1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 27 -- An-Naml (The Ants)

Revelation: Mecca 615 - 616 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 27/1a "Ta Sin". Some of the surahs start with a few Arab words which gives no meaning. They are called abbreviated letters. In some cases the letters may form words, but in case words irrelevant to the Surah. Nobody knows why they are there. A clear language in the book and meanings easy to understand, the Quran itself claims.

###003 27/1b: “- - - a Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -”. The more mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, unclear language, etc. there are in a book, the less clear it can make things. It also simply looses credibility. The Quran in many cases simply is incredible – literally speaking. f.x. unbelievably may points with wrong facts or contradictions - in strong spite of its and Muslims' claims about it being a perfect book from a god. Remember this every time a Muslim tries to tell you that you cannot understand the Quran unless so-and-so, or that the "real" meaning of a text is not what it says, but is hidden in an allegory.

004 27/1c: “These are verses of the Quran – a book that makes (things) clear.” See 26/2 above and see the heading of this surah.

005 27/1d: “These are verses of the Quran – a book that makes (things) clear.” No matter, points 27/1a, 27/1b and 27/1c make it clear that the Quran means the Quran is using a clear language. Which is essential, as many Muslims try to explain away mistakes with that Allah is a clumsy god unable to say exactly what he means, so "we" intelligent humans must explain what he really wanted to say, or that he did not mean what he said, but an allegory To be blunt: This is the problem with clumsy gods - we humans must explain and find the words and the obvious explanations or meanings they were unable to express themselves.

Two much used standard ways for Islam and Muslims to try to explain away mistakes, etc.

006 27/2a: “A Guide (the Quran*)”. See 7/192a, 16/107b, and 27/1b+d above. A good guide?

006 27/2b: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. Wrong. At the very best one can say that the Quran brought some glad tidings among all the bad persons, wanting loot and slaves, among some longing for a strong religion, and among some leaders wanting power - - - if it was not because the Quran itself proves 100% that something is very wrong in the book. So wrong that it neither can be made nor revered by any god – not even by a small mini god. Too much is wrong in the book. And a holy book not connected to a god, is that glad tidings? Also see 2/97i and 17/9d above and 61/13 below.

007 27/2c: "- - - Believers - - -". Muslims.

008 27/3a: "- - - those who establish regular prayers - - -". Muslims.

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.)

009 27/3b: "- - - regular prayers - - -". This demand for regular prayers - 5 times a day - was so essential for Allah (he even wanted more often according to Hadiths) that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. For Yahweh such formalism was so totally without any interest, that no similar rule - not even the idea - at all is mentioned in the entire Bible: Pray when there is a reason or a need or a wish. One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. Also see 23/9b above.

010 27/3c: "- - - regular charity - - -". One of the good aspects with the Quran is its weight laying on charity. But the moral effect is reduced by the fact that the main thing is not to help others, but to gain merit in Heaven, and by the fact that you gain as much merit from helping your nearest family, as from helping strangers - which often pushes strangers far down on the priority list.

011 27/3d: "- - - (full) assurance for the Hereafter". Only if Allah exists and is a god, and the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth.

012 27/4a: "As to those who believe not in the Hereafter - - -". Here is meant all non-Muslims, but the expression is not correct, as most religions have a "hereafter". In the old Arabia it is said they did not think much about a second life, but the Quran is intended for all the world it claims, and why then this expression?

013 27/4b: "As to those who believe not in the Hereafter, We (Allah*) have made their deeds pleasing in their eyes - - -". And thus made it difficult or impossible for them to find again the road to Heaven. Here are one more of the big differences between Islam and Christianity: Allah blocks the road to Heaven for many, especially if they are bad. NT tells about the shepherd who goes far out of his way to find just those "lost sheep", and about extra gladness and joy in Heaven when bad ones repent and are saved, even in "the eleventh hour". The same god? - impossible unless he is mentally ill.

014 27/4c: "- - - those who believe not in the Hereafter - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative (to Muslims) names for non-Muslims.

015 27/4d: "- - - We (Allah*) have made their deeds pleasing in their (non-Muslims'*)eyes - - -". Guess if that is the case also for Muslims, included warriors, al-Taqiyya (lawful lies) users and terrorists.

016 27/4e: "- - - We (Allah*) have made their deeds pleasing in their (non-Muslims'*)eyes, and so they wander about in distraction". See 27/4d just above - 100% sure they have the truth and the highest morality, without ever checking if it is correct.

017 27/5a: "- - - they for whom a grievous Penalty is (waiting) - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims. An open question as the Quran is not from a god: What about the Muslims if there somewhere is a next life and a god? - especially if it is a good and benevolent god not liking war and suppression, dishonesty and bad moral rules (cfr. "do unto others like you want others do unto you")?

018 27/5b: "- - - grievous Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

019 27/5c: "- - - in the Hereafter will be their (non-Muslims*) greatest loss". If Allah exists and it there is a hereafter and if the Quran has described this hereafter in truth and only in truth.

020 27/5d: "- - - in the Hereafter will be their (non-Muslims*) greatest loss". There also is the question: What about Muslims if the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is not the truth - and with all its errors, contradictions, cases of invalid logic and of unclear language, etc. it at least is from no god. And where will those Muslims end who have lived according to the harsh and selfish (f.x. lie, steal/rob, rape, suppress, enslave) parts of the Quran end if it turns out that Yahweh and his New Covenant rule the hereafter?

*021 27/6a: “- - - the Quran is bestowed upon thee (Muhammad/Muslims*) from the presence of One who is Wise and All-Knowing (Allah*).” Islam claims that the Quran is the copy of the Mother Book (13/39, 43/4, 85/21-22) which is revered in Heaven by Allah and his angles there. It further is claimed that the book either is made by the omniscient and omnipotent god Allah – the only god (? - see 2/255a and 6/106b above) – or has existed since eternity, and is so fundamental that may be it is not made even by the god. This verse may be understood as a strengthening of the last claim: The Quran is not said to be made by or sent down by or from Allah, but sent down from “the presence of“ Allah. The fact that spoils this lofty and undocumented claim (claims normally are undocumented in Islam – though they demand documentation and proofs from anybody else) is the huge number of mistakes, twisted facts, contradictions, twisted and invalid logic, unclear language, etc. in the book. No god – omniscient or not – has ever made such a sloppy work. And also: A large number of the mistakes, rites, ways of thinking, etc. are in accordance the culture and “knowledge” around the time of Muhammad in what we now call the Middle East – but no omniscient god would have to use mistaken science, customs and rules and ways of thinking from a special century and a special, small area on the minuscule planet Earth, when he made a book – or it in other ways came into existence – before the universe was created (which happened 13.7 billion years ago according to science). Propaganda? At least it is wrong.

There is one more fact that makes it impossible that the book is from eternity: There is at least one place in the Quran that angels (according also to Muslim scholars) are speaking (and at least 8 places where Muhammad is speaking). This means that the book cannot have been made - or at least not finished - until after the first angels had been created (they could not speak in the book before they were created). It is clear in the Quran that the angels are not from eternity - Allah created them from light. And it also cannot have been made earlier than it was possible for Muhammad to have his say in the book at least the mentioned 8(?) times.

*022 27/6b: “- - - the Quran is bestowed upon thee (Muhammad/Muslims*) from the presence of One who is Wise and All-Knowing (Allah*).” No god ever sent down a book of such a quality like the Quran - far too much is wrong - plus helplessly expressed according to Muslims wanting to explain away blemishes.</

*023 27/6c: “- - - upon thee (Muhammad/Muslims*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

024 27/6d: “(Allah is*) Wise and All-Knowing”. If that is right, he has not composed the Quran - far too many mistakes, too much unclear language, etc. Or to be blunter: The composer of the Quran is someone who is far from all-knowing.

025 27/6e: “(Allah is*) Wise and All-Knowing”. If he is all-knowing, why then does he have to test even his followers?

026 27/7a: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.

027 27/7b: "- - - or I (Moses*) will bring you from there (the fire) some information - - -". According to the Bible, it was a burning bush - and a bush could tell him no information.

028 27/7c: "- - - or I (Moses*) will bring you a burning brand to light our fuel, that we may warm ourselves". It is highly unlikely that Moses had to rely on wild fires to light the family's fuel. Highly unlikely - simply wrong (the art of making fire is far older than Moses).

029 27/7-12: The story about Moses and the fire roughly is like in the Bible, but most of the details are not from there. (From where are they, as the Quran with all its errors, and thus this story, is not from a god?)

