1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 10 -- Yunus (Jonah)

Revelation: Mecca, 621 AD

(See general comments on Surahs here: Introduction)


 

The quotes and comments

 

001 "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying, thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free and captured - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we personally believe in the demands and deeds. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities, not from propaganda.

002 10/1a: "Alif Lim Ra". These are Arab letters which starts many of the surahs. They are called al-muqatta-at or abbreviated letters, but no-one knows why they are there, and mostly they give no meaning - and in the few times they make a word, it most likely is coincidence, because the word has no connection to the surah. Clear language in the Quran?

003 10/1b: "- - - ayat - - -". Normally translated in the Quran with "verse", but may also mean proof, evidence, lessons, signs (often "Quran-speak" for proof), revelations, etc. In this case may be it means proof - some irony in case that something with so many mistakes is called proof. On the other hand much of what Islam and Muslims call proofs, have little logical connection to real proofs.

#004 10/1c: “- - - the Book (the Quran*) of Wisdom.” With that many mistaken facts, it is not a book of wisdom - and when there are many mistakes you see, how many others are there? - it is difficult to trust the rest of the text, too.

005 10/2a: "Is it a matter of wonderment to man that We (Allah*) have sent our inspiration to a man from among themselves?" Many were skeptical to that Muhammad -a local citizen - suddenly and without any proof claimed to be a prophet.

006 10/2b: “- - - We (Allah*) have sent our inspiration (the Quran*) to a man (Muhammad*) from among themselves?” With this many mistakes, etc., the Quran is not from an omniscient god.

#007 10/2c: "- - - inspiration - - -". This word is nowhere mentioned in the Bible in connection with information from the god to a prophet. The Bible clearly states that such contacts were made by dreams, vision or direct contact. Muhammad, however, claimed both that he got much of his messages from Allah via "inspiration" and that this was a normal way for the earlier prophets, included the Biblical ones, to get such messages. Inspiration is a normal part of human intellectual life, and the Quran never tells how Muhammad in case saw the difference between his own inspirations and the claimed ones from Allah. "Inspiration" also is ever so easy to fake.

008 10/2d: "- - - he (Muhammad*) should warn mankind - - -". The problem is that even though he started as a warner, after he gained power after 622 AD he also became an enforcer.

009 10/2e: "- - - he (Muhammad*) should warn mankind - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

010 10/2f: "- - - good news to the believers - - -".

1. It is good news to the believers at least in the next life if they behave well, AND if the Quran tells the truth - but it is clear that so much is wrong in the book, at best it tells partly the truth, and all the mistakes, contradictions, etc. also makes it clear it is not from a god.

2. It is good news to the believers in this life also if the book is made up - they can steal and rob and enslave and become powerful and rich and keep many women. At least in this life.

3. It may be bad news to the believers if the book is made up - and as mentioned it at least is not from a god - if there is a next life. Where will they in case end with the immoral moral code they have believed in? - no other big religion and few small have such horrors in a moral code. Compare it to "do against others like you want others do against you" and weep.

4. It clearly is bad news for the believers if there somewhere is a real religion with a next life. No matter which religion it is that (perhaps) turns out to be true, the Islamic moral code is so rotten, that no Muslim who has lived according to it and to the Quran, will be permitted to enter a paradise, no matter to which religion it belongs - with a possible exception of fringe, dark sects or ditto mini religions. And Muslims have been prohibited from looking at other religions than their own war religion, and thus to find out what is true or not. In this case they just will have to hope there is no hell.

011 10/2g: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims".

012 10/2h: “- - - the lofty rank of Truth”. See 2/2b, 9/48c, 13/1g, and 40/75.

013 10/2i: "(But) say the unbelievers: 'This is indeed an evident sorcerer'". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

014 10/2j: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". Any non-Muslim.

015 10/3a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

016 10/3b: "Verily your (peoples'*) Lord is Allah - - -". If he exists. If he is a major god. And if he is correctly described in the Quran.

017 10/3c: "Verily your (peoples'*) Lord is Allah - - -". Strongly contradicted by the Bible, which claims the god is Yahweh (and by other religions as well documented as >Islam, claiming other gods). Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

018 10/3d: “- - - Allah, Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved - and also claimed by many other gods.

019 10/3e: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

020 10/3f: “- - - Allah, Who created the heavens (plural and wrong) and the earth in 6 days”. Even though the Bible say the same number of days, it is extremely wrong - - - and any god had known that. As bad: The Quran contradicts itself by saying 8 days one place. This even though the claimed lack of contradictions in the Quran, Islam claims is a proof for that Allah made the book. (Consequently the presence of mistakes proves that Allah did not make the book).

41/9-12: Here Allah used 2 + 4 + 2 days = 8 days for the creation (Muslims claims that the two days for creating Earth is included in the 4 days. But the Quran is very clear: 2 days for creating Earth, then 4 days for creating what is on Earth, and finally 2 days for creating the 7 firmaments (wrong – there only is one, and even that is an optical illusion except the stars). No doubt about what is written. (Some Muslims also tries to tell that the Arab written word for day also may mean eon (the old Arab alphabet had no vowels or the points modern Arab use to signify some letters, and when one adds vowels, etc. as one likes, a lot is possible.) But there is little doubt that the spoken word Muhammad used to his congregation was “day” – and none of the accepted good translators uses any other word. Eons also makes Allah and his capabilities to a joke: 2/117: “When He (Allah*) decreeth a matter, He said to it: ‘Be’ and it is” – should he use eons for this small job?) We also should remind you that this verse contradicts reality quite a lot: Creation of the universe has till now taken 13.7 billion years, and of Earth 4.567 billion - and both processes are still continuing.

021 10/3g: "- - - (Allah*) is firmly established on the throne (of authority) - - -". Similar is often claimed, but never proved. Claims are very cheap, especially for a man even Islam admits did not respect truth very much if untruth or broken words gave a better result.

022 10/3h: "- - - (Allah is*) regulating and governing all things". See 10/3d just above. If there had been even one single proved case of Allah regulating anything at all throughout the times, Muslims had screamed about it.

023 10/3i: "No intercessor (can plead with Him (Allah*)) except after his leave hath been obtained)". One more never proved claim - and a claim in strict contradiction with the Bible and Yahweh.

024 10/3j: "This is your (Muslims'*) Lord - - -". Well, that at least is what the Quran claims - but the Quran is so full of mistakes, contradictions, etc., that it is very unreliable, and this even more so when you remember the moral quality of the man who told it.

025 10/3k: "- - - Him (Allah*) therefore serve ye - - -". The word "therefore" here shows to not proved claims - and from a man with proved (by Islam - al-Taqiyya, Kitman, "break even your oaths", and betrayals) low morality.

026 10/3l: "- - - will ye (Muslims/humans*) not receive admonition?" Sure - but preferably from a reliable source.

027 10/4a: "To Him (Allah*) will be your return (at the Day of Doom*) - all of you". Often claimed, never documented. An easy claim for any religion as long as demands for proofs can be evaded.

028 10/4b: "The promise of Allah is true - - -". With so much wrong in the Quran, this never proved claim is unsure. There also never has been documented one single case of Allah fulfilling a promise - unproved claims, yes, proofs no.

029 10/4c: "The promise of Allah is - - - sure". Wrong - as it comes via the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. it definitely is not sure. And of course as the Quran does not come from any god - not with all those errors, etc. - it cannot bind Allah - if he exists.

030 10/4d: "It is He (Allah*) who beginneth the process of Creation - - -". Frequently claimed in the Quran, but Muhammad never was able to show that Allah could create anything at all, not once. There only are words and claims. Also see 21/56c below.

031 10/4e: "It is He (Allah*) who beginneth the process of Creation - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which claims this was done by Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

032 10/4f: "- - - and (Allah*) repeateth it (resurrects*) - - -". See 7/158i above.

033 10/4g: "- - - that He (Allah*) may reward - - -". In this case the meaning is that Allah resurrects the dead ones so as to be able to reward and punish them. All of which he only can do if he exists and has the necessary power.

034 10/4h: "- - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

035 10/4i: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

036 10/4j: "- - - those who reject Him (Allah*) will have draughts of boiling fluid (for drinking*), and a Penalty grievous - - -.” Hell is no Paradise – and Allah a strict god. If he exists and is a god.

037 10/4k: (A10/9): “- - - but those who reject Him (Allah*) will have draughts of boiling fluids - - -.” Or: “- - - draughts of burning despair - - -.” Both ways of understanding is possible from the Arab text – and both are used, because nobody knows which the correct one is. And these variants of course also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning.

*038 10/5a: “It is He (Allah*) who made the sun - - -". The Quran often claims that Allah created this and that - but it never proves anything. Claims are cheap and easy and can be made by anyone.

*039 10/5b: “It is He (Allah*) who made the sun to be a shining glory - - - (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand”. Those who understand know that the sun is a shining glory because of radioactive activity inside it - a fact Muhammad did not know. If Islam insists it is Allah who causes it - not just a god, but Allah - they will have to prove it, not just use megalomaniac, but lose statements. Added flattery often gives good effect for cheap money when talking to uneducated, naive listeners. But an unproved claim still is unproved claim - and an unreliable "explanation" for Muhammad's followers.

040 10/5c: “It is He (Allah*) who made - - - the moon to be a light (of beauty) - - - that ye (Muslims/humans*) might know the number of years and the count (of time)". If anyone is naive enough to believe this is why the moon was created, just let him believe so.

041 10/5d: “It is He (Allah*) who made - - - the moon to be a light (of beauty) - - - (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand”. In this case those who understand understands that it is the sun that makes the moon shine (beautifully or not), as the moon is no light (it only reflects sunlight). If Allah - or any god - is involved, it has never been proved. But it is a nice thing for any priest of any religion to claim responsibility for on behalf of his religion, of course. That is to say: As long as you do not have to prove it. Muhammad also knew the value of flattery. Also beware of another thing here: You will meet the claim that the Quran one or two places tell the moon shine with reflected light. But not one single place in the whole Quran will you find an Arab word that means "reflected" or something similar. The claim simply is an "al-Taqiyya"- a lawful lie - to defend the religion and claim that it knew that moonlight was reflected sunshine. An easy bluff as most people does not know enough Arab to see that it is a bluff.

042 10/5e: "- - - Allah (did*) create this (everything*) - - -". Allah? Or someone else? Or nature? - another easy claim which never is proved.

043 10/5f: "- - - in truth - - -". With all those mistakes, etc. in the Quran, what is said at best is partly the truth. Also see 2/2b above.

044 10/5g: "- - - in - - - righteousness - - -". Read the surahs from Medina. How much righteousness do you find? - there are lots of points where you have to be born a Muslim and imprinted the Islamic (im)moral code and imprinted to accept, not to think, to be able to see righteousness.

045 10/5h: "- - - righteousness - - -". See 2/2b above. Also beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

046 10/5i: “- - - His (Allah’s*) Signs - - -.” There is not one sign in the Quran that is proved to come from Allah.

047 10/6a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

048 10/6b: "The alteration of the Night and the Day - - - are Signs - - -". This alteration is a natural result of that Earth is spinning in the sunshine. Muhammad often took natural phenomena and told they were signs - which are "Quran-speak" for proof - for Allah. Not one of them - included this one - has any value as a proof, until Islam first proves that it really was Allah who made the natural phenomena. After all a proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one logical conclusion.

049 10/6c: “- - - in all that Allah has created - - - are Signs for those who fear Him”. First Muhammad and Islam have to prove Allah has created anything at all - there is till now not a single proof for his creation of even a virus, or an atom - even if Muhammad got the question several times. He only had fast talk and childlike boasting (“if Allah willed - - -”) for an answer - the Quran only offers loose claims.

##050 10/6d: “- - -in the (creation or existence of*) heavens (plural and wrong*) - - - are Signs for those who fear Him.” Some sign, as science has long ago found that the Quran’s picture of the heaven is totally and utterly wrong. Bad business in the long run to claim credit for that "natural" phenomenon - not to mention to use wrong information as "proof"!.

**051 10/6e: “- - - heavens - - -”. This and word is used in plural something like 200 times in the Quran. (The words “heavens”, “seven heavens“,” firmaments”, “seven tracts“, and “seven firmaments” are used altogether at least 199 times in plural - there is no doubt that the Quran believes in 7 heavens). The plural of the word refers to what was correct astronomy in the Middle East at the time of Muhammad: That the stars, the planets, the sun and the moon were fixed to 7 invisible, but strong heavens formed like hemispheres (actually the Greeks knew the Earth was a sphere, so then the heavens there had to be spheres) over the Earth. The Arabs and many others got this picture of the "universe" from Greek and from Persian astronomy. Muslims today of course know it is wrong, and are “explaining” the 7 heavens in different ways - from vague thoughts about space, to telling that it means something else as - they say - in old Arabia the number 7 also could mean “many” (as if that is more correct in this case than 7), and to referring to 7 layers in the atmosphere (without explaining how the stars in that case were fixed to the lowermost of the heavens, or explaining how resurrected material humans can walk around up there, which the Quran tells), etc. Strangely till now none of our group have met a single Muslim mentioning that 7 heavens were the correct local astronomy at the time of Muhammad - may be they prefer not to mention that, because the logical next question then is: A god knew there were no 7 heavens, Muhammad believed there were. Then who made the Quran?

052 10/6f: “- - - in the (creation or existence of*) the earth - - - are Signs for those who fear Him.” Even when it comes to a thing as close as Earth, Muhammad - and Islam - was and is unable to produce any proofs - only big, cheap claims.

