1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 113
18 May 2014
SURAH 113: AL-FALAQ (The Daybreak)
(Year unknown. Perhaps early Mecca)
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.
002 113/1aa: A serious one: According to our sources the word "say" are not in the original Arab text (there are indications for that this is the case several places in the Quran according to f.x. ibn Warraq: "Why I am not a Muslim", chapter 5, subchapter "The Words of God"). Then it is Muhammad who is saying:" I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn (Allah*)". This also is one of the surahs (others were no. 1 and no.114) Ibn Masud, one of Muhammad's companions - d. ca. 652 AD - said did not belong in the Quran. But if some surahs wrongly have ended in the Quran, how many more do not belong there? And how many were left out - there are rumors about that, too (some 100 verses).
But how could Muhammad speak in a book made before the world was created, or which existed since eternity? Something is seriously wrong.
Plus: How reliable is a religion which uses falsifications to hide serious errors?
003 113/1a: “- - - the Lord (Allah*) of the Dawn - - -“. In reality Allah is not god for anything, unless he exists - - - and unless he in addition is a god.
004 113/2-5: Different things you can pray to Allah for help against - but in vain unless Allah exists and in addition is a good and benevolent god - - - and is able to change his Plan for you.

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".
