541): "Faith, Duty, or Religion, is not a matter to dispute about". Reflect on this - and as for Islam you may remember that the Quran with all its errors is not from any god. If you cannot reflect or dispute, you cannot find the truth - you only can believe because your fathers believed "taqlid" - because critical thinking is prohibited by a book full of mistakes, dictated by a man of doubtful moral, but liking power and women - - - and riches for bribes. Why did he prohibit it if his tales really were true?)
045 42/14a: "And they (Jews, Christians*) became divided only after knowledge reached them - through selfish envy as between themselves." Oh, no, this hardly was the reasons for the division of the Christians from the Jews. The reason was that the most Jews did not accept Jesus. Partly was he not the Earthly king they hoped for (to free them out from the Romans), and partly was his teaching a bit different from what they were used to. And for many of the sects?. The real reason often was different understanding - or misunderstanding - of points in the scriptures. But the Quran may be partly true here, as there clearly has been many a self proclaimed prophet who has been as interested in power and/or wealth - and a few times women. A central question here is: Was Muhammad one of those? The enormous number of mistakes in the Quran proves 120%+ that it is not from a god. The fact that nearly everything and every not Biblical tale is from in or around Arabia, indicate that the maker of the book knew little or nothing about the rest of the world. The mistakes which was in accordance with wrong "science" at the time of Muhammad, strongly indicates the book was made by someone living at that time. On the other hand there is a chance that Muhammad himself believed at least parts of what he told, if he had this mental illness - TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) - which modern medical science suspects.
There also is this repeated and repeated claim that the Jews and Christians falsified the Bible to have an (economically) richer life here on Earth. But neither Muhammad nor Islam nor any Muslim has ever been able to explain how it was possible to falsify tens of thousands or more of manuscripts spread over 3 continents, how it was possible to agree on what to falsify, when it was done, or how it was possible to falsify all of them in ways impossible for modern technology to trace (many claims, but none of them possible).
#####But perhaps as revealing is that neither Muhammad nor Islam nor Muslims ever gave a believable explanation on how Jews and Christians could become richer by means of making a war and robbery religion peaceful and honest, as contrast to Muslims becoming rich just on stealing/robbing, extortion, slave taking, suppression, etc.? (Oh, we know Christians have been involved in lots of wars, etc. (though seldom as horribly inhuman as some of the Muslims wars - read Muslim political history before you protest), but that was in spite of or disusing the religion, not because the religion incited to it, like in Islam.)
046 42/14e: "- - - truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 2/2b above.
047 42/15d: “I (Muhammad*) believe in the Book (the Quran*) that Allah has sent down - - -.” No omniscient god has sent down a book with that many mistakes, etc., not to mention revered it in his own home as “the Mother Book”.
048 42/15e: "- - - justly - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, partly unethical ethical code and partly unjust judicial code.
049 42/15f: "Allah is our (Muslims'*) Lord and your (Jews', Christians', Pagans'*) Lord - - -". Wrong. There are so big and deep differences between Islam and the others, and specially NT and its new covenant, that none of them has the same god as the Muslims. This is even clearer as science - and even more so Islam - has proved that the standard and only Islamic claimed, but never documented, "explanation" when it comes to Yahweh and the differences between him and Allah - that the Bible is falsified - is wrong. Yahweh and Allah are so different that they simply are 2 different gods - if both exist. The only possible exception is if the god is strongly schizophrenic.
050 42/15h: “There is no contention between us (Muslims*) and you (“infidels”).” Please tell that in the old Israel after the Arab occupation, and the modern Darfur. And in Sind/India, and in Armenia, not to mention in Africa and many other places in older times - and some places even nowadays. Thoroughly contradicted by Islamic history of aggression, stealing/looting, slave taking, war and suppression.
051 42/15j: “There is no contention between us (Muslims*) and you (“infidels”).” May be not in 614 – 618 AD. But later Islam was the power class = Muslims powerful (with Muhammad as dictator), and non-Muslims “thoroughly subdued” - - - and with the religion a lot changed = contradictions and abrogations in the Quran. This verse is abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 28 abrogations).
052 42/15k: "- - - to Him (Allah*) is (our) final goal (at the Day of Doom)". Often claimed, never documented. And contradicted by the Bible.
