1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 48

 

SURAH 48: AL-FATH (The Victory)

(Medina, 628 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 48/1a: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. In a book where so much is wrong like in the Quran, some words, included "verily", cannot be taken at face value unless there are proofs.

When used in the Quran words like "true", "truth", "truly", "sure" "surety", "surely", "verity", "verily", etc. are claims, not proved facts. Also see 2/2b + 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones - and as for contradictions to the Bible also 40/20b. Also the latter half of the comments to 41/39a is very relevant. These and similar words cannot be taken at face value unless they are proved.

003 48/1b: "Verily We (Allah*) have granted thee (Muhammad*) a manifest Victory". This may refer to the truce in Hudaybiyah. But was it granted by Allah or by after all a demonstration of strength?

004 48/2a: "- - - Allah may forgive - - -". Allah cannot forgive unless he for one thing exists and for another in addition is a god, none of which is proved - there only are the claims of a not too reliable and at least partly immoral man who on top of all needed a platform of power.

As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.

######005 48/2b: "- - - Allah may forgive thee (Muhammad) thy faults of the past ####and those to follow". A dogma in Islam is that Muhammad was forgiven all his sins during his life, also the ones he at each point of time had not yet committed. Well, why then not rape a woman or two or murder some opponents (like he did)?

This point reveals something dark about both Muhammad and - as Islam accepts that this is ok moral - also about Islam.

In addition: If the old books are reliable on this point, this is one of the proofs for that Jesus and Muhammad were not like. According to the books Jesus was without sins, whereas Muhammad had to be forgiven his - often horrible - sins.

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.

006 48/2d: "- - - (Allah will*) guide - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107b+c above.

007 48/2e: "- - - (Allah will*) guide thee (Muhammad*) - - -". If Allah guided Muhammad, Allah for one thing is not omniscient - too many mistakes, etc. in his guidebook. For another he was not clairvoyant, which he should be if he was like described in the Quran - he had to abrogate many points of his teaching, and also changed it radically from rather peaceful to one of war, hate and central elements of dishonesty around and after 622 - 624 AD. For a third he was no good and benevolent god - much of what Muhammad did, was from inhuman to real horror. And finally: Allah in case is a god of terror and war. And not least: He did not foresee Muhammad's problems, so that Muhammad could avoid them - he had to sort out everything afterwards.

008 48/2f: "- - - the Straight Way - - -". The claimed road to Allah and his Paradise - see 10/9f above. Is it a symptom that Muhammad spoke about the straight = easy - way, whereas Jesus spoke about the narrow = difficult - road? If one of them was a populist, it was not Jesus.

009 48/3a: "- - - that Allah might help you (Muhammad*) with powerful help". There have been claims about help which has been given from Allah, but in 1400 years not one single case has been documented. (The best proof for this, is that Islam had told about it loudly and often if it had ever happened).

010 48/3b: "- - - that Allah might help you (Muhammad*) with powerful help". Allah can help nobody unless he exists and is something supernatural - white or black.

011 48/4d: "- - - to Allah belong the Forces of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". There are more than one god for which this is claimed - many more - and Allah has never even proved his existence, not to mention his power.

018 48/4e: "- - - heavens - - -". This refers to the 7 material heavens the Quran talks about. But there are no 7 heavens.

012 48/4f: “- - - Allah is Full of Knowledge and Wisdom - - -”. Not if he made the Quran. See 13/1g and 40/75.

013 48/5a: "- - - He (Allah*) may admit men and women who believe, to Gardens - - -". Only if he exists and is a god, none of which Muhammad was able to prove.

014 48/5d: "- - - Gardens beneath which rivers flow - - -". According to Hadiths there are 4 rivers in Paradise - in addition to the rivers of milk, of honey, and of wine mentioned in the Quran - f.x verse 47/15 - (but not in the Bible). Of them 2 continue on Earth according to Hadiths: The Nile and the Euphrates. You are free to believe it.

015 48/5e: "- - - to dwell therein (Paradise*) for aye - - -". There is one verse in the Quran which may mean it is not quite forever. See 11/108c above.

016 48/5f: "- - - the highest achievement (for man) - - -". If Allah exists. If he in addition is a god. If the Quran in addition to this has told the full truth and only the truth. If not all this, or if he belongs to the dark forces, this definitely is wrong.

