1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 20 -- Ta Ha

Revelation: Mecca, 614 - 615

(See general comments on Surahs here: Introduction)

(Meaning of this surah is unclear. It may be of the mysterious letters which starts many of the surahs - see 11/1a above. Or it may mean "O man!" in two Arab dialects, but this in case has no relevance to the text.)


 

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 20/1: "Ta Ha". See our heading over this surah.

003 20/2a: “We (Allah*) have not sent down the Quran - - - to be (an occasion) for - - - distress - - -“. The main fact is that Allah (if he exists) did not send it down at all – no omniscient god makes that many and that obvious mistakes, etc.

004 20/2b: “We (Allah*) have not sent down the Quran to thee (Muhammad*) to be (an occasion) for thy distress - - -“. The main question here is: Was anything sent down to Muhammad at all? All the errors make involvement by a god impossible and a devil unlikely - even a devil would not use means so easy to look through (if not the god forced him in order to give the humans a better chance to look through the trap). If nothing supernatural was involved, there remains mental illness (TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, which is the suspicion of modern medical science), or accomplices or a cold manipulation from Muhammad himself - he had plenty of motifs in case: Power, riches for bribes for more power - and women.

005 20/3a: "(The Quran is meant*) only as an admonition to those who fear (Allah) - - -". Look at the Islamic societies and look at Islamic history - has the Quran been an admonition? - and especially if the Quran is a made up book like it seems to be with all its mistaken facts, etc. which make it impossible it is from any god.

006 20/3b: "- - - those who fear Allah - - -". = Muslims.

007 20/4a: (The Quran is*) “A revelation from Him (Allah*) - - -”. The unanswered question is: Would an omniscient god send down a book with so many mistakes? - not to mention if he would have it as a not perfect, but all the same deeply respected Mother Book in his perfect Paradise? There is an answer: Either it is wrong that Allah sent it down, or it is wrong that Allah is omniscient - if he exists.

008 20/4b: (The Quran is*) “A revelation from Him (Allah*) Who created the earth and the heavens (plural and wrong*) of high”. This creation is often claimed in the Quran, but never documented anywhere - like in many other religions. Also see 11/7a above.

009 20/4c: "- - - revelation - - -". See 4/47c, 5/59c, 15/1b above.

010 20/4d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

011 20/5a: "(Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

012 20/5b: "(Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority)". Frequently claimed like this or in other ways, but never one single valid proof for it - only Muhammad's never documented words. And even Islam describes Muhammad as a doubtful character if you look away from all the glorious propaganda words, and judge from what he in reality demanded and did - words are cheap, deeds are reliable.

013 20/5c: "(Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority)". Contradicted by the Bible which says that there sits Yahweh, not Allah. 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.

014 20/6a: "To Him (Allah*) belongs all what is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved. See 20/5b just above.

015 20/6b: "To Him (Allah*) belongs all what is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that this belong to Yahweh, not to Allah. 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.

016 20/6c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

017 20/7a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

018 20/7b: "- - - He (Allah*) knoweth what is secret and what is yet more hidden". So take care and be good and be obedient. A reminder and a warning - there are many similar, and we mention some of them. Also see 2/233h above.

019 20/8a: "There is no god but He (Allah*)!" See 2/255a and 6/106b above,

020 20/8b: "To Him (Allah*) belong the Most Beautiful Names." Please read the Medina surahs and the most unjust sharia laws and afterwards think it over if f.x. names like "Most Merciful" or "Most Forgiving" really belongs to him. (Just to mention it: According to the Quran, Allah has 99 beautiful names - by co-incidence not one of them is Yahweh, even though the Quran wrongly claims Yahweh and Allah are the same god. But maybe it is no co-incidence that that name is missing?).

021 20/9a: "Has the story of Moses reached thee (people*)?" The story of Moses in the Quran is a lot different from the one in the Bible - especially the details, not to mention the story concerning the wise man al-Khird, which does not exist in the Bible at all. From where did Muhammad get the additional information (not from a god - too much is wrong in the Quran far a god to have been involved).

022 20/9b "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

023 20/10: "- - - perhaps I (Moses*) can bring you (his family*) some burning brand therefrom - - -". What for? - the nomads mastered the "mysteries" of the fire.

024 20/11: "O Moses!" A historical anomaly.

025 20/12a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

026 20/12b: "Verily I (here the Quran talks about Allah) am thy (Moses*) Lord!". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells it was Yahweh - another god in spite of Muhammad's claims, as the teachings fundamentally are too different.

027 20/12c: "- - - thou (Moses*) art in the sacred valley of Tuwa". This may or may not be contradicting the Bible. The Bible says it happened near the mountain of Horeb, but there may have been a valley named Tuwa there. But from where did Muhammad get this information - the name is not mentioned in the Bible? As no god ever was involved in a book so full of mistakes like the Quran, there remains: 1) Dark forces. 2) A mental illness like f. ex. TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like modern medical science suspect. 3) Apocryphal (made up) scriptures, legends and fairy tales - Muhammad/the Quran often used such "sources". 4) Fantasy.

28 20/12d: But is the Arab word "tuwan" the name of "the hallowed valley" - Tuwa? According to A20/9 the word "tuwan" or "tiwan" - remember that the Quran originally was written without the vowels so you have to guess them - also can mean "twice" or "twice done". In this case it does not mean the valley of Tuwa, but something like "the twice hallowed valley". Muslims are very right when they claim that the language in the Quran is easy and not to be misunderstood - except all the times they are wrong.

029 20/13: "- - - the inspiration sent to thee (Moses*)- - -". There is nowhere told in the Bible that Moses - or any other of the prophets in the Bible - got orders or information from the god by inspiration. (But Muhammad needed conformation for that his own claimed inspirations were normal ways of contact from his claimed god).

Actually it is said in the Bible that to Moses Yahweh spoke directly (4. Mos. 12/8). To some of the other prophets he also spoke directly - at least sporadically - but but for that he used visions or dreams, not inspiration (4. Mos. 12/6). Another indication for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - they used different means of communication.

030 20/14a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

031 20/14b: "Verily, I am Allah - - -". We guess the Bible will disagree here.

032 20/14c "- - - there is no god but I (Allah*) - - -". See 2/255a and 6/106b above.

033 20/14d: "- - - regular prayers - - -". One of the 100+% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god: For Allah the 5 prayers a day were so essential that he made them one of the pillars of Islam. Yahweh did not even bother to mention such a formality (not once in the entire Bible) - pray when there was a reason or a need or a wish to do so.

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.)

034 20/15a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

035 20/15b: "- - - the Hour - - -". = The Day of Doom.

036 20/15c: (YA2546): “My (Allah’s*) design is to keep it (the Day of Doom*) hidden - - -.” But the Arab word “ukhfi” may mean “hidden” or “manifest”. Then you get the alternative meaning: “My design is to make it manifest”. Choose what you like.

40/25: “(The Pharaoh said 80 (?) years later): ‘Slay the sons of those who believe with him (Moses*), and keep alive their females - - -.” (This is one of the places in the Quran where the story “hangs in the air” – like the one about the camel of Thamud – and Muslims who do not know the books well, are excused from perhaps believing his mother put the baby Moses into the river just because the god ordered it so. Because of the bad authorship behind the Quran on this point – to tell a story in such way that essential points are in the dark, is bad authorship – and because Muslims are excused from being unable to see this very real contradiction before, we will not count it.)

037 20/15d: "- - - every soul to receive its reward by the measure of its Endeavour". But in case from which god - if there is a god? There is no reliable information about Allah, except that before Muhammad he was the pagan main god in Arabia. Because of all the errors in the Quran and because of the very doubtful ethics and moral of the one (Muhammad) dictating it, the reliability of the claims also about Allah in that book, is far below what any scientist or reliable judge will accept.

038 20/15e: "- - - every soul to receive its reward by the measure of its Endeavour". In the Quran a main question for the claimed next life is the balance of your good contra bad deeds - and the best of deeds was to go to war for Muhammad (Allah?) and destroy, steal, take captives for extortion, etc., and later also to force Islam on them and Iblis take the abrogated flagship 2/256: "Let there be no compulsion in religion". In especially NT the main way to salvation is the love and forgiving from Yahweh, as much as good deeds, though they count.