053 42/16a: "But those who dispute concerning Allah after He has been accepted - - - on them is Wrath, and for them will be a Penalty terrible." After you have become a Muslim, it is prohibited and punishable to utter doubt about anything concerning the religion. This even if they find something is wrong. (All the same out of the non-Muslims who today enters Islam, 3 out of 4 leave it within 3 years. ######It is thought provoking that so many adults leave after having got more knowledge about the religion. (Adults normally have the ability of being able to evaluate facts, claims, etc. - children normally are too strongly indoctrinated before they grow old enough to develop this ability.))
054 42/17a: “It is Allah Who has sent down the Book (the Quran*) - - -.” See 40/75 and 42/15d above.
055 42/17b: “It is Allah Who has sent down the Book (the Quran*) in Truth (a claim, not a proved fact*) - - -”. See 40/75 above - and others, f.x. 2/2b and 13/1g above.
056 42/17c: "- - - the Balance - - -". The scale to weigh the good and the bad deeds. From the made up "The Testament of Abraham". Originally likely borrowed from the Zoroastrians.
####057 42/18d: “- - - and know it (the Quran*) is the Truth.” That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See 13/1g and 40/75 above - and others. ######Actually the Quran is proved wrong on many points - see f.x. our Book A: "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran", and even that one is not complete.
Another point: Have you ever noticed that the one most eager to stress how truthful and reliable he is, is the cheat and deceiver?. Also in the Bible the word is used, but not monomaniacal and intensely like in the Quran. It also is revealing that both Islam and its Muslims normally do not use the claim "Islam is the Religion of Honesty". #####It is too far out even for a religion of war claiming it is "the religion of peace", and a religion built on a book overfull of errors, but claiming to be "the religion of truth".
Worse: #######Whenever Muhammad claimed the Quran was the truth, he knew that at least a few points in the book were not true - he f.x. provably knew that real proofs for a god/miracles would make at least some witnesses to it believe (cfr. his tale f.x. about the pharaoh's sorcerers' reaction to Moses' small miracle). Now al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), etc., deceit, disuse of even oaths, etc. are permitted in Islam - even advised - if necessary to defend or promote the religion (something also Muslims should remember when they read Muhammad's retelling(?) of Allah's(?) words = the Quran), but dishonesty and deceit are dishonesty and deceit.
058 42/18e: "- - - verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See f.x. 2/2b and 42/5f above. All the mistakes, etc. prove that it at least is not the full truth, and all the apartheid, suppression, and blood prove that it is not from a good and benevolent god.
059 42/18f: "- - - verily those that dispute the Hour are far astray." If the Quran is speaking the full truth and is from a god, Muslims are right, and all others are wrong. As there are serious mistakes in the Quran and it is not from a god, all Muslims may be wrong and some of the others may be right.
060 42/19a: "Gracious is Allah - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you agree.
061 42/19b: "He (Allah*) gives Sustenance to whom He pleases - - -". This is the standard explanation in the Quran - and in Islam - for why some live a better life than others, and for why non-Muslims often has a better life than most Muslims: Allah wants it like that.
062 42/19c: "- - - He (Allah*) has Power and can carry out His Will". Thought provoking here: Allah NEVER clearly has demonstrated his claimed power - yes, not even his existence. Everything only is words from a man whom even central and relevant Islamic literature shows wanted riches (for attracting and keeping followers) and power - and women - and had a doubtful moral (al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), deception, break your oaths if that paid, rob and rape and enslave your victims, murder your opponents, etc.). Whenever reality tells one story, and nice words another, we always believe the reality, not the nice propaganda.
063 42/20a: "To anyone that desires the tilth of the Hereafter, We (Allah*) give increase in his tilth, and to anyone that desires the tilth of this world, We grant somewhat thereof, but he has no share or lot of the Hereafter". A never proved claim, only the standard explanation in the Quran for different standards of living - Allah decides it so. But sooth yourself - you will be better off in the next life when you end in Paradise and he in Hell.
###Also the big differences between the Bible's and the Quran's hells are more than big and fundamental enough to prove that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - if they had been, also their hells had been more or less identical.
064 42/21b: "- - - established some religion without the permission of Allah?" Allah has never - never - demonstrated neither power to permit, nor to deny permission for other religions or gods - f.x. Yahweh. Actually if he had had such power, it had not been necessary for Muslims to wage war against others - Allah had fixed it much easier himself. (And in this connection remember that for an omniscient god there is no reason to test his followers by f.x. sending them to war (but a good reason for a leader wanting power, and riches for more power - and women) - he knows everything anyhow).