030 27/8b: (A27/7): “But when he (Moses*) came to the (fire) - - -.” But according to early commentators, referred by Tabari, the Arab word “nar” (fire) in this context is synonymous with another Arab word “nur” (light) as the vowel is to be guessed. Then you get: “- - - came to the light - - -.” A third alternative is that the original text here – “man fi ‘n-nar wa-man hawlaha” is referring to Allah’s own light. All these three meanings are possible from the Arab text. And these variants - like before - also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning. Allah (?) really uses a clear language.

031 27/8b: "- - - Glory to Allah - - -". Read 1/1b and see if he deserves it. Yahweh perhaps, but Allah?

032 27/8c: "- - - Glory to Allah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that the god involved was 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.

033 27/8d: "- - - (Allah - *) the Lord of the Worlds". Often claimed, never proved. Words are cheap.

034 27/8e: "- - - (Allah - *) the Lord of the Worlds". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that the Lord 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.

035 27/8f: “- - - the Worlds.” The Quran falsely tells there are 7 Earths. See 26/77 above and 65/12 below.

036 27/9a: "O Moses!" A historical anomaly.

037 27/9b "O Moses! Verily, I am Allah - - -". We guess it is not necessary to tell that this name is contradicted by the Bible? The name Allah also is seen or heard about exactly nowhere in any material older than 610 AD - some 2000 years later. The best proof for this is Islam: Had the name existed anywhere in older materials, you bet they had told about it. 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.

038 27/9c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

039 27/9d: “- - - I am Allah - - -". See 27/8c above.

040 27/9e: "- - - I am Allah, the Exalted in Might - - -". Allah never has demonstrated clearly any might. But Yahweh - claimed without and proofs be Allah by Muhammad and the Quran - clearly has proved himself if either the Quran or the Bible is true.

041 27/9f: “- - - I am Allah - - - the Wise!” Not very wise if he made the Quran and all its mistakes, etc.

042 27/10a: "O Moses!" A historical anomaly.

043 27/10b: "- - - truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

044 27/11a: "- - - if any have done wrong and have thereafter substituted good to take the place of evil - - -". The Quran value the balance between good and evil deeds stronger than NT, where the goodness of and forgiving from the god is more central than in the Quran (even thoug also the Quran stresses forgiving, etc.)

045 27/11b: "- - - done wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

046 27/11c: "- - - good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

047 27/11d: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F. x. some of the worst wrong was not to go on raids and war to steal and kill and suppress for Muhammad.

048 27/11e: "- - - truly - - -". With this much wrong in the Quran, very little is "truly" unless there are separate proofs.

049 27/11f: "- - - I (Allah*) am Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and in addition is a god.

050 27/11g: "- - - I (Allah*) am Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, and the most immoral laws from sharia and see if you agree afterwards.

051 27/12a: "- - - it (Moses' hand*) will come forth white without stain (or harm) - - -." Strong contradiction to the Bible, where it became white and leprous (2. Mos. 4/6). Leprosy was an extreme illness at that time - and it made stains (though the Hebrew word for leprosy also covered other (skin) deceases). To remove it afterwards would make an impression.

052 27/12b: "- - - nine signs - - -". Another contradiction to the Bible: According to the Bible Moses only got 3 signs (the staff/snake, his leprous white hand, and changing some water to blood) + there afterwards were sent 10 plagues. (2. Mos. 4/8 and 2. Mos. chapters 7 through 11).

053 27/12c: "- - - Pharaoh (Ramses II*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

054 27/13a: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs (Yahweh's according to the Bible*) - - -." There never was one single unmistakable sign clearly proving Allah. Nowhere and no time. (Yahweh perhaps is another question if the old books tell the truth).

055 27/13b: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

056 27/14: “- - - see what was the end (death by drowning*) of them (pharaoh Ramses II and his men*)”. Wrong at least for Ramses II personally - he did not die until some years later, and not by drowning.

057 27/15a: "- - - David and Solomon - - -". 2 historical anomalies.

058 27/15b: It is very little likely that either king David or Solomon praised Allah - Islam will have to bring a proof if they stand by their undocumented claim. And remember: Yahweh and Allah is not the same god - the teachings are too different.

059 27/15 - 28: The story about Solomon and the bird (hoopoe) has nothing to do with the Bible, but is "borrowed" from a "fairy tale" ("The second Targum of Ester"). If it had been true, you bet the Jews had not forgotten to include it in their books to praise their hero king Solomon. See 27/16-44 shortly below.

060 27/16a: "- - - Solomon was David’s heir - - -". 2 historical anomalies.

061 27/16b: “We (King Solomon*) have been thought the speech of the Birds.” Wrong. One thing is that there is not one bird “speech” but one for each of the some 2000 different kinds of birds on Earth, and actually even more, as some birds have different “languages” or “dialects” from one place to another – even if you were thought cockney English, you would not understand Italian or Arab or Swahili. More fundamental is the fact that the birds’ brains are too small for developing coherent speech. The last years science has found that birds brains may be more efficient that our, gram for gram, but that all the same they are far too small for coherent speech – the minimum size where it is theoretically possible for a brain to get faculties rudimentary similar to the human brain, is guessed to be a brain the size of a cat’s. Coherent, intelligent speech from birds simply is physically impossible. Also see 27/16-44 below.

062 27/16c: "- - - Grace manifest (from Allah*)". Incompatible with the Bible, which strongly tells that the god of both David and Solomon was Yahweh, not Allah.

063 27/16d: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

*064 27/16 – 44: These stories – also repeated other places in the Quran - about King Solomon, the ants, the jinns slaving for him, the hoopoe, and not to mention the Queen of Sabah – are fantastic like were they from a fairy tale - - - which is what they are: They are “borrowed” from the made up - apocryphal, and hardly even apocryphal - scripture “Second Targum of Ester”. No god needs to steal old fairy tales and retell them with small – or big – twists to make them fit his religion/tales, and then call them facts. But Muhammad often did so. This is the reason why his contemporaries so often said that what he told just were old tales – they simply recognized the legends, fairy tales and stories.

065 27/17a: "- - - Solomon - - -". A historical anomaly.

066 27/17b: "- - - his (Solomon's*) hosts of Jinns and men and birds - - -". Believe this whoever wants to. But be 120% sure that if king Solomon had had command over jinns and/or birds, it had neither been forgotten in the Bible, nor falsified out of it - you do not reduce your greatest heroes, and neither does the Jews who in case had done the falsification.

067 27/17c: "- - - his (Solomon's*) hosts of Jinns and men and birds - - -". There is nothing even remotely like this in the Bible.

068 27/17d: "- - - his (Solomon's*) hosts of Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks". The next verse (27/18) implies they were on the march. How do you keep birds in "order and ranks"?

069 27/17e: "- - - Jinns - - -". A being "borrowed" by Muhammad from old Arab folklore and pagan religion. They are told in the Quran to be created from fire by Allah. (But would a god - and one for all Earth - have to "borrow" beings from old Arab folklore and pagan religion, (and only from there)?) Or to think the other way around: How come that the old Arab pagan religion had all beings of Heaven, and no other kinds of beings, something no other religion has managed? (To take the central ones for the Quran: Both Islam, the Jews and the Christians have angels, devils and spirits, but only Islam has Jinns, a kind of beings which differently from angels and spirits have material bodies - they f. x. can be punished by the fire of Hell, and according to Islam they can marry humans (laws for such marriages exists!!).)

070 27/17f: "- - - jinns - - -". An Arabism - see 13/4d above - as they only exists in and around Arabia. The word sometimes is translated with "spirits", but they clearly are something different from ordinary spirits.

071 27/17-44: King Solomon and the Queen of Saba (in Arab traditions her name was Bilqis). The Queen of Saba (Sheba) you also find in the Bible, but what is told here, are taken from the old made up book "The Second Targum of Esther". Allah chooses what sources he will!

*072 27/18a: An ant spoke to other ants and in a way possible for King Solomon to hear. Wrong. Ants do not have the brainpower for composing complicated (for non-human terrestrial beings) sentences, and they do not have organs for pronouncing words - not even “ant-language” words. Not to mention that they lack the power to speak loud enough for humans to hear. A fairy tale. (It is worth mentioning that Islam to a degree admits this. “The Message of the Quran calls it a legend – comment A27/17. But if this is a legend told like a truth, how many more are there like that in the Quran? Similar claim in 27/19. Also see 27/16-44 above. The only place you normally meet talking ants, are in fairy tales.

073 27/18b: "- - - Solomon - - -". A historical anomaly.

**744 27/19a: “So he (Solomon) smiled at her (the ant's*) speech - - -”. Wrong. See 27/16b and 27/18a above. It would be impossible for Solomon to hear what the ant also could not pronounce – also because if it could speak and if it could speak loud enough for us to hear, the diminutive size of an ant also would make the words far too high-pitched for our ear to register. Besides ants do not have organs making it possible for them to vocalize - and not large enough brain to compose coherent speech.