039 20/16a: “- - - let not such as believe not therein (in the Quran and/or the Day of Doom*) but follow their own lusts, divert thee (Muslim*) therefrom - - -.” No, it is much better to be a Muslim - mistakes in the Quran or not (even though they prove that something is very wrong in the Quran).

040 20/16b: "- - - such as believe not therein (in the Quran and/or the Day of Doom*) - - -". One of Muhammad’s many negative names for non-Muslims.

041 20/16c: “- - - let not such as believe not therein (in the Quran*) but follow their own lusts, divert thee (Muslim*) therefrom, lest thou perish.” You in case only perish if the Quran is correct in all and everything. That is to say: Even if the Quran is wrong, you may perish if the other god(s) you happen to believe in, does/do not exist. This in case also include the Muslims if Allah is a made up god - or incorrectly described.

042 20/17: "- - - O Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

043 20/18: "He (Moses*) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

044 20/19: "- - - O Moses!" A historical anomaly.

045 20/18: "He (Moses*) threw it - - -". A historical anomaly.

046 20/22a: "(Moses' hand should be*) white (and shining), without harm (or stain) - - -". Contradiction to the Bible, which tells his hand would be white and leprous - quite a different picture (1. Mos. 4/6). And once more there was no reason for the Jews to falsify a point in the Bible - a shining hand would be much more imposing and dignified for their great ancestor, than one of leprosy (though the healing of the leprosy afterwards would be a stronger proof for that something supernatural was involved - remember that leprosy was an illness reckoned to be very bad in the old times).

047 20/22b: "- - - another Sign - - -". This is indicated to be a sign for Allah. Even if we omit the fact that the Bible disagree and says it was a sign from Yahweh, there remains the other fact that there never - never - was one single unmistakable sign (Quran-speak for proof for Allah) from or for Allah. For Yahweh plenty, if the old books tell the truth, but never anything for or from Allah. (And remember: In spite of Muhammad's claims the two gods were not the same one - their teachings fundamentally were too different.)

048 20/23a: "- - - (two) of Our (according to the Quran: Allah's) Greater Signs - - -". According to the Bible there were 3 signs - these two + turning water to blood (2. Mos. 4/9).

049 20/23b: "- - - Our (according to the Quran: Allah's) Greater Signs - - -." There do not and never did exist signs clearly proving Allah - neither small nor great (Islam admits this, but does not talk about it - on the contrary they use al-Taqiyya and tell their congregations about the made up miracles, etc. which the Quran proves are not true, and which Islam also admits are not true by admitting that "there are no miracles connected to Muhammad, except the making of the Quran". It actually is unbelievable that Islam are able to make their followers believe in claims - claimed miracles - which the "holy" book proves are wrong, even though they also themselves say that the claimed miracles are not true. But then one of the "signatures" for blind belief is belief not because of proofs, but in spite of being proved wrong). Also see 2/39b.

050 20/24a: "- - - Pharaoh - - -". If this ever happened, it happened around 1235 BC according to science - which means during the Reign of Ramses II. But no matter which pharaoh, it is a historical anomaly.

051 20/24b: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

052 20/25: "(Moses*) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

053 20/26-35: Muhammad tries to get an easier task.

054 20/29: "And give me (Moses*) a Minister from my family - - -". In the Bible it only is a question of a spokesman.

055 20/36a: "(Allah) said - - -". We just remind you that according to the Bible the involved god was Yahweh, not Allah.

056 20/36b: "- - - O Moses!". A historical anomaly.

057 20/37: "- - - We (Allah*) conferred a favor on thee another time (before)." This refers to the saving of Moses as a baby - described in 20/38-40 in the Quran and in 2. Mos. 2/3-10 in the Bible.

058 20/38: "- - - by inspiration - - -". There is nowhere told in the Bible that Moses' mother got orders or information from the god, neither by inspiration, nor by any other way (2. Mos. 2/2-4). (But Muhammad needed conformation for that his own claimed inspirations were normal ways of contact from his claimed god). Also see 26/52a below.

**059 20/39: In this verse the mother of Moses is ordered by the god to set her baby adrift on the Nile - no reason given. You find the reason in the Bible (2. Mos. 1/22). The vagueness on far too many details is one of the reasons why the Quran evaluated as literature is not god - the same goes for the fact that far too many places where details are given, they only are claims, even though they are referred to like being facts. Pretending that claims are facts is not good literature, except sometimes in fiction.

060 20/40a: "- - thy (Moses*) sister (Miriam*) - - -". 2 historical anomalies.

061 20/40b: "- - - tried - - -". Why does an omniscient, predestining god need to test anyone? - if it then was not Muhammad who heeded "proof" for that testing was normal.

062 20/40c: "- - - O Moses!". A historical anomaly.

063 20/42: "- - - My (Allah's) Signs - - -". Correction according to the Bible: Yahweh's, not Allah's, signs (the two gods are not the same one, no matter what the Quran claims, but never proves, as the teachings are fundamentally too different - - - and the Bible is not falsified about this, too - claims about falsification of the Bible being the Islamic wonder medicine against all mistakes compared to this book. Mistakes perhaps, but no falsification according to solid documentation by science, and actually also by Islam).

064 20/43a: "- - - Pharaoh (here Ramses II*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

065 20/43b: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

066 20/44: "- - - he (Ramses II*) may take a warning or fear (Allah*)". There is not one sign of any kind in any kind of science indicating that the claimed god Allah was known in Egypt around 1235 BC, and thus no reason to believe Ramses II would fear him.

067 20/45: "They (Moses and Aaron) - - -". 2 historical anomalies.

068 20/46: "- - - I (Allah) hear and see (everything)". Then why does he have to test anyone?!

069 20/47a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

070 20/47b: “Verily we (Moses and Aaron*) are messengers sent by thy (Ramses II’s*) Lord (Allah*) - - -“. Wrong – Ramses II was a polytheist. Besides: He might have heard about Yahweh (but would not respect the god of slaves very much), but never about Allah.

071 20/47c: "- - - a Sign - - -". This is indicated to be a sign for Allah. Even if we omit the fact that the Bible disagree and says it was a sign from Yahweh, there remains the other fact that there never - never - was one single unmistakable sign from or for Allah. For Yahweh plenty if the old books tell the truth, but never anything for or from Allah.

072 20/47d: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

073 20/47e: “- - - we (Moses and Aaron*) come from thy (Ramses II’s*) Lord (Allah*)!” See 20/47a just above.

074 20/47f: "And peace to all who follow guidance (here indicated Allah/Islam)!" For one thing every indication tells that Islam was totally unknown at that time - in Egypt and everywhere else. For another the Bible says that the involved god was Yahweh, not Allah.

075 20/47g: "- - - guidance - - -". We are a little in the twilight zone when we are commenting on Moses, because the Quran to a degree follows the Biblical story, but mixing Allah with Yahweh, and with unknown details (wherever Muhammad got them from, as the Bible is the only source, except legends, fairy tales and fantasy - Muslims claim he got them from the god, but a book of a quality like the Quran is from no god.). But here it clearly is meant guidance from Allah = something similar to the Quran, but nothing similar to the Quran gives reliable guidance - too much is wrong. Also see 2/2b, 7/192a, and 16/107b above.

076 20/48a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

077 20/48b: "Verily it has been revealed to us (Moses and Aaron*) that the Penalty (awaits) those who reject (guidance (= Islam*)) and turn away". In the Bible there is no religious debate - only the demand to let the Jews go.

078 20/49a: "- - - (Pharaoh) - - - Moses - - -". 2 historical anomalies.

079 20/49b: "(Pharaoh) said: 'Who then, O Moses - - -'". 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 or happened? 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.

Also see 3/154e, 6/149a, 7/34a, and 14/22b above.

080 20/49c: "Who then, O Moses, is the Lord of you two?". The Jews had been in Egypt 430 years according to the Bible. Islam claims 100 - 300 years. (The Quran says that the Pharaoh drowned. We know that Ramses II did not drown, and Islam, therefore, needs to find a pharaoh who can have drowned, and therefore tries to move it backwards to more unknown pharaohs who can have died that way - if not something is seriously wrong with the Quran, as a god does not make mistakes in his holy book. (Also the Bible says he drowned, but the Bible is written by humans, and humans can make mistakes - f.x. mistaken one of Ramses II's generals or many (67?) sons for the pharaoh.)) After even 100 years the ruling pharaoh would know who was the god of a big group in his country like the Jews. The question is not logical.