065 42/21c: "Had it not been for the Decree of Judgment, the matter (other gods true or not*) would have been decided between them (non-Muslims*) (at once)". Truth? - or just explaining away Allah's/Muhammad's inability to do anything about it?
066 42/21e: "- - - verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 2/2b above.
067 42/21g: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
068 42/21h: "- - - grievous Penalty". See 3/77b above.
069 42/22c: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
070 42/22f: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
071 42/22g: "- - - (Muslims*) will be in the luxuriant meads of the Gardens - - -". Often claimed, never proved. And claims are cheap - similar claims you find in most religions, they are that cheap. Only Yahweh has perhaps - perhaps - proved something.
In the Quran's paradise there is "luxuriant meads" - and luxurious food and drink and women. In Yahweh's "you become like the angels" (Matt. 22/30). The two are not the same god - if they had been, their paradise had been one and the same.
072 42/22i: "- - - there (in Paradise*) they (Muslims*) shall have - - - all that they will wish for". If the Quran tells the truth - and if Allah exists and is a god. Also see10/9f above.
##073 42/22k: "- - - (Paradise is*) the magnificent Bounty (of Allah)". For a claimed eternal paradise run by an omniscient and omnipotent god, we are not impressed: Only earthly luxury + lots of women for the men. F.x. nothing to do and no intellectual activity - a most boring place in the long run. But likely the top of what poor, naive and uneducated desert dwelling rough warriors were able to dream about - like their visualizing of an emperor's life and harem on Earth.
Compare this to Yahweh's, Jesus', and the Bible's Paradise, where "you become like the angels" (Matt. 22/30). Not the same god, not the same religion.
074 42/23a: "That is (the Bounty) - - -". The word "That" here refers to the claimed paradise of Islam. See 10/9f above.
075 42/23b: "- - - Glad Tidings - - -". Because Islam is a war religion, it is from disturbing to horrible tidings for all non-Muslims. For Muslims it is glad tidings for the ones who grow rich and/or powerful from robbing and suppressing or enslaving fellow human beings, and for persons needing a religion to lean to - and the last ones find the strength they look for in any religion in case they really believe in it, a fact you meet in any religion. But in the end Islam only is glad news also for these ones, if the Quran is from a god. And no god makes a book with that much wrong contents, and as it is from no god, what will be the tidings for Muslims if there is a next life?
076 42/23d: "- - - righteous deeds". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance to its own partly immoral moral code. Good righteous deeds f.x. were to steal and rob and extort and suppress and kill for Allah and Muhammad - if Allah exists, if not in reality only for Muhammad - and to rape female captives taken in the name of Allah, not to mention to stone or whip raped women who could not bring 4 male witnesses to the very act, for that it was rape. Etc., etc.
077 42/23g: "No reward do I (Muhammad*) ask of you for this except the love of those near of kin". Well, and except 20% of all stolen goods and enslaved people - 100% if they gave in without a fight - 2.5% (average) of all your belongings each and every year in tax (though it is likely Muhammad used little of just this point personally), plenty of women and undisputed and total power over you, + lots of warriors to fight and may be die for me, among other things. One of the in reality most and strongest contradicted and abrogated by reality verse in all the Quran. Good propaganda towards followers unable to think for themselves.
Two words: Hypocrisy. Dishonesty.
##########One of the places where Muhammad knew he was lying in the Quran.
078 42/23h: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". See 1/1a above.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
079 42/23i: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Ready to appreciate (service)". If he exists, if he is a major god, and if he is correctly described in the Quran.
080 42/24d: "He (Muhammad*) has forged a falsehood against Allah?" Already at that time many saw that something was wrong with Islam - but Muhammad became military and economically too strong for them.
081 42/24e: “- - - if Allah willed - - -". See 14/19d above.
082 42/24h: "And Allah - - - proves the Truth by His Words". As long as Allah is unable to prove they really are his words, the words from a man with a moral like showed (NB: Notice that we say "showed", not "claimed") in the Quran and other central Islamic literature, carries no weight as proofs, as long as they are not backed by real proofs - words are too cheap. "A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion" - a claim never is a proof, and when it comes to central religious points in the Quran, there only are claims and statements, never proved facts about Allah or about Islam being a real and not a made up religion.