075 27/19b: “So he (Solomon) smiled at her (the ant's*) speech - - -”. Anthropomorphism - normally found in primitive religions and in fairy tales.

076 27/19c: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with to its own partly immoral moral code.

077 27/19d: "- - - Thy (here indicated Allah*) Grace - - -". See 1/1a above.

078 27/19e: "- - - the ranks of Thy (here indicated Allah*) righteous Servants". Muslims - according to the Quran both David and Solomon were good Muslims. Believe it if you are able to.

079 27/20a: "And he (Solomon*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

080 27/20b: "And he (Solomon*) took a muster of the Birds - - -". See 27/16b and 27/17b above.

081 27/21: "- - - I (Solomon*) see not - - -". A historical anomaly.

082 27/22: "I (Solomon*) will - - -". A historical anomaly.

**083 27/22-26: A bird - the hoopoe - making long, coherent speech/sentences of its own composition. No bird on Earth can do that - they do not have the brain capacity (see 27/16a and 27/17b - above). From a fairy tale - "The Second Targum of Ester". Allah chooses what sources he will! Also this is a case of anthropomorphism - normally found in primitive religions and in fairy tales.

084 27/22a: "- - -the Hoopoe - - - said: 'I have - - -". 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, 14/22b, and not least 27/22-26 above.

085 27/22b: "- - - 'Saba - - -". A country approximately where Yemen is now. We also have seen it written Sabah and Sheba (f.x. NIV of the Bible uses Sheba).

086 27/22c: "- - - 'Saba - - -". A historical anomaly.

087 27/22d: "- - - true". See 2/2b above.

088 27/23: "- - - a magnificent throne". Saba/Sabah/Sheba had the reputation of being a rich country.

089 27/24a: “I (the hoopoe*) found her (the Queen of Saba/Sabah/Sheba*) - - -". 2 time anomalies.

090 27/24b: “I (the hoopoe*) found her (the queen of Saba/Sheba*) worshipping the sun - - -“. Saba was at the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula – approximately Yemen today. In the old times this whole peninsula had a moon religion, not a sun religion – al-Lah (whom Muhammad later renamed to Allah) originally was a moon god. It is documented that also in old Saba the main god was the moon god (source; “The Lunar Passion and the Daughters of Allah”). We may add that Muslims say that even if the moon religion was the dominant, there also may have been sun worshippers. That is true, but not for the ruler of the country – the ruler has to be very strong or be a member of the official and main religion, if not there will be problems (look at Kashmir f. ex. – it all started with a Hindu ruler over a majority of Muslim underlings).

Besides she – the queen – could not "worship the sun besides Allah", because that name was not created yet. Perhaps the moon god al-Lah (later as mentioned renamed by Muhammad to Allah) or the old El. Also see 25/18a above. But Muhammad had a tendency to claim that others had different gods "in addition to Allah". Partly because by a little twisting of the facts this could be said about Arabs - they believed in al-Lat, a name sounding nearly like Allah, even if al-Lah was a pagan, polytheistic god, and partly perhaps because it made Allah look bigger and universal.

#091 27/24c: "Satan has made their (non-Muslims'*) deeds pleasing in their eyes - - -". See 6/108b, 23/1b, and 26/74c above. This human tendency also goes for Muslims, which the book ”forgets" to mention. There are several things in Islam which may indicate something, when you judge from what Muslims reckon to be normal and ethically and morally right - compare it to "do unto others like you want others do unto you", and it makes you think.

092 27/24d: "- - - the Path - - -". The road to the Muslim paradise. See 10/9f above.

093 27/24e: "- - - no guidance - - -". In Islam only Islam is "guidance". It is symptomatic that the pre-Islamic times in Muslim countries officially are called "the Times of Ignorance" - this even if some of those countries had much more knowledge and education before being conquered by the primitive Muslim nomads, than during the 1 - 2 next centuries among their conqurours - not to mention the disdain many Muslims felt for non-Muslim science and knowledge.

094 27/24e: "- - - guidance - - -". See 2/2b, 7/192a, and 16/107b above.

095 27/25a: "- - - (- - - the Path) - - -". See 27/24d above.

096 27/25b: "- - - Allah, Who brings to light what is hidden - - -". Why then 2/233h above?

097 27/25c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

098 27/25d: "- - - (Allah') knows what ye hide and what ye reveal". See 2/233h above.

099 27/26a: "Allah - there is no god but He!" Well. Even omitting all the others which are claimed to exist, there have to be at least 2: Yahweh and Allah - if Allah exists - if the old books tell the truth. The two are so fundamentally different in their teachings, that they simply are not the same god no matter what never proved claims Muslims like to throw around (one possible exception; if the god is seriously schizophrenic). This means that either there exist more than one god, or at least one of two does not exist.

100 27/26b: "- - - (Allah*) Lord of the Throne Supreme!" Often claimed, never proved.

101 27/26c: "- - - (Allah*) Lord of the Throne Supreme!" Contradicted by the Bible, which says that this throne belongs to Yahweh, not to 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.

102 27/27: "(Solomon) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

103 27/28a: “Go thou (the hoopoe*), with this letter of mine (Solomon's*), 2 historical anomalies.

104 27/28b: “Go thou (the hoopoe*), with this letter of mine (Solomon's*), and deliver it to them: then draw back from them, and (wait to) see what answer they return…” No bird is able to do this. Not even the carrier pigeon brings letters – it only is able to return home with a letter. (The pigeons have to be brought in cages from the one who is to receive the letter, to the one who is to send the message. Then when the bird is let loose, it simply wants to return home - - - and carries the letter to its nest, where the receiver can collect it. This is the only possible way for using birds for carrying a letter. Except in fairy tales.)

105 27/28c: “Go thou (the hoopoe*), with this letter of mine, and deliver it to them: then draw back from them, and (wait to) see what answer they return…” This in any case is contradicting the Bible (but not certain fairy tales). The Bible makes it clear that the Queen of Sheba/Saba visited Solomon on her own initiative, not after an invitation. (1. Kings 10/1).

106 27/29a: "(The Queen (of Saba/Sabah/Sheba*)) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

107 27/29b: "(The Queen (of Saba/Sabah/Sheba*)) said: 'Ye chiefs! - - -". See 27/22a above.

108 27/30a: "- - - Solomon - - -". A time anomaly.

109 27/30b: "In the name of Allah - - -". The chances that Solomon had started a letter with this name are less than zero for more than one reason. And if the Bible - here after all the most reliable source of these two according to normal scientific evaluations (written on a much stronger tradition and 1000 years closer to what happened) - is correct, no such letter even ever existed as she according to the Bible was not contacted by Solomon.

110 27/30c: "- - - Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful - - -". This had been possible to believe if it was not for the surahs from Medina, parts of the Islamic moral code, and some of the immoral/unjust laws of sharia.

111 27/31a: "- - - come to me (Solomon*) - - -". A clear contradiction to the Bible which says that she visited Solomon on her own initiative (2. Kings 10/1).

112 27/31b: "- - - in submission (to the true Religion) - - -". It is indirectly, but clearly indicated in the Bible that the topic and the reason for her travel, was Solomon's knowledge and intelligence, not religion. (1. Kings 10/1 and 10/6-7). There also in the Bible is reported nothing about religious debates or tries for making her change her religion. But Muhammad normally twisted his tales to make them fit his stereotype receipts for how tales in the Quran should be. Contradiction to the Bible.

113 27/31c: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

114 27/31d: "- - - (- - - the true Religion (Islam*)) - - -". Omitting the fact that the god of Solomon was Yahweh, not Allah, according to the Bible, there still remains the fact that a religion based on a book where no god has been involved, and full of mistaken facts, etc., is no true religion.

115 27/32a: "She (the Queen of Sheba*) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

116 27/32b: "She (the Queen of Sheba*) said: 'Ye chiefs! - - -'". See 27/22a above.

117 27/33a: "They (the chiefs*) said - - -". A historical anomaly

118 27/33b: "They (the chiefs*) said: 'We are - - -'". See 27/22a above.

119 27/33c: "We are endued with strength, and given to vehement war - - -". The chiefs gave an answer worthy of a war religion - but in the Bible there neither is mentioned possibility of war nor any indication of a war religion. Also according to our knowledge of history from that part of the world, Sheba was not a specially war-prone country.

120 27/34a: "She (the Queen of Sheba*) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

121 27/34b: "She (the Queen of Sheba*) said: 'Ye chiefs! - - -'". See 27/22a above.

122 27/34c: "Kings, when they enter a country - - -". There nowhere was any talk of that Solomon should visit her, neither in the Bible and till now nor in the Quran. And neither in peace, nor in war. This sentence is illogical according to the biblical texts.