081 20/50a: "Our (Moses*) Lord (here intended to be Allah*) - - -". The Bible says that Moses' god was Yahweh, not Allah.

082 20/50b: "- - - guidance (here indicated Islam*) - - -". This "guidance" is built on the Quran, which is claimed to be a copy of a "Mother Book" in Heaven. Islam claims the earlier prophets god a similar copy of this eternal "Mother Book". No copy similar to the Quran is a reliable guide.

083 20/50-54: A religious debate. No such debate is reported in the Bible - there the thing simply was the demand to let the Jews go.

084 20/51a: "(Pharaoh) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

085 20/51b: "(Pharaoh) said: What is then - - -". See 20/49c above.

086 20/51c: "What then is the condition of previous generations?" Ramses II asks if Moses means earlier Egyptians - polytheists - now were in Heaven or Hell. Such a debate is not mentioned in the Bible. From where did Muhammad get these details? As the Quran is not from a god, the alternatives are: From dark forces. From old tales. From his possible illness (TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy). From a scheming brain.

087 20/52a: "- - - duly recorded - - -". Why does a predestining and omniscient god need records? Also see 20/52b just below.

088 20/52b: "- - - (Allah*) never errs, nor forgets - - -". Why then does he have to test people? And why does he need records?

089 20/53a: ”He Who has made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; - - -”. In the Quran the Earth is flat. May be round like a pancake, but in case definitely flat - not like a sphere. That is what Muhammad believed, as that is what geography was like at his time - but a god had known it was wrong. (Actually there are 7 Earths according to the Quran (65/12) - one on top of the other according to Hadiths.) See also 2/22(?), 15/19, 43/10, 71/19, 79/30, 88/20.

090 20/53b: "- - - He (Allah*) has sent down rain from the sky". See 11/7a above.

091 20/53c: "With it (water*) have We (Allah*) produced pairs of diverse plants - - -". At least mostly wrong, as most plants do not exist in pairs - "male" and "female" parts are at the same plant, more often in the same flower. There exist some which comes in pair though. But it may seem like Muhammad did not know, because he say a similar thing at least one more place in the Quran, and there more definitely ("fruits in pairs").

092 20/54a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

093 20/54b: “- - - in these (plants and cattle and food*) are Signs (Quran-speak for proofs for Allah) for men endued with understanding.” There are no real signs in the Quran – not for Allah, not for Muhammad’s religion, not for Muhammad’s connection to a god. The only signs “men endued with understanding” gets from sentences like this in the Quran, is the question: Why did Muhammad have to use invalid proofs and twisted logic, and the conclusion: Muhammad’s use of invalid arguments proves that he had no real arguments/facts – if he had had, he had used them instead. And actually there is one more point: The use of made up claims and statements are the hallmarks of a cheat and a swindler.

094 20/54c: “- - - for men endued with understanding.” See 13/3j above.

095 20/55a: “From the (earth) did We (Allah*) create you (man*) - - -.” But: This is contradicted by 6/2, 7/12, 17/61, 32/7, 38/71, and 38/76 that tell man/Adam was made from clay, 15/26, 15/26, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from sounding clay, 55/14 that tells man/Adam was made from ringing clay, 37/11 that tells man/Adam was made from sticky clay, 23/12, that tell man/Adam was made from essence of clay, 15/26, 15/28, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from mud, 3/59, 22/5, 35/11, 40/67, that tell man/Adam was made from dust, 96/2 that tells man/Adam was made from a clot of congealed blood, 16/4, 75/37, 76/2, 80/19, that tell man/Adam was made from semen (without explaining from where the semen came), 21/30, 24/45, and 25/54 that tell man/Adam was made from water (NB! NB! Not in water, but from water!), 70/39 that tells man/Adam was made from “base material”. (Also see verse 6/2 in the chapters about the 1000+ mistakes in the Quran.) (Strictly reckoned this contradicts 30 other verses. But minimum 11 contradictions.)

096 20/55b: “From the (earth) did We (Allah*) create you (man*) - - -!. See 11/7a above and 21/56c below.

097 20/55c "From it (earth) shall We (Allah*) bring you out once again". This interesting claim once more. Interesting because Allah never has proved his power over death - yes, he has not proved any kind of power at all, and not even his own existence - Muhammad had lot of big words about his god, but he never was able to prove a single comma even (like many other self-proclaimed "prophets" through the centuries). Whereas if the old books tell the truth, Yahweh, Jesus, and even Paul really proved it (Matt. 27/52, Mark 5/41, John 11/44, Luke 7/15, not to mention the resurrection of Jesus himself, f. ex. Matt.28/6.) Also see 7/158i above.

098 20/55d: "From it (earth) shall We (Allah*) bring you out once again". Contradicted by the Bible. which says this will be done by Yahweh, not by Allah. 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.

099 20/56a: "- - - Pharaoh - - -". A historical anomaly.

100 20/56b: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -". See 2/39b and 20/42 above.

101 20/57a: "He (Ramses II*) said: 'Hast thou (Moses*) come to drive us (Ramses II*) out of our land - - -'". See 20/49b above.

102 20/57b: "Hast thou (Moses*) come to drive us (Ramses II*) out of our land - - -". In the Bible there is nothing like this - the only topic was "Let my people go". As the Bible is the only source about Moses, and as there was no god involved in making the Quran with all its errors (in spite of Islam’s many, but never proved statements and claims) one may wonder from where Muhammad got this new information(?).

103 20/57c: "Hast thou (Moses*) come to drive us (Ramses II*) out of our land - - -". As said there is nothing like this in the Bible. But also in the Quran there is nothing which could give Ramses II - or his advisers - suspicions like this. This part of the debate is illogical.

104 20/57d: "- - - O Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

105 20/59a: "Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

106 20/59b: "Moses said: 'Your (Ramses II*) tryst is the Day of the Festival, and let the people be assembled when the sun is well up". Not in the Bible - see 20/57b+c above,

107 20/60a: "The Pharaoh (Ramses II) withdrew - - -". From an audience with a pharaoh it is not the pharaoh who withdraws - and definitely not from a mighty potentate of the East like Ramses II. This is aid by someone who did not know about or forgot about the formalities at such a court. No god would make such a break of rules. Then who made the Quran?

108 20/60b "- - - Pharaoh - - -". A historical anomaly.

109 20/61a: "Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

110 20/61b: "Forge not ye (Ramses II*) a lie against Allah - - -". Most of the details in this story are different from the Bible, included this. See 20/57b+c above.

111 20/61b: "- - - Allah - - -". The Quran uses Allah many places where Yahweh had been correct according to the Bible - we just mention it, even though most non-Muslims see this without any help.

112 20/61c: "- - - lest He (here indicated Allah*) destroy you - - -". Well, Allah has not proved the power of destroying anything at all in all the time since Pharaoh Ramses II and till now. Lots of claims, but no proved case (guess if Muslims had told about it if such a case had existed!"

113 20/63a: "They (the Egyptians*) said: "These are certainly - - -". See 20/49b above.

114 20/63b: "- - - their (Moses, Aaron*)object is to drive you (Ramses II) out from your land - - - etc.". Not from the Bible - there Moses' only topic was "Let my people go". See 20/57b+c above.

115 20/63c: Grammatical mistake: haazaani should be haazayn.

116 20/64: "- - - he wins (all along) today who gains the upper hand". This is nonsense both military and realistically spoken. No matter what happened Ramses II had the control - he was too powerful to win over in just such a small confrontation. Which also the result of it shows - according to both the Quran and even more the Bible, it took a lot more - and very much tougher means - before he gave in (2. Mos. Ch. 7-11).

117 20/65: "They (the Egyptians*) said: "O Moses! - - -". See 20/49b above.

118 20/66-69: Roughly the same which happened according to the Bible, but nearly none of the detail are from there.

119 20/69: (YA2591): “And the magician thrives not, (no matter) where he goes”. An unclear sentence with at least 2 possible meanings according to Islamic scholars: A: Falsehood and trickery may win sometimes, but often not. Or B: Trickery and magic must come to an evil end. Clear language in the Quran?