###083 42/24i: “And Allah - - - proves the Truth by His Words.” Muhammad was asked many times to prove his - or presumably Allah’s - words but he never did, and seemed never to be able to, this even more so, as f.x. some of his “explanations” for why he never could prove anything, an intelligent man like him knew were lies. And the words of the Quran prove not a thing because the Quran accepts the use of dishonesty in words and deeds.
This quote simply is fast talk.
###084 42/24j: “And Allah - - - proves the Truth by His Words.” Muhammad was asked many times to prove his - or presumably Allah’s - words, but he never did, and seemed never to be able to, this even more so, as f.x. some of his “explanations” for why he never could prove anything, an intelligent man like him knew were lies (f.x. that real miracles would make no-one believe anyhow). And the words of the Quran prove not a thing, among other reasons because:
Far too many mistakes pretending to be facts. (Swindle?)
Far too many loose statements pretending to be facts. (Swindle?)
Far too many invalid “signs” pretending to be documentation. (Swindle?)
Far too many invalid or even wrong "proofs" pretending to be documentation. (Swindle?)
Some obvious lies – f.x. that miracles would make no-one believe, and that Muhammad wanted no payment (in spite of what Muslims claim, Muhammad was well off when he died - estates in Mecca, Medina, and Fadang, and more - even though he had spent fortunes for bribes for followers/power, and lots of women also cost something). (Swindle.)
Muhammad was unable to provide anything but fast-talk when asked for proofs. (Swindle?)
Lots of invalid use of logic. (Swindle?)
Lots of contradictions (– proves of lies?)
Lots of unclear language - at least 500+ confirmed by Muslim scholars. (Not from a god.)
Lots of fast talk. (Suspicious.)
The Quran has few real details, it jumps back and forth in its story, and it has unclear tales and explanations on many points. According to science these normally are indications for a cheat or deceiver. They mention one more such an indication - that cheats and deceivers have a tendency to talk with a higher pitch when spinning tales. For natural reasons it is impossible to find out in Muhammad did so.
These all are hallmarks of a crook and a cheat and a deceiver.
####What does this mean for the religion?
085 42/24k: "- - - the Truth - - -". That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See 13/1g and 40/75 above.
086 42/24l: “- - - the Truth (the teachings in the Quran*) - - -.” With that many mistakes and worse, the teachings in the Quran at best is partly true.
087 42/24m: "For He (Allah*) knows well the secrets of all hearts". Similar to 42/25 below. Also see 2/33e above.
088 42:25a: "He (Allah*) is the One that accepts repentance - - -". This only may be true if he exists and is a god.
089 42/25c: "- - - (Allah*) forgives sins - - -". This only is true if he exists and is a god - if not he cannot forgive sins.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
090 42/25ca: "- - - sins - - -". Remember that words like this in the Quran is meant in accordance with the book's partly immoral moral code.
091 42/25d: "- - - He (Allah*) knows all that ye do". The old warning and reminder. But also see 2/233h above.
092 42/26e: "And He (Allah*) listens - - -". This He only can do if he exists and is something supernatural.
093 42/27a: “If Allah were to enlarge the provision for His Servants, they would indeed transgress beyond all bounds through earth - - -“, - a seemingly rational reasons why to become a Muslim did not automatically mean to become well off: It is the will of Allah, of course.
#094 42/27b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Servants - - -". The Quran itself and Muslims and Islam claim that the language in the Quran is so clear - easy to understand, impossible to misunderstand, and distinct - that it very clearness is a proof for that it is made by a god. All the same there f.x. are lots and lots and lots of words and expressions which can have more than one meaning. This is one of them. If nothing else is indicated, this expression may mean:
All good Muslims.
All claimed prophets/messengers through the times.
In some cases it may mean the angels or all sentient beings, included the angels.
In some cases it even may include the jinns.
And used in singular it means Muhammad, if nothing else is indicated.
If clearness proves a god, like the Quran says one place, what then does unclearness prove?
095 42/27d: "- - - He (Allah*) is with his Servants (see just above*) Well-Acquainted - - -". The old warning: Be bad and get punishment, be good and get reward. But if it is true that Allah knows everything: WHY THEN DOES HE HAVE TO TEST THEM - F.X. BY SENDING THEM ON RAIDS FOR RICHES AND CAPTIVES/SLAVES - LIKE THE QURAN TELLS TIME AND TIME AGAIN?!