123 27/34d: "Kings, when they enter a country, despoil it - - -". The underlying meaning is that Solomon might attack the country. But for one thing there as said was no intention from Solomon to visit her according to the Bible, for another Solomon was a king of peace, not of war, and for a third there was little meaning in planning an attack on such a distant country for after all tiny Israel. Not to mention that all this part of the story is taken from a made up book as mentioned above and just below (The second Targum of Ester), not from the Bible.

124 27/34e: "Implied in her (the Queen of Saba/Sheba*) statement (about wanting to avoid war*) is the Quranic condemnation of all political power obtained through violence ('anwatan) inasmuch as it is bound to give raise to oppression, suffering and moral corruption". Are Muhammad and Islam samples of this?

125 27/35a: "But I (the Queen of Saba/Sheba*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

126 27/35b: "But I (the Queen of Saba/Sheba*) am going to send - - -". See 27/22a above.

127 27/36a: "- - - Solomon - - -". A time anomaly.

128 27/36b: "But what Allah has given me is better - - -". King Solomon is a good Muslim according to the Quran. Anyone is free to believe it if he wants to. Just this hardly is even from “Second Targum of Ester” – see 27/16-44 above.

**129 27/37a: King Solomon is offered gifts from Saba/Sheba but answers with anger: “Go back to them (the rulers/queen of Saba*), and be sure we shall come to them with such hosts (armies*) as they will never be able to meet (= attack them*) - - -.” This answer has no logical reason or meaning, especially as the gifts were rich (“abundance of wealth”- 27/36). Also Islam agrees to that something is wrong here, as "a prophet could not answer good gifts with a war of aggression", but they do not have any good explanations – only rather lame speculations about perhaps it in reality is Allah who is speaking and threatening them with what he will do if they do not become Muslims (1500 years before Muhammad! – King Solomon ruled 961 – 922 BC give or take maximum 10 years according to Wikipedia). “Let there be no compulsion in religion”? THIS IS ONE OF THE PLACES WHERE MUSLIM SCHOLARS AGREE THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE TEXT IN THE QURAN. It also contradicts the Bible - nothing even similar to this there.

130 27/37b: (A27/29): “Go back to them, and be sure we shall come to them (Saba*) with such a host (army*) as they will never be able to meet: we shall expel them from there in disgrace, and they will feel humbled (indeed).” It is very clear from both the previous and the following verse that here it is Solomon speaking. But this is no logical answer to a peaceful embassy. The Quran also formally says that a war of attack is never permissible (though Muslims have found many ways around that formality.) So Muslim scholars have found it has another meaning: This is Allah warning the Sabeans to become Muslims – Solomon of course was a devout Muslim according to Islam and could not answer like this. In this case the second meaning clearly is made up – but it sounds real for Islam and its Muslims. And linguistically it is possible to twist the story like this. Also: "Let there be no compulsion in religion".

131 27/37c: "- - - (indeed) - - -". See 2/2b above.

132 27/38a: (A27/31): “Ye Chiefs! Which of you can bring me her throne before they come to me in surrender.” There is no logical meaning for surrender at this stage of the story – and especially not for such a distant country. May be therefore – or may be to keep up the pretension that good Muslims like Solomon (!) never starts a war – Islam has found another meaning: It means surrender to Islam. Well, the explanation is not quite as impossible as in 27/37b above. But it is not what the book says. “Surrender” is a political and military word with a clear meaning. It also is used in other connection, but then it is made clear what connection – like “surrender to Allah”, or “she will surrender to me” which implicates further details, articulated or not, to the word “surrender”. That is not the case here.

133 27/38b: “Ye Chiefs! Which of you can bring me her throne before they come to me in surrender.” Here we have a small tit-bit. As far as we can find out, this is the correct translation of the Arab text. But this is not logical - see 27/38 just above. A small change eliminates the problem in the "clear text in the Quran". One instead uses "surrender to Allah" even though "to Allah" is not in the Arab text, or "submission" - a word easier to associate with religion. Voila!!

134 27/38c: "- - - in submission - - -". Another contradiction to the Bible - nothing like neither submission nor surrender there. Actually this story is miles from the one in the Bible.

135 27/39a: "- - - an 'Ifritt - - -". A category of Jinns.

136 27/39b: “- - - (one*) of the Jinns - - -”. Jinns are beings with a diffuse role in the Quran. They are “borrowed” from old Arab pagan religion, fairy tales and legends. Allah made them from fire, the Quran tells – or may be from the fire of a scorching wind, according to one place in the Quran. There is said little about their shape - perhaps roughly like humans, though it is indicated that there were several kinds of them. (But as there existed laws for marriage between humans and Jinns, they must have been believed to be roughly human of shape).They also have a diffuse role in the “pantheon” - they definitely do not belong in the heavens, but neither in hell. There simply is said nothing about where they belong. Neither is anything said about their role in the “life” of heaven and hell or their real connection to the “inhabitants” those two places - or to earthlings. As we said; much is diffuse concerning them and their life, except that they must be beings that can die - and end in hell mostly it seems. As said they are borrowed from old Arab folklore and fairy tales and mostly seem not really to belong in the religion, though they are mentioned quite frequently. Generally we feel they are a little suspect most of the time, but not always. Some were f. ex. servants (or slaves) for King Solomon, and as mentioned; in the older times - not 100 years ago - there existed laws for marriage etc. between humans and Jinns, though no marriage ever took place!!

Do they really exist in the hidden world? - or are they in reality just something from fairy tales used for the mysterious effect?

Another mystery: If Islam is the main and original religion, one should meet the jinns many places – f.x. in the Bible. But you only meet them in Islam, and only in and around Arabia originally.

137 27/39c: "- - - Jinns - - -". Yet another contradiction to the Bible. There is nowhere in the Bible indicated that Solomon had Jinns or other supernatural beings in his service. And it had been included if it were true - it had been additional glory to a big hero of the Jews.

138 27/40a: (A17/32): “Said one who had knowledge of the Book - - -.” Who was this? Islam is unable to agree on it. Razi says it is Solomon himself – but the context clearly shows that this person speaks to Solomon. Clear text?

139 27/40b: "- - - the Book - - -". Here it must be meant the Bible/the old Jewish scriptures. Only that they did not exist at the time of Solomon, according to science, with the likely exception of the so-called "laws of Moses" in a naked form - this last according to the Bible (2. Mos. 24/4).

140 27/40b: "I will bring it - - -". See 27/22a above.

141 27/40c: "- - - (Solomon) - - -". A historical anomaly.

142 27/40d: "- - - To test me (Solomon*) - - -". See 8/28a above.

143 27/40e: "- - - truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

144 27/40f: "(Allah is*) Supreme in Honor!" Contradicted by the Bible, which places Yahweh alone on the top. 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.

145 27/41a: "He (Solomon*) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

146 27/41b: "Transform her (Queen of Sheba's*) throne out of all recognition - - -". In addition to all the other points which contradicts the Bible here, there is not one word in the Bible about Solomon or some of his men were able of this kind of sorcery - or any other kind of such.

147 27/41c: "Transform her (Queen of Sheba's*) throne out of all recognition by her (the Queen of Sheba*): let us (Solomon*) see whether she is guided to the truth - - -". A rather obscure sentence for which you find some explanations from Muslim scholars - none of them very down-to-earth. But then a test for her ability to sense Islam may be intended. Believe it if you are able to that the Jewish king tested people to see if they could become good Muslims - 1500 years before Muhammad.

148 27/41d: "- - - guided (to the truth) - - -". See 2/2b above.

149 27/41e: "- - - guidance - - -". See 2/2b above.

150 27/42a: "Is this your throne?" What is the logic or the psychology in asking a guest such a question?

151 27/42b: "She (the Queen of Sheba*) said - - -". A historical anomaly.

152 27/42c: "She (the Queen of Sheba*) said: 'It was - - -'". See 27/22a above.

153 27/42d: "- - - knowledge - - -". This and similar words in the Quran normally refers to religious knowledge. Here it could refer to the knowledge about the throne, but it seems to refer to that as they had got knowledge about Islam before her, they "had surrendered (to Allah)". (Anyone able to believe this about Solomon, is free to do so). 

154 27/42e: "- - - we (Solomon*) had surrendered (to Allah". The Quran claims Solomon was a devoted Muslim. Strongly contradicted by the Bible, which tells that Solomon's god was 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.

155 27/42-43: One possible meaning of the Arab text: “- - - and we (the Queen of Saba/Sheba – in Arab tradition called Bilqis*) have submitted to Allah (in Islam). And he (Solomon*) diverted her from the worship of others besides Allah - - -.” The alternative possible meaning of the book that is clear and not possible to misunderstand: “And we (Solomon*) had knowledge of Allah’s Message and accepted it before her - - - and the worship of others besides Allah diverted her (from the true Religion).” Clear or confusing? – 2 very different meanings. In addition this verse simply has unclear text.

