For the fact mistakes and errors based on themes, see Part II, Chapter 1, Subchapter 3, Sections 1 through 16.
Comments numbered by 3 numbers (included 00 or 0) a few places followed by one small letter = clear mistakes. Comments numbered by 00 or 0 followed by 1, 2 or 3 letters (big or small) = likely mistake.
All verses or parts of verses where we have found mistakes are included with three exceptions:
**001 1/1 – 7. “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah The Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds; Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgement. Thee do we worship and Thine aid we seek. Show us the straight way, The way of those Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray”.
This really is a bad one as it is a prayer to Allah, it is not Allah speaking (When Muhammad is to repeat what Allah says, Allah gives the order “Say”) - and besides Allah does not pray to himself!! A clear mistake compared to what Islam claims: It is all sent down by Allah (The Quran is said to be either made by Allah, or never made, but has always existed - the last claim is impossible, though, as angels are speaking at least one place in the Quran (also according to Muslim scholars), which proves that the Quran cannot have been made until after at least the first angels were created).
There are more places where it is clear that it is Muhammad that is speaking - also in contradiction to the statements that the Quran is from Heaven, made by Allah or never made but existed from eternity.
It tells something that in the very beginning, and in what is said in a way to be the essence of the book, there is something seriously wrong, compared to the for Islam very fundamental - but unproved - statement that the book is sent down by an omniscient god, and is perfect and without mistakes.
Surah 1: At least 1 mistake.
001 2/1: “- - - the Worlds - - -“. Already a reference to the 7 Earths that exists according to the Quran. (One above the other, according to Hadiths). Wrong – there are no 7 Earths in spite of 65/12. See 2/22a.
*002 2/2: “This is the Book (the Quran*); in it is guidance sure, without doubt - - -”. As you will see, there are a lot of mistaken facts, contradictions, and unproven arguments, etc. in the Quran. That means that the guidance is far from sure. All the mistakes etc. also produce a lot of doubt about the rest of the text.
*003 2/4: “- - - the Revelation (the Quran*) sent to thee (Muhammad*), and sent before thy time (= the Torah/Bible*) - - -.” Wrong. The Quran is not the same as the Torah or the Bible, and science has proved beyond any reasonable or judicial doubt that the NT in the Bible never was falsified + that if the Torah/OT is falsified, it must have happened at least 300 years BC, and most likely at least 500 – 800 BC or earlier, if ever. It also is very clear that Islam has not the slightest documentation for their repeated claims – guess if they had been quick to produce it if they had had even a tiny wee bit of a proof!!
004 2/5: “They (the believers*) are on true guidance - - -”. With so many mistaken facts, the guidance at best is partly true.
005 2/22a: “- - - the heavens, your canopy - - -“. Plural and wrong – referring to the 7 heavens of the Quran - - - and of wrong Greek and Persian astronomy at the time of Muhammad. See 2/29 – 23/17 – 23/86 – 41/2 - 65/12 – 67/3 – 78/12, and also 10/6 – 31/10.
*006 2/22b: “- - - and the heavens (plural and wrong – see 2/22a just above) your canopy - - -”. The heaven/sky is no canopy. The “heaven” we see at daytime, really is an illusion caused by bending and splitting of the sunlight, and the “smooth” heaven we see at night, also is an illusion, as we are unable to see the third dimension at those distances, and get the impression that the stars all are at the same distance from us. Any god had known this, but Mohammad not. Also see 67/3a – 67/3b – 67/5a - 67/5b. Muslims tend to explain the heavens (plural and wrong) with wague claims about space and stars and galaxies - but each time they then “forget” to explain f. ex. how the stars are fastened to the lowermost of the 7 heavens the Quran tells exists. And they forget the moon (and the sun?) among the heavens – beyond the stars! They also sometimes tell that the 7 heavens = 7 layers in the atmosphere. No comments - but think about stars like Aldebaran - a giant star - fixed to a layer in our atmosphere below our moon. A joke.
007 2/22c: “- - - rain from the heavens - - -“. Plural (7 heavens) and wrong. See 2/22b above.
008 2/22d: “- - - when ye (people*) know (the truth (the Quran*)”. The Quran at most represents partly the truth, as you will see. See 13/1 – 40/75 – 41/12.
**009 2/23: “- - - what We (Allah*) have revealed (the Quran*) - - -“. Wrong. No omniscient god has made or cherished (cfr. “the Mother Book – f. ex. 13/69) a book with that many mistaken facts, contradictions and other errors. Either it is not made by Allah or Allah is not omniscient – if he exists.
010 2/24: “But if ye cannot – and of surety ye (non-Muslims*) cannot (produce a surah of the same quality like in the Quran*) - - -“. The surahs are no good literature – more or less copies of Arab folklore, legends, fairy tales, and stuff Muhammad had been told from the Bible - and mainly not from the Bible itself but from apocryphal (made up) stories. In addition the composition and presentation of the texts belong in primary school. Many a good writer could collect such stories and do much better (on these points f. ex. the Bible is far better written). The Arab language itself is said to be excellent – but when you know that the language was polished for some 250 years by top intelligent and top learned men, until it got its somewhat final form around 900 AD (the Arab alphabet was not completed until then), that point tells nothing about the original Qurans from around 650 – caliph Uthman’s and others’. The claim is wrong.
**011 2/25: “- - - glad tidings - - -.” Wrong. At the very best one can say that the Quran brought some glad tidings for all the bad ones, wanting loot and slaves and power, and for some longing for a strong religion - - - if it was not because the Quran itself proves 100% that something is very wrong in the book. So wrong that it neither can be made nor revered by any god – not even by a small mini god. Too much is wrong in the book. Also see 61/13.
012 2/29a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – no 7 heavens. See 2/22b.
*013 2/29b: “- - - He gave order and perfection to the seven firmaments - - -”. Firmament is another word for the heaven we see, though mostly used for the night sky. The Quran many places tells about the seven heavens or firmaments or tracts (the word “heavens” or similar is used in plural in the Quran at least 199 times) - there is no doubt that according to the Quran there are 7 (material) heavens. (Islam also “knows” who inhabit the different heavens - f. ex. Jesus in the 2. heaven, Joseph in 4., Aaron in 5., Moses in 6., and Abraham in the 7. heaven, and Allah above the 7. heaven, to mention some. This is not said in the Quran, though). There also is no doubt that the Quran believes the heavens are material - if not it was not possible to build it or to fix the stars to the lowermost heaven, like the Quran states several places. No god had believed this - but Muhammad did, as this was what one believed in the Middle East at the time of Muhammad. The seven heavens are taken from old Greek astronomy - or perhaps from Persian astronomy, which also believed in 7 heavens. Any god, but not Muhammad, would have known it was very wrong. Islam has several “explanations” concerning this very obvious mistake, but we have never seen or heard any Muslim mention even the possibility that Muhammad’s picture about astronomy could be explained by his believing in Greek or Persian astronomy.
Muslims sometimes explains that 7 in old Arab was a synonym for “many” (and 70 for “very many“), and that the Quran consequently does not mean 7 but many. But honestly “many” is at least as wrong as “7”.
*014 2/32: “- - - it is Thou (Allah*) who art perfect in knowledge and wisdom”. All the mistakes prove that the maker of the Quran was not perfect in knowledge, and all the invalid logic proves he also was not perfect in wisdom. At least something is wrong.
015 2/39: “- - - Signs - - -“ also written “Sign”, “His Signs”, “Our (Allah’s*) Signs” or “My (Allah’s*) Signs” or other variations. In “Quran-speak” it means an indication or a proof for Allah’s and/or the Quran’s existence. In reality it proves absolutely nothing, as without exception they only are lose statements or as loose claims just hanging in empty air, all built on nothing, because it never is proved or documented that Allah really said or did or created what the Quran in each case claims he said or did or created, and then uses as a “sign”. Or they rest on other claims that are not proved. According to all human thinking, all judicial laws, and also according to the even more strict laws of logic such “proofs” flatly and simply are invalid and without any value. After all a valid proof is: “One or more proven facts that can give only one conclusion”, and in the Quran all “signs” without exception builds on claimed “facts” that neither the book nor Islam proves – or are able to prove (well, there may be a few exception in the “signs” taken from the Bible, but they in case proves Yahweh, not Allah – we know that Muslims and the Quran likes to say that those two just are different names for the same god, but that is not true unless the god is strongly ill mentally (schizophrenic), as the teachings fundamentally are too different (more about this other places in “1000+ Mistakes in the Quran”.)).
In addition there is the fact that any priest in any religion can claim exactly the same for his god(s) as Muslims claim for Allah, in absolutely all cases where the word “sign(s)” in the Quran is not borrowed from the Bible, as long as no real proof or no real documentation is demanded brought forth – words are that cheap. “Baal makes the sun rise in the east. Allah cannot make it rise in the west. Then Baal is the real god and Allah a fake one.” Infantile “proofs”, but this is the kind of level you find on the “signs” and “proofs” in the Quran (This example is taken from the Quran – Abraham is proving his god Allah, but of course with Allah as the hero. Totally invalid as a proof).
***As said the claims logically are absolutely without any value as indication/proof for a deity, not to mention for a specific god – f. ex. Allah. And it documents an interesting fact: Islam has not got one single proof neither for Allah, nor for verification of the Quran, nor for Muhammad’s connection to a deity. IF THEY HAD HAD ONE SINGLE SUCH PROOF – EVEN A SMALL ONE – YOU BET THEY HAD TOLD ABOUT IT AND USED IT! Islam is only built on lose words and as loose and unproven claims - - - made by a man whose words hardly would have been accepted as “bona fide” proofs in Old Bailey, London. The underlying claims that the so-called signs have any value as proofs or at least indications for Allah simply are wrong unless Islam first proves that Allah really was/is behind the “signs”.
You find the word used many places in the Quran.
016 2/41a: “And believe in what I (Allah*) reveal (the Quran*) - - - “. An omniscient god had not revealed a book with so many mistakes.
017 2/41b: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
**018 2/41c: “(The Quran*), confirming the revelation (the OT - Old Testament*) which is with you (Jews*) - - -”. The Quran is not confirming OT and absolutely not NT - the fundamental thoughts and teaching are too different especially from NT and the new covenant (Matt. 26/28, Mark 14/24, Luke 22/20) – the new covenant that Muslims never mention, and except for the educated ones have never been told about.
019 2/42a: ”- - - and cover not Truth with falsehood - - -”. See 40/75.
*020 2/42b: “- - - nor conceal the Truth when you know (what it is)”. For “truth” see 40/75. The contents of this and the entrance above: This is said to be aimed at the Jews that did not want to misunderstand 5 Mos. 18/15 (and 18/18) to mean that this verse foretells Muhammad - (translated from Swedish): “A prophet from among your own people, from your brothers, the Lord, your God, let come to you. Listen to him”. That means God is saying: “I will let a prophet come forth from among your brothers - - -”.Muslims say “brothers” here mean the Arabs, and that the Bible here talks about Muhammad. But very honestly: The brother of Jews is another Jew especially as it is said he shall come “from among your own people” - the Jews’ own people. (We use the word Jew, because that is the normal word today, even if the word is much younger than the time of Moses. Also Yusuf Ali uses it). This simply may be foretelling about Jesus, but Muslims has “adjusted” the meaning.
Actually the word “brother” or similar is used in figurative meaning at least 55 times in OT, nearly always meaning another Jew or other Jews (1 exception: A king talks to another king. A very few other exceptions: About Lot’s people and about Edomites - descendants of Esau, the brother of the patriarch Jacob), and absolutely never about Arabs. Arabs and Arabia are mentioned half a dozen times in the Bible – without exception either in neutral forms or as enemies, never as friends or relatives. Worse – and never mentioned by Muslims: The word is used in the Quran some 30 times, and always about fellow (Muslim) Arabs (one exception, where the main point is that the bad hypocrites stick together). There simply exists no place neither in the Bible nor in the Quran expressing brotherhood between Jews and Arabs (but many to the contrary). Besides 5. Mos. 15. and 18. continues into 21. (NEVER mentioned by Muslims) that explains that one will recognise the Lord’s prophet on that they make prophesies, and correct prophesies. Muhammad never made real prophesies – he did not even pretend to or claim to have that gift, not one single time in all the Quran. (He simply was no real prophet, but borrowed that imposing and impressive title.) On the contrary he was busy explaining away why he was unable to make miracles (prophesying is a kind of miracle). Muhammad thus could not – also because of 21. – be Yahweh’s promised prophet. And as he in reality was no prophet at all – he had as mentioned not that gift – he absolutely could not be a special prophet as he in reality was no prophet (well, there are made other definitions for a prophet, but without being able to make true prophesies you are no real prophet), and the claim is out of the question.
It simply is a case of a word that is possible to give more than one meaning, and a religion in dire need from lack of proofs for their presumed god, and from sheer necessity because they falsely were promised to find proof or at least indications in the Bible, cling to a meaning that is foreign to the Bible’s normal use of the word, and quote it out of context (5. Mos. 18/21 even makes Muhammad impossible as an explanation here), but full of wishful thinking.
**Islam will have to produce strong proofs. After all it is they that produce this unlikely claim, and then it is up to them to prove it – not up to others to disprove it. (But then Islam lives on unproven claims and statements and blind belief).
00a 2/50: “- - - We (Allah*) divided the sea for you (Moses and his Jews*) - - -“. From other places in the Quran (and in most translations of the Bible) it is told that this was the Red Sea. But in the Hebrew original the name is Yam Suph, which as well can mean “The Sea of Reeds” (this also is confirmed in many footnotes in NIV (“New International Version” of the Bible)). The Sea of Reeds (also called Timsah Sea) used to be a big lake where the Suez Canal now runs – not far from the Bitter Seas. The name tells it was just a shallow lake – the longest reeds we have been able to find, is a kind of rice that can be up to 5 -7 m long and grows in the big sea Tonle Sap in Cambodia, and the reeds growing in this area of Egypt are shorter - - - and the water cannot be deeper than the reeds get their “heads” above the water”.