You will find this reference to the 7 non-existing heavens at least in these verses: 2/22 – 29 -107 - 144 – 164 – 255 - 2 – 284 – 3/5 – 29 – 83 – 3/109 - 128 – 132 – 180 – 189 – 190 – 191 – 4/126 – 131 x 2 – 132 – 170 – 171 – 5/17 – 40 – 97 – 120 – 6/1 – 3 – 12 – 14 – 73 – 75 – 79 – 101 – 7/54 – 158 – 185 – 187 – 9/36 – 116 – 10/3 – 6 – 18 – 55 – 66 – 68 – 10/1 – 3 – 11/7 - 107 – 108 – 123 – 12/101 – 105 – 13/2 – 15 - 16 – 18 – 14/2 – 10 – 19 – 24 – 32 – 48 – 15/16 – 85 – 16/3 – 49 – 52 – 73 - 77 – 17/95 – 99 – 102 – 18/14 – 26 – 51 – 19/65 – 93 – 20/4 – 6 – 21/4 – 16 – 19 – 22 – 30 – 32 – 104 – 22/18 – 56 – 64 – 23/71 – 24/6 – 35 – 41 – 42 – 25/2 – 6 – 59 – 26/24 – 27/25 – 60 – 65 – 87 – 29/44 – 52 - 61 - 30/8 – 18 – 22 – 27 – 66 – 31/10 -16 – 20 – 25 – 32/4 – 5 – 33/72 – 34/1 – 3 – 22 – 24 – 35/1 – 38 – 40 - 41 – 44 – 36/81 – 37/5 – 38/10 – 39/5 – 38 – 46 – 63 – 67 – 68 – 40/37 – 57 – 42/4 – 5 – 11 – 12 - 42 – 49 – 53 – 43/9 – 82 – 85 – 44/7 – 38 – 45/3 – 13 – 22 – 27 – 36 – 37 – 46/3 – 4 – 33 – 49/16 – 50/38 – 52/36 – 53/26 – 31 – 55/29 – 33 – 57/1 – 2 – 4 – 5 - 10 – 58/7 – 59/1 – 24 – 61/1 – 62/1 – 63/7- 64/1 – 3 - 4 – 78/19 – 37 – 85/9.

053 10/6g: “- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -“. Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

054 10/7a: "- - - those who heed not Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

055 10/7b: “- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

056 10/8a: "Their (sinners', non-Muslims'*) abode is the Fire - - -". = They will end in Hell.

057 10/8b: "- - - (evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

058 10/9a: “Those who believe - - -". = Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran".

059 10/9b: “Those who believe, and work righteousness (included fighting in wars, stealing, raping, and killing*) – their Lord (Allah*) will guide them because of their Faith: beneath them will flow rivers in Gardens of bliss.” The paradise of a primitive warrior from the hot desert - most boring in the long run to say the least of it. Has an omniscient, omnipotent god nothing better to offer? A curiosum: According to Hadiths 2 of "our" rivers - the Nile and the Euphrates - start in Heaven/Paradise.

060 10/9c: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

061 10/9d: "- - -(Allah*) will guide them (Muslims*) - - -". There is not much guidance in a guidebook as full of mistakes as the Quran is.

062 10/9e: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

063 10/9ea: "- - - beneath them (Muslims in Paradise*) will flow rivers - - -". The most frequently used Arabism in the Quran.

064 10/9f: "- - - Gardens of Bliss." One of the Quran's names for Paradise. The Quran describes Paradise like the dream of a poor, naive warrior in a hot desert about the life of a rich king on Earth: Good food and drinks, exquisite clothes and flat/house, luxury, cool shades, rivers, a harem, and not much more except that Allah is not too far off. A very boring "life" in the long run. (Little is said about "life" in Paradise for women or for children. What counts

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are thought that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

in the Quran is the man - the warrior). Also see separate chapter in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran".

For comparison: The Bible tells that you become "like an angel" in its Paradise. The same god? - at least very far from the same paradise.

065 10/10a: "- - - Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds (plural and wrong*) - - -". Similar claims many places in the Quran, but never a proof - only claims".066 10/10b: "- - - the Worlds!" Plural. But there are no 7 worlds like the Quran claims in 65/12. Hadiths even have names on them, tell they are stacked one on top of the others - they are flat of course - and that the lower down you come, the more hellish is life for the inhabitants. But no matter how many details Islam has got, it is not true all the same - there are no 7 Earths, one on top of the other, flat or not.

067 10/11a: This seemingly obscure verse simply is one of the many explanations the Quran has for why non-Muslims often have a better life than Muslims: God in his unfathomable wisdom for some reason have decided it like this, but is going to punish them in the claimed next life.

068 10/11b: "- - - those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us (Allah*) - - -". = The non-Muslims.

069 10/12a: "When trouble toucheth a man, he crieth (prays loudly*) unto Us (Allah*) - - -. But when We (Allah*) have solved his trouble - - -". How is it possible to explain that Allah "solves trouble" because of prayers, when the Quran many places makes it 100% clear that Allah has predestine every detail of what happens on Earth according to his Plan, and that nothing and no-one, and thus no prayer from anyone, can change anything in that Plan?

070 10/12b: "Thus does the deeds of the transgressors seem fair in their (non-Muslims'*) eyes". Comment to this in (YA1400): "Those without Faith (= non-Muslims*) are selfish - - - (and) - - - They do not see their own faults." Clear distinctions from Muslims - selfish and no good.

One of the many curiosa in this connection is why f.x. slavery abolishment came from Europe and later USA. Another why most of the NGO help organizations originated in the so-called West with few Muslims? Or in more modern times: The Tsunami in Asia - was it the good Muslims or the selfish non-Muslims who did the heavy task and who financed the better part of it? Small Norway (4.7 million inhabitants gave some 210 - 220 million US dollars in the first phase, from mainly Christians to mainly Muslims (except for Sri Lanka most places who asked for large scale help, were Muslim areas). How much did the super rich of the Gulf States give until international opinion forced them to give more? - from Muslims to Muslims. Find your own examples and draw your own conclusion of whether YA are honest when he teaches that Muslims are unselfish and non-Muslims selfish. But of course many Muslims believe such things when they are told so - true or not true. An extra tit-bit which surfaced in Scandinavia in 2010 AD: People doing the foot-work during large actions to collect money for NGO help and relief organizations, divulged when they came to doors with Muslim names, mostly they were given little or nothing.

071 10/12c: "Thus does the deeds of the transgressors seem fair in their (non-Muslims'*) eyes". Comment to this in (YA1400): "Those without Faith (= non-Muslims*) are selfish - - - (and) - - - They do not see their own faults." Muslims "forget" that this also goes for them: This may also be the reason why Muslims - often very honestly - are unable to see f.x. the horrors in their war religion, or the immoral - often highly immoral - sides of their moral code, etc. They have so often been told that this and this is just and right and glorious, that it simply feels right for them. And when then Islam has no moral philosophy - thinking - they also never learn to think over such things over.

072 10/13a: “Generations before you (non-Muslims*) We (Allah*) destroyed when they did wrong - - -”. Obey Allah or die - and many did die before you. At least that is what the Quran tells. (The background here was the ruins in the area and the folklore tales about former tribes - Muhammad claimed they all were killed because of sins against Allah. Science points to different other possible reasons for their disappearance in a harsh and war-like area.)

073 10/13b: "- - - Clear Signs - - -". See 2/39b above.

074 10/13c: "Thus do We (Allah*) requite those who sin!" See 3/77b above and 10/14 just below.

075 10/14a: "Then We (Allah*) made you heirs in the land after them - - -". In and around Arabia there were remains from earlier habitations - plus old tales and legends about earlier tribes and people. Muhammad claimed they all had been exterminated for sins by Allah - if Yahweh could be hard sometimes in OT, he was an amateur compared to Allah - and that his time's Arab were their inheritors - by the grace of Allah.

076 10/14b: "- - - to see how ye (Arabs*) would behave". Where is the logic if Allah predestines everything, like the Quran states many places? - not to mention if Allah is fully clairvoyant and knows everything also in the future (because he predestined it?)!

077 10/15a: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Clear Signs - - -". See 2/39b above.

078 10/15b: "- - - those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us (Allah*) - - -". = The non-Muslims.

079 10/15c: "- - - (non-Muslims) say: 'Bring us a Reading other than this (some surahs*), or change this'". How could this end in the "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.

The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".

This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

And as mentioned above, full predestination also makes prayers to Allah meaningless, as everything already is predestined according to Allah's Plan - a Plan which no prayer ("nobody and nothing") can change.

080 10/15d: "- - - but what is revealed unto me (Muhammad*) - - -". That is just the question: Is it reversal? It is clear it is not revealed from a god, as no god makes so many mistakes, contradictions, etc. But it also is unlikely that dark forces would produce a book with so much wrong - he/it/they had to know that sooner or later it would be found out and followers disappear. This even though the at many point horrible moral and ethical codes can make one think in this direction. Then there is illness - modern medicine believes that Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE) explains Muhammad's possible experiences. In that case Muhammad may have at least partly have believed in the stories himself. And finally there is the possibility: It is made up by a man/men in Arabia - all the mistakes and stories which are in accordance with correct or wrong knowledge in that area at that time, hints at this solution.

As for dark forces there is one possible explanation if it is they who have made such a sorry quality book: That the god only has permitted them to make such a trick for luring more humans to Hell, if the book contained so many mistakes, etc., that humans with a little brain easily should see the trap - f.x. if the god did not want the too stupid or naive or egocentric ones in his Paradise.

081 10/15e: "- - - the Penalty of a Great Day - - -". See 3/77b above.

082 10/15f: "- - - a Great Day (to come) - - -". = The Day of Doom.

083 10/16a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

084 10/16b: “If Allah had so willed - - -". Sentences like this you find many places in the Quran - but Allah never willed. Boasting?

085 10/16c: “If Allah had so willed, I (Muhammad*) should not have rehearsed it (the Quran*) to you - - -”. Small chances for that - Muhammad wanted followers.

086 10/16d: "A whole lifetime before this have I (Muhammad*) tarried amongst you - - -". Quite a time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

087 10/16e: "- - - will ye (non-Muslims*) not then understand?" That was just Muhammad's problem - at least some of the non-Muslims understood far too well that something was seriously wrong with his new religion. A problem many a self proclaimed "prophet" meets.

#088 10/17a: "Who doth more wrong than such as forge a lie against Allah - - -". Well, for Muhammad's sake we can hope he did not make lies (which he did) in the Quran - that it f.x. was all TLE (the illness Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) or something dressed up as Gabriel who cheated him. On the other hand if Allah did/does not exist, Muhammad's lies were without consequence - - - if there did/does not exist some other god who disliked lies.

089 10/17b: "- - - deny His (Allah's*) Signs - - -". What is the punishment for denying invalid signs of very unclear origin?

090 10/17c: “- - - His (Allah's*) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.

091 10/17d: "But never will prosper those who sin". But what is the correct definition of a sin? As the Quran very obviously is form no god, and as it as obviously is unable to see the difference between sins and not sins - its definitions at points are very obviously wrong - where do one find a correct definition of sin contra not sin?

092 10/18a: "They (non-Muslims*) serve - - - things that hurt them (people*) not nor profit them - - -". = They serve other gods - or another god - than Allah.

093 10/18b: "They (non-Muslims*) serve, besides Allah, things that hurt them (people*) not nor profit them - - -". See 2/255a and 2/272b above.

094 10/18c: "- - - hurt them (people*) not nor profit them - - -". But this also goes for Allah: In all history and 1400 years exactly as this is written there never was one single proved incident clearly done by Allah - for good or bad. Not one. Jesus had proofs, both according to the Quran and to the Bible. Muhammad only had words that cost zero - and is worth the same, especially coming from a man believing in al-Taqiyya (lawful lies), Kitman (lawful half-truths), broken oaths - and on top had all his future sins forgiven (the last according to Hadiths).

095 10/18d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

096 10/18e: "And far is He (Allah*) above partners they (humans*) ascribe (to Him (Allah*))". Not unless he exists. Not to mention if he exists not, but another - f.x. Yahweh - does.

097 10/18f: "- - - the partners they (non-Muslims*) ascribe (to Him (Allah*))". See 2/255a and 2/272b above. Also remember that partners can be ascribed to a made up god.

*098 10/19a: “Mankind was but one nation - - -”. Mankind never was but one nation. Perhaps once one tribe or a few small tribes, but never one nation, as some Muslims try to explain - and that in case was some 160ooo - 200ooo years ago (there seems to have been a “bottle neck” when man nearly died out at that time, according to DNA-studies). You also sometimes meet Muslims telling in triumph that science has proved the Quran, because now they have found the prehistoric Eve and the prehistoric Adam - - - without mentioning that the prehistoric so-called “Eve” lived the above mentioned some 160ooo - 200ooo years ago (the number varies some) in Africa, whereas the prehistoric “Adam” lived some 60ooo - 70ooo (64ooo?) years ago only, and not unlikely south of the Caspian Sea in Asia. With “Eve” dead 100ooo years before “Adam” was born - and a long distance off - it is difficult to see how they can be the “parents” of man, and thus prove the Quran. (You meet "scientific" "proofs" of this quality from Muslims and even from Islam (Muslim scholars and leaders) sometimes).

099 10/19b: "Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from thy Lord, their differences would have been settled between them (our distant ancestors*)". An obscure sentence, but it tells that Allah wanted disagreement among humans.

100 10/20a: “Why is not a Sign sent down to him (Muhammad*)”. Well, that really is a question. Friends and foes often asked for proofs - Muhammad only had fast words and sometimes lies to give them.

101 10/20b: "- - - Sign - - -". See 2/39b above.

102 10/20c: "The Unseen is only for Allah to know". Which means that miracles or the future is only for Allah to handle - another explaining away of questions for proofs for his god and his tales and his connection to a god - proofs neither Muhammad, nor Allah ever was able to produce.

103 10/20d: "The Unseen is only for Allah to know - - -". This is another proof in the Quran for that Muhammad was no real prophet: Muhammad was unable to see the future - that only Allah did here - and he thus was unable to make prophesies

104 10/21a: “- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs!” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

####105 10/21b: “- - - they (people*) take to plotting against our (Allah’s*) Signs! Say: ‘Swifter to plan is Allah!’” (The original - translated from Swedish (omitted in the English 2008 edition) A10/33: "Allah is swifter (than you) making plans"). This is another of the main alibis for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth*): When Allah can use devious means like indicated here, of course any Muslim can.

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya and Kitman can be used at least in these cases (for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal promise):

To save your or others' health or life.

To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.

To make peace in a family.

When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.

To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence permit in a rich country.)

To deceive opponents/enemies.

To betray enemies.

To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).

To defend Islam. (Advisable if necessary to succeed.)

To promote Islam. (Advisable if necessary to succeed.)

But al-Taqiyya is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve. But in the long run the real result is that you have no way of strengthening your word to be believed - yes, knowing about al-Taqiyya, Kitman. etc. anyone has to be a bit careful believing a Muslim - you never know when he may be using a lawful lie, etc.