156 27/43a: "- - - she (the Queen of Sheba*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

157 27/43b: "- - - disbelieving - - -". Non-Muslim - only Muslims believe according to the Quran.

158 27/44a: "- - - she (the Queen of Sheba*) - - -. A historical anomaly.

159 27/44b: "- - - she (the Queen of Sheba*) said: "O my Lord!"

See 27/22a above. 

160 27/44c: “- - - she (the Queen of Sabah*) thought it (the floor*) was a lake of water (though it was slabs of glass) - - -“.

They did not have the technology to make that quality of glass ca. 1000 BC.

They did not have the technology to make big slabs – and they had to be really big not to notice at once the cracks between the slabs - of glass ca. 1000 BC. Even today it is difficult, as it needs months of very exact and slow cooling for big slabs not to crack. (Cfr. the making of large astronomical telescopes).

Contradicted by historical and technical facts.

161 27/44d: The Queen of Sheba/Saba is shown a floor of glass and becomes a Muslim. Where is the logic and the psychology behind such a reaction? 

162 27/44e: "- - - Solomon - - -". A historical anomaly.

163 27/44f: "- - - (Allah - *) the Lord of the Worlds". Often claimed, never proved. Words are cheap.

164 27/44g: "- - - the Worlds - - -". Plural and wrong - there are no 7 worlds like the Quran claims.

165 27/45a: "- - - Thamud - - -". A tribe from old Arab folklore Muhammad claimed was destroyed because they sinned against Allah. The tribe may or may not have existed, but Islam will have to prove that their demise - if they ever existed - was because of sins against a god.

166 27/45b: "- - - Thamud - - -". A historical anomaly.

167 27/45c: "- - - Salih - - -". A man Muhammad claimed was the self proclaimed prophet of Thamud. You only find him in the Quran.

168 27/45d: "- - - Salih - - -". A historical anomaly.

169 27/45e: "- - - they (the Thamud*) became two fractions quarreling with each other". See 27/22a above.

170 27/46a: "He (Salih*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

171 27/46b: "- - - evil - - - good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

172 27/46c: "- - - ask Allah for forgiveness - - -". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and is a god.

173 27/46d: "- - - mercy". See 1/1a above.

174 27/47: "- - - ye (the Thamud*) are a people under trial". Why did a predestining, omniscient god need to try people? Also see 8/28a.

175 27/48: (A27/47): “There were in the city nine men in a family that had made mischief - - -.” But the words “in the family” seems to be added by someone, and the Arab word “raht” may here as well mean clan. There is a lot of difference between 9 men doing mischief in a city, and 9 clans doing the same. Besides maybe it was not really a city, but a whole region – Al-Hirj in northern Hijaz (“county” in Arabia). Several meanings possible – from a clear (?) text.

176 27/49: "- - - the truth - - -". See 2/2b and 13/1g above.

###177 27/50: “They (non-Muslims*) plotted and planned, but We (Allah*) too planned - - -.” As said other places: When Allah can deceive, any good Muslim of course can do the same. THIS IS ONE OF THE VERSES WHICH MAKES THE "MORAL" FOUNDATION FOR AL-TAQIYYA (THE LAWFUL LIE), KITMAN (THE LAWFUL HALF-TRUTH), ETC. - WHEN ALLAH COULD DECEIVE, IT OF COURSE WAS/IS MORALLY OK TO DO SO. Muhammad institutionalized it by his points of view on deceit and breaking of even oaths.

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 work/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. (Compulsory if necessary to succeed.)

To promote Islam. (Compulsory 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.

178 27/51: "- - - We (Allah*) destroyed them (the 9 sinners*) and their people (all of them)". But did anyone but the sinners deserve death? - "a parent shall not be punished for what the child does" according to the Quran, and the child shall not be punished for what the parents do. (If you belong to the ones blaming Yahweh for being a bit bloody in OT, please read a little about the claimed history of Allah.)

179 27/52a: "- - - wrongdoing - - -". Normally "Quran-speak" for practicing other religions than Islam. The word is a bit "loaded", but that may have been the intention.

180 27/52b: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

181 27/52c: "Verily, in this is a Sign for people of knowledge". Flattery works - especially if people have little knowledge. (Muhammad pretty often uses this kind of flattery. It at the same time "tells" that his new religion was for the intelligent and thus had to be ok.) Also see 13/3j above and 40/75 below.

182 27/52d: “- - - Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

183 27/52e: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it practically always means "Islamic knowledge" (the Bible is not a little different there, as it also praises other kinds of knowledge). Also see 26/83a above.

184 27/55a: "- - - those who believed - - -". Muslims.

185 27/53b: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relevant to its own partly immoral moral code.

186 27/54a: "(- - - sent) Lut (Lot*) as a messenger - - -". This is not in the Bible. There it is told he lived there (near Sodom and Gomorrah), but not that he should be a prophet for them (the Bible does not use the word "messenger" as a title.

187 27/54b: "(- - - sent) Lut (Lot*) as a messenger - - -". A historical anomaly. See 27/22a above.

188 27/54c: "- - - he (Lot*) said to his people - - -". Wrong. Both the Bible and the Quran make it very clear that Lot was not of the people in Sodom and Gomorrah. For one thing he was from a distant place (Ur in Chaldea), and for another thing especially in the Quran it is made clear that he was not accepted in the community. But the Quran needs to claim this, as it normally claims that prophets (here Lot - not called a prophet in the Bible) are sent to their own people.

189 27/54d: "Do ye (men of Sodom and Gomorrah*) do what is shameful - - -". They were infamous for homosexuality. But the irony is that even in homosexuality is bad in the Quran, it through the times has been silently accepted in some Muslim societies - f.x. "caravan-wives" - young boys for such use on long trips without women - was accepted some places. his with silent acceptance of homosexuality some places, is a reason for the Question and snickers about the young, handsome men serving in Paradise.

190 27/55a: "- - - approach men in your lusts - - -". Sodom and Gomorrah were infamous for homosexuality. See 27/54d just above.

191 27/55b: "- - - ignorant". As for words related to knowledge, see 26/83a above.

192 27/56a: "- - - his ("Lot's* people") - - -". See 27/54c above.

193 27/56b: "- - - his ("Lot's* people") - - -". A historical anomaly.

194 27/56c: "- - - his ("Lot's* people") gave no other answer - - -". See 27/22a above.

195 27/57a: "- - - except his ("Lot's*) wife - - -." Another place in the Quran it is said to be an old woman.

196 27/57b: "- - - except his (Lot's*) wife; her We (Allah*) destined to be of those who lagged behind." Clear - and for the wife serious - predestination. Remember cases like this when you meet Muslims claiming there in reality is no predestination or that there is no real predestination, or similar. (Predestination makes it very immoral for Allah to punish people for bad deeds - or lack of good ones. If a god first foresees someone to do or not do something, and then punishes - or sends to Hell - this person because of the deeds, this god has a strange moral code.)

197 27/57c: "- - - except his (Lot's*) wife; her We (Allah*) destined to be of those who lagged behind." Contradiction to the Bible? - the Bible simply says "But Lot's wife looked back (which the angels had forbidden*), and she became a pillar of salt." She did not lag behind and thus was killed (1. Mos. 19/26) - - - but perhaps Allah had predestined her to look behind? - if he exists?

198 27/58: "- - - a shower (of brimstone) - - -". Another contradiction to the Bible: In the Bible Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by a rain of burning sulfur (1. Mos. 19/24).

199 27/59a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a.

200 27/59b: "- - - His (Allah's*) servants - - -". Sometimes all Muslims. but in this case the claimed prophets.

201 27/59c: "- - - His (Allah*) servants whom He has chosen - - -". No omniscient god would choose a prophet telling his followers lots of wrong facts and other errors.

202 27/59d: "- - - His (Allah*) servants whom He has chosen (for His Message (the Quran*))". No god ever was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran.

203 27/59e: "(Who) is better? - Allah or the false gods they (non-Muslims*) associate (with Him)?" False gods have no power and no value and nothing to offer for a perhaps next life - on the contrary, as they waylay and misdirect you in your search for a possible next life - even blocks the road for you if it denies you to search other than wrong roads. The disturbing fact here is that also Allah never has proved his power or even his existence and thus may be a made up and false god - and Muhammad never was able to prove his connection to a god and thus may be a false prophet, this even more so as he clearly liked riches for bribes, and power and women, believed in using lies (al-Taqiyya, Kitman) and even broken oaths if that gave better results (plainly said even in the Quran), and had a very doubtful moral (stealing/robbing, raping, suppressing, murdering, deceiving ("war is deceit" - and every place outside Islam is "the land of war"), lying even in the Quran, just to mention a few facts - all this from central Islamic religious literature and history). If the Quran is a made up book and Allah thus a made up god, Allah is as false god as all the other false gods. What is sure, is that the Quran is not from a god - no god makes that many mistakes, contradictions, unclear language, cases of invalid logic, etc.