###017 48/6b: "- - - He (Allah*) may punish (non-Muslims*) - - - who imagine an evil opinion about Allah". Whether the opinion is true or not, is not a question - if they even imagine a bad opinion about Allah, that is punishable. A fact to be remembered: If you think or express something negative about Allah, you can be punished. Also if you are not a Muslim yourself.

In practical life Muslims often are not too quick to punish for not being too strong in the belief in Allah - though there are wide areas where you should be careful. But be more careful with saying negative things about Muhammad, even very true things. The reason is that all Islam is built only on the words of Muhammad, and the historical, real Muhammad was very far from the glorious semi-saint Islam wants him to look like. If something is wrong with Muhammad or his Quran - and a lot is - all Islam is wrong. Therefore no negative information can be accepted - true or not true. If Muhammad is showed in his real being, the Quran, and thus Islam is proved invalid and wrong (the same if there are proved mistakes in the Quran - which there are plenty of, but which Muslims refuse to see). And it is better to believe strongly in the religion your fathers and surroundings claim is the correct one - "taqlid" - than to face the fact that your life may be built on a false religion. This no matter what price you may have to pay if there is a next life and a real god, but not the ones of your and your fathers' fiction.

018 48/6c: "- - - an evil opinion of Allah". What is an evil opinion if he does not exist? - or if he exists, but is such a feeble being that he is unable to prove neither his power nor his existence? Not to mention if he belongs to the dark forces.

019 48/6d: "- - - a round of Evil". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and unethical ethical codes.

020 48/6e: "- - - the Wrath of Allah - - -". - has never been proved. Numbers of claims, but never a proof.

021 48/6f: "- - - He (Allah*) has cursed them and got Hell ready for them (non-Muslims*)". This he cannot do unless he exist and in addition is either a god or a devil.

###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.

022 48/6g: "- - - He (Allah*) has - - - got Hell ready for them (non-Muslims*)". Is this another indication for that Allah is the real top boss for Hell, like many Muslim scholars believe? (The logic is that if Allah is omnipotent, Iblis/the Devil cannot run Hell without Allah's permission). Some good and benevolent god in case.

023 48/7a: "For to Allah belong the Forces of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that it belong to Yahweh, not to Allah. 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.

024 48/7b: "- - - Allah is Exalted in Power - - -". He has in case never proved it.

025 48/7c: “- - - (Allah is*) Full of Wisdom - - -”. See 13/1g and 40/75 above.

026 48/8a: “We (Allah*) have truly sent thee (Muhammad*) as a witness - - -”. Is this reliable? - in a book with this much mistakes, invalid statements, “signs” and “proofs”? There is only one possible answer to that: A “witness” bringing so much wrong information and wrong fact, is not sent from an omniscient god. And one may add: A “witness” bringing so much injustice, hate and misery to the world, is not sent by a good and benevolent god. If Muhammad at all was sent, on may speculate about by whom. Personally we hardly believe he was sent by even a devil, though the parts of the religion as preached in the Quran fits any devil well. But not even a devil would make a "holy" book with so many mistakes and errors – he would be found out sooner or later.

###But may be a devil knew that mistakes do not matter very much – may be he knew that religiously blind persons are unable to see even the most obvious mistaken facts, because they do not want to see them? Or maybe that was the condition on which the god permitted the book - so that man should have a fair chance to see the trap and avoid Hell?

027 48/8b: "- - - truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 2/2b above.

When used in the Quran words like "true", "truth", "truly", "sure" "surety", "surely", "verity", "verily", etc. are claims, not proved facts. Also see 2/2b, 67/9c - a strong one - and as for contradictions to the Bible also 40/20b. Also the latter half of the comments to 41/39a is very relevant. These and similar words cannot be taken at face value unless they are proved.

028 48/8c: “- - - Glad Tidings - - -.” Wrong. Islam is no glad tiding, except for the ones not suppressed – and really glad only for the ones looking for booty and slaves and stolen riches, and not least for the ones near the top of the pyramid who got – and get – a lot of power in addition. It often is like that in war religions, especially when made to fit a strong and charismatic leader (and his successors), though many war religions have not been as hypocritical as Islam in trying to make its members and others believe it is good and just and humane and benevolent. And well, it may have been glad tidings for the minor percentage of people who need a religion to lean on – at least for the possible ones where the old pagan religion was not strong enough.

Of the war religion the world has seen, only Islam remains today - at least among the big ones still preaching war, and where war still is a basic element in the "holy" book.