Also look at the map: Goshen where the Jews settled were in the river delta of the Nile. To get to Sinai they had to go south-south-east. It would be stupidity beyond any credibility to go so far west that they ended at the western side of the Red Sea, and thus force such a huge number of people and animals to cross the sea by boats they did not have (remember they did not know about the opening of the sea – fire/smoke-column or not (= the pathfinder/Yahweh according to the Bible)). After all they according to the Bible were 600ooo men + women + children + animals and belongings. (Theoretically it is quite possible for 70 – 100 (depending on how many wives his 11 sons in the group had) persons that came with Jacob + Joseph and his family, to become may be 2000ooo “Jews” 430 years later.)
Science tells that – if the Exodus took place – the “Jews” quite likely were overtaken as they marched or camped along that lake.
*021 2/53: “- - - We (Allah*) gave Moses the scripture - - -”. The books named after Moses (the Torah) are not written by Moses. Moses lived (if he is not a fiction) around 1300-1200 BC (if the Exodus from Egypt really took place, it took place ca. 1235 BC during the reign of Ramses II according to science), and those books were written not earlier than ca. 800 BC - perhaps as late as 500 BC - also according to science. A god had known that, whereas Muhammad knew nothing about their real age, and had to guess. (To be exact: The Bible says that Yahweh told Moses the law – nothing material except the two stone tablets where the ten Commandments were inscribed, were brought down from the mountain – and that he was told the law and himself wrote it down afterwards. OT also says that when Solomon moved the Ark of Covenant into the Temple in Jerusalem (1.Kings 8/9); it only contained the two stone tablets. There is nothing about “the Books of Moses”, though the OT makes it clear that the laws existed in writing and were found again later – but science is unanimous that the Books of Moses (you also see it written in singular) are written much later. If Muslims claim something else, they will have to produce proofs.) The law really is part of the Torah/Books of Moses.
022 2/61: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00b 2/65-66: “We (Allah*) said to them ’Be ye apes, despised and rejected’. So We made it an example to their own time and to their posterity, and a lesson for those who fear Allah”. That humans are changed into apes is an extraordinary statement. An extraordinary statement needs an extraordinary proof. The Quran here offers no proof at all.
00c 2/73: “Allah said: ‘Strike the (body) with a piece of the (heifer)’. Thus Allah bringet the dead to life - - -“. It is not possible to wake up a dead this way. Islam will have to produce a solid proof – especially as this story is not in the Bible, and thus is taken from a legend.
**023 2/75: “- - - seeing that a party of them (the Jews in Medina*) hear the word of Allah, and perverted it knowingly after they understood it - - -.” Wrong. Science have shown very clearly that the Bible is not falsified – and consequently that it has never been something like the Quran. If Islam means something else, they will have to bring proofs, not only loos claims and even looser statements. If Islam had had even a small proof, the world had been forced to hear it every two hours or more – at least.
*We may add that Islam and Muslims here try to use the Bible to prove their words – f. ex. Jeremiah 23/36: “Ye have perverted the words of the living God.” This one is dishonesty on two levels:
Knowing that this is taken from the widely distributed and highly prised “The Message of the Quran”, canonized or at least certified by the foremost Islamic intellectual institutions in the world, cases like this gives us a bad taste on their behalf: To resort to intellectual dishonesty of this kind is humiliating when found out.
*024 2/79: “Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands (= falsify*) - - -.” See 2/75 just above. (And no god made a book with so many mistaken facts and other mistakes like you find in the Quran: What if it is a falsification - is it then "Woe to" Muhammad? - he f. ex. got nearly no children with all his wives and lost nearly all the few children he got. And there is no proof for whether he ended in Hell or Paradise - if such ones exist.)
025 2/87: “We (Allah*) gave Moses the Book - - -”. See 2/53.
*026 2/89a: “And then there comes to them (Jews in Medina*) a Book (the Quran*) from Allah - - -”. A book with that many mistakes, invalid “proofs” etc., is not from an omniscient god? See 41/12.
*027 2/89b: “- - - (a Book (the Quran*)) confirming what is with them (Jews and Christians*) (the Torah and the Bible) - - -”, which means that the Quran confirms the Torah and other holy Jewish scriptures and the rest of the Bible. But too many fundamental principles are different - the Quran is no confirmation of neither the Torah, etc., nor of the Bible, not to mention of the New Testament (NT) on which the Christian religion is built. F. ex. “You shall not kill” vs. “You shall not kill without a good reason”, the value of and strife for “the lost lamb”, vs. “You shall not mourn the wrongdoers that ends in Hell”, “Love your enemy” vs. “Kill the enemy wherever you find him”, and “Love your enemy” vs. incitement to and orders of war and hate and discrimination of “infidels”, just to mention some of the deep differences. Not to mention “my empire is not of this world” and "give onto God what belongs to God, and onto the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor" - the last meaning money - (translated from Swedish), compared to: Fight for Allah and Muhammad till all non-Muslims are utterly suppressed and pay extra tax.
028 2/89c: “- - - when there comes to them (Jews in Medina*) that (texts that later became the Quran*) which they should have recognized (indicating they should have recognized the texts from Muhammad in their OT/Torah). Wrong – the underlying basic thinking and a lot of details are so different, that the only thing possible to recognize, is that something is very wrong.
029 2/90: “- - - (the revelation (the Quran*)) which Allah has sent down - - -“. No omniscient god ever made, sent down or revered a book with that many mistakes and that much invalid logic.
030 2/91a: “Believe in what Allah hath sent down (= the Quran*)”. Is it really Allah that has sent down a book with so many mistaken facts? Simply no - not if he was omniscient.
031 2/91b: “- - - yet they reject all besides, even if it be the Truth (the Quran*)”. A book with so many mistaken facts is at best only partly the truth.
032 2/91c: “- - - confirming what is with them (the Torah, etc., (= OT*) and the Bible*)”. The Quran is no confirmation of neither the Torah nor the Bible - see 2/89 above + 3/3 below.
***00d 2/93: “We (Jews in Medina*) hear and we disobey”. Muhammad Asad adds (com.77): “Even if they did not say those words, their later behaviour justifies this quote”. But words that are not said, are not said, and cannot be quoted in honesty – would a god resort to such arguments? And how come that this quote is in the Quran – may be billions of years old and infallible and revered by Allah – if they did not say it? - and how many other made up arguments do you in case find in the Quran?
***033 2/94: “If the last Home, with Allah (Yahweh*), be for you (Jews*) specially, and not for anyone else, then seek for ye death, if ye are sincere - - -“. Wrong. A Jew (or a Christian) cannot seek death to go to Heaven, because self murder – also indirectly – is a serious sin (destroying the gift from God - your life) = end in Hell. Any god had known – but obviously not Muhammad. Worse: Muslaim scholars today know this, but use the argument anyhow in their congregations.
00e 2/95: “But they (Jews*) will never seek for death, on account of the (sins) which their hands have sent on before them.” The reason more likely is the one mentioned in 2/94 just above.
034 2/97a: “- - - he (Gabriel*) brings down the (revelation (the Quran*)) to thy heart by Allah’s will - - -“. No omniscient god sends down a book with that many mistakes and contradictions and that much invalid logic.
035 2/97b: “- - - a confirmation of what went before (Torah + Bible*)”. Wrong. See 2/89 above and 3/3 below.
*036 2/97c: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. Wrong. At the very best one can say that the Quran brought some glad tidings to all the bad ones, wanting loot and slaves and power, and to some0nes longing for a strong religion - - - if it was not because the Quran itself proves 100% that something is very wrong in the book. So wrong that it neither can be made nor revered by any god – not even by a small mini god. Too much is wrong in the book. Also see 61/13.
037 2/99a: “We (Allah*) have sent down to thee (people*) manifest Signs - - -“. The Quran is overloaded with what it says are “signs” (indicated to be proofs) and “Clear Signs” or like here “manifest Signs” (indicated to be strong proofs) – and not one single of them proves anything about Allah or the Quran or Muhammad, as the book NEVER proves, only claims, that Allah did this or that which it then calls a “sign” or a “clear sign” or a “proof” (there may be some exceptions for signs taken from the Bible, but those in case prove Yahweh, not Allah – and only Islam claims that Yahweh and Allah is the same god (which they cannot be, unless the god is schizophrenic – they are too different, especially when Yahweh is acting according to the New Covenant from NT (f. ex. Luke 22/20), which came some 580 years before Muhammad started his preaching, but which Muslims never mention). Especially claims for “Clear Signs” are so obviously wrong, that it is impossible not to include them in these columns: “Mistaken facts”. They are not signs – and definitely no clear signs - for a god, and even if they were, they absolutely were no clear signs for Allah,
*038 2/99b: “We have sent down to thee (people*) manifest Signs (ayat); and none reject them but those who are perverse - - -“. Wrong. To question “signs” that are not proved coming from Allah, and thus logically invalid as signs, not to mention as proofs, is not a sign of being perverse – on the contrary; blindly to believe in it without even asking questions is a strong indication of being naive, especially when one knows how morally degenerated the only source for the Quran – Muhammad – was.
*039 2/101a: “And when there came to them a Messenger from Allah - - -”. Can a man making so many mistakes in the book he dictated - presumably on behalf of Allah - really be a messenger of an omniscient god? Or if he made no mistakes, and the Quran is faked - is he then from Allah? An omniscient god simply did not send down a book with that many mistakes, etc.
040 2/101b: “- - - a party of the People of the Book (here Jews – the People of the Book = Jews and Christians, and “the Book” in this connection is the Bible*) threw away the Book of Allah (the Quran*), as if (it had been something) they did not know!” The Quran here tells that the Jews recognized the Quran from the OT. That is wrong – there are so fundamental differences and so many points that are different between the Quran and the Bible, that the only thing that is possible to know, is that something is utterly wrong. One of the proofs for this, is that the absolute majority of the thousands of Jews in the region refused to accept Islam – even in the face of ruin or slavery or death.
041 2/101: “(Muhammad was*) confirming what (the Bible, etc.*) was with them (the Jews and the Christians*)”. Wrong. See 2/89.
042 2/102: “- - - the buyers of (magic) - - -“. Magic is just superstition - any god had known this.
*00f 2/105: “But Allah will choose for His special Mercy whom He will - - -“. Muhammad Asad here explains that this is stating that Jews and Christians refused to believe in Muhammad and his Quran, because Muhammad was from the “outside” – the Quran, Islam and Muslims repeats and repeats this unproven claim and disuses it as an “explanation”, whereas the real main reason why they did not accept Muhammad's new religion, was that there were such a number of and such fundamental differences from the Bible, that something obviously was very wrong. Besides, the Jews – the absolute majority of non-Arabs in the area – believed they had a covenant with Yahweh, and both the Quran and modern time Islam and Muslims are dishonest enough never to mention this fact as a main reason for why the Jews were not interested in Muhammad’s teachings: The covenant and the very different religion were the two reasons why they were not interested in Islam – not what the Quran and Islam claims and claims and claims (as normal for them absolutely without any proof or documentation): – that the reason was that Muhammad was not a Jew.
043 2/107a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong (no 7 heavens). See 2/22a.
*00g 2/107b: “And besides Him ye (people*) have neither patron nor helper.” Well, Jesus told many times and in front of lots of witnesses that he could help, and even the Quran admits that Jesus was honest.
044 2/108: “But whoever changeth from Faith (Islam*) to Unbelief, hath strayed without doubt from the even way (the road to Paradise*)”. With all the mistakes, contrasictions, and wrong logic in the Quran, there is a most real doubt, and reason for doubt, for that Islam can be “the even way” to Paradise – this even more so when one knows that the only source for the stories in the Quran, was the very morally degenerated man and self proclaimed prophet Muhammad (who did not have the gift of being able to make prophesies, but used the nice title all the same) – nearly all self proclaimed prophets through the time have turned out to be false prophets wanting something in this life – normally money, women and/or power - without caring too much for the means they used. Muhammad at least wanted women and power. (And where do all Muslims end if Islam is a wrong way and they discover it too late?)
045 2/109: “- - - after the Truth (the Quran*) hath become manifest - - -“. The Quran at best is partly the truth – too many mistakes, too many contradictions, too mush twisted logic, etc.
046 2/113a: “- - - they (Jews and Christians*) profess to study the (same) Book.” Wrong for two reasons: One: Jews only have the Old Testament (OT). Two: The Christian religion is built on NT, with OT mainly as historical background – a fact that opponents often forget or “forget”.
**047 2/113b: “Yet they (Jews and Christians*) (profess to) study the same Book”. This is only partly true. Jews study only OT. Christians build their religion on the much milder and more human NT and the new covenant (Luke 22/20) – the covenant Muslims never mention - with OT mainly as historical background. This is a fact that often is forgotten or “forgotten” when one talks about the Christian religion - especially when one wants to paint the religion as black as possible.
*048 2/116a: “They say; ‘Allah has begotten a son”, (which the Quran vehemently denies*). But Jesus often called God/Yahweh father - there were many, many witnesses to this. If he spoke the truth - and even the Quran says he was an honest person - this in case means the Quran is wrong here. (Yahweh is called the father of Jesus at least 163 times in the Bible, and Jesus the son of Yahweh at least 66 times. And remember: In spite of undocumented claims from Islam, science has shown that the Bible is not falsified).
049 2/116b: “And on earth: everything renders worship to Him.” From other places in the Quran one knows that “everything” is meant literally – every living being and all inanimate things. As one never observes any other living beings, not to mention inanimate things, than Muslims worship Allah – and except for humans even no god – and the same for inanimate things, and the nature thus shows that the claim is not true, this is one of the claims that must be deemed untrue unless Islam proves it. Proves, not only states or claims. (To quote remark 120 in Abdullah Yusuf Ali: “The Meaning of the Quran”: “- - - everything in heaven and earth celebrates the glory of Allah”. But like normal for Muslims it only is a claim – no documentation, no proof, and no real explanation).