096 42/28a: "He (Allah*) is the One that sends down rain - - -". Muhammad is totally shameless when it comes to use natural phenomena without the slightest documentation, for glorification and "proof" for his god - just like any pagan priest. All such cases are entirely without value as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who does it. The only thing the use of invalid claims""signs"/"proof" really prove, is that the user has no real arguments or proofs - if he had had, he had used them instead. More sinister: Who is it normally who uses invalid arguments and "proofs"? - the cheat, charlatan, swindler, and deceiver.
097 42/28b: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Protector - - -". Only possible - possible - if he exists and is something supernatural.
098 42/28c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.
099 42/28d: "(Allah) is Worthy of all Praise". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Islamic moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of the sharia laws, and the Islamic rules for murdering opponents and for warfare, suppression, stealing/robbing, rape, enslaving, lying (al-Taqiyya, Kitman), deceiving, breaking oaths, etc., and see if you agree.
100 42/29a: “- - - His (Allah’s*) Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.
101 42/29b: "- - - the creation (by Allah*) of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Often claimed, never proved. See 11/7a and 21/56c+e above.
102 42/29e: “- - - He (Allah*) has the power to gather them (the living creatures*) together when He wills.” A never proved power - as far as science knows, this has never happened since the first living beings populated the Earth (the Big Flood may be an exception, but neither science nor Islam has been able to find traces from such a universal flood some thousands years ago). May be Allah has never willed? Or is the reason something else?
103 42/30b: “Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because of things your hands have wrought - - -”. Please compare this to some of the other verses quoted in this chapter and other places (f.x. 42/31 below) and tell us: Is there honesty in this kind of Muslim argumentation? Because the Quran clearly tells many places that Allah decides everything, and nothing can change his predestinations. You f.x. cannot change your destiny by staying away from battle.
Or is the main thing to cling to what they want to believe? - and rather not find out if they are wrong until in the possible next world, when it may be too late not to end up in some real religion’s Hell?
(At least 10 contradictions in the Quran.)
#104 42/30d: (A42/35 - English 2008 edition 42/34): "Since this latter (man’s life in the hereafter*) is but an organic continuation of the earthly life - - -". A very informative sentence - and a universe from the Bible's Paradise, where you become "like the angels in heaven" (f.x. Matt. 22/30). Did anyone claim Yahweh and Allah are the same god? - even their Paradises are incomparable and incompatible. And did anyone claim the basic elements in the religions of all prophets, included Muhammad, are identical? It is so wrong that "wrong" is not even the correct word.
One more of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - if they had been, their Paradises had been one and the same.
105 42/30e: "- - - He (Allah*) grants forgiveness". Only 2 can forgive; the victim and a god. Is Allah a god - if he exists?
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.
p>106 42/31b: "Nor can ye (humans*) frustrate (aught) - - -". See this sentence together with "- - - it is because of the things your hands wrought - - -" in 42/30 above.
strong>In clear words: "The bad things you do, is your own fault - but you cannot change anything Allah has predestined". And Allah as you know from the Quran has predestined every detail you say and do throughout your life.
Do you see the irony? Do you see the contradiction? Do you see the hopeless logic? And do you see the insult, slander, and heresy in blaming such a piece of literature on a god?
107 42/31c: "- - - nor have ye (people*), besides Allah, anyone to protect or to help". Contradicted: Once more we are back to beings like Yahweh - both the Bible and the Quran claims he exists (though the Quran wrongly mixes him with Allah), and both claim he is helpful and a protector. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. 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.
#108 42/32b: “And among his Signs are the ships, smooth-running through the ocean - - -”. Neither Allah nor Muhammad ever built a ship - and if Islam says that Allah taught man to build ships, they will have to prove it. The same if what the point here is that the wind moves the ships. The Quran never has proved that Allah makes the wind - any Pagan priest may utter the same invalid words, that his god(s) make(s) it. Words are that cheap.
109 42/33b: “If it be His (Allah’s) Will, He can still the Wind - - -”. That we can, too - - - as long as we do not have to prove it.
110 42/33c: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book where so much is wrong like in the Quran, words of this kind cannot be taken at face value without additional proofs.
111 42/33d: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
112 42/33f: "- - - patiently persevere - - -". #####An expression and a word no non-Muslim should never forget Islam stresses and stresses: Persevere, and in the end your enemy grows tired and must retreat or is suppressed. Islam has won too many times because of this correct fact.
113 42/34a: "Or He (Allah*) can cause them to perish - - -". Similar often claimed, never proved. (That is to say: Muslims can cause people to perish.)
