1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 50

 

SURAH 50: QAF

(Mecca, 614 AD)

(The Surah Named after an Arabic letter, normally transcribed as 'q')

 

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 50/1c: “- - - by the Glorious Quran - - -”. A book with that many mistakes, contradictions, cases of invalid logic and unclear language (included "different ways of reading"), etc., and with so many hallmarks of cheating and deceiving (loose statements, invalid “signs” and “proofs”, at least a few lies, etc.) is not glorious. By the way the expression is an oath - swearing by the Quran. Sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths. Hope the rest is true, if not it is a false oath. Though in Islam in some cases false oaths are permitted - or can be forgiven if paid expiation for). Similar claims in 50/1 – 85/21

And if it is a false religion and there somewhere exists a real, true one, to which Islam blocks the road for its believers - - - what then for all the Muslims?

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

003 50/1d: “- - - by the Glorious Quran (thou (Muhammad*)) art Allah’s Messenger”. Allah according to Muhammad is swearing by the Quran that Muhammad is his messenger. It is a good thing for Allah here that according to Muhammad and the Quran (2/225a, 5/89a+b, 16/91d, 16/92a-b,66/2a) it is permitted to break/disuse even oaths - pay expiation if the disused oath is serious - as no omniscient god sent a messenger teaching so many wrong facts, etc. Also see 50/1b above.

004 50/1e: “- - - by the Glorious Quran (thou (Muhammad*)) art Allah’s Messenger”. See 49/29a-c - no omniscient god sends messages where so much is wrong. And: Is a book full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, etc. and thus obviously not from any god, religiously glorious? - well, is a book of a quality like the Quran glorious at all, generally speaking?

005 50/3a: “What! When we die and become dust (shall we live again?)”. Muhammad taught that at the Day of Doom all humans would be revived in flesh and bodily and not least mentally to be just the same humans that they were here on Earth except rejuvenated – Allah would assemble all the bones, dust, fluids and gas molecules you once consisted of, and recreate your (former) body and soul from it (though in the shape of a young and good-looking individual – but as the Quran talks little about your children in Paradise, it is unclear if babies and children who died were/are recreated as adults or not. It also is unclear if they will be self-sufficient in Paradise, or only members of your family). Believe it who wants to.

006 50/3c: "That (resurrection in body*) is a (sort of) return far (from our (Arab non-Muslims'*) understanding)." Perhaps their understanding was correct.

007 50/4: "- - - with Us (Allah*) is a record guarding (the full account)". Why does an omniscient god need a record?

008 50/5b: “But they (opponents of Muhammad*) deny the Truth (the Quran*) - - -”. That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact - actually it is proved at least partly wrong. See 50/2a above.

009 50/5c: “- - - the Truth (the Quran*) - - -”. That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See f. e. 13/1g and 40/75 above.

010 50/6a: "- - - how We (Allah*) have made it (the sky*) - - -". One of the very many natural phenomena Muhammad claims for glorification and "documentation" of his god - like so many priests in so many religions. Totally invalid as long as it is not proved that it really was Allah who created it - he has not even proved his own existence, something at least Yahweh has done if either the Bible or the Quran tells the truth on this point.

011 50/6b: "- - - and adorned it (the sky*) - - -". From other places in the Quran we know that Allah has adorned the sky by fastening the stars to the lowest heaven, below the sun and the moon. No comment - and none necessary. One of the many proofs for that no god has made the Quran - a god had known better. Any god.

012 50/7a: “And the earth - we (Allah*) have spread it out - - -”. The Quran tells the earth is flat - may be like a disk, but flat. Wrong. (It is not actually said in the Quran - it was a matter of cause - but each time it is compared to something, it is to something flat.) Actually there are 7 flat Earths according to the Quran(65/12) - one above the other according to the Hadiths. Doubly wrong.

013 50/7b: "- - - and set thereon (Earth*) mountains standing firm - - -". The Arab word used some places in the Quran for this operation is the same as when a sailor drops an anchor = dropped down. But not one single mountain on Earth are "set" or "dropped". Without exception they have grown up - by volcanic or by tectonic activity. Without exception.

014 50/7c: "- - - every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs) - - -". Wrong. Lots of plants - and even more so the beautiful (flower) ones - come not in pairs. They have both genders/sexes on the same plant/tree - normally both in the same flower. ANY god had known this - then who made the Quran? 