050 2/117a: “Verily, We (Allah*) has sent thee (Muhammad*) in truth - - -“. All the mistakes, etc. in the Quran tells that this cannot be true - that he was not sent by an omniscient god.
051 2/117b: “- - - We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) in truth - - -“. Well, that is a very central question: How much of what Muhammad told, was true?
052 2/118: “We (Allah*) have indeed made clear the Signs unto any people who hold firmly to Faith - - -.” There simply are no valid clear signs – proofs – for Allah anywhere in the Quran. See 2/99 above.
053 2/119a: “Verily, We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muslims/people*) in truth a bearer of glad tidings and a warner (= Muhammad) - - -.” No omniscient god has sent a bearer of tidings in which so much is wrong.
054 2/119b: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. That the Quran is “glad tidings” at very best is only partly true. See 2/97c above and 61/13 below.
055 2/120: “The Guidance of Allah (the Quran*) – that is the only Guidance”. A book with so many mistakes, so much invalid logic, and so much inhumanity is not at all a guidance – at best a misguidance.
056 2/125a: “- - - take ye the Station of Abraham (in/near Kabah*) - - -”. Abraham never was in Mecca. See 2/127 below.
057 2/125b: “- - - the Station of Abraham - - -“ is a mark in a stone. Muhammad indicated and Islam says that mark was made from Abraham’s feet when he stood there and built the Kabah. Let the fact that Abraham never was in Mecca (unless Islam proves it – see 2/127 below) aside: No worker building something ever stood so long at one and the same place, that his feet made a mark in a solid natural stone - marks visible centuries later. Now, Islam tells the mark (actually 2 - one for each foot) is a result of a miracle, as they claim the stone turned so soft that Abraham's feet sank into it. (They also claim that the stone is from Jannah - (the gardens of Heaven)). Well, Islam has till now even proved that Abraham even ever visited Mecca, a place that was very prohibitting for him and his big flocks of animals - a barren desert to quote Muslims, and his claimed first trip even before the Zamzam well even was found, according to Islam - laying behind forbidding desert lands through which he had to lead all his sheep, goats, cows, etc. and find food and water for them - and he had many as he was a rich man. And on top of all a place very far from where he lived and a place without any attractions for a big owner of cattle, etc. Believe it whoever wants - but go to a doctor if you believe this and the rest of that story (big mosque built by 2 nomads, Ishmael bringing a big stone - too big to lift - for his father to stand on, and a stone shining so strongly that Allah had to switch off its light) without reasonable proofs.
058 2/125c: “- - - We covenanted with Abraham and Ishmael, that they should sanctify my House (Kabah in Mecca*)”. Abraham and Ishmael had nothing to do with the building of the Kabah - see 2/127 below.
059 2/126: “- - - Abraham said: ‘Make this (Mecca*) a City Of Peace - - -.” Wrong. Abraham never was in Mecca, unless Islam produces solid proofs for it. See 2/217 just below.
**060 2/127a: “And remember that Abraham and Ishmael raised the foundations of the House (Kabah*) (with this prayer): - - - “. Abraham never built the foundation of Kabah (and a contradiction; other verses say he built the building, not only the foundation of it) - and there are several reasons for that:
Abraham simply was not involved in the building of Kabah, and it is highly unlikely he ever visited Mecca and even the Arab peninsula. It looks like a fairy tale made up to give weight to Kabah and to Islam. And not least to Muhammad, who 2500 years later could tell he was direct descendant from Abraham - without the slightest written paper from all those years. 2500 years of mostly an-alphabetic nomads without any written history. Believe it if you want – and if you know who was your forefather the year 500 BC (= ca. 2500 years ago).
It also is worth adding that Muslims say that Mecca was where Abraham’s (or actually Sarah’s) slave, Hagar, and his and her child Ismael (Ishmael) were sent away from Abraham’s camp, that the two lived there, and that Abraham frequently visited them later. There is no source of information for this. The OT says they lived in Negev, which is weeks by camel from Mecca - and much, much longer for large flocks of sheep, goats, and cattle (American cowboys driving flocks of cattle to the railway, made 10-12 miles – 16-20 km - a day. The nomads in the south hardly moved any faster - - - if they could find water). In addition to the long time it would take, many animals hardly would survive the long trek through the harsh Arab desert. And there was in addition no reason for him and his family to take such a dangerous and meaningless trip with their animals to a barren and dry valley. And as he never visited Mecca, he could not have left Hagar and Ismael there (this even more so as the Bible mention that Ishmael lived near the border of Egypt and got his wife from Egypt (see just below) - - - and science has proved that the Bible is not falsified - the easy way out for Muslims when the Bible mentions things they do not like). If Islam wants to insist that he ever visited Mecca, they have to produce strong proofs, as it is extremely unlikely - and “special statements demands special proofs”. It is highly likely this just is a story made up or “borrowed” from f. ex. folklore to give the teachings of Muhammad credence.
To go all the way to Mecca was too forbidding for a man with large flocks of animal – and there never was a reason to go there for Abraham. On the contrary: Little food for his animals, no water in Mecca before the Zamzam was found later (?) – and Ishmael living “near the border of Egypt”. He never was in Mecca and consequently never built the Kabah – the big temple that he anyhow did not have the know-how to build, and worse; could not use, because he lived the better part of 1000 km away.
061 2/127b: “And remember Abraham and Ishmael raised the foundations of the House (Kabah*)”. See 2/127.
062 2/129: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00h 2/130: “- - - the religion of Abraham (= Islam*) - - -.” The Quran often claims that Islam = the religion of Abraham. But it always was and only is a claim – no proof, no documentation - not even a try to explain, except the undocumented and not proved claim that everyone that say something else are lying, and that other scriptures that science deems more reliable (not proven 100%, but far more likely to be true) are falsifications, even though science has shown that they are not falsified – may be are not everything true in the Bible, too, but science has clearly shown it is not falsified. (To prove it 100.0% of course is impossible – there always will be theoretical or made up possibilities. But it is proved at least 99.5% - far beyond any judicial definition of the word - and if Islam claims something else, they will have to produce proofs, not only claims that are not even based on a likely theory about how all the thousands of different manuscript shall have had so many chapters and verses falsified in exactly the same way – spread over all the world one knew at that time. All that Islam offers, is a stubborn claim – not even a theory about how it should be possible to falsify everything, or about why all the thousands of old manuscripts that science knows, show it is not falsified. For comparison: Islam's claims about falsifications of the Bible are not proved even 0,5%. They only are claims.
No proof. No documentation even though there exist thousands of documents. Only a stubborn claim based on nothing but a book with lots of mistakes dictated by a man with questionable moral and a lust for power to say the least of it.
063 2/131: “Lord of the Worlds”. The Quran tells about 7 (flat) worlds (65/12) – one above the other according to Hadith. Wrong (One small detail: In Abdullah Yusuf Ali (the same Yusuf Ali, but revised after his death): “The Meaning of the Holy Quran”, 11. edition, the word is changed from “the Worlds” to “the Universe” – one my guess why.
064 2/135: “- - - the Religion of Abraham, the True (religion*) - - -“. According to the Quran, Abraham was a Muslim. But looking at all the other mistakes and twisted logic and stories in the Quran – Islam will have to produce real proofs for that that was true. Also see 2/130 above.
065 2/136a: “- - - the revelations (the Quran*) given to us (Muhammad/Muslims*)”. Were they really given? – and were they really revelations? Under no circumstances did such revelations/the Quran come from an omniscient god – not that full of mistakes, etc.
*66 2/136b: “We (Allah*) make no difference between one or another of them (prophets*) - - -“. There is one distinction at least Yahweh makes: Between real and false prophets. The criterion for being a real prophet, is that you make prophesies – and that the prophesies come true. If not he is a false prophet (5. Mos. 18/21). Muhammad made during all his life not one real prophesy. (There were a few sayings that were remembered because they happened to become true – the others were forgotten like normal in such cases – but no real prophesies. He never – no place in the Quran and hardly in all the Hadiths – even claimed to have the gift of making prophesies). Was he then really a prophet – or did he simply “borrow” an impressive title? He simply was not a prophet. A messenger for someone or something perhaps – or an apostle, but no prophet. But if either the Quran or the Bible or both speak the truth concerning this, Jesus clearly was. The Quran, though, reduces Jesus as much as possible, and simply skips the question of Muhammad’s right to the title – as so often the book treats things for a fact without the slightest proof or documentation.
067 2/136b: “We (Allah*) make no difference between one or another of them (prophets*) - - -“. Wrong. The Quran makes a great difference between Muhammad – even though he was no real prophet, as he did not have the gift of being able to make prophesies – and all other prophets. If Allah made no difference between them, then why is there so big difference in the Quran?
00i 2/137: “- - - (Muslims are*) on the right path - - -“. Can a “path” based on a book full of mistakes and dictated by a man of very doubtful moral, really be said to be “the right path”?
068 2/139: “- - - (Allah*) is our (Muslims’*) Lord and your (non-Muslim’s*) Lord - - -“. As this claim only is based on other, not proven claims, and especially as there exists other possibilities where at least some are based on stronger traditions, this is an invalid statement, unless it is proved.
00j 2/140: “- - - do ye know better than Allah?” (- about the old patriarchs, etc. of Israel.)
069 2/144a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
*070 2/144b: “The people of the Book (= Jews, Christians and Sabeans*) know very well that that (the reason for changing the kiblah = direction of praying*) is the truth from their Lord”.
071 2/145: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
*072 2/145+146: “If thou, after the knowledge (of the new qiblah = what direction to face when you are praying*), wert to follow their (the People of the Book‘s*) (vain) desire - then wert thou indeed (clearly) in the wrong. The People of the Book know this as they know their own sons.” But it is most obvious that this is not true - neither Jews nor Christians know this - - - and especially not Christians, who have no qiblah (churches mostly make their congregation face east, but there is no qiblah).
073 2/146: “- - - but some of them (Jews, Christians*) conceals the truth (the teachings of the Quran*) - - -“. With that many mistaken facts and that much wrong logic, it at best is partly the truth. See 40/75.
074 *2/146: “- - - the truth (the teachings of the Quran*) which they (Jews, Christians*) themselves know.” There are so many and so fundamental differences between the Quran and the Bible – especially the NT – that the only thing that is possible to know, is that something is very wrong in Islamic claims like this (as normal; a not proved claim).
075 2/147a: ”The Truth - - -”, see 40/75.
076 2/147b: “The Truth is from thy (people’s*) Lord (Allah*) - - -”. With so many mistakes in the Quran, it is not from a god, as gods do not make mistakes.
077 2/147c: “The Truth (the Quran*) is from thy (people’s*) Lord, so be not at all in doubt”. With that many mistakes and that much wrong logic, etc., there is every reason for doubt.
00k 2/149: “- - - that (the new qiblah) is indeed the truth from thy Lord”. With so many mistakes in the Quran, it is an open question if this is the truth or not. It is worth mentioning that Muslims states that the direction towards Kabah was Abraham’s kiblah. We have been unable to find out why they say so - there is no reliable source telling that Abraham even had a kiblah, not to mention that it in case was direction Mecca, a place he hardly had ever heard about (it was only during the last few generations before Muhammad that Mecca had grown to a reasonable wealthy town of some size).
078 2/159: “- - - clear (Signs) - - -.” See 2/99a and 2/99b.
079 2/160: “Except those who repent and make amends and openly declare (the Truth)”. With so many mistakes in the Quran, the book at the very best is partly true. See 40/75.
080 2/164a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
*081 2/164b: “- - - the rain which Allah sends down from the skies and the life which He gives to an earth which is dead”. Any god had known it was alive with roots or seeds, not dead - it only looked so.
082 2/164c: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
083 2/173: “He (Allah*) hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the meat of swine, and that on which another name hath been invoked besides that of Allah”. Wrong. You also are forbidden to eat meat from animals you kill by strangulation, or are gored to death, and Hadiths – f. ex. Al-Bukhari - very clearly prohibits you to eat meat from donkey.
084 2/176a: “- - - Allah sent down the Book”. With so many mistaken facts, it is impossible that the Quran is sent down by a god.
085 2/176b: “- - - Allah sent down the Book (the Quran*) in truth”. With that many mistakes and other dubious arguments, it at best is partly true.
086 2/177: “- - - to believe in Allah and the last day, and the Angles, and the Book, and the Messengers - - -“. Muhammad Ali says this is like accepting the “heavenly revelations” as facts – clearly Islam’s meaning also today is, even though absolutely nothing is proved or documented, it all rests well on blind belief in what a morally very suspect and perhaps sick (TLE?) person once told.
087 2/185: “- - - clear (Signs) - - -“. There exist no clear sign (proof for Allah or Muhammad) in all the Quran – see 2/99.
088 2/187: “- - - Allah makes clear His Signs to men - - -“. There exists no clear sign (proof for Allah or Muhammad) in all the Quran – see 2/99.
*089 2/189: “They (the new moons*) are but signs to mark fixed periods of time in (the affairs of) men, - - -”. Wrong - the new moons simply is a natural phenomenon. Man often uses to calculate time but it is not made for that purpose. If Islam insists on that, they will have to prove it.
090 2/213a: “Mankind was one single nation - - -.” Mankind never was a single nation. Some 160ooo-200ooo years ago PERHAPS one tribe, but never one nation - and absolutely not within these last few millennia that is covered by the Quran.
091 2/213b: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. Wrong. See 2/97c and 61/13.
092 2/213c: “He (Allah*) sent the Book (the Quran*) - - -”. An omniscient god did not send a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, and invalid proofs, etc.
093 2/213d: “He (Allah*) sent the Book in truth, - - -”. With so many mistaken facts at best it is only partly the truth. See 40/75.