#####120 20/69-70a: The magicians of the pharaoh all became Muslims when they saw Moses performing real miracles. All the same the Quran - and Muhammad - repeats and repeats and repeats that the reason why Muhammad was unable to perform miracles, included making real prophesies, was that nobody would believe anyhow. This is one of the scenes which make it clear that Muhammad knew he was lying each time he used those excuses and “explanations”. That no-one would believe if they witnessed miracles, contradicts all psychological knowledge – strengthened by the fact that Muhammad himself told it worked. He also knew at least some of the miracles Jesus performed, and all the followers they brought him. Contradiction both of Muhammad's intelligence - he was too intelligent not to know it was a lie - of reality, and of science.

121 20/69-70b: The magicians of the pharaoh all became Muslims when they saw Moses performing real miracles. Not in the Bible. See 20/57b+c above.

##122 20/70a: “So the magician were thrown down to prostration (because Moses had done a real miracle*): they said: ‘We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses (because they had seen the miracle*).” But Muhammad contradicted this effect:

****Muhammad many times in the Quran explains that the reason for that he/Allah would/will make no miracles, was that it would not make anyone believe anyhow – AND HERE ALL THE MAGICIANS BECAME BELIEVERS BECAUSE OF JUST ONE SMALL MIRACLE. (This is one of the reasons why one knows Muhammad knew he was lying each time he used this excuse – he had himself told that miracles worked.)

(At least 5 contradictions).

123 20/70b: "- - - they said: ‘We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses - - -". See 20/49b above.

124 20/70-76: This is not from the Bible. From where is it? (But it fits Muhammad's standard concept for Muslims contra non-Muslims very well. Little or no creative fantasy gives little variety and a boring result. No god literature - Muslims saying the Quran is excellent literature simply have not an idea what they are talking about. But not unlikely mullahs and religious scholars have read little real literature from good writers.

125 20/71a: "(Pharaoh) said: "Believe ye in - - -" See 20/49b above.

126 20/71b: "Surely this (Moses*) must be your (magicians'*) leader - - -". Here something is wrong. Moses had grown up in the same circles as the pharaoh (Ramses II). Ramses knew him and his history and knew he had been far away for 40 years (though unspecified in the Quran - much is lacking of information in the Quran; a hallmark on medium and low quality literature. A good writer also knows his details - just see the difference between a good writer and a piece in a young girls' romantic magazine (as literature much of the Quran is not of higher standard than that, even though the language itself is polished and thus likely better in the original - but that does not make it better as literature).

127 20/71c: "- - - I (Ramses II*) will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides - - -". If our sources are correct, Egypt at that time did not use this Arabian kind of punishment.

*128 20/71d: “- - - I (Pharaoh Ramses II*) will have you crucified - - -”. If not our sources are very wrong, Egypt at that time did not crucify people.

129 20/72a: "They said: 'Never shall we (the magicians*) regard - - -". See 20/49 above.

130 20/72b: "Never shall we (the magicians*) regard thee (Ramses II*) as more than the Clear Signs - - - etc." Not in the Bible - just like much more in this story (we do not comment on all of it). See 20/57b+c above.

131 20/72c: "- - - Him (here indicated Allah*) who created us (the magicians of Ramses II*) - - -". See 6/2b above and 21/56c below.

132 20/72d: "- - - Clear Signs - - -." See 2/39b and 20/42 above.

133 20/73a: "- - - we (the magicians of Ramses II*) have believed in or Lord (here indicated Allah*) - - -". Wrong, as Allah was unknown in the old Egypt. Yahweh might have been possible - information from the Jews - but not Allah.

134 20/73b: "- - - may He (Allah*) forgive us (the magicians of Ramses II*) our faults - - -". All the other things aside; Allah only can forgive if he exists and is a real god.

135 20/73c: "- - - for Allah is Best and Most Abiding". Allah was not known at that time - some 2ooo years before Muhammad No traces of such a god or religion has ever been found there.

136 20/73-76: Not in the Bible - see 20/57b+c above.

137 20/74a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

138 20/74b: "- - - (- - - sins) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. We also may mention that just this word often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, than in more normal religions (Islam is a religion of war - in spite of its loud slogans), not to mention how much its meaning in the Quran often differs from the basic of all human moral; "do against others like you want others do against you". Read the surahs from Medina and weep.

One small remark: As Yahweh's religion and f.x. moral code at many points are totally different from Allah's, you may qualify for Yahweh's Paradise even if Muslims condemn you to Hell - if both exists.

139 20/75a: "But such (people*) as come to Him (Allah*) as Believers who have worked righteous deeds - for them are ranks exalted". If Allah exists and is a major god. And if the Quran has described him correctly.

140 20/75b: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

141 20/75c: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

142 20/76a: "Gardens of Eternity - - -". = Paradise. Also see 10/9f above.

143 20/76b: "Gardens of Eternity - - -". Beware that 11/108c may indicate it is not quite for eternity.

144 20/76c: "Gardens of Eternity, beneath which flow rivers - - -". The most used Arabism in the Quran - see 4/13d above.

145 20/76d: "- - - they (good Muslims*) will dwell therein (Paradise*) for aye - - -". See 20/76b and 11/108c above.

146 20/76e: "- - - those who purify themselves (from evil)". Muslims.

147 20/76f: "- - - (- - - evil)". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

148 20/77a: "- - - inspiration - - -". Not from the Bible - but it might have been handy for Muhammad to "document" that his own claimed means for his claimed contact with his god was normal for prophets. Also see 20/57a+b above. Actually Yahweh never used inspiration for transferring messages - only Muhammad claimed that. He used direct contact, visions or dreams (4. Mos.12/6-8).

There is an extra irony in the fact that the Bible directly specifies that to Moses Yahweh used to speak directly (4. Mos. 12/8).

149 20/77b: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

150 20/77c: "- - - strike a dry path for them (the Jews*) through the sea - - -". In the Bible this was not told to Moses until when he had to do it.

151 20/77d: "- - - overtaken (by Pharaoh) - - -". A historical anomaly.

152 20/77e: "- - - Pharaoh - - -". A historical anomaly.

153 20/77bf "- - - Pharaoh - - -". A historical anomaly.

*154 20/78a: “Then the Pharaoh pursued them with his forces - - -". See 20/49b above.

*155 20/78b: “Then the Pharaoh pursued them with his forces, but the waters completely overwhelmed them and cover them up”. May be the water covered up the troops, but not the Pharaoh - - - Ramses II did not drown, and he did not die until years later according to science. Another thing: They most likely did not cross the Red Sea proper. The original Hebrew Bible in reality uses a name that also has the meaning “Sea of Reeds”. The Sea of Reeds - also named Timsah Lake - was a big, shallow lake south of the Bitter Seas in the area where you now find the Suez Canal. For Moses to walk past a big lake with his some 2 million Jews (600ooo men + women and children according to the Bible) and belongings and animals is one thing. To march down the western side of the Red Sea and plan to cross that sea by boats they did not have, is quite another thing – remember that they did not know that Yahweh would split the sea (and most of them hardly had believed it if they had been told). The fact that the Hebrew name for the sea they crossed (?) – Yam Suph – also means “the Sea of Reeds” is mentioned in footnotes many times in NIV – and in other literature. Similar claims that all – included the pharaoh drowned – in 7/103 – 10/90 -17/103 – 23/48 - 26/66 – 27/14 – 28/40 – 40/37 – 43/55 – 44/25-28 – 51/40 – 69/9-10 - 73/16 – 79/25. We may add that science seems to be pretty sure that if the Exodus happened, it happened around 1235 BC = during the reign of Ramses II. As we know that Ramses did not drown, Islam dearly wants it to have happened earlier and under a less known pharaoh that we do not know from what he died, but as so often they only backs up the claim with speculations. And not to forget: If it happened much earlier the "known" times do not add up.

156 20/79a: "Pharaoh - - -". A historical anomaly.

157 20/79b: "Pharaoh (Ramses II*) led his people astray instead of leading them aright". This may or may not mean the Ramses II should have made Egypt Muslim. No comment.

158 20/80a: "- - - Children of Israel - - -". A historical anomaly.

159 20/80b: "- - - We (Allah*) made a Covenant with you on the right side of (Mount Sinai) - - -". Convenient - in old Arab superstition the right side was the good side, whereas the left one was the bad side.

160 20/80c: (YA2601: "The Arabian side of Sinai (Jabal Musa) was the place where Moses received his commission before going to Egypt". "The Arabian side" = east Sinai. But Mt. Sinai was and is in the west of Sinai. No comments.