114 42/34b: "- - - (evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
115 42/34c: "- - - much doth He (Allah*) forgive". This only may be - may be - true if he exists and is a god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
116 42/35a: "- - - (for*) those who dispute about Our (Allah's*) Signs - - - there is no way to escape (punishment/Hell*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that those who follow Yahweh - and his roads at many and serious points are very different from the Quran's (Allah's?) - will not be lost, but end in Paradise. 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.
###Also the big differences between the Bible's and the Quran's hells are more than big and fundamental enough to prove that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - if they had been, also their hells had been more or less identical.
Another point: As there exists not one sign provably for Allah, there are no such signs to dispute.
117 42/36a: "- - - that which is with Allah is better and more lasting - - -". Yes, if the Quran is from a god - not f.x. from a human or from dark forces - and if it is telling the complete truth and only the truth. Which it does not.
118 42/36c: "- - - put their (Muslims'*) Trust in their Lord (Allah*)". No sane and intelligent person puts his values - or his life - into something without thinking over and evaluating the risk. But Muhammad demanded everybody to risk both their lives and their possible next life just on his words and on blind belief - normally the most sure way to be cheated, especially if the tempter is an unreliable person, believing in the use of dishonesty, deceit and even broken words/promises/oaths, and liking respect, power, and riches for more power - and women.
119 42/37a: "- - - the greater crimes - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
120 42/37b: "- - - shameful deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
#121 42/38b: "- - - regular prayers - - -". This demand for regular prayers - 5 times a day - was so essential for Allah (he even wanted more often according to Hadiths) that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. For Yahweh such formalism was so totally without any interest, that no similar rule - not even the idea - at all is mentioned in the entire Bible: Pray when there is a reason or a need or a wish. One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. Also see 23/9b above.
122 42/40b: (A41 – in 2008 edition A40): “The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree) - - -.” The literal meaning of the Arab words are “- - - is (or “may be”) an evil like it”. And the “modernized” 2008 edition of “The Message of the Quran” has exactly the same Arab words interpreted like this for the West and others: “But (remember that an attempt at) requiting evil may, too, become an evil - - -.” This sounds much better (and is closer to Jesus' moral code). But it is not honest translation. How often is dishonest translations used by Islam/Muslim scholars/Muslims?
123 42/40c: "- - - (Allah) loweth not those who do wrong". This looks nice - until you try to find out what is wrong and what is not, according to Muhammad's moral and ethical codes. To suppress victims, rape female captives, steal/rob, extort, kill was right, if you could claim you do it in the name of Allah, to lie and cheat and break your oaths could be right. To refuse to go on raids or wars for the god/Muhammad, was seriously wrong. Etc. There are some large differences between the moral code in the Quran, and normal moral codes.
124 42/40e: "- - - (Allah) loweth not those who do wrong". But Yahweh loves every soul. Yahweh and Allah the same god? No chance.
125 42/40f: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
126 42/41a: "But indeed if any do help and defend themselves after a wrong is (done) to them (= they take revenge for the wrong*), against such there is no cause of blame". Compare this to f.x. "turn the other cheek" (f.x. Matt. 5/39) or "love your enemies" (f.x. Matt. 5/44). One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same moral league - or line of prophets (this even if Muhammad had been a real prophet - see f.x. 9/88b above). Not even in the same religion.
127 42/41c: "- - - wrong - - -". See 42/40d above.
128 42/42a: "The blame is only upon those who oppress men with wrongdoing and insolently transgress beyond bounds - - -". But this is just what Muslims are ordered to do against non-Muslim, and what is "lawful and good" in the Islamic war laws - nominally only for jihads, but in reality practically everything is called jihad. And honestly: WHAT KIND OF GOOD AND BENEVOLENT GOD IS IT WHO TELLS THAT IF YOU DO HORRIBLE THINGS OR DESTROYS THE LIVES AND FUTURE OF FELLOW HUMANS IN HIS NAME, IT IS "LAWFUL AND GOOD"? (8/69). A horrible difference between the Quran and NT: "Behave against others like you want others to behave against you" (Matt. 7/12). The same god? Nyet! - which is a good and strong English word meaning NO with 3 lines under it. And a word we use because even the rich English language does not have a strong enough NO for this. And Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets (for Muhammad also see 9/88b above) or the same religion? The same answer.