094 2/213e: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. There are no clear signs – proofs for Allah or Muhammad - in all the Quran. See 2/99.
095 2/213f: “Allah by His Grace guided the believers (by means of the Quran*) - - -“. A book with that many mistakes and invalid proofs, etc. is no guidance.
096 2/213g: “Allah by his Grace guided the believers to the Truth, - - -”. Allah’s presumed book containing so many mistakes, is not the truth. At best the book is partly true.
097 2/219: “Thus does Allah make clear to you His Signs - - -“. There is not one clear sign – proof for Allah or Muhammad – in all the Quran. See 2/99.
098 2/221: “But Allah - - - makes his Signs clear to mankind - - -“. There is not one clear sign – proof for Allah of Muhammad – in all the Quran, as it nowhere is proved that Allah makes the signs. See 2/99.
099 2/231a: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
100 2/231b: “- - - the fact that He (Allah) sent down to you the Book - - -”. Is it a fact that a god has sent down a book with so many mistaken facts? Impossible.
*101 2/231c: “- - - the Book of Wisdom, - - -”. A book with so many mistaken facts is no book of wisdom. At best partly a book of wisdom. (But which parts are wisdom and which not?)
102 2/242: “Thus doet Allah make clear His Signs for you - - -“. There is not one single clear sign – proof for Allah or Muhammad – in the entire Quran. See 2/99.
00m 2/247a: “Allah hath appointed Talut (Saul*) king over you (Jews around 1100 - 1000 BC*)”. Most likely it was Yahweh (God) that did so, or what? Allah and Yahweh is not the same god no matter what Islam wants – the fundamental differences are too big and too many. Not unless the god is mentally ill – if he exists.
00n 2/247b: “- - - there shall come to you (the Jews) the Ark of Covenant”. Well, according to the Bible the Ark of Covenant did not come to the Jews – they built it themselves in accordance with a description they got from Yahweh. That was done around 1330 BC under Moses.
103 2/248a: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00o 2/248b: “- - - there shall come to you the Ark of the Covenant - - - carried by angles - - -”. This needs strong proof, especially since the Bible has a much more likely explanation. See 2/247b above.
104 2/248c: “- - - a Symbol (= Sign*) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
105 2/252: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
106 2/255: “- - - all the things in the heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
*107 2/253a: “- - - We (Allah*) gave Clear (Signs) - - -.” There does not exist one single clear sign (in Quran-speak = proof) for neither the Quran, nor for Allah, nor for Muhammad’s connection to a god in all the Quran – only loose claims and demands for blind belief.
108 2/225b: “- - - after Clear (Signs) had come to them - - -.” Wrong. See 2/253a just above.
109 2/255: “- - - over the heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
***110 2/256: “- - - no compulsion in religion - - -“. This “flagship” for “proving” the peaceful Islam, disused daily by most Muslims and very frequently by Islam itself, is very wrong, because it is abrogated (made invalid) by at least these (ca. 30 all together) from the more bloody and inhuman later Medina surahs: 2/191 – 2/193 – 3/28 – 3/85 – 4/91 - 5/33 – 5/72 – 5/73 - 8/12 – 8/38-39 – 8/39 - 8/60 – 9/3 - 9/5 - 9/14 – 9/23 – 9/29 – 9/33 - 9/73 – 9/123 – 14/7 – 25/36 - 25/52 – 33/61 – 33/73 – 35/36 - 47/4 – 66/9 (as for 5/33: Remember that all the wars and raids Muhammad fought, were wars of aggression, even if he called it jihad – even Badr, Uhud and the Trench (Medina) were battles of defence in a war of aggression started and kept alive by Muhammad’s raids. Non-Muslims should not defend themselves and their belongings, according to 5/33).
In addition to this there are other kinds of compulsion than the sword – economy, brutal taxes, social stigma, “Berufsverbot” (good jobs prohibited), physical insecurity, etc. And all of them were backed by the sword – “conform and obey and pay or else - - -“!!
It must be added that some Muslims say this nonsense in good faith. But not one single Muslim educated in his religion, does not know he is lying each time he says that there is no compulsion in religion under Islam – but then defending and promoting Islam are two of the cases where Al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), are not only lawful, but compulsory in Islam, if it is necessary to use it. (A small PS: One or two of the verses abrogating 2/256 may or may not be a little older than 2/256 itself, but there once was a long debate in Islam if an older verse could abrogate a younger, and the conclusion was that that was possible).
Beisdes Muslims normally misquote the verse, and tell you it says: "There is no compulsion in religion". What it really says is: "Let there be no compulsion in religion" - a wish or a demand, not a fulfilled fact.
If this verse had not been abrogated, it had been “Glad Tidings”. Yes, even if Muslims had been honest and told the verse is abrogated by at least some 30 harsh later verses it had helped – at least it had helped the moral standard of Muslims to be that honest.
111 2/259: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
112 2/266: “Thus doth Allah make clear to you (people*) (his) Signs”. There are no clear signs for Allah or Muhammad in the Quran – not one. See 2/99.
113 2/284: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
114 2/286: “(Pray:) ‘Our Lord! - - -‘“. The word (Pray:) does not exist in the original Arab text – Yusuf Ali has added it to “camouflage” the fact that this is Muhammad praying to Allah. How is it possible to explain that Muhammad is praying to Allah in a book made by Allah or may be never made, but existed since eternity?
There are a few more places where it clearly is not Allah who is speaking. See 6/114a.
Surah 2: At least 114 mistakes + at least 15 likely mistakes.
001 3/3a: “It is He (Allah*) Who sent down to thee (Muhammad*) (the Quran*) - - -”. A book with that many mistakes, etc. is not sent down by an omniscient god.
002 3/3b: “It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth - - -”. It at best is partly the truth. See 13/1, 41/12 and especially 40/75.
**003 3/3c: “- - - the Book, confirming what went before it; (the Torah and the Bible*) - - -”. There are so many fundamental differences between the Quran and the Torah/Bible (especially NT), that the Quran definitely is no conformation of any of the two others (see 2/89). The Quran and Islam tell that it is because those books are falsified, but for 1400 years no Muslim has ever offered proofs for that - only statements - and today it is proved by science that those statements are wrong. Acrually it also is proved by Islam: If there had existed any proof for falsification, Islam had screamed about it at once - but the only thing they serve, is claims.
Never any proof for that the Quran - or Muhammad - really was from a god. Never.
004 3/4a: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00a 3/4b: “The Message of the Quran” here tells that the sign here refers to the Gospel (or Evangelion – both words mean “glad tidings”. “The Message of the Quran” in English pretends that “Evangelion” is something special, but it simply is Greek for the same meaning. In Swedish (and some other languages) – this kind of small dishonesty that you meet too often in Islamic religious literature, is not possible in just this case, as they do not use the word “Gospel” – they use the word “Evangelium”) that Jesus got. Our remark about that simply is that absolutely nowhere there is found a trace of an Evangelion/Gospel that existed at the time of Jesus (science say there may have been one older than the existing ones, but this one in case also had to be written after Jesus’ death, as an Evangelion – Gospel in English – is the story about Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and could not be written until after this had happened. The absolute only place you find this claim – and only as a not documented claim – is in the Quran (and later Islamic relevant (?) literature built on or around the Quran). A book with lots and lots of mistakes, told by a man with a very doubtful moral who on top of all used the stories as his platform of power – and a book made 600 – 650 years later using mainlyreligious legends, etc. as sources, Islam will have to produce solid evidences to make this claim believable – not necessarily true, bur at least believable.
005 3/5: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
006 3/7a: “He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: - - -”. There are too many mistakes in the Quran - it cannot possibly be sent down by a god, not to mention by an omniscient god.
**007 3/7b: “- - - the whole of it (the Quran*) is sent down from our Lord: - - - “. See 2/231 and 3/7a.
We also want to add a little more from this verse, as the addition is essential in some of all the places Islam/Muslims try to “explain” away statements, etc., that obviously are not true, by saying they are allegories:
***00b 3/7c “It is He (Allah*) Who has sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*): in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) (= to be read literally*); they (the verses to be read literally*) are the foundation of the Book (the Quran*): others are allegorical (there are a number of allegorical or similar verses in the Quran - they either are easy to see are allegorical, or the meaning is explained, or both*). But those in whose hearts is perversity (,*) follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking disorder, for its hidden meaning (= only bad persons seek the hidden meanings - also from the allegories*), but no one knows the hidden meanings except Allah (= the possibly hidden meanings are not for humans*)”.
008 3/9: “- - - a Day about which there is no doubt - - -“. Wrong. Once the end of the world will come. But if it will happen like told in the Quran, well, there is a good reason for doubt about, as so much more is wrong in that book.
009 3/11: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
010 3/13: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
011 3/15: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. Wrong. See 2/97c above.
*012 3/18: “- - - that is the witness of Allah - - -.” The problem is that there exists not one single witness from Allah – no miracle that could have been a witness, and nothing else. Only the words of a very doubtful man written in a book with very many errors, contradictions, etc. Muslims her often talk about “signs” from the nature, but the nature is not a proof for Allah until it first is proved that it is created by a god, and then is proved that that god is Allah – words are very cheap. This claim is wrong until Islam proves that Allah really made it – and proves, not only claims like Muslims nearly always do.
013 3/19: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
014 3/21: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
**015 3/24: “- - - their (Jews, Christians*) forgeries (of the Bible*) - - -“. The Quran, Muhammad, Islam and most Muslims claim that the Bible is falsified – claim, but NEVER document or in other ways prove it. Not only claim it is falsified, but that it is falsified on purpose. This in spite of the fact that science long since has proved it is not falsified - one knows literally thousands of relevant old papers and scraps of paper (some 13000 older than 610 AD + some 32000 relevant references to the Bible), which documents it has not been falsified – and with royal disregard for the fact that as the Bible was spread over enormous distances, here, there and everywhere. It was physically impossible to co-ordinate the falsification of each and every copy all over so that all the falsifications were identical, not to mention that all similar points and all references to all these in other papers also had to be falsified correspondingly.
***Demand proofs next time a Muslim tells you this. His game is to throw not documented claims around,and demand proofs from you for the opposite – which can be difficult if you do not have enough knowledge. But it his duty to prove his claims – not yours to disapprove them. NB: They do not have such proofs – if they had had only a feeble one, be sure you and the rest of the world had heard about it by some ones using big letters (actually the lack of documentation from Islam is the best of proofs for that the claim is something made up. And as actually; to throw loose claims and statements around, pretending that they are facts, are typical for Muslims and Islam in religious debates not to mention in religious propaganda).
But to claim that the Bible was falsified, was the only way out for Muhammad – and it still is the only way out for Islam. If they admit that the Bible is not falsified each and every place the Quran “collides” with it, that means to admit that Islam is a made up religion – which is too difficult for the believers, and too expensive for the leaders.
We may add that it is quite normal for fringe sects – which Islam once was – to claim that the mother religion(s) is wrong and they themselves are the only ones that are right. To be believed on this point by us, Islam will have to produce real proofs, not only cheap and loose words to back up their claim. As there exist so many old papers, proving it should be very easy - - - if it were true.
016 3/25: “- - - a Day about which there is no doubt - - -“. Wrong. See 3/9 above.
017 3/27: “Thou (Allah*) causest the Night to gain on the Day, and Thou causest the day to gain on the Night - - -“. Night and day is a natural result of the Earth spinning in the light from the sun. If Islam claims what the Quran says above, they will have to prove it.
017 3/29: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
*018 3/35: ”Imran’s wife said”. The Quran here is talking about the mother of Mary (see also 3/36 in the Quran: “I have named her Mary”). But Imran was the father of Aaron, Moses and Miriam, who lived some 1200 years earlier! Muhammad did not know the Bible very well, and it is clear that he thought Mary was the sister of Aaron and Moses. In 19/28 this is directly said, when talking about Mary: “O sister of Aaron”. It is likely that the reason for this mistake is that in Arab Mary and Miriam (the older sister of Moses and Aaron) are written the same way: Maryam. With his limited knowledge of the Bible he believed it was the same woman. Any god had known better. We may add that some Muslims say it is not the same Imran, but scientists agree on that Muhammad meant the same man - the Imran that was chosen by Allah like Adam, Noah and Abraham (see 3/33 in the Quran) - the father of Aaron, Moses - - - and Maryam/Miriam/Mary. That Muhammad really was wrong here, and thought Mary was the sister of Aaron and Moses, is documented by the fact that according to Hadith (the other Muslim source of information about their religion and about Muhammad) Muhammad was corrected, and he tried to find explanations to repair the mistake (without success). He also did not add information showing that he and Allah for some reason was right in his mistaken statement all the same.
You will also meet Muslims telling that the Quran does not mean that Mary really was the sister of Aaron (they say it was meant figuratively – the normal way out for Muslims, when things are difficult to explain), and that the book does not mean that she was the daughter of Imran - only a descendant of him. Islam should after so many hundreds of years have found better “explanations” - “explanations” that on top of all is said to be contradicted by the fact that already Mohammad himself tried to correct the mistake, but without success as mentioned. But there is no other explanation they can try to use. Also see 19/28.
**** There also is another aspect of all the points which are wrong or helplessly expressed or something - may be unbelievable some 3000 places - very roughly one in every second verse on average (there is said to be 6247 verses). Who is willing to believe that an omniscient and intelligent god is so helpless expressing himself in a book where he tells he uses a language simple to understand, and so uneducated that he uses hundreds of mistaken facts, so that mere humans time and again and again and again have to step in and explain or "explain" what he "really means"? - not to mention "explain" or explain away mistakes? It takes a lot of naivity, brainwashing and plain old blindness and lack of moran curage not to at least ask questions. You believe just because your grandmother told you so, and it is difficult to question your old beliefs and the basis of your "facts of life"?