015 50/9a: "And We (Allah*) send down from the sky rain - - -". One of the Quran's many never proved claims. See f.x. 11/7a and 50/6a above.

016 50/9b: "- - - We (Allah*) produce therewith (the rain*) gardens and grains - - -". Everything on Earth is made by Allah - what about nature? - does it make nothing? And is the farmers' work a waste of time? See 11/7a above.

017 50/10: "And (Allah makes*) tall (and stately) palm-trees (etc.*) - - -". See 11/7b and 50/9b above.

018 50/11a: "(Allah makes*) sustenance for (Allah's*) Servants - - -". See 11/7b and 50/9b above.

019 50/11b: "- - - (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 humans.

All Muslims.

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, what then does unclearness prove?

020 50/11d: "Thus (like waking up nature by water*) will be the Resurrection." Wrong. To wake up from death is something entirely different from waking up from hibernating, which only is a special kind of sleeping. This even more so as Allah never proved he could neither create nor resurrect - whereas Yahweh did so if the Bible and/or the Quran tell(s) the truth about this.

021 50/12-14b: Here are listed a lot of people - many known mainly from the Quran and perhaps old Arab legends, etc. - claimed destroyed by Allah for their sins. Science knows a number of other more likely explanations.

022 50/13: “- - - the brethren of Lut (Lot*) - - -.” This refers to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, but it is extremely clear in the books that they were not his “brethren”. For one thing he was a stranger from very far away (Ur of the Chaldeans in south Iraq), and for another it is very clear from both the Bible and from the Quran that he was at odds with them – the connection was nowhere like a naturalized “brother”. Simply wrong.

The only reason we can see for the use of this word, is that Muhammad wanted the situation to fit into his statement that prophets were sent to their own people – “their own brethren”. Wrong – and forgetting also about f.x. Jonah.

023 50/14b: "- - - My (Allah's*) warning was duly fulfilled (in them (the sinning people*))". There has never in all history and before been even one proved case of a warning from Allah, not to mention the fulfilling of one - Just listen to Islam's total silence about proved cases. Lots of loose claims, never a proved case.

024 50/15a: "- - - first Creation - - - second Creation - - -". These claims from the Quran are quite interesting, as Muhammad never was able to prove anything about Allah, included his claimed power to create and recreate. This fact is extra interesting, as Yahweh proved he had the power, if the Bible and/or the Quran tell(s) the truth on this point.

025 50/15b: "- - - new creation - - -". According to the Quran: The recreation of the dead and disintegrated bodies to remake the same bodies - but as young adults (at least for adults) - for the next life.

026 50/16a: "It was We (Allah*) who created man - - -". See f.x. 6/2b and 11/7a above.

027 50/16b: "- - - created man - - -". According to science man was not created (6/2b), but developed from earlier primates.

028 50/16c: "- - - We (Allah*) know what dark suggestions his (man's*) soul makes for him". Why then 2/233h above?

029 50/16d: "- - - We (Allah*) are nearer to him (man*) than (his) jugular vein". One of the many, many never proved claims in the Quran. And once more: Why then 2/233h above?

030 50/17a: "Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his (any Muslim's - note: "his", not "her"*) doings) - - -":

Remember the next time you read in the Quran Muhammad explaining away questioned for proofs for Allah, by claiming that sending down angels meant that the Last Day had come.

Why does an omniscient god need angels to note down thing?

031 50/17b: "Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his (any Muslim's - note: "his", not "her"*) doings) - - -". Why is this necessary if Allah is omniscient and "sees all and hears all"?

032 50/18: Similar to 50/17 just above. The angels note down everything you think and say and do - why, if Allah is omniscient?

033 50/19: “- - - Truth (like in the Quran*) - - -”. That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. See 13/1g, 16/107b, and 40/75 above. Actually all the errors, etc. in the book prove that the Quran at most is partly true.

034 50/21b: (YA4957): “- - - with each will be an (angel (?*)) to drive, and an (angel (?*)) to bear witness.” Several interpretations are possible according to Muslim scholars: 1) It may refer to the 2 angels Islam claims are at your right and left side to note down good and bad deeds. 2) It may not be angels, but your evil deeds that “drive you like a task-master. 3) “His misused limbs and faculties will drive him to his doom, where his well-used limbs and faculties will witness for him” – to quote “The Meaning of the Holy Quran” exactly. Yes, the language in the Quran is clear and not to be understood - so clear that it is a proof for Allah, because only a god can have written/created it.

035 50/21c: "- - - Witness". Why does an omniscient god need witnesses?