029 48/8d: "- - - a Warner - - -". But this was in 628, and Muhammad was not only a warner anymore. He also had started as an enforcer. "Let there be no compulsion in religion" became obsolete.

030 48/9a: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad) - - -". Muhammad's standard, but never proved mantra to glue himself to his god and thus to his platform of power.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

031 48/10a: "Verily - - -!. It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 48/1 above.

When used in the Quran words like "true", "truth", "truly", "sure" "surety", "surely", "verity", "verily", etc. are claims, not proved facts. Also see 2/2b + 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones - and as for contradictions to the Bible also 40/20b. Also the latter half of the comments to 41/39a is very relevant. These and similar words cannot be taken at face value unless they are proved.

#####032 48/10b: A STRONG ONE FOR MUHAMMAD: "Verily those who plight their fealty to thee (Muhammad*) do no less than plight their fealty to Allah - - -". No comment necessary - on Earth Muhammad is the stand in for Allah: Power to Muhammad!

#####033 48/10d: ANOTHER STRONG ONE FOR MUHAMMAD: "- - - then anyone who violates his oath (to Muhammad - see 48/10b above*), do so to the harm of his own soul, and anyone who fulfils what he has covenanted with Allah (in reality with Muhammad*) - Allah will soon grant him a great Reward (free of charge for Muhammad*)". No comment should be necessary here, except; "no payment does Muhammad ask for his preaching" - but obedience and service also is payment.

034 48/11b: "The desert Arabs who lagged behind - - -". Desert Arabs did not exist until after the camel was domesticated a few thousand years ago (and in addition it took centuries and more before the use of camels spread from where it was first domesticated in south Arabia (perhaps in Oman), and thus a time anomaly for claimed Muslims reading claimed copies of the claimed "Mother Book" - similar to the Quran - before that.

There also is another fact here. Even if the camel was domesticated (likely) in the south of the Arab peninsula (Oman?), it took a thousand years or more before it spread to the rest of Arabia. And further it did not spread until the Assyrians started trade on Arabia, which means sometime around the reign of King David or King Solomon or perhaps a little later. This among other things means that f.x. Abraham, who lived 800-1ooo years earlier in and around Canaan (now roughly Israel) and in northern Sinai (if he is not a made up person), did not have camels. This again means that the trip to Mecca and the leaving of Hagar and Ishmael there, and Abraham's claimed several trips to Mecca later - f.x. to build the big Kabah, (which no shepherd (which was Abraham's profession) had the technology to build) - was impossible.

035 48/11c: "- - - do thou (Muhammad*) ask forgiveness (from Allah*) for us". Allah can forgive no-one unless he exists and is a god.

As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.

036 48/11e: "Who then has any power at all (to intervene) on your (half-hearted Muslims*) behalf with Allah - - -". The desert Arabs - the Bedouins - originally were rather lukewarm to Muhammad and his religion, and Muhammad was frustrated about it. But where is the logic when he normally tells that Allah decides everything and nobody can influence Allah's will and decisions or Plan, whereas his implicit threat here seems to be that if the desert Arabs will not obey him - the two points you find he comments other places in the Quran, are that they are reluctant to take part in his raids and reluctant to pay tax - he will not intervene on their behalf with Allah (to make Allah change his Plan to benefit them). But then Muhammad is not always logical when other arguments works better. See f.x. his claims that Allah decides and predestines everything, but all the same man has free will. It is so impossible to combine these two, that even Islam has given in to explain it. The essential things seem not to be that things or claims can be true, but that they work - that naive or brainwashed or blindly believing followers believe what is claimed. Predestination and free will for man is not possible even for gods to combine. The same goes for predestination and no intervention possible but all the same intervention by Muhammad possible, like here is indicated.

And a small PS: What is the value of prayers or claimed forgiving in Islam, if everything is predestined long time before by Allah, and according to his Plan which "nobody and nothing can change"? - if nothing can change it, then also prayers can change nothing in the Plan, and prayers are to no avail.

037 48/11f: "But Allah is well acquainted with all that ye (people*) do". The old warning: Be obedient and do not try to cheat. But also see 2/233h above.

038 48/12d: "- - - (in wickedness) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and partly unethical code of ethics. You also must remember that Islam has no moral or ethical philosophy - everything is a question of what said and did Muhammad in his pre-medieval time?

039 48/13a: "And if any believe not in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), We (Allah*) have prepared, for those who reject Allah (in praxis here on Earth those who disobey Muhammad*), a Blazing Fire!" A clear message from Muhammad: Obey me or end in Hell. Is it possible for any dictator to find a stronger "whip"?