019 3/37: “Every time he (Zakariyya*) entered (her) chamber to see her, he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: ‘O Mary! Whence (comes) this to you?’ She said: “From Allah: for Allah provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure’ “. This means that she by a miracle got her food from the god. This is a made up fairy tale. There is not one single chance that a miracle like this had been omitted from the NT - this even more so if Islam had been right in their statements that Christians (and Jews) had falsified the Bible and made Jesus "bigger" - though how do you make Jews falsify their copies of scriptures to make Jesus "bigger"? (Muhammad was not well versed in the Bible, and frequently made mistakes when he referred to it or took stories from it. He always explained such mistakes with that he was right, and that the unholy Jews and Christians had falsified the Bible. Actually just this story is one the many the Quran has not “borrowed” from the Bible at all, but from one of the made up religious legends that flourished at that time. These mistakes were the reason why the Jews did not accept him when he came to Yathrib/Medina - the Jews said his teachings were wrong and that he consequently was a false prophet. (Muslims have "a tendency" not to mention this fact, but to instead tell a, to Muhammad, more flattering story: He was not accepted because the Jews were angry because Allah had called a non-Jew for a prophet.))
But if Christians had falsified the Bible, their main object would have been to strengthen Jesus’ position and his connections to Yahweh - the Jewish and Christian god. There is no chance at all that they had omitted a wonder connected to his mother, telling about a direct connection between Yahweh and her. (That she served in the Temple, which also is told in the Quran, also is new to the Bible – and had never been omitted there if it was true).
It also tells something that when Muhammad differs from the Bible, his/the Quran’s stories often correspond with proven untrue religious fables and legends (often based on apocryphal scriptures – and often Gnostic). This tells it is not the Bible that is wrong, but that the Quran may have used fairy tales as sources. Would a god need fairy tales as sources?
020 3/41a: “- - -a Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
021 3/41b: “- - -Thy Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
*022 3/45: “- - - his name will be Christ Jesus - - - “. His name was only Jesus. The word Christ was not even a name, but a title of honour, and it only emerged years after his death - originally in what is now Turkey. But Muhammad did not know the Bible well. (Christ in Greek means the same as Messiah in Hebrew – the anointed one. Because of this some editions of the Bible use Christ instead of Messiah in NT, but the name - or title really - Christ in reality did not exist connected to Jesus, until well after his death).
**023 3/48: “And Allah will teach him (the child Jesus*) - - - the Gospel”. One thing is that the word “Gospel” is in singular - there are 4 Gospels. It is not uncommon to use “Gospel” in singular, but it seems that Muhammad did not know there were more than one. But the real screamer is that the Gospels did not exist at that time - could not exist, as they are the story of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. The oldest one is written some 25 years after his death (or may be a little earlier, according to new science - source: New Scientist). Show us one single god that did not know that. But as said before: Muhammad did not know the Bible well. Also see 3/3.
We may add that many a Muslim will tell you that the Quran is not talking about the 4 known Gospels, but about an older one they claim has disappeared. And they may be partly right on one point - it may be that once there was another and older Gospel, (though not so old that Jesus could read it, neither as a child, nor as an adult). 3 of the Gospels are so similar, that it is clear there is a connection, and one of the possible explanations is that they all took material from an older Gospel. But strangely Muslims never mention the other possible explanation: That the two youngest simply took material from the oldest of the 3. And as strangely the Imams never tell their congregation what a Gospel really is. For the for Muslims damaging points are:
(We may add that “Gospel” means “good news” or “glad news” or “glad tidings”. You meet the word used like that in some Bibles and other literature, but then it normally is written “gospel” not “Gospel”.)
*024 3/49: “I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah’s leave”. Also this wonder had never been omitted from NT if it had been true - see 3/37. But actually it is taken from the made up legends in one of the “fairy tale” Child Gospels (actually it came from Thomas Child Gospel - also called “The Thomas‘ Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ“- an apocryphal one from 2. century ). A god had known the Child Gospels were made up. Besides: What does it tell the world that the Quran uses a made up story as an indirect proof for Allah? And what does it tell about the reliability of Muhammad’s many statements when there is divergence between the Bible and the Quran, that the reason is that the Bible is falsified, when it is clear that the reason is that the Quran often is referring to fairy tales?
**025 3/51: (Jesus said*): “It is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him”. This must be written/told by someone with no knowledge of Israel at the time of Jesus. It was one of the periods when the Jewish religion was strong and the religious establishment powerful. Further the name of the (Muslim) god was not Allah until after Muhammad changed his name slightly - it was al-Lah (which means “the god” - not “god”, but “the god”. Muslim missionaries in the west, today often use the word God instead of Allah, because then a number of the differences between Yahweh (our god) and Allah are more difficult to see. They say that Allah means God, but strictly speaking “al-Lah” = “the god“). The Jews of that time were a travelling people, and they knew Arabia and the polytheistic religion there.
The statement is made up by someone not knowing the religious and political situation in Israel around 30 AD (the purpose for making it up is very obvious).
026 3/52a: “(Jesus*) said: ‘Who will be the helpers to (the work) of Allah?” See 3/51.
027 3/52b: “Said the Disciples (of Jesus*): ‘We are Allah’s helpers:” See 3/51.
028 3/52c: Said the disciples: “- - - we believe in Allah, - - -”. See 3/51.
*029 3/52d: Said the disciples: “- - - and thou (Jesus*) bear witness that we are Muslims”. See 3/51. Besides the word hardly had a meaning 600 years before Muhammad.
030 3/58: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00c 3/59: “The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam - - -”. That is to say in “Quran-speak”: He was a prophet, but but for that an ordinary human. Well, Jesus called God/Yahweh “father”, which Adam could not. And according to science, Adam never existed.
*031 3/59: “He (Allah*) created him (Adam*) from dust, - - -”. The Quran tells about many ways man was created - 13 different if you are strict, 5 - 7 if you are less strict. Only 1 can be true, as man (Adam) was created only once. Actually all of them are wrong. Some Muslims take pride in that archaeologists has found that the human race has passed through so-called bottlenecks, and that all may have one “mother” in common - the archaeological Eve - and one common “father” - the less known archaeological Adam. “Hip, Hurray! Science has proved the Adam and his wife in the Quran!!” What not a single of them has ever mentioned as far as we have heard, is the fact that this “Eve” lived some 160ooo to 200ooo years ago in Africa, whereas the corresponding “Adam” lived much later - may be as late as 60ooo - 70ooo (64ooo?) years ago and in Asia. Some marriage!!! (And actually the Adam from the Bible and the Quran most likely never existed - man developed from a primate, he was not created into sudden existence). See also 6/2.
032 3/60: “The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; - - -”. With so many mistaken facts that you find in that book, it can at most be partly true, if this refers to the presumed truths in the Quran. Also see 40/75.
033 3/61: “- - - now after (full) knowledge hath come to thee - - -”. With so many mistakes in the Quran, it is at best partly knowledge.
*034 3/64: “- - - that we (Muslims and Jews/Christians*) worship none but Allah (= Yahweh and Allah is claimed to be the same god*)”. This is not possible as the fundamental differences between the Quran and the Bible/NT are too big and too many – not unless the god is schizophrenic. Mainly only Muslims say this – and they will have to bring strong proofs.
00d 3/67: “Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian - - -“. He definitely was no Christian, as he lived – if he ever lived - some 1800 – 2000 years too early. But it may be correct to call the forefather of all Jews a Jew. (We know the word did not exist at that time, but it is normal to use the word also for the people who later got the name Jews. The word "Jew" is made from "Judah" - the name of one of the sons of the Jewish patriarch Jacob - grandson of Abraham.)
00e 3/68: “Without doubt, among men, the nearest of kin to Abraham, are those who follow him - - -“.
There is much reason for doubt.
035 3/70: “Why do ye (the Jews*) reject the Signs of Allah, of which ye are (yourselves) witnesses?” The word “Sign” may here refer to these statements:
See the chapters “Muhammad in the Bible?” and “Falsified Bible?”
*Islam only has produced claims and twisted logic for this – well, claim. They will have to produce documentation or proofs if they want to be believed by others than the brainwashed and the naïve.
036 3/71: “- - - conceal the Truth (of what the Quran tells*) - - -”. With so many mistakes, the Quran at best is only partly true. Also see “Muhammad in the Bible?”
037 3/71a: “Why do you clothe the truth with falsehood (= falsify the Bible, the Torah, and the other Jewish scriptures - this is strongly stated in the Quran (if it is not true, then the Quran is a falsified book*)*), and conceal the Truth, - - -?” Always when there was a discrepancy between the Quran and the Bible, Muhammad said it was he who was right and the Jews and the Christians who had falsified the Bible (even in cases where it is clear the story in the Quran corresponds to a made up legend known in Arabia at that time) - a most convenient explanation for a man that knew little about the Bible. But does the Quran represent the truth? - with that many obvious mistakes, etc., it at most can be partly true.
038 3/71b: “- - - conceal the Truth (of what the Quran tells*) - - -”. With so many mistakes, the Quran at best is only partly true. Also see “Muhammad in the Bible?” and 3/71a just above.
039. 3/75: “But they (Jews and Christians*) tell a lie against Allah (= they have falsified the Bible*), and well they know it.” Wrong. See 2/75 above.
**040 3/78: “(Many Jews and Christians*) distort the Book (the Bible) - - -“. This an unproven claim without which Islam is dead. But the fact is that in 1400 years Islam have been unable to produce only claims and words – both of which are very cheap – whereas science has some 13000 relevant old papers and fragments (of them some 300 from the 4 Gospels) from all over the then known world, plus some 32000 relevant quotations from the Bible in other manuscripts, which document that the Bible is not distorted. (And you bet: If Islam had found a single real proof for their claim, they had screamed about it). This actually is the best of all proofs for that no proofs exist. Also see “Muhammad in the Bible”, and “Falsified Bible?”
*041 3/83a: “- - - all creatures (= angels, jinns, man and animals*) in the heavens and on the earth have, willing or unwilling (what about 2/256: “- no compulsion in religion –“?*) bowed to His (Allah’s*) will (accepted Islam)”. Muslims will have to produce very strong proofs to make us believe that everything, included snails and flatworms and mosquitoes pray to Allah.
042 3/83b: “- - - heavens - - -“. See 2/22a.
*043 3/84: “- - - in (the Books) given to Moses”. Wrong. Moses (if he existed) lived 1300-1200 BC (if the exodus from Egypt ever happened, it took place ca. 1235 BC - during the reign of pharaoh Ramses II according to science). These 5 books (the Torah) were written not earlier than ca. 800 BC, and may be as late as 500 BC, but named after Moses. Moses was never given those books (though he was oraly given the law, which he himself wrote down later, according to the Bible – the laws later became part of “The Book of Moses” some hundred years later) - but this Muhammad did not know - - - whereas a god had known it. See 2/53.
044 3/75: “But they (Jews/Christians*) tell a lie against Allah (= they have falsified the Bible)”. Wrong. See 3/24 above.
045 3/78: “- - - distort the Book (= falsify the Bible*) - - -.” Wrong. See 3/24 above.
046 3/86: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. See 2/99.
*047 3/96: “The first House (= Kabah*) (of worship) appointed for man was that at Bakkah (= Mecca*)”. Wrong. Even if we should accept that Abraham “made the foundations” of the Kabah in Mecca, he lived (if he is not fiction) around 2000-1800 BC. At that time the first temples, etc. in f. ex. Egypt and Mesopotamia were old. Today it is possible to find the real age of many things. It is symptomatic that as far as we know, Islam has not tried to see if it is possible to find the real age of the oldest parts of the Kabah. Wagging tongues insinuates that may be the reason is that they are afraid it is younger than 3800 years. - what if it turns out it is built around 100 BC - or AD - f. ex? Islam also have one problem concerning measuring the age of the Kabah: They will have to use qualified western experts. If they use Muslim experts - who may be well qualified to do it - and find that it f. ex. is 5630 years old, not one single soul will believe them uncondotianally, because of "al-Taqiyya" - the lawful lie - that Muslims not only are permitted to use, but are obliged to use if necessary, when it comes to promoting or defending Islam. (And non-Muslims are not permitted to visit Mecca.) We may also add that it is further said that Abraham built on the even older ruins of a temple made by Adam - of course Adam like Abraham went all the way to the desert proto-Mecca and built a big temple he never could visit from his home a thousand kilometres off (Adam - and his Paradise - real of fiction, mostly are believed to have been placed somewhere in the rich wetlands in what is now South Iraq), but destroyed at the time of Noah - but as often before Muslims only tell, seldom prove, so believe it who wants.
(We may ad that some Muslims have corrected this verse to that the Quran is talking about the first house of worship for a monotheistic god, but that is not what the Quran says. Besides: If the Quran or the Hadiths is correct and there have been prophets to all times and every people – 124ooo the Hadith says – Islam will have a though time to prove that not one single all those prophets or their followers in the very early time before Abraham, have ever built even a small house for worship.” Also see 2/127.
048 3/97a: “- - - Signs manifest - - -“. See 2/99.
049 3/97b: “In it (Kabah in Mecca*) are Signs manifest; (for example), the Station of Abraham - - -“. For one thing Abraham never was in Mecca (see 2/127) and never built Kabah or its foundations. And if he had ever been there and built it: There is a stone there, with a mark in it. Islam calls it the Station of Abraham and is said to tell that the mark is from Abraham’s feet when he was building the Kabah. Which worker building a house has ever in all the history and far before, been standing so long on the same hard natural stone, that his feet made a mark in that stone lasting for millennia?
This is the kind of sure proofs the Quran tells about and some of the Muslims even believe in.
050 3/98a: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
051 3/98b: “(Jews and Christians*) ye were yourselves witnesses (to Allah’s covenant)”. Wrong. They were witnesses to Yahweh’s covenant(s). Allah is not the same god as Yahweh, unless the god is seriously schizophrenic, as the teachings fundamentally are too different. If Islam still insists on the opposite, they will have to bring proofs, not only the old and still not documented loose claims.