129 42/42b: "- - - wrongdoing - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
130 42/42c: "- - - right and justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral, ethical, and judicial codes. There also is a big gap between what is "right and justice" for Muslims and for non-Muslims - the Quran is strong in apartheid and in some ways related to Nazism. And to call Islam "the religion of peace" is an al-Taqiyya - a lawful lie - which succeeds only because few non-Muslims know the surahs from Medina.
A small fact: During the 10 years in Medina, Muhammad made 82 "armed incidents", nearly all of them aggression from Muhammad in order to steal/rob and to take prisoners for extortion, rape, and slavery (- - - enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good (8/69*)- - -"). This means one "incident" every 6 weeks through 10 years! Islam "the Religion of Peace"? Islam the Religion of Truth"? - or of right and justice and honesty?
131 42/43d: "- - - truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 2/2b and 13/1g above.
132 42/44a: "For any whom Allah leaves astray - - -". Allah leaves astray whom he wants. Remember in this connection that he according to the Quran predestines absolutely everything, and according to his unchangeable Plan. F.x. he according to Hadiths predestine whether you are to end in Hell or Heaven already 5 months before you are born - and nothing you do can change that decision. You simply are left astray before you are born.
133 42/44d: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
134 42/44-45: Pep-talk to Muhammad's followers - telling how badly non-Muslims will fare. Your own success is best, but others' bad luck is not too bad, too. A psychologically good claim with effect on followers' spirit.
135 42/45d: "Truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See f.x. 42/33b above.
##########136 42/45e: (A42/47 - English 2008 edition A4246): "Thus the above sentence implies that every kind of evildoing (zulm), ####and particularly the oppression of others, results in a spiritual injury to, and ultimately the self-destruction of, its perpetrators and/or their followers". ######Read the Quran's moral code, laws, and rules concerning points of view and treatment of non-Muslims - includes suppression and oppression of them. Also compare this to the one basic moral code: "Do onto others like you want others do onto you" - and weep. This sentence tells a lot about why many Muslim societies are like they are - and may be about why Islam and Muslims are widely disliked. (As for the latter also Islam's/Muslims' haughtiness and Islam's aggressive ideology count a lot.)
What does this tell about Islam and about its Muslims?
137 42/45g: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
138 42/46b: "- - - for any whom Allah leaves to stray - - -". Allah leaves to stray whom he wants - some already from before they are born. Yahweh according to NT tries to find all his "sheep". Same god? No.
139 42/46c: "- - - for any whom Allah leaves to stray, there is no way (to the Goal)". According to NT there is ALWAYS a way, as long as there is honest regret. The same god? No way!
140 42/47b: "Because of (the ordainment of) Allah". One more of the very many never proved claims in the Quran. Exactly not one single central thing concerning his claimed god, his claimed connection to a god, or about his new religion, was Muhammad able to prove - it all just are loose words and loose claims from a man of a doubtful moral standard.
141 42/47c: "- - - (- - - your sins)". Beware that sins in the Quran frequently is not the same kind of sins as you find in peaceful religions - also this is a word which is defined and used in accordance with the Quran's partly immoral moral and ethical codes.
142 42/48b: “Thy (Muhammad’s) duty is but to convey (the Message (the Quran# - or the peaceful parts that existed in 614 – 618 AD*))”. From some years later on, Islam found some of their duties to be more brutal enforcers, so among other verses this one and a lot more were contradicted and abrogated. This verse is contradicted and often “killed” by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).
143 42/48d: "And truly - - -". Similar to f.x. 42/33c above. Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim.
144 42/48e: "- - - a Mercy from (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above.
145 42/48f: "- - - on account of the deeds which his (a person*) have sent forth - - -". But how is it possible to reward or punish a person for his deeds, if the Quran tells the truth when it strongly states that Allah predestines everything you do - it then is Allah who causes what happens, not the human! (Muslims try to explain this problem away, f.x. by claiming a "limited free will for man". But even limited free will is impossible to combine with total predestination, like the Quran many places states. In the immaterial spheres of life there are things impossible even for omnipotent gods).
146 42/49a: "To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Just this is claimed many places in the Quran - and not proved one single time. It is one of the many cheap claims any religion can use free of charge for their god(s) - it is that cheap as long as you can evade all requests for proofs.
147 42/49d: "He (Allah*) creates what He wills - - -". Perhaps there was a reason why Yahweh wanted a son, and then he "creates what He wills" = Jesus. The argument used in the Quran at least one place that he could have no son because he had no consort, is thus invalid (and perhaps wrong - remember the very old information about an "Amat").