036 50/23a: “And his Companion (a person at the Day of Doom*) will say - - -.” And once more a difficult Arab word: “qarinuhu” – literal meaning “his intimate companion” or something like that, A. Yusuf Ali writes. But the part of it “qarin” may be read as “(one’s) other self” – and then this meaning emerges: “And one part of him will say - - -.” Literally another meaning.

036 50/23b: "Here is (his Record) - - -". Why would an omniscient god need a record?

038 50/24a: “- - - throw into Hell every contumacious Rejecter (of Allah)!” Good Muslims do not end in Hell, so they clearly are much better. But who says this? - no god is involved in a book with so many errors, etc. like the Quran.

###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. Similar goes for how central forgiving is (even if we omit the logic that if Allah predestines everything, he cannot forgive unless he changes his Plan).

039 50/24-25: "- - - Rejecter of Allah, who forbade what was good, transgressed all bounds, cast doubts and suspicions". Well, f.x. the followers of Yahweh reject Allah, but they definitely do not forbid what is good - on the contrary they in some ways are more good towards other humans than Muslims - and transgressing also some Muslims do as well as Yahweh's people. Finally: To cast doubt and suspicion on books which deserves it, should be no great sin.

040 50/25a: "- - - good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes. They in some ways are similar to the Nazi and the apartheid ones - and to the ones of the Mafia, the Cosa Nostra, the Chinese Triads, etc.

041 50/25b: "- - - transgressed all bounds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses this word or the corresponding "transgressor" it sometimes means everything not according to the Quran, and always it is meant in accordance with the Quran's partly immoral moral code.

042 50/27b: "His Companion (see 50/27a just above*) will say: - - -". According to the Quran idols from wood, stone, metal, etc. will be able to remember, think and speak at the Day of Doom. Animism or actually anthropomorphism - inanimate matter or plants (or animals) behave like humans. Typical for primitive religions and fairy tales.

043 50/27c: "- - - he (non-Muslim*) was (himself) far astray".

If no god exists, he and a Muslim was equally astray.

If only Allah exists, but is no god, both are astray.

If only Allah exists, and is a god, the non-Muslim was astray 

If the non-Muslim's god (f.x. Yahweh) and Allah both exist as gods, none was astray.

If the non-Muslim's god (f.x. Yahweh) and Allah both exist, but Allah no god, the Muslim was astray.

if the non-Muslim's god (f.x. Yahweh) exists, but Allah not, the Muslim was astray.

#####Remember here that there exists not one valid proof for the existence of Allah, neither in the Quran nor anywhere else - MANY claims, but not one single valid proof. And perhaps as revealing: There does not exist one single proved trace from a book like the Quran, a religion like Islam, or a god like Allah anywhere in the world older than 610 AD, when Muhammad started his mission. Again MANY claims, but not one single proved case. The best proof for this is Islam`s silence about proofs - and remember that "A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion"

Some other quotes about proofs and invalid or made up proofs:

"Strong claims need strong proofs.

"A claim without a proof may be dismissed without a proof".

"Claims are cheap, but only proofs are proofs".

"The use of invalid proofs normally proves that something is fishy".

"The cheat or deceiver naturally must rely on claims pretending to be facts or proofs".

"A made up "proof" makes the man very suspect".

"A strong belief is not a proof - not necessarily even a truth".

"Wrong claims and invalid "proofs" are working tools of the cheat".

"A student with correct facts gets a more correct answer than 20 professors with wrong facts". (Invalid, "signs", claims, "proofs", etc. of course are wrong facts.)

And we may add from Peer Gynt in his original language: "Naar utgangspunktet er som galest, blir resultatet tidt originalest" - freely translated: "When you conclude from wrong claims/wrong facts/invalid "proofs/etc., you get wrong conclusions". Or may be more correct:"The more wrong your "facts" are, the more wrong your conclusions".

##044 50/28: "I (Allah*) had already sent you (non-Muslim*) Warning". To what avail and for what reason if you had predestined everything for me according to your Plan which nothing and nobody can change, so that I had no choice but to do and say exactly what you had predestined?!

045 50/29b: "- - - My (Allah's*) Servants". Here: Likely all humans.

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 humans.

All Muslims.

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, what then does unclearness prove?

046 50/31c: "- - - Righteous - - -": Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.