00f 3/101: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
052 3/103: “Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear - - -“. There is not one single real sign/proof not to mention clear sign or proof for neither Allah nor Muhammad in the Quran – see 2/99.
053 3/105: “- - - clear Sign - - -“. See 3/103 just above and 2/99.
054 3/108: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
055 3/109: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – see 2/22a.
056 3/112: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
057 3/113: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
058 3/118: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
059 3/128: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – there are no 7 heavens. See 2/22a.
060 3/132: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – see 2/22a.
*00g 3/137a: “- - - travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected the truth”. In Arabia there were scattered old ruins. Muhammad told they were all remnants after peoples Allah had punished for their sins. There are more likely explanations.
061 3/137b: “- - - those who rejected the Truth”. With that many mistaken facts in the Quran, it at best tells partly the truth.
**062 3/154a: “Even if you had remained in your homes (instead of taking part in the battle of Uhud, where many were killed), those for whom the death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death (= they had died anyhow*)”. Here we have the predestination. You can as well do battle, because Allah has decided long time ago (5 months before you were born according to Hadith) when you are to die. If your time is up, you will die no matter, even if you are lying in your bed. That means that to do battle is not dangerous, but you can win a lot of wealth - and slaves - and if you die in battle, you are sure to go to Paradise with its luxury life and willing houries (in addition to your wives), which you are not sure of if you die at home. The only intelligent thing to do is to fight for your prophet - or his successors. "The religion of Peace"? - or a religion of war?
Today it is easy to prove by statistics that it is very wrong - but Muhammad did not know about statistics (and a god had not even needed statistics to know it was stupidity). On the other hand this claim is so contra all logic, that this is one of the points where Muhammad knew he was lying - he was too intellighet to believe in this. Actually Islam today back-pedals very much concerning predestination telling f. ex. that the Quran does not mean real predestination (but not explaining what they claim it means). But in some cases the book is so clear, that it is impossible to explain it away.) f. ex. many places connected to statements that when your time is out, you will die anyhow, and therefore you can as well go to war. See f. ex. 3/154b below).
**063 3/154b: “Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death”. This is one of the arguments Muhammad used to incite to battle; predestination. Today it as said is very easy to prove by means of statistics that it is utterly wrong - it is far less likely to die in your home, compared to spending the same time in a battle. (But Muhammad needed - or at least wanted - warriors, even if he had to know he was lying.)
064 3/161a: “- - - prophet - - -“. But Muhammad was not really a prophet – he just “borrowed” the impressing title: He did not have the ability to make prophesies – he did not even pretend or claim he had it. Even Islam admits this indirectly: Prophesies is a special kind of miracles, and Islam says that the only miracle connected to Muhammad, is the making of the Quran.
00h 3/16b1: “No prophet could (ever) be false to his trust.” Some of Mohammad’s highwaymen (this was in 625 AD when the Muslims lived from stealing/robbing and extortion) were dissatisfied and told Mohammad cheated when splitting the spoils. Then this verse arrived very conveniently from the veneered Mother Book in Heaven written by Allah or existed since eternity. Islam says it proved Mohammad did not cheat. That may be correct if Allah made the Quran, but not if Mohammad or someone else did so.
**There also is another and much more serious fact here: Through the times most – not to say (nearly?) all – self-proclaimed prophets have been false prophets. Most of the false prophets have been (and are) men, and in religion they have found a way to money, women, esteem, and power – the 4 normal reasons for impostors. Some are mentally special or ill – Muhammad is among those if he had TLE (see the chapter “What is TLE – Temporal Lobe Epilepsy”). Some really believe they are prophets, others just are cheats – if Muhammad had TLE, he may honestly have believed he had some connection to a god, but it also is very clear from the Quran that he at least sometimes knew he was cheating; some of the arguments he used in the book, any intelligent person knows are lies (f. ex. that miracles would not make doubters believe), and Muhammad was an intelligent man. And some of the self proclaimed “prophets” simply were/are cold and calculating – sometimes even psychopathic - - - and when one looks at Muhammad’s cold-blooded treatment of victims and opponents, his total disregard for the life and well-being of everybody that stood between him and power and riches (to use for bribing greedy warriors and chiefs to come to his religion and his army), and his clever psychological (every clever salesman knows much about human nature and psychology) manipulation of his uneducated, naïve early followers, it is easy to believe Muhammad belonged to these – may be combined with the effect of the possible TLE or something.
00i 3/164a: “- - - He (Allah) sent among them (Muslims*) a Messenger (Muhammad*) from among themselves - - -“. The Quran and all the mistakes and wrong logic, etc. there, makes it clear that Muhammad was not sent by any omniscient or omnipotent god (f. ex. no miracles – even though any god knows it is a lie that miracles would not give lots of followers - - - and so did Muhammad). But there is a small possibility that he was contacted by a minor god, and a larger possibility that what he believed was Gabriel, in reality was the Devil/a devil in disguise (Muhammad’s inhuman behaviour and the inhuman religion he introduced – stealing/robbing, raping, enslaving, torture, murder, mass murder, hate, discrimination, and war – may indicate this). Finally there is a not small possibility that it was all man-made.
065 3/164b: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
066 3/180: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22.
067 3/183: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. There are no clear signs (= proofs for Allah or Muhammad) in the Quran – not one. See 2/99.
068 3/184: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. Wrong. See 2/99.
069 3/189: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
070 3/190a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – there are no 7 material heavens. See 2/22a. Any god had known, but Muhammad not. Who made the Quran?
071 3/190b: “- - - Signs - - -.” As long as it is not proved that it really was Allah who created it, it is invalid as sign or indication or proof for Allah or anything related to Islam. See 2/39 above.
*072 3/190c: “- - - there are indeed Signs for men of understanding - - -“. Psychologically a good slogan; who does not want to belong among the wise men, and who is not flattered by being included among the wise ones by the demi-god of a leader? – especially the uneducated and naïve followers - - - or the brainwashed ones. But the only two things a man of real understanding can learn from statements that are clearly invalid, because they just are cheap words that never are proved – only backed by demands and flattery for blind belief:
Also see 2/99.
073 3/191: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
Surah 3: 73 mistakes + 9 likely mistakes.
001 4/1a: “Reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you (people*) - - - “. Man was not created, according to science, but developed from earlier primates. Besides: Even if man had been created, Islam has never brought a proof for that he was created by a god (not by f. ex. a devil), and neither for that the god in case was Allah.
002 4/1b: “- - - created you from a single person - - -“. Man could not come from a single person, there had to be at lest 2 – male and female. But even if there was a couple, that would be too little – the DNA variety would be too small for the “tribe” to be viable. Man simply developed little by little – like the Quran – from earlier primates (as for the archaeological Eve and the archaeological Adam that science talks about, and that some Muslims disuse trying to “prove” something: See the chapter: “Some wrong arguments – and their answers”.)
003 4/11+12: The verses about inheritance are far from clear in Islam. Muhammad stated fixed proportions. But the trouble is that those proportions may add up to more than the full value of the property. If there f. ex. are these inheritors after a man’s death: 1 wife = 1/8 (3/24), 3 daughters = 2/3 (16/24), 1 father = 1/6 (4/24) and 1 mother = 1/6 (4/24). If you ad these you will see that they are to inherit 27/24, which is mathematically and practically impossible. Or if a man dies and leaves only a sister and a brother: The sister gets ½ and the brother the double of what the sister gets = 3/2, which is an absurd joke. And what if a man had 2 wives, one with a child and the other not? Does the one with child get 1/8 and the other ¼? Etc. Juridical problems concerning inheritance are complicated under Islam because of these mistakes. But the shares are said to be ordained by Allah, the All-knowing!!!
003a 049 4/29 (A38): “Eat not up your property among yourselves in vanity”. But is that the correct meaning? “The Message of the Quran” has: “Do not devour one another’s possessions wrongfully – not even by way of trade based on mutual agreement” – which roughly says the same (something like “do not cheat each other” or worse) in a few more words. But the Arab word “illa” in front means “except” or “unless it be”, which means that the literal meaning in reality is “do not eat up one another’s possessions wrongfully, unless it be (an act of) trade based on mutual agreement” - - - which means that wrongful profit is ok if the parts agree on it – f. ex. by sheer a swindle where the buyer believes he/she gets a fair deal. This strongly contradicts other Islamic laws. It takes some highly advanced verbal gymnastics to explain it away. Every scholar agrees that the literal meaning must be wrong, but words have to be used in special meanings to make that meaning disappear. At very best very unusual use of the language – in spite of that the Quran itself boasts of that the language it to be understood literal, and that it is easy to understand. More likely it simply is a big mistake a la 6/151.
***004 4/40: “Allah is not unjust in the last degree - - -.” Wrong. Examples: Suppression of others is “good and lawful and just”. The same is stealing and robbing if it is possible to find an excuse to call it jihad – and the same for rape of any not pregnant female prisoner or slave. But the top of injustice is: A raped woman is to be punished strongly for indecency if she cannot produce 4 male witnesses to the actual rape. Allah in the Quran at times is extremely unjust.
*005 4/47: (The Quran is*) “confirming what was (already) with you (= the Bible, the Torah, etc.*) “. There are too many basic thoughts that are different between the Quran and the Bible – especially compared to the NT and the new covenant (f. ex Luke 22/20). Incitement to war against non-believers, the “lost lamb”, “do not kill” vs. “do not kill except for a good reason”, all the incitements to war, etc., etc. The Quran is no confirmation of the Bible, and definitely not of NT. It is also not possible that the same god is behind so different ideas, unless he is mentally ill. See also 2/89 and 29/46.
006 4/56: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
**007 4/82: “Had it (the Quran*) been from other than Allah, they would surely therein found much discrepancy.” What a proof!!! In addition to all the mistakes, contradictions, etc. (roughly at least unbelievable 3000(!!!) everything included), there is so much discrepancy in the Quran, that Islam has a special rule how to solve such problems - the so called rule of abrogation: If there is discrepancy between two (or more) places in the Quran, the youngest one normally is the correct one - the omniscient Allah so often had to change his mind or got new information that forced him to change his words, that one needs a special rule how to behave in such cases (this is one of the reasons why it is essential for Islam to know the age of the surahs and verses, or at least which is older than which). And there is so much discrepancy between the Quran and modern knowledge, that it is clear that either Islam has a lot of good explaining to do, or the Quran is not made by an omniscient god. (Islam has a lot of explanations, but most of what is concerning explaining away mistakes, etc. is invalid or highly dubious - use your brain and knowledge when you listen or read, and you will see this is true). The quoted sentence really is an indirect, but strong proof from the Quran itself that the Quran is not sent down from an omniscient god - and a reason why Muslims cannot afford to admit there is one single mistake in the book, no matter how unlikely explanations they have to use to “explain” the mistakes: If there are mistakes, there is something fundamentally wrong with the religion.
(It should be mentioned that some Muslims denies there is a rule of abrogation (an omniscient god would not need to adjust or further specify his own rules - it spoils the picture of perfection and of omniscience), but anyone can read and see for him/herself: Many points are adjusted, extended or given other limits - larger or smaller - in the Quran. We have never counted, but we have read numbers from ca. 100 to more than 500 abrogations depending on how strictly you judge. Actually it is said by some Islamic scholars that only 9/5 – “the Verse of the Sword” – abrogates 124 older mild verses).
In addition one has all the mentioned mistakes – they are discrepancies compared to the reality.
008 4/105a: “We (Allah*) have sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*) - - -”. With so many mistakes and dubious arguments - can it really be sent down by a god? No.
009 4/105b: “We (Allah*) have sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*) in truth, - - -”. With so many mistakes, it is without doubt that it at best can be only partly true (if not there had been no mistakes).
010 4/113a: ”For Allah hath sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*). See 4/105.
011 4/113b: “For Allah hath sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*) and Wisdom - - - “. As said before - f. ex. in 4/105 - there is reason for doubt as to if the Quran is sent down by a god, and no reason for doubt that some of the contents are not true.
012 4/126: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
013 4/131a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
014 4/131b: “- - - We (Allah*) have directed the People of the Book (Jews and Christians*) before you (Muslims*) - - -.” Wrong. Allah and Yahweh is not the same god – not unless the god is seriously ill mentally – the teachings are too different and Islam also never has been able to do anything but claiming that it is the same god – never a proof or any kind of documentation. They only show you to a book with very many mistakes, (told by a very doubtful man who also never was able to prove anything) and claim – without documentation also here – that this is a proof. After all a proof is "one or more proven facts that can give only one conclution". The "signs" and "proofs" in the Quran proves invalid mostly because they do not build on proven facts, only on claims.
015 4/131c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Even if the statement is repeated 2 times in the same verse, there still are no 7 material heavens (see 2/22a). Any god had known, but Muhammad believed in the contemporary Greek and Persian wrong astronomy – Muslims NEVER mention that 7 heavens was the astronomy of the area at the time of Muhammad, and neither does Islam. Everybody is free to wonder why.
016 4/132: “- - - heavens - - -“. See 4/132 just above and 2/22a.
00a 4/136a: “Believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -”. There is nowhere proved that Muhammad was the messenger of a god. Not even that he really had any connection to a god.
017 4/136b: “- - - and the scripture which He (Allah*) hath sent to his Messenger”. It is very obvious to anybody with some knowledge and the ability to read and think, that there are many mistakes in the Quran. It is a question if it is advisable to believe in a book where you know there are many mistakes - and may be many more you do not see. The fact that there are many mistaken facts - and dubious statements + contradictions + numbers of invalid “signs” and “proofs”, also makes one doubt the not proven claim that the book is sent down by an omniscient god and a copy of a book revered in Heaven. It simply is impossible that it can be true.