###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.

040 48/13b: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard, but never proved, mantra to glue himself to his platform of power, his god.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than even women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

041 48/14a: "To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". An often repeated, but never proved claim in the Quran - like all other central religious claims in the book.

042 48/14d: "He (Allah*) forgives whom He wills - - -". Only 2 can forgive: The victim and a god. Is Allah a god - - - if he exists? Often claimed, never proved, often "explained" away.

As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.

043 48/14f: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". See 47/14d+e above.

044 48/14g: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code. The immoral and/or unjust parts of sharia. The rules for behavior in war. The treatment of females - children and adults, captives or free ones. Read them and see if you agree. When there are divergences or worse between reality and nice words, we at least always believe in the realities.

##045 48/15b: “Those who lagged behind (did not take active part in the battle or fight*) (will say), when ye (the “real” warriors*) (are free to) march and take booty (in war) - - -”. The stealing and robbing and taking of slaves and raping of girls and women, are for the active warriors only - a huge incentive for poor, uneducated ruffians. Is it partly the same effect we see in Darfur and saw f.x. in Bangladesh and East Timor? - easy to find warriors, and most inhuman behavior. May such things happen other places if Islam grows strong enough and fanatics - or the "right" kind of mullahs or imams - take over the leadership? There are tendencies in London, and many of the 9/11 terrorists came from Hamburg - not to mention the unrest in many cities in France in 2006, and for that case in some a little liberal countries in (North) Africa where fanatics want to take over power (one exception may - just may - be Turkey, which has been secular since Ataturk in the 1920s. There may be a chance. Strangely enough also Bangladesh and Malaysia have a small chance to become human democracies - and perhaps Jordan and a couple of the emirates benevolent dictatorships. But the rest of all the Muslim world either is in the grip of fanatics or is drifting that way at present - towards what some call Muslim radicalism, others Muslim conservatism - likely the most correct expression - and even others Islamism, but which all just are different names for fanatics). (This was written before the unrest in Muslim countries from 2011 on).

What had the world looked like today if the Muslim world had not petrified into stony fundamentalism and stagnated? - if the Muslim world who had developed the industrial revolution and superior weapons and ways of fighting, instead of the West? You can bet against very heavy odds that the world now had been ruled by imams, and without any realistic chance of ever becoming a free world.

##046 48/15c: (A48/14): “- - - when ye (Muslims*) (are free to) march and take plunder (in war) - - -.” Or: “As soon as you (O Muslims!) are about to set forth on a war that promises booty - - -.” For some strange (?) reasons in none of our different translations are used the literal meaning of the Arab text (translated from Swedish): “- - - leave on a raid to take plunder - - -.” May be sometimes the varieties in the understanding of the Quranic texts are because one does not want what really is said in the book. According to Islamic information or disinformation all Muhammad’s some 80 raids (we have the names of some 60 of the raids) were in self defense, and then it may as well be wise for “the Religion of Peace” to “mend” the text a little and make it more tasteful and "correct"? - instead of translating the Quran correctly and have to admit that Muhammad made "raids to take plunder" - not very holy jihads.

#####"The Religion of Peace"??? #####"The Religion of Honesty"??? - #########remember that stealing and not only lying, is dishonesty.

##047 48/15d: (A48/14): “- - - when ye (Muslims*) (are free to) march and take plunder (in war) - - -.” Or: “As soon as you (O Muslims!) are about to set forth on a war that promises booty - - -.” Try to find things like this in NT! One more at least 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of anything of any consequence.

##048 48/16b: “Say (Muhammad*) to the desert Arabs (but most of the Quran is valid for all people and all times according to Islam*) who lagged behind: ‘Ye shall be summoned (to fight) against a people given to vehement war: then shall ye fight, or they shall submit. Then if ye show obedience (fight*), Allah will grant you a goodly reward (rich spoils taken/stolen in holy(?) war and Paradise*) - - -”. A huge carrot to make fighting attractive - but what peaceful religion goes far out to make war attractive?

049 48/16c: "- - - the desert Arabs who lagged behind - - -". In the beginning the Bedouins were not too interested in Muhammad's new religion. This changed considerably after Muhammad started his raids for riches and captives/slaves.