047 50/32: "This (Paradise*) is what was promised (by Allah*) for you (Muslims*)". But only via the Quran - a book with perhaps unbelievable 3ooo mistakes, etc. and thus clearly not from a god. Well, the promise is mentioned in the Hadiths too, but the source for the Hadiths is the same man as for the Quran.

048 50/33a: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

049 50/33b: "- - - a heart turned in devotion (to Him (Allah*))". To no avail if Allah does not exist and/or is not a god (not to mention if he exists in the dark forces).

050 50/34a: "(Allah? will say:*) 'Enter ye (Muslims*) therein (Paradise*) in Peace and Security this is the Day of Eternal life". This sentence may - may - be true if Allah exists, if he is a major god, and if the Quran has told the full truth and only the truth.

051 50/35a: "There (in Paradise) will be for them (Muslims*) all that they wish - - -". A parallel to 50/34a-b above. Also see 10/9a above.

052 50/35b: "- - - in Our Presence (in Heaven*)". Another parallel to 50/34a-b above. But beware that "presence" is a relative word: Most Muslims and according to the Quran and to Hadiths in a low heaven - even a prophet like Jesus only made it to the second heaven - whereas Allah lives above the 7.th heaven. And even though the distance between the heavens is unclear, Hadiths indicates big distances (500 years of travel).

053 50/36a: "But how many generations before them did We (Allah*) destroy (for their sins) - - -". Allah was a good and benevolent god? Yahweh with his small wars in and around Canaan (now approximately Israel) to establish and secure an country for the Jews in OT, is just a primary school pupil in this branch.

054 50/36b: "- - - stronger in power than they (Arabs contemporary of Muhammad*)". If you read the Quran you will see that Muhammad frequently claims that the people Allah destroyed because of sins, were stronger and better and richer and with more children than his own contemporary Arabs. Such claims made the effect of the stories stronger. But like most of what Muhammad told also these claims were never documented.

055 50/37a: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See f.x. 2/2b and 49/13b 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.

056 50/37b: “Verily in this is a Message - - - .” There simply is no message in it – not from a god - not until Islam really proves that a god really said and did all that this refers to.

057 50/37e: "- - - (the truth) - - -". The Quran has so many wrong points that at best it is partly the truth only. Also see 13/1g and 40/75 above.

#058 50/38a: “We (Allah*) created - - -". Often claimed newer proved. See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

#059 50/38b: “We (Allah*) created the heavens (plural and wrong) and the earth and all between them in Six Days”. Flatly wrong – it took some billions of years.

060 50/38c: “We (Allah*) created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days - - -.” Which in addition to reality also contradicts:

41/9-12 that tell that the job took 2 + 4 + 2 = 8 days. (Muslims try to explain this away with that the 2 first days were included in the 4 ones. But read 41/9 yourself – it clearly state that this part of the job took 2 days, this part 4 days, and the rest 2 days.) Besides: In reality it took billions of years.

061 50/38e: “- - - nor did any sense of weariness (from creating everything in 6 days*) touch Us (Allah*).” Why then has the week 7 days (the Bible tells the god rested the 7. day)?

062 50/39c: "- - - the praises of thy Lord (Allah) - - -". See 1/1a and see if you agree to that he deserves it - - - if he exists.

063 50/39-40: Here simply are mentioned some of the times of the day when Muslims are to pray. But here is an essential point: To Allah prayers at fixed times are so essential, that he has made the 5 fixed ones one of the 5 pillars of Islam. Yahweh does not care about that kind of formalism at all - pray when there is a wish or a need. One of the 100% for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

064 50/40: "- - - celebrate His (Allah's*) praises - - -". See 1/1a and see if you agree to that he deserves it - - - if he exists.

065 50/42b: "- - - in (very) truth - - -". See 2/2b and 13/1g above.</>

066 50/43a: "Verily - - -". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See f.x. 49/13b 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.

067 50/43b: "Verily it is We (Allah*) Who give Life and Death - - -". See f.x. 6/2b 7/158, 11/7a, 21/56b, and 50/6a above.

068 50/43c: "- - - to Us (Allah*) is the Final Goal (at the Day of Doom*)". Often claimed, never documented - like nearly everything central in the Quran.

069 50/45a: "- - - so admonish with the Quran - - -". Admonish with a book of a quality like the Quran?

070 50/45c: "- - - not to overawe them (non-Muslims*) by force - - -". This was in 614 AD. Guess if Muhammad abrogated (made invalid) and forgot this sentence when he gained enough power!!!

7492 + 70 = 7562 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".