204 27/59f: "- - - false gods they (non-Muslims*) associate (with Him) (Allah*) - - -". They do not associate other gods with Allah, but he or they are instead of Allah. But Muhammad uses such expressions many places in the Quran - it makes Allah sound much bigger. The exception with some twisting was Arabia, where the polytheistic main god al-Lah and the monotheistic god Allah had so close names that Muhammad could mix them - an Arabism in this case. But this simply was a linguistic dishonesty.

205 27/60a: "Or, who has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and who sends you down rain from the sky?" Like so often Muhammad takes natural phenomena and without any proofs claims his god made or makes it, just like prophets of most religions do - words are that cheap as long as you can flee from proving anything. Invalid as proof or even indication for Allah, as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who made/makes it.

206 27/60b: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

207 27/60c: "Yea, with it (rain*) We (Allah*) cause to grow well-planted orchards full of beauty and delight". See 11/7a or 27/60a above.

208 27/60d: "- - - it is not in your power to cause the growth of trees in them (orchards*)". Correct. But it also is correct that there only exist loose claims - and from a man with very doubtful moral and reliability - for that Allah has the power to do so, yes, even for Allah's very existence. And it further is 100% correct that also this is a natural phenomenon Muhammad without the least proof just claims for his god - like any priest can do for any god free of charge as long as he can evade proving anything.

209 27/60e: "(Can there be another) god besides Allah?"

First: We cannot know if "besides Allah" has a meaning, as we cannot know if Allah exists. One can believe it ever so strong, but as long as he does not prove himself, it only is belief, not real knowledge. Beliefs - even strong beliefs - have proved wrong before, just think about all strong believers in false gods.

Secondly: There is no natural law preventing more than one god. In this case Islam f.x. has the problem with Yahweh - a god who clearly has proved himself if either the Bible or the Quran is correct on these points, and who clearly is not the same god as Allah in spite of Islam's never documented claims about this - too much, too many, and too deep differences between the teachings. If there is just one god at least one of these two does not exist. Which one in case is the more likely one? Also see 25/18a above.

210 27/60f: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are a people who swerve from justice". Not if they happen to believe in a real god (if such one exists). And especially not if the Quran is a made up book - and it proves itself that it is not from any god, as no god would sully his name by being involved in a book where so much is wrong. Besides: Many nations have laws more just and with better moral and ethics than the sharia laws of Islam. (Some of the paragraphs in sharia are horrible).

211 27/60g: "- - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and its partly unjust judicial code.

212 27/61a: "Or, who has made the earth firm to live in - - -". The answer to this rhetoric question is intended to be Allah, but see f.x. 11/7a or 27/60a above.

**213 27/61b: “(Allah*) has made the earth firm to live in, made rivers in its midst; set thereon mountains immovable - - -”. All of this nature manages very well itself. The only things which are proved about Allah because of this or other natural phenomena are that the Quran likes to give Allah credit for everything, and that it is not able to prove anything.

Would an omniscient god establish all his credibility on loose words, invalid and even wrong signs, contradictions, and as invalid and wrong proofs - not to mention helpless and unclear language? - things he had to know would backfire the day humans started to find out things?

214 27/61c: “(Allah*) made rivers in its (the Earth’s) midst - - -”. Wrong. The Quran believed the Earth was flat, and then there is a midst. But the Earth is a sphere, and the surface of a sphere has no midst. Besides: Is it Allah or rain that makes rivers? Also see f.x. 11/7a or 27/60a above.

215 27/61d: “(Allah*) made rivers in its (the Earth’s) midst - - -”. One curious fact is that Hadiths claim that two of these rivers - the Nile and the Euphrates - start in Paradise(!!)

216 27/61e: "- - - set thereon mountains - - -". Not one single mountain is "set", each and every one has grown up - it is the only way mountains come into being. Even worse: The word used in the original Arab Quran is not "set" but "dropped down" - the same Arab word which is used when f.x. a sailor drops an anchor.

217 27/61f: "- - - set thereon mountains immoveable - - -". From other places in the Quran we know that Allah has set down the mountains to stabilize the flat Earth, so as it shall not start to wobble and may be drop you off (Muslims today claim it is to stabilize against earthquakes - which the mountains by far are too small to do, and even sometimes causes small quakes - but wobbling and tipping over is what the Quran really says.

218 27/61g: "- - - and made a separation between the two bodies of water (fresh and salt water*) - - -". Yet another natural phenomenon used without a proof as indication for Allah. There are many such ones in the Quran. But one thought: Who is it who has to resort to bluffs and invalid proofs? - normally it is the cheat and deceiver.

219 27/61h: "(Can there be another) god beside Allah?" After all these invalid claims in 27/60 and 27/61 the intended answer to this rhetoric question is "only Allah", but see f, ex 11/7a, 27/60e above and 27/61h below. Also see 2/255a and 6/106b above.

220 27/61i: "Nay, most of them (non-Muslims*) know not". This is just the question - did some of them know so much that they saw things were very wrong in Muhammad's new religion?"

221 27/62a: "- - - who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him (Allah*), and who relives its suffering - - -?" How do this fit the strong claims in the Quran about Allah predestining everything according to a Plan which no-one and nothing can change the very least? Either Allah has decided a better future for you or he has not - nothing can change his Plan - - - which means that either the Plan is untrue or your prayers are wasted time. (But predestination was necessary for Muhammad to get as many and as fearless warriors as possible - predestination meant that battles were not more dangerous than staying home, and in battles you could gain loot.

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.)

122 27/62b: "(Can there be another) god besides Allah?" See 2/255a, 6/106b and 25/18a and also 27/60e and 27/61h above.

####223 27/62c: "Little is it that ye (non-Muslims*) heed". We heed the fact that if there is a god who has created us, his greatest gift except life, is our brain. He in case did not give us a good brain for other reasons than that we should use it. He hardly gave such a brain to us for that we should not use it in the most serious of all questions: Is there a next life and how to find the right god in case? He did not give us such a brain for that we just should switch it off and believe blindly in the one with the slickest tongue and/or strongest weapons - and especially not if their teaching was so full of mistakes, that it is not from any god.

And if there is no god, why then squander time and effort and misery for others on a religion so misanthropic (bad to humans) like Islam?

224 27/63a: "- - - who guides you - - -". Not Allah if he uses the Quran - too much is wrong.

225 27/63b: "- - - who guides you through the depths of darkness on land and sea, and sends the winds - - -". See 11/7a above.

226 27/63c: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. In this case it refers to rain. That is glad tidings in deserts like in Arabia, but hardly in f.x. Amazonas or England or a lot of other places. Another of the many "Arabia-isms" in the Quran. In Muhammad’s local area rain was glad tidings, in the area of a world religion that claims at best only is partly true – but why is Arabia the only cultural and otherwise centre of the Quran if it is for all the world – and from an omniscient god?

227 27/63d: "- - - his mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

228 27/63e: "- - - his mercy - - -". In this case this in reality means rain - a mercy to people in desert areas - a good Arabism. But it definitely is not a mercy everywhere (not unless you use extreme "explanations"). A universal god would not use such a strong word except for something which was a mercy to every community.

229 27/63f: "(Can there be another) god besides Allah?" See 2/255a, 6/106b, 25/18a, 27/60e and 27/61g above.

230 27/63g: "- high is Allah above what (other gods*) they associate with Him!" If he exists. And if the Quran tells the truth on this point. Not to mention: If he is not one of them.

231 27/63h: "- high is Allah above what (other gods*) they associate with Him!" Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the highest - may be because they do not associate two so different gods with each other - - - and actually does not even believe in other gods than Yahweh. (Only Muslims mix those two - they have to to have an old religion - - - and because if not there are more mistakes in the Quran to gloss over.) 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 27/64a: "Or, who originates Creation, then repeats it - - -" See 21/56c and 7/158i above.

233 27/64b "- - - - who gives you sustenance from heaven (rain*) and earth (food*)?" More natural phenomena or simply undocumented claims used as indication for Allah. Totally invalid as long as it is not proved Allah really does this. See 11/7a above.

234 27/64c: "(Can there be another) god besides Allah?" See 27/60e and 27/61f above.