*00b 4/136c: “Any who denieth Allah, His Angels, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgement, hath gone far, far astray”. Hardly. When you know how full of mistakes and wrong logic the book that all Islam rests on is, it takes some more proof to decide that it is the non-Muslims that are “far, far astray”.
018 4/140 “Already has He (Allah*) sent you word in the Book (the Quran*).” Wrong. A book with so many mistakes and so much invalid logic is neither made nor sent down by a god – omniscient or not.
*019 4/156: “- - - they uttered against Mary a grave false charge (that Jesus was crucified and dead*)”. There were so many witnesses, included many that knew Jesus, and included so many that hated him and definitely had made revolt if he was not executed – the Jewish clergy was powerful - that this charge was definitely not false. If Islam says something else, they will have to provide good proofs, not only bring forth lofty statements taken out of thin air 600 years later. Because that is all the Quran has got to offer: A few lofty statements backed by nothing - no proofs and not even an indicium indicating that all those witnesses - and the rulers and the hateful Jewish clergy - were wrong. Words are very cheap - - - and the only fact Islam can produce is that neither Muhammad nor Islam can accept that Jesus died and was resurrected - in that case he clearly was a greater prophet and/or had closer connections to the god than Muhammad, and that is taboo for Muslims. It simply is unacceptable for them.
020 4/157a: “We killed Christ Jesus - - -”. Wrong name. The word Christ did not exist as a name for Jesus until many years later, and then it came from Asia Minor, and then as a title, (the Turks had not arrived at that time), not from Jerusalem originally (see 3/45). Any god had known this. (Christ in Greek = Messiah in Hebrew (= the anointed one). Because of that some translations of the Bible use Christ instead of Messiah in the NT. But the title Christ – not a name originally, but a title – in reality was not used for Jesus until years after his death.)
021 4/157b: “- - - (Jesus*) the Messenger of Allah”. It is absolutely sure the Jews did not say this. See 3/51.
*022 4/157c: “- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear for them - - -”. See 4/156. In addition: If no one else made sure that it was no impostor and that the execution really took place, the angry and spiteful Jewish clergy would see to that. This claim is made up by someone that could not accept that Muhammad was not the greatest prophet (even though Muhammad in reality was not really a real prophet – he did not have the gift of being able to make prophesies). If Islam wants to say something else, they will have a lot of explanation and proving to do - this even more so as the Quran always demands proofs for what non-Muslims say about their religion, but it NEVER itself offers any real proofs for Islam or Allah. In spite of all the “signs” it boasts of, not one single of those “signs” - with the possible exception of some taken from the Bible - proves any god at all, and definitely not one single one proves anything about Allah or the teachings of Muhammad. Words are very cheap, and there is not one single of those “signs” that can not as well and as easy be used by priests or believers or prophets of other religions: Manito did this, Thor did that, Kali made something, Osiris something else, Baal created the Earth, and al-Uzza is great. Islam always only claims that Allah did this and this and that this is a “sign” or a “proof” for Allah. But they NEVER prove that it really was Allah that did this and this. Because of that each and every such “sign” and “proof” are intuitively and logically invalid as an indication or a proof – and for the same reason any priest in any religion can say exactly the same valueless words about his god(s). The claims are totally invalid as indications or indicia, not to mention as proofs. There is not one single valid proof for Allah or for the teachings of Muhammad anywhere - - - or for that Jesus was not crucified and died.
023 4/157d: “- - - of a surety they killed him (Jesus*) not - - -”. If Islam is not able to produce really hard proofs for this statement, it is very obviously wrong. See 4/156 and 4/157c for further explanations.
*024 4/159: “And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him (Allah*) before his death - - -.” Wrong. If some of the People of the Book believe, they believe in Yahweh, not in Allah. It is not the same god unless something is very wrong with the god. Islam will have to prove so in case.
025 4/163: “- - - to David We (Allah*) gave the Psalms”. Wrong: According to science they are some centuries younger than King David. (And besides – Allah hardly was involved. If there was a god, it was Yahweh).
00c 4/167: “Those who reject Faith (Islam*) - - - have verily strayed far, far away”. See 4/136.
00d 4/170a: “The Messenger (Muhammad*) hath come - - - from Allah - - -”. There is no place proved that Muhammad is a messenger from any god - Allah or someone else.
*026 4/170b: “The Messenger (= Muhammad*) hath come to you in truth from Allah: - - -”. With so many mistaken facts in Mohammad’s tales (the Quran), it is impossible he really got the surahs and verses from a god, at least not from an omniscient god. Also see 40/75.
027 4/170c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
00e 4/171a: “- - - Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, was (no more than) a Messenger- - -.” Well, he frequently called Yahweh (the Jewish and Christian god) his father.
028 4/171b: “Christ Jesus was - - - a Messenger of Allah, - - -”. If Islam does not have strong proofs for this, he definitely was no messenger of Allah - for explanations about this see 3/51.
00f 4/171c: “- - - (far Exalted is He (Allah*)) above having a son”. If the Quran here talks only about Allah, that may be correct. But if it talks about an Allah identical to Yahweh, we have to remind Muslims of the fact that Jesus many times and in front of many witnesses called Yahweh his father – the word “father” as a statement of the relationship between Jesus and Yahweh is used at least 163 times in the NT, and the word “son” at least 66 times, many of those times by Jesus himself. And even the Quran agrees to that Jesus was reliable. And we remind you that in spite of what Islam and the Quran claim without any documentation about falsifications of the Bible, science clearly has documented that those undocumented claims are not correct.
029 4/171d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
030 4/172: “Christ disdaineth not to serve and worship Allah.” In 3/51 is implicated in the explanation why this is wrong. The only possible exception is if Yahweh and Allah really is the same god. But only Islam states that, and the teachings of Yahweh (especially in NT and the new covenant – f. ex. Luke 22/20) are so different at essential points from the teachings of Allah, that they cannot be the same god. Islam will in case have to prove it, not only to claim it.
031 4/174: “- - - there hath come to you (Jews, Christians*) a convincing proof (the Quran*) from your Lord (Allah*) - - -“. With that many mistakes, contradictions, etc., and so much wrong logic, etc., etc. the Quran is not very convincing, and its “proofs”/”signs” no more convincing. See 2/99.
032 4/176: “And Allah hath the knowledge of all things”. Obviously not in this case. F. ex.: Given the right combination of inheritors, their shares add up to 112.5% and even 125% or 150% of the inheritance (this has given lawyers and lawmakers much work – and at least the lawyers much money - through the times.)
Surah 4: At least 32 mistakes + 6 likely mistakes.
001 5/1 (A2): “Lawful (as food*) for you (Muslims*) are all four-footed animals, with the exceptions named - - -“. But the literal meaning of Arab “bahimat al-an’am” is “four-footed cattle” or “beast of cattle”. But “cattle” is something very different to “all four-footed animals”. To add to the mystery Rezi and others say: “- - - all animals that resembles (domesticated) cattle insofar as it feeds on plants and is not a beast of prey.” (One essence of this is that Muslims cannot eat marine mammals – not 4-footed and most of them are beasts of prey. But we have not seen any prohibition about this.) The main essence of this verse is that no Arab scholar really is sure how to understand exactly what it means, but that they agree on that “four-footed cattle” is a tautology that must be wrong – one more case where the majority agrees on that some text in the Quran is wrong (there are a few like this – see separate small chapter. And when not even the greatest Muslims scholars understand what the text really means, it is not “a clear and easily understood language”.
It must be added to the defence of the Muslims scholars who try to “adjust” the meaning of this verse, that the Quran clearly permits hunting, and mostly they did go hunting for food - - - and you do not go hunting for cattle. It thus is very clear that they are right when they say this tautology is wrong.
001a 5/10: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
002 5/12: “Allah did aforetime take a covenant from the Children of Israel - - -.” Wrong. See 4/159. The covenant was with Yahweh.
**003 5/13: “- - - they (the Jews*) change the words (of the OT*) and forget a good part of the Message that was sent them (OT*)”. There exist some 13000 scriptures or fragments older than 610 AD (when Muhammad declared himself a messenger) plus some 32000 references to Biblical verses in other manuscripts. They show that neither OT nor NT is falsified – nor is anything forgotten (omitted). But Islam HAS to insist on this. For one thing this was the excuse Muhammad used when explaining the differences between the Bible and the Quran – and Muhammad and the Quran has to be speaking only the truth, because if not the very foundation under the religion collapses. And for another thing – if the Quran is wrong and the Bible correct, Islam is a made up religion. But one fact remains: Islam has not found any proof for their claim, even though they have searched for it for 1400 years. They have trumped up a number of arguments, but like so often Islam only have cheap words behind their claims – if they had found one single real proof for their claim among the 13000 scriptures or other places, you can bet large money on that the world had been informed quickly and thoroughly about it. When science then tells that the Bible is unabridged except for better translations and the small varieties normal for handwritten manuscripts spread over hundreds of years and thousands of kilometres - and there were many thousands of scriptures spread all over - and each and every single one had to be falsified in just the same ways (facts Muslims never mention or explain) – well, when all this is added up, it is up to you to decide which – if any – of the two books is most reliable. (Also see 2/75 and 3/24).
004 5/14: “- - - but they (Christians*) forgot a good part of the Message (Bible/NT*) that was sent them - - -“. See 3/24 and 5/13 (just above). When it comes to NT, science is on even more secure “ground” than for OT, as one has original documents going back nearly to the first churches – included some 300 Gospels or fragments of Gospels – and there are found no falsifications. The texts simply are the same as today. Islam will have to offer proofs, not only claims taken out of the air like they normally only do. With so many old documents it should have been easy enough to find falsifications - - - if it had been true. Also see 2/75!
005 5/15a: “- - - revealing to you (Jews and Christians*) much of that ye used to hide in the Book (the Bible*) - - -“. To believe in the theory that the Bible is falsified, one has to know very little about how to make identical falsifications of thousands of copies of many different manuscripts, where on top of all all the different falsifications have to be synchronized in all the different manuscripts, so that the different manuscripts do not tell widely different facts. And not least: All references to and from the different papers must have been synchronized – try to do that even today with 100ooo papers spread over large areas and with no mass communications, not even a good post office (with 13ooo relevant papers or scraps of papers still existing today, there must have been at least 100ooo and many more in the old times, spread all over – papers are destroyed or rot or disappear over the centuries, all identically falsified, because at that time nobody knew which papers would survive until today!!!)
Judge for yourself after you also have read 2/75, 3/24, 5/13 and 5/14.
*00a 5/15b: “- - - there hath come to you (Jews, Christians*) from Allah a (new) light (Muhammad*) - - -“. Well, that is one of the questions: Did a man so morally degenerated and preaching a religion based on a book with so many mistakes, etc. and so much wrong logic, really represent a god? And did a war religion represent a benevolent god?
006 5/15c: “- - - (Allah has sent down*) a perspicuous Book (the Quran*)”. No god has sent down – not to mention revered it as the Mother Book in his own Heaven – a book with that many mistakes and that much wrong and invalid logic.
**00b 5/17a: “Why then doth He (the god*) punish you for your sins (if he loves you*)”. Wrong psychology, and a naïve question, as anyone knows you sometimes have to punish even children you love.
*007 5/17b: “In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary”. No Christian says that Jesus is Allah. Neither do they say that Jesus is Yahweh. Muhammad never understood the trinity dogma of the Christians. (He also believed the trinity consists of Yahweh, Jesus and Mary!!!). But if one looks only at that dogma, Islam may be right that it is not correct - may be. It is only a dogma decided on by humans after much quarrel and discussion; it is not part of the Bible. But no-one in his right mind and with some knowledge about the Bible, would ever believe Mary was part of the trinity.
008 5/17c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
*009 5/18a: “(Both) the Jews and the Christians say: ‘We are sons of Allah, and His beloved’”. Neither Jews nor Christians say they are real sons - or daughters - of Yahweh (not of Allah) (though they often figuratively - but only figuratively - refer to him as the “Father in Heaven” or humans as "Children of God".).
010 5/18b: “(Both) the Jews and the Christians say: ‘We are sons of Allah, and His beloved’. Say: ‘Why then doth He punish you for your sins? - - -’”. The question is not even rhetoric, but naïve - sometimes you have to punish even beloved children to teach them the difference between right and wrong, good and bad.
011 5/18b: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
012 5/19a: “O People of the Book (mainly Jews and Christians, but also Sabeans - a Christian sect in Sabah, now part of Yemen (Islam also have another explanation) - and later after a fashion and in some circles also Zoroastrians*)! Now hath come unto you, making (things) clear unto you, Our Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -”. Some may question if really Muhammad was the messenger of a god - he did not always behave like the representative of a good and forgiving god, and his message (the Quran) is full of mistakes an omniscient god had not made. But what is not possible to doubt, is that a message with so many mistaken facts at best can make things partly clear (and at worst really mess up things).
013 5/19c: “- - - glad tidings - - -.” Wrong. See 2/97c and 61/13.
00c 5/19b: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -“. Can a man so morally degenerated like Muhammad – and preaching a book so full of mistakes and invalids logic - really represent a good and omniscient god?
*014 5/20: “Remember Moses said to his people: - - - Allah - - - made you kings”. Wrong. The first Jewish kings were Saul (Talut in the Quran) and then David some 200 years after Moses. Any - even minor - god had known this. We have heard Muslims explain that this is not what the Quran means, but that Allah made all Jews like kings. But anyone who knows a little about Jewish history and about Jews before and now, knows very well that most Jews never were or are or behave(d) like kings. It is an obvious “explanation”.
00d 5/21: “- - - the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you (Moses and his Jews*) - - -“. Allah or Yahweh? (See also 3/51).
00e 5/23a: “- - - two (of Moses’ Jews*) on whom Allah hath - - -“. Allah or Yahweh? See also 3/51.