106 10/21c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

107 10/21d: "Our (Allah's*) messengers record all the plots ye (non-Muslims*) make!.

Untrue for the simple reason that it is impossible - at best they can record the ones they get to know about. 

108 10/22a: "It is He (Allah*) who enableth you to traverse (travel*) through land and sea - - -". No comments - and none should be necessary..

109 10/22b: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) cry unto Allah - - -". Wrong. In desperate need humans - if they seek help from divine powers - call for the god(s) they believe in. Which means that if they do not believe in Allah, they call for other god(s) they believe in.

110 10/23a: "- - - in defiance of right". Beware that when the Quran uses words like "right" it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

111 10/23b: "- - - in the end (at the Day of Doom*), to Us (Allah*) is your (human's*) return". If Allah exists. If he is a major god. And if he is correctly described in the Quran.

112 10/23c: "- - - We (Allah*) shall show you (human*) the truth of all that ye did". Only possible if Allah exists and is a god, none of which is proved - there only exist claims and fast-talk for it.

113 10/23d: “- - - the truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

114 10/24a: "- - - the rain which We (Allah*) send down from the sky - - -". Muhammad often uses natural phenomena for glorification and/or "proof" for his god. In this case it means a lot of work for Allah, as the Quran another place tells he breaks the clouds to pieces to make the raindrops.

But as he never proves it is he who in reality sends the rain, it may as well be another god - many priests in many religions claim the same honor for their god(s). An easy and cheap claim as long as one flees from all requests for proofs. (And maybe it is done by nature?)

115 10/24b: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

116 10/24c: We may add that this verse is not very clear.

117 10/25a: "- - - the Home of Peace". = Paradise.

118 10/25b: "He (Allah*) doth guide whom He pleaseth to a Way that is straight (= direction Heaven*)". It is Allah who decides ("whom He pleaseth"), not you (in Hadiths it even is made clear that Allah decides whether you are to end in Hell or Heaven before you are born, and there is nothing you can do about that decision). A bit different from NT to say the least of it: Yahweh wants everybody to Paradise - you have to be a sinner by your own merit and from real free will, and not honestly regretting your sins, to be closed out. The same god? Hardly. Or Nyet!

119 10/25c: "- - - guide - - -". The only guidebook here is the Quran, and a book where so much is wrong, is not much of a guide.

120 10/25d: "- - - a Way that is straight". It there a symbolism in that Muhammad slaloms the way to his Paradise is "straight" = the easy way, whereas Jesus talked about the narrow road = more difficult? The populist versus the reality?

121 10/26a: "To those who do right is a goodly (reward) - - -" - especially if you have gone on raid or to war for Muhammad - or his successors. Because battles give more merit than anything in Heaven in the "religion of peace".

122 10/26b: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

123 10/26c: "They are Companions of the Garden - - -". = They are good Muslims and will end in Paradise. At least that is the claim - true only if the Quran is true, and if Allah exists.

124 10/26d: "- - - they (good Muslims*) will abide therein (in Paradise*) (for aye)!". But 11/108c may indicate it is not quite forever.

125 10/27a: “But those who earned evil will have a reward of like evil - - -“. Muhammad, his men and his successors did enormously much evil – stealing/robbing, raping, enslaving, destroying places and lives and lands and cultures, extorting, terrorizing, torturing, murdering, inciting to dislike, hate and war and mass killings and suppression of other humans – only that it was claimed sanctioned by a benevolent god, according to Muhammad, though a god who in case neither was omniscient, nor omnipotent. (He f.x. had to explain away all questions for miracles – sometimes with obviously logically invalid claims.) Compare f.x. the Quran's ethical and moral codes with the basis for all inter-human moral: "Do onto others like you want others do onto you". And at the same time compare Islam's and Muslims behavior through history with this. It will take quite a lot to give them “a reward of like evil.”

126 10/27b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

127 10/27c: "- - - they are Companions of the Fire - - -". = They will end in Hell.

128 10/27d: "- - - they will abide therein (in Hell*) (for aye)!" Actually there are some verses in the Quran which may indicate that Hell is not quite forever - at least not for Muslims who all the same have ended in Hell (6/128c, 11/107b, 43/74d, 51/13c, and 78/23). One other verse (11/108c) may hint that the same goes for Paradise (Muslims explain that this in case means that the inmates of Paradise will be transferred to an even better place, but this is not said in the Quran.

129 10/28a: "One day - - -". Here the Day of Doom.

130 10/28b: "- - - joined gods (with Us (Allah*)) - - -". See 25/18a below.

131 10/28c: "- - - their 'partners' (false gods of non-Muslims*) shall say - - -". According to the Quran the false gods - included idols made from wood, stone, etc. - will get life on the Day of Doom and answer questions from Allah. No comments. But one remark: There is not the slightest proof anywhere for the existence of Allah.

132 10/29a: The made up gods claim (see 10/28c just above) they are not guilty in the unbelief in Allah they have been involuntary parts of.

133 10/29b: "Enough is Allah for a witness - - -". Only if he exists - and not if he in case is from the dark forces, like much of the Quran indicates if he exists.

134 10/30a: "- - - the deeds it (the soul/person*) sent before - - -". All the deeds - good and bad - you have done during your life on Earth. Deeds which at the Day of Doom will decide if you go to Heaven or Hell. Only beware that Islam's thoughts about what is just and what is unjust often are peculiar.

135 10/30b: "- - - they (every soul*) will be brought back to Allah - - -". This only may be true if Allah exists, is a central god, and is correctly described in the Quran.

136 10/30c: "- - - they (every soul*) will be brought back to Allah - - -". Comment A18/48: "I.e., will be brought back to the realization of Allah's oneness, uniqueness and almightiness - the instinctive cognition which has been implanted in human nature as such". As Islam has no proofs or even clear indications at all for the existence of a top god named Allah or for Muhammad's connection to a god, you rather frequently will meet claims like this about instinctive knowledge, etc. about Allah/a god. Science has found no traces from such knowledge (actually man has few if any intellectual instincts). Neither has Islam - claims, yes - documentation, no. (Science has found longing for a god in a minor part of humans - some few (5 - 10?) percents - but a longing or a need for something strong to lean to, is something very different from knowledge, and as said only in a minor group of man).

137 10/30d: "- - - they (every soul*) will be brought back to Allah their rightful Lord - - -". Often claimed, never proved. It is not even proved that Allah exists - he after all just is a renamed pagan god (al-Lah) - or that he in case is a god (with the immoral moral code, etc. he(?) launched, he in case may be something quite different).

138 10/30e: "- - - their (non-Muslims'*) invented falsehoods (false gods*) will leave them in the lurch". But as the Quran is not from a god - far too much is wrong - where does this fact leave the Muslims?

#139 10/30f: "- - - their (non-Muslims'*) invented falsehoods (false gods*) will leave them in the lurch". This only is "invented falsehood" if it really is invented. There f.x. is a reasonable chance that Yahweh exists, and Jesus is a historical fact (he f.x. is mentioned by the renown Jewish writer of contemporary history shortly after, Josephus Flavius, and by 2 or 3 others a bit later). (A small curiosity here: There exists no real proof for that Muhammad really has lived. A few scientists honestly believe he is an invention.)

140 10/31a: Some natural phenomena (dis)used as "signs" for Allah without proving Allah is behind the phenomena - like Islam often does. See 10/6b+c above.

141 10/31b: "(Allah*) brings out the living from the dead - - -". This is one of the interesting claims, as the Quran frequently repeats it, but there never was a proof - only words, and words are very cheap. Whereas Yahweh/Jesus proved their power over death according to both the Quran (5/110)and the Bible (f.x. 1. Kings 17/22, 2. Kings 4/34-35, Matt. 9/25 and 27/52, Luke 7/15, John 11/44, Acts 9/40, and Acts 20/10 - not to mention Jesus himself).

142 10/31c: “- - - who is it that rules and regulates all affairs?’ They (non-Muslims) will soon say, ‘Allah‘”. Wrong. People of other religions would name their own god (or gods). (Though non-Muslim Arabs at that time might say al-Lah - the old polytheistic Arab top god, a name which sounds like Allah.)

143 10/32a: "- - - Allah, your (peoples*) real Cherisher and Sustainer - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere - and one of those cheap claims any religion can claim for their god(s) free of charge as long as they do not have to prove anything.

###144 10/32b: “- - - apart from Truth, what remains but error?” It is very clear that much of what is said in the Quran is not true – and then “what remains but error”?

145 10/32c: “- - - Truth (the Quran) - - -“. See 2/2b, 13/1g, and 40/75.

##146 10/33a: “Thus is the Word of thy Lord (Allah*) proved true - - -”. The trouble is that the sentence refers to nothing - there is nothing even remotely like a proof in the neighborhood. It may refer to 10/31, but what is said there are just some not proved claims, and has nothing to do with a proof - and most non-Muslims would not even give the intended answer (and even if they did, it was no proof). On the other hand this is the kind of argumentation you too often meet from Muslims: They take an argument which at most may merit the conclusion "this may indicate that - - -", and instead say "this proves that - - -". This is not argumentation worthy a god - not even a minor, uneducated one hidden in a distant corner.

147 10/33b: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

148 10/33c: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

149 10/33d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) will not believe". For a number of them this was not strange, as they saw something was very wrong with Muhammad's new religion.

150 10/34a: "partners" - here; false gods.

151 10/34b: "Say (Muhammad*): 'Of your (non-Muslims'*) "partners" (gods*), can any originate creation and repeat it?' Say:’ It is Allah Who originates creation and repeats it - - -." This is a kind of debate you meet all too often from Islam and Muslims: You have to prove everything - for them loose and never proved claims are enough - that only is for themselves. Demand proofs from them when they just claim or states out of the air. Also see 7/38e and 10/31b above.

152 10/34c: “Say: ‘It is Allah Who originates creation and repeats it - - -’”. That is very easy to say - why not for once try to prove it is Allah and not nature? It costs nothing to just say something. Any priest in any religion can say just the same about his god(s) - just as cheaply. Also see 10/31b above.

153 10/34d: “Say: ‘It is Allah Who originates creation and repeats it - - -’”. This is a very interesting claim, as Allah never proved he had such power (whereas if the old books tell the truth, Yahweh did - both in OT and NT). See 7/158i above and 21/56c below.

154 10/34e: “- - - how are ye (people*) deluded away (from the truth (the teachings of the Quran*))”. The Quran with all its errors, contradictions, etc. at best is only partly the truth. Then it may be an open question who are deluded. See 13/1g and 40/75 below.

155 10/34f: "- - - the truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

156 10/35a: "Say (Muhammad*): 'Of your (non-Muslims'*) "partners" (gods*) is there any that can give any guidance towards Truth?' Say: "It is Allah who gives guidance towards Truth". See 10/34a above.

157 10/35b: "- - - Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

158 10/35c: “It is (only*) Allah who gives guidance towards the Truth.” But this is contradicted by the fact that he is not reliable – he also can lead you astray. It actually collides with all the verses that tell Allah leads to Heaven whom he wants, and leads astray whom he wants. Or maybe the book only talks about those he wants to guide to Paradise? In NT Yahweh wishes everybody to reach Paradise - in the Quran Allah picks the ones he wishes.

Besides: Is this just an undocumented claim, or a proved fact - hardly anything of any consequence in the Quran is proved - f.x. not even the existence of Allah?

159 10/35d: "- - - guidance - - -". There is not much guidance in a book like the Quran - far too much is wrong, which also proves it is not from any god. Also see 2/2b above.

160 10/35e: “- - - towards Truth?” With that many mistakes, contradictions, etc. the teachings of the Quran at best is partly true. Also see 2/2b above.

161 10/35f: "Is then He (Allah*) who (claims he*) gives guidance to (the claimed*) Truth more worthy to be followed, or he (other gods*) who finds not guidance (himself) unless he is guided?" The answer will depend entirely on whether Allah is a made up bluff or not. In addition there is the question of Yahweh, who has proved his existence if the old books tell the truth. There also may be other religions whose followers will vouch as strongly for their gods, as Muslims do for Allah - perhaps with as much reason. Exactly nothing is ever proved about Allah, and not once in 1400+ years has there been an action of any kind provably from him.

162 10/35g: "- - - He (Allah*) who (claims he*) gives guidance to (the claimed*) Truth - - -". Allah's claimed guidance is to be found in the Quran - a book so full of errors, etc., that it at the very best only is partly true, and thus clearly is from no god, not to mention from an omniscient one. (There is a chance, though, that the Quran is from a dressed up something from the dark forces - f.x. it’s partly immoral moral code, its inbuilt prohibition against ethical and moral philosophy, its partly immoral and unjust sharia laws, etc. may indicate this.)

163 10/35h: "What is the matter with you (when you do not believe Muhammad)?" What is matter is simply that one knows too much, and has learnt critical thinking - not only accepting claims - and sees that things are very wrong in the Quran.

#####164 10/35i: "How judge ye?" We judge that religion and a possible eternal life is too serious a matter to accept that mistakes, contradictions, lies, etc., etc. can be hidden when trying to find out if a god/gods exist(s), and in case which one(s) is/are true and which not. Only complete honesty can lead to a correct answer in such a question - and the Quran/Islam most likely is the most dishonest of all big religions - the only one who on top of all not only accepts, but advocates dishonesty on central points "if necessary" to win a discussion - not to find the truth, but to win a discussion or a new believer.

165 10/36a: "But most of them (non-Muslims*) follow nothing but fancy." This is true if none of the other religions is a true religion. It also is true for Muslims if the Quran is a made up book - a fancy - - - and it at least is not from a god with that many mistakes, etc. It is wrong if the Quran is not from a god, and there somewhere else is a true religion. There f.x. are indications for that Yahweh is not fantasy - if the old books tell the truth.

166 10/36b: "- - - truly fancy can be to no avail against Truth - - -". A very sobering fact for all Muslims if the Quran is a made up book - and it at least is from no god with all those errors, contradictions, etc. This especially so if there somewhere exists a real good Muslims have been prohibited to look for.

167 10/36c: "- - - Truth (in this case likely the Quran) - - -" - but the Quran at best is partly true with all those errors, etc. Also see 2/2b above.