161 20/81a: "- - - commit no excess - - -". On some topics like spending Muhammad believed in "the middle way" like the Buddhists.

162 20/81b: "- - - those on whom descends My (Allah's*) Wrath do perish indeed". Often claimed, never once in 1400 years unmistakably demonstrated. Also see 3/37b above.

163 20/81c: "- - - those on whom descends My (Allah's*) Wrath do perish indeed". Just a reminder: According to the Bible, the involved god was Yahweh, not Allah.

164 20/81d: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

165 20/82a: "- - - without doubt - - -". Wrong. See 2/2b above.

166 20/82b: "- - - I (Allah*) am (also) He that forgives - - -". This Allah only can do if he exists and is a god (or the victim for the sin).

167 20/82c: "- - - I (Allah*) am (also) He that forgives - - -". But what effect can (prayers for) forgiving have in Islam. If everything is predestine according to Allah's unchangeable Plan, forgiving can change nothing - what is decided years and decades ago, will happen no matter.

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.)

168 20/82d: "- - - those who repent, believe, and do right - - -". Muslims - as you see the majority of Moses' Jews were good Muslims. Believe it if you are able to.

169 20/82e: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - f. ex. some of the best deeds were - and are - to steal and kill and suppress others for Allah and Muhammad.

170 20/82f: "- - - true guidance". There is not much true guidance in a guide-book full of errors and "ghost-written" by someone who likes power and wealth for bribes and women - and believing in betrayal and even in lies and broken oaths. Also see 2/2b, 7/192a, and 16/107b above.

171 20/83: "What made thee hasten in advance of thy people, O Moses?" Why did an omniscient god have to ask? (This is a real question, not a rhetoric one.) Not from the Bible - see 20/57a+b above.

172 20/83-84: Not from the Bible, actually partly contradicting it - see 20/57a+b above.

173 20/85a: "- - - tested - - -". Why did a predestining, omniscient god have to test anyone?

**174 20/85b: “- - - the Samiri had led them astray”. But the Jews still had not arrived in Samaria and there existed no Samaris (actually the name Samaria/Samirians/Samaritans as far as we can find, was not coined until 722 (?) BC under the little known king Omri who bought the land and built and named the town (1. Kings 16/24) - more than 500 years after the exodus that happened (if it happened) ca. 1235 BC). Also no Samiri is mentioned here in the Bible. Muslims try to “explain” the mistake by saying may be it is meant “shmeer” = stranger, or “shomer” = watchman = samara in Arab (irrelevant as the Jews did not speak Arab). - - - but if you cherry-pick from a whole language, it always is possible to find words that are look-alike – and that the Arab word here is a look-alike, is totally irrelevant, as these Jews of the old hardly spoke Arab as mentioned and thus did not use the word "samarar". It also is clear that the top translator, Abdullah Yusuf Ali, meant it is a name, not a work or something - he used capital 1. letter in the name. The same goes for other translations we have. But if the Quran means some other thing than it says here – or is possible to misunderstand - how many other places in the book are there similar or worse/religious mistakes? Similar claims in 20/87 – 20/95.

It is here telling about Islam's ways of getting out of problems or mistakes, that one of the "explanations" for who this person could have been who was a Samiri (the name Samaritan is used in some translations) at the time of Moses, is that was "'a man of the Jewish clan of the Samaria', i. e. the ethnic and religious group designated in later times as the Samaritans - - -" (quoted from A20/70a). This in spite of that no such group or clan or sect existed at that time and not for another 600+ years. This "explanation" is backed by top Islamic thinkers like Tabari and Zamakhshari.

If no explanation is possible, then make up one.

175 20/85c: "- - - the Samiri - - -" is not in the Bible. See 20/57b+c above.

176 20/86: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

177 20/87a: “- - - the Samiri - - -“. See 20/85b above.

178 20/87b: "- - - the weight of the ornaments - - -". There is some dishonest Muslim slander connected to this. When the Jews left Egypt, they were given valuables by the locals. Muslims say they must have use dishonest means to get it and cheated the Egyptians (A20/73). This is dishonest because it is told in the Bible how it happened, and scholars who read the Bible to find weak point to use, impossibly can have overlooked it, especially as it was a point of interest for them - the Bible is bigger than the Quran, but it is not that big. The Bible says (2. Mos. 12/35-36): The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and clothing. The Lord had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians". It thus was not a question of cheating, but of divine action according to this book. But it is easy for Muslims to believe in the cheating Jews (according to Islamic sources it cannot have been too much - YA2607 hints at one or two man-loads.) The real mechanism for the Egyptians' willingness to give, may f.x. have been panic over what had just happened; the unanimous death of all firstborn in Egypt, and a desperate wish to for any price get these people away.

One point we have heard not one Muslim comment on, and not seen one Muslim scholar write about, is if this limited amount of gold and valuables were fair payment for generations of slave worth they had been forced to do in Egypt?

179 20/87c: "- - - the Samiri - - -" is not in the Bible. See 20/57b+c above.

180 20/88aa: "- - - the image of a calf - - -". The calf was a religious symbol in Egypt, connected to the "god-ox" Apis - therefore this strange "god-image".

181 20/88a: "- - - they (some of Moses' Jews*) said: 'This is your god - - -'". 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 or happened? 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.

Also see 3/154e, 6/149a, 7/34a, and 14/22b above.

182 20/88b: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

183 20/89: "Could they (the Jews*) not see that it could not return them a word (for answer), and that it had no Power either to harm them or to do them good?". This also goes for Allah: He has to this date never given an unmistakable answer, never unmistakably harmed anybody, nor unmistakably done the least good to anybody (guess if Islam had told about it if there had been just one single proved incident!)

184 20/90a: "Aaron - - -". A historical anomaly.

185 20/90b: "- - - tested - - -". See 20/85a above.

186 20/90c: "- - - for verily your Lord is (Allah) - - -". The Bible here disagrees and means that the god of the Jews was - and is - Yahweh.

187 20/90d: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

188 20/90e: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

189 20/91a: Jews in Sinai said: “We will not abandon this cult (the golden calf*) - - -". The calf was a religious symbol connected to the ox Apis in Egypt where they came from - therefore this strange "god".

190 20/91b: Jews in Sinai said: “We will not abandon this cult (the golden calf*) - - -". See 20/49b above.<(p>

191 20/91c: Jews in Sinai said: “We will not abandon this cult (the golden calf*), but we will devote ourselves to it until Moses returns to us.” And Moses was very angry when he returned and found a live pagan cult among his people. But contradiction:

7/149: In this verse the Jews found they had sinned, and they repented before Moses returned in the next verse, 7/150.

Any explanation?

192 20/91d: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

193 20/92: "O Aaron - - -". A historical anomaly.

194 20/92-94: Not from the Bible (also 20/90-91 is not really from the Bible). See 20/57b+c and 20/85 above.

195 20/94a: "(Aaron) replied - - -". A historical anomaly.

196 20/94b: "Truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

197 20/94c: "- - - Children of Israel - - -". A historical anomaly.

198 20/95a: "(Moses) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

199 20/95b: “- - - O Samiri - - -“. See 20/57b+c and 20/85b above. The Samiri is not in the Bible. Where has Muhammad found him?

200 20/95-97: Not from the Bible. See 20/57b+c above.

201 20/96a: "- - - the Messenger - - -". Here is meant Moses, but the title "Messenger" is not used anywhere in the Bible and has no definition and thus no meaning there (the word is used infrequently, but not as a title). Muhammad has used it as a parallel to his own self introduced title - a confirmation of that he was in the same league as Moses.

202 20/96b: (A82): “He (the Samari*) replied: ‘I saw what they saw not: so I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Messenger, and threw it (into the calf) - - -.” But is this literal translation correct? Muslim scholars tend to understand it more figuratively. F.x. “The Message of the Quran” (Swedish 2006): “- - - (I), therefore, took a handful of what the Messenger had left behind and threw it away - - -.” And the 2008 English edition (which seems to have made small “corrections” in dogmatic "correct" direction and are slightly less honest than Muhammad Asad himself, even though he, too, sometimes is more dogmatic than honest): “- - - so I took a handful of the Apostle’s teachings and cast it away.” What is the true interpretation? It seems that one has to learn Arab to be sure – honesty is not always part of a war religion. Especially the differences in the text between the 2006 and the 2008 edition of “The Message of the Quran” may be telling something about Muslims and about Islam.