050 48/16d: "- - - the desert Arabs - - -". Desert Arabs did not exist until after the camel was domesticated a few thousand (4ooo - 5ooo? - one do not know exactly) years ago, perhaps in what now is Oman. And real desert lives - desert Arabs - could not exist until use of the camel became more widespread around 1ooo-900 BC = around the time of King Solomon (or even later in the north), and thus a time anomaly for claimed Muslims reading claimed copies of the claimed "Mother Book" - similar to the Quran - before that. (In this case before Muhammad started his raids for riches in earnest.)

Added 5. Apr. 2013 AD: Quoted from the Scandinavian newspaper Aftenposten published today, where professor emeritus (in physics) Redvald Skullerud says: "(It is claimed that Abraham*) used camels for transport some 1200 years before the camel was introduced as a transport animal in the area when the Assyrians started trade with South Arabia". (Abraham lived - if he is not made up - around 2ooo-1800 BC.) As you see it is an accepted scientific fact that even though the dromedary was domesticated and somewhat used in South Arabia, it was not introduced further north until a long time - 1ooo+ years - after Abraham, and then as a transport animal. To use it as a riding animal came even later. And without the camel, it would be impossible for Abraham to go back and forth time and again between Canaan and the dry desert valley where Mecca later came - crossing rough and forbidding big deserts. Abraham's claimed connection to Mecca is an impossibility. And: There could not be real desert Arabs f.x. in the Mecca region until around/after some 800 BC.

051 48/16e: "Ye (the desert Arabs*) shall be summoned (to fight) against a people given to vehement war: then ye shall fight , or they shall submit." Try to find things like this in NT! One more at least 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion or line of anything of any consequence.

###052 48/16f: "Then if ye (in this case desert Arabs reluctant to take part in raids*) show obedience, Allah will grant you a goodly reward (Paradise*) - - -". Obedience to whom? - here on Earth in reality to Muhammad, and for a reward costing Muhammad exactly nothing but some words free of charge. The dream position for a Hitler, a Stalin, a Mao, a Papa Doc, any dictator wanting absolute and total power and obedience. Religion disused is the ultimate platform of power.

053 48/16g: "- - - Allah will give ye (Bedouins*) a goodly reward (for going to war*)". The religion of peace?? Try to find things like this in NT! One more at least 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion or line of anything of any consequence.

###054 48/16h: “- - - but if ye (see first part of 48/16a above*) turn back (refuse to fight*) as ye did before, He (Allah*) will punish you with a grievous Penalty”. Very clear words from Muhammad and then Islam: Do battle or end in Hell. Some nice "Religion of Peace"! Try to find things like this in NT! One more at least 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion or line of anything of any consequence.

###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.

055 48/16i: "- - - He (Allah*) will punish you (Bedouins*) with a grievous Penalty (for not going on raids and to war*)". The good and benevolent god for "the religion of peace"?

056 48/16k: When you see the verse 48/16 as a whole, there is only this conclusion possible to draw: A man who says the Quran teaches a human and peaceful and friendly religion towards non-Muslims and some fractions of Muslims, either has not read the Quran, or is deceiving himself, or is lying - and knows he is lying.(But then lying "if necessary" to defend or promote the religion is no sin according to the rules for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth) in Islam - the only of the big religions with rules for ok. dishonesty). And any man believing him either has not read the Quran, or is deceiving himself or is naïve.

The same is the only conclusion possible after reading the whole Quran, and especially the surahs from Medina - which on top of all dominates over the more peaceful ones from Mecca according to Islam’s own rule abrogation, as the ones from Medina are younger.

###If a book about politics or any other subject than religion (actually for Muslims religion is politics), inciting so strongly to hate, (religious) apartheid, suppression (of women and of all outsiders), stealing/robbing, rape, murder and war, it had been prohibited in all civilized and most little civilized countries. (It was proposed to prohibit it in the Netherlands, but it will not be politically possible to do it because of Islam's power).

057 48/17a: "No blame is there on the blind, not blame is there on the lame, nor on one ill (if he joins not the war) - - -". Only the seriously handicapped were not to blame for not going to war when Muhammad wanted, and he wanted very often (it is said he was involved in 82 armed "episodes" - www.1000mistakes.com/jihad-holywar/index.php names 63 - all the last 10 years = the Medina period. 82 in 9-10 years (the raids did not start at once) = ca. 1 every six weeks, practically all of them Muslim aggression, and most of them raids to steal and take prisoners for slaves or ransom - facts Muslims never mention when they claim it was "holy wars").