168 10/36d: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

169 10/36e: "Verily, Allah is well aware of all that they (non-Muslims*) do". See 2/233h above - if he exists.

#170 10/37a: “This Quran is not such as can be produced by other than Allah - - -”. Very wrong. Many a good writer can write stories as good as, and better than, the collection of surahs in the Quran. In spite of what Islam says, the Quran is not good literature. The same stories are repeated again and again. They frequently are not well told. There are no new stories or ideas – only stories and ideas borrowed from others. Honestly large parts of the book are rather dull reading. And the fabled high quality Muhammad’s Arab language? - what Muslims seldom mention, is that it took some 250 years to perfect the language - it was not until around 900 AD that it had got something like today’s language. It also existed in much more than one text. For one thing even Muhammad (according to Hadith) said it was sent down in 7 varieties which all were true ones - even if details were different. For another thing some of the old, original texts existed in the Muslim world for a long time after the “official” one was finished around 650 AD ( at some time there were at least 14 canonized varieties – 2 are used today: Hafs and Warsh, but most uneducated Muslims does not even know this). For still another thing the texts may have been slightly changed through the time - at least very old Qurans found in Yemen in 1972, had “small, but significant differences” from the modern edition. The dominating Quran today (Hafs), is the edition that was the official one in Egypt when first printed in 1924, according to what we have read. The version after Warsh is used in parts of Africa . Also see Preface in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" (list of the earlier 14 canonized ones).

The claim in this verse Muhammad could tell his uneducated and to a large degree an-alphabetic followers. People versed in quality literature today just will smile hearing such a claim if they know the Quran - it is not high quality even if you do not mind all which is wrong in the book. The one exception may be the Arab language in the book, as this as mentioned was polished by top scholars for some 250 years.

But in that connection we would like to quote an old American film critic some decades ago. He was shown a high quality film favoring narcotics. The question was if he did not think the film work was good?

"Well", he answered, "I always have meant that a work which was not worth doing, also was not worth doing good".

171 10/37b: From comment A10/60: "- - - the wisdom inherent in the Quran precludes any possibility of its having been composed by a human being - - -". This is an example of the kind of arguments Muslims sometimes resort to in lack of real facts. On the background of all the mistaken facts and other errors in the Quran, there are some words one could use to characterize this sentence and its claim, but in a serious work you do not use that kind of words.

"The fact that a claim is told or even repeated, does not necessarily mean it is true".

"Repeat a lie frequently enough, and people starts believing it". (Joseph Goebbels).

**172 10/37c: “- - - it is confirmation of (revelations) that went before it (the Bible*) - - -”. There are too many and too deep differences between the fundamental thinking and the morality in the Quran and the Bible - especially NT. The Quran is no confirmation of it, as mentioned before - the differences are too large and too fundamental. It also is clear that Muhammad took much from Biblical legends, etc. and not from the Bible itself, and thus not from "revelations that went before".

173 10/37d: "- - - confirmation - - -". See 2/2b above.

174 10/37e: "- - - a fuller explanation of the Book - - -". Here it must be meant that the Quran is a fuller explanation of the Bible. But as the Bible is proved not falsified and still is very different from the Quran (Muhammad claimed that originally it was like the Quran at least nearly, but that the bad Jews and the bad Christians had falsified it), this claim is wrong. Also quantitatively the claim is wrong - there is much more stuff in the Bible, so the Quran is not "fuller" that way either.

175 10/37f: “- - - (the Quran is*) a fuller explanation of the Book (the Bible*) - wherein (in the claimed fuller explanation*) there is no doubt - - -.” Because of all the mistakes in a book said to be sent down from an omniscient good, there is a lot of doubt.

176 10/37g: "- - - the Book - - -". Comment YA1429: "Allah's revelations throughout the ages are one. The Quran confirms, fulfils, completes, and further explains the one true revelation, which has been sent by the One True God (Allah*) in all ages". No comment to this is necessary".

177 10/37h: "- - - no doubt - - -". Wrong - too many mistakes, etc. Also see 2/2b above.

178 10/37i: "- - - (Allah is*) the Lord of the Worlds." Often claimed, never documented.

179 10/37j: “- - - the Worlds.” One more reference to the 7 worlds of the Quran (65/12). Wrong.

180 10/38a: "Or they (the opponents*) say: 'He (Muhammad*) forged it?" Already at that time many saw that something had to be seriously wrong.

181 10/38b: "Or they (the opponents*) say: 'He (Muhammad*) forged it?" A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

182 10/38c: "Or they (the opponents*) say: 'He (Muhammad*) forged it?" How could this end up in the "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.

The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".

This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

And as mentioned above, full predestination also makes prayers to Allah meaningless, as everything already is predestined according to Allah's Plan - a Plan which no prayer ("nobody and nothing") can change.

#183 10/38d: "Bring then a surah like unto it - - -". This that the Quran is so perfect that it only can be made by a god, is one of the most used "alibis" Islam has for that the Quran must be from a god. This is a tale they could tell to uneducated desert dwellers. ANYONE used to quality literature sees that the Quran is not high quality literature (perhaps excepted the language - which was polished for some 250 years before it got the present form), and that many a writer could write a book of considerably higher standard from collected legends, etc. The reason why it is not done and why nobody wants to do it, simply is that no matter how good a book and no matter how close to the contents of the Quran one writes, Muslims will claim it is not like the Quran and not as good as the Quran - if it is, their religion may be a faked one, and that is too hard to face. Also see 10/37a above.

184 10/38e: "- - - and call (to your aid) anyone besides Allah - - -". Non-Muslims do not call to aid anyone "besides Allah", but instead of Allah. Muhammad liked to pretend they had gods in addition to Allah, but they simply did and do not believe in Allah at all. And even the Quran strongly indicates they were and are right - a book of a quality like the Quran is from no god, and definitely not from an omniscient one. To claim a god has made the Quran is slander, insults, and heresy towards the indicated god.

185 10/38f: "- - - truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

186 10/39a: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) charge with falsehood - - -". See 10/38b above.

187 10/39b: "- - - falsehood - - -". In this case a not proved claim - like so often in the Quran. But also see 2/2b above.

**188 10/39c: “- - - (the Quran*) whose knowledge they cannot compass, - - -”. For the uneducated, often an-alphabetic members of Muhammad’s early followers, that might be true, except for the question: Who has most knowledge – the one without knowledge, or the one with much wrong knowledge?. But the claim is in no case true today - and we see that a lot of the “facts” Muhammad used, are wrong - something any god had known and not used it. A god also had made none of all the other errors in the book.

189 10/39d: "- - - but see what was the end of those who did wrong (did not believe Muhammad*)!" Unclear remark - most likely a general remark or a reference to the ruins in the area, which Muhammad claimed had been depopulated because of sins against Allah - but obviously it refers to a claimed bad end.

190 10/39e: "- - - did wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

191 10/40a: "Of them there are some who believe therein - - -". It here is unclear to what the word "therein" points - to the Quran, to the charges of falsehood, or even the claimed end of wrongdoers. In spite of Muslims' strong claims about how clear the language in the Quran is - and that the very clarity of the language is a proof for that it must be made by a god - the book often uses unclear language (a proof for that it is not from a god?).

192 10/40b: "- - - thy (people's*) Lord (Allah*) knoweth best - - -". Only possible if he exists and in addition is a god of some standing (well, even a devil may know things).

193 10/40c: "- - - thy (people's*) Lord (Allah*) knoweth best those who are out for mischief". Obviously a warning. Also see 2/233h above.

194 10/40d: "- - - mischief". Here it is likely to mean "those who opposes Muhammad", but what about Muslims? They did huge amounts of mischief through the times - many of them even believing that what they did were good deeds.

195 10/41a: "If they (skeptics*) charge thee (Muhammad*) with falsehood - - -". Already at that time there were many who understood that something was deeply wrong in Muhammad's new religion.

196 10/41b: “My work to me (Muhammad*), and yours (opponents*) to you! Ye are free from responsibility for what I do, and I for what you do.” This verse is contradicted and often “killed” and abrogated by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).

197 10/41c: "- - - I (Muhammad, am free form responsibility*) for what ye (non-Muslims*) do". This was in 621 AD. Later when Muhammad gained more power he "forgot" this, and forced people to become Muslims: Believe, or fight us and die, or milder forms for pressure - or bribes and the promise of riches from loot.

198 10/42a: "And among them (non-Muslims*) are some who look at thee (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

199 10/42b: "- - - but canst thou make the deaf hear - - -?" That is nearly as difficult as to make religiously blind Muslims see the realities they do not want to see in and about the Quran and thus about Muhammad, Islam, and Allah. No blind person is so blind or deaf as the one who does not want to see or hear.

200 10/42c: "- - - they (some non-Muslims or lukewarm Muslims*) are without understanding - - -". But may be the reason was just that they understood something was much wrong.

201 10/43a: "- - - guide - - -". You cannot guide anyone with a book as full of mistakes as the Quran.

202 10/43b: "- - - guide the blind - - -". Who is most blind - the ones who blindly accepts a new religion, or the ones able to see that something is wrong, or at least ask questions?

203 10/43c: "- - - they (skeptics*) will not see - - -". What Muhammad means here is "they will not see things my way". There were good reasons for them not to do that - f.x. all the mistakes in his teaching/the Quran.

204 10/44a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

205 10/44b: "Verily, Allah will not deal unjustly with man in aught - - -". Perhaps. But some of the moral rules and some of the laws said to be from him, are pretty unjust and/or immoral - some even worse. Actually 1 or 2 of the laws in sharia - Allah's laws - may be the most unjust and immoral in any somewhat civilized culture in this whole world.

206 10/44c: "- - - it is man that wrongs his own soul (by sinning*)". How is that possible if Allah decides and predestines every detail in your life, like the Quran states MANY places?

207 10/45a: "On day - - -". In this case the Day of Doom.

208 10/45b: "One day He (Allah*) will gather them (the dead*) together - - -". Often claimed, never documented - and similar claims are made by most religions, some of them may even be true.

209 10/45c: "One day He (Allah*) will gather them (the dead*) together - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says this will be done by Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

210 10/45d: "One day He (Allah*) will gather them (the dead*) together: (it will be)as if they had tarried but an hour of a day - - -". This may be of no interest in itself. But in Hadiths you meet claims that some dead are punished in the grave. For one thing this punishment is not mentioned in the Quran, and for another among others this verse tells that it is impossible - the dead ones do not experience time until they wake up at the Day of Doom, and consequently Hadiths have to be wrong: There is not time as experienced by the dead ones for such punishment.

211 10/45e: "- - - assuredly - - -". See 2/2b above.

212 10/45f: "- - - assuredly those will be lost who denied the meeting with Allah - - -". Often claimed in a book full of mistakes, never documented.

213 10/45g: "- - - assuredly those will be lost who denied the meeting with Allah - - -". Strongly contradicted by the Bible, which do not even mention Allah. According to the Bible what is wrong is to deny Yahweh and/or to accept any other god than him - which of course also has to include the undocumented claimed god Allah, a dressed up pagan god originally named al-Lah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

214 10/45h: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

215 10/45i: "- - - true (religious*) guidance". Not possible with a book so full of mistakes as the Quran, and even less so as no book with so many errors, contradictions, etc. is from no god.

216 10/46a: "Whether We (Allah*) show thee (Muhammad*) (realized in thy lifetime) some parts of what We promised them (people*) - - -". There never was a documented case of this.

217 10/46b: "- - - or We (Allah*) take thy (Muhammad's*) soul (to Our Mercy) - - -". One of the many never documented claims in the Quran. Claims are cheap when you do not have to prove them.

218 10/46c: "- - - to Us (Allah*) is their (peoples'*) return (at the Day of Doom*) - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.

219 10/46d: "- - - (- - - Our (Allah's*) Mercy) - - -". See 1/1a above.

220 10/46e: "- - - ultimately Allah is witness to all that they (people*) do". See 2/233h above.

221 10/46f: "- - - ultimately Allah is witness to all that they (people*) do". If he exists and if he is a powerful enough god or devil to see everything.

##222 10/47a: “To every people (was sent) a Messenger - - -.” Contradicted by:

28/46: “Yet (art thou (Muhammad*) sent) as a Mercy from thy Lord (Allah*), to give warning to a people to whom no warner had come before thee - - -.

32/3: “Nay, it is the Truth from thy (Muhammad’s*) Lord (Allah*), that thou mayest admonish to a people to whom no warner has come before thee - - -.”

34/44: “But We (Allah*) had not given them (Arabs”*) Books which they could study, nor sent messengers to them before thee (Muhammad*) - - -.”

36/6: “In order that thou (Muhammad*) mayest admonish a people (the Arabs*) whose fathers had received no admonition - - -.”

Which verse(s) is/are wrong?

(4 contradictions. Muslims may claim Muhammad was the prophet meant for these people - but in case all the people who had lived in Arabia had been without a messenger - according to the Quran - since the claimed prophets Hud, Shu'ayb, etc. = before Moses = some 2ooo years.)

223 10/47b: “To every people (was sent) a Messenger - - -.” Hadith mention 124ooo messengers or prophets. There is not one single trace from prophets teaching monotheism (except in Israel and a couple of other special cases), not to mention Islam, in the old times, neither in archaeology, art, literature, folk tales, nor in religions. Some of them should have left small traces at least, when they were so many. This verse is not true.

##224 10/47c: “To every people (was sent) a Messenger - - -.” Comment A10/68 (translated from Swedish): This verse stresses the continuity of religious revelation in mankind's history and the fact (!*) that through the times no community , period or civilization - - - has been left without prophetic guidance - - -". Neither science nor Islam has been able to find the slightest traces from such prophets (except the Jewish, and they talked about Yahweh, not about Allah). It simply is a fairy tale - if Islam is not able to prove it is true.

225 10/47d: "- - - with justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

226 10/47e: "- - - not be wronged". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

227 10/48a: "They (skeptics at the time of Muhammad*) say: 'When will this come to pass - - -?" How could this end up in the "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.

The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".

This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

And as mentioned above, full predestination also makes prayers to Allah meaningless, as everything already is predestined according to Allah's Plan - a Plan which no prayer ("nobody and nothing") can change.