203 20/96c: "- - - the Messenger - - -". Remember this - Moses is one of the few persons from the Bible where Muhammad permits the use of his own claimed title, Messenger.

204 20/97: "(Moses) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

205 20/98a: "- - - god of you all (Jews*) is Allah - - -". The Bible disagrees. And so does science, as neither it nor Islam has found a single clear trace of Allah older than 610 AD. And actually also the Quran disagrees, as it proves Yahweh and Allah is not the same god, and it is clear that the god of the Jews was Yahweh (who also in spite of Muhammad's many claims was another and different god).

206 20/98b: "- - - there is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". See 2/255a and 6/106b above.

207 20/98c: "- - - all things He (Allah*) comprehends in His knowledge". If he knows and understands everything, why then does he have to test people? And why so many mistakes, etc. in the Quran?

208 20/98d: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a below.

209 20/99a: "Thus do We (Allah*) relate to thee (Muhammad*) - - -". The huge question is if any god at all has contacted Muhammad - lots of claims and lots of mistakes, etc. are the only indication for the real truth.

210 20/99b: "- - - We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) a Message - - -". No god was involved in a "message" like the Quran - too much is wrong.

##211 20/99c: "- - - a Message from our (Allah's*) own Presence". = The Quran, which is claimed to be a copy of the timeless "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) which Allah made before the creation of the world or which perhaps has existed since eternity, and which is so good and perfect that Allah and his angels revere it in their Heaven (Look at all the errors, etc. and see if you believe this). Copies of this book is claimed to be sent down to all prophets and messengers for Allah through the times - 124ooo or more according to Hadiths. It is aid the books have varied some from time to time to fit the changing times, but it is not explained how copies of one and the same timeless book can vary - but there is much which is not explained in the Quran, and many contradictions Muslims and Islam refuse to see.

212 20/100a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

213 20/100b: "- - - verily they(non-Muslims*) will bear a burden on the Day of Judgment". If Allah exists. If he is behind the Quran. And if the Quran in addition is 100% true.

214 20/101a: "- - - grievous will the burden be - - -". See 3/77b above." See 3/77b above.

215 20/101b: "- - - that Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

216 20/102a: "The Day when the Trumpet will be sounded - - -". The Day of Doom.

217 20/102b: "- - - the sinful - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. We also may mention that just this word often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, than in more normal religions (Islam is a religion of war - in spite of its loud slogans), not to mention how much its meaning in the Quran often differs from the basic of all human moral; "do against others like you want others do against you". Read the surahs from Medina and weep.

One small remark: As Yahweh's religion and f.x. moral code at many points are totally different from Allah's, you may qualify for Yahweh's Paradise even if Muslims condemn you to Hell - if both exists.

218 20/103: "- - - we (the dead*) tarried not longer than ten (days) - - -". Muhammad claimed that for the dead ones no time existed when they lay in their graves, between their death and the Day of Doom. Here it is said maximum 10 days, but other places it is said a day or part of a day - f.x. 20/104 just below.

219 20/104: "Ye tarried not longer than a day!" See 20/103 just above. Remember this when you in the Hadiths meet the dogma of "punishment in the grave" - it is not mentioned in the Quran. The time the dead ones experience in the grave, is not enough for any punishment in the grave, not to mention any protracted such punishment.

220 205a: "They (the people*) ask thee (Muhammad*) - - -". Historical anomalies.

221 205b: "They (the people*) ask thee (Muhammad*) - - -". See 20/88a above.

222 20/106+107: “He will leave them (mountains/mountain chains that will be removed*) as plains smooth and level. Nothing crooked or curved wilt thou see in their place”. This would be correct on a flat Earth. But as the Earth is curved, there has got to be curved lines at least where the big mountain chains have been removed. Any god had known.

223 20/108a: "- - - that Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

224 20/108b: "- - - the Caller - - -". Allah - but contradicted by the Bible, which says it means Yahweh, not Allah. 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.

225 20/108c: "- - - no crookedness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

226 20/108d: "- - - in the presence of (Allah*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that this day - the Day of Doom - is ruled by Yahweh, not by Allah. 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.

227 20/108e: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

228 20/109a: “On that Day shall no intercession avail, except for those whom permission has been granted by (Allah) - - -.” Here it is possible if Allah permits.

2//123: “(The Day (of Doom*) when) one soul shall not avail another - - - nor shall intercession profit her (the soul*) - - -.” An absolute law: No intercession possible.

2/254: “- - - before the Day (of Doom*) comes when no bargaining (will avail), nor friendship, nor intercession.” Among others: Intercession is impossible.

6/51: “- - - they will be brought to (Judgment (= Day of Doom*)) before their Lord (Allah*): except for Him they will have no protector nor intercessor - - -.”

82/19: “(It will be) the Day (of Doom*) when no soul shall have the power (to do) ought for another - - -.”

No question about permission – simply impossible.

(4 contradictions).

229 20/109b: "- - - that Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

230 20/109c: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

231 20/109d: "- - - granted by (Allah*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that this day - the Day of Doom - is ruled by Yahweh, not by Allah. 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.

232 20/110a: "He (Allah*) knows what (appears to his creatures as) before or after or behind them - - -". Allah knows and predestines everything.

233 20/110b: "- - - knowledge". See 26/83a below.

234 20/111: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

235 20/112a: "- - - he who works deeds of righteousness, and has faith - - -". = Muslims.

236 20/112b: "- - - faith - - -". Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran.

237 20/112c: "- - - deeds of righteousness - - -". Beware that when used in the Quran, expressions like this are relative to the Quran's own and rather "special" (partly immoral) moral code.

238 20/112d: "- - - faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

239 20/113a: “Thus We (Allah*) sent this (the Quran*) down - - -“. No book with that many mistakes is revered as a Mother Book (13/39b) by an omniscient god, and no omniscient god makes a copy of a book full of mistakes and sends it down as a holy book and the source for a religion dedicated to himself. The Quran with all its errors, etc. is not from any god - it is heresy, injustice, and slander against any god to accuse him of having made such a book.

240 20/113b: "- - - an Arabic Quran - - -". Rationally speaking an Arabic Quran was and still is a bad luck for Muslims, and bad policy for a god wanting world dominance:

The really hard thing was that the Arab written language was not completed - it was completed only around 900 AD. This means there even today are lots and lots of words where Islam does not really know what Muhammad really wanted to say. They camouflage the problem with calling it "different ways of reading", but in reality it is different versions of the book, and no-one knows which "way of reading" really is the correct one. 

A god for the world should want a world language. Many more could have read it and over much wider areas + that f.x. Greek and Latin and Persian and others were mature languages - it would have been possible to write down exactly what Muhammad said. (Arabic lacked vowels plus all the signs used when reading (diacritical points). The result is that one has to guess the missing letters and the signs. If you f.x. in English have the consonants "h" and "s" and know it represents a word, and have to guess the vowels, you can f.x. get "his" or "has" - or "house" or "hose". This is the problem Islam meets when it tries to read the old manuscripts - do not laugh when a Muslim next time tells you the Quran is exactly Muhammad's words to the last comma (and on top of all the comma did not exist in Arab at that time).

Arab has become so "elite" and holy, that also non-Arabs have to learn the Quran in Arabic - often by heart - even though they do not understand the words.

But it had two pluses for Muhammad:

It was possible for him and his first, primitive followers to use that language - and hardly any other.

Muhammad felt that the Arabs were inferior to Jews and Christians who had holy books. The Quran repaired parts of this inferiority feeling.

241 20/113c: (YA2638): "The Quran is in clear Arabic, so that even an unlearned people like the Arabs might understand and profit by its warning". Remember this each time a Muslims tries to explain away mistakes, contradiction, etc. wit claims that does not mean what it says, but something else, or that it is figuratively meant or that it is a metaphor or something. Also see 16/103b above and 41/3d below.

Also as said the book is not very pure Arabic:

The old Arab alphabet as mentioned only had the consonants - it even today is unclear what is the real meaning of many sentences.

The old Arab alphabet did not have the points (“diacritical marks”) used later to mark different letters.

