1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 113 -- AL-FALAQ (The Day-break)

Revelation: Year unknown; Perhaps early Mecca.

(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.

002 113/1a: “- - - the Lord (Allah*) of the Dawn - - -“. In reality Allah is not god for anything, unless he exists - - - and unless he in addition is a god.

003 113/1b: (YA6302): “- - - the Lord of the Dawn - - -“. At least 3 meanings according to Islamic scholars: 1) The daybreak. 2) The (possible) escape from religious ignorance. 3) Non-existence contra existence.

Clear and easy to understand language in the Quran?

004 113/2-5: Different things you can pray to Allah for help against - but in vain unless Allah exists and in addition is a good and benevolent god.