228 10/48b: "- - - if ye (Muhammad*) speak the truth - - -". At least he does not always speak the full truth when he tells the verses and surahs in the Quran, and at least a few times he knows he is lying - f.x. some of his "explanations" for why there are no miracles from his god, he knows is untrue - he was to intelligent not to see that.<(p>

##229 10/49a: "I (Muhammad*) have no power over any harm or profit to myself except as Allah willeth". In clear language: Muhammad had no supernatural power. M. Asad understands it the same way - to quote his comment (A10/69) to this verse: "and since I (Muhammad*) do not possess any supernatural powers, I cannot predict that which is beyond the reach of human perception (al-ghayb)." This is a good verse and a good fact to remember when you meet Muslims who in triumph tell about miracles or foreseeing performed by Allah, or read about such ones in the Hadiths - there are a number. This is one of the many verses in the Quran which prove that all such stories are made up legends no matter where you meet them, even with Al-Bukhari or Imam Muslim, and this even though many learned Muslims use big words about these claimed miracles. AND NB: ALL THESE LEARNED MUSLIM SCHOLARS HAVE STUDIED THE QURAN AND HAVE TO KNOW THE STORIES ARE MADE UP - this fact tells something about ethics, moral and integrity among at least large parts of the Islamic religious intelligentsia, when they tell their lay people about Muhammad's "miracles".

This verse also is one of several proofs for that Muhammad was no real prophet - he was not able to make prophesies, and without that ability you are no real prophet. (The same is said in 7/188b, and by his favorite (child) wife Aishah).

#230 10/49b: "I (Muhammad*) have no power over any harm or profit to myself except as Allah willeth". Y10/69: "and since I (Muhammad*) do not possess any supernatural powers, I cannot predict that which is beyond the reach of human perception". Muhammad had not the ability to make prophesies - thus no prophet. It may here be relevant to mention that in the really old times the title among the Jews was not prophet but seer (f.x. 1. Sam. 9/9) - one who could see or at least glimpse the future.

231 10/49c: “To every people is a term (a date of ending*) appointed: when their term is reached, not an hour can they cause delay, nor (an hour) can they advance (it in anticipation)”. No matter what humans do, Allah is it who decides and predestines. Thus f.x. prayers will be in vain - nothing can change Allah's predestined Plan.

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are thought that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

232 10/49d: “To every people is a term (a date of ending*) appointed: when their term is reached, not an hour can they cause delay, nor (an hour) can they advance (it in anticipation)”. This is contradicted by the Bible, where the future is changeable. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

233 10/50: "- - - what proportion of it (punishment*) would the Sinners wish to hasten?" Skeptics sometimes told Muhammad to ask Allah to send the punishment Muhammad declared, as a proof for that he told the truth. Muhammad never was able to prove anything, neither this way nor in any other way. He only tried to "explain" everything away.

234 10/51: "Would ye (non-Muslims*) then (if/when premature punishment came*) believe in it at last, when it actually cometh to pass? (It will be said:) 'Ah! Now? And ye wanted (aforetime) to hasten it on!" A leading question based on a hypothetical possibility. Muhammad indicates that the answer would be "yes", but that is Muhammad's wish simply.

235 10/52a: "At length it will be said to the wrongdoers - - -". Similar several times claimed in the Quran, but never proved.

236 10/52b: "At length it will be said to the wrongdoers: 'Taste ye the enduring punishment!". See 3/77b above.

237 10/52c: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". One of Muhammad's several negative names for non-Muslims.

238 10/52d: “Ye (sinners*) get but the recompense of what ye earned!” Is there really real justice in the terrible and everlasting punishment in hell, compared to the after all not too big sins of many of the sinners?

239 10/52e: “Ye (sinners*) get but the recompense of what ye earned!” When you look at the partly immoral moral rules of the Quran (compare them to "do against others like you want others do against you" - the only really ethical and moral guideline) - do humans who are judged according to Muhammad's, the Quran's, and Islam's partly immoral and unjust moral and judicial rules always get fair punishment or fair reward?

240 10/53a: "It is the very truth". May be. But with so much in the book wrong, such a statement is not reliable without a proof.

241 10/53b: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

242 10/53c: "- - - the very truth - - -!" See 2/2b above.

243 10/53d: "And ye (wrongdoers*) cannot frustrate it (your destiny*)". Allah has decided - predestination rules. Different from NT where there is possibility to the very end, if there is honest regret and remorse.

244 10/54a: (YA1445): “They would declare (“assure”*) (their) repentance”. But the Arab word “assure” also may mean to “conceal” or “hide”. Which will give this meaning: “They would give anything to escape the penalty - - -.” Clear language in the Quran, yes.

245 10/54b: "- - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

246 10/54c: "- - - no wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

247 10/55a: "Is it not (the case) that to Allah belongeth (everything*)?" No, it is an unproved claim, not "the case".

248 10/55b: "Is it not (the case) that to Allah belongeth (everything*)?" Contradicted by the Bible, which says it belongs to Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

249 10/55c: “- - - heavens - - -“. See 2/22d.

250 10/55d: “Is it not (the case) that Allah’s promise (the Quran*) is assuredly true?” The Quran itself in this case like in many others proves it is not true – too many mistakes, etc. For short here: No, it is a claim, not a truth. Because of all he mistakes in the book, nothing there is assuredly true there, unless it is proved. The claim even is seriously weakened by the fact that the Quran is not from a god - no god makes that many mistakes.

251 10/55e: “Is it not (the case) that Allah’s promise (the Quran*) is assuredly true?” There has not been one single proved case in all history and prehistory of a promise proved coming from Allah, has been proved to be true. Lots of claims, not one proved case - - - and the best proof for this is the silence from Islam about such a case.

252 10/55f: "- - - assuredly - - -". See 2/2b above.

253 10/55g: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

254 10/55h: "Yet most of them (humans*) understand not". The real problem might have been that a number already then really understood that something was very wrong.

255 10/56a: "It is He (Allah*) who giveth life - - -". A claim frequently repeated in the Quran, but never with the slightest proof. Reality or a bluff? (But if the Quran or/and the Bible tells the truth on this point, Yahweh/Jesus did prove to have power over death and thus ability to give life). Also see 7/158i above and 21/56c below.

Actually this claim is pretty interesting, as the Quran nowhere proves that Allah is able neither to give original life, nor resurrect dead ones, whereas if the old books tells the truth, Yahweh has proved at least his power of resurrection.

256 10/56b: "- - - to Him (Allah*) shall ye (people*) all be brought back (at the Day of Doom*)". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.

257 10/56c: "- - - to Him (Allah*) shall ye (people*) all be brought back (at the Day of Doom*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which says it is to Yahweh one is brought back. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

258 10/57a: "- - - a direction (the Quran*) - - -". There is not much valid direction in a book full of errors.

259 10/57b: "- - - a direction (the Quran*) from your (mankind's*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". It is heresy and an insult and slander to any god to blame a god for a book of a quality like the Quran.

260 10/57c: "- - - (the Quran is*) a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts - - -". There is not much healing in a "medical" book full of mistakes, contradictions, etc.

261 10/57d: "- - - the (diseases) in your (unbelievers'*) hearts - - -". From other places in the Quran it is clear that if you do not believe in "Allah and His Prophet Muhammad" the reason is a disease in your heart.

No comments - and none necessary. 

262 10/57e: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran.

263 10/57f: “(The Quran is*) a Guidance - - -.” A book with that much wrong, is no guidance.

264 10/57g: “(The Quran is*) a Mercy.” Can a book with that much al/Taqiyya etc.(lawful lie, etc.), suppression, rape, stealing/robbery, blood and murder and war, be a mercy?

265 10/57h: "- - - Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

266 10/57i: "- - - Mercy - - -". See 2/2b above.

268 10/58b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". Read the surahs from Medina and see how much mercy there really is in Allah. Also see 1/1a above.

269 10/58c: "- - - that (Allah's bounty - here likely Paradise*) is better than the (wealth) they (people*) hoard". Only if Allah and his version of a Paradise exists, and if Muslims in spite of all the mistakes and the partly immoral moral code in the Quran may end there.

270 10/59a: "See ye (humans*) what things Allah hat sent down to you for sustenance?" One of the very many, but never documented claims Muhammad makes, claiming that ordinary natural phenomena - here food, etc. - are "signs" ("Quran-speak" for indications or proofs) or "proofs" for his god - or for glorification of him. 100% invalid as long as Islam does not first prove it really is Allah who is behind the phenomena. Claims so cheap that any priest or believer in any religion can say just the same on behalf of his own god(s),

271 10/59b: "Hath Allah indeed permitted you (people*), or do ye invent (things) to attribute to Allah?" The underlying meaning is that only the Quran/Muhammad/Islam has the right rules. This may - may - be correct if Allah exists, is a major god, and the Quran has described him and his sometimes doubtful moral code correctly.

272 10/60a: "- - - those who invented lies against Allah - - -". = Those who argue against Muhammad's stories, and also one of Muhammad's many negative and distance producing names for non-Muslims.

273 10/60b: "- - - those who invented lies against Allah - - -". Was Muhammad one of them? - the Quran is not made by a god - too many mistakes, contradictions, cases of invalid logic and of unclear language, etc. - and it has to be made by someone. Well, if Muhammad invented him, he was in the nice position that he knew an invented god could not punish him, no matter what he himself did. (But to be fair: If the reason for his belief was an illness like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), he may have believed at least partly in his stories himself.)

274 10/60c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

275 10/60d: "- - - Allah is full of Bounty to mankind - - -". There still was much and rich loot to be taken, Muhammad said. Whereas at least for the old Protestants, the world was full of work to be done - work which turned out to bring the word forwards, instead of war and robbery bringing it into stagnation, like happened to the Islamic parts of the world. (And which is likely to happen to the whole world if Islam with its view on non-religious knowledge and on religious ruling of the communities and the world, wins out in the end. But remember we say Islam, not Arabs or Berbers, or other groups of people).

276 10/61a: "- - - We (Allah*) are witness - - -". Only possible if he exists and if he has the power - from white or black forces - to observe everything.

277 10/61b: "- - - We (Allah*) are witness thereof (whatever you do*) - - -". See 2/233h above.

278 10/61c: "- - - atom - - -". Some think this word must be wrong, believing it is a modern word. But the word originally is Greek (and means "impossible to split"), and is 1000 years older than Muhammad. It may have existed in Arabia at the time of Muhammad.

279 10/61d: "- - - recorded in a clear Record". Why did an omniscient god need a record?

280 10/62a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

281 10/62b: "- - - on the friends of Allah there is no fear - - -". The old truth: If Allah exists ad is a major god.

282 10/62c: "- - - the friends of Allah - - -". = Muslims.

283 10/62d: "- - - nor shall they (Muslims*) grieve(in the next life?*) - - -". This will depend entirely on whether the Quran speaks the truth, the full truth, and only the truth.

284 10/63a: "Those who believe - - -". = Muslims.

285 10/63b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

286 10/64a: “- - - Glad Tidings - - -.” See 2/97c and 61/13.

###287 10/64b: “- - - in the life of the Present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah”. What Allah decides is final - pure predestination. And many things he decides early – f.x. the day of your death and whether you will end in Hell or Heaven is (according to Hadiths) decided 5 months before you are born. And remember: According to the Quran Allah's predestined Plan is impossible to change by anyone or anything. Good or bad deeds, prayers or whatever - nothing can change Allah's predestined Plan, according to the Quran.

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are thought that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

##288 10/64c: “- - - in the life of the Present and in the Hereafter, no change can there be in the Words of Allah.” For one thing this sentence has serious effect for the ones who say that predestination in the Quran, is not real predestination – when Allah has said/thought/written something, no free will of man can change anything - - - which means there is no free will, and things are predestined as sure as carved in stone. But more relevant just here is that there were many and sometimes large changes in Allah’s words after this “revelation” in 621 AD, and also just one year later Muhammad/Allah(?) started to change the religion totally and fundamentally (from peace to a war religion). Thus this claim is contradicted by the changes in the Quran and in the religion (from quite peaceful to a full-fledged war religion) from around 622 - 624 AD.

The main change was that the entire religion was changed from something peaceful, to a religion of hate, suppression, inhumanities and blood. But there were a lot of other changes in what Allah (?) had said – all the contradictions which came because the religion was changed, and things had to be adjusted for, and all the abrogations (sorry substitutions according to some Muslims – another, but nicer, name for just the same) which became necessary. So many abrogations, that they demanded explanations:

2/106: “None of our revelations do We (Allah*) abrogate or cause to be forgotten, But We substitute something better or similar”. Well, this is a contradiction – and an abrogation – in itself. This actually is one of the verses behind the use of abrogations in Islam. It may also be one of the reasons – may be the main reason – why abrogated and thus invalid verses (like 2/256: "Let there be no compulsion in religion") were included by Caliph Uthman in the Quran originally – they should not be abrogated in the meaning that they should be forgotten. But abrogations are absolutely necessary in Islam, because there are so many contradictions, that the situation would be impossible unless they could be eliminated by making a number of them invalid. Se separate chapter about abrogation in "1000+ Mistakes in the Queen". NB: Surah 2 from which this verse is taken “arrived” in 622-624 AD. Allah’s words from 621 AD had to be dismissed rather quickly and on a large scale – the change to a robber baron and war religion had started.

16/101: “When We (Allah*) substitute one revelation for another - - -.” Yes, to “substitute” definitely sounds better than to “abrogate” – but the only difference is that “substitute” is daily English (though perhaps from Latin originally), whereas “abrogate” is more pure Latin. The meaning in this case is just the same. And this verse proves that Allah had to start “substituting” his proud words from 621 AD, maximum one – 1 – year later, because surah 16 is from ca. 622 AD. Allah’s (?) words are for the eternity – but not for long eternities when it is a tempting idea to start stealing and robbing, and it may be wise to have a war religion instead of a peaceful one. But one question: Was it Allah who found he had made a mistake by starting a peaceful religion? - or was is Muhammad who wanted warriors and needed a more warlike teaching which caused the marked change in Islam after 622 AD?

10/64 also totally abrogates the claim about free will for man, as it tells Allah's predestination cannot be changed. And not to forget: If Allah's predestined Plan is unchangeable like the Quran flatly states many places, also prayers are meaningless - they will have no effect on the predestined Plan.