235 27/64d: "Bring forth your (non-Muslims'*) arguments, if ye are telling the truth!" Muhammad claimed documentation from all others - which means proofs have value - but only brought forth loose words, claims, and statements himself.

236 27/64e: "- - - truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

237 27/65a: "Say: None in the heavens (plural and wrong*) or on earth, except Allah, knows what is hidden - - -". This is one of the many things which are easy to say, but which is logically invalid as indication or proof for Allah, unless Allah proves he, and he alone, is able to do this. Also see 2/233h above.

238 27/65b: "Say: None in the heavens (plural and wrong*) or on earth, except Allah, knows what is hidden - - -". Contradicted by the Bible who says Yahweh is the one who know most. 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.

239 27/65c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

240 27/66a: "Still less can their (false gods*) knowledge comprehend the Hereafter - - -". But is Allah any better? He has not proved his power. He definitely has not proved his knowledge if he is behind the Quran. He has not even proved he is not a false god - or his very existence. And all which is said and claimed about him, rests only - only - on the words of a man who even the Quran and other central Islamic books show has a doubtful moral and doubtful reliability (note that we say "show" not "say" - acts and demands are much more reliable than glorious words and claims).

241 27/66b: "Still less can their knowledge comprehend the Hereafter - - -". This depends entirely on how reliable sources they have for their knowledge. (It does not take much to be more reliable than the Quran).

242 27/67a: "The Unbelievers say (to Muhammad*): 'What! When we become - - -". See 27/22a above.

243 27/67b: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

244 27/67c: "What! When We (humans*) become dust - - - shall we really be raised (from the dead)?" Remember here that Muhammad claimed we will be resurrected bodily - atom for atom or molecule for molecule - which was a bit difficult to believe. But as nearly all pleasure in the Islamic Heaven are bodily pleasures, a resurrection of the body is necessary. But a heaven of mainly earthly/bodily pleasures - is that really heavenly?

245 27/68a: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

246 27/68b: "- - - these are nothing but tales of the ancient". Mostly the opponents were right - most of the stories in the Quran are older tales Muhammad "borrowed" and then twisted to fit his religion. Most of the sources are known. Is it necessary for a god to use old - and sometimes wrong - stories? - and often wrong facts? 

247 27/69a: "Go ye (humans*) through the earth and see what has been the end of those guilty (of sin)." This refers to the fact that there were scattered ruins and empty houses and hamlets and villages and even towns in and around Arabia. Muhammad claimed - as normal without proofs - that they all were results of Allah's punishments for sins. As there are many other possible explanations, also this never proved claim must be deemed likely to be wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

248 27/69b: "- - - guilty (of sin)". Beware that what is sin in Islam and what is sin in non-war religions may be different things.

p>249 27/69c: "- - - Sinners - - -". 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.

250 27/70: "But not grieve over them (sinners who are lost*) - - -". This is one more of the really huge differences - 100% - between NT and the Quran - Jesus and Yahweh felt deep sorrow for each lost soul, and joy for each lost soul which was saved in time - even in "the eleventh hour". Read f.x. "William Booth enters Heaven" (if we remember the title correctly) - one of the huge triumphs hailed by poetry. And see f.x. Luke 15/8-10 and 15/11-31, Matt. 18/12-14, and 20/8-13.

251 27/71a: "They (the Unbelievers*) say (to Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly

252 27/71b: "They (the Unbelievers*) say (to Muhammad*): 'When will this - - -". See 27/22a above.

253 27/71c: "(Say) if ye (Muhammad*) are truthful". Muhammad was not always truthful - there was al-Taqiyya and Kitman (even if the names may have come later), there was betrayal and deceit, there were broken words/oaths - even some lies in the Quran (ike miracles - proofs for Allah - would not make anyone believe anyhow). (A small, but serious fact: In Pakistan there is official death penalty for saying things like this, even if it is true and easy to prove from central Islamic books - it is to talk bad about the prophet Muhammad, which carries death penalty. Do you want such a future?

254 27/72a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

255 27/72b: "- - - some of the events some of you (non-Muslims*) want to hasten - - -". Skeptics sometimes dared him to send this or that for a proof for that he was telling the truth. He never was able to - never proved anything at all.

256 27/72c: "- - - or (the bad future/Day of Doom*) may be (close) in your (non-Muslims'*) pursuit!" This is a standard threat you may meet in most religions: Behave and obey - the end may be near. Cheap words, but sometimes efficient.

257 27/73a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

258 27/73b: "- - - thy Lord (Allah*) is full of grace to mankind - - -". Please read the surahs from Medina + the harshest of the sharia laws and see if you agree. We at least, when there is disagreement between words on one side and demands and deeds on the other, always believe the demands and deeds - they are much more reliable than cheap words and claims.

259 27/73c: "- - - most of them (non-Muslims*) are ungrateful (does not accept the new religion of Muhammad*)". At least many because they saw something was wrong.

260 27/74a: "And, verily, thy (humans'*) Lord (Allah*) knoweth all that their (humans'*) hearts do hide, as well as all they reveal". This is a reminder you meet in different forms many places in the Quran: Allah knows everything, so do not try to cheat. Also be a good and obedient Muslim so as not to end in Hell. But if you are a good and obedient Muslim you can be glad because then you end in Heaven if the Quran tells the truth, and because the bad ones who are better off than you will be punished in the next life - - - if the Quran tells the truth. Also see 2/233h above.

261 27/74b: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

262 27/75a: "(Everything) is (recorded) in a clear record". But why does Allah need a record if he is omniscient?

263 27/75b: "(Everything) is (recorded) in a clear record". But if he sees and knows everything - which he has to in order to be able to record it, why then 2/233h?

264 27/76a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

265 27/76b: “Verily this Quran doth explain to the Children of Israel most of the matters in which they disagree”. Very wrong. For one thing the Quran is so different from the Mosaic religion (and even more different from Christianity), that it clearly is not the same and thus cannot explain much. For another: A book with that many mistakes, etc. can explain very little.

266 27/76c: "- - - Children of Israel - - -". (Figuratively the children of the old patriarch Jacob, who was renamed Israel (1. Mos. 32/28)). A historical anomaly.

267 27/77a: “And it (the Quran*) certainly is a Guide - - -.” A book with that many mistakes and worse, certainly is no Guide – at least not a good or reliable one.

*268 27/77b: “And it (the Quran*) certainly is - - - a Mercy to those who believe.” With all its aversion against knowledge (except religious (Islam) and related knowledge – f.x. astronomy to follow the dates, special days, etc. exactly), its demand for hate and war, its dark and total dominance over all aspects of life, etc., - and the suppression of half its members (the women) - it is no mercy even to believers.

269 27/77c: "- - - certainly - - -". See 2>/2b above.

270 27/77d: "- - - those who believe". Muslims.

271 27/78a: "Verily - - -". With so much wrong in the Quran, not much are clear verities unless there are external proofs.

272 27/78b: "Verily, thy (Muhammad's/Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) will decide between them - - -". Only possible if he exists and is a supernatural being.

273 27/78c: "- - - He (Allah*) is Exalted in Might - - -". He in case never has proved it.

274 27/78d: "- - - He (Allah*) is - - - All-Knowing". Not if the Quran is representative for his knowledge". Also see 2/233h above.

275 27/79a: "So put thy (Muslim's*) trust in Allah - - -". May be a bit risky as long as Allah never has proved even his existence and never in 1400 years provably has helped one single person.

276 27/79b: "- - - trust - - -". See 2/2b above.

277 27/79c: “- - - for thou art (on the path of) manifest Truth (the contents of the Quran*)”. But the contents of the Quran is a mixed lot, and maximum some of it really is true - see all the mistakes.

278 27/79d: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

279 27/79e: "- - - the Truth". See 2/2b above.

280 27/80a: "Truly - - -". see 2/2b above.

281 27/80b: "- - - thou (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

282 27/80c: "- - - (non-Muslims* do not listen*) when they turn back in retreat". This also goes for Muslims. But there is one difference: Some non-Muslims have knowledge, and know something it wrong with the Quran. Muslims have belief, and believe everything there is right.

283 27/81a: "Nor canst thou (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

284 27/81b: "Nor canst thou (Muhammad*) be a guide to the blind - - -". Definitely not if he uses the Quran as a guidebook.

285 27/81c: "- - - (those*) who believe in Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -". Muslims.

286 27/81d: “- - - Our (Allah*) Signs - - -.” There are no logically reliable signs from/about Allah in all the Quran - or anywhere else. See 2/39b or 2/99 above.

287 27/82a: ”And when the Word is fulfilled against them (the unjust), We shall produce from the earth a Beast to (face) them - - -.” What is this beast? Nobody knows – but A. Yusuf Ali did propose it was a symbol for materialism (YA3313) - Muslims f.x. proved to be very materialistic in all their wars and raids for stealing/robbing. It also may be a reference to the Beast in the Bible (See 27/82b just below). Who knows?