058 48/17b: "No blame is there on the blind, nor is there blame on the lame, nor one ill (if he joins not the war) - - -". The underlying, but clear meaning: But there is blame on every fit man who does not want to go on raids/war. There is not an adult Muslim not knowing about points like this in the Quran. All the same they vehemently and with straight faces claim that Islam is "the Religion of Peace"(!!!)

No comment - and none necessary.

Except: Try to find things like this in NT! One more at least 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of anything of any consequence.

And except: Is there a reason why Islam and Muslims so seldom claim that "Islam is the Religion of Honesty"?

###059 48/17c: “- - - but he (the Muslim*) that obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad, and goes to war when called*) - (Allah) will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow - - -”. The great War God (Allah) and his representative and High Commander on Earth (Muhammad) will admit any dead warrior (aka robber, murderer, rapist, etc., “good and lawful” according to the Quran) to their warriors’ paradise with riches and women. Also see 48/16a and 48/16b above + 10/9f above.

060 48/17d: "- - - obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard, but never proved mantra for gluing himself to Allah, his platform of power.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

061 48/17g: "- - - (Allah) will admit him (the warrior*) to Gardens - - -". This Allah only can do if he exists and if he is a god, none of which is proved.

062 48/17h: "- - - Gardens beneath which rivers flow - - -". The Quran's and Islam's Paradise - see 10/9f above. Also: An Arabism - the one most frequently used in the Quran.

063 48/17i: “- - - and he (see first part of 48/17a-c above*) who turns back (from doing battle*) (Allah) will punish him with a grievous Penalty.” No more comments necessary. But try to find things like this in NT! One more at least 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of anything of any consequence.

064 48/17j: "- - - a grievous Penalty". See 3/77b above.

065 48/18a: "Allah's Good Pleasure was on the Believers when they swore Fealty to thee (Muhammad*) under the Tree (in Hudaybiyah outside Mecca in 628 AD*)." Swearing obedience to Muhammad for taking part in his raids and wars, was Good Pleasure to Allah - some "Religion of Peace"! And a very easy and good way for Muhammad to get ruthless warriors - - - and a most cheap way for him pay them.

066 48/18d: "- - - He (Allah*) rewarded them (Muhammad and his Muslims*) with a speedy Victory - - -". Allah or the military realities? "Gott mit uns" - "the god is with us" - is a frequently used propaganda slogan, but may be Napoleon was more honest and correct, when he said "the god is with the strongest armies".

067 48/20a "Allah has promised - - -". Beware that these claimed promises only are found in the Quran - a book full of errors, etc. and a few clear lies. And even if they should be true, Allah only can honor them if he exists and is a god. We may add that he never till now provably has honored even one promise.

068 48/20e: "- - - and He (Allah*) has restrained the hand of men from you - - -". Claims on par with 48/20a above.

069 48/20f: (A48/23 – in 2008 edition A22): “Allah has promised you many gains that ye shall acquire - - -.” Booty. A good and cheap way to get warriors. But does it here only talk about “gold and slaves and a few rapes” in this life (may be Khaybar in this case), or also riches in the next life like among others Ibn Abbas thought?

The price paid by the victims NEVER interested neither Allah, nor the Muslims, nor Muhammad. What does this tell about them? - and about Islam?

070 48/20i: "- - - He (Allah - the Quran*) may guide you - - -". A book that full of errors, etc. is no reliable guide for anything.

071 48/20j: "- - - a Straight Path - - -". The road to Allah and his Paradise - see 10/9f above.

072 48/21b: "- - - Allah has power over all things". Claims like this are very frequent in the Quran, but has never been clearly proved - not one single time in 1400 years. Not one single time - only words. (Before you protest: Try to find one single proof - proof - from Islam for the power of Allah. They launch claims "en masse" - and demands for and glorification of blind belief - but never one single real proof.)

073 48/22c: "- - - then would they (non-Muslims*) find neither protector nor helper". This will depend entirely on if their god - f.x. Yahweh - exists or not.

074 48/23a: "(Such has been) the practice (approved) of Allah in the past - - -". Impossible to know, as there is no trace of Allah older than 610 AD when Muhammad started his new religion. (Muslims claim that what Yahweh did, is what Allah did, as they as normal without any documentation claim those two were the same god, but this claim is wrong, as the basic ideas in their teachings fundamentally are too different). This in addition to the fact that there is no trace from a god like Allah, a book like the Quran, or a religion like Islam older than 610 AD when Muhammad started his mission.