***289 10/64d: “Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme Felicity.” The first sentence may partly explain why Muslims cannot admit the mistakes, no matter how wild “explanations” they have to use. The second one is plainly wrong - see f. ex. 10/39 above.

Also: This surah was dictated by Muhammad ca. 621. There were many changes in Islam after that – Islam even changed its basis fundamentally and completely from rather peaceful to a religion of robbing, apartheid, suppression, hate and war, built the sword and at least partly on dishonesty - al-Taqiyya, Kitman, "break your oat if that gives a better result", "war is deceit". (How could both these two conflicting directions - peaceful vs. full war religion - both be right and parts of the unchangeable teaching of Allah?) There also were many mistakes which science now see, where the “facts” are changed by reality, and there were many “signs” and “proofs” which the laws of logic in reality changed the moment they were pronounced (Muslims only do not know or refuse to see). His felicity was not and is not 100%.

290 10/64e: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

291 10/64f: "- - - supreme Felicity". See 2/2b above.

292 10/65a: "- - - all power - - - belong to Allah - - -". Such power is often claimed in the Quran, but nowhere really documented.

293 10/65b: "- - - all - - - honor belong to Allah - - -". Please read 1/1a above and see if you agree.

294 10/65c: "- - - it is He (Allah*)Who heareth and knoweth (all things)". In this case: Remain calm - he will punish them. But also see 2/233h above.

295 10/66a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

296 10/66b: "- - - verily to Allah belong all creatures, in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth". Often claimed, never proved - and a claim any believer in any religion can make on behalf of his/her god(s) if no proof is required".

297 10/66c: “- - - heavens - - -“. See 2/22d.

298 10/66d: "What do they (non-Muslims*) follow who worship as His (Allah's*) 'partners' other than Allah?" The trouble is that a similar question can be asked about Muslims, as all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran prove that the book is not from a god.

The answer in reality is plain and simple: They simply did not believe in Muhammad and his new religion or in Allah - some of them because they saw that things were very wrong in that religion.

299 10/66e "- - - His (Allah's*) 'partners' - - -". See 25/18a below.

300 10/66f "They (non-Muslims*) follow nothing but fancy - - -". At least if their religion should not happen to be a real one. And what about Muslims? - no god ever made a book of a quality like the Quran, so who made it? - whom or what do they follow?.

301 10/66g: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) do nothing but lie". No comments - except Muhammad knew that even in the Quran he put lies - he f.x. was too intelligent not to know that miracles would give believers.

302 10/67a: "He (Allah*) it is who hath made you Night - - - and Day - - -." Yet another natural phenomenon Muhammad grabs as a "sign"/"proof" for his god - totally invalid as anything as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who causes it. Just another of very many loose and never documented claims in the Quran any believer in any religion can claim for his god(s) - unproved words are that cheap and worthless. And the fact that the Quran only have such logically worthless words for "proofs", is a main reason why Islam so strongly glorifies blind belief and so frequently talks about "instinctive" knowledge, etc., even though man may be the one of the higher animals with least instinctive knowledge. And of what such we after all have got, hardly anything is at any intellectual level, where "instinctive knowledge about god" would have to have been situated. (Another thing is that a small percent of humans - 10% or lower - have a drive for something stronger than oneself to lean to. A drive which perhaps is based on insecurity. But that is a drive, not knowledge - and strong belief in any religion satisfies it). It also is a main reason why Islam so often backbites and derides requests for intellectual or scientific knowledge; as they have no facts to show for themselves, the value of facts and real knowledge must be downplayed and discredited.

303 10/67b: "- - - made you (humans*) Night that ye may rest therein - - -". The night simply is an effect of that Earth is spinning in sunshine, and not something made for that humans shall have a rest. It really is the other way around: Humans - and animals - have adjusted to the fact that there are nights, and adjusted their activity accordingly. Muhammad here simply has the cause/effect 180 degrees wrong.

305 10/67d: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

306 10/67e: “- - - Signs - - -.” See 2/39b.

307 10/67f: "- - - (- - - His (Allah's*) Message (the Quran*))- - -". The Quran is not a message from any god - too many mistakes, too many contradictions, too much invalid logic, too much unclear language, etc. NO omniscient god makes such and so many errors, etc.

308 10/68a: "They (Christians*) say: 'Allah (Muhammad wrongly mixed Yahweh and Allah together*) has begotten a son!'" How could this end up in the "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.

The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".

This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

And as mentioned above, full predestination also makes prayers to Allah meaningless, as everything already is predestined according to Allah's Plan - a Plan which no prayer ("nobody and nothing") can change.

309 10/68b: “Allah hat begotten a son!” An exclamation in disbelief. But Jesus many, many times called God/Yahweh his father (the word “father” (of Jesus) is used for God/Yahweh at least 204 times in NT and the word “son” (of God/Yahweh) is used for Jesus at least 87 times.) Some of the times it is meant figuratively, but most times it is clear it is meant literally. And even the Quran says Jesus was reliable - and both science and Islam have proved that the Bible is not falsified.

310 10/68c: "- - - His (Allah's*) are all things in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth!". Often claimed, never proved - and a claim any believer in any religion can make on behalf of his/her god(s) if no proof is required".

311 10/68d: "- - - His (Allah's*) are all things in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth!". Contradicted by the Bible which tells it all belongs to Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

312 10/68e: “- - - heavens - - -“. Wrong. See 2/22d.

313 10/68f: "No warrant have ye for this!" Wrong. The claim itself may be correct or incorrect, but there is a clear warrant for the statement in the fact that it is said many times by Jesus, witnessed by many witnesses, according to the Bible - and we repeat once more that science and Islam both have proved that the Bible is not falsified (in spite of Muhammad's often repeated, but never documented claims - and statements from a man like Muhammad need documentation (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie, Kitman - the lawful half-truth, etc.). Not one proved case of falsification is found - guess if Islam had screamed about it if there ever was a proved case!

#314 10/68g: "Say ye about Allah what ye know not?" We say very little about Allah, except that he never has proved neither his claimed powers nor his existence. But we say a lot about the Quran, as so many things are wrong in it - and the most essential of those points is that a book with so much wrong, is not from a god. It is heresy and a deep insult and slander to any god to blame him/her for making a book of a quality and an intellectual and scientific level like the Quran. Our educated guess is that every second good writer of historical novels and a good number of other good writers, not to mention scientist of history or religion with "a good pen", could have written a better quality book.

315 10/69a: "Those who invent a lie against Allah - - -". One of Muhammad's many distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

316 10/69b: "Those who invent a lie against Allah will never prosper". Wrong: People who lie, even against gods, often prosper, at least in this world - just look at Muhammad. But if there is a Heaven and a Hell, one may wonder: Where is Muhammad now? - he believed in lies (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie, Kitman - the lawful half-truth, broken promises/oaths, deceit (ibn Ishaq), etc.) And where are all the Muslims who lived according to Muhammad's harsh guidelines from Medina?

317 10/70a: "- - - to Us (Allah*) will be their return (on the Day of Doom*) - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere. And a claim as cheaply made by any believer in any religion on behalf of his/her god(s).

318 10/70b: "- - - to Us (Allah*) will be their return (on the Day of Doom*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells one will return to Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

319 10/70c: "- - - blasphemies". It is not possible to blaspheme against Allah unless he for one thing exists, and for another is a god (if he is from the dark forces which f.x. the partly immoral moral code in the Quran, and its acceptance of dishonesty, its partly unjust laws, its drive for hate- and war-mongering, etc. may indicate, we think blasphemy also is not possible - who can blaspheme dark forces? - and how to do it?).

320 10/70d: "- - - the severest Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

321 10/71a: "- - - the story of Noah". You should beware that the story of Noah in the Quran in many details is different from the one in the Bible - the only perhaps (somewhat?) reliable account of that story. And as the Quran with all its errors, etc. is not from any god - from where did Muhammad get the information or "information"?

322 10/71b: "Behold, he (Noah*) said to his people: 'O my People - - -'". How could this end up in the claimed "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.

The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".

This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

And as mentioned above, full predestination also makes prayers to Allah meaningless, as everything already is predestined according to Allah's Plan - a Plan which no prayer ("nobody and nothing") can change.

323 10/71c: “- - - the Signs of Allah - - -“. There are no logically clear signs/proofs for Allah (or for Muhammad) in all the Quran - or anywhere else. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.

324 10/71d: "- - - I (Noah*) put my trust in Allah". Noah is claimed to be a good Muslim. But there exists no documented or in other ways proved traces of Islam inside or outside the Quran older than 610 AD. A lot of words and claims, but nothing else - and words and claims are very cheap, especially when used for propaganda. And as the Quran with all its errors is not from any god - from where did Muhammad get this information or "information"?

325 10/71e: "- - - I (Noah*) put my trust in Allah". Contradicted by the Bible, which says his god was Yahweh. (But then Muhammad normally, but wrongly, mixes those two gods - or claimed god(s)). Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

326 10/72a: "- - - no reward have I asked of you - - -". This was one of Muhammad's claims about himself, and then it was psychologically wise to "show" that former claimed prophet said the same - it made Muhammad a normal prophet. And Muhammad only claimed 20% of everything stolen, included enslaved victims - 100% if they did not have to fight for it - some 2.5% of all your belongings each and every year in tax (zakat), all fit men as warriors for him whenever he wanted, 100% power, 100% dictatorship, 100% control of what you said and meant. And lots of women (at least 36 are known by name). Of course this was all (except the women?) for Allah, but here on Earth the reality was for Muhammad. Yes, we agree; Muhammad like Noah demanded no reward. Or - - -?

327 10/72b: "- - - I (Noah*) have been commanded to be of those who submit to Allah's Will - - -". See 10/71d above.

328 10/72c: "- - - Allah's Will - - -". The only source for claims about this, is the Quran - a book so full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. that it is from no god - and thus also not from Allah if he is a god. Thus there is no reliable source for Allah's will - even if he should happen to exist. (And we do wonder what is his real will if he belongs to the dark forces - one of the few possibilities if the Quran is from him - the Quran with all its errors, etc. in case proves he is no god.)

329 10/73a: "They (Noah's people*) rejected him (Noah*) - - -". See 10/71b above.

330 10/73b: "They (Noah's people*) rejected him (Noah*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

331 10/73c: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs." See 2/99 and 10/71b above.

332 10/73d: "Then see what was the end of those who were warned (but heeded not)!" Yes, something happened according to the books - but who was behind it? - Yahweh or Allah? - or nature? (One possible explanation is an extreme natural flooding which has been enlarged through retelling over the generations. One has found traces from such a flooding in Iraq some 5-6ooo years ago - roughly at the time of a possible Noah - according to the former popular scientific magazine Lexicon.)

333 10/74a: "Then after him (Noah*) We (Allah*) sent (many) messengers to their Peoples - - -". Hadiths claims that there have been 124ooo messengers/prophets for Allah through the times. Except for the biblical ones (who Muhammad wrongly spoke about Allah) not one single trace has ever been found from any of them - not in history, not in religion, not in architecture/decoration, not in folklore, not in legends, not even in fairy tales older than 610 AD.

334 10/74b: "- - - messengers to their Peoples - - -". Muhammad frequently told that Allah sent the prophets to the people they belonged to - this was an argument for that he was a real prophet, as he was an Arab among Arabs. The claim is only documented for the biblical prophets, where Yahweh MOSTLY sent prophets among their own people.

335 10/74c: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. Wrong if meaning Allah. See 2/99 and 10/71b above.

336 10/74d: "- - - they would not believe what they had already rejected beforehand". A parallel to Muslims? - rejection without even checking neither their blind belief in a religion, or looking into facts.

#337 10/74e: "Thus do We (Allah*) seal the hearts of transgressors." Allah for one thing decides who are going to Hell and who to Heaven when the fetus is 4 months = 5 months before you even are born, and according to many verses in the Quran in addition makes it impossible for many to find the road to Heaven. Yahweh according to NT gives man full free will, but wants everyone to reach Heaven - even the worst persons and even in the last moment if there only is real and honest remorse. The same god? Impossible unless he is strongly ill mentally. One of the many proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet).

338 10/74f: "- - - transgressors". One of the many strongly negative names Muhammad had for non-Muslims. If there was not a strong organization behind the Quran, today it had been prohibited in most civilized countries for incitements to crime (robbing, rape, murder, etc.), suppression, discrimination and apartheid, and for hate mongering and war mongering.

339 10/75a: "- - - after them We (Allah*) sent Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh and his chiefs - - -". Several historical anomalies. See 4/13d above.

340 10/75b: “- - - Our (Allah's) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above. Besides: As in this case the signs really were for Yahweh, they may be valid as signs for him if the old books tell the truth.

341 10/75c: "- - - but they (Pharaoh Ramses II and his chiefs*) were arrogant - - -". See 10/71b above.

342 10/76a: "When the Truth did come to them (Pharaoh Ramses II and his people*) from Us (Allah*) - - -". Here at least there is a contradiction to the Bible - according to the Bible the message was from Yahweh.

343 10/76b: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

344 10/77a: "Said Moses: 'Say - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

345 10/77b: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

346 10/78a: "They (Pharaoh Ramses II and his chiefs*) said: "Hast thou - - -". See 10/71b above.

347 10/78b: "Hast thou (Moses*) come to us to turn us away from the ways we found our fathers following - - -". Contradicted by the Bible: In the Bible there is no religious debate between Moses and Ramses II - only: "Let my people go". (But one may wonder if the reason why Muslims are so reluctant even to check the truth behind all the mistakes in the Quran, is because they are unable to question the indoctrination from their fathers.) Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

348 10/78c: "- - - in order that you (Moses*) and your brother (Aaron*) may have greatness in the land (Egypt*)?" This is not from the Bible. In the Bible there is no conflict about the religion here - there you only find "let my people go". But then much of what is said in the Quran to be from Exodus (= 1. Mos.), is not from the Bible - the only existing source about Exodus (the Jews leaving Egypt under Moses) except for legends and fairy tales.

349 10/78d: "- - - in order that you (Moses*) and your brother (Aaron*) may have greatness in the land (Egypt*)?" YA1463 comments: "Notice how they (Pharaoh Ramses II and his men*) attribute evil motives to the men of Allah, motives of ambitions and lust for power - - -. The same device was used against Al Mustafa (another name for Muhammad*)". For one thing this kind of insinuations from Ramses II is not mentioned in the Bible. But more interesting is that Yusuf Ali here turns the facts upside down: Like so many places the history of real or claimed historical prophets were changed to become parallels to Muhammad's own life and story, to make him look like the old prophets, and thus a normal prophet.