148 42/49f: "(Allah creates*) - - - according to His Will (and Plan) - - -". Allah decides and plans - the predestination once more.
149 42/50a: "- - - He (Allah*) leaves barren whom He will - - -". Allah decides and predestines everything in his unfathomable wisdom.
150 42/50b: “- - - He (Allah*) is full of knowledge - - - “. Hardly. See 40/75 and 41/12a-f.
151 42/50c: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
152 42/50d: "- - - He (Allah*) is full of - - - power". He in case never, not one single time in 1400 years, clearly has proved his claimed power.
#####153 42/50e: (A42/52 - English 2008 edition A42/51): "The purport of this passage is a re-affirmation of the fact that whatever happens to man is an outcome of Allah's unfathomable will - - -". The total predestination confirmed. Where then is man's claimed free will? - with total predestination it does not exist. x - x = 0.
154 42/51a: "It is not fitting for a man that Allah should speak to him (directly*)". Why not? A superior god is above nonsense like social standing in a society. And for the man it would be the pinnacle of honor.
155 42/51c: "- - - by inspiration - - -". Muhammad many places in the Quran works to legitimize his own claimed main canal for contact with his claimed god. Inspiration is never mentioned in such connections in the Bible - the Bible even has contradicted this claim in 4. Mos. 12/6-8, saying Yahweh only used direct contact, visions, or dreams. (He also sometimes sent angels, but that is direct contact with Heaven). Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. 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.
156 42/51d: "- - - Allah is Most High - - -". For one thing this depends on that Allah exists and is a god, and for the other this is contradicted by the Bible, which says that Yahweh is the most high. 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.
157 42/51e: "- - - (Allah is*) Most Wise". Wrong if he made the Quran - too many mistaken facts and other errors.
158 42/52a: "And thus have We (Allah*) - - - sent inspiration (the Quran*) - - -". No god ever was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran.
159 42/52b: "And thus have We (Allah*) - - - sent inspiration to thee (Muhammad*) - - -". "Inspiration" is a very practical way to receive messages: What is really messages, what is wishful thinking, and what is own planning? - impossible for others to say. But even Muslim scholars say there are verses in the Quran which do not fit in a holy book and/or is not worthy of a god - f.x. surah 111.
Also: The word "inspiration" is never used in such connections in the Bible. There only are mentioned direct contact (included by angels*), visions, and dreams.
160 42/52d: "- - - Revelation - - -". But was he Quran a revelation? - and in case from whom, as a god was impossible with so much wrong in the book?
161 42/52f: "- - - We (Allah*) has made the (Quran) a Light - - -". No god was ever involved in a book so full of errors, contradictions, etc. like the Quran.
162 42/52g: "- - - We (Allah*) has made the (Quran) a Light - - -". Please read the Quran, and especially the some 22 - 24 surahs from Medina, which according to the Islamic rules for abrogation (making verses in the Quran invalid) are the dominant ones, as they are the youngest ones, and see how much light you find, especially if you omit the glorifying words, and instead read the demands, introduced, real moral code, etc. - the realities and not the propaganda. Whenever there is a distance between words and reality, we always believe the reality.
163 42/52h: “- - - We (Allah*) have made the (Quran) a Light - - -”. A book with may be 3ooo mistakes, contradictions, invalid statements, “signs”, “proofs”, invalid logic, etc. is not much of a light.
164 42/52i: "- - - wherewith (the Quran*) We (Allah*) guide - - -". There is not much guidance in a book as full of errors, etc. like the Quran - no god would use it for a guidebook. Perhaps dark forces would do so, but we think there are too many mistakes, etc. even for a devil - he had to know he would be found out sooner or later and loose credence. But maybe if the god permitted only such a miserable book, so that it should be possible for humans to see through the trap?
165 42/52m: "- - - verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 2/2b above.
166 42/52n: “- - - and verily thou (Muhammad*) dost guide (men) to the Straight Way - - -“. It is not possible to guide anyone straight from a book this crooked.
167 42/53a: "- - - (to Allah*) belongs whatever is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and whatever is on earth". This claim you find many places in the Quran - but never a proof. Claims are cheap.
168 42/53d: "Behold (how) all affairs tend towards Allah". We at least are unable to see that - not unless we block our knowledge and our brain, and also block the facts told in the Quran, and only judges from the glorifying words, the loose words and claims and the as loose and invalid "signs" and "proofs".
6676 + 168 = 6844 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".