What is ever so sure, though, is that the practice for thieving/robbing, rape, suppression, blood, war + dishonesty was not the practice neither of the Jewish prophets from Yahweh nor of Jesus. One of the strong proofs for that f.x. Jesus was in a religion totally different from Muhammad's.

075 48/23b: "(Such has been) the practice (approved) of Allah in the past - - -". Even if Muhammad had been right and Yahweh and Allah had been the same god (see f.x. 29/46ec and 48/23a above), this claim had been wrong. For a period - mainly from Moses and for some centuries afterwards Yahweh according to the Bible was a bit aggressive in order to establish and secure a national country for the Jews. That finished - and perhaps because of the Pax Romani making it possible for a peaceful religion to take hold - he sent (according to the Bible) Jesus and his mild new covenant of love and peace.

076 48/23c: "- - - no change wilt thou (a person*) find in the practice (approved) of Allah." Similar to 48/23a above.

077 48/24a: "And it is He (Allah*) Who has restrained their hands from you and your hands from them in the midst of Makkah - - -". This may refer to an episode which according to traditions took place during the episode of Hudaybiyah (Feb. 628 AD) - actually outside Mecca: A group of a few dozen men from Mecca is said to have attacked the Muslims. But as they by far were outnumbered by the Muslims, they were quickly and without too much bloodshed overpowered and taken prisoners.

078 48/24c: "- - - after He (Allah*) gave you (Muhammad*) victory over them". See 48/24a above. We may add that it does not take much of a god to make a couple of thousands partly armed warriors overpower somewhere between 30 and 80 opponents.

079 48/24d: "And Allah sees well all that ye (people*) do". The carrot and the stick: Allah sees all good deeds and rewards them. But Allah also sees all bad deeds and punishes them, so do not try to cheat. Also see 2/233h above - if he sees everything, why then does he have to test even his followers?

080 48/24-26: "And it is He (Allah*) Who has restrained their (Meccans'*) hands from you and your (Muslims'*) hands from them in the midst of Makkah (Mecca*) - - -". Mecca gave in to Muhammad and his overwhelming forces without fighting in 630 AD. Muhammad chose to be mild and murdered just a few more or less personal enemies, but not much more - a choice which proved to be wise. But as mentioned in 48/24a above it is likely just this sentence refers to an episode in February 628 AD outside Mecca.

081 48/25b: "- - - Revelation - - -". Is the Quran a revelation? - and in case from whom, as no god ever was involved in a book of that quality?

082 48/25d: "- - - the Sacred Mosque - - -". Kabah in Mecca. That it is sacred is a never proved claim.

083 48/25f: "- - - Allah would (in case*) have allowed you (Muhammad*) to force your way - - -". The plain military reality was that Muhammad was not strong enough to force his way into Mecca this time - at least not without huge losses.

084 48/25g: "- - - He (Allah*) may admit His Mercy to whom He will". Yahweh admits anyone who wants and qualifies to his mercy, if the Bible tells the truth. The same god?

085 48/25i: "If they (the few Muslims and all the non-Muslims inside Mecca*) had been apart, We (Allah*) should certainly have punished the Unbelievers among them with a grievous Punishment". Boasting and pep-talk from Muhammad - for a claimed omnipotent god it had been no problem at all to punish whom he wanted. In reality and explaining away for not attacking. (But it had not been wise to attack there and then - Mecca was powerful and strong and Muhammad after all had just a limited number of not fully armed warriors.)

086 48/26b: "- - - ignorance - - -". Parallel comment to "knowledge" - see 26/83a above. Islam even today officially names all time before the introduction of Islam "the Time of Ignorance" - people did not know Islam, and all other knowledge was and partly is of little interest to the religion, its people, and leaders.

087 48/26c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A version of Muhammad's standard, but never proved mantra to glue himself to his platform of power; his god - - -.

088 48/26f: “And Allah has full knowledge of all things”. The Quran proves the opposite (see 40/75) - - - if not the Quran is a falsification.

089 48/26g: “And Allah has full knowledge of all things”. Why then did he have to test even his followers - f.x. by sending them on raids for riches and captives for slaves and extortion for Muhammad (and himself?)

090 48/26h: "- - - knowledge - - -"-. See 26/83a above.

091 48/27a: "Truly - - -". Definitely not a proved truth - only a not proved claim. See 2/2b above.