350 10/79a: "Said Pharaoh (Ramses II*): 'Bring me - - -". See 10/71b above.

351 10/79b: "Said Pharaoh (Ramses II*): 'Bring me - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

352 10/80: "When the sorcerer came, Moses said to them - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

353 10/81a: "When they (the sorcerers*) had had their throw, Moses said - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

354 10/81b: "Moses said: 'What ye (sorcerers*) have brought is sorcery. Allah will surely make it of no effect: for Allah prospereth not the work of those who make mischief". This and much more in this story is not from the Bible.

355 10/81c: "- - - Allah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that Moses' god was Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

*356 10/82a: “And Allah by His Words (the Quran*) prove and establish His Truth, - - -”. Wrong. The words of the Quran proves nothing about Allah, until it first is proved that it really was made by Allah, and that Allah really has made and done what the Quran says. It is at best partly the truth only - too many mistakes, contradictions, etc. For similar claims see 2/22 – 3/70 – 5/48 – 6/57 – 7/181 – 8/6 – 10/33 – 10/82 – 11/20 – 13/17 – 23/70 – 34/53 – 47/3 – 54/55.

*357 10/82b: “And Allah by His Words (the Quran*) prove and establish His Truth, - - -”. Actually this sentence is of no consequence here: As all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran proves the book is not from a god, Allah's words are not involved.

358 10/82c: "- - - Allah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that Moses' god was Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

359 10/82d: “- - - and establish his (Allah‘s*) Truth, - - -”. It is well established that a large number of the "facts" in the Quran are wrong. At best the book is partly the truth. At best.

360 10/82e: "- - - His Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

361 10/82f: "- - - sinners - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

362 10/83a: “But none believed in Moses except some children of his People - - -.” Contradiction to the Bible where it is clear that all or most Jews believed him and did like he said.

363 10/83b: “But none believed in Moses except some children of his People - - -.” See 10/71b above.

364 10/83c: “But none believed in Moses except some children of his People - - -.” A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

365 10/83d: (YA1466): “But none believed in Moses except some children of his People - - -.” Who does the word “his” in this sentence refer to? Most Muslim scholars believe to Moses, but not a few to the Pharaoh. And a study of the text will not make you any wiser. Clear language in the Quran?

366 10/83e: "- - - certainly Pharaoh was mighty on the earth - - -". Pharaoh Ramses II was one of the mightiest - if not the mightiest - pharaoh ever in old Egypt. Worse: We know his history pretty well, f.x. that he did not drown. Because of this Muslims wants Exodus (the Jews leaving Egypt) and Moses to have happened earlier under less well known pharaohs which perhaps may have drowned (they often indicate around 1500 - 1600 BC, and never an indication about from where they have the numbers). But science is clear: If Exodus ever happened, it happened around 1235 BC, (sources f.x. Encyclopedia Britannica) which means during the reign of Ramses II.

367 10/84a: "Moses said: 'O my People! - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

368 10/84b: "- - - believe in Allah - - -". According to the Bible only Yahweh was engaged in this story.

369 10/84-86: Moses and the Jews were good Muslims. Try to find this claim in the Bible! (And remember: Science has proved the Bible is not falsified - in spite of Muhammad's never proved claims he had to make to save his religion and his leadership. Islam has thoroughly proved the same by not finding one proved falsification among the tens of thousands of relevant manuscripts.)

370 10/85: "- - - Allah - - - our (the Jews*) Lord". See 10/84b above.

371 10/86a: "- - - Thy (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

372 10/86b: "- - - those who reject (Thee (here indicated Allah*))". One of Muhammad's many distaste - or stronger - inducing names for non-Muslims.

373 10/86c: "- - - those who practice oppression". One of Muhammad's many distaste - or stronger - inducing names for non-Muslims. The name is not a little ironic, as it is the Quran's official goal to conquer and oppress all non-Muslims.

374 10/87a: “Provide dwellings for your (Moses’*) People in Egypt - - -“. Wrong – and a contradiction to reality both according to the Bible and the Quran. According to the Quran the Jews had dwelt for a long time in Egypt, and according to the Bible this long time amounted to 430 years (1. Mos. 12/40). They had dwellings – no reason to tell Moses to provide such ones. Even more silly: Why provide (new) dwellings when all they wanted to do, was to leave Egypt? (A possible reason may be that according to the Bible it took weeks or some months for the Jews to be permitted to leave, in the Quran it took years - cfr. years of bad harvest).

375 10/87b: "- - - make your (new*) dwellings into places of worship - - -". This and a lot more in this story is not from the Bible.

376 10/87c: "- - - establish regular prayers - - -". There nowhere in the Bible is a demand for prayers at fixed times of the day, and neither for a fixed number of prayers a day. The Bible indicates: Pray when there is a reason or a need.

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are thought that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

377 10/87d: “- - - Glad Tidings (indicated to be Islam*) - - -.” At best partly true only - and wrong religion here according to the Bible. See 2/97c above and 61/13 below.

378 10/87e: "- - - those who believe". Muhammad here indicates that the old Jews were Muslims - which they hardly were to use an understatement. Not to mention that it contradicts the Bible not a little.

379 10/88a: "Moses prayed: - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

380 10/88b: "- - - Pharaoh and his Chiefs - - -". A historical anomaly - or actually two. See 4/13d above.

381 10/88c:"- - - they (Ramses II and his people*) mislead (men) from Thy (Allah's*) Path". According to the Bible there were no religious controversy here - only that the Pharaoh did not want to lose so many slaves - slaves after all have a value.

382 10/88d: "- - - send hardness to their hearts, so that they will not believe - - -". Quite a contradiction to the teaching of Jesus, at least (though there are cases in the Bible where Yahweh hardened hearts - included the heart of Pharaoh Ramses II).

383 10/88e: "- - - grievous Penalty". See 3/77b above.

384 10/89a: "Allah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that the god involved was Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

385 10/89b: "Accepted is your prayer (O Moses and Aaron)!". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

386 10/89c: "- - - those who know not". One more of the negative names Muhammad used for non-Muslims.

387 10/89d: "- - - know not". Expressions like this in the Quran, normally means they have not enough knowledge about Islam and the Quran. "Knowledge" in the Quran normally refers only to religious knowledge - and then only to the Quran and Islam.

**388 10/90a: "- - - the Children of Israel - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13 d above - for anyone living before the Jewish patriarch Jacob was renamed Israel by Yahweh (1. Mos. 32/28).

389 10/90b: “At length, when overwhelmed with the flood, he (pharaoh Ramses II*) said: - - -”. We know a lot about Ramses II - he was one of the really great pharaohs, and much material exists from his time. One of the things we know, is that he did not drown (was not “overwhelmed with the flood”) - one of the reasons why Islam wants this to have happened earlier under less known pharaohs who may have drowned.

*390 10/90c: “I (Ramses II) believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in”. One more thing we know about Ramses II (see 10/90), is that he was a polytheist and never a Muslim – and never a Jew.

*391 10/90d: “I (Ramses II) believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in”. This and much more in this story is not from the Bible. As the Quran with all its mistakes is not from a god - from where did Muhammad get this information or "information"?

392 10/90e: "I am of those who submit (to Allah in Islam) (= became a Muslim*)". Wrong: We know Ramses II never became a monotheist - and he lived for years after the Exodus (if it ever happened) and was a polytheist. This also is one reason for why Islam wants Exodus to have happened earlier and under pharaohs we know less about, included no knowledge's about how they died - Islam propose 1500 - 1600 BC f.x, and even earlier. But this conflicts with what science knows about this - science agree on ca. 1235 BC if it ever happened, which means under Ramses II.

393 10/91: "It was said to him (Pharaoh Ramses II*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

394 10/92a: “This day (when the Egyptian army caught up with Moses and the Jews*) shall We (Allah*) save thee (Pharaoh*) in the body - - -.” The expression “in the body” should mean the same as “bodily” or “safe and (relatively at least) sound”. This may be true, as Ramses II did not drown. But it strongly contradicts other verses in the Quran which tells that he drowned. It also must be said that to save the Pharaoh in the very moment of death, would contradict 4/18, which tells it is too late to repent when you know you are about to die.

17/103: “- - - but We (Allah*) drowned him (Pharaoh) and all that were with him.”

28/40: “- - - and We (Allah*) flung them (Pharaoh and his men*) into the sea: now behold what was the End of those who did wrong!”

43/55: “- - - and We (Allah*) drowned them all (Pharaoh and his men*) .”

(4 contradictions).

395 10/92b: "- - - a Sign - - -". See 2/39b above.

396 10/92c: "- - - many among mankind are headless of Our (Allah's*) Signs". With a good reason, as many among mankind know there is not and never was one single proved sign clearly from Allah - not even his very existence is proved, and that the claim that he exists only rests on the word of one single, quite unreliable man who provably and according to the Quran did not even respect his own oaths if breaking them gave a better result (f.x. 2/225a, 5/89a+b, 16/91e, and 66/2a).

397 10/92d: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Signs!” There is not one single sign in the Quran that surely is from Allah. Not one.

**398 10/93a: "- - - the Children of Israel - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13 d above - for anyone living before the Jewish patriarch Jacob was renamed Israel by Yahweh (1. Mos. 32/28).

399 10/93b: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a below.

400 10/93c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

401 10/93d: "Verily Allah will judge between them (the Jews*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells this will be Yahweh's job. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

402 10/94a: "- - - what We (Allah*) hath revealed (the Quran*) unto thee (Muhammad or Muslims*) - - -". No god has revealed a book like the Quran to anyone. For one thing it is too low quality as literature, but mainly: Too much is wrong.

403 10/94b: "- - - those who have been reading the Book (here the Bible*) before thee (Muhammad*)".

404 10/94c: “- - - the Truth (the Quran*) hath indeed come to thee (Muhammad or Muslims*) - - - “. Once more: With so many mistakes, the Quran at best is partly true.

405 10/94d: “- - - the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord (Allah*): - - -”. Also once more: Can a book with that many mistaken facts, be made by a god? Simply no.

406 10/94e: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

407 10/94f: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2a above.

408 10/94g: “- - - be nowise of those in doubt (about Islam*).” With all the mistakes etc. in the Quran, it is sheer naivety not to be in doubt, and at least check the facts.

409 10/94h: "- - - no-vise - - - in doubt". See 2/2b above.

410 10/94i: "- - - be in nowise of those in doubt". With all the errors in the Quran there is every reason to be in doubt. Well, the reality is not "doubt", as all the mistakes, etc. proves something is seriously wrong, and also proves that no god ever was involved. The correct expression for the book thus is "surely wrong".

411 10/95a: "- - - those who reject the Signs of Allah - - -". = Non-Muslims.

*412 10/95b: “- - - the Signs of Allah - - -“. There are no real signs/proofs for Allah in the Quran – only claims not proved statements. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.

413 10/95c: "- - - those who perish". Here: Those who end in Hell. But who ends in Hell when Islam clearly is a made up religion? - at least no god ever was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran. 

414 10/96a: “Those against whom the Word (the Quran*) of thy Lord (Allah*) - - -". The Quran is the word of no god - too many mistakes, etc.

***415 10/96b: “Those against whom the Word of thy Lord has been verified - - -.” This is one of the main problems for Islam – as it was for Muhammad: There exists no verification of Islam – not one single proof, not in the Quran and not any other place. Only cheap words and claims which in NO case are verified. But glorification of and demands for blind belief you find aplenty, and the same with invalid "signs" and "proofs". (Necessary when there is nothing else to build on than the words of a man of very doubtful character and morality. Reliance on untrue arguments and bluffs are strong indicators for a cheat, a deceiver, a swindler.)

Whenever we meet people using bluffs and defending bluffs, not to mention glorifying blind belief – like here – for us that strongly indicates not only that they have no real arguments, but also that they know it themselves, and just try to defend wishful thinking or beliefs they are mentally and morally unable to question.

416 10/96c: "- - - the Word (the Quran*) of thy Lord (Allah*) - - -" No god has made the Quran - see 10/94a.

417 10/96d: "- - - verified - - -". See 2/2b above.

418 10/96-97: “Those (non-Muslims*) against whom the Word of thy Lord (Allah’) hath been verified (the words of Allah = the Quran, have never in any place been verified – there ONLY are the words of Muhammad. Even worse: Muhammad/the Quran use a lot mistaken facts and invalid statements, “signs”, etc. No omniscient god would ever do that*) would not believe, Even if every Sign was brought unto them - - -”. It may be right that they would not believe those signs, if one talks about the signs in the Quran not borrowed from the Bible, because not one of them is logically valid – they are just unproved statements anyone can use about his/her god(s). But real proofs would have had an effect. And Muhammad was more than intelligent enough to know that, and knew this argument was a lie.

419 10/97a: “- - - Sign - - -.” See 2/39b above. It is symptomatic for the Quran to repeat and repeat and repeat the song about the claimed "signs" - it has very little else to put forth.

420 10/97b: "- - - Penalty Grievous". See 3/77b above.

421 10/98a: "Why was there not a single township (among those We (Allah*) warned) who believed". Yes, this is one of the points in the Quran which is not possible to believe: When you see the effects of two handfuls of named prophets, and then are told that 124ooo others left not one single trace anywhere or any time on Earth, the probability for that this claim is true, is zero.

422 10/98b: "- - - the people of Jonah - - -". The Quran here refers to the people of Nineveh, which far from was a township, but a large city - the capital of Assyria. Besides according to the Bible they were not Jonah's people - Jonah was a Jew, the people Assyrians. (But the Quran claims that prophets were sent to their own people, and thus claim "the People of Jonah", as this strengthens Muhammad's claim about being a normal prophet - an Arab among his own people.)

423 10/98c: "- - - the people of Jonah - - -". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

424 10/98d: "When they (the people of Nineveh*) believed, We (here indicated to be Allah*) removed from them the Penalty of Ignominy - - -". How was that possible if Allah has everything predestined according to his Plan which nobody and nothing can change?