The old Arab alphabet did not have marks like full stop or comma – even though many a Muslim today claims that the Hafs version of the Quran he is reading – or may be the Warsh version if he is from Africa – is an exact copy of Muhammad’s words “down to the last comma”.

The written Arab language and alphabet was not perfected until ca. 900 AD - perfect writing was impossible around 650 AD when the official Quran was made.

But all the same the use of imported words in a book trying to use perfect Arab language as a proof for divine origin, tells that it is not made by an omniscient god - he had not made such mistakes.

We stress that the following samples partly are taken from Internet, as our Arab is not up to that standard. Therefore it must be used carefully, and if you find mistakes, please inform us. It only is meant as a taste - according to experts there are a lot more:

Acadian:

Adam = man or mankind. The correct Arab word: Basharan or insane.

Eden = garden. The correct Arab word: Janna.

Aramaic:

Qiyama = resurrection.

Assyrian:

Abraham/Ibrahim - a name. The correct Arab equivalent: Abu Raheem.

Egyptian:

Pharaoh = king or potentate (also a title). Used 84 times in the Quran.

Ethiopian:

Malak = angel (2/33)

Greek:

Iblis - corruption of the Greek word diabolos = devil.

Injil - corruption of the Greek word eua(n)ggelion = Gospel. Correct.

Hebrew:

Ahbar = teacher.

Darasa = to find the deepest meanings of the scriptures by exact and thorough studies.

Furquan (also used in Syriac, pwrqn) = to make free, salvation.

Issa or Isa = Esau (brother of the patriarch Jacob). The Quran says it means Jesus. Correct Arab for Jesus: Yeshuwa (close to Hebrew Joshua which is the Hebrew version of the name Jesus).

Jahannam (Gehinnom or Gehenna) = originally the valley of Hennom or Hinnom near Jerusalem, intensely used for Pagan (Baal) sacrifices to fire, and it therefore later gave the name to Hell.

Jannatu Adn = paradise, Garden of Eden (today reckoned by science to have been in south Iraq – if it ever existed).

Malakut = reign, the country of Allah/God. NB: No original Arab word ends with -ut.

Masani = repetition.

Maun = to find sanctuary.

Rabbani = teacher.

Sabt = day of rest (Sabbath).

Sakinat = the presence of Allah/God.

Tabut = ark.

Taghut = mistake.

orah (Taurat) = Jewish holy scriptures, the Torah.

Tufan = deluge

There also are Hebrew words like; heber, sakinah, maoon, turat, jehannim.

Persian:

Firdaus = the highest or 7. Heaven. Correct Arab: Jannah.

Haroot or Harut = Persian name for angel. Also see “Maroot”.

Hoor = disciple. Correct Arab: Tilmeeth.

Jinn = good or bad demon. Correct Arab: Ruh.

Maroot or Marut = Persian name for angel. May in reality be the Hindu god of the wind.

Sirat = path. Correct Arab: Altareeq.

Syriac (liturgical language used in Eastern Christian churches - derived from Aramaic).

57/12 muhaymin - from mhymn’, Syriac = “the faithful”.

16/102 ruuh al-qudus, from rwh.qwdsh’, Syriac = “Holy Spirit”.

20/80 tuur - from t.wr’, Syriac = “mountain”.

52/29 kaahin - from khn, Syriac = “priest” - meaning a pagan soothsayer or diviner (69/47).

There also are Syriac words like; taboot, tag hoot, zakat, malakout.

242 20/113d: "- - - explained in detail some of the warnings - - -". This is worth remembering: It claims to explain some of the warnings. Most Muslims - and other texts in the Quran - claims the book explains everything in detail. This even though it is not even naivety to believe that such an after all small book can explain everything, not to mention in detail. This even more so as only parts of the book is used for explaining, and on top of that many of the "explanations" are invalid or wrong.

243 20/114a: “High above all is Allah, the King, the Truth!” Allah as shown in the Quran at best represents partly truth and partly mistakes. And does he even exist?

244 20/114b: “High above all is Allah, the King, the Truth!” Contradicted by the Bible, which says this is Yahweh, not Allah. 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.

245 20/114c: "- - - the Truth!" See 2/2b and 13/1g above, and 40/75 below.

246 20/114d: "- - - revelation - - -". See 4/47c, 5/59e, 15/1b above.

247 20/114e: "- - - knowledge". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally only means knowledge about Islam and related subjects. All other knowledge was "foreign knowledge" and at best disliked, at worst fought against with harsh means.

248 20/115: "We (Allah*) had already, beforehand, taken a covenant with Adam - - -". Once more a contradiction with the Bible, which says Adam's god was Yahweh, not Allah.

249 20/116a: “Prostrate yourself to Adam”. Wrong, as Adam did never exist - man developed from an earlier primate. We debated with some Muslims some time ago about this, and they triumphantly told us we were wrong, for now science had found that there had been an Eve and an Adam. Which is quite true. But what they did not mention, was that this “Eve” lived about 160ooo - 200ooo (195ooo?) years ago in the Rift Valley in East Africa, and represented a so called “bottleneck” - a time when the human race nearly died out - and only Eve had girl children, or the DNA of the other girl children died out later (this result is from tests of mitochondria DNA - mDNA - and mDNA only tells about the female side of the story, as mitochondria only goes from parents to child via the egg cell = from the mother – carrying only the feminine DNA). Then around 60ooo+ (64ooo?) years ago, something happened to Homo Sapiens (may be in the area south of the Caspian Sea). He still was Homo sapiens, but something – science does not know what - happened that started him on the road to technical and other developments. And there was another bottleneck - something similar to what happened to the “archaeological Eve” - happened once more. But this time it is readable in the Y chromosome, which only men – here named Adam - have, and consequently only shows the masculine side. This shows that all men living today, has a common “father” (by archaeologists not by coincidence named “the archaeological Adam” or just “Adam”) - a single man that lived 140ooo (some say 100ooo) years later than Eve. That archaeologists named them Adam and Eve, in a way is quite logical. But they have nothing to do with the Adam and Eve in the Bible or with “Adam and his wife” in the Quran - how could they f. ex. be man and wife when they lived 100ooo - 140ooo years apart, and one in Africa, the other may be in Asia? Not to mention essential facts like this when they talk of the archaeological Adam and Eve and use this as a religious proof for creation, we find dishonest. And at least the scholars in Islam – the ones that teach their students and congregations and are interviewed and write and speak in the media – do know this. It is a well known scientific fact among learned people.

###250 20/116b: “Prostrate yourself to Adam”. This is one of the revealing differences which make it impossible that Yahweh and Allah can be the same god: The differences between the paradises - here the differences between the angels. In Allah's paradise the angels indisputably is of a much lower standing than humans - if not they did not have to prostrate themselves to the humans. In Yahweh's paradise it is not so directly said, but angels clearly are of higher standing than man. (In addition there f.x. are the enormous differences between how humans live in the two paradises). If Yahweh and Allah had been the same god, they had had the same paradise. To use the understatement of the century: That is not the case.

This is one of the at least 100% proofs for that also this of Muhammad's claims is wrong.

251 20/116c: "When We (Allah*) said to the angels, 'Prostrate yourselves to Adam', they prostrated themselves, but not Iblis (later the Devil in Islam*) - - -". This represents a problem for Islam: Was Iblis an angel? But angels according to the Quran is created from light, whereas it is clear that Iblis was created from fire, and thus should be a jinn. The question is not settled yet. Clear language in the Quran?

252 20/117: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

253 20/118: "- - - nor to go naked." According to the Bible they were naked the first time, but were not aware of it ("felt no shame") (1. Mos. 2/25).

254 20/120: "- - - kingdom - - -". Kingdoms could for natural reasons not exist in the claimed lifetime of Adam. He would not even know what the word meant.

255 20/122a: "But his (Adam's*) Lord (Allah*) chose him (for His Grace): He turned to him and gave him Guidance". Even if Allah punished Adam, he forgave him. This means there is no "inherited sin" in Islam like in Christianity.

256 20/122b: "- - - Guidance - - -". Guidance from something similar to the Quran, is not much worth as guidance. Also see 2/2b above.

257 20/123a: "- - - with enmity one to another - - -". Does it here mean enmity between Adam and Eve? (The name Eve is not mentioned in the Quran, only in the Bible.) - or between the snake and humans? - or - - -? (The Bible says between the snake and humans).