When used in the Quran words like "true", "truth", "truly", "sure" "surety", "surely", "verity", "verily", etc. are claims, not proved facts. Also see 2/2b + 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones - and as for contradictions to the Bible also 40/20b. Also the latter half of the comments to 41/39a is very relevant. These and similar words cannot be taken at face value unless they are proved.

092 48/27b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A version of Muhammad's standard, but never proved, mantra to glue himself to his platform of power; his god - - -.

093 48/27c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

094 48/28a: “It is He (Allah*) Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No god has ever sent a messenger with a message that full of errors, mistaken facts, contradictions, invalid logic, etc.

095 48/28b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 48/27b-d above.

096 48/28c: “It is He (Allah*) Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad*) with Guidance - - -”. There is not much guidance in a teaching based on a book with that many mistakes and littered with hallmarks of a cheat and deceiver (loose statements and invalid “signs” and “proofs”, at least a few lies, etc.).

097 48/28d: “- - - the Religion of Truth - - -". At most partly the truth. See 13/1g and 40/75 above.

For one thing: That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. For another: Islam accepts the use of dishonesty - al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), deceit and betrayal (both permitted and practiced by Muhammad, and thus ok), and even broken words/promises/oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2). Islam is the only one of the big religions which accepts - yes, when it comes to defend or promote the religion even advices the use of dishonesty "if necessary". The claim that "Islam is the Religion of Truth" is not even irony, but an al-Taqiyya./p>

It also may be very telling that Islam and Muslims seldom claim that "Islam is the Religion of Honesty".

#####098 48/28f: "- - - to proclaim it (Islam*) over all religion - - -”. This part of the sentence tells volumes about Islam - and especially so as other verses in the Quran demand that other religions and their followers shall be suppressed and discriminated on, and pay extra tax - frequently a high one - "with willing submission".

This statement also is reflected in the Sharia laws, so watch out for the future.

099 48/29a: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” A version of Muhammad's standard, but never proved, mantra for gluing himself to his platform of power, Allah.

100 48/29b: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” There are so many mistakes and so many places tried cheating and deceiving in the Quran - is this any more reliable? - especially as it is said by the man himself, a man who was unreliable and who clearly liked power and riches for bribes - and women? Also see 63/5a above.

101 48/29c: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah”. No omniscient god uses a messenger telling so much which is wrong. An omniscient god does not make mistakes. And no good and benevolent god accepts a religion with basic elements like stealing/robbing, apartheid/suppression, dishonesty and murder for working tools, slave taking, rape and looting as "lawful and good", glorification of, and extra reward for terrorism and for going to war to mutilate and kill for the religious leaders, etc.

1. An omniscient god has correct information about everything.

2. "Do to others like you want others do to you".

102 48/29g: "- - - seeking the Grace from Allah - - -". This will be in vain unless he exists and is a god - if he belongs to the dark forces, one had better refrain from this.

103 48/29h: "- - - the Grace from Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

104 48/29i: "This is their (in praxis the verses of the Quran*) similitude in the Torah; and their similitude in the Gospel (Muhammad seems not to have known there were 4 - he always use singular) is - - -". You will find similitude between the Quran and OT, and you will find - some less - similitude between the Quran and NT, just like you will find between any two religions you compare - and between the Quran and even Donald Duck. But the differences between the fundamental elements, moral code, central teachings, etc., are so deep and - yes, fundamental - that there is no rational doubt that the never documented claim that Yahweh is just another name for Allah, is wrong. The two gods and their teachings are simply not even compatible. There is one possibility, though: If the god is strongly schizophrenic. And the same for the never proved claim that the Bible is a falsified version of the Quran - a claim which on top of all long since is proved wrong both by science and even more so - as they have searched more intensely and for much longer for proofs - by Islam.

105 48/29j: "- - - filled the Unbelievers with rage at them". More correct: With some distaste for all the wrongs in the Quran and some fear from the bloody sides of a typical war religion, with among other things its partly immoral moral code, etc.

106 48/29l: "Allah has promised - - -". This is claimed in the Quran, but never proved - lots of claims, but never a proof. Also remember that in all eons there never was one proved case of Allah neither giving nor honoring a promise. Just listen to Islam's silence about this - many claims, but not one proved case.

107 48/29m: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and partly unethical ethical code.

108 48/29n: "- - - Forgiveness - - -". This Allah only can offer if he exists and in addition is a god.

As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.

109 48/29o: "- - - a great Reward". The Quran's and Islam's Paradise - see 10/9f above.

7332 + 109 = 7441 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".