425 10/99a: "If it had been thy (Muhammad's or Muslims'*) Lord's (Allah's*) Will - - -". This is an argument you meet again and again and again in the Quran: If Allah only will, he can do everything to show you his existence, power and much more. But for some reasons or other he never "will". A boasting? - similar to what you hear from children, from youths not secure of their social position, and from adults of the same kind needing to boast to enlarge the world's picture of them? They mostly do it in vain, as most people - at least among the intelligent and wise ones - looks straight through boasting and see it for what it is: a slightly - or more - negative fact about the person.

426 10/99b: “If it had been thy Lord’s (Allah’s*) Will, they would all have believed (in Islam*) - all who are on earth!” Far from all believe - not after 1400 years. This either means Allah does not want the majority to believe, but instead go to Hell - or he is not able to make them believe in spite of the big words via (?) Muhammad.

427 10/99c: "If it had been thy (Muhammad's or Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) Will, they would all (all humans*) have believed - - -". When you know the claim that all not good believers will end in Hell and a horrible future, this means Allah is a horrible god - letting so many end up in such a place when he just could have decide that they should be believers and end in Paradise.

428 10/99d: “Wilt thou (Muhammad*) then compel mankind, against their will, to believe!”

Of course he would as soon as he was military strong enough! - lots of people during his time and later were forced to become Muslims. This peaceful verse from Mecca 621 AD soon was abrogated! This verse is abrogated – made invalid - by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 28 abrogations).

429 10/100a: "No soul can believe, except by the Will of Allah - - -." Is it then morally acceptable to condemn all the others to Hell, when their lack of belief is because Allah has decided it so? (according to Hadiths he decides whether to send you to Hell or to Heaven 5 months before you are even born). Very different from NT where everybody have the possibility and are welcome to search for Heaven.

430 10/100b: "No soul can believe, except by the Will of Allah, and He will place Doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand." Similar comment to 10/100a, but much stronger, especially since their inability to understand is because of the brain Allah gave them, and because in spite of a bad quality brain he all the same could have made them believe: Order "Be" and it is for Allah.

431 10/100c: "- - - those who will not understand". Will not understand - or know too much not to see the wrongs in the Quran and Islam?

432 10/101a: "- - - heavens - - -". Wrong. See 2/22d:

###433 10/101b: "- - - neither Signs or Warners profit those who believe not". It is a matter of course that when you understand that claimed "signs" are invalid, you grow skeptical, because who relays on invalid, but claimed "signs"? - the cheat, the swindler, the deceiver. And you have to be very naive or stupid or blind if you take such a person for a warner without checking his claims and words - and when it turns out that everything just are loose words, not documented as loose claims, and as invalid statements - words and claims and statements anyone can use for free as long as he or she can evade any request for proofs - and when it on top of all turns out that the claimed "warner's" tales are so full of mistaken "facts" and other mistakes, contradictions, cases of unclear language, etc. that no god can be involved, it is not possible for a not brainwashed, intelligent person to believe in such stories told by a not reliable person liking power, riches of bribes - and women. You simply do not base your possible next and eternal life on obvious fairy tales made up by dark forces or humans - the only alternatives as no god ever was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran.

434 10/101c: "- - - Signs - - -". See 2/39b.

435 10/101d: "- - - those who believe not". = Non-Muslims - one of Muhammad's many negative names for them.

436 10/102a: "Do they (non-Muslims*) then expect (anything) but (what happened in) the days of the men who passed away before them?" This sentence is rather obscure. But in and around Arabia there were - and are - ruins of old houses, towns and even cities, and there were tales of former people. Muhammad claimed - as normal without any documentation at all - that all of them had been destroyed and killed because they had sinned against Allah (there are a number of more likely explanations in a harsh and warlike area). It is likely this sentence refers to these claims.

437 10/102b: “Wait ye “non-Muslims*) then: For I (Muhammad), to, will wait with you.” A warning.

438 10/103a: "- - - Our (Allah's*) messengers - - -". Muhammad claimed messengers/prophets had been sent from Allah to all times and to all places on Earth - Hadiths mention the number 124ooo. For the prophets he "borrowed" from the Bible this claim clearly is wrong, as the Bible and present-day reality (based on an unbroken tradition and old books) shows that their god was Yahweh, and as both science and Islam clearly has proved that the Bible is not falsified. And for all the rest with the single exception of Muhammad, not one single trace from them has been found in any aspect of life, history, religions, traditions, or even fairy tales.

439 10/103b: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims.

440 10/103c: "- - - thus it is fitting on Our (Allah's*) part that We should deliver those who believe!" Yes, it is very fitting - especially if all Muslims have been led by the nose by a deceiver. But the old fact: It only is possible if Allah exists and in addition is a god of some standing (and not f.x. from the dark forces like among other things his partly immoral moral code, his dishonesty, his lust for and inhuman rules for war and blood, and his partly unjust laws may indicate).

441 10/104a: "Say (Muhammad*): 'O ye men! - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

###442 10/104b: "If ye (non-Muslims*) are in doubt as to my (Muhammad's*) religion - - -". Wrong: When something is proved wrong - like all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran proves the book is not from any god, and thus that something is very wrong - you are not in doubt any more. When something is proved wrong, you know it is wrong - you do not doubt any more.

443 10/104c: "- - - Allah - Who will take your (peoples'*) souls (at death) - - -". One more of the easy claims any believer can make on behalf of his god(s) as long as no proof is necessary.

444 10/104d: "- - - Believers", = Muslims only.

###445 10/104e: "- - - I (Muhammad*) am commanded - - -". Was he really commanded, or did he make up things himself - alone or by means of helpers like contemporary rumors told. And if he was commanded - fully or partly - then by whom? - a sick brain (TLE - temporal Lobe Epilepsy - lime modern medical science believe) or by dark forces like his new religion may indicate? What is 110% sure is that no omniscient god ever was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran, and even more sure: No good and benevolent god ever was involved in an immoral, unjust and inhuman war, apartheid, and hate religion like Islam.

446 10/105a: "- - - (the*) Religion with true piety - - -". Islam only has true piety if the Quran is from a god.

447 10/105b: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

448 10/105c: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". Any non-Muslim. Only Muslims believe according to the Quran. One of Muhammad's many negative and distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

####449 10/106a: "Nor call on any, other than Allah - - -". Why call on Allah when the Quran is very clear on that nobody and nothing - which includes prayers - can change his predestined Plan, and thus that also prayers just is a waste of time and effort which can have no effect?! That prayers can have effect is a contradiction "par excellence" if it is true that Allah predestines everything and does so according to an unchangeable Plan. One of the most serious of the many contradictions in the Quran in case. (And if predestination is not true, where then is Islam?)

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are thought that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

450 10/106b: "- - - such (other gods than Allah*) will neither profit thee (humans*) nor hurt thee - - -". But as the Quran is not from a god - too many mistakes, etc. - the question is: Does this also go for Allah - if he exists?

451 10/106c: "- - - such (other gods than Allah*) will neither profit thee (humans*) nor hurt thee - - -". Well, there f.x. is the impertinent - or pertinent - question about Yahweh, whom even the Quran admits exists, even if it wrongly mixes him with Allah.

452 10/106d: "(If you call on another god than Allah) "you (a human*) shalt certainly be of those who do wrong". This not proved statement only is correct if the Quran is from a god and in addition tells the full truth and only the truth.

453 10/106e: "- - - certainly - - -". See 2/2b above.

454 10/106f: "- - - those who do wrong". One more of the negative names Muhammad uses for non-Muslims.

455 10/107a: This verse contains some more of the many, many, never proved claims you find in the Quran about Allah - claims any person in any religion as easily and as cheaply can use for his own god(s).

456 10/107b: "If Allah do touch thee (humans*) with hurt, there is none (who*) can remove it but He - - -". What about Yahweh? Also see 10/107a just above.

457 10/107c: "- - - if He (Allah*) do design some benefit for thee (humans*), there is none (who*) can keep back His favor - - -". What about Yahweh? Also see 10/107 above.

458 10/107d: "- - - He (Allah*) causeth it (a benefit*) to reach whomsoever of His servants He pleaseth". As the servants of the claimed god Allah goes by the made up book the Quran, they clearly are on wrong tracks and in a doubtful religion. What then if f.x. Yahweh - a god even the Quran admits exists, even though it wrongly mixes him with Allah - opposes the delivery of a benefit? Also see 10/107a above.

459 10/107e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Please read the 22+ surahs from Medina and see if you are able to believe this afterwards - it is impossible, except for some of those who are unable to see other humans than "we, the winners". Also see 1/1a above.

460 10/108a: "Say (Muhammad*): 'O ye men! - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

461 10/108b: “Now truth (the Quran*) hath reached you from your Lord (Allah*)”. See 10/94a above, and 13/1g and 40/75 below.

462 10/108c: “Now truth (the Quran*) hath reached you from your Lord (Allah*)”. No book of a quality like the Quran is from a god.

463 10/108d: "- - - truth - - -". See 2/2b above. And also 13/1g and 40/75 below.

464 10/108e: "Those who receive guidance - - -". = Muslims.

465 10/108f: "- - - guidance - - -". See 16/107 below.

466 10/108g: "- - - those who stray - - -". Non-Muslims - one of Muhammad's many negative names for them. But what about Muslims if the Quran is a made up book? - and it is not from any god.

467 10/108h: “- - - those (“infidels”*) who stray, do so for their own loss, and I (Muhammad*) am (not set) over you to arrange your affair.” Not yet - he did not have the power to do so. But later when he got the power, Muhammad did not only want them to arrange their own affairs – then he wanted them to become Muslims and soldier, so that they could strengthen his own affairs of war and power. This verse is contradicted and often “killed” by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).

368 10/109a: "- - - the inspiration (the Quran - much of it was claimed received "by inspiration"*) - - -". To receive such things "by inspiration" is very convenient if the inspiration is correct, but even more so if you like to add things now and then or if it is all made up. No matter what is the truth about this, what is sure is that it is not sent from a god, which is indicated here - too many mistakes, etc.

469 10/109b: "- - - the inspiration (the Quran - much was claimed received "by inspiration"*) sent unto thee (Muhammad*) - - -". But who in case sent it? - with all those errors it was not from a god. Then remains dark forces/the devil, an illness like TLE (temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like medical expertise believes, or humans - or he himself made up both the verses and the claim that they were sent.

#470 10/109c: "- - - inspiration - - -". It may be worth mentioning that in spite of Muhammad's as normal never documented claims about the opposite, Yahweh in the Bible never uses transfer of information by inspiration. The word is not even mentioned in such a connection in the Bible - not once. Yahweh only used direct contact, visions or dreams. (But as Muhammad claimed he got much of his "information"(?) via inspiration, he many places in the Quran claims - without documentation - that also the old biblical prophets got information that way. A claim which might make Muhammad look more like a normal prophet.)

471 10/109d: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Best to decide." Only if he exists and if the Quran is from a god - and if Allah in addition is a god (and Allah f.x. not from the dark forces - - - if he as questioned exists).

Surah 10: Sub-total = 471 + 6704 = 7175 comments.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Surah 6 is a bit hard on the Quran and on the wishful thinking of Muslims and Islam:

In connection to 6/1a is listed the Quran's hopeless Universe.

In connection to 6/2b is listed the Quran's as hopless creation of man.

In connection to 6/2d: Allah predestines your life and death 5 months before you are born - which means free will of man is an illution and that prayers for help from Allah is meaningless and a waste of time as everything is predestined.

In 6/50 Muhammad confirms he cannot see what is hidden - f.x. the future - documenting that he was no prophet - not knowing the future = unable to make prophesies, and a person unable to make prophesies is no prophet. (F.x. 5. Mos. 18/21 - in the same speech of Moses where Islam claims Moses foresees Muhammad when talking about "a prophet like me" - it is told that a prophet is a person making correct prophesies (if not he is a false prophet) - quite an irony when 18/21 indirectly, but clearly tells Muhammad was not even a prophet (he does not even make prophesies) - he only "borrowed that impressive and imposing title. (And among many others 18/2 tells Moses was speaking about Jewish "brothers" - Islam has cherry-picked and twisted 18/15 and 18/18 in an al-Taqiyya.)

Connected to 6/50 (A6/39): "This denial on the part of the Prophet (Muhammad*) of any claim to supernatural power - - -". This states that Islam admits Muhammad had no supernatural power at all = absolutely no prophet - and no miracles (A6/39 - like other Islamic educated sources - here confirms the miracles claimed in Hadiths, are made up stories).

6/67 states that "Every Message has its time" - an alibi for that the Quran is adjusted for Arabia. A claim which in case kills the claim that the claimed "Mother Book" of which the Quran and all earlier claimed messages are claimed to be exact copies of, is not timeless.

Then 6/91c: "Who then sent down the Book which Moses brought?" This is intended as a rhetoric question with only one possible answer: The god. But as Moses did not get any book(s) both according to the Bible and according to science, this try to make up a "proof" for that Allah might have sent down the Quran, was a total miss. Any god had known this and not made such a flop. Then who made the Quran?

6/91e is one of the places where the documentation for that the Bible is not falsified - in spite of strong claims in the Quran. Out goes Muhammad's only possible "explanation" for that what he wrongly claims the Bible says, may be true.

In connection to 6/106 (6/106b) Allah's very existence is doubted.

In connection to 6/108 "The Message of the Quran" (comment6/93) explains "- - - it is in the nature of man to regard the beliefs which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his local environment, as the only true and possible ones" - which explains in details why Muslims believe in spite of all facts proving something is seriously wrong with the religion.

In 6/148 (and other places) it is showed once more that Muhammad just "borrowed" the imposing and impressive title "Prophet" - he was unable to make prophesies, and thus in reality was not a prophet.

In connection to 6/149a (A6/141) Islam has to admit that the claim that Allah decides everything - predestination - is impossible to combine with the claimed free will for man (and without free will it is morally wrong to punish man for sins). But "it all the same must be true, because Allah says so (in the Quran*)" - the ultimate defeat for brain against blind belief.

And in 6/151 may be the most well-known of the mistakes in the Quran accepted by Islam to be a mistake: "You are prohibited from - - - being good to your parents" (well, may be "Mary, sister of Aaron" is even more well-known, but that one is frequently tried explained away).

Islam a nice future for our grandchildren?