288 27/82b: "- - - We (Allah*) shall produce from the earth a Beast - - -". This sentence is an enigma in the Quran. It may be a vague legend made from the text in Revelations in NT - chapter 13 and 17 (f.x. 17/3) talk about beasts, and Rev. 13/11-18 tells about a beast "coming out of the earth" (and chapter 12 about a dragon).

289 27/82c: "- - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral rules and partly unjust laws. Compare to "do unto others like you want othes do unto you" and judge yourself.

290 27/82d: "- - - for that mankind did not believe with assurance in Our (Allah*)s Signs." As there is not a single sign clearly proving Allah, and as the claimed holy book is full of errors, this is not the least strange. It would be naivety and stupidity to do so, as in all aspects of life the most sure way to be cheated, is to indulge in blind belief - and that is just what Islam demands and glorifies.

291 27/82e: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Signs.” Wrong. See 27/81b, 2/39b and 2/99 above.

292 27/83a: "One Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

293 27/83b: "One Day We (Allah*) shall gather together - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says it is Yahweh who will do this, 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.

294 27/83c: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Signs - - -“. Wrong. See 27/81b, 2/39b and 2/99 above.

295 27/84a: "Until, when they (non-Muslims*) come (before the Judgment Seat, (Allah) will say - - -". One of the many things which is not proved is that there will be a judgment day like the one the Quran claims - and in case if it is run by Allah, or f.x. by Yahweh. If it is run by Yahweh, his rules for accepting to Heaven or neot, are so different from Allah's (one of the 120% sure proofs for that the two claimed gods are not the same one), that the result for many a soul may be dramatically better - or worse. 

296 27/84b: “- - - My (Allah’s*) Signs - - -“. Wrong. See 27/81 and 2/99 above.

297 27/84c: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran talks about knowledge it practically always is religious or related knowledge. (Anything else was "foreign knowledge" and disregarded. Also see 26/83a).

298 27/85: "- - - wrongdoing - - -". Normally "Quran-speak" for not believing in Islam.

299 27/86a: "- - - We (Allah*) made the Night - - - and the Day - - -". Two of the many natural phenomena Muhammad claimed for his god. They are without any value as indication or proof for Allah unless Islam proves it really is Allah who makes them.

300 27/86b: “See they not that We (Allah*) have made the Night for them (non-Muslims/humans*) to rest in - - - Verily, in this are signs for any people that believe”. Muhammad got this 180 degrees wrong. Animals active in daytime have adapted to the periods of darkness by using it for inactivity (whereas animals active at night use the periods of light for inactivity because in day it often is more dangerous) - it is not the other way round. Also if we had had permanent light through hundreds of millions of years, life had adapted to that and to the possibility of permanent ability to do things - making humans more efficient and saving them from the extra dangers found in the darkness. This also goes for bodily and mental processes now taking place at night.

And still we miss even a grain of proofs for that Allah is involved.

301 27/86c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

302 27/86d: "Verily, in this are Signs for any people that believe". There is an irony in claiming that here are in verity signs, when they use "signs" which are not verified, and thus invalid as proofs.

303 27/86e: "- - - Signs - - -". There nowhere in the Quran or anywhere else is one single sign proving Allah - they all and without exception rest on nothing or on other not proved claims or statements. There is no exception to this anywhere (except perhaps the ones "borrowed" from the Bible, but they in case prove Yahweh).

304 27/86f: "- - - people who believe - - -". Muslims.

305 27/87a: "- - - the Day when the Trumpet will be sounded - - -" = The Day of Doom.

306 27/87b: "- - - then (when the Day of Doom starts*) will be smitten with terror those who are in the heavens (plural and wrong*) - - -". There is not given reason for why the ones in Heaven will be afraid - they should be secure.

307 27/87c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

308 27/87d: "- - - all shall (at the Day of Doom*) come to His (Allah's*) (presence) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh will rule this day.

309 27/88: "- - - He (Allah*) is well acquainted with all that ye do". See f.x. 2/233h or 27/74 above.

##310 27/89a: "If any do good, good will (accrue) to them therefrom - - -". The good things you do here on Earth will accumulate and count in your favor at the Day of Doom. But beware that this also goes for bad deeds - and not least: What are good deeds and what are bad deeds in Islam, is not necessarily the same as in other religions. In spite of loud claims of being "the Religion of Peace", Islam is a war religion, and its ethical and moral codes are "adjusted" accordingly. It also is a very fascistic religion, which also influences its ideologies and its ethical and moral codes. Well, in the end it mainly will be the balance between your good and bad deeds which will decide whether you will end in Hell or Heaven - the goodness of Allah and forgiving counts, but it is not as essential as the love and goodness and forgiving of Yahweh in NT (there actually is little about love in the Quran, except some among close persons).

311 27/89b: "- - - do good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

312 27/89c: "- - - (those who do much good*) will be secure from terror that Day". See 27/89a+b above. If you f.x. have terrorized or killed enough non-Muslims in Jihad, you will be safe.

313 27/89d: "- - - that Day". The Day of Doom.

314 27/90a: Punishment. See 3/77b above.

315 27/90b: "- - - do evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Also see 27/89a above.

316 27/90c: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

317 27/90d: "Do ye (people*) receive a reward (at the Day of Doom*) other than that which ye have earned by your deeds?" As said in the Quran it mainly are your good and bad deeds which counts this day.

***318 27/91a: “For me (Muhammad*), I have been commanded to serve the Lord (Allah*) of this City (Mecca - this is from 615-616 AD when Muhammad still lived there*) - - - “. This is a serious one: It is Muhammad who is speaking once more - - - in a book presumed to be copy of a “mother book” in Paradise, a book which may be existed from eternity or perhaps was made by Allah. Pikthall and Dawood both camouflage this very revealing mistake (there are a few more where either angles (37/164-166) or Muhammad speaks) by adding the word “say:”, but that is not in the original, according to Ibn Warraq, “Why I am not a Muslim”, p.175. Dishonest by Pikthall and by Dawood in case. But then it happens you meet dishonesty when Muslims tries to “explain” things - even in books you should believe were intellectually of high quality and moral. (Like Al-Azhar University, Cairo, certifying that the Big Flood could be explained by the filling up of the Mediterranean See. They know very well that both the time and the way it happened prohibit that explanation - some 5 – 6 million years ago and “slowly” over a period of perhaps 100 years, (though there is a new Spanish theory that there was a sudden, large break-through 5.33 million years ago, and that it was filled up in ca. 2 years - but even according to this theory the water the worst periods rose peacefully and sluggishly 50 cm an hour) and not least; wrong place, as the Garden of Eden is believed to have been situated in what is now south Iraq (if it ever existed)). And how could the slow filling up of the Mediterranean explain that the ark ended on a 2089 m high mountain, which it did according to the Quran?

Anyhow a nice moment for Muhammad – he liked power. (Just look at how he glued himself to his platform of power; his god).

319 27/91b: "- - - Him (Allah*) Who has sanctified it (the town Mecca*) - - -". One more proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god: To Allah Mecca is very holy and central, whereas neither Yahweh, nor any other in the Bible even mentions it one single time - not in any connection.

320 27/91c: "- - - (Allah*) to whom (belong) all things - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.

321 27/91d: "- - - I (Muhammad*) am commanded to be - - -". Similar to 27/91a above - Muhammad speaking in a book pretended to be billions of years old.

322 27/92a: "- - - if any accepts the guidance (by Muhammad*) - - -". Not much guidance in a man relying - or at least claiming so - on a guide-book as full of mistakes, etc. as the Quran.

323 27/92b: "- - - if any accepts the guidance (by Muhammad*), they do it for the good of their own souls - - -". Wrong if the Quran is a made up book, and even more so if there somewhere exists a real god they are prohibited from looking for.

324 27/92c: “I (Muhammad’) am only a Warner”. That was in 615 – 616 AD. From 622 he fast became a strongman, warlord and dictator – and his scriptures made contradictions and abrogations. Much was abrogated and contradicted when Muhammad grew military strong after 622 AD and the religion was changed to one of war and robbery and conquest.” This verse is contradicted and often “killed” (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).

325 27/93a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a above and see if he deserves it.

326 27/93b: “- - - Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah or anything. See 2/39 above.

327 27/93c: "- - - thy (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) is not unmindful of all that ye do". A promise to the good ones, a warning to the bad ones - - - If Allah exists, if he is a god (and not f.x. from the dark forces - like parts of f.x. the Quran's moral code may indicate), and if the Quran has told the full truth and only the truth - which is not the case.