00f 5/23b: “- - - but on Allah put your (Jews*) trust if you have faith”. It is highly unlikely Jews at the time of Moses told their fellow Jews to trust Allah, as the name of the god of the Jews was Yahweh (and besides the name Allah was introduced by Mohammad only some 2000 years later (as a substitute for al-Lah)).
015 5/40: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
016 5/44: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00g 5/46a: “We (Allah*) sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law (of Moses*)”. According to the Bible Jesus was not sent to change the old laws – that was not his main purpose. All the same he did so – changed some and even nullified some of them, especially of all the additions made through the times by Jewish religious thinkers and leaders. This was more or less formalized during his last Easter, when the new covenant (f. ex. Luke 22/20) was introduced. (This covenant is never mentioned by Islam, and most Muslims without religious education have not even heard about it. This even though it is one of the main and most central facts in the Christian religion).
*017 5/46b: “We (Allah*) sent him (Jesus‘) the Gospel”. Any god had known that the Gospels did not exist at that time. See 3/3 and 3/48.
018 5/48a: “To thee (Muhammad*) We (Allah*) sent the scripture - - -”. As there are many mistakes in the Quran, there are reasonable doubts about if a god really sent down the Quran. These even more so as a number of the mistakes are in accordance with what one believed to be true at the time of Muhammad in the Middle East. Muhammad would have believed it was the truth, a god had known it was wrong. Then who made the Quran?
Islam will have to prove the statement to be believed by rational thinkers with some knowledge.
019 5/48b: “- - - We (Allah*) sent the scripture in truth - - -”. With all the mistaken facts - and perhaps other mistakes - in the Quran, it is at most partly the truth.
*021 5/48c: “- - - confirming the scripture (the Bible*) that came before it, - - -”. There are so many and so fundamental differences between the Quran and the Bible - especially NT - that the Quran is no confirmation of the Bible, and especially not of the NT. See 2/89 and 3/3.
022 5/48d: “- - - diverging from the Truth (the Quran*) that hath come to thee.” With that many mistakes, the Quran at best is only partly the Truth. Islam repeats and repeats and repeats the claim that this is “the Truth”. It is tempting to remember Minister of Propaganda (!) in “Das Reich” – Nazi Germany – Joseph Goebbels: “If you repeat a lie often enough, people starts believing it”. (There also are many other similarities between Islam and Nazism, and Nazism was liked and respected in large parts of the Muslim populations in the Nazis’ satanic days.)
00h 5/59: “- - - the revelation (the Quran*) that hath come to us (Muhammad) - - -“. Well, one of the central questions about Islam is if there really were revelations – and if there were: From whom? There are these alternatives:
A combination of points 3 and 4 also is possible.
00i 5/60: “Those who incurred the curse of Allah and his wrath, those of some he transformed into apes and swine - - -”. Hardly likely. This needs strong proofs.
023 5/64: “The revelation (the Quran*) that cometh to thee (Muhammad*) from Allah - - -“. A book with that many mistakes, etc. is not from an omniscient god. See 5/59 above.
024 5/67: “- - - the (message) which hath been sent to thee (Muhammad*) from thy Lord.” There is no chance that a message (the Quran) that full of mistakes, wrong logic, etc. is from an omniscient god. See 5/59.
*025 5/72a: “They do blaspheme who say: ‘God is the son of Mary’”. No Christians say that Yahweh is the son of Mary, Jesus. (Though catholic people use the expression “Mother of God” meaning “Mother of (the holy) Jesus”, but they clearly know the difference between God/Yahweh and Jesus).
**026 5/72b: “But said Christ; ‘O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord‘”. If Jesus had tried to teach about the in Israel known polytheistic god al-Lah from a heathen neighbouring country, he had got very few followers and had been quickly killed by the clergy in the religious climate in Israel at that time.
00j 5/73: “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a trinity”. Our sources tell that the 3 last words does not exist in the Arab edition, but is added by Yusuf Ali. Then the correct text in case ends: “Allah (Yahweh*) is one of three (gods*).” Which obviously is wrong, as Christians only believe in one god. Besides it is a most dubious praxis to make additions to a text without making the readers aware of that it is an addition – f. ex. by at least putting the addition in ( ).
00k 5/75a: “Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; - - -”. The Bible says something else – that Jesus called Yahweh his father (this relationship is mentioned at least 163 times as “father” + 66 times as “son” in the NT - frequently by Jesus himself), and far from always only his spiritual father - and as the Bible is written relatively short time after Jesus’ death, and on this point on the basis of thousands of witnesses that could tell what Jesus said, and protest if the narrators quoted Jesus falsely, it is likely that the Bible is more reliable here, than the Quran. The Quran is written 600 years later, and offers only unfounded statements and claims without any proof or even indicia backing up the claims. This even more so as the only Islamic source for the claims was a man who demanded to be the greatest prophet of all times, something he definitely could not be if Jesus was a relative of Yahweh – and this even more so as Muhammad in relity was not a prophet: He did not have the gift of being able to make prophesies (he did nor even claim to or pretend to have it) – perhaps a messenger for someone or something, or an apostle, but not a prophet.
Also as mentioned Jesus himself frequently called Yahweh his father - and Jesus is reliable also according to the Quran (but as said the Quran/Mohammad cannot accept that Jesus may be the son of Yahweh, because then Muhammad is not the greatest of “prophets” – and the defence of Muhammad also is essential, as he in reality was a dubious and immoral character).
027 5/75b: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
00l 5/75c: “- - - deluded - - -.” The mistakes, etc. in the Quran makes it an open question who is deluded and who not.
028 5/75d: “- - - they (the non-Muslims*) are deluded away from the truth.” With all the mistaken facts - and perhaps other mistakes - in the Quran, it at best tells only partly the truth.
****029 5/81: “- - - the Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -“. But Muhammad was no real prophet. The definition of a prophet is a person that:
A few things Muhammad said, came true – like it has to do for a person saying many things through many years – and most of what he said that did not come true, was forgotten (also this what normally happens). The main things here are that Muhammad never indicated that anything of what he said was meant as prophesies, he never indicated, not to mention claimed, that he had the gift of prophesying, that it nowhere is documented that all/most of what he said about the future came true (point 2), and finally both he and Islam said and says that there were no miracles connected to Muhammad “except the Quran” – prophesying is a kind of miracle. (This last fact also is a solid proof for that all the miracles connected to Muhammad mentioned in there Hadiths, are made up stories).
Muhammad in reality simply was no real prophet. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself – or perhaps an apostle – but not a real prophet. He only “borrowed” that impressive and imposing title. It is up to anyone to guess why.
030 5/83: “- - - they (Christians*) recognised the truth (corresponding to the Quran*)”. As said before: With that many mistakes in the Quran, the teachings of Muhammad at best are partly the truth.
*00m 5/84a: “What cause can we (Muhammad and the people*) have not to believe in Allah - - -?” Well, there are strong answers to that – all the mistakes in the Quran, the inhumanity of Muhammad and Islam, the at some points sick morality of Muhammad and Islam, etc., etc., etc. But the main point is that the question is wrong. The correct and relevant question had been: "What cause can we have to believe in Allah?”
**031 5/84b: “What cause can we have not to believe in Allah and the truth (the Quran*) which has come to us, - - -?” See among others 5/75 and 5/83. In addition - to answer the question: There are heavy reasons for not believing: The fact that the Quran - the basis of the religion - contains so many mistaken facts in a book that claims to be sent down from their god. Then how many mistakes are there in the religious points that are wrong? Is it really sent down from a god, or is it made up by someone here on Earth? And if it is sent down: In that case Allah very clearly is not omniscient - and not benevolent.
032 5/86: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
033 5/89: “- - - Signs - - -“. Invalid as proof for Allah or anything. See 2/39 above.
034 5/97: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
**035 5/110a: “I (Allah*) thought thee (Jesus*) - - - the Gospel”. Wrong. The Gospels did not exist until some 25 years after Jesus died (the oldest Gospel). See 3/3 and 3/48.
036 5/110b: “And behold, thou (the child Jesus*) makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and you brethest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave, - - - “. A made up story form the made up legends in the made up (apocryphal) Thomas Child Gospel. See 3/49 - Muhammad often repeats himself, even if that makes no good literature. Besides: A wonder like this had not been forgotten in the Bible - and especially not by “wrongdoers” wanting to falsify the Bible to make Jesus more holy, like the Quran frequently says/indicates.
037 5/111: “(the Disciples*) said: “We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims”. Made up story - see 3/51 for explanation.
038 5/114a: “Send us (Jesus and the Disciples*) from heaven a Table set (with viands), - - -”. A made up story - there is no chance that such a miracle that clearly shows Jesus’ connection to Yahweh, would be omitted from the Bible. Not one single chance. Even if Muhammad had been right and Christians had falsified the NT, this is the kind of stories they had added, not omitted. Some Muslims say this may refer a little to “The Prayer of God” - give us our daily bread - in the Bible. Much more likely it is a contorted version of the last Easter dinner.
039 5/114b: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
040 5/116a: “Didst thou (Jesus*) say unto men, ‘worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah’?” Jesus was not involved with Allah - see 3/51 for explanation. As for a divine Jesus, that is not explicitly said in the Bible, but many places it is understood that he was (f. ex. if Yahweh really was his father in some way, and also all his miracles – confirmed by the Quran – indicates something). But when it comes to Mary, Islam is right - saints are not a part of the teaching of the Bible (on the other hand also some Muslims have saints, notably the Shi’ites). But no Christian - not one single - prays to Mary as a god.
*041 5/116b: Mohammad believed the Trinity consisted of God/Yahweh, Jesus and Mary. Wrong. Both Muhammad and the Quran were wrong in the extreme when he/they thus believed Mary was part of the Trinity. (It consists (?) of God/Yahweh, Jesus and the Holy Spirit – also called the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of God, or only the Spirit). Muhammad never the trinity and he never understood the Holy Spirit, even though he used the Spirit a few times in the Quran – and some Muslims refer to the Holy Spirit in the Quran as another name for the arch angel Gabriel(!) as it is “known” that Gabriel brought surahs and verses, but it is also said in the Quran that the Spirit brought some. Also see 5/117.
*042 5/117: (Jesus said*): “Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord”. A story made up to strengthen Islam. If Jesus had said things like that about al-Lah, he had had very few followers - - - and had been killed within months by the Jewish clergy. See 3/51 for further explanation.
043 5/120: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
Surah 5: At least 41 mistakes + 13 likely mistakes.
Subtotal till here: At least 263 mistakes + 43 likely mistakes.
NB: If you find any mistakes anywhere, please inform us. If it is a real mistake, it will be corrected.
NB, NB, NB:
1. Read first the 2 small chapters "Some Essentials for how the Quran is to be read and understood" (VII-10-1) and "The Quran is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated" (VII-10-2).
2. http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked by many Muslim authorities. To debate with persons in such areas, cut and paste what you want from the pages and send it under titles different from http://www.1000mistakes.com.
3. http://www.1000mistakes.com is one of 9 pages which Muslim organisetions warned especially against in 2008 and 2009 - it could make especially procelytes lose their belief in Islam; correct and "down-to-the-earth" information works. In this connection it is worth noting that in the "warning" http://www.1000mistakes.com was one of 3 which neither was accused of bringing wrong facts, nor of being a hate page.
4. Comment 141 (to verse 6/149) in “The Message of the Quran” (see point 5) explains (translated from Swedish) about Allah's claimed omniscience vs. man's claimed free will:
“With other words: The real connection between Allah’s knowledge about the future (and consequently about the unavoidable in what is to happen in the future*) on one side and man’s relatively (!!*) free will on the other – two statements that seems to contradict each other – lies outside what is possible for humans to understand, but as both statement are made from Allah (in the Quran*) both must be true”. Unbelievable. Blind belief is the only correct and intelligent way of life, even in the face of the utterly impossible!!
5. And an afterthought: In the book “The Message of the Quran”, certified by Al-Azhar Al-Sharif Islamic Research Academy in Cairo (one of the 2-3 top universities in the Muslim world on such subjects) in a letter dated 27. Dec. 1998, it is admitted rather reluctantly that there are no proofs for Allah, and that it is not possible to prove him. An additonal point here is that if there is no proof for Allah and impossible to prove him, automatically there also is no proof for, and impossible to prove Muhammad's claimed connection to a god. And if there is no Allah and/or no connection between Muhammad and a god, what then is Islam?
6. Further: All the mistakes, contradictions, etc. in that book prove 100% that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no god makes such and so many mistakes, etc. If then Islam is a made up religion, what then about all the Muslims who have been prohibitted from looking for a real religion (if such one exists)? And where will they in case wake up after living and practising such an inhuman war religion like Islam is according to the Quran (and to Hadiths), if there is a second life somewhere? - Hell or Paradise?
7. NB and PS: No matter how sure you are about something, if it is not proved, it is not knowledge, only belief or strong belief, and can be wrong. Only what is proved or possible to prove is knowledge.
(As http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked in many Muslim areas - which shows they are afraid of it and lack arguments (if they had real arguments for http://www.1000mistakes.com is wrong, blocking was unneccessary) - "cut and paste" whatever you want from it and send if you want to inform or to debate there. Remember to omit the name http://www.1000mistakes.com).
PS: If we are blocked centrally - f. ex. by spam (there is too much at times already from unfriendly sources) we will reopen with new address somewhere else, and announce the new address om f. ex. http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam. Also if your comments to us do not reach us, any comments posted on the thread "What is it with http://www.1000mistakes.com ?" (or make a page containing "1000 mistakes" in the title yourself if you want) on that forum will be read by us - it is a big international debate page.
Please inform all and everybody and all relevant fora - f. ex. Internet pages for debate or information - about the address http://www.1000mistakes.com. It is information that is urgently needed by many, not least by Muslims. No god made a book with so many mistakes and other wrongs - and if the Quran and Islam are made up by humans or dark forces, where are the followers of this inhumanly dark and brutal war religion heading for in a possible next life?