258 20/123b: "- - - whosoever follows My (Allah's*) Guidance, will not lose his way, nor fall in misery". As the Quran is not Allah's guidance (if he exists), as no god would ever be involved in a book with a miserable quality like the Quran (with the possible exception of the polished language), this does not concern the Quran.

259 20/123c: "- - - My (Allah's*) Guidance - - -." If here is meant the Quran, there is not much guidance in a book with that much mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, etc.

260 20/123d: "- - - whosoever follows My (Allah's*) Guidance, will not lose his way, nor fall into misery". This is strongly contradicted by the Bible - incompatible really. F.x. some of the moral codes are so different that if a Muslim lives according to them, and then meets Yahweh at "the other side", he will not only get a ticket to Hell, but be placed on the fast track for Hell. Look f.x. at the fundamental basis for all inter-human morality: "Do unto others like you want others do unto you". The Quran and its war and suppressing religion and ideology does not live up to that by far on all too many points.

261 20/124a: "- - - whosoever turns away from My (Allah's*) Message, verily for him is a life narrowed down - - -". See 20/123d just above.

262 20/124b: "- - - whosoever turns away from My (Allah's*) Message, verily for him is a life narrowed down - - -". Wrong according to the Bible - at least for believers in Yahweh.

263 20/124c: "- - - My (Allah's*) Message - - -". The Quran.

264 20/124d: "- - - My (Allah's*) Message - - -". Wrong if Allah is a god - far too many errors, etc. for a god.

265 20/124e: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

266 20/124-127: Punishment. See 3/77b above.

267 20/126: “- - - Our Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

268 20/127a: "- - - thus do we (Allah*) recompense him who transgress beyond bonds and believes not in our signs - - -". Not unless Allah exists, and is something supernatural. (H is not a god if he is behind the Quran - too much is wrong in that book - but he may well punish if he belongs to the dark forces.)

269 20/127b: “- - - Sign of (Allah*) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

270 20/127c: "- - - the penalty of the Hereafter - - -". See 3/77b above.

271 20/127d: "- - - grievous - - -." see 2/2b and 3/77b above.

272 20/128a: “Is it not a warning to men (to call to mind) how many generations before them We (Allah*) destroyed, in whose haunts they (now) move? Verily, in this are signs for men endued with understanding”. This is a theme Muhammad/the Quran frequently return to: In the Middle East there were scattered ruins from towns and hamlets and houses. Muhammad told that they all were remnants from earlier “unbelievers” punished by Allah for not believing their supposed prophets. As usual without a single proof for all places put together. (In Pakistan this year Muslims proposed to put placards with quotes like this on old ruins - proofs and warnings about the fate of “infidels”. This really tells something about those Muslims and about the level of education even today - in 2007 AD (This was written in the 2007 AD edition). What then about naïve, primitive and zero educated poor people 610-632 AD? - were they easily “impressed”?)

His explanation is even more difficult to believe, as any professor and even student of archaeology can give many other explanations for ruins in arid areas - and especially in arid areas where the inhabitants were all waging war against everybody else at times.

Absolutely not a valid sign without a real proof.

273 20/128b: "- - - how many generations before them We (Allah*) destroyed - - -". A Most Merciful, Most Forgiving, benevolent and good god?".

274 20/128c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

275 20/128d: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

276 20/128e: "- - - for men endued with understanding". Muhammad knew how to flatter naive and uneducated followers - flattery was one of his means. See 13/3j above.

277 20/129a: “Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from thy (Muslims‘*) Lord (Allah*), (their punishment) must necessarily have come; but there is a Term appointed (for respite)”. Allah has decided the time, and will not change it - may be to give the culprits a chance to become Muslims, but other places the Quran tells Allah makes it hard or impossible for some non-Muslims to find the way to Allah. Predestination.

278 20/129b: "- - - a term appointed - - -". Predestination again. Allah predestines every detail in your and everybody's life - included for all animals and all inanimate existence. And the predestination is not possible to change.

279 20/130: “Therefore (Muhammad/Muslims*) be patient with what they (“infidels”) say - - -.” That was Muhammad’s tone in Mecca 615 AD or before – and until his flight to Medina in 622AD. It changed quite a lot from 622 AD and onwards and contradicted quite a lot of the mild words from the Mecca period. 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).

280 20/131a: "Nor strain thine eyes in longing for things We (Allah*) have given for enjoyment to parties of them (the richer ones than you)". Do not envy the rich ones and the ones with a better life than you - Allah has in his deep wisdom decided it like this - and in the next life you will be the one on top. At least an explanation of differences in life - and a cheap one.

281 20/131b: "- - - We (Allah*) test them (people*) - - -". The old question: Why does a predestining, omniscient god need to test anyone at all - - -.

282 20/131c: "- - - but the provision (Paradise*) of thy Lord (Allah*) is better and more enduring". Often claimed, never documented.

283 20/132a: "We (Allah*) ask thee (Muslims or Muhammad*) not to provide sustenance - - -". No - and this even though Muhammad was married to a 15 years older rich widow (though some thinks she may have been a little younger). But later Allah or Muhammad changes their minds: Sustenance and more via raids and wars.

284 20/132b: "- - - We (Allah*) provide it (sustenance*) for thee (people*)." Not unlike 11/7a above.

285 20/132c: "- - - Righteousness - - -". Beware that when words like this are used in the Quran, it is relative to the book's partly immoral moral code.

286 20/133a: "They (the skeptics at the time of Muhammad*) say - - -". Historical anomalies.

287 20/133b: "They (the skeptics at the time of Muhammad*) say: Why does he (Muhammad*) not bring down - - -". See 20/88a above.

288 20/133c: "Why does he (Muhammad*) not bring us (people*) a Sign from his Lord (Allah*)?" This actually was and is one of the big questions - Muhammad never was able to prove anything of any consequents concerning his claims and his new religion, even though both friends and opponents asked for proofs, and even though proofs would mean much for his preaching and for the progress of Islam. He had to explain away all such questions, sometimes with lies (f.x. no intelligent man knowing a little about people believe that miracles would not make at least some skeptics Muslims).

289 20/133d: “- - - Sign - - -“. There is not one single clear sign (Quran-speak for proof) anywhere in or outside the Quran neither for Allah nor for Muhammad’s connection to a god. Without exception all the “signs”, “clear signs”, and “proofs” only are claims or statements resting only on air and/or twisted logic or on other not proved claims. (There may be one exception; arguments taken from the Bible – but they in case tell about Yahweh, not about Allah. Islam likes to claim that they are one and the same god, but the teachings – especially as you find them in NT (the new covenant Muslims never mention – cfr. the last Easter of Jesus, f.x. Luke 22/20) – fundamentally are so different, that it is impossible that the two can be one and the same, not unless the god at least is schizophrenic.)

290 20/133e: "Has not a Clear Sign come to them (non-Muslims*) of all that was in the former Books of Revelation - - -". There may have been, but in case for Yahweh.

291 20/133f: "- - - the former Books of Revelation - - -". The Jewish scriptures and the Bible.

292 20/134: "- - - Thy (Allah's*) Sign - - -". See 2/39b and 20/133c above.

293 20/135a: "- - - the straight and even way". The road to the Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f above. It may be worth reflecting over that in the Quran the road to Paradise is the easy road, whereas in the Bible it is the difficult ("narrow") road. Allah and Yahweh the same god and fundamentally the same religion? You bet not.

294 20/135b: " - - - Guidance (the Quran*)". There is no reliable guide in a book that full of mistakes and even a little dishonesty.

Sub-total 294 + 10.288 = 10.582 comments.

Surah 6 is a bit hard upon the wishful thinking of Muslims:

In 6/50 Muhammad confirms he cannot see what is hidden - the future - killing all the claimed miracles claimed made by Muhammad concerning seeing what was hidden, and indirectly also documenting he was no prophet - not knowing the future = unable to make prophesies, and a person unable to make prophesies is no prophet. (F. ex. 5. Mos. 18/21 - in the same speech of Moses where Islam claims Moses foresees Muhammad when talking about "a prophet like me" - quite an irony when 18/21 indirectly, but clearly tells Muhammad was not even a prophet - 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.)

Also connected to 6/50;(A.6/39): "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.

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?

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

In connection with 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 social 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 connection with 6/148 (comment 6/141 in the same book) 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).
